A Nebraska Tractor and Equipment Safety Certification Course is coming up on June 7, 2022, at the Legacy of the Plains Museum (2930 Old Oregon Trail #8500) in Gering. 

Nebraska Extension and Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Public Health, have announced plans for the annual “tractor safety” training courses scheduled at 6 sites across Nebraska in late May and early June. Students will complete the first day of the course either by attending a hands-on event at one of two locations or online through the eXtension Foundation Campus website. The hands-on events will take place May 24 in North Platte, and May 26 in Grand Island.

The new Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) program is up and running! Thank you all for your patience with the shutdown and change. For the youth who have completed YQCA already this year and plan to go to state fair or AKSARBEN, you will need to go into the new system, create an account, and upload your certificate from this year that you completed. You can do that here: https://yqcaprogram.org/.
