For the first time in 16 years, the American Farm Bureau Federation has elected a new president. Zippy Duvall is a lifelong dairy farmer from Georgia.
Duvall first became active with Farm Bureau during the 1970s after his father encouraged him to get involved.
“He encouraged me to manage time with my farm, but also to get out of the fence-rows and make a difference,” he says.
Duvall has been president of the Georgia Farm Bureau since 2006, holding positions at the state and national level. He replaces Bob Stallman, a Texas rice and cattle producer who held the office since Jan. 13, 2000.
