LINCOLN, NEB. – “The report released today by the University of Nebraska detailing the critical role agriculture plays to our state’s economy is an important and unbiased illustration of the need for Nebraskans to continue to work together to support our state’s largest single industry. Understanding the vast majority of Nebraskans will never sit behind the steering wheel of a combine during harvest or start their day feeding livestock, the findings in this report clearly show that many Nebraskans are still connected to agriculture through the jobs that are created as a direct result of production agriculture activities. The work of our farm and ranch families continue to serve as seeds that subsequently help sprout into jobs in the areas of food processing, ag-based manufacturing, biotechnology, and transportation. As we work together with business, community, and elected leaders to grow our state, this report is a powerful reminder that supporting our farms and ranches, and the families that operate them, is still a smart investment for Nebraska.”
