Ag News: USDA Extends School Lunches
**The USDA is extending flexibilities to continue allowing free meals to all children throughout the school year.
This move is part of USDA’s commitment to ensuring all American children have access to nutritious food as the nation recovers from the pandemic.
Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue says as our nation recovers and reopens, we want to ensure all children continue receiving the nutritious breakfasts and lunches they count on.
**Ceres Imaging, the aerial imagery company that builds irrigation management solutions, announced the addition of plant level insights to their mobile app.
The feature elevates irrigation strategies in fruit and nut tree management with powerful metrics to help customers take tree level data and turn it into a plan for raising performance across their operation.
The new interface allows growers to measure how their irrigation strategy is trending, ensuring focus on the right issues.
**Where our food comes from was part of the conversation before COVID-19, but when it comes to beef, the idea of knowing the pasture to plate path of your steak has become much easier.
Now, according to agrimarketing.com, shoppers looking to find a local resource for buying beef have an online tool, thanks to the new California Local Beef Directory.
Created by the California Beef Council, the directory is available at CalBeef.org and provides resources for those purchasing beef directly from California's ranchers.
