USGC announced that it has elected the new members of its board of directors. Josh Miller, a farmer from Indiana representing the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, was elected USGC chairman.
The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) held its Board of Delegates session on July 27 as part of its 62nd Annual Board of Delegates Meeting in Sacramento, California, focused on conducting the business of the organization and electing a new Board of Directors after two days of examining what the future may hold for American agricultural trade.
Josh Miller, a farmer from Indiana representing the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, was elected USGC chairman. “It is important to me to learn as much as I possibly can – not just about how to do the best job I can on the farm, but also to learn as much as I can about how what I do affects the world as a whole – how my efforts create global ripple effects that help sustain those who need what I grow the most,” Miller said during his incoming remarks.
Miller is a fifth-generation farmer from Anderson, Indiana, who produces corn and soybeans, primarily as a no-till row crop operation. He was elected to the Council’s officer rotation in 2019.
In addition to Miller, the delegates elected Verity Ulibarri of the United Sorghum Checkoff Program as secretary-treasurer. Gail Lierer of the Ohio Corn Marketing Program and Curt Mether and Mark Mueller of the Iowa Corn Growers Association were also elected as at-large directors.
