Ag Groups Support New Ag Processing Facility
“We applaud the State of Kansas and other stakeholders, for their continued efforts to improve the Kansas ag economy, create jobs and expand local markets for Kansas farmers. Private investment is critical to improving the Kansas ag economy, which is going through some of its toughest times since the 1980s.
Agriculture is the largest economic driver in Kansas, valued at nearly $67.5 billion and accounting for 44.5 percent of the state’s total economy. Investment in animal agriculture, regardless of species, adds value to local economies. It is crucial for the agricultural producers in the state of Kansas to have many different options when it comes to selling and marketing their grain.
The construction of a new agricultural processing facility in Kansas is a great way to encourage growth and provide job security for both rural and urban Kansans.”
