Hunnicutt: Getting involved to get things done

At the Nebraska Corn Growers annual meeting in December, members elected Brandon Hunnicutt of Giltner as president and Carl Sousek of Prague as vice president.

Robert Pore of the Grand Island Independent recently did a feature on Hunnicutt. The article says Hunnicutt is "tech savvy". He does subscribe to this blog via email...so maybe we can convince him to guest write a post or two this year on technology and agriculture or whatever else is on his mind. (What do you say, Brandon?)

A few lines from the article are below - the quotes are from Hunnicutt - but click here to check out the full article. Good stuff.

"It’s a very good and worthwhile organization," he said. "When you see what’s going on around you, you feel like you need to get involved, whether it’s regulatory issues or the political process."

He said being a farmer not only means tending to your crops, but also tending to the industry in which you’re involved.

"No matter what small community you live in, there are always those who sit and gripe at the coffee shop or at the bar," Hunnicutt said. "You can gripe all you want, but if you don’t get involved, you can’t get things done."
