The 25th Annual Governor’s Ag Conference is to be held on February 12 and 13, reports an article from the Fremont Tribune. In the article, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman said, “I invite all Nebraskans to attend this event and participate in discussions that focus on the future of the state’s number one industry.”

The article mentions that the theme for the conference will be “A Platform for Nebraska Agriculture’s Future.” Several topics will be discussed at the conference, reports the Fremont Tribune, such as the future of biotechnology, livestock production practices and the effects of animal welfare laws of interstate commerce.

According to the article, one of the keynote speakers will be Jerry Hagstrom of the Hagstrom Report. Hagstrom will discuss the political debates going on in Washington, D.C. that have a direct effect on farming in Nebraska, reports the article. The article states that among these debates is the farm bill, which has the potential to help many farmers across the nation.

The article notes that the conference will also include a discussion about what is possibly the biggest issue for farmers during recent months; the severe drought that has taken over the mid-west as well as Nebraska.

Colle Farmers Market, an online farmers market community, has joined Governor Heineman in encouraging all Nebraskans to attend the conference. These issues do not only affect farmers. The farming industry is a huge part of the state’s overall economy and people should be aware of the issues influencing farms.

The company added that farmers should be encouraged to include their own input during the discussions that will take place at the conference. It is important for the government to know what farmers are dealing with and how they think issues can be resolved.

According to the article, registration information for the 2013 Governor’s Ag Conference can be found on the Nebraska Department of Agriculture website.
