In testimony before the Agriculture Committee on January 16, 2018, the Nebraska Agri-Business Association extended support for Mr. Steve Wellman for the position of Director for the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
Mr. Wellman with his background and experience will be an asset to the Department and Nebraska’s agriculture community. Being a lifelong farmer on a fourth generation family farm from Syracuse he has a strong working understanding of production agriculture.
His production background along with his service on local, state and national groups also enables him to have a national and world view and knowledge of our industry. His past leadership role as president of American Soybean Association and serving on several national agricultural advisory groups will bring a global perspective to the Department.
