Troy Henrie, a cattle rancher from Garfield County and graduate of the agriculture program at Southern Utah University, has been named the new Southern Regional manager from the Utah Farm Bureau.

Henrie, who has been on the Garfield County Farm Bureau board of directors and worked as a loan officer for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency, grew up raising Hereford cattle with his family on a ranch outside of Panguitch. In his new role as Southern Regional manager, he’ll represent agricultural communities across the southern half of the state as an advocate for farmers and ranchers.

“I am really excited for this opportunity with the Utah Farm Bureau,” Henrie said of his new assignment. “I’ve had a front-row seat to the many challenges Utah’s farmers and ranchers face. Having been a Farm Bureau board member for many years, I know of the organization’s ability to work on behalf of Utah’s farmers and ranchers to set them up in the best possible way to succeed.”

Henrie and his wife, Jodi, live in Panguitch and have four children and two grandchildren.

Spencer Gibbons, chief executive officer for the Farm Bureau, said Henrie would bring 20 years of professional experience to the position and serve the region well.

“He is deeply connected to the people, our industry, and the land in the southern part of our state,” Gibbons said. “We are excited for his common-sense approach to help solve industry challenges.”

The Utah Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm and ranch organization, with more than 34,000 member families.
