2 The Northern Horizon, May 9, 2014

The way we remember Elaine Anselmi Staff Writer As she reads through the yellowing newspaper cut-outs and typed pages that tell the stories of her father and halfbrother’s lives, Monyeen Ollenberger has a few stories of her own. At 82 years old, Monyeen has lived her whole life in the Peace Country; first in North Rolla where, as the daughter of a rodeo pioneer, she grew up in the height of the Yeagers Rodeo. Her father, John Yaeger was born in Black Hills, North Dakota and immigrated to the region bringing the rodeo lifestyle with him. Two years ago Monyeen was recognized with a plaque for her family’s contribution to rodeo in the region – she wasn’t much of a horse person, although she rode to school everyday. John Yaeger was a true rodeo pioneer, settling a farm in North Rolla where he advertised a job for a farm cook. Monyeen’s mother Arthetta Davis responded to the advertisement in Grande Prairie. “She got it and she had my brother,” says Monyeen – her halfbrother Danny Martin was born in the United States, the youngest of Arthetta and her first husband William Martin. Arthetta moved to Canada

with Danny after divorcing her husband; he would eventually choose to take the Yaeger name. Monyeen’s neighbour helped her put her father and brother’s stories on paper and she has many copies, one of each that she hands over and says I have to read. John Yaeger, along with his two brothers, established a freighting company and took on a contract with the Hudson Bay Company in 1915, hauling supplies to Fort Nelson. The Yaeger Brothers Freighting Outfit continued on with contracts until 1922 and the month-long trips on horseback were far from easy. “He told me the story: it was 73 below when they crossed Nig Creek and he slept in Spruce bows and it was cold, 73 below,” she said. “He wanted my children to all see it, so I got busy and I got somebody.” While her father was farming and freighting, Monyeen’s mother also took a job in Watson Lake, Yukon. “She took a job for $6 a day, baking 600 pies a day,” says Monyeen. A street in Watson Lake still bears Arthetta’s name. Monyeen continued school until Grade 12, while her brother took a different path – he was the wild one.

Danny Yeager was Monyeen’s half brother and the two grew up on the North Rolla farm where their father competed in the rodeo and along with his brothers supplied the livestock for some of the earliest stampedes. Many would come out to the rodeo events and Monyeen says it was lifestyle that attracted Danny. “I only had one brother,” says Monyeen, and although he died young, at the age of 32, they were very close. “My dad taught him and he rode, my dad got a letter from the rodeo association in Rose Prairie about Danny coming up to ride,” says Monyeen. “My dad said to him ‘if you buck off that horse don’t come crying to me’.” Monyeen says Danny was nine years old at the time and he rode the horse for 16 seconds. There was no prize money, but everyone at the event put into a collection and Danny took home $185. “He bought himself a cowboy hat and bought you a doll,” adds in Calvin Ollenberger, Monyeen’s son who she now lives with. She nods, remembering the time and says she didn’t have things like dolls back then, there was nowhere to buy them. Danny was four years older than Monyeen and left home at 13 years old to follow the rodeo circuit. “He was in Peace River in 1946 and he took the all around cowboy championship – he was only 18 at the time,” says Monyeen. Danny was one of few to ride Teepee Creek Terror, which he did in 1956 for $100 according to Monyeen’s recounted story. His friends had also bet him another $350 that he would not be able to ride the untamable horse, but he did. “My dad nearly had a fit when we were down at Teepee Creek,” says Monyeen. “They hauled [Danny] away to the hospital and they wouldn’t let my dad go in the ambulance.” The horse bucked Danny off eventually and rolled on him but he came out of it, he also came out of nearly a year laid up in Kamloops with tuberculosis.

Monyeen Ollenberger has lived 82 years in the of a rodeo pioneer.

Despite the illness, Danny made it back home to see their father’s last rodeo ride at 65 years old. “My brother came up from Kamloops and watched my dad riding his bucking horse,” says Monyeen. “He came to George Graham’s place and he looked me up and down and said that he wanted to be at the Yaeger Rodeo of East Doe River.” Although his career was brief, Danny became a legendary bush pilot in his late twenties with a number of crashes to validate his status. In 1959 he crash landed through a forest, stripping off both wings and eventually coming to rest upside against a tree – the men got away from the plane before the fuel tanks exploded. Growing up trapping, Danny recognized the land and led the way for

four days to a cabin where they borrowed a saw to build a raft, heading to the Dundedive River. They headed down the river to the

Liard and on to Franceway Indian Village where they were eventually picked up. Monyeen says she only flew with Danny the one time, out of Doe River and into Dawson Creek. A shock came to the family when, after numerous close calls and storied crashes – Danny plunged into the Peace River in 1962, just north of Dawson Creek. His passenger escaped by kicking out a window but Danny was pinned in his seat and drowned. “My brother attempted to amputate his own leg to free himself,” says Monyeen. Danny did a great deal of work with well-known Fort Nelson outfitter Robert Keen, who would remain a good friend of the family after Danny’s death. “Bobby Keen flew his outfit down at the funeral,” Monyeen says. On hearing of Danny’s death, Monyeen says Keen called down to them and asked her when her mother would be returning home from Watson Lake. “I said she would arrive tomorrow,” says Monyeen. “He said, ‘I’m going to give her some money’ and he wrote her out a cheque for $3,000 to help with the funeral but then he paid for it all anyway.” Calvin says there were about 800 people at Danny’s funeral, but it was before he was born. “I took my two older kids and we went to the graveyard and Keen and those airplanes circled,” says Monyeen.

RELENTLESS ON WEEDS. SAFE ON WHEAT. ™ FLUSHAFTERFLUSH CONTROL. With EVEREST® 2.0, no grower has to sacrifice yield or crop safety in order to control weeds in wheat. EVEREST 2.0 Herbicide, the new standard for grass control in wheat, has advanced safener technology built in to provide peace of mind while delivering long-lasting control of green foxtail, wild oats and key broadleaf weeds. FLUSH AFTER FLUSH™ CONTROL LEADS TO BETTER YIELDS In University of Saskatchewan field trials, researchers found that regardless of conditions, EVEREST 2.0 delivered Flush after flush™ control of wild oats and green foxtail with no risk of injury symptoms. The crop was able to grow without adverse effects, thanks to the super selectivity of EVEREST 2.0 on all varieties of spring and durum wheat. “We like that EVEREST 2.0 gives customers a wide application window that lets you spray at your earliest convenience, regardless of weather conditions,” says Brandon Funk of Rolla Ag Services Ltd. “Spraying early provides the best weed control, and with EVEREST 2.0, young wheat has the best chance to become

established and reach its top potential yield. And at the same time, if the rains come and the crop advances, EVEREST 2.0 is still safe to apply.” BEST-IN-CLASS CONTROL OF GROUP 1 RESISTANT GRASSY WEEDS More and more, spring wheat growers in Western Canada are plagued with Group 1 resistant grassy weeds. As a Group 2 herbicide, EVEREST 2.0 is the best option for growers struggling with Group 1 resistance. It is the only group 2 herbicide that provides Flush after flush control with unsurpassed crop safety.

The Northern Horizon, May 9, 2014

Report revealed that the best agricultural land in the province decreased by 20,000 hectares since the ALR was introduced in 1974, while 72,000 hectares of secondary or unclassified land was added – mostly in northeast BC. Much of that land has few, if any frost free days. The Land Commission determined in 2003 that quarter sections (65 hectares/160 acres) are not viable agricultural units despite the original subdivisions of

the Peace River Block, for agriculture in the early 1900’s using that survey unit. A farmer with a section or a half section as a single parcel cannot subdivide into quarter sections. Farm families cannot subdivide off 5 or 10 acres for family members, and non-farm use is restricted. In reality, there are portions of larger parcels that do not contribute to the farm and are not suitable for agriculture and would be better subdivided off and sold for resi-

dential use. Farm families wanting to have a business on their land to supplement their farm income cannot do so. It only makes sense to allow rural land owners to have oil and gas servicing businesses on their land when oil and gas operations are all around them. Otherwise, it means service trucks, water trucks, and vac trucks are driving long distances from Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, or just across the border in Alberta. Neither the oil and gas industry, nor those landowners wishing to have service businesses on their agricultural land are permanently removing land from agriculture. There are remediation standards for the oil and gas industry which could easily be applied to businesses on agricultural land. When oil and gas comes to an end, and it will – the land can be remediated and returned to agriculture much more easily than land that has been taken out of agriculture for a shopping centre or a suburban subdivision.

Meanwhile, without the ability to subdivide off small acreages or even quarter sections, rural communities are becoming depopulated and schools closing. Contrast this with Saddle Hills County just across the Alberta border where rural communities are a vibrant mix of agriculture, small residential acreage, light industry and commercial use. The ALC has created an artificial shortage of land for light industrial use. In the South Peace in particular, this has artificially inflated values of non-ALR land, and increased the number of oil and gas servicing companies based in Alberta operating in BC. Northeast BC residents are being denied the opportunity to participate in the local economy. The Citizens for Agricultural Land Reform support Bill 24 and equitable treatment of agricultural land owners in British Columbia. To learn more, visit

Breakfast Brief

Mixed Guidance

"Inequality is the root of social evil."

Heading into May, planting activity continues to be slowed down by wet and cold weather across North America. While most of the U.S. Midwest receives erratic shots of rainfall, dry conditions continue to affect the U.S. Plains, the main region for winter wheat crops. Recent crop tours in Kansas and Oklahoma are putting this year’s crop average yield at around 33 and 18.5 bushels per acre respectively. Aggregately, this would translate to an output significantly down from last year with less than 260 million bushels produced in Kansas and less than 66 million bushels in Oklahoma. These numbers could fall even further if the area doesn’t get some good rains in the next two weeks (AKA many fields could simply be written off). Conversely, while good rains in the Eastern U.S. Cornbelt have slowed planting progress, the reality is, the soil moisture conditions are excellent. This in mind, the bearishness of another large corn crop could likely offset some bullishness of a poor US winter wheat crop.

It’s possible that the delivery of these purchases to the E.U. could be delayed even further as roughly two-thirds of Lake Superior is still covered in ice, making movement of grain from Thunder Bay to the St. Lawrence Seaway extremely slow-going. Currently there’s 20 ships sitting at the Port of Thunder Bay waiting to load grain and while volume is expected pick up over the next three weeks, ice-cutter escorts are still required. While ships may be slow getting out of Canada, they are coming into the U.S. full of Brazilian soybeans. As credit restrictions are forcing Chinese buyers to default on South American soybeans, a lot of these loads are being rerouted to the U.S. (two cargoes so far with another six ships in transit or getting loaded). Thus, the trade is expecting 2013/14 U.S. soybean imports to surpass 2.3 million tonnes (U.S.D.A.’s estimate is 1.77 million). Food for thought: there could be demand for more soybeans south of the Canadian border not only this year but for the foreseeable future as America’s demand for the oilseed seems to outpacing its ability to allocate its production efficiently. To growth, Brennan Turner President,



Keeping with this theme, major wheat producers around the world aren’t feeling the same problems as the U.S. winter wheat crop & that growing conditions are mostly good (especially in the E.U. with some good rains in the forecast). Speaking of the E.U., it appears they’re back in business of buying Canadian flax just five years removed from the Triffid issue in 2009. Between China and the U.S. buying about 400,000 tonnes, pulse company Legumex Walker is expecting the European bloc of countries to purchase about 200,000 tonnes of the oilseed. Accordingly, this potentially could put this marketing year’s flax nending stocks below 100,000 tonnes. No surprise then that 2014/15 flax acres are expected to increase in both the U.S. (+80 per cent to 326,000) and Canada (+66 per cent to 1.72 million).

Brennan Turner is originally from Foam Lake, SK, where his family started farming the land in the 1920s.

Reaping More than You Sow: Three Keys to Protecting Your Farm and Maximizing Your Profits The business of modern farming goes around the clock, but the springtime is particularly busy. With this time of year comes a wide array of responsibilities, including everything from staffing and planting to planning distribution. And while you may not be able to entirely predict things like the weather or crop yield, you can plan

for the unexpected and make the most out of your bottom line. Here’s how: Ensure you are protected A recent Western Financial Group study showed that only onequarter of Canadians who live on a farm say they have purchased farm insurance in the past year. Do you have the right coverage? “Given the

nature of farming, there are so many things to think about when it comes to insurance,” explains Jennifer Appleby, Branch Manager for Western Financial Group in Dawson Creek. “Is your property covered against inclement or extreme weather? Do you have an adequate amount of protection on all of the farm implements? Are

These are very important questions and the best way to answer them is by consulting your broker.” Look after your employees You do your best to create a safe work environment; however, farming comes with its own unique dangers, not just for you but for the people in your employ. Your employees – both full-time and seasonal – are one of the keys to your business’s success, so it’s vital to make sure they have all of the necessary coverage in case they are hurt on the farm.

taxes. The Canadian Revenue Agency has many policies in place that can help farmers. Interestingly, even if you’re not a full-time farmer, you may still qualify for certain tax breaks, provided you engage in things like racehorse maintenance, beekeeping, or even raising fish. Do your due diligence and see if you qualify for any additional breaks. Whatever you farm, you work hard all year long, looking after details great and small. Part of that should entail ensuring that you safeguard yourself, your property, and your employees against the unexpected and you do all you can to make the most of your revenue. That starts with knowing where you stand.

Continued from Page 3 There were many newspaper accounts of Danny’s fatal crash, ranging from local coverage to the Edmonton Journal – mostly reporting his age to be 38 years old, which Monyeen has crossed out in her clippings and written 32 over top. Calvin points out that Danny lived a lot in his short 32 years. Monyeen was married young at 20 years old after meeting her husband Frank John Ollenberger in a restaurant in Dawson Creek. She says, “He came up and introduced himself.” Prodded by Calvin as to whether it was love at first sight, she says not quite, “It took a while.” Monyeen worked as a secretary at Rolla Traditional School for 25 years, and for two years as a teacher’s aid at Canalta Elementary – she moved to Dawson Creek in 1990 after her husband passed away in 1989. Monyeen retired when she was 59 years old and moved back to Rolla to be closer to family – she has five children, four daughters and a son, Calvin. They live out off of the Old Alaska Highway now but Monyeen says she still remembers and goes back to visit Rolla. “Oh yeah, we go back there and see people,” she says. Monyeen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease but much of her family’s story has been told by local historian Dorthea Calverley, as well as by herself. Some pieces might now be missing and years later, some details might have changed but at least the story has been told.

Spring break up rodeo all wrapped up Saddle Bronc was one of the seven events that took place at the two-day rodeo competition in Dawson Creek from April 25-26. BYRON HACKETT - STAFF WRITER APRIL 28-2014

It took Pouce Coupe native Clayton Moore just 4.3 seconds to get the whole crowd at the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek on their feet Saturday night. In a thrilling Steer Wrestling performance at the first annual Spring Break Up Rodeo, Moore gave the sparse crowd at the two-day rodeo something to cheer about. Moore was happy with his ride and the ovation he received. “I’ve always had a lot of luck when I come home for the summer rodeo and whatnot. It’s always treated me well. I seem to compete well in front of everybody that I know, I wish there was one every week,” he said. Moore had to share top prize with Chance Butterfield who had a 4.3 second ride on day one. They will each take home $1,616. Moore said he usually heads south this time of year but was attracted by the three events in one weekend and was satisfied with the way the event turned out. “It seems to have gone over really good. I’m sure they have found some things that they probably want to work on for next year. Normally this time of year I am in California going to some rodeos and it worked out there were three rodeos up here in Canada. So I decided to stay up here and it was a good week and I’m glad to finish it off here at home,” he said.

Nanton, Alberta resident Logan Bird won the overall weekend TieDown Roping event with a time of 9.9 seconds. He won $1,729. He said he was impressed with the facilities and the interest from the fans. “It’s really nice, I was surprised when I came and looked around. I thought it looked really nice, good place for a rodeo,” he said about the Encana Events Centre. “The crowd was pretty loud out there tonight.” The three event weekend was part of the reason president of the Dawson Creek Exhibition President said they choice this particular weekend to put on the event, although overall the attendance wasn’t what the group was hoping for. “The crowds have not been good. There’s no point in us thinking they have because they certainly haven’t. That’s been a real disappointment for us because for us we have 14 national and Canadian champions competing here. We take the top 24 in the world in each event. I don’t know when that has ever happened in Dawson Creek,” she explained. “When you put some of the top riders and top stock in North America and a venue like this you think that the people are going to come.” Having seven different rodeo events and with some of the top riders in Canada and the United States in town, Anderson wasn’t entirely sure why the attendance was so low, but she said the association would go back to the drawing board for next year’s event.

“Now we have to go back to the drawing board and figure out why. For us in a venue like this 12 to 1,500 isn’t enough for us. To be able to do this we have to be having 2,000 to 2,500 every night,” she said. Patterson was quick to point out the support from sponsors, volunteers and even the venue was excellent. “The sponsorships have been overwhelming, that part has been tremendous. All our volunteers are great and we are so fortunate to have this venue. This venue is just great,” she said. One part of the event that Patterson was pleased with was the auction for teams where they sold more than 160 plates for a dinner. “Our team dinner, we do a team draft where one person from each of the seven disciplines compete against each other for points and money. That was phenomenal. We had 160 to dinner and had a great auction and draft. Everything is great except getting the people here. We are hoping that will come,” she said. The seven events included were Bareback riding, Tie-down roping, Saddle Bronc, Steer wrestling, Ladies Barrel racing, Steer riding and Bull riding. Dusty LaValley from Benzanson, Alberta took home the bareback title collecting $1,981. Dustin Flundra was the Saddle Bronc winner for the weekend, taking home $2,010. Todd Chotowetz was the winner of the main event for the weekend, the bull-rider was able to claim $1,952 with the win. Rene LeClercq from Holden, Alberta was the Ladies Barrel Racing Cham-

pion winning $1,487 with a time of 14.36 seconds. Nick Tetz had the top score of 79 in the Steer Riding competition and took home a prize of $533. Although the turnout wasn’t exactly what Anderson had hoped for and believes some confusion played a part in fans missing out on the event, she looks forward to trying a spring rodeo again next season. “In Canada spring rodeos are not a really popular thing because of the weather and most of our venues are outdoors. So we don’t have a lot of places like (Encana Events Centre) in our country,” she said. “We’re hopeful. We know our big rodeo in the fall with a big agriculture fair and chuck wagon races, it doesn’t change, but this is something a little bit different. And something we want to keep trying, we are going to try it another year for sure. See how it goes and see if people learn about it.”

A new puppy?



Deciding to add a new puppy to your family is always an exciting time. Picking the right breed can be one of the more exciting aspects of getting a new dog, but it can become overwhelming as there are over 175 Canadian Kennel Club registered breeds, and upwards of 400 breeds (both registered and non-registered), not to mention the infinite number of crosses and mixed breeds. This article is more geared towards pure bred dogs, but the same principles hold true for mixed breeds. If you are looking into getting a mixed breed from the SPCA, research the breeds it is crossed with, or if certain characteristics of certain breeds appeal to you and fit your lifestyle, look for crosses of those breeds at the SPCA. A good first step is to research the breed group (s) you are interested in. Groups are categorized by initial intended purpose, for example breeds can fall into a hunting group, sporting group, toy group, etc. Once you have decided which group will best suit your lifestyle it is time to consider the breeds within that group. For example, if you are not an outdoorsy/active type, dogs that fall into the sporting or hunting group may not be the best choice as they require a lot of exercise and activity. This is important because if a dog requires a certain amount of activity and is not receiving it, there is a good chance it will develop destructive behaviours or other behavioural issues. There are some great resources out there to explore when you are contemplating breeds. “The Right Dog for You” is a book by Daniel F. Tortora. It charts 16 traits and ranks them from very low to very high, like indoor activity, outdoor activity, vigor, behavioral constancy, dominance to strange and familiar people, territoriality, emotional stability, sociability with family/ children/strangers, learning-rate, obedience, problem solving, watchdog /guard dog ability. Another book, “The Perfect Match” by Chris Walkowicz has more of a written style and comments on size, color, protection, energy, life expectancy, children, other animals, abilities, shedding/grooming, health issues, etc. Certain breeds definitely have predispositions to certain personality types, activity levels and health conditions. My recommendation would be to narrow it down to several breeds within a certain group category that appeal to you and to research them thoroughly. Important breed characteristics to consider are size, coat type, the original breed purpose, and temperament. These characteristics will determine how much space you need for your dog, how much grooming will be required, how much instinctive behaviour your dog will have (ie – barking, protection, herding, etc.), obedience needs, level of independence or attachment, and aggressive/passive nature. Another consideration is breed predisposition to certain health conditions. Although it can be difficult to predict the health/medical future of a particular dog,


certain diseases are more prevalent within certain breeds of dogs. For example Dachshunds are prone to spinal problems/disc disease, Dobermans and Boxers are prone to certain types of heart disease, retrievers and shepherds are prone to hip dysplasia. Smaller breeds like Chihuahuas and Shih Tzu’s or other smooshy faced breeds (brachycephalics) like boxers and pugs are more prone to dental disease….the list goes on! This does not mean that you shouldn’t get a goofy, loveable boxer because it might develop a heart problem or have dental issues; it just means that you should be aware of the diseases that they are prone to developing. As a result of being well informed on your pet’s breed, you will ensure that your pet can live a healthier, happier life and you can reduce stress for yourself in the future should any issues arise. Once you have chosen a specific breed, investigate certain breeders in the area or visit your local SPCA. Go and visit the puppy before you make your decision. Play with them and spend time getting to know their personality. Are they shy, fearful, aggressive, outgoing…? If possible, ask to meet the puppy’s parents (this probably will not be possible if you are getting a puppy from the SPCA). Aggression has been identified to be a heritable trait, so an aggressive parent will likely have aggressive offspring. Enquire as to how often to puppies are handled, what kinds of things they have been exposed to, etc. In addition to this, make sure that if you are buying a pure bred dog that the parents have been tested for certain diseases that the breed is predisposed to. For example, if the breed is prone to hip dysplasia, the breeder should have the parent’s hips certified. There are other eye, ear and heart conditions that can also be tested for, and it again – depends on

the breed! Should you have any questions or concerns in making a decision about getting a new dog, please do not hesitate to contact the Dawson Creek Veterinary Clinic.

Beaver: Pest or protect

53’ Ground Load Livestock Trailer


Water … we can’t live without it. No substitute exists for this precious and beautiful resource, which has been scarce in Alberta at times. In the future, the flow of water may decline as we face a changing climate and what appears to be more seasonal variability in weather and precipitation patterns. With growing uncertainty about less snowpack in the mountains, earlier spring melting and runoff, and diminishing stream flow earlier in the summer; by late summer when we need water the most, it may be in short supply. Many people believe that water will be the new gold of the future. As the reality of a changing climate becomes ever more apparent, we will need to catch and store water more effectively. We’ve given water lots of advice on this issue, in the form of expensive dams and big reservoirs, but is that always the best solution? Have we overlooked a natural ally in our efforts to conserve and manage water? Maybe, consider our Canadian icon, the beaver! For more than 10,000 years, beaver have been building dams and storing water across the landscape. Historically, tens of millions of beaver were busy in nearly every water-shed across the North American continent. The cumulative effect of their ponds on water storage, both above and below ground, was enormous. In simple terms, more beaver on the landscape means more water supply.

that ponds with active beaver lodges had 9 times more water during droughts than ponds without dams. “In times of drought they [beavers] may be one of the most effective ways to mitigate wetland loss,” said Hood. “Some people believe climate is driving everything, but the presence of beaver has a dramatic effect on the availability of open water in an area. Beaver are helping to keep water in areas that would otherwise be dry.” The study, published recently in the online edition of Biological Conservation journal, also found that temperature, precipitation and other climate variables were much less important than beaver in maintaining open water areas in the wet-lands of the mixed-wood boreal forest in Alberta. In addition to impacting water quantity, beaver ponds contribute to an impressive list of valuable goods and services for humans - including cleaner sources of domestic water, more reliable water for irrigation and livestock, forage, opportunities for watching wildlife, hunting and fishing. Ponds trap and store tons of sediment which improves water quality downstream for people and livestock alike. This natural filtering and buffering of possible contaminants and recycling of excess nutrients (like phosphorus) assure cleaner water for all. And lastly, their ponds create diverse, productive and unique habitats for creatures great and small. This can enhance the biodiversity and connectivity of the overall landscape. Beaver dams and ponds check the velocity of streams and dissipate water energy laterally, creating speed bumps for streams. This decreases the risk (and r001744781

costs) of major flooding and slows erosion. Sediment captured by beaver ponds broadens stream valleys over time with rich deposits of soil and higher water tables to build productive riparian zones, wetlands, and meadows. There is a PHOTO COURTESY OF METRO diverse mosaic CREATIVE CONNECTION of vegetation, particularly willows in these areas, that protect and stabilize stream banks. Beaver ponds store surface water and recharge ground water. This increases water supply and releases water more steadily throughout the year - especially vital during droughts. Much of the stream water captured by ponds is stored under-ground in shallow aquifers and may re-enter the channel downstream. This keeps water temperatures cooler in summer and warmer in winter to the benefit of sport fish such as trout. In the 1800s, European fashion prized beaver pelts for hats, which spurred a westward wave of exploration as trappers searched for beaver. Excessive trapping eliminated beaver from most areas by the early 1900s. This was followed by intensive use of the land and drained watersheds. Without beavers, streams cut downward and some dried up, water tables dropped, woody vegetation disappeared and wild-life declined. The impacts on us have been considerable - including uncertain water flow, higher costs for water treatment and increased likelihood of erosion and flooding. Thanks to better management and reintroductions, beaver populations have rebounded over the past 50 years but only to 10-20% of their original numbers. Full recovery has been stymied … partly because we have not understood and appreciated the many services provided by beaver and the benefits for us. Life is all about water - a substance more precious than gold and likely more scarce as we move into a climatically uncertain future. With their ponds serving as natural water reservoirs, beaver can help

FCC Economic Update: A look at a possible template for the future Trans-Pacific Partnership FARM CREDIT CANADA MAY 2, 2014

by Jean-Philippe Gervais, chief agricultural econmist, Farm Credit Canada On April 7, 2014, Australia and Japan concluded an Economic Partnership Agreement providing preferential access in both markets. Japan agreed to reduce trade taxes on many Australian exports while Australia will allow greater access for Japanese manufactured goods – more specifically electronics and automobiles. This deal doesn’t directly involve Canada, yet it’s potentially extremely significant. Australia is the first major agricultural exporter to gain access to the Japanese economy. This trade agreement sends a clear message that Japan is willing to concede increased market access and lower tariffs for sensitive sectors such as agriculture. Under the EPA, Japan opens up access to Australian beef, pork, cheese, horticulture, dairy, wine and seafood exports. The specifics vary by sector and commodities. In the case of beef, the tariff reductions will be from 38.5 per cent to 19.5 per cent for frozen beef and to 23.5 per cent for fresh beef. Australia is also reported to have gained an additional 20,000 tonnes of duty-free access of cheese exports. Japan is a high-value market for agriculture exports and is the third largest economy in the world behind the United States and China with a population of nearly 128 million. Opening up the Japanese

border to agricultural trade is a major opportunity for countries like Australia. The conclusion of this free trade agreement is significant to Canada for two primary reasons. First, Australia competes directly with Canada in the export market for high-value agricultural products. Our most recent Ag Economist blog post details our trade environment with Japan. Second, the Australia-Japan EPA could confer a temporary advantage to Australia over Canada because of the preferential access conceded to Australia over commodities that are very important to Canadian agriculture. Japan is the second largest market for Canadian pork products accounting for 28 per cent of our exports. It’s the fourth largest market for Canadian beef products despite the tariff wall at its border. Japan is an important market for grain and oilseeds, accounting for 14 per cent of Canadian exports. Finally, it is the second largest market for Canadian greenhouse exports. We believe any Australian advantage may be short-lived. This deal signals Japan is willing to consider opening market access for agriculture commodities, a sort of template for future deals. And Canada is currently negotiating with Japan on two fronts: a bilateral trade deal as well as part of a multilateral effort to create an enlarged Trans-Pacific Partnership. Japanese president Abe and U.S. president Obama just finished an intense negotiation round to build a template for a future TPP. Progress towards a bilateral deal was reported for some commodities, but

hurdles remain, notably in terms of U.S. beef access to the Japanese market. Leadership from Japan and the U.S. would be all that is needed to let the dominoes fall and complete a TPP deal in the not-so-distant future. Completing a trade deal with Japan, either through a bilateral agreement or the TPP, would have major implications for Canadian agriculture. In the bilateral case, all of Canadian agriculture would benefit from increased market access. In the multilateral effort, which is the TPP, the treatment of sensitive products and the market access expansion will be critical to monitor. The last few years have certainly been a fertile period for trade agreements. Current trade negotiations, the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement with the European Union and the free trade agreement with South Korea will continue to change the landscape of market competition for agricultural producers and food processors in Canada.

In they come... out they go

It was “In they come ... out they go” at the regular cattle sale at Vold Jones Vold May 1st. The sales alley saw a good number of calves move through the building. Oh yes, to Rob who said that he would come and get me if we printed his picture - stop at McDonald’s first (a large black would be nice). ‘Since 1957’

John Deere adds Mulch On Demand™ deck to select Quiktrak™ stand-on commercial mowers The new 652R QuikTrak comes equipped with a Mulch On Demand deck Image of 652R QuikTrak with a Mulch On Demand deck CARY, North Carolina (April 17, 2014) – John Deere is continuing to meet the needs of its customers with the expansion of its Mulch On Demand (MOD) mower deck offering. The exclusive MOD is now available in the 2014 QuikTrak commercial mower lineup, which includes the 652R MOD and 652R EFI MOD models. The Mulch On Demand deck was previously only available in the John Deere ZTrak line. The John Deere Mulch On Demand deck allows an operator to switch between mulching and side discharging without leaving the mower. This saves cleanup time by keeping clippings off sidewalks and driveways and out of mulch beds. The QuikTrak MOD can be converted from a wide-open-side-discharge mode to a full-chambered mulching mode or any position in-between by holding down on the electric switch that is conveniently located on the dash. “The Mulch On Demand deck has proven capabilities that allow the operator to boost productivity and versatility in their commercial mowing operation,” said Chris Russell, John Deere product manager. “As the interest in stand-on mowers increases, it only made sense to integrate this industry-exclusive technology into the QuikTrak lineup. Now more commercial landscape contractors can enjoy the benefits of Mulch On Demand.” The 652R MOD features a commercial-quality


Two R Series models feature exclusive technology tested and proven in zero-turn machines

MXU 125 Case IH

Where are farmland values heading? by James Bryan, agricultural economics analyst, Farm Credit Canada Agricultural economists are said to seldom agree on things. The outlook for farmland values provides an excellent case in point. FCC released its annual Farmland Values Report last week. The national average farmland value increased 22 per cent, the highest increase FCC has ever reported. Large profit margins for crop production and continued low interest rates have driven the recent surge, mostly observed in the first half of last year. As we’ve noted before, the margins for the crop sector are expected to tighten. But there’s no consensus on what the future entails. Opinions diverge broadly, as outlined in these two separate outlooks on farmland markets. A Re/Max report states that despite a moderation of prices in the shortterm, the positive long-term outlook for Canadian agriculture will sustain a

“healthy” demand for farmland. Professors Baker, Boehlje & Langemeier from Purdue University (Indiana) conducted a study which urges more caution when it comes to farmland valuation. “Even though our data confirms the conventional wisdom that farmland has high returns, low risk, and is a good inflation hedge, the current [price/10-year average rental rate] ratio suggests this is not a good time to buy. Those purchasing farmland today should not ignore the prospects of “buyer’s remorse.” Although crop prices have rebounded from their recent lows, the drivers of this recovery may be short term; such as being a function of the situation in Ukraine. As 2014 progresses, I’d urge crop producers to be cautious about using recent returns to project future cash flow. What are you seeing in your area? View the most recent Ag Econmist Commentary here.

Late spring freezes seeding FARM CREDIT CANADA MAY 2, 2014

by Richard Kamchen A cold, wet and late Manitoba spring will delay the province’s farmers from seeding their crops. “Usually we like to target the May 1

timeframe for producers to be out in the field,” says Manitoba Agriculture cereal specialist Pam de Rocquigny. Manitoba experienced a long cold winter with plenty of snow. Much of that has melted, but farmers are still waiting for soil temperatures to warm up and for their fields to dry, De Roc-

quigny says. “If the rain will stop and the sun comes out and we get some warm temperatures, hopefully we’ll see those planters and seeders going fairly quickly,” she says. Farmers and the provincial department are also monitoring annual spring flooding. Manitoba issued a flood warning to producers in the Assiniboine Valley from the Shellmouth Reservoir, near the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, to Brandon, 214 kilometres west of Winnipeg. Approximately 200 kilometre of land along the river (approximately 30,000 acres) is flooded, and seeding may be delayed in the area, a provincial spokesperson says. Flooding also is taking place on Fisher River First Nation valley lands in the northern part of Manitoba’s Interlake region. Other areas, however, seem to be better off. “While there may be water on agricultural land in many parts of the province, most of it is starting to drain,” NATION/EDMONTON

Crashed Ice coming in 2015

The Red Bull Crashed Ice event in Edmonton next year could attract up to 80,000, Councillor Amarjeet Sohi says. The competition, involving groups of four skaters racing downhill on a curving course up to 600 metres long, will likely snake into the river valley near the Shaw Conference Centre. There will probably be a festival surrounding the three- or fourday event, probably being held in March 2015. “It’s one of the most … exciting and, yes, crazy sports in the world,” Sohi said. – Journal

says the spokesperson. “Of course, future weather will dictate the draining of agricultural lands.” Despite the likelihood of delayed planting operations, farmers in past years have demonstrated the ability to catch up. A late spring delayed seeding last year too. “Most guys were seeding by around May 10 and by the third week of May, there were a lot of acres that were in the ground,” de Rocquigny says. “Once conditions are right, producers can put a lot of seed into the ground in quick fashion.” Winter wheat has broken dormancy in the Pembina Valley Region of southern Manitoba but farmers will be waiting for better conditions to return to their fields to assess the crop’s condition. Most of the province experienced good snow cover, which would have provided insulation for the fall-seeded crop. Also favourable is that winter wheat was planted under good conditions last autumn.

Spring warm up for stored canola MAY 5, 2014 Storing canola through the summer? Storage experts recommend turning on aeration fans now to warm up stored canola to 5-10°C. Canola to be stored on farm through summer will be safer if warmed up before outside temperatures get hot. “The goal is to reduce the temperature differential between stored canola and the outside air,” says Angela Brackenreed, agronomy specialist with the Canola Council of Canada. “This reduces the amount of moisture movement within the bin, and can prevent the concentration of moisture that can lead to spoilage and heating.” Cold grain should be turned or aerated to raise the grain temperature to between 5°C and 10°C. Joy Agnew, a grain storage researcher with the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI), says now is a good time to warm up dry grain. “If you use air that is more than 10°C warmer than the grain, the air will lose its ability to hold its moisture as soon as it hits the cool grain. This means it will condense on the grain and possibly freeze — which would cause major airflow issues,” she says. Agnew recommends turning the grain after it has been warmed. “If possible, entirely empty the bin and put it into another aeration bin,” she says. “If this is not possible, pull out several loads and put them back on top of the same bin. The goal here is to try to mix the grain to help even out the temperature variations and help warm up the grain a bit more.” She recommends that stored canola remain below 15°C. The larger the bin, the greater the risk of spoilage if canola is not warmed. “Bins larger than 5,000 bushels are more susceptible to moisture migration because there

will be a greater temperature differential between the outer edge and the core of the bin,” Agnew says. Canola that went into the bin with moisture above 10 percent, even above eight percent, deserves extra attention this time of year. “Tough canola is at much higher risk, and it should be dried if it can’t be delivered right away,” Brackenreed says. A hot air dryer will do the job quickly. Natural air drying with aeration fans can also work, but the ideal conditions for this technique are when outside air temperature is higher than 15°C and humidity is lower than 65 percent. Agnew adds that canola dried with a hot air dryer should be cooled to 15°C for storage.

Dealers Association Announces 2014 Dealer’s Choice Award Recipients


Fenton, Mo. - The North American Equipment Dealers Association (NAEDA) has announced the recipients of its 2014 Dealer’s Choice Award.

No experience necessary. A BIG personality is mandatory. If you think you have the stuff, contact Alison at 250-782-4888 (ext. 120) or email

The NAEDA Dealer’s Choice Awards are determined from results of dealer evaluation data collected from the association’s annual Dealer Manufacturer Relations Survey. The survey asks dealers to evaluate the companies whose products they sell in key areas correlated to a dealer’s operational model. The Dealer’s Choice Award is designed to recognize those manufacturers who in the eyes of the dealers are doing an exceptional job of providing them with top-quality products, parts, services and support.

Butler ‘s

The recipients of the 2014 NAEDA Dealer’s Choice Awards are: Kubota Tractor Corporation, Vermeer Corporation and Scag Power Equipment.  “These companies are to be complemented for their efforts to excel and assist in the key areas related to the dealer’s business operations,” says Joe Dykes, NAEDA. “While these companies came out on top it should be noted that many of the companies evaluated by the dealers also rated extremely well.  There is always room for improvement and the companies that our dealers represent, for the most part, perform well above average according to the survey results,” says Dykes.

The Northern Horizon, May 9, 2014


Quebec: Riding like a local The thought of riding in Northeastern Quebec can be intimidating for those who do not speak French. The farther away from the larger centers you get, the more the locals speak French only on a day to day basis. As I would find out over the course of the next few days, that communication barrier is greater in our imagination than it is in reality. In Rivière-du-Loup, I took the ferry to Saint-Simeon. The day was glorious, the sunshine felt so good on my face and I was looking so forward to these next few days. I took in the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the vastness of it from the vantage point of the deck of the ferry. I marveled at the breeching Minke whales I saw off in the distance and excitement took hold. Francois was going to meet me at the ferry in Saint-Simeon and ride with me to l’Auberge des falaises in La Malbaie where I was to stay for the evening. In the morning, Francois and I would be riding to an Emu farm where I would be handed off to the Moto Saguenay Riding Club. I was going to be sharing the highway, the attractions, the history and the culture of their little piece of heaven called Saguenay Lac St Jean with local riders for three days. Then I was going to get to spend time with Francois Gariepy of Charlevoix Tourism and take in other aspects of the Charlevoix region that I have not experienced before. 6 days in these two regions, I just knew were not going to be enough! When the ferry docked at St. Simeon I rode off it, looking for Francois. It wasn’t long before I saw him waving and I pulled into the parking area where he was. After hugs and kisses on the cheeks, we jumped on the bikes and headed towards La Malbaie. Just a few moments outside of St. Simeon, we turned left onto a small road that almost looked like a driveway. We followed the curvy little path to the most beautiful boat launch area that has picnic tables and a pier that has been recently upgraded. There is a small Anglican Church not far from the boardwalk area that is

open all year round and the bay is a feeding ground for Beluga and Minke whales. After taking a few moments to admire the waterfalls and the view, we headed to the Boulangerie Pains D’exclamation. Filled with all sorts of baked goods and local delicacies, the smells in this shop were mouthwatering! I enjoyed an espresso and a piece of pie and the fabulous conversation with Francois and his lovely wife, Elizabeth, who joined us. Francois and I rode to L’Auberge des fallaise, my accommodations for the evening. After ensuring I was checked in, Francois headed off to his office to check up on things and I got unpacked and ready for supper. The rooms at L’Auberge des fallaise are comfortable, well appointed and offer magnificent views of La Malbaie. The Cloutier family has operated this property for generations and they take immense pride in their customer service. L’Auberge des fallaise offers a Nordique Spa with the most incredible views to relax by along with the ability to book massages! Their dining room is utterly fantastic, from the view to the menu and service, there is nothing lacking! After a fabulous meal with Francois, David Cloutier, the general manager came over to say hello, we all enjoyed dessert and coffee together. I headed to my room with a smile on my face; my God it was good to be here, to break bread with such wonderful people and let me tell you the food is simply divine! I enjoyed a jet tub and then settled down in the king sized bed for a wonderful and refreshing sleep. I was up nice an early and went to the spa to take in the pools, then headed for the dining room and the magnificent breakfast buffet. I opted for the crepes with real maple syrop and they were perfection! The service at L’Auberge des fallais has been spot on perfect both times I have been here. The staff works so very hard to ensure you feel cared for and looked after and they succeed at it very well indeed! I was packing my bike up as Francois rode up. In no time at all we were on our

way under skies that had become overcast. We were heading to Saint-Urbain and the Emu farm. The ride is only about 40 kilometers long, it takes you through the communities of Saint-Aimé-des-Lacs, Notre-Damedes-Monts, Saint-Hilarion before you arrive in Saint-Urbain. Four riders, four from the Club Moto Saguenay, greeted us and I was introduced to Gilles, Rejean, Denis and Francine. Over the course of the next three days, Gilles, Rejean and Francine would be a very big part of my days. We toured the largest Emu farm in Canada, which proved to be very interesting. With over 400 birds in various stages of growth, the Emu Farm gives you a really good look into the life and cycles of the Emu. Emus are a funny and inquisitive creature but they can also be very dangerous too. Here at the Emu Farm, the birds are raised for meat and cosmetics. In fact, every little bit of the bird that can be used to produce a product is. Not only is the meat served in restaurants regionally, but also it is sold in ready to eat meals and they offer jerky as well. The eggs are turned into magnificent art; the feathers are used in a variety of creations and the prized fat of the bird, that is ideal for so many purposes it is mind blowing, is rendered into cosmetics, skin care products, health products and more! The Emu is the second largest bird in the world and is native to Australia. Emu meat is very lean, 97% fat free and yet, it is very flavorful. I have eaten Emu before but I had no ideas about the healing properties of Emu oil and how it is being used in cosmetics these days. Did you know that you could ingest Emu oil to reduce cholesterol? It also aids in weight loss and can be used as a cough syrup! Emu oil is also used to reduce the pain and irritation of shingles, bedsores, nerve pain, insect bites and more! Emu oil can also reduce swelling and help with arthritis pain. Emu oil is also being offered in cosmetics because of its ability to penetrate the skin. In fact the Emu farm has its very own line

of cosmetics and skin care products. Inside the gift shop, we taste tested some Emu jerky which was mmm, so good and then we got to sample some of the creams, and skin care products. Emu oil is so silky smooth and it glides onto your skin leaving it soft and sore joints feel soothed. I bought some of the oil itself and some lip balm. All of you who ride should consider carrying a small bottle of the emu oil and the lip balm with you – the restorative effects for after burn care, dry and chapped lips and sore muscles and joints truly make this a must have product for riders! The lip balm is going to run you $7.95 and the small bottle of oil will run you $10.99 but both will last you far longer than you can imagine! ( From Saint-Urbain we rode north on #381 towards our lunch destination for the day, Auberge des Battures, La Baie. We stopped at a lookout that gave us the most spectacular view of Lac St. Jean and took in an old roadside church that was used by people traversing this way as a resting point. The church is still used by locals. When we arrived in La Baie, I was given a lesson about the floods that occurred here wiping out the entire town. In July of 1996, a series of flash floods hit the region creating the largest overland flood in the 20th century in Canada. After two weeks of constant rain an immense rainstorm on July 19th where 11 inches of rain fell in just a few hours, triggered the massive flooding. Over 16,000 people were evacuated, 480 homes destroyed, over 1,200 homes were damaged and 10 people were killed. A small white house that stood unharmed while torrents of water flowed around it became the symbol of the flood. It has been preserved as a historical park and museum commemorating the flood, and despite a fire in 2002 remains standing today. At the Auberge des Battures we were joined by Lynne Savoy of L’Association moto-tourisme de Jonquière. The view of the Saguenay Fjord from the dining room is spectacular. The food, the view and the company made this meal an amazing one!

Alberta officially declared a measles outbreak in Calgary, Edmonton and central Alberta on Tuesday. Health officials say the declaration was prompted by “several consecutive weeks in which new cases of measles disease have been confirmed.” Dr. Marcia Johnson, medical officer of health for the Edmonton Zone, said there have been 22 cases of measles in the province, but because the disease has a long incubation period, more cases are expected to emerge. The declaration means changes to the recommendations for routine immunization for children, she said. “It allows us to offer measles vaccine early to help protect infants over the age of six months to just under 12 months. Those infants usually are not eligible for measles vaccine and therefore are not protected against the disease.” Alberta Health Services recommends: - Infants six months of age to under 12 months of age are now eligible for an early additional dose of measles vaccine for shortterm added protection against the disease. That includes babies living in the zones or travelling to those zones, or any out-ofprovince destinations with measles outbreaks. Those children will still need an additional dose of the vaccine once they are four. - Children age four and older who are attending daycares, day homes and schools within the regions and have not yet received their second dose of measles vaccine should receive it as soon as possible. The outbreak applies to the Calgary Zone (nine measles cases), the Edmonton Zone (six cases) and the Central Alberta Zone (seven cases), but not to any other part of the province. Health officials are urging all Albertans born in or after 1970 to make sure they have received both doses of the measles vaccine.

Quebec: Riding like a local Continued from 41

your choice of


The menu offered up a variety of local delicacies from salmon to lamb, and Francine and I shared bites of each other’s lunches and the heavenly desserts that came with the meals. We chatted about the riding in the region and the sites we were to be taking in over the next two days. Pretty soon it was time to head out. I was going to be staying at the Auberge Presbytere Mont Lac-Vert. The ride to the Auberge Presbytere was under sun filled skies and the scenery and riding was filled with lovely curves. It was a glorious afternoon of riding, one that I was sad to see end. When we pulled into the Auberge Presbytere I was totally taken aback. It was not what I expected at all! Built in 1917, the Inn started its life as the presbytery (home for the priest) of the parish of Ascension of Our Lord Lac-Saint-Jean but was sold in 1978 and moved in sections to its present location ad was a farmhouse until 1986. In 1986, the home was converted into a Bed & Breakfast/ Hotel and serves local skiers, snowmobilers and motorcyclists! The entire place, including the menu is themed to celebrate the beginning of the building as a rectory. My room was the Monseigneur’s! After taking my bags to the room we all met up in the basement lounge where we were served up some wonderful appetizers and beverages. We got to meet with the owners, Danielle and Robert and share some great laughs and conversation. I also got to meet one of the ladies for the tourism office, Karine, and she and I had this amazing meal out on the covered veranda. I had to have help reading the menu as it was all in French, but before too long, our waitress brought me an English version. I had the Maple drenched white fish and I have to tell you I have never enjoyed a piece of fish so much! After an amazingly productive dinner meeting with Karine, I wandered off with my camera to explore the Auberge a little more closely. The place truly feels like a rectory with all of the religious symbols and yet, it is very homey and comfortable. Upstairs there are dormitory style rooms that groups can rent, all divided by room dividers. I headed back to my room and settled down at the desk to download and tag photo and video and once done, I headed to bed. I slept so well! It was a good thing too because day two of riding in this region was going to be a busy one! Next week we will pick up with the dawning of day two and another phenomenal day of riding and sight seeing with the Club Moto Saguenay. BDB

Alert: Possible new virulent clubroot pathotype APRIL 28, 2014 CANOLA COUNCIL OF CANADA CANOLA WATCH ALERT

Look out for clubroot patches in 2014 — even if the field is seeded to a resistant variety. New data from the Alberta clubroot disease survey indicates some forms of clubroot resistance are no longer functioning well against a possible new clubroot pathotype in the Edmonton region. Dr. Stephen Strelkov at the University of Alberta has investigated samples collected from several fields and verified higher levels of infection than expected in some clubroot resistant varieties. Further studies are underway to verify the true virulence of these clubroot strains. This risk was highlighted when clubroot resistance was first introduced in Western Canada in 2009. Researchers from Sweden had earlier observed that the clubroot pathogen overcame resistance in two crop rotations. Clubroot resistance in winter canola in the U.K. was overcome in four years. And greenhouse studies at the University of Alberta showed that some types of Canadian clubroot resistance can lose their effectiveness in as few as two canola crop rotations when under extreme pressure. For some fields in the Edmonton area, it’s like we’re back to 2003 and clubroot has been identified for the first time. Our advantage this time is experience. We know that this disease is aggressive and spreads quickly. The good news is that we’re likely talking about very few fields and patches within those fields. Clubroot resistance is expected to be functional in the vast majority of acres this year. But attention needs to be paid to prevent this situation from expanding. A new virulent pathotype, if allowed to spread, could set us back to the start of a new clubroot infestation. How do new pathotypes develop? This is roughly 1,000 kg of soil. Imagine that this soil is lightly infested with clubroot, meaning it has a low chance of selecting for a pathotype that could be virulent on clubroot-resistant canola. Now imagine the tiny amount of soil circled in red (zoomed below) is highly infested with clubroot. This tiny amount of soil, though roughly one millionth the volume of the soil in the truck bed, could contain as many clubroot spores as an entire truckload of lightly infested soil. New virulent pathotypes are 1,000,000 times more likely to be selected in a field of highly infested soil versus a field of lightly infested soil. Resistance can lose its effectiveness when repeated cropping of a resistance source selects for individuals within a pathogen population that are virulent on that resistance. Initially, these new pathogen strains are very rare but then increase by being able to attack the “resistant” genotypes. These few individuals with these new virulence traits can therefore infect “resistant” plants, create galls and build up relatively quickly to create

a new pathotype population. Within a few canola rotations — particularly if those rotations have canola every other year and are the same variety with the same genetic resistance source — the clubroot resistance trait will lose its effectiveness. In fields with high levels of clubroot, there will be many billions of Plasmodiophora brassicae resting spores in the soil. The more spores, the greater chance of there being rare pathogen strains that can attack resistant genotypes. The weed analogy. Herbicide-resistant weed populations build up the same way. If there are thousands of wild oat plants in a field, there will be a population of individuals possessing a variety of mutations. Eventually, there will be a mutation in some individual weeds that confers resistance to Group 1 herbicide, for example. That resistant seed will form a plant that produces more resistant seeds. If that field is receiving Group 1 herbicide over and over, then what started as one resistant wild oat plant will form a population of Group-1 resistant wild oats that spreads throughout the field and farm. The same selection process has happened with wheat rust, soybean cyst nematode, blackleg in canola and various other crop pests over the years. In all of these cases, the risk of selecting for resistant pathotypes is proportional to the amount of the pest present. The bigger the population, the more mutations, and the greater likelihood of selecting for individuals with a mutation that can overcome the resistance. The odds. Suppose a newly infested field has Plasmodiophora brassicae spores at a concentration of 1,000 spores/g of soil, while a highly infested field near Edmonton has one billion spores/g of soil. If one in a million of these resting spores were capable of overcoming resistance being used on that Edmonton field, then there are 1,000 spores in a gram of soil in a highly infested field that would be capable of accomplishing this breakdown. The next time a grower grew the same clubroot resistance on that same field, there would be enough of these new virulent spores to totally overwhelm that same resistance. But in fields with low spore levels, perhaps in southern Alberta or in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, finding spores capable of overcoming resistance in that gram of soil is less likely. One would need 1,000 g of soil just to find one virulent spore, versus 1,000 spores in one gram of infested soil. That’s a million-fold difference. Therefore, clubroot resistant varieties grown in these low incidence areas would not face a significant risk of being overcome. And if there is no P. brassicae in the field at all, then resistance will not be eroded since there is nothing there to overcome that resistance. Growing resistant varieties in areas with low levels of clubroot is a good way to keep clubroot levels low. Waiting until clubroot levels get high before using a resistant variety puts the resistance traits at a much greater risk. How to protect clubroot resistance Continuing with the same resistant variety on the same field increases the

risk of selecting for and building up new virulent pathotypes. Source: Randy Kutcher Dr. Stephen Strelkov continues to study the clubroot samples collected in 2013, to see whether these new strains are virulent on all clubroot resistant varieties. Research indicates that the Pioneer Hi-Bred and Monsanto sources of clubroot resistance appear to be different from each other in the

lab and field, but we currently do not have enough information to make conclusions about other varieties. In the longer term, development of additional resistance genes or cross licensing among seed companies could allow for stacking of resistance traits, which substantially lowers the risk of selecting for a pathotype that can overcome the resistance. Seed companies already have a history of cross licensing traits to battle soybean cyst nematode and in stacking Roundup Ready and Liberty Link traits to maintain the effectiveness of herbicide tolerance systems, to give two examples. Short of a stacked genetics solution and/or the development of several more distinct sources of resistance, which could take a lot of time and effort, we need to follow the risk mitigation practices to help prevent clubroot spread and protect this valuable genetic trait. 1. Crop rotation. Canola grown in longer rotations will reduce the selection pressure on the clubroot pathogen, especially in fields with a high clubroot spore load. This will reduce the risk of selecting for pathogens that will overcome genetic resistance. Under prairie conditions, the half-life of the resting spores has been estimated at about 4.4 years (Hwang et al, 2009), although there is evidence that a large proportion of the resting spore population dies off in the first two years after canola (Peng et al). 2. Resistance rotation. Avoid using the same clubroot resistance source back to back in sequence on a field. Researchers from Sweden had earlier observed that the clubroot pathogen overcame resistance in two crop rotations. Clubroot resistance in winter canola in the U.K. was overcome in four years. And greenhouse studies at the University of Alberta showed that some types of Canadian clubroot resistance can lose their effectiveness in as few as two canola crop rotations when under extreme pressure. Resistance sources are listed in this article. 3. Grow R varieties if clubroot is a concern in your area, even if you haven’t found clubroot in your fields. Growing resistant varieties in areas with low levels of clubroot is a good way to keep clubroot levels low. If growers wait for clubroot to show up before choosing R varieties, the selection pressure for new virulent pathotypes is literally millions of times higher than if growers begin using R varieties before the disease shows up. There is currently not enough seed available to use it everywhere across the Prairies, but planting clubroot-resistant varieties on fields with no history of this disease can be useful when clubroot has been confirmed nearby. 4. Scout. Growers using clubroot resistant varieties should scout their fields regularly to see if there is any evidence of the resistance breaking down. If the field is known to be infested with clubroot, then scouting should be very thorough before or during swathing. “Thorough” means examining the whole field to measure if there is an indication of pathotype shift, which will have a large impact on the future use of canola on that field. If the field is not known to be infested with clubroot, then scouting near the field entry points should occur once near the end of the growing season. Note that a bag of clubroot-resistant seed will include some off types that may not have the clubroot resistance gene. These plants will be evenly distributed throughout the field. Instead, look for patches of clubrootinfected plants. In fields planted to a resistant variety, these patches may indicate the presence of a new virulent pathotype. While scouting, observe the location of the plants. Infested plants outside the seedrow could be susceptible volunteers. 5. Limit soil movement from field to field. Preventing spread of the disease is important in the long term control of this disease — even with clubroot resistant varieties. Sanitation practices are essential for fields known to be infested with clubroot, and important to ensure that areas without clubroot do not become infested as well. Sanitize your own equipment between fields, and if you hire custom operators for any job make sure you ask about their sanitation protocols. If you purchase used equipment from clubroot infested regions, make sure it is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before it gets to your farm. 6. Manage weeds. Control of canola volunteers and other weeds that act as hosts for clubroot will be essential to keep the selection pressure low by not allowing the disease to build-up in the non-canola years. What we don’t know As mentioned in the previous article, we still do not know enough about this potential new clubroot pathotype. Dr. Strelkov is currently conducting phase 2 of greenhouse testing to help verify the virulence of these clubroot strains. More data is expected to be available later this spring. Dr. Strelkov, the CCC and others will develop a more concerted clubroot scouting effort this summer in a few Alberta counties to determine if there are pathotype changes occurring. We also don’t know how widespread this new pathotype is, geographically. Is it really new? Or is it already present in most of the clubroot infested soils, but just at a very low frequency?
