Meet Your Board
Each month we will highlight one of the board members.  

Matt Hines has been a member of the board since 2015.  He currently serves as the Marketing Committee Chair and is also on the AFBF (American Farm Bureau Federation) Issue Advisory Market Structures Committee. Matt is a Licensed Commodity Broker and Consultant for Loewen and Associates, Inc. of Manhattan, KS.
Matt is married to Sara Fox and they have five children, ranging in ages 9 to 18. In his spare time, Matt enjoys coaching his kid's sports, golfing and overall enjoying the outdoors and family time.
While on the board he hopes to help educate producers on marketing and risk management and be able to help educate our youth about the importance of Agriculture.
The motto for Farm Bureau is the “Voice of Agriculture” and Matt feels he has seen this first-hand through the county, state and national level. All members have that opportunity for their voice to be heard covering all aspects in today’s agriculture. For those that are not members, he encourages them to join, so their voice may be heard as well.
Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas about agriculture with Matt if you see him around the county.

  • Awards grants to support ag education leadership programs.
  • Offers money-saving benefits both countywide and statewide.
