ND ethanol producer says costs, location bode well ■

C

ASSELTON, N.D. — Corn ethanol producers had a rough year in 2012. While major players in the Northern Plains ethanol business see a volatile but profitable 2013, they foresee perhaps smoother sailing in 2014 and 2015. Ryan Thorpe is chief operating officer of Tharaldson Ethanol Plant LLC, one of the two largest ethanol plants in the state and the seventh-largest nationwide. The plant consumes about 50 million bushels of corn per year, mostly from a 60mile radius. Tharaldson Ethanol produces about 153 million gallons of ethanol per year. The plant was built with about $300 million and has been in operation since ! Tharaldson Ethanol has one of the largest single-column distillation towers late 2008. It is privately in the world, says chief operating officer Ryan Thorpe. Under pressure, owned by the Tharaldson alcohol has a lower boiling temperature than water. Once the ethanol is family, Thorpe says, referproduced, it must be distilled from the water. ring to a group of individu-

Scholarships awarded to 2 future agricultural pilots

■ SAVANNAH, Ga. – Two budding

pilots are a step closer to soaring over the fields of America thanks to a pair of scholarships from BASF and the National Agricultural Aviation Association. Justin Mook of Wiggins, Colo., and Kippy Foltyn of Lansford, N.D., were awarded NAAA/BASF Agricultural Aviation Scholarships of $5,000 and $2,500, respectively. The scholarships are the product of a partnership between BASF and NAAA, a partnership that aims to build the future of aerial application. Mook is currently enrolled in Enrich’s Helicopters Flight School in Colorado Springs, Colo., where he is pursuing his commercial pilot’s license. Foltyn attended Ag Flight Pilot Training LLC in Bainbridge, Ga., and plans to continue his education later this year with plans to become an aerial applicator.

Members retire from National Pork Board

■ Jim Meimann, senior vice presi-

dent for governance and operations for the National Pork Board, and Mike Wegner, vice president of communications for the NPB, retired April 1. Meimann began his 27 years of service to the pork industry with the National Pork Producers Council in 1986 at the start of the pork checkoff and joined the Pork Board in 2001. Through the years, he has made many contributions to the industry, including organizing the checkoff and ensuring a smooth transition during the separation of NPPC and the NPB. Meimann guided legal counsel during a fiveyear trademark infringement challenge of the use of “Pork. The Other White Meat.” He helped secure a precedent-setting victory. He also has been the chief adviser and counselor to five different Pork Board and NPPC chief executive officers. Wegner has been instrumental in branding the pork checkoff and helping producers understand how their checkoff contribution is invested. In his 11 years with NPB, Wegner led a team of industry leaders in developing the pork industry’s ethical principles that serve as the foundation for the We Care initiative. He helped create the Operation Main Street speakers program and has overseen the development of a social media program, an industryleading issues management program and has been a major contributor to the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance’s consumer outreach efforts.

How much money is enough for producers to try different grades of beef? ■

By Miranda Reiman “That’s real money.” It seems like I’ve heard that exclaimed a lot lately. In presentations and sales pitches, it’s the popular way to illustrate the value of using a management strategy or product. Even the nightly news shows feature stories on how a consultant helped consumers save on prescriptions or when buying a car, saying “That’s real money.” Some of you may be of the same philosophy that we adhere to in our house. The “penny saved, penny earned” concept has my husband figuring centsper-ounce on my grocery store purchases and leads us to do without cable. If you fit into that conservative camp, then pocket change is significant in your book. To others, it takes a little more

North Dakota Farmer’s Union. “Consumers want to be able to easily learn the origins of their food and farmers and ranchers should be able to let them know,” says National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson. The recently proposed COOL rule, issued in response to challenges from our trading partners in the World Trade Organization, meets the requirements set forth by the WTO and bolsters the accuracy of information provided to consumers.” The proposed COOL rule would not require producers or processors to collect additional information; nor will it increase food cost to our consumers. “The packers and packer-producer organizations have cried wolf before. The administration should stand strong and move forward with their proposal,” Johnson says. The Office of Management and Budget reviewed the proposed rule before it was published in the Federal Register. OMB deemed the rule to be economically insignificant, as

its analysis found that the amended COOL rules would not cost more than $100 million. This stands in stark contrast to the shrill claims by packers and processors, who stated as recently as 2009 that COOL would cost $1.058 billion to $1.26 billion for the beef industry and $167.5 million to $228 million for the pork industry, all of which never came true. “Producers and consumers cannot stand idly by and allow the packers and processors to make false, overblown claims about the costs of COOL,” Johnson says. “I urge farmers, ranchers and everyone who eats to submit comments in favor of the proposed COOL rule.” Comments must be received by April 11 and should be submitted electronically at www.regulations.com, or to Julie Henderson, Director; USDA, AMS, LPS, COOL Division; 1400 Independence Ave. SW, Room 2620-S; Washington, DC 20250; call 202-720-4486; or fax 202-260-4486.

Real money shimmer to get their attention, or at least to cause real change. In a recent article, Burke Teichert, who used to manage DeReiman seret Ranches, says, “I like to feel pretty secure that I will get back at least $1.50 for every $1 spent on direct inputs. This includes things like feeds, supplements and health care products.” When it comes to your farm or ranch, what is that threshold level for you? What’s worth it when you talk about making a switch? There are small tweaks that seem easy enough to implement and can add up, 50 cents here and a dollar there.

Profit possibilities

Some practices take a little more studying because they cost more, but the possibility for increased profit is clear. Take pour-on versus injectable dewormers, for example. Every study I’ve seen shows that the latter is more effective, but their price is higher. Although the economic re-

views prove its worth, you still have to take that leap and spend more to make more. But if you want to talk big dollars in the beef business, it might take more than this or that decision. Many cattlemen have made whole-herd management shifts. Those who see the growing demand from high-quality beef know it pays to aim their herd in that direction. Some of the changes don’t take more money. Some do. Some of them take more labor. Most do not. All of these producers started down this trail toward higher quality because of economics. They saw which cattle were earning premiums at the salebarn or they held onto at least some ownership of those calves through the feedyard. These cattlemen were motivated by real money. They invested in better genetics. Sometimes it’s just a matter of watching expected progeny differences more closely, but other times it meant paying up for a bull, switching suppliers or breeds. Perhaps it even meant trying artificial insemination for the first time to increase uniformity. Once they tuned up their starting material, the genetic base, it was all management. Where

could they improve herd health? What tweaks in nutrition might make a difference? The list goes on and on. Cattle-Fax recently predicted that beef prices will reach record highs this year, not all good news on the consumer side unless they always find the experience is worth the price. An extra $1 per pound in the meat case is enough to make some consumers walk away, especially if they have been disappointed. But if they feel confident in the consistent quality, most will stay with a premium brand. The “premium” in premium Choice beef brands has consistently meant price rewards of at least $40 per head. How much is enough for a producer to change course toward the premium? The prospect of it is certainly enough for a cattle feeder to bid up the better calves. Others say, “If you think that’s worth the effort, you should aim for Prime. That’s where the money is.” They know it, since many have regularly achieved 20 to 40 percent Prime grades, each earning about $200 more than a Select carcass in a grid-based marketing system. That’s real money. Editor’s Note: Reiman is assistant director of industry information for Certified Angus Beef LLC.

OPINION

A worthwhile investment

By Patrick Solon

The historic 2012 drought that wilted the corn and soybean fields of Illinois and other Midwest states was one of the costliest events to hit rural America in decades. As the nightly news reported, losses on farms in large swaths of the Midwest were staggering, with some farmers having such low yields that harvesting was a waste of time. I feel like I live in an oasis. The drought and heat wave that crippled farmers in neighboring counties and nearby states somehow spared my farm and a few others in north-central Illinois. I don’t know if it’s where the farm is located, the soil it sits on or just the luck of the draw in getting a few rain showers here and there, but somehow, I was spared. This makes me feel lucky, on one hand, since I did not face the dread of losing my crops, but guilty on the other hand because so many other farmers did. In past years, a disaster on this level would have triggered a massive ad hoc disaster bill in Congress, which would have given every farmer in Illinois —

and most other Midwest states, including farmers like me who had a good crop — federal disaster assistance. This approach to farm disasters is not only expensive for taxpayers but wastes money by offering a “one-size-fits-all” remedy. Forty-two such emergency disaster bills in agriculture have cost taxpayers $70 billion since 1989. That’s an expensive, cumbersome and untargeted approach to managing natural disasters.

Insurance incentive

Realizing that fact, Congress, in the mid-1990s, decided to encourage farmers to purchase crop insurance by offering them a discount on their premiums if they did so. The idea was that if crop insurance was affordable and widely available, farmers already would have insurance in place when a natural disaster strikes. It worked. 2011 saw an unprecedented string of natural disasters, an early freeze, floods, droughts, wildfires and hurricanes. 2012 saw the worst drought in decades. Despite these calamities, Congress wasn’t pressured for a major farm disaster bill, because more than 86 percent of planted farmland was protected by crop insurance in 2012.

Crop insurance fits nation’s fiscal reality

That’s why I buy crop insurance every year to protect my farm, my family and my investment. Crop insurance is a public-private partnership that has become this nation’s new hybrid approach to risk management and taxpayers don’t pay out all of the losses when disaster strikes. Private insurance companies take a hit and farmers fund much of the payments through premiums paid out of their own pockets. And farmers are happy to fork over more than $4 billion annually because they love crop insurance. First, farmers sit down with their crop insurance agents and design and purchase their own plans, tailored specifically to their farms, their crops and their comfort with risk. This gives farmers some peace of mind when things go awry. When disaster strikes and there is a verifiable loss, crop insurance indemnities are managed and delivered by private sector companies, usually arriving within 30 days of a claim being finalized. Large disaster bills — such as the Hurricane Sandy relief bill — took three months to pass Congress and will take months more to get help into the hands of the victims. I started buying crop insurance about 11 years ago, because in farming, the

costs of the inputs are so high that you have to have some kind of backup plan in place. In addition, most of the farmers I know have to borrow operating loans every year from banks, which often require crop insurance as collateral for the loan. Consumers should like crop insurance, too. Availability of a safe, affordable and healthy food supply requires the presence of some form of disaster protection for farmers, who increasingly face wild weather patterns that challenge the food production system. In the U.S., the ability for farmers to purchase crop insurance is actually this nation’s “insurance policy” against widespread food shortages or sharp price hikes in food products. I sleep a heck of a lot better at night because I know I have crop insurance coverage. If I have a major loss, I know I have a backup plan. I certainly won’t make any money off of my insurance indemnity, but I also won’t lose the farm. And if I’m lucky enough to not have a loss, I collect nothing other than the proceeds from selling my crop — which is the way the market is supposed to work. Editor’s Note: Solon is a corn and soybean farmer from Streator, Ill.

Just click ‘I agree’

OWNER, N.D. — I’ve always felt fortunate on our ranch and around our neighborhood that I’ve been able to do most of our business based on a handshake. I can sell cattle, trade help with a neighbor and hire myself out for a Cowboy Logic after dinner speech, and do it all with a handshake. No need for “the party of the first part” to sign and notarize an ironclad contract with “the party of the second part.” Sure, there’re plenty of exceptions. I have to sign a note at the bank for an operating loan, I sign something every time I change my cellular phone plan, and I have to sign plenty of other stuff in a variety of places from courthouses to hospitals. We don’t get to sign our own birth certificate or death certificate, but most everything in between will have a line and a flag that says “sign here.” I don’t mind signing those documents, but, to me, it’s secondary to the fact that you already said you were going to do what you said you were going to do, and your word should be worth more than the contract. Of course, these days, you can’t always look someone in the eye and give them your word, or shake their paw, or even sign their contract if they so insist. It happens regularly on the computer screen before my eyes as I download software, or update some program, and for that purpose the lawyers of those businesses have invented the “clickwrap.” A clickwrap is not like Christmas wrap, it’s not like Snoop Doggy Dog rap. They say it’s kind of like shrink wrap, but different. If you go to a store, buy software and crack open the plastic shrinkwrap, you’ve just agreed to all the terms of use whether you know it or not. When you’re downloading online there’s no shrinkwrap, so you have clickwrap. Just read the twelve pages of scrolling fine print and click “I agree.” Or, if you’re like me, read the first five words, fast forward to the bottom, and click “I agree.” I sometimes wonder just what it is that I agreed to. It’s all in lawyer speak, though, and it reminds me of what cowboy thinker Will Rogers said back in 1935. “The minute you read something and you can’t understand it you can almost be sure that it was drawn up by a lawyer. Then if you give it to another lawyer to read and he don’t know just what it means, why then you can be sure it was drawn up by a lawyer. If it’s in a few words and is plain and understandable only one way, it was written by a non-lawyer.” I don’t know if anyone reads this stuff, but we all agree to it. I looked at one just for fun and read one of the lines written all in capital letters toward the end. Someone told me when you type in all caps it’s like shouting, so this is what it shouted. “UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL COMPANY BE LIABLE TO USER OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES FOR ANY MATTER ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE OR THE INTERNET GENERALLY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION …” ... blah, blah, bla-bla-blah. I could go on, and it did, for 118 all-capped words in a single sentence (where’s their editor?) but I won’t. If you want to use their software, just click “I agree,” even if you don’t, I guess. And, if you want to feel a little better about your fellow man, or woman, sell your calves, trade work with your neighbor and hire your Cowboy Logic after dinner speakers with a handshake. As I’ve heard it said, if a fella comes to do business with you and has to bring his lawyer, well, look out!

LATEST NEWS SD Agriculture Department helps beginning farmers

■ PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Agriculture Depart-

ment says it can help beginning farmers buy land at lower interest rates through a bond program. The Beginning Farmer Bond program works through a local bank to finance a land purchase. The bond program allows a lender to get tax-exempt interest for a loan or contract sale, and that lowers the interest rate paid by a beginning farmer. To take part in the program, a beginning farmer must be a South Dakota resident at least 18 years old and have a net worth of less than $400,000. The maximum amount of a beginning farmer bond is $501,100 for calendar year 2013. The South Dakota Agriculture Department administers the program through the Value-Added Finance Authority board, which reviews applications and issues bonds for approved projects.

Charges possible after 100 cattle found dead in ND county

■ BISMARCK, N.D. – Prosecutors are considering crimi-

nal charges against the owner of 100 cattle found dead last week in North Dakota’s McIntosh County, at least some of which starved to death. Logan County State’s Attorney Gerald Kuhn said March 19 it is too early in the investigation to say if criminal charges will be filed, but autopsies on three of the animals showed they died from starvation. Kuhn says there are more cattle in the owner’s possession, many in poor shape and others in good condition. “We’re concerned with the cattle right now – making sure they’re getting what they need” in terms of appropriate nutrition, Kuhn says. “We’re not so concerned with whether we’re going to prosecute.” He says a check by the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Department on March 19 showed there were bales of hay and water available to the cattle, but it appeared the hay didn’t support the animals’ nutritional needs. Susan Keller, the state veterinarian, said March 19 that her office began working with the county’s sheriff’s department March 11 on an investigation prompted by an

anonymous tipster. She said multiple species were involved. The investigation comes in the wake of the pending case against Bill Kiefer, a Fargo investment executive and financial adviser who faces charges in Morton County District Court that are connected to the death of 96 horses, donkeys and mules found on his land, along with the seizure of another 119 malnourished animals. He faces similar misdemeanor charges in Burleigh County, where 38 of Kiefer’s horses were also seized and three discovered dead. “For us to be dealing with two back-to-back cases, it’s ironic, especially given that it’s in this legislative session, with the bill” prohibiting animal cruelty now under consideration by the Legislature, Keller says. The pending bill would make animal cruelty a felony in the state. In the case in McIntosh County – a sparsely populated county southwest of Jamestown on the South Dakota border – Kuhn says an insurance claim was filed by the owner and the insurance company investigated the claim. “In my opinion, if the owner had starved them to death, the insurance company would have said something,” he says. Kuhn says initial reports indicated that dogs had chased the cows into a barn on the property, where they suffocated and died. “I need more than what I’ve got,” to make a decision about prosecuting Kuhn says.

OMA says Canada must address antibiotic use in farming

■ TORONTO – The Ontario Medical Association wants the federal and provincial governments of Canada to crack down on antibiotic use in farming. The organization is issuing a call to arms on the problem of antibiotic resistance, warning the world is in danger of losing these drugs because of misuse. A policy paper drafted by the OMA says Ontario should ban the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in food animal production. Many more tons of the drugs are used in agricultural operations than in human medicine and experts say the practice is fuelling development of resistance. OMA President Doug Weir says Canada has been slower off the mark to act to protect antibiotics than countries in Europe and the United States.

A l l We l d e d S t e e l

For instance, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has barred the disease prevention use of a class of antibiotics called cephalosporins in animal production, but the practice is not banned in Canada. Weir says Canadians do not appear to understand that if antibiotic use isn’t curbed, the world faces a future in which some infections will be incurable. “This is a serious problem. We have to take serious action,” Weir says. The position paper suggests access to antibiotics for agricultural operations should be limited to cases where veterinarians write prescriptions for the drugs. And both Ontario and the federal government should close legal loopholes that allow farmers to import large quantities of the drugs for use in their operations without surveillance or regulation. On the human health side, the OMA suggests Ontario should establish an independent institution that would use the latest scientific evidence to advise doctors on when and how to best prescribe antibiotics for their patients. The organization is also calling on the federal government to fund research and educational campaigns on the issue of antibiotic awareness.

Briefly . . .

■ Mistreatment charges: A New Salem, N.D., man ac-

cused of mistreating horses and mules has pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges in Burleigh County. Bill Kiefer earlier this month pleaded not guilty to similar charges in neighboring Morton County. Authorities seized more than 150 animals from Kiefer’s properties in the two counties in January after finding nearly 100 dead animals. Most of the seized animals have been adopted. ■ Honey production: North Dakota leads the nation in the production of honey for a ninth consecutive year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says North Dakota honey production last year from producers with five or more colonies totaled 34.2 million pounds, up 5 percent from the previous year. Prices for the 2012 crop averaged $1.89 per pound, the highest on record. The total value of the North Dakota honey crop was $64.6 million, up 18 percent over – Agweek Wire Reports the year.

REGIONAL NEWS

Area farmers raise crop insurance coverage levels

Greater protection

By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

Area crop insurance agents are breathing a little easier. Many area farmers, for their part, are paying a little more for crop insurance than they did in 2012, while other producers are paying a little less. March 15 was the deadline for purchasing or modifying crop insurance for most spring-planted crops. In the two weeks leading up to the deadline, crop insurance agents put in long hours helping clients finalize their insurance plans for the upcoming growing season. With most of the Upper Midwest gripped by drought, “farmers definitely are interested in protecting themselves,” says Michael Kozojed, an agent with Ihry Insurance in Hillsboro, N.D. The possibility that commodity prices could decline sharply also affected farmers’ desire for insurance, he says. Given both yield and price risk, “I

think everybody is taking the opportunity to buy as much risk protection as they can,” Kozojed says. He and others say that farmers on balance increased their coverage level this year, often from 70 to 75 percent to 75 to 85 percent. Higher coverage levels give farmers more protection, but at a greater cost. With federally subsidized crop insurance, a farmer growing an insurable crop selects a level of coverage and pays a portion of the premium; the payment increases as the level of coverage rises. The government pays the rest of the premium. In 2012, the federal government paid, on average, 62 percent of the premium, according to information from the Congressional Research Service. Crop insurance premiums are based on historical loss rates, says the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency, which administers federal crop insurance. Here are the average statewide changes in yield protection premiums for the Upper Midwest, according to RMA. Keep in mind that the numbers are averages: ■ Wheat — North Dakota, 8 percent increase; South Dakota, 10 percent in-

crease; Minnesota, 10 percent decrease; Montana, 14 percent decrease. ■ Corn — North Dakota, 11 percent increase; South Dakota, 15 percent increase; Minnesota, 3 percent decrease; Montana, 12 percent decrease. ■ Soybeans —North Dakota, 2 percent increase; South Dakota, 2 percent increase; Minnesota, 4 percent decrease. The increases in wheat and corn premiums reflect production problems in recent years, including widespread prevented planting in 2011, in the Dakotas. Nationally in 2013, the average wheat premium rose 4 percent, with soybeans dropping 6 percent on average and the average corn premium staying about the same.

Different approach

In 2011, the RMA began what it calls a “phased-in” approach, which limits year-to-year changes in an effort to keep premiums relatively stable and farmers’ rates predictable. That approach limited the impact of widespread drought last year on 2013 premiums. “The good news is the government doesn’t come and say to farmers, actuarially we need to increase your rates 50

percent next year,” says Dan Weber, a Casselton, N.D., crop insurance agent. “The bad news is, it (premiums) might increase 2 percent to 8 percent every year,” he says. Weber says many of his clients continue to pay more for land, fuel and other expenses, including crop insurance. “It seems like they’re not getting further ahead,” despite high crop prices, he says. Federal crop insurance is increasingly important, given the likelihood that budget problems will lead to less funding for other ag programs, Kozojed says. Crop insurance has seen many changes through the year, but on balance has improved, he says. “It’s a program they’ve tweaked for so many years. I think they’ve really found the sweet spot.” Kozojed says. Weber, national director for the Professional Insurance Agents of North Dakota, says he and others in his organization will be in Washington, D.C., next month to discuss crop insurance and other industry issues with regulators and elected officials. “It’ll be interesting to see the pulse in Washington, D.C., this year,” he says.

Despite volatile corn prices and the elimination of federal ethanol subsidies more than a year ago, Thorpe says his plant and others in the region are likely to make money. He says 2013 is already looking good, but volatile. He expects stable profits in the next two years if drought doesn’t push corn prices to more than $10 a bushel, and if ethanol fuel mandates remain in place. “The future looks very good for good-operating plants, in good locations around the countryside,” Thorpe says.

Improving margins?

fore interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EDITBA.) As renewable fuels mandates increased, petroleum blenders figured out they could get an octane enhancement through the use of ethanol. Thorpe says many blenders refined their gas manufacturing to a rating of 84 octane level, and then mixed to get to the minimum 87 octane rating for retail. Ethanol is the cheapest form of octane enhancement. The Tharaldson factory produces E98, or pure alcohol, at an octane level of 113. Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), another oxygenate, has been phased out because of environmental reasons. The next closest octane-enhancer costs $8 a gallon, while straight ethanol costs about $2.50 a gallon. Refiners “get a couple more gallons of gasoline out of every barrel of oil they process,” Thorpe says. “It’s very prof-

down for a variety of reasons. Gasoline demand peaked in 2007 at about 140 billion gallons in the U.S. and has declined annually. Today, the U.S. is burning only 132 billion gallons, partly from the recession and partly from improved vehicle gas efficiency. The U.S. has imported Brazilian ethanol. The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act set ethanol use goals at 36 billion gallons by 2022. The U.S. currently manufacturers 13.8 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol. This ethanol mandate was instituted to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil supplies, but the U.S. still imports $1 billion in oil a day, or a total of $360 billion per year. Ethanol margins perked up in early March, to levels not seen in the previous year, Thorpe says. This is partly because of the effect of plant shutdowns in 2012, and partly because of ethanol mandates, which increase by 600 million gallons per year.

orth Dakota has four operating ethanol plants with a rated capacity of about 400 million gallons per year, and that’s set to grow, according to the North Dakota Ethanol Council. The council was founded in 2009, and is funded by a check-off of three-one-hundredths of a cent assessment on ethanol produced and sold in North Dakota. The money is used primarily for promotion, educational programs and market development. Ethanol producers are a major user of corn in the state. Hankinson Renewexcess supply of RINS. “Being they knew this was coming in 2009, 2010 and 2011, they blended in excess of the mandated amounts,” Thorpe says. “The EPA [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency] allows you to carry forward up to 20 percent of what you blended each year, but you can only carry it

able Energy uses about 50 million bushels; the Blue Flint plant in Underwood, N.D., and the Red Trail Energy plant in Richardton, N.D., each use about 20 million to 22 million bushels. A Dakota Spirit AgEnergy LLC ethanol plant has been approved in Spiritwood, N.D., which would take 23 million bushels. The Cargill-leased (ProGold LLC) corn fructose plant in Wahpeton, N.D., takes about 30 million bushels per year. North Dakota corn production increased from 216.3 million bushels in 2011 to 422.1 million bushels in 2012, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service. So that means processing plants in the state handle about the same number of bushels that the entire state grows. forward one year. The ethanol I make this year has a shelf life — the RIN — for 2013 and 2014.” Even though blenders have 2.6 billion gallons of excess RINS built up, they’re still paying $1.10 per RIN, so they don’t fall short and have to pay penalties.

Continued from Page 11 Thorpe thinks the solution is to increase ethanol content in gasoline from the current E10 standard to E15. Thorpe says petroleum companies are averse to blending E15, even though the EPA has approved its use for cars that are 2010 and newer — 80 percent of the car fleet today. “They don’t want to do it because they’re giving up another 5 percent of their market share,” he says. “When ExxonMobil makes $10 billion a quarter, 5 percent is a big number to give up.” Ethanol on March 15 was trading at $2.62 per gallon on the Chicago Board of Trade, and gasoline was at $3.16 per gallon. That’s a 54-cent-per-gallon discount. If the industry misses its mandate by only 1.3 percent in 2015, the penalty would be astronomical. Thorpe doesn’t think that’s going to happen, because the fine is too big, and because the blenders will switch to E15.

What is efficient?

Thorpe says ethanol plants are becoming more efficient. He defines “efficient” production as anything around 2.8 gallons of ethanol per bushel and above. Initial plants were 2.5 gallons per bushel. On the energy consumption side (natural gas or coal), today’s efficient plants produce ethanol with 27,000 million Btus (MMBtus) per gallon

! Rhett Widdon, a control room operator (seated) monitors ethanol production at Tharaldson Ethanol’s plant in Casselton, N.D., March 15. and below, compared with 32,000 MMBtus. Ingredients — chemicals and enzymes — now are 8 cents a gallon, compared with 10 to 12 cents in the past. Thorpe reckons his plant is among the top third in the nation. He says independent, unbiased university studies show a ratio from 1.5-to-1 up to 3-1 of energy produced to energy used to make it. “My whole take on that is even if it were 11, it’s local jobs, products that are from here, the end products are used here. It’s a big cycle, it’s American made. We’re not sending $1 billion overseas then,” he says. North Dakota is in a prime place to succeed in ethanol production, Thorpe says.

In 2012, a year that had the biggest drought in the U.S. since 1956, North Dakota raised a record corn crop. “Not only was it a record, it was double what we did in 2011,” he says. “Farmers planted 50 percent more acres and we had an improved yield. We like to think of ourselves as the new Corn Belt up here. Acres will continue to grow. We can process a good majority of them right here in the state, and it’s value-added.”

Marketing security

Clifford (N.D.) Farmers Coop Elevator Co. procures 100 percent of the Tharaldson plant’s corn needs. Two of the co-op’s employees — Keith Finney and Brad Kjar — have

offices in the ethanol plant. Farmers have the security of selling to “one of the strongest co-ops in North Dakota” and getting a dividend back, Thorpe says. It takes about 2 minutes to dump a truck and the plant handles up to 400 semis in an eight-hour period. Tharaldson Ethanol has 6.8 million bushels of storage. All of the corn at the facility is owned by Clifford until it crosses the bulkway. About 75 percent of the corn comes by truck and 25 percent comes by rail. About 95 percent of the plant’s needs come from within 60 miles away. Tharaldson has a $5 million grain warehouse bond — the largest in the state of North Dakota, Thorpe says. “That’s for the protection of Clifford. I pay for my corn three times a week, so I’m never in excess of that warehouse bond. We’d like to think that farmers selling to Tharaldson Ethanol have more protection than any elevator in the state.” Historically, about 80 percent of Tharaldson Ethanol’s revenues are from ethanol. The other 20 percent is from dried distillers grains. (With higherpriced corn, the DDGs can account for 25 percent of revenues.) The plant produces enough DDGs to serve those needs for 250,000 head of feeder cattle per day. That’s considerably more cattle than are available in the local region. About 97 percent of the high-energy distillers grains are dried from 68 to 10 percent moisture and shipped around the nation and

world, primarily Texas and Montana in the U.S. Much of the rest goes to Mexico and Canada. The plant takes about 3,500 tons of wet distillers grains and dries it to about 1,000 tons of DDGs.

Significant impact Beyond the corn, Tharaldson Ethanol is a significant economic engine, Thorpe says. The plant employs 54 people and has a payroll of just more than $4.5 million. The plant produces numerous indirect jobs, including in trucking. The factory uses 1 million gallons of water a day — about 7 percent of Fargo’s wastewater production — all treated and piped 26 miles to the plant. “It’s so clean that we have to add salt to our boiler,” Thorpe says. “We send back gray water to them, they treat it and discharge it into the river just like they do all the other water.” The plant consumes 12 megawatts of power per day, compared to about 5 megawatts for the city of Casselton, a town of about 2,000 people. The plant uses 11,500 dekatherms of natural gas, making it one of the largest single point users of either energy source in the state. “It’s very positive as long as the rules don’t get changed,” Thorpe says. “We can make ‘gas’ cheaper than the oil companies can. It’s renewable. It’s jobs, right here. It’s all U.S. products — home grown, is what we like to say.”

REGIONAL NEWS SDSU students experience Argentine agriculture

■ BROOKINGS, S.D. – This winter, 21 stu-

dents from South Dakota State University’s College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences traveled to Argentina to learn about agriculture in South America and glean a global perspective of the industry. “This trip really opened my eyes,” says student Alex Hohertz. “I realized that the way we do things in the U.S. isn’t necessarily the right way, or best way. It taught me that if things aren’t working out the way they’ve always been done, I can always try something different.” Providing students with a new perspective on the industry of agriculture and life outside of the U.S. is the primary focus of the trip, says Julie Walker, SDSU Extension beef specialist and co-instructor of the ABS 482/582 class. “We work in a global economy. For those of us in the agriculture industry, it’s no longer just what is going on in the U.S. that impacts us,” Walker says. “Students need to understand how other countries impact agriculture in South Dakota and the U.S.” This was the seventh year in a row that SDSU students have traveled to Argentina to tour agriculture operations –

dairies, feedlots, row-crop farms – and historical sites, such as the Pink House, Recoleta Cemetery to visit Eva Peron’s Tomb, La Boca and Old Market Place. The trip teaches students about the culture, politics and markets of Argentina. Before gaining a first-hand perspective of Argentina, the students enroll in a semester-long class, ABS 482/582, which is an interactive class where students teach each other about various aspects of Argentina through class presentations on the culture, politics, farming and ranching practices and history of the land and its people. Walker and her co-instructor, Stacy Scramlin, assistant professor of animal science, also invite speakers from Argentina to visit with the students and answer questions. Although most of the students who went on the tour were agriculture majors, the group was diverse and made up of students pursuing degrees in agronomy, dairy science, animal science, geography, economics, general agriculture and agriculture leadership.

TJ Technologies releases liquid fertilizer

■ With the extremely dry August and September last year, growers are concerned

■ WATERTOWN, S.D. – TJ Technologies

Inc., an agricultural company based in Wa-

tertown, S.D., has introduced Challenge 2050 Liquid Fertilizer with mycorrhizae to its product line. The new product is available for corn and soybeans in the 2013 crop year. In independent, multiple-location replicated field trials, Challenge 2050 returned a positive yield response with a low product use rate of one quart per acre. It can be applied as a supplement to a starter or pop-up fertilizer program or with water alone. Challenge 2050 is a co-packaged two-component system consisting of a liquid nutrient component and a liquid microbial/mycorrhizae additive. Challenge 2050 has been proven in field trials to increase root growth and the mycorrhizal hyphae are known to become an extension of the root. The external hyphae of mycorrhizae found in Challenge 2050 facilitate a process that increases the transport of water and nutrients from the soil and feeds them directly into the plant or stores them for later use. The mycorrhizae component provides a multitude of proven benefits to corn and soybean plants including enhanced water utilization and increased phosphate and nitrogen uptake. – Agweek Wire Reports

Golden Growers total payout hits milestone ■

Distributions surpass original investments

By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

MOORHEAD, Minn. — As of February, cash distributions for owners of Golden Growers Cooperative, a high-fructose corn sweetener plant in Wahpeton, N.D., surpassed the $3.45 per unit that farmers originally invested to build the plant in 1995. At the Golden Growers annual meeting in Moorhead, Minn., on March 21, co-op officials reported earnings per share increased to 36 cents last year, up from 34 cents per share in 2011. Equity has declined to $42.7 million from $46.6 million, but that’s by design. Fargo-based Golden Growers is a 49 percent owner of ProGold LLC with American Crystal Sugar Co. of Moorhead. Fifteen years ago, the two companies leased the plant to Cargill, which now processes about 30 million bushels of corn into corn fructose at the location. About half of the corn comes from Golden Growers members. “Our distributions to members has increased our income, which has reduced our equity in the cooperative over time, but we didn’t need the cash in our accounts, so (we’ve decided to) get it out to our members,” says Scott Stofferahn executive vice president of Golden Growers. “We are thankful that we have a corn plant in a very advantageous corn market,” Stofferahn says. “Last year, we had drought in the Midwest. A lot of those plants were struggling” with the high price of corn,

Mikkel Pates, Agweek

! Owen Wagner, senior agricultural economist at LMC International, Raleigh-Durham, N.C., speaks at the Golden Growers Cooperative annual meeting on March 21 in Moorhead, Minn. while North Dakota production increases have outpaced usage. Golden Growers officials noted that corn production has tripled in the 11-county area around Wahpeton since the plant was built. The keynote speaker at the Golden Growers annual meeting was Owen Wagner, senior agricultural economist at LMC International, Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and one of the nation’s top sweetener market analysts. Wagner says U.S. high-fructose corn syrup markets are declining, but there are reasons to be optimistic. Among Wagner’s key points: ■ HFCS-55 (high-fructose corn sweetener contain-

ing 55 percent fructose, and the usual form added to drinks and foods in the U.S.) demand started to fall in the early 2000s. It was linked to a 20 percent per capita decline in soft drink consumption in the past 10 years. ■ Demand in the U.S. continues to decline, but the “pace of the decline is decelerating.” Some products that shifted away from sugar to HFCS have shifted back, partly because of high sugar prices in the past three years. Cool Whip, a product produced by Kraft, switched back in 2011, and Hunt’s ketchup switched back in 2012. ■ Market growth for American HFCS producers is outside of the U.S., led by Mexico. In the past three years, U.S. exports to Mexico exceeded 1 million tons a year. “In 2013, we’re actually ahead of that pace” for exports to Mexico, Wagner says. “Amazingly enough, Mexico is facing a record sugar crop. Prices are falling and still they can’t get enough of this stuff.” ■ High world prices also have prompted HFCS capacity expansion overseas. Countries that export grains and import sugar are in the best position to expand HFCS production. The U.S. imports sugar but its HFCS sector is “mature,” Wagner says. The European Union and Russia could increase HFCS production. The EU’s Common Agricultural Policy is limited to 700,000 tons annually of HFCS, but that could change in 2015 and 2016. “If the Europeans change their portfolio of sweeteners and mimic the way that we consume sweeteners as Americans,” their demand could increase to 7 million tons. “We’re talking about a potential 10-fold increase in corn syrup production in the EU, and your partner Cargill is aware of this, and they have interests in Europe, in Russia, as well,” Wagner says. “There is a lot of interest in entering into this untapped market.”

A canola processing plant in Hallock, Minn., is finishing up its first year of operation — and laying the regulatory foundation for possible expansion. The Northstar Agri Industries plant, which began operations in May 2012, now processes 1,000 tons of canola daily. It has submitted applications for air and water permits that would allow it to process up to 2,000 tons daily. “We don’t have any specific near-term plans to do anything significant at the plant,” says Neil Juhnke, president and chief operating officer of Fargo, N.D.based Northstar Agri Industries. “However, I will say the plant has proven itself capable of running at 1,200 tons per day,” he says. The company needed to renew its permits this year anyway, and decided to include applications for expansion along with its renewal applications. State regulators appreciate when such applications are combined, Juhnke says. In its first year, the plant met, and in some cases exceeded, its goals for operations, production and product quality, Juhnke says. In the past year, however, market prices for canola “have been historically high, and that has had a negative impact on margins,” he says. Juhnke says he can’t comment on the company’s profitability or cash flow, but that demand for its products remains strong.

Healthy product

Canola seeds — similar in size to poppy seeds — are crushed to produce oil, which has a reputation for being healthy, and meal, generally fed to cattle and pigs. Canada is the world’s leading producer of canola. North Dakota is the dominant U.S. producer of the crop, which also is grown in northwest Minnesota. The Northstar plant is two miles south of Hallock, a farm town of 980 in extreme northwest Minnesota, near both Canada and North Dakota. The Hallock plant gets about half of its canola from Canada and about half from the U.S., primarily North Dakota. Canola production in northwest Minnesota, though relatively small, is expected to increase, in part because of the Hallock plant’s presence, Juhnke says. Additional funding for canola research in northwest Minnesota also is expected to increase canola acreage there, he says. Northstar Agri Industries is promoting canola as a crop that can be grown in rotation with other crops, particularly winter wheat, he says. Last June and July, the Hallock plant received so-called winter canola by rail car from Oklahoma. Winter canola typically is planted in late summer or early fall and harvested the next spring. More winter canola is expected to arrive at the Hallock plant this summer, Juhnke says. “It’s a classic case of buying what for them is new-crop canola during a time when we’re in old-crop processing. We’re going to be procuring it (winter canola) under harvest conditions at very advantageous prices. That’s really what makes it possible,” Juhnke says of bringing the crop to Minnesota for processing. Information: www.northstaragri.com.

Questioning safety

Proposed horse slaughter facility has history of cattlerelated complaints ■

By Stephanie Strom

New York Times News Service

Now contracting new crop: corn, soybeans and wheat New shuttle loader ready for 2013 harvest DOYON: 398-3512 | TOLNA: 262-4242

The New Mexico company seeking to become the first slaughterhouse for horses in the United States since 2007 drew complaints in a two-year period from federal food safety inspectors and state regulatory authorities over its disposal of animal remains when it processed cattle for beef. The complaints raise questions about whether the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees meat processing, will approve the company’s application. Under the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the grounds around a meat processing plant “must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product or interfere with inspection.” Catherine Cochran, a spokeswoman for USDA, says the department could not comment on pending applications. The complaints included a 2010 letter to state health officials from an Agriculture Department inspector reporting that piles of animal remains were up to 15 feet high along the back property line of the plant. “I am told that during fly season the pile literally moves due to maggots,” wrote Ron C. Nelson, the district manager for the department’s Food Safety Inspection Service in Denver, who took pictures of what he saw. A. Blair Dunn, a lawyer for the company, Valley Meat, says many of the complaints — which were documented in emails and letters obtained by Front Range Equine Rescue, an advocacy group that opposes horse slaughter — were false. “These groups have been saying all of these horrible things about my clients, and none of it was ever true,” Dunn says. “If you’re trying to make a point and keep something from opening, you have to be a little sensational.” He says the owners of the company in Roswell, N.M., Sarah and Ricardo de los Santos, had been struggling financially because of the sharp drop in beef cattle prices in the past three years and could not afford to have the compost

and other waste hauled from the facility. In an email, Dunn said there were never any environmental concerns or health hazards at the site. However, Auralie Ashley-Marx, chief of the solid waste bureau of the New Mexico Environment Department, called Dunn’s assessment “factually inaccurate,” saying that after three inspections of the site in 2010, the department had issued a “notice of violation” listing Valley Meat’s failure to register as a composting facility and to dispose of waste properly, as well as the improper composting of internal organs and entrails.

Disputing findings

In describing the series of events involving Valley Meat, Ashley-Marx says her department’s inspections were prompted by the letter Nelson of the inspection service sent to the New Mexico health department on Jan. 22, 2010, after a visit he had made to the plant that month. “Approximately 200 yards behind the facility, Mr. de los Santos drags dead cattle (mostly old dairy cows) and piles them on a concrete pad where he leaves them to rot,” Nelson wrote. “He calls it composting, but by all appearances, rotting would be more accurate.” Nelson says his concern was that materials that could cause bovine spongiform encephalitis, known commonly as mad cow disease, could find their way into the soil and feed. Dunn disputes Nelson’s findings, saying, “Let’s get the facts straight — there never was this mountain of dead, rotting animals.” He adds that his clients had been working with state officials to remove the remains. Ashley-Marx says she had not seen any carcasses either when she and a colleague visited the site about four months after Nelson wrote his letter. But she says the agency had identified other problems. The company did not have state permission to compost its waste materials and did not know how to compost animal tissue properly, a method called mortality composting. Wrangling between the company and state and federal officials over permits and proper waste disposal of animal carcasses continued until last August, when New Mexico officials fined Valley Meat $86,400, the maximum penalty it can impose. The fine was later reduced to $5,000, after the company attracted new investors who helped it pay to clear the animal compost piles off its site.

New York Times News Service

From the potato fields of Michigan to the high prairies of Kansas, farmers are receiving record prices for their land — but economists and banking regulators warn this boom, like so many before it, could end badly. Across the American heartland, farmland prices are soaring. In places such as Waco, Neb., and Chickasaw County, Iowa, where the boom-and-bust cycle of farming reaches deep into the psyche, some families are selling the land that they have worked for generations, to cash in while they can. Behind the rush is the age-old driver of farm booms: high crop prices. Corn, in particular, has been soaring, reflecting demand overseas and, domestically, for ethanol. High prices mean good profits for farmers and many are using their growing incomes to bid for land. Sensing opportunity, investment firms are buying, too. David Taylor, of Oskaloosa, Kan., says that he was saddened to sell his family’s farm, but that the prices were too good to resist. Four generations had planted corn and soybeans on the 146-acre spread. But after living through the Midwest farm crisis of the 1980s, when land values plunged, and realizing that his chil-

dren would not follow in his footsteps, he sold the farm at auction in December. “I bawled like a baby,” Taylor, 59, says. His crop-producing fields sold for $10,100 an acre. In Iowa, despite the drought last year, farmland prices have nearly doubled since 2009, to an average $8,296 an acre, far surpassing the last boom’s peak in 1979. In Nebraska, the price of irrigated land has also doubled since 2009. But if the price of corn falls — and many forecasters predict it will, particularly if the ethanol boom wanes — the price of farmland will fall with it. While many farmers have borrowed little money or used cash to finance their purchases, those who have overexpanded could run into trouble, leaving banks and other creditors with their bad debts. “You can’t continue to see the price increases in land like we’ve been seeing. That’s just heading for trouble,” says Michael Duffy, an economist in farm management at Iowa State University.

Rising debt

Debt held by the nation’s farmers has risen nearly 30 percent since 2007, to

Investment firms, farmers vie for land

an expected $277.4 billion this year. The bulk of those loans were made by commercial banks, the farm credit system and the Farm Service Agency. Some regulators and critics say that figure is most likely undercounting debt from specialized finance institutions or credit extended by seed companies such as Monsanto and equipment manufacturers such as John Deere. While national data does not show sharp jumps in closely watched debt gauges, some analysts point to other data that reveal farm debts have already topped levels reached just before the farm crisis of the ’80s. Data that the Kansas Farm Management Association has collected from more than 1,300 farms in the state showed the amount of debt compared with the value of underlying assets had climbed to 25.5 percent at the end of 2011, slightly above where it stood in 1979. Regulators say it is difficult to determine exactly how much farm debt exists, because much of it involves debt owed to various vendors and suppliers. “In so many ways, we’re blind to some of that information,” says Jason Henderson, a vice president at the Omaha, Neb., branch of the Federal

Reserve Bank of Kansas City. In the meantime, large investors have been moving in. In November, an investment unit of the big Swiss bank UBS bought 9,800 acres of Wisconsin farmland for $68 million, a purchase first reported by Farmland Investor Letter. The financial services firm TIAA-CREF is managing a $4 billion fund and now owns 600 farms — half of those in the United States, according to an executive there. But as prices soar, investors say it is becoming difficult to find bargains. “There are some opportunities out there, but man, it’s tough,” says Shonda Warner, a former Goldman Sachs trader who returned to her Midwest farm roots in 2006, when she started Chess Ag Full Harvest Partners, a private equity firm that specializes in farmland. Like many other investors, Warner’s fund buys land and then rents it to farmers. As land prices have risen sharply, so have rents. “I worry about people who are buying farmland and expecting to get big rents, $500 or even $600 in the Midwest,” Warner says. “What happens when corn prices fall next year and they can’t pay? What are you going to do? Take their television set?”

LOST THE ROMANCE IN MY LIFE 42 years old, 5’7”, 141 lbs I’m in great shape, have a successful career, and a great relationship with my ex. I have no real problem attracting men, but think I am just a magnet for the wrong type. I am looking for a gentle, sensitive type of guy - one who has a motorcycle, cooks a great barbeque, has friends and a good relationship with his parents. I love to have fun and am the life of the party. I love people! I have an adventurous spirit and have been bungee jumping in Jamaica, zip lining in Mexico. I also enjoy time to myself. I love to read and garden and deep down, I’m just a farm girl. I enjoy travelling, skiing, boating and life. I can see myself married with a man who is smart, caring, loving and respectful. Age doesn’t matter to me - he can be a lot older - but he needs to be passionate as I’m a loving lady.

55 years old, 5’6”, 120 lbs At 55, I have the same amount of energy I had when I was in my twenties. I am young at heart, take care of myself and have the means to travel. I am looking for a man who is in the same position as me. I’m easy going, very loyal and up for anything. I have raised my family (seen with my daughter in my photo), who are all happily married with children. There are many things in life I would like to try, but I don’t have anyone to do them with. I am active, slim, and don’t mind kicking my heels up every now and then. I love to cook and need a man with a hearty appetite.

Managing employees on the farm Seminars provide advice for handling workers

By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — As livestock and other farms get fewer and larger, farm owners often must attract and retain qualified farm help. Fourteen farmers recently attended a first-of-its-kind set of seminars in North Dakota on agriculture employment management. The seminars, held in Jamestown, were led by extension service staff in three states and focused on the general issues that affect agriculture — hiring, retaining, motivating and evaluating employees. The sessions were focused primarily on farms that employ 10 workers or more. The series started with a dairy clientele, but the people in Jamestown represented various kinds of farms — ranging from a seed cleaning company to beef feedlot and grain operations, as well as dairies. The workshop promised some confidentiality so participants would speak freely about their challenges and solutions. Tracey Renelt, a South Dakota State University Extension dairy specialist in Watertown, counseled the group about the value and technique of writing a proper job description and how to decide whether to hire the first person who walks through the door, among other topics.

Multi-state effort

J.W. Schroeder, North Dakota State University Extension dairy specialist from Fargo, said the workshop is a joint effort of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota Extension Service officials. The presenters are involved with the

I-29 Dairy Consortium, an informal gathering of extension service dairy specialists in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa. The consortium has identified training and retaining employees as one of the biggest challenges. In dairy and agriculture in general, operations must attract people who are interested in working in a more rigorous outdoor environment, and involve specialized mechanical or animal skills. “Unfortunately, they don’t have a labor commodity group they can turn to,” Schroeder said. “You want to learn more about wheat and dairy, you turn to the commodity groups and get information. How do we do that with employees?” Some of the participants declined to be identified by name, but some were open about the challenges they face. “We do train virtually everybody,” said Kent Swenson, owner of Dusty Willow Dairy LLP, who attended the seminar with his wife, Laurel. The farm milks about 800 cows and has 15 employees, about half of whom are local and half guest workers from other countries. “Unless they have experience in a dairy farm — a modern dairy farm — they’re going to need training. We just hope that when we train them, and they enjoy the job, that they stay with us. And for the most part, they do.” Some of the workshop topics involved how to work with employees of different cultures, including Hispanic employees — either Spanish-speaking Americans or guest workers from a different country. Some of the discussions involved how to manage, review and reward performance. Funding for the project was through the North Central Center Risk Management Education Center and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

FROM THE HILL

Deputy ag secretary leaving department ■

Doesn’t disclose future plans

By Jerry Hagstrom

Special to Agweek

WASHINGTON — Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan announced March 14 that she will be leaving the department. Merrigan is best known for developing the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative and her support for local and regional agriculture, but was distrusted by conventional and biotech agriculture groups. She did not say when she would leave or announce future plans. In a statement, Merrigan said, “Today I am announcing that I will be leaving USDA. I am grateful to President Obama for the opportunity to serve as Deputy Secretary and be part of his leadership team. I also want to thank the U.S. Senate for its unanimous confirmation and the many members of Congress, particularly Chairman Leahy, with whom I have worked closely to ensure support for USDA programs. “It has been an ambitious first term. From implementing the 2008 farm bill, improving school meals, expanding opportunities for American farmers, spending countless hours in the White House situation room, to shepherding USDA budgets through challenging times, it has been an honor to play a small part in history. “I hope that during my tenure, I was able to help open USDA’s doors a little

wider, inviting new and discouraged constituencies to participate in USDA programs. “With Secretary (Tom) Vilsack at the helm, aided by very talented and dedicated USDA employees, I am able to leave fully confident that, even in these difficult budget times, USDA will thrive and continue to improve its service to

the American people.” Vilsack issued a statement praising Merrigan’s service. Merrigan has “helped USDA achieve record results over the past four years. She has played a vital role in the departmentwide focus on the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative, as well as our efforts to achieve budget efficien-

cies and savings during an uncertain budget time. Deputy Secretary Merrigan has led USDA’s efforts to implement important regulations, and she has been an important advocate for a strong National Organic Program. I deeply appreciate her service, and I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

NATIONAL NEWS Dairy Focus Lab strengthens university ties with industry

■ URBANA, Ill. – The University of Illinois

has launched a website that is intended to serve as a tool for communicating with the dairy industry and the community at large. The site, dairyfocus.illinois.edu, presents the work of the Dairy Focus Lab, which was created in 2012. Research at Dairy Focus is conducted at the Dairy Cattle Research Unit and Teaching Center and at commercial dairy farms in Illinois. It is grounded in two major areas: mechanisms of metabolic adaptation from gestation to lactation in dairy cows (transition period), and impact of nutrition on metabolism, reproduction, and health in dairy cows. “We have the opportunity to collaborate and work on projects relating to these areas as well as the conjunction between them,” said assistant professor of animal sciences Phil Cardoso, head of the laboratory. “Our focus is on dairy cow nutrition, reproduction, and the results of its combination.” Both graduate and undergraduate students are involved with the research. The website is still in the process of development. The plan is for it to be in English and Spanish and serve as a center for resources such as publications, instructional videos and useful links. – Agweek Wire Report

Weather affects spring fieldwork

Cold and wet conditions to slow corn seedings ■

By Sam Nelson

Reuters

CHICAGO — Below-normal temperatures and wetter weather are expected in the U.S. crop belt over at least the next two weeks, which will help boost depleted soil moisture reserves, but also slow early spring fieldwork and corn plantings, according to agricultural meteorologist Don Keeney. “It looks like below-normal temperatures on into the first of April so there certainly won’t be much planting done,” says Keeney, meteorologist for MDA Weather Services. Keeney says low temperatures would range in the teens to 20s Fahrenheit across a broad swath of the Midwest corn and soybean growing region and in the U.S. Plains hard red winter wheat belt.

Dakotas

“There shouldn’t be any harm from winterkill. The coldest readings will be in the north where there is a protective snow cover,” he says. Commodity Weather Group on March 19 said the wettest areas in the next two weeks would be in the eastern Midwest region of the Ohio river valley, keeping soil moisture abundant for soft red winter wheat and ahead of corn seeding. “Cool temperatures will continue to slow soils from warming and will keep early seeding well behind last year’s abnormally fast pace,” says CWG meteorologist Joel Widenor. “Temperatures are unlikely to dip below winterkill thresholds in any parts of the Plains. Wheat areas in much of Kansas, Colorado and western Nebraska will benefit from rain and snow,” Widenor says. The condition of the hard red winter wheat crop in Kansas, the biggest U.S. wheat production state, has improved, but farmers are concerned about soil moisture levels, according to government reports. The Kansas wheat crop was rated

29 percent good to excellent as of March 17, up 2 percent from a week earlier, according to the Kansas field office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Most of the state received only light rain during the week and top soil moisture was rated 49 percent short or very short. In southern areas of the country, farmers were getting a fast start on spring planting. Corn seeding in Louisiana was 56 percent complete, up from 35 percent a year ago and well ahead of the five-year average for midMarch of 21 percent. Rice planting was 25 percent finished, compared with the five-year average of 8 percent and NASS’s Louisiana office said weather conditions were excellent. In Texas, 42 percent of the corn crop was planted, ahead of the fiveyear average of 33 percent. Wheat was rated 16 percent good to excellent and windy conditions have depleted some of the already sparse soil moisture.

Finding a fix for manure spills

■ A manure spill that reaches a nearby creek or river can

create a serious environmental hazard because it significantly boosts phosphorus loads in the water. Now scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and their research partners have determined how channel sediments capture and release manure phosphorus, and have identified strategies for reducing phosphorus loads from manure spills. Agricultural Research Service soil scientist Doug Smith and Shalamar Armstrong, who is now an assistant professor at Illinois State University, conducted several studies on the issue. Smith works at the ARS National Soil Erosion Research Laboratory in West Lafayette, Ind. The scientists collected sediments from two drainage ditches in Indiana’s Cedar Creek Watershed. They added the sediments to an artificial water channel and used swine manure minimally diluted with water to create their own worst-case manure “spill.” After 24 hours, they cleaned up the spill using standard remediation protocols. The researchers found the spill simulation initially resulted in an average dissolved phosphorus concentration of 5.57 milligrams per liter, as measured in a water column. The concentrations dropped to 0.19 to 0.21 milligrams per liter 24 hours later, but still exceeded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards for rivers, streams, and drainage ditches in the Cedar Creek Watershed. The scientists found that channel sediments initially adsorbed phosphorus from the water at rates ranging from 8.9 to 16.7 milligrams per square meter of sediment per hour. But after the simulated “cleanup,” all the sediments released phosphorus back into the water at rates that increased phosphorus loads to levels that exceeded EPA’s maximum acceptable levels by at least 67 percent. In another study, the researchers observed that amending the contaminated sediments with 1.6 milligrams of alum/calcium carbonate per gram of sediment suppressed phosphorus release in sandy sediments by 92 percent, and suppressed phosphorus release in clay loam and loamy sand sediments by 72 percent. Higher amendment levels suppressed phosphorus release in all three soil types by up to 100 percent.

Burn victim almost home ND farmer meets newborn daughter after waking up in hospital

By Bryan Horwath Forum News Service

After spending several weeks in a Colorado burn unit, a Stark County, N.D., man is back in North Dakota and could return home within days. After injuries sustained in a propane explosion at his farm just north of South Heart, Brian Chorne was flown to the Western States Burn Center in Greeley, Colo., where he spent more than two weeks under sedation. Unable to speak until about a week ago (partly from a trachea), Chorne said March 19 from Sanford Health Continuing Care Center off Collins in Mandan, N.D., that he’s ready to head home soon, possibly as early as next week. “I feel good,” Chorne said. “Everything’s healing up pretty good. I’m making progress every day. Hopefully, I’ll be back at home very soon.” It was estimated that close to 80 percent of the middle portion of Chorne’s body was burned, although most of the wounds were classified as second-degree burns, Chorne said. When he finally woke up last month, Chorne said he was surprised to learn he had been unconscious for weeks, but it wasn’t the only surprise he had: Chorne’s wife, Melody, had given birth to the couple’s daughter, Kenzie, on Valentine’s Day. “It was a joyful moment when I heard that my little girl came into the world all right,” Chorne said. “I kind of found out from everyone all at the same time. It was exciting.” Chorne said the accident happened when he was working on a water well on the family’s farm, attempting to warm the frozen well lining with a small propane heater. “I had the heater down there and I went to check on it after a while with a lit cigarette in my mouth,” Chorne said. “I didn’t smell any propone initially, but the propane gas was ignited once I climbed down. The heater must have blown out and was just spewing out gas. All I was thinking at that point was ‘stop, drop and roll.’” Amazingly, Chorne said the ordeal hasn’t been particularly physically painful. A materials tester with tech services company STRATA, of Boise, Idaho, Chorne said he hopes to return to work soon and doesn’t expect any long-term debilitation.

Ethanol dispute intensifies By Zain Shauk

Groups representing ethanol producers fired back, saying the oil industry was trying to undermine government efforts to reduce reliance on oil-based fuels. Since most U.S. ethanol is made with corn, producers often are allied with corn farmers, who enjoy an expanded market and higher prices for

Houston Chronicle

A fuel feud pitting oil against corn burned hotter March 20, as the petroleum industry cited a study to argue that increasing ethanol content in gasoline will hurt motorists and the economy.

Study says increasing ethanol content would damage economy ■

their crops because of ethanol demand. The report’s predictions were dire, concluding that the federal Renewable Fuel Standard will fail because it is increasing costs for fuel makers, eventually leading to higher consumer prices and $770 billion in lost gross domestic product by 2015.

The oil industry study, commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute and produced by NERA Economic Consulting, added that government mandates requiring energy companies to buy more ethanol have created a “death spiral impact.” Fuel prices on the East Coast already are rising because of refining expenses tied to the mandate, says Bill Day, spokesman for San Antonio-based Valero, the nation’s largest refiner. Valero’s costs related to the mandate are projected to jump from less than $250 million in 2012 to as much as $750 million this year, Day says, and that will lead to higher pump prices. The scenario described in the NERA analysis involves fuel makers cutting back on the products they sell in the United States because of the high additional cost of complying with mandates to include alternative fuels. Instead, refineries would ship more of their products overseas, slashing domestic supplies and pushing U.S. fuel prices higher, the report said. “The Renewable Fuel Standard program is irretrievably broken,” says Bob Greco, director of the API’s downstream group. He called on Congress to repeal the law, which was intended to reduce vehicle emissions and greenhouse gases. Both oil and ethanol backers say they would welcome a congressional hearing on the mandate. API says the oil industry’s efforts to meet government mandates could lead to a 30 percent jump in gasoline costs by 2015. Central to the debate is a trading system meant to support biofuel production. Companies receive a credit for each gallon of biofuel they blend into gasoline or diesel, and the credits can be bought or sold. Though Valero produces 1.2 billion gallons of ethanol annually, it does not receive credits for most of that fuel, Day says. Instead, the company has to sell its ethanol to distributors that blend it for sale at refueling stations. Those distributors then get to claim the credits, called Renewable Identification Numbers. They sell fuel makers the credits, which often inflate in price as refiners compete to purchase them and satisfy mandates. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets the amount of fuel makers must obtain each year, as a percentage of their overall fuel production. “The problem is there is more ethanol on the market than we can blend into gasoline and the amount of gasoline that the American public wants has been declining and has continued declining,” Greco says. The result is a limited number of RINs to meet mandates, causing prices of the credits to rise and raising costs for fuel makers, Greco says. Corn farmers have framed the fight over the ethanol mandates as an environmental issue. But environmentalists are not sold on corn-based ethanol as an alternative fuel.

Where’s the beef from?

NDFU president encourages farmers to weigh in on COOL proposal ■

By Betsy Simon

Forum News Service

Ever wonder if the beef on your dinner plate came from America or from abroad? COOL, or country of origin labeling, could make it easier to trace where meat sold in the U.S. came from — if the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s proposed labeling law is approved — because it would require labels on muscle cuts of beef and other meats to specify where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered. It would also remove the allowance for blending of muscle cuts of different origins, according to USDA. The agency has opened a comment period on the proposed law. North Dakota Farmers Union President Woody Barth says the comment period is a chance for farmers and ranchers to make their voices heard. “We need to tell our story and convey to policymakers the importance of COOL,” he says. “People deserve to know where their food comes from.” USDA estimates that this would impact about 7,181 meatpacking firms with solely U.S. origins, including 4,335 retailers and 2,808 livestock firms. Sam Jones-Ellard, public affairs specialist for USDA, says the majority of the costs of implementing the proposed amendments will be incurred at the packing or processing facility for prelabeled products, or at the retail level. He says USDA’s preliminary estimates of the midpoint cost of the proposed rule for the label change is $32.7 million, with a range of $16.9 million to $47.3 million. Jones-Ellard says the proposed rule will ensure that consumers are provided with accurate origin information

for muscle-cut meats as Congress intended and will bring the U.S. into conformity with its World Trade Organization obligations. “The U.S. remains committed to ensuring that consumers are provided with information about the origin of muscle-cut meats they buy at the retail level,” he says. COOL requires retailers to provide their customers with information about the origin of food products they buy, including fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and shellfish. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says COOL will allow consumers to have more information about the food they are consuming. “Consumers want to be able to easily learn the origins of their food and farmers and ranchers should be able to let them know,” says Johnson, who is the former North Dakota agriculture commissioner. “The recently proposed COOL rule, issued in response to challenges from our trading partners in the World Trade Organization, meets the requirements set forth by the WTO and bolsters the accuracy of information provided to consumers.” In a case brought to the WTO by Mexico and Canada in June last year, it was found that COOL requirements for muscle-cut meats did not match the requirements of other food products. Proponents of mandatory COOL for muscle-cut meats say labeling will provide a competitive edge for domestically produced meat and satisfy consumer demand for source information. The North Dakota Farmers Union is urging ranchers, farmers and consumers to submit their comments about COOL to USDA by April 11. Comments should be submitted at www.regulations.com or by mail to Julie Henderson, Director, USDA, AMS, LPS, COOL Division, 1400 Independence Ave. SW, Room 2620S, Washington, D.C. 20250. Comment submissions may also be made by phone at 202-720-4486 or by fax at 202-260-4486.

REGIONAL NEWS CHS grant supports NDSU Quentin Burdick Center for Cooperatives

■ The CHS Foundation has contributed

$300,000 to the North Dakota State University Quentin Burdick Center for Cooperatives. The funds will be utilized to expand the center’s capacity to fulfill the mission of education, research and outreach. The CHS Foundation is the major giving entity for CHS, an energy, grains and foods company. The Quentin Burdick Center for Cooperatives promotes education to college-age students about cooperatives. Students who become familiar with cooperatives are more prepared for careers in these cooperatives and are better able to fulfill their roles as members and directors. The CHS contribution will enable the center to expand the reach of graduate and undergraduate courses and improve efforts to develop and disseminate cooperative educational materials through

electronic and social media sources. The center also conducts research that cooperatives can use to strengthen their operations and service to members. These funds will allow for expanded research capacity and heightened communication of research results that are beneficial to local cooperatives. The CHS Foundation and Quentin Burdick Center for Cooperatives also were able to provide hands-on training and educational materials to the Zabul Agribusiness Development Team to promote and strengthen cooperatives in Zabul, Afghanistan. Development team member Cheryl Wachenheim, a professor in the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department at NDSU, worked with the southern Afghanistan director of agriculture, irrigation and livestock and his staff, as well as key leaders of cooperative boards and traders.

Congress passes appropriations bill

Allows meat inspectors to continue working

By Jerry Hagstrom Special to Agweek

WASHINGTON — Meat inspectors will stay on the job and farmers can sign up for the Conservation Stewardship Program under an appropriations bill that Congress passed last week before leaving for a two-week break. The bill is a continuing resolution that funds the entire government through Sept. 30, but it includes the agriculture appropriations bill and an amendment to pay for meat inspectors who would have been furloughed because of budget cuts required under the Budget Control Act. The cuts are known as sequestration. President Barack Obama was traveling in Israel, but he is expected to sign the bill before March 27, when the current continuing resolution expires. The bill preserves most of the sequestration cuts, but also contains more money for the Special Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children known as WIC, so that all applicants to that program can be served. The inclusion of the agriculture appropriations bill in the measure also means that farmers can enroll in the CSP. The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition noted that the first government funding bill for fiscal year 2013 shut off funding for the CSP and that farmers can enroll approximately 12 million acres of agricultural land in the program this year, an amount that will bring the program to a total of 62 million acres by year’s end.

CSP is a working lands conservation program that rewards farmers and ranchers for the environmental benefits they produce. Assistance is provided for actively managing and improving existing conservation systems and for implementing new conservation activities on land in agricultural production.

Meat inspectors’ provision

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack praised the meat inspectors’ provision, which originated in the Senate through an amendment sponsored by Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Mark Pryor, D-Ark., and ranking member Roy Blunt, R-Mo. The Pryor-Blunt provision transfers $55 million to the Food Safety and Inspection Service from funding for school equipment grants and maintenance on buildings and facilities. “Yesterday’s (March 20) action in the Senate is an acknowledgment that sequestration left USDA with no other option but to furlough meat inspectors,” Vilsack noted. “The Senate has now voted to provide us with funding to help address those furloughs, but this action does not eliminate the critical need for Congress to find a responsible solution to sequestration through balanced deficit reduction.” Vilsack was apparently referring to the fact that the Budget Control Act calls for similar cuts in future years. House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., also praised passage of the bill and the meat inspector amendment. “While continuing resolutions are not an ideal way to operate, the legislation passed today cuts wasteful Washington spending and avoids a government shutdown,” Aderholt said.

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association said it “applauds” passage of the continuing resolution with the meat inspector amendment, but also maintained that USDA should have used other legal authority to keep inspectors on the job. “This is great news for every segment of American agriculture,” said NCBA President Scott George, a cattleman from Cody, Wyo. “With this shift of finances, Congress was able to avoid the crisis created by the administration and keep FSIS inspectors in the plants where they belong. While cattlemen and women were disappointed Secretary Vilsack threw in the towel on his agency’s 107year-old duty to provide federal food safety inspections, we sincerely thank Sens. Blunt and Pryor for ensuring the nation’s food supply will not be limited by politics.” The National Chicken Council lauded the Senate’s inclusion of the amendment on March 20. “NCC and our members recognize that sequestration presents significant challenges that require USDA and all other federal government agencies to make difficult decisions to prioritize resources,” said NCC President Mike Brown. “But cutting an essential, legally mandated program such as food safety inspection is not the way to address the government’s budget deficit.” Through this process, NCC has contended that furloughing FSIS inspectors would be inconsistent with the mandates of the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act and the Egg Products Inspection Act, which prohibit the production, processing, or interstate distribution of meat, poultry and egg products without federal inspection. “The amendment that passed today puts a fine point on the requirements of these mandates,” Brown added.

Mustard is evolving

INNIPEG, Manitoba — Contracting mustard has changed from the norm into a comparative rarity. It was only a few years ago that almost all mustard was contracted before it was planted. Users are mostly sophisticated manufacturers of grocery products. The last thing they want is to be short of their essential raw material. When most exported mustard came from Canada, the downside was the occasional drought. In those years, mustard end users were left high and dry. There are lots of places in the world that can grow mustard. In 2006, if you recall, yellow was trading at 10 to 12 cents per pound and “nobody” planted it. 2007 wasn’t much better. Then, in 2008 mustard stocks were tight and prices went to 65 cents on yellow and 45 cents on brown. This was when commercial farming was taking over in Russia and Ukraine. Mustard plantings surged. These countries produce mostly yellow, but also some brown. Things have been evolving on the prairies, as well. Farmers got used to contracting before planting. Having to sell on the open market at 10 cents per pounds can be a strong motivator for contracting at 13 cents. Mustard prices are interesting. Product had been piling up in Canada. In 2011, the carry-in was 116,000 metric tons. But plantings came down and, last year, yields were off. The carry-out this summer probably will be down to 50,000 metric tons of all mustards. Spot yellow trades at 38 cents per pound, although it may be hard to move volumes at that level. You should be able to get 40 cents for July delivery. New crop is also trading about 40 cents for off-combine delivery, moving up to 43 cents for July 2014. Brown is 36 cents spot and 35 to 36 cents for new crop. Oriental mustard recently broke above chart resist-

ance at 28 cents. End users of prairie mustard continue to sit back. They’re watching seed going out the door and are confident they’ll be able to buy all they want next winter.

Canola

May canola futures trade at a $15 premium to July. Basis levels remain near historic highs for April delivery. The average weekly domestic crush pace has been declining and we expect this trend to continue later into the crop year. Crush margins are under pressure and weaker world vegetable oil prices will temper further upside in canola prices. Canola exports are running 1 million metric tons behind last year’s pace. The Chinese canola harvest will start in late April, which could further temper export. Some analysts think the canola crop is larger than the Statistics Canada estimate of 13.3 million metric tons, given the pace of farmer deliveries into the commercial system. Canola futures have held values while the bean complex has come under pressure. The South American harvest is progressing and the softer soybean market will eventually spillover into canola. When the Canadian canola and U.S. soybean markets experience tighter carryouts, the market can be extremely volatile

in June and July. Domestic crushers generally take their downtime for maintenance and upgrades during the summer months. There is potential for a sharp drop in canola demand after seeding. That said, North American supplies will be tight this summer.

2012 malt barley

Domestic malting companies are encouraging farmers to resubmit malt barley samples that were borderline. Top-quality malt barley supplies are relatively tight, but this widens the potential supplies. Malt companies are securing their requirements in case feed barley prices strengthen later in the crop year. Therefore, even if feed barley prices increase, malt prices will remain stagnant. Malt prices on the world market have remained constant throughout the crop year. Canada lost business to Australia for the Chinese market and to Argentina in Latin America. We do not expect significant malt barley exports for the remainder of the crop year.

Milling wheat update

Minneapolis wheat futures remain in a downward trend as the Northern Hemisphere wheat growing regions have favorable weather. The U.S. hard red winter wheat crop is improving with the recent precipitation and warmer weather. The prairies will have good moisture for planting and early development. Europe, Russia and Ukraine have sufficient moisture as the crop comes out of dormancy. North Africa has adequate moisture. Wheat offers from the major exporters are under pressure moving towards the end of the crop year. U.S. farmers sell 50 percent of the winter wheat crop in the summer which will pressure milling wheat prices and the feedgrain complex.

MARKETS

Looking forward to March USDA report Wheat: gains limited by higher dollar The wheat markets had little net change last week. The Chicago market slipped lower with increased moisture and a late week sell-off in the corn market, while the Minneapolis and Kansas City markets held steady. Strong gains in the U.S. dollar sparked a risk-off day in most commodities on March 18, and wheat was no exception. Losses of more than 10 cents were recorded during the day, but the market did not take out last week’s lows, so chart damage was avoided. Wheat became the leader of the grain markets on March 19. The March 18 crop reports showed a slight improvement in the condition of the winter wheat crop in Kansas and Oklahoma, and a slight decrease in Texas, but the market paid little attention to a crop report this early in the spring season. Month to month spreads in the wheat markets are growing more bullish by the day, with inversions now in place in old-crop markets. Commercial buying was supplemented by noncommercial buying on March 20, as the turn lower by the dollar index brought spec money back into wheat. Traders were also concerned about cold weather in parts of the winter wheat production areas. Wheat came under steady selling pressure March 21, with extended forecasts calling for more moisture in the winter wheat production regions. Export sales were decent, but shipments remain behind pace. Losses continued on March 22 with selling pressure across the grain markets. The winter wheat cash markets are trading at a discount to corn, which should continue to draw wheat into domestic feed and ethanol uses. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s export inspections for wheat was estimated at 23.9 million bushels for the week ending March 15, with the yearto-date pace at 746 million bushels compared with 796.7 million bushels for last year at this time. With 11 weeks left in the marketing year, shipments need to average 25.3 million bushels to make the revised USDA expectations of 1.025 billion bushels. USDA reported export sales of 17.8 million bushels, above the 11.2 million bushels needed to keep pace with projections. Shipments of 23.4 million bushels were below the 28 million bushels needed.

Corn: strong cash market The corn market was up 8 cents in the May contract last week, as of noon on March 22. Corn had a positive close in the first four days of last week, but did come under pressure on March 22 with profit taking. Buying interest resurfaced last week with the strength in the cash market. New-crop contracts found support from what appears could be a late spring. Traders are looking ahead to this week’s USDA reports. The corn market started lower on March 18 with Euro zone financial market fears, which strengthened the dollar and pressured the stock market. From there the futures firmed into the afternoon and traded with strength through March 21. Active bull spreading with old- versus new-crop contracts supported the front months. Talk of more idled ethanol plants coming back on line helped to create buying interest. Additional support comes from the

tight stocks and a strong basis, with spots in Illinois and Iowa at a plus 30 to 43 cents. The May contract also posted a high not seen since the first part of February. The new crop months found support from the cool and wet weather in the eastern Corn Belt that may delay planting and also limit the availability of early harvested corn. There is talk of corn acres being switched to soybeans. Also, parts of Argentina and the Western U.S. remain dry and that could hurt production. Ethanol production for the week ending March 15 averaged 809,000 barrels per day, down 9.4 percent versus last year. Corn used in production was estimated at 84.95 million bushels and needs to average 88.06 million bushels per week to meet this crop year’s USDA estimate of 4.5 billion bushels. Stocks as of March 15 were 18.47 million barrels, which is down 1.2 percent versus the previous week and down 18.7 percent versus last year. USDA’s export inspections report was bearish for corn at 15.4 million bushels, with 17.6 million bushels needed to keep pace with USDA projections. The export sales report for corn was at 3.6 million bushels, below the 9.7 million bushels needed to meet USDA’s projection of 825 million bushels. Total shipments last week were at 16.5 million bushels, below the 17.4 million bushels needed for the 2012 to ’13 marketing year.

Soybeans: watching the weather As of noon on March 22, May soybeans were up 14 cents on the week while November 2013 soybeans were unchanged. The market continues to focus on the South American harvest, with some attention now being paid to spring weather forecasts in the U.S. Slowing export demand led to lower closes to start last week, with March 19 being the sixth consecutive session to close with losses. The South American harvest pressured the market. Soft outside markets were a factor as well, with the U.S. dollar higher on March 18 and 19. May soybeans closed higher for the first time in more than a week on March 20 with support from commercial buying. Speculative buying in the July to November spread provided additional support, as did some light short covering. Logistical problems continue in Brazilian ports with questions developing over Chinese demand after reports of Brazilian cargo cancellations. May soybeans overcame a lackluster export sales report to close sharply higher March 21. The strengthening inverse in the May-toJuly futures spread indicated commercial buying that had been sparked by the March 20 reversal.

Losses returned on March 22 with a negative tone across the grain markets. Speculative traders were taking profits to end last week, and there was also positioning ahead of the March 29 USDA reports. USDA reported soybean export inspections pace as of the week ending March 15 at 8.9 million bushels. This brings the year-to-date export shipments pace for soybeans to 1.174 billion bushels compared with 958.8 million bushels for last year at this time. The soybean export sales pace for the week ending March 15 was estimated at 12.6 million bushels (4 million bushels for 2012 to ’13), bringing this year’s total to 1.308 billion bushels, compared with 1.133 billion bushels last year at this time. Shipments were reported at 8.3 million bushels.

Barley USDA reported export inspections of 88,000 bushels of barley last week. Year-to-date export inspections for barley stand at 6.15 million bushels compared with 6.02 million bushels last year. USDA reported no export sales or shipments for barley. Cash feed barley bids in Minneapolis on March 21 were at $5.25 per bushel.

Durum USDA reported export inspections of 450,000 bushels of durum last week. USDA reported export sales of 200,000 bushels of durum last week, with shipments of 500,000 bushels. Year-to-date sales are at 17.1 million bushels, up from 16.3 million bushels at this time last year. Cash bids for milling quality durum on March 21 were at $7.75 per bushel in Berthold, N.D., and $7.85 in Dickinson, N.D.

Canola Canola futures on the Winnipeg, Manitoba, exchange had gains of up to $12 (Canadian) per ton last week. The new-crop November contract had the larger gains, with support coming from acreage competition for 2013. The old-crop May contract had smaller gains of around $7 (Canadian) per ton last week with choppy trade in the soybean market. Support did come from lower trade in the Canadian dollar and gains in global oilseed markets. Cash canola bids in Velva, N.D., were at $27.76 per hundredweight on March 21.

Sunflowers USDA reported export sales of 19.6 trillion metric tons of soybean oil, with shipments of 11.7 trillion metric tons. Total sales so far this year are at 815 trillion metric tons, way up from 331.3 trillion metric tons last year. Cash bids for NuSun sunflowers in Fargo, N.D., were at $22.60 per hundredweight on March 21.

Dry beans Market activity remains quiet, with old-crop bids in the $30 to $32 per hundredweight range for pintos and $30 for navies. Offerings of $33 new-crop contracts for pintos and navies are getting some attention, but acres have been limited, and those prices do not compete well with soybeans for most producers.

USDA to reduce direct payments ■

Cuts required under the sequester

By Jerry Hagstrom Special to Agweek

WASHINGTON — The Agriculture Department’s Farm Service Agency will reduce direct payments to farmers this year to regain $151 million that the agency is now required to cut under the sequester and has temporarily suspended disbursement of payments for many FSA programs starting on March 1 as part of reducing expenditures that went into effect under the sequestration provision of the Budget Control Act. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told reporters on March 19 that 350,000 recipients of certain programs would be required to repay a small portion of them. The payments are the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payment Program (SURE), Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) and the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC). Vilsack said that more than 90 percent of the farmers involved also get direct payments and USDA had decided that the easiest way to recoup the money was to cut the direct payments rather than bill them and ask the farmers to send USDA a check. But a USDA source on March 21 told Agweek that the SURE, NAP and MILC payments have been temporarily suspended. USDA is authorized to use a limited interchange authority within FSA programs that allows the transfer of funds from direct payments to other FSA programs so that the effects of the reductions are not felt in those programs, but there is a 30-day Congressional notification period that must pass before the agency can move forward with this transfer, the source explained. USDA notified Congress on March 19 of its intention to transfer money from the direct payment program to other FSA programs. This would have the result of capturing the savings required by the sequester by reducing payments made through the direct payment program account by up to 8.5 percent. After 30 days, FSA intends to resume making these program payments in full. “While USDA’s efforts will minimize disruption to the extent possible, we cannot mitigate the negative effects that cuts of this magnitude will have on our mission,” a spokeswoman for Vilsack said. “We continue to urge Congress to replace sequestration with balanced deficit reduction.” Early last week, Vilsack told reporters that 350,000 farmers would be required to repay small portions of payments under the SURE, NAP and MILC programs and that USDA would handle those repayments by reducing the direct payments that most of these producers get. Cutting back the direct payments would reduce both farmers’ and USDA’s administrative costs, Vilsack said.

REGIONAL NEWS Briefly...

■ Rural flooding: The Souris

River in northern North Dakota is expected to exceed flood stage in many rural areas this spring. National Weather Service hydrologist Allen Schlag says additional snowfall has increased the amount of water in the region that will runoff into the river. Dikes protect the city of Minot and Schlag

says rural areas with no dikes are of the biggest concern. Colder weather in the region has led to ice forming on the Missouri River and passing through the Bismarck-Mandan area. The weather service says ice collecting south of the cities has led to a river rise of about 3 feet, but there is no threat to property.

BELFIELD, N.D. — As Kurt Kordon was driving down the road, he noticed the straw wattles — long, thin straw bales seen in the ditches and medians along the interstate — and figured the demand for them would be high with the large amount of road construction in the area. So, Kordon decided to look into the manufacturing of the wattles. Soon, he was in the wattle business and now is co-owner of Northern Plains Erosion Control LLC. A wattle is a seemingly simple device that helps combat a major problem — sediment movement and erosion. “The whole point of the wattle would be to slow that water down and let that sediment settle out,” says Matt Sperry, North Dakota Department of Transportation environmental scientist. “So it’s more of a sediment control than an erosion control.” Kordon, along with partner Dwayne Shypkoski, began the process of setting up a wattle-making shop in June, Shypkoski says. They ordered a wattle maker from a German company and found a location in rural Belfield, N.D., not far from Shypkoski’s ranch. “They actually flew us over there to inspect it before they shipped it here,” he says. “We got a little trip to Germany.”

They made their first wattles on Jan. 20. Northern Plains’ wattles are made of wheat straw, certified to be free of weeds and seeds, which is a hot commodity, Shypkoski says. “In this part of the country, wheat straw has a value because it’s no-till farming in this area and it has value for being put back in the soil,” he says. “The residue is good for the soil. It preserves moisture and nutrients and so it does have value that way — it’s not free.” While wattles are most often seen being used for sediment control in road construction, they have other uses, Shypkoski says. “Anywhere where there’s a construction zone and it’s got a hill” is where wattles can be utilized, he says. The transportation department started to use wattles as early as 2004, Sperry says. The straw bales have grown in popularity since. “They’re easy to install, easy to get a hold of,” he says. “You can put in a lot in a short amount of time because they’re not really labor intensive.” If the wattles are made with 100 percent biodegradable materials — meaning the netting and the stakes used to set them, as well as the straw — they can be left in place, Sperry says. And grass grows just as well — if not better — where the wattles have been. “There’s been some instances where I’ve seen grass growing in the straw bales before I see it anywhere else,” he says. “Basically you have to think of it as a really thick layer of mulch in that one area.”

is hosting the “Land of 10,000 Ag Opportunities” at the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference June 25 to 28 at the Marriot City Center in downtown Minneapolis. For the first time in its 28-year history, the Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom program is hosting agricultural literacy supporters from all across the nation. The Ag in the Classroom program provides school teachers a wealth of opportunities for embedding agriculture, food and natural resources education into the K-12 curriculum. These programs cultivate an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day. “We’re looking forward to showcasing Minnesota’s vibrant agriculture sector,” says Al Withers, MAITC program director. “We’re offering a little something for everyone – and we want

those attending to have fun learning and networking.” The conference brings together classroom teachers, informal educators, program volunteers and staff, and leaders in agriculture and education. The national conference will feature workshops, traveling tours, an exhibit fair and dynamic keynote speakers. The major keynote will feature Andrew Zimmern, internationally known TV personality, chef and food writer, and co-creator and host of the television show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. He is a 2010 James Beard Award winner for Outstanding TV Food Personality. Zimmern will speak at the closing dinner on global food and culture. Cris Peterson, a children’s book author and dairy farmer from Grantsburg, Wis., will speak at the kick-off luncheon. Early registration by April 15 is $375. By May 15, registration is $400. After May 15, the cost is $425. Opportunities are available for organizations or businesses wanting to be a conference sponsor or exhibitor.

Farm labor shortage looms ■

Young workers steer clear of agriculture

By Peter Hecht

The Sacramento Bee

SELMA, Calif. — Vicente Contreras is 70 years old — and “no mas,” he insists with a smile — and he says he is still fit and hearty enough to perform the hard labor of California’s farm fields. Contreras concedes his knees hurt when he climbs ladders to pick peaches, nectarines and plums for $8 to $9 an hour, six days a week, during the peak summer harvest. And during the less rigorous pruning of grapevines in winter, he can’t move as fast as the young workers — at least when they happen to be around. Amid the verdant fields and orchards of America’s most bountiful agricultural region, California farmworkers are graying. A labor shortage deepens as fewer younger workers arrive from Mexico and more head home to stay. Increasingly, California’s $44.3 billion agricultural industry must rely on the well-calloused hands of older workers who came many years ago to fill jobs pruning, planting, picking and packing. These days at Chandler Farms, a fourth-generation family ranch 20 miles

Former Ky. agriculture chief faces ethics charges

■ FRANKFORT, Ky. – Kentucky’s Executive Branch Ethics Commission has charged former agriculture commissioner Richie Farmer with 42 ethics violations accusing him of misusing state funds and state employees during his time in office. He’s accused of placing his friends in jobs that had no specified duties and asking them to carry out his personal errands. He allegedly had employees chauffeur him to doctors’ appointments and shopping trips, as well as build a basketball court on his property. Farmer was a shooting guard for the University of Kentucky’s Wildcats basketball team from 1988 to 1992. Farmer faces a $5,000 fine for each count, totaling $210,000. Seven employees who worked with Farmer also face ethics charges.

TIAA-CREF, University of Illinois launch center for farmland research

■ NEW YORK – TIAA-CREF, a financial

services provider, has launched the TIAACREF Center for Farmland Research at the University of Illinois. The new center will enhance the university’s research and educational initiatives for its students and the agricultural community, including investors, farmers, researchers and businesses. The TIAA-CREF Center for Farmland Research will conduct research and host academic symposiums focused on farmland prices and

south of Fresno, veteran workers like Contreras are in the majority. On a recent weekday, Antonio Magdaleno, 59, cut grapevines in a neighboring field. Magdaleno emigrated from Michoacan, Mexico, in 1973 and has spent 36 of his last 40 years on Central Valley farms. His features bronzed and weathered, Magdaleno says he looks forward to the mid-winter pruning, “a beautiful time and something special,” marking the start of the growing season. “It’s always been us,” Magdaleno says in Spanish. “Time has passed, and we’re older. The young people want to work in factories and other places.”

Converging trends

The aging of California’s agricultural workforce reflects a convergence of trends. In many cases, the children of farmworkers who arrived decades ago have little interest in field work, leaving much of the vital labor to their elders. Tighter U.S. immigration enforcement, as well as brutal cartel-driven violence along the Mexican border, have deterred many potential workers from attempting to cross. And, amid a rebounding economy in Mexico, Mexican farms are facing their own labor shortage and have plenty of work to offer at home. The upshot, according to the California Farm Bureau Federation, is that

more than 70 percent of state agricultural producers anticipate a worker shortage starting this spring and worsening through the growing season. Some officials estimate the labor force could fall by more than 80,000 farmworkers — down from the 450,000 workers on whom farmers have come to rely for the peak harvest of late summer. “Basically, we’re running out of lowskilled workers. People simply are not doing farm work to the extent they were doing before,” says J. Edward Taylor, a University of California-Davis, economist who has studied the migration of farmworkers from Mexico. Contreras, the 70-year-old farmhand, says he is happy to be among those still working the orchards and vineyards at Chandler Farms, which produces tree fruit, raisin grapes and almonds. “What I like is being out with people in the fresh air,” says Contreras in Spanish, his eyes glinting in the crisp morning sun. “I’m alive, active and ready for this work.” Grinning, he contorted to parody a feeble man shriveling into a ball. “If I don’t work, I’ll do this,” he says. But from California’s Central Valley to Washington D.C., the graying workforce adds urgency to the debate over immigration reform. Farm lobbyists and elected officials are discussing remedies that include granting legal status to more than 1 million undocumented farmworkers in the U.S. and establishing an expanded

Zoetis accepting research proposals for Cattle Call program

■ MADISON, N.J. – Zoetis, formerly Pfizer

Animal Health, announces the return of the Cattle Call grant program and is accepting research proposals for improving cattle reproduction or developing models for managing cattle pain. Cattle Call supports the

development of new products and services that improve the health and productivity of beef and dairy cattle. In 2013, Zoetis will fund one or more researchers with a grant of up to $150,000, with minimum funding of $25,000. “The inaugural Cattle Call grant program in 2012 successfully brought forth many new ideas and technologies that are helping to address important needs in the veterinary and cattle industries,” says Michelle Haven, senior vice president of corporate development, alliances and solutions at Zoetis. “We are very excited about the research we helped fund for improving productivity and immune function in cattle, and we look forward to building on our partnerships to expand research into reproduction and pain management in 2013.” Innovations in research would not be possible without partnerships with industry experts, Haven says. Information: cattlecall@zoetis.com. The application deadline is April 30.

New online market for weaner pigs, feeder pigs and facility spaces

■ MASON CITY, Iowa – Value-Added Science & Technologies has launched an online market for weaner pigs, feeder pigs and facility spaces to help producers better manage pig flow and asset utilization. ePigflow will connect all participants in the swine industry to make it simple, transparent and secure to buy and sell weaner or feeder pigs and rent facilities. ePigflow was developed

guest worker visa program for agriculture to ensure a steady supply of laborers. “We have to try to find a system that is not going to cause a major disruption to our industry,” says Bryan Little, director of labor affairs for the California Farm Bureau Federation. The industry group favors letting undocumented farmworkers stay in the country while applying for legal status, as well as drawing in seasonal guest workers to replenish the labor force. California agricultural interests estimate that as many as 70 to 90 percent of farmworkers in the state may be there illegally, often presenting counterfeit documents to secure work. Those who face the least danger of deportation — and who are least likely to flee in immigration raids — tend to be veteran workers, whose U.S. residency is more established. Bill Chandler, 73, runs the family ranch in Selma with his son, John, who is 35. Chandler says his workforce largely consists of older laborers who got permanent residency or U.S. citizenship under a 1986 immigration reform law signed by President Ronald Reagan. “There are always people in the ag labor force who don’t have (proper) papers,” Chandler says. “So we’re all scrambling for what labor is here. And they’re older folks.” He adds: “They’re special. They’re really special.”

by VAST and Ryan Cooney. Steve Weiss, president of VAST, saw the value in creating a market where the connections between buyers and sellers could easily be made. “Our traditional approach to buying and selling pigs and identifying facilities is inefficient, outdated and difficult for producers to navigate. Producers have a limited number of contacts, and so do brokers, and too often there is a lack of transparency that makes it difficult for producers to make informed decisions or fully realize what is available,” Weiss says. “It’s common for producers to contact me for help in buying or selling pigs or locating space and I wanted to create a system that would make it easy for them and protect their interests in a more transparent marketplace. Working with Ryan Cooney, who has previous experience designing online markets, we have created an online market and services that will benefit the swine industry.” ePigflow provides four services to help producers manage their pig flow and maximize asset utilization: spot market sales; longterm contract listings; facility space listings; and payment assurance service. Sign up for a free ePigflow account at www.epigflow. com. There is no cost for an account and it gives you access to all the listings, price activity and the ability to post new listings. – Agweek Wire Reports

Taste is king

He explains that the characteristics of beef that affect palatability are flavor, juiciness and tenderness, and those are primarily reflected in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s quality grade of each carcass. The main difference between a Select, Choice or Prime stamp comes down to marbling, which is a highly heritable trait.

Needs of the consumer

“That’s why it’s so important to stay focused on increasing marbling in our cattle,” McCully says. “It’s still our best strategy to meeting consumer demands for our end product.” Management factors such as health, pre-feedlot nutrition, disposition, the use of growth technologies and days on feed also affect quality grade, he says, so utilizing best practices throughout the animal’s lifecycle is another way to increase the odds of a favorable rating. The annual Power of Meat survey released in February identified some notable trends in meat preparation. McCully says 65 percent of consumers surveyed cook beef at home once to three times per week. Beef was only slightly edged out by chicken in the frequency category. While slightly fewer home cooks are incorporating meat into their meals three times per week or more (69 percent, down from 74 percent in 2012), he says the lower number likely reflects fewer meals being cooked at home overall. “Regardless, cattlemen need to stay focused on making sure those beef meals, whether served once or seven times a week, are a great experience every time.” He says where consumers get their preparation advice is also changing, at least among the younger crowd. While 50 percent of home cooks 65 and older still consult an old-fashioned cookbook, overall people are turning to the Web, using online recipes, food manufacturer sites and YouTube. That increased media presence brings not only answers, but questions, too. Today’s information-driven consumer wants a myriad of details before they make any meat purchase. Is it safe? Wholesome? Fresh? Local? How were the live animals handled? Were Beef Quality Assurance principles adhered to? What about hormones and antibiotics? How was the meat handled and packaged? Many challenges lie ahead in the beef industry, but with them come opportunities. And as long as producers strive to raise better quality cattle, McCully says, they’ll be armed to face those challenges head-on — and make sure their product ends up on dinner tables across the country several times each week.

Ending undercover activism

Bills aim to end farm animal abuse videos ■

By Tracie Cone

Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — An undercover video that showed California cows struggling to stand as they were prodded to slaughter by forklifts led to the largest meat recall in U.S. history. In Vermont, a video of veal calves skinned alive and tossed like sacks of potatoes ended with the plant’s closure and criminal convictions. Now in a pushback led by the meat and poultry industries, state legislators across the country are introducing laws making it harder for animal welfare advocates to investigate cruelty and food safety cases. Some bills make it illegal to take photographs at a farming operation. Others make it a crime for someone such as an animal welfare advocate to lie on an application to get a job at a plant. Bills pending in California, Nebraska and Tennessee require that anyone col-

lecting evidence of abuse turn it over to law enforcement within 24 to 48 hours — which advocates say does not allow enough time to document illegal activity under federal humane handling and food safety laws. “We believe that folks in the agriculture community and folks from some of the humane organizations share the same concerns about animal cruelty,” says Mike Zimmerman, chief of staff for Assembly Member Jim Patterson, RFresno, whose bill was unveiled recently. “If there’s abuse taking place, there is no sense in letting it continue so you can make a video.” Patterson’s bill, sponsored by the California Cattlemen’s Association, would make failing to turn over video of abuse to law enforcement within 48 hours an infraction punishable by a fine. Critics say the bills deny consumers the ability to know how their food is produced. “The meat industry’s mantra is always that these are isolated cases, but the purpose of these bills is to prevent any pattern of abuse from being documented,” says Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection for the Humane Society of the United States, which conducted the California and

Vermont investigations. In Indiana, Arkansas and Pennsylvania it would be a crime to make videos at agricultural operations. The goal of the proposed California law, industry representatives say, is to halt any abuses quickly and get video evidence to government regulators within two days, not to impede undercover investigations by animal welfare groups. “The people doing this aren’t cops, so I wouldn’t think it’s their job to build a case. The goal for all of us is to reduce instances of animal abuse,” says David Daley, a Cattlemen vice president and professor of agricultural science at California State University-Chico. Formal opposition to the California bill comes from the ASPCA, the Teamsters, the HSUS and dozens of others. They say these attempts by the agriculture industry to stop investigations are part of a nationwide agenda set by the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative think tank backed by business interests. ALEC has labeled those who interfere with animal operations “terrorists,” though a spokesman says he wishes now that the organization had called its legislation the “Freedom to Farm Act” rather than the “Animal and

Energy misspent

Animal welfare advocates say all of the focus on secrecy is energy misspent. “I wish the cattlemen actually wanted to stop cruelty, not the documenting of cruelty,” says HSUS California director Jennifer Fearing. “One could think of a thousand ways for them to actually stop cruelty rather than waiting for people to make videos and turn them over.” Animal welfare advocates say law enforcement agencies do not have the time or inclination to work complex animal abuse and food safety cases, and that federal USDA inspectors in slaughter plants have turned a blind eye to abuse. When a USDA inspector at the Vermont plant was heard in 2009 coaching a plant worker on how to avoid being shut down, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack weighed in, calling the

Last year, 24 new positions in the Food Safety Inspection Service were dedicated to humane handling, says a high-ranking food safety official not authorized to speak publicly. That hasn’t slowed investigations or the bills designed to stop them. The Arkansas bill goes further than the others and would prohibit anyone other than law enforcement from investigating animal cases. Last year, Iowa, a major egg-producing state, passed a bill making it illegal to deny being a member of an animal welfare organization on a farm job application. Utah passed one that outlaws photography. Most of the sensational videos of abuse in recent years are shot by undercover operatives who surreptitiously apply and are hired by the meat processors for jobs within the facilities.

in the head, prompting several fast-food hamburger companies to cancel contracts, at least temporarily. Animal welfare groups say investigations take weeks because the operatives nose around only when they aren’t performing the duties for which they were hired. An HSUS investigator was in the Hallmark plant in Southern California for six weeks from October to November 2007, when the nonprofit turned over to the local district attorney evidence that included fraud in the federal school lunch program because animals too sick to walk were being slaughtered. In January 2008, HSUS released the video to force the district attorney to act. Two employees were convicted of cruelty charges. Late last year, nine workers at a Wyoming pork processing facility were charged with animal cruelty after an HSUS video showed them kicking and tossing piglets and failing to euthanize a sow gravely injured by a worker while giving birth. In 2009, HSUS spent 21 days in the Vermont slaughterhouse where male calves born to dairy cows were killed for veal. “Believe me, our investigators would like to be out of there as soon as possible. They’re stoic, they’re courageous, but they are not enjoying their work at all,” says Mary Beth Sweetland, director of investigations for HSUS.

Water, food security having global economic impact

a company that produces specialized chemistries to enhance plants, seeds, soil and water, has established an ongoing initiative to support growers and turf managers in water conservation and resource management. “Positioning ourselves as leaders in water management goes much further than making a blanket statement,” says Rick Wohlner, president of Precision Laboratories. “We work closely with our agriculture and turf customers, determining the best path to market with products that reduce water usage and increase the performance of other products. We are in the business of feeding the world and creating the best playing surfaces – our choice is to do this while managing water inputs as extensively as possible.” Water and food security has already started to have a global impact. The agriculture and turf industries use about 82 percent of the fresh water in the United States, making water management an even more important topic than it is today. Since the mid-1990’s, Precision Laboratories has led the turf industry with its line of soil surfactants, which help turf managers reduce water consumption and enhance efficient irrigation. The company recently sponsored education sessions at the 2013 Golf Course Superintendents Association of America Conference held in San Diego, addressing best practices in water management and sustainability, among other topics. “Water use has a direct correlation to turf management and agricultural food production,” Wohlner says. “It’s critical to produce chemistries that allow these industries to in-

corporate best practices when using water as a resource and all while supporting the growing population that is currently straining water, food and energy resources.”

FFA leaders across US attend National Agriculture Day training

■ WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 19 was Na-

Leadership training at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Md., was led by experts representing the National FFA Organization, National 4-H, Agriculture Council of America, Farm Credit, John Deere, Walmart, National Association of Farm Broadcasting, American Farm Bureau Federation, Land O’ Lakes, the U.S. Forest Service and more. During their time in Washington, FFA members and agricultural students participated in idea exchange groups, visited congressional leaders at Capitol Hill, underwent media training and took a nighttime tour of the nation’s capital. “National Agriculture Day is a great opportunity for agriculturalists to share their knowledge, dedication and commitment to the future’s safe, affordable and abundant food supply,” says Kent Schescke, director of government and nonprofit relations at the National FFA Organization.

PLANTING EQUIPMENT FARMERS - Increasing yields in 2012 drought year was remarkable. But some did records above the records like 87.5 bushels on soybeans and corn yields from 225 to as high as 392 bushel per acre were seen and more. These were done with seed treatments and high quality nutrients. These are the top key nutrients -Calcium, Boron and Silica - leading this factor. Diseases were eliminated, aphids, insects and more; Sugar Beets, Corn and Soybeans are heavy users of boron. Boron in most of the United States is under required levels, plant tissue prove this. Increasing Boron can increase sugar levels in crops!
