Published Friday, January 02, 2015


Al-Corn Clean Fuel, a farmer-owned ethanol production cooperative based in Claremont, Minn., has become a Minnesota Agriculture and Rural Leadership (MARL) funding partner.

“We’re pleased with the support that Al-Corn Clean Fuel has shown to the MARL program,” said Bill Mulso, Vice President for Advancement at Southwest Minnesota State University. “Their investment in agricultural leadership will be felt across the state in the years to come.”

“The role played by leadership development programs such as MARL is not only invaluable to the agriculture and agribusiness sectors but to our local communities, as well” said Rod Jorgenson, Chairman of the Board for Al-Corn Clean Fuel. “Adding value to our local communities goes far beyond the monetary value we add to our corn crop. It extends to our future leaders, as well.”

The MARL program is a leadership development program for agricultural and rural leaders in Minnesota. Every two years, a class of 30 participants is selected, which includes those engaged in production agriculture, along with business, civic, government and organizational leaders in agriculture across the state.

The program is delivered by Southwest Minnesota State University, in cooperation with the University of Minnesota Extension Service.
