Nebraska Wheat Growers Association elects new executive board member

Mark Spurgin, a wheat farmer and cattle rancher from Paxton, Nebraska, was recently elected to serve on the board of directors for the Nebraska Wheat Growers Association. He will fill the vacancy left by Mark Daum who decided to not seek re-election to the board.

Spurgin owns and operates Spurgin Inc., a diversified dryland-irrigated farm and small feedlot located in Keith, Lincoln and Perkins counties. He raises wheat, corn, edible beans, soybeans, popcorn and feed crops.

A graduate of the University of Nebraska, the Colorado School of Banking, and the Command and General Staff College of Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Spurgin has served on many other agriculture committees and organizations. He’s been a member of the West Central District and Keith County Farm Advisory Committee, the Keith County Planning and Zoning Board, the District 7 Commissioner Association, the Nebraska Cattlemen, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and the Nebraska Crop Improvement Association. Spurgin also traveled with the Governor and the US Meat Export Federation on trade missions to Japan, China, Mexico and Cuba. Spurgin is also a member of the American Legion Post No. 303.

“We’re excited to have Mark join our board of directors,” said Michael Thomas Jr., NWGA president. “He brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience and will be an asset to our organization.”

The Nebraska Wheat Growers Association is a nonprofit, membership-based organization that works to improve and stabilize the profitability of the Nebraska wheat producer. NWGA works to do this by representing Nebraska’s wheat producers in state and national policy and providing educational opportunities to producers and consumers.
