Ryan Weeks is from the heart of South Central Nebraska. He and his wife Kristi operate Weeks Family Farms which raises Yellow Commercial Corn, White food grade corn, Popcorn, Soybeans, Alfalfa and Prairie Hay. Ryan is very involved at both the local and national levels as a voice for agriculture. His Social Media involvement in agvocacy began in 2009 with a promotion by the Nebraska Corn Board called “Follow a Farmer on Twitter”. That involvement led him to attending the first AgChat Conference in Chicago, IL. Since that time he has been involved in a support role with AgChat by serving on the Training Committee and working with logistics for the conferences. Ryan sees the role of our organization as fostering a community to communicate, educate, foster ideas, and share the story of our farms to preserve our right to do what we do for generations to come.
