Erwin recipient of Nebraska Corn Board Elevator Appreciation Award
The Nebraska Corn Board recognized Rich Erwin with its annual Elevator Appreciation Award. Erwin is the owner and operator of Laurel Feed and Grain of Laurel, Neb.
"Rich Erwin is an active Nebraska elevator manager who exhibits an excellent understanding of the value of the Nebraska corn checkoff and willingly assists in promoting this value with his customers," said Bob Dickey, NCB board member who nominated Erwin.
In addition to responsibilities as an elevator manager, Erwin is also active in the community and has served as the past chairman of the Laurel-Concord school board and currently serves as the president of the Cedar-Knox Public Power District.
The Elevator Appreciation Award is presented annually to a grain elevator manager or personnel who are supportive of the mission of the Nebraska corn checkoff and help communicate the value of checkoff investments that are being made.
The Nebraska Corn Board is a self-help program, funded and managed by Nebraska corn farmers. Producers invest in the program at a rate of 1/4 of a cent per bushel of corn sold. Nebraska corn checkoff funds are invested in programs of market development, research and education.
