The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced a Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) general signup. Pheasants Forever will be hosting a Landowner Informational meeting on Tuesday, March 6, from 3 – 5 p.m. at the Extension Service to help answer questions about how to improve enrollment chances and wildlife values.
The general CRP signup begins March 12 and runs through April 6. Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Biologists, FSA, NRCS, and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission staff will be on hand to provide a brief presentation and then answer questions.
“The process for enrollment is pretty complex and the competition to get in is going to be steep,” according to Ryan Lodge, Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist.
“We are providing this service to help out those who are interested. Obviously though, more and better CRP means more pheasants and other wildlife too, which is why we work so hard for this program and for producers.”

District #18 Superintendent Steve Dennis has been hired to fill the same position at another school district in Nebraska.
Dennis said last week he has accepted the position of superintendent at Wilcox-Hildreth School District. A member of the Fort Kearny Conference, the school district is located southeast of Holdrege.
The school district is classified as Class D-1 by the Nebraska School Activities Association.
Dennis said he and his wife, who is a school teacher in Ord, will look to re-locate in that part of the state.
He said he was offered the position late last week.
Dennis was hired by the District #18 Board of Education to serve as EPS superintendent in April 2009. When his contract expires at the end of June, Dennis will have served three years as superintendent at EPS. Dennis was hired to replace interim superintendent Lee Hall.
He submitted his resignation to the District #18 school board at their regular meeting in December 2011.
