Sixth generation of Danforth Jersey still producing better butter by Elizabeth A. Tomlin “Stars in the Milky Way, that’s what we think of our long line of purebred Jersey cows,” said Shannon Mason. Mason is the 6th generation of Danforth Jersey and, along with her mom, Gail, creator of Cowbella butter and yogurt. Shannon, who grew up on the 310-acre farm in Jefferson, NY, became manager of Danforth Jersey in 2006 when her grandfather passed on. Gail and Shannon began the Cowbella production with second generation Martha’s 1893 Chicago World Fair’s award for butter as their inspiration. “We wanted to preserve our family’s legacy,” Shannon said. That 1893 award is still proudly displayed in the Danforth farmhouse kitchen where Cowbella butter began. According to Shannon, the name ‘Cowbella’ was also an inspiration. “Cowbella just hit me all of a sudden, and I knew it was perfect,” Shannon explains. “I had spent some time in Italy in college, so the whole tie-in with the ‘ciao bella’ aspect of it made me happy.” Shannon says she believes that Jerseys are the perfect dairy cows for many reasons. “We’ve raised them for generations and as far as we’re concerned, they are the ideal breed of dairy cow,” she attests. “Firstly — and most importantly for a butter producer — Jerseys have the highest butterfat content in their milk out of all the dairy breeds. Jersey milk is the richest, creamiest, and, we think, the most delicious of any kind of milk you can get.” In addition, she states that the Jersey’s longevity, heartiness and personality are added bonuses. Danforth incorporates many traditional farming methods and old-fashioned values along with some modern methods, such as solar power at their processing plant, which is located right on the farm. One of the traditional

farming methods Danforth continues to follow is keeping the family at the heart of the farm. From breeding the cows that have the calves, which are raised to become the milk-producing cows that are milked to make the butter and yogurt, right down to the delivering of the products, a family member is involved in every step of the way. Shannon’s dad Dave Peake is one family member who is very involved in the farm and Cowbella business, taking care of orders and deliveries. “I married into the farm,” Dave said. “I graduated from Jefferson and worked here summers when I was in college. Gail and I were married and came back in 1975 and we’ve been here ever since. Since we’ve been here the farm has changed hands from Gail’s dad and his brother to Gail and her brother and now on to Shannon.” Dave says the farm is still milking the same genetically registered Jerseys as they always had been, however, in the 60s and 70s they were milking over 65 cows and currently they

are milking 40, with about 40 youngstock — including bull calves that are raised as steers for beef. “The yogurt, in one sense was a by-product of the butter, because the primary emphasis was to make the butter, but that still leaves you about 95 percent of your milk to do something with.” Dave explains, “What we’re doing is making a non-fat skim milk yogurt out of the skim milk that we have.” Danforth was licensed to produce butter and yogurt commercially in November 2010. Making butter was an exciting undertaking. “We experimented with many flavors and varieties! We offer honey-cinnamon, maple, orange-cranberry, fig-vanilla, garlicoregano, lemon-dill, plain and salted, as well as other seasonal flavors.” Plain and maple flavored yogurt is available year round, with seasonal fruit flavors available in season. Shannon said, “We use local herbs, fruits, maple, and honey in our products whenever possible. Our maple products come from Buck’s Maple Barn here in Jefferson. Strawberries for our yogurt come from Bohringer’s Fruit Farm in

by Sally Colby Farmers and commodity groups have done a decent job educating consumers about food and food sources, but it seems that the more people know, the more they want to know. Do we have answers? “A lot of factors have brought this to the forefront in the last year or two,” said Dr. Ernest Hovingh, Penn State University extension veterinarian, referring to the recent interest from consumers about animal welfare issues. “The animal welfare and animals rights groups are out there, and have been for quite a long time. Consumers are also driving it to some extent. Then between the producer and consumer are the retailers and processors who want to make sure that they aren’t losing market shares.” Another major factor is that that consumers are increasingly remote from agriculture, and not involved with food production systems. With each generation, this problem becomes compounded. “Pets are peoples’ connection to the animal world,” said Hovingh. “That’s what they think of when they think of animals. They think that that’s the way animals should be treated (as pets) and that that’s the role all animals should have. They have a difficult time thinking of animals in a non-pet role.” Add this to the globalization of food production and the amount of transportation involved in moving food from the source to the consumer. “People don’t know where their food comes from, then they hear scares about food being contaminated,” said Hovingh, adding that mistrust grows when con-

sumers don’t have easy access to farmers. “There’s also an increasing access to the vegetarian lifestyle and it’s easier for people to access those food options.” Philosophical arguments about whether there’s much difference between humans and animals also becomes a public perception issue. “The ultimate goal of groups such as HSUS, PETA and MFA is no animal ag at all,” said Hovingh, noting that it’s impossible to change the viewpoints of such groups. “We have to realize that they’re able to influence consumers, so even if we aren’t going to change such groups, we have to realize that they’re pretty effective in addressing consumers.” Hovingh added that unfortunately, it isn’t too hard for animal rights groups to find ‘bad apples’ — farmers who are clearly not doing the best they can for animal welfare. Although such groups started by attacking practices at slaughter facilities, they’ve now moved to farms and manage to put out information that influences consumers about how cows are treated. What’s the best way to respond to these groups? Hovingh says some farmers take the fatalistic approach — they just keep on doing what they’re doing because animal rights groups are going to tell them what to do anyway; especially in the case of everchanging practices in the hog and poultry industry. Hovingh belives that it’s possible for the dairy industry to ‘stay off the radar screen’ by doing things right. Hovingh says the government has expressed that they have no desire to

PDMP Dairy Issues Forum focuses on beef quality for additional income to farmers

by Jon M. Casey When it comes to a an easy, though often-forgotten way to increase income to the typical dairy operation, the body conditioning and health of the dairy cows that are sent to the packing house is not often considered by most dairy producers. If a dairy cow that is no longer part of the milking herd is sent to market with a higher degree of conditioning, not only does the packer and the consumer benefit from this higher grade and yield of beef, but the producer does as well. PDMP’s June 7 Dairy Issues Forum, on the campus of Penn State in State College, was focused on doing just that. Hosted as a joint collaboration between the Professional Dairy managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) and the PA Beef Council, dairy producers were able to observe how closer adherence to the Dairy Animal Care and Quality Assurance guidelines, will yield a more profitable return over time. Comparison: “On the rail” Based on a side-by-side comparison of two similar dairy cow carcasses that had been slaughtered and butchered in like fashion, Dr. Edward Mills explained how the difference in these two animals revealed a net gain in profit to the dairyman of more than $180. With the better quality animal

weighing 1304 pounds and yielding 222.8 pounds of lean meat versus the 1075-pound cow yielding 167.0 pounds of lean, PDMP members were quickly able to see the benefits of doing a better job feeding and preparing cull cows before taking them to slaughter. The difference between the live sale price of the better animal at $89 per CWT, versus the $82 per CWT that the lighter animal received, meant that all other things being equal, the need for conditioning could yield a significant return. Proper injection and handling creates less waste In an outdoor demonstration outside the Penn State Meats Laboratory, Dr. David Wolfgang offered attendees the opportunity to see the importance of where and how injections to dairy cattle can affect the carcass quality of the animal. He also highlighted the penalties producers have to pay in the form of less income for damaged or condemned meat. With cuts of meat tissue from a slaughtered heifer that had been taken to market because of her poor health, he showed how the injection sites revealed the impact of medications (even injections that are needed for the health and safety of the animal) affect the quality of the meat in the area surrounding the injection point. He also showed the group how bruises

Dr. Ernest Hovingh offered ideas on how to handle dairy cattle with a minimum of pain to the animal. Additionally, he discussed the reasoning behind the recent increase in milk testing by FDA. Photo by Jon M. Casey

and other earlier tissue damage could penalize the producer as well. “This is why the packing plants automatically assess each animal with a $50 penalty,” he said. “They routinely are required to remove an average of about 50 pounds of meat per animal because of this kind of meat damage. Just imagine, at one of Pennsylvania’s packing plants alone, one that will process approximately 300,000 head per year, that amount of beef is $15 million worth of meat byproducts that are not used in any way. These cuts usually go to a landfill. In today’s environment, this does not even get used as meat and bone meal.” Drug residues and animal handling techniques affect profits Dr. Ernest Hovingh discussed the affects pain has on dairy cattle and how, over the long term, weight loss, drop in milk production, bruising and lameness all tie together to reduce the profitability of animals that do not receive high quality care. Along those same lines, he outlined recent changes in FDA testing standards for drug residues in milk. Because of the disproportionate amount of carcass residues in dairy beef versus those found in beef cattle breeds, regulators are taking a closer look. He noted while dairy cattle only make up 7.7 percent of the total beef production in the U.S., they account for 67 percent of the violations of antibiotic residues detected by FSIS in slaughter cattle. This lopsided history of sampling has prompted FDA to modify their testing regimen as a way to protect the consumer. Accordingly, dairy producers are becoming more aware of the increased oversight as they prepare their cull cows for market. “The primary reason for the increase

of residues is varied,” he said. In survey work gathered in 2008, the three top reasons for drug residue violations were; failure to maintain animal ID and medication records; inadequate animal segregation; and animals treated with higher than prescribed doses of the medication. Most drug residues were found in intramuscular locations, which detracted from the overall carcass quality and yield. Hovingh reported additional drug residue in the animal’s liver was cause for alarm among regulators as well. The finding of flunixin (an active ingredient in Banamine®, has caused the FDA to take a closer look as well. With a finding that 0.8 percent of dairy cow livers from healthy animals showed a level of flunixin in violation of prescribed levels. Since 2.5 million dairy cows are slaughtered each year, a 0.8 percent level of affected animals would calculate out to be more than 20,000 violations per year. This is far lower than the current number regulators are actually finding. Thus, they are increasing milk testing for these and other drug residues. Following the morning of informational sessions, PDMP members were treated to a picnic lunch at the Major League, “Spikes” Class-A baseball team’s ballpark, located next to Penn State’s football stadium on the Penn State campus. Once the picnic concluded, members had the opportunity to travel to Belleville, PA, for a farm tour of Kish View Farms, a dairy operation owned and operated by Keith and Kent Spicher. For more information on future PDMP events including their tour of Cargill Meats in Wyalusing, PA, later this summer, contact them at 877-326-5993 or at info@pdmp.org.

by Pat Malin VERONA, NY — Nineyear-old Brendon Reilley got a good lickin’ for missing school and instead attending the Oneida County Farm Fest on June 1. His mother, Carrie Reilley of Syracuse, brought Brendon to the event, so she obviously approved of the trip. Nevertheless, a friendly Holstein, who stood about 10 feet above the visitors on the raised deck in the milking parlor, used her tongue to lash out and caress Brendon’s neck as a group of children toured the Brabant Farm. Brendon happened to wander too close to the gate above his head, and his fluorescent orange hoodie seemed a bit like waving a red flag in front of a bull. This group of home-schooled children and their parents listened as Paul van Lieshout, one of the partners on the family farm, explained all the bells and whistles, the pumps, the computers and the sanitary, methodical process of milking cows. Mrs. Reilley felt the Farm Fest was instruc-

tional for her son as well as her six-year-old daughter, Emma, who is in her first year of homeschooling. “We work it (the Farm Fest) into their school lessons,” Carrie Reilley said. “It’s a good opportunity to learn where their food comes from. They get to see the difference between baby cows and the milking cows and to see where butter and milk come from. That’s a science lesson. We also get to study local and New York history, and maybe a little arithmetic.” She said the children toured 10 “stations,” and spent about 15 minutes to a half hour at each location, such as the milking parlor, the calf barn, the corn maze and the hayride. Despite his entertaining view of life on a farm, Brendon said he still plans to be a cop when he grows up. Only now he had more reasons, he said, to enjoy milk, ice cream and yogurt. Rob Stevenson of Wampsville and Melanie Dempster of Bridgeport were among a group of parents who brought their home-schooled children to the Brabant Farm. There were three

groups of homeschoolers, plus students from 12 public schools in Oneida, Madison and Onondaga counties, a total of approximately 1,040 students who attended Farm Fest. Stevenson’s 7-year-old son, Connor, is more used to seeing horses, but his father also believed the farm has an educational value. “We need to do more of these (field trips),” the elder Stevenson said. Because of home schooling, where he says his children get “more personalized attention,” it’s easier to participate in these special events. His mother’s father used to own a farm a Canastota, he noted, but the family didn’t carry on the business. After the schoolchildren left, the Farm Fest committee and volunteers had about an hour to catch their breath, to relax and get a bite to eat before the next wave of guests came through. The gates opened at 4 p.m. for the public. Some 2,000 adults from the community attended the annual, day-long event that was marked with some heavy rain in the afternoon. “Considering the weather and different location, we were pleased with the attendance in 2012,” said Kristi A. Cranwell, school educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension. “This was the first time it has rained on us since 2006.” Farm Fest drew 4,000 guests in 2011 and about 3,000 in 2010 when it was held at the DiNitto Farm in Marcy, which is halfway between the cities of Rome and Utica. Brabant Farm, located on Happy Valley Road in Verona is at the western edge of the county between Rome and Syracuse. The van Lieshout family actually hosted the original Oneida County Farm Fest when it made its debut in 1998 and shortly after it first earned its Dairy of

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Ground Warfare — Insect Style Let’s talk about armyworms (Pseudaleta unipuncta). Local offices of Cornell Cooperative Extension are trying to pin-point where these insects came from. “I’m thinking south of Illinois, Georgia, maybe towards Texas. We don’t have a good idea. It’s just the southern states in general that they tend to over-winter in,” said Sharon Bachman who represents Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County. We know that these pests did come here as moths, and laid millions of eggs all over western New York. Experts say our mild winter and early spring played a significant role. “The weather conditions were right for them to move maybe earlier or further north than they typically would,” said Bachman. She said that armyworms are also picky eaters who much prefer grasses to broadleaves (including broadleaf weeds). “Alfalfa or clover, they don’t eat that. They’re specific to their grass host plants,” said Bachman. It’s a farmer’s worst nightmare, and the problem continues to spread, and they’re eating crops that are nearly ready to be harvested. Unfortunately for one farmer in Erie County, armyworms have destroyed a good portion of his spring-planted wheat crop in just two days. For most small-grain growers in New York, fallplanted grains appear less vulnerable to this caterpillar pest than spring-planted crops. One armyworm expert said that these pests are flourishing because as they migrated north they left behind their natural enemy, a type of wasp. On the Internet I found an extension bulletin from Penn State titled “Army-

worm as a Pest of Field Corn” (ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/a rmyworm). I’ll hit the high spots of the bulletin, written by Marvin E. Rice. True armyworm (P. unipuncta) is a native species widely distributed throughout the United States east of the Rocky Mountains. It is well-known as an occasional serious pest of small grains and corn. With the increase of reduced-tillage culture and planting corn into sod and small grain cover crops (particularly rye), armyworm damage to corn has sharply increased during the past decade. Rice agrees with Bachman that armyworms primarily feed on plants in the grass family, but under hunger stress armyworms will also attack some legumes and other broadleaves. Conventionally tilled corn is seldom damaged. Problems most frequently occur in reducedtillage corn, planted in old sod, grassy fields, or small-grain cover crops. First generation larvae active from mid-May to mid-June, can cause extensive defoliation to small corn plants. Stand losses are usually low to moderate but in some cases may be severe enough to warrant replanting. Armyworm moths are uniformly pale brown, with a prominent white dot near the center of the front wings, and a wing-spread of about 1.5 inches. The moths hide in the grass and trash during the day, but are active at night. The eggs are laid in clusters or rows on lower leaves of grass and corn plants. Newly hatched larvae are mostly pale green. During the day, they hide in the folded leaves in the whorl of the corn plant. Upon becoming half-grown (3/4 to 1 inch) their body color turns basi-

cally brown with color variation among individual worms. Full-grown worms are about 1.5 inches in length with a narrow broken white stripe down the center of the back, as well as stripes along each side of the body. The larvae feed on the leaves at night. The caterpillar stage lasts about three weeks, but the caterpillars are usually 10 to 14 days old before damage is noticed. By this time, many of the larvae will have small, white eggs stuck to their bodies, behind the head. These are wasp eggs which hatch into parasite maggots which enter the armyworm’s body, thus killing the armyworm. Those larvae that reach maturity dig into the soil to pupate. Next generation moths emerge about

15 to 18 days later. Armyworms tend to over-winter south of the MasonDixon Line, as partially grown larvae under plant trash and in clumps of grass, and as pupae in the soil. Moths emerge from early May to early June and migrate northward. Flights of armyworm moths can be detected with pheromone traps. Adult moths lay eggs on weeds and/or grasses along field margins, on leaves of corn, or on small grains. When eggs are not laid on corn, caterpillars move to corn when weeds or grain cover crops are killed with herbicides. Fully grown larvae pupate in the soil and this stage lasts about 15 days

SENECA FALLS, NY — Each day at 11:30 a.m. at the Aug. 7-9, 2012 Empire Farm Days at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY, Cornell University Beef Extension Specialist Dr. Michael J. Baker will be demonstrating the proper equipment and methods for handling cattle. Baker will show how to safely handle cattle using a system with a pen, chutes and head gates near the New York Beef Industry Council display and New York Beef Producers barbecue. Dr. Baker and the demonstration’s sponsoring equipment manufacturer representatives will be available to answer questions.

“Proper handling facilities are a requirement for handling beef cattle for the safety of the animals and the farmer,” Baker says. A good system facilitates routine health management practices such as vaccination and internal parasite control application.” New York Beef Industry Council Executive Director Carol Gillis agrees: “A well-designed system that enables the safe and efficient handling of cattle is one of the most important investments for beginning beef producers, and goes hand-in-hand with the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Program that educates producers on animal handling and management practices to ensure

safe, wholesome beef for consumers.” The Cattle Handling Demonstrations are part of the New York Beef Industry Center at Empire Farm Days. Show visitors will find beef production, management and marketing resources, and information on cattle health, the BQA program, and Beef Checkoff Program at the Center located across from the New York Beef Producers Association Barbecue tent. Center exhibits and activities also include a live animal beef breeds display. The Empire Farms Days includes 300 acres of exhibits, 600-plus representatives of agricultural institutions and organizations, DairyProfit and

Equine Center Seminars, farm family life displays and activities, tractor, ATV and truck test drives and more.

The culprit usually can be found hiding well down in the whorl or at ground level under clumps of grass. Conventionally planted corn occasionally may be damaged by caterpillars that originate in a nearby smallgrain field, but poorly managed smallgrain cover crops appear to be a frequent source of caterpillars; when the cover crop is killed, armyworms will

move to the corn. When armyworms are numerous, small corn plants may be completely eaten down to the midribs. On very rare occasions, larvae of the second generation may attack corn in late July and August. Chemical (or even biological) control efforts are usually not economical unless 10 percent or more of the plants are infested, and control can be challenging if caterpillars are greater than one-inch long. On or about June 18, one respected Finger Lakes organic crop grower observed dead armyworm caterpillars, of different maturity stages, in his wheat and corn fields. He believes that para-

site wasps and/or armyworm-targeting viruses finally caught up with the hated caterpillars... similar to how the alfalfa weevil wasp does its thing. That same organic crop grower talked to a field crops extension agent, who prefaced the following comment with “you didn’t hear it from me”: “natural Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) used to kill armyworms very effectively, but now with widespread use of crops genetically-modified to produce their own Bt insecticide, most armyworms have developed Bt immunity”. Or in my words: no more nice guys.

Crop from A6 with new moths emerging in July. Second generation larvae generally cause little damage. Armyworm damage is observed most frequently in no-till fields that were sod last year or had small-grain cover crops that were not burned down with herbicides early enough in spring. First symptoms are ragged feeding on the top leaves with wet, brown pellets (feces) in the area.

Vermeer introduces updated Cornstalk Special Baler with Inline Ramp Vermeer’s 605 Super M Cornstalk Special Baler makes baling cornstalks as easy as baling hay — and now enhanced with the optional Inline™ Ramp, picking up cornstalk bales is even easier. The Inline Ramp positions bales so you can pick them up along the rows without the need to drive over ridges and cornstalks, helping you save time in the field and making the bale loading process smoother. In addition, the updated Cornstalk Special includes a new, durable O-ring chain in high-wear locations to withstand the harsh conditions of cornstalk baling. “The Cornstalk Special baler is built to make cornstalk baling easy from start to finish. Not only is the baler designed to efficiently bale cornstalks and withstand the conditions of doing so, but now the optional Inline Ramp makes the loading process more efficient as well,” says Phil Chrisman, Vermeer Baler Product Manager. “Driving through the field over ridges and rows to pick up bales can be a slow, difficult

process. But by turning the bales with the Inline Ramp so they sit with the rows, an operator can easily drive along the rows to pick up bales more quickly, and at the same time reduce the need to move the bales for loading.” To complement the durable features of the Cornstalk Special, the new Oring chain can better withstand the dust and dirt contamination that comes with cornstalk baling. “Durability is the key to the Cornstalk Special. Utilizing this O-ring chain in the places where dust and dirt contamination issues commonly occur will help eliminate some maintenance time and further enhance the durability of the baler,” continues Chrisman. In addition to these updates, the 605 Super M Cornstalk Special includes the features farmers have come to depend on for efficient cornstalk baling. The patented powered windguard improves feeding of the cornstalk material and provides easy clearing of pickup blockages by reversing the windguard

by William Gehm, Partner LR Gehm LLC Dairy farmers were introduced to European SCC regulations in January of this year while mastitis remains the most costly problem on dairy farms as it has been for decades. The time has long since passed for dairy farmers to demand a solution to mastitis other than the standard fare of cleanliness and procedures routinely offered by the industry “experts” as a solution. More creative excuses have been put forth in recent years with many blaming mastitis and poor milking per-

formance on genetics, as if those uneven udders after a few months of milking are your poor choice in breeding. The fundamental message at the Mastitis Conference in Utrecht Netherlands in November 2011 was the same as that of the NMC and the endless mastitis meetings which is “blame-the-farmer”. One university speaker stated that “mastitis is a symptom of management” focusing on the belief that it is the management practices of the farmer that result in mastitis. The short summary from the confer-

ence is that mastitis is a result of the failure of dairy farmers to follow simple directions when it comes to cleanliness and milking procedures. In order to solve a problem one must first identify the root cause of the problem. Too many individuals focus on the fact that mastitis is caused by a bacterial infection and determine the cause is a lack of cleanliness with a solution wrapped around keeping teats clean. This is driving dairy farmers to pursue a hopeless cycle of cleaning, testing, treating, dumping and culling. The simple fact is

that it is neither economical nor successful to prevent mastitis by cleaning teats, routinely testing for mastitis/high SCC and then reacting with treating and dumping milk when the end result is more culled cows. None of this addresses incomplete milkouts, uneven udders, teats leaking milk, kicking cows and other issues. It should be obvious to anyone who has ever milked a cow with a machine that the milking machine plays a primary role in milking performance, udder health and milk quality, it is after all what milks the cow.

teats are bathed with milk during the milking process.” This fact is readily observed following the machine removal from cows milked with a conventional milking machine. It is therefore obvious that milking machines are driving bacteria back up to the teat throughout the milking process. There is no teat dip or any other form of protection available during that time period to prevent infections that will cause mastitis. You should ask how can you possibly prevent mastitis infections when your milking machine is bathing the teats in milk for the entire time the machine is attached. Following the milking process the teat canals typically fail to close in a timely manner to prevent bacterial invasions while the cow is in the freestall. Research by Dr. Randy Dingwell determined that teat canals

There exist numerous documented studies proving that the root cause of mastitis and poor milking performance is fundamentally caused by the milking machine. Consider the following facts. Researchers at the Ireland based Teasgasc documented the fact that cows milked with conventional milking machines routinely experience both swollen teats and physical damage to teat canals, termed teat sinus injury by the researchers. You can readily observe both of those facts by noting the reddened swollen teats upon machine removal and can physically feel the teat sinus injury (scar tissue) by lightly pinching and rolling the teat end of a teat associated with a slow milking quarter. Dr. Andy Johnson stated at the 2000 NMC annual meeting that the “milking machine is one of the best washing machines ever built, the

Mastitis from A9 often fail to close after milking and that “a research study indicates that 23.4 percent of teats are not sealed at 6 weeks after drying off, and some never form a keratin plug during the dry period.” Basically the door is left open for bacteria to gain entry to cause infections. You can note this yourself as you observe cows leaking milk in the freestall shortly after leaving the parlor. Do you expect your post teat dip to prevent mastitis for many hours given that the teat canal remains open? Research completed by Dr. Derek Forbes provides the most direct proof that conventional milking machines cause mastitis. Dr. Forbes determined that non-motile bacteria, such as Staph Aureus, is forced up the teat canal during the milking process by the pinching action of the liner. He determined that Staph aureus can remain in the canal for weeks without causing an infection if not forced up the canal. If the contaminated teat canal is pinched by a liner the result is effectively a reverse milking action that forces the bacteria up the canal to cause an infection. You can validate this yourself by placing your fingers into a working liner and feeling the pinching action of the liner. Note that the liner is applying pressure at the tip of your finger pushing up in a manner that is the opposite of hand milking. The details of the research completed by Dr. Forbes is available at www.CoPulsation.com/mastitis_conference. Dr. Forbes obtained milk samples through two means. One was by

hand milking the teat and collecting milk extracted from the teat canal as it exited the teat. The second method was to extract milk directly from the teat sinus using a sterile syringe. Milk extracted directly from the teat sinus was shown to be free of bacteria while milk extracted through the teat canal was infected with bacteria. Non-motile bacteria can remain in the teat canal for many weeks without ever causing an infection if the teat end is not pinched by the liner of a conventional milking machine. Documented research in the Journal of Dairy Science by Cornell University further supports and proves Dr. Forbes to be correct. Cornell completed a side-by-side study comparing the CoPulsation™ Milking System to a conventional system and proved that cows milked with a conventional system are 16 times more likely to have a new Staph aureus infection. The Cornell result is more significant considering the fact that the 30 cows selected for the study were selected from their herd to be “most likely to remain in the herd for the next year” and that all five cows with confirmed Staph aures cases were initially assigned to be milked with CoPulsation and none assigned to the conventional system which caused those infections. At the completion of the study there were approximately 16 new Staph aureus infections in cows milked with the conventional system and only one in the cows milked with CoPulsation™. This result was again repeated in another longer

term study on a small commercial herd with data provided by Cornell University. That data also demonstrated similar improvements in reductions of mastitis cases for environmental bacteria.

Snyder is the pioneer of rotationally-molded polyethylene ag tanks. For more than fifteen years, farmers and ag chemical dealers have been choosing Snyder for their liquid handling systems. We’ve designed, molded and sold more tanks for agricultural use than any other polyethylene tank manufacturer in North America.

Snyder rotationally molds tanks from ultra-high quality cross-linked polyolefin or tough, linear polyethylene resins for a stronger, longer lasting tank. When you’re seriously looking into ag tanks, you’ll see the obvious weight and maintenance advantages of polyethylene and the advantages of Snyder’s rotational molding process.

Tell your story when you enter the Conservation Legacy Awards U.S. soybean farmers are invited to tell the story of conservation on their farms by entering the 2012-2013 Conservation Legacy Awards. Winning entries will help tell the story to the public about how soybean farmers are committed to protecting the soil, water and air through outstanding environmental and conservation practices while continuing to farm profitably. The 2012-2013 Conservation Legacy

Awards program is sponsored by the American Soybean Association (ASA), BASF, Monsanto, United Soybean Board and Corn & Soybean Digest magazine. Conservation Legacy Award winners from three regions (Midwest, Northeast and South) will each receive an expense-paid trip for two to the 2013 Commodity Classic convention and trade show, Feb. 28–March 2 in

Improve Your Profits

Mastitis, problem cows and slow milking all rob you of time and profits. Consider the following results noted by a recent customer in the Netherlands: • Clear improvement in teat end condition • Cows are clearly more at ease • Teats are softer and healthier • Milking is faster (15 minutes on 2 hours) • No new mastitis incidents

Kissimmee, FL. Regional winners will also be showcased in video features focusing on their winning conservation practices. In addition, the regional winners will be featured in a special insert in Corn & Soybean Digest magazine. One National Conservation Legacy Award winner will be chosen from the three regional winners and announced at the ASA Awards Banquet held during Commodity Classic.

All U.S. soybean farmers are eligible to enter. Applications must be submitted online by Aug. 6. Applications will be judged in five areas: soil management, water management, input management, farmstead protection, and conservation and environmental management. To learn more about the Conservation Legacy Awards program and to access the online application visit www.soygrowers.com/clap.

Mastitis from A10 cleaning teats with dips and bathing udders with chemical laden sprays not only fail to solve the mastitis problem but they also fail to address the obvious issues of swollen teats, damaged canals, uneven udders and kicking cows. The end result of those approaches is contaminated milk and ultimately culled cows that should have many more useful lactations. USDA data shows that the replacement rate has risen dramatically in the U.S. in the past 50 years. The true solution to solving the mas-

titis problem is one that addresses the root cause of the problem which is the damage caused by the milking machine. The teat is a complex structure of tissue that is sensitive to vacuum and liner pinch. It must be provided a proper rest action every time the liner closes. This rest must be in the form of a gentle compressive massage that allows for circulation to be re-established and must be of sufficient duration. This is accomplished with a very short C phase pulsation action and a pulsation rate of 45 pulses per minute.

Isn't it time you considered replacing your grandfather's pulsation technology with a state of the art pulsation actually designed to milk a cow in a humane manner most like the natural suckling action of a calf? See us at NRM in Netherlands and Eurotier in Hannover, Germany

A View from Hickory Heights by Ann Swanson Small vs. large When I first arrived at the farm they were making all small bales of hay. The mower cut swaths that were dried by the sun before they were removed from the field. The mower that I speak of here was just a long blade filled with knives that cut down the hay. Grandpa kept the knives sharp. Grandpa also mowed the hay in those days with his C tractor. The next step in the process was the raking. You could hear the click of the tines as the hay was scooped from the ground and rolled into a swath ready for the baler. Small bales were tied by the automatic tier then moved up a shoot for removal by one of the men. The bale was then stacked very carefully onto the wagon. One of the hay fields was on top of the hill. It was always a concern to get the thing back down when it was loaded. Haying evolved through

the years. A haybine was purchased and the old mower was retired. The haybine cut the hay closer to the ground yielding a bigger crop. The haybine worked off of the power take-off. The men also bought a baler that kicked the bales into the wagon. Sides needed to be built on the wagons to catch the hay. If a bale was ready to come out as you turned a corner it was apt to end up in the field. At times the baler kicked the bales so hard they went over the top of the wagon. Balers were touchy things. The needles had to move just right to tie each bale in two places. If a needle got bent or moved in some manner the apparatus would not tie and you had loose hay. That meant that you had to whistle for the driver to stop while you tended to the knotter. If you went through a woodchuck hole it could make everything topsy-turvy. My hus-

band was an expert at fixing things. He could pinpoint the problem in just a little while and get it going again as long as nothing broke. If the needle broke it meant a trip back to the barn to get a replacement. Our dog, Duchess, a white German Shepard, went to the field on nearly every trip. When she was not following the wagon, she was hunting woodchucks. Farm dogs have a wonderful life. There is so much activity, so many things for them to be part of. She took her role of rounding up the cows seriously. She did not hurt them, but she made sure they kept moving whenever they were supposed to. Our children worked alongside the men in the hayfield as soon as they were strong enough. Usually they were on the unloading crew or the mowing away crew. It was dusty hot work, but they did not seem to mind it. Since they helped prepare the feed for winter, they were allowed to pick out calves to raise. It was the cows they raised that paid for part of their college education. As they sold their livestock they had mon-

ey for books and tuition. The farm is now run by my son and his family. They now have someone custom bale their hay. A few new pieces of equipment had to be purchased to handle the newer larger round bales. There are pluses and minuses. The big baler does not take as much manpower to operate. The bales are harder to move though, and more difficult to spread out. A new piece of equipment solved that problem. Nothing stays the same and that is fine. The old ways worked, but some of the new ways make things easier. One has to create a balance between machinery and manpower. Farm machinery is costly. Buying a new machine is a major investment and should be treated as such. The motto is “Buy only what makes your life easier and is cost effective.” Ann Swanson writes from her home in Russell, PA.

Rough road ahead for Highway Bill by Kent Bacus, NCBA Associate Director of Legislative Affairs In November 2011, I wrote a somewhat optimistic article about the Highway Bill and the positive momentum it was gaining in both the US House and Senate. For the first time in several years it seemed as if meaningful transportation reform was within reach — an opportunity to lift unnecessary and burdensome transportation rules from farm and ranch operations. Unfortunately, six months have passed and all we have witnessed are extensions of current transportation law and continued discussions between House and Senate negotiators. The question remains if Congress will be able to overcome what seem to be insurmountable differences and manage to secure enough votes to pass the bill in both houses and still manage to secure President Obama’s signature at the end of the day. The Capitol Hill spin, both positive and negative, causes even the most seasoned D.C.-insiders to hedge their bets on how House and Senate leaders will manage their evergrowing to-do list. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who is leading Senate negotiators, suggests that negotiations will conclude with a successful Highway Bill before the end of June, and that the main reason for the holdup is stubborn House Repub-

licans. On the other side of the Hill, House Republicans suggest that Senate negotiators are to blame for not working with them on important provisions like the Keystone Pipeline. Regardless of who you believe, only one truth remains, the current Highway Bill will expire at the end of June. If Congress fails to pass a Highway Bill, what should we expect? Without question, neither party can afford the political ramifications of being labeled a job killer by letting transportation law expire. That being said, it is highly probable that we will see another extension of the current Highway Bill. Before I speculate on the length of the Highway Bill extension, let us consider all of the other priorities on Congress’s to-do list that must be accomplished in the next few months. • Congress must find a way to fund the federal government. The fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. Prior to Oct. 1, Congress is supposed to set a budget for the federal government and appropriate funding to each section of the federal government within the budgetary guidelines. The Senate has not yet passed a budget, and both Houses still have numerous appropriations bills to pass prior to the Oct. 1 deadline. If Congress fails to pass the appropriations bills, they may very well

In addition to the striking photographs, a 12-minute video “A Dance Of Horses” produced Ms. Black, of pastured horses in motion and at rest, is on view throughout the exhibit. In order to expand upon the success and interest in the show, L yons brainstormed with Budnik, who agreed that it might be a great idea to have a gathering of horse-related educational groups, organizations, businesses, stables, equine enthusiasts and vendors available to the public in conjunction with “MANESCAPES”. She contacted the New York State Horse Council, who agreed to support and sponsor the event; and in just three weeks’ time, the idea came to fruition, as the venue was held at Re-

naissance Park, along the banks of the Willowemoc Creek in Livingston Manor, just steps away from Morgan Outdoors. A total of 12 groups participated, bringing their wares and enjoying the sunny afternoon. Members of the public who attended the Day of the Horse were delighted to receive gifts from some of the vendors — ranging from 10 percentoff coupons from a local tack store, to bags of horse treats. There was a variety of items for sale, including saddles old and new, bridles, blankets, boots and show clothing, tools and various other tack items, and even stuffed toy horses for the youngsters. Attendees were given the opportunity to join the New York State Horse Council as well as the Sullivan County Chapter, which is the New York State Horse Council’s newest chapter; and the 4-H Fet-

Are We Seeing A Silver Lining in the Dark Cloud? Issued June 15, 2012 The Agriculture Department, in its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE), again raised its 2012 milk production estimate, citing a slower decline in cow numbers. The 2013 production forecast was unchanged. Department “udder counters” now project 2012 output to hit 202.2 billion pounds, up 300 million pounds from last month’s estimate, and compares to 196.2 billion in 2011 and 192.8 billion in 2010. The 2013 estimate remained at 202.6 billion. Export forecasts were raised for 2012 and 2013 on expected strength in cheese and nonfat dry milk (NDM) sales. Im-

ports on a skim solids basis were reduced slightly on lower expected imports of several dairy products. The Class III price forecast was lowered as an anticipated weaker whey price more than offset the slightly higher forecast cheese price. Look for the 2012 Class III to average $15.75-$16.15 per hundredweight (cwt.), down from $15.80-$16.30 projected a month ago, and compares to the 2011 average of $18.37 and $14.41 in 2010. The expected 2013 average remained at $16.20-$17.20. The Class IV projection was lowered, based on a weaker NDM price. Dairy Profit Weekly (DPW) added that U.S. feed grain production, use and supplies, were largely unchanged in the

WASDE report. Corn used for ethanol production was raised 50 million bushels, but that was offset by a 50-million-bushel decline in expected exports. Projected corn ending stocks for 2011/12 were unchanged, as was the 2011/12 season average farm price of $5.95$6.25 per bushel. The 2012/13 price outlook was also unchanged, at $4.20-$5.00. U.S. soybean supply and use projections for 2012/13 included lower beginning and ending stocks and reduced use, but export projections were raised. After averaging $12.30 per bushel

in 2011/12, soybean prices are projected in a wide range for 2012/13, at $12.00-$14.00 per bushel. Soybean meal prices averaged $360 per ton in 2011/12, and are projected at $335-$365 in 2012/13.

HORSE TALES By Judy Van Put The importance of good pasture management ~ part 2 As mentioned in a previous article on the importance of good pastures for horses, having a good horse pasture for daily forage needs as well as turnout and exercise can determine whether or not one can afford to own and keep a horse, as well-managed horse pastures have the advantage of greatly reducing the cost of keeping a horse. And if you are fortunate enough to already have a horse pasture in place, it is important to practice good pasture management to ensure your horse is receiving all the benefits a good pasture can provide. Of course you’ll need to check your fencing on a regular basis. Not only do ‘good fences make good neighbors’ but your horse’s safety depends on your keeping them safely contained, especially if your pasture is situated anywhere near a road or highway. It’s also important to do a soil check to ensure the pasture is providing forage with adequate nutritional value. You can take soil samples yourself and bring them to your local Extension agency, or even call the office and have an agent come to do a pasture survey. You’ll want your soil pH to be in the range of about 6.2 to 6.5; and monitor the soil for phosphorus and potassium as well. Liming and fertilizing the pasture each year will greatly increase its productivity and nutrition. One of the most common problems horse owners have with their pastures is overgrazing. This can come as a result of pasturing too many horses in too small a space; a general rule of thumb is to plan on about two acres per adult horse. If your pasture is predominantly weedy or sparse, you’ll need to increase the size according to the number of horses. Too much traffic can result in grass that is grazed so short as to damage its root struc-

ture and regrowth; compacting the soil; grassy areas that are trampled and end up with bare spots and muddy areas; and overload of manure, which can result in parasite problems and lack of grazing area. If your pasture is thin, sparse and weedy you may need to re-seed. Check to be sure the pasture mixture you select is prepared especially for horses. Do not use lawn mixtures or those suited for cows and goats, as these will have very different requirements. Most seed is sold according to soil types and whether your pasture tends to be wet or dry. A sample of a good horse pasture mix for New York soils, both well-drained and poorlydrained follows: For Well-Drained Soils: Orchard Grass - 4 pounds Timothy - 4 pounds Improved Tall Fescue 2 pounds Kent Bluegrass - 4 pounds Smooth Bromegrass -

2 pounds Tall White Clover - 1 pounds Red Clover - 2 pounds Total per acre: 19 pounds For Poorly-Drained Soils: Orchard Grass - 2 pounds Timothy - 8 pounds Improved Tall Fescue 4 pounds Kent Bluegrass - 4 pounds Red Clover - 2 pounds Total per acre: 20 pounds Keep in mind that some common forages, such as Alsike Clover, are not suitable for horses. Other common but toxic plants include milkweed, buttercups, deadly nightshade, horse

nettle, water hemlock, deadly hemlock and curly dock. Regular removal of manure piles is also important for the health of the pasture as well as for your horses — manure piles will smother the grass below, and will prevent horses from grazing those areas. In addition, they will harbor parasites and become a haven for flies and funguses, all of which can pass diseases along to your horses. Remove manure piles or at the very least, break them up by dragging — you can use chains or even fencing. Even in a pasture that is of adequate size for your horse or horses, it is im-

portant to have separate areas fenced off for grazing in order to ‘rest’ the pasture and enable grazed area to regrow. Horses tend to be selective in

their choice of forage and will move from place to place to graze on their favorite grasses while leaving the weeds behind;

even a very large pasture can become weedy and overgrazed of the best grasses if not monitored or rested on a regular basis. The rule of thumb for grazing is to allow the pasture to be grazed no shorter than two to three inches, and then to let it rest until it regrows. Ideally, a pasture will be fenced into three distinct smaller grazing areas, and each area will be grazed for one week, then rested while the horses are moved into the second and then third area. The two-week rest each grazing area receives will enable the grass to re-

grow to a healthy height of about six to eight inches before being grazed again. Another pasture maintenance duty we perform all during the year involves removing rocks from the pasture. We live in the aptly-named “Town of Rockland” — for the amount of rock that is in the ground. It seems that each spring, and even during the grazing season after heavy rains, our fields will ‘grow’ more rocks which need to be removed — not only for safety’s sake, but to en-

courage that many more square inches of grass. Most importantly, when removing those rocks, be sure to fill in the holes promptly. Our old mare suffered a hugely swollen knee last summer from stepping in a hole during the night that had been neglected after removing a large rock with the tractor. Finally, check the pasture regularly for drainage problems. Especially around watering areas, you may have to ditch or trench the ground and add in

crushed gravel or culverts in order to prevent wet and soggy areas. Muddy spots in the pasture are breeding grounds for insects and mosquitoes, which can carry disease, as well as being slippery and causing injury from falling. By caring for your pastures on a regular basis, you will rest assured that your horse is receiving all the benefits of having good pasture for nutrition and exercise, as well as enjoying a greatly reduced cost in keeping your horse.

TRUCKS Rough from A14 pass a short term extension through December to prevent the government from shutting down right before Election Day. • Following the heated budget debate of last year, Congress will probably continue to focus efforts on budget sequestration which means major cuts to defense spending and domestic spending. Not a comfortable topic during election year, but a top priority nonetheless. • Congress must also pass a new Farm Bill prior to Oct. 1 or pass an extension of current Farm Bill law to avoid 1940’s farm laws from kicking in-a fate the agriculture industry desperately wants to avoid. • In order to avoid a credit downgrade, Congress may also have to consider increasing the debt ceiling beyond the current ceiling at $16.394 trillion. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has said he estimates that U.S. borrowing could hit the debt ceiling by the end of 2012. • As most of you recall, some of the major provi-

sions of the tax code will expire at the end of 2012. Most notably, the 2001 and 2003 income tax cuts, the current estate tax relief, capital gains rates, and many other key provisions will expire unless Congress acts. This is a lot to accomplish in a non-election year, much less in an election year when the entire U.S. House of Representatives, a third of the U.S. Senate, and the White House are up for a vote. Now take into perspective how long Congress will actually be in session. The House and Senate will be in session for a handful of weeks in June and July and will be adjourned for the entire month of August. Both houses will come back for a couple of weeks in September and then will probably be gone until after Election Day to take care of their political responsibilities. That leaves only a few weeks in November and December to take care of a long list of important items. Speaker of the House John Boehner stated recently that if House and Senate negotiators fail to

meet the June 30 deadline he will call for a six month extension of the Highway Bill. That means that Congress would have to either squeeze in the Highway Bill after Election Day or vote on another extension in December, pushing the Highway Bill into the next Congress. For months I have been looking forward to writing a positive follow up on the Highway Bill, highlighting the benefits for the beef industry and sharing in that breathe of relief that our ranching families have sought for so long. As frustrating as it may be, that day is still to come. I encourage you to put this all into perspective as you hear the prognosticators predictions on

what will and won’t happen in Congress. Will Rogers once said,

$1.5725, up a nickel, 49 1/2-cents below a year ago, and closer to a normal spread. Five cars of each traded hands on the week. The U.S. average AMSsurveyed block price hit $1.5518, up 3.6 cents. The barrels averaged $1.5308, up 3.1 cents. The cheese market price gyrations were creating more uncertainty, according to USDA’s Dairy Market News. The trade is digesting the latest news on production trends of various cheese varieties, domestic pricing changes, and international news. Cheese production

is steady to lower and along expected, seasonal levels. Cheddar cheese inventory levels are adequate to higher and available for trade needs. Mozzarella holdings are often above the slowing, seasonal demand. Discounted milk offerings in the Midwest are very limited. DMN reports current Oceania cheddar pricing as steady. First Quarter 2012 commercial Disappearance of American cheese totaled 1.1 billion pounds, up slightly from 2011. Disappearance of other cheese

totaled 1.67 billion pounds, up 2.5 percent from 2011. In total, disappearance was 2.77 billion pounds, up 2.6 percent or up 71.2 million pounds from the same period in 2011. Stewart Peterson’s Matt Mattke confirmed that cheese demand is strong in Tuesday’s DairyLine. He also pointed to good cheese exports in April and said the weekly cheese storage level hit a new low for 2012 the week of June 11, falling below 130 million pounds for the first time this year. He called it a “bit of an abnormal trend,” as the last three years stocks were rising at this time. Cash butter saw the sixth week of gain, skyrocketing 8 1/2 cents Friday to $1.54 per pound, up 12 1/4-cents on the week, but still 60 cents below a year ago. Seven cars were sold on the week. AMS butter averaged $1.3679, up a half-cent. USDA reports that churning across the country remains seasonally active. Cream supplies are sufficient to maintain near capacity or capacity schedules but the surplus volumes of recent weeks have declined. Class II operations, especially ice cream producers, are absorbing increasing volumes of cream. Domestic butter demand is good, stimulated by scattered retail features as low as 99 cents per pound and food service orders are steady at good levels. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.2225 per pound and Extra Grade at $1.1650, up 1 1/4 and 4 1/2-cents respectively. Six cars of Grade A traded hands. AMS powder

averaged $1.1022, up 0.7 cent, and dry whey averaged 50.32 cents, down 1.3 cents. USDA reports that milk output is declining in the East, leading to a tightening of supplies. Hotter temperatures are leading to declines in Florida and fewer loads are leaving the state to find processing. Midwest production is sporadic with some areas seeing an increase in output following better weather. Other areas are seeing declines and lower component tests. Milk output is mixed in the Southwest. Weather is the contributing factor. Production is being affected by low milk prices and high feed cost as producers seek best returns. Processing plants are running on heavy schedules but are backing off from seasonal highs. The Oceania milk production season is finished. New Zealand producers and handlers expect a strong 9 percent increase over the previous year while Australian handlers project a 4 percent gain. U.S. dairy exports remain in good shape, according to the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC). April exports were equivalent to 13.6 percent of U.S. milk solids production, the 25th straight month in which exports ran 12-15 percent of output. Exports were equivalent to 13.3 percent of U.S. milk solids production in 2011 and 12.8 percent in 2010. Meanwhile, imports as a percent of milk solids production were just 2.7 percent in April 2012, according to USDEC.

cows and plows by showing the diverse careers in agriculture. Agricultural careers represented included a veterinarian, landscaper, surveyor, food scientist, biologist, environmental engineer, lawyer, sheep farmer, dairy farmer, welder and a mechanic.

2012 4-H Teen Council Scholarship Recipients Submitted by Kandis Freer Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H Teen Council Scholarship is a very special award. The money is raised by 4H’ers to honor and support three of their own. There is an extensive application where applicants are expected to record experiences they have had in 4-H, accomplishments on local, county, state, and national levels, and how these experiences related to their personal development. This year I am extremely excited to announce the following very hardworking, dedicated individuals as our Teen Council Scholarship Recipients. Christian (Stanzione) Degener of Valley Falls,

Christian Degener

(Stanzione)

son of Kimberly and Mark Degener and Mark Stanzione is the $1,000 Teen Council Scholarship Recipient for 2012. Over the past 12 years Chris has been an active member of Rensselaer County 4-H and has dedicated himself to the Wild Things 4H Club, Teen Council, Teen Ambassadors, Teen Exchange, and the New York State Science Ambassador Team. He started out with projects in fiber arts, sheep, goat and foods and nutrition and now he is a teen leader that county staff often call on to help out with projects or events. You could always count on Chris to be a teen manager at the county snack bar, help with county dog classes, read during Ag Literacy Week, collect election results for the news channels, and attend 4-H Program Development Committee Meetings. He has been a representative at Capital Days the past two years; once as a New York State Science Ambassador and once as a county representative to talk with our state leaders about his experiences in 4-H and how it will help him as a young adult going off to college. Chris has also

taken on the responsibilities of being a Focus Assistant at Career Explorations and presenting a short workshop at State Teen Action Reps Retreat (STARR). He truly has been instrumental to Rensselaer County 4-H and will be sincerely missed as he goes off to Hudson Valley Community College this fall to further his education and begin studying Culinary Arts & Restaurant Management. Connor Hoyt, son of Pierce and Lisa Hoyt of Cropseyville has been an active member in Rensselaer County 4-H for 11 years. Connor is one of two who has received a $500 Teen Council Scholarship for

Connor Hoyt

2012. His career in 4-H with Forest Friends, Teen Council, Teen Ambassadors and involvement at Dyken Pond has truly molded him into a responsible citizen and advocate for the environment. Connor excels in GPS technology, archery and is very knowledgeable and well versed in natural resources. He uses this awareness to help younger 4-H members when he is evaluating their projects at Winter Fair and teaching county wide programs for 4-H as well as programs at Dyken Pond. Connor has also taken on many leadership roles on the local, county and state levels. On the local level he has served as his club’s president and treasurer; on the county level he has represented 4-H at Grafton Winter Fest, served as Teen Council treasurer, lead activities at Pre-Teen Fun Day and helped run the Schaghticoke Fair Snack Bar as a teen manager; and lastly, on the state level he served as a Focus Assistant for Career Explorations at Cornell University. Connor has truly grown over his 4-H career and we are confident that he

will continue to grow as he goes off to SUNY Cortland to study Business Economics with a concentration in the Environment. Marilyn Lamb, daughter of Terry and Christina Lamb of Buskirk has been an active member of Rensselaer County 4-H for the past 12 years. Throughout her career her primary focus has been Dairy Cattle. Marilyn is the other $500, 2012 Teen Council Scholarship Recipient. Over the years, Marilyn has developed a successful line of Holstein Cattle in her dairy production project that she exhibits both in the 4-H Dairy Show as well as the Open Class Dairy Show

Marilyn Lamb

at the Schaghticoke Fair. She has won several awards over the years and this past year she also exhibited at the New York State Fair and did an excellent job showing her animal and representing Rensselaer County 4-H. Marilyn has been very active in her county club as she has taken on every possible role including club educator, whose job is to mentor younger members. She has lead the Dairy Bowl Team as captain to the district competition for two years and will be concluding her year as the Rensselaer County Dairy Princess at the end of April. Marilyn has taken advantage of 4-H trips such as Career Explorations to Cornell University and the Ag Business Trip to SUNY Cobleskill. Through all these experiences, as well as growing up on a local dairy farm, Marilyn realizes the importance of educating consumers on where their food comes from. We are confident that Marilyn will continue to find new ways to educate the public as she attends SUNY Cobleskill in the fall to pursue a degree in Agricultural Business.


This is a relatively new procedure that began with the use of disk mowers. In the desire to maximize yield, farms cut as close as possible. We are now getting complaints that stands are not staying in, the grass is not yielding, and the nutritionist is trying to make milk from dirt (sort of like alchemy — turning lead to gold). Adding to the issue is the shift to wide

swath haylage in order to get the high energy forage, means the mergers have more trouble picking up the material. The problem is the mowers are minimum tilling the field instead of just mowing the crop. To many are set to scalp the ground and leave little or no stubble. Raising the cutter bar to leave a stubble will get the crop out of the soil and allow more air to move around

it for drying. What you leave is the least digestible part of the alfalfa. You are also leaving the high ash content of many forages. Each pound of ash directly reduces the milk producing ability of your forage. Raising the bar can also increase yields in grasses. In an excellent study by Dr. Ray Smith of the University of Kentucky,

they significantly increased the regrowth of the grasses by increasing the cutting height. Alfalfa should be cut at 2.5-3 inches while grasses should never be cut at less than 3.5 inches. This is often the reason intensively managed grass stands disappear. It was cut to short. Source: Advanced Ag Systems’ Crop Soil News, May 2012

Mielke from A23 In other export news; Cooperatives Working Together accepted 13 requests for export assistance in its latest round, to sell a total of 3.331 million pounds of cheese plus 1.512 million pounds of butter to customers in Asia, Central America and the Middle East. The product will be delivered through December 2012. California’s July Class I milk price is $17.60 per cwt. for the North and $17.87 for the south. Both are up 79 cents from June but $4.78 below July 2011. The northern Class I 2012 average now stands at $17.79, down from $19.85 a year ago. The southern average, at $18.06, is down from $20.12 a year ago. The July Federal order Class I base price will be announced by the USDA June 20. Looking “back to the

futures;” after factoring in the announced Federal order Class III milk prices and the remaining futures, the average Class III milk price for the first six months of 2012 stood at $15.70 on May 11 and $15.89 on June 8. The last half of 2012 was averaging $15.44 on May 11, $15.69 on May 18, $16.13 on May 25, $15.96 on June 1, $16.53 on June 8, and was trading around $16.50 late morning June 15. In dairy politics; National Milk and the International Dairy Foods Association announced their opposition to a Senate proposal that would allow the interstate sales of raw milk. They charged in a letter to lawmakers that doing so would “greatly enhance the chances that people will become sick because of increased consump-

tion of unpasteurized milk.” NMPF’s Jerry Kozak said. “Pasteurization is one of the greatest public health tools. Meanwhile; National Milk and the USDEC applauded introduction this week of legislation to extend Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) to Russia. The legislation enables U.S. companies to expand exports to Russia when it joins the World Trade Organization (WTO) this year. Russia is expected to complete the necessary administrative and regulatory changes and thereafter to actively join the WTO this August. Those commitments include provisions relating to agricultural trade, which NMPF and USDEC believe will yield significant improvements in tariff levels as well as in how Russia deals with various regulatory requirements for imported

dairy products. In order to ensure that U.S. companies will be able to take full advantage of those improved policies, Congress must pass PNTR and graduate Russia from the Trade Act of 1974’s JacksonVanik amendment. “U.S. dairy exports have been blocked from the Russian market for almost two years due to ongoing dairy certificate negotiations,” said Tom Suber, president of USDEC. “Congressional passage of PNTR with Russia and repeal of the Jackson-Vanik amendment with respect to Russia is necessary to ensure that we are able to fully avail ourselves of the strong WTO accession package negotiated by the United States with respect to agricultural trade with Russia.” And in the “Farm Bill war,” a report by Informa Economics Incorporated commissioned by IDFA, shows that increased dairy exports have been driving over two-thirds of the growth in the U.S. dairy industry and that the available studies of the proposed supply management program in the

Farm Bill predict it will cause a reduction in exports, even with the program’s suspension clause. The report finds that the U.S. dairy industry has moved from a “mostly inward-looking, closed system to a market driven largely by exports and international prices.” It warned that the “frequency and severity of price spikes resulting from supply control programs could reduce long-term competitiveness” and require lower U.S. prices to continue to increase U.S. milk production. The report reviews the results of five economic analyses of the proposed dairy supply management program and the studies have found that the government program would limit milk supply 7.5 to 46.2 percent of the time. USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) has released revised cost of production data. USDA reevaluated the data published on May 1 after Daily Dairy Report (DDR) analyst, Sarina Sharp, questioned the data’s validity. USDA says the error occurred when ERS

switched to state level indices of feed costs in 2011, which varied from regional feed cost indices used in prior years. The amended report reduced 2011 feed costs relative to the May 1 report for all states by an average of $1.86 per cwt., and lowered feed costs for every state surveyed except Missouri, the DDR reported. The revised data shows California feed costs at $13.11 per cwt., compared to $17.73, reported previously, a $4.62 per cwt. or 26 percent decline. Oregon feed costs were revised even further, from $20.88 per cwt. to $14.82 per cwt., a drop of 29 percent from unjustifiable levels. Since feed costs were the only costs revised, the correction went directly to the bottom line and resulted in better profitability in 2011 than in 2010 for most states. However, even the revised report indicates that California dairy producers lost 21 cents per cwt. and 37 cents per cwt. in 2010 and 2011, respectively after allocating overhead. While the revisions put California margin estimates on better footing, they still lag private industry data which show California producers were profitable in both 2010 and 2011 and that profits were better in 2011 than 2010. The dairy industry has not closely followed ERS cost of product data, the DDR reported, “However, it is in the industry’s best interest to do so, as Dr. McBride stated that these numbers are used as guidelines in shaping dairy policy.” You can hear DDR analyst, Sarina Sharp talk about it at www.dailydairyreport.com.

Donna’s Day: creative family fun by Donna Erickson Plum Buckle is easy, fresh summer recipe Bubbling sweet plums in a butter cake, often referred to as a buckle, is a tasty dessert treat to serve all summer long. It’s my go-to summer recipe not only because it uses one of my favorite seasonal fruits, the luscious and beautiful plum, but it’s also a piece of cake to make! Look for ripe plums with your family at a roadside stand or at your local grocery store. While choosing the fruit, show your kids how to gently squeeze each one to find ripe choices. The fruit should give slightly when lightly pressed between your fingers. Young kids will have fun counting up at least five for this recipe, or let them weigh 1 1/2 pounds’ worth. If there are several varieties to choose from, ask if you can taste samples. When you return home, wash the fruit and gather all the ingredients. While you wait for the butter to come to room temperature, your school-age child may grate the lemon peel, and another may grease and flour the pan while you slice the plums. Now everything will be ready to go together in a snap.

Fresh and easy plum buckle

Cake: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup (1/2 pound) butter, at room temperature 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel 1/3 cup milk 4 cups (about 1 1/2 pounds) unpeeled ripe plums,

pitted and sliced 1/4 inch thick Topping: 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1. Preheat oven to 325°F. 2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a bowl. Set aside. 3. Beat the butter and 1 cup sugar on high speed until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in grated lemon peel. 4. Stir half the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add milk, and gently stir in remaining flour mixture just until the dry ingredients are moistened and the batter is smooth. Spoon into a buttered and floured 8inch-square baking pan. Let kids arrange plum slices, slightly overlapping them in rows or concentric circles over the batter. Sprinkle topping over slices. 5. Bake 45 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature. Top with a flag on each piece for the Fourth of July,

or with a candle or trinket for a summer birthday. Serves 10. NOTE: Firm, ripe apricots can be substituted for plums. (c) 2012 Donna Erickson Distributed by King Features Synd.

Red, white and blueberry whoopie pies (NAPSA) — When it’s time to celebrate, what’s more fun than whoopie pies: Blueberry whoopie pies! Fresh delicious blueberries nestled in fluffy marshmallow crème, layered between mini-size cake rounds, make a supertasty snack or dessert. This controlled-portion treat has a fat-free filling and the great benefits of nature’s little blue dynamos. What’s more, making these little gems yourself is easier than you might think when you start with a red velvet cake mix. Let the children help spread the crème on the cakes and top it off with plenty of fresh blueberries before sandwiching them all together.

Red, White And Blueberry Whoopie Pies - Mini Size 1 red velvet cake mix (18.25 ounces) 1/4 cup flour 1/2 cup water 1/3 cup vegetable oil 3 large eggs 1 1/2 cups marshmallow crème from a jar 1 cup fresh blueberries Heat oven to 350° F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, flour, water, oil and eggs. With an electric mixer, beat at medium speed until smooth, 23 minutes. Scoop the batter by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart, to make 24 small cakes. Bake until puffed, 8-10 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes on the baking sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. With a small spatula or knife, spread 1 1/2 teaspoons marshmallow crème onto the flat side of each cookie. Divide blueberries onto 12 of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies to make sandwiches. Serve immediately or store chilled in an airtight container, layered between sheets of waxed paper. Yield: 12 whoopie pies Per portion: 302 calories, 47 g carbohydrate, 12 g total fat, 3 g saturated fat For further facts about blueberries and loads of great recipes, go to www.littlebluedynamos.com.

Farm, rural and environmental groups call for crop insurance subsidy limits Recently, the Center for Rural Affairs joined four other farm, rural and environmental organizations in signing and sending a letter to every U.S. Senator urging them to place limits on the federal crop insurance premium subsidies granted to individual farmers, establish income limits for subsidy recipients and require that recipients be actively engaged in farming. “We are a diverse group of organizations united by the belief that responsible farm policy should direct subsidies for crop insurance premiums to farmers who need it,” said Chuck Hassebrook of the Center for Rural Affairs. “And Congress should cap those premium subsidies at levels that do not make it easier for the nation’s largest farms to drive out small, mid-sized and beginning farmers.” To view or download a full copy of the letter go to: http://files.cfra.org/pdf/c rop-insurance-letter.pdf According to Hassebrook, federal farm spending is dramatically shifting from farm payments to subsidies for crop insurance, with the federal government now paying an average of 60 percent of premiums. Crop insurance expenditures are more than double traditional farm programs under the proposed new farm bill, with no subsidy limit and no eligibility requirements. “The result will be an increase in the already excessive subsidies to the nation’s largest farms,” Hassebrook explained. “In a time when federal dollars are scarce we are sending precious government resources to large and highly profitable agribusinesses while cutting food assistance to needy children and environmental protections for soil, water, and wildlife,” said Craig Cox, senior vice president of agriculture and natural resources at Environmental Working Group. “It is simply irresponsible to send unlimited subsidies to farm

businesses that can easily afford to pay more of the cost for their crop insurance — 26 mega farms received over a million dollars apiece per year in crop insurance subsidies in 2011.” The joint letter also explains that capping indi-

vidual premium subsidies and setting income limits will not deny farmers access to needed risk protection. And it is important to note that such a policy would not deny or cap insurance payments (indemnities) to farms facing losses.

Rather, it would limit subsidies on the front end for payment of premiums. These subsidies are highest in the best of times because it costs more to insure a crop at market value when its price is high. “Federal crop insur-

ance is a valuable tool for producers — one which we support. Farmers need to be able to manage risks of failed crops and low prices to maintain their farms from year to year,” said Chuck Hassebrook of the Center for Rural Af-

fairs. “But the emergence of crop insurance as the primary element of farm policy requires that it be subject to payment limitations and eligibility requirements, just like traditional farm programs.”
