"May is egg month" in Nebraska


During a luncheon with egg producers and state senators, Nebraska Department of Agriculture Assistant Director Ginger Langemeier celebrated "May is Egg Month."

Langemeier presented Bill Claybaugh of Carroll, Neb., with a proclamation signed by Governor Dave Heineman declaring "May is Egg Month" in Nebraska.

Claybaugh, the President of the Nebraska Egg Council, presented Langemeier with Nebraska's official Easter egg out of appreciation for the work NDA and the Governor do to promote Nebraska's egg industry.

"Nebraska's egg industry plays an essential role in our state's economy," Langemeier said. "Our egg industry contributes $95 million to our state each year."
