Nebraska Farm Bureau is always there, representing the interests of Nebraska farmers and ranchers. The organization formed in 1917 on the idea that by working together, more could be accomplished. That is still the case today.
“Husker Harvest Days is a tremendous opportunity to connect with farmers and ranchers, hear what’s on their minds, and give them a chance to learn more about Nebraska Farm Bureau,” says NEFB President Mark McHargue.
He welcomes visitors to the Farm Bureau building during Husker Harvest Days.
NEFB’s vision is to achieve a great quality of life and prosperity for Nebraska farm and ranch families. When floods, blizzards and the COVID-19 pandemic hit, NEFB continued working to give farmers and ranchers a voice in both the Nebraska Legislature and Washington, D.C.
NEFB’s efforts at the state Capitol pushing for property tax relief means taxpayers will receive a tax credit equal to 24% of their property taxes paid to schools on their 2021 tax return, 3½ times the amount received this year.
The bureau also helped pass legislation to lower agricultural land valuation to 50% for the purposes of taxation for school bonds.
NEFB ensured that agriculture was considered an essential business, qualifying for state and federal financial assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. And the NEFB Foundation continues to ensure children, the state’s future leaders, are exposed to production agriculture.
“Through the pandemic, farming and ranching continued and so did Nebraska Farm Bureau’s efforts to support its members,” McHargue says.
Enter to win prizes
At the NEFB building, located at Lot 48 on Main Street, anyone can enter to win a Yamaha Wolverine side-by-side vehicle, a pellet grill from the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska, and tools from Grainger.
NEFB will also have free bottled water, snow cones and Wi-Fi. Farm Bureau members — current and those who sign up at HHD — will get a free pair of leather work gloves (while supplies last).
“Nebraska Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm and ranch organization, with members in all 93 Nebraska counties,” McHargue says. “We look forward to visiting with you at HHD or you can visit nefb.org to see how we are making a difference in the lives of farm and ranch families, and how you can help.”
