Bruce Haines is a fourth-generation farmer from the Mitchell area. He and his wife, Marlene, have three children and seven grandchildren.
They raise corn, soybeans, and wheat on their no-till family farm. Bruce believes in giving back to his community which has given his family so much.
Bruce is involved in the SD Conservation Commission, South Dakota Nutrient Research and Education Council, Davison County Rural Water Board, Chairman of the Davison County Planning and Zoning Board, Davison County Conservation District, local Township board, and has held many other positions in his church. Bruce has 38 years of experience working outside the family farm business. His goals are to work together with soybean farmers to invest checkoff dollars to promote more marketing research and profit margin opportunities.
