LINCOLN, NEB. – “Nebraska Farm Bureau is very pleased to see the nomination of Sonny Perdue move out of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Former Gov. Perdue has a long record of service to farmers and ranchers and we certainly hope his nomination will be taken up by the full senate and approved as soon as possible.”

 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.
