Help protect and support animal agriculture in Nebraska.
Almost all of us have heard the words “Factory Farming” before. It gets used a lot these days by groups who oppose modern agriculture, and unfortunately these words have now trickled down to the consumer.
At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, over 80 volunteers from 15 different East Campus student organizations volunteered at the Husker Food Connection educating fellow students in front of the City Campus Union about where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture. During the event, 1,000 lunches were served and students participated in several activities while learning about Nebraska agriculture.

“Watching miniscule seedlings peep through the earth for the first time during a hazy, spring mist… experiencing the first steps that a newborn calf takes…or watching streams of golden grain pour into a combine are some of the incredible sights that one without an agricultural background or degree may never experience.”
High school FFA students from across Nebraska met in Lincoln for the 2nd Annual Agricultural Issues Academy recently and discussed issues like the Yahoo! News article, which stated that degrees in agriculture are among the most useless degrees currently.
