Our Producers Determine Our Priorities!
Next board meeting is Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 9:00 a.m., lunch at noon and District 2 election begins at 1:00 p.m.
In 1965, the Oklahoma Wheat Resources Act established the Oklahoma Wheat Commission, and with it a framework for Oklahoma wheat producers to invest in the promotion of their product, Hard Red Winter wheat.
The Oklahoma Wheat Commission is entirely producer-controlled. Oklahoma wheat producers elect their fellow producers to serve as commissioners in district elections. Each district has an opportunity to elect a commissioner every 5 years. Five Oklahoma wheat producers make up the board of commissioners.
The Oklahoma Wheat Commission promotes greater utilization of wheat in domestic and international markets through research, market development and public education.
Expert panel includes Dr. Brett Carver, Regents Professor and Wheat Genetics Chair in Agriculture from Oklahoma State University; Dr. Julie Miller-Jones, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist and Licensed Nutritionist and current Distinguished Scholar and Professor Emeritus of Nutrition at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN., and Sara Olsen, Colorado Wheat Farmer, Mother & Colorado Wheat Administrative Council board member moderated by well-known agriculture reporter Ken Root.
The Oklahoma Wheat Commission May board meeting will be held Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 9:00 a.m. along with the District 2 Election that will commence at 1:00 p.m. at the Best Western Hotel conference room located at 1102 NE 6th Street, Guymon, OK 73942.

"Humans have been growing and eating wheat for thousands of years, and the assertion that wheat's nutritional value has been changed is patently untrue. Eliminating wheat foods means eliminating an important source of healthful nutrients that are vital to our bodies functioning properly, like fiber, iron, B vitamins, antioxidants, and folic acid, which is especially important to women of childbearing age."
