LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska is hosting a farm conference next week that will include America Online co-founder Steve Case, “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson and local celebrities.

The Farmer 2 Farmer event hosted by Farmers Business Network runs from Dec. 12-14 at the Hilton Omaha. Gov. Pete Ricketts, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and legendary former Husker coach Tom Osborne are expected to attend.

The event is expected to draw around 1,500 farmers and industry leaders. Case, Osborne and Robertson are scheduled to give speeches.

Farmers Business Network is an independent farmer-to-farmer network, helping producers share farm data to make agronomic and financial decisions.

The event will focus on American entrepreneurs. Last year’s conference was held in Davenport, Iowa, with more than 600 guests from 20 states.
