Founded in 1913, Nebraska Farmers Union is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life and economic well-being and of family farmers and ranchers, and their rural communities.
As Nebraska’s largest family farm and ranch ag organization with over 4,000 family farm and ranch families as members, Nebraska Farmers Union is dedicated to the farm income issues which matter most to rural families. With active members across the state, Farmers Union is one of Nebraska’s oldest and strongest grassroots organizations.
This is the most severe and widespread natural disaster in the history of the state. The frozen ground, heavy snow base, the thicker than normal river ice due to the coldest February on record, and the heavy spring rains set in motion river flooding that set all-time flood stage records for the Missouri, Platte, Elkhorn, and Loup rivers as well as many of their tributaries at the same time. The financial losses for agriculture are currently estimated at $400 million for livestock and $440 million for cropland. By the time farmsteads, equipment, and stored grains – most of which will not be covered by insurance – is counted the estimated losses will grow.
Thousands of Nebraskans suffered both financial and emotional losses as the result of the recent unprecedented 500 year floods in the eastern part of Nebraska and severe blizzards in western Nebraska.
