Abstract: Any distributive lattice admits a semiring structure in a natural way and this particular semiring satisfies some new distributive properties. The purpose of this note is to study whether a semiring with some or all of these new distributive properties admits the natural distributive lattice structure, and thus obtain Birkhoff's theorem as a corollary. Furthermore, characterizations of semirings satisfying some or all of these new distributive properties are obtained.
