CONCORD – Late last month, the Haskell Ag Lab Sciences and Ag Field Day drew over 350 people as the northeast Nebraska location will be hosting another event in early August.

According to a release from Nebraska Extension, the event was held on June 30 which featured activities for all ages.

Some of the activities included Northeast Arboretum Tour, Archery demonstration and shooting sports trailer, Mobile Beef Lab, Science Literacy and Maker Space trailers, Northeast Power demonstrations, educational presentations on various topics by University of Nebraska-Lincoln personnel and vendors, food demonstrations, health screenings, youth farm safety, Backyard Farmer panel, grain marketing, pesticide safety and many other activities. It was a fun-filled and educational day for everyone.

Now, both the Nebraska Extension and South Dakota State University Extension will be hosting the 2021 Forage Field Day. This program will be held in separate locations for producer convenience.

The first will be at the Southeast Research Farm in Beresford, South Dakota on Wednesday, August 4 while the Haskell Research Lab in Concord, Nebraska will be the host site on Thursday, August 5. Cost to register is $30 which includes lunch and those interested can sign-up by Wednesday, July 28 for either field day at events.unl.edu/extension/upcoming or call 402-254-6821.

The morning will begin at 9:30 a.m. with registration and last through an option research farm tour at 4:30 p.m.

Also, plan on joining the Haskell Ag Lab on the second Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. for ‘Coffee and Conversations’. The group will offer coffee and snacks with the next event scheduled for Tuesday, August 10. Make sure to bring your questions and ideas for the programs.
