From Our Side Of The Fence

Dairy Star • Saturday, April 26, 2014 • Page 15

A) How many acres do you have and how do you plan to use those acres? B) How will last year’s crop year affect this year’s cropping plans for your dairy? C) How have the crops you’ve planted in your career changed and why did you make those changes? D) When do you think you’ll get in the eld? Explain. E) How do you think this year’s growing season will go? F) What’s the earliest and latest you’ve ever got in the eld? G) Tell us about your farm and plans for your dairy this year.

When do you think you’ll get in the eld? Art Hoffman Theilman, Minn. Wabasha County 125 cows

Tim Pieper Lonsdale, Minn. Rice County 420 cows

A) We farm 200 tillable acres, which includes 90 acres of corn, 46 acres of oats seeded with alfalfa and 64 acres of established hay.

A) We have 966 acres and plan to have 591 acres of corn, 133 acres of oats and alfalfa, 129 acres of established alfalfa and 113 acres of soybeans.

B) I don’t think last year will affect this year’s crop. I’m just worried about running out of hay. C) All of our machinery wore out and didn’t get replaced, so now about 90 percent of our eld work is custom hired. We used to make all wet corn, but with the number of cows and the limited acres we have, we now use it for corn silage or earlage. We also now make balage out of oats instead of dry bales. The alfalfa is now mostly haylage, and not as much dry hay as it used to be. This will also be the second year we plant winter rye. We hope to chop it to use for the youngstock. We will plant corn after the winter rye has been taken off the elds. There isn’t a lot of land in the area to rent or buy so we have to get the most out of the few acres we have. D) Hopefully by the week of April 28 we will be in the eld. We have clay ground and a lot of hillsides. We can’t get on those areas too fast. E) I hope it warms up and stays warm. I hope we’ve gotten through the drought cycle. There’s plenty of moisture out there. We can hope for a good year. F) The earliest was in 2012 when we started planting in late March. It went from one extreme to the next because last year, 2013, was the latest. We didn’t start planting corn until June 8. G) My wife, Karen, and I have a daughter, Amanda, and a son, Tyler. We have one part-time milker, Becky Gilsdorf. This year we plan to build a heifer shed and bring all our heifers home. For the past 20 years, our heifers have been custom raised.

B) It hasn’t really affected it that much. All the acres of alfalfa we have were seeded last year. About 50 acres we will take off a rst crop and then plant corn (those 50 acres were counted as corn acres in the questions above). Half of our alfalfa last year was affected by winter kill. Right now, we’re feeding more corn silage and soy hulls. We had a lot of carryover feed from 2012 so that’s what saved us. C) Since I rst started farming, corn has changed. There were no BT traits, roundup ready gene or rootworm traits. Now corn has all three of these traits. This new corn yields a little higher and the standability is a little better. I also don’t have to use as much insecticide. We are also planting soybeans this year, which we didn’t do last year. We might look into roasting our own versus buying. D) Hopefully, by about April 21 we will be in the elds at least to plant oats and then go right into corn. It’s just about dry enough now. A few of our neighbors have planted their oats. E) Hopefully it will go better than last year. It all depends on what Mother Nature decides to give us. The alfalfa is starting to look nice. F) The earliest we’ve been in the eld was in the early 2000s when we were planting oats by March 26 and we injected manure by the end of February. The elds were dry by then. Last year was denitely the latest. We had 240 acres of corn planted by May 17, but we didn’t nish until July 3. G) I farm together in partnership with my parents, Ray and Bridget, along with ve of my siblings – Chrissy Duhme, Brian, Nick, Dan and Tracy. I have two sisters, Beth and Maize, who don’t work on the family farm and two other sisters, Maria and Emily, who are still in school. We raise all our heifers and bulls are sold at two weeks. This winter, we just got done building a calf barn for animals from two months old to about seven months old. This summer, we are going to build a bunker for earlage. Next year, we are going to look into the possibility of a different parlor.

Corwin Van Veldhuizen Rock Rapids, Iowa Lyon County 220 cows A) We farm about 500 acres. The majority of it will be in corn, but we always have about 120 acres of alfalfa. We also have some grassland. B) We won’t be making any changes from last year. We will do some double cropping of rye and barley followed by corn for silage to help with our forage supply. C) We never used to do any double cropping, but now we do it on a regular basis. Crop yields have increased dramatically over the years. There once was a time when we thought 120 to 130 bushel corn would be tough to beat. D) We have already been in the eld for a while. We nished planting our barley on April 10 and started planting corn on April 21. E) Nobody can predict that; there are never any two years that are alike. We have to leave it in the Lord’s hands. F) The earliest was when we had our small grain planted by March 28. The latest was last year, when we planted our double cropped corn following rye on June 14. It turned out very good though, with a silage yield of 27 tons per acre. G) I farm with my wife, Stephanie, and our three kids, Tyler (14), Shelby (10) and Trevor (7). Our nephews, Kyle and Keith, also work on our farm. We put up a new 145-cow free stall facility in 2012. We really like that new barn, which has curtain sidewalls and is bedded with ground limestone. Our plans for this year are to stay the same and improve on what we have. We also plan to take the kids walleye shing once in a while this summer.

“... less stress... more comfort... better milk-out.” — Abby Keizer

ABBY and KATIE KEIZER, DELAVAN, WISCONSIN KEIZER DAIRY FARM — 100 cows — 80 lbs/cow/day — SCC 60,000 High quality milk production is a priority at the Keizer family’s dairy farm near Delavan, Wisconsin, where Dave and Carol Keizer’s daughters Abby and Katie are the fourth generation. Abby does much of the herd management responsibilities, and she reports that they milk 100 cows with an 80-lb herd average and SCC of 60,000.

“They just do so much better with Udder Comfort in the fresh cow routine.

“Udder Comfort™ removes swelling so our heifers do better. It softens udders better than anything. More comfort means much better milk-out,” she says.

Quality Udders Make Quality Milk

“We don’t have to keep putting the milking machine back on because they milk out so smoothly. Softening the udder relieves stress after calving so the transition into milking doesn’t drag them down.

“We make sure to put it on all udders after each milking for the first few days after calving. I know it is the best product out there because when I am putting it on the udders, I can literally feel the difference.”

Keep the milk in the system 1.888.773.7153 1.613.652.9086 uddercomfort.com Call to locate a distributor near you. For external application to the udder only after milking, as an essential component of udder management. Always wash and dry teats thoroughly before milking.

DeLaval Clover™ Liner The shape of things to come “I was using a mouthpiece vented liner which caused problems with squawking and teat end health. After switching to the DeLaval Clover liner and Della Barrier teat dip, I Unique patented* technology started receiving premiums from my local creamery. The teat end health of our cows is better than it’s ever been. You can actually hear the radio or have a conversation in the parlor because there isn’t any squawking with the DeLaval Clover liners. Not only have these liners made me money, but my wife is happier knowing that the herd is milking comfortably. I would sell the cows before going back to a mouthpiece vented liner!” The large, rounded corners keep the milk flowing and the thin side walls optimize the teat massage.

Dairy promotion is dairy princesses’ main task

Across Minnesota in recent weeks, our county American Dairy Associations have been crowning their local dairy princesses. In Iowa, dairy promotion groups are holding banquets and doing the same. And in South Dakota, we just selected another state dairy princess. Regardless of how and where it’s done, a dairy princess coronation is a fun time for local dairy enthusiasts and an exciting event for the young women and their families. But it’s really after the celebration that counts for the dairy industry as a whole, because the crown and banner is simply a tool with which we can reach out to the people who By Seena Glessing buy what we produce. A dairy prinMidwest Dairy Assoc. cess title comes with both great opportunity and great responsibility. Becoming a dairy princess, usually fresh out of high school or in the rst year or two of college, is not without its challenges. Dairy farmers like my husband and me contribute signicant money to the dairy checkoff with the expectation that those funds will help grow dairy sales and reinforce consumer condence. As part of that, we hold up our dairy princesses as examples of all that’s good and wholesome about dairy farming and the people who choose to do it. And in the case of state dairy princesses, we place them in the media spotlight and depend on them to perform in a way that reinforces dairy’s credibility. It requires a time commitment, communication skills and personal responsibility. That’s why Midwest Dairy invites dairy princesses to attend our Minnesota promotion workshop in May, and our Iowa dairy princess workshop in June. The title comes with tools. The workshops Midwest Dairy will host include sessions on how to be a dairy champion in media interviews and public presentations. Participants receive background on what consumers would like to hear about dairy farming and dairy products. They learn how to use social media to tell their dairy story, and what resources Midwest Dairy offers to help them with their appearances throughout the year. In Minnesota, a weekend format also allows for improving classroom presentation skills, and of course choosing the next 12 Princess Kay nalists. The North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa state dairy princesses will also participate. This year, the participants in our May weekend will enjoy a kickoff presentation from Greg Peterson of the farm boy group that’s made itself a YouTube sensation, the Peterson Brothers. We’re excited, and I think the dairy princesses will be, too. It’s hard for busy young women to commit to a weekend or even a full day in their busy lives, let alone a full year of carrying out a dairy princess role. We wish every single young woman eligible to participate in the dairy princess program would do so, and every single local dairy princess would attend the workshops we’ve planned. What they’ll discover is an opportunity to boost their own personal skills for everyday life. Perhaps even more, they’ll realize the unique opportunity they’ve been given because of their connection to dairy. Seena Glessing is a consultant for Midwest Dairy Association who implements the dairy princess programs in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. She is also an agriculture education teacher at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School. Seena was a nalist for Princess Kay of the Milky Way in 1999. She and her husband, Dan, and their four children along with Dan’s parents are dairy farmers from Waverly, Minn.
