The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition (NGLC) and Nebraska Extension have partnered to bring Dr. Dan Thomson, a third generation bovine veterinarian from Clearfield, IA to travel to several locations throughout the state to speak about the beef cattle industry. The event is called “The U.S. Beef Cattle Production Journey: The Destination Is Up to Us.”

A new online tool from Nebraska Extension aims to connect farmers and cattle producers to encourage mutually beneficial agreements to use crop residue for grazing. The Crop Residue Exchange tool provides a searchable database of cropland available for grazing.

After creating an account, farmers can list available cropland by drawing their plot on an interactive map and entering information on the type of residue, fencing, water availability and dates available.
