Otoe County is the 24th county, out of 93 counties in the state, that is officially designated as livestock friendly through the state program, including: Adams, Banner, Box Butte, Cuming, Dawes, Deuel, Dodge, Gage, Garden, Grant, Hitchcock, Holt, Jefferson, Johnson, Kimball, Keith, Lincoln, Morrill, Saline, Scotts Bluff, Sheridan, Wayne and Webster Counties.

“Otoe County has shown it is committed to supporting the county’s livestock industry and related economic development,” Heidemann said. “Being part of the Livestock Friendly program is a way to recognize the tremendous impact the livestock industry has on main streets and the local economy.”

Heidemann presented the Livestock Friendly certificate to Otoe County Commissioners C.R. Hauptman, Rick Freshman, Carol Crook, Timothy Nelsen and Steve Lade. The county will receive road signs bearing the logo to display along highways.

The program is coordinated by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.

Department of Agriculture Assistant Director Bobbie Kriz-Wickham said the official designation makes a positive statement about Otoe County.

To apply for a livestock friendly county designation, the county board must hold a public hearing and pass a resolution to apply. A completed application is then submitted to Department of Agriculture for review.

Local producers or community groups can encourage their county board to submit a livestock friendly county application.
