By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent The ongoing drought will diminish crop yields this year and impact Nebraska's cattle inventory, both key components to the state's foreign trade balance. Despite the dilemma facing Nebraska agriculture, establishing long-term trade relations is key to future prosperity. That's one strategy behind Gov. Dave Heineman's current trade mission to China. "This is a very challenging time for us because of the drought and

the fires we have been fighting this last week," Heineman said. "I still think we are going to have a very significant corn and soybean crop. The cattle industry is a concern because of the lack of pasture right now and the lack of hay." Despite the impact the drought will have on Nebraska, Heineman said, "we still need to be interested in global markets. We compete in a global economy. Nebraska has the best food and businesses in the world, in my opinion, and I know we can compete every single day, and that is why I am willing to make this trade mission to China."

Heineman spoke to Nebraska reporters on Tuesday from Xi'an, China, the capital city of Shaanxi Province, where he and Shaanxi Gov. Zhengyoung Zhao signed a letter of intent to form a sisterstate or "twinning" relationship. Heineman called the agreement a "momentous day for Nebraska and China relations." "Formalizing the already strong relationship between the heartland of the United States and the heartland of China will pay

UNL Extension Offering Drought Resources LINCOLN - University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension has created a new website that offers resources from the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and others for dealing with drought in the region. The site is at droughtresources.unl.edu. "As we Nebraskans know, our weather brings new challenges every year," said Kathleen Lodl, UNL Extension associate dean. "Last year it was flooding, this year it's drought. UNL Extension has a deep wealth of research-based, unbiased expertise, and our new website will give Nebraskans quick, easy access to that expertise. "By all accounts," Lodl added, "it appears the 2012 drought may be one for the record books. For daily agriculture news, updates and local happenings, visit the Heartland Express website at www.myfarmandranch.com

While we can't control that, we can do our best to manage water resources to mitigate damage. That's what we're committed to in UNL Extension." The new site includes links to information on crops, livestock, economics, water, families, and home and garden. It will include the latest weather forecasts from state climatologist Al Dutcher, as well as links to such ongoing programing as "Market Journal," CropWatch and "Backyard Farmer"; UNL Extension publications; UNL news releases; and links to a number of key resources outside the university.

Weather Outlook Al Dutcher Report Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Allen Dutcher

The drought continues unabated, with the western 2/3 of the state depicted as experiencing extreme drought (D3) conditions as of 7/31 by the U.S. Drought Monitor. Severe drought (D2) conditions are depicted for the remainder of the state. If high temperatures continue to stay in the upper 90's or above, coupled with below normal precipitation, we should expect that the extreme drought conditions will be expanded to cover most of eastern Nebraska, with exceptional drought (D4) likely for portions of the Panhandle, southwest, west central, and north central Nebraska. Models offer no significant relief in regards to temperatures or precipitation during this forecast period and further crop deterioration is likely. Week One Forecast, 8/4 - 8/10: Temperatures this week are expected to start out several degrees below normal, but rapidly warm as the persistent upper air ridge that dominated our weather the last few months rebuilds into the central Plains. Weather models indicate that some monsoon moisture will work into the central Rockies and may be sufficient to increase our precipitation chances into the 20-30% range several times during this forecast period. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible across East Central and

Southeast Nebraska on 8/4 as the cold front that moved through the state on 8/3 pushes southeast. Dry conditions are expected during the 8/5-8/6 period, before isolated thunderstorms are possible across northeast Nebraska on 8/7 as a frontal boundary slips southward through the Dakota’s. Dry conditions are expected on 8/8, with isolated thunderstorms possible during the 8/9-8/10 period as monsoon moisture moves into the west central High Plains. Best moisture chances appear confined to the western 1/3 of the state. High Temperatures: 8/4 (low 80's N - low 90's S), 8/5 (mid 80's NEupper 90's W), 8/6 (low 90's NE 102 W), 8/7 (upper 90's NE - 105 W), 8/8 (mid 90's E - 102 W), 8/9 (low 90's NE - upper 90's W), 8/10 (mid 90's NE - 104 W).. Week Two Forecast, 8/11 - 8/18: Monsoon moisture will continue to move into the central Rockies, with some of it spilling over into the central High Plains region. No significant frontal boundary is indicated by the models to move into Nebraska during the period that would trigger a widespread precipitation event. Therefore, thunderstorm development will depend on daytime heating breaking the atmospheric cap that will be in place due to the upper air ridge being forecasted to dominate the central United States. Models indicate that the best opportunity for precipitation is assigned to the western ½ of Nebraska on 8/15. Isolated thunderstorms are possible anywhere in the state during the period, but current projections indicate that precipitation chances will likely be less than 20% on any given day. High Temperatures: 8/11 (upper 90's E - 104 W), 8/12 (upper 90's E - 104 W), 8/13-8/14 (upper 90's E - 104 W), 8/15 (upper 90's E, W - 104 C), 8/16-8/17 (upper 90's E 104 W).

Nebraska Weather and Crop Report Agricultural Summary: For the week ending July 29, 2012, little or no precipitation and above normal temperatures continued to wear on crops and pastures, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Precipitation was spotty, with only a few locations receiving over .25 inch, which did little to ease the impact of the ongoing drought. Condition declines were again noted in ratings of dryland crops and pastures. Drought damaged corn acres continue being chopped for silage or cut for hay to make up for pastures which are providing little or no grazing capacity. Irrigators continued their struggle with water demands and many livestock producers were hauling water due to dry ponds or moving stock close to home. Culling of livestock continues by producers with limited feed options. CRP acres were being requested for emergency forage use. Fire danger is high with local departments on alert. Weather Summary: Temperatures averaged 4 degrees

above normal for the week. Highs reached triple digits in most areas of the state. Lows were recorded in the 50’s in western counties and low 60’s in the east. Precipitation again was light with most regions of the state averaging less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall. Field Crops Report: Corn silked was 95 percent, ahead of 84 last year and 85 average. Corn in the dough stage was 39 percent, compared to 14 last year and a week and a half ahead of 17 average. Corn in the dent stage reached 9 percent, ahead of 0 last year and 1 average. Corn conditions continued to decline and rated 18 percent very poor, 19 poor, 28 fair, 32 good, and 3 excellent, well below 78 percent good to excellent last year and average. Irrigated corn conditions rated 55 percent good to excellent and dryland corn rated 5. Soybeans blooming were 92 percent, ahead of 76 last year and 78 average. Soybeans setting pods were 49 percent, ahead of 30 last year and 34 average. Soybean conditions declined Continued on page 11

Keep Germs Away When Traveling Near & Far By Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, Colfax County Travel can be fun and educational. When germs decide to go with us or meet us at our destination, the fun of travel diminishes. Being proactive and prepared for those germs can keep us happier and healthier. The American Cleaning Institute recommends that several items be included when packing. Hand sanitizers should be readily available. Keep a small bottle in your purse or bag; keep another in the car. Put that bottle of hand sanitizer in a small plastic bag in case of leakage. Hand wipes can also be used. Check the

expiration date. Remember, hand sanitizers and hand wipes do not take the place of washing with soap and water. Whether having a picnic at the county fair or along the side of the road, be sure to clean hands before touching the food. If camping nearby or far away, take along bar or liquid hand soap. If camping in the woods, be aware that bears are more attracted to some soaps than others. Clean commonly touched surfaces before using. This might be the picnic tables outside or the doorknobs, telephones and remote control in the hotel room. Disinfectant cleaning wipes work well for these jobs.

Stress is a Necessity By Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, Colfax County Ever wish you didn’t have any stress? Think again. We need stress in our lives. Stress adds challenge and opportunity to our life. It helps us become motivated. Too much stress, though, can be unhealthy both physically and mentally. Learning to use stress in a positive way is the key. Each person reacts to stress differently. Begin to recognize what is stressing you and identify productive ways to deal with stress. Try physical activity. When you are nervous, angry or upset, release the pressure through exercise or physical activity. Walking, running, weeding the garden or cleaning house are all productive ways to release that pent-up energy. Share your stress. Talk with someone about your concerns and problems. Friends, family members or clergy can often help you see your problem in a different light. Don’t be afraid to seek out professional help. Know your limits. Some problems are beyond our control and it seems like fighting a losing battle. If the problem cannot be changed at the moment, learn to accept it until you can change it. This doesn’t mean giving up. Instead, you are stepping back to re-look at the problem. Take care of yourself. Remember to eat and remember to rest, even when you are stressed. Lack of food and sleep can cause irritability which makes coping with stress more difficult.

Make time for fun. Everyone needs a break from daily routine. Some people can schedule play easier than others. Playtime is important for people of all ages. How a person fills his or her leisure hours is up to the individual. And remember, a ten-minute break often can do just as much good as a two hour break. Be a participant. Stress sometimes comes from feeling lonely. Instead of sitting and feeling sorry for yourself, become involved in the community. Helping others helps yourself. Check off your tasks. Trying to do everything at once is overwhelming and impossible. Still, many of us try to do it all and become frustrated. Try making a list of what needs to be done. Check the items off as you do them. Learn to identify what really needs to be done and what doesn’t. Accept that you don’t always have to be “right”. Try cooperation rather than confrontation; it’s better than fighting and always being “right”. A little give and take on both sides helps reduce strain and stress. It’s okay to cry. Crying is a physical release of tension. Create a quiet scene. Running away from a problem is not the answer. However, reading a book or listening to music can create a sense of peace and tranquility to rest your mind and body. A rested mind and body can better cope with the stresses in life. Avoid self-medication. Drugs and alcohol are not the answers to coping with stress. In fact, overuse of drugs and alcohol can lead to much more serious problems than our initial stresses.

Building Family Strengths in Times of Drought By Ruth Vonderohe, Extension Educator, Knox County “And what the heck can anybody do? There is nothing anybody can do for drought except wait for rain, that’s it!” Female farmer 2004 The quote at the beginning indicates that rain is the only thing that will help with the drought, and she is right in many respects. However research conducted over the past 30 years with more than 22,000 couples around the world indicates that strong families have certain characteristics that help each other cope with hard times. Family members must care about each other and let one another know it regularly. They must be willing to express feelings of love and not withhold it. Midwesterners, for example, typically have more difficulty expressing affection and inner emotions than other Americans. Why is that? It may have something to do with the way children were taught or personality type. If things are going well for you in personal relationships, you probably are doing OK. But if intuition tells you things aren’t going well, you may check to see how you might improve the way you show appreciation and affection to family members. One way to do this is to simply ask your mate or family members what they think! Commitment means being dedicated to one another’s well-being. Committed families are willing to invest time and energy in family activities and don’t allow work or other issues to

consume their lives. In other words, couple and family relationships are a priority and other things aren’t allowed to drain their emotional or physical energy to interfere with family interaction. Commitment to the couple relationship is a great part of this. During drought conditions, the partner relationship must be nurtured even through farmers/ranchers often feel they must work constantly to try to bring in an income or save a crop. Partners must help each other through difficult times; try to understand one another’s concerns, fears and reasoning. However, strong couples will help to balance each other and will let each other know when things are getting out of kilter. Successful couple and family relationships not only are about solving problems and resolving conflict, but strong families are good at taskoriented communication. They identify difficulties; stay focused on them, and find solutions that work reasonably well for all family members. Strong families also realize that the couple relationship between husband and wife is the main bond that holds the family together, and take time to nurture and prioritize this relationship. There still will be some conflict in strong families; in fact strong families are not afraid to air their feelings about a sensitive or problem issue because they live in a safe environment and trust each other. Even in times of drought, they will have some optimism and be grateful for the inch of rain, friends who came to visit, the daughter who called home or for time to talk with each other.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • Roundup Dos and Don’ts by Lee Pitts

Ranchers are inviting city folks to their brandings to educate them about our business. I applaud this move but realize that there’s never been any direction given as to how the townies are to conduct themselves. Until now, that is. Here is a list of dos and don’ts on how to win friends and influence cowboys at the next branding. DON’T buy a brand new pair of boots and a brand new cowboy hat and then wear them to a branding. Your feet will hurt and some jovial cowboy will fill your new hat to the brim with cow manure as a practical joke. DON’T wear spurs with your Bermuda shorts either. DO wear a sensible pair of athletic shoes because you are going to be doing a lot of running away from mad cows who have had their babies temporarily kidnapped from them. You are also going to be dodging red hot branding irons, sharp needles and ropes that will feel like barbed wire running through your bare hands. But DON’T wear gloves; the cowboys will think you’re a big sissy and the doctors in the emergency room will have a hard time finding your severed fingers amidst all the coagulated blood concentrated in the finger tips of your gloves. DON'T ask for a BandAid or pain medication either. Suck it up. Make sure your medical insurance is paid up and that you are within two hours of a good hospital. And you might want to

consider having a Medivac chopper standing by. DON’T ask if you can brand, give shots or use the knife to turn the bull calves into steers. This is serious business and a rancher could lose money and respect if some dude in low shoes put a brand on upside down, gave a shot that caused a bulbous growth, or only removed half of a bulls’ manhood. Your job is to work the ground crew which means you get to tackle huge calves all day. DO try to lift with your back. DON’T complain or expect thanks. This isn’t a party or a place to network. There are no invitations, you don’t have to RSVP and there isn’t a reception where canapés and cocktails are served. Everyone works for free, plain and simple. After all... this is the cow business. This isn’t about you. DO come expecting to be exploited and abused. DO leave home your attitude, boom box, cell phone, dogs, girlfriend or mistress, unless she makes great desserts, or is built like a fullback and can flip calves on their right side. Especially DON’T bring a knucklehead horse. You aren’t going to get to ride and rope anyway as there’s barely enough calves to rope as it is for the real cowboys to get their fair share. DO bring donuts, preferably chocolate with sprinkles on them. This isn’t the Civil War where you can pay someone to take your place. If you

aren’t going to work by all means DO feel free to stay home. DON’T get all queasy and faint if you’re forced to eat you’re share of mountain oysters as part of your initiation, or if you happen to see severed body parts, blood and other body fluids. They probably belonged to a cowboy anyway. It’s called a branding because we brand our cattle. This is a branding, not Show and Tell so DON’T take hidden videos and then put them on You Tube. Branding is a timetested method of livestock identification and it doesn’t hurt the calves any more than those hideous tattoos you have all over your body. DON’T expect any free beef to take home, or to be allowed to hunt on the ranch just because you gave a little free labor and broke your arm in three places. Let the real hands wash up first and DON’T ask to use the bathroom in the house. Never use the disinfectant wipes your wife carries in her purse. At the barbecue afterwards DON’T ask if they have chicken, sushi or a vegetarian entree. DON’T be an idiot or sue anyone at the conclusion of the day’s activities. If you follow all these rules the real cowboys might just let you wear a Stetson and Justin Ropers and buy all the beer at the county fair this summer.

Miscellaneous Tariff Bill Keeps Nebraska Manufacturers Competitive by Congressman Adrian Smith Scottsbluff Office 416 Valley View Drive, Suite 600 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Phone: (308) 633-6333 Fax: (308) 633-6335

America’s economy is stagnant and showing few signs of growth. The private sector is being strangled by government regulation, an overlycomplex and uncompetitive tax code, and uncertainty generated by the threat of tax increases, an onerous health care law, and the ever expanding national debt. One of the bright stars, though, remains our ag economy, driven by expanded trade and finding new markets abroad for Nebraska products. As an advocate of increased international trade and a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, I am committed to reducing taxes and tariffs to increase trade and American competitiveness in a global economy. In the past, Congress acted to close our borders, believing doing so would protect U.S. manufacturing and producers. Multinational manufacturing and international supply chains have evolved, though, and we now know free and fair trade is economically advantageous for America and Nebraska. To keep pace with our international competition, Congress developed the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) to temporarily suspend previously levied import taxes on necessary manufacturing inputs which are not sold or available in the U.S. Suspending these tariffs reduces the cost of U.S. manufactured goods, making them more

affordable and attractive to domestic and international consumers. The reduced cost of production benefits consumers both here and abroad, protecting jobs at home and reducing our trade deficit. The largest category of goods imported into the United States is not consumer goods, but capital goods used to create value-added finished products. For example, Nebraska manufacturers import raw materials not found in the U.S., and then export their manufactured products to consumers around the world, benefiting our local economy. The MTB process also fosters more competition between domestic producers because prohibitive tariffs can prevent smaller start-up businesses from gaining a foothold in an industry. The MTB supports an estimated 90,000 jobs, increases U.S. production by $4.6 billion and expands U.S. GDP by $3.5 billion. Congress must renew the MTB by the end of this year to expand opportunities for U.S. manufacturers to benefit from suspended duties on imports. Failure to act only benefits foreign manufacturers who do not face the same punitive tariffs. In the past, the duty suspension process has been conducted with little transparency, raising concerns the bill could be open to earmarks or limited tariff benefits to a single entity. However, I have supported an updated process developed in

Washington Office 503 Cannon House Office Building Washington, D.C. 20515 Phone: (202) 225-6435 Fax: (202) 225-0207

the Ways and Means Committee to increase transparency and ensure the MTB is in accordance with House Rules and the earmark moratorium. The MTB provisions now are fully vetted by the public, the independent International Trade Commission and the Executive Branch before being included in the final bill. The additional steps ensure the proposed tariff suspension would not be limited to a few entities, but instead available to anyone wishing to import the product. Despite the unprecedented transparency of this process, some continue to call for Congress to cede this authority to the Executive Branch. Providing more unchecked authority to an already bloated Executive Branch, however, would be misguided. The MTB process promotes good government, allowing Congress to carry out its constitutional responsibility to “lay and collect taxes and duties,” under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, while providing an open process for individuals to submit public comments. Given the weak state of our economy, Congress should use any and all means to reduce burdens imposed by government to encourage private sector growth and jobs. Congress can accomplish this goal in part by passing an MTB before the end of the year to give certainty to manufacturers and promote American exports and competitiveness.

Growing State Economies By Governor Dave Heineman Lincoln Office/State Capitol P.O. Box 94848 Lincoln, NE 68509-4848 Phone: 402-471-2244 Fax: 402-471-6031

This past year, I’ve served as Chair of the National Governors Association. This gave me the opportunity to work with Governors from the United States’ 55 states, territories and commonwealths to study, discuss and develop best practices that help foster entrepreneurship and innovation. Each year, the Chair develops a policy initiative that can impact discussions in states across the nation. My initiative, Growing State Economies, lead a national discussion and focus on developing strategies that impact entrepreneurs and startup companies that help them become fast-growing firms. We held four regional summits to highlight regional strengths and opportunities. The four regional economic development summits were held throughout 2011 and 2012 in Hartford, Connecticut, Nashville, Tennessee, Seattle, Washington, and Omaha. The results, published in two reports for Governors, are six drivers of growth and 12 actions for growing state economies. Policymakers with responsibility for growing economies can create a locally meaningful strategy by following 12 basic actions to help the private sector grow and thrive, creating new job opportunities for their citizens. The 12 Actions for Growing State Economies are as follows: 1.Create a competitive tax and regulatory environment.

2.Put entrepreneurial activity at the top of the state’s economic agenda. 3.Distinguish among different kinds of entrepreneurs and businesses and target policies and resources accordingly. 4.Cast a wide net to find entrepreneurs. 5.Teach entrepreneurship skills and attitudes at all education levels. 6.Build a startup environment and culture. 7.Find the potential high-growth companies and help them grow. 8.Get your entrepreneurs to give back. 9.Help companies open doors to new customers – globally and locally. 10.Reward strong ties among universities, companies, and entrepreneurs. 11.Encourage entrepreneurs and companies, small and large, to build innovation clusters. 12.Build ecosystems, not programs. The six drivers of growth are: •Entrepreneurs – individuals who seed, grow and renew businesses •Education and Skills – the concentration of highly educated, skilled individuals within economies. •Innovation and technology – new ideas and technologies that enter the economy and change what is produced, how it is produced, and the way production itself is organized.

•Private Capital – the sufficiency and availability of debt and equity financing at all states of company formation •Global Markets and Linkages – businesses competing successfully in global markets •Industry Clusters – firms embedded in regional clusters supported by institutions providing education, training, finance, and marketing services These reports mention Nebraska several times in which our state excelled. For example, in partnership with Gallup, Nebraska is using its Entrepreneur Acceleration System to identify small-to-medium sized businesses with high growth potential. This program begins by identifying the entrepreneurial ability of the individual who heads a particular firm, and then Gallup’s research indicates that certain individuals have innate qualities that make them more likely to achieve extraordinary success as entrepreneurs, leading to high business growth and ultimately job creation. The NGA is a forum for governors to work in bipartisan manner to share insight and feedback that advances economic and job growth in states across America. I was pleased to share Nebraska’s success with other states and to learn from other states what else we could be doing to strengthen Nebraska’s economy.

Don’t Overtax Our Economy by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

Recently in the Senate, we’ve been debating whether to allow a massive tax increase on our job creators and every American taxpayer at the end of the year. This is exactly what will happen if Congress doesn’t act. I strongly oppose allowing a tax increase with our economy still struggling and our job creators still struggling to put Americans back to work. The bills being considered in the Senate approach our economic struggles from the completely wrong direction. For example, one bill I opposed, which did not pass, sought to punish businesses which establish aspects of their operations outside our borders. Beyond political talking points, this would do nothing to confront the reasons why businesses are moving overseas in the first place. Why aren’t American businesses staying in America, and how can we encourage them to stay? These are the questions we must be asking. The answer lies in the fact that, despite class-dividing messaging about taxes, the corporate tax rate in the United States is the highest of any country in

Scottsbluff Office: 115 Railway Street, Suite C102 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Tel: (308) 632-6032 Fax: (308) 632-6295

the world. You can literally set up shop anywhere around the globe and you’d be paying lower tax rates than if you did so in Kearney or Cozad. Business owners have to make smart business decisions to thrive, and the bottom line is our tax code discourages locating operations in the United States. Instead of making the tax code more conducive to American job creation, the Senate is wasting time on political messaging votes. Job creators could be hiring more at home if tax rates elsewhere weren’t so much lower than they are here. Instead of playing politics we should be working to update our tax code and deal with our crippling debt, and the first step should be preventing the January 1 tax increase. In 2010, when he signed a two-year extension of the current tax rates, President Obama himself asserted it was a bad idea to raise taxes in a struggling economy. He has since changed his mind and would have you believe it’s now a good idea. This despite the fact that our economy is growing at a slower rate than two years ago, when

the President said the economy was too fragile to raise taxes; despite the fact that, according to a new study, letting these taxes go back up will actually shrink the economy by about 1.3 percent and lead directly to about 710,000 job losses; and despite the fact that, according to IRS data, the average Nebraskan’s taxes would go up by nearly $2,500. Some argue it would cost too much to prevent this take hike on our job creators, yet the additional revenue from the President’s plan would fund the federal government for less than three days. The answer to our economic struggle is not to raise taxes, making it harder for job creators to grow and compete, and decreasing the buying power of Nebraska families. Nebraskans need less government in their lives, not more. Nebraska families and businesses need more of the money they’ve earned to help make our economy and their own lives better. I will continue pursuing policies in the Senate toward that goal.

UNL, FARM Team up for Harvest Festival By Brandon Nelson, The Scottsbluff Star Herald When the Farm And Ranch Museum holds its annual Harvest Festival this year, one of the brightest fall colors will be red. The museum is teaming up with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to add to the festival's palette of education and entertainment. An annual showcase of projects and programs in western Nebraska, the UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center's Expo, will move to September to bring the latest agricultural research findings to the Harvest Festival. The Expo and Harvest Festival will run Sept. 15 and 16 at FARM, near Scotts Bluff National Monument. The addition marks a significant change from previous years, especially for the Expo. The Expo and its earlier incarnations, the Big Red Fair and the Panhandle Center Field Day, were usually held in early August or late July at the Research and Extension Center headquarters and research plots. Dr. Jeff Bradshaw, assistant professor of Entomology and extension specialist, said the reasons for the change of date and venue were to distance the event from fair week, boost attendance and reach a wider audience. "It moves it away from the county and state fair, and that allows 4-H to get more involved than before," Bradshaw said. "Numbers were

going down and we wanted to reach a broader community." Dr. Linda Boeckner, the PREC director, said her facility has been focusing on presenting its work and research to people outside of the agricultural community and promoting "ag literacy." Typically, the Harvest Festival alone draws in about 2,000 people, and Boeckner said combining the two events will benefit the community by bringing more opportunities for agricultural education to one location. "It's an opportunity to touch base with the community," Boeckner said. "We have an interest in ag literacy and in helping to teach children and older adults about what is exciting about ag." The UNL Expo and Harvest Festival theme will relate to edible, dry beans. Boeckner said the crops has seen many recent innovations. From breeding to developing crops that can survive in low-moisture conditions, Boeckner said there are many ways researchers can approach the study of beans. "Dry beans are a long-standing research interest," Boeckner said. "We are able to work on that commodity from many different angles." History will also be a main focus, as this year marks the 150-year anniversary of the, the Homestead Act, the organization of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Morrill Act, which created the land grants for UNL and other universities. Also, FARM Curator Nancy

Haney said the museum will demonstrate modern and historic versions of bean harvesting and cutting equipment. "You'll get to see the improvement of the equipment here," Haney said. "With the Panhandle station coming in, you'll get to see the improvement of the crop itself." Haney said people who attend the festival will get to see the bean industry from both a technological and scientific standpoint. She said PREC's involvement will enrich the festival's theme and give visitors even more things to do in terms of entertainment, education and participation. "We're really excited. I think it's a win-win for all of us. I really do," Haney said. "It's a good blend for both organizations." Currently, the UNL Expo committee is working with FARM board members to plan the event. In addition to the FARM attractions, a tentative list of UNL topics includes plant pathology, tourism, new crops for western Nebraska, innovations in beef production, insect science, student recruitment, the UNL water machine and dry bean-breeding program, Also, in support of the student scholarship program, Bradshaw said PREC will host an ice cream and brownie fundraiser "We want to have that element of the university involved in what we do," Haney said. "We wouldn't be here if we didn't have the Panhandle station."

Whitney: A Woman of the Land By Sandra Hansen, The Scottsbluff Star Herald MINATARE — As a child, Rhonda Whitney preferred to be outside with her father tending to the livestock on their farm near Fort Morgan, Colo. Now, decades later, she still prefers outside jobs, and has invested her future in farming and cattle. Whitney, the mother of five, and grandmother of 12, lives on a farm east of Minatare, one of three that she has purchased in the past eight years. Although her focus is on cattle, she does raise crops, especially alfalfa to sell or feed. The Whitney family moved to western Nebraska in 1991, where they ran 450 head of cattle, as well as did custom haying. When times changed, Whitney struck out on her own in 1997, and did a variety of jobs before she took ownership of her first farm in 2004. She has been able to acquire the properties through a USDA Farm Service Agency program. She obtained annual operating loans, intermediate operating loana, and real estate loans. She graduated to a regular commercial lender, Farm Credit, 2011, and presently has only real estate loans with FSA. Whitney has set a good model for her family, as well. Her son Shane, and grandchildren, Henry and Hanah Schmall, have followed suit and obtained FSA loans to help them get started in agricultural careers. For her part, Whitney said she has always preferred to be out of doors. "You couldn’t beat me with a stick to get me to stay in the house," she said, laughing at the memory of spending as much

time as possible playing with the cows or riding around with her father. The family lived on a dryland farm, then moved to an irrigated operation and had a dairy herd of Holsteins. "I thought a lot about it, when I bought the first farm," she said while sitting in her living room, just a few miles from most of her children. "But I thought it was the opportunity of a life time, so I dived in." Whitney was eligible for a loan through the local Farm Service Agency, and started with a place south of Bayard and 50 head of cattle. A few years later, she again took advantage of an opportunity and acquired a second operation. She thinks she might have been the only woman to apply in that deal. She obtained her third farm when her daughter, Renee, decided to give up farming and concentrate on her growing family. "It’s a little stressful sometimes, but if not for FSA, I’d have a job in town, and I wouldn’t like that," Whitney declared. All of Whitney’s farms are irrigated, and she leases pasture for her cattle. She has 142 pairs on grass and 10 dairy cows, which nurture the dozens of "bottle" calves she buys. Whitney said that although her favorite part of her operation is the livestock, the loans require her to be the main farmer. She has no objection to

that, but she doesn’t like to plow, so she gets someone else to do that job. She does have a good back-up crew if needed. All but one of her five children live within five miles of her home. Ross farms north of Moowmaw Corner and works for BNSF. Shane farms nearby, and Roland and his family live a mile or so north of Whitney’s home. Renee still lives a few miles away, and her husband works for BNSF. Wesley lives at Torrington and works for TDS. "I’m pretty proud of my family," Whitney said with a big smile. "Out of five children, four of them farm." A third generation of off-spring are getting into the farming/livestock business as well. High school students Henry and Hanah Schmall, Renee’s children, have FSA youth loans and small livestock operations. Getting to where she is today, Whitney has worked for Simplot and waited tables, among other jobs, but nothing beats the stress and enjoyment of operating her own farms. "With FSA there are a lot of hoops to jump through, but where would we be without it," she asked, standing in the corral watching the bottle calves hanging out, and the cows maneuvering for a place in the shade. "I’m doing what I love to do."

Rhonda Whitney, second from left, called on her son Shane, left, and grandchildren, Hanah and Henry Schmall, to help tell her story during a recent Sunday afternoon on the farm east of Minatare. Farm Service Agency loans have launched all three on agriculture careers.

Corn trade pushed into record highs before moving into choppy trading midweek. December futures reached a new contract high at $8.20 on Tuesday. Outside markets have been choppy as well, and have not added much direction this week. September futures are 2 higher on the week heading into Thursday, and the December was 4 higher. The front month spreads have traded back to flat as demand continues to dissipate up front. New crop corn is expected in early to mid August, with some reports of corn being picked in Illinois coming in already. Export inspections improved to 21.5 million which is still behind the USDA pace. Imports from Brazil were confirmed by Smithfield into the Southeast US, and are expected to continue through April. Weekly export sales were within expectations at 201,000 metric tons, but this is still a low number. New crop margins may be worse than old crop margins coming forward on ethanol. Livestock producers and some end users are raising more questions about the ethanol mandate. There are sufficient loopholes in the program to back production off significantly in the government does not act. On the Monday afternoon crop conditions report provided another 2% decline in the good to excellent ratings down to 24%. Poor to very poor moved to 48%. Crop conditions are at the lowest levels since they started the ratings in the 1980’s. The weather forecast looks better but is too late to do much for the corn. Demand is clearly being reduced at this point, but so is yield. End users have poor coverage past August, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of panic buying surfacing either. The market has acted toppier this week, so that must be watched. Hedgers call with questions. If you are debating your hedging strategy after this very nice upside run, or how to manage crop insurance give us a call to assist.

Wheat trade has seen pressure going into midweek with spring wheat harvest going well, and Russia insisting they have sufficient grain for their export program. The September contract weekly net changes are 19 lower in Chicago, 22 lower in KC and 34 lower in Minneapolis. Winter wheat harvest is effectively complete. Spring wheat conditions rose 7% to 63% good to excellent, and harvest is now 28% complete. We have seen some good early spring wheat harvest numbers. Canada is in good shape weather wise, with ample moisture and increased acres. Former Soviet Union production continues to contract with stress on the filling spring wheat acres. Russian production levels have fallen to the point where they have limited exports in the past. They have a government meeting on the grain crop scheduled for next Wednesday. Black sea origin is significantly cheaper for the moment, but buyers are reluctant to bid beyond October. Wheat exports were good at 521,000 metric tons after the strength of the US dollar has eroded the US price advantage in the near term along with the rally. We need several weeks of 750,000 tons or more to provide fundamental support to our wheat trade from US export demand. Wheat should follow row crops near term, if the corn yields continue to crater; there will likely be a resumption of wheat feeding talk this fall. Export shipments have improved this week, with 18.6 million bushels. Australia continues to edge towards drought as well. Argentina is expected to have lower acres as well, but have caught some rains to establish stands. Hedgers call with questions. Make sure you are looking at 2013 prices on this rally to start a program for next year.

Soybean trade has continued to be extremely volatile and choppy to start the week, with weather forecasts fluctuating. September beans are 11 higher for the week, and November beans are 28 higher, with expansive daily trading ranges. Meal is $10 higher, and oil is 30 points lower. Crop conditions dropped 2% to 29% good to excellent on Monday which is the lowest rating for this time of year since 1988. The weather forecast is looking more promising for the eastern and western parts of the belt in the near term, but the central part looks drier. Last week’s rain coverage was generally disappointing. Export basis bids have slipped and are showing more signs of demand rationing. South America remains on the sidelines. Export shipments have remained elevated at 15.5 million, and still ahead of the USDA pace. The USDA announced 244,000 metric tons of bean export sales, 270,000 metric tons of meal, and 10,300 of soyoil. Demand for protein with the slowing ethanol grind will support meal. Fund length is still pretty big, so there could be surprising selling on weakness. Hedgers call with questions.

HEINEMAN PRAISES TRADE AGREEMENT WITH CHINA

NEBRASKA WEATHER AND CROP REPORT

Continued from page 1 dividends as we continue pursuing a mutually beneficial relationship," he said. Joining Heineman on his mission are Norm and Sue Krug of Preferred Popcorn in Chapman. Preferred Popcorn grows and processes premium popcorn for bulk sales and microwave popcorn in 52 countries. "We have been coming to China for several years in an effort to market our popcorn, which is all Nebraska-grown product," Norm Krug said. He said the goal when forming Preferred Popcorn was to expand the market for Nebraskagrown popcorn. Nebraska is normally the first or second leading popcorn-growing state in the U.S. "It became clear, pretty early in the game, that the government is involved in China," Krug said. "There are many similarities, but there is one key difference " there are 37 million people here. "That makes them even better partners because we have an amazing ability to produce food here in Nebraska, and they need a lot of food here (China)," he said. "I see a tremendous future here for Nebraska farmers and all entrepreneurs in Nebraska." Krug said he joined Heineman on the trade mission to learn more about how to do business in China. "We have had some great meetings and have been able to establish some great relationships," Krug said. Heineman said Preferred Popcorn is "engaged in global, international activities." "They sell their products throughout the world," he said. China is Nebraska's fourth largest trading partner, according to Heineman. He said Nebraska exports to China have more than doubled during the past five years, with a 36 percent increase in 2011. Combined exports to China totaled more than $380 million last year, up from nearly $279 million in 2010. He said trade is becoming an increasingly important topic for Nebraska's businesses and agriculture economy. According to Heineman,

Page 11

Nebraska has seen tremendous growth in its exports in recent years. Exports totaled $7.5 billion in 2011, representing a 31 percent increase from 2010, and a 19.4 percent increase from 2009. Nebraska's leading trade partners in 2011 were Canada and Mexico, followed by Japan, China, and South Korea. Of the top five, the percent of export growth between 2009 and 2011 was largest for China and South Korea. China's annual growth was 34.8 percent during that time period, while South Korea's was 52.2 percent. Heineman said Shaanxi has a strong agricultural industry and shares many similarities and relationships with Nebraska. Geographically, Shaanxi is near the center of China. Economically, it is a strong province that has rapidly strengthened its economic ties with the U.S. during the last 10 years. "We believe that a long-term strategic partnership with a province with so many similarities with Nebraska will be mutually beneficial," Heineman said. Also joining Heineman is Nebraska Economic Development Director Catherine Lang. She said agriculture is the base of Shaanxi's economy, but the province is also experiencing "strong economic growth in many of the industries that are similar to the industries that we have in Nebraska." Lang said the sister-state relationship is important to Nebraska because, "in China, the government is an important part of the economic effort for its companies." "Shaanxi Province is very encouraging of its companies to invest in foreign countries," Lang said. "That support and their support of trade missions will create a consistent relationship with Nebraska companies and the state." Lang said Shaanxi Province is the home of Easyway International, a logistics and trading company specializing in textiles and agriculture. It was Nebraska's first Chinese investment that was a result of the 2008 reverse trade mission.

Rodeo Champion Serves As Volunteer Phillipsburg, KS – Rodeo champions rarely show up at a rodeo to volunteer. But that’s exactly what has happened in Phillipsburg. The 1978 steer wrestling champion of Kansas' Biggest Rodeo now gives of his time as a volunteer at the same rodeo. John Boyington was in college when he won the steer wrestling over 30 years ago, and he was about to start veterinarian school. He had been competing in the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association, and he knew that summer was “my last hurrah,” as he put it. So he went to a lot of rodeos, steer wrestling in Denver, Houston, Ft. Worth, Cheyenne, Tucson, Calgary, and Phillipsburg, winning enough money to qualify for the Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo that fall. The Phillipsburg resident grew up in Goodland with parents who support his and his siblings’ rodeo activities. After being accepted into Kansas State University’s vet school in the spring of 1978, he continued his pro rodeo career, knowing that

once vet school began, everything outside of school would be curtailed. The Prairie Circuit Finals in Wichita was the last professional rodeo in which he competed. In 1978, “I stopped rodeoing at that point. I was at the peak of my (rodeo) career, but had to make a decision between rodeo or vet school.” His focused shifted because “they weren't going to flunk me out of vet school. It was too difficult to get in.” After graduation in 1982, Dr. Boyington practiced in Missouri, Texas and Ulysses, Kansas, before opening his own practice, Crossroads Vet Clinic, in Phillipsburg in 1990. He served on the Kansas' Biggest Rodeo board for about 14 years, and for the last seven years has coordinated the rodeo’s ticket sales, ordering tickets and organizing help for the ticket office. He has also volunteered his professional expertise as the official rodeo veterinarian for the last 21 years, being on site for every performance of the rodeo.

Being an equine vet and a former contestant, he has a unique perspective of pro rodeo. “You realize how important (horses) are to these rodeo contestants. A lot of people don't realize what goes into making a rodeo horse. Their horse is their livelihood.” His championship win at the Phillipsburg rodeo came about a month after he got married. For him and his new bride, Donna, the stop in Phillipsburg, along with other rodeos, was “a rodeo honeymoon.” An avid rodeo competitor herself, Donna was the perfect traveling partner. “It was good times back then.” Rodeo “was really in my blood,” Boyington said. “Just like a lot of different sports, you get obsessed with them. I thought I had the talent to go on and maybe make it to the National Finals Rodeo.” John and Donna have two children: a son who is a student at Kansas State, and a daughter in high Continued on page 17

State Fair Livestock Facilities Have Been Busy this Summer By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent It has been a very good year for the Nebraska State Fair livestock facilities. Completed nearly three years ago before the fair moved from Lincoln to its new home in Grand Island, the livestock facilities came into their own this year, hosting three national livestock shows and having Five Points Bank become corporate sponsor of the Livestock Arena. As Jana Kruger, State Fair board chairwoman, said, "The first success that is often overlooked is the fact that we moved the fair and built these fabulous facilities in 414 days." Since then, those facilities have received good national exposure and have become some of the nation's top showcases for the livestock industry. The highlight so far this year has been hosting three national livestock shows in June and July

that brought to the facilities 1,311 youth exhibitors showing 2,320 head of cattle. After those three shows, the facilities hosted the Hall County Fair. Prior to the national livestock shows, a corporate donation from Five Points Bank created the opportunity to rename the Livestock Arena as Five Points Bank Arena. The bank has made a 10year, $750,000 endowment to the State Fair for the naming rights. Continued on page 17

LINCOLN – Nebraska soybean farmers and farm managers can get the latest in productionpractice research, as well as a chance to win some fuel, by attending Nebraska’s annual Soybean Management Field Days, held Aug. 14–17 on four Nebraska farms. The Nebraska Soybean Board, national soy checkoff and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln invite farmers to bring as many of their fellow farmers as they can find to this free event. That’s because the more people they bring, the better their chances are to win up to 300 gallons of B5 biodiesel (a blend of 5 percent biodiesel with 95 percent petroleum diesel). Two B5 biodiesel drawings will be conducted at each of the four field days, one for repeat attendees and one for folks who are new to the event. Each repeat attendee will receive one entry for each new soybean farmer attendee they help register. Those soybean farmers will also have their names entered one time each into a drawing for biodiesel. Winners of biodiesel need not be present to win. “We want farmers to bring a neighbor or two,” says Victor Bohuslavsky, executive director of the Nebraska Soybean Board. “If the repeat attendees bring a truckload, they can be placed in the drawing for biodiesel several times, which is a nice incentive to attend this field day.” University of Nebraska extension agents and industry consultants will address several topics, including soybean seed treatments; row spacing and seed rates; soybean-variety development and breeding-advancement; and soil fertility options for soybean production. The soy checkoff is sponsoring the Field Days as a part of its LandGrant College and University Technology and

Information Transfer, a soy-checkoff-sponsored program that helps provide soybean research results to farmers. “The Soybean Management Field Days provide an excellent opportunity for soybean farmers to see research being conducted in their own backyard and have discussions on topics and issues that are very relevant to soybean production across the state,” says Keith Glewen, University of Nebraska extension educator. Registration begins each day at 9 a.m. One-hour sessions rotate from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All attendees will receive free lunch and an opportunity to receive certified crop adviser credits. Farm locations include the Tim Rowe farm in Lexington, the Bob Kracl farm in O’Neill, the Keith Pillen farm in Platte Center and the Hotovy farm in David City. “We’ve always been extremely happy about the turnout and end results of the previous field days,” says Bohuslavsky. “We look forward to this being another successful year for us.” For official contest rules and information on the event, visit http://ardc.unl.edu/soydays. The 69 farmer-directors of USB oversee the investments of the soy checkoff to maximize profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers. These volunteers invest and leverage checkoff funds to increase the value of U.S. soy meal and oil, to ensure U.S. soybean farmers and their customers have the freedom and infrastructure to operate, and to meet the needs of U.S. soy’s customers. As stipulated in the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soy checkoff.

STATE FAIR LIVESTOCK FACILITIES HAVE BEEN BUSY THIS SUMMER

RODEO CHAMPION SERVES AS.... Continued from page 13

Continued from page 15 "It is the beginning of great things to come," said Joseph McDermott, executive director of the Nebraska State Fair. "This sponsorship allows for an endowment for Fonner Park to use in the upkeep of the Five Points Bank Arena for the 10 months per year that it is under their care." The first of the shows was the annual AmericanInternational Junior Charolais Association Junior National Charolais Show and Leadership Conference. According to organizers, the event drew 260 junior exhibitors from 24 states, including as far west as California and as far east as Maryland, along with about 300 parents. The event showcased 434 of the nation's best Charolais cattle. Larry Dybdal, a board member of the Nebraska Charolais Association, which hosted the Junior National Charolais Show, said having the show at the State Fair grounds was "a good opportunity to show off the spacious new livestock barn facilities and the Five Points Bank Arena." "It was a major factor for bringing the show year," Dybdal said. "This facility is second to none in the nation. We have had so many compliments on how this complex is set up and everything about this area." Following the Charolais show, the Five Points Bank Arena hosted the Junior National Shorthorn Expo, which made its first appearance in Nebraska since 1988, when it was in Omaha. The show drew 391 youth from 29 states and one from Australia who entered 526 cattle in the show. The American Shorthorn Association is headquartered in Omaha. The Junior National Shorthorn is the third-largest youth cattle show in the nation. Gwen Crawford of Omaha, director of junior activities for the American Shorthorn Association, said one of the reasons Grand Island was chosen to host the expo was the nationally recognized livestock facilities at the State Fair grounds. "It is a brand new facility that was actually large enough to hold us," Crawford said. "That seems to be our biggest problem when finding a facility. But we couldn't be happier. It is just a beautiful place." The third national show was the 2012 Junior National Hereford Show, which brought more than 660 exhibitors from 37 states and more than 1,360 Herefords to the State Fair grounds for the

six-day show. Participants came from as far away as Washington and New Jersey. The livestock shows were held during the prolonged drought, but the spacious facilities were designed to provide as much comfort as possible for the animals and exhibitors. The Five Points Bank Arena is air-conditioned. Kruger said hosting three national shows during a stretch of incredibly hot weather had its challenges. "I must commend our staff and ground crew for hanging in there and being on call 24-7 to be sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible," she said. "I encouraged our board members to come and see the facilities in use, as we talk and make plans to move forward. The visitors that I had a chance to talk with loved the facility, the air conditioning, ease of unloading and the arena." McDermott said there were plenty of challenges in hosting three consecutive national livestock shows. "Quite honestly, these three livestock shows back to back �taxed' the livestock facilities and staff more than the fair does, and both passed with flying colors," he said. "I'm not sure we could have asked for more when it comes to the facilities." McDermott said there were "very few problems and many favorable comments from exhibitors from around the country." "We know, with the success we experienced during these three shows, the facilities will continue to work well during the fair even as we experience growth in our livestock numbers," he said. The livestock facilities and the many visitors they are attracting, during both the fair and the off-season, are providing an economic boost to the community in terms of lodging, dining and retail opportunities. "As I continue to visit with people in Grand Island and Central Nebraska, people are genuinely excited about the fair being in Grand Island and want to share in our success," McDermott said. "They want to get involved in some way, whether that means volunteering, exhibiting their livestock or other goods or just attending the fair to be educated and entertained. That tells me Nebraskans want to take ownership of the Nebraska State Fair, and that bodes well for our future."

school. Both participated in equine activities and enjoy horses. Boyington is still surprised to think that he has a practice in the same community where he won a gold buckle. He’s won more than a championship in Phillipsburg, but also a home. “It’s a wonderful community. Being in a small town, you know everyone. It’s a great place to live and raise a family.”

John Boyington won the steer wrestling at Kansas' Biggest Rodeo before starting his own vet practice in Phillipsburg, Kansas in 1990.

HEARTLAND CATTLEMAN Dedicated to the Livestock Industry

Farm Bureau Seeks Disaster Assistance for Livestock Producers By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent As the impact of the drought grips both crop and livestock operations across the state, the Nebraska Farm Bureau is asking members of Nebraska's congressional delegation to consider separating the livestock disaster assistance programs from the Farm Bill so they can be passed on their own. "Our clear preference is for the House to pass its version of the Farm Bill and then work with the Senate to finalize a new, full five-year Farm Bill that provides certainty for Nebraska farmers," Nebraska Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson said. "However, we recognize that polarized politics in Washington may prevent this from happening and our livestock producers need access now to disaster assistance programs due to the extreme drought that has left livestock producers with few options." The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office, reported Monday, for the week ending Sunday, pasture and range conditions were rated 51 percent very poor, 32 percent poor, 14 percent fair, 3 percent good and 0 percent excellent. Last year, the state's pasture and range conditions were rated 78 percent good or excellent and the fiveyear average is 73 percent good or excellent. In Grand Island, this is the 10th straight month in which temperatures have been above the 30-year average. Temperatures were 15 degrees above normal in March, bringing plants, trees and grasses out of winter dormancy. Cool season pasture and range grasses quickly depleted the subsoil moisture profile and by late spring, when warm season

grasses began to grow, the lack of rain and subsoil moisture stunted grass growth. That led many producers to begin to cull their herds as the caring capacity of pastures and rangeland began to dramatically diminish. Supplemental feeding is expensive because of high hay and feed costs. Many cattle began showing up in Nebraska feedlots as fast as they could be weaned. With nearly 10 million acres of corn planted this year, the largest acreage since 1933, the drought and warm temperatures have diminished the crop's quality and quantity, with the corn crop rated 35 percent good or excellent, compared to last year's 78 percent good or excellent. Irrigated corn was rated 55 percent good or excellent and dryland corn, with more than 4 million acres planted this year, was rated 5 percent good or excellent. The USDA reported that drought-damaged corn continues to be chopped for silage or hay for livestock to make up for the lack of grazing capacity. The USDA has opened many CRP fields for emergency haying or grazing, but the fire risk is high because of the dry conditions. The cattle industry last year in Nebraska, according to the USDA, had cash receipts of $8.6 billion. As Farm Bureau's Nelson noted in his letter to members of Nebraska's congressional delegation, the federal crop insurance program is designed to aid crop farmers dealing with drought, but assistance for livestock farmers is dependent on livestock disaster assistance programs. Funding for those programs expired toward the end of last year. "While we would ideally like to see the livestock programs reauthorized as part of a

new farm bill, Nebraska's livestock producers are facing life-altering decisions about the future of their farms and ranches," he said. According to Nelson, the carryover effect of hay and other forage being sent last year to Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to assist with drought has left shortened supplies. This, coupled with the rapid deterioration of pasture and range land, has put many cow-calf producers in the position of scrambling to find expensive feed to retain their herds or in a position of reducing or even completely liquidating cow herds. "These are very challenging times for those who raise livestock and it's important we consider all available options to help our state's livestock farmers," Nelson said. According to Kevin Good, senior market analyst for CattleFax, 70 percent of the U.S. cattle inventory is located in regions of drought. "The widespread drought has ultimately led to the worst pasture conditions in the past 15 years," said Good. "The U.S. calf crop is down 800,000 head. The bottom line, when all is said and done, the cattle herd will decrease by about 500,000 head. This is compared to a 900,000 decrease a year ago, so we are seeing a liquidation but at a slower pace than last year." For Nebraska and communities such as Grand Island, that could have a long-term economic impact as Nebraska is the nation's top commercial red meat producer and top cattle butcher. The JBS plant in Grand Island employs more than 2,500 people and slaughters more than 5,000 head daily.

Western Nebraska: All classes trading steady to firm. Hay movement is slow, but buyer demand and interest are picking up. The last two weeks the CME September Corn contract has hovered around the 8.00, as data released from the U.S. Drought Monitor has 38 percent of the nation's corn crop rated in poor to very poor condition. Additionally, pastures and rangelands continue to diminish with 54 percent of the nation's pasture and rangeland rated in poor to very poor condition. Which according the U.S. Drought Monitor is the all-time high for the 19952012 growing season weekly history. Most areas in Wyoming, Nebraska, and Western South Dakota are reporting 20 to 30 percent decrease in tonnage from normal. Conditions have caused many producers to hang onto current supplies of hay to cover their own needs, which is putting further pressure on an already tight hay supply. Demand moderate and trade activity is slow to moderate. All prices dollars per ton FOB stack in large square bales and rounds, unless otherwise noted. Most horse hay sold in small squares. Prices are from the most recent reported sales.

Hogs

Cattle

Lean hog trade has seen pressure up front with rising grain prices and sow liquidation. The October contract is 150 lower on the week and is just below support levels. Trade should stay very active due to rising feed costs and heat stress. Sow liquidation is increasing and weaned feeder pigs are cheap right now. The deferred months should be well supported. Cash trade has been soft with packers securing needs relatively easily. Weather looks to continue to reduce carcass weights for the near future. The dollar should continue to limit exports in the near term, and ample cold storage will limit the cutout’s ability to run. Hedgers call with questions.

Cattle prices have remained under pressure with the grain markets, heat, and demand all causing bearish issues. The October contract is 120 lower on the week, and the September feeder cattle are 50 higher. Cash trade probably won’t develop until the end of the week. Asking prices are $118, with Packer bids at $113. The weak basis could lead to some deliveries and smaller showlists should give the feeders some leverage. Packer margins are starting to slip. The cutout has been softer this week. Choice is up .75 at 177.69 and select up .80 at 170.83. The choice select spread has been fairly steady. Retail demand is usually soft the second half of

summer, but should pick up on school lunch demand soon. Pasture conditions are declining so far this month, and herd liquation will accelerate. Deferred months should show decent strength with reduced supplies. Expect good chart resistance around $120 on August futures and support at $115. Feeder Cattle have continued to see volatile trade with the fluctuations of the grain market. The November low was just below $140; expect that to remain important chart support. Historically $125 was a good price, just like $99 was a great Live Cattle Price. Hedgers call with questions.
