Agriculture is more than a one-person job.
There’s a lot more to producing food than fields and farm animals. Raising Nebraska is designed to let people see agriculture from virtually every angle – from water conservation to soil health, from animal wellbeing to food safety, from invention to innovation, from economic impact to global hunger.
Creating the Raising Nebraska exhibit was also a collaborative effort, bringing together the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and the Nebraska State Fair.
The result one of the nation’s leading agriculture literacy experiences. This interactive experience spans every inch of its 25,000 square feet, focusing on where Nebraska agriculture is today – and how the state is positioned for global leadership in feeding the world.
