This year’s Ag Expo will feature Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen as a keynote speaker. The event is Tuesday, Feb. 7, at Southeast Community College’s Academic Excellence Center on the Beatrice Campus. Gov. Pillen will kick off the event at 1 p.m. and will be followed by Dr. David Kohl, professor emeritus at Virginia Tech.

“The Beatrice Chamber Ag Committee is very excited to have the opportunity to host newly-elected Governor Pillen, coupled with well-known ag economist Dr. Kohl,” said Kelly Lenners, one of the organizers of the event. “Both will offer the audience excellence insight on the ag economy within Nebraska and nationally.”
