Why farmers farm by Julia Hudyncia Dairy farmers work hard every day to bring you fresh, great tasting, wholesome dairy products. Ninertyseven percent of all dairy farms are family-owned and are active members of their communities. Farm families take pride in feeding our world and maintaining natural resources; that means preserving land where they live and work, protecting the air and water they share with neighbors, and providing the best care for their cows-the lifeblood of their business. Why do people love to be farmers? Let me say farming is a way of life; farming is not an 8-5 job. Farmers work before sun up to long after sundown. Farmers have a special place in their hearts for animals; they cherish their time with them. Both my parents realize the importance of the dairy industry in our families. My parents’ passion for the dairy industry, and the Holstein cow in particular, was the ignition spark behind the involvement of all their children with our dairy projects. From the earliest times I can remember, I have been helping out in the everyday operation of the farm. I am very involved in our home farm and enjoy all aspects of the daily operation. Since a very young age, the Registered Holsteins I have grown to own, raise, and love have influenced my involvement in the Holstein Association, community, and other dairy groups and organizations. On my farm we pride ourselves in taking care of our animals and land. When your land can work as one with your animals, a farmer sets itself up for success. We use pasture as much as possible because we feel that the outdoors and pasture helps the overall health of the cow. Pasture enables the cows to strengthen their legs and have access to exercise. When the weather outside becomes too warm, the cows will come into the barn and relax under our fans. When it’s too cold, the cows also have the shelter of the barn to keep them warmer. Farmers utilize all land resources

by Sally Colby Trent Loos talks about ag with just about everyone he encounters, and wants every farmer and rancher to do the same. “What we’re talking about is getting everyone in the food business, from food producer to food consumer, in the right frame of mind,” he said. “Not to be defensive and reactionary, but to seek opportunities and to be good listeners.” Loos is a sixth-generation United States farmer with a strong passion for ag. After realizing that celebrities and vegan zealots had more voice and influence than real farmers and ranchers, Loos began to speak on behalf of those who dedicate their lives to producing food. Loos says producers spend too much time talking about what we need to do, then go back to the day-to-day grind without following through. He encourages people to reach beyond their familiar and comfortable circle of friends who are in ag and talk with those who aren’t. “We are amazing at sitting in a room and generating ideas that we should be working on,” he said. “But how many have had a confrontational conversation in the past two weeks?” With social media, anything posted online becomes immediately accessible throughout most of the world. Everything farmers and ranchers do as part of raising livestock is fair game for the public. “The world we live in today is transparent,” said Loos, “and that’s what we have to get a handle on and figure out how to seize that as an opportunity rather than argue about it. If there’s something going on behind that door that we don’t want people to see, we’re nailed, because they’re going to find out. If there’s something we’re doing behind closed doors that we don’t think people should see, then we should not do it.” Loos referenced a vegetarian conference in which the message was ‘it’s time to move to a planet-healthy diet —

relieve the planet of its burden and eat a plant-based diet.’ “We’ve done a great job telling the story of animal welfare, but where we’re struggling is explaining the benefit to the planet,” he said. “Animals improve the planet and improve human health. 85 percent of the land mass in the United States is not suitable for growing crops, but it grows cellulose material and a ruminant animal can take cellulose material and convert it to food, fiber, pharmaceuticals and fuel.” Loos noted that numerous studies have proven that cows’ grazing improves greenhouse gasses, and that producers need to use these studies to prove points. “We need to let everybody know that cows’ grazing improves the utilization of greenhouse gasses.” In regard to how animal rights activists compare the way in which the European Union is changing the way livestock are raised and want the the United States to impose similar regulations, Loos’s response is, “yes, the E.U. is doing it — that’s why they’re importing 60 percent of the food they consume, and they’re on a path of starvation because they have exported all food production. Why do we want to be like them when it comes to antibiotics, animal housing and GM crops? We have to grab hold of these things and get on top of them now.” Consumers often bring up the issue of fat in animal protein, and blame farmers for producing unhealthy food. Loos says the reason people like wellmarbled beef is because marbling is fat, and milk tastes good because of fat. He encourages producers to use facts about animal products in a positive manner. “We have a great story to tell with well-marbled beef,” he said. “We tend to use the term ‘lean’ because we think that’s what the consumer wants. Marbling is the same exact heart-healthy fat that comes from olive oil.” Loos believes that trying to placate every consumer demand will put

farmers out of business. “What they (consumers) want is putting us out of business. They’ve done that in the E.U., and now the E.U. relies on other countries to produce their food. We need to explain that we put a chicken in a cage because it’s the best way to protect that chicken from other chickens, from mountain lions and coyotes. It’s the best way to protect the chicken from Mother Nature.” He also says we should think of animal welfare in terms of whether or not we’re minimizing stress, and examine whether we’re reducing or contributing the stress. Loos referenced the Pennsylvania Farm Show’s groundbreaking exhibit ‘Opening the Doors.’ The exhibit included chickens in cages, veal calves in modern veal calf pens, sows in crates, nursery pigs, finishing pigs and a dairy cow. He noted that the most common concern voiced in the four days he was there was what was hanging on the beef pen: a samples of feed-

stuffs commonly used to finish cattle. “Ground alfalfa, soybean meal, Hershey byproducts and Frito-Lay byproducts. The only concern I heard was, ‘you’re feeding cattle candy bars and chips?” Loos says that’s an ‘ah-ha moment,’ because we’ve been taught by today’s medical community and dieticians to demonize food and not understand nutrition. “Cattle are recyclers — all animals are recyclers — we have to have the right balance of carbohydrates in a ration to match the protein in the soybean meal.” Loos believes that every farmer should have a conversation with a non-ag person at least every week. “You don’t need to go find them,” he said. “You just need to be a good listener. If you hear people misspeak, you can say, ‘no, ma’am, actually that’s not right. Here’s what I do.’ What we have been doing is saying ‘those stupid people don’t get it,’ and walk off. And we just can’t do that any more.”

Defining right to farm by Tamara Scully New Jersey long ago adopted Right to Farm legislation, granting farmers protection against nuisance complaints from neighbors, or attempts at municipalities to curtail agricultural activities. However, this protection is not carte blanche. In order to be protected, farms must meet the legal definition of a commercial farm, operate in a zone where agriculture is a permitted activity — or be grandfathered in — and adhere to all municipal codes unless there is a valid, agricultural reason not to do so. Additionally, the activity or issue being challenged must be covered under applicable Agricultural Management Practices regulations, which are developed by the State Agricultural Development Committee. Activities not covered by an AMP are not eligible for RTF protection. The SADC is able to revise existing AMPs, and to create new AMPs as the need arises. Only farmers who are in com-

pliance with applicable AMPs can receive Right to Farm protection. “Right to Farm does not exist unless it is granted by the CADB,” Susan Payne, Executive Director of the SADC said to an audience of Sussex County farmers and Extension personnel, at the May meeting of the Sussex County Agricultural Development Board. Right to farm cases When there is a RTF complaint against a farmer, the County Agricultural Development Board has primary jurisdiction. New Jersey’s Appellate and Supreme Courts have both determined that the CADBs must hear RTF cases, not the municipal court system. Should the CADB’s decision be appealed, the case is then considered by the SADC, Payne said. Aside from a complainant opening a Right to Farm case, a farmer can proactively ask their CADB for a site-specific AMP for their farm. This is particularly useful if the farmer is planning to build a market, change operations,

or has heard rumors of discontent in the community. Using either route will result in a determination of activities and practices which are granted to the farm under RTF legislation. Non-agricultural activities cannot be granted RTF protection, and if a health or safety concern exists, RTF does not apply, Payne emphasized. One complicated situation is municipal site plan reviews, Payne said. A farmer can go before a municipality for review, and take any unresolved issues to the CADB, or can opt to go directly to the CADB. The CADB determines which elements of the site plan are agricultural in nature and within its scope of expertise and jurisdiction, leaving the municipality to decide any non-agricultural issues. Regulations such as storm water management, wetlands issues and other land use issues which are covered under State or Federal Law cannot be overruled by RTF legislation.

However, if a town imposes more stringent regulations, which would impede legitimate agricultural activity, those additional requirements may be exempted under RTF. New Direct Marketing AMPs Payne has been attending CADB meetings around the state, introducing a newly released AMP. The AMP for On Farm Direct Marketing (OFDM) is meant to clarify and to set consistent standards statewide, as they pertain to on-farm marketing and associated, allowable activities and events. These AMPs have been developed by the SADC after several years of work. Currently, New Jersey farms are increasingly becoming agri-entertainment venues, hosting special events, festivals and other activities which are farm-based, not product-based. The OFDM AMPs outline the scope of activities and events which are considered ancillary to on-farm direct marketing, and therefore acceptable on farms with

Pesticides as a potential danger by Stephen Wagner Though retired, Penn State Extension Specialist Tom McCarty is still the go-to guy for solving water problems involving pesticides and other potentially dangerous potables. A case in point, chronicled by a Penn State magazine, showed how McCarty successfully solved the plight of a woman who was being plagued by an unknown malady. This Harrisburg, PA, woman had been experiencing nausea, diarrhea and skin rashes for three years. No one could determine what was causing her ailment; best guesses indicated some sort of possible allergy. Consequently the remedy, in light of that non-professional diagnosis, was to try to purge the house of possible toxins by getting rid of plastics, clothing made with synthetic fabrics, chemical cleaners, and furniture with formaldehyde. Air filters had even been added to the house but none of

those steps were of any avail. It took the victim’s dogs getting sick to make her wonder about the property’s water supply. As an alternative, she started using bottled water, a measure that seemed to afford a measure of relief. When the water was tested, the lab told her that the water had an ecoli count 16 times greater than what the Environmental Protection Agency considered unsafe. Furthermore, a total coliform count registered more than 200 times EPA standards. From there, Dottie Johns, the victim, was at odds about where to turn. An online web search directed her to the PSU extension website about drinking water, and Johns phoned Tom McCarty. McCarty met with her and explained exactly what the test results were saying. As a result, he recommended installation of a monitoring device that employs ultra-violet radiation to kill bacteria at the primary water line before it

travels to the rest of the dwelling’s plumbing. The plumbing was also flushed with a bottle of chlorine to destroy any lingering bacteria. McCarty was the kickoff speaker at a pesticide forum held in Lancaster at the beginning of March. He discussed water quality and pesticide issues. The sessions, which ran all day, were primarily for those interested in pesticide certifications and the subjects under discussion offered credits. Related topics included Transporting Chemicals, and Spill Response and Clean Up. “We get good at measuring stuff,” said McCarty. “We used to pride ourselves with being able to measure parts per million. Then, parts per billion. Now, parts per trillion. If you keep going on down, you are liable to detect things that you weren’t able to detect earlier. The fact that we can find stuff isn’t necessarily a bad thing.” Then McCarty got into

the nitty-gritty of the topic by asking for a show of hands by anyone who had ever spilled anything. “Let’s make it more interesting,” he said. “How far from your well is it safe to spill a jug of herbicide?” An allinclusive answer can be found at Penn State’s Ag Communications and Marketing offices. Four years ago, Winand Hock, professor emeritus of Plant Pathology, and Eric Lorenz, senior extension associate, Pesticide Education Program, authored a paper titled ‘How to Handle Chemical Spills.’ It advocates that, “The suggested guidelines in the event of a hazardous chemical spill are included under the ‘Three C’ program: Control the spill, Contain the spill, and Clean up the spill.” “Act quickly,” the communiqué says when talking about Spill Control. “The sooner the spill is controlled the less damage it can cause. Immediate steps should be taken to control the flow of the material being spilled, regardless of the source. If a one-gallon can on a storage shelf has rusted through and is leaking, a sprayer has tipped over, or a hazardous chemical is leaking from a damaged tank truck, do everything possible to stop the leak or spill at once…However, stopping larger leaks or spills may not be so simple. If the spill is large or dangerous, have someone get help. Do not leave the site unattended. “…At the same time the leak is being controlled,” the advisory continues, “contain the spilled material in as small an area as possible and keep it from spreading. In some situations, a shovel or power equipment may be needed to construct a dam. Liquid spills can be further contained by spreading absorbent materials such as fine sand, ver-

miculite, clay, or pet litter over the entire spill. However, a word of caution is needed here. Avoid using sawdust or sweeping compounds if the material is a strong oxidizer (check the label or MSDS) because such a combination presents a possible fire hazard. “…The only effective way to decontaminate soil saturated with a hazardous chemical is to remove the top 2 to 3 inches of soil. This contaminated soil must be disposed of at a proper disposal site. The decontaminated area should be covered with at least 2 inches of lime and then topped with fresh topsoil.” McCarty then asked a hypothetical question: “Isn’t contamination merely theoretical? We don’t really have to worry about it?” By that he means that if you believe certain theories,

such as soil being low porosity and unable to contain outlandish chemical components, spills are likely to be minimal dangers. “Small pores,” in other words, “don’t necessarily have a lot of materials in them, and it holds them well, and it has all summer to decay. So if you have something with a reasonable half life, pesticides won’t be transported through or into ground water. You could say pesticides never move through the soil. We didn’t see that,” said McCarty. “We did see that there were some conditions where they may move in small quantities.” Returning to his original question about a herbicide spill near a well, McCarty then asked “Hasn’t anybody ever tested the groundwater to find if herbicides are present?” Stay tuned!

by Steven E. Smith Specialized computer systems, advanced controllers, cameras and wireless networks are modern technologies that connect the agricultural manager of today to their 24 hour- 7 day per week workplace. While there are many great innovations to incorporate on a farm, the task of designing, installing and maintaining these systems can seem daunting to many who specialize in animal husbandry or crop production. As the saying goes, necessity breeds innovation. In agriculture, it is in those times that concepts for improvements to daily tasks, data collection, and other activities undergo change. Previous generations of farmers would envy the possibilities of cameras that overlook the calving pen, wireless internet networks that connect elements of the farmstead to new levels of automation and customized information technology systems specifically designed for remote access to the onfarm computer records. Through do it yourself endeavors or by using skilled specialists with these technologies, farms throughout the northeast are realizing these methods of improved management. In an interview with Marcel Poirier, owner of Farm Work Services, Poirier explained that farms can install specialized computer systems that marry the worlds of computers and agriculture. “There are opportunities to incorporate farm computer services to monitor and control alley scrapes, parlors systems and just about anything else that takes place on a dairy farm,” stated Poirier. Computers and other technology applications when integrated into agricultural setting require customization in order to adapt the standard equipment into the farmstead environment. “For most on farm computer needs, it is unlikely that a standard computer

Defining right

can be pulled off the shelf and installed. Since the inception of Afi Milk and other daily milk yield collections systems, those of us in the technology support field have had to make on farm modifications to enable all the programs to properly interact.” What should farms be considering today? Another aspect to consider as farm businesses become more and more computer dependent is the maintenance of data as well as equipment. “Good data backup plan systems will always have a place.” Since the farm is not exactly the most ideal environment for these more delicate devices, the use of on-farm servers and maintenance of units within a farm network is in keeping with the old adage that advises never to be cheap about maintenance unless one doesn’t mind paying the expenses that result from repair. Poirier is among a group of pioneers in the technology fields of the dairy industry. “Computer technologies and system integration will likely become an increasingly important command center for every dairy farmer or operation manager. For Poirier, the development and implementation of new systems based on his and his customer’s brainstorming for ways to improve an area of the dairy farm. “Right now, I am working with a system engaging the feed truck’s power take off and high idle from the feed loader. I use technologies such as Programmable Logic Controller, ladder Logic Programming and Wireless RF remotes to control feed augers from the cab of feed trucks among other things. In another instance, I set the customer’s wireless network up over a three mile distant so that the farm is able to project data from one computer system to another. We just had to get creative and use a few silos and buildings to accomplish the task.”

Poirier commented on the importance of being ready to assist customers when systems malfunction. “As dairies have grown to today’s larger operations that rely on efficiencies through the use of systems, I have made it a point to make myself available to get my customer’s back online as soon as possible.” Late one afternoon, Poirier had received a cell phone text informing him that a customer had a business computer failure on the eve they were scheduled to process payroll. Poirier made certain that he made the necessary repairs that evening that made payroll processing possible. Poirier brings a farm boy mindset to the job. “If you are going to work with the dairy industry, you better be available seven days week.” “For me, every day is a little something different and I love it.” Like most successful men in a demanding job, Marcel pointed out how important the support and understanding of his fantastic wife Laurie has been to allow him to continue to serve the dairy industry as an innovator of computer and systems technologies. They are already linking the business managers with full records access from wherever. Poirier recently assisted a customer to link all their systems including the time clock and computer farm records systems so that the customer could advise the farm and process payroll all while he was out of the country. These opportunities to harness technologies to use computer systems, actuators, cameras and wireless networks will better enable Poirier’s customers to meet the everincreasing demands on the agricultural industry. What will the future bring? For those people who don’t consider themselves very tech savvy, today’s technological advancements might

seem the best possible solution but Poirier reflects on his career and can envision more opportunities and new systems. “As a milk tester, I got my start with computers as a DHI milk tester. Soon computer systems became commonplace at dairies, so I then got experience with Dairy Comp 305, Feedwatch and Parlor Watch. For me, embracing technology led to becoming a NY DHI’s Afi Milk installer. For tomorrow, it is exciting to think where we might be after looking back on the advancements of the last three decades alone.” With the help of technology specialists such as Marcel Poirier of Farm Work Services, the creativity and ingenuity common to the American farmer will be realized. Farm Work Services can be contacted at 607-591-3284 or by e-mail at barnlad@gmail.com.

The AMP allows up to 49 percent of products sold at a retail farm market may be complementary or supplementary to the farm’s direct agricultural output. This can be measured by gross sales receipts, or by percentage of the sales area devoted to products not of the farm’s output. The sales area includes both indoor and outdoor, covered and uncovered, display areas used primarily for the marketing and selling of products. Pick-your-own fields, animal pastures, picnic areas or other areas used for farm recreational activities are not included, even though customers may have access to these areas. The OFDM outlines the definition of on-farm direct marketing activities, and divides these activities into three categories. The OFDM also defines on-farm direct marketing events separate from activities, and establishes guidelines for their use under RTF. The OFDM establishes the hours of operation for facilities, activities and events and outlines basic lighting, parking, sanitary, signs, buffers and event management planning standards to be upheld.

Activities and events, as written in the AMP, may be educational or recreational in nature, but must primarily market the agricultural output of the farm. The AMP is meant to keep the scale of on-farm activities and events in balance with the actual purpose of a farm market, which is to sell the products produced by the farm, Payne said. Community response A farming member of the audience raised a question regarding products which an on-farm retail bakery could make under the AMP. For example, a bakery may be using a farm’s own tree fruit to make peach and apple pies, but would the sale of an abundance of other fruit pies — from fruit not grown on the farm — put the farm in jeopardy of violating the 51 percent rule? Payne indicated that allowable products sold in a retail on-farm market, but not a product of the farm, would fall into either the complementary or supplementary categories outlined in the AMP. Lemon meringue pie would not be a product of the farm or its output, but if used to enhance sales of the farm’s

own value-added agricultural output of apple pies or fruit, would be allowable up to the 49 percent limit, measured by gross sales or by sales area. Another issue was raised by a dairy farmer, with a small creamery operation on the farm. He has been hosting small tours of the creamery, and making more money per tour fee than in subsequent cheese sales. Payne emphasized that tours are acceptable under the OFDM AMP as an activity which directly supports the sale of the farm’s own products, regardless of whether the ticket price of the tour costs more than the overall gross sales of those products. “Once you meet the farm market test, activity is aside from the product sales,” Payne said. Activities and events are meant to “enhance the experience of purchasing the product,” and not to be a primary reason for visiting a farm, Payne said. The SADC’s proposed On Farm Direct Marketing AMP can be viewed at: www.nj.gov/agriculture/sadc/ ruleprop/

direct market sales. Activities not covered, or which exceed the permitted scale or scope, would not be granted RTF protection. These AMPs do not cover farms which do not have a direct market component. The OFDM AMPs have several purposes. They establish the definition of on-farm markets. For farms where a farm market is used for retail sales (not wholesale), they limit the amount and scope of the sale of products which are not an agricultural output of the farm, and define complementary and supplementary products which are permitted to be sold. Complementary products are those which enhance the farm’s products — such as apple pie or cider donuts — at an apple orchard. Supplementary products are those which are the agricultural output of other farms, or customary food or drink items, such as coffee or ice cream. These products supplement the farm’s own offerings, and serve to attract customers whose primary purpose is purchasing the farm’s own agricultural products.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant “Black” sheep of the Brassicaceae family Come spring, the first broadleaf weeds to compete with meadows, pastures, and lawns are dandelions. The second weed which provides much more yellow than what crop people care to see in their meadows is yellow rocket. This weed is a rosette-forming winter annual that is usually associated with bare, disturbed soil, or new establishments, preferring nutrient-rich, mediumtextured soils. According to Charles Walters’ Weed Control Without Poisons, a rosette is a cluster of spreading basal leaves, as in the over-wintering stage of certain panicums. Yellow rocket foliage has a distinct pattern that develops on mature leaves: the margins of the leaves vary between straight-edged and wavy. Yellow rocket can be a winter annual, biennial, or even a perennial in rare cases. The leaves are dark green and glossy. Unlike many annual weeds, yellow rocket can tolerate routine mowing. Flowers are most often formed in the spring on yellow,

broccoli-like stalks. The heart-shaped terminal lobe distinguishes yellow rocket from shepherds purse and other members of the group. A publication by the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, Michigan State University, explains more about this weed, scientific name Barberea vulgaris. Yellow rocket is in the family Brassicaceae, like mustards, radishes, and cabbages. Mustards (even the wild kind) and cabbages are in the genus Brassica, along with turnips, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, collards, and… my favorite… rutabaga. Yellow rocket can usually be controlled with routine maintenance practices that encourage the development of sod. This should be sufficient to limit the presence of B. vulgaris to the first year. As with other annuals, the plant will not persist after flowering. In my own experience, yellow rocket is much more persistent in second year alfalfa stands or mixed hay stands. The year of seeding, wild mustard is the species much more likely to yellow the landscape,

once soils warm up. Wild mustard, scientific name Brassica kaber, is usually associated with a field planted to small grain. Most grain crops follow crops that left a lot of stubble during the preceding year, usually corn or soybean. Frequently such fields are not worked in the fall; usually the stubble is mulched during the spring when fields are cold. An accumulation of trash that winters on top of the soil encourages slime mold production, which makes the soil sour and waterlogged. And this situation can invite certain Fusarium molds. If these undesirable molds take over, they in turn set into motion processes which encourage the germination of mustard, wild radish, and similar weeds. This whole process can be largely avoided by incorporating the stover as soon as possible after harvest in the fall. Slime mold is not likely to take hold, if the decay system is functioning properly. Back to yellow rocket, from Walters’ text we also learn that this weed produces a taproot, as well as numerous stems from

a crown which can grow tall, branched near the top, smooth, angular, or ridged. The leaves are long, pinnately divided, with bottom leaves consisting of a large terminal lobe. These lobes form a dense rosette, with the stem becoming progressively shorter. To me these leaves do appear rocket-shaped (at least the way rockets looked in the early days or our space program). The four-petaled, bright lemon-yellow, racemes form at the end of each branch. Walters said that yellow rocket is a North-

American native and can be found in new meadows, along roadsides, and in fields. He stressed that high levels of potassium, magnesium, manganese, iron, sulfate, copper, zinc, boron, chloride, and selenium guarantee an environment which make yellow rocket feel at home. Yellow rocket can be killed chemically like most broadleaves. But if the soil conditions favoring this weed remain the same, before too long, seeds will germinate and bring to life another generation of B. vulgaris.

Practically speaking, the best way to bid yellow rocket farewell is to give the stand in question a good dose of the items which this weed really detests. Note: in the above list of elements, calcium and phosphorus are conspicuously absent. Giving a rocket-infested field ag limestone and your favorite form of phosphorus will take the wind out of Barberea’s sails. Once, upon examining a canola field, I checked out some yellow flowers which weren’t quite like

WASHINGTON, DC — The Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Conservation Stewardship Program will provide about $175 million in funding for up to 12.6 million additional acres enrollment this year. Although applications are accepted all year, farmers, ranchers and forestland owners interested in CSP should submit applications by June

14 to their local NRCS office to ensure they are considered for this year’s funding. The deadline was extended from May 31. The voluntary program allows producers to go the extra mile in conserving natural resources while also maintaining or increasing the productivity of their operations. “CSP is different than our other financial as-

sistance programs,” said NRCS Acting Chief Jason Weller. “It offers payments to producers who maintain a high level of conservation on their land and agree to adopt higher levels of stewardship. It’s about conservation activities on the entire operation, focusing on multiple resource concerns.” Playing a significant part in conserving and

improving our nation’s resources, producers enrolled an additional 12.1 million acres in CSP last year, bringing the total number of acres to more than 50 million. Many of the CSP enhancements improve soil quality, which helps land become more resilient to extreme weather. Several other improvements are available for producers, including in-

tensive rotational grazing, intercropping and wildlife friendly fencing. Because of the extreme weather in 2012, more interest and participation in the cover crop enhancements is expected this year, according to NRCS experts. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if the program is suitable for their opera-

tion. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligibility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types. For the checklist and additional information, visit the CSP website at http://www.nrcs.usda. gov/wps/portal/nrcs/ main/national/programs/financial/csp/ or visit your local USDA NRCS office.

smooth, but both canola and mustard can be either smooth or hairy. Brassica genus foliage tastes radishy… not bad. I plucked a leaf off the

plant I was examining, and chewed it vary briefly. It was quite bitter, definitely not radishy… thus ruling out mustard and

canola… and its place on my tongue. It’s quite rare that mustard and rocket are seen next to each other, just because they seem

to be invited by totally different soil conditions. But occasionally the topsoil chemistry ends up between what the two different weeds would like. As a result of this sort of hybrid soil, Brassica kaber and Barberia vulgaris can end up becoming neighbors. Another trait of B. vulgaris is its tolerance of cooler soil conditions than what would please

most Brassicas. This year’s long, drawn-out, cool, relatively damp spring has enabled yellow rocket a little more time in which to show off its flowers before going to seed. Even in springplanted small grains, wild mustard (as I write) is still deciding whether to wake up and start its own growing season.

Crop from A6 the desired crop. I thought they might be mustard, which is related to canola; these last two items belong to Brassica genus. Barberia is

A Few Words by Phoebe Hall Spring almost over We’ve waited through six months of winter for spring to arrive and it’s finally here. But now spring is almost over and it has been so beautiful… I wish spring would last six months too. First the robins came in droves and announced spring was near. Next, the Killdeer flew in, then the cherry blossoms followed closely by the ap-

ple blossoms. Our neighbors’ wind machines for frost protection only ran for one night this spring, much to their delight. I hope all the fruit growers have a better year. April 2013 was much cooler, with a very chilly Mother’s Day and plenty of flowers in bloom. We put in some short season sweet corn in mid-April and it took over two weeks to emerge, so I

guess that tells you how cool it’s been. When the lilacs finally bloomed, their heavenly fragrance was worth waiting for. The leaves on the trees are almost totally out, shading us from the beautiful spring sunshine that is loaded with vitamins our bodies are craving, after the long, cold winter. What a beautiful earth He created for us to enjoy! The barn swallows have returned and are tirelessly building their nests just out of reach of the cats in the wing of the old cow barn. We have seen a lot of woodchucks around; one

even came up onto our side porch. Two geese are warning us to stay away from their nest out by the pond. We’ve been enjoying our rhubarb and asparagus this year, thanks to my husband keeping his herbicide away from it… for a change. We had a weed problem breakthrough in one of our corn fields, so we had to make a quick trip to the farm supply store to acquire another herbicide to correct the situation. I rode along because my husband said it wouldn’t take too long, but when he didn’t come back out of the

Context is important; RFA responds to House Energy & Commerce Committee with 10 questions WASHINGTON, D.C. — On May 23, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) responded to seven questions proposed by the House Energy and Commerce Committee with 10 questions of its own. The RFA’s questions stress the need to examine the impact of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) in a broader context including the negative impact of Big Oil and the damaging effects of gasoline production on the environment. The House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee is examining the Renewable Fuel Standard in a series of whitepapers. In its third whitepaper, the Committee posed questions entitled, “Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Other Environmental Impacts.” RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen stated, “When assessing the environmental impacts of renewable fuels, it is absolutely imperative to make appropriate comparisons to the impacts

associated with the use of petroleum fuels. In other words, it is inappropriate to examine the environmental effects of the RFS without simultaneously examining the effects of not having the RFS. It is also important to compare new renewable fuels entering the market to the actual sources of marginal petroleum they are delaying and displacing.” He continues, “In that regard, the questions posed by the Committee appear woefully incomplete. By focusing exclusively on the environmental impacts of ethanol and other biofuels used for the RFS, the Committee is missing the significant environmental and public health consequences of increased petroleum production and use in the absence of ethanol and the RFS.” The proposed questions from the RFA: 1. What are the environmental effects of oil exploration, including seismic surveys, drilling

and well logging, deployment of marine platforms, and infrastructure development? 2. What are the environmental effects of oil extraction, including fracturing, pumping, and additional infrastructure establishment? 3. What are the environmental effects of crude oil distribution, including transportation (ocean tanker, rail and/or truck) and pipeline? 4. What are the environmental effects of gasoline production at the refinery? 5. What are the environmental effects resulting from gasoline distribution, including transportation, pipeline shipment and storage? 6. What are the environmental and public health effects of gasoline use, including fuel blending, fuel dispensing

Energy and driving? 7. What are the GHG emissions impacts of increased unconventional oil production from Canadian oil sands, tight oil from fracking, thermally enhanced oil recovery, and gasoline production, distribution and use? 8. How has the composition of gasoline and resulting emissions changed since 2005? 9. What are the GHG and other environmental impacts of our dependence on imported oil and the national security implications of that dependence? 10. Do current lifecycle analysis tools and models fully capture the environmental and carbon effects of oil exploration, extraction, processing, transportation and combustion? Dinneen concludes, “Context is important. As

Congress assesses the merits of ethanol and the RFS, a clear understanding of the fossil fuels being displaced by ethanol and other renewable fuels is imperative. Changes to the RFS would undoubtedly lead to increased use of marginal petroleum, fuels that have their own distinct environmental, public health and carbon effects.” In response to the Committee’s questions, Dinneen stated, “the RFS has succeeded in reducing GHG emissions, decreasing other harmful tailpipe pollutants, and displacing crude oil imports with more sustainable renewable transportation fuels.” The Committee asked about the impact of the RFS on reducing green-

house gas emissions compared to current petroleum fuel levels. Dinneen responded, “The RFS is unquestionably reducing GHG emissions today compared to baseline petroleum. As an initial matter, it is important to understand there is a fundamental difference between the carbon cycle of renewable fuels and the carbon cycle of fossil fuels.” He continues by stating, “The GHG emissions reduction associated with substituting ethanol for gasoline has been equivalent to removing an average of 6.4 million vehicles from America’s roadways annually from 2008 to 2012.”

My husband and I first found the hardware on one of our excursions to visit our son who went to college in Columbus, OH. At the time it was just a small store, but we found some very useful things. I found pieces for my oil lamps. They are a must if you live in the country. I do not know what I would do without my oil lamps. They are my go to when the electric is out. One night my husband’s aunt and his mother were visiting at our house. A storm came up and the electric went out. Since it was summer we did not worry about the heating situation. We did need to see to get around so I lit my oil lamps. I have several so I can put them around the downstairs so that we can get around. I remember his aunt saying, “It is so peaceful without all the noise of the motors. I can actually hear the clock ticking!” When my children married and moved to the country I made sure they all had oil lamps. The electric is much better these days than it used to be, but we still have outages. One evening we visited an Amish household. I had done some work for the dad and was delivering it. It started to rain just as we arrived. The oldest son invited us in out of the rain. Once the father arrived on the scene we sat down for a visit. We were all seated around the large kitchen table. As it began to get dark the mother went from lamp to lamp in her home lighting the oil lamps. I did not believe how easily she did it. It always takes me at least two tries to get the glass on and not have it filled with soot. Back to my catalog — the catalog from the

non-electric store has many fascinating items. A wonderful description accompanies each entry. I sat back and read that catalog from cover to cover. My grandchildren were here at the time so I shared some of the information with them. How is the younger generation to know what things are unless we tell them? I found so many unique items. I could go online to view them, but I chose the old way. Having that book in my hand was much more relaxing. Whenever we go to Amish country I like to stop at the hardware store. I have found many gifts for my family there. The store has been greatly expanded since we first visited. There is even a new entrance and much more room to park. The bus that I sometimes travel on even has a place to park these days. Some of the things in the catalog are clearly marked “made in USA” while others come from China. The cast iron cookware that I purchased was American made. I imagine we will make use of it at the pond sometime this summer. I found milk bottles, a butter church, and ice cream makers. Of course there were various grinders for making sausage and for preparing fruits and vegetables. The home canning section was extensive. It was just fun to read and see what is available. I might add that I make use of many of these items on a regular basis. Many times the old way is the best! Ann Swanson writes from her home in Russell, PA. Contact at hickoryheights1@verizon.net

International holistic planned grazing rancher, Ian Mitchell-Innes coming to Vermont and New York The Central New York RC&D Council and the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education PDP Holistic Planned grazing project in cooperation with the Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District, UVM Center for Sustainable Agriculture and the Endless Mountains RC&D Council are pleased to offer two oneday workshops with high density grazier, Ian Mitchell-Innes, who is internationally known for his ideas and practical application on how planned grazing systems make more profit and heal the land. Ian is an HMI Certified Educator, giving talks

and training in many environmentally different areas. The ranch is 6,000 hectares (15,000 acres) and the home portion has been in the family since 1863. Since leaving school, Ian has been ranching, having tried many different crops and management styles on the ranch until learning about Holistic Management. High Density, Ultra-High Density Grazing and Planned Grazing are practiced on the Ranch so as to obtain improvement in soil life, which enables livestock to have good performance with minimal inputs. He will inspire you to change your focus to create what you want by im-

plementing rotational grazing systems that increase the health of animals, land and soil, and improve water and land conservation efforts — ultimately leading to improved profitability in your operation. This workshop is ideal for both dairy and livestock operations, and for experienced practitioners as well as those who are new to mob grazing. We will survey the ecology of the pastures and read the land. You’ll be introduced to proper herd management strategies to improve ecosystem processes and animal performance and learn the importance of grazing planning and

Farm Credit East Releases Information Analyzing the Economic Impact of Agriculture on the Northeast’s Economy ENFIELD, CT — Farm Credit East, the largest lender to Northeast agriculture, recently released information indicating the economic importance of the agriculture, commercial fishing and forest products industries in the six Northeast states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New

York and Rhode Island. This one-page report illustrates how agriculture’s economic impact cascades throughout state economies. Combined, the agricultural industries within these six states generate $8.9 billion in farm gate value and create jobs for 130,000 people. Add in value-added activity, such as taxes and payroll on farms and activity from suppliers (i.e. veterinarians, seed dealers, equipment repair, etc.)

and this impact grows to $17 billion and 175,000 jobs. When products leave the farm, docks or forests, such as milk, processing fruit and vegetables, timber and fish, for processing, that impact grows to $71.3 billion in economic activity and 379,000 jobs. “Agriculture in the Northeast is a strong and vibrant part of our economy, generating jobs, local food production and economic activity in hundreds of communities,” 20 Years In Business

Largest

Dealer In New York

said Bill Lipinski, Farm Credit East CEO. “Agriculture has a bright future here in the Northeast and with appropriate state policies and community support will continue to enhance our

Northeast economy.” This one-page report was compiled by Farm Credit East based on information generated from an independent study completed by Dr. Rigoberto Lopez from the Univer-

sity of Connecticut. This report looks at each of the six state’s individual economic impact. For a printable copy, visit FarmCreditEast.com.

National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It was initially created to stabilize the dairy demand when production was at a surplus, but has now developed into an annual tradition that celebrates the con-

tributions the dairy industry has made to the world. After the National Dairy Council stepped in to promote the cause, the name soon changed to “Dairy Month.” National Dairy Month is a great way to start the summer with “3-A-Day” of nutrient-rich dairy

foods. From calcium to potassium, dairy products like milk contain nine essential nutrients which may help to better manage your weight, reduce your risk for high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain cancers. Whether it’s protein to help build and repair the muscle tissue of ac-

tive bodies or vitamin A to help maintain healthy skin, dairy products are a natural nutrient powerhouse. Those are just a few of the reasons that you should celebrate dairy not just in June, but all year long. Source: International Dairy Foods Association

Dairy promotion programs invest in future of food The National Dairy Council, in collaboration with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, were driving partners in the Future of Food 2013 Forum. This event was cohosted by the Washington

Post & Slate and promoted dairy and agriculture food systems of the future. The forum took place on May 22 in Washington D.C. and brought together key public figures to discuss the roles

farmers, government, and industry will play in finding solutions to food sustainability. Highlights of the forum are available at http://www.washingtonpost.com/postlive/co nferences/futureoffood.

NORTHERN NEW YORK — Dairy Specialist Kimberley Morrill is interested in helping dairies in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties earn more money. One way to do that is to provide education about how to reduce somatic cell counts (SCC) and, by doing so,

earning premium income. Morrill, Dairy Educator Ron Kuck with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson and Lewis counties and Quality Milk Lab Director Jessica C. Scillieri-Smith, DVM, Canton, are planning a series of three Quality Milk workshops in conjunction with the North-

ern New York Dairy Institute and Quality Milk Production Services. The workshops will have a morning section geared to farms looking for their first quality milk premium and more rigorous afternoon sections for those whose goal to get to the next premium or quality milk level. Both sections will be open to any dairy producer. To illustrate the economic return to dairy farmers of reducing SCC the educators use the following example: a 100cow dairy making 65 pounds of milk per cow per day that would like to increase milk production and get to its first premium at an SCC count of 250,000 which translates to $.25 per hundredweight (cwt) of milk, on

top of the $20 percwt for the fluid milk, at a bulk tank SCC of 400,000 misses a yearly bonus of $5,931 and a milk check of $7,518 for a total of $13,449, with a milk loss of 36,500 pounds. The Quality Milk Production workshops will be conducted locally starting in early November 2013. For more info, contact Ron Kuck, Dairy Educator, CCE Jefferson County: 315-788-8450,

Scillieri Smith, DVM and Quality Milk Lab Director, Canton: 877-6455523 jcs385@ cornell.edu. For dairy operators who wish to assess their opportunity for milk quality income before the fall workshops, Morrill suggests using the Uni-

versity of Kentucky College of Agriculture Milk Quality Economic Opportunity Dashboard. A link to the online calculating tool is posted at www.ccenny.com under Dairy.

We’re especially thankful the FCC has chosen to release Connect America Funds in its entirety because it helps assure these small businesses and households alike that connectivity service is a near-future reality,” National Grange Legislative Director Grace Boatright said.

New Kuhn large square bale wrapper The new Kuhn SW 4004 large square bale wrapper features a solid design and a hydraulic sliding feature that allows unique drivethrough operation. This provides the ability to widen the wrapper for easy bale loading, outstanding stability and unmatched visibility of the wrapping process. The patented loading system featured on the Kuhn SW 4004 has few-

er moving parts, resulting in less damage to the bale and less chance for contamination. Bales are picked up by the unique roller pair and automatically placed in their predefined position (horizontal or vertical start). Bales dropped in hardto-reach locations can easily be retrieved by backing over them if necessary. The patented design of the short top rollers allow the film to

wrap very close to the bale, resulting in less wrinkling of the film and less chance for damage to the film. The hydraulic sliding system provides a transport width of 8 feet for narrow transport. The drawbar with Cat. II swivel headstock can be controlled via the monitor for unlimited turning angles. Up to 10 rolls of film can be stored on the heavy-duty tongue.

by Bob Wagner, Laura Hobrook and Ben Hepler The Susquehanna Conservation District (SCD), in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), is planning a grazing and nutrient management evening field day for June 24. The field day will be held at the Hepler Beef Farm in New Milford Township and start at 6:30 p.m. The first one half hour of the evening session will cover the new nutrient (manure and fertilizer)

management rules. Then the group will take a guided walk and talk over several of the intensively grazed pastures. The interactive talk and walk will be led by the beef operation owners Curt, Brian and Ben Hepler and assisted by the local NRCS staff. The last part of the evening session will feature refreshments (locally made ice cream). The Hepler Beef operation has been in business since 1980 when Curt Hepler bought his first

beef cows. The operation now has almost 150 animals. Curt’s son Brian and grandsons Ben and Brett (both own part of the herd) are active in the haymaking, feeding, pasture rotation decisions, cow moving and fence maintenance. The beef herd features Angus, Devon, Red Polls and mixed Hereford beef cows. Laura Holbrook, Chesapeake Bay Tech. for the SCD, explained that “…this is part of the

Grazing from A15 continuing educational outreach effort by your local conservation district. We are trying to bring manure use guideline information out to the field where the manure management workbook and regulations meet the pasture grass and ground. Two main points of this talk will be what are animal equivalent units (AEU) and how to best use the manure management record book. We will also have soil test kits and manure analysis kits available for participants. The evening meeting is for beef, sheep, and other animal operations.” Bob Wagner, USDA NRCS Soil Conservation Tech., explained, “…that a grazing field day brings about the opportunity for like-minded people with grazing/pasturing operations to get together. They can look over what is working on this operation and to discuss what works or does not work on their own operations.” Wagner further explained “…that over the course of the last 20 years we, the SCD and NRCS have worked with grazers and those who have pastures to bring about more than 30 different field days. Past field days featured farms and farmers who are rotationally grazing their pasture and special speakers such as: grazing specialists, soil scientists, university professors, cooperative extension personnel and magazine editors. Perhaps the best of the best information is that which the farmers/grazers share with each other!” If you are planning on attending please RSVP to

Winners in each category re-

ceive prizes ranging from t-shirts to savings bonds, and the winning entries will be displayed at Empire Farm Days and at the New York State Fair. Teachers utilize the contest as a way to integrate agricultural education into their core curriculum through art, literacy, social studies, math, and science. Members of Sigma Alpha, Cornell University’s professional agri-

culture sorority, judged the entries. New York Agriculture in the Classroom and the New York Farm Bureau Foundation for Agricultural Education have sponsored the I Love New York Agriculture Contest since 1996.

New York’s Lake Ontario coastal waters and tributaries are a valuable resource for drinking water, recreational boating, fishing and swimming, tourism, and waste water processing, and a key asset in the economic revitalization

Manure Handling

of upstate New York. We have all seen algae in the waters of this region. It can vary in intensity from a nuisance to a health hazard. Algae is a major cause of beach closings along the Lake Ontario coast. High levels of phos-

phorus in that nearshore water are the source of these algal blooms. The phosphorus is a limiting nutrient in the growth of algae in aquatic environments. The phosphorus enters the shoreline from

streams that discharge into it. The phosphorus in those streams comes from a variety of sources including: septic systems, wastewater treatment plants, cropland fertilization, industrial effluents and farm ani-

mal waste. Studies conducted by SUNY Brockport suggest that phosphorus discharged into streams as far west as Oak Orchard Creek contribute to beach closings at Ontario Beach and Durand

Beach in Rochester, NY. Recent studies have shown that a portion of the phosphorus loading in the Oak Orchard and Black Creek watersheds comes from dairy farming activities. Dairy farmers have been doing their share: Many best management practices (BMPs) have been implemented by farmers over the years to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. These BMPs vary in effectiveness but none can assimilate the entire phosphorus load applied to these watersheds. There is simply too much phosphorus which drives the need to eliminate some of the phosphorus from entering the watershed in the first place. Prevent phosphorus from entering the watershed: The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County has developed a process that seeks to reduce phosphorus and nitrogen excretions, accumulations, and losses from dairy farms by reducing feed nutrient imports and manure excretions, and increasing crop and milk nutrient exports. Proper implementation of this process — called precision feed management (PFM) — can reduce feed phosphorus intake by 25 percent, manure phosphorus excretions by 33 percent, and mass phosphorus balance by 50 percent. PFM provides adequate, but not excess, nutrients to the animal and derives a majority of nutrients from homegrown feed through the integration of feeding and forage management. What does it take to implement?: PFM is a process of farm manage-

Wash Stations and Farm Food Safety A Wash Stations and Farm Food Safety workshop will be held on June 11, at Honeyhill Farm, 6241 Price Road, Livonia, NY, 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m. The June Rolling Hills meeting will feature a workshop on farm food safety as it pertains to wash water sanitation.

Robert Hadad (CVP), Craig Kahlke (Lake Ontario Fruit Program), and Gretchen Wall (Produce Safety Alliance) will explain the regulations and guidelines related to wash stations and demonstrate a wash station system. The meeting will include a brief

potluck, so please bring a dish to pass. The meeting hosts, Fred & Sue Forsburg of Honeyhill Farms, will be hosting a summer celebration bonfire following the meeting. The Rolling Hills Discussion Group is for new and beginning farmers in the Upper Finger Lakes and

is free to join. Fred and Sue Forsburg’s Honeyhill Farm is a diversified small family farm in Livonia, a hamlet in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Honeyhill produces organic chickens, grassfed beef, garlic and a select set of mixed vegetables

including heirloom tomatoes. Honeyhill Farm sells directly to individuals who come to the farm, at farmer’s markets and quality restaurants. Following the meeting there will be a summer celebration bonfire. Please bring a dish to pass for the potluck.

ment that revolves around a cycle of monitoring, assessment, planning and implementation. Monitoring involves on-farm records as well as feed and herd production testing. Periodic meetings of key farm advisors (feed, crop, cow, etc.) can accomplish effective assessment and planning of tactics for implementation. Achieving the day-to-day and periodic benchmarks on a continual basis will result in minimized manure nitrogen and phosphorus excretions, and whole farm mass accumulations as well as increased income over purchased feed costs. Who is doing it?: The Cornell Cooperative Ex-

tension of Delaware County has been implementing the PFM to help make dairy farms more economically and environmentally sustainable through management of homegrown feed production and dairy cattle rations. They have implemented this BMP at over 42 farms and 3,800 cows. They have reduced farm phosphorus accumulations by over 60 percent while increasing milk production by 1,400 pounds per cow per year and reducing operating expenses by $1.33 per hundredweight. The Yates County Cornell Cooperative Extension is working with nine farms to implement PFM with a goal to solicit 11 more farms to participate. They are currently working with milk co-ops

WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Presi-

dent-Elect Bob McCan, a cattleman from Victoria, Texas, made the following

statement about the vote by the Scientific Commission for the World Organi-

zation for Animal Health (OIE) to upgrade the United States’ risk classification for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) to negligible risk status: “This announcement by OIE’s Scientific Commission is very positive news for U.S. cattle producers. The U.S. being classified as negligible risk for BSE by the OIE further solidifies the fact that the safety and health of our cattle and our beef is a top pri-

ority for American cattlemen and women. With the implementation of multiple interlocking safeguards by the U.S. beef industry and our partners, we have successfully been able to prevent BSE from becoming a threat to the U.S. beef supply, which remains the safest in the world. The vote by the OIE, an internationally recognized, standard-setting body, is proof that

the science-based mitigation measures in place in the United States effectively protect our public and animal health. “This announcement is an important step forward in increasing export opportunities for U.S. cattle producers. This is a significant achievement for the United States, our beef producers and federal and state partners who have successfully collaborated on this issue.”

American Farmland Trust awarded grants in New York to help beginning farmers and save farmland During April, American Farmland Trust was awarded two Conservation Partnership Program Grants. The Conservation Partnership Program is a public-private partnership between the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation and the Land Trust Alliance that invests in New York land trusts. “This program is unique in the nation,” said Department of Environmental Conservation Com-

missioner Joe Martens. “The state’s investment… multiplies several times in benefits to local communities, improving both the local economy and the environment.” The grants awarded to American Farmland Trust will assist in the development of the Hudson Valley Farm Link Network and our No Farms No Food® campaign to engage New Yorkers in protecting farmland. The Conservation Partnership Program

is funded through the state’s Environmental Protection Fund. Source: American Farland Trust May E-news

Discovering new ways to help farmers, particularly beginning farmers, find a farm at an afford-

able price was a priority issue at American Farmland Trust’s No Farms No Food® Rally.

Assemblyman Bill Magee, Chair of the New York State Assembly Agriculture Committee

and Senator Patty Ritchie, Chair of the New York State Senate Agriculture Committee, have introduced bills to address this problem. Their legislation, bills S. 5377

and A. 7002, would require the state Department of Agriculture and Markets and Office of General Services to identify and inventory stateowned farmland that

could be purchased by or leased to farmers and take steps to make that land available to farmers. Source: American Farmland Trust, May E-news.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You The Kitchen Diva by Angela Shelf Medearis Carrots — from top to bottom The carrot is a very versatile vegetable. It can be used as a starter, main course, dessert or just as a snack. Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked in almost any manner imaginable. Carrots help to maintain acidic and alkaline properties in the system. They provide important vitamins for eyes, skin, bones, heart and muscle health. Carrots also can act as a blood purifier, a diuretic and help to relieve flatulence or colic. The mineral content in carrots lie very close to the skin and should not be peeled or scraped off. When selecting carrots, make sure that they are a deep, rich color. The deeper the carrot’s color, the more beta-carotene it contains. If you’re buying the carrots with the leaves, select ones that are moist and a bright green. Remove the carrot greenery as soon as possible because it robs the roots of moisture and vitamins. You can eat the green tops in a salad or use them similar to the way that you’d use fresh herbs to sprinkle on a dish. Carrots that are less than 8-inches long and relatively uniform in shape and size are the best selection. Carrots should not bend when gently tested. They also should be well-shaped, firm and smooth with no cracks. They should not look wilted. When grated, carrots should be quite juicy. Carrots are often sold with the tops removed. To judge the freshness, check the top of the carrot for darkening. Whether loose or in plastic bags, avoid carrots with green shoots sprouting out (not to be confused with their green tops) yellowed tips, soft spots or withering, as these are a sign of age. Carrots that have an excessive amount of new sprouts or

leaves could have large or woody cores. Also avoid carrots with large green areas at or near their tops. This indicates sunburn damage. Before storing carrots, remove their green tops, rinse, drain and put the carrots in plastic bags. Store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator with the highest humidity, they’ll last several months this way. To keep the carrots crisp and colorful, add a little bit of water in the bottom of the plastic storage bag; this will keep the carrots hydrated. Carrots should be stored away from fruits such as apples, peaches and pears that release ethylene gas, which causes carrots to become bitter. If carrots have become limp or dehydrated, cut off one of the ends and place the carrots, cut side down, in a bowl of ice water for about half an hour, to recrisp them. The coarse, inner core of older carrots should be removed. This Herb Carrot and Mushroom Loaf is an unusual way to serve carrots. It’s a great side dish with roasted meats or fish, and makes a delicious main course for vegetarians.

Herb Carrot and Wild Mushroom Loaf 1/4 cup butter, plus 3 tablespoons for buttering pan and topping loaf 1 cup chopped onions 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 1/2 cups grated carrots 2 cups sliced, wild mushrooms (cremini, shiitake, porcini or Portobello) 1/2 cup chopped celery 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 5 large eggs, lightly mixed 1 1/2 cups fresh, whole-wheat breadcrumbs 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until golden. Add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add

carrots, mushrooms, celery, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Saute until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. 3. Pour carrot mixture into a large bowl. Add eggs to the bowl, and 1 cup of breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Reserve remainder of breadcrumbs and cheese to sprinkle on the top of loaf. Mix the ingredients until well combined. 4. Spread the 2 tablespoons of the butter on the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 inch, oblong baking pan. Spread the carrot mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil, dot with the remaining tablespoon of butter, and bake for 5 to 7 minutes until brown on top. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Fellowship of Christian Farmers Farm Show Report

Kathy Brown, Marcy, NY, shares with a couple young boys at the NY Farm Show in Syracuse, NY.

“The world does not understand theology or dogma, but it understands love.” ~D.L. Moody And we sure have the ultimate message of love: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17 (NIV). That’s what we share and people continue to respond. Check out the pictures from the winter farm shows. FCF had a presence at shows in Florida and New York during February and March. We were able to share with

over 6,000 people, with around 400 asking Jesus into their hearts. With all that’s going on in the world around us — several shootings, trials for abortion doctors, and plenty of storms — people have a sense of despair. Only God can fill that need of emptiness. The summer and fall schedule is included for your information. Please stop by and say ‘hi’ — it encourages us. If you like to join us and help at a show, give the Browns a call at 315-736-5964. We are so thankful for all the volunteers who stand beside us, drive trucks and trailers to shows, help set up and staff events, and of course those who pray for FCF.

Jim Credle from Holland Patent, NY, attended the NY Show for the first time as a volunteer. FCF is completed staffed by volunteers. The old saying ‘many hands make light work’ is certainly true.

20th Annual Conference This year’s event will take place Aug. 2-4, 2013 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The event will include: • Tim Haas, featured speaker from Samaritan’s Purse • Educational Workshops • Special Music by the group “Heartsong” • Mission Reports Adults: $225 Children, 12 and older: $80 Registration deadline: July 1 Come early and visit the Creation Museum! Check it out at www.creationmuseum.org For more details, contact Dennis Schlagel at 309365-8710 or fellowship@fcfi.org

Pastor Ric Zacek, Redeeming Love Fellowship Church, Stittville, NY, goes over the bead story with some youngsters. We are always pleased to have pastors volunteer at the shows.

Pioneer Days - Zolfo Springs, FL

Laura Sorentino, Orlando, FL, helped out two days at the Pioneer Days. Families and young people are attracted to our tent and always love to get a free gift. The greatest news of all, Jesus Christ is always shared.

FCF at Pioneer Days, Feb. 28 March 2 in Zolfo Springs, FL. Shown sharing the gospel to two youngsters using our ‘Farmer Andy Doll’ is Ron Herrold from Indiana. Over 1,500 stopped by the FCFI tent.

Fellowship of Christian Farmers take beads to South Sudan Recently Tom DePalma, from Gallupville Gospel Church and the Fellowship of Christian Farmers, went to the South Sudan as an FCFI volunteer. Tom travelled with Water Harvest Ministries (WHI) out of Fort Worth, Texas. WHI drills fresh water wells for villages along with other ministries to the local people. At the present time they are also building a leadership academy. In three villages in which they ministered, the beads were a great hit. One pastor is already using them in teaching his young folks how to share the gospel and lead people to Christ. Tom experienced many miracles while in the Sudan and requests that we pray for the country. A new shipment of beads and rawhide is on the way to the Sudan and will be used to further God’s kingdom.

Veteran worker, Dave Iamelli from Cassville Baptist Church shares with a father and son. It's always great to have families stop by our booth.

Editor’s Comments Planting season should be nearly complete as you read this. Plenty of rain throughout the northeast and in other areas of our country should help in making a good crop. God has some words of advice in Ecclesiastes 11:4, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” Sounds like we need to move ahead no matter what we’re working at. In 11:6 “Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow — perhaps it all will.” (The Living Bible). It’s our prayer that you’ll have a great growing season. I’d like to share another scripture that has pricked my spirit, challenged me and impressed upon me the need to reach a needy world with the good news: Ezekiel 22:23-31. Please take a few minutes to read this scripture of God’s displeasure with and warning to his people. Time has a way of repeating itself. As we look at our country today, we find the same shortcomings as in Ezekiel’s time — sin. I believe much of our failings come from our neglect to observe and keep Sunday as a day of rest and keep it holy. Just drive around and you’ll see ball fields, shopping centers, etc. busy but church parking lots empty. We farmers can fall into the same trap. God made Sunday a day of rest. He knew what he was doing. It might do us all some good to take a little time off. How is the younger generation going to learn if we don’t show them by example? Verse 30: “And I sought for

a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but found none.” (KJB) Is that where we find ourselves today? I pray not. It’s time for one Christian to step up before it’s too late. What a terrible situation, that not one man could be found to “stand in the gap.” Makes me wonder if God is viewing our country the same way? The sin in Ezekiel’s day are pale in comparison to what we see today. There’s still time but we need to stand in the gap and sound the warning. And now, a little encouragement for you farmers and others who work so hard. Ecclesiastes 3:1-12: There is a time for everything, planting, reaping, etc. Verse 9 - “What does one really get from hard work?” vs. 12 and 13 “So, I conclude that, first, there is nothing better for a man than to be happy and to enjoy himself for as long as he can; and, second, that he should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of his labors, for these are gifts from God.” (TLB) FCFI is doing all it can to reach as many as possible. We have the good news. Please check out our event schedule and other articles. You’ll be blessed if you join us. For more information please give me a call at 315-7365964. Remember to give Him thanks in all things, Bill Brown


Holmes recently return from Missions trip to Albania

Children’s meeting

Albanian SOWERS Team

George and Julie Holmes, Trumansburg, NY, returned from Albania. This was their 19th winter doing missionary work in that struggling country. They work in eight rural farming villages. Now there are two churches in two of the villages for people to attend. The Holmes also have two active children’s meetings going each Saturday. The children are actively learning Bible verses, new Christian songs, listening to Bible stories and playing games. The Albanian SOWERS Team continues with the village work while Holmes are home farming. The SOWERS Team continues with Bible Studies, the two children’s meetings, relationship building and encouraging new believers. While in Albania this winter, the Holmes packaged 2,485 family seed packets. They were distributed at schools and in 23 villages. Each packet included eight vegetables and one flower seed packet. They also gave out 100 pairs of reading glasses to needy senior citizens, held orphan babies at the hospital, and helped a private Eng-

lish school with conversation. The Holmes also hosted two couples for 16 days. They shadowed the ongoing work in the eight villages, toured historical sites, helped with English classes, and packed seeds. Christian growth was very evident this year. Plus new contacts were not so confrontational, like in the past. God is at work softening hearts of the people to His Gospel.

Surviving Life’s Trials by David Porter Trials of life this past year confirm our belief in faith, hope and love offered by our Creator God. Trial 1: Wife is being treated for lung cancer and now has cardiac disease at age 76. I am a 77 year old farmer inflicted in right leg with paralysis from polio in Sept, 1949. We spend six months in Venice, FL where wife receives treatment in wintertime and then return to Adams Center, NY for the summer and six more months on the farm. Our dairy was established in 1939 by my father and mother with 198 acres and 35 cows. We now farm 5,000 acres, milk 1300 cows, and are home to 1800 heifers. Trial 2: Last spring we returned home to find that our son — who was responsible for the outdoor crew, crops, and machinery — had decided to leave the family business and strike out on his own after working for 29 years with his grandfather, dad, and brother. Where would we find a new partner with the knowledge, dedication and integrity of the son leaving? Trust and culture are so important. Should we sell the farm? Ultimately, our remaining son decided to seek a new partner. Our nephew, a Cornell

grad who initially had thought he wanted to farm with us but had left a few years ago to become an insurance agent, was asked to return. When we first approached him about returning to the farm, he declined. A month or so later, he, his wife, and four great kids decided to accept our offer and return to the farm. They also agreed to move into our home and we would move to a smaller, modular home on one of the farms. Where do you put “125 years of stuff?” With help from the family, we will return home all moved into our new home. The two car garage is full and many decisions await our return. Faith can move mountains. The great news is that my nephew called the other day to say that he is convinced he was meant to be a farmer. I knew it all along. Trial 3: The third trial of the summer was arranging the financing for the business so my son’s payout would be accomplished with minimal risk. Deal done. Praise God. Through all the consideration and ‘what ifs,’ the goal was to preserve family relationships. It’s most important to believe in God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and invite the Holy Spirit to live in your heart. Be an overcomer by trusting in Him. Walk in His will.

Lessons from Moses by Wayne Clark Did you ever feel that time was slipping away? An elderly lady who stayed at our home when I was growing up used to express it in the words of that well-known proverb: “Time and tide wait for no man.” For someone who was born when the Second World War was winding down, the year 2000 seemed like an eternity away for a long time, but it came and went 13 years ago. But we don’t have to look at the calendar — those creaky stiff joints, changes in hair color, dimmer vision, and many other little things tell us that time is passing. A program to encourage the daily reading of God’s word was begun at our church in January. A portion of scripture is

assigned on a daily basis, and sermons, Bible studies, and Sunday School lessons are based on the portions assigned for the week. One day, we read of Moses buried on Mount Nebo. Chapter 34 of Deuteronomy concludes, telling us about Moses in verses 10-12: “Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, who did all those miraculous signs and wonders the Lord sent him to do in Egypt — to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. For no one has shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deedds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.” The question comes up: what can we learn from the life of Moses? I

discovered this on the internet, and credit is given to Robert Anderson: • If people say you are all wet — remember Moses started off in a basket in a river. • Stay fit. When you’re 80 years old, God might ask ou to do something really big. • Be nice to your brother; some day he may be your spokesman. • Allow God to deal with your critics. • Listen to your fatherin-law; he may have good advice. • The majority is not always right. • Giants may not be as big and bad as people say. • Speed isn’t always the advantage. It took 40 years to get to the Promised Land but it took 40 years to get Egypt out of the people.

• Remember that God gives just enough manna for today. But most important is to see Christ in all of this. 1) When Moses climbed the mountain to look over the Promised Land, he saw that the best is yet to come. When we place our faith in the finished work of Jesus, we can be assured that, for us, the best is yet to come. “Only one life, ‘twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.” ~C.T. Studd 2) There are consequences to sin. Moses did not get to cross the Jordan because of his anger. When we sin, there can be forgiveness, but the consequences remain. 3) Faithful leaders are always flawed. Moses is presented with his fail-

ures so that we can understand there is hope for us. We are all imperfect beings. 4) What the law cannot do, Christ has done! John 1:17: “For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” Jesus Christ is not just a new and improved Moses, giving us superior commands. Rather, it was he who fully obeyed the Law of Moses and thereby the only one who can credit it to our lives. Our last view of Moses in Matthew 17 — he is on another mountain, now in the land, conversing with the Son of God and a voice from heaven says: “This is my beloved Son, hear Him.” Are you listening to Jesus? Is He telling you to tell others what He has done for you? Are you

saying: I am too old, I’m not a fluent speaker, I have many flaws, I have too much to do ... etc. FCF stands ready to give you the tools, through a local chapter, to be a witness for Him. Pray, donate, and volunteer. With God, nothing is impossible. “Only one life, ‘twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.” ~C.T. Studd The bad news is: time flies, but the good news is: you can know the pilot! Are there people in your community who do not know of the assurance you have in Jesus Christ? We would love to help you tell them! “...How can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?” ~Romans 10:14 (NLT)

Senate closes out week-long Farm Bill debate Congress is out of session for its Memorial Day recess returning on Monday, June 3. It is expected that the Senate will resume debate and finish consideration of the Farm Bill followed by immigration reform when they return in June. The Senate considered a wide array of amendments to the Farm Bill throughout the week with many more awaiting disposition. Senators John Barrasso (WY) and Patrick Toomey (PA) have filed an amendment, supported by the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI), which would repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard in its entirety. An amendment, opposed by ASI, to prohibit mandatory commodity check-offs was filed by Senator Ted Cruz (Texas). Neither amendment has yet been considered. Senator Kay Hagen (NC) offered an amendment that would allow the U.S. Department of Agriculture to use crop insurance to reimburse farmers for losses incurred during insurance policy reviews. While the reviews are necessary to reduce waste and fraud, these investigations drive up the cost of the program for honest producers. The amendment

passed by a vote of 94-0. An amendment offered by Senators Richard Durbin (IL) and Tom Coburn (OK) that would terminate federal crop insurance subsidies for farmers who earn more than $750,000 annually was approved by a 59-33 vote. The amendment also provided for a USDA study on the effects of the provision to the crop insurance program prior to its implementation. Chairman Debbie Stabenow (MI) strongly opposed the measure stating that such an

amendment would jeopardize the historic agreement between environmental and commodity groups. Under the agreement, environmental organizations pledged to support continued insurance subsidies for federal crop insurance if qualified farmers met all conservation and wetland requirements. The linkage between conservation compliance and crop insurance, as well as the $750,000 income limit, are not contained in the House version of the Farm Bill,

Serfilippi competes at PA 4-H Wildlife and Forestry Field Day On Saturday, April 20, Susquehanna County 4-H Clover Pups Club member, Rachel Serfilippi, braved the wind, rain, snow, and cold to participate in the PA 4-H Wildlife and Forestry Field Day at Rock Springs. Rachel, of Thompson, competed in the PA Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Competition, and finished second. This allows her a place on the team that will have the chance to compete at the 2013 National Wildlife Evaluation Event in July. The Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Competition is for youth ages 12-18. As part of the competition, Rachel had to evaluate areas around Rock Springs for habitats. They were required to

create habitat management plans based on the number of species in that area. Furthermore, they had to select a species, and determine if the current habitat was adequate or if it needed improvements. There was an exam which Rachel had to identify species, food stuffs, and pictures of different types of habitats. The PA 4-H Wildlife and Forestry Field Day is open to all 4-He<None> rs ages 8-18, and offers a non-competitive event for youth ages 8-11, and the Wildlife and Forestry competition for youth ages 14-18. In 2012, Rachel was the first place winner in the junior division. Congratulations to Rachel on a job well done.

The team members work as one team to answer hands-on environmental questions in five different categories; wildlife, forestry, soils/land use, aquatic ecology, and current issue. The teams also

present an oral presentation on the current issue. The current issue changes yearly and this year’s current issue is “Sustainable Rangeland Management: Achieving a Balance between Traditional Agricultural Uses with Non-Agricultural.” This event is hosted by the Otsego Soil and Water Conservation District with the assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, and volunteers.

pounds or a whopping 22 percent from March and 56.5 million pounds or 22 percent above April 2012. The Daily Dairy Report said American cheese and butter stocks are both “at historically high levels.” FC Stone’s read is that the butter buildup was larger than expected. But, FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks adds that “a weather event coupled with strong world demand could draw stocks down fairly quickly.” American type cheese, at 698.8 million pounds, was up 2 percent from March and 5 percent above a year ago. Total cheese stocks amounted to 1.12 billion pounds, up 1 percent from March and 4 percent ahead of a year ago. DairyBusiness Weekly (DBU) reports that USDA’s weekly Crop

Progress update showed a surge in corn planting progress, nearly catching up to the five-year average, but still lagging last year. As of May 19, just 71percent of intended corn acreage had been planted, compared to 95 percent for the same date last year, and the 79 percent average for the comparable date over the past five years. About 19 percent of the corn crop has emerged, compared to 73 percent last year and the five-year average of 46 percent. About 24 percent of intended soybean acreage was planted as of May 19, compared to 71 percent on the comparable date a year ago, and the five-year average of 42 percent. About 3 percent of the soybean crop has emerged, compared to 32 percent last year and the five-year average of 14 percent. The data is

summarized from weekly surveys conducted in early April through the end of November, with input from approximately 4,000 respondents, according to DBU. Feed price volatility is not going away according to Scott Stewart of Stewart Peterson in a May 22 DairyLine interview. Corn will lead the way, he said, and quickly admitted that forecasting the year’s highs and low is nearly impossible, citing weather as the primary reason. He said it’s important dairy producers carefully consider what they can do to position themselves. He warned that it’s possible to see $8$10 corn prices this year if there’s a serious weather scare or they could fall below $4 if we have really good crops.

Run for the Wall Riding for those who can’t, in rememberance of those who never came home This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Run For The Wall. The POWs and MIAs are remembered and honored each year as thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts and veterans make the run to the Vietman Memorial in Washington D.C. over the

Memorial Day weekend. Riders came from all over the United States by either a northern or southern route to Washington D.C. The Southern route comes to Wytheville, VA and this year over 700 bikes made the trip. Each year, the local elemen-

tary school children present a patriotic program to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom and liberty. Please take the time to reflect and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and liberties.

Wytheville Mayor Trent Carver holds a book written by fifth graders at Spiller Elementary. They wrote their ideas of what Memorial Day means to them. This book was presented to the mayor as well as Laurie “Airborne” Clay, organizer of the run. An additional copy made it to the Vietnam Memorial in D.C.

When in a cast last year, Wythe County youth Trenton Mitchell wanted all the riders to sign his cast. This year the riders did one better and presented him with his own personal vest and a Harley Davidson flag signed by all the riders.

18.2% higher than the five year average. Lean boneless beef prices in the US have been struggling to get much seasonal traction and the inventory number shows that total boneless beef stocks at 459.8 million pounds were 3.2% higher than a year ago and 25.2% higher than the five year average. Unfortunately the survey does not give much detail as to what kind of boneless beef is in

storage but anecdotal evidence and the price performance indicates that lean beef supplies are heavier than a year ago. Stocks of fat beef trimmings reportedly are back to more normal levels and lower than last year when the LFTB saga caused product to be backed up in freezers across the country. Stocks of beef cuts moved counter seasonally lower, in part because high beef prices

CBE news for May 29, 2013 The latest cold storage report did little to alleviate market’s concerns about the outlook for meat prices going into the summer months. Cattle futures pulled back yesterday even before the cold storage release. The latest USDA survey indicated that as of April 30, 2013, there were 2.336 billion pounds of beef, pork and poultry in US cold storage inventory, 5.4% higher

than a year ago and 8.2% larger than the five year average. In recent years, the expansion in US meat protein exports, especially in pork exports, has affected the size of the inventory positions since more meat needs to be staged before it is shipped to overseas destinations. However, with pork exports slumping and beef and poultry exports on a softer footing, the big inventory num-

bers likely imply that a larger portion of this supply will have to be absorbed in the domestic market. It is also important to look at the details in the report as the situation for specific items (e.g. wings or bellies) is vastly different. Below are some of the highlights: Beef: Total beef inventory at the end of April was pegged at 510.0 million pounds, 1.5% lower than a year ago but

forced end users to deplete inventories. Total inventory of beef cuts at 50.2 million pounds was 30.5% lower than a year ago and 21.8% lower than the five year average.

Study suggests dairy herd water quality linked to milk production UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — A recently completed study of water supplies on Pennsylvania dairy farms found that about a quarter of those tested had at least one waterquality issue. And average milk production for these farms was about 10 percent lower than farms with good water quality. Dairy farms rely on good quality water to ensure maximum milk production and herd health, according to study author Bryan Swistock, extension water resources specialist in the College of Agricultural Sciences. “While most dairy

farms routinely test their water supplies for bacteria, additional testing for salts, metals and other parameters that can affect herd performance is conducted less frequently,” he said. “In the fall of 2012, Penn State Extension offered free water testing for dairy farmers across Pennsylvania. The objective of the project was to increase awareness of various water-quality parameters that are not tested as often. These less-tested parameters may explain chronic herd performance issues.” More than 240 dairy

farmers who expressed an interest in water quality received water test kits, and 174 water samples from 41 counties were returned to the Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory at Penn State. That equates to a 72 percent participation rate. The samples were analyzed for 13 common water-quality parameters that are part of the lab’s basic livestock watertesting package. Ninety-eight percent of the water samples came from private water wells or springs on the dairy farms. The farms in the

study encompassed 51,000 acres and 18,000 cows with an average milk production level ranging from 20 to 90 pounds of milk per cow per day. Only six — 3 percent — of the farms in the study had water meters to document water consumption by their herd. “Overall, 45 of the water supplies, or 26 percent, had at least one water-quality issue,” Swistock said. “Average milk production for these 45 farms was 56 pounds per cow per day, compared to 62 pounds on the 129 farms with good water quality.”

Swistock noted that none of the farms with high milk production (above 75 pounds of milk per cow per day) had existing water quality problems, while 32 percent of farms with low milk production — below 50 pounds of milk per cow — had at least one potential water quality problem. “Penn State Extension encourages farmers with water-quality issues to install water meters to evaluate the herd’s water-consumption level,” Swistock said. “We also recommend providing alternative sources of water

to a subset of the herd to collect more evidence of the potential effect of these water quality problems on performance.” A recorded webinar highlighting the study findings and a fact sheet on drinking water tests for dairy cows can be found online at http:// psu.ag/10mcb8n.

WEEKLY MARKET REPORT


Section B - Page 10 June 3, 2013 • Let Them Know You Read COUNTRY FOLKS •

Got June Dairy Month? from the "Mielke Market Weekly"That's a consideration few people have; the possibility that we wouldn't have a "June Dairy Month."

You may recall the original "got milk" commercials used that scenario to get consumers to

consider what life would be like without milk. Taking that a step further, could you imagine a country without its football field after football field worth of cheese we consume each day, each week, and each month? Can you imagine not having milk for that specialty morning "coffee" that today has so many names and varieties you need a dictionary to define all the various terms when ordering? Or, imagine a country without milk for

the latest dairy craze, Greek yogurt? That likely will never happen but it could. I think June Dairy Month gives pause for the dairy industry to pat itself on the back and remind consumers of something they so easily take for granted, a fully supplied, safe, clean, wholesome, nutritional food/beverage, milk, once touted as "nature's most perfect food." Consumers again need to be reminded of the hard work, dedication,

animal care, and land stewardship that dairy farmers abide by but rarely hear about until the tiny fraction that don't get the headlines. Consumers don't hear much about the economics of dairy farmers; what it costs to produce a gallon of milk versus what the farmer receives and what the consumer pays in the grocery store. It's one reason I regularly include the monthly milk price per gallon that dairy farmers get so con-

sumers, if they read it, can compare what they're paying at the store. As I wrote last year at this time, "Like so many things in life, it's easy to take it all for granted but it doesn't just magically appear." What would life be like in these United States without milk? I hope and pray we never find out. Drink up Mr. and Mrs. Consumer. Be thankful. It's June Dairy Month....again!

Purina Animal Nutrition launches Cool Cow™ mobile phone app Purina Animal Nutrition LLC introduces the Cool Cow™ app for smart phones. The Cool Cow™ mobile app puts the tools dairy producers need to monitor and address heat stress at their fingertips. Research shows that cows can begin to show the effects of heat stress at a Temperature Humidity Index or THI of 68. Reproduction can be impacted at a THI of 55. Heat stress and an associated 10 percent to 35 percent milk production loss may cost a dairy pro-

ducer $1.60 to $5.60 per cow per day. These losses can continue to mount when reductions in reproductive performance and increased days open are added into the equation. “With the new Cool Cow mobile app, dairy producers will know when temperatures have reached levels that are stressful to the cow,” said Elena Lindemann, lactating livestock marketing director with Purina Animal Nutrition LLC. “This new tool is designed to assist dairy producers in mitigating

the negative financial impacts of heat stress.” The mobile app features an easy to use heat stress calculator for inputting the current temperature and humidity readings. The temperature and humidity is then translated into a THI reading that shows the severity of heat stress, ranging from mild to extreme risk; providing dairy producers insight on the current conditions inside their barn. In addition to the heat stress calculator, the mobile

app offers tips on mitigating heat stress from management to nutrition. The Cool Cow™ mobile app is available to down-

load for Android phones at: http://bit.ly/AndriodCoolCow and for iPhones at: http://bit.ly/iPhoneCoolCow.

milk cow needs to drink five gallons of water to make the gallon of milk in your refrigerator. Consequently, West Canada Creek is a significant hub for producing and providing local milk. Water is the most important nutrient for a dairy cow to have every day. Cows needs to have fresh water available to them at all times because it drinks a bathtub of water

everyday to keep its fourstomach body healthy. Hence, the largest component of milk is water at 87 percent.

lunch are included in the $5 registration fee. During and following the fishing derby at Harris-Dale Farm and Nursery, children and parents will be refueled with nutrient-rich milk, cheese or yogurt served by Herkimer County Dairy Princess, Rebecca Jenkins. Milk from 80cows that Rebecca helps to feed, clean and keep comfortable, is sold to the Greek yogurt plants nearby — Fage in Johnstown, NY and Chobani in South Edmeston, NY. “One day I ended up working the afternoon on a family-owned airy after having helped return a horse to this farm. I felt an immediate love for both the creatures and the great purpose — producing food for America,” says Rebecca Jenkins, Herkimer County Dairy Princess from Newport, NY. “As Dairy Princess, it is most important to me to teach the importance of dairy products as a food staple with the benefits they provide for a better, healthier, stronger life.” There will be time to hear Becca’s first-hand

accounts about dairy farming and to ask her questions about how cows make milk, how farmers make cows happy and how to make Maple Milk. She will share her favorite way to have her three servings of dairy every day, bestow “got milk?” derby prizes and play a game. If you’d like to volunteer your time to supervise junior fishers or to help aid in casting or baiting at the derby, please call Stefanie at 315-725-6061 or e-mail her at harrisdalestables@gmail.com. Harris-Dale Farm and Nursery is located at 8040 State Route 28, Newport, NY 13416.

14th Annual Herkimer County Farm/Home Safety Day educates students on hazards Herkimer County Farm & Home Safety Days are as fun as they are educational. These one-day events teach children safety lessons that can keep them and those around them safe at home, or on a farm. A Farm & Home Safety Day will take place on Tuesday, June 4, at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds, Frankfort, NY. Our hope is that those who attend will in turn share what they learn with their parents and others, thus preventing more injuries and deaths. The first step in preventing accidents is being able to recognize hazards and knowing how to correct them. The day is designed for 5th grade students from area Herkimer County schools. Approximately 500 students from West Canada Valley, Benton Hall Academy, Poland, Remington, Herkimer, St. Francis de Sales, Fisher and Mount Markham Elementary Schools will receive instruction on how to

avoid safety hazards. Participants are divided into small groups that rotate between stations where specific topics are taught. This year’s stations will include: 1) Animal Safety, Instructor: Dr. Nick Chuff 2) ATV/Snowmobile Safety, Instructor: Ray Jones, Cedarville Fire Department 3) Electrical Safety, Instructor: Don Lehman, National Grid 4) Fire Safety, Instructor: Chief Charles Conigliaro, Village of Frankfort Fire Department 5) Emergency 911 Procedures, Instructors: Don Peterson, Verizon Pioneers and Amy Jacobs, Herkimer County E911 6) First Aid, Instructor: Diane Ward, Herkimer County Public Health 7) Internet/Personal Safety, Instructors: Wendy Fical and Karen LaScala, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children 8) Poison Ivy/Poison Oak, Instructors: Jessica Mosher, Michael Marsh

Food Available Day Of Sale All Announcements Day of Sale Take Precedence Over Advertising


by Avi Miner, Cornell Cooperative ExtensionTompkins County, Ithaca, NY As the movement to eat a more locally sourced diet has grown, food producers have become increasingly creative with direct marketing to reach a larger customer base. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become popular because of its flexibility, risk management benefits, and potential for close relationships with customers. For Tompkins County the current movement began in 1990, and experienced slow but steady growth for about 15 years. During that time, vegetable shares were the predominant option, with some meat shares also available. CSAs generally adhere to several traditional principles, although in recent years the model has experienced significant evolution. The basic principles of CSA include: • Community mem-

bers agree to purchase a farmer’s harvest in advance of the growing season and a farmer agrees to grow the food necessary to meet that commitment. • All or most of the cost for a portion, or “share”, of the harvest is paid up front, providing farmers with funds to purchase supplies for the season. • When the harvest season begins, CSA members receive a share of the harvest each week. • Opportunities for shareholders to visit the farm informally throughout the season for pickups, u-pick crops, and special events. Over the past five years, Tompkins County has become an excellent showcase for the benefits and versatility of the CSA model. In 2012 over 3,400 customers in and around Tompkins County were enjoying a wide variety of products from area CSAs. In 2010, the number of shareholders was around 2,200, showing a 55 percent in-

crease in shares over two years. This increased participation is due only in part to growth in the number and size of traditional vegetable CSAs. Many notable changes have also occurred in how CSAs are run and what products they offer. The annual March CSA Fair sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County had 15 vendors in 2011 and 30 in 2013. First and foremost, the range of products available through CSA is wider than just vegeta-

Changing from B13 bles and meat. New products include a variety of artisan cheeses from throughout the Finger Lakes region, berries, bread, value-added products such as prepared foods, fresh cut flowers, herbal products, fruit, apple cider (fresh and hard), mushrooms, animal fiber, and even art. This explosion in product availability is evidence that more farms are seeing a benefit to engaging customers in a more active and continuous way than just single purchases. As more farms adopt CSA marketing options, co-marketing and collaboration between farms has given rise to organizations like the Full Plate Farm Collective, a group of several CSAs that customers can sign up for at the same time. This adds convenience for both farms and customers by combining pick-up locations for several CSAs into one location that creates good visibility for all participating farm enterprises and becomes a weekly fun event for shareholders to attend. The Full Plate Farm Collective has further capitalized on this method by aggregating produce from several mixed vegetable and fruit farms into a single, more com-

prehensive share. Another method of collaboration is for CSAs to partner up in order to offer multiple pickup locations, making shares available to a larger customer base. In addition to new products, CSAs in Tompkins County have branched out from the basic principles listed above. Several have adopted a pre-paid loyalty discount model in which customers pay a set amount up front and get an additional amount as a bonus. For example, at The Piggery’s farm store the minimum is $100 and customers get an immediate 10 percent boost: $100 turns into $110 of store credit issued on a card. Similarly, vegetable CSAs that vend at multiple farmers’ markets benefit from this model because it offers increased flexibility for customers and reduces the farmer’s effort spent tracking which customer has picked up their share or how many shares to pack for a given location. Shareholders who buy a pre-paid card can buy products according to their own needs and schedule. One drawback to the pre-paid discount loyalty card is that risk is not truly shared between the

farmer and the shareholder. A crop failure may cause potential shareholders to hold onto their credit for a long time, delaying their next purchase. This can mean the farm earns less from each shareholder, because the initial investment is much lower than for a traditional CSA. Wide Awake Bakery has also opted for a different model. Breadshare members reserve a set number of loaves ahead of time and pick them up on a weekly or biweekly basis, skipping weeks when they are on vacation or don’t need bread. Payment and balance tracking of breadshare members is accomplished through third-party software called Farmigo. This system works well for a bakery because of the need to know in advance how many loaves to bake for a given week. Like the store credit pre-paid card method, this sacrifices risk sharing in favor of greater convenience and flexibility for the customer. New products and models lend themselves to an environment in which CSA enthusiasts can easily sign up for multiple CSAs, covering a large portion of their

grocery needs with products such as bread, meat, cheese, and stored winter crops keeping CSAs going year round. A CSA that goes year round will need to do less marketing work to

re-recruit last year’s members. In Tompkins County, it is possible to eat local vegetables almost year round, between CSAs that are offering Summer/Fall and Winter shares and the

Good Life Farm, the sole farm to fill the Spring CSA niche so far. Beyond Tompkins County, the “full diet” CSA is gaining popularity. This gives

Mooofins will be awarded either first, second or third place. The competition tasked students with developing a high-protein, dairy-based product for the morning meal containing at least 51 percent dairy ingredients. The Penn State team created quiche-like muffins that “reinvent” an underutilized dairy product — cottage cheese. Cottage cheese curds are dispersed throughout the Mooofin base and are paired with signature flavors, such as blueberry sausage, maple bacon and bell pepper mushroom. For the competition, the team had to submit a product proposal, send samples to the judges

and present their product through a webinar. Team members are Megan Woo, a senior from San Francisco; Jared Smith, a senior from Lebanon; Kelsey Rogers, a senior from Howard; Anthony Herdzik, a senior from Rochester, NY; Kenny Vogel, a junior from Topsfield, MA; Shaina Melnick, a junior from Mount Joy; and Andrew Elder, a junior from Bellefonte. All team members are Food Science majors. “The team has spent the last year working together to develop this product and is very excited to be able to attend the ADSA conference to share our idea with others in the dairy indus-

try,” said Woo. The team was advised by Daniel Azzara, Alan R. Warehime Professor of Agribusiness. He explained the rationale behind the competition’s choice of morning meal products. “The Dairy Research Institute is committed to remaining on the cutting edge of product development to drive innovation and demand for dairy products and ingredients,” he said. “The second annual New Product Competition challenges student teams to develop a new dairy product for the morning meal occasion. “That includes any meal eaten before breakfast, for breakfast, as a morning meal replacement or morning snack.”

The morning meal occasion is big and growing, representing more than 100 billion food or beverage occasions and an estimated $200 billion in sales, according to the Dairy Research Institute. “Research conducted by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy demonstrates the gap for the dairy industry to develop new products and gain a greater share of these eating occasions, where dairy is presently underperforming,” states the group’s website. “That’s why the Dairy Research Institute, established by America’s dairy farmers, is providing a platform for students to bring their knowledge and expertise to create new products for morning occasion.” Bob Roberts, professor and head of food science, expressed satisfaction at how Penn State’s product-development team fared in the competition and confidence its student members will perform admirably at the upcoming national championship. “They are a very poised group, so I expect them to excel in Indianapolis,” he said. “Also — and I can say this from personal experience — Mooofins are very tasty. I won’t be surprised if this innovative product wins first place.”

Changing from B14 shareholders some of everything and often works well with farm cooperatives with a large variety of products. Modifications and rapid growth in the Community Supported Agriculture model over the past five years have proved its flexibility in creating symbiotic benefits for farmers, customers, and the local food economy in Tompkins County and beyond. Farms are finding that CSA often combines nicely with or even replaces other direct marketing channels such as farm stands and farmers’ markets. Avi Miner is a Local Food Community Educator in the Agriculture Program at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County.

Mielke from B1 Supplies are tight, he said, and “weather is going to be key.” Price wise; the Agriculture Department announced the June Federal order Class I base milk price this week at $18.93 per hundredweight (cwt.), up $1.17 from May, $3.69 above June 2012, and equates to about $1.63 per gallon. That brought the 2013 Class I average to $18.22, up from $16.48 at this time a year ago, and compares to $18.14 in 2011 and $14.42 in 2010. The AMS-surveyed butter price used in the calculation averaged $1.6579 per pound, up fractionally from May. Nonfat dry milk averaged $1.6367, up 13.5 cents, cheese averaged $1.8388, up 15.9 cents, and dry whey averaged 57.41 cents, down about a half-cent. Looking “back to the futures;” first half Federal order 2013 Class III contracts portended a $17.82 per cwt. average on March 29, $17.92 on April 5, $18.02 on April 12, $18.09 on April 19, $17.98 on April 26,

$17.92 on May 3, $17.79 on May 10, $17.80 on May 17, and was trading around $17.75 late morning May 24, including the announced January, February, March, and April Class III prices. Checking the cash dairy markets at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange; block cheese closed the Friday before Memorial Day at $1.7525 per pound, down a penny and three quarters on the week but 18 1/4cents above a year ago. The barrels finished at $1.7225 down 3 3/4cents on the week but 25 1/4 above a year ago. The spread between the two this week last year was 10 cents. Eleven carloads of block found new homes this week and seven of barrel. The AMS-surveyed U.S. average block price slipped 0.4 cent, to $1.8847. Barrel averaged $1.7627, up 2.1 cents. Export demand for block cheese had helped push prices higher while barrels faced lower demand, according to USDA’s Dairy Market News (DMN). A combina-

tion of lower export demand and anticipated increasing production for the near term brought block prices back in line with the more typical dif-

ference between blocks and barrels. Cheese plants are running busy schedules as milk supplies are available for Class III manufacturing.

Typical for this time of year is the pressure of increasing butterfat demand as ice cream production cranks up, albeit a bit slowly this year and

schools begin to close for summer diverting milk away from the bottle to manufacturing.

Cheese inventories are above year ago levels, but were not considered burdensome prior to this week’s Cold Storage report. Export interest continues to clear some volumes, but has slowed against higher prices. Retail demand is moderate, according to DMN, as consumers look for specials to make extra purchases. Process cheese demand is reported to be lighter as consumers wait for the grilling season to arrive. Speaking of exports; Cooperatives Working To-

gether (CWT) accepted nine requests for export assistance this week to sell 3 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. The product will be delivered through September and raised CWT’s 2013 cheese exports to 56.83 million pounds, 51.73 million pounds of butter, 44,092 pounds of anhydrous milk fat, and 218,258 pounds of whole milk powder to 31 countries on six continents.

lent of 1.65 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis, more than USDA’s projected increase in milk marketings for all of 2013, according to CWT. Cash butter closed the fourth Friday of May at $1.55, down 6 1/2-cents on the week but 16 1/4cents above a year ago. Eighteen cars traded hands on the week. AMS butter averaged $1.6387, down 4 cents. Retail demand for butter is slow to restart in some areas, according to DMN. Some grocery and conven-

ience stores are running ads to help push print butter into consumers’ hands. Sale prices on 1 pound packages ranged from $1.79 to $3.91 throughout the country. Orders from food service firms catering to education institution accounts are transitioning toward lighter summer ordering patterns. Butter production is seasonally active, but competition for cream is emerging strongly from frozen dessert and ice cream manufacturers. Cash Grade A nonfat

dry milk held all week at $1.68 and Extra Grade remained at $1.70. AMS powder averaged $1.6338, down 0.6 cent, and dry whey averaged 57.2 cents per pound, down a half-cent. Milk production levels around the country are trending both higher and lower, says USDA’s weekly update. Southern regions are mostly past their peak, while many Northern areas are trending towards their Spring flush. Increases in Class I demand in Florida have reduced shipments of milk out of the region. North Central areas of the country are experiencing a later than typical flush and are still building supplies. The Southwest and California report mostly steady production. Weather across the country has been favorable to increased cow comfort levels. Processing plants around the country are busy manufacturing various dairy products and Class I demand is slowing as more schools close. Cream multiples are mostly steady with some discounting for out of region sales. Class II demand is increasing, albeit slower than expected, as warmer weather has been slow to arrive in parts of the country. The California Department of Food & Agriculture hosted a hearing, May 20, to consider temporary adjustments to the state's minimum milk pricing formulas.

STOP

DairyBusiness Update reports that Western United Dairymen CEO Michael Marsh requested a temporary 13.8 cent per pound increase in the Class 4b milk solidsnot-fat price used in the state's Class 4b formula. “The impact of our proposed change would result in an approximate 50 cents per cwt increase in the overbase price,” Marsh said. “While this is not enough to recoup the immense losses incurred in the recent past, it will not only help bridge the gap between cost of production and milk revenues, it will provide a much-needed closer relationship between Class III and Class 4b prices.” “The temporary increase proposed for Class 4b is to get to what the producer side of the industry has been advocating for almost three years: a fair pool value from cheese making revenues.” WUD is the largest dairy producer trade association in California, representing approximately 900 of the state's dairy families, according to DBU. Lastly, a salute, in lieu of the upcoming Father’s Day and my dad’s 90th birthday May 29. Ken Mielke was a simple man who worked hard all his life, loved, and faithfully provided for his wife, Marge of 64 years, (losing her in December 2011) and for me and my brother, David.

Pasture Walks continue — Soil building is next topic Submitted by Laura H Hewitt, Program Manager, Endless Mountains RC&D Council Mud season is almost concluded for this year, and nearly 30 farmers faced it a bit more prepared due to an early spring Pasture Walk hosted by the farmer-led Northeast Grazing Initiative, with assistance from Endless Mountains Resource Conservation & Development Council, the Bradford County Conservation District (BCCD) and the PA Grazing Land Conservation Initiative. Topics demonstrated and discussed by host farmer Brian Moyer in Sheshequin included, in part, BMP’s such as laneway construction mindful of directing water flow, buffer zones to protect water, and evaluating and renovating pastures to ensure a strong grazing season. Staff from both BCCD and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) also attended, and offered information about Nutrient and Storm water management and the tools they had to offer for planning effective management systems. After an informational

Farmers attending this year’s early spring Pasture Walk Mud learned how to be better prepared for the then upcoming mud season. The next Pasture Walk on June 26 will be about Soil Building. Photo courtesy of Endless Mountains RC&D

tour led by Brian Moyer, there was plenty of time for informal breakout groups to work with Brian, the representatives from BCCD, NRCS, or general groups for participants to obtain more personalized information and discussion specific to their unique operations. Endless Mountain RC&D Council and its partners ensured the event went off smoothly, and even coordinated the timing so there was a hot lunch arriving in good time on that slightly chilly day. Mark your

calendars now and watch for postings of the other planned walks this year: June 26 — Soil Building, Sub-soiling and Tillage; Aug. 6 — Small Farm Pasture Management; and Sept. 10 — Improving Profitability with Low Inputs. Check https://www. facebook.com/NorthGraze, or contact Laura Hewitt of the Endless Mountain RC&D Council at 570-265-2717, info@ endlessmountainsrcd.or g to be added to the notification list for future events.

Senator Schumer considers offering dairy amendment by Bob Gray Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) may propose an amendment that would establish a Pilot Dairy Block Grant Program. The purpose of the amendment is to help enhance the competitiveness of dairy operations by providing technical assistance to promote farm productivity, profitability and environmental stewardship. The program would be administered at the state level by the state Departments of Agriculture under criteria developed by the Secretary of Agriculture. Given all the challenges the dairy industry in the Northeast is facing in terms of greater demand for more milk due to increased yogurt production, the Senator feels that additional tech-

nical assistance to dairy producers at this time could be very helpful. Source: NDFC E-let-

LAWRENCE, KS — The U.S. Cooperative Extension Program is approaching its 100-year anniversary — an important milestone for an organization that has helped to transform American agriculture since its founding in May 1914. Through the years, extension agents have taught farmers how to manage crops more efficiently, win the battle against weeds and other pests, and produce significantly more food per acre. Today the program continues to make a significant impact through nearly 3,000 local extension offices nationwide. Each is staffed by faculty and local educators affiliated with the nation’s land-grant university system who take the latest research findings and translate them into practical, actionable information. “The portfolio of services delivered by Cooperative Extension is very broad,” says Chris Boerboom, director of the North Dakota State University Extension Service and a member of the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA). “The

program undoubtedly has made a major economic contribution by helping to ensure we have an abundant food supply. But extension agents are also involved in a wide variety of activities that benefit farmers, home owners and youth in communities of all sizes.” A few examples of the program’s impact: More than 90,000 master gardeners trained by Cooperative Extension contribute free services to local communities that are valued at more than $100 million annually. Cooperative Extension personnel educate more than five million low-income people each year in how to improve their nutrition. They foster science and leadership initiatives for six million young people annually through 4-H, the nation’s largest youth development program. And they field countless projects tailored to the needs of local communities, as illustrated by the case studies below: • GEORGIA: Extension specialists at the University of Georgia used research findings

on herbicide rotation to advise cotton farmers on better techniques for battling glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) — a weed that significantly reduces crop yields and clogs harvesting equipment. • MICHIGAN: Students in a Saginaw County High School 4-H program sponsored by extension specialists at Michigan State University were taught how to convert used cafeteria cooking oil into biodiesel fuel to power school buses. Teens in the program shared what they learned with local farmers, who now are producing biodiesel fuel to power farm equipment. • TEXAS: Extension agents with Texas A&M University are conducting workshops in Hildago County to help small farms become more successful. Topics range from soil preparation and irrigation strategies to best management practices for weed control. They have also launched a farmers market where small farms and backyard gardeners

can sell their produce. • CALIFORNIA: University of California extension advisors in Sierra County are conducting research to help ranchers, landowners and land managers prevent the spread of houndstongue (Cynoglossum officinale), a noxious weed that is poisonous to cattle and horses. • SOUTH CAROLINA: Extension agents at Clemson University are helping to educate local communities on best practices they can use for battling aquatic weeds in ponds and other bodies of water. • NEW YORK: Extension nutrition educators at Cornell University are working with a coalition of community partners across a tri-county area on a program to prevent childhood obesity. They are focusing on improved access to fresh produce and greater opportunities for physical activity. In addition to community-based initiatives, extension agents pool their resources to partner on programs nationwide. For example, they formed an Extension Disaster

Education Network to respond rapidly to urgent needs involving hurricanes, floods, fire, drought, crop disease, pest outbreaks and more. They also have teamed to launch eXtension, an interactive website that consolidates a wealth of information — from energy conservation techniques and lawn care tips to profiles on invasive species. Extension scientists and educators answer the more than 4,500 questions submitted to the site each month through the “Askan-Expert” feature. “Cooperative Extension programs are funded by federal, state and local governments nationwide, and it is an investment producing im-

measurable returns,” says Lee Van Wychen, Ph.D., science policy director for the Weed Science Society of America. “Extension personnel make a major economic contribution by helping farmers nurture and protect crops from disease and damaging weeds, but they also are helping to bring research-based best practices to urban and suburban homeowners and local communities nationwide. All of us are touched by their work in some way.” For more background on our nation’s Cooperative Extension Program or to locate your local extension office, visit: www.nifa.usda.gov/qlin ks/extension.html.
