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.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT FLOUR WHEN BAKING
The baking aisle at your local supermarket has grown to include a wide variety of flours. Flour is the finely-ground, sifted meal of grains, nuts, seeds, legumes or certain vegetables—each kind of flour has a different nutritional profile. The cooking and baking properties will vary by the type of flour you are using. The most common flours are milled from wheat, a Nebraska agriculture commodity. But today there are so many other choices.
This article will explore the variety of wheat flours to learn how to use them to maximize their nutritional makeup and baking qualities. A future article will delve into non-wheat flours.
The Incredible Edible Egg! Is a slogan has been around since 1976 and was updated in 2017 to The Incredible Egg. The American Egg Board uses this slogan to promote eating eggs as part of a healthy diet. Eggs are truly incredible. They are full of good nutrition, easy to prepare, inexpensive, and can be a part of a healthy diet. Simply put eggs are eggs, there is nothing else in them, just one ingredient…egg.
Limit Feeding Cows Corn as an Alternative to Hay
Feed costs make up the largest expense in a cow-calf operation. While hay is often used to feed cows through the winter, current prices make corn a competitive option to feeding hay. Considering corn has a higher energy content than hay, the cost of feeding hay is often higher than corn on a price per pound of energy basis. For example, corn priced at $3.30/bushel ($118/ton) equates to approximately $0.08 per pound of total digestible nutrients (TDN) while hay priced at $100/ton is nearly $0.11 per pound of TDN says Nebraska Extension Beef Systems Educator
