Nebraska Corn is proud and appreciative of Brandon Hunnicutt, a farmer from Giltner, Nebraska who recently termed off the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Board at the end of September. Hunnicutt served on the Board since 2017.

Hunnicutt raises corn, soybeans, seed corn, popcorn and sorghum 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.

Currently, Hunnicutt serves as the vice chairman of the Nebraska Corn Board (NCB) and on the Market Development Committee.

On the national level, Hunnicutt chaired the Governance Committee and Field-to-Market. As a member of the Commodity Classic Management Committee, he will serve as co-chair for the 2024 event.

Previously, Hunnicutt served on the Finance Committee as Corn Board liaison to the Production Technology Access and Stewardship Action Teams, chaired the Engaging Members Committee and represented the association on the Syngenta Advisory Council for Enogen. Hunnicutt is a graduate of NCGA’s Leadership At Its Best and Advanced Leadership Program.

“I appreciate the trust my fellow corn farmers throughout the U.S. put in me to represent them on the Board over the last six years,” said Hunnicutt. “There was significant change that happened in the industry as well as NCGA that I am proud to have been involved with helping bring forth. Having the opportunity, through NCGA, to be the first farmer to lead Field to Market would never have happened without being a member on the Board. I will cherish the memories of the time and the friendships made.”

Hunnicutt’s service is seen, felt and noticed on the state level.

“Nebraska Corn is beyond grateful for Brandon’s service to the corn industry on the national level, representing Nebraska well,” said Jay Reiners, Chairman of NCB. “His knowledge of the industry, full commitment to ensuring our current and next generation are positioned well to progress and ultimate sacrifice of time off his farm are forever ingrained in our thanks. As the industry grows, we have him to acknowledge for his leadership and unwavering pursuit for each farmer across the U.S.”

State delegates elect 15 farmers from across the country to serve 3-year terms representing the corn industry on the national level.
