South Dakota Stock Growers Set Policy, Elect New President

South Dakota Stock Growers Set Policy, Elect New President

Over the weekend South Dakota Stock Grower members elected a new President and approved policies for the coming year. Stock Grower’s Executive Director Silvia Christen says their members are supporting the current rewrite of the Country of Origin Labeling law and want the Beef Check Off program strengthened and made more transparent.

Christen says because President Shane Kolb was term limited, the members chose Bob Fortune of Belvidere as their new President. She says he brings tremendous experience to the job.

Christen says the rest of their officer team consists of Bill Kluck of Mud butte as Vice President and regional vice presidents, Randy Volmer of Rapid City, Vaughn Meyer of Reva and Marvin Jessen of Highmore.
