LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A program that allows Nebraska landowners to harvest hay from state highway right-of-ways is now in effect.

The Nebraska Department of Roads says landowners whose property abuts a right-of-way now have until July 30 to secure a $40 hay permit, and may begin harvesting on July 15 once the permit is issued. The permit does not apply to interstate highways or freeways. Anyone can apply after July 30, and may harvest through Sept. 15.

The state requires proof of $1 million liability insurance with every application.

Officials say any hay harvested without a permit will become the property of the state and will be confiscated by the Roads Department.
