Wisconsin Farm Bureau has a new Director of Government Relations. The organization announced Friday they have hired former legislator and Assistant DATCP Secretary Keith Ripp. Ripp also manages the family’s crop and dairy heifer farm near Lodi.
WFBF Chief Administrative Officer Kim Pokorny says Ripp brings a strong voice to our lobbying team and as a farmer will be able to serve members well at the Capitol.
Karen Gefvert will continue to serve the government relations role until October 18th when she transitions to a new role as Farm Bureau’s Innovation and Engagement Strategist.
