This article is part of a series profiling candidates for the 2021 Corn Board.
Making sure the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is the leading voice in all of agriculture is the focus of Nebraska farmer Brandon Hunnicutt. Working with new partners to build a bright future for agriculture, he envisions a tomorrow where farmers communicate in a transparent, transformative way with the public. As a member of the Corn Board, he uses his wide array of experiences, while engaging listening skills, to actively foster a productive conversation that finds innovative solutions.
“NCGA is the leading voice and advocate for the corn farmer in America regardless of the situation. More importantly, though, it is truly a grassroots organization that brings together individuals with different perspectives, to do what is best for the corn industry as a whole.”
If re-elected, Hunnicutt will push NCGA to continue to drive and protect innovation and technology within the industry. Bringing in the next generation by reaching out to younger farmers on their level, he would push to develop the strongest social media presence in agriculture. By bringing together a focus on innovation, social media, and the next generation of farmers, he would work to build a stronger rural America.
Hunnicutt raises corn, soybeans, seed corn, and popcorn on his family farm. Along with his father, Daryl, and brother, Zach, he utilizes the latest technologies while integrating conservation tillage practices and cover crops, on a nearly 100 percent irrigated farm.
