In his position as Manager, Ozark Region for Dairy Farmers of

thought and concern into every decision.
He solves problems and challenges with a common sense
approach. In his own words, Steve’s philosophy is straightforward,
clear and powerful, “Every morning when I get up, I come to work to
market members’ milk.”
Noted for his remarkable ability to find ways to cut costs,
Steve contributes to member and cooperative profit. He coordinates

help DFA members market their products in the most efficient manner
and to maximize member returns. He collaborates with DFA directors,
council representatives and district leaders to insure member’s
needs are cared for.
Tireless in pursuit of opportunities for individual and
cooperative success, Steve strongly believes in the cooperative
enterprise and strives to serve all members regardless of
