Glen Nelson of Clearwater County has been elected to the Canola Research and Promotion Council, District 4.
The council coordinates the ongoing development and promotion of farm commodities and the elections provide producers a voice in how their financial contributions to the organizations are spent.
Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Gene Hugoson says it's important for producers to participate in the elections so their voices are heard.
"These councils help to strengthen and expand market development for agricultural commodities," said Hugoson. "I would like to thank all those who took the time to vote as well as give my appreciation to the newly elected members for their commitment to the promotion of Minnesota agriculture."
