Custer County Nebraska is the home to global leaders in agriculture and industry. And it’s all accomplished in the heart of America where rural living is defined by its dedicated work ethic, fiscal responsibility, and pioneer spirit. As a byproduct of that character and our location as the gateway to the Ogallala Aquifer, our local agriculture producers can boast the title of largest corn county in Nebraska harvesting 46 million bushels annually, and the second largest cow county in the nation.

Life in Custer County is enhanced by its friendly communities, a wealth of educational opportunities, state-of-the-art healthcare and medical facilities, and small-town living with excellent amenities. Broken Bow, the county seat and population hub of 3,559 serves as a regional hub to our neighbors, drawing just over 20% of our workforce from 50 miles or more away. This creates a attractable labor shed of just over 100,000 people.
In 2013, 12 business opened their doors for the first time in Custer County, 11 businesses expanded, over 100 jobs were created, and nearly $25 million dollars of capital was invested to do so.
