By Staff | Jun 22, 2012

Todd Lasher of McClusky was recently appointed by the Governor to his first three-year term on the North Dakota Oilseed Council Board. Lasher will also serve on the National Sunflower Association Board of Directors.

District V included the counties of Towner, Foster, Benson, Sheridan, Pierce, Wells, Rolette and Eddy. Elected as sunflower county representatives in these counties are: Brock Mitchell, Rock Lake (Towner); Mike Senger, Rugby (Pierce); Kelly Nitz, Harvey (Wells). Elections in the counties of Foster, Benson, Sheridan, Rolette and Eddy, as well as the District V election, did not take place due to lack of participation.

Lasher manages the family farm in Sheridan County in central North Dakota, with his wife Vicky, three daughters and father. He attended Minot State University and North Dakota State University. Lasher began his career as a 4th generation farmer in 1982. They have a diversified operation with beef cattle, small grains and row crops, raising hard spring wheat, oats, corn, millet, peas, durum, malting barley, canola, sunflower and flax on the family farm. Todd also owns and operates a trucking company, and credits his wife, three daughters and father for running the farming operation while he’s away. He enjoys sports activities, boating and camping with his family.

As a National Sunflower Association Board member, Lasher is involved in providing direction and setting policies for numerous NSA programs in market development, promotion and research. The NSA conducts programs in over 20 countries around the world for both confection sunflower and sunflower oil.
