YANKTON (AP) - Volga farmer Scott VanderWal has been elected as vice president of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

WNAX-AM reports that VanderWal, president of the South Dakota Farm Bureau, is the first ever from the organization to serve at the executive level of the national organization.

VanderWal has been the South Dakota Farm Bureau president since June of 2004 and served on the national board for 10 years. He says he's ready to put his leadership experience to work to accomplish the organization's goals and become an even more effective voice for American agriculture.

VanderWal says agriculture faces many political challenges in the year ahead, especially with the prospect of a new administration.

He will serve with newly elected President Zippy Duvall of Georgia.
