In late January, Brody Stapel was re-elected president of Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative by the board of directors at the co-op’s annual business meeting during the Dairy Strong conference.
Stapel has been in this role for the past year after the passing of John Pagel. Stapel will serve for the next three years.
Incumbent Jim Winn was re-elected as secretary and will serve another three-year term.
Stapel owns and operates Double Dutch Dairy in eastern Wisconsin with his brother and father. He serves on Edge’s finance committee and has traveled to Washington, D.C., to advocate on behalf of members.
Winn is a lifelong dairy farmer who co-owns Cottonwood Dairy in southwestern Wisconsin. He has served on Edge’s board since the co-op’s inception. Jim also formerly served on the board of directors of the Dairy Business Association, a state policy group in Wisconsin.
Todd Doornink remains vice president and Mitch Davis is treasurer.
