Nebraska getting more livestock friendly

A report on Brownfield cites Roger Berry, field director for the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (A-FAN), as saying that the climate for livestock production in Nebraska is getting friendlier. Especially compared to some other states.

That's great news, because the livestock and poultry industries drive Nebraska's economy, and we all benefit when those industries are successful and farmers have an opportunity to expand their own livestock operation - or add a new one.

"We have more and more counties who are now taking a look at their zoning regulations and saying you know maybe we gone a little bit too far on our separation distances on what we have or the minimum number that you can have before you have the conditional use permit," Berry told Brownfield.

FYI - Nebraska has 11 Livestock Friendly designated counties now.
