Siemer Milling Gives 1 Million to UK Grain and Forage Center

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Siemer Milling Company is making a gift of $1 million to the University of Kentucky Grain and Forage Center of Excellence to support initiatives to improve grain quality and agronomic productivity of wheat in Kentucky and the region.

The gift will be given in five annual installments of $200,000 to support the Siemer Milling Company Wheat Production Program Fund. The fund will be used for programming, equipment, outreach, and faculty and student support. The conference center at the soon-to-be completed Grain and Forage Center will be named the Siemer Milling Company Conference Center.

Siemer Milling opened a flour mill in Western Kentucky 23 years ago to be closer to its largest customer and discovered that wheat growers in the region were among the most sophisticated in the business, said Rick Siemer, president.
