Meet Trent Kubik, SDCGA Secretary/Treasurer

Trent Kubik started a farm and ranch in 2013 with his wife Shannon and his two brothers Troy and Bruce Vanderwerff. The family business has continued down the generations as a corn, soybean, milo, alfalfa, and cow-calf operation.

“We just crossed the century mark about a decade ago raising cattle and growing crops,” said Trent.

Trent also represents District 9 on the South Dakota Corn Growers Association board. Focusing on policy, Trent says they work directly with state representatives locally in the state legislature as well as U.S. senators and representatives in Washington, D.C. to ensure policy doesn’t affect farmers’ right to farm.

“It’s ensuring that there are the tools available from a policy side that will help farmers as well as not having too much policy and regulation to really harm the way farmers operate. Our primary focus is outreach,” said Trent. “We’re a member based organization, so farmers in South Dakota pay membership dues and that is where our revenue comes from to work on these issues.”
