BROOKINGS – Bradley Cihak has been elected as the new president of the South Dakota State University collegiate chapter of South Dakota Farmers Union. Chihak, 21, is a senior at SDSU majoring in agricultural education. He was recently elected president by a group of collegiate Farmers Union members during the organization’s annual meeting this spring.

A native of Tyndall, Cihak was active in the Farmers Union youth education program in high school, earning the title of torchbearer, the highest honor a youth can receive in the Farmers Union youth education program.

“I’m so excited about the opportunity to serve the collegiate Farmers Union on campus and look forward to the opportunity to work with my fellow students,” Cihak said. “Through educational programs and fun activities, I hope we can continue to build off of past successes at SDSU and further the cause of Farmers Union on campus.”

South Dakota Farmers Union’s SDSU collegiate chapter includes several student-members on campus who participate in various activities throughout the year, including a ‘Farmer’s Share’ feed each spring to educate college students about how much of the retail food dollar actually goes to the farmer. They are also active in the Hobo Day Parade and other activities on campus.
