The Bruno Ramos Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Bruno and the things he loved most. He loved working and agriculture and spent his free time with his animals or dreaming up ways to restore and repair his vehicles. It is our hope to keep Bruno’s memory alive by supporting students as they pursue trades and careers they have a passion for. Preference will be given to students pursuing a technical trade or a career in agriculture.

The Lambing and Kidding School, on February 10, 2024, will look at ways to give lambs and their kids the best chance of survival. The school is hosted by the Nebraska Sheep and Goat Producers Association and Nebraska Extension, offering tips and networking opportunities for lamb and goat producers.  

We have had a request for more livestock focused workshops so we are going to kick off this year with a great workshop with our local Livestock Systems Educator, Aaron Berger. Aaron will walk families through how to care for animals through proper feed rations, shelter and basic care for livestock.
