Meanwhile, Tina McLaughlin is the new assistant secretary while Frank McClean is the new vice chair.
The new livestock representative for the county is Neville Myles and George Starritt will serve on the animal health committee.
Hugh Kelly was also elected to the grain committee, Andrew McShea will be Donegal’s farm business rep and Donal Logue will be on the national potato committee.
