2016 Annual Convention & Meeting
Walla Walla Community College Walla Walla, WA
2016 NWFU Convention Speaker Donn Teske (NFU VP)
Ma and I and 4 kids and 6 grandkids operate a fifth-generation beef cow/calf operation on the native Bluestem pastures on the east edge of the Flint Hills in Northeast Kansas at Wheaton, in Pottawatomie county. We crop a little between the rocks….
From 1973 until 1994 we farmed full time on the family farm. Much of that time involved in dairying.
I am in my fifteenth year as Kansas Farmers Union president and very much enjoy representing the organization. I am in my 3rd year as National Farmers Union Vice President. Previous to VP I served 3 years as NFU Treasurer.
Previous to my position as KFU president I worked for the Kansas Rural Center for five years and also for Kansas State University Ag Econ as a farm analyst for five years.
In the summer of 2010 I had the opportunity to work with the village of Keur Ali Gueye in Senegal Africa on their millet production. It was a life-changing experience for me.
I’m involved in a boatload of committees, both associated with Farmers Union and others, but all involve rural quality of life or history, my two passions.
