As corn harvest winds down across the state, the Missouri Corn Growers Association and the Missouri Corn Merchandising Council have cultivated new leadership for the 2009-10 fiscal year. The new officer teams began duties on Oct. 1.

Keith Witt, Warrenton, was elected MCGA president. Rob Korff, Norborne, is the new vice president. Kevin Hurst, Tarkio, is the new secretary-treasurer.

Newly elected chairman of the MCMC is Kenny McNamar of Gorin. Other officers elected were: Bill Thiel, Marshall, vice chairman; Paul Gross, Corder, secretary; and Jim Stuever, Dexter, treasurer.

Mark Goldinger of Hannibal Mike Moreland of Harrisonville, and Jay Fischer of Jefferson City, were elected to the Missouri Corn board of directors by growers in their districts.  Goldinger represents corn growers from District 3 and replaces board member Charles Krueger of Kahoka. In District 4, Moreland replaces Kerry Rose of Lamar.  Fischer fills the District 5 position, replacing retiring grower-leader Terry Hilgedick of Hartsburg, who has served the maximum nine years. Re-elected to the Missouri Corn board was Jim Stuever, of Dexter, who will begin his third year of service effective Oct. 1. 

Several Missouri Corn grower-leaders have been appointed to serve on National Corn Growers Association Action Teams and committees.

Additionally, Kenny McNamar has been reappointed to the Research and Business Development Action Team, Paul Gross will continue to serve on the Mycotoxin Task Force, Billy Thiel will represent Missouri on the Grower Services Action Team and Kevin Hurst has been named to the Ethanol Committee.
