Growing resurgence in square bales Forage report shows no evidence of winter damage to Iowa’s pastures, hay fields By Gordon Wolf As the western Iowa landscape transitions from brown to lush green and cattle return to the pastures, livestock producers can expect much the same grazing conditions as last year. Dr. Stephen K. Barnhart, professor of agronomy at Iowa State University (ISU), has not heard evidence of winter damage to Iowa's pasture lands and added that the hay fields seem to have survived the winter well. "There is no indication there will be less grass than last year," he stated. However, the higher price of fertilizer will determine whether producers will choose to apply nitrogen to their pastures. Dr. Barnhart, who is responsible for the ISU Extension program in forage production and management, annually recommends that producers delay nitrogen application on pastures until early May to the latter part of May to help spread the spring growth of grass to make it more uniformly available. With the cool-season forages commonly used, producers typically have an early spring forage surplus without applying fertilizer. The demand for hay could increase as some states to southwest are experiencing dry weather. In Kansas, 20 western counties were placed under a drought warning and the surrounding 27 counties were placed under a drought watch, according to an April 7 declaration issued by Kansas Governor Sam Brownback. Additionally, as of April 5, the U.S. Drought Monitor, based at the University of NebraskaLincoln, listed severe drought for agriculture (crops, pastures and grasslands) in southwestern Kansas, eastern Colorado and portions of New Mexico, Oklahoma and Arkansas; and areas of extreme drought for agriculture in Arizona, New Continued on Page 18 Cattle graze in a pasture in western Iowa last July. Livestock producers can expect pastures to produce the same amount of grass as last year as they seem to have survived the winter well. Photo by Gordon Wolf

A fresh look at nutrition in American lamb If you’re trying to improve your diet and don’t want to compromise taste or variety, consider American lamb. It’s a refreshingly tasty and healthful alternative to other meats and proteins. Seven American lamb cuts including leg shank, leg sirloin, whole leg (shank and sirloin), loin, whole shoulder (arm and blade), shoulder arm, and shoulder blade meet government guidelines for leanness when trimmed of visible fat and roasted. These cuts have less than 200 calories and the average 3-ounce serving of these cuts contains just 175 calories. American lamb is naturally nutrient rich, which means it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals your body requires. These American lamb cuts are an excellent source of:

• protein (47% DV) • vitamin B12 (36% DV) • niacin (26% DV) • selenium (38% DV) • zinc (32% DV) These lean cuts of American lamb are a good source of: • iron (10% DV) • riboflavin (13% DV) American lamb’s combination of nutrients can play a powerful role in issues facing many of us today. Eating healthy, flavorful protein like lamb can help you feel satisfied and contribute to weight loss. Lamb can feed the brain – the zinc and iron lamb provides are needed for proper cognitive development, which is important for learning and memory function (3,4). Iron from

meat sources like lamb is also better absorbed by the body than iron from plant sources and is essential for carrying oxygen to cells for energy production. Both iron and vitamin B12 contained in lamb help prevent anemia and the fatigue that comes with it. Finally, lamb is rich in selenium, an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage that may lead to heart disease, cancer or other health problems. American lamb can be a flavorful part of a healthy, balanced diet and fits into a healthy, balanced eating pattern as defined by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) My Pyramid.

CRP mid-contract management required, promotes wildlife By Jason Johnson, Public Affairs Specialist, USDA-NRCS Landowners with Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts are required to apply mid-contract management practices to their CRP land including disking, burning, spraying or interseeding to help establish plants and to assure an early successful plant growth stage. The time period for applying these practices depends on the individual practice. However, these activities cannot be performed during the nesting or brood rearing season of May 15 through August 1, according to John Myers with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Landowners are not required to annually apply management practices, but they must complete them prior to the seventh year of a 10-year contract and prior to the 10th year of a 15-year contract. “CRP mid-contract management will increase plant species and structural diversity,” said Myers. “It will also provide wildlife early use of the vegetation, habitat for declining species, and remove duff and control woody vegetation.” Myers says managing plant communities is beneficial, if not essential, for grassland bird species like meadowlarks, quail and pheasants. “More diverse grasslands provide all the lifecycle habitat requirements for multiple species in a small area,” he said. NRCS Standards and Specifications will be used to apply mid-contract management options. The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) can provide 50 percent cost-share for the following activities: Shallow Disking Disking CRP stands that are three years or older at a two- to four-inch depth may be

necessary to increase open ground and encourage a diverse plant community of annual and perennial plants. NRCS requires disking just one-third of the field at a time and rotating the disked areas in strips no more than 75 feet wide across the field. “An area twice the width of the disked area should be left between the strips,” said Mark Lindflott, state biologist with NRCS in Iowa. “The disked area should provide no more than 50 percent bare ground, leaving at least 50 percent ground cover to prevent soil erosion.” Prescribed Burning Prescribed burning is used to remove excess litter, which may reduce the quality of wildlife habitat. Controlled fire can also allow germination of seed bearing annuals and wildflowers, increase plant species diversity, control unwanted woody cover, and open up CRP stands for movement of small animals and birds. Burns must be completed according to a Prescribed Burn Plan that meets the technical specifications of the Iowa NRCS conservation plan standard. Prescribed Burning job sheets are available at your local NRCS office. Herbicides Selected herbicides can be used to manipulate plant succession and improve habitat diversity. NRCS recommends treating up to one-third of a field at a time, spraying from August 2 to September 30 or from October 1 to May 14. For cool season introduced grass stands, spraying should be done in blocks or strips up to 50 feet wide, interspersed with non-treated blocks or strips equal to twice the sprayed strip width. Stands of native grasses or mixed stands of grasses should be sprayed in narrow strips of

Trottin’ for Taylor Mohr to ride horse across Iowa to raise money and awareness for Batten Disease by Emma Struve One Ute family’s struggle with a rare genetic disorder has led matriarch Tammy Mohr to embark on an across-Iowa trail ride this summer. The primary purpose of the equine trail ride, called “Trottin’ for Taylor”, from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River is to raise awareness about Batten Disease and money, which will be donated to the University of Iowa for ongoing research into the illness. Dr. Beverly L. Davidson, Ph.D., with the University of Iowa, who conducts research on Infantile and Late-Infantile Batten Disease along with other genetically inherited neurologically degenerative diseases, will join Mohr riding during the last leg of the journey. Davidson explained that Batten Disease is a recessive genetic disease, which means both parents have to be a carrier of the same genetic mutation that then has to be passed along to their child for the child to be affected by the disease. Carriers do not express any symptoms. Batten Disease comes in a spectrum of types and may be caused by a mutation in any one of seven genes; taken together, Batten Disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in children, Davidson stated. Mohr’s seven-year-old grandson Taylor was diagnosed with Late-Infantile Batten Disease when he was just four years old, though symptoms started to become apparent 18 months earlier. As she describes it, the disease robbed the vital, active boy who, even as a toddler, loved to ride horses and four wheelers, of his sight, the ability to talk, and eventually the ability to move independently. In a letter explaining her cause – “Trottin’ for Taylor” Mohr explained, “Today, at seven, Taylor is bedridden, blind, on a feeding tube, can’t walk or talk, and his limbs are contracted… The one thing this disease has not robbed him of is his hearing. He loves to listen to music and movies.” Davidson illustrated that Batten Disease is caused by a protein deficiency in certain cells of the brain. The absent protein would be responsible for “garbage disposal in the cell.” Since it is not there, a back up of toxic “garbage” occurs in the

cells that causes the cells to die. This cell death causes the loss of vision, seizures and psychological development problems. “Generally, children do pretty well the first few years but as they become older, they become more debilitated,” Davidson stated. In Late-Infantile Batten Disease the life expectancy is just 10 to 15 years. Taylor, she said, has type 2 in which case symptoms first appear between 18 and 24 months of age. Children with Late-Infantile Batten Disease are born appearing normal. One of the first symptoms of the disease is that children exhibit a loss of developmental milestones. The progression is to then show additional developmental delays. While Mohr has been planning her journey to raise awareness and funds for research about the Batten Disease since December of 2010, she learned there are members of her community that were unaware of Taylor’s ongoing battle with his failing young body. According to the Batten Disease Support and Research Association (BDSRA) website, only two to four kids out of 100,000 are affected by the disease. The Batten Disease Support and Research Association is a support and educational organization first composed of the families of kids affected by Batten Disease. The BDSRA will be providing updates throughout Mohr’s trip at www.bdsra.org. Mohr wrote in an e-mail to the Denison Bulletin, it is her hope that through the trail ride “the love I have for the Lord, Taylor, my family and my passion for horses will be a witness to folks along the way. I am excited to meet new folks and share stories; everyone has a story.” The trip from the Missouri River to the Mississippi will start at Plattsmouth, Nebraska on Wednesday, June 1. Mohr plans to travel with three horses and a support crew driving a truck and horse trailer. Foe, the German shepherd mix that generally accompanies her on trail rides, will also be along for the expedition. Mohr’s mare, Cola, is one she raised from a colt; she is also the daughter of the first horse Mohr owned. Each day the group will travel between 20 and 25 miles, which Mohr estimates will take about

Overnight stops are planned for campgrounds, parks and in some cases, even fairgrounds, along the way. Mohr said the communities she has contacted in advance have been extremely welcoming and hospitable. Many have even provided accommodations for the horses. She invited those along the route to ride for any amount of time they can. “I know I can’t help Taylor,” Mohr said in an interview, “but maybe this, in some way, can help, if not him, than other kids.” Money raised during the “Trottin’ for Taylor” trail ride will be donated to Davidson’s research project. Davidson called Batten Disease a “uniformly fatal disorder.” She explained that her interest in the disease was spurred by an invitation from the BDSRA in the late 1990s to consider researching the disorder. Research Davidson is presently undertaking seeks to enable a few cells capable of manufacturing the missing protein at a “regionally ideal site” within the brain of Batten Disease affected individuals. The correctly working cells would imbue the cerebral-spinal fluid with the needed protein, or enzyme, thereby “bathing the brain” in it. Davidson remarked, “We know if we get the enzyme to the outside of the (incorrectly functioning) cell, it possesses the machinery to get inside.” She and her research team have tested the theory on mice and are now working with other larger animals that exhibit the same genetic mutation seen in children with Batten Disease. Until such a time as Davidson or other researchers develop a process to treat Batten Disease children affected by it only receive palliative care. She did note that genetic testing is available for parents to determine if they are potential carriers of the recessive genetic mutation responsible for causing Batten Disease. In the future it is hoped that Batten Disease will be among genetic diseases screened for in infants because if a treatment is developed early diagnosis will be key to successful application of the treatment. Mohr will be accepting donations on behalf of the University of Iowa at 42883 – 270th Street, Ute, IA 51060. Alternatively, donations may be sent directly to the University of Iowa at P.O. Box 4550, Iowa City, IA 52244. Donations should be made payable to University of Iowa Batten Research (in honor of Taylor Mohr).

Deadlines and dust When we moved to the farm in the fall of 2008, it was mostly finished except some painting, trim, a little wiring, and handrails that needed to be done. The bathrooms were done enough to be functional, except for the aforementioned trim and mirrors. But, they could be used. The kitchen was functionally done as well, except for handles on the cupboards. The one thing I wanted was for the house to be done before my oldest son, who was 10 at the time, was confirmed. The house for those two years pretty much sat undone, as projects around the farm were my husband’s priority. Farmers’ wives out there, raise your hand if your husband has rewired something in the barn before he managed to finish rewiring something that needed to be done in the house. Yep, I knew you were out there. We found out at the beginning of the year that my son would be confirmed on April 10th, and the race was on.

Much painting needed to be done before our contractor could come back and install the additional trim throughout the house. Ladies, let me emphasize that I do indeed know how to paint, but my husband prefers to do it himself. To accomplish the painting and trim work, rooms needed to be emptied out and refilled. So for the past two months my home has been in a constant state of disarray, causing an incredible amount of stress. Things have been found (that’s where the camera tripod was), and lost (my son’s Nintendo DS is now somewhere in the house, but I haven’t a clue where). Construction was going on up until last Friday, and the entire kitchen and living room were packed with various boxes and tubs waiting to be put away. I had made plans to do a final cleaning of the house on Friday so I could have a relaxing Saturday doing food p r e p a r a t i o n . Unfortunately, I hadn’t let my husband in on

those plans, and his plan was to finish all the construction that Friday, because then it would be done. Done is a funny, funny word. One would expect that when the house is “done” as the contractors leave, one would be ready for guests. Nope. All of those boxes and tubs needed to be put away before I could start cleaning to make it into “fake house” for visitors. You all know the “fake house” -- where everything is put away and looks lovely for visitors. I applaud those of you who have a perfectly clean house all the time, but I’ve learned that living on a farm, there’s going to be dust, and lots of it. I have found no way possible to prevent the dust, except me walking around the house constantly dusting! That’s not going to happen. Cleaning took most of Saturday. By around midnight, I was starting to make the food for Sunday. By around 3 a.m., I was too tired to move and passed out in

vegetables and put them with the dip. (Thanks again, by the way!) I gave people tours who hadn’t seen the house since we remodeled it. I think everyone had a pretty good time, even though everything wasn’t completely done (still no handles on the kitchen cabinets). My mom noticed that when my 8-year-old son swept the living room floor, he neglected to sweep under the china cabinet. She called it a “drive by” because she could see the path he took fairly easily. I have now learned I won’t get my farmer husband to finish some of the work inside the house without a large, looming deadline. I wonder if I can convince him that one of our sons is going to be confirmed every year. We do have a few things that still need to be done, that he wants to finish before July 4th -- his deadline. So, I told him we were having a party then. What do you want to bet there’s construction mess in the house on the third?

Free discussion with beginning farmers in Carroll Women invited April 27 Women who own or manage farmland in Carroll and neighboring counties, and new or beginning farmers interested in finding land to farm, are invited to participate in a free informal discussion on Wednesday, April 27, at St. John Lutheran Church in Carroll. Women now own or co-own nearly half the farmland in Iowa, and an increasing number of them are sole owners who rent their farmland to a tenant. As tenants age and retire, or women develop an interest in alternative forms of agriculture for their land, the opportunity arises for women landowners to help a new generation of farmers gain access to land. This gathering will be an informal discussion designed to allow women landowners the opportunity to talk about what they are looking for in a tenant. It will also be a chance for new and beginning farmers to share their goals and plans with the people who could be their future landlady, or who will have the same values and ideas that their future landlady will hold. This talk will be facilitated by female experts who can share resources available such as creative conservation-oriented farm leases, and other tools. All interested women are welcome, including owners, operators and inheritors of farmland, and new and beginning farmers, regardless of their degree of knowledge. A free lunch will be provided. In order for us to get an accurate meal count, please RSVP by Friday, April 22 , by emailing Lynn Heuss at lheuss@gmail.com, or by calling her at (515) 201-9405. The program begins with registration and coffee at 8:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall at St. John Lutheran Church in Carroll. The discussion will begin at 9 a.m., and will be guided by the interests of the participants. Possible topics of conversation can include different types of leases with tenants and other funding opportunities for new and beginning farmers. Participants will be asked to share their vision for farms and farming. Four of these meetings will be conducted all across Iowa each year from 2011 - 2013. This project is funded by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, Grant # 2010-49400-21843. These meetings are sponsored by Women, Food and Agriculture Network in partnership with Practical Farmers of Iowa. For more information about the program, call Lynn Heuss at 515-201-9405 or email lheuss@gmail.com.

2011 Crop season underway by Emma Struve Iowa State University Extension agronomists weighed in on early spring conditions as crop producers chomp at the bit to get into fields and started on work. Iowa Farm & Ranch surveyed specialists in western Iowa for their opinions on tillage practices, management priorities, weather, inputs and other recommendations. Contributing in April are: • Mark Licht – based in Carroll and serves the west central Iowa counties of Sac, Calhoun, Crawford, Carroll, Greene, Boone, Shelby, Audubon, Guthrie, Dallas, and Polk • John Holmes – based in Clarion and served the north central Iowa counties of Worth, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Humboldt, Wright, Franklin, Butler, Webster, Hamilton, Hardin, Grundy, and Story • Joel DeJong – based in LeMars and serves the northwest Iowa counties of Lyon, Osceola, Sioux, O'Brien, Plymouth, Cherokee, Woodbury, Ida, Monona, and Harrison To contact your local ISU Extension field agronomist, find their contact information at www.extension.iastate.edu/ag/fscrops/NewFiles/fs crops.html. Following are answers from the ISU field agronomists. Q. What spring tillage practices should farmers focus on this year? What could weather-necessitated contingencies be? A. Licht: It all depends on the preferences of the growers. Those that did some disk-ripping will likely be looking at full width field cultivation to level things and provide a uniform seed bed. Others will keep tillage to a minimum or do none at all. Holmes: I don’t see any new or unusual tillage practices being used. Right now, farmers are leveling fields that were corn last year and vripped. I expect them to work soybean stubble right before planting. Some farmers may want to try planting directly into soybean stubble rather than working the field prior to planting to save soil and fuel. DeJong: In this area we probably do less fall tillage than further west in Iowa. So, if spring tillage before planting – often a single pass – is going to be used, then some patience to be certain that it is not being done too wet would be helpful. We have started hauling some manure, but not much has happened yet, a little tillage late last week (April 4-8). Q. Given that harvest proceeded rapidly last year, and most producers seemed to be able to get fall field work done, how does that impact priorities for this spring? If producers have “extra” time, what could they do with it to gain the most benefit? A. Licht: Because the fall was good, there was a lot of fall work done, but this winter dragged on more than the previous winter and many didn’t get to do spring tiallage or anhydrous applications until last week. Having said that, most are anxious to get started with corn planting on Monday or Tuesday if the weather late last week didn’t slow them down. We’ve got a lot of data showing that planting corn between April 12 and May 12 is going to pay

back with higher yields; but also, soybean yields perform better if planted before May 12. So, realistically, growers are aiming to complete corn and soybean planting in a one month window, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for weather delays or other hold-ups. Holmes: Farmers are happy that they are not trying to do primary tillage this spring. I believe that everybody who wanted to apply fall anhydrous ammonia and manure was able to complete it last year. I’d recommend that farmers take some additional time, if necessary, to make certain that the planter is set correctly. They may also want to double-check the calibration on the planter. One thing that will undoubtedly happen is that pre-emergence herbicides will be applied PRIOR to planting and worked in, versus AFTER planting. DeJong: With extra time be certain your “pre” herbicides are applied, instead of going to a total “post” package. Be certain, and double certain, that the planter is set well and ready to go; maybe drive a little slower in the field with the planter to get it to operate well. Be patient so that planting soil conditions are very good. Q. Are there particular seed or soil management techniques that you envision will be important this spring? A. Licht: I’d be hesitant using too many seed treatments. We know that fungicidal and insecticidal seed treatments work when soil conditions are cool and wet or pest populations are high, but many years this is not the case. As for other treatments – such as inoculants in a corn/soybean rotation – we don’t see much benefit, or they aren’t tried and true – such as nematicides. The key to soil fertility is to make sure the plant doesn’t go deficient without applying too much. Easy to say, but a deficient plant is already losing yield, and too much applied poses the risk of water quality concerns. Holmes: Fungicide seed treatment is always beneficial if soybeans are planted early. One thing that farmers may want to consider is the usefulness of an insecticidal seed treatment on soybeans. The goal of these treatments is to control bean leaf beetles (BLB) and hopefully control very early season soybean aphids. ISU entomologists are predicting 66 to 83 percent BLB winter mortality; meaning that they died from this past winter. This would mean that BLB pressure would be lower and the insecticidal seed treatment wouldn’t be needed. DeJong: Seed treatment for early planted beans is a good idea. Managing N to reduce losses is always smart. We start with a full soil moisture profile, so if your N is now in the nitrate form in the soil, losses could occur with rains that exceed what the soil can hold.

RANDY’S DIESEL REPAIR, INC.

Q. What weather factors coming out of the past winter are anticipated to most influence spring planting? What strategies can be used to work around challenges? A. Licht: I don’t know what weather factors will impact spring planting, or the growing season, for that matter. But, the best advice for growers is to diversify: plant both corn and soybeans, use a variety of plant maturities, and stagger planting dates. And, of course, plant into ideal planting conditions – don’t rush in and plant into cold wet soils. Holmes: Dr. Elwynn Taylor, Extension climatologist, has indicated that we are currently in one of the strongest La Niña conditions he has seen; he compared this year with 1974. Dr. Taylor also indicated that, in a La Niña, the weather tends to be more variable: high temps become higher and low temperatures become lower. Dr. Taylor has indicated that the risk of an extremely cold night – i.e. frost – is greater in a strong La Niña year. We could possibly be looking at a frost due to La Niña in May this year, due to the extremes; it gets somewhat touchy trying to predict high and low temps, so we’re not comfortable guessing too boldly. He has also indicated that La Niña can potentially favor dry conditions longer into the growing season, although we typically get about the same amount of moisture in a La Niña year as in any year. Dr. Taylor did mention that the intensity of the rainfalls can be more extreme, i.e. heavier. Also, the time between these rainfalls can be further apart, so it’s possible that we’ll have dry conditions for a time followed by a heavy or intense rainstorm. DeJong: I thing John (Holmes) summarized Dr. Taylor’s comments well. Maybe the earliest planting possible isn’t as good a choice this year? Q. Last minute recommendations for cost or time saving measures to consider for planting consideration? A. Licht: Consider planting a corn seeding rate that is company recommended. They tend to be pretty close based on the hybrid selected. On the other hand, soybean seeding rates can most likely be cut. A seeding rate between 125,000 and 140,000 seeds per acre should be adequate for optimum yield. Planting less soybean seeds across a farm’s acres could provide significant savings. DeJong: Have good plans in place for a normal spring. But always have a contingency plan for situations where things aren’t going as well. Doing that planning in advance, rather than “by the seat of your pants” while it is going on, might give you a better chance to make good decisions.

PQA Plus advisor training offered May 4 Veterinarians and others in Iowa’s pork industry have the opportunity to become Pork Quality Assurance Plus Advisors under the National Pork Board's PQA Plus program. The certification process requires attendance at a daylong training session and passing an exam at the conclusion of that session. The Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC) at Iowa State University (ISU) will hold one such training May 4. James McKean, IPIC associate director and ISU Extension swine veterinarian, is coordinating the training to be held in Ensminger Room, 1204 Kildee Hall, on the Iowa State campus. He said the session will be taught by Iowa State animal science and veterinary medicine faculty members who are certified PQA Plus trainers. McKean said those who qualify and are interested in the program should download, complete and submit the two-page application form available online at

http://www.ipic.iastate.edu/PQAPapp050411.docx The form also is available by fax by calling Sherry Hoyer at IPIC at 515-294-4496. “If you’re interested in attending, please let us know by submitting an application as soon as possible," he said. "The application deadline is April 25 with the $75 due from approved applicants by the certification session.” To be eligible to submit an application, people must meet the following qualifications: • Be a veterinarian, extension specialist or ag educator (defined for this program as a person who spends full time in adult education or at least half time in production training), and • Have a D.V.M. or B.S. in animal science or an equivalent combination of education and swine production experience as determined by the PQA Plus trainer reviewing the application, and • Have two years of recent documentable swine production experience

PQA Plus was developed by the Pork Industry Animal Care Coalition to be a continuous improvement program. The coalition, made up of pork producers, packers/processors, restaurants and food retailers, dedicated itself to finding a food-industry solution that would give confidence to consumers that U.S. pork is produced in a way that respects animal well-being. PQA Plus merges the food safety and animal well-being concepts of the original PQA program into three steps: individual certification through education, farm site assessment, and the opportunity for process verification that gives customer credibility. For more information on PQA Plus, contact the National Pork Board at 800-456PORK, or go to http://www.pork.org/Certification /11/pqaPlus.aspx.

Iowa Corn expands partnership with Iowa State and Iowa athletic departments to include the “Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series” The Iowa Corn Growers Association and The Iowa Corn Promotion Board (Iowa Corn) announced an expanded partnership with Learfield Sports on behalf of both the Iowa State University and University of Iowa Athletic Departments. The partnership is highlighted by the title sponsorship of the Cy-Hawk Series, the annual competition between the Cyclone and Hawkeye Athletic Departments. The newly titled, “Iowa Corn CyHawk Series” will continue to track the head-tohead match-ups in each sport with each victory earning points toward the overall series championship. The Series will also continue to recognize outstanding academic achievement by the school’s student-athletes. The new, four-year partnership is an expansion of the “Iowa Corn-Fed Game Day” that Iowa Corn has participated in with both schools over the past two years. In addition to game day activities and special prize giveaways, Iowa Corn will continue to promote corn ethanol as one of the more than 4,000 products made from corn, as well as, the importance of corn to the state’s economy through a multi-media platform of radio, television, signage, print and digital media. Past promotional giveaways have included an ethanol powered, flex-fuel Chevy Silverado and a “food and fuel for a year giveaway” totaling $7,500.

“We are excited to expand our involvement with both Iowa State and Iowa by announcing our partnership with the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series” said Craig Floss, CEO for Iowa Corn. “We are involved because whether you are a Cyclone or a Hawkeye, you are from Iowa. Iowa is the top corn producing state, the top ethanol producing state and the corn industry is critical to the economy, jobs and all Iowans. There is not another multi-media, multisport promotion that can top this partnership. It’s the perfect fit for Iowa Corn and our farmers from across the state.” A new “Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series” promotional campaign will be launched this fall including television and radio advertisements featuring Iowa corn growers and head coaches from both Iowa State and Iowa Athletic Departments. Other new features of the partnership will be announced as the annual Iowa State vs. Iowa football game gets closer. This year’s game is set for Saturday, September 10, at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. “We are excited that Iowa Corn has teamed up with Iowa State and Iowa to promote the CycloneHawkeye rivalry” said Jamie Pollard, Iowa State University Director of Athletics. “The Cy-Hawk series has captured the imagination of our fans and truly is a celebration of one of the great rivalries in intercollegiate athletics. We want to thank Iowa Corn for their decision to promote all of the Iowa State-Iowa matchups. It is especially

appropriate because Iowa Corn represents farmers and supports agricultural and scientific initiatives that are so much a part of our state and Iowa State University.” The “Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series” provides an additional platform to showcase Iowa’s corn growers and the importance of corn to the state of Iowa. “We are very pleased to know the more than 6,500 members of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and the decision-makers at the Iowa Corn Promotion Board share in our excitement and appreciation for intercollegiate athletics and this rivalry. What a terrific way to celebrate the history and tradition of our two great universities and our state’s agricultural heritage,” said Gary Barta, Director of Athletics at the University of Iowa. “We are also pleased that Iowa Corn’s experiences with our program during the past few years have been well-received and they have chosen to increase their investment with us through the Cy-Hawk Series. It’s a win for everyone involved including Iowa Corn, the Hawkeyes, Cyclones, and the fans of both teams.” More information on the new partnership, including giveaways and special events can be found by checking www.iowacorn.org.

Lean hog trade has seen an active mixed week; trade moved to a new 4-week low on Tuesday but turned and bounced to a new weekly high on Wednesday. There was just over a $3 range on these two days. June futures are up around a buck on the week after three days of trade. The supply and demand update on Friday was neutral; projected 2011 commercial production was raised by 30 million pounds, but imports were lowered by 10 million pounds. This is a net increase in production of 20 million pounds, but private analysts estimate that exports will rise by 10%, which should work to offset this increase in tonnage. Sow slaughter for the last week in March was reported at 57,406 head on Friday. This was down 6.3% from last year and down 11% from the 5-year average. This could imply growing herd sizes which could limit strength in the deferred

contracts. Producers need to stay focused on margins. Grain and livestock trade appears to be on track to give us an extremely volatile year. Hedgers call with questions.

CATTLE 04/14/11 Live cattle trade has continued the slow grinding trend lower this week. June Live Cattle are $1.20 lower on the week and August Feeder Cattle are down $2.30. Some commodity liquidation appeared to be the biggest item pulling cattle down this week. Most of this sell off was on Tuesday. The cash and cutout trade has remained firm enough to suggest the futures have dropped enough for now. Cash trade should develop late Thursday or Friday this week. Trade is expected to be steady for now. The cutout finished a little lower on Wednesday with choice down $.89 at $153.53 and select was down $.55 at $185.34. The

updated supply and demand table last Friday was friendly. Projected 2011 imports were lowered by 60 million pounds and projected 2011 exports were raised by 50 million pounds. The trade could see follow-through pressure still in the week ahead, but cash needs to break and demand needs to back away in order to confirm a top. Otherwise there still should be a chance for another run at the highs or at least another small rally to sell. On the June chart key support is at the 50-day moving average which sits at $115.50. Hedgers call with questions.

WHEAT 04/14/11

CORN 04/14/11

SOYBEANS 04/14/11

Wheat is lower on the week due to long profit taking and rains expected in the U.S. The weekly net change is 45 lower on the May Chicago contract, KC is down 48, and Minneapolis is 41 lower. Wheat is still holding the uptrend and production worries have us believing wheat should find support and take another run at our recent highs in the week ahead. Spillover direction from the row crops will continue to influence trade, but production concerns and the expectations of greater wheat feeding demand should keep the market supported. Fundamentally, the focus should shift to mainly weather as we progress to May 1. The weekly crop progress and condition report was supportive on Monday. The winter wheat crop was rated only 36% good to excellent, which was down 1% from last week and down from 65% a year ago. The poor to very poor ratings were also 36%. On Friday, the USDA lowered the domestic carryover by 4 million bushels to 835 million. This was over 20 million below expectations; the USDA expected higher wheat feeding. There are some production items that worry me both domestically and in many major world producing countries as well. It is still early of course, but there appears to be reason for serious concern that the market may not be too focused yet. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade printed new contract highs on Monday due to follow-through buying but then we saw long profit taking on Tuesday, futures were briefly limit down. The net change after three days of trade is 8 lower both on the nearby May contract and December new crop. Nearby futures rallied $1.75 from the mid March low to the high printed on Monday; the strength started due to a lower than expected March 1 USDA Stocks number released on March 31. Last Friday the USDA released the April World Agriculture Supply and Demand numbers. There were some discrepancies between Friday’s USDA Supply and Demand report and the USDA Quarterly Stocks and Planted Acreage report on March 31st. The USDA left the carryover unchanged at 675 million bushels which contradicts the 180 million bushel decline that was reported on the stocks report. This suggests that 675 million bushels represents pipeline stocks and may be the lowest number the USDA will publish. It also means that the market will have to find a way to ration nearly 400 million bushels of corn over the next five months. Prices will not be able to decline significantly if the market is going to accomplish this. There may be some new crop corn in the south along with wheat help make up the gap, but in the big picture we need to have a good crop this year. The market is still overbought and corrective action may take us back into the gap area left last ThursdayFriday, but weakness should be viewed as a buying opportunity based on what we see at this juncture. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade is lower on the week due to some long profit taking and set back in crude this week. May beans are down 60 cents on the week after only three days of trade, meal is down $15 and bean oil is down 230. Crude dropped $8 from the high Sunday night down to the low on Tuesday. Goldman Sachs were giving recommendations to exit some long commodity positions which triggered the sell off all around. On the chart the beans are now in a negative formation, so some further long liquidation should not be a surprise in the coming days, but we do not believe this sell off is anything but a downside correction at this juncture. On the monthly report the USDA left the carryover at 140 million bushel last Friday. This was slightly above expectations making the report a non-event. The world numbers were negative with the carryover 2 million tons greater than expected at 60.94 million metric tons. Wet weather in the week ahead should be friendly for corn and negative for beans. We look for active sideways action in the soy complex in the week ahead with the market finding support to take us out of our current short term downtrend. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean growers can bring agronomic information to the field, via smartphone As soybean growers head to the field, the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) has made a wealth of agronomic information available to take along, via smartphone. ISA encourages farmers to check out ISA Mobile (www.iasoybeans.mobi) while doing fieldwork this spring. The association has added a number of production research resources to the website specially adapted for mobile devices. Among the easily accessible publications are the popular Weed Identification Field Guide, featuring full color photos, and the recently published Soybean Diseases book, with identification and

management help regarding 25 soybean diseases. Besides video, the site also features podcasts that farmers can listen to while doing fieldwork; topics covered in the podcasts range from optimum planting dates to managing early season diseases and pests. ISA Director of Contract Research David Wright stated, “This is an ideal resource for busy farmers and crop specialists.” There is no cost to access the soybean agronomic information, derived from checkoff supported research at Iowa State University.

Work begins on sequencing bison genome Unlocking the secrets of bison genetic make-up Call it “The dart shot heard round the bison world.” With a dart fired by Dr. Dave Hunter at the Flying D Ranch in Montana last month, a team of scientists formally began the process of sequencing the entire bison genome. Hunter, along with Dr. Steve Olsen with the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, Dr. James Derr of Texas A&M University, and Texas A&M graduate student Lauren Dobson, selected a mature bull that is part of the Yellowstone Park Quarantine herd being housed at Ted Turner's Flying D Ranch south of Bozeman. Hunter then anesthetized the bull with a dart gun, and the scientists collected a series of blood, hair and tissue samples. "We even named him Templeton, in honor of Joe Templeton, a pioneer in genetics research," Hunter said in describing the event. Texas A&M will first analyze the samples to determine the genetic characterization of the animal, and to verify that the bull provides a good representation of the species. Scientists at The ARS lab at Iowa State University will then begin the complex process of sequencing the genome. Olsen explained, "It's like a jigsaw puzzle, where you want to get to the point where the pieces line up." He noted that the samples collected from Templeton will use used to develop "fibroblast cell lines" to grow cells that will be used as sources of DNA to be compiled into a type of library for sequencing. Those samples can then be preserved for extensive periods of time. Hunter added that new equipment at Iowa State allows scientists to make longer strands of DNA that are easier to analyze. Using Olsen's jigsaw puzzle analogy, Hunter said, "It's easier to complete the puzzle when you have bigger pieces." The initial genome is being sequence De Novo, meaning that it will be analyzed without a reference point to any other species. According to Hunter, that will provide a solid baseline for identifying unique characteristics in bison. The scientists agree that the mapping of the bison genome will provide the industry with a new set of tools. How those tools will be utilized will be determined in the coming years. Hunter noted, "One of the things we may be able to determine is why bison do not respond to some of the vaccines that are regularly used in cattle." The sequencing of the DNA from the first sample may be completed sometime this fall. The process for the initial animal is estimated to run $400,000, but subsequent samples will cost between $50,000 and $60,000. The USDA Agricultural Research Service is largely underwriting the initial sequencing project in collaboration with scientists at Iowa State University, Texas A&M, and the University of Maryland. The National Buffalo Foundation in January also donated $25,000 for the sequencing project.

USDA grants support sustainable bioenergy production Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced on April 12 research grants awarded to spur production of bioenergy and biobased products that will lead to the development of sustainable regional systems and help create jobs. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Director Roger Beachy made the announcement on behalf of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack during the 16th 1890 Biennial Research Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. "USDA and President Obama are committed to producing clean energy right here at home, to not only break our dependence on foreign oil, but also boost rural economies," said Agriculture Secretary Vilsack. "These projects will give us the scientific information needed to support biofuel production and create co-products that will enhance the overall value of a biobased economy. This will propel us to out-educate, out-innovate and outbuild in the field of renewable energy and help America win the future."

The long-term goal for the research projects, which were selected through a highly competitive process, is to implement sustainable regional systems that materially deliver liquid transportation biofuels to help meet the Energy Independence and Security Act goal of 36 billion gallons per year of biofuels by 2022. The funded projects focus on three areas: crop protection for sustainable feedstock production systems, enhanced value co-product development, and carbon sequestration and sustainable bioenergy production. Projects were funded in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Highlights include: Four projects in South Dakota to design an ecologically optimized feedstock production

system, develop activation technologies for producing valuable activated carbon from biochar, to research methods to produce high levels of commercially-available polysaccharide gums from prairie cordgrass and an equipment grant to purchase chromatography system for research on advanced biofuels production and development of lignocellulosic biomass. Two projects for the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Lincoln, Nebraska â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one to link steps in lignin metabolism to susceptibility to fungal pathogens or insects in an effort to improve the value of biomass crops for bioenrgy uses; the other to identify switchgrass varieties with enhanced resistance to piercing-sucking insections to develop sustainable pest management strategies that will significantly contribute to the sustainability and profitability of bioenergy grasses. A full list of awardees can be found online at www.nifa.usda.gov/newsroom/news/2011news/sus _bioenergy_awards.html.

USDA program to provide funding for installation of flex-fuel pumps Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in early April announced that Americans will soon have more choices at the gas pump through a USDA program that will provide funding for installation of flexible fuel pumps. USDA is issuing a rule to clarify that the definition of renewable energy systems in the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) includes flexible fuel pumps, sometimes referred to as "blender pumps." The clarification is intended to provide fuel station owners with incentives to install flexible fuel pumps that will offer Americans more renewable energy options. The Obama administration has set a goal of installing 10,000 flexible fuel pumps nationwide within five years. "Flex-fuel pumps will give Americans a choice to purchase domestically produced renewable transportation fuels," Vilsack said. "USDA's energy programs are helping to build a clean energy economy, while creating green jobs here at home and making our nation more energy secure in the long-term."

Today, most gasoline sold in this country is a mix of 10 percent ethanol. Currently, 8 to 8.5 million flexible fuel vehicles are on U.S. roads, constituting about 3.2 to 3.5 percent of the approximately 250 million vehicles on the road. The flexible fuel vehicles can be fueled with E85 (a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline). Approximately 2,350 fueling stations offer E85 of the more than 167,800 stations nationwide. Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the results of E15 testing on vehicles years 2001 and younger. EPA's findings confirms there are additional vehicles on the road able to take advantage of higher ethanol blends than currently available at local, non-E85, pumps. In addition to flexible fuel pumps being eligible for funding under REAP, Vilsack noted that grants are available for audits of energy improvements and studies to determine the feasibility of renewable energy systems, and agricultural producers in non-rural areas are eligible for REAP

assistance. Small businesses must still be located in rural areas. This clarification makes REAP eligibility requirements consistent with those of other USDA energy programs. A Federal Register notice on the clarifications will be published in the near future. USDA Rural Development will meet with elected Tribal officials in the upcoming months to discuss the impact of the changes on Tribal governments, communities and individuals. USDA will also host a series of informational meetings and workshops to explain the rule changes and to bring stakeholders together to advance retail Flex-Fuel installations. Information on state meetings are available from the Rural Development offices in each state. In Iowa, the Rural Development office is in Room 873 of the Federal Building in Des Moines. The phone number is 515-284-4663 and the website address is www.rurdev.usda.gov/ia/.

Colombia pact to hike U.S. exports by Robert Pore, Grand Island (NE) Independent The Obama administration, during the week of April 4, announced it struck a deal that moves the Colombia free trade agreement. The announcement was hailed by ag groups as beneficial to farmers and ranchers. Bob Stallman, president of American Farm Bureau Federation, said U.S. farmers and ranchers have been losing market share in Colombia to their competitors who have trade agreements with the country. "Colombia has duty-free access to the U.S. market, while our products face excessive tariffs to sell to Colombia's market,' Stallman said. "When implemented, the Colombia FTA would level the playing field for U.S. farmers and ranchers by eliminating these tariffs." According to Stallman, the Colombia, South Korea and Panama agreements will create expanded markets for American farm and ranch products and boost our overall economy. Together, the three agreements represent nearly $3 billion of additional agricultural exports from the United States and could generate as many as 27,000 new U.S. jobs. "Trade will help the United States build stronger bonds with our Latin American neighbors, and it makes sense given our advantage of proximity and history of cooperation," he said.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) said the trade agreement will give U.S. soybean growers the opportunity to regain some of the market share previously lost to competitors in South America. "U.S. soybean farmers are pleased that agreement has been reached on labor and judicial reforms that will pave the way for congressional approval of the long-pending U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, a deal that has been awaiting action for more than four years," said ASA President Alan Kemper, a soybean producer from Lafayette, Indiana. The Colombia FTA will benefit soybean farmers by immediately eliminating tariffs ranging from five to 20 percent on soybeans, soybean meal and soybean flour, and phase out the 24 percent tariffs for crude soybean oil over 10 years and refined soybean oil over five years, correcting the current tariff imbalance in agricultural trade between our countries. The agreement will provide immediate duty-free access for crude soybean oil through a 31,200-ton quota with four percent annual growth. The National Pork Producers Council said the agreement will provide significant new export opportunities for U.S. pork producers. Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes Iowa said when the agreement is approved by the U.S. Congress and fully implemented, it will add

$1.15 to the price producers receive for each hog marketed. The agreement will increase U.S. pork exports to the South American country by $68.9 million and help create 919 U.S. pork industry jobs. National Corn Growers Association President Bart Schott said the agreement provides "an important market for U.S. farmers and we do not want to watch this market slip away to our largest competitors." During marketing year 2007-08, the United States exported 114 million bushels of corn to Colombia, with an estimated value of nearly $627 million. U.S. corn exports declined dramatically during the 2009-10 marketing year, with only 36 million bushels exported, valued at $152 million. The decline in exports reflected a loss of $475 million to the U.S. economy. Bill Donald, National Cattlemen's Beef Association president, said with 96 percent of the global population living outside of the United States, "it is essential to take aggressive measures to enable trade and expand market access for U.S. agriculture in order to stimulate the economy and, more importantly, feed a growing global population." If the agreement is ratified by Congress, Colombia would open its markets to all U.S. beef and beef products and immediately eliminate the 80 percent tariff on prime and choice cuts.

GROWING RESURGENCE IN SQUARE BALES Continued from page 1 Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. "If Kansas is on the short side because of weather, it may impact hay supply here a little," said Dr. Barnhart. "The net movement of hay out of Iowa and Nebraska will be to the areas that are deficient." If any factor will impact the availability of pasture land and hay, it will be the price of grain. "The price for beans and corn affect decisions when producers replant fields," Dr. Barnhart stated. "This may result in a percent or two less of hay fields. If there is any trend at all, it may be slightly fewer acres of hay." Of course, weather is the perennial factor on the supply and future price of hay. Prices of hay in mid-winter spiked, as they normally do, and in the last month have been declining with the approach of spring and the availability of pasture grass, explained Dr.

Barnhart, who tracks hay prices as part of his duties. Niche markets continue to expand for hay producers, especially the demand for high quality hay for dairy and horse producers. Many stables use small square bales of hay. "That seems to be the most convenient for stables to store and handle. But the intermediate square bales are increasing among a number of medium to large stables," said Dr. Barnhart. "These stables can move and store the intermediate square bales fairly easily." He added that prices for the intermediate square bales are typically lower per ton than the small square bales because, from a trucking and marketing standpoint, it is easier to move those bales. The increase in the demand for intermediate square bales opens up marketing opportunities for hay producers.

"Hay producers should certainly explore if producing intermediate bales will work for them; don't overlook that segment of the market," said Dr. Barnhart. "They may be able to develop ongoing relationships with stables. Historically, intermediate square bales have gone to the dairy industry." Of course, the equipment costs to switch the size of bale is not inexpensive, and Dr. Barnhart added that intermediate square bales require a little more management than other sizes and shapes of bales. "You can't store square bales outside without cover, as you can round bales," he explained. "They won't shed water. But storing square bales outside is doable if you can get them covered up with a canvas or tarp."

Farm families to host winner of national contest Two Iowa farm families that manage diversified crop, livestock and turkey farms will help the winner of a national contest experience firsthand the state’s leadership in food, fuel and fiber production. Betsy and Nathan Hill of Ellsworth and Kevin and Julie Van Manen of Kellogg are the hosts for the “It Starts In Iowa” campaign launched last December by the Iowa Soybean Association with the support of other state commodity organizations. The campaign includes the “Be Our Guest, Be A Farmer” contest, in which people 21 years of age and older can register for the chance to win an expense-paid trip to Iowa in August. The contest winner, accompanied by up to three guests, will tour farms and visit with farmers, feed livestock, enjoy dinner served and hosted by a farm family and enjoy an afternoon at the Iowa State Fair. The Hills, along with sons Collin and Conner, grow soybeans and corn and have raised turkeys since 1994. They’re third generation farmers, active leaders in the Iowa Turkey Federation and co-owners of West Liberty Foods, a cooperative supplying meat to Subway,

Costco, Wal-Mart and Denny’s. They also raised the turkeys that received the Thanksgiving pardon by President George W. Bush in 2008. “My grandfather began raising turkeys in the 1950s, and we’ve always strived to farm in an environmentally sustainable manner with animal health and food safety at the top of the list,” Nathan Hill said. “We provide food from the farm all the way to the plate and, just like other farmers, are proud of the way we do things.” In addition to providing a tour of their turkey farm, the Hills will host an evening dinner. Turkey prepared on the grill will be the main entrée, of course. The Van Manen farm dates back to the late 1920s. Kevin and Julie and their children, Jacob and Emily, raise hogs and cattle and grow corn and soybeans. Each member of the family helps out with chores, fieldwork, gardening, mowing and preparing meals. Julie teaches at Sully Christian School and the family has hosted numerous tours and open houses to enhance awareness and understanding of farm life. Jacob and Emily also oversee a successful sweet corn business.

“It’s important that farmers be involved in public relations activities in addition to the day-to-day farm work,” said Julie Van Manan, whose family was a recent recipient of “The Way We Live” Award sponsored by the Iowa State Fair. “We want people to know what we do and how we do it. It’s always preferable that they learn about food and farming from us rather than relying solely on what they read in magazines or see on the television. “After all, we have a great story to tell and no one is more qualified to share it than the Iowa farmer.” Nearly 100 people from 27 states have registered for the “Be Our Guest, Be A Farmer” contest. The registration deadline is Friday, April 29. Ten semi-finalists will be selected from all registrations in early May and will be asked to submit a short biography and three reasons they are most interested in learning more about farming and agriculture. The grand prize winner will be named in early June. To enter the “Be Our Guest, Be A Farmer” contest, log on to www.itstartsiniowa.com.

Company licenses novel biotech method co-developed at Iowa State University and University of Minnesota Has benefits for agriculture, human health An improved molecular tool for precisely modifying DNA in living cells could allow researchers to better introduce genes for disease resistance in crops or develop safer gene therapies to treat human diseases. Technology co-developed by researchers at Iowa State University and the University of Minnesota now makes these kinds of advances possible. The technology, called TAL effector nucleases, removes the guesswork from DNA targeting, allowing researchers to make modifications at virtually any place in a genome. A Paris-based biotechnology company, Cellectis, recently signed an exclusive license agreement with University of Minnesota and Iowa State granting the company worldwide rights to use and market TAL effector nucleases. Scientists at Minnesota and Iowa State have a patent pending on the technology. “TAL effector nucleases are like scissors that find and cut specific DNA sequences,” said Adam Bogdanove, associate professor in plant pathology, and co-inventor. “We can build these scissors to recognize any DNA sequence we want, allowing us to target very specifically.” Bodganove said this specificity is important because most of the genome engineering techniques scientists have relied on to date — to introduce a new gene into a crop, for instance, or mutate a gene to study its function — have been random with respect to where the mutation takes place or the new gene goes in

the genome. TAL effector nucleases, however, remove this randomness. “This new tool for genome engineering could impact agriculture and human health in pretty astounding ways,” he said. “Precise targeting could drastically reduce the time needed to develop a transgenic crop with improved traits, and would remove the potential for unexpected changes in the genome due to random insertion of a transgene.” For human health, Bogdanove said an important application is in cell therapy to treat genetic disorders, where better targeting would allow correction of defects in a patient’s own stem cells. “That would make it unnecessary to use cells from a donor, which might be rejected by the patient’s immune system,” he said. Earlier research by Bogdanove helped pave the way for these advances. TAL effectors are a class of proteins that pathogenic bacteria inject into plant cells, where they attach to the host’s DNA at specific locations and turn on genes within the plant that allow infection to take place. Seeking to understand how these proteins find their targets, Bogdanove stumbled on what turned out to be a clear-cut coding mechanism that matches amino acid pairs in the protein with individual units in the DNA. “It was like the holy grail for genome engineers,” Bogdanove said. “So I contacted an

expert in the area and asked if he wanted to work together.” That expert was Dan Voytas, a former Iowa State professor who’s now director of the Center for Genome Engineering at the University of Minnesota. In 2010, Bogdanove and Voytas published a paper in the journal “Genetics” describing their discovery that TAL effector proteins, which bind DNA, could be hooked to a nuclease, which cleaves it — yielding the precise scissors that are needed for genome editing. A manuscript showing similar results was published at almost the same time by another Iowa State researcher, Bing Yang, and colleagues. Yang is assistant professor of genetics development and cell biology at Iowa State and had also been studying TAL effectors. A number of other labs have since adopted the technology. Bogdanove said that genome engineering with existing tools had been frustrated by the difficulty of consistently designing proteins with the specificities required to target sequences of interest. “With TAL effectors, however, the parts of the protein that specify bases in the DNA are modular, so there’s no guesswork,” Bogdanove said. “We can move them around and create TAL effectors or TAL effector nucleases that target whatever DNA sequence we need to.”

Survey shows land values increase an average of 19.7 percent in Iowa from September 2010 through March 2011 The Iowa Farm and Land Chapter #2 REALTORS® Land Institute’s March 2011 Land Trends and Values Survey showed an increase in values for all nine crop reporting districts, including a 26.0 percent increase in west central Iowa, a 20.3 percent increase in southwest Iowa, and an 18.3 percent increase in northwest Iowa, for the September 2010 through March 2011 period. The west central increase was the highest among the nine crop reporting districts. The REALTORS® Land Institute Chapter is an arm of the National Association of REALTORS® and is organized for REALTORS® who specialize in farm and land sales, management and appraisal. Participants in the survey are specialists in farmland and are asked for their opinions about the current status of the Iowa farmland market. Participants were asked to estimate the average value of farmland as of March 1, 2011. These estimates were for bare, unimproved land with a sale price on a cash basis. Pasture and timberland values were also requested as supplemental information. The results of the surveys showed a statewide average increase of cropland values of 19.7 percent for the September 2010 to March 2011 period. Combining this 19.7 percent increase with the 5.7 percent increase reported in September 2010 indicates a statewide average increase of 25.4 percent for the year from March 1, 2010, to March 1, 2011. The lowest increase in value by crop reporting district was in central Iowa – 15.9 percent. Factors contributing to the increase in farmland values include: strong commodity prices, favorable long term interest rates, and limited amount of land offered for sale. Other factors include: lack of alternative investments, higher livestock prices, and fear of inflation. Concerns that could affect farmland value in the future include: higher input costs, increase in interest rates, and continued uncertainty of the U.S. and world economy. The Iowa Farm & Land REALTORS® farmland value survey has been conducted as of March and September since 1978. This survey plus the RLI Farm and Ranch Multiple Listing Service are activities of REALTORS® specializing in agricultural land brokerage on a daily basis. The survey broke down the value by quality of crop land according to reporting districts. For west central Iowa, these values were: High quality crop land - $6,417 per acre in September 2010 and $8,165 per acre in March 2011

Corn Growth Classic rewritten and available to order ISU Extension's corn production team has completed a new publication. “Corn Growth and Development” (PMR 1009) replaces “How a Corn Plant Develops,” the previous Iowa State publication that served as the standard reference on corn growth and development for more than 40 years. “How a Corn Plant Develops,” written by Iowa State University agronomists of previous eras, established the basics still used today for staging and communicating about crop development. The late John Hanway, a well-known ISU agronomist, wrote the first version in 1966, which was followed by a rewrite in 1982 by Steven Ritchie, Hanway and Garren Benson. “We knew from the very beginning that if we were going to remake this classic publication, we would need to contribute something new and fresh and have some very talented people on our team,” said Lori Abendroth, ISU associate corn agronomist. “Otherwise, there wouldn’t be a point to redo it because it already was very useful and popular.” Authors of “Corn Growth and Development” are Abendroth; Roger Elmore, ISU Extension corn specialist; Matthew Boyer, former ISU

agronomy graduate student; and Stephanie Marlay, ISU agronomy specialist. The 2011 publication provides an in-depth look at corn, from the moment the seed is planted all the way to maturity. It takes much of what is known about crop physiology and combines that with field agronomics to provide students, corn growers and agronomists the current and technical information they want and can use. “To develop the new publication, we conducted multiyear research trials, read piles of research papers, grew hundreds of plants for the photography sessions and spent hours working with editors and designers,” Abendroth said. One of the first steps was to conduct biomass and nutrient accumulation research, followed by four years of various research trials to finetune recommendations and facts in the book, and a year of growing plants for the publication images. Much of the framework that was successful in the previous versions, including numerous color images and graphics, and descriptive text, has been retained in the new book.

“Corn Growth and Development” is more than twice as long as the original, featuring 50 fullcolor pages, and is based on a new generation of corn hybrids and production research. The new publication weaves the newest scientific facts regarding corn growth and development throughout the pages in a way that is concise and easily applicable for people in production agriculture. Key features include: • more than 90 images, including wholeplant images from emergence to maturity detailed descriptions of vegetative and reproductive development • new dry matter and nutrient (N, P and K) accumulations figures • clarification of corn development staging methods • an expansive list of end notes with agronomic research references “Corn Growth and Development” can be ordered from the ISU Extension Online Store at www.extension.iastate.edu/store for $14 per copy. Publication images will soon be available to purchase and download from the same location.

American sheep and lamb production: fast facts As of January 1, 2011, sheep numbers in the United States were 5.53 million head. The number of lambs born during 2010 was 3.6 million head producing an average of 108 lambs born to every 100 ewes. Sheep are produced in all 50 states. However, the highest sheep-producing states are located west of the Mississippi River, where most of the larger sheep ranches reside. The eastern part of the country supports a greater number of smaller farm-flock operations. Following is a state ranking of total number of sheep and lambs as of January 1, 2010: 1. Texas 880,000 2. California 610,000 3. Colorado 370,000 4. Wyoming 365,000 5. Utah 280,000 6. South Dakota 275,000 7. Idaho 235,000 8. Montana 230,000 9. Oregon 215,000 10. Iowa 200,000 11. Arizona 150,000 12.

Through genetics, sheep producers in the United States tend to produce a dual-purpose animal –

one that is valued for both its meat and its wool. Sheep are also raised for producing milk, some of which is processed into cheese.

April 2011 The average weight of a fleece in the United States is 7.3 pounds. However, there is a variance from state-tostate; for example, an average fleece produced in North Carolina and Iowa weighs 5.0 pounds while an average fleece produced in Nevada weighs 9.8 pounds.

The U.S. produced 30.6 million pounds of greasy wool in 2010. This is down from approximately 30.9 million pounds produced in 2009.

All about wool Wool is comfortable to wear year-round because it is an absorbent fiber that helps regulate body temperature. When the air is cool and damp, wool absorbs moisture and keeps a layer of dry, insulating air next to the skin. On the other hand, when it is warm, that same absorption capacity takes up perspiration, allowing the body's natural cooling system to work better. Wool garments are a great investment since wool fibers resist pilling, snagging and breaking, wool garments typically outlast synthetic sweaters. Furthermore, since wool fibers are naturally elastic, wool garments don't wrinkle, bag or sag out of shape. Wool is a safe fabric. It is the only fiber that naturally resists flaming. Unlike most artificial fibers, which often melt and stick to the skin when on fire, wool usually only smolders or chars. Although it will burn under intense fire, it normally self-extinguishes when the flame source is removed. U.S. sheep producers traditionally harvest wool during the spring months. In fact, more than half of Americanproduced wool is shorn and sold during April, May and June. American wool has many uses and is known for its 'loftiness.' In addition to its well-known uses in woven apparel, sweaters, hosiery and upholstery, American wool is also used to make insulation, hand-made rugs, tennis balls, bedding products and clean-up pads for oil and chemical spills. Some of the major wool processors in the United States include Burlington, Pendleton, Woolrich and Chargeurs USA. In the past, U.S. textile mills consumed nearly all of the domestic wool production. However, over the last several years, many of the mills have either closed or moved their production facilities to other countries. Because of this shift, export markets, along with the U.S. military, have become increasingly important to U.S. producers.

Wool added to body armor adds protection Wool, that wonder fabric used in the finest of fashions, has a new use - making body armor even more bullet resistant. Researchers at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) school of fashion and textiles discovered that a blend of wool and Kevlar, the synthetic fiber widely used in body armor, was lighter and cheaper and worked better in some conditions than Kevlar alone. The RMIT textile technologist, Rajiv Padhye, Ph.D., said the standard bullet proof vest was generally made of Kevlar, a dense, strong and expensive fiber. For military use, a heavy ceramic plate provides greater protection over vital areas. A Kevlar vest typically comprises some 36 layers of Kevlar fabric; however, it loses about 20 percent of its effectiveness when wet, requiring an expensive waterproofing process.

"What we did was kept the Kevlar but added a wool yarn into this," he said. The increased friction of the wool in a tight weave means a vest comprising 28-30 layers of fabric provides the same level of bullet resistance as 36 layers of Kevlar. "Because wool fibers expand naturally in water by up to 16 percent, the wool-Kevlar blend actually becomes more effective in wet conditions," he said. "The result is a cheaper bullet-resistant vest that works even better when it's wet." That's a significant matte, considering Kevlar costs about $70 a kilogram compared with about $12 a kilogram for wool. Reprinted with permission from American Sheep Industry Weekly, April 8, 2011.

FAPRI-ISU presents 2011 World Agricultural Outlook Adds greenhouse gas and fertilizer projections New modeling capabilities that give 15-year projections for world greenhouse gas emissions and fertilizer use highlight the 2011 World Agricultural Outlook of the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute at Iowa State University. “This year, FAPRI-ISU developed and implemented a fertilizer model and cellulosic ethanol model and it improved its greenhouse gas emissions accounting model,” said Jacinto Fabiosa, co-director. “This allows us to include world fertilizer use by nutrient, by country, by commodity and by year. Also, projections of greenhouse gas emissions by source, by country and by year are reported.” Results of the greenhouse gas modeling show a 13.6 percent increase in global emissions from agricultural production over the projection period. These increases are mainly due to an increase in crop area and the associated emissions from agricultural soil management. An increase in per capita meat demand, at 1.2 percent per year, leads to an increase in emissions from livestock products (especially enteric fermentation) but at levels that are still lower than emissions from cropland. Expanding crop area and livestock production put pressure on global forests and grasslands. The presence or absence of idle cropland in countries determines the degree of impact on greenhouse gas emissions and levels of deforestation.

New estimates of greenhouse gas emission efficiency, or GHGee, summarize information about countries’ market outcomes, productivity improvements, and greenhouse gas emissions in a single metric. The aggregate value of agricultural production per ton of greenhouse gas emissions is reported for each country, with higher GHGee values suggesting a more efficient emission performance. The results for 2010 show the European Union and United States at the higher end of efficiency, at $579 and $571, respectively, followed by Argentina at $349, India at $329, China at $324 and Brazil at $212. As productivity improves, these countries improve their GHGee by 9 to 21 percent over the projection period. FAPRI-ISU projects that world fertilizer use increases 2.29 percent in 2011/12 relative to 2010/11, which reflects the expansion of the world’s agricultural frontier by 1.60 percent and also the more intensive use of fertilizers at the world level in most commodities. China, India, the United States and the 27 member states of the European Union account for more than two-thirds (65 percent) of the world’s fertilizer consumption in agriculture. U.S. fertilizer use increases by 2.96 percent, dominated by higher use in corn, wheat and sorghum because of expanded area and higher fertilizer application rates. In the macroeconomic overview, despite tepid economic recovery in many developed economies, solid economic performance in developing and emerging economies provides a bright spot for a continuing worldwide economic recovery. In 2010, China posted growth of 10.3 percent and India’s economy grew 8.2 percent.

An economic turnaround, continuing population growth and urbanization and everexpanding biofuel mandates are key drivers in the recovery and strength of the world commodity markets over the outlook’s 15-year projection. The United States is projected to import sugarcane ethanol to meet its advanced ethanol mandates at a level of 3.4 billion gallons by 2025, keeping the prices of world ethanol and sugar strong at $2.50 per gallon and 23.2 cents per pound, respectively. Meat demand increases by 9.4 kilograms. Derived corn demand for biofuel feedstock and for animal feeds keeps the corn price above $191 per metric ton in 2025. Food demand and industrial biodiesel demand support an upward trend in vegetable oil prices. The full outlook, including projections for world food and feed grains, oilseeds, meat, dairy, sugar and biofuels, is available at http://www.fapri.iastate.edu/outlook/2011. According to Fabiosa, budget constraints prevented the production of a joint baseline with the FAPRI group at the University of Missouri and at other institutions, as has been provided in past years. “These projections for the 2011 World Agricultural Outlook were run solely by the FAPRI staff at Iowa State University,” he said. The multi-year FAPRI projections provide a starting point for evaluating and comparing scenarios involving macroeconomic, policy, weather and technology variables in world agricultural trade.
