Nebraska Agriculture Department Is Pushing Livestock Development

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture is promoting livestock development in the state as a way to improve the economy.  Assistant Ag Director Bobbie Kriz-Wickham says the foundation of the program is livestock friendly county designations.

She says they already have a couple dozen counties that have acquired the designation.

She says these counties realize that livestock production is a way to add value to their base commodities.  Nebraska’s livestock industry contributes $6 billion annually to the state economy.
