Dawson County ag groups donate beef to school for National Ag Week

Every year, farmers, ranchers, agricultural businesses, universities, and consumers across America join to recognize the contributions of agriculture during National Agriculture Week. This year, Dawson County Farm Bureau and Dawson County Cattlemen donated beef to local schools to benefit their communities and connect kids to agriculture, which is a cornerstone of the local economy.

Nebraska ranks number one in red meat production, and Dawson County ranks as the number two county in Nebraska with over $520 million sales of cattle and calves.
