Alan Tiemann – 2019 Ag Achievement Award Recipient
“Alan has been a tremendous asset to our state’s corn industry,” said David Bruntz, farmer from Friend and chairman of the Nebraska Corn Board. “Alan was, and continues to be, very involved in shaping agriculture and building global demand for our ag products. He’s traveled the world meeting with potential customers through various trade missions, and he builds upon these relationships by inviting these international customers to his farm to demonstrate the quality and reliability of our agricultural sector.”
The Ethanol Industry Appreciation Award was presented to Siouxland Ethanol out of Jackson. The ethanol plant was recognized for their dedication to producing a quality, clean-burning renewable fuel, which builds corn demand while also supporting other industries, such as the livestock sector. Because Siouxland Ethanol was also hosting their annual meeting in South Sioux City on March 28, the award was accepted remotely by Pam Miller, chairwoman of the Siouxland Ethanol board.
“Siouxland Ethanol has been a major partner for Nebraska’s corn industry,” said Debbie Borg, farmer from Allen and District 4 Director of the Nebraska Corn Board. “Not only are they using 30 million bushels of corn each year to produce a clean-burning, renewable fuel, but they’re also producing 210,000 tons of distillers grains each year providing livestock farmers, like me, with quality feeds. They’re doing all of these great things, while improving the way of life in rural Nebraska.”
