After cool, rainy April, farmers busy in the fields How will delays affect decisions?

by Emma Struve Planting progress finally saw an up tic this past week as farmers experienced a break in the rain. As of the time that Iowa State University Extension Field Agronomists provided updates on spring fieldwork at the end of last week, percentage of corn planted was still in the single digits. Providing their observations this week are the following field agronomists: • Paul Kassel - Counties served include Dickinson, Emmett, Clay, Palo Alto, Kossuth, Winnebago. Hancock, Buena Vista, and Pocahontas in north central Iowa • Joel DeJong - Counties served include Lyon, Osceola, Sioux, O'Brien, Plymouth, Cherokee, Woodbury, Ida, Monona, and Harrison in northwest Iowa • Mark Licht - Counties served include Sac, Calhoun, Crawford, Carroll, Greene, Boone,

Iowa Legislature passes renewable fuels legislation Bill would boost E15 sales and biodiesel producers The Iowa Legislature on Wednesday, May 4, completed work on comprehensive renewable fuels legislation that boosts E15 sales and biodiesel producers. The Iowa Senate passed the bill by a vote of 48 to 1. On May 4 the Iowa House passed the bill, SF 531, on a vote of 81 to 13. The bill heads to Governor Terry Branstad. Included in the bill was a new three-cent per gallon retailer tax credit for E15 sales. “This provision makes Iowa the leader in E15 public policy,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “With final E15 approval expected from the EPA this summer, Iowa retailers will have an incentive to begin offering E15 on day one. “E15 will be an option for Iowa motorists only if Iowa retailers choose to offer the higher blend. The E15 tax credit is an important tool for retailers looking to add lower cost E15 to their product mix.” Shaw said the bill also created a short-term production incentive for Iowa biodiesel producers. “The biodiesel industry is really going through a shaking out process right now,” he stated. “The states surrounding Iowa have taken aggressive steps to protect their biodiesel producers. This new production incentive will help Iowa biodiesel producers compete with neighboring states. Ramping up Iowa biodiesel production will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs.” The bill contained a number of other provisions, including: • misfueling liability protection for retailers • an enhanced E85 retailer tax credit an extension of the biodiesel retailer tax credit for blends of B5 and higher • $3 million in annual funding for Iowa’s Renewable Fuel Infrastructure Program (which provides grants for installation of blender, E85 and biodiesel dispensers as well as biodiesel terminal infrastructure) • modifications to Iowa’s 25% Iowa renewable fuels standard and ethanol tax credit • codifying the ASTM fuel specification for biodiesel blends between 6 and 20 percent

Beef Quality Assurance helps create a great eating experience every time When families sit down to eat meals together, they expect their food to be safe and wholesome. When choosing beef as a main dish, there’s no doubt their expectations will be met. In fact, caring and responsible beef producers provide these expectations through programs like the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program. According to Matt Deppe, Director of Industry Relations at the Iowa Beef Industry Council, the BQA program was created more than 20 years ago by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association with the purpose of bringing together beef producers with one strong goal: to produce safe, wholesome beef that provides a great eating experience every time. In Iowa, the BQA program is sponsored by the Iowa Beef Industry Council (IBIC) and is funded through the $1-per-head beef checkoff. Nearly 6,400 Iowa beef producers have been BQA certified since 1999. “The BQA program’s mission is to maximize consumer confidence in beef while exceeding their eating expectations,” said Deppe, who directs Iowa’s program. According to the IBIC, the BQA program is a two-year certification process in which anyone directly responsible for beef production and the handling or administration of pesticides, feed additives, pharmaceuticals or vaccines can be certified. Deppe said that the BQA system works to prevent defects in the end product by focusing on good production practices at every production segment. “Beef Quality Assurance emphasizes the day-to-day management practices that

influence the production of safe, wholesome beef. The program also instructs beef producers on the proper use of animal health products, environmental management, record keeping and sampling procedures for feed and feed ingredients. In today’s environment, all of these elements are extremely important to consumers,” stated Deppe. Deppe added that the program is continually improved and enhanced. A new component of the BQA program is an increased emphasis on cattle care and handling and how low-stress management techniques have a positive impact on cattle health and performance. Deppe said he is often asked why it is important for producers to become certified. In answer to that, he said that state and national industry organizations believe it’s important for beef producers to maintain and build consumer confidence in purchased beef. He also pointed out that producers will benefit from the required record-keeping. These records can be passed on with the cattle from owner to buyer, resulting in more informed business decisions. To become BQA certified, contact Deppe at the Iowa Beef Industry Council (515-2962305), or contact a local veterinarian.

May is Beef Month in Iowa by Dan Cook, New Providence, chair of the Iowa Beef Industry Council Each spring as Iowans fire up their grills, they rekindle their love affair with beef. Now is a great time to celebrate May Beef Month, whether it’s with a thick juicy T-bone or the allAmerican hamburger. Your celebration honors hard-working cattle farmers and their families. They are that first step in producing safe, nutritious beef and they are at work in all 99 Iowa counties. (Yes, beef is a local food.) Again, it is at the farm level that the economic benefits from beef production start. In Iowa, we have 30,000 farm families that raise cattle, but their work needs to be supplemented by many who make sure that the beef produced here makes it to your dinner plate. That includes feed manufacturers and equipment dealers, truck drivers and food marketers. Raising cattle also supports many other Iowa farmers, too. Cattle eat feed made

from millions of bushels of corn, soybeans and the co-products of these grains. Iowa has a unique beef industry with the resources needed to raise high quality cattle. We have abundant feedstuffs, rolling hills best kept in pasture and the experienced cow-calf farmers and cattle feeders to produce some of the highest quality beef in the country. Iowa’s cattle farmers are passionate about the environment. We depend on the land and its resources for our livelihood so good management of the environment and our livestock is mandatory. We’re committed to leaving the environment in better shape for the next generation – our families. Iowa cattle families have long been honored for their environmental stewardship which not only conserves, but improves natural resources. Recently honored as the 2011 National Environmental Stewardship Award winners, the Bill and Nancy Couser family of Nevada, share their passion for “doing things right.”

Couser Cattle Company is a third generation feedlot operation located in the fertile lands of Story County in central Iowa. The Cousers strive to minimize impact on the environment and maximize resources. They raise the seed corn that produces the grain for ethanol and use the distillers grains from the ethanol to feed their cattle. They use the manure from the cattle to fertilize the next crop of seed corn so that this natural cycle can continue. Cousers join two other Iowa cattle families in receiving this national award. The Dave Petty family, operators of the Iowa River Ranch, Eldora and the Utesch family, Triple U Ranch, Correctionville, received the award in the recent past. Iowa cattle producers are proud of their role in feeding consumers in Iowa, the U.S. and the world. You can let your local cattle farmers know they are appreciated by enjoying a juicy hamburger or thick steak on the grill tonight.

Expert tips for creating the perfect beef lovers’ experience Beef can be prepared many ways, as many was as there are reasons to love beef, according to the Iowa Beef Industry Council. To celebrate May Beef Month, the council is providing some sizzling advice from Chef Dave Zino, with the Beef Culinary Center of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “It just might be the inspiration you need to kick off your summer grilling season this month," said Elaine Utesch, cattle farmer from Correctionville and vice-chair of the Iowa Beef Industry Council. “The key to that unforgettable beef meal is to match your steak or roast to the proper cooking method to ensure tender results,” added Utesch. “The filet mignon, T-Bone and sirloin taste best when cooked using dry heat, which is characterized by quick cooking at higher temperatures. That’s why these cuts work so well when grilled,” Zino said. “Broiling or cooking in a skillet are also ways to cook with dry heat. For less tender cuts, such as the chuck roast or bottom round roast, moist heat cooking techniques, such as braising and stewing, are best.”

Bedrock Concrete Products, LLC

Zino had additional tips for lovingly creating the beef dishes: Hit the Right Temperature - insert an instant-read thermometer horizontally into the side of a steak to check doneness. Aim for a reading between 145°F (medium rare) to160°F (medium), which are the ideal temperatures for tender, juicy steaks. Bring out the Best - pair a marinade or rub with the appropriate cut to bring out the best in beef. For naturally tender steaks such as flat iron, ribeye, top sirloin, top loin, tenderloin, porterhouse and T-bone, apply a simple rub made with fresh herbs, garlic and spices for at least 15 minutes, but no more than two hours. For less-tender steaks such as the top round, flank or skirt, a marinade incorporating an acidic ingredient such as vinegar, wine or citrus juice, will tenderize and add flavor. For best results, marinate these cuts at least six hours, but no more than 24 hours. Create Chemistry - beef develops its desirable flavor and aroma during the cooking process, especially when browned. Browning causes beef ’s proteins and carbohydrates to caramelize, resulting in a burst of intense

flavor that’s sure to seduce beef lovers. Use a medium-heat setting and be sure not to crowd the pan for optimum browning and flavor development. Unleash the Power - umami, which comes from the Japanese word for “delicious,” is the fifth taste described as meaty or savory. To amp up the flavor intensity of already-delicious beef, marry it with other natural sources of umami, like mushrooms, tomatoes or aged cheese, for a synergistic flavor explosion. Practice Safe Serving - keep raw meat separate from other foods both in the refrigerator and during preparation. Wash hands, all utensils and surfaces in hot, soapy water after contact with raw meat. Never place cooked meat on platters that held raw meat; use clean serving platters and utensils. Serve cooked food promptly and refrigerate immediately after serving (within two hours after cooking).

Food, fun, and family Thank goodness for Facebook. Now, I know a lot of you are considering whether or not you should stop reading right there, but I assure you that this entire column will not be about the virtues of the social networking site. I will say, however, that sometimes I’m at a loss as to what I should say in this column. On those days, I turn to Facebook as a diary of what happened in my life over the past month to jostle my memory. Usually April is filled with the field preparations and the beginning of the planting season. With the sporadic rain (and sometimes sleet or snow) keeping the fields moist, it’s been more of a waiting game this year. My husband finally got into the field in the last week, far behind when he usually does. Remarkably, he’s not as grumpy as I would expect him to be. April was a great month filled with lots of activities, including the confirmation of my oldest son. A couple weeks after the event, the trim was

finished in the game room. All I am waiting on now is a little bit of electrical work like plug-ins and extra lights that weren’t done already. But my husband will get it done after the spring field work is finished. With all the rain, our lawn is really green and the mowing season is starting. Earlier this week, my oldest son wanted to mow the lawn. Not knowing if the mower was ready to go for the season, I started to suggest another outdoor activity for him. He interrupted, saying that he really wanted to mow because he could make paths in the lawn, “It’s like planting but without the stress.� Dang. I thought I was raising at least one of the boys to NOT be a farmer. Next January he turns 14, so I can see that in a few years, he’ll be right out there with his dad helping plant in the spring provided all the homework is done first! In going through old photos for the confirmation video, I smiled at some of the past planting season photos, namely

one of the little boys on top of the planter putting in seeds a couple years ago. Maybe kids learn to love farming through osmosis, living on the farms and having to help with the various tasks assigned to them. I dropped off the youngest son with dad the next day so he could “help� plant for awhile. He loves it when he can help, and also loves helping take care of the animals on the farm. He calls himself “father nature� sometimes, so I guess he’s headed down the farmer path. Maybe I can steer him towards every farmer’s dream career for his son or daughter: veterinarian! I read an article in a magazine last week about a family who purchased 10 or 20 acres in Texas because they wanted to teach their children how to “live off the land� as they grow up. One of their plans was to create a wildlife and nature space with blinds so people can come and take pictures. The dad said the kids could be responsible for

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch

marketing the photography business as they grew older. They also had planned to create a vineyard that the kids could take care of as it matures. Hmmmm. That’s not Iowa farming. If you really want the kids to learn about marketing, teach them how to figure out when to sell the corn crop so they can pay for all the inputs, purchase a new piece of equipment AND take their family on

a vacation. That’s a perfect hat trick in farming. Teach them how to figure out how much to feed their cattle so they don’t get too big for the county fair, but are still ready for sale on that week in July. That requires a lot of math and foresight. Last Friday, I really wanted steak and a baked potato. Sure, mother nature was blowing her mighty winds, but for some reason, I thought I could run the grill. I was wrong. Plan B was to throw the steak in the oven on broil, and have my son keep an eye on it so it wouldn’t burn. It turned out pretty tasty, but it would have been better on the grill. The kids even tried some of the “grilled� mushrooms and onions that I made to go with the steak. I’ll have many opportunities to grill this summer, as well as eat outside on our deck. I will have to remember to document it on Facebook, so I’ll remember it for next month.

Beef can be prepared many ways, as many was as there are reasons to love beef, according to the Iowa Beef Industry Council. To celebrate May Beef Month, the council is providing some sizzling advice from Chef Dave Zino, with the Beef Culinary Center of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “It just might be the inspiration you need to kick off your summer grilling season this month," said Elaine Utesch, cattle farmer from Correctionville and vice-chair of the Iowa Beef Industry Council. “The key to that unforgettable beef meal is to match your steak or roast to the proper cooking method to ensure tender results,” added Utesch. “The filet mignon, T-Bone and sirloin taste best when cooked using dry heat, which is characterized by quick cooking at higher temperatures. That’s why these cuts work so well when grilled,” Zino said. “Broiling or cooking in a skillet are also ways to cook with dry heat. For less tender cuts, such as the chuck roast or bottom round roast, moist heat cooking techniques, such as braising and stewing, are best.” Zino had additional tips for lovingly creating the beef dishes: Hit the Right Temperature - insert an instantread thermometer horizontally into the side of a steak to check doneness. Aim for a reading between 145°F (medium rare) to160°F (medium), which are the ideal temperatures for tender, juicy steaks. Bring out the Best - pair a marinade or rub with the appropriate cut to bring out the best in beef. For naturally tender steaks such as flat iron, ribeye, top sirloin, top loin, tenderloin, porterhouse and T-bone, apply a simple rub made with fresh herbs, garlic and spices for at least 15 minutes, but no more than two hours. For lesstender steaks such as the top round, flank or skirt, a marinade incorporating an acidic ingredient such as vinegar, wine or citrus juice, will tenderize and add flavor. For best results, marinate these cuts at least six hours, but no more than 24 hours. Create Chemistry - beef develops its desirable flavor and aroma during the cooking process, especially when browned. Browning causes beef ’s proteins and carbohydrates to caramelize, resulting in a burst of intense flavor that’s sure to seduce beef lovers. Use a medium-heat setting and be sure not to crowd the pan for optimum browning and flavor development. Unleash the Power - umami, which comes from the Japanese word for “delicious,” is the fifth taste described as meaty or savory. To amp up the flavor intensity of already-delicious beef, marry it with other natural sources of umami, like mushrooms, tomatoes or aged cheese, for a synergistic flavor explosion. Practice Safe Serving - keep raw meat separate from other foods both in the refrigerator and during preparation. Wash hands, all utensils and surfaces in hot, soapy water after contact with raw meat. Never place cooked meat on platters that held raw meat; use clean serving platters and utensils. Serve cooked food promptly and refrigerate immediately after serving (within two hours after cooking).

The Dugout Burger a hit for Ute restaurant by Gordon Wolf

All burgers are seasoned with Cookie’s Barbecue flavor enhancer and Worcestershire sauce. The patties are made at The Dugout using 80 percent lean ground beef. The Dugout also offers Chislick - 10 ounces of tenderized ribeye strips deep fried and seasoned, served with horseradish or barbecue sauce. In addition, customers can choose The Dugout’s ribeye steak, which are carved on site, prime rib or the broasted chicken. A burger that will be added to the menu is the bacon cheeseburger, one of Jerry’s ideas. The difference is the bacon is broken up and mixed in with the ground beef so the customer gets bacon with every bite. The Dugout’s MVP Challenge has also received a lot of attention, said Leanne.

Ten secrets for sensational summer grilling 1.

Keep beef refrigerated. Grilling times are based on beef being taken directly from the refrigerator to the grill – not at room temperature. Shape burgers in advance, cover and refrigerate until the grill is ready. Trim, if necessary. Remove visible fat from meat and poultry before grilling to help prevent flare-ups and excess smoke formation. Marinating mantra. Always marinate in the refrigerator. Tender beef cuts can be marinated for 15 minutes to 2 hours for flavor. Less tender beef cuts should be marinated at least 6 hours –but no more than 24 hours– in a mixture containing an acidic ingredient or a natural tenderizing enzyme. Pat beef dry after removing from marinade to promote even browning and prevent steaming. Do not save marinade for reuse. If a marinade has been in contact with uncooked beef, it must be brought to a full rolling boil before it can be eaten as a sauce. Grilling temperature matters. Grilling over medium heat ensures even cooking and flavorful, juicy meat. If beef is grilled over

too high heat, the exterior can become overcooked or charred before the interior reaches the desired doneness. Charring meat, poultry or fish is not recommended. Watch the charcoal. Never grill while the coals are still flaming. Wait until the coals are covered with gray ash (approximately 30 minutes), spread in single layer. To check cooking temperature, cautiously hold the palm of your hand above the coals at cooking height. Count the number of seconds you can hold your hand in that position before the heat forces you to pull it away; approximately 4 seconds for medium heat. Know your gas grill. Since gas grill brands vary greatly, consult the owner’s manual for information about preparing the grill for medium heat. Turn properly. Use long-handled tongs for turning steaks; spatulas for burgers. A fork will pierce the beef causing loss of flavorful juices. And don’t be tempted to press down on burgers – it only releases the juices and creates flare-ups.

5.

6. 7.

8.

Use a thermometer. The best way to determine doneness of burgers and steaks is to use an instant-read meat thermometer, inserted horizontally from the side to penetrate the center of the meat. Allow 10 to 15 seconds for the thermometer to register the internal temperature. Internal temperature matters. Cook burgers to at least 160?F. The color of cooked ground beef is not a reliable indicator of doneness. Cook steaks to at least 145?F (medium rare doneness). The color will be very pink in the center and slightly brown toward the exterior. Practice food safety. Keep raw meat separate from other foods both in the refrigerator and during preparation. Wash hands, all utensils and surfaces in hot soapy water after contact with raw meat. Never place cooked meat on platters that held raw meat. Use clean serving platters and utensils. Serve cooked food promptly and refrigerate immediately after serving (within two hours after cooking).

Soybean experts provide tips to maximizing yield when planting is delayed Soggy and cool conditions have kept farmers out of the field, and the optimal planting dates for soybeans, April 25 in southern Iowa and May 1 for the northern half of the state, have come and gone. The average rainfall in the state of Iowa for April 2011 was 5 inches, or about 1.36 inches above normal. In April 2008, the second wettest April recorded, the precipitation totaled 5.88 inches, or 2.55 inches above normal. In addition to rain concerns, Iowa State University (ISU) Extension Climatologist Elwynn Taylor said the strong shifts between cool and warm weather will continue through the spring and summer since La Niña is the strongest it has been in 50 years. “The National Weather Service forecasts the rest of spring to be on the cool side of average,” Taylor stated. “We expect equal shifts from one extreme to the next every couple of weeks, which is not favorable for crops. Yields are expected to be below normal due to La Niña conditions.” Dr. David Wright, Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) director of contract research and strategic initiatives, said it’s unlikely farmers will get soybeans planted early enough to maximize the growing season. Farmers can expect to lose 0.3 to 0.7 bushels per acre per day due to delayed planting. Yield loss may be more in fields planted after May 10. However, Wright warns against rushing the process. “Even though planting has been delayed, don’t rush and mud it in if our current rainfall

pattern continues,” Wright stated. “The extra couple of days waited will have benefits later on in the growing season. The biggest risk in mudding-in is sidewall compaction, which limits soybean growth and root development.” Wright explained early root development is critical to provide healthy roots and rapid vegetative growth. “Soybeans need a healthy, vigorous root system to take up water and nutrients and for later in the season when rainfall may be less abundant. It’s the number of roots that matters during the critical seed-fill period because water and nutrients are taken up into the root just behind the root tip. More root tips equals greater stress tolerance and yield potential.” Mark Licht, field agronomist for ISU, agreed with Wright that a major factor is considering soil conditions at the time of planting. “Farmers must be patient by not rushing in to plant in wet soil conditions,” Licht said. “Waiting for suitable soil moisture and warmer temperatures will result in faster, more uniform emergence. Warmer, dryer soils also reduce the risk of soil-borne pathogens that can infect the plant, such as Pythium.” While many farmers and climatologists are comparing this spring to the spring of 2008, Wright said more farmers are using seedapplied fungicides this time, which may help reduce root infection by soil-borne pathogens. However, seed applied fungicides will not reduce the negative impact of soil compaction in the seed zone.

“2011 will be a good test of performance of fungicide seed treatments,” Wright stated. Licht agreed, “This year a fungicidal seed treatment may be one of the more profitable input costs due to the risk of soil-borne pathogens.” “Good weed management will continue to be critical, especially in later planted fields,” Wright said. “Farmers should get a good preemergent herbicide down if they can.” However, if farmers are unable to put down a pre-emergent herbicide and relying on postemergent herbicide, Wright stated it’s important to apply in a timely fashion to reduce weed competition. “Weeds are constant competitors for the water and nutrients soybeans need for fast growth and development,” he commented. “Iowa is predicted to plant 9.4 million acres in 2011, with the capacity to plant a million acres a day. Farmers should consider first the best soil conditions to get their crop off to a good start. Patience will pay off.”

AFTER COOL, RAINY APRIL, FARMERS BUSY IN THE FIELDS Continued from page 1 corn planted, wait for this early planted corn to emerge, assess emergence rates, then determine if the stand population and quality has adequate yield potential remaining or if replanting is the better option. Holmes: Farmers were able to level stalks, apply anhydrous ammonia, and haul livestock manure in early April. A few brave souls planted some corn the second week of April. Very little has been done in the last two weeks of April. Saeugling: As of the writing of this article Thursday (April 28) afternoon very little corn has been planted in southwest Iowa. Most fertilizer application has been made. The most important thing to get done now are corn planting and timely herbicide applications. We have a long way to go to get corn planted. The optimum corn planting window n southwest Iowa is from April 11 to May 13 so we have some time, but the first weeks of May are critical to get corn planted.

Q

How are weather related delays in corn planting going to affect decision making and prioritizing for the next few weeks of spring field work? Kassel: They are talking about better weather next week. It will be a real rush when it happens - especially for those who apply spring NH3 or have the fertilizer dealer only apply 28% UAN or urea. There is no need to change hybrid maturity yet and then only really late hybrids if those are not planted by mid-May. Some producers might be tempted to skip the pre-emergence herbicide, but the benefits are so large. DeJong: We will likely see some producers go to their "late spring" plan - some will go to a total post herbicide program to save time, apply fertilizer as soon as possible, and get to planting as quickly as they can when field conditions are fit. A few might reduce tillage passes, or maybe no-till something they hadn't planned to before the year started. I think maybe more soybeans will be no-tilled if we get really late. Licht: The cool, wet weather has really only slowed planting. Most of the dry fertilizer and anhydrous ammonia was applied prior to the rain. I think what is really going to change in priority is the use of pre-planting herbicides. When the fields are fit to plant that will take first priority, with the mentality that "I'll come back in with a pre-mergence or post- herbicide to clean things up." This is probably not the best decision, but can work if weather cooperates. The key point is that planting is the number one priority and everything else that

needs to be done will take second or third billing. Holmes: Obviously planting will be the primary focus for farmers. Fertilizer application will be done by suppliers so that won't change; however, herbicide application may move from pre-planting incorporation to preemergence or none at all. Beans will be planted following corn in most instances. Saeugling: Planting delays will impact the first day we are able to get back in the field. I see farmers pushing the planting possibly a day sooner than even they feel comfortable planting due to the later than normal starting date. With cold wet weather farmers may want to go field by field rather than get too far ahead planting and worry about spraying later. It may be wise to plant then pray a field if at all possible. This may not work for all farmers. Weed control is going to be a big issue if we continue to let weeds grow prior to spraying.

Q

Are there any updates about long-term weather predictions? Thoughts on weather related economic impacts? Kassel: Elwynn Taylor says that La Nina is very strong and that means cooler temperatures will prevail into July. This is not a recipe for record corn yields. DeJong: I'm not a weather forecaster, sorry. But, La Nina is still very firmly in place at this time, which might lead to more erratic weather, if it matches history. The last time it was this strong we had a late frost in the spring and an early one in the fall. We match that and it will likely reduce yields. In conjunction with tight supplies, marketing could be interesting. But, we still have that chance of getting close to good timing for planting and getting good summer weather. Long term forecasters are often inaccurate, so I guess we'll have to do our best and see what happens. Licht: As I've heard, the weather forecasts and probabilities for the next month and growing season, I'm not too certain how things are going to go. Elwynn Taylor has been indicating that La Nina is likely to remain through the growing season and that means these temperature swings we've seen to date in 2011 will continue. How that affects the growing depends on when we have above normal temperature. Above normal temperatures at pollination and during corn grain fill or soybean grain fill could have disastrous results by shortening the grain fill period. We'll just have to wait and see what temperatures do, knowing that moisture can lessen the severity of temperature or the lack thereof can make for

a more serious situation. It will be a waiting game. Holmes: During a field agronomist teleconference, Dr. Elwynn Taylor told the group that we are currently in a La Nina weather condition. This is opposed to an El Nino weather condition, which is favorable to crop production. Weather in a La Nina tends to be more extreme and variable. Highs will be higher; lows will be lower. We should expect to get the same amount of precipitation but it will be more variable. We may see a storm with quite a bit of rain followed by a dry period. Saeugling: Mother nature will give us what she can. Given that cattle is a topic of interest this month, how are pasture and hay fields looking in your area? Forage management recommendations? Kassel: Pasture and hay fields have been very slow in development. However, I have not heard or have not seen any large amounts of winter injury or winter kill in alfalfa. So, pastures should be good to go when it warms up since we definitely have the moisture. DeJong: Forages are really slow to get going because we have been so cool. Pasture acres get harder to find all the time - more seem to be getting turned into crop ground. So getting good productivity for the existing acres is needed. Good weed control starts in the spring, fertilizing to add tonnage per acre helps, and don't overgraze, which slows regrowth and reduces carrying rate per acre. These are all important management practices in limited acre operations. Licht: Hay and pasture fields look pretty good in my area. There was not much winter kill or injury but there were a number of patters that got torn out for corn production due to the price of corn. This cool wet weather has slowed growth dramatically from past years. Because of that, the first hay cutting may be a little late. Holmes: Hay and pasture are both looking pretty good. The cold weather has slowed alfalfa growth. Saeugling: Pastures look very good right now. I encourage farmers to fertilize and spray pastures for maximum productivity. Calving has gone well this season.

Lean hog trade has been lower this week due to downward chart momentum and long liquidation. The weekly net change is $4.67 lower on the May contract and June is down $3.07. Cash trade is called steady to $.50 lower for the remainder of the week following the lower pork carcass trade on Wednesday. The spread between the cutout and cash prices is just over $3 which suggests dwindling profit margins for packers. Profit margins at the producer level have also deteriorated; most analysts estimate that hog producers are losing $5 to $10/head on weaned pigs. This will promote herd liquidation if it persists over a prolonged period of time. On the chart, June futures did trade down within 10 cents of the $91.75 200-day moving average. This satisfies most downside targets. Look for this area to hold as support for now. Hedgers call with questions.

CATTLE 05/05/11 Live cattle trade was lower this past week due to continued long liquidation. The weekly net change is $1.40 lower on the June contract and August is down $1.57. Cash trade has likely concluded for the week with light trade reported on Wednesday at $114-$115 live and $182 dressed. The cutout finished lower on Wednesday with choice down $1.22 at $180.94 and select was down $1.31 at $175.02. Despite the recent weakness in the cash and cutout values, hide and offal values have continued to

maintain supportive levels above $13.50. This should help offset deteriorating profit margins. The high gas prices and cheaper competing meats may make a big recovery difficult in the cattle market. Hedgers call with questions.

CORN 05/05/11

SOYBEANS 05/05/11

Wheat trade has been lower this week due to chart selling and fund liquidation. The weekly net changes on the July contracts are 19 lower in Chicago, KC is 13 lower, and Minneapolis is 22 lower. Improved weather outlooks across the Southwestern wheat belt stopped the upward momentum early this week, but the prolonged wet weather is still expected to limit harvested acres and yield production. The Canadian Wheat Board announced on Monday afternoon that spring wheat planting is 2% complete versus the 10% average. Domestically, the weekly report listed spring wheat plantings at only 10% complete versus 57% last year and the 43% 5-year average. The winter wheat ratings were down again with good to excellent ratings down 1% to 34% and poor to very poor ratings up 1% to 41%. The US Crop Quality Wheat Tour also kicked off in parts of north central Kansas this week. On Tuesday, the tour reported that wheat yields there were better than last year, but the average compiled on Wednesday was 40 bushels per acre which was down from 40.7 last year. Yield estimates are expected to decline sharply as the tour progresses farther west and south. The weekly export sales were above expectations with 273,900 tons of old crop and 275,700 tons of new crop sales reported. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade has been mixed in active trade this week. The weekly net change is 5 lower on the July contract and December is up 4. Outside markets have been active this week following the death of Osama Bin Laden and the potential global political ramifications that this could produce. The dollar has continued to slip which has limited selling interest across all commodities, but the sharp decline in crude oil indicates continued fund liquidation. As of Wednesday, crude is over $4 lower for the week. Talk of ethanol facilities shutting down has been noted for the recent old crop weakness. Some of the larger ethanol producers also argue that the USDA has overstated the corn use for ethanol by as much as 150 to 175 million bushels. The difference is derived from discrepancies regarding the efficacy of ethanol production; the USDA claims that 1 bushel of corn will produce 2.75 gallons of ethanol while large producers argue it is closer to 2.85 gallons per bushel. This could be a negative demand item if it is realized on next week's Supply and Demand report. On Wednesday China confirmed a 1 million ton sale that was first announced in March. It is being loaded for delivery this week and should show up on next week’s export inspection report. This may be priced-in, but it should help limit downside in the old crop contracts. Weather items will continue to direct trade near-term; the crop progress report on Monday afternoon listed corn plantings at only 13% versus the 40% 5-year average and 66% last year. The wet weather across the eastern Corn Belt will continue to promote ideas of planting delays and the loss of 130 thousand acres of farm ground due to a compromised levee in southern Illinois will also keep the fundamental focus on tightening supplies. The weekly export sales were reported at 284,200 tons which was below expectations. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has been lower this week due to outside market pressure and fund liquidation. The weekly net change is 41 lower on July beans. Meal is down $9.80 and oil is down 143 points. Weather items will continue to dictate trade over the short-term with wet corn planting conditions increasing the probability that soybean acreage will be bigger than the March Planting Intensions report number. Bean progress was not reported on Monday afternoon's report, but Mississippi and Arkansas are estimated to be 30 and 14% complete respectively. Celeres estimated early this week that Brazilian farmers have harvested 95% of the soy crop. They also estimate that producers have forward sold 62% of their crop this year versus last year's pace of 49%. This reinforces ideas of friendly global demand items, but Oil World raised their expected 2011 Brazilian soybean production on Wednesday to 72.5 million tons which was up .5 million tons from their previous estimate. The growing supplies in South America have worked to offset some of the friendly demand items. Domestically, the weekly export sales came in at 21,000 tons of old crop and new crop came in at 200 tons. Combined, this was well below expectations; no cancelations were reported, but South American beans will likely continue to dominate Chinese import interest. Meal sales were reported at 78,700 tons of old crop and 700 tons of new crop. Oil sales came in at 3,900 tons which was below expectations. Hedgers call with questions.

Beef exports delivering solid returns for producers U.S. beef exports set a new value record in 2010, topping $4 billion for the first time in history. It was also the first time the nation’s beef export value exceeded the pre-BSE level of 2003, marking a long climb back from that major setback But how does this export success story translate to the bottom line of cattle producers? What kind of return are they getting from the beef checkoff dollars invested in foreign marketing? One way to gauge the impact is to calculate the export value per head of fed slaughter, which averaged $153 last year and climbed as high as $183 in December. As the attached chart indicates, per-head export value showed very impressive gains over 2009 – especially in the final months of the year. Though the U.S. beef industry exports only about 12 percent of its total production, much of the volume consists of underutilized muscle cuts and variety meat that command a premium in the foreign markets. For example, about 90 percent of the short ribs, short plate and livers from U.S. fed slaughter are exported, delivering a far better return than they could generate domestically. Variety meat and underutilized cuts can also serve as entry-level products for certain destinations that can eventually be developed into higher-value markets. Did you know the United

States exported more than $260 million worth of beef to the Middle East last year? That was a 77 percent increase over 2009 and nearly 10 times the value the U.S. beef industry exported there just four years ago. One of the reasons for this value growth is that the U.S. beef industry has expanded the exports to the Middle East beyond livers and other variety meat, to include nearly $160 million in muscle cuts. Russia offers a similar success story, as 2010 U.S. beef exports to Russia doubled in volume but quadrupled in value in a single year. How did this happen? In 2009, more than 60 percent of the U.S. export value to Russia was variety meat – mostly livers. But even though variety meat exports to Russia nearly doubled in value last year, muscle exports exploded by nearly 600 percent – reaching $106 million for the year. So while Russia is still an outstanding market for beef variety meat, it now makes up only 30 percent of the U.S. export value to Russia. About two-thirds of the value of U.S. beef exports is derived from the top four mainstay markets – Mexico, Canada, Japan and South Korea. But compare that with 2003 – when these

markets accounted for more than 90 percent of the export value – and you can see that our overseas presence is now much broader and more diverse. This is absolutely essential if U.S. beef exports are going to continue to grow and contribute to the viability of our nation’s cattle industry.

Iowa State invites student teams to register for crop Scouting competition The Iowa State University Corn and Soybean Initiative seeks team applicants and adult leaders for a new program designed to give high school students a taste of what it takes to be a modern farmer. The 2011 Iowa Crop Scouting Competition, taking place in late July and early August, couples real-world scouting experience based on integrated pest management principles with community service. The program is an effort to build awareness of Iowa agriculture through hands-on learning and teamwork. Daren Mueller, coordinator of the initiative and ISU’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, said that while agriculture employs one in every six Iowans, many of Iowa’s youth are unaware of the vital role it plays in the state’s economy or the challenges facing Iowa farmers each season. “This is the first scouting competition for high school students,” Mueller said. “Through it, we hope to encourage both ag and non-ag students to develop a greater appreciation for agriculture’s contribution to our state and nation, while

learning about some of the challenges Iowa’s corn and soybean growers face.” The competition consists of four regional teamscouting contests at ISU research farms; an individual test assessing crop and pest knowledge; a crop scouting report of each team’s findings; and a team community service project. The two topscoring teams will advance to compete in a state final. All assessments are based on IPM curriculum materials supplied by Iowa State. Teams that register by May 15 pay $5 per team. After that, the fee is $10 per team. The final deadline to register is July 1, to allow for time to receive and study the curriculum materials. Teams should include three to four members. “While we expect a lot of teams to consist of 4-H and FFA students, we encourage any and all eligible high school students to enter,” Mueller said. He added that any adult can assemble and register a team. “You don’t have to be an ag teacher, farmer or involved in agriculture to sign up a team.”

The dates for regional scouting contests are: • July 26, at the Armstrong farm, near Lewis • July 29, at the Northeast farm, near Nashua • August 3, at the Northwest farm, north of Cherokee • August 5, at the Southeast farm, near Crawfordsville The state final will take place August 19 at ISU’s Field Extension and Education Laboratory, near Boone. The scouting competition was developed and organized by Mueller; Jay Staker, ISU Extension youth development specialist; Adam Sisson, ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative program assistant; and Alan Spencer, Iowa FFA executive secretary. It was funded by a grant from the North Central Integrated Pest Management Center, with funding for some of the curriculum materials supplied by Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. and the Iowa Soybean Association. For more information, or to register for the competition, contact Sisson at (515) 294-5899 or ajsisson@iastate.edu.

Safe and healthy grilling tips Everyone can feel good about grilling, a naturally low-fat method of dry heat cookery for their favorite meats, by monitoring heat levels and doneness. Follow the following simple and safe tips: • Savor the Flavor - marinades add flavor to meat and poultry and can tenderize less tender cuts of meat. In addition, marinades with little or no sugar may help protect meat from charring and have also been shown to reduce HCA formation. Before cooking, remove meat from marinade and pat dry with a paper towel to promote even browning and prevent steaming. Sugary sauces and glazes can burn easily and cause charring. If using these types of products, baste during the last few minutes of grilling and avoid charring.

• The Heat is On‌medium. Use medium heat while cooking to ensure delicious, flavorful meat. High heat can overcook or char the outside of meat while the interior remains underdone. For charcoal grilling, medium heat is achieved when coals are no longer flaming, and are ash-covered and spread in a single layer. For gas grilling, consult the owner’s manual for specific information about preparing the grill for medium heat since gas grill brands vary greatly. • Determine Doneness. Lean meat’s tender, juicy texture is optimum when cooked to the proper doneness. For steaks, this is medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F). For burgers, an instant-read thermometer is the only way to ensure that your ground beef is cooked to the

proper temperature of 160°F – color and juices don’t tell the whole story. Insert an instant-read thermometer horizontally into the side of burgers and steaks to check temperature. Place the thermometer in the thickest part or center of the burger or steak. For steaks, the thermometer should not touch bone, fat or the grill. • Go Lean. There are 29 beef cuts that meet government guidelines for “leanâ€? with less than 10 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per three-ounce cooked serving and 100 grams. Choose from traditional favorites like flank, tenderloin and T-bone steaks, as well as 95% lean ground beef.

Going green Shenandoah ethanol plant expands with algae project by Kevin Slater, The Valley News, Shenandoah Going green is both a figurative and literal saying when it comes to Phase II of the BioProcess Algae LLC algae project which is currently underway at Green Plains Renewable Energy’s ethanol plant in Shenandoah. “Phase II will build on Phase I efforts to optimize growth of algae in our reactors through improved utilization of light, more efficient carbon dioxide absorption and enhanced dewatering and water re-use,� said Tim Burns, Chief Executive Officer of BioProcess Algae, LLC. “Phase II will also allow for robust verification of growth rates, energy balances, and operating expenses, which we consider to be some of the key steps to commercialization.� BioProcess Algae LLC, which is a joint venture between Green Plains, Clarcor Inc., BioProcessH2O and NTR, developed advanced Grower Harvester technology, including around 33 patents. BioProcess Algae is currently producing algae with its commercial scale bioreactors. The recently completed 4,000 square foot facility houses the Grower Harvester bioreactors, which were successfully started up in January 2011. The Phase II bioreactors at the project site are 20

times larger than the successful Phase I bioreactors deployed in October 2009. “This provides a whole new avenue to produce oils and proteins,� said Shenandoah Chamber and Industry Executive Vice President Gregg Connell who was instrumental in getting the project going. The algae grown and harvested from the Phase II bioreactors have the potential to be used for advanced bio-fuel production, high quality animal feed, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, and/or as biomass for energy production. In addition to the greener and more efficient fuel that is produced, an added benefit from the co-location of the algae project is the ability to use the carbon dioxide that is a by-product of the ethanol production process. This keeps the greenhouse gases from being released into the atmosphere. The algae project is being done in conjunction with the Iowa Power Fund, which awarded a $2,085,000 grant for the project. Goals for Phase II of the project are to satisfactorily demonstrate the scalability of technology. BioProcess Algae plans to utilize third-party verification for productivity, harvest densities and the product value concerning lipid content and composition.

Advanced biofuels have the ability to play an important role in diversifying the world’s energy sources and curbing greehouse gas emissions. They have lower carbon emissions and lower sulfur than petroleum-based fuels. A U.S. government mandate is in place to increase the biodiesel usuage from 500 million gallons in 2009 to one billion gallons in 2012. “When algae become a huge player in the biodiesel and animal protein market, it will be because the Iowa Power Fund allowed us to dream,� said Connell. Burns shared Connell’s sentiments. “We truly appreciate the vision and commitment of the Iowa Power Fund,� said Burns. “If we achieve our goal of commercializing this technology, it will not only bring jobs to the State of Iowa, it will put Iowa on the cutting edge of providing a high quality feedstock to potentially reduce our country’s dependence on foreign sources of oil.� The project is off to a successful start and on April 15, the facility was paid a visit by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, proving the eyes of the nation are anxiously watching to see the results of this cutting edge project that is the first of its kind.

Beef producers invited to grazing systems program Beef producers interested in learning the latest on fescue management and forage-based diet supplementation will want to attend one of two grazing systems workshops in southern Iowa this month. The program brochure is available on the Iowa Beef Center (IBC) website, www.iabeef.org. Iowa State University (ISU) Extension beef program specialist Joe Sellers said both sessions will have the same speakers and content, so people can choose the most convenient location and date.

The sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, at the Clarke County Fairgrounds in Osceola and Wednesday, May 18, at the Wayne County Courthouse in Corydon. Both begin at 7 p.m. Featured speaker Craig Roberts from the University of Missouri will review management practices that reduce health problems and increase cattle production on fescue pastures. “Fescue toxicosis continues to create problems in Iowa beef herds, particularly where producers have pastures with longer rest

periods than normal, resulting in mature fescue with higher alkaloid levels,” said Sellers. Roberts also will help producers determine which grazing systems may work for their operations. Sellers will present information on supplementing forage-based diets and will lead a question-answer session on local issues. Cost is $10 per person, payable at the door. For more information, contact Sellers by phone at 641-203-1270 or by email at sellers@iastate.edu.

IBIC and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association sponsored the contest.

The Rusty Duck received a plaque and a media package prize that included an on-site live radio announcement. This is the second year IBIC and ICA have sponsored the contest. Last year’s winner was the Sac County Cattle Company of Sac City.
