Tennessee's Dodson ASA vice president

JOHNNY DODSON, a soybean farmer from Dyersburg, Tenn., has been elected one of four vice presidents for the American Soybean Association for 2005-06. The election took place at the ASA's summer board of director's meeting in Washington.

The board confirmed that Bob Metz of West Browns Valley, S.D., will serve as president and Neal Bredehoeft, Alma, Mo., as chairman for 2005-06. Board members also elected Richard Ostlie from Northwood, N. D., first vice president, an office that places Ostlie in line to be ASA's president next year.

Also elected were Bob Rikli from Murdock, Neb., as secretary, and Gary Joachim from Claremont, Minn., as treasurer. The other vice presidents will be John Hoffman, Waterloo, Iowa; Dennis Jaeger from Goodwin, S.D.; and Randy DeSutter from Woodhull, Ill.

These soybean producer-leaders form the nine-member ASA Executive Committee.

“Education for grassroots soybean leaders and voting delegates will continue to be priorities as we begin work on a new farm bill that provides opportunities for increased soybean exports and a safety net that protects U.S. farmer profitability,” Metz said.

Among the new board members for ASA are Kelly Forck from Missouri, John Freemen and Ted Glaub from Arkansas and Robert Ross from Oklahoma.
