Nebraska Ag Losses From Flood Damage Are Huge

Nebraska agriculture losses from flooding are estimated at one billion dollars.
Nebraska Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson estimates $400 million on crop losses because of crops that will be planted late – if at all.

Nelson also estimates up to $500 million in livestock losses as the state struggles with swollen rivers and breached or overtopped levees following heavy rain and snowmelt.

He says flooding is costing the state’s cattle industry $1 million a day in costs that usually aren’t covered by insurance.
