Fri, 14 Jun 2013 03:06:50 CDT

Michael Peters of Okarche is Newest Member of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed Canadian County farmer Michael Peters to a five-year term on the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Board. Peters, a wheat producer from Okarche, will represent District III, which includes Beckham, Blaine, Canadian, Custer, Dewey, Kingfisher, Roger Mills and Washita counties.

"We are excited that Michael Peters has been appointed to the Oklahoma Wheat Commission board," said Mike Schulte, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission. "His knowledge and experience with wheat production as a farmer and his previous roles with the Mid-Oklahoma Coop Board of Directors and Plains Partners Coop Board, a division of CHS has given him a skillset that will be helpful on future endeavors and actions in the wheat industry, which is what Oklahoma needs in this position."

Peters responsibilities as a member of the commission include working with the other members to develop and oversee the implementation of policy and programs, approve budget expenditures, direct the funding of research, market development and public education, represent district producer interests, and promote Oklahoma wheat.

Peters is active at St. John's Lutheran Church in Okarche, is a member of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau and serves on the Okarche Rural Fire Association Board of Directors.

"Michael has been instrumental in owning and managing a successful full time farming operation that is made up of wheat and cattle production. It will be beneficial to have his knowledge on state and national levels when making funding decisions on wheat research and marketing efforts that in turn will help Oklahoma wheat producers." Schulte said. He and his wife, Linda, currently run the Peters Family Farm along with his parents Freddie and Jeannie.

He joins current commission members David Gammill, Chattanooga; Don Schieber, Ponca City; Kenneth Failes, Cherokee and Tom Stephens from Guymon. District III has most recently been represented by Tom Glazier of Loyal.

The Oklahoma Wheat Commission promotes greater utilization of wheat in both domestic and international markets through research, market development and public education.
