Jenny's REESources

More Neb. State Fair results announced

 

Jenny's REESources, by Jenny Rees, UNL Extension
The state fair is always a special time of year for me! Growing up, it was often our family vacation as we made the trip to Lincoln to participate in various 4-H contests and events. This was my 11th state fair "on the other side" and it is exciting watching youths building life skills and competing in the events.
Husker Harvest Days is this week and the theme in the UNL IANR building is "Always Looking Forward." This year marks 100 years of the establishment of the Cooperative Extension System and we're looking forward to the next 100 years. Key exhibits this year focus on using agricultural sensors to manage nitrogen and water use; pollinator importance in our food system; digital diagnostics for homeow-ners and crop production; management tools to better understand climate variability; alternative forage strategies for the beef industry; mitigating the Shiga-toxin producing E.coli bacteria; broadband and economic development; and agricultural literacy. Additional participants include college reps from UNL's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture at Curtis, the Nebraska LEAD (Leadership Education Action Development) program, and IANR's Market Journal. Hope to see you there!
North Central Sustainable Ag Research and Education's new partnership grant program: A free webinar At 2 p.m. Tuesday will discuss a partnership grant program intended to foster cooperation between agriculture professionals and small groups of farmers and ranchers to catalyze on-farm research, demonstration, and education activities related to sustainable agriculture. Test your connection prior to the meeting by conducting the test at \t "_blank" http://admin.adobecon-nect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm. Connect to the webinar at 2pm CST on Sept. 16, at \t "_blank" https://umconnect.umn.edu/r96336373/. University, NRCS, ag consultants, and non-profits may apply working in collaboration with farmers or ranchers. Partnership grants are for on-farm research, demonstration or educational projects and are funded for up to 24 months; up to $30,000 total funding request per application is allowed; an agricultural professional is the grant applicant and the principal investigator; typically three or more farmers or ranchers from distinct operations are expected to be substantially involved in the project.
A celebration of our American heroes: Gary Zoubek, York County Extension, shared the following: There is "A Celebration of Our American Heroes" planned for 6:30 p.m. next Thursday at the Seward Ag Pavilion. The celebration is to honor everyone who has served our nation and to connect with veterans who are already involved in agriculture and those who dream to do so. The doors open at 6 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. and music at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased from Kerry Hoffschneider. Proceeds will stay in Nebraska to assist veterans through the Farmer Veteran Coalition to be used for micro-grants that help existing farmers with start-up costs, equipment costs or educational opportunities.
Promote the Homegrown by Heroes label that is establishing veteran products in a multitude of markets state-wide; provide equipment adaptation for veterans with disabilities; acquire equipment for veterans who are needing tools to jump start their ag business; help veterans gain access to business planning service such as legal, food safety or other resources.
