Business is sweet Cashton dairy farmer enters maple syrup enterprise By Cassie Olson

cassie.o@dairystar.com

CASHTON, Wis. – It is no secret that Jack Herricks loves caring for the land as much as he loves caring for his cows. Herricks, who milks 600 cows with his family on his farm near Cashton, Wis., is a past recipient of Wisconsin’s Aldo Leopold Conservation Award, an avid deer hunter and a steward of his family’s 1,300 acres of cropland. What was once a far-off idea, Herricks has added maple syrup production to his growing list of land management practices. According to Herricks, there are three things necessary to dive into any new enterprise. “You need an idea, a checkbook and people who are going to get it done,” Herricks said. The idea for making maple syrup came to Herricks through years of deer hunting. Having harvested red oaks and other hardwood trees from the farm’s woodlots, he had noticed a new species springing up as he walked throughout the

next dominant species in the forest chain.” Herricks said his situation was unique as he is in an area where maple syrup production is a popular and growing business. A local business sells materials such as tubing and evaporator equipment. Knowing the infrastructure was in place,

Herricks was willing to pay for the materials needed to get started; he just needed the man power. Herricks is fortunate to have ambitious neighbors who have helped him in his own endeavor. With limited time of his own, the Turn to HERRICKS | Page 4

ConƟnued from HERRICKS | Page 3 put in the sap lines and another had an evaporator who was willing to take our sap on,” Herricks said. Herricks had his woodlots reclassied to class three tillable for specialty crop production. To do so, he had to have a minimum of 40 tapped trees per acre. During his rst year of production, Herricks tapped 800 trees total.

Today, that number has increased to 2,000 taps on 30 acres of total woodlot. Tapping trees may bring to mind the image of metal spiles with buckets attached. Herricks, however, runs a series of sap lines. Plastic tubing is attached to the tree spiles, all connecting and running together to a larger tank.

CASSIE OLSON/DAIRY STAR

Herricks prepares a tank for sap collecƟon. When the weather is ideal for sap harvest, Herricks will collect the sap daily from recycled milk bulk tanks throughout his woodlots.

CASSIE OLSON/DAIRY STAR

(Above) Herricks taps over 2,000 sugar maple trees annually across his 30 acres of woodlot. On average, it takes three to four days to layout the saplines throughout the woods. (LeŌ) Sap ows into the bulk tank via a vacuum pump and plasƟc saplines. In 2015, Herricks harvested over 21,000 gallons of sap, which made approximately 420 gallons of syrup.

The sap seeps down the sap line either by gravity ow or, most commonly, a vacuum pump. The sap is stored in recycled milk bulk tanks which are emptied on a daily basis once the weather is warm enough for the sap to run. The spiles have check valves that self seal so the tree’s wound stays open even if the sap isn’t running, allowing syrup producers to harvest more sap per tree. Oneida Maple Farms’ evaporator handles the sap for several neighbors. Once the sap is harvested, it is delivered in a tank to the evaporator. Each producer is responsible for using a hydrometer to get a Brix test reading on the sap’s sugar content. Herricks said

this is one of the most enjoyable parts of the process. “Everyone is responsible for writing down the date, gallons and Brix test reading on their sap – all on the honor system,” Herricks said. “It a social atmosphere; I get to talk to the other producers on the days I bring in sap. It is one of the few places I know of that still have that kind of trustworthy, social environment.” Once the sap is converted into syrup, it is bottled and sold in a variety of ways. Some individuals sell syrup from their homes, but it is also sold at Turn to HERRICKS | Page 5

Herricks’ sap is boĆŠled into syrup with Oneida Maple Farms in Cashton, Wis. A group of six farms contribute sap to the syrup, which is sold in home and wholesale within the community. produce auctions and through connections with local businesses. The remainder is wholesaled. In 2016, Herricks harvested over 21,000 gallons of sap, making approximately 420 gallons of syrup. While he is able to make a small proďƒžt off of the syrup sold, he said that is not the focus. “We need to recognize the concept that farming is generational; with trees, a lot of what you do is not putting money in your pocket, but will make it proďƒžtable for future generations,â€? Herricks said. Herricks said management practices are unique for each woodlot depending upon what the goal is. Prior to harvesting maple sap, cull trees are cut for ďƒžrewood and logs are harvested throughout the woodlots. With management practices being employed on less than 5 percent of privately-owned woodlots in Wisconsin, Herricks encourages landowners to care for the nature around them. “Renewing woodlots is important; it is important that our families have timber and other natural resources for future generations,â€? Herricks said. “You have to take care of those resources and realize it is your responsibility to manage them wisely.â€? From an idea in the woods to a product on the table, Herricks is happily enjoying the friendships and adventure that comes with maple syrup production. Whether it is milking cows, raising crops or harvesting sap, Herricks said all of his endeavors fall into the lifestyle he believes is his calling. “Our calling is to produce food for God’s people,â€? Herricks said. “Everything I do corresponds to that calling.â€?

Rohl incorporates farm background into artwork By Brittany Olson

brittany.o@dairystar.com

RIVER FALLS, Wis. – Growing up on a dairy farm near Ellsworth, Wis., instilled a profound love for the dairy cow in Samantha Rohl. Rohl, who is an art and psychology major at the University of WisconsinRiver Falls, has been painting cattle since her freshman year of high school. She paints in addition to working at the university’s dairy farm at Lab Farm 2, at a group home for at-risk teenagers and helping her dad, Mike Rohl, on the family’s 100-cow dairy when needed. “I use all types of media. I like chalk pastels, but they can be messy,� Rohl said. “Paint is nice because it’s forgiving.� Rohl has also found that her work is a great medium for telling the story of dairy to her classmates as well as the general public. “I started off as an animal science major, but I already knew most of the things that were being taught,� Rohl said. “I also wanted to keep art around in my life.� It was then that Rohl decided to switch from animal science to majoring in art. She later added a second major in psychology to pursue a career in art therapy. “I feel that this is a better way of

Samantha Rohl did a series of painƟngs depicƟng her favorite cows at home: Pet, Oops, Stub and Toot. Rohl uses art to tell the story of agriculture to the public, and plans to aƩend graduate school for art therapy. I did a drawing of a cow with just her muscle anatomy on one side and bone anatomy on the other, and I had people asking, ‘Do you not want people eating meat?’ That wasn’t the intent at all.” The young artist advocates for agriculture in the classroom by encouraging her classmates to visit the lab farm, as well as trying to get teenagers in the group home she works in to take a trip to the farm.

“We’re talking about going to the lab farm in one of my painting classes right now, and I am so excited,” Rohl said. After switching majors, Rohl did a series of four paintings in one of her classes, which consisted of depictions of her cows at home with backgrounds she felt t their personalities best.

ConĆ&#x;nued from ROHL | Page 8 For example, Oops the cow has a bit of a princess complex, Rohl said, so a purple backdrop was ďƒžtting. Toot the cow survived being hit by a car as a calf, which explains the name Toot. “Pet is, well, a pet and she’s a lot of fun, hence the yellow background. Oops is half Angus, but thinks she’s royalty, so she has a purple background,â€? Rohl said. “Stub is missing half an ear and isn’t the friendliest cow, so her color is red, and Toot, who has a messed-up jaw from her accident, has a pink background because she’s a sweet natured cow.â€? Later on, Rohl submitted a form to paint one of the utility boxes on the UWRF campus as part of a beautiďƒžcation project by the city of River Falls, and was selected to paint the utility box next to the Agriculture Science building. Because of the university’s

rich dairy heritage, Rohl painted cattle on two sides of the utility box and a barn scene with silos on another side. Rohl, in addition to her work in the classroom, has already received an award for her work. “In one of my classes, we had to paint something that was mass produced so I did a painting of toy cows and got an award for it,� she said. While she mostly focuses on painting, Rohl has also done a photography project depicting milking time at the lab farm and a ceramic project. “For ceramics, I made a barn that’s falling apart to tell the story of small town America and farming falling apart,� Rohl said. Right now, Rohl is doing a project juxtaposing animals and humans. Naturally, she chose cattle.

“I’m doing paintings with women and cattle right now,� she said. While Rohl’s life’s work is her art, it is still her escape when all is said and done. “It’s calming,� she said. With graduation looming on the horizon next spring, Rohl is touring potential graduate schools to continue her education and work as an art therapist after earning her master’s degree. “I’m looking to either go to Illinois, Colorado or New Mexico for graduate school,� Rohl said. No matter where she travels, Rohl will always keep dairy farming in her heart and tell the story of agriculture and rural America every chance she gets. “I’ll be incorporating agriculture into my art in my free time,� Rohl said.

Tight margins, tight belts WAWS panel discusses management tips, resources for difcult times By Cassie Olson

cassie.o@dairystar.com

MADISON, Wis. – Farmers are well aware of the hardships that come with the agriculture industry. As shown in recent years, the ups and downs of the agriculture economy are not for the faint of heart. Kathy Rentmeester, a dairy farmer from Denmark, Wis., Kim Koepke, a dairy farmer from Oconomowoc, Wis., and Kathy Schmitt, director of Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) Farm Center, discussed management tips and resources that have helped them weather the economy during a panel discussion at the Wisconsin Ag Women’s Summit, March 10 in Madison, Wis. Discussion moderator Paul Dietmann of Badgerland Financial said debt in agriculture is on the rise. “Total farm debt has been increasing at a slow level, while debt relative to income is increasing more steadily,” Dietmann said. “Meanwhile, we are anticipating the fourth straight year of lower net farm income for Wisconsin farmers.” Rentmeester, who milks 60 cows with her family, recalled times when the nancial outlook was much brighter. It was in those times, she said, that her family did what they could to be ahead. “Back in 2007 to 2008, it really was fun to farm. We were making money that allowed us to buy another small farm behind us, pay everything off quickly and have little debt remaining,” Rentmeester said. “In 32 years, last year was the most stressful.” Koepke, who milks 330 registered Holsteins, said she took advantages of better markets to help prepare for the lows. “We purchased land to increase our grain capacity for cash grains,” Koepke said. One way Koepke and her family have managed difcult markets is forward contract milk pricing. In a forward contract, the milk buyer and dairy farmer agree to sell a quantity of milk for a set price for a specic time period in the future. It has allowed Koepke and her family to reduce the risk of milk price volatility since they started using forward contracts in 1999. “It helps us protect our break-even price, which we have found to be $16.15. It is hard to plan when the target keeps moving, but when we expect there to be down markets, we can lock in ahead,” Koepke said. “Knowing the price ahead of time makes life easier.” Rentmeester added that marketing quality dairy animals as well as steers has helped signicantly. “It’s hard to sell some of your best heifers, but the ones we send are good quality with the intent of making future sales or referrals,” Rentmeester said. “We are marketing our cattle to private individuals [to ensure a better price].” Working at the DATCP Farm Center, Schmitt said there are services available to help farmers navigate the difcult nancial conditions. “We have a 1-800 farmer assist hotline that handles everything from risk management to transition planning,” Schmitt said. “That is the bread and butter of our service center. We handle basic questions over the phone and will get more involved if we feel that there is a case.” The farmer assist hotline is available from 7:45 a.m., to 4:30 p.m., weekdays at 1-800-942-2474. The center receives approximately 1,200 phone calls per year from farmers of every industry. “We have specialists for organic, grazing and specialty crop farms. We sit with the family to sort through messy situations,” Schmitt said. Koepke said that while it is no easy task, nding ways to plan ahead is the best way to navigate the storms within the industry.

Heat stress high in holding area

Nordlund presents about positive-pressure tubes as better way to ventilate By Ron Johnson

ron.j@dairystar.com

MADISON, Wis. – One of the most uncomfortable places for dairy cows is a barn’s holding area. Heat stress can develop there, as cows wait to walk into the milking parlor, said Ken Nordlund, a clinical professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Positive-pressure tubes can deliver fresh air. With such tubes, there’s no need for wind to aid in cooling. Nordlund presented “Rethinking Holding Areas to Minimize Heat Stress” March 16 during the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin’s annual business conference in Madison, Wis. Nordlund said heat stress, for cows, starts at 68 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result of heat stress, several things – none of them good – can occur. A cow eats less, but her energy needs go up because she starts to pant. At the same time, her milk production goes down. Cows’ conception rates decline, too, Nordlund said. And, heat-stressed cows stand more. That extra standing puts them at risk for lameness, particularly laminitis. One heat stress trial involved 30 cows on two farms. The air temperature rose six days in a row, and the temper-

ature-humidity index (THI) climbed from 67 to 78, for an increase of about two degrees a day. “A modest difference of two degrees for a few hours has a large effect on a cow,” Nordlund said. Cow temperatures rose to as high as 104.5 on the sixth day. That’s well above a cow’s normal temperature of 101.5 degrees, Nordlund said. That trial brought out four main points. Cows’ temperatures rose when they lay down, and rose when they stood. By Ken Nordlund The cows’ average daily core body UW-Madison temperatures rose from 101.8 degrees Fahrenheit to 103.1. Average cow lying time decreased from 9.5 hours on the coolest day to just 6.2 hours on the hottest day. The number of times cows lay down remained constant, at 11.6 per day. But their duration dropped from 0.82 hour on the coolest day to 0.55 hour on the hottest day. Nordlund went on to talk about a comparison of two holding areas. They were identical, he said, except for the type of ventilation. One was traditionally ventilated, using 24 recirculating fans. The other one used eight recirculating fans plus eight tube fans. Cows’ temperatures were measured twice – when they entered the holding area and when they left the milking parlor. These cows were milked three times a day and the trial lasted six days,

Faber’s

meaning 18 measurements were made per cow. “Cows dissipated heat slightly better in the tube holding area than in the traditional one,” Nordlund said. In the traditional holding area, the change in temperature was 0.94 degree. In the tube-ventilated holding area, the temperature change was 1.26 degrees. Nordlund called the tube installation primitive, in that it covered only part of the holding area. And, the tubes were angled, making for less-than-optimal performance. Using Wisconsin’s Dane County as an example, Nordlund said the wind during July is mainly from the south and southwest. That month also brings no wind at all 11 percent of the time. Adding to the possibility of heat stress is the fact that many barns face east or west, and can’t take full advantage of cooling winds. And, in most barns the milking center is in the center of the barn. What’s more, the presence of other barns or buildings sometimes blocks the wind. “When ventilation is compromised, recirculating fans recirculate increasingly hot and more-humid air,” Nordlund said. “Velocity is not ventilation.” Without fresh air, a holding area accumulates heat and humidity, he said. Add to that the heat generated by many cows as they wait to be milked. “A high-producing cow can exhale more than four gallons of water from her lungs per day. Respiration is her primary cooling method,” Nordlund said. “A cow producing more than 80 pounds of milk per day generates about 5,000 BTUs, about the same as a 1,500-watt

space heater.” It’s not just higher temperatures that bother cows. Higher humidity is also a factor. When the humidity rises by 20 percent, it’s as though the temperature rose ve degrees. “Relative humidity has a huge effect on heat stress,” Nordlund said. Compounding the problem is the fact that cows sweat very little. That means air moving quickly over a cow provides almost no cooling unless her skin is wet. And, said Nordlund, the air must be moving faster than 200 feet per minute. Most traditional holding areas are poorly ventilated, Nordlund said. They have too few fans or the fans don’t move the air fast enough. Nordlund offered an alternative vision to what a holding area looks like. Positive-pressure tube systems deliver fresh air from outside across the holding area. Old air is not recirculated. That fresh air is cooler and contains less moisture. Moving air comes from 25 to 50 small jets – not one large one created by a fan. Each, cow can have multiple jets of air hitting her at 400 feet per minute, Nordlund said. These streams of air ow onto and between cows instead of glancing across the top of cows, Nordlund said. Sprinklers can be positioned between the air tubes, he said. “Installation costs [of positivepressure tube systems] are similar to fully equipped traditional approaches,” Nordlund said. “But operating (electricity) costs and noise are reduced to half.”

CASSIE OLSON/DAIRY STAR

Kathy SchmiƩ (leŌ), Kathy Rentmeester and Kim Koepke make up the discussion panel at the Wisconsin Ag Women’s Summit on March 10 in Madison, Wis. The panel discussed the management Ɵps and resources that have helped them in the ups and downs of the ag economy in a discussion Ɵtled “Tight Margins, Tight Belts.” nd the appropriate tool for its specic area of need. “We have a custom spreadsheet in Excel to help us determine our potential cash ow. We can change things such as rolling herd average and the milk price,” Koepke said. “It helps us to analyze the nancial data and make decisions when moving ahead.” Cutting out unnecessary costs is another way Rentmeester’s family has bettered their prot margin. “We don’t have crop insurance right now; it wasn’t to our advantage,” Rentmeester said. “We have enough land now that if we have a bad year we have enough to feed the animals without the added expense.” For biosecurity reasons and as a risk management strategy, Koepke has closed her herd. She said not only has it

improved the cattle she is marketing for sales, it has bettered the herd’s health and well being. “Animals are only going out to minimize our risk,” Koepke said. Finally, Schmitt said farmers need to look out for one another. Managing stress and recognizing the signs of poor stress management are ways to help. “Watch for changes in routine or anything out of the normal. Men tend to hunker down and work like crazy to ignore what is really going on, while women tend to express their emotions more openly,” Schmitt said. Schmitt concluded the presentation when she said while the industry is at a low, she believes situations will improve in time. “You are not alone in the struggle,” she said.

“Back in 2007 to 2008, it really was fun to farm. We were making money that allowed us to buy another small farm behind us, pay everything off quickly and have little debt remaining. In 32 years, last year was the most stressful.” KATHY RENTMEESTER, DAIRY PRODUCER

Member-owned cooperatives make their voices heard in St. Paul More than 75 cooperative business directors, managers, and staff met in St. Paul earlier this week for Cooperative Network’s annual Minnesota Co-op Day at the Capitol. Nine cross-sector lobbying groups met with agency commissioners, caucus leaders and more than 50 legislators to share how certain proposals would affect their businesses and communities. Participants included Cooperative Network members from agriculture, credit union, dairy, energy, electric, farm credit, food and member-owned cooperatives throughout the state. “This event brings together members from across the state and across the sectors we represent,” says Tom Liebe, Cooperative Network president and CEO. “Cooperative Network prides itself in unifying their voice and this event allows them to become actively involved in lobbying for important issues directly.” Participants met with policymakers to discuss issues related to the regulation of water quality, local cooperative governance, taxation of property, transportation, credit union member communication and support for broadband access. Participants also thanked legislators for the passage of a provision to enable an agricultural cooperative healthcare coverage option that was enacted earlier this session as part of a larger healthcare package. Agency commissioners and legislative leaders met with the large group to address co-op priorities, hear concerns and answer questions. Among those who spoke with participants were Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson, Department of Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman and Depart-

Also meeting with the group were House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R – Crown), Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka (R – Nisswa), Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk (DFL – Cook), and House Minority Leader Melissa Hortman (DFL – Brooklyn Park). “Member-owned cooperatives make signicant contributions to improving the quality of life in Minnesota, and it is important that those shaping public policy hear about the positive impact of cooperatives and their members,” says Matt Hughes, Cooperative Network vice president and Minnesota managing director. “We are very grateful to all our cooperative members who took time to engage at the Capitol, and to all the lawmakers who took time to be with them.” Climate update predicts wetter than average April April is more likely to be wetter than average, according to a climate outlook released March 16, 2017 by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center. “Of anywhere in the United States, the highest likelihood of wetter conditions is in our area,” said Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension State Climatologist. “There is a bulls-eye in eastern South Dakota that is projected to have wetter conditions than average in April.” Edwards explained that this spring outlook is consistent with the long term trend in the region. “The long term trends in eastern South Dakota over the last several decades has shown more precipitation in the spring and falls seasons,” she said. “The good news is that there is no concern about drought development in the spring season for farmers and gardeners.” Edwards added that April precipitation has proven to be critical for pasture, forage and hay production throughout the state. “Abundant moisture would benet grasslands and hay for livestock feed this summer,” she said. Due to the above-freezing temperatures throughout February and early March, the soils are now able to absorb some more moisture. Even though many of the state’s eastern counties had a refreeze, with colder temperatures that started around March 10, Edwards said soils will warm up quickly after the new snow melts. No substantial ood risks No regions in South Dakota are at risk for substantial ooding at this time. “According to the NOAA Flood Outlook released March 16, only the far eastern areas in the Minnesota River basin have any risk of even minor ooding,” Edwards said. The temperature outlook for April shows warmer than average conditions favored to our south and eastern portions of the U.S. but Edwards said it less clear for South Dakota. “There is some uncertainty on what lies ahead for spring temperatures, with equal chances of warmer or cooler than average in the next three months,” she said. Applicants sought for Holstein Association USA Junior Advisory Committee adult representatives Holstein Association USA is currently seeking applications for adult representatives from Areas III and IV on the Junior Advisory Committee (JAC). The JAC serves as a sounding board for Junior members and advisors on Holstein youth programs. Applications must be submitted to Holstein Association USA by April 1 for consideration.

Bio-Cal: Research Backed, Field Proven In 2016, we partnered with an independent research farm to demonstrate the impact Bio-Cal can have when added to alfalfa fertility programs often used in the Midwest (0-0-60 and DAP). The result: A 10.7 percent yield increase, or almost a 1/2 ton more hay per acre, in the seeding year. We’ve recommended applying calcium to forages for over 30 years to support high-yielding forages with outstanding nutritional value. With over 32 percent calcium in both soluble and slow-release forms, Bio-Cal has helped farms across the Midwest make big improvements to crop yields and feed efficiency. If you’re looking for a proven forage product with positive ROI, consider adding Bio-Cal to your program.

Star Youth

What dairy or ag-related extracurricular activities are you involved in? I am involved in 4-H, FFA and the Iowa Holstein Association. Why are you involved in these activities/organizations and what is your favorite? They truly dene what kind of person I am. I am surrounded by people who are passionate and have the same interests as I do which isn’t always true with organizations. I can serve as a leader and as a friend to many different people, and there are opportunities available for me to grow as a leader and as an individual in agriculture. Tell us your best experience during your time in these activities/organizations. My best experience has either been getting the opportunity to be nominated as a vice-president for our district ofcer FFA team, or the opportunity my family had to breed and raise the best bred and owned Holstein at the 2015 Iowa State Fair.

What’s your favorite social media? Instagram. I follow a lot of my fellow dairymen and get the opportunity to see other people’s facilities and cattle which I love. What are your career aspirations? I am in love with math. I hope to be an actuary. Actuaries look at previous statistics and calculate risks based on the past for insurance companies. Luckily, I can work with people in the agriculture industry as well. What is something you’ve learned from being involved in these activities/ organizations? I’ve learned how many

different views on agriculture there are in today’s society. This allows me to stand strong on views in modern agriculture and helps me have evidence to support my reasoning for standing where I stand.

Who do you look up to? My father and my grandfather. They are both very hardworking, loving and supportive individuals. They are the two whom have taught me the most about dairy cattle. I have been inspired to work hard and push through any adversity that I must face. Tell us something about yourself that many people don’t know. One of the biggest turning points in my life was when I competed at the national 4-H judging contest in Louisville, Ky., my freshman year. I traveled with members of the Iowa State dairy judging team and trained along with them to gain valuable experience. This opportunity made me a better person from public speaking to judging cattle and making friends. Tell us some of your duties on the farm. On the farm, I enjoy milking, and when I am able to, being a part of daily chores. I assist with registering calves and helping select bulls to use in our breeding program. If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be and how would you change it? The people starving in the world. I see how technology has changed so fast in my short lifetime. I feel that if everyone’s efforts were concentrated in the right direction and with the same goals in mind, it would be one giant step to take on this problem.

DAIRY CALENDAR The 6th annual Rod Nilsestuen Legacy Event will address “Leadership in an Uncertain Agricultural Economy” presented by Douglas Wilson, CEO of Cooperative Resources International (CRI) on Monday, March 27, at 2 p.m. in the Kinnickinnic Theater in the University Center at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The event is free and open to the public. Wilson has been a leader in the agriculture industry for over 46 years. CRI is a holding cooperative with subsidiaries dedicated to cattle genetics and reproductive service (Genex), agricultural testing (AgSource Cooperative Services) and advanced assisted reproduction technologies and biotechnology (MOFA Global). Wilson has received several awards and recognitions in the agricultural eld, among them the UW-River Falls Distinguished Agriculturalist Award. Nilsestuen, who earned his undergraduate degree at UW-River Falls, was the Wisconsin Secretary of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection at the time of his death in July 2010. He is remembered as a proud steward of sustainable agriculture and a leader in the national cooperative movement who strove to balance the needs of sustainable land use with the maximization of agricultural production. Nilsestuen worked to nd common ground on topics like the power of cooperatives, farmland conservation, the future of rural America and the increased pressure on agriculture to feed the world. The Rod Nilsestuen Fund was established by friends, family, and colleagues, and several land conservation and cooperative organizations, and is part of the Ralph K. Morris Foundation, an organization that shares Nilsestuen’s dedication to cooperatives and leadership development. For more information, email vanessa.luther@uwrf.edu or call 715-425-4383.

Payment can be made the day of the event. Betty Berning, Extension Educator shares, “Finding and keeping employees is a challenge for agricultural employers. We hear about this issue often. Farmers are also concerned about employee safety and managing employee risk on their operation. This program will cover all of these topics. Participants will leave with ideas on how to attract and retain employees. We’ll also spend some time on talking about how an employee handbook can help retain employees, increase employee safety, and manage a farm’s risks.” The Women in Ag Network offers more information Turn to CALENDAR | Page 23
