Growing opportunities for the Good Life

America is known as the Land of Opportunity and nowhere is that more true than here in Nebraska. Even as we grapple with the challenge of the pandemic, we’ve been hard at work to create and attract great-paying jobs to the Good Life. These jobs help families send their kids to school, own their own home and car, or go on that family vacation. They make it appealing for young Nebraskans to stay in our state after graduation. These jobs also provide the dignity and enjoyment of rewarding work.

As we continue to return to a more normal life, businesses are creating great-paying jobs here in the Good Life. Last week, I attended the ribboncutting ceremony for Scoular’s new Petsource facility in Seward. It’s a great example of how value-added agriculture is growing Nebraska. The $50-million facility is bringing about 100 jobs to Seward, and it will be sourced with Nebraska beef. So it’s not only creating great job opportunities in manufacturing, but also increasing opportunities for our livestock producers.
