Farm Tour Workshops prepare producers for welcoming the public

by Jennifer Wagester The New York Animal Agriculture Coalition (NYAAC) strives to empower farmers to engage the public in conversations about animal agriculture and tell their stories firsthand. The coalition, in conjunction with the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council (ADADC) and the United Soybean Board (USB), hosted Farm Tour Workshops on May 20 in Batavia, NY, and May 22 in Fonda, NY. The workshops focused on helping farmers start those conversations through positive farm tour experiences. Jessica Ziehm, Executive Director for the NYAAC, and Melissa Osgood, Corporate Communications Specialist for the ADADC, facilitated the workshops. Both have agricultural roots and boundless enthusiasm for the agricultural industry. Jessica became the NYAAC executive director in August 2012 after serving 12 years at the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. She grew up on a dairy farm and currently resides in Washington County on her husband’s 600-cow family dairy. Melissa is from Wyoming County and also grew up on a dairy farm. She’s held her role at the ADADC for nine years and especially enjoys working with schools to enhance youth’s understanding of and interest in the agricultural industry. The Farm Tour Workshops started with introductions. Participants represented several counties and diverse roles in the agricultural industry. Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, dairy farmers, beef producers, county government officials, agricultural event organizers, and industry association members gathered to enhance their communication skills. Some producers had already hosted farm tours, while others were considering it in the future. Those in government-related

roles wanted to learn more about engaging decision-makers in tours to better equip them for making decisions that impact producers in their communities. The workshops continued with a presentation by Jessica Ziehm and Melissa Osgood on how to go about organizing, promoting, and conducting farm tours. The participants were provided with a copy of the presentation along with a CD of the 2013 Farm Tour Tool Kit. The presentation stressed preparation as an important component to success. The timeline for preparing a tour included first identifying the type of tour, who will participate, and what will be accomplished by hosting the tour. Farm tour organizers need to determine their target audiences, develop age appropriate activities, ensure key informational concepts are covered, make the tour fun, and keep everyone safe. Before the event, tour organizers should send out invitations (with clear directions and recommendations for dress and foot attire) and utilize press releases or other promotional materials for larger tours. As the tour date nears, organizers should try to confirm the number of attendees, arrange for restrooms and first aid services, write a script for all speakers, provide adequate signage, practice the tour ahead of time, conduct a safety check, and prepare for tough questions. Tips for success include setting up different stations with 15-20 minutes of activities, allowing time to transition between activities and answer questions, providing great photo opportunities, and offering snacks that showcase what is grown on the farm. Providing hand washing stations and/or using disposable gloves are also important to maintain participant and farm animal health.

Penny Heritage, co-chair of the annual Sundae on the Farm in Saratoga County, shared her experiences as a Farm Tour organizer.

During group discussions, the participants identified organic vs. conventional agriculture, GMOs (genetically modified organisms), environmental stewardship, and use of pesticides, herbicides, and antibiotics as the top topics for tough questions. Melissa and Jessica stressed that producers should be honest and prepared to defend the practices that their farms use to grow safe, nutritious food. A variety of producer associations offer educational materials on these issues that help farmers answer questions or direct tour participants to the appropriate educational resources. All agreed it was best to provide the information directly to tour participants than to leave them to search for it on the internet. Veteran farm tour organizers were on hand to share their experiences. Among them was Penny Heritage, cochair of the annual Sundae on the Farm in Saratoga County. The event started 18 years ago in an effort to connect the public with agriculture as farm numbers dwindled and residential communities grew. Penny shared what her team members have learned throughout the years as the event has grown from a smaller Breakfast on the Farm to this year’s Sundae on the Farm, which will welcome about 3,500 participants on June 16 at McMahon Thoroughbreds. Penny stresses that successful farm tours are team efforts. Sundae on the Farm is supported by

150-200 volunteers and a variety of local organizations that include the host farm, the host town, local businesses, agricultural organizations, chambers of commerce, and financial sponsors. Penny also encouraged everyone to be flexible and creative. Each year has been better than the last as the planning team adapts to challenges and continuously makes improvements. Producers interested in hosting farm tours or enhancing their communication activities through newsletters or other events have a strong support network. Jessica Ziehm can be reached at 518-527-3949 or jaz67@cornell.edu and Melissa Osgood can be reached at 315-4729143 or mosgood@adadc.com. Both are ready to assist with developing communication strategies and promotional materials. Producers can acquire farm tour signs courtesy of the USB through NYAAC and materials such as coloring books, pencils, informational handouts, milk cartons, etc. through a number of associations including ADADC, Ag & Markets, USDA Statistics, USB, milk cooperatives, and County Cooperative Extension offices. All Farm Tour Workshop participants agreed there are many ways to safely produce wholesome foods and that education is one of the best ways to address consumers’ concerns.


New York State Assemblyman Phil Palmesano (R, C, I - Corning) on June 4 joined a bi-partisan coalition of lawmakers and the New York Farm Bureau in supporting legislation, Assembly Bill 165, that will cap the agricultural property tax assessment at two percent. Skyrocketing land assessments have forced the cost of farmland tax bills to unmanageable levels. Currently, New York farmers pay $38.41 per acre in property taxes, this is the second highest rate in the nation and more than $25 per acre higher than the national average. This cost amounts to 15 percent of New York farmers’ net income being consumed by property taxes, as a percent of

income this is the highest in the nation. “Farming is a crucial industry to our state and each year more and more family farms close up shop because they can no longer afford to do business,” said Palmesano. “Capping the agricultural assessment at two percent will provide much needed relief to our farmers and help ensure the survival of an industry that is vital to our state’s economy. I commend my colleagues in the Senate for passing this bill with overwhelming support, and once this bill passes the Assembly, I hope the Governor will move quickly to sign it into law.” In the past 10 years, New York’s farmers have seen their property taxes

A quick glance at the numbers featured above showcases the urgent need to cap agricultural land assessments at two percent, mirroring the relief property owners received two years ago. Rising land assessments dictated by a complicated formula that takes into account national production value statistics and soil type is forcing up the overall tax bill on farmland. Currently, New York farmers pay $38.41 per acre in property taxes, according to Farm Credit East. That is the second highest rate in the country and eats up 15 percent of a farm’s net income. This puts farmers in this state at a clear competitive disadvantage.

essentially double. Additionally, the increase in taxes has coincided with pronounced increases to the cost of essential materials such as fuel and feed, as well as increases to labor and health care costs. These various increases are dramatically lowering the farmers’ bottom line and also prevent new farmers from joining in the state’s long farming tradition. The bill has already passed the State Senate with a strong show of bipartisan support and has passed the Assembly Agriculture Committee, which will bring it to the Assembly floor for a vote. The New York Farm Bureau is also advocating for the establishment of a workgroup comprised of various stakeholders and experts to address the long term problems related to agricultural assessment valuations. “The added weight of rising property taxes is a big concern for my family’s

Rep. Collin Peterson tells Grange members potentially ‘last Farm Bill’ still in limbo WASHINGTON, D.C. — During an address on June 3 to Grange members attending the organization’s annual Fly-In, Ranking House Democrat Collin Peterson warned we may be seeing “the last Farm Bill,” if the omnibus legislation even passes through Congress this year. “If we can’t get the votes then I think we’re done until the next election,” Peterson said during his luncheon address at the National Press Club. “But this might be the last Farm Bill.” Peterson said the bill is making some progress, and is expected to come to the House floor on the week of June 17. In spite of nearly $21 billion in proposed cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) funding for what was formerly known

as food stamps that makes up nearly 80 percent of the $1 trillion piece of legislation - Peterson said some Republicans still may not budge. “Some Republicans tell me that the high water mark among the Republican Caucus is 150 (votes),” Peterson said. “I agreed to the SNAP cuts because (Rep.) Lucas thought it’s what needed to be done in order to get the votes. For some of them, $21 billion isn’t enough. For some of them, $100 billion wouldn’t be enough.” Peterson said he and Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas (ROK) believe limiting the number of amendments to no more than 30 is necessary to allow it to pass. “We were very pleased and honored to have Rep. Peterson offer his insight

into the Farm Bill process to our eager crowd,” National Grange President Edward L. Luttrell said. “Our members will be using this information as well as others they learned this week in their conversations with Representatives and Senators today and tomorrow across the Hill.” The National Grange Fly-In is an annual event held to encourage members of the 145-year-old organization to speak directly to their elected officials about issues of importance to rural Americans and the agriculture sector. After Peterson spoke, the National Grange and members proudly presented the first William Saunders Award for Rural Awareness to RAM for their Super Bowl Commercial, “God Made a Farmer.”

dairy farm,” said Eric Ooms, NY Farm Bureau Vice President and Columbia County dairy farmer. “The increasing costs can limit the potential growth of the farm. In addition, the burden my children may have to take on in the future could prevent the farm from being passed on to the next generation.” “If we are going to have a healthy agricultural economy in this state, it is time we take the necessary step to implement a two percent cap on agricultural land assessments,” said Dean Norton, New York Farm Bureau President. “New York farmers deserve a fair shot when it comes to selling their quality products in a competitive marketplace.” For video of Assemblyman Palmesano discussing the agricultural assessment cap follow the link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_fhs71k yls&feature=youtu.be.

North Country School

by Katie Navarra Rain or shine, blazing sun or blistering cold, students rise at 6:30 a.m. and report to an assigned chore rotation. “Sometimes in the middle of winter when it’s 40 below they are all bundled up, goggles and all,” Mike Tholen, Farm Manager at the school said. Over the course of a 33 week school year, 90 students enrolled in grades 48 at the North Country School in Lake Placid study the “3 R’s”, reading, writing and arithmetic, as well as music and art. While learning the skills essential for success, North Country School students learn to appreciate agriculture and where/how the food they consume is produced. Chores are an integral part of the students’ daily activities. “(The founders of the school) decided kids needed to get in touch with where their food comes from and to become stewards of the earth,” Tholen said. In the 75 years since its inception, North Country School has continued to incorporate agriculture as an important part of its mission. Managing and caring for several types of livestock. Students feed, water, move fences for grazing pastures, and clean barns for the school’s horses, hogs, dairy goats, sheep and poultry. “We raise 16 hogs per year for meat, 42 sheep and between 5001,000 birds for laying and meat,” Tholen said. Students not only care for the livestock, they are also involved with har-

vesting them. “Wednesdays we have a Quaker style town meeting. Before chicken harvest we spend a lot of time talking about it, talking about a reverence for the animal’s life,” he explained, “it is a challenge by choice, so if a student does not want to participate they can be assigned an alternative job.” Vegetable production is equally important. During planting season, the entire school is involved in planting. “The whole school went out and planted potatoes,” Tholen noted. Every Monday morning, all spring long, students are busy planting successions of lettuce, chard and kale. “Each succession has 180 green and 180 red lettuce, 90 chard and 90 kale plants,” he said, “using a 100 foot unheated hoop house we had greens all months of the year, except February, this year.” By the end of the growing season, the school harvests 4,000 to 6,000 pounds of potatoes that are incorporated into meals for the students. The farm also produces nearly 4,000 pounds of squash. Fulltime students leave North Country School for summer break in early June. Their chores are then handled by summer campers enrolled in Camp Treetops, the school’s predecessor. Summer campers arrive in time to take over planting, maintenance and harvesting. Summer campers pick-up caring for the livestock and on any given day are out moving fencing for

by Katie Navarra Why food safety? Providing farm products that are as safe as possible is important to assure customers that quality, safety and their health are important to you. Not only is it an obligation to provide safe food, but it can also be used as a good marketing tool to encourage other customers to shop at your farmer’s market or farm stand. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 6 get sick from foodborne illnesses, said Londa Nwadike, University of Vermont Extension Food Safety Specialist. “It (foodborne illnesses) are highly underreported,” she said, “there can be food borne illnesses from farmer’s markets products even though it doesn’t really show up on the (reporting) radar.” Generally speaking, a healthy adult can consume some pathogens and not get sick. However, the young, the elderly, the pregnant, the sick, individuals with chronic illness, immune disorders and chemotherapy patients do not have the immune system to fight off pathogens. Best safety practice #1 “Transport and store foods at the proper temperatures,” Nwadike said, “Maintaining the proper temperatures at the market and during transportation is key.” Each State has varying regulations on acceptable food temperatures for foods sold at markets or distributed as samples. Regulations can even differ between counties. In Vermont, where Nwadike is based, hot prepared foods are required to be 135 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter, though she personally prefers 140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Foods sold at room temperature including produce, canned goods, and baked goods are not considered highly perishable. “The proper temperatures for these foods are more about quality than safety,” she said. Cold perishable foods including potato salads, dairy products should be maintained between 32-40 degrees and frozen foods should be kept at less than 15 degrees. “The most important thing is for every vendor to have a thermometer,” she emphasized. Best safety practice #2 Minimize the possibility for crosscontamination. “Ensure raw meat does not contact ready-to-eat food or produce,” she said, “if reusing (handle bags) ensure they are clean, no meat in it before, etc.” Often customers and/or friends donate plastic shopping bags to farms for use in the farm stand or at market. Rinse them or even wash in the washing machine before reusing. When serving prepared foods at the market or market stand, wash, rinse and sanitize all equipment and utensils used in preparing, cooking or serving the food. Best safety practice #3 Practice good personal hygiene. “This is complicated if you are working at a market as one person, but remember you’re shaking hands, touching animals, accepting money, wash your hands often and wear

gloves as needed,” she said. Presenting a good image by wearing clean clothes and having clean clothes works well as a marketing tool as well. Samples at farmer’s markets Offering free samples at farmer’s markets is a great way to introduce customers to a product. However, before handing out samples, know the regulations. “Regulations vary. Some places don’t allow samples, others require training. Find out what applies,” Nwadike advised. • When possible, prepare the samples at home. If cheese slices will be handed out, cut the cheese at home and place in a container with a lid to prevent contamination during transportation. Servers should always have a barrier between their hands and the food they are serving, whether it is gloves or tongs. • It is difficult to prepare produce samples ahead of time because the quality suffers. “Use toothpicks in apple slices,” Nwadike recommended, “also, put out small amounts for quality and safety. It won’t dry out or pick up bacteria.” • Post a list of ingredients • Wash fresh fruits and vegetables that will be used as samples • Display samples separate from what is sold so people’s hands do not

accidentally touch samples One resource on the topic of sampling is a publication by the University of Kentucky. It can be found at www.ca.uky.edu/cmspubsclass/files/ extensionpubs/2012-19.pdf. Offering prepared foods or samples

at farmer’s markets or on-site farm stands is an excellent opportunity to introduce customers to a variety of products. Remember, find out what labeling and distribution regulations apply for your area before getting started.

Factors that affect hay quality by Ashley Griffin, University of Kentucky Hay is the most common roughage fed to horses in confinement. A good understanding of the factors that affect hay production will help you select high quality hay. Plant Species Rainfall at the proper time during the growing season will affect hay quality. Drought conditions result in stunted growth and fewer leaves. Excessive moisture often leads to diseases that decrease leaf production. Stage of Growth When plants mature and reach the reproductive stage of development, their protein content, digestibility, and palatability decline. The ratio of stem to leaf increases with maturity, so the plant has a higher fiber content. Maximum nutrient content can be obtained by harvesting legumes when a few flowers start to appear. Grasses are harvested when the seed heads begin

to appear, and grain hays when the grain is in the soft-dough stage. Weather Conditions Rain and too much sunlight are the two most influential factors that affect hay quality. Rain beats the leaves from legumes, leaches out soluble carbohydrates, and packs the hay so it doesn't dry properly. If hay is baled when it is too moist, it will become moldy and have a musty, moldy odor. Excessive sunlight will bleach the color of the leaves and causes a loss of vitamin A. If hay is cured too slowly, hay will ferment and lose its nutrient content. Harvesting Conditions Harvesting conditions can also affect hay quality. If hay is cut and placed in windrows, the stems should be cut to allow for proper drying. Excessive movement of hay after it is cut can shatter the leaves and mix dirt and debris into the hay.

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant Boxing with Pandora According to Greek mythology, the first mortal woman to be created was Pandora. The top divinity residing on Mount Olympus gave her a jar, and told her to never open it. But obsessed with curiosity, eventually, she opened the jar, which modern folks refer to as a box. Box or jar, according to the myth, the vessel was opened. Pandora realized what she had done, but couldn’t slam the lid back on fast enough. Out flew every kind of disease and sickness, hate and envy, and all the bad things that people had never experienced before. Pandora slammed the lid closed, but it was too late. All the bad things were already out of the box. They flew away, out into the world, to plague humanity forever. On May 30 (last week as I write) an e-mail link was forwarded to me from (Retired) Professor Ann Clark, who served many years in the Agronomy Department at Ontario (Canada) Guelph University. In that capacity she preached sustainable agriculture as much as she was allowed… and, at times, more than she was allowed. The article caroming off Clark’s keyboard was titled: “Unapproved GE wheat found on Oregon farm raises contamination concerns”. The article was also part of a news release from the Canadian National Farmers’ Union (CNFU), headquartered in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I’ll hit the article’s high spots, adding to them as I go. According to Terry Boehm, CNFU president, genetically engineered (GE) winter wheat was found in the U.S. this spring when an Oregon farmer noticed volunteer wheat that survived after he sprayed with glyphosate (the world’s most widely-used herbicide) in preparation for spring seeding. On May 29, the USDA confirmed that the surviving wheat was, in fact) genetically modified glyphosate-tol-

erant varieties of Triticum, wheat’s genus. The GE wheat has never been approved for commercialization in the U.S. or anywhere else in the world, but was tested in experimental field plots in 16 states between 1998 and 2005. The last test in Oregon was in 2001. Unafraid of being accused of Chicken Littletype prophecies, Boehm went on record with his quote: “Of course the first thing that comes to mind on hearing this news is the GE Triffid flax contamination disaster, which cost Canadian farmers multi-millions of dollars in lost sales, reduced prices, testing and massive efforts to eradicate the

rogue seed from our system ten years after we thought we had gotten rid of it by getting it deregistered and destroying seed stocks before it went to market”. Boehm believes that American farmers may well be facing the same type of situation with their winter wheat, and that it is highly unlikely that this particular U.S. contamination problem “has spread to Canada because of our strict rules around importation of seed, however, it is both a warning and a

lesson for Canada’s regulatory system.” Boehm continued, stating that the biotech giant producing and attempting to market GE wheat was allowed to do field testing of glyphosate-tolerant wheat in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba from 1998 until 2004. Intense pressure from farmers forced the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to tighten up the GE wheat testing protocol to hopefully reduce the risk of contamination. He also believes that American wheat farmers are now very worried about losing export markets and suffering price discounts as a result of this confirmed contamination incident… and that, if this happens, their losses could be enormous.

Glenn Tait, a CNFU board member, takes this ball (figuratively), and runs with it further, as he addresses the liability issues. He asks why the huge biotech corporations standing to profit enormously from marketing GE wheat were “allowed get away with setting loose their unapproved genetic material via experimental field tests and yet pay none of the consequences when it escapes? The market impacts of contamination are always borne by farmers who had no say in whether, how, or where these field tests took

place. This is an injustice and it is not acceptable.” According to Boehm, Canada’s legal system does not address GE contamination liability matters, nor does the regulatory system consider the market impacts of genetically engineered crops or the effects of contamination on farmers who choose not to grow them.

2013 Angus Ambassador position is quickly approaching. Junior members between the ages of 17 and 20 are encouraged to apply by submitting a cover letter, resume and two essay responses by June 15. “The Ambassador program has created opportunities for young leaders to jump start their career in the cattle industry,” says Robin Ruff, American Angus Association® director of junior activities. “The elected ambassador will have the chance to attend industry events and learn valuable knowledge they

might not have learned in a classroom.” The selected junior, to be announced July 25, will travel to important industry events, including an orientation in Saint Joseph, MO, at Association headquarters; the National Angus Conference and Tour in New York; a Certified Angus Beef ® Building Blocks Seminar in Wooster, Ohio; the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Cattle Industry Annual Convention in Nashville, TN; the Beef Improvement Federation Annual Research Symposium and Convention;

and the Guiding Outstanding Angus Leaders Conference in Canada. Additional travel options vary on the selected ambassador’s schedule and availability. All applications must be postmarked by June 15 and mailed to the Association’s Junior Activities Department, 3201 Frederick Ave., Saint Joseph, MO 64506.

on paper (or more accurately on screen), wellknown journalist Andrew Pollack was writing, for The New York Times, an excellent article titled: “Modified Wheat Discovered In Oregon”; check it out at www.nytimes.com/2013 /05/30/business/energy-environment/geneti-

Seven cars cording to DMN. found new homes this Cooperatives Working week and the AMS butter

price averaged $1.6081, down 3.1 cents. Butter production is very active in the Central Region, according to DMN, helped by Eastern cream shipments. Northeast butter output is increasing due to cream supplies which were expanding ahead of Memorial Day. The increase in cream was prompting increased production of bulk butter as numerous butter makers were forced to expand inventories. Western butter production remains heavy with cream continuing to find its way to the churn. Bulk butter prices are varied, with Western prices ranging from 3 to 5 cents under the market, Northeastern prices being 4-8 cents over the market while Central bulk butter interest was termed flat by many market participants. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk remained at $1.68 and Extra Grade at $1.70 per pound all week. AMS powder averaged $1.6560, up 2.2 cents, and dry whey averaged 57.42 cents per pound, up 0.3 cent. Farm milk production is in various stages of reaching or moving away from the seasonal peak, according to USDA's weekly update. Hot, humid weather in the Southeast is affecting cow comfort and milk production. The Pacific North-

west is benefiting from moderate temperatures while Southwest dairy operators indicate heat is adding to cow stress. Memorial Week marks a seasonal change in fluid milk demand for many areas of the country, according to DMN, as educational institutions gear down, and reduce single serve orders more milk is clearing to manufacturing. Milk handlers and processors in most areas report manufacturing facilities have the capacity to clear the milk and, in some cases, plant operators were looking for additional milk for the weekend but hadn't had any luck on the spot market. Feed availability and costs continue to affect dairy operations. Milk marketers in the Central region note that many dairies opted for lower

energy rations to bridge the gap between feed on hand and new crop forages. This has taken a toll on milk production that may not improve substantially when the cows do get fresh feed, USDA warned. California hay producers are on their third cutting, with the Southwest into second cutting. Hay prices, delivered, stretch from $230-$250 per ton in California and the Southwest to $350$450 per ton in the Central Region. USDA also reported this week that, as of May 26, 86 percent of the corn has been planted in the 18 major producing states, off from the fiveyear average of 90 percent. About 54 percent of the crop had emerged, behind last year's 89 percent and the fiver-year

average of 67 percent. The Weekly Crop Progress report also showed 44 percent of U.S. soybean acreage has been planted, down from 87 percent a year ago and a 5-year average of 61 percent. About 14 percent of the crop had emerged, compared to last year's 57 percent and the five-year average of 30 percent. FC Stone's May 29 eDairy Insider Closing Bell says weather and planting progress have led to questions about potential yields and possible shifts of unplanted acreage to soybeans or other crops. U.S. cotton acreage will likely drop 15-20 percent and result in a reduction of cottonseed supply of a half million tons, possibly as

much as a million tons, according to Cotton Incorporated's Tom Wedegaertner. Details are posted at www.wholecottonseed.com. Meanwhile; DMN reports that the New Zealand milk production season is moving towards the lower point of the year. Milk cows are being dried off or culled. Pasture conditions are poor to fair; only marginally helped by recent rains. The impacts of the cooler weather and slowing of the growing season are noted. More processing plants are reducing schedules or closing on or before schedule and it remains to be seen what impact this will have on global dairy prices. Australian milk output was down 9.6 percent in April after being down 7 percent in March, according to Jerry Dryer's May 24 Dairy and Food Market Analyst. March data is the latest available for the EU, he said, and showed a 2.6 percent decline; with New Zealand down nearly 17 percent and Argentina, down 6.9 percent. Bottom line, ac-

cording to Dryer, is that milk production in the top five dairy exporters was down 3.1 percent during March. DairyBusiness Update (DBU) cautions that "The rapid growth of New Zealand's dairy sector is straining the island nation's already limited resources," according to Brad Gehrke, director, global trade analysis. He warned that "New Zealand milk production gains have largely been driven by farm conversions and greater numbers of dairy cows. Moving forward, producers will increasingly need to rely on intensification of production systems, more cows per acre and significantly higher use of supplemental feed which translate into higher production costs." As of June 30, 2012, New Zealand housed about 6.5 million head of dairy cattle, according to Gehrke. "In U.S. terms, that equates to taking all the dairy cows in California, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin

and cramming them into an area about the size of Colorado and then having enough pastureland to feed them all, plus more than 31 million sheep and 3.7 million beef cattle." Australian milk output is trending lower along seasonal patterns. The growing season is waning and grass and pastures are less conducive to needs. There has been mostly adequate moisture, but temperatures are cooling. More cows are being dried off for the season. Manufacturing milk supplies are slowing and more plants are being shut down for maintenance and idling. Back on the home front; the Agriculture Department estimates that March fluid milk sales totaled 4.4 billion pounds, down 4.2 percent from March 2012. And, speaking of fluid sales; two national dairy organizations have urged Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval to veto legislation that would allow the sales of raw milk directly to consumers, arguing that the food safety risks

Stock Tank Race scheduled for Dairy Day in Chenango County NORWICH, NY — The Chenango County Dairy Day committee has been busy planning their third annual stock tank race on Saturday, June 15, at the Chenango County Fairgrounds in Norwich. What is a stock tank race? It’s the same idea

as a bathtub race or an outhouse race, but with a farm theme! Form a team of 3 to 5 friends, take a livestock water trough, add a steering mechanism and wheels, and then decorate it. One person on the team needs to be the desig-

nated driver, and wear a helmet since stock tank racing can be dangerous. The other team members need to either push or pull the stock tank in the race, since no motors or motorized parts are allowed. Also, all the team members

must be at least 14 years old to participate. Registration forms are due by 11 a.m. on June 15, with the race to begin shortly thereafter — to obtain a registration form and entry guidelines contact Marge Davis at 315-837-4741. The stock tank race is

just one of several fun activities being planned for the 13th annual “Celebration of Agriculture in Chenango County” being held on Saturday, June 15, with a parade down East Main Street in Norwich to kick off the activities at the fairgrounds. Educational exhibits,

free dairy products, games and activities for the kids, animals, dancers and music will all add to the fun and excitement of this free, family activity! “Like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Dair yDay for updates.

often present in milk that has not been properly pasteurized." "Gambling with the health of your state's residents, particularly its children," is a bad bet," said NMPF President and CEO Jerry Kozak in the letter. "While choice is an important value, it should not pre-empt consumers' well-being," he

said, likening consumption of unpasteurized milk to a game of Russian roulette. The letter cited a 2012 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which found that between 1993 and 2006, unpasteurized dairy products resulted in 73 known outbreaks, causing 1,571 cases of

foodborne illness, 202 hospitalizations, and 2 deaths. The CDC also concluded that unpasteurized milk was 150 times more likely to cause foodborne illness outbreaks than pasteurized milk, and such outbreaks had a hospitalization rate 13 times higher than those involving pasteurized

dairy products. The CDC has reported that nearly 75 percent of raw milkassociated outbreaks have occurred in states where sale of raw milk was legal. Looking "back to the futures;" first half Federal order 2013 Class III contracts portended a $17.92 average 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, $17.72 on May 24, and was trading around $17.70 late morning May 31, including the announced January, February, March, and April Class III prices.

Mielke from A9 of the measure represent too great a gamble with the public's health. National Milk (NMPF) and the International Dairy Foods Association stated in a letter to Sandoval that Assembly Bill 209 would "greatly increase Nevadans' risk of serious illness because of the potentially dangerous bacteria that are

Butler (R,C,I-Newport) In all my years as a legislator, I’m still struck, although not at all surprised, by the disregard New York City politicians have for Upstate New York, especially here in our agricultural communities. Their continued push for the so-called Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act is little more than an effort to unionize farmworkers, who don’t need it or want it. Over and over during a recent debate on this

bill, the sponsor revealed her limited understanding of our agricultural industry and its labor conditions. Although the bill ultimately passed, I joined with virtually every one of my Republican colleagues to defend our dairy industry in voting no. The sponsor had no idea that nationally New York is 27th in agricultural production and second in farm labor costs. On average, New York’s farm laborers are earning well above the minimum wage. Additionally, the sponsor

evaded answering whether or not she has ever been on a farm, which is an important question, as she introduces this legislation year after year. Personally, I think that someone who has never even been on a farm and chooses to ignore reports from Cornell University and the New York State Departments of Labor and Health that laude New York’s farm working conditions shouldn’t be touching agricultural labor policy at all. New York’s labor laws already ensure exceptional working and living conditions for our agricultural la-

borers. The Cornell study showed that workers had few concerns about working conditions, and were looking for opportunities to work as many hours as possible and to learn English, further their education and increase their access to health care, all of which our agricultural communities and the state have been working cooperatively to improve. Farm laborers in New York know they can earn a good living here due to good working conditions and the short but intense farming season. The kind of collective bargaining outlined by

the New York City farm bill would threaten their work opportunities and cost farmers millions due to lost production and crops. We mustn’t allow New York City politicians to force union-style negotiations on them during the planting season, the harvest and other important production times. Doing business in New York already is difficult enough. Family farms are on the decline with the majority of them operating at a loss, with the net loss averaging about $18,000. If this bill becomes law, these small farms will suffer and possibly shut down for good. Our state’s farmers already are struggling to keep up with national and international competition; this bill would further weaken their competitive edge and hinder growth in emerging agricultural markets. In fact, these New York City politicians would end up killing the very industry these folks rely on for their livelihoods. This resulting

devastation on our farms would be felt by all, causing the cost of groceries to increase, putting more pressure on already strapped middleclass families. Who is this Farmworkers Fair Labor bill really meant to serve? Is it fair to the workers? Is it fair to the farmers? Is it fair to the communities that rely on local farms as employers? I think you and I know that this bill is hardly fair.

USDA to interview farmers and ranchers for crop and livestock reports USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is gearing up to contact farmers and ranchers across the country to gather information about this season’s crop production, supplies of grain in storage, and livestock inventory. During the first two weeks of June, NASS will gather information about U.S. crops and livestock through several surveys focusing on agricultural acreage, crops produced and stored, and hog inventory. “Cool and wet soil conditions continue to impede planting progress and delay spring field work in some parts of the country while others are still dealing with the impact from last year’s drought,” said Bob Bass, Director of NASS’s National Operations Center. “As we move into the crop production season there is still a sense of uncertainty about how it is shaping up across the country. Responses to the June surveys will help ensure that decisions affecting producers and their operations are

based on the facts, straight from the source.” Depending on the survey, producers will receive a survey form to complete or be personally interviewed by a trained enumerator. Those who receive a survey can fill it out using NASS’s easy and secure online system or mail it back. NASS representatives will contact farmers and ranchers who do not respond to the survey to help them provide responses over the telephone. “The information from these surveys contributes to a stable economic climate, helps producers make marketing decisions, and reduces risk. It is critical for market information

to be distributed widely in all levels of farming to ensure all participants are equally informed,” added Bass. “This assures a competitive market structure far superior to one where no one or only a few are informed.” As with all NASS surveys, the information collected in the June surveys is kept strictly confidential, as required by federal law. NASS will not publish any individual’s information. NASS is committed to preserving a relationship of mutual respect and trust with those who supply and use the information collected and provided. For more information about these surveys, visit www.nass.usda.gov/Surveys.

by Ann Swanson Winter, Summer, and Spring all rolled into one! This past week we have had snow, rain, wind, and sultry weather. We went from a couple nights of killing frost at the beginning of the week to temperatures near 90 before the week ended. My allergies have

been in full swing. Everything is in blossom and that gets to me. I could not believe it when I headed out the door on an errand. Yes, those were really snowflakes in the air. It did not stick to the ground, but it continued to come down for quite a while. When I got to

was uncomfortable. You can only take off so many clothes. The longest day of the year has not arrived so summer is not officially here. Many consider it to be summer after Memorial Day. I did not even plant flowers at the cemetery because I refused to go down every night to cover them and return the next morning to uncover them. The graves have shrub planted so they look presentable anyway. Our pretty purple irises were in bud

but not yet in blossom. Here at home mine are long gone. We can be very thankful that we did not get the storms that they had out on the plains. Although a tornado did touch down, the effects were comparatively small. It was just a minor inconvenience you might say. Our farm house has seen two tornados through the years. The first one that came took off part of our roof. We had moved into the house the fall before the storm. Besides loosing roofing we lost a bunch of trees out back. Thank goodness the barn suffered no damage and all of the animals were all right. We did find a high school diploma from a city about 35 miles from here. I mailed it back to the school so that it could get to its

rightful owner. The second tornado hit during the month of August. That year I had just returned from the fair. Our children showed cattle and we had been gone all day. Right after we got into the house the storm hit. A large branch from one of our trees went right through the windshield of our car. Of course, the electric was out. A tree was felled in the yard as well. Even as I write about all that I consider how lucky we were not to have any significant damage to our home. It seems like there have been a lot of fierce storms lately. There is not much that can be done about Mother Nature. We just have to endure the storm and mop up afterwards.

Farmers are eternally optimistic Anytime we receive a decent rain around Memorial Day as we have this year, there’s a 50 percent chance we’ll harvest a second cutting of hay. That is, as long

as we get the warm temperatures and if we can get the first cutting off without too many difficulties. But we all know the ‘weather Creator’ is the final denominator. Last year the alfalfa growers well remember

the resulting small crop. Today a fruit grower told us that there is the potential for a record crop state-side. It doesn’t appear at this time any area was adversely affected by the weather. The end results are; abundant crops — lower prices. It seems that farmers are some of the most eternally optimistic people on the planet. No matter what is thrown at them, they always seem to be able to find just a little glimmer of hope in every lining of every cloud to enable them to keep pressing on! Our second son pastors a church in southeastern Pennsylvania, in Bucks County. Almost on a weekly basis, he uses his farm experiences and other farm stories to communicate with his congregation. Some of his illustrations

we’ve never heard before and I’m surprised he lets his kids listen to them… I wouldn’t if I were him. We listen to him long distance on the church’s website and whoever said being raised on a farm was boring has never listened to his illustrations. The whole congregation loves them. This is one of his recent farm illustrations on hope. It seems that a farmer had twin sons, one was very pessimistic about everything and the other was an eternal optimist like farmers are. On their 14th birthday, the father decided the pessimistic son needed help, so he gave him a beautiful pony. The son was completely dejected because he would now have to feed and clean up behind it. But to the other son who was always optimistic, he gave a big

The farmer asked his son, “What in the world are you doing?” He excitedly replied, “I’ve always wanted a pony and with all the pony droppings in here, there has to be a pony in here some place.” I guess it all depends on your perspective if you are going to make it in farming.

what the drought and the leafhopper did to their hay crops. And we also shouldn’t forget our friendly armyworm invasion. Well, this year we’re having a whole new set of problems with some old, hungry critters. Over the years, the alfalfa weevil usually made its yearly appearance, according to the CCE crop management guide, around the 20th of May. But this year in our alfalfa fields we noticed substantial feeding 10 days earlier and it looks like the beneficial parasites were caught napping because of the earlier date of the invasion. Needless to say, we were napping too. I hope they aren’t a new mutated version of the old alfalfa weevil. We also remember last year what the fruit growers endured with the fickle weather and

Forage feeding losses can add up by Rick Rasby, Beef Specialist, Cow/Calf Management and Reproduction University of Nebraska

A lot of long hours and expense are invested into harvesting quality forages and storing them for use at a later time. As a producer, you wouldn’t dream of throwing away one-third of the forages that were intended to be fed to the cow herd. Many times, that’s what happens when livestock are allowed unlimited access to hay in a feeding situation. Livestock trample, over consume, foul on, and use for bedding 25 to 45 percent of the hay when it is fed with no restrictions or is not processed. As forage feeding systems are incorporated into the feeding system to reduce feeding losses to the lowest possible, the financial commitment will increase. The key is to balance the financial outlay to implement a feeding system to reduce forage losses with the dollars saved in reducing the amount of forage needed. Many times this is dependent on the cost of the forage and, as the cost of the harvested forage increases, it appears easier to justify the cost of machinery and feeding devises. Feeding Frequency and Amount Hay loss and waste can be reduced by feeding hay daily according to diet needs. Compared to feeding a several-day supply each time hay is provided, daily feeding will force livestock to eat hay they might otherwise refuse, over consume, trample and waste. Cattle will waste less hay when the amount fed is limited to what is needed in a single day. One-fourth more hay is needed when a 4-day supply of hay is fed with free access than when a 1day supply is fed. Excessive hay consumption can be a major problem when large hay packages are fed without restriction. A dry, pregnant cow can eat up to 15 to 20 percent more hay than her needs when allowed free access to a good quality hay. A cow that is 1200 lb. consuming 27 lb. daily as is, with free access to the forage could consume 31 lb. daily. This can amount to almost 500 pounds per cow over a 4-month feeding period for spring calving cows. A 100-cow herd

may over consume 24 tons of hay if the cows have free access to hay. This is in addition to the extra needed to replace wasted hay when fed free access. Devises To Reduce Forage Losses Feeding losses when hay is fed daily in bunks can be kept in the 3 percent to 14 percent range. Well designed feeders (with solid bottom panels) will have losses in the 3 percent to 10 percent range for an average forage loss of about 6 percent. Large bales fed free choice without a rack or feeder in muddy conditions can result in forage losses exceeding 45 percent. Feed bunks are excellent for feeding small square bales. Round bales can be fed in specially designed racks. Loose or compressed hay stacks can have collapsible racks or electric wire around them to reduce trampling the hay around the edges. No matter how hay is fed, efforts that limit the amount of hay accessible to trampling will save feed. Feed hay at a well drained site and firm ground when possible. Hay racks or bale feeders with solid barriers at the bottom prevent livestock from pulling hay out to be stepped on. Some producers have fed forages on an up-slope with the hay next to an electric fence. Their observation is that, when the hay is spread in a long line so that all cows have access next to the electric fence, forage losses due to trampling are minimal. The type of forage presented to the cattle can impact the amount lost during the feeding process. Allowing cattle free access to forages that have a thicker stalk or stem results in greater forages losses during feeding compared to thin stemmed forages like hays. When cattle are fed forages like sorghum-sudan hay and the feeding

method and access are not controlled, they tend to select the leaves and upper parts of the stalk and not the lower part of the stalk resulting in greater feeding losses. When feeding method and amount that cows have access to is controlled, feeding losses are not much different among forage types. Even if big-round-bale feeders are used to reduce forage feeding losses, there still can be substantial losses. There is not a lot of data on bale packaging quality on feeding losses. It appears loosely packaged bales fed in a bale feeder can result in high feeding losses. Cows pull the loose hay through the feeder and forage is deposited on the ground around the feeder. Dry matter losses occur when handling hay from field to feeding. By the time the hay is fed, losses can be substantial, and can essentially increase the amount of production needed from the original standing crop by 35 percent. By effectively controlling the amount of hay lost and wasted during harvest, storage, and feeding, production costs can be reduced and hay making more profitable. Grinding or Processing There are some misconceptions that grinding forages will increase forages quality. This is not true. In some grinding situations, quality may decrease, especially if the hay is ground on a windy day. Grinding decreases particle size and when particle size is decreased, the amount of time that the ground forage needs to stay in the rumen to be digested decreases. A decrease in rumen retention time means that forage intake will increase. This means that a cow can consume more of the forage. This concept becomes important when feeding cows a low quality forage and intake is re-

Hay and Forage stricted because it will not pass through the rumen at a very rapid rate because it takes so long to digest. Grinding or processing hay in a bale processor is a method to increase consumption of low to medium quality forages. Grinding different forages together will allow to combine forages

of differing quality for best use in a cow feeding diet. It also allows a way to manage problem forages such as forages that contain nitrate levels that are at the potentially toxic level. Controlling forage feeding losses is important. It must also be recognized that as forage feeding loss-

es move closer to zero, money will be invested on extra equipment or material such as bunks, feeding racks, inverted tires, etc. If the forage is ground, a feed wagon and/or loader on the tractor is needed. Costs need to be balanced with savings. Source: www.extension.org

entire mowing width was merged by the mower into a narrower swath. The result of a more rapid dry down rate is higher quality forage at harvest. Forage investigators note that the quality of the forage that reaches the cow’s mouth is dependent on three factors: when you start harvesting, how long it takes for you to complete the harvest and how much quality is lost during

harvest. Work on swath management shows how much quality loss occurs during harvest is affected by HOW you harvest hay crop silage. The plant continues to respire during the wilting and drying process of cut forages. This respiration process consumes plant sugars (energy) in plant cells and produces oxygen and water. The

Hay in a day In recent years, the adoption of incorporating a wide cutting swath in forage harvest to speed up the dry down process has been increasing on farms across the United States. The earliest use of this “hay in a day” concept was probably back in the day of sickle bars, where the entire cutting width was laid out behind the mower. As mower designs changed and width increased, the

longer it takes forages to dry to the ideal moisture content for chopping, the longer the forage is respiring in the field. Respiration of these cells continues until the plant is fermented as a haylage crop or dried suffi-

ciently as a hay crop. In addition to energy losses, dry matter losses can be significant. How producers manage their hay swath can greatly affect the time of haylage harvest. Wide swath management allows forages

to dry more rapidly and shortens the time from cutting to harvest to minimize this post harvest respiration period. The drying rate of hay crops is influenced the most by sunlight reaching the forages, which in

turn increases the swath temperature and reduces humidity. A full width swath increases the drying surface of the swath by 2.8 times. In many trials, it has been shown that moisture reductions from 85 percent to 60 percent can be reached in as little as 5 to 7 hours, hence the term “Haylage in a Day”. The bottom line is that the forage produced with minimal respiration results in higher nutrient content of the forage. Think about laundry drying. A dense pile of laundry does not dry and neither does a narrow

swath of haylage. The rate of water loss is dependant on the amount of the laundry or forage that intercepts sunlight. The greater the amount of surface area exposed to sunlight, the greater the affect on the drying rate. This affect is even greater than conditioning or turning the mowed swath. Another factor found to affect drying rate for haylage is to not condition the crop. Conditioning crimps plant stems and disrupts the “plumbing” system of the plant. If left intact the plant plumbing system

will function until whole plant moistures drop to approximately 60 to 65 percent, the ideal moisture for haylage. Conditioning is important for making dry hay, as the crimping allows additional moisture to leave the stems at moistures below 60 percent. Clearly the management of a forage swath can have a huge impact on the rate of drying. Open your hay harvesting equipment to get maximum sunlight interception and “Hay in a Day”.

NNY farms successfully growing cover crops in on-farm trials Farmers in northern New York and a Cornell University research team are evaluating the value of planting winter cereal crops, such as triticale, wheat and cereal rye, as cover crops for spring harvest as a forage for dairy cows. The farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program funded two years of cover crop trials on 11 North Country dairy farms in 2011-2012. Eight NNY farms are participating in 2013 trials to learn how much nitrogen is needed at crop greenup to grow the winter cereal crops as cover crops for harvest in May as forage for dairy cows. When the grains are grown as cover crops that are also harvested for forage, they can increase annual per-acre crop yields. The cover crops also help protect water quality, reduce soil erosion, conserve plant nutrients, and improve soil quality. The research focus has included the amount of nitrogen (N) taken up by the cover crop seeded after corn silage harvest, the amount of N that can be credited for use by the spring-planted crop after the cover crop is harvested or plowed into the soil, and the yield and forage quality that can be expected from harvesting the cover crop. At McKnight’s River Breeze Farm in Waddington, NY, Travis McKnight successfully

harvested triticale planted as late as early October in the northern NY climate. He plants in well-drained or tiled fields that are in secondfourth year corn. Yields at Mapleview Dairy in Madrid, NY, were excellent in 2011 and 2012, but the trial this past winter showed that without snow cover triticale can winterkill with prolonged periods of exposure to low temperatures. Trials on these St. Lawrence County farms show the potential for cover crops to provide excellent yields of high quality forage. The trials also demonstrate that attention to recommended crop management practices, such as seed bed preparation, is critical to success. More information on this cover crop research is on the Cornell Nutrient Management Spear website at http://nmsp.cals.cornell.edu. Detailed results for this Cover Crops in Corn Silage Systems in Northern New York: Can Farms Conserve Nitrogen Fertilizer and Safe Money by Using Cover Crops? project and other crop research are posted at www.nnyagdev.org. The Northern New York Agricultural Development Program provides practical, on-farm research, technical assistance, and outreach to farmers in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

How much will heat stress cost you this summer? Take steps to mitigate the financial impact heat stress could have on your operation this summer.

SHOREVIEW, MN — Heat stress is expensive. It is estimated that heat stress costs the dairy industry anywhere from $900 million to $5 billion each year depending upon the calculation used. The level of stress experienced by an animal and resulting financial losses fluctuate as temperature and humidity go up and down. “Regardless of which figure you use, money goes down the drain each year as a result of heat stress,” says Dr. Jamie Jarrett, dairy nutritionist with Purina Animal Nutrition LLC. “But when we talk in numbers that big, sometimes it can be hard to relate that to what’s actually happening at the individual farm level.” To help dairy producers understand what the

impact heat stress is having on specific operations, Jarrett shares that heat stress can cause a farm to lose 10 to 35 percent of an animal’s current milk production. A cow producing 100 pounds of milk in thermal neutral conditions could drop to 90 pounds of milk for a 10 percent loss or 65 pounds of milk for a 35 percent loss. Consider if the milk price is $16 per hundredweight, the reduction to 90 pounds of milk equates to a loss of $1.60 per cow per day. The reduction to 65 pounds per day of milk equates to a loss of $5.60 per cow per day. Take this example across a herd of 500 cows, they are looking at a loss of anywhere from $800 to $2,800 per day. Knowing that heat

stress does not typically happen for one day only, consider if a cow suffered heat stress for a period of 45 days; the losses for a 500 cow herd grow to $36,000 to $126,000. If the herd is milking 1,000 cows the losses become even more significant ranging from $72,000 to $252,000. These numbers don’t take into account reproduction losses and extended days open. “When we put financials behind these percentages the losses an individual operation is facing start to become very real,” says Jarrett. Jarrett reminds that at 72 degrees most people are comfortable, but that is the breaking point for adverse effects depending upon the humidity level. “We need to change our mindset in how we

think about heat stress” To combat the financial impact of heat stress Jarrett advises that producers consider the following management strategies: • Invest in shade, fans and sprinklers for both the lactating herd and dry cows, most specifically close-up cows. “Research shows the financial benefits of cooling both groups of cows,” she says. • Take steps to keep the holding pen cool. Research shows that cooling a cow’s body temperature by 3 degrees F resulted in an increase of 1.75 pounds of milk per cow per day. • Provide plenty of water. “Cows drink more than you may think in warmer weather. Make sure that water is not a limiting factor on your operation,” says Jarrett.

• Choose a highly palatable energy source. Because intake levels are reduced, it’s very important to feed a concentrated source of energy that is very palatable and appealing to the cow. • Double check your trace mineral and macro mineral levels. The level of trace minerals and macro minerals in the diet may need to be elevated. Macro minerals

can help cows cope with heat stress. • Keep an eye on potassium levels. During warm weather cows lose potassium through sweat • Raise dietary cation anion difference or DCAD levels to account for warmer weather.

by Libby Gaige Over the past 50 years or so, many dairy farms have undergone significant growth. Farms that used to employ a workforce of only a handful of people with the same last name now look outside their families for additional workers. In the long run, this equates to fewer hours spent working directly with cows and equipment and more hours spent managing the people who work with the cows and equipment. Unfortunately, that’s not always as easy as it sounds; many farm managers have found that their cow skills don’t always translate to people skills. You may have no-

ticed that the approach you use with your bovines doesn’t work as well with your humans. What language do cows speak? English? Spanish? Chinese? When I’ve posed this question during animal handling trainings, the response I often get is “all of the above!” It’s true, cows seem to respond to people in the same manner no matter what language they speak, and will listen without judgment to anything you have to say. Whether you realize it or not, you communicate with your cows using body language more than speech. And while your people surely do pay attention to body

language, the words you use and especially the way you say them are more important than you may have realized. What’s more, your employees want you to talk to them. When I translate for a meeting between English-speaking managers and Spanishspeaking employees, frequently the first question that the employees will have for their boss is “How am I doing?” Though the boss may have just finished going through a list of things that have been done well and some that need improvement employees crave one-on-one contact and constructive feedback — positive or negative — from their

boss. Some managers do a good job of addressing this question, if not on a day-to-day basis, then at least when they have a translator available. As the growing season gets going, many managers spend more time by themselves on a tractor and less time on the ground working with employees. Don’t forget to make time to communicate with your team! While you certainly won’t have the time for one-on one interaction like you do during less busy times of the year, setting aside time at the beginning of the month may make it a bit easier to follow through. Since you know it’s harder to fit in the time, be cre-

ative: send out a group text message, hold a quick meeting over coffee in the break room, or write a note to a group of employees who deserve congratulations on a job well done. Employees tend to become disgruntled when they don’t know what’s going on, so making the effort to keep them up-to-date on farm happenings and providing them with feedback on their performance can keep everyone happier in the long run.

Past, present and future Susquehanna County Dairy Princesses present pageant Submitted by Evie Goff Mercedes Spickerman, daughter of Elizabeth and Kevin Spickerman is the new Susquehanna County Dairy Princess. She had served the previous two years as a dairy ambassador and was joined at the pageant on May 24 by former dairy princesses, Allison Kiefer, Shana Mack, Daisy Matulevich, Abbey Puzo, Amanda Zembrzycki Burns and the current state dairy promotion team members State Princess Maria Jo Noble and Alternate Heather Wasson. Also joining the princesses was Betty Reibson, Northeast District Dairy Princess and Promotion coordinator and Jessica Armacost, PDPPS director. Outgoing Susquehanna County Dairy Princess Callie Curley crowned Mercedes Princess. Chelsea Empet, daughter of Rick and Dana Empet of Kingsley acted as crown bearer. I’m sure you will find Chelsea joining the dairy promotion team as soon as she gets a bit older. Although Mercedes does not live on a dairy farm she has great respect for dairy farmers and wishes to spend the year ahead promoting the dairy industry in Susquehanna County. One of her goals is to visit school children in each of the school districts around the County. She will also work with outgoing dairy princess and State First Alternate Callie Curley as well as the four dairy maids planning several new competitive events promoting dairy that will take place this summer at the Harford Fair on Aug. 21. Joining Mercedes on the county dairy court are Dairy Maids Emory Bewley from Jackson, Samantha Warner, Montrose; Reese Allen, New Milford; and Alexis Parks from Susquehanna. Allison Kiefer, who served as the county’s dairy princess 20112012, welcomed everyone to pageant, Daisy Matulevich, 2009-2010 dairy princess, introduced each of the dairy court members as their

dads ushered them to take their place on stage. The invocation was given by Betty Reibson as well as leading everyone in the flag salute. The four dairy maids each stepped forward making comments about their relationship to dairy and spoke a bit about how they will be fulfill their responsibilities as dairy maids as they begin a new year of dairy promotion. Dairy Ambassadors Mariah Tompkins and Madeline Mitchell each completed a year of dairy promotion work but were unable to attend the Pageant event. The entire Pennsylvania State Dairy Promotion Team, Maria Jo Noble, Callie Curley and Heather Wasson made brief comments on some of their experiences serving as members of the state team.

by Miranda Reiman N/A. It’s that option in a multiple choice survey or sign-up sheet that stands for “not applicable.” It’s something that often crosses my mind when I see a news headline about a far-off city facing an economic crisis or promoting a study on the benefits of eating brussels sprouts. (Sorry to any of you growers. It doesn’t matter how good they are for me,

that’s a taste I just can’t seem to acquire.) I also hear that “N/A” attitude among cattlemen when it comes to grid marketing. At first glance, that makes sense. Perhaps you’re a farmer-feeder selling cattle via pickup and trailer at the local auction barn and topping that market. You may have no chance or desire to get involved in other forms of market-

Substitute vs. supplement: Tips to make the most of your summer pasture Managing a pasture through the summer requires planning. A managed pasture can help keep cows in proper body condition and prevent summer lulls in pasture performance. That’s according to Chad Zehnder, cattle consultant for Purina Animal Nutrition. He says that managed pastures can typically support the cow-calf herd from summer and into fall unless environmental conditions cause problems. A pasture management plan should include supplementation and substitution, when necessary. Selecting when to supplement pastures or when to substitute pastures with an additional feed source can impact pasture longevity and herd health. Supplementation Supplementing a pasture with protein and mineral can complement the forages provided in the pasture through the grazing season. “In a normal year, we hope to manage our pastures so we have ample forage for the cows,” Zehnder said. “Supple-

menting the pasture with protein can help maximize forage utilization and potentially forage intake.” Forage growth changes throughout the summer based on plant life cycles, regions and environmental conditions; a supplement program can help fill seasonal voids as cows consume the supplement as needed. A protein and mineral supplementation program promotes feed intake and utilization. Supplementation programs can impact body condition scores, calf weaning weights and reproductive performance. Substitution After creating a supplementation plan, producers should monitor pastures for forage variations throughout the summer. If slow pasture growth occurs, adjusted stocking density or the addition of stored forage can relieve pressure on the pasture. “If forage is getting low in the pasture, make a switch before the problem is out of hand and the pasture is burnt up,” Zehnder advises, explain-

ing that a pasture break will allow it to regrow after periods of overgrazing or dry weather. Pasture substitution, or complementing the pasture with stored forage, is an option to ensure the herd receives the nutrients required when pasture quality becomes low. During periods of pasture stress, stored forages can be fed to the herd. Zehnder says that substitution was an option used by cattle producers during the 2012 drought, but that it is not necessary until winter in most years. “Substitution may be necessary in dry areas in the summer, but, most years, pasture supplementation during the summer and fall is ideal,” he says, encouraging producers to work with a cattle nutritionist to create a pasture management and supplementation program.

a scholarship award provided by the county dairy promotion committee. Callie gave her farewell speech complementing the members of her court on the excellent job they did working with her during the past year and mentioning special memories she will carry with her about each of

Still, how is that applicable to you? It means that the entire industry is really starting to see that cattle are diverse in their ultimate beef value, and they should be valued accordingly, on individual merit. When a feeder gets a cash bid, the cattle buyer is mentally placing those animals on a grid. He bases how much he can pay on the range of what he thinks they’ll do compared to the plant averages for quality and yield grade. Every head that runs through the salebarn is quickly evaluated for how well they’ll likely do in that same situation. In all the cash sales, there’s more guessing involved as to the range and degree of uniformity. Feeders know this.

When they buy calves into the yard, they’re doing the same thing. They may have a breakeven price in mind, but then they have an idea which ones they can grid and hopefully recoup some value above their lesserquality counterparts. Bottom line: They’ll pay up for the better cattle, if they can feel sure it’s worth the gamble. Finished cattle all used to be sold at virtually the same price each week. They were a commodity. That’s changing. Now producers who pay extra attention to genetics, handling, nutrition and health can actually get paid for doing what some of their neighbors chose not to do. It wasn’t that way several decades ago. It doesn’t matter if

they’re sold at auction or direct, value differentiations are getting wider. Often we hear about the lag time it takes after any decision made, to see the results in the beef industry. The genetics you’re selecting today will be scrutinized years down the road. The steady upward march of this grid marketing trend leads me to believe it has become so well established that it’s the new normal. The bulls you buy today will make calves and replacements sold into a market that is increasingly concerned with how the cattle do beyond just weight. That’s a good thing to keep in mind as you consider the effect grid marketing has on your program.

ing. If you’re a cow-calf producer who sells cattle at weaning, with little or no feedback on how they do after weaning, you likely have little interest in grid formulas or what’s going on with negotiated sales. However, regardless of your level of participation in it, this beef industry marketing trend has caught on in a big way and it affects you. Just seven years ago, grid sales and other arrangements made up half of the fed cattle marketings, with live cash sales making up the other half. Today, nearly three-quarters of all finished cattle are sold on some sort of grid or negotiated basis.

Grange presents first William Saunders Award for Rural Awareness to RAM during luncheon WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Grange President Edward L. Luttrell on June 3 presented RAM the first William Saunders Award for Rural Awareness for their Super Bowl Commercial, “God Made a Farmer.” “This commercial was not about RAM, but about the way RAM validated and honored the values of farmers and farm families,” Luttrell said before presenting the award to Carlos Jimenez, Director of Chrysler’s Mid-Atlantic Business Center. “It made a nation pause and reflect on the work that goes into feeding America and much of the world and started a conversation in small towns and large urban centers.” Jimenez accepted the award and spoke to a crowd of about 30 Grange leaders gathered for the annual National Grange Fly-In, held to encourage members of the 145year-old organization to speak directly to their elected officials about issues of importance to rural Americans and the agriculture sector. “Farmers are the embodiment of what the RAM brand stands for humble but confident,” Jimenez said during his presentation. Jimenez said one major goal of RAM when creating this campaign was to “raise the awareness of urbanites about agriculture and what farm communities do on a daily basis.” “This commercial sharply elevated the imagery urbanites have of the farming community,” Jimenez said. “We are truly proud to be the recipient of this first William Saunders Award for Rural Awareness. There is an entire floor of RAM thrilled to be honored in this way.” RAM had a goal of raising $1 million in YouTube views of the commercial for FFA to support Feeding the World - Starting at Home Campaign, Jimenez said. Within a week, he said, they had met that goal. Jimenez talked about the other steps RAM is taking to support FFA,

including the release of a coffee table picture book with about 200 pictures shot as part of the 2013 Year of the Farmer campaign in which 10 photographers

were hired and spent 25 days taking more than 4,000 images that were reduced to the 35 shown in the commercial. Proceeds from the book will go to a soon-to-be-an-

nounced FFA program, Jimenez said. The Fly-In began Sunday evening with a briefing by Joel White, President of Council for Affordable Health Care

Coverage, on the status of the Affordable Care Act and ran through Tuesday. Democratic Representative and Ranking Member of the House Agriculture

Committee Collin Peterson also spoke to attendees about the status of the Farm Bill and expected developments in a Republican-controlled House.

This certainly isn’t news to many of you but all too often I see farmers starting to cut grass hay around Memorial Day. During May there are a lot of important jobs to do; tillage, planting corn and soybeans, spraying and more. I understand, depending on the use or market for your hay it doesn’t all need to be perfect, but your goal should be to try and have at least good quality hay to feed

your livestock or sell to your customers. Unless you have the ability to harvest all of your hay acres in a few days you will need to start a week or two ahead of when you would ideally like to make all of your hay so you can finish first cutting before the 4th of July. You will find the quality of that early hay far surpasses the hay that is made after the crop has gone to seed. The regrowth of the early

cut grass hay is significant which will allow for a second cutting prior to the grass slowing down in the heat of the summer. There has been an increased adoption of haylage/baleage in the past decade. Making first cutting as haylage instead of dry hay allowed farmers to bale within 24 hours of mowing. This is often the difference in getting hay harvested or not when there

are those days where there are only two days of sunshine between rain showers. When wrapping hay in plastic to make silage, remember that hay quality is determined by the quality of the forage going into the bale. If hay is cut late, the silage will be of poor quality. Ensiling may make the haylage smell good, but it does not improve crude protein content or dry

matter digestibility. If you are harvesting established alfalfa stands the first cutting in the spring can be made when the crop is in the bud to early-bloom stage. During the spring there is generally limited environmental stress and the alfalfa crop can normally tolerate early cutting. Harvesting at the bud stage has allowed producers to get more cuttings per year,

increase their production, and improve the quality of their forage. However, in order to cut this early, there should be optimum levels of soil pH, phosphorus, and potassium, and plants should be allowed to reach the first-bloom stage at least once during the year. Source: Penn State Extension

and night feedings after classes. Miedema plans to return full-time to the family business upon graduating from college. The 2013 Duck Derby will be held in conjunction with the 13th annual Dairy Day celebration on June 15 at the Chenango County Fairgrounds. Starting at 12:30, the Duck Derby will send ducks that have been purchased for $5 each by community members from the East Main Street Bridge near the fairgrounds to the finish line, also on the fairgrounds. The first duck to reach the finish line will earn the purchaser a cash prize of $100, with second and third place ducks earning $50 and $25 respectively. All proceeds from

the sale of ducks will go towards the scholarship. An ice cream social to celebrate will be held immediately following. Sponsorship for the Duck Derby has been provided by The New Berlin Rotary, Morrisville Fresh program (The Agricultural Business Program at Morrisville State College), Marshman Farms, and the Oxford FFA. Ducks can be purchased at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chenango County offices in Norwich, the Norwich campus of Morrisville State College, and Canal Street Hardware in Oxford. The Duck Derby is just one of several fun activities being planned for the 13th annual Chenango County Dairy Day being held on Saturday, June 15, from

10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the fairgrounds. A parade, educational exhibits, free dairy products, a stock tank race, games and activities for the kids, animals, dancers and music will all add to the fun and excitement of this free, family activity!

Madison FFA visits Ireland and Scotland Eleven students and five adults from the Madison FFA traveled to Ireland and Scotland on a non-school sponsored trip over spring break in April. The trip began in Dublin, Ireland, where they toured the Irish National Stud farm and Japanese gardens. Ireland is the third largest breeder of thoroughbreds in the world. The stud currently has eight stallions ranging in stud fees from $1,000 to $85,000 (Invincible Spirit). While in Dublin the group saw Trinity College, Grafton Street, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, O’Connell St., Georgian Squares, and Phoenix Park. The group then traveled to Belfast in Northern Ireland where they toured the Titanic Museum. The museum states, “Built by an Irishman, sunk by an Englishman.” Freshman, Shelby Coon’s favorite part of the trip was learning and experiencing the various cultures and eating their food. Senior, Taylor Best, and Junior Megan Rockhill’s favorite part of the trip was the Ferry Ride to Scotland. On day five the ferry took the group to Stranraer, Scotland, where they visited the Robert Burns Cottage. The Ayrshire ploughman, who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s best known poets, Robert Burns has become an international icon. The Stirling Castle and Edinburgh Castle were both icons of the country. They climbed the William Wallace Monument which is better known by Mel Gibson in Braveheart. Junior, Heather Staelens, enjoyed the sights of the castles and has a much better understanding as to why they were built in the highest parts of the cities. Another highlight of our trip and favorite part for junior, James Dixon was the travel from the lowlands to the Highlands of Scotland. In the highlands there was a sheep dog demonstration at the Fiber exhibition. Also in the Highlands we were able to visit “Hamish” the Highland coo; he was a Scottish Highlander who was 20 years old. Favorite activity for juniors, Dakota

Bridge, Andrew Bikowsky and freshman Brady Klein, was mountain biking through the Trossachs, in the Highlands and at Loch Katrine, they biked 9.5 miles. Conor Cleveland, Junior, also said being able to walk around Loch Katrine and enjoy the sights was his favorite part of the trip. While in the highlands the tour made a stop by the Stirling Agricultural Center where they were able to talk with the locals at a sheep auction. The local gentlemen helped students understand the lamb industry and what was happening. A favorite part of the trip to freshman, Makenna Bridge was the Loch Ness. Loch Ness is a large, deep, freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands extending southwest of Inverness. Its surface is 15.8 m (52 ft) above sea level. Loch Ness is best known for the alleged sightings of the cryptozoological Loch Ness Monster, also known affectionately as “Nessie”. Nessie is said to be many different structures whether it’s horse, white stag, sticks or even just heat traveling across the water. Scotland was known for many of its hydro-power facilities as they were lacking resources; wood in Scotland is not existent. The local whiskey distillery was giving their waste product to local dairies, and to the University of Endinburg to test for a renewable energy source. This trip was incredible and certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity for 11 high school students. This fast paced trip was only a snapshot of different cultures. Advisor, Miss Julia Hudyncia’s favorite part of the trip was giving students the opportunity to see other parts of the world, and watching them light up at various points in the trip. The group would like to thank the chaperones and friends for their support and encouragement of the trip. Without the fantastic supporters of Madison FFA this wouldn’t have been a success. Thank you!

4-Hers participate in Regional Horse events 4-H Horse Educational Events consist of Horse Bowl and Hippology which are designed to demonstrate their knowledge of equine science. Horse Bowl is similar to a game show where teams of youth respond to questions using buzzers. Hippology is a

skillathon where youth rotate to different stations identifying equipment or labeling body parts of a horse as well as other horse related information. Representing Washington County were Lindsey Lankford and Sydney Wilhelm; they served on a novice team.

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.

munities become more self-reliant in providing basics like food and fiber.” Groundswell is especially focused on engaging people of color, immigrants, refugees, and those with limited financial resources in this movement. “We’re building a multi-cultural support network for beginning farmers, market gardeners, homesteaders, and other entrepreneurs in the food system,” says Green. “We need to create resilient, regional systems that meet everyone’s need for good food and economic

opportunity.” Groundswell courses are taught by experienced local farmers, and provide hands-on training in organic food production. Although the workshops focus on what it takes to be successful on a small-scale commercial basis, the same skills and knowledge also apply to the non-commercial “homestead” farm. Groundswell has openings in the following upcoming class: Understanding and Managing Soils Groundswell’s two-part

Soils class provides a foundational understanding of the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil, and strategies for managing soils for maximum biological activity. Taught by Barb Neal, Certified Arborist, Green Legacy Tree Consultants and Paul Martin, Farmer, Sweet Land Farm, the course combines classroom training with hands-on training at the Groundswell Incubator Farm. The Soils course includes two sessions, 5-8 p.m. on Wednesdays, June 12 and 19. The cost is $90

for both sessions. To register call 607-319-5095 or send email to: info@ groundswellcenter.org And much more Other upcoming workshops include a whole series on Organic Vegetable Production, Grazing Basics, Grass-Fed Sheep, Pastured Poultry Basics, Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Pigs. Tuition assistance is available for those with limited resources. For more information visit www.groundswellcenter.org or call 607-3195095, or send an email toinfo@groundswellcenter.org.


WASHINGTON D.C. — Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the following statement about notification received recently from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) upgrading the United States’ risk classification for bovine spongiform

encephalopathy (BSE) to negligible risk: “I am very pleased with OIE’s decision to grant the United States negligible risk status for BSE. This is a significant achievement that has been many years in the making for the United

States, American beef producers and businesses, and federal and state partners who work together to maintain a system of interlocking safeguards against BSE that protect our public and animal health. This decision demonstrates

OIE’s belief that both our surveillance for, and safeguards against, BSE are strong. U.S. beef and beef products are of the highest quality, wholesome and produced to the highest safety standards in the world. “Last year, exports of U.S.-origin beef and beef

products totaled $5.5 billion. With our negligible risk classification from the OIE, we have a strong foundation in place to continue increasing exports of U.S.origin beef and beef products. In doing so, we will continue to press trading partners to base

covered in England in 1971. Since then, the disease has been identified in a number of European countries and Canada, and most recently in China, Korea and Japan. PEDV only affects pigs and is not zoonotic. Therefore, it poses no risk to other animals, humans or food safety. It is similar to transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) and is transmitted through the fecal-oral route with

acute diarrhea symptoms within 12 to 36 hours of onset. Producers are advised to immediately report any signs of illness in their pigs to their herd veterinarian. “We are monitoring this disease and will make recommendations to producers as necessary,” Becton said.

Equine Safety: Defensive Horse Safety by Erin Madden, The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health-NYCAMH In recent years, horses have become more common on farms and in rural areas. The number of horse related injuries has increased dramatically as well. Youth under 15 years of age account for one in five horse related emergency department visits in the United States. There are some safety measures that should be taken into consideration by horse owners in order to keep themselves, their family members and the horse safe. Some safety tips to remember when working with a horse include: • Remember, safety first! A lifetime of enjoyment for both you and your horse can be ruined by just a moment of

carelessness. • Keep equipment on the horse properly fastened. An unbuckled noseband or throat latch can seriously damage the horse’s eye if it shakes its head. • Never tie a horse up by the reins. If the horse pulls back it can damage its mouth or break the reins. • When tying a horse, always use a sturdy halter and lead rope tied with a quick release knot. The tie knot should be at the horse’s eye level so the horse can’t get much leverage if it pulls back when tied. • Turn horses out into new areas when there are plenty of daylight hours for the horse to explore its new surroundings and find the fence line. • Walk horses around the perimeter of a new area before turning them loose. • Gradually introduce new horses into an es-

tablished herd. • Be careful when separating horses that are used to being together so they don’t injure themselves trying to get back together. • Never turn the horse out or leave it in the stall with a halter on. The horse could catch its halter on something and injure itself. • Always have a halter and lead for each horse within easy reach of the stall or the pasture. This way you can move horses out quickly in the event of an emergency. • Let your neighbors know how to reach you in case of an emergency. Injuries are often caused by falls from the horse, the horse falling on you, or getting kicked or stepped on. Common injuries from horses include broken bones, bruises, sprains and strains, internal injuries and concussions. By being aware of the horse and following the basic safety tips you can fully enjoy time with your horse. Remember • Never approach a horse from directly be-

Safety B17

& Accessibility Stung by safety The sting or bite of some flying insects, spiders, fire ants, and snakes is poisonous. The sting or bite pumps venom into the body, much like a doctor’s shot, except that a bite damages, not heals, the body. Stinging insects include bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets. Although wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets look nasty, bees are far more dangerous. Bee stings contain more venom than the other insects and bees are more likely to sting. A person is 42 times more likely to die from a bee sting than a poisonous snake bite. Usually bee stings only cause death if the person

is stung repeatedly in a short time, or the person is allergic to the venom. Two poisonous spiders live in the United States – the black widow, identified by a red hourglass on its abdomen, and the brown recluse, which has a “violin” on its back. Both types of poisonous spiders are reluctant to bite, and the amount of venom in each bite varies. However, the venom produced by these spiders is very powerful and can be deadly. Snakes are the most famous poisonous creatures. About 7,000 to 10,000 people are bitten every year by poisonous snakes, but only 12 to 15 people die from the bite.

Most poisonous snake bites in the United States are from rattlesnakes, copperheads, and water moccasins (also known as cotton mouth). They are found in every state except Alaska and Hawaii. Poisonous snakes usually only bite when they are handled or stepped on. But once a person is bitten, it is a true medical emergency. Source: Iowa State University Extension and Outreach


BOSTON, MA — Agricultural companies are

invited to participate in key surveys to help round

out the research data for the first-ever comprehen-

Country Folks, in partnership with National AgrAbility, Goodwill of Rochester, Progressive Ag Foundation and the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH), will sponsor a Farm Safety & Accessibility Area as part of this summer's Empire Farm Days, August 6-8, 2013 at Rodman Lott Farm in Seneca Falls, New York. We are seeking show participants interested in sharing their disability experiences, exhibiting or demonstrating AT products or technology, facilitating safety workshops, or taking part in educational roundtable discussions that will help focus attention on farm safety, and create a unique and beneficial show experience exclusively for the Upstate New York agricultural community. If you'd like to be part of this exciting inaugural event, and take advantage of the valuable sales, promotional and public relations opportunities it offers, please contact Bruce Button, General Manager, at 518-673-0104 or email bbutton@leepub.com. Empire Farm Days August 6-8, 2013 Rodman Lott Farm, Seneca Falls, NY Farm Safety & Accessibility Zone sponsored by:

sive study of women in agribusiness, which is being conducted by HighQuest Partners, a global agricultural events and conference firm. The study, “The Changing Demographics and Experience of Women in Agribusiness,” seeks to examine the current representation of women in North American agribusiness, their experience in agribusiness, and the most effective strategies for recruiting, retaining and enabling women to thrive and advance within agribusiness. Currently study participants are needed in two ways: • The first is an opportunity for human resources professionals (male or female) to answer a confidential, 20minute survey about the demographics of women in their company (find the survey at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/WIA Study). Participants of this survey are eligible to receive a summary of the findings.

• The second is a chance for women in agribusiness positions across the value chain to take a similar length, confidential survey to convey their individual perspectives, experiences and attitudes about working in the industry (find the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FYHPPPC). “We are well on our way to analyzing the current situation of women in agribusiness in North America for the benefit of our industry as a whole, but we need additional industry input to complete the study,” said Joy O’Shaughnessy, director of Women in Agribusiness Initiatives. “In our examination and compilation, the more companies we involve, the richer our results will be in supporting agribusiness companies in reaching their gender-inclusion goals. We are eager to provide up-to-date, cutting-edge knowledge and insight on this important topic.” Anticipated questions

that will be answered by the comprehensive study include: What proportion of women hold leadership positions? How does women’s representation in agribusiness compare to that of other business sectors? What is the experience of women in agribusiness and what challenges and concerns do women have? What are the most effective recruitment, retention, and professional advancement strategies for gender-inclusion at an individual, organizational, and industry level? Key findings of “The Changing Demographics and Experience of Women in Agribusiness” study will be presented at the company’s second annual Women in Agribusiness Summit (www.womeninag.com) in Minneapolis, MN, Oct. 22-24, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency. To learn more, visit http://goo.gl/byC79, or to take the survey over the phone or via .pdf file, contact Sarah Daysarah@soyatech.com.

• Understand a horse’s flight zone and use it to move them where you want them to go. • Facilities should be properly designed and maintained for safe animal handling. • Horses need good footing — keep walking areas free of ice and mud. If you would like more information about our

services or wish to schedule free on-farm safety training, please contact NYCAMH by calling 800-343-7527, or email erin.madden@bassett.org. NYCAMH, a program of Bassett Healthcare Network, is enhancing agricultural and rural health by preventing and treating occupational injury and illness.

Safety from B16 hind — talk softly and touch them gently as you approach. • Never stand directly behind a horse. If you are grooming its tail, stand to one side and pull the tail gently over. • Proper lighting in facilities is imperative — because of horses’ fight or flight instincts, horses can shy or kick out.

Applications are available for Angus Juniors to participate in The Scoop 2013 The project allows National Junior Angus Association members to gain real-world experience through the development of a publication for junior members, by junior members. The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) and Angus Foundation are pleased to again provide NJAA members who have completed the ninth grade with an opportunity to gain experience in the areas of communication, business, writing and photography. This year marks the sixth year for The Scoop, an annual electronic publication produced by NJAA members, who work as a team to create stories and artwork with the help of top communication professionals. In addition to gaining experience, The Scoop provides networking opportunities between other juniors and industry leaders. After participating on The Scoop staff, hopefully junior members will be prepared to pursue majors and careers in photography, communications, marketing, advertising or public relations. Junior members who

participate in The Scoop often conduct interviews and write stories about events at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) or other topics in the beef industry. For those who prefer the artistic side of the publication, there are opportunities to assist with contributing photos or artwork, as well as assisting with the layout. The Scoop staff will meet at 2 p.m. Sunday through Thursday during the 2013 NJAS in Kansas City, MO, but the opportunity is also available to members who do not plan to attend the show. Robin Ruff, director of junior activities for the American Angus Association®, says if juniors have even the slightest interest in photography, communications, marketing, advertising or public relations, they should sign up for The Scoop experience and learn more about working in a real-world com-

munications setting. “Communication skills are vital in any profession, and The Scoop allows juniors to get hands-on experience and have their work published, whether that’s a written story, photo or artwork,” Ruff said. “Juniors are also able to learn more about the NJAA, interact closely with fellow junior staff members of a similar age and gain a greater grasp on the issues facing the beef industry.” The application is available online at www.njaa.info or www.angusfoundation.o rg. Applications should be postmarked by June 15, 2013, or sent electronically to Katie Allen, Angus Foundation Director of Marketing and Public Relations, at 3201 Frederick Ave., St. Joseph, MO 64506 or kallen@angusfoundation.org. Juniors who apply will be notified of their status on the staff prior to the NJAS.
