JB Stewart, Cimarron County, Okla., AFR member, has been selected to serve on the USDA’s Farm Service Agency state committee.
“This is a great honor for JB and he will serve Oklahoma and agriculture with distinction,” Terry Detrick, AFR president said.
Stewart and his family grow wheat and grain sorghum on their farm near Keyes in the Oklahoma Panhandle. He still owns and farms the 160 acres homesteaded by his great-grandfather. Today their farming business extends across Cimarron and Texas Counties.
JB and his son, Jarrod, are active AFR members and Jarrod owns the AFR Insurance agency in Boise City.
They also own Hopkins Ag Supply, LLC, an agri-business that sells fertilizers, agricultural chemicals, seed, and general farm supplies, while also providing custom chemical application and custom farming.
The Panhandle farm leader served on the Cimarron County FSA Committee for nine years, and was elected to the local school board for three terms. He served as a board member and is past president of the Oklahoma Crop Improvement Association and is a past chairman of the Oklahoma Sorghum Commission.
He is currently vice president of Oklahoma Genetics, Inc. and is serving the last year of his third term on the National Sorghum Producers (NSP) board of directors and was previously Chairman of the NSP Board for two years.
Stewart is a graduate of Oklahoma Panhandle State University with a BS degree in Chemistry and Animal Science.
