THEDFORD, Neb. (AP) - A judge has ordered a family ranch to let Nebraska Public Power District access its land for survey work.
Court records say the ruling came Monday in the Brush Creek Ranch lawsuit against the district. The lawsuit sought unspecified compensation for damage to land north of Thedford that was done by a survey team checking land boundaries for a power line project.
The district said Nebraska law gave it the authority as a publicly owned utility to survey the ranch and other land. The lawsuit said the utility first should have begun condemnation proceedings and obtained court authority for the survey.
The judge ruled for the district,...
United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, Opposing, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on August 15, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A.

About 150 groups from around the country that provide services to American Indian farmers and ranchers have applied to receive grant money from a $38 million fund. It was set up as part of the federal government's $680 million loan discrimination settlement with Native Americans in 2011. It settled a class-action lawsuit filed in 1999 by Indian farmers who said they were denied loans for decades because of government discrimination. Most of the settlement money goes to farmers. There also is a $265 million long-term trust, and the $38 million "fast track fund" to get some money out to nonprofits more quickly. An advisory committee will whittle down the fast track fund proposals and make a...Read More...
Wheat crops in western Nebraska have been severely affected by stripe rust for the last decade. It is not necessarily a new disease, but it has become much more prevalent and more problematic than the other wheat rust disease (leaf rust), which has historically been our major rust disease. However there are some steps that should be taken (or at least considered) before planting wheat in the next few weeks. These steps will not only help manage stripe rust, but can also assist in achieving a good stand and a healthy, vigorously-growing crop prior to winter and going into dormancy. Many of the problems on wheat are due to stresses resulting in overall weaker crops, allowing a greater degree...Read More...
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — State auditors have raised concerns about spending and other management practices at the Nebraska agency that inspects cattle and investigates missing and stolen livestock. The audit released Tuesday faulted managers at the Nebraska Brand Committee. Among the findings, auditors say the committee's executive director used a state vehicle for a personal trip to Wyoming and approved sale of livestock without proof of ownership in at least once instance. Executive director Shawn Harvey denied using his state vehicle for the Wyoming trip and blamed miscommunication for the sale of livestock without proof of ownership. The Branding Committee vice chairman, John Widdowson,...Read More...
The oat and winter wheat harvests are ahead of the average pace in South Dakota, where dry conditions are becoming a concern for pastures and soil moisture. The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that more than one-third of the oats and more than half of the winter wheat is in the bin. About two-thirds of both crops are rated in good-to-excellent condition, but dry conditions are a concern for ranchers. Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 47 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 74 percent adequate to surplus. Both percentages have declined in recent weeks. Soil moisture also is being affected. Topsoil moisture statewide is rated 43 percent short...Read More...
