FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock is retiring this year after 14 years of leading the group.

Sixty-five-year-old Don Villwock tells WOWO that with things going well, it’s a good time to let someone bring in new ideas.

Villwock says the issues facing the Farm Bureau have shifted over his tenure, with the advent of social media, the rise of the locally grown food movement and new urban-rural tensions. Villwock says a migration of city dwellers to the countryside has brought complaints about the smell of livestock feeding operations to the forefront.

Farm Bureau members will elect Villwock’s successor at their annual meeting in November.
