May and June include the months when those outdoor blood feeders — like ticks and mosquitoes — are most active in Nebraska. Not only are these pests annoying, but they have the potential to spread diseases that pose significant health threats. There are a variety of preventative measures that can minimize exposure to bites, but this article will focus primarily on repellents.

This summer, Nebraska Extension is hosting series of pasture walks across northeast Nebraska the 3rd Tuesday of the month, June – September. The first event will be held June 18th at 4:00 PM at the Dave Hansen ranch, 51193 875 Rd. Orchard, NE. Dave will provide a tour of his cow/calf and grass finished operation as well as sharing his personal grazing approach. 

Pasture walks provide an informal setting for attendees to learn about grazing principles, infrastructure options, and management practices from the host and through conversations with other participants. 

Due to the recent disasters in Nebraska, an infrequently used federal program has been made available to provide financial assistance to self-employed workers or workers otherwise not covered by regular unemployment insurance benefits payable through the Nebraska Department of Labor.

Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) is a program intended to provide temporary income to eligible individuals who become unemployed as a result of a major disaster, if the disaster has been declared as such by the federal government. It is funded by the federal government and not through state unemployment taxes paid by employers.
