A second-generation Kansas Wheat Commissioner, Mike farms with his father, Bob, in Rooks County. He farms wheat, grain sorghum, soybeans and safflower in a no-till system that has evolved from wheat-fallow-wheat to planting a crop every year. Mike was a member of the KARL Class IV, serves on the board of directors of the First National Bank of Hays and the local school board, and he and his wife Tammy own two retail stores in Hays. They have four daughters. Mike can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
