Nebraska salutes agriculture

LINCOLN – Monday, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts signed a proclamation to designate March 20-26, 2022 as “Agriculture Week” in Nebraska.  The Governor issued the proclamation at the State Capitol, where he was joined by leaders from Nebraska’s agriculture community.

“Nebraska agriculture powers our state’s growth and helps to feed the world,” said Gov. Ricketts.  “Each March, we set aside a week to thank our ag producers for their dedication to grow Nebraska.  Our strength as a state is rooted in the work ethic, resourcefulness, and generosity of our farm and ranch families.”

Durin a Monday morning press conference, Nebraska Farm Bureau President Mark McHargue talked about the numerous ways Nebraska’s growth in agriculture benefits the state’s communities.  Andy Jobman, President of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, noted the state’s record corn production in 2021.  He also emphasized the work of Nebraska’s farmers to steward land and water and to support American energy independence through their contributions to the state’s ethanol industry.  Ken Herz, past president of the Nebraska Cattlemen, highlighted the beef cattle community’s commitment to care for their animals and provide high-quality beef for consumers.
