Poultry enterprise lends farming experience to kids Boone County Hartsook family raises Cornish game hens, broilers, turkeys

by Emma Struve Many young Iowa families are at least a generation removed from the farm and yearn to return or start their own but lack the resources. Christa and Greg Hartsook both grew up on family farms. As adults, Christa said, “We wanted to give our children the same kind of experiences we had.” However, it was not possible to undertake a large-scale farming operation. They both enjoyed livestock and had a passion for local foods. When their children – sons Caleb, now seven, and five-year-old Lucas – were small, the

Hartsooks started raising broilers in the existing buildings on their 10-acre homestead near Madrid. “They are absolutely thrilled to death when it is chick day,” Christa remarked. The boys help her get the buildings ready and the chicks situated when they come home from the post office. Prior to undertaking a poultry business, Christa said she did a lot of online research especially about possible diseases, care and production methods. Currently their broilers are pasture-raised and receive a supplement of grain. The broilers produced over the summer always sell out.

When it came time to decide what type of animals to raise in growing their operation. Christa said they asked, “What could we expand into that other producers aren’t doing?” At that time, they decided to raise Cornish game hens. Just last year, the Hartsooks purchased and grew 50 turkeys. Since they sold so well, next year’s production schedule will include turkeys as well. In fact, total production in 2009 also included 800 Cornish game hens and 100 broilers. The poultry is obtained from Iowa hatcheries, Christa said. Many birds come from Hoover’s Hatchery in Rudd. Continued on Page 12

To make the perfect Easter egg… As the Easter season approaches families will be undertaking the egg dying tradition. Many use hardcooked eggs. Cayla Westergard, Iowa Egg Council director of consumer affairs, shared the following tips about egg handling. How to properly hard-cook an egg: 1. Place eggs in a single layer in saucepan. Add enough water to come to at least 1-inch above eggs. Quickly bring to boiling, and turn off heat. 2. Remove pan from burner. Let eggs stand, covered, in hot water 15 minutes for large eggs (12 for medium, 18 minutes for extra large eggs) 3. Immediately run cold water over eggs or place them in ice water until completely cooled (about 15 minutes) 4. To remove shell, crackle it gently by tapping it all over. Roll egg between hands to loosen shell. 5. Start peeling at large end. Hold egg under running cold water or dip in a bowl of water to help ease off shell.

2009 harvest continues into 2010 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Page 13

Shells from eggs that are one to two weeks old will peel easier than from fresh eggs, Westergard noted. Eggs expire 30 days after the pack date and should be kept in the refrigerator no longer than a month. When handling Easter eggs, Westergard advised: • Wash hands at every stage in the process-cooking, cooling, dyeing, and hiding • If hard-boiled eggs cannot be colored right away, store them in the refrigerator • Do not color or hide cracked eggs • When coloring eggs, use water warmer than the eggs • After eggs have been hidden and found, keep them refrigerated • Do not eat cracked eggs or eggs that have been out of refrigeration more than 2 hours For more information about eggs, including recipes, visit www.iowaegg.org.

Heat sensor can save energy for livestock producers ISU professor’s “SimPig” sensor now commercially available Livestock producers know the first few hours of an animal's life are important. Conditions need to be right to ensure a baby animal will grow into a productive part of the farm operation. Using flame-based infrared heating to maintain a warm environment for young animals is a common practice. Usually the heaters are turned on full blast for a set period of time. "As energy conservation measures become a top priority, methods are needed that provide the best conditions for young animals in enclosed housing at the lowest possible energy input," said Steven Hoff, Iowa State University professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering. Hoff saw the need for a device that would sense the effective radiant temperature in an animal pen and turn heaters off and on. To test prototype sensors, a simulated pen area was constructed with concrete floors and walls. Simulated pigs, dubbed "SimPigs," were created from rain gutter downspout sections. Temperature sensors were installed inside each SimPig, which then were filled with fiberglass insulation. The SimPigs were painted a flat-gray enamel, which Hoff said "provided absorptive and emissive characteristics representative of a pig's skin." Ten SimPigs were used to sense the heating zone. Ambient air temperatures in the pen also were monitored. Temperature data from both sources was recorded at five-minute intervals, as sensor locations and heat levels varied.

"The SimPigs gave excellent feedback to changes in heater output," Hoff stated. "This experiment confirmed it's possible to use a shielded sensor to control an infrared heater. While this experiment used simulated young pigs as the subject, the sensing system could be used for any young animal that needs a controlled microclimate. And it may help hold down costs critical to the bottom line." The company funding the research, Ray Dot, Inc. of Cokato, Minnesota, has developed a commercially available sensor based on Hoff's prototype.

Iowa State University Professor Steven Hoff created prototype sensors, dubbed "SimPigs," from rain gutter downspout sections to sense the effective radiant temperature in an animal pen and turn heaters off and on to save energy.

Student representatives to share ag’s story on Capitol Hill America’s next wave of agricultural leaders and innovators will take ag’s message to Capitol Hill during National Ag Week, March 14-20. Student representatives from FFA, 4-H and AFA from across the country will meet with their congressional representatives to emphasize ag’s critical role in our culture and our economy. “Our theme this year focuses on telling agriculture’s amazing story,” said Jenny Pickett, president of the Agriculture Council of America (ACA), which hosts the nationwide campaign. “National Ag Day gives these young people the chance to inspire our nation’s leaders and let Americans know that agriculture is a part of all of us.” John Deere and ADM are the 2010 Ag Day Partners. Their support makes the students’ participation possible. In addition, it provides for planning materials for grassroots Ag Day efforts as well as the key events in Washington, D.C. Each year, a key component of the Ag Day planning and events is an essay contest for seventhto 12th-grade students across the country. Students are invited to submit an original essay of 450 words about the importance of agriculture. The subject of this year’s Essay Contest is “American Agriculture: Abundant, Affordable, Amazing.” The national winner will receive a $1,000 prize and a round-trip ticket to Washington, D.C., to be recognized during the March 18 National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner at the USDA Whitten Building Patio. Each statewide winner will receive a $100 prize. Kimberly Schroeder from Remsen is Iowa’s state winner. National Ag Day (March 20, 2010) is organized by the Agriculture Council of America. ACA is a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community, dedicating its efforts to increasing the public's awareness of agriculture's role in modern society.

New spreadsheet helps pork producers evaluate economics of increasing weaning age Pork producers interested in learning how their finances could be affected by changing the weaning age should investigate a new spreadsheet available from the Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC) at Iowa State University (ISU.) Developed by Derald Holtkamp of the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine’s Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine, the free spreadsheet helps producers evaluate effects of increasing weaning age, including how their breeding inventory must change. “This is a breed-to-finish production and budgeting spreadsheet that evaluates both the costs and benefits of these changes,” Holtkamp said. “It also assists producers in determining how much their inventory must change for alternative weaning ages to ensure the farrowing capacity of a farm is not exceeded.” Holtkamp explained the spreadsheet is easy to use and understand. Users enter operationspecific production and financial information to develop a baseline, and can evaluate alternative breeding herd inventories and weaning ages for up to four scenarios. Total annual profit for the operation is the preferred economic outcome to evaluate the scenarios relative to the baseline. “Alternative market hog prices and diet costs may be entered,” Holtkamp said, “By doing this a producer can see if the profit increases or decreases as these parameters change while increasing weaning age.” The “Evaluation of Weaning Age Calculator” is available at no charge in Excel® 2003 and Excel® 2007 versions. Both are available by completing a registration form on the IPIC Web site. Go to http://www.ipic.iastate.edu/software.html and select "Spreadsheets.” Then choose the appropriate registration link for the version of the spreadsheet. Users must have Excel® 2007 installed on their computer to use the 2007 version of the spreadsheet. If unsure which version of Excel® is installed on a computer, choose the Excel® 2003 version of the spreadsheet. It will work if whether Excel® 2003 or Excel® 2007 installed. Since the spreadsheet was first made available in mid-January, producers from 13 U.S. states, three Canadian provinces and a half dozen other countries have requested and received the spreadsheets.

The right stuff… for insect repellants

Iowa State University Entomology Professor Joel Coats investigates the molecular basis for natural repellents and insecticides like those in Vietnamese pemou wood and hedge apples. Photo submitted

Research team investigates use of natural compounds as repellants and insecticides When Joel Coats washed his dog with an orangebased shampoo, he was amazed when fleas jumped off and expired. He immediately wanted to know why. That was 20 years ago. Since that moment, Coats, an entomology professor, and several graduate students have studied the natural repellents found in oranges, catnip and hedge apples. Following a trail based in folklore, Coats said they have investigated more than 50 essential oils produced by plants as repellents. Five patents later, Coats stated he's on the cusp of investigating the molecular basis for these natural repellents and insecticides. "I've been waiting to get the right people and the funding and it's finally coming together," Coats said. What's coming together is a microscopic view at the molecular make up of certain compounds called terpenes. Molecular-level research is easier than it would have been 20 years ago, but it's still

an intricate investigation. Molecules of the terpenes are so small that more than 6 sextillion (6 with 21 zeros after it) could fit inside a pea. Building on data from scientists throughout the world and using computers makes it easier to study the molecular characteristics today. The software can analyze more than 100 characteristics, such as topography, shape, polarity and solubility. "It's very arduous to separate and do testing at the molecular level," Coats explained. "We've separated the individual terpenes out of the oils that are the best repellents and best insecticides and now we are looking at the molecular structures and those relationships and how the structure is related to potency." It's the same type of research pharmaceutical companies use to determine the best analgesics for pain relief or other prescriptions. Coats is searching for the mechanism of action - how compounds affect insects. Several of the insecticidal compounds he's studying over-stimulate the central nervous systems of insects, which literally stops them in their tracks. Coats stated bugs that are sprayed with this compound, freeze within five seconds and one minute later they're history. "Green chemistry is definitely the future in insect control," he said. An advantage of using natural compounds is that there is no residue. Since the product is plant-based, it readily decomposes and disappears. Currently, a handful of companies are marketing the essential oils, but few are researching the molecular structure of the compounds. Looking for the right stuff means comparing the essential oils of several plants. Gretchen Paluch, a graduate student in entomology, is using molecular modeling to isolate the most potent repellents and predicting the effectiveness of the next ones to pursue. To test the molecular reactions for toxicity to the insects, another graduate student grinds up flies' heads and extracts the gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) in a centrifuge. GABA is the mechanism that controls part of the nervous system in flies. The GABA over-stimulation is the key to freezing insects in their tracks. Coats stated they are just beginning to understand the molecular structures that have protected plants for eons. From Vietnamese pemou wood to hedge apples, the molecular clues are there, it just takes time and minute detective work to discover the answers. Coats' dog Terpie, which is short for Terthiophene, a chemical found in marigolds, died in 2004. She enjoyed a flea-free life.

Mud, muck, and manure

With all the snow this winter, I’m learning more “code” words and phrases for those of us who live on farms. For instance, when the school is running “alternate bus routes” what they REALLY mean is “good luck getting your children to school if you live on a gravel road because we’re not going to even attempt it.” On a couple “alternate bus route” mornings, I was white knuckling the drive into town with the two boys. A few years ago, I had an acquaintance who harped on me constantly about me having a fourwheel drive vehicle because he didn’t see the purpose of it. I would have liked to see him get into town with his little car this winter. Wouldn’t have happened. Here’s a riddle that you already know the punch line to: what’s worse than four to six feet of snow piled up in the ditch area of a country road in a winter? You guessed it...that same snow melting in the spring. We have a lot of mud at our farm,

which is probably par for the course in western Iowa. The pile of snow pushed back from the road, past the ditch, and onto our fence is so tall I thought about getting some spray paint and doing my own graffiti. I thought maybe I’d make a “Mount Welchmore” but I’m not that good of an artist. Hopefully the snowmelt dries out quickly so my husband can get into the field and won’t be crabby again this spring. We had our first spring calf last week, right before we were going to move the cows from the winter pasture into the calving space. He’s a cute little calf, but as his mom is one of the “mean, protective” ones, my husband and son can’t get close enough to tag it. Last Sunday we moved the cows across the road, and the little one trotted right alongside the cows and bull almost right where they were supposed to go. I say almost because it required a bit of work. We live in the hills, and the area we cross the

road with the cows is at the bottom of two hills. So I stand part way up on one hill, and my boys stand by the side of the road part way up the other hill. Because of all the snow, the cows couldn’t exactly see the lane they were supposed to use, so they started coming up my hill. It took a little bit of staring down a few dozen cows ... and a bull ... but I got them turned around and going where they were supposed to go. My husband told me later he was impressed, though I’m not sure why. All I had to do to get the cows turned around is holler and wave my arms, kind of like getting my farmer husband to pay attention when he’s in the field. I have experience with that! Speaking of cattle, I would like to thank CBS for blurring out the rear ends of pooping cows in an episode of The Amazing Race last month. It’s good to know that, while this country’s families are inundated with less than familyfriendly ads (Viagra anyone?), they have been saved from seeing poop.

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch With all the “stuff” on television, you’d think they wouldn’t have a problem with showing the real thing. At least they are trying to educate the general public by showing where we get milk. When I traveled to New York while in high school, I wondered why the children’s zoo had “common” animals such as cows, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks and rabbits.

All the zoos I had been through up until then had interesting animals such as giraffes, monkeys, tigers, bears, seals, dolphins, lions, and others we can’t find in the United States. (On a side note, we’re probably one of the few families to get through the San Diego Zoo in a couple of hours during my dad’s less-than-laidback years in the 80’s. Just a few phrases from dad during that trip: “It’s an elephant, girls. You’ve seen an elephant. You don’t need to read about it. We have encyclopedias at home. That’s why we have them. Look it up when we get home. Keep walking. It’s a tiger, girls. You’ve seen a tiger before...and so on and so forth.) Growing up in Iowa, the Central Park Children’s Zoo animals are ones we saw almost all the time. I’m sure to a native big city kid, the sight of mimes and street performers wouldn’t be something new, but a cow trotting past Macy’s would be a sight to see! Well, that and the pile of manure she left behind!

Painted eggs on display at Iowa libraries First place in the 2009 Iowa Egg Council’s egg decorating contest and $500 went to this creation, “2008 – The Year of the Flood,” created by Marjorie Nejdl of Ely.

Small works of art were entries in Iowa Egg Council contest by Emma Struve When a Sac County artist decorated her first contest-worthy egg for the 2009 Iowa State Fair, she never imagined it would win her $300. Sandra Wietzel of Early created “American Goth-egg” for the Iowa Egg Council’s annual contest in 2009 and won third place. Wietzel’s husband suggested that she enter the contest after he read about it in the newspaper. “I have been a freelance artist all my life,” she said. Though, Wietzel added, she had never painted an egg before. It was a new experience. “American Goth-egg” is Wietzel’s egg-shaped rendition of the iconic Grant Wood painting “American Gothic” featuring a stoic woman and man with pitch fork in front of a red barn. Some of Wietzel’s adaptations included adding a barn quilt to the barn in the background as Sac County is known for its many and various barn quilts. Also, she continued to illustrate Iowa’s crops and produce all the way around the egg. Wood’s original, of course, was flat. The idea initially came to her, Wietzel said, as a play on words “gothic” to goth-egg.” She had, however, done other renditions of the painting, Wietzel added, so was familiar with it. Eleven artists entered eggs in last year’s contest. Wietzel watched the live judging at the Iowa State Fair where the eggs were displayed in the building featuring crafts and textiles. The egg decorating process began by punching two holes in the egg and removing the contents while leaving the shell intact. The holes on the top and bottom were then sealed, Wietzel explained. She used acrylic paint, and then as a final touch coated the egg with a clear spray so it would be glossy. The Wietzels have been married 40 years. During that time Sandra has served as a 4-H leader and Sunday school teacher. “I always enjoyed the crafts,” Wietzel noted. Sandra Wietzel’s art work, “American Gothegg,” won third place at the Iowa State Fair in the Iowa Egg Council’s annual egg decorating contest. Wietzel is from Early. The 11 eggs entered in the contest are on display at the Norelius Community Library in Denison through March and will be at two other Iowa libraries in April and May. Photos by Gordon Wolf

ISU student’s project is scanning swine at shows Research can help geneticists and swine breeders Kyle Schulte takes his degree work on the road. The animal science graduate student is a certified swine ultrasound technician who travels across Iowa, providing an inside look at the pigs in county and state livestock shows. Schulte, who has his undergraduate degree from Iowa State, grew up on a crop and livestock farm in Benton County (East Central Iowa). He started developing an interest in swine research when he became a research assistant for Tom Baas, professor of animal science, during his junior year at Iowa State University. Baas is a swine specialist whose research focuses on swine breeding, pork quality and the use of real-time ultrasound for prediction of intramuscular fat in live pigs. Now Schulte's research program and much of his summer work involve the use of ultrasound scanning. "My graduate research project compares the accuracy of different ultrasound scanners and methods of scanning for the prediction of intramuscular fat percentage in the loin of live pigs," Schulte explained. "Accurate prediction allows for geneticists and swine breeders to place selection emphasis on specific pork quality traits, make faster improvements, and enhance the consumer pork eating experience." Judges of live swine shows visually analyze the pigs and rank them on their combination of characteristics like muscularity, skeletal width, structural soundness and eye appeal. Real time ultrasound images captured by ISU technicians at shows are used to provide a ranking of the pigs based solely on predicted carcass merit. It's technical, but many people understand the concept. "When most people think of ultrasound, they think of a developing baby. Ultrasound waves are high frequency sound waves. Visible images of structures inside a living human or animal are possible because ultrasound waves penetrate and reflect off different tissues such as muscle, fat and bone at different rates," Schulte stated. "We use ultrasound to measure the potential carcass composition (percent fat free lean) of live market weight pigs."

As a member and current leader of ISU's scanning team, Schulte said he enjoys all aspects of providing this important service at an affordable price for dozens of Iowa counties. "The number of certified ultrasound technicians in the state and even the nation is limited. The equipment is very expensive, and I only know of a couple firms outside ISU that offer their services to county fairs," he added. Schulte stated he's lost track of how many pigs he's scanned over the past four years at ISU, but it's probably close to 4,000. During the summer of 2009 alone, ISU technicians scanned at nearly 50 different Iowa shows, including the Iowa State Fair 4-H Derby Swine Show. "It's always a good time. There are usually people who are taken with what I am doing and I get lots of questions from them. I've even had some people exclaim, 'Look at the baby!'" Schulte said. "I enjoy answering the questions and would like to think they learn something." Scanning is a large part of Schulte's life as a graduate student, but he also finds time for a variety of other swine industry-related ventures. He and his brother own a small show pig operation, he judges youth swine shows and swine showmanship competitions and he serves as ultrasound scanning instructor for some programs and companies.

Marketing food locally brings value to producers, consumers Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs provide small producers marketing options and consumers a way to access fresh, locally grown products from vegetables and fruits to meats and dairy. Boone County poultry producers Christa and Greg Hartsook utilize the “Farm to Folk” CSA based in Ames to market their broilers, Cornish game hens, and turkeys. Marilyn Andersen, Farm to Folk coordinator, said that the CSA is a collaboration of independent producers and that her role is to facilitate orders and strategize how to equitably grow the number of consumers and producers involved in the program. Essentially, Andersen explained, the CSA model is that consumers purchase a share at the beginning of the year and receive deliveries of products throughout the season. “They share the risk and support the producer from the beginning,” she stated. Producers are accepted by application with an emphasis on those who grow products in a sustainable way. “The model seems to be conducive to set-up in other places,” Andersen remarked, since a CSA works just on a local level. Farm to Folk started as the Magic Bean Stalk CSA with one producer in 1995. When more growers joined and collaborated, the program reorganized in 2006. Now, there are about 10 producers and approximately 200 consumers. Andersen advised those interested in CSAs to consult Practical Farmers of Iowa (515-232-5661, practicalfarmers.org) and ISU Extension (www.extension.iastate.edu).

POULTRY ENTERPRISE LENDS FARMING EXPERIENCE TO KIDS Contined from page 1 For the poultry operation, the Hartsooks retrofitted existing buildings, including an old barn; and since production is seasonal, the buildings do not have to be heated. “The barn is why we bought the property in the first place,” Christa exclaimed. A challenge experienced by the Hartsooks, common to many livestock producers, was where and how to market the product. Christa said the family considered farmer’s markets but decided it was not a feasible option with two small children, though others have had luck marketing fresh poultry in that way. “Depending on your location, local foods offer tremendous opportunities,” Christa said. She advised researching where gaps may exist in supply and what consumers would like to purchase in advance of starting an operation. Christa works at Iowa State University Extension with the Value Added Agriculture program and appreciated being able to also bounce ideas off her colleagues about the poultry venture. Greg works with a swine pharmaceutical company. An expanding marketing option is through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs such as “Farm to Folk” in Ames, which has about 200 active members.

The Hartsooks also sell directly to the Wheatfield grocery in Ames, as well as local restaurants. To sell in that manner, the poultry must be processed at a state certified facility, so they take the birds to Hansen’s Poultry in Kimballton. Since purchasing the first broilers, the Hartsooks have produced poultry for five years, which Christa simply said, “is a nice seasonal enterprise for us.”

This workhorse of a barn is one of the reasons the Hartsook family purchased this acreage near Madrid. They use the space to house some of their poultry flock that includes Cornish game hens, turkeys and broilers; though the broilers are primarily raised on pasture. Photo submitted

2009 harvest continues into 2010 Farmers deal with snowbound corn by Leslie Reed, Omaha World-Herald At a time of year when they normally start greasing planters for spring, some farmers are still trying to finish their 2009 harvest. "I've farmed for 35 years and I've never picked corn in March before this," said Bob Bumsted, who lives in nearby Soldier. For Bumsted and his sons, it proved to be a fruitless attempt March 4 to start combining about 450 acres of corn - roughly one-fifth of his crop - still standing from last fall. A hard 18-inch layer of crusty snow in their field near Ricketts was more than the combine could handle. "The snow's too deep, the combine can't push through. Even with chains on the tires, we just sit there and spin," said son Kyle Bumsted. "It's too hard to steer. It's slick." Although Nebraska and Iowa produced a bumper corn crop last year, the harvest started late because of a cool, wet year. Then the first heavy snows hit eastern Nebraska and western Iowa in early December, essentially keeping many farmers out of the field until now. "It's been right at three months today since we combined any corn," said Kyle, 25, who farms with his dad and brother Kevin. The Bumsteds say they know of 25 to 30 farmers in their area who are in the same boat. Those who keep agricultural statistics for the two states, however, say the bulk of the corn harvest was completed by early January. According to surveys by the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska harvested 96 percent of its corn and Iowa completed 98 percent by January 4. "In Iowa, we pretty much got it done, but there's some pockets," said Brad Parks, deputy director of the agency's Iowa field office.

Parks and Scott Keller, a statistician with the Nebraska field office, noted that the mere fact that they were tracking harvest progress in January tells the story. Usually they're done with crop progress reports by early December. Keller said he doesn't know the last time his office issued a harvest report in January. The Bumsteds figure they'll have to wait at least another week before they can harvest corn. They farm hilly ground, where the snow seems to be lingering. Neighbors who farm bottom ground have been able to return to the fields sooner. Although the weather has been hard on the corn, the grain is well worth harvesting, they said. "We'll get what we can get and hope for the best," said Kyle Bumsted. "That's my paycheck," said Bob Bumsted. Now the Bumsteds are starting to worry about spring mud and the need to clear the fields in time for planting. They've already decided to hire out their fertilizer application so they can keep combining. "We've got roughly 50 to 60 days before corn planting season," said Kyle Bumsted. "Worst case scenario, we'll be combining at the same time we need to be planting." It's been a pretty grumpy winter - "just ask my wife," said Bob Bumsted, who never before had a harvest go past Christmas. Now he's just hoping to get his crop in the bin before his birthday. He turns 55 on March 30.

Lean hog trade appears to have topped and has held a flat to lower tone this week. Granted we do remain above most support levels so chart support could still show up this week into early next. The weekly net futures changes are 55 lower on April heading into Thursday’s trade and June is down 122. Cash trade will likely be steady to lower the rest of the week. Pork carcass values slipped giving packers little reason to pay up for live supplies, and they have retreated a little bit this week. We still advise selling is to sell light rallies that may occur in the futures near term, and hedgers view this past week and the very near future as the best point to lock in profitable margins.

CATTLE 3/11/10 Live cattle trade has held the firmer trend due to chart buying and supportive fundamentals, but no real fresh news has been around. The weekly net changes heading into Thursday are 95 higher on April Live Cattle, June are 15 higher and May Feeder Cattle are 90 lower. There is light downward momentum, due to some weakness on Wednesday, even though we are holding above support levels on most contracts. This has been a big rally in the futures, so further profit taking may be needed to actually change the trends to lower before the week is over. Concerns in regard to the rally in futures and beef prices outpacing demand may illustrate themselves with a further correction near term. May Feeder Cattle rallied from $94 to $107, a correction down to $102 would not be out of line even if you want

to remain a cattle bull looking forward this year. Cash trade has been called steady to $1 higher this week due to short bought packers, but so far we have not seen any sizeable trade. Packers likely do not want to risk negative margins by paying higher prices, but feedlot managers remain optimistic since they were able to force $92 trade late last week. The cutout was mixed on Wednesday with choice down 2 at 149.49 and select was up 18 at 149.20. The cutout remains at good levels, but we usually do not like seeing the select in line with choice. Hedgers call with questions, even if you want to remain friendly you can look to use options, call us to discuss your individual situation. This includes an opportunity for Cow Calf operators wanting to hedge fall feeders. Open . . . . .94.400 High . . . . .94.600 Low . . . . .93.800 Close . . . . .93.875 Chg . . . . . .-0.525

Wheat trade is lower on the week after three days of trade due to chart selling and the USDA giving us a 1 billion bushel carryover figure on the monthly Supply and Demand Estimates released on Wednesday. The net weekly changes on the May contracts are 12 lower in Chicago, KC is down a dime and Minneapolis is down 6 cents. The spring wheat has advanced on the winter wheat contracts, but lower overall prices may lead to lower spring wheat acres. The market will debate about this over the coming weeks. The May Chicago contract printed a new low for the move but appeared to find support. Chicago futures are down nearly 50 cents from the high printed on March 1, down $1.05 from the early January high and down around $1.40 from the November high, so we are pricing-in negative items. The market may bounce, but after a light near term bounce the only question is why do we need to find support? The USDA brought the US carryover up to 1.001 billion bushels; domestic usage totals around 2 billion and expected production this year is estimated at just under 2 billion bushels. Wheat needs to make its way in feed ration to lower our carryovers, but that would help give us a downward spiral along with the row crops if we start taking away traditional feed grain usage. The March USDA Global Carryover jumped 1 million metric tons up to 196.8 million tons. U.S. wheat remains more expensive than our world competitors with Black Sea wheat trading at a $25-$60 discount per ton over the past several months. There have also been some reports out of Europe that available stocks will not decline as much as originally thought as wheat acres have been expanded there and weather has been beneficial to winter wheat growing conditions. The weekly export sales were reported at 407,900 tons of old crop and 40,500 tons of new crop which was at the high end of expectations, but this does not change the bigger bearish picture. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade has been lower this week due to a negative USDA report and chart selling. The weekly net change, after three days of trade, is around a dime lower. On the bright side we did not seriously challenge the February lows and the market is concerned about wet planting weather. This may limit downside, but we are still concerned the market may need to find a trading range which involves lower lows. The USDA released their March World Supply and Demand Estimates Wednesday morning. They revised the final 2009 production number as announced following the January report. The revised production estimate was 20 million bushels lower than the January number which was around 50 million bushels less versus market expectations. The 2009/10 March carryover grew by 70 million versus last month up to 1.799 million; this was due to lower usage/ample world supplies. We also saw a 6 million metric ton jump in the global carryover up to 140 million tons. The weekly export sales were only 338,600 tons which was below expectations. The poor weekly sales report along with a net negative soybean report should be negative for the grain trade the rest of the week. In the near term/rest of March, trade should remain sideways with a chance of printing a new low for the move. A flat market with maybe a bounce could occur here due to weather/planting uncertainties, since the energies have held up. Weather and the planted acreage should control where we go over the next month, but the good world supplies, slipping ethanol margins, and the poor U.S. exports should limit upside. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has held up this week despite downside moves in wheat and corn, but it is still hard to paint a bullish picture for beans looking forward. The weekly May contract net changes heading into Thursday are 15 higher in beans, meal is $1.50 higher and soybean oil is up around 100 points. The monthly USDA report was mixed for beans with the domestic carryover at 190 million bushels versus 210 last month and an average trade guess of 195 million. The global carryover number jumped to 60.67 million tons, up nearly 1 million tons from last month due to a 1 million ton jump in the Brazilian production. So some positive near term items remain, but the bigger picture is negative as South American beans are now becoming available. The next report to look forward to is the quarterly stocks and March planting intentions report at the end of the month. Early expectations ahead of the March 31 USDA Planting Intention should be mostly higher than the 77 million number from the USDA Outlook Forum. We are in the camp the soybean acreage will be closer to 79 million than 77 million acres. The soybean planted number could still grow if the wet weather persists over the next several weeks and corn planting is delayed. So a bullish grain argument near term due to wet weather should really be viewed as negative for beans, which the market has not really been talking about. The bullish soy oil market and biodiesel future usage have allowed that market to move to new highs on Wednesday and keep the soy market from falling apart. We continue to have bigger supply side items in our vision that cloud any bullish argument near-term. The global carryover over 60 million tons is an item that has my demand expectations for the new crop year down and our acreage should be up raising the carryover an easy 150 million bushels versus this past year and maybe as much as 300 million. The weekly export sales report seen Thursday morning may be a start to a pattern of upcoming negative news. Over 250,000 tons of China and “Unknown” sales cancelations gave us a net negative weekly total at 115,800 tons for 2009/10, but new crop sales were at 65,000 tons. Meal sales were very low at 1,900 tons and bean oil sales were a negative 9,400 tons due to cancelations. Hedgers get caught up on desired sales levels if you have not, and do not be surprised for lower trade as we move through this month even though we have seen a few positive chart moves this week.

ISA advises successful spring planting will take patience and planning With memories of the last fall’s difficult harvest still all too vivid for farmers, this winter has presented its own challenges. And now, according to an Iowa meteorologist, a wet spring is predicted. “Soil moisture levels are at or above field capacity. It will not take abnormally high amounts of April precipitation to leave large portions of the Corn Belt too wet for effective planting,” said Elwynn Taylor, Iowa State University (ISU) ag meteorologist. “The El Niño weather of February brought substantial moisture in a band across the southern United States. As the weather patterns migrate north in the spring, a wet planting season is a threat.” One of challenges facing farmers will be compaction. “Farmers did what they had to do to get crops out last fall, but there will be ramifications,” said David Write, Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) director of production Research. “Heavy wagons, trucks, grain carts and combines moving across wet ground all contributed to soil compaction. There are now some things farmers need to watch for in the 2010 soybean crop.” The heavy snow accumulation is going to cause further complications this spring. If the water from melting snow isn’t able to percolate down through the soil, fields will be wet, even without excessive additional rainfall. This will put additional pressure on Iowa’s farmers to delay spring tillage to keep from further compacting the soil. “Spring is not the time to alleviate compaction, but farmers will want to avoid creating more compaction,” stated ISU Extension Ag Engineering Specialist Greg Brenneman. “With wetter soil, that is more of a challenge. I would advise farmers to not try to get out in the field very early. Doing so and working wet soil will create more compaction.” In particular, farmers who didn’t get to do as much field work as they would have liked last fall may feel like their window of opportunity is short. It will be a challenge to let fields dry out. “Soil has a natural way, through thawing and freezing, to remedy soil compaction and improve soil structure,” ISU Extension Agronomist Mahdi Al-Kaisi said. “Stable soil structure is like a building block formation that is able to hold up the weight of implements running over them,

while still forming conduits for water to move through and providing natural aeration for a root to grow. Because of the stable and strong soil structure, untilled soil can tolerate the weight of machinery. Tillage breaks up that soil structure, reducing the soil’s strength to hold the weight of heavy equipment.” While farmers think tillage will reduce soil compaction, Al-Kaisi stated it will actually only make it worse. It won’t cure the deep soil compaction and, by disturbing the upper soil layer, will destroy soil’s natural structure or soil aggregates and creates another layer of compaction under heavy rain and field traffic. “Put simply, the more wheels and machinery that move over wet soil, the more compaction will take place,” ISU Extension Field Agronomist John Holmes said. “Avoid making any more trips than absolutely necessary across a field with wet soil. “This may be a year for farmers who work their soil to try doing less tillage than they normally would,” Holmes continued. “For instance, if they didn’t get chiseling done last fall, they may forego it this spring and just do the secondary tillage just before planting to prepare the seedbed. Though it might be a challenging year to try something new, they may decide to try some no-till, especially in soybeans, where they didn’t get fall tillage done or in fields where corn didn’t get combined until spring.” Holmes added, “In parts of the state where farmers feel they must do something, this is a year when an implement called a rotary harrow might be useful, though in most of the state, these are not common.” Not the same as a rotary hoe, the rotary harrow has single lines of heavy teeth that poke holes in the ground without stirring it up and allows water to penetrate. It can dry out the ground and yet isn’t aggressive. Though researchers have documented the yield benefits of early planting, agronomists emphasize it is more important the soil is ready. A few days can make a tremendous difference in the soil’s condition. “Being patient will pay off,” Al-Kaisi stated. “Farmers need to know their own soil and their fields.” Planted in wet fields, young soybean seedlings could have problems with root development, which may, in turn lead to further problems. “I’d encourage farmers to plant seed with

excellent resistance to diseases,” Holmes advised. “Since the seed will likely be going in a cold, damp soil, it would be a good idea to treat it with a fungicide.” “There is no question that seed treatments can increase yield in fields where risk of seedling diseases are high,” stated ISU Plant Pathologist X.B. Yang. “Seed treatment will not improve germination rate, but will protect against further stand loss if fields have a history of damping off and the spring is wet. If the planting season is going to be cool and wet, the value of using treated seeds increases.” “Wet, saturated soil conditions at planting can increase the risk of damping-off caused by Pythium and Phytophthora,” stated ISU Plant Pathologist Alison Robertson. “These pathogens cause similar symptoms on soybean seedlings, and lab tests are usually required to distinguish which pathogen is present. Pythium prefers cooler, saturated soils and is more of a problem in early planted beans. Phytophthora may be an issue when the soil is warmer and saturated.” According to Robertson, soybean varieties with resistance to Phytophthora pathogen are available, but varieties with resistance to Pythium are not available. “Seed treatments can reduce risk of early season damping off from both diseases. Growers should consider a seed treatment if particular fields have a history of damping off,” Robertson said. “As the season progresses, there may be further effects from the winter that will pose problems later in the summer,” Wright stated. “For instance, we don’t yet know the impact of all the snow cover on the overwintering of the bean leaf beetle or aphids. Soybeans planted in compacted fields that have experienced problems with root development may be susceptible to problems with foliar diseases like sudden death syndrome (SDS). While SDS infection occurs shortly after germination, symptoms may not be apparent until later in the summer. “Additionally, if the young seedling roots have difficulty taking up enough potassium, those soybeans could be more attractive to soybean aphids later in the summer. There may also be issues of delayed maturity.” Time will tell on some of those issues. For now, Holmes summed up what farmers can do: “Be aware that compacted soil is wet soil. Try not to make the compaction worse. Wait until the soil is drier. Plant seed with excellent resistance to diseases. Since it will be going into cold, damp soil, treat seed with a fungicide and avoid making any more trips than absolutely necessary across a field with wet soil.”

Projecting 2010 demand for Iowa crops ISU economist says corn likely to gain some acreage Demand for Iowa crops has been helped by outside influences, especially the recovery in energy prices. Ethanol margins have moved above breakeven and support for biofuels has been boosted by the substantial rise in crude oil prices over the past year, according to Chad Hart, Iowa State University Extension grain marketing economist. “The energy price recovery has helped ethanol margins remain positive over the past several months. Biofuels continue to see support from higher energy prices,” he stated. The turnaround has allowed U.S. ethanol production to continue growing. According to Hart, ethanol

now ranks second only to livestock feed in demand for corn. “Projections for the 2009 crop show more than 4 billion bushels of corn heading to ethanol plants,” Hart said. “Looking beyond to the 2010 and 2011 crop years, ethanol demand will continue to build with the Renewable Fuels Standard.” In 2010, that standard requires production of 12.95 billion gallons of renewable fuels, up from 11.1 billion gallons in 2009. Hart said corn-based ethanol will account for much of the conventional biofuel portion of the standard, increasing corn demand for ethanol to 4.4 billion bushels in 2010 and 4.6 billion bushels in 2011. “Based on the standard, by 2015, more than 5 billion bushels of corn could be used for ethanol production,” he stated. Corn feed and residual demand is another projected increase over last year, Hart said. Feed demand,

however, has declined with the financial woes facing the livestock industry. “Poultry, dairy, pork and beef producers have been reducing numbers,” he said. “From higher feed costs, lowered demand with the recession and the H1N1 outbreak, the livestock industry has encountered wave after wave of troubling news.” But, Hart added, futures prices for livestock and feed products at the close of 2009 suggest reason to hope for a rebound in the livestock industry moving through the summer. One sign of coming improvements is the projection for increased meat export demand with the drop in value of the U.S. dollar. For corn, livestock feed remains the largest demand category. “But it is also the demand category with the weakest outlook,” Hart said. “If the improved margins fail to materialize, feed demand will slip further.” Corn export demand is expected to rebound as well, also supported by the continued weakness in the U.S. dollar as well as recent approvals of GM corn varieties in Mexico and the European Union. For soybeans, exports are “the big story,” Hart stated. The strength of export demand has led the U.S. Department of Agriculture to increase its soybean export estimate several times. By example, he said China has already purchased more soybeans from the United States than Iowans produced in 2009. But, he added, Brazil and Argentina have shifted more area to soybean production, which will mean competition for U.S. growers. A potential for a recordsetting South American soybean crop has contributed to futures prices favoring corn for 2010, Hart said. He added, “But crop input costs have come down from last year’s highs, improving the economic outlook for both crops.” Estimates from ISU Extension show per-bushel costs of roughly $3.50 for corn and $8.67 for soybeans. Based on projected prices and costs, Hart said corn also holds a return advantage going into 2010. “So corn will likely gain acreage from soybeans and other crops in 2010,” he said. “But the land shifts will not be dramatic. Given the situation today, I expect corn plantings to be around 90 million acres, with soybean area falling to 77 million acres. As in previous years, other crops will lose area to corn and soybeans.”

Registration deadline for ag youth institute is April 30, 2010 Jeff Ward, executive director of the Iowa Agricultural Development Authority (IADA) announced that applications are now available for the 30th annual Iowa Agricultural Youth Institute (IAYI). The registration deadline is April 30. The 30th annual conference will be June 14-17, 2010. High school sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to attend IAYI, that takes place on the Iowa State University campus. The IAYI educates and enlightens Iowa high school students on the importance of agriculture to all Iowans, and the nation. Students will learn about the extensive opportunities in the agricultural industry, discuss important issues facing the agricultural industry and develop vital leadership skills during the four-day IAYI conference. Highlights of this year's IAYI include two agricultural topics: - Should manure be applied to frozen or snow covered ground? - Does the use of antibiotics in livestock have a significant impact on antibiotic effectiveness in humans? Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a team-building course, debate issues at the State Capitol, participate in a roundtable discussion with Iowa commodity representatives and enjoy a conference banquet and dance. The Iowa Agricultural Youth Institute is sponsored by the Iowa Agricultural Development Authority in partnership with many Iowa agribusinesses and commodity organizations. For an application or to learn more about the IAYI, contact the IADA office at 515-281-6444 or log onto www.iada.state.ia.us.

Iowa Learning Farm offers DVD of tips for no-till planting Members of the Iowa Learning Farm team have created a DVD containing pointers for adjusting a planter for no-till farming systems. The “Converting Your Planter for No-till Operation” DVD contains instructions for getting optimum results from your planter in a no-till system. It is available from the Iowa Learning Farm for free. Iowa State University Agricultural and Biosystems Engineer Mark Hanna is featured on the video footage offering his expertise on the planter in order for it to accomplish three key responsibilities in a no-till system: planting seed at a uniform depth, closing the furrow so that the seed is in proper contact with soil to start germination, and maintaining uniform seed spacing. Hanna offers tips and simple checks for successful planting on two different planter configurations, depending on the style of implement. He covers tips on leveling the planter frame, down pressure on depth gauge wheels, adjustments of seed openers and closing systems, and use of attachments such as row cleaners and fertilizer injectors. “In a no-till situation, the planter is the key to successful no-till,” states Hanna on the video. “It is the only time you have to move the soil to get the seed established. So treating the planter with respect and paying attention to some finer adjustments can really have big dividends.” In a no-till system, the soil is not disturbed before planting, except for perhaps injecting fertilizer. A coulter or disk seed-furrower opens a narrow strip for planting. Other tillage is eliminated entirely and residue from the previous crop year remains on the soil’s surface. No-till has many benefits including improved soil productivity, increased organic matter, and improved water infiltration. This system conserves energy by reducing passes across the field, improves soil tilth and soil organic matter. It can also reduce the capital costs associated with equipment used in conventional tillage. The planter DVD is available at no charge by request, and can also be seen on YouTube. To request a planter DVD, e-mail the Iowa Learning Farm at ilf@iastate.edu, be sure to include a mailing address; or write to Iowa Learning Farm, 2101 Agronomy Hall, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011. For more information about the Iowa Learning Farm, visit the web site at: www.extension.iastate.edu/ilf. Iowa Learning Farm is a partnership between the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa State University Extension, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Iowa Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Iowa Department of Natural Resources; in cooperation with Conservation Districts of Iowa and the Iowa Farm Bureau.

Former Spirit Lake FFA member returns to SAE program Jewell builds online bait shop You can buy leeches and worms online? According to Mark Jewell, of Jewell Outdoors, www.jewelloutdoors.com, the answer is always yes! While many people who grow up in agriculture are involved in typical farming operations like dairy, beef, or crop production. Mark’s story is a little different. “Growing up as the son of a leech farmer was an experience very few friends could relate to,” said Jewell. Nicknames like “leech guy” or “leech wrangler” were common. This experience, coupled with a life changing FFA career, set Jewell on the path to where he is today.

In FFA, his Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program was based in Specialty Animal Production (Entrepreneurship). “We raised and trapped thousands of pounds of leeches. The educational opportunity available through FFA taught me the value of owning and operating my own business,” Jewell stated. “Not only did I win awards because of my SAE, I learned the value of a good idea, an honest day’s work, and record keeping.” Jewell decided to take his passion for web and social media marketing, and combine it with his many connections in the live fishing bait industry. The product is Jewell Outdoors, a 21st century online bait shop that delivers live bait direct to the front doors of people who fish. “In 2009, we tested the waters of selling live bait online,” Jewell said, “and the result was growing to a customer base of nearly 500 people, in 25 states.” Jewell Outdoors uses You Tube to showcase how they catch and process their products, twitter to engage in conversation, facebook to find new fishing friends, and a tailored social network for customers who want more. This year, Jewell Outdoors is adding a new service of value to FFA members in many states. The company is offering to help FFA chapters raise

money by participating in its new Partners Program. Agriculture teachers can register their chapters and receive a special promotional code. FFA members can then share this information with family members, neighbors and friends. Each time that chapter’s code is used, Jewell Outdoors tracks the sale and pays the chapter a 10 percent commission. An announcement about the program is available on You Tube. The specialty products of Jewell Outdoors are leeches and Canadian Night Crawlers, although the line is quickly expanding. “More than 50,000 pounds of leeches will get used in the United States every summer,” Jewell stated. “We’ve captured the online market for these little suckers by providing a superior live bait product, and ridiculously courteous customer service. “We evaluate our leeches and night crawlers like producers evaluate cattle. We also offer the unique service of shipping direct to your front door, place of work, or fishing destination. Our concern for customers is top priority.” Jewell Outdoors will soon be offering an extended line of fishing, hunting and camping gear. However, just like the FFA, and agriculture industry, they will stay true to their roots, and continue to provide live bait better than anyone else.

Letter to the Editor Writer says America not given accurate information about farming and food safety Randy Dreher, Audubon

+RVWHGE\+HDUWODQG(OLWH 

Check Us Out On The Web @ www.iowafarmandranch.com

Farming is bad for America… according CBS and several other media outlets. Five times in the past few weeks, programs have aired that question the safety of our food and the integrity of the farmers that produce it. As a fifth generation farmer myself, I am concerned that America is not being given accurate information about farming and food safety today. Being a fifth generation family farmer and living on a century farm is no task to take lightly. My greatgrandparents and grandparents lived through the Great Depression and my parents survived the farm recession of the ‘80’s. My ancestors picked corn by hand, wore out scoop shovels, used horses to work the ground, milked cows by hand, and baled hay the hard way. While we still work hard on the farm, we’ve found better ways to raise crops and care for our livestock. That’s good news for anyone who cares about food safety. We raise both crops and livestock on our diversified family farm and this winter has certainly been a challenge. Record snowfalls in December, coupled with bitter cold temperatures and power outages from our most recent ice storms have made caring for our livestock tough. For producers, animal husbandry and care is a priority. We work seven days-a-week to keep our livestock fed, watered, and healthy.

I also rely on the knowledge that’s been passed down to me from previous generations and the recommendations of my veterinarian and other animal experts to assure the well being of my animals. When it is necessary to use antibiotics, we work closely with our veterinarian to choose the appropriate treatment(s) so our livestock does not suffer and to prevent consumers from eating meat from unhealthy animals. Today’s farmers also understand “buzz words” that corporate America is tossing around today like “Best Management Practices” (BMP). Because of this, farmers voluntarily enroll in programs that improve water quality, conserve our land, and provide habitat for wildlife. Another way we implement BMP is through voluntary and non-profit programs such as the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) and Pork Quality Assurance (PQA) programs. Farmers are trained on BMP to keep livestock healthy, treat them when they are sick, and make sure we’re producing safe and nutritious dietary protein. My wife and I are expecting our first child in April, who will be the sixth generation of our family to be raised on a farm. As a farmer, I hope to pass on this land, and the legacy that carries with it, to my children and grandchildren. Rain or shine, I work with integrity and dedication ever day to care for and manage the crops and livestock on my farm. I do it for my family and for yours.

Iowa 4-H volunteer continues family tradition by Rebecca Chaney, National 4-H Council The saying goes, “The apple doesn't fall far from the tree,” and in Linda Hedges’ case, nothing could be truer. A 20-year 4-H volunteer from Jefferson, Hedges is proud that she comes from a family with a history rich in 4-H. Hedges grew up in the 4-H program in Greene County, where her mother found time to be a 4-H volunteer, while raising eight kids. She even has an award pin her late father received for showing beef in the 1930s. Still a resident of Greene County, Hedges continues her family's 4-H tradition; she and her husband, Randy, are leaders of the Greenbrier 4-H Club - 32 kids strong. “I was a nine-year member of 4-H and I like what I learned from it,” said Hedges. “I wanted to help my children, as well as others, learn more about communication, leadership and citizenship, while working in project areas like foods, clothing and animal science.” The 4-H enthusiast said the organization develops responsibility, teamwork and communication skills in young people. “4-H is a unique organization where time is taken to let young and old youth of differing abilities and interests learn to work together for the betterment of society,” said Hedges. “Under good leadership, these youth see the value of caring for others, working together, making good decisions, while they are learning about subject matter of interest to them - leading to a career choice in the future.” Hedges stated that being a volunteer is investing in the country by helping youth become responsible adults, with the skills to make a living and be active participants in their communities. She said she believes “4-H can change a child's world.”

“Every child should have the opportunity to experience the warm feeling of a caring adult that they know supports him or her and will help guide them in learning,” Hedges said. “There are so many options in 4-H to offer kids, but we need good mentors to guide them. It is fun to watch youth grow and learn, and accomplish things they never thought they could.” Iowa State University (ISU) Extension 4-H Youth Development Program Specialist Annette Brown said she believes that it takes committed volunteers like Hedges to have a successful 4-H program. “Linda is dedicated, reliable, patient, and caring,” said Brown. “She values positive Greene County 4-H volunteer Linda Hedges, far left, shows 4-H memyouth development which can bers Jamie Theulen and Cole Schmidt how to make pillow cases using be seen in the 4-H'ers she has the “hotdog method” on a sewing machine.

Photo submitted During the 20 years Brown has worked with Hedges, she's seen firsthand how “There are motivational speakers and others who Hedges had juggled many clubs and 4-H activities. tell 4-H success stories, or how 4-H has benefited “Linda most definitely makes a difference in the their community, companies or work places. It is lives of the youth she touches through 4-H,” inspiring to hear how the hard work put in by 4-H Brown said. “Youth are learning leadership, com- leaders is recognized across the country.

She and Saturday, February 27, at Des Moines Area her husband were inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame and join 10,000 other Iowan 4-H volunCommunity College Campus. “The biggest reason I like to attend is the teers in their commitment to youth across the encouragement I receive each year,” said Hedges. state.

Sac County volunteer gives back to 4-H program Each year nearly 10,000 volunteers contribute their time, energy and expertise to help Iowa youth build life skills through 4-H learning experiences. And Barb Determan knows why they volunteer. It’s about giving. “I wanted to give back to 4-H. Our family has gotten a lot of good out of it. I want to share that with other kids,” Determan said. That’s why the Sac County woman serves as a trustee on the Iowa 4-H Foundation board, judges 4-H communication projects at the Iowa State Fair and is midway through her 29th year as an Iowa 4-H club leader. “I really enjoy working with the kids,” she said, but that’s only part of the appeal. Far beyond the enjoyment, 4-H has given Determan a lifetime of value, the long-time volunteer said. “I have had great opportunities,” she said. Growing up in Illinois, Determan participated in 4-H for nine years, even attending the National 4-H Congress. As a student at the University of Illinois, she lived in the 4-H House, a sorority for former 4-H members. When she married an Iowa farmer and moved to Sac County, she called the ISU Extension office right away to get involved as a 4-H leader. Her husband, Steve Determan, became a 4-H leader as well. Their three children — Kourtney, Dan and Andy — now adults, all participated in 4-H as youth and were state project winners. “More important, they learned so many skills in 4-H — especially communication, leadership and community service,” Determan said. “4-H taught them how to give.”

4-H clubs expose kids to things they might not try otherwise, allowing them to develop interests they didn’t know they had and learn skills they can use for a lifetime, Determan continued. “4-H is the premier youth development organization. We work with kids from a very young age, making it comfortable for them to become leaders, communicators and [better] citizens,” she stated. Determan’s club, the Early Achievers, is a multiage club. She’s been a 4-H leader long enough that she’s now working with the children of some of her earlier 4-H club graduates. “That’s a huge honor for me - to have the second generation of 4H’ers,” Determan said. Iowa 4-H Youth Development programs are delivered primarily through caring adults, and these volunteers make a positive difference in the lives of Iowa’s young people. However, the adults

also gain from the experience, according to a study of 4-H volunteers from Iowa and other Midwestern states. They reported that through volunteering with 4-H, they had improved their organizational and management skills, their ability to speak in public and their ability to lead and teach others. To learn about volunteer opportunities with Iowa 4-H visit www.extension.iastate.edu/ 4h/Volunteers/

“It’s all about giving,” Determan says Barb Determan of Sac County serves as a trustee on the Iowa 4-H Foundation board. Photo submitted

Gala nets more than $20,000 for Iowa 4-H The “Keeping it Green” gala brought in the green financially for Iowa 4-H in February. The first-of-its-kind event raised more than $20,000 for the Iowa State University Extension 4H Youth Development program. More than 150 4-H supporters gathered on Saturday, February 20, at the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines to raise funds for 4-H and honor the Iowa 4-H Foundation’s 60th anniversary. “It’s exciting to have a first-ever gala for Iowa 4H and to have this opportunity to tell our 4-H story,” said Shelly Greving, marketing coordinator for the Iowa 4-H Foundation. “We appreciate the support we received from the attendees that evening and their continued support throughout the year.” Monsanto, dhg Productions, Heartland Marketing, Latham Hybrid Seeds, Mass Mutual, Pioneer, Farmer’s Cooperative and Iowa 4-H Foundation Executive Director Joe Leisz were table sponsors for the inaugural event, providing key support to ensure the event’s success. The business-formal event attracted current and potential business supporters, top 4-H donors and past trustees. Throughout the afternoon, the Iowa 4-H E-SET program (Extension Science, Engineering and Technology) conducted a robotics challenge featuring five 4-H clubs from across the state. “The energy was high, youth were engaged and the challenges were solved,” said Greving. “Science Center patrons enjoyed watching the youth build their robots and compete in the challenges. When awards were presented, a high-five line congratulated each of the participants — not your traditional handshake!” The gala officially began at 6:30 p.m. Three silent auction tables included wine tasting packages, theatre tickets, Iowa stay-cations and more. The live auction portion of the evening included a wide selection of items. Decadent desserts, trips to Colorado, hand-made jewelry and private helicopter rides over the Des Moines area were some of the attendees’ favorites. The night concluded with a special performance by the 4-H Green Man Group, the 4-H rendition of the popular Blue Man Group. “Iowa’s outstanding 4-H youth are learning skills that will position them to become the next generation of leaders in our state,” Greving said. “They have interests in science, communication, photography, nutrition, education and much, much more. This event supported these areas, and the future of 4-H youth.” The Iowa 4-H Foundation provides the financial resources to develop and deliver quality 4-H youth programs throughout the state of Iowa. The opportunities provided by the Foundation help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.
