Winter bringing moisture, wild temperatures USDA spending $3M to Tim Leeds tleeds@havredailynews.com While the final yield of crops will — as always — depend on the spring and summer weather, Mother Nature has been dropping some moisture in north-central Montana since the last harvest. The weather has been up and down all winter, with temperatures swinging from 46 below zero in Hill County the weekend of Dec. 6-7 back to the 50s in January, then back below zero, then back up, then back down. Snow falls, then melts, then falls again, but at the start of February, officials said that enough had fallen that they estimated near normal stream flows this year, good news for irrigators including along the Milk River Valley. The USDA Natural Resources and Conservation Service issued a release Feb. 6 saying short storms the beginning and end of January — around the weeks of unseasonably warm temperatures — dropped abovenormal levels of snow. Havre Daily News/File photo Snow covers a cow and vegetation during an early December snowstorm in Hill County. Snow levels and precipitation levels are high in the Havre area, though what spring and summer will bring for area crops remains to be seen.

feed honeybees in Midwest M.L. JOHNSON Associated Press MILWAUKEE — The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday it will spend millions of dollars to help farmers and r a n c h e r s i m p r ove p a s t u r e s i n f i ve Midwestern states to provide food for the nation's struggling honeybees. Commercial honeybees pollinate an estimated $15 billion worth of produce each year. Many beekeepers bring hives to the Upper Midwest in the summer for bees to gather nectar and pollen for food, then truck them in the spring to California and other states to pollinate everything from almonds to apples to avocadoes. But agricultural production has been threatened by a more than decade-long decline in commercial honeybees and their wild cousins due to habitat loss and pesticide use. Colony collapse disorder, in which honeybees suddenly disappear or die, has made the problem worse, boosting losses over the winter to as much as 30 percent per year. The USDA hopes to stem those losses by providing more areas for bees to build up food stores and strength for winter. The new program will be "a real shot in the arm" for improving bees' habitat and food supply, said Jason Weller, chief of USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service. Dairy farmers and ranchers in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas can qualify for about $3 million to reseed pastures with alfalfa, clover and other plants appealing to both bees and livestock. Farmers also can get help building fences, installing water tanks and making other changes that better enable them to move their animals from pasture to pasture so the vegetation doesn't become worn down. The goal is to provide higher quality food for insects and animals. "It's a win for the livestock guys, and it's a win for the managed honeybee population," Weller said. "And it's a win then for orchardists and other specialty crop producers across the nation because then you're going to have a healthier, more robust bee population that then goes out and helps pollinate important crops." The USDA is focusing on those five states

because 65 percent of the nation's estimated 30,000 commercial beekeepers bring hives there for at least part of the year. With limited funds, Weller said, the goal is to get the biggest payoff for the investment. Corn, soybean and other farmers can qualify for money to plant cover crops, which typically go in after the regular harvest and help improve soil health, or to grow bee-friendly forage in borders and on the edges of fields. The program is just the latest in a series of USDA efforts to reduce honeybee deaths. The agency has partnered with universities to study bee diseases, nutrition and other factors threatening colonies. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack also recently created a working group on bees to coordinate efforts across the department. The work is already paying off with changes to once-common beekeeping practices, such as supplementing bees' diet with high-fructose corn syrup, said David Epstein, a senior entomologist with the USDA. He noted that the quality of bees' food is as important as the quantity. "If you are studying for exams in college, and you're not eating properly and you're existing on coffee, then you make yourself more susceptible to disease and you get sick," Epstein said. Tim Tucker, who has between 400 and 500 hives at sites in Kansas and Texas, said he may take some of his bees to South Dakota this year because the fields around his farm near Niotaze, Kan., no longer provide much food for them. "There used to be a lot of small farms in our area that had clover and a variety of crops, whereas in the last 20 years it's really been corn, soybean and cotton and a little bit of canola," Tucker said. "But those crops don't provide a lot of good nectar and pollen for bees." He hopes dairy farmers, beef cattle ranchers and others will sign up for the new USDA program by the March 21 deadline. It's not a "cure all," Tucker said, but "anything we do to help provide habitat for honeybees and for native bees and pollinators is a step."

Winter moisture: Snowpack is high, precip. sitting just above average for year ■ Continued from page 6 By Feb. 24, the level of precipitation for the water year rose to 2.67 inches, compared to the normal level of 1.98 inches. While long-range forecasts for weather in this region this year were inconclusive — Weather Service and Weather Channel both said the chance of having a wetter or drier and warmer or colder winter were about even — in the short range, Weather Service predicted a slight chance of snow through last weekend, again with colder temperatures. The Weather Channel also expected a slight chance of snow over the weekend, with another shot later this week. AccuWeather also expected some precipitation last weekend and this week, predicting, along with The Weather Channel, a warming trend late this week. AccuWeather further predicted highs back into the 50s by the second week of March.

Snowpack is high, streamflows expected to mirror that The levels of snowpack in the region, and much of the state, also bodes well for streamflows and irrigators, if the snowmelt occurs at normal rates and levels. A Feb. 25 NRCS report shows reporting sites in Montana recording levels of snow-

pack ranging from 90 percent to 110 percent of normal up to 125 percent to 150 percent of normal in some areas. The reservoirs in the Milk River Project that supplies water to irrigators — and some communities — in the Milk River Valley also were above normal levels last month. Lake Sherburne at the start of the St. Mary Diversion in the Rocky Mountains on Feb. 25 was 49 percent full at 33,677 acre feet of water. The 30-year average on that date is 30,104 acre feet. Sherburne stores water that is diverted through a series of dams, canals and siphons into the Milk River, providing about half of the water in the Milk in normal years and more than 90 percent in some drought years. Fresno Reservoir west of Havre, a flood control and irrigation storage facility of the Milk River Project, was 61 percent full Feb. 21 with 56,176 acre feet of water. The 30-year average for that date is 35,308 acre feet.

What will spring bring But a major question remains: What will the rest of the year see? In the last few years, late spring storms have dumped precipitation in north-central Montana, and brought flood disaster in three of four years — 2010, 2011 and 2013. In the fall of 2012, parts of the state espe-

cially along the southern tier were in drought or near drought conditions. Precipitation improved the water levels in some areas, but by spring, some regions were again starting to dry out. Conditions were better on the northern tier from the Golden Triangle east, although precipitation also was dropping off later in the winter. For Havre, the reporting station at the airport, recorded 2.73 inches of rain by May 1, nearly three-quarters of an inch above the norm for that day. Then the downpours hit. By June 1, Weather Service recorded nearly 5 inches more precipitation at the airport, bringing the year’s total to 7.32 inches. That compares to a total on that date of 6.81 inches in 2012, and nearly double the norm for that date of 3.8 inches. By June 25, the airport —  which appar-

ently missed a half-inch of rain the night before — station reported 11.21 inches for the year, compared with 8.33 inches in 2012 and more than double the norm of 5.43 inches. By that day, the airport station had received its entire year’s worth of normal precipitation, 11.19 inches. From May 15 through the first week of June, Beaver Creek Park received more than a foot of rain — 13.5 inches. While the downpour brought devastation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency back to the area, farmers over the summer said it also helped with crops. T h e N a t i o n a l O c e a n o g ra p h i c a n d Atmospheric Administration’s long-range forecasts, linked to the U.S. Drought Monitor, predicts about normal precipitation and temperatures for Montana from March through June.

“Despite the dominating dry spell, snowp a c k f i g u r e s o n l y s h owe d a s l i g h t decrease,” said Brian Domonkos, NRCS water supply specialist for Montana. “Montana is seeing its best snowpack since 2011 and the fourth-best snowpack of the last 10 years.”

Near-record precipitation — and flood disasters That follows a nearly record year for precipitation in the area, with the Havre reporting station for National Weather Service recording its third-highest annual precipitation since the recordkeeping started in 1880. Between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013, the reporting station at the City-County Airport west of Havre recorded 19.16 inches of rain in a year that, once again, included a presidential disaster declaration for the region due to flooding in the spring. Flooding in 2010 and 2011 also led to disaster declarations for the region. The second-highest year of moisture in Havre saw 20.69 inches in 1916 while the record was in 1884 with 25.67 inches of rain, Weather Service reports. And the recent high levels were spread throughout the region last year. Chinook saw 19.55 inches of precipitation in 2013, just an inch short of its record amount of 21.55 inches in 1927 — also the first year of records for the community.

Winter moisture: Consistently variable Continued from page 5 The records for Big Sandy, which started measuring in 1921, show 16.77 inches in 2013 with the record set in 1975 at 20.91 inches. Chester saw 17.33 inches of precipitation in 2013, with the record in 2010 at 19.22 inches. Records start there in 1900. Kremlin, which started keeping records in 1914, just missed setting a new record. The station there reported 18.14 inches of precipitation in 2013, with the record 18.91 inches in 1993. The recording stations for Rudyard, 19 miles south of town and 21 miles north, both of which started keeping records in 2000, saw in 2013 10.54 inches and 10.93 inches, respectively. The records for the north and south stations are 13.47 inches in 2010 and 25.48 inches in 2002, respectively.

Looking like a white winter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; once in a while The snow has been hit-and-miss through the winter in the Golden Triangle, with some areas receiving several inches in storms that miss or just drop a dusting in other areas, and many days with no precipitation. But the level, as in the mountain snowpack, has accumulated, though nowhere near record levels. The amount of snow has varied significantly throughout the county and the region.

For Havre, the reporting station recorded 4.5 inches of snowfall for the month by Feb. 24, just short of its normal level of 5 inches. January saw 7.2 inches of snow fall at the reporting station, just over of the normal value of 7.1 inches. By Feb. 24, the Havre station reported 31.6 inches since Dec. 1 and 37.4 inches since July 1.

Precipitation continues to fall The water value of the snowfall also continues to accumulate. By Jan. 31, the Havre station reported .42 inches of precipitation since the first of the year, a little more than the normal value of .33 inches. By Feb. 24, that crept up to .66 inches of precipitation, still above the normal level of .57 inches for that date. The levels for the water year, measured from Oct. 1 through Sept. 31, are even more above normal. By Jan. 31, the Havre station saw 2.43 inches for the water year, compared to the normal level of 1.74 inches for that date.

Near-record precipitation — and flood disasters That follows a nearly record year for precipitation in the area, with the Havre reporting station for National Weather Service recording its third-highest annual precipitation since the recordkeeping started in 1880. Between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013, the reporting station at the City-County Airport west of Havre recorded 19.16 inches of rain in a year that, once again, included a presidential disaster declaration for the region due to flooding in the spring. Flooding in 2010 and 2011 also led to disaster declarations for the region. The second-highest year of moisture in Havre saw 20.69 inches in 1916 while the record was in 1884 with 25.67 inches of rain, Weather Service reports. And the recent high levels were spread throughout the region last year. Chinook saw 19.55 inches of precipitation in 2013, just an inch short of its record amount of 21.55 inches in 1927 — also the first year of records for the community.

Winter bringing moisture, wild temperatures USDA spending $3M to Tim Leeds tleeds@havredailynews.com While the final yield of crops will — as always — depend on the spring and summer weather, Mother Nature has been dropping some moisture in north-central Montana since the last harvest. The weather has been up and down all winter, with temperatures swinging from 46 below zero in Hill County the weekend of Dec. 6-7 back to the 50s in January, then back below zero, then back up, then back down. Snow falls, then melts, then falls again, but at the start of February, officials said that enough had fallen that they estimated near normal stream flows this year, good news for irrigators including along the Milk River Valley. The USDA Natural Resources and Conservation Service issued a release Feb. 6 saying short storms the beginning and end of January — around the weeks of unseasonably warm temperatures — dropped abovenormal levels of snow. Havre Daily News/File photo Snow covers a cow and vegetation during an early December snowstorm in Hill County. Snow levels and precipitation levels are high in the Havre area, though what spring and summer will bring for area crops remains to be seen.

feed honeybees in Midwest M.L. JOHNSON Associated Press MILWAUKEE — The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday it will spend millions of dollars to help farmers and r a n c h e r s i m p r ove p a s t u r e s i n f i ve Midwestern states to provide food for the nation's struggling honeybees. Commercial honeybees pollinate an estimated $15 billion worth of produce each year. Many beekeepers bring hives to the Upper Midwest in the summer for bees to gather nectar and pollen for food, then truck them in the spring to California and other states to pollinate everything from almonds to apples to avocadoes. But agricultural production has been threatened by a more than decade-long decline in commercial honeybees and their wild cousins due to habitat loss and pesticide use. Colony collapse disorder, in which honeybees suddenly disappear or die, has made the problem worse, boosting losses over the winter to as much as 30 percent per year. The USDA hopes to stem those losses by providing more areas for bees to build up food stores and strength for winter. The new program will be "a real shot in the arm" for improving bees' habitat and food supply, said Jason Weller, chief of USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service. Dairy farmers and ranchers in Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas can qualify for about $3 million to reseed pastures with alfalfa, clover and other plants appealing to both bees and livestock. Farmers also can get help building fences, installing water tanks and making other changes that better enable them to move their animals from pasture to pasture so the vegetation doesn't become worn down. The goal is to provide higher quality food for insects and animals. "It's a win for the livestock guys, and it's a win for the managed honeybee population," Weller said. "And it's a win then for orchardists and other specialty crop producers across the nation because then you're going to have a healthier, more robust bee population that then goes out and helps pollinate important crops." The USDA is focusing on those five states

because 65 percent of the nation's estimated 30,000 commercial beekeepers bring hives there for at least part of the year. With limited funds, Weller said, the goal is to get the biggest payoff for the investment. Corn, soybean and other farmers can qualify for money to plant cover crops, which typically go in after the regular harvest and help improve soil health, or to grow bee-friendly forage in borders and on the edges of fields. The program is just the latest in a series of USDA efforts to reduce honeybee deaths. The agency has partnered with universities to study bee diseases, nutrition and other factors threatening colonies. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack also recently created a working group on bees to coordinate efforts across the department. The work is already paying off with changes to once-common beekeeping practices, such as supplementing bees' diet with high-fructose corn syrup, said David Epstein, a senior entomologist with the USDA. He noted that the quality of bees' food is as important as the quantity. "If you are studying for exams in college, and you're not eating properly and you're existing on coffee, then you make yourself more susceptible to disease and you get sick," Epstein said. Tim Tucker, who has between 400 and 500 hives at sites in Kansas and Texas, said he may take some of his bees to South Dakota this year because the fields around his farm near Niotaze, Kan., no longer provide much food for them. "There used to be a lot of small farms in our area that had clover and a variety of crops, whereas in the last 20 years it's really been corn, soybean and cotton and a little bit of canola," Tucker said. "But those crops don't provide a lot of good nectar and pollen for bees." He hopes dairy farmers, beef cattle ranchers and others will sign up for the new USDA program by the March 21 deadline. It's not a "cure all," Tucker said, but "anything we do to help provide habitat for honeybees and for native bees and pollinators is a step."
