Nebraska Extension in Cherry County

Local Interest

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.

All youth aged 14 & 15 who plan to work on a farm or ranch other than their own must be certified through a Hazardous Occupations Course.  Successful completion of the course will allow trained youth to operate a tractor over 20 hsp.  Additional information, schedule of dates, and the required advanced registration form are available.

Ranch/Farm Management Info

Information about ranch/farm lease information, crop budgets, custom rates and more can be obtained from UNL's Farm/Ranch site.

Another helpful site with information specific to the beef industry is beef.unl.edu

BeefWatch Podcast

The BeefWatch Podcast provides timely information to help beef cattle producers improve the sustainability and profitability of their operations.
