After 16 years in his role as the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation President, Kevin Paap has decided to not seek re-election this November. Paap is just the 13th president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation in its 102 years in existence.

Paap runs and operates their family’s fourth generation farm in Blue Earth County, Minnesota, with his wife, Julie. The couple raises soybeans and corn crop.

Paap has enjoyed his time as the MFBF president over the years.

“I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to serve Minnesota Farm Bureau and affiliated companies for 24 years,” said Paap. “It has been a tremendous honor to be part of the Farm Bureau family. The face of the MFBF President may change, but the mission and the strength of Farm Bureau will not.”

On Nov. 19, 2021 a new MFBF president will be elected for a two-year term at the 103rd annual meeting of voting delegates. The meeting will take place in Bloomington, Minn.
