Jessica Johnson, UNL Extension Educator, Ag Economics Economists are often asked: What do you think prices will do next? The truth is, no matter how much anyone watches the market they can never be 100 percent accurate in predicting where it will go next. So many factors play into supply and demand, it is often difficult to predict which force will have the greatest influence. Producers are generally well informed about domestic markets.

However, identifying and tracking international market signals is more of a challenge, so valuable insight can help in making informed marketing decisions. Moving into late summer, one market to watch is the international wheat market. Wheat is the No. 1 traded commodity on the world market in terms of volume. The United States is the largest exporter, moving 35 million metric tons (MMT) in 2010, more than half of its domestic production. These facts make U.S. wheat highly dependent

on the world market, making it important for those selling wheat to understand the changing market conditions. A few of the more important indicators are exchange rates, competitive substitutes, available wheat supplies, and competitor production area news. 1. Exchange rates: The strength or relative value of the dollar to other currencies is a key factor in trading products. The stronger the

U.S. Seed Corn Crop Saved by Irrigation By Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub KEARNEY - Irrigation didn't just save Nebraska's grain crops this year, it preserved seed production for 2013 and beyond. Spokespeople for two of the largest seed corn producers in Nebraska and in the entire Corn Belt said two key risk management tools, irrigation and overproduction, will allow a big enough harvest this year to meet most of their customers' needs for 2013. Most Eastern Corn Belt grain production is on dryland acres that have suffered severely during the 2012 drought. However, Monsanto and DuPont Pioneer have seed corn fields in that region under irrigation, just as they are in Nebraska. For daily agriculture news, updates and local happenings, visit the Heartland Express website at www.myfarmandranch.com

Much of the seed planted from Nebraska to the West Coast is grown within a 50-mile radius of Kearney. The Monsanto Corn Production Facility on the east side of Kearney is the company's farthest west seed processing plant. Monsanto Public Affairs Manager Danielle Stuart of St. Louis said risk management also includes “planting across a wide geography.” That extends to fields in South America where winter production can help fill in for any U.S. seed production challenges. “We do recommend that farmers talk with their dealers or sales reps and order early to ensure they get their first or second choices of hybrids,” Stuart said about seed supplies for 2013.

Meanwhile, Mike O'Neill of Kearney, an account manager for DuPont Pioneer, said, “Most of the [Pioneer] supply we get in this part of the world in Nebraska and the western United States was planted at York and Doniphan.” He said those Nebraska fields look good. “We always have a field here or there, a hybrid, a seed raised in small quantities that's affected by hail and so forth,” O'Neill said, when asked about overall seed availability for 2013. He added that DuPont Pioneer also is starting to produce seed in Argentina and Chile that could help fill gaps in U.S. seed supplies.

September 13, 2012

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

Allen Dutcher

Nebraska finally received a widespread rainfall event during the 9/13-9/14 period. Precipitation totals ranged from 0.25 to 0.75 inches across the western third of the state, increasing to over 0.75 inches in Eastern Nebraska. Hopefully this rain event is a sign that more favorable moisture patterns may be developing. Temperatures began to break in mid-August, but precipitation has been slow to respond. During the past 30 days, temperatures have been averaging close to normal across Southeast Nebraska and 2-5 F above normal across Western Nebraska. Although warm, the intensity of the heat has diminished as departures from normal were running 6-8 F above normal during July and August. Week One Forecast, 9/15 - 9/21: Perhaps the coolest week of temperatures are in store for Nebraska since May. Weather models indicate that there is the potential to see three shots of Canadian air make their way into the central U.S. during this forecast period. After a brief dry spell since the widespread rain event that occurred during the 9/12-9/13 period, another surge of cold air is indicated by the models to enter the state as early as the evening of 9/17. Light to moderate rainfall should push south from the Dakota’s into northern Nebraska during the last quarter of 9/16 and clear southern

Nebraska during the afternoon hours of 9/17. After a brief lull, another push of cold air is forecasted to make its way through the state on 9/19, with widely scattered showers possible across the eastern half of the state. Models currently indicate that south central and southeast Nebraska have the greatest probability of receiving accumulating rainfall. Another front is forecasted to push south on 9/21 with light to moderate precipitation, especially across the eastern two-third's of the state. High Temperatures: 9/15 (75 E - 88 W), 9/16 (75 N - 90 S), 9/17 (63 N - 72 S), 9/18 (60 NE - 75 SW), 9/19 (62 NE - 83 W), 9/20 (62 NE - 78 S), 9/21 (59 NE - 76 SW). Week Two Forecast, 9/22 - 9/28: Considerable uncertainty exists in regards to temperatures and frost chances this forecast period. Models have currently moved away from a wet forecast towards a dry forecast. Because of this shift, slightly warmer conditions are now indicated, but these same models continue to back the idea that frost/freeze conditions could materialize across the Northern Plains or upper Midwest during the 9/24-9/25 period. For Nebraska, the greatest frost risk is currently assigned to North Central and Northeast Nebraska during the morning hours of 9/25 in response to a strong cold front sagging southward through the state on 9/24. Currently the models indicate that the front will have little moisture to work with, so nothing more than sprinkles are currently forecasted. If enough monsoon moisture is available, precipitation may be more widespread and significant. Otherwise, weather models indicate dry conditions and excellent harvest conditions. High Temperatures: 9/22 (60 NE - 68 W), 9/23 (75 E - 83 SW), 9/24 (55 N - 67' S), 9/25 (50 NE - 65 W), 9/26 (64 NE - 75' W), 9/27 (74 NE -83 W), 9/28 (80 NE - 90 W).

Nebraska Weather and Crop Report Agricultural Summary: For the week ending September 9, 2012, another week with little to no rain, temperatures in triple digits, and winds led to even drier conditions, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Producers are encouraged to stay on alert as fires during harvest have been reported. Dryland corn harvest continues to spread across the state while harvest of early planted irrigated fields has begun in some locations. Seed corn harvest is in full swing and high moisture corn was picked for feed lots. Soybean fields are turning color and maturing rapidly. Winter wheat fields that have been seeded into dry topsoil will need moisture for emergence. Harvest of proso millet continued. Cattle producers continue supplemental feeding livestock due to reduced forage supplies. Selling of cattle remains active due to high feed prices.

Weather Summary: Little to no precipitation fell during the week. Temperatures averaged 1-2 degrees above normal across the state. Highs reached triple digits and overnight lows fell to the mid 30’s. Field Crops Report: Corn in the dent stage reached 98 percent, ahead of 85 last year and 83 average. Corn mature reached 55 percent, compared to 7 last year and 17 days ahead of 13 average. Corn harvested for grain was 12 percent, compared to 1 last year and average. Corn conditions rated 22 percent very poor, 21 poor, 26 fair, 27 good, and 4 excellent, well below 76 percent good to excellent last year and 79 average. Irrigated corn conditions rated 51 percent good to excellent and dryland corn rated 3. Soybeans turning color were at 77 percent, compared to 31 last year and 11 days ahead of 44 Continued on page 11

Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Country Living

New Ways With Vegetables Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, Colfax County Vegetables are an economical, colorful and nutritious way to stretch your food dollar. Unfortunately, many people do not eat the minimum recommendation of five servings per day. There are lots of different vegetables, so if you are in a rut with the same vegetables day after day, try something new. Here are some hints to make those vegetables more appealing. Cauliflower is excellent raw or cooked. Full of fiber, this vegetable is good for snacks, appetizers, casseroles, and on its own. To preserve the white color when cooking, add one teaspoon of lemon juice to the water. Green and red cabbage is also full of fiber. When cooking red cabbage, add 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar; otherwise your red cabbage will turn purple. When cutting cabbage into wedges, leave about 1/4 inch of the core; it will hold the leaves together as they cook. To separate leaves from cabbage head to use for stuffed cabbage rolls, remove core, cover cabbage with boiling water, and let stand ten minutes. Remove leaves that have softened and repeat procedure. Carrots are a good source of vitamin A. Shredded carrots can be added to salads, casseroles, quick bread loaves, muffins, meatloaf, and cakes. One of my favorite gelatin salads involves shredded carrots and crushed pineapple.

Celery leaves are often thrown away when cut from the stalks. Instead of tossing, add the celery leaves to salads, soups, stuffings, casseroles, and garnishes. Jicama looks like a turnip and tastes like water chestnuts. After paring, jicama can be either served raw or cooked. Raw jicama can be used with dips or in salads. Jicama can be boiled, steamed, or pan-fried. Substitute jicama for water chestnuts. Try spaghetti squash with your favorite tomato sauce. If you’ve never tried spaghetti squash, the cooked squash (after removal from the shell) really does look like spaghetti. Cook sweet potatoes in their skins to retain nutrients since many nutrients of vegetables are just below the skin. After cooking, the skins slip off easily. Try baking fresh sweet potatoes for a change. Sweet potatoes do not need to be drowned in brown sugar and marshmallows and served only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. White or red potatoes should be cooked and served with the skins on to preserve nutrients. This includes hash browns, fried potatoes and mashed potatoes. Yes, this means that the mashed potatoes will have lumps. There is nothing wrong with lumpy potatoes other than the fact that the potatoes may look different than we are accustomed. Plus, not paring the potatoes is a time saver.

Stress and Farm Families Susan Hansen, Extension Educator, Colfax County The financial stress facing many Nebraska farm and ranch families is affecting the rural non-farm community as well. Whether farm or non-farm, many find it difficult to admit they suffer stress overload. For some families, the stress is short term but manageable in the long run. Other families are in need of crisis intervention. Stress has become a catch-all term to describe events or circumstances that make us feel angry or tense. Stress can be caused by events over which we have no control or by the small aggravations and frustrations of day to day life. Stress is not really the problem - it is how we interpret and react to whatever has happened. Each of us deals with stress in our own way. There are positive ways to deal with stress and negative ways to deal with stress. Choosing not to deal with stress is a negative reaction. There are psychological warnings of high stress as well as physical signs that stress is a major problem and is affecting family life and well-being. Some of the psychological warnings of high stress are blaming others, increased use of alcohol or other drugs, difficulty in concentration, excessive worrying, reference to suicide, insomnia, feeling worthless, loneliness, irritability, and confusion. There are many other signs as well. Physical problems which may be stress related include headaches, insomnia, fatigue, overeating or loss of appetite, constipation or diarrhea, indigestion, lower back pain, nausea, low grade infections, high blood pressure, and aching muscles. Stress management is a decision-making process. There are three major ways to deal with stress - alter it, avoid it, or accept it. Altering means removing the sources of stress. Avoiding means removing yourself from the stressful situation. Neither of these options are easy to do in a farm and ranch situation.

Accepting life’s stresses by equipping yourself physically and mentally through building resistance and changing perception of the stressor can help you cope. Build resistance by developing and maintaining your physical health, mental health, social health and spiritual health. Change perception by stopping negative thinking and conversations and replacing them with positive thoughts. What can you do if you are not the one facing crisis but you want to help? Recognizing symptoms and dealing with the cause can be difficult and frustrating. The person or family experiencing extreme stress may not be willing to admit that there is a problem or if they admit that there is a problem, they may not want to positively deal with the problem. So what can be done to help families in need? First of all, empathize with them and offer emotional support. They need to know that someone is listening to them and that someone cares. Let them know that it is okay to feel angry, anxious and to grieve a loss, whatever that loss happens to be - income, family communication, change in lifestyle. Understand their reality. What threatens or worries the farm or ranch family is very real to them. As the helper, you may not see the same significance but don’t downplay the worry. Try to imagine yourself in their shoes you may get a different perspective. Once again, listening is one of the best things to do. Remember, listening does not mean giving advice. Listening means listening with your ears and eyes. In other words, watch the nonverbal messages being sent in addition to what you are hearing. Always express hope. Be realistic and don’t downplay the seriousness of the situation but look at the strengths and potential of the individual and the family. Offer options for help. Perhaps it is counseling that is needed. In that case, refer the individual or family to a helping group or a qualified counselor.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • Yo u D o n ’ t S a y by Lee Pitts

Here are some things you never want to hear your veterinarian say: “I wish my hands would quit shaking before I operate on your $1,000,000 stud.” “It’s nothing that $500 in medicine won’t cure.” “Of course this operation is necessary. I have three kids in college.” “We got the results back on semen testing your famous stallion. Did I mention we’re running a monthly special on gelding.” “Have you, or any members of your family, noticed any small vesicles in your mouth or on the bottom of your feet?” “The vaccine salesman never told me it did THAT when they tested it on rats.” “I suppose you’re aware I’ll have to report this to the USDA?” “Do you have the tallow works phone number or should I get it for you?” “I’ll come as soon as I can get away.” “I know you’re just an intern but you’re going to have to start sometime. Why don’t you perform this delicate operation.” “How much did you say you paid for this animal? Well, at least it will make a nice little tax write off.”

“Boy, I sure hope my luck changes. I’m not having a very good week.” “We got the results back from all the tests we ran and I have good news and bad news. The good news is that we could find nothing wrong with your cow. The bad news is that the costs of the tests are more than five times what the old bitty is worth.” “I’ve never seen an animal react like that before.” “You do have a backhoe on the premises, if I recall correctly from my last visit.” “It’s a good thing this cow is papered and registered. That will make it easier for the government vets to track down all her relatives. You don’t have too much of her blood in your herd, I hope?” “I’m afraid I’m going to have to put it down.” (Unless, of course, he’s just holding your border collie and his arms are tired.) “I vividly remember seeing something like this back in vet school. If I recall correctly it was in autopsy class.” “I think my arm is stuck.” “Would you mind if we ran those last 500 cows through the chute again? I seem to have lost my wedding ring.”

“There seems to be some confusion as to the correct ear tag number of that bull you wanted me to castrate.” “You should have called me sooner.” “Let me put it this way: I sure hope you bought livestock mortality insurance.” “You are aware that I also buy hides?” “The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta called. It seems that one of your slaughter cows was recently selected to be pulled from the slaughter run at a processing plant in Peoria. I need to ask you a few questions. Have any of your cows been to Great Britain during the last 20 years? Have you imported any cows from Europe or taken a family vacation there? Are any of your other cows acting a bit crazy lately? Or more so than usual, I should say. Are you cooking your hamburgers to well done? When would be a good time to “depopulate” your herd?” “So I made a little mistake. It happens to all of us sooner or later.” “It looks like I may be running a little late. And the number one thing you never want to hear your vet say... “Open.”

Working Together on a Nebraska Solution in Health Care by Senator Ben Nelson Omaha Office 7502 Pacific St.,Suite 205 Omaha, NE 68114 Phone: (402) 391-3411 Fax: (402) 391-4725

Just about a year ago, Nebraskans packed into gymnasiums and meeting halls and made their voices heard on the Keystone pipeline project, and these public hearings in Nebraska and Washington led to an important change. Nebraskans made sure that the State stepped forward and took responsibility for determining a safe and acceptable route, and that process is moving ahead today. We developed a Nebraska solution to a Nebraska problem. Nebraskans Can Speak Out Now, we have another opportunity to find a Nebraska solution to a problem that affects us all, the cost and availability of health care. Nebraskans can make their voices heard by attending public hearings that the State convened to discuss a state health insurance exchange as part of the health reform law. Upcoming meetings will be in Lincoln on September 4th and 6th, and in Omaha on the 10th and South Sioux City on the 12th. Some have played politics with whether the state should set up a state-based insurance exchange, apparently because they are upset with what they think the law will do based on partisan talking points we've heard for two years.

small businesses can pick and choose which one meets their needs and budgets best. Since my days as governor I've always backed states' rights. Because of that, when Washington was debating health reform, I pushed for statebased exchanges and opposed the national exchange the U.S. House approved in its health State Insurance Department reform bill. Today, states have the power to set up Supports State-Based Exchange Last year the state insurance department issued their own exchanges, or join together in a regional a report, Health Insurance Exchange Planning exchange, but if they don't the feds will do it.

On page 18 it recommends: "If (health reform) is found to be A State Insurance Exchange Constitutional, NDOI recommends that the Avoids a Government Takeover A state-written, state-run, state-based exchange Health Insurance Exchange be housed as a would be better a option than handing over division of NDOI." They went on to explain why: the state's authority to Washington bureaucrats. A state insurance department has the institutional insurance exchange could help 50,000 Nebraskans knowledge of the state's insurance market to make receive health insurance and gain health security. it succeed; it has the relationships with federal That, in turn will reduce costs to Nebraskans who partners to build one; and creating a new agency now have insurance and pay for everyone who would put the project on hold and cause the federal doesn't. A Nebraska solution will benefit everyone. You know, it would be unfortunate if Nebraska government to take over. While some may disagree with the decision, the doesn't set up a state health insurance exchange.

State health government takeover of health reform will have insurance exchanges are supposed to be like a helped make sure there is one. clearinghouse where private insurance companies will offer a variety of plans and individuals and It seems Nebraskans could use these public hearings to express their views and to say whether they agree with the Nebraska Department of Insurance that supports creating a state insurance exchange.

An Update on Preschool Through College Eductaion in Nebraska By Governor Dave Heineman Lincoln Office/State Capitol P.O. Box 94848 Lincoln, NE 68509-4848 Phone: 402-471-2244 Fax: 402-471-6031

In 2009, Nebraska reorganized its preschool through college (P-16) initiative to strengthen the education that we provide to Nebraska students. As good as Nebraska’s education is now; it needs to be even better in the future. As Governor, I chair the P-16 Initiative and the Co-Chairs are State Senator Greg Adams, Chair of the Legislature’s Education Committee, Commissioner of Education Roger Breed, University of Nebraska President J.B. Milliken and President and CEO of Education Quest Foundation Liz Koop. The eight goals of the P-16 Initiative are as follows: •Adopt a college and career preparation core curriculum that requires four years of English and three years each of math, science and social studies in Nebraska school districts by the 20142015 school year. •Eliminate the academic achievement gap between Nebraska’s K-12 Caucasian students and its African American, Hispanic, and Native American students. •Develop an effective longitudinal data system which provides information on the Nebraska educational system from preschool through post-

graduate degree attainment and entry into the workforce to help align resources with strategic goals. •Attain a high school graduation rate of 90 percent or higher in every Nebraska high school. •Improve Nebraska’s college-going rank to the Top 10 tier nationally. •Provide affordable access for Nebraska students to attend Nebraska’s postsecondary institutions. •Improve time to degree completion and increase graduation rates of Nebraska’s postsecondary institutions. •Provide all students with the science, technology and math skills to succeed in postsecondary education and the 21st Century workforce. The State Board of Education has already approved increased high school graduation requirements. The Department of Education, the University of Nebraska, our State Colleges and our Community Colleges are working together to develop more effective data systems. The University of Nebraska and Nebraska’s State Colleges have revised their curriculum requirements so that students in most majors can

graduate in four years with 120 credit hours. Much of higher education had 128-135 credit hours required for graduation with the exception of those programs where accreditation requires more hours. Currently, Nebraska’s high school graduation rate is approximately 86 percent, which puts us in the top 10 states for graduation rate. Our goal is 90 percent. These goals are designed to work together to improve the academic achievement of our students. Nebraska is now conducting statewide assessments in reading, writing, mathematics and science. This allows the state to partner with local districts to fairly compare the test results, to share best practices among school districts, and to develop individual, strategic school district plans to improve the academic success of Nebraska students. We are encouraged by the focus on academic achievement by Nebraska’s school districts. We will continue that focus in the future and we are working to strengthen the coordination and cooperation between K-12 and higher education.

The Wrong Prescription for Rural Nebraska by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

My August travels throughout the state included meetings with doctors and hospital administrators who are bracing for major changes in the way they operate as a result of President Obama’s health care law. Unfortunately, the facts tell us rural Nebraska health care is likely to take a very hard hit from the law. In our rural communities, access to health services is already limited. Every cut slices deeper and every regulation weighs heavier, hurting health care providers and the patients they serve. That’s why the law’s cuts to Medicare reimbursement rates is of great concern in rural Nebraska. A report by Medicare’s chief actuary states that because of cuts in the law, “Medicare and Medicaid payment rates for inpatient hospital services would both represent roughly 39 percent of the average level for private insurance.” That means a hospital treating someone on Medicare or Medicaid will be reimbursed less than half the amount they’ll receive when treating someone with private insurance. The report also predicts that under these rates, 40 percent of providers would become unprofitable in the years ahead. The

alternative will be to limit or stop accepting Medicare and Medicaid patients. The law also cuts Medicare Advantage by $308 billion. This could prompt plan providers to move out of rural areas, limiting options for nearly 30,000 Nebraskans enrolled in this program, many of whom will not be able to keep their current coverage. Medicare home health programs are facing $66 billion in reductions—another setback for rural Nebraska, where serving patients in the comfort of their own home is a monumental task. Health care providers often travel many miles to treat patients, requiring added time and resources in transportation alone. As these services become less available, patients may have to seek care in nursing homes, which are already facing $39 billion in cuts as a result of the law. Overall, the Medicare cuts in the health care law total more than $700 billion, which is spent on new entitlements. You simply cannot claim the law protects seniors’ benefits when it threatens the very care they rely upon. While the law cuts funding for major health care programs, it brings in millions more new patients,

asking doctors to do much more with much less. Rural areas are already facing doctor shortages. Twenty percent of the nation’s population lives in rural America, but only nine percent of physicians practice here. Our rural health care providers are already stretched thin. If you think you have trouble finding a doctor today, just wait until the law is in full effect. Rural America is facing less funding and fewer doctors who must travel more miles to serve more patients. The math doesn’t add up to better outcomes for patients and providers. To top it off, families, farms, ranches and other small businesses that serve as the engine of job creation will face a sharp tax increase under the health care law. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects $1 trillion in new taxes from 2013 to 2022. Employers who cannot afford their workers’ health premiums will face penalty taxes of up to $2,000 per full-time employee. These looming realities are causing great concern across the country – especially in rural communities. Clearly, President Obama’s health care law is not the right prescription for rural Nebraska.

Symposium Shows FDG Gypsum Offers Many Soil Quality Benefits Arcadia, IN, Sept. 7, 2012 - As one of several speakers at the recent Midwest Soil Improvement Symposium, Indiana farmer Jack Maloney recounted that he started applying synthetic gypsum on his corn and soybean fields 11 years ago at the urging of his agronomist. The agronomist had seen tight clay soils like Maloney’s become softer and more permeable to rain water after two or three applications of gypsum. “Now we can take a two-inch rain and not pond,” said Maloney. “The water infiltration is phenomenal. And it helps structure the soil.” The Midwest Soil Improvement Symposium: Research and Practical Insights into Using Gypsum was held August 21, 2012, at Rulon Enterprises, a family farm operation in Arcadia, IN. The Rulon operation is managed by Ken, Rodney and Roy Rulon, and Roy’s sons Nick and Neal. In addition to Rulon Enterprises, the Conservation Technology Information Center and the GYPSOIL Division of Beneficial Reuse Management sponsored the symposium. Symposium host Rodney Rulon says gypsum helps “supercharge” his family’s no-till cropping system. The Rulons began applying gypsum seven years ago to problem fields where persistent wet spots delayed fieldwork and reduced yield. After seeing changes in the soil’s physical properties resulting in quicker drying and

better crop results, applications of 1 to 1.5 tons gypsum per acre became a staple across their entire 5,900-acre system. "We’re using it to build soil structure and healthy no-till soils,” explained Rulon. At the one-day symposium, university and USDA researchers, industry experts, crop consultants, and experienced growers presented sessions on the impact of using gypsum on crop production, soil and water quality, water infiltration, erosion, runoff, and nutrient loss. Field demonstrations of gypsum application equipment and soil physical properties were also part of the program. Approximately 150 researchers, crop consultants and growers attended. Banking moisture Maloney, who operates a 2,600-acre no-till farm based in Brownsburg, IN, has observed dramatic differences between his fields and neighboring conventional fields during wet years, as well as dry years such as 2008 and this past season. “Our crop stays green where the others are fired up,” he said. Panelist Cameron Mills, a grower from Walton, IN, who has used gypsum on sections of his 3,500-acre farm for the past three years, also sees differences in crop reaction to moisture stress. “We’ve got some fields where we have not spread gypsum yet, versus the ones where we have applied, and you can

definitely see the difference this year in our crops,” said Mills. USDA research indicates that gypsum helps soil absorb more water and hold onto it for use later in the growing season. That improves crop yield, especially in no-tilled fields, according to Dr. Allen Torbert, lead researcher at the USDA’s National Soil Dynamics Laboratory in Auburn, AL, where several gypsum trials are underway. “Gypsum improves soil physical properties. It improves aggregation, increases water infiltration, reduces runoff, improves waterholding capacity, and reduces erosion losses and nutrient losses,” Torbert said. Better aggregation Gypsum contains soluble calcium, which counteracts sodium and magnesium, and helps improve soil particle aggregation, according to Dr. Jerry Bigham, professor emeritus, School of Environment and Natural Resources, Ohio State University. Clay-type soils in the Midwest often have high concentrations of magnesium, particularly soils historically treated with high-magnesium limestone, he said. Without remediation with calcium, clay soil particles act like a “house of cards,” Bigham Continued on page 10

Corn trade started the week soft, and stayed soft after a disappointing WASDE report. Through Wednesday corn trade is 30 lower. The outside markets may provide more spillover after the late week Fed decision. Harvest pressure is starting to get rolling with more corn coming in, and quality concerns encouraging farmers to turn grain over. On the chart December futures have support in the $7.59 area which was today’s lows, and resistance will be at $7.95 at the moment. Corn harvest will likely be slowed by the rain system working through this week. Ethanol production is expected to remain at lower levels as driving season has ended. Export inspections were 9.75 million bushels which is a pretty low level for this time of year. Crop conditions stayed at 22% good to excellent and poor to very poor at 52%. Progress was listed at 93% dented, and 15% harvested, which is a record harvest pace. Yield reports remain variable. Quality issues will be around for a while. Exports were 216,000 metric tons, which was a slight increase week on week. On the WASDE report, yield was reduced .6 of a bushel to 122.8 BPA, production dropped slightly to 10.723 billion, and carryout was raised to 733 million from 650. This came from an increased carry in number from soft usage late in the crop year, and leaving the harvest acres unchanged for now. If you are debating your hedging strategy after this very nice upside run, or how to manage crop insurance give us a call to assist.

Wheat

Soybeans

Wheat trade bounced back from early week lows in post report action. The December contract weekly net changes are 15 lower in Chicago, 11 lower in KC and 7 lower in Minneapolis. Harvest complete and winter wheat is 5% in the ground with the forecasted rains expected to move things along the next two weeks. Chart wise the Chicago contract is back below the 10, 20, and 50-day moving averages, while KC and Minneapolis is above there. Spreads for higher protein wheat are starting to build. France captured most of the Egyptian tender this week, with a limited quantity of Black Sea origin. World cash prices are trending higher. Northern Hemisphere winter wheat will need significant rains to get a good stand with the US in line for rains, and Russia looking dry. The Australian government is starting to back down production estimates, and flooding may have damaged wheat in Argentina. Report wise, the USDA left things unchanged from last month; the stocks report will be more important at the end of the month. Exports were 381,800 metric tons, which was a little softer. Hedgers call with questions. Make sure you are looking at 2013 prices on this rally to start a program for next year.

Soybean trade started the week soft before rebounding after a friendly WASDE report. November beans are 9 higher on the week, and we have seen a 60 cent range. Meal is $4 higher, and oil is 17 points lower. On the chart, we have established support at $16.93, and resistance is at $17.65 for the moment. Crop conditions were improved to 32% good to excellent on Monday with poor to very poor down 1% at 36%. Soybeans were dropping leaves at a 36% rate, with 4% harvested which is a pretty quick pace. Harvest should take off this coming week. The WASDE report numbers were friendly with the carryin reduced by 15 million bushels; yield reduced by 1.5 bushels per acre, and harvested acres by 800,000. This reduced expected production to 2.634 billion bushels from 2.692. Export shipments were 12.9 million, which is decent seasonally. River flows have improved with the rain which should help barge traffic. Weekly export sales were improved at 570,000 metric tons of beans, 218,000 metric tons of meal, and 15,200 metric tons of oil. Argentina has good soil moisture to start, but it does not look like Brazil will be able to get off to an exceptionally good start to planting. Hedgers call with questions.

Fire Danger High as Farmers Begin Harvest Season Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent Continued hot, dry weather is posing a risk of wildfires as farmers take to the fields to begin harvesting this season's drought-impacted crops. Triple-digit temperatures " along with little or no precipitation" continue to deepen drought conditions throughout Nebraska, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Wednesday, September 5, firefighters had the wildfire in Dawes County 95 percent contained with no significant activity. An estimated total of 86,201 acres have been impacted by the Panhandle wildfires. Last year, Custer County was Nebraska's leading corn-producing county. On Wednesday, the National Weather Service had issued a red-flag warning in that area, which means low relative humidity combined with abnormally warm temperatures have made the area favorable for extreme fire growth. September started out like the rest of the summer with temperatures nearly 10 degrees above the 30-year average for this time of year and with continued dry conditions, according to the National Weather Service in Hastings. August was the sixth straight month of below-normal precipitation, since Jan. 1. According to the USDA, dryland corn harvest continues, while harvest of high-moisture corn and seed corn begins to pick up momentum. "Fire risk remains high with producers encouraged to monitor harvesting equipment,"

said the USDA's National Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Numerous drought-damaged cornfields have been chopped for silage or baled for hay. The USDA reported that dryland corn conditions were rated 3 percent good or excellent and irrigated corn was rated 50 percent good or excellent. Overall, corn conditions rated 43 percent poor or very poor, 27 percent fair and 30 percent good or excellent, compared to 76 percent good or excellent at this time last year. Seven percent of the state's corn crop has been harvested compared to zero last year. Corn maturity is 19 days ahead of average with 36 percent of the crop rated as mature. According to the National Weather Service in Hastings, the number of growing degree days, since Jan. 1, has been 1,446, which is 507 days ahead of the 30-year average. Growing degree days or heat units determine the rate of maturity for corn. Soybeans turning color, at 48 percent, were 11 days ahead of average, with 7 percent of the crop dropping leaves. Soybeans were rated 45 percent poor or very poor, 35 percent fair and 20 percent good or excellent. Sorghum was rated 49 percent poor or very poor, 37 percent fair and 14 percent good or excellent. The USDA reported that 95 percent of the state's pasture and rangeland was rated poor or very poor, causing problems for livestock producers who are continuing to provide supplemental feed for their cattle. Many producers, the USDA reported, are culling or marketing their livestock due to reduced forage supplies because of the drought.

Nine Cases of Disease Found in Nebraska Cattle Lincoln, NE - State Veterinarian Dr. Dennis Hughes of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture has confirmed nine cases of Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD) in cattle throughout Nebraska, according to the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. According to Hughes, the disease has been affecting Nebraska's deer population since the 1970s and is transmitted from deer to cattle by biting insects called midges. "This is an unfortunate disease that has no preventative measures or treatment options for affected cattle," said Hughes. "The extreme hot and dry conditions that have persisted across Nebraska have contributed to the number of cases we are experiencing. The first frost should eliminate the disease-spreading midges." EHD symptoms in cattle include: fever, anorexia, reduced milk production, swollen eyes, redness and scaling of the nose and lips, nasal and eye discharge, ulcers on mouth, excessive salivation, lameness, swelling of the tongue, oral/nasal blisters, and labored breathing. Producers with animals experiencing these symptoms are urged to contact their veterinarian immediately. "Because these cases aren't confined to a particular area, we have been receiving many questions from both producers and veterinarians across the state," Hughes said. "Therefore, we felt it necessary to share this basic disease information and urge producers to contact their local veterinarians if their animals are experiencing these symptoms."

WORLD MARKET MOVEMENT INDICATORS: WHEAT Continued from page 1 dollar, the more expensive the products are relative to other sellers in the market. As the United States recovers from the economic downturn, the dollar will strengthen, making the sale of U.S. goods more costly to other nations and thus more difficult. Case in point: The relative value the euro is weakening. This implies that the EU-27, a major wheat market competitor, will have a relatively less expensive product for sale and has a trade advantage. 2. Competitive Substitutes: Identifying alternatives to wheat is important. To varying degrees, other grains are wheat substitutes. For example, wheat is often substituted for corn in livestock rations in various countries around the world. As the price of corn rises, wheat becomes a cheaper alternative. USDA estimates this increase at 3.2 MMT (WASDE). However industry groups are optimistic that this is a conservative estimate. On the flip side, as prices of wheat rise, consumers of wheat will also be looking for alternative commodities. This is estimated to have a much smaller impact than corn. 3. Available Wheat Supplies: Supplies are measured in several different ways, such as carry

over, stock-to-use ratio, and ending stocks. The important point here is that as the supply of wheat decreases, the price will probably increase. The United States is fortunate that this year drought conditions did not severely damage the U.S. wheat crop. However, Russia has not been as fortunate and has seen a decline in production resulting in decreased supplies and increasing prices. The current high wheat prices and record high corn prices influence marketing and production decisions. High prices increase the incentive for producers to sell their product. This potentially reduces stocks into the coming years. With both corn and wheat having high prices, the issue becomes how much of each will be planted. This is tracked by USDA, which publishes a monthly Wheat Outlook report that estimates supplies and ending stocks. 4. Competitor Production Area News: Knowing what is happening around the world in the major wheat growing and consuming countries is key to understanding potential market movements. Part of what makes wheat an interesting market is that some of the world’s leading wheat producers, China and India, are not

significant exporters as they use their own production. Russia, another large producer, is an inconsistent exporter. In 2010-11 Russia only exported 3.9 MMT, compared to 21.3 MMT traded in 2011-12. The Aug. 10 WASDE report estimated Russian production down 6 MMT from previous estimates. This report also lowered expected exports from Russia by 4 MMT. Uncertainty of export volume creates volatility in the market. Some other developing news in the wheat market is the dismantling of the Canadian Wheat Board, the marketing and pricing monopoly that controlled Canada’s wheat market until Aug. 1, 2012. Canadian producers now have the ability to market their wheat freely and are no long required to sell the Canadian Wheat Board. This change to a free market may cause some temporary volatility in the market. These are only some of the factors in today’s market. Being aware of what the market is doing makes it possible to make more informed marketing and production decisions. At the end of the day it is all about buying low and selling high.

SYMPOSIUM SHOWS FDG GYPSUM OFFERS MANY SOIL QUALITY BENEFITS Continued from page 7

FGD gypsum Gypsum, or calcium sulfate dihydrate, has been used for centuries, and was promoted by Benjamin Franklin and George Washington. Colonial crop growers observed fields that were green and lush when mined gypsum or “land plaster” was applied, said Dr. Warren Dick, a long-time gypsum researcher and professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources, Ohio State University. The cost of mining and shipping gypsum to crop producers, however, caused agricultural use of gypsum to dwindle over time except for on high value crops like potatoes, tomatoes and peanuts.

But thanks to the 1990 Clean Air Amendments, there is a new supply of high quality and lower cost synthetic gypsum available called flue gas desulfurization gypsum or FGD gypsum. FGD gypsum is produced as a byproduct by wet scrubbing systems used to clean emissions at certain coal-fired utilities. FGD gypsum contains 20 percent soluble calcium or about 400 lbs./ton and 16 percent sulfate sulfur or about 320 lbs./ton, explained Ron Chamberlain, agronomist and director of gypsum programs for GYPSOIL/Beneficial Reuse Management. It has the same basic chemical composition as mined gypsum but at significantly lower cost. FGD supplies are becoming more widely available as more scrubbers come online, noted Chamberlain. GYPSOIL serves as a liaison between utilities and growers, and has developed a network of distributors throughout the Midwest, Mid-south and Southeast. “Typically, FGD gypsum is about 10-12 percent moisture, and can be applied using a truck or pull-type litter or lime spreaders,” Chamberlain said. “Gypsum does not affect pH. It’s a neutral molecule so it’s not a liming agent.” FGD gypsum is regulated on a state-by-state basis as a byproduct and it has been shown to be free of contaminants in repeated analyses, said Chamberlain. Sulfur depletion University of Illinois soil fertility and plant nutrition specialist Dr. Fabian Fernandez outlined his work studying sulfur response in corn. He said sulfur deficiency has increased across the Midwest in recent years because less sulfur is being deposited from the atmosphere as a result of emissions

regulations. In addition, high producing crops have greater removal rates, Fernandez said. While Fernandez has seen a response to added sulfur in some, but not all, Illinois trials, Dick presented several research reports that showed significant yield responses in alfalfa and corn when gypsum was used as a sulfur source. “Gypsum puts an abundance of sulfur out there,” Rulon commented. “Deficiencies kind of become a non-issue.” “We have done tissue tests in the last year and the sulfur was at the top of the charts on the tissue samples,” Maloney agreed. Water quality Beyond the crop benefits, the impact of using gypsum on agricultural soils to improve water quality offers many potential environmental benefits. Norton showed several examples of gypsum’s positive impact on runoff, erosion and soluble phosphorus loss. Joe Nester, a crop consultant from Bryan, OH, recalled seeing a 2002 experiment by Norton showing gypsum-treated soil vs. untreated soil in both untilled and tilled sections. Nester showed a picture of a water collection bottle from the untreated soil that was filled with cloudy, sediment-loaded runoff. That signals environmental risks and a waste of money, he said. “Where are the nutrients?” he asked. “They’d better be going into the crop. If not, you are wasting money.” “Where erosion and runoff are a problem, you can almost bet you’re going to be able to get a benefit from adding gypsum…no matter what the tillage system,” Norton said.

explained. “There is a natural tendency for those particles to fly apart or disperse.” When dispersion occurs, soils are prone to compaction and crusting, which contributes to faltering plant emergence and poor rooting. By contrast, strong, well-aggregated soil particles, surrounded by defined pores, are what make up ideal soil structure. “We need large pores that can receive and transmit water during times of excess, and we need small pores that can hold water by capillary action during times when we have (moisture) stress,” Bigham said. Improved soil quality enhances soil biology, emphasized Maloney in his remarks. “It makes that ground sweeter,” he said. “We have a ton of earthworms out there working for us.” Gypsum also contributes to optimal root growth. “We can get 10 times more surface area of the root by adding a soluble calcium source. This can make a difference to carry the crop over until the next rainfall event,” said Dr. Darrell Norton, a soil scientist recently retired from the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s National Soil Erosion Laboratory in West Lafayette, IN.

CNPPID Officials Study Irrigation Options Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub Holdrege, NE - As the 2012 irrigation season wraps up, Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District CNPPID officials now will focus on the potential water supply for 2013. CNPPID Irrigation Division Manager Dave Ford said the board's irrigation committee will meet Sept. 14 and the issue will be discussed at the committee meeting of the board on Sept. 21. He expects recommendations for 2013 deliveries to be considered at the Oct. 1 board meeting. Ford told the Hub the options are a full delivery or some allocation. During drought years in the past decade, CNPPID set irrigation allocations at 6.7 and 8.4 inches per acre to preserve water stored in Lake McConaughy. The length of the irrigation season also may be determined in October, Ford said, and using a supply canal drawdown as the water source at the end of the 2013 irrigation season will be considered. "The concern is if we go forward [with a full delivery] and have two or three more dry years," he said. The future water supply already has been discussed with Central Water Users leaders. Tim Anderson, a public relations adviser to CNPPID, said that also was a concern expressed by irrigators who visited CNPPID's booth at the Nebraska State Fair. In both cases, irrigators said they'd rather have allocations in 2013 than no water in future years. CNPPID civil engineer Cory Steinke reported at Monday's board meeting in Holdrege that Lake McConaughy now holds 947,000 acre-feet (a-f) of water, which is about 54 percent of a full volume. He said the lake elevation dropped one foot in the past week, and he expects it to decline another 1.5 feet. Inflows of 446 cubic feet per second (cfs) are dwarfed by releases of 1,700-1,800 cfs. Steinke expects some increase in inflows. "But we'll see how long that takes," he added.

NEBRASKA WEATHER AND CROP REPORT Continued from page 2

Some outflows are from a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-managed environmental account stored in the lake and released to enhance downstream Platte River flows to benefit critical habitat for threatened and endangered species. Steinke said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials want to "pre-wet the system before the whooping cranes come through." That's necessary because there will be no lake releases from Oct. 1-Nov. 15 to accommodate an every-five-year Federal Energy Regulatory Commission inspection of the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) system. NPPD uses water stored in Lake McConaughy for irrigation, hydropower production and cooling water for the coal-fired Gerald Gentleman Station near Sutherland. During that down time, Steinke said, CNPPID will work on the Kingsley Hydro and other parts of its system while access areas are dry. Meanwhile, he'll drop water levels at Johnson Lake by three to four feet this week to make space for water during a J-2 hydropower plant outage for an annual inspection. Engineering Services Manager Eric Hixon reported Monday that a similar inspection was completed last week on J-1, with no surprises. Ford and Steinke said 500,000-600,000 a-f of water were released from Lake McConaughy this irrigation season. About 200,000 a-f was diverted into CNPPID canals. The rest was water for NPPD and other irrigation districts and for the environmental account. Ford said it's estimated that CNPPID irrigators will have used an average of just more than 10 inches per acre this summer, but a more precise number will be reported at the October board meeting. He added it has been a challenging year to control aquatic vegetation throughout the water delivery system. "It probably was as bad as we've seen for a long, long time, if not forever," Ford said, explaining that early warm temperatures gave plants a head start. The summer heat and warm water allowed the plants to continue to thrive.

HEARTLAND CATTLEMAN Dedicated to the Livestock Industry

UNL Exhibit Shows Strength of Beef Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent This has been a rough year for Nebraska cattle producers. Drought has decimated pastures and caused supplemental feed costs to skyrocket. While there are many challenges, the University of NebraskaLincoln Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) team of experts is working to find ways to help producers meet those challenges. "Strengthening the State of Beef" was the theme for the institute's exhibits at this year's Husker Harvest Days show. This is the fifth year that IANR teaching, research and extension exhibits at Husker Harvest Days have focused on a specific area of importance that is relevant to all Nebraskans. Visitors to the Husker Red exhibit building seen lots of ways IANR and UNL Extension are working to strengthen the state's beef industry. Key exhibit areas focus on the economic impact of beef in Nebraska, the state's single largest industry with a $12.1 billion annual economic impact; UNL's global leadership in beef breeding practices; reproduction and proper management of prenatal nutrition to improve calf health and lifelong performance of the animal; and innovative pasture and forage management to improve herd performance and profitability while sustaining the health and value of grasslands and rangelands. "We themed it beef, but what we really are trying to do is educate people on what the

university is doing, researchwise and Extensionwise, for the livestock industry," said Steve Ress of the UNL Nebraska Water Center, who coordinates the UNL Husker Harvest Days exhibit. Ress said the livestock industry "probably has had to field some of the worst effects of the drought." "What we want to be able to show them is that there are resources available to them through the university to try to lessen those effects on their industry," Ress said. Grass is Nebraska's No. 1 crop, but this year's drought has driven pasture and range conditions to 97 percent poor or very poor and 3 percent fair. Last year, 71 percent of the state's grass resource was rated good or excellent. That has forced cattle producers to sell off their herds because of the high cost of supplemental feeding due to high feed costs. At their Husker Harvest Days exhibit, there was a booth that provided producers information about a one-stop website for "timely, unbiased information to manage through drought." That website is droughtresources.unl.edu. This year, UNL and other land-grant universities across the country are celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act. UNL will be celebrating with a week of activities Sept. 23-29. The Morrill Act created land-grant universities, making education more affordable to all people, educating them in agriculture, home economics, mechanical arts and other professions practical at the time of its passage in 1862. The Morrill Act successfully opened higher education to

Americans who previously could not afford to go to college. "Part of the 150th anniversary celebration is our opportunity to remind ourselves and the state that we are a land grant institution and we want to stay close to those roots," Ress said. Over the years, nonbiased research from UNL has helped Nebraska reach the point where it was the nation's leader in cattle slaughter last year at 6.85 million head and No. 2 in the nation, as of Jan. 1, in the total number of cattle and calves at 6.450 million head and in cattle on feed, at 2.65 million head. That UNL research was on display at Husker Harvest Days as UNL researchers were demonstrating new cuts of beef that have been developed at UNL to enhance the value of the cattle produced, fed, slaughtered and processed in Nebraska. "One out of every five steaks comes from Nebraska," Ress said. "It is a huge multiplier for our economy." "It is what runs Nebraska and drives our economy," said Lindsay Chichester, extension educator from Richardson County. "It also tastes great and is good for you." Chichester said the exhibit was laid out to show the lifestyle of a beef animal. "We had everything from the economics involved to genetics and breeding, through pasture and forage, animal well-being, manure management and food safety," she said. "We are hoping to go through the whole life cycle of a beef animal and different aspects throughout the industry."

Lean hog has bounced back a bit this week on short covering action. The October contract is 250 higher on the week and has resistance at $73.10 for the near term, with support at 7035. Cash prices have continued to work lower with packers easily securing supplies and the futures starting to separate a bit on fund action. Pork is plentiful right now, but the weaker dollar and shrinking Asian hog herds should help exports, and retailers should be increasing pork features to cash in on better margins. The cooler trend should help carcass weight, but lower quality corn may limit gains. Hedgers call with questions.

Cattle prices have continued to firm this week. The October contract is 145 higher on the week, and the September feeder cattle are 140 higher.

Features and Benefits

18.4-34 New 10ply

•Produce consistent bales because the optional monitoring system displays the weight and estimated moisture of each bale. •Large capacity lets you work efficiently, thanks to the power windguard working in conjunction with pick-up tines to condition crop and move more material into the bale chamber. •Get the Vermeer Package -- a simple, ruggedly designed Super M baler with the Vermeer reputation for excellence. •Complete more bales per day by increasing baling speed and pick-up capacity, decreasing labor and time. •Clear blockages without getting off your tractor by simply reversing the rotation of the power windguard, which unplugs the pick-up. •See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.

F FA C r e e d

I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years. I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny. I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil. I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so--for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me. I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.

Nebraska Youth Beef Leadership Symposium Lincoln, Neb. — The Nebraska Youth Beef Leadership Symposium at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will offer two sessions this year in order to reach high school students earlier – one for freshman and sophomores and another for juniors and seniors. "This educational symposium will allow students to network with beef industry leaders and hear about innovative cattle production practices," said Dennis Brink, UNL animal science professor. The first session Nov. 2-3 will be geared toward freshman and sophomores and will give them an introduction to the beef industry – an overview, interaction with faculty about current research, meat science, beef quality assurance, marketing and an introduction to careers. They will also have an opportunity to work on a team project and do an infomercial about beef and the benefits of it in the diet. Concluding on Nov. 3, freshman and sophomores will attend a career panel and banquet along with the juniors and seniors who have just arrived for their session. Students will be able to meet with industry sponsors. The Nov. 3-5 session will be geared toward juniors and seniors and will follow the traditional route of NYBLS – more in-depth information about the beef industry, meat science, marketing and the opportunity to work with a professional chef. Teams will take in presentations, but also will have the opportunity to work with the chef to create a new beef dish using beef value cuts.

In addition, six $500 UNL College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources scholarships will be awarded to juniors and senior participants. For more information about the Nebraska Youth Beef Leadership Symposium, including a list of sponsors, or to register, visit its website. More information also is available by contacting Sara Ellicott at 402-624-8030, email sellicott2@unl.edu or Brink at 402-4726446, email dbrink1@unl.edu. Registration is $30 due by Oct. 1. Late registration is $50 by Oct. 19. Registration includes all materials, meals and lodging.

Nebraska Donor Establishes First-of-kind Endowment to Support Key FFA Program Indianapolis (National FFA Foundation) – A Nebraska business owner and former FFA member has established a major endowment to support the development of current and future FFA members. Through use of a revocable trust, the Ron Grapes Family Broadening Agriculture Experience Fund will provide grants that FFA members can use to successfully complete their required supervised agricultural experience. All FFA members are required to complete a supervised agricultural experience, a project they conceptualize with the help of their teachers that involves them either owning and operating an agricultural-based business, getting an agriculture-based job or internship or plan, and conduct an agriculture-related scientific experiment. This learn-by-doing project gives FFA members invaluable experience as they progress through their educational careers.

Grapes’ gift marks the first time in the 85year history of FFA that an endowment specifically supporting the organization’s supervised agricultural experience program has been established. Nebraska FFA members are first in line to receive financial assistance through the new fund, according to specifics of the endowment. Students with the least agricultural background and students living in urban communities are next, followed by students with an interest in production agriculture. The endowment must be fully funded and earn income for a full 12 months before the first scholarship is awarded. As a teenager, Grapes served as his FFA chapter’s vice president, competed in his state’s FFA meat judging contest and had the opportunity to attend Nebraska’s state FFA convention. Today, he is principal owner of Grapes Family Farms in Big Springs, Neb.

“With this gift, I wanted to help provide an educated voice for the future national and global discussions of agriculture,” he said. Grapes said his decision to support the FFA was easy because he personally knows the true impact the FFA can have on a young person’s life. “I want others to know how easy it was to capture my dreams for helping guide the lives of young people,” he said. “This endowment will perpetually fund dreams of students for generations — and I did it all through my estate.” The National FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization, which provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 540,379 student members in grades 7 through 12 who belong to one of 7,489 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Q: Why do your customers act like a bunch of animals? ☐ It’s the only way to get some service around here. ☐ They specifically asked for the mayo on the side. ☐ Because your soybeans’ most important customers are animals.

Sunday-Thursday 5:30am-10:00pm Friday and Saturday 5:30am-11:00pm

Your soybeans travel a lot farther than just the local grain elevator. Go to www.BeyondTheElevator.com to learn more about your number one customers AND your operation’s profitability.
