2016 NWFU Convention Speaker Donn Teske (NFU VP)

Grandpa, Marie, 6015, Wheaton park.jpg

Ma and I and 4 kids and 6 grandkids operate a fifth-generation beef cow/calf operation on the native Bluestem pastures on the east edge of the Flint Hills in Northeast Kansas at Wheaton, in Pottawatomie county. We crop a little between the rocks….

From 1973 until 1994 we farmed full time on the family farm. Much of that time involved in dairying.

 I am in my fifteenth year as Kansas Farmers Union president and very much enjoy representing the organization. I am in my 3rd year as National Farmers Union Vice President. Previous to VP I served 3 years as NFU Treasurer.

Previous to my position as KFU president I worked for the Kansas Rural Center for five years and also for Kansas State University Ag Econ as a farm analyst for five years.

In the summer of 2010 I had the opportunity to work with the village of Keur Ali Gueye in Senegal Africa on their millet production. It was a life-changing experience for me.

I’m involved in a boatload of committees, both associated with Farmers Union and others, but all involve rural quality of life or history, my two passions.

2016 NWFU Convention Speaker Sarah Red-Laird (Bee Girl)

Sarah Red-Laird is the founder and Executive Director of the Bee Girl organization, with a mission to inspire and empower communities to conserve bees and their habitat. Her love of bees and their honey began in Southern Oregon, on a little farm at the end of a country road. There resided two hives of honey bees near her aunt's cabin. She was fascinated with the colonies, the beekeeper, and the honeycomb they produced. After high school, she traveled throughout the West. Her adventurous spirit landed her jobs on fishing boats, helicopters, sea kayaks, ski mountains, fire engines, and even a gold rush era saloon. She finally brought her affinity for beekeeping to fruition at the University of Montana, Missoula. She chose honey bees and Colony Collapse Disorder as her Davidson Honors College research thesis, and her relationship with the bees picked up right where it left off. Sarah is also the US Ambassador of the International Bee Research Association's (IBRA) BEEWORLD project, the Kids and Bees Director for the American Beekeeping Federation, a New York Bee Sanctuary Advisory Board Member, a mentor in the Oregon State Master Beekeepers Program, Apiary Manager for Southern Oregon University's Center for Sustainability, and the Oregon Outreach Coordinator for the Bee Friendly Farming Initiative. When she is not tirelessly working with bees, beekeepers, kids, farmers, land managers, and policy makers, Sarah heads for the hills with a camera, large backpack, fishing rod, bike or snowboard, and her best friend, Sophie the Yellow Lab.
