Look for the Nebraska Farmer Hospitality Tent at Husker Harvest Days, located at Central Avenue and Main Street. The tent features exhibits and information on health and safety, nutrition, and the environmental and lifestyle factors affecting the well-being of farmers and ranchers. Other exhibits include:

Farm Next. Visit with new innovators in agriculture as a part of the Farm Next program. This popular TV series, brought to you by Farm Progress and Pivot Bio, will be available live at the Hospitality Tent.

Nebraska Industry Spotlight. Come see some of your favorite Nebraska-based companies on stage at Husker Harvest Days. Learn more about the valuable services they offer, their unique company histories and their various products.

Insight on marketing. Farm Futures market analysts Jacqueline Holland and Ben Potter will share insight into what led to a wild marketing year so far in 2022. They will look at:

  • supply-and-demand fundamentals shaping grain prices

  • weather challenges

  • production expectations

  • input costs

  • farmland value trends

  • what to expect in 2023

While you are there, get more details about the 2023 Farm Futures Business Summit, where you can really boost your marketing skills with this annual seminar to be presented in January by Farm Futures and a host of industry experts.

Succession planning. There’s a saying that farmers never retire; they just tire. Perhaps that’s the case for many farmers and ranchers working late into their lives on their operations, which they’ve built up over the years. And so, retiring or handing over the operation to the next generation is the last thing they want to think about.

“More often than not, planning is deferred until some critical point,” says Allan Vyhnalek, University of Nebraska Extension educator and farm transition specialist.

“If there’s a sudden death, then your back is against the wall, and you could make bad decisions because of stress. It’s important to make sure we think about this while everything is going well, instead of during a crisis,” he explains.

Vyhnalek will be offering advice on ranch succession and transition planning during daily sessions, helping you dig into topics related to passing down the farm.

Nebraska Farmer Hour. Nebraska Farmer Editor Curt Arens will be joined by the Farm Progress New Products Team on Sept. 13 to share a few of their favorite equipment and technology finds from this year’s show. FFA members will join Arens on stage Sept. 14, as part of the Nebraska Farmer Hour.
