Learning about agriculture at Montgomery County’s 11th annual Sundae on the Farm

September 26, 2011 • Let Them Know You Read COUNTRY FOLKS •

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin Agricultural education was the theme laced throughout the displays and exhibits on Dellavale Farm in Pattersonville, NY, where Montgomery County’s 11th annual Sundae on the Farm was held. Displays from the Central NY Fields Crop Team, NY Farm Bureau, NY Beef Industry Council, Montgomery County Soil & Water, Puthaven Farm’s Milking Shorthorns & Scottish Highlanders, Eastern Regional Draft Horse

Association, and Midvale Vet Clinic were only a few of the exhibits that entertained the young and young at heart. Vendors with a variety of colorful, eyecatching, seasonal produce, flowers and wooden crafts were busy with customers and tantalizing smells filled the air from the barbecue and fresh baked goods offered.

to the Sundae on the Farm event before. Zoe received the flier in her school folder. “If it hadn’t been for that flier, we wouldn’t have been here!” Her mom said. “When Zoe arrived home with it she said, ‘I want my ice cream sundae mommy! I have to go! I want to meet the Dairy Princess!” Zoe was very inspired by both of the county Dairy Princesses at the event and said she hopes to be on the Dairy Princess Court when she is old enough. Fulton County Dairy Princess, Danielle Bartlett, who attended the Montgomery County event with an exhibit, shared her regret at not being able to attend the upcoming Fulton County’s 2nd annual Day on the Farm, which will take place at Roger’s Family Orchard, near Johnstown, on Oct. 2.

A huge crowd of nearly 5,000 people visited Dellavale Farm, the host of Montgomery County’s 11th annual Sundae on the Farm.

“Even though there are fewer farms in Fulton County, I am pleased to have the opportunity to represent them through the Princess Program funded by these local dairy farmers and the American Dairy Association & Dairy Council,” Bartlett said. “I’m looking forward to reaching the thousands of dairy consumers in my county. “We have a good relationship with the local Greek yogurt manufacturer, Fage, and they have been very supportive with product for our events. That makes it much easier to get out our message of 3 servings every day of milk, cheese or yogurt.” Bartlett joined Montgomery County Dairy Princess Gabrielle Brownell and her Court to watch the notorious “hand milking contest” between Schalmont Central School teachers and the Amsterdam Central School teachers, which the Amsterdam teachers won by a hair. Back at Montgomery County’s Agriculture Economic Development’s “Cow Bus”, an “almost 2 year-old” Emmalia Sondrup was making “apple people” with her 9 year-old sister Kayla and her mom Krista. This was their second year at the event. “We love it!” Krista attested. “It’s nice to do things local and support the community.” Kayla had also received a flier in her folder at her school, McNulty Academy in Amsterdam, which informed them about the event. Sean Heins, of Scotia was a first year attendee with his four children, Logan, Kenton, Teagan and Zachary. “They love it!” Heins declared. “They’re having a ball!” Dellavale Farm’s Elma Phillips, Hostess of the event, calculates that there were over 4,700 attendees at the annual event. “It was a great day on the farm!” she said. “There were a lot of visitors who liked the different animals, the scenery, and of course the great music!” “We would like to thank everyone who donated their time, their goods, and their expertise in making this a remarkable and memorable day!” Phillips said. Sixty-six gallons of ice cream, of which Stewart’s Ice Cream Shop donated 36 gallons and Farm Bureau donated 30, was consumed by the happy, hungry crowd that gathered for the memorable, educational, agricultural day on the farm.


by Steven E Smith When Maple Lawn Farm outgrew their double six flatbarn milking facility and a retrofit pit parlor or new milking center were not realistic to install, robotic milking became the next consideration. “We are below grade at this site so we considered a separate parlor facility but determined it would have required a significant expansion of the herd. We did not want to go down that path of more forage production and manure handling issues while relying on the future of the Hispanic labor pool,” stated John Wolf. Today, nearly three years after the transition, 380 cows are milked by just seven Lely Astronaut robotic milkers at the Lyons, NY, farm. Chores with the Robot Barn Chores at Maple Lawn Farm begin at 6 a.m. as an employee checks the calving pen and then finds “fetch cows” that the system reported as not milked. Fetch cows haven’t been milked in 12 hours or are fresh cows that haven’t been milked in 8 hours. This person sorts cows for herd work and does routine barn cleaning. “Later in the evening, my parents come to the barn and bring fetch cows to the robot and check the calving pen,” stated Wolf. Cows average 2.8 milking per day. Wolf likes the high cows milked 3x and the lows a little less. “But we have found if the robot is too crowded, many cows leak which promotes problems.” The four main factors that drive cow density per robot are production level, number of withhold cows in pen, frequency of milking and milking speed of the group.

Robots know cows

Wolf indicated they have learned this balance and are obtaining their quality goals. Operation and service has been very reliable. Just 10 minutes of routine maintenance each day keeps things running smoothly. Grouping cows Wolf has a fresh group, three high groups, two heifer groups and a low group. “We have learned how to lead fresher cows and maintain later lactation production. In our herd, we lead for the first 24 days and then grain in the robot based on a feed-to-milk ratio.” Managing high cow production was fairly easy. “We did change our thinking on low cows though.” Once milk production drops below 70, a lower producer becomes a fetch cow because there are not enough energy gradients in the diet. They are in positive energy balance. Whereas cows that are earlier in lactation have a higher caloric demand that helps bring them to the robot. Subsequently our low cows actually get more grain per pound of milk in the robot,” indicated Wolf. Wolf emphasized good communication with the barn staff and data analysis are both key to managing this transition. Wolf’s herd does not pick up calories at the feed bunk the same since they are feeding 70 percent forage or more. Robots are very busy around the time TMR is delivered in the barn. “When we installed an automated TMR pusher in the barn, we saw our fetch cow numbers decline as well as dry matter intake increase.”

John Wolf has learned how to sort through the vast data set collected on each of him cows so that he can deal with day-to-day issues and when the need arises, research small issues to enhance robotic milking system performance.

New Jersey’s farmers suffer weather-related issues by Tamara Scully It’s been several weeks since Hurricane Irene saturated farm fields, causing soil erosion and crop loss. Wet ground has been keeping farmers out of the fields, delaying harvesting, spraying and even some late-season sowing. Rotational grazing has been interrupted, as low lying fields remain too wet for livestock to return. In some cases, it is much worse than others. In parts of the fertile “mucklands” in Warren County, the water is still standing. These mucklands are valuable soils which have been subject to flooding for decades. The low-lying lands border the Pequest River. During the 1950s, the river was straightened and the channel deepened in some sections, to decrease the breaching of its banks. According to reports at that time, the farmers would benefit by being able to plant earlier in the spring without fear of flooding. Today, the Warren County Soil Conservation District still sponsors yearly snag removals, to keep the river flowing freely. But with rain totals of about 15 inches during the month of August, and more rain in September, no amount of preparation could keep the fields dry. Several sod and vegetable growers farm these low-lying mucklands. The fields are crisscrossed with dirt roads and storage or equipment sheds, while the main farm buildings are located on the periphery, on higher ground. Drainage ditches were unable to cope with the deluge of rain and floodwaters. For most of the past two weeks, the fields have resembled a lake.

Livestock concerns Jeff Beach, NJDA Policy Advisor, reports scattered use of emergency livestock shelters across New Jersey. “In Irene, there were large-animal shelters established at the Atlantic, Cumberland, Salem and the Sussex County Fairgrounds, as well as at the Horse Park of New Jersey in Monmouth County. While it was reported to those of us working at the Emergency Operations Center in West Trenton throughout the hurricane and its aftermath that the Atlantic County fairgrounds had dozens of animals brought there (mostly horses), the others reported spotty use, if any at all. That difference may be due to Atlantic County being right on the coast and the other counties being further inland,” Beach said. Several Sussex County Farms suffered from damages, which impacted their livestock operations, during Hurricane Irene and its immediate aftermath. Prior to Irene, farmer Lou Tommaso, of L.L. Pittenger Farm prepared his livestock for the worse. The rotationallygrazed sheep were moved to the highest ground, along with their portable shelters. The adjacent cornfield was a natural wind block, based on the predications of the prevailing wind direction. His pastured chickens, along with their chicken-tractor, were moved to the high ground alongside the sheep, and their shelter was located to withstand the winds and to prevent water from entering. Tommaso lost 20 chickens despite having prepared their shelter for heavy rains and wind. When the winds suddenly began blowing from the opposite

by Ellen Wren Speak with any of the 71 vegetable farmers in Ulster County and you’re likely to hear the same thing — loss of crops and topsoil, destruction of infrastructure, increased labor and lean years ahead. On Aug. 29, with the arrival of Tropical Storm Irene, these farms sustained the worst flooding they’ve seen since 1955. Days later, Mother Nature struck again, with more heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee. Parts of the county received an historic 12 to 15 inches of rainfall in a matter of days. Data gathered by New York State after Irene illustrates the enormity of the destruction. Of 3,381 acres of vegetable crops in Ulster, 1,602

Pasture Walk at SS Milkyway Dairy in Lewis County A group of grazing enthusiasts and dairy farmers interested in grazing attended a pasture walk at the SS Milkyway Dairy operated by Scott Sawyer and Mark Savage. This pasture walk was co-sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Lewis County, Frans Vokey and the New York State Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (NYS-GLCI), on Wednesday, Sept. 7. The group met initially in the storage building and Scott and Mark talked about why and how they made the move to rotational grazing for their 190-cow freestall/parlor dairy. During the discussion Scott and Mark answered many questions about grazing in general and also what they have learned from grazing the past three years. Some of the reasons they gave for going to rotational grazing were; looking for a challenge, wanted to get cows outside and off concrete, reduce amount of protein fed in diet, and reduce the amount of haylage fed as part of TMR. Some other advantages they have found is that they reduced the amount of haylage fed in the diet, which in turn reduced the amount of haylage needed so chopping time has been reduced, saving time and fuel as well as wear and tear on the related equipment. Also they have noticed a large reduction in the amount of manure in the pit that

needs to be spread because cows are outside spreading it themselves. After lunch the group braved the conditions of pouring down rain and we walked through some of the laneways that have been built by Scott and Mark, fencing and a water system to make sure each paddock has water for the cows. Scott and Mark both mentioned that they have seen improvements in the amount of feed produced in the paddocks in just three years of grazing. Pasture walks have become a way for farmers to become more profitable and better use the resources they have on their farms. Most pasture walks involve the farmer telling some of the history of the farm and how and why they became involved in grazing. The group then walks the pasture and we look over some of the individual paddocks, looking for what species of grasses and legumes and what weeds are present. Some people in each group look over the height of the paddocks try to decide if the paddocks are being used efficiently or does the farmer need to increase grazing pressure or do they need to give the paddocks more or less rest.

Many farms lost much of their topsoil, rendering their land significantly less fertile. One farmer asserted that it will take 10 to 15 years for the land to recover. Moving topsoil from other areas is not an option until the infrastructures are repaired so as to insure that it will not wash away again. Two weeks after the storms, farmers gathered in the middle of the day, a time when they would normally be hard at work in the fields. They shared their stories and discussed their options. The Ferrante family saw the worst flooding in their 50 years as stewards of the New Paltz, NY, Wallkill Valley Farm. They lost all of their pumpkins, which could be seen floating down the Wallkill River for days. At least half of their corn and much of their other vegetable crops were destroyed. Their farm stand did not sustain any structural damage but much of their inventory was destroyed. Because their farm lies in a flood plain, the Ferrante family is used to dealing with the overflowing river. They have a flood preparation plan in which they move everything 33 inches off the floor. Their farm stand took on 42 inches of water, a record high. Just as they were getting a handle on the clean up from Irene, Lee brought even worse flooding and they were forced to repeat their efforts. This time, though, they moved everything that was left five feet off the floor and managed to keep it safe. Despite it all, they reopened for business, if only with resale items, as of Sept.15. Sylvester “Pete” Taliaferro’s New Paltz farm is a popular CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. He lost about 80 percent of the fall production on his 58 acres of certified organic fruits and vegetables. Though he’s been struck hard by flooding, he credits the members of his CSA for seeing him through, sighting offers of help, meals and money. Members have pledged to forgo any further farm shares for the year so he can sell what little harvest remains. Clearly grateful to his members, Pete says, “Without the CSA we would be in really big trouble, more than likely darn near out of business.”

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Costly cobs A bushel of ear corn is classically defined as weighing 35 pounds, while a bushel of shell corn (#2 grade) is supposed to weigh 56 pounds. Two bushels of ear corn weighing 35 pounds each are figured to yield, upon shelling, 56 pounds of shell corn and 14 pounds of cob. Pretty handy mathematical relationship: two bushels of ear corn yield one bushel of shell corn. These numbers are not terribly modern. I say this because with modern hybrids a dried down whole ear, reflecting state of the art breeding (in this case not genetic engineering), likely yields less cob than 20 percent. That is, 70 pounds of dry ears probably yields less than 14 pounds of cob (and thus more than 56 pounds of kernels). (Some 30 years ago, as I recall, at least one seed corn company proudly announced the arrival of “mini-cob” varieties.) Originally, based on data tallied by well-respected dairy scientists, four acres of ear corn supported as much milk as five acres of shell corn. With modern corn varieties I’m more comfortable saying that five acres of ear corn replaces six acres of shell corn. I am revisiting the benefits of whole ear corn as a cattle feed for two main reasons. First, I believe that this year a lot of corn will mature enough to be picked or combined, after corn silage needs are met. Secondly, if we accept that the cob, in conjunction with the rest of the ear, wet or dry, supports a lot of milk production, then relegating the cob to the role of worm fodder is economically very unwise. This is particularly true with modern seed corn costs approaching $100 per acre... or worse, depending on just how tight seed corn sup-

plies are for 2012 plantings. If we accept that cobs have in fact been bred to be smaller, it can be shown that the total amount of milk energy from five acres of ear corn is equal to the energy harvested from six acres of shell corn. Then add the other crop input costs, and the cob starts looking quite valuable. When I was a dairy/field crops county ag agent, the most recent research praising ear corn was complied by Cornell Dairy Scientist G.W. Merrill, who tallied feed trial results in 1971. Quoting Prof. Merrill: “When judgments against the use of high moisture ear corn for dairy cattle are presented on the basis that the digestibility of corn cobs per se is low compared to corn grain… it is inappropriately done without consideration for the quantity of cob involved and its effect on the entire ration. The assumption that the absence of cob allows more space in the digestive tract for intake of other feeds to achieve a higher energy intake and increased productivity is not supported by results of feeding trials.” That’s professor talk for “the cob puts all its rumen space to good use”. About the same time that Merrill was publishing his research, one time zone to the west, Professor Howard Larsen was tallying similar findings at the University of Wisconsin. Let me quote Dr. Larsen: “Our feeding trials show we’re getting about equal performance from high moisture shelled corn and high moisture cob corn.” Larsen went further out on the limb, commenting about butter fat, “fat percentage can be maintained at a significantly higher level with high moisture ensiled ear corn than with high moisture ensiled shell

corn, both from oxygenlimited structures.” There’s no recent research, at least that I know of, that would take issue with the findings of Professors Merrill and Larsen. The idea of replacing 60 acres of shell corn with 50 acres of ear corn makes economical sense from the standpoints of both agronomy and animal nutrition. In this scenario, I have some ideas as to how the liberated ten acres could be used. Other crops could be grown on these ten acres, preferably not row crops. Another possibility would be to let the field lie fallow, i.e., give the land a vacation.

Of the 60 acres, 50 could meet the farm’s grain needs in the form of ear corn (to feed dairy cows), and 10 could be sold as cash crop shell corn. Grain prices are getting weird for dairymen, weird in a bad sense. As of Sept. 20, the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) price of #2 shell corn for March 2012 future delivery is $7.16 per bushel, or $256 per ton. So a four ton per acre shell corn harvest (143 bushels) would be worth over $1,000 on the CBOT. Even if Northeast grain growers are not selling grain directly on the basis of futures, these CBOT prices have a lot to do with what determines what corn actually sells for. There are indications that corn futures prices have been based on unjustifiably rosey corn harvest forecasts. Let me

be specific: early May U.S. corn acreage plantings, intended and actual, were pegged by USDA at 92.3 million. The late June floods, which wiped out huge planted corn acreages in the Missouri and Mississippi flood plains, did not impact USDA’s yield forecasts, in terms of harvestable acreage. Only recently did USDA [through its National Ag Statistics Service (NASS)] lower their expected per acre corn yield projections from 153 bushels to 149. When the 2011 corn harvest experiences its final tally, odds are that total acreage will be about 1-2 percent less than this 92.3 figure, and total yield per acre will be about four percent less. Corn futures will jump a fairly decent amount when the final harvest data is tallied, particularly if China returns to the

global grain market, checkbook in hand. Did NASS mess up some statistics here with crop data? Very possibly. And if they did, that crop booboo can be added to a cow wide-shot: despite terrible heat and drought in most of Texas and New Mexico, NASS recorded 77 million more pounds of milk produced in Texas and New Mexico in July 2011, than in that month last year. Interestingly, Federal Milk Marketing Order 126, which regulates most of the milk produced in those two states, showed that total milk production in Texas and New Mexico was actually 77 million pound less for July of this year than it was in July of 2010. They say figures don’t lie, but that liars figure. Well, sometimes the figurers manage to shoot themselves in the foot.

by Ann Swanson When the weather gets cold, we look for comfort Comfort comes in many forms, but certainly one way we find comfort is in food. Now that the cold weather is returning, my thoughts turn to things that warm the body. Mugs have become a popular item. I am not sure just when they made their debut onto the scene, but once they came they were embraced. I love placing my hands around a mug of hot coffee early in the morning. When I taught school I often carried my mug through the hallway to my classroom. The mug allowed for plenty of coffee plus some head-

room so that I did not drip it along the way. My grandfather did not have a mug, but he had a generous plain white cup that he always used. Grandma on the other hand used a cup from her set of dishes as she enjoyed her breakfast cocoa. I think I used a plain white cup, too, because I wanted to be just like grandpa as I drank my cup of coffee. When I started to come to the farm I found out that mugs were the accepted cups around here. The men always wanted a mug for their coffee. Since this was a Swedish household I found out that the serving of coffee was a time tested ritual. No one ever

as souvenirs. While I love the memories, the cups do not see much use. I cannot imagine handing one of the men a fancy tea cup for his beverage. I have used them when I entertain the ladies. We used to have a neighbor club known as the Friendly Neighbor Club. When I entertained I could use my fancy cups. The ladies enjoyed a bit of luxury after a busy day. When my husband bought me our first set of dishes he picked out a brown drip-ware pattern. They were sturdy and stood the test of time. He also bought me a set of matching mugs because the cups that came with the set were very shallow. We hardly ever used the cups, but the mugs took a beating as the family and the haying crew ate at Hickory Heights. Years back I made my good dishes into my everyday dishes because

they were not as heavy as the old ones. Once again, I rejected the cups except on special occasions. When the family eats together we always grab the mugs. It does not matter if we are having coffee, tea, or cocoa, the mugs are the containers of choice. We often use mugs for soup as well. It is a large enough serving and is easier to handle than a spoon and bowl. My grandson especially enjoys dipping his grilled cheese sandwiches in his mug of tomato soup. When I ate out recently with my cousins one of them ordered French onion soup. She asked her sister if she had the recipe that their mother used to make. I did not say anything, but I was sure that I had a recipe at home. Once I remembered to look for it, I sent it off in an e-mail to my cousin. The hardest thing about making French

onion soup is slicing the four cups of onions. Along with mugs soup is the ultimate cold weather comfort food. I love homemade soup. During the fall and winter months I try to make a batch of some kind of soup each week. Since it is hard to make a small batch of soup that gives me the opportunity to share some of my leftovers with family and friends. I am sure we will get some more nice weather, but while it is cool I think I cook up a batch of soup. I am hungry for a good bowl of vegetable soup so that is most likely the first kind I will make. If it warms up, I’ll just pop my leftovers in to the freezer. It is so nice to have a batch of soup to take out on the spur of the moment if company arrives.

A View from Hickory Heights

left grandma’s house without first having a cup of coffee. Today my cupboard is filled with mugs of every shape and size. Many of them were gifts from former students. While I like some of the shapes better than others, I much prefer a mug to drink my hot beverages because things stay warm longer in them than in the fancy ones that come with sets of dishes. I also have mugs that are seasonal. When Christmas nears I haul out all of my Christmas mugs. I have enough to serve the family plus a few extra in case we have visitors. I also have a set of Easter mugs so during the spring those come out. I actually bought some extra ones since there were not enough to go around. I have a generous collection of fancy tea cups that came to me as gifts. There are also a number of them that I purchased

Agriculture’s folk hero by Stewart Truelsen America has a fondness for folk heroes, some real, some fictional, like Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberjack; frontiersmen Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone; Casey Jones, the brave engineer; Pecos Bill, the cowboy who rode a tornado; and of course Johnny Appleseed, the itinerant nurseryman. Ironically, Johnny Appleseed is perhaps the most-celebrated but least heroic. He was nothing like Daniel Boone who killed a bear with his bare hands, as the story goes. Today, Boone would be in trouble for that feat with fish and game officers and animal rights activists. Appleseed, on the other hand, wouldn’t harm

a mosquito. He put out his campfire at night so insects wouldn’t be drawn into the flames. Johnny Appleseed is one of the real folk heroes. His real name was John Chapman. He was born around the time of the Revolutionary War and is thought to be buried at Ft. Wayne, IN. Johnny Appleseed catapulted to folk hero status in the 19th century, was rediscovered by Walt Disney and remains a popular character in children’s books. One could consider him an agriculturalist because he planted orchards on America’s early frontier, largely around Ohio and Pennsylvania. But he was a very strange fellow according to a new biogra-

phy, Johnny Appleseed, The Man, the Myth, the American Story by Howard Means. Chapman usually went barefoot and wore odd headgear, including a pyramid of hats, one of which was a tin pot. His shirt was a burlap coffee sack with holes cut out for his head and arms. Each winter he would load up on apple seeds that he got for free from cider presses in Pennsylvania. Then he would strike out on foot along rivers and Indian trails to unclaimed land where he would plant the seeds in spring and make a brush fence around them to keep out the deer. Chapman later returned to collect seedlings which were

sold or bartered with newly arriving settlers, most of whom were farmers. Oftentimes they were required to plant an orchard as a stipulation of land ownership. The apples from his trees were mostly puny, sour little things, according to Means, who wondered why he didn’t use grafting techniques that were known at the time to produce a desirable apple variety. He may not have cared, Means surmised, because many of the apples were fed through a press and the juice fermented to make hard cider, brandy or vinegar. During the course of his life, Chapman bought several lots in towns along his way, leading to the conclusion

American Farm Bureau Federation that he might have been a small-time land speculator. He also was a religious zealot who approached settlers with a cheery greeting and news that he said came direct from heaven. Even by frontier standards John Chapman was an odd character, although he was welcomed wherever he went as a missionary of goodwill. The life stories of many

A Few Words by Phoebe Hall

Happy retirement Last evening on the way home from up town, my husband thought that I’d like a little side trip. Our friend, HL, after over 30 years of running a dairy farm with his wife, decided to call it quits to retire and just grow crops. So we ventured into his driveway and drove around looking at all the empty barns. It was like a big tomb, with not one animal or noise emerging from all the barns. No calves, no big heifers, not even a cat, just nothing. But they are on a mission to complete what he had originally intended to do back in the 1970’s when he began farming at this location. He entered the intended partnership as the field and crops person. But after a very short period of time the owner passed away suddenly and HL and his wife had to make some tough choices. For years they did all

the milking and chores, 24/7. My husband, with tongue in cheek, has always taken credit for HL’s successes, as he claimed he trained him right here on this farm. It was back in the mid 1950’s when all of a sudden HL appeared on the scene, then was around all the time. With both of WC’s parents working off the farm to keep the farm going and the older brothers were all out in the world, it was a perfect fit. One of the most reminisced stories from that period was about cleaning the gutter in the ‘modern’ 1939 dairy barn. It was very up to date when it was rebuilt after the 1939 fire, but in the 1950’s, farmers were starting to install modern gutter cleaners. But here it was all done with shovels and forks. One person drove the tractor and spreader through the barn and two others loaded the animal waste into the spreader. Since WC was the manager, he took the responsibility of doing the driving and HL and anyone that was unfortunate enough to wander in, would join him in this duty. Well, one Saturday morning, TS was drafted for the other gutter. He wasn’t as experienced as HL was and threw

the waste a little too hard, with the results being that HL received a good share of it all over him. When WC saw what had happened, he knew what was coming next. HL, never to be out done, threw his shovel full right over the spreader on to TS’s back as he was bending over. To make a long story short, the barn was a complete mess and not very much of the waste made it into the spreader that morning. You can only guess what HL and TS looked like after this debacle. To end this story, you just never

know any day that you wake up what your Creator is going to put in your path. But today, HL is training WC. Good going, HL, and may you enjoy the next 30 years a little more than the last 30. We know that it will seem like retirement, even though we know you’ll never completely retire. May God continue to bless you and your family on this new adventure. Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work-this is a gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 5:19) NIV

Two state-of-the-art bale-wrapping systems, designed to help producers turn silage bales into individually wrapped high-nutrition silage packages, were introduced by Vermeer. The Vermeer® SW5000 and SW5500 Silage Wrappers offer forage producers greater freedom and more flexibility, enabling them to increase their hay baling options — and window — by harvesting high-moisture forages

with moisture content up to 65 percent. “Both the SW5000 and SW5500 are ideal for operators who want more flexibility, control, wrapping speed and operator convenience,” says Phil Egging, Product Manager, Vermeer Forage Solutions. “They give you more choices while helping to reduce dry matter and leaf losses at the same time they minimize the challenges of harvesting forages at the

correct stage of maturity. Both machines also feature self-loading arms that allow you to pickup, load, wrap and dump tightly wrapped bales without leaving the tractor cab.” The SW5000 is ideal for mid-sized operations, while the SW5500 is more suited for operations with extensive silage baling needs. Once the bale is wrapped and ready to unload, a reliable cut-start system

slices the film and secures it for the next wrapping cycle. Low-profile design helps minimize punctures or tears in the film wrap and damage to the bale. To keep the operator working, both models provide storage room for three additional rolls of plastic film conveniently located on the frame. The SW5000 features a semi-automatic controller within the tractor cab, while the SW5500 is fully automatic.

When silage wrapping is completed for the day, the loading arm folds to the side of the machine creating a narrow profile and a transport width of less than 8.5’ (2.6 m).

Hurricane Irene devastates Catskills Communities Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc across the east coast — devastating homes, farmland, communities and businesses from North Carolina to Vermont. Here in the Catskills, we have witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of record-breaking flood. Flooded main streets from Sullivan to Schoharie Counties, thousands of homes without power, and water-logged fields, drowning out crops at what is traditionally the most productive point of the growing season. New York State got the brunt of the storm, and our region was hit particularly hard — of the 191 people who were rescued in New York State, 129 of them were from the Catskills. President Obama has declared New York State a federal disaster area, making emergency funding available to people in the counties of Albany,

Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Schenectady, Schoharie, and Ulster. Applications can be made at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 800-621-FEMA or 800-462-7585 (TTY). Stay engaged: One of the best things that has come from this disaster is that our communities have come together to help one another. The Watershed Post — a Catskills-based online news source — has emerged as the leading resource for information, pictures, and stories about the hurricane and subsequent floods. They have set up a live-blog providing real-time updates on storm effects and recovery at www.watershedpost.com/tags/h urricane-irene Help out: The ‘Catskills Irene Relief Resources’ Web site has a listing of emergency relief efforts — including referrals for donations and volunteer

opportunities — organized by county http://irenerelief.forumotion.com/ NOFA-NY (Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York) is working to mobilize groups of volunteers to assist in area farm cleanup and relief efforts. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Lea Kone (e-mail: Lea@nofany.org / phone: 585-271-1979 ext. 502. Benefit held: On Labor Day weekend, the Belleayre Music Festival held it’s final concert of the season,

and turned the event into a benefit for victims of the flood. Béla Fleck and the Flecktones performed on Sept. 3. The board of Directors of the Belleayre Conservatory, which operates the festival, has decided that all net proceeds from this concert will be donated to assist the flood-relief effort. Chairman of the Board Joe Kelly said that making the concert into a benefit for flood victims was a natural decision for the conservatory. “Our mission is to benefit the Catskill Region. At this moment, there is no beter way for us to help

fellow community members than by contributing what we can in the wake of the this tragedy.” Our thoughts are with those across the region who are struggling to recover in the aftermath of

the Irene. We ask you to please stay engaged and consider volunteering — be it food, shelter, money, clothes or time — to assist in these recovery efforts. Source: Catskill Mountainkeeper, Aug. 31

?Harvesting Corn That Has Some Mold? Do You Want to Preserve the Feed Quality That’s Still Available?

TRY ROASTED CORN AND SOYBEANS TO DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE! ~ Earlier Harvest - Roasting will dry corn down eight to ten points of moisture. ~ Higher Digestibility - Research studies show that roasted corn is more digestible than raw corn. The energy level increased by 30%. ~ Purer Feed - Roasting can effectively remove mold spores and reduce toxin levels that are harmful to livestock, swine and poultry.

County Soil and Water Districts - key to helping farmers recover At the request of State Agriculture Commissioner Darrel J. Aubertine, County Soil and Water Conservation Districts will be working directly with farmers to assess damage in agricultural disaster areas and identify projects for funding from the Governor’s $15 million Agricultural and Community Recovery Fund (ACRF). The Conservation Component will provide $5 million in funding for farmers to restore farms and farmlands damaged by Hurricane Irene, and prevent further damage in the future. Eligible counties include Albany, Broome, Clinton, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Lewis, Montgomery, Oneida, Orange, Otsego, Putnam, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster, Washington and Westchester counties. County Soil and Water Districts will confirm land eligibility based on site inspections of damage. For land to be eligible, the hurricane must have created a new conservation problem that, if left untreated, would: degrade the State’s natural resources; impact public drinking water supplies, present ongoing pollution risks to surface and groundwater; pose threats to production facilities, impair farm safety; affect the land’s productive capacity; or present challenges to farm production that are too costly to implement without state assistance. Eligible emergency conservation practices include, but are not limited to: debris removal; restoring fences and conservation structures; crop removal; land shaping and grading; and installation of vegetative practice including cover crop. Eligible costs include: architectural and/or engineering services; consultant services; construction and other direct expenses related to implementation. Applications for funding will be accepted from Soil and Water Districts within the eligible counties on a weekly basis until all available funds are awarded. Recovery funds requested will be re-

viewed and approved by the Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets in consultation with the State Soil and Water Conservation Committee, the agency that oversees policy and programs for New York’s 58 County Soil and Water Districts. Project selection will be based on identified need and degree of loss in consideration of the available funding for eligible counties. “Farming is the economic engine of rural New York, and we’re committed to getting that engine back up and running as quickly as possible,” said Kevin

Lewis, Soil and Water District Executive Director. “Together we will recover and these funds will help that happen.” “Soil and Water Districts have been in the forefront of agricultural recovery efforts dating back to the Dust Bowl Era,” said Ben Simons board member, Soil and Water District and Past President of Oneida County Farm Bureau. “Their technical expertise

and know-how is a tremendous asset to help our farmers and communities recover from this natural disaster.” Farmers in need of assistance in eligible counties should contact their County Soil and Water District as soon as possible at 315-736-3334. A list of county contacts can also be found on the Web at: www.nys-soilandwater.org/contacts/c ounty_offices.html.

by Mike Oscar On Thursday, Sept. 8, the House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas sent a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson criticizing the administration for downplaying farmers’ fears and for failing to respond to a series of questions posed by the committee six months after they were sent. EPA Administrator Jackson has repeatedly

come under fire from farm state lawmakers for EPA rules affecting the agricultural community, but they have dismissed some of those concerns as “myths” about EPA’s policies. In his letter, Chairman Lucas wrote, “our committee is not raising idle concerns, we are seeking forthright answers that will help farmers and ranchers make important business de-

cisions. By clarifying your agency’s intent through these questions, you can help dispel any mischaracterizations of regulations which are currently under consideration by your agency and give American businesses the regulatory certainty they need to invest in our economy.” Finally, EPA Administrator Jackson has repeatedly insisted that EPA has

no plans to regulate dust on farms, although she hasn’t ruled out the possibility. The House is planning to vote later this year on legislation that would bar EPA from regulating dust on farms, and Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced companion legislation in the Senate on Thursday, Sept. 8. Source: NDFC E-letter for Sept. 16

Vermeer introduces a new generation of Rebel® Balers Twelve years ago, Vermeer introduced the first ever hitch ‘n go baler designed to meet the needs and pocketbooks of producers with low horsepower tractors looking to roll their own highquality round bales. Today marks the launch of the new Rebel Baler generation, this time with two models — the Rebel 5420 and 5520 Balers — and several significant new features incorporated from larger Vermeer models, but still maintaining the user-friendly functionality and meeting the lower horsepower requirements of the popular original. “Because the Rebel Baler has been such a strong leader in its class, we spent a lot of time working on new features that enhanced baler performance, while keeping the functionality simple and the price very competitive,” says Phil Chrisman, Baler Product Manager. “We also wanted to answer a customer need that was not filled with the last Rebel Baler introduction. By offering both 5x4 and 5x5 models, we can now offer a 5x5 baler for owners who do not need the higher capacity balers, but want to produce larger bales at an economical price point.” With the integration of Vermeer Super M baler technology — the newly designed netwrap system and the featurefilled Bale Expert™ monitor — Rebel Baler owners will have the newest designs to help achieve the desired baling performance. Newly integrated belts with Alligator rivet laces are used for maximum strength. A new balanced density system, helps increase belt life by keeping them taut and preventing tangles, and as a result, it produces better-looking bales. Optional Haysaver wheels are easy to adjust with just a few quick turns of a wrench. The optional netwrap system is user -friendly for loading and feeding, and features a net spreading system that can wrap bales in less than 10 seconds — right to the edge. The optional Bale Expert monitor

helps customers monitor bale size and shape and prevents bale chamber overfill with an alarm system – all without the operator leaving the tractor cab. Another new feature is the optional moisture sensing kit, perfect for lifestyle producers providing the knowledge that they are putting

up high quality hay. “This new Rebel Baler offers lifestyle producers the quality and reliability of Vermeer baler technology in a package specifically designed for their needs. That’s what the Rebel brand is all about and what producers with lower horsepower tractors deserve,” says Chrisman.

With a 40 hp (30 kW) tractor the Rebel 5420 Baler produces 5’ diameter x 4’ wide (1.5 m x 1.2 m) bales that weigh up to 1,000 lbs (454 kg). The 5520 produces 5’ diameter x 5’ wide (1.5 m x 1.5 m) bales that weigh up to 1,400 lbs (635 kg). Vermeer 504N Baler

World Dairy Expo, the destination, is expecting over 65,000 producers and industry professionals to converge from 90 countries for the five-day dairy celebration. More than 2,500 head of North America’s most beautiful bovines from 37

states and 7 Canadian provinces will parade across the colored shavings within the themed Showring where official judges with a keen eye for cattle will select the champions. Each animal brings along a traveling caravan of professional fitters to make sure that their stay in Madison is clean, comfortable and relaxing. All seven major dairy breeds will compete for the ultimate overall Supreme Champion on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. This year’s commercial

trade show is “bulging at the seams” as a record 795 exhibiting companies from 28 countries will provide dairy producers a chance to explore everything from new self-propelled feed delivery systems to computerized herd management systems, rotary parlor to robotic equipment. Over 120 new companies will join this year, allowing dairy producers a chance to discover the latest inventions, go hands-on with the coolest gadgets and share the newest

ideas in dairy management. Visitors are encouraged to visit www.worlddairyexpo.com to access interactive maps that will help them locate company booths or products at the show. Daily Expo Seminars and Virtual Farm Tours provide producers multiple resources for ideas for their dairy back home. These venues bring real-world models to life and give producers a chance to exchange ideas face-to-face with the farm owners and industry professionals.

World Dairy Expo also hosts numerous competitions, including national and international judging and skills contests at the 4-H, FFA, Intercollegiate and Post-Secondary levels. In addition, winners of the 2011 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Products Contest will be sold at auction on the evening of Oct 4, and winning forage samples

Beef Council partners with Washington County Food Bank to stamp out hunger

Two young visitors to the Great American Food Drive in Washington, PA, pose with the Hereford cow statue at the Young Farmer’s Area. BEDFORD, PA — The Greater Washington County Food Bank commemorated its 30th Anniversary with a 24-hour food drive, Aug. 26-27, at the Meadows Racetrack and Casino, Washington. With partnership from the Pennsylvania Beef Council and other businesses and organizations, the Food Bank attempted to break the current world record donation of 559,885 pounds of nonperishable food. During the 24-hour period, the Food Bank collected 431,011 pounds of food that included 42,300 pounds of beef products. That food donation will feed approximately 10,100 families in Washington County and across the state. Although the collection fell short of breaking the world

record, the celebration continued through the weekend. The festival kicked-off with a concert by country music group Lonestar and continued through the day Saturday with appearances by several Pittsburgh Steelers players. Donnie Iris, Pittsburgh’s rock legend, also visited the festival. The PA Beef Council, together with several agriculture groups including the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, staged themselves in the Young Farmer’s Area to teach both young and old festival participants about Pennsylvania agriculture. For more information about the Washington County Food Bank and ways to donate, visit their Web site at www.gwcfb.org.

2011 Empire Farm Days winners announced SENECA FALLS, NY –\— Empire Farm Days has announced the winners of competitions and drawings at the 2011 farm show held at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY. Dairyman Peter Fleming of Fleming Farms in Elmira, Chemung County, NY, is already hauling feed, water, and calves with the Kubota RTV 500 he won, and is using it to fix fences when his kids are not enjoying the prize sponsored by Kubota. “I actually thought it was a joke

when someone called to say I had won. I have been attending Empire Farm Days for about 20 years and always make good contacts and learn about good products,” Fleming says. Terri Petras of Tillson, Ulster County, NY, won the Empire Farm Days Equine Center saddle sponsored by Empire Farm Days. Thirty-six students competed in the New York State FFA Welding Contest

Disaster designation allows farmers and ranchers to apply for USDA assistance TOWANDA, PA — Sheryl L. Potocek, Farm Loan Manager for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Bradford, Sullivan, Wyoming, Susquehanna, Lackawanna, Wayne, Carbon, Monroe and Luzerne counties announced that farmers in these counties are eligible for low interest emergency loans from USDA because Pennsylvania was declared a Presidential Major Disaster area due to losses caused by Tropical Storm Lee

occurring from Sept. 3 and continuing. “The designation was signed on 09/12/2011 which means farmers have until 05/14/2012 to apply for the loan,” said FLM, Potocek. “FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability.” According to FLM Potocek, emergency loans can be used to: • Restore or replace essential property; • Pay all or part of production costs associated with the disaster year;

• Pay essential family living expenses; • Reorganize the farming operation and; • Refinance certain debts. In addition to requiring that a farmer own or operate land located in the counties declared by the President as a disaster area or designated by the Secretary of Agriculture as a disaster area or quarantine area, FLM Potocek says producers need to demonstrate they are an established family farm operator and have sufficient farming or ranching experience; are citizens or permanent residents of the United States; have suffered at least a 30-percent loss in crop production or a physical loss to livestock, livestock products, real estate, or chattel property; have an acceptable credit history; are unable to receive credit from commercial sources; can provide collateral to secure the loan; and have repayment ability. “Producers can borrow up to 100 percent of physical losses, to a maximum of $500,000,” says FLM Potocek. “The current interest rate is just 2.125 percent.” FLM Potocek says loans for crop, livestock, and non-real estate losses are normally repaid within 1 to 7

years; depending on the loan purpose, repayment ability, and collateral available as loan security. In special circumstances, terms of up to 20 years may be authorized. Loans for physical losses to real estate are normally repaid within 30 years. In certain circumstances, repayment may be made over a maximum or 40 years. USDA also has made other programs available to assist farmers and ranchers, including the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE), which was approved as part of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008; the Emergency Conservation Program; Federal Crop Insurance; and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers may contact their local USDA Service Centers for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs. Additional information is also available online at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov. “Interested farmers may contact us at 200 Lake Rd, STE D, Towanda, PA 18848 or phone 570-265-6969, Ext. 2,” said FLM Potocek. “Additional information is also available online at: http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.”

Managing flood damaged crops Recent high water has caused much flooding in lowland corn and soybean fields. This has raised many questions about how to manage these crops. Based on previous experience with floods in Pennsylvania and other Northeastern states, we can expect several key issues • Affected fields will contain a lot of debris and plants will have a lot of soil on them. • Conditions will be dusty and dirty during harvest. • Farmers can experience extra costs from wear on shear bars, knives and bearings. The silage made from flood damaged fields can range from acceptable to black or rotten. Decreased milk production and performance is likely when flood damaged crops are fed. If fields sustain flooding and significant damage, contact the crop insurance adjuster to document the loss before taking action to remedy the situation. Consider contacting the local FSA office to report losses as well. Below are some recommendations and observations that may help in making harvesting and marketing decisions. Corn for silage • Corn destined for silage will be more at risk for fungal and bacterial contamination. Take steps to promote good fermentation, such as heavy inoculation and extra packing in the silos. A good fermentation will kill many (but not necessarily all) pathogens in the silage. • Target the least affected fields for silage and harvest above the silt line to

avoid soil contamination. • Avoid chopping corn for silage that has considerable dirt or silt on it. • Segregate any corn chopped for silage so that it can be evaluated before feeding. Forage should be tested before feeding, paying particular attention to dry matter percent, starch, ash, mycotoxins and fermentation profile. • Silage and high moisture corn from these fields should be evaluated at feed-out and animal health should be closely monitored. Soil contamination alone may not be a serious animal health factor, but contamination from manure, sewage treatment plants and other chemicals is unknown and could vary from one situation to another. • In all cases try to minimize the soil contamination and during feed-out, attempt to dilute these forages with normal quality forages as much as possible. Hay and pasture crops • Soil and organic matter on forage crops can also lead to fermentation issues, increased ash, decreased digestibility, and animal health problems, especially for horses. • Avoid pasturing or harvesting silt laden forage crops if at all possible. • If pastures are grazed, don't allow the animals to graze the plants too close to the ground because the majority of the contamination will be in that area of the plant. • It might be best to mow the previously flooded pastures and wait for them to regrow before grazing. • Mowed forage that has been lying in the field for more than one week should simply be chopped and blown back

onto the field, particularly if it is showing signs of molding (forage is slimy). • Roots in soil flooded for 2 to 3 weeks may die from suffocation (no oxygen available for the roots to respire). • Root diseases such as Rhizoctonia or Phyotphtora can increase in wet soils and lead to thinned stands next year. • Avoid pasturing or harvesting silt laden forage crops if at all possible. Corn for grain • Harvesting for grain is likely a better option than for silage where flooding has occurred.

Looking into poly ag tanks? Consider this …

• Combine air filters likely will need to be changed more frequently. Operators should take steps to avoid breathing the dust. • Harvest when the fodder is dry to help limit the dirt in the grain. Monitor the dirt in the corn coming into the bin and avoid the worst sections of fields. • Harvesting high-moisture corn at the drier range of acceptable levels could improve the ability to clean dirt from the corn. • The expected quality of grain is un-

Managing from A22 certain and should be monitored. The potential for crop contamination by flood waters could affect the marketability of grain and silage. Check with grain brokers for more information on marketability as it becomes available. • Monitor for sprouting. Some river bottom fields are prone to bird damage and often have some sprouting risk. The flood may exacerbate the problem. Try to adjust the combine to remove most of the sprouted grain. • Monitor for molds. Corn from flooddamaged fields should be evaluated for grain quality and kept separate if there are indications of molds. Mold and mycotoxin levels can be determined by most feed testing laboratories and used as guidance in marketing. • The risk of molds and sprouting is likely a function of the exposure to the water and stage of growth. Corn that was under water will have an increased risk for molds and bacterial rotting. This may be more pronounced in corn that was already drying down (<40 percent grain moisture) and then took on moisture during the flood. • Monitor for bacterial stalk rots.

Fields that remained flooded for more than 12 hours are most at risk for stalk rots. • The crop may mature more rapidly under these conditions, since corn that has been stressed when near maturity often seems to dry down fast. • If the grain is deemed unfit for animal use, then it will be necessary to pursue crop insurance claims. If producers expect a claim, they should consult with an adjuster prior to harvest. Other Crops • Soybean crops likely will experience increased harvest losses and increased machinery problems during harvest. Many soybeans may be impossible to harvest due to lodging and debris. Monitor grain quality prior to harvest. In summary, flood-damaged crops are at risk for quality and harvest losses, but by monitoring and managing carefully, we may be able to salvage some of them.

Farmers encouraged to report hurricane damage to their local Farm Service Agency Office SYRACUSE, NY — After surveying the cropland damage in the Schoharie Valley left in the wake of Hurricane Irene, Farm Service Agency State Executive Director James Barber announced steps producers can take to receive federal assistance from FSA programs. “In a matter of hours, Hurricane Irene destroyed what it has taken many farmers a life time to build,” Barber said. “There is nothing that can make the farmers throughout New York whole again; however, I encourage any producer that sustained crop or farmland damage to contact their local FSA office. Our goal is to identify the need and provide farmers support to help them endure this disaster and hopefully rebuild their operations.” Barber stressed the importance of producers who obtained Non-Insured Assistance Program (NAP) coverage last spring to notify their local office within 15 days of the disaster occurrence or when it is apparent their operation sustained a crop loss. Some crop damage, like to fruit and vegetables, will be more immediately evident than others like corn or forage crops which may partially recover from the hurricane. Producers who have crop insurance should contact their agents to report crop losses for insured crops. To receive NAP payments, producers should file an application immediately after harvest but no later than the 2012 acreage reporting date for the af-

fected crop. Producers will be required to provide evidence of production and note whether the crop was marketable, unmarketable, salvaged or used differently than intended. For planted crops, the natural disaster must have reduced the expected unit production of the crop by more than 50 percent of the expected production. FSA compares expected production to actual production history to determine the percentage of crop loss. NAP covers the amount of loss greater than 50 percent of the expected production based on the approved yield and reported acreage. Barber will also be requesting assistance under the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) to help farmers repair damaged cropland. ECP provides emergency funding and technical assistance for farmers to rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters. For land to be eligible, the hurricane must have created a problem that, if untreated, would affect the land’s productive capacity, represent unusual damage which is not likely to recur frequently, and be so costly to repair that assistance is required to return the land to productive agricultural use. ECP practices involve removing debris from cropland, re-grading and shaping fields and restoring fences and conservation structures. Farmers who sustained damage to their cropland should report the damage along with the estimated dollar

amount to their local FSA office. The staff will conduct a field visit to determine eligibility. In anticipation of heavy ECP workload, Barber emphasized producers should provide their local office pictures of the damage to support their claim. Signup periods will be announced if ECP funding is provided by Congress. Barber stated New York State FSA will work with the Governor’s office to request a Secretarial Disaster Declaration so Emergency Loan Program funds will be available to provide credit to farmers who sustained production and physical losses related to the storm. If approved, producers can borrow up to 100 percent of actual production or physical losses, to a maximum amount of $500,000. Emergency loan funds must be fully collateralized and may be used to re-

store or replace essential property, purchase feed, pay production costs or essential family living expenses and refinance certain debts. FSA administers several other important programs that help producers recover from disaster damage and livestock deaths. Other key programs available to address impacts from Hurricane Irene are the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP), the Emergency Livestock Assistance Program (ELAP), the Tree Assistance Program (TAP) and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) Program. Barber encouraged all producers who suffered losses related to Hurricane Irene to contact their local FSA office and speak with the staff about what type of assistance may be available.

By Judy Van Put Bridle Hil Farm The twelfth and final FARMSTOCK 2011 Working Farm Tour event was held on Saturday, Sept. 3. Scores of adults and children attended the event, which began at noon at Bridle Hill Farm, located high on a hillside overlooking Jeffersonville, NY. Despite a forecast of showers for the afternoon, the rains held out all day, and participants were happy to be able to partake in the outside events as well as those held in the barns

and indoor arena. Bridle Hill owners Elinor and Dan Young were busy getting their farm ready for the event — as some horses were brushed and saddled, while others provided demonstrations on grooming and saddling. With plenty of help on hand, thanks to staff and volunteers who handled some of the activities, the Youngs were able to divide their time, with Dan giving tours of the farm and Elinor providing individual riding

Northern Adirondack Central results from the New York State Fair The State fair has come and gone, and the Northern Adirondack FFA has had a tremendous Run in the 3 days of Competitions. In all, we had 32 placing in Junior and senior competitions as well as team and individual placing. These students worked extremely hard in preparing for these contests. We have widened the scope of the contests, to include meats and natural resources, as well as the contest that NAC FFA has always done, like dairy handling, agronomy, tree ID, wild life, and dairy foods. The students have a lot to be proud of, they have not only worked this summer getting ready for the many contest, but all year practice has bettered the students. Initially it was in the classes and then school fair, county fair, culminating in the state fair. For Kaleb Sample taking 4th place

in Dairy Handling, it was off to the Big E in Springfield, MA, in September. For Matt Carter taking First place in Dairy Handling, it is off to Nationals in Indianapolis in October. This is the second year in a row that a student from the NAC FFA has Taken first place in the State for Dairy handling. Tyler Nephew and Matt Brior both Competed in the youth and open shows at the New York State Fair. Tyler brought a calf named trinity that came in 6th in the junior show and 24th in the open show. With his Cow Bon Bon, a Senior 3 year old, Tyler placed 8th in the open show, and 3rd in the Junior Show. Matt Brior went down for the color breeds. Showing Johnny he placed 14th in the open and 7th Junior show and 6th in the other Junior show. Showing Bridget Matt placed 8th

in the open show, and 2nd in the open show Jr., and 5th in the junior show. Both young men had this opportunity because dedicated families helped them to this point and made it possible. There are a lot of people who need to be thanked, first is the students. Throughout the year, they have achieved high standards in all of their classes to be able to compete during the school year. They have worked hard to achieve better results and over all better performance during the contests. Besides being respectful compactors’, they are the leaders and future leaders of the school. They have stood by each other and built each other up to raise the standards for everyone competing. The parents need not be forgotten for a thank you. Driving kids to three hour — practices, or

staying at the county fair with us, or taking the lead on a fundraiser, this program only gets stronger with the parental involvement. It has allowed us to strengthen the program. The Northern Adirondack Board of Education, Superintendent Marlow and Principals Ross and Loughman also need to be thanked for their continued support of the Northern Adirondack FFA and Agriculture Education. NAC is the only remaining Agriculture Education program in the county. With the world population projected to be 9.3 billion people on earth, agriculture and science are playing a critical role in feeding a larger population on less land, less water, and less energy. With your support, we are preparing students for the reality and problems of tomorrow.

The Kitchen Diva by Angela Shelf Medearis A chicken in every pot With the political season under way, with all of its political promises, I’m reminded of a famous old political slogan, about “a chicken in every pot.” While the quote is often attributed to President Herbert Hoover, its origin is thought to be from King Henry IV of France. In the 17th century, he reportedly said that, “I want there to be no peasant in my kingdom so poor that he is unable to have a chicken in his pot every Sunday.” The Republican Party expanded the saying during the 1928 presidential campaign in an advertisement that promised “a chicken in every pot and a car in every backyard, to boot.” While modern-day promises have changed somewhat, it’s still a wonderful thing to come home to a pot full of flavorful chicken. If you’re the one responsible for the cooking, that could be a problem — unless you use a slow cooker to make that meal. Slow cookers use a low temperature to cook foods

and retain moisture. They generally operate at 170 F to 280 F. This might seem too low to be safe, but in fact, the slow cooker’s direct heat on the food, long cooking time and the steam produced inside a tightly covered container makes the process safe. The combination kills harmful bacteria that can cause illness. It also helps less expensive, leaner cuts of meat become tender and shrink less, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service. My recipe for Sweet and Sour Slow-Cooker Chicken contains easy convenience ingredients and is a complete and delicious meal in a pot ... and that’s a promise!

Sweet and Sour Slow-Cooker Chicken 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch strips 2 tablespoons light soy sauce 1 (16-ounce) package fresh or frozen and thawed stir-fry vegetables 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks in unsweetened juice, drained, reserving juice

1/2 cup purchased sweet-and-sour sauce 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1 teaspoon grated ginger root or 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger 1 large (about 16 ounces) can or bag crispy chow mein or rice noodles 3 green onions, white and green parts, cut into 1inch pieces 1. In 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker, combine chicken and soy sauce; mix to coat evenly. Add the stir-fry vegetables and reserved pineapple juice. Stir to combine. Cover; cook on low setting for 4 to 5 hours. 2. In small bowl, combine sweet-and-sour sauce, cornstarch and gingerroot or powdered ginger; and stir until well-blended. Stir into chicken mixture. Add pineapple chunks; stir gently to mix. 3. Increase heat setting to high; cover and cook an additional 20 to 25 minutes. Serve over chow mein noodles and sprinkle with the green onions. Makes 6 servings. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Trucks Secretary LaHood and transportation leaders join President Obama’s call for job-creating infrastructure investments WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined with Washington, D.C. officials and construction industry leaders at the construction site for D.C.’s 11th Street Bridge Project and called on Congress to pass the American Jobs Act and make significant investments in job-creating infrastructure projects. He was joined at the event by Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray, DDOT Director Terry Bellamy, and Associated General Contractors CEO Steven Sandherr. Secretary LaHood said, “We’ve got unemployed construction workers, standing by, ready to roll up their sleeves right now. This is the moment for Congress to set aside the politics and partisanship, to pass the American Jobs Act, and to put America back to work.” In his address to the nation, President Obama called on Congress to pass the American Jobs Act, which will invest in job-creating transportation projects and establish a National Infrastructure Bank, a concept with strong bipartisan support. There is also wide agreement among business leaders, labor unions, economists and elected officials that making signifi-

cant investments in America’s roads, rails, and airports will not only put hundreds of thousands of people to work quickly, it is crucial to the nation’s future economic growth and prosperity. Steven Sandherr, CEO of the Associated General Contractors, said, “There are few more effective ways to create good jobs, deliver great roads, build a strong economy and protect taxpayers than to invest in infrastructure. That is why the Associated General Contractors of America stands with the President and everyone else that is willing to make the investments needed to revive our industry and rebuild our economy.” Associated General Contractors is one of the nation’s largest trade associations for the construction industry. Secretary LaHood also called on Congress to immediately pass an extension of the surface transportation bill, which is set to expire on Sept. 30. If Congress allows the current surface transportation extension to expire, more than 4,000 federal employees will immediately go without pay. If Congress delays actions for just 10 days beyond that, nearly $1 billion in highway

funding that could be spent on construction projects across the nation would be lost. And if Congress waits even longer, almost 1 million workers could be in danger of losing their jobs over the next year. Secretary LaHood spoke at the construction site of the 11th Street Bridge Project in Washington, D.C., which could be shut down if

Congress fails to pass a surface transportation extension by Sept. 30. There are roughly 380 workers on the 11th Street Bridge project, which will reduce congestion by replacing two existing bridges with three new bridges and improving interchanges for local and freeway traffic. By 2030, these bridges will serve almost 180,000 vehicles every day — helping the region become more economi-

cally competitive. Scheduled for completion in 2013, the $300-million

project is being completed with $189 million in federal-aid.

features infra-red heat lamps and on-demand hot water for the shower. The stalls are 12’ by 12’ custom boxes, with large protected windows, automatic waterers and deep bedding. Connecting stalls feature a removable interior wall to provide adequate space for foaling. The barn houses an airy 144-foot by 80-foot by 18-foot high heated indoor arena, along with a large viewing room with sturdy impact-resistant safety glass. It was in this indoor arena that Elinor provided individual lessons. Farmstock “students” were given a lesson in English trotting — and taught how to post at a trot while on a lunge line. Both children and adults alike enjoyed having the opportunity for a private lesson in the beautiful facility. Back in the historic (1830s) converted horse barn, employees and volunteer helpers gave grooming and saddling demonstrations. Even the smallest visitors were able to take part in grooming, by standing on a chair while being closely supervised (and working with a very patient, calm horse!) Those who wished to go on a “mini Western trail ride” were issued safety helmets, and were taken outside to the lesson arena, where they were given instructions on how to mount up and ride correctly. Then, they mounted their horses and were

Tales from A25 taken around the perimeter of the barns, paddocks and pond area. The smiles on the faces of the children were enough to brighten up the cloudiest of days — and their enthusiasm at riding and working around the wellbehaved and well-cared for Bridle Hill horses carried the day. Bridle Hill Farm has just finished up its summer “Horse Camp” which runs from the last day of school in June throughout the summer till the

first day school begins in September. The farm gives private as well as group lessons and offers trail rides. This year Bridle Hill expands their offerings to include setting up for horse shows, thanks to Instructor/ Trainer Megan Bryan. Megan has trained with Olympians and worldchampions, and has successfully competed in Show Jumping, Dressage, and Three-Day Eventing. She specializes in all levels of English rid-

ing as well as horse training and competition training. For more information on lessons, trail rides, or leasing a horse at the farm, please visit www.BridleHillFarm.com or call 845-482-3993.

Mielke from B1 duced as higher forecast feed prices will reduce the rate of growth in milk per cow. Look for 2011 output to hit 195.7 billion pounds, up 100 million pounds from the August projection. That compares 192.8 billion pounds in 2010. The 2012 estimate is 198.5 billion pounds, down 300 million from last month’s estimate. Commercial exports for 2011 were raised on the strength of current product exports. 2012 fat basis exports were lowered, largely on slightly weaker butter exports. Skim solids imports were raised for both 2011 and 2012. Cheese prices for 2011 were forecast lower, but nonfat dry milk (NDM) and whey was forecast higher on the strength of relatively strong exports. Butter prices were unchanged.

FRIDAY

The Federal order Class III milk price estimate was lowered, based on the lower forecast cheese price, but the Class IV price forecast was unchanged from last month. Look for a 2011 Class III average of $18.25-$18.45 per hundredweight, down from $18.40-$18.60 expected a month ago. The 2010 average was $14.41. The 2011 Class IV price remained at $19.05-$19.35, up from $15.09 in 2010. Butter and cheese prices for 2012 were unchanged from last month’s report but NDM and whey prices were forecast higher. The 2012 Class III price forecast was unchanged from a month ago, at $16.10-$17.10, but the Class IV forecast was raised to $16.50$17.60, up a nickel. The 2011 all milk price forecast was lowered to $20.15$20.35 but was unchanged at $17.80-

$18.80 for 2012. The report showed U.S. corn production at 12.497 billion bushels, down 417 million from the August estimate. Expected yields are down across most of the Corn Belt, with an expected average of 148.1 bushels per acre, down from the August forecast of 153 bushels per acre. The soybean forecast, at 3.085 billion bushels, was up from the 3.056

billion projected in August. The higher prices are expected to curb exports and domestic use, according to USDA. Some suggest that the corn situation is such that there may be rationing in 2012, reported Dairy Profit Weekly editor Dave Natzke in Friday’s DairyLine.

Mielke from B2 Northeast are driving the concern over the supplies and price of livestock feed, he said, and was a subject of interest on Capitol Hill. Natzke said that feed supplies and prices were a dominant theme this week, as we head into the fall harvest, starting with USDA’s Crop Production and World Ag Supply & Demand Estimates reports, and culminated with a House Livestock, Dairy and Poultry subcommittee hearing to examine feed availability and its effect on the nation’s livestock producers. “Much of the concern centered on corn,” Natzke reported, and he pointed to USDA’s lowered harvest estimate, citing summer weather conditions that reduced expected yields to the lowest average since 2005. He added that this is the largest area planted to corn since 1944, but “the resulting harvest compared to expected use will leave the corn supplies at their lowest levels since 2006,” and based on those projections USDA said seasonaverage corn prices would range $6.50$6.70 per bushel. “The feed situation has prompted suggestions corn rationing may be needed in 2012, and calls

for changes in everything from U.S. energy policy regarding corn used in ethanol production and land-use policies to changes in dairy policy to help farmers manage milk-feed price margins,” Natzke warned. Increasing feed prices in relation to milk prices could also impact the federal budget. Projections from National Milk’s Roger Cryan indicate federal payments to dairy farmers through the Milk Income Loss Contract program could be triggered as early as November and run through the end of fiscal year 2012. “Feed, and resulting human food supplies may even be impacting consumer opinions,” Natzke concluded. A consumer study by the Center for Food Integrity found 40 percent of consumers surveyed said U.S. farmers should not be responsible for addressing global hunger, but rather that it was more important to teach developing nations how to feed themselves.” “Sharply higher feed prices for the balance of 2011 and into 2012 and lower forecast milk and dairy product prices next year will lead to a slight retrenchment in cow numbers,” according to

the latest Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook. However, production per cow and milk production are expected to continue to rise both this year and next, according to USDA. Cow numbers are projected at 9.2 million head this year, and output per cow was raised slightly from last month to 21,280 pounds for the year. The U.S. dairy herd in 2012 is expected to decline slightly to 9.19 million head, with most of the contraction coming in the second half of the year. With an additional milking day in 2012, milk per cow is forecast to climb by 1.5 percent to 21,605 thousand pounds. Although milk production and output per cow will be higher next year compared with 2011, the September forecast represents a

downward revision from August estimates. Meanwhile; USDA says milk production varies throughout the U.S. Dairies in the Southeast and Southwest, where high daytime temperatures have been in place for an extended period, note production is slipping. Most northern tier states indicate cow comfort has helped production rebound from the summer doldrums. Milk haulers in the Northeast are logging extra miles and hours to reach farms along routes where roadbeds were damaged by Hurricane Irene and, with the arrival of rainstorms from Tropical Storm Lee, some dairy plants reported water damage and operational disruptions. The full impact on dairy operations of wind, rain, wildfires and drought has yet

to be tallied. Dairy-quality forage availability is tight in some areas. Some operations with corn in the fields are debating whether to harvest corn for grain or silage, according to USDA, and milk processors reported bottled milk demand in the Labor Day week was steady to higher. Manufacturing capacity was adequate within most areas. Cooperatives Working Together accepted 17 requests for export assistance from Darigold, Dairy Farmers of Ameri-

down 9.1cents. Jerry Dryer reported in his September 9 Dairy and Food Market Analyst that the retail processed (barrel) cheese business is “in big trouble.” He cited retail sales data but added that processed cheese sales in the foodservice and ingredient channels “seem to be doing well.” Export orders on block cheese are resuming, Dryer wrote, “partly because of lower USA prices and partly because customers need the cheese,” but he warned that “We could see a widerthan-usual price spread blocks and barrels for the next several weeks. Cheese prices will very likely bounce around down here, maybe until the end of the month, before pushing moderately higher as holiday sales come online.” Cash butter closed September 16 at $1.9025, down a penny on the week, and 32 cents below a year ago. Only two cars traded hands on the week. The NASS average fell to $2.0356, down 2 1/2-cents. NASS powder averaged $1.5578, up a penny and a half, and dry whey averaged 58.9 cents, up 0.1 cent. Butter dropped below $2 faster than e-Dairy economist Bill Brooks expected, according to his Tuesday’s DairyLine report. Retailers are thinking about what they’ll be doing promotion wise for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, he said, and “may hold off seeing how low the price will go.” The downturn is not good news for farmers, he acknowledged, but will probably spur sales. A few weeks ago, retailers probably weren’t giving much thought to butter promotions with prices above $2, he said. People are “a little nervous” as to where cheese prices will go, according

to Brooks. Buyers may be looking for more downside while sellers hope the price moves higher, he said, and as a result, prices are “tracking sideways.” He also mentioned that the football season provides some support for Cheddar demand in particular and then shifts to pizza and Mozzarella. “Anyone who watched some football over the weekend probably saw numerous pizza commercials providing some pretty decent pricing points for purchases of pizza,” Brooks said. He mentioned a national chain that’s giving away pizza to members of e-mail groups and “that will help push the non-American, rather than the American cheese and maybe keep some of the milk out of Cheddar facilities,” he concluded, “and the price decline will also help Christmas sales.” Another factor playing into the downturn in cash dairy prices is that dairy exports were off in July. Jerry Dryer blamed high prices “taking their toll in markets around the globe.” Cheese exports, for example, were up just 4 percent versus a year ago, he said, after being up 22 percent in April through June and 61 percent higher, January through June. Skim milk powder exports, on the other hand, staged a recovery in July, up 22 percent from 2010. Exports were up just 2.8 percent in the April to June period. Ditto for whey products, according to Dryer, up 23 percent for July after trailing year-ago levels by 13 percent during the preceding three-month period. Lactose was up 10 percent during July; up 19 percent April thru June, but butter shipments fell 40 percent in July after being up 37 percent April

Eligibility for Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) due to effects of Hurricane Irene Have you lost work or income due to the effects of Hurricane Irene on. If so, you may be eligible for Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA). What is DUA? DUA is a Federal program that provides payments to people in a Federally-declared disaster area who have lost work or income due to the disaster. the New York State Department of Labor determines if claims filed under the program are valid, and makes payments to those who qualify. the Federal government funds the DUA program. President Obama declared several counties in New York major disaster areas at Governor Cuomo’s request. Who is eligible? If you live or work in Albany, Clinton, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Greene, Montgomery, Nassau, Orange, Otsego, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster, Warren and Westchester counties; and you lost your job or income due to the effects of Hurricane Irene, you may qualify for DUA. there are different eligibility requirements for DUA than regular unemployment insurance. You may qualify even if you are self employed, and even if you do not qualify for regular unemployment insurance. Some situations that qualify for DUA include: • You were injured in the disaster and are unable to work, whether you are an employee or self employed. • Your workplace was damaged, destroyed, or you can’t get there because of the disaster. • Your transportation to work is not available because of the disaster. • You must travel to your job through the affected area, and you cannot do that because of the disaster. • You were about to begin work, but could not be-

cause of the disaster. • You are now the breadwinner or major support for a household because the former head of household died in the disaster. • You are out of work because the Federal government took over or closed the facility where you worked. • Most of your income comes from areas affected by the disaster, whether you worked for yourself or for an employer, and your business is down as a direct result of the disaster. How do I apply for DUA? First, file for regular unemployment insurance by calling the New York State Department of Labor at 888209-8124, or 877-358-5306 (if you live out of state). Answer the questions to indicate that you lost your job as a direct result of the effects of hurricane Irene. File your application with the New York State Department of Labor as soon as possible. APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY OCT. 3, 2011. When you file for unemployment insurance benefits, you should have the following information ready and available: • Your social security number, • Your New York State driver’s license or Motor Vehicle ID card number, if you have one, • Your mailing address and zip code, • A telephone number where you can be reached for additional information, • Your alien registration card number, if you have one, and www.labor.state.ny.us • the names and addresses of all employers you worked for within the 18 months prior to Aug. 29, 2011, including any in another state.

USDA’s Dairy Market News reports that international prices on whole and skim milk powder and whey are lower in both Europe and Oceania and that milk production is higher in both Australia and New Zealand. New Zealand milk supplies are building and processing plants are ramping up production,” according to DMN. Price trends have shown slight weakness in recent weeks, according to the e-Dairy’s Insider Closing Bell, and “internationally, the decline in the Euro the past two weeks has made products from that region lower in relative value.” Checking the other side of the ledger; National Milk’s Import

Watch shows U.S. dairy imports were up but still below the average of the last five years, according to NMPF’s Jim Tillison in Thursday’s DairyLine. The Italian cheese category, for example, was up this year from 2010 but below the five year average. He stressed that the report is designed to keep Federation members informed of what is happening to dairy imports “so we don’t get close to the safeguard levels and find ourselves in a situation where we have imports displacing U.S. product.” A huge import issue was milk protein concentrates, according to Tillison, but those imports continue to decline on a fairly steady

basis, he said. He admitted that, while dairy imports were up slightly in the first six months of 2011, “our exports of dairy products are

much much higher than the imports. There’s a very positive trade imbalance as far as dairy is concerned.”

Help children recognize dangerous behavior of farm animals Progressive Agriculture Foundation provides safety tips to help parents and children understand volatile animal behavior and its warning signs Working with animals on a farm setting can be a very dangerous task, especially for children. In order to keep kids safe in rural, farm or ranch settings, it is important for adults to teach children of the dangers animals pose and how to safely interact with animals. “The best piece of advice is to teach your children to stay away from farm animals completely unless they have adult supervision. Farm animals can be very unpredictable and can often engage in dangerous behavior, putting you and your child at risk,” says Bernard Geschke, program specialist with the Progressive Agriculture Foundation (PAF). There are many ways to avoid injury when dealing with animals. How can parents teach their child about dangerous-animal warning signs and situations? Geschke offers these rules parents can share with their children: • Stay away from mothers with young offspring. It is a normal instinct for a mother to protect her baby, and if startled or threatened, a mother animal could move to protect her baby, becoming very dangerous. • Be quiet and calm. When you are around farm animals, be calm, move slowly, avoid making sudden jerks or movements, and always approach them from the front so they can see what you are doing. Don’t scream or run around them because it will upset them. • Do not interrupt animals that are

eating. Animals may become aggressive if they feel that their food supply is being threatened. • Stay away from farm animals. They can be unpredictable and should be treated with caution at all times. Watch out for animals with raised or pinned ears, bared teeth, raised hair on the back or tail or those that are pawing at the ground, stomping or snorting. These are signs that the animal is in an aggressive or upset state, and it is best to stay away from them during those times. Safety tips such as these are examples of the things children learn when they attend Progressive Agriculture Safety Days, which are held each year in local communities throughout North America. Safety Days are fun, hands-on oneday events that provide children with education and training which can keep them and those around them safer and healthier on a farm or ranch, and at home. The program explores more than 30 topics, including ATVs, firearms, water/outdoor safety and knife safety. PAF provides the curriculum, coordinator training, take-home bags, T-shirts and other resources to help make the Safety Days reality. PAF is committed to providing farm and ranch safety and health education to children across rural America in an effort to reduce farm or ranch-related injuries and death.

HARRISBURG, PA — Historic artifacts reflecting rural life in the dairy industry return to the All-American Dairy Show through the 14th AllDairy Antiques and Collectibles Show, set for Sept. 16-21 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg. Held in the Dairy Activities Center, show hours are Friday, Sept. 16, from noon to 5 p.m., and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Sept. 17-21. The third annual auction is

set for Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 6 p.m., in the center and will feature highquality unique and rare antique items. Families are once again invited to display their large collections of dairy antiques and current items that relate to their farms. While the Holstein breed will take center stage this year, all antiques enthusiasts are encouraged to participate, as the show is not only an excellent opportunity to display,

but to buy, sell or trade items. It is also an exceptional educational opportunity for show visitors and noncollectors as all display items will feature a date of origin and descriptive infor mation, providing showgoers a deeper connection to America’s rich dairying heritage. This year’s show includes 35 exhibitors representing 10 different states. Some antiques to be highlighted include: • A collection of Hol-

stein breed milk bottles, exhibited by Jean Gilmore of Ligonier, PA. • A 1922 framed true type model bull, exhibited by Darwin Braund, State College, PA. • A variety of dairy utensils, milk equipment, milk bottles and butter churns from Robert Dunn, New Ringgold, PA. • A life size milking model Holstein cow, exhibited by Robert Dunn. • Dairy industry artifacts exhibited by David Evans, Litchfield, MI.

Tips for a successful breeding season by Dr. Scott P. Greiner, Extension Animal Scientist, VA Tech The start of the fall breeding season is just around the corner. Proper management of both rams and ewes prior to, during, and after the breeding season is critical for a successful subsequent lambing season. Ram Management Most often, newly purchased ram lambs are coming off a high plane of nutrition heading into their first breeding season (completing a structured performance test, or managed on the farm for high growth rates to optimize maturity). To prepare ram lambs for the breeding season, rams should be “hardened up” prior to introduction with ewes. This can be accomplished through limit feeding grain while on pasture. The amount of supplementation will vary according to the ram’s body condition and pasture quality, but as a guideline 1-2 percent of body weight will suffice to achieve a moderate body condition at the start of the breeding season (not excessively fat or thin). Be certain that housing and facilities provides adequate shade and ventilation so that rams can stay cool. These principles also apply to mature rams, which may be new to the flock or been in use for several years. Exposure to high temperatures can compromise the reproductive soundness of rams. Newly acquired ram lambs should not be commingled with older, mature rams either prior to or during the breeding season. Particular care should be taken if rams from different sources (of similar age) need to be

commingled and all commingling should take place prior to the breeding season. Prior to the start of the breeding season, all rams should be subjected to a breeding soundness exam by a veterinarian. The breeding soundness exam assess the physical fitness of the ram, and most importantly the ram’s reproductive soundness and capability of settling ewes. Plan ahead to allow adequate time to find a replacement ram should an existing sire be found to be a non-breeder. Many factors influence the breeding capacity of rams, including age, breed, nutrition, management, and environment. As a general guideline, ram lambs are capable of breeding 15 to 25 ewes during their first breeding season, and most mature rams can service 50 or more ewes. All rams, and particularly ram lambs, should be observed closely to monitor their breeding behavior and libido to ensure they are servicing and settling ewes. The use of a marking harness, rotating colors every 17 days, is an excellent management tool for this purpose. The breeding season should be kept to a maximum of 60 days for young rams. This will prevent over-use, severe weight loss and reduced libido. Severe weight loss may impair future growth and development of the young ram and reduce his lifetime usefulness. When practical, supplementing ram lambs with grain during the breeding season will reduce excessive weight loss (feeding rate of 2 percent bodyweight daily). Rams used together in multiple-sire

breeding pastures should be of similar age and size. Ram lambs cannot compete with mature rams in the same breeding pasture. A sound management practice is to rotate rams among different breeding pastures every 1734 days. This practice decreases the breeding pressure on a single ram. Ewe Management Some advance planning and simple management practices will assist in having a successful breeding season. Vaccination of the ewe flock for Campylobacter (vibrio) and Chlamydia are important for abortion disease control. For ewe lambs and ewes not previously vaccinated, these products typically require an initial injection prior to the breeding season followed by a second vaccination during gestation. In subsequent years, a single booster vaccination is required. Follow product label directions when administering any vaccine. A month prior to the breeding season is also an opportune time to trim and inspect feet on the ewe flock and perform preventative foot care. This is also a good time to make final culling decisions and sell poor producing and thin ewes. Flushing is the practice of increasing energy intake, and therefore body condition, during the 10-14 days prior to breeding. This practice has been shown to be effective in increasing ovulation rates, and thereby increasing lambing percentage by 10-20 percent. The response to flushing is affected by several factors, including the body condition of the ewe and time of the breeding season. Ewes that are in

poor body condition will respond most favorably to the increase in energy, whereas fat ewes will show little if any response. Flushing can be accomplished by moving ewes to high quality pastures or through providing .75 to 1.25 pounds of corn or barley per head per day from two weeks pre-breeding through four weeks into the breeding season. Provide a high-selenium, sheep mineral free choice. Like rams, ewes are also prone to heat stress during the breeding seasons. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can have an effect on ewe fertility and embryo survival. To help reduce these embryo losses and resulting decrease in lamb crop, minimize handling during the heat of the day and allow the flock access to a cool, shaded area. Ram Management After the Breeding Season Young rams require a relatively high plane of nutrition following the breeding season to replenish body condition and meet demands for continued growth. Body condition and projected mature size of the ram will determine his nutrient requirements during the months following the breeding season. Rams should be kept away from ewes in an isolated facility or pasture after the breeding season. In the winter months, provide cover from extreme weather that may cause frostbite to the scrotum resulting in decreased fertility. Source: Livestock Update, August 2011
