Ag's economic impact - through the eyes of a senator from the city

Nebraska's economy is heavily dependent upon agriculture, which means there is an important interaction between rural and urban communities.

If agriculture is economically healthy, the state will be economically healthy, too, which is good for everyone.

The people in the video below, produced by the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (A-FAN), ties all of this together perfectly.

In it you'll see Brenda Council, a Nebraska state senator from district 11 (inner city Omaha), and Willow Holoubek, executive director of Butler County Development.
