Nebraska ag businesses get hand with state grants


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)--Value-added agriculture enterprises in Nebraska have received grants from the state to help with everything from turning tomatoes into snack chips to studying the possibility of a meat-processing facility in Bassett.

The 14 grants totaling more than $360,000 were awarded recently by the state Department of Economic Development and Nebraska Rural Development Commission.

The grants are intended to help the startup and growth of value-added ag enterprises, among other things.

The largest grant, more than $66,600, will help a business buy equipment that automatically extracts honey. Among the other recipients are businesses that sell locally grown ag products, manufacture compost pellets for lawn care and sell horse and dog treats.
