Cordell Kress Appointed to Idaho Wheat Commission 

Governor Brad Little appointed Cordell (Cory) Kress, Rockland, to serve a five-year term as a commissioner of the Idaho Wheat Commission.

Kress replaces Gerald (Jerry) Brown, Soda Springs, who has served growers for a decade as a commissioner. Cory and his
wife, Jamie, grow primarily wheat and safflower in the Rockland Valley in Power County where they have farmed since 2004. The commission welcomes Cory and extends appreciation to Jerry, who represented Idaho wheat growers on many overseas trade missions and goodwill visits to promote Idaho wheat.

Jerry also served on the Wheat Foods Council and several U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) committees and board during his tenure with the commission. Jerry was chosen to receive the Distinguished Service Award in 2017.
