Thank you Luck of the Draw volunteers and donors
I hope everyone had a great Bull Bash weekend. Thanks to everyone who supported the Luck of the Draw Fundraiser. Thanks to all of the item donors, thanks to all of the volunteers, thanks KVSH for the advertising, thanks Cedar Canyon Steakhouse for hosting, and of course thanks to everyone who bought tickets.
There were many very happy winners at the drawing. If you heard that you won something, but didn’t pick it up, come by the Extension Office. We have all of the items that haven’t yet been picked up. Later this week the 4-H Council or someone from our office will be calling folks to let them know they won an item. If curiosity is getting the best of you, feel free to call our office tomorrow at 402-376-1850 and find out if you were one of the winners.
Cornhusker Economics Outlook meeting March 5 at Valentine’s Niobrara Lodge, 9:00-11:30 am
There will be a Cornhusker Economics Outlook meeting March 5 at Valentine’s Niobrara Lodge. This is the 9th year the meeting series has been held at various locations across the state. We are very fortunate to be able to host on of the meetings here in Valentine this year. The Outlook meeting will focus on the ag outlook and management decisions for farmers and ranchers. The workshop will be fast-paced, with concise discussions of crop, livestock, policy, and land outlook:
Kate Brooks will provide outlook and analysis for beef and other livestock producers. Kate is the UNL Extension Livestock Marketing Specialist.
Cory Walters will discuss the outlook for corn, soybeans, and wheat to help producers make sound production, marketing, and risk management decisions. Cory is a UNL Extension Crop Marketing Specialist.
Brad Lubben will discuss the policy outlook and program alternatives to help producers effectively combine farm programs, crop insurance, and marketing strategies for success. Brad is one of the top Ag Policy economists in the nation.
I will give a brief discussion of current land and leasing economics.
Once again, the meeting is the 9 – 11:30 the morning of Wednesday, March 5 at the Niobrara Lodge. I would like you to pre-register if possible.
As always, you can call the extension office at 402-376-1850 for more information.
