Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska

Who is A-FAN

The Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (A-FAN) is a non-profit organization formed by leading agricultural membership groups in Nebraska such as the Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska Corn Growers Association, Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation, Nebraska Pork Producers Association, Nebraska Poultry Industries, and Nebraska Soybean Association. These groups understand that livestock production is a critical component to Nebraska's future providing vitality and opportunity for rural communities, adding value to Nebraska's agricultural output and energizing the economy of the entire state.

Nebraska Farmers

With the support of other membership groups, commodity organizations, and private business, A-FAN works with individual producers and communities across Nebraska to encourage the development of environmentally responsible and economically viable livestock production in the state.


To ensure the continued viability and opportunity for growth of Nebraska agriculture into the future through coordinated outreach, promotional and informational efforts.


To assist farmers seeking to make responsible changes to their farms to remain economically viable and environmentally and socially responsible, and to share with Nebraskans a truthful representation of farm life and the connection between it and Nebraska's economic and social well-being.

A-FAN has three primary goals:

  1. To empower farmers and ranchers to share accurate information about food production and its importance.
  2. To help every Nebraskan understand the connection between farm life and their quality of life.
  3. To actively engage and counter those who do not tell the truth about animal agriculture and food production.
