New technology provides precise field management, changing the terrain of agriculture by Greg Forbes In the ever-changing face of agriculture, technology constantly advances to adapt to the growing amount of acreage and crops planted each year. Today, precision agriculture has paved the way for more efficient production while promoting reduced environmental impact. Precision agriculture allows growers to accurately apply the correct amount of seeds, pesticides or fertilizer to different areas of the same field. “Precision agriculture both optimizes a production system while getting a high amount of yields through the least amount of input and limiting environmental impact,” said Amy Kaleita,

As farmers complete their fall tillage, like this farmer disking a field on the outskirts of a western Iowa community, they are planning for next year’s growing season. Farmers are also learning to adapt to the everchanging technology that is making them more efficient agricultural producers. Photo by Bruce A. Binning

an associate professor of agriculture and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University. “Yield mapping is a common practice, particularly in corn and soybean production, to track production trends in a field.” She added that precision agriculture also includes the variable application of fertilizer and variable irrigation. Through variable applications, resources may be used more effectively and efficiently to decrease the financial burden on the grower. Mark Hanna, professor of agriculture and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University, explained that current precision agriculture technologies used in some fields include turning

seeding on and off, monitoring which areas have already received application and controlling pesticide and fertilizer applications per section of a field. “Putting on the correct amount (of product) is something we all strive for because a little bit of something in some places can be too much,” he said. “From a fertilizer standpoint, applying the correct amount is a big issue.” Kaleita explained that the proper amount of application is vital to the environment as to decrease the potential complications of introducing too many nutrients to the environment.

Help America’s Farmers Grow Communities support local firefighters during Fire Prevention Month Rural communities have a fire death rate twice the national average, according to the U.S. Fire Administration and National Fire Protection Association. Firefighters in these communities are also often less likely to have the necessary firefighting equipment and training. To help combat these challenges, the Monsanto Fund is investing in rural fire departments and helping to keep farming communities safer through America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM. Grow Communities gives eligible farmers the chance to win a $2,500 donation for their favorite local nonprofit organization. Last year, the largest percentage of Grow Communities

funding was directed to local fire departments. The Monsanto Fund invested a total of $612,500 in 245 rural fire departments across the country. For the third consecutive year, Grow Communities is gearing up to distribute $2,500 donations in 1,271 eligible counties across the country. Now through November 30, farmers can apply online at www.growcommunities.com or call 1877-267-3332 to apply by phone. To date, more than $7 million has been invested in rural America through Grow Communities. New this year, community members can suggest a fire department or other nonprofit organization that is in need of funding on the Grow Communities

website. Farmers can review “planted ideas� and consider them in their application. To submit a nonprofit project idea that needs funding in a community, visit GrowCommunities.com by November 30. As a result of the worst drought in 50 years, more than 700 of the 1,271 Grow Communities counties have been declared natural disaster areas by the USDA. Winning farmers from these counties will have the opportunity to direct an additional $2,500 donation to a second nonprofit of their choosing to assist with community needs that have surfaced due to the drought. The Monsanto Fund will select one win-

Learning by growing Western Iowa agriculture students utilize test plots by Greg Forbes Agriculture/FFA students at Rock Valley High School and Sioux Center have the opportunity to participate in a handson method of learning. Both schools have test plots that challenge students to study the planting, growing and harvesting of crops by ditching the books. “Instead of looking and pictures and books, students get to go out and work in the field,” said Brian Oostenink, the agriculture studies teacher at Sioux Center High School. RVHS agricultural teacher and FFA advisor Micah Weber explained their 10-acre plot provides good training for students. “Students get hands on experience and it gives them a little taste of what actually goes into farming,” Weber said. Oostenink, whose students operate a 3.3 acre corn and soybean rotation plot, mentioned that students not only arrange the planting and harvesting of the crops but also monitor produce throughout the growing season. Students identify weeds and insects, look for leaf damage and test the pH and nutrient levels of the soil. They also experiment with

different seed varieties donated from nine local seed dealers. The Sioux Center FFA chapter assists students by establishing committees to seek local community members to assist with the planting and harvesting, oversee the test plots, ask for donations for seed and seek out local supports to volunteer equipment. Weber explained that RVHS’ 10-acre plot contains five acres of corn and soybean rotation, four acres of alfalfa and a greenhouse. Students plant, monitor crop growth and harvest. Weber stated that the variety on the test plot challenges students to identify the species and growing needs for several species. His students benefit from helpful supervision from local feed dealers. “They (feed dealers) do a great job of teaching and showing students how to do it but not actually doing it for them,” Weber said. All students in Weber’s agriculture classes are also involved in Rock Valley’s FFA program. Therefore, many choose to use their class work as volunteer hours. Aside from analyzing the crops and soil, students at RVHS use the plot learn about the incorporation of GPS technology into farming. “We use the test plot a lot in our GPS curriculum,” Weber said. “They have to mark the perimeter of the test plot area as well as monitor it.”

During the harvest season, students in his plant science class harvest the plot’s offerings. Weber explained that students with a stronger background enjoy taking a leadership opportunity. “What’s cool for me is that we have kids that grow up on the farm and can share what they do with the kids from the city. It allows them to connect with each other a little more,” Weber said. Parents, grandparents, brothers and uncles also assist with the planting and harvesting process. “Students do a lot of the harvesting but most of the time, we have grandpas, uncles and former FFA members that like to come out and help out,” Weber explained. Both Weber and Oostenink explained that the plot projects help students discover and strengthen their agricultural knowledge without having to spend countless hours behind a book. Students benefit from learning in an environment free of desks, artificial lighting and worksheets. “The part they like best about it is the hands-on element,” Weber said. “Kids would much rather get out and do work than sit in the classroom.” “Students get real experience and fresh air there (at the testplot),” Oostenink said. “And seeing them in an outdoor learning environment is my favorite part. They get to do a lot of things they couldn’t by sitting in a classroom.”

Record land price once again recorded in Sioux County by Greg Forbes Productive yields and high commodities have led to a new record high land sale in northwest Iowa. On Thursday, October 26, an 84-acre tract of land near Boyden in Sioux County sold for $21,900. The sale topped last year’s record of $20,000 an acre for a 74-acre parcel also in Sioux County. According to Todd Hatterman, of Vander Werff and Associates Inc., the parcel of land recorded an “extremely favorable” Corn Suitability Rating (CSR) of 84. The rating, along with the reputation of Sioux County land and the parcel’s production despite the drought, significantly raised the land’s interest and demand. “The farm has had excellent yields and high commodity prices over the years,” Hatterman stated. “It was also in a very strong market location and in a very good state of productivity with a great fertilization program.”

Hatterman explained that the price, while staggering, continued the trend of high land values seen at auctions throughout the summer. “The farming market has been strong, especially on the farmland,” he said and added that earlier in the year, Vander Werff and Associates Inc. auctioned a 240-acre parcel of land for $18,000 an acre. That particular tract was just one of many high priced parcels on the market this year. “We had a lot of land come on the market here. A lot more than usual.” The attention the Boyden tract received before auction, however, tipped Hatterman as to the potential of the sale. “We knew the price was going to be strong from all the phone calls we received from local farmers and investors,” Hatterman stated. “It was hard to know how high we were going to go, but it went well above our expectations.”

The auction began with many bidders and the price quickly jumped to push the record of $20,000. Even as the figure exceeded $21,000 per acre, four bidders remained. Once the dust settled at nearly $22,000, ownership of the tract remained in Sioux County. Hatterman said a local farmer purchased it but declined to release his name and was unsure of the farmer’s plans for the parcel. The record tract continued Sioux County’s growing reputation as a farmland powerhouse in the state of Iowa. Hatterman said the high land prices are not only due to prime farmland, but the county’s appreciation for the farming industry and quality land as well. “It seems like there is a lot of crop and livestock production in that area compared to the rest of the state,” Hatterman stated. “They exhibit a strong community value for excellent farmland.”

Factors beside income production affect land auctions by Gordon Wolf Concerning record prices paid at land auctions, Dr. Michael Duffy, professor of economics at Iowa State University and an Iowa State University Extension economist, pointed out that current income isn’t the only reason someone would purchase land. He listed appreciation in value, sentiment, security, location and pride among other factors. Dr. Duffy compiles the Iowa State University farmland value survey, which will be released on December 11 this year. The record land sale in Sioux County, and for that matter, other high-dollar land auctions, will have little impact on the results of the survey. “We need to remember that only 10 to 15 percent of sales are at auction,” said Dr. Duffy. “What we hear about are auction sales, especially when they are spectacular.” He added, “Will the big sale influence people’s perception? Probably, but I would hope they keep all factors in mind.” Two or more interested buyers at an auction can affect the sale price. Duffy commented, “There is a term, ‘buyer’s remorse’ that is used to describe situations where you bid against someone and then you win and ask yourself, ‘Did I really win?’ “You can look at income from the individual acre or the whole farm. Again, it will depend on why you want it and your point of view,” Dr. Duffy added. On the other end of the spectrum, Dr. Duffy said at some auctions land has been a “no sale” where a reservation price wasn’t met. “I think it was mostly that the price was too high,” he commented of those situations. “Lower quality land isn’t as attractive these days and at some of the prices asked.” A press release from the Iowa Farm Bureau stated that while the record sale in Sioux County is not typical, it is a reflection of optimism in the economic strength of farming in Iowa, according to Iowa Farm Bureau Economist David Miller. He said Iowa’s continued strong agricultural sector has provided a “buffer” which has helped much of the state keep a lower unemployment rate than the national average and provided financial sector vigor. The Farm Bureau release added that despite drought-squeezed yields in many parts of the state, the price of farmland may continue its climb because multi-generational farm families are working together, pooling their resources and betting on a strong future for the next generation. Miller stated, “Seven dollar corn, $15 soybeans and two percent or less 10-year interest rates, all work together to push up the value of Iowa farmland.” He added there is no indication that Iowa land has topped out. “We’re likely to see good farmland, and I’m talking about the $8,000 to $11,000 per acre range, go up another 5 to 7 percent in Iowa on a year-to-year basis,” said Miller.

Denison FFA team receives Silver emblem in national FFA contest Members of the Denison FFA Chapter were one of 39 teams participating in the National FFA Nursery/Landscape Career Development Event (CDE). The event was conducted in conjunction with the 85th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. The team, led by advisor Dana Weeda, was awarded a Silver emblem. Members also competed for individual awards with 148 other participants. Paige Janssen and Lexi Houston received Bronze emblems, and Timothy Riessen and Calvin Snitker received Silver emblems. The top 10 individuals and the national winning team members received cash awards to recognize their success in the event. The cash awards and the event are sponsored by Arysta LifeScience North

America, Kubota Tractor Corporation and STIHL Inc. as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Brehob Nursery in the Indianapolis area donated and loaned plant materials for the CDE. The National FFA Nursery Landscape CDE is a competitive event in which FFA members test their knowledge and skills in nursery practices and landscaping. Participants must complete a general knowledge exam testing horticultural principles including plant anatomy, production, marketing, turf, landscape design and maintenance. Each participant must also complete practicums involving a landscape estimating, plant propagation or potting, identification of plants, disorders and equipment. Each team competed on local and

Financial management insight Cost share money available available to Iowa Soybean to improve wildlife habitat Association members Iowa soybean growers will receive a helping hand with financial, estate and farm succession planning courtesy of a new service provided by the Iowa Soybean Association in partnership with Pivot Wealth Strategies of West Des Moines. Beginning in November, the nearly 11,000 members of the ISA can subscribe at no cost to a bi-monthly “Farm Wealth Update” enewsletter. The resource will provide timely expertise from a variety of financial experts on issues directly impacting farm profitability. “As tax and regulatory schemes become more complex, it’s increasingly important that farmers have access to the latest infor-

mation and a variety of opinions,” said ISA President Mark Jackson of Rose Hill. “Pivot Wealth Strategies serves many agricultural clients and its perspective will assist members in determining what options are best for their farms and families.” Chris Uglum, president of Pivot Wealth Strategies, stated as asset values continue to appreciate, looming changes in tax policy require special attention. Estate planning also takes on added importance given that the average age of the Iowa farmer is nearing 60. Iowa Soybean Association members can receive “Farm Wealth Update” at no charge by e-mailing Nancy Cunningham at ncunningham@iasoybeans.com.

The USDA’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) has been allocated special wildlife funds to spend in Iowa. EQIP-Wildlife helps landowners enhance, protect, and develop wildlife habitat on their property. “EQIP-Wildlife is a great program to help landowners improve habitat on their properties,” said Chad Hotlen, Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist. Contracts last between five and 10 years, depending on the practice. Eligible EQIPWildlife practices include brush management, native grass seeding, edge feathering, timber stand improvement, legume food plots, tree and shrub establishment, prescribed burning, and much more. The deadline for applications to be ranked is De-

cember 21, 2012. “Applying for EQIP-Wildlife is easy. First you work with your local wildlife specialist to plan the habitat practices that are right for you and the wildlife you wish to attract. Next you fill out an application. The wildlife specialist will make sure your application is ranked and will contact you if your application is funded,” stated Hotlen. Applications will be competitively ranked based on various factors and if an application ranks high enough, it will be eligible to receive cost-share. To sign up, go to the local USDA-NRCS office and for more information on EQIP-Wildlife or other programs available for wildlife habitat development call Hotlen at 712-792-1212 extension 118.

“There is a lot of interest in the advancing technology, not only in part of farmers but equipment producers and seed companies as well,” Kaleita said. She continued that one innovation may include the improvement of the ability to plant, harvest and monitor a variety of crops in the same field. “People are forward looking to a farm of the future idea,” she stated. “It would be great to have equipment that could nimbly traverse through fields and not only adequately plant an array of crops, but monitor them as well.” While some current technologies provide the ability for remote operations, Kaleita said she believes that remote operation has a high ceiling for growth and opportunities. “Remote operation does happen to some degree and some people are doing interesting research in those areas. The technology for totally remote operations is certainly on the horizon,” she said. Hanna said he could see the incorporation of advanced weather monitoring into precision agriculture, specifically on spray equipment. “One aspect of focus on the future could be moving into a system to see on-board weather systems that monitor wind rate and direction,” said Hanna and added that the systems would be much more reliable and accurate than looking at the weather records of past seasons. Although precision agriculture technology is constantly changing in the United States, farmers in underdeveloped countries have used precision agriculture

TECH, from Page 1A “Precision agriculture supports limiting application of nutrients to areas where the likelihood of a nutrient use by a plant is higher,” she said. “What’s not used by a plant may become potential problems in the plants.” Aside from yield mapping, one of the oldest forms of precision agriculture is self-steering, GPS guided equipment. Hanna explained that like the satelliteaided machinery, other precision practices are being taken with a grain of salt. “With new technology, there is always a learning curve,” he said. “There are some things to become acquainted with that farmers may need to allow a few extra minutes and not get too frustrated. Growers have to develop the right attitude and temperament but the industry is also striving towards reliability.” However, he explained that farmers will take advantage of the ability to electronically manage a farm operation. Electronic record keeping and management will provide easier monitoring of larger land tracts. “When farmers get these larger land bases, they can keep track of what’s been used and where, and using software and electronics to do record keeping,” he stated. As growers become more acquainted with the advancement of precision agriculture, they hope to see more developments to increase the efficiency, effectiveness and carefulness of their production.

methods without the help of advanced technologies. Kaleita mentioned that those countries have success with their methods on their personal farms but the lack of timely and technological means prevents mass production. She said plans are under development to bring efficient and affordable technologies and services to those countries while allowing farmers to keep their precision practices. Both Kaleita and Hanna explained that while precision farming still has room to grow in its development and may be an area of hesitation for crop growers, its potential will benefit the agricultural industry and the environment. “Precision farming provides us a tool to get a lot more information about our fields and keep track of it in a more orderly form,” Hanna stated. “The opportunity to optimize production systems and minimize environmental impact is exciting,” Kaleita said. “Precision agriculture is one way to weave the elements of increased production and environmental care together in a very sensible way.”

Participate in a precision agriculture webinar presented by Amy Kaleita Amy Kaleita, an associate professor of agriculture and biosystems technology, will present a webinar on her research in the area of information technology for precision conservation. Her research includes the design of sensing and monitoring systems and how to use the data in decision support systems. She will offer an overview of the revolutionary technologies and the needs of precision agriculture. To connect to the webinar, visit https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/ilf/ . Kaleita will also answer questions via the Adobe Connect chat box. All that is required to participate is a computer with internet access.

More corn-on-corn possible in next year’s crop by Gordon Wolf Except for a field of corn here or there, the 2012 harvest is complete and farmers are busy preparing for next year’s growing season. Joel DeJong, Iowa State University Extension field agronomist who serves counties in northwest Iowa continued that most producers have worked at their game plan for fertilization. “That is key,” he stated. DeJong said consideration of what hybrids to select is still in progress. “We don't have much soil moisture, so the question that is tough to answer is how much emphasis you put on hybrid performance this year, when, hopefully, we won't have all of that stress next year,” he explained. Iowa State University Extension field agronomist Aaron Saeugling, who serves counties in

southwest Iowa, anticipates seeing corn-on-corn in several areas next year based on the fall ammonia being applied to corn stubble fields. “Fall fertilizer applications have begun. I see corn fields being worked,” he stated. DeJong is observing more fall tillage than he anticipated. “I thought maybe they (farmers) were going to do less this fall, but in the last couple of weeks I have observed more fields with some ripping, or disking. I think the extended time period of good weather was just too much to take for some,” he commented. Similarly, Saeugling has seen no lack of fall tillage in the counties he serves in southwest Iowa. Despite some rainfall, topsoil and subsoil moisture levels are still very short. According to the National Agriculture Service

Statistics (NASS) report issued November 5, topsoil moisture in northwest Iowa was listed at 49 percent very short, 35 percent short, 15 percent adequate and zero percent surplus. Subsoil moisture was listed at 77 percent very short, 18 percent short, five percent adequate and zero percent surplus. Topsoil for west central Iowa was 36 percent very short, 46 percent short, 18 percent adequate and zero percent surplus while subsoil moisture was 74 percent very short, 24 percent short, 11 percent adequate and zero percent surplus. Numbers were a little better in southwest Iowa with topsoil moisture at 22 percent very short, 36 percent short, 42 percent adequate and zero percent surplus, and subsoil moisture at 61 percent very short, 29 percent short, 10 percent adequate and zero percent surplus.

Online nitrogen rate calculator helps determine fertilizer needs Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship highlighted the Corn Nitrogen Rate Calculator available to help farmers find the maximum return to nitrogen fertilizer applications and the most profitable application rate. The calculator can be found at http://extension. agron.iastate.edu/soilfertility/nrate.aspx. The online tool is rapidly updated to allow for changing hybrid genetics, rotations and climatic conditions. The Iowa database in the calculator was updated in 2012 with 2011 response data and now contains 214 trials for corn following soybean and 111 trials for corn following corn. “Having adequate nitrogen available is critical for corn production, but given the high prices for fertilizer, it is important farmers determine the right amount

that is needed on their crops,� said Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. The calculator can be used for both corn and soybean rotations and corn-on-corn operations. It allows farmers to compare up to five price ratios – pricing options for nitrogen and corn. Farmers can reach out to their local

fertilizer suppliers to find current fertilizer prices The calculator then lets farmers determine the optimal rate of application based on up to four different corn prices. Nitrogen rates determined by the calculator are the total fertilization amounts for each rotation.

Iowa FACE programs warns of tractor runover risk Two fatalities that occurred in Iowa this fall have prompted a University of Iowa College of Public Health program to issue a hazard alert warning farmers and tractor operators about the risk of being run over when starting tractors from a standing position on the ground. The Iowa Fatality Assessment Control and Evaluation (Iowa FACE) program is gathering information regarding fatal workplace injuries that occurred near Spencer in September and near Columbus Junction in October. Both incidents involved operators who started tractors while standing beside the tractor. Both tractors were in gear when the engine was started, and lurched into motion, running over the operators. "We have noted two fatal injuries that occurred in a

five-week period, both resulting from the same dangerous practice," said John Lundell, deputy director of the Injury Prevention Research Center in the UI College of Public Health. "Farmers and other operators are at risk of being run over when they stand beside a tractor and start it, not realizing the tractor was left in gear. There is no way they can get out of the way fast enough when that tractor jolts into motion." Risks for tractor runovers may be higher during harvest activities, when older or smaller tractors are put to use to power augers or grain-moving equipment, but fatalities have also occurred when operators or mechanics were doing maintenance on tractors, or operating equipment that needed starter or ignition repairs.

risks associated with tractor runovers, the Iowa FACE program reminds operators to start the tractor only while sitting in the operator seat, with the tractor in park or neutral, and the parking break set. The power take-off and clutch should be disengaged. Safety interlock features - which are present in newer model tractors and prevent the tractor from starting unless these conditions are met should not be disabled or disconnected. Tractors should not be “bypass started,� a term that refers to jump-starting or shorting across the starter terminals. The Iowa FACE program is conducted by the Injury Prevention Research Center at the University of Iowa in conjunction with the Iowa Department of Public Health and its Office of the State Medical Examiner.

Partnership building key emphasis for new Iowa NRCS State Conservationist State Conservationist Jay T. Mar, who joined the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Iowa this October, brings a strong belief in partnership building and a deep dedication to serving people. Mar, who also had the top NRCS conservation job in Connecticut, is a native of Minot, North Dakota. He grew up on farms in the White Earth Valley and Red River Valley. He began his conservation career planting trees for the Ward County Soil Conservation District in North Dakota, where he also served as a soil conservationist and district conservationist. During his 30-year career, Mar also worked for NRCS in Wyoming and Delaware. In addition, he enjoyed the opportunity to serve on a USDA Conservation Technology Exchange Team in Denmark. “I am excited to work and partner with the many great people and organizations in Iowa who care about conservation,” said Mar. “Getting more conservation on the ground and delivering the Farm Bill to our customers will be top priorities for me.” He graduated from North Dakota State University where he earned bachelor of science degrees in rangebotany and wildlife-zoology. Mar is married to his high school sweetheart, Linda. They have three grown sons: Aaron, a teacher in Guatemala; Nathan, a nuclear engineer in Minnesota; and Ryan, a NRCS Range Conservationist in Wyoming. The Mars enjoy fishing, hunting, camping, and family time.

Jay T. Mar is the new Iowa NRCS State Conservationist.

Elections and colleges This is not a political column. I’ve had enough of “politics” to last me at least two years, maybe four. A majority of citizens have decided they wanted four more years with our current president. I knew that whoever won, approximately half of the voters were going to be in a “what the heck happened” daze today. I blame the way elections are run in this country. Too much money was spent on negative advertising and trying to get people NOT to vote for the other guy or lady. Too little money was spent on what candidates intended to do if and when they were elected. Some of the state and local races were also particularly brutal, mostly positioning “us” against “them” in a seesaw of political discourse. It’s not just the politicians either, as I’ve noticed some interesting comments on social media.

One small comment can elicit an avalanche of comments from the left, right, and center. Perhaps this is because the average citizen doesn’t believe that they have a voice anymore. We hear about the power the political action committees wield in Washington, and are suspicious of every vote that our elected officials make. Are they voting for what is best for the country, our state, and our citizens? Or, are they voting for whomever will give them bigger donations so they will be able to pump out the negative advertising so they can get re-elected in two, four, or six more years? Sometimes, I can’t see the difference. The national media doesn’t help either. Where has the fair and balanced reporting gone? We all know that certain stations and newspapers lean to the left or the right in their

news coverage, which is sad. When people watch their one favorite network or read their one favorite newspaper, they get onesided news today. That adds to the blood sport of political discourse throughout the country. No one seems to be able to look at both sides of the issues anymore. Email, too, has been a game changer. Issues that should have been put to death long ago keep getting dusted off, re-invented, and sent out through email by the political fear mongers. (Remember the Internet tax from a few years back? That’s still making the rounds even though it was defeated.) People were again concerned that one person would win the popular vote but not the electoral vote. When our nation was founded, the electoral college made sense logistically. Imagine the lag time be-

THE

FARMER’S WIFE By Christy Welch tween counting all of the votes, tabulating them, rechecking, and finally coming out with a popular vote winner, all without computers, telephones and calculators. Citizens might not find out that the properly elected president was not the popular vote winner until half way through

his first year in office. Today, we can get the voting information much faster and easier with the help of modern technology. And with the way that our nation has grown, some states possess an amazing amount of power because of the number of electoral votes they get. In Iowa, all six of our “votes” go to the winner of the popular vote. So those who vote for the “other” candidate feel as though their vote didn’t matter in the end. No wonder voter turnout tends to be lower than expected. We have a lot of disheartened voters and citizens because of the election process. Some changes might be in order, but the people who were originally elected with this messed up system would need to push them through, which is unlikely. After all, it’s worked for the current members of congress and presidents until now.

It’s an age-old problem in agriculture: ground-engaging tools – disks, coulters and wavy blades that penetrate soil and cut crop residues – eventually go dull. Until now, there was no way to realistically sharpen a wavy-bladed implement with dull blades. "It is with great excitement that Case IH announces the Robo-Sharpener™," says Rob Zemenchik, Sales and Marketing Manager, Case IH Tillage Products. “It’s the world’s first manually supervised ‘field-service robot’ for sharpening wavy or regular tillage blades on the Case IH TrueTandem 330 Turbo.”

Open house to focus on benefits of modern livestock buildings

Iowa biodiesel production remained strong in third quarter The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) announced that biodiesel production remained strong during the third quarter of 2012. According to figures released by the Iowa Department of Revenue (DOR), 10 Iowa biodiesel plants claimed tax credits on more than 44.2 million gallons of production from July through September. One or more of the production facilities have reached the tax credit program cap, therefore actual Iowa biodiesel production was higher than the number submitted for credits.* In 2011, the Iowa Legislature enacted a short-term, modest biodiesel production tax credit to help Iowa’s biodiesel community compete against states that provide large biodiesel incentives. The Iowa program went into effect on January 1, 2012. “While fourth quarter demand appears to be down somewhat, Iowa produced more than 150 million gallons of biodiesel

PAGE 7B

Event November 15 near Essex

during the first three quarters of 2012 and is on target to break the biodiesel production record of 169 million gallons set in 2011,” said IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “That is great news for Iowa jobs and farm income. It is also good news for Iowa livestock producers because biodiesel production increases the value of their animals while reducing their feed costs.” Biodiesel is produced in Iowa from soybean oil, animal fats, and other feedstocks. By creating more demand for soybean oil, biodiesel lowers the cost of soybean meal which is also produced when soybeans are crushed. In addition, the value of animal fats has increased with biodiesel production, thereby adding value to cattle, hogs, and poultry raised in Iowa. * IRFA conducts an annual survey of Iowa biodiesel production and will release full production results at the end of the year.

Farmers interested in learning about the benefits of raising cattle under roof are invited to attend an open house at the David Rydberg farm from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, November 15. The Rydberg farm is located at 1448 I Ave, Essex. The event is open to the public and a complimentary lunch will be provided. Those unable to attend the open house are invited by Rydberg to stop by anytime the afternoon of November 15. The event is sponsored by the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF), Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Summit Livestock Facilities and the Page County Cattlemen. The open house will highlight how modern livestock buildings enhance animal care and safeguard the environment while showcasing the economic development new livestock farms create. For example, the Rydberg’s open house will feature a new deep-bedded monoslope cattle barn that provides the cattle with shade in the summer and protection from the cold in the winter. The Rydberg family will offer tours of the new facility, explain how livestock is raised and demonstrate the latest technology used in cattle feeding.

“This is a perfect opportunity for farmers to see the benefits of raising cattle under roof and talk directly to farmers who are using it successfully,” said Brian Waddingham, CSIF executive director. “It’s also a great opportunity for neighbors and community members to learn more about the benefits of livestock to their community and get their questions answered right from the farmer.” Experts from CSIF will also be available to provide insight into interpreting rules and regulations impacting animal agriculture, enhancing relationships with neighbors and choosing good locations for new barns and feedlots. CSIF assistance is available to farm families at no charge. CSIF is a non-profit organization that assists livestock farmers who want help interpreting rules and regulations, guidance on good site locations for barns, counsel on enhancing neighbor relations and tips on how to protect the environment at no cost. It is a collaborative effort involving the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Soybean Association, Iowa Turkey Federation and the Midwest Dairy Association.

Soybean profitability summits set for November 15 in Cedar Falls, Ames Improving the profitability of Iowa soybean farmers will be the focus of two summits on Thursday, November 15, in Cedar Falls and Ames. “Soybean Profitability in a Global Marketplace,� sponsored by Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) and Rabo AgriFinance, will feature expert analysis of international soybean demand and supply trends and their impact on domestic prices and soybean grower profitability. “Nearly 60 percent of U.S. soybean production is exported to China, South America, Mexico and a host of other countries and markets,� said ISA President Mark Jackson of Rose Hill. “Obtaining a greater understanding of what’s taking place in these key markets is critical to the current and future success of Iowa’s soybean farmers.� The Cedar Falls summit will run from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 7212 Nordic Drive. The Ames session will be at the Holiday Inn, 2609 Uni-

versity Boulevard, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend and a meal will be provided. Keynote speakers include Sterling Liddell, vice president for Rabo AgriFinance and Rabobank International, and Renault Quach, director and assistant general manager of Dongling Grain and Oil Co., Ltd. China. Liddell analyzes the grain and oilseed sectors for the Rabobank Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory (FAR) group and coordinates the research efforts for Rabo AgriFinance in the North Americas. Quach has more than 20 years experience of commodity trading in China including importing and exporting ag commodities and distributing ingredients used for livestock feed. Reservations can be made by contacting Wanda Lester, Rabo AgriFinance, 319-575-5468 or wanda.lester@raboag.com. The summits are funded in part by the soybean checkoff.

Special projects US Farm Lease, LC help increase Iowa offers Hamilton wetland acres in 2012 County land to Four special projects in western and central Iowa helped increase the number of Iowa acres restored to wetlands through the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) in 2012. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) agreed to purchase conservation easements valued at $21 million through 53 contracts covering 4,814 acres – a 14 percent acre increase over 2011. WRP is a voluntary program offering landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance wetlands on their property. The NRCS provides technical and financial support to help landowners with their wetland restoration efforts. Following is an overview of the four special WRP projects in 2012: Wetland Restoration Assistance for Missouri River Floodplain farmers NRCS purchased conservation easements through five contracts covering 730 acres following the 2011 floods along the Missouri River floodplain. The Nature Conservancy sponsored this special project, covering a five state region. North Raccoon Watershed - NRCS purchased eight easements covering nearly 700 acres in the watershed, located in north central Iowa. Wetlands were restored to help improve water quality and provide wildlife habitat. South Raccoon Watershed - NRCS

purchased one easement on 155 acres to provide wildlife habitat. The watershed covers an area running from northwest of Carroll to southeast of Stuart in west central Iowa. Northern Plains Migratory Bird Habitat Initiative - NRCS purchased seven easements covering 471 acres in Iowa’s Prairie Pothole Region, located in the north central part of the state, which provide habitat for migratory birds. Wetlands provide habitat for wildlife, including threatened and endangered species. They also improve water quality by filtering sediments and chemicals, reduce flooding, recharge groundwater, protect biological diversity, and provide opportunities for educational, scientific, and recreational activities. Monica Monk, easement programs coordinator for NRCS in Iowa, said cropland areas that are often wet and/or prone to flooding make prime candidates for wetland restoration. “We also get a lot of farmers who need to replace deteriorated tile and decide it’s best to enroll that land in a conservation program like WRP,” she stated. To find out more about WRP eligibility and enrollment options, visit the local USDA Service Center or go online to www.ia.nrcs.usda.gov/programs/WRP.h tml.

able for lease as part of our leasing program. We would love to assist any other owners who have similar concerns and want to make their land available to a beginning farmer,” said Jeff Winslow of US Farm Lease. “We are certain we will find a good tenant that will be a good producer and provide the owner a competitive rent. Smaller operators can compete with the larger farmers if given a chance. We applaud the Ploegstra’s for giving it a try. The hard part will be deciding which applicant to choose since we assume we will have numerous applications.” The lease will be based on US Farm Lease’s FAIR Lease and will be for two years with the possibility for extensions. Those who qualify as a beginning farmer and would like to submit a proposal should visit US Farm Lease’s website at www.usfarmlease.com or call 877-232-4002.

WIPCO presents donations to Monona County and Crawford County fair associations A guiding principle of rural electric cooperatives is “Commitment to Community.” One way Western Iowa Power Cooperative (WIPCO) demonstrates that commitment is by supporting programs that educate and encourage youth activities. WIPCO recently partnered with affiliated cooperatives, CoBank and Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO) by providing cash donations to benefit the Monona County and Crawford County Fair Associations. The county fair associations actively support community groups such as 4-H, Extension, and other service oriented agencies by instructing and educating youth and adults through exhibits and the County Fairs. CoBank is a cooperative bank providing financial services to agribusinesses and rural power, water and communications providers in all 50 states. In August, WIPCO applied to CoBank’s “Sharing Success” program. Sharing Success matches qualifying contributions by its co-

operative customers to nonprofit organizations of their choice. NIPCO is the wholesale electric generation and transmission cooperative owned by Western Iowa Power Cooperative and five other rural electric cooperatives and a full-service municipal electric cooperative serving six western Iowa towns. NIPCO jointly sponsored a summer golf tournament with local, regional and national businesses and raised money that was given to each cooperative to be donated to the organization of their choice. “WIPCO strives not only to provide value to our members but to improve the quality of life in the local communities we serve,” said Jeff Bean, Western Iowa Power Cooperative general manager. “We commend the county fair associations and the great work they do to educate, promote, and showcase the agricultural, business, industry and life of Crawford and Monona County citizens of all ages.”

Farm Bureau’s survey shows Thanksgiving dinner up one percent But poultry and meat prices beginning to creep upward While the overall price tag of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner remains steady, with only a one percent increase from last year’s total meal cost, prices are beginning to creep upward for poultry and meat. As the price of grain for feed continues to inch upward after a drought-stricken harvest, livestock farmers are beginning to make adjustments for the increased costs of feeding those animals. But those food price hikes shouldn’t affect this year’s annual fall feast. According to the recent American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Thanksgiving Dinner Price Survey, a family of 10 can enjoy the typical Thanksgiving meal that features a 16-pound turkey, bread stuffing, cranberries, pumpkin pie and the trimmings for $49.48. “The Thanksgiving feast remains a real bargain for American families. The bounty of our flocks and fields can still be put on the table for less than $5 per person,” said Dave Miller, director of research and commodity services for the Iowa Farm Bureau. “Even in the face of weather challenges that cut production of corn and soybeans on many Iowa farms by 30 percent or more, the Thanksgiving meal this year has risen in cost by less than 1 percent.”

Turkey accounted for most of the increase in the cost of the dinner. The price for a 16-pound turkey crept up by 66 cents to $22.23, compared to $21.57 last year. The increase is a result of higher consumer demand for turkey, lowered turkey production and higher feed prices. “The modest increase in the price of this year's Thanksgiving turkey demonstrates the resilience of American turkey producers in the face of drought and higher feed costs,” said Miller. “During each of the first eight months of 2012, U.S. turkey producers increased production and prices were slightly lower than a year ago, but higher prices for feed due to the record-setting drought of 2012 has led them to curtail production by about four percent during October, resulting in the slight increase in price that may be seen as Thanksgiving approaches this year. But we are on the cusp of change regarding seeing higher prices for meat.” This year, small increases occurred for the costs of dinner rolls and items used to make the meals. The survey shopping list includes turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a relish tray of celery and carrots, pumpkin pie with whipped topping and beverages of coffee and milk, in quantities efficient to serve 10 people. More than 150 volunteer shoppers from 35 states, representing every region in the nation, participated in the annual AFBF Thanksgiving price shopping survey. The cost of the dinner has steadily climbed in recent years: 2008: $44.61, 2009: $42.91, 2010: $43.47, 2011: $49.20 and 2012: $49.48.

Iowa’s 2011 organic sales top $60 million Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey highlighted a report from the USDA National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) that Iowa’s 467organic farms had $60.7 million in sales in 2011, which represented two percent of the U.S. total. Iowa ranks fifth in the nation in the number of certified organic farms which cover 81,634 total acres. “The report was the first of its kind to focus solely on organic production and shows the significance of the organic industry in Iowa,” Northey said. “We have seen some increased interest in organic production here in Iowa and this report does a good job of helping us better understand the industry.” “Although NASS published the report, it would not have been possible without the voluntary cooperation of organic farmers across the state,” said Greg Thessen, director of the NASS Iowa Field Office. “The information not only showcases organic farmers’ contributions to Iowa agriculture, but the survey results will also help shape decisions regarding farm policy, crop insurance, funding allocations, availability of goods and services, as well as other key issues.” Sales of organic crops in Iowa accounted for $29.6 million, livestock and poultry sales accounted for $6.3 million, and livestock and poultry products accounted for $24.8 million. Sales of organic vegetables were $1.09 million, organic fruit sales were $23,849, and sales of organic berries were $30,777. Iowa led the nation in organic soybean production and 423,350 bushels and was second in production of organic corn for grain with 2.2 million bushels. Iowa was also first in organic oat production with 426,857 bushels produced. Iowa led the nation in organic hogs and pigs, with a peak inventory of 5,955 head and total sales of $2.68 million in 2011. Iowa also ranked first in organic goat inventory and organic milk from goats. The full results of the 2011 Certified Organic Production Survey can be found at http://bit.ly/2011OrganicSurvey.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) sent letters to the heads of 12 auto manufacturers asking them to follow the trend set by Ford Motor Company and General Motors and recommend E15 (a blend of 15 percent ethanol) for use in their new models. The letters stated, “It’s now been just over two years since the United States EPA authorized the use of E15 in new cars and light duty trucks sold in the U.S. Recent announcements by General Motors and Ford Motor Company that E15 is recommended for use in their new vehicles clearly demonstrates that ample time has passed for automakers to react to the EPA’s announcement and offer vehicles for sale in the U.S. that give consumers the fueling choice they deserve.” The letters continued by asking if E15 is a recommended fuel for the company’s model year 2013 cars and light duty trucks sold in the United States. If E15 is not a recommended for use in the company’s model year 2013 cars and light duty trucks, the IRFA also asked, “Given the two years to research and prepare for the transition to E15, please explain why your company chose not to align its products with all of the legal fuel options sold in the United States?” “E15 has been approved for use in new models for more than two years now and consumers deserve the freedom of fuel choice,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “If E15 is not recommended for use in these companies’ new cars and light duty trucks, then consumers ought to know if there is really substandard components used to build 2013 models compared to components used by Ford and General Motors where E15 is recommended.” The letters were sent to the heads of BMW of North America, Chrysler Group, American Honda Motor Company, Hyundai Motors America, Kia Motors America, Mazda Motors of America, Mercedes-Benz USA, Nissan North America, Saab Cars North America, Toyota North America, Volkswagen Group of America, and Volvo Group North America.
