Three generations of breeding knowledge pays off for Conards’ Ridgedale Farm in NYS Spring Dairy Carousel by Pat Malin SYRACUSE, NY — A string of colorful ribbons blew lazily above the heads of the contented fan-cooled cows from Ridgedale Farm of Sharon Springs, NY, during the New York Spring Dairy Carousel on April 15. For W. Cyrus Conard, though, there was little time to celebrate. The robust 16-year-old, certainly no novice to the Carousel, virutally wore blinders as he focused on getting his eight Holsteins to the show ring on time. Then there was feeding and grooming them, removing spoiled bedding and replacing it with clean hay at the temporary stalls at the State Fairgrounds. Conard’s attention to detail paid off as six of the cows he handled for his father, Wayne, won awards over the first two days of the Carousel, including ribbons for Reserve Grand Champion, Reserve Champion and Best Bred & Owned in the junior division. He might have not noticed either that the 2012 edition of the Carousel drew a strong field of competitors from 17 states and Canada, according to director Patsy Gifford. And at Saturday night’s Holstein spring sale, the average price was nearly $5,500, with a high price of about $40,000. Ridgedale Farm milks just 100 cows on 70 acres in New York’s Southern Tier. Wayne Conard purposely keeps the farm and herd small and manageable. “We’re able to sell genetics,” he said. And produce show heifers. Obviously, his design is paying off. Cyrus Conard’s Ridgedale Folly won first place in the 125,000-pound cow division during the New York State

Junior Holstein Show on April 14, and then placed sixth overall in the International Holstein Show on April 16. Ridgedale Raven, a Red and White Holstein, collected a pair of ribbons in the Junior show. She placed second in the Senior 3-year-old class, then earned Best Bred & Owned. “The judge (Mark Reuth) said she had a good mammary system and he liked her characteristics,” Conard commented. Also on Saturday, Main-Drag Prescott Silence placed third in the 4year-old class. Sunday, April 15 was a big day for Ridgedale Farm’s Red & White Holsteins. Judge Jason Lloyd of Middleburgh, NY, named Ridgedale-T Raichu-Red (1st Aged cow), the Reserve Senior & Reserve Grand winner. Conard took home the title for Produce of Dam, too, since T Raichu Red is the mother of Ridgedale Raven. Another Red & White, Ridgedale Runway-Red-ET placed second in the 4year-old class. Two of Conard’s fall calves placed in the top 10 on Saturday, Ridgedale Lyrical (7th) and Ridgedale Extensive-Red (10th). As Cyrus took responsibility for feeding the Holsteins in the barn after the show, Wayne Conard took a moment to reflect on his farm’s successes. “My father (Willis) started Ridgedale Farm in 1969 after coming up from New Jersey,” said Wayne, 54. His father, who passed away in 2011, had worked as a herdsman for Jessie Lake, a prominent New Jersey Holstein breeder. Wayne, who came to his first Carousel in 1970, has passed on that shared wisdom to his own son. Cyrus

National Dairy Producers Organization - where producer profitability is key by Jennifer Showalter DAYTON, VA — Producers recently ended their day with dinner and an informative presentation on where The National Dairy Producers Organization is today and what it is working towards in the future. Roughly 60 percent of the producers present are already National Dairy Producer Organization members. The National Dairy Producers organized the gathering to meet with, learn from, and inform dairy producers of changes that need to be brought about on behalf of producers to gain and maintain profitability. “It was a great event that allowed the producers to learn more about the National Dairy Producers Organization as well as their expected roll in fulfilling the 2012 National Agenda,” said Dennis Trissel, National Dairy Producers Organization board member from Harrisonburg, VA. Guest speaker Tom Van Nortwick with Agribusiness Publications in California may not be an actual producer himself, but he truly feels for those who work day in and day out to produce milk for little to no return. Van Nortwick’s emotional presentation really brought home just how big of a mess the producer sector of the United

States dairy industry is in and how farm after farm is being forced out of business. “We (the U.S. dairy industry) are 2 to 3, maybe even 4 percent, over producing needed milk inventories for profit. We are seeing the highest feed costs in the history of dairies and we are still producing more milk. It is not a problem of revenue. There is plenty of money in the milk industry. However the buyers of milk, your partners in the dairy industry, are not willing to pay you, the producers, the true value of milk because they don’t have to. The system is rigid in their favor, especially when there is no concern in the producer sector about managing the production of milk on the farm to keep within profitable demand. It is very complicated! Producers have not been able to control imports into the country and or production on the farm. That combined with their dogged independence and overall lack of unification has prevented them from stemming extreme volatility and loss,” said Van Nortwick. Van Nortwick stressed over and over that the rules have to be changed in order to save the industry. “The solution to the problem is not in

Annual 4-H Calf Sale and Silent Auction offers a real, country-style, family-fun night out “People in the know wouldn’t miss “The Calf Sale” for anything!” remarked Jennifer Simpson, Dairy and Field Crop Educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County, “Sure, we get lots of farmers, looking to add quality stock to their herds — but there’s so much more to this event than a cattle auction: whole families and non-farmers make a night of it!” This year’s event, scheduled for May 12 at the Bergen Farm in Slate Hill, NY, promises to be another enjoyable night out — country style, and admittance is free. “Something for everyone” has become their slogan. The evening begins at 7 p.m. with a traditional chicken barbeque dinner ($10 for adults; children 12 and under: $5). Meanwhile, feel free to visit the dairy livestock that are being offered for sale, or, there are hundreds of silent auction

items in virtually all price ranges. “Lots of people do their Mother’s Day shopping, right here at the Calf Sale!” said Simpson, “You’ll find country craft items, agricultural products, plants, hanging baskets, services, gift certificates, home and garden supplies — the silent auction is as much of a draw as the calf sale!” The Orange County Dairy Court will be on hand, offering “dairy-centric” clothing for all ages. Then it’s time for the calf and heifer auction — followed by the results of the silent auction. The proceeds of the sale support the 4-H Dairy Program in Orange County. If you’d like to pre-order the chicken barbeque dinner (recommended) please call Stacey Stap at 845-7445734. If you have questions or are in need of directions please contact Jennifer Simpson at 845-344-1234 or visit cce.cornell.edu/orange

Cover photo by MacKenzie Snyder Lyndsay Snyder with her heifer, Kendallynds, an Ayrshire.


by Katie Navarra High school senior, Lyndsay Snyder has a passion for agriculture, specifically the dairy industry, and strives to incorporate her love of both in her activities at school, at home and in the greater agricultural community. She is an 8th generation dairy farmer, the New York State FFA State Sentinel and the Treasurer of the New York Junior Guernsey Association. “I am deeply related to agriculture because agriculture is the biggest part of my life and will always be the biggest part of everyone’s life even if they don’t realize it,” she said. Born in Camden, NY, Snyder grew up on her extended family’s dairy farm. Her parents soon recognized that the farm was not large enough to support her uncle, great-aunts and their family and began looking for land to expand. “My parents bought a farm in Copenhagen, NY and bought 80 more head of cattle,” Snyder explained. In total the family was milking 120 head of cattle each day. “On my birthday we lost water and had to transport water from Lowville three times a day,” she vividly recalled, “we realized we had too much.” Her parents moved a second time to a farm in Turin, NY. “They had looked at this farm before we moved to Copenhagen. They called to see if it was still available and it was,” she said. Today, the family milks 67 head and has a herd total of 100 cattle and she works closely with her parents to take

care of the animals every day. FFA experience Agriculture is an integral part of Snyder’s life and when she learned FFA was an agricultural based organization, she had to be a part of it. “My two older brothers both were FFA members, and as I grew older and saw the experiences that they had within the FFA, I was hooked,” she explained, “they would collect stuff for people in need and would go caroling.” Participating in FFA has given Snyder the opportunity to expand her knowledge of and passion for the dairy industry. As a high school sophomore she learned how to show dairy cattle, now an activity that is her biggest hobby. “I am always out there curry combing those cows,” she laughed. Her goal is to attend and compete in the World Dairy Expo one day. As an FFA member she has a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) project that guides her through learning more about agriculture specifically, Dairy Cattle Production. Her first SAE goal was to have a registered animal of her own. In September 2011, she achieved that goal when she was named as the recipient of the Lewis County Enhancement Calf Scholarship Program. She received an Ayrshire heifer named Kendallynds, from KlerVu Dairy, owned by Tom Gillette. “The Lewis County Enhancement Award is a calf that is given to a kid who can grow up with the calf and is going for a profi-

ciency award,” she explained. A second portion of her project is dedicated to tracking how much milk is produced per cow and how much money is made. “With my SAE there is $0 listed under cash in hand because it all goes right back to the cows,” she explained. A YouTube video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UK0PbwAMQ) she created while attending the National Convention talks about her SAE in-depth and shows images of her family’s herd. FFA has not only given Snyder a chance to further explore her passion for the dairy industry, but has also provided her the opportunity to share her love of agriculture through leadership and participation in related events. While Snyder’s family lived on the farm in Copehangen, she discovered that the local high school did not have an FFA program. She played an instrumental role in bringing an FFA Chapter to that school. After moving to Turin and becoming a member of the FFA Chapter at South Lewis High School, she became interested in running for an officer’s position. In 2011 she was elected as the New York State Sentinel. “We (state officers) represent 3,500 kids in FFA and everyone is connected,” she explained. As the elected New York State Sentinel, it is Snyder’s responsibility to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. The six New York State FFA members attend a number of conferences and hold an opening ceremony to officially open a meeting for business.

During the opening ceremonies, each officer is positioned at a specific location in the room and states the responsibilities associated with his/her elected roles. Snyder, is “Stationed by the door” and she states, “Through this door pass many friends of the FFA. It is my duty to see that the door is open to our friends at all times and that they are welcome. I care for the meeting room and paraphernalia. I strive to keep the room comfortable and assist the president in maintaining order.” What the future holds Graduation is only a few months away and Snyder will be headed to SUNY Morrisville or SUNY Cobleskill for Dairy and Ag Science. “It is so difficult to choose a career right now! I feel that there are so many options and I haven’t figured out where I want to be yet. I do know that I want my career to be related to agriculture,” she said. However, she also believes that if something keeps showing up in your life, you are bound to do it. “Last week I had three teachers ask me if I was going to be a veterinarian,” she explained. A few months prior, while caring for a friend’s cows, two became ill. “I couldn’t get them to stand up or drink. I got my dad to help me because I just didn’t want the cows to die,” she said. Both cows pulled through and have encouraged her to consider a career as a veterinarian. “I plan to start in ag science and if it is something (veterinarian) I can succeed in then I will try it,” she concluded.

Department of Labor retreats on misguided youth labor regulations “Late yesterday (April 26), the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) withdrew its controversial proposal to severely restrict youth employment on farms. Make no mistake — this is a

major victory for New York’s farm families and their strong grassroots activism. The agricultural community in our State and across the nation saw this proposal clearly for what is was —

Subcommittee kicks off D.C. Farm Bill hearings with focus on rural development programs WASHINGTON, D.C. — On April 25, Representative Timothy V. Johnson, Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee’s Subcommittee on Rural Development, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, held a hearing to review U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) rural development programs in advance of writing the 2012 Farm Bill. This is the first of eight hearings, which will be held by the Subcommittees to hear from agricultural stakeholders before the House Agriculture Committee begins drafting the reauthorization of agricultural programs. Witnesses at the hearing provided feedback on the programs administered by USDA’s Rural Development agency, which includes the Rural Business and Cooperative Service (RBS), the Rural Housing Service (RHS), and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS). Members heard from two panels of witnesses who explained how programs can be improved to increase their effectiveness. Further, witnesses testified that continued investments in water, energy, and broadband infrastructure are vital for enhancing the

quality of life and economic opportunities for individuals living and working in rural communities. “Getting our debt under control will take shared sacrifice. Every single component of federal spending needs to be examined for efficiencies and savings. As the Committee considers how to reauthorize current programs in the next Farm Bill, it’s important to seek ways to weed out activities and authorities that are either redundant or ineffective. In doing so, these programs would be made more accessible to applicants, reduce USDA’s administrative burden, and focus program resources on core responsibilities,” said Chairman Timothy V. Johnson (RIL). “Over 50 million people call rural America home, and if we truly want to build a 21st century economy, they must be part of the solution. Rural communities rely on the rural development programs to provide and modernize services and facilities. As we move forward with the 2012 Farm Bill, we are trying to target and leverage funds where they can be most effective,” said Ranking Member Jim Costa (D-CA).

a blatant regulatory overreach by Washington, D.C. United in this common cause tens of thousands of negative comments and letters flooded Congress and USDOL, and as a result we were victorious. “I would be remiss if I didn’t thank our friends from the New York Congressional delegation who stood with us, shoulder to shoulder in this battle. Congressman Owens, Gibson, Hanna and Reed, along with Congresswomen Buerkle, Hayworth and Hochul deserve enormous credit for their leadership and advocacy. Senator Schumer also used his significant influence to help us to defeat this draconian proposal. These federal officials fought hard for the future of our farms and for that we are very grateful and appreciative. “While many people deserve credit

for this victory, no one deserves it more than the hardworking rank and file members of New York Farm Bureau. Through their efforts we raised awareness in the media, organized letter writing campaigns and advocacy efforts, and ultimately we triumphed. “We are extremely pleased that USDOL and particularly Secretary Solis finally saw the light and recognized that family farms are vitally important to our economy and our rural way of life, and that we simply can’t afford to jeopardize their future. “Going ahead, New York Farm Bureau looks forward to working with USDOL on its proposed youth education safety initiative. Hopefully, this offer to work collaboratively represents a change at USDOL that will demonstrate that they want to work with us and not against us.”

Cheese and Value-Added Dairy Producers invited to participate in roundtable discussion Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison, Oneida, and Schoharie and Otsego Counties will be hosting a roundtable discussion for cheese and value-added dairy producers on Thursday, May 10, from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. at the Education Center at 123 Lake St., Cooperstown, NY. There is no fee for producers to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge. Pre-registration is required by May 7 by calling 607-547-2536 x226. Space is limited.

Tim Joseph, owner of Maple Hill Creamery, will be presenting his experiences in growing a value-added dairy business. Producers will then be asked to participate in a discussion about emerging challenges and opportunities for regional value-added dairy producers. The purpose of this meeting is to explore how Cooperative Extension may best assist producers in marketing, production, and business development efforts.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Non-targeted newts, etc. In his website www.dirtdoctor.com, on April 2, Howard Garrett published an article titled “Weed Killer Causes Animal Shape Changes”. As soon as I saw that title, what came to mind was research done a few years ago by the biology department at nearby Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY. That research dealt with minute traces of the herbicide atrazine as a possible cause of physical malformations in frogs. So I did an Internet search. Several minutes later I found research headed by Professor Stan Sessions, head of that college’s biology department. Without going into all sorts of detail, one of these research projects showed that very low levels of atrazine residue in frog environments was associated with deformed legs, extra legs, or legs absent entirely in these amphibians. Right next to “links” to Sessions’ work was a website (belonging to a multi-national chemical corporation), saying that atrazine residues had nothing to do with malformed frogs… this particular company never even made atrazine. And it keeps getting better. My search for information on frogs and atrazine residue lead to another website, this one titled “Rachel Carson Syndrome: Pesticides, Frogs, and Organic Foods”. This website, belonging to the superbiotech lobby group Hudson Institute, sought to discredit Professor Sessions’ work; if that wasn’t enough, Hudson’s spokesman, Alex Avery, attacked the credibility and reputation of longdeceased Rachel Carson,

the author of Silent Spring. This book, 50 years ago, prompted President John F. Kennedy to convince Congress to ban the pesticide DDT. Attacking Rachel?... well, as they say down South, “them’s fighting words”. So I calmly read Garrett’s article, and will hit its high-spots for our readers. Garrett addresses the impact of glyphosate, as it appears to inflict collateral damage on lesser (?) members of the animal kingdom. He writes that the world’s most popular weed killer can induce morphological changes in vertebrate animals, all this according to U.S. biologists studying its effect on amphibians. University of Pittsburgh researchers said the weed killer glyphosate, in sublethal and environmentally relevant concentrations, caused two species of amphibians to change their shape. The study is the first to show that a pesticide can induce morphological changes in a vertebrate animal, this according to biological sciences Professor Rick Relyea in a university release early last month. (Hartwick College research dealt only with one species.) The presence of predators can cause tadpoles to change shape by altering the tadpoles’ stress hormones, Relyea said, causing them to grow bigger tails to better escape. But similar shape changes seen after exposure to glyphosate suggest the weed killer may interfere with the hormones of tadpoles and potentially many other animals, Relyea said. “It was not surprising to see that the smell of preda-

tors in the water induced larger tadpole tails,” Relyea said. “That is a normal, adaptive response.” What shocked the researchers was that glyphosate induced the same changes… as well as the fact that the combination of predators and glyphosate caused the tail changes to be twice as large. Because tadpoles alter their body shape to match their environment, having a body

shape that does not fit the environment can put the animals at a distinct disadvantage, the researchers said. “This discovery highlights the fact that pesticides, which are important for crop production and human health, can have unintended consequences for species that are not the pesticide’s target,” Relyea said. “Herbicides are not designed to affect animals, but we are learning that they can have a wide range of surprising effects by altering how hormones work in the bodies of animals. This is important because amphibians not only serve as a barometer of the ecosystem’s health,

but also as an indicator of potential dangers to other species in the food chain, including humans.” Which brings to mind images of the canary in the coal mine. According to the Wikipedia on-line encyclopedia, Canaries were once regularly used in coal mining as an early warning system. Toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, methane or carbon dioxide in the mine would kill the bird before affecting the miners. Signs of distress from the bird indicated to the miners that conditions were unsafe. The use of miners’ canaries in British mines was phased out in 1987. Hence, the

phrase “canary in a coal mine” is frequently used to refer to a person or thing which serves as an early warning of a coming crisis. By analogy, the term “climate canary” is used to refer to a species that is affected by an environmental danger earlier than other species would be, thus serving as an early warning system for the other life forms with regard to the danger in question. Maybe these deformed amphibians, despite Alex Avery’s wellfunded rhetoric, should serve, for those at the top of the food chain, as the canary in the coal mine. Or the warning shot over the bow… choose your metaphor.

A Few Words by Phoebe Hall

salesman called the next day and said that the place where he applied for the loan said we do not have any credit rating, either good nor bad, because we haven’t purchased anything on credit in the last few years, or used an active credit card. But he stated that the lending institution agreed to lend us the money for a little higher interest rate. Higher? It was double what he had earlier guaranteed, and we told him that the offered rate was approaching usury. We thanked him and told him we might be able to do better on our own. When we bought this farm 50 years ago, the only lending institutions that would help us beginners were FHA and FLB. After a couple of good years we were able to meet all our obligations with FHA and switched to PCA. We always had a very good working relationship with our loan officers at PCA and one thing we always appreciated about the last one we worked with was that he would always ask us to justify each and every expenditure. A few years ago, things worked out so we were able to retire the mortgage and then after that we cash flowed all our purchases. So that’s where we found ourselves as we attempted to

line up credit for another farm truck. We were being penalized for not playing the credit game. It seems that if you don’t play the game by their rules, even if you have plenty of equity, you can not participate in the game. Equity doesn’t seem to add up to much when it comes to a credit rating. We decided to go back to basics and reestablish our good working relationship with PCA/FCE. But the loan officer that we had worked with had moved on to another position within the organization, leaving us to establish a rapport with a new loan officer. We were pleasantly surprised when we met the new officer and found that he was well equipped for the challenge at hand. To make a long story just a little shorter… all of our old records and credit history of the past with this farm oriented organization were still accessible, making all our hard work from the past, worthwhile. What I’m wondering is… what would the world be like financially, if everyone tried to only spend within their means? A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. (Proverbs 11: 25) NIV

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack announces Advanced Biofuels Industry Roundtable The U.S. Department of Agriculture — along with the Department of Energy, and the Department of Navy — will co-host an Advanced Biofuels Industry Roundtable in Washington D.C. on May 18 as the next step in the partnership with the private sector to produce advanced biofuels to power military and commercial transportation. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the announcement during his keynote address to the Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference. “Advanced biofuels are a key component of President Obama’s ‘all-of-theabove’ energy strategy to limit the impact that foreign oil has on our economy and take control of our energy future,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “By bringing together farmers, scientists, and the private sector to produce fuel for the American military, we can help spur an industry producing biofuels from non-food feedstocks all over the nation, strengthen our

middle class, and help create an economy built to last.” “The Biofuels Industry Roundtable will produce the market and industry expertise necessary to develop a domestic biofuel market capable of producing alternative fuel that is costcompetitive with traditional fuel,” stated Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. “The Departments of Navy, Agriculture, and Energy are investing in an existing private industry to spur growth, and each department will closely monitor how that investment is used to achieve the president’s objectives.” The May 18, roundtable will focus on efforts to accelerate the production of bio-based fuels for military and commercial purposes. Last year, USDA, and the Departments of Energy and the Navy announced that — through the Defense Production Act — they will collaborate to accelerate the development of advanced, drop-in aviation

and marine biofuels and marine diesel to help power our military. Participants in this roundtable will discuss next steps for those interested in pursuing the production of aviation biofuels and marine diesel. Topics will include production, distribution and contracting, and best practices. This roundtable follows a “match making” event hosted recently at USDA headquarters to promote connections between agricultural producers of energy feedstocks, and biorefineries. In 2008, America imported 11 million barrels of oil a day. By the end of last year, that number dropped to 8.4 million barrels per day. In the last year alone, in part because of booming U.S. oil and gas production, more efficient cars and trucks, and a world-class refining sector that last year was a net exporter for the first time in 60 years, we have cut net imports by ten percent — a million barrels a day. And with the new fuel economy standards the Pres-

ident announced last year, we are on pace to meet our goal by the end of the decade. Developing advanced drop-in biofuels is another part of this comprehensive strategy to reduce America’s dependence of foreign oil. As part of that strategy, and at Secretary Vilsack’s direction, USDA is working to develop the national biofuels industry producing energy from non-food sources in every region of the country. We are conducting and encouraging research into innovative new energy technologies and processes, helping companies build biorefineries — including the first ever commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol facilities — and supporting farmers, ranchers, and businesses taking risks to pursue new opportunities in biofuels. Along with Federal partners, we’re establishing an aviation biofuels economy, and have expedited rules and efforts to promote production and commercialization of biofuels.

by Ann Swanson Mothers are the glue that holds families together Often it is the woman in the family that holds a family together.Women are by nature the nurturers. When a family loses its mother things are just not the same. I know that something happened inside of me when my mother passed away. Although she had been sick, the doctor could never figure out exactly what made her ill. When I think of my mother I do not think of her as she was that last year. I remember her in better days. When my mother died I became the oldest one

in my immediate family. That was a funny feeling. Mom was a strong woman, but she was very caring. She put everyone ahead of herself. She followed the commandment that said, “Honor your mother and father that their days might be long…”. We lived with my grandparents. They helped raise me. I am a product of my environment. I had the benefit of two generations of strong women. It was hard to fool my grandmother. She always knew what I was up to. If you are fortunate to still have your mother with you, be sure to honor her. The celebration

of them. A day to relax was what it was all about. The gifts were not what Mother’s Day was about.The day was about family. I did not need gifts. What I needed most was time. The best Mother’s Days were those when the family did something together. In the years that the children were away from home attending college I looked forward to a call from them. They say that the phone lines are the busiest they ever are on Mother’s Day. I suppose though with all of the ways we have to connect these days that has changed. Being a mother was one of my greatest joys. From the day my first child was born I cherished my time with my children. All phases of motherhood were fun. I knew as all mothers do that the children would not always need me as much as they did when they were babies. I just did not know at that time how much the children will always need me. I have a wonderful relationship with my children. There is a give and take at this point. I help them and they help me. I am so thankful

that my children live nearby. I realize that many mothers do not have that luxury. When I saw the graph in the newspaper the other day that noted that most children would leave this area after high school it saddened me. Family is what ties our lives together. A strong family life is something to treasure in my book. Although I moved away from home to become part of this country family I maintained close contact. My mother lived close enough to be part of the children’s lives. The American culture is one of the few that do not revere their elders. There is an attitude that it is all about me in this culture. That is so wrong. It does nothing to strengthen the family unit. In some countries several generations live under one roof. That is just the way it is. Children learn from their elders. They also learn to respect their elders. In America the oldest part of the population gets put into homes so that they are not a bother. Please note here that your Amish neighbors do not function that way. They

build additions to their homes so that the older generation stays nearby. In that respect I think they have the right idea. Now I am on to the next generation. My grandchildren spend a lot of time with me. That time has been well spent creating a bond that spans the generations. They enjoy coming to my house. They enjoy doing things with me. Last week it was grandparent’s day at school. My youngest grandson invited me for lunch. We had a good time sharing things from our lunchboxes and visiting. The class that sat behind us did not seem to have many visitors. What a shame! I am not sure if the children did not have grandparents nearby, or if they did not invite them, but it was an opportunity missed to connect the generations. As you prepare for this special day set aside to honor mothers think of the simple things that your mother might like. Most of all, plan to spend time with her.

does not need to be anything formal or fancy. A meal that she does not have to prepare is often a luxury. If you are a daughter with a family of your own you can certainly appreciate that. When I was a young mother I remember that I felt that I did not count when it came to Mother’s Day. My husband was not one to take over the responsibilities of the kitchen. He did not even like to grill. If we were going to eat on Mother’s Day, I had to cook. Of course, I invited the mothers. Sometimes my mother-in-law had other plans since she had a daughter as well as a son. There were times that I resented that responsibility. Now, I would give anything for a chance to cook for my mother and mother-in-law again. They were not hard to cook for. They loved whatever was put in front

Jefferson County Ag Districts enrollment to be taken during June The New York State Agricultural Districts Law requires counties to establish an annual 30day period to allow parcels of predominantly viable agricultural land to be added to existing New York State Certified Agricultural Districts in the County. The Jefferson County Board of Legislators has set June 1 through June 30 of each year for this purpose. There are three Agricultural Districts in Jefferson County comprising over 192,000 acres. Viable agricultural land is land that is actively farmed as well as inactive and non-farm acreage which is highly suitable for agricultural production. A parcel of land is “predominantly” viable if a minimum of 51 percent of the parcel meets the above definition. The purpose of New York State Certified Agricultural Districts is to

encourage the continued use of farmland for agricultural production. The Agricultural District Program is based on a combination of landowner incentives and protections, all of which are designed to forestall the conversion of farmland to non-agricultural uses. Potential benefits include limitation of the power to impose benefit assessments, eligibility for agricultural assessments, limitations on unreasonably restrictive local laws, and procedures for notice of intent for governmental acquisition of property interests or funding of infrastructure development. Landowners who wish to submit a request to add land to an existing New York State Certified Agricultural District should call the Jefferson County Department of Planning at 315-7853144 and ask for the

2012 Agricultural Individual Inclusion Form, or download the form from the Jefferson County web page at www.co.jefferson.ny.us, under Planning Department and then Agricultural District Inclusion Process. All requests

must be submitted on the form provided by the Planning Department and can be hand delivered, mailed or faxed to the Jefferson County Department of Planning, 175 Arsenal Street, Watertown, NY 13601. The fax number is 315- 785-

5092. Regardless of method of delivery, all requests must be received no later than 5 p.m. on June 30, 2012. As required by the State Agricultural Districts Law, only whole parcels may be included within an Agricul-

tural District. The Request Form to add land must be signed by the current landowners. Additional information may be obtained by calling Hartley Bonisteel or Michael Bourcy, 315785-3144, at the County Planning Department.

ness – including conditions that originate inside the hoof, and stresses and challenges from the environment in which the cow lives. The design and

management of both the flooring and the resting area in a dairy have a direct influence on the overall hoof health of the dairy herd. The Penn State Extension Dairy Team is hosting a webinar that will show producers how lameness develops, and how to design and manage dairy facilities to help promote healthy hooves. Titled “The Relationship between Flooring, Footing and Lameness,” the webinar will be presented by Dr. Ernest Hovingh, Penn State Extension veterinarian, and Dan McFarland, Penn State Extension engineer. It will be held Tuesday, May 8, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., Eastern time. It is free of charge. The webinar is part of the Technology Tuesdays series designed for dairy producers, their employees and agri-business professionals. The webinar format permits participants to enjoy an educational program, in real-time, from the comfort and convenience of their office computer. Participants will be able to ask questions of the presenters.

Although there is no fee to participate, advance registration is required no later than noon the day before the webinar. To register, contact the Penn State Extension Dairy Office, toll-free, at 888-373-7232 or register online at www.das.psu.edu/dairy-alliance/education/technology. Participants must have a high-speed Internet connection and speakers on their computer in order to see and hear the presentation. Past Technology Tuesdays webinars have focused on a myriad of cow-centered housing topics, including the design and management of resting areas, hot-weather management in freestall and tie stall dairies, feed and water system design and management, among others. Recordings of all past Technology Tuesdays webinars can be found at www.das.psu.edu/dairy-alliance/education/technology. This webinar series qualifies for SmartStart credits through AgChoice Farm Credit.

Lely starts North American production of dairy equipment Lely Group, the world leader in robotic milking systems, has expanded its North American presence with production facilities in Pella, Iowa. The expansion significantly increases Lely’s services to the North American market. The new space will be Lely’s first dairy production facility outside of their headquarters and production facilities in the Netherlands. The new facility was officially opened by Alexander van der Lely (CEO of the Lely Group) and his son Laurens on March 29. The dealer for Lely Group products in New York State is Finger Lakes Dairy Services of Seneca Falls, NY. Finger Lakes Dairy Services can be reached at 315-568-0955. Their office is located at 175 Ovid Street, Seneca Falls, NY 13148. To meet the increasing demand of

the North American market for dairy products, Lely has decided to start production in Iowa. With a view to operating faster, more efficiently and reducing transport costs, Lely has started its U.S. facility for the assembly of milking robots using locally sourced parts. The production site is located on the premises of Lely’s strategic forage solutions partner Vermeer, who has been working in alliance with Lely for over 20 years. The aim was not only building a production site for operations, but also to ensure ample office space for other Lely departments such as Technical and Customer Service and Farm Management Support. Lely USA has been headquartered in Pella for the past eight years. The North American market holds tremendous potential and Lely is seeing great

interest in its dairy products from family farms up to large scale dairy herds. Twenty years after its introduction the Lely Astronaut milking robot is still a very successful product, enabling the company to establish a leading international position in the dairy farming sector. More than 12,500 Lely Astronaut milking robots

have already been sold, while nowadays the yearly production totals about 3,000 milking robots. The production building in Pella is totalling 3,133 square meter with an additional 572 square meter office space and exuding a modern look that was inspired by the newest Lely Center in Bain de Bretagne, France.

by Linda Tripp, 4-H Youth Development Issue Leader A local organization and a local woman have been chosen by the 4-H Youth Development Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties to receive the Partner in 4-H Award. Holmquest Farm was presented the award given to a business or organization. Over the past several years and, especially last summer, Holmquest Farm enriched the lives of many youth in Columbia County by partnering with 4-H on several programs. The 4-H Junior Master Gardeners were treated to a program on-the-farm learning about the best practices of greenhouse gardening and farm stand management. Terri Holmquest spent a great deal of time talking to each youngster about the farm’s various enterprises and the ups and downs of being a farm entrepreneur. Terri also helped with the summer 4H Youth Garden program for the Hudson Youth Center by providing the vegetables for the cooking and tasting portion of the program. Many of these youth had never tasted many of the foods that were brought to their plate. Without her help we wouldn’t have been able to give them the full experience of vegetable diversity. Oprah Winfrey said “I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life”. Through Cornell Cooperative Extension’s partnership with Holmquest Farm, we jointly were able to touch many young lives in

Columbia County and introduce them to a new world of foods. The individual Partner in 4-H Award was presented to Louise McCord. She is an outstanding project volunteer for the 4-H Animal Science program. She is always willing to share her talents and licensed therapy dogs with 4-H, and has worked with Extension Educator Kelly Ann Radzik to design hands-on science-based programs that feature interaction with the dogs as a participation incentive. Louise has been involved with 4-H programs about responsible pet ownership, healthy lifestyles, veterinary science, and dog bite prevention. On her own initiative, Louise used her “volunteer points” from her therapy dog community service projects to provide “goodie bag” items for two large 4-H school programs reaching more than 200 children. As a retired elementary school teacher, Louise uses her expertise to delight young Cloverbud audiences with her active, engaging style. The Partner in 4-H Award was begun by the 4-H Youth Development Program Committee in 1994. The intent of this award is to recognize individuals, groups, business organizations, foundations, associations, government bodies and other institutions who have worked closely with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties in supporting 4-H. This special recognition is especially for those who have provided exemplary, significant, and distinctive contributions to the 4-H Youth Development Program.

Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties welcomes individuals and organizations to help support its mission. We are always in need of financial and in-kind support as well as teens and adults interested in working with youth. 4-H is New York’s only youth development program directly connected to the technological advances and latest research at Cornell University. 4-H

participants learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through hands-on projects in three primary program areas: science and technology; healthy living; and youth community action.

National Paper Clover Campaign continues support of Madison County 4-H Youth at local TSC Stores On April 18, the National 4-H Council announced the launch of the spring 2012 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks two years of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store fundraiser, benefiting state and local 4-H programming in each of the communities where a TSC or Del’s Farm and Feed Supply store is located. The spring 2012 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place from May 2 through May 13. Shoppers at the Hamilton and Oneida TSC stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Madison County by purchasing paper clovers for a $1 or more at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H, and will support 4-H youth development program activities in Madison County. “Through this highly impactful community event, we have been able to raise funds nationally over the past few years for thousands of 4-H youth across the country,” said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “We are more than pleased with the success of the 4H Paper Clover Campaign, and we are even more honored to continue the tremendous partnership that drives support for 4-H clubs and programs in the communities of more than 1,000

Tractor Supply Company and Del’s Feed and Farm Supply stores.” In just two years, the TSC 4-H Paper Clover Campaign has provided more than $1 million to 4-H across the country, with 70 percent of the funds returning to state and local 4-H programs. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics. “Our Paper Clover efforts are one of the key ways our stores can give back to the community,” said John Wendler, senior vice president of Marketing for Tractor Supply Company. “By providing essential funding for hundreds of thousands of 4-H young people, we are able to support local organizations that are important to both our customer and our Team Members. We’re proud to help improve the many communities in which we have stores through our partnership with 4-H. That is what Tractor Supply is all about.” This year, funds donated during the national campaign will be tracked online and recorded by state and by store.

The Moo News

Newsletter of Penn Dutch Cow Care by Hubert J. Karreman Hi Folks, It looks like it’s an early grazing year, at least earlier than average. I’d like to cover the grazing topic one time real well before the new season gets going, since I’m passionate about good grazing and seeing pasture land used efficiently and profitably. How do we know how much green, growing mass of edible plants are there for the animals once they arrive in a pasture field? Is there as much as you think? Or might there actually be more? Or possibly less than you thought? How will you really know? The question is this: are you providing the right amount of pasture space to match what the paper ration says that they are eating in pasture? Are you possibly giving them more space than what is needed — and therefore cheating yourself out of important pasture intake? Instead of guessing or giving some repeating amount of new area as you unwind the

poly wire, how about placing the poly wire so you actually are giving the cows the right amount of space to match the planned dry matter intake? So, how can we know how much pasture is actually out there — in real time, right now? It’s pretty simple actually. You need three basic things: 10 minutes once a week, a small batterypowered digital scale ($50) and a collapsible yard stick with sides of one foot each ($5). Using these, you can become an excellent manager of your land and grazing cattle. Without these, you may be giving them too much space and wasting your forage resources. How do I know this? By having clipped some 125 pasture samples and sizing paddocks in 2010, I found it doesn’t take much more than a small part of an acre for a 50 cow herd to meet the 30 percent dry matter intake required. How can you do this for yourself?? Identify a field where the herd will be for the week ahead and scout the

standing vegetation — then pick one average spot which the cows will graze. Next, outline one square foot of the standing pasture by placing your collapsible yard stick on the ground. Clip this one square foot sample down to about 3-4 inches (since you don’t want to graze the stand any shorter). Now weigh the sample, in ounces, on your digital scale. Next, multiply by .20 to figure much dry matter is there in that one square foot sample (since green growing plants contain basically 80 percent water). To then see how much dry matter is available in one acre worth of that sample you just clipped, multiply by 2850. The herd will not consume all of that, however, since they will trample some of it, urinate on parts and drop manure in some places — this is called refusal. Fortunately, the NRCS has done studies that show cows moved onto new paddocks every 24 hours will utilize 80 percent of what is given to them (refuse 20 percent).

Since good graziers move their cows every 12-24 hours, this 80 percent utilization is figured by multiplying the first answer by .80. So the entire calculation is: weight of fresh sample in ounces x .20 = dry weight of sample; x 2850 = dry weight of an acre of the sample; x .80 = weight of an acre that’s available to utilize. Now we can figure out what size paddock we will need for a herd of animals. It is safe to say that organic cows weighing about 1200 pounds will, on average, need about 45 pounds of dry feed per day (regardless if stored feed, fresh pasture or cardboard). And for this example, let’s exceed the organic minimum of 30 percent intake from pasture just a little, so let’s shoot for 33 percent (1/3) of their daily intake to come from pasture. Since 33 percent of 45 pounds is 15 pounds, then one cow will need 15 pounds from pasture for the day. Now say we have an acre of standing vegeta-

tion which we find to be 2000 pounds in dry weight from our clipping and quick calculation done right there in the field. Now take into account the 80 percent utilization rate. So in this example, a 2000 pound field stand will provide 1600 pounds to a herd grazing it. (2000 pounds x .80) Since we figured one cow needs 15 pounds

from pasture to get 33 percent dry matter intake, then that one cow put into that field of 1600 pound needs only .009 acres of that stand (15 pounds/1600 pounds = .009). Multiply that one cow by 50 cows (the herd) and 0.45 acres of that stand will be needed for 24 hours. And if the herd is moved up every 12 hours, they will need just 0.225 acre of that stand

— for the entire herd. That’s not even a quarter acre every 12 hours for an entire 50 cow herd! Now imagine if you had been moving up the same 50 cows to a new acre of that same stand every 12 hours but you actually only needed to provide .225 ac to get the 33 percent — I would say that you should’ve given yourself more dry matter intake credit than you

did. You could have potentially saved standing vegetation for later use — either for more grazing or harvesting it for stored feed. By not truly knowing what was out there, you either didn’t take enough credit for actually pasture intake and/or you were going through pasture at a faster rate than you needed to. Now, let’s look at that

same 1600 pound pasture stand from a different angle. Now let’s say the paper ration shows they’re getting 60 percent dry matter from the field. What size paddock would that same 50 cow herd need now? Take the same 45 pounds dry matter intake that one cow needs in a day (from whatever source — green grass to cardboard) but now multiply that by 60 percent to account for the new intake from pasture. One cow will now need to consume 28.8 pounds from pasture (versus the 15 pounds as shown earlier). Next, we again divide the pounds from pasture needed by one cow (28.8 pounds) by the same 1600 pounds that is standing there and now one cow will require .018 ac to take in 60 percent from pasture. Multiply that again by 50 cows and an increased paddock size of .9 ac (.018 x 50) for 24 hours is now needed. For 12 hours, it’ll be half that (.45 ac). If you’d been giving them 1 ac every 12 hours you again wouldn’t have taken enough dry matter intake credit. But now let’s say you don’t use a single string poly wire system — all you have is unmovable barbed wire fencing of 1 acre paddocks. You also don’t have a nutritionist or paper ration. For this example let’s say you like to move your 50 cow herd into a new 1 acre paddock every 12 hours. How much IS that 1 acre providing in percent dry matter intake, given the same 1600 pounds per acre in the stand to utilize? Those 50 cows can consume 32 pounds each from that 1 acre pasture paddock (1600 pounds available/50

cows). They still need to take in 45 pounds of feed daily, regardless if it’s from pasture or cardboard. In this example they are now receiving 71 percent of their dry matter intake from pasture (32 pounds from pasture /45 pounds needed from wherever). The 71 percent is the actual number which truly reflects what they are encountering and eating. These examples are to show you that unless you walk out into your field and take a simple one square foot representative sample to truly know how much “stuff” is standing there ready to be grazed, you could be wildly off in your thinking about how much dry matter intake they are receiving. For those using the “back calculation” method of simply taking the winter time ration dry matter provided and then a spring time paper ration showing less dry matter provided in the barn and thinking that the remainder is coming from pasture… please realize that you may be actually short changing yourself in actual dry matter being consumed out in pasture. Taking a simple real life pasture sample and weighing it is the simplest way you will ever come close to providing the correct space to reflect what you want them to be taking in. This method allows you to understand what paddocks provide in terms of dry matter intake and to manage better during dry times as well as lush growing times. So for a $60 investment and 10 minutes a week, you can learn how to key into the correctly balancing your cattle needs with what the pasture provides.

Anaerobic digesters and biogas safety by Patricia A. Westenbroek, Sullivan County, Cornell Cooperative Extension and Jerry Martin II, Environmental Engineer, USDA - ARS When manure is anaerobically digested, the biogas produced is primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide, with lesser amounts of hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and other gases. Each of these gases has safety issues. Overall, biogas risks include explosion, asphyxiation, disease, and hydrogen sulfide poisoning. Extreme caution is necessary when working with biogas. Adequate ventilation, appropriate precautions, good work practices, engineering controls, and adequate personal protective equipment will minimize the dangers associated with biogas. Wherever possible, digester -associated tasks and maintenance should be performed without anyone having to enter confined spaces, including pits. Systems should be initially designed so that confined space entry is not required to perform maintenance. Biogas Hazards Fire/Explosion Methane, approximately 60 percent of biogas, forms explosive mixtures in air. If biogas is diluted between 10 percent and 30 percent with air, there is an explosion hazard. In 2003, several explosions on Canadian

swine farms were thought to have been caused by the methane in biogas exploding (Choinière, 2004). Hydrogen sulfide and ammonia are also potentially explosive. Because of the explosion hazards, no open flames should ever be used near a digester. Also, equipment such as large engines and electric generators must be suitable to the environment so a spark will not ignite the gas. Explosion-proof equipment and electrical service, as well as non-sparking tools, should be used around digesters and biogas. There must be no smoking near the digester or related biogas lines and equipment. Asphyxiation Asphyxiation from biogas is a concern in an enclosed space where manure is stored. Osbern and Crapo (1981) report one case of three people who died from asphyxiation created by swine manure gas in an enclosed space. Even open-topped manure pits can generate methane at a sufficient rate to push out the air above the manure and render the space oxygendeficient. Never enter a facility where manure is stored or where there is a suspected biogas leak as natural ventilation cannot be trusted to dilute the explosion hazard sufficiently. Airing out a

Manure Handling facility does not impart safety, as some of the gases produced are heavier than air. If a person is found unconscious in such a facility, do not enter the facility because you may be overcome as well. Contact emergency services so that firefighters wearing self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) can safely retrieve the victim. Disease Animal manure contains bacteria, viruses and, possibly, parasites. Biogas is generated by the anaerobic digestion of manure, which occurs because of the bacteria present in animal wastes, some of which can produce infection. When handling waste material, exercise appropriate precautions by using personal protective equipment to avoid contact with manure. Wash-

ing after working around the digester is recommended. It is particularly recommended to wash hands before eating and drinking and before

touching the eyes or other mucous membranes. Keeping the digester facility clean will reduce disease hazards as well as the spread of odors

and fly populations in the digester facility. Precautions Manufacturer warnings

Environmental benefits of anaerobic digestion by Doug Hamilton, Oklahoma State University Waste Management Specialist The manure handling system of any farm is made up of many different components, each with a different function and purpose. An anaerobic digester, although only one component of the system, can greatly improve the environmental performance and efficiency of the overall system. The main effect of anaerobic digestion is conversion of or-

Anaerobic

ganic matter to biogas. This conversion has many potentially beneficial environmental and management side effects. Odor reduction By removing organic matter, the digester reduces the organic matter-loading and associated oxygen demand on downstream manure handling components. This may allow the downstream

Failure to heed manufacturer warnings may result in death or serious injury. Contact the manufacturer for maintenance and service requirements and availability of service. Safety walk-throughs A safety walk-through can help you determine potential hazards and preventative measures. Cornell University developed a comprehensive self-assessment guideline for farmers. It is intended to be used by farm owners and managers or farm staff who are responsible for the operations and/or maintenance of anaerobic digesters and their related processes. It provides guidance for process and job evaluation with suggestions based on typical potential hazards for farm digester systems and their associated preventative measures. Gas sensors Explosion, suffocation, and poisonous gas hazards may be detected using gas sensors. These sensors include both disposable and electronic sensors. Electronic sensors need testing regularly, and these sensors may have a disposable component that needs periodic replacement. Only qualified people should use

these sensors to determine if an area is safe. Personal protective equipment An area where manure is stored should never be entered without the appropriate personal protective equipment, which may include a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). The use of protective equipment

such as an SCBA is covered by OSHA regulations, and the operator must be certified in its use with equipment-fit testing and medical clearance. The information presented here is for reference purposes only. No liability is implied. Source: www.extension.org

less volatile odorants. Thus, storage and land application of digester effluent greatly reduces odor nuisance compared to raw manure. Uses for digested solids Manure solids are stabilized through anaerobic digestion. What was once reactive, partially digested material has been processed into stable microbial biomass and precipitated nutrients, although the majority of nutrients remain with the liquid. The potential to dry and transport digester solids is greatly improved over raw manure. The solids can be recycled and used for bedding or a soil amendment on the farm. The reduction in moisture content also increases the feasibility of selling the solids to farms that are greater distances away. In the right market conditions, composting the digested solids can result in a value-added product that can be sold to homeowners, gardeners or the landscape industry. Plant nutrients Plant nutrients are con-

served and transformed during anaerobic digestion. Ammonium is created from manure proteins. This can be a benefit or a nuisance. If injected immediately into the soil, ammonium-rich effluent is highly available for plant growth. On the other hand, if digester effluent is stored under anaerobic conditions, ammonium will convert to ammonia gas and escape to the atmosphere. Since digesters are also a reducing environment, the potential exists for capture of ammonium and soluble phosphorus through precipitation as struvite. Many metals are precipitated during anaerobic digestion. Sulfur is reduced to sulfide, which is generally a bad thing since it can escape as hydrogen sulfide gas. However, the digester environment can be manipulated so that sulfides are precipitated along with potentially harmful metals such as Ni and Zn. Greenhouse gases Anaerobic digestion results in the reduced emission of greenhouse

gases. This may seem ironic, since the methane contained in the resulting biogas is a powerful greenhouse gas. An anaerobic digester is a controlled environment that captures the methane. After capture, it is either flared or used to generate electricity and/or heat. When flared, the carbon dioxide formed in the combustion has less heat trapping potential than the original methane, and it is essentially recycled atmospheric carbon. What is released to the atmosphere through combustion of methane was once plant material formed through photosynthesis from atmospheric carbon dioxide. When used for energy generation, the biogas replaces power that might have otherwise been created through conversion of fossil fuel. Regardless, if the biogas is flared or used for energy generation, the farmer may be eligible for carbon credit payments. Anaerobic digestion on farms With all of the potential benefits, one might wonder why relatively few farms utilize these systems. One major reason is that anaerobic digesters are expensive to install and operate. The economic benefits have, in the past, been limited to a reduction in electricity purchased by the farm, which is not enough to offset the costs of the system. As the interest in renewable energy sources increases, farms are increasingly able to apply and receive carbon credits. Some farms also accept off-farm waste, collecting tipping fees, to co-digest with manure. In many states, more favorable netmetering laws have also made the economics more favorable. Power generated by the digester is valued at retail costs rather than wholesale costs. The decision to install a digester is often driven by additional considerations, such as nuisance issues. A digester greatly reduces the odor potential of the manure, which also greatly reduces neighbors’ complaints and the potential for lawsuits. At the current time, anaerobic digestion is slowly but surely increasing as a manure treatment method in the United States. Source: www.extension.org

Case IH Steiger tractors set new industry records for fuel efficiency RACINE, WI — The latest results from the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab show that Case IH Steiger® tractors with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology have set new industry records for fuel-efficient power. The Steiger 600, Steiger 500, Steiger 450 and Steiger 350 all showed significant fuel efficiency and drawbar horsepower advantages over the competition, according to test lab reports. “Steiger tractors are built with Case IH Efficient Power to pull the largest implements available, while reducing fuel costs,” says Mitch Kaiser, Case IH Steiger Tractor Marketing Manager. “These test results prove Steiger tractors perform and deliver in the field and in the lab.” For example, the Steiger 600 set the record for drawbar horsepower and fuel efficiency versus the competitions’ biggest tractor. Measured at maximum power in horsepowerhours-per-gallon, the Steiger 600 tested 8.4 percent more fuel efficient than the Deere 9630 at maximum drawbar pull, and 10.5 percent more fuel efficient at 75 percent drawbar pull maximum power. Mike Daigh of Taylorville, IL, says he’ll take his Steiger over any other tractor. “We have a 24-row planter and we haven’t had any issue with the Steiger when it comes to power — not pulling down, not hesitating, even going over hilly ground,” Daigh says. “You can do just about anything with this tractor. I’ll take Steiger over anything.” Engine research and meeting Tier 4 standards Several years ago, Case IH began to focus engine development efforts on SCR technology in order to meet Tier 4 standards. Case IH will meet the 2014 Tier 4B (Tier 4 Final) engine emissions standards using exclusively SCR technology found in the Steiger models. Cool-running and quiet, SCR is an engine exhaust after-treatment system. Rather than interfere with engine performance, it actually im-

proves it. Case IH Tier 4B technology will not require regeneration of particulate filters or any Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR) technology for high horsepower equipment. For Case IH customers who have pur-

chased Tier 4A equipment, there will be no additional requirements in 2014. Filling the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) tank is all it takes to reduce fuel consumption and extend service intervals. Case IH and Fiat Pow-

ertrain Technologies (FPT) have been working together on engine innovations that meet Tier 4 regulations for Case IH tractors and combines since 2004. The FPT U.S. Research & Development Center is in Burr Ridge, IL, in the same facility as

Case IH Engineering. Together, FPT and Case IH engineers work to design and test high-horsepower engines. Before these engines even enter the market, they go through several thousand hours of rigorous testing. Today, there are more than

10,000 Case IH tractors powered by Case IH SCR technology already performing in farmers’ fields across North America. Beyond power – new cab comfort In addition to power

Case A21


and fuel efficiency, Steiger tractors feature the most comfortable, productive cab on the market. Already boasting the largest cab in the industry with unprecedented visibility, the new Steiger cab is designed to function as an office in the field with exclusive, four-post cab suspension. Steiger tractors also feature an exclusive 40-degree, right-hand swivel seat, which provides operators a more ergonomic field of vision to see the front of the tractor while also monitoring the implement behind, minimizing neck strain. In conjunction with Case IH Advanced Farming Systems® (AFS) AccuGuideTM autoguidance, operators in the swivel position can more easily monitor the true productivity zone — the implement behind the tractor. Also, several cab controls have been relocated to the upper right-hand side of the cab headliner within easy reach, while the most frequently used functions are contained in the new MultiControl Armrest console, bringing all vital tractor operations into one easyto-operate controller. And, a new AFS Pro 700 color display is integrated into the MultiControl armrest, and moves with the seat. “Steiger tractors deliver the total tractor solution — efficient power combined with improved operator comfort,” says Kaiser. For more information, visit www.caseih.com.

More than 10,000 Steiger®, Magnum™ and Puma® tractors powered by Case IH Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology are already performing in farmers’ fields across North America and continue to be put to the test at the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab. Photos courtesy of Case IH

as biodiesel and renewable energy would not qualify as meeting the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) set by Congress. “We are seeing the conversion of rainforests to production agriculture in order to produce palm oil, which negatively impacts biodiversity and carbon sequestration,” said NFU President Roger Johnson. “Many palm oil plantations are draining peatlands, which has a significant impact on CO2 emis-

F UEL sions. Together, these two factors negate most of the benefits realized from using palm oil as a renewable fuel.” Because of the negative environmental impact caused by the reduction of rainforest land and draining of peatlands, the EPA’s analysis found that palm oil would not reduce

greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions enough to qualify under the RFS. “NFU supports the findings of EPA’s analysis, which indicates that biodiesel and renewable diesel produced from palm oil would not qualify as meeting the minimum 20 percent greenhouse gas (GHG) performance threshold for

renewable fuel under the RFS program,” said Johnson. “EPA’s analysis estimated lifecycle greenhouse gas emission reductions of 17 percent and 11 percent respectively for these biofuels compared to the statutory baseline petroleumbased diesel fuel used in the RFS program.”

Mad Cow Disease Here Again Issued Apr. 27, 2012 USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has confirmed the nation’s fourth case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a dairy cow from central California. Dairy Profit Weekly (DPW) reported

that the carcass was being held under state authority and will be destroyed. It was never presented for slaughter for human consumption, DPW reported, so did not present a risk to the food supply or human health and milk does not transmit BSE. Samples from the animal in question were tested at USDA’s

National Veterinary Services Laboratories in Ames, Iowa and confirmed the animal was positive for atypical BSE, a very rare form of the disease not generally associated with an animal consuming infected feed. FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks didn’t expect much impact on dairy markets however warned that the news could hit beef consumption and thus curb cheese consumption through lower demand for cheeseburgers. Cash block cheese closed the last Friday of April at $1.5350 per

pound, up three-quarter cents on the week, but 7 3/4-cents below a year ago. Barrel closed at $1.4350, down 2 1/2cents on the week, 16 3/4-cents below a year ago, and a dime below the blocks. Twenty eight cars of block traded hands on the week and 25 of barrel. The Ag Marketing Service (AMS) surveyed block price lost a penny- and-a-half and slipped to $1.5041. Barrel was down 2.2 cents, to $1.4891. American type cheese stocks stood at 621.9 million, up 14.2 million or 2 percent from February and 10.7 million or 2 percent above a year ago, according to USDA’s latest Cold Storage data. The total cheese inventory hit just over a billion

pounds again (first time since October 2011), up 2 percent from February, but 2 percent below a year ago. Traders said the report was pretty much as expected. Heavier than anticipated milk production across the country continues to find its way to cheese plants, according to USDA. Mid April production levels were at or near capacity in many areas. Midwest milk supplies were being offered to some cheese manufacturers at below class price enhancing production. Retail demand was lower than the previous two weeks as cheese features were not as prevalent in store ads. In some cases, retail prices have increased while wholesale prices are somewhat

steady. Export demand is good as U.S. prices are favorable compared to current prices in Oceania. Cash butter slipped to $1.36, down 5 1/4-cents on the week and 71 1/2cents below a year ago when the spot price gained 7 1/2-cents and hit $2.0750. Two cars sold on the week and the AMS price lost 2.2 cents, hitting $1.4408. Butter stocks are abundant compared to a year ago. The March 31 inventory stood at 210.6 million pounds, up just 5.4 million or 3 percent from February but a whopping 66.4 million pounds or 46 percent above those a year ago.

Mielke from B1 Easter/Passover holiday. Cream remains plentiful and USDA reports that many churns are running at or very near capacity levels. Many butter producers are able to manage their output at this time and be selective with their additional cream purchases. Butter demand has slowed considerably. In most instances, orders are being placed for near or short term needs as many buyers feel that further price weakness will develop as milk and cream volumes increase seasonally. Retail buyers are indicating that feature activity is limited, although advertised butter continues to be present in many grocery ads. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.1475, down 2 cents, and Extra Grade was also down 2, hitting $1.1075. Farm milk supplies are steady to slowly declining. Florida milk exports dropped 24 percent the week of April 16 (190 loads) compared to the previous week (250 loads). Production in the Pacific Northwest, Idaho, Utah and California continues to run ahead of 2011 volumes but is holding steady. Farm milk intakes in the up-

per Midwest continue to surpass year ago volumes and are holding steady. Arizona production, which is decreasing, reflects the arrival of warmer weather. Bottled milk demand is steady to lower. Milk handlers speculate the early arrival of warm weather in the Northern states decreased several weeks of mealtime milk consumption and pushed the calendar ahead to preferences for iced beverages. Cream demand from ice cream and ice cream mix end users hasn’t moved out of the doldrums yet, according to USDA. Looking “back to the futures;” after factoring in the announced Class III milk prices and the remaining futures, the average Class III milk price for the first six months of 2012 stood at $15.65 on March 2 and $15.83 on April 6. The last half of 2012 was averaging $16.20 on March 2, $16.52 on April 5, $16.26 on April 13, $15.95 on April 20, and was trading around $15.49 late morning on April 27.

of April to sell a total of 2.615 million pounds of cheese and 752,000 pounds of butter to customers in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America. The product will be delivered through July and raised 2012 CWT cheese exports to 46 million pounds plus 39.2 million of butter to 26 countries. CWT also announced that it will begin accepting requests for export

assistance for Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF). The decision was “the result of a thorough economic review of world market fundamentals and the potential return on investment for dairy producers,” according to the CWT. In dairy politics; the draft Farm Bill released April 20 by the Senate Agriculture Committee included the key components of National Milk’s

“Foundation for the Future” dairy policy reform in preparation for Agriculture Committee markup. Committee Chairwoman Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), along with Ranking Member Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), released the provisions of the entire farm bill, including the dairy legislative language. The Committee passed the bill April 26, 16 to 5, including the dairy re-

forms, and now moves to the full Senate for a vote. An amendment was going be offered by Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) that would strike the dairy market stabilization program and replace it with a stand-alone margin insurance program for dairy producers but it was withdrawn. IDFA’s Jerry Slominski said “We fully support a

Mielke from B2 margin insurance proposal without it being tied to a program that limits milk supply and manipulates prices. This (Bennet) amendment accomplishes the true compromise we have been urging for a long time.” National Milk countered that the amendment would have cost dairy farmers more than $400 million in additional expenses. DPW also reports that the committee did approve two amendments to the dairy title, without making major changes to the bill. One, offered by Sens. Johanns (R-Neb.) and Casey (DPa.), that authorizes a review of the Market Stabilization program at the end of the five-year farm bill lifespan; and a second, offered by Sen. Gillibrand (DN.Y.), that extends the MILC program through June 2013, at a reduced rate, so there is a safety net in place while the USDA implements the new dairy margin insurance program. The bill was not amended in any way that diminishes the value of the margin protection or market stabilization elements, according to NMPF CEO Jerry Kozak. Meanwhile; the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry heard testimony the same day on the dairy provisions. Part of the discussion included a new analysis of the dairy policy changes by Dr. Scott Brown of the University of Missouri and the Food and Agriculture Policy Research Institute (FAPRI), which was commissioned by the House Agriculture Com-

mittee. Brown said the reforms will have a minimal effect on milk production and dairy product exports, according to a NMPF press release. Brown’s report analyzes the Dairy Security Act (DSA), which features a voluntary margin insurance program to protect against low milk prices or high feed costs, with a basic level of coverage available to all producers for free, and a supplemental, expanded level of coverage available for farmers to purchase. If farmers enroll in the Dairy Producer Margin Protection Program, they will also be subject to the Dairy Market Stabilization Program, which asks them to reduce their milk output when margins are very low. NMPF said “The key takeaway from the FAPRI report is that the dairy reforms reduce margin volatility at the farm level, without negatively affecting the supply of milk to either domestic or international markets.” Two other farm groups, the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) and the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC), have endorsed the plan while two Midwest producer groups, the Dairy Business Association (DBA) and the Minnesota Milk Producers Association (MMPA) gave it a thumbs-down. The DBA has been vocal in their opposition of the supply control mechanism contained in the DSA, according to DPW, while the MMPA said the proposed legislation must remove all language referring to “Milk Stabilization.”

Center for Rural Affairs applauds amendment of Senate Farm Bill Farm payment limit loopholes closed for first time On April 26, the Center for Rural Affairs praised the Senate Agriculture Committee for closing loopholes in the farm payment limitation.

“We applaud the Senate Ag Committee for passing a Farm Bill that for the first time in a generation closes the gaping loopholes that have made a

Mielke from B10 grams, such as revenue insurance, typically used for other commodities. Those leaders included Miriam Erickson Brown, president and CEO of Anderson Erickson Dairy; Jon Davis, president and CEO of Davisco Foods International, Inc.; and David Ahlem, vice president of dairy procurement and policy for Hilmar Cheese Company, Incorporated who joined the IDFA in opposing the milk supply management program, called Dairy Market Stabilization. They charge that it would raise consumer prices, hurt exports, cost thousands of new jobs and stifle investments in new facilities. Jerry Slominski, IDFA senior vice president for legislative and economic affairs, said “Congress has been told that they can attempt to control milk supply and demand without harming consumers and the overall dairy industry, and that is simply not true.” Erickson Brown charged that the plan “will create a chain of events which will limit the milk supply for dairies like AE and result in higher milk prices for consumers.” “Last year, milk prices increased nationally on average by 11 percent, driving consumers to purchase fewer gallons of milk. A gallon of milk is the foundation for most dairies like ours.” NMPF’s Kozak testified that “America’s dairy farmers need a dramatically revised safety net in the next Farm Bill, one that shifts its emphasis from milk prices to margins,” and cited the collective loss of $20 billion in farmer equity that occurred between 2007 and 2009. “Current farm bill dairy programs are inadequate,” he argued. “Considering the higher cost of production that livestock producers are facing, and will continue

to face. With America’s farmers more reliant today on volatile export markets, better risk management tools are needed,” he said.

mockery of the farm program payment limitation,” said Chuck Hassebrook of the Center for Rural Affairs. “Most of all, we thank Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) for his tireless advocacy for reducing subsidies for mega farms to drive family farms out of business.” According to Hassebrook, closing the loopholes is a critical step. And the next step is to apply those limits to uncapped premium subsidies for federal crop in-

surance, the most expensive element of the farm program. “If one corporation farmed every acre in America,” said Hassebrook. “The federal government would pay 60 percent of its crop insurance premiums on every acre, every year.” “Crop insurance subsidies are highest in times of high prices — when they are needed least. That’s because it costs more to insure $6 corn than $4 corn. Crop in-

surance costs have doubled in the last 5 years and quadrupled in the last 10 years,” Hassebrook continued. The Center for Rural Affairs also praised Senators Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Sherrod Brown (DOH) for working to fund rural development programs through the farm bill. “If passed as it now stands,” said Hassebrook, “this farm bill will be the first in a generation to include no funding for rural development.”

Brown and Nelson are pressing to change that before the bill comes before the full Senate. The Center also praised Senators John Thune (R-SD), Ben Nelson (D-NE), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Mike Johanns (R-NE) for winning a sodsaver provision that will reduce federal crop insurance subsidy premiums for breaking out erosion prone native grasslands for crop production.

Wool production in New York State in 2010 was 245,000 pounds, according to the U.S. Agricul-

ture statistics Service. Add to that fiber from alpacas, llamas, rabbits, goats, and exotic animals such as camels, buffalo, and yak, and you have a LOT of yarn!! There seems to have been an explosion of knitters, spinners, weavers, felters and other practitioners of the fiber arts in recent years. Guilds are springing up in every part of the country. Getting fiber from local farm to

local artist can sometimes be tricky, however. Enter the CNY Fiber Artists and Producers, and the annual fiber fair they host in Bouckville, NY. The fair had humble beginnings, held for two years in conjunction with the Madison County Fair, with a handful of fiber vendors. It became obvious early on that a larger site was needed, according to organizer Pamela Haendle. The Central New York Fiber Festival includes fun activities for people of all ages.

“Our hope was to showcase fiber animals and the products that can be produced from them,” said Pam. “We saw a need for a local festival that would highlight the many fiber producers in our area, and connect their products with local fiber enthusiasts.” Pam obviously had the right idea. The first year at the site in Bouckville, over 45 vendors sold a variety of fiber, fiber-related, and farm products to over 600 attendees, in spite of a rainy weekend. There were workshops offered, as well as food, and children’s activities. Animals, including sheep, alpacas, goats, llamas, and rabbits were on display.

This year’s festival will be held on June 9 and 10, at the Butternut Campground, on Route 20, in Bouckville, NY. Workshops will again be offered, as will children’s activities, and maybe a few new surprises. “We hope to grow every year, but don’t want to lose our hometown feel,” says Pam. “If we can educate the general public about our animals, and provide an enjoyable afternoon for people interested in the fiber arts and local farm producers, we will achieve our goal.” Visit the group’s website at www.cnyfiber.org for more information on the organization and this year’s festival.

Prime time for sharing the story of agriculture by Ken Gordon Spring planting is in full swing in many parts of the country and is only a few weeks away in others. Most farmers have been preparing for this task since they wound down from fall harvest. Field work, particularly planting, is a highly visible undertaking for farmers. Because of that, planting season is ripe for farmers to engage with people who are not familiar with agriculture. It’s unfortunate that a lot of people have completely lost touch with where their food comes from or how it gets to their table or favorite restaurant. The editor of an agricultural publication once told the true story of an encounter she had with a person who made the dietary choice of being a vegetarian. That person truly believed it was okay, as a vegetarian, to eat chicken wings “Because they grow back.” Granted, this is an extreme example. But, a growing number of people have lost touch with farming. And farmers have found that explaining modern production agriculture isn’t always easy. That’s not always what people

are most interested in hearing about, anyway. Most people don’t want to hear national facts and figures about agriculture, either. And they don’t want to be on the receiving end of a one-sided lecture. They’re more interested in what the farmers near them do on their farms. This brings to mind a quote located in the Cox Corridors of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., Daniel Webster is credited with saying, “When tillage begins other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.” Those of us involved with agriculture know that what Webster said so many years ago remains true today, but as citizens pursued other arts, they have forgotten what brought our nation to prosperity. Still, many people are curious about today’s agriculture. An interesting dichotomy is that public curiosity with farming and ranching continues to increase as people become further removed from knowing how their food is produced. This presents a great opportunity to fill that knowledge gap.

More and more often, farmers are joining in the national conversation consumers are having about food and farming. By listening carefully, farmers often discover they can address concerns consumers have about food by sharing their stories about their farms. As urban populations expand into the countryside, farmers are finding increased opportunities to tell their stories. Interacting in this way helps consumers gain a true understanding of the passion farmers have for the environment, animal well being and how important, strong and viable farming methods are to our nation’s overall prosperity.

As you are turning that planter at the end of the row, you might just be asked to join in the conversation. Don’t hesitate to do so.

Obama administration pulls on-farm youth labor rule Agricultural community rallied against rule Citing concerns raised in “thousands of comments,” the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced April 26, it will withdraw its proposed rule regarding youth in agriculture. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President J.D. Alexander commended the administration’s action and said farmers and ranchers made their voices heard on the proposed rule, which could have restricted, and in some instances totally prevented, America’s youth from working on farms and ranches. “This is a victory for farm and ranch families throughout the country. This ridiculous rule would have prevented the next generation of farmers and ranchers from acquiring skills and passion for this very noble profession. It also would have restricted urban kids from working on farms and acquiring a solid worth ethic and enthusiasm for this very diverse industry,” said Alexander. “We absolutely have to have a sensible regulatory environment in Washington, D.C. We should not have to worry about negligent rules being promulgated by out-of-touch regulatory agencies. We encourage the administration to venture off the city sidewalks and learn more about where their food comes from.”

Alexander said this is not the first time the administration has proposed rules impacting agriculture before fully evaluating the consequences of the regulations. He said agency officials should reach out to farmers and ranchers prior to proposing a rule that could jeopardize the future of their profession. “Rather than strapping our hands behind our backs and preventing American youth from learning the ropes of food and fiber production from today’s farmers and ranchers, the administration should work with farmers and ranchers to ensure the rules on the books are workable,” Alexander said. “Rules and regulations, including those related to America’s youth working on farms and ranches, need to ensure safe working conditions. But the original proposal simply went too far. Cattlemen’s voices were heard.” Alexander said the administration’s action to withdraw the rule showcases the importance of farm and ranch families being engaged in decisions being made inside the Beltway. He said NCBA will work with the beef community, regulatory agencies and policymakers to ensure a similar rule does not resurface in the future.

The future is up for debate at Alltech’s 2012 Symposium The SMART debate at Alltech’s 2012 Symposium will be a dynamic conversation about what’s in store for the future of the world. Alltech’s 28th Annual International Symposium will be held May 20-23 in Lexington, KY. “This is our fourth annual debate and promises to be the most compelling, with a hard hitting and no-holds barred discussion of the real challenges facing the food and feed industries,” said Aidan Connolly, vice president of Corporate Accounts at Alltech. Panelists on the SMART debate will be CEO of Concern, based in Ireland,

Tom Arnold; Dr. Marcus Vinicius Pratini de Moraes, former minister of Brazil’s agriculture and food supply; Tom Dorr, CEO of Grains Council in Washington, D.C.; and senior lecturer in business economics at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom, Sean Rickard. Topics of the debate will include: • How will we feed 9 billion people? • Is Africa the new Brazil? What are the implications of the land grab in Africa? • Water — The fight for natural resources • Protecting the rainforests

• Educating urbanites about agriculture • Dealing with groups hostile to agriculture • Solutions for obesity • What ‘local’ really means Looking to 2050’s burgeoning population, Alltech’s 2012 Symposium will focus on ideas for better use of resources, improved business practices and natural nutritional solutions. New in 2012, breakout sessions will include legal, marketing, information technology and designer food in addition to the popular aquaculture, beef, dairy, equine, poultry, pig, pet and regulato-

ry-focused offerings. The event is expected to draw more than 2,500 delegates from around the world, making it the industry’s largest symposium. To secure your place at the 2012 Alltech Annual International Symposium, visit www.alltech.com/symposium or contact symposium@alltech. com. One day rates for Monday and Tuesday are $200 a day, with Wednesday’s session being $125.

Nation’s largest 100 agriculture co-ops post near-record sales, margins The nation’s 100 largest agriculture cooperatives reported nearrecord revenue of $118 billion in 2010, USDA Rural Development Under Secretary Dallas Tonsager announced on May 1. This was an increase of 4 percent over 2009 figures. Net income for the 100 top agriculture co-ops was also up more than 10 percent in 2010, reaching $2.39 billion, up from $2.16 billion in 2009. “Farmer and rancherowned cooperatives are a mainstay in the American economy, not only helping members market and process their

crops, milk and livestock and creating jobs, but also helping producers keep more of the earnings derived from their products at home, in rural counties and communities,” Tonsager said. “The end result is a huge net benefit for producers, their communities and the overall rural economy. Farmer co-ops also account for significant numbers of jobs and economic activity in many cities.” CHS Inc., a farm supply, grain and foods cooperative based in Saint Paul, MN, topped the list with 2010 revenue of $25.3 billion. Land O’

Lakes, a dairy foods and farm supply co-op, also based in Saint Paul, ranked second, with revenue of $11.1 billion; Dairy Farmers of America, based in Kansas City, MO, was third with $9.8 billion in 2010 revenue. USDA’s top 100 ag coop list shows that 23 coops had 2010 revenue of more than $1 billion. Another 47 co-ops had revenue between $506 million and $1 billion. The 100th ranked co-op had sales of $276 million. Leading the revenue increase from 2009 to 2010 were dairy cooperatives, which saw 2010 revenue climb more than 14.5 per-

cent from the previous year, to $29.5 billion. Dairy cooperatives accounted for more than half of the revenue increase recorded by the top 100 ag co-ops in 2010. Gross margins, as a percent of total sales, were up slightly, from 9 percent to 9.2 percent. The increase in gross margins partially covered higher expenses. Gross margins plus service revenue climbed to $684 million. Total expenses for the top 100 ag co-ops were up $575 million in 2010. The largest cost increase was for labor, where expenses climbed by 7 per-

Eastern New York State Wool Pool scheduled June 14-16 GREENWICH, NY — The second annual Southern Adirondack Fiber Producers Cooperative wool pool will be held June 1416 at the Washington County Fairgrounds on State Route 29 in Greenwich, NY. The pool hours will be noon-4 p.m. on Thursday, June 14; and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 15-16. A large national wool buyer is offering sheep farmers from throughout New York State and neighboring Massachusetts and Vermont excellent prices for their fiber. Three classes of wool will

be accepted: 1. Clean white wool at least 2-1/2 inches in length; 2. White offsorts including short and dirty fiber, and head and belly wool; and 3. Natural color wool. Farms with lots of 1,000 pounds or more are encouraged to call ahead; and to deliver their fiber to the Fairgrounds on Thursday afternoon, June 14. The pool is only accepting fiber from 2010, 2011,

and 2012 shearings. All sellers are asked to contribute some time to the pool when they are dropping off their fiber. Help needed includes unloading vehicles, taking empty bags and scraps home, and filling the baler. The Washington County Soil and Water Conservation District is lending the Coop its agricultural plastics recycling baler for use at the pool again this year.

cent, to $4.6 billion. On the other hand, lower interest rates and less debt caused interest expense to drop 11 percent. “While it is encouraging to see the nation’s largest farmer-owned cooperatives reporting strong revenue and income, it is also noteworthy that the nation is seeing a surge in the formation of small-farmer cooperatives and quasicooperatives that have been created to meet the growing demand for locally produced foods,” Tonsager said. The asset base for the

top 100 ag co-ops grew by $2.3 billion between 2009 and 2010. Current assets accounted for nearly two-thirds of that increase. Fixed assets also showed an increase of $600 million.

Back in 1912, the year BBB was founded, the marketplace was full of mistrust and abuses. It wasn’t until a small group of individuals rolled up their sleeves to fight against infractions of misleading and dishonest information that a more honest and ethical marketplace began to prevail. The BBB is proud to offer awards for students who, like their founders, fight for ethics today in a world that often seems to have lost its own moral compass. “This is an exciting opportunity for high-school students that hold true

to important values,” said David Polino, Better Business Bureau President. “We’re pleased to afford financial help to students that demonstrate ethical behavior. We’re grateful for AT&T’s support toward this well deserved recognition.” The Better Business Bureau’s Student of Integrity Scholarships will honor students for their demonstration of high ethical standards and personal integrity. To compete, students submit peer nominations that include a description of an ethical dilemma they faced and how

dustry for this momentous accomplishment,” said NCGA President Garry Niemeyer. “We have long understood the economic, environmental and national security benefits of this renewable, domestic fuel. Finally, the hard work invested in pushing to increase these benefits through increased ethanol usage can come to fruition.” Ethanol producers stepped up to provide the vast majority of the funding for this survey despite owning only a handful of the 160,000 gas stations that participate in the survey.

“Ethanol producers have taken on a proactive role in this process and American consumers will benefit,” said Niemeyer. “Ethanol has the capacity to lower staggering prices at the pump while also reducing pollution. With the survey in place, E15 is set for commercial sale as laid out by the EPA.” Now, efforts to promote E15 adoption will shift to focus on specific states with regulatory issues that act as an impediment. Notably some states, including Iowa, Illinois and Kansas, are prepared for commencement

of E15 sales immediately upon registration of all parties with EPA and implementation of the Misfueling Mitigation Plan. “We understand that some challenges may still arise, but this step forward renews our optimism that E15 will become a reality for American drivers,” said Niemeyer. “Now, we must overcome pending litigation and anti-ethanol rhetoric by some in Congress in order to reap the benefits of this transition.” Groups representing the ethanol industry, including the Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy and the American Coalition for Ethanol also spoke out in defense of E15 and to applaud progress. “America’s ethanol industry is committed to giving consumers greater choice at the pump by

making E15 a commercial reality,” said RFA, Growth Energy, and ACE. “We will work diligently with the petroleum industry, gas retailers, automakers, and consumers to ensure E15 is used properly. But we will not stand idly by and allow some of these interests to make wild and unsubstantiated claims about ethanol and E15 in order to malign ethanol and scare consumers. The fact remains that E15 is the most tested fuel ever approved by EPA and is perfectly safe and effective for those engines approved in the waiver.” The survey, which is required annually, will collect more than 7,500 samples of all gasoline types available nationwide.

Introduction to biogas and anaerobic digestion by Dan Ciolkosz, Extension Associate, Penn State and Pius Ndegwa, Washington State University On-farm biogas production has long been a topic of interest for farmers, with historical records of biogas production going back several hundreds of years. In modern livestock production systems, for example, the benefits of producing biogas are significant and include: • provision of supplemental renewable energy • odor reduction • reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases • pathogen control • waste biostabilization. The economics of biogas production, however, are sometimes difficult to justify unless the accompanying environmental benefits and other by-products are considered. What is a biogas? Biogas is a by-product of the anaerobic (without oxygen) breakdown of organic matter. The organic matter

could be any of a number of materials, but on the farm, it most often comprises animal manure or other agricultural waste. The most important component in biogas is methane, a flammable gas that can be used in furnaces, for cooking, or even as an engine fuel. However, biogas also contains carbon dioxide and small amounts of hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen, and water vapor. What is a digester? A digester is a sealed vessel or container in which anaerobic digestion of organic matter occurs. The bacteria “feed” off the manure and, in the process, release biogas as a by-product. This process is referred to as anaerobic digestion, and the sealed vessel or container is thus usually referred to as an anaerobic digester. Anaerobic digestion also occurs in the anaerobic zones of open or unsealed swamps, bogs, and wastewater lagoons. Today, farmers in developed countries are using digesters primarily to

Double-Crop Soybean Management for New York and New England For New York and New England, the viability of double-crop soybeans is largely dependent on favorable conditions during wheat harvest. Wheat harvest after July 12, is not conducive to double crop soybeans. Tips for managing wheat before planting double-crop soybeans: • Consider harvesting wheat at 20 percent grain moisture. Air drying wheat in storage will result in higher test weight and quality. This practice allows for a 3 to 5 day earlier planting window for soybeans. • Leaving 8 to 12 inches of wheat stubble in the field will help maintain soil moisture. Utilize no-till whenever possible. • Wheat straw should be baled or spread uniformly with the combine. Leaving heavy amounts of residue on the ground may result in poor seed/soil contact during soybean planting. • Some fungicides and excessive nitrogen rates can delay wheat maturity, which in turn can further delay soybean planting. Tips for managing double-crop soybeans: • Soil moisture must be charged in June as the later summer months typically do not provide enough moisture to produce a good soybean crop. • Plant as soon as possible after small grain harvest. Soybean yield could decline by as much as one bushel per acre for each day planting is delayed. It is generally not recommended to plant soybeans after July 12 in New York/New England.

• Plant double-crop soybeans deeper into moist soil, especially if the soil surface is dry. 1” to 1.5” planting depth is acceptable for most soil types. • Increasing seeding rates and narrow row widths have been shown to potentially increase yields in doublecropping systems. Varieties for New York/New England double-crop soybeans When selecting soybeans in New York/New England, consider your current planting maturities. Key points for soybean yield in a double crop situation are: • Height • Herbicide resistance for easier weed control of volunteer wheat Considerations: • Yield potential of double-crop soybeans in New York/New England averages 25-30 bushels per acre. • Advantages of above average bean prices may accommodate lower yield potentials. • Additional nitrogen credit of beans may help with corn rotation costs. • Double-crop soybeans can be injured by early frost, expect some green beans in the bin at harvest. • Weed control, including control of volunteer wheat, is important to avoid competition for moisture in the soybean crop.

improve the quality of their manure and to reduce manure odors, the energy content of the methane being simply a by-product. However, as the price of energy increases, more farmers are looking at using anaerobic digestion as a way to generate supplemental heat and electricity for their farms. Digesters are a popular technology in rural areas of the developing world, where electricity and petroleum fuels are often unavailable or unaffordable. What does a digester look like? Physically, digesters can come in many different shapes and sizes, varying from simple earthen lagoons to complex steel and concrete structures. In North America, the most common commercial farm digesters are usually buried concrete tanks with heavy plastic covers. How does a digester work? Fresh biomass entering a digester is supplied with anaerobic bacteria by the existing digested biomass, which is tremendously rich in these microbes. The digester tank provides a conducive environment for anaerobic microbes to “digest” the biomass, resulting in digested solids, liquids, and biogas. In general, the anaerobic digestion is a living process, requiring favorable conditions (temperature, moisture content, oxygen exclusion,and pH) and a steady food supply in order to flourish. What goes into a digester? Livestock manure is the most popular material, or feedstock, for anaerobic digestion on the farm, but almost any type of organic matter can be di-

gested, including food waste, forestry residue, animal processing waste, and field crops. What can go wrong? Probably the biggest problem in a digester occurs when the digester’s pH drops too low. In general, acid-forming bacteria grow much faster than methane-forming bacteria. This can reduce the pH to an unfavorable level for methane-forming bacteria, thus inhibiting the activity of methanogens. This is referred to souring and may result in failure or crashing of the anaerobic digester. In most cases, however, the pH is self-regulating, but bicarbonates are sometimes used to maintain consistent pH. The optimal pH range is between 6.8 to 8.5. Restarting a digester that has “soured” is not an easy task. Typically, the approach is to open the digester, excavate the soured material, then refill and restart the digester. This is a costly and unpleasant task and should be avoided whenever possible. There are risks in dealing with biogas, including explosion, asphyxiation, disease, or hydrogen sulfide poisoning. Operators must be aware of the potential hazards and take preventative measures. How is biogas used? Biogas generated from anaerobic digestion processes is a clean and environmentally friendly renewable fuel. There are many uses for this fuel, including use in engines, generation of electricity, heat and hot water systems, and even refrigeration. Source: www.extension.org

Create a home spa for Mother’s Day If you’re looking for an unusual (and budget-friendly) gift Mother’s Day, why not create a spa at home? You can pamper Mom using a few simple recipes that will make her feel loved from head to toe. When mixing your home spa treatments, use fresh, high quality ingredients for the best results. All of the ingredients can be found in your refrigerator, pantry or local grocery store. Never use ingredients for your home spa treatments that you wouldn’t want to eat. Your skin, the largest organ on your body, breathes and is porous. It will absorb the properties of the ingredients you are using. Finally, ensure the containers or jars you will be using are sterile by boiling them in hot water. This will help prevent contamination of your finished product, which could lead to spoilage. Do not store the assembled spa treatments any longer than the shelf life of the most perishable ingredient. A pretty box or basket filled with jars of your custom-made spa treatments, a decorative label you create, hand-written or printed instruction labels, and a note of appreciation for your Mom makes the perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

Seward: Vital farm safety program funded CORTLAND, NY — State Senator James L. Seward (R, C, I - Oneonta) on April 23 announced that the 2012-2013 state budget includes, at his insistence, $100,000 to protect New York farmers through continuation of the highly successful New York Rollover Protection System (ROPS) Rebate Program. “Agriculture is our state’s number one industry. It is vital to our economy and

our way of life,” said Senator Seward. “Ensuring our farmers have proper safety equipment is crucial and that is why I have strongly supported the ROPS rebate program since its inception.” Funding for the ROPS rebate program, and other agricultural programs, was left out of the governor’s initial budget proposal. Senator Seward led fellow upstate legislators in

fighting to have the funding included in the final state budget. “Despite our state’s economic situation, you cannot put a price tag on the lives of our farmers. In the grand scheme of a $132 billion dollar budget, the ROPS rebate program funding is a small expenditure, but it can mean the difference between life and death in the event of a tractor accident,” added Seward. The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) administers the ROPS program, now in its sixth year, which has outfitted over 1,000 tractors with the life-saving

rollover protection. “Our campaign has increased by tenfold the number of farmers making their tractors safe by retrofitting them with rollover protection systems,” said Dr. John May, director of NYCAMH. “This is important because a farmer’s risk of dying on the job is eight times higher than that of the average American worker.” Tractor overturns are the primary cause of these fatal and permanently crippling injuries. In the event of a rollover, the use of ROPS and a seat-

belt reduces the risk of injury by 99 percent. Use of ROPS without a seatbelt is less effective, but still reduces serious injury by 70 percent. Tractors built after 1985 have built-in rollover protection, but many tractors in use today are older than that. “We are grateful to Senator Seward and his colleagues in the state legislature for recognizing the need for this program and their continued support even in difficult financial times,” added Dr. May. “In our region we have been blessed with strong legislative concern for the well-being of New York farmers. This has helped make this life saving program an on-going reality.” “I’ve learned a lot

about farming from my dad, including the importance of safety,” said Mike Carroll of Cortland, a third-generation dairy farmer. Both Mike and his father Earl Carroll have utilized the ROPS rebate program to retrofit older tractors. “I am well aware of the risks associated with farming and want to do all I can to protect myself and anyone else who utilizes the tractors on our farm. While I have always practiced safe farming, knowing the rollover protection systems are in place provides additional security and peace of mind. I am extremely thankful that Senator Seward and NYCAMH have recognized the importance of providing

ROPS at a cost farmers can afford.” “Farmers deal with countless challenges every day. Anything that can be done to ease their financial burden and enhance farm safety in the process has my strong support. I congratulate NYCAMH on their leadership in this field and stand ready to partner with them moving forward in keeping our New York farms safe and productive,” Seward concluded. Farmers interested in more information should call toll-free 877-ROPSR4U (877-767-7748) or check on-line at ropsr4u.com. The rebate amounts to 70 percent of the cost of purchasing and installing rollover protection on a tractor, a savings of up to $865.
