The Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation is celebrating 100 years of representing the state’s farmers and ranchers. President Steve Nelson says in honor of 100 years of service they have a number of events planned.
Nelson says, “We are really excited to have the opportunity to celebrate our 100th year. The organization formed to serve farmers and ranchers to advocate for policies that make life better for farming and ranching. As we move forward it is really about making life better for all Nebraskans and about how we produce food for not only ourselves but for our state, nation and world.”
The celebration started earlier this month when Governor Pete Ricketts issued a proclamation to recognize Nebraska Farm Bureau’s 100 years. A bronze sculpture will be unveiled in the shape of Nebraska that includes landscapes and crops across the state on March 30th.
Nelson says they also have a number of other events planned across the state as part of their centennial year.
