The Weather Ready Farms designation program is currently working to expand its social media presence to reach more farms and ranchers in Nebraska, as well as agricultural professionals. The Weather Ready Farms is designed to improve and increase resilience towards the impacts of extreme weather on Nebraska’s farms. Our social media platforms will be used to bring awareness about farm resiliency and agriculture education events and resources offered by Nebraska Extension, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and other partnered agriculture education programs. We will also highlight the research of Nebraska Extension educators and offer updates about Weather Ready Farms progress, developing pilots and interviews with their participants.

  • Weekly posts highlighting different farm resiliency topics such as:
    • Soil Health
