Farm and ranch management is an important factor in the sustainability of both the farm and ranch business and the ability of the family to live the life they desire. This blog will periodically cover subjects of interest to SW Nebraska agriculture. Subjects will include topics like the 2014 Farm Bill, crop insurance, crop marketing, dairy economics and markets, ag related public policy and farm and ranch production economics.
I am a Nebraska Extension Educator delivering farm management education to Southwest and Western Nebraska. I also have a strong interest in dairy and livestock economics. I have been working in this area for over 20 years.
Occasionally you will see a picture of Minneapolis Moline machinery. I used some in my farming career which ended about 20 years ago.
