LINCOLN — The Nebraska Farm Bureau will host a series of regional listening sessions across the state in June.
Two more sessions will happen in August. The sessions are open to the public and will provide farmers and ranchers with the opportunity to share their thoughts on issues impacting their operations.
“I hope people will take advantage of the opportunity to come to one of our listening sessions and share their thoughts. The input we received during these meetings last summer was extremely valuable,” Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau president, said in a press release. “Nebraska Farm Bureau was founded by farmers and ranchers who understood the importance of working together to solve problems and these sessions are another way in which we can work together today to identify and address issues impacting our farm and ranch families and our rural communities.”
All listening sessions will begin with a social at 6 p.m. local time, to be followed by a meal and program.
Those interested can RSVP by texting “LISTENING SESSIONS” to 52886 or online at nefb.org/listeningsessions. RSVPs are appreciated, but walk-ins are welcome.
According to a press release, the Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, statewide 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, according to a press release.
