Jackson County Farm Bureau Member Matt Muller Named to State Water Board by Gov. Mary Fallin

Wed, 16 May 2018 13:10:06 CDT

Jackson County Farm Bureau Member Matt Muller Named to State Water Board by Gov. Mary Fallin Matt Muller, a Jackson County Farm Bureau member, has been chosen by Gov. Mary Fallin to serve a seven-year term on the Oklahoma Water Resources Board.


Representing all geographic areas of the state and diverse groups of water users, the OWRB board of directors define policy and conduct the state’s water business.


“A plentiful water supply is absolutely critical to the success of Oklahoma agriculture,” said Rodd Moesel, Oklahoma Farm Bureau president. “As a family farmer with direct experience in conserving and using water, Matt will serve the OWRB well as it decides how to best steward our state’s most important resource.”


A fourth-generation farmer, Muller grows cotton, wheat, grain sorghum, mungbeans and Bermuda grass hay on his family’s farm near Martha, Oklahoma. Farming in often drought-stricken western Oklahoma, Muller has relied largely on innovative water conservation methods.


Muller irrigates crops with water supplied by the Lugert-Altus Irrigation District and available wells. He has installed subsurface drip irrigation systems to conserve water resources, and he uses a rainwater collection system to further maximize efficient natural resource use.


The southwestern Oklahoma farmer serves on the Jackson County Farm Bureau board of directors and has been a delegate to AFBF annual meetings and contributed to numerous state Farm Bureau committees.


He and his wife, Kellie, served as the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers chairmen in 2003-2004, and received the 2006 American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Award, the only Oklahomans to ever win the award. The family was named OKFB’s 2015 Farm Family of the Year.


The Mullers’ four children, Taylor, Levi, Luke and Lincoln, also farm alongside the couple.
