A Lincoln man has completed a nearly 200-mile run in five days from Valentine to Norfolk.  Tom Volk started in Valentine on Monday of last week and finished his 196-mile trek Friday in Norfolk. He says he ran about 12 minutes and 30 seconds for each mile, which included a few walk breaks. He started his journey with Andy Pollock, who also lives in Lincoln. They had hoped to make the run together to call attention to the need to finish the trail west of Valentine. They planned to only stop for water, other liquids and food about every 10 miles. Pollock ran 101 miles before stopping on Wednesday, because of a half-dollar sized blister on his left foot.

Flu is here. The first confirmed cases of the season have been reported to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. There are three, all in Douglas County. “Several viruses are in the news right now including Ebola and enterovirus, but it’s also important to remember that flu can be a serious disease,” said Dr. Joseph Acierno, Chief Medical Officer and Director of Public Health for DHHS. “Getting vaccinated is the most important step you can take to protect yourself and your family from flu.” The severity and the length of flu seasons vary, but flu season in the U.S. typically peaks between December and February. Though public health officials can’t predict exactly...

A climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center says some corn fields in the Dakotas might not be harvested until spring.  Brian Fuchs says the cool, wet growing season has created concerns about the moisture content of the corn. He says some farmers might leave corn standing in the field through the winter so it dries properly. A similar situation occurred in the winter of 2008-2009. The corn harvest in both Dakotas is well behind average. The federal Agriculture Department says only about 12 percent of the South Dakota crop and only about 2 percent of the North Dakota crop is in the bin. Farmers in the two states are projected to produce more than 1 billion bushels of corn this...

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Nebraska's harvests of corn and soybeans are lagging the average harvests completed by the date. In a report for last week's Nebraska activity, the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service says 19 percent of the corn has been harvested, compared with the average of 34 percent by the date. Forty-five percent of the soybeans has been harvested, compared with the average of 66 percent by the date. The USDA says 95 percent of the expected winter wheat crop had been planted, compared with 91 percent for the five-year average by the date.

Dry conditions across much of South Dakota over the past week have aided farmers planting winter wheat and harvesting row crops.   The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 90 percent of the state's winter wheat crop is in the ground, and more than half of it has emerged.   The harvest of soybeans is about equal to the average pace, but the harvest of corn, sorghum and sunflowers in South Dakota remains well behind the average.   Pasture and range conditions are rated 67 percent good to excellent, and stockwater supplies are 86 percent adequate to surplus.

A virus that killed millions of baby pigs in the last year and led to higher pork prices has waned thanks to warmer weather and farmers' efforts to sterilize their operations. And as pigs' numbers increase, sticker shock on things like bacon should ease. Already, hog supplies are on the rise, with 5.46 million baby pigs born between June and August in Iowa, the nation's leading producer - the highest quarterly total in 20 years and a record 10.7 surviving pigs per litter, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report. It's a significant turnaround from a year ago when the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus was wiping out entire litters. Since the virus first showed up, the federal government...

Many of us in Nebraska are still connected with agriculture. If we are not directly involved, then we probably have an extended family member or a friend who is. Nebraska supplies the world with 1.2 billion bushels of corn and 245 million bushels of soybeans each fall, which make their way into our diets as ingredients of manufactured foods and indirectly as feed for meat production. But even here in Nebraska it can be hard to remember that, in buying those products, we’re supporting practices that may have unintended consequences for our state’s outdoors. The ramifications of these choices were underscored again in light of announcements earlier this year by agrichemical companies Dow...

Three generations have converged in a northern South Dakota field for this year's pheasant opener. Bob, John and Ben, all sharing the Donner last name, traveled 180 miles from Clara City, Minnesota, to Chelsea to take part on South Dakota's famous event.
