Annual Meeting Pays Tribute to Lyle Hovland

In the past year, Golden Growers lost a great friend in Lyle Hovland. “It would be hard to find a more dedicated member of our Golden Growers family,” said Chairman Brett Johnson. Johnson explained that Lyle was at the first meeting of Northern Corn Processors, the predecessor to Golden Growers, on July 27th of 1993. Lyle then became an elected member of the Golden Growers board in May of 1995.

Lyle dedicated 15 years of service to our cooperative and he rarely missed an annul meeting or social event. “Lyle’s heart was always on the farm near Rothsay, MN where he raised dairy, corn and beans. Lyle’s good nature and wise advice will be missed. We offer our deepest sympathy to Lyle’s wife Darlene and the entire Hovland family,” said Johnson.
