The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) has announced the election of Jed Bower, a seasoned farmer from Washington Court House, Ohio, as the organization's next first vice president.

His term will commence on October 1, 2024, marking a significant milestone in his career within agricultural leadership.

“It is an honor to be elected to this role by my fellow board members,” Bower expressed. He is set to embrace his new responsibilities with a strategic vision, at a time when the NCGA has laid out a fresh strategic plan.

“With a new strategic plan in place, this is an exciting time to serve in a leadership role on the board. I look forward to working with my fellow board members, in partnership with grower leaders and staff from across our national and state partner organizations, to lead NCGA toward a future that I am confident will best serve U.S. corn growers,” he added.

Jed Bower operates a fifth-generation family farm in Ohio alongside his wife, Emily, and their children, Ethan and Emma.

The family farm primarily produces corn and soybeans, reflecting the deep agricultural roots and commitment to farming that Bower brings to his new role at NCGA.

In addition to his farming duties, Bower has been an active member of the NCGA board. He serves as the board liaison to the organization’s Stewardship Action Team and contributes to several key committees including Field to Market and the National Coalition for Food and Agriculture Research.

His involvement extends to the Governance Committee, showcasing his broad engagement in shaping agricultural policies and practices.

Bower’s election comes at a pivotal time for the NCGA as it seeks to implement its new strategic initiatives aimed at enhancing support and growth for U.S. corn growers.

His leadership is expected to play a crucial role in steering the association through upcoming challenges and opportunities in the agricultural sector.
