LINCOLN — Many things have changed over the past decade, but at least one thing remains unchanged — the importance of agriculture in Nebraska.
We live in a state where agriculture is our number one industry.
We know that it takes more than farmers and ranchers to make our food possible. One in four jobs are related to agriculture.

LINCOLN – For many Nebraskans, COVID-19 will be like a cold. But for some of our parents and grandparents, it could be very severe, and could result in death. Recent data shows that the virus is also affecting younger people.
A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report said 20% of those hospitalized for COVID-19 in the U.S. were 20-44 years old. Even if you are healthy, you can pass COVID-19 on to others who can be severely affected. Help protect those you love by avoiding crowds, distancing yourself from other people and isolating yourself even if you think you just have the “sniffles.” We all have a responsibility to protect our loved ones, and others’ loved ones.
