Drought Dries Up Hay Production, Boosts Markets Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub KEARNEY, Neb. — Alfalfa growers share a big concern with all Nebraska ag producers, especially those with dryland fields and pastures. "The fate of the 2013 crop is entirely dependent on the weather," said Kearney farmer Tim Kelliher, who has been in the alfalfa business for years. He and other forage producers from around the country are at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds through

this afternoon at the 19th-annual Mid-America Alfalfa Expo & Conference conducted by the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association. Kelliher said in 2002, the driest year during the most recent multiyear drought, he had a dryland alfalfa field. "That didn’t even make a first cutting," he said. "The amount of moisture in the soil now reminds me of 2002." Bruce Treffer, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Educator in Dawson County, said the verdict is still out for 2013, but Nebraska pastures clearly had some damage in 2012. Grass stopped growing well before it went dormant, which means producers may have to wait longer to put cattle into pastures this year and will reduce stocking rates. "Be prepared if the rains don't come," Treffer said. "If it rains, there still probably won’t be the production of past years." Continued on page 12

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Al Dutcher Report

Allen Dutcher

Week One Forecast, 2/9 - 2/15: A powerful upper air low is projected to transit the state during the 2/92/10 time frame and bring significant and welcome moisture. As the system emerges out of the southern Rockies, a surface low will develop and rapidly strengthen over southeastern Colorado and begin to move toward the western Great Lakes region. On 2/9, moisture is expected to develop during the afternoon hours across the western half of the state and spread eastward during the overnight hours. The initial onset of moisture should be in the form of rain, but will quickly transition to snow as the evening progresses. Further east, rain is likely during the overnight hours and should transition to snow during 2/10. A widespread area of 0.50-1.00 inches of moisture is expected, with the heaviest totals currently forecasted for central through northeast Nebraska. Depending on how quickly the rain transitions to snow, totals could easily exceed 6 inches across the eastern Sandhills through the northeastern corner of the state. A slight deviation to the south of the expected storm track would support widespread heavy snowfall for all but southeastern Nebraska. The snow cover should keep temperature below normal for the remainder of the forecast period.

Another system is projected to move just south of the state during the 2/12-2/13 time frame, but a slight northward shift could bring accumulating snowfall into south central and southeast Nebraska. Models indicate that an Alberta Clipper could pass through the state on 2/15 and bring a chance for light snow to eastern Nebraska, along with bitter cold temperatures. High Temperatures: 2/9 (32 NW - 44 SE), 2/10 (26 W - 41 SE), 2/11-2/12 (18 N - 25 SE), 2/13 (25 NE - 35 SW), 2/14 (20 N - 28 S), 2/15 (14 NE - 22 SW). Week Two Forecast, 2/16 - 2/22: If the weather models are correct, most of this forecast period should be dominated by a northwest flow aloft. This means our surface flow will be coming across a deep Canadian snow field and will usher in reinforcing shots of cold air. With this type of upper air flow, timing of individual systems are difficult at best. Currently, models indicate that the first wave will pass through the state on 2/16 and bring a chance for light snow to the western third of the state. Another system is projected to pass through the state on 2/18, with the best chance for light snow falling across northeastern Nebraska. On 2/19 another system is projected to slide through the state by the weather models with the western third of the state having the best chance for light snow accumulations. The final wave of this forecast period is projected to cross the state on 2/21 and the eastern half of the state could see some light snow accumulations. Temperatures are indicated to stay below freezing during the 2/16-2/19 period before moderating to more seasonal temperatures during the 2/20-2/22 period. High Temperatures: 2/16 (10 NE - 20 SW), 2/17 (14 NE - 28 SW), 2/18 (18 NE - 25 SW), 2/19 (8 NE - 22 SW), 2/20 (25 NE - 45 SW), 2/21 (20 NE - 35 W), 2/22 (28 NE - 42 W).

Nebraska Weather and Crops Report Released January 28, 2012 Agricultural Summary: Agricultural Summary: For the month of January 2013, temperatures averaged near normal while precipitation was well below normal across most of the state, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Precipitation was light during January with most areas receiving less than a quarter of an inch of moisture, and at the end of the month, most of the State was free of snow cover. Topsoil moisture supplies were rated as short to very short across most of the State, largely unchanged from last month. Wheat condition continued well below year ago levels with most of the crop rated fair to poor. Cattle are in mostly good condition with the first calves of the season being born. Cattle have made good use of stalks where available. Weather Summary: Below normal precipitation fell during January across most of the state. This resulted in little or no snow cover at the end of January. The greatest amounts of precipitation in the form of rain and snow fell across Northwestern and Southeastern border counties, but accumulations amounted to little more than .50 inch of moisture.

Temperatures averaged 2 to 3 degrees below normal for the western half of the state and up to 3 degrees above for portions of the eastern half. During the last week of the month, soil temperatures ranged from 26 to 33 degrees, below year ago levels. Field Crops Report: Wheat conditions statewide rated 15 percent very poor, 35 poor, 42 fair, 8 good, and 0 excellent, well below last year. Hay and forage supplies rated 23 percent very short, 31 short, 46 adequate and 0 surplus, well below year ago levels. Livestock, Pasture, and Range Report: Cattle and Calves condition rated 0 percent very poor, 2 poor, 23 fair, 68 good, and 7 excellent, below last year. Cows that have calved since January 1, was 5 percent. This release is based on data from FSA county directors, county extension educators, NOAA, and the High Plains Regional Climate Center.

Lincoln Highway Centennial Guide Now Available The Grand Island Independent GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — A guide to the Lincoln Highway (Highway 30) in Nebraska is available from the Grand Island/Hall County Convention and Visitors Bureau in time for the highway's centennial, occurring in 2013. The Lincoln Highway Scenic and Historic Byway Board, of which the Grand Island/Hall County Convention and Visitors Bureau is a member, has published the 64-page travel guide, which covers the state’s longest byway at 450 miles, running from border to border. "The centennial of the Lincoln Highway in 2013 will mean increased tourism from visitors wanting to travel the historic road," said Sarah Focke, president of the byway. "This travel guide will help them visit all of the hidden treasures located along our Nebraska byway." The travel guide provides background and history on the Lincoln Highway, sometimes referred to as the Father Road. It contains information from communities all along the byway, highlighting their attractions and 2013 events. A page is also dedicated to the centennial celebration on June 30 and July 1 in Kearney.

Classic cars will overnight in Grand Island on June 29 for the Lincoln Highway Association’s Official East Coast Tour coming from New York City. The Official West Coast Tour originating in San Francisco will overnight in Lexington before both tours arrive in Kearney for the centennial celebration. The convention and visitors bureau is working with the Lincoln Highway Association to create a memorable experience for the official tour participants while they’re in Grand Island. This experience will include points of interest along the Lincoln Highway such as the Seedling Mile, Kensinger Service and Supply and Shady Bend Italian Restaurant. Other auto tours planning to come through Grand Island during 2013 include the Tin Can Tourists on a vintage RV tour and a Norwegian auto group aiming to take 100 classic cars from coast to coast. The Nebraska Lincoln Highway centennial guide is available at the convention and visitors bureau's Visitor Information Center at 2424 S. Locust St. For more information, visit http://www.VisitGrandIsland.com or call 308382-4400.

Entrepreneur Passing on Tricks of Trade Jean Issler, The Kearney Hub HOLDREGE, Neb. — Teaching young entrepreneurs is Janita Pavelka’s summer passion. Pavelka is an instructor for the Summer Honors Entrepreneur class for high school students. She is also operates the Youth Biz Camp for middle school students. Both programs are offered in Holdrege for area students. Pavelka says she is dedicated to "raising entrepreneurs and life-long learners." She has been teaching entrepreneur workshops since 1996. Her four children, now in middle and high school, have been operating businesses for several years. "It teaches them to take responsibility, to see success or failure. It gives them self confidence," she said of giving entrepreneur skills to kids. It is important, she said, to learn about what sells and what doesn’t, marketing, and customer service. In addition to personal growth in her students, Pavelka sees the health of a rural economy in what she does. "I want the kids to say, 'I can operate a business in my rural community,' so they know they can come back home and make a living," she said. This is important she said, for hometown competitiveness. Exercising creativity is a big part of the process, as shown by the types of businesses students invent. Food is a popular choice, but Pavelka says there have been bath salts, pottery, jewelry and hair barrettes, tutoring, dog walking, organic farm products, portrait photography, and an oil-change business. One of her favorites was archery targets made of recycled phone books. In addition to the two-week course, the young entrepreneurs work several venues to sell their products. The first show is at Holdrege's Swedish Days celebration where middle and high school students work together. From there, the businesses go on to have booths at the farmer’s market in Holdrege, Fourth of July in Alma, and at the county and state fairs. Pavelka said this past year at the state fair was very successful. The booths were located in the 4-H building where they had good

exposure, and some students completely sold out their product. Class sizes are limited and the Summer Honors students must be chosen for the program. Pavelka encourages students to apply now. Educational Service Unit 11 in Holdrege has offered an entrepreneur class for eight years. Each student starts a business and participates in a group-owned social business and a groupowned concessions business. The social entrepreneur business is run to raise funds and/or awareness of a community need. Last year, $126 was donated to a Holdrege charity. The concession stand businesses are open to the Summer Honors students at snack times during the day. Start-up funds are raised by taking $5 investments from students in other classes. Pavelka said last year's bestseller, the Groovy Smoothie, was such a hit that investors got a 100 percent return. "That’s rare in any business," she said. The YMCA of the Prairie, 4-H and the PK Partnership sponsor the middle school summer camp. The Partnership had been trying to start a youth entrepreneurship program for a couple of years. When Pavelka moved to the Holdrege area and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Service developed a 4-H curriculum, the formula was complete. This will be the fourth year for the camp. Pavelka guides the students through the basics of choosing a product or service, production, packaging, and selling. Before going public, they have an expo at the YMCA. Local businesspeople are invited to visit the booths and give suggestions to the students about their products and selling techniques.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • Cowboy’s Revenge (Best Of) by Lee Pitts

Uncle Sam sat fidgeting in the lobby of The Cattleman's Bank. Finally the receptionist announced, "Mr. Loan A. Ranger will see you now." Uncle Sam walked timidly into the mahogany paneled office. With his cowboy boots perched on the desk, the president of the Cattleman's Bank drew on his cigar and motioned for Sam to sit down in a small, stiff backed, uncomfortable chair. "I've come to see you about our operating loan," said U.S. "If I don't get the money I'll have to shut down the government. Frankly I am at the end of my rope. You can't leave us hanging." "How can you be overdrawn again?" asked the cowboy banker in disbelief. “Haven’t I lectured you for hours on end about this in the past?” "Yes sir, you did, but you don't have any idea what I’ve been through." "Oh yes I do. About 17 trillion dollars, that's all," replied The Loan A. Ranger as he reached for the financial statement of Uncle Sam's operation. The accumulated past due notes were as thick as a huge book ,and he turned to Chapter Eleven. "Last year alone I see you went over a trillion dollars in debt," said the banker. “Do you have any concept of how much a trillion dollars is and how many cows that would buy?”

"I had to borrow the money to buy new machinery. They don't give those drones away you know. Besides you told me that it was a good time to expand. You gave me a toaster for every account I opened. Don't you remember? You said I looked good on paper." "Yes, but our depositors want cash. Times are not that great for them either you know?" said the Loan A. Ranger, taking another puff on his cigar. "You shouldn't have expanded like that. And you’ve set no money aside for the future." "But I swear, it wasn’t my fault,” said U.S., squirming uncomfortably in his seat. “We’ve had huge medical bills, we’ve got more kids in college, we’re supporting our old folks, and it’s hard to keep up with the Chinese with them growing like they are." "Yeah, they were in here to see me yesterday. I turned them down too." "But you can't blame the U.S. We just got a little behind." "You call trillions of dollars “a little,” roared the cattleman banker. “Your system of checks and balances looks like too many checks and no balance to me." "But Mr. Banker sir, with all due respect. These have been difficult times for the U.S. operation. I have had to support a larger family. We have more dependents with more people to feed, and the kids needed shoes for school. Please Mr. Loan A.

Ranger," said Uncle Sam as he got down on his knees, "I plead with you. We've been together a long time. Can't you just carry me a little while until times get better?" “Do you have the money to pay your debts or don't you?" roared the cowboy banker. "If you have the money I can loan you some more, but if you are broke I want everything you’ve got. Don’t you remember, this is how it was when the boot was on the other foot?” "I can print more money and pay you the interest," replied Uncle Sam, "but it is the principal I'm having a little trouble with." "Your interests no longer interest me. It’s the principle of the matter I'm talking about," said the bank president over the top of his glasses. "You are just going to have to learn to live within your means. You owe us over a trillion dollars, and we are going to have to sell off some of your assets. I see you have millions of acres on the books. We have no choice but to take your land and your home, although I don't think we'll get much for Washington, D.C. Quite frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself. And quit blubbering and begging like a little baby. It’s unbecoming, and you’ll ruin the silk carpet. Don’t you think it’s about time you grew up and accepted some responsibility?”

Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Government

February 7, 2013

Nearly 1,400 Days and Counting by Senator Deb Fischer Washington D.C. Office 825 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510 Phone: (202) 224-6551 Fax: (202) 228-1325

The last time the Senate passed a budget resolution was on April 29, 2009, or nearly 1,400 days ago. Think about it: the last time the Senate passed a budget, the iPad didn’t even exist. Nebraskans understand that the only way to get our fiscal house in order is to get government spending under control. A budget is essential when you’re running a family or business; it’s even more essential when you’re running the federal government. Since the Senate’s last budget, nearly $6 trillion has been added to the national debt, and we have had four straight years with deficits of $1 trillion or more. The lack of a spending blueprint has enabled more wasteful spending and a massive growth of the federal government. While I am pleased that Congress reached a bipartisan agreement toward passing a budget, I was disappointed that the Senate did not adopt amendments to the “No Budget, No Pay Act” to immediately start reducing our out-of-control government spending. I had initially planned to support the “No Budget, No Pay Act

‘ because I agree with the basic idea that unless members of Congress do their job and pass a budget, we don’t deserve to get paid. Ultimately, though, a number of critical amendments, which I

Lincoln Office 440 North 8th Street, Suite 120 Lincoln, Nebraska 68508 Phone: (402) 441-4600 Fax: (402) 476-8753

supported to immediately rein in spending, failed and the resulting lack of cuts made it difficult for me to support the final measure. Nonetheless, I’m pleased to see that so many of my Democrat colleagues, including the chair of the Senate Budget Committee, Senator Patty Murray (W.A.), and the third ranking Senate Democrat, Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), have publicly indicated a willingness to pass a budget. To that end, I also support an amendment to the Constitution requiring a balanced budget. A balanced budget amendment is the only way Congress and the president will finally set critical national priorities and fund them appropriately. Families across Nebraska have been sitting around their kitchen tables and making hard decisions; it’s time for Washington to do the same. A Balanced Budget Amendment will force the federal government to reduce the deficit, enact responsible spending policies, protect the money of hardworking taxpayers and generate real economic growth. Since the 1930s, balanced budget amendments have been introduced in Congress, and in 1997, the Balanced Budget Amendment failed by just one vote in the United States Senate. It is important to note, however, that Congress cannot amend the Constitution. Congress can only propose an amendment for the states to consider ratifying. According to a CNN poll, three-quarters

Omaha Office 11819 Miracle Hills Drive, Suite 205 Omaha, Nebraska 68154 Phone: (402) 391-3411 Fax: (402) 391-4725

of Americans favor a balanced budget amendment. And as you know, Nebraska and 48 other states are required to balance their spending with their receipts. If the act of balancing budgets can be accomplished by 49 states, surely the federal government can achieve the same sensible accounting practices. And historically, the United States has achieved a balanced budget – as recently as 2001. It can be done, it just requires the political will to set priorities. The idea of a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget is hardly a new concept. Indeed, in 1798, Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter, “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government; I mean an additional article taking from the Federal Government the power of borrowing.” I agree with Jefferson, but our nation’s fiscal crisis demands attention before another 200 years pass, or even another 1,400 days. I pledge to do my part to pass a budget that reins in spending, and I will support efforts that constitutionally require Congress to balance the federal government’s accounting books. Failure to do so will leave a legacy of debt and decline for our children and grandchildren; the American people deserve better.

Good News in Agriculture by Congressman Adrian Smith Scottsbluff Office 416 Valley View Drive, Suite 600 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Phone: (308) 633-6333 Fax: (308) 633-6335

This week, an important agreement was announced which will ease some restrictions on beef imports from the U.S. to Japan, the largest beef market in Asia. Japan will now permit the import of U.S. beef and beef products from cattle less than 30 months of age, an increase from the previous limit of 20 months. This change is expected to result in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional exports of U.S. beef to Japan in the coming years. Although there remains work to be done, this announcement is one of many bright spots in the agriculture economy. Even amidst the worst drought in more than a half-century, Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers are some of the most productive and efficient in the world. The high quality and affordability of American products are what make them sought by consumers across the globe.

Passage of a responsible, long-term farm bill can boost existing efforts by providing a strong safety net for producers and helping to build ties between U.S. exporters and their foreign customers. Agriculture research, for instance, is indispensable to promoting science-based food standards in the international marketplace. When other countries impose biased, unfounded regulations on U.S. agriculture products in the name of “food safety,” research plays a vital role in demonstrating the quality and safety of American food. Though Congress passed an extension of the previous Farm Bill through October of this year, we need a new long-term bill, and the new Congress provides an opportunity to start again. Historically, the Farm Bill has passed out of the House Committee on Agriculture with broad bipartisan support. I served on the Agriculture

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

Committee when the previous Farm Bill was signed into law. At the time, the committee unanimously supported the measure; a characteristic I hope can be achieved this time around. Once a bill is passed by the full House, we can utilize the established process and find common ground in a conference committee with our colleagues in the Senate. To sustain the remarkable success of Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers we need to continue to pursue new trade opportunities and to provide certainty through a farm bill. Agriculture and foreign trade remain bright spots in our troubled national economy, but we must continue to ensure producers have the certainty and opportunity they need to feed the world. .

Japan’s Beefed Up Imports a Welcome Sign for Nebraska Producers by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

Lincoln Office: 294 Federal Building 100 Centennial Mall North Lincoln, NE 68508 Tel: (402) 476-1400 Fax: (402) 476-0605

Last week’s decision by Japan to amend a nineyear restriction on certain beef imports is a promising sign for Nebraska beef producers. Beginning this month, the Japanese will be able to import high quality American beef from animals aged 30 months old or younger. Japan halted its U.S. beef imports in 2003, when a single case of BSE was detected in the United States. In 2005, Japan resumed limited imports, only allowing beef from animals 20 months old or younger. Lifting these restrictions opens opportunities for Japan’s import of more safe, quality U.S. beef, and is a move toward science-based trade standards. I look forward to a day when all animal age limits are lifted from U.S. beef universally, consistent with international standards. Until then, I applaud this step forward. This change could mean millions of dollars in new exports for Nebraska, where every dollar in ag exports generates $1.31 in economic activity. Ag exports totaling more than $5 billion per year translate into $7 billion for the state, and more than 19,000 jobs. The United States boasts some of the world’s highest quality, corn-fed beef. In fact, we make up approximately 18 percent of the value

of the global beef market. Nebraska leads the nation in red meat production and beef processing, so a greater beef market with Japan is especially good news for Nebraska’s economy. But more can and should be done to strengthen our nation’s trade with its global neighbors. Improved trade relations benefit more than just our farmers and ranchers. They offer opportunities for nearly all U.S. producers and manufacturers, as well as industries such as transportation and finance. In 2012, the United States worked to implement trade agreements with Colombia, Korea and Panama. These steps have resulted in new and expanded markets for machinery, irrigation equipment, feed grains and meat exports. Unfortunately, the Administration dragged their feet for years before submitting the three most recent trade agreements to Congress for approval. The delays in action resulted in delays in job creation and lost opportunities for American agriculture. For example, when the Colombia-U.S. agreement was signed, American wheat farmers supplied 70 percent of the Colombian market. Four years later, when the Administration finally

Washington, D.C. Office 404 Russell Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510

sought Congressional approval on the deal, U.S. growers supplied only 45 percent of the Colombian wheat market. U.S. producers are now working to build back the lost market share. Granting the Administration trade promotion authority is critical to the negotiation of new agreements and markets, such as the pending Trans Pacific Partnership. This is something that the Administration has not even bothered to request despite being urged to do so, but I will continue to press for it. Expanding trade is a home run for our economy. The United States has a storied tradition of manufacturing quality goods and producing a safe and abundant food supply. I am confident Nebraska farmers, businesses and workers can compete with anyone in the world if given a level playing field. As we continue working to find solutions to the current fiscal crisis, strengthening and growing our trade relations should be a significant part of the conversation to boost our economy at home. A more open and fair market is in the best interest of our country and our global partners.

Corn trade has slumped due to future demand concerns and a lack of follow-through buying after the move to a new two month high last week. For the week, trade is 14 lower on old crop corn, and 17 lower on new crop. A stronger dollar this week has pressured commodities. March futures on the chart now have support at $7.20, and $7.14, $7.07 with resistance at $7.35. Tight stocks should continue to keep a floor under old crop trade in the near term. South American weather has remained mostly adequate for corn, but there are still some isolated trouble spots that have forecasters backing down crop potential a bit. New crop 2013 corn has broken back to the lower end of the range with some moisture for the Western Corn Belt, and concerns about larger acreage. The weekly export inspections plunged to 5.4 million bushels, once again catching the attention of the market bears. Weekly exports remained low at 168,900 metric tons. Basis has started to firm with the break, and spreads have firmed a bit as well. Ethanol production data bounced back slightly with improved margins sticking around in the near term. Long term US weather remains questionable, but not bullish. Friday’s WASDE report is expected to be mostly unchanged, exports have been slow, but the 950 million bushel number is very small, ethanol cutbacks could be seen, but also some Argentine production reduction.

Wheat

Soybeans

Wheat trade continued to see pressure with demand concerns and rains forecasted for much of the wheat belt, but saw some recovery with Russia giving the nod on a wheat import program. For the week, Chicago trade is 4 lower, KC is 12 lower, and Minneapolis is 7 lower. US wheat remains the cheapest origin in the world, with Australian next cheapest, and European prices highest. Egypt bought a cargo of US wheat, with US offers the only competitive figures. Long term dryness will remain a concern, but some relief should be found over the next few days. On the chart, March Chicago wheat has turned mostly negative with support at $7.50 in the near term, and resistance at $7.70. Japan has been looking at buying more wheat. The Stats Canada report came in lighter on wheat than expected. Export shipments fell to 15 million bushels, wheat exports for the week were softer at 290,800 of old crop, and 10,000 of new. Confirmation of Russian purchases would be seen as friendly, and a closer eye will be watched on the extended forecasts. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has moved higher with good demand and slipping South American weather in the near term. The nearby soybean weekly net change was 13 higher, with meal $9 higher, and bean oil down 44 points. Overall the momentum has shifted to upwards. Nearby March soybean trade now has support at $14.66 and $14.41, with resistance around $14.98, then $15.01. Trade has really struggled in the $14.90 area. Chinese buying has slowed down as they approach the New Year Holiday. The warmer drier trend for Argentina and Southern Brazil has helped to move the market higher, but a wetter forecast is out there for next week. Wetness in Northern Brazil has disrupted early harvest, and early shipments have backed up in the ports at the moment. Export shipments were very strong at 53 million bushels, with fresh sales for the week at 896,200 metric tons of old crop, 771,000 of new crop, 196,300 of soymeal, and 25,500 of soyoil. Chinese crush margins are still good, along with domestic margins. US soybean basis has been sideways but is still pretty elevated. Trade expectations for the WASDE report are for a small reduction in the already tight carryout. Old crop is likely going to stay range bound near term and react to the report, new crop upside should be limited if corn stays on a flat to lower trend like we have seen this week.

NEBRASKA WEATHER AND CROPS REPORT Continued from page 2 NORTHWEST BOX BUTTE: Winter crops across the state continue in a state of stress. Warm temperatures make the wheat and evergreens try to grow. Windy, dirty days are common and there is little if any subsoil moisture to keep plants going. Rain fed moisture is needed to survive and this is less than normal, even for this relatively dry time of year. This is as challenging as it has been in years. All is not lost as snow and rain can still rescue a crop that dies a thousand deaths. DAWES: Very little snow to provide moisture for the spring crops. Warm and dry. SHERIDAN: Still very dry with the last snow gone. Temperatures show a warming trend which could set us up for problems with winter wheat again. Calving will start in earnest in February with producers already feeding hay stocks. NORTHEAST BOONE: Very little moisture and a few days of extreme cold, but mostly warm conditions for the month. DIXON: Early calving just got started. Cowcalf operators are feeding mostly corn stalk and

bean stubble bales along with protein supplement to help keep the feed expenses down. Moisture for spring planting continues to be a major concern. KNOX: Cattle have gotten good use from corn stalks. Mixed rations have been creative as producers look for the least cost. CENTRAL BUFFALO: Most corn stalks have been either put up as stover or are about grazed out. Snow cover has all but melted away. What remains is only in shaded areas or heavily drifted areas. Calving just beginning. EAST CENTRAL DODGE: Winter wheat is holding up even without snow cover. Cattle continue to graze stalks. SOUTHWEST CHASE: We continue to be very short on moisture. Pasture stocking rates for the coming year are going to be cut back drastically. Some by 50% and some are not going to allow any cows in the pasture at all. HAYES/HITCHCOCK: Still very dry. We’ve had a very mild winter so far. Calving should start pretty strong the middle of February.

LINCOLN: Very dry and hay and forages are short. SOUTH CENTRAL FRANKLIN: Cattle are in good condition. Snow has melted. As of this time, adequate feed stuffs. It’s hard to tell anything about the wheat yet. PHELPS: Cows are finding adequate feed in the stalk fields with a little supplement feed. The snow cover is almost gone. Calving has not begun yet in the area. The moisture from the December snow was welcome but it is still very dry. WEBSTER: Snow cover caused extra feeding for cattle as they did not have access to stalks. During January, quite a bit of snow but not much moisture in it. Hay stocks getting short as harvest was short and needs were high before going into winter. SOUTHEAST GAGE: We are short of subsoil moisture. However, we have received normal moisture in Oct, Nov, Dec, and Jan. That isn't a lot, but we are not as dire as some believe.

DROUGHT DRIES UP HAY PRODUCTION, BOOSTS MARKETS Continued from page 1 He said irrigated alfalfa should do OK if 2013 is dry, although the tonnage may be down. The same won’t be true for dryland fields that aren’t subirrigated. "Dryland alfalfa takes a lot of water, a tremendous amount of water," Treffer said. Kelliher has torn out a lot of his alfalfa in the past five years. "Consumption of alfalfa in feedlots in Nebraska has been cut dramatically with the use of distillers grains," the co-product of processing ethanol from corn, he explained. His one remaining alfalfa field in the Platte Valley is subirrigated. He had four cuttings last summer, but production was down 30 percent from a wet 2011. Kelliher added that a regular harvest of 5 tons of hay per acre off dryland grass could be less than 1 ton this year if it doesn't rain. Loomis farmer Martin Freed said he also cut his alfalfa production in recent years, to around 200 acres now, mostly as a lifestyle change. "I like to work a lot less than I used to," he said with a smile. "I'm pursuing other interests." Freed said his 2012 alfalfa produced "some shortage of tonnage, but we had good quality." As forage shortages persist into 2013, he's considering planting more alfalfa under irrigation and maybe some oats in April for haying in June. Freed said that instead of

planting more corn and soybeans, he might then follow with another forage crop such as cane or millet. Freed said he was "all hay" years ago, but switched to corn and soybeans on fields when it was time to retire the existing alfalfa. His family’s land north of Loomis has had irrigation water from Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District since the 1950s. Despite that, even a small, older field of irrigated alfalfa was left unharvested because of drought in 2012. "There wasn’t enough there to cut on the first cutting, so I just left it," Freed said. Most farms had cows and hay years ago, and his custom harvesting business worked in a lot of 20- to 30-acre fields. Today's farms are more specialized and, Freed said, there is an incentive to switch to row crops because corn and soybeans can be insured. "With hay, you're on your own," he said. One of Freed’s longtime customers is an Amish dairy in Pennsylvania. He also sells dairy hay, the highest quality, to farms in Ohio, Wisconsin and Illinois. In 2013, he expects to sell most of his crop to a nearby dairy at Miller. Freed said the connections with buyers in out of state came through the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association (NAMA), which has booths at events such as the Keystone Farm Show in York, Pa. Other

buyers call NAMA Executive Director Barb Kinnan of Cozad for referrals. "Once you’ve dealt with one [buyer] and done well and done what you said you'd do, I've sold to all the neighbors," Freed said. Because shipping costs are the same, outof-state dairy owners want Nebraska's "supreme" alfalfa. Freed said his Pennsylvania customer buys just one load, "so he wants my very best load every year." Kelliher said he sells most of his hay to a Michigan dairy, and some goes to a dairy at Wood River. The problem isn't finding buyers for dairy hay, but for commercial alfalfa. "In a normal year, you need a market for hay that doesn’t meet dairy quality. That market is only good in a drought, and there’s no consistent market for that," Kelliher explained. In 2011, dairy hay reached a high of $200 per ton, he said, mostly because of drought in Texas. Now, it's at $300 per ton. Meanwhile, "beef cow hay" that was barely $150 per ton last year now is closer to $200 to $220 because of supply shortages, Kelliher said. The price was $75 three years ago. "These things go in cycles," he said. "Every day, we’re one more day closer to getting out of drought."

Cowboyed Up HASTINGS, Neb. -- Ridin' and ropin' are part of the curriculum for one J-term class at Hastings College. Cowboy University, taught by biology professor John Kuehn, is the name of the class that helped about 14 students learn all about horses, from their history and uses to their biology and equipment. They also got to apply the lessons to actual animals when the students got on real horses last week. "It teaches the physiology and biomechanics in an applied setting so we give them something to do in terms of riding a horse and observing rodeo," Kuehn said, adding that he hopes the students will get an appreciation for horses. Shelby Sandford, a sophomore from O'Neill, chose the class because "it looked like it would be ridiculously fun and so far it's proven to be true." Although she and others in the class said it has been a lot of fun, they have learned a lot as well, even those who have been riding since they were toddlers. Kuehn, who grew up riding his family's horses, said he felt most people who grow up in Nebraska, whether they come from a farming

and ranching background or not, have a fascination with horses and that led many of his students to the class. "The [riding] was definitely part of the draw," he said. "If I were to just say we were going to have an anatomy or biology course, I doubt as many would have been interested." The class started Jan. 3 with the other J-term classes, the classes at Hastings College between first and second semester. In the first few weeks of class, students watched a documentary on Mongolian horse racing, learned about the different breeds of horses, studied the biology names for the parts of a horse as well as the proper names for parts of the saddle. "The first couple days of class we went over basic horsemanship," Sandford said. "We looked at some different areas of horses, different ways people train in different countries and the different ways they use horses." Holly Bishop, a senior from Beatrice, said learning that first helped the class understand horses better before climbing on the back of one.

"It helps you learn the fundamentals better behind everything so you can get a solid foundation," Bishop said, adding that the students appreciated it even though it wasn't as exciting as watching a rodeo or riding a horse. "It's import to realize that it's a class, too," said Cody Guggenmos, a senior from Brewster. "We're all here to learn about horses, too, not just have fun." Kuehn said his goal was to let the students learn while having fun. "I sneak in some learning between the fun," he said with a laugh. The highlight of the class came early last week when the class took a field trip to Denver, Colo., for the National Western Stock Show, where they attended a Mexican rodeo and an invitation-only rodeo. Several of the students mentioned the trip when asked about the most fun part of the class. Bishop said the trip to Denver was a bit of a bonding experience for the class members before the actual riding instruction started. Continued on page 16

HEARTLAND CATTLEMAN Dedicated to the Livestock Industry

Cattle Nutrition Requirements During Cold Weather Noel Mues, Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Furnas County

Q

How do cattle nutrition requirements change during extended periods of cold weather? What things can be done to help reduce stress to cattle when conditions are bitter cold or stormy? Cattle typically have a lower temperature comfort level at around 20° to 30° Fahrenheit under dry, still conditions. When air temperature or wind chill drops below this threshold then cattle begin to need more energy from feed or use their own fat reserves in order to maintain body temperature. Beef cattle in a Body Condition Score of 5 or higher will be able to handle cold stress better than thin cows as they have fat reserves to help insulate them from the cold and can also use that fat as an energy source. A rule of thumb is that for every 1 degree Fahrenheit the average daily temperature is below 30 degrees a cow with a dry hair coat in a moderate body condition will have their average energy requirements go up 1 percent. Wind chill and wet conditions can drastically increase these requirements. Cattle with wet hair coats under windy conditions may not be able to produce enough body heat to stay warm. Windbreaks can significantly help to reduce weather stress. Also, having a dry place for

A

cattle to lie down can help ease stress caused by cold weather. For cattle in a dry lot or feedlot environment under extreme cold conditions for an extended time, bedding such as cornstalks or wheat straw can aid to reduce the stress of having cattle lay on frozen ground. If additional supplemental feeds are needed to help meet nutrient requirements for beef cows on roughage diets in cold weather, consider using feedstuffs which are high in digestible fiber and energy.

Hogs

Cattle

Lean hog futures have broke lower with spillover pressure from the cattle pit and declining carcass values. Many traders have been surprised by the meat weakness this week because of the stock market strength. For the week, front months were 265 lower. April futures have resistance at $8820, and support now at $8600, with trade falling below the major moving averages. Cash prices have held up on slow movement to start the week, and the carcass has been weaker. Packer margins could use a boost. The dollar has been stronger, and the racopatime disputes have continued to weigh on the market. Pork is still competitively priced. Hedgers call with questions, and focus on margins looking forward with the hog charts turning down and corn slipping this week.

Cattle trade has struggled with sliding cutout values and demand concerns. For the week, nearby Live Cattle are 90 lower, and feeder cattle are 180 lower. Chart support is around 13050 on the April contract, and resistance at 13200. Cash trade last week was $2 to $3 higher in light trade around $125 cash and $197 dressed, most expect flat to lower trade to develop near term. Cutout trade has flat with choice at $183.94 on Wednesday and select at $180.65. This is limiting upside in the feeders and cash trade. February futures are pricing-in our current market. Feeder cattle have struggled even with the break in corn, and mar-

gins remain very poor for the back end of the cattle chain. Showlists have stayed roughly the same size, but fresh interest has been limited so far. Asking prices are around $127-28, and if realized would support the market in the near term. Rains in the next few days across the Southern Plains could give grazing a boost. The Cattle Inventory report had numbers down as expected so we saw no real reaction. The weakness this week has filled the upside gap left on the futures charts following the bullish USDA January Cattle on Feed report. Hedgers call with questions.

Japan Loosens Restrictions on Imports of U.S. Beef Emily Nohr, The Omaha World-Herald Nebraska's beef industry expects a major boost felt around the state as a result of Japan's announcement that it is loosening 10-year-old restrictions on U.S. beef imports. Effective Feb. 1, Japan will import U.S. beef from cattle up to 30 months old, up from the current 20-month-old limit. Allowing exports of beef from older cows means that more beef will be eligible to export and producers and processors no longer must make special provisions for a restriction that strayed from the international standard of 30 months old. Gone will be scheduling and organizing issues to ensure younger cattle aren't getting mixed with older ones. A Japanese government council that oversees food and drug safety approved the measure, which also applies to beef imported from Canada, France and the Netherlands. The beef industry has a $12.1 billion impact on Nebraska's economy and, in 2003 before the ban, Nebraska exported $167.9 million worth of fresh and frozen beef to Japan, according to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. All Nebraska meat exports totaled $1.4 billion in 2011, with beef accounting for $811.5 million of that. "Nebraska is a very big beef state, so exports are very important to us. This truly opens a lot of opportunity for us to offer high-quality, corn-fed beef to Japan," said Ann Marie Bosshamer, executive director of the Nebraska Beef Council. In 2003, Japan and other countries banned U.S. beef imports because of safety concerns raised after finding one case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease, in Washington involving a Canadian-born cow. Japan later lifted the ban and started to allow U.S. beef imports 20 months or younger.

U.S. Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack traveled to Tokyo in 2010 to press the government to lift remaining restrictions. Discussion of easing the age limit started in late 2011 and cleared its final hurdle Monday with a conclusion by a panel of experts appointed by the Japanese government that the eased age measure posed "little or no risk" to public health. U.S. beef has been declared trade-safe under international scientific guidelines, and most countries accept U.S. beef now. In 2007, the first full year after the 20-month rule was enacted, Nebraska exported $31 million worth of fresh and frozen beef to Japan. That number has been on the rise since, reaching $133.3 million in 2011. Nebraska Agriculture Director Greg Ibach said Nebraska beef processors have done a good job adapting to the 20-month rule. "The Department will work in conjunction with agriculture industry partners to take advantage of the new opportunities that this announcement provides," he said. "We will show Nebraska's ongoing commitment to providing Japan with safe, wholesome beef." Industry leaders will likely take at least a few months to ramp back up their exports to Japan. Producers wanting to export to Japan have been required to show documentation that verified an eligible birth range, and processors and packers were required to keep a strict schedule to ensure the cattle weren't older than 20 months, said Dennis Burson, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln meat extension specialist. Because the Japanese standard was different from other importers, documenting and proving the identity of cattle throughout the system required extra time and effort along each step through the production chain. "That tells you how important the Japanese market is to U.S. trade," he said.

COWBOYED UP Continued from page 13 "We really got to know each other," she said. The horsemanship of the class ranges from "never ridden a horse" to "a member of the rodeo team" and everywhere in between. "[Three in the class] were really the only ones who had a lot of horse experience," said Sandford, who is on the rodeo team and teaches riding lessons. "The rest of the class was pretty, pretty green." Bishop, who also is on the Hastings College rodeo team, said the first day with the horses was spent teaching class members how to handle a horse from the ground, how to saddle a horse and then walking and trotting. "We got to lope a little [the second day]," she said. Those who have more experience have been helping those who are new to horses. "It has been fun to watch them come along the last couple days," Sandford said. "It's been fun to see the different people on the horses and see how they handle them and how they progress. "Even from yesterday I've seen a big difference in confidence levels," she said, adding that she just reminds them of the fundamentals of riding. Guggenmos said although he was familiar with horses, he didn't have as much experience with them as those on the rodeo team. "I'm not very familiar with horses," he said, although he has ridden horses before, including on Kuehn's place. "I'm a farm kid that actually knows nothing about horses, so I just really wanted the experience. I'm really comfortable around horses. I just wanted to learn more about them." Those who have ridden before said the class is still full of good reminders. "There always are things you can learn no matter how long you've been riding," said Logan Epp, a senior from Brewster who said he was on a rodeo team before transferring to Hastings.

CNPPID Board Approves Temporary Water Transfers During 2013 Allocation Year The Kearney Hub HOLDREGE, Neb. — Temporary transfers of water delivery service to 22,595 acres for the 2013 irrigation season were approved by the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (CNPPID) Board of Directors Monday in Holdrege. The one-year transfer of service to and from irrigated tracts provides additional flexibility for customers to meet their crops' irrigation needs under allocations resulting from water supply limitations. In October, the board set 2013 allocations at 10 inches of water per acre in a 12-week irrigation season. Normally, Central irrigation customers would receive up to 18 inches in 12 weeks. The delivery location transfer policy was enacted during the 2005-2009 irrigation seasons, when drought-related allocations were 6.7 or 8.4 inches per acre. "The transfer policy helped Central's customers cope with the last drought, and we're confident that it's an effective tool to help us deal with the current conditions," said CNPPID Irrigation Division Manager Dave Ford. In his Platte Basin water supply report Monday, Civil Engineer Cory Steinke said the snowpack in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and Wyoming continues to lag normal.In the upper North Platte River Basin, from which about 70 percent of the total runoff into the North Platte River originates, snowpack was at 76 percent of normal. In the lower basin, less than 2 inches of snow-water equivalent has accumulated, or 29 percent. Snowpack in the South Platte River Basin in Colorado currently is at 61 percent of normal. North Platte Basin reservoirs operated by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in Wyoming started the storage season last fall with average volumes of water. Steinke said that if snowpack conditions don't improve, the reservoirs are likely to end the 2013 irrigation season at below-normal levels. Central monitors the Wyoming reservoirs because they provide water to irrigation projects in eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska from which return flows provide the majority of inflows to Lake McConaughy.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Native American protesters concerned about pollution of ancestral lands by the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline rallied Monday outside the Nebraska State Capitol. Members of the Indigenous Council of Nebraska, the Lincoln Indian Center and a grass-roots movement from Canada called Idle No More called on President Barack Obama to resist growing political pressure and reject the pipeline. They said the project represents a threat to soil, water and the atmosphere by unleashing more greenhouse gases that many scientists have linked to global warming. "This is more than just a native issue. It's more than just an indigenous issue, it's an issue for everybody," said Jessica James of Lincoln, a member of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes. A native drum group played and sang traditional songs as smoke from burning sage mingled with the late afternoon fog. Many in the crowd, which organizers estimated at 200 people, carried signs urging the president to reject the pipeline. The $7 billion Keystone XL would carry crude oil, steamed out of tar-sand deposits in Canada, approximately 1,700 miles to refineries on the Gulf Coast. The pipeline requires approval by the Obama administration because it crosses an international border. Last week, Gov. Dave Heineman approved a new, 195-mile route for the pipeline through Nebraska. The Native American protesters were joined by members of Bold Nebraska, an environmental group that has long opposed the project. A Bold Nebraska organizer said the group canceled a planned vigil outside the governor's mansion.

STOP FUEL GELLING The Universal Filter Preheater Fits Diesel and BioDiesel Fuel Filter Housing (8” to 12” circumference, 2.5” to 4” diameter) for lube oil and hydraulic filters too. It wraps around the filter housing and reduces or eliminates the possibility of cold weather fuel gelling stopping the engine. It is easily removable and transferable and is wired for your choice of: direct current or alternating current or a convertible model combining dc and ac. A standard 12v Universal Filter Preheater sells for $138. NEW — Now Available For Bulk Fuel Storage Tanks and Dispensing Pump Fuel Filters!

“Peel & Stick” Engine Preheater The ‘peel & stick’ Universal Preheater attaches to the bottom or the side of the oil pan and converts the housing into a heat transfer element. It warms the oil without burning it making cold starts easy. It can be used on gearboxes, transmissions, transfer cases, water tanks and even bulk oil tanks. The Preheater plugs into any 120 or 240 volt outlet and consists of a thin silicone fiberglass pad containing a metal grid. To install it, you clean an area on the bottom or side of the oil pan and press the pad onto it, then use silicone to seal the edges of the pad and place a flexible ceramic insulation pad over it. It is available in several models depending on the lube capacity. A 50 watt unit sells for $42 and a 350 watt unit sells for $133.

February 7, 2013 For 41 years, FRE-FLO™ technology has been providing benefits for turf by opening up and unclogging soil pores, allowing more optimal drainage of high salinity soil. FRE-FLO™ substantially reduces soil salinity by leaching salts without using additional water. Soil permeability and tilth are improved. Through its leaching functions, FREFLO™ is able to reduce the Electro Conductivity (EC). and Sodium (Na) in the soil.

Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Cattlemen’s Classic

Page 15

Ò FRE-FLO™ CATALYTIC WATER CONDITIONING is a non-chemical soil amendment technology that cleans up Calcium Carbonate build-up in soils. Soil crusting is eliminated, permitting improved water penetration into the soil and plant root systems. Excessive salts are leached away from the root zone.

Due to improved quality soil with better nutrient uptake, healthier, stronger plants, trees and turf are achieved. FRE-FLO™ Increases Profits By Conservation Of Water And Energy. A FRE-FLO™ CATALYTIC WATER CONDITIONER uses much less irrigation water. Research documents that 16% to 29% less water

How it works

AND less pumping energy are needed in irrigation applications where high levels of hard Calcium Carbonate water and poor soil exist.

FRE-FLO™ Is A Proven Technology That Has Not Been Successfully Duplicated

Benefits of FRE-FLO™ • Faster root establishment • Increased brix and calcium • Increases water penetration

Entering a FRE-FLO™, water experiences a pressure drop and turbulent flow, causing dissolved carbon dioxide (C02) to become a gas (much like bubbles in carbonated water). The pressure drop changes the characteristics of the water, producing a “saturated” condition with respect to hard Calcium Carbonate (commonly called “scale”). This saturated condition means the water in the FRE-FLO™ is ready to precipitate or grow crystals of Calcium Carbonate. Normally, the crystals that are formed in such a saturated condition would be either Calcite or Aragonite, which are both forms of Calcium Carbonate scale. Due to the proprietary nature of the FRE-FLO™ core technology, the crystal form that actually “grows” within the core is a third form of Calcium Carbonate called “Vaterite”. Vaterite is spherical in form and does NOT form scale.

• Reduces water pooling • Stops hard calcium carbonate layers from forming • Gradually eliminates existing hard pan • Improves soil drainage • Reduces impact of high salt content water • Improved percolation • Up to 29% less water needed • Up to 29% less power for pumping • Longer, fewer irrigation sets required • Functions as a water conservation tool
