Nebraska Agriculture

Agriculture is the heart and soul of Nebraska. As the state’s leading industry, the impact goes far beyond the plate, providing Nebraskans with jobs, significantly contributing to the state’s economy, and touching the lives of its citizens every day. Annually, production agriculture contributes more than $25 billion to Nebraska’s economy, thanks to the hard work of Nebraska farmers and ranchers working on 49,100 farms and ranches spread across more than 45 million acres. In fact, farms and ranches use 92 percent of Nebraska’s total land area.

In 2014, Nebraska ranked fourth in the nation for commercial red meat production. Important commodities include cattle and calves, corn, soybeans, dry edible beans, hay, wheat and more.
