Willott Elected To Missouri Corn Board
(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.)–Brian Willott of Mexico, Mo., was recently elected to the Missouri Corn Merchandising Council (MCMC) board of directors. Willott began his volunteer service to corn farmers effective Oct. 1.
“It was an honor to receive Missouri Corn’s nomination and be elected by fellow growers,” notes Willott. “I look forward to representing growers in northeast Missouri and serving growers across the state. My unique experiences in policy research, farm management, and sharing our farm’s practices with others, have fostered a strong belief in promoting commodities. I look forward to working alongside fellow growers to increase awareness and markets for Missouri corn farmers.”
Willott replaces Jay Schutte of Benton City, Mo., who served the maximum of 12 years on the MCMC board of directors. He will be nominated as a candidate for the Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA) board at the organization’s annual meeting in January.
“We look forward to welcoming Brian to the board and thank him for volunteering his time on behalf of the industry,” says incoming MCMC Chairman Matt Lambert of Laclede. “We welcome his perspective as our organization tackles new challenges and works to increase markets for Missouri corn farmers. Brian will be a great addition to our already strong board of grower-leaders.”
The MCMC board of directors is comprised of 14 farmers elected from across the state. This volunteer board was formed in 1984 with the passage of a corn checkoff and is dedicated to market development, research, and education. To learn more, visit www.mocorn.org.
