SCOTTSBLUFF, NE – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) today was designated a “Friend of Agriculture” by the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation PAC.  Smith is seeking re-election to Nebraska’s vast Third Congressional District, which encompasses 75 of Nebraska’s 93 counties.

Smith is a strong advocate for agriculture, export markets, and ethanol. In the last year he has held agriculture outreach and listening sessions across the Third District and advocated for targeted disaster assistance for farmers and ranchers.  Smith helped drive the successful completion of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and the U.S.-Japan trade agreement for agriculture.

“It is a tremendous honor to receive the support from an organization as important to Nebraska as the Nebraska Farm Bureau. Its members are literally on the frontlines of our state’s economy and the safety and security of our nation’s food supply.  I am humbled to receive the Friend of Agriculture designation,” said Smith.

Throughout his time in Congress, Smith annually has earned the Farm Bureau prestigious “Friend of the Farm Bureau” award, honoring elected officials whose voting records support agriculture.
