New Webinar Series for Farm and Ranch ManagementThe Department of Ag Economics is launching a new webinar series to discuss COVID-19’s impact on farm/ranch management issues in Nebraska.
#socialdistancing: Create Physical Distance but Stay in TouchIt may be easier to stay six feet from the nearest person but that doesn’t mean that farmers and ranchers aren’t having to cope with uncertainty. Learning to recognize your stressors and how to manage stress can help you personally and those around you. If you recognize someone in distress, use a caring approach in listening to them, and then connect them to resources.
COVID-19 ResourcesThe following link provides current resources related to COVID-19 for your family, your businesses, and your community.
Nebraska Extension, Nemaha County, is taking proactive steps to protect the health and safety of its employees and customers in respect to the potential spread of COVID-19. On Friday, March 20, 2020, the Nemaha County Commissioners made the decision to lock the courthouse doors. OUR OFFICE REMAINS OPEN but services are modified. We are closed to the general public until further notice. Our staff will be working both in the office and remotely. We can be reached by phone and email.
With most of southeast Nebraska receiving much needed rain the past few days and rain predicted for this week, it will be an excellent time to scout crop fields for potential problems. Many areas received torrential rains with the possibility of having flooded crops or even some crops washed out, with erosion in fields.
