First responders give tractor safety demonstration Car versus tractor ~ never an equal match by Sally Colby A sobering headline: Police say a car trying to pass a slow-moving tractor on a rural road in Yates County, New York, collided with a van full of Amish farmers from Steuben County, killing five people and injuring nine others. “This is a scene we see all too often,” said Dave Hill, senior extension associate and agricultural emergency management program director at Penn State. “There are developments where farms used to be, and those developments are residences for non-farm people who are driving on the roads. We find ourselves sharing the roads with people who don’t understand farm equipment. A lot of these people have less patience — they’re in a hurry and just want to go down the road. They don’t want to be bothered by a tractor that’s pulling an implement from field to field.” Hill manages a program aimed at training first responders who help at farm-related accidents. “We teach fire fighters how to respond to agricultural accidents,” he said. “Tractor turn-overs, machinery entanglements, silo entrapments.” Hill also oversees a farm-family program that teaches farm families what to do while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive. “The peak time for farm vehicle accidents is late afternoon — from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.,” said Hill, “and June and October are the peak months for

accidents. The majority of accidents occur when the tractor driver turns left. That person behind you has been putting up with your speed for long enough, so he tries to pass. He can’t see you, and he tries to pass just as you’re turning left.” Hill says that before making a left turn, tractor drivers should pull into the right lane so that they can see everyone behind them prior to turning. He added that the second most common accident is rear-end collisions, many of which are the result of someone is talking on a cell phone, texting or distracted in some other way. “They’re driving at 55 mph, become distracted, and all of the sudden there’s a tractor and implement in front of them going 15 mph.” That type of accident, a rear-ender, is what a team of first responders demonstrated to a huge crowd at Penn State during Ag Progress Days. Hill explained the process for accident response, noting that police are usually first to arrive on the scene. “Next, the fire chief and the rest of the company arrive to stabilize the scene,” he said. “The tractor and car are stabilized so that they don’t roll. The EMS will focus on stabilizing victims and preparing them for transport to the hospital.” The team worked carefully and seamlessly; first stabilizing the woman (a volunteer) who had fallen from the tractor and then working to extricate the driver (a dummy) from the car.

In some cases, parts of the vehicle must be removed to gain access to additional victims.

“We have a ‘golden hour’ rule,” said Hill. “The victim has a much better chance of surviving their injuries if we can get them to a surgeon at a trauma center within an hour.” Hill noted the accident in New York brought numerous rescue workers to the scene, including several helicopters. “The farm vehicle was a field sprayer loaded with chemicals,” he said. “It wasn’t leaking, but it would’ve been a more serious incident if the tank had been breached.” Throughout the demonstration, Hill discussed some of the most important safety measures for those who drive farm equipment on pub-

lic roads. “As farm equipment gets bigger, it also gets faster,” he said. “If you’re driving farm equipment on the highway, make sure you’re driving at the appropriate speed for the equipment. Some of the new tractors are designed to be operated in excess of 25 mph — that’s fine if you’re pulling implements that are also designed to go 25 mph. High-speed tractors with low speed implements are not a good combination.” Hill also noted that all equipment operators should be properly

trained, and that equipment should be wellmaintained and roadworthy with hitch pins, steering, tires, bearings and brakes in good condition. The slow moving vehicle (SMV) sign should be in good condition and properly mounted. “It’s designed to be mounted on the back of equipment for equipment traveling at 25 mph or slower,” said Hill. “The inside triangle is visible during daylight hours and the outside triangle is visible at night. Consider an escort vehicle on busy

rural roads so that people behind know what’s going on. Use proper lighting and take every opportunity to let nonfarm neighbors understand the issues of moving farm equipment on the highway.” Hill says accidents involving automobiles and farm vehicles are becoming more frequent. “Tractors are getting bigger and there are more non-farm people in rural communities,” he said. “It’s our obligation to inform people at every opportunity about farm equipment on the road.”

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin “We are absolutely ecstatic with the crowd this year!” exclaimed Juli Webster, organizer of the Mohawk Valley’s 10th annual Garlic & Herb Festival. The event turned into a regular jubilee with a record crowd, 57 vendors, garlic cuisine, three bands, and perfect, sunny weather for the event. “It’s really wonderful!” said first year vendor, Krysta Kearney, whose Loveland Farms booth was stocked not only with garlic, but also with fresh cut flowers, fresh organic produce, freshly mixed granola, and more. “We’re used to going to the normal smaller farmer’s markets, and I’m actually surprised at how many people are here. It’s been really wonderful!” Kearney plans on returning again next year to take part in the annual festival. All along Canal Street, and in Sterziner Park, Little Falls, NY, vendors displayed a variety of herbs, aromatic foods, colorful seasonal flowers and produce, handcrafted artisan items, and more than 50 varieties of garlic, and garlic for seeding. Diane Reilly, of Emerald Valley Acres, Fultonville, NY, was one vendor who had many return customers from previous years looking for garlic to seed their own crops. “It was our best year ever!” Reilly said enthusiastically. “The Mohawk

Valley has the perfect soil and climate for growing garlic and it’s wonderful to have this opportunity to be able to sell it, and to educate the people attending the festival about garlic. Hopefully, by the time they left, they have learned that all garlic is not alike.” Reilly laughed. This was Reilly’s fourth year at the event as a vendor. She said she has developed many regular customers from attending this agricultural event, with several repeat customers calling her as early as April to place their orders. The festival, which was founded in 2001, has become a staple in the Herkimer County community, drawing in thousands of people from all over the Mohawk Valley and beyond. The festival provides an opportunity for local farmers and vendors to educate folks on the benefits of growing garlic and herbs, and gives people an opportunity to make new connections. Herbalists Brenda and Michael Henry, vendors from Brenda’s Natural Foods in Rome, NY, have been exhibiting at the Festival for all 10 years and have seen the growth in the marketplace. Folks buying herbs surrounded their booth and were also purchasing the fresh baked cookies at the exhibit. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Herkimer

County’s Jill Turner was on hand to provide information, recipes, and newly printed Herkimer County Local Foods Map. The maps lists and shows location of 47 farms in Herkimer County that produce and sell produce. It also provides information on Herkimer County’s farmers’ markets. Turner stated the map was made possible through the “Creating Healthy Places in New York” grant that was awarded to the Herkimer County Health Net. “We at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Herkimer County are working along with the Health Net on the grant,” Turner said, “promoting eating local, eating well, and eating together. We are working on encouraging everyone to eat fresh, locally grown foods along with providing healthier food options in local convenient and small grocery stores.” Turner was also handing out recipes and information on buying, using, storing, and harvesting garlic, which was provided by CCE. One of the highlights of Garlic & Herb Festival is the Garlic Queen Pageant, which benefits scholarships in the Miss Mohawk Valley program. Laurie Jean Britton, Executive Director of Miss Mohawk Valley Scholarship Program, hosted this annual event. The Mohawk Valley Garlic and Herb Festival

Juli Webster (left), Co-Chair and organizer of the Mohawk Valley Garlic & Herb Festival kept busy serving customers throughout the day, and noted that this was the biggest year yet.

Committee is responsible for the creating this annual event in an effort to recognize local agriculture, educate the public, and promote the production and consumption of garlic and herbs. The committee looks for garlic and herb food vendors with original themes and quality products, and is supported by the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts. One-third of all admission fees is donated to the Center, with the remainder being used to support the Festival. A new feature this year was the raffling of a New Holland Rustler Utility Vehicle. Proceeds from this raffle will be used to paint an agriculturally accurate mural honoring one of the event’s founding fathers, Adam Hugick. Tickets from this raffle are still available.

Recovering after the storm by Ellen Wren Green and orange pumpkins of every size floated down the Rondout Creek and the Wallkill River for days after Tropical Storm Irene hit Ulster County. Children fished them out of the murky water and entertained themselves by carving and decorating them. During the several days of power outages, the pumpkins felt like a gift, a little excitement for the kids during the stressful post-storm period. In the small town of Rosendale, nearly every home had at least one battered pumpkin gracing their doorstep. The fact that it was barely September and too soon for pumpkins was not lost on the kids, nor was the unconventional delivery method of those odd pumpkins. Growing up visiting farm stands for fresh corn and cider doughnuts, the connection was swift. The pumpkins were the talk of the town. Children could be heard wondering, “But which farm did it come from? How do we pay for this?” Farmers with flooded fields and devastated crops were wondering the very same thing, “How do we pay for this?” Ulster County growers have had to recover before. However, it’s been nearly 60 years since they’ve had to recover from loss and damage as severe as what Tropical Storms Irene and Lee brought in late summer. As the long haul of recovery marches on, many farmers have taken recovery efforts into their own hands to help themselves and their fellow farmers. The Rondout Valley Grower’s Association (RVGA), made up of over 50 growers is doing just that. Their annual Food and Wine in the Orchard event was held Oct. 8 at Stone Ridge Orchard in Stone Ridge, NY. Besides the usual live music,

local food, RVGA officially kicked off a special fundraiser, The Paper Pumpkin Project. After being contacted by someone wanting to pay for pumpkins “delivered” to them by Hurricane Irene, President and member, Bruce Davenport got creative. He came up with the idea of selling paper pumpkins to raise funds for RVGA members whose farms were devastated. The pumpkins are meant to be displayed as a show of support for local farms. They will be sold at $1 “per pound”, allowing people to contribute at whatever level they can afford. Two versions of the paper pumpkins, one left blank for decoration, will be available at farm stands and other businesses throughout the area. In many cases, individual farmers are trying their hands at fundraising. Ray Bradley, of Bradley Farm in New Paltz lost almost everything. In order to begin recovery, he has taken some creative measures. The farm has a sophisticated Web site which links to an online store where supporters can buy “Fresh and Dirty, Bradley Farms” t-shirts. For a $100 PayPal donation, a farm supporter can have a row of vegetables named after them. Loyal patrons of his booths at greenmarkets in New York City made their way upstate recently for Bradley’s fall party, altered this year to be a fundraising event. For $20, people received a generous dinner of local food prepared on the farm. Photo ops around the farm and Chicken Scat Bingo were added to the agenda to bring in additional income. Just down the road from Bradley Farm lies Evolutionary Organics Farm. Kira Kinney saw 19 of her 22 acres go under water during the floods. Her efforts to get back on her feet include a

unique approach. Kira has registered her farm at myregistry.com. There, friends and supporters can purchase, via PayPal, gift certificates for seeds, chicken feed, potting soil or make a donation for “general farm support”. At her greenmarket booth in New York City, Kinney is selling photographs of her farm taken during better times. Kira has also set up a sort of “debit card” system. Customers pre-pay now and will use their credit for goods in the spring. In a letter to her farm market email list she writes “One thing I do say about myself is that I am an idea factory, so I will get there some how, it is just going to take a little time.” After losing the majority of their crops, Taliaferro Farms in New Paltz received an outpouring of support in the form of donations of labor, meals and cash from its CSA members. Sylvester “Pete” Taliaferro, whose home was also flooded, gave high praise to them as well as the larger community. “It’s just been unbelievable; the support we’ve gotten from the community has helped us out tremendously,” said Taliaferro. His plan and advice: “Just muddle along and try to get to the end of the season.” The community is indeed rallying in many different ways. On Oct. 4, the Rosendale Theater Cooperative (RTC) presented the documentary film “Food Over Knife” to benefit local farms. Carrie Wykoff of Events That Matter and board member of the RTC explains that the pumpkins were the spark for this effort, “In Rosendale we saw many a pumpkin come down the Rondout Creek right behind Main Street. We knew that those pumpkins were from a farm and that there was a lot of devastation. The RTC wants to help support the growers as they re-built and replant.” All proceeds were donated to

RVGA, where they will be distributed to Ulster county farms in need. “New Paltz Flood Aid — Farmers, Families and First Responders” signs sprouted up as flood waters receded. The non-profit was quickly established to assess damage and gather resources to rebuild. They are hosting an all day benefit concert on Oct. 16 at Hasbrouck Park in New Paltz. A long list of local musicians will be donating their time and talent to entertain guests. Besides the admission fee, income will be generated by the sale of T-shirts, food and raffles, all donated by the community. Funds will be distributed based on need. On campus at SUNY New Paltz, another benefit was held. The first annual Farmfest! Local Food Celebration is part of The Village of New Paltz Local Food Week (Oct. 2-9). It was planned far before the floods as a free event to connect people to growers. In response to the floods, Farmfest! joined forces with Flood Aid and held a silent auction and art raffle to benefit area farms. Across the river in Dutchess County, the Rhinebeck Farmers Market Hurricane Recovery Fundraiser is selling, among other things, inexpensive farm themed T-shirts and greeting cards created and donated by a local artist. This effort will benefit surrounding farms, including some in Ulster County. There has been a great deal of loss and uncertainty, but one thing is evident. Farmers are fighting back. They’re using their resources creatively and accepting help that the community is offering. Says Kira Kinney, “Farming can be such a solitary thing, that you lose sight of the impact we have on others. When so many people step up to help you it is a little hard to believe and comprehend.”

by Julie Cushine-Rigg Within the beautiful Helderberg Mountains in the town of Knox, NY, Cheryl and Dale Frantzen operate their family farm, Frantzen’s Scenic Acres. The farm was bought by Dale’s parents in the 1940s as a working dairy farm, though like many dairy farms from the early and mid part of the last century, it has transitioned from dairy to growing crops and raising animals for meat. Today, the Frantzens, along with their children Sarah and Adam, are raising a variety of vegetables, poultry, and beef cattle on 135 acres. “Both Dale and I were raised on farms. My grandparents owned a dairy farm in Vermont, and Dale’s family was running the dairy farm here. Several years ago we decided not to continue with the dairy end of the farm,” said Cheryl. So instead of selling or subdividing the land, the couple branched out into growing and later beef cattle. What the Frantzens do differently than some other farms is that they specialize in heritage breeds — as part of their mission statement/pamphlet says, “We focus on sustainable breeds so that in the future we will not be dependent upon hatcheries and other breeders for our stock. We have been incubating and hatching our turkey poults since we began.” How the Frantzens decided to raise heritage breeds comes from memories of Cheryl’s grandparent’s farm in Vermont. On a visit there, Cheryl recalls, “My grandfather always raised a Charlet for beef every year. I remember we had the most delicious roast beef for dinner when Dale and I went to visit them once and thinking, ‘I can raise beef like this too’.” Up until 1998 the Frantzens were raising a couple of different breeds for beef cattle, including the Charlets, and finishing them on grain. From there they researched other breeds for producing cattle and started raising Scottish Highlanders for their adaptability to the hilly terrain and climate of the Heldeberg Mountains. It was a great choice to breed for the Franten’s partly because there was an otherwise unusable and overgrown field on the farm. A steep slope and overwhelming shrubbery were obstacles in that field, but the Frantzen’s used the Highlanders to manage the unruly vegetation. That, together with the Highlander’s ability to maneuver the terrain in the hilly Heldebergs has been a good match so far. “They’ll go and clean up that whole area. Plus, their meat is lean, as low in cholesterol as the white meat of

chicken,” Cheryl states. What the Highlanders lack in marbling, they make up for in taste. A customer of the Frantzens had even placed an order for a share before their first cow was raised. “They heard about what we were doing and placed an order to us through e-mail.” The heritage breeds don’t stop with cattle. The farm is also raising heritage breeds of chickens, goose, duck, turkey, and most recently, rabbit. Cheryl says of their new additions, “The Silver Fox Rabbit is only the second breed of rabbit to be created in the United States and is very rare. They are very docile, have a higher survival rate and a higher meat-to-bone ratio than other meat rabbits. Rabbit meat is the highest in protein of any meat and very lean; therefore, very nutritious.” Chickens raised by the Frantzens include Freedom Rangers, a breed raised in France out on pastures. What has become a reflection of what consumers are buying, the farm now sells whole birds and has phased out selling halves, which was very popular for a long time. Most customers don’t realize the breed of chickens that are raised for meat, but seems be changing as farmers like Cheryl and Dale reach out to the food buying public who are eager to learn about where their food comes from. Turkey breeds being raised on Frantzen’s Scenic Acres include Regal Reds and they are becoming more and more in demand for farm customers, especially around the Thanksgiving holiday. “The Regal Reds have a more true turkey flavor, it has a little longer to develop that kind of nuttiness to the taste,” Cheryl reports. She also says that customers really have taken a liking to the breed and that the farm has sold out of turkeys for the past few years that they’ve been raising them. In 2009 the farm sold over 50 turkeys to customers from all around the Capital Region including Saratoga. The following year was even better for the family — selling over 60 turkeys. In addition to animals, the farm grows tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, onions, shallots, carrots beets and potatoes. Perhaps their most popular variety comes in the potato crops — they grow fingerlings, Adirondack blues, and red new potatoes. “The colors are really intriguing to the children. When they see a blue or a red potato they’re more likely to try it,” said Cheryl. Frantzen Scenic Acres — bringing heritage breeds back.

Senator Casey will introduce The Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2011 While we were in Washington, D.C., [the week of Sept. 26], staff members of Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. (D-PA), announced that the Pennsylvania Senator will be introducing the Federal Milk Marketing Act of 2011 [hopefully the week of Oct. 3]. Senator Casey along with former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, had introduced the original version of the Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act. Presently we are seeking other U.S. Senators to co-sponsor the proposed bill. Dairy farmers, agri-business people and all interested parties should be contacting their U.S. Senators and urge them to co-sponsor the proposed bill. In our opinion the Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2011 is the only proposed dairy legislation that will allow the average dairy farmer to cover their cost of operation and return a profit to his dairy farm. The continued decline in the value of manufactured dairy products, which will result in substantial lower prices to dairy farmers clearly indicates that dairy farmers deserve a new pricing formula to cover their continued increase in operating their dairy farms. Another important reason for a new pricing formula: In the past we have printed out several reasons why all dairy farmers deserve a new pricing formula. Now we have another reason. When Congress passed legislation that implemented the Milk Income Loss Contract payments (MILC) on Class I milk, they established the Class I target price (for the MILC program) at $16.94 per cwt. The $16.94 price actually was the same Class I price that was used in the former Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact. After a few years of the $16.94 Class I target price, the U.S. Congress implemented a feed adjuster which resulted in a higher Class I target price. Some people are estimating the target price could reach $22 per cwt this fall. This could call for MILC payments to be made later on. However, for the time being let’s forget about the MILC payments. More importantly the probable $22 target price for Class I milk, (again

for MILC payments) means there will be a $5.06 per cwt increase in the dairy farmers cost of production for the cost of feeding his dairy animals. However, what about the remaining cost of production on the dairy farmers operation? These costs have also escalated. As I observe the cost of production figures issued by the USDA, it appears that approximately 50 percent of the dairy farmers’ cost of production figures are related to feed costs and 50 percent for all other costs of production. With this in mind, then if the target price for Class I milk (again for the MILC payments) raised $5 per cwt because of the increase in feed costs since the beginning of the MILC program, than all other costs also raised approximately $5 per cwt. With these calculations then the true value of Class I milk in Federal Order Number 1 should be approximately $27 per cwt. Is this too high? I don’t think so. The highest Class I price in Federal Order Number 1 was $25.16 per cwt in September 2007. In Pennsylvania, the PA Milk Marketing Board had a premium on fluid milk of approximately $2 per cwt over the $25.16 which meant a total Class I price of approximately $27.16. In order Number 1, if you subtract the $3.25 per cwt differential it would leave a manufactured price of $23.75. Isn’t this strange; the USDA’s cost of production figures indicate the National Average cost of producing milk for June of 2011 was $23.62. This is only $0.13 per cwt different from calculating the price through the MILC payments of $27 per cwt for Class I milk. No matter how you analyze it, by using USDA’s figures, every dairy farmer must realize by now exactly why things have been tough and unrealistic to the average dairy farmer. These figures should convince the dairy farmers that the only way they can cover their cost and realize a profit on their dairy farm is to support the Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2011.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Bio-char: diamond in the rough My friend Bob asked me to research the soil amendment characteristics of bio-char, since he manufactures several fertilizer-type products with his pelletizing business. According to the Wikipedia on-line encyclopedia, bio-char is a high-carbon, finegrained residue, originally produced using centuries-old techniques. It is charcoal produced in the earth, subjected to great heat in the absence of oxygen; if oxygen is present, combustion occurs, resulting in flames. Bio-char is also called terra preta (literally “black earth”) is a manmade soil of prehistoric origin that is higher in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and calcium than adjacent soils. Biochar controls water and reduces leaching of nutrients from the rhizosphere. Rich in humus, pieces of hundreds- ofyears old unfired clay

pottery, and black carbon, it is a haven for beneficial microbes, that promotes and sustains the growth of mycorrhizae. Mycorrhizae are the minute fibrous colonies of bacteria and fungi which surround and nourish plant root tips. Thus, biochar has been shown to retain its fertility for thousands of years. In university trials, terra preta has increased crop yields by as much as 800 percent. These soils are manmade, generally about two feet deep, most typically created by South American natives prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus (preColumbian). They achieved such through the incorporation of charcoal and unfired ceramic pieces into the earth. Nowadays, it is even possible to produce carbon-negative useable energy (such as biodiesel or hydrogen) while making the major input, biochar, for farm use. Terra

preta sequesters carbon at such a high rate that farming with this technique could be eligible for lucrative carbon credits. Farsighted academics embrace the properties of terra preta, documenting such with unbiased university scientific studies. Bio-char advocates consider terra preta to be the cornerstone of a proposed agricultural system that would both feed starving populations and solve global warming.

These centuries-old manmade soils are commonly found in the Brazilian Amazon basin and other regions of South America in parcels averaging 50 acres. Terra preta soils are very popular with the local farmers and are used especially to produce cash crops such as papaya and mango, which grow about three times as rapidly as on surrounding infertile soils. These special soils are laced with shards of unfired pottery. Such artifacts were likely introduced into the soil just like modern growers add perlite or sand to potting mix. Shards served to keep the soil from baking

hard under the tropical sun, before a cover of vegetation could grow over it. Some authorities believe that this pottery was made solely for incorporation into these soils. William Devan, a geologist from the University of Wisconsin, who is prominent in terra preta research, commented: “The black terra preta is associated with long-enduring Indian village sites, and is filled with ceramics, animal and fish bones, and other cultural debris. (These soils) have generally sustained this fertility to the present despite the tropical climate and despite frequent or periodic cultivation. This is probably

because of high carbon content and an associated high microbial activity which is self perpetuating.” In fact, archeologists have proven that there were large preColumbian indigenous populations thriving in some of the world’s largest, and cleanest, cities in the Americas. In addition to great achievements in art and architecture, these early peoples bred the ancestral forms of modern crops, such as maize (corn), sunflower, beans, potato, sweet potato, tomato, peanut, avocado, tobacco and cotton). They also developed the “three sisters” practice,

which involved planting a trio of symbiotic unrelated species together: maize, squash, and beans… a simple, very effective, form of biodiversity. When the Europeans arrived, production of terra preta stopped. These foreigners brought disease and hostile treatment to the natives, which decimated the labor force required to create terra preta (it was labor-intensive). But it was undoubtedly the introduction of the Spanish steel axe that led to slash-and-burn by small bands of people, replacing slash-and-char by large

groups. When clearing land with a stone axe, a conservation of all biomas and an intensification of soil production becomes a necessity. Steel axes — and, later, chainsaws — contributed to exploiting the very short-term benefits of ash. Traditional methods can die out in a single generation, and in that Amazonian social structure, the elders were responsible for all technical knowledge. Most likely the elders were the hardest hit by epidemics, and the loss of their cultural knowledge, combined with social disruption, would

lead to the replacement of a deeply effective technology with a much less-effective substitute. Recently high-carbon terra preta-like soils have been discovered outside of the Amazon, in Holland, Japan, South Africa and Indonesia, and are currently being studied. Can carbon inputs other than charcoal be used? The Japanese are extensively investigating the use of coal dust for promoting field fertility. Coal dust does seem to reproduce many of the positive effects of wood charcoal. Those who want to use coal dust for soil fertility need to make certain that the dust is from brown coal, which is more humic, and that the coal does not contain toxins. The research of Siegfried Marian on the benefits of carbon incorporation, as reported in Leonard Ridzon’s The Carbon Connection and The Carbon Cycle, led to the development of Ridzon’s NutriCarb product, which claimed agricultural benefits very similar to those claimed for terra preta. NutriCarb stopped being produced following Mr. Ridzon’s passing several years ago. I talked to Ridzon about 10 years ago, and he wanted me to get involved in marketing NutriCarb, which, I must admit, I did not understand very well. Samples he gave me smelled like chimney creosote. But apparently NutriCarb detoxified soils and enhanced crop performance. A question often asked is how is terra preta is linked to alternative energy and climate change abatement. Terra preta is a carbon sink, as is most carbon in the soil. Slash-and-burn agriculture contributes greatly to global warming. If terra preta technologies were applied to tropical farming, less

land would have to be cleared for farming, and if farmers in temperate zones such as the Midwest incorporated charcoal or other chars into their soil, more carbon could be sequestered. If this char is produced by appropriate technology, such as pyrolysis (heat applied, absent oxygen), both fuel and a “restorative, high-carbon fertilizer” can be produced. This process does not require wood — it is just as effective when agricultural wastes, such as manure from all species, as well as wasted feed, and even peanut shells — are subjected to pyrolysis. How much charcoal needs to be incorporated? In published reports on plot tests of the effect of charcoal on plant growth, incorporation at 20-30 percent by weight tended to consistently produce the most benefit. In row crops, this would translate to at least 200 tons of char incorporated in the top six inches of an acre… an investment that can be amortized over a few centuries. In many parts of the U.S. we’re destroying soils in much less time than that. Think of another carbon processing project, this one totally natural, requiring tremendous pressure. Most of the men reading the column have given one of these to a woman. One the writers I studied, who wrote about bio-char, said that a form of terra preta can be created by seriously overheating a loaf of bread in a microwave. The shrunken, very black, end product, if oxygen is sufficiently lacking, is bio-char. If you try this experiment, be sure to have baking soda handy, just in case your micro-wave contains more oxygen than you planned on.

by Cyndie Sirekis Steering clear of “producer” and “industry” when talking about food grown or raised by America’s farm and ranch families was one of the tidbits of advice offered at a recent gathering of Farm Bureau members and staff from around the country involved in agricultural promotion and education. The solution? Just use farmer. J. Scott Vernon Ph.D., a featured speaker at Farm Bureau’s national Promotion & Education Conference, is the founder of I Love Farmers… They Feed My Soul and a professor of agricultural education and communication at California Polytechnic State University. He is not alone in urging food producers to call themselves farmers. Vernon and the board of directors of I Love Farmers, none of whom are older than 25, do stand out in the growing field of those dubbed “agri-

cultural advocates” due to their chosen methods of engaging with the non-farming public. Provocative is an apt description for some of the strategies used by the young agricultural enthusiasts (ages 15-25) who make up I Love Farmers, the 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded by Vernon to “create a conversation among peers about our food, our farmers and our future.” The slogan “Where’s the Food, Without the Farmer?” is one example. Tee shirts, ball caps and temporary rub-on tattoos emblazoned with the slogan are wildly popular as conversation starters when worn by supporters. Hosting rap and reggae concerts and using social media are other fun ways to get points about today’s farming across to young people, according to Vernon. Going even further afield from the

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE American Farm Bureau Federation traditional venues ag advocates often frequent to reach the public, such as farmers’ markets and community fairs, supporters have placed “I Love Farmers” artwork in tattoo parlors. Spreading the word about today’s agriculture in tattoo parlors may have some merit. According to the Web site VanishingTattoo.com, which features facts and statistics about inked body art, 14 percent of Americans now have one or more tattoos. That’s up from 6 percent in 1936. Looking at age breakdowns is even more revealing. A 2006 a study done by the Journal of the American Academy of

Dermatology found that 36 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 have at least one tattoo. Expanding the age bracket studied up to 50 reveals that 40 percent sport some ink. Despite the growing prevalence and increased acceptance of tattoos, does Vernon really think people will ask for “I Love Farming… it Feeds My Soul” tattoos? Not at all, he says. “This is just one more place where we can reach people and get them talking about food and farming,” he suggests. Cyndie Sirekis is director of news services with the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Red Angus National Convention opens with commercial symposium by Tina L. LaVallee The 2011 Red Angus National Convention kicked off with a commercial cattle symposium in Durham, NC on Sept. 14. The symposium was hosted by the Red Angus Association of the Carolinas and was free of charge to give local cattlemen an opportunity to hear some of the distinguished speakers who had traveled to the state as part of the national convention. More than 160 attendees from as far away as Montana and Colorado came

to Durham to experience the southern hospitality. The president and executive secretary of the Canadian Angus Association were also in attendance to hear the latest news on America’s fourth largest beef breed. This was the first time the Red Angus National Convention was held in North Carolina, but Greenville, SC was the site of the 2005 event. The Red Angus Association of the Carolinas, which encompasses both states, was established in 2004 to serve the

growing popularity of the breed in the southeast. “We’re excited to have the Red Angus National Convention here,” said Mark Morgan, national board representative for the Northeastern Region. “Preparations have been under way for a whole year.” The Carolinas may not the first place that comes to mind when one thinks of beef cattle production, but the entire southeast is experiencing steady growth and Red Angus are playing a significant role. “We can see by our national

membership that the breed is moving east,” said Morgan. “We see excellent growth potential throughout the eastern United States because of the Red Angus’s excellent disposition combined with the heterosis (crossbreeding) benefits for the commercial cattleman.” The activity in the Carolinas has not gone unnoticed. “The Red Angus Association of the Carolinas is one of the fastest growing in the United States,” said Greg Comstock, Chief Executive

Producer News Officer of the Red Angus Association. “Southeastern cattlemen have different needs from those west of the Mississippi and Red Angus are increasing in all areas, especially where heat tolerance is an issue. Redhided cattle offer better adaptive qualities in many situations.” The Commercial Cattlemen’s Symposium featured a stellar group of speakers on the topic of adding profitability to

the commercial cowherd. Dr. Tonya Amen, genetics expert for Pfizer, began with an explanation of genomic enhanced EPDs and their importance to commercial breeders. “GE-EPDs can help track the most efficient sires, identify bulls with low fertility, and those that produce the highest value at the feedlot,” she explained. Cows also benefit from genetic evaluation. “Genomic

Great cattle along with superb customer service, from a family that has been breeding Angus cattle for over 50 years. These are just a couple of the reasons that numerous cattlemen gathered at Trowbridge Farms on Sunday, Sept. 18, to bid at their annual

Angus female auction. Named “The Family Affair” this years’ sale additionally had Trowbridge customers marketing cattle through the auction — 12 families from throughout the Northeast participated. After the last animal went through the

ring and the auctioneer said, “Sold” there had been buyers from all over New York, as well as 12 other states and 2 provinces of Canada. More information on Trowbridge Farms, including an informative video that looks into their operation more in-

depth, can be found at www.TrowbridgeFarms.com. Please watch for details regarding their upcoming Customer Preconditioned Feeder Calf Sale. Sale report

and Continental breeds. Next, Dr. Joseph Cassidy, Associate Professor at North Carolina State University, gave an interesting report on a joint study being conducted with Mississippi State University on the rate of hair coat shedding and its effect on cow performance. Data is being gathered on 5,000 cows in an effort to learn the effects of a heavier, slow shedding hair coat on heat stress and calf weight gain. Heat stress is a major factor in the south and southeast where high humidity slows a cow’s natural system of evaporative cooling. The session concluded with Larry Keenan, director of Beef Improvement for the Red Angus Association of America. He emphasized the importance of the whole herd reporting that has been implemented within the Red Angus breed since its inception and how the information gained can help select and retain cattle for the cow/ calf producer. Red Angus CEO Greg Comstock summarized the symposium by stating

that the Red Angus Association’s full herd reporting system provides very

clean data sets which make predicting certain traits easier and that the organization is focused on making this information more meaningful to the rancher’s profitability. “We cannot become disconnected from the commercial customer. Our goal must be to produce seedstock that fulfills these needs. We want to add value through superior Red Angus genetics and we help accomplish this by providing accurate genetic predictions to our members.”

Convention from A12 data adds accuracy to the standard EPD, which is strictly an estimate. A single genomic test can add as much information as data collected on eight natural calves, a lifetime’s produce for a cow.” This data available at an early age can identify the potential worth of female even before her first breeding, thus allowing better informed decisions regarding sire selection and a heifer’s retention in the herd. Dr. Gordon Jones, Professor at Western Kentucky University, addressed essential cow herd traits. He stated that females must have adaptability to the local environment and forages, good disposition, calving ease, fertility, and longevity. Of these, Jones considered the most important trait to be longevity. “A heifer does not turn a profit until her third or fourth calf. She must be physically able to stay in a producer’s herd long enough to earn her keep.” As for achieving longevity, Jones recommended judicious crossbreeding with British cattle such as the Red Angus

Dr. Tonya Amen, genetics expert for Pfizer, discussed the importance of genomically enhanced EPDs. Photos by Tina L. LaVallee

If a tree could talk The other day, my husband came up from cutting wood and told me that one of the largest trees on the farm had blown over in this April’s 90-mile per hour wind. It was a fence line border tree between three different farms. He said that he thought I’d like to see it before he cut it up for firewood. Late Sunday afternoon we made the trip down the lane. He wasn’t exaggerating. After measuring it we realized the tree was over 100 feet high and around 15 feet in circumference. That huge fallen tree,

even lying on its side, was still massive, measuring over four feet in diameter, 30 feet from the base. The closest we could estimate by counting the rings was that it began growing before the Civil War. If it could talk, I can only imagine what it might tell us. I’m sure it would open up a lot of hidden stories we didn’t know about. It’s mind boggling just how much has changed since that tree began its growth. Horse and buggies were replaced by the horseless carriage. Oxen and workhorses made way for the iron horse. The Erie Barge Canal was a major means of

changing upward trend. Back in the 1950’s 20,000 pounds of milk, with 800 pounds of butterfat per cow was a pipe dream, but today it is being surpassed. New apple varieties are coming on the scene every year, replacing old proven ones, all planted on dwarf stock, on trellises. Just look at all the major world conflicts that have taken place in the last 150 years. Today, look at the amount of money that is needed in our national budget for our defense. Back 100 years ago, airplanes were barely making it across our nation in a week, but today our military fighters can make that same trip in hours. I wonder what that tree might try and tell us that might be the answer to all the worlds’ problems that we face

presently. Look at how many more people we have to feed today on this earth, compared to 150 years ago. Just a few years ago we were being paid not to produce certain crops, because there was such a surplus. Today, there is talk of rationing certain crops. Everyday, more and more people are asking why we are using corn for ethanol production when supplies are tight. I always wonder why people are reluctant to let the farmers get a small piece of the action, like our friends in the oil business. Don’t they realize they are going to pay for it, either in their food prices or at the pump? I guess we’ll all have to make some tough choices! We are being forced to readjust our thinking on our food supplies and those supplying it. The weather has become the focal point for everyone’s survival and reigns supreme in our minds, not just for vacations and pleasure, but for our existence. What has not changed in all these years? Take a walk outside on a clear crisp night and look up into the heavens and take in the view of all the stars that are still where they always have been since creation. Gaze at the moon as it moves majestically across the sky,

night after night. Look at the eastern horizon every morning and watch the sun unerringly bring the break of day and warm your hearts. Watch for a rainbow after a summer rain and look into the eyes of a child as they see one for the first time. Our Creator loves us so much that He made all this for our enjoyment. He is so awesome and majestic that it is almost impossible for our human minds to even begin to comprehend what He is able and can do. We find it hard to believe that He loves us so much that He knows the numbers of hairs on our head. It is His desire that we all accept His free gift and spend eternity with Him. Even the trees and all the plants on the earth are always looking and reaching up towards their Creator. We are a blessed people. But we forget sometimes to thank Him for all this beauty! We all get tired and want to lie down like that tree did after all those years. For there is hope for a tree — if it’s cut down it sprouts again and grows tender, new branches. Though its roots have grown old in the earth, and its stump decays, it may sprout and bud again at the touch of water, like a new seeding. (Job 14:7,8 &9) TLB

?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.

A View from Hickory Heights by Ann Swanson Pumpkins in short supply Usually my grandson has lots of pumpkins to sell, but this year they are in short supply. If he has enough for the family, that is about it. Once again the growing season this year played a trick on this crop. While the vines grew, they rapidly shriveled up from lack of moisture. I heard an announcer on the radio reiterate the same message. If you hope to have a pumpkin to make a jack-o-lantern you better get it as soon as they are out unless you live in an area that was not part of the drought.

Years ago we used to grow pie pumpkins. They are smaller and sweeter than those used for jacko-lanterns. We used the pumpkins we grew for small jack-o-lanterns. I always kept stubs of candles to light the little jack-o-lanterns. Once the pumpkins were all picked my mother-in-law canned and froze the meat of them. First we cleaned out the seeds, then, we cut the flesh into small pieces that could be boiled or baked. Once they were cooled we removed the skin and mashed them. I froze most of mine because I did not have a pressure canner at the time.

I wonder if pie pumpkins are in the same boat. Since they grow during the same time frame I assume they are. We just recovered from a short crop a couple years ago where the cans of pumpkin flew off the shelves as quickly as they were stocked. I wonder what this season will bring. No matter how you look at it farmers play a game of chance as they head into their fields each spring. They sow the seeds in faith that there will be enough sun and rain to grow a good crop. Then they wait to

see how things play out. The return may swell the coffers or they may get very little. It is always a gamble. I have to say that businesses no matter what they are the ultimate gamble. An investor puts money into a business hoping for an adequate return. That is not always the case. I feel fortunate to have some pumpkin put away so I know I will be able to make pies, breads, and pancakes. The October birthdays are coming up fast. I know my daughter-inlaw intends to make pumpkin pie for her

son’s birthday. I thought we were doing something different this year but the boy has chosen for us to go to the Audubon Society to celebrate once again. We wander the trails where “animals” tell about themselves, and then we go into the building for cider and popcorn. We have our pie at home when we

are all done. It really is a very nice night as long as the weather is decent. My baking skill will be called into play when we celebrate for my son and daughter. I’ll make pie for him, but my daughter prefers cake. Ann Swanson writes from her home in Russell, PA. Contact at hickoryheights1@verizon.net

Fire safety by Anna Meyerhoff, Farm Safety Educator, New York Center for Agricultural Medicine & Health (NYCAMH) Fire is a major hazard around the farm and in our homes. Fires can be started by things like

electrical equipment, chemical reactions, cigarettes and matches, sparks from machinery, batteries and motors. Flammable materials such as hay, straw, bedding, cobwebs, dust,

paint, fertilizer and chemicals can also cause a fire. Accelerants like gasoline, oil or aerosol cans make a fire spread faster. To be prepared and stay safe: • Keep accelerants and flammable materials away from heat, flame or sparks • Install smoke alarms. Change the batteries and test the alarms every six months • Run regular fire drills so everyone knows what

to do if there is a fire • Know where phones, emergency exits and fire extinguishers are • Post emergency phone numbers and directions to the farm at every phone • Clean up fire hazards like brush, oily rags and dust • Check electrical cords, plugs and outlets to make sure they are safe • Don’t leave heaters on or plugged in when

they are not being used When a small fire breaks out, make sure everyone gets to safety and call for help. You may be able to put it out with a fire extinguisher if you act quickly. To use one, just remember to PASS: Pull, Aim, Squeeze and Sweep. • Pull: Pull the pin at the top of the extinguisher. This lets you squeeze the handle to discharge it. • Aim: Don’t aim for

the flames near the top of the fire. You must aim for the base of the fire. • Squeeze: Squeeze the handle to release the extinguishing agent. When you let go of the handle, the discharge stops. • Sweep: Using a sweeping motion, move the extinguisher back and forth from side to side to put the fire out. Always stay at a safe distance and don’t ever turn your back on a fire. If the fire starts to spread, back away and leave the area right away. Remember, fire can spread quickly! As part of our Farm Emergency Response Program, NYCAMH can provide farms in New York with free fire extinguisher training, available in English and Spanish. We continue to offer free on-farm safety training and surveys as well. For more information, please contact me by calling 800-3437527, ext 291 or e-mail ameyerhoff@nycamh.co m.

Get ready for fall harvest with renewed focus on tractor safety Get ready: the fall harvest season is nearly upon us. The so-called “lazy” days of summer will undoubtedly give way to a very busy harvest for farmers across the county, increasing the likelihood for fatigue and risk of injury for tractor operators logging extra hours in the fields. That is why Kubota Tractor Corporation is reminding all tractor and equipment users to brush up on 10 critical safety reminders — Kubota’s Ten Commandments to Tractor Safety — before harvest season officially gets underway. “At Kubota, we advocate for safe operating practices year-round, but especially during peak seasons like harvest,” said Greg Embury, vice president of sales and marketing, Kubota Tractor Corporation. “As the end of summer moves to fall, it is a good time to remind everyone who operates tractors and heavy equipment — farmers, ranchers and their families — about tractor safety to help prevent serious injury or fatality due to an unfortunate accident.” Safety starts with use of a Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) According to the National Safety Council, if all tractors were equipped with a ROPS and a safety belt, about 350 lives would be saved each year. Make sure your tractor — old and new — has a fully operational ROPS. Along with a fastened seatbelt, ROPS provides a protective zone around the operator, which proves to be highly effective in preventing serious injury and death due to tractor rollovers. Here are Kubota’s “Ten Commandments of Tractor Safety” and important reminders for tractor operators for a yearround commitment to safe operating practices: 1. Know your tractor, its implements and how they work. Please read and understand the Operator’s Manual(s) before operating the equipment. Also, keep your equipment in good condition. 2. Use ROPS and a seatbelt whenever and wherever applicable. If your tractor has a foldable ROPS, fold it down only when absolutely necessary and fold it up and lock it again as soon as possible. Do not wear

the seatbelt when the ROPS is folded.* Most tractor fatalities are caused by overturns. (*Kubota Tractor Corporation strongly recommends the use of ROPS and seatbelts in almost all applications.) 3. Be familiar with your terrain and work area — walk the area first to be sure and drive safely. Use special caution on slopes, slow down for all turns and

stay off the highway whenever possible. 4. Never start an engine in a closed shed or garage. Exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide, which is colorless, odorless — and deadly. 5. Always keep your PTO properly shielded. Make it a habit to walk around your tractor and PTO driven implement — never walk over, through or between the tractor and implement, particu-

larly if either is running. The PTO rotates with enough speed and strength to kill you. 6. Keep your hitches low and always on the drawbar. Otherwise, your tractor might flip over backwards. 7. Never get off a moving tractor or leave it with its engine running. Shut it down before leaving the seat. 8. Never refuel while the engine is running or

hot. Additionally, do not add coolant to the radiator while the engine is hot; hot coolant can erupt and scald. 9. Keep all children off and away from your tractor and its implements at all times. Children are generally attracted to tractors and the work they do. However, a tractor’s work is not child’s play. Remember, a child’s disappointment is fleeting, while

your memory of his or her injury or death resulting from riding the tractor with you, or being too close, will last a lifetime. 10. Never be in a hurry or take chances about anything you do with your tractor. Think safety first, then take your time and do it right. For more information, visit www.ProgressiveAg.org.


Seeking clarification on costly, burdensome uncertainties arising from Clean Water Act The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and the Public Lands Council (PLC) recently filed an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in the Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) case, which will likely be argued in January 2012. Dustin Van Liew, PLC executive director and NCBA direc-

tor of federal lands, said Sackett v. EPA could set a dangerous precedent allowing EPA and other federal agencies to make jurisdictional determinations that are not judicially or administratively reviewable. In 2005, Chantell and Michael Sackett purchased a plot of land, less than one acre in size, to build a home.

However, in 2007, after filling in half the lot with gravel in preparation for construction, EPA issued the Sacketts an “Administrative Compliance Order” (ACO), alleging the land was a wetland subject to Clean Water Act (CWA) jurisdiction and ordered the Sacketts to restore the land to its original condition or face nearly

$50,000 in fines per day. The Sackett family appealed for a hearing on their alleged violation but was denied by EPA and the federal court. According to Van Liew, the court threw out the case because it determined that the CWA prevented judicial review ACOs until the enforcement actions have been issued by federal agen-

cies. He said the Sacketts could not challenge the compliance order until they refused to do what it instructed and consequently were fined tens of thousands of dollars. “Like millions of Americans regularly do, the Sacketts rightfully purchased land to build their dream home. Unfortunately, instead of building that home, they

have spent the past four years battling EPA and the courts,” Van Liew said. “The Sacketts weren’t trying to cut corners. They followed the rules and now they just want a fair shake in the courts. The uncertainty surrounding the CWA permitting process and the time and financial costs associated with it has left them with abysmal options of submitting to the regulator’s demands and the costs associated with those demands, risking catastrophic fines for noncompliance or investing significant time and resources pursuing a permit. In this process, the only winner is the federal government. Private landowners lose.” According to NCBA Deputy Environmental Counsel Ashley Lyon, this case could have farreaching impacts on farmers and ranchers and all private landowners. She said the CWA has morphed from a statute to protect our nation’s waters in to a tool for regulators to micromanage daily decisions of private landowners. She said the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether petitioners may seek pre-enforcement judicial review of ACOs and whether petitioners’ current inability to seek preenforcement judicial review of the ACO violates their rights under the Due Process Clause. “The brief NCBA and PLC filed in this case pushes for a decision that affirms a landowner’s right to challenge a jurisdictional determination before they are required to either go through the costly and time-consuming permitting process or are fined thousands of dollars,” L yon said. “Today it is private landowners, who followed the rules, attempting to build a home but private landowners, including farmers and ranchers, will no doubt face future challenges if EPA and other federal agencies’ decisions are not subject to judicial and administration review. We are hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will consider the sweeping impact this case could have our all private landowners in this country.”

Pork Checkoff recommends producers and workers get flu vaccination As the United States enters another flu season, the Pork Checkoff is advising producers, farm personnel and others who have contact with pigs to get the seasonal flu vaccination as soon as possible to help protect human and pig health. “It’s always wise for producers and swine farm workers to reduce the risk of getting sick and bringing the flu to the farm or workplace by getting vaccinated,” said Jennifer Koeman, director of producer and public health for the

Pork Checkoff. “It also demonstrates the industry’s ‘We Care’ approach to protecting employees, animals and public health.” According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, all people over the age of 6 months of age should be immunized for influenza each year. “People may remain contagious for up to five to seven days after getting sick,” Koeman said. “That’s why it’s so crucial that employers have a sickleave policy that encourages those ex-

periencing symptoms of influenza-like illness to stay home.” At the farm level, good building ventilation and good hygiene can help reduce transmission of flu viruses. “To prevent pigs and humans from other species’ influenza viruses, producers also should look at bird-proofing their buildings, protecting feed from birds and enforcing biosecurity practices, such as the use of farm-specific clothing and footwear,” Koeman said. According to Lisa Becton, Pork Checkoff’s director of swine health in-

formation and research, “It’s very important to monitor your herd’s health daily and contact your herd veterinarian if influenza is suspected. Rapid detection of influenza can help producers and their veterinarians implement appropriate strategies to better manage sick pigs.” Additional general flu-related information can be found at www.cdc.gov/flu. The Pork Checkoff also has a factsheet on influenza, “Influenza: Pigs, People and Public Health.”

Monsanto donates $25,000 to Flight 93 National Memorial We will never forget. On Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2001, the U.S. came under attack when four commercial airliners were hijacked and used to strike targets on the ground. Nearly 3,000 people tragically lost their lives. Because of the actions of the 40 passengers and crew aboard one of the planes, Flight 93, the attack on the U.S. Capitol was thwarted. Monsanto has joined other companies to bring recognition and honor to those who sacrificed their lives by donating $25,000 to the Flight 93 National Memorial. The National Park Service dedicated Phase One of the project, and commemorated the 10th Anniversary of Sept. 11. However, this $62

million dollar project is still millions of dollars short of its goal. The Flight 93 National Memorial is the only 9-11 memorial Congress has designated as a national park. It’s also the only one on a rural site, hundreds of miles away from ground zero and The Pentagon. Our rural communities are the heart of America and Monsanto and the Monsanto Fund are working hard to give back to organizations who reach out to help others, through programs like America’s Farmers Grow Communities and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education. This is another rural America cause we are proud to support.

hit by Hurricane Irene. “Temporary housing units are for people who need a place to stay, with utilities, while they repair their damaged homes,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Philip E. Parr. “Our goal is to help people repair their homes as quickly as possible. The temporary housing units meet shortterm housing needs, while flood survivors make repairs.” “We will work one-on-one with people to help them recover from this severe flooding,” said Andrew X. Feeney, Director of the New York State Office of Emergency Management and State Coordinating Officer. “I want to thank FEMA for working to get these temporary housing units in place,” said Congressman Paul Tonko. “These units will assist those hardest hit by the flooding, making certain they have living arrangements while they move forward with assessing and repairing the damage to their homes.” Available rental units on the open market within a reasonable distance are the primary option for temporary housing. The FEMA temporary housing units are another option. The temporary housing units will be shipped to a federal staging area in Cobleskill and then moved to a private home site or a commercial site. FEMA housing experts will call people whose homes or rental units were destroyed or severely damaged in the flooding, and who have registered with FEMA, to assess their temporary housing needs on a case-by-case basis. FEMA will discuss with flood survivors whether a temporary housing

unit is the best option or if rental units are available within a reasonable distance. The site must be clear of debris and utility hook-ups must be readily available. A site inspector will look at the property to make sure it is suitable for a temporary housing unit. After the site is approved, the temporary housing unit will be delivered and set up. Once the unit is ready, FEMA will schedule an occupancy date with the homeowner or renter. FEMA does not charge rent for the temporary housing unit, however applicants must pay all utilities. While living in the housing unit, residents can actively pursue making home repairs so they can return to their home as soon as possible. To register with FEMA, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. Phone lines are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week until further notice. People with hearing disabilities can use the TTY number, 800-462-7585. Applicants can also register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or with any web-enabled mobile device or smartphone at m.fema.gov. Follow the link to “apply online for federal assistance.”

Part 2: Promoting beef as what’s for dinner You might remember seeing the television commercials with actor James Garner touting beef as “Real Food for Real People” back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, or Robert Mitchum kicking off the “Beef. It’s What’s

for Dinner” campaign in May of 1992. After a brief stint with a “Beef. It’s What You Want” slogan in 1988, the checkoff returned to “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” in 1999, but this time featuring the deep,

powerful voice of cowboy actor Sam Elliott for nearly a decade. And that brings us to the checkoff’s latest radio ads, which have tantalized taste buds for beef since 2007 with a sultry recognizable voice reminding consumers that beef is not only good tasting — but good for them. Yes, beef is still what’s for dinner. And these efforts to keep it that way

over the years are thanks to your investment in the national Beef Checkoff Program, which is wrapping up its 25th year in operation on behalf of the cattle ranchers, farmers and importers who pay into the program nationwide. In this second part of a six-part series celebrating the beef checkoff’s silver anniversary, we’re focusing on the historical

accomplishments of your checkoff investment into beef promotion. Consumer Advertising The launch of the checkoff’s $21.7 million beef promotion campaign at the start of the national checkoff program in the fall of 1986 marked the largest concentrated promotion campaign that the beef industry has ever launched — even to date. And it’s still the only national self-help program that the industry has operating on its behalf. Since the early days of the checkoff, however, “promotion” programs funded through the beef checkoff have included far more than consumer advertising — with things like foodservice and retail promotions and partnerships, as well as new product initiatives and veal promotions. But consumer advertising remains an important anchor in the overall strategy to increase consumer demand for beef. And the success level of the “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” campaign and its predecessors has

been tremendous, according to industry standards. For example, consumer recognition of the beef industry slogan has reached as high as 86 percent during its run — a level that any number of huge corporations with budgets exponentially larger than the checkoff would be pleased to boast. With its recognition and creative television, radio and print commercials over the years, the checkoff’s promotion campaign helped first slow the decline, and later turn around consumer beef demand, which had been spiraling sharply downward in the 1980s. As the industry changed over time — and other checkoff program areas focused on helping cattlemen improve the quality and consistency of the product they offered to fickle American consumers, so too did the focus of the promotion campaigns. Amid today’s health-conscious consumer population, the checkoff is proud to boast that 29 cuts of beef qualify as lean — a quality that market research identifies as near or at the top of consumers’ list of demands from beef they purchase today. The checkoff advertising campaign focuses on that, as well as other consumer demands, like convenience and, always, great taste. As checkoff expenses have increased dramatically while revenues have not, the producer leaders who serve on the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and state beef councils have worked diligently to leverage every dollar to the fullest extent possible. In fact, the latest comprehensive econometric model identifying the value of a cattleman’s checkoff dollar indicates that producers get a return of $5.55 for every dollar invested. (Remember, the checkoff cannot single-handedly turn around a bad market, so even at times when the market may not be as strong as producers would hope, this indicates that their dollar-per-head investments certainly are making things significantly better than they would be without the checkoff. That’s an important concept to understand when

it comes to measuring the checkoff’s results.) Other Key Promotions The list of promotion program achievements funded by the beef checkoff goes on and on. But let’s go beyond advertising and take a look at some of the key promotional accomplishments of your Beef Checkoff Program during its first 25 years: • Based on important muscle-profiling research that the checkoff completed near the turn of the century, the checkoff launched Beef Value Cuts into the marketplace, giving consumers increased choices for steaks and roasts

from single muscles in the chuck and round. These cuts — including the flat iron steak, petite tender and ranch cut from the shoulder clod, the sirloin tip from the knuckle and the Western griller from the bottom round — increased the value of the chuck and round by creating steaks and roasts with quality taste, tenderness and price points that consumers were seeking. Now selling at the rate of 15 million to 20 million pounds a year, Beef Value Cuts have been a big hit with consumers, some available in tens of thousands of restaurants and supermarkets

nationwide, as the checkoff continuously works on promotion of these and other new cuts. In 2010, for example, the checkoff introduced six more new cuts from the beef round – including the Santa Fe Cut, the Round Petite Tender, the San Antonio Steak; the Tucson Cut, the Braison Cut, and the Merlot Cut — in options suitable for retail and foodservice sectors. • Foodservice partnerships have garnered as much as $60 in promotions from restaurant and other foodservice companies for every dollar invested in the same promotion by the check-

off. While that number varies from year to year — though always remains at a ratio strongly in favor of the checkoff program — the foodservice sector of the industry clearly sees value in working directly with cattle producers to deliver your quality product to consumers — and it’s putting its money where its mouth is. The checkoff also supports an award-winning foodservice marketing campaign, known as BEEFlexible, which dishes up new ideas for chefs and restaurant operators looking to offer creative beef items that attract consumer attention.

• Just having a good product isn’t enough. You have to get that product to consumers when, how, and in the form they both desire and understand. That’s where the checkoff’s Beef Made Easy program and other training sessions, promotional materials, and partnerships have stepped in. They have helped retailers improve their beef merchandising strategies to present a growing number of beef items to their meat and freezer cases in a way that is attractive and meaningful to buyers. • After developing a Long Range Plan for veal promotion, the checkoff

has worked with major restaurant chains to get veal added to their menus, especially in the last few years. During the last 18 months, for example, 14 restaurant chains have added veal to their menus, thanks to checkoff partnerships and promotions. Even this short list makes it clear that cattle producers and importers who volunteer to make decisions about how to spend their and your checkoff dollars are resourceful. So the next time someone asks you, ‘What has the checkoff done for me lately?’, you can start with an overview of its 25 years of PROMOTION accomplishments.

NTTC offers free tank truck rollover prevention video with spanish subtitles “National Tank Truck Carriers is pleased to offer free access to the Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention video that they developed with the U.S. Department of Transportation with Spanish subtitles added,” NTTC Chairman Greg Hodgen, Groendyke Transport, has announced. “While it is a requirement that a tank truck driver be able to speak English, we believe that there is a real safety benefit to providing training in the person’s native language. Rollovers happen around the world and we hope that this video also will be used in Spanish speaking countries.” The video focuses on the causes of tank truck rollovers and what actions the driver can take to prevent rollovers. It features tank truck equipment and comments from professional tank truck drivers. Thousands of copies of the original video have been distributed throughout North America and the video can be downloaded from Department of Transportation Web sites or from the NTTC Web site. To view the rollover prevention video with Spanish subtitles, visit the National Tank Truck Carriers Web site at www.tanktruck.org and click on ‘news and links.’ There also is a link to the original video on the Web site. Contact NTTC for a free copy of the video that can be reproduced. “Safety is the key component of NTTC’s mission and we are happy to make this video available at no cost to anyone it might benefit,” said Hodgen.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You World Egg Day Recipes The entire globe celebrates World Egg Day on the second Friday in October. This year’s celebration, on Oct. 14, means countless countries pay homage to all the attributes of The incredible edible egg™ in activities ranging from festivals to celebrity chef cook-offs to recipe promotions, egg hunts and beyond. And there is a lot to celebrate — 70 calories, varying amounts of 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein-at only 15¢ per serving! America’s egg farmers also celebrate the eggscellent benefits of eggs all year long and help those in need by donating eggs to food banks across the country throughout the year. Through the Good Egg Project, America’s egg farmers donate more than 12 million eggs a year to food banks. Eggs’ high-quality protein, which contains all the essential amino acids, goes a long way in feeding the hungry. Studies suggest eating a protein rich meal, like that in eggs, helps keep you feeling full longer. Couple that with being versatile and convenient, this high quality protein source has food banks around the world applauding farmers and The incredible edible egg™ for their efforts to feed the hungry. The versatility of eggs also helps translate mundane meals into flavorful can’t-get-enough-of dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Need another reason to celebrate World Egg Day? Recent studies by the USDA have determined that eggs are a good source of vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, which bodies need to stay healthy. One egg provides 10 percent of the Daily Recommended Value (DRV) of vitamin D and 23 percent of the DRV of choline. Choline, another essential nutrient important for normal brain function, is found mostly in the egg yolk. This is why it’s important to eat the whole egg, yolk and all!

Try this dairy recipe by Sarah Gerow, Lewis County Dairy Princess Recently I attended the 7th annual Cream Cheese festival where we sold merchandise and watched the public milk Miss EZ Squeeze (The Cow). It is amazing the amount of people that come out to support the community. I didn’t realize how many things can be made with cream cheese. Thanks to Kraft for inviting us and letting us participate in this huge event. I will be attending the annual ADADC meeting Oct. 13 at the Copenhagen fire hall. All farmers are welcome. Hope to see you there! Learn how your check off dollars are being spent. The Lewis County Princess program is made possible through the support of American Dairy Association and Dairy Council — the local planning and management organization funded by the dairy farmer check off dollars. Dairy Fact: It takes 10 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of cheese.

Answer to last week’s puzzle


Hard work, studying and practice paid off for five youth from Fulton and Montgomery Counties who traveled to the New York State Fair in Syracuse in August to compete in the New York State 4-H Dairy Cattle Judging Contest. The contest is divided into three divisions based on experience. The Novice Division is for first time judges, the Junior Division is for participants who are not experienced enough to give “oral reasons” before a judging panel, and the Senior

Division is for youth who are ready to compete at a higher level and give oral reasons when judging. Youth in Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program participated in both the Junior and Senior Division this year. In the Junior Division, Ashley Oeser, Sprakers, placed 12th in individual standings and was the only Junior participant. In the Senior Division, the Fulton & Montgomery Counties Team placed first in the New York State. For the first time in several years, all four

members of the Senior Division Team placed in the top 30, being invited back for a second day of judging. Individual placing for the first day of judging were as follows: Danielle Bartlett, Broadalbin, placed 7th, Clyde Sammons, Johnstown, placed 8th, Marybeth Shults, Canajoharie, placed 19th, and Erika Gogis, Pattersonville, placed 23rd. Three of the four team members returned for the second day of judging, from which the New York State teams are

selected for further regional and national contests. Danielle Bartlett was selected for the New York State 4-H Dairy Cattle Judging Team. She will head to Louisville, KY for the Invitational 4-H Judging Contest held at the NAILE. Thanks go out to Team Coach Rebecca Ferry and Assistant Coach Martin Kelly for all the time and hard work they dedicated to the 4-H Dairy Judging Program in Fulton and Montgomery Counties. For more information on how to be involved

Susquehanna County 4-H Horse Judging Team places first at 2011 State Achievement Days The horse judging team consists of Stephanie Koloski, Katelyn Kveragas, Nathan Moyer, and Samantha Turner and is coached by 4-H Leader and 4-H summer assistant Kelli Agler. Kelli brought the team together in early summer, which began the many practices and hard work of learning to judge classes, practice giving reasons, and learn the rules of horse judging contest. The team worked very hard and went on to compete at State Days where they won the Horse Judging Contest as a team. This advances the team on to two national level competitions, being the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio, and the Eastern National Horse Roundup in Louisville, KY. Through sponsors and fundraising, the team plans to attend both contests. Best of luck to the Susquehanna County Horse Judging Team 2011. Also, the Susquehanna County Senior

Shotgun Team placed fourth in the state. The senior team consisted of: Christopher Jordan, Anthony Whitney, Allison Kiefer and Matthew Coy. Christopher Jordan placed third in the senior division with his individual score of 45 out of 50 targets. This qualifies Christopher to go to the 2012 4-H Shooting Sports Invitational in Grand Island, NE, in June of 2012. Chris will be attending this national event. There were also two junior age shooters from Susquehanna County who participated in State Achievement Days: Zach VanWinkle and Callie Curley. Zach’s score of a 48 out of 50 targets actually placed him First in the junior division and second overall both senior and junior shooters. Also taking part in 4-H Fashion Revue at State Achievement Days was Olivia Everitt and Theresa Staats. Congratulations to all who took part.

Issued Sept 30, 2011 Farm gate milk prices are heading down. The Agriculture Department announced the September Federal order Class III milk price at $19.07 per hundredweight (cwt.), down $2.60 from August, but still $2.81 above September 2010, and equates to about $1.64 per gallon. That pulls the 2011 Class III average to $18.28, up from $14.07 at this time a year ago and $10.49 in 2009. Class III futures settled Friday as follows: October $17.44, November $16.41, and December at $16.35. Looking “back to the futures” now combined with the announced Class III prices, the Federal order Class III contract’s average for the last half of 2011 was at $19.63 on September 2, $19.36 on September 9, $19.49 on September 16, $19.21 on September

23, and $18.72 on September 29. The September Class IV price is $19.53, down 61 cents from August, but $2.77 above a year ago. California’s comparable September 4a and 4b prices are scheduled to be announced October 3. The four week NASSsurveyed cheese price averaged $1.8592 per pound, down 28.1 cents from August. Butter averaged $1.9886, down 8.1 cents. Nonfat dry milk averaged $1.5439, down 3 cents, and dry whey averaged 59.26 cents, up 2.4 cents. Cash cheese lost a little more ground the last week in September

Mielke from B1 rels averaged $1.7694, down 1.2 cents. FC Stone dairy broker Dave Kurzawski wrote in his September 26 Insider Opening Bell that, “As long as domestic spot cheese prices stay in the $1.70 range with international prices about a dime higher, export demand isn’t likely to change enough to lift domestic prices.” The CME’s Daily Dairy Report says USDA confirmed the slowdown in cheese usage this summer, reporting that disappearance of American cheese was down 1.9 percent from 2010 in the May-July period and down 9.6 percent in July alone. Growth in butter movement slowed as well, due to a decline in exports. Overall butter disappearance was up 2.7 percent in May-July; domestic use was up 4.1 percent, while exports were down 8.7 percent, according to USDA numbers. The cash butter market closed September 30

at $1.76, down a penny on the week, and 47 1/2cents below a year ago when it peaked for 2010 at $2.2350. Only four cars were sold this week. NASS butter averaged $1.8911, down 4.8 cents. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk held all week at $1.49, while the Extra Grade remained at $1.58. NASS powder closed at $1.5413, up a half-cent, and dry whey averaged 60.04 cents, up a penny. In other milk price news, looking “back to the futures” combined with the announced Class III prices for July and August, the Federal order Class III contract’s average for the last half of 2011 was at $19.75 on August 5, $19.42 on August 12, $19.18 on August 19, $19.36 on August 26, $19.63 on September 2, $19.36 on September 9, $19.49 on September 16, $19.21 on September 23, and was close to $18.80 at our deadline on September 29.

Milk production across the country is settling into fall trends, according to USDA’s weekly update. Weather patterns and temperatures are basically conducive to late season milk output, although milk volumes are declining to the point that balancing plants and surplus operations are greatly reducing processing schedules. Schools are now back in session, thus the school bottling pipeline is full and milk volumes are less stressed to maintain capacities.

The fall harvest is well underway in many regions of the country for corn silage, although many corn and soybean fields still need drying time before combining. In some northern areas, a killing frost recently occurred which came earlier than crops in the region were ready for. Speculation is that the frost will reduce yields and crop maturity will be challenged. Cream markets are unsettled as cream volumes build and buyers are hesitant to purchase. The sharp drops in daily

pricing and falling weekly price averages of CME butter, are affecting the basing points used for most cream sales. Cream buyers are negotiating for the lowest basing point. As pricing multiples and basing prices continue to fluctuate, butter producers are very cautious with their additional cream purchases and churning schedules. Butter producers are often limiting their cream purchases to contractual commitments. Class II cream demand has eased as ice cream production

declines seasonally, although other cream based product production (cream cheese, sour cream, and bottled cream) is seasonally active, according to USDA. Farm profitability declined in September, according to the USDA’s latest Ag Prices report issued September 29. The September All-Milk price was estimated at $20.90 per cwt., down $1.10 from the August record high. The cost of feed to produce 100 pounds of milk

from several major dairy states and he urged dairy farmers to contact their elected officials to encourage their support. Kozak said the Congressional budget Office has scored the legislation and stated the measure would reduce government expenditures by $167 billion over the next five years and $131 billion over 10 years, based on a 60 percent enrollment of U.S. milk in FFTF’s supply management program. The bill has been referred to the House Ag Committee. Meanwhile, National

Milk’s Cooperatives Working Together program (CWT.) accepted 12 requests for export assistance this week from Darigold, Dairy Farmers of America, and United Dairymen of Arizona to sell a total of 6.78 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East. The product will be delivered October through March and raised CWT’s 2011 cheese exports to 72.3 million pounds to 20 countries, the equivalent of 723 million pounds of milk.

Speaking of the CWT; Dairy Profit Weekly (DPW) reports that a law firm representing two consumers, a school and an animal advocacy group, filed a lawsuit against several dairy organizations, alleging the dairy groups used the CWT program to “fix” milk prices. Hagens Berman, on behalf of consumers, including Compassion Over Killing (COK) members, filed a class-action lawsuit that various dairy companies and trade groups, including National Milk, Dairy

Farmers of America (DFA), Land O’Lakes, Inc. and Agri-Mark, Inc. formed CWT in order to fix the price of milk in the U.S. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on September 26, 2011, alleges that between 2003 and 2010, more than 500,000 cows were slaughtered under CWT’s dairy herd retirement program. The complaint alleges the program was a con-

Don’t ignore signs of disaster-related stress ALBANY, NY — New York residents facing the loss of homes, businesses or cherished possessions in the wake of Hurricane Irene may find themselves struggling to cope with the emotional impact of disaster. Local, state and federal officials are urging those survivors to be aware of the signs of emotional stress and to seek out help if they are feeling overwhelmed. Everyone who lives through a disaster is affected by it in some way. It is normal to feel anxious about your own safety and that of family and friends. Profound sadness, grief, and anger are normal reactions to an abnormal event, and acknowledging such feelings is a first step toward healing. Everyone has different ways of coping, but remember that seeking or accepting help from community counseling programs is healthy and worthwhile. The following signs may indicate the need for crisis counseling or stress management assistance: • Difficulty communicating or sleeping. • Depression, sadness or feelings of hopelessness. • Increased use of drugs and/or alcohol. • Limited attention span, poor performance at work or school. • Headaches/stomach problems, flu-like symptoms, disorientation or confusion.

• Reluctance to leave home. • Mood-swings, frequent bouts of crying. • Overwhelming feelings of guilt and self-doubt. The following are ways to ease disasterrelated stress: • Talk with someone about your feelings of anger or sorrow. • Seek help from professional counselors. • Take steps to promote your own physical and emotional healing by healthy eating, rest, exercise, relaxation, and meditation. • Maintain as normal a family or daily routine as possible. • Use existing support groups of family, friends, and religious institutions. • Ensure you are ready for future events by restocking your family disaster plan disaster supplies kits and updating your family disaster plan. Taking such positive steps can be comforting. Children can be particularly affected by disaster-related emotional stress. Regardless of your child’s age, remember to: • Set an example of calm, even though you may feel stressed. If you feel unable to control your emotions, seek out help and support from family or professionals. • Keep routines as consistent as possible and answer questions openly and honestly at a level

The beef checkoff’s nutrition communications program helps motivate health professionals to recommend beef because they recognize that Americans need to eat beef and can eat beef every day to live strong and be strong. The program provides nutrition leaders with the reasons to believe in beef’s contribution to improving health since nearly half of Americans say they are trying to consume more protein, and more than three-quarters of Americans reportedly change the types of food and/or food components to improve the healthfulness of their diet. That’s why each fall, your beef checkoff attends the American Dietetic Association’s (ADA) annual meeting — the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts — where more than 6,000 registered dietitians, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, health-

care providers and industry leaders address key issues affecting the health of all Americans. This year’s annual Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) featured more than 100 research and educational presentations, lectures, debates, panel discussions and culinary demonstrations. More than 350 exhibitors, including your beef checkoff, showcased healthy foods and nutrition education materials. “When I started doing beef promotion in 1994, I gave out beef samples in a grocery store, and consumers refused to take them because their doctors told them they can’t eat red meat. Now, I see the American Heart Association logo or seal on packages of lean beef. That is a huge step in educating nutritionists and dietitians,” said Jeanne Harland, a beef producer from Illinois and vice chairman of the beef

checkoff’s Joint Nutrition and Health Committee. “That mindset is changed by attending shows like ADA and the work that our state and national partners do with influencers,” she added. “It’s all about education and showing these nutrition leaders sound checkoff research to base their decisions on. It’s exciting to see actual results.” This year, the beef checkoff also supported a session titled, “Interpreting Epidemiology: Another New Study… Now What Do I Say?” Sixtyfour percent of consumers cite too much conflicting information about which foods are healthy as a roadblock to healthful eating. Registered dietitians need to be able to interpret the most current research for their clients, organizations and the media succinctly and clearly. This session provided concrete examples of how to review epidemiological research and create one or two sentences that puts the research in perspective. “Most of the questions we received

centered around how the lean cuts of beef fit into a weight-loss program,” said Bill Brandenberg, a beef producer from California who met with conference participants at the beef checkoff booth. “As a cattle feeder from the Imperial Valley, it was good for attendees to see a producer face sharing the message about how beef is high in protein, low in fat, and a low-calorie option at mealtime. The younger generation has a lot more concerns about the safety of food and antibiotic use, but they were open-minded and asked great questions.” In addition, the checkoff’s presence at the trade show included recipe demonstrations and samples, a resource CD, educational materials, “Beef Nutrition IQ and You” challenge and giveaways of the checkoff-funded Healthy Beef Cookbook.

2011 National FFA Convention to be televised live on internet Broadcast will also be live to all mobile phones In a significant technological move forward for agriculture, the National FFA Organization will stream its 2011 National Convention in Indianapolis Oct. 19-22 live online via the newly launched Alltech Ag Network on iHigh.com. The televised convention will be accessible real time via computers, iPads and all iPhone, Android and BlackBerry mobile devices. As FFA membership stands at more than a half-million students throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, iHigh.com expects this to be their largest telecast ever. Yet the significance of the convention broadcast goes beyond record-breaking metrics. “Agriculture is taking the lead in communications, moving high tech to engage the world in its story,” said Billy Frey, general manager of the Alltech Ag Network. “iHigh.com’s unique platform enables it to, for example, on a recent Friday night, broadcast more than 170 high school football games simultaneously and live to mobile devices free of charge. This is a capability far beyond many major sports organizations and applications. FFA is now harnessing this power, broadening its reach at a time when our growing population is moving increasingly far away from the stories of the farm and the origins of their food.” iHigh.com, the Global Youth Network, is designed to provide free feature-rich Web services to schools, students and youth organizations, and enables live streaming of events, mobile broadcasting, unlimited photo uploads and more. Using iHigh.com’s unique feature-rich Web and broad-

cast platform, high schools and organizations such as the National High School Rodeo Association, U.S. Pony Club, USA Swimming, the Bass Federation, BMX tracks, AAU and many others are able to share their events in real time with a global audience that can access the streaming video on any computer or mobile device. Currently, iHigh receives 1.3 million unique visitors per month with a growth of 30 percent just within the last 30 days. “iHigh.com is a true supporter of FFA and exemplifies this by providing the means to take our convention message to tens of thousands of FFA members throughout the country and beyond who aren’t able to attend the event,” said National FFA Organization CEO Dwight Armstrong. “This is a major opportunity for FFA and we are extremely grateful for iHigh.com’s expertise, resources and abilities to reach our membership in a new and meaningful way.” “I am so pleased that one of the premier youth organizations in the United States, the FFA, has chosen to use the Alltech Ag Channel on iHigh.com to reach their audience in this everchanging world of technology,” said Jim Host, CEO of iHigh.com. The broadcast schedule for the 2011 FFA National Convention is as follows (times are listed in EST): • I Believe – Opening Session at Conseco Fieldhouse – Oct. 19, 7:15 p.m. • I Believe in Action – Second Session at Conseco Fieldhouse – Oct. 20, 2 p.m. • I Believe in... – Third Session at Conseco Fieldhouse – Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m. • I Believe in Service – Fourth Session at Conseco Fieldhouse – Oct. 21,

EDEN — Extension Disaster Education Network With the flood cleanup stage well underway some flood victims are finding discarding items, particularly those with sentimental value, can be difficult. However, keeping certain items soaked by water may be unhealthy. Some materials tend to absorb and keep water more than others. As a general rule, materials that are wet and cannot be thoroughly cleaned and dried may have to be discarded because they can remain a source of bacteria and mold growth.

Homes with all porous items removed may begin to develop mold growth. This is especially the case for homes that have been exposed to water and moisture for long periods. People can experience health effects when exposed to mold even if it is dead. Killing it by applying a biocide such as chlorine bleach does not minimize health risks, so it must be removed. Anyone spending more than a brief time cleaning in a moldy environment should use a HEPA filter or N95 rated mask; typically it will have two straps.

Allow the solution to dry naturally 6 to 8 hours. The area must be well ventilated since bleach fumes may cause lung irritation. Never mix bleach and ammonia. Non-bleach products called biocides will also kill mold. These biocides have Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration numbers on the bottle and instructions for the intended application. Be sure to follow local recommendations from County, State and FEMA officials.

Using gloves is also highly recommended. Porous materials should be thrown out or completely decontaminated if they are moldy. Materials such as hard plastic, glass and metal can be cleaned. Remove the mold from non-porous materials using a soap or detergent. Disinfect structural members that have been cleaned by applying a solution of 1 cup chlorine bleach per 1 gallon water or follow manufacturer’s recommendations. The surface should be thoroughly wetted with the solution. Keep the surface wet with the bleach solution for 10 to 15 minutes to kill the mold.

Storm relief appliance rebate program update Residents who lost appliances or heating equipment in Hurricane Irene or Tropical Storm Lee may be eligible for both FEMA and NYSERDA Awards Funding is still available through New York State’s Storm Relief Appliance Rebate Program, according to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). In addition, if the FEMA or insurance award does not cover the entire cost of the replacement of eligible appliances or equipment, residents can apply for the NYSERDA rebate, as long as the two payments together do not exceed the cost of the replacement. The rebate program is for residents impacted by Hurricane Irene or Tropical Storm Lee and includes ENERGY STAR® refrigerators, clothes washers, dehumidifiers, furnaces, boilers, gas hot water heaters, and heat pump water heaters as well as higher efficiency clothes dryers with moisture sensors and electric hot water heaters. As of 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 26, rebates have been allocated for 808 refrigerators, 1,645 clothes washers, 1,456 clothes dryers, 1,307 dehumidifiers, 697 hot water heaters (gas, electric and heat pump), 441 furnaces, 346 boilers. The $8 million rebate program started on Monday, Sept. 19, and more than $4.0 million is still available. All rebates will be awarded on a firstcome, first-served basis for completed applications. Applications are available at www.NYSApplianceRebates.com or by calling 877-NYSMART (877-697-6278). The rebate program will continue until funding runs out. The Storm Relief Appliance Rebate Program was created to meet unmet financial needs for the most critical appliances or equipment damaged during the recent storms. ENERGY STAR or higher efficiency appliances and equipment may cost more to purchase but will provide energy savings for the life of the appliance. Residents statewide in affected areas are eligible and must affirm that they have been impacted by Hurricane Irene or Tropical Storm Lee. For residents af-

fected by Hurricane Irene, rebates on purchases of approved appliances and equipment will be retroactive to Aug. 29, 2011, and for residents affected by Tropical Storm Lee, rebates will be retroactive to Sept. 9, 2011. Purchases of appliances and equipment, with the exception of dehumidifiers, must be for replacement purposes only. Audits to verify in-

surance claims and/or FEMA assistance may be conducted. Funding for the Storm Relief Appliance Rebate is provided from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) State Energy Program (SEP). The State Energy Program provides grants to states and directs funding to State Energy Offices from technology programs in DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renew-

able Energy. States use grants to address their energy priorities and to adopt emerging renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. SEP is distributing $3.1 billion of funding to the states and U.S. territories under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. NYSERDA, a public benefit corporation, offers objective information and analysis, inno-

vative programs, technical expertise, and funding to help New Yorkers increase energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. NYSERDA professionals work to protect our environment and create clean-energy jobs. NYSERDA has been developing partnerships to advance innovative energy solutions in New York since 1975.

Modern beef production is “green” Efficient cattlemen and women are a boon for the environment. “I am absolutely not anti-grass-fed beef. There is a place for every single kind of system: grass-fed, grain-fed, local, organic and so on,” said Jude Capper, Washington State University animal scientist at the Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) Annual Conference. “What I am ‘anti’ is mismarketing and the perceptions that are passed on to the consumer about what is and isn’t environmentally friendly.” From farm publications and the Wall Street Journal to Cosmopolitan and mainstream women’s magazines, there is a constant stream of information about water, land and resource use. Beef is often held under the microscope, Capper told the crowd of more than 500 who gathered at the event in Sunriver, OR. “In every part of the world we’re going to face the issues of feeding more people on less land with fewer resources,” she said, citing estimates that by 2050 worldwide population will increase by 50 percent and we’ll need 70 percent more food to support that. “On a global basis people are going to have greater incomes,” Capper said. “As people have more money they want more meat, more milk, more eggs.” Today’s conversations

about sustainability are well founded, she said, but some of the proposed solutions are not. Take “Meatless Mondays” for example. “Even if we all went meatless every Monday, if we only ate lentils and tofu and magically didn’t give off any methane ourselves, it’s going to cut our national carbon footprint by less than half a percent,” Capper said. And then there are important considerations, like where would animal byproducts like leather, tallow and pharmaceuticals come from? Instead, Capper suggested one proven method for reducing resource use: increase efficiency. “If we can have our animals on the planet for fewer days before they’re harvested, in total we use less energy, less land and less water per unit of beef,” she said, pointing to examples over the years. In 1977 it took five animals to produce the same pounds beef that it takes four animals to produce today. “Beef yield over that time has gone up fairly consistently,” she said, noting carcasses can’t keep getting bigger because of consumer acceptance and processing challenges. “What we can do is improve productivity, improve growth rate.” The efficiency gains from 1977 to 2010 amount to a 19-percentage-point reduction in

Mielke from B10 certed effort to reduce the supply of milk and inflate prices nationally. The increased price allowed CWT members to earn more than $9 billion in additional revenue, according to the complaint. DPW editor Dave Natzke reported in Friday’s DairyLine that, if the lawsuit moves forward, the suit seeks establishment of a class representing milk consumers, and seeks financial damages on their behalf for dairy products purchased since 2004. Jim Tillison, CWT chief operating officer, defended the program, saying it was a self-help initiative to assist family dairy farmers and dairy cooperatives who were losing money producing milk, Natzke reported. Tillison said the program was designed and operated consistent with U.S. anti-trust laws, the lawsuit was without merit, and that National Milk would vigorously

defend its actions. Finally, a salute to World Dairy Expo in Madison which I will be attending for the 26th or 27th time, but who is keeping track. It’s a great show, enjoyable and educational.

feed use, a 12-point decrease in water needed and a 33-point drop in land required per pound (lb.) of beef. “That’s not because ranchers and feedlot operators have implemented specific environmental technologies,” Capper said. “It’s because they’ve been doing what they do best, to improve productivity.” Yet that story hasn’t caught on. “The consumer often hears that grass-fed must be best,” she said. Capper and her research team analyzed and compared the environmental impact of three beef production systems: conventional, natural and grass-fed. Looking at conventional, with its growth-enhancing technologies like

implants and ionophores, versus natural production, cattle in the latter system take more days to finish. “Animals that grow faster and weigh more cut the environmental impact,” she said. That’s magnified when comparing conventional to grassfed, as average days from birth to harvest increase by 226 and carcass weights drop by 185 lb. “To convert to an entirely grass-fed system, we’d need to more than double the number of the cows in the U.S. today just to maintain beef supply,” Capper said. Land use would increase by 131 million acres, equivalent to 75 percent of the area of Texas, and water use would skyrocket by 468 billion gallons.

Capper showed several highly publicized studies containing suspect assumptions about the modern beef industry. “This is very dangerous because it’s put out there as fact in an international science magazine,” she said of one example. “Potentially, it turns consumers away from beef.” Ranchers, stockers and feeders need to keep getting better, and talking about it. Reducing mortality and morbidity is one step. “It’s important to keep having healthier animals. They’re going to gain better and grow faster,” she said. Reproduction is another. “Only about 86 percent of cows have a live calf every year. If that was 90 percent, 95 percent or 99

percent, that would make a huge improvement in productivity,” Capper said. “If we improve our land, better grasses, better feed, those animals are going to grow faster.” Good news is found in a recent study showing 94 percent of worldwide consumers either support or are neutral toward the use of technology in food production. “Most consumers just want affordable, safe, nutritious food that tastes good,” she said.

ensuring farmers a fair price, not exporting foods to people they may not want or that would destroy their own markets.” The Economic Policy Institute’s research revealed that 700,000 U.S. jobs have been lost or displaced since 1994 as a result of the trade deficit with Mexico. Additionally, EPI estimates that free trade agreements with Colombia and South Korea alone will likely increase the U.S. trade deficit by $16.8 billion and eliminate or displace another 214,000 U.S. jobs. Such trade agreements are an economic disaster that will only deepen the current recession. When Mexico devalued the peso by 50 percent after NAFTA’s implementation, the projected benefits for thousands of Mexican producers were eliminated. NFFC president Ben Burkett added, “Many Korean, Colombian and Panamanian producers will lose their livelihoods and land, so we’ll hurt our allies, as well.” Furthermore, the Tax Information Exchange Agreement between the

U.S. and Panama may not be enough to curb Panama’s position as one of the world’s major tax havens. This FTA could deprive the U.S. government of much-needed revenue and saddle other sectors of the economy, such as agriculture, with a disproportionate share of the cost-cutting burden. The ability of local producers both here and abroad to feed their families and their communities will be compromised by these misguided trade agreements. Potential labor abuses, trade deficits and displaced jobs will further destabilize rural communities and the food system. NFFC vice-president Dena Hoff, summarized, “The seven principles of food sovereignty, including food as nutrition first and a commodity second, should be the basis of our agricultural system, not the unbridled NAFTAstyle commerce that destroys our communities and environment as gargantuan transnational corporations profit.”

USDA awards $18 million to support beginning farmers The USDA on Sept. 30 announced $18 million in grants to beginning farmers and ranchers at a press conference held in Washington, D.C. USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan highlighted these recent awards that were funded through the 2011 Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP), a competitive grants program administered by USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). BFRDP was first authorized in the 2008 Farm Bill, and over the past three years, has awarded over 100 grants to organizations that provide training and technical assistance to beginning farmers and ranchers. Merrigan stressed the importance of BFRDP in supporting our nation’s beginning farmers, and spoke about the major challenges the country faces in transitioning our workforce to the next generation of people who will work the land. Merrigan cited that the average age of farmers in the U.S. is between 57 and 59, and that the forthcoming census of agriculture being conducted next year, will likely show an increase from the 2007 Census. “BFRDP is just the type of program we need to help beginning farmers succeed so they can create jobs and economic development in our rural communities,” said Adam Warthesen, a policy organizer with the Land Stewardship Project — a non-profit organization based in Minnesota and an NSAC member group — adding that the next slate of beginning farmer and rancher policies and ini-

tiatives are in the works, with the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act of 2011 set for introduction in Congress next month. “As we’ve seen with BFRDP, the demand is strong and the need is there for community based programs that support the next generation of farmers,” said Warthesen. 2011 BFRDP Awards For Fiscal Year 2011, BFRDP projects were awarded in Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Eight of the 36 grants announced were awarded to NSAC member organizations, totaling $4.8 million, and representing over a quarter of total program funding for 2011 includes: Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NJ) — There are currently no beginning farmer programs in the Garden State, yet there is an ever-increasing demand for local, organic produce and an ample amount of preserved farmland. This program will empower New Jersey's new small scale farmers through technical training courses, internship and apprenticeship programs, an incubator farm, and the development of land leases and contracts that can be used by beginning farmers to gain access to land.

tion of New York (NY) — The “Cultivating the Next Crop of Organic Farmers” project will support the next cadre of beginning farmers in every Northeast state by strengthening the support they receive from seven regional organic and sustainable farming organizations. The project's goals include providing a formal apprenticeship and mentoring program, as well as shared learning opportunities such as onfarm workshops, webinars, and conferences to build a strong and supportive generation of new farmers. Stone Barns Center for Food And Agriculture (NY) — Stone Barns is a working farm and education center that addresses the critical need to train young farmers in the Northeast. This award will be used to grow and improve their program that provides workshops, conferences, apprenticeships, on-line resources and mentoring services geared towards the needs of beginning farmers. The project will provide intensive hands-on training for more than 1,200 farmers by 2014 to ensure a better-equipped corps of regional farmers that will be able to supply the region with healthful food. 2012 Request for Applications Earlier this month, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) also released the Request for Applications (RFA) for the next round of BFRDP funding for Fiscal Year 2012. Approximately $19 million will be made available for projects next year. This will be the last round of mandatory funding for BFRDP authorized un-

der the 2008 Farm Bill, and the program will require reauthorization and a dedication of funding in the next Farm Bill. NSAC will be pushing hard to reauthorize this program in the coming Farm Bill, and will advocate for increased mandatory funding in order to meet the incredible demand for the program. BFRDP grant projects address five major priority areas that provide technical and financial assistance to beginning farmers and ranchers, and include: • Production and management strategies to enhance land stewardship by beginning farmers and ranchers; • Business management and decision support strategies that enhance the financial viability of beginning farmers and ranchers; • Marketing strategies that enhance the competitiveness of beginning farmers and ranchers; • Legal strategies that assist beginning farmers with farm or land acquisition and transfer; and • Other Priority Topics to enhance competitiveness and sustainability of beginning farmers and ranchers for the next generation. Additionally, grants may be awarded for educational enhancement team projects that assemble a team of experts to review beginning farmer and rancher curriculum and programs, identify gaps, and develop and disseminate recommendations and materials to address these gaps.
