Inside Profitability: Diversifying Income Opportunities with Livestock

These days, it feels impossible to keep up with the ag industry. You look away for one second, and everything is different by the time you’re back in focus. Not so long ago, farming meant milking dairy cattle, raising hogs, running beef cattle, and keeping a chicken flock alongside the few acres you farmed. Today, most farmers specialize in producing one or two commodities. But don’t look now, the tide may be returning – there’s new value to be had incorporating livestock into your operation. In this edition of NEFB’s Inside Profitability, Kris Bousquet from the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (AFAN) joins us to discuss livestock expansion in the state and look at how diversification into livestock could benefit your operation.
