The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the National Strategic Research Institute at the University of Nebraska will begin a five-year partnership to help safeguard the U.S. food supply.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour is coming to Lincoln.

Brooks, a seven-time CMA Entertainer of the Year awardee, will perform in concert in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m. Aug. 14.

This will be the first concert at Memorial Stadium in 12 years, dating back to a Larry the Cable Guy show on July 4, 2009. The last musical performance at Memorial Stadium was Farm Aid III in 1987.

Land access is one of the biggest challenges facing aspiring and beginning farmers. For some landowners, they simply do not have the next generation available to take over their operation.

When you apply to Nebraska Land Link, either as a land seeker or a landowner, Nebraska Extension personnel will work to match your application with the most compatible counterpart. Using the answers you submit and offer in a potential interview, Nebraska Land Link matches are based on the shared values, interests and skills of both parties, so that a mutually beneficial and satisfying partnership can be forged over the course of the transition plan.
