It’s nearly impossible to predict how much damage this past winter’s weather did to existing alfalfa fields. While alfalfa usually comes through winter in pretty good shape in our area, I’m sure this year there could be plenty of exceptions.

It will be a couple weeks at least before you might expect to see the beginnings of spring growth. However, it’s important that you determine the amount of damage as soon as possible so you have time to respond in the best way possible.

Here are a series of articles on flooding and horses produced by LSU Extension
As the flood waters recede and we are able to get back in to our farms and ranchers it is important to think about drinking water safety. It is common for private wells to be immersed with the flood waters. The flood waters commonly contain high levels of bacteria such as fecal coliforms and E. coli. These microbes can cause short-term health effects such as diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms.
Quite a few ag land leases in Nebraska start on March 1st. Do you have questions about setting up that new lease and new lease rate? In addition to the traditional face-to-face meetings that are held, there will be a new feature - Ag Land Management Quarterly Webinars.
Are you feeding cane, millet, or oat hay, or maybe corn stalk bales, to your cows this winter? If so, don’t let high nitrate levels kill your cows or cause abortions.
