Nebraska Agricultural Law Attorney

Agriculture is big business. It involves huge sums of money and enormous risks. There is no greater quantity of science in any area of business than in food production. Food production involves genetics, breeding, differential medical diagnoses, prescription and treatment with chemicals, nutrition, herd health, crop health, water purity, soil pollution, complex chemistry, and an array of complex regulations involving crops, milk, meat, vegetables, fruit, and nuts, and other regulatory issues.
