Welcome to the Western Nebraska Agri-Women’s blog!
We are a group of women of diverse backgrounds and occupations. What do we have in common? A passion for agriculture that we want to share with you.
Ever wondered what is going on in the field next to your house? Curious about that huge tractor you passed on the highway? Do you want to know where sugar comes from, or what it took to produce that juicy steak on the grill?
We are blessed to have a very diverse agriculture here in Western Nebraska. In our dry climate, pasture supports cattle production, while tillable acres can be used to grow dryland crops like wheat, sorghum, or millet. Water from the North Platte and other sources allows farmers to grow corn, dry beans, sugarbeet and alfalfa. There is always something to discover about agriculture in Western Nebraska.
Join us as we share our love stories with agriculture. We hope this blog can shed light on what agriculture in Western Nebraska may mean for you as a consumer, resident of the region, or even constituent.
