Grundmann elected to OFB board of directors
Pottawatomie County farmer John Grundmann was elected to represent District 8 on the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Board of Directors during the 71st OFB Annual Meeting in Oklahoma City, Nov. 10, 2012.
In addition to farming and ranching, Grundmann owns and operates Valley View Pecan Company with his wife, Janice, and son, Josh. The commercial and custom pecan shelling operation is located in Shawnee.
Grundmann has been involved in Oklahoma Farm Bureau since 1977 and said he is eager to serve Oklahoma's farmers and ranchers.
"I really appreciate the grassroots process of Farm Bureau, and I look forward to working with our members as we develop policy to support Oklahoma agriculture and rural living," Grundmann said. "It is so important that OFB members participate in the process and feel their voices are being heard, and I hope to encourage them to get involved."
Grundmann has been on the Pottawatomie County Farm Bureau board since 1994 and has served as president since 1996. He has participated in several OFB Congressional Action Tours to Washington, D.C., and represented OFB on other trips to the nation's Capitol. Grundmann was also a member of the AFBF Commodity Advisory Committee for three years.
The Grundmanns live near Shawnee, where they raise cattle, hay and pecans.
