Posted: Dec. 7, 2017 10:32 AM

Oroville Olive and Citrus grower Jamie Johansson has been elected new President of the California Farm Bureau Federation.  Johansson also operates an olive oil company, Lodestar Farms. He is a former Oroville City Councilman.
Johansson succeeds Paul Wenger of Modesto, who served 8 years in office.
Shannon Douglass of Orland, was elected first Vice President. She is an owner of Douglass Ranch, which raises beef cattle, sunflowers, corn and forage crops. 
The election  highlighted the final day of the 99th California Farm Bureau Federation meeting in Garden Grove.
"Californians want diverse and affordable food, and Farm Bureau needs to show how that diversity also comes with great complexity, in terms of the tools and resources needed to grow food in this state," said Johansson, who went on to say that, "Ultimately, what Farm Bureau does is to protect the creativity California farmers and ranchers need to provide the diversity our customers demand."
The CFBF has nearly 40,000 members state wide and is part of a nationwide network of more than 5.5 million Farm Bureau members.
