Statewide average wind speeds between 12 and 19 mph provide energy potential by Emma Struve

Capturing the wind’s energy has nearly come full circle in rural Iowa. According to the Iowa Energy Center’s “A History of Wind Energy,” in the late 1800s, nearly 80 U.S. companies manufactured windmills, primarily used to pump water for livestock, and the machines comprised a major American export product. About 40 years later, small two and three bladed electricity-generating turbines were installed at hundreds of thousands of rural, midwestern homesteads to charge batteries or run small appliances and lights. While the first recorded use of wind turbines occurred more than a thousands years ago in the Middle East, technological innovation of the devices slowed to a crawl with the invention and increasingly common use of steam and later diesel engines, and the creation of a reliable, widespread electrical grid.

After three decades, Christensen retires from NRCS office Tenure spans time from paper to computerized applications by Emma Struve

At the end of June, Jean Christensen retired from her position as the Crawford County Soil and Water Conservation District secretary, a position she held for about 35 years and the second job she worked since graduating from Manning High School in 1961. Christensen grew up near Aspinwall with her twin sister and family, including another sister and brother, before moving to Nebraska and working with Mutual of Omaha. Literally, the day after high school graduation, Christensen was at work. “I couldn’t wait to get away from home and start my own job,” she explained. Christensen and her husband, James, met in high school and married in June 1962. They have four kids: Jolene, Jeff, Janelle, and Julie (yes, all the “Js” were on purpose). The family has resided in Denison since 1965. In November, James and Jean will welcome their first greatgrandchild, who will join their existing 10 grandchildren. When Christensen accepted a parttime assistant secretary position with the Soil and Water Conservation District in 1974, in a combined office with the NRCS (USDA Natural

Resource Conservation Service in Crawford County), she did not anticipate remaining with the job for three decades. Shortly after she was hired, Christensen was promoted to secretary. In the intervening years, Christensen worked under three different bosses, and in three different locations. Most recently, Christensen worked with District Conservationist Jay Ford, though Ford also has accumulated quite a tenure at the office: more than 30 years. The office relocated to 3707 Timberline Drive, just south of Yellow Smoke Park, in 2001 but before that was in uptown Denison. Christensen has seen other changes in the office, too. “When I started, you know, I did my typing on an old manual typewriter. Of course, nowadays, everything’s computerized,” she described. “That was something I had to learn – on the job training.” Coinciding with Christensen’s hiring was the beginning of the state’s cost share program to help farmers institute conservation practices on their land, which include installing terraces, waterways, and windbreaks. In keeping with the modernization of the office, the conservation pro-

"When I started, you know, I did my typing on an old manual typewriter. Of couse, nowadays, everything’s computerized. That was something I had to learn - on the job training.'' Jean Christensen retired NRCS secretary Jean Christensen saw many changes during her 35 years working at the NRCS office in Crawford County. She retired at the end of June.

grams’ application process, once entirely paper based, are now nearly completely computerized. “You still have as many forms, just a different way of doing it,” Christensen quipped. She observed that the number of landowners in the county has seemed to stay about the same and they made up some of the most fun and rewarding parts of her job: “Visiting with people, landowners. I get along well with everybody here,” she remarked. In contrast, the most challenging aspect of the position was adapting to the computer work. Once she retires, “I’ll miss people

here, but I won’t miss the paperwork and computer work,” Christensen commented. After her retirement, Christensen said she and her husband would like to travel. “There’s some places in the U.S. we’ve never been,” Christensen stated. First on the list to explore are Las Vegas and Washington, D.C. Another change, “I’m looking forward to spending a summer outdoors,” she commented. Christensen said she enjoys gardening and camping with her kids and grandkids. Though, Christensen admitted, she has some mixed feelings about retiring, a combination of excitement to “call your time your own” and some anxiety. She concluded, “I kind of hate leaving the people.”

Across the road from his residence are two coal plants, Ashler said, that release sulfur into the air. “You have to pay a little more but you have healthier air to breathe,” Ashler said of the turbine. As in Mangold’s case, technology has changed since Ashler erected his turbine. It is aging and requiring costly repairs. He chose to purchase the unit from a company in Minnesota making it difficult to get service.

agreement with his electricity supplier mandates that he purchase power from the company at the retail rate of approximately 13¢ per kilowatt and he is paid wholesale for the excess power he generates, a rate of about 2¢ per kilowatt. Ashler advised those considering installation of a system to carefully consider the ongoing service capabilities of the turbine dealer, the opportunities available through the local power company, and carefully size the turbine to power usage. An additional consideration, offered Haffner, is the county or municipality zoning requirements. Ashler’s unit, which produces between 1,000 and 3,000 kilowatts per month, does not always meet his needs. “Six months out of the year it pays the electric bill, and six months it doesn’t,” he said. The Iowa Energy Center, created by an act of the Iowa General Assembly in 1990, is located in Ames and administrated by Iowa State University. The center’s mission is to conduct and sponsor research on energy efficiency, alternative energy systems, and energy conservation; provide educational and demonstration programs; and assist Iowans in assessing alternative energy technology including wind, solar, biomass, and hydro. Tools such as wind maps showing average monthly wind speeds by location and a turbine output calculator are available at the center’s Web site: www.energy.iastate.edu. The site also includes information about grants and available funding for individuals or businesses considering the purchase of alternative energy technology.

Laughing, lessons, and learning For 11 years, I have been trying to convince my farmer to take our children on a vacation. Well, to be fair, it’s just been the last five. For our 10th anniversary, he and I went to Jamaica, our first big vacation since our honeymoon. He loved it and wanted to go back, and I told him we had to take a vacation with the kids first. You see, we have a mixed marriage when it comes to vacation priorities. His family’s vacation each year was going to the Iowa State Fair for a day. My family’s vacation was winding our way through the western United States with stops at my aunts’ homes in Colorado and California. When I

graduated from high school, I had seen almost everything west of Iowa, except Alaska, Hawaii, Washington and Oregon. By the time my husband had graduated from high school, he had seen significantly less. However, he did take a trip with the FFA to go fishing in Canada . So, my farmer was perfectly happy taking our children to the Iowa State Fair each year as our vacation. I was not content. I want my children to see more of the world like I did. For my 40th birthday, I said I wanted to take a trip with the kids somewhere fun. I saw online that Science City in Kansas City was hosting the

“Chronicles of Narnia” exhibit from May through August, so I thought that would be perfect. I had been to Science City when I was working with Girl Scouts, and it offers a wonderful educational opportunity for kids...and they don’t even know they’re learning because it’s so much fun! I talked him into one day but because he didn’t want to do so much driving in one day, we left the night before and stayed in a hotel. He learned some lessons that night. First, you can make it from Denison to Kansas City on one tank of gas, but make sure you don’t get lost. Second, double check exit numbers because the directions on the

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch websites aren’t always right when road construction is involved. Third, the downtown Kansas City interstate system may have been designed by someone who didn’t “ace” their civil engineering final exams...allegedly. I learned that my husband gets way more tense in stressful conditions than I do, such as not being able to get off the correct exit, getting lost, almost running out of gas, and having your children in the backseat in a questionable neighborhood. Afterwards, speaking with my father, I told him my tendency to remain calm was because of those fun situations growing up with his “shortcuts” on vacations. Prime example: “We can take this gravel road because it’s only gravel for this much (quarter inch) on the map.” Two hours later, still on the gravel road, going over cattle grates through the middle of nowhere, and running out of gas, dad and mom were a little less than laid back about the situation. I learned that stress is relative. Telling him about our Kansas City expe-

rience, dad said, “I wonder how ladies who haven’t grown up with me as a father handle it.” For me, it was just another vacation experience. The next morning, the kids loved Science City and the Narnia exhibit. We got through all of that before lunch. Growing up, my dad had taught me the art of seeing everything quickly during his lessthan-laid-back years. We went through the San Diego Zoo in two hours and saw everything. Of course, we didn’t stop to read about the elephants or giraffes. He said we could look it up in the encyclopedias when we got home. One of my coworkers told me about the Crayola Cafe in the Crown Center, so we went there for lunch. It was wonderful. Then, my oldest son wanted to see an exhibit of a Lego artist. The things that can be done with Legos are incredible! He is even learning more about him, and trading emails with the artist, as a 4H project. All-in-all, I would say that we had a very fun, and educational time. I joked on the way back to the car that with the two museum exhibits, science exhibits, and the planetarium “Peter and the Wolf” show, I instilled some culture into the boys and they didn’t even know it. My husband asked if he could instill some of his culture into the boys during the next vacation. I told him they were a little young for NASCAR and beer.

Denison FFA landscaping and nursery team is state reserve champion by Nate Ketelsen, Denison FFA Reporter

“I feel confident in most of the areas,” said Denison FFA member Lucas Ipsen, “but we need to work on the landscaping general knowledge.” That thought was shared by all members of the Denison FFA Landscaping and Nursery team as they worked the afternoon and evening before the state event. Lucas Ipsen, Christina Riessen, Mike Rothe, and Kyle Rickers participated in the Iowa FFA Landscaping and Nursery Career Development event on the Des Moines Area Community College campus in Ankeny. The FFA activity strengthens the skills of students that are interested in the field of landscaping.

The test covered a wide area of topics from diseases to fertilization, lawn care to tree planting, and from grafting to starting plants from seed. Participants had to identify 56 different trees and shrubs and 30 types of plant disorders that ranged from diseases, insects, nutritional, environmental and weed problems.

(CDE) was plant selection. In this portion of the competition FFA members had to select five plants out of 10 they would use for a specific landscaping situation. Plant specimens included deciduous trees, evergreens, deciduous shrubs, evergreen shrubs and ground cover. A landscape drawing was provided and members answered 10 questions related to the plan, which involved math computation and general information. The last segment of the competition involved analyzing problems that may occur with landscaping tools. Equipment could include mowers, chainsaws, trimmers, aerators and hand tools. All members of the Denison FFA had individual success in this state event. Lucas Ipsen placed third in general knowledge. Christina Riessen finished third in plant identification. Kyle Rickers was the third place individual in the plant disorders and assessments and was the champion in the landscaping general knowledge test. All placed in the top 10 overall with Lucas placing 9th, Christina earning 7th, Kyle finishing 5th, and with consistent scores Mike Rothe placing the highest for the Denison FFA in 4th. As a team the Denison FFA placed 8th in the plant selection, 7th in plant disorder, 6th on the drawing practicum, 4th in math problem solving, 3rd in equipment solutions, 2nd in plant identification, and was the champion team in the landscaping general knowledge test. The combined effort made the Denison FFA the state reserve champion landscaping and nursery team. “I learned what trees are in my yard and I can identify the plants around the community,” commented Christina Riessen. “Everything you do becomes part of your life,” said Lucas Ipsen. “Landscaping has been a good experience for me.”

Iowa’s transient soils The cost of erosion extends beyond lost crop ground productivity by Emma Struve

In many cases, the need for ditch cleaning, both a common sight and work vital to maintaining roadways, is reduced when conservation practices are implemented in surrounding cropland. “Basically, the county has some ditches that get cleaned out quite frequently. That’s a sign that something’s not being done right above,” said Jay Ford, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service district conservationist. Crawford County Engineer Paul Assman said that some area ditches require cleaning every few years, while others may not need attention for fifty, if ever. “I think three to five years is too often; I’d rather see it closer to 10-20,” he continued. Whether erosion is identified because the ditches a field drains into are filling with top soil or the producer begins to notice rills and ephemerals, the rivulets and trenches cut in fields by running water, Ford offered three options for good conservation practices. The first, which requires little or no outside assistance, is no-tilling row crops. The second line of defense against erosion is to maintain properly functioning waterways. “A lot of what’s in the ditches, is because waterways aren’t functioning correctly,” said Ford. In some cases the waterway may not be the correct shape or cross section to promote drainage. Also, waterways, in time, may become full of silt, which then causes water to run down the sides, he explained. Repairing or installing waterways, Ford remarked, will “take care of the most acres the quickest.” A third strategy, and the option that requires the most input, is to install terraces, which Ford explained literally decrease the drainage area of a field because they capture water. According to Ford, about 75 percent of erosion situations are remediable. For the remaining 25 percent, there may not be anything new or different that can be done to prevent erosion. For instance, Assman recalled, that on June 8 and 9 of 2008 some areas in Crawford County received between six and seven inches of rainfall, which he called “a pretty intense event” that resulted in a “substantial amount of erosion.” Structures in place for decades failed to provide adequate protection and unprotected fields contributed to the top soil loss. Erosion from routine and catastrophic events contribute to problems. “What happens then is, the soil moves down into our ditches,” Assman stated. Essentially, he explained, erosion dumping soil

into road ditches reduces the road’s ability to carry loads in the long term. Specifically, when the ground around the road becomes saturated because water cannot efficiently drain away, the structure of the roadbed and surrounding ditches is compromised. Effects of the process are seen when hillsides slough off or sections of a roadway become difficult or nearly impossible to maintain, regardless of surface type. The destabilization may be most evident on gravel roads but the same effect occurs under paved roads – the underlying subgrade cannot support the vehicle load and the road surface, whether asphalt or cement, disintegrates during a shortened life span.

“The performance of a roadway is in large part a function of drainage, surface type, and nature of the traffic,” Assman summarized. The county’s tax payers then become responsible for the expense to repair roads and clean ditches. Since April of 2009, Crawford County has hired contractors for ditch cleaning projects in nine townships in addition to the projects underway by the two in-house ditch cleaning crews. Bid amounts for the nine contracted projects has exceeded $270,000. Assman said the going rate for ditch cleanout is five dollars per linear foot. In Crawford County, there are more than 876 miles of gravel roads, meaning there are more than 1,700 miles of ditches. In addition to the detrimental effect erosion has on roadways, flowing water that carries sediment begins at a non-point source but becomes concentrated and more aggressive as it travels through the watershed into ditches, streams, and finally into lakes or ponds eventually compromising water quality, Assman pointed out. He stated that it is everyone’s best interest to “keep soil in the fields.” While it is difficult to attribute yield loss to erosion in a formulaic way because so many factors must be taken together, a very rough estimate, Ford offered, would be a 10 to 15 percent yield loss for each phase of top soil erosion. Though, he continued, “Erosion is easy to mask with fertilizer.” Still, Ford concluded, “If you let it (top soil) go, you’re loosing productivity. I don’t think anybody would argue with that.”

Hot humid days hard on people, good for crops by Emma Struve

Most of the state saw a dramatic weather transition in June from unseasonably cool temperatures and fitful rainfall to extremely warm and wet conditions. ISU Extension agronomy specialist from across western Iowa responded to an e-mail survey conducted by Iowa Farm & Ranch to gauge crop progress. George Cummins, ISU Extension field agronomist from Charles City,

provides service in Winnebago, Worth, Mitchell, Hancock, Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Franklin, Butler, Bremer, Grundy, Black Hawk Counties in north central Iowa. “It took us six weeks to get everything planted the first time because of the wet, rainy spells,” Cummins stated. “GDUs (growing degree days) didn’t accumulate very fast in early June; and the corn growth particularly was running seven to ten days behind. “The warm muggy

TIRES - TIRES - TIRES - TIRES

weather that is uncomfortable for us speeds corn growth.” Though, Cummins said, “We are in much better shape than in 2008 at this time.” Given the challenges that occurred already this growing season and existing conditions, Cummins offered, “Conditions vary across the area…final yields are yet to be determined but the potential is there for a good crop for many. “Farmers start the season as optimists with 100 percent of their yield goal and start subtracting as the season progresses (for) delayed planting, reduced stand, hail damage, early frost, etc…but many farmers

have subtracted little so far,” he explained. Cummins reported that soybean aphids have been found in north east and central Iowa contributing to a theory that 2009 may be similar to 2007 when aphid treatments were justifiable. “Weed management is probably demanding most of the attention so far.” Cummins continued, “Stalk borers are moving from grassy areas into nearby corn. No major Black Cutworm outbreaks have been identified.” Beginning the first part of July, ISU will be monitoring for Western Bean Cutworm and will continue observation of

corn rootworms (CRW) as the transition takes place in late June from damaging, root-eating larvae to flying adults. Cummins elaborated, “ISU is monitoring CRW flights along north/south transects – Highways 14, 63, and 150 – to determine if extended diapause (second year hatchlings) or the Western CRW variant from Illinois are causing problems in first year corn following soybeans.” Joel DeJong, ISU Extension agronomy field specialist based in Le Mars, covers Lyon, Osceola, Sioux, O’Brien, Plymouth, Cherokee, and Woodbury Counties. He reported that early crop growth was slow since the northwest Iowa area for which he provides service was cool and very dry. “We had more anhydrous burns in cornfields than I have seen for a long time,” DeJong stated in an e-mail interview. As the weather warmed and rainfall came, plants started growing rapidly. “Most fields look very good right now, except for some locations south

of Sioux City where soils are higher in clay, and rainfall has made it too wet,” DeJong continued. While acknowledging that the recent spate of wet weather has made it difficult to find adequate time for herbicide application, DeJong said, “I think more producers should have been more aggressive earlier with weed management…the fields that did not have a pre-emergent herbicide applied have probably lost yield due to weed competition.” In northwest Iowa, DeJong reported field scouts are finding a little black cutworm damage and some soybean aphids. As for the aphids, “Almost all are at very low levels. But, I would encourage people to start scouting for this insect,” he said. DeJong also reminded producers that it is almost time to assess damage from rootworm larvae. Unlike many areas in Iowa in 2008, the northwest was fairly dry. “Maturity is a little ahead of this time last year, but in the northwest corner I think we Continued on page 17

HUMID Continued from page 13 are now wetter than last year,” DeJong commented. “Our key to really good yields in corn last year were probably more due to the cooler than average

IOWA FARM & RANCH weather after pollination – so we will see what this year brings. Hot weather then would not be a plus, and would make it difficult to reach those good yields we saw in 2008 for corn.” DeJong provided the following information about an educational

opportunity in the area: Iowa is hosting the Upper Midwest Manure Expo on July 22 near Boone, with more information available at www.abe.iastate.edu/wa stemgmt. Mark Wuebker is the ISU Extension field agronomist stationed in

Altoona that serves Dallas, Polk, Jasper, Poweshiek, Madison, Warren, and Marion Counties. He described this year’s weather as a “roller coaster.” “We were short on heat units in May, then caught up in the last week to near normal,” Wuebker said. “Then, the exact same thing happens again in June when we got very high heat and humidity. The

PAGE 17 positive side was that with all the moisture, the very high units weren’t wasted and the crops are now at near normal development.” Looking at long-term management strategies, Wuebker suggested, “As we appear to be in a wetter than normal pattern, growers may evaluate their weed control program to include preemergence herbicides in both corn and soybeans.”

This year’s delays in post-emergence application may cause compromised yields. “Weed competition early in the season can rob top end yield potential,” Wuebker explained. Scouting for pests has been continuous in central Iowa. Wuebker noted that “the cool temperatures that delayed crop development also slowed insect development, and in the case of black cutworm, allowed them to feed longer.” He also commented on the variability of conditions across the state and pointed out that in the southeaster two thirds, delayed planting and replanting is common. Producers in Ida, Sac, Calhoun, Monona, Crawford, Carroll, and Greene Counties may utilize the expertise of ISU Extension Field Agronomist Mark Licht. This particular area has experienced almost ideal circumstances so far in 2009: “West Central Iowa had perfect planting conditions, has avoided severe weather; and, outside two cool weeks in June, has had near perfect temperature and rainfall,” Licht reported. “I don’t know what ‘normal’ or ‘average’ is, but I have to think that this year is not normal; rather, better than normal.

more money,” Muhlbauer said. Ultimately, Muhlbauer continued, the cost of implementing such a system would very likely get passed on to consumers. Livestock producers also question whether such a system is truly necessary. Muhlbauer remarked that many, if not most, producers already keep records and can document from where their animals are purchased, and to whom they are sold. He argued that this makes traceability possible without any additional system. Dwindling support for the NAIS has one Nebraska livestock organization calling on state livestock producers to reject the idea of making the program mandatory.

Glidden man drives home a winner Craig Daniel was a winner at the Iowa Speedway in Newton even before the Iowa Corn Indy 250 got under way on June 21. Daniel was the first to try his key and was surprised when it opened the door of the 2009 flex-fuel (FFV) Chevy Silverado. The drawing, conducted before nearly 40,000 spectators just before the race began was the high point of the Iowa Corn Fed campaign, a six-month Iowa corn growers’ program to showcase the many ways corn benefits Iowa and Iowans. Ethanol use was just one benefit featured in the program, which included food and feed uses for corn and messages about corn’s importance to Iowa’s economy, environment

and energy independence. “We’ve reached thousands of people with the Iowa Corn Fed campaign,” said Shannon Textor, director of market development for the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) and the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA). In addition to ethanol, weekly winners took home corn-fed beef, pork and other groceries, Textor said. “The Chevy Silverado was the grand prize and giving it away at a venue focus on the power of ethanol, like the Iowa Corn Indy 250 makes sense,” she concluded. Ten randomly selected finalists from more than 11,000 entries received free tickets to the Iowa Corn Indy 250 to par-

ticipate in the giveaway. In addition to Craig Daniel from Glidden, the other finalists included: Margaret Backhaus, Westside; Kevin Gribben, Mason City; Nick Horstman, Britt; Rose Kreiman, Bloomfield; Darrell Jensen, Audubon; Julie Zittergruen, Guttenberg; Allison Pendroy, Urbandale; Roger Hoffman, Cedar Rapids; and Kent Reinking, Oelwein. Textor thanked Iowa’s Premier 10 Chevy Dealers, the Iowa Speedway, Kum & Go, the Iowa Beef Council, the Iowa Pork Producers and Mediacom for joining with the Iowa Corn Growers Association and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board to sponsor the Iowa Corn Fed sweepstakes.

USDA meets President’s 30-day biofuels directive to help meet country’s energy needs Responding to President Obama’s directive to expedite and increase the production of biofuels, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in June announced that USDA met its 30-day deadline to help produce more energy from homegrown, renewable sources. “Further developing the biofuels industry helps create jobs and stimulates rural economies, an important part of getting our economy back on track,” said Vilsack. “President Obama and I are committed to advancing clean and renewable energy as it creates jobs domestically and boosts tax revenues at all levels of government.” On May 5, President Obama asked USDA to expedite the biofuels provisions of the energy title of the 2008 Farm Bill within 30 days, including the following: Providing loan guarantees and grants for biorePrograms to fineries provide critical Expediting funding to encourage biorefineries support to to replace the use of fosnation’s sil fuels in plant operations biofuels Expediting funding to industry encourage production of next-generation biofuels Expanding the Rural Energy for America Program Providing guidance and support for collection, harvest, storage, and transportation in biomass conversion facilities Details about USDA’s recent efforts to support the biofuels industry are: Loan Guarantees for Biorefineries. USDA is currently reviewing a $25 million loan guarantee application to retrofit a biodiesel refinery to produce second-generation biofuels. The funding of this venture will be the second such guarantee to be funded under the 2008 Farm Bill. In January, USDA awarded an $80 million loan guarantee for the production of cellulosic ethanol. A second round of applications received as part of an April 30, 2009, solicitation for applications is currently under review. These involve second- and third-generation biofuel technologies to produce cellulosic ethanol, biodiesel, and methane gas and electricity. Awards for the second round are projected for September 15, 2009. Assistance for Biorefineries Replacing Fossil Fuels. USDA will provide up to $20 million to offer financial assistance to biorefineries to replace fossil fuels used to produce heat or operate biorefineries with renewable biomass. Encourage Production of Next-Generation Biofuels. USDA will provide $30 million to provide payments to eligible agricultural producers to support and ensure an expanding production of advanced biofuels. Rural Energy for America Program. USDA is now accepting applications for feasibility studies, loan guarantees, and grants for renewable energy systems and energy efficiency improvements as well as for applications to conduct energy audits on behalf of agriculture producers and rural small businesses. Funds will be used to assist agricultural producers and rural small businesses by conducting energy audits and providing recommendations and information on renewable energy development assistance and improving energy efficiency. These projects - energy audits and renewable energy systems development/energy efficiency improvements assistance - are designed to help agricultural producers and rural small businesses reduce energy costs and consumption and help meet the nation’s critical energy needs. For more information on this program and application deadlines, please visit www.rurdev.usda.gov. Biomass Crop Assistance Program. USDA is launching a program that will provide compensation for the collection, harvest, storage, and transportation of biomass intended to meet the country’s energy needs in a more sustainable manner. The program will provide financial assistance for delivery of eligible biomass material to conversion facilities that use biomass for heat, power, biobased products or biofuels. USDA, through the Farm Service Agency, will provide matching payments for collecting, harvesting, storing and transporting eligible materials at a rate of one dollar for each dollar per dry ton paid by a qualified biomass conversion facility for the biomass.

Lean hog trade has been lower this week due to profit taking by market longs. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is 105 lower on the July contract and August is down 12. Cash trade is expected to remain steady, but reports of a low Saturday kill plan could keep cash price on the defensive. We should see mixed trade near-term due to some bear spreading from the Goldman Roll. There are rumors out of Canada that the government will continue to take more sows out of production; this round of liquidation is rumored to be more aggressive than previous attempts. Russia did announce early this week that it had lifted its ban on pork products from select states, so we could see some demand come back to this market. On the August chart, the market ran into resistance just below the 40-day at 6325; nearby support is down at the 10-day at 6017 and then the 20-day at 6000.

CATTLE 7/9/09 Live cattle trade has been lower this week due to profit taking and outside market pressure. The lower stock market and weak overall movement in commodities has also been noted for the weakness. Heading into Thursday, the weekly net changes are 152 lower on August and October is down 190. September feeders are 27 lower on the week. Cash trade has been slow to develop this week with asking prices firm at $85/$135.

There is some cash optimism around, but with the choice cutout under $140 I believe cash trade will have a ceiling in the $83$84 area. Packers have slowed chain speed in an attempt to fight poor processing margins, but this will create the potential for larger showlists. The cutout finished higher on Wednesday with choice up 45 at $138.45 and select was up 10 at $132.63. The weather is also something we need

to keep an eye on; prolonged heat could spark a small short covering bounce. But for this week the forecasts have lessened the expected heat as we have moved through the week. Hedgers call with questions, we had an opportunity with the rally last week into Monday to get some protection in place in the upper part of our monthly range.

WHEAT 7/9/09

CORN 7/9/09

SOYBEANS 7/9/09

Wheat trade is lower on the week due to outside market pressure and chart selling. After three days of trade, the weekly net changes on the September contracts are 12 lower in Chicago, and KC and Minneapolis are down 18. Most of the length has been pulled out of this market over the last few weeks with the funds moving to a net short position. This opens the door for a short covering bounce, but many traders are only looking for a dead cat bounce without fresh supportive news. Expectations are to see higher ending stocks on Friday's USDA Supply and Demand report which should limit upside near-term. The wheat carryover estimate is 693 million bushels with a range of 589 to 776. The all wheat production estimate is at 2.1 billion bushels, the range is 2.07 to 2.17. The spring wheat average trade guess is 505 million bushels with a range of 468 to 546. We are hearing more concerns over quality issues regarding vomitoxin and low protein content, but the Quarterly Stocks and Acreage Report last week was a reminder that supplies are ample and we will need a significant weather scare to justify a sustained rally. On the Chicago chart, the trend is bearish; the next downside target is $4.55 which was the nearby Chicago low in December. This market is overdue for a bounce, but we will need to see outside markets rebound first. On the weekly progress report, winter wheat harvest was listed as 56% complete versus 52% a year ago and the 59% 5-year average. Percent Headed for spring wheat came in at 30% compared to 54% a year ago and the 65% 5-year average. The crop condition report listed spring wheat as 72% good to excellent versus 76% a week ago. Winter wheat was listed as 47% good to excellent up 2% from last week. The weekly export sales number was at 584,200 tons which was just above expectations. The export sales have been so slow in 2009 that we should expect an increase with many world buyers hand to mouth right now and they may look to extend coverage with the lower prices. Hedgers call with questions.

Corn trade is lower on the week due to continued good weather and bearishness due to the larger acreage number. After three days of trade, the weekly net change is 20 lower on the September contract and December is down 23. The outside markets influence has been negative this week; crude is nearly $7 lower and $13 from the late June high, the dollar is 50 higher and the DOW is 150 lower for the week. Weather has remained mostly benign, which has left the market looking for improving crop conditions and, in the big picture, expecting an above trendline yield. The market has seen continued liquidation this week following the USDA’s Quarterly Stocks and planting report last week; speculative longs have taken a beating with corn now around $1.40 below the June highs. Due to the sharp increase in corn acreage, the market is now expecting higher carryover numbers on the July USDA Supply and Demand report that will be released this Friday. The average trade guess for the old crop carryover is 1.69 billion with a range of 1.6 to 1.85; the new crop average trade guess is 1.57 billion with a range between 1.3 and 1.8 billion. The charts continue to look poor following last weeks report; the trade is below all major moving averages and we printed a new low for the year on Wednesday. Granted we are oversold so a quick 20 to 30 cent bounce could be seen. The trade should see demand items pick up with the recent move lower. Ethanol margins this past week moved to the best in a year and the meal/corn spread is historically wide which should provide cattle feeders and incentive to blend more corn into rations plus this increases the value of the DDGs. It will be important for crude to find support near-term, or we risk ethanol margins slipping again. On the weekly crop progress report, percent silking was listed at 8% complete versus 5% a year ago and the 16% 5-year average. Crop condition was reported at 71% good to excellent down 1% from a week ago. The weekly export sales came in at 749,200 tons of old crop and 415,400 tons of new crop, combined they were above expectations. I do look for exports to stay firm well into 2010 which should help curb downside pressure. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade is sharply lower on the week due to fund long liquidation and outside market pressure. Heading into Thursday, the weekly net changes are $1.18 lower on the September contract and November is down $1.14; December meal is $33.40 lower and soybean oil is down 311 points. The CFTC announced on Monday that they will start to limit some speculative interest in the commodities markets to a greater extent than our current limits, which was noted as a catalyst that helped sparked the long liquidation this week. The unwinding of recent bull spreads along with talk that China would release some of their government bean inventories was also noted for the weakness. The July/November spread narrowed to $1.92 on Wednesday versus $2.37 a week ago. The market lost the upward momentum following the USDA Quarterly stocks and Planted Acreage report last week and the market seems to be pricing-in a bearish Supply and Demand report on Friday. The carryover estimates heading into the report on Friday are 107 million bushels for old crop and 229 for new, the new crop has a wide range, 115 to 380 million. The balance sheets are still going to be tight due to the lower than expected 2009 soybean acres and late plantings on the last part of the crop, so there should be some buying interest at these levels. It’s likely the outside markets will need to stay firm or move to higher levels to justify higher trade. The weekly crop ratings improved by 1% up to 68% good to excellent. On the weekly crop progress report, soybean emergence was listed as 66% complete versus 94% a year ago and a 98% 5-year average. Percent blooming was listed as 14% complete compared to 12% a year ago and the 24% 5-year average. The crop condition was listed as 66% good to excellent compared to 68% last week. The weekly soybean export sales came in at 287,000 tons of old crop and new crop sales were 941,600 which were above expectations. Meal sales were reported at 18,400 tons of old crop and new crop exports were 12,500 tons which were below expectations. Soybean oil sales showed net cancellation of 60,200 tons of old crop and new crop sales were above expectations at 98,000 tons. Look for outside markets to continue to dictate trade. We are still a month away from the soybean peak moisture needs. Hedgers call to discuss your individual risk plan.

Eight gardens Tippmann introduces world’s first in eight days propane-powered post driver by Cindy Haynes, Extension Horticulturalist, Iowa State University

The Home Demonstration Gardens prepared by Iowa State University will soon be ready for display and open to the public for another year. Vegetable gardening is increasingly popular in today’s economy, especially since there is the potential to save money by growing food at home. Yet, accurate and reliable, locally useful, information about what to grow and which vegetables provide the most “bang for the buck” is challenging to find. Therefore, one of the themes for the 2009 Iowa State University Extension Home Demonstration Garden is growing vegetables that can stretch your dollar. We also will have some fun with pumpkins and a display of new and unusual flowers.

Storing and preserving vegetables One of the easiest ways to save money with a vegetable garden is to grow vegetables that store or preserve easily. Easily stored vegetables include potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions and winter squash. Some new and some traditional cultivars of these plants will be on display. The cultivars selected are noted for their ability to persist for long periods in proper environmental conditions. Tomatoes, cucumbers, beets and beans can be preserved through canning or freezing. Several cultivars of these plants with good canning or freezing potential are being grown at the Home Demonstration Gardens to showcase the possibilities.

Tippmann Industrial Products, Inc., Fort Wayne, Indiana, has introduced the “Propane Hammer,” the world’s first propane-powered post driver. It is ideal for driving T’Posts, silt fence and any other type of sign post, ground rod, rebar etc. up to 3.5 inches in diameter. It can drive posts into hard, dry, frozen and rocky ground. Tippmann has been in the manufacturing business for more than 30 years and has come up with a patented system for using propane to drive posts in a fashion like no other. Propane is cost effective, time efficient and allows the user to operate the unit and drive several hundred posts on a single 14 oz. propane tank. When the tank runs out, you simply put in a new one. The Propane Hammer weighs less than 45 pounds and is completely self contained allowing the freedom to work in remote areas. There is no need for air compressors, hydraulic units or any other type of external power source, allowing this unit to be easily operated by one person. For a free brochure and additional information, visit propanehammer.com or call toll-free at 866-286-8046 Weighs less than 45 lbs. Simple for one person to operate 100% self contained Operates off a standard 14 oz. propane tank Very mobile Right and left anti vibration handles Drives square, round, u-channel and “T” posts and more Driving force, 700 lbs. Cycles per tank, 6,000 MSRP: $1,995

Ghostly pumpkins Who doesn’t enjoy a good pumpkin patch? While it will be a bit early to pick the perfect pumpkin for Halloween, this patch may give you a few ghostly ideas for next year’s garden. The Home Demonstration Gardens are growing five cultivars of white pumpkins this year. The cultivars vary greatly in size and shape, so there is sure to be at least one that will pique your interest.

Other oddities If you have ever been to a Home Demonstration Garden Field Day before, you know that the display never stops with just vegetables…and this year is no different. There are several new and unusual flowers and annual grasses on display this year; and with names like ‘Bunny Tails’ and ‘Live Wire’ the annual grasses are sure to attract some attention. Other unusual flowers include angelonia, osteospermum, and one called joey. Visit the garden to check out these plants and some of the new cultivars of rudbeckias, marigolds, zinnias, and many others.

IOWA FARM & RANCH

JULY 2009

“Final Acreage Report a Shocker” On Tuesday, June 30, the USDA released the finial planted acreage report for corn, soybeans and wheat as well as the quarterly grain stocks report. The report was a shocker for corn famers and analysts as the USDA increased seeded corn acreage, while most of the industry believed that a wet spring would not only delay plantings but prompt some corn farmers to shift acres from corn to soybeans. The USDA forecast corn planted area for all purposes in 2009 at 87.0 million acres, up 1 percent from last year but 7 percent below 2007. This is the second largest planted acreage since 1946, behind only 2007. This figure was well above the average trade guess of 84.158 million. This figure is also 1.053 million more than a year ago and 2.049 acres more than the March USDA estimate of 84.986 million. Planting proceeded behind the normal pace, similar to last year, as frequent spring precipitation and cold temperatures slowed early season fieldwork and planting activities in the central and eastern Corn Belt, Ohio Valley, and northern Great Plains. On May 10, corn planting was 48 percent complete, down 23 points from the 5-year average. In late May, however, dryer conditions allowed farmers to make rapid progress. Farmers reported that 97 percent of the intended corn acreage had been planted at the time of the survey interview compared with the 10-year average of 98 percent. Quarterly grain stocks for corn were estimated 4.266 million, larger than the estimated 4.190 billion bushels. This is 238 mb higher than last year’s stocks at this time of 4.028 bb. The USDA estimated soybean planted area for 2009 at a record high 77.5 million acres, up 2 percent from last year. This figure is 638,000 smaller than the average trade guess of 78.305 million. This is an increase of 1.765 million acres from last year when U.S. farmers seeded 75.718 million acres. Area for harvest, at 76.5 million acres, is up 3 percent from 2008, and will be the largest harvested area on record, if realized. Compared with last year, planted acreage increased by 200,000 acres or more in Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The largest decrease is in Nebraska, down 400,000 acres from 2008, as many farmers switched to corn this year. Quarterly grain stocks for soybeans are forecast at 597 mb, slightly larger than the guess of 586 mb. This is lower than last year’s stocks of 676 mb. Finally, the USDA estimated all wheat planted area at 59.8 million acres, down 5 percent from 2008. The 2009 winter wheat planted area, at 43.4 million acres, is 6 percent below last year but up 1 percent from the previous estimate. Of this total, about 31.4 million acres are Hard Red Winter, 8.4 million acres are Soft Red Winter, and 3.6 million acres are White Winter. Area planted to other spring wheat for 2009 is estimated at 13.8 million acres, down 3 percent from 2008. Of this total, about 13.1 million acres are Hard Red Spring wheat. Durum planted area for 2009 is estimated at 2.56 million Spring acres, down 6 percent from the previous year. Wheat acres were forecast at 13.77 mb, well above the average trade guess of 13.102 million acres. Last year’s seeded acres were 14.135 million acres. All wheat acres were pegged at 59.775 million, above the average trade guess of 58.337 million. Last year, U.S. farmers seeded 63.147 million acres. Quarterly wheat stocks pegged at 667 million bushels, inline with estimates of 670 million bushels. This is a large increase compared to last year’s 306 mb. With the report’s release, the market focus will

now be solely on weather during the pollination and pod setting timeframe. With the largest soybean acreage and second largest corn acreage on record, a major weather problem will be needed to push values to higher. Be prepared to sell rallies and raise protection levels on weather related rally attempts.

CORN ANALYSIS Corn closed the week $.38 1/2 lower. The weekly export sales report showed net sales of 155,100 MT were up 68 percent from the previous week and 67 percent from the prior 4-week average. Increases reported for Japan (369,600 MT, including 71,700 MT switched from unknown destinations and decreases of 5,900 MT), South Korea (279,800 MT, including 117,900 MT switched from unknown destinations), Egypt (240,000 MT, including 60,000 MT switched from Syria), Taiwan (127,900 MT, including 58,000 MT switched from Japan and 57,900 MT switched from unknown destinations), Mexico (88,700 MT), Canada (36,400 MT). For the marketing year, the U.S. has now exported 1.741 bb of corn compared to 2.363 bb last year. To reach the USDA forecast, the U.S. needs to export 1.1 mb each week to reach the USDA forecast of 1.750 bb. As of June 28, the 2009 crop was rated at 72% g/e vs. 61% a year ago. Iowa was rated 81% g/e, Minnesota was rated 82% g/e with Nebraska rated 82% g/e. Illinois was rated 58% g/e and Indiana was rated 62% g/e. Seasonal highs are in for the corn market and the uptrend line on the weekly charts have been broken. STRATEGY & OUTLOOK Producers should have sold all their 2008 crop. Producers should have managed their risk by placing new crop hedges as December has reached the initial upside target of $4.25 to $4.50 range. A combination of cash sales, hedges and put options are effective risk management tools. If the new crop December contract falls to $3.25, roll the put options to an at the money strike price.

Market Solutions Hedge Program Market Solutions Hedge Program can be used for any size farm no matter how big or small you are. Our plans are to manage risk and take advantage of better than average prices through the course of a production year. Think about this. If the fundamentals tell us $2.25 cash would be a good sale on 400 acres wouldn’t it make sense to sell this same percentage if you farmed 2000 acres? How many times have you planned your crop, produced it, and then did little if any marketing? The future tells us that with rising input cost and a possible reduction in benefits being put into the 2007 Farm Bill, a Market Plan will become very valuable. Our focus is not the size of farm but to understand the fundamentals behind the markets and then make recommendations which will work for both sides.

WHEAT ANALYSIS For the week, Chicago wheat closed $.05 1/4 lower; Kansas City wheat $.25 1/4 lower and Minneapolis wheat $.44 3/4 lower. The weekly export sales report showed net sales of 241,900 metric tons were down 34 percent from the previous week. Increases were reported for Mexico (56,500 MT), Nigeria (41,000 MT), the Philippines (32,500 MT), Ecuador (32,000 MT, including 20,000 MT switched from Colombia and 10,000 MT switched from unknown destinations), Israel (29,000 MT), Italy (19,000 MT, switched from unknown destinations), and Canada (15,800 MT). Decreases were reported for Colombia (16,100 MT). At the start of a new marketing year, wheat sales are well behind last year’s pace, which was poor also. Commitments stand at 160 mb this year vs. 340 mb a year ago. Continued on page 27

SOYBEANS ANALYSIS Soybeans closed the week $.47 lower. The weekly export sales report showed net sales of 193,500 MT were up noticeably from the previous week and from the prior 4-week average. Increases reported for China (68,600 MT, including 58,000 MT switched from unknown destinations), Japan (67,100 MT, including 27,000 MT switched from unknown destinations), Taiwan (58,700 MT), Mexico (43,600 MT), and Canada (29,100 MT), were partially offset by decreases for unknown destinations (85,000 MT) and Syria (10,300 MT). Net sales of 250,100 MT for 2009/10 delivery were for unknown destinations (125,000 MT), China (120,000 MT), Guatemala (4,100 MT), and Barbados (1,000 MT). For the marketing year, the U.S. has now exported 1.251 bb of soybeans compared to 1.126 bb last year. The U.S. now has to export an average of 0.1 mb each week to meet the USDA forecast of 1.250 bb. Planting progress is now reaching completion, except for areas in the eastern belt that will double crop soybeans after harvesting winter wheat. The USDA rated the soybean crop, as of June 28, at 68% g/e, 10% higher than last year’s crop. Iowa is rated 78% g/e, Minnesota is rated 74% g/e, Illinois is rated 55% g/e while Indiana is 63% g/e.

Seasonal highs form this week and commercials are noted as holding a bearish net short position. STRATEGY & OUTLOOK Producers should have sold all of their 2008 crop. Producers should now be hedged in new crop soybeans as November soybeans have reached the long held target to begin a hedging program. A combination of cash sales, hedges and put options are all viable marketing strategies to reduce price risk. If the new crop November contract can rally to $11.50 to $11.75, producers should look to raise protection levels by rolling the put options to a higher strike price.

FINAL ACREAGE REPORT SHOCKER Continued from page 22 The U.S. needs to export 15.1 mb each week to reach the USDA forecast of 900 mb. As of June 21, the USDA rated the spring wheat crop at 76% g/e vs. 74% last year. The USDA estimated harvest at 40% completed by June 28. Texas is 70% completed with Oklahoma 89% finished. Kansas is the largest winter wheat producing state and they have now harvested 47% of their winter wheat crop Seasonally, a low is formed in July as demand for newly harvested wheat should lift prices. Look for harvest lows to form once harvest reaches the 50% stage. STRATEGY & OUTLOOK Producers should have now sold/hedged all of their 2009 crop as KC wheat has reached the long

term price objective of $6.80 to $7.00. A combination of hedges, options and cash sales is a very effective way to manage price risk for producers. Producers can take a shot at re-owning sold wheat on a test of key support of $5.08 Chicago.

LIVE CATTLE ANALYSIS Live cattle ended the week $2.27 higher while feeder cattle ended $4.47 higher. The cash cattle trade occurred in the southern Plains last week at $83 per cwt, $1 higher compared to last week’s trades of $82. Nebraska fed cattle traded at $132, $2 higher compared to the previous week’s cash trade of $130. The higher cash trade was supported by an early week rally in the futures. Cash feeders at the closely watched Oklahoma City auction were steady to $2 higher compared to last week. July’s unemployment report was particularly bearish for cattle futures, because it may indicate consumers will continue avoiding restaurants, which are key markets for beef. Beef demand is a key component for cattle futures and the beef industry. Rallies are meant to be sold as the demand base remains poor. STRATEGY & OUTLOOK Producers should have price protection through a combination of options and hedges from the summer months through the fourth quarter of 2009. Demand remains soft, so continue to hedge cattle as they are purchased. Feed costs should also be covered with call options or done on a hand to mouth basis until lows are established this fall.

LEAN HOGS ANALYSIS Lean hogs closed the week $4.45 higher. The average Iowa-Minnesota hog weight for last week was estimated at 265.1 lbs versus 268.7 lbs previous week and 261.7 lbs last year. Hog weights are starting to turn lower, as seasonally, the heat of summer, normally trims weight gain from hog and assists in keeping their weight down. The USDA estimated total hogs imported from Canada at

1,827,514 head and 1,003,378 feeder pigs. Cash hog prices are hovering in the low $40’s. Weekly futures charts have found support at the $57.00 area. This equates to $42 cash hogs. So until the cash hog market turns lower, look for hog futures to remain in a sideways trading pattern with support at the $57 area and resistance near $62. STRATEGY & OUTLOOK Producers should continue to hedge hogs as they are purchased. Feed input costs should be covered on a hand to mouth basis, until producers have established a minimum price level for hogs. Once that has been achieved, lock in feed costs as well.

7-IFR(LAND AUCTION 2-FARMERS NATIONAL CO)F

Dave Wright, president of the Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska, urged ranchers and farmers from across the state to attend the Nebraska NAIS meeting. Wright said that after five years of voluntary compliance, support for NAIS is very low. Wright added that if the current voluntary system becomes mandatory, the program would fail because the cost of the electronic equipment needed for the tracking system would be “detrimental to the small producer especially in recent years when profit margins have been almost non-existent.” Attendance at the listening sessions has ranged in number from about 30 people at a California meeting to more than 400 at a South Dakota meeting. Approximately 50 people attended the La Vista listening session. During the meeting Bassett, Nebraska rancher Jo Stec commented, “It’s (NAIS) not going to control disease. It’s just another way of keeping track of producers.” Other producers, however, have spoken out in favor of a national system for animal identification. Mike Welch of Denison, is the owner and operator of a 60 head cow/calf and finishing operation. He said he likes the idea of an NAIS. “I’m in favor of it, because if there’s any kind of disease outbreak then you can trace it back to the source,” asserted Welch. According to Welch, the NAIS would also make age and source verification readily available, an attribute of the program that could aid in selling meat products in overseas markets. Feedlot Manager Josh Benton for the University of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center in Mead, Nebraska also said, “The tracking system, I think it’s something that’s needed, but I think people are scared of it.” Nebraska Farmers Union President John Hansen agreed and said USDA missteps have heightened farmers’ mistrust of the program. Though, he continued, his organization supports the concept of national animal identification. Among the issues that Benton saw as being foremost in producer’s minds are how the information would be used and how it would be stored. He said many producers have expressed to him the concern that the information could have a negative impact on them should there be a problem with an animal that was housed on their premises. “The big question is who’s going to manage that tracking system,” he said. “It depends on what they decide to utilize that information for.” Confirming Benton’s speculation were producers at the La Vista listening session such as Kris Harvey, a South Dakota rancher who lives just across the border from Valentine, Nebraska, who said of the proposed ID program: “This will be the end of independent livestock production.” News of the recent bovine tuberculosis outbreak in Nebraska may have changed the complexion of the conversation in Omaha, but Tom Shipley, director of issues management and policy implementation for the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, predicted it would have been a lively debate anyway. He said the association supports NAIS and a national animal identification standard, if participation remains voluntary. “Certainly in a disease situation, having animals already identified helps us more quickly complete our traceback. We need to find out where animals came from and what other animals could have been exposed to the disease,” Dr. David Morris, a staff veterinarian with APHIS, said. “NAIS identification tags are linked to the location where the animals were first tagged. This provides us with two locations to trace from – from tagging going forward and from current location going back – and that helps speed up the process.” In Iowa, the focus remains on improving the number of premises registered in the NAIS program. “Identification of premises is important for notification of producers if a disease problem would occur in a specific location of our state,” Iowa premises identification coordinator Dee Clausen said. “It would allow us to be able to contain a disease problem in a timely manner to eradicate the disease and to respond to a disease incursion in as quickly as possible.” In the end, voices on both sides of the issue will be able to expressed their opinions at the June 30 meeting. Transcriptions of the listening sessions and additional information about NAIS are available for review at the NAIS Web site: animalid.aphis.usda.gov/nais/index.shtml. Contributing to this report were: Emma Struve of the Denison Bulletin and Review, Kris Byars of Wahoo Newspaper, Bob Zientara and Mary Halstrum of the Ames Tribune, Robert Pore of the Grand Island Independen, Leslie Reed of the Omaha World-Heraldt and Bob Eschliman of the Dallas County News.
