US Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue joined Governor Pete Ricketts and Nebraska Ag Secretary Steve Wellman Thursday for a tour of the Lincoln Premium Poultry plant in  Fremont.







The plant provides Costco with two-million chickens  each week.






Governor Pete Ricketts said the Costco facility uses 341,000 bushels of corn and 3,000 metric tons of soybeans every week, or the equivalent of 2,000 acres of corn and 3,000 acres of beans.
