ST. PAUL, Neb. (AP) - Howard County has received the state of Nebraska’s “Livestock Friendly” designation for its support of the industry.

Gov. Pete Ricketts says the central Nebraska county is the 33rd to participate in the state program administered by the state Department of Agriculture.

The program gives counties an extra promotional tool to encourage the expansion of current livestock operations and attract new businesses.

Counties that wish to receive the designation must hold a public hearing, and the county board must pass a resolution to apply. A completed application must be submitted to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
