A-FAN brings new face to agriculture

Nebraska farmers and ranchers have always been a trustworthy, hard-working and compassionate breed. They now enjoy more tools to help them do what's right. According to large animal veterinarians, advancements in technology and medicine are resulting in a higher level of animal care. As a result, the food we feed our families is safer and healthier than ever before.

A-FAN, the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska, has a great new video and TV commercial with such a veterinarian and great advocate for agriculture: Dr. Angela Baysinger.

Dr. Baysinger is a licensed large animal vet from Bruning, Nebraska. She's also a rancher and a mom.

Click to watch the video below to hear why she believes Nebraskans can be trusted to do the right thing when it comes to caring for animals. Dr. Baysinger discusses the advantages of modern science and technology, and a time when animals were far more vulnerable to disease, predators and the elements.

The new video coincides with an updated A-FAN website, which you can find at

“We believe it’s extremely important in this day and age that Nebraskans and others around the country have a true picture of how their food is produced and a chance to get to know the people that are producing it for them. This site will give people a chance to hear directly from Nebraska farmers/ranchers who work every day to provide the food and fiber that keeps Nebraska and America going,” said Willow Holoubek, A-FAN Organizational Director.
