Podcast: Approval of LB 1057 (corn checkoff bill) is good for corn growers, Nebraska

In this podcast, Carl Sousek, a farmer from Prague and president of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, said the passage of LB 1057, which will allow an increase in the Nebraska corn checkoff, is good news.

The bill allows an increase in the corn checkoff rate from a quarter-cent to a half-cent per bushel beginning October 1 of this year. "We appreciate the work of the legislature on this bill and thank everyone who supported its passage," he said.

Sousek also discussed areas the checkoff will be better able to support and that the increase is "good for corn growers and good for Nebraska."
