Hoover’s Hatchery: decades of experience in the poultry industry

by Emma Struve A building, which used to house Rudd’s creamery, is dwarfed by the elevator right next door. To enter the front office feels like going into any paneled family room in Iowa but it belies the beehive of activity in the rest of the rooms to the rear of the building. Nestled in the small north central Iowa town of Rudd is the privately owned and operated Hoover’s Hatchery, which has built business from flocks of chickens across Iowa in order to ship day-old chicks to poultry owners throughout the United States. Hoover’s Hatchery took its name from patriarch Robert Hoover in 1942. It has been in the same location since 1944. Present owner Mary Halsted started working at the hatchery while it produced and sold chicks and table eggs in the early 1970s under Mr. Hoover’s expert tutelage. “He was a very good teacher,” Halsted stated. She now operates the business with energy, a practical knowledge earned from half a lifetime in

the industry, and deftness that would make you think she never wanted to do anything else. Although, Halsted will tell you that as a child she hated collecting eggs from the hens that pecked at her hands and was not going to have anything to do with chickens when she grew up. Halsted started working at Hoover’s Hatchery when her family was young. She and her husband lived just outside of Rudd and were in financial need. “I cleaned and boxed eggs,” Halsted recalled. “Then I came to work in the office with orders.” That was when the demand for meat-type broiler chickens first started to take off and Hoover’s Hatchery was developing its dealer network. Halsted started purchasing shares in the business in 1978 when it was incorporated and Mr. Hoover semi-retired. In 2003, Halsted became the sole owner of the hatchery. She – along with a staff of 26 full- and part-time employees – receives eggs ready to hatch from breeding flocks, incubates them for 19 days, hatches them, packages them according to

Up 43 percent, E85 sales set new Iowa record in 2010 The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) announced that E85 sales in Iowa reached an all-time high in 2010. According to the Iowa Department of Revenue, sales of E85 by Iowa retailers reached 9,311,908 gallons last year representing a 43 percent increase compared to 2009 sales. “E85 has been a great success for Iowa consumers and retailers alike,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “With gasoline prices shooting skyward, E85 is the most costeffective fuel choice for consumers today. And many E85 retailers have noted that E85 accounts for almost 10 percent or more of their total fuel sales. With more and more flexible

fuel vehicles rolling off assembly lines, the only thing holding E85 back is the lack of E85 pumps.” Iowa currently has 138 retail outlets offering E85. A list of all the E85 stations can be found at www.iowarfa.org/ethanol_e85refueling.php. IRFA predicts that it is likely to see more ethanol blended fuel sales because Iowans are looking for ways to fight back against high gas prices. “Unrest in the Middle East coupled with the desire to promote Iowa jobs is leading more Iowans than ever to choose the E85 dispenser. We are excited that several additional retailers are planning to add E85 and other mid-level

ethanol blends to their stations this year,” said Shaw. Iowa is the leader in renewable fuels production. Iowa has 41 ethanol refineries capable of producing nearly 3.7 billion gallons annually. In addition, Iowa has 12 biodiesel facilities with the capacity to produce 315 million gallons annually. The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association was formed in 2002 to represent the state’s liquid renewable fuels industry. The trade group fosters the development and growth of the renewable fuels industry in Iowa through education, promotion, legislation and infrastructure development.

Iowa corn farmers set ethanol, farm bill policy Iowa corn farmers joined with other farmer members from 26 states representing the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) at the annual Commodity Classic meeting to determine policies for their respective organizations in 2011 and beyond. NCGA delegates adopted ethanol policy that states “NCGA supports reforming existing ethanol tax policy. Ideas to replace existing tax law, in the following priority order, should be a variable ethanol tax credit followed by an ethanol tax credit at a reduced rate. Non-tax policies should include biofuels infrastructure, higher blends, corn starch ethanol as an advanced biofuel, or favorable flexible fuel vehicle policy.” Along with ethanol policy, representatives adopted Farm Bill Policy that says “NCGA

should investigate transitioning direct payments into programs that allow producers the ability to manage risk while assuring food security.” A major topic at the 2011 Commodity Classic was the current budget situation in Washington, D.C. Agriculture represents less than one-half of one percent of the federal budget and farmers will do their part in strengthening the U.S. economy as shown already by cutting more than $4 billion in spending on agriculture programs this fiscal year. “Corn farmers are moving forward to shape our farm and ethanol policies to work with the current political and budget situation in Washington to continue our successes in providing food, fuel, feed and fiber to America

and the world,” said Dean Taylor, Iowa Corn Growers Association president and a farmer from Prairie City. About the Commodity Classic The Commodity Classic is the premier convention and trade show of the U.S. corn, soybean, sorghum and wheat industries. Each year, the industry gathers at Commodity Classic to experience, learn and share information about issues, technology and trends in U.S. agriculture. The ICGA is a membership organization, lobbying on agricultural issues on behalf of its over 6,400 members. For more information about the ICGA and its programs, visit www.iowacorn.org.

HOOVER’S HATCHERY: Continued on Page 1 about May, eggs are hatched on Sunday and Wednesday and shipped or delivered Monday through Thursday. “We ship all over the United States, including Alaska, the east coast and west coast,” Halsted remarked. “Sometimes shipping takes two days.” Hoover’s Hatchery utilizes air post through Minnesota, FedEx in Fort Dodge or simply the United States Post Office in Rudd. Halsted explained that the hatchery caters to those making moderate sized poultry orders: they receive many in the 25- to 100-chick range. The equipment used in the hatchery, then, is different than some in larger scale production. For example, Halsted explained, when Hoover’s Hatchery receives eggs in cardboard crates from breeding flocks, workers handle the eggs by hand. In some operations this process is mechanized. An interesting note, she offered, fertilized eggs, at the correct temperature and humidity, can be held for up to 14 days before being placed in the incubator. However, at Hoover’s Hatchery they usually get the eggs “trayed” within five to seven days of arrival. Likewise, the incubators at Hoover’s Hatchery, while they incorporate automatic rotation that turns the eggs every two hours to optimize the hatching rate, are not computerized. Before the eggs hatch they are transferred to “hatchers,” so the chicks are contained in sanitized bins. A single “hatch” during the busy season can be up to 50,000 chicks. Once the chicks are out of their shells, three to five sexers determine if the chicks are female or male in order to fill customers’ orders. The chicks

are then quickly boxed in insulated, ventilated, cardboard crates with absorbent bedding. Halsted said the chicks have enough nutrition from being inside the egg and feeding off the yolk sac to go without food and water during shipment for a few days. Once customers receive the chicks, though, it is important for them to quickly provide food, water, and a heat lamp for the chicks. Hoover’s Hatchery contracts with independent producers in Iowa that own breeding flocks for the production of eggs. Halsted illustrated that element of production: the female chickens in these type of settings are “ground birds” so the cockerels can “do their job.” The hens then go into a nest to lay their eggs, which are collected daily by hand. “It is a labor intensive job that not everyone wants to do,” Halsted commented. “It’s an art in itself.” Many of the farms that produce eggs for hatching are owned and operated by Amish and Mennonite families. Types of laying chickens bred by Hoover’s Hatchery include White Leghorn, California White, Barred Rock, Black Australorp, Production Red, Gold Star, Black Sex Link, White Rock, Buff Orpington, Aracanas and Silver Laced Wyandotte. Rhode Island Red is a new breed just added this year. The Black Australorps are particularly desirable in certain cultures because the mature birds will retain dark skin on their legs, Halsted stated. This is an important characteristic for some people in order to consume poultry per their religious beliefs, she continued.

Aracanas, alternatively Americanas, are interesting because the speckled, almost penguinlooking chicks, once mature, lay multiple colored eggs in shades from light brown, to green, to blue. The Cornish Cross Broilers hatched at Hoover’s come from Arkansas. Halsted explained that it is difficult to maintain broiler breeding stock in Iowa because of the climate, so the eggs are brought from that part of the country instead. Hoover’s Hatchery contracts with other hatcheries to provide customers access to ducks, geese, turkeys, pheasants, guineas, and peafowl, which are direct shipped. Customers may order directly from the Hoover’s Hatchery by mail, on the phone, or through one of approximately 700 dealers throughout the nation. Despite having been in the chick business for the better part of four decades, Halsted unequivocally stated, “Every day I learn something new.” As one might expect she has also seen many changes during her time in the industry. “There used to be a coop in every town,” Halsted said. “There used to more avenues to process chickens. And everything is more automated now.” In order to keep current on the poultry industry she tries to attend the Iowa Poultry Association Fall Festival, attend seminars, read trade magazines, and engage other producers and hatchery professionals in conversation. The most rewarding part of her career, Halsted noted, has been the association with dealers and people, “getting to know people, even those I’ve never met by talking to them on the phone, and flock owners. “We depend on people to make us successful,” she insisted.

At Hoover’s Hatchery, eggs are received from breeding flocks and placed in incubators that rotated them every two hours for 19 days. They are then transferred to hatchers where the eggs are placed in trays so the chicks can safely come out of the shells. Once hatched, the chicks are processed for shipment and off to their destination within a matter of hours. Photo by Emma Struve

Aracana chicks are speckled black and brown on the top and creamy yellowish-white on the bottom so they look almost like penguins. As adults the laying hens produce eggs in various shades of brown, blue and green. Photos by Emma Struve

Vegans and vegetables A few weeks ago, I accidentally watched Oprah. I didn’t mean to watch it. I thought I was settling down to watch NCIS:LA. But instead of the sweet musings of Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J, I got Oprah telling me that she had asked her staff to volunteer to eat like a vegan for one week. More than 375 of her staff members signed on to the experiment. I know I should have turned it off and deleted it from my DVR right then and there, but I was hooked. What could possibly be the draw for that many people to eat vegetables only? I had to know. So, first I learned that to be a vegan is not to be a vegetarian. To be a vegan is to forego all animal products, including eggs, cheese, milk, ice cream and other things that make life worth eating. I watched as she tiptoed around the subject of not eating meat, not wanting to be the defendant in another court action. (We all remember the great Cattlemen trial of 1998, right?) We heard from vegan Kathy Freston, who has written several

books on the subject, about how being a vegan is better for both your body and your soul. Blah. Blah. Blah. She’s raising her children as vegans, and doesn’t allow any animal products in the house, but admitted that her husband is what he calls veganish. When he’s outside the house at restaurants, he eats meat. Can anyone else read between the lines on that one? I have to admit that I was more than a little aggravated and defensive as I watched the show. I’ve watched how my family takes care of our cattle. They are well cared for, and not abused. Though we do have the occasional problem, as everyone does, for the most part we have a healthy herd. I was really angry when Oprah announced before a commercial break, that she sent cameras into a beef processing plant to see how cattle are slaughtered and turned into the beef we purchased from the supermarkets. Cargill Foods let Lisa Ling and her cameras go through their pristine plant to see the

process. I watched as they showed cattle wandering through the curved “Temple Grandin” designed walkways. Of course, they didn’t show the actually kill, but they did show the hide being torn off and the meat being processed after. Oprah agreed that it was more humane than she expected, which didn’t surprise me. Most celebrities make assumptions about the meat industry without actually knowing how it works. Ling, who had been a meat eater before, said that she would continue to eat meat, but would be conscious of the animals that provided the meat. That’s something that we in Iowa don’t have a problem with, as we see the cattle, pigs, and chicken as we travel down our roads each day. And smell them. Freston, the vegan, proudly displayed her meat and dairy substitutes, such as tofu and cheese she said was made out of pressed oils. Sounds yummy! Seriously, if Oprah wanted to do all sides of the food and vegan issue, she should have asked for cameras to go

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch

into a tofu processing plant, or a non-dairy cheese processing plant. I would love to see how the cheese is made out of pressed oils. I think, all-in-all, as long as you’re eating the actual food and not something horribly processed, you’re eating good food. I can’t believe that pressed oils would be healthier for me then eating the actual cheese. The program did make me think that perhaps I should be eating more fruits and vegetables.

Last week, when I was making homemade vegetable soup from fresh vegetables (OK, the corn and peas were frozen), my husband asked me what type of meat was going into it. I told him none, because it was vegetable soup, not vegetable beef, or vegetable chicken soup. Just vegetable soup. I told him I thought it would be nice for me to have a meal each day without meat, the thought being I would eat more vegetables which would be better for me. His response was, “So you’re going to be a vegetarian?” Um, no. I tried that once and it didn’t go well. I did get my sons to try the soup, and they ate it, not happily, but they did eat it. I think getting them to eat more vegetables may take more time. We’re now in lent, which means that it’s time to give up something that’s important to you. What shade of whitish green do you think my husband will turn when I tell him I’m giving up beef?

COOK’S CORNER Almond Butter Buckeyes

Arroz con Pollo Ingredients 1 chicken (3½ - 4 lbs.), cut into 8 pieces Adobo with pepper, to taste 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup) ¾ green bell pepper, finely chopped (about ¾ cup) 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped 1½ cups extra long grain rice 1 packet powdered chicken bouillon 1 packet Sazón with Azafrán ¼ cup GOYA pitted alcaparrado, sliced 1 jar (4 oz.) fancy sliced pimientos ½ cup frozen peas, thawed

Candy Ingredients 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 1¼ cups almond butter* 3 tablespoons dark rum or 1½ teaspoons rum extract 1 teaspoon almond extract 3¾ to 4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Instructions 1. Using paper towels, pat chicken dry. Season chicken with adobo. Heat oil incaldero, or large heavy pot over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, until brown on all sides, 7-10 minutes; set aside. 2. Stir onions, peppers and garlic into pot; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add rice, bouillon and sazón to pot; cook, stirring constantly, until rice is completely coated in oil mixture, about 1 minute. 3. Stir in 3 cups water; bring to a boil. Add alcaparrado and chicken (skinside up) to pot. Cover pot, reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed, rice is tender and chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes. 4. To serve, using fork, fluff rice; garnish with pimiento strips and peas. Note: Pitted Alcaparrado is the perfect blend of olives, pimientos and capers that adds a special briny flavor to this Arroz con Pollo recipe and many of our other favorites, like beef stew and ropa vieja. But what makes it even more special: This convenient jar saves us valuable time in the kitchen. We simply spoon the veggies onto our cutting board, give them a quick chop, and we’re on our way – no pitting, or mixing required!

Another record year for American ethanol producers 2010 annual ethanol production was13.23 billion gallons 2010 was another record year for American ethanol producers. According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), daily ethanol production in 2010 averaged nearly 863,000 barrels per day (b/d). That represents 36.24 million gallons of daily production and nearly 13.23 billion gallons of production for calendar year 2010. 2009 ethanol production was 10.75 billion gallons. Imports for 2010 stood at slightly more than 9.7 million gallons, down from 193 million gallons in 2009. As the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) previously noted, exports of U.S. ethanol reached all-time highs in 2010. According to government data compiled by RFA, total ethanol exports ended the year at 397 million gallons, marking a nearly four-fold increase compared to 2009. Of the 2010 total, 270 million gallons (68 percent) were classified as denatured ethanol, while the remaining 127 million gallons (32 percent) were undenatured, non-beverage. These exports are not eligible for the Volumetric Ethanol

Excise Tax Credit (VEETC), also called the blender’s credit. A record volume of distillers grains (DDGs), the livestock feed co-product of ethanol production, was also exported in 2010. Nine million metric tons of this high-value livestock feed were exported in 2010. “In today’s volatile oil market, ethanol production is helping to reduce costs for consumers at the pump and is the only measure currently moving America away from imported oil,” said RFA President Bob Dinneen. “At nearly 10 percent of the U.S. gasoline market, American ethanol production is supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs while reducing our need to import 445 million barrels of oil to refine into gasoline. That is more oil than we import from Saudi Arabia each year. At a time of increased energy uncertainty and volatility, domestic ethanol production from a growing array of feed-

stocks is helping create the kind of economic and energy opportunities this country will need to regain control over our future.” The yearly data was compiled via the final monthly ethanol production report for 2010 released by EIA. According to that data, December 2010 was a bigger—than-expected month for ethanol production. The industry produced nearly 918,000 b/d, down slightly from 924,000 b/d in November 2010. December daily production on an annualized basis would be 14 billion gallons. Demand for ethanol, according to RFA calculations rose to 918,000 b/d, up from 900,000 b/d in November 2010. RFA calculations for 2010 ethanol demand stand at just shy of 860,000 b/d. December stocks for ethanol fell slightly to 17.94 million barrels, or 19.5 days of supply based on demand calculations.

Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation auction successful Iowa cattle farmers provided overwhelming support to the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation (ICF) Auction during the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association Annual Convention in Ottumwa on February 25 and 26. More than $46,000 was raised in the auction that included more than 100 items. ICF President Will Frazee of Emerson credited ICA members and supporters with providing a variety of useful items for the auction. “We had everything from art work to hay grinding services,” he said. “Our success is based on both bidders and donors, and we’re thankful for all their generosity.” Frazee added, “That money will support our youth education programs, as well as scholarships and educational programs for producers.” Some examples include the youth beef team program, the Beef Scholarship Extravaganza, the Young Cattlemen’s Leadership Program, and FFA and 4-H scholarships. The Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation provides support to programs that increase public understanding of the Iowa beef industry and assist in providing educational and job opportunities for Iowa’s young people in the beef cattle business.

Egg handling inspection could be under purview of Department of Ag by Emma Struve Legislation to transfer the regulation of egg products from the Department of Inspections and Appeals to the Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship made it through the first legislative funnel. The bill, House File 453, was passed by the House Agriculture Committee February 23; it was read to the full House of Representatives on March 1. Representative Dan Muhlbauer (D-Manilla), who serves on the House Agriculture Committee and is assigned to the bill, explained that the legislation functionally divides responsibility for oversight between the two departments: the department of inspections will oversee processes relating to food and the department of agriculture will oversee the production side. “Really, it makes a lot of sense,” Muhlbauer stated. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented that, historically, egg production facilities were not subject to intense scrutiny but as of July 2010 the FDA announced a new inspection program. It was the intention of the federal agency to contract with a state department to implement the enhanced program. “It is more important that it does get done than who does it,” commented Steve Mandernach Bureau Chief for Food and Consumer Safety with the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. Within the department of agriculture the Bureau of Feed and Fertilizer would be responsible for egg production facility inspection, Muhlbauer added.

From a safety standpoint, he explained, salmonella in eggs can come from the feed chickens eat and tracking will be easier if the two processes are handled through the same inspection department. Northey said that within egg production facilities the new inspection plan also mandates that environmental samples be obtained from egg belts and other equipment, which will serve as an early warning of chickens carrying salmonella that could potentially pass the bacteria in eggs. Iowa Poultry Association CEO Kevin Vinchattle said of the legislation, “We support the move.” Vinchattle added that it was his opinion that the department of agriculture inspecting egg facilities was appropriate. Furthermore it seemed to be a natural fit to him, “They are more familiar with what farms are, how they work, what they look like.” Other than transferring responsibility for inspections between the two departments, the proposed legislation does not change the type, frequency or intent of the inspection program. In fact, Vinchattle elaborated, that the inspection programs of the top 28 egg producing states is overseen by the FDA. “Producers should not see any change,” he said. Northey explained that during the next year inspectors will begin working with producers at facilities with more than 50,000 layers, looking at eggs and for potential sources of salmonella such as rodent infiltration. Mandernach stated that while under the department of inspection and appeals, inspection responsibilities were split among five people and involved less than one full-

time-equivalent employee. The transition from Department of Inspections and Appeals to the department of agriculture will not impact any of these employees, he added. This plan, as outlined by the FDA, was already in place to be implemented but has increased urgency due to events from last summer that involved egg recalls due to bacterial contamination. The legislation, as drafted, directs the two Iowa agencies to begin working together upon passage to facilitate the transfer of inspection duties. The rest of the act, should it be passed, would take effect July 1, 2012. Northey remarked that this allows for plenty of time for adequate training. Mandernach agreed that adequate transition time is key in this legistion. Vinchattle added that the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship also has available the state veterinarian as a resource, if needed. If producers are concerned about the legislation Vinchattle encouraged them to talk to the chairpersons of the House and Senate agriculture committees Annette Sweeney (R- Alden) and Dr. Joe M. Seng (D-Davenport), respectively. The capitol switchboard telephone number is 515-281-3221. Additional contact information for elected representatives can be found online at www.legis.state.ia.us. Muhlbauer said the house was considering the legislation on Tuesday, March 8. During discussion about the bill in committee, there was no opposition to it, he added. Additionally, there is no lobbyist opposition to the measure. “It is a good, common sense bill,” Muhlbauer remarked. “I will ask the house to support it.”

Genetic research renders economic value for swine producers by Emma Struve “Genomics is the study of new genes: it’s gene information, it’s gene mapping, it’s DNA. It’s all that molecular stuff that goes along with the genes that are underlying the genetic properties that we talk about,” Dr. Max F. Rothschild stated. He reviewed for the audience of swine producers, industry leaders in breeding, veterinary pharmaceuticals, animal handling technology and education gathered at the Iowa Pork Congress a simple genetic equation: genetics plus environment equals phenotype. Taken together, he elaborated that the role of geneticists is to understand the roles of genes; by using DNA markers the outcome of certain traits can be predicted. The most common type of genetic marker is a SNP, a single nucleotide polymorphism. Rothschild likened DNA markers to mile markers on an interstate; for example, if you take exit 113 off of I35 you end up in Ames, exit 194 results in a Mason City destination. One of the first genetic mutations identified was by Loren Christiansen in the 1970s: the halothane (HAL) locus, a recessive phenotype for muscular pigs. “He did it before we even knew about DNA,” Rothschild said. “He used some great biology to determine that muscular pigs were dying and that muscular defect looked to be recessive.”

Attention, Farmers and Truckers Let Ampride's 22 Years of Alignment Experience Align Your Heavy Duty Trucks!

It was later co-identified with porcine stress syndrome. Pigs could be screened with halothane. Those with the recessive trait were more susceptible to the anesthetic gas. “You had to be keenly aware of what that pig was doing, either dropping dead or sleeping,” Rothschild said. The shortfall of the test was that it only found the carriers – those homozygous with the recessive trait – and not the heterozygous carriers. “We needed to find a DNA test for that,” Rothschild added. One was discovered in just a few years and virtually revolutionized the industry. Since that time other production characteristics have been analyzed for their genetic basis, such as the difference in litter size between Yorkshire white and Meishan sows, which resulted in the identification of a likely responsible estrogen receptor. Another research project identified a subtle mutation that effect pigs’ backfat and feed efficiency. The growth genotype produces a pig phenotype that eats more, grows faster, but grows a little fatter. The efficient genotype produces a pig phenotype that grows slower, eats less, but “more efficiently converts its feed to growth,” Rothschild stated. “What’s happened in the industry, 10 years ago when this was discovered, people chose the growth allele, they wanted faster growth, corn was cheap, buildings were relatively cheap,” Rothschild said. “Now corn’s gotten very expensive and some of the swine breeders are fixing the lean alleles making the pigs more efficient.” Since the pig genome is known, by crossing purebred lines with identifiable markers and tracing characteristics such as meat quality, regions of responsible DNA can become known. By this method several genetic tests have become available in the industry to breeders. One of the economic advantages of the capability to detect genetic potential, Rothschild explained, is to fix a desirable genotype. For example, about 15 percent of Berkshires have a less desirable allele for meat quality. If sires were tested before breeding, this allele could be completely bred out.

Other benefits could include using genetic testing to select pigs from litters for pre-entry into performance tests or DNA traceability for “farm to fork” that could include a “breed guarantee.” Rothschild shared that the cost per test at this time is approximately $150 to $200. He foresees that in the future genomic selection could replace phenotypic selection. “Not everyone is going to do that, but nucleus breeders, those at the top of the genetic pyramid will use tests for traits that add profit,” Rothschild predicted. He elaborated that current methods used for selection based on growth and leanness are likely adequate so profit capture would be minimal but the method could be very valuable in relation to traits for disease resistance.

Lean hog trade has been higher this week due to short covering. The weekly net change was $1.27 higher on the April contract and June is up $.90. Spillover support from the cattle pit has helped hogs move higher this week. Cash hog prices were higher at midweek in good volume, so there is some cash optimism which should support trade this week. Processing margins will need to continue to improve in order to sustain the recent bounce. Hog weights have declined this week; they are averaging 1.6 pounds lighter versus last week, but are still 3.3 pounds heavier than last year. Hedgers call with questions, we suggest you continue to look at future margins.

CATTLE 03/10/11 Live cattle trade has been higher this week due to short covering and chart buying. The weekly net change $3.47 higher on the April contract and June is up $2.40. Short bought packers were aggressive buyers yesterday; cash trade was reported as high as $118 in the South and $192 in the North. This was an increase over last week of $5 to $6 in the South and $10 to $12 in the North. The cutout finished higher yesterday with choice up 1.60 at 176.87 and select was up 87 at 175.57. Demand needs to be

sustained at these higher prices, but cheaper competing meats are expected to be a problem as we move through 2011. On the chart, the market gapped to new highs on Wednesday which should promote additional buying interest; there are now limited resistance areas to note other than $120 on nearby Live Cattle and $140 on nearby Feeder Cattle. The Hedgers call with questions.

WHEAT 03/10/11

CORN 03/10/11

SOYBEANS 03/10/11

Wheat trade has been lower this week due to spillover pressure from the row crops and renewed chart selling. The weekly net change is 74 lower in Chicago, KC is down 75, and Minneapolis is down 62. Last week, Russia announced that they sold 550,000 tons of intervention grain in order to contain prices there; they plan to release an additional 3.3 million tons over the coming month which may limit upside. Chart damage has been done over the last two weeks may promote additional selling interest. The trade moved back below the May Chicago 100-day moving average and took out last weeks low, which could set up for another leg lower. Wheat needs some fresh supportive news to help it find support. The USDA Supply and Demand report was released on Thursday; the domestic wheat carryover was increased to 843 million bushels versus 818 million last month. The world wheat carryover came in at 181.9 million ton versus 177.8 million in February. The weekly export sales were reported at 575,700 tons of old crop and 81,500 tons of new crop. Combined, they were below expectations. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade has been mixed this week due to position squaring ahead of the USDA Supply and Demand report. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is 27 lower on the May contract and new crop December is up 1. Long liquidation has occurred in the form of spread trading this week which has made bear spreading the feature. The March to December corn spread has narrowed 16 cents this week and nearly 25 cents since the beginning of March. This indicates a transition of fund money from old crop contracts to new crop contracts as traders begin to anticipate an acreage battle in those new crop contracts. The March USDA Supply and Demand report was released on Thursday. Historically, this is a very uneventful report and Thursday’s numbers were all inline with expectations. The old crop corn carryover was projected at 675 million bushels which was unchanged from last month. The world carryover was estimated at 123.1 million tons which was up from 122.5 million in February. The focus will now shift to the USDA Planted Acreage Report at the end of the month. The baseline projections last month indicated that we have already added 4 million acres of corn, but the trade will struggle to fix the tight balance sheet issue even with a good acreage number; an additional increase in acres, demand rationing, or a huge yield will be needed to change the fundamental trend. The weekly export sales were reported at 477,200 tons of old crop and 11/12 sales came in at 298,800 tons; combined they were toward the low side of expectations. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has been lower this week due to continued long liquidation. South American harvest pressure has also contributed to the downside this week after the Argentine port workers strike was resolved on Tuesday. The weekly net change is 65 lower for May beans. May meal is down $16.80 and bean oil is down 236 points. The planting intentions will be the main market mover the rest of the month up to the report on the 31st. Planting weather will then be the watched news item. Position Squaring ahead of the USDA Supply and Demand report has produced active and volatile trade this week. On the report, the March soybean carryover was left unchanged at 140 million bushels. The March US soy oil carryover was reported at 2.408 billion pounds versus 2.573 billion last month. The global soybean carryover increased slightly to 58.3 million tons versus 58.2 million last month. Overall, the report was neutral as expected. The weekly export sales were 412,100 tons for old crop and new crop sales came in at 57,900 tons. Combined, they were inline with expectations. Meal sales were good at 156,700 tons and soybean oil sales were disappointing at 2,100 tons. Hedgers call with questions.

Calving season tips for producers As calving season begins, producers are keeping one eye on the weather and the other eye on the cows. Iowa State University (ISU) Extension beef veterinarian Grant Dewell shares five tips on helping calving season be as successful as possible for producers, regardless of the weather conditions. Be ready This is likely the most important aspect of the whole process. Clean calving areas, make sure plenty of bedding is available and gather supplies, including calf chains, calf puller, bucket, disinfectant, lubricant and heat lamps. Watch females closely

FOR SALE

You should be checking females on a regular basis — at least every four hours — for evidence of parturition. Losing a calf at calving because the cow was not assisted in time is like throwing away $600. Milk colostrum from dystocia cows for immediate feeding Dystocia calves, those born from difficult labor, will have a prolonged time before they stand and nurse so it is imperative to have colostrum available immediately. Milk some colostrum from the cow while she is caught up to have it ready for that calf. Segregate cows Segregate cows into at least three groups – pregnant cows, neo-natal calves and cows, and

older calves and cows. Calves between one and 21 days of life are most at risk of disease, so keeping these high-risk calves separate from the others in the herd can decrease disease incidence. If you have a disease outbreak, be prepared to keep this youngest group of calves isolated from all other calves. Consider calving later in the year Calves do better when calved in the clean, dry and warm environment of June rather than March. Also, green grass will better meet cows’ energy needs during peak lactation. For more information, producers can contact their ISU Extension beef program specialist or the Iowa Beef Center Web site at www.iowabeefcenter.org.

Iowa Cattlemen name Strohbehn to Hall of Fame Former Iowa State University Extension Beef Specialist Dr. Daryl Strohbehn was inducted into the Iowa Cattlemen's Association Hall of Fame. His accomplishments and contributions to cattle production in Iowa and beyond were noted at the 2011 Iowa Cattlemen’s Association Annual Convention in Ottumwa, February 25 and 26. Strohbehn, better known as “Stro” to friends and cattle producers, grew up in Black Hawk County on a farm that included both cow-calf and cattle feeding operations. He received degrees in animal science, animal breeding and genetics, and applied nutrition from Iowa State University and Michigan State University. In 1974, he came back to Iowa as an ISU Extension Beef Cattle Specialist and served in that capacity until retirement in 2010. He still works in the cattle business as the sales and records manager for Production Angus Associations of Boone. Strohbehn’s leadership to the beef industry has been in two major areas. One is through farmer education in the beef cow sector, and the

second is in the academic and professional services area where he gave leadership to the development, publishing and use of educational materials, computer software and production methods. He has given more than 1,500 presentations to county, state and national cattle events in these two areas. Strohbehn is also recognized for his focus on using teamwork to accomplish a goal. A few of the state-wide, national and international efforts he has helped lead are: • the National Beef Cattle Handbook; • the Iowa Beef Cow Business Record which served as a template for the Standardized Performance Analysis adopted by NCBA; • the Iowa Bull and Heifer Selection & Development Clinics which have been duplicated across the country; • the International Satellite Symposium for the Nutrient Requirements of Beef Cattle. This satellite symposium was broadcast to 37 sites in the United States, Canada, and Central America with more than 1,000 professional nutritionists and educators taking part; and

• the ISU computer software used nationally which includes the BRANDS nutrition package and the Estrus Synchronization Planner. He has served on many ICA and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association committees; was the regional secretary for the National Beef Improvement Federation; and was the educational coordinator for the National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium which does national train-the-trainer seminars. Previous major honors presented to Strohbehn are the National Outstanding Extension Achievement Award from the American Society of Animal Science, and the Pioneer Award from the Beef Improvement Federation. Since 1962, ICA has been selecting Iowans for their Hall of Fame based on: contributions to the beef cattle industry, contributions to the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, community and civic contributions, and cattle business accomplishments.

New leadership, policy actions result of ICA annual meeting A cattle farmer from southwest Iowa is the new president of the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association (ICA). Ross Havens, Wiota, moved to the position during the ICA Annual Convention in Ottumwa on February 25 and 26. “One of the goals of my presidency is to work hard to have programs that involve young people; get them active in our association,” said Havens. He noted that the ICA board has experienced members serving, but “to build our leadership (for the ICA) we need to promote the youth within.” Havens said “Iowa has the best opportunity of any state to grow back the cattle business. We have ethanol production here and a growing number of second to third generation cow-calf families that are coming back to grow their businesses.” In 2010, Havens was elected as presidentelect, and he moved into the position of president following the term completion of Kent Pruismann, Rock Valley. Pruismann had served two one-year terms as ICA president. Ed Greiman, Garner, was elected as president-Eelect by the ICA Executive Board. Greiman had served as Northwest Regional vice president since 2009. The board appointed Allan Johnson, Northwood, to fill Greiman’s spot as a regional vice president. The ICA Board also elected Mike Sexton, Rockwell City, as associate vice

president. Sexton works for Twin Lakes Environmental Services, LLC. Other members of the seven-member ICA Executive Board are Larry Johnson, Maquoketa; Richard Cochran, Ladora, and Scott Hansen, Adel. At the ICA business meeting, members adopted and modified several policies. The Business Issues committee modified its farm policy regarding the Conservation Reserve Program. The members adopted a policy that would allow managed grazing on CRP land in an effort to provide more grazing options to cow-calf producers. The ICA is working with several conservation groups to support such policy in the 2012 Farm Bill. The Cattle Production committee fine-tuned its policy on national cattle identification, instructing ICA to work in partnership with other stakeholders to meet the mandates handed down by USDA. Although no funding was provided for this mandate, ICA members see it as a vital process to ensure that Iowa producers stay competitive world wide as more and more countries put national traceability systems in to place. ICA members also adopted a new strategic plan and mission.

New National Pork Board campaign evolves to celebrate proud new brand identity: Pork Be inspiredsm ®

Updated Positioning Creates New Role for The Other White Meat

®

With a new focus on reaching creative, flavorseeking home cooks who already prepare, eat and love pork, the National Pork Board on March 4 announced a new branding position celebrating pork's ability to offer a wide range of options in the kitchen. With PORK® now as the brand, the new campaign of: Pork® Be inspiredsm shows pork's place in almost any menu, day part, cuisine and lifestyle, based on pork's unique combination of flavor and versatility as the source of kitchen inspiration. The new, fully integrated campaign features an updated look and feel, along with a new consumer target: the more than 82 million Americans who already cook, eat and love pork. Moving from a functional to a more emotional positioning, the campaign voice is proud, energetic, approachable and unapologetically

optimistic about the unique attributes of the world's most popular protein. Evoking the taste of backyard barbeques, new and attainable flavor combinations or midweek meals on the go, the bold product imagery celebrates one juicy, tender, flavorful pork meal after another. “Our research shows that pork's top consumers are looking for more than basic education; they're looking for inspiration. With its great taste and versatility, pork is the ideal catalyst to inspire great meals,” said Ceci Snyder, vice president of domestic marketing for the National Pork Board. “While our new target represents our biggest fans, we believe they have the potential and desire to enjoy pork more often - and to inspire others to do the same.” “We produce pork and are proud of it,” said Dianne Bettin, chair of the Domestic Marketing Committee and a producer from Truman, Minnesota. “Pork Be inspired will celebrate the wide range of meals that pork offers, give new ideas to our new consumer target and influencers and move the needle on pork sales both at retail and foodservice.”

The new campaign rolls out this March and April, and includes national advertising, public relations, social media, retail and foodservice marketing, as well as activation by state pork associations. Enthusiastic about this renewed approach, 2011 advertising media spending has more than doubled that of recent years. All elements will showcase inspiring new ways to enjoy pork more frequently, with a range of meal and menu options, Snyder said. Rallying “Pork Champions” Recent consumer segmentation research from the National Pork Board found that 82 million Americans are “Pork Champions” - men and women who are predominantly medium to heavy fresh pork eaters with a strong passion for pork that they are eager to share. This group of “flavor-seeking creatives:” Represents approximately 28 percent of U.S. households but accounts for roughly 68 percent of all in-home fresh pork consumption and 50 percent of all away-from-home fresh pork consumption.

Nevada producer is Iowa Beef Quality Assurance award winner Bill Couser, a cattle feeder from Nevada, was named the 2011 Iowa Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Award winner for his commitment to beef quality assurance while operating a sustainable cattle operation. Couser, wife Nancy and son Tim operate Couser Cattle Company. They were honored at the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association Annual Convention in Ottumwa on February 25. “We as Iowa cattlemen have a responsibility to maintain and uphold consumer perceptions of beef as one of the safest and highest quality products for their family. As livestock producers we pledge to continue this feeling of security through BQA programs, and ensure that producers are continuously educated on sound science production practices,” said Couser, a fourth generation cattle feeder. Couser Cattle Company is a family-owned feedlot with a 3,500 head capacity. Couser and his feedlot manager, Adrian Meyer, work as a team when managing the feedlot, which has

been updated to improve performance, to adapt to changing environmental requirements and to enhance animal welfare for the cattle operation. Couser embraces BQA concepts by ensuring that his employees are BQA-trained. A relationship with Iowa State University veterinarians helps ensure his health treatment protocols adhere to BQA guidelines and techniques. Regularly scheduled visits by consulting nutritionists ensure safety and quality of feed rations. Employees also use low-stress handling techniques to move cattle. A recent investment in a monoslope building has allowed cattle more protection from the elements and a cleaner and dryer environment adding to their comfort while adapting to changing environmental requirements. These efforts have not only enhanced animal comfort, but have improved performance of the cattle.

Couser was nominated by Drs. Terry Engelken and Renee Dewell of the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Engelken said, “We appreciate Bill’s willingness to ‘spread the gospel’ of BQA by sponsoring public BQA training sessions at their feedlot and allowing veterinary students access to their facilities and animals for teaching purposes. His efforts have resulted in more than 100 ISU veterinary students becoming BQA-certified.” Beef Quality Assurance is a national program for beef cattle production that assures the highest standards of animal care and treatment. It was developed with guidance from leading animal health and well-being experts and outlines essential elements for cattle care. More than 90 percent of all U.S. beef is raised under the BQA program. The Iowa BQA program is funded by the Beef Checkoff Program.

Celebrating Ag Day and Ag Week March15 is National Ag Day. It falls during National Ag Week, March 13 through 19, 2011, a time when producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America gather to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by American agriculture. As the world population soars, the food, fiber and renewable resources produced in the United States is in even greater demand. The National Ag Day program believes that every American should: • Understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, and is increasingly contributing to fuel and other bioproducts.

Each year, members of the agricultural industry gather together to promote American agriculture. This effort helps educate millions of consumers each year. By far, the most effective part of this program is the role the public plays in helping spread the word. A few generations ago, most Americans were directly involved in or had relatives or friends involved in agricultural-related endeavors. Today, that is no longer the case. That is why it is so important that all join together at the community level to carry the message a great deal further than any individual can do alone. Americans need to understand the value of agriculture in their daily lives. The following are just some of the key reasons why it’s important to recognize—and celebrate—Ag Day each year: • Increased knowledge of agriculture and nutrition allows individuals to make informed personal choices about diet and health • Informed citizens will be able to participate in establishing the policies that will

support a competitive agricultural industry in this country and abroad Employment opportunities exist across the board in agriculture. Career choices include farm production, agribusiness management and marketing, agricultural research and engineering, food science, processing and retailing, banking, education, landscape architecture, urban planning, energy and other fields. Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through 12th grade, all students should receive some systematic instruction about agriculture. Agriculture is too important a topic to be taught only to the small percentage of students considering careers in agriculture and pursuing vocational agricultural studies. Agricultural literacy includes an understanding of agriculture’s history and current economic, social and environmental significance to all Americans. This understanding includes some knowledge of food, fiber and renewable resource production, processing and domestic and international marketing.

Preliminary results available from forage testing project Thanks to an excess of rainfall this past summer, many producers had difficulty getting hay made in a timely manner, which resulted in over-mature forage. As forages mature, they decrease in both energy and protein, and over-mature forage can lead to long-term negative consequences in the herd, according to Iowa State University (ISU) Extension beef program specialist Denise Schwab. With this in mind, the Iowa Beef Center requested help and financial assistance from ISU's Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, the Iowa Forage and Grassland Council, and the Southern Iowa Forage and Livestock Committee to initiate a forage testing project, Schwab said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of mid-January, more than 400 samples had been submitted to Dairyland Labs as part of this project, with about 350 of those samples being conventional beef cow hay or corn stalks,â&#x20AC;? Schwab stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The test results are important to producers.â&#x20AC;? A quick look at the data shows that 13 percent of the samples were below 50 percent total digestible

nutrients (TDN) and another 34 percent were between 50 percent and 55 percent TDN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While many variables can affect the beef cowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutrient requirements, the full feed of these hays would be considered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;marginalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;deficientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in meeting the needs of the average pregnant beef cow during the winter months,â&#x20AC;? Schwab said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another method of looking at forage quality is based on Relative Feed Value (RFV), with 100 being equivalent to full bloom alfalfa hay. Of the hays tested, 78 percent were below 100 RFV, meaning thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a need for energy supplementation in those diets.â&#x20AC;? What do these results mean to the cattle producer? At the very least, Schwab explained, conventional hay feeding programs may not be providing the required nutrients for late gestation cows, meaning some form of energy supplementation is required. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your forages haven't been tested for nutrient content, it's critical that you closely monitor the body condition of your cows. Ideally, each cow

RUGGED, HEAVY-DUTY MODELS.

would have a body condition score of 6 at calving time to improve the likelihood of her cycling and rebreeding for next year,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep in mind that first cutting hay made in June is likely to be deficient in energy for the gestating beef cow and likely would need significant supplementation.â&#x20AC;? If you have questions on winter feeding of the beef cow or are interested in having your forages tested, contact an ISU Extension beef program specialist. To find a specialist, log onto www.extension.iastate.edu/ag/fsbeef/New%20files /fsbeef.html. The Iowa Beef Center (IBC) was established in 1996 with the goal of supporting the growth and vitality of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beef cattle industry. It comprises faculty and staff from ISU Extension, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and College of Veterinary Medicine, and works to develop and deliver the latest research-based information regarding the beef cattle industry.

The true test of a planter is how well it holds up after years of use. And if you look at an old White Planter, you’ll see that it doesn’t have seals, kickers or many of the things those other brands require you to replace on a regular basis. That’s because a White Planter uses pressurized air instead of suction, and that means it has far less moving parts to wear out or cause problems.

Ask a White Planter owner and you’ll hear that the legendary White Planter is just as accurate after years of use as the day you buy it. With less maintenance, better accuracy and a simple, yet advanced system, you’ll see that only one other planter is as good as an old White Planter is a new one.

Southern Iowa biomass crop workshop set for March 17 The Southern Iowa Resource Conservation and Development Area has been working with Iowa State University and the Iowa Farm Energy Working Group to evaluate biomass crops, including giant miscanthus and warm season grasses that can be used to produce renewable energy feedstocks. Two companies are cooperating in this joint venture, with plans to create businesses that convert biomass to anhydrous ammonia and energy pellets. “Collectively, these renewable energy enterprises would consume 54,000 acres of energy crops and create over 50 new jobs,” said Emily Heaton, Iowa State University Extension biomass crop production specialist. “Project cooperators are sponsoring a workshop where farmers will learn about opportunities to grow and market profitable biomass crops that are adapted to southern Iowa soils and climate”

The Biomass Crop Production Workshop will be Thursday, March 17, at Southwestern Community College in Creston. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. The program starts at 8:15 a.m. and concludes at 3 p.m. The morning session will focus on using perennial grasses, such as miscanthus, and other biomass crops for energy production. Iowa State University specialists will focus on species selection, agronomics and the best fit in southern Iowa agricultural systems. Representatives from ShowMe Energy and SynGest will discuss using perennial grasses as homegrown energy, markets and industry demand. The afternoon program features topics on fuels and chemicals from biomass as well as federal support for bioenergy programs. “Workshop participants will also learn about a new USDA initiative called the Biomass Crop Assistance Program,” said Heaton. “This program

provides cost share incentives for producers to establish, grow and harvest energy crops.” Registration can be completed online with a credit card (MasterCard or VISA only) at www.aep.iastate.edu/biomass. Registrations also may be faxed with a credit card to 515- 294-1311 or be mailed along with a check or credit card information to: ISU Agribusiness Education Program, 2104B Agronomy Hall, Ames, IA, 500111010. Pre-registration closed at midnight, March 11. After that date registration is $30. Registrations will be accepted the day of the workshop. Registration includes refreshments, lunch and class materials. For more information, call 515-294-6429 or email aep@iastate.edu. This program is sponsored by ISU Extension, Southern Iowa Resource Conservation and Development Area, South Central Iowa Soil and Water Conservation Districts and SynGest.

Enjoys cooking and experimenting with new flavors in the kitchen, understands how to cook pork, and in general looks at life with a positive outlook. A New Role for The Other White MeatÂŽ campaign Nearly 25 years ago, the PorkÂŽ The Other White MeatÂŽ campaign was conceived to reposition pork as a healthful protein source. Today, Pork Be inspired goes beyond basic cooking education and health to promote a deeper, more personal level of engagement with existing pork consumers, Snyder said. However, The Other White Meat campaign will play a role as a heritage brand, with use on the consumer web site and in nutrition communications. The Other White Meat campaign will not be featured in advertising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our new campaign communicates to the legion of pork fans that pork is delicious, versatile and can stand on its own,â&#x20AC;? added Snyder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pork is what consumers write on their shopping list or order in a restaurant. To those that love pork, it requires no comparison to the other meats. The range of meals drives new ideas - and appetites - for pork.â&#x20AC;? Digital advertising began March 7 with paid search and Web sites that reach the National Pork Board's new target, with creative directing to a new website URL, www.PorkBeInspired.com. Starting April 11, national television advertising includes both network and cable. Print advertising begins in April in food and lifestyle publications, using a unique three-page, consecutive right-hand pages to communicate pork's ability to inspire numerous meal ideas. The National Pork Board has responsibility for Checkoff-funded research, promotion and consumer information projects and for communicating with pork producers and the public. Through a legislative national Pork Checkoff, pork producers invest $0.40 for each $100 value of hogs sold. The Pork Checkoff funds national and state programs in advertising, consumer information, retail and foodservice marketing, export market promotion, production improvement, technology, swine health, pork safety and environmental management.

IPPA seeks producer award nominations

Summer incentive helping terrace construction

The Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) is seeking nominations for the 2011 Master Pork Producer and Environmental Steward awards. The Iowa Master Pork Producer Award program began in 1942 and is a joint effort between IPPA and Iowa State University Extension to recognize Iowa pork producers who show expertise in their segment of the production cycle, an understanding of current industry issues and demonstrate the ethical principles of pork production as outlined in the We Care responsible pork initiative. The Iowa Environmental Steward Award recognizes producers who go above and beyond in environmental stewardship. Applicants are reviewed in the areas of soil and water conservation, air quality, community and neighbor relations, wildlife habitat and other production innovations. Nomination forms and instructions for both award programs can be accessed at iowapork.org or by contacting IPPA. Nominations must be postmarked by August 1 for consideration. Both award programs follow the core principles of the pork industry’s We Care responsible pork initiative to produce safe food, protect and promote animal well-being, protect public health, safeguard natural resources, provide a safe work environment and contribute to a better quality of life in our communities. All award recipients will be recognized at the 2012 Iowa Pork Congress in January and be highlighted in IPPA publications and at industry events. In addition, the Environmental Steward Award recipient will receive a $500 cash award and be nominated for the National Pork Industry Environmental Steward Award, sponsored by the National Pork Board and National Hog Farmer. “Iowa’s pork producers represent some of the most efficient, innovative and adaptive in the industry,” said Tyler Bettin, IPPA producer education director. “It is important that we continue to recognize the efforts of our best and brightest producers. Doing this helps show consumers our commitment to the environment and production of safe food while also educating other producers on best management practices and industry opportunities.” For additional information regarding Master Pork Producer and Environmental Steward award programs, contact Tyler Bettin at 800-372-7675 or tbettin@iowapork.org.

Construction for practices like terraces and grassed waterways has typically been limited to early spring and late fall, but thanks to the Summer Constructive Incentives program through USDA, Iowa farmers can hire contractors to build in the summer and early fall. Farmers who choose this option can’t plant their typical cash crop in areas needed to facilitate construction. They are required to plant a temporary cover crop, such as rye or winter-killed oats, in that area to control soil erosion and help suppress weeds. To offset lost income, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will make a one-time payment of $200 per acre to farmers through the Summer Construction Incentive which is funded by the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Construction must occur between June 15 and October 15. Rick McBroom, a farmer and construction contractor in Lucas County, completed three sets of terraces on his own farmland last summer through the program. “So often our springs are too wet and our falls have too short of a window to get terraces constructed,” he said. “Without this incentive I don’t think we would ever get all of the work done that needs get done to protect our soils from erosion.” Kristy York, Area Program Specialist for NRCS in Atlantic, says this four-month window provides better construction weather and contractor availability. It also allows larger projects to get accomplished in a single year. “It’s a very efficient way to get conservation on the ground,” she said. “We often use the

incentive to construct multiple terraces on a hillside. Instead of going back and building additional terraces several years in a row, the producer can more quickly enjoy the benefits of the constructed system and not have to worry about getting the contractor back several years in a row.” The Summer Construction Incentive helps in years of untimely bad weather, too, says Jeff Matthias, a district conservationist with NRCS in southern Iowa. “Summer construction has allowed us to complete many terrace projects over the past three years that probably would not have been completed due to weather conditions,” he said. “Contractors like the program because they are not in as big of a time crunch as during fall construction, and landowners often favor it because it does not reduce yields as with spring construction.” McBroom said even though the incentive often leaves 50-60 acres out of production for a year, he doesn’t feel it’s a big sacrifice. He feels it’s a good long-term decision. “To me, it’s a nobrainer,” he said. “Terraces help keep soil on the field, preventing it from running off your farm.” The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship-Division of Soil Conservation (IDALS-DSC) offers a similar summer construction incentive program. According to Tony Toigo from IDALS-DSC, more than 1,300 acres have been set aside and planted to cover crops since March 2009 to allow for summer construction on conservation practices. To learn more about the Summer Construction Incentive, visit the NRCS office located at your local USDA Service Center, in Crawford County at 3707 Timberline Drive, Denison, or call 712-263-4639.
