Governer's Summit

The FCDC attended the 2nd Annual Governor’s Summit on Economic Development. At the event there were sessions to learn about housing, transportation, and workforce strategies to Grow Nebraska.

Beavers Dairy

Beavers Dairy is a new dairy operation that started milking cows in May and is located southeast of Shickley. What's special about this operation is that it uses robotic milking. This technology is fully automated and is good for the cows as well, it monitors the cows and collects useful data that can be used to tell if a cow is doing well. For more information and a look at this operation, view this article that was featured on Pure Nebraska                        : http://www.1011now.com/content/news/Local-Dairy-Uses-Milking-Robot-430359993.html
