Lori Potter, The Kearney Hub MINDEN -- A combine head attachment, calcium hydroxide, water and a bunker are a recipe that may give farmers more income from their cornfields and give cattle producers another feed option. "From a farmer-feeder standpoint, this is just an amazing opportunity, and you still have the corn as a

revenue source," Duane Kristensen said Thursday at a stover harvesting demonstration in his cornfield north of Minden. That opportunity starts with New Holland's Cornrower attachment for its 99C chopping corn head. The system catches stalk material under the corn head and windrows it. Inventor Jim Straeter, a New Holland dealer in Rochester, Ind.,

said, "It's all within the header. There's nothing different to do. It doesn't affect the combine at all." The attachment is manufactured by Craig Welding of Mentone, Ind., and will be in the New Holland price book next year. Straeter estimated the cost at $25,000 for an 8-row header and $30,000 to $31,000 for a 12-row header.

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Al Dutcher Report

Allen Dutcher

The first significant snowfall of the fall season occurred during the 10/4-10/5 period, with accumulations reported anywhere from a trace to six inches. Liquid equivalent moisture totals from this snow event were generally in the 0.25 to 0.50 inch range, which should provide enough moisture to germinate winter wheat. The cold air associated with this system brought hard freeze conditions to the entire state on the morning of 10/6, effectively ending what was left of this years’ growing season. An upper air low moved out of the southwestern U.S. during the 10/1110/12 time period, and scattered rain and thunderstorms brought welcome moisture to Nebraska. Outside of these two events, most locations failed to receive more than trace amounts of moisture as several systems crossed the Central Plains. The extended periods of dry weather allowed producers to harvest over 50% of the corn and soybean crop. In fact, as of 10/9, 67% of the corn crop had been harvested, along with over 75% of the soybean crop. Week One Forecast, 10/13 - 10/19: Current model forecasts indicate that our best precipitation chances during this period will occur on 10/13 as an upper air low that moved out of the southwestern U.S. will move north and east of Nebraska. It is possible that a few thunderstorms could develop across southeastern Nebraska during the first half of the day, but most locations will be north of the cold front and precipitation will be the result of moisture wrapping around the upper air low. Therefore, rainfall should end from west to east as the day progresses

and most locations will be fortunate to pick up a quarter inch of moisture. Dry weather is anticipated for the 1014-10/15 period as high pressure builds into the region from the western U.S. Another cold front will move through the state on 10/16, but the brunt of the cold air will remain east and north of the state. There is a chance that some light precipitation will develop along the cold front, but most locations will not likely see more than a few sprinkles with the northern one third of the state having the best chance for accumulating moisture. Dry weather returns for the 10/1710/18 period before another cold front moves southeast from the northern Plains during the later half of 10/19. Once again, light precipitation is possible across extreme northern Nebraska, with the brunt of accumulating moisture likely to occur on 10/20. High Temperatures: 10/13 (50 NW - 77 SE), 10/14 (55 E - 70 SW), 10/1510/16 (65 NE - 80 SW), 10/17-10/18 (45 NE - 65 SW), 10/19 (56 NE -76 SW). Week Two Forecast, 10/20 - 10/26: A cold front is projected by the models to slide southeastward through the state on 10/20 with little significant moisture expected. The bulk of the heavier moisture should remain north of the state, but accumulations could approach a quarter inch along the NebraskaSouth Dakota border, with totals decreasing to trace amounts along the Kansas-Nebraska border. The only other precipitation indicated during this forecast period occurs on 10/26 across southern Nebraska as moisture lifts northward from a weak upper air trough ejecting out of the southern Rockies. It should be noted that model runs from 10/510/8 were consistently developing a major storm system across the Central Plains on 10/22, only to switch to a dry forecast during the past couple of days. Therefore, considerable uncertainty exists in regards to eventual weather pattern that may develop during this forecast period. High Temperatures: 10/20 (52 N - 65 S), 10/21-10/22 (45 NE - 58 SW), 10/23 (52 NE - 62 W), 10/24 (57 NE - 70 SW), 10/25-10/26 (66 NE - 80 SW).

Nebraska Weather and Crops Report Agricultural Summary: For the week ending October 7, 2012, a killing frost over the weekend brought the growing season to an end, according to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. With the colder temperatures came the first snowfall in portions of the west. Corn harvest is two-thirds complete, one month ahead of average. Soybean harvest was over 70 percent complete, near two weeks ahead of average. Winter wheat seeding was over 80 percent complete. However, less than one-third of the winter wheat fields were emerged, 12 days behind average. Sorghum, proso millet, and dry bean harvests progressed. With 97 percent of the state’s pastures in poor or very poor condition, cattle were utilizing stalks. Producers continued seeking forage supplies to cover current and future needs. Weather Summary: Light precipitation in the form of snow and rain was received in the Panhandle and Southwest Districts with most amounts less than one half inch of moisture. Other areas of the state received little to no rain.

Temperatures averaged 9 to 11 degrees below normal across the state. Highs reached the low 90’s in the Southwest District but were mostly in the low to mid 80’s elsewhere. Lows dipped into the lower 20’s and upper teens. Field Crops Report: Corn mature reached 98 percent, well ahead of 84 last year and 81 average. Corn harvested for grain was 67 percent, compared to 17 last year and 30 days ahead of 17 average. Soybeans dropping leaves were 96 percent, compared to 91 last year and 93 average. Soybeans harvested were 71 percent, well ahead of 51 last year and 13 days ahead of 43 average. Soybean conditions rated 17 percent very poor, 28 poor, 35 fair, 17 good, and 3 excellent, well below last year’s 78 percent good to excellent and 77 average. Winter wheat seeded was at 81 percent, behind both 89 percent last year and average. Winter wheat emerged was 31 percent, well behind 67 percent last year and 62 average. Proso millet harvest was 89 percent complete, ahead of 77 last year and 76 average. Continued on page 7

Individual Ingredients Are Key To Success With Baked Goods Susan Hansen, University of Lincoln Extension, Colfax County

Nebraska-

During the baking process, it is easy to forget how important the function of individual ingredients are to the success of the recipe. However, keeping a few facts in mind will ensure a delicious result each time. The main ingredient in most baked goods is flour. Flour creates structure and provides protein to strengthen the dough. A high level of protein generally results in a tough finished product. Therefore, all-purpose flour is most commonly used because its medium protein content makes it adaptable to a variety of recipes. Sugar and salt are most commonly thought of as taste enhancers. Although this is true, it is important to remember they serve other important functions as well. Table sugar helps produce gases for raising yeast dough and contributes to a baked product’s tenderness and brown color. Salt works hand-in-hand with sugar during yeast fermentation and keeps the dough from rising too quickly. It also enhances other flavors within the finished product. Yeast commonly is used in homemade bread dough. This microorganism gives off carbon dioxide as it grows and multiplies, thus expanding dough over a given amount of time. However, yeast is not the only common leavening agent. Many quick recipes call for either baking soda or baking powder. Baking soda produces gas for leavening when combined with an acidic ingredient such as

vinegar. Baking powder is baking soda that already contains the right amount of acid needed to react and produce gas. Shortening, butter, margarine and oil all contribute to the overall quality of a product. Commonly called fats, these ingredients add tenderness, moisture and smoothness to baked goods. Fats contribute their own flavor and enhance those of other ingredients. A small amount of fat in yeast dough also will yield a loaf with greater volume due to its stretching effect on gluten. Eggs serve many functions in baking. They add flavor and color, contribute to structure, incorporate air into the product and provide liquid, fat and protein. The absence of egg yolks often will result in a tough product and omitting egg whites decreases volume. Although every ingredient serves a specific purpose, none could carry out their function without the presence of a liquid. As water is absorbed, chemical changes take place that are necessary for the development of structure and texture. Liquids also are needed to hydrate proteins, starches and leavening agents within a recipe. This process results in a moist product that has a favorable mouth feel. Milk is one of the most common liquids used in baking. It not only contributes water, but valuable nutrients as well. Milk also assists in the browning process and adds additional flavor. Some recipes call for juice. However, these are typically recipes that contain baking soda and require an acidic ingredient for the leavening process.

Lawn Winterizing Tips David Lott, Horticulture Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, North Platte As I mowed my yard this weekend, I couldn’t help but think about the jobs I needed to take care of in my lawn. There are several fall lawn care items that need to be taken care of now if they haven’t been already. Here are some simple reminders and steps to help finish up some winterizing projects around the lawn before it gets any cooler outside. Some of these winterizing chores may need to be completed sooner than others depending on quickly cold weather settles in. Draining Water Lines and Garden Hoses Now is the time to clear out sprinkler lines and garden hoses before they freeze and burst. Empty garden hoses by stretching them out in a straight line before coiling them up. The water will run out when the hose is coiled over the arm or on hose stand. Store the coiled hose in a place where ultraviolet rays will not break down the hose material. A dark corner of a garage or shed is a good place to store these for the winter. Sprinkler systems are set fairly shallow under the surface of the soil. While there is some protection from the weather, sprinkler lines can burst or be damaged when the ground freezes for the winter. First, if there is a shut-off valve, close it off. Next, run the sprinkler system’s zone to bleed off the lines. If you as a homeowner do not feel comfortable draining out the sprinkler system, contact a local professional to drain the system and blow out the lines. Mulching Fall Leaves Leaves are falling in earnest now, and it has been fun to watch children play in area yards. Outside of the fun, what do we do with all the leaves on the lawn? Collecting, bagging and removing leaves can be a very time-consuming process that is ongoing throughout the late fall. The wind also has an uncanny ability to

AG NEWS COMMODITIES myfarmandranch.com

blow the neighbor’s leaves into your yard! Instead of spending all that time and energy removing leaves, why not compost them with the help of the mower? First, check the mower blades to make sure they are sharp to help shred the leaves as fine as possible. Second, mow over the leaves when they are dry to help increase the ability to shred. Third, mow the lawn at its regular height using three or four slow passes to shred the leaves as fine as possible so they fall into the lawn, and do not cover the turf. Turfgrass will still need to have access to sunlight to continue photosynthesis and store carbohydrates to build a strong root system. The mulching process will probably need to be repeated to keep the lawn from being covered with leaves for the duration of the fall.

Final Step: Lawn Fertilization Cool season lawn turf such as bluegrass and fescue can be fertilized one last time before spring. This last fertilization will help boost the photosynthesis rate of the turf and build carbohydrate reserves in the plant to help lawns green up in the spring. Late fertilization can also help increase the lawn’s winter hardiness, root growth and the desirable, moderate shoot growth in the spring. Apply 1 to 1 ½ pounds of actual nitrogen per 1000 square feet of area to the lawn after the last mowing. Remember to check the fertilizer label to ensure that at least a full pound of nitrogen is applied, not just a pound of total fertilizer. Soluble fertilizers that contain urea or ammonium sulfate are desired in this application to help ensure that turf is receiving the nitrogen it needs as soon as possible. Avoid using slow-release, or water insoluble fertilizer. If you have any further questions about winterizing lawns, please contact your local University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension office.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts • Septic Superiority by Lee Pitts

I’m riding high as a kite these days because after Big Al pumped our septic tank, he said, “You have one of the most healthy septic tanks I’ve ever seen.” “I bet you say that to all your clients,” I blushed. But Big Al insisted that he’d never seen such a healthy septic environment, and he ought to know. I bet he’s drained 10,000 septic tanks in his 25 years as a septic superstar. I’m seriously thinking about writing my first-ever Christmas letter so I can tell all our friends the exciting news about our septic system. And I wish I’d get invited to a fancy dinner party with some hoity-toity folks so I could brag about our special septic system, or, as my sophisticated and politically correct friends might say, if I had any, my septic “ecosystem”. I’d wait until we were eating our main course to bring the subject up so I’d have everyone’s undivided attention. The jealous people I’ve told this great news all want to know how I achieved septic superiority. Quite frankly, I had no idea. We don’t buy any expensive additives we see advertised on infomercials, nor do we flush yeast down our commodes. And my wife’s cooking isn’t that bad. So the next time I saw Big Al in a social setting, at the hardware store, I asked him. “I bet you and Diane are meat eaters.”

“Of course we are. I’ve made a living off the beef industry for 40 years,” I said, “and if an incorrect rumor ever spread that I was a vegan I’d be in the poorhouse in two weeks. But what does that have to do with my septic tank?” “The most unhealthy septic systems and the ones that I see that are in real trouble belong to vegetarians,” said Big Al. “They don’t throw any charcoaled hamburger, meat scraps or old hot dogs in the garbage disposal, and meat promotes healthy bacteria growth that digests the contents of your septic system.” WOW! Here we have just one more reason to be a big meat eater, and one that I bet the beef checkoff folks have never thought of exploiting. My mind raced with ways we could use this new information to promote meat, especially beef. The problem becomes, how can we advertise this new advantage of eating meat without grossing everyone out? I suppose showing pictures of healthy and unhealthy septic systems sideby-side on television is out of the question, especially during dinner. The problem is that our audience is urban folks but they don’t have septic tanks, so our message would fall on deaf ears. So I think we need to encourage them to think of their stomachs as septic tanks which require healthy bacteria. In many ways the human stomach is just like a septic tank,

except the stomach costs less to pump and doesn’t need it as often. Can you imagine how unhealthy the sterile septic/stomachs of veg heads must be without any bacteria to digest all that fibrous asparagus they eat? Of course, we’ll need some testimonials and spokespersons. If there’s one Hollywood star out there whose personality just screams septic tanks I’d have to say it would be Larry the Cable Guy, but he’s making movie-star-wages, and I don’t know if he speaks to the right demographic. Big Al would be the perfect spokesperson, but based on the bill he handed me for pumping my septic ecosystem, he’s making even more money than Larry the Cable Guy. I doubt too that he’d have the proper spokesperson wardrobe because he usually wears a faded brown tee-shirt with his company’s motto printed on it, that I cannot quote here due to censorship issues. To exploit this exciting news we need to get all the cowboy poets working on catchy phrases such as: “Let’s be frank. Eat meat for your tank.” Or, “Beef: Dessert for your Septic Tank.” I also like “Beef: Peptic for your Septic.” You get the idea. We can use the same bumper stickers we have now, we’d just need to add a few words... “Beef: It’s what’s for dinner... in your septic tank.” Great idea, huh? Sometimes I amaze even myself!

Removing the Regulatory Barriers to American Energy by Congressman Adrian Smith Grand Island Office 1811 West Second Street, Suite 105 Grand Island, NE68803 Phone: (308) 384-3900 Fax: (308) 384-3902

Affordable energy is a necessary ingredient for long-term economic growth. Lower utility rates reduce overhead costs, leaving businesses more money to grow, add more employees, and reduce consumer prices. The less money families spend on their monthly power bill, the more money they have to save or spend as they wish – all of which contributes to economic growth. When the price of energy increases, however, businesses have less capital to expand and hire, and families have less disposable income to spend on goods and services. Even though the economy remains sluggish and many families continue struggling to pay their bills, the Obama Administration has sought regulations which would increase the costs of America’s most abundant and affordable forms of energy. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, for example, is a regulation which would drive up the cost of energy by arbitrarily requiring a 73 percent reduction in certain emissions from power plants between 2005 and 2014. The rule would cost the power sector $2.4 billion annually, which would be passed onto consumers in the form of higher rates. The House of Representatives passed the Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts

on the Nation Act in September of last year, which would, among other provisions, prevent the implementation and enforcement of this rule. The Senate and President never acted on this legislation, but a U.S. D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the rule last month after Nebraska and more than three dozen other states challenged the rule in court. The court’s decision is certainly a step in the right direction as we work to rein in overreaching agencies; however, we must continue pursuing regulatory reform to protect domestic energy production and grow our economy. One way to prevent agencies such as the EPA from imposing these major rules would be to enact the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny, or REINS Act. This legislation, which has already passed the House, would require major regulations (those with an annual economic impact of more than $100 million or more) to be approved by a stand-alone vote in Congress and signed by the President before they are enforced on businesses, agricultural producers, energy generation, local governments or families. Comprehensive regulatory reform would go a long way in helping produce more American energy at a lower cost, but we must also identify

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

and reverse new rules which unnecessarily hamper these goals. The House has passed more than a dozen bills to reduce red tape on energy development, exploration, and generation, most of which have not been considered by the Senate. Our latest effort in the House to stop onerous regulation on American energy was passing H.R. 3409, the Stop the War on Coal Act. This legislation would overturn politically motivated and burdensome regulations on the coal industry, which supplies much of Nebraska’s energy needs. The bill also would require agencies to consider the impact of new rules and regulations on jobs and the economy, which surprisingly, agencies such as the EPA are not currently required to do. This requirement would be a positive step toward balancing the need for clean air and water with economic growth and competitiveness. Congress must continue to overturn or modify the rules which unnecessarily threaten energy production and the broader economy, while also reforming the regulatory code and process. In doing so, we can responsibly take advantage of all of our domestic resources which would decrease the cost of energy, promote energy independence, create jobs and promote economic growth.

Nebraska’s Sons, Some Leave and Some Return by Senator Ben Nelson Omaha Office 7502 Pacific St.,Suite 205 Omaha, NE 68114 Phone: (402) 391-3411 Fax: (402) 391-4725

After the news finally soaked in that one of Nebraska’s most successful sons was retiring as Athletic Director at the University of NebraskaLincoln (UNL), I got to thinking about the impact Tom Osborne has had on Nebraska. After Tom graduated from Hastings College in 1959, he left Nebraska to play pro football. He played two seasons for the Washington Redskins and one season with the San Francisco 49ers. Then he returned to Nebraska to get advanced degrees at UNL. That’s when I first met Tom. We lived in the same Lincoln duplex and have been friends ever since. As I thought about Tom’s path in life, I began to wonder what Nebraska would be like today, had Tom not returned after playing ball in the NFL. Would there have been those national championships at UNL? Would there have been that steady guiding, hand in Congress for six years as Tom represented his state with honor and

Lincoln Office Federal Building, Room 287 100 Centennial Mall North Lincoln, NE 68508 Phone: (402) 441-4600 Fax: (402) 476-8753

distinction? How many at-risk children would have gone down the wrong road if not for TeamMates, the youth mentoring program that he founded? Would young Nebraskans have had a role model, someone who could play pro football, get a Ph.D., coach championship teams, serve in the United States Congress and continue the impressive growth of a top notch athletic department? Fortunately, Tom Osborne chose to return to Nebraska and as they say, the rest is history. But, we can learn from Tom’s path. We need to do everything in our power to educate our children and provide good jobs and economic growth to keep them here, or serve as a powerful magnet to bring them back if they do leave. As a former colleague, I want to express my deep appreciation for Tom Osborne’s distinguished service to Nebraska. Tom has done a magnificent job for our state, and set a winning tone for the

Washington Office 720 Hart Senate Office Building United States Senate Washington, D.C. 20510 Phone: (202) 224-6551 Fax: (202) 228-0012

University of Nebraska. Though Tom has had very different chapters in his life (in civil service, education and sports), they all had a common theme: giving back to Nebraska. Tom’s love of our state was seen in all he did, and we’ll miss him in more ways than one. I’m in awe of his job at UNL, his time in Congress, and also his career. He is a great leader that always impresses those around him with his professionalism, expertise and dedication to duty. Nebraska has been well-served by Tom, and I know that many Nebraskans are and will continue to be motivated by the legacy that he has built. On a personal note, thanks for coming back to us, Tom. Thanks for all you have done for Nebraska. Best wishes in your future, which I know includes some fishing, as well as something even closer to your heart, expanding TeamMates. This state wouldn’t be what it is without you. Go Huskers!

150 Years of Growing Innovations by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

It’s that time of year again when many of Nebraska’s farmers reap the fruits of their labor over the past growing season. However, this year, the drought has presented new challenges. Record temperatures and a lack of rain will likely yield a smaller harvest relative to recent years. Farmers and ranchers are resilient folks, able to weather whatever nature throws at them. And this year will be no different. Their work is becoming increasingly significant as they provide food, feed and fuel to a growing global population. The daunting task of providing sustenance to a world of more than seven billion people requires ag producers in places like Nebraska to become more efficient than ever before, even in the face of Mother Nature’s greatest challenges. Schools like the University of Nebraska (NU) are leading research efforts to help our farmers and ranchers meet these challenges. Last week the university celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act, which established the nation’s landgrant educational institutions. This landmark policy led to the creation of a network of colleges and universities across the country that still

provides innovative research to address today’s challenges. I joined three other former U.S. Secretaries of Agriculture Friday in Lincoln to discuss these challenges and what university research is doing to improve ag production. At the university’s Agriculture Research and Development Center near Mead, Neb., research is underway to develop drought-, pest- and diseaseresistant crops to combat changing environmental factors. The nearly 9,700-acre facility is also home to more than 7,000 head of livestock. Ag producers are able to apply ongoing science to their own operations through programs across the state, where they work directly with researchers to generate results in real-world settings. The discoveries and developments here will improve outcomes in fields and pastures in Nebraska and around the world. University research is helping to find new ways to produce more food with less water, an endeavor of growing importance during times of drought and for places with less-abundant water supplies. I recently visited the National Drought Mitigation Center in Lincoln, which has played an important

role in tracking the current drought conditions throughout America and suggesting adaptive techniques for drought-stricken farms and ranches. Ag research efforts are important to improve ag efficiency and manage risks before these risks become crises. And as harvest continues, Washington has a role to play in ensuring the ongoing successes of our farmers and ranchers. We have a responsibility to provide risk management tools to an industry where a single afternoon storm could mean the difference between a bountiful harvest and a dismal yield. That’s why it is so imperative that Congress pass a long-term farm bill with drought assistance for livestock producers and strengthened crop insurance. Just as Congress spurred research to generate innovations in agriculture 150 years ago, we must ensure producers have the risk management tools to effectively operate today. Our farmers and ranchers need the certainty of updated policy. And we all depend upon their success to provide food and energy for a growing world.

INNOVATION CREATES CATTLE FEED OPTION... Continued from page 1

The windrowed stover can be dried and baled. As demonstrated Thursday, it also can be stored like silage after adding water and calcium hydroxide, which beaks down cell walls to enhance feed digestibility. In addition to New Holland, demo participants were Monsanto, Mississippi Lime, and Chief Ethanol of Hastings, where Kristensen is general manager. Steve Petersen, end-use product manager for Monsanto Corn Product Management in Chelsea, Iowa, said Kristensen's field will average more than 250 bushels of corn per acre. Stover production has increased with yields, making it increasingly difficult for farmers to no-till or minimum-till plant the following spring. Petersen said the new process resolves that issue while giving farmers another cornfield co-product. Dry calcium hydroxide was applied immediately to the stover windrows at the Kristensen field. Petersen said it also can be applied using a bale grinder or in liquid form at the storage bunker. He added that farmers can get lime anywhere, but it must be the pure form of calcium hydroxide. "We're agnostic about it [treatment method]. We want all these things to work," Petersen said. "The growers and the feeders will develop better ways to do this. I'm convinced of that." Kristensen said he expects the harvesting system to become more efficient, perhaps by finding ways to apply calcium hydroxide with the combine. The treated stover process enhances moisture, which was at 32 percent in the demo windrows. After dry calcium hydroxide and water were applied, the stover was loaded onto trucks and added to a bunker pile at Kristensen's nearby feedyard. More water was applied to increase the moisture to 50 percent.

The stover project partners have worked with University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) researchers to test the process and the treated stover's feed qualities. Petersen said the heat -- up to 140 degrees -and moisture in the pile turns the feed green, like silage. It can be fed as soon as a week after storing, but he added that some has been stored in plastic bags for a year.

Harvested fields are left with enough stover for grazing. Kristensen plants rye into his fields to reduce soil erosion and also to provide another feed product that's ready in the early spring. Petersen said high corn prices have cattle producers looking for less expensive options per pound of gain. "This changes the way we look at a commodity, the way we feed cattle," he said. Researchers have found that treating stover enhances its digestibility from 40 percent to 60 percent or better, Petersen said, compared with 80 percent for corn. That means treated stover can replace some corn and hay in feed rations. Researcher-UNL graduate student Adam Shreck said feedlots typically mix 55 percent to

60 percent corn with 35 percent to 40 percent distillers grains, the co-product from ethanol processing. Treated stover may allow 35 percent to 40 percent each of corn and distillers grains, with 20 percent to 30 percent stover. Kristensen backgrounds calves before they go to feedlots and is feeding them about half-andhalf distillers grains and treated stover. Cows and calves grazing cornstalks may see the mix as a supplement. "On a cow carrying a calf over the winter, you need some additional inputs nutritionally," he said. Kristensen described stover as a local product that fits well with distillers grains in lowercost rations. Stover shouldn't be left in the field, he said, especially if treating it enhances its value. "In Nebraska, we graze only roughly half of our cornstalks," said Nebraska Corn Board Director of Research Kelly Brunkhorst. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Nebraska farmers planted 9.1 million acres of corn in 2012. Brunkhorst said there are areas with erodible soils and/or average yields of less than 156 bushels per acre where removing more stover won't work. Treated stover interests Kristensen and other ethanol plant managers beyond enhancing the critical relationship with livestock producers who buy distillers grains. He and Petersen said calcium hydroxide's ability to break down cell walls may have potential in cellulosic ethanol production of the future. Plus, producing corn, ethanol, distillers grains and stover from the same acres "really lowers the carbon footprint for overall sustainability," Kristensen said. "It's almost like a double-crop situation . . .," said farmer and KAAPA President Paul Kenney. "Stover is a crop. As long as we can keep up productivity and take the stover off, it's a great benefit to us."

Corn trade has ground lower in pre-report action as trade took a defensive approach Trade is 12 lower through Wednesday. Outside markets have been shaky, and substantial pressure has spilled over from soybeans, limiting early week upside. The chart has stayed sideways to lower with support at $7.33, and resistance at $7.54. Ethanol production has stayed at the lower side of the range, but margins are improving although still negative. Blender margins remain strong. Basis has continued to improve as it becomes more of a scramble to secure physical cash bushels. Corn harvest continues to move along rapidly and is now 69% complete. The corn export inspections slipped to 17.3 million, as fresh export business is hard to come by. Weekly export sales will be delayed until Friday. The USDA WASDE report came with a reduction in yield to 122 BPA per acre from 122.8 and carryout was down to 619 million bushels from 733 million. US production was pegged at 10.7 billion from 10.6 last month. Harvest acres went up by 1.1 million acres. World ending stocks were down to 117.23 million metric tons from 123.95 million metric tons. Trade has taken a friendly tone from these numbers. South American planting continues to progress, but it has been excessively wet in much of the full season corn growing areas.

Soybeans

Wheat trade has ground higher in early week action with favorable weather items buttressing trade. So far, Chicago is 12 cents higher on the week, KC is 15 higher, and Minneapolis is 14 higher. Winter wheat is 57% planted and 23% emerged, both a shade behind normal. Chart wise the Chicago contract is just below the 10, 20, and 50-day moving averages, as are Minneapolis and KC. Support is at $8.50 for now. Spreads for higher protein wheat widened a bit this week. European crop size estimates have shrank, and world cash prices continue to firm. Australia has been drier and may have some frost damage. Russia has caught some fall planting rains, but remains behind normal. The WASDE report lowered carryout to 654 million bushels with a 95 million bushel increase in wheat feeding, but a 50 million bushel cut in exports. World wheat stocks were reduced to 173 million metric tons, with production cuts in Australia accounting for most of the 3.7 million metric ton drop. Export inspections were soft at 13.5 million bushels. Hedgers call with questions. Make sure you are looking at 2013 prices on this rally to start a program for next year.

Soybean trade was flat to start the week, before pre-report liquidation surfaced on Wednesday. For the week, trade is 27 cents lower, but the reaction to the report will add more long term direction. Meal is $10 lower, and oil is 56 lower. On the chart, we have support at $15.04, and resistance is at $15.74 for the moment. Harvest pressure is starting to slip as US soybean harvest was listed at 58% complete as of this past weekend and should continue to move along quickly. Funds continue to hand over ownership to the commercials in pre-report trade, and China has remained very active in sourcing cargos. The WASDE report raised soybean yield to 37.8 BPA from 35.1, and production was raised to 2.86 billion bushels from 2.634. Harvest acres were raised 300,000 acres. World ending stocks were raised from 53.10 to 57.56 million metric tons. The weekly export inspections were 45.6 million, which takes shipments to 53 million bushels ahead of last year’s pace. Export basis has remained firm, and the Army Corps of Engineers is working on getting barge traffic flowing through dredging. South American planting is a shade behind normal, and rains in Northern Brazil should help farmers catch up in the next couple weeks.

Why Plant Conservation Trees? Early explorers described the Nebraska territory as the “Great American Desert,” without a tree to be seen in a day’s travel. The first settlers realized the value of trees. They planted millions of trees and shrubs on barren homesteads to help fulfill their basic needs for protection, building material, fuel and food. Planting trees quickly became a Nebraska tradition, and Nebraska proudly became known as “The Tree Planter State.” Today, all Nebraskans benefit from the trees planted by our ancestors. “The need for trees remains important today. The job is not finished,” said Dennis Adams, forester with the Nebraska Forest Service and University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension. Adams estimates that there is a need to annually plant about 6 million trees and shrubs for all conservation purposes in Nebraska, including: · Energy Conservation -- A good shelterbelt can reduce home heating and cooling costs by up to 30%.

· Crop Protection -- A good field windbreak can increase average dryland crop yields up to 15% and may make the difference between a crop and no crop in a severe drought year. · Livestock Protection -- A well-designed livestock windbreak reduces stress on livestock, increases weight gain and can decrease cattle mortality during severe winter storms. · Wildlife Habitat -- Trees and shrubs provide a diversity of cover, protection and food to attract wildlife. · Snow Control -- Well-placed shelterbelts can minimize snow drifting on roads, driveways and in farmsteads, or distribute snow more evenly over fields. · Soil Conservation -- Well-designed field windbreaks help prevent wind erosion of soil on bare cropland. · Water Quality -- A cover of trees and shrubs minimizes soil erosion, stabilizes stream banks in riparian areas and removes soil contaminants.

· Wood Products -- As trees grow they provide valuable firewood, lumber, biomass and other valuable wood products. · Food -- Many trees and shrubs are a valuable source of fruit and nuts for humans and animals. “Often trees and shrubs planted for one specific conservation purpose also provide additional benefits,” Adams said. “For example, a shelterbelt planted primarily to prevent snow drifting in the farmstead driveway also reduces energy costs, attracts wildlife and adds beauty as extra benefits,” he added. The Nebraska Conservation Trees Initiative Partnership is a consortium of local, state and federal agencies that includes: Nebraska’s natural resources districts, the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts, the Nebraska Forest Service, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Forest Service, and USDA Farm Service Agency.

Fall Site Preparation for Tree and Shrub and time of year,” Adams added. “Fall soil preparation is beneficial in several ways: (1) it increases soil capacity to store water from winter precipitation, (2) the soil will loosen over winter and pack better around the roots of seedlings planted next spring, and (3) it reduces weed and grass competition next spring.” Chemical site preparation to kill perennial grass or other competing vegetation is usually done in summer or early fall in preparation for tree planting the next spring. “This year, it may be too late to use chemicals for site preparation, but some type of soil tillage is still an option,” the forester said. “On relatively flat planting sites in eastern Nebraska where soil erosion is not a concern,

the entire planting site may be fall plowed and/or disked in preparation for spring tree planting. On sloping land, plowed or roto-tilled tree planting strips following the contour is recommended to minimize soil erosion,” Adams explained. The Nebraska Conservation Trees Initiative Partnership is a consortium of local, state and federal agencies that includes: Nebraska’s natural resources districts, the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts, the Nebraska Forest Service and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Forest Service and USDA Farm Service Agency.

THE

Farmers and ranchers planning to plant a new livestock windbreak, farmstead windbreak, wildlife habitat planting, or other conservation tree and/or shrub project next spring should prepare the planting site this fall. “Good site preparation now may be the difference between a successful tree planting and total failure,” said Dennis Adams, forester with the Nebraska Forest Service and University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension. Proper site preparation should kill and/or remove vegetation that would compete with newly-planted tree and/or shrub seedlings, and provide good soil conditions in which to plant the seedlings. “The best method of soil preparation depends on the terrain, soil type, existing vegetation

HEARTLAND CATTLEMAN Dedicated to the Livestock Industry

Association of Nebraska Ethanol Producers: Cattle Producers Fear Loss of Dried Distillers Grains While some livestock organizations have called for suspending the Environmental Protection Agency's Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) and the production of ethanol -- fearing tight corn supplies, rising prices and the ongoing drought -many other local cattle producers have become concerned that any waiver would curtail the availability of the popular and high-protein feed supplements which are valuable by-products of ethanol, dried distillers grains (DDGs) and wet distillers grains. Even before rising corn prices slowed production of ethanol and allowed routine annual ethanol plant maintenance, members of the Association of Nebraska Ethanol Producers (ANEEP) have been proactive in reaching out for a dialogue and conducting local area tours, offering presentations to and gathering input from one of their most important customers, cattle producers. Contrary to [the calls to suspend RFS] and not entirely surprisingly, local cattle producers were overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the RFS in place and supporting the continued production of ethanol. Many cattle producers have apologized for what they feel are contrary positions that state and national producer organizations have taken aligning themselves with national grocers, environmental organizations and petroleum interests in calling for waiving the RFS. Loran Schmit, ANEEP executive director, has repeatedly called on cattle producers to seriously examine the negative impact waiving the RFS would have on the price and quality of available feedstocks such as DDGs, especially as their absence from the feed supply would prolong bringing fed cattle to market. Several area ethanol plant managers who have recently conducted tours of their facility with local cattle producers have reported widespread support for both the production of ethanol and DDGs. According to Chuck Woodside -- CEO of farmerowned KAAPA Ethanol in Minden, Nebraska, and chairman of the Renewable Fuels Association -- in his area, wet distillers grains are a highly sought and highly valuable feed ingredient that allows

cattle producers to maximize inclusion of lowercost forage sources, such as corn stalks. “Our area cattlemen understand that while reducing biofuel production under a waiver might theoretically have marginal effects on corn prices, there would be offsetting effects on the total cost of feed because of reduced availability of [and higher prices for] co-product feeds.�

“Cattlemen realize that while the ethanol industry competes for area-grown corn, they also understand that 75 to 80 percent of each bushel comes back to them in the form of affordable and highly digestible DDGs.� Carl Sitzmann, general manager of E Energy Adams, LLC, stated some time ago after state and national organizations begin calling to waive the RFS, E Energy Adams had 30 individuals from the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association tour their facility. “We pointed out to them the value of distillers grains [DDGs] and how we must all work together in the ag industry during these difficult times,� said Sitzmann. “The touring gentlemen knew of the comments their leaders has made in the past regarding ethanol and the RFS mandate [waiver]. At the end of the tour and with phone calls the next day, there were several apologies from our guests concerning some of the statements made by their leadership. They were duly impressed with our facility and recognize the value that our industry brings to agriculture as a whole and to their livestock industry specifically.� Allen Sievertsen, general manager of the Elkhorn Valley Ethanol Plant, also invited members of the Elkhorn Valley Livestock Feeders

to tour the Louis Dreyfus plant at Norfolk, Neb., with more than twenty members of the Feeders association in attendance. Sievertsen gave members of ANEEP the opportunity to address the gathering and there was absolutely no hostility from the Feeders association toward the ethanol industry. “There was an open discussion regarding the value of the distillers grain as a ration component for the cattle feeding industry,� said Sievertsen. “The entire event was very positive and I believe it is accurate to say that the Feeders were impressed with the ethanol plant operation and the knowledge and expertise of the ethanol plant employees.� According to ANEEP’s Schmit, all politics is local, and the state and national livestock organizations should check their own backyard and clearly understand the ramifications to their members in supporting poorly thought-out policy. Schmit recently attended the Nebraska State Chamber of Commerce state congressional fly-in where Senator Mike Johanns stated that he had attended a meeting at Gering, Neb., where the issue of waiving the RFS was discussed thoroughly. At the conclusion of the meeting, Senator Johanns stated that a constituent addressed the group and said he was both a corn farmer and a cattle producer and asked the senator not to waive the RFS program. “Senator Johanns left no doubt in anyone’s mind that he would not support waiving the RFS,� said Schmit. “Cattlemen realize that while the ethanol industry competes for area-grown corn, they also understand that 75 to 80 percent of each bushel comes back to them in the form of affordable and highly digestible DDGs,� said Schmit. “DDGs are high in protein, oil content and energy that adds to the efficient finishing of feeder cattle. Getting these animals to gain weight faster and to market earlier increases feeder efficiencies and saves consumers money at the grocery store.� ANEEP will continue to work with both ethanol producers and livestock producers to promote a strong agricultural economy that benefits both livestock and grain producers.

Lean hogs have worked higher as strength in the cutout and cash market has helped trade move higher. The December contract is 135 higher on the week and has resistance at $7900 for the near term, with support at $7600. If we can get above the $79 area definitively both for the December it should fuel a little more buying. Packers have been killing hogs aggressively. Cash prices have continued to work higher with packers having a harder time securing supplies for an aggressive kill schedule. The pork cutout has moved higher this week, moving packers solidly into the black. Softness in the bean market provides an opportunity to cover meal needs. The back months have struggled with ideas that liquidation may slow more than expected. The poultry flock has been expanding and the rising cutout may limit retail competitiveness for pork coming forward. Hedgers call with questions, and focus on margins looking into next year.

Cattle prices have been fairly sideways this week, as the trade awaits significant cash trade to develop. The December contract is 40 higher on the week, and the November feeder cattle are 55 higher with corn prices softer. Cash trade is expected to materialize later in the week, with $125 asking prices, and $121 offers. Packer margins remain poor the cutout has been mixed this week. Choice is up .99 at 190.98 and select up 1.36 at 176.92 on Wednesday. The choice select spread has been fairly steady but illustrates a better supply demand mix for Choice beef, and that feedlots have been current. Showlists have been pretty steady lately and November 2012 Feeder Cattle (CBOT)

demand has improved a tad with pork prices rising. Japan has been taking more beef as well. Some deliveries against the October contract have been noted. The December futures contract has support at $126 for now, and the chart is neutral to sideways. Better cash trade will be required to move the board much higher. Feeder cattle placement should pick up more once harvest is done although wheat pasture in TX/OK looks more promising this week. Feed supplies will become more of an issue post harvest.

Features:

BIG RED Built Honda Tough.

Everywhere you look, there’s another feature that sets Honda’s Big Red apart. Of course the 675cc liquid-cooled engine, 2WD/4WD drivetrain and independent suspension all around are great places to start. But how about the Honda Automatic Transmission: Quite simply, this is the best automatic transmission available in any MUV. Big claim? Sure, but check out these features: A stout, heavy-duty torque converter instead of a system of pulleys and belts, three hydraulic clutches, and positive engine braking.

• Maintain visibility when reel is raised hydraulically from your line of sight • Narrow clearance helps prevent corn draping over outside dividers • Adjustable paddle placement • Reel tube coupler allows expansion from a 4-row to a 18-row reel

• Stop height is adjustable • “Combine Specific” hydraulic kits • Adjustable Fore & Aft options (manual or hydraulically controlled) Optional Fore & Aft Hydraulic Control Available on New Reels And as a Retrofit Kit

Big Red® honda.com. Big Red is only for drivers 16 years and older. Multi-purpose utility vehicles can be hazardous to operate. For your safety, be responsible. Always wear a helmet, eye protection and appropriate clothing. Always wear your seat belt, and keep the side nets and doors closed. Avoid excessive speeds and be careful on difficult terrain. All Muv drivers should watch the safety video “Multipurpose utility vehicles: A Guide to Safe Operation” and read the owner’s manual before operating the vehicle. Never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, on public roads or with more than one passenger. Driver and passenger must be tall enough for seat belt to fit properly and to brace themselves with both feet firmly on the floor. Passenger must be able to grasp the hand hold with the seat belt on and both feet on the floor. Respect the environment when driving. Big Red® is a registered trademark of Honda Motor Co., Ltd.

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

›:ljkfddX[\#:ljkfd=`k ›>lXiXek\\[<e\i^pJXm`e^j ›=XZkfipKiX`e\[@ejkXcc\ij ›C`Z\ej\[9lj`e\jj9li\XlD\dY\i ›CfnIXk\jGXpd\ekj8mX`cXYc\ ›=XZkfipI\YXk\j8mX`cXYc\Efn

For 39 years, FRE-FLO™ technology has been providing benefits for turf by opening up and unclogging soil pores, allowing more optimal drainage of high salinity soil.

FRE-FLO™ Increases Profits By Conservation Of Water And Energy.

FRE-FLO™ substantially reduces soil salinity by leaching salts without using additional water.

Research documents that 16% to 29% less water AND less pumping energy are needed in irrigation applications where high levels of hard Calcium Carbonate water and poor soil exist.

Soil permeability and tilth are improved. Through its leaching functions, FRE-FLO™ is able to reduce the Electro Conductivity (EC). and Sodium (Na) in the soil. Due to improved quality soil with better nutrient uptake, healthier, stronger plants, trees and turf are achieved.

How it works

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

Nebraska Wheat Crop Down 18 Percent in 2012 Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent This year's wheat harvest in Nebraska was down 18 percent, at 53.3 million acres, the smallest crop since 2002, according to the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), Nebraska Field Office. While drought impacted this year's wheat crop -- which was sown in the fall of 2011 -what impacted the size of this year's crop the most was the decline in acreage, rather than the drought. In a report released by NASS said that area harvested for grain, at 1.3 million acres, is 150,000 acres less than last year. Average yield in Nebraska, at 41 bushels per acre, is 4 bushels less than last year and the lowest since 2006. In 2002, which was a year impacted by drought conditions, wheat yields averaged 33 bushels per acre. Over the last several decades, wheat acres have been on the decline as corn and soybean acres increased. While state farmers sowed 1.32 acres in the fall of 2011, which was a 9 percent decline, corn acres grew to 9.9 million acres planted in the spring, making it the state's largest corn crop since 1993. Also, soybean acres grew by 4 percent from the previous year. At 5.1 million acres planted, it was the second largest soybean crop on record in Nebraska. This fall, drought is impacting the sowing of next year's wheat crop, as NASS reported earlier this week that 47 percent of the wheat crop has been seeded, behind the five-year average of 59 percent. The report also said the winter wheat emerged was 5 percent, behind the 19 percent last year and the five-year average of 21 percent. The lack of emergence is due to dry soil conditions. Drought conditions continue to grip Nebraska. For example, Grand Island, which has received 8.58 inches of precipitation for the year, is 14.29 inches below the 30-year average.

Page 13

Autumn Colors Noel Mues, Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Furnas County

Last year, at this time, Grand Island had recorded 23.64 inches of precipitation, which was less than an inch above the 30-year average. That type of moisture allowed for good subsoil moisture reserves going into the winter, with subsoil moisture rated 69 percent adequate last year at this time. This year, subsoil moisture is rated 2 percent adequate and 98 percent short or very short. Topsoil moisture, statewide, is rated 95 percent poor or very poor, compared to 67 percent adequate and 33 percent poor or very poor last year. The U.S. seasonal drought outlook through Dec. 31 calls for drought conditions throughout Nebraska to persist. That lack of subsoil moisture reserves will also impact Nebraska's grass crop as 98 percent of the state's pastures and range land is rated poor or very poor, compared to 71 percent good or excellent last year. Nationwide, all wheat production totaled 2.27 billion bushels in 2012, up 13 percent from 2011. Grain area totaled 49 million acres, up 7 percent from the previous year. The United States average yield is 46.3 bushels per acre, up 2.6 bushels from the previous year, and matches the record high from 2010. The levels of production and changes from 2011 by type are winter wheat, 1.65 billion bushels, up 10 percent; other spring wheat, 542 million bushels, up 19 percent; and durum wheat, 82 million bushels, up 62 percent. The USDA also reported that oat production in Nebraska during 2012 totaled 1 million bushels, 21 percent less than the 2011 crop and the smallest production since 1868. Planted acreage, at 75,000, is 25 percent more than 2011. Area harvested for grain, at 18,000 acres, is 2,000 acres below the level set a year ago. Yield, at 57 bushels per acre, is down 8 bushels from last year.

As the days get cooler and frost is in the air, deciduous trees and shrubs put on an autumn show of leaves in all shades of red, yellow, purple, and brown. The splendor of crisp fall days and vibrant leaves brings to mind memories for nearly everyone who lives in an area where deciduous forests are the dominant vegetation. In many parts of the country, autumn leaves are an important factor in tourism. Why do leaves change color in the fall? When leaves appear green, it is because they contain an abundance of chlorophyll, a pigment. There is so much chlorophyll in an active leaf that the green masks other pigment colors. Light regulates chlorophyll production, so as autumn days grow shorter, less chlorophyll is produced. The decomposition rate of chlorophyll remains constant, so the green color starts to fade from leaves. At the same time, surging sugar concentrations cause increased production of anthocyanin pigments. Leaves containing primarily anthocyanins will appear red. Carotenoids are another class of pigments found in some leaves. Carotenoid production is not dependent on light, so levels aren't diminished by shortened days. Carotenoids can be orange, yellow, or red, but most of these pigments found in leaves are yellow. Leaves with good amounts of both anthocyanins and carotenoids will appear orange. Leaves with carotenoids but little or no anthocyanin will appear yellow. In the absence of these pigments, other plant chemicals also can affect leaf color. An example includes tannins, which are responsible for the brownish color of some oak leaves. Continued on page 16

Rural Post Offices: Mail Service Cuts Are Only Options David Hendee, The Omaha World-Herald Notices are arriving in mailboxes of rural Americans -- who fought off a plan earlier this year to close thousands of small-town post offices that change is still coming. Many of the nation's smallest post offices, including hundreds in Nebraska and Iowa, will cut their retail window hours by 2014 -- unless postal patrons elect one of three options that would shut down their post office. The plan would keep the existing post office in place, but with modified retail window hours to match customer use, postal officials said. Access to the retail lobby and to post office boxes would remain unchanged. The town's ZIP code and community identity would be retained. In Nebraska, the first community meetings to explain the options were in Ashby, Crab Orchard, Hoskins and Merriman. Gloria Doffin plans to attend. Doffin, office manager at Hoskins Manufacturing, a company that produces livestock waterers, said reduced window hours could delay and add expense to outgoing shipments. "How come they offered three options for closing the post office but only one to keep it open?'' she said. "It could have a major impact on us.'' Brian Sperry, a U.S. Postal Service regional spokesman in Denver, Colo., said modifying retail window hours at more than 13,000 rural post offices across the country will preserve them and enable the service to cut costs and help return the organization to financial stability. The Postal Service lost $8.5 billion in fiscal year 2012 and $5.1 billion in 2011. The projected loss this fiscal year is $15 billion. The Postal Service receives no taxpayer dollars for its operations. It relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. First-class mail deliveries have declined 25 percent during the past six years. "Doing business as usual is not an option," Sperry said. Rural Americans made themselves heard loud and clear when they rejected closure plans floated about 18 months ago, Sperry said. "We just need to adopt a new business model," he said. "A lot of people pay their bills online. We realize even more people will pays bills that way in the future. We get it. We understand the

digital revolution is here, but we also understand that the Postal Service remains a vital part of communities." Randel and Jane Smith, who operate a floating bed-and-breakfast on a former casino boat in Brownville, Neb., said the post office's role in a small town can't be overemphasized. Jane Smith said the post office is vital to the winery, bookstores, antique shops, art galleries and seven museums in the Missouri River village of 132 in southeast Nebraska. "It's the hub of the community," Jane Smith said. "In a small town, we really work to keep our town going. The post office is a big part of that.'' The Smiths walk down the hill from their home on Fourth Street to the post office six days a week. "Everybody goes down in the morning to get their mail," she said. The Brownville Post Office lobby and retail window open at 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Mail is ready for pickup in postal boxes by 8 a.m. Jessica Murphy, the officer in charge, closes the window from noon to 1:30 p.m. and then reopens until 4 p.m. The Postal Service has proposed cutting Brownville's hours to four hours a day. Murphy said mail volume ebbs and flows in Brownville. The nearby Cooper Nuclear Station generates a steady stream of letters and packages. "This time of year, with the election and holidays, it definitely picks up," Murphy said. Randel Smith was skeptical about the intent behind cutting hours. "I don't think it's a good idea because it's the first step to not having a post office at all,'' he said. Post offices in affected towns will remain open with reduced hours unless at least 60 percent of community members indicate in a mailed survey that they prefer one of three other options, each of which would close the local post office. The three other options include starting curb-side delivery, which is not available now; offering service at a post office in a nearby community; or establishing a Village Post Office in a local business. A Village Post Office is a year-old initiative to provide postal services -- in convenience stores, libraries and businesses, for example -- that are operated by the management of those locations. The operations offer postal services See Us Boo th 4 At 11 &4 12

most used by customers, such as postal boxes, stamps and collection boxes. Sperry said the Postal Service will consider establishing a Village Post Office in any location where there is no existing post office or where the post office will have reduced hours. Murphy said several dozen postal patrons have returned surveys seeking their opinion on the future of the Brownville Post Office. Results will be announced at a meeting next week. In Hoskins, a town of 285 in Wayne County in northeast Nebraska, people who commute to nearby Norfolk or other communities would find it more difficult to pick up packages during shortened window hours, said Rodney Rixe, pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church. "A lot of people are used to driving back and forth to Norfolk, so dropping off a package at the post office isn't the end of the world. We can do that,'' he said. "But the biggest inconvenience will be trying to pick up a package that doesn't fit into your little box." Rixe said shortened hours may inspire a local business to contract with the Postal Service to open a Village Post Office. Most afternoons, Doffin walks half a block from Hoskins Manufacturing to the post office to mail urgently needed supplies -- such as small parts to repair a water tank heater. United Parcel Service stops at Hoskins Manufacturing in the morning. Some outbound shipments miss the UPS pick-up. Doffin said she prefers to mail small parts in padded envelopes via the local post office because the cost is lower than UPS and shipments could be in the hands of an area farmer the next day. Not all small post offices face reduced hours. In some places, such as Gray, Iowa, a village of 64 in Audubon County, the hours will not change. Gray is scheduled to keep its two-hour daily schedule, if postal patrons agree. Also, post offices located at least 25 miles from another post office will be operational six hours daily regardless of workload, Sperry said. Postal patrons in affected communities will be notified by mail of the time, date and place of their local meeting. Some meetings won't be held until next year. During the meetings, post office managers will share results of the surveys. The results and public comments will be taken into account before a final decision is posted inside the post office later, Sperry said.

Still Time to Submit Business Ideas The Kearney Hub KEARNEY, Neb. -- The deadline is approaching to submit entries in the second annual Central Nebraska Business Idea Contest at the Center for Rural Research and Development at the University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK). "Your business idea does not have to be a fully thought-out business model, just a description of the product or service, what need it serves, who your customers might be and how you would make it available to those customers," said Shawn Kaskie, director for the UNK Center for Rural Research and Development (CRRD). "To enter, simply submit a two-minute video of you pitching your idea, post it onto YouTube and paste the URL [Internet address] at www.pitchburner.com/unk," Kaskie said. Submissions are due at midnight Oct. 28. Further instructions on where and how to submit a video are available on the CRRD website at www.unk.edu/crrd. "If you don't have video equipment, you can stop by the CRRD on the UNK campus, and you

can film your pitch at our office," Kaskie said. "We'll make sure it gets evaluated for a chance to be in the Top 10." To set up a time at the CRRD office, individuals need to call 308-8658199. All videos submitted by the deadline will be evaluated, and the top 10 participants will be invited to present in a five-minute questionand-answer session at 7 p.m. on Nov. 14 at KRave Underground at 2202 Central Ave. in Kearney. "The crowd will select the best and will award first place the $1,000 prize, and second place will receive $500," Kaskie said. "The purpose of this event is to support a culture of entrepreneurship in Central Nebraska by providing individuals with invaluable feedback." The event is sponsored by the Economic Development Council of Buffalo County, the Center for Research and Development in the UNK College of Business and Technology and Invest Nebraska.

High Plains Ag Lab Nears Fundraising Goal to Replace Headquarters SIDNEY -- A fund-raising effort to build a modern office and laboratory at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s High Plains Agricultural Lab (HPAL) north of Sidney is nearing its goal. But organizers of the fund drive are hoping for more significant donations to help reach the goal. The High Plains Ag Lab Building Project proposes construction of a new building with an estimated cost of about $500,000 to $550,000. To date, about $400,000 has been raised. The new building would replace a 1940s-era structure that was part of the Sioux Army Ordnance Depot when the U.S. government gave the property to the university in 1970. The campaign is conducted by a local building project committee and the University of Nebraska Foundation. Gifts can be made in the form of cash, grain, or pledges that can be paid off over three years. It is hoped that money can be raised soon so construction can begin in early 2013, according to Barb Schlothauer, director of development for the University of Nebraska Foundation in the Panhandle. Schlothauer said the fund-drive

organizers are pleased that so many individuals, foundations and agricultural businesses have stepped up to support the project. Although the goal is in sight, it is important that larger donations continue to come in, she stressed. Private, tax-deductible donations are the sole source of the project, Schlothauer said. All gifts are given to the University of Nebraska Foundation to support the High Plains Ag Lab Building Fund. The proposed facility would consist of a 2,400square-foot building that would provide office space for visiting scientists and graduate students and provide a more suitable area for processing samples of grain and forage than now exists. It would include a laboratory and associated space for equipment and receiving a conference room and work stations for a farm manager and up to eight other staff, students or visiting scientists. The existing building wasn’t designed as a research facility. A small seed-cleaning lab is the only research laboratory.

Chairman of the HPAL Building Project Committee is Keith Rexroth of Sidney, who farms in the area and whose father was one of a local development group instrumental in getting the ag lab started. HPAL, six miles northwest of Sidney, is a satellite unit of the UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center. One-third of its 2,400 acres are used for dryland crop research and two-thirds is in pasture. The facility’s mission is unique to the High Plains, a high-elevation, semi-arid crop region. Five faculty members based in the Panhandle conduct the majority of the research, including a dryland cropping systems specialist, alternative crops breeder, cow-calf/range management specialist, entomologist and soil fertility specialist. Several technicians help carry out research projects, and other faculty and technicians also travel from Scottsbluff occasionally to work on research. Anybody interested in making a donation should contact the NU Foundation’s Barb Schlothauer at 308-632-1207.

Nebraska Farm & Ranch - Gateway Farm Expo

Harvest Help Warms Families' Hearts Rick Ruggles, The Omaha World-Herald Carol Byers' husband died unexpectedly in June, and she was left with more than 500 acres of crops that she had no idea how to handle. The day after Fred Byers' death, one of his friends, Don Lord, told Carol Byers not to worry. Lord and other farmers in the Sloan, Iowa, area fulfilled their pledge Monday when 50 of them using numerous combines harvested the corn and soybeans in the Byers' fields. No questions asked, no payment of any kind required. Farmers have a tradition of helping other farm families in crisis. They know what a big job they face. They appreciate how overwhelming those huge fields may seem when a person is coping with the blows that life delivers. The same thing happened near Bradshaw, Neb. Daniel Graves died in August after a long fight with cancer. Farmers showed up Monday with combines, grain carts, trucks and drivers and took care of their friend's 550 acres. "I have no words," said Daniel Graves' son, Dan. "All I know is that I'm proud to be part of this community. And my dad was, too." Fred Byers' ancestors founded the farm north of Sloan more than 100 years ago. The Byerses shared ownership with his sister in Missouri. When Lord's father died 13 years ago, Don Lord returned home from the prayer service to find Fred Byers and other neighbors harvesting a field of soybeans for him. "They just showed up and did it," Lord said. Fred Byers told funny stories and wanted to please people. His sense of humor appealed to his future wife when they dated, although she admitted Wednesday that some of those stories weren't quite as funny after 26 years of marriage. After a CT scan was performed on her husband's throat, he came home uncharacteristically somber. He told her everything was fine. He paid off a bunch of bills and then had a biopsy done the next day on the tumor in his throat, Carol Byers

said. He never woke up from the biopsy surgery and died later that day at 60 years old. Now retired, Carol Byers had worked at a golf course for years. She had no experience in farm management. "Zilch," she said. But her husband's friends and acquaintances got her through this farm season. They put fertilizer on the fields, replanted a washed-out field of soybeans and sprayed the fields with herbicides. Next year, Carol Byers said, she and her sisterin-law, Susan White, will enter a rental arrangement with a farmer. In Bradshaw, farming wasn't just Daniel Graves' job or career, his family members said. It was his lifestyle. He considered himself a steward of the land, and he taught his children to appreciate the work, too. Graves was 62 when he died. His son planned to harvest the crops, but an army of farmers turned out this week to help. Dan Graves said he was baffled by how many farmers, swamped with their own work, left their fields to help him and his family. "It's amazing to be part of a community like this, where everyone is so willing to help each other," Dan Graves said. "I'm so touched. I'm so grateful. Words just can't express it." There's one field of soybeans left for harvesting on the Byers farm, and that will be taken care of soon. Carol Byers dabbled with the notion of throwing a dinner for the volunteers to convey her appreciation. She feared, however, that she would be too emotional. "They said, 'Carol, this is what we do. We don't want you to pay us back,'" she said. "I, of course, will send out thank-yous and let them know if there's anything I can do, I will surely do for them." This report includes material from the WorldHerald News Service.

Temperature, sunlight, and soil moisture greatly influence the quality of the fall foliage display but it's mainly light levels that are responsible for the brightest fall colors. Sunny autumn days are needed for the most colorful displays, since anthocyanins require light. Overcast days will lead to more yellows and browns. Abundant sunlight and low temperatures after the time the abscission (or separation) layer forms cause the chlorophyll to be destroyed more rapidly. Cool temperatures, particularly at night, combined with abundant sunlight, promote the formation of more anthocyanins. Freezing conditions destroy the machinery responsible for manufacturing anthocyanins, so early frost means an early end to colorful foliage. Drought stress during the growing season can also trigger the early formation of the abscission layer causing leaves to drop before they have a chance to develop fall coloration. A growing season with ample moisture followed by a rather dry, cool, sunny autumn that is marked by warm days and cool but frostless nights provides the best weather conditions for development of brilliant colors. Lack of wind and rain in the autumn prolongs the display; wind or heavy rain may cause the leaves to be lost before they develop their full color potential.

Nebraska Cattle on Feed Up 11 Percent Nebraska feedlots with capacities of 1,000 or more head contained 2.24 million cattle on feed on September 1, 2012. The inventory was up 11 percent from last year and the highest since the data series began in 1994. Placements in feedlots during August totaled 470,000 head, up 6 percent from 2011. Marketings of fed cattle during August totaled 445,000 head, up 11 percent from last year and the highest since the data series began in 1994. Other disappearance during August totaled 15,000 head, the same as August 2011.
