Crops Still Rated in Good Shape By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent After a relatively dry spell at the end of June, heavy rains again soaked much of Central Nebraska and south central Nebraska over the Fourth of July weekend. Despite the heavy rains, crop conditions throughout Nebraska were rated in mostly good and excellent conditions, according to the weekly Nebraska Weather and Crop report from the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service.
Over the holiday weekend Grand Island received 1.18 inches of rain following about 10 days of a dry spell after heavy June rains that produced nearly 9 inches of rain. Other area rainfall amounts over the Fourth of July weekend were: Aurora, 1.86 inches; Wood River, 1.67 inches; Kearney, 1.56 inches; Ord, 1.37 inches; Loup City, 1.18 inches; Hastings, 0.94 of an inch; Osceola, 0.67 of an inch; and Fullerton, 0.60 of an inch. And rain will continue through the week, according to the National
Weather Service in Hastings. For Grand Island, there's a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms today with a 30 percent chance for tonight. For Thursday through Saturday, there's no rain in the forecast. On Sunday, there's a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. While much of Nebraska received what seemed like an endless stream of storms in June, more rain is needed in July. Continued on page 25

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist
Al Dutcher Report Several precipitation events moved across the state during the last two weeks, but didn’t result in significant flooding that was almost a daily problem during the first three weeks of June. Corn is rapidly approaching pollination and weather models have been conAllen Dutcher sistently pointing to a drier and warmer pattern developing by mid month. Irrigators should pay special attention to crops for shallow root syndrome as the abundance of moisture may have resulted in a high percentage of root mass confined to upper 3 feet of the soil profile. Rapid water depletion in this zone could occur if warmer and drier conditions do materialize as projected by the weather models even though soil

profiles down to 6 feet are near field capacity. If shallow roots have developed, little moisture extraction would be expected from corn roots below three feet for the remainder of the growing season. Week One Forecast: 7/10-7/16: A trough moving into the Pacific Northwest will bring increasing chances for precipitation during the first half of the forecast period. Mostly dry conditions are expected on 7/10, with highs in the upper 80's southwest to mid 80's northeast. On 7/11, thunderstorms are projected to develop during the afternoon and evening hours across western Nebraska and expand eastward during the overnight hour. Highs are forecasted to range from the low to mid 80's west to upper 80's to low 90's southeast. Rain and thunderstorms are likely across the eastern 2/3 of the state on 7/12 with highs statewide ranging from the low 80's west to upper 80's east. Lingering precipitation during the morning hours is likely across southeastern Nebraska on 7/13, with highs statewide primarily in the 80's. Dry conditions are expect-

ed for the remainder of the period as high pressure builds into the central Plains region. Highs will range from the mid to upper 80's on 7/14, warming into the low 90's east to upper 90's west by 7/16 Week Two Forecast: 7/17-7/23: Current weather models indicate that no organized precipitation is projected for the entire period across the state. An isolated thunderstorm could pop up over the western half of the state during the late afternoon and evening hours of 7/21 and 7/23 as crop evaporation increases moisture in the lower layers of the atmosphere. High Temperatures are projected to range from the upper 80's northeast to mid 90's southwest on 7/17 and 7/18. The upper level high pressure system is projected to center itself over the central U.S. by 7/19, bringing widespread 90 F to 95 F readings across the entire state for the remainder of the forecast period. An isolated 100 F would not be unexpected, especially across southwestern Nebraska.
Nebraska Weather and Crop Report Agricultural Summary: For the week ending July 4, 2010, a mostly dry week with sunshine allowed producers back into fields to spray herbicides and harvest hay, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. However, statewide rainfall on Sunday again shut down field activities. Wheat harvest was mostly complete in the Southeast and progressing westward. Rainfall has allowed some producers to turn off irrigation wells. Wind and hail this week again caused damage to scattered fields. Previously flooded fields were assessed to see if replanting is necessary. High numbers of grasshoppers were present in some Panhandle counties. Feedlot conditions have improved. Weather Summary: Temperatures for the week averaged 1 degree below normal with highs in the mid 90’s and lows in the mid 50’s. The week was predominately dry until the weekend which saw precipitation across much of the state. Field Crops Report: Corn condition rated 2 percent very poor, 4 poor, 11 fair, 64 good, and 19 excellent. Irrigated fields were 83 percent good or excellent and dryland fields rated 84, both near year ago levels. Corn silked was 7 percent, ahead of last Continued on page 15

The Farm Is Not A Giant Playground Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, Colfax County The wide open spaces often tempt children to use the farm as a giant playground. However, many potential dangers exist on the farm. Ponds are inviting on a hot summer day. With proper supervision, a pond can provide a fun atmosphere. A child on his own near a pond can mean potential danger. Fencing the pond may help but children usually find a way to get through the fence. Explaining the potential dangers to a child may help in reducing the risk of a tragedy. Bins and silos should be locked or barricaded to avoid the possibility of a child venturing in the structure and becoming trapped. Abandoned buildings arouse the curiosity. Weak floors and unstable support systems may cause a fun game of hide and seek to become a disaster. Broken windows and hidden objects can cause cuts and bruises.
Children also like to investigate the junk pile. What is in your junk pile? Items with sharp edges or wooden boards with splinters and nails are often found. Animals and insects such as wasps, snakes, and rates often infest junk piles. Danger also exists on the rural roads. Walking or riding a bike on such a road should be done with caution. Be aware of the possibility of traffic. When crossing the road to get the mail or shut a gate, be sure to look both ways before crossing. If the dog follows, make sure to keep it off the road as much as possible. Teach your children about the potential dangers that exist around the farm. As a family, take a tour of the farm. Make a list of the places to avoid or use caution when near. The farm is a great place to grow up. Make sure that the children have that chance by making the farm a safer place to live.
Home Vulnerability to Termites Sheryl Fellers, Dawson County Extension Service Termites in Nebraska live in the soil in a colony with hundreds or thousands of individuals. Termites are important decomposers – they recycle dead plant materials and return nutrients to the soil. Termites are rarely seen and are a problem only when they feed on our structures. In Nebraska, termites are not very active during the winter when the soil is cold or frozen. But, when temperatures warm in the springtime, hungry termites aggressively begin searching for food: wood, cardboard, paper or other types of cellulose. Termites have microbes in their gut which helps them turn cellulose into simple sugars, which they can digest. Termite researchers used to think termites wandered randomly through the soil. We know now this isn't really true. Instead, termites move in predictable ways to methodically divide and subdivide the soil to make sure they search every square inch of soil. If there's a colony in your yard, termites eventually will bump into your house. To keep from becoming dehydrated, termite workers travel through the soil in mud tubes which they make with mud, saliva and feces. They keep the humidity in these mud tubes moist. In a perfect termite world, these soft-bodied workers would always stay in the soil, feeding on
dead trees that have fallen to the ground. But, in urban areas, we clean up our landscapes so there are no dead trees lying around for them to eat. So, being the survivors they are, they search above the ground for wood. Any untreated wood that touches the soil is a potential termite conduit into the house. To get into a structure, termites must build a mud tube over the foundation or they must have a crack in the foundation or floor. Termites can squeeze through a 1/64-inch crack. Some foundations are better at resisting termites than others. How vulnerable is your house? -- What type of foundation do you have? -- Do you have an inaccessible crawlspace? -- Do you have wood touching the soil near the house? Researchers say 90% of termite infestations can be traced back to wood in the soil. -- Do you have moisture problems near the house that may draw termites? -- How old is your house? The older the house, the more likely it is to have foundation problems. However, we also see termites in newer homes. If your house is vulnerable to termites, you may be able to prevent termites yourself by eliminating wood-soil contact or moisture problems. But, it is important to be vigilant and watch for signs of termites during the warmer months. For more information on termites and their control, visit http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/termite.shtml.

Fun to Play, Ready to Learn Andrea Nisley, Extension Educator University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension Building Nebraska Families Program New research on brain development has demonstrated how important family involvement and positive learning experiences in the home and day care are for infants, toddlers and preschool children. Learning starts immediately. A family is a child’s first teacher and a child’s home is his/her first classroom. Children learn by exploring, questioning, touching, moving and discussing. Children also learn by watching and listening. Studies show that negative or stressful experiences may hinder a child’s learning. The five senses are the gateways to learning so it is important to do activities that promote learning through the senses. Tasting is one of the ways babies find out about things. We all know…everything they pick up goes into their mouth. That means adults need to watch out for poisonous plants, small objects on the floor, etc. When your baby is old enough to eat solid foods you can do simple taste tests with banana slices, crackers, cereal and soft cheese. Introduce foods one at a time to watch for food allergies. A newborns sense of smell is already fully developed, so introduce your newborn to a variety of smells. As your baby grows take walks and
stop, smell and touch things you see along the way. Of the five senses, touch is the basis of emotional and social development. Don’t be afraid to touch newborns. Babies like to be held, snuggled and stroked. Hugging, holding hands, waving goodbye, making friends, sharing – are all part of being social. A baby’s hearing is almost fully developed at birth so talk, sing and read to them. Carry on a conversation with your baby as your go about daily tasks and continue to do so as they grow. Sing simple songs to them and teach nursery rhymes and songs with actions such as “Pat-aCake”, and “Itsy, Bitsy Spider”. Songs with actions also help develop motor skills. A baby’s sight is not as developed as some of their other senses. Talk to a baby while changing their diaper, bathing, feeding them and they will look at you. Newborns see only black and white so create a gallery of black and white pictures by the crib for them to focus on. Toddlers and preschoolers should be given the opportunity to color, paint, play with clay, and be creative. To learn more about parenting young children and child development, ask about the book “Ready to Learn, Fun to Play” EB2 at your local University of Nebraska Extension Office or purchase it from the extension.unl.edu/publications website.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts •
Te r m s o f E n d e a r m e n t
by Lee Pitts
I hate it when people I don’t even know call me terms of endearment such as honey, darling, pet, precious, sugar or angel. The other day at the Dollar Store the clerk referred to me as “love” right in front of my wife. Believe me, that took some explaining! The only time I’ve ever used such terms is when I couldn’t recall a person’s name that I really should have known, and I’m proud to say that in 36 years of marriage I think I’ve only used such words twice in referring to my wife. Having said that, these terms of endearment can serve an important role. Based on years of experience and eavesdropping I’ve found that you can tell just how mad your wife is based on the terms of endearment she uses. And, let’s face it guys, married men spend, on average, at least half of their waking hours being in trouble with their wives. But there are several levels of being in trouble, from the withholding of nourishment and personal favors, to the throw your clothes out the front door and slash your truck’s tires, kind of trouble. So my dears, here are a few hints on how to discern what level of trouble you’re in based on what your wife calls you. For example, let’s say you are eating at a fancy restaurant, where they have tablecloths and more than one fork per place setting, and your wife whispers to you, “Sweetie, it’s not polite to tuck your napkin into the top of your t-shirt, and you have a big dollop of thousand island dressing on
your chin.” When you are referred to as sweetie, sweetie pie, sweetums, or any variation of the word sweet, it’s almost like you are in no trouble at all. It’s almost a compliment. If your wife says to you, “Honey, I know that you are busy this time of year with the upcoming football season and all the nice beer drinking weather we’ve been having, but my parents are coming over for dinner and I’d appreciate it if you’d remove that oily carburetor you’ve been rebuilding from the dining room table. And would it hurt you, Hon, to take a shower and put on a clean sweatshirt?” Be warned Honeybunches, you now have officially moved up a notch in the degree of trouble you’re in. I’d move all automotive maintenance projects to the bedroom if I were you. The war is escalating if your wife says, “Babe, you’re either going to have to buy me a new refrigerator/freezer or remove the fish bait, beer, livestock vaccine, and colostrum from the dinky frig we have now.” The use of the words babe, babycakes, or the dreaded baby doll, are a warning that you are in some serious hot water. My advice? I hear they’re having a great sale down at Sears on extra-large side-by-sides. I don’t know how, or why, wives started using forms of the word pumpkin in referring to us. Frankly, I just don’t see the resemblance. But listen up if your wife says, “Pumpkin cakes, if you throw your oily rags with degreaser, paint thinner or
cow manure on them in the washer with my frilly underwear one more time I swear I’ll shoot you.” My dearest darling dudes, unless you want to see your wife only on visitation day at the state penitentiary I’d start using paper towels exclusively. As much as I detest being called “babe” or “darling,” I hate being called by my real name even more. Remember as a child when you could tell how much trouble you were in based on how many of your given names your mother used in calling you? It’s the same with wives. If your wife calls you by your first name I’d be giving her an apology, some flowers and expensive chocolates. If she uses your first and middle name you’d best be looking in the Yellow Pages for a good divorce attorney. And, my dear honeybun friends, if your wife ever calls you by your first, middle, and last names, prefaced by the word “Mister,” I’d commit a crime so heinous that it will land you in the FBI’s witness protection program so that Mrs. Babycakes can’t get her hands on you.

This combination "whodunit" and antique show gives a close and personal view of the life of a quilt and what may happen when a "good quilt goes bad". Students in the graduate level Care and Conservation of Textiles class assisted in the detective work needed to create this fascinating exhibition.The exhibition will be on display from April 1 through August 1, 2010. Quilts and other heirloom textiles are important artifacts that can represent the history of a person, a family, a community, or a country. Preserving them is a way to maintain an important link to the past. Unfortunately, there are many agents, both natural and human-made, that can slowly (or quickly!) destroy these pieces of our history. The exhibition Quilts Under the
Microscope presents a group of quilts that, after careful study, divulge some of the secrets of their past and help us determine the best to way to safeguard them for the future. Curated by Marin Hanson and Patricia Crews with the curatorial assistance of the students in UNL's graduate-level Care and Conservation of Textiles course, the exhibition introduces museum visitors to the ways in which institutions like the International Quilt Study Center use science and technical analysis to discover the history of objects and to inform the museum's activities of preservation, interpretation, and display. Visitors learn how they can take care of their families' valued quilts and textiles in their own homes, to ensure that these heirlooms survive well into the future.
South Asian Seams: Quilts from India, Pakistan, & Bangladesh The newest exhibition, May 15 - November 7, 2010 features traditional textiles from the South Asian subcontinent. Take a walk through Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh and learn about the textile traditions and the people who make and use them in this culturally rich region. This exhibition presents an international textile tradition that is placed in a rich cultural context that of the lives of women in diverse regions of the Indian subcontinent. The exhibition includes more than 30 examples of ralli and kantha. It also features a rich assortment of large-scale photographs depicting the lives of the women who make

these quilts. Narrating and illustrating the lives of these women is a vital component of the exhibition's story-line. Patchwork, embroidery, and applique all figure prominently in ralli - a traditional quilted textile of the region. Designs are not customarily drawn or written down on paper, but rather recorded in womens' memories and therefore passed down from generation to generation in the same way that folk tales and songs are transmitted. In the eastern Indian states of Bihar and West Bengal and across the border into Bangladesh, women create kantha and sujuni bedcoverings using quilting stitches as the primary decorative elements. Constructed from layers of old cotton sari and dhoti (women's and men's wrapped garments), kantha provide a way for women to give new life to old cloth. This exhibition is curated by Patricia Stoddard in cooperation with IQSC Curator of Exhibitions Marin Hanson. Stoddard is a leading scholar on Pakistani and Indian quilted textiles. Her book Ralli Quilts: Traditional Textiles of Pakistan and India is the only published work on the topic of quilts from this region.

Grasshopper Management in Wait and See Mode By Sandra Hansen, The Scottsbluff Star-Herald
"The weather has been strange, and there is speculation that this has messed up hatching patterns." Brill said there is a 30-day residual effectiveness that could lead to control of additional grasshoppers. "We could pick up the new hatchlings," Brill said. That could be important in determining the outcome of the RAATS project. Reports of new grasshoppers, and more adults, are coming in from around the county, Brill said. "Dean (McLain, of Ag Flyers) is getting calls from all over wanting him to come out and spray for grasshoppers," Brill said. "They're hatching all over, but we're about done with the state project." The cost of spraying done now will be paid by the landowner/lessee. The June 11 USDA announcement is not new or additional money

for controlling grasshoppers. From information he has received, Brill said the $11 million in funding is to pay for what has already been done. It will not aid those who still need to spray their land. Brill said the money would not have helped Goshen County anyway, because the county does its own. Funding for local projects comes from individual landowners, local government entities, some state funds, and, depending on the programs, other sources. The Department of Agriculture money is used only for government programs. He said it will be two to four weeks before they can get a clear picture of how effective this effort was. Brill is still concerned about the 2011 grasshopper population. He said the hatch this year is not normal, and with hatchlings showing up now, as well as adult hoppers, he doesn't know what to expect next year. "The weather has been strange, and there is speculation that this has messed up hatching patterns," Brill said. "Since it's been so cold, it could be that some of them are just now hatching." Brill said the sporadic hatching has been happening in many areas. "I'm wondering what will happen next year. So many are hatching now, how many will there be next year? "I know it's going to take a lot of funding and a lot of patience to deal with it," Brill said.
Dundy County Fair July 27-August 1, Benkelman
Phase one of the major push to manage grasshoppers in 2010 has been completed. Now the plan is to monitor rangeland, and then wait and see what kind of results the all-out effort generated. "So far, it's looking pretty good," said Steve Brill, superintendent of the Goshen County Weed & Pest department. "There are a couple of spots that will need retreated, but over all, we're seeing some good results." As part of the Wyoming aerial spraying project, Goshen County landowners signed up 248,728 acres. They are all protected under the program, even though only half were sprayed. Private land accounted for 112,000 of those acres. The rest are state and federal acres. About 6 million Wyoming acres were sprayed during the June effort. According to Brill, evidence of the effectiveness is in the areas where only two to five grasshoppers are found per square yard, a significant reduction from the 15 per square yard prior to the spraying. While early indications are that the program was successful, there are landowners in the county who did not participate earlier, who now want to have their land sprayed with the Dimilin/Canola mixture. They have to go it alone, though. Cost-share money is no longer available, as there was with the earlier program. Brill said he believes costs are higher, now, also. The statewide project cost $3.14 per
sprayed acre. With cost share, landowners paid about $1.25 per protected acre. Under the Reduced Agent Area Treatments (RAATs) program, the area to be sprayed is divided into strips. Every other strip is sprayed, saving time, materials and cost. The movement of grasshoppers between sprayed and unsprayed strips exposes them to the Dimilin, which retards their growth, eventually leading to their death.

Safeguard Animal and Human Health at County Fairs Noel Mues, Extension Educator University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Extension, Furnas County Media attention on livestock diseases, such as foot-and-mouth and mad cow disease is a constant reminder of the serious health and economic consequences of livestock disease for animals and humans. Following some simple regulations and precautions can help control the threat of livestock diseases and ensure a positive county fair experience for all who attend. Livestock disease outbreaks could be economically devastating to a state like Nebraska, which derives a large revenue portion from the industry. Most livestock diseases cannot be transmitted from animals to humans, but there are some that can affect both humans and animals. For the safety of all involved, it is wise to use sanitary practices at county and state fairs, and other livestock events. To prevent the spread of animal disease, exhibitors need to pay attention to the following practices: · Do not exhibit animals with clinical signs of contagious disease. · Have animals checked by a veterinarian and obtain a health certificate prior to the fair. · Do not share equipment among exhibitors unless it’s disinfected between uses. · When handling animals infected with ringworm or club lamb fungus, wear rubber gloves and wash with detergent soap after handling. · Change or wash clothing when returning home from the fair before working with other animals. · Isolate animals that you take home for at least 14 days to allow for clinical signs of infection to appear. · Seriously consider selling the animals to slaughter at the end of the show if that option is available. Fair visitors also can play an important role in preventing economic losses and illness with simple sanitary practices: · Do not touch or pet animals except at designated petting exhibits. · Wash your hands after direct contact with animals. · Avoid eating in animal exhibit areas. · Do not feed human food to animals. History of BSE in the United States and Canada – Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, known as BSE or mad cow disease, continues to
be a concern. BSE receives wide spread publicity because of ongoing surveillance of potential problem areas. Surveillance activities have resulted in several cases of BSE being diagnosed in the United States and Canada since December 23, 2003 when USDA announced the first confirmed case of BSE in the United States. Most recently, on February 26, 2008 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed BSE in a six-year-old dairy cow from Alberta. The animal's carcass was placed under CFIA control, and no part of it entered the human food or animal feed systems. As with all BSE cases that have been diagnosed since the first confirmed case in December, 2003 no part of any carcass has ever entered the human food supply or animal feed chain. Canada has taken all necessary measures to achieve the eventual elimination of BSE from the national cattle herd. The enhanced feed ban, which went into effect on July 12, 2007, will prevent more than 99 percent of potential BSE infectivity from entering the Canadian feed system. The CFIA expects to detect a small number of cases over the next 10 years as Canada progresses towards its goal of eliminating the disease from the national cattle heard. 4-H Livestock Program Doing It’s Part – 4-H members need to be aware of these enhanced surveillance activities and do their part to prevent the disease from spreading should it ever show up again in the United States. For many years, 4-H members exhibiting livestock at the fair have signed an ethics statement certifying that they haven’t used any non-
approved drugs on their animals, and that the waiting period had expired on any approved drugs used. Again this year, exhibitors of beef cattle or sheep must also certify that the animals have not been fed ruminant meat or bone meal. The statement was added three years ago to ease potential consumer fears over BSE. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned the use of ruminant proteins in feed for ruminant animals in 1997. Ruminant animals include cattle, sheep and goats. 4-H exhibitors may still use some types of animal proteins in ruminant feeds, including gelatin, milk and proteins from swine, poultry and horses. Exhibitors need to check feed labels carefully to determine the types of protein used. When in doubt contact the feed manufacturer. All 4-H members who exhibit livestock at county and state fair and/or the Ak-Sar-Ben Livestock Exposition are required to be certified in Livestock Quality Assurance. The certification training provides instruction on proper feeding, medication, and other livestock management issues. For more information on the regulations and suggestions, consult University of NebraskaLincoln Extension NebFact 01-482, Banned Mammalian Protein - What does it mean?; NebFact 01-484, Biosecurity - Protecting Your Health and the Health of Your Animals; and NebFact 01-483, Attending Fairs Safeguarding Your Health and Nebraska’s Livestock Industry.

Kaycee Werdel may be a math nerd, but she’s also a cowgirl. The Chadron, Neb. native competed at the Nebraska State High School Rodeo Finals in Hastings in four events: breakaway roping, barrel racing, pole bending, and team roping. She entered the finals in first place in the breakaway roping with enough of a season lead over the number two cowgirl that even after a bad first run, she was still in first place. Werdel, who graduated from high school this spring, loves to ride and rope, but math is also a favorite. “I like math,” she says, and her grades are evidence. Werdell was on the honor roll for all four years of high school, and is one of 1,000 minority students nationwide who was selected as a Gates Millenium Scholar. The scholarship, named after the computer tycoon, will pay Werdel’s way through her bachelor, master’s, and graduate degrees. She was nominated for the award because of her high grade point average, community service, and leadership talents. She wrote twelve essays over a four month period to earn the award. She plans on attending Chadron State College this fall to major in mechanical engineering. “I like figuring out how things work,” she says. She also plans on continuing her rodeo competition in college with team roping, barrel racing and breakaway roping. She already competes on the amateur level at rodeos in Nebraska and South Dakota. Werdel, whose mother is president of the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association, also enjoys graphic design. She creates a monthly newsletter for a grant program in South Dakota. The cowgirl has qualified for state rodeo finals all four of her high school rodeo career years and has twice been to the National High School Rodeo Finals, once as a sophomore and once as a junior.

Corn trade has been higher this week due to short covering following the supportive USDA Quarterly stocks and Planted Acreage Report last Wednesday. The weekly net change is 6 higher on the September contract and December is up 5 following the big up move late last week. The outside market influence has been supportive this week; crude is $2.30 higher, the dollar is 58 lower, and the DOW is up 314 points. Follow-through buying and continued short covering have been noted for the strength this week, trade should start to flatten out ahead of The USDA Supply and Demand report on Friday. The average trade guess for the old crop carryover is 1.405 billion with a range of 1.214-1.6 billion versus the 1.603 billion June number. The new crop carryover estimate is at 1.337 versus the June 1.573 numbers, the range of estimate is 833 million to 1.7 billion. We have rallied nearly 50 cents since the June 30th report, so any bullish numbers on Friday’s report should be priced-in. The report on Friday will influence trade this week, but the weather forecasts should continue to dictate trade longer-term. We still need to get this crop though pollination and the dough stage without much stress. Heavy rains fell across the western Corn Belt last weekend which continues to foster concern over flooded areas, but the acres not affected by standing water could have record yields. The East remains warm and dry with the weekend system slowly moving that direction. On the weekly report, crop condition came in at 71% good to excellent, down 2% from the previous week. Silking was listed as 19% complete, up 12% from last week. The weekly export sales will be delayed until Friday due to the holiday on Monday. The momentum is still up, but we are about to reach some upside targets. But any production short falls puts us on the point of demand rationing which will keep the market supported on any breaks near term. Hedgers call with questions.

Wheat trade has been higher this week due to follow-through buying and short covering. The weekly net changes are 27 higher in Chicago, KC is up 29, and Minneapolis is up 30. On the chart the September Chicago did reach the next upside target at $5.32, which is the 200-day moving average; there should be selling interest in this area, so fresh bullish news may now be needed to keep the market from slipping ahead of the report. The average trade guess for the July USDA carryover is at 968 for the 2009-10, and 1.033 billion for the July 2010-11 carryover; the range of estimates is 855 million to 1.1 billion. This is a huge, huge carryover which should not support a bull market, so many shorts have been caught off guard this past week. So some of the upside market movement has been weak shorts getting out of positions. The June USDA all wheat production estimate was at 2.067 billion bushels, the trade is expecting the number to inch up to 2.15 billion on the report this Friday which is behind the trade expecting the carryover to jump above 1 billion. September Chicago wheat is up nearly 90 cents now over the past month, with most of the gains over the past week. On the weekly report, winter wheat harvest was listed as 54% complete versus 50% a year ago and the 53% 5-year average. Winter wheat condition came in at 64% good to excellent, down 1% from the previous week. Spring wheat was listed as 52% headed versus only 28% a year ago and the 57% 5-year average. Spring wheat condition came in at 83% good to excellent versus 84% a week ago. The weekly export sales will be seen on Friday this week. Hedgers call with questions, continue to look forward at the carry in the futures for opportunities in 2011 and 2012.

Soybean trade is higher on the week due to short covering on Wednesday due to forecasts and spillover support from corn and beans. The weekly net change is 25 higher on the September contract and November is up 27. We were lower on the week until the strength on Wednesday. Meal is $7 higher and bean oil is up 81 points for the week. On the November chart, the 10-, 20, and 40-day moving averages were all consolidated around $9.14; the close above this level on Wednesday has turned the momentum higher. A second consecutive daily close above the 100-day at $9.30 would likely promote additional chart buying. Beans are now in the middle of our recent trading range and we could test higher levels. The next area of resistance is the 200-day up at $9.51 on the November contract. Position squaring ahead of the report on Friday should still limit upside; the average trade guess for the July USDA old crop 200910 carryover is 171 million bushels with a range of 140 to 195 versus the 185 June number. The new crop 201011 carryover estimate is at 354 million with a range of 250-385 million. On the weekly report, soybean emergence was listed as 95% complete versus the 87% 5-year average. Percent blooming came in at 23 versus 13% a year ago and the 20% 5-year average. The weekly export sales will be seen Friday morning due to the Holiday this week. The updated forecasts should continue to dictate trade, the momentum is now up, so a test of the upper part of our 2-month range should not be a surprise. Hedgers call with questions.

Iran Sanction by Congressman Adrian Smith Scottsbluff Office 416 Valley View Drive, Suite 600 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Phone: (308) 633-6333 Fax: (308) 633-6335
They say politics can make strange bedfellows. When it comes to a nuclear Iran, Congress certainly has put aside partisan politics in the interest of international safety. On June 24 the House of Representatives passed the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act by a vote of 408-8. In a day when party line votes are the norm, not the exception, such an overwhelming vote is truly remarkable – especially on such an important matter. A nuclear-armed Iran would pose a grave threat to the United States and the international community. The legislation I supported would amend the Iran Sanctions Act to impose new economic penalties aimed at forcing Iran to change its conduct, especially to end its nuclear weapons programs. Businesses affected include entities involved in refined petroleum sales to Iran; those providing support for Iran’s domestic refining efforts; and banking institutions involved with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Iran’s illicit nuclear program, or its support for terrorism. In addition, the legislation provides a framework by which states, local governments, and other investors can divest their portfolios of foreign companies involved in Iran’s energy sector and establish a mechanism to address concerns about diver-

sion of sensitive technologies to Iran through other countries. On June 16, European Union (EU) lawmakers passed their own round of sanctions targeting assets, visas, and cargo companies owned by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, in addition to companies investing, assisting, or transferring technology to Iranian oil and gas companies sanctioned by the EU. In late June, Canada also implemented harsher Iran sanctions. By placing crippling sanctions against Iran’s energy and financial sectors, democracies around the world have a chance to derail this rogue nation’s rush toward nuclear weapons. The Iranian regime’s obsession with possessing nuclear weapons is a nightmare scenario for the United States, Israel, and our allies in the Middle East and around the world. A nuclear Iran would cause a destabilizing arms race in the Middle East and could lead to untold conflicts. Iran’s leadership has threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, and it would not hesitate to put nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists to attack America or any of her allies at will. The rulers of Iran killed their own people for protesting a fraudulent election – imagine what they would do to Tel Aviv or New York City.

While this bill is a vast improvement from the rather weak resolution passed by the United Nations (which were diluted by Russia and China), the effectiveness of these sanctions depends on President Obama’s willingness to vigorously implement them to the fullest extent. The Act provides a number of waivers granting the Administration some flexibility in implementing sanctions. One such waiver would give the President authorization to put aside sanctions under certain circumstances for persons under the jurisdiction of governments which are closely cooperating with the U.S. in multilateral efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring or developing weapons of mass destruction. It is essential President Obama carries out the clear Congressional intent to cripple Iran’s energy and financial sectors. President Obama should not ignore any part of these sanctions. Now is the time for decisive action by America and our allies. With each passing day, the ruling regime in Iran moves one step closer to acquiring nuclear weapons. This is truly a horrifying prospect. I will continue to stand with my colleagues – Democrats and Republicans – and our allies to head off the growing Iranian threat.
Washington Needs Nebraska Values When It Comes To Spending by Senator Ben Nelson Omaha Office 7502 Pacific St.,Suite 205 Omaha, NE 68114 Phone: (402) 391-3411 Fax: (402) 391-4725
Like many states, Nebraska state government has a requirement when it comes to spending. Locked in the state’s constitution is a provision that requires a balanced budget. There is no borrowing and no deficit spending. It’s not easy to do, but during eight years as governor I balanced the state budgets without raising taxes by making tough choices when it came to spending. Now as a U.S. Senator I’m trying to insert that value into Washington spending, which is why I have insisted the Tax Extenders bill the Senate has been working on be paid for as much as possible. Unfortunately, it has contained a lot of extra new spending that goes right onto the federal deficit. Just Say No I’ve voted no on the bill a number of times because, while each revised proposal lowered the deficit spending, it’s still too much. The latest one would have added $33 billion to the deficit, which this year could hit $1.4 trillion for the second year in a row. In 2008 and 2009, America was on the brink of a depression. We had a genuine emergency that

required immediate action to keep the economy from a complete collapse that could have gone global. Borrowing and deficit spending in a major economic crisis is one thing. But when you're in an economic recovery as we are today, borrowing and deficit spending is another thing. Some say that a flood of new emergency government spending is needed to keep the recovery going. In my view, it could do the opposite and wash away the recovery. It’s risky to keep borrowing in a recovery. We just pile up more debts for our children to pay. Curb Deficit Spending Taxpayers are demanding fiscal responsibility and we need to listen to them. I understand the need to extend unemployment insurance benefits for Nebraskans and other Americans who remain out of work, but prefer we find cuts in federal spending and other ways to pay for those benefits. Some also have said we need this emergency spending to bail out cash-strapped states. The National Governors Association has asked Congress for $24 billion in additional Medicaid

funding to help them through hard times. Stop Unfunded Mandates The real problem is that Washington has got to stop passing unfunded mandates like this one onto the states. I’ve fought unfunded federal mandates for two decades. When I pushed to eliminate the unfunded mandate in the health reform bill last December, I was ridiculed by several governors, and some aspiring governors. Today, though, they want more money. And we all know they will want more later. Like many Americans, I’ve got bailout fatigue. Whether it’s bailing out Wall Street, Detroit, or the states, taxpayers just can’t afford any more. In addition, with hundreds of millions of economic recovery dollars still not spent in Nebraska and other states, it’s irresponsible to raise the deficit in Washington to balance budgets in state capitals. Nebraskans want Washington to stop the spending, cut the deficit and live within a responsible budget, and I’m working to deliver that as their senator.
Updated Financial Regulatory Bill Misses The Mark On Reform by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

Since the economic meltdown, momentum has been building in Washington to implement a reform bill that, above all else, would prevent our financial system from ever again failing us in the way it did in 2008. Yet amazingly, after two years of debate, the version agreed upon late last week by House and Senate conferees misses that mark by an astounding margin. If this updated bill passes both houses of Congress, American banks and businesses would face a new law that imposes new stifling federal regulations without fixing what went wrong. Small businesses, community banks, and citizens across Nebraska still reeling from the recession and just starting to regain their footing will be met with another punch. Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the bill is that no one truly knows what the impact will be. Just last week, after the final legislation was announced, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (whom the bill is named after) stated, "No one will know until this is actually in place how it works." Hearing this was tremendous-

ly disappointing. If endorsing this bill requires not much more than a wing and a prayer, that's a clear sign to me that we're not close to producing legislation to address the right issues. However, there are some aspects of the bill we do know, and it doesn't look promising for Nebraska, which had little if anything to do with the financial crisis. The bill creates a new federal bureaucracy and empowers it with the authority to arbitrarily regulate any "financial product" it deems "abusive." With such an open-ended definition, there really are no boundaries. If the bill becomes law, this bureaucracy will have an enormous and unchecked ability to regulate almost anything. Just as troubling are the rules and regulations the law itself imposes on small banks that were victims, not the perpetrators, of the crisis. One Nebraska banker recently wrote to me, "Banks like mine lack the internal resources to adhere to a multitude of new laws and regulations and would have to cut back – and in some cases terminate – operations … It will make it dramatically

harder for my bank to serve our customers and our local community." Incredibly, the bill also completely ignores two causes of our current financial woes: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. After contributing to the implosion of the housing market, they received billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailouts. Giving Fannie and Freddie a free pass puts Americans at risk of future bailouts. A reform bill that ignores these two mortgage giants is simply unacceptable. The bottom line is that this so-called reform bill is far from true reform: it won't prevent future crises. It will increase the power and number of federal bureaucracies – the very institutions that failed to foresee and prevent the crisis two years ago; and it will impose crippling new regulations on many Nebraskans who played no role in it. I sincerely believe Congress would be better off recycling this 2,300 page monstrosity and starting over with targeted reforms that address the systemic problems that led to the collapse.

Dr. Bruce Anderson, Professor of Agronomy Agronomy & Horticulture, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, Lincoln, NE Bales and stacks of hay left in the middle of fields have to be removed sometime. After the final cutting for the year, it may not matter too much if they set there for a while. But when more harvests are expected off that field, delaying removal can be harmful. One problem is directly under the bale or stack. Plants underneath often are killed if covered for more than a week or two. This may not hurt yield too much, but makes for a great place for weeds to get started. And you know how they can spread. Most of the damage, though, is due to wheel traffic on the regrowth. Studies have shown that when fields are dry, plants driven on before regrowth occurs yield about 5 to 7 percent less at next cut-

ting. It gets much worse if you wait to remove bales. Just seven days after cutting, when regrowth shoots had started to grow, yield was reduced over 25 percent and fewer of these plants survived. And worse yet is removing bales when fields are wet. Then wheel traffic causes much more compaction. When this happens, yield loss typically exceeds 30 percent. These studies emphasize the benefits of baling and removing bales from hay fields as quickly as possible after cutting as well as minimizing driving on wet soils. They also suggest that following the same trail when removing bales or stacks from fields can reduce losses from wheel tracks by limiting the total area damaged. Hay fields must be driven on, of course, to remove bales after harvest. But you can lessen damage by controlling where, when and how often you drive.

U.S. Soybean Farmers Define and Measure Sustainability On-Farm and in Livestock/Aquaculture Operations At a time when sustainability is hotter than ever, what’s often missing is a clear definition of what exactly the trendy term means. U.S. soybean producers are working to change that through a new web platform, www.usbthinkingahead.com, that defines the concept and points to agriculture as the original sustainability success story. “Many people define and measure sustainability differently, and the discussion about what it really means can generate more heat than light,” said David Wilson, USB Sustainability Initiative Chair and soybean farmer from Lincoln, Ala. “Agriculture has been working well for 10,000 years, so it has always been sustainable historically. But soybean producers are doing some innovative work recently to improve on that success and make sure soybean production continually decreases environmental impact and remains sustainable going forward.” According to Wilson, U.S. soybean sustainability also extends beyond the farm. High-quality feed, which represents the primary use for soybeans, helps significantly increase the efficiency of livestock production. With most soy being used for livestock and aquaculture feed, there are sustainability benefits that result from U.S. soy through increased production efficiency, Wilson said. “Soy-based feed ingredients provide excellent nutrition,” Wilson said. “Using soy for animal feed increases the efficiency and decreases impact per unit of output from poultry, beef and pork operations.” For USB, defining soybean sustainability accurately is far more than a marketing goal. Wilson says there’s a lot more at stake than most people realize. “In just 20 years, the amount of grain-producing land per person is projected to drop to one-third of
what it was in 1950,” Wilson said. “At most, there is 12 percent more arable land available that is not presently forested or environmentally marginal. Meanwhile, the World Water Council projects that in just 10 years, the need for fresh water will be 17 percent higher than water availability. These are significant problems that threaten the food supply, yet these issues get little media attention amidst all the green chatter that’s going on.” USB’s efforts to address those challenges are the subject of a blog at www.usbthinkingahead.com, along with a Twitter feed and other social media sites. “We’re trying to proactively define and measure our industry in an effort to showcase what we’re already doing as producers,” said Doug Goehring, a soybean farmer from North Dakota. “We’ve made great strides in production agriculture in this country. We have been practicing sustainability, we are sustainable, and we’ll continue to perfect that.” Those improvements are being measured through studies such as a recent report by Field to Market, a multi-stakeholder group comprised of grower organizations, agribusinesses, food companies and conservation organizations, which documented recent improvements in soybean production. The study found: Soybean production increases since 1987 resulted in soybean land use per bushel decreasing by 26 percent. “Without those yield improvements, we would have needed to add land area about the size of Indiana into production to meet the current demand for soybeans,” Wilson said. Energy use decreased 1.34 million BTUs per acre, or 54 percent from 1987 to 2008. In the same period, energy use per bushel decreased by 61 percent due to more sustainable farming practices.
Soybean growers decreased soil loss by more than one ton per acre, or 37 percent over the study period. In 2008, soil loss per bushel was 46 percent less than in 1987, resulting from shifts in production practices including reduced-tillage adoption. Soybean farmers have reduced carbon emissions by 22 pounds per acre or, 24 percent over the study period. Emissions per bushel decreased 35 percent. Since 2000, the soybean industry has reduced overall carbon emissions by an average of 104 million pounds of carbon each year. Water use efficiency per bushel increased by 20 percent between 1987 and 2008. “There is a misconception that farmers aren’t interested in the environment,” said Mike Thede, a USB farmer-leader and soybean farmer from Palmer, Neb. “Farmers grow their product in the environment, so it’s in our best interest to take care of the environment.” Given that agriculture has kept pace with demand in the past, it has always been sustainable, Wilson said, but continual improvements are needed to keep production in step with demand and natural resources: “Soybean producers are working to make sure soybean production remains sustainable, continuing to deliver more food while decreasing impact at the same time.” USB is made up of 68 farmer-directors 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, USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soybean checkoff.

Entomology Research Evolution Nurtured By Gary L. Hein Director of UNL Doctor of Plant Health Program Former Extension Entomologist Panhandle Research and Extension Center Entomology was established early in the history of the Panhandle Research and Extension Center, with numerous insect studies occurring during the first 50 years. These efforts encompassed numerous insects, but focused on potato insect pests. Studies were undertaken by entomologists who primarily spent summers or shorter periods working in the Panhandle. Their work had a significant impact on the potato industry, but also impacted other agricultural commodities through the development of cultural and chemical recommendations for managing numerous pests. Full-time entomologist In the late 1950s, the importance of entomology research was recognized and an entomologist became one of the few disciplines to warrant a fulltime position. Art Hagan began at the Panhandle Station in 1957, and his responsibilities at first were predominantly research. However, the demand from clientele for information resulted in his becoming more involved in Extension, and his efforts eventually developed into a split assignment in both research and extension. Hagan provided support for all aspects of entomological expertise. He became the expert on western bean cutworm on corn and dry beans in the 1960s, as this insect became established as an important pest on these two crops in the region. Hagan also made an impact through his work on the identification, feeding and management of grasshoppers, one of the most important insect problems in western Nebraska. He generated information on the management of numerous other insect pests of sugarbeet, dry beans, and other crops. Hagan provided consistent entomological expertise for the Panhandle until 1987, when he moved to North Platte to become survey entomologist. Changing pest issues Through the years insect pest issues in the Panhandle have constantly evolved. The Russian wheat aphid was introduced into Nebraska in 1987, and the rapid occurrence of this devastating pest was an important stimulus for the hiring of the next entomologist in 1988. Gary Hein began as entomologist at the Panhandle Center in 1988 with a 50 percent research and 50 percent extension appointment. Wheat The severity of the Russian wheat aphid in the late 1980s required a rapid response. Research and extension efforts were targeted at establishing threshold, sampling, and control recommendations to manage this serious threat. Later efforts have
also documented the importance of natural enemies in limiting the continued seriousness of this pest. In 1993, serious wheat streak mosaic infections in Cheyenne County brought about efforts to investigate the virus's vector, the wheat curl mite. Extensive research efforts have provided better understanding of the mite's ecology and movement and have resulted in improved recommendations for managing the mite and virus. In addition, efforts to screen resistant varieties have resulted in the release of Mace, a variety with much improved virus resistance. Another new pest of wheat was found in the Panhandle in the mid 1990s. The wheat stem sawfly became a serious issue in fields along the Wyoming border. Investigations into the timing of emergence of the insect led to recommendations for managing this insect. However, this insect slowly continues to spread into additional wheat growing areas in western Nebraska. Dry bean insects Beginning in the mid-1990s, mild winter conditions led to the Mexican bean beetle becoming a more serious pest of dry beans in the North Platte Valley. Research has established an egg mass sampling plan, improved thresholds, and better understanding of the insect's biology and management. Western bean cutworm has been an important pest across the region in both dry beans and corn. Efforts in the 1960s began to uncover important aspects of the biology of the insect. Research through the last 15 years has increased our knowledge and helped to improve the efficiency of management of this insect in both crops. Recent movement of this insect into the central and eastern Corn Belt has increased the importance of this insect and increased the impact of the work done on the western Nebraska pest. Sugar beet insects A serious insect problem in sugar beets was first observed in the North Platte Valley with the introduction of the sugar beet root maggot in the late 1970s. Research efforts in the 1980s and 90s identified the extent of the spread of the maggot and management options. Further understanding of the biology of the maggot has explained the recent reductions of this insect since 2000 due to drought conditions and the potential for the return of the problem with adequate spring rains. Serious infestations of sugar beet root aphid in 1997 brought about extensive effort to establish the value of resistant varieties and develop better aphid screening procedures. The result was an increased emphasis on the use of varieties resistant to the aphid and better management recommendations.
Insect diversity Numerous other insect pests have been studied through the years in an effort to maintain effective and up-to-date recommendations on their management. These efforts have targeted insect pests that affect both commonly grown crops as well as some of the specialty crops being developed and grown in the region. In addition, the Center entomologist deals with the public in identifying and explaining often dramatic occurrences of insect issues in the Panhandle. Many of these insect issues are unique to the region, and they can often be spectacular. Perhaps the most impressive insect invasions that occur in western Nebraska are the cyclical infestations of grasshopper hoards. But one of the more troublesome insect events in the Panhandle is the annual migration of "millers" to the mountains. The migration is often preceded by invasions of crops, gardens and/or buildings by the millers' immature form, the army cutworm. Amazing entomological invasions have occurred from time to time, including the carabid beetle invasion of downtown Sidney, mayflies that descended on Scottsbluff, or the almost regular infestations of houses by a series of nuisance invaders. The often spectacular flights of dispersing winged ants in late summer after a significant rain stirs questions of potential invasions, but more practically, the cleaning of greasy windshields. The diversity of insect occurrences in the panhandle keeps the entomologist's job interesting with no lack of problems to pursue. The torch of entomological research and extension work has recently been passed (January 2010) to Jeff Bradshaw, who became only the third entomologist to work in the Panhandle in the last 50 years. Through the years, the efforts of the entomologist have been supported by numerous technicians and summer students. These individual have contributed greatly to these accomplishments. During the last 22 years, a trio of technicians (Rick Patrick, John Thomas, and Susan Harvey) has combined for over 50 years of service to the entomological efforts in the Panhandle.

Wheat Scab a Problem in Southern Nebraska Noel Mues, Extension Educator University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension. Furnas County The unusually wet weather has caused scab, or Fusarium head blight, to show up in several southern Nebraska wheat fields, University of Nebraska-Lincoln specialists say. However, it is too late in the growing season for wheat growers to combat the problem this year, said Stephen Wegulo, UNL plant pathologist in the university's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The only way scab can be managed is by planting tolerant cultivars, crop rotation out of cereal grains or grasses, fungicide seed treatments and foliar fungicide applications which should be timed to prevent infection, which occurs mainly during flowering. In addition to lowering yields and grain quality, the scab fungus also can produce mycotoxins, said Michael Carlson, UNL diagnostic toxicologist. "Most likely the fungus will produce deoxynivalenol, or DON, commonly referred to as vomitoxin, and zearalenone, but not fumonisins, other common, but more toxic mycotoxins," Carlson said. Vomitoxin was found to be more prevalent during the wheat scab epidemic of 1982 and zearalenone also was found at a much lower incidence. "Fumonisins have not been found in scabby wheat because the species of Fusarium mold that produces fumonisins is not the same as that which causes wheat scab," Carlson said. "In addition, the weather conditions favorable to wheat scab do not favor fumonisin production and fumonisins are usually found in corn, not wheat." Symptoms of scab, or Fusarium head blight, include premature bleaching of one or more wheat's spikelets or the entire immature head. Bleaching can start anywhere on the head and spread until the entire head is bleached, Wegulo said. Bleached spikelets are sterile and contain shriveled and/or discolored seed. During humid conditions, white or pink fungal growth with
orange spore masses may be seen on the bleached spikelets. Blue-black fruiting structures also can form, giving the head a scabbed appearance, hence the name scab. The disease is caused by several species of the fungus Fusarium and is favored by wet weather during the growing season. The fungus also causes stalk and ear rots in corn and seedling blights in cereal grains. It can survive in soil or corn, wheat and grass stubble. Scab also is more severe in reduced or no-till fields, especially if wheat follows corn. Spores of the scab fungus are carried to wheat heads by air currents. Most infections occur during flowering because anthers and pollen serve as a food source for the fungus. Infected seed can transmit the fungus to emerging seedlings, Wegulo said. "This can cause severe seedling blight under favorable conditions for disease development," he said. "During warm temperatures (between 77 and 86 degrees), blight symptoms on heads appear within three days following infections. Therefore, a crop that appeared healthy a few days ago can suddenly show widespread symptoms." The disease can take over an entire field in severe cases. The disease can result in significant yield loss – potentially 100 percent if grain is rejected because of the toxins the fungus can produce, Wegulo said. Carlson said the presence of zearalenone would be of greater concern than the presence of vomitoxin. Zearalenone acts like estrogen, the female sex hormone, and can affect the reproductive cycle of breeding females, especially pigs. Ruminant animals are not as sensitive as non-ruminants to the effects of zearalenone. Vomitoxin is not very toxic, Carlson said, but it can affect feeder pig performance. "It is associated with feed refusal in pigs," he said. "Feeder steers and heifers are not adversely affected by vomitoxin in the diet." For information about using feed contaminated with zearalenone or vomitoxin and Food and Drug Administration recommendations, consult Crop Watch, UNL's crop production newsletter.

Water Requirements for the Cow Herd Dr. Glenn Selk, ProfessorAnimal Reproduction Specialist Animal Science - Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK During hot summer months, the water needed for a cow herd often determines several other management decisions. To best assess the adequacy of water quantities in surface water or from wells or "rural water" supplies, it first is necessary to have an idea of the amount
needed for cattle of different sizes and stages of production that you may have during the summer on the ranch. A University of Georgia publication lists the estimated water requirements for cattle in different production stages if the daily high temperature is 90 degrees F. They suggest that amount of water required can be estimated by the production stage and the weight of the cattle. For instance, a growing animal or a lactating cow needs 2 gallons of water per 100 pounds
of body weight. A non-lactating cow or bull needs just 1 gallon of water per 100 pounds of body weight. If you are estimating water needs for your cattle, be honest about the weight of the cows in the herd. Many cows today weigh 1200 pounds or more (some a lot more). Therefore expect that most spring calving cows will need at least 24 gallons per day for themselves and another 5 to 10 gallons of water for their calf. On days with extreme heat, expect the water usage to go up even further.
NCBA Statement on FDA Draft Guidance on “The Judicious Use of Medically Important Antimicrobial Drugs in Food-Producing Animals” and working with veterinarians to select and use antibiotics carefully when needed. Ranchers work with their veterinarians to provide comprehensive herd-health plans to prevent problems and treat issues when they arise. "NCBA will carefully review this draft guidance and the reports cited as the basis of their reasoning for their framework for policy on this issue. NCBA supports actions based only on sound, peer-reviewed science and risk assessment relative to the use of antibiotics. More clarity is needed in definitions related to many of the concepts in this document, and we look forward to continuing to provide input to FDA. "As FDA officials seek stakeholder input, we encourage them to go out and visit farms and ranches to see firsthand how our producers are utilizing antimicrobials and working with their veterinarians to keep cattle healthy and ensure safe and wholesome beef."

"Antimicrobial resistance is a multi-faceted and extremely complex issue that cannot be adequately addressed by solely focusing on the use of these medications in animal agriculture. Only by carefully evaluating antimicrobial resistance in a comprehensive manner that evaluates all of the peer-reviewed science related to all animal use, human use and industrial use will we effectively address this important issue. "The industry actively monitors the international science on livestock antibiotic use and antimicrobial resistance to ensure our policies and guidelines remain consistent with current knowledge on this complex issue. Ranchers have an obligation to protect cattle health and welfare. We also have an obligation to protect human health by promoting food safety and providing a safe and wholesome beef supply. The prudent and appropriate use of antibiotics
and other modern compounds is an essential tool for beef producers to prevent, control and treat disease in cattle. Preventative medicine is the cornerstone of maintaining a healthy U.S. cattle herd. "The industry’s Beef Quality Assurance program (BQA) has been training cattle ranchers about the safe and appropriate use of antibiotics for more than two decades. Beef ranchers are expected to follow the Producer Guidelines for Judicious Use of Antimicrobials, which have been in place since 1987. The guidelines are based on the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) and the Academy of Veterinary Consultant’s (AVC) judicious use guidelines and strengthened to include beef producer’s commitment to the importance of human use antimicrobials "Foundations of our Judicious Use Guidelines include preventing problems by appropriate husbandry, nutrition and cattle management;

Lean hog trade has been higher this week due to profit taking by market shorts and spillover support from the stock market. The weekly net changes are $.77 higher on the August contract and October is up $1.22. Cash is still in the mid $70 area versus the August $81 area, so there is cash optimism priced-in. The cutout has been lower this week, but processing margins still remain adequate. Over the last six weeks, weekly sow slaughter has declined by 10% versus this time a year ago. Fewer slaughter sows is likely a sign of increased sows kept for breeding which suggests expanding herds. On the chart, support is down at the June low of $78.20 and resistance is up at $82.20 which is the 20-day. Hedgers call with questions; the above statistic is one that suggests you look to lock in forward margins on the board – and best that you did it prior to this recent grain/feed cost run up.

Live cattle trade has been higher this week due to chart buying and spillover support from the stock market. The weekly net changes are 102 higher on the August contract and October is up 95. Light cash trade has been seen at $91 this week which is steady versus the previous week. There is still some cash optimism for the remainder of the week with additional cash trade called steady to $2 higher. Packer margins remain comfortable and the holiday on Monday has packers short bought. Demand does typically decline following the July 4th holiday, which may limit cash upside. Hedgers call with questions.
The cutout values were lower Wednesday with choice down 32 at 155.62 and select down 19 at 146.28. Early estimates are suggesting that the June placements will increase sharply and possibly exceed June 2009 numbers by 15%; this along with the big May placements will limit upside on the August forward futures.

Less Corn in Ground Nebraska farmers have planted fewer acres of corn, winter wheat and hay for 2010, but more acres of soybeans, dry edible beans, and sunflowers, according to a report issued this morning by the Nebraska field office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service. The summary is based on acres planted as of June 1. The 8.8 million acres of corn are down 4 percent from 2009, with biotechnology varieties still accounting for 91 percent of the acres. Meanwhile, soybean acres increased 13 percent to a record 5.4 million acres. Biotech varieties resistant
to herbicides accounted for 94 percent of the planted acres, down from 96 percent last year. The 2010 acres for other crops include: Winter wheat - 1.52 million acres for harvest, down 5 percent. Sorghum - 145,000 acres, down 38 percent from 2009 and the fewest since 1930. Alfalfa hay - 920,000 acres for harvest, down 3 percent. Other hay - 1.75 million acres, unchanged. Dry edible beans - 160,000 acres, up 23 percent. Oat seedings - 95,000 acres, down 5 percent.
Proso millet - 95,000 acres, unchanged. Sunflowers - 65,000 acres, up 25 percent. Sugar beets - 50,000 acres, down 6 percent. Grain on hand Nebraska grain stocks held in all positions on June 1 were: Corn - 521 million bushels, up 7 percent and the most since 1989. Soybeans - 41.5 million bushels, down 7 percent. Wheat - 36.6 million bushels, more than double last year. Sorghum - 4.9 million bushels, down 32 percent.
Five-year, $5 Million Project Will Offer Incentives to Retire Irrigation By Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub The Lower Republican Natural Resources District has been awarded nearly $1 million in federal funds to invest in water conservation measures, including incentives to retire irrigated acres. U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced Friday that 28 projects across the nation, including three in Nebraska, will receive $19.7 million in USDA funds this fiscal year through the Agricultural Water Enhancement Program administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

"That's good. That's fantastic," LRNRD General Manager Mike Clements said, explaining that the $999,240 approved for his district is the exact amount requested this year as part of an application for nearly $4 million in AWEP funds over five years. "That probably means we'll get the whole thing." Funds for the next four years likely will be allocated year to year, he added. The LRNRD will provide $1 million in matching funds, boosting the project to $5 million over five years. Clements said the project's three options are for 77,000 acres in the district - Furnas, Harlan and Franklin counties and parts of Webster and Nuckolls counties - that are closest to the Republican River. The options are: - Retire irrigation for five years on up to 4,300 acres. Payments will be based on the irrigation effects on the river, up to $173 per acre per year.

- Permanently retire irrigation on 2,496 acres with a one-time payment of $1,400 per acre. - Pay half the cost (estimated at about $300 per pivot) to install soil moisture sensors as an irrigation water management tool. "We would like to get started by the end of the month," Clements said, but he's not sure all the details can be in place to take applications by then. The AWEP grants list also includes $2 million for the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources for another incentive program to retire irrigated acres in the Platte Basin. The goal is to reduce water consumption in the critical habitat area, the Central Platte Basin. The third Nebraska project approved was for groundwater conservation and groundwater quality improvements in the York-based Upper Big Blue NRD. That project received $1,012,530.

Rain Not Only Problem for Farmers By Chabella Guzman, The Scottsbluff Star-Herald Weeds, to the untrained eye, may appear to make the landscape and fields green, but they can be a real problem if left unchecked. With the cool wet weather from last year and heavy rainfall so far this year, weeds are posing something of a problem for crops in the Panhandle and in Goshen County, Wyo. Weeds can easily take 30 percent of the yield in a year like this where moisture and cool temperatures dominate the weather, according to Will Eitzman, business development manager-agronomist for Panhandle Coop. "Weeds are growing vigorously and can even take more than 30 percent in crops including in wheat, which is another crop showing a lot of weeds this year," he said. The situation started last fall during harvest season according to Eitzman. The area received a lot of moisture in October and November creating good conditions for winter weeds, like mustard, dandelions and thistle. "Cool temps are causing the crops to struggle with their growth, but is good for the weeds that are outgrowing the crops," he said. In early crops, such as corn and sugar beets, there is plenty of overgrowth with weeds. "The corn and sugar beets are competing with the weeds for nutrients and moisture," Eitzman said. "They are suffering, as they are planted early, but we are beginning to see the beans and sunflowers also coming up with a lot of weeds." Eitzman added that there has been a shift in weeds this year that they haven't seen in a while. Weeds such as mares tail, wild buckwheat and kochia are coming up and it is hard for farmers who just use Roundup to control them. "Farmers should be using a tank mix with other herbicides before planting, to give the crops residual control," he said. Many of the chemicals that have been used for pre-emergence of the crops, and controlling the weeds, have lost some of their effectiveness, as they have been dissipated by the moisture. "Its important to get into the corn before the crops begin to canopy and lay a herbicide along with Roundup to help control the weeds through the summer," Eitzman said. Farmers should also look towards the fall and watch what weeds are coming up so they can be controlled and don't go to seed, to provide a seed bank for next year. Weeds can lie viable in the soil for seven years or longer and when they receive excess moisture the seeds reactivate.
Enrollment Open for NE Wheat Stubble Program
Some of the weeds such as mares tail, lambs quarters and kochia are important to watch as some studies show they are becoming more resilient to Roundup. "The weeds are not tolerant to glyphosate, but can be difficult to control with just Roundup," Eitzman said. He suggests that farmers do some crop scouting, and contact their herbicide dealer if necessary. Taking an inventory of the weeds in the fields, and making an early application while they are still in their early stages, is the best course of action. Once the weeds get to two inches or more they are harder to control. "We are definitely at the mercy of Mother Nature with the rash of weed problems this spring," Eitzman said. "But it's not too late to get a good tank mix and control a number of weeds."
Landowners in parts of southwest Nebraska can enroll acres in a new incentive program to enhance pheasant hunting in the area. The Wheat Stubble Management Program is offered in portions of northwest Hitchcock, southeast Hayes and northwest Red Willow counties. Landowners receive payments for tall wheat stubble and pheasant friendly managed wheat stubble, and they receive an additional payment if those acres allow public walk-in hunting access. Each landowner may enroll up to 320 acres for two years. The goals of the program are to increase and improve pheasant habitat and provide additional public hunting access on private land. Landowners can contact T.J. Walker or Justin Haahr at 308-535-8025.

Nebraska State Climatologist: Will July be Wet or Dry? While much of Nebraska received what seemed like an endless stream of storms in June, more rain still is needed in July. Although most soils across the state are soggy and saturated, crops will need some timely precipitation events to offset the risk of stress development during corn pollination, said Al Dutcher, state climatologist in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. An upper air trough expected to slide across the state this weekend could sink far enough south to bring a return to heavy thunderstorm activity, especially over northern Nebraska; however, mod-

els switch between keeping the moisture across the Dakotas or shifting it further south across Nebraska and Kansas, Dutcher said. This makes predicting July precipitation difficult. A shift south certainly would create additional concerns as river basins likely will still have above normal flows and soils will not have dried out sufficiently to absorb intense rainfall, he said. "June rainfall reports from volunteer observers were most likely record breaking," he said. "I fully expect that many of these locations will show June 2010 precipitation totals that exceed the records set in June 1993." A broad area of central and eastern Nebraska received 8 inches of moisture, with an area extending from Broken Bow southeast through Omaha receiving 9.5 to 12 inches. A couple of isolated locations reported rainfall over 15 inches. An analysis of June moisture levels through June 23 showed no reporting site with below normal precipitation. Surpluses of 3-5 inches are common over the eastern two-thirds of the state, with the hardest hit areas indicating surpluses of 8-12 inches. Dutcher said what the state needs is normal precipitation once a week. Excess rain will cause
more flooding to already stressed rivers and streams, while dry weather could mean the potential for shallow corn root syndrome. Irrigators should closely monitor their growing corn crop, Dutcher said. "It is not clear how well roots have developed with all of the June moisture that fell on soils that were already near or at field capacity," he said. Poor rooting structure (shallow root syndrome) concerns are being raised in portions of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. "There have been isolated reports of corn plants falling over because their anchor roots were in saturated soil and hadn't gone deep enough to support the plant," he said. "It is possible that the same conditions may develop in Nebraska, but so far I haven't been aware of any reported instances." If roots have not developed deep into the soil profile, stress likely will occur with a couple of weeks of dry weather. Periodic field scouting should be conducted to monitor plant health so that irrigators can keep ahead of crop water demands, instead of trying to play catch-up during the mid-July through August period.

CROPS STILL RATED IN GOOD SHAPE Continued from page 1 The weekend rains are timely as the corn pollination starts. According to the weekly crop and weather report, seven percent of the crop has silked, ahead of last year, but equal to the five year average. Al Dutcher, state climatologist in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, said the crops will need some timely precipitation events to offset the risk of stress development during corn pollination. During June, Dutcher said a broad area of central and eastern Nebraska received eight inches of moisture, with an area extending from Broken Bow southeast through Omaha receiving 9.5 to 12 inches. A couple of isolated locations reported rainfall over 15 inches. Dutcher said what the state needs is normal precipitation once a week. Excess rain, he said, will cause more flooding to already stressed rivers

and streams, while dry weather could mean the potential for shallow corn root syndrome. Irrigators should closely monitor their growing corn crop, Dutcher said. "It is not clear how well roots have developed with all of the June moisture that fell on soils that were already near or at field capacity," he said. Poor rooting structure (shallow root syndrome) concerns are being raised in portions of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, Dutcher said. The weekly crop report said that corn conditions, statewide, were 83 percent good or excellent for irrigated corn and 84 percent good or excellent for dryland, both near levels a year ago. While the crop report was positive, Dutcher said that aside from the threat of shallow root syndrome, crops generally are not as healthy now as in past years, according to the vegetative health index, which is a satellite image of vegetation. Of particular concern, he said, is much of east-
ern Nebraska, especially near the Platte River Valley system northward to southeast South Dakota and extending to the Platte River system to Lexington to the Loup River Valley to the Ord and Broken Bow areas. "Vegetation in the Sandhills is phenomenal, but areas with extensive flooding are showing yellowing corn," Dutcher said. "That leads to the question, what impact has all this rain had on nitrogen applications?" The weekly crop report said pasture and range conditions were 90 percent good or excellent. Soybean conditions were 74 percent good or excellent with soybean blooming at 17 percent. State wheat conditions 79 percent good or excellent and alfalfa was 83 percent good or excellent with the second cutting of hay at 34 percent complete. Wild hay conditions 89 percent good or excellent.

NEBRASKA STATE CLIMATOLOGIST: WILL JULY BE WET OR DRY? Continued from page 24 producers, the crop will be at the mercy of Mother Nature. Aside from the threat of shallow root syndrome, crops generally are not as healthy now as in past years, according to the vegetative health index, which is a satellite image of vegetation. Of particular concern is much of eastern Nebraska, especially near the Platte River Valley system northward to southeast South Dakota and extending to the Platte River system to Lexington to the Loup River Valley to the Ord and Broken Bow areas. "Vegetation in the Sandhills is phenomenal, but areas with extensive flooding are showing yellowing corn," Dutcher said. "That leads to the question, what impact has all this rain had on nitrogen applications?" On a positive note, the abundance of late season snows and heavy spring moisture have resulted in full pools for all Wyoming Platte River reservoirs. "In fact, there is currently 200,000 acre feet of water being stored in their flood pools to mitigate
flooding upstream from Lake McConaughy," Dutcher said. Lake McConaughy had 1.5 million acre feet (full is 1.7 million acre feet) in storage as of June 30, nearly 550,000 acre feet more than at this time last year. Inflows have been running close to 6,000 cubic feet per second, about four times the normal flow for this time of year. The latest projections indicate that high flows will likely continue well into July, with an outside chance that Big Mac will reach capacity before the end of the summer. Even if it doesn't fill completely, it is likely to reach at least 90 percent of capacity, barring the development of an intense drought. The latest Climate Predication Center forecast suggests there will be additional inflows into McConaughy. The two-week lead forecast for July indicates above normal moisture in the eastern two-thirds of the state, coupled with below normal temperatures. CPC currently anticipates that
June conditions will continue during July, although recent temperature trends would suggest that their forecast is too cool. Much of the area south and southeast of Nebraska has been experiencing a prolonged period of temperatures in the 90s to low 100s coupled with high dew point temperatures. "We have been on the northern fringe of this region," Dutcher said. "With the abundance of June rainfall and full to saturated soil profiles, evaporation and plant transpiration will be adding additional moisture to the lower atmosphere, increasing the risk for heat stress for livestock producers." An absence of wind could easily produce a scenario similar to last June when temperatures soared into the 90s and, coupled with dew points in the low 70s, produced consecutive days of heat indices in the 105 to 120 degree range.

WHAT IF YOUR LOCAL ANIMAL AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY DISAPPEARED?
What else would disappear with it? Well, to start, the millions of dollars that livestock and poultry producers generate to help build and restore your local schools and parks. Then there’s the locally produced meat that we trust to be part of the safe and healthy meals we feed our families.

And of course saying goodbye to your local poultry and livestock industries would also mean saying goodbye to the number one customer for U.S. soybean meal. Animal agriculture helps our community thrive. That’s why it’s important that we continue to give them our support. Because a safe and secure food supply and a safe and secure rural community both come from the same place – inside the barns and out in the ﬁelds of America’s farmers and producers. Soybean farmers helping livestock and poultry producers just makes sense.
