Steve Boe has been hired by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation as the new district coordinator in west central Wisconsin.
Boe will be responsible for working with county Farm Bureaus to develop and implement programs to serve Farm Bureau members and to coordinate membership recruitment and retention efforts.
"I am honored to be working for Farm Bureau in western Wisconsin and am eager to work with farmers and agriculturists," Boe said.
Boe will serve Farm Bureau's District 4, which includes the counties of Buffalo, Eau Claire, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe and Trempealeau. He begins his duties on July 11.
"Steve's background in agricultural education and public policy and his farm ties in Jackson County will be very helpful as he works with county Farm Bureaus in District 4," said Bob Leege, Wisconsin Farm Bureau's Executive Director of Member Relations.
Boe grew up on a farm near Taylor in Jackson County. The UW-River Falls graduate has degrees in agricultural education and political science. He has worked as an agri-science teacher at Independence High School, a congressional intern for Congressman Ron Kind in Washington D.C. and most recently as a research assistant for State Rep. Mark Radcliffe in the Wisconsin State Assembly in Madison.
Boe is a member of the Jackson County Farm Bureau and a 2009 graduate of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Institute leadership course.
