The Nebraska Livestock Friendly County (LFC) program is a voluntary program that recognizes
counties that actively support the livestock industry.
Directed by the Nebraska Legislature, NDA uses the LFC program to assist counties and
agricultural producers promote the livestock industry.
"This program recognizes the positive economic
impact that a viable livestock industry has on communities across the state. Pursuing Livestock
Friendly designation is evidence that local officials view their local livestock industry as a vital
part of their future, and it shows they are prepared to pursue new opportunities."
~ Governor Dave Heineman
