David Gammill Reappointed to Oklahoma Wheat CommissionWed, 15 May 2019 05:21:44 CDT
Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture, Blayne Arthur, has re-appointed David Gammill to a five-year term on the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Board. Gammill, a wheat producer from Chattanooga, will represent District IV, which includes Caddo, Comanche, Cotton, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Kiowa and Tillman counties.
Gammill was the top vote getter at the Wheat Commission District Election held last week in Cotton County- his name and two others were submitted to Secretary Arthur to be considered for the five year term as a member of the Commission.
“We are excited that David Gammill has been re-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 active roles held with the OWC Board and U.S. Wheat Associates Board continue to make him a valuable leader for the wheat industry on both state and national levels.”
Gammill’s 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. David and his wife Debbie currently farm approximately 1700 acres with 1000 acres of that in wheat production. Gammill has served on the Walters Coop Elevator Board and is a member of the Cotton County Farm Bureau. He is a Deacon and member of the Ahpeatone Baptist Church. David has also served on the Oklahoma Wheat Growers Association Board and currently serves on the US Wheat Board of Directors. Gammill was a member of Class One of the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program.
He will continue his service with current commission members, Don Schieber, Ponca City; Kenneth Failes, Cherokee; Tom Stephens, Guymon and Michael Peters, Okarche. The Oklahoma Wheat Commission promotes greater utilization of wheat in both domestic and international markets through research, market development and public education.
