SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Delegates to National Farmers Union’s 122nd Anniversary Convention today cast a unanimous ballot to reelect Rob Larew and Jeff Kippley as the organization’s President and Vice President, respectively. Each will serve another two-year term.

“It’s an honor to have the trust and confidence of Farmers Union members across the country and a privilege to fight on their behalf each and every day,” said Larew. “I look forward to continuing to work alongside Vice President Kippley on behalf of family farm agriculture.” 

As NFU President, Larew has overseen four years of consecutive membership growth since his election in 2020, as well as the development and execution of NFU’s Fairness for Farmers campaign that has successfully brought public awareness to the unhealthy level of corporate consolidation in the agriculture industry. Before his time as President, Larew worked in Congress and at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and served for four years as the NFU’s Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Communications, from 2016 to 2020. Larew and his family still operate their family farm in Greenville, West Virginia.

Kippley, of Aberdeen, South Dakota, begins his second term as NFU Vice President. Kippley and his family raise cattle, corn and soybeans and operate a tax business serving family farmers in their community.

“I got involved with Farmers Union to build a better future for my family and community, so it means the world to me that other Farmers Union families appreciate and trust President Larew and I to continue advocating on their behalf,” said Kippley. “There’s a lot of important work to be done in the next two years and we’re ready to fight for our members.”
