    Could satellite technology be used to efficiently measure pasture health on a dairy? Planet and Organic Valley teamed up to test this theory out. The pilot program began with 20 farms and will be expanding to 100 farms this year. By using near-daily satellite imagery, farmers were able to access reports to have a positive impact both for their cows and their land.

    Tips for Making Annual Forages Work for You
    Webinar Presentation - July 2, 2022
    Center for Agricultural Profitability

    With a majority of Nebraska range and pasture in poor or very poor condition to start off the grazing season, many cattle producers are considering the availability of alternate forage resources. Annual forages planted on cropland offers a potentially valuable feed resource while fulfilling crop rotation needs. In this webinar, Jay Parsons (Agricultural Economics) is joined by Mary Drewnoski (Animal Science) to discuss planting dates, seeding mix, and expected forage production for various scenarios with a focus on conditions this year. Grazing and timing of forage availability are also discussed along with options for obtaining crop insurance through the annual forage insurance plan.

    Integrated Parasite Management Strategies for Sheep Producers
    Join us for a webinar on May 24, 2022 at 7:00 PM CDT.

    Presenter:
    Dr. Andrew Weaver
    Extension Specialist, Small Ruminants
    North Carolina State University

    Host:
    Dr. Jay Parsons, Department of Agricultural Economics
    University of Nebraska-Lincoln

    Description:
    Parasites continue to be a significant challenge for sheep production across the country. The failure of dewormers to adequately treat parasite infections has resulted in the need for alternative parasite management strategies. Unfortunately, there is no single cure. Rather, an integrated approach is needed where multiple strategies are implemented for effective parasite control. These strategies can include environment-based approaches as well as animal-based approaches. In this webinar, parasite biology and host-parasite interactions will be highlighted to provide context for parasite management. Discussion will follow on various parasite management strategies available and how they can be implemented in a sheep production system. A multifaceted approach to parasite management will be most successful in mitigating infection levels and improving sheep performance and well-being.

    3 Financing Methods for Infrastructure Projects

    Published Apr 19 

    3 Financing Methods for Infrastructure ProjectsGood numbers of financing methods that are available for infrastructure projects, and for public-private partnership (PPP) projects in particular. 1#Government FundingThe Government may choose to fund some or all of the capital investment in a project and look to the private sector to bring in expertise and efficiency. This is generally the case in a so-called Design-Build-Operate project where the operator is paid a lump sum for completed stages of construction and will then receive an operating fee to cover operation and maintenance of the project. Another example would be where the Government chooses to source out the civil works for the project through traditional procurement and then brings in a private operator to operate and maintain the facilities or provide the service. Even where Governments prefer that financing is raised by the private sector, increasingly Governments are recognizing that there are some aspects of the project or some risks in a project that may be easier or more sensible for the Government to take...

    Join us for a webinar on Jul 20, 2021 at 7:00 PM CDT.

    The Skills and Principles of Managed Grazing on Improved Pastures

    Presenter: Woody Lane, Ph.D., Lane Livestock Services
    Host:
    Dr. Jay Parsons, Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

    Description:
    Let's say you have a flock of 125 ewes in early lactation, all raising twins. You want to move them into a 3-acre field of improved fast-growing pasture. Question: How long can your flock graze in that field? Or a similar question: How many acres do you need to graze those sheep for 5 days? Or another question: How many inches of grass will a ewe eat each day to meet her nutrient requirements?

    This webinar will give answers to these questions and more. We'll focus on "Managed Grazing" -- the knowledge of how forages grow combined with the skills of moving sheep, estimating intake, balancing the needs of forages and sheep, and managing pastures by grazing sheep in sustainable and efficient ways. We'll describe how to decide when to open the gate, when to move sheep off the paddock, and practical tips about stocking density, electric fences, weed control, gate latches, the grazing wedge, and a new way of describing grazing systems. Basically, we'll describe how to manage improved pastures to capture sunlight efficiently and profitably. Join us for a very interesting session.

    This webinar is made possible with funding support from the American Sheep Industry Association.

    3 Financing Methods for Infrastructure Projects

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published Apr 19 

    3 Financing Methods for Infrastructure ProjectsGood numbers of financing methods that are available for infrastructure projects, and for public-private partnership (PPP) projects in particular. 1#Government FundingThe Government may choose to fund some or all of the capital investment in a project and look to the private sector to bring in expertise and efficiency. This is generally the case in a so-called Design-Build-Operate project where the operator is paid a lump sum for completed stages of construction and will then receive an operating fee to cover operation and maintenance of the project. Another example would be where the Government chooses to source out the civil works for the project through traditional procurement and then brings in a private operator to operate and maintain the facilities or provide the service. Even where Governments prefer that financing is raised by the private sector, increasingly Governments are recognizing that there are some aspects of the project or some risks in a project that may be easier or more sensible for the Government to take...

    Could satellite technology be used to efficiently measure pasture health on a dairy? Planet and Organic Valley teamed up to test this theory out. The pilot program began with 20 farms and will be expanding to 100 farms this year. By using near-daily satellite imagery, farmers were able to access reports to have a positive impact both for their cows and their land.
