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!

The fair is over, the excitement settled, and it's time for 4-H members to record your accomplishments for the year. October 1 is right around the corner - the time to submit your Career Portfolio and Award Application.

County-level: Career Portfolio and/or Junior Achievement Application (ages 8-14), Senior Achievement Application (ages 15-18) may be submitted

State Level: New for 2019 - Nebraska 4-H will ONLY accept Senior Achievement Applications.
