Podcast: Nebraska is ideally suited for beef production

In this podcast, Mark Jagels, a member of the Nebraska Corn Board and a farmer from Davenport, noted that Nebraska-grown corn-fed beef is featured at the center of the plate here in Nebraska and in dozens of countries around the world.

He noted that Nebraska has the land, corn, distillers grains (feed produced by corn ethanol plants) and processing infrastructure necessary to be a global leader in beef production.

He also noted that five of the nine farmer-directors who make up the Corn Board also raise cattle. "We understand that working together to keep the cattle industry strong is one of the best ways to keep Nebraska strong, too," he said, adding that "it's to all our advantage to keep Nebraska beef at the center of the plate here at home and around the world."
