Statement by Steve Nelson, President, Regarding Sen. Fischer Appointment to Chair of Livestock, Marketing, and Agriculture Security Subcommittee

LINCOLN, NEB. – “Congratulations to Sen. Deb Fischer on her selection as Chair of the Livestock, Marketing, and Agriculture Security Subcommittee. As a rancher, Sen. Fischer brings a tremendous level of livestock agriculture expertise to the committee and has a proven track record of working with agriculture producers. One of her first actions as a Nebraska state lawmaker was to protect private information shared by Nebraska livestock producers as part of a national animal identification system. She represented the needs and interests of Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers with that successful legislation and has been doing so ever since. We look forward to continuing to work with her in her role as Chair of the Subcommittee, and as a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.”

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service and advocacy efforts. More than 61,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
