The School of Natural Resources at University of Nebraska-Lincoln was fortunate to host Mr. David Domina, a trial lawyer with Domina and Associates, as our seminar speaker on Friday, February, 20, 2015. He gave a powerful presentation about forces that he sees on our farm landscapes.
In particular, he addresses the divide that I've mentioned between the goals of growth and production, which tend to make farms bigger and rural towns smaller, and the goals of sustaining rural communities. This seems to be the question of the era--can we ensure prosperity for farmers without killing the rural economy that surrounds them?
Take a listen. There are several challenges to think about.
