Educate Yourself and Save a Life
Over 114,000 Americans are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Each year, that number on the waiting list continues to grow much larger than the number of donors. Nearly 500 of those people live right here in Nebraska. Statistically, 50 of them will die without receiving their needed life-saving procedure.
Even though 95% of adults in the United States support organ donation, only 54% actually sign up to do it, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
What is a reasonable value to spend on beef replacement heifers for the coming 2017-2018 production season? Like many decisions this may seem very complex or difficult to determine, and it can be since there are many factors. The intention of this report is to help stakeholders in two ways. First letting them see some “best guesses” forecasts, using some common sources of information, i.e. FAPRI, Kansas State data. Secondly making it known that an electronic spreadsheet is available for individual use. For those wishing to make their own forecasts. Regardless of the complexity and the challenges faced in making a good prediction of heifer values, it is none the less important to do so.
