Robert L. Brown
Throughout his life, Robert Brown has been associated with agriculture. As a young man he worked running cattle on a ranch north of Salmon, at a grain store and for other farmers in the Idaho Falls area, eventually returning to the family farm. He took over his father’s dry farm of about 3,000 acres, and went on to rent additional acreage, raising irrigated wheat, barley and hay. He takes pride in the fact he lives on, and still operates, a small portion of his grandfather’s original farm homesteaded in the 1880’s.
Brown has been active with grain growing associations throughout the state. He has received the Life Achievement Award from the Idaho Grain Producers Association and a Distinguished Service Award by the Idaho Wheat Commission. He is also a member of Bonneville County and Idaho Grain Producers, serving as Bonneville County President and a representative to the Idaho Grain Producers.
The Browns are the parents of two children.
