New leaders elected to MFA board

The MFA Incorporated Board of Directors has three new members after district meetings and elections were held the last week of February.

Frank Schieber of Stanberry, Mo., was elected to represent District 1. Schieber runs a diversified farming operation with row crops, hay, pasture and beef cattle and has been a member of MFA since 1983. He replaces outgoing director Barry Kagay of Amity, Mo., whose term ended in March.

Craig Lambert of Pattonsburg, Mo., was elected as the new direc­tor for District 4, filling the position vacated by Carlton Spencer of Faucett, Mo. A member of MFA since 1980, Lambert and his two daughters raise row crops and hay and run a cow/calf operation.

Dwayne Schad of Versailles, Mo., was elected to represent District 8. He replaces Davis Callis of Seda­lia, Mo., whose term ended in March. Schad runs a diversified row-crop, hay and beef cattle operation and has been a patron and member of MFA for more than 45 years, first purchasing inputs for his high school FFA project in the early 1970s.

Re-elected to their positions on the MFA board were Don Schlesselman of Concordia, Mo., District 5, and Wayne Nichols of Pomona, Mo., District 13. Members of the corporate board are eligible to serve three-year terms and are limited to four consecutive terms.

In addition to elections, the February meetings in each of MFA’s 14 districts gave farmer-owners a chance to learn about the cooper­ative’s financial progress, hear from management and operating divi­sions and get updated on highlights from their respective regions.
