Nebraska Land Link provides opportunities to connect land seekers with retiring landowners.

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.

Soil temperatures are taken at 4 inches below the soil surface under bare soil. We have included the former location names (AKA=also known as) for your convenience in locating previous sites.

This report is provided daily by the Nebraska State Climate Office. Visit the NSCO and Nebraska Mesonet websites for more detailed local and state climate data.
