Nebraska is one of the leading agricultural producing states in the country, and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture is highly committed to ensuring that the state maintains its leadership position. Within the Department, the Division of Agricultural Promotions and Development assists agricultural producers and value-added companies in identifying target markets, coordinating trade missions and sponsoring outreach projects to market Nebraska products abroad. The Division utilizes funds available from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service along with membership in MIATCO (Mid-America International Agri-Trade Council), USMEF (United States Meat Export Federation) and USLGE (United States Livestock Genetic Exports) who also provide financial support and expertise for the marketing of Nebraska food and agricultural products.
