In the center of “flood country” near Columbus, Nebraska, pig farmers are recuperating from flood waters that destroyed barns, bridges and much more. Those farmers are holding up as well as expected. “At one point, there was 1500 miles of state highway closed,” says Nebraska Pork Producer Association President Elect John Csukker. “It was a logistical nightmare trying to get people, feed and supplies to and from our hog farms. Some farms even had to boat in feed.” Csukker adds that equipment is being borrowed from neighboring states, and some farmers are even commuting 200 miles just to do chores. Despite the devastation that surrounds the countryside, one word that comes to mind: Thankful. “We’re grateful for all of the resources being dedicated to this area. We’ll get through it together, Nebraska Strong!” Listen to the story.
