Alberta Farm & Ranch Directory 38th Edition 2010 Editorial/Production: Lance Johnson

Publisher: Drive Solutions Corp.

Cover Design: Bella Spur Innovative Media

Official 2010 Cover Partner: Alberta Pulse Growers Commission

Legal: The Alberta Farm & Ranch Directory is published by Drive Solutions Corp on behalf of ACCA (Alberta Community and Co-operative Association).

Message from ACCA 38 Years! It’s hard to believe, but the Alberta Farm and Ranch Directory has been the leading source of agriculture contacts for Alberta’s farm and ranch community for almost four decades. As you know, our directory underwent a complete redesign last year under the direction of Lance Johnson and his team over at Drive Solutions Corp. – and what a change it was! The fresh new look and increased level of content resonated well throughout rural Alberta with many of you taking the time to write or email us your feedback. We’re happy to hear that you like the changes and we’ll continue to listen, so please use our questionnaire at the back of this directory to forward us your ideas on how we can continue to improve. So, what’s new with the Directory this year? Well, seeing as you all liked the ’09 design changes, we felt we’d leave it be for another year before we started tinkering again. Instead, we focused our energies on creating a website (www.FarmAndRanchDirectory.com) for the directory. This online portal will continue to advance in functionality, but for now it is a great place for information about the directory and provides our readers with a place where they can download an electronic version and read more articles and blogs about our great industry. I also want to ensure we acknowledge the wonderful support we continue to receive from our partners. Producing and distributing any publication is truly a team effort and this directory is no exception. We are thrilled to have the Alberta Pulse Growers Commission come on as our official cover partner this year. Pulses continue to be an attractive cropping option, so make sure you read their article as it contains some surprising facts. And as you are flipping through the directory, make note of our advertisers. Without them, we couldn`t produce this valuable directory.

All the best in 2010! Russell Wolf, Chair, ACCA ~2~

Albertan’s Pulses Are Forecast to Rise By Tammy Jones

Did that make your heart beat quicken? In this instance, “pulses” refer to the dried edible seeds of legumes, including lentils, beans, peas and chickpeas. The word pulse comes from the Latin word puls meaning a thick soup or potage made with these legumes. Currently there are 4,700 innovative farmers growing pulses on about 740,000 acres of the cultivated land in Alberta. The majority of those acres are field pea, as it can be grown in all parts of the province.  Other pulse crops have more specific growing requirements that limit the area of production, for instance dry edible beans are produced under irrigation in southern Alberta. Lentil and chickpea are grown mostly in south eastern Alberta where a dry spell in August helps to start pod set. There is also a small amount of faba bean production in areas with more available moisture, including central and north-central Alberta and irrigated areas of southern Alberta.  Canada is the world’s largest exporter of pulses! Our pulse exports are sent to 150 countries and were valued at more than $2 billion in 2009. The Alberta pulse industry has grown exponentially over the last 20 years, and within the last five years Alberta pulse exports have doubled in value contributing $185 million to the Alberta economy in 2009. Today, Alberta produces 14% of Canada’s pulse crop and there is great potential for growth. ...continues on page 13

No More Old Boys Club?

How the new generation of farmers is taking care of the business of farming By Megan Oleksyn Gone are the days of swapping cultivating techniques in the local coffee shop. The new generation of farmers are innovative, technologically savvy and willing to try anything once. Many new strategies and techniques are being employed across Western Canada in the agricultural industry by young producers. From using new crop inputs to diversifying their operations, young farmers are improving the industry one step at a time. The new generation of farmers are also taking a more active role in treating their farm like the business that it is. Education is becoming a priority and a majority of farmers are attending post secondary education before returning to the land. This education is not only providing information about business, agronomy and chemistry, but it is allowing these farmers the opportunity to create an educated network for them to maintain long after school is out. With the technology available, these younger farmers are staying in touch easily and are eager to share what they have learned and absorb what others have tried on their operations. Without the influence of the older generation to inhibit them, they are free to discuss new business strategy, marketing ideas and even minute details that may improve their operations. ...continues on page 26

Albertan’s Pulses Are Forecast to Rise Continued from page 4

Why is the pulse industry on the rise? Until now, most growth in the Alberta, and Canadian, pulse industry has been through increasing exports to countries like India, where consumers rely on pulses as an economical and healthy source of vegetable protein. As the world’s population grows so do the opportunities for pulses. In addition, greater recognition of the health and environmental benefits of pulses are resulting in increased opportunities in North America and Europe. Clinical studies have shown that eating pulses can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduce elevated blood pressure, help prevent heart disease and obesity and may even reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancers.  While pulses have enormous potential as disease-fighting agents and contributors to good health, they are also environmentally-sustainable, as pulse plants use nitrogen from the air for growth and have a reduced carbon footprint compared to other crops. Tammy is the director of Grower Relations and Communications for Alberta Pulse Growers Commission (APGC). If you would like information regarding the opportunities for growing pulses in Alberta, visit www.pulse.ab.ca or email the APGC at office@pulse.ab.ca.

Farmers Surf the Web: How the Internet can Help You Improve Your Farm Business By Megan Oleksyn

The internet is not just for email anymore! Every day more and more farmers and ranchers are logging on to the world wide web to stay connected with the agricultural industry. With information on the internet being immediately accessible, farmers are able to access more information faster than ever. The internet provides a wealth of information from a variety of sources such as government, corporations and even other producers. Up to the second weather, commodity information, technology updates, contact information and more are readily available from a diversity of sources allowing every producer to choose which resource is most relevant to their operation. Today farmers can shop around far more efficiently by comparing feed, input and machinery prices without leaving the farm. Roger Chevraux, a farmer from Killam agrees, “I can do everything on my Blackberry that I used to have to call four elevators and six other people to get the same information. Now I can do it in two minutes, all from my phone. ” The internet has truly become a management tool. Farmers can utilize resources not previously available to them and use it to make better decisions based on a broader scope of information. The peer communication available on the internet is an invaluable tool to today’s modern farmers. Peer feedback is an important component of this communication and according to Saskatchewan farmer Courtney Swystyn this can help farmers collect information. “I go online to look at new machinery and technology and to see what others who have already tried it have to say about it,” says the young grain farmer, “It definitely helps me make purchase decisions when I’m hearing from real producers who have tried the products already.” Ian Brassington, a mixed farmer from the Paradise Valley area in Alberta says that the internet not only allows him to benchmark his operation with local and regional farmers, but to access new ideas and strategies he would not have otherwise. Chat rooms, blogs and informational sites allow him to find trial data, product information and updates without having to contact sales reps. The impersonal aspect of the internet appeals to some farmers who need information, but don’t have the time for a meeting or a trip to town. By utilizing the internet for new ideas, opinions and business strategies, you too can improve your farm operation from the ground up. Megan Oleksyn is the founder of southpaw communications. You can contact Megan at 780-205-4213 or megan.oleksyn@gmail.com.

We have all heard the buzz around local, and consumers seem to be jumping on board. But is it a real opportunity for Alberta’s producers? Well, let’s examine it a little further. Farmers’ Markets in Alberta sold an estimated $380 million in direct sales in 2008. These total sales were up 63% from 2004. Furthermore 93% of Alberta shoppers said they believe that buying directly from a local farmer is important, and 1/3 of all Alberta households said they would buy more food grown or made in Alberta in the following year. These numbers are pretty big, indicating an industry and an opportunity that isn’t likely to fade away anytime soon. But what does this mean for your operation? Like any opportunity, it comes with some challenges. Whether it is for you or not depends on you, and the goals of your operation. Firstly, the local food system is fledgling. This means it is lacking some of the distribution infrastructure taken for granted in agriculture. If you want to sell your food direct, you need to be prepared to be the producer, the middleman, and the retailer. This comes with both advantages and disadvantages. On the positive side it means you don’t lose most of your market share. In a system where producers tend to receive a fairly small portion of what their product is eventually sold for, this can be very enticing. It also means that your markets tend to be more stable, and you retain a certain degree of control over the end price. Marketing however is a major challenge. Some questions you should ask yourself are: Am I a people person? Do I want to be on the ground selling my product? Can I make arrangements to be off the farm at least a couple days a week? A lot of local food marketing is about selling experience. Even if your consumers never come out to see your land, they want to feel like they have. They want you to be ‘their farmer’ and they want to feel connected. Every farm and ranch has a story, so you will need to figure out what yours is, and then find a good way of telling it. Finally other things to consider are: storage, on-farm processing (do you need to buy a flour mill?), finding processors that will track your animals and return them to you once cut and wrapped, and if there is a market for what you grow or raise? So is local food for you? Time to sit down and weigh your options.

With Increased Opportunity Comes Responsibility By Tracy Meyer

In response to the phenomenal encouragement from the Canola Council to reach 15M MT of Canola production, growers across the Canadian prairies continue to increase Canola production. It has been wonderful and encouraging to see that there continues to be enormous investment in canola breeding (Bayer, Cargill, Monsanto etc.), market discovery, and infrastructure development (Richardson International’s and Louis Dreyfus’ Yorkton canola crush plants). However, some are concerned we are reaching a ceiling in terms of responsible canola acreage. The moral of the story: with this wonderful yellow flower blooming all across the prairies, we could be setting ourselves up for a bit of an agronomic doozy! When pushing canola rotations it is absolutely critical that growers realize the impact we are having on ecosystems and the biotic/abiotic factors that interact directly with agricultural production. For example, the Canadian prairies are as nutritious and productive as they are due to the fact we had such a balanced prairie ecosystem. This ecosystem is largely why our soils have phenomenal organic matter levels, great water table stability, balanced pH, manageable micronutrient levels, tilth etc. Thus, as stewards of the land, it is vital that growers take on the environmental responsibility in maintaining this balance. Well enough of that rant! So, as canola production increases on the prairies here are a few points to keep in mind! •

Along with the increasing monoculture of a single crop comes increased insect pressure. When applying insecticides, keep in mind that when an entire insect ecosystem in an area is destroyed, the ecosystem is first re-established by plant feeding insects (pests). After a significant lag time, once the pest populations of insects reach sufficient levels, predator (beneficial insects) populations rebound.

Each species of plant has a different nutritional balance requirement. Thus, with increased canola in rotations watch for certain nutrients to become less abundant (mined) from soils. Keep in mind soil sampling and benchmarking will become increasingly important to make appropriate nutritional adjustments to succeeding crops.

With herbicide resistant Canola systems will come increasing selective pressure on varying weeds. Although chemicals like glyphosate and glufosinate are non selective, they do have varying effectiveness. For example weeds such as buckwheat and cleavers are showing dramatic population increases throughout the prairies due to their natural ability to withstand the effects of these chemicals. Keep in mind this creates further weed control challenges in other crops, some of which pose significant problems as we lack sufficient control options.

keep in mind… soil microbial diversity, soil moisture content, deeper soil strata chemistry, fungal disease pressure, incidence of early season blights and root rots…the list goes on

Obviously there are always challenges that come with great opportunity; however, the take away from this is to remain aware. In staying aware of beneficial insects, soil health and the importance of maintaining a diverse cropping system, a grower can not only keep an operation environmentally sustainable (don’t have to be organic to do this!) but also economically feasible.
