Agricultural Business Council to Honor Three Agribusiness Leaders

April 17, 2014, KANSAS CITY, MO:  On June 2 at the Chamber of Commerce Board Room in historic Union Station, the Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City will honor three of the region’s leading business figures who have been civic champions for agriculture in separate but very key issue areas in our region. 

“These individuals have had a positive and lasting effect on our community. They are strong examples of what being an advocate for agriculture can accomplish,” says Mike Johanning, Chairman of the Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City.

The 2014 Award for Agricultural Leadership and Excellence, named in honor of the late Jay B. Dillingham, will be awarded to Barry Flinchbaugh, Professor Emeritus at Kansas State University, Bill Jackson, general manager, AGRIServices of Brunswick, and Jere White, recently retired as CEO of the Kansas Corn Commission.

This alliance includes more than 250 individuals, businesses and organizations associated with the extensive agricultural and food industry.


The Council has proved to be a success as a networking opportunity and a forum to hear from government officials and industry executives.  The Council also seeks to be an advocate for agriculture and agricultural economic growth in this region.
