From the Capital Press

Preserving tax exemptions for Washington farmers is the top priority for the new Washington Association of Wheat Growers president.

Edwall, Wash., dryland wheat farmer Kevin Klein recently took over the reins of the organization during the Tri-State Grain Growers Conference in Spokane. The presidency is a one-year term. Officers typically move through different leadership positions. Klein replaces Colfax, Wash., farmer Larry Cochran, who moves into the past president position.

Washington sales tax exemptions for farmers expire in the next year. Read the rest of the story here.
