Nebraska has a lot to celebrate!
Thanks to the hard work and innovative practices of our farmers and ranchers, Nebraska is one of the top-producing agriculture states in the country. We are grateful for their many contributions to our lives and economy, and their commitment to ensuring a strong future for all of us.
One in four Nebraska jobs is tied to agriculture. Our state ranks No. 1 in beef exports and the production of red meat, popcorn, and great northern beans, and is among the top states for cattle, corn and soybeans. Nebraska ranks No. 2 in the country for ethanol production at more than 2 billion gallons. This fuel source is a sought-after alternative for consumers and retailers. Because of producers' daily dedication, Nebraska is a leader in feeding the world.
We thank our farmers and ranchers for their continued hard work, for their vision in knowing how to feed the world, and for their care of the land. We are truly grateful for all they do
