Carbon Payments, Wind Energy Focus of Ord Meeting

Nebraska Farmers Union is one of the sponsors.

Nebraska Farmers Union will team up with the Loup Basin Resource Conservation and Development Center district to inform farmers and ranchers about the financial opportunities of carbon sequestration and community-owned wind energy.

The informational meeting will be held at the Valley County Ag Complex July 23 at 3 p.m. in Ord.

The meeting will feature presentations about carbon sequestration and how farmers and ranchers can earn additional income by storing carbon through no-till practices and improved grazing techniques on rangeland. There will also be a review of the new wind energy development model approved by the 2007 Nebraska Legislature.
