Georgia Grown members deck the halls for Christmas event By Dallas Duncan Neither rain nor cold could stop Georgians from making their way to the first Georgia Grown Christmas Showcase on Dec. 14. Dozens of vendors decked the halls at the event, which brought in hundreds of visitors from around the state to finish up their Christmas shopping – and find plenty of produce to take home for supper. “I thought it was just a great way to do part of my Christmas shopping,” said Andria Ashley of Evans, Ga. “When I walked in the door, it just said ‘Christmas.’ Everything about it, every booth had an enticing, well-put together display. There was a lot of temptation.” There wasn’t much need to worry about what to eat for lunch during the showcase. Four Georgia vineyards hosted a wine tasting area, and Georgia Grown members handed out samples of Vidalia onions, peach tea, sausage, salad, desserts, sauces, jams, spreads and jellies galore. Ashley said she tasted everything offered and enjoyed everything she tried. At the Bettie’s Blueberry Jams and Jellies booth, passersby were See CHRISTMAS, page 12

TAKE 5: A sit-down with Santa Claus 1. What’s the best part of delivering toys on Christmas Eve? Delivering toys on Christmas Eve is the highlight of our year. The elves have been working all year making, wrapping and preparing the toys for my trip around the world. Knowing that we have made a wish come true for a good boy or girl makes all of us happy. I get particularly excited when I have placed a toy around the tree and then look back and think that in a little while it will be in full use. 2. What kind of cookies and drink should we leave out for you? Anything for the elves or reindeer? I don’t think that there is a type of cookie, cake or snack that I don’t love. I am moving so fast on Christmas Eve that sometimes I just get a nibble. But I know when I’ve arrived in Georgia because you have cookies and cakes with wonderful-tasting pecans and peanuts. Santa loves fresh milk, because it is so tasty and good for you. Occasionally, my little friends will leave a carrot or an apple for the reindeer. They really love that. Elves, on the other hand, love candy and Mrs. Claus makes wonderful things like Georgia peanut brittle CLAUS for them. 3. Did you buy any Georgia Grown gifts at the Christmas Showcase? Oh, did I ever! I came home with some wonderful sauces, jellies and a honey spread that tastes so good on toast. I also brought some blueberry juice that gives me so much energy! I also bought some alpaca wool socks to keep my feet warm on Christmas Eve. 4. How do you get into houses that don’t have chimneys? That’s an easy one. Santa, as you know, is an elf. I can magically make myself very small and slide under the door, unlock it and bring in my bag full of toys. I do just the reverse when it is time to leave. 5. Tell us the one thing you want for Christmas this year! I want boys and girls to be good and be kind to their family and to one another. That always makes me happy and being happy is what makes Christmas merry for me. A special thanks to Evan Karanovich, special assistant to the commissioner, and Harris Blackwood of the Governor’s Office for Highway Safety for helping put the Market Bulletin in touch with Santa Claus during his trip to Georgia on Dec. 14.

agriculture Letter from the Editor

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the farm Not an animal was stirring, not even in the barn. The coveralls were hung by the fire to dry, And we all waited for Santa Claus to drop by. My kids were nestled snug in their beds, While visions of Fords and Allis Chalmers danced in their heads. And Bonnie Jo in her curlers and I in my ball cap Had just settled down for a good night’s nap, When out near the pasture I heard such a ruckus, I leapt out of bed and reached for my musket. Out to the porch I flew like a flash, To see what on Earth could’a caused that loud crash. The moon in the sky was shining mighty bright And I squinted to see in all the white light. What I saw on the roof made me grasp the porch rails – Santa Claus on a tractor pulled by eight massive Clydesdales! That jolly old man looked a lot like Phil, my Pappy, As he let off the gas and said, “I’m so happy, happy, happy!” He called to his elves, who were riding a plow, And they ran to him just as fast as their little legs would allow. “Now Gary! Now Peaches, now Peanut and Piney, On Zippy! On Jersey, on Haygood and Honey!” To the top of the fence! To the top of the wall! We’ve got Christmas spirit to sow, there’s no time to stall!” Next thing I knew they were headed to the chimney Carrying so much stuff – how’d it all fit on that jitney? They had trucks for my boys and a saddle for my daughter, Those elves even brought my cattle bottled water! As I slipped back inside to watch the delivery, Santa and crew came down in their Christmas livery. He was dressed all in red, from his head to his boots, And his elves wore glittery green camo suits. Those burlap sacks full of toys they’d laid by the tree And as they unpacked them I couldn’t wait to see. There were fruitcakes from Claxton and pecans from Lane; A Market Bulletin subscription and bags of new grain. The elves giggled and laughed as they stuffed our stockings With so many Georgia Grown gifts, I just kept gawking. Santa Claus supervised the entire exchange, Eating cookies as he made himself at home on our range. He had a big smile and a round potbelly That shook when he laughed, like a jar of mayhaw jelly. He admired our Christmas tree, its lights all a-twinkle, And Bonnie Jo’s wrapping, done with paper that crinkled. He glanced at the clock and then at his elves: “Y’all, we better get a move on, ourselves. There’s all of Atlanta and north Georgia to visit, you know, So we must be on our way before that rooster crows.” They sprang up the chimney as quick as they came, Loaded on their tractor and Santa took the reins. But I heard him exclaim as they flew out of sight, “Merry Christmas to all Georgia agriculture tonight!” Dallas Duncan is the editor of the Market Bulletin.

He brought both to the showcase, along with samples of chicken salad made with his signature all-natural white sauces. “I sold the first bottle of this in April of this year, so we’re brand new,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity, getting out there in front of people, getting feedback, having a great time and introducing my sauces to the world and seeing what the world thinks.” He said any opportunity to tell people about Fly by South is “a good time.” “Considering the weather, I’m actually very pleased with how many people turned out. Sometimes if the show is too busy, you don’t get a chance to have good discourse and see what they think,” Cousar said. “That’s actually been very good today.” Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black said he was thrilled with the showcase. “It is our hope that events like these will encourage consumers to remember Georgia’s producers and agribusinesses during this time of year,” he said. “We’re grateful to all of our Georgia Grown vendors and guests that helped make the event a success and we look forward to hosting more events like these in the future.” Deb Ferguson of Hunter Cattle Company said the farm wants to participate in all Georgia Grown events such as this. “I love the festive music and I love that they are expressing the true meaning of Christmas, and I hope that never changes or stops,” she said.

Feral swine – more than just a nuisance Visit with a Georgia veterinarian in this monthly feature. This edition comes from State Veterinarian Dr. Robert Cobb in Atlanta, Ga.

Large animal rescue course teaches first responders to safely handle livestock By Dallas Duncan On the count of three, a team of firefighters, veterinarians, emergency responders and civilians pulled strips of heavy-duty webbing and safely pulled a downed horse to its feet. Behind them, a second team caught two llamas that escaped from a trailer accident. Though these were mock rescues put on for a training course in Macon, Ga., earlier this month, the danger of livestock emergencies is real, said Rebecca Gimenez, founder of the Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue courses. “We call them a low-frequency, high-danger event. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does it has a high-risk management opportunity for injury,” Gimenez said. The 2013 TLEAR class brought together people from a variety of backgrounds to learn skills to handle these events. Participants spent three days learning how to save horses, cattle, llamas and more from a variety of emergency situations. Gimenez has been teaching TLAER programs since 1994, when her partner met several veterinarians who were also firefighters. They told him when they received calls involving large animals, many responders didn’t know what to do. “Over the years, we started realizing that everybody had a vested interest in this from various areas of emergency response,” she said. Gimenez does the TLAER courses all over the world, including one recently in Australia. She hosts the Georgia class each December in Macon. She said it’s important for TLAER program attendees to get plugged into incident and emergency response command. “There was a huge wreck on 75 … A horse trailer narrowly avoided it and went down into an embankment,” Gimenez said. “I was in traffic. I couldn’t see the horse trailer. Even though I was 250 yards away, I had no idea there was a horse trailer involved because I’m not plugged into their emergency management.” Ray Palcynski, director of special operations training for University of Illinois Fire Service Insti-

tute, traveled across the country to attend the class. He piloted a four-hour awareness program based on the TLAER courses. “I grew up on my aunt and uncle’s farm. I just saw these problems happening and nobody could do anything about it that was any good,” Palcynski said. “It’s not like going out on EMS calls or thinks that keep us busy like car wrecks, but when it does happen you better be ready.” One of the key trainings of the TLAER course is animal behavior – how behavioral characteristics play into the ways horses, cattle, sheep, goats, llamas and other livestock must be handled during rescue. Participants herded cattle and walked large animals to put these skills into practice. Another important aspect was properly moving animals. Tying rope around an animal’s neck or limb and then pulling can injure or possibly kill the animal, whereas using heavy-duty webbing and pulleys around the torso is safer. Though aerial lifts and large machinery rescues look cool, Gimenez advocates the simplest and most calming methods of rescue. For example, if a horse is stuck in a pool, the pool can be drained so the horse isn’t swimming or at risk of drowning. Once the pool is empty, the horse can be given hay to calm him down while further rescue plans are decided. “It’s fun to use helicopter lifts, but it’s always better for the animal and for you to cut a path, build a ramp and give the animal some hay,” Gimenez said. “We will do some of the cool-guy stuff [during the course], but a lot of it is going to be simple manipulations, with just a single piece of webbing around their torso.” Though she said there’s no way to train for every type of response, the TLAER courses are designed to give community responders at least awarenesslevel training. “We are the ones that get called. We are the catch-all for every disaster, emergency, big and small,” said Kathleen Mullen, fire battalion chief for Minneapolis Fire, who flew down for the course. “Whether we know anything about it or not, we’re going to be going. It’s our responsibility to know.”

Free-ranging populations of wild pigs, or feral swine, exist in at least 39 states. Some estimate their numbers to be more than 4 million, with the largest populations located in California, Florida, Hawaii and Texas. Georgia’s large population of feral swine resides mostly in the river swamps of south Georgia, but can be found statewide. Today’s feral swine population is a combination of escaped or neglected domestic swine, Eurasian wild boar and feral pigs that have been captured and transported for the purpose of starting wild, free-living populations. The intentional movement of trapped feral swine resulted in extensive crossbreeding of feral populations, producing many variations. Feral swine regularly tear through livestock and game fences; consume animal feed; destroy field crops such as corn, milo, watermelon, peanuts, hay, turf and wheat; and, when given the opportunity, will prey upon young livestock and other small animals. Moving untested feral swine to new areas or allowing them onto farms with domestic pigs is illegal in Georgia and can have disastrous consequences to the commercial swine industry. Feral swine can be imported into Georgia only by a special permit issued by the state veterinarian. Three feral swine agreements are utilized by the Department in cooperation with the US Department of Agriculture. Individuals wishing to have feral swine facilities must meet strict testing, fencing and reproduction prevention protocols. The feral swine facilities are regularly inspected by the Department to assure compliance with the rules in order to maintain separation of feral swine from domestic herds. Feral swine are carriers of a number of diseases: swine brucellosis, pseudorabies, leptospirosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, trichinosis, plague, anthrax, African swine fever, classical swine fever or hog cholera and swine vesicular disease. USDA eradicated hog cholera from the US in 1976. Though they’ve been eliminated or controlled from US commercial production swine herds, some are still found in Georgia feral swine and can be readily transmitted to humans and other animals: Brucellosis is a bacterial infectious disease of animals and humans, caused by Brucella bacteria. Swine brucellosis is a reproductive disease, causing abortions in sows and infertility in boars. Infected swine are disease carriers for life and can serve as sources of infection. The only way to remove the disease is to detect infected swine through blood tests and cull the animals. In humans, the disease may mimic severe flu and may cause crippling arthritis or meningitis. Animals and humans are exposed to the swine Brucella bacterium by contact with infected blood, reproductive tissues and fluids from animals during farrowing, abortion or carcass dressing. Pseudorabies: Viral PRV attacks the central nervous system and is fatal to cattle, horses, goats, sheep, dogs, cats, raccoons, skunks, opossums and small rodents. Though not fatal in swine, it causes abortions and stillbirths. Pseudorabies is caused by a herpesvirus in swine. It is not related to rabies and it does not infect humans. The spread of PRV from feral swine to domestic cattle has also been documented in Florida and Texas. Feral swine are known to break into feed bunks and congregate around areas where supplemental feed is distributed, providing a source of contamination of feed and potential spread of infection through contact with domestic herds. Parasites: Feral swine are also host to several disease-causing parasites. These parasites include lung worm, kidney worm, thorny-headed worm, ascarid roundworm, hog lice and the parasite that causes trichinosis. The more feral swine populations increase and expand, the greater the chances that they may transmit diseases to domestic animals, wildlife and humans as well as destroy expensive crops. To minimize the threat feral swine pose to domestic swine operations, farmers should not introduce wild pigs into herds or attempt to market wild-caught pigs. Before transporting breeding swine, perform blood tests according to state and federal guidelines, and blood-test all new stock before adding them to existing herds. Fence out feral swine and do not butcher feral swine on the farm, or feed offal from field-dressed wild hogs to domestic ones.
