Agriculture Disaster Exchange
When natural disasters hit, there are always people in need. We also know there are always people looking to help.
That’s why Nebraska Farm Bureau developed the Agriculture Disaster Exchange (ADE). Like a “want ad” page, the ADE provides a place for Farm Bureau members to seek and offer help, as well as share information during tough times.
- Have extra hay to sell or donate to help a producer recover from the blizzard? Post it.
- Looking for extra help or equipment to help in disaster recovery? Post it.
- Want Nebraska Farm Bureau to know how recovery is going or problems you’re experiencing? Post it.
These are a just a few examples of how Farm Bureau members can use the ADE as a clearinghouse to share information. It’s the responsibility of portal users to contact each other to negotiate interactions or transactions.
