Emma Andrew crowned New York State Dairy Princess

by Pat Malin LIVERPOOL, NY — It’s deja vu for the well-known Andrew sisters of Wayne County. Continuing a long family tradition associated with the New York State Dairy Princess pageant, Emma Andrew was declared the 2012-13 winner during the 49th annual ceremony on Feb. 21 at the Holiday Inn outside Syracuse. Andrew, 18, was so overwhelmed by hugs from friends and her large, extended family, she barely had time to breathe after accepting the crown from outgoing princess Madeline Kuhlman. As the youngest of six sisters who have all participated in previous pageants, Andrew admitted that she had to live up to their expectations. However, she has seemingly been groomed for this position. Taking into account her family’s support and armed with considerable experience (she has been involved in dairy promotion 10 years, longer than any other contestant), she became the first Andrew sister to actually win the crown. “I was nervous,” she said following the ceremony and after an extensive round of photographs. “After they announced my name, I was surprised. I felt a lot of pressure being the last (sister) to compete, but my sisters were my inspiration. If not for Katy, I don’t know if I would have ever had this experience.” Katy, 25, is the eldest in the family of eight children of George and Colleen Andrew of Newark, not far from Rochester. Then there’s Hannah, 24, and Abbey, 23. Abbey was named second alternate in 2009-10. Rounding out the family are 20-year-old twins Sarah and Rebecca and brothers, George, 8, and William, 7.

Andrew said her father has been involved with farming for about 20 years. Four families operate the 2,300acre crop and dairy farm with its 900 milking cows. Alexandra Ormond of Chautauqua County was chosen first alternate and Haley Groat of Delaware County was named second alternate. The new princess and court came from a field of seven semifinalists who were graded over two days by a panel of judges during personal interviews, speech competition, written communication, product knowledge, appearance and personality. Dairy princesses from 19 of New York’s 62 counties participated this year. Princesses from New Jersey and Pennsylvania also traveled to Liverpool to observe the proceedings. The Dairy Princess contest is sponsored by the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council Inc. (ADADC), which offers a $1,200 scholarship to the winner and smaller awards to the semifinalists. ADADC is a non-profit corporation that is funded and directed by dairy farmers’ check-off dollars for the purpose of increasing sales of and demand for dairy products. Andrew said her sisters provided invaluable advice “on hair, clothes, skills competition, and everything.” She is a freshman at SUNY Geneseo with a double major in Communications and Spanish. She is also a member of the Junior Holstein Association. Her eventual goal, she added, is to work in agricultural communications. Any doubts about her abilities as a princess must have been shattered during the two days of competition. A tall blonde, Andrew gave a particularly strong performance in the sponta-

neous question event on Tuesday evening, Feb. 21. Master of ceremonies Dale Sweetland asked each of the seven semifinalists the same question. Andrew went first while the other semifinalists were sequestered in another room. “A family from New York City has moved into your neighborhod. What would you share with them about your farm?” Sweetland asked. “I would share the passion of farming,” Andrew responded, thoughtfully. “I would show them the cows and how we’re saving the environment with our methane digesting; how we care for our cows, that the dairy industry is not about money, but raising your family. I would tell them about the nutritional value of milk, the essential vitamins it contains. And it tastes good! I would also share our cheese with them.” The semifinalists in addition to Andrew were Kristy Alexander (Tioga County); Haley Groat (Delaware); Marilyn Lamb (Rennselaer); Jennifer Hula (Herkimer); Mary Burgett (Onondaga) and Alexandra Ormond (Chautaugua). The judges were Jessica Armacost, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Dairy Princess and Promotion Program; Michelle Easterly, Director of Nutrition Education, New York Beef Industry Council, and Dave Weaver, President, New York State Dairy of Distinction. “(Andrew’s) speech really came from the heart,” said Armacost. Richard Naczi, CEO of New York ADADC, based in Syracuse, is very familiar with the Andrew sisters’ history. “I’ve worked with the sisters in the past in the county pageant and in the

state pageant, and at the farm shows on nutrition programs,” he said. The three finalists in the Written Communication Award were Abbie Tebor (Tompkins), Sylvie Choiniere (Franklin) and Kristy Alexander (Tioga). Andrew was one of three finalists in the Product Knowledge Award. The others were Kassandra Johnston (Wyoming) and Marilyn Lamb (Rennselaer). Mary Burgett (Onondaga) was named Miss Congeniality. Last year’s court and princess were not forgotten, though. The 2010-11 first alternate, Kaitlyn Guptill (Onondaga) received the Robert S. Turner Dairy Promoter of the Year award. She and her court presented 292 school programs, attended four farm meetings and published 26 newspaper articles. Shortly before the winner was announced, Kuhlman gave her farewell speech. “In the past year, I traveled to places I have never heard of and met all kinds of important people,” she said. “Being a farmer myself, I can’t tell you how much it meant to me. Each day I wake up and thank God that we can live the lifestyle we wish. I hope you girls realize that each day as we struggle to keep our farms running.” Kuhlman is focused now on her upcoming graduation from Tioga Central School. When asked if she had any advice for her successor, she commented, “Work hard and smile every chance you get.” With her sisters looking on in admiration, it’s inevitable that Emma Andrew will do just that.


by Katie Navarra “Utility expenses are one of the biggest challenges farmers face,” said Art Whitman, President of the Northeast Ag and Feed Alliance. Renewable energy sources can be one way for farm owners to dramatically reduce their operating expenses. With an increased emphasis locally and nationally on renewable energy alternatives, tax credits and incentives offered by organizations like the New York State Energy Research and

Development Authority (NYSERDA) and state/federal government agencies make alternative energy sources an attractive option. Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is one option for farmers interested in alternative energy. PV technology captures sunlight and converts it into useable energy. Solar energy can be considered a direct energy offset because it collects and uses energy generated by the sun without the need of additional electricity from an outside source to

Barber Brothers, a dairy in Schulyerville, NY recently had solar panels installed. Steel racking can be attached to poles buried in the ground or be secured to rooftops.

In memoriam Carl J. Nasse Jr., 89, of Palatine Nursing Home and formally of Mapletown Road, Canajoharie passed away on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012. The only son of Carl and Katherine Jones Nasse, Carl was born on April 19, 1922 on the family farm in Mapletown, where he lived for 81 years before moving to Arkell Center Apartments in Canajoharie. He attended Canajoharie schools where he excelled as a math student. Carl was a member of the Cornerstone Baptist Church in Ames, NY. Carl operated the family farm for 36 years and later worked for Lee Publications as their Circulation Manager and was a member of their tradeshows team. Carl was very active in several area organizations. He was a former member of the Ames Fire Department, Mapletown Grange, the Farm Bureau, Cross Trails Square Dance Club, Dairymen’s League, Mapletown Cemetery Association, and was a member of the Fonda Fair Board. Carl married Iva Jean Jackson, who survives, on April 7, 1945. He is also survived by his children, Gretchen Wadsworth of Charlton, NY, Carlajean Nasse (Al Braithwaite) of Oldsmar, FL, Paul Nasse (Terra L ynn) of

Organic farmers discuss strategies for weed management by Jennifer Wagester On Feb. 14, the second of three New York Certified Organic meetings was held in Jordan Hall at the NYS Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, NY. The discussion topic was organic weed management. About 34 participants attended the meeting, while an additional 18 logged on via the internet. Fay Benson, Cornell Cooperative Extension Cortland

County Small Farms Educator and NY Organic Dairy Initiative contact, welcomed the group. Fay serves as a member of the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets Crop Insurance Education Team. As insurance is an important risk management tool for farmers, Fay led with an overview of crop insurance, highlighting important dates and changes for 2012.

Klaas Martens (right) shares his farming experience during the group discussion.

Last year was the first year organic crops were added to the federal crop insurance program. The five percent surcharge initially put into place for organic coverage has been dropped for 2012. Organic corn, soybeans, processing tomatoes, and cotton may be covered. Important dates for 2012 are March 15: Sale Closing Date, June 16: Final Planting Date, July 15: Acreage Report Due, and Aug. 15: Payment /Invoice Released. Chuck Mohler then spoke to the group. Dr. Mohler is a Senior Research Associate for the Cornell University Crop and Soil Sciences Department. He has been conducting weed science research at Cornell since 1983. His latest research project, accomplished with the help of graduate student Neith Little, provides important insight into organic weed management. While studying the impact organic nutrient amendments have on

weeds, it was observed that crops reach a maximum yield at moderate rates of compost while weed growth continues to increase even at very high rates. Thus, weeds can utilize the additional nutrients compost provides to reach gigantic proportions. This was also seen as a residual effect, when in year four, no compost was added and weeds continued to achieve large sizes while corn growth did not increase. In another study, compost (Kreyer’s poultry litter) and manufactured organic fertilizers were compared. The compost test plots showed an increase in weed growth while those fertilized with a mixture of blood meal, bone char, and potassium sulfate did not. It is not known specifically what is causing the difference in weed growth between compost and manufactured fertilizers. Research suggests that it is not linked to soil health, such as an increase in organic matter, and that phosphorus levels may be a contributing factor. Dr. Mohler’s research findings mean farms using composted manure as their main fertilizer source will likely experience intense weed pressure. Large weeds compete with crops for water and light. They also produce a significant amount of seeds, which increases the amount of weed seed in the soil bed. Penn Yan, NY, farmer Peter Martens provided an overview of the different equipment options and strategies farmers can use to combat weeds. Peter farms about 1,400 acres in conjunction with his father Klaas. Their strategy is to help crops stay ahead of the weeds and eventually crowd them out. Prior to planting, the soil bed is prepared. A moldboard plow or disk

is used and followed by a disk, drag, or field cultivator. To give crops a great start, the planter is carefully calibrated to ensure optimum planting depth, seed singulation, and fertilizer placement. Tine weeding takes place before crops emerge from the soil and weeds reach their second leaf. When weather conditions are wet, tines are set to bury the weeds. If it is dry, weeds are brought to the surface to expose their roots. A variety of tines are available. The 45 degree tine is the most general. It can be used to bury weeds or expose roots. An 85 degree tine is used for taproot crops, such as soybeans. For row crops, the first cultivation is done when crops achieve as much growth as possible before weeds are one inch tall. A second cultivation is then done if weeds reach two inches in height or before the crop becomes too tall. In some cases, the crop will grow well and a second cultivation

is not necessary. After Peter’s presentation, the participants shared a potluck luncheon before discussing specific weed management issues at their farms. During the discussion, using clean seed and sound crop rotations to reduce weed pressure was stressed. Klaas Martens was on hand to provide examples of crop rotations that have worked well on his farm. During the meeting it was announced that Sam Sherman of Champlain Valley Milling in Westport, NY, is looking for 15,000 bushels of organic small grains this fall. Sam is trying to fill the request of a large grocer interested in providing baked goods made with locally grown organic flour. For the past 10 years, New York Certified Organic has been hosting farmer discussion group meetings on topics relevant to growing and marketing organic field crops in New York State.

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin Approximately 100 people from Otsego, Chenango, Delaware, Herkimer, Schoharie, Fulton and Montgomery Counties were among those attending the 2012 Central NY Corn Day, which took place at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown on Feb. 14. Certificates for pesticide recertification credits were given to 57 certified pesticide applicators at the event. Speakers presented information on several topics of interest to crop farmers, including an update on the Chesapeake Bay Watershed with speaker Aaron Ristow, Agricultural Coordinator of the Upper Susquehanna Coalition. Ristow reminded attendees that an Executive Order, signed by President Barack Obama in 2009, recognized the Chesapeake Bay as a national treasure. This order empowered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set a demanding timetable for federal and state governments to drastically reduce pollutants flowing into the Bay. This order also gives the EPA enforcement authority if established goals are not met. Agriculture is believed to be a major contributor of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) in the watershed. Nineteen counties in New York State comprise one of the seven jurisdictions where pollution controls are to be in place by 2025 — with 60 percent of that implementation to be documented in place by 2017. Primarily, Allegany, Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Livingston, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins and Yates counties are affected in New York State. This area is equivalent to 7,500 square miles and affects approximately 650,000 people. The EPA expects each

A floor price is needed under falling milk prices Several National and multi-state organizations have sent a letter to all members of the United States Congress urging them to place a floor price of $20 per cwt (hundredweight) under all milk used for manufacturing dairy products. The $20 price will be a temporary price until a permanent dairy bill is written that will give dairy farmers the real price they deserve. The National Family Farm Coalition, the National Farmers Union, the National Dairy Producers Organization, and the food and water organizations are some of the National organizations that are spear-heading the efforts to achieve the $20 price. The National Farmers Organization supports the $20 price, but they feel we need a supply management program to go with the $20 price. I whole-heartedly agree with NFO, and the milk supply management program in S-1640 (The Federal Milk Marketing Improvement Act of 2011 would be something to work for). However, for the present time let’s go for the $20 floor price. Several multi-state organizations like Pro-Ag, Family Farm Defenders, ARMPA, several local Granges in Pennsylvania, and many others have signed onto the letter. In my opinion we can’t sit around and watch prices paid to dairymen drop anywhere near the level of 2009. Remember the average price paid to dairy farmers in Federal Order #1 was $13.01 per cwt (hundred weight) in 2009. According to USDA figures the all

milk price in 2009 was $12.80 per hundred-weight. Again, according to the USDA’s figures the average cost of producing milk in 2009 was $22.28 per hundred weight. When you subtract the all milk price of $12.80 from the average cost of production, then the figures are very clear. The loss to the average dairy farm was $9.40 per hundred weight. The USDA figures indicate the total amount of milk produced and marketed in 2009 was 189.3 Billion pounds which illustrated a total loss to dairy farmers of 17.8 Billion dollars. (This only indicated the losses and not anything towards a profit). These are astronomical losses. I hope all dairy farmers and organizations will support the efforts of all these fine organizations that want to prevent the losses that dairy farmers will be experiencing in 2012. To further illustrate the potential losses to the American dairy farmer; the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) latest estimates for the future prices for cheese are: February $16.10 per hundred weight March $15.54 April $15.70 Of course these figures are subject to change. However, there certainly is the possibility of the all milk price (across the United States) going under $16 per hundred weight (cwt). Everyone should join in and help to prevent the bloodbath that is on its way. I can be reached at 570-833-5776. Arden Tewksbury, Progressive Agriculture Organization, Meshoppen, PA

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Hedged In On Feb. 27 Mark Kastel e-mailed me his article, headlined: “Judge Ridicules Farmers’ Right to Grow Food without Genetic Contamination.” Kastel is senior farm policy analyst for The Cornucopia Institute, a lobby group dedicated to the fight for economic justice for the familyscale farming community. Cornucopia’s Organic Integrity Project is a corporate watchdog, fighting to protect the credibility of organic farming methods and the right of those producers to receive a reasonable profit. According to Kastel, a decision by Federal Judge Naomi Buchwald on Feb. 24... handed down in New York City... brought great disappointment to the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGTA). However, Buchwald’s decision served to rekindle the resolve of OSGTA in the battle against runaway proliferation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Aligned with OSGTA are thousands of organic farmers, seed growers and agricultural organizations. Daniel Ravicher, lead attorney for the 81 plaintiffs represented in the lawsuit, said, regarding Judge Buchwald, “her decision to deny farmers the right to seek legal protection

(Contact: renrock46@hotmail.com)

from one of the world’s foremost patent bullies is gravely disappointing.” It is the judge’s opinion that farmers are acting unreasonably as they no longer grow certain crops, just to avoid being sued by huge corporations for patent infringement. Ravicher contends that it is Buchwald who is unreasonable. This lawyer stresses that the plaintiffs have the right to proceed to the Court of Appeals, which will review the matter, uninfluenced by Buchwald’s decision. According to Kastel, large biotech corporations historically have powerfully defended their intellectual property central to their patented life forms. Such defense has included aggressive investigations and lawsuits brought against farmers in America. The threat of this courtroom drama... and its expenses... has been a major concern for organic and non-GMO agricultural producers since the first such lawsuit in the mid-1990s. Since then, 144 farmers have been sued by huge agricultural corporations for alleged violations of their patented seed technology. Seven-hundred additional farmers have settled out-ofcourt rather than face well-paid, skilled attor-

neys hired by Fortune 500 litigants. Most of these farmers never intended to grow or save seeds that contain corporately patented genes. Seed contamination and pollen drift from genetically engineered crops often migrate to neighboring fields. If this novel seed technology is found on a farmer’s land without a contract, the farmer can be found liable for patent infringement. This scenario resembles one in which a burglar sues a homeowner after tripping over a roller-skate, while committing a robbery. “Family farmers need the protection of the

court”, said Maine organic seed farmer Jim Gerritsen, President of the OSGTA, the lead plaintiff. The plaintiffs brought the suit against the biotech giants so as to seek judicial protection from such lawsuits, as well as challenge the validity of corporate patents on seeds. Kastel goes even further by saying, “The purpose of our lawsuit is to preemptively challenge (the corporations’) reign of intimidation over organic farmers, and others, who have chosen not to jump on their genetically engineered bandwagon.” Organic crop people have two main reasons to create a wide boundary between their crops and those that are genetically engineered: first, the National Organic Program mandates that “buffer zones” separate organic cropland from

non-organic; second, plants of the same genus as nearby GMO crops will likely cross-pollinate with those GMO crops, resulting in hybrids that will test positive for genetic engineering. An organic grower, thus contaminated, is at risk for being decertified (organically), as well as being sued by biotech counsel. Thus, more land must be forfeited from organic production, becoming a buffer zone for these two reasons. In effect this buffer zone fences in the non-GMO crop person, almost making that person captive on his or her own land. “Seeds are the memory of life,” said Isaura Anduluz of plaintiff Cuatro Puertas in New Mexico. “If planted and saved annually, cross pollination ensures the seeds continue to adapt. In the Southwest, selection

over many, many generations has resulted in native drought tolerant corn. Now that a patented drought tolerant corn has been released, how do we protect our seeds from contamination and our right to farm?” Judge Buchwald’s decision, should the Court of Appeals allow it to stand, foretells a tremendous loss of freedom to farm as one sees fit. It’s a stretch, but I see a similarity between the overly close ties between large agricultural corporations’ influence on our regulatory bodies, and the government structure in colonial India. I take liberty to discuss India, since my daughter -in-law was born and raised in that country. Her father, eight years older than me, had the privilege,

as a young boy, of meeting Mohandas Gandhi at a political rally. Sometimes I tell people that I shook the hand of someone who shook Gandhi’s hand... a fact which, along with 85 cents, will buy a senior coffee at the Golden Arches. A landmark in recent Indian history

is Gandhi’s march to the sea, for the purpose of harvesting salt from the briny surf. The famed march was an act of civil disobedience to the British who maintained economic control over millions of people for almost three centuries. In the marketing and taxation of this vital nutrient lay al-

most absolute power. In 1804, the British monopolized salt in newly conquered Indian territory. The Brits lent money to the locals to finance further salt production. As a result, the local workers became debtors of the British and were virtually brought down to the level of slaves. To better control the economics of salt commerce, a “customs line” was established throughout India. In the 1840s, a thorn fence was erected along western coastal regions so as to prevent smuggling of salt. By 1857, the thorn fence grew to be 2,500 miles long all along India’s eastern coastal regions. A customs line was established, which stretched across the whole of India, a distance of 2,300 miles, guarded by over 12,000 soldiers. Customs lines consisted of immense impenetrable hedges of thorny trees and bushes, supplemented by

stone wall and ditches, across which no human being or beast of burden or vehicle could pass without being subject to detention or search. Gandhi’s successful non-violent salt march took place in 1930. Following the salt march and World War II, Britain granted India independence. Gandhi only enjoyed a few months of national freedom, as an assassin’s bullet claimed him in early 1948. What would Gandhi say about the concept of intellectual property? That question is at least partially answered by Indian citizens who practice civil disobedience against multi-national biotech giants conducting GMO crop research behind serious fences. Those fences aren’t made from super thorny bushes, as was common decades ago, but I like to think that somewhere Gandhi is smiling.

ASA touts biodiesel, biobased successes in comments to Senate Agriculture Committee In comments submitted Feb. 15, the American Soybean Association (ASA) pointed to the record-setting production of biodiesel from American soy, as well as the success of biobased products before a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing on the energy component of the upcoming Farm Bill. The hearing, “Energy & Economic Growth for Rural America,” is the first of four convened by Committee Chairman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in an effort to make progress on the legislation in the last months of the 112th Congress. ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, NE, pointed to Farm Bill energy programs that have a direct and

tangible impact on the soybean industry — namely the Biodiesel Fuel Education Program and the Biobased Market Program. “The Biodiesel Education Program plays a vital role in helping expand marketplace acceptance and use of biodiesel as a low-carbon, renewable diesel replacement fuel,” stated Wellman. “It supports technical outreach efforts to engine manufacturers, truckers, and fuel marketers that will eventually allow the use of higher biodiesel blends in conventional diesel applications. The education program serves to expand and increase market penetration, thus promoting growth for the entire industry. This translates

into higher production, more jobs, and more economic value, especially in rural communities.” Wellman pointed to the industry’s record production in 2011 as evidence of biodiesel’s impact on and pertinence to the nation’s energy discussion. Last year, the biodiesel industry produced a record 1.1 billion gallons, which supported more than 39,000 jobs, generated income over $1.7 billion, and created more than $3 billion in GDP. Wellman also highlighted the significant contribution of biodiesel to rural economic development, citing that all but a handful of the approximately 170 biodiesel production facilities in the U.S. are located in rural ar-

F UEL eas; approximately half of the annual biodiesel production is from soybean oil and nearly all of the feedstock used to produce biodiesel is grown or originates in rural areas. Wellman also spoke to the importance of biobased products as successful market vehicles for soybeans, highlighting the contribution of the Biobased Markets Program to the overall development of the market segment. “The Biobased Market Program continues and expands the federal biobased procurement program and voluntary labeling program,” stated Wellman. “This is an effective and important program for promoting the emerging biobased indus-

USDA Rural Development hosts Rural Energy Roundtable with Stakeholders SYRACUSE, NY — On Feb. 22, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development New York State Director, Jill Harvey hosted a Rural Energy Roundtable. Stakeholders, state energy partners, lenders, local, state and federal elected officials, and government officers gathered at the Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District Building in Auburn to discuss ways in which Rural Development can maintain its commitment to helping meet President Barak Obama’s energy independence goals. As we approach Farm Bill season, USDA Rural

Development called together stakeholders to provide updates on the Rural Development Renewable Energy for America Program; to discuss ways we can best utilize our dollars, including working with private and public investing partners, and re-emphasize our commitment to renewable and efficient energy efforts. The Farm Bill energy programs have been a priority of the Secretary

of Agriculture. Over the past three years, we’ve begun building a reliable, successful energy program and are looking to continue our success. Rural Development’s energy programs are making significant impacts on communities, business owners and farms. This assistance is decreasing their energy footprint, converting renewable resources into cleaner energy, and saving jobs.

try, which has significant potential to enhance agricultural markets, displace foreign petroleum and fossil fuels, and contribute new “green” jobs to the economy.” In his statement to the committee during the hearing, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack shared Wellman’s assessment of the impor-

Dividends pile up with “nature’s way” baby calf housing and management Group-housing/ad-libitum feeding systems to be discussed in Cortland, March 13 Newborn calves are infants and a social animal. While we cannot perfectly emulate the beef cow with her calf in a herd on pasture, we can mimic the critical number of feedings and social needs of these young bovines thanks to pioneering dairies that are making group housing work. Newer technologies such as autofeeders (robots), stabilized (acidified) milk self feeders, positive pressure directed ventilation and some promising negative pressure ventilation systems have allowed this advancement to flourish. Investment financial risk is minimized due to substantial labor savings with these systems. A broad range of housing options from retrofits to testing system in an older facility and then migrating to a purposed new facility have been working for the nearly 50 New York producers with group calf systems. PRO-DAIRY and CCE’s South Central New York Dairy and Field Crops Team are hosting this 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m. comprehensive workshop on Tuesday, March 13. Space has been reserved

at the New York State Grange auditorium, just off Route 13, near the I81 exchange in Cortland. Experts will talk about the lifetime value of calf growth gains during the first months of life; group feeding and housing systems; advances in barn ventilation and how these systems can spare labor expense to help pay for themselves. Cost is $30 and includes lunch, “how-to” materials from the Dec. 1, 2011 symposium and the proceedings from the day’s presentations. For more information or to register please contact Sharon VanDeuson at the Cortland CCE office. shv7@cornell.edu or 607-753-5078. RSVPs by March 7 are greatly appreciated.

by Ann Swanson Egg beaters When I Googled egg beaters I got a surprise. Instead of the non-electric contraption that is used in the kitchen to mix something, I got pictures of the things that replace eggs in omelets. Depending on your age, you will have various recollections. As I perused the sites I did find some pictures of the things that I set out to look for. Many of them were offered for sale —

some as antiques. Imagine that? My kitchen implement is an antique. I did receive it as a shower gift some 40 years ago so I guess that would be about right. Actually some of the things I saw looked like those that my mother and grandmother had. Grandma kept all of her large baking supplies in a deep drawer in her pantry section of the kitchen. We used the egg beater mostly when

There are a number of ways that things can be whipped up. I often just pick up my whisk to mix things. If I am making rice pudding I whisk the eggs. I had an e-mail from a lady who bought a cookbook. She thought that I made a mistake about the amount of rice in the rice pudding. I assured her that it was correct. Rice pudding is more custard than rice. Do you remember those whisks that looked like large springs? I never had one of those, but I used them at others’ homes. They were excellent when making gravy. The gravy always came out smooth. I remember that my grandmother had to strain hers to get rid of the lumps. I, too, many times have to strain my gravy. I guess maybe I should have had one of the spring things. As for the egg beaters

that I found information about online, I do not really know what all they contain since I have never bought any of them. I have seen them used when I travel as well. I just cannot bring myself to use a manufactured egg when I can get the real thing with the nutrition that it provides. Eggs are a complex issue. They have gone back and forth as to their favor with doctors and nutritionists. Once again I say everything in moderation. I do not believe that it hurts me to eat an egg now and then. I do think that the method of preparation might be a factor. On our Canadian rail trip I was able to order poached eggs. That is the only place that I have ever been able to order a poached egg. That is probably my favorite way to fix an egg. I remember

my grandfather eating a poached egg on toast many mornings. One of the cooks that I frequently watch mentioned that a little vinegar is added to the water when poaching an egg to keep the protein together. I have not had a chance to try that method, but I assure you I will. You must be careful that the water is hot, but not boiling when you poach something. When I went to a nonelectric egg beater site I found mostly what I would call whisks shown. There was an egg-shaped plastic battery version that whipped an egg, but other than that they varied in shape and size and were coated with nylon and silicone. I did find a rotary beater similar to the one I

we were making whipped cream or pudding. Grandma had an electric mixer that she used when she made cookies. I remember how hard the egg beaters turned. You really had to bear down to get the thing to whip. My egg beater, on the other hand, turns easily. It is stainless steel and the gears allow it to move smoothly. I use my egg beater when I make French toast or scrambled eggs. I do not use a lot of whipped cream, but if I need some for a dessert my egg beater comes out. The grandchildren have used it to make instant pudding. That was one of the first things I ever let them make.

Pennsylvania Farmers Union elects officers, passes bylaws Pennsylvania Farmers Union (PFU) members elected a new board of officers and passed organizational bylaws during the group’s convention Feb. 25 in State College, PA. The board includes President Robert Junk Jr., Vice President Kim Miller, Secretary Greg Boulos, Treasurer Bryan McConnell, Director at Large Brian Snyder, and Regional directors Gary Oakes, Allen Matthews and Lolly Lesher. “This is a tremendous step for PFU as we continue the reorganization

process,” said Junk. “Members elected a new board and passed bylaws, ensuring they have an organization that will voice their concerns in the coming months and years both in Washington, D.C., and in Harrisburg.” Junk will represent PFU on National Farmers Union’s (NFU) Board of Directors at NFU’s upcoming convention in Omaha, NE. “This is such an important time for farmers, particularly with the 2012 Farm Bill being written in the coming months,” said NFU President

Roger Johnson. “With the reorganization of PFU, Pennsylvania family farmers and ranchers will ensure their concerns and needs are heard during the process.” National Farmers Union has been working since 1902 to protect and

enhance the economic well-being and quality of life for family farmers, ranchers and rural communities through advocating grassrootsdriven policy positions adopted by its membership.

I am not sure there would be a market for that many egg beaters since most of the women today probably do not own one, nor do they want one. The kitchen is a lucrative market these days with the popularity of all of the cooking shows. The cooks who have programs on television are very well known. Many have their own line of cookware. Although Rachel Ray has a whole line of cookware that she uses on her show I happened to notice that one of the bowls that she uses on her counter is very old-fashioned. My mother-in-law had a whole set of them that she used regularly. They are a heavy plastic, but it is not the see through variety. The thing I like about them is that they were very smooth

and there are no spots that are not accessible with a whisk or a beater. When I visit flea markets I am always drawn to the kitchen tools. There is a lot of history in those implements. Since I lived with my grandparents I got to use many things that are currently being offered as antiques. All of those things with the painted handles are now classified as antiques by many. The ones I have, I use. They help me connect with the cooks of the past as I go about the business of cooking and baking. Many thanks, ladies, for the implements you preserved by using them in my presence. I cherish the memories and hope I do justice to the food that I prepare with them.

The National Pork Board’s six producer-led science and technology committees recently met in Dallas, Texas, to make decisions on how to advance pork producers’ research priorities. Many of the committees reviewed research proposals to select projects that the Pork Checkoff would fund in 2012. In all, the groups reviewed more than 100 proposals, ultimately selecting those that would be of greatest benefit to the

overall industry. Everett Forkner, a producer from Richards, MO, and president of the National Pork Board, said it’s exciting to see producers, along with allied industry and government, work together to set the course for new pork-specific research. “We know that the Pork Checkoff’s involvement helps spur advances in science, but what’s particularly gratifying is how this investment in research helps

make a difference in how farmers produce food in an efficient and socially responsible way,” Forkner said. “Providing unique scientific and technical information that will benefit the entire industry is a major goal of the Pork Checkoff,” said Paul Sundberg, the Checkoff’s vice president of science and technology. “Producers take many things into account when determining what proposals get funded each year, includ-

ing ensuring that the research is not being done elsewhere, the project will impact the industry and the results will be publically available.” Some of the new information and action, coming from the respective science and technical research committees, included: Animal Science — Research results, addressed by the Checkoff’s Nutritional Efficiency Consortium, are published at pork.org. The

committee asked for a more comprehensive summary of this research to be available later this year. The committee has dedicated resources to work on pork quality, as it relates to on-farm factors that could affect tenderness. Animal Welfare — Proposals on pain management related to castration and euthanasia were funded. Work on the next version of Pork Quality Assurance® Plus also was discussed, with the launch of the updated program slated for mid-2013. Housing and transportation research remain as key priorities. Environment — The committee discussed the additional work on the carbon footprint that will be released in 2012, including a baseline report and improvements to the calculator tool. In 2013, an economic component for the calculator is expected, along with a water footprint baseline and calculator and an air emissions model. Pork Safety, Quality and Human Nutrition — Several proposals related to how the quality of fat affects overall meat quality were funded. The objective of the projects is to help producers raise animals that will provide high-quality pork to help increase consumer demand. For

human nutrition, the committee identified priorities for the next call for research, including satiety, body composition, weight loss/maintenance, cognition function and pork’s role in a healthy diet. Producer/Public Health and Worker Safety — This newly formed committee approved its mission statement: “To acquire and provide science-based information that will protect and improve producer and public health, promote a safe farmwork environment and enhance consumer confidence in U.S. pork production.” Research funded included environmental movement of antimicrobial and resistant bacteria and resistant genes, as well as a study on the impact of pig health on public health. Swine Health — The committee funded research on the transmission and vaccine development for influenza and diagnostics and intervention strategies for swine dysentery, mycoplasma and rotavirus. Also funded was research on foreign animal disease that could assist in the development of better vaccines for diseases, such as foot-andmouth disease. While

not discussed at this meeting, PRRS remains a top concern, and a special call for PRRS research proposals will occur later this year. Sow Lifetime Productivity Working Group — This group, which included producers from across the science and technology program areas, as well as other producers with a high interest in breeding herd productivity and allied industry representatives, met during a separate meeting in Dallas to dis-

cuss a multidisciplinary approach to improving sow lifetime productivity of the U.S. herd. The group discussed the road map to achieve the specific research needs of the multi-year effort, with a goal of a 30 percent improvement in sow lifetime productivity over the next seven years. Completed Checkofffunded research results are available at pork.org. The National Pork Board has the responsibility for Checkoff-funded research, promotion

and consumer information projects and for communicating with pork producers and the public. Through a legislative national Pork Checkoff, pork producers invest $0.40 for each $100 value of hogs sold. The Pork Checkoff funds national and state programs in advertising, consumer information, retail and foodservice marketing, export market promotion, production improvement, technology, swine health, pork safety and environ-

mental management. For information on Checkofffunded programs, pork producers can call the Pork Checkoff Service Center at 800-456-7675 or check the Internet at pork.org.

Biological Engineering class turns out innovative products UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — A team of Penn State students is helping a Pennsylvania farm to reduce waste nutrients and generate energy, thanks to a course-based academic competition. The students participated in an innovative program, called the Learning Factory, through the Biological Engineering Design (BE 466W) class. Since its inception in 1995, the Learning Factory has allowed participants to partner with companies and sponsors, bringing real-world problems to the classroom. Teams of four to six students receive an initial budget of $1,000 from a sponsor to formally develop a product for the company. These products then are presented at the Engineering Design Showcase, where teams compete in various categories. A six-student team finished second out of 54 teams in the People’s Choice Award category at the showcase for designing an on-farm anaerobic digester for small-scale farming. The team was sponsored by Ron and Keppy Arnoldsen, who own an 11-acre farm in Huntington. Team members of the College of Agricultural Sciences included Biological Engineering majors Jonathan Amt (senior, Doylestown), Jason Hegedus (senior, Ruffs Dale), Brian Kelly (senior, West Chester), Tom McCarthy (senior, Spring City) and Andrew Wolos (senior, Bethel Park). Amanda Peak (senior, Burlington, N.J.), a Chemical Engineering major from the College of Engineering, rounded out the team. The Arnoldsens were looking to save energy and recycle manure and organic waste on their farm. They also were interested in using recycled energy to power a hydroponic greenhouse, which would allow them to extend the growing

season so they could provide greens to restaurants in winter months. “We were responsible for three main components: the solar collector, gas collection and the anaerobic digester,” McCarthy explained. “The goal was to put wastes and organic matter — in this case pig manure — into the anaerobic digester to produce usable biogas that could help offset the cost of heating fuel for the greenhouse.” With this, PEnergy was born. “We’re hoping that by recycling substances like pig manure and converting it to usable energy, it will not only help reduce energy costs for the farm, but it also will help clean up the Chesapeake Bay watershed,” said Hegedus. Anaerobic digesters

Manure Handling are not always feasible for small-scale farmers and those on larger farms cost upwards of $1 million, McCarthy pointed out. “There were no previous designs or places of reference to use as examples for some parts of the project,” he said. The students worked on the design during the fall 2011 semester, designing and building the project, as well as writing technical reports for the class. “We put in a lot of time, some 12-hour days,” said Hegedus. “But the engineering experience was very rewarding.” In the end, the students built a working digester on the farm. “We were able to work through the whole design and building process,” he added. “This has definitely

been good for me as a prospective engineer.” PEnergy is only one example of the projects and products that are churned up by the Biological Engineering 466W class. More than 3,000 projects have been designed and produced for nearly 300 sponsors

by the Learning Factory over the years. “The Learning Factory is a College of Engineering program that gives industry partners a great opportunity to have problems addressed by bright and enthusiastic students,” said Jeffrey Catchmark, associate

professor of agricultural and biological engineering, who developed and instructs the Biological Engineering Design class. “And it gives the students a great opportunity to get hands-on design experience and learn more about how industry challenges are solved.”

by Mike Hunter, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizer products available on the market. There is no question that enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizer use is becoming more widespread across the country, including Northern New York. The gaining popularity of these products is driven by the claims that they will reduce fertilizer nitrogen losses, improve crop yields, and reduce input costs. The

types of enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizers are nitrification inhibitors, urease inhibitors, slow and controlled release fertilizers. Farmers will frequently ask me the question “Will these products work for them?” and my immediate answer is always, “It depends.” The reason for the rather vague answer is because there are several factors that determine the risk for nitrogen losses. Some of these factors include the nitrogen fertilizer source, timing, placement, soil type, weather and environmental con-

ditions at the time of application. Understanding what happens to the nitrogen fertilizer when it is applied to the soil and how the enhanced efficiency fertilizers are sup-

before is used by plants and this conversion process is known as mineralization. Organic nitrogen is not easily lost to the environment. • Ammonium nitrogen comes from the breakdown of organic matter and is also in many nitrogen fertilizers. It is positively charged and binds to the negatively charged soil particles. It is not easily lost until it is converted to nitrate by soil microbes. The ammonium form may be directly taken up by the plant. • Nitrate is negatively charged and does not bind to the soil particles; therefore, it moves through the soil with the water and is subject to leaching. In warm, waterlogged soils bacteria take the oxygen from the nitrate, leaving nitrogen gas that is lost to the atmosphere. This process is called denitrification. This form of nitrogen is also available for plant uptake. Nitrogen is lost from the soil by: • Plant uptake and other organisms in the soil • Runoff • Leaching • Denitrification: conversion of nitrate to atmospheric form of nitrogen • Volatilization: loss of gaseous ammonia to the atmosphere Source: Lewis County Ag News, March 2012

The New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association is requesting proposals for 2012 soybean research. Proposals must be received no later than 4 p.m. on March 23 at: NYCSGA, PO Box 605, Sackets Harbor, NY 13685. E-mailed proposals formatted as a PDF are encouraged and should be sent to juliacrobbins@gmail.com. Funding decisions are expected to be made on or around April 13. Typical awards are expected to be $10,000 per project or less. NYCGSA reserves the right to negotiate award/contract funding with successful applicants. The available funds for 2012 research projects will be awarded with funds collected from NYCSGA’s National Soybean Checkoff assessments, and will be based on actual and anticipated collection of Checkoff assessments received in New York State. Eligible researchers/ investigators may include scientists from colleges and universities or agri-businesses, cooperative extension agents, independent consultants and farmers. Collaboration between academic institutions, businesses and farmers is encouraged. Please use the following format for your proposal: 1. Project title 2. Investigator(s) name, contact information, and affiliation (contact information should include, phone, address, e-mail). 3. Specific research objectives 4. Brief discussion of the expected benefits of the research to soybean

producers. 5. Concise description of the experimental approach with procedures to be used, and explanation of how the proposed research relates to any past research or showing that no previous research has been done (reference key research publications as appropriate). 6. Detailed line-item budget including any other sources (current or pending) of funding for this same research. Attach supporting date for any proposed expenditures in excess of $10,000. Principal investigator salary and non-expendable equipment are not eligible for funding. NYCSGA will not pay overhead and direct costs. 7. Brief description of investigator qualifications for the proposed research. 8. Signature of authorized representative & date. Note: If on farm field trials or other farmer engagement is part of the research proposal, then please include letters of collaboration from participating farmers. While NYCSGA will consider multiyear proposals, funding awards/contracts will only be made for one year at a time given that the Board’s source of funds varies by annual soybean sales and Checkoff assessment collections. This also allows the Board to consider the effectiveness of any previous research expenditures on the proposed or similar research projects and of the researcher on this or other projects. Payments of research grant awards will be made on a reimbursement ba-

Conservation program cuts loom large in next Farm Bill by Bob Gray It is very likely that USDA’s conservation programs will take a significant hit in the next Farm Bill. The House and Senate Agriculture Committees recommended $6 billion in conservation program cuts over the next 10 years to the failed Super Committee efforts last fall. And that number is the most likely place to start in crafting a Farm Bill this year. This represents 10 percent of the total conservation budget for the various programs funded by USDA. Programs like EQIP have been central to livestock, dairy, poultry and

swine producers who are trying to cope with nutrient run-off around their farm buildings and manure containment facilities. And as reported in past newsletters there is a tremendous backlog (over 3,700 in the Northeast) of unfunded EQIP projects. It will be very difficult indeed to fend off these expected cuts in USDA conservation programs. Source: NDFC E-letter for Feb. 24

New York farm numbers decrease The number of farms in New York for 2011 decreased from a year earlier, reports King Whetstone, Director of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, New York Field Office. The number of farms for 2011 is estimated at 36,000. Land in farms was 7.00 million acres. Farms with sales over $500,000 increased by 50 to 1,800 while farms with sales between $250,000 and $499,999 fell by 150 to 1,300. The area of land operated by farms in these two groups totaled 2.50 million acres, equal to a year ago. The next smaller sales class, farms with sales between $100,000 and $249,999 decreased by 200 to 3,200 while land operated by these farms decreased to 1.10 million acres. There were 10,800 farms with sales between $10,000 and $99,999 compared with 10,700 a year earlier. Land they operated totaled 1.80 million acres. There were 100 less small farms with sales between $1,000 and $9,999 in 2011, at 18,900. Land in farms for this class remained the same as last year at 1.60 million acres. The number of farms in the United States in 2011 is estimated at 2.2 million, down slightly from 2010. Total land in farms, at 917 million acres, decreased 1.85 million acres from 2010. The average farm size is 420 acres, up 1 acre from the previous year. Farm numbers and land in farms are broken down into five economic sales classes. Farms and ranches are classified into these “sales classes” by sum-

ming their sales of agricultural products and government program payments. Sales class breaks occur at $10,000, $100,000, $250,000, and $500,000. Farm numbers increased slightly in the $10,000-$99,999, $250,000$499,999, and $500,000 and over sales classes. Higher commodity prices and larger value of sales contributed to changes in the number of farms within these sales classes. Farm numbers increased 1.3 percent, to slightly over 600,000 farms in the $10,000 $99,999 sales class and 1.9 percent in the $250,000 - $499,999 sales class to over 100,000 farms. Meanwhile, the number of farms in the $500,000 and over sales class increased by 5.9 percent, to 133,570 farms. Land in farms increased in the largest sales class while decreasing in all other sales classes. Land operated by farms in the $500,000 & over in sales class increased 2.5 percent, to 305.7 million acres. Land operated by farms in both $1,000-$9,999 and $100,000$249,999 sales classes decreased by 3.5 percent, to 100.7 million acres and 138.7 million acres respectively.

by Glen Cope My parents taught me from a young age that you need not look any farther than the end of your own shirt sleeve for a helping hand. It’s a

creed that I, and most of the farmers in this great country, live by. In an era of corporate greed and government bailouts, I’m mighty proud of that old shirtsleeve, as I know

other farmers and ranchers are. We are also fond of our trusty bootstraps, by which we sometimes have to pull ourselves up. We’ve all heard that old expression that “Farm-

ers are the salt of the Earth.” As a fourth generation farmer, I truly believe it. We care deeply for our land, animals and ability to provide food for our country. But, as people become further removed from agriculture, that old expression is not being met with the same public acceptance it once was. Public misconceptions, mostly fueled by antiagriculture activists, are giving farmers a bad rap. For example, because farmers have been innovative in research and technology to better care for the environment and provide healthier food with fewer inputs, we are being punished for being too tech-savvy. Because we incorporate with other family members for tax purposes, we are called “big, corporate ag,” even though 98 percent of U.S. farms remain family-owned. And because we care for our animals in a scientifically-proven and veterinary-approved manner, we are told by activist groups that we don’t know how to care for our animals. Recently, I was in a taxi

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE American Farm Bureau Federation cab in New Orleans on the way to the airport heading home to Missouri. In a light-hearted conversation with the cab driver, I mentioned I was a farmer. His first response was, “Oh, you must be rich.” Far from it, I told him, explaining the many input and operating costs we have and how farmers really live. This conversation was still on my mind when I landed back at my local airport and got into my muddy farm truck, which painfully stuck out in a sea of shiny cars and SUVs. As I headed home, the houses and subdivisions grew fewer and fewer and the rows of streetlights were replaced with fencerows and cow pastures. I returned home to the farm where not only I was raised, but my father, grandfather and greatgrandfather also grew up. And I could not help but think of the blessings that farmers experience every day — the fresh air and green grass, and the ability to raise one of the safest

and most abundant food supplies in the world. Most importantly, I am able to raise my children as I was raised, in a rural setting, while teaching them the values of a hard day’s work. It’s a shame that all Americans can’t experience living and working on a farm for just one day. They’d get some fresh air in their lungs and some dirt under their fingernails; they’d get to use some really cool farm equipment and technology, knowing these tools are contributing to a safer and cleaner environment; they’d get to work with and care for some of God’s best living creatures; and, best of all, they’d get to work alongside their families. Farmers are rich the cabbie says? Maybe we are rich after all. Glen Cope, a fourth generation beef producer in Southwest Missouri, is chair of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee.

March 8th is National Ag Day, a time when producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America gather to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by American agriculture. As the world population soars, there is even greater demand for the food, fiber and renewable

resources produced in the United States. The National Ag Day program believes that every American should: • understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced. • value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy. • appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant

and affordable products. • acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries. Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, and is increasingly contributing to fuel and other bioproducts. Each year, members of the agricultural industry gather together to promote American agriculture. This effort helps educate millions of consumers. By far, the most effective part of this program is the role you play in helping spread the word. A few generations ago, most Americans were directly involved in — or had relatives or friends involved in — agricultural-related en-

deavors. Today, that is no longer the case. That is why it is so important that we join together at the community level... our voices, in concert, become a shout that carries our message a great deal further than any one of us can do alone! We are pleased that you have joined this effort to promote American agriculture. Agriculture is AMAZING! Americans need to understand the value of agriculture in their daily lives. Here are just some of the key reasons why it’s important to recognize — and celebrate — Ag Day each year: • Increased knowledge of agriculture and nutrition allows individuals to make informed personal choices about

diet and health. • Informed citizens will be able to participate in establishing the policies that will support a competitive agricultural industry in this country and abroad. Employment opportunities exist across the board in agriculture. Career choices include: • farm production • agribusiness management and marketing • agricultural research and engineering • food science • processing and retailing • banking • education • landscape architecture • urban planning • energy • and other fields. Beginning in kinder-

garten and continuing through 12th grade, all students should receive some systematic instruction about agriculture. Agriculture is too important a topic to be taught only to the small percentage of students considering careers in agriculture and pursuing vocational agricultural studies. Agricultural literacy includes an understanding of agriculture’s history and current economic, social and environmental significance to all Americans. This understanding includes some knowledge of food, fiber and renewable resource production, processing and domestic and international marketing.

Milk Supply Outpaces Milk Demand Issued Feb. 24, 2012 January milk production in the top 23 states totaled 15.8 billion pounds, according to USDA’s preliminary data, up 3.7 percent from January 2011. Revisions added a million pounds to the December estimate and put total 2011 production at 196.2 billion pounds, up 1.8 percent from 2010. Cow numbers in 2011 totaled 9.19 million head, up 0.8 percent from 2010, and milk per cow averaged 21,345 pounds, up 197 pounds from 2010. The Department pointed out that the average output per cow has risen 14.7 percent

since 2002. January output in the 50 states totaled 16.9 billion pounds, up 3.4 percent. January cow numbers in the 23 states totaled 8.5 million head, up 13,000 from December and 93,000 above a year ago. Output per cow averaged 1,857 pounds, up 46 from a year ago. California was up a whopping 6.6 percent from a year ago, thanks to 29,000 more cows and a 95 pound gain per cow. Wisconsin was up 3.7 percent, on a 65 pound gain per cow but cow numbers were unchanged. Idaho was up 4.7 percent on 8,000

Mielke from B1 more cows and 60 pounds more each. New York was up just 0.3 percent on a 5 pound gain per cow but cow numbers were unchanged. Pennsylvania was up 0.6 percent on a 20 pound gain per cow but cow numbers were down 3,000. Minnesota was up a half percent, thanks to a 25 pound gain per cow but cow numbers were down 5,000 head. The biggest gains were again in the west. Arizona was up 7 percent on an 85 pound gain per cow and 5,000 more cows. Texas was up 3.8 percent on a 25 pound gain per cow and 10,000 more cows. Washington State saw a 5.4 percent increase on 11,000 more cows and a 20 pound gain per cow. Vermont was the only state in the top 23 showing a decline, off a half percent, but New Mexico’s rate of gain slowed in January despite a 12,000 cow increase, up just 0.7 percent. Output per cow plunged 60 pounds. USDA’s Livestock Slaughter report estimated 263,800 culled dairy cows were slaughtered under federal inspection in January, up just 1,900 from December, and virtually unchanged from the 263,900 in January 2011. FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks called the Milk Production report “bearish” on butter but indicates strong pizza sales on the cheese side. Cash block cheese closed February 24 at $1.4675 per pound, down 2 cents on the President’s Day holiday shortened week, and 52 cents below a year ago when it was flirting with the $2 level. Barrel closed at $1.47, down a penny on the week and 48 cents below a year ago. Nineteen cars of block traded hands on the week and five of barrel. The NASS-surveyed U.S. average block price fell to $1.5046, down 2.7 cents, while the barrels averaged $1.5251, down 0.4 cent. USDA’s Dairy Market News reports that cheese production remains above expected levels as increased milk supplies are available and offered at discounts in some cases. Buyers are attempting to determine if this is the “bottom” for the near term and whether to in-

crease orders or wait for lower prices. This waitand-see attitude is increasing inventories at some cheese plants. Butter closed at $1.4175, up a quartercent on the week, but 60 1/4-cents below a year ago. Nine cars found new homes on the week. The

NASS average fell to $1.4417, down 5.7 cents. NASS nonfat dry milk averaged $1.3637, down 4 cents, and dry whey averaged 63.95 cents, down 0.2 cent. Churning schedules across the country remain seasonally strong as cream remains readily

available, according to USDA, and continues to move from one region to another to find churning capacity or willing buyers. Often, churning activity is surpassing demand, thus clearances to inventory continue. Speaking of inventory; the Agriculture Depart-

ment’s latest Cold Storage report showed January butter stocks soared 60 percent from December and hit 171.2 million pounds, up 44 percent from January 2011. American type cheese, at 612.5 million pounds, was unchanged from December but 4 percent be-

low a year ago. Total cheese stocks declined 1 percent during January, to 977.8 million pounds, 7 percent below a year ago. Milk production across the country is generally more enhanced this year than in previous years for

WEEKLY MARKET REPORT


Section B - Page 10 March 5, 2012 • Let Them Know You Read COUNTRY FOLKS •

Mielke from B2 this time of the season, according to USDA’s weekly update. As pointed out last week, much of that is attributed to a fairly mild winter and the increasing volumes are being met with challenges as some milk and components are having a hard time finding available processing capacity. Class I sales are typical for this time of the month although some stronger demand occurred in the Central region where late winter storms sent consumers to stores for bottled milk and food staples. Last week I reported that Seattlebased Northwest Dairy Association is implementing a “base” program for April through September. Its processor arm, Darigold, experienced a major fire this week in one of its two dryers at its Lynden, Washington plant. Capacity was reduced to 60 percent at an operation that dries 4 million pounds of milk per day. Repairs will take three to five months, according to Darigold officials, and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation. On a brighter note, Dairy Profit Weekly Dave Natzke reported in Friday’s DairyLine broadcast that the Food & Drug Administration’s annual report on milk drug residue testing had some good news. The number of milk samples testing “positive” for drug residues was a record low in 2011. Of nearly 3.8 million milk samples analyzed, just 1,079 (28 one-thousandth of 1%) tested positive and none of those positives were found in pasteurized milk and dairy products headed to consumers. On the down side, he reported that consumers are getting less milk in fluid form. Based on government estimates, less than 28 percent of all milk marketed in 2011 was sold in gallon jugs and

other packaged fluid products. “With dairy consumption inching upward, that means U.S. consumers are purchasing more cheese, butter, yogurt, dairy protein foods and other dairy products,” Natzke said. Looking “back to the futures;” the average Class III milk price for the first six months of 2012 stood at $17.60 per hundredweight (cwt.) on January 6, $17.28 on January 13, $16.81 on January 20, $16.85 on January 27, $16.35 on February 3, (after factoring in the announced January Class III milk price) $16.19 on February 10, $16.08 on February 17, and was hovering around $15.71 late morning February 24. Speaking of milk prices; Dairy Profit Weekly reports that Vermont’s congressional delegation has introduced legislation to extend the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) program beyond its expiration date at the end of fiscal year 2012. The MILC Continuation Act of 2012 would extend MILC for one year at current levels. You’ll recall that the MILC payments are triggered when the Class I price in Boston falls below $16.94 per hundredweight (cwt.). Currently, the base payment rate is any positive difference between $16.94 and the Class I milk price at Boston, times 45 percent. There is also a “feed cost adjuster,” increasing the payment when the price of a cwt. of dairy feed rises above its target of $7.35. Set to expire September 30, 2012, the potential payment total also takes a significant hit in its final month, when payments drop to 34 percent of the difference in the $16.94/cwt. trigger and

the actual Boston Class I price. Payments under the program are limited by production. Currently, producers are eligible to receive payments on up to 2.985 million pounds per fiscal year. Meanwhile, the University of Wisconsin’s Dr. Brian Gould, updated his

Council (MPC) took IDFA’s Connie Tipton to task in its February 17 newsletter for comments she made last week on Capitol Hill and which I reported on here last week. MPC’s Rob Vandenheuvel wrote that he agreed with Tipton that “our pricing system addresses a problem that ex-

315-539-7000

isted many years ago but disagrees with anyone that tries to argue that our fundamental problem no longer exists.” The problem, according to Vandenheuvel, is that dairy farmers “produce a highly-perishable product that must be sold every day to a group of buyers (processors) that don’t have to buy every day and don’t have to buy from any specific dairy.” “That fundamental reality,” argued Vandenheuvel, “still impacts our dairy farms just as it did 100 years ago and puts our dairy farmers at an immediate disadvantage when coming to the negotiating table.” “In response to this fundamental imbalance, our industry has enlisted the government, whether that’s the Federal government (Federal Orders) or a State government (such as California) to act as a “referee” in establishing at least a minimum price that those buyers of milk (including IDFA’s members) must pay for the milk they purchase,” he wrote, “And it’s that government function that IDFA is trying to eliminate.” Finally, National Milk is expressing concern over a new report on the “anti-competitive practices pervasive in the New Zealand dairy industry.” The report “highlights why the U.S. dairy farmer sector is so concerned with including U.S.-New Zealand dairy trade in a potential Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement (FTA),” a Federation press release explained, and the issue is one NMPF has communicated to the Obama Administration. The report was prepared by the Dairy Export Council (USDEC). An accompanying letter notes that “New Zealand’s largest company has been provided special privileges by the government that enables it to maintain a roughly 90 percent market share of the milk produced in New Zealand. This advantageous position has given this single dairy company direct control of more than one third of world dairy trade without even accounting for the additional sales controlled through its many production and distributor relationships around the world,” USDEC said. Details are post at www.nmpf.org.

Will New York be prepared for the “new” Farm Bill? by Fay Benson, SCNY Dairy Team The USDA classifies New York as an underserved state for crop insurance, meaning, we aren’t using crop insurance to cover our agricultural production at rates seen in other areas of the country. This will put New York at a disadvantage with the direction that the Farm Bill is heading, which is away from Direct Payments and Disaster Assistance to more of a reliance on Risk Management for farmer’s protection from disaster events. If Crop Insurance is to become one of the key avenues for farms to receive federal protection from adverse weather or market events, New York farmers will be at a disadvantage since they have not had the experience of using it on their farms. They will need to learn more about Crop Insurance and how it can fit their farm. If a natural disaster occurs or market prices plunge, crop insurance allows the producer to pay bills and remain in operation. Beyond this fundamental strength, there are other benefits of crop insurance to producers, government, and the public. 1. Producers share in the program cost. When a producer wants crop insurance coverage, the producer must pay for it. While the program is partially subsidized by the government, producers have substantial “skin in the game.” 2. Producers receive crop insurance indemnities in the timeliest way. While some farm programs may make payments fairly promptly, such as marketing loan benefits, others pay out long after the payments are needed. For example, the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE) payments may occur about 1 1/2 years after harvest. Crop insurance policies require the companies to pay within 30 days of claim settlement. Losses due to disasters like floods or hurricanes and prevented planting and replant payments may be paid well before harvest. 3. Producers can use crop insurance as collateral for loans. When bankers loan to a pro-

ducer, they require an expectation that the loan can be repaid. Many producers use land, equipment, or crops as collateral to secure the loan. 4. Producer indemnities are not capped by arbitrary payment limits. There are no income caps to be eligible to buy

crop insurance, and crop insurance premium subsidies and indemnities are not limited. 5. Crop insurance has already contributed to deficit reduction. While the budget for the new farm bill remains uncertain, it is likely to be quite limited. The crop

insurance program has the benefit of having recently undergone substantial budget cuts, most of which have been earmarked for deficit reduction. To learn more about Crop Insurance in New York, contact your County Cornell Cooperative

Extension Office. You can also visit the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets Crop Insurance Education Program at www.agriculture.ny.gov/ AP/CropInsurance.html or contact Sarah Johnston at 518-457-4531, sarah.johnston@agriculture.ny.gov .

Agriculture Counts! by Kevin Pautler, Director NAASS-PA

Editor’s Note: This is a monthly column from the Pennsylvania Field Office of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS-PA) operated in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. The website is www.nass.usda.gov; for the reports mentioned below, click on the “Publications” tab. USDA CONDUCTING FLORICULTURE SURVEY TO GATHER DATA ON RAPIDLY CHANGING INDUSTRY: The Commercial Floriculture Survey is being conducted in Pennsylvania and 14 other major floriculture states. Questionnaires were mailed out between Jan. 20 and Jan. 30.

Growers are being asked to provide information on production area, sales of floriculture commodities and the number of agricultural workers on their operation. If the questionnaire is not received back in the office, an enumerator will contact operations by phone or field interview between now and March 31. The information obtained through this survey will help identify state and national trends in areas such as new product development and changing production practices so that growers can make vital business decisions and evaluate the results of the growing season.

By participating in the survey, floriculture growers ensure that we can provide accurate data on floriculture production, thereby enabling USDA and the industry to be more responsive to domestic and international markets and consumer needs. NASS will compile and analyze the survey information and publish the results in May in the report, Floriculture Crops. As with all NASS surveys, the information respondents provide is confidential by law. NASS safeguards the privacy of all responses and

publishes only state and national level data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified. All reports are available on the NASS web site www.nass.usda.gov. For more information on NASS surveys and reports, call the NASS Pennsylvania Field Office at 717-787-3904. PROFITABILITY and FAMILY FARM ECONOMICS: There will continue to be regulations, legislation and other decisions made about agriculture that affect your profits, losses and your ability to farm. Just as

on your farm, decisions made with little or no information are likely to be wrong. I believe that good measures of the farm financial condition and other objective statistics are needed so that decisions affecting agriculture are made with the facts. Therefore, it is important for us to have an accurate picture of the financial situation of the American farmer. Farm organizations can use this financial picture to review the potential financial effect of additional regulations or other programs and lobby

Congress or Harrisburg on your behalf. Additionally, individual farmers have called us to get these various economic measures and other official statistics to incorporate into their business plans or to take to their lender. This survey also provides the data to generate the USDA Annual Report on Family Farms as required by Congress. This detailed report includes information about average farm income, family and non-family ownership of farms, use of farm credit,

use of government programs, use of natural resources, off-farm employment, and more. To generate this financial picture, we annually conduct the Agricultural Resource Management Study (ARMS) across the entire United States. About 540 Pennsylvania growers are being asked for their help along with 245 in New York, 415 in Ohio and 33,522 others nationwide. In addition to the average farm, this year we are focusing on those that are involved in growing sorghum and barley, and broiler producers. To provide information for the Northeast regional summaries, about 200 of these sampled in Pennsylvania were selected for the commodity-specific questionnaires. Trained interviewers from the local area will be contacting a pre-selected sample of farmers to ask for their help. Each survey represents about 100 other farms of similar size across Pennsylvania. If you are called upon to help, I hope

EPA decision is a win for rural America, national security, and the environment On Feb. 17, National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released an evaluation of the health effects data requirements for registration of E15: “Today’s decision by EPA to accept the health effects information submitted by the Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy clears a major hurdle for E15. Now manufacturers who wish to register E15 may choose to rely on this data for completing their applications. “We are one step closer to having E15 available for widespread distribution in the U.S. American consumers deserve a choice at the pump. According to Growth Energy, the average price of a gallon of E15 is 76 cents cheaper than a gallon of gasoline. E15 is a homegrown fuel that saves consumers money and helps wean us off of our addiction to foreign oil. Today’s decision is a win for rural America, a win for national security, and a win for the environment.”

New York State crop insurance program includes March 15 deadlines Types of Crop Insurance Crop insurance protects the policy holder against either yield or revenue losses that are the result of specific weather-related or other natural events.Crop insurance is administered by the USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA), and to make coverage affordable and to encourage participation, the federal government subsidizes most premiums. For a good overview of all types of crop insurance available, with a strong emphasis on field crops, you can download the New York State Crop Insurance for Field Crops bulletin. Crop insurance is required to qualify for disaster payments The 2008 Farm Bill changed disaster coverage dramatically. Now, all crops grown on a farm must be covered by insurance in order for the farm to receive disaster payments, should a disaster occur. For crops without a specific insurance program, a non-insured crop policy (NAP) must be obtained from your county Farm Service Agency (FSA). It is important to know that the higher your crop insurance coverage, the higher will be your disaster payment. The FSA is the federal agency

that administers the new SURE crop disaster program and can be found at www.fsa.usda.gov The FSA has a disaster payment calculator on their website where you can calculate what your disaster payment will be with various levels of crop insurance coverage. Written agreements A written agreement is a document designed to provide crop insurance coverage for insurable crops when coverage or rates are unavailable in a county. It can also be used to modify the existing terms and conditions in the crop insurance policy when specifically permitted by the policy. Finding an agent Perhaps most important is locating a good crop insurance agent that you are comfortable with. You can find a list of crop insurance agents registered to sell crop insurance on the USDA Risk Management Agency’s webpage at: www3.rma.usda.gov/apps/agents/ (In the “specialty” box, choose “crop insurance.” A new box pops up asking what state you want. Then, once you get New York State, you can choose all counties. If you do so, you will get more than 300 listings. The computer

Following are excerpts of a column written by Steve Meyer, president of Paragon Economics and a Pork Checkoff consultant, in the spring issue of Pork Checkoff Report magazine. The final data are in, and 2011 is now officially a year for the record books when it comes to exports of pork and pork variety meats by the U.S. pork sector. Last year, 2.255 million metric tons (4.971 billion pounds) of pork muscle cuts, pork variety meats and hog sausage casings valued at $6.109 billion dollars left our shores. Both numbers are far and away record highs, with export volume eclipsing the prior record, set in 2008, by 10.5 percent and the export value breaking last year’s record $4.780 billion by 27.8 percent. What a year!

What Does It Mean to You? The impact of record U.S. Pork exports by the numbers: • The $6.109 billion dollars in total pork, pork variety meat and hog sausage casing exports accounts for $55.10 for each of the 110.864 million U.S. hogs that went to market in 2011. • The 1.754 million metric tons (3.865 billion pounds) of product-weight muscle cut exports equates roughly to 5.16 billion pounds of carcass-weight equivalent pork exports. That represents a record 22.7 percent of total carcass-weight pork production, breaking the previous record of 19.9 percent set in 2008. A higher percentage of production going to exports means higher risks and accentuates the importance and value of biosecurity at the borders and on our farms. • Last year’s records were set with a relatively cheap U.S. dollar, which has strengthened some since mid2011. This has made U.S. Pork more expensive for some buyers and relatively more expensive than pork from some competitors. But a “stronger” dollar is a far cry from a “strong” dollar. Our product remains a bargain for most countries.

• Pork variety meats are becoming more important. The Livestock Marketing Information Center in Denver estimates that pork by-products, which include variety meats, skin, etc., reached a record value of $23 per head last summer and were near $22 per head at year’s end. That is double the level of just five years ago. • Trade agreements completed last year with South Korea, Colombia and Panama promise to add significantly to these totals over the next decade.

USDA announces CRP general sign-up Landowners and producers will have 4-week window beginning in March to enroll WASHINGTON, D.C. — Acting Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services (FFAS) Michael Scuse announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will conduct a four-week Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) general signup, beginning on March 12 and ending on April 6. CRP has a 25-year legacy of successfully protecting the nation’s natural resources through voluntary participation, while providing significant economic and environmental benefits to rural communities across the United States. “It is USDA’s goal to ensure that we use CRP to address our most critical resource issues,” said Scuse. “CRP is an important program for protecting our most environmentally sensitive lands from erosion and sedimentation, and for ensuring the sustainability of our groundwater, lakes, rivers, ponds and streams. As always, we expect strong competition to enroll acres into CRP, and we urge interested producers to maximize their environmental benefits and to make cost-effective offers.” CRP is a voluntary program available to agricultural producers to

help them use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to improve the quality of water, control soil erosion and develop wildlife habitat. In return, USDA provides participants with rental payments and costshare assistance. Contract duration is between 10 and 15 years. Producers with expiring contracts and producers with environmentally sensitive land are encouraged to evaluate their options under CRP. Producers also are encouraged to look into CRP’s other enrollment opportunities offered on a continuous, non-competitive, signup basis. Currently, about 30 million acres are enrolled in CRP; and contracts on an estimated 6.5 million acres will expire on Sept. 30, 2012. Offers for CRP contracts are ranked according to the Environmental Benefits Index (EBI). USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) collects data for each of the EBI factors based on the relative environmental benefits for the land offered. Each eligible offer is ranked in comparison to all other offers and se-

PLAN AHEAD

lections made from that ranking. FSA uses the following EBI factors to assess the environmental benefits for the land offered: • Wildlife habitat benefits resulting from covers on contract acreage; • Water quality benefits from reduced erosion, runoff and leaching; • On-farm benefits from reduced erosion; • Benefits that will likely endure beyond the contract period; • Air quality benefits from reduced wind erosion; and • Cost. Over the past 25 years, farmers, ranchers, conservationists, hunters, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts have made CRP the largest and one of the most important in USDA’s conservation portfolio. CRP continues to make major contributions to national efforts to improve water and air quality, prevent soil erosion by protecting the most sensitive areas including those prone to

Highlights of CRP include: • CRP has restored more than two million acres of wetlands and two million acres of riparian buffers; • Each year, CRP keeps more than 600 million pounds of nitrogen and more than 100 million pounds of phosphorous from flowing into our nation’s streams, rivers, and lakes. • CRP provides $1.8 billion annually to landowners — dollars that make their way into local economies, supporting small businesses and creating jobs; and • CRP is the largest private lands carbon sequestration program in the country.

duces both fuel and fertilizer usage. In 2010, CRP resulted in carbon sequestration equal to taking almost 10 million cars off the road. In 2011, USDA enrolled a record number of acres of private working lands in conservation programs, working with more than 500,000 farmers and ranchers to implement conservation practices that clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and prevent soil erosion. Moreover, the Obama Administration, with Agriculture Secretary Vilsack’s

leadership, has worked tirelessly to strengthen rural America, implement the Farm Bill, maintain a strong farm safety net, and create opportunities for America’s farmers and ranchers. U.S. agriculture is currently experiencing one of its most productive periods in American history thanks to the productivity, resiliency, and resourcefulness of our producers.

Statement from New York Farm Bureau President Dean Norton — reacting to important farm exemption included in Governor Cuomo’s 30-day budget amendments: “The release of Governor Cuomo’s 30-day amendments to the 2012-2013 Executive Budget brought great news for New York’s farmers. When the original budget was released, an important and longstanding agricultural exemption from hours of service traveled within New York State was repealed for technical reasons. This exemption allowed farmers to travel from any location in upstate New York to New York City and sell their products, and still return to the farm that night. Without such an exemption, farmers would be forced to restrict shipments and increase costs for consumers at green markets and farmer’s markets. It is

important also to note that for interstate deliveries farmers will still fall under regulations proscribed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Act. “Thanks to the strong grassroots activism of Farm Bureau members and the common sense approach of the Cuomo administration, we were able to correct course before it was too late. The Governor quickly recognized the roadblock that the loss of this exemption would have placed in front of local farmers trying to deliver farm products, and he acted quickly to reinstate this long-standing provision. On behalf of our farm families, I applaud Governor Cuomo for taking this important step and I urge our friends in the State Legislature to support its inclusion in the final budget agreement.”

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You Healthy eating, healthy kids and healthy families by Kathleen Jablonski, Extension Educator, 4-H Youth Development Nutrition. The word evokes thoughts of eating your veggies, picking healthy things to eat and restricting sweets. Yes, that is part of it. Modeling healthy eating habits for children is a HUGE part of what we can do to help youth live a full and healthy life. When my children were growing up, I worked as a high school family and consumer science (aka home economics) teacher. In that role, I had an opportunity to reach 125 teens a day. You’d better believe they watched what I ate, what I had for snacks and, what went home to my family from the grocery store. At school and at home, I tried to model healthy choices. The students knew that when they planned a meal in foods lab they would not be using high fat, high sugar recipes, and that they would be making some foods choices based on their body’s nutritional requirements. It carried over to my own home as well. My children were given healthy choices, sugary snacks were limited, and sugary drinks were not in the home. They were sent outside to play every day after school. They helped in food preparation, and when appropriate, food growing and shopping. (That’s the national 5-2-1-0 campaign, check it out at www.healthynh.com/fhc/initiatives/ch_obesity/5210.php) My children now have families of their own. I can say the healthy eating modeling paid off in how they make nutritional choices now as well as how they are feeding my grandchildren. Good nutrition is about choices, healthy choices. When you read the research on weight control and healthy eating, it all points to one thing: making

healthy, nutrient laden eating choices over a lifetime. The “new” United States Department of Agriculture’s campaign for Americans is called MyPlate. It is meant to be used in conjunction with the information found in the last 10 years of nutrition research and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (http://health.gov/dietaryguidelines/) to help Americans visualize what their plate should look like when making healthy eating choices. It brings to the American public a tool to use to fight obesity. If serving size recommendations for your age, activity level and size are followed, it will help a person get to and maintain a healthy weight. It all starts with an eight inch plate divided into four unequal quadrants. The concept is very simple: over half your plate should be fruits and vegetables, with emphasis on the vegetables, protein should be one serving, and the other serving should be grains, preferably whole grains. The beverage should be a non-sugary drink with a dairy product or dairy substitute as the recommendation. What is a serving size? There are many places you can find this information. I recommend you check out a website from one of the land grant university’s Cooperative Extensions to learn more about serving sizes. Some sites that I like are: www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/, which tells you (by food) how much a serving size it. This website: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fy258 compares servings of food to common household objects. Do you want something to post on your refrigerator? Try this PDF from the University of California: www.ca.uky.edu/ agc/pubs/nep/nep201a/nep201a.pdf Research has found that, on average, most people can stop their natural weight gain by adding 2,000

steps a day to their daily life or by eating 100 less calories. To lose weight, most people need to add more steps and eat less. (Pennington Biomedical Research Center, www.pbrc.edu/ ) This research was duplicated by the University of Kansas Medical Center (www.kumed.com/default.aspx?id=58310). Their research suggests “…eating 100 fewer calories each day can help you maintain a healthier weight. Did you know that by cutting just 100 calories a day you can lose about 10 pounds in a year? It’s not a diet. It’s a lifestyle change. By trimming a bit here and there, you can still enjoy your favorite foods at home and in restaurants. You’ll soon see that small changes do add up!” University of Kansas has a list of behaviors families can model to make healthy eating choices. Some of them are the way we eat, not necessarily what we eat. Their research goes on to recommend the following items. Eat slowly. Eat only when you’re hungry. Use one less tablespoon of butter, margarine or oil. Choose vinegar and oil salad dressing. Make broth-based soups. Steam your veggies. Don’t clean your plate. Another option, when possible, is to order a smaller entrée portion. There is research to back up the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Breakfast contributes, for youth and adults, to higher achievement, lower rates of absence and tardiness, increased concentration, fewer calories, and better nutrition. We know that children learn from watching parents. It stands to reason that if you do not model eating breakfast; your children will not get the benefits either. Making healthy eating changes can take a while. Change one habit (or two) at a time, involve the whole family in the decision making and take the first step to healthy eating and living.

ROASTED CORN & SOYBEANS FOR SALE TRY ROASTED CORN AND SOYBEANS AND DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE! Higher Digestibility - Research studies show that roasted corn is more digestible than raw corn. • Energy levels increased by 30% with roasted corn. • Roasted corn has gelatinized starch just like steam flaked corn but is less costly to produce. • If your fecal starch levels are above 2.3% roasted corn will increase profitablility. • Most dairymen are feeding 10% less roasted corn than raw dry corn. • Some dairymen are seeing an increase in BF. Purer Feed - Flame roasting can effectively remove mold spores and reduce toxin levels that are harmful to livestock, swine and poultry. • Better herd health.
