Do you want assistance to help your community grow livestock opportunities? AFAN would love to discuss opportunities for your community and help you identify issues that might be holding you back. We also encourage you to consider Nebraska’s Livestock Friendly program.
The Nebraska Department of Agriculture has created a Livestock Siting Assessment matrix. This is a practical tool for county officials to use to help determine whether to approve a conditional use permit or special exception application. It produces quantifiable results based on the scoring of objective criteria according to an established value scale.
