Randy Krotz No Longer CEO of U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance

U.S. Farmer’s and Rancher’s Alliance (USFRA) opted out of renewing its contract of CEO Randy Krotz. He has been the only CEO of the organization and started in 2014.

“In short, we believe it is in the best interests of USFRA to seek new leadership going forward,” Brad Greenway, USFRA chairman said in a statement to AgWeb. “To that end, we are moving immediately to begin the search for a new CEO and have developed a plan working with USFRA staff to manage the organization in the interim.”

USFRA's Board of Director's executive committee placed Krotz on administrative leave Jan. 5 and the full Board voted not to renew his contract Jan. 8. USFRA is composed of more than 100 farmer and rancher-led organizations and ag partners representing agriculture. The organization is committed to helping increase confidence and trust in agriculture.
