Arizona Farm Bureau President Kevin Rogers has announced his candidacy for president of the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) for an election scheduled in January 2016.
Rogers, a fourth generation central Arizona cotton, alfalfa, wheat, barley, and corn farmer, has served 12 years as the Arizona Farm Bureau president.
“I'm honored to declare my candidacy at a time when great opportunity is before us," said Rogers.
Current AFBF President Bob Stallman announced in early July that he will not seek re-election in January 2016.
Rogers is a fourth-generation Arizona farmer who farms with his wife Janel and extended family.
He is an officer of the Arizona Cotton Growers Association and serves on the National Cotton Council and the USDA Cotton Board. Rogers serves on the USDA Air Quality Task Force.
The election will be held during the AFBF annual meeting, Jan. 10-13 in Orlando, Fla.
