PRINCETON, Ky. — In its January meeting, the Kentucky Soybean Association (KSA) board of directors elected a new slate of officers for the year. Allen Pace (pictured left, courtesy KSA) of Ballard County was chosen to serve as President. He is joined by Brent Gatton of Muhlenberg County as Vice- President, Adam Hendricks of Logan County as Secretary, and Jonathan Reynolds of Hickman County as Treasurer.
The Kentucky Soybean Association is a membership-based organization that focuses on policy efforts at both the state and national levels. KSA’s farmer-leaders travel to Frankfort and host legislators on their farms to promote open dialogue about issues that affect those in the agriculture sector. Those same farmer-leaders have also developed
relationships with our lawmakers in Washington, D.C. and (under normal circumstances) travel to the Capitol each year to visit our Senators, Congressmen and their staff members to talk about direct and unintended consequences of legislation and to lobby for the best interests of Kentucky’s soybean farmers.
The association’s directors are elected to represent the farmers in their respective areas of the state by the farmer-members in those areas. For 2021, KSA’s directors are as follows.
Purchase Area: Andrea Williford, Jonathan Reynolds, Dan Pirtle, and Allen Pace.
Pennyrile Area: Craig Roberts, Scott Bridges, and Brent Gatton
Green River Area: Jason Strode, Clay Wells, and Jonathan Miller
Mammoth Cave Area: Adam Hendricks, Andy Alford, and Shane Wells
Lincoln Trail Area: Quint Pottinger, Anna Reding, Caleb Ragland, and (newly elected)
Central Bluegrass Area: Ben Furnish, Brennan Gilkison, Spencer Sims, and (newly elected) Jeremy Tucker
Directors At-Large include Jeremy Stull, Neal Milliken, and Mark Wilson.
