Quoting from the August 14, 2013, news release:
“Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann Wednesday presented the Indiana Agrivision Award to Jay County businessman Norman McCowan. The award recognizes a member of the Indiana agriculture family for demonstration, vision, innovation and leadership in their field.
‘It is my privilege to recognize Norman McCowan with this honor,’ Ellspermann said. ‘The vision, team‐building and sense of service he has consistently shown is an asset to his business, his specific industry, the state and national agricultural sectors and his community. The efforts of citizens like Norman are what makes Hoosier agriculture such a great success story.’
McCowan, Redkey, IN, is president of Bell Aquaculture, a leading producer of farm‐raised fish that employs approximately 50 people. Nominations for him came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Indiana Soybean Alliance, among others.”
