Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent Nebraska's economy could be hurt if Congress continues to delay passage of a farm bill, said Tim Scheer of St. Paul, chairman of the Nebraska Corn Board. Strong agricultural prices have helped the state’s economy grow and kept the unemployment rate down. Nebraska has the second lowest unemployment rate in the country behind North Dakota. Last year the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that cash receipts from Nebraska’s principal crops were $13.566 billion in 2012, down from 2011’s $13.939 billion. Cash receipts from cattle and calves in Nebraska in 2012 totaled $10.36 billion, up from 2011’s $8.6 billion.

Scheer said the progress achieved and contributions that agriculture has made in the past decade are at risk if Congress continues to "drag its feet" on passing a new bill. The current Farm Bill, crafted in 2008 and extended last year, is set to expire Sept. 30. If a new bill or an extension of the 2008 bill is not passed, Scheer said, federal price supports will revert to their 1949 levels. If that happens, he said, some farmers, such as those involved in wheat or dairy production, would be big winners, while others, such as soybean farmers, would get "nothing at all because some commodities were added after the 1949 legislation." "Nebraska farmers should not settle for another extension of the 2008 bill," Scheer said. "We need a new farm bill that is in step with

what is happening today and with the future challenges and opportunities for agriculture — and we need it now." Without congressional action, he said, America’s farm policy will become a "patchwork of policy that is unworkable for producers trying to run their businesses and plan for the future." Last week Sen. Mike Johanns, RNeb., said he remained somewhat optimistic that Congress can still get a new farm bill passed if both House and Senate members can get it to a conference committee. "There is just not a lot of time," Johanns said. "Fortunately, this year's fall harvest will be covered under the last Farm Bill, but we will face what is often referred to as the ‘dairy cliff' come January, and farmers planting wheat this fall will

need reauthorized risk management tools." Johanns is a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, which earlier this year passed a farm bill, which was also passed by the full Senate. But while the House Agriculture Committee passed a farm bill, the full House decided to split the nutritional portion off the bill and passed a bill that only addressed farm programs. Last week some Republican House members proposed $40 billion in cuts to food aid programs over 10 years. That is double the House’s earlier proposal and 10 times what Senate Democrats are proposing. House leaders hope to pass a bill reauthorizing food stamps after the August recess. Continued on page 14

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Al Dutcher Report

Allen Dutcher

Week One Forecast, 8/10-8/16: The upper air pattern projected by the most recent weather models continues to focus on the interaction between the Great Lakes upper air trough and the southern Plains upper atmospheric high pressure system. What does this mean for Nebraska? In short, a continuation of a pattern that has been in play for the last month where temperatures warm as the high try to build north, then cool when the upper air trough builds south. This places Nebraska in the confluence zone between the two systems and effectively leaves the region in a northwesterly flow aloft. Therefore, daily chances of precipitation exist throughout the period and identifying the exact location of precipitation events is virtually impossible. Weather models target the Panhandle for isolated thunderstorms on 8/10, eastern Nebraska on 8/11, western Nebraska on 8/12, and southeast Nebraska on 8/13. Weather models indicate that the best odds of widespread moisture will occur during the 8/14-8/15 period. These models develop moisture across northern Nebraska during the second half of 8/14 and push this area through southern Nebraska on 8/15 in response to a cold front that is projected to pass through the

state. Isolated thunderstorms are indicated for the Panhandle on 8/16 as monsoon moisture sweeps eastward from the central Rockies. High Temperatures: 8/10 (77 NE - 85 SW), 8/11 (82 NE - 91 SW), 8/12-8/13 (78 NE - 85 SW), 8/14 (78 NE - 91 SW), 8/15 (77 NE - 88 SW), 8/16 (82 NE - 91 SW). Week Two Forecast, 8/17-8/23: Weather models continue the trend of daily chances of thunderstorms somewhere within the state’s borders as a northwesterly flow aloft allows pieces of energy to move southeastward across the state. During the 8/17-8/18 period, weather models currently indicate that eastern Nebraska will be in the most favorable location to receive isolated to scattered thunderstorm activity as a cold front dives southward out of the Dakotas. Models then shift the activity toward western Nebraska during the 8/19-8/20 period as the surface flow around the upper Midwest high pressure system pushes air westward. This will lead to the creation of upslope flow that is projected to interact with monsoonal moisture being pushed northward from the southwestern United States. On 8/21, models indicate that the southern Plains upper air ridge will push northward and bring an increase in temperatures and dew points. As the edge of this ridge pushes north, thunderstorms are projected to develop across western Nebraska during the afternoon of 8/21 and clear eastern Nebraska during the overnight hours. Isolated thunderstorms are possible across eastern Nebraska during the afternoon hours of 8/22, but most of the state is projected to remain dry through 8/23. High Temperatures: 8/17 (82 NE - 91 SW), 8/18 (77 NE 87 SW), 8/19 (73 NE - 80 SW), 8/20 (74 NE - 91 SW), 8/21 (77 NE - 91 SW), 8/22-8/23 (85 NE - 94 SW)

Nebraska Weather and Crops LINCOLN — For the week ending August 4, 2013, a large portion of the state received an inch or more of precipitation which was accompanied by below normal temperatures, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Portions of the extreme southeast saw 3 or more inches while southern Panhandle counties were mostly dry. As a result, stress was reduced on growing crops with pollination coming to a close on corn and pod development active on soybeans. Additionally, many pastures in southwestern and south central areas remain poor with some cattle sales being reported. Wheat harvest was winding down with most fields left to cut located in northern Panhandle counties. Statewide, producers had 4.7 days suitable for fieldwork. Topsoil moisture supplies rated 15 percent very short, 34 short, 49 adequate, and 2 surplus. Statewide, subsoil moisture supplies rated 27 percent very short, 43 short, 30 adequate, and 0 surplus. Field Crops Report: All corn condition rated 4 percent very poor, 7 poor, 21 fair, 48 good, and 20 excellent. Irrigated corn conditions rated 85 percent good or excellent, compared to 76 average. Dryland corn conditions rated 43 percent good or excellent, compared to 62 average. Corn silking was 93 percent complete, behind 99 last year but near 95 average. Corn in dough was

14 percent, behind 71 last year and 37 average. Soybean conditions rated 2 percent very poor, 5 poor, 24 fair, 57 good, and 12 excellent. Ninety-one percent of the crop was blooming, near 94 last year and 90 average. Fifty percent of the crop was setting pods, behind 59 last year but near 51 average. Sorghum conditions rated 6 percent very poor, 15 poor, 28 fair, 40 good, and 11 excellent. Sorghum heading was 34 percent, behind 56 last year and 41 average. Wheat harvested was 93 percent, behind 100 last year and 97 average. Oats harvested were 85 percent, behind last year’s 99 and near 88 average. Dry bean conditions rated 0 percent very poor, 3 poor, 16 fair, 69 good, and 12 excellent. Dry beans blooming were 84 percent, near 83 last year and 84 average. Thirty-nine percent of the crop was setting pods, near 40 last year and 40 average. Alfalfa conditions were 6 percent very poor, 9 poor, 31 fair, 48 good, and 6 excellent. Alfalfa second cutting was 91 percent complete, behind last year’s 99 and 95 average. Third cutting was 17 percent complete, behind 76 last year and 35 average. Livestock, Pasture and Range Report: Stock water supplies rated 6 percent very short, 19 short, 75 adequate, and 0 surplus. Pasture and range condition was 15 percent very poor, 22 poor, 37 fair, 25 good, and 1 excellent.

Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Country Living

Laundry Laments Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Colfax County Laundry is a fact of life. If we want clean clothes, laundry needs to be done. It can be frustrating, though, to find that the clothes did not become clean, they dye bled, a residue remains, or a stain has appeared. Poor Cleaning Poor cleaning is often a cumulative effect over time and for a variety of reasons. Clothes often turn gray or have a dingy look. One of the possible causes of poor cleaning is not using hot enough water. Some clothes cannot be machine washed in hot or even warm water. The care level for such clothes needs to be followed. For clothes that can be washed in hot water, use hot water at least every few washings of a garment to help eliminate the dingy look. When adjusting your hot water heater, be aware of the fact that the hot water will also be used in faucets, showers and bathtubs. Too high of a temperature can scald the user, particularly children. Using an incorrect amount of detergent can result in poor cleaning. The amount of detergent used is determined by the size of the laundry load, the degree of soil and the hardness of the water. Obviously, larger loads require more detergent. Heavily soiled items require more detergent. More detergent is needed if the water is harder than ten grains per gallon. Another culprit is using an inexpensive detergent in hard water. These products contain only sodium carbonate. Look for products that contain both sodium carbonate and aluminosilicates. This combination does a better job of softening the water. In general, use a liquid detergent rather than a powdered detergent if you have hard water or choose to wash in cold water. The liquid detergent mixes better with the hard and/or cold water. Adding the detergent before clothing is

put in the washer will also help the detergent mix with water. Overloading a washing machine can result in poor cleaning. Clothes need to circulate freely in the water and detergent. I remember my years at college in the laundry room of the dorm. It was very common to see students stuff the washing machine full of clothes to save a couple of quarters. I'm sure that it is still being done. If an item is stained or heavily soiled, failing to soak or pre-treat the item before washing may result in poor cleaning. Dye Transfer Color from one garment may bleed or transfer onto other garments. This is caused by the dye not being set properly by the manufacturer. Once dye has transferred, it may be impossible to remove. If a dye transfer occurs, wash the garment again with an oxygen bleach added to the water and detergent. If safe for the fabric, use chlorine bleach. Chlorine bleach is harsher than oxygen bleach. Occasionally, I get questions about home remedies for setting dye. Extensive research was conducted to see if either vinegar or salt water can be used to set dyes. The research revealed that sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. In other words, it's not reliable. It won't hurt anything but it may or may not work. Stains After Washing Brown or reddish stains that appeared after washing usually indicate that iron or manganese is in the water supply. Avoid using chlorine bleach if iron or manganese is present. There are products on the market that can remove rust stains from clothing. Read the label. Liquid fabric softener may leave stains if the fabric softener is not dispensed properly Some stains may not appear before a garment is washed but instead show up after it is washed. This is a common occurrence with hair care products, particularly hair spray.

Tomato Plants Not Setting Fruit Noel Mues, Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Furnas County Questions and calls come in every year about tomatoes that look great and flower, but do not set fruit. This is not caused by a disease or an insect. Most likely, you can blame the problem on Mother Nature. Blossom drop is a common tomato problem that is caused by stress or less-than-optimal growing conditions. Normally, a tomato blossom is pollinated and then fruit develops. This is called “setting fruit.” But sometimes, a healthy tomato plant flowers, its blossoms drop, and no fruit develops. This is called “blossom drop.” It's a result of plant stress or poor pollination. First, here’s a brief horticultural lesson. Tomatoes are self-pollinating, meaning they have flowers that contain both the male and female parts, so more than one plant is not needed for reproduction. The pollen falls within the flower to pollinate itself. That doesn’t mean insects and wind aren’t important, though. They can help pollinate self-pollinating plants; for example, when bees light on the yellow flowers, the buzzing of their wings helps to shake the pollen off into the flower. All of this can be perfect and the flower can still fail to set fruit. There are at least five conditions that can lead to blossom drop: -- Extreme temperatures - Cool nights (consistently below 55ºF) or hot spells (days consistently about 90ºF and nights consistently above 75ºF) force the tomato plant to abandon fruit production and focus merely on surviving. Tomatoes’ optimum daytime temperature range for setting fruit is between 70º-85ºF. -- Poor pollination - When temperatures are too hot or too cold, insects aren’t active in the garden. Not as many blossoms are pollinated. Along the same lines, without proper humidity (40-70 percent), pollen has difficulty releasing or sticking. -- Stress - Tomatoes have deep root systems. Shallow watering develops shallow root systems, which can weaken tomato plants.

-- Improper fertilizing - Tomatoes are heavy feeders. Nitrogen (represented proportionally by the first number in a fertilizer’s three-number series) encourages leaf growth. Too much nitrogen-rich fertilizer, without accompanying phosphorus and potassium, can mean plants develop more leaves than fruit. -- Too many blossoms - When a healthy tomato plant has many blossoms, they compete for food. Some won’t survive. While you cannot change temperature or humidity, there are a few steps you can take to help some tomato flowers to set fruit: -- Combat extreme temperatures. Don’t plant tomatoes too early in the season. Also, choose types of tomatoes that are most appropriate for your climate. In cooler areas, plant early varieties which are more tolerant of cold nights. In southern regions, plant heat-tolerant varieties, which are more accustomed to setting fruit when the thermometer stretches upward. -- Combat pollination problems. When blossoms emerge, mimic the work of wind and insects by gently shaking plants to spread pollen. You can also help pollination by planting flowers that attract insects among tomatoes. In dry areas, help pollen stick by misting tomato plants. -- Combat water stress. Make sure tomato plants get 1-3 inches of water a week (including rain). Avoid watering daily, but rather water a couple of times a week deeply to allow root systems to grow strong. -- Combat improper fertilization. Feed tomato plants with a balanced fertilizer or tomato fertilizer every 3-4 weeks. Avoid excess nitrogen (in proportion to other nutrients). -- Combat too many blossoms? Some gardeners go to the extreme of pinching off blossoms on plants with excess flowers. But when there are plenty of blossoms, usually the “survival of the fittest” rule prevails. Count your blossom blessings and let fruit develop as it will.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • A Sustainable Life by Lee Pitts

Scientists say that man is superior to all other forms of life because we have the ability to reason. Supposedly we are rational and animals aren’t. Anybody who has watched our Congress in action or a Border Collie herding sheep might think the opposite is more accurate. No, the real difference between people and animals is that we humans are never satisfied. We are all trying desperately to keep up with the Joneses, who are trying desperately to keep up with us, while the cows are chewing their cud, the horses are licking their lips and the dogs are all taking a nap. Take my mechanic buddy, for instance. Ten years ago he was happy as a hog in mud. He was doing what he loved, working on cars while his wife did the books. They had a good business, a happy marriage and three great kids who they spent a lot of time with. But he wanted more. So, now he owns five shops, pays child support, sees his kids on weekends and is buried in paper work and employee problems. And he never gets to do what he really loves, which is getting his hands greasy working on cars. I went to college with a fellow who loved to farm. For him there was nothing better than the feel of soil or a tractor seat. But he wasn’t satisfied either and felt he had to get bigger, so now he spends most of his time pushing paper, arguing with bureaucrats and trying to justify his existence. He’s paying other people to do

what he loved to do and he recently told me, “It’s just not fun any more.” Another friend used to own a small children’s store. It was a great little store and people came from miles around because of her unique stock and friendly service. She figured that if a little was good then a lot must be better so she rented a space that was twice as big, had to fill it with more generic clothing, and was out of business within a year. It’s a recurring theme. If we have one million we want two. If we have a fishing boat we want a yacht. If we own one home we want a second, despite a lack of evidence that the man who owns ten homes, or ten horses for that matter, is any happier than the man who owns one. In our small town there was a builder who built the best three bedroom, two bath, family homes around. He built them one at a time and had buyers waiting in line, even in bad times. He worked hard, lived well, drove a new pickup and life was good. Then he decided he needed to “take the next step.” So, he picked a bad time to start six minimansions on spec. It bankrupted him and today he’s driving a bread delivery truck. Another rancher friend raised the best kids, cows and hay on his own small place. It was what the environmentalists call “sustainable.” But he too wanted more so he borrowed money from the bank to expand to 500 cows. Now he’s sitting in a

pickup instead of a saddle and getting plenty of windshield time as he reacts to disasters on his many far-flung leases. He admitted to me that he made more money and was much happier before, but he can’t quit now because he’s working for the banker. I too was once almost seduced into making something of myself. We all want to leave our mark on this world and for me it was the allure of being a best-selling author, in the image of Erma Bombeck, Lewis Grizzard or Garrison Keillor. I’ll admit I was tempted to sign my life away on a contract to a New York publisher. Now, the reason I am a writer in the first place is because I love to write. I did it even when no one was paying me to do it. But as it was explained to me by the publisher, in order to be a writer I had to travel all over the country to do book signings, marketing myself. This meant that I would spend most of my time doing something I hate, which is being away from home and my wife, while traveling to big cities which literally make me ill. All this instead of doing what I love, which is writing something other than my autograph over and over again. Luckily, I discovered a long time ago that I was infinitely happier having less and that I was very good, some might say exceptional, at being a nobody.

Facing Reality on the President’s Climate Change Plan by Senator Deb Fischer

President Obama delivered a speech on climate change during which he announced his plans to increase regulations and impose a costly national tax on affordable energy sources. He intends to enact this proposal through executive action, avoiding Congress and the citizens they represent. Specifically, the president will authorize the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue new carbon emission standards for existing power plants. While the president touted his plan as an effort to “do more” to combat climate change, it will actually do more to raise energy costs than reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These burdensome new requirements placed on businesses will increase fuel and electricity prices and kill jobs across the country. Hardworking Americans—who will foot the bill when their energy and electricity bills go up—deserve to know exactly how much this new climate change policy will cost. I agree it is important to examine the science surrounding climate change. I also believe before a problem can be solved, we must understand the nature of the problem itself. While some blame emissions of carbon dioxide for all kinds of harm— including extreme weather—there are various views even within the scientific community. Earth scientist and Chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Dr. Allison Macfarlane—appointed by President Obama—was

asked at a hearing earlier this year what the NRC was doing to prepare for “extreme weather.” She responded, “I would not call these events extreme. I would call them normal. They may be extreme because we have very limited experience on this earth with them, but they are normal events.” The president’s plan also disregards the fact that the United States is not the primary global emitter of greenhouse gases. The biggest sources are China and India, two of our top economic competitors. Moreover, America’s share of global greenhouse gas emissions has actually been declining for nearly a decade—from 25 percent in 2000 to 19 percent in 2008. Meanwhile, China’s emissions have skyrocketed, increasing by 173 percent from 1998 to 2011, and show no signs of slowing down. This reality raises the question of whether the environmental benefits of the President’s plan are even discernible and importantly, whether they will be worth harming our country’s economy at a time when so many Americans and middle class families are living paycheck to paycheck. President Obama’s order to the EPA to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants would most adversely impact coal-fired plants. America has more than 1,000 coal-fired generators at nearly 600 plant locations that generate 40 percent of America’s affordable, reliable energy.

In Nebraska, nearly two-thirds of our state’s electricity is produced from coal-fired plants, which are an integral part of our state’s public power system. Under the president’s plan, Nebraska’s primary source of electricity would be disproportionately penalized, resulting in increased compliance costs on utilities and rising energy prices for Nebraska families and businesses. Members of Congress have an important responsibility to exercise oversight of federal policy decisions impacting their constituents. That is why I am so troubled by the president’s call for unilateral, executive action authorizing EPA to implement these new carbon emission standards without Congressional approval. I co-sponsored legislation that would require the president to submit his new energy tax proposal for a vote in Congress, rather than enacting it through executive fiat. The American people have a right to have their voices heard, and that means having their elected representatives weigh in. Instead of promoting a regulatory regime that will raise energy prices, kill jobs, and hurt our economy, the president should be putting forth energy proposals that face reality. It’s time to move toward the “all of the above” energy strategy the American people were promised and pursue current opportunities we have here at home to enhance our energy supply and lower prices.

Preventing Government Abuse and Overreach by Congressman Adrian Smith Scottsbluff Office 416 Valley View Drive, Suite 600 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Phone: (308) 633-6333 Fax: (308) 633-6335

The American people’s confidence in the federal government has never been lower – with good reason. Recent revelations of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting conservative groups, the disastrous and ongoing implementation of a flawed health care law, lavish spending at government conferences, and federal agencies which regularly overreach their authority are all a reflection of bureaucracy out of touch with the American people. This week, the House of Representatives took steps to rein in out-ofcontrol government, to prevent abuse, and to hold agencies accountable for their actions. The Obama Administration has dismissed concerns about the IRS targeting of conservative groups as “bad customer service” or “poor performance.” The President described these concerns as “phony.” The American people know better. Given the immense power of the agency and the sensitivity of the information they collect, we have an obligation to fully investigate these allegations, and hold accountable any responsible parties. Adding to the concern, the IRS will be the chief enforcer of the many new health care mandates set to be implemented during the next year. This week, I participated in a Committee on Ways and Means hearing on the status of implementing the health

Grand Island Office 1811 West Second Street, Suite 105 Grand Island, NE68803 Phone: (308) 384-3900 Fax: (308) 384-3902

care law with Daniel Werfel, the acting head of the IRS. I asked Commissioner Werfel if he was confident the personal taxpayer information to be collected by the agency would be secure. He claimed the information will be safe, even though he also admitted many of the security lapses and releases of information at question have yet to be resolved. The Commissioner’s answers to our questions did nothing to improve confidence the IRS is prepared to implement and enforce this enormous new law. The inappropriateness of giving the agency more authority and access to personal information is why the House passed H.R. 2009, the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act on Friday. This legislation would prevent the agency from implementing any portion of the president’s health care law. The House passed several other bills this week to help prevent abuse, increase transparency, and restore trust in the federal government. Among other reforms, the bills we passed this week would ensure citizens have the right to record their meetings and telephone exchanges with federal regulatory officials would allow agencies to place high-level employees on unpaid leave when they are under investigation for serious offenses and would lower the amount of bonuses and the number of senior employees eligible

Washington Office 503 Cannon House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 Phone: (202) 225-6435 Fax: (202) 225-0207

to receive them. We also passed bills which would stop abuse of agency conferences through increased transparency and accountability, and in the case of the IRS, a moratorium. Perhaps the most important reform passed by the House this week was H.R. 367, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act. For too long, Congress has allowed administrations of both parties to enact regulations at great costs to the American people with little oversight. This pattern has led to agencies regularly overreaching their authority, which undermines the constitutional separation of powers. The REINS Act would allow Congress to vote on the most expensive new rules before they are enforced on hardworking families and small businesses. This commonsense reform would help restore the balance of power in Washington and return responsibility for the legislative process to Congress. All of these reforms would require approval by the Senate and the president before they could become law. However, we will not be deterred from seeking accountability and improvement in the federal government, because the American people are demanding we do better.

Why a New “Sequester” is on the Horizon by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

Earlier this year, the Obama Administration told Nebraskans to saddle up and expect a bumpy ride, as automatic spending cuts in federal government would affect services across the country. We were warned that federal meat inspectors would be furloughed, slowing production and distorting prices. Everything from education programs to air travel would also be impacted as across-the-board spending cuts, known as sequestration, kicked in to offset government spending beyond caps set by Congress just two years ago. And we were all looking forward to a day when sequestration was behind us. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats seem to have forgotten these warnings because they are now all but ensuring a second act later this year. The Democrat-controlled Senate Appropriations Committee, which holds the power to tighten the purse strings and govern federal outlays, is spending $91 billion above and beyond legal limits agreed to by both parties in Congress and the president in the Budget Control Act (BCA). This irresponsible behavior sends us careening toward a new round of

Scottsbluff Office: 115 Railway Street, Suite C102 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Tel: (308) 632-6032 Fax: (308) 632-6295

sequester cuts and fails to fulfill our obligation to responsibly allocate taxpayer dollars, opting instead to keep spending beyond our means. These aren’t just arbitrary caps. They are the law that all but two of the 16 Democrats on the powerful committee voted for in 2011. Under the law, if the government spends more than the allotted limits set forth in the BCA, automatic government-wide spending cuts would be triggered, blindly trimming nearly every government account by the same margin without regard for the services effected. Yet, these committee members in the majority party are ignoring the law they supported, willfully blowing the budget caps. Less than one year ago, Majority Leader Harry Reid said, “We passed the Budget Control Act … We’ve agreed to all those numbers. They’re done. They’re agreed to.” Despite this “agreement,” the Senate’s Democrat majority has decided to forego the only responsible way to “turn off the sequester,” which would require tough choices and prioritizing needed spending cuts.

Instead, they decided not to seize this opportunity to correct government spending, putting us on a path for another round of the very cuts the president spent much of this year railing against. The administration and its allies are sure to renew those dire warnings about severe sequestration cuts looming over their agencies. And when they do, they’ll know just who is responsible. It is clear that dealing with our fiscal situation in government is not going to be easy or enjoyable. We all knew that when we passed the Budget Control Act. But it was, and still is, an important step toward getting our spending under control. And it will only work if lawmakers play by the rules we all agreed to. President Obama has called on Congress to use a scalpel rather than an ax to address government spending. That’s exactly what my Republican colleagues and I advocated as members of the Appropriations Committee. I stand ready to work with my colleagues on either side of the aisle to find a responsible path forward to fund government services. It’s not too late, but time is running out.

Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent The 15th annual Soybean Management Field Days Aug. 13-16 will focus on staying competitive in a global marketplace, increasing profits and meeting the world’s growing food and energy needs right here in Nebraska. The field days are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board in partnership with University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in the university’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and are funded through soybean checkoff dollars. The field days will offer producers unbiased and research-based information to improve their soybean profitability. The event consists of four stops across the state, each with replicated research/demonstration plots, lunch and time for questions. Producers can obtain ideas and insight about the challenges they face in producing a quality crop at a profitable price in today’s global economy. Topics include adjuvants and water quality, fungicide and insecticide input (yield effects and risks), soybean nutrients and micronutrients, row spacing, irrigation management and the Nebraska soybean checkoff investment. The field days begin with 9 a.m. registration and conclude at 2:30 p.m. Free registration is available the day of the event.

Burwell Rises to the Occasion for Nebraska's Big Rodeo Joe Duggan, The Omaha World-Herald BURWELL — The sun sets over the Sandhills as a cowboy slips off his horse and onto the horns of a runaway steer, raising dust in the arena and applause in the stands. Gerald Burns, one of several thousand fans who have made their way to Burwell for Nebraska's Big Rodeo, watches the action from under the brim of a cowboy hat. It's a view the retired school administrator from Atkinson has experienced for nearly all of his 70 summers. His grandparents first brought him to the Burwell rodeo long before he could hook a boot into a stirrup. On this recent night, he and his wife, Sally, have brought a pair of grandchildren along. For Burns and many others like him, the Burwell rodeo is as much about family tradition as riding, roping and rhinestones. There's never a discussion about whether they're going to attend. "I can't remember when I missed it," he said. In Nebraska, rodeos are as commonplace as sweet corn stands. They take place in small corrals where youngsters hone their skills as well as in urban arenas with all the glitz and volume of a Toby Keith concert. In Burwell, putting on the rodeo requires months of planning and help from dozens of volunteers. The July 24-27 event drew about 10,000 spectators and 425 competitors to the central Nebraska community of 1,210. It not only boosted the local economy, it showcased the town, brought people together and filled the stockade with pride to last until the next goround. "If we ever lose the rodeo, we'd lose our identity," said Burwell Mayor Chuck Cone.

That's why the Burwell rodeo has outlived nearly anyone who would remember when it was first held in 1921. It was born long before then, on cattle ranches in grass-covered hills that surround the town. Out there, ranchers, their children and their hired hands have long employed the skills that take center stage at the rodeo, whether roping a calf, staying on a bucking horse or controlling one well enough to pull a U-turn at full gallop. The popularity of the Burwell rodeo grew rapidly in an era when maintaining a social network required a trip to town. Organizers ran it in conjuction with the Garfield County Fair, but it wasn't long before more people came to see bull riders than blue ribbons. World War II put the event on hold for three years, but when it returned, so did the crowds. At its peak in the late 1940s and early 1950s, more than 75,000 people would pour into Burwell, said Jim Svoboda of Ord, a rodeo photographer who has co-written a history of the rodeo. Svoboda, who travels 50,000 miles a year to photograph the best of the nation's 700 professional rodeos, said Burwell's attendance nowadays makes it a medium-size event. But its outdoor setting in true ranch country, for events such as chuck wagon races and wild horse races on a half-mile oval track, help Burwell stand out. "Carrying on the Wild West is what it's doing," Svoboda said. Another signature of Burwell is the Grand Entry, which kicked off the event each of its four nights. At the July 26 performance, a color guard led the entry followed by a procession on horseback that included rodeo board members, sponsors and dignitaries, all in sharp Western shirts and

cowboy hats. Miss Burwell Rodeo, Olivia Hunsperger, rode in with the American flag on a pole tight against her saddle. It was hats over hearts for the national anthem as her horse sprinted around the arena with the flag stretched out in full display. Over the next two hours, competitors from Nebraska, Missouri, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas worked to beat the clock or wait it out. Because the Burwell rodeo is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the event always draws top pros along with semi-pro riders looking to gain experience. Rodeo organizers carefully orchestrate the evening so there is little down time between events. "This is more than a rodeo, it's a show," said Roger Mayhood of Phoenix, who wanted to experience a slice of Nebraska while visiting relatives. Behind the show, however, is a lot of hard work and planning. A board of volunteers works just about year-round to pull it off, said Lee Jeffres, the board president. The rodeo also relies on help from about 70 additional volunteers. "We're pretty proud of it," he said. "The community comes together to put it on." Andy Burelle of Ardmore, Okla., travels across the country to work rodeos as a professional bullfighter. Some would call him a rodeo clown, but when you put yourself between a dazed cowboy and a 2,000-pound animal, you call yourself whatever you want. Burelle called Nebraska's Big Rodeo a step back in time. "It's a different feel," he said. "This is one of the four or five in the country you really want to hit, because you get to see what rodeo was, and still is, especially in a small town."

Corn trade has continued to grind sideways lower this week. For the week heading into Thursday September is 8 lower, while December is 5 lower. December futures printed new lows for the move down to $4.55. We remain oversold but fund short covering (short profit taking now) is still waiting for a trigger. December corn has chart support at $4.50 with resistance at $4.69, which is the 10-day moving average. Weather has been more of the same with moisture around as a whole, below normal temperatures but the driest areas have been disappointed with the moisture. The weekly ethanol production was higher at 853,000 barrel, and stocks were up 16.8 million barrels. Margins have remained fairly positive in the near term. Crude has reversed from $108 area but is still trading over $105. The weekly export sales were soft, with 290,000 metric tons of old crop, and 220,000 metric tons of new crop. Export inspections on Monday were neutral to negative at 15.1 million bushels. Crop conditions were reported at 64% good to excellent, up 1% on the week and silking progress was at 86%, the crop remains one to two weeks behind the average. Cool conditions should slow maturity, with the potential for frost lurking in the background, but the market concern is slipping. Private crop estimates have been in the 14 billion bushel range ahead of Monday’s report, with the carryout moving to 2 billion plus. Our thought is the only thing the USDA could do next Monday is raise production and carryover or leave items unchanged another month. There may be some brief short profit taking before or after the report to give us a light bump, but otherwise the market will be looking for a bottom during the normal mid to late harvest time frame unless an early frost occurs. Hedgers call with questions.

Wheat trade has been actively sideways to lower this week. For the week the September contracts are 17 lower in Chicago, KC is down 8 and Minneapolis is down 5 cents. The September Chicago contract has found resistance at the $6.64 20-day moving average, and after failing they put in at fresh low at $6.39. Export news will need to remain solid to find some more short covering, and the US is losing Mediterranean business to Black Sea origin wheat right now. The weekly export sales were ok at 725,600 metric tons. Export inspections were 25.8 million metric tons. Winter wheat crop harvest has moved to 87% complete, with the Northwest left spring wheat ratings were unchanged at 68% good to excellent, and yield estimates remain high. There are some dry spots out there though. Wheat feeding should tail off with corn harvest starting in the South. Egypt bought significant amounts of Black Sea wheat, and Brazil is expected to remain around the market. Wheat is overdue for a short covering bounce, but some fresh supportive news may be needed to get it stared. The WASDE report is expected to keep things fairly steady for the month. The tighter carryover seen last month did help curb the downside momentum in wheat, but the bull argument apparently needs another friendly report versus expectations to get the job done. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has ground lower as well this week, despite good new crop export business. For the week, November beans are 16 lower. On the chart, November has support at $11.60, with resistance at $11.85 then $12.00. Basis has bounced back a little bit in the near term. The weekly export sales were mixed at 79,400 metric tons of old crop, 1.02 million of new, 66,700 of old crop meal, 68,900 of new crop meal, and 2,500 of oil. Export inspections were 1.4 million bushels. Crop conditions were 1% better at 64% good to excellent, and blooming was at 79%, remaining well behind normal. Soybeans were rated as setting pods at 39% clip. Chart momentum has turned lower for now, but will need to get past $11.50 to trigger a bigger break. On Monday the USDA will release the monthly WASDE report, which is expected to retain elevated yield potential and carryouts, private forecasters have been in the 3.1-3.3 billion bushel range for production ahead of the report. There will also be a resurvey of acres release on Monday as well. Crop ratings could be up another 1% on Monday and as long as temperatures stay mild and scattered timely rains occur we can add yield for another month, so 44 bpa is not off the table.

Nebraska Farm & Ranch

Drought Cost Nebraska Farmers Billions Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent Last year’s drought didn’t halt the rise in Nebraska farm real estate values, but the drought brought a huge cost to farmers and ranchers as Nebraska farm and ranch production expenditures, at $21.95 billion, were up 27 percent in 2013 compared to 2012, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. The impact of the drought could be seen as livestock expenses, the largest expenditure category at $5.3 billion, increased 48 percent from 2011. Feed, the next largest total expense category at $2.95 billion, increased 67 percent. Rent, the third largest expense category at $2.46 billion, increased 18 percent. Drought hit the state early last year, drying up pasture and range land and forcing producers to send cattle to feedlots a lot earlier than normal. At the same time, because of the lack of grass production and the high cost of corn and soybeans, feed costs also soared for livestock producers. Last year, corn for grain production in Nebraska was estimated at 1.29 billion bushels, down 16 percent from 2011 and the smallest production since 2006, according to USDA. Soybean production for 2012 totaled 207 million bushels, down 21 percent from 2011. Hay production totaled 4.07 million tons in 2012, down 28 percent from a year earlier. The average yield, at 1.58 tons per acre, was down 0.69 ton per acre from 2011 and the lowest in 36 years (1976). Alfalfa production was down 28 percent from a year earlier and all other hay production was down 27 percent. Relief for state livestock producers continues to be delayed as Congress has yet to pass a new farm bill with programs designed to bring relief to livestock producers hit hard by last year’s drought. The USDA reported that livestock expenses accounted for 24 percent of Nebraska’s total production expenditures. Feed accounted for 13 percent, rent 11 percent, and farm services 8 percent.

The total expenditures per farm or ranch in Nebraska averaged $470,021 in 2012, up from $370,085, an increase of 27 percent. The livestock expense category was the leading expenditure, at $113,490 per operation, more than seven times the national average. Feed expenditures, at $63,169 per operation, were more than two times the national average. The average rent expenditure, at $52,677, was nearly four times the national average. Farm services expenditures per operation, at $39,186, were more than two times the national average. Nationwide, farmers spent a record-high $351.8 billion on agricultural production in 2012, a 10.4 percent increase from 2011. Crop farms accounted for the majority of production expenditures in 2012. These expenditures totaled $200 billion, increasing 17.4 percent from 2011. Low interest rates boosted new machinery purchases in 2012, increasing the overall farm expenditures for the year. Also, chemicals, fertilizers, and seeds cost crop farmers $55.5 billion last year, accounting for 27.8 percent of crop farms’ total expenses. On the livestock side, farmers spent $152 billion, up 2.4 percent from 2011. The largest expenditure for livestock farms was feed, on which producers spent $54.4 billion in 2012. The drought reduced feed availability, causing prices to climb and making it the costliest category in the entire agriculture sector. Regionally, the largest increase in production expenditures was in the Plains, where expenditures rose by $15 billion from 2011. Per farm, the average expenditures totaled $162,743 compared with $146,653 in 2011, up 11 percent. On average, U.S. farm operations spent $27,338 on feed, $18,457 on farm services, $14,802 on livestock, poultry and related expenses, and $14,247 on labor. While farm and ranch expenditures were up, along with farm real estate values, earlier in the year USDA reported that cash receipts from Nebraska’s principal crops were $13.566 billion, down from 2012’s $13.939 billion. Cash receipts from cattle and calves in Nebraska last year totaled $10.36 billion, up from 2011’s $8.6 billion.

In a report released by the USDA on Friday, Nebraska real estate value for 2013 averaged $3,050 per acre. This is up $460 per acre or 18 percent from last year. Nebraska’s farm real estate value is a measurement of the value of all land and buildings on farms. The report said farm cropland value increased 19 percent from last year to $5,330 per acre. Dryland cropland value averaged $4,060 per acre, up $560 from last year. Irrigated cropland value averaged $7,300 per acre, up $1,300 from a year ago. Pasture land, at $700 per acre, increased $40 from a year ago. Cash rent paid to landlords in 2013 for cropland also increased from last year. Irrigated cropland rent averaged $260 per acre, an increase of $35 from the previous year. Dryland cropland rent averaged $147 per acre, up $16. Pasture rented for cash, which averaged $20 per acre, was up $2.50 from the previous year. Nationwide, farm real estate value averaged $2,900 per acre for 2013, up 9.4 percent from revised 2012 values. According to the USDA, regional changes in the average value of farm real estate ranged from a 23.1 percent increase in the Northern Plains region to no change in the Southeast region. The highest farm real estate values were in the Corn Belt region at $6,400 per acre. The Mountain region had the lowest farm real estate value at $1,020 per acre. The USDA reported that United States cropland value increased by $460 per acre or 13 percent to $4,000 per acre. In the Northern Plains and Corn Belt regions, the average cropland value increased 25 and 16.1 percent, respectively, from the previous year. However, in the Southeast region, cropland values decreased by 2.8 percent. U.S. pasture value increased to $1,200 per acre, or 4.3 percent above 2012, the USDA reported. The Southeast region had the largest percentage decrease in pasture value, 1.5 percent below 2012. The Northern Plains had the biggest increase at 18.4 percent.

Former Popcorn Capital Still Popping for Theaters, Ball Parks Melanie Brandert, The Norfolk Daily News NORTH BEND — Phil Roubal and his father, Lloyd, represent the last chapter of a long popcorn-producing tradition in this once-bustling popcorn mecca. The younger Roubal, 62, raises 90 acres of concession-style popcorn north of North Bend, with help from his father, who is mostly retired at 85. "It will go to ball parks and movie theaters," Phil Roubal said of his crop. "The main emphasis is the volume of pop. They want the pop really big so it doesn't take as much corn to fill up the box." Back in the 1970s and 1980s, North Bend was known as the Popcorn Capital of the World. One of the town's main businesses was Blevins Popcorn Co., which processed popcorn for more than 40 years. Other towns claimed the title, but it was a source of community pride in North Bend, said Bill Young, 70, of Papillion, who worked for Blevins for roughly 33 years when he lived in the area. "I think it was a good bragging thing," he said. "I've always said the best place to raise popcorn is the state of Nebraska with irrigation and sandier soil." A local family started Korn Inc. in the 1940s or 1950s on the north end of Main Street until Jim Blevins of Nashville, Tenn., bought the plant in 1958, Young said.

Blevins Popcorn Co. handled mostly yellow popcorn with smaller grains for grocery stores and larger grains for theater popcorn, packaging them in 1-pound, 2-pound and 11-pound bags, Young said. "When I was doing contracting for Blevins, I had probably 50 or 60 popcorn growers. (It) stretched from just over in Iowa clear out to Grand Island and up in O'Neill, Atkinson," he said, adding North Bend had a few as well. Lloyd Roubal started growing 25 to 30 acres of popcorn in the late 1950s because it was an early harvest crop compared to commercial seed corn and required less storage. "All the popcorn we raised went to town," he said, referring to the Blevins plant. Phil Roubal said popcorn prices must stay competitive with regular corn, and the production practices for both corn varieties are similar. The Roubals strive for a yield of 6,000 pounds per acre. Because they use gravity irrigation on their fields, last year's drought didn't affect their yields. "That's what made it a little attractive in that respect," he said, referring to prices. Because the plant constantly tested the quality of popcorn kernels, local residents often could get popcorn for free. The local John Deere dealer often brought popcorn back for customers, Lloyd Roubal said. During North Bend's popcorn peak in the late '70s and early '80s, Blevins had 50 employees, Young said.

Tom Wolf, local native and president of Platte Valley Bank in North Bend, said Blevins was a major employer. "It was a very important part of the community," he said. "A lot of our growers made money selling their popcorn. "When it closed, it had an effect," Wolf said. The plant laid off 25 employees in the 1990s when production and sales of microwave and ready-to-eat popcorn took off and fewer consumers bought 1-pound and 2-pound bags, Young said. The plant also saw various ownership changes with cooperatives such as Pro-Fac in Rochester, N.Y., taking over. "I was hurt because there were a lot of people who lost their jobs at the time," Young said. "Looking back, you could see it was the beginning of the end in the business." When the popcorn plant closed in June 2001, only Young, who was now manager, and two employees were left. They unloaded and bagged popcorn as a storage facility. The plant's closure forced local producers to store their crop on their farms or deliver it to Blevins' plant in Ridgway, Ill. By then, more farmers had stopped raising popcorn because stalk quality made it difficult to handle, Phil Roubal said. The Roubals now grow their crop for a Missouri company that packages popcorn. As long as popcorn prices stay competitive, they anticipate raising the grain for the unforeseeable future.

NEBRASKA ECONOMY MAY BE IN JEOPARDY WITH LACK OF FARM BILL Continued from page 1 Scheer said commodity programs are only one part of Farm Bill legislation. A larger portion, he said, is dedicated to food assistance and nutrition programs. While the Senate passed its version of the bill that included both, the House passed only commodity titles. Scheer said this is the first time in history the two have been split in this way. Since the House has not scheduled consideration of the nutrition portion, the entire Farm Bill is stalled. "Food production and food assistance programs have always been supported by Republicans and Democrats — and rural and urban policymakers — until now," Scheer said. "The fact that food producers and those needing food assistance are

being held hostage by partisan politics is both unprecedented and unconscionable." A number of key factors in Nebraska agriculture are at risk without a farm bill, Scheer said, including crop insurance, export promotion, international trade servicing and research programs. "Agriculture is one of the few trade success stories for America as we export grain and meat and our global leadership in agriculture is due in great part to our research and scientific advancements," he said. "All of that is in jeopardy thanks to Congress' inability to act." Scheer said Congress began its recess on Friday and the House leadership decided not to take up the nutrition title before that break. Fills and Packs Pivot Tracks

"When Congress returns, that only leaves nine days for the House to pass a nutrition title, send it to the Senate, name conferees, agree to a compromise, and get a bill to the House and Senate for a vote," Scheer said. "Short of that, we’ll end up with another extension or, worse yet, no farm bill at all." Scheer said the Nebraska Corn Board has established a page on its website (http://www.NebraskaCorn.org) that enables farmers to reach Nebraska and key federal policymakers via email to make comments. The link on the home page also includes a countdown indicating the amount of time left before Congress reconvenes.

HEARTLAND CATTLEMAN Dedicated to the Livestock Industry

National Farmers Union Joins Lawsuit to Defend COOL Rule Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent The National Farmers Union announced that its board of directors voted unanimously to intervene in a recently-filed Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) lawsuit seeking an injunction to vacate and halt the implementation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) final COOL rule. "We strongly support USDA’s final rule because it addresses the issues previously brought forth to the World Trade Organization and preserves the consumer’s right to know where their food comes from," said NFU President Roger Johnson. National Farmers Union is joining with the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association in efforts to defend COOL. "We have fought long and hard for the implementation of COOL, and will continue to do so for as long as it takes," Johnson said. Leo McDonnell, director emeritus of the United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA), said USCA is leading COOL supporters in intervention in the lawsuit and is asking the court to halt the implementation and enforcement of the revised COOL regulations. Plaintiffs in the suit are the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), American Meat Institute (AMI), Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, Canadian Pork Council, National Pork Producers Council, North American Meat Association (NAMA), American Association of Meat Processors and Southwest Meat Association. The suit also names Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack and

Anne Alonzo, administrator of the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), as defendants. McDonnell said the USCA board has consulted with legal counsel in order to understand what the industry’s best options are to assist with the defense of COOL in this case. Based on those discussions, he said the USCA board unanimously chose to intervene in this case and will lead a national effort to coordinate and network other key industry groups and associations into the process. McDonnell said this is an "extremely important move and it must happen rapidly." "It is our responsibility to intervene in this lawsuit to ensure that the court hears from the U.S. cattle industry and receives facts and arguments that will have a more meaningful impact coming from the industry itself," he said. McDonnell said the plaintiffs seek to remove from us cattle producer’s right to differentiate their product with a USA label. He said NCBA and the other plaintiffs argue that "beef is beef, whether the cattle are raised in Montana, Manitoba or Mazatlan." "Many producer groups, such as USCA, and consumer groups believe that consumers are entitled to the type of information the revised USDA regulations provide," he said. "It is important that those who believe this have their voices heard in this litigation." Johnson said "packer-producer organizations that have filed the suit against the USDA are

continuing to refuse consumers’ right and desire to know where their food comes from." McDonnell said the case involves various challenges, including a constitutionality question. At the district court level, he said, the case is likely to be more complicated than just a single round of briefings. "With that in mind, USCA is preparing an intervention that will take us through a potential trial court phase and any hearings scheduled," McDonnell said. He said USCA legal counsel is drafting the initial court filings and fundraising has commenced to meet the costs. "We have initiated contact with auction markets soliciting their help with fundraising and have received overwhelming support," McDonnell said. "Auction markets in the Dakotas and Montana are already organizing rollover calf sales and other efforts to assist with raising the funds needed for this action." Among the plaintiffs is the American Meat Institute. The basis of the of the plaintiffs preliminary Injunction against the Country-ofOrigin Labeling (COOL) rule is that it would cause "irreparable harm to the industry and have severe economic impacts that are not in the public interest." According to AMI, plaintiffs assert that "the Final Rule will irreparably harm meat-industry participants throughout the country. Plaintiffs are trade organizations that represent regulated entities facing immediate and substantial burdens and costs under the Final Rule."

Lean hog trade moved sharply higher before seeing more selling pressure at midweek. October futures were 140 higher. The deferred months have struggled with ideas of herd expansion and the discount to August has widened. October futures have resistance at 8600, and support at 8300 for now. The pork cutout have firmed this week, helping packer margins while they still have work hard for higher numbers. The dollar has remained soft helping export margins. The market will continue to speculate about herd expansion this fall keeping trade active, but disease may limit the ability to scale up to take advantage of cheaper corn. Hedge pressure has been evident at mid-week. Hedgers call with questions, and focus on margins looking forward.

Aug. 13 Feeder 15080 15560

Live cattle have been sideways in mostly choppy trade this week. Feeder cattle have faded with the inability of the live cattle trade to sustain better higher trade. Live cattle are 20 higher on the week, while feeder cattle are 50 lower after seeing fresh highs. The cutout activity has started to rebound through the middle of the week. Choice is $1.45 higher to $188.66 and select is up .83 at $181.67. Cash trade stayed sideways to soft with trade in the $119-$121 area. Showlists have stayed pretty steady the last couple of weeks. Packer margins are still okay, but demand remains fairly lackluster, and they have struggled to buy cheaper cash beef. October Live

Cattle on the chart have been sideways to lower, but the bounce on Wednesday may find some momentum before the week is over. October Live Cattle chart resistance in now the $125.10, the 10-day moving average, if we could get a breakout the upside target would be the 200-day up at 128.30. Support remains at $123. Exports have been soft, and carcass weights are benefitting from the cool temps bring in the choice select spread. The trends remain up for feeders and sideways for Live Cattle that flirted with the downside this past week, but we bounced back. Hedgers call with questions.

Treasury Specialists at Nebraska State Fair to Help Citizens Recover Unclaimed Property The Grand Island Independent The Nebraska State Fair, Aug. 23-Sept. 2, and Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 10-12, will host unclaimed property specialists with the Nebraska state treasurer’s office as part of a statewide outreach. The specialists will be available to help Nebraskans search for money they didn’t know they had, said State Treasurer Don Stenberg. The unclaimed property specialists will also be available during Kearney Gateway Ag Show Nov. 20-21. So far in 2013, the state treasurer’s office has returned $6,035,888 in unclaimed property to rightful owners. That figure represents 10,851 claims. "An important part of the work of our Unclaimed Property Division is outreach, making sure Nebraskans know about the state’s unclaimed property program and how to search for property for themselves, their friends and relatives, and their businesses and organizations," Stenberg said. He said events like these provide opportunities for his staff to make contact with Nebraskans and to answer their questions about unclaimed We also carry Bass Pro & Redhead Brand Hunting & Fishing Accessories

property and to provide information about how to file claims. "We are holding more than $125 million of property for more than 350,000 Nebraskans or former Nebraskans or heirs," Stenberg said. "Given those statistics, Nebraskans have a one-infive chance of finding property that belongs to them." Unclaimed property consists of cash and other personal assets that are considered lost or abandoned after an owner cannot be located for a specified period of time. The property is turned over to the State by banks, insurance companies, merchants and other businesses. Other ways to search for unclaimed property: -- Check the Nebraska state treasurer’s website at http://www.treasurer.org. Type a name in the box on the home page, or click on the "Search for Unclaimed Property" tab in the left navigation pane. For amounts under $300, owners may be able to file their claims online through the website. Claims take three to four weeks to process. -- Call the Unclaimed Property Division at 877572-9688 toll free or 402-471-8497 in Lincoln between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.

-- Visit the unclaimed property office at 809 P St. in Lincoln or in the treasurer’s office in Suite 2005 of the State Capitol. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Bring your driver’s license and Social Security card as well as documentation if filing on behalf of a business or a deceased family member. Facts about unclaimed property: -- Most common forms of unclaimed property are dividends, dormant accounts, gift certificates, insurance payments, matured CDs, lost IRAs, wages, rebates, stock and mutual funds, utility deposits and abandoned safe deposit boxes. -- Unclaimed property does not include land, real estate, vehicles or tax refunds. -- Unclaimed property is held by the State until an owner or heir can be documented; an owner or heir never loses the right to file a claim. -- There is no charge to search or file a claim. -- To maximize efforts, searchers should use various forms of a name – with and without initials, with and without middle name, using a previous married name or a maiden name, reversing the order of the first and last names.

Feed accounted for 13, Rent 11, and Farm Services 8 percent.

The total expenditures per farm or ranch in Nebraska averaged $470,021 in 2012, up from $370,085, an increase of 27 percent.
