Nebraska Beef Ltd. and two of its former employees are severing some probation time and paying some fines for falsifying USDA grading records.

U.S. District Court for Nebraska has apparently concluded the case with a $200,000 fine and a year’s probation for the Omaha-based meat processing company. Earlier plea agreements resulted in 2019 in $1,000 fines for James Timmerman, 50, and Dolese Tippery, 61, both former Nebraska Beef employees.
