Nebraska Extension to Host Beef-focused Private Pesticide Certification Workshop

Nebraska Extension will be hosting a Beef Production-focused Private Pesticide License Certification Program Dec. 6, 2021 in Valentine, Nebraska. The program will run from 11 a.m. CT until 3 p.m. CT at the 4-H Building on the fairgrounds in Valentine. 

This program is open to all but will include the opportunity to renew private pesticide licenses and obtain your initial application license, if desired. You can join us for just the first three informational sessions or if you need to renew your private pesticide applicator license in 2022, please attend the whole program. Even though this training is being offered in 2021, you will not lose a year of certification on your license. If you are being recertified for your private pesticide applicators license, the cost will be $50 — the same as you would pay to be recertified at a traditional private pesticide applicator training.   

Local beef systems extension educators will offer presentations on topics that include a synopsis of the newly released 2022 Nebraska Beef Report, which summarizes research studies that are relevant to the area of cow-calf production and yearling operations. Current and future range monitoring techniques will be discussed and using that data to improve management decisions. Lastly, the initial opportunity to hear the Cow Nutrition 201 topic that analyzes matching your resources to cow requirements throughout gestation. 

Lunch will be provided thanks to our sponsor, Security First Bank of Valentine, Nebraska. There is no additional cost to attend the workshop outside of the fee for renewing private applicators licenses. Register for the workshop online or by calling your local extension office
