Nebraska farmers prepare to provide Costco facility poultry

        FREMONT, Neb. (AP) Lincoln Premium Poultry hopes to find 125 producers to provide poultry for a Costco processing plant in eastern Nebraska.
        The Fremont plant is scheduled to open in about a year. Lincoln Premium Poultry is managing the facilities operations. That includes recruiting farmers to raise poultry, overseeing construction and recruiting employees.

        The company plans to build a facility where producers and prospective producers can see how the computers and equipment in poultry houses are operated. The company will also send field technicians to help farmers implement and follow the best practices.

        The company was in negotiations with about 80 local farmers last month. It expects to continue recruiting operators into early summer.
        The contracts will last about 15 years

    Nebraska State Patrol releases dashcam footage of accident

    A close call caught on a state trooper's dashcam. Take a look, a trooper comes up to a bridge on Highway 34 in southwest Nebraska. At the same time, a semi comes the other way. That semi crossed over the center line, poised for a head-on crash, but the trooper, quick thinking, swerved to avoid him. He was still side-swiped, but the trooper suffered only minor injuries. The semi driver went to the hospital. This is the third crash involving a state patrol car in the past week. A...More >>
