A North Dakota farmer has taken the reins of the National Corn Growers Association.

Arthur farmer Kevin Skunes began serving as the group's president on Sunday. He'll hold the position for a year.

Skunes says top priorities over the coming year include trade agreements and the 2018 farm bill.

Skunes and his family raise corn and soybeans in Cass County. He also serves as a board member of the North Dakota Corn Growers Association.

Skunes is the third North Dakota farmer to lead the national corn group. Bart Schott of Kulm and Wallie Hardie of Fairmount previously served in the role.
