US Rep. Don Bacon comes to the Panhandle

U.S. Representative Don Bacon held a meeting Wednesday with Panhandle crop producers, cattlemen and local officials hosted in part by the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission. The meeting with the Omaha representative stretched over several hours and was held in a conference room at the Weborg 21 Centre with a dozen or so attendees.

Bacon held a similar meeting in North Platte on Thursday and told the Star-Herald the purpose of the meetings — attended by producers and manufacturers for ag bankers, cattle, sugar beets, dry beans, wheat and corn — was to build better policy in a post-COVID reality.
