How do you Measure Up? By Lance Johnson

If you don’t know the answer to this question, then your operation is at risk! You might work harder than your neighbour and put in longer hours, but this doesn’t mean you’re a better farmer. Only those who take regular and multiple measurements of their operations can truly tell how they are doing. And guess what…these tend to be the most profitable farmers. I know all of you have heard government and advisors preach the need for business planning. Although I whole heartedly agree that not having a business plan is akin to not having a GPS in Los Angeles and trying to navigate the unnerving traffic in a 28 foot Winnebago (another story for another time!), I’m going to use this space to climb up on my “Measure It” pulpit. Growing up on a mixed farm I was always amazed at how organized and efficient dairy farms were. I was also jealous as they always seemed to be doing better than the average grain or cattle guy. Now one can discard much of their management skills and instead insist that it’s the price controls that made them their money. And you may be partially right. But, quota wasn’t the only key. Daily measurements provided the real advantage. They tracked every minute detail of their milk factory. They used this data to tweak their processes on a daily basis to optimize their production. So what can we learn from our dairy cousins? If you measure it, you can improve it. I’m not suggesting that you need to take measurements every day as I don’t know any beef or crop producer who can do this. What I am suggesting is that the top 10 or 20% of the producers in your part of the industry are measuring more than you are. Ask yourself two questions: What are they measuring? How are they measuring it? Now replicate these measurement best practices in your business, use the information to make adjustments to your management and see your profits reach new highs. It’s the knowledge of what is working and what isn’t that will be the key to your success. You can’t determine this if you don’t measure it. Now as the famous saying goes, Just Do It!

Did you know... If you feel you’re getting more power when running you tractor at night time, you might be right. Running your tractor during the heat of the day also heats the fuel, and this can affect tractor performance. Generally speaking, cooler fuel in summer enhances performance. Some manufacturers are now putting fuel coolers on their tractors. Reference: Nine Tips for Tractor Operators http://www1.agric.gov.ab.ca/$department/ deptdocs.nsf/all/eng9920

Branding Your Organization By Dalynn Harris

A brand is an important thing...just ask any cattleman. Sure, it’s a distinguishing feature that indicates ownership, but in today’s competitive marketplace it also communicates something else; something arguably more important. Every time a rancher places his mark on one of his animals, they are communicating all the qualities they have bred into their herd. In this way, this small symbol becomes a very powerful communications piece. Like a cattle brand, agribusinesses need to consider how they communicate their unique business message to their customers and potential customers. If you are thinking of starting a new operation or re-branding your existing company your image starts with a carefully crafted logo. Here are some tips to consider when developing your logo: 1. Ensure the image clearly communicates your company message. Once you have chosen a design, ask your neighbours and friends to tell you what they think of it when they first see it. This first impression is just like a first meeting with someone and equally important. 2. Create something new and memorable - a necessity in this industry. 3. Once your brand/logo is established all company materials should include this image. Your business cards, website, signage, sponsorship and advertisements should have the same logo displayed. In advertising, repetition equals recall and recall leads to greater sales. 4. Consider spending the money to have a professional designer develop your logo and overall brand strategy. Remember, your brand/logo is the one thing a person sees that represents you, your company, and your products/services. A creative designer can help you communicate precisely what you want. Image counts - make the best of it for the continued success of your agri-business. Dalynn is the founder of Sirrah Management a leading marketing company specializing in customized solutions for the agriculture industry.

What’s all the fuss about Local Food? There’s a growing interest amongst Albertan’s to purchase more food locally. In the “Alternative Agriculture Markets in Alberta, 2008” report, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development reported 90% of Alberta households purchased Local Food between September 2007 to August 2008, the equivalent of 1,279,000 households. Of the total population, almost one-third of households thought they would either buy more Local Food in the next year (27%) or would start to purchase Local Food (5%). This trend for Local Food is being driven by a craving for fresher and better tasting food and a desire to support the local economy.

Leadership – Essential to Successful Agriculture By Stuart Austin

As market prices fluctuate rapidly on almost all commodities, we are constantly analysing and assessing our inputs, outputs and end margins. We make every minor detail count, every pound of fertilizer, every bushel of grain and every vaccination shot. However, it seems we are forgetting to focus on our most valuable commodity and its inputs and outputs. Assuming the position of Farm Manager, we often assume responsibility, authority and accountability, all of which hold large elements of risk and potentially, negativity in some form or another. However, let’s for a minute assume one more role, a role that is a large part of any management position…that of leadership. You may or may not assume yourself to be a leader. Nor may you want to be a leader. Whether you employ staff, have family help, or are generally visible to others in your day to day actions, you are inadvertently becoming a leader

and guess what, right now WE NEED YOU! In agriculture, every person’s actions today, no matter how small or invisible you may feel, will in some way affect the actions of someone else tomorrow. You will teach someone something, sometimes it’s the right thing and occasionally it’s a mistake that another will learn from. It’s these actions that make us all leaders. It’s these actions that are keeping agriculture alive today. We need to be sure that these actions keep agriculture alive for tomorrow. We need to actively encourage learning and embrace youth in our industry, offer opportunity, offer benefits and not always rely on the dollar. Leadership in our day to day environment is just as important. How often do we praise the actions of others in comparison to how often we criticise or analyse. It’s human nature to remember the negative experiences ahead of the positive. We can all

~ 25 ~

remember the date grandma died, but who remembers the date we last spent the day together as a family? An extreme example, but my point is this, for every mistake we criticise, we need to praise ten achievements. Each time we get a field sown, make a point of congratulating and thanking..and mean it! Positive reinforcement leads to positive results and a positive environment. Positive results from the “human” resource leads to positive results on the financial statement. Remember, you are leading by example. To attract and retain youth in our industry we need to focus on all the positive things about our industry that we love and enjoy. That’s how we reinstall the work ethic that we so often lament as being lost on today’s generation.

• B  est feeding management is attained by separating cows that have calved from those that have not. • R  ation balancing using the animal’s nutrient requirements and the nutrient composition of the feed resource should be used to determine the appropriate ration. • A  nimals have specific nutrient requirements • M  oisture content of feeds must be known to assure accurate ration formulation, particularly silages. • C  orrect nutritional decisions can be made if composition of the feed resources are known. • T  he mineral needs of a cow increase rapidly after she calves. • E  xtra nutrients are required 90 days post-calving to assure a cow that will produce maximum milk and rebreed efficiently. • I njuries and diseases of beef cattle at calving include some common and acute conditions that generally respond rapidly to treatment with little effect on the subsequent breeding period.

• S everal conditions may occur during calving or soon after. Because of their chronic nature these diseases have a decided effect on the breeding history of the affected cows. • C  alving losses in heifers are often high and most of these deaths are a result of calving difficulties. • T  he rancher must use good judgement in his decisions as to which calving problems require professional help. • T  raction on the calf in the early stages should be exerted upward in the direction of the tail head and not downward. Once the calf is in the pelvic cavity, traction should be straight backward and then downward; thus the calf passes through the birth canal in the form of an arch. • M  any calving difficulties could be eliminated by proper development of replacement heifers or breeding first-calf heifers to bulls that will sire calves with below average birth weights.

Tractor Ballasting, Ballast Distribution, and Wheel Slip Most work is done where maximum tractor weight is not needed. Most farmers use more than 80 per cent of available power only 15 to 20 per cent of the time. That’s why weighting for typical conditions rather than maximum needs can reduce operating costs. Ballast distribution between the front and back wheels should not be overlooked. Most operator’s manuals or dealers can help you determine the total ballasted weight for your tractor. To fine tune ballast distribution, it’s important to consider three variables: horsepower, travel speed, and wheel slip (refer to Research Update 725, Ballasting for Performance). The total ballasted weight should be split about as follows: Wheel slip should be in the 10 to 15 per cent range for two wheel drive tractors and 8 to 12 per cent for four wheel drive tractors. The procedure for measuring wheel slip compares the number of wheel turns over a fixed distance with the tractor unloaded, to the number of wheel turns over the same distance under load. Some tractor operator’s manuals include a section on how to measure wheel slip, or you can consult Research Update 725, Ballasting for Performance.

How Do I Make Agriculture A Viable Career For My Children? By Stuart Austin

How often have we asked ourselves this question? Or more importantly, how often have we made a point of convincing our children not to take the agriculture career path? Mama’s don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboy’s, make ‘em be doctors and lawyers.... There is a way. It is possible and in today’s economy it is more possible than ever. Yes, the obstacles are still there, but they are also getting smaller and more easily overcome. With interest rates at their lowest, now is the time to help our kids out in obtaining a little capital to start that venture, buy that sprayer for custom work, or begin that small business as an agriconsultant. The knowledge that your son or daughter has is new and exciting and of immense value to the industry. As a friend of mine said to me a few months ago at a young farmers forum, “We have a strong voice in the South and we’re not afraid to use it!” Yes we are a young population in decline but those of us that are here, are here for the long haul. We are here for the love of it. We want to seize the opportunities and build empires. As the world convinces itself of a recession, agriculture is overloaded with opportunities and for one simple reason, people have to eat! This is our chance to become a leading industry in the world economy. This is our chance to be noticed. By the year 2050 the world’s population will be double what it is today. We, the youth of today and the farmers of tomorrow, will be feeding these people. In reference to my opening comments, in the regular family farm business succession is often an issue. It can be done. Every day I read success stories of farm family businesses value adding, diversifying, embracing their children in the family business and creating opportunities for them to continue in the industry that they have grown to love and live. Seek the information you need to make it happen. Google ‘Succession Planning’, the results will overwhelm you. People like Elaine Froese and Dick Whitmann are there to help. They have made it their lives to assist others in achieving their goals in handing over the family business to the next generation. We do want to be a part of Agriculture, please give us the opportunity to succeed. You will be amazed how good that feeling of satisfaction is to see your kids succeed tomorrow, just as you have in creating the business that you run today. Stuart is the vice-president of Future Agriculture Business Builders (FABB) whose mission is: supporting and connecting Alberta’s young adults in agriculture by facilitating opportunities for learning, networking and mentorship. www.fabb.ca

Founded by farmers.

The Co-operators is your farm insurance expert. It’s a story only The Co-operators can tell – about farmers creating an insurance company distinguished by its principles. In 1945, after losing most of their belongings and savings during the Great Depression, a group of Saskatchewan farmers decided to pool their collective resources to start an insurance co-operative. From basic farm insurance for your dwellings, outbuildings, contents, machinery, livestock and produce to specialized coverage like power interruption, machinery breakdowns, and liability for farm employees, The Co-operators carefully tailors your coverage to reduce business risks. For expert insurance advice about your farming operations, contact your local Co-operators agent in the Yellow Pages™ or click on Agent Locator at www.cooperators.ca. A proud sponsor of
