There also have been cases this year in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming and Arizona.

South Dakota State Veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven says good sanitation and biosecurity measures can help prevent the spread of the disease.

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says he's not ready to declare the Midwest bird flu outbreak over. While no new cases of the H5N2 virus have been detected over for over a month, Vilsack told The Associated Press on Monday that the threat hasn't passed. Vilsack said poultry producers have caught a break thanks to the summer weather because warmer temperatures tend to kill the virus. But he also said his agency is aware of the need to be prepared in case the disease reappears this fall. He noted that USDA officials and poultry industry groups plan to meet in Iowa next week to discuss those plans. Bird flu has cost Midwest poultry producers about 48 million birds, mostly egg-laying chickens...

Economists are forecasting Nebraska's farm income to drop nearly 45 percent this year due to lower crop prices and reduced government payments.

But according to the latest three-year forecast of the state's economy, Nebraska's farm income is expected to stabilize in 2016 and 2017. Non-farmers should anticipate their personal income to grow solidly through 2017. The report is by the Bureau of Business Research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska Business Forecast Council.

Nebraska job growth is expected to lag behind the national average due to the anticipated farm income decline. Nebraska jobs are predicted to grow at a rate of 1.2 percent, or 12,000...
