Sprouting industry Shelby County historical home to 18 seed corn companies by Emma Struve Western Iowa’s seed company boom years were documented in 2004 by an Earling farmer, passionate about area heritage and technological innovations in corn production. It all started with Steve Kenkel’s Oliver Row Crop 66. “The very first thing I did was this tractor, I restored it. It was my grandfather’s,” he stated. Kenkel said that after the tractor was restored, he thought he should have an implement to pull behind it during parades. He then restored a 1935 Oliver two-row, wire-check corn planter that belonged to his father. During the project, Kenkel discovered several old, cloth seed sacks – three of which were from Shelby County seed companies. He was struck by the inspiration to acquire all the seed corn sacks he could from Shelby County. The process included going door-to-door inquiring about the relics on the advice of another seed memorabilia aficionado, Curtis Norskog,

Timeline of hybrid corn pioneers in Shelby County Steve Kenkel knew there were many seed corn companies in Shelby County when he started research for “The Hybrid Corn Pioneers,” a book published in 2004. When he was finished, Kenkel discovered, investigated and documented 18 different companies. Most were started between 1935 and 1940. During his search for information, Kenkel amassed one of the largest collections of cloth seed

corn sacks in the United States, which includes at least one example from each of the Shelby County seed companies. For information about how to purchase “The Hybrid Corn Pioneers” – a publication replete with historical documentation and photographs of

from Willmar, Minnesota who pointed out that most small seed companies distributed their products within a small radius, sometimes within five miles of the original location of the company. While traveling around the county, sometimes accompanied by his kids, he was referred from family to family and eventually amassed enough information, sacks and photographs to put together a book, “The Hybrid Corn Pioneers,” originally printed in 2004. In an effort to preserve the history of seed corn production, Kenkel has purchased or been given and then restored a varied collection of implements and tools, which he presents at an open house field day in August at his farm, at fairs and other venues. Kenkel said about some of the people who have contributed to the collection, “They’re getting to the point in time where they want to get rid of some of it. They see that I’m taking the stuff and not just trying to make a fast buck but I’m sharing it with people and I restore it. They like that.” The collection includes: • Check planters as well as reels of check wire and rope • Hand-drop seed planters • “Single row planters” • More than 900 cloth sacks • Mechanized and hand crank seed corn shellers • Seed sorting and grading devices • Seed drying racks of at least 20 different permutations When Kenkel has finished restoring the machinery it is in working condition and he uses it in small demonstration plots on his farm where he grows and propagates examples from “300 years of Continued on Page 8

A time to plan for planting Stormy winter will create some challenges in spring by Gordon Wolf Although a deep blanket of snow and ice covers farm fields, spring planting should not be far from producers’ minds. Now is a good time to plan for changes in crop inputs, analyze yield data, and prepare for equipment needs, said R. Aaron Saeugling, Iowa State University Extension field agronomist based in Lewis (Cass County). John Holmes, Extension field agronomist based in Clarion (Wright County) recommended that producers finalize plans for individual fields, finalize hybrid or variety selection for each field, plan weed management programs, and plan for potential insect problems. “Now is an excellent time to read about new pests and their management,� Holmes added. If they didn’t keep records when they were harvesting last fall, producers can scan their memories to gather information to help with the decisions they make before heading into the field this spring. “It is not too late to look back on the fall harvest,� said Saeugling. “I think when considering spring planting, look at long-term averages for crop production issues as considered in an average year. We would not consider the last two springs normal in terms of planting, so consider these issues before making big changes in any cropping practice,� Saeugling added. Holmes recommended producers make notes on hybrid or variety standability and harvest concerns. “If weeds were a problem in an area, note the type of weed, the specific area, and control options,� he stated. “Take notes if corn hybrids had problems with diseases.�

The snowfall this winter will impact producers’ ability to work this spring. “The challenge this year may be wet field conditions, due to the amount of snowfall in most places,� said Saeugling. “Grain movement this spring will be slowed due to wet roads, to move grain from the farm to market, in most areas.� Holmes stated, “Both farmers and agronomists expect the spring to be wet due to snow cover. “ He added that producers can expect to see wet planting conditions and early season seedling disease problems. “Wet soils are easy to compact, therefore we agronomists are expecting to see more soil compaction than normal,� Holmes continued. “Wet soils often will lead to planting problems. Seed furrows won’t close properly or seed will be placed in excessively wet soil.� The agronomists had some further tips when planning for spring planting. Saeugling said, “One of the most overlooked things is to remember to adjust the planter for conditions at planting time, not simply leaving the setting from the past season.� He advised, “Remember to look at the average weather for a given area before considering a major shift in crop maturities based on last year’s experience. For example, do not plant a 100-day hybrid just to have lower moisture corn in the fall when you would typically plant a 110-day hybrid.� Holmes stated, “Many times farmers forget to consider soybean cyst nematode pressure when selecting soybean varieties. I’d recommend that they work with a local agronomist to determine current SCN levels.�

Increasing flexibility of ethanol co-product as animal feed is focus of ISU research Iowa State University researchers are working to safely increase feed use by cattle and poultry producers of a co-product made during ethanol production. The co-product, dry distiller's grains with solubles (DDGS), is rich in protein, oil and fiber. Because of the comparatively large number of ethanol plants in Iowa, DDGS are a relatively inexpensive feed source for livestock and are already used as a feed supplement in some livestock diets. The research by Mike Persia, Stephanie Hansen, assistant professors of animal science, and Dong Ahn, professor of animal science, is funded by the Iowa Power Fund. "Currently, people in the poultry industry will feed 5 or 6 and maybe 8 percent of the overall diet as distiller's grains," said Persia, whose research focuses on egg-laying hens. "What we're trying to do with the research is look at ways to safely increase that percentage of DDGS in the diets." Part of the research includes looking closely at any impact feeding higher levels of DDGS will have on egg quality. "The biggest area where there might be a change is in the yolk," he said. "DDGS is high in lutein and unsaturated fatty acids, which might change the yolk composition of fatty acids." Another area Persia is focusing on is how the DDGS will affect the waste products of poultry. DDGS are high in amino acids, which can break down into nitrogen in the chickens' digestive system and can be excreted. Excess nitrogen in the waste can led to increased evaporation of ammonia and can be an irritant that affects bird safety, human safety and the environment, according to Persia. "It's not as simple as putting DDGS in front of birds and saying 'Go at it,' because you might run into production and environmental impacts," said Persia. "It's about working it (DDGS) into a balanced ration and finding out where that maximum is without affecting performance, environment, product quality, and human and bird safety." Hansen, who is researching DDGS in cattle diets, says they already comprise about 20 to 30 percent of many feedlot cattle diets. Last year, when corn prices were increasing and DDGS prices were still low, that percentage went up to as much as 40 percent or more, she said. Producers don't use more of this low-cost supplement due to its sulfur content. Too much sulfur in a bovine diet can be toxic. "The problem in cattle is that DDGS have a lot of sulfur in them because ethanol producers use sulfuric acid in processing ethanol," she said. "We are looking into how much we can get into the diet without running into problems." Hansen says the industry is still trying to find the best mix for the best result and safety is one of the most important factors. Because of the risk to the animals, Hansen's research is first focused on developing methods to monitor sulfur levels in cattle. Her goal is to develop an easy-to-use, mobile test to determine when an animal is getting too much sulfur. "We are looking for things that a veterinarian could do out in the field to actually determine if an animal is having problems with sulfur or having some other problem," said Hansen. "Sometimes it is hard to distinguish sulfur toxicity from other problems that might be wrong with the animal. We are trying to do a better job of diagnosing." Once the health issues are better understood, Hansen believes a safe increase in the amount of DDGS included in cattle diets can be reached. Continued on Page 26

Commercials and cattle Here’s the problem with enjoying television when you are married to a farmer: every commercial related to farming must be accurate, or you risk having to sit through a half-hour speech about why the commercial is bad. For example, the Super Bowl Budweiser commercial featuring one of the Clydesdale horses and a bull. (I think it was a bull, but it could have been a steer. My television didn’t provide us with a good angle.) My eagle eyes didn’t catch that the breed of the calf at the beginning of the commercial did not match the breed of the bull at the end of the commercial. And, in all fairness, because of my status as a FARMER’S wife and not a FARM wife, I’m not expected to know that the breeds didn’t match. Nonetheless, I came up with a perfectly reasonable answer to the question of why the calf and bull were of different breeds.

Perhaps matching the markings of the calf and bull were more important to the folks at Budweiser than matching the breed. They probably didn’t want to take the year or so for the calf to grow to produce the commercial. Of course, my farmer husband wasn’t buying it. He still said they should have taken the time to have the same breed of calf and bull. Whatever. It’s a commercial. They are trying to sell you something. Does it really need to be completely and totally accurate? After all, 95% of the people watching the commercial won’t notice and/or don’t care. Here’s another example of the idiocy of television advertising: happy cows. (Warning: I’m going to rant for a bit now.) I have several problems with this campaign. First, who says that cows (and people) are happier living in California than anywhere else?

Granted, the sun, beach and warmth are strongly enticing me during this winter. But really do the California ad people really think that it is the happiest place on earth? (Memo: Just because Disneyland is in your state, it does not mean the whole state is the happiest place on earth.) Second, who came up with the whole happy cows make better milk deal? What New York loft-living, organic teadrinking yuppies are actually going to believe that line of, um, bull? (Pun intended.) It seems to me that television advertisers continue to dumb down their ads to get the masses of coast-living lemmings to purchase their products. As a side note, here’s another one that really irks my husband: Angus hamburgers. I’ve had them. I think they are tasty. However, my husband complains that the whole point of Angus beef is the marbling, and how can you “taste” the

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch

marbling when it’s ground up into hamburger? Again, I don’t care. I still love the hamburgers. Whatever happened to smart advertising? Ads can be both funny and thought provoking. The advertising community could try to educate the coast dwellers about the good, quality food that comes out of the area they fly over.

They could show the work from Iowa farmers that goes into putting food on their table. Here’s a couple ideas: A farmer’s wife uses a flashlight to bring her husband supper in the field during either spring planting or fall harvesting with the wife commenting about how she can depend on battery X to help her get food to her husband who is working 20-hour days so people in California can have their tofu. Picture a veternarian preg-testing a cow in the winter, then flipping to a scene of the veternarian using an anti-bacterial soap and saying that if he trusts the soap to clean him in his job, it will certainly work for anyone. People would get a little glimpse of the hard work and dedication of Iowa farmers and perhaps appreciate a little bit more that area they fly over. Or, they can just hire some talking frogs. They were good.

corn production,” which include traditional openpollinated corn varieties, early hybrids and modern “triple-stacked” hybrid seed. He retains and processes his own traditional seed in a converted seed shed pictured on the cover. Some items in Kenkel’s collection are very unique. He owns one of four corn planters known to be in existence that were built by George W. Brown, the man who invented and received the original patent for the devices. Another new addition is a hand-drop seed planter from the 1860s with solid wooden wheels. The planter would have been drawn by horses and operated by two people – one to drive the horses and the other to operate the seed-drop lever. During that time period, corn was planted on hills that were exactly 40 inches from each other. A field would have to be marked with a sled-like device in two directions perpendicular to each other and then on the third pass, this time with the planter, the seeds would be dropped where the lines crossed. It is important to note, Kenkel insisted, that if the implement designers and seed corn pioneers had not made the technological advances evidenced by his collection, farming could not be what it is today. The amount of physical labor required to produce a tenth of the corn per acre, compared to modern yields, is staggering, he continued. Those that are involved in the daily workings of corn, or any type of agricultural, production may tend to take the sacrifices of their ancestors for granted and those that are not involved do not know a thing about it. For this reason, Kenkel said, he maintains the collection. In the machine shed where Kenkel hosts the summer open house, the walls are “papered” with cloth sacks that were gently washed with cold water, dried flat and affixed to the wooden cross members. A primarily wooden, belt-driven seed corn sheller with a patent date that preceded the Civil War is something Kenkel said he has never seen

Graphic by Christy Welch

Steve Kenkel, seed corn production historian from Earling, explained that for the majority of corn production going back thousands of years, farmers planted “open-pollinated” seed. “What you would do is pick some of the best ears, dry it; and, during this time of the year when there’s not much else to do, get the shellers out, shell it, grade it, and that would be the seed for the next year,” Kenkel explained. The problem is that yield hovered around 40 bushels per acre. Great gains in production were not captured until agronomists implemented hybridization and propagated genetically controlled corn plants. The process begins by selecting superior plants then inbreeding at least two separate lines. These lines are then crossed together. The offspring is a “hybrid” with predictable characteristics. In the introduction to Kenkel’s book “The Hybrid Corn Pioneers,” he referenced a 1992 “Time Magazine” article that declared the hybridization of corn “to be one of mankind’s greatest achievements of the last 1,000 years.”

Iowan helps dairy farmers in Tajikistan by Elizabeth Ahlin, Omaha World-Herald When Griswold (Cass County) farmer Michael Perdue arrived at the dairy farm of Siroj Kodirov, he found poorly nourished cows, mismanaged food sources and little incentive among workers to improve the situation. "Really, it boils down to a lack of modern management skills," said Perdue. Perdue is not comfortable criticizing fellow farmers, but that's the reason he was in Tajikistan. Under a hot, dry sun - Tajikistan is like Phoenix in the summertime, Perdue said -- he spent days observing, examining and taking part in the farming routines at two different dairy operations. Perdue went there as a volunteer for a farmer-to-farmer program administered by CNFA, an international agriculture development organization. The program is funded through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which receives its money for farmer-to-farmer operations through the federal farm bill. Perdue grew up on a dairy farm, the same farm where he's raised his own children. But three years ago he was ready for a change. He sold his cows and built a home in the Republic of Georgia, which was part of the Soviet Union for much of the 20th century. Perdue and his family still farm some crops in Griswold, but they also spend time in Georgia, where they've turned their country home into a hostel. Perdue has long been enamored of the former Soviet republics, many of which are still struggling to find their feet almost 19 years after the fall of the U.S.S.R. It was that interest, and a desire to contribute, that led Perdue to apply for the farmer-to-farmer program. Tajikistan, situated between China and Afghanistan, was known as the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic until the Soviet Union fell in 1991. After that, its people spent years embroiled in civil war. While in Tajikistan, Perdue tried to offer his best advice to the dairy farmers, who were struggling to get their cows to produce enough milk. The cows suffered from poor nutrition, Perdue said. "Those cows did not give more than a goat. It was pretty pathetic," he said. "But if you saw what they fed them and how they managed

them, it was no wonder." At one farm, the cows were fed corn silage, which should be a good, protein-rich food, he said. But that corn silage was hardly worthy of the name. It contained more weeds than corn. "You were lucky to find little nubbins of corn in the corn at all," said Perdue. "That's simply a lack of resources. They need to use herbicides." The majority of land in Tajikistan consists of mountains and desert -- not particularly conducive to farming. Yet agriculture remains an important part of the economy, said Iowa State University professor Eric Abbott, who has worked with the World Bank and USAID to advance agricultural reform in Tajikistan. The country has lush areas in valleys. That highly prized land is heavily relied upon to produce cotton -- a cash crop for the country, but a poor moneymaker for farmers, Abbott said. Small farms run by individuals are new, after years of Soviet-run farm operations. Those farms were huge -- 10,000 acres to 20,000 acres -- and they operated in a top-down fashion, where farmers were employees. The farmers were told what to farm and what to sell, and

they didn't have a stake in the operations, Abbott said. Since the land was parceled out to individuals, many farmers have tried to branch out, to grow other crops that would be more profitable, but they have encountered harsh opposition, he stated. "Your first inclination is to say ‘why are you doing that?'" Abbott said. But he soon realized that the political forces behind cotton farming were strong. If farmers didn't produce a certain amount of cotton, their water might be withheld, he stated. The dairy farmers had some positive opportunities to get better nutrition to the cows. Alfalfa grows well in the region, and a liquid byproduct of vodka production is a good source of nutrition, Perdue said. But the farmers need help figuring out how to manage those resources. "They're not in a bubble," Perdue said. "They know the United States and other places have high-producing cows, crops, whatever. They're just trying to find out how to do that."

Iowa pork groups schedule regional conferences in March Iowa pork producers are invited to learn more about pig comfort, energy efficiency and producer profits at the 2010 Iowa Pork Regional Conferences scheduled for early March. The Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC), Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension cosponsor this annual series at different sites around the state. Mike Brumm, from Brumm Swine Consultancy Inc., will speak on two topics: ventilation and energy use on the farm. His presentation is entitled “The Dufus Factor at Work: Common Ventilation Mistakes.” Other speakers include local ISU Extension swine field specialists and a representative from Consumers Energy, which currently is part of a partnership with IPPA, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, ISU and other agriculture groups in helping evaluate on-farm energy use and reduce the cost of whole-farm energy audits for producers. Traditionally, this conference series has been

in February. This year’s dates of March 9-12 were selected to better fit producer schedules and the session time of 1 to 4:30 p.m. allows for more daytime travel. No cost is charged for those pre-registered at least two business days prior to each location date. Walk-in registration is $5 per person, payable at the door. More information, including a link to the program brochure, is available on the IPIC Web site at www.ipic.iastate.edu/events.html. To preregister, people should call IPPA at (800) 372-7675 or (515) 225-7675.

However, farmers can save 100 percent on fuel costs when equipment stays parked in the machine shed and a trip across the field is eliminated. A new publication from Iowa State University Extension can help farmers decide when tillage passes beyond a no-till management scheme will yield a return on investment greater that the additional fuel, labor and machinery costs. “Limiting Field Operations” (PM 2089B) is available to download from the Extension Online Store, www.extension.iastate.edu/store/. This publication is part of a series of farm energy conservation and efficiency educational materials being developed through the Farm Energy Conservation and Efficiency educational initiative, said ISU Extension program coordinator Jane Flammang. The purpose is to increase farmers’ awareness of opportunities for improving efficient use of farm energy. The initiative also will help farmers explore alternatives to reduce farm energy demand and to improve their farms’ overall profitability in a rapidly changing energy environment. Iowa State University Extension received a grant from the Iowa Energy Center to carry out the initiative. Extension and the Iowa Energy Center are cooperating with Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO), the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives, Consumers Energy, Alliant Energy, MidAmerican Energy, Office of Energy Independence and USDA in the effort.

Through the program, farmers can direct a $2,500 award to a local non-profit organization that’s important to them and their community. The program is intended to benefit non-profit community groups such as ag youth organizations, schools and other civic groups. Farmers can apply online or request a copy of the official rules of the award program at www.growcommunities.com, by calling 1-877-267-3332 or by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to America’s Farmers Grow Communities Project, 914 Spruce St., St. Louis, Mo. 63102. Farmers, age 21 and over, who are actively involved in producing a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton are eligible. The application period runs from now through February 28, 2010. The program is open to all qualifying farmers, and there is no purchase requirement. In Iowa, one winner will be drawn from each of the state’s 99 counties. Monsanto will announce winning farmers and recipient organizations they chose in March 2010. “Farmers in Iowa and across America work hard to feed, fuel and clothe our country and the world,” said John Raines, vice president of customer advocacy for Monsanto. “As a company whose only business is agriculture, we want to work together with farmers to help them grow their local communities through the America’s Farmers Grow Communities Project.” The pilot program is part of a broad commitment by Monsanto to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to society by reinvesting in local communities. The company also recently launched a national advertising campaign to build greater consumer awareness about the importance of U.S. agriculture, its economic impact and advances in preserving vital natural resources. In addition, Monsanto, as one of the sponsors of “America’s Heartland,” aired nationally on public television stations and RFD-TV, is helping educate consumers through first-person farm stories on the vital contributions of the American farmer. The program is in its fifth season.

anywhere else. When first in use, he theorized it was driven by horses and later a stationary hitand-miss engine or tractor. The implement had the capacity to accept ear corn, shell and sort the seed and finally release it in measured amounts into cloth sacks. Speaking of patent dates, “Before 1900 and back, everything that was made, they put patent dates on,” Kenkel explained. Each implement is accessorized with a plaque displaying some of the historical information about the item. Kenkel said he uses the patent dates to search the U.S. Patent Office records to find details about the implement. From there, Kenkel said, he can trace the maker and find out more historical information. Kenkel has been operating the family farm but will soon retire from that operation. He also works with water treatment in Harlan and recently received a promotion to superintendent.

Lean hog trade has rebounded this week due to profit taking by market shorts. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is $1.45 higher on the April contract and June is up $1.72. The February contract concludes trading on Friday. Cash trade should continue to dictate futures near-term, but packers are torn between shortterm slaughter needs and lackluster product demand. The February contract is still holding a $1.50 premium to the cash index so bounces may be limited. Processing margins have been ok, but unless cash improves significantly, it will be difficult to maintain rallies here. On the chart, we did confirm overhead resistance at 6940 which is

Cash trade has been slow to develop this week; asking prices are still firm at $89/$142, but bids have been poorly defined this week as packers struggle with their decision to adjust chain speed.

Wheat trade has been higher this week. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is 23 higher in Chicago, 21 higher in KC, and Minneapolis is up 13. Spillover direction from the row crops along with some short covering has been noted for the firm trade. The USDA report on Tuesday confirmed the poor fundamentals which will likely limit buying interest on bounces, but the trade is oversold. The wheat market has built a large short position over the last month so a quick short covering rally could emerge if the row crops can maintain a bounce. On the report, the new USDA carryover came up to 981 million versus 976 on the January report and the average trade guess of 973 million. The global carryover was up slightly to 195.86 million tons. As we have discussed, with the large carryover and huge stocks to usage ratio, keeping an attitude toward selling rallies or sitting in short positions appears wise. The weekly export sales will be seen on Friday this week. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade is higher this week following the lightly supportive USDA Supply and Demand report. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is 10 higher on the March contract and December is up 6. The outside market influence was supportive following the news that the European Central Bank would bailout Greece. Crude is $3.23 higher, the dollar is 46 lower, and the DOW is 79 higher. On the report, the 2009-10 corn ending stocks were reduced to 1.719 billion bushels versus the average trade guess of 1.748 and 1.764 on the January report. The world ending stocks were reduced 2 million tons down to 134.04 million tons. Brazilian corn production was left at 51 million tons and Argentina production was raised 2 million tons to 17.2. The next major news item will be the USDA Outlook Forum next Thursday and Friday which is expected to show big expected 2010 production due to higher acreage and yield expectations. This should limit upside, but the chart did post a reversal up on Wednesday which could promote a bounce. The weekly exports sales have been delayed until Friday this week due to severe winter weather on the eastern coast. Hedgers call with questions, remember the front board range over the past 6 months has been essentially $3-$4.25, new crop futures are still in the $3.90-$4. The fundamental picture is bearish looking forward, so at least consider some bigger percentage option protection now if you do not have a comfortable 2010 and some 2011 crop sold already, feel free to call us to discuss.

Soybean trade has been higher this week due to profit taking by market shorts and a lightly friendly USDA report. Heading into Thursday, the weekly net changes are 24 higher on the March contract and November is 12 higher. Meal is $5.40 higher and oil is 127 points higher for the week. The Supply and Demand report on Tuesday has been the main market mover this week. The USDA 2009-10 carryover was down to 210 million bushels versus the average trade guess of 219 million and 245 million on the January report, the range of guesses was 170-245 million. Brazilian production was increased by 1 million tons up to 66, but Argentine production was left unchanged at 53 million tons, so the global carryover remained virtually unchanged at 59.7 million tons. The USDA did raise the export demand slightly on the report due to some continued speculation that Chinese bean demand should remain strong ahead of the fast approaching Chinese New year holiday. Most market bears argue that this may have already been priced into the market and that Chinese demand could drop off sharply following the holiday. The weekly export sales have been delayed, but they are expected to be friendly on Friday. Big supply side expectations looking forward into 2010-11 should continue to limit upside, but we could see some short covering due to oversold conditions. Hedgers call with questions, but I believe you still need to consider extending the coverage you want to have in place, otherwise plan on sitting back and waiting for a rally at some point this year due to a new news/weather item.

Denison-Schleswig FFA team places fifth in national contest by Aaron Baughman, Denison FFA Chapter Reporter “Top loin roast double boneless from the loin of pork” would be the thought process of members of the Denison FFA meat evaluation team as they analyzed a cut of meat in a national event. Five members of the Denison FFA had the experience of competing in the National Western Meat Evaluation Career Development Event, CDE, in Fort Collins, Colorado. Sixteen 4-H and FFA teams competed in the event that was coordinated by the Colorado State University Agricultural Science Department. Participating teams had qualified through their respective state meats evaluation events. Activities of the event included a 20-point written test over the Yellow Pages, which is an industry guide to meat storage, processing, handling, cutting and preparation. Members had to study 140 retail cuts of lamb, pork and beef. Thirty cuts were displayed which had to be identified by species, wholesale cut and the correct industry standard retail name. Beef carcasses had to be evaluated for quality and yield according the USDA grading standards. One class of four lambs and a class of pork carcasses had to be placed according to muscle, trimness and quality. The wholesale and retail evaluation portion of the event included placing four hams, a class of beef loins and class of T-bones. Quality was the influencing factor in this part of the evaluation. Sarah Ahart, Lucas Deiber, Aaron Baughman, Alex Harm and Austin McMinemee spent many hours in preparation for the state and national CDE. Community assistance from Tyson Foods, Farmland Foods, HyVee and Arcadia Meats was beneficial and greatly appreciated. None of the Denison participants placed in the top 10 of the individuals in the contest. Austin McMinemee was 10th in the nation in beef carcass grading. “We worked hard to prepare for the activity,” said Sarah Ahart. “We were satisfied with the results.” Consistent scores by the Denison FFA team earned them fifth place overall in the national FFA contest. The Denison FFA Meats Team was

Pictured in front, from left, are Sarah Ahart and Austin McMinemee. Back: Aaron Baughman, Lucas Deiber and Alex Harm. The FFA Meats Team was also fifth in carcass placing, fourth in exam/meat formulation and fourth in beef carcass grading. Photo submitted fifth in carcass placing, fourth in exam/meat formulation, fourth in beef carcass grading. Not many FFA members can say that they participated in a national event. “Being in a national competition is exciting. At the state contest you are Denison,” commented Randall Kuhlmann, chapter advisor, “but in a national event, when they announce the results, you are Iowa.” “It was

fun talking to the Colorado State University animal science student that helped coordinate the contest,” commented Lucas Deiber, “and I enjoyed the mountain trips that we took.” Besides the competition, Denison FFA members enjoyed fine foods, sites of Estes Park, mountain scenery and the flight to and from Colorado.

Area’s largest ag Experience in 4-H leads to success expo coming to the Omaha Quest Center March 3-4 One of the Midwest's premier indoor farm events, the Triumph of Agriculture Exposition, will take place March 3 and 4 at the Qwest Center-Omaha, 10th and Capitol Avenue, just off I-480. The 44th Annual Farm and Ranch Machinery Show will once again be filled with the latest agricultural innovations, equipment and supplies with more than 900 exhibits for farmers, ranchers and their wives to visit all on one level of more than 200,000 square feet in the Qwest Center. "It's an excellent opportunity to see all types of short-line farm equipment, new products and labor and time saving ideas all under one roof," said Bob Mancuso, Sr., the show's producer. "The Triumph of Ag Expo is the best place for farmers to find answers for what they do control while taking advantage of the new technologies at the Expo, ranging from machinery to new plant varieties that are available." The farm show is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Advance free admission tickets can be obtained from exhibitors, county Extension agents, farm machinery and equipment dealers or at the Qwest Center-Omaha door. John Fonda, president of John Day Company and show co-chairman from Omaha, Nebraska, stated, “The Triumph of Ag Expo is always packed with lots of new improvements and helpful information. At no other time this spring will area farm operators be able to see this much farm equipment and technology on display.” The Triumph of Ag Expo offers visitors a hands-on experience with continuous demonstrations so those attending will be able to compare and evaluate quickly and conveniently, all under one roof, Bob Mancuso, Jr., the show director, said in addition to all the latest equipment, products and services, the Expo will offer seminars, craft items and displays, antique farm tractors and equipment, and special programs. The Triumph of Ag Expo is a charter member of the North American Farm Show Council, is produced by Mid-America Expositions, Inc. and is sponsored by the Mid-America Farm & Ranch Machinery Council.

4-H leads to multiple paths of success. Just ask Terrence (Terry) Tobin. Tobin has an extensive background with 4-H and is still making use of the skills he learned as a 4-H'er in his current position as director of Principal Enterprise Capital in Des Moines. “Joining 4-H was just what you did in our family,” said Tobin. “My parents even met through 4H.” Tobin, from New Market (Taylor County), Iowa, was a 4-H member throughout his youth. He served as a state 4-H officer during that time. Tobin credits leadership and citizenship skills that he learned through 4-H for his successes in life. What Tobin gained from 4-H still stands today. In a 2008 study by Iowa State University Extension, it was found that after youth had participated in 4-H, 73 percent improved their communication skills. Additionally, 67 percent increased their leadership skills. Of the same 4H members, 80 percent improved their citizenship skills as well through 4-H involvement. “4-H provides knowledge and experiences in a manifold of areas,” said Tobin. Tobin remains a strong believer in giving back to his community, a value instilled through his 4H involvement. Tobin is not alone; a recent study by the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University found 4-H’ers are 25 percent more likely to contribute to their communities than other youth. Tobin has served on a variety of boards including the Iowa State University Foundation Board of Governors and Department of ISU Political Science Alumni Advisory Committee. Tobin says a highlight of his adult 4-H career was serving on the Iowa 4-H Foundation Trustees board for six years. He served as president of the board during his term and led the Imagine Together Capital Campaign, raising nearly $2.5 million to support 4-H. “It was a way to give back to all 4-H has given me personally and my family,” said Tobin of his time with the Iowa 4-H Foundation. “I was lucky to work with a very talented group of people on the Foundation Board,” said Tobin. “4-H is many things to many people. It helps our young people to build community leaders for tomorrow,” said Tobin.

The research agrees with his statement; Iowa 4-H’ers' survey responses show solid evidence that youth involved in 4-H develop the characteristics of competent, caring, contributing, confident, connected and capable individuals. About the Iowa 4-H Youth Development Program 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, serving more than six million young people across America with programs in leadership, citizenship, communication and life skills. One in five Iowa school-age youth are involved in 4-H. In Iowa, 4-H Youth Development is headquartered at the Iowa State University campus in Ames. 4-H is supported by federal, state and county funding, private grants and donations, and fees. For more information about joining 4-H, contact a local Iowa State University Extension county office at www.extension.iastate.edu/ouroffices.htm or visit www.extension.iastate.edu/4H.

Troubling harvest leads to planting challenges by Emma Struve Even looking ahead to spring, farmers are haunted by last year’s late, wet and sometimes incomplete harvest. About four percent of Iowa’s corn crop – about 500,000 acres – remains in the field, in most places buried under inches or feet of snow.

Iowa State University Extension Corn Agronomist Roger Elmore speculated late in December, “If little snow occurs and wildlife damage is minimal, stalks may remain upright, shanks retain ears and yields will be little affected by waiting until spring to harvest.” Field Agronomist Mark Licht, Carroll, noted, however, “Since Roger wrote this we’ve had an

ice storm and two additional blizzards…a bad winter with lots of snow and ice, coupled with deteriorating plant health, losses could be as high as 65 percent.” Elmore continued that producers should expect volunteer corn during the 2010 season due to “harvest losses associated with the late harvest.” He cited a study by Bob Hartzler, ISU Extension weed specialist, that found “a single volunteer corn plant per 10-foot row can reduce yield by up to 1.3 percent in corn and even more in soybeans.” The potential for loss is demonstrated by the following fact: “It takes two kernels per square foot to add up to one bushel per acre harvest loss; even a small harvest loss could create a much larger problem of yield robbing volunteer corn.” Elmore wrote. An aside, he added, “Ears with less grain will likely remain attached to the stalk more than heavier ears – an interesting advantage for low yields!” Licht commented, “Much of the area is at or near field capacity for soil moisture…this spring there is a high probability of flooding due to snowmelt. “A fully loaded combine can have as much as 20 tons per axle. This is enough under wet conditions to create compactions below the point there tillage can be a remedy.” The challenges presented to farmers by corn still standing in the field were aptly summed up by Aaron Saeuglin, field agronomist in Lewis, “Stalk quality has deteriorated so dropped ears will likely be common. Poor stalks also lead to lodged corn so harvesting will be slower…No tillage will have been done and soils will be wet. I expect those fields to be planted later than normal.”

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey encouraged eligible farms to apply for the 2010 Century and Heritage Farm Program. The program is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the Iowa Farm Bureau and recognizes families that have owned their farm for 100 years in case of Century Farms and 150 years for Heritage Farms. Farm families seeking to qualify for the Century or Heritage Farms Program must submit an application no later than June 1, 2010. Applications are available on the Department’s Web site at www.IowaAgriculture.gov by clicking on the Century Farm or Heritage Farm link under “Hot Topics.” Applications may also be requested from Linda Rosky, coordinator of the Century and Heritage Farm Program via phone at 515-281-3645, e-mail

at Linda.Rosky@IowaAgriculture.gov, or by writing to Century or Heritage Farms Program, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Henry A. Wallace Building, 502 E. 9th St., Des Moines, IA 50319. Applications must be postmarked no later than June 1. The 2010 Century Farms Program ceremony will likely take place at the Iowa State Fair on Tuesday, August 17 and the Heritage Farms Program ceremony will likely be Thursday, August 19. Last year 297 Century Farms and 66 Heritage Farms were recognized. As a result, more than 16,500 farms have been recognized through the Century Farm program since it was created in 1976. The Heritage Farm program was created just three years ago and has recognized 392 farms.

Iowa Farm and Ranch

The free trade by Brian Hoops The vast majority of our clients are interested in options and low risk option strategies. Here is one strategy that is not used often enough; it is called the free trade or the zero risk trade. For example, let’s assume you want to purchase a soybean call option because you have a bullish outlook for this market. You want to limit your risk in the trade so you elect to buy a 1000 July call option for 40 cents. Now you have a bullish position with risk limited to the 40 cents you paid for the option. Let’s assume you were correct and soybeans rally to $10.60 and your call is now in the money. You can now sell a 1100 July out of the money call for 40 cents and your account is credited with the 40 cents, offsetting the 40 cents you paid for the long call option you purchased. From this point on, you have zero risk on your initial investment and still have profit potential up to the 1100 strike price of the out of the money call. Your breakeven point is now locked in, as long as soybeans close above the 1000 strike price, you will make money on the trade, with your worst case scenario of losing zero. Here is another example, this one using put options. Let’s assume you have a bearish outlook for lean hogs, thus you purchase a June 70 put option for $2.00. Now you have a bearish position with risk limited to the $2.00 you paid for the option. Let’s now assume you are correct and lean hogs trade lower and your put option is now in

the money. You can now sell a 60 put option for the same $2.00 you paid for the put and your account is credited with the $2.00. From this point forward, you have zero risk on your initial investment and still have profit potential to the 60 strike of the out of the money put option you sold. Your breakeven point is now locked in, and as long as lean hogs close below the 70 strike price, you will make money on the trade, with the worst case scenario of breaking even. The free trade is a great way to take the emotions out of trading and that can help you stay the course in the trade until your profit objective is met. Free trades can be made as conservative or as risky as you choose. For example, you can sell options different strikes out of the money, depending upon how much profit and how much risk you are willing to assume or you can sell multiple options to offset your option purchase. If you would like to discuss this strategy in more detail, please feel free to contact our office. Brian Hoops is president and senior market analyst of Midwest Market Solutions, Inc.

ISU horticulture student researches printing messages on apples Apples imprinted with messages or logos could be a specialty product for Iowa’s apple growers, according to Iowa State University horticultural research. Brandon Carpenter, a junior majoring in horticulture, conducted the project with the supervision of Gail Nonnecke, University Professor of Horticulture. Placing food-grade stickers on apples blocks sunlight to form the message while the rest of the apple’s skin turns red with light exposure. Bags cover the apples prior to applying the stickers to limit light to the fruit and to reduce damage from disease or insects. Carpenter began the project last spring by covering 95 developing apples with double-layered paper bags made especially for producing apples.

He was allowed to use apple trees located at Iowa State’s Horticulture Research Station near Ames where he worked as an intern. Later in the growing season, he placed stickers on 35 of the apples. At harvest, about half of the apples were judged good enough to be sold. “This may seem like a low percentage, but I believe I learned enough to reduce losses in the future. I also believe this would be a feasible practice in Iowa orchards,” he said. Nonnecke said apple imprinting could provide a specialty product for orchardists to enhance the marketing of fruit baskets and gift boxes. “The practices are easy to adopt to Iowa apple cultivars,” she said. “Fruit growers interested in producing imprinted apples should experiment to find the best procedures for their orchard.”

Catch this current: one 4-H’er’s electric story Tymothy Wood is a lot like other high school seniors looking forward to the future. However, Wood has a plan, a very focused plan that he is passionate and confident about. “Without 4-H I would have never discovered what I like to do,” said Wood. “4-H has given me great insight on what my interests are and what I want to do with college.” In a 2009 study, the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University found that 4-H youth had higher grades than other youth, and 4-H’ers expectations to go to college also were higher. “I want to be on the cutting edge,” said Wood. The nine-year 4-H member, from Tabor (located in Fremont and Mills counties) plans to attend Iowa State University in fall 2010 to major in Electrical Engineering with a focus on green energy. Additional findings in the Tufts University study show that 4-H youth are more likely to participate in science, engineering and computer technology programs and plan to pursue careers in these areas than other youth. Wood has been a part of several project areas within 4-H, including food and nutrition and photography. However, he credits a 4-H conference stay in the Iowa State University residence halls for developing his passion for engineering. “It was really hot in the dorms, so I started looking for ways to cool the place,” said Wood. Knowing that his parents wouldn’t approve purchasing an air conditioner, Wood designed one. And the ball just kept rolling from there. For example, he also designed a solar-powered charger. “I would leave the solar panel out in the sun all day and then bring it in at night to charge my cell phone and iPod,” said Wood. This 4-H project received recognition from the Los Angeles Times. Wood also has developed his leadership skills through 4-H involvement. He is not alone; Iowa 4-H’ers improve their leadership practices by 72 percent through 4-H involvement, according to a 2009 Iowa State University Extension study. “Serving on State 4-H Council has been a huge step up,” said Wood. However, Wood has enjoyed the chance to meet other youth from across the state. Wood’s primary role on the state council is on the financing committee. The finance committee oversees the 4-H’ers for 4-H campaign. This campaign receives $2.75 from each 4-H member’s dues and reinvests that money into 4-H. Nearly $34,000 is raised through this campaign every year, and the money helps fund the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference and 4-H camps across Iowa. “It’s really exciting to see their money working for them,” said Wood of the 4-H’ers for 4-H campaign. “4-H is a great opportunity that doesn’t come around very often,” said Wood. “It is fun way to get to know yourself and meet new people.”

Iowa Farm and Ranch - Iowa Pork Producers Association

February 2010

Taylor County pork producers receive 2009 Master Seedstock Award A farm couple from Clearfield in Taylor County was selected by the Iowa Purebred Swine Council to receive its 2009 Master Seedstock Award. Doug and Priscilla England received the award during the January 27 Iowa Pork Congress Banquet at the Des Moines Marriott. The Englands raise Berkshire hogs for Eden Farms Berkshire Pork. Doug has been in the pork business for 30 years and has spent 26 years in the seedstock industry. In 2008, 48 litters were farrowed to meet customer demand throughout the year. Nearly all of England's

seedstock sales are to producers who require high quality pork to fill their niche orders. The primary focus of the pork enterprise is to improve productivity and muscle eating quality. The 2009 Master Seedstock Award winners' prowess as purebred producers has been noticed in the show ring at the Iowa State Fair. Doug earned the Premier Exhibitor Award in 2007 and he showed the Reserve Grand Champion boar and received the Reserve Premier Sire Award. Doug and Priscilla work together as a production team and he receives chore help from

Priscilla, which allows him to devote time to serving on boards and committees. The Iowa Purebred Swine Council has sponsored the Master Seedstock Award since 1958. The purpose of the award is to recognize significant contributions to the Iowa and national purebred industries and for evidence of genetic improvements within their selected breeds for the benefit of Iowa, the nation and, in many cases, internationally.

Carroll County producers receive named IPPA’s top environmental stewards Two brothers and pork producers from Carroll County were named Iowa's top environmental stewards for 2009 by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. IPPA presented the 2009 Environmental Steward Award to Peter and Aaron Juergens from Dedham during the 2010 Iowa Pork Congress Banquet January 27 in Des Moines. The Juergens brothers became owners in the family pork operation in 2006 when they purchased three finishing sites in rural Carroll County. It's their Ranch Creek finishing site that was nominated for the award. The building houses 2,400 head of hogs. The Juergens family has a 5,500-head farrow-tofinish enterprise that produces 150,000 hogs annually. Twenty acres of the Juergens farm are in the CRP program to provide habitat for pheasants and deer and to control soil erosion and improve water

quality. Nutrients from the Ranch Creek facility are injected in the 100 acres of crop ground surrounding the site and with the help of aerobic and anaerobic neutralizer products, 100 percent of the corn crop's nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium requirements are met. Peter and Aaron have worked to develop innovations to control odor and gas emissions at Ranch Creek. Their Environmental Control System controls odor and gas emissions from their barns by treating the manure pits, the air in the building and the air that exits through pit fans. By limiting particulate matter and knocking down gases, the system drastically reduces odor in and around the operation. The brothers continue to work with university specialists and others to research and document the affects of the system, which also has decreased phosphorous levels in the manure samples taken from the pits.

The Juergens recognize the importance of sharing their story with others and representing the pork industry as producers who care about the natural environment and surrounding community. They also believe in creating a healthy and happy environment for their neighbors, employees and the animals. The Environmental Steward Award was established in 2007 by the IPPA Environmental Committee to recognize pork producers who go above and beyond in environmental stewardship. The selection committee judges nominations on the producer's manure management, soil and water conservation practices, air quality strategies, wildlife habitat management, and environmental management innovations. The selection committee consists of the IPPA Board of Directors, the IPPA Environmental Committee, Iowa State University Extension and Pheasants Forever.

Iowa Farm and Ranch - Iowa Pork Producers Association

2010 youth representatives chosen at annual Iowa Pork Congress Three new youth representatives were chosen to serve as ambassadors for the pork industry in 2010 by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. The Iowa Pork Queen, Iowa Pork Princess and Iowa Premier Pork Youth Ambassador were announced Wednesday night, January 27, at the Iowa Pork Congress Banquet in Des Moines. Natalie Ostheimer from Hardin County was crowned the 2010 Iowa Pork Queen. The Iowa Falls native is the daughter of James and Rhonda Ostheimer and is currently attending Ellsworth Community College. Kristen Hora of Washington County is the 2010 Iowa Pork Princess and is a senior at Highland High School. She is the daughter of Tom and Mary K Hora of Washington. Ostheimer and Hora were among nine county pork queens competing for the 2010 IPPA crowns. Sarah Pakala will serve as the 2010 Iowa Premier Pork Youth Ambassador. She is the daughter of Lynn and Gayl Pakala of Dike in Grundy County. Pakala is currently a student at Iowa State University where she is majoring in agricultural studies. Pakala was one of five young adults who served as ambassadors for their county pork associations and competed for the IPPA ambassador role. All of the contestants were judged on their interviewing and communications skills, poise, presentation and overall knowledge of the pork industry and Iowa agriculture. The three youth will serve as representatives of the Iowa Pork Producers Association and assist with various pork promotional and educational activities throughout the year. The new Iowa Pork Queen and the Iowa Premier Pork Youth Ambassador each received a $2,000 scholarship and the Iowa Pork Princess earned a $1,000 scholarship from the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

Lyon County farm couple earn highest Iowa pork producer award The highest honor the Iowa Pork Producers Association bestows on a pork producer is the Pork All-American Award. The recipients for 2009 were Mike and Sarah Ver Steeg of Inwood in Lyon County, who received their award January 27 during the 2010 Iowa Pork Congress Banquet at the Des Moines Marriott Hotel. The Ver Steegs have an 850-sow, breed-to-wean operation with all of the weaned pigs going to Mike's father, Dr. Gene Ver Steeg, for finishing. Mike and Sarah's sows produced more than 2,050 litters in 2008 with more than 21,200 pigs weaned and moved off-site to Gene's finishing facilities. Production increased over the past year, which demonstrates quality care and the genetic improvements the Ver Steeg's have incorporated. In addition to the hog operation, Mike and Sarah farm 1,350 acres of corn that is fed to the

livestock or sold to Gene for feeding to the finish pigs. Named Master Pork Producers for 2004, the Ver Steegs and their three children are active church members and involved in community projects. Mike has filled several positions in their county pork organization, as well as the Iowa Pork Producers Association, and received numerous awards. Mike and Sarah are certified in the pork industry's Pork Quality Assurance® Plus program and they have their site registered in USDA's National Animal Identification System. The IPPA Pork All-American award was established in 1970 to honor young producers who have established themselves as community leaders and successful and dedicated businesspersons. The recipient must be a Master Pork Producer and less than 40 years of age.

13 honored as 2009 Master Pork Producers The 68th annual class of Master Pork Producers was recognized by their peers for excellence in pork production at the 2010 Iowa Pork Congress Banquet in Des Moines on January 27. The coveted brass belt buckle, emblematic of the award, and a certificate of achievement were presented to 13 Iowa pork producers for 2009. All of the award winners were nominated by their peers and neighbors and are recognized for their expertise in their segments of the production cycle and understanding of current industry issues, quality assurance, animal identification and well-being and their production efficiency. Those honored as 2009 Master Pork Producers were: - David Hoogendoorn, Inwood, Lyon County - Gregg and Sandy Mattson, Alta, Buena Vista County - Myron, Wayne and Paul Pingel, Aurelia, Cherokee County - Lloyd, Norma and Curt Winters, Hull, Sioux County

- Daniel Ulfers, West Bend, Kossuth County - Wayne Watts, Clarion, Wright County - Mike Williams, Williams, Hamilton County - Dean and Linda Frazer, Conrad, Grundy County - Aaron and Trish Cook, Winthrop, Buchanan County - Ron and Elizabeth Juergens, Carroll, Carroll County - Brad and Joyce Moeckly, Elkhart, Polk County - James and Sandi Kopriva, Clutier, Tama County - Dan and Rachel Berdo, Washington, Washington County The Iowa Pork Producers Association and Iowa State University co-sponsor the Master Pork Producer program, which began in 1942, to demonstrate the character and breadth of Iowa pork production.

INCREASING FLEXIBILITY OF ETHANOL CO-PRODUCT... Contined from page 4 "We want to maximize the inclusion rates of DDGS so it can be most economical for the producer and still produce their best product," she said. Increasing the use, and potentially the price, of DDGS as a feed source could help ethanol producers realize better profits. Since the ethanol industry is still fairly new, Persia stated that feeding cattle and poultry the ethanol co-product DDGS is still not a science as they learn more and more about the feed ratios. The researchers said one of the biggest hurdles is the variability in DDGS. The makeup of the DDGS varies in the percentage of fiber, oil, protein and sulfur from ethanol plant to ethanol plant and even within the same plant on different days.

Dry manure applicator certificate workshops offered Iowa State University Extension will offer a three-hour manure applicator certification workshop for dry manure operators on different dates and locations in February 2010. The certification workshop is for both confinement site manure applicators and commercial manure applicators who primarily apply dry manure. “The information in this workshop will benefit not only those needing certification, but anyone who uses poultry manure as a fertilizer source,” said Angie Rieck-Hinz, coordinator of the Manure Applicator Certification Program. “Producers interested in best management practices to get the most from the manure as fertilizer should stay current on recent research results looking at poultry manure nutrients.” Workshop topics will include land application rules, new rules, stockpiling requirements, poultry manure water quality research, and a look at some prototype equipment for “banding” dry manure.

The workshops are free to attend and open to all. Applicators will be required to submit certification forms and fees to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to meet manure applicator certification requirements. Each workshop will begin at 1 p.m. Register for one of the workshops by calling the number listed with the selected site. Workshop locations and dates are: - Feb. 16, Washington County Extension Office, Washington, (319) 653-4811 - Feb. 17, Ellsworth Public Library, Ellsworth, (515) 832-9597 - Feb. 19, Heartland Museum, Clarion, (515) 532-3453 - Feb. 22, Buena Vista County Extension Office, Storm Lake, (712) 732-5056 - Feb. 23, Greenfield Chamber of Commerce meeting room, Greenfield, (641) 743-8412

Iowans appointed to National Pork Producers Delegate Body The following Iowans were appointed to the 2010 National Pork Producers Delegate Body to serve a one-year term: Timothy J. Schmidt, Mark Meirick, Bryan K. Karwal, David D. Struthers, Stephen J. Burgmeier, Joel D. Van Gilst, Heather Lindberg-Hora, Rodney G. Dykstra, Howard T. Hill, Chad R. Keppy, Steven L. Kerns, Gregory R. Lear, Curtis D. Meier, David E. Moody, Oliver E. Moody, Dale G. Reicks, Marvin J. Rietema, Jamie M. Schmidt, Max S. Schmidt, Norman R. Schmitt, Gregory J. Schroeder, Leon C. Sheets, Derrick D. Sleezer, Scott W. Tapper, Bill J. Tentinger, Donald H. Toale, Eugene D. VerSteeg, John E. Vossberg, John P. Weber, and Todd A. Wiley. Throughout the nation, 154 pork producers and six importers were appointed to the Delegate Body. They were selected from nominees submitted by state pork producer associations and importer groups. The delegates will serve a one-year term. The Delegate Body will be seated during the March 4-7 National Pork Industry Forum in Kansas City, Missouri.

Established under the Pork Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act of 1985, the Delegate Body and the National Pork Board have implemented a national program designed to improve the pork industry's position in the marketplace. USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service oversees operations of the Delegate Body. Representation on the Delegate Body is based on annual net assessments collected on sales of domestic hogs within individual states, with a minimum of two producers from each state. States have the option of not submitting nominees. Delegates meet annually to recommend the rate of assessment, determine the percentage of assessments that state associations will receive and nominate producers and importers to the 15-member National Pork Board. The program is funded by an assessment currently set at 0.40 percent of the market value of all hogs sold in the United States. An equivalent amount on imported hogs, pork and pork products is also collected.

The survey says: Love of farming beats economic factors in decision to farm Iowa farmers say their adult children who chose to farm did so because they love farming and the quality of life that it entails. But among farm children who selected other occupations, economic factors played a dominant role, according to data from the 2009 Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll. “To farm or not to farm often isn’t an easy choice for the children of Iowa farmers,” said Iowa State University Extension Sociologist J. Gordon Arbuckle Jr., who co-directs the annual survey with ISU Extension Sociologist Paul Lasley. “We asked farmers with adult children to share their thoughts about the factors that influenced their kids’ decisions to either become farmers themselves or to follow another career path,” Arbuckle said. “Farming is an economically challenging and often stressful occupation, and what we found was people don’t go into farming to make money, for the most part. Quality of life really figures strongly in decisions to farm.” Many farm families have multiple children, Arbuckle noted, “and not all families have children who are interested in or able to enter farming. But we thought it fairly encouraging to find that at least 50 percent of farmers over age 55 – nearing retirement age - have adult children who farm.” But that proportion represents barely half the number that would be needed to replace the current generation of farmers as they retire, the sociologist noted. “As the average age of Iowa farmers increases, it’s important that we understand more about how the children of farmers weigh their career options.” Eighty percent of the farmers reported that love

of farming was either important or very important in their children’s decisions to become farmers. Seventy-two percent gave high rankings to quality of life considerations and having grown up wanting to farm. Ability to be their own boss, desire to stay close to home, desire to carry on family tradition and family ability to help get them started also were rated as important or very important by a majority of Farm Poll participants. “Farmers did not see economic factors as having played an important role in their children’s decisions to farm,” Arbuckle said. “In fact, ‘better income than other options’ was ranked dead last among factors that influenced their kids’ choice of farming as an occupation.” When considering factors that figured into the career choices of children who did not go into farming, however, farmers indicated that economic factors played a major role. “The dominant reason, by far, was that other occupations provided better income. Seventy-five percent of farmers rated this reason as having been either important or very important in shaping their children’s decisions to go into a field other than farming,” Arbuckle said. About 50 percent indicated that inability to afford equipment, land, livestock and other factors of production, as well as high land rents, influenced the decision not to farm. High risk and low farm profits also influenced their choice of another career. Arbuckle took notice of two factors that didn’t appear to affect the decision not to farm. “Conventional wisdom suggests that the amount of manual labor involved in farming combined with the perceived isolation of rural life discour-

age young people from entering farming. But Farm Poll data do not support that view,” Arbuckle said. Sixty-two percent of farmers indicated that the labor demands of farming did not figure into their kids’ decisions not to farm, and 61 percent felt that disinterest in rural living was not an important consideration. “Sometimes we don’t give the kids of today the credit they deserve. They’ll work hard at something they really love to do,” Arbuckle said. “Farming is a tough business. It’s tough to get into – a lot of investments have to be made, in equipment, land and so forth. And it’s economically challenging. So it’s not surprising that those who end up choosing farming as a career are those who love to farm,” Arbuckle said. “The kids who grew up wanting to farm, love farming, and really want to farm as a career, it seems to me, will do what it takes to reach that goal. But the barriers may be too high for some.” More than 1,200 farmers participated in the 2009 Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll. On average, they were 64 years old and had been farming for 39 years. Copies of the 2009 summary report, PM 2093, and reports from previous years are available from the ISU Extension Online Store (www.extension.iastate.edu/store/) and Extension Sociology (www.soc.iastate.edu/extension/farmpoll.html). The summary report also examines reasons underlying the ongoing decline in mixed livestock and grain farming, local food systems, valueadded agriculture, targeted conservation approaches, nutrient removal wetlands, and personal and financial well-being.

DNR unveils new livestock database The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has recently made information about livestock and poultry operations as easy as a mouse click. The DNR’s updated animal feeding operations database is accessible online. The internet format makes it easy to access information about more than 8,000 facilities the agency tracks. “People can now search by owner’s name, the facility identification number, or geographically,” said Gene Tinker, coordinator of the DNR’s animal feeding operations program. The database covers primarily those operations large enough to require approval for a construction permit. It also covers mid-size and larger operations that need a manure or nutrient management plan. While the database includes information on some of the smaller facilities in the state, not all small open feedlots or confinements are tracked in this system. “This will make it easy for producers to check and make sure information about their facility is accurate,” Tinker said. “They can also look for the month their manure management plans are due and when the last original

Impact expected on hog prices from Morrell plant closing

P-Index plan was submitted.” A report function on the database allows people to search by watershed, county or region. “This information is great for planners and technical service providers,” Tinker stated. “It greatly improves their ability to estimate the density of animals in an area or to find a suitable site for a new facility.” The database can be found at: https://programs.iowadnr.gov/animalfeedingoperations/. A help menu and user’s guide are also available. Producers who find an error in the information about their facility should notify their regional DNR field office. The field office phone numbers are: - Northeast Iowa, Manchester, (563) 927-2640 - North Central Iowa, Mason City, (641) 424-4073 - Northwest Iowa, Spencer, (712) 262-4177 - Southwest Iowa, Atlantic, (712) 243-1934 - South Central Iowa, Des Moines, (515) 725-0268 - Southeast Iowa, Washington, (319) 653-2135

IBIC, ICA on a quest for the best burger Although a big, thick and juicy burger is the most popular item to grill at the backyard barbeque during the summer, it’s usually far from top of mind during Iowa’s winter months. So why not do the next best thing and go indoors for that burger you crave? The Iowa Beef Industry Council (IBIC) and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association (ICA) are on a quest to find the best burger in Iowa in their Best Burger in Iowa contest. The contest, sponsored by the IBIC and ICA, is designed to find the best burger served in an Iowa restaurant. Consumers are encouraged to nominate a great tasting burger from a restaurant they visit from now until March 15, 2010. Nomination forms and complete contest rules are available online at www.iabeef.org and will be available in various agricultural publications during the months of February and March.

Brian Waddingham, director of industry relations for the Iowa Beef Industry Council, said “the Best Burger in Iowa contest is a real win-win for the beef industry. It not only shows support for Iowa’s beef producers, but also provides a great opportunity to go out and enjoy a thick, juicy, great tasting burger with friends and family at your favorite restaurant.” In addition to bragging rights, the restaurant that wins the Best Burger in Iowa contest will receive a Best Burger 2010 plaque to hang in their restaurant. The more nominations a restaurant receives, the better the chances that they will be visited by the “judging team” to see just how good their burger is. The winner will be announced May 3, 2010 to kick-off May Beef Month.

With the announcement by Smithfield Foods that it will close its Sioux City John Morrell hog processing plant, producers and others are wondering what effect that action will have on hog prices. Iowa State University Extension livestock economist John Lawrence provided the following information. Smithfield Foods announced January 20 that it will close the Sioux City John Morrell hog processing plant in April. The closing will directly impact both the estimated 1,500 employees who will lose their jobs and hundreds of other workers who provided services to the plant or to the employees. Hog producers in the region also will be impacted, but not as dramatically as might be expected. While it is never good for a seller to lose a buyer, the reduction in packer capacity is expected to have a small negative impact on the basis compared to what would have been had the plant remained open. Hog producers who now sell to the plant will have to find another buyer and could have higher transportation costs if they need to ship to a more distant plant. In addition, producers who don’t have a track record with a buyer may want to start shopping around now to determine where their hogs will do best. The closing of the plant will more closely match slaughter capacity to production on a national level. The Sioux City plant processed approximately four million hogs per year. That’s nearly equal to the expected decrease in U.S. commercial slaughter in 2010 compared to 2008. The smaller supplies will result in higher hog prices over all. Pork producers have experienced devastating losses beginning in October 2007, losing money in 25 of those 27 months. Prices neared breakeven for most producers on the recent rally in hog prices, which happened at about the same time as the announcement of the plant closing. The plant will not close until April, which should soften the blow for producers because hog prices typically increase seasonally in the summer. In addition to higher prices on smaller national supplies, individual packers may bid more aggressively to assure their plant has enough hogs to run efficiently as supplies declined depending on local supply and demand conditions. The closing will reduce demand for hogs in the region, but seven plants are located within 100 miles of Sioux City representing five different companies: Smithfield in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 14,000 head per day; Smithfield in Denison, 9,200 per day; Tyson in Storm Lake, 15,000 head per day; Tyson in Madison, Nebraska, 7,500 head per day; JBS in Worthington, Minnesota, 17,500 head per day; Hormel in Freemont, Nebraska, 10,500 head per day; and in Sioux Center, 3,500 head per day.
