JENNY’S REESources

by Jenny Rees
 
One of my favorite series of meetings each winter are the Nebraska On-Farm Research updates which will be held next week February 8, 9, 11, and 12th at North Platte, Grand Island, Norfolk, and ARDC near Mead respectively. I enjoy them because of the discussion, ideas, and because your farmer-peers share their research-why they did the studies they did and what they learned. There are numerous meetings right now and through meetings, farm magazines, social media, and the internet, you’re learning about various products and production practices.
