Meet Nebraska Corn Board Director, Alan Tiemann

Alan Tiemann has been serving as the at-large director for the Nebraska Corn Board since 2005 and just served three years as chairman of the board.

Alan, and his wife Lori, became the second generation to return to production agriculture when he began farming with his parents in 1978. Alan is fortunate to have their son, Dan, and his wife Casey, return to the farm making it three active generations of Tiemann's farming together.

Their operation is a row crop farm raising corn and soybeans. Alan began his career in public service to agriculture serving on the Seward Farmers Cooperative and Ruby Farmers Cooperative Board of Directors from 1986 to 1994. He has also served on the Nebraska Grain Sorghum Board, serving as president from 2001 and 2002. Tiemann also represented the Board on the U.S. Grains Council Executive Committee.

In 2003, he began his current tenure on the Nebraska Corn Board. Alan was elected by his peers to serve an unprecedented three terms as Chairman of the Board. Alan again returned to activity on the U.S. Grains Council’s action teams, and was elected to serve on the Board of Directors from 2006 to 2012. In addition to their son Dan, Alan and Lori also have a son, Brian, who is employed as an architect in Chicago.

 In 2001, Alan and his family were awarded the Outstanding Farm Family from the Seward Kiwanis. This year, Alan was awarded with the Public Service to Agriculture award by the Nebraska Agribusiness Club.
