Iowa Farm Bureau members have chosen to replace their current president with a farmer from Warren County.
The Des Moines Register reports that on Thursday Farm Bureau delegates picked current vice president Craig Hill to lead the organization.
Hill will replace Brooklyn dairy farmer Craig Lang who had been president since 2002. Hill farms about 1,000 acres and raises swine near Milo.
Lang, who also serves on Iowa's Board of Regents, may have lost support among delegates because of the policies he supported. For instance, a proposal he backed to require conservation practices in the next farm bill failed to gain support in September.
