Lincoln, Neb., – The Nebraska Women in Agriculture program along with the Nebraska Beef Quality Assurance Program are excited to announce the first annual Herd That! Conference on Sept. 15, 2021, in Lincoln, Neb. at the Animal Science Complex on East Campus.

 The conference will focus on the five areas of risk management specific to livestock. The highlight of this year’s inaugural event will be a live cattle handling demonstration with Temple Grandin, Ph.D., Colorado State University and Dean Fish, Ph.D., ranch manager, Santa Fe Ranch. 

Please join us at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory for the 22nd Annual Open House on August 25, 2021. This year’s Open House, with corporate sponsor ELANCO will be a hybrid format with our traditional in-person event held at GSL along with a live streamed online webinar. The online webinar will only cover the morning sustainability topics.  Activities, demonstrations and commercial exhibits are planned so our guests can come and go as they please throughout the day.

A new course, Dealing with Conflict Dynamics for Farm and Ranch Families, strives to provide Nebraskans with tools to build a better culture. Participants will gain the skills and resources necessary to overcome the conflict that may be hampering their family and business relationships. The course will be taught by renowned farm family coach Elaine Froese and hosted by Nebraska Extension’s Women in Agriculture Program.
