Calcot's Chairman of the Board
Chairman of the Board
Gregory C. Wuertz
Gregory C. Wuertz was elected to the post of Chairman of the Board in September, 2014, having previously served two separate terms as Vice Chairman. He has served on the Calcot Ltd. Board since 1986, representing the growers of River Cooperative Gin of Coolidge, Ariz.

Wuertz succeeded F. Ronald Rayner of Litchfield Park, Ariz., and is the eleventh chairman in the cooperative’s 89-year history.

Born in Tucson, Ariz., in 1958, Wuertz was active in Future Farmers of America (FFA) and sports, and was FFA chapter president at Coolidge High School. He won a State Star Farmer Degree his senior year, before heading to the University of Arizona.

Wuertz graduated from Arizon in 1981 with a degree in Agronomy and Plant Genetics, and minored in business.

He met wife Loralee at the University of Arizona, and they are the parents of four children.

Wuertz began farming in partnership with his father, Howard Wuertz in 1981 at Fast Farms in the Coolidge and Casa Grande area, about midway between Phoenix and Tucson. (“Fast” was coined from FA-ther-Son-Team.)

Wuertz's other leadership positions include serving on the Casa Grande Elementary School Board for four years, is a past president of Arizona Grain, Arizona Grain Council, Arizona Cotton Research and Protection Council, Arizona Cotton Growers and River Co-op Gin.

Currently, he is not only Calcot chair, but also Chairman of Arizona Cotton Growers, a delegate to the American Cotton Producers of the National Cotton Council and is a member of the NCC Pink Bollworm Action Committee. He is also an elder at Community Presbyterian Church.

The Wuertz family farms together in partnership with father, brother and sisters, and leases 2,500 acres, producing alfalfa, Durum wheat, and both Upland and Pima cotton.

Calcot, Ltd., is a cotton marketing cooperative serving the merchandising needs of close to a thousand California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas cotton growers.
