LINCOLN, NEB. – “We offer our congratulations to Dr. Jeffrey Gold on his appointment as president of the University of Nebraska system. Considering that agriculture serves as the primary economic force in our state, supporting a quarter of all jobs in Nebraska, and given that Nebraska’s agricultural complex ranks as the third largest in the nation, it is crucial that the individual leading our land grant institution is fully dedicated to making Nebraska ‘the’ top agriculture research and extension institution. We look forward to working with Dr. Gold to ensure the advancement of Nebraska’s prominence as a global front-runner in the production of food, fiber, and energy.”
