Kearney Chamber Resolution Supports Animal Agriculture

Kearney Chamber Resolution Supports Animal Agriculture

Group would oppose outside organizations that seek to eliminate livestock food production.

Earlier this spring, the Hastings Chamber of Commerce voted to oppose any possible future activities of the Humane Society of the United States that would be detrimental to the state's agricultural economy, especially animal agriculture.

That action may be sparking other communities to come out in support of animal agriculture.

For example, the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce also voted recently to support animal agriculture. According to news report, the chamber's resolution pledges to oppose outside organizations that would work to eliminate livestock for food production.

The resolution, unanimously passed by the chamber board, recognizes the importance of Nebraska's agriculture heritage and supports current livestock production practices and animal husbandry.

According to news reports, Greg Ibach, director of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, appreciates the action by the Kearney Chamber of Commerce. "Livestock production, and the agriculture industry as a whole, is a cornerstone for the Nebraska economy," he says. "I hope other organizations and communities will consider similar actions."

The chamber was considering sending its resolution to officials of other chambers in the state.
