Business & Industry

Basic economic activities of the community include farming, cattle feeding, trucking and tourism. The principal crops are wheat, corn, pinto beans, sunflowers and alfalfa. A number of our businesses depend upon needs of the farmers for their products and services.

Our local fuel distributors, grain storage facilities, fertilizers plants and spray applicators do a booming business in the South Platte river valley and the table lands nearby. The locally-produced corn and pinto bean crops are hauled by local truckers to nearby feedlots and storage facilities in Nebraska and Colorado.

The favorable location near the junction of I-80 from Cheyenne and I-76 from Denver is an attraction for prospective firms. Availability of utilities, a plentiful water supply and an ambitious work force make our community an ideal place to locate an industry. Approximately 15 acres of land in and adjacent to our town are zoned for industry.

Wages in this area are in the normal range and we have a large potential work force eager for work.

Big Springs has a rich past and an exciting future that we want to share with visitors. The proposed National Trails Museum to be built a few miles east on Interstate 80 will provide employment for many local workers and will give visitors a fuller appreciation of our rich heritage which was created by the pioneers who left their marks in the deep ruts of the Oregon Trail as they pursued their dreams of a better tomorrow.

Big Springs, a dynamic community with a pioneer spirit greets the 21st century with great anticipation. We are a family-oriented community, supporting school, churches and local businesses. We are proud of our past, our peaceful present and are looking forward to a prosperous future.

A business and industry committee was appointed several years ago to explore the possibility of attracting potential businesses to locate in our community. For more information write to the Big Springs Chamber of Commerce Office at P.O. Box 436, Big Springs, NE 69122 or call us at (308) 889-3681.

Big Springs...Remembering the past, Living for the present, Planning for the future!
