Small town serenity of Amelia, Neb.

By Chris Beutler Midwest Messenger Nestled in between the Sandhills to the west and the rich loamy soils to the east lies Amelia, Neb., population six Amelia is in Holt County, in the north central part of the state. The sign states it is unincorporated, meaning it doesn’t have any businesses or government offices, although this town has a post office or at least a zip code of 68711. Located southwest of O’Neill, this little community is considered “Hay Country.” Its rolling hills and endless meadows are marked by groves of cottonwoods and windbreaks planted by homesteaders over 150 years ago. I’ve been through here a few times and often I slow down to just take in the scenery, and to manage the winding roads. The peaceful tranquility is refreshing to someone like me with a lot of windshield time. The serenity of nature, clear streams, and breathtaking views can take you back in time. Few places can do this like this region. Except for a few modern buildings and equipment, this area remains untouched, or touched as if it were by a gentle hand. The vast horizon makes the sunrise and Please turn to BEUTLER on Page 31

Nebraska Cattlemen Convention Dec. 6-9 in Kearney LINCOLN, Neb. — The 2016 Annual Nebraska Cattlemen Convention and Trade Show will be held in Kearney at the Younes Convention Center Dec. 6-9. This year’s convention schedule is packed full of industry leaders, speakers and educational opportunities for all ages of cattlemen and women. The week starts off with the 2016 Cattlemen’s College, sponsored by Zoetis. This event has been such a hit over the years that it’s been moved to Tuesday, Dec. 6, to allow for a full afternoon and evening of educational opportunities. The program offers a wide range of speakers that will discuss genomics, weather, farm succession and a market outlook. The education program is designed to address relevant issues

and deliver information that will improve production and profitability. The college will wrap up with a networking reception and a panel on product quality and the consumer. Wednesday will kick off with a new event. The YCC Class of 2016 will host a Young Cattlemen’s Round Table from 1 to 3 p.m. The goal of the round table is to inspire members to get involved in the Nebraska Cattlemen and experience the benefits of the organization. Attendees will be able to discuss what is happening in the beef industry and what it means to them. Council meetings will fill the rest of the day and Wednesday will conclude with the General Session. Speakers include Kevin Kester, vice president, National Cattlemen’s

Beef Association (NCBA); Allison Cook, executive director of government affairs, NCBA, and Clint Krehbiel, head of the UNL Department of Animal Science. After the General Session the welcome reception will begin in the trade show. After a full day of committee meetings, Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation Lunch and trade show happenings, the annual banquet will wrap up the evening on Thursday, Dec. 8, beginning at 7 p.m. A few cattlemen will be recognized for their dedication to the industry and items will be up for grabs during the live auction. Convention will end on Friday after the Market Outlook Breakfast and the annual business meeting. The entire schedule can be viewed at http://nebraskacattlemen.org/convention.aspx.

ical tools for control of diseases in livestock. Antibiotic resistance threatens the use of antibiotics in livestock for two important reasons. If resistance develops, the antibiotic may not be effective in treating the disease. Increased antibiotic resistance could lead to limited access to antibiotics for use in livestock. “KSUantibiotics.org was created as a launching point to find information about antibiotics,” said Mike Tokach, Kansas State University Department of Animal Sciences and Industry distinguished professor. “The

resistance, featuring new K-State fact sheets about how antibiotic resistance occurs and why livestock producers should care about antibiotic resistance.” The website, at www.KSUantibiotics.org also includes links to sites that provide an overview of antibiotic resistance, mechanisms, the current knowledge about resistance in livestock production, USDA and the Food and Drug Administration action plans concerning resistance, and news feeds with the latest information on the topic. The subpages

as the World Health Organization, producer groups like the National Pork Board, and research publications on the topics. Besides information on resistance, the site includes links to the rules concerning the FDA’s Veterinary Feed Directives (VFD) for livestock producers and other antibiotic regulations. Links to videos created by the Beef Cattle Institute at K-State can be found under the VFD section. Another section leads to reviews on the main alternatives to antibiotics that have been tested.

U.S. contracts 1.9 million pounds of cheese, butter for export sales ARLINGTON, Va. — Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted 11 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Foremost Farms and Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold). These member cooperatives have contracts to sell 1.609 million pounds (730 metric tons) of Cheddar, Gouda and Monterey Jack cheese, and 308,647 pounds (140 metric tons) of butter to customers in Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania. The product has been contracted for delivery in the period from November 2016 through February 2017. So far this year, CWT has assisted member cooperatives who have contracts to sell 45.799 million pounds of American-type cheeses, 11.748 million pounds of butter (82 percent milkfat) and 21.316 million pounds of whole milk powder to twenty-three countries on five continents. The sales are the equivalent of 842.673 million pounds of milk on a milkfat basis. Assisting CWT members through the Export Assistance program, in the long-term, helps member cooperatives gain and maintain market share, thus expanding the demand for U.S. dairy products and the U.S. farm milk that produces them. This, in turn, positively impacts all U.S. dairy farmers by strengthening and maintaining the value of dairy products that directly impact their milk price.

The Nebraska Pork Producers Association wants students to be a part of the 2017 Pork Mentorship Program. Students connected to agriculture and believe in the future of the pork industry are encouraged to apply. Scholarships worth $500 are available for college-age students who have an interest in the pork industry — they don’t have to be a pork producer! Applications are due Dec. 5. Students may apply by visiting the youth tab on www.nepork.org. The Pork Mentorship Program is directed under Kyla Habrock, NPPA youth education director. “The NPPA Pork Mentorship Program is more than just a scholarship. It’s a way for students to build their capacity as a leader and professional in the swine and agriculture industries in Nebraska,” Habrock said. “The program provides students with an opportunity to identify future career goals and to evolve into strong agricultural advocates.” The Pork Mentorship Program was established in 1999. To date, over 125 students have completed the program and over $68,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Each year the students participate in activities that encourage personal growth, leadership development, community engagement and expand their knowledge of the pork industry. A $500 scholarship is awarded upon the completion of the year-long program.

BEUTLER Continued from Page 28 sunset endless. I’m certain as pioneers looked to settle, this pristine area had to be promising with its lush green and protective valleys. Cattle thrive here, and the wildlife is abundant. Corn does well, as do soybeans with the help of irrigation. Alfalfa and the native grasses feed off water prevalent only inches below the surface. Today, round bales are common, but looking near the trees and field corners one can find the large hay cages of an era when work was hard and the day was long. Amelia shows the architecture of simplicity and necessity of days gone by. Highway 95 carries a fresh surface connecting to Chambers to the east, where businesses like a grocery store, repair shops and a mini-mart remain prominent to locals as far away as 20 miles. It’s towns like these that give Nebraska its character. There are many towns in Nebraska with single or double digit population numbers and many of them remain unincorporated. Most on the eastern side of the state are annexed by neighboring towns and then see growth and change, while others to the west just continue. As this author guesses, many of those towns like it just the way it is. I live in the small town of Bancroft, and I am old enough to remember Saturday nights where stores stayed open until 9 pm. In the fall after harvest, the streets were full of shoppers getting staples and paying their bills from a summer of nonexistent income. Credit cards were recipe cards in which a pencil noted the account, and with a nod and an exchange of “thank you” a binding contract was formed. These markers were then stored in a box next to a cash register that chimed when a sale was made. Sociology teaches us that humanity desires a crowd. We want to go to a busy shopping mall or a crowded restaurant. But to most of us in the rural area, we then want to go home, where the quiet is our solitude. Small towns are where everyone knows everybody, and the dust trail or the sound tells you who drove by. Tell us about your small town, we would love to hear more. Was it a coincidence that I potentially started a series on small towns with Amelia and the letter “A”? Yes, absolutely, I was driving by and I stopped and snapped the picture. Then the story took over in my head, wondering what was it like 20 or 50 or 100 years ago right here. So today with all the transition in politics, we watch TV and Google on our smart phones. It’s good to know what is going on in this world in which we live. And in small towns like these in Nebraska or Kansas or Oklahoma, it’s good to see what is happening ... and even nicer not to hear it!

European companies commit to Nebraska beef purchases LINCOLN, Neb. — Gov. Pete Ricketts and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) announced that a trade mission to the European Union has led to agreements expanding markets for Nebraska beef. A delegation led by NDA Director Greg Ibach met with leaders from a number of European companies and signed six letters of intent formalizing commitments to purchase and promote Nebraska beef. “Growth in demand for Nebraska beef in Europe is helping grow our market share and grow Nebraska,” Ricketts said, “I am committed to supporting our beef industry by promoting the Nebraska beef brand all around the globe. Missions like these continue to help Nebraska’s share of beef exports grow exponentially both in the EU and around the world.” Nebraska is the number one producer of beef in the nation. “Signing these letters of intent is great news for Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers,” said NDA Director Greg Ibach. “Nebraska has long been a leader and innovator in beef production, raising some of the best cattle and

beef in the world. By promoting the Nebraska brand of excellence and quality we will continue to increase our exports of beef. More exports mean more jobs and growth in the Nebraska economy.” Representatives from import companies and restaurant chains doing business in England, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands met with Ibach and others. The delegation included Chris Calkins, professor of animal science, University of Nebraska; Myron Danner, Nebraska rancher and member of the Nebraska Beef Council; Jerry Wiggs, Greater Omaha Packing Co.; and Stan Garbacz, NDA. During the trip, the group promoted the attributes of the Nebraska beef production system. They touted the grasslands, where families raise their herds to produce calves that will fill the feedlots across Nebraska and those cattle will consume locally grown corn, distillers grains and roughages. The group went on to share that these finished cattle are processed in plants that pay special attention to consumer expectations and food safety. This unique system allows Nebraska’s farm

families to feed families around the world. In 2005, when NDA started promoting Nebraska beef in partnership with the Nebraska Beef Council, the United States exported $36.3 million of beef to Europe. Nebraska’s share was $1.8 million or 5 percent. Ten years later in 2015, when the U.S. exported $315.4 million to Europe, Nebraska’s share of the market had grown to 45.2 percent or $142.7 million. In the first 6 months of 2016, Nebraska has continued to grow its market share exporting 50 percent of the U.S. total. The following is a summary of the delegations activities during the trip: London — Met with Goodman Restaurants to sign a letter of intent for the group to increase purchases of Nebraska beef. A new customer, Roar Global, signed a letter of intent to purchase and promote Nebraska beef. This decision follows a visit to Nebraska this summer where they saw firsthand, the innovative system Nebraska families and businesses have created to produce high quality beef. Düsseldorf, Germany — Albers GmbH

Foods pledged to continue to promote and expand their sales of Nebraska beef. While in Germany, the Albers family hosted a promotional event to hear presentations from Chris Calkins and Myron Danner where 70 current and potential new customers learned how to utilize lower-priced wholesale cuts in the chuck to create value-added consumer cuts. Paris — The Nebraska delegation attended the SIAL Food Show where they met with numerous current and potential customers, including a potential importer for the China market when it opens. While there, Gunnar Dafgärd AB of Sweden, and Meta Foods with European operations based in the Netherlands, signed letters of intent aimed at growing the Nebraska beef footprint. Valencia, Spain — The delegation presented at a workshop to share the Nebraska beef story with 50 potential customers of the INALCA company in Spain. INALCA, an Italian importer, has been a long-term buyer of Nebraska beef and is working aggressively in the Spanish market to expand its sales. INALCA pledged to work with Nebraska to accomplish this goal.

Biosecurity checklist safeguards farm profits By Jeff DeYoung Lee Agri-Media Mark Hover believes there is no such thing as a perfect biosecurity system, but he says the pursuit of perfection should lead to fewer disease issues. Hover is senior production manager for Reicks View Farms, a large farrow-to-finish operation in Northeast Iowa. He says the company leaves no stone uncovered when it comes to biosecurity in its multi-faceted operations, which also includes a nucleus sow farm, boar stud and feed mill. “With the PED issue a few years ago, knock on wood but we didn’t have it at any of our eight sow farms,” Hover says. “That’s a pretty big deal and showed what we are doing seems to be working.” The company has its own trucks, and all are washed, disinfected and then heated at 160 degrees for 10 minutes after usage. “We have trucks that only go to the market place to sell hogs, and we have trucks that take pigs to the sow farm or nursery,” Hover says. “We are very aggressive when it comes to baking trucks. We have a couple of guys who check on it a couple of times a day, because we need to be able to verify what we’re doing.” Buildings on the eight sow farms are equipped with filters, a step Hover says is designed to keep airborne diseases out of the structures. “Every day we walk around the barn to make sure the fans are running and that everything is how it should be,” he says. “We want to keep what’s outside out there and out of the building.” No detail is too small, Hover says. Employee lunch boxes are even cleaned with disinfectant wipes to make sure no bacteria finds its way into a building. “We do a lot of training with our employees. We are always talking about our biosecurity pro-

gram,” he says. “It’s really the lifeline of our operation.” Sanitation is the key to a strong biosecurity program, says Lisa Becton, a veterinarian and director of swine health information and research for the National Pork Board. She says many diseases such as PRRS thrive in cold weather, but the weather also makes biosecurity chores more challenging. “Washing anything outside is going to be more difficult as the temperature drops,” Becton says. “You need to have the ability to clean, disinfect and dry vehicles and trailers, especially after a high-risk shipment.” Overall farm sanitation is also important. That includes thoroughly cleaning chutes, walkways and other areas of the farm. Becton says pests will also try to work their way indoors as winter approaches. “You want to make sure there are no holes in the curtains, and if there are, make sure they’re closed,” she says. “Clean up around the buildings so you aren’t inviting rodents or anything else into the building. Also, check feed supplies to make sure it’s clean.” Employees need to make sure they follow the farm’s biosecurity protocol, as do vendors, veterinarians and other people coming to the farm. “Change the shoes and coveralls. Carry your lunch in a disposable plastic bag, or bring it in a cooler you can disinfect,” Becton says. “There are many, many ways bacteria can get into a building, so it’s important that you are very careful about what goes in a building.” Producers should have a plan in place when supplies arrive on the farm. Manure application also needs to be monitored, she says. “It’s very difficult because there are so many details involved with biosecurity,” Becton says. “We see the bigger concerns, but the smaller issues could cause a large problem. It’s really

Brand Committee hires new executive director The Nebraska Brand Committee has announced the selection of William “Bill” Bunce as it new executive director. Bunce will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Shawn Harvey. The selection was made after a nationwide search and selection process with the assistance of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. “We are very pleased to announce Bill’s hiring,” reported Jerry Kuenning, committee chairman. “He will bring a great level of leadership and knowledge to the Nebraska Brand Committee. His previous experiences will prove instrumental in not only implementing the technology program that is in development but also in working with state government. This will be a great fit for the committee and the beef producers that we represent.”

Bunce’s resume includes more than 25 years of involvement in the livestock industry. A graduate in Animal Science of the University of Missouri, he has served as the vice president of the American Polled Hereford Association, director of advertising and editorial consultant for the Quarter Horse Racing Journal, director of agri-business and international marketing for the State of Wyoming, superintendent of ranch operations for True Companies, and currently as the governor-appointed executive director of the New Mexico Livestock Board. Bunce, who will begin his new duties Jan. 1, will oversee the $4.7 million annual budget and the 100 employees of the Nebraska Brand Committee while serving as the chief brand inspector, chief brand investigator and Brand Committee head.

important to have some sort of checklist you can follow.” Hover says being able to control most of the movement on the farm helps with biosecurity. He says certain feed trucks deliver to the nucleus farm, which is off-site, as well as the sow buildings. Medications and other supplies are delivered once a month and are placed in the fumigation room after being removed from packaging. “We don’t allow any cardboard packaging into the buildings,” Hover says. Boars are also tested frequently. “Three times a week, we drive to Ames with samples for the (Veterinary Diagnostic) lab

there,” he says. Hover says while the system seems to be working, he and other employees will remain vigilant when it comes to biosecurity. “We’re not perfect, and we try to learn every day,” he says. “We have the ability to react quickly when something comes up, and we can come up with a solution. “With a large operation like Reicks View Farms, there is a lot going on. But I think it’s important to keep it simple while covering all the details. That approach seems to be working well.”
