Attorney General Jon Bruning has presented $100,000 to We Support Agriculture, a coalition that supports Nebraska agriculture producers through coordinated communication, education and advocacy.

The donated funds are provided through a Supplemental Environmental Project fund.

“In Nebraska, agriculture is more than a resource – it’s a way of life,” said Bruning in a news release. “I’m proud to support efforts to protect the cornerstone of our state economy from the actions of extremist groups like the Humane Society of the United States.”

We Support Agriculture focuses on educating Nebraskans on caring for livestock animals and their connection to Nebraska’s food security, economy and social well-being. Their mission is to provide an understanding that Nebraska agricultural producers are thoughtful individuals who know how to care for their animals.

As the State’s legal representative, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) vigorously defends and enforces the laws protecting Nebraska’s natural resources. When the AGO settles an enforcement case, companies are required to clean up the mess, pay appropriate fines and may agree to fund a court-approved Supplemental Environmental Project.

Why has there been no investigation on the HSUS tatics by the Attorney General, in the HSUS protection of all animals from human use, whether it be pets or food. When will our government representatives realize this is a social movement based on a long indoctrination of the american public. HSUS needs to be investigated. They money they have removed from the economy in all animal based enterprizes is insurmontable. The National deficite may pale in comparison! This is our livelihood.

This is wonderful. A massive PR campaign can now be implemented to fight the outrageous actions of the HSUS. Unless the members of the public fight this organization, we will have NO meat on the table, NO farm animals, NO pets in the home, NO rodeos, NO zoos and NO circuses. I am so happy that this state has taken up the matter and going forward to protect the interests of all involved in animal husbandry.
