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.
March is a good time to prune most trees and shrubs. By waiting until just before new growth begins, pruning wounds are sealed more quickly and there is a reduced risk of cold temperature injury. Exceptions to pruning in March are spring flowering shrubs like lilac, mockorange, Forsythia, Weigela and some Hydrangeas and Spirea. These are best pruned just after they finish blooming.
The most commonly eaten vegetables are potatoes and tomatoes according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. It is important to vary your veggies throughout the week by eating from the five vegetable subgroups: dark green, red and orange, legumes (beans and peas), starchy and other vegetables (see Table 1).
Options for certification include personal certification through your local Veterinarian or Nebraska Extension Beef Educator, completing an online certification course at bqa.org (free), or attending a local BQA Training.
