LIPPERT ELECTED TO ASI EXECUTIVE BOARD


Tue, Feb 2nd, 2010
Posted in State of Minnesota

DENVER, Colo. - Mike Lippert, Olivia, Minn., was elected to represent the National Lamb Feeders Association (NLFA) on the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) Executive Board at the 2010 ASI/NLFA Convention in Nashville, Tenn.



Lippert, a second-generation lamb feeder, continues to run part of an operation established by his father in 1957. Lippert mainly purchases lambs from North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Minnesota, at 80 to 100 pounds, feeds them out to market weight at 135 to 150 pounds and ships them to major packers. In addition, he farms corn, soybeans, alfalfa and vegetables with his brother Dan. Lippert is married to wife, Sharon, and has one adult daughter, Michelle.



He earned a bachelor's degree in business management from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minn., and has used that knowledge in his feeding and farming operation.

Lippert served on the NLFA Executive Board from 1980-1992, served as vice president for the organization from 2005-2007 and, most recently, just ended his two-year term as NLFA president. The immediate past president of NLFA goes on to represent the organization on the ASI Executive Board.



"I know most of the people on the board, so I think that my ability to communicate and work with them will make it easier to accomplish the goals of the board of directors and the voting membership," says Lippert of his election to the ASI Executive Board. "I am there to represent NLFA, so I am going to try to encourage and promote policies that will benefit lamb feeders and the whole industry."



ASI is a national trade organization supported by 45 state sheep associations, benefiting the interests of more than 82,000 sheep producers.
