Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/05/2019
The Baraboo-based Foremost Farms USA will soon have a new president and CEO. Board members announced that Greg Schlafer will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the cooperative, effective December 2.
Schlafer most recently served as vice president of Food Group Sales & Marketing at J.R. Simplot Company. Prior to that he was president of Lamb Weston, a division of ConAgra Foods, Inc. He also served on several boards including the International Dairy,
Deli & Bakery Association, and the North American Millers Association.
"Foremost produces award-winning dairy products and it's an honor to join the team," said Schlafer. "The organization is a cooperative that exists to benefit the hard-working farm families who own it. I'm excited to help Foremost enable the business objectives
of its member-owners while meeting customer needs."
Schlafer assumes leadership of the company following the retirement of Michael Doyle.
