Tim Burrack has been farming in Northeast Iowa for almost 40 years raising corn, seed corn and soybeans. Pork production is also a major part of his family farm. Tim volunteers as a board member for the Global Farmer Network and provides leadership as the Vice-Chairman. He is an active participant in state and national farm and commodity organizations including the US Grain Council, National Corn Growers Association and AgState, an agricultural think tank based in Iowa that was organized to create leadership for Iowa agriculture through strategic visioning, planning and implementation. Tim’s interest in infrastructure as it relates to trade has led to travel in Panama, Brazil and down the Mississippi River to research river, rail and road infrastructure challenges.
