Class II of Nebraska Corn Growers Association’s PRIME Program Announced

The Nebraska Corn Growers Association is pleased to announce the next class of the PRIME Program. Over the course of this year, eight participants will come together for three seminars to learn and discuss new ideas to bring back to their own farms. The PRIME Program was founded in 2017 as a way for those newer or younger farmers who are not as interested in policy to be involved in the association.

Class II Participants include:
Sam Creal, Prauge
Derek Dam, Hooper
Chase Johnson, York
Jason Lewis, Henderson
Kerry McPheeters, Gothenburg
Schuyler Tomes, Waco
Sam Zach, Humphrey
Ethan Zoerb, Litchfield

“We are excited for this next group of young members to become more involved in the association and learn a few things along the way. Not only will they learn from the seminars presented, but perhaps even more importantly, they will learn from each other,” said Dan Wesely, President of NeCGA.

The PRIME Program is made possible with funding from our presenting partners, Northwestern Mutual and Farm Credit Services, along with the Nebraska Corn Board. For more information about the PRIME Program, please visit
