Gage County Extension Board Meeting - Friday, December 6 - Noon, Gage County Extension Office

The Gage County Extension Board will meet Friday, December 6 at noon at the Extension Office located at 1115 W. Scott Street, Beatrice. An agenda is on file at the office.

University of Nebraska Extension and the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) are planning a series of Farm Bill education meetings in late November through December in Nebraska to assist producers as they begin to make farm-bill related program decisions.

The 2018 Farm Bill, signed into law last December, reauthorized the existing Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC) commodity crop safety net programs that were in the 2014 Farm Bill, however, producers will need to make new program enrollment decisions over the coming months.

Winners were everywhere at the 2019 4-H Achievement celebration held Sunday, November 10 at the 4-H Building. We are proud to award 4-H members, volunteers, and supporters for their achievements in 4-H!
