Alissa Sosnovske of Gleason appointed to Young Farmer and Agriculturist Committee
For the Tomahawk Leader
GLEASON – Alissa Sosnovske of Gleason was among new members appointed to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation (WFBF)’s Young Farmer and Agriculturist (YFA) Committee earlier this month.
The WFBF YFA Committee consists of nine couples or individuals, ages 18-35, from around the state.
“Its goal is to get more young farmers and agriculturists acquainted with and involved in Farm Bureau,” WFBF explained. “They carry out a variety of statewide initiatives, such as conferences, contests and award programs. The YFA Program is funded by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.”
Sosnovske farms with her family on their dairy farm near Gleason.
“Growing up, she was a member of 4-H, FFA and the Lincoln County Junior Dairy Committee,” WFBF stated. “Alongside her family, Alissa raises registered Holsteins and Red and White Holsteins. She manages the farm’s youngstock.”
Individuals from Sauk and Waupaca counties were also appointed to the committee.
“It is exciting to see these young members step up and assume leadership roles in our organization,” WFBF President Kevin Krentz said. “The YFA program is designed to build the next generation of Farm Bureau leaders and these appointees will surely rise to the occasion.”
