Film crew coming to Seward

America's Heartland, a television program that focuses on America’s farmers and ranchers and how they bring food, fuel and fiber to the world, will be in Seward later this week. The Nebraska Corn Board said in a news release today that the film crew will complete interviews and record footage for an episode of America’s Heartland that will air this winter.

The crew will spend time on the Alan and Lori Tiemann farm near Seward and also at Lori’s off-farm job at a local bank. Alan is a member of the Nebraska Corn Board.

Earlier this summer, the Tiemann’s took a trip to Taiwan and China to film other segments that will be part of the episode, which Alan said focuses on foreign markets for corn, distillers grains and PLA, the corn-based material made in Blair that is used in everything from plastic ware to clothing. “Since all of these items come from Nebraska, the show’s producers decided to work with a farm family here," Alan said.

The photo above was taken "on location" at a research dairy farm in China.
