Doud to lead NMPF
The former chief agriculture negotiator for the U.S. Trade Representative’s office will lead the National Milk Producers Federation in 2024.
The NMPF Board of Directors unanimously made the decision Wednesday.
Gregg Doud tells Brownfield the dairy industry has exceptional growth potential.
“When you look at the combination of what’s going on globally in terms of the demand for protein and dairy compared to what some of the production is going on in the world, as you see reductions in Europe and challenges in places like New Zealand, I think the sky is the limit,” he says.
Doud will start in September as its chief operating officer and become president and CEO following Jim Mulhern’s retirement at the end of this year.
Doud has spent more than 30 years working in agricultural policy and economics, most recently as the chief economist of Aimpoint Research which is a global intelligence firm specializing in food and ag.
Doud tells Brownfield as a student at Kansas State University he was a past winner of the Fort Worth Dairy Cattle Judging Contest and he’s proud to represent such an innovative industry.
