Nebraska Extension in Cherry County

Local Interest

Passing the farm/ranch on to the next generation is a tough job, especially if the next generation is unsure of what will happen when their parents pass. A farm and ranch transition workshop series designed for these people who are wondering what is going to happen is planned to be held in Valentine, Ainsworth, O’Neill, Norfolk and York from Oct. 23 to Nov. 14.

      The workshops will focus on the needs of the “sandwich generation” on whom farm/ranch transition and transfer often falls. This is the generation (Gen2) caught between parents who still own the land (Gen1) and the younger children who might want to join the operation (Gen3).   

We have a wonderful opportunity to collect information from working pregnant women living in rural Nebraska and need your help. We want to hear these women’s ideas about infant care as well as their plans after their baby is born!

We are looking for expectant working women (in their third trimester or close to that) living in Nebraska.  We plan to meet with them for a total of three times over the duration of one year, and, after each visit, compensation is provided for their time.  Additional information about the study is provided in the flyer.
