A good crowd of ag media reporters stayed to the bitter end of the American Farm Bureau Federation convention in Orlando Tuesday evening to hear from the new president and vice president of the organization.

Zippy Duvall, who served as president of Georgia Farm Bureau for nine years, is the 12th president of AFBF, chosen in the first open election for the organization’s president in 30 years. Scott VanderWal has served as President of South Dakota Farm Bureau since June of 2004. Together the pair will be serving the membership of the nation’s largest general farm organization, which also set policy for the coming year during the delegate session today. Renewable fuels, governmental reform, farm policy, risk management and international trade were among the most important matters slated for action over the next 12 months.
