NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jerry A. Newby, president of the Alabama Farmers Federation, joined five other state presidents as newly elected members of the American Farm Bureau Federation's Board of Directors at the organization's 87th annual meeting in Nashville earlier this month.

Newby, a row crop and cattle farmer from Limestone County who was first elected president of Alabama's largest agricultural organization in 1998, joined Leland Hogan of Utah, Michael White of New Mexico, Scott VanderWal of South Dakota, Marshall Coyle of Kentucky and Lacy Upchurch of Tennessee as newly elected members.

Members re-elected to the board were: Midwest Region -- Steve Baccus, Kansas; Charles Kruse, Missouri; and Philip Nelson, Illinois; Southern Region -- Bruce Hiatt, Virginia; Carl Loop, Florida; Stanley Reed, Arkansas; David Waide, Mississippi; and David Winkles, South Carolina; Northeast Region -- John Lincoln, New York, and Earl "Buddy" Hance, Maryland; and Western Region -- Barry Bushue, Oregon.

AFBF President Bob Stallman, a cattle and rice producer from Columbus, Texas, was re-elected to a fourth two-year term, and Steve Appel, a wheat and barley producer from Dusty, Wash., was re-elected vice president.

Also at the AFBF Annual Meeting, the Alabama Farmers Federation was welcomed as a new affiliate.
