In process of bettering oneself

Typically the beginning and middle of June is fairly easy-going. And then Dugout Days and EdgarFest weekend roll around, and then it’s Clay Center’s Fourth of July Celebration, and then the fair, and Harvard’s Veterans Car Show, and Fairfield’s Triple F Fest, and then BOOM...school starts.

You know how I mentioned that this year was going to be the best year yet and it didn’t get a choice? Well....so far, since turning 27, it’s been extra stressful and busier than usual.

I’m not sure if this is just an added “bonus” to getting older, or if God’s up there testing me every day to see how tough I am. Either way, it’s been a trying couple of months.

USDA offers producers options to re-enroll or extend expiring CRP contracts

WASHINGTON–Farmers and ranchers with expiring Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts may now re-enroll in certain CRP continuous signup practices or, if eligible, select a oneyear contract extension. USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) also is accepting offers from those who want to enroll for the first time in one of the country’s largest conservation programs. FSA’s 52nd signup for CRP runs from June 3 to Aug. 23.

“Agricultural producers with expiring CRP contracts have set aside land to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, provide habitat for wildlife and boost soil health for at least a decade,” U.S. Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Bill Northey, said. “We want to make sure they–and their neighbors who may not have a CRP contract–know they have opportunities within CRP to continue their valuable contribution to our country’s conservation successes.”

NE FSA extends prevented plant reporting deadline to July 15

LINCOLN–The U.S Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Nebraska is extending the deadline for producers in the state to report their spring prevented plant crop acres to the agency.

FSA State Executive Director Nancy Johner today announced Nebraska producers now have until July 15 to report to FSA acres they intended to plant to crops this spring but could not do so because of the difficult weather conditions. This new deadline coincides with the July 15, FSA acreage certification deadline that is already in place.

“In many areas of the state, flooding and persistent wet weather have made it challenging for producers to get into their fields for planting,” Johner said. “Producers need to report prevented plant acres to FSA to retain eligibility for FSA program benefits. This extension provides them some flexibility to meet that reporting requirement.”

The social media block, or something like that

BULL

Tory Duncan • ccntory@gmail.com

Yep, I’m at it again! So you have all heard me rant about the social media stuff that I go off on. I realize that social media, in most people’s minds, is the way to go! I call uncle on that!

But....don’t demand that we know what is going on if you don’t come in and talk with us, call us or even email us. We do NOT have the time to spend on the over-the-top social media sites and/or blogs!

Thankfully and finally, the Nebraska Press Association and the News Media Alliance have teamed up to support a drive that supports what most don’t even get, or understand... see “AD” at the right.
