Local Interest

A blog is very similar to a website, but it is usually written by one person or a small group. A blog is more informal and written in conversational style like news columns you see in the paper. If you are not aware, my news column is also a blog post at Crop Tech Cafe. There are three blogs or hybrid blogs written by accountability region or multi-county Water & Cropping Systems Extension Educators. I want to write a bit about each of them, including Crop Tech Cafe.

Description of Work:
Transform lives by delivering, teaching and managing effective educational programming in 4-H by providing positive youth development to include current and emerging youth issues in assigned area. Must be able to engage youth through diverse learning strategies at appropriate places and times. Ability to travel within service area.

The Center for Agricultural Profitability at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present Returning to the Farm, a workshop series for families who are in the transition process of bringing members back to the farm or ranch. It will begin with a two-day workshop in York for multi-generational families on Dec. 9 and 10 at the Holthus Convention Center, 3130 Holen Ave.  

 The series assists families and agricultural operations with developing financial plans and successful working arrangements to meet their unique needs. It will guide families in developing estate and transition plans, setting personal and professional goals and improving the communication process between family members. 

Nebraska Extension in Saline County is seeking candidates to fill two Extension Board positions through an open nomination process to serve a 3-year term from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2025.

The first position is for Saline County residents located in Dorchester, Crete, or Pleasant Hill townships and second position located in North Fork, South Fork, or Olive townships.

Nebraska Extension will host a workshop covering agricultural land management and leasing considerations for 2023 in Beatrice from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 9 at the office of Nebraska Extension in Gage County, 1115 W. Scott St.

It will offer updated leasing information relevant to landlords and tenants, including tips for communication and negotiating. It will address topics like equitable rental rates, managing and adjusting farmland leases, landlord-tenant issues, pasture leasing, crop share leasing and other management considerations.

The Farmers & Ranchers College was formed in January 2000 with the purpose of providing high quality, dynamic, up to date educational workshops for area agricultural producers in south central Nebraska through a collaborative effort between business, industry and higher education leaders.

The mission of the Farmers & Ranchers College is to provide high-quality continuing education to farmers and ranchers in a rapidly changing global agricultural environment. Futhermore, the Farmers & Ranchers College will provide the tools necessary so that agricultural producers will be able to respond positively to these changes using a profitable decision-making process.
