More than 400 Farm Bureau members from across the state joined a live Telephone Town Hall this week hosted by the Nebraska Farm Bureau to gather information from members regarding the impacts of COVID-19 to their families and agricultural operations. Among the wide range of concerns identified during the call were commodity prices, manipulation in cattle markets, operation financing, potential ethanol and processing plant shutdowns, trucking issues, pesticide applicator renewals, broadband connectivity, rural healthcare, mental health, and general well-being of businesses in rural communities, in addition to numerous others. The feedback provided is being used to help in Farm Bureau’s COVID-19 response efforts.
