Rob Jacobs, general manager of Farmers Cooperative Elevator headquartered in Ocheyedan, Iowa, is the newest member of the board for Ag Processing Inc., a cooperative known as AGP.
Jacobs was one of three directors to serve three-year terms at AGP's annual meeting held virtually Jan. 22. Two were re-elected: Bruce Granquist, a producer from LaBolt, South Dakota, and Larry Oltjen, a producer from Robinson, Kansas.
Lowell Wilson was elected board chairman. Wilson, a producer from Primghar, Iowa, has served on the board of directors since 1985 and held the position of vice chairman since 1995. Wilson succeeds Brad Davis of Goldfield, Iowa, who recently retired after 27 years on the AGP Board and over 46 years of experience in the cooperative system.
"I am very honored to have been elected to serve as Chairman of AGP,” Wilson said. “We have achieved great things at AGP and I believe we will continue our success in the years ahead.”
Other board officers elected include Dean Isaacson, retired general manager of Western-Consolidated Co-op in Holloway, Minnesota, who will serve as vice chairman. Chuck Schafer, general manager of North Iowa Cooperative Elevator in Thornton, Iowa, was elected secretary-treasurer.
