Governor's Ag Conference is Feb. 15 and 16



Nebraska Department of Agriculture Director Greg Ibach is reminding all Nebraskans about the upcoming registration deadline for the 24th Annual Governor's Ag Conference.

The Conference, scheduled for Feb. 15 to 16, will be held at the Holiday Inn and Convention Center in Kearney. Early registration for the conference ends Feb. 1.

"I encourage farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals to attend this informative event," Ibach said. "It's a great opportunity to get an outlook on the future of our industry."

Speakers at this year's Conference include a panel that will discuss connecting consumers with farmers and ranchers to share information about agricultural production. That panel consists of Willow Holoubek from the Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (A-FAN), Dawn Caldwell from Common Ground Nebraska and Pete McClymont with We Support Agriculture. Other featured speakers include Bruce Knight of Strategic Conservation Solutions, who will provide an update on the federal Farm Bill reauthorization. Archie Clutter with the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska will explain how the University is positioning itself to be a part of meeting the challenge of providing food to a growing world population. Bill Holbrook from The ProExporter Network will discuss the opportunities and challenges farmers will face in meeting that food production demand. This year's keynote presentation will be delivered by John Doggett, senior lecturer of International Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainability as well as a senior research fellow at the University of Texas at Austin. He will discuss the role of Nebraska agriculture in the future global economy.

Those interested in attending the Conference can register by calling NDA toll-free at 800-831-0550 or visiting

The Conference is open to anyone interested in learning more about the issues facing Nebraska agriculture. The $80 registration fee covers participation at the entire Conference.
