Beans use abundant moisture to fill pods

by Emma Struve In the final weeks of the 2010 crop growing season, Iowa State University Extension agronomists note that both corn and soybeans will likely take advantage of hot, humid weather to finish maturing; most anticipate an earlier harvest than in 2009 due to the advanced number of heat units this year, by comparison. Another point of agreement: few, if any, economically important insect and disease pests are anticipated between now and harvest time. “Soybean aphids have been at low numbers thus far, particularly in west central and central Iowa,” stated Mark Licht, ISU agronomist for Sac, Calhoun, Crawford, Carroll, Greene, Boone, Shelby, Audubon, Guthrie, Dallas, and Polk counties. “Soybean maturity is in full pod set to early seed fill. Once maturity reaches mid to late seed-fill, control of soybean aphids tends to come with little yield response.” Aaron Saeugling in south central Iowa also noted very few aphids in the fields he observed. Saeugling, ISU agronomist, covers Adair, Adams, Clarke, Decatur,

Guthrie, Lucas, Ringgold, Taylor, Union, and Wayne counties. “Aphid numbers are low but climbing in northern Iowa, though not at economic thresholds,” said ISU Agronomist John Holmes. “By the time they get there, soybeans will be big enough, spraying will not be economically effective.” Holmes is stationed in Clarion and covers Worth, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Humboldt, Wright, Franklin, Butler, Webster, Hamilton, Hardin, Grundy, and Story counties. Joel DeJong, ISU agronomist in Lyon, Osceola, Sioux, O'Brien, Plymouth, Cherokee, Woodbury, Ida, Monona, and Harrison counties recommended that aphid scouting should continue for at least the next 10 days to two weeks as soybeans, while maturing rapidly, are just now setting pods. He cited a study conducted in Minnesota that found heavy, fast rain reduced aphid populations. “Hot conditions and wet conditions are probably part of the reason aphid populations were kept in check,” DeJong said. Holmes, DeJong and Saeugling noted

problems with green cloverworms in soybeans; in southwest Iowa the treatment threshold was met in some areas. Saeugling added that there are isolated fields with white flies. “Bean leaf beetles are present and causing some defoliation,” Licht said. “But, this year bean leaf beetles are at very low numbers compared to a typical year.” In north central Iowa, Holmes has observed corn root worm beetles in soybean fields, and though they have not caused an economic problem this year he cautioned farmers to be aware that the pest will hatch again next year when the same fields are likely to be planted to corn. Holmes said that one of the most effective strategies employed by producers this year was soybean variety selection, particularly in planting sudden death syndrome (SDS) resistant varieties of beans. This will be particularly important going forward as the disease is carried in residue. Another important item has been field drainage management, stated DeJong. Continued on Page 12

Steers and tears

My son is done with his first year of showing steers, and I must say it has been an educational journey for the Welch family. Last fall, we were looking for a couple steers to join the bottle calf, Simon, in the barn to be raised for the county fair. We were looking for calves that were nice and calm, and most importantly already broken to lead. My son was around 60 pounds soaking wet at the time and my husband was recovering from a broken (I should say shattered) finger caused by a cantankerous steer at the 2009 fair. A calf that was already broken to lead was pretty high up on my husband’s priority list. Tank was a calm calf that we purchased from one farm. But Eeyore, purchased from another, was clearly my son’s favorite. He loved Eeyore from the first time he saw the steer, a cute little black white face in the pasture waiting for a home. Eeyore was very calm, but stubborn. He didn’t run around, but only moved when HE wanted to move. Ten months later, and

Eeyore was still a bit stubborn for almost everyone except my husband and son, who he had grown fond of as well. My son first showed Eeyore at the county fair, in the county-born division. Simon did quite well in the bucket-botttle plus one class, in part, I think because he had a pretty good rate of gain. He was the only calf in the class, but we’re still happy with the “champion” trophy he earned with the purple ribbon. Tank didn’t turn out so well, but my son still learned some lessons showing him, and he still ended up with a blue ribbon, which is what I had hoped. Eeyore came home with the reserve champion ribbon. Everyone, including the breeder, was pretty happy with the placing. I was happier that Eeyore and my son walked around the show ring, nice and calm, and hardly caused any fuss. The thing I most feared was that one of the calves would start acting up in the show ring, and my now 70 pound boy would not be able to control them. To the contrary, they all did a remarkable job.

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch The day was horribly hot, so the calves were cranky. Eeyore was cranky, too, and decided to jump a few times. However, my son held firm and calmed Eeyore down quickly each time. I have never been so proud of him as when he was in that show ring with Eeyore. He was confidant and trusted Eeyore to behave. My son received another purple ribbon at that fair with Eeyore. As we were waiting outside my son needed someone else to hold

A

Eeyore for a minute. I took a step forward, when my mom appeared out of nowhere to take the lead. I’m not going to say she pushed me out of the way to get to the calf, but golly she sure was fast! I chuckled to myself, and enjoyed the sight of my mom holding my son’s calf. We took a picture of my son and Eeyore, then grandpa jumped in the picture with dad, three generations of cattlemen, smiling with an outstanding calf. We walked the calf back to the chute, where my son teared up with the thought of selling him. Luckily, grandma was there with words of encouragement and a much needed hug. Back at work, the city people made fun of us for being a little sad that we have to sell a “cow” this week. It may be a cow to them, but with the number of hours we’ve put into this calf, it’s almost like a pet to us, a member of the family. Selling Eeyore will be hard, but we’re sure going to enjoy a steak we grill later this week! Not Eeyore, of course. That would just be wrong.

Eeyore acted the same way when my son brought him back in for showmanship. He stood nice and calm until the last minute when the winner was announced (not my son), and then Eeyore decided he was tired and laid down. There was no way my son was going to prevent it, and my sisters have a good video and pictures of my son just smiling and laughing at him. We ended up bringing home Simon because he was still around 1000 pounds, not at market weight yet. At just over 1200 pounds, we sold Tank at the end of that fair, and both boys were sad to let him go. The little boy wanted to say goodbye. I have some great pictures of both boys hugging him before we walked him to the area to be taken away. My son had so much fun showing Eeyore that he decided to show him at the Four County Fair this week. By then, Eeyore had grown to 1410 pounds, and was the third largest steer there. (Yeah, nothing is going to go wrong with a 70 pound boy showing a steer 20 times his weight.)

Midstates planning committee seeks rural community success stories The Midstates Community and Economic Development planning committee is seeking examples of successful development efforts in towns and cities in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. The committee is looking for people to share their story of what their community did to revitalize and enhance the quality of life for individuals living in their town or city. The 2011 conference theme will be “The Power of Partnerships” and will focus on such topics as going green, organic businesses, creative financing, innovative youth involvement, leadership, and entrepreneurship. “If you know of a success story in your community, we want to hear from you,” said Iowa State University (ISU) Extension-Woodbury County Program Coordinator Adrienne Jansen. “In the event your story is selected, you will have the opportunity to inspire others by telling your success story at the eleventh annual Midstates Community and Economic Development Conference in South Sioux City, Nebraska.”

The 2011 conference will take place on Wednesday, March 30, at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City. Participating communities will enhance this one-day program which incorporates successful strategies and innovative ideas to advance community and rural development in the tristate area. If you have a story to tell, please submit a summary of your success story to the attention of Adrienne Jansen, Program Coordinator, Iowa State University Extension-Woodbury County, 4301 Sergeant Road #213, Sioux City, IA 51106 or jansena@iastate.edu. A form for submission may also be downloaded at www.extension.iastate.edu/woodbury. The deadline to submit stories is August 27. The Midstates Community and Economic Development planning committee is a joint partnership of fifteen agencies and organizations in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota.

Grant of $70,000 to help anhydrous ammonia facilities in Iowa comply with regulations EPA has awarded the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) a total of $70,000 to assist with outreach, education and implementation of the Clean Air Act’s Risk Management Program. All fertilizer facilities that handle, process or store more than 10,000 pounds of anhydrous ammonia are subject to EPA’s chemical safety requirements. “EPA wants to assure the continued safe handling of anhydrous ammonia which is a source of nitrogen fertilizer widely used for corn, milo and wheat,” said Karl Brooks, regional administrator. “This grant is designed to prevent releases and protect the health and safety of area residents, employees at the facilities, emergency responders and the environment.” IDALS is receiving this funding to conduct on-site audits, workshops and follow-up safety assessments at agricultural retail anhydrous ammonia facilities in Iowa. Anhydrous ammonia is generally safe provided handling, storage and maintenance procedures are fol-

lowed. However, it is toxic and can be a health hazard. Inhaling anhydrous ammonia can cause lung irritation and severe respiratory injuries. EPA Region 7 receives more accidental release reports for ammonia than for any other chemical. In addition to releases caused by transportation accidents, human error and equipment failure, a number of releases have been caused by anhydrous ammonia thefts. Anhydrous ammonia is a key ingredient in the illegal production of methamphetamine. When stolen, the toxic gas can be unintentionally released, causing injuries to emergency responders, law enforcement personnel, the public and the criminals themselves. Retailers were first required to be in compliance with the Risk Management Program in 1999. EPA then started facility inspections and enforcement of the program, which includes five components: hazard assessment system, management, accident prevention, emergency response and submittal of a risk management plan.

Now is the time to consider the conservation reserve Now’s the time to think about putting that wet area, steep side slope or other unproductive land into the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). “With a general sign-up coming soon , producers and landowners have time to do the math and figure out if those hard-to-farm areas are really paying off,” said John R Whitaker, State Executive Director of the Iowa Farm Service Agency. “Our agency has increased rental rates since the last general sign-up, making CRP a more attractive alternative. “When you pencil it out, sometimes the cost of planting and replanting, or high costs and low yields, means putting land in CRP is your best dollar return per acre – good farm management is finding the best return per acre,” Whitaker said. Take aim at those problem areas. Use precision CRP to address erodible areas, reduce the risk of being out of compliance on your conservation plan and increase average yields. “The important point is to plan now,” said Rich Sims, State Conservationist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service. “Although we don’t know the exact date of this sign up, we anticipate it to be this summer. It’s the first one since 2006 and the available acreage is limited. So producers and landowners who want to sign a CRP contract need to be ready to go when the sign up dates are announced.” The sign up is welcome news for both producers and landowners seeking to improve their cropland management. It’s also important to all people because they benefit from better water quality as the erosion and runoff is controlled. Both game and nongame wildlife benefit as cropland acres are converted to grassland or forest. “Selectively using CRP can work for the crop producer while providing cleaner water for all Iowans and quality habitat for wildlife,” said Richard Leopold, Director of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “CRP habitat is critical for species like ringnecked pheasant, especially following a winter like the last one,” he said. FSA and NRCS, along with DNR, suggest producers stop by the USDA service centers to talk to the experts about how to determine where fields should be subdivided to provide the most erosion control benefit and yet still be easy to farm. Staff from FSA, along with the NRCS and DNR, can help you find a CRP practice and planting mix that will increase your eligibility for the program and match your management goals for wildlife habitat and erosion control. Take Aim at erosion with Precision CRP. More information is available in county USDA service centers, and DNR wildlife and forestry offices. Or, check the news, USDA or DNR websites frequently for sign up announcements.

For this year's show, which will take place on its permanent biennial site near Boone from August 31 to September 2, several Iowa organizations have joined together to offer an International Visitors Center. The State of Iowa's Department of Economic Development, Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau, Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau and Boone Area Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau will sponsor an International Visitors Center located on lot #526, on the west side of the Wallaces Farmer Hospitality Tent. Entrance to the International Visitors Center will be located on Fifth Street. The International Visitors Center will offer international visitors a comfortable location to relax and have a snack, network and hold meet-

ings, with Internet access and phone service. Spanish, Portuguese and possibly other language assistance will be available. Information regarding the State of Iowa's agriculture and manufacturing as well as Ames, greater Des Moines area and Boone area visitors' guides, maps and local attraction information will be available. Groups wishing to preregister their members or those looking for additional information should contact the Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau at 800-288-7470 or register online at www.VisitCentralIowa.com. The Quality Inn and Suites Events Center in downtown Des Moines is the "official international headquarters hotel" for international show visitors. Quality Inn and Suites can be called at 515244-1700. Trans Iowa Charters will provide a transportation shuttle Tuesday through Thursday during the 2010 Farm Progress Show. Cost is $10 per per-

son each way or $20 round trip. Guests may board the shuttle at the International Headquarter Hotel, the Quality Inn and Suites Events Center, downtown Des Moines, three times per day. The shuttle will have four return trip departure times from the Farm Progress Show to the Quality Inn and Suites Events Center. The downtown Des Moines drop-off location is walking distance to many of the city's hotels, restaurants and attractions. Call Trans Iowa Charters at 800-310-6754 for Farm Progress Shuttle transportation reservations and full details. The 2010 Farm Progress Show is open to visitors 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, August 31 and September 1, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, September 2. For a full schedule of events and more detailed information, visit www.FarmProgressShow.com.

Register by August 25 for Iowa State tours during Farm Progress Show Iowa State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is offering three different tour bundles during the days of the Farm Progress Show. Each tour package was developed to focus on a different topic and will showcase a variety of departments and research farms. Tour bundles have been created around the topics of biomass, livestock and dairy, and horticulture and horse. The tours give people the opportunity to view research farms as well as areas of the Iowa State campus. Participants can see new research and elite facilities in multiple areas of agriculture. The tours cover everything from the cutting-edge BioCentury Research Farm to the historic ISU horse barns. “People that attend the tours will get a firsthand look at research in progress,” said Mark Honeyman, director of ISU Research Farms. “Many of the locations are where Iowa State students gain experience in their field of study.“ Each tour is offered twice a day August 30 through September 2. Tour times are 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Because the tours visit multiple sites, a coach bus with a tour guide is provided to lead participants.

Each tour costs $15 per person, with registration deadline August 25 at 5 p.m. The biomass tour includes visits to the BioCentury Research Farm and the ISU Ag Engineering and Agronomy Research Farms. The BioCentury Research Farm, located 10 miles west of Ames, has on-site plots of biomass crops and biorenewable processing facilities. The farm, which conducts research and addresses some of the most critical questions facing the biorenewables industry, includes a pilot plant where biomass is converted to bioenergy compounds. A grouping of farms with more than 1,200 acres of intensive plot research at the ISU Ag Engineering and Agronomy Research Farms is the last stop on the tour. The livestock and dairy tour includes visits to the Iowa State Dairy and Compost Facility and the Iowa State Animal Science Teaching Farms. The ISU Dairy farm is a state-of-the-art teaching, research and outreach facility. Visitors are able to see all aspects of new technologies and research that take milk from the cow to the table. Next door to the farm is Iowa State’s composting facility, which is operated as part of ISU’s LiveGreen! Initiative. The Animal Science Teaching Farms are used for classes

and demonstrations on swine, beef and cattle production. Due to health guidelines, international guests are required to be inside the United States for at least five days before participating on this tour. The horticulture and horse farm tour includes visits to the ISU Horse Barns, the ISU Horticulture Station and Reiman Gardens. The Quarter horses, Thoroughbreds and Paints housed at the tile horse barn, built in the 1920s, are all cared for by Iowa State students who learn general care, breeding, foaling, training and marketing of horses. The ISU Horticulture Station, located four miles north of Ames, is an active research station filled with acres of apple orchards, vineyards, fruit and vegetable plots and aquaculture ponds. The last stop in the tour bundle is Reiman Gardens, a top Iowa tourist attraction that includes a butterfly flight house, conservatory garden and learning center. To register for a tour or for more information contact Haley Cook, Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau at 515-956-4601 or haleyc@amescvb.com.

Goal of ISA trade mission is to expand market in China The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) is hosting a trade mission to China from August 5 through 15. Among those on the mission is ISA CEO Kirk Leeds, who has traveled to China five times in the past six years. The reason for so many trips is that China is the largest importer of U.S. soy, and ISA wants to continue to grow this expanding market. According to the ISA, in a relatively short amount of time, China has gone from a net exporter of soybeans to importing 60 percent of U.S. soy exports. It’s estimated that this developing country will purchase 700 million bushels of soybeans this year, one and one-half times Iowa’s total soybean production. A new experience for Leeds and the rest of the trade team this year will be a trip to the soybean production areas of China. The following excerpts have been taken, with permission, from the blog of Karen Simon, director of communications for the Iowa Soybean Association. August 6: After an early morning scramble to rearrange flights after delays made it clear our original schedule wouldn’t work, the trade team hit the ground today, safely, soundly and with all of our luggage. “We have two main goals for this mission,” said ISA CEO Kirk Leeds. ”One goal is to continue to build relationships with key customers in China. The second goal is to gain a better understanding of the capacity of China to grow corn and soybeans by touring the production regions in Northeast China. Even though I have been to China several times before, this will be my first opportunity to see first-hand some of China’s grain and oilseed production areas.” August 7: The ISA trade team learned more about the companies in China that purchase soybeans and just how great the demand is for soy in this country. Jeffery Xu, chief economist for Chinatex Corporation explained why they shifted their attention away from cotton and toward soybeans. “We saw people were wearing fewer clothes and eating more meat,” quipped Xu. And since Chinatex’s entrance into the soybean crushing business “there has been huge growth in the oilseeds and meal markets.” In fact, according to Xiaoping Zhang, deputy director of ASA-International Marketing, China’s soybean meal consumption has grown more than 3,000 percent since 1990. China’s population is not only growing, but it is becoming more urbanized. Many Chinese citizens are making more money and can afford to buy meat. Soon, for the first time, Zhang says, 50 percent of China’s population will be urban. China grows soybeans, so why have imports

grown so sharply in the past few years? According to Zhang, Chinese soybean farmers (approximately 60 percent of them) save their seed, which reduces yield capability. In addition, some multinational corporations are hesitant to bring their best technology here, fearing patent infringement. While researchers and the government are working to improve yields, it’s not happening fast enough to meet Chinese demand. Fortunately, U.S. farmers produce a plentiful, good quality, reliable source of soybeans, and trade between the United States and China is burgeoning. According to ASA-IM, the United States achieved another year of record high market share in China this year and there are still three months remaining in the fiscal year. For the first nine months of the 2009-2010 purchasing year, U.S. farmers provided 61.2 percent of the soybeans China imports. This compares to 51.3 percent market share in 2008-2009 and 36 percent in 2007-2008. This is why it is so crucial to both countries to develop and maintain good relationships. China remains a growing market with great potential for U.S. soybeans, meal and oil. And China needs a reliable source for good quality soybeans – and plenty of them. August 8: Because today was Sunday and businesses are closed in China, the trade team took the opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture, meanwhile learning more about those with whom they do business. The group first visited Tiananmen Square, the site of the famous protests, where millions queue up to see the grave of Chairman Mao, who, according to our tour guide, is regarded like a god to many Chinese people. The group then visited the Temple of Heaven. This complex of Taoist buildings in the southeastern part of central Beijing was visited by the emperors of the Mind and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies of prayer to heaven for good harvest. The temple complex, built in 1420, was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. Great Wall of China was the trade team’s final stop for the day. August 9: As generations of Americans become further removed from farms, concern about where their food comes from increases. A growing segment of the Chinese population shares this concern. Yesterday, I reported that soon, for the first time, the number of Chinese living in urban areas will equal that of those living in rural areas. Increasingly, China relies on imported food as the population grows and more people can afford to eat more protein. As the percent of imported food

grows, so does the concern about the quality of that food. That’s why companies like COFCO, China’s largest soybean processor, are interested in working with the Iowa Soybean Association and Ag Processing Inc. (AGP). The two organizations, paired with the Port of Gray’s Harbor, represent a direct link from the farmer to the Pacific Rim. Of particular interest is an expansion project AGP has undertaken at the Port of Gray’s Harbor. Beginning in 2012 the facility will have storage capabilities that will allow AGP to store whole soybeans and corn, as well as enable the cooperative to handle DDGs more efficiently. “We believe the expansion will allow us to become a major link and gateway to the Asian market,” said Calvin Meyer, group vice president of AGP. “The farmer owned system is very important to companies like China. COFCO is focused on quality from farm to table, which fits in well with AGP’s philosophy.” August 10: Today the trade team traveled north to the city of Harbin, which is located in the Heilongjiang province. According to USDA, this area of China produces 33 percent of the soybeans grown in this country. Tomorrow we’ll visit a large scale state-owned farm and see soybean production here, a first for an ISA-sponsored trade mission. It will be interesting to talk to Chinese farmers and learn more about soybean production here. Even more interesting, in my view, will be the interaction between farmers from Iowa and China. My guess is they’ll find they share many things in common, most importantly the critical task of feeding the world. Incidentally, one of our hosts pointed out yesterday that Iowa nearly produces an equal amount of soybeans to all of China. While Iowa’s soybean production averages 13.5 million metric tons, it’s estimated that China’s total soybean production is about 15 million metric tons, but has been as low as 12.5. Looking at the countryside from above as we flew from Beijing to Harbin, it’s easy to see why China needs partnerships like those with U.S. farmers to feed its people. We flew over mountains that covered a huge expanse of land as far as I could see, shortly followed by a huge desert. That being said, landing at Harbin looked very similar to Des Moines, where corn also can be seen from the airport runway.

Attention, Farmers and Truckers

BEANS USE ABUNDANT MOISTURE TO FILL PODS Continued from page 1 “If (crops) have good drainage, they look good,” he said. Saeugling suggested when scouting for SDS to differentiate plants that died from brown stem rot. The best way to do this, he continued, is to identify “browned-off, dying” areas in the field. Those plants affected by brown stem rot will exhibit dead tissue in the middle of the stem of the plant. For additional information, Saeugling suggested consulting a disease and pest guide. He also noted that beans in southern Iowa are not suffering the same challenges with white mold as those in northern Iowa. The majority of corn, with the exception of some early planted and early maturing varieties, is in the milk and dough stage, Saeugling said. Silage harvest will begin soon. He recommended that producers continue to scout for common leaf diseases but that he did not anticipate a lot of insect pressure and that root worm pressure was light. Holmes cautioned that too much rain in the near future could stimulate stalk rot and northern corn leaf blight, though treatments at this stage may not be cost effective. “Farmers need to watch for premature death and stalk rot,” Holmes advised. Licht stated, “If we get ideal growing conditions, that is, below average temperatures and average to below average rainfall, soybean yields would respond favorably…soil moisture is plentiful enough to bring the crop to maturity. If rainfall continues at the current pace and the temperatures remain in the upper 80s and 90s, the soybean crop will likely be depressed due to too much moisture combined with the higher temperatures.” Holmes countered that “even for the soybeans

warmer weather is favorable and not detrimental. “The upcoming harvest season will be on us in a month,” he added. “Corn really likes it hot and humid, even at night corn makes proteins.” For additional information on corn development he recommended viewing articles compiled and authored by Roger Elmore and Lori Abendroth located at www.agronext.iastate.edu/corn. Saeugling said he is anticipating yield variability due to saturated soil conditions throughout the growing season, though at this stage moisture is a bonus for beans that are filling their pods. “Heat and moisture are not going to harm either crop,” he said. Root system development is complete in corn, so a weather concern is high wind; and, of course, for either corn or soybeans at any time: hail. DeJong reported that some fields in west central Iowa were hit with high winds during the first weekend in August and experienced some lodging. He suggested keeping track of fields showing premature death. DeJong said researching why the plants died can equip producers to know what is going on and take preventative action for when the same crop is planted there in a couple of years. Two upcoming educational opportunities are available for agricultural producers: • The Iowa Learning Farm is sponsoring a field day on Wednesday, August 25, at the Western Research Farm from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. featuring the Conservation Station. For additional information contact Rich Pope at 712-644-2105. • A precision agriculture and corn management field day will be on Friday, August 20, in Newell from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For additional information contact Mark Licht at 712-792-2364 or Paul Kassel at 712-262-2264.

There is significan’t risk in trading futures.

Lean hog trade has been lower this week due to chart selling. The weekly net changes are $.42 lower on the October contract and December is down $.62. Cash trade has been steady in mixed trade this week. The cutout values declined sharply early this week with hams losing nearly $7 and bellies were down $4 on Tuesday; the carcass value has since recovered nearly one-third of its losses. The October futures are currently trading a $5 discount to cash so expected cash weakness ahead may already be priced-in, and seasonal tendencies suggest that cash values will continue to diminish over the next several weeks. August futures were pricing-in a mid $80s market at the beginning of the month but it did not occur, and August will go into settlement likely closer to $81. The chart picture remains negative with October below the 100-day now for 4 days. Chart support is down at 7165 which is the October 200-day and lowest major moving average. That would be an area to

establish some call position against earlier cash or futures sales, or an area to take some profit on hedges if you are a hedger that adjusts positions within your expected ranges.

CATTLE 8/12/10 Live cattle trade has been mixed to lower in slow trade this week due to light profit taking by market longs. The weekly net change after three days of trade is 15 lower on the October contract and the December contract is down 2. Cash trade developed at $95/$150 on Wednesday which was $1 to $2 higher versus the previous week and above some light cash trade earlier in the week. Choice finished 3 higher on Wednesday at $153.19 and select was down $.23 at $146.55. The boxed beef volume has been slow this week, which could indicate that the very light cutout strength is only tem-

porary and there are still concerns about retail demand. The dropping stock market this week is also a negative indication for demand. The October chart is still mixed to higher, but support is just below the current market at $94.72 to $95.02 which is where we find both the 10and 20-day moving averages. A close below this area would likely promote a test of the July low at $93.25. Hedgers call with questions and look to use this strength.

WHEAT 8/12/10

CORN 8/12/10

SOYBEANS 8/12/10

Wheat trade has been lower this week due to long liquidation and outside market pressure. The weekly net changes are 31 lower on the Chicago September contract, KC is down 10, and Minneapolis is 25 lower. The market should remain volatile near-term, but the USDA Supply and Demand report was not bullish enough to encourage a big rally. The USDA all wheat production number came in at 2.265 billion which was above the high side estimate. The new crop ending stocks came in at 952 million tons which was 10 million lower than the average trade guess and 141 million lower than last month. The new crop export estimate jumped by 200 million bushels to 1.2 billion. Global ending stocks were reduced to 174.76 million tons which was down 12 million from last month and is 19 million tons lower than last year. There continues to be global export rhetoric about further export bans, which should limit downside, but uncertainty remains the key word here and a world weather market is still in play. The weekly 2010-11 export sales report was above expectations at 1.33 million tons which was positive, but the market will likely need to see consistent proof of improved export sales in order to justify a retest or a move above the recent highs. On the weekly report, winter wheat harvest was listed as 87% complete versus 89% a year ago and the 93% 5year average. Spring wheat harvest was reported as 20% complete versus 7% a year ago and the 28% 5-year average. Spring wheat condition came in at 82% good to excellent which was unchanged versus last week. Hedgers call with questions. Expect very active and volatile trade day to day to continue.

Corn has been lower this week due to profit taking by market longs as position squaring ahead of the August USDA Supply and Demand report. The weekly net changes heading into Thursday (report day) are 10 lower on the September contract and December is down 9. The outside market influence has been negative the past several sessions; crude is $3.21 lower, the dollar is 200 higher, plus the DOW is down 268 points. The USDA report Thursday morning pegged the national average corn yield at 165 bushels per acre versus the 164.1 average trade guess; this was well within expectations. The harvested/planted acreage was unchanged. The crop size was at 13.365 billion bushels versus the 13.280 billion average trade guess. The new crop 2010-11 ending stocks came in at 1.312 billion bushels which was only 6 million more than the average trade guess. This was due to the old crop carryover coming in at 1.426 versus the 1.47 average trade guess and usage increases that offset the higher production on the balance sheet. Global ending stocks were down 2 million tons to 139.2 million metric tons. In the big picture, the demand scenario should limit downside and we should expect big end user buying interest in the $3.65-$3.90 area, but some crop uncertainty will remain. Although domestically we are not in a weather market rally, globally we are in a weather market rally which the marketplace is a little cloudy with, so mixed action may still be seen. The wheat market did post a reversal late last week which should limit buying if it continues to go through a liquidation phase. The outside market direction will also continue to direct trade. On the weekly crop progress and condition report Monday afternoon, corn silking was listed as 97% versus 87% a year ago and the 94% 5-year average. Corn Dough came in at 52% versus 23% a year ago and the 40% 5year average. Corn Dented was reported at 14% versus 5% a year ago and the 11% 5-year average. The crop ratings were unchanged at 71% good to excellent when the market was expecting a small decline. On the December chart, support is down at $4.07-8 and resistance is up at last week’s high at $4.38. The weekly export sales came in at 439,700 tons of old crop and 478,800 tons of new; combined they were at the low side of expectations. Hedgers call with questions.

Soybean trade has been lower this week due to profit taking by market longs and outside market pressure. The weekly net changes after three days of trade are 23 cents lower on the September contract and November beans were down 18. Meal is $8.10 lower and oil is up 24 points for the week. The USDA Supply and Demand report was neutral to negative versus expectations; this should have the market focused on the remaining August and September weather as the main item that could alter our crop size. On the weekly condition and progress report, soybean blooming was reported at 93% versus 85% a year ago and the 90% 5-year average. Soybeans setting pods was reported at 71% versus 52% a year ago and the 67% 5-year average. Soybean condition was unchanged at 66% good to excellent. The heat and areas of dryness this month gives a bias that ratings will come down next week and the USDA yield number seen today may have been raised a little early with this week and next very important for beans. The USDA increased the yield number to 44 bushels per acre on the report which was at the high side of expectations and nearly 2 bushels per acre greater than the average trade guess; this was the biggest surprise on the report. The crop size was 3.433 billion bushels which was 1 million greater than the high side estimate and 73 million greater than the average trade guess. Old crop carryover was at 160 million which was 15 lower than last month and 9 lower than the average trade guess. New crop carryover was unchanged from July at 360 million so usage increases were also a highlight along with the bigger yield-production estimates from the USDA. The world ending stocks were 3 million tons lower at 64.73; this is still a very comfortable historical number. The weekly sales were still good on old crop at 266,200 and new crop sales well exceeded expectations at 2.342 million metric tons. China purchased 1.76 million tons of the new crop and 65,000 tons of the old. China keeps buying; as long as the export demand is there prices should find support on any break. Meal sales were a combined 136k tons which was a little low and bean oil sales were below expectations at 1,900 tons. Hedgers call with questions.

World Champion Auctioneer sells cattle at Dunlap Livestock Kyle Shobe helps Schabens celebrate 60th anniversary by Gordon Wolf In only his second year of competing in the Livestock Marketing Association’s (LMA) World Livestock Auctioneer contest, Kyle Shobe of Lewistown, Montana, was named champion. But for Shobe, entering the contest was not so much about winning the title as it was about education. “The approach that I took is that the contests would make me a better auctioneer,” he stated. Shobe won the contest on June 19 at the Oklahoma National Stockyards in Oklahoma City. Now he will be traveling throughout the United States promoting the LMA, the auction method of marketing livestock and performing as guest auctioneer at livestock auctions. Shobe’s first guest appearance was on Friday, August 6, at the Dunlap Livestock Auction in Dunlap where he helped the Schaben family celebrate 60 years of owning and operating the livestock auction. James Schaben Sr. and wife Ruth bought the Dunlap market and began operating it in 1950. He has retired and the market is now operated and managed by the Schaben brothers – Jon, Jim Jr. and Jay. A third generation of the Schaben family is also involved in the business. Jon is the 2003 LMA World Champion Livestock Auctioneer. Dunlap Livestock Auction hosted the World Championship in 2002. The 60th anniversary also brought James Schaben Sr. out of retirement for a while as he auctioned cattle. Although only 27 years old, Shobe has more than two decades of auctioneering experience. He was only six years old when his parents, Jayson and Debby Shobe, owners of United Country Shobe Auction and Realty of Lewistown, allowed him to auction at a sale. Shobe Auction handles

farm and ranch equipment and real estate. Even at an earlier age, Shobe would practice auctioneering after sales were done. His first experience in auctioning livestock was in North Dakota at a purebred Charolais sale; he was 10 or 11 years old at the time. Shobe learned his trade from his father and past LMA World Champions. He would get videos of the world championship contests and study them. “For me, meeting a World Champion Auctioneer is like meeting a movie star,” Shobe stated. And even though he is now a World Champion like his idols, Shobe said meeting former champions will still be like meeting stars. Shobe is also a rodeo announcer for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and is lead singer and lead guitar player in his own band, “Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘em Boys.” Other band members include his brother Justin on drums and vocals, Jaxon Allen on bass guitar, and Jaxon’s brother Weston on rhythm, 12 string, and electric guitar. The band plays traditional country tunes and also performs some original works written by Shobe and band members. Shobe’s favorite original work is “This Side of the Radio,” a song about the media twisting the news to make it appear things are worse than they are. That was a message Shobe gave before singing the national anthem (his first time to do so) at the start of his turn on the auction block in Dunlap. “There is a lot to be thankful for,” he stated. Shobe said he could have competed in the World Auctioneer contest earlier than two years ago but wanted to make sure he was ready. Last year, his first time in the contest, Shobe was the runner-up overall and was named the Audrey K. Banks “Rookie of the Year.”

He said he was very surprised with the wins both years “especially the first year, making it to the top five, let alone the top three. “This year I drew yearly in the final round so I was able to watch all the other finalists. I picked four of them to be in the top,” he stated. He didn’t pick himself as a finalist, however. This year during his travels Shobe will see a lot of the United States and many different livestock auctions. He said each livestock auction is different but that the people all have the common link to the livestock industry. Shobe enjoyed his guest appearance at Dunlap Livestock Auction. “It is evident that the Schaben family has a lot invested in its business, not just financially but that they’ve put their hearts and souls into it,” he stated. “It is really evident that they care about their customers.” After his year as World Champion, Shobe will go back home to the family auction business and will remain active with LMA. World Champions are not allowed to compete again. “I didn’t get involved in LMA just for the contest,” he stated. “It comes back to education. LMA provides a lot of that and provides a lot of support to livestock auctions.”

FAC, AccuSteel work together on hoop building Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company (FAC) has teamed up with Accu-Steel of Templeton to construct the latest addition to the Arcadia facilities (Carroll County). A new 180 by 360 foot hoop building is being constructed in Arcadia at the cooperative, directly north of the current hoop building. “We decided to partner with Accu-Steel because of the trust we have in the company and the structures they build,” said FAC Operations Manager Darrell Henkenius. “We like the fact that they are a local company. They provide us with excellent service during and after construction which is an important factor when considering options.” FAC constructed its first Accu-Steel hoop building in 2002 in Arcadia. It was soon followed by another building in Schleswig (Crawford County). This is the third building project where the two companies have worked together. “The very first building we did with FAC, was important to our company because it helped to launch our flat storage buildings into a successful enterprise,” said Jason Owen, president of AccuSteel. “This third building is a culmination of the trust we have in each other, and the advancement of technology today.” Owens mentioned that the hoop building could withstand conveyor systems. FAC is also constructing a conveyor system that will be connected from the dryer on the white cement elevator over to the new hoop structures. This project is being constructed by the employees of FAC. Almost 3 million bushels of grain will be able to move faster due to the two projects. The cost of the two projects are estimated at $1.7 million dollars with plans to be completed by harvest time.

FAC has facilities in Arcadia, Westside, and Schleswig and grain facilities in Harlan and Denison. Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company provides services in grain, feed, agronomy, lumber, and Iowa SIPS. FAC employs approximately 70 employees through the 3 locations.

AccuSteel is located in Templeton. It serves the road salt storage arena, grain and fertilizer business, and the cattle industry. The company employs 25 employees and provide services nationwide and is breaking into the international business with a project in Mali, Africa.

New equipment dealer specializes in biomass harvest by Emma Struve After more than a decade in the custom harvest and baling business, the Woodford family sold their Minnesota farm and moved 100 miles south to open an equipment dealership in Emmetsburg, which will utilize their specific knowledge about biomass and cellulosic ethanol opportunities for farmers. Eric and Mary Woodford started their custom combining and corn stover harvesting business in 1996 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, serving farmers in seven counties in that state as well as three counties in South Dakota. Eric said he followed renewable fuels projects for several years and opportunities in cellulosic ethanol production are now emerging. Vermeer approached the Woodfords with a proposal to open an equipment dealership in Emmetsburg, in Palo Alto County, which would fulfill the agriculture equipment manufacturer’s need for an outlet in that area and provide a resource for farmers needing biomass harvesting equipment.

“We’re the first farm equipment dealership tailored for farmers harvesting biomass for cellulosic ethanol,” Eric stated. The Woodfords accept the offer, purchased a building in Emmetsburg, remodeled it and opened Woodford Equipment, Inc., July 8 with a grand opening celebration attended by family and friends as well as Senator Jack Kibbie. “The main focus here in Emmetsburg is second-pass, round baling,” Eric noted. “Instead of using the products, we’re selling them.” He made sure to note that they know the operations aspects, in addition to just the sales aspects, of the business including maintenance. Eric is also an inventor; he licensed a power wind guard to Vermeer. Woodford Equipment, Inc., offers bale movers, bale accumulators, automated bale trailers, loaders, a full line of Vermeer agriculture products including cob harvesters, and McCormick tractors.

Area farmers attend on-farm fish and wildlife habitat workshop From cleaner drinking water to healthier crops, conservation strategies that incorporate wildlife habitat and water monitoring into agricultural production are helping farmers protect Iowa’s water and land legacy. During a July 27 Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) workshop at the Smeltzer Trust-Iowa Learning Farm near Otho, more than 40 farmers and other participants learned the “hows and whys” of conservation strategies for working farms, in addition to meeting local specialists who can help with the process. “We’re putting the pieces of the puzzle together for farmers so they can access not only scientific data, but also the technical experts who can help them evaluate options for their farm and reach their conservation goals,” said Roger Wolf, ISA’s director of environmental programs. Denis Schulte, a district conservationist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service, noted that conservation is a long-term process requiring time and money, as well as customized solutions. Schulte urged farmers and landowners to match their goals with available state and federal programs. “I recommend contacting your local USDA service center to start the process,” Schulte said. “We can discuss your needs and talk about the specific issues of your land. Then we can point you in the right direction, from federal programs like the Wetlands Reserve Program and Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program, to state resources like the low-interest loan program.”

The benefits of incorporating “conservation corridors” into agricultural production can extend beyond improving water and soil quality, noted Keith Summerville, an associate dean and professor of environmental science at Drake University in Des Moines, whose students have worked closely with the ISA on various conservation projects for farmers. “Integrating these areas close together, rather than having them in isolation, will give you the biggest bang for your restoration buck,” Summerville said. Dragonflies that thrive in a small wetland area, for example, provide a free pest control service for crops in nearby fields because they consume many undesirable insects, including mosquitoes, deerflies, horseflies and more, Summerville said. “In addition, restored prairies or grassland areas with diverse plant species not only attract pollinators, but they can provide a major function with Bt resistance management when located near crop ground,” he added. He noted that plants with a stem diameter the size of the common milkweed’s stem provide a refuge where European corn borers can harbor without being exposed to Bt. Other speakers at the Otho field day conducted demonstrations and addressed numerous resources and organizations available to help landowners and farmers implement more conservation practices on working farms. Eileen Bader, freshwater specialist with The Nature Conservancy, and Chris Jones, laboratory supervisor for Des Moines Water Works,

demonstrated some basic water monitoring techniques and explained the benefits farmers gain from water monitoring. Tyler Bass, a Farm Bill Biologist from southern Iowa, explained that Reload Iowa is a statewide plan to help farmers establish and improve one million acres of wildlife habitat to increase pheasant and quail numbers. Joshua Gansen with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) told the group that wet areas, steep side slopes and other unproductive land are prime candidates for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), as well as other cost share plans. In addition, the ISA Environmental Programs staff explained that ISA’s Certified Environmental Management Systems for Agriculture (CEMSA) can assist farmers in designing a custom-fit action plan to profitably address environmental issues and concerns specific to their operation. After engaging with the various technical specialists, the farmers participated in a focus group session, providing input, questions and suggestions that will be used by ISA to develop future program offerings. This workshop was made possible by a grant to ISA from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and in-kind contributions by the Ann Smeltzer Trust-Iowa Learning Farm.

Crawford County family raises animals for game farms Daughter shows fawn at fair Buttercup and Babe were two of the earliest acquisitions and residents at the Mosier’s acreage south of Denison in Crawford County, purchased when they were just days old. Because they were bottle fed and hand reared, both mature does remain friendly. Van Mosier feeds them sliced apples as a treat. Photo by Emma Struve by Emma Struve The Mosier’s deer enterprise near Denison in Crawford County is multi-purpose: the family enjoys spending time with the animals, the offspring are sold for profit, and, for the first time this year, deer are a 4-H project. Three years ago Van and Wendy Mosier, with daughters Vandy, 11, and Billie, 10, purchased a pair of deer from a farm in Pella. The days old doe and buck were transported back to their Denison acreage in the backseat of the car, Billie recalled. Not long after, the Mosiers added another doe. In order to make them easy to handle, all the deer the Mosiers raise are hand reared and bottle fed. When selecting a deer to purchase, Van advised looking a size, color, and how interactive they are.

The motivation to start the first deer farm in Crawford County came, simply, from a love for the animals, said Van, an avid hunter and whitetail enthusiast. “There’s actually more money in deer than in cattle,” Van elaborated. “We sell them to game farms.” The Mosiers described how they raise the deer. Initially, the newborn deer stay with the doe for three days to get colostrum by nursing, Van said. When the fawns are removed from the does they are provided a warm place with towels for bedding and a roofed shelter. The deer are bottle fed for 12 weeks using sheep milk-replacer. Once weaned, the deer are started on a diet of grass or hay, depending on the season, grain, and pelleted feed, Vandy added.

In the winter, deer have access to the barn and grow a thicker coat to combat the colder temperatures. The mature does are bred with a buck or by using purchased semen. Recent additions to the farm include Ghost, a white buck, and Misty, a doe. “We had to get a baby deer, so we could show him (at the Crawford County Fair),” Vandy said. “Everyday we went in and played with him and petted him.” Vandy is a member of the Paradise Pioneers 4-H Club and showed deer as a 4-H project at the Crawford County Fair this year.

CRAWFORD COUNTY FAMILY RAISES ANIMALS FOR GAME FARMS Continued from page 1 The deer were shown in the pet show. Many requirements must be met to show and sell the deer, Van explained. Twice annually a veterinarian collects blood samples from the deer to test for chronic wasting disease (CWD) and tuberculosis (TB). CWD is a disease of the nervous system that can be transmitted to humans so is carefully monitored but has not been identified in Iowa, Van said; TB is a respiratory disease. The deer are also tagged for identification and tracking purposes. Billie noted that if you ever come across a tagged (farmed) deer in the wild, you should not shoot it. The Mosiers learned about regulations through the Iowa Whitetail Association and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land

Stewardship, which has a farmed cervidae (deer and elk) program. In Iowa, 157 cervidae farms participate in the CWD testing program. Vandy also did internet research and read books about deer farming to prepare for her 4-H presentation, which helped her learn about raising deer. Aside from regular disease testing, Van said the deer are hardy animals. The only other medication routinely provided is wormer. They are genetically no different from the wild whitetail deer seen throughout the rest of the state.

Vandy Mosier, who will be in sixth grade this fall, prepared a 4-H project about her deer this year and showed them at the Crawford County Fair in late July. This was the first year for deer to be part of the county’s fair. The Mosiers’ is also the first whitetail deer farm in the county. Vandy’s favorite part of raising deer is getting to play with and pet them, she said. Vandy is pictured with the Paradise Pioneers 4-H Club’s scrapbook; she is the club’s historian.

Compatible wildlife habitat and livestock grazing tour Iowa State University (ISU) Extension is sponsoring a tour on September 1 to view Creston-area examples of ways livestock pasture grazing can be used to enhance wildlife habitat. “We’ll travel the region by Iowa State vans to look at different systems where wildlife and grazing cattle can be compatible goals,” said Joe Sellers, ISU Extension livestock program specialist. The tour will meet at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, September 1, at the Natural Resources Conservation Services office, 904 E. Taylor Street, in Creston. Sellers is arranging transportation from Chariton to Creston; those interested should contact Sellers at 641-203-1270. The tour begins at the Bill Beaman farm near Clearfield with the viewing of cattle grazing management practices and efforts to increase quail populations through cultural practices and seeding plots. The next stop is the Dray Walter farm near Blockton that features a CRP flash grazing demonstration and a wildlife seeding project along with many other wildlife habitat improvement efforts. The last stop, the Grand River Wildlife unit near Kellerton, offers examples of grazing management practices implemented to increase prairie chicken populations, including burn management and grazing stocking rate studies on pastures. The tour is provided, at no cost, by the following sponsors: Practical Farmers of Iowa, Iowa Beef Center-Iowa State University Extension, South Central Iowa Area Partnership, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Services and Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Registrations are required to accommodate transportation and food. Register by contacting Neifert at 515-250-8802 or cneifert@hotmail.com; Sellers at 641-203-1270 or sellers@iastate.edu; or Paul Goldsmith at 641-782-4218 paul.goldsmith @ia.usda.gov.

Ghost is just one of nine known white, whitetail deer in Iowa. The Mosiers purchased him from a deer farm in Pella and will raise him, as they have others on the acreage south of Denison, for breeding. The offspring, hopefully also white, will be sold to game farms in other parts of the country. The Mosiers’ deer are tested for chronic wasting disease (CWD) and tuberculosis (TB), which makes them eligible for interstate export. Pictured, Billie Mosier, age 10, feeds Ghost one of three daily bottles. Fawns are weaned from the bottle at 12 weeks old. Photo by Emma Struve

New foods at the Iowa State Fair Several new foods and food stands are set to make their Fair debut during "Non Stop Fun" at the 2010 Iowa State Fair, August 12 through 22. Sweet, salty and kid-friendly foods alike join the list of nearly 200 food choices offered throughout the Fairgrounds. This year's Fair marks the debut of Fair Squares, the official treat of the Iowa State Fair. Each Fair Square has a tasty balance of sweet and crunchy with homemade marshmallow. The treats will be available for sale at the brightly colored Fair Square concession trailer located near the northwest corner of the Administration Building. The volunteer-staffed booth will be open while supplies last from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day. The treat is only $2 and all proceeds benefit the Blue Ribbon Foundation's efforts to improve the Fairgrounds. Four additional foods make their fair debut on-astick - chocolate-covered tiramisu, turtle mousse bar, strawberry cream bar and the Twinkie log (a frozen Twinkie dipped in white chocolate and rolled in cashews). These treats join more than 50 foods on-a-stick offered at the fair. In additional to these mobile morsels, the fair is also welcoming a new concession booth. The Chicken Coop, located just north of the Animal Learning Center, is the place to go for kid-friendly foods. Menu items are specially selected to please the younger fairgoer's palate and include Octodogs (hotdogs in the shape of an octopus), macaroni and cheese and juice boxes. Kids can even try a peanut butter and jelly sandwich shaped like a farm animal (no crust). The Iowa Pork Producers Association will also introduce their first new menu item since the 1999 pork chop on-a-stick. The ground pork slider will join the list of tasty entrées available at the Iowa Pork Tent. The mini pork burger features two ounces of fresh-grilled ground pork on a cocktail bun and can be ordered as part of a meal or a la carte.

GrabTec markets grapple/bucket combo GrabTec, located in Larchwood, Iowa, has announced the availability of its revolutionary new compact grapple/bucket combo for skid steer and compact wheel loaders. Model GS features a patent-pending “Reach and Pull” design, providing unmatched highcapacity material handling combined with the quality people expect in a Grabtec product. The patent-pending “Reach and Pull” motion of the grapple offers more than six feet of opening, powerful grabbing capability and precision material control. The specialized components are integrated into the compact grapple; they do not project into the work space or obstruct the view from the cab.

Many conventional grapples can achieve a wide opening or close the teeth all the way inside the bucket; few can do both, and none can do so with the power and precision of the Grabtec model GS grapple. Available at GrabTec dealers everywhere, model GS Grapple comes mated to a heavy duty 72-inch bucket. Also included in the combo package are the required hoses and flat faced connectors. A bolt on cutting edge is optional. For more information, including specifications, images and movies, visit the GrabTec Web site at www.GrabTec.com or call 888-8578952 or 712-477-2675.

August 27 deadline to file for conservation commissioner elections Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey encouraged Iowans interested in protecting the state’s soil and water resources to consider running to serve as a Soil and Water Conservation District Commissioner. Anyone interested in becoming a commissioner should contact their local Soil and Water Conservation District. Nomination papers must be filed by August 27. Each of Iowa's 100 Soil and Water Conservation Districts are managed by five volunteer commissioners who help their community meet their conservation priorities. Commissioners help oversee the distribution of federal, state and local conservation aid in their community. Each of the 100 Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) in Iowa (one in each county

and two in Pottawattamie) is composed of five commissioners and are the local legal subdivisions of state government responsible under state law for soil and water conservation work within their boundaries. Candidates are elected locally on a nonpartisan ballot during the general election. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provide assistance to the commissioners as they seek to address the natural resource issues that are most critical in their districts. More information can be found on the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship website at www.IowaAgriculture .gov and click on the “Conservation” link on the top of the page. www.iowafarmandranch.com • www.iowafarmandranch.com

Compatible cattle grazing and deer habitat pasture walk Evaluating pasture for compatible cattle grazing and deer habitat is the topic of a Wayne County pasture walk Friday, August 27. The walk starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Waters farm at 2837 25th Street, Lineville. “We’ll walk through the pasture and evaluate the pasture for deer friendly qualities and cattle grazing potential,” said Joe Sellers, Iowa State University Extension livestock program specialist. Helga Offenburger, Iowa Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist, will discuss factors that contribute to desirable deer habitat in this pasture and what producers can do to improve the habitat while using the pasture for grazing. Dave Waters will talk about his goals for deer habitat improvement while maintaining pastures for grazing. “There is a lot of potential for compatible cattle grazing and desirable wildlife habitat in the pastures in southern Iowa,” said Carl Neifert, livestock grazing consultant. “We hope to encourage more landowners and cattle graziers to adopt this win-win strategy of pasture management.” To reach the farm from Lineville, go 3.5 miles north on Highway 65, west on Edison one mile, then south on 25th Street 3/4 of a mile. The farm is on the west side of road. Light refreshments of cookies, pop and tea will be served following the pasture walk. For more information about the pasture walk, contact Neifert at 515-250-8802 or Sellers at 641-2031270. The pasture walk is sponsored by the Iowa Beef Center-Iowa State University, Practical Farmers of Iowa, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, South Central Iowa Area Partnership, Natural Resources Conservation Services, and Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture.

Iowa beef producers help fund beef sustainability study A pound of beef produced today has less of an environmental impact than it did in 1977, according to a new study presented at the 2010 Cattle Industry Summer Conference that took place during the last week in July in Denver. Assistant Professor Dr. Jude L. Capper, researcher from Washington State University, revealed that improvements in nutrition, management, growth rate and slaughter weights have significantly reduced the environmental impact of modern beef production and improved its sustainability. Iowa beef producers, through the beef checkoff program, provided funding for the research, along with Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Washington beef councils. “Our Council was asked to step up and help fund this needed research,” said Dan Cook, cattle producer from New Providence, and chair of the Iowa Beef Industry Council. “For beef farmers and ranchers in Iowa and across the nation, these findings help challenge the common misconception that historical methods of livestock production are more environmentally sustainable than modern beef production.” In 2007, there were 13 percent fewer animals slaughtered than in 1977 (33.8 million versus 38.7 million), but those animals produced 13 percent more beef (26.3 billion pounds versus 23.3

billion pounds). By producing more beef with fewer resources, Capper found that the total carbon footprint for beef production was reduced by 18 percent from 1977 to 2007. When compared to beef production in 1977, each pound of beef produced in modern systems used: • 10% less feed energy • 20% less feedstuffs • 30% less land • 14% less water • 9% less fossil fuel energy • 18% decrease in total carbon emissions (methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide) “As the global and national population increases, consumer demand for beef is going to continue to increase,” Capper said. “The vital role of improved productivity and efficiency in reducing environmental impact must be conveyed to government, retailers and consumers.” The study used a whole-system environmental model that integrated all resource inputs and waste outputs within the beef production system, from crop production to beef arriving at the slaughterhouse.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is inviting Iowans attending the Iowa State Fair to visit “Farmville” in the Agriculture Building. The new display is a joint effort between the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and six agriculture commodity groups. “Farmville” will provide fairgoers with resources and samples and includes a live stage to showcase the important role of agriculture in Iowa. The Iowa State Fair runs from August 12 to 22 at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines. Each day live on the “Farmville stage,” Northey will speak to fairgoers and answer questions at 9 a.m. At 11 a.m. visitors will be given the opportunity to play “Battle in the Barn” and the “Ask a Farmer” session will occur at 2 p.m. each day. The stage is located on the west side of the Agriculture building. In addition, many other aspects of agriculture will be featured on the stage throughout the fair, including topics such as water conservation, the Farm-to-School Program, and invasive pests such as Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Samples and information will also be available from Iowa Soybean Association, the Iowa Egg Council, Midwest Dairy Association, Iowa Turkey Federation, Iowa Pork Producers, and the Iowa Beef Industry Council, which are joining the Department in “Farmville.” In addition to participating in “Farmville,” the Department will also have a booth in the Varied Industries building that will educate Iowans about the Department and continue the tradition of weighing fairgoers on a scale certified by the Department’s Weights and Measures Bureau. Century Farms, those that have been in the same family for 100 years, and Heritage Farms, which have been owned by the same family for 150 years, will also be recognized at the State Fair again this year. The program for both Century and Heritage Farms will be on Tuesday, August 17 on the Budweiser stage, just south of the Grand Avenue entrance. The awards are sponsored by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the Iowa Farm Bureau. On Friday, August 20, the Department will recognize the winners of the 2008-2009 From the Farm to You Calendar drawing contest in the Agriculture Building. Kids from across the state submitted pictures for the calendar. Copies of the calendar will be available to fairgoers at the Department’s booth in the Varied Industries Building.

Green Plains Renewable Energy to implement corn oil extraction technology Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. announced in July that it will implement corn oil extraction technology at its ethanol plants. The company expects to complete the technology deployment by the end of the first quarter of 2011 and anticipates the project would enhance operating income by $15 million to $19 million per year. "Our objective is to continue to diversify our cash flows and to de-risk our overall platform," said Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer of Green Plains Renewable Energy. "This project allows us to realize additional income streams from value-added co-products. The production of 75 million to 90 million pounds of corn oil per year will generate substantial recurring free cash flows and excellent returns on invested capital." ICM, Inc. has been awarded turn-key instal-

lation contracts at five of the company's six plants. The expected total project cost for all plants is approximately $18 million. Green Plains has entered into a license agreement with GS CleanTech Corporation, a subsidiary of GreenShift Corporation, to utilize its patents and pending patents. Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:GPRE) is North America's fourth largest ethanol producer, operating a total of six ethanol plants in Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska and Tennessee with annual expected operating capacity totaling approximately 480 million gallons. Green Plains also markets and distributes ethanol for four third-party ethanol producers with annual expected operating capacity totaling approximately 360 million gallons.

“Peace Through Corn” to bring history alive for Iowa audiences Creating Great Places (CGP), a non-profit based in Coon Rapids, has received two grants that will allow the original play “Peace Through Corn” to be brought to audiences across the state. Written by Iowa playwright Cynthia Mercati, “Peace through Corn” brings alive the amazing, unprecedented relationship of Iowa farmer Roswell Garst and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. During a fearful time when the world was poised at the brink of nuclear disaster, Garst and Khrushchev forged a unique human bond based on their mutual fascination with agricultural progress and their shared love of a good laugh and a ferocious debate. This work was commissioned by CGP to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of “Khrushchev in Iowa” celebrated in 2009. It is based in part on real dialogue as reflected in the two men’s letters, memoirs, and historic press coverage. With support of the Humanities Iowa and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and also the Iowa Community Cultural Grant Program of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, eight performances of “Peace Through Corn” will be offered to cultural organizations throughout the state. For each performance, CGP will send professional actors, a presenter to provide historical context, and an original

song commissioned from Coon Rapids prizewinning songwriter, Chad Elliot. Interested groups have until September 6 to apply to CGP to host one of the eight performances. Meanwhile, a first command performance, sponsored by the US Russian Business Council of Washington, D.C. took place at Drake University on July 19. This was in honor of the visit of Senator Mikhail Margelov, head of the Russian Foreign Relations Committee, and his wife, Svetlana. Following the performance, the Margelovs had their pictures taken with Iowa actors John Earl Robinson and Richard Maynard, and said they were impressed with both the play and with Iowa’s extensive history of citizen diplomacy and Iowa-Russia exchanges. CGP is led by Rachel Garst, granddaughter of Roswell Garst and key organizer of the “Khrushchev in Iowa” 50th Anniversary Commemoration. CGP supports rural vitality through initiatives in the areas of environmental protection, rural arts, historic preservation, recreation, and diversity. See www.creatinggreatplaces.org for additional information on “Peace through Corn,” as well as numerous photos, film, historical documents, and citizen memories related to “Khrushchev in Iowa.”

Iowa Pork Iowa Learning Farms host field day at Western Research Farm Producers Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) will sponsor a midday field day focusing on residue management at the ISU Western Iowa Research Farm near Castana on Wednesday, August 25, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event is free and the public is invited to attend. Families are encouraged to attend and see the Iowa Learning Farm’s new Conservation Station mobile learning center. The field day will feature a variety of topics all centered around crop residue and its importance. Presentations include: a report on residue removal led by Research Farm superintendent Wayne Roush and ISU Extension field agronomist Mark Licht; information about Qualisoy™ soybeans; ISU Extension field agronomist Joel DeJong and Rich Pope will discuss corn roots using a soil root pit as a visual aid; ISU Agricultural and Biosystems engineer Mark Hanna will present planter options for different soil residues; and ISU Agricultural and Biosystems engineer Matt Helmers will offer steps to limit soil and nutrient losses. CCAs can earn two credits when they attend this field day. The ILF Conservation Station will be open as well. The Conservation Station is a new educational tool that is traveling the state to teach all Iowans about soil and water quality. Through demonstrations, pictures, computer

animations, displays, video and sound, people of all ages can learn why Iowa’s water and soils are precious and how they can help preserve and protect these natural resources. The station also has a rainfall simulator which illustrates the effects of rainfall on the land by collecting surface water runoff and subsurface drainage. The field day site is the ISU Western Research Farm, located 4.3 miles east of Castana on Monona County Highway E34, one-quarter mile east of the farm buildings. The Iowa Learning Farm is building a Culture of Conservation, encouraging adoption of residue management and conservation practices. Farmers, researchers and ILF staff are working together to identify and implement the best in-field management practices that increase water and soil quality while remaining profitable. Iowa Learning Farm is a partnership between the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa State University Extension, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Iowa Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Iowa Department of Natural Resources; in cooperation with Conservation Districts of Iowa and the Iowa Farm Bureau.

USDA announces extension to GIPSA comment period The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has responded to calls from Congress, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and other leading agriculture organizations to extend the comment period to the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration’s (GIPSA) proposed rule on livestock marketing. The proposed rule, announced June 18, suggests major changes to the way producers can market their cattle. The comment period will be extended until November 22, 2010 (an additional 90 days). “Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle were very clear about the critical need to extend the comment period to allow stakeholders to thoroughly analyze the potential impacts of the rule,” said Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall. “While it’s unfortunate USDA didn’t extend the comment period for a full 120 days as we requested, we’re pleased that stakeholders will have some additional time to further analyze this complex rule and its potential implications on the beef sector, which is the largest segment of the food and fiber industry. “On the surface, this rule has the potential to take the beef industry back 30 years by stifling the innovative efforts of U.S. cattle producers to add value and enhance the quality

VACUUM TANKS

and safety of their products for consumers in the United States and abroad,” Woodall continued. Steve Foglesong, president of NCBA and an Illinois cattle producer, sent a letter to GIPSA Administrator J. Dudley Butler in July to stress the need for additional time to thoroughly analyze the rule’s potential legal and economic impacts on U.S. cattle producers. In the letter, Foglesong referred to language used by USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack regarding the proposed rule. “The Secretary of Agriculture referred to this as one of the most sweeping reforms of the Packers and Stockyards Act,” stated Foglesong. “As such, it’s extremely important that we thoroughly understand the rule and both its intended, and unintended, consequences on the U.S. cattle community.” During a House Agriculture subcommittee hearing on livestock on July 20, Democrats and Republicans expressed to USDA that the scope of the proposed rule goes well beyond what Congress intended under the 2008 Farm Bill. NCBA also reiterated that fact in writing to USDA. For more information on the proposed rule and its potential impacts on cattle producers, visit www.beltwaybeef.com.

The Iowa Pork Producers Association is partnering with Iowa State University Extension and Phibro Animal Health to offer regulatory information for pork producers and allied industry representatives September 7. All interested individuals are invited to attend the conference from 1 to 4:30 p.m. September 7 at the Iowa State Center Scheman Building in Ames. Pre-registration is requested. For those unable to attend in Ames, the event will be broadcast online. Eldon McAfee, IPPA legal counsel with Beving, Swanson & Forrest, will discuss current regulations, nuisance cases as well as ongoing rule making and policy procedures affecting Iowa pork producers. Dr. Jay Harmon, professor with the Iowa State University Department of Ag & Biosystems Engineering, will update producers on current environmental research and assistance programs offered through Iowa State University. “Producers are constantly learning of new laws, regulations, and policy initiatives with little detail on how it affects them or what they need to do to comply,” said Tyler Bettin, IPPA producer education director. “We hope sessions like this will bring them up to speed on current issues and answer any questions they may have.” The conference is free for those who pre-register or $10 at the door. For more information or to pre-register, please contact the Iowa Pork Producers Association at 800-372-7675 or e-mail tbettin@iowapork.org.

ISU flooding Streets in an around Ames closed during historic flooding worst since 1993 by Jennifer Meyer and Kathy Hanson, Ames Tribune Across Ames and Story County Wednesday morning, August 11, dispatchers scrambled to direct emergency personnel by police squad car, ambulance and boat as record-breaking flood waters stranded motorists, forced residents to evacuate their homes and apartments, snarled traffic and hampered efforts to deal with medical emergencies. In Ames, police closed streets in low-lying areas along Skunk River and Squaw Creek, and sandbagging efforts were under way to protect homes and businesses. City and county emergency personnel responded to a steady stream of distress calls. A female driver on South Dayton Road south of U.S. Hwy 30 was pulled from her car as it floated in the current and was nearly submerged in floodwaters at about 9:15 a.m. A boat was sent to rescue children stranded in the waters near South Fifth Street and a male motorist with a three-month old infant called for help on South Duff. A female immobilized by multiple sclerosis was evacuated from a flooded neighborhood and taken to her to her daughter's home. City employees evacuated 30 stranded employees from Wal-Mart the morning of August 11. There were also reports of business owners along South Duff Avenue re-entering their businesses

to salvage what they could. Police were dealing with motorists removing barricades on some routes, adding to the complexity of dealing with changing crests and ebbs of water levels on a minute-by-minute basis. Scattered power outages were reported around the city, complicating Red Cross efforts to find shelter for affected residents. The Squaw Creek basin as far north as Hamilton and Webster Counties experienced rainfall in excess of three inches overnight August 10 to 11, while 3.67 inches fell in Ames. Meteorologist Jeff Johnson of the National Weather Service in Des Moines said the Skunk River and Des Moines River basins are flooding as far south and Southeast Polk County and Jasper County. Johnson stated on August 11 that the Squaw Creek watershed has gotten 10 inches of rain in the last week. "Some locations got between 10 to 15 inches all of it upstream of Ames," he stated. Traffic into and around Ames was cut off in all directions as major east-west and north-south arterials were closed. Neighborhoods affected by historic flood levels include homes on South Fifth Street, South Maple Avenue and the Meadowlane Mobile Home Park. Police started closing streets about 11 p.m. Tuesday night, August 10.

by James Pusey, Ames Tribune Iowa State University experienced its worst flooding since 1993 on Wednesday, August 11, said Bob Currie, assistant director of facilities. At 8:30 a.m. August 11, all of the Iowa State Center and ISU athletic complexes were surrounded by water, Currie said, and there was also flooding at the Lied Recreational Athletic Center, Veenker Memorial Golf Course, and the lower parts of University Village and Schilletter Village. "Most of those facilities are sandbagged, so we're preventing water from getting into them, but a couple of them do not have power so there is some compromise in pumping water out," Currie stated. As of August 11 it was too early to tell what the damage to the facilities might be. At 8:30 a.m. on August 11 the Lincoln Way water gauge recorded water levels at 18 feet. The water level on a normal summer day would be at two feet and nine feet is flooding on Veeneker. Note: Watch IowaFarmandRanch.com for updates on the flooding and its affects on farm land.

Sudden Death Syndrome appearing in soybean fields Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) is disease of major concern for soybean growers due to its ability to significantly reduce yields. “Depending on the soybean variety, it can cause slight to 100 percent yield loss, and it is one of the top four yield-robbing soybean diseases,” said David Wright, director of contract research and strategic initiatives for the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA.) Iowa State University Extension Field Agronomist Mark Licht said on August 6 that growers are starting to see signs of SDS in their fields this growing season. “We started seeing SDS show up in central and west central Iowa. Early in the week, it

was fairly mild and at the end of the week, we were seeing places in the field that were quite severely affected. We loss the yellowing [of the leaves] and went straight into dropping of the leaves and seeing the death that occurs from that.” The disease is spreading more than most expected; SDS has shown up in eastern and northern Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota. It’s developing in areas it has not been in the past, and Licht said weather is a major factor. “SDS is typically found when we have periods when it’s really wet, especially if it’s cool and wet shortly after planting. In Iowa, we have been really wet ever since that cool period we had in early May. For us to see it in the lower, wetter areas where we have compacted soils should be of no surprise because we have had conditions nearly perfect for SDS to show up.” Fungicides do not help with SDS so there’s not a lot growers can do this season. Licht

advised to think ahead to the next year by start scouting now. “It is good to take note of the areas in the field that are more severely affected, and take note of the soybean varieties that are planted out there and how they are responding—how tolerant or susceptible they are to the pathogen,” Licht stated. “Keeping an eye on these two things is good because when we start planting for the 2011 season, we’ll know we should target certain soybean varieties that are known to have a higher tolerance. Additionally, fields that are more severely affected can be planted a little later when the conditions for SDS infection are less risky.” Licht urged growers to watch their fields for SDS and then begin a dialogue with extension specialists and seed agronomists to get a plan in place for the next year.

Iowa Farm and Ranch

Corn management, precision ag featured at ISU field day near Newell August 20th Corn management and precision agriculture will be the focus of a field day at the Iowa State University Allee Research and Demonstration Farm near Newell on August 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ISU Extension field agronomists Mark Licht and Paul Kassel are coordinating the event, which will address pertinent issues of the current crop season as well as ongoing interest in emerging agricultural technologies. “Farmers are adopting precision agriculture fairly quickly right now,” Licht said. “In the adoption process they are asking about the difference in products for the difference in price, especially as guidance systems are coming into play.” Hultgren Implement of Storm Lake is sponsoring the field day along with ISU Extension and ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative partners Ag Partners, LLC, and FC Cooperative. A free lunch will be provided courtesy of the Buena Vista County Cattlemen. Morning topics will include a discussion of corn populations and planting dates led by ISU Extension corn specialist Roger Elmore, and corn diseases of the 2010 season led by ISU Extension plant pathologist Alison Robertson. Licht and Kassel will lead a session on soybean management, which will include talks on aphids and use of land rollers. After lunch, ISU Extension agricultural engineer Matt Darr will discuss guidance systems in precision agriculture technology and Holly Sandhoff, consultant with Hultgren Implement, will talk about benefits of using yield maps. The field day is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served starting at 9:45 a.m. The Allee Research Farm is located about 1.5 miles southwest of Newell on 640th Street, about one-half mile west of the intersection of 640th Street and 205th Street. For more information, contact Mark Licht, (712) 792-2364 or email lichtma@iastate.edu, or Paul Kassel, (712) 262-2264 or e-mail kassel@iastate.edu.

USA Today names Clay County Fair named one of “10 great places for blue-ribbon county fairs” The Clay County Fair was dubbed one of 10 great places for blue-ribbon county fairs in the Friday, August 6, edition of USA Today. The travel section story focused on 10 fairs that feature unique and historical aspects of the traditional county fair. The article featured commentary from authors Drake Hokanson and Carol Kratz who wrote the book, Purebred and Homegrown: America’s County Fairs. The authors speak of the Clay County Fair saying, “The display of machinery, seeds and equipment shows that farmers still run the show at this gathering in the corn and soybean country of northwest Iowa.” Co-author Kratz said, “Farm machinery isn’t part of most fairs anymore.” The article continues alluding to the fact that, “the fair also books surprisingly bigname musical performers.”

The “Wyatt” featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room with entertainment center, recessed entry, oversized kitchen island, deluxe appliance package, patio door and more.

The “Bonanza” features drywall throughout, washer & electric dryer, entertainment center w/ book shelves, stone fireplace w/ 50” flat screen television, kitchen island w/32” flat screen television

Lameness in dairy cattle top welfare concern by Emma Struve It is in a producer’s best interest, as well as an animal’s, to reduce the likelihood of welfare issues developing and to resolve them once they emerge. In the dairy industry, “lameness is really a very key welfare issue,” stated Dr. Jan K. Shearer, Iowa State University professor of veterinary diagnostics and Extension dairy team member. “ISU has made welfare an area of concern and has hired faculty addressing these issues,” he added. Shearer began his animal health and welfare career more than three decades ago in private practice in Ohio; he continued as an Extension veterinarian for the University of Florida for more than 20 years. When Shearer joined the ISU faculty in June of 2009 it was with the objective to continue to study and teach on issues of lameness and welfare. He explained, simply, that some of the health problems in the dairy industry stem from animals being in confinement on concrete, which he elaborated “is not a normal surface for dairy cows.” Lameness, it follows, then is “one of the most common health effects.” In a publication called “Nutritional and Animal Welfare Implications to Lameness” by Shearer he wrote, “the underlying causes of lameness are multi-factorial…there is little question that housing is a major contributor to the development of lameness disorders. “Anything that increases the incidence of lameness contributes to poor animal welfare,” he continued. To identify detriments to animal welfare, Shearer recommended asking three questions: “Is the animal functioning well (in other words, is it producing well)? Does the animal have pain or is it distressed? Is the animal able to express or perform natural behaviors?”

Lameness is one of the most costly diseases, Shearer said, as it reduces cow longevity, sale value, and productivity – both reproductive potential and milk production.

Dr. Jan K. Shearer joined the staff of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in June of 2009 as a Professor of Veterinary Diagnostics and Production Animal Medicine; he is also a member of the Iowa State University Extension Dairy Team specializing in dairy production medicine, lameness, and animal welfare. • Received his DVM from Ohio State University in 1975 and entered private dairy practice • Received a Master of Science degree in 1981 from Ohio State University after pursuing graduate studies in immunology and nutrition • Recipient of the 2003 USDA Secretary of Agriculture’s Honor Award for outstanding innovation in animal health • Served as a dairy extension veterinarian at the University of Florida from 1982 through May of 2009 • Currently the Chair of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners Animal Welfare Committee • Primary research interests at ISU are lameness of beef and dairy cattle as well as welfare of cattle

To illustrate the magnitude of the problem, he added, “If you go into the herd today…there are some studies that would suggest more than 20 percent (of cows) have an abnormal gait associated with some form of lameness.”

Through the Extension program in Florida, Shearer worked to develop a Master Hoof Care program working with herdsmen on farms teaching them hoof trimming and how to care for feet. Shearer noted that the industry in Iowa is quite different, but the need still exists for training about hoof trimming as it is one of the most critical lameness prevention and treatment strategies. He explained that trimming prevents abnormal hoof growth that can lead to lameness. “We try to recommend trimming strategies,” Shearer said. These include timing, particularly conditions that may occur around the time of calving, and methodology. Education also includes demonstrating the relationship between lameness and nutrition, Shearer added. Acidosis, a metabolic problem, can lead to laminitis, a mechanical foot problem. According to “Nutritional and Animal Welfare Implications to Lameness,” “Rumen disorders that result in acidosis are usually associated with the ingestion of large amounts of highly fermentable carbohydrate-rich feeds resulting in the excessive production and accumulation of lactic acid in the rumen.” The publication also noted the contribution of cleanliness to hoof health problems, “It is believed that manure slurry not only increases the susceptibility of heel horn to erosion, but also provides the ideal environment required to support the growth of organisms that actually break down and destroy the heel horn,” Shearer wrote. “Pain is important because an animal is unable to participate in normal, natural behavior,” Shearer insisted. “The losses are multiple.” In addition to dairy cattle, Shearer works with producers of beef cattle and cow-calf operations on issues of cow health (lameness) and welfare as well as feed yard set-up.

Soybean farmers urged to be on lookout for white mold While this season is progressing much more quickly than last year, one thing remains the same – lots of rain. Wet conditions may be ideal for an unwanted soybean disease – white mold, warned Daren Mueller, Iowa State University plant pathologist. White mold, also called Sclerotinia stem rot, typically starts to show up during the middle of the reproductive growth stages. Last year’s cool, wet weather led to the first major outbreak of white mold in almost a decade. While this year has been warmer, Mueller said there is still a risk of white mold developing. “Fields at a higher risk of getting white mold are those that had disease in previous years and are in high-yielding sites where the canopy closed early,” Mueller said. “Also, fields that have had plenty of soil moisture, high humidity and little airflow have increased chances of getting white mold.” What good would it be to identify white mold this late in the season? “In general, fungicides are not effective, therefore not recommended, after symptoms have developed,” Mueller said. “Fungicides are more effective if applied before disease gets established in a field. So, while little can be done to stop infection once the disease can be seen in the field, there still is some value in scouting.” First, locating “hot spots” of white mold may trigger management strategies to reduce the number of sclerotia for subsequent years. “If a particular field has ‘hot spots,’ you may want to consider burying the sclerotia that drop to the soil surface at the end of the season,” Mueller said. “Another way to reduce inoculum is to apply a biological control to kill the sclerotia.” Second, knowing what fields are prone to getting white mold may influence what cultivar you plant the next time that field is in soybeans. “Remember those sclerotia, the small, black survival structures, can survive more than two years in the soil,” Mueller said. Third, Mueller said, “You can take extra precautions to keep your combine clean of soybean stems and residue after harvesting fields with white mold. This will help prevent spreading the fungus to new fields.” All of these are reasons he encouraged farmers to be on the lookout for white mold in the coming weeks. David Wright, director of contract research and strategic initiatives for Iowa Soybean Association, agreed that managing white mold in soybeans is very challenging. “There are limited tools available to farmers to reduce yield loss to white mold,” Wright said. “Applications of spray products have had varying results. Soybean checkoff investments are targeting the development of genetic resistance to white mold. We anticipate the release of breeding lines with greatly improved resistance to white mold in the next one to two years.” Information courtesy of the Iowa Soybean Association.
