By Aaron Wade, The Hemingford Ledger ALLIANCE - Just a few miles north of Alliance's Carhenge, sits another roadside oddity. This one is far less noticeable from Hwy. 87, but could have a world-wide impact. Though it is the midst of winter in the Nebraska Panhandle, Russ Finch has created his own 1,360-sq.ft. tropical paradise called "Greenhouse in the Snow." While greenhouses aren't uncommon in the Great Plains, Finch's is one of a kind. Walking through the front door of his home, then through a sunroom, one immediately notices a temperature change. After few more steps leads to a narrow hallway of green vines, plants and trees. Growing from these trees are five types of oranges, three types of lemons, tangerines, limes, grapefruit, dates and any type of citrus fruit that most imagine growing in the Florida sunshine. The greenhouse is the "fruit" of 35 years of labor, trial and error, and blood sweat and tears. With the plants constantly producing fruit, in various stages throughout the year, the harvest is more than one family can eat. So why would one dedicate so much of his time and effort into this venture. For Finch, it was a

challenge - motivating him to prove it could be done. Finch thinks big. He invented the Kidnapper; a product similar to a pickup truck topper, which was installed in the bed of a truck to allow children or pets to ride along before the days of extended cabs. It is this kind of "big" thinking that has helped him to develop a production greenhouse and growing system suited for the high plains and Sandhills area. "There are no production greenhouses on the Great Plains, because the cost is too high to run them for 12-months per year," said Finch. But, by using geothermal heating technology, lowering the ceiling of the greenhouse and strategically placing the plants to get the most harvest out of a small area, Finch has proved that greenhouses which produce commercial crops, can be done in this area. The heating system for this greenhouse is a 3/4 hp blower motor which circulates air through 1,100 ft. of sixinch tube, which is buried eight feet under the earth. "Our entire energy cost is less than $600 per year," said Finch. "That is unheard of, even in other more temperate regions." Finch even heats his home with the system. As for the crops, Finch says the quality is excellent and the

Greenhouse in the Snow resides six-miles north of Alliance, on Hwy 87. The greenhouse is the brainchild of Russ Finch, who after 18 years of trial and error, is producing an abundance of citrus fruit and various crops, year-round. Photo by Aaron Wade/Hemingford Ledger yield is very heavy. Aside from the citrus fruit, Finch is experimenting with grapes, tomatoes, dates and avocados. His setup has gained some attention world-wide. He said he is currently working with Pat and Karen Runkle, who own Lil' Ladybug Greenhouse and Gardens near Hay Springs. Finch said the Runkles are who encouraged him to experiment with tomatoes, to see if it would help in their operation. The design is continuously being tweaked, but so far the tomatoes look promising. Finch has also drawn interest from the Middle East and even Mongolia, regions with extreme climates not conducive with growing many types of fruits and vegetables. Finch thinks the Sandhills create a perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs interested in getting into or expanding their agricultural operations. He said the soil in the Continued on page 12

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Al Dutcher Report December went out like a lamb with average temperature running 10-15 F above normal during the last 8 days of the month. Temperatures during the first 10 days of December averaged 12-16 F below normal before 21 consecutive days of above normal temperatures were Allen Dutcher recorded. Even with such a long string of warmth, it wasn’t until the 23rd before most locations had offset the bitter cold during the first 1/3 of the month. It appears that temperatures for the month of December will average 2-5 F above normal. Little significant moisture was recorded during the past two weeks and the current weather models indicate no significant risk of major snow storm activity during the upcoming two week period. However, they do point to the possibility that the coldest temperatures of the season may arrive as early as mid-month.

Week One Forecast, 1/7 - 1/13:. Weather models are indicating that a couple of cold fronts will sweep southward from Canada during this forecast period and bring an abrupt end to our string of above normal temperature that began in midDecember. The first cold front will sweep through the state on 1/6 with a chance for light snow/rain on 1/7, with the southern half of the state having the best odds for moisture. At this point in time, no accumulations are expected. Benign weather is in store from 1/8 through 1/10. An Arctic air mass is currently forecasted to arrive late on 1/10 with the Panhandle currently targeted to have the best opportunity for accumulating snowfall. Right now, totals of less than 2 inches are possible on 1/11 , but that could change as we get closer to the event. Dry and cold conditions are expected during the 1/12-1/13 period. Projected High Temperatures: 1/7 (mid 30's NE - low 40's W), 1/8 (upper 30's NE - mid 40's SW), 1/9 (mid 40's NE mid 50's W), 1/10 (mid 40's NW - low 50's S), 1/11 (mid 10's NE - low 20's SW), 1/12 (upper 10's NE upper 20's SW), 1/13 (mid 20's NE - upper 30's SW).

Week Two Forecast, 1/14 - 1/20:. Upper air models point to the development of a storm system across the northern Plains during the 1/14-1/15 period. Moisture is currently forecasted for the Dakota’s with Nebraska lying south of the main precipitation field. As this system moves east toward the western Great Lakes region, the coldest air of the season is projected to surge south. The exact placement of this cold air is uncertain this far out from the projected event, so it could easily slide east of our region and greater impact on the central and eastern corn belt region. Another storm is projected to develop across the northern Plains during the 1/18-1/20 period allowing warmer air to invade the southern and central Plains. Models currently keep the moisture north of Nebraska, but any further southward movement of this system would have the potential to bring accumulating snowfall to much of the state. High Temperatures: 1/14 (mid 30's NE - upper 40's SW), 1/15 (mid 30's NW - mid 40's S), 1/16 (low 10's NE - mid 20's SW), 1/17 (upper 10's NE - mid 30's W), 1/18 -1/20 (low 30's NE mid 40's SW).

Nebraska Weather and Crop Report Agricultural Summary: For the month of December 2011, weather conditions were relatively mild and dry compared to the same month last year, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. High temperatures reached the upper 60’s and lows fell to -16 degrees. Snow that had fallen during the month melted with the above normal temperatures allowing cattle producers to make good use of stalks. As a result, feed usage was not heavy and feed supplies were more than adequate with cattle in good condition. The southeast corner of the state received well above normal precipitation while most of the west was well below normal. Field work continued with the warm, dry weather and wheat conditions were well above year ago levels. This release is based on data from FSA county directors, county extension educators, NOAA, and the High Plains Regional Climate Center. County comments and reports can be found at: http://www.nass.usda.gov/Statistics_by_State /Nebraska/Publications/Crop_Progress_&_Con dition/index Weather Summary: The majority of the state saw temperatures average 2 to 6 degrees above normal. During the last week of the month, topsoil temperatures ranged from 30 to 35 degrees and in general got warmer as you moved from west to east. The southeast corner of the state received from 1 to 3 inches of

precipitation, while much of the west and north received a half inch or less. Field Crops Report: Wheat conditions statewide rated 0 percent very poor, 1 poor, 25 fair, 70 good, and 4 excellent, well above last year when 42 percent of the crop rated good or excellent. Hay and forage supplies rated 0 percent very short, 4 short, 94 adequate, and 2 excellent, near a year ago. Livestock, Pasture, and Range Report: Cattle and Calves condition rated 0 percent very poor, 0 poor, 7 fair, 85 good, and 8 excellent, above last year’s 87 percent good or excellent. The following are comments from Nebraska’s FSA County Executive Directors and County Extension Educators: NORTHEAST BOONE: Good weather through the end of the year has been great for livestock. It is dry though and we could use some moisture. DIXON: Mild weather continues to make outside work possible with a lot of fencing and earthwork continuing through December. A great deal of field work being done in preparation for spring planting. KNOX: Cattle have gotten excellent utilization of stalks. Minimal winter feed has been used thus far. Small showers have been welcome. We probably would have 6 inches of snow cover if this would have been received as Continued on page 19

Little Things You Can Do to Increase Your Physical Fitness Kristen Neth, UNL Extension Assistant In order to be physically fit, you do not have to buy a pricey membership to a gym. There are little things you can do throughout the day to increase your physical activity in your home and at the office. USDA’s MyPlate (www.choosemyplate.gov) has some helpful tips to increase a person’s moderate physical activity such as briskly walking during your breaks at work, gardening (such as raking leaves and trimming shrubs), and riding your bike to do an errand down the street instead of driving. All of these are ways to increase your daily physical activity while completing tasks throughout the day. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week along with at least two days of muscle strengthening activities for the whole body. What a person could do is break up the two muscle strengthening days and mix them throughout the week with the 150 minutes of moderate physical activity. Each day you do 30 minutes of moderate physical activity can be broken up into smaller time increments in order to accomplish this workout throughout your work day.

Ten minutes could be completed during a morning break, lunch break, and afternoon break. A person could do jumping jacks or jog during these breaks as well as walking briskly. Different muscle strengthening workouts a person could do at the office include: lunges, wall push-ups, calf raises, chair dips, and chair abdominal exercises. To view how to do all these exercises go to www.youtube.com and type in 15 minute desk workout. Coach Nicole from http://sparkpeople.com does an excellent job of demonstrating how all these muscle strengthening exercises can be completed safely and effectively. Some other helpful hints to use throughout the work day to increase your physical activity would be to: • Swap out your chair for an exercise ball. • Instead of calling or instant messaging colleagues, walk over to their office or cubicle. • Walk to get your mail instead of having it delivered to your desk. • Wear a pedometer to track your steps and try to get 10,000 steps in a day. This roughly equals five miles!

Landscape Plants that Attract Birds Mary Jane Frogge, UNL Extension Associate Interest in songbirds is growing every year. If you would like to attract songbirds to your property, think carefully about the trees, shrubs, and other plants that will make up your landscape. Careful landscape planning and plant selection will help you create an attractive, functional landscape for both people and birds. Many bird species nest or migrate through Nebraska. The migrant birds may stop for a day or two during their migration if they find your property attractive. Do not forget about the birds that stay through winter. They add interest to the winter landscape and are more likely to visit your property if you design and plant the landscape with birds in mind. Bird feeders and bird baths will increase your ability to attract a variety of birds year-round. Landscape plantings can make your property attractive to birds in several ways. Plants provide year-round shelter from predators and harsh weather. Plants provide safe nesting sites and a safe place to rear young. Landscape plants supply food for birds in the form of fruit, seeds, and nectar. Many birds also find landscape plantings a convenient place to hunt for insects. When you select trees, shrubs and vines, consider their landscape value for both you and the birds. Use plants with good summer and fall foliage, attractive flowers, colorful fruit, interesting branching patterns, and attractive bark. You should also consider maintenance. For example, you will want to avoid plants with pest problems that require frequent or regular pesticide sprays to control. With these tips in mind, here are some excellent landscape trees, shrubs, and vines to attract birds in Nebraska: • Evergreen trees are important because they provide year-round cover for birds. Some Landscape Plants that Attract Birdsof the better large evergreen trees are Douglas fir, hemlock, eastern red cedar, and spruce. Small to medium scale evergreen trees include yew, arborvitae, and junipers. • Medium to large deciduous trees known for attracting birds include the alder, service berry,

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • From Leeuary to Pittstober by Lee Pitts

Whenever I get the much-appreciated free calendars at the start of every year there are a few months I’d like to tear out right then and there and be done with them. Sadly, I have to go through the process of living through these much-dreaded months. “January” sounds promising enough but then the month actually begins and many folks start the year with a hangover. If that’s not a sign of what’s to come I don’t know what is! How good can a month be that starts out with a bunch of fu-fu flower parades on TV? I’ve always felt January needs a new name that more accurately reflects it’s personality, something like “Depress-u-ary.” Christmas is over, everyone is grouchy because they’re back at work, and my favorite football teams lose again. Every year I’m convinced that early Alzheimer's has kicked in because I can never remember to write the correct year on my checks. February isn’t much better. I’ve hated it ever since I was a kid because of Rejection Day, otherwise known as Valentine’s Day. I spend the entire month in confusion, not knowing how many days are in the month, or when we celebrate the dead President’s birthdays. I think we should change our calendar and make all months exactly four weeks long, and then create an all new month out of the days left over. This month would be work-free, tax free and free of all stupid holidays like National Sponge Cake Day. We’d call this new month Leeuary,

Pittstober or Pittstember, in honor of its founder. And because there would be no more 29th, 30th of 31st of the month, there’s an added bonus: people born on those days would have no more birthdays! Adding Pittstober to the calendar would be a veritable Fountain of Youth for many. March is one of my favorite months because Spring and daylight savings time start, no estimated taxes are due and March Madness basketball is on TV. Oh, and I almost forgot, (like I usually do) it also marks the anniversary of when I married my wonderful wife. But the good times don’t last because March is followed by April when we are reminded that we’re really just working for the IRS. The only holidays of note are Easter, when we don’t get any presents, and Earth Day, when environmentalists wring their hands, whine, and act holier than thou. After April the rest of the year is filled with months that only get better and better, building towards the crescendo known as December. In May we finally get to start keeping some of the money we make instead of sending it all to the crooks in Washington D.C, the cold weather is finally behind us, the lambs and yearlings are sold, fishing season opens and there are no expensive holidays like Valentines Day, Christmas, wedding anniversary or birthdays that I have to remember. How much better can it get? Plenty, for summer is about to start.

I suppose it’s a carryover from my childhood when school let out for the summer in June, but just the mere mention of the month brings a smile to my face. In July we celebrate the second best holiday by getting to legally light incendiary devices. What more could you ask for in a holiday? And then in August there is our county fair when everyone overindulges in carnival food, over-the-hill country music singers, pig races and PRCA rodeo. September is the month when kids go back to school so we are now safe to walk down the sidewalk without being run over by some juvenile delinquent on a skateboard. Autumn and bull sales begin and the stores decorate for Christmas. Then in October we get to eat bags of chocolate candy that were left over from Halloween. And in November we celebrate our nation’s heritage by pigging out on good food and watching the Dallas Cowboys play. Finally December, my favorite month, rolls around when we celebrate two important birthdays, that of Jesus and followed 24 hours later by my own. Even though I always get combo Christmas/birthday presents you can’t wash the smile off my face all month because people are in a festive mood and the NFR is on television for ten whole days. The only thing that could possibly make December any better is if, instead of being followed by the 31 day depression known as January, it was instead succeeded by Leeuary of Pittstember.

New Trade Partnership Will Benefit Nebraska by Congressman Adrian Smith Grand Island Office 1811 West Second Street, Suite 105 Grand Island, NE68803 Phone: (308) 384-3900 Fax: (308) 384-3902

As we close the book on 2011, there is no question political brinksmanship prevented opportunities for America to move forward. There were, however, consequential, bipartisan accomplishments which will benefit the country. One area where Republicans and Democrats, Congress and the White House were all able to come together was advancing an aggressive trade agenda. As a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, which has jurisdiction over trade policy, I have made opening foreign markets for Nebraska agriculture one of my top legislative priorities. Despite the political realities of trying to legislate during an election year, we can continue to make progress on this key issue in 2012, and do so in a way which is beneficial for farmers and ranchers here in Nebraska and throughout the country. One area of trade policy receiving bipartisan consideration is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. This proposal has been in the negotiating process since 2008 and includes eight countries in addition to the United States – Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

Recently, Japan, Mexico, and Canada have expressed interest in joining these talks. The goal of the negotiations is to achieve an ambitious and comprehensive 21st-century agreement which will help create and retain U.S. jobs. In November, the participating countries released broad outlines of an agreement and are continuing to make progress towards a final deal. This trade proposal will significantly increase the United States’ economic ties with the AsiaPacific region, home to some of the world’s most robust economies representing more than 40 percent of global trade. TPP will allow farmers, ranchers, and other businesses in Nebraska to expand, create jobs, invest in new technology, and grow our economy through trade. In particular, a strong agreement will create significant opportunity to market Nebraska’s agriculture goods while ensuring our farmers and ranchers are not put at a disadvantage by non-tariff and unscientific trade barriers. Over the course of negotiations and hearings regarding TPP, I have appreciated the commitment by trade officials to further opening beef markets as part of this process. Beef trade,

particularly with Japan, has been a longstanding issue for U.S. exporters. TPP may present an opportunity for Japan to remove trade barriers and give Nebraska’s ranchers increased access to a major international market. In an encouraging sign of progress, the Japanese Government recently announced it will reassess its stringent import restrictions on American beef. As a member of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, I will continue to monitor the progress of TPP and ensure trade negotiators are acting in the best interest of Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers. Democrats and Republicans may not agree on everything, but both parties agree we need to create a brighter economic future for the next generation. Increased trade is a sure way to generate much-needed economic growth by creating new markets for U.S. goods and services without raising taxes or further increasing the national debt. As we head into 2012, I am confident this area will continue to be a bipartisan area of cooperation as we work to expand economic opportunity for all Americans.

Nebraska Agriculture: Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’s Opportunities By Governor Dave Heineman Lincoln Office/State Capitol P.O. Box 94848 Lincoln, NE 68509-4848 Phone: 402-471-2244 Fax: 402-471-6031

The 24th Annual Governor’s Ag Conference will be held February 15-16 at the Holiday Inn in Kearney. The theme for this year’s conference is “Nebraska Agriculture: Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’s Opportunities.” This event presents an annual opportunity for agricultural producers and leaders to learn more about their industry, and to come together to help ensure this vital industry remains strong. While these dates are earlier than usual, we listened to the feedback of our conference attendees and worked hard to ensure that our event did not conflict with other large agriculture meetings. This year ’s speakers will include John Doggett who is the Senior Lecturer of International Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainability, and a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin. Mr. Doggett will discuss Nebraska’s agriculture role in the global economy of the future. Bruce Knight, the Principal and Founder of Strategic Conservation Solutions, will provide an update on the federal Farm Bill reauthorization. Mr. Knight is a former USDA Under

Secretary and he will share insight on the farm policy picture and its potential impact on Nebraska. A statistic often heard is to feed an anticipated 9 billion people, farmers will need to double agricultural output by 2050 and perhaps even sooner. We will have two speakers who will address how Nebraska agriculture can respond to this challenge - Dr. Archie Clutter and Mr. Bill Holbrook. Dr. Clutter is with the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska and he will explain how the University is positioning itself to be part of meeting the challenge to provide food to a growing world population. As a leading research institution, we are pleased to have him discuss their progress and ideas for the future. Mr. Holbrook is from The ProExporter Network, an agribusiness economic research and analysis provider, and he’ll discuss opportunities and challenges farmers will face in meeting food production demand. A panel of Nebraskans will join us to discuss their organizations and how they connect

consumers with farmers and ranchers. The panelists include Willow Holoubek from A-FAN, Dawn Caldwell from Common Ground Nebraska, and Pete McClymont with We Support Agriculture. Overall, the farm economy is doing well. Farmers and ranchers generally reinvest profits in their industry in order to improve their production capabilities for the future. They are making needed investments and improvements. They are putting additional conservation practices in place that improve the land and protect the environment. They are putting up new machine shops and bins, and they are paying down debt. When Nebraska agriculture does well, so does main street Nebraska. Registration information is available on the Nebraska Department of Agriculture website at www.agr.ne.gov or by calling 1-800-831-0550. I look forward to seeing Nebraska’s farmers, ranchers and agribusiness leaders at the 2012 Governor’s Ag Conference.

It’s hard to believe 2011 has come to an end and my first term representing you in the U.S. Senate is at its midpoint. We’ve accomplished a lot this year, and I want to thank all of you who took time out of your busy schedules to meet with me. As 2011 draws to a close, I thought it would be appropriate to reflect upon the year. We started right where we left off in 2010— working to repeal the burdensome 1099 mandate tacked onto the health care law. Repeal of 1099 was one of the first pieces of legislation I introduced in the new Congress, and I'm pleased that a bipartisan majority agreed with me. Repeal of this ill-advised mandate was signed into law by the President shortly thereafter, saving more than 40 million small businesses – our nation’s job creators – from a paperwork monsoon. The new Congress also brought about a new committee assignment, and throughout the year I used my position on the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee to push back against EPA’s regulatory overreach. My legisla-

tion to exempt milk spills on dairy farms from being regulated in the same manner as oil spills raised the profile of this ludicrous EPA idea. I was pleased when EPA finally approved the exemption. I also worked hard to fight against the agency’s attempts to regulate farm dust. Facing the potential of an overwhelming bipartisan vote on my legislation, EPA Administrator Jackson announced the agency would back off the rule. I've also been working to ensure those affected by the Missouri River flooding are receiving assistance. I introduced legislation to ensure the flood victims are treated fairly and signed onto a bill that would ensure the Army Corps take the devastating flood of 2011 into consideration when preparing their 2012 plan. I witnessed firsthand extraordinary resolve as I visited affected communities to get a clear understanding of the challenges you face. Our debt and deficit remains a serious challenge in Washington, and I cosponsored a

balanced budget amendment and voted for the only bill brought to the floor that made a serious effort to cut spending. I also spearheaded an effort with Senator Michael Bennet to bring together more than 60 Senators – 32 Republican and 32 Democrat – to urge President Obama to join us in solving our budget woes. We tackled many important issues this year, and I invite you to visit http://www.johanns.senate.gov for a full report. But our work is not done. Next year we must work even harder to rein-in government spending and control our ballooning debt. The federal bureaucracy continues its regulatory march. I will continue my work to stop the overreach and infuse some commonsense into regulations. Whether through email, on the phone, by signing up for my e-Update, or stopping by one of my offices to say hello, your insight is greatly valued and appreciated. After all, you are the reason Stephanie and I are so proud to call Nebraska our home. God bless.

USDA Announces Commodity Credit Corporation Lending Rates for January 2012 WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) today announced interest rates for January 2012. The CCC borrowing rate-based charge for January 2012 is 0.125 percent, unchanged from 0.125 in December 2011. For 1996 and subsequent crop year commodity and marketing assistance loans, the interest rate for loans disbursed during January 2012 is 1.125 percent, unchanged from 1.125 in December 2011. In accordance with the 2008 Farm Bill, interest rates for Farm Storage Facility Loans approved for January 2012 are as follows, 1.375 percent with seven-year loan terms, down from 1.500 in December 2011; 2.000 percent with 10-year loan terms, down from 2.125 in December 2011 and; 2.250 percent with 12-year loan terms, down from

2.375 percent in December 2011. The interest rate for Sugar Storage Facility Loans for January 2012 is 2.375 percent, down from 2.625 in December 2011. The maximum discount rate applicable for January 2012 for the Tobacco Transition Payment Program is 5 percent, unchanged from December 2011. This is based on the 3.250 percent prime rate plus 2 percent, rounded to the nearest whole number. Past monthly releases announcing interest rates charged by CCC on commodity and marketing assistance loans disbursed for that particular month reflect the interest rate the U.S. Treasury charged CCC for that month. This was the interest rate specified by CCC since Jan. 1, 1982, but the process of establishing the interest

rate was changed by a provision of the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 (the Act), enacted on April 4, 1996. Section 163 of the Act requires that monthly interest rates applicable to commodity and marketing assistance loans are to be 100 basis points — or 1 percent — greater than the rate determined under the applicable interest rate formula in effect on Oct. 1, 1995. This formula resulted in a rate equivalent to the amount the U.S. Treasury charged CCC for borrowing, for the month. Further program information is available from USDA Farm Service Agency's (FSA) Financial Management Division at 202-772-6041.

Getting More Bushels for the Buck By Chabella Guzman, The Scottsbluff Star-Herald Ag producers are not the only ones that can be stressed during the growing season. Their crops can also be stressed from wind, hail or dry conditions. "We can take stress management out of crops," said Sam N. Bartee, division agronomist with Helena Chemical Company. "Wind, hail and dry conditions can be managed by the plant with Megafol. The product targets the "stress" for effective lessening of stress in the growing plants. Bartee believes the product Megafol is phenomenal. "With all the products I have worked with over the years, this one is incredible with stress mitigation," he said. Helena Chemical Company designs, researches and offers a supportive role to its customers. Bartee said this was his second year coming to the forum at Panhandle Co-op.

"We offer a supportive role to provide a product that will help producers grow a better crop of corn, sugarbeets and more," he said. He added that modern corn hybrids need additional nitrogen later into the season for proper kernel set and ear fill. "CoRoN is a controlled release nitrogen product," he said. "From the standpoint of corn that is overstressed from hail or dry conditions this can be a recovery process." The nitrogen products can help get corn back on track by clicking on its genes. It can mean a 14bushel increase for corn and an increase of five for soybeans, and real close to that for dry beans. "These are exciting times in agriculture," he said. "We are able to give crops in-season nutrition Tammie Winters, energy coordinator with and stress relief at once with these products."

UNL Extension Offering Education to Private Pesticide Applicators LINCOLN, Neb. — Private pesticide applicators holding licenses expiring in 2012, as well as anyone seeking first-time private applicator certification, should contact their local University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension office for information on pesticide education training sessions that begin in January. Licensed private pesticide applicators can buy and use restricted-use pesticides in their own farming operations after completing this training. There are about 3,500 private applicators statewide eligible for recertification in 2012. Private applicators needing recertification in 2012 should have received a letter notifying them of that fact from the Nebraska Department of Agriculture in mid-December, said UNL pesticide training educator Clyde Ogg. The letter includes a bar code, which eliminates the need to complete the standard NDA application form for those wanting to recertify, he said. Applicators having the bar-coded letter with them at training sessions will not have to fill out the application form. "All who are eligible for recertification will be notified by their local extension office of recertification training sessions in their area," Ogg said.

Training topics include results from the Farm Family Exposure Study, which answers the questions of how much pesticide exposure farmers and their families experience and what practical measures can be taken to lessen pesticide exposure. Extension cropping systems specialist Bob Klein compares effectiveness of drift reduction spray nozzles and gives guidance on conducting high quality pesticide applications. Extension entomologist Bob Wright will give updates on insects affecting soybeans, extension plant pathologist Loren Geisler will have an update on soybean cyst nematode, and Stephen Knezevic, extension integrated weed management specialist will provide information about managing eastern red cedar. Other training topics include soybean aphid identification and management, as well as drift reduction nozzles, equipment calibration, worker protection standard, protective pesticide clothing and equipment, updates on pesticide laws and regulations, safe greenhouse practices, and special emphasis on pesticide health impacts, Ogg said. UNL Extension provides the educational training, while NDA is responsible for

licensing. Cost of NU training is $30 per person. For a list of training sessions, sites and dates, contact your nearest extension office or go online to http://pested.unl.edu/privateschedule where applicators will find pesticide education sites for private applicators listed by county. "After completing private applicator training, certification applications will be sent to NDA, who will then send a bill to the applicator for the $25 state license fee," Ogg said.

Corn trade has continued to push higher this week due to South American weather concerns and chart buying. Heading into Thursday March futures are 14 cents higher on the week; the high printed on Tuesday was $.88 above the low printed in mid-December. Overall volume has picked up a little bit this week, but remains slow. The next big news is the Quarterly Stocks report due out next Thursday along with the final 2011 production estimates. The balance sheets will also be out with these supply side numbers. The bias is toward tighter balance sheets but market bears will question whether or not the rally this past month has priced this in. The weekly sales numbers are delayed until Friday morning due to the holiday week. The bulk of the South American crop is heading into pollination with hot temperatures and moisture levels that have been below to much below normal the past month. There is rain in the forecasts for Argentina and Brazil over the next week with questionable forecasts beyond that. This should produce choppy sideways action in the week ahead along with position squaring ahead of the very important USDA numbers next week. Besides the domestic numbers the trade will watch the latest South American production estimates closely due to the stressful weather there the past month. On the chart the March contract resistance is at $6.62, which is the 100-day moving average; first major support is at $6.27, which is the 50-day, then $6.15, the 20-day. Hedgers call with questions or to discuss your 2012-14 marketing plans.

The wheat trade continued to move higher on spillover support from row crops and short covering on Tuesday, but we are back to mixed on the week heading into Thursday. The funds are still plenty short so there is further room for a rally on short covering, but for now that appears to have ended on Tuesday. The growing world wheat supplies continue to be the bear argument bringing in sellers on rallies. The weather picture and spillover support from the row crops should continue to limit downside. With the uncertainty in South American and the positive chart momentum bigger selling interest may stay away over the next week. I do expect some profit taking by recent longs to give us a few price breaks, but being patient, waiting selling the next rally / move to new highs, seems wise at this juncture. The weekly sales numbers are delayed until Friday. The USDA numbers domestically for wheat are not expected to garner much attention next week. The global carryover trend needs to turn; meaning move lower versus the December report, if there is any real fundamental hope of a continued rally in this market. Otherwise we need weather disruptions to production in 2012 to support a bull market. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade moved sharply higher on Tuesday with a gap opening to the week due to friendly South American weather items, but we have flattening out since early trade on Tuesday. March soybean trade is 23 cents higher on the week; the high on Tuesday was $1.40 above the low printed in early December. South American weather is the biggest news and will remain the biggest news. Although corn was expected to have seen some irreversible damage, the soybean crop was not thought to have seen much permanent losses until this week. This has been behind our strength. The forecasts have improved as of Thursday morning, looking for moisture over the next 5 days, so the market may stay in retreat mode into the weekend. The demand news is not that important this week with the market is waiting for the quarterly, yearly and monthly data next Thursday January 12th. The overall bias for the USDA reports next week is for lower production numbers and tighter carryovers versus the December report, but we need to remember the trend has been growing carryovers the past several reports. So the question will likely be is the report going to be friendly enough to support a bull move. With the key weather period for South America now through March, the weather should tip the scales in regard to our price direction. The outside markets have been supportive, so they will continue to give us some direction as well in the week ahead. On the March chart big resistance is up at the $12.55 100day moving average nearby support is at the psychological $12 level which is also where we find the 10day moving average. Hedgers call with questions.

Farm Food Safety Workshops Offered Across Nebraska David Lott, Horticulture Extension Educator University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, North Platte, Nebraska. Food Safety is becoming increasingly important for all foods producers, including local food producers. In January of 2011, President Barack Obama signed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act into law. This Act features the traceability of fresh produce grown in the United States, as well as greater responsibility for food producers. The bill requires producers to evaluate hazards to their products, create measures to prevent contamination and to develop written food safety plans. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, the University of Nebraska Rural Initiative and the Nebraska Farmers' Market Association in partnership with Old Cheney Road Farmers' Market (OCRFM), are helping producers meet the requirements of the new legislation. The planned workshops will help fresh produce growers or farmer’s market managers complete the Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) training. The workshops will be held in January and February at five locations across the state. At the end of the workshop, participants will understand GAPs and take steps to complete their own farm food safety plans. The topics that will be covered will help producers enhance worker sanitation, harvesting, handling, packaging, storage and transportation standards of fresh produce from

the farm operation to markets, schools, restaurants, and retail stores. By completing a Farm Food Safety Plan, producers can differentiate themselves in the marketplace and appeal to many customers who perceive this training as an added benefit. The one-day training sessions will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All education materials and costs of the workshop are provided by the University of Nebraska GAPs Training Team and through a USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant. Attendance at the workshops is free to everyone. Reservations are required to participate in the training workshops. Please register at: http://go.unl.edu/7ka. For more information please contact the Nebraska Rural Initiative at 402-472-2940 or email gaps@unl.edu . Training dates, locations, and reservation deadlines:

DEVELOPER HOPES GREENHOUSE... Continued from page 1 Sandhills is good for growing crops while the potential customer base is good for growing a business. "People don't realize this, but there are onemillion people between here and Omaha," said Finch. "That is a larger customer base than the city of Omaha itself." He added that another benefit is that you don't need a lot of land to establish a Greenhouse. He said on one acre of land, an operator could place four greenhouses, over twice as long as his own. While this industry is all about the crop, Finch's enterprise has more to do with the structure. He said until this year, he has never sold the fruit he produces, but he likely will with the help of Lil' Ladybug, just because he has so much of it. Greenhouse in the Snow is more directed at manufacturing these ultra-efficient greenhouses. He has utilized other area businesses in the development of his product. About 18 months ago, he was forced to rebuild his original greenhouse. The wood frame was rotting and frost had gotten in, damaging some of his trees. When he rebuilt, he enlisted Antioch Machine Shop of Alliance, which built a steel frame. Finch said the process of building the greenhouse is relatively simple. The frame is designed to slide together like "Tinker Toys." The panels are a light weight Lexan glazing material which is very flexible, yet very durable. Finch said that the product has proved itself through many large hailstorms over the past two years.

TURB

Rus Finch, owner of Greenhouse in the Snow, checks the progress of his lemon tree which is currently producing fruit in the dead of winter. Finch sees his ultra-efficient greenhouses potentially opening a new agricultural market for the Nebraska Sandhills. Photo by Aaron Wade/Hemingford Ledger Greehouse in the Snow fabricates the greenhouses in six-foot sections. To save costs on freight, the company sells the metal frames and the Lexan glazing material. All of the other material needed to build the structure, is available locally. The cost of a 78-ft.-long unit is estimated at less than $18,000. "I think this is a great thing for schools," said Finch. "I was a D student throughout high school, but if they would have offered something like this, that would have kept my interest, I think I would have done better in school."

Finch recently assisted Garden County High School in building a 54-ft.-long greenhouse which will be used by their FFA program. He said this spring, Alliance High School will begin construction of their own Greenhouse in the Snow. After assisting with that project, Finch hopes to develop his company further, by hopefully drawing interest from food banks, nursing homes, community gardens and even prisons. For those wanting to find out more about Greenhouse in the Snow, contact Finch at (308) 762-3042 or by email at greenhouseinthesnow @hotmail.com.

Nebraska Beef Council Board Approves Funds for Foreign Promotions By Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub KEARNEY - The Nebraska Beef Council will work with the U.S. Meat Export Federation this year on special beef promotions in Japan and Central and South America. At the council's board meeting Tuesday in Kearney, $50,000 in beef checkoff funds were approved for the promotions. Executive Director Ann Marie Bosshamer of Amherst told the Hub that the board allocates dollars for foreign marketing in general within the budget, but also earmarked $50,000 for state-specific promotions. In 2011, state-specific funds were used to promote Nebraska beef at a Central and South America showcase in Panama City that featured demonstrations with underused cuts of beef. Bosshamer said the 2012 event, which still must be scheduled, will follow up on those efforts to sell Nebraska beef in emerging Western Hemisphere economies. She told the board Tuesday that USMEF officials may bring a trade team from some of those

countries to the United States ahead of the showcase. The other $25,000 will be used in Japan for a promotion to retailers and food service providers who are rebuilding their businesses after the 2011 earthquake. Bosshamer guessed that an event will be scheduled in late spring or summer. That promotion will follow a 2011 project that focused on earthquake relief. USMEF and its partners - including the Nebraska beef, corn and soybean boards - provided more than 190,000 meals to Japanese people left homeless by the disaster. Also Tuesday, the board heard an overview from Lisa Brass, director of industry relations, on a proposed new schedule for director elections in 2012. The details will be refined by a nominations committee and will be ready for board approval at the March 6 meeting. Brass said the plan is to make a call for candidates March 15 and set a deadline of June 15 to apply by completing petitions. Candidate information meetings in districts with competitive elections will include tips on filling out

forms and an overview of board responsibilities. It's proposed that the actual election would be Nov. 15-30. Also being considered is hiring a third party to oversee most of the process, including confirming that candidates and voters have met qualifications, rather than just counting votes. Expanding those responsibilities will depend on the costs, Brass said, which could vary greatly depending on how many districts have races and how many candidates are involved. Officers elected for 2012 are Chairman Steve Hanson of Elsie; Vice-Chairman Bill Rhea III of Arlington; Treasurer Myron Danner of Burwell; and Secretary Dawn Caldwell of Edgar. The board reviewed the fiscal year 2010-2011 audit report from Kay Stahly, a certified public accountant with Dana F. Cole & Co. in Kearney. A final report will be presented for approval at the March 6 board meeting and then will be forwarded to the national Cattlemen's Beef Board.

5 Area Weekly Weighted Average Direct Slaughter Cattle Week Ending: 1/1/12

Confirmed: 95,059 Week Ago: 95,671

Lean hog trade has been flat to firmer on the week heading into Thursday. We saw a recovery the past few weeks after bottoming out ahead of the Quarterly Hog and Pig report. The report left some negative news out there which will limit upside moving forward. The bull argument needs to see some slower slaughter weeks this month to give us another good selling opportunity. The Quarterly report showed some herd expansion. As a review the overall hog and pig number was 102%, versus 101% expected, heavyweight hogs were at 100% vs. 101%, and lighter weight hogs were at 102% inline with expectations. Farrowings were seen at 100% for the current quarter inline with expectations, 101% for the next quarter also inline with expectations, and 99% for the second quarter of 2012 which is 2% below expectations. Cash bids need to improve as we move into next week to prevent the hog futures from heading back toward our lows. So look for direction there. Hedgers call us to discuss your risk management plan for you hog operation.

Live cattle trade is mixed on the week heading into Thursday; this is a minor victory for market bulls. The downward chart momentum appears to have stopped and with business as usually on a weekly basis back next week most look for a flat to firm Live Cattle market. Feeder cattle have stayed flat to higher, printing new highs this week despite the run up in feed costs. So this may be a good timeframe for cow calf operations to get some hedge protection in place. The cutout at midweek is at $193.86 on choice and select is at 180.14. Some packers are short bought so we look for steady to higher cash trade in the week ahead. Boxed beef stayed well supported in Holiday so far, but packer margins have moved back into the red after a brief stay in the black. So we do need higher cutout trade to support a move back to contract highs for Live Cattle futures. In

the big picture the cow herd is still trending smaller, and another small calf crop will work to support feeders coming forward, but is this priced-in at this juncture? This is a good question and one for the market to ponder as we move into 2012. From a hedging perspective the risk remains high for feedlot operators that do not lock in margins. Cow calf operations have enjoyed the highest prices on record and the futures have big numbers in front of us as well. The rebound in feed prices will add fresh pressure to the feedlots, it is a reminder we need to always focus on margins as well as flat price direction. Export trade is potential set to grow into the New Year as liberalized trade rules should take effect in the second quarter of the New Year. Hedgers call with questions.

Seeking Candidates for Position on the United Soybean Board The Nebraska Soybean Board (NSB) is seeking candidates to fill a United Soybean Board (USB) Member position. If you are an interested soybean farmer, please contact the NSB office. USB is made up of 69 farmer-members who oversee the investments of the soybean checkoff on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers. Checkoff funds are invested in the areas of animal utilization, human utilization, industrial utilization, industry relations, market access and supply. As stipulated in the Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Agricultural Marketing Service has

oversight responsibilities for USB and the soybean checkoff. USB Members receive no compensation but are reimbursed for expenses incurred while carrying out Board business. USB Members serve three-year terms. This position is open to all soybean farmers in Nebraska. NSB will nominate two candidates and the final appointment will be made by the USDA Secretary of Agriculture. The USDA has a policy that membership on USDA boards and committees is open to all individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation and marital or family status.

Anyone interested in applying needs to meet the following criteria: 1. Be involved in a farming operation that raises soybeans. 2. Be a resident of Nebraska. 3. Be at least 21 years of age. For more information, please contact Victor Bohuslavsky at 402-432-5720, before the March 1, 2012 deadline. Interested candidates will need to submit a personal biography before March 1, 2012. This can be mailed to: Nebraska Soybean Board, 3815 Touzalin Ave., Ste. 101, Lincoln, NE 68507.

NEBRASKA WEATHER AND CROP REPORT Continued from page 2 snow instead. Marketing of grain has been the primary activity. MADISON: Very dry conditions. Last significant moisture was 3-5 inches of snow in early December. Entire fall saw very limited moisture, setting up to be a large moisture deficit going into spring. Soil has limited frost. Any liquid moisture would be absorbed. Cattle are making good use of stalks. Large amount of stalks baled up. CENTRAL BUFFALO: Unusually warm weather is allowing producers an opportunity to continue fall field work well beyond normal "shutdown" dates including tillage, soil sampling, fertilizer

application, etc. Livestock producers are getting exceptionally good gains and have been able to continue grazing stalks and winter pastures. For many producers, 2011 has been a favorable year. HOWARD: The unusually warm weather has the livestock in great condition but we definitely need some moisture. EAST CENTRAL DODGE: Cattle continue to graze stalks. Below normal snow and warm weather has helped with not having to feed hay yet. DOUGLAS: Need Rain!!!!!!!!!!! SOUTHWEST CHASE: We are in need of moisture.

KEITH/ARTHUR: Very dry with no snow cover. Moisture is much needed. Temperatures have been above normal in the area. SOUTH CENTRAL HARLAN: Warmer than normal with several 55 degree days - less than 1/2 inch moisture received at lake. WEBSTER: Cattle are moved to the stalk fields and have not needed supplemental feeding so far as winter has been fairly mild.; SOUTHEAST OTOE: Conditions are very dry and mild for this time of year. Producers along the Missouri River are trying to get their cropland cleaned up.

An isolated population of marestail (horseweed) was shown to be resistant to glyphosate. It is now six years later and a new glyphosate resistant weed is emerging in Nebraska. Greenhouse studies conducted by University of Nebraska–Lincoln weed scientists have confirmed glyphosate resistance in multiple giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida) populations.UNL Research on Suspected Population of 2,4-D Resistant Waterhemp In 2009, UNL received a report of a warmseason grass field with a waterhemp population that was no longer being controlled by 2,4-D. Seed from this field was collected in 2009 and 2010 and greenhouse dose response trials were conducted to determine if the population was herbicide resistant, and when compared to a susceptible population, the suspect population was more tolerant to 2,4-D by 10-fold.

The Development of Herbicide Resistance Herbicide resistance usually results from repeated use of the same herbicide. Widespread adoption of glyphosate tolerant crops in the Midwest (primarily corn and soybean), coupled with an over-reliance on glyphosate-based herbicides with no companion tank mixes of products having a different mode of action, has resulted in the evolution of glyphosate resistant weed populations. The number of weed species with reported glyphosate resistant populations has reached almost 20 worldwide, and 12 in the United States, due to repeated glyphosate use over a large land area (more than 300 million acres just in the United States). Weed species with glyphosate resistant populations in the United States include common waterhemp, giant ragweed, common ragweed, kochia, palmer amaranth, marestail (horseweed), hairy fleabane, junglerice, goosegrass, Johnsongrass, Italian ryegrass, and annual bluegrass

(source: International Survey of Herbicide Resistant Weeds). What Can be Done? We need to understand the importance of discontinuing such heavy reliance on one or two herbicide chemistries for weed control as that eventually results in populations of weeds sorted for their tolerance to the herbicides and modes of action that have been used repeatedly in the past.
