NEBRASKA 4-H & EXTENSION EVENTS AFFECTED BY COVID-19 VIRUS SITUATION - EVERYONE PLEASE READ!

As the COVID-19 situation in Nebraska continues to evolve, please know that Nebraska Extension is adapting and adjusting their recommendations and decisions. Our commitment is to respond with an abundance of caution to try to provide thoughtful and valuable information. And, to do our best to contribute to the protection of Nebraskans.

 We would like everyone to know that due to health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus situation, the difficult decision has been made by UNL about cancelling all Nebraska 4-H and Extension face-to-face programs for all events scheduled through June 15.

The 2019 Nebraska Farm Real Estate Market Highlights Report has been completed.  After record high land values in 2014, this marks the fifth year of consecutive decline in real estate values in Nebraska.    This report will show the values for regions in the state as well as discussion from panels on the trends we can expect in those regions.   A special feature of this report is the section covering emerging issues related to agricultural land in Nebraska.  Crop share leasing is the focus of this year's special feature.  

Land Rental Rates

The rental rates for crop and pasture ground are compiled in January of each year.  In February the rates are shared with land owners and producers.  If you would like to be on our mailing list to receive this information as soon as it is available, please contact the Nebraska Extension in Custer County office at  308-872-6831.  For your convenience the current and previous years rates can be viewed anytime.
