Nearly 500 of those people live right here in Nebraska. Statistically, 50 of them will die without receiving their needed life-saving procedure.
Even though 95% of adults in the United States support organ donation, only 54% actually sign up to do it, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

First letting them see some “best guesses” forecasts, using some common sources of information, i.e. FAPRI, Kansas State data. Secondly making it known that an electronic spreadsheet is available for individual use. For those wishing to make their own forecasts. Regardless of the complexity and the challenges faced in making a good prediction of heifer values, it is none the less important to do so.
