Soil Loss Workshop-DEADLINE Aug 5
Aug 14 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

RUSLE2 Soil Loss Workshop Sessions Will Be Offered Online – Aug 10-14 – deadline Aug 5

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service and Iowa Department of Natural Resources, has scheduled a workshop to train livestock producers and service providers on how to use the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation 2 (RUSLE2) and the Iowa Phosphorus Index in nutrient management and manure management plans. RUSLE2 software calculates soil loss for a given field, which is needed to figure out the Iowa Phosphorus Index. 

The RUSLE2 workshop will be held online from Aug. 10-14. Each day, one session will be held from 2:30-4 p.m. using Zoom. Participants will need to pre-install the freely available Zoom Software Application to participate. A web link will be sent daily to the participants to join the zoom session online.

The sessions of this introductory level workshop will provide hands-on software orientation for RUSLE2, including an introduction to the operating parameters, selection of input values, and developing and saving management operations.

Additionally, real field examples will be used in the sessions to determine risk calculations of the Iowa Phosphorus Index and how to incorporate these numbers into manure and nutrient management planning requirements. Manure management planning, soil sampling requirements, common errors and the IDNR’s review process also will be discussed. An orientation into the new soil loss calculation software, WEPP – Water Erosion Prediction Project, will also be provided.

The workshop sessions will be taught by Don Corrington, U.S. Department of Agriculture-NRCS; Kapil Arora and Dan Andersen, agricultural and biosystems engineering specialists with ISU Extension and Outreach; and Jeremy Klatt, Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

Cost of the five workshop sessions is $150 if registered by Aug. 5, and $175 after that date. Participants must have an MS Windows compatible laptop or desktop computer equipped with camera and audio speakers; Microsoft Excel software; and the administrator password to the computer in order to install software.

Workshop coordinators will work with the registered participants prior to the workshop to pre-install the needed software. The workshop is limited to 15 participants and all participants must pre-register. Crop Advisor Credits (6 SW, 1 NM) are available for this workshop.

The agenda for different daily sessions and registration instructions, and additional workshop details are available on the RUSLE2 Workshop website. Participants interested in attending the workshop can register online.

Governor’s Charity Steer Show
Aug 15 all-day

2020 Governor’s Charity Steer Show Comes to Iowa State University – Aug 15

For the first time in its 38 year history, the annual Governor’s Charity Steer Show (GCSS) will not be held at the Iowa State Fair. Due to the cancellation of this year’s fair, Iowa State University will host the event.

The event, which raises money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa, will be held on August 15, 2020. Organized by the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and Iowa Beef Industry Council, the GCSS has raised over $3.8 million to help provide a home away from home for families of children who are being treated in nearby hospitals. Ronald McDonald Houses are located in Des Moines, Iowa City, and Sioux City.

Twenty-five steers from across the state will compete for the championship designation, showmanship honors, and the People’s Choice award. The steers have been raised by Iowa youth involved in the cattle industry, and celebrities will accompany the young steer owners in the ring. Immediately following the competition, the steers will be sold at auction with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. Last year’s auction raised more than $284,000.

The event will be invite-only, and participants will be encouraged to follow the university’s social distancing guidelines. The show and auction will be streamed live online, and fans can donate to the cause and vote for the People’s Choice award online.

Beginning July 30, the group will kick off an initiative to help answer key questions regarding the development of drought in western Iowa, the expectation for continued hot and dry weather and impacts on row crops and forages. Attendees will be able to better manage livestock and drought-stressed forages, prepare for use of alternative forages, understand important crop insurance and marketing decisions, and plan for harvest of a drought-stressed crop.

Topics will include a general weather update, drought monitor updates, pasture and hay shortages, preparing for silage and nitrates, yield estimates, and end-of-year considerations related to grain quality and storage.

The webinars will run from 1-2 p.m. on July 30, Aug. 6, Aug. 13 and Aug. 20, and are intended for crop farmers and livestock producers in drought-affected areas, ag service providers and ag retailers, farm managers, ag lenders and anyone impacted by drought conditions in Iowa.

2020 International Fuel Ethanol Wksp & Expo
Aug 24 – Aug 26 all-day

BBI International has announced this week that the 2020 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo, the ethanol industry’s largest conference, has been moved due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Originally scheduled for mid-June in Minneapolis, the FEW is now rescheduled to take place August 24th through August 26th, 2020 in Omaha, Nebraska.

BBI International also announced that all biofuels producers will be allowed to attend free of charge. “Previously, free registration was limited to two ethanol producers per facility,” said Joe Bryan, CEO of BBI International. “However, due to the state of events that have taken place this year, we are allowing free registration to all producers who work at ethanol facilities. No longer will we be limiting it to only two per facility.”

As announced earlier in the year, the FEW will be offering four tracks of comprehensive content designed for ethanol production. New this year, the program team is including a co-located event titled, “Biodiesel Production and Technology Summit.” Produced by Biodiesel Magazine, the co-located event is a new forum intended for biodiesel and renewable diesel producers to learn about cutting-edge process technologies, new techniques and equipment to optimize existing production, and efficiencies to save money while increasing throughput and fuel quality.

The Future of Farming and Ranching on Display at HHD 2020Sept. 15-17, 2020
www.huskerharvestdays.com

Husker Harvest Days annually hosts hundreds of exhibitors displaying the latest farm equipment, tractors, combines and farm implements; seed and crop protection products; and many additional farm supplies and services. HHD is ‘The World’s Largest Totally Irrigated Working Farm Show’ and holds more products and ideas for your farm or ranch than you will find at any other local or regional show.

Producers from the U.S. and around the world attend this industry-leading annual agricultural event. Ag manufacturers and suppliers from across the country and around the world are exhibitors.

More beef for cattle producers
There’s no doubt these are trying times in the beef industry. At Husker Harvest Days this year, we’re building on something new we offered in 2019 — a solid program of beef information for producers.  Held in the cattle demo facility and significantly upgraded three years ago, the presentations will offer information on genetics, marketing, grazing and consumer opportunities.

Health and safety commitment
The show staff is working diligently to deliver an impactful and engaging event that prioritizes the health and safety of visitors and exhibitors. New carefully considered plans for safety precautions and procedures will be introduced for this year’s Husker Harvest Days.

Visitor safety is key
Farmers who attend the show can expect to see that health and safety is a priority, and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experience.

Farm Progress parent company, Informa, which annually holds more than 600 in-person and virtual content-driven events, in conjunction with industry peers, suppliers and association partners, has developed AllSecure, a set of enhanced standards and guidelines to provide the highest level of hygiene and safety at all Informa’s events. Husker Harvest Days will be organized in accordance with the AllSecure standard, providing visitors and exhibitors with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.
