Scotts Bluff County is Nebraska’s newest “Livestock Friendly” county.
It is the sixteenth county in the state to receive the designation.
The Livestock Friendly designation is a way of recognizing the importance of the livestock industry to the county. It demonstrates that the county is open to agribusiness and the benefits that come with responsible livestock production.
To apply for a Livestock Friendly county designation, the county board must hold a public hearing and pass a resolution to apply. A completed application is then submitted to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture for review.
Local producers or community groups can encourage their county board to submit a Livestock Friendly county application.
