PULLINS NAMED OHIO FARM BUREAU FEDERATION DIRECTOR

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Pullins has been named director for Ohio Farm Bureau Federation's (OFBF) business services and commodity relations department and general manager of the organization's subsidiary, the Ohio Agricultural Marketing Association, according to C. William Swank, OFBF executive vice president.
 He fills the post which opened after the retirement of Paul Slade, who held the position as vice president of the department for 18 years.
 Pullins, who previously served as Farm Bureau's director of contract services, will continue to act as executive director of the Ohio Fruit Growers Society and Ohio Vegetable and Potato Growers Association.
 "The business services area provides an important service to Farm Bureau members, especially when you think about the electronic marketing information program, Farm Markets of Ohio and our commodity relations efforts," Pullins said. "The purpose of all these programs is to increase the income of farmers of all the commodities grown in Ohio. We also work very closely with the individual commodity organizations."
 Food safety concerns and availability of agricultural chemicals are issues influencing producers of all commodities, Pullins said. "Many of the issues like food safety hit the specialty growers first, but they'll eventually work their way into affecting all farmers."
 Prior to his post as director of contract services, Pullins, who has been with Farm Bureau since 1974, acted as an organization director in Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison and Jefferson counties, regional supervisor in northwestern Ohio and director of membership activities. He also taught vocational agriculture in Bowling Green, Ohio.
 Pullins also is a member of several commodity organizations, the National Riflemen's Association and the North Lewisburg United Methodist Church, where he has served on many church committees and as a lay leader.
 The 1972 graduate of Ohio State University with a degree in agricultural education, is also a graduate of OSU's LEAD program and is pursuing an MBA from The University of Dayton.
 He and his wife, Cathy, have three children -- Matt, 14, Sarah, 10, and Kent, 7. They operate a general livestock farm in Champaign County.
