New Extension Land Link Program Connects Land Seekers with Retiring Landowners
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 3, 2021 — A new Nebraska Extension program will work to connect new and beginning farmers and ranchers with retiring landowners who are interested in transitioning their land to a new owner.
Nebraska Land Link is now accepting applications from interested land seekers and landowners, with the goal of providing land access using lease agreements, lease-to-own arrangements, buy-sell arrangements or other creative methods that are mutually beneficial for both parties.
National Beef Month
May is National Beef Month, and Nebraska has historically been known as “The Beef State.” So as the weather warms, the time and place are right to celebrate beef month with a barbecue. Nebraska Extension Educator Tammie Ostdiek recommends, when handling beef or any meat, keep in mind these good food safety practices:
Clean: Wash hands before preparing foods and after handling raw meats, such as when making hamburger patties or cutting meat for kabobs. Clean and sanitize utensils and surfaces that contact raw meats.
A family walk is a great way to connect while being physically active. Like any routine, though, you may be feeling the need to spice it up. If your family is in a walking rut, Nebraska Extension Educator Hannah Guenther suggests these four tips to boost the fun for everyone.
