HEADER WAGONS

Trailing your combine head with a Horst CHC Wagon keeps you moving with safe and easy road travel. The use of tapered roller bearings on all main pivot points eliminates trailer sway providing smooth stable trailing behind your tow vehicle.

Draper head owners can rest easy too. Our Contour header carts can be easily adapted for draper heads. Contour header carts are available with larger mounts that are adjustable on three different axis so you can get the best resting point for your draper head.

Built on the proven reliability of Horst Wagons the Contour line of header carts adds increased maneuverability through 4-wheel steering. Ideal for combine heads 30-feet and longer the Contour easily trails behind a combine or tow vehicle following the same tracks of the tow vehicle. The rear wheels of the Contour are mechanically linked to the front allowing them to steer into the turn and maintain the original track of the tow vehicle.

Built specifically for the swather operator Horst has developed a draper head cart for your needs. To allow easy placement of your draper head we’ve moved the centre section of the frame towards the centre and added pivoting head supports.

FIVE STAR PUBLISHING, INC. and its Board Of Directors has no other affiliatiations, spin-offs or divisions of any other organization or companies.

All wagons in our Contour series can be ordered with a Cross Country package providing 4-wheel independent suspension, electric brakes, highway tires, and a light kit.

Crop Farmers Demand Accurate Truckload Weighing Systems

xtremely accurate axle pad weigh systems, even for large B-Trains, help farmers account for every pound of product and inputs.

of much help to those needing to measure more accurately. “Volumetric measuring is just ‘guesstimates’ because the actual weight can be misrepresented when there’s chaff and foreign objects in a load,” says Swystun.

With the size and volume of farms getting larger, often up to 10,000 acres or more, even small errors in accuracy of weighing product and inputs can make a major impact on the bottom line. Yet many farmers are far from the nearest load scale or rely on grain cart spindle scales or volumetric measurements whose accuracy is often less than desired. As an alternative, more farmers in the U.S. and Canada are turning to axle pad scales, which allow them to quickly check weigh product in the truck right off the fields before it goes to market or the grain bin, which can prevent costly overweight load fines. The axle pad scales also enable farmers to check weigh input costs on receipt to ensure accuracy, as well as benchmark and optimize productivity by verifying the accuracy of farm equipment. “Accurately weighing the load on a triple axle B-Train semi-trailer before it goes to market can prevent an overweight ticket that could pay for the axle pad scale,” says Rod Swystun, owner of a large grain farm, north of Blaine Lake in Saskatchewan, Canada.

For grain and crop farmers, it is easy to lose money on weight estimates. Unless there is a check weigh at the fields before the crop goes to market or to the storage bin, farmers may have no way to detect if key measurements are off or even if the entire load safely makes it to market or storage. Gordon Spencer, who farms 3,500 acres of wheat, barley, peas, lentils, and canola in Saskatchewan, Canada: “I got payback on our Massload axle pad scare in one spring planting season. During harvest, we use the scale almost every day to check that the combine is recording accurate field yield data.”

Volumetric measuring is just ‘guesstimates’ because the actual weight can be misrepresented when there’s chaff and foreign objects in a load.

“What we do at seeding time dictates our income for the year,” says Gordon Spencer, who farms 3,500 acres of wheat, barley, peas, lentils, and canola in Saskatchewan, Canada. “But the manufacturer’s seed drill output rates were inaccurate so we had to recalibrate everything.” “When fertilizer is $1,000/ton and amounts to a few hundred thousands of dollars during the planting season, you don’t want errors on those rates,” adds Spencer. “Apply too much and it’s wasted, too little and your income will be off on that field. Without our own scale to measure output, we estimated weight because driving to town to use a scale or weighing out pails of grain was too time consuming.”

“I use the Massload scale in my farm yard to verify the weight load of semi-trailers going to market, the accuracy of my field yield monitor, and the capacity of my grain dryer and grain cleaner.” Better Than Grain Bin Estimates Though built-in spindle scales are common in new grain carts and air seeder carts, due to mechanical constraints in design they are not always as accurate as advertised for measuring weight. Also, volumetric measurement of contents of grain storage bins can be inexact and not

Volumetric measuring doesn’t always help farmers check weigh their input costs for seed, fertilizer, and other items against their invoice receipt. With the value of crop farming doubling due to larger farms producing greater volumes of product over the last six years, even a small error in weighing can be costly.

Accurately weighing the load on a triple axle B-Train semi-trailer before it goes to market can prevent an overweight ticket that could pay for the axle pad scale.

A better option for many farmers in the U.S. and Canada is to use axle pad scales, which allow easy dualaxle and tri-axle weighing of product continues next page

in the truck before it goes to market or the storage bin, as well as weighing of inputs in the truck on receipt.

weight placement and multiplies the probability of one of the load cells failing by six-fold.

Spencer uses an above ground axle pad scale in a farmyard building to check seed drill rate settings each spring and to check that the combine is recording accurate data.

One innovative manufacturer of axle pad scales, Massload, a Saskatoon, Canadabased manufacturer of quality weighing systems, uses a 26” long load cell in its weigh pad that is essentially as wide as the platform. This provides accurate dual or triple axle weighing regardless of truck axle weight placement. These weigh pads have a very large weighing surface and low 6” profile, making them an easy method of determining truck axle weight. They can be used portably above ground at multiple locations or can be pit installed for permanent use.

“Once we get seed drills adjusted and set for the product, it’s quite reliable,” says Spencer. “I got payback on our Massload axle pad scale in one spring planting season. During harvest, we use the scale almost every day to check that the combine is recording accurate field yield data.” While axle weighing systems are not legal-for-trade, gathering weight data is quick and easy as the vehicle moves axle by axle over dual weigh pads and a total is given. This not only provides a check weigh to assure that all crop gets to market, and a check weigh against grain cart scales, but also a check weigh against input receipts, which can help benchmark input costs to optimize productivity. Use of axle pad scales at the farm can also help speed product to market or storage by minimizing the time wasted at offfarm weighbridges. “The accuracy of our Massload axle pad scale is improving our cost of production,” says Spencer. “It’s helping us to get the best output with the least input by applying the right amount of seed and fertilizer to maximize our productivity.” But not all axle pad scales are constructed alike. To maximize use without premature troubleshooting or replacement, it is vital that certain components be robustly constructed and made to last for prolonged use and severe weather conditions. The key components in axle pad scales are its load cells, which are located in the weigh pad platform and convert mechanical energy to electrical energy that is measured to determine weight. Unfortunately, in some axle pad scales made offshore, the load cells are sub-par and not individually tested. Often, these axle pad scales contain load cells that do not extend the full width of the weigh pad platform, which makes inaccurate measures more likely depending on truck axle weight placement. One offshorebuilt model contains six small load cells – one in each corner and two in the center, which makes accuracy dependent on axle

Since the company’s environmentally sealed double-ended shearbeam load cell is fully electronic, there are no moving parts to wear out or adjust. All gauges are individually tested and electronics done at its headquarters, which manufactures the only load cells of this type at a North American Verified Conformity Assessment Program (VCAP) certified facility. This allows its axle pad scales to weigh accurately and reliably to 0.25% in temperatures from -40°C to +57°C. Most offshore manufacturers use thin cable in their axle pad scales, but the Canadian-based Massload company uses heavy-duty cable that can withstand temperature extremes without breaking to ensure prolonged use – even in cold Northern weather, which can reach minus 40°C.

“The Massload axle pad scale works fine in -30°C outdoor weather and is holding up to a high volume of use,” says Swystun. For grain and crop farmers who want to account for every pound of their product and inputs by the truckload, the good news is that these axle pad scales come in several sizes that can handle even large tri-axle, B-Train Double truck rig sizes. While crop farmers may have believed that built-in grain cart spindle scales or volumetric measurements were sufficient, those who turn to accurate truckload, axle pad scale, weighing systems will have the advantage. By accounting for every pound of their product and inputs by the truckload, these farmers will add to their bottom line much faster than the competition.

«What'snew Newt what’s Never Drop or Spill Bulky, Heavy Bags Again with The Handy Camel

Krone Unveils New Technology, New Equipment at Ag Connect

Everyone has experienced that moment when you know the heavy bag you are carrying is about slip out of your grip, spilling its contents everywhere while you struggle to regain control. The Handy Camel solves this common problem with a high-tech version of the bag clips that can be found in many kitchens holding shut bags of potato chips and snacks.

The new Krone BiG Pack HighSpeed range of large square balers delivers up to 20 percent more throughput, an increase that has been made feasible by two major modifications: an increase in throughput capacity of the Variable Fill System (VFS) packer system and an increase in plunger strokes.

The Handy Camel is a 12-inch bag clip with a specially designed hinge closure system that makes it capable of sealing large bags. The built-in handle allows you to use the Handy Camel to carry awkward bags with ease and no fear of tearing the sides with your fingers. The Handy Camel keeps your back protected and safe when lifting a heavy bag because, you no longer need to bend over to wrap your arms around or under the item you are trying to lift. The Handy Camel can also be adjusted on a bag to use it as a pouring handle. Ideal for indoor or outdoor use, the Handy Camel is a must-have tool for gardeners, tailgate parties, pet owners, DIY weekend warriors, bird enthusiasts, and even the average homeowner dealing with bags of salt to melt winter snow or refill a water softener. The Handy Camel can eliminate the hassle of carrying and pouring dog and cat food, birdseed, garden soil, fertilizer, grass seed, charcoal, sand, and all other bagged, bulk items. The Handy Camel has many farm uses as well. Bags of corn, horse feed, protein pellets, chicken feed, seeds and other products can be sealed to prevent spillage in the back of a truck or between pens, and to keep mice out when stored.

The BiG Pack VFS now has five tine bars versus six tine bars on previous models. This allows for more space for crop in the VFS resulting in an increase in throughput capacity of 18 percent. The system operates in five stages to feed the material into the pre-chamber where it is compressed before it is allowed to enter the baling chamber. When the pre-chamber is filled with material the new cam-controlled sensing rake is pushed out of the VFS chamber, a system that ensures that the machine produces uniform, dense bales, even when dealing with small and narrow swaths.

The Handy Camel has an MSRP of $19.95. For more information visit www.thehandycamel.com.

The EasyCollect Collector works on the following principle: It feeds the crop to the middle of the machine without the crop ever changing direction, passing very smoothly through the header and into the machine – a system that warrants dependable operation in all conditions. It presents the stems perpendicular to the chopping assembly, which results in exceptional chopping quality. Testing and user experience bear evidence that the EasyCollect feed principle improves the quality of chop. As another plus, The EasyCollect 1053 is equipped with tungsten carbide coated, self-sharpening knives.

Krone EasyCollect 1053

The second major modification is to the number of plunger strokes. On the BiG Pack 1270, 1290 and 1290 HDP, plunger strokes have been increased by 18 percent from 38 to 45 strokes per minute. This also contributes to the 20 percent more throughput of these balers.

The Krone BiG Pack VFS

Further upgrades involve a larger diameter knotter shaft, which increased in size by 15mm to 55mm, wear plates that are bolted onto the bottom of the bale chamber to reduce the cost of wear in this area, and the new color touchscreen monitor that gives the operator a full overview of machine functions. With the Handy Camel you never have to worry about accidental spills again. The Handy Camel creates a tight seal on your open bags using a side hinge opening and ratchet locking system. The Handy Camel features rounded teeth on the interior of the clip that grip bags without tearing. To use the Handy Camel, you simply open the clip, slide it sideways across the width of the bag you want to seal, and as you begin to shut the clip across the bag, the ratchet system will begin to lock the bag closed. The Handy Camel is rated to carry up to 40 pounds.

winning Krone Collector. It’s modular, endless collector design leads to a substantial reduction in the number of components and drive systems, thus reducing weight and power requirements.

The twine boxes have also received some nice updates. They now have gas struts that allow operators to swing them up and fix them in their opened position for easy access to the baler for service and maintenance. The box is also sealed to keep dust and debris out and away from the twine. LED lights, which are activated when the panels are opened, illuminate the area where the twine is threaded into the system. Krone EasyCollect 1053 The new Krone EasyCollect 1053 corn head is able to harvest 14 rows of crop at a 35 foot work width and then fold into three-layers for narrow transport. EasyCollect 1053 utilizes the well-proven and award-

All EasyCollect headers that operate on BiG X forage harvesters are equipped with the AutoScan system where an optical sensor adjusts the chop length automatically to the maturity of the crop. The photo-optical sensor is integrated in the corn head, where it compares the color of the leaves to determine the maturity of the crops (dark green = high moisture level, brown = low moisture level). Based on these scans, the electronic system then computes and sets the optimum chop length. The benefits are obvious – green corn (i.e. high moisture) is automatically chopped to longer lengths to maintain the structure of the forage whereas brown corn (i.e. dry) is chopped to shorter lengths to increase silage density and avoid fermentation in the pit. Split into three sections, the EasyCollect header “sandwiches” quickly and easily into transport position at the touch of a button to give a low transport height and a narrow 11 foot 9 inch transport width. New Krone EasyFlow Pick-Up Head Krone is releasing a new pick-up head for their BiG X forage harvester, the EasyFlow 380. The EasyFlow 380 still boasts the innovative camless pick-up, but it has been updated with a new crop roller that has a revised contour and a repositioned deflector plate which improve the crop flow. Offering an adjustable clearance for the crop roller, the pick-up now adjusts even better to varying swath widths. For maximum longevity, the wearing plates in the crop flow area are now made of stainless steel and hardox. The new EasyFlow 380 pick-up head for the BiG X is available in a 12 foot 5 inch working width.

«What'snew Newt what’s The Air Adjust Coulter/Residue Manager Combo is adaptable for various situations and fits a wide range of planter models. The coulter can be removed and the residue manager can still be used. Residue managers can be raised with a push of a button as needed for a wet area in a field or waterway. The 2940 Air Adjust Coulter is available with ripple (R), 25 multiwave (MW), or 13 shallow wave (SW) blades. The residue manager is available with 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch residue manager wheels or with Yetter Farm Equipment’s exclusive SharkTooth wheels. The residue manager is also available with Yetter Floater Wheels that provide a point of contact during planting.

Air Adjust Technology Combines with Residue Management and Coulter Tillage Yetter Farm Equipment has announced a new product for the 2940 Air Adjust System family, the Air Adjust Coulter/Residue Manager Combo. Earlier this year, Yetter Farm Equipment introduced a new residue manager that features the ability to adjust depth as well as up- and down-pressure from the tractor cab using a controller, compressor, and air bags. The newest product available for the 2940 Air Adjust System family is the Air Adjust Coulter/Residue Manager Combo. “The air bags that control the up and down pressure for the residue manager can be independently adjusted from your tractor cab using the digital controller,” said Yetter Test Engineer Jake Henson. “The convenience of making adjustments from the cab means you can fine-tune settings for changing soil conditions where you may not have done so before, increasing the ef­ fectiveness of your planter and positively impacting emergence and yields.” Not only will the Air Adjust System from Yetter save farmers time and improve planting results, use of the combination unit—performing both residue manage­ ment and coulter tillage in one pass—further increases efficiency.

New Kinze 4900 Series Planter Available for 2014 Season Offers Increased Productivity and Precision Kinze® Manufacturing, Inc. unveiled its new Kinze 4900 planter series recently during a launch event at their world headquarters. With a new narrow transport front-fold frame design, 30” row spacing, and a choice of 12, 16, or 24 rows, the Kinze 4900 planter offers many significant new features that contribute to pro­ ductivity and precision during the planting season. “We conducted extensive research with farmers and engineered a new design, which provides superior agro­ nomic performance. We designed a new, front folding tool bar, engineered a state of the art vacuum meter with optional electric drive and created a cast iron row unit with more vertical travel,” says Rhett Schildroth, product manager for Kinze. The new patent-pending seed meter offers 99%+ accu­ racy at speeds from 2 to 8 mph. The meter is available with contact drive, hydraulic drive, and – new with the 4900 planter – electric drive (also patent pending). Rugged, high torque 24V motors allow for precise seed rate control by row. This means farmers will get con­ sistent seed spacing from the inside row to the outside row – even on tight radius turns and contours. Electric drive means there are no chains, clutches, gearboxes or shafts to maintain. The new planter frame has 42 degrees of wing flex (21 degrees up, 21 degrees down) to offer superior ground contact on rolling terrain and terraces. With the new

“After the residue manager removes the residue, the coulter loosens the soil for better seed to soil contact, eliminates compacted seed trench sidewalls, and sets the stage for the planter opener,” said Henson. “Your seed rows will warm more quickly, and your planter will run more smoothly and place seed more precisely.”

bulk fill tank design, the 16- and 24-row planters offer 120-bushel capacity while the 12-row offers 90-bushel capacity. Further, the planter frame incorporates hy­ draulic weight transfer, a Kinze-exclusive feature. This minimizes potential compaction and ensures that the row units provide a consistent seed depth while moving across the field, even on the roughest terrain. Addition­ ally, with up to 120 bushels of seed and 500 gallons of liquid fertilizer capacity, the 4900 planter allows farmers to continue planting for long periods of time without having to stop and refill. Maneuverability is critical, so Kinze engineers incor­ porated an industry exclusive flip-axle option (patent pending) for the 24-row planter to significantly reduce hitch weight and make it easy to move in and out of fields. The flip axle hydraulically swings forward for transport, reducing the hitch to axle distance by nearly 5 feet for a tighter turning radius and reduced hitch weight. The toolbar has been raised to provide higher in-field clearance and to improve residue flow. The brand new row unit has a rugged cast iron design, providing the necessary stiffness for perfect seed place­ ment, even in today’s toughest no-till fields. In addi­ tion, row unit vertical travel has been increased to 12”, keeping all row units in the ground on steep slopes and terraces. The Kinze 4900 series planters will be available for orders in May 2013 for use during the 2014 planting season. The 4900 series planter can be used for corn, soybeans, sugar beets, sunflowers and milo when planted on 30” rows. Farmers can select from a variety of technology and accessory options to fit their needs. Additionally, all 4900 models feature ISOBUS compat­ ible electronics.

Save Time and Hay with Convenient Bale Feeder Attachment

uses include temperature sensitive products such as insulating foam, windows and door sealing tape, adhe­ sives, grease cartridges, and more.

The patent-pending Double Up Feeder attachment mounts to most round and square bale feeders. The Double Up feeder holds a reserve bale up above the feeder, allow­ ing the bale to drop, and the cattle to be fed with a simple pull of a lever.

With the Double Up you can save time and fuel by starting your trac­ tor half as often, while having less waste of expensive hay. Even people without any tractor experience can feed livestock with the Double Up. Don’t start the tractor up, just pull the lever.

________________________ Greasing in Cold Weather is Easy With a Warm Cartridge It's difficult to keep grease, foam, caulk and other temperature sensitive items warm enough to flow freely or stick for efficient applications in cold weather. The Caulk Warmer, a new product recently introduced to the construction industry, solves this age old problem. Warm lubricants and adhesive materials flow more freely, resulting in smoother application, better pen­ etration and secure sealing. But when lubricants don’t flow, tapes and adhesives don’t stick and foams don’t spray. Time and money are both sacrificed. Primitive strategies for keeping materials warm in buckets of water or on the de-frost vents of running trucks are wasteful and inefficient at best. This heavy duty nylon canvas bag has a backstrap with a “quick disconnect” for looping over railings, plugs into 120V AC or 12V DC inverter, requires only 50 watts of power, and has a convenient cord storage pouch on the front. There is a convenient on/off switch and the internal temperature is thermostatically controlled. A Caulk Warmer holds 12 (1 case) standard size caulk tubes, or 7 quart size tubes, or 12 sausage size tubes, or 7 cans of foam, or a case of floor tile. Other suggested

Massey Ferguson Introduces Pro DM Series Mowers Massey Ferguson® introduces the Pro DM Series mow­ ers, providing hay producers with another choice in efficient, durable disc mowers to keep hay operations on schedule cutting the most tonnage possible each season. Each of the new Pro DM Series mowers from Massey Ferguson works fast and efficiently to cut hay at the highest-possible capacity, and is built with durability and safeguards that reduce downtime, maintenance and manpower. Ranging from 8 to 11 1/2 feet in width, the three new mowers (DM1358, DM1361 and DM1362) deliver the smooth, clean cut expected from Massey Ferguson products. Dean Morrell, product marketing manager, Hay and Forage, says, “We’ve deliberately built this mower tough, with safeguards like the driveGUARD cutterbar protection system, to keep operators out of the shop and in fields cutting hay.” The new driveGUARD cutter bar protection system pre­ vents damage to the internal parts of the cutterbar. If the mower hits a rock or large object, the shear disc will break, leaving the mowing disc in place and keeping parts from flying off, extending the life of the cutterbar. Shear discs can be replaced in just minutes, without leaving the field. The cutterbar’s modular design allows quick and easy servicing in the field if needed, and a standard quick-change knife system minimizes down­ time needed for replacing cutterbar knives. The low-profile cutterbar on Pro DM Series mowers is lightweight and shaft-driven, boasting a double-bevel gear design. This lets the mower run at a shallower angle, for a fast, clean cut. The Pro DM Series disc mowers also feature individual compact angular gears that provide an extremely smooth power transfer to all discs, for less wear than a conventional gear drive, ensuring a longer and more reliable cutterbar life. Pro DM Series model DM1358 and DM1361 mowers also may be equipped to help hay dry down more quick­ ly with the fast, easy addition of Massey Ferguson’s KC Tine or RC Roller conditioners. While tine conditioners on many disc mowers scuff the waxy coating off the hay stem, the unique coil design of the KC Tine conditioner gently fluffs, conditions and aerates the crop for ac­ celerated drying times. It takes just moments for either of these conditioner attachments to be removed or reattached. To learn more contact your local Massey Ferguson dealer or visit www.masseyferguson.us.

The number one reason men don’t want to do estate planning is, “It’s an easy thing to procrastinate about.” The second biggest reason, which has a lot to do with the first reason, is the same reason, but twofold in nature. Men do not like to go where they are not sure they will know what is being discussed and they don’t like to look or feel embarrassed or foolish in front of someone about questions these men think they should have all the answers to. You know, “I’m a man, I know what I want to do with my stuff, my land, my etc.” followed by grunting and a lot of beating on their chests. The two-fold nature of this is men don’t want to go in, get asked a lot of questions they don’t know the answers to and because they don’t really know, they may end up agreeing with something that they really don’t understand - which might be ultimately wrong for the family farm. In other words, they wouldn’t want to walk into a machinery parts store and say “My combine is making this ‘pingy or kind of tingy kind of sound from somewhere by the back’ – what part do I need to fix it?” A12

Why Men Avoid Estate Planning Issue Imagine how embarrassed they would be when the counterman looked at them with a “Say what?” expression. No, they want to walk in and say “I opened up the combine, there’s a bearing loose on this exact pulley, and I need a new set of bearings to make this combine work right and solve the issues. Give me parts 123AB and I’ll take it home and fix it.” Men are problem-solvers and don’t like going in to anything they don’t think they can find a solution to and fix it themselves – with a few exceptions.

They may have some issues – which they realize a professional went to school for and interned in – and they may defer to the doctor, or lawyer or accountant – to give them good advice on how to go about solving their problem – although my own father was commonly known to argue with his doctors. In any case, be gentle with him and try to explain to him that you just need to go in to get some information so that he can make an informed decision about how he wants to handle his estate planning.

Men are problem-solvers and don’t like going in to anything they don’t think they can find a solution to and fix it themselves. If that doesn’t work, you make an appointment with someone, you put him in the car and say, “We’re going.” Both methods can be effective based on how you’ve learned over the years as to the best method. An eighty-year old man, when I commented on how happy he and his wife were told me “If you want a happy life, keep a happy wife.” In other words, it seems women have quite a bit of control over what happens, or what needs to happen, and what will happen with men. I think it’s essential women take charge of this problem, because, like as not, someday this problem is going to get dropped in your

lap and you’re going to be hopping mad these things weren’t taken care of before he died. So, rather than not getting your estate planning done, perhaps you’re the one who has been using him as a reason to procrastinate yourself. You know how to get him to do the things he needs to do – you just got to get determined about it. In my world, I would guess that ninety percent of men arrive in my office because their wife got them there – but in one hundred percent of the cases, the men arrived thinking it was ‘their’ idea. Food for thought. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Do you have questions about estate planning? Need to know more about how you can “Keep the Family Farm in the Family”?

In the Barn with

equipment & livestock production services

By Kelly and Leah Daniels Kelly and Leah live on an acreage in north central Iowa and work with farmers and clients across the country.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with farmers – mostly livestock producers – for many years and we recently began to notice something interesting: Farmers like to ask a lot of questions. They want to know about which things are best for their operation, what’s new out there, how different brands compare, how they can save money on input costs, and so on. And they appreciate having someone knowledgeable and down-to­ earth to talk over options with. That’s why we formed Hedgewood as an independent com­ pany, so we can help customers learn about all their equipment choices and choose the gates, feeders and other products that will make their job easier and maybe even save money through efficiencies. At Hedgewood, our recommen­ dations are based on having ac­ tually used many different types of equipment in production situ­ ations, rather than on how much profit we can make from one brand or another. If it’s right for the farmer, it’s right for Hedgewood. The work that U.S. farmers do helps people around the world live healthier and safer lives than ever before. We feel blessed to be able to work in agriculture every day and to be able to use our skills in keeping agriculture strong. – Kelly and Leah

&A

In the Barn Q

When the opportunity to write this column for the Farm & Livestock Directory came along, we wondered what farmers would like to read about. Then we realized that they have been telling us what they are interested in every day through the questions they ask about their facilities and operations. So, what better way to provide information to farmers than by answering their questions? These are based on those actual questions from Hedgewood customers, though they may be edited to take out some of the more “colorful” language. This is a family publication, after all. If you have a question you’d like Hedgewood to take a swing at, please drop a line to the editor of this fine publication and we’ll do our best to sort it out.

Q

I’m a grain farmer, but I have hog barns because the manure is great fertilizer. Since I’m not around other hog operations, how can I know that I’ve got the right kind of equipment and systems in my barn?

A. We’ve worked in and designed a lot of different hog facilities, so we find it’s helpful to walk through the barn with the farmer and talk about what’s aggravating to them and what they would like to improve. Not only does this let the farmer blow off a little steam, it helps them see the operation through fresh eyes, enabling us to see the real problems and have a clear picture of how to design a solution that will make a real difference. Plus, we must admit, it’s a lot of fun to go back to the barn with the farmer after the project is complete and remind them of how aggravating it was before Hedgewood was involved. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Q

I hate load-out. It’s always a struggle, it takes way too much time and I feel like I’ve been beat up by the time the last pig is on the truck. Is there any way to do it better?

A. There are a combination of factors that make the difference between an easy load-out and a knock-down, drag-out battle of wills. If a 280-pound pig decides he is going left down an alley when you want him to go right, no amount of whooping, hollering and gold medal wrestling moves is going to change his mind. This is a frustrating and risky situation for both the producer and the pig. Because of the work of animal behaviorists like Dr. Temple Grandin, we now move pigs a lot differently than our dads or granddads did. Today we work with a pig’s natural tendency to move toward areas that appear safer than where they are.

We can configure gates and train our customers to quietly and calmly ease pigs into the load-out, rather than forcing them into a situation they would naturally avoid, saving the whooping and hollering for the rodeo. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Q

I heard about a producer who had a power outage and lost a bunch of pigs. That’s pretty scary. How do you prevent something like that?

A. Catastrophic death loss is a terrible thing on many levels. Of course, the pigs suffer the most, but for the producer it can mean costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and the terrible task of cleaning out the barn. Ventilation is typically the culprit but not exactly the way you might think. Although pit gases can be deadly, on a hot day pigs without ventilation can succumb to hyperthermia – excessive heat – within 30 minutes of a power failure. This is a situation that should be prevented at all cost and can be, using the latest generation of controller and back-up generator systems. And, no, running a generator with your tractor’s PTO won’t work if you’re an hour away at your son’s basketball game when the power goes down. We’ll answer more questions in the next edition of In the Barn with Hedgewood. Thanks for spending a little time with us. For more information, please visit us online at www.hedgewoodconsulting.com or call Kelly Daniels at 515-851-9194. Kelly Daniels is a long-time pork production manager and, more recently, worked with farmers as an equipment representative for one of the oldest names in the industry. Leah Daniels is the owner of NewsWorks, a strategic communications firm that provides marketing and public relations services to companies and associations, primarily in the pork industry. She recently worked with the National Pork Board to create an on-farm crisis communications tool for that enables farmers to effectively manage through incidents that can impact lives and reputations.

Domestic Violence In Rural Areas

A

recent report by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV News for January 30, 2013 at: www.nnedv.org) indicated that in 2012 69% of 56 state and territorial domestic violence coalitions experienced cuts in funding, while 88% of these coalitions experienced increases in requests for services. The failure of the U.S. House of Representatives to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act is mostly responsible for the federal portion of the financial shortfall, but the NNEDV report also cited reductions in state funding and private contributions. The report said the financial cuts place domestic violence victims in jeopardy. Lingering effects of the economic recession may have contributed to both the increase in need for services and the downturn in private contributions to domestic violence intervention programs. Domestic violence in rural areas differs from urban areas. In August 2012, Minnesota Public Radio indicated that domestic assaults are reported about half as frequently in rural areas, but the actual incidence might be higher than in urban locations. The Nebraska Domestic Violence Sexual Assault Coalition says domestic violence in rural areas is underreported because of fear of repercussions from the perpetrator, and sometimes from the local community if a “family secret” were to become public. They cite as additional reasons: inability to obtain transportation away from the scene of the violence, cell phone transmission problems in remote locations, lack of resources such as safe havens, and lack of knowledge of who to call for help. Still other abused persons remain with their partner because they are financially dependent on that person, their religious beliefs or cultural expectations require submission or they feel an abusive partner is better than none. Farm crisis telephone hotlines/helplines I have worked with report relationship problems as the most common reason farm residents contact the crisis services. During episodes of financial pressure, the volume of callers increases. How is domestic violence defined? Domestic violence involves physical abuse and often a pattern of controlling behaviors that are directed by a spouse or relationship partner against the other person. It could entail withholding access to money, friends or the telephone.

April 2013

Research studies indicate that 60-90% of the time the victims are female. Women are about two thirds more likely to be injured physically or killed than men. Regardless of who initiates the violence, the male partner is much more likely than the female to be charged as the perpetrator and to be removed from the home. This is because males are usually physically stronger and more likely to commit harm. In cases where it is dangerous for the victim to remain in the home, the woman and the children usually are protected by judicial restraining orders and offered shelter by domestic violence programs. Partners in a healthy relationship can argue and resolve disagreements, but the dominant partner in an unhealthy relationship may demand compliance with his or her wishes and use intimidation to secure submission. An abused victim submits out of fear of doing anything that triggers the aggressor’s anger. That is why law enforcement officials and anyone dealing with domestic violence must be careful to learn the full story and protect any suspected victim. Perpetrators sometimes disregard restraining orders and surreptitiously stalk their victims. Sometimes one person sets out to humiliate a partner by attacking that person so the individual reacts by doing something that can be claimed is abusive and lose face when the incident becomes public knowledge. Still other couples fight so they can experience the “thrill” of making up. They sometimes stay together even when legal interventions and counseling have been undertaken. The unhealthy relationship usually ends only when one partner has been jailed, injured or killed, or goes into permanent hiding.

parent as a victim or perpetrator. Help with domestic violence issues is available through at least two national telephone hotlines and websites: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or www.thehotline.org, which is the National Domestic Violence Hotline, and 1-800-621­ HOPE (4673) or www.safehorizon.org. The SAFE website has a “quick escape” procedure for helping assure safety from surveillance. Each state has a domestic violence coalition and a list of regional shelters and other resources that can be found by contacting the national hotlines or websites or by conducting an online search with the words “domestic violence” and the name of your state. Use a public computer so the identity of the user cannot be traced by a perpetrator. Domestic violence is a case of “better safe than sorry.” Dr. Michael R. Rosmann brings the perspective of a farmer in “Farm And Ranch Life”. Dr. Rosmann grew up on a mixed grain and livestock farm in Western Iowa where he experienced enjoyable hard work and 4-H, and witnessed the stresses that accompany farming and farm life. Dr. Rosmann developed the first mental health response in Iowa to the Farm Crisis of the 1980s. In 2001, Dr. Rosmann, along with partners in seven states, founded the nonprofit network, AgriWellness Inc. AgriWellness conducted research and provided counseling services to farm people. It became clearer that a specialized field – agricultural behavioral health – was needed to respond to the unique problems experienced by farmers, ranchers and others involved in agriculture.

Every domestic violence situation is different and physical separation of the partners is almost always necessary. Long before a physical injury or death has occurred, the victim and sometimes the abuser, has already experienced psychological damage. It becomes harder to trust a partner. Small reminders of violence trigger anxious behaviors. Children are also seriously impacted by witnessing parents participate in violence. Research shows children tend to copy their parents’ behaviors when they deal with their own relationship conflicts. They might emulate either

Do the job better with Ag Shield equipment! Haying

Rolling Protect expensive machinery-get rocks and root balls out of your way. With sizes from 17 -70ft, 42"x9/ 16" drums, and non welded 2 Y2 inch field replaceable shafts, Ag Shield's new LandRollers combine the best of the others out there with exclusive features that set us apart from the crowd. Narrow 12 'li' transport on multisection machines for safer moving Leveling blades (shown above -up to 46' units) make quick work of rodent

mounds-no more dirt in hay or grain. PowerFold lets you open to field position with no driving. Hook them directly behind your seeding equipment and do every thing in one pass. Save fuel, time and labor and ensure that your fields are firmed and leveled on time.

Hauling Trying to keep too many trailers running? The MultiTrailer is Ag Shield's way to keep your investment down and still be able to do most of the hauling at your place. Change the flat deck into a round bale hauler in less than one minute. Load your tractor and loader using the built in ramps and head to the field. Unload the tractor, raise the decks, and start loading bales. When you get to the yard, you can drop one row of bales at

April 2013

a time - no restacking. With the side decks dropped, you are legal width. This rig runs on 7000 lb. Torflex rubber suspensions with brakes on all wheels no more rattling springs! MultiTrailer is available in 26 or 31 foot lengths with 2 or 3 axles. DOT approved across North America.

www.farmandlivestockdirectory.com |

Want to reduce drying time and improve hay quality? The ReCon 300 reconditions your hay and leaves a fluffy swath that dries in about half the time as non ReConned hay. You beat the weather and get top quality hay. If you sell hay to dairies or the horse market, your customers will appreciate the higher quality hay you get with a ReCon. Animals love the softer hay, so there's little waste. ReCons have been used successfully in 33 different forage crops from coast to coast, as well as Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Features include larger crimping surface and higher roll pressures than other machines. High speed steel on steel rolls ignore most rocks and don't wear in the middle giving much longer life than rubber rolls. The dual drive chains run in oil for longer life. An optional spinner spreader (tedder) spreads from 8-20 ft (in cab adjustable). The thinner layer of hay will dry even faster.

April 2013


By Paula Vogelgesang

Spring is Coming! Barefoot days are coming fast, and the child in me is looking forward to shedding my shoes and walking barefoot in the new grass in my front yard. I look for the signs of the tulips coming through in the small garden beside the wood shop, and the strawberries, rhubarb and asparagus peeking out of their winter covers in the big garden. I also have some daffodils planted in the front yard and am hopeful that the deer didn’t destroy all of them. But, before I can do that, I have a laundry list of stuff that has to be done first, so I need to spring into action (no pun intended). There are things that need to be done before I can ‘play’. The number one item on my list my favorite springtime activity of all: Starting the plants in the greenhouse. I put heat mats under the seed starter trays; it only takes a few days for the seedlings to come up. The real work begins with transplanting the seedlings once they get their first true leaves. I use a sharp pencil to loosen each of the tiny seedlings from its nest in the starter tray. Then I nestle each one into fresh potting soil in the little cells they will grow in. I then give them a good drink of water and set in the full sunlight of the greenhouse. This works pretty well on nice warm days, which can be in short supply at times, so I use the heat from the wood stove in the workshop to heat the greenhouse and keep the young plants warm. A cheap box fan moves the air from the workshop to the greenhouse via an open window. Aside from the daily watering, things go pretty easily until planting time. Once I get the plants well started, and if the snow is gone and the ground is thawed, I get the garden tilled (#2 on the list), and maybe get some early radishes and lettuce started. I can’t set out any plants until the very end of May because we normally will have frosts until then. (Sometimes, even into June.) But, I can get the yard raked, which is a chore I break up into about 4 days (#3 on my list). Next, I dig up the flower beds to make spaces for the annuals, and check to see how many of the perennials I have left (item #4 on the list). I’ve had some plants for 50 years that came from family and friends, and I am hoping that the drought of last year and the influx of deer and wild turkeys didn’t take all of them. I’m not sure how many survived. Next on my list is chore #5: The dreaded Spring Cleaning! I’d much rather be outside, but the inside needs a makeover too. Cleaning cupboards and drawers of excessive stuff, which will go into a ‘donate’ box. I also wash all the winter quilts and bedding and then hang them outside to dry in the fresh air and sunshine before storing them away for the summer. (There is nothing better than sun-dried bedding!) Last spring, I started repainting my basement walls and hope to finish the job this spring. I will also rearrange the storage tubs on the shelves, and this time, I WILL label them so I don’t have to spend half a day looking for something I know is stored away! With all the ‘fuss and feathers’ that come along with spring and the workload of calving, planting, fencing, etc., we really do need to slow down at times and enjoy our world. Walking is my way of slowing down to see what nature has to share with me each and every day. A bluebird making a nest high in the top of the old elm tree, a new batch of kittens peeking out from underneath the blooming current bushes, new baby calves playing a game of tag around their mamas. A magnificent Bald Eagle soaring overhead the pine trees to the south of me along the edge of the Badlands, such are the joys of springtime in the country. If you have children, grandchildren or even a stray neighbor kid or two, take the time to share your world with them. It’s priceless to see the world through the eyes of a child and doesn’t cost anything but a little time. Till next month...

‘Mother-Up’ Tips for Calving Season, How To Freeze Celery, Make Your Own Wasp Killer and More! I recently returned from the Black Hills Stock Show in Rapid City, South Dakota, where I visited with many ranchers and farmers over the nine days. I was asked to repeat the following ‘MOTHER-UP’ concoctions from last year by a cattle man preparing for calving season.

Shared by a rancher last year:

Good Wasp Killer Spray

“An inexpensive ‘MOTHER-UP’ for cattle is plain old VAPORUB; Vicks is one of the brand names, but I’ve used the cheap generic brands and those seems to work just as well. They both work due to the menthol in the rub. I rub some on the back of the calf, around it’s ears and around the tail. Then, I stuff as much as I can up the cow’s nose (this part is done in the head catch). I put them in a dark pen back in the corner of the barn, and have had over 20 cows take calves that wouldn’t have any other way.”

To kill wasps in their nests, mix 1 cup BLUE powdered laundry detergent with 3 cups of warm water, mix well and spray the nests early in the morning or late in the evening when the adults are back in the nest. The wasps in the nest will die immediately. – submitted by KL, SD

Another one was suggested a couple of years ago and folks said it works well and isn’t as hard to get on the cow (which could be important if she’s ‘on the fight’). The cowboy who told me this one said: “I go to yard sales or thrift stores and buy up partly used bottles of ladies perfume. I then mix a couple of the scents and smear them on the cow’s nose and on the calf. If you use a different mixture for each pair, the cows don’t get confused. It does work!” (I would think that either one of these would work just as well for baby lambs, goats, or even colts.) –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Bum Calf Feeding Solution We also had a suggestion about feeding a calf on the bottle when it didn’t want to cooperate. The lady said to just put some molasses on the nipple with your fingers and then put a little bit of the sweet stuff right in the calf’s mouth and they will go right to sucking. (I also am personally in favor of used playpens for keeping said critters confined when they are in the house. A pad of old newspapers works pretty well to soak up any ‘backside’ output from the critters.) –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Freezing Celery and Parsley (This was a new one for me!) I’ve just discovered that one can freeze celery–the same as you do parsley–which I’ve done for years. Simply cut the celery into small pieces and put it in an old ice cube tray, cover with water and then let it freeze solid. Then, take the cubes out and store them in a plastic freezer bag. You can add the celery to any soup or stew simply by adding the frozen cubes. I’ve also added it around the roast beef when I added the carrots, onions and potatoes. You can also freeze that half jar of pimentos that didn’t get used up. Simply freeze them in the jar they came in, because there is enough air space that the lid isn’t going to buckle. My expensive peppers are ready for the next use this way. – submitted by AS, AZ –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

‘Tangle Tamer’ for Man or Beast Use equal parts of the cheapest possible hair conditioner, white vinegar and water to tame tangles for show animals, kids hair or even a doll’s hair that needs de-tangled. – submitted by LJ, MN

(This hint was shared by a young man who uses this every year, but his mother mixes up the detergent/water solution and he didn’t know the name , only that it is blue. I intend to try this this spring; one of my son’s is terribly allergic to wasp stings.) –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Pet Marking Stains To keep a male dog from marking a spot on a floor or wall, spray a little water on the spot and then dust well with black pepper. The pepper will keep them from returning to that spot. – submitted by JH, SD (Another lady said to keep tom cats from spraying on the side of her house, she loaded a spray bottle with hot pepper sauce mixed with a little water and sprayed the side of her house with that. She said that the smell and the sting of the ‘hot’ ingredient in the sauce sends the critters elsewhere.) –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Good General Cleaner Mix the following things together to make a really wonderful general cleaner that works–and is cheap. * 4 ounces Dawn dish detergent * 4 ounces white vinegar * 4 ounces hot water Good for cleaning almost anything that needs scrubbing. –submitted by GR, MD –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Ironing Spray Mix together one cup of water, 10 drops of essential oil and one ounce of vodka to use as a spray when you iron clothes. – submitted by VM, SD (I asked about the combination and she said that the vodka kills any musty/stale smell on clothing.) –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Poison Ivy Rash Healer A lady from Hot Springs, SD shared that she used a lather made from the old laundry standby FELS NAPTHA LAUNDRY BAR to heal the rash from a bad case of poison ivy. She said she had been to the doctor and the medication given to her just wasn’t doing any good, and in fact, it was getting worse until an elderly friend told her about the soap lather. She said she just spread the lather over the rash and let it dry. It took a couple of days, but the itching quit and the rash went away. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– As always, if you have tips or ideas to share, send them to me at PennyWise, Box 518, Kadoka, SD 57543 or email me at pennywise@gwtc.net.

by Barbara Tako Motivational speaker and author of Clutter Clearing Choices: Clear Clutter, Organize Your Home, & Reclaim Your Life (O Books, 2010).

How To Reduce Emotional, Inherited, or Gift Clutter Have you ever inherited or been gifted with stuff you can’t use? Have you hung onto items because of emotional attachments? If you feel like you are “stuffocating” (suffocating from all of your stuff—a new word mentioned at my local simple living group meeting), what can you do? How do you decide what to do with Grandma and Grandpa’s or Mom and Dad’s stuff, or all those well-intentioned gifts, hand-me-downs, items you are hanging onto for someone else, or things you keep because of a memory or feeling that they invoke? Try these fresh approaches to help deal with this clutter. Memories First, keep in mind that you keep the memory of a person alive in your heart, not in the boxes of their stuff that are sitting in your basement or attic. One way to reduce this kind of clutter is to keep a couple representative pieces rather than whole collections. One or two extra special mementos can remind you of someone and be more meaningful than excess boxes of their old things. It also might be more space saving to take photos and journal rather than to keep all of the actual items. Tell Don’t store memories, but do keep the stories alive. Don’t keep historical items in boxes in the basement or attic where they can get wrecked. Display them! Frame Grandma’s hand crocheted doily or collector plate and hang it in a place of honor in your home. It is very important to write the person’s name and story down on the backside of the frame to help keep it alive. When someone notices the item, tell your children, guests, and anyone else who will listen about the person’s life. Don’t Keep Misery Remember that people give each other things as acts of kindness. No one intends to add to someone else’s clutter misery. Appreciate the intent of gifts and inherited items but feel free to sell, donate, or re-gift items to others who might have more appreciation for them. If you hang onto old boyfriend letters or items that make you feel bad, for sure, let them go! Items can be given away on freecycle.org, or sold in the newspaper, on the Internet at craigslist.org or ebay. com, or taken by local estate sale or auction companies who will buy stuff outright or accept things on consignment. Check the yellow pages, and feel free to get more than one opinion on values. Look for similar items on eBay to see what prices people are getting for items similar to yours. Other People’s Clutter Clutter boundaries: Don’t let anyone else’s clutter drag you down. If people try to get you to store their stuff, it is fine to be generous with your space on a short-term basis. Establish a specific deadline for them to retrieve the item. Remind them once. And, finally, feel free to

dispose of this stuff as you see fit after the deadline has come and gone. What am I saying here? Parents, you are not responsible for indefinitely storing stuff for your grown children. It isn’t fair or respectful to you. Further more, do not “gift” stuff to your grown children with strings attached. It isn’t really a gift when you are basically asking for free storage under the loving guise of “keeping it in the family!” Give Respectfully What about our own giving? Many have heard the biblical quote, “It is better to give than to receive.” Perhaps we heard it as children when our parents tried to instill a generous spirit in us and teach us to share. In that context, it seemed better to give than to receive for moral and ethical reasons rather than for personal reasons. We can give generously to get rid of clutter. It allows us to get rid of extra physical stuff, as well as the emotional, and spiritual baggage that clings to our possessions. We get a feeling of satisfaction for sharing our excess with others. At the same time, we free ourselves from the weight of our clutter. Give respectfully, however, by giving to those who can truly use the items they receive. Do not dump on a fellow clutter bug because you know they too have a weakness for stuff. It isn’t kind, and you aren’t doing them any favors.

BEST VALUE ATV

If you are passing items down in your family, remember to pass down the stories too. Write down why these items have monetary or sentimental value. If you don’t, the treasures may get tossed with the trash. Also, it is kinder to specify who gets what today to prevent painful arguments after you are gone. Wait! Getting rid of clutter is not about getting rid of everything. The general rules are to keep what is beautiful, useful, and sentimental. Or, as you weed out, simply look at something and go with your gut response to it before your well-intentioned rationalizations kick in—you know, “It was a gift,” or “It was Grandma’s,” or “I paid good money for it…” If your gut just doesn’t like it, get rid of it! Life brings us enough stress without hanging onto items that increase stress. Period.

Does God’s ‘Upper Story’ Ever Change? I like to look back in time, especially to the Biblical times and compare the lessons God was trying to teach the Children of Israel to those of our ‘modern’ times of today. Names and faces have changed throughout time, as have the things we’ve built have changed. Modern technology has enabled us to make things we could not have envisioned 100 years ago, and we probably can’t begin to imagine the changes we will see in the next 100 years. But does God’s Upper Story change? What I mean by God’s Upper Story is: What were His intentions from the start of creation, and how did sin change that, and what did HE do to rectify it? And how can we reap the benefits of everything God has done for us already? God actually brought His Upper Story to us in a Lower Story that we can live in every day of our lives, and it can be a happy one knowing the plan God set out for us. Matthew 11:28-30… Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. That is the all-powerful God who took on the Egyptian Gods just before the Exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt. Our God was so powerful that He even convinced many Egyptians to go with the Children of Israel during the Exodus. This was after the last of the ten plagues, which was the killing of the firstborn and the Passover. What was the meaning of the first Passover and what did it point to? For the Israelites to be saved from killing the firstborn in their families, they had to find a lamb without blemish – and then butcher and eat it, and spread the blood from it on their doorposts. Hence, the blood of the Passover lamb would protect believers from the judgment of God. And it still does today! Who is the lamb today? It is Jesus Christ, who came to us 2000 years ago to take away the full penalty and punishment for our sins. Because of Jesus Christ, God has rectified the punishment we have to take for our sins spiritually. Not physically, which is still death here on earth, but God has prepared a place in Heaven for believers to live eternally. It is for those who believe in God’s Upper Story, and live it in the Lower Story every day of their lives. Life in the Lower Story can be happy when you know where you are going someday. God has given us all the information we need to know in order to have success. I John 5:13... These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

A Droll Ode To The Census

Thawing before the heater

During a cold spell this winter

The farmer innocently asked

What is that envelope on my desk?

“Nothing important,” was the answer

“You can look at it later.”

The cold weather stayed

That envelope still laid

Unnoticed, innocuous, harmless

Until the postcard appearance

Threatening dire consequences

If we did not return the census

Census, already? No Way!

How has five years gone by?

Look at all those pages

To do this will take us ages!

Never fear, question one is easy

There is no reason to feel queasy

I soon realized the farmer

Could do this best alone, undisturbed

Papers strewn everywhere

Looking for that perfect figure

After hours of groaning

The farmer did take his coat

Hey, you can’t leave now!

Oh yes, something must be done

The chicken and turkey amount

We must indeed count

But they are just pets

It doesn’t matter one bit

Fill in the little circles

Shading so perfect a swirl

Way back we were in training

With the Iowa Basic Skill testing

Back then we wondered its purpose

As we do now with the census

Which is more snoopy than a farmer

Interrogating a daughter’s

prospective suitor

If it’s is to determine who gets

The grants and subsidy monies

Then let us all do without

There would be complaints, no doubt!

Grant writers, special interest lobbyists

Would join the unemployment list

But as America’s self-reliance revived

Jobs aplenty will make us productive

Taxpayers would smile just a mite

At the lessoning tax bite

But since there must be good rationale

“PROFITS GROW WITH KNIGHTRO”

Ken E. Knight

Is There Really A Shortage of Jobs?

Or Just a Shortage of People Willing to Work?

If jobs are the ultimate social justice it is hard to understand why government doesn’t hand out jobs rather than handing out checks for not working. It is hard to find compassion for the jobless when the agricultural sector doesn’t even get a response to their plea for workers. A farmer in North Dakota, for example, ran several newspaper ads seeking farm hands — paying $35.00/hr. Though the non-response to the farmers ad was disappointing, it points out an even bigger problem. What is the government doing to insure job placement rather than insuring unemployment checks? We’ve just completed the second term presidential election, and jobs continue to be the nation’s major bone of contention. It would seem that agriculture (encompassing both production and food manufacturing), is the driving force behind job creation, and should receive more government attention than that of doweling out subsidy checks for not producing. Instead of focusing on putting people back to work, there seems to be more interest in welfare and food-stamps. How can such a misguided government solve the jobless situation, when it can’t resolve the fundamental cause and effect of joblessness? With their flawed thinking they continue to contend that by making the rich richer they will create more jobs. Though there is a shred of truth in this fairy tale, it is you and I, the customer that creates jobs! The customer is more powerful than all the entrepreneurs and investors combined. You can start and build all the companies you want, but if they aren’t surrounded by a healthy economic ecosystem, there is no chance of success. The ecosystem is a customer driven phenomenon that is often overlooked by both the government and the wealthy. Each and every one of us creates jobs, one purchase at a time. If all the wealth is in the hands of a few, it actually slows down job growth. So don’t buy this argument that only the entrepreneurs and investors can solve our nation’s huge unemployment problem. In fact, many investors have done more harm than good. Speculators, for example, take positions in the futures market that amplify price trends to the point of being extremely damaging. They often take financial positions that have absolutely no link to the actual commodity itself. When more than 85% of the contracts on the commodities futures market is held by purely financial players, you can imagine how volatile the affect is on agricultural employment swings.

This example shows to what extent our country has lost its sense of value, sense of reality, and sense of capitalism to serve the development of consistent employment. It has contributed to both food and job insecurity across the entire country. If jobs in agriculture are to be created, it must be customer driven and stability priced in accordance to supply and demand. It kind of goes like this— the company’s customers buy the company’s products, which in turn, creates the need for the employers to produce, sell, and service those products. If those customers are under paid or go broke, the demand for the company’s products will collapse. And the jobs will disappear, regardless of what the wealthy entrepreneurs did to create the company in the first place. Now, of course, entrepreneurs are an important part of the company creation process — so are investors, who risk capital in the hope of earning returns. But ultimately whether a new company continues growing and creates self-sustaining jobs is a function of a customers’ ability and willingness to pay for the company’s products — not the entrepreneur or the investor capital. Suggesting that rich entrepreneurs and investors create the jobs is like suggesting that unanswered employment ads contribute to unemployment. The farmer in North Dakota did all that he could to create a job, but it’s like saying that a seed creates a kernel of wheat. The seed does not create the wheat. The seed starts the wheat plant. But what creates the wheat is the combination of the DNA in the seed and the soil, sunshine, water, atmosphere, nutrients, and other factors that nurture it. Plant the seed in an inhospitable environment, and it won’t create anything — it will die. So, then, if what creates the jobs in our economy is customers, who are the customers? What can government policy do to make sure these customers have more money to spend to create demand and, thus jobs? The customers of most companies (especially agriculture) are ultimately the gigantic middle class. These hundreds of millions of Americans represent the bulk of this country’s buying power. If the wealth of the world were redistributed to the hands of many instead of being in the palm of a few, there would be no end to job creation. It’s time to let go of the notion that rich people create jobs, or to think that there aren’t jobs available. It’s common, ordinary people like you and I that create and fill jobs. And, according to my sources, there is no shortage of jobs, just a shortage of people willing to work.

PONY TALES By Ponty

Even The Incumbents Were Looking For Another Job As job’s continue to be the subject of interest in this past election year — dominating the news, the economy, and especially the lives of those directly affected — I thought it only appropriate to share my job story. Like many of you, unless you were the heir apparent to a second or third generation farm or ranching enterprise, a job was perhaps high on your priority list — not only to put food on the table, but to satisfy those intrinsic values of life that become hard to define. Stuff like family, friends, and location always enter into the equation. For me, the biggest obstacle was that of leaving North Dakota. I just never seemed to get over being homesick. After leaving home, a grain and livestock operation in western North Dakota, I went on to North Dakota State University, where I worked my way through college doing various jobs. But the best job of all was working for the Meat and Animal Science Dept. I did this part time, until graduating with a degree in meat and animal science, and then went on to South Dakota State University where I worked full time as an instructor of meat and animal science while taking graduate study courses. With abounding job opportunities, I was always torn between following my heart and that of being fiscally responsible to the challenges of greener pastures — a story line that goes something like this: continues page A23

Each of these job positions were held at the corporate level, and without exception, I loved every moment of each and every job. But I could never seem to find complete contentment. There was always that little something that kept pushing me somewhere beyond that which I was doing — becoming the story line of my life. May this insightful glimpse of my career (jobs) give meaning and purpose to every story line I’ve shared over the years.

product spotlightt Branson Tractors is proud to introduce their 20 Series Cab models

Today, things are different. Diesel fuel has tripled in price since 2000. Producers had to do something to make operating irrigation engines more affordable. They started mixing natural gas with diesel, and discovered they saved $80-100 on average per day, per engine.

The 20 Cab series tractor takes the R series heavyweight design and adds a hard cab for the operator’s convenience. The cab is fully enclosed with heat and air conditioning. These cabs provide shelter from all weather conditions. Whether it be cold and snow, wind and rain or relief from heat and humidity, these cabs make using our tractors comfortable. For comfort while operating your tractor, purchase a Branson Tractor with a cab. The 4520C and 5220C tractors are designed with a modern look. • The hood/bonnet has a design with an attractive front with rounded headlights • The hood latch is conveniently located in the front center. • No more prop sticks to hold up the hood. These tractors feature suspension support spring shocks for ease in raising the hood. These tractors also have several user friendly features, such as: • Easy access to pumps and hoses. • Bracket installed for easy access to the radiator screen for cleaning • The control valve is repositioned to the upper side of the fender. • Gear lever has been shorten to make operator’s platform more accessible • Parking brake is moved to the side of the seat. True to form, Branson has kept its tradition of keeping the sheet metal steel, adding valuable weight to the tractor for maximum productivity. Visit our website www.bransontractor.com for more information on this model as well as our other models ranging in horsepower from 24 to 80 hp. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Irrigation engines can be more affordable with a fuel mixer Realize saving of up to $3.00 per hour, per engine using a Dual Fuel Mixer

Diesel Conversion Specialists offers complete Cummins kit to repower Ford Power Stroke trucks Late model Ford Super-Duty owners like their trucks. However, the recent generation Power Stroke diesels are problem-prone. Once out of warranty, these engines’ head/ head gasket and other “thermal event” issues present Power Stroke owners with a difficult choice: An expensive repair bill or trading in the truck for something more reliable.

Just ten years ago, diesel fuel was the fuel of choice for irrigation engines. At that time, is was much cheaper than natural gas. Producers started purchasing diesel engines and abandoning natural gas.

For those Ford owners who want to keep their Super-Duty trucks but want timeproven power, Diesel Conversion Specialists

April 2013

www.farmandlivestockdirectory.com |

Don Hardy, owner of Don Hardy Fuel Efficient Engine Services in Floydada, Texas, developed a dual fuel mixer for diesel engines to combine natural gas and diesel. The fuel mixing process could then be done economically, by all producers. In the spring of 2007, Hardy and Leon New, an engineer with the Texas Cooperative Extension Service in Amarillo, tested this mixer on three engines in Floyd County. Two engines were Case IH engines–one waas a turbo-charged, and the other engine, a 4-cylinder non-turbo. The third engine was a John Deere 4T100. During the testing, straight diesel was used, followed by a diesel and natural gas mix. The dual fuel outperformed the diesel on all three engines. The Case 4-cylinder had a savings of $1.06 per hour; the John Deere saved $2.40 per hour, and the Case turbo saved a whopping $3.55 per hour. From a fuel savings standpoint, mixing propane and diesel might have been yet an even cheaper mix–but propane proved to be more cost prohibitive, and made the engines run hotter. Hardy says the mixture of natural gas and diesel is “the way to go”, and his mixer is designed to reduce the high costs of running irrigation engines. In the past few years, several producers using the mixer have reported their fuel cost savings has been very substantial. Hardy said producers have told him they have savings of over $3.00 per hour by using the mixer over straight diesel, and have had gains of 100-150 rpm from their engines. Another benefit they have reported is oil change intervals could be longer with the fuel mix versus the straight diesel. The Hardy Duel Fuel Mixer comes in a kit, and the cost is $1,595.

Unique heart formula saves countless lives

Jim was born into a family of herbalists stretching back to the 17th century. He learned these crafts during childhood, gathering medicinal herbs in the Austrian countryside with his grandmother.

Pond aeration windmills: Why American Eagle beats the competition, Reasons 1-7 (Out of 21)

Over 20 years ago Jim Strauss suffered a major heart attack and was told he would need bypass surgery or he would die.

We decided it keep it simple using proven technology. The water lube bearings and spiders are similar to what a deep well turbine is built with. The packing box and gland are similar to what a centrifugal pump would use, and the lower end has a greaseable bearing like a turbine pump would. We incorporated an adjustable swivel on the hitch to more easily adapt to ditches, canals and sump holes. Sand collars are used to deflect silt and sand away from the water lube bearing retainers.

suit your needs. Whether you need a backup power source for when the power goes out, or a mobile unit for on the job site, we offer what you want to fill your needs.

He was taught that tasting herbs could detect their medicinal value, but balance and proportion were the keys to producing formulas that were effective and immediate. Jim’s heart attack was not a fluke. He admits to having lived in the fast lane, ignoring the healthier lifestyle of his parents. He considers himself fortunate as nearly half of first time heart attacks end in death. Relying on knowledge acquired over the years, he refused the recommended surgery and instead put together an herbal formula which he immediately applied to himself with outstanding results. In 3 months, his 2” arterial blockage was cleared. Since that time, Jim has shared his formula with thousands around the world who are living testimonials to its curative powers. One of many clients recently wrote:

3. American Eagle: High volume is more important than high pressure. American Eagle puts out only 8 to 9 psi but can supply up to six diffusers. The competition: Diaphragm more pressure, but can only supply a maximum of two diffusers. 4. American Eagle: 8 to 9 psi will supply one diffuser 14 to 16 feet. The competition: Diaphragms will pump deeper but with very little volume of air. The deeper you pump, the less volume. 5. American Eagle: Bellow warranty, five years. The competition: Diaphragm warranty–ZERO! 6. American Eagle: 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1-year warranty with an emailed picture of the defective part–and it ships out FREE the same day. The competition: Diaphragm warranty policy states the part may need to be shipped from as far away as Canada to be evaluated–then determined if it is the customers fault. Any new part will be shipped at the customer’s expense for parts, plus shipping both ways. (This can take months. We know a Diaphragm customer still waiting over a year.) 7. American Eagle: Pump action is a huge 1 and 3/4” stroke some call intermittent. Most pumps are. The Eagles huge volume of air creates the most effective method of water circulation. More air, more circulation. The competition: Only 1/2” stroke, also intermittent. Less volume of air results in much less water circulation.

product spotlightt May Wes releases new models of Tractor STALK STOMPER

Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment gets even stronger

Product Expansions and Kitted Option May Wes Manufacturing is pleased to announce the release of three new Tractor STALK STOMPER designs to their stalk leveling product solutions. Now available are Tractor STALK STOMPER kits for: • Case IH Steiger Series (2012 and later, all models)

Ron’s Manufacturing has added two more bearings to their kits. This makes the kits even more heavy duty. Coulter kits from Ron’s Manufacturing converts any chisel plow to a year ‘round tool to prepare your fields. These kits are your year around tool for the perfect seedbed. The Vertical Tillage Attachment has a wide variety of capabilities, making it ideal for use in spring and fall.

• John Deere 9020 Series (all models) • New Holland T9 Series (with SmartTrax, models T9.615 and T9.670)

The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment is a smart investment in that it has multiple uses, which will ultimately produce savings in terms of time and money. It also has a low operating cost per acre and can be used in a wider range of conditions than most tillage tools. It operates at a relatively high speed of 6 to 10 MPH, which saves time. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment allows for quick mixing of manure and soil to prevent loss of nutrients and control odor. It can also be used for very shallow incorporation of fertilizer and select herbicides. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment can be equipped with a wide selection of coulter blades. Spaced on 6” centers, the coulter blades can be matched to achieve the desired amount of tillage and residue sizing. For more information contact Ron’s Manufacturing at 40582 187th St., Carpenter, SD 57322 or call 605-266-2177. E-mail info@ronsmfg.com. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Additionally, May Wes has made it easier to order their current Tractor STALK STOMPERS for specific series/models by providing a “Kitted” option as an alternative to the ‘Build Your Own Kit’. Listed below are the existing Tractor STALK STOMPER kitted options available:

In the fall, it can be used to lightly till the soil and incorporate and size residue, setting the stage for the spring planting season. It is also a practical way to dry out wet soils. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment works well in no-till conservation tillage, as well as conventional tillage operations, extending the growing season and creating better planting conditions. Vertical tillage prepares the soil to warm more quickly in early spring, energizing the seedbed for maximum growth and yield potential. In addition the Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment allows for shallow seedbed preparation which decreases the risk of excess soil density below the root zone.

Grease Buster™ cleans grease fittings The Original Grease Buster™, patented and made in the USA for 15 years, cleans grease fittings and bearings using penetrating oil and hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. The Grease Buster™ is the answer to the problem of plugged up grease fittings and bearings, a problem common in machinery. The tool consists of a heavy-duty adjustable hydraulic coupler, cylinder and a piston with a knob. Remove the piston, fill the cylinder by pouring in a penetrating solvent, start the piston back into the cylinder, place the tool onto the grease fitting and by tapping the piston (or utilizing the new pneumatic piston) force the solvent into the fitting/ bearing.

product spotlightt Revolutionary new wire fence stapling system designed for farmers and professional fencers

with approximately 114,000 square feet of manufacturing space. The additional space will allow AGI to install a new powder coat paint line and set up lean processes which will increase quality and productivity with the potential to double capacity.

friends and family. Excitement grew and Randy finalized his design. In early 2008, Stull Feeders proudly announced its new line of ATV and UTV-mounted feeders, all designed to give cattlemen - not the cattle control over the feeding process.

Available for the first time in North America, Wire Fence Stapler introduces the Stockade 400 wire fence stapling system designed specifically with the professional fencer, farmer, and rancher in mind. This new stapling system developed by Paslode New Zealand will save time and money. Simply load a rack of 2 inch or 1 3/4 inch galvanized barbed staples into the Stockade 400 and begin single or multi-wire fence construction. With a ground-breaking pneumatic (125 psi) fencing tool and hot dipped galvanized barbed fence staples designed to perform in all weather conditions Paslode has just made a tough job a whole lot easier!

“We believe that there is opportunity for significant growth in the farm and custom conveying market for seed, fertilizer and grain handling. The investment in a larger facility will enable AGI to capitalize on the growth potential with current products and increase our capability to bring innovative belt conveying technology to the market,” stated AGI President and CEO, Gary Anderson.

The 600 Lb. Auguer Fed Stull Feeder is our newest feeder. It has the same basic design as the 400 lb. feeder, but holds up to 600 lbs. of feed and is auger fed. A 12-volt motor can be wired to a battery or hooked up to a back-up battery. A 10-foot starter switch lets you operate auger from the driver’s seat. This feeder bolts to the bottom of UTV beds.

Total project costs will be approximately $8.7M and will be funded from the sale of the current Batco facility and other properties owned by AGI that are not currently in use. The facility move will happen in stages in order to ensure that there is no interruption in Batco sales and will be operational in the fourth quarter of 2013. “This is an investment in upgrading our founding company, which has continued to be a major contributor to AGI’s financial success. This investment is in line with AGI’s strategy to have dedicated manufacturing facilities that develop best in class products for our customers,” said Anderson. About Ag Growth International Ag Growth International (AGI) is a leading manufacturer of portable and stationary grain handling, storage and conditioning equipment including augers, belt conveyors, grain storage bins, grain handling accessories, grain aeration equipment and grain drying systems. AGI has eleven manufacturing facilities in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Finland, and its sales, marketing and distribution system distributes products in 48 states, nine provinces, and internationally.

The revolutionary Stockade 400 pneumatic stapler is light weight (8.2 lbs), tough, and has enough power to drive staples into even the hardest fence posts. Loaded with depth adjustment features the 400 wire fence stapler is designed for any fencing job, saving up to 70% of the time currently taken to hand hammer fence staples. That time saving is money in your back pocket. Contact your distributor, Wire Fence Stapler at www.wirefencestapler.com ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Experience peaceful, easy feedin’ with the 600 lb. auger fed Stull Feeder

Ag Growth International Inc. (AGI) has entered into an agreement to acquire a manufacturing facility in Swift Current, Saskatchewan from UFR Urban Forest Recyclers Inc. as the future site for Batco Manufacturing. Batco started in 1992 and was the founding company of AGI. Batco went from making two-wheel hand carts to manufacturing an extensive line of portable belt conveyors used in storage and handling facilities for grain, seed and fertilizer. Since its inception Batco has grown in sales exponentially through innovative products and a strong focus on the customer, which has enabled the current facility to reach capacity. Batco currently has a staff of over 70 employees and operates out of a 33,500 square foot facility. The new facility is located on 8.5 acres A32

Farmers and ranchers everywhere know firsthand the risks involved in trying to fill the feed troughs before the stampede of hungry cows gets close. “Peaceful” and “easy” are definitely not words generally associated with the chore of feeding farm animals. When Randy Stull, CEO and founder of Stull Feeders, was injured in 2006 while feeding his cattle, he decided there had to be a better way. During recuperation from his injuries, he used his time to design a product that safely and efficiently fed his cattle – a way to enjoy some peaceful, easy feedin’ while avoiding the stampede. In the fall of 2007, Stull Feeders started selling early versions of the Stull Feeder to

Founded in 1964 as a manufacturer of laminated arch rafters and beams, the company started out in Independence, Wisconsin as a three-man operation, with the original owners, Joseph Wozney and his two partners working nights after working their regular jobs. In the early 1970’s, they developed the LamPly Truss. It combines plywood, glulams, and dimensional lumber to make a truss that is stronger than a conventional web truss. This allows the builder to space them further apart to reduce erection time and labor costs. This design also limits bird nesting and improves ventilation in livestock facilities. Today, Corey Wozney and Steve Wozney, Joseph’s sons, operate the company. Starwood Rafters is still in Independence, Wisconsin and now ships its products anywhere in the U.S. For more information, contact Starwood Rafters, Inc., W24141 Starwood Lane, Independence, WI 54747.
