Quoting from the August 15th posting by Meghan Grebner:
“Yesterday was Farmer’s Day at the Indiana State Fair. In recognition of his vision, innovation, and leadership, Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann presented Norman McCowan, president of Bell Aquaculture, the Indiana Agrivision Award.
McCowan says the honor is humbling. ‘We’re in a niche sector, aquaculture, which is now a growing industry in Indiana,’ he says. ‘To be recognized was unbelievable. I’m very excited, it’s very exciting.’
A recent Purdue Extension study showed that aquaculture is a growing contributor to Indiana’s agriculture economy. McCowan tells Brownfield he doesn’t see that slowing down any time soon.”
