LINCOLN — Hannah Klitz, owner of Oak Barn Beef near West Point, will be featured in the next episode of the Nebraska Women in Agriculture webcast, “Open for Business: A Nebraska Women in Agripreneurship Series,” July 13 at 6:30 p.m.
The monthly series highlights the entrepreneurial spirit of women in agribusiness from across the state, offering creative insights and the stories behind what it takes to build a business.
The conversations focus on surviving business shocks such as disasters, regulatory changes and shifting family dynamics. The webcasts are hosted by Brittany Fulton, extension assistant with the Nebraska Women in Agriculture program.
Oak Barn Beef utilizes DNA testing and dry-aging, and ships Nebraska beef directly to consumers across the U.S. Klitz started the business as a sophomore in college and now owns and operates it with her husband, Eric. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May 2020 with a degree in animal science and minors in the Nebraska Beef Industry Scholars Program and the Engler Entrepreneurship Program.
Klitz also works full time as the communications coordinator at The Combine, a program by Invest Nebraska that supports Nebraska agricultural technology startups.
The webcast is free to attend but registration is required on the Nebraska Women in Agriculture program website, https://wia.unl.edu.
