Nebraska Extension’s Landlord/Tenant Cash Rent Workshops for 2020 and Beyond will provide the latest leasing, real estate and management information to operators, tenants and landowners in Nebraska this winter. The workshop is scheduled in 19 communities throughout the state, between Dec. 6, 2019, and March 18, 2020.

Raising Nebraska is debuting the latest addition to its website in time for the holiday season – recipes. Experience Coordinator Sarah Polak has been collecting the recipes presented at Raising Nebraska during the 2018 and 2019 State Fair for posting on-line. "On-line seemed the best venue for us to share this information. We have so many fairgoers who request the recipes that we frequently run out of paper copies. We also have fairgoers that are unable to attend a particular demonstration, want to share the recipe with a friend, or are interested in new ways to prepare Nebraska products." There are recipes on line for every taste and season of the year. The most requested recipes are for the Churros with Chocolate Sauce and the Sorghum Chocolate Chip Cookies.
