Frederick Re-Elected to Dairy Farmers of America Board
Larry Frederick, a dairy farmer from Baring, has been re-elected to serve on Dairy Farmers of America, Inc.'s (DFA) Board of Directors, representing the Cooperative's Central Area. He will serve a two-year term.
In partnership with his two sons and wife, Frederick milks 88 dairy cows and raises beef cows. The Fredericks also farm 1,000 acres of corn, soybeans, alfalfa and grass hay.
Frederick serves as a member on the boards of Roberts Dairy and Midwest Dairy Association. In addition, he is secretary of the St. Louis Division of the Midwest Dairy Association and a board member on the St. Louis Dairy Council.
DFA's grassroots structure ensures grassroots representation and leadership by the dairy farmer owner-members of the organization. Leaders are elected by members from each of DFA's seven regional Areas for positions at the local district level, on Area Councils and for the national 51-member dairy producer Board. These elected leaders are responsible for guiding management and establishing the policies and business direction of the Cooperative.
