BECK'S WHY I FARM ROADTRIP: NEBRASKA FARMER, Shannon Peterson

Shannon Peterson has been involved in agriculture her entire life, just like the generations of Nebraska farmers and ranchers who cared for the land before her. “My husband and I have been married almost 18 years now. We are in a partnership with his brother and his mom. His dad passed away this past September. We’re the fourth generation on his family’s farm. The kids will hopefully be the fifth.” Shannon explains. In addition to row crops, the family raises pigs and cattle. “I primarily deal with the cattle side of things. I love that part of the operation.”
