People in Agriculture: August 2011 — Bradford County woman makes Troy Fair a true family affair For 136 years, Bradford Countians have been lured by the smell of cotton candy and funnel cakes, the delight of riding the Ferris wheel and the carousel, and the thrill of competing with their best dairy cattle at the county’s largest event, the Troy Fair. Setting the stage: More than 50,000 people attend the Troy Fair each year, and for the past 12, Cathy Jenkins has led the team that organizes the week-long event by serving as the fair’s president. Cathy and husband Jon Jenkins, a fair board director, raised their daughters, Ciara Voorhees and Lacey Jenkins, in the fair community — a true family affair. Both remain actively involved with Ciara advising the junior fair board and Lacey serving as assistant treasurer. Cathy keeps a close eye on all the happenings at the fair and coordinates concessions, vendors and entertainment. Each year, she conducts extensive research to find acts and events

that will please fair-goers. She and Jon often travel to other fairs to glean ideas and information that will help improve their home fair. Providing entertainment: Every year, the Troy Fair brings in a popular, current national music act. This year, the fair hosted country music band Little Big Town and former American Idol contestant Aaron Kelly, a Pennsylvania native. “We want to keep improving the fair because entertainment is so limited for a small town of just 1,500 people,” said Cathy. “It’s also nice to show agriculture to at least 50,000 people each year.” While it may sound like a “onewoman show” Cathy is quick to point out that the 10 board directors and countless volunteers keep the fair afloat. They help coordinate all the fair departments from livestock to arts and crafts to vegetables and farm products to truck and tractor pulls and events.

Cathy and her staff have also modernized the Troy Fair technologically by maintaining an active Web site (www.troyfair.com), offering all event ticket sales online and printing and distributing the tickets themselves. The Troy Fair also features amusement rides and a carnival, as well as hundreds of food vendors offering everything from peach shortcake and candy apples to cheesesteaks and barbecues. The county dairy promotion committee makes milkshakes that are always crowd favorites. Cathy’s commitment doesn’t start and end with fair week. She also serves as administrator of Alparon Park, where the fair is held. The park hosts a variety of additional events each year, including the Endless Mountains Maple Festival in the spring and the Marcellus Shale Gas Expo that draws nearly 330 vendors. The park is also home to a little league field and the local high school football field. Recognizing a leader: Without her knowledge, the Troy Fair board nominated Cathy for the Department of Agriculture’s Outstanding Fair Ambassador award. Written in the nomination form was, “Cathy is always striving to make the fair bigger and better and is constantly looking for ways to change what is offered so our patrons don’t get bored with the same entertainment each year.” Bradford County Cooperative Extension Educator Gary Hennip agreed, adding “Cathy really works hard to keep this fair going.” Involving the youth: Dairy and livestock are the largest segments of the fair, and this year youth exhibited 217 head of dairy cattle, 24 steers, 80 hogs, 10 lambs and 12 goats. The annual youth livestock sale had a record year with more than $140,000 in gross sales. Nearly 500 head of dairy cattle were exhibited in total. The junior fair board consists of seven youth members from the county. The group helps with many fair activities including hosting its “Milk Mania

Day” that promotes the county’s active dairy industry, coordinating a talent show and holding a 50/50 raffle drawing each night of the fair, among other projects. “We developed the junior fair board so we can get youth interested so they stay involved as they get older,” said Cathy. “Casey Hall is the perfect example of how the program works because she knew nothing about the fair, but got involved and fell in love with it.” Casey Hall, a local Bradford County youth, joined the junior fair board in 2007. She was named the 2009 Troy Fair Queen and went on to earn the title of the 2010 Pennsylvania Fair Queen at the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs convention. This summer, Casey was named the state FFA president who will lead a team of seven state officers for the next year in promoting agriculture education. “I joined the junior fair board to see what the fair was all about,” said Casey. “I like seeing how the fairs come together, how they are run like a business, and I learned to understand the budget process. I really enjoy working with Cathy in the office to see all the behindthe-scenes work that goes into planning for the fair. “Ciara took over as our junior fair board leader and really got us organized,” Casey added. “We work hard but we get lots of perks like meeting the bands that play during fair week and getting to enjoy the fair.” Casey even recruited her mom, Jamie, into the fair fold. Jamie now works in the fair office and coordinates the county fair queen program. Educating the public: The state fair association chose the statewide fair theme, “From the farm gate to the dinner plate,” to help bridge the gap of understanding about where food comes from. As nearly six million people attend Pennsylvania’s 113 county and community fairs each year, they have the opportunity to learn about our state’s number one industry. The work of those like Cathy Jenkins provides a family-friendly, affordable venue that tells the story of agriculture and encourages Pennsylvanians to know their farmers and their food. Nearly 60 fairs celebrate our heritage during August. A complete listing is available at www.agriculture. state.pa.us by searching “Fairs.”

EPA meet and greet with farmers by Tamara Scully FRANKFORD, NJ — The Sussex County Farm and Horse Show — now also known as the New Jersey State Fair — hosted Environmental Protection Agency Region 2 Administrator, Judith Enck. This “quick get together,” as Enck referred to it, was arranged by Paul Hlubick, Farm Service Agency State Executive Director, and was meant as a casual, proactive venue in which local producers could discuss Federal environmental issues, and their direct impact on local farming. Enck introduced herself, and made references to her familiarity with rural communities and respect for small farmers, and stated her belief that planning is needed to keep agriculture productive, while keeping the “footprint as light as possible.” “Many agricultural operations do have environmental impacts,” Enck said. “We want agriculture to thrive in

New Jersey,” and to keep the “footprint as light as possible. We don’t want to create the problem in the first place.” Enck mentioned that the EPA has partnered with the USDA to improve rural drinking and wastewater systems, and that this program could potentially create jobs while alleviating environmental concerns. Another issue the EPA is emphasizing is that of food waste, taking a three tiered approach, where unused food from large food service providers can be donated to food banks to feed the hungry first, then can be used to feed animals or can be used for composting. Collaboration The attendees at the meeting represented some of the many key players involved in agricultural and environmental issues, including representatives from the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, Farm Service Agency, National Resource Conservation Service,

by Kara Lynn Dunn HENDERSON, NY — At a recent field day program hosted by Dennis and Carol Forrester of Forrester Farms, Henderson, NY, Cornell University Cooperative Extension Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Specialist Keith Waldron and Cornell University Plant Pathologist Gary C. Bergstrom spoke about soybean crop pests and diseases, and farmers had a chance to scout a field with 16 varieties of soybeans. Soybeans were introduced into the U.S. in the late 1800s, Waldron said, “with Rutgers University and the Cornell University Agricultural Experimental Station among the first to conduct research on how to fit the new crop into Northeastern agronomic practices.” “Soybeans have been a boom crop over the last two decades in New York, with a tenfold increase in our acreage,” Waldron said. “Nineteen thousand acres of New York soybeans were harvested in 1980; 279,000 acres were harvested in 2010.” Soybean aphids are able to overwinter in buckthorn, which is prevalent in Jefferson County and throughout New York state. Commercial soybean aphid-resistant varieties became available for use in the U.S. this year. Canadian growers planted their first commercially-available varieties last year. In New York, Cornell University is evaluating and breeding aphid-resistant soybean varieties in research plots in Aurora. The pest that does not have a lot of natural enemies. The soybean aphid can hatch 14 to 18 generations in one growing season. Waldron urged growers to plant early and to be diligent in scouting fields and to intensively monitor fields from R1 first bloom to R5 early pod stages. “Ladybugs, lacewing and syrphid fly larvae are among the beneficial insects that can help reduce soybean aphid populations when the balance of populations is right,” Waldron said. “This year we have seen fewer aphids across the state than was expected. In some areas planting was delayed due to adverse weather. We do not know if this or other factors are a direct cause of the reduction.” He noted that there was also a buildup of beneficial insects that prey on soybean aphids last fall. Waldron said the best advice for growers is to scout fields and, if possible, “let the ladybugs and the soybean aphids’ other natural enemies work — they can do seriously good work in just a week’s time.” He said infestation should be 250 aphids per plant before considering insecticidal treatment. “If your plants reach 250 aphids per plant that is the time to watch fields closely and perhaps get your sprayer lined up for action before populations reach the 660 mark that has been shown to cause economic impact,” Waldron said. The good news for Forrester Farms is that the field day scouts found no problems in the crop that should show strong yield at harvest. Dennis Forrester said he is pleased with this year’s crop. “We planted CruiserMaxx treated seed on May 31st and we have not had any problem with aphids. This field has easy dirt to farm and it has never

disappointed us,” Forrester said. Waldron and Cornell University Plant Pathologist Gary C. Bergstrom spoke about preventing diseases in soybeans. “We know soybean rust exists in North America, having arrived in the southeastern U.S. as spores borne by Hurricane Ivan in the late fall of 2004. Some years rust has survived winters as far north as the Gulf Coast, and parts of Northern Mexico, Florida and southern Texas. It does not survive our harsh northern winters and retreats to areas that maintain green leaf tissue for the winter,” Bergstrom said, “however, there will be a year when we will see rust here in the late season following summer increase of rust on soybeans in the southern states.” Bergstrom said the threat of soybean rust has mobilized the development and registration of chemical treatments labeled for it. Bergstrom said that most of the soybean diseases in Midwestern crops are also in New York, however, while Septoria brown spot is the most prevalent of those diseases, it is not currently causing substantive damage to the New York crops. Soybean cyst nematode (SCN), damaging in its own right and the most important pathogen of soybean in states where it occurs, can aggravate the fungus-induced sudden death syndrome. SCN has not yet been confirmed in New York State; however, vigilance is warranted. Bergstrom said some varieties of soybeans show some tolerance to white mold rot and some fungicides can help, “but are not magic for solving the problem. In the Midwest timely application with a Cobra herbicide has shown some promise in reducing white mold and protecting yield under high disease situations, but it also can reduce the yield of the soybean crop under low disease situations.

EPA meet from A2 process. She also asked that a system be put in place to “help farmers with expedited permit applications,” as the process can be time-consuming and daunting. Southway, a dairy farmer from Fredon Township, mentioned that communication and cooperation among officials at different levels is non-existent, and that the farmer, trying to comply with contradictory regulations, is often stuck in the middle. In Southway’s own experience, the federal government approved his wastewater disposal system for his on-farm creamery, in which whey is incorporated into the manure storage system. County officials, however, consider this an “illegal waste disposal” system. “The farmer gets caught between whichever sponsoring agency and the local municipality, or county enforcement agency,” Southway said. He suggested that decisions approved on the federal or state level need to be communicated to the local level, and that all agencies be conscience of local ordinances which can be contradictory. These concerns, Enck said, should be addressed on a “case by case basis. We also should engage in early conversation with local officials.” Kristine Hall, of NRCS, stated that

field representatives could be a link between the different levels of government. Alerting them to address possible conflicts on the local level would be one way to increase collaboration and ease the burden from the farmer. New Jersey Issues Tom Brodhecker, of Brodhecker Farms in Hampton Township, voiced some concerns about permitting changes related to clean water regulations. The regulations, Brodhecker said, will cause farmers to “lose a lot of good things that have been positive to agriculture.” Restrictions in the use of some commonly used chemicals would severely impact some farms. “We feel we have a very clean, green group of farmers, for the most part, in New Jersey. Other farmers get on their backs” if anyone does something wrong, he said. He pointed out that farming in New Jersey is a lot different from farming on large, rural tracts of land, such as in the Midwestern states, and the same rules might not be applicable in both situations. “Small farms and lots of bodies of water... permitting is a nightmare,” Jim Etsch, NJFB Board of Director for Middlesex County, said. Local and state levels of permits, as well as federal, complicate matters needlessly. Rich Nieuwenhuis, NJFB president, added that New Jersey’s cranberry and

blueberry farmers, whose operations are significantly impacted by wetlands regulations, represent “specific segments of agriculture” which should be given special consideration in the permitting process. “Rural” New Jersey? Another issue raised by Nieuwenhuis, as well as Brodhecker, is the definition of “rural,” and its application to New Jersey. With so many agencies and programs utilizing differing definitions, oftentimes farmers are excluded from applying for program funding because of New Jersey’s demographics. Enck agreed that the dynamic between residential areas and agricultural lands in New Jersey, and the small size and large population density of the state causes its own unique situation. It can make qualifying for grants or programs designated for rural areas difficult, and can also cause difficulty in creating policies which balance the needs of farmers with the concerns of nearby residents. Enck advocated for direct communication between agencies involved in assisting farmers with environmental issues, and sees “tremendous opportunities for collaboration” among parties on the local, state, regional and federal levels, as well as with non-profit organizations and the farmers themselves. “We want to listen to all views and find a policy that makes sense,” she said.

New York hay donation for Texas You may be aware or have been part of the conversation regarding the efforts in Chenango, Broome and other counties to donate hay to Texas ranchers and farmers who are experiencing one of the worst droughts in the history of their state, with agricultural losses estimated at about $5.2 billion thus far. To all involved in the “Hay for Texas” effort, the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM) commends your hard work and generosity. Yesterday (Aug. 22), NYSDAM and Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) officials spoke with Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) officials regarding the potential use of state resources to assist in the delivery of the donated hay. The Texas officials conveyed their great appreciation for the offers of hay they have received from New York as well as other states and private citizens. At this time, however, they have suggested the first option listed below to responsibly manage donated hay from all parts of the country. Should Texas officials decide to take additional steps, they can access the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), of which New York State is an active member. This program provides a rapid way for states to

communicate their needs during times of crisis to all 50 states. It has been used successfully for many disasters and in 2008 New York State sent specially trained personnel to assist Texas after a hurricane ravaged their Gulf coast. Texas officials assure us that they will reach out if they identify that need. We understand, however, that some farmers, whether in Texas or New York, may wish to communicate on this issue. We have two suggested options based on our meeting with TDA officials: • The TDA’s “Hay Hotline” page on its Web site has been revised to manage donated hay. Traditionally, this page was offered to help buyers find sellers (and vice versa). The page has been retooled to handle data regarding hay available for donation and information about available hay transporters. TDA respectfully prefers that all seeking to donate hay coordinate such efforts through the Hay Hotline page as this will allow them to maintain accurate information regarding donations for all stakeholders. This will allow ranchers who would like to receive donated hay coordinate the delivery directly with the donator. Here is a link to that page: www.texasagriculture.gov/agr/program_render/0,1987,1848_5410 _0_0,00.html?channelId=5410

• In the 1980’s, several Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) associates coordinated a hay donation effort via rail to Texas. In that scenario, the rail service (at the time it was Conrail) agreed to donate the transport costs associated with the effort. It may be possible for Extension Associates with contacts at rail or trucking companies to arrange a similar and cost effective agreement for getting hay to Texas or (in the future) other states in need. Lastly, key contacts at CCE and New York Farm Bureau have graciously offered to circulate this message to all

county-level executive and field staff to make sure all receive the same level of communication. In closing, I speak for the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets as well as our partner state agencies when I say “thank you” for your time and energy and, as always, for your support of agriculture in New York. Sincerely, Bill Ketzer, Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets, 10-B Airline Drive, Albany, NY 12235.

Sullivan County [NY] Agricultural Scene Revisited: Hoping Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Schneiderman will help An entire growing season having elapsed since introducing my “Ag is the Answer”™ theme — which, in fact, has been yielding bountifully at Yale, Harvard, Cornell, and other universities nationwide — via a May 9, 2011 “Country Folks” letter to the editor about the sorry state of agriculture in Sullivan County, NY. I regret to report that progress on the livestock slaughterhouse and creamery — both solidly supported by the Open Space Institute [OSI], Columbia University, Catskill Mountainkeeper, Sullivan County Farm Network [SCFN], etc., and cheered by government officials, this spring — has yet to amount to a row of beans. But set the super-sad, Sullivan saga aside for the moment, focusing, instead, on Mount Airy Road, New Windsor, Orange County, NY, where — Eureka! — Continental Organics, an organic vegetable-fish farm, planning to employ 120 people, has been sprouting. Credit for the enterprise — to harvest its first veggies, this fall, just weeks after its formal groundbreaking — having taken off smoothly is due the Orange County Business Accelerator and Industrial Development Agency. Responsible for bolstering small-medium sized, businesses, these quasi-governmental groups began assisting Continental a mere 22 months ago. Back in Sullivan, in sharp contrast, we typically find officials who pole vault, or springboard, onto the pro-ag bandwagon, then, alas, possibly even apply the brakes to — rather than actively promoting development of — the very businesses Governor Cuomo believes will revitalize the sluggish, but can’tstart-a-fire-without-a-spark, State economy. The fact that Continental took root and began blooming in a matter of months, but a stone’s throw from the Sullivan-Orange border, suggests something is haywire in Sullivan. Otherwise stated, if not, for instance, because of ineptitude, ignorance, fraud, corruption, conspiracy, brain dysfunction, deficit of intellect, “lawyeritis,” or a combination thereof, why would a slaughterhouse endeavor, $1.7 million worth of grants ready/waiting, slog along relentlessly, year after year? Moreover, why haven’t university ag en-

gineering experts been serving as consultants since Day One, a private consultant, hired by Sullivan, having “killed” the creamery concept, last summer? Should not “Ready, get set, GO!” be the name of the “agri-b” game in Sullivan County, too? Blind — or blinded — to the reality that truly optimal health trumps gold in the long run, regardless, many with Sullivan — socio-economically depressed, yes, but still uber-rich in wildlife, clean air, pure water, and breathtaking panoramas — ties prefer craps tables or hydrofracking rigs to positive-from-the-get-go “agrib” projects, the pudding-like proof being as dramatic as sparkling clean, blackand-white-Holstein-cows-or-heifers-inthe-State-Fair-Show-Ring, namely, the defunct slaughterhouse and creamery. Likewise having said a mouthful, provided we sift carefully — then stir — pro-fracking factions into the current mix, was a landmark cover story, “Lobbying: NY’s growth industry: Casino, health-care lobbyists are top spenders,” appearing in the “Times Herald [Middletown] Record,” newspaper, Sunday, January 16, 2011. Nest, extrapolating, from Attorney General Schneiderman’s July 29 “Times Herald Record: My View,” pledging to fulfill the obligations and meet the challenges of his esteemed post, the Sullivan ag log-jam is prime — “shovelready” — for our Attorney General and Governor to probe and remediate, the sooner the better. Thus being proactive would certainly — as doctors/nurses caution — do no harm, plus, it might just work wonders, especially given the infinite, food-producing potential of Sullivan County. The former “Egg Basket of N.Y.S.” could become the “Food Basket” or “Horn of Plenty.” Were Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Schneiderman to further transform their words into action — taking on “the big boys/big girls,” pushing those big bucks back into those pockets. Never mind Iowa, because all of the world would be watching — in Sullivan, across the rest of the Hudson Valley, and beyond, thus doing what is morally on-target, meanwhile displaying mettle, utmost integrity, and dropdead courage, they’d simultaneously and indubitably be taking awe-inspiring, emerald-precious steps toward the White House.

Grazing meeting on Sept. 7 We invite you to SS Milkyway (Scott Sawyer and Mark Savage), in Boonville, on Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. for the following grazing meeting. Why and How We Switched to Grazing will be the topic of this grazing meeting co-sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Lewis County and the New

York State Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative. SS Milkyway Farm is located on Thayer Hill Road, in Boonville. All producers and agri-service professionals are invited to attend. There is no registration fee, but please RSVP at 315-376-5270 by Sept. 6 so that we can plan for lunch.


by Jon M. Casey If there was any doubt about what the topic of the day was going to be at the Ag Progress Days 2011 Government and Industry Day Luncheon Aug. 17 in Rock Springs, PA, it only took a moment to realize that the one thing that was on everyone’s mind were the cuts in the 201112 state budget. More importantly, the message that came through loud and clear was how the agricultural community is going to adjust to reduced funding. Since the national economic downturn has affected virtually everyone, the need for a state budget based upon reduced revenues has hit the agricultural community especially hard. Areas that have suffered most at the university level are research and cooperative extension activities, both experiencing reductions in manpower and programs statewide. According to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, his administration’s efforts to produce a budget that was fair and at the same time considerate of the needs of the state’s largest industry, was a challenging task. Just the same, he said that because of his commitment to agriculture, his administration, along with the work of the Pennsylvania Legislature, passed a budget before the deadline, for the first time in many years. “It’s easy to lose track of where we’ve come to,” Corbett said. “It also becomes too easy for government to lose track of everything that (farmers) do that goes into farming. That is why I appointed a Secretary of Agriculture (George Greig) who knows what it is like to be praying for rain or milking a cow early in the morning. “When we first came into office, we only had six weeks to craft a budget,” Corbett said. “It wasn’t an easy budget. You can’t spend more than you have. When you have a $4.2 billion deficit when you walk in the door, you know you have a problem. I want to see our state grow and I can’t think of any better place to start than with agriculture. Agriculture (and the development of) the Marcellus Shale is going to grow jobs and is going to grow

Pennsylvania. I want to see you create jobs. We in government do not create jobs.” Dr. Graham Spanier, Dean of Penn State University, continued the theme of fiscal conservation by saying PSU has worked diligently to help keep the outlook for Ag students “bright.” Citing USDA data suggesting that jobs in the ag sector and in renewable energy will be in demand in greater number than the number of qualified graduates coming from U.S. schools, he commended Bruce McPheron for his efforts as School of Agriculture Dean. Since his appointment two years ago, McPheron has encouraged the faculty to continue with the research agenda despite reduced funding. Just the same, the university has received grants to help offset the reductions in local and state tax collection. These grants are being used to explore areas like food safety, pollinator health, Marcellus Shale activities, stinkbug control and energy research. “Penn State’s Extension has provided homeowners, communities and others, the unbiased educational information regarding gas exploration (in the Marcellus regions),” he said. “Since Penn State began offering gas leasing workshops … 85,000 landowners in Pennsylvania have attended our workshops.” Spanier noted that in the past five years, this translates to an increase in lease values to Pennsylvania landowners of more than $250 million over offers the landowners had received before the workshops were presented. Dr. Bruce McPheron called attention to the strategic planning that Penn State’s Ag Department has been doing to assure students and industry that PSU graduates will meet the nation’s demand for trained workers. He said that Penn State leads the nation in this regard. “Declined productivity is the last thing we need,” he said, referring to the need to feed a world population that continues to grow at an alarming rate.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Reverse sunscreen Early today I telephoned one of my customers who boards replacements, in addition to raising his own heifers. James told me that something happened to one of a customer’s breeding age Holsteins... something that I would have to see to believe. With his initial description of the heifer’s problem, I wasn’t sure she was still alive. He said that part of the animal’s hide on her back was hanging loose, looking like something had tried to gnaw away at her, darn near skinning away that part of her pelt. James thought at first that two or more coyotes had attacked her (coyotes rarely do their dirty deeds alone). James had a veterinarian look at the injured heifer. Her diagnosis was that the animal has suffered photosensitization, most likely caused by ingesting a toxic plant with just the wrong package of chemicals. These are chemicals which become really obnoxious when activated by solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Incidentally, many of these toxic plants can inflict their damage through dermal contact, also. The vet felt that most likely that the guilty plant was Saint John’s Wort, a plant famous in its role as an herbal medicine which combats depression in people. Hypericin is the chemical compound which, in low doses, helps combat

(Contact: renrock46@hotmail.com)

depression in many humans. In higher doses it can be clearly problematic in livestock. When James first told me about the photosensitive heifer, my initial reaction was two-fold. One, I had just written (a couple weeks earlier) about such a problem which involved the weed wild parsnip, whose causative chemical culprit is furocoumarin. So I asked James if that weed might be responsible for the heifer’s misery. He said he wasn’t aware of the wild parsnip’s photosensitive issues, but that he’d seen lots of that weed around, mostly by the roadsides. I would think that with a complex, and expensive, tissue sample analysis, from the hurt heifer, it might be possible to determine whether Saint John’s Wort or wild parsnip (or maybe some other plant) caused her problem. If it is a plant that is guilty, since UV rays are necessary to complete the attack, the poor animal’s condition is correctly referred to as phytophotodermatitis (say that three times quickly). And the second thing that went through mind was that whatever chemical compound had attacked the poor animal, if it were rated as a sunscreen it would have a minus 50 rating. According to A Veterinary Book for Dairy Farmers (by R.W. Blowey), photosensitization is a condition seen in grazing animals caused by an accumula-

Bottom Unloader Replacement Parts & Service

tion of light-reactive pigment in the skin. When the skin is exposed to the sunlight, the pigment absorbs radiant energy, triggering a chemical reaction leading to the release of histamines, which in turn cause excessive skin damage. Photosensitization is usually caused by the animal actually eating the photosensitizing compound. Examples include chemicals contained in Saint John’s Wort and buckweed (not buckwheat). James e-mailed me a picture of the animal suffering from photo-

sensitization. The picture showed a Holstein heifer, approximately 85 percent white, with hide peeled down from her withers about 18 inches; the wound ceased precisely at a big black spot. (Compare this to humans, where those with little or no pigment in their skin sunburn much worse than those with more pigment.) The top layers of skin were gone, very similar to when someone peals the outer layers of bark off a birch tree (which I believe is illegal, at least in New York). Underneath the bottom layer of skin is another layer called the fell, which lies right against the muscles. The fell is a thin tough membrane covering a carcass directly under the hide; what I recall from my meat and

slaughtering course in college is that you don’t want to cut the fell when skinning the carcass. According to the Merck Veterinary Manual such animals should not be exposed to sunlight, thus only allowed to graze at night. The severe stress of phytophotosensitization and extensive skin necrosis can, left untreated, be highly debilitating and increase mortality. Corticosteroids given in the early stages of the ailment may help. Secondary skin infections should be treated with basic wound management techniques, and fly strikes should be prevented. The good news is that the skin lesions can heal remarkably well, even after extensive necrosis. Often such affected animals can return to normal productivity.

After talking to James, I talked to the heifer’s owner. He says that she is doing well, having been treated with wound dressing and therapeutic antibiotic. She is being kept inside (away from UV radiation), unless it’s raining... almost as if she were an albino. Her liver enzyme tests came back within the normal range. She and her pasture mates have been fed, and continue being fed, kelp meal. This dried marine vegetation, with its high levels of natural vitamins and colloidal trace elements, has been shown to help prevent and help cure other dermatological issues like pink eye and ringworm. We’re optimistic that kelp meal will help score a similar win against phytophotodermatitis.

living to 100 years old? As my editor commented, farmers have no clue what moderate exercise is. Our friend V.K. a retired farmer who will be 102 this year, is the exception, considering what he had to survive to accomplish this feat. We asked him in church last Sunday if he was going to do any hunting and trapping this year. He replied that there comes a time when you have to just slow down. When we asked him how he survived his two bull attacks, he said that they weren’t the worst injury. He recalled the time, 25 years ago, when he climbed over an operating PTO shaft and all he remembered when he woke up was he only had on his shirt. He climbed back onto the tractor and drove back to the house, where he instructed his wife to get a coat and lay it on the car’s front seat. She raced to the hospital where he was required to have some reconstructive surgery, but not until he’d lost enormous amounts of blood. He said, with a stern look on his face, “That was the worst one.” This week, some caution flags have been inserted into the mix. The first is that we have been put on alert that as the 9/11/01 anniversary approaches, we should be prepared for more terrorist attacks. It’s sad that this is the legacy that we have to pass on to our offspring. We are reminded of another warning that was ignored 70 years ago and the consequences were catastrophic. On 11/17/1941, the U.S. ambassador to Japan warned President Roosevelt that Japan may attack the U.S. On 11/27/1941, Commanders of the Pacific forces were warned that a Japanese carrier force left Japan

and that an attack may be imminent. Ten days later on 12/6/1941, President Roosevelt appealed to the Japanese emperor to keep peace. And the rest is history. The second warning is that beef and vegetable prices are going to rise significantly this year. It has something to with the weather around the country. I would have to say that this has been one of the most challenging years, weather-wise, for us in the last 50 years. I believe that when reality hits, there will be many disappointed people out there. Even though there may be record acreage planted, the weather has not cooperated. Another thing of interest we’ve heard is that a higher number of Americans are not abusing their credit sources as much as in the past and are keeping their spending closer to their incomes. I commend everyone for their caution and foresight. It means that they will be better able to weather the storms that are sure to come. If everyone, including our elected officials, were to follow this example, our country’s financial problems might have a little more hope of being rectified. On a melancholy note, our first great-grandson left to go back to Colorado to see his daddy, who was up in the Rocky Mountains on a survival training session with the Department of Wildlife Division. Personally, I don’t think his one month visit was long enough. He leaves our arms empty and our hearts full, but I know he is in very good hands. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. (Psalms 119:114) NIV

Nineteen local organizations ask Governor Cuomo and DEC for 180-day comment period & public hearings for fracking guidelines 60 days is not enough! COOPERSTOWN, NY — Otsego 2000, Sustainable Otsego, and 17 other Otsego county organizations concerned about the environmental impacts of dirty gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” called on Governor Cuomo and Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens on Aug. 15 to hold no less than a 180day comment period and statewide public hearings on the state’s proposed fracking guidelines, formally known as the revised Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Statement (SGEIS). Elected officials, organizations and citizens from Albany, Ithaca, New York City, Rochester, and Syracuse echoed these concerns. Adrian Kuzminski, moderator of Sustainable

Otsego, said, “New Yorkers in the Otsego region deserve more than a mere 180 days to review a thousand-page document that could determine the future health and safety of this county. An extended comment period is vital to introduce and assess new evidence that high-volume hydraulic fracturing may be too risky and costly to be justified as public policy.” Otsego 2000 and Sustainable Otsego released a letter to the Governor and Commissioner Martens calling for the 180-day comment period along with public hearings in at least the same four areas where the DEC held hearings on the 2009 draft fracking document, Binghamton, Sullivan County, New York City and Delaware County. They also called on state leaders to hold hearings in as many of

the communities likely to be affected by fracking, including Otsego County, Western New York and the Hudson Valley. Many New Yorkers in these areas did not have the opportunity to attend a public hearing in 2009. Ellen Pope, executive director of Otsego 2000, stated that “if Governor Cuomo plans to allow fracking to proceed in New York, Otsego residents whose daily lives will be impacted by increased industrial activity, increased truck traffic, and spills or accidents need the time to fully understand and weigh in on the state’s proposed plan,” The DEC’s preliminary

revised draft fracking assessment with proposed guidelines was released in July. The complete revised draft is expected to be released for public comment and review in late summer or early fall. To frack a gas well, millions of gallons of water, sand, and toxic chemicals are pumped deep underground at high pressure. This fractures the rock that has trapped the gas for millennia and allows it to escape. From start to finish, gas development that relies on fracking is an industrial process that threatens our water. State after state, from Wyoming to Pennsylvania, has documented its dangers. New York can’t afford to put

short-term gas profits ahead of the long-term health of our water and our communities. In addition to Otsego 2000, Sustainable Otsego, Brewery Ommegang, and the First Presbyterian Church of Cooperstown, the local neighborhood advocacy groups signing on to the letter include Advocates for Cherry Valley, Advocates for Morris, Advocates for Springfield, Butternut Valley Alliance, Crumhorn Lake Association, Crumhorn Rod and Gun Club, Friends of Butternuts, Middlefield Neighbors, Milford DOERs, Otsego 2000, Inc., Otsego Neighbors, Residents of

by John Hart Throughout history, a spirit of innovation has characterized the United States of America. From the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the space race to the computer age, Americans have always been innovators. And innovation has always found a home on the American farm. Take a look at a modern combine or tractor, and you will see American in-

novation at its best. But innovation on the farm doesn’t end there. It can be found in the seeds farmers plant and in the products they use to protect their crops and nurture their livestock. However, the hallmark of American innovation may well be found in agricultural biotechnology. Thanks to the wonder of biotechnology, more farmers now plant insect-resistant seeds that require far fewer

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE American Farm Bureau Federation chemical inputs than conventional varieties. Because of the use of biotech seeds, farmers can increase productivity per acre and reduce the need for pesticides. In addition, the adoption of biotechnology has encouraged the use of no-till cultivation, which reduces both herbicide use and greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, biotechnology ensures a more affordable and reliable supply of food and fiber for consumers. The evidence is clear that biotech crops currently on the market are safe to eat and pose no environmental harm. In testimony in June before a House Agriculture subcommittee reviewing the opportunities and benefits of agricultural biotechnology, Dr. Roger Beachy, president emeritus of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, MO, drove home the point that biotech crops are safe. “Since regulations were first put in place for the products of agricultural biotechnology in 1987, more than 2 billion acres of crops have been grown and harvested in a least 29 countries around the world,” Dr. Beachy testified. “These crops have been grown by 15.4 million farmers, 14.4 million of who are small, resource poor farmers in developing countries. The harvests of these crops have been consumed in billions upon billions of meals by humans and livestock around the world for the better part of two decades now. In all this vast experience, we have not a single consequence of a novel, nega-

tive consequence for health or the environment — not one.” Many scientific bodies attest to the safety of biotech crops. Studies by The National Research Council confirm that there has not been a single instance of harm to human health or the environment due to the use of biotech seeds. In Europe, the Joint Research Centre has concluded that biotech products currently on the market in the European Union are safe. Based on the evidence to date, the benefits of commercialized biotech crops far outweigh the risks. After a thorough and rigorous safety and environmental review, U.S. regulatory agencies have proven that biotech sugar beets and alfalfa are safe for commercialization, yet the use of these valuable products has been challenged in court. The potential for feeding a hungry world through biotechnology is nearly limitless. Agricultural biotechnology is safe, sustainable and serves consumers by ensuring an abundant food supply. It is time to invigorate America’s innovative spirit by renewing our commitment to agricultural biotechnology, removing the regulatory hurdles that stand in the way and continuing to make consumers aware that biotech crops are not only safe but desperately needed. John Hart is director of news services for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Grain Marketing Training Sessions scheduled New York State Agriculture Commissioner Darrel J. Aubertine announced on Aug. 19 that seven training sessions have been scheduled to help grain producers learn more about post-harvest marketing of their crop. Winning the Game one-day workshops will focus on post-harvest planning and pricing, using real-life examples to illustrate the pros and cons of different pricing and marketing approaches. Post-harvest pricing tools include three choices: sell grain at harvest, hold grain in storage to sell later, or hold grain in storage and “sell the carry.” How do you decide? Participants will get an update of the current market situation, within the context of long-term market and price trends. Participants will learn how to compare options and will test and improve their marketing skills with a fast-paced simulation exercise. John Berry, Pennsylvania’s grain marketing Cooperative Extension agent, will lead the sessions. Registration is required. A fee of $20$30 (depending on the location) secures a place at the workshop and includes refreshments and lunch. Four daytime sessions are scheduled: • Aug. 31, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Richfield Springs (Otsego County). Tally Ho Restaurant, Richfield Springs, NY.

Each intern also completes a major project, many of which fulfill business plan initiatives. These projects contribute valuable information to be used in reports and future planning.

Snyder is the pioneer of rotationally-molded polyethylene ag tanks. For more than fifteen years, farmers and ag chemical dealers have been choosing Snyder for their liquid handling systems. We’ve designed, molded and sold more tanks for agricultural use than any other polyethylene tank manufacturer in North America.

Snyder rotationally molds tanks from ultra-high quality cross-linked polyolefin or tough, linear polyethylene resins for a stronger, longer lasting tank. When you’re seriously looking into ag tanks, you’ll see the obvious weight and maintenance advantages of polyethylene and the advantages of Snyder’s rotational molding process.

Fall Online Courses for Beginning Farmers open for registration The growing season is still in full swing, but here at the Northeast Beginning Farmer Project, we’re already thinking about “education season”. This Fall we’ll be offering seven online courses — including four new topics — to help you continue your farming education. As always, our courses are taught by experienced Cooperative Extension educators, farmers, and other specialists. Courses are typically six weeks long, cost $175, and include both real-time meetings (online webinars) and on-your-own time reading and activities. We do not offer any academic credit, but those who successfully complete a course will receive a certificate and are also eligible for Farm Service Agency (FSA) borrower training credit, which can improve eligibility to receive a low-interest FSA loan. We’ve got several courses that will help you build the “invisible infrastructure” of your farm business: • Our introductory-level course for those still in the exploring and early planning stages, BF 101: Square One, is back, to help you get clear about your goals, skills, and available resources. • If you’re well beyond that stage and ready to write a full business plan, sign up for the BF 202: Planning to Stay in Business course, which will help you prepare to seek funding from banks and other lenders • Need some guidance setting up financial recordkeeping systems? Then BF 104: Financial Records is for you. On the production

side, we offer: • BF 120: Veggie Farming — back by popular demand, this jampacked course has now been divided into two parts (with BF 121 being offered in January). BF 120 covers the planning, budgeting, site selection, and planting, while BF 121 will pick up where BF 120 leaves off and take you through considerations in season-long care, harvest, and marketing. • Raising poultry is a popular enterprise for many small farmers, so this Fall we’re introducing a new course, BF 130: Poultry Production, to cover the basic requirements of producing and profiting from chickens, ducks, and turkeys. • Before you sink a lot of money into equipment, consider taking BF 105: Machinery and Equipment, another new course designed to help you weigh your options and make smart decisions about what’s best for your farm scale and situation. • BF 110: Soil Health returns again this Fall to introduce growers at all levels of experience to practical on-farm applications of soil health concepts. This course will again incorporate an optional in-person field day at an amazing farm in Northern NY that will demonstrate improvement of soil health on a working farm. To learn more about each course, please visit http://nebeginningfarmers.org/onlinecourses. From this site you can see our full calendar of courses, learn more about our instructors, see answers to Frequently Asked Questions, read details for

each course, and even visit a sample online course. Courses often fill very quickly, so don’t miss your chance to sign up today! Development of new online courses has been partially funded by the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program, project #2009-4940005878. Course coordination is provided by the Cornell Small Farms Program, www.smallfarms.cornell.edu.

A Milestone for Stoll In early August, Stoll celebrated 10 years of sales activities in North America. To mark the occasion, Stoll North America invited selected dealers to join the celebration at its North American Headquarters in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. Thomas Neal, Managing Director of the North America Group, along with his management team welcomed the group on Aug 5 and 6. “It was a perfect time to join together with our dealer partners, to show off our newly completed loader line up,” said Mr. Neal. The Management team from Germany was also on hand to support the event. The Group introduced the ProfiLine, EcoLine and Compact Line. Marking the completion of the line-up. ProfiLine At Agritechnica in November 2007 in Hanover, Germany, STOLL introduced the first FZ models to a huge public. These were the largest loaders in the range, designed for tractors of up to 300 HP.

Stoll has been building on the line-up since. September 2011 marks the completion of the line with the introduction of the FZ8. The FZ “ProfiLine” is suitable for tractors from 60-300HP. CompactLine Also introduced by STOLL was the new FC “CompactLine” for Compact tractors”. The three sizes in the FC range fits tractors from 15 to 50 HP. Behind the new launch is recognition of substantial development and future sales possibilities in this market segment. Promise is also seen in opportunities through expanding cooperation with OEM partners (Original Equipment Manufacturer) as well as a higher market penetration especially in the USA where alone over 60,000 compact tractors are sold annually. “We feel that we have the strongest line-up in the industry. Stoll has invested heavily in product development and we have increased production dramatically,” said Neal, “We are in a great position to move forward to the next Milestone.”

Stoll shows its newly completed loader line-up to dealers.

Time for a break! As a visitor attempts to get a closer look inside the cab of this New Holland combine, an unidentified spectator watches from a distance. As the day begins to wind down, this trio heads through the T.A. Seeds demonstration plot on their way to the next exhibit.

Spectators took time to get a closer look at how the equipment performed following one of the hay mowing demonstrations.

Networking, country-style — a group of folks gather amidst New Holland’s equipment display to discuss the new equipment on display.

Decked out and ready to go, the six-horse hitch of David and Linda Hershey’s Spring Mount Percherons heads out for a trip around the show.

This Takeuchi TL 230 Series 2 track loader attracts a lot of attention among this group of shoppers.

Baling demonstrations were the order of the day on Wednesday afternoon. Here, a CLAAS Variant 360 pops out a round bale of freshly raked alfalfa.

Cash cheese prices crashed the third week of August as they anticipated July milk production data but did the market overreact? The block cheese price closed that Friday at $1.90 per pound, down 12 1/2cents on the week, but still 25 1/4 cents above a year ago. Barrel closed at $1.8625, down 21 3/4cents on the week, and 24 3/4-cents above a year ago. Six cars of block traded hands on the week and 13 of barrel. The lagging NASSsurveyed U.S. average block price jumped 3.6 cents, to $2.1476, while the barrels inched up 0.6 cent, to $2.1611. It was the third week in a row of declines in the blocks which totaled 25 1/2-cents. Class III futures slipped as well with the September contract taking the brunt of the losses. Prices for the last six months of 2011 were averaging $19.25 per hundredweight as of late Friday morning, down from the previous week’s $19.42. The impact of $2 plus cheese is beginning at the retail level, reports Jerry Dryer’s Dairy and

Food Market Analyst, and orders from international buyers have slowed dramatically. But he adds that several Upper Midwest manufacturers have told him they are unable to fill all of their orders. “The domestic foodservice business seems to be doing well as supported by same-store sales data,” Dryer wrote, and “These cheese companies are also faced with a reduction in their milk supply; a situation that is prevalent throughout the Eastern two-thirds of the country. He cited the extreme heat of several weeks ago as the reason why and admits that a good recovery is underway but the milk supply is still 5-8 percent below a year ago. He concedes that further erosion in cheese prices near term but remains convinced that “prices will spend a lot more time over two bucks than under two bucks between now and at least the end of this year.” Heat and humidity in July took a toll on milk production in the Midwest and Northeast, according to the Agricul-

ture Department’s latest preliminary data, but Western output was up. July output in the 23 major states totaled 15.45 billion pounds, up just 0.8 percent from July 2010. Production in the 50 states, at 16.55 billion pounds, was up 0.7 percent. Revisions subtracted 5 million pounds from the June total, now put at 15.4 billion pounds, up 1.3 percent from a year ago. July cow numbers in the 23 states were estimated at 8.47 million head, up 8,000 from June, and 93,000 more than a year ago. Produc-

tion per cow averaged 1,824 pounds, down 5 from a year ago. California production was up 4.4 percent from a year ago, thanks to 22,000 more cows and a 60 pound gain per cow. Contrast that to Wisconsin which was down 3.5 percent on a 65 pound loss per cow. Cow numbers were up 1,000 head. New York was off 0.2 percent on a loss of 1,000 cows but output per cow was unchanged. Idaho was up 4.8 percent, on 13,000 more cows and 50 pounds more per cow. Pennsylvania was down 3.2 per-

cent on 1,000 fewer cows and a drop of 50 pounds each. Minnesota was down 6.6 percent, on a 115 pound drop per cow. Cow numbers were up 1,000 head. The biggest gain was in Texas, up 8.3 percent. Cow numbers were up 20,000 head and output per cow was up 60 pounds. Florida was up 8 percent and Washington was up 6.6 percent. The biggest decline was in Missouri, down 8.4 percent, on a loss of 50 pounds per cow and 4,000 fewer cows. Iowa was next, down 7.1 percent, fol-

lowed by Minnesota. Increased prices on fluid milk won’t help demand. The September Federal order Class I base price is $21.78 per hundredweight, up 35 cents from August, $6.28 above September 2010, the highest since September 2007, and equates to about $1.87 per gallon. The 2011 average now stands at $19.23, up from $14.83 a year ago and $10.95 in 2009. The NASS-surveyed butter price averaged $2.0852 per pound, up 5.6 cents from August. Nonfat dry milk averaged

Dairyline A19


$1.5804, down 7.7 cents. Cheese averaged $2.1529, up 2.2 cents, and dry whey averaged 56.39 cents, up 1.7 cents. The jury is still out on what’s ahead in cash butter which closed August 19 at $2.0875, up 1 1/2-cents on the week and 4 3/4-cents above a year ago when it jumped 12 1/4-cents to $2.04, eventually reaching $2.2350. Weather was a big factor last year as well. Five cars were sold on the week. NASS but-

ter averaged $2.0941, up 1.3 cents. NASS nonfat dry milk averaged $1.5889, up 1.6 cents, and dry whey averaged 56.48 cents, up 0.2 cent. Buyers appear to be waiting for the butter price to fall more before the heavy end of year holiday sales season arrives, according to USDA. eDairy broker, Dave Kurzawski, warned in Tuesday’s DairyLine that butter could fall below $2 within a couple of weeks.

He said the cash market looks at the futures market because it “tends to foreshadow sentiment going forward.” He adds that with all markets, from the Dow to milk and corn, “August is typically a very quiet month and we start to see more activity step in these markets as we roll past Labor Day.” “That hasn’t been the case this year,” he concluded, “August has been extremely busy, extremely volatile, and we’re just trying to find the best possible price we can and, as weather cools off here in the Midwest particularly, we have this kind of bearish bias on these dairy prices going forward, not to mention the weakness in international prices that we’ve seen over the past few weeks.” Speaking of the international market; the CME’s Daily Dairy Report warned that prices continued to weaken in Tuesday’s Global Dairy Trade (Fonterra) auction. The Milk Producers Council reported in their August 12 newsletter that increased export volume in the first half of the year along with increases in the percentage of production exported, were recorded for five of seven major U.S. dairy products. The exceptions were dry whey and whey protein concentrates, with lower volumes and lower percentages of production. The U.S. Dairy Export Council estimates total dairy product exports in June represented 13.6 percent of U.S. milk solids production, and 13.1 percent of year to date production. The increases in volume from last year range from 26 percent for nonfat dry milk to 70 percent for cheddar cheese. MPC tipped its hat to the Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) program for its “persistent support given to

their members in that most important of milk price setting dairy products.” Other percentage increases are 42 percent for cheeses other than cheddar and 59 percent each for skim milk powder and butter. The largest volume category continues to be nonfat powders, which total 481 million pounds so far this year. The second largest category was whey protein products which total 379 million pounds. Cheese was the third largest, with 263 million pounds. Butter exports totaled 75 million pounds, 8 percent of the amount produced, “a significant percentage of total demand.” Historically, exports have been used as market clearing sales, the lowest of the low, but that appears to be changing, according to the MPC. The estimated average prices received for exports this June was 50 cents per pound for dry whey, $1.63 per pound for the nonfat powders, $2.18 for butter, and $1.86 for cheddar cheese and the MPC said “It’s gratifying to note those prices were in reasonable relationship to the prices reported by manufacturers for the month.” U.S. exports continue to be supported by the weak U.S. dollar and rising global demand, but MPC warned that “recent international unrest and economic uncertainty appears to be affecting both, not for the better.” Speaking of exports; the CWT program accepted six requests this week for export assistance from Darigold and Dairy Farmers of America to sell a total of 2.9 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered through De-

Mielke from A19 cember and raises total CWT cheese exports to 60.5 million pounds to 20 countries and is the equivalent of 605 million pounds of milk, the annual production of 28,000 cows. The Agriculture Department’s latest Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook predicts milk production will continue to rise this year and next and fats basis exports will rise in 2011from last year but soften slightly in 2012. Skims-solids export will show slight increases both this year and next. Higher milk production and slower growth in exports will pressure prices in 2012, warns USDA. Corn prices continue their upward trajectory, according to the Outlook, with August forecasts for 2011/12 raised from July to $6.20-$7.20 per bushel. Soybean meal prices were raised as well, to $355-$385 per ton. Alfalfa prices are expected to remain high into 2012. The most recent Cattle report estimated that producers were retaining 4 percent more replacement heifers than last year. The retention, combined with a 1 percent higher dairy cow inventory on July 1, led to an increase in the dairy herd forecast for 2011 and 2012. The U.S. dairy cow herd was forecast at 9.195 million head in 2011 and 9.190 million in 2012. Milk per cow is

forecast to increase fractionally in 2011 to 21,275 pounds as higher feed prices and hot weather take a toll on output. Output per cow in 2012 is forecast to increase to 21,630. Milk supplies remain tight in most Eastern and Central states as well as Arizona, according to USDA, though volumes partially rebounded from recent heat stressed levels. Fluid interest is steady to occasionally heavier where additional schools are reopening. Manufacturing schedules are slightly heavier as a result. Weather remains generally conducive for milk production in California, Idaho, Utah, and the Pacific Northwest and, with added cows in some locations, receipts remain seasonally strong and often at above year ago levels. I reported last week that cold and snow visited New Zealand. Reports indicate that some dairies had to dump milk but the volume was likely small. eDairy economist Bill Brooks says the snowfall probably won’t cause dairy production problems unless cold, wet weather extends into calving and pasture season. In politics; Rep. Collin Peterson (DMN) says he will introduce his dairy reform proposal after the August recess. The legislation mirrors key elements of

National Milk’s “Foundation for the Future” package. Speaking in a DairyLine interview this week, Peterson said he’s in the process of gathering additional sponsors and wants to keep it bipartisan but that has slowed the process because he wants an even number of Democrats and Republicans on board and have representatives from all parts of the country. He praised National Milk for its work on the plan but warned that there’s a lot of work ahead and that producers are not 100 percent united, which he admitted they never will be, however he hopes to get as much of a consensus as possible. He said he knows processors and perhaps others will be opposed to the measure so it’s important for producers to be united as much as possible. Senate colleagues may soon be on board as well, according to Peterson. He has met with Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Patrick Leahy (DVT) who initially were skeptical of moving so early in the Farm bill process but, after explaining what he is attempting to do, have since said, “Get this moving in the House and if you can get some movement on this, this fall, we will then move in the Senate.” He added that the budget issue is also complicating and slowing the progresTRACTORS 1994 Ford 1920 4WD, ROPS w/ Ford 7108 Loader, 12x12 Shuttle Trans., 2,410 Hrs . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $11,250 2004 NH TL90 4WD, ROPS, Excellent Cond, 1976 Hrs. . . . . . . $25,900 1997 NH 8770 4WD, Supersteer, Mega Flow Hydraulics, Rear Duals, 7164 Hrs... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $53,750 1998 NH 8560 4WD, Cab, 130 HP, - 3500 Hrs, Well Maintained. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $44,950 2009 JD 3032E 4WD, ROPS w/ JD 305 Loader, HST -283 Hrs., Exc.

sion and putting the Farm Bill process in question but he fears that the fundamentals in the 2008 dairy market prior to the collapse in 2009 are currently being seen and, “while prices are relatively good now, we could have another down turn and the existing system just does not provide the safety net that we need if we have another collapse in prices like we had in 2009.” He also admitted that some dairy farmers in his own district are questioning the plan. “The folks that are questioning it are the people who were actually in favor of supply management 10 years ago,” Peterson said, “And the people that were against it in California are now in favor of it, so it’s flipped around.” “Part of the reason,” he explained, “Is that when feed prices were cheap and we were subsidizing corn to keep feed prices cheap, California and the western producers that have to buy feed actually had an advantage over the Midwest.” “Now, if the feed price is high and the Midwest is growing a lot of their feed, they feel like they have the advantage. So, to some extent, this is kind of a battle between different regions in terms of trying to maintain or

4-H Milk Bar is a cool stop at the fair by Linda Tripp, 4-H Youth Development Issue Leader When you find yourself thirsty and hungry during your visit to the Columbia County Fair on Aug. 31-Sept. 5, the 4-H Milk Bar is the place to be for some refreshing snacks. Brownie sundaes, prepared with chocolate brownie chunks, vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup join other sundaes offered — strawberry, chocolate and hot fudge. Besides sundaes, also offered are the famous 4-H shakes, made from ice cream, milk and flavoring. If you want a lighter fare, choose a cone: strawberry, chocolate or vanilla. A daily special ice cream variety is offered each day. Beverages are also served — bottled

water and milk. Our old fashioned root beer float will be brought back by popular demand. The 4-H Milk Bar is located near the Rt. 203 entrance to the fairgrounds, right across from Columbia Hall. It is run by adult and teen volunteers. It is the first opportunity some 4-H members have to experience a work environment where they interact with the public. The funds raised from this enterprise are used to support a variety of youth programs including career awareness and citizenship trips, volunteer chaperones, and awards and recognition. To find out more about our programs contact us at 518-828-3346 or Columbia@cornell.edu.

The ABC’s of after school nutrition (Family Features) — During the busy school year, it can be a challenge to maintain sound nutrition and quality together time for the entire family. By planning ahead and making resolutions about smart snack and meal choices, it’s easier to have everyone reconnect, recharge and relax. Often times a more casual evening provides the best opportunity to reconnect. Here are some tips for making the most of those treasured afterschool hours. • Families that eat together, grow together. Regular family dinners have long been touted as an important component of a well-rounded childhood. Include everyone during dinner prep by having them set the table or prepare a side salad. • Think outside the bag. Take lunchtime as an opportunity to teach your children about nutrition and help them pack their lunches the night before. Reinforce good eating habits by encouraging them to create a well-balanced meal that they’ll enjoy. Think of combining proteins, fruit, and whole grains to keep them energized. A trail mix snack made with Nestlé Raisinets provides real fruit antioxidants and 30% less fat than the leading chocolate brands. Or for a special treat, try this Whole-Wheat Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownies recipe made with Nestlé Toll House Dark Chocolate

Morsels. It has the chocolate taste kids love, and the addition of grated zucchini and whole-wheat flour make it mom-approved. • Make every sip count. What your kids are drinking daily has a big impact on overall nutrition. Made from 100% fruit juice with no added sugar, Nestlé Juicy Juice 100% Juice is a delicious, easy way for you to ensure your kids get at least one of their daily recommended servings of fruits. Pack their favorite flavor in their lunchbox and check out www.juicyjuice.com for product information, tips and recipes.

Farm & Agriculture Night Marilyn Lamb the Rensselaer County Dairy Princess recently attended the Farm & Agriculture Night at the Tri-Cities Valley Cats Game to promote ReFuel with Chocolate Milk. Marilyn was escorted to the pitcher’s mound by Dean Casey, president of the Rensselaer County Farm Bureau where she had the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, which was a strike! She also rode around the field and tossed out Got Milk T-shirts to the Valley Cat fans. Marilyn and her court would like to remind everyone to get their 3 Servings of Dairy Everyday! The Rensselaer County Dairy Princess program is made possible through the support of the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council and the local planning and management organization funded by dairy farmer checkoff dollars.

School bus safety For 23 million students nationwide, the school day begins and ends with a trip on a school bus. The greatest risk is not riding the bus, but approaching or leaving the bus. Before children go back to school or start school for the first time, it is essential that adults and children know traffic safety rules. Drivers • When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch out for children walking or bicycling to school. • When driving in neighborhoods with school zones, watch out for young people who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking of getting there safely. • Slow down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in neighborhood. • Slow down. Watch for children playing and congregating near bus stops. • Be alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic. • Learn and obey the school bus laws in your state. Learn the “flashing signal light system” that school bus drivers use to alert motorists of pending actions: • Yellow flashing lights indicate that the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles. • Red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate that the bus has stopped, and that children are getting

on or off. Motorists must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop sign is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again. Children • Get to the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. • When the bus approaches, stand at least three giant steps (6 feet) away from the curb, and line up away from the street. • Wait until the bus stops, the door opens, and the driver says that it’s okay before stepping onto the bus. • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the sidewalk or along the side of the road to a point at least five giant steps (10 feet) ahead of the bus before you cross. Be sure that the bus driver can see you, and you can see the bus driver. • Use the handrails to avoids falls. When exiting the bus, be careful that clothing with drawstrings, and book bags with straps don’t get caught in the handrails or doors. • Never walk behind the bus. • Walk at least three giant steps away from the side of the bus. • If you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up because the driver may not be able to see you. Parents • Teach children to follow these common sense practices to make school bus transportation safer.

HORSE TALES By Judy Van Put Historic blacksmith shop restored Recently I visited our friends, Steve and Audrey Forrer, at their weekend home in Lew Beach, NY. Steve had extended an invitation to come up and see the historic blacksmith shop he had restored, and he related the story of how he first became familiar with the shop and the forge, and how, many years later, became the proud owner of it. Back in the late 1950s -early 1960s, Steve’s parents had a farm in Stamford, NY, and during the summers the youngster worked for Charlie Merwin, who had an apiary in nearby

Prattsville, NY. Steve would help him with the bee yard… and attached to the honey house where they kept their equipment was a stone building — a blacksmith shop. He recalled that it was “as if someone had just turned the key and left it.” At that time, the bellows were still there, the hearth was still standing, and the Merwins had fond memories of the place. No longer in service, they used it for storage. Time passed, and over the years, Steve got married, and he and Audrey had three children. The family lived in Maryland, but they would visit the old Mer-

win farm from time to time, bringing their children to see Charlie, who lived to be just about 100 years of age when he died, in the 1970s. One day Steve decided to take Audrey up to Prattsville to see the honey farm. They found that the old blacksmith shop was still standing — although all that was left were the stone walls. Steve contacted the man who owned the property where the shop was located, and asked what he had planned to do with the stone. The man replied that his plan was to sell the stone for building stone walls. Feeling strongly that the structure needed to be preserved, as it had a

long history, Steve offered to buy it — and after some negotiation, the deal was done! He hired a couple of youngsters from Margaretville, and the group spent the next two weeks dissembling the stone from the walls, and moving it onto pallets and moved them to the top of his hill in Lew Beach, some 50 miles away. Steve painstakingly numbered all the stones and took “thousands of pictures” in order to be able to rebuild the hearth exactly as it was. As he became more involved with the project, he began to do research on the shop. He found

Hay & Pasture Crop Insurance for 2012 Enrollment deadline: September 30, 2011 Known also as Pasture, Rangeland, Forage Rainfall Index (PRF-RI), the program insures against lack of precipitation. For hay and hay crop silage of established perennial forages, PRF offers up to $306 of protection. For pasture, the policy can provide up to $60 of protection per acre.

Key features • Policy covers a single peril, lack of rainfall. • Producers select acreage and months for customized coverage. • Policy is available in all NY counties. • No historical production records are required. • USDA/RMA subsidizes 50 to 59% of premium costs. • Indemnity payment, if due, is mailed automatically. • Premium payment is due July 1, 2012. • Program also applies to apiculture producers.

How it works Step 1:

With the help of a crop insurance agent, locate your farm on a PRF map available at www.rma.usda.gov/policies/pasturerangeforage divided into 12 square mile grids. The program uses historic rainfall data to determine normal rainfall for each grid.

Step 2:

Select at least two non-overlapping two-month periods most important for grazing or hay production to insure against below-average rainfall in the grid area. You can insure between 10% and 70% of your acreage in any one 2-month period.

Step 3:

Decide the crop value you want to insure. Your selection of value can be between 60% and 150% of the county base value per acre. For hay, the base value is about $226 per acre. Pasture base values vary by county in New York, from $15 to $44 per acre. You can decide whether to insure your land as hay or pasture if the land can be either. Apiculture value is approximately $87 per colony.

To learn more and to enroll by the September 30 sales closing deadline, contact an approved crop insurance agent.

Trucks

International Electronic Machines of Troy receives $250,000 The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded $250,000 to International Electronic Machines (IEM) Corp. of Troy for the firm to continue developing equipment that inspects truck wheels and tires using infrared technology. The technology, which has the potential to save fuel and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while limiting inspection wait time, would be used to inspect truck tires, brakes and bearings at highway speeds. If successful, the technology could be used to signal trucks with mechanical issues to pull over at inspection sites, while trucks with no problems would be allowed to keep driving. The Smart Infrared Inspection System (SIRIS) looks for abnormal temperature variations, which indicate wear and possible damage. Early discovery of these problems prevents more significant damage — and possibly safety risks — down the road. SIRIS was initially developed under a $1.4 million grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. NYSERDA contributed $250,000 in an earlier incentive, leveraging an additional $610,000 in private funding. The second round of funding, announced on July 28, came about after IEM’s tests demonstrated the feasibility of the high speed solution. The technology’s early application was to look at trucks driving slowly through inspection sites, but this new generation will be used on trucks driving at highway speeds. “Heavy-duty vehicles account for only four percent of the vehicles on the road, but consume 20 percent of the fuel,” said Francis J. Murray Jr., President and CEO of NYSERDA. “NYSERDA is partnering on dozens of projects that will help make the freight industry more energy efficient.

This is yet another piece of the solution.” Zack Mian, President and CEO of International Electronic Machines, said, “NYSERDA has provided strategic funding to IEM for many years, enabling us to develop technologies that benefit energy savings, the environment, and the economy.” New York State conducts more than 100,000 truck and other commercial motor vehicle safety inspections each year. Many more

than that number of commercial vehicles is pulled over to wait in an inspection queue, only to be waved through later. This results in as much as a half gallon of wasted fuel per truck and adds greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. According to IEM, use of SIRIS could prevent the release of nearly 1,800 tons of carbon dioxide, 86,000 pounds of nitrogen oxides and similar amounts of the other contaminants each year in New York

The Tire Shop

State alone. If adopted for use on a nationwide basis, High Speed SIRIS would reduce emissions of CO2 by more than 50,000 tons.

USDA SIRE SUMMARY


Section A - Page 30 August 29, 2011 • Let Them Know You Read COUNTRY FOLKS •

Tales from A24 that the original owners of the blacksmith shop had a long genealogy, and the shop itself had a “big history” — documentation was found that the shop was established by a Merwin who came over on the Mayflower! The first Merwin to come to the area migrated over from Connecticut and was the town’s pioneer blacksmith. In 1790, he moved to Grand Gorge. At the time, members of the original Hardenburgh family (of the Hardenburgh Patent) established a mill, and around the mill grew a settlement. Stephen Merwin established his blacksmith shop there to support the mill and the settlement. It was active in the 1800s, and today parts of the old stone buildings and other structures of the settlement can still be seen. Through the years, there was a whole succession of Merwins who were blacksmiths. In 1831 the building (and shop) burned down. At that time there were two Merwin sons; one was left handed and one was right handed — and both wanted to become blacksmiths. And so a forge was built to accommodate both sons, David S. and Joel, at the same time. This forge was the first two-man forge (one for a left-handed and one for a right-handed blacksmith) ever built in the United States. It was unique in that the brothers could work together with their two forges simultaneously. Steve and Audrey did some research at the Historical Society in Cooperstown, and learned that they had in their collection original hand-written journals of the family dating back from 1808.

When the Merwin family died out and everything was sold, someone bought the journals and gave them to the Historical Society. The Forrers were allowed to take photo copies — finding interesting snippets of information along the way. They documented the earliest journal back to 1808 which revealed that at the time, the Roxbury area was heavily settled by people from Connecticut, who would return to that state in the winter because the winters in upstate New York were so severe. Thanks to the research uncovered by Steve’s quest, information on the shop is preserved on a historical marker that Steve has hanging proudly on display next to the old two-man forge. Steve and Audrey decided they wanted an old barn to complement the forge and blacksmith shop (although typically a blacksmith shop wouldn’t be associated with a barn because of the fire hazard) and embarked on the hunt to find just the right barn that might be available for sale that would suit their needs. He found a beauty — the Livingston Barn built around 18101820 in Central Bridge, NY. An old winnowing tray and thresher, similar to that used by the Livingston family, hangs on the barn wall, along with other period pieces of antiquity. Steve relates that the whole project has taken about four years to complete, with a bit of a hiatus, and was a major project, involving a lot of research and painstaking work. He’s carefully stocked the shop with all original blacksmith equipment and bellows from that time period, and he’s even got a col-

Mielke from A20 increase their share of the dairy market. I don’t think people should look at it that way. I think they have to look at the big picture.” He added the caveat that supply management is not written in stone, admitting that he too has questions how it is structured, and warned that supply management may not survive in the committee. It’s a “small part of things,” he concluded. “The way it’s set up, it’s kind of a blink on and off. So I don’t think it’s going to be that huge of a factor in the whole

lection of historic anvils. Today it works as an early 1800s forge. Steve uses it to make tools other items, and enjoys showing the shop and forge to others. He confesses to have thoroughly enjoyed the

project from start to finish. And on days when he is at his weekend place in Lew Beach, he enjoys spending much of his free time in the old barn and Blacksmith Shop, which are filled with many happy memories.

AUCTION SECTION and MARKET REPORTS A View from Hickory Heights by Ann Swanson School: another year on the horizon Can it really be time for school already? I had just had this thought when my children voiced the same sentiment. Our family liked summer vacation because of the flexibility it allowed. The children did not have homework and they did not have to get to bed early. We could camp by the pond or just go on walks. Yes, summer was certainly a favorite time.

It seemed that the last year just ended and now it was time to begin once again. I no longer had to prepare for a new class, but once a teacher always a teacher. When September rolled around it was time for school. While I went to kindergarten, my husband’s education began with first grade. In those days there were no kindergarten classes around this area. At least we climbed out of

the dark ages even offering a full kindergarten session. Hurray! One year when I was teaching preschool there was one precocious young man who decided he did not like to come to preschool. His mom delicately informed me that he did not intend to come when the second semester began. While I agreed it was her right as a parent to withdraw her student, I asked her what she intended to do next year when he asked to be withdrawn from kindergarten. She admitted that she and her husband never considered that. That young man attended for the rest of the

term and did not seem upset about it either. I advocated that parents get acquainted with their children’s teachers as soon as possible. It was when teachers and parents worked together that education happened at its best. When parents supported the teacher there was no end to what can be accomplished. Most teachers have the best interest of the students at heart. It took a certain type of person to go into the educational field. Although I backed in the door because I could not afford to attend a university away from home, it was what God meant for me to do. There was no chance in-

volved in my becoming an education major. God’s hand was on my life the whole time. The years I spent teaching the children of this community were some of the happiest of my life. I looked forward to going to work each day. I looked forward to taking the educational journey with each and every class no matter what grade I taught. Every class was different. The needs of the group dictated the methods of instruction. Oh, I covered the same basic things, but I used the methods best suited to that class. I moved at the best pace for the class. Since I changed grade

levels often I worked hard. Each shift of grade meant a lot of work, but I did not mind. I looked at it as a challenge that kept me fresh. For those of you not familiar with my tenure as a teacher, I taught everything from preschool through grade six for an extended period of time. There were things that I liked about each grade level, but my favorite grade to teach was kindergarten. I loved the enthusiasm of the children as they began their educational journey. I loved the fact that I was on the ground floor instructing students in work habits and meth-

Horse operations enjoy tax breaks from new law Farm Bureau praises new exemptions for commercial equine farms ALBANY, NY — Horse owners on Aug. 8 praised a new law signed by Gov. Cuomo that extends the same legal protections and tax assessment benefits to commercial equine operations that commercial horse boarding operations currently enjoy. “This legislation is great news for

horse businesses, which are a thriving and growing segment of the rural economy,” said Dean Norton, President of New York Farm Bureau. “Farm Bureau worked hard to champion this bill and we are grateful to Sen. Patty Ritchie and Assemblyman Bill Magee for their sponsorship and efforts in pushing it through,” he said. Up until now, farms that provide

Hickory from B1 ods of study. There was always a love for school within my personality. I loved it as a student as well. My years in school were not boring. I loved to learn. I still love to learn. I chose television programs where I learned something. I liked the shows that tested my skill, too. There were some things that I had no idea why I remembered them, but I was always thankful for an excellent memory. I attended school in a small town. Some of the teachers that I had in school taught my mother or at least knew her. Some of the teachers went to the same church that I did. They shopped in the same stores and took part in the same entertainment. As I taught year after year the pattern repeated itself. I had the children of former students. That created a different type of respect entirely. Pray for the safety of the teachers and students as they move back into the school buildings. Today we deal with different factors than we ever had before. Our school doors are locked to keep out those who

are not supposed to be there. Around this area that really hit home when “Bucky Phillips” was at large. The children were not allowed out that day at all. Everyone was on high alert. He killed once, so he would not hesitate to kill again

to save his hide. Let us get on with the business of education. Educating the next generation is one of the most important things that we do. Ann Swanson writes from her home in Russell, PA. Contact at hickoryheights1@verizon.net

horse training, trail riding and riding lessons were excluded from agricultural district protections and agricultural tax assessments. But breeding and commercial horse boarding operations were eligible. The law fixed the disparity by expanding the horse operations eligible for protections. The equine industry is an important sector of the agricultural and rural economy. New York is a big horse state. The equine industry has a value of $1.83 billion, with total equine-re-

lated assets estimated at $10 billion, according to the last National Agricultural Statistical Service’s Equine Survey from 2005. Much of the sector’s value comes from revenues generated by providing equine services, such as boarding, trail riding, riding lessons, training and therapeutic riding. “This legislation fixed a big inadequacy in agricultural assessment laws among horse operations and is profound investment in the equine industry in New York State,” Norton said.

The Adirondack North Country Association Annual Meeting 2011 will include a discussion about “The State of the Adirondack North Country: A focus on economic and demographic changes since 2000”. The ANCA meeting will be held on Monday, Oct. 3, at the Lake Placid Conference Center, Lake Placid, NY. ANCA invites you to join us in Lake Placid for this event, which is open to all.

To sustain our communities and build our economies, we need to better understand economic and demographic trends and changes in the 14-county Adirondack North Country region and how these compare to the rest of New York State and to other rural places nationally. With help from Empire State Development, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and other regional develop-

ment partners, ANCA’s 2011 annual meeting will feature data-driven presentations that will help us assess our strengths and our challenges and identify key economic drivers that influence employment and the future quality of our communities. With this comprehensive picture, we hope to better define internal and external factors that can create or hinder regional vitality. It is important that this forum is taking place while the newly formed Re-

gional Economic Development Councils are working hard on strategic planning across New York State. The ANCA region encompasses all of the North Country economic development region and parts of the Capital District, Mohawk Valley and Central New York regions. Please visit www.meetingslakeplacid.com or www.adirondack.org for more information.

Oswego County Harvest Guide to be published Calling all Oswego County agriculture producers! Cornell Cooperative Extension wants to enhance your agriculture business by promoting it to the residents of Oswego County and surrounding areas. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County is in the process of creating the second edition of the Oswego County Harvest Guide. The food guide is intended to connect consumers with agricultural producers in the county. It will give anyone the information they need to find local goods. The guide is open to any and all businesses in agriculture that offer something to the public, i.e. food or services. This guide will include con-

tact information and the location of the producer’s farm or business. This is a great opportunity to market your goods and services and spread awareness of the agriculture in the county. There is a fee of $30 to be listed in the guide to offset the cost of production. The fee includes your business being printed in the Oswego County Harvest Guide, a listing on our Web site, and an official Oswego County Harvest Member sign to display at your business. If you are interested in being listed and did not already receive a mailing from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County please call Courtney Supa at 315-963-7286 ext. 203 or email cls292@cornell.edu.

You’ve been wondering about that wind mill that went up down the road for a while now. Or you’ve been curious about those solar panels on the neighbor’s barn that you watched fall into place, piece by piece. How much did those installations cost? How much electricity do they provide? Could you afford to do the same? Well, now you can get plugged in to the details of renewable energy at a farm near you — without having to peek over the fence. During the month of September, four farms around New York will open their doors to the public for a guided tour of their energy saving stategies and renewable energy systems. This year’s farm energy field days include something for everyone. Tim and Jean at Dorpers Sheep Farm will teach a do-it-yourself solar electric and solar thermal workshop. Jay and Polly

Armour at Four Winds Farm will describe their professionally installed PV electric system and share other techniques to reduce fossil fuel use. Jan and Ron Bever live off the grid at at Highland Hills Maple Sugar Farm and are eager to show you how to do the same. According to Jan Bever at Highland Hills Maple Sugar Farm, “you can afford renewable energy if you can buy a used car”. And finally, Dani Baker and David Belding at Cross Island Farms will lead a tour of their brand new 10kw wind turbine and a 7kw solar array. Combined with a 17kw back-up generator for emergencies, it is expected that this project will supply almost all of the farm’s need for electricity. All the field days are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For specific dates, times, and locations, see below. Please contact Violet Stone

at 607-255-9227 or vws7@cornell.edu to register. The Farm Energy Field Day are sponsored by the Cornell Small Farms Energy Project Team and funded by Northeast SARE (Sustainable Ag Research and Education).

Jay and Polly Armour operate a 24 acre diversified organic farm. The farm raises produce, heirloom seedlings, grass-fed beef, pasture raised turkeys, and intermittently pasture-raised pork and eggs. The centerpiece of the operation is passivesolar heated and earthcooled straw-bale vegetable barn with attached greenhouse. A 14kw grid-intertied PV electric system is situated on the barn roof, which is being financed by a combination of a NYSERDA grant and a low-interest loan. A permanent raised

bed system in the vegetable garden requires very little tractor time and hence very minimal fuel use. The Armours also transport vegetables to market in a diesel van converted to run on waste vegetable oil (WVO).

Scorching weather may call for creep feeding calves UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — The oppressive heat wave that has scorched pastures and dried water sources in recent weeks should have farmers in the Northeast thinking about using creep feeding for beef calves, according to an animal scientist in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. Creep feeding — which is simply a way to increase weaning weight by supplementing grass and milk for unweaned calves or to supplement milk production in periods of nutritional stress for cows — is a valid option now, said John Comerford, associate professor of dairy and animal science. “However, the decision to creep feed or not to creep feed is a difficult one for producers,” said Comerford, who coordinates Penn State's beef programs. “Like most other aspects of the beef business, it's a complex decision and one that has to be analyzed year after year. “This management decision has lots of variables and responses that are not always predictable.” Each producer has to weigh independently if creep feeding is financially feasible for them, noted Comerford. The logical questions to ask before creep feeding calves, he said, are “How much will it cost?” and “How much does it pay?” “Creep feeding, of course, implies there will be purchased feed provided for the calves, usually on a limited basis,” he said. “This implication also includes facilities, equipment and labor to provide the feed.” Comerford offered this sample calculation: Cost 40-calf creep feeder costing $1,000 with a 10-year life — per calf cost: $2.50 Feed at $0.20 per pound x 3.5 pounds/day x 100 days: $70 Interest on feed at 4 percent: $0.16 Total estimated cost per calf: $72.66 The payoff Additional weaning weight of 0.6 pounds/day (total 60 lbs. at $1.45/pound): $87 Net return to labor and management: $14.34 But creep feeding does not always pay off, Comerford cautions. “It appears on the surface that creep feeding would be a profitable management tool at any time, but there are other considerations,” he said. “The total weight gain should not be used as the predictor of additional value of calves. Additional weight on calves usually also implies a lower value per pound when they are sold, so the total value of the calf should be considered.” Comerford cited the following example: An examination of feeder-calf values in the Northeast from fall

NOTE: Special Heifer Sale Wed. Sept. 14th

2005 shows an average value of $1.12 per pound for 500-pound calves (total value of $560), and a value of $1.22 for calves weighing 440 pounds (total value of $536.80). “The difference in total calf value must be sufficient from feeding to add the additional 60 pounds of weight,” he explained. “For calves in which ownership is retained through the feeding period, there usually will be no advantage in weight. The non-creep calves eventually will ‘catch up.’” Other factors involved in creep-feeding calculations include feed efficiency, feed palatability and cost, carcass grade, marbling accretion, preconditioning programs and weaning. “Costs and returns should determine the decision to provide creep feed,” Comerford said. “Consider all the variations in calf value and management plans in making the decision. But if the current searing heat

continues, perhaps turning into a drought — and causing stress to cows — creep feeding is an option to be considered.”

Locally-owned small businesses pack powerful economic punch UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — Thinking small and local, not big and global, may help communities ignite longterm economic growth, according to economists in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences. Small, locally owned businesses and startups tend to generate higher incomes for people in a community than big, nonlocal firms, which can actually depress local economies, said Stephan Goetz, professor of agricultural and regional economics. “Local ownership matters in important ways,” said Goetz. “Smaller, locally owned businesses, it turns out, provide higher, long-term economic growth.” The association of small businesses with enhancing economic growth in communities, regardless of the community’s population size and density, was statistically significant, said Goetz, who serves as director of the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development. Small local businesses are stand-alone firms with 10 to 99 employees owned by residents or businesses with headquarters in the same state. The presence of large firms that employ more than 500 workers and that are headquartered in other states was associated with slower economic growth. Big-box and large corporations have internal sys-

tems for services such as accounting, legal, supply and maintenance that are not necessarily based within the county or state. In addition to outsourcing services that were once provided by community businesses, nonlocal large companies may displace more entrepreneurial small firms. Examples of non-locally owned large companies include retail chain stores such as Wal-Mart and Best Buy, and service providers such as U.S.-based call centers for car-rental agencies, banks, health care providers and telecommunications firms. According to Goetz, small businesses and startups provide more than just jobs for community members. They also can improve innovation and productivity on a local level and use other businesses in the community such as accounting and wholesalers, while larger businesses develop their own infrastructure. The researchers, who report their findings in the current issue of Economic Development Quarterly, studied data from the Edward Lowe Foundation on the economic growth and residence status of business owners in 2,953 U.S. counties, including both rural

and urban counties. “This is really a story about startups,” said Goetz. “Many communities try to bring in outside firms and large factories, but the lesson is that while there may be short-term employment gains with recruiting larger businesses, they don’t trigger long-term economic growth like startups do.” Goetz, who worked with David A. Fleming, graduate student in agricultural, environmental and regional economics, said the economic benefit of locally owned businesses appears to diminish as the firm grows. Medium-sized and large-sized businesses owned by residents are not associated with faster economic growth in later years. Goetz said a better strategy to promote economic growth may be encouraging local businesses rather than recruiting large outside firms. “We can’t look outside of the community for our economic salvation.” Goetz said. “The best strategy is to help people start new businesses and firms locally and help them grow and be successful.”
