(INDIANAPOLIS) – Dec. 13, 2021 – At the Indiana Farm Bureau State Convention, the delegate body reelected Randy Kron president of INFB. Kron ran against Jeremy Barron from Noble County in the election that took place on Friday, Dec. 10 in French Lick.
“I believe in this organization and what we can accomplish working together,” Kron said during his acceptance speech. “Nothing of significance can be accomplished alone, and I’m grateful I get to do that with our members.”
Kron was first elected to the role of INFB president in 2015. Prior to that, he served for 14 years as the organization’s vice president. In his acceptance speech, Kron said that planning for the future is vital to the continued success of INFB.
“So much has been accomplished, but there’s more to do,” Kron added. “I promise you that we’re going to work hard and work together. We’re going to represent agriculture in Indiana and make sure we’re at the table.”
In addition to his role at INFB, Kron serves as a board member for American Farm Bureau Federation, representing the Midwest region. He also is involved in other agriculture industry groups, including serving as INFB’s representative on the U.S. Grains Council, on the board of directors for the Indiana Grain Indemnity Corporation, and as a member of Rep. Larry Bucshon’s agricultural advisory committee.
Kron and his wife, Joyce, farm with their son, Ben, in Vanderburgh County where they raise yellow corn, white corn, soybeans and wheat. In 2021, the Krons were recipients of the Indiana Master Farmer Award, which honors farmers who have contributed heavily to Indiana agriculture and demonstrated success in farming efficiency, stewardship of natural resources and community service.
