Lincoln, NE — The second-largest indoor farm show in the country—the Nebraska Ag Expo—is gearing up for farmers and ranchers on December 5-7 at the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln. Wednesday, December 6 will be “Nebraska Farm Bureau Day” at the Nebraska Ag Expo, with giveaways and member savings all day long. Nebraska Farm Bureau is located in Booth #2111 in Pavilion 2.
“Look for the Farm Bureau Approved Member Benefit Partner signs throughout the Nebraska Ag Expo for businesses offering valuable savings to Farm Bureau members,” said Tina Henderson, senior director of membership, marketing, and communications.
“On Wednesday, December 6—Nebraska Farm Bureau Day—the first 100 people to the Nebraska Farm Bureau Booth #2111 in Pavilion 2 will receive a free “Producer of Livestock” T-shirt,” Henderson said. “We look forward to visiting with you at the Nebraska Ag Expo!”
Nebraska Farm Bureau has been connecting innovators to agriculture since the start of the American Farm Bureau (AFBF) Ag Innovation Challenge. The Farm Bureau Ag Innovation Challenge is a national business competition that showcases United States startup companies that are developing innovative solutions to address challenges facing America’s farmers, ranchers, and rural communities. Farm Bureau will award $165,000 in startup funds to ten businesses, culminating at a live pitch competition and networking event at the AFBF Convention in January 2024 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Since the program began in 2015, Nebraska Farm Bureau has seen eight agriculture startups participate in the contest. Nebraska-based startup Idem Irrigation was one of the top 10 named in the AFBF Ag Innovation Challenge for 2023 for its ball sprinkler head technology. Stop by and visit with these Ag Innovation Challenge members at the Nebraska Ag Expo in the Innovation Hub in Pavilion 3! The Innovation Hub will be the focal point for showcasing the latest ag technologies such as autonomous equipment, electric vehicles, robotics, and AI solutions.
Alongside Nebraska Farm Bureau, ag insurance specialists from Farm Bureau Financial Services will be on hand to answer your insurance questions. The Midwest Ford Dealers booth will be right next to the Nebraska Farm Bureau booth, showcasing the newest trucks and engines and promoting the $500 Bonus Cash available to Farm Bureau members toward the purchase/lease of new Ford trucks. With over 40-member benefit partners, visiting the Nebraska Ag Expo is a great opportunity to learn about the various savings programs available and what Nebraska Farm Bureau has to offer.
“We are proud to sponsor the Nebraska Ag Expo,” Henderson said. “Attending this event is an excellent opportunity for us to meet Farm Bureau members from across Nebraska. Farm Bureau members are urged to stop by our booth for a free pair of leather work gloves as a member thank you gift.”
“We encourage members to download the Farm Bureau member benefits mobile app,” Henderson continued. “The app is a great way to find your membership card and access the special codes and links to find ‘cool savings’ that come with using the various benefits. You can find it on Google Play or the App Store by searching ‘fb benefits.’”
