Local Interest

I had the opportunity to participate in the On-farm Research Reporting sessions last month in Auburn. There were a number of projects reported on at the meeting through the Nebraska Extension On-Farm Research Program. We had a few conducted here in southeast Nebraska.
The Agricultural Land Management Quarterly webinar series will offer management advice and insight for Nebraska landowners, agricultural producers and others with an interest in agricultural land.

The widespread flooding and winter weather across our great state has been at the top of all of our minds, including those of 4-H youth, volunteers, staff, and alumni across Nebraska and the country. Thanks to all of you for what you’re doing.

There will be a long road to recovery, and many 4-H’ers and our supporters will want to contribute.

As you assist young people with considering what can be done to support recovery efforts, please share the following:

  The official identification for COUNTY and STATE FAIR for all classes of goats and sheep is a Scrapie Tag.  

Before you can get Scrapie Tags, you must have a premise ID number and a Flock ID number, which the Department of Agriculture can assign to you. Call them at 402-434-2300. 

Scrapies tags may be purchased from Allflex. The cost of the tags is the families responsibility. (Order Form)

The Extension Office has a universal tagger available.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension is excited to bring you the  Great Plains Judging Circuit. A great lineup of contests throughout the state gives young people the opportunity to perfect their skills in preparation for the PASE contest on June 29. Qualifying youth must attend two contests at minimum, in addition to the PASE contest to be eligible for awards and scholarships. The top-5 individuals in the Senior (age 14-18) and Intermediate (10-13) divisions will be recognized as part of the All-State Team during a Grand Drive at the 2022 Nebraska State Fair.
