Wisconsin dairy farmer Patty Edelburg has been the National Farmers Union vice president for the past four years and is seeking reelection. Edelburg is being challenged by Aberdeen, South Dakota farmer Jeff Kippley. “My focus is on the next generation of the family farm; our numbers are dropping and we need to turn this thing around,” Kippley told RRFN. “The corporate monopolies have been hurting our farmers; there is plenty of money in agriculture, but it is just going to the wrong spot.” NFU President Rob Larew was unopposed and was reelected with a vote of acclimation.
