Building the beef industry with composite cattle by Sally Colby Composite cattle, the planned mating of two pure breeds that have desirable traits to create a new breed, might be part of the answer to revitalizing the beef industry. Dr. Jerry Lipsey, executive vice president of the American Simmental Association, says that the concept of planned crossbreeding isn’t new. “Animals such as chickens, pigs, turkeys have been bred as composites for quite a while, as have crops such as corn, soybeans and wheat,” he said. “We don’t plant purebred corn or wheat, we plant crossbreds.” Lipsey noted that the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Clay Center, Nebraska began testing the science of composite seedstock around 1980. “We’ve become comfortable with the term ‘purebred’, regardless of how that term is defined,” said Lipsey. “Open herd book breeds — such as Charolais, Simmental, Chianina, Gelbvieh and Maine Anjou — typically consider 7/8 blood animals as purebreds. Closed herd book breeds such as Hereford and Angus don’t accept other breeds, which keeps a certain level of predictability in cattle relative to certain traits.” Lipsey, who has a lifetime of experience in the cattle industry, says when the American Simmental Association recognized that purebred seedstock will perhaps become less popular, and composite, or crossbred seedstock may become more popular in the future, they created a division called SimSolutions
so that Simmental owners could breed to other breeds. However, the association found that almost all the composite Simmental cattle are Simmental x Angus. “We realized that it really wasn’t going to be Simmental x Hereford, or Simmental x Shorthorn,” said Lipsey. “It was going to be Simmental x Angus (both black and red). When we recognized that, we trademarked the SimAngus™ name. The overwhelming proportion of all composite crossbred seedstock are SimAngus™ — it is wildly popular across this nation.” The growing popularity of composite cattle such as SimAngus™ is the result of cattle breeders recognizing the value of hybrid vigor. “We get two things with cross-breeding,” said Lipsey. “We get hybrid vigor, or heterosis, which is crucial — it keeps us alive. Heterosis gives us fertility and longevity on the maternal side. The other thing we get with crossbreeding is when two breeds are combined in a smart and wise way, we get the best of both worlds. For example, Charolais x Angus steers or Simmental x Angus steers are extremely popular. They have the best traits of Angus, and the best traits of Charolais or Simmental.” Lipsey says that although any animal that is 7/8 or higher Simmental can be registered as a purebred Simmental, more members are breeding SimAngus™ to SimAngus™ and stopping there. “Breeders often refer to ‘stabilized’ SimAngus™ which means multigenerational SimAngus™ (half to half),” he

The award was presented to Lipsey at the organization’s 43rd annual meeting and research symposium in Bozeman, MT. The Pioneer Award recognizes individuals who have made lasting contributions to the improvement of beef cattle, honoring those who have had a major role in acceptance of performance reporting and documentation as the primary means to make genetic change in beef cattle.

Stockpiling Forages to Extend the Grazing Season on your Organic Dairy by Katie Navarra Purchasing winter feedstock is the biggest expense on any dairy farm. Stockpiling forages can extend the grazing season and cut costs up to 20 percent. Setting aside pastures to grow and accumulate forage for use at a later time extends the grazing season into October, November and December, a time when farmers typically purchase silage or forages for feed. The eOrganic webinar, Stockpiling Forages to Extend the Grazing Season On Your Organic Dairy, led by Laura Paine, an Organic Agriculture Specialist with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture explained how stockpiling forages is beneficial to livestock farms as well as provided strategies for successful stockpiling. Stockpiling to reduce expenses On average hay production costs $70-$90 per ton. When hay is purchased it costs up to $90-$140 per ton. The cost of pasture production on the other hand is close to $14-$40 per ton. “It is always cheaper to let cows do the harvesting,” Paine explained, “the rationale for stockpiling forages is economics.” Farms that stockpile forages strive to even out pasture use throughout the entire year. “Cool grasses spurt 50-60 percent of growth from April to June,” she said. But pasture growth from October to December is also feasible. “Anything to help spread that (growth period) over the year is better,” she said. Nutrients needed The impact of Nitrogen and water is significant on potential yields. “1 to 1.5 tons of dry matter can be produced with-
out Nitrogen or water. 1.8 to 2.7 tons can be produced with Nitrogen fertilizer,” she explained, “and 2 to 2.5 tons can be produced with Nitrogen fertilizer and water by irrigation or natural sources.” The challenge for an organic farm becomes the source of Nitrogen. “Organic Nitrogen sources can include manure, compost and fish based fertilizers,” she explained, “there is no research on the effectiveness of these types of Nitrogen fertilizer and spurt of growth for stockpiling.” Creating an effective nutrient distribution system is also critical. The most useful fertility management technique for stockpiling is to use the animals themselves as manure spreaders. “Moving the herd to a new paddock every 12 hours provides better nutrient distribution,” she noted. Nutrient cycling can be affected by management techniques to provide more uniform distribution. “Feed the herd on the pasture and provide their minerals on the pasture,” she explained, “provide water on pasture and make the paddocks square.” Each of these methods encourages the herd to move around and more evenly spread their manure. “Avoid single trees that always attract animals and lead to a buildup of manure, avoid sharp angles or narrow areas in a pasture and limit the herd’s access to surface water,” she also suggested. Pasture and species selection Tall fescue and orchard grass stand out as the best grasses for stockpiling because they have more growth in the fall compared to other grasses and their upright waxy leaf help it maintain a high quality. “Tall fescue can bring ani-
mal health issues because of endophytes,” Paine pointed out, “there are endophyte free fescue options, but they do not perform as well.” Alfalfa and birdsfoot trefoil are the strongest legume choices. However, these grasses do not hold up as well in stockpiling because of significant leaf loss over the winter. Upright alfalfa performs better compared with grazing alfalfa because the plant can hold itself up under snow and other climatic conditions. Clover species may not be the best option for stockpiling because these grasses lose a lot of leaves and dry matter between short time of frost and when the cattle are actually put on the pasture. Timing The ideal time to begin stockpiling is late summer (August) to allow the grasses time to rest and regrow until the first frost. “Forage mass and quality is maintained by cold, dry weather,” she added. Stockpiling can also be done in the summer, but the quality can be affected by the warmer, humid weather. A study from Western Canada showed that the start date influenced the total yield. “The later you go in the season the less forage accumulation across all species,” Paine said. When stockpiling started July 15th, 2.54 tons per acre of dry matter with 12 percent crude protein and 62.5 percent of digestible protein was produced. However, waiting until Aug. 15th yielded 1.68 ton per acre, with a 14.4 percent crude protein and 67.5 percent digestible protein. “Look at the type of livestock you have and determine if you are going for quality or tonnage,” she suggested.
Land needed Drawing from experiences in her home state of Wisconsin, Paine offered suggestions on the number of acres needed to successfully stockpile forages. “As a rule of thumb approximately two acres per AU (AU=animal unit= 1,000 pounds of animal) for pasture and hay for 12 months,” she said, “assume 3 percent of the animal’s body weight is needed for dry matter intake per day of pasture, likely to be supplemented with silage/grain.” Based on the assumptions above a 1,200 pound cow needs about 36 pounds of dry matter per day or 1,080 pounds per month. A herd of 100 cows weighing 1,200 pounds each would need approximately 54 tons per month. “At 1.2 tons per acre you would need to stockpile 45 acres for one month of grazing,” she said. It can be difficult for farms that buy forage to set aside enough land for stockpiling. However, if the farm is producing forage on its own property, enough land should be available for stockpiling when specific management techniques are implemented. Why stockpile? Stockpiling takes advantage of the second growth period of cool season grasses. With proper management strategies grazing into October, November and December is possible and if implemented can save the farm significantly on expenses. The benefits are not limited to dairies. Other types of livestock operations, including beef and sheep, can benefit too. “With good management and the right conditions it can make a good alterative,” she concluded.
by Tamara Scully NEWTON, NJ — The Brodhecker family has been farming their own 170 acres of land since 1969. Livestock, hay and grain have been — and remain — primary parts of the farming operation, which includes hundreds of acres of rented land in the surrounding area. Service to the farming community, and the community at large, have always been a key component to the operation. While this has not changed, many aspects of doing business have. Tom and Jane Brodhecker raised their six children here, and 4-H and the county fair were always a big part of the farm. Originally a sheep and cattle operation, the Brodheckers bred animals destined to be raised and shown by many 4-Hers in the county. The family itself has always been active in many aspects of agriculture. Son Phil, who was selected as the New Jersey Outstanding Young Farmer of the Year for 2004, and who has dual degrees in Animal Husbandry and Agricultural Economics, as well as having completed the New Jersey Agricultural Leadership Development Program, returned to the farm in 1989. He is now running the farm business in partnership with his parents. Expanding operations “We decided we needed to generate more revenue to support the farm,” Phil Brodhecker said. They decided to focus on direct-marketing to small farm operators by adding an emphasis on farm equipment and specialized feed services for this market. They also began to emphasize and promote their meat products, selling USDA retail cuts directly at the farm, as well as offering traditional freezer shares, to attract local consumers. The farm was already growing its own corn and oats on several hundred acres throughout the region and grinding the crops for their own livestock feed, as well as wholesaling the feed in bulk. They worked with the State to obtain the licensing needed for bagged feed sales. Their storage, processing and distribution facilities are inspected annually, and the rations — of which there are currently 10 separate formulas — are nutritionally tested. They also began to offer sales of equipment and supplies to meet the needs of the farmers who were coming out to purchase the feed. The newest product is their own birdseed, derived from 24 acres of black oil sunflowers, grown right on the farm. They harvest and process the seed, and bag it for retail sales, all of which occur on the farm. More customer-friendly products are planned in the near future, designed to attract non-farmers as well as those involved in farming out to the farm on a regular basis. “Production is one part of farming. Selling your products is the other part,” Brodhecker said. Farm fresh feed The Brodhecker “Farm Fresh” feed line is now bagged and sold directly to other commercial farmers, as well as smaller hobby farmers and those raising animals for 4-H. They do still offer bulk feed sales by the ton as well, Brodhecker said. All the feed is made with their own corn and oats, plus soybean
and minerals. Fresh inventory with rapid turnaround keeps the quality of Brodhecker Farm feed high, as a long shelf life can cause feed to absorb moisture, making it less palatable and potentially altering the nutritional value, Brodhecker said. The consistency of the farm’s product is high, as they use the same “high-quality grains in all of our diets consistently throughout the year.” Feed is ground every two to five days, in smaller batches, meaning inventory is all fresh. The farm has opted out of growing their own soybeans, and purchase it already ground into meal, as the processing of the soybeans would require an investment in different equipment. Additionally, the farm has had wildlife challenges which would make growing and processing the beans on-farm cost-prohibitive at this time, Brodhecker said. Livestock The farm’s cow/calf operation breeds all of their own cattle, which are raised on pasture year-round. Simmentals are the breed of choice here, for their leaner, high-yielding, high-quality meat, Brodhecker said. The herd numbers about 70-90 head on average, with about 15 head/year being processed for meat. The farm has one bull, and the animals are naturally bred. The cow/calf pairs are sequestered from the herd, to check for health issues and proper nursing. The calves are castrated at 30 days old and then returned to the general population on pasture. Many are sold as feeder animals for other local farm operators. Although the cows are fed grain, it is in supplement to the pastures. Grainfeeding helps the cows to finish more quickly, in about 15 months compared to 100 percent grass-fed animals, which typically take 24 months, creating a tougher meat, Brodhecker said. At approximately 14 months, the cows are moved into a separate area for finishing, where their feed ratio is adjusted. But forage is always available, although the animals are not pastured at this stage, due to acreage constraints. “Cows are ruminants; they need grass,” Brodhecker said. “Grain is not a substitute. They still need a high-quality forage,” even if grains are a part of the diet. Service and education While diversifying to serve the small farmettes and hobby farms which are prevalent in Sussex County, the Brodheckers realized that many beginning farmers were lacking in accurate information. Many times, feed customers would come in and complain about equipment issues, or not understand why their poultry wasn’t laying, or their animals were not thriving. Brodhecker decided that one of the value-added services which the farm could offer was the simple relay of information. The “opportunity to educate” has become an everyday service at the farm, where customers can get expert from a farm which has been raising livestock and making their own feed for over 40 years. In addition to the family, the retail staff is highly experienced and knowledgeable and are “extremely integral” to the operation, Brodhecker added, as is the field staff. The farm employees has a half-dozen full-time
employees. The farm has also begun to hold workshops on a variety of topics of interest to small farmers. Brodhecker hopes that customers will recognize the farm as not only a source of feed and
supplies, but as a reliable resource. Offering hands-on experience and accurate information as a part of the Brodhecker Farm experience is another way to build a loyal customer base, Brodhecker said. “We are doing the same thing we were doing years ago, only doing it better,” Brodhecker said.

Opinion: Let’s keep restrictions on Sunday hunting by Carl T. Shaffer, President, Pennsylvania Farm Bureau Farmers across the commonwealth and a mounting number of other Pennsylvanians have been sending a clear message to members of the state Gener-
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau President, Carl Shaffer.
al Assembly: “Don’t expand Sunday hunting.” Most farmers feel strongly about it because we want a day of peace and quiet on Sunday, when we may work less and enjoy more time with our family and friends around the farm. Posting “No Sunday Hunting” on our lands won’t prevent the intrusions. Hunters frequently wander from one property onto another, and while responsible hunters respect private property, landowners know that trespass and poor enforcement is a serious problem that would become even worse. Farmers also hunt and provide sportsmen access to vast amounts of land. While we feed the wildlife, hunters help us control the devastation of crops and the loss of farm income. It has been a good balance of mutual interests. It’s also noteworthy that many hunters do not want the law changed for a variety of reasons. But this is not only about farmers and hunters. More than 12 million other Pennsylvanians, including those living in cities and the suburbs, should be involved with the discussion and decision. Many take to the outdoors of the commonwealth to hike, bike, ride horses or just go there for a family picnic.

Martin Kelly voted as President for Montgomery County Farm Bureau by Elizabeth A. Tomlin At 23 years old, Martin Kelly of Fort Plain may be the youngest Farm Bureau President in New York State. “My role in Agriculture started when I was 9 years old,” Kelly said in a recent interview. “My 4-H leaders, John Kellett, Bud Pickard, and Marianne Friers, planted a seed — to be a voice of agriculture, and it has followed me everywhere I go.” Kelly says that when he “aged out” of 4-H, he became a 4-H educator, coaching the junior dairy bowl and judging team. He has also been involved with many other 4-H activities. “I sit on the 4-H Dairy Task Force Committee and the Farmers Museum Junior Livestock
Dairy Committee,” Kelly said. Kelly graduated in the top of his class from Fort Plain High School in 2006. “I took AP courses and SUNY in our school classes to get a head start on my college endeavors,” Kelly says. “I am the first person in my family to graduate high school and the first to attend and get a degree from college.” Kelly received his Associates Degree in Animal Science, in the spring of 2008. “I took two years off to save money to continue on my educational journey towards my Bachelors degree in Agricultural Biotechnology, with plans on getting into Veterinary School.” While attending school at SUNY

Cobleskill, Kelly was treasurer of the Pre-Vet Club and the American Animal Producers Club, which has the second largest budget behind Student Government. “I was also active in the Dairy Cattle Club and sale chairman of the 2008 Caprine Classic, a registered Dairy Goat sale.” Kelly is currently working on his Bachelors degree in Ag Biotechnology, and he plans on graduating this spring. “I think it’s fair to say that Martin (Kelly) is probably the youngest county Farm Bureau President in New York State,” said John Fidler former President of Montgomery County Farm Bureau. “Martin has been involved with Montgomery County’s FB for the past four years, and has earned the privilege of serving his county as president. He’s been active in the NYFB Young Farmer & Rancher program for the past couple of years and has participated at the State level in Ag discussion forums. As for his involvement at the county level, Martin serves on the Sundae on the Farm committee and plays a vital role in coordinating the event. Martin puts a high priority on membership as well, and that helps build more strength into the organization.” Kelly owns a few dairy cattle, with six milking cows and five heifers. “I raise them to show at local and State level Dairy Shows as well as adopting them out to 4-H to use as their 4-H projects.” He also has a herd of 30 goats, some of which he has for show and others for meat production. In addition to a small flock of sheep, he raises pork and chickens for market. Kelly was elected to the Montgomery
County Farm Bureau Board in 2007. “This experience has provided me with many connections and polished the way to deliver the message of Montgomery County Agriculture. In 2010 Kelly organized “Meet the Candidates Night”, which allowed him to speak with both lawmakers and aspiring lawmakers. “This opened the door to continuing the education process, which allows Montgomery County Farm Bureau to have a closer relationship with our lawmakers in effort to preserve agriculture,” Kelly said. “Because of Farm Bureau, in 2010 I was appointed, by the Montgomery County Board of Supervisors, to sit on the Montgomery County Agriculture Economic Development Committee. Kelly was also elected to the FultonMontgomery County Cornell Cooperative Extension Board last year. According to the New York State Farm Bureau office, while they could not think of anyone younger than 28 being a President, they did say that he was the first College student to be acting President. “Martin is a dedicated and ambitious person who is exceptionally qualified to be Montgomery County’s Farm Bureau President,” attests Montgomery County Agriculture Economic Development Coordinator, Missy S. Potter. “I’ll learn more about my duties when I go to the President’s Conference in November before our first monthly board meeting,” said Kelly. For now his duties include running monthly meetings and “being a voice of Farm Bureau, and representing Montgomery County farmers and all of our members in everything that I do. I look forward to working with everyone.” Kelly will be representing Montgomery County at Lobby Days in Albany.
Opinion from A3 Right now they aren’t startled or troubled by gunfire on Sundays and they don’t feel a need to wear blaze orange outfits worn by hunters. If the current law changes, so will the nature of Sundays in Pennsylvania. Legislation before the General Assembly in Harrisburg would not only repeal current restrictions on Sunday hunting, but also turn future decision-making about it over to the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The Game Commission’s job is to properly manage wildlife populations, not to deal with potential conflicts between segments of our human population. Some advocates of Sunday hunting argue that it is not fair for them to be prevented from hunting on their own land, implying that somehow everyone has the right to do whatever they wish, whenever they want, on their property. The argument ignores the fact that many restrictions or limitations are common on private property and are established for the greater public interest. Many of us likely believe that some of those restrictions are unwarranted or excessive. Most farmers just don’t happen to feel that limits on Sunday hunting are among them, especially since our land borders the property of others. Proponents of a change in the law claim Pennsylvania’s economy will get a boost if it expands Sunday hunting, citing a study commissioned by a committee of
the General Assembly. Pennsylvania Farm Bureau and many others, however, believe the statistics are greatly exaggerated and fail to take into account other considerations. For example, how much revenue and how many jobs will be lost if fewer Pennsylvanians and out-of-state visitors participate in recreational activities (other than hunting) on Sundays? And, the study apparently assumes that resident hunters won’t be contributing to the state’s economy if they are not hunting on Sundays. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Pennsylvania hunters already spend more “days afield” than those of any other state. Among those are 103 days to hunt deer, including 18 Saturdays. Meanwhile, the Game Commission already has the authority to respond to hunters’ requests for more deer hunting opportunities by adding two more days to the rifled deer season and by allowing hunting on the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving, or further extending hunting seasons. The bottom line is that the current law restricting Sunday hunting provides a reasonable balance for farmers, hunters and the millions of other people who enjoy the outdoors of Pennsylvania. Carl Shaffer is a full-time farmer, who grows corn, wheat and green beans on his farm in Columbia County.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Itchy powder season Organic standards require growers not to spray synthetic pesticides to deal with pests. Cultural methods reduce or prevent many common apple problems, but pesticide sprays are sometimes still required. U.S. organic standards, spelled out in the National Organic Program, permit growers to use certain lowtoxicity chemicals without jeopardizing their organic certification. Home growers can also use these pesticides to produce better results. Lets start with copper. According to Ohio State University, copper compounds work well against most apple fungus pests. They stay on the crop for a relatively long period, allowing growers to avoid repeated spraying. Avoid using large quantities of copper pesticides or spraying in cool, wet weather, as this increases the risk of copper damage to plant tissues. Common copper pesticides include copper sulfate — bluestone or blue vitriol — and copper sulfate with lime, or Bordeaux mixture. Copper hydroxide (CuOH) is recommended to fight potato blights, early or late, or both… I don’t recall. But as soon as blight signs are evident, apply the treatment. Which means to have the CuOH powder… I believe it’s grayish-white… on hand, so as not to waste valuable time, thus delaying the muchneeded treatment for your potatoes, and even tomatoes. Most of us believe in forgiveness. But forgiveness is a word, which, if Phytophthera infestans (blight’s causative organism) could
speak, would not be part of the pathogen’s vocabulary. Another pest control category is vegetable derivatives. Common among these are garlic and hot pepper extracts, useful in home gardens for repelling animals and pest insects. According to Cornell University, these methods don’t work well against most major apple pests, but may provide some repellent activity against birds, deer and other animals. These substances are low in toxicity, but require regular application of concentrated formulas. Garlic has medicinal properties: alternative medicine enthusiasts say that it replicates one of the cycline drugs, I believe Aureomycin. Fed to milk cows excessively, garlic can cause a false drug positive reading in bulk tank samples. People who eat lots of garlic need to be sure they’re not taking other blood thinners. Mosquitos prefer the blood of non-garlic eaters over the blood of garlic eaters. That makes sense, since garlic worn around one’s neck is said to repel vampire bats. Sulfur pesticides, including lime-sulfur, work against powdery mildew, scab and other fungi, as well as some insects. Sulfur-containing pesticides have an unpleasant smell, similar to rotten eggs. When lime is present, the compound may also be caustic. Ohio State University recommends against using sulfur in weather above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, because sulfur may kill beneficial insects and spiders. [If I remember correctly, you weren’t supposed to spray Pre-Merge (EPA-banned
years ago), if temperatures got much higher than that.] Only use sulfurbased pesticides when other control methods fail. According to the University of Maine, lime-sulfur can be expensive; microfine sulfur is usually a less expensive option. Another natural pesticide category is activated clay. Spraying apple trees with kaolin clay results in an unattractive appearance but prevents insects from feeding and breeding. Kaolin clay is relatively inexpensive, and so nontoxic that it’s used as a food additive. Kaolin is effective against plum circulio, lesser appleworm, codling moth, and a range of leafrollers and leafhoppers. It is unlikely to poison bees, but may harm some beneficial insect species after repeated application. Clay is messy (think about how mud sticks to your boots) and requires extensive cleaning after harvest. Birds dust themselves so as to get rid of insect pests. Insects hate the tiny dust particles which irritate their soft cuticles, through which some of their respiration occurs. Elephants even suck up dust with their trunks and exhaust it, as they exhale, blowing it all over their huge bodies, to chase away insects, just like the birds do. Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a type of activated clay, but it’s actually the skeleton of the single-celled organisms called diatoms. The best way to envision what a DE particle looks like under a microscope is to consider a “jack”, i.e., what a kid plays with (or at least played with when I was little)… when he or she has a ball with jacks. A “jack” has (or had) six points; take away two of them. Then spread out the remaining four, equally through three dimensions, and that’s what the basic DE particle looks like. To tiny insects, encountering DE is as harsh on them as you or I running into barbed wire again, and again, and again.
Often I recommend using DE to counter lice and even mange mites during the dead of winter, when these tiny six-leggers and eight-leggers make life terribly miserable for livestock. When you apply it to the back of affected animals, be sure not to breathe the dust; preferably wear a mask when dusting cattle with DE. I would like to digress and comment on copper, not as a pesticide, but as a coagulant. In high school biology and again in college zoology, I learned that copper is critical in the clotting of, you guessed it, blood. Without copper, if I remember correctly, fibrin, and fibrinogen, will not form. Absent these two highly complex compounds, there is no coagulation. No coagulation… I need go no further. Except one time I was moving 50 pound bags of minerals with a crude home-made hand-cart. I set a small plastic pallet on the “fingers” of this implement. I knew not to drop a bag of mineral on the pallet, so I lay it down carefully. But I did drop the second bag on the first… bad idea. The top of the hand-cart bounced forward so that its flat center piece hit me in the forehead, but with a corner. The sensation was basically a dull sting. Another scar on my head, no problem, since I already have plenty. I looked for a leaky copper sulfate bag, remembering the coagulation trait of this element. I found a small pile of beautiful blue crystals on the mineral warehouse floor. (Think of the lovely blue color resulting from contacting a penny with flame.) I rubbed the crystals on the gash in my forehead. The bleeding stopped immediately. Then the searing pain kicked in. If I’d looked hard around the warehouse, I could have likely found some spider webs, which also have clotting properties. And even if they caused great agony upon contacting the wound, they would have hurt less than the copper sulfate.

to be received to Farm Credit East by Nov. 26. The actual amount of the grants provided to the farm families will depend on the number of applications and the amount of total funds raised, with the cap being $500 per farm. To be eligible a farm must have had $10,000 in damage or crop losses. This initiative covers the states of New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. “Many hardworking farm families have suffered tremendously as a result of the Irene and Lee disasters. It will take years for many of these families to recover,” said Bill Lipinski, CEO of Farm Credit East. “We are pleased to join with CoBank and United Way to provide this support to help families have a better holiday season.” “These grants are not intended to help cover business losses — that is the role of insurance and support from FEMA, USDA and state government. We just want folks to know we care and hope that they can be positive during the holidays,” said Lipinski. “These funds are available to all eligible farmers in declared disaster areas in the states of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire — these funds are not restricted to Farm Credit customers.” “Supporting agriculture and rural communities is a core part of the mission of CoBank and the Farm Credit System,” said Bob Egerton, Eastern
Region President for CoBank. “We’re extremely pleased to be joining with Farm Credit East, Yankee Farm Credit and United Way to help farmers in the Northeast, who play such a vital role in the region’s rural economy.” “At United Way, we know that the best way to help people in need in our communities is to work together. It’s what we call living united,” said Brian T. Hassett, President and CEO, United Way of the Greater Capital Region. “We’re grateful to Farm Credit East for selecting us as their partner, and grateful to our local communities for coming together to help their neighbors in need.” As a lender, Farm Credit East is working with customers impacted by the disasters. Efforts vary depending on each individual situation, but include loan payment deferments, loan restructuring and new loans. “We are very appreciative of the efforts of United Way to work with us to facilitate this initiative”, said CEO Lipinski. Anyone interested in supporting farm families can contribute to this fund by sending a check to United Way GCR — 2011 Farm Assistance, United Way of the Greater Capital Region, PO Box 13865, Albany, NY 12212, or visit www.unitedwaygcr.org/donate.aspx (in the honor section — type in Farm Assistance). All funds will be distributed to affected farms or non-profit organizations that are directly assisting farmers impacted by these disasters.

A View from Hickory Heights by Ann Swanson Daylight Saving Time Why do we insist on keeping this antiquated system that most of the world has abandoned or never had in the first place? As I viewed a map showing countries that have Daylight Saving Time, I found nearly all of North America and Europe plus Brazil and a small patch in Australia observe DST. Another map at another site showed parts of Asia observing it as well. DST is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana, and Arizona. The idea of daylight saving was conceived by Benjamin Franklin while an envoy to Paris in the late 1700s. It took another century before the idea was proposed as a policy. DST was proposed by George Hudson in 1895 to add more daylight hours to the afternoon and take some away from
the morning hours. It was found that DST benefits retail sales and sports but causes problems for farmers. You can see what won out here. There was a large section about health benefits/drawbacks but much of the information was inclusive. When you come right down to it, there is a matter of personal preference. Although the DST system had an early goal of saving electricity that is less important these days since businesses are running 24/7 and heating and air conditioning are used year-round. DST was first used by Germany and its World War I allies in 1916 as a way to conserve coal during wartime. The U.S. adopted DST in 1918. In 1919 by popular demand the law was repealed and DST became a local option. Franklin Roosevelt instituted year-round DST from 1942–1945. From 1945–1966 there was no federal law so communi-
ties made their choice. A law was passed standardizing DST in 1966. In 1974 President Nixon signed the Daylight Saving Time Energy Conservation Act mandating DST from the beginning of January that year until the beginning of October. The statistics point to insignificant savings of energy. Oddly enough it is convenience stores that benefit the most from the time switch! Some studies point to an increased consumption of motor fuel when there is DST, but that is variable. Standard time to change clocks has been the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. That means that the majority of the calendar year is spent on DST. It has become common
practice for fire departments to advocate changing the batteries in smoke detectors when the clocks change. Even that has changed with the hard wiring of those devices into home electrical systems. Now, as to why farmers do not like DST. Have you ever found an animal that could tell time? When the clocks change, animals do not. Even my pets at home do not adapt well. Although the clocks moved ahead, my animals get up at the same time. It takes close to a month before everything equals out. My son works a lot more with the animals at this point than I do. I know that he does not change his schedule when the clocks move ahead or go back. It is like the world around changes but at home the schedule stays the same.
DST also played a role in haying. Farmers wanted their hay to dry early so that they could get it off the field before it was time to milk the cows for the second time that day. With less daylight (sunny) hours, the farmers had to wait to mow the hay until later in the day. It was the same for the baling of hay. My husband was not an early farmer. He learned that little could be done if he finished milking the cows early so he enjoyed sleeping in a bit — at least 7 a.m. Until I married a farmer I did not think about how they were impacted by the change of time. I grew up with DST and thought little about it. I knew that the daylight hours increased and decreased but I never thought about the role that might play on vari-

ous jobs. It was not until that first year living with my dairy farmer husband that I saw the reality of the situation. While doing my research I found some fascinating incidences of events fueled by DST or foiled by it. Statistics are strange things. When I was in college I did an independent study on statistics. It was not long before I discovered that statistics are skewed by inclusion of data or omission of it. You can make the statistics prove anything that you want them to prove. That being said, folks, always weigh the statistics being given by media with a bit of skepticism. Check things out for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

by Steve Suther It takes so many plants to make a stand, cows to make a herd and drops to make a rain. Before turning that herd out to pasture, you look for enough plant mass to support their grazing. If you’re watching a couple of bred heifers for a month, you might as well be watching 20 or 30. These examples relate to what I like to call “critical mass,” or enough to make a difference. I don’t use the term in a precise way, just kind of adapted from two fields. In nuclear physics, that tipping point is the divide between sustaining a chain reaction and fizzling out. In sociodynamics, it’s the threshold number of people in a group that can make something happen by their exchange of ideas. There’s always water vapor in the air, but you don’t notice it unless it is either practically devoid and uncomfortably dry, or getting closer to moderately abundant and rain. A few people may not be able to create a movement or a brand, and their efforts could fizzle out. But with just the right dynamics, they can spark an exchange of ideas that leads to something with sustained power. Back to the farm or ranch, with a given stocking

the last few years, and studies show demand for it has been increasing, at the expense of Select and lower quality beef. Cattle genetics have improved, getting near that critical point in many herds where a whole new world opens up. It isn’t just about adding more land and cows or even pounds of beef. Herd managers have read the market signals and the bull catalogs and chosen bulls that add predictable marbling to their herds, which now produce 80 percent, 90 percent, even 100 percent Choice or better beef. Increasingly, they participate in ownership, data feedback and premiums. And the market wants more, judging by the recent $50-per-hundredweight spread between Prime and Select beef. When premium Choice was only 15 percent of the mix, and Prime 1.5 percent, they could be ignored. At double that ratio, the quality movement has reached a tipping point and long-term profitability could spread through the beef industry like a cascading chain reaction.

rate and climate, a certain amount of land supports a cowherd large enough to justify facilities, lead you to try new marketing alternative and care about profitability. If you try to do too much with poor planning or management, your enterprise can go “supercritical.” Or that could refer to what folks are saying down at the feed store. Once you arrive at a threshold or realized goal that brings the change you were hoping for, good things should keep happening as long as you can manage the dynamics. The beef industry pursued a quest for critical mass in the area of adding value to underutilized cuts. When meat scientists pulled the teres major muscle out of the chuck and realized how good it was, that alone would not bring about the cascade of added value to end meats that we have today. It took a producer-funded and sustained effort in locating other cuts worth fabricating from the chuck. That made it profitable for packers to change the way they process beef and pass some of that back to the ranch. Maybe you picked up on the unusual terminology I used to discuss humidity, a comparison to marbling in beef. Above the Choice/Select border, you find just enough to deliver a pretty good steak, most of the time. As you try beef with lower marbling scores like “practically devoid,” you notice something missing: flavor. At that level, beef demand can fizzle out. When it reaches a critical mass in the mid- to upper Choice grade, the marbling and tenderness that comes with it sustains a consistently great eating experience for millions of consumers. Quality grade in U.S. beef has been on the rise for

NFU: Senate must honor contract with America’s farmers WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Farmers Union (NFU) joined a coalition of organizations in signing a letter to U.S. Senators urging them to oppose amendments to the Fiscal Year 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill that would affect mandatory funding for U.S. farm policies. “This is the end of the fourth year of the current five-year farm bill upon which U.S. farmers and ranchers and their lenders have already made financial decisions,” the coalition wrote. “Amendments to an appropriations bill that would alter the terms of this contract with our producers occur at the wrong time
and in the wrong venue.” The amendments come on the heels of a letter by leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate Agriculture Com-
mittees to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction outlining a plan to reduce the deficit. “The Senate should respect the ongoing work
of this bipartisan, bicameral effort,” said NFU President Roger Johnson. “Leadership of both the House and Senate Agriculture Committees
continue to work very hard to find areas to help reduce the federal deficit while maintaining sound policy for America’s family farmers and ranch-
ers. These additional cuts could have very damaging effects on U.S. agriculture and should be opposed by members of the Senate.”

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You Get stuffed
Celebrate with flavorful fillings November is infamous for stuffing — whether we’re fluffing our nest in anticipation of winter or filling our bellies with a harvest of savory flavors. Beef isn’t typically associated with stuffing, but Certified Angus Beef ® brand Chef Michael Ollier has created several rich and tasty beef dishes that will have you stuffing steak — and yourself — in no time.

Last week’s solution
by Stewart Truelsen “Made in USA” are three words you won’t see very often on items sold by major retailers. It’s so true of consumer goods that a store in upstate New York is making a name for itself by selling only items made in
the United States. The Made in America store has been so popular that buses on the way to Niagara Falls are stopping at Elma, NY, so tourists can visit. The owner proudly tells shoppers that he has carefully researched everything
FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE he sells and all items are 100 percent made-inAmerica products. The fact of the matter is that if you want to buy products made in this country you don’t have to drive to New York. Your best bet is to shop at a supermarket or
farmers’ market. According to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Americans spend 91 percent of their food dollars on food produced here. The report doesn’t itemize, but it’s a good bet that coffee, tea, tropical fruit and seafood account for a large measure of imported food. If you shop at one of the major discount retailers for consumer goods, the numbers tell a much different story. Nearly 36 percent of personal expenditures for clothing and shoes are for products labeled “Made in China.” American-made clothing and shoes account for just 25 percent of all purchases. A separate report by the Toy Industry Association found that 90 percent of children’s toys are made in China. On a recent trip to a major discount retailer, we found clothing made in China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh and a country we weren’t familiar
American Farm Bureau Federation with at all — Lesotho. It turns out that Lesotho is an impoverished African nation where several major clothing companies have set up assembly operations because labor is so cheap. Globalization and technology have caused the loss of many factory jobs in the United States. Things we used to buy that were made with American hands are now made by foreign hands or aren’t made with human hands at all, but robots. Some call this progress, others call it unfair and few think it will change. As Americans we sometimes take food for granted. We’ve never had a major food shortage, and we can choose from an infinite variety of safe, affordable food. But, it is not just that we take food for granted. It’s that we take American food for granted.
We may accept buying a pair of jeans stitched in Lesotho, but would we feel the same about purchasing food from there? It’s doubtful we would. The locavores who insist on locally produced food would have an even bigger problem accepting it. At a time when so many consumer goods are imported and some Americans are even leaving the country to save money on dental work, surgery or prescription drugs, we need to be thankful for American agriculture and support the efforts of farmers and ranchers. Our homegrown food supply is an important economic strength and an envy of the rest of the world.

A Few Words by Phoebe Hall Visit to a large rotary milking parlor A couple of weeks ago a friend asked my husband if he would like to visit one of the largest rotary milking parlors in the area. This friend, DB, had worked on the Walker Gordon dairy farm, the largest certified dairy farm in the nation, located in Plainsbourgh, NJ. He had been a herdsman back in the early 1950’s, alongside WH, a fellow herdsman. Not wanting to miss this chance, my husband, WC, said yes. So, at the appointed time the three, WC, DB, and WH all started out on their adventure. I should have warned
DB and WH before they left that WC has a knack for getting lost. As they tell it, they were so busy reminiscing that they forgot to tell WC when to turn and before they realized it, they were in unfamiliar territory. All this transpired only 12 miles from WH’s farm. Finally, at a distance, WC recognized a water tower that was near the farm they were trying to find. Talk about luck. All three were relieved when they arrived at their destination. But after all that, their luck seemed to run out. It appeared that the milking was all over and all the three could do was observe as this ultra modern milking parlor was being cleaned up between milkings. As they stood watching, the in-house Rabbi whose job is to validate the pureness of the milk, walked by and informed them that the next milking would begin shortly.
Sure enough, in a few short minutes, cows started entering the 60-stall parlor, one at a time and the milking machines were attached. They timed the first cow’s complete cycle from entering to exiting. It only took nine minutes, which means that it rotates six times per hour. That adds up to 360 cows per hour passing through the parlor, or 2,800 cows per an eight-hour shift. That parlor would have held our whole herd at one time. Something else that was interesting were the comparisons that DB and WH made between the two parlors. The Walker Gordon Rotolactor parlor had a capacity for 50 cows at one time and it took 10 minutes to make a complete revolution. They milked 1,600 cows three times a day in a parlor that was built in 1932 and operated until 1972. Both of these former employees were
born in the early 1930’s and had met at the Walker Gordon farm where they had worked together. Later, both of them served in the U.S. Airforce. WH ended up dairy farming from 1960 until 2006 when he retired, while DB worked in other industries. I’ve asked myself, why would anyone want to farm at the magnitude of these two farms. I’ve concluded that we should all be thankful that there are those out there who are willing to put up with all the grief that comes with farming any size farm, especially when it comes to the uncertainties of the weather. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t have the food choices that we have today. They are a blessing from God! Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. (Psalms 107:1) NIV
Schumer and Gillibrand fight to prevent cuts to disaster relief funding WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand urged the members of the House-Senate Conference Committee to include the $3.176 billion for disaster relief in the Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, and Science, and Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill that passed the full Senate recently. New York State is still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee this summer. The Senate version of the legislation includes $500 million for the Economic Development Administration, $1.9 billion for the Federal Highways Administration Emergency Relief program, $400 million for Community Development Block Grants and $376 million
for three programs within the Department of Agriculture. “The back-to-back storms packed a powerful one-two-punch, leaving devastation in their wake,” said Schumer. “As we continue on the long road towards recovery and rebuilding, it’s absolutely essential that the federal government helps homeowners, businesses, and farmers across the state get the assistance they need. As I’ve traveled throughout the Capital Region, Central New York, the North Country, Southern Tier and Hudson Valley the message has been the same: we’re going to come back, but we need federal help to do it. Congress needs to do what we have done each time our country has suffered a disaster, and step up to the plate to deliver the assis-
tance that will help our communities get back on their feet.” “Hurricane Irene and Tropical Strom Lee had a devastating impact on communities across New York State,” said Senator Gillibrand. “This funding would be a step forward to ensuring federal assistance to help our families, farmers, businesses and communities recover. America has always stood by those suffering from disaster and helped them to rebuild. We have an obligation to help these families rebuild today.” In October, the Gillibrand-Schumer Amendment passed the Senate, which would invest an additional $110 million for a total of $327 million to support the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) and the Emergency Water-
shed Program (EWP) that provide emergency services and resources for agricultural communities following natural disasters. Nearly $40 million of this funding would go to New York to help farmers rebuild.

Sussex County man named New Jersey’s 2012 Outstanding Young Farmer Applications now being sought for 2013 honoree TRENTON, NJ — Beef and produce farmer Paul “Duce” Tallamy II of Wantage has been selected as the 2012 Outstanding Young Farmer by the New Jersey State Board of Agriculture. Tallamy, 39, will be presented with his award in January at the 2012 New Jersey State Agricultural Convention in Atlantic City. In addition, Tallamy was named one of the 10 finalists for the National Outstanding Young Farmer Award and will attend the National Outstanding Young Farmer Awards Congress in Springdale, AR, in February where four of those people will be selected as winners. “Duce Tallamy is a first-time farmer who is dedicated to producing top-notch products, conserving natural resources and educating the public about the importance of agriculture in our state,” said New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher. “New Jersey agriculture is fortunate to have talented young people of this caliber who choose farming as a profession. Tallamy has truly earned his Outstanding Young Farmer title through his commitment to New Jersey agriculture and serving his community.” Tallamy got involved in agriculture while working on a degree in applied science at SUNY Cobleskill. After graduating, he worked as a herdsman on an 1,800head dairy farm. A few years later, he became partners with the owner of an old farm in his hometown of Wantage and together they renovated the buildings on the 250 acres of property, reclaimed the cropland and purchased some cattle. In 2006, he and his wife, Joy, purchased the farm, which is part of the Farmland Preservation Program, and began Green Valley Farms, a produce and natural beef cattle operation. The Tallamy’s operate four retail markets, all within 20 miles of the home farm, selling their own sweet corn, cut flowers, fruits and vegetables. At their farm in Wantage, they offer pick-
your-own strawberries, cut flower and pumpkins and USDA-certified all natural beef. Joy Tallamy runs class trips and farm education tours and they host yearly strawberry, ice cream, sweet corn and harvest festivals. Conserving natural resources is important to
Tallamy and he works closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service on manure management, comprehensive Nutrient Management Program, grazing systems and energy audit program.

by Patrick D. Burk Established in 1961 by Harvey J. Cummings, Cummings and Bricker has always played an important and integral part of America’s agricultural industry. Harvey, a Salesman for Eastern Machine of Youngstown,
Ohio, became aware of all the opportunities that were in the Western New York Area for distributing a wide range of products. He first set up shop in the old Massey Harris Plant on Harvester Ave and soon joined forces with Robert M. Bricker, thus
becoming Cummings and Bricker. Early products included Weaverline Feed Carts, which is still with Cummings & Bricker to this day and Northland products. Always a family business, Cummings and Bricker now includes
Harvey’s two sons, Jim and Gene as well as their spouses Lynn and Sherry. Jim Cummings is the President, Gene is the Vice President, Lynn is the Controller and Sherry is the Office Manger of the Carlisle Branch. Now with two locations, Cummings and Bricker still serves the unique agricultural market with American made and imported farm equipment. The 50th Anniversary Celebration was a perfect time to hold their 2011 Expo. This was the third time that they had and

Both were a successful venture for the company. The 2011 Expo was started as both a display of all their equipment lines and a celebration of their 50th year. It was held the last week of September and lucked out with the weather. Over 450 dealers and guests attended the three day celebration from Europe and the entire Eastern United States. At the 50th Anniversary Dinner, Cummings & Bricker President Jim Cummings thanked all those who attended but more importantly thanked those who had supported the business and were clients and customers of Cummings & Bricker for the past 50 years. Vice President Gene Cummings, thanked the employees and family members who have been an important part of the company’s success. Special tributes were given by Frank Weaver, of Weaverline Products and Tom Kelsey from Z & M Ag and Turf. Kelsey also presented a proclamation from the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce commending Cummings and Bricker for all their years of being a part of the Genesee County community. The two-day event was hosted by the Cummings family and included seminars, dinners and hospitality events at the Clarion Hotel in Batavia, NY and the Batavia Downs and Casino. Four races at Batavia Downs were held with sponsorships from Cummings & Bricker.
unteer fireman. New Jersey annually recognizes the outstanding achievements of a young farmer, who is an upstanding leader, respected agriculturalist and is active in community or faith organizations. The Department of Agriculture is now accepting applications for the Year 2013 Outstanding Young Farmer Award. The submission deadline for nominations is Jan. 15, 2012. Nominees must be
farm operators, deriving a minimum of two-thirds of their income from farming and must be between the ages of 21-40, not becoming 41 prior to Jan. 1 of the year for which they are applying. Candidates who have a financial interest in the farm operation (a sole proprietor, partners, or a corporation) will receive higher ranking in the OYF judging process. However, nominees also may include salaried farm managers and em-
ployees who are actively involved in policy and management decisions. Submission of a financial statement is not required for state competition. A panel of five judges reviews each nominee’s application based on the following criteria: progress in their agricultural career (50 percent of the total score); soil and water conservation practices (25 percent of the total score); and contribu-
CAB’s Colvin Fund helps education dreams come true Pursuing a passion for agriculture through further education — that’s the top requirement for the Louis M. “Mick” Colvin Scholarship offered by the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand. This year, $15,000 will be split among five undergraduate scholarships, in the amounts of $5,000, $4,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000. College juniors and seniors who have shown commitment to the beef industry, either through coursework or activities, are encouraged to apply by the Dec. 2 deadline. Applications are evaluated on involvement and scholastic achievement, communication skills and reference letters. A new opportunity, an additional $5,000 graduate level scholarship will
also be given to a full-time masters or doctorate student conducting research related to high-quality beef production. Applications for that award are due Jan. 13, 2012. “The graduate level scholarship will build on what the Colvin Scholarship has always done,” says Mick Colvin, who co-founded Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) in 1978 and served as president for 22 years. “We will be able to groom the next great scientist supporting premium beef.” The funds given have more than doubled since 2009. “It’s very, very gratifying to see the amount we’ve offered grow over the years,” Colvin says. “Our partners have really pitched in and they’ve made this scholarship what it is today.” Those supporters raised a record $92,000 in scholarship monies at a golf
outing and auction held during the brand’s annual conference this year in Sunriver, OR. The dollars go into an account that generates the interest proceeds used to fund these scholarships each year. That ensures the longevity of the program and its impact on the industry. The 2012 golf outing sponsorship was purchased by Palmer Food Services/G&C Food Distributors, Rochester, NY. The following companies also supported the live auction: Holten Meat Inc., East St. Louis, IL; Cargill Meat Solutions, Wichita, KS; Tyson Fresh Meats Inc., Dakota Dunes, SD; Sysco Columbia LLC, Columbia, SC; Cattleman’s Choice Feedyard Inc., Gage, OK; Niman Ranch, Denver, CO; and from Canada, Retail Ready Food Products Inc., Mississauga, Ontario; GFS Montreal & Quebec; and Boucherville Quebec.
The top two recipients also win an allexpense-paid trip to the 2012 CAB Annual Conference, Sept. 19-21 in White Sulphur Springs, WVA. This is an opportunity to interact with leaders throughout the production, packing, retail and foodservice industries. “I can’t say enough good about the past winners,” Colvin says. “They’re great, great students and I’m proud to be associated with them.” The Colvin Scholarship Fund began in 1999 when Colvin retired as CAB executive director. The scholarships recognize his role in making dreams a reality and inspiring others to be their best. Colvin co-founded the CAB program in 1978, leading to establishing the world’s leading brand of fresh beef.

Calling all beef producers and their friends and family Have you wished you knew the facts to support how much you care for your cattle when talking to a concerned friend or consumer? Do you wish you knew how to effectively communicate your stewardship for your land and livestock to help improve the public image of beef? The opportunity to gain this information and more is being offered to you again this year in conjunction with the annual meeting and Winter Management conference. Daren Williams, will
be one of our keynote speakers at this year’s conference and he will be holding another Master’s of Beef Advocacy graduation. For those of you not familiar with the program, all you need to do is complete six online courses, each of which will take about an hour and then attend the graduation. The topics covered include modern beef production practices, animal welfare, beef safety, beef nutrition, environmental stewardship, and the beef checkoff. This course is perfect for the cattleman to learn the
information and skills needed to convey the positive message about what we do and for the concerned consumer who just wants to know more about where their food comes from. To sign up, go to www.beef.org/mastersofbeefadvocacy.aspx and fill out the application form. With all of the misinformation in the mainstream media and movements such as Meatless Mondays and animal rights organizations gaining steam, we need each one of you to participate in
this program. Even if you are not interested in blogging or doing media interview, we still need you to get your MBA certification so you can talk to your family and friends about all the positive things that beef producers do on a daily basis and how much we care for our animals. We need to have our story heard if we want to protect our way of life from the HSUS and others who would prefer a vegan world. Sign up now!

NFU: Senate Ag Appropriations Bill a step in the right direction WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate passed the agricultural appropriations bill by a 69-30 vote: “The passage of the Senate ag appropriations bill is a step in the right direction towards reducing our nation’s deficit while avoiding some of the more damaging cuts. “We have maintained that agriculture will do its part to help reduce the deficit. The bill represents a 15 percent reduction in ag funding levels since Fiscal Year 2010. That is still larger than many other departments, but better than the 26 percent cut passed in the House appropriations bill earlier this year. “NFU was also pleased that the Senate did not include a policy rider to defund the completion and implementation of the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) rule. The GIPSA rule will help restore fairness to the livestock market and ensure that independent producers are not at the mercy of large packers. “Overall, the ag appropriations bill is a reasonable bill, and we hope that the final ag appropriations bill, after conferring with the House, closely resembles the Senate version.”

Bradford County illegal dumpsite survey in progress TOWANDA, PA — Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, in partnership with the Bradford County Conservation District, has started surveying Bradford County roads for illegal dumpsites. The goal with this project is to identify and map every visible illegal dumpsite from the public right-of-way within the county. The data gathered will be summarized into a final report, which will be available to the public in June 2012. Funding for the survey is provided through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. In order to develop a comprehensive strategic plan to address illegal dumping including public policy, proper resource allocation, community education, and cleanup and abatement efforts, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful embarked on a statewide illegal dump survey program in 2005. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful believes that in order to truly address the root causes associated with illegal dumping, the problem needed to be better defined. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful has surveyed a total of 55 counties, locating 5,759 dumpsites with a total estimated
tonnage of 17,088 tons. Illegal dumping mostly occurs in remote and secluded places, rural areas where few persons live, and the roads that are less traveled. However, for many people who are residents of an urban area, an illegal dump is often within a one-mile radius of their home. Overall, very few people are aware of the widespread problem of illegal dumping in Pennsylvania. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s illegal dump surveys educate state, county, and local officials, as well as citizens, about the problem of illegal dumping and provide valuable data about the dumpsites and the community in which they reside. “The purpose of an illegal dump survey is to assess and document as many illegal dumpsites as possible within a county,” says Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “The survey is a tool that can be used for planning purposes within a community, provide valuable insight into development of solid waste and recycling programs, and be used to gain support for funding for public awareness programs and education, as well as generate
s hat’ W k Loo ew! N m trea S e Man Now is ne! Onli
funds to clean the existing dumpsites.” The survey process typically takes a year to complete. Municipalities, state agencies, environmental groups, and other key stakeholders are contacted and information regarding known dumpsites is gathered. Surveyors then document known and unknown sites driving public roadways. Standardized assessment forms are used to collect data, pictures are taken for documentation, as well as GPS coordinates for mapping purposes. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful surveys do not include private dumps or farm dumps.
Residents of Bradford County that are aware of an illegal dumpsite are asked to contact Todd Crouch, Program Manager of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, at 877-772-3673 to report the location of the site. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is surveying six counties this year in addition to Bradford County, including Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Montour, and Philadelphia. Completed surveys are available for download from the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful website at www.keeppabeautiful.org/IllegalDumpSurveys.aspx.

Greenwich FFA members attend National FFA Convention On Sunday, Oct. 16, thirteen Greenwich FFA members and their advisor, Betsy Foote, began their trip to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN. The tour was arranged by Rick Welsh, of Lutz Dairy Nu-
trition, David Marbot, Schoharie Agriculture teacher, and Todd Cipperly, Schoharie Valley FFA Alumni. The tour made stops across New York State picking up another 100 FFA members. The first
tour stop was at HemDale Farms. This vegetable and 600 cow dairy farm in Seneca Castle, NY, had 13 robotic milkers and stressed the importance of synergy throughout their business. The FFA members were impressed by the high level of technology with their milking system and automated robotic feed scrapers. Other tour stops included the Henry Ford Museum of American history. Greenwich FFA member, Dylan Gibson, had the opportunity to sit in the exact seat that Rosa Parks sat when she made history in Alabama over 50 years ago. Super bowl footballs were being made while the group toured the Wilson Football Factory. Other stops included a pickle factory, an agricultural incubator facility, Cabellas and Louisville Slugger. More than 54,000 FFA members and advisors converged on Indianapolis, IN, for the National FFA Convention on Oct. 19. National level career

What can 4-H do for you? by Karen E. Soule, 4-H Educator, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County If you have children between the ages of 6-18, have you ever considered 4-H? Similar to scouting in the fact that it is positive youth development, it is for both boys and girls and in most cases, free for youth to join. Through 4-H, youth achieve mastery of skills, and gain a sense of belonging, independence, and generosity. In today’s world 4-H is much more than farm animals, sewing, and cooking, although if that suits your tastes, you can certainly find that in one
of several clubs in our county. We like to tell kids that anything that you like to do, we do in 4-H. We have rocketry, entomology, aerospace, computer technology, geospatial, robotics, woodworking, photography, small engines, forestry, environmental sciences, gardening, nutrition, theater arts, citizenship, and, of course, animal science. That’s a lot of things to do and learn about! In Jefferson County, we have four specialty clubs. The Adventure Club specializes in shooting sports and outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and living history. We have certified instructors in archery,

air pistol, rifle, and shotgun. During the winter they meet once a month at Gander Mountain for archery practice. The Furry Friends 4-H Dog Club focuses on dogs, and also goes hiking with their dogs among other activities. The Peeps and Squeaks 4-H Club features rabbits, cavies, and poultry. The Jefferson County Dairy Club youth focus on dairy cows and agriculture. There are also several horse clubs scattered throughout the county. These are just a few of the clubs we have to choose from. Community Service is a big project that clubs participate in. We’ve had a club do work with Habitat for Humanity, another has done reading for the
blind. Recently the Furry Friends held a Cache In-Trash Out (CITO) Event at the Wildlife Management Area at Black Pond in the southern part of the county. These CITO events are for the geocaching community where they come in, do some caching, and clean up an area of trash. It was a perfect fit to start off National 4-H Week which was held on Oct. 2-8. The theme for the week was ‘Join the Revolution of Responsibility’. If 4-H sounds interesting to you, give us a call. We are also always looking for volunteers and new club leaders. We can be reached at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County office at 315-788-8450.

Trucks ATA, TCA unite in call for increased truck productivity The nation’s two leading trucking industry trade groups — American Trucking Associations and the Truckload Carriers Association — came together at the conclusion of ATA’s Management Conference & Exhibition to call on policy makers to allow for increased truck productivity. “The trucking industry, like any family, sometimes takes a while to reach a consensus, but we’re happy that we have been able to bring our respective policies on truck productivity in
line,” ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said. “It is critical that we petition our elected leaders with one voice and this brings us closer to our industry unity.” “Considering all of the challenges we face as an industry, it should always be our priority to find common ground on as many issues as possible,” said TCA President Chris Burruss. “I applaud the leadership of TCA and ATA for finding common ground on this difficult issue.” The ATA Board of Directors voted to add
88,000-pound, five-axle combinations with enhanced braking capability, to its list of preferred productivity improvements. This new component joins 97,000pound, six-axle combinations and harmonization of longer-combination vehicles on the menu of productivity improvements ATA will advocate for in Washington and state capitals across the country. ATA endorsed increasing truck weight limits to 97,000

in order to continue delivering the nation’s essential goods,” ATA Chairman Dan England, chairman C.R. England, said. “Studies have shown that more productive trucks are safer, more efficient and greener than conventional combinations without causing more wear and tear on our roads, and now that we and TCA have come together on this issue, we’re in a better position to continue to make that

case to policymakers.” “Given the advances in brake technology, an 88,000-pound, five axle truck using enhanced brakes will meet federal rules limiting commercial vehicle stopping distance,” said TCA Chairman Gary Salisbury, President and CEO of Fikes Truck Line, Hope, AK. “By amending our policies and compromising, TCA and ATA have set the trucking industry on the road to success.”

Graves: ‘Inviting, long road ahead for trucking’ In his annual State of the Industry Address, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Bill Graves said that despite the prevailing political and economic uncertainty in the country, the United States and the trucking industry are poised to see good days ahead. “In Phoenix I told you that we’d weathered the
pounds in 2006. Also during the week, TCA voted to approve a two-tiered productivity policy of supporting combinations of 88,000 pounds on five axles as well as 97,000 pounds on six axles. “With possible hoursof-service changes threatening to limit capacity, congestion choking our highways and the driver shortage worsening, we need to find ways to improve our industry’s productivity

ARLINGTON, VA — American Trucking Associations President and CEO Bill Graves and Chairman Dan England questioned Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s contention in a letter to Congress that the administration is drafting a new hours-of-service proposal based on the “most comprehensive and up-to-date data and analysis.” In an Oct. 21 letter to the secretary, Graves and England said LaHood’s contention was well off-base. “There is little or no comprehensive, up-to-date evidence, data or science supporting FMCSA’s proposal,” ATA wrote. “FMCSA readily admitted it did
not have sufficient data on which to base a driving time limit change, yet the agency argued for and stated it ‘currently favors’ reducing the limit.” Graves and England, chairman of C.R. England Inc., Salt Lake City, said this wording is “a clever way of attempting to shift the burden of proof to the industry to justify the current drive-time limit.” ATA’s letter goes on to point out the flaws in FMCSA’s research and supporting arguments relating to fatigue’s involvement in large truck crashes. The pair also took issue with the Department’s contention that a delay in

promulgating this flawed final rule would “create confusion and uncertainty” around the regulation, noting that “the record... is replete with industry and state law enforcement commentary on how much confusion and uncertainty the proposed changes would cause if finalized.” Graves and England said ATA agreed with LaHood on the need to do everything possible to promote safety on our highways, but criticized the department for forgoing other, more promising safety strategies in favor of an unnecessary revision of the hours-ofservice rule. “Too many other safety-critical opportunities have been lost... and we hope your department will stand behind the current rules and shift re-
sources to other high priority issues that will have a meaningful impact on highway safety issues such as sleep disorders that are not even currently addressed by FMCSA guidelines much less rules,” Graves and England wrote.

Conference and Exhibition here. “Little did I know that ‘bigger’ was going to be the size of the federal debt; ‘bigger’ was going to be the unemployment rate and ‘bigger’ would characterize the number of government regulations our industry would be facing. And ‘better’ — well ‘better’ is apparently caught up in some sort of political traffic jam and just hasn‘t been able to get here yet.” Despite frustration with Washington’s inability to come together on seemingly simple like the need to fix roads and bridges and pass a highway bill, Graves said he was still optimistic about the economy and trucking’s future. “I really believe we are blessed with a country, with a people and with an economy that is capable of surviving anything our government can throw at it,” Graves “Government is not supposed to solve all our problems — but at this point we’d be thrilled if government could figure out how to not ‘be the problem.’” Even with many consumers and businesses “on the sidelines” due to
economic uncertainty, Graves said there “is an inviting, long road ahead for trucking.” “During this time of economic uncertainty, it‘s easy to misjudge the opportunity that‘s on the trucking industry‘s horizon,” Graves said. “The economy will recover. And when it does, the trucking industry is going to be one of the ‘first in line’ beneficiaries.” “In almost every speech I make, I point out the expected population growth of America — expected to grow from 300 million people in 2006 to 400 million by 2050 — something on the order of adding a city the size of Houston or Chicago each and every year. 400 million people need a lot of Good Stuff and most of time we’ll be bringing it. Keep on Truckin‘ is not just a slogan, it‘s an economic imperative,” Graves said.

AUCTION SECTION and MARKET REPORTS BENCHMARK MILK PRICE DROPS $1.04 Could Selling Dead Corn Stalks Help?
Issued Nov. 4, 2011 The Agriculture Department announced the October Federal order
Class III benchmark milk price Friday at $18.03 per hundredweight, down $1.04 from Sep-
tember, $1.09 above October 2010, and equates to about $1.55 per gallon. The decline pulled
the 2011 Class III average to $18.25, up from $14.36 at this time a year ago and an anemic $10.72 in 2009. The Class IV price is $18.41, down $1.12 from September, but $1.26 above a year ago. The NASS cheese price averaged $1.7471 per pound, down 11.2 cents from September. Butter averaged $1.7893, down 19.9 cents. Nonfat dry milk averaged $1.5109, down 3.3 cents, and dry whey averaged 61.52 cents, up 2.3 cents. The November Class III futures contract was trading late Friday morning at $18.89 and December at $18.40, which would result in a 2011 average of $18.32, up from $14.41 in 2010 and $11.36 in 2009. California’s October 4b cheese milk price was $15.78 per cwt., down 55 cents from September, but 12 cents above October 2010, and $2.25 below the comparable Federal order Class III price. The 4b price has trailed the Federal order Class for 13 months, ranging this year from a low of 8 cents in February to a high of $3.07 in August. The Golden State’s 4b price average now stands at $16.41 but is still $3.15 above the level at this time a year ago. The 4a butter-powder price is $18.29, down a dollar from September but $1.64 above a year ago. Its 2011 average now stands at $19.15, up $4.48 from 2010. Cash cheese saw some holiday strength for the third week in a row. The blocks closed the first Friday in November at $1.88 per pound, up 10 3/4-cents on the week, and 40 cents above that week a year ago. Good demand for barrel pushed the price above the blocks, to $1.92, up 15 1/4-cents on the week, and 41 cents
above a year ago. Only five cars of block traded hands on the week and six of barrel. The NASSsurveyed U.S. average block price slipped a half-cent to $1.7226 and barrel averaged $1.7411, down 0.1 cent. Cash butter headed down Friday, reversing four weeks of gains, and closed the week at $1.8325, down 4 3/4cents, and strangely 4 3/4-cents below a year ago when it plunged 30 1/2-cents on the week for no real clear discernable reason. Sales for Halloween week amounted to eight carloads. NASS butter averaged $1.8290, up 2 1/2cents. NASS nonfat dry milk averaged $1.4872, down a penny, and dry whey averaged 62.38 cents, up 0.3 cent. Milk is being channeled to the churn and the dryer. September butter production was reported at 138 million pounds, up 3.5 percent from August, and a whopping 21 percent above October 2010, according to USDA’s latest Dairy Products report. Nonfat dry milk and skim milk powder output totaled 139.5 million pounds, up 10 percent from a year ago. American type cheese output, at 337 million pounds, was down 3.2 percent from August, and 4.2 percent below a year ago. Total cheese production hit 867 million pounds, down 0.2 percent from August, and 0.6 percent below a year ago. I wrote about declining fluid milk sales last week but this week we learned that June to August sales were off 1.5 percent from a year ago, according to USDA and California data. August sales were up 0.9 percent but it’s only the second positive month in

Mielke from B1 the last 21, according to the CME’s Daily Dairy Report (DDR). Year-todate sales were down 1.5 percent from last year and down 2.9 percent from two years ago. Switching to the export picture; the DDR reported that China only imported 15.4 million pounds of whole milk powder (WMP) in September, the smallest figure in almost three years. June to September imports were down 43 percent from the prior year. From January 2010 to May 2011, China imported 69.7 million pounds of WMP per month, but that pace dropped significantly this summer, leaving New Zealand suppliers to find other markets for their products, the DDR said. Speaking of the world market; Global Dairy Trade auction prices were down on most products in the November 1 auction, while skim milk prices were flat, according to the DDR. The weighted average price was $1.49 per pound, up 0.2 percent from the October 18 auction. SMP from the U.S. (Dairy America) averaged $1.44 per pound for December delivery and $1.43 for January delivery. Anhydrous milk fat dropped 9.3 percent, to
$1.50 per pound, and Cheddar cheese for industrial use fell 3.2 percent, to $1.54. The weighted average price for whole milk powder was $1.58 per pound, down 0.8 percent. Back home, USDA reports that milk production continues to be at the seasonal low point in the Northeast and MidAtlantic. Milk volumes in the mid to upper Midwest are steady to slightly lower. Milk components are rebounding to near annual peaks. California is mostly steady to slightly higher and at levels above a year ago. Milk production in New Mexico is tending to flatten out at current levels. Most of the growth in production is in the western states, according to University of Wisconsin Emeritus Professor Bob Cropp in Tuesday’s DairyLine. Texas was up substantially, he said, while California slowed some due to output per cow being down as high feed and hay prices and lower milk prices took their toll. He also believes the growth in cow numbers has slowed so, if milk production gains stay around 1.5 percent or less, milk prices might be a little stronger than the futures are portending,

the high $16s, maybe the low $17s, he said. Cropp admits prices could be stronger as some predict but the market is “very sensitive.” He listed some positive developments; the new free trade agreements with South Korea, Panama, and Columbia; South Korea particularly. The truck dispute with Mexico has been resolved and cheese tariffs were removed. Stronger exports and holding production in check prices could mean stronger milk prices than we’re now forecasting, Cropp concluded.
Offshore the New Zealand season continues strong, with milk deliveries still running about 4-5 percent above year ago levels and Australian milk receipts are around peak levels, and if not now, within the next few weeks. The forecast continues for increased milk production for the current season but not nearly as optimistic as New Zealand. The September U.S. Consumer Price Index for all food is 230.6, up 4.7 percent from September 2010, according to the latest data. The

dairy products index is 219.4, up 10.2 percent from a year ago. Fresh whole milk is was up 13 percent; cheese, up 10.2 percent; and butter, up 9.2 percent. Commercial disappearance of dairy products in the first eight months of 2011 totaled 131.2 billion pounds, 1.2 percent above the same period in 2010. Butter was up 10.9 percent; American cheese, up 0.8 percent; other cheese, up 4.7 percent; NDM, down 3.1 percent, and fluid milk products, were off 1.5 percent.
Meanwhile, the bottom line isn’t improving on the farm. Profitability declined for the third month in a row as milk prices fell faster than feed costs. The Agriculture Department’s latest Ag Prices report pegged the October All-Milk price at an estimated at $19.90 per cwt., down $1.20 from September. The cost of feed to produce 100 pounds of milk was $11.12, down just 35 cents from September. Corn dropped 45 cents, to $5.92 per

bushel, and soybeans lost 30 cents, slipping to $11.90. Alfalfa hay jumped $7, to $203 per ton, and that left income over feed costs of $8.78 per cwt., down 85 cents from September. The DDR points out that, over the last 10 years, the IOFC averaged $9.09 per cwt. Bill Van Dam, of California’s Alliance of Western Milk Producers, gave some perspective on whey in his recent newsletter, writing that “In a very interesting switch, dry whey prices in the U.S. are higher than prices in the export
trade. However, marketers of dry whey understand that it is important to maintain market share and, for now, are willing to sell to the export market at prices below what they can get from domestic markets. This imbalance cannot last very long, he said, and prices will equalize at some point. Prices in Europe have in the past two weeks already increased 4.5 cents. It is also interesting to note that lactose prices are very strong and are now 8 to 9 cents higher than dry whey,” he wrote. In dairy politics; we
learned of a new study from two dairy economists, reported in Wednesday’s DairyLine by Jerry Slomionski, Senior Vice President, Legislative and Economics at the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA). Slominiski reported that the study was conducted by Charles Nicholson of Cal Poly and Mark Stephenson of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who did the economic modeling for National Milk’s original Foundation for the Future plan. “Nicholson and Stephenson have looked
at the latest proposal, introduced in Congress by Representative Collin Peterson as the Dairy Security Act (DSA), and found that it will have some very eye opening results,” Slominski said. “The economists say one of their original findings remains consistent: milk price volatility would be substantially reduced under the proposed plan,” Slominski admitted, “But that reduced volatility comes at a price for dairy farmers: significantly lower farm milk prices and lower net farm income across all sizes of dairy farms.” He
said this new look suggests the reforms could lower the U.S. all-milk price by 92 cents per hundredweight and lower cumulative net farm operating income 32 percent to 48 percent. He also quoted a press release from the Professional Dairy Business Association in Wisconsin, where one of the authors concluded that “the proposal would cause small farms to leave the dairy industry at a faster pace than without the program.” For more details, log on to www.dairy.wisc.edu. A National Milk press
release questioned the “selective and simplistic interpretation of new dairy legislation by organizations opposed to the Dairy Security Act.” At issue are government costs of the program and speculation as to how many dairy producers would participate in DSA’s safety net provisions. National Milk CEO Jerry Kozak said “these contrary findings clearly illustrate the challenges associated with simplistic attempts to communicate results from complex economic modeling,” adding that “assump-

Cornell Cooperative Extensions (CCE) Lewis, Oneida, Otsego, and Schoharie Counties are pleased to offer Annie’s Project for a second year in New York State. Annie’s Project is an exciting agricultural risk management education program aimed at empowering women in agriculture to become savvy business leaders and partners in today’s farming industry. Enrollment is now open for this innovative course scheduled to begin Jan. 12, 2012. The registration deadline is Monday, Dec. 12. Annie’s Project is a six-week course designed to empower farm women to
manage today’s technology based information systems used in critical agricultural decision making processes, and will help participants build a network of support in their communities and across the state. The target audience is farm women with a passion for business and involvement. Sessions will be held at all four CCE locations listed above and will combine lecture, discussion, individual and small group activities, and software training. Five areas of agricultural risk management; production, marketing, financial, legal (estate planning), and human re-
sources, are covered through a combination of featured presenters through an interactive communications system and discussion leaders from the local communities at each location. This program will begin Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012, and run six consecutive Thursdays through Feb. 16, 2012, each three-hour session from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., including a one-hour lunch period to network with colleagues. Class sizes are limited. A preregistration fee of $50 per person is required. Fee includes all course materials, handouts, and lunch.
To register, for more information, or to help sponsor this important program, please call one of the following project leaders at the Cornell Cooperative Extension association closest to you: Margaret Murray at CCE Lewis County, 315-376-5270; Bonnie Collins at CCE Oneida County, 315-736-3394 (x104), Amy Chamberlain at CCE Otsego County, 607-547-2536, or David Cox at CCE Schoharie County, 518234-4303.

Mielke from B3 tions about how producers will respond to the program is highly uncertain.” See www.nmpf.org for more details. Top executives of six of the country’s biggest dairy exporters have written members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction expressing opposition to the DSA. They outlined
what they consider to be the “negative effects the act would have on domestic and global dairy markets,” according to an IDFA press release, and said it has no place in deficit-reduction talks. The bill is expected to be part of the recommendations submitted by House and Senate Agriculture Committee lead-
ers to the supercommittee for inclusion in the debt-reduction bill. In another news item this week the IDFA and Organic Trade Association (OTA) declared victory after the state of Ohio agreed to drop its regulations for so-called “absence claims” on dairy product labels. Dairy

DENNISON FARMS & DENN-E-DALE FARMS LLC EQUIPMENT AUCTION
Profit Weekly editor Dave Natzke reported in Friday’s DairyLine that the action comes more than three years after those organizations filed a lawsuit against a 2008 regulation covering milk and dairy products labeled as rbST -or bovine growth hormone-free. A lower court initially upheld Ohio’s labeling requirements but a three-judge panel in the Sixth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of IDFA and OTA in 2010. The organizations
claimed the labeling rule requirements violated dairy processors’ First Amendment rights and consumers’ rights to know regarding food production. Proponents of the rule said the labels implied product quality or safety differences which did not exist. I have often read about and even written about the gap between “city slickers” and “country folk” but that gap was greatly evidenced to me this week as I visited a local nursery in town

Bull-related fatalities and injuries by James Carrabba, The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine & Health — NYCAMH A recent agricultural injury surveillance project conducted by the Purdue University Agricultural Safety and Health Program has identified 287 cases of bull attacks on people or property during the years 1987 to 2008. Of these 287 cases, 261 were attacks on people, 14 were vehicle collisions caused by escaped bulls (three of these were fatalities), and 12 were bull attacks on property (stationary vehicles, homes, and a shed). Of the 261 attacks on people, 149 (57 percent) re-
sulted in fatalities. The age range of the victims was from three to 91 years old, with the average age being 56 years. Bulls are only two percent of the total cattle population but are the number one cause of fatalities among people who handle livestock. Also, given the relatively low hours of exposure to bulls, they may actually pose a greater risk of injury or death than other types of more widely recognized farm hazards, such as tractors and machinery, where exposure time is greater. The authors of this project noted that historically, dairy bulls seem to be the most aggressive type of bull and have contributed to most of
the attacks. As young calves, dairy bulls are usually bottle-fed and as a consequence will imprint with people. Thus, when older, they will try to exert dominance over people, not cattle. Livestock specialists recommend that young bulls be raised with other cattle so that they identify with other cattle and not people. Also, in the interest of safety, many feel that bulls are no longer an acceptable component on dairy farms. One livestock specialist remarked that, “the only safe bull is the one in your A.I. breeding gun.” On farms that decide to keep bulls, there are very important items to consider. Number one is to never trust any bull. In this surveillance project, it was found that overconfidence on the part of the bull handler contributed to a large number of the attacks. Many of the victims that were familiar with the bull were completely caught
off guard by the bull’s behavior, such as in incidents involving bulls that were raised from birth and handled on a daily basis. Many experts believe that bulls under two years of age are the least likely to be aggressive towards people. After the age of two, bulls are much more likely to challenge people and to assert dominance. It is very important to be able to read a bull’s body language. Bulls may exhibit certain behaviors that are threat displays. These postures and stances include: • A broadside stance with the bull’s head down and the hair on its back standing up. • Direct threat stance, where the bull stands head-on with its head lowered, shoulders hunched and neck curved toward the object of its aggression. • Bulls may show a display of aggression by pawing the ground with its forefeet plus rubbing

or horning the ground with its head. • Vocal sounds such as snorting and flaring of the bull’s nostrils. Keep in mind that bulls are truly unpredictable and cases have shown that they may not exhibit any of these warning signs prior to an attack. For farms that choose to keep bulls, these are
some recommended safety guidelines: • To prevent aggressive behavior in mature bulls, bull calves should never be teased, played with, treated roughly, or rubbed vigorously in the forehead and area of the horns. This could lead to aggressive behaviors

Discuss vaccine choices with your herd veterinarian to help ensure complete protection Not all vaccines are created equal, and the myriad of choices can be confusing. Your veterinarian is the best resource to help you sort through product information and make sciencebased vaccine recommendations to provide complete protection for your
herd. If your cattle aren’t fully protected against respiratory and reproductive diseases, your herd’s health, productivity and profitability could be at risk. “Vaccines need to be carefully assessed and chosen to ensure your dairy operation isn’t in danger of a dis-
ease outbreak,” says Greg Edwards, DVM, Cattle Technical Services, Pfizer Animal Health. “The investment you make in selecting the right disease prevention products also can help reduce the significant costs and labor associated with disease treatment.”
Dr. Edwards suggests sitting down with your veterinarian to evaluate vaccines based on eight areas of product differentiation and pick vaccines that best fit your management needs and vaccination program goals.
Safety from B10 when the bull is mature. • Dairy bulls should be housed in strong, secure facilities. Escape routes and man-passes should
be built into the facilities. • Have a separate breeding pen when bringing heifers and cows to a bull.
• Do not enter a bull pen unless the bull is restrained. The safest facilities are designed so that handlers can care for the
bull without having to be in the pen with it. • Never work alone with a bull. • Avoid sudden or
noisy could • If never move
movements which spook the bull. cornered by a bull, run from him, but away quietly and
Factors B13 slowly while watching him. • Carry a cane, stick or other large object that will make you appear larger to the bull. • Any bull that acts threatening or attacks a person should be immediately culled for slaughter purposes. They should not be sold at general auctions where they could end up in other herds and potentially injure the new owner or handler. Agitated bulls are likely to attack again, so first responders to a bull attack need to be wary. Rescuers will use large equipment or vehicles as a barrier between the victim and the bull. Bulls can jump over power-take-off (PTO) shafts and wagon tongues, so be cautious if using this combination of equipment as a barrier. In a few documented cases, emergency responders reported bulls being very possessive of the injured victim preventing them from approaching. In a few of these situations, the bull stood over the victim and had to be euthanized in order for the rescuers to reach the victim and administer aid. In one case, a bull dragged the deceased victim by the belt away from the rescuers. It is clear that mature bulls are unpredictable and, if they are handled improperly, can be deadly.

1. Label indications and levels of protection: The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) grants label claims based on demonstrated efficacy for each disease organism in the vaccine. These levels of protection include: Prevention of Infection, Prevention of Disease, Aids in Disease Prevention, Aids in Disease Control and Other Claims. 2. Duration of immunity: Duration of immunity (DOI) is the minimum amount of time you can expect a vaccine to help protect your cattle, based on manufac-

turer efficacy and disease challenge studies. A vaccine’s DOI should help protect during the critical risk period for disease risk. Your veterinarian can help schedule revaccination protocols according to your vaccines’ DOI. 3. Immune response time: Some types of vaccines stimulate protective immunity more rapidly than others. For example, intranasal vaccines can help provide a quick immune response. 4. Modified-live virus vs. killed virus vaccines: Modified-live virus (MLV) vaccines contain live organisms that can undergo limited replication within the body. MLV vaccines can have benefits including rapid immune response, comprehensive immune response and duration of immunity, and few postvaccination reactions. 5. Route of administration: Follow the route of administration indicated on the label to help achieve the expected efficacy of the vaccine. Your vaccine choice and preferred route of administration may depend on your management capabilities, and training your employees on administration may be necessary. 6. Safe for use in pregnant cows and calves nursing cows: Choose vaccines that are safe for
use during pregnancy to help bolster immunity of the cow and enhance colostrum quality. Having flexibility to revaccinate cows during gestation provides protection against viral shedding and supports herd immunity. 7. Convenience: Vaccines come in a variety of combinations that can be tailored to fit your disease challenges and management needs. Your veterinarian can help you identify disease risks based on herd history or geographic challenges. When choosing combination vaccines, remember that DOI and levels of protection may be different for each antigen in the vaccine. 8. Cost-effectiveness: Profitability on the operation is important, and cost-effectiveness is always a factor in product selection. Work with your veterinarian to discuss factors that impact a cost-effective vaccine, including management time and labor for administration, vaccine combinations, levels of protection, duration of immunity, cost of a potential disease outbreak, and price. Partner with your veterinarian to select vaccines that provide complete protection for your cattle and optimal results for your operation.
