ATLANTA, Georgia — Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) President Dan Glessing was elected to the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Board of Directors at the AFBF annual convention in Atlanta.

Glessing was elected by delegates from the Midwest region to serve a one-year term. The board consists of state presidents from the Midwest, Northeast, Southern and Western regions, providing broad representation and voices on important issues affecting farming and ranching.

Glessing is a lifelong member of the Minnesota Farm Bureau, holding a variety of leadership roles at the county and state levels. He served as vice president of the organization before being elected president last November.

He and his wife, Seena, work in partnership with his family near Waverly, where they have a dairy farm in addition to growing alfalfa, corn and soybeans. The couple has three sons and a daughter, the sixth generation to live on the farm.
