#socialdistancing: Create Physical Distance but Stay in TouchIt may be easier to stay six feet from the nearest person but that doesn’t mean that farmers and ranchers aren’t having to cope with uncertainty. Learning to recognize your stressors and how to manage stress can help you personally and those around you. If you recognize someone in distress, use a caring approach in listening to them, and then connect them to resources.

Food safety is in the news and on the minds of many people. Numerous foodborne illnesses have occurred in Nebraska during the last year. Most of the reported foodborne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from the home. The ServSafe® Food Safety Program is developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers for the food service staff that serve them.
