BeefWatch Podcast

The BeefWatch Podcast provides timely information to help beef cattle producers improve the sustainability and profitability of their operations.

BeefWatch is provided by the Nebraska Extension Beef Systems team and is the audio companion to the UNL BeefWatch Newsletter.

Ranchers often have limited time to read, but have time in the pickup or tractor cab when they can listen. The BeefWatch Podcast brings you the information you need in a format you can use.

Tractor Safety Training

      Nebraska Extension Tractor Safety/Hazardous Occupations Courses will be offered at seven locations in Nebraska during May and June.  Any 14 or 15-year-old teen that plans to work for someone other than his/her parents should plan to attend.  Federal law prohibits youth under 16 years of age from working on a farm for anyone other than their parents or guardian.   Certification through the course grants an exemption to the law allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to drive a tractor and to do field work with mechanized equipment.  Classes consist of two days of instruction plus homework assignments. Classes are from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day. The dates for the class in Valentine at the Cherry County Fairgrounds are June 1 and 2.  Pre-registration is needed to the Extension Office by May 26.  The $60 course fee includes educational materials, testing, supplies, lunches and breaks.  For more information or registration forms, contact the Nebraska Extension-Cherry County office at 402-376-1850 or jjenkins2@unl.edu.  The registration form may be filled in and printed from this link.
