NE Game & Parks Outdoor Education Center

4703 N 44th Street, Lincoln, NE

Nebraska Grain and Feed Association is offering a one-day hands-on workshop featuring the latest information on corn and soybean grain quality. The program is designed for grain handlers and producers. Information from the workshop will help participants recognize the different types of damage that occur in these grains and how the damages affect grade. Presentations on the grading and appeal process will be given. Participants will learn what the official U.S. grades are and how to obtain a representative sample. The workshop will be instructed by Federal Grain Inspection Service inspectors including Clayton Hanson.

Each class will be limited to 35 registered participants. Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook. A registration fee of $95 for members and $125 for nonmembers is required to cover the costs associated with instruction, lunch, materials and equipment.  If you would like to attend one grain grading class the registration fee will be $45 and will not include lunch.

Board Selects Kristi Block as Next Association Executive Vice President

Your association board of directors have selected Kristi Block as the next executive vice president to succeed Rich Sanne, who plans to retire in March 2017. Block joins NeGFA from First Five Nebraska where she has a broad range of experience in planning and promotion, membership recruitment and retention, writing, and collaboration.

Block grew up on a corn and soybean farm where her family also raised cattle. She has been involved in Nebraska agriculture her entire life. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Journalism from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and a Master of Business Administration degree from Midland University in Fremont, Neb.

“I am thrilled to have Kristi join our organization,” said John Meuret of J.E. Meuret Grain Company of Brunswick, Neb., president of NeGFA. “Kristi’s leadership experience and passion for agriculture are perfect to continue to lead the NeGFA.” 

After Sanne informed the board in August 2016 of his intention to retire, the search for his replacement began. “From the beginning of this process, I expressed my desire for a smooth transition,” Sanne said. “I offer my sincere congratulations to Kristi and I look forward to working with her and the board to make sure this organization continues its strong commitment to our industry.” Sanne will leave the organization after serving the trades for 20 years.
