Corn and soybean growers are invited to attend the Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project on-farm research update March 13 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead.
The 9 a.m.-3 p.m. program will be at the August N. Christenson Research and Education Building.
Producers will obtain valuable crop production-related information from on-farm research projects conducted on Nebraska farms by Nebraska farmers.
The Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project is an on-farm research project designed to provide farm operators with an understanding of how to conduct crop research on their farms using their own machinery. Comparisons are scientifically designed, statistically analyzed and conducted for three years to assure reliable, useful information.
Registration is $50 for non-NSFGPP members and includes a copy of the annual on-farm research report, refreshments and noon luncheon. Pre-registration is encouraged by March 8. To register or for more information about the Nebraska Soybean and Feed Grains Profitability Project or how to conduct crop-related research on your farm, call (800) 529-8030 or visit the Web at http://on-farmresearch.unl.edu/.

"Intestinal Triglyceride Transport and Metabolism: Storage and Secretion" presented by Dr. Kimberly Buhman. Dr. Buhman is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Nutrition Science at Purdue University. She completed her PhD in Nutrition at Purdue University and postdoctoral fellowships in lipid metabolism at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Current research in the Buhman laboratory is focused on better understanding the process of dietary fat absorption. The long-term goal of research by the Buhman laboratory is to identify novel factors that regulate dietary fat sensing, metabolism and absorption that may be exploited for preventive and therapeutic interventions for obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
