More Farm Bill Drama Lies Ahead By Harold Reutter, The Grand Island Independent If history is any guide, there will be no agreement on extension of the federal farm bill in either 2011 or 2012, according to National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson. Johnson made his remarks Saturday at the annual convention of the Nebraska Farmers Union in Grand Island. He said a presidential election year has never proven to be a good year to get a farm bill through Congress. Johnson said the recent history of farm bills is that they have not been reauthorized before the year they are set to expire.

As a result, Johnson said, more and more people are discussing the possibility of a temporary one- or two-year extension of the farm bill. From the Nebraska Farmers Union point of view, it would be better if that temporary extension would include most or all of 37 programs that are not slated for automatic extension along with the farm bill. Following his talk to members of the Nebraska Farmers Union, Johnson said it might be a little easier to have some of those programs extended for one or two years because the overall budget impact is not as great at a time when calls to reduce the annual federal deficit have become more pronounced.

Daryll Ray, an agricultural economist and Blasingame Chair of Excellence at the University of Tennessee, outlined some of the challenges facing reauthorization of a farm bill that would be good from the Nebraska Farmers Union's point of view. He said getting a good farm bill is always difficult when prices for agriculture seem to be high. That point was seconded by Johnson, who added that when farm prices are good, the feeling becomes more prevalent that farmers need less help and support from the farm bill. Johnson said the assumption is made that prices will always remain Continued on page 20 A large pile of corn sitting east of the Farmer's Co-op Elevators in Hemingford is evidence that the corn harvest is over for Box Butte County in 2010.

Weather Commentary Provided By Al Dutcher—UNL, State Climatologist

Al Dutcher Report The past two weeks brought mostly dry weather to Nebraska, with only light snow and freezing drizzle/mist reported with a couple of quick moving storm systems that crossed the state. The only significant event reported during the past two weeks fell on 12/6 and brought 0.25-0.45 inches of Allen Dutcher moisture to the extreme southwestern corner of the state. The remainder of the state reported trace amounts to 0.05 inches of moisture during the past two weeks. Models continue to indicate that most of the storm activity during the next two weeks will be confined to areas east or west of the state, leaving the drier than normal trend in tact for Nebraska and our neighbors to the south. Week One Forecast: 12/11-12/17: A significant snow storm will organize over the central corn belt early in the period and move toward the

northeastern U.S. during the 12/12-12/13 time frame. Scattered light snow and a brief period of freezing mist will be possible on 12/11 across the state, but significant accumulations will remain east of Nebraska. Very cold air will be drawn southward on the backside of this storm, with highs on 12/11 topping out in upper 20's to low 30's during the early morning hours, then dropping as the day progresses. Snowfall accumulations should be less than an inch with strong winds causing near blizzard like conditions. Dry conditions are projected for the 12/12-12/16 period as high pressure dominates the central and southern Plains. Highs on 12/12 are forecasted to range from the low 40's across the western Panhandle to the low 20's along the Missouri river. Highs will be in the 50's west to upper 20's extreme east on 12/13, with highs in the mid 30's northeast to mid 50's southwest on 12/14. High temperatures may cool about 5 degrees on 12/15 as the ridge begins to flatten in response to another storm entering the Pacific Northwest. Highs on 12/16 are projected to cool another 5 degrees with highs ranging from the mid 20's northeast to low 40's southwest. A storm system enters the state on 12/17 according to the models and should result in accumulating snowfall if the models are correct. Highs will

Clear skies are projected for 12/19 with cold temperatures. Highs are forecasted to range from the teens northeast to upper 20's southwest. A reinforcing shot of cold air is projected for 12/20 as an Alberta clipper moves southeastward across the state. Light snow is possible across the eastern half of the state, with the best chance for accumulations across northeast Nebraska.

Don't Get Discouraged by Holiday Weight Gain Submitted by Andrea Nisley, UNL Extension Educator Holidays are celebrated with family, friends and food, and many people struggle with maintaining their weight during the season. Even if that holiday weight does sneak on, people shouldn't get discouraged. The main goal should be not to gain weight. Use a smaller plate at holiday meals and provide smaller plates for guests at holiday parties. Doing so also will help keep portions smaller. Try not to go back for seconds. Watch the gravy, sauce, butter and desserts and make sure to eat bigger portions of healthier items, like vegetables. Lean meats, fresh fruits and fresh vegetables are excellent ways to maintain weight. Use nutrition labels on products to make healthier choices. When preparing food, try to lighten up the recipes with lighter, healthier varieties. Steam vegetables rather than loading them up with sauces and butter. Provide whole grain crackers, nuts, lowfat veggie dip, non-alcoholic beverages

and smaller plates if hosting a party. Make the party fun and not food-oriented. Play games or do things outside if it's warm enough. Also, keep exercising most days during the week for at least 30 to 60 minutes. Families, go for a walk after dinner or go sledding during Christmas break when the snow is on the ground. Just be active throughout the holidays. If weight gain occurs, don't be discouraged. The average person gains 10 pounds from Thanksgiving to the Super Bowl. Just keep an eye on weight during the holidays and if weight is getting higher, try to minimize portions and keep a healthier diet. Consider decreasing daily calorie intake by 250 calories and increase exercise by 250 calories. Doing so can help one pound disappear each week. Also, follow the MyPyramid recommendations and set realistic goals that are small and achievable. Don't eat food as a reward for reaching a goal, but do celebrate in some way. As long as the holidays aren't food-centered and healthy eating choices are made, losing holiday weight won't be an issue.

Consider Growing Amaryllis Bulbs David Lott, Horticulture Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, North Platte Tired of buying the same holiday housewarming gifts each year? Why not try giving and growing amaryllis bulbs this winter! These wintertime beauties are easy to grow, take care of, and enjoy with their beautiful, colorful blossoms that cheer up the home during winter. First, pick a large, firm, healthy amaryllis bulb. Next, choose a container that is only 1 to 2 inches wider around than the bulb. Choose a potting mix that is light and drains water well. Place the bulb in the container with the bulb covered halfway with the potting mix. Water the bulb thoroughly until the water runs out of the container. Do not water the bulb again until the bulb’s roots are well developed to avoid root rot. Place the bulb and container in a well lit, cool place in the house, around 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Longevity is one of the greatest features about growing amaryllis. After they have finished blooming, the attractive foliage can be enjoyed in

the home during the growing season. Place the amaryllis in a bright location in the home. Once the threat of frost has passed, the amaryllis, container and all, can also be planted in the ground in a bright location for the summer. As the foliage starts to turn yellow in the home or outside, start to cut back on watering the bulb. Once the foliage has died, allow the potting media to dry out completely. Carefully trim the dead foliage back with a clean scissors or knife. Store the amaryllis and its container on its side, in a cool place, preferably 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit, for two to three months. Do not water the bulb during this dormant period. Once the dormant period has passed, bring the bulb container out of the cool storage to a warm location. Resume watering to initiate new growth. New flower buds should appear in several weeks. Bulbs with four or more strong leaves will probably bloom. Bulbs with fewer or weaker foliage may not flower once brought out of dormancy. If taken care of correctly during another growing and dormant period, non-blooming bulbs can bloom in future years.

Feeding Songbirds in Winter David Lott, Horticulture Extension Educator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, North Platte Bird watching during the winter has become a major spectator sport for people of all ages and abilities. Long winters here create an opportunity to provide food and water to songbirds that might be in scarce supply. Retail centers, garden centers, and hardware stores provide a variety of bird feeders, bird food supplies, and water heaters for consumers to consider and purchase for their yards in the hope of attracting songbirds to eat and drink outside of their windows. In return, feeding birds can provide hours of enjoyment and interest. A wide variety of colorful magazines and Extension publications from across the United States are available for feeding birds. While reading and enjoying this material, the key is to consider recommendations that matches the local climate and birds that are in the area for the winter. Here are some basic items to consider when planning for and feeding songbirds for the winter. · Which songbirds are in the area for the winter? Try keeping a list of the songbirds that are noticed. This will help indicate which type of feed to purchase and where to place the feeder. · Where do these birds potentially reside in your yard, neighborhood, or area? Place feeders and water supplies where the birds will find them, and will actually eat out of them. Location of feeders depends on the specific bird. Generally, a location in close proximity to trees, branches, shrubs, or other potential perching locations is helpful. · Select a feeder that is well suited for the birds

that arrive in the yard. There is a wide variety to choose from locally or through online shopping. Selecting the best suited feeder will help increase the chances of birds actually eating out of the feeder. · Choose feed for the birds that you know are in the area for winter. Feed may also be chosen and correctly placed to try to attract birds of specific interest that may not readily visit the yard, but could if food was available. Feed will vary in content, and which birds it will attract. Doing the homework ahead could save money on wasted or uneaten feed. · What about the squirrels? They seem to find ways to get into feeders, and scare away desired birds when they eat. If squirrels are a problem, consider setting up a separate feeder in the yard for the squirrels to eat out of. Feeders using ears of corn are very popular. Choosing bird feeders that make it difficult for squirrels to feed in may be an option as well. · Providing a consistent source of thawed water will help attract birds as well. Water heaters can be purchased to place in birdbaths or other containers to help keep the water supply thawed and available for the birds to drink out of. Use water containers that will withstand the winter cold, and are the correct volume for the heater’s ability to thaw the water. Please read and follow all water heater instructions when using them outside. Provide a consistent source of electricity for the heaters so they can continue to heat and keep the water thawed. · The Extension Office has a wide variety of publications on feeding songbirds. These publications contain specific material for specific bird species on feeder type, preferred feed, and where to place the feeder for maximum use.

• IT’S THE PITTS by Lee Pitts •

This Just-In

by Lee Pitts

Every time my friend who works in TV comes to my house with all his techno-gadgetry he makes me feel like a cave dweller in the dark ages. So when he came by the last time I made sure the TV was turned to a video cattle sale. “Pretty impressive the way we’re using the latest technology, isn’t it?” I asked. “Not bad, but I can see how you could make it a whole lot better.” ”How’s that?” I asked, realizing too late I was in for more belittlement. “It’s called embedded advertising and it’s all the rage in Hollywood.” “You want to make auctions better by having commercials?” I asked in horror. “No, no. That’s the beauty of product placement. People don’t know they’re watching an ad because the message is below the viewer’s conscious perception. For example, you might see George Clooney holding a Coke can or Betty White wearing a PETA pin. The visual stimuli are so subtle the viewers don’t even know they’re being manipulated. It’s also known as embedded advertising.” “It doesn’t work on me cause I’m not joining PETA!” “You see that windmill in the background there?” my friend said, ignoring me as he pointed to the TV. “You could put a toll free phone number on it to call for NFR tickets. Or you could have the Goodyear or Met Life blimp pass slowly by in the background.” “Next you’ll want to plaster ads on the

cattle like they do in Nascar.” “Now you’re getting the idea,” said my buddy. “If that’s too hard-sell you could just shave their hair so that it would faintly say Merial or Pfizer. And see that rancher in the background on the good horse? Why not have a set of LED lights on the saddle blinking “AQHA” off and on? I’m telling you, there’s a lot of money to be made here.” Next I went to my computer and went to the Livestock Marketing Association’s website where each week they show the sales of over 50 auction markets. What do you think of that?” I proudly asked my friend. “Wow! I had no idea auction markets were so progressive. And here too I see many places for product placement,” he said as I tuned into an auction in progress. “The middle of that ring should have a logo on the floor, and see that guy in the ring? He could be wearing a shirt with “Wrangler” written on it.” “Would the shirt be free?” I asked, becoming more interested by the minute in this new form of advertising. “I can’t understand the chant of the auctioneer either,” said my friend.” He should slow it down and work the names of advertisers into his chant. Such as, 90 cents, Dodge who’ll give me 91 cents, Chevrolet, 92 cents Ford. Sold to Harris, try their new pot roast.” “Catchy. I see how that could be a whole new source of income for auctioneers. And during the dead space they could also read

commercials,” I said sarcastically. Ignoring me, he said, “The front panels of the ring should have signs on them.” “But then how would the buyers see the cattle?” “Yes, I see where that might be a problem. I notice in many of these auctions they show the crowd. See that guy in the front row when he crosses his legs and exposes the bottom of his boot? That’s valuable ad space I’m sure Justin would buy.” (For more on Justin Boots see the title of this essay.) “You know,” continued my Hollywood friend, “embedded advertising cannot only be used in TV and movies, but you too could make this a new source of revenue by incorporating it into your writing.” “Heaven knows I could use the extra cash,” I said. “But if you think I’m going to prostitute myself by mentioning COKE or PEPSI just to make an extra BUCK (knives) so that I can make my next payment on my BUICK automobile , well then, you can think again mister. I’m not that DESPERATE (Housewives this Fall on ABC.)”.

Sensational Squash Interesting Facts “Squash”, one of the oldest known crops,comes from the Narragansett Native American word askutasquash, which means “eaten raw or uncooked.” Did you know that every part of the squash plant can be eaten, including the flowers, leaves and tender shoots, which can be cooked in soups or omelets. Qualities to look for when choosing a winter squash: • Skin that is easily nicked or scraped with a fingernail means that the squash did not reachmaturity. • Choose one that has a deep color and is heavy for its size. • Stem should be firm, rounded, and dry. Squash with no stem permits bacteria to enter. Winter squash has a long shelf life and if kept in a cool, dry place between 55 and 60 F, will store for up to

3 months. Cooked, pureed squash can be frozen and used later for soups, sauces, or stews. Squash varieties come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors and each has it’s own distinctive flavor, flesh color and texture. Choose a size based on your cooking needs and delight your palate with their many taste sensations. Parmesan Squash Cakes 2 cups shredded seeded summer squash about 1 pound 1 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 2/3 cup finely chopped shallots or red onion 1 Tablespoon parsley or basil 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or sharp Cheddar cheese 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Combine grated squash and 1 teaspoon salt. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. Rinse and drain. Dry to remove excess water. Combine squash, egg, shallot or onion, parsley or basil, black pepper and cheese. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Divide mixture into fourths. Place ¼ in skillet and pat down to make a 3-inch cake. Repeat with remaining mixture. Cook 3 to 4 minutes until browned and crispy on the bottom. Turn over and cook 2 to 3 minutes until done.

Fighting Tax Increases During the Lame Duck Session by Congressman Adrian Smith Grand Island Office 1811 West Second Street, Suite 105 Grand Island, NE68803 Phone: (308) 384-3900 Fax: (308) 384-3902

Americans sent an unmistakable message last month: Washington needs to cut spending and steward taxpayer dollars in a fiscally responsible manner. For far too long – and under both Republican and Democrat watches – our nation’s finances have been mismanaged and ruled by out-of-control spending. Unfortunately, if the last few days have been any indication, some in Congress simply refuse to listen to the American people. Due to inaction on appropriations bills necessary to avoid a government shutdown, the House and Senate were forced to remain in session after the election last month – a situation commonly referred to as a “lame duck” session. Time and time again, Members from both sides of the aisle have spoken on the need to create jobs and cut government spending. However, this lame duck session has simply proven to be a continuation of the failed legislative agenda which has stymied economic growth the last four years. Unless Congress acts, a $3.8 trillion tax hike is set to take effect on January 1, 2011. This would be the largest tax increase in our country’s history, and the average Nebraska family will see its

federal income taxes skyrocket from $3,461 to $5,090 – an increase of $1,600. Legislation put forth by House Democrats under the guise of "tax relief" would have in fact raised taxes on small businesses throughout our country. Simply bringing such a bill to the House floor shows a clear disconnect from the economic reality facing our country. I opposed this ill-conceived measure, and thankfully it appears dead on arrival in the Senate. Political tactics such as this – with job-killing implications for employers and entrepreneurs gripped by uncertainty over the looming tax hikes – only will further slow down our economy at a time when it is struggling to right itself. It is simple. Creating an environment of uncertainty does nothing to stem unemployment and only creates more headaches for job creators. This is not what the American people want, and it is past time for Washington to start listening. A tax hike at any level is detrimental to incomes, investments, and economic security at all levels. We shouldn’t be raising taxes on any American. Recent polls have shown 72 percent of Americans

have scaled back on everyday expenses, and almost half report cutting back on Thanksgiving dinners. To help our economy get back to creating jobs, we need to cut spending and prevent the tax hikes scheduled to take effect at the start of next year. The last thing our economy needs right now is a job-killing tax hike on small businesses. A clean bill which ensures no American faces a tax increase in this difficult economic environment is all but certain to engender a bipartisan majority in Congress. We also should hold nonsecurity discretionary spending at fiscal year 2008 levels. It is my hope we can use the lame duck session to take these necessary steps before Americans are saddled with the largest tax increase in American history. We won’t solve our fiscal challenges until we cut spending, stop the growth of government, and extend the current tax rates. The sooner we can provide certainty to American businesses – even if it is part of a lame duck session of Congress – the sooner they can get our economy back on track and start hiring again.

Border Security Update by Senator Ben Nelson Omaha Office 7502 Pacific St.,Suite 205 Omaha, NE 68114 Phone: (402) 391-3411 Fax: (402) 391-4725

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, better known as ICE, expects to deport about 400,000 people this fiscal year, nearly 10 percent above the Bush administration's 2008 total and 25 percent more than were deported in 2007. Nearly 50 percent of the people who have been deported this budget year have a criminal conviction, from driving without a license and DUI to major felonies. That represents an increase of more than 36,000 over the same period in 2009 when there was an increase of 22,000 over 2008. When you consider figures like that from a recent article in the Washington Post and gang raids like the one the FBI recently conducted in Grand Island, it drives home the point that the U.S. needs to continue working to secure our borders to curb illegal immigration. Securing the Border I’ve been pushing for a border security fence, augmented by unmanned aerial vehicles, for several years and am pleased to report that we are making progress. As of September 10, 2010, the U.S. has completed roughly 649 miles of pedestri-

an and vehicle fencing along the Southwest Border. A total of 350 miles of primary pedestrian fence has been constructed, while the final total of vehicle fence was officially completed in January. Last summer, I visited with ICE Director John Morton and Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin to discuss the continued securing of our southwestern border. They say that legislation passed by Congress has allowed them to assign additional Border Patrol Agents to the Tucson Sector and to establish a 500- agent Mobile Response Team that will have the ability to rapidly respond to emergency situations without depleting Border Patrol staffing from other locations. More Surveillance In a letter to me, Commissioner Bersin indicated the permanent staffing should now be up and running. Legislation also made available an additional 250 U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers who specialize in detecting the smuggling of illegal contraband as well as currency and weapons that are being brought over the U.S.

border from Mexico. The bill also provides $80 million for ICE to fill 225 positions to be placed in ICE’s five offices along the southwest border. It also increases the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems. Anticipating more arrests, the administration has expanded the system to 437 jails and prisons, up from 14, and aims to extend it to "every law enforcement jurisdiction" by 2013. During the lame duck session of Congress now underway there is talk about dealing with some immigration legislation known as the DREAM Act, which would give hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants a conditional path to legal residency. I'm not going to support any legislation that I don't think adds to jobs, or to the military or to the economy. Consequently, I won't support any motion to proceed or any kind of cloture measure on the DREAM Act. In addition, I think that it must be part of an overall comprehensive solution to immigration once we have the border secured, and not until then. We’re making progress but we’re not done yet.

The Thanks We Give by Senator Mike Johanns Kearney Office: 4111 Fourth Avenue, Suite 26 Kearney, NE 68845 Tel: (308) 236-7602 Fax: (308) 236-7473

From year to year our Thanksgiving feasts reflect both the changes and constancy in our lives. Times may be tough, but we can always look across the table at family and friends, and put into words and laughs our gratitude and happiness. I for one am particularly thankful this year to be a Nebraskan. As our country and the world continue to recover from an international recession, Nebraska has emerged as a leader and a shining example. Our unemployment rate remains less than half of the national average and second-lowest in the country. We are projected to increase jobs and payroll next year by 1.3 percent, seventh in the country. And the Cornhusker State continues to help set the standard for agriculture – ag will account for 6.8 percent of state GDP, third-largest in the country. These statistics are far from just a happy coincidence. They help paint a picture of a state that prides itself on hard work and common sense.

Scottsbluff Office: 115 Railway Street, Suite C102 Scottsbluff, NE 69361 Tel: (308) 632-6032 Fax: (308) 632-6295

Through your letters and emails to me, I know Nebraskans are informed, passionate, and committed to making our state, our country, and the world a better place. In Nebraska, the word "neighbor" describes not a geographical distinction but a relationship. Nebraskans safely rely on each other knowing they themselves would just as easily return the favor. This belief in individuals, families and communities is reflected in the local leaders Nebraskans elect and those who emerge through their own hard work. Statewide, our public servants and business owners make common sense decisions to improve and protect our long term future. They have the wisdom to make tough decisions and spend within their means. The Nebraska workforce and ag producers sustain a healthy economy and relationships predicated on common kindness. The pragmatism we've grown so accustomed to

in Nebraska is beginning to take hold in Washington. Less than a year after I announced my opposition to the Congressional earmark process, support has increased for a resolution to ban them and cut down on wasteful spending. And after the November election, momentum is already moving back toward a government that taxes less and encourages the entrepreneurial spirit with which Nebraskans are so familiar. The thanks we give this year will bring great relief after a challenging year. We can happily count our blessings knowing that soon we will all be back at work for each other, that our engagement helps our state excel, and that our state continues to shape our country. The things for which we owe thanks differ from year to year, but our gratitude and commitment to our neighbors and to our great state will always remain on Thanksgiving.

The Ravenna FFA Chapter The Ravenna FFA Chapter is off to another great year! The new officer team was brought forward at the annual FFA banquet held in April. The 2010-2011 officers are President-Torri Dethlefs, Vice President-Shelby Behrendt, Secretary-Paul Bauer, Treasurer-Mark Chramosta, News Reporter-Alex Behrendt, Sentinel-Josh Boardman, and ParliamentarianBrandon Kusek. All of these wonderful leaders attended the COLT Conference in Aurora at the end of May and learned many different ways of becoming better leaders. The Aurora trip is one of the many fun experiences that each and every Ravenna FFA member looks forward to doing. It takes place specifically in the summer at the Aurora Leadership Center in Nebraska. Each day is full of work but then there is a rewarding fun time at the end of the day! This year 16 members constructed, sanded, and stained picnic tables. The members also had a blast swimming in the pool and going fishing. Annevar, our annual town celebration, is a blast every year. The Ravenna FFA Chapter helps make it that way. We, as a chapter, participate in the parade and help with the concession stand at the tractor pull. Summertime is always a busy time for the chapter. In the month of July the Sherman County Fair captured 8 members while another 4 members participated in the Buffalo County Fair during the month of August. All of these members get the pleasure of receiving ribbons and money after the fair is over. Also, several of them were lucky enough, to have their items go to the State Fair in Grand Island and help welcome the fair to the area. SOLD! That word is the word that some FFA

members love to hear and that some dread. Our annual FFA Labor Auction took place on September 11,2010. All of the members, plus the advisor, were sold to local people or local companies who bid on them. Each of the members gets to work an eight hour day for their buyer. It is a great way to have the students give back to community members. Infinite Potential was this year’s fun national FFA convention theme. We had eight members attend. The members included Alex Behrendt, Emma Clifton, Brandon Kusek, Paul Bauer, Gator Schott, Garrett Irvine, Torri Dethlefs, and Shelby Behrendt. The chapter had some excellent members also receiving their American Degrees this year. The Ravenna FFA had the following 7 members receive their highest degree in 2010: Gavin Jager, Josh Albright, Candace Long, Lisa Grabowski, Seth Musil, Kody Urwiller and Luke Zinnell. Another trip to Hastings was taken by 31 of our FFA members. On November 10 these students traveled to Hastings to participate in livestock judging. Each member had to judge breeding and market swine, beef, and sheep. While the junior division just has to write down their order, the senior division has to give a set of oral reason to follow up on their placement. Both Jr. & Sr. teams qualified for the state contest to be held in April. The top individual in the Sr. division was Torri Dethlefs with a 5th place finish, and the top Jr. from Ravenna was Brandon Kusek with a 4th place finish. The chapter is off to a great start and look forward to all of the upcoming events to add to their experiences this year.

FFA Creed 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 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 on 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.

Northwest FFA Chapter The Northwest officer team jump started their year at COLT (Chapter Officer Leadership Training) in May. The state officer team conducted workshops on specific office duties. The team planned the agenda for the upcoming year and learned more about eachother. The team received first place in the opening and closing ceremonies competition on the second evening. Overall, we had fun bonding and getting to know eachother and by the end of the conference, we were all ROCKSTARS! Our FFA chapter members also helped out at the Nebraska State Fair Inaugural Parade. Governor Dave Heineman and Lieutenant Governor Rick Sheehy's banners were carried by Northwest FFA members. The chapter also had four members exhibit livestock. Garret Johnson won Supreme FFA Showman and division Reserve Champion Breeding Heifer. Other exhibitors were Baylee Laub, Karen Buettner, and Walker Johnson. The first State Fair in Grand Island was a success. In October, we had five seniors attend National Convention in Indianapolis. They attended sessions, workshops, and toured the industry. They also had the opportunity to make their own glass piece. They all had a fantastic time and the sto-

ries are still coming in. Northwest also had four members receive their American Degrees; Amber Frauen, Karen Buettner, Hallie Casto, and Sydney Paige. Congratulations Ladies! Fruit. Fruit. Fruit. That is all the FFA members heard for about a month. The chapter just wrapped up one of the biggest fundraisers of the year. In addition to fruit, members also sold meat and cheese combos, chocolate, cookie dough, and much more. A new item for the year was also added, Popcorn. Members worked hard at selling and proved to be successful. Look out for fruit sales next year! Finally, on November 10th, 17 members attended district livestock judging in Hastings. It started out as a cold November day, but finally warmed up. A big congratulations goes out to Jeff Hostler who placed sixth in the senior division. Our senior team was six points short from qualifying for state but much was learned in the process. Who knows, maybe next year.

How to find scholarships By EducationQuest Foundation Thousands of local, state and national scholarships are available – and many may match your criteria. But you’ll never know unless you do the research and submit the applications. Here are a few places you can look: • ScholarshipQuest at EducationQuest.org features over 2,000 Nebraska-based scholarships. After you create a profile, this online tool will match you with scholarships that fit your criteria. • Your guidance office is a place you should visit at least once a week during your senior year to check on local and national awards. • The college you plan to attend is one of your best sources for scholarships. Contact the colleges that interest you for a listing of scholarships and information about criteria, deadlines, and application procedures. • National scholarship search sites such as Fastaid.com, ScholarshipExperts.com, SchoolSoup.com, Scholarships.com, and ScholarshipMonkey.com. 2820 West Old Hwy. 30 • Grand Island, NE

• Other resources could include your coach, clubs and organizations, and your parents’ employers and civic organizations. Most scholarships are based on academics, but others are based on criteria such as community service, leadership ability, or talent in art, dance, music, or athletics. Some scholarships are based on financial need as measured by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Therefore, to earn scholarships, earn good grades, get involved in your school and community, and complete the FAFSA. Although applying for scholarships takes a lot of time and effort, the benefits might be enormous. If you spend 20 hours applying for 20 scholarships and receive $2,000 in awards, you just made $100 an hour! Follow these tips to increase your chances of earning scholarships‌ • Organize scholarships in deadline order and set aside time each week to work on them. • On the application, list your activities, awards, honors classes and volunteer or paid jobs. Track them using the Activities Resume at EducationQuest.org. • If an application requires a letter of recommendation, give the person writing the letter plenty of notice, a specific deadline, and a list of your accomplishments and activities. • After writing an essay, ask an adult (preferably an English teacher) to review the document for spelling, grammar and sentence structure. • Make sure the application is complete and submitted by the deadline or it will be disqualified. • Don’t ever pay for scholarship services! Talk to your guidance counselor or contact EducationQuest about the many free options available.

Corn trade has been mixed in choppy trade this week due to position squaring ahead of news on the ethanol tax credit and Friday’s USDA report. The weekly net change is steady on the December contract and March is up 1. The uncertainty surrounding the extension of the blender's credit has kept the market range bound this week. The issue has been confirmed to be included in the most recent legislature circulating through congress. Analysts are optimistic that it will pass this week, but it is also expected that the credit will be reduced from its current 45 cents to 36 cents. Additional fundamental news will likely be needed to challenge the previous highs even if the bill is passed, but a failure to pass the bill could result in another long liquidation phase as funds are still holding a large net long position. The USDA December Supply and Demand report will be released on Friday. Historically, this report is usually very uneventful as no supply adjustments are made, but end of the year position squaring could still lead to increased volatility. The average 2010-11 carryover trade guess is at 806 million bushels with a range of 672 to 877 versus the 827 million USDA November number. The weekly export sales were reported at 671,100 tons which was below expectations. It appears the feed wheat exports from Canada and other nations have slowed US corn sales. Hedgers call with questions.

Wheat trade has been higher this week due to follow-through chart buying. The weekly net change is 5 higher on the March Chicago contract, KC is up 15, and Minneapolis is up 27. Global quality concerns will continue to limit downside, but ABARES, the Australian USDA equivalent actually raised their wheat estimate to a record 26.1 million tons which was up 1.7 million for the previous estimate. They did, however, also reduce exports by 2 million tons as quality concerns will only allow a significant portion of the crop to be used as feed wheat. Informa also announced their updated Australian estimate this week at 26 million tons. The increased Australian production does likely limit the willingness of the USDA to drop world carryover estimates on Friday's report. The charts posted a downward reversal on Tuesday; the March Chicago contract finished 27 cents off the daily high. But limited follow-through on Wednesday negated the move and we remain in a sideways trade. The weekly export sales were only 535,500 tons which was within expectations. The trade is looking for a slight decrease in the domestic carryover number on the USDA report this Friday, but a small increase in the global carryover number. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has been lower in mixed trade this week. Profit taking by market longs has been noted for the light weakness. The weekly net change is 4 lower on January beans. January Meal is $4.50 lower and bean oil is 73 points higher on the week after three days of trade. Optimism surrounding the reactivation of the bio-diesel credit has been noted for the firm tone in the market with limited downside corrective action following the strong move back above $13 last week. Heading into the report on Friday, the trade is expecting an increase in the export usage number due to the bullish Chinese demand pace. The average trade guess for the new USDA carryover is 25 million below last month at a tight 160 million bushels. After the report the focus will continue to be on South American weather. Some rain fell over the weekend, which has limited upside this week. Long-term forecasts still remain dry which should be supportive. Soybean rust can also start to become a concern this time of year, but it generally needs to be wet for that to be a legitimate widespread problem. The trade has seen some long profit taking interest above $13 this week, but long-term resistance is up at the $13.48 November high. Support is down at $12.64 which is the 20-day. The weekly soybean sales were 671,000 tons, which was below expectations. Meal sales were nearly 200,000 tons and oil sales above 50,000 tons, so the product sales were both good. Demand remains good, so downside should be limited in the near term picture. The market needs to believe the South American crop is bigger than expected to justify any near term sell off back below our November lows. Hedgers call with questions.

Heartland Express - FFA District 8

December 9, 2010

Fall Semester Is Very Busy for Holdrege FFA Chapter The Holdrege FFA Chapter has had a very busy and productive fall semester. This year the chapter has 46 members. The Holdrege FFA Chapter Officer Team for 2010-2011 consists of President Logan Reed, Vice-President - Jolee Sturgis, Secretary - Ashley Frost, Treasurer - Nick Anderson, Reporter Michaela Gray, Parliamentarian - Clayton Nelson, and SentinelSeth Hald. In May, the officers attended COLT Conference at The Learning Center in Aurora where each officer learned about their specific officer position and developed ideas for the upcoming year. COLT gave each officer an opportunity to work with over 30 other chapter officers from across the state. At COLT, the chapter scrapbook earned a silver rating. In July, President Logan Reed and Parliamentarian Clayton Nelson and Mr. Moore attended Washington Leadership Conference, where they were able to tour many parts of the nation’s capital, work with FFA members from across the United States, conduct a service learning project, and meet with Nebraska Congressmen Mike Johanns and Adrian Smith. Some of the highlights included touring the United States Capital, a night tour of the National Mall and Monuments, and visiting the National Archives and some of the Smithsonian Museums. Also in July, Holdrege FFA Chapter members participated in the Phelps County Fair by providing a free watermelon feed and Test Your Well Night. Seven chapter members cut and served 26 watermelons at the free watermelon feed. The Test Your Well night allowed citizens to test their water for nitrate levels. This year the chapter tested twenty-five drinking water samples. The Holdrege FFA Chapter likes to start off the year school year strong with the Annual Kick-off Picnic. The picnic gives the new members and their families a chance to see what FFA is about and interact with the current members. The Alumni support group helps out by grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. A short informational meet-

ing takes place after the meal to start off the year. Each year the Holdrege FFA Chapter hosts a Farm Safety Camp for the kindergartners and first-graders of Phelps County. FFA members present demonstrations on a variety of farm safety topics. Large tractor and combine safety was presented using a tractor and combine donated by Fairbanks Implement. FFA members brought in large and small ATVs and demonstrated safe riding and equipment features. Members brought in large and small animals to teach the children about safe handling procedures and tips for strange animals. Grain bin safety and lawnmower safety were also safety topics, as well as the dangers of household chemicals. The local sheriff ’s department set up a demonstration that allowed the children to view a patrol car and the items used by a deputy. Each student went home with a t-shirt and a packet to help remind them about what they learned. This year the chapter members helped the FFA Alumni Support Group with a corn test plot. A tour of the test plot was held in September where those who attended toured the test plot, enjoyed a meal served by chapter members, and heard from each company representative about the corn hybrids exhibited in the test plot. The land and equipment for the plot was provided by local producers Lee and Darren Englund. Later in October, several FFA members helped harvest the test plot. FFA members helped by taking weights, moisture reading, running the weight wagon, recording data, and calculating yields for more than 24 different numbers which were entered in the plot. The test plot was a success generating $2,500 which was put towards the funds for the new school greenhouse. Freshman Jackie Schultz participated in the True Blue campaign through the Nebraska FFA Foundation. Jackie was selected to receive a new FFA Jacket through the program. Thank you to the many contributors from around the state who sponsor this program!

Holdrege had two other teams receive blue ribbons and one team received a red ribbon. The four members who competed at the state land judging contest traveled to Norfolk on November 3rd. Junior Nick Anderson earned a blue ribbon for placing 7th overall. Freshman Brenden Kreutzer earned a pink ribbon for placing 35th overall. As a team, Holdrege placed 13th out of 24 schools.

FALL SEMESTER IS VERY BUSY FOR HOLDREGE FFA CHAPTER

RED CLOUD FFA NEWS

Continued from page 12

Continued from page 13

IN. As part of the convention, the Holdrege FFA Chapter received its third consecutive National Chapter Awards Program Rating. The Holdrege Chapter was awarded a National 3 Star Chapter. The chapter also received a more prestigious award – a National Models of Innovation Chapter in the area of Community Development. Holdrege was one of only ten schools named as finalists in this category. This is the second year in a row that the Holdrege FFA Chapter has been named a National FFA Models of Innovation Chapter. Chapter members Seth Hald and Nicole Gerdes gave a presentation over the Holdrege FFA’s Community Development activities and were recognized on stage at the 2nd General Session. The chapter members also attended sessions where they listened to speakers such as Josh Shipp and retiring addresses of National FFA Officers. The members participated in workshops and toured the Elanco Health Training and Quality Center. The members enjoyed some free time by attending the Lady Antebellum concert and going to the FFA Career Show which featured over 400 exhibitors from numerous agricultural companies and businesses. In November, the Holdrege FFA Chapter competed at the district livestock judging contest in Hastings. Thirty-five of Holdrege’s Ag Education Program students participated in the contest. Holdrege’s Jr. Livestock Judging team placed fifth in the contest and qualified for state and will compete in that contest in April. Members of this team include Paige Garrelts, Bryan Denton,

Matt Becker, and Alex Hamling. Freshman Paige Garrelts placed 6th overall earning a purple ribbon. Bryan Denton and Matt Becker earned blue ribbons. The chapter also came home with 2 red ribbons and 8 white ribbons. In the senior division, Holdrege placed 11th. Members of the senior team include Jolee Sturgis, Nick Anderson, Eric Buettner, and Ryan Kuss. Individually Jolee Sturgis earned a white ribbon placing. The Holdrege FFA Chapter recently finished their fruit sales fundraiser which they do annually. Chapter members sell apples, oranges, pears, grapefruit, and mixed fruit boxes. They also sell meat and cheese combo boxes. The money generated from this fundraiser is used to pay for trips, FFA jackets, and leadership conferences. The chapter members will deliver their fruit sales in December, just in time for the holiday season. The chapter’s current project is funding a commercial size greenhouse. The purpose of building a greenhouse is to increase career and educational opportunities for the students at Holdrege High School through a modern, hands-on curriculum that utilizes real world production and agricultural business skills. The facility will contain all utilities, energy efficient cooling, heat system, and needed equipment for the production of two or more plant crops a year. Many of these products will then be made available to the public. The greenhouse project has been approved by the Holdrege School board and construction will take place during the spring semester. The house could be used this spring, but will definitely be

Farm Groups Push for Action on Estate Tax Reform By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent Two of Nebraska's biggest farm organizations are part of a national agriculture coalition calling on Congress to take action on estate tax reform during the lame-duck session. And the consequences of not getting estate tax reform passed could impact Nebraska farm families, accelerating the consolidation of family farms into the hands of fewer producers or investors, putting further strains on rural areas and pushing the cost of farmland even higher. Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., said it is "critically important" for Congress to "protect our family farmers and small business owners from a large estate tax set to come back into effect next year. "I support full repeal of the estate tax and will work to ensure a permanent and generous estate tax fix is passed this year, so that Nebraska farmers, ranchers and small business owners won't have to worry about this unfair tax," Nelson said. According to Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, the estate tax is viewed as a "political device to divide the electorate and

fund government programs." Johnson said NFU supports an estate tax rate of 45 percent progressively indexed to higher rates as the value of the estate increases. An exemption level of $4 million for an individual or $8 million for a married couple should be established, he said. "Stable and predictable taxes are necessary for planning and operating all private enterprises," said Johnson. "The uncertainty in the estate tax code has negative effects on small businesses as well as farmers and ranchers." The ag coalition is concerned that if Congress does not take action on the issue before Dec. 31, the estate tax will revert to a $1 million exemption level and a rate of 55 percent. With such a low exemption, as many as 13 percent of farms and ranches whose owners die could owe estate taxes next year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman said the estate tax is especially damaging to farm families. "Eighty-four percent of farm assets are real estate-based," said Continued on page 31

December 9, 2010

Centennial FFA Has A Busy Year Centennial FFA has had a busy and exciting year so far. We started off our year with a Burger Bash to recruit new members. We had our annual Farm Safety Day and Fall Harvest dinner. We also had 20 members attend National Convention in Indianapolis. On August 24th, Centennial FFA had their annual Burger Bash. At this time we welcomed new members and upcoming freshman. Also John Bader, former Centennial FFA president brought along three state officers to our meeting and they led us in some activities. The activities we did were tug-a-war, and elbow tag. On Friday the 24th of September, Centennial FFA hosted their annual Farm Safety Day. Over 400 students participated in the 14 different safety stations. At the different stations students learned anything from railroad safety to P.T.O. safety. The students also enjoyed the exotic animals brought on Friday. Some new stations added were hunter safety, grain dust safety, canine search and rescue, power tool safety, railroad safety, and

insect safety. Altogether Friday was a good afternoon with lots of fun and learning about agriculture. Twenty members from the Centennial FFA Chapter attended National Convention this year in Indianapolis, Indiana. They had the opportunity to attend many of the sessions and visit the career fair. Our Chapter got the Two Star Chapter Award. Also our advisor, Arne Anderson, received his Honorary American Degree. On Saturday, November 13, We hosted our annual Fall Harvest Dinner. This dinner shows our appreciation to our area farmers and businesses. It also included the freshmen earning their Green Hand Degree and a live auction. This is our main fundraiser for our FFA chapter. All of our events so far have been successful. Upcoming events for our Chapter include District leadership skills events, and we are hosting a Drug Free Assembly for our high school.

State Fair Trophy winners were Tanner Steingard, Rick Siebert, Megan Friesen, Mattison Hiebner, Brandon Friesen, and Justin Foster. The school year began fast with FFA Officers holding their annual Safety Day in the Ag Shop in late September, where 3rd - 6th graders were invited to learn about bike safety, ATV safety and about hazardous materials. Students also created safety kits for themselves. District Land Judging was held in early October. Leading the way and receiving blue ribbons for the Heartland FFA Chapter were Andrea Boardman (ninth overall), Matthew Hiebner and Aaron Jensen. Members receiving reds were Tanner Steingard, Ashton Kroeker, Casey Goertzen and Rick Siebert. White ribbons went to Jesse Nissen, Emily Ott, Daniel Quiring, Stephanie Stamp, Maelyn Huebert, Andrew Spader and Kasey Siebert.

Most importantly, it can save as much as a dollar a day per cow compared to feeding expensive hay. But, the way you manage grazing of stalks by your cattle can have a big effect on its success. For instance, maybe you have a goal of feeding as little protein supplement as possible while winter grazing. Then you must make sure you have enough acres so your stocking level can be light enough so cattle can select just the higher quality plant parts to eat. And whenever the grain and husks are gone, move to a fresh field. Are Corn Stalks Today Lower in Feed Value? – Many times I hear the following statement. My corn stalks don’t take care of my cows like they used to. Is there a basis for this claim or is it just imaginary. Two things might be happening here. First, stalks indeed might be different. And second, maybe the cows themselves aren’t the same as they used to be. For the most part, cows are larger today than they were twenty years ago. Larger cows need more forage and usually greater supplementation than small cows. A quarter section of stalks won’t carry as many cows as it once did. And even when stocking adjustments are made, if supplements aren’t also adjusted accordingly, cow performance still might suffer. Secondly, it is quite likely that stalk fields have changed. To begin with, modern combines are more effective at collecting grain than previously. We used to estimate that four percent of the grain would be left in the field after combining. Today the amount of grain left in the field is probably half of what we previously thought. Less grain means that cows will need supplement earlier. Otherwise cows will go out of condition along with eventual production capacity of their calves. The stalks themselves also might be less nutritious. Modern hybrids draw more nutrients out of the stalk and into the kernel. Genetic modifications for insect resistance and less lodging produces stalks that break down or digest less rapidly, making the stalks less palatable and lower in digestible nutrients. Consider carefully what kind of nutrition animals are getting from the stalk pasture so you neither underfeed nor overfeed expensive supplements. Be sure to provide salt, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin A free choice at all times. And once all the grain and husks are gone, cows will need about half a pound per day of an all natural protein to meet nutrient needs. Make wise decisions to get the most value from your corn stalks.

NFU Speaker Says Ag Concentration Decimating Rural America By Robert Pore, The Grand Island Independent Proposed Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) livestock marketing rules reforms would benefit consumers, independent family farmers and rural communities, said Mike Callicrate of St. Francis, Kan. Callicrate, along with state Sen. Cap Dirks and Daryll Ray, director of the Agricultural Policy Analysis Center at the University of Tennessee, were part of a panel discussion about the GIPSA reforms at the Nebraska Farmers Union convention in Grand Island Friday. Ray explained the GIPSA reforms, while Dirks related his efforts as a lawmaker to bring reform to livestock markets in Nebraska, such as addressing packer ownership of livestock prior to slaughter and mandatory price reporting by packers in the state. Callicrate, vice president of the Organization for Competitive Markets and an independent feedlot operator, said reform of livestock markets would benefit consumers by providing them more choices. "If the GIPSA rules are adopted and applied, there would be more competition in the marketplace, making meatpackers compete again and making retailers pay better prices back to farmers and ranchers," he said. Callicrate said it's about "...taking abusive powers away from very powerful players in this marketplace." "It gives consumers better prices with more choices of higher quality food," he said. The disappearance of competition in the livestock marketplace has put the four largest packers and retailers in the driver seat when it comes to controlling the livestock industry, said Callicrate. He cited several statistics as evidence that more and more of the livestock industry has fallen into the hands of fewer and fewer people. Callicrate said market concentration kills competition, as the four biggest packers control 88 percent of the market and the four biggest retailers control nearly 51 percent of the market. Along with impacting consumers, the growth of concentration in livestock markets has caused many small livestock producers to go out of business, Callicrate said. He said approximately 1,000 cattle producers go out of business every month and that 41 percent of U.S. cattle produc-

ers have gone out of business since the 1980s. Because of concentration, Callicrate said, producers have lost 20 percent of their share of the consumers' beef dollar since 1980, as more than 85 percent of the total capital investment on the consumer's plate is provided by the producer. The consequence of not reforming the system and addressing uncompetitive practices in the marketplace, Callicrate said, will "...cost consumers their food system and then they are going to become more and more dependent upon imported food." "But the real thing we lose as a country is that wealth creation base that agriculture represents," he said. "If we don't grow our own food, we don't produce the wealth that the land provides us that fuels our economy. We have to keep farmers and ranchers farming and we have to allow them to make a fair wage and that has not been done in many, many years."

"We have lost 40 percent of our ranchers in the last 30 years," Callicrate said. "We have lost 80 percent of our dairy farmers. We have lost 90 percent of our pork producers. And we are becoming more and more dependent on foreign food every day." Callicrate said that concentration and the resulting market power of the packer and retailer have taken away approximately 20 percent of the producers' share of what the consumer spends, or about $400 per head. "We have lost 40 percent of our ranchers in the last 30 years," he said. "We have lost 80 percent of our dairy farmers. We have lost 90 percent of our pork producers. And we are becoming more and more dependent on foreign food every day." Because of the loss of independent family farmers and the concentration of large specialized livestock operations in the hands of fewer and fewer producers, Callicrate said it has caused "... a major collapse of rural communities across America because of the lack of income to sustain themselves because the biggest and most powerful meatpackers in the history of the world are now extracting wealth and stealing livestock

from producers." That loss of small, independent farm families in rural areas has also created a burden on taxpayers to pick up the cost of essential operations in those areas. "Look, here in Nebraska, their whole tax base is disappearing," Callicrate said. "In St. Francis, Kan., our taxes went up significantly in this last assessment because we have lost so much of our productive tax base as it has been starved and just been put out of business and no longer exists in many cases." Callicrate said those who are left "pay a higher percentage of what they do have in taxes. In the end, it is a death spiral and there won't be anything left." Speaking at the Nebraska Farmers Union convention Friday at the noon luncheon was Gov. Dave Heineman, who was adamant about not raising taxes. But with declining state support, much of the burden to pay for essential services in rural areas falls on property owners who, because of the declining population base due to growing concentration in the agricultural industry, have had to pick up more and more of that financial obligation to support local communities. Small towns continue to shrink due to declining population and sales tax support and taxes on small businesses become less and less. With the federal government in an austerity mood as it tackles the federal deficit, lawmakers such as Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb., have put a self-imposed moratorium on federal earmarks back to the states that could help fund essential services to rural areas. With politicians and citizens saying raising taxes is off limts, rural areas will especially feel the pinch of this state and national austerity movement. What bothers Callicrate, as a result of concentration in the agricultural sector, is that the wealth generated by farming and ranching productivity is also being concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer large producers due to the lack of enforcement of federal anti-competition laws by regulators and the courts. He said the concentration of power and wealth in this country is a threat to America's free enterprise system. "It is the biggest threat to our economic and social well being and today and it has never been worse in the world," Callicrate said. "A monopoly and free enterprise system do not co-exist."

MORE FARM BILL DRAMA LIES AHEAD Continued from page 1 high, which is never the case. Johnson said one reason farm prices are high is the programs that support ethanol production in the United States. Johnson said he has some worries about continued support for various ethanol programs. A press release issued prior to Johnson's appearance on Saturday said he was calling on Congress to extend the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit during the current session of Congress. VEETC is a credit of 45 cents for every gallon of pure ethanol blended into gasoline. U.S. Sens. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., and Mike Johanns, R-Neb., are among a bipartisan group of senators urging lawmakers to extend the ethanol tax credit program. Another tax credit set to expire is the Small Ethanol Producers Tax Credit, where small ethanol producers are allowed a 10-cents-per-gallon production income tax credit on up to 15 million gallons of production annually. During his presentation, Ray said the farm bill could take a hit of about $20 billion because of various factors. He said there could be a loss of about $10 billion because of the 37 programs that would not receive an automatic extension with farm bill reauthorization. There could be a loss of another $4.5 billion because of a timing shift issue involving when money is spent and the budget year it is recorded. Plus, there is a potential loss of another $4 billion to $6 billion because of suggested changes to the standard reinsurance agreement, he said. Ray said people who are counting on an export boom to support farm prices are being way too optimistic. He said farm prices have risen because (1) U.S. population growth has increased domestic demand, and (2) higher crop production is needed

to meet ethanol mandates. He said the volume of U.S. soybean exports is going up in real terms, but the percentage of U.S. soybean exports as a total of world soybean exports is dropping. Likewise, Ray said, U.S. wheat exports as a percentage of world wheat exports has dropped from approximately 50 percent to less than 20 percent. Ray said the U.S. does have strong corn exports, but even corn exports as a percentage of world corn exports has dropped from 80 percent to 20 percent. Even if complete free trade was achieved globally for agricultural products, the impact would be less than expected, because U.S. agricultural products are different than other U.S.-produced products, Ray said. He said food is viewed as a national security issue for nearly all countries, and especially in countries whose people have gone hungry. "Most countries have gone hungry in the past," Ray said. That desire to maintain domestic production of food is one reason why even complete free trade might have less of an impact than expected. Ray said domestic political considerations are another reason why free trade will not necessarily result in an ag export boom. He said most politicians will want to provide a living for the people in their nations who are involved in production agriculture. Even if a nation is becoming more industrialized, politicians want to maintain domestic food production to ensure an orderly transition of people out of agriculture, Ray added. Finally, politicians want the assurance of domestic tranquility that often comes when a nation's agricultural producers are able to feed

their fellow countrymen, he said. Ray said many areas of the world have large land masses that potentially could be converted to agricultural production. That is especially true for Brazil, but there are also large potential areas that could be converted to farm production in the former Soviet Union, China and the savannah of sub-Saharan Africa. The potential for increased agricultural production in such areas is another reason to doubt future U.S. farm export booms, he said. Other nations also are likely to be able to increase agricultural production because of increased yields that come from using seeds and farming methods that produce drought-resistant and disease-resistant crops. Ray noted that President Obama has established a goal of doubling the value of U.S. exports within five years. However, he said there is reason to believe that same goal will not be realized for agriculture. He said purchases of agricultural products are not as price sensitive as for manufactured products. If the price of food drops, Ray said, people are not suddenly going to move from eating three meals per day to eating six meals per day. Likewise, when prices and profits drop for a manufacturer, it can respond to decreased market demand by decreasing from two shifts to one shift, Ray said. A farmer is in a different position because letting farm ground lie completely fallow is not an option. The farmer is usually going to plant some kind of crop on his land. All this, Ray said, argues for a farm bill that helps provide some type of price stability for agriculture producers, versus a bill that relies too much on traditional market forces.

By Sandra Hansen, The Scottsbluff Star-Herald A crisp, sunny morning welcomed participants to the annual SAREC Livestock Field Day, December 2, near Lingle. Topics for the morning included brucellosis research, Lowline Angus study of omega 3 supplements, lamb studies on ewe development, and replacement heifer development. Also discussed was the Wyoming Hereford Association bull test. Scott Keith with the Wyoming Business Council, and Jay Middleswarth, Goshen County rancher, explained how the Angus organization became interested in conducting a feed efficiency test at SAREC, and what they hope to get out of it. Keith said the Lyman, Wyo., Hereford group was interested in improving their herds, and believed the SAREC bull test could help them get in on the leading edge of technology. The state organization became involved, resulting in five pens, with eight head in each, from a total of six breeders. They come from Cheyenne, Lusk, Kaycee, Wheatland, Torrington and Veteran, Wyo. "It's a great opportunity for the Hereford Association," Keith said, noting that an animal health company will come Dec. 21 to do some DNA profiling, an additional opportunity for future development. The bulls will be offered for sale on the Internet next spring in a new venture. "It's kind of a bull eBay," Keith said of the proposed auction. Torrington rancher Jay Middleswarth said he had wanted to use SAREC in the past, but hadn't figured out the details, when the Wyoming Hereford Association opportunity became a reality. He said he really got interested in a SAREC test after the drought cut deeply into his profits. "I wanted some data to take to the stock show in Denver," he explained.

Results of a recent audit of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, the main contractor for checkoff-supported beef marketing efforts, are getting mixed reactions. The differences were on the table at Wednesday's Nebraska Beef Council Board of Directors meeting in Kearney. Some directors said the concerns identified during the annual compliance audit of NCBA by the Cattlemen's Beef Board were common errors or misunderstandings that are being resolved. They said the difference this year was that what has been an internal audit process was made public. "That's the reason you have audits is to find these things," said Director Mark Spurgin of Paxton. "... I think this audit was blown out of proportion." Others in the beef industry say the audit raised questions about how checkoff dollars are being spent. In an Oct. 19 letter to the Nebraska Beef Council, Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska Executive Director Destry Brown said a major concern is that checkoff dollars are being used in NCBA lobbying efforts, which violates the federal act that created the program. The Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board was established as part of the 1985 Farm Bill. The law requires CBB to contract with industry organizations for beef promotion, marketing, research and consumer education programs. NCBA is the largest contractor by far. According to CBB's fiscal year 2009 annual report, that contract was for $35.87 million of the nearly $42 million in CBB revenues. CBB gets 50 cents of each checkoff dollar collected by state beef councils - more than $3.5 million came from Nebraska in FY 2009 - and the full $1 checkoff paid by beef importers. The recent NCBA audit found that thousands of dollars were spent by NCBA staff on unauthorized purposes or without proper documentation. The ICON letter asked the Nebraska Beef Council board to immediately suspend the state's national checkoff contributions until additional NCBA audits are complete. "We want to be sure everything is on the up and up before we send it on," said Rod Gray of Harrison, an ICON member and Nebraska Beef Council director. The board took no action on the ICON request. Beef Council Executive Director Ann Marie Bosshamer was authorized to write a letter to ICON officials to acknowledge that the issue was discussed and ask for more details about a sentence in the ICON letter that says, "The money is being used (by NCBA) to defeat public policy initiatives viewed as critically important to many, if not most, of Nebraska cattle producers."

When asked by Director Myron Danner of Burwell what ICON officials meant by that, Gray said he believed it referred to NCBA lobbying, but he wasn't at the ICON board meeting at which the letter was approved. Bosshamer said CBB officials told her the NCBA audit issues have been addressed and a report will be sent to the CBB executive board by Dec. 10. It then will advance to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service by Dec. 22. After USDA officials have approved the report, it will be distributed to other CBB directors and state beef councils. The federal Inspector General's Office is planning a checkoff program audit in 2011. Beef Council Director J.D. Alexander of Pilger said that audit won't focus just on NCBA but can look at all aspects of the checkoff, even down to state councils. In another issue, Bosshamer said election results for four of nine board seats weren't confirmed yet. All the seats involved are outside of Hub Territory. Paper ballots from beef producers were returned by Nov. 15. Bosshamer said more than twice the usual number of ballots were returned in some districts. She expected to announce results in a day or two. In three of the four districts with elections, current directors had reached the two fouryear-terms limit: Spurgin, David Wright of Neligh and Ann Bruntz of Friend. Incumbent Dave Hamilton of Thedford was challenged in District 2 by Christopher Abbott of Gordon; there were two candidates for Wright's seat and three each in the districts represented by Spurgin and Bruntz.

Lean hog has been lower this week due to profit taking by market longs. The weekly net change is $.90 lower on the February contract and April is down $.75. Cash trade is called steady for the remainder of the week after pork carcass values stabilized on Tuesday due to higher loin sales. Cash trade has come up so the tone in the market is flat to higher. The weekly cold storage report continues to indicate inadequate supplies; net in-movement totaled 5.527 million pounds which was more than 3.6 million pounds greater than this time a year ago. But demand also remains good. On the February chart, the market appears to have found support at the 40-day moving average at $74.65. Resistance ranges from $75.80 to $76.20 which are the 20- and 10-day moving averages respectively .Hedgers call with questions.

Steers over 600 lbs sold steady to 2.00 higher. Heifers sold 1.00 to 3.00 higher. Prices reached levels unseen in recent memory and perhaps in history on some weight groups as buyers were aggressive for all weights and classes. A lot of light weight calves continue to go out of state to graze on available forage. Tight inventories of beef cattle have enticed buyers to shrug of high feed cost as they want to get possession of feedlot replacements while large offerings are available. Negotiated slaughter steers and heifers in Nebraska sold higher for the third week. Right around 66,600 head sold with dressed sales at 165.00 and live sales ranged from 101.00-104.00. Feeder supply this week included 64 percent steers, 35 percent heifers with the balance on bull calves, near 36 percent were over 600 lbs.

Jan. 11 Feeder 11745 11950

Live cattle trade was lower this week due to profit taking by market longs. The weekly net change heading into Thursday is $1.75 lower on the February contract and April is down $1.23. There was roughly a $3 drop from the highs early this week to the lows on Wednesday. On the chart, February support is now the 40-day at $103.60 then the 50-day at $102.95. Cutout values were firmer on Wednesday which helped the market find support. The choice finished the day up 16 at 164.87 and select was up 96 at 154.17. Light cash sales were reported on Wednesday so the bulk of trade for the week will likely occur on

Thursday or Friday. April cattle futures reached the $110 level which is a high mile stone. The action this week tells me we are likely going to stay volatile the rest of the year with choppy sideways action. The light sales were $101.

SAREC MEETS THE NEEDS...

FARM GROUPS PUSH FOR ACTION ON ESTATE TAX REFORM

cents a head per day. That's about as cheap as I can get it done." Dr. Steve Paisley, UW Extension beef specialist in charge of the tests, said producers and researchers are just now beginning to recognize the value of feed efficiency in selecting their herds. "We've never selected for feed efficiency before," he said, comparing cattle to cars. "We've always relied on what we see with the eye and on the scale. Feed efficiency is the next step, and we're going there. In the past we've always gone for the car that would go fastest for you, at six or eight miles per gallon. Now we need something more efficient, but I worry that we may over select, and get a tiny two-door." Paisley and SAREC initiated the GrowSafe system of measuring intake for research livestock, and find it is especially useful in the feed efficiency tests. "It's a great tool for what we haven't been able to measure for in the past," he said. Paisley congratulated the producers for participating in the feed efficiency test because, to date, there is no economic incentive to do it. He said results of these tests might lead to changes in that area. Other presenters were Dr. Dan Rule on the UW Lowline Angus steers, Scott Lake regarding replacement heifer research, state brand commissioner Lee Romsa discussed brand registrations, and assistant state veterinarian Bob Meyer gave an update on brucellosis issues within Wyoming.

Stallman. "When Uncle Sam comes to pay his respects, surviving family members without enough cash on hand may be forced to sell land, buildings or equipment they need to keep their operations going." Stallman said Farm Bureau is calling on Congress now to provide a permanent estate tax provision that would increase the exemption level to $5 million, adjust it for inflation and reduce the maximum rate to 35 percent. "As farmers and ranchers, we continue to stand by our goal of eliminating death taxes, which amount to little more than double taxation since the income is taxed first when it's earned and again when it is transferred to heirs," said Stallman. Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb., also supports full repeal of the estate tax. "The bottom line is that there should be no estate tax," Johanns said. "I have voted for full repeal of the estate tax, which unfortunately did not pass." He said he is willing to support the position of the Farm Bureau, "with a goal of supporting full repeal in the future." "Dying should not be a taxable event, and the hardship of grieving for a lost loved one should not be made worse by a financial penalty," Johanns said. "Congress must take action to prevent such hardship." According to AFBF, estate tax reform must also include a stepped-up basis, which limits the amount of property value appreciation subject to

capital gains taxes if the assets are sold. Because farmland typically is held by one owner for several decades, setting the basis on the value of the farm on the date of the owner's death under stepped-up basis is an important tax provision for surviving family partners. Stallman said that reverting back to a higher estate tax would not only hurt farm families, but also rural communities and the businesses that provide essential services to farm families. And, if families are forced to sell farmland to pay estate taxes, considering the price of farmland, it could further the consolidation of farms and ranches into the hands of fewer operators or investors. Earlier in November, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City released a survey of ag land values in Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Colorado, and parts of New Mexico and Missouri that shows nearly across-the-board increases. The survey reports that Nebraska and Kansas showed the biggest gains as a result of substantially higher farm income in the third quarter. The land value increases from a year ago in Nebraska averaged 9.4 percent for nonirrigated, 11.8 percent for irrigated and 5.1 percent for ranchland. "Further, when estate taxes force farm families to sell off land to pay the taxes, farmland close to urban centers that is sold can be lost forever to development," Stallman said.
