Entry Description

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.

“Norman McCowan has demonstrated vision in fish production, processing, research, economic development and the use of soybeans as a sustainable feed ingredient that is helping Indiana to be recognized domestically and internationally,” wrote Indiana Soybean Alliance Chief Executive Officer Jane Ade Stevens.

Aquaculture is a rapidly-growing component of agriculture that involves the farming of fish and other “seafood” under controlled conditions, often as part of broader, more traditional, farm operations.

The award was presented Wednesday morning during the Lt. Governor’s Celebration of Agriculture event, held at The Normandy Barn on the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
