Rick Roden to serve as the representative for District 18
The Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin board of directors appoint dairy farmer Rick Roden, Roden Echo Valley, LLC, to serve as the representative for District 18 covering Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Counties.
“Rick has been involved with agriculture groups over the years and is very eager to learn more about dairy promotion,” says Jeff Strassburg, Wittenburg dairy farmer and Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin board chair. “His experience and passion for the industry will complement the current board members.”
This appointment comes following the death of Sheboygan Falls dairy farmer and former DFW board member Dean Strauss. Roden will serve District 18 through the remaining term.
There were three candidates interested in the district seat, which will be open for election in 2022.
