ST. PAUL — Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation President Kevin Paap has announced that, after 16 years in this role, he will not seek re-election in November. Paap is the 13th president in the federation’s 102-year history.
Paap and his wife, Julie, own and operate a fourth-generation family farm in Blue Earth County. They raise corn and soybeans and have two sons, Matt and Andy, and a daughter-in-law, Samantha, along with grandson Lennox.
“I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to serve Minnesota Farm Bureau and affiliated companies for 24 years,” said Paap. “It has been a tremendous honor to be part of the Farm Bureau family. The face of the MFBF President may change, but the mission and the strength of Farm Bureau will not.”
A new MFBF president will be elected to a two-year term at the 103rd annual meeting of voting delegates on Nov. 19 in Bloomington.
