Nebraska Corn Board works to promote the value of corn by creating opportunities.
The Nebraska Corn Board’s record of success includes strong support for the livestock industry, the number one customer for Nebraska corn and corn co-products; leadership in the development of the ethanol industry and the promotion of ethanol usage; identifying and growing export markets for Nebraska corn, both foreign and domestic; and research into new uses for corn, including the successful development of corn-based plastics and corn ethanol co-products like distillers grains.
The nine-member Nebraska Corn Board collects and disburses the funds generated by the 1/2 of a cent per bushel corn checkoff. A six-person staff administrates the various programs. Deciding where and how to invest corn checkoff dollars is a responsibility your Nebraska Corn Board takes very seriously.
The challenge is to manage each corn producer’s checkoff investment to capture the greatest value amidst the ever-changing industry, to continue nurturing the markets we’ve been able to establish, and invest in new possibilities and potential. It’s not an easy task, but the years have proven that the investment has paid dividends.
