Local Interest

SDSU Extension, Kansas State University and the University of Nebraska will host a series of Diversifying with Small Ruminants workshops June 7 in Salina, KS, June 8 in O'Neil, NE and June 9 in Chamberlain, SD. The program will go from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and lunch will be provided.

All are encouraged to attend whether they already own sheep or are considering including them on their operation. The program is primarily sheep centered, but anyone with an interest in goats is also more than welcome. Topics will include multi-species grazing, general sheep production conversations, and marketing your products. Additionally, local experienced producers from each state will be answering questions in a roundtable discussion.

As Nebraskans are returning to their homes following the recent wild fires.  Nebraska Extension has available resources to help answer and assist the decisions that need to be made following these tragedies.    

Those affected by recent wildfires are likely unsure where to begin.  It is vital that you follow safety guidelines that are being facilitated by area emergency management agencies. 

When a home or buildings partially remain following a fire, note there is likely damage to the structure. People should try and save what they can but saving food that has been in a fire is not a good idea.
