Michael elected as new MFA director for District 2

The MFA Incorporated Board of Directors has a new member and three re­turning members after district meetings and elections were held in March.

Tanner Michael of Unionville, Mo., was elected to represent District 2. Michael raises 1,200 acres of row crops and 100 head of feeder calves on his family farm. He replaces outgoing director Tom Dent of Humeston, Iowa, whose term ended in March.

“MFA has such a rich history, going back more than 100 years now, and I want to be part of that,” Michael said during the March 14 district meeting where the election was held. “There’s a lot of uncertainty in the ag industry, but I think MFA is on the right track and its future looks bright. I didn’t run for the board with any agenda. I just want to help continue MFA’s success.”

Re-elected to their positions on the MFA board were Jim Novinger of Kirksville, Mo., District 3; Steve Stumpe of Leslie, Mo., District 10; and Doyle Oehl of Jackson, Mo., District 14. Members of the corporate board are eligible to serve three-year terms and are limited to four consecutive terms.

In addition to elections, the 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. 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.
