Nebraska's agricultural land base is considerable, being comprised of more than 45 million acres of land in farms and ranches according to the most recent 1997 Census of Agriculture. Currently, it's total estimated market value is more than $32 billion. There is much diversity to this base as one moves across the state, reflecting major differences in soils and climatic features which, in turn, affect agricultural productivity and the various non-agricultural uses. The result is a virtual collage of hundreds of local agricultural land markets, each having unique land value levels and market characteristics.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The USDA announced on December 23, 2003 the first diagnosis in the United States of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease) in a dairy cow. BSE is not contagious. It is unlikely that an outbreak of BSE will occur in North American cattle because the United States and Canada took action in 1997 to prevent transmission via contaminated feed. The risk to human health from BSE is minuscule. However, the diagnosis may seriously affect beef exports from the U.S.
