Andy Jobman, farmer from Gothenburg, is the new president of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association. He began his term Jan. 21, 2021.

On Jan. 21, 2021, Andy Jobman, a farmer from Gothenburg, was elected as president of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) following the organization’s annual meeting. The Nebraska Corn Board (NCB) congratulates Jobman on his new role, and Nebraska’s corn checkoff looks forward to working with Jobman and NeCGA for the betterment of the agricultural industry.

“Andy has been great to work with since he joined NeCGA in 2010,” said David Bruntz, chairman of NCB and farmer from Friend. “Throughout my time working with Andy, I’ve appreciated his level of engagement in various local, state and national meetings. He is always prepared and ready to tackle tough issues impacting our nation’s corn industry. He’s a great active listener and takes time to hear all viewpoints. He’ll definitely be an asset to the association throughout his term.”

Jobman will serve as president for two years before a new leader is elected, and he will then transition to chairman of the board.

NCB also thanks Dan Nerud, farmer from Dorchester, who completed his term as president of NeCGA, a position he’s held since Dec. 2018. He now serves as chairman of the board.

“It’s always exciting to welcome in new leadership, but it’s also bittersweet because we see great leaders conclude their service,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, executive director of NCB. “Working with Dan has been a pleasure over these last two years and the Nebraska Corn Board greatly appreciates his commitment to the industry. Fortunately, while he may be finishing his time as president, I know Dan will continue to be very involved in the corn industry at the local and national levels, and I know we’ll be seeking his expertise from time to time.”

Brunkhorst, who also serves as the executive director of NeCGA, encourages interested farmers to get involved with Nebraska’s corn industry by serving the checkoff or the association. To learn more about NCB and NeCGA, visit
