Celebrate Nebraska Agriculture!
National Ag Week is happening March 22-28. Since agriculture is Nebraska’s number one industry, ag week is a good time to have a conversation about agriculture and recognize and thank the people behind the food, feed and fuel we depend on every day.
When agriculture does well, our state does well. Even after last year’s challenges with blizzards, flooding, low prices, etc., Nebraskans pulled together. The dedication, resourcefulness and resiliency of Nebraska ag producers helped keep the state’s ag industry strong. These top national rankings from the U.S. Depart ment of Agriculture show what a strong Nebraska ag industry looks like.
Nebraska is first in the nation in beef and veal exports (2018), first in Great Northern bean production (2018) and first in popcorn production (2017). We are second in the nation for: all cattle and calves (January 1, 2020); all cattle on feed (Jan. 1, 2020); commercial red meat production (2019); and ethanol production (January 2019).
