News Releases

University of Minnesota Extension’s most recent statewide news releases and Ag News Wire columns.

Representing agricultural achievement in diverse farming operations, 74 families from throughout Minnesota are being honored as a 2014 Farm Family of the Year by the University of Minnesota.

Heavy rains can add water to manure storage. This reduces space for manure and freeboard and makes emptying pits more difficult.

Producers and veterinarians must report porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) and porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV), according to a new federal order from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Producers who suspect their pigs have PEDv or PDCoV should work with their veterinarian to diagnose, report and manage the virus.

Spring rains and flooded fields have delayed or prevented planting for many farmers in Minnesota. If farmers have multi-peril crop insurance and have not been able to plant by their crop's final planting date, they do have options.

University of Minnesota Extension offers extensive educational resources for residents hit by flooding and those in areas where flood threats remain strong.
