Frontier Cooperative invites you to a retirement party in honor of Randy Robeson! The party will be held at the Starlight Event Center, 2045 Co Rd K, Wahoo, NE. It’s on September 7th from 6pm to midnight. Hope to see you there!
Husker Harvest Days is a place to find useful tips, strategies and tools to take home to your operation — things that you can control, and hopefully improve in a profitable way.
Brand new for HHD this year is the International Visitors Center, which is intended to foster connections between U.S. businesses and international customers and partners, and to showcase Nebraska’s resources and products to foreign companies.
However, it isn’t limited to large companies — if you’re a small Nebraska business owner, this is a prime opportunity to learn about the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s State Trade and Expansion Program, and how the program can help defray the costs of marketing internationally.
This year, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is emphasizing strategies for staying strong in the wake of extremes — including extreme weather and stress — at the Husker Red Building on Lot 827 on Eighth Street in the southeast quadrant of the exhibit field. Nebraska Extension faculty will discuss weather readiness, stress management, ag economics, ag leadership, beef and crop production, irrigation efficiency, horticulture, and careers in agriculture. So, if you’ve got a question on any of these topics, bring it with you — there’s likely an expert who can provide some insight.
This year, HHD has split up field demonstrations to give two chances to see new combines in the field, with demonstrations running once in the morning and again in the afternoon. There will be one pass of each combine in the morning, starting at 10:30 a.m., and again in the afternoon, starting at 1 p.m. — rather than two passes in the morning, as in previous years. This way, if you can’t make it to one demonstration, you can still catch a demo later or earlier on in the day.
More details and the full exhibitor list can be found at www.huskerharvestdays.com.
Hours are Tues Sept 10 and Wed Sept 11 – 8am to 5pm, and Thursday Sept 12 8am to 4pm.
It’s been a rough year for agriculture — there’s no way around it. If you’re feeling the crunch this season, whether because of economics, weather extremes or stress, we hope there’s something at HHD you can bring home to help improve your ranch or farming operation.
