Western Nebraska rancher tabbed as new state ag director
Nebraska Governor-elect Jim Pillen has selected rancher Sherry Vinton to be the state’s next ag director.
Vinton, the first Vice-President with the Nebraska Farm Bureau, owns and operates a large cow/calf herd near the western town of Whitman.
Pillen says Vinton will help implement his vision of growing the state’s ag industry.
Steve Wellman, current ag director, will continue to be a leader, according to Pillen’s statement.
