NE Extension offers clinic for farmland inheritors

Lincoln—Those who have inherited or received farmland and want to learn more about the best strategies for managing the asset are encouraged to attend one of several Nebraska Extension programs being offered across the state in August and September.

“I am contacted monthly from citizens who have had their parents pass away, and now they are managing a farm for the first time in their lives,” said Allan Vyhnalek, Nebraska Extension educator and event speaker. “They may have even grown up there, but haven’t been around for 30 or 40 years and need to understand that farming practices and management concepts have changed.”

Sindelar joins Clay County Extension staff

2001 Lincoln High School graduate to serve as Extension Educator working in all areas of cropping

BY TORY DUNCAN

Childhood experiences on his father’s family farm led Michael Sindelar to the world of Extension education, according to Sindelar, a 2001 graduate of Lincoln High School.

“My father’s family farm is what eventually led me to the field that I’m in,” Sindelar said. “I was born and raised in Lincoln, but my exposure to the family farm that my father grew up on gave me the direction that I eventually came to.”

Sindelar, after a five-year stint in the United States Navy from 2005 to 2010, graduated with an undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, while this past May, Sindelar earned his master’s degree in Agronomy, also from UNL.
