The North Dakota Corn Utilization Council’s new leadership team for 2021 include Terry Wehlander, DeLamere, chairman; Jason Rayner, Finley, vice chairman; and Tysen Rosenau, Carrington, secretary-treasurer.

NDCUC oversees how North Dakota’s corn checkoff dollars are spent on research, education, and promotion of corn and corn products.

Wehlander and his uncle farm 3,000 acres of corn and soybeans. He farms an additional 1,600 acres with his cousin. He has been an NDCUC member since 2015.

“I am looking forward to continuing in the role of NDCUC chairman for the upcoming year and working to expand our market development programs for ethanol and livestock development in North Dakota,” he says.

Rayner and his family farm 5,000 acres of corn and soybeans. Rayner has been a council member since 2015.

“The industry has grown so much, even during my time on the council. I am excited about the chance to continue to promote and educate, especially when it comes to ethanol, and be a part of the positive impact it is making on our community and state,” Rayner says.

Rosenau and his father operate a 6,000-acre corn, soybean and wheat farm. Rosenau has been a council member since 2018.

“Being a part of the allocation of check-off funds to support market development, research, and education of corn and its uses allows me to be a better advocate for farmers statewide. I am honored to serve in this new leadership role for the Council,” he says.

NDCUC was created in 1991 and consists of seven members representing seven districts.
