Government and Industry Day Luncheon reflects budget woes by Jon M. Casey If there was any doubt about what the topic of the day was going to be at the Ag Progress Days 2011 Government and Industry Day Luncheon Aug. 17 in Rock Springs, PA, it only took a moment to realize that the one thing that was on everyone’s mind were the cuts in the 201112 state budget. More importantly, the message that came through loud and clear was how the agricultural community is going to adjust to reduced funding. Since the national economic downturn has affected virtually everyone, the need for a state budget based upon reduced revenues has hit the agricultural community especially hard. Areas that have suffered most at the university level are research and cooperative extension activities, both experiencing reductions in manpower and programs statewide. According to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, his administration’s efforts to produce a budget that was fair and at the same time considerate of the needs of the state’s largest industry, was a challenging task. Just the same, he said that because of his commitment to agriculture, his administration, along with the work of the Pennsylvania Legislature, passed a budget before the deadline, for the first time in many years. “It’s easy to lose track of where we’ve come to,” Corbett said. “It also becomes too easy for government to lose track of everything that (farmers) do that goes into farming. That is why I appointed a Secretary of Agriculture (George Greig) who knows what it is like to be praying for rain or milking a cow early in the morning. “When we first came into office, we only had six weeks to craft a budget,” Corbett said. “It wasn’t an easy budget. You can’t spend more than you have. When you have a $4.2 billion deficit when you walk in the door, you know you have a problem. I want to see our state grow and I can’t think of any better place to start than with agriculture. Agriculture (and the development of) the Marcellus Shale
is going to grow jobs and is going to grow Pennsylvania. I want to see you create jobs. We in government do not create jobs.” Dr. Graham Spanier, Dean of Penn State University, continued the theme of fiscal conservation by saying PSU has worked diligently to help keep the outlook for Ag students “bright.” Citing USDA data suggesting that jobs in the ag sector and in renewable energy will be in demand in greater number than the number of qualified graduates coming from U.S. schools, he commended Bruce McPheron for his efforts as School of Agriculture Dean. Since his appointment two years ago, McPheron has encouraged the faculty to continue with the research agenda despite reduced funding. Just the same, the university has received grants to help offset the reductions in local and state tax collection. These grants are being used to explore areas like food safety, pollinator health, Marcellus Shale activities, stinkbug control and energy research. “Penn State’s Extension has provided homeowners, communities and others, the unbiased educational information regarding gas exploration (in the Marcellus regions),” he said. “Since Penn State began offering gas leasing workshops … 85,000 landowners in Pennsylvania have attended our workshops.” Spanier noted that in the past five years, this translates to an increase in lease values to Pennsylvania landowners of more than $250 million over offers the landowners had received before the workshops were presented. Dr. Bruce McPheron called attention to the strategic planning that Penn State’s Ag Department has been doing to assure students and industry that PSU graduates will meet the nation’s demand for trained workers. He said that Penn State leads the nation in this regard. “Declined productivity is the last thing we need,” he said, referring to the need to feed a world population that continues to grow at an alarming rate. He stressed the importance of continuing Ag research at the univer-

Quoting Stephen Naylor, a Christmas tree farmer and county commissioner, McPheron said, “Agricultural research and extension is our first line of defense.” McPheron went on to say that his staff has been preparing for the reduced funding that resulted from the loss of federal stimulus funds and lower revenues from the state. Despite these efforts, the department’s budget still has a $4.5 million shortfall, which will result in further cuts yet to be determined. In spite of staff reductions through voluntary retirements, there is still a need to reduce the payroll by as many as 70 to 100 jobs in the coming months. He said that this would result in the loss of a total of approximately 200 of the 800 positions under the college’s Ag Department structure. “Our desire is to maintain a presence throughout the state,” he said, referring to the cuts that will be nec-
essary in the cooperative extension program. “We intend to establish 20 administrative districts around the state that will handle the routine functions (of Extension}. This will allow us to reduce our administrative overhead and focus our scarce resources on educators who serve (a reduced number of) programs.” He concluded by saying that PSU is working to help eradicate the stinkbug that has infested the state and in like fashion, continued work is going on to prevent the demise of the honeybee population, a concern in recent years. With the continued increase in applications and enrollment at PSU, educators still have a bright outlook. “We received more than 120,000 applications for enrollment in this academic year,” he noted. “Our enrollments in agricultural majors have increased by 42 percent over the past five years. Students want to come to Penn State.”

by Chris Bickers One of the keys to successful wheat production in the 2011-12 will be to stay ahead of head scab, says Randy Weisz, North Carolina Extension small grains specialist. “Epidemics of Fusarium head blightcalled 'scab' — have become more common in our region,” he says. Wet and warm weather is the main factor determining whether there is a severe scab epidemic. “Scab can be a problem any year that we have rain and mild temperatures before or during ﬂowering, which usually occurs in late April or early May,” says Weisz. Resistant varieties are the best defense against scab. “Many varieties have moderate to good resistance to scab,” says Weisz. “Plant varieties rated MR for scab, and avoid varieties rated S for scab. If a susceptible variety is grown, make sure a good scab management plan is in place.” Other tactics to manage scab are to plant at least three varieties with different heading dates to avoid ﬂowering of all your wheat at the same time. And avoid planting very late. “Late planting means later ﬂowering in the spring, when warmer temperatures are more favorable for scab,” Weisz says.
More production tips Here are some other management recommendations from the N.C. Extension small grains team. They are based in part on tests conducted in North Carolina in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 growing seasons. Avoid spring freeze damage “Early heading varieties are the most likely to be damaged by late spring
freezes,” Weisz says. “Conversely, lateheading varieties are likely to avoid freeze damage.” To reduce the risk of freeze damage, plant no more than one early- or medium-early heading variety. At least one late-heading variety should be planted.
Fine tune your variety choices Variety selection can be optimized by matching variety characteristics to your region. Here are some examples: Central Piedmont The most common yield robbers in this area include spring freeze damage, barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV), and scab. Select varieties that are rated MR or R for BYDV and scab and rated as late heading to avoid spring freeze damage. Coastal Plains Powdery mildew, leaf rust, and soilborne mosaic virus are common pests in this region. Ideal wheat varieties should be high yielding and have resistance to all three of these diseases. Tidewater Hessian ﬂy, soilborne mosaic virus and scab have caused frequent yield loss in the Tidewater. Choose highyielding varieties with resistance to these pests. Your disease management plan should match your varieties. The most common fungal diseases in North Carolina are powdery mildew, leaf rust, Stagonospora nodorum blotch (SNB) and scab. Varieties rated MR or R to these diseases can go a long way to preventing yield losses. If you grow varieties rated MS or S to any of these diseases, be sure you have a disease
Top Tar Heel wheat producers of 2011-12 The champion wheat yield in North Carolina in the 2010-11 season was produced by Brian Moore of Rowan County. His entry into the N.C. Wheat Yield Contest yielded 139.2 bushels per are using the variety USG 3209. This entry was also the top yield in the Piedmont. The number two yield in the state was produced by Randy Edwards of Johnston County, who grew 131.9 bushels per acre using the variety USG 3555, and the number three yield was produced by Moore Farm, also of Rowan County, which grew 129.8 bushels per acre using the variety USG 3555. Yield winners were also recognized in the three major wheat regions of the state. They were: Piedmont Bryan Moore, Moore Farm and Cox Brothers Farm of
Union County, which produced 126.8 bushels per acre using the variety SS 8302. Coastal Plain Edwards, who also grew the second place yield of 122.5 bushels per acre using USG 3555, and Matt Sanderson of Johnson County, who grew 119.7 bushels per acre using the variety DG Shirley. Tidewater Laurence Chappell of Perquimans County grew the top yield of 126.4 bushels per acre using the variety DG Shirley, followed by Scattered Acres Farms of Beaufort County followed by 124.1 bushels per acre using the variety SS 8404. Third place was produced by Charles Gray and Sons of Pasquotank County, It produced 122.3 bushels per acre using the variety DG Shirley.
management plan in place to protect their yield potential. Powdery mildew, leaf rust and SNB The goal of managing these diseases is to keep the ﬂag leaf disease free. Scouting all ﬁelds for diseases is a good idea, but is especially important for varieties rated MS or S. Check these varieties in April and May. If powdery mildew covers to 10 percent of the upper leaf surfaces it is time to spray. If leaf rust is on 1-3 percent of the leaf area, or if SNB is approaching the upper leaves a fungicide should be applied. Head scab - If it is rainy during and after heading, check the scab risk forecast at www.wheatscab.psu.edu. If risk for your county is high, and your variety has high yield potential but is rated MS or S for scab, consider applying a special fungicide at ﬂowering. For more information go to www.smallgrains.ncsu.edu.
The tricky question of whether to plant saved seed Wheat specialists are reluctant to advise planting your wheat crop from saved seed. They can lead to thin stands and can spread weeds and diseases across your farm. But if you decide to get your seed from the bin anyway, here are some tips from the N.C. Extension Service to make the most from your crop: It pays to test Bin-run seed should be considered for planting only if it is free of weedseed contaminant and has a high germination rate. Contact your local Cooperative Extension Center for details on how to submit a seed sample for testing. You will get the basic seed quality information that will aid in planting decisions. Have a germination test run immediately after harvest to determine if the seed are worth saving and again before planting. Seed
quality can change dramatically during storage, so testing twice is always a good idea. This information can be valuable: When you plant farmersaved seed, crop insurance may be denied unless you can prove that a germination test was conducted and the seed was of good quality. Consider custom cleaning Saved seed that is cleaned by a custom conditioner will have fewer contaminants and damaged seed. When custom cleaned, seed can also be treated with an insecticide to help protect it from pest damage while in storage. All custom-cleaned seed should be tested for germination and purity before planting. Saved seed may be contaminated with diseases such as loose smut, SNB or head scab. If the seed was produced using no-till methods, the chances of SNB or scab contamination are increased. If loose smut, SNB or head scab were present in the field the small grain was harvested from, the grain should not be used for seed. Doing so would contaminate the new crop, resulting in reduced yield, lower test weight, and the potential need to apply a foliar fungicide. Treating saved seed with a low-cost fungicidal seed treatment (such as Dividend Extreme or Proceed) can reduce this risk. But it can't eliminate it. One last point: Stay within the law You should assume that all AgriProCoker, Pioneer and Southern States varieties currently marketed are patented, and planting saved seed of patented varieties is illegal. Most public and private wheat varieties sold and planted in North Carolina today have also been protected through the U.S. Plant Variety Protection Act. Under both the original and amended Act, it is an infringement to clean, bag or stock farmer-saved seed if the quantity exceeds what the farmer can legally save for planting purposes.

Barrel racers get down to business at NBHA Colonial National by Jennifer Showalter LEXINGTON, VA — When a thousandth of a second can mean the difference between a pay check or not, there is only one thing to do and that is to get down to business and make every second count. This is exactly what 500 and some National Barrel Horse Association (NBHA) members from the eastern half of the U.S. recently did at the NBHA Colonial National. With 2,192 runs over the course of the weekend, the Virginia Horse Center was the happening place. To go along with the fast horses and talented riders, competitors and visitors were treated with an impressive lineup of vendors. From tack, to clothing, to jewelry, to home décor, there most certainly was something there to catch everyone's eye. In addition to money being on the line, the riders ran their horses full speed in hopes of winning a variety of awards. The top four in the open, youth, and senior divisions were the recipients of these prizes. The first place winners were each awarded a Cactus trophy saddle, Gist trophy buckle, and a wild card invitation to the World Championships. The second place winners each were presented a Cactus portfolio and a wild card invitation to the World Championships. The third place winners each earned a

winners each walked away with an NBHA logo hat can. The excitement started on Thursday, Aug. 18 with 193 senior entries competing for a total of $5,011 in prize money. Leading the pack was Donald, better known as Ducky, Keller of Moneta, VA with a 15.177 second pattern on Perky Pacific. This was just the beginning of Keller's successful weekend. He also placed first in the 2nd division with a 15.752 second pattern on Bonnie's Secret. Roy Stiltner of Argillite, KY stood first in the third division with a 16.199 second pattern on Flits Fancy Darlene. Golonda Howard of Trenton, NC timed it just right for first in the fourth division with a 17.211 second run on Thunder. Friday and Saturday were both tied up with 775 entries running each day for a total of $23,813 in prize money. In the first go of the open division, Diron Clements of Danville, VA tied with Shelby Hester of Winston-Salem, NC with a 15.102 second run. Kate Morgan of Reva, VA topped the second division with a 15.617 pattern, while Bradley Taylor of Fremont, NC topped the third division with a 16.109 second pattern. Jeff Bentley of Greenup, KY stopped the clock at 17.103, just in time for first in the fourth division. The second go of the open division was basically a repeat of the first go, but in reverse order. Carol Kerstetter of Milton, PA made her way to the pay window with a 15.103 second run, which was good enough for first in the first division. Loren Altman of Kittanning, PA topped the second division with a 15.603 second pattern. Tying for first in the third division with a 16.103 second pattern was Kelly Smarr of Elisabeth, WV and Jo Lynn Farmer of King William, VA. Sarah Helmick of Webster Springs, WV fell into first place in the fourth division when she crossed the timer at 17.107 seconds. With $31,750 dollars on the line in the open finals, the 161 entries only had one speed in mind and that was wide open! No stranger to the winner circle, Keller and his horse, Perky Pacific, made their way back to the top in the first division with a 14.920 second pattern. Rachel Harper of
Hermatage, PA crossed the finish line in 15.432 seconds and moved into first place in the second division. Jennifer Devillez of Canterbury, CT fell into first in the third division with a time of 15.949 seconds, while Deborah Graley of Clear Creek, WV cleaned up the fourth division with a time of 16.985 seconds. The youth exhibitors did not let their lack of experience slow them down any. These 19-year old and younger riders were able to compete in the open division, but in their own youth division there were 268 entries alone competing for $5,655. Elizabeth Caldwell left a cloud of dust in the arena and won the first division as she crossed the timer at 14.938 seconds on her horse, BF Shenanigan. Thomas Hadfield, of Yorklyn, DE finished first in the second division with a 15.461 second run, while Riley Sheppard of Creston, OH claimed top honors in the third division with a 15.945 second pattern. Jenna Stapp, of Wyckoff, CT, claimed the fourth division when she stopped the clock at 16.942 seconds. It is not often that one person wins two or more divisions, but Keller had a weekend he will remember. Sweeping both the senior and open final divisions on Perky Pacific, a seven year old horse he owns with Darryl Felts, was more than rewarding. The horse was lame the week before the show and Keller decided he was not going to bring her. She was sore after competing in the NBHA Youth World Championships, until Keller's vet came and did some magic a few days before the NBHA Colonial. “It's unbelievable what can happen when you do a lot of praying,” said Keller. Keller normally has around 20 horses in training at Broken Bow Arena in Bedford, VA. In addition to training speed event horses, he gives lessons. This year six or seven of the horses Keller has in his barn placed in the first division of the open round at the Colonial National. Keller travels across the country to barrel races and has developed quite an admirable reputation that he was able to live up to at the 2011 NBHA Colonial. For more information on NBHA, visit www.

The impact of $2 plus cheese is beginning at the retail level, reports Jerry Dryer’s Dairy and Food Market Analyst, and orders from international buyers have slowed dramatically. But he adds that several Upper Midwest manufacturers have told him they are unable to fill all of their orders. “The domestic foodservice business seems to be doing well as supported by same-store sales data,” Dryer wrote, and “These cheese companies are also faced with a reduction in their milk supply; a situation that is prevalent throughout the Eastern two-thirds of

The NDE mixer will cut and mix long stem fiber in an even, consistent ration. They are built with quality components, simple to maintain, while mixing fast and efficiently with NO dead spots. They really do work! Why buy any other mixer? Blacksburg, VA. Beef Producer, Bill Mc Donald of McDonald Farms (Circa 1763) is shown with his 4yr. old NDE 804 Vertical Mixer. Bill is a breeder of Black Simmental and Black Angus seedstock with the herd currently split 2/3 Black Simmental & 1/3 Black Angus. Having previously utilized a feed wagon and a bale bed on his truck to feed, Bill was looking for a more cost effective and efficient way to feed his cattle. After consideration and evaluation of several brands of mixers, Bill chose to purchase an NDE unit. Here are some of the benefits he has seen 1.) Reduced hay consumption by 1/3 (less waste than before) and more efficient use of what he has. 2.) 17% improvement in fuel consumption (less steps) 3.) Reduction in feeding time (3hrs/day on 250 head on feed) 4.) Ability to accurately deliver & fine tune the volume he wants to feed with his Weigh-Tronix digital scale system. 5.) Ability to utilize more grazing acreage vs. making additional hay on that acreage (helps to reduce days on feed) Bill credits his NDE rep. Dennis Trissel with being there for him whenever the need arises. Other than basic routine maintenance (grease) the NDE unit takes care of itself and keeps on going!

and dry whey averaged 56.39 cents, up 1.7 cents. The jury is still out on what’s ahead in cash butter which closed August 19 at $2.0875, up 1 1/2-cents on the week and 4 3/4-cents above a year ago when it jumped 12 1/4-cents to $2.04, eventually reaching $2.2350. Weather was a big factor last year as well. Five cars were sold on the week. NASS butter averaged $2.0941, up 1.3 cents. NASS nonfat dry milk averaged $1.5889, up 1.6 cents, and dry whey averaged 56.48 cents, up 0.2 cent. Buyers appear to be waiting for the butter price to fall more before the heavy end of year holiday sales season arrives, according to USDA. eDairy broker, Dave Kurzawski, warned in Tuesday’s DairyLine that butter could fall below $2 within a couple of weeks. He said the cash market looks at the futures market because it “tends to foreshadow sentiment going forward.” He adds that with all markets, from the Dow to milk and corn, “August is typically a very quiet month and we start to see more activity step in these markets as we roll past Labor Day.” “That hasn’t been the case this year,” he concluded, “August has been extremely busy, extremely volatile, and we’re just trying to find the best possible price we can and, as weather cools off here in the Midwest particularly, we have this kind of bearish bias on these dairy prices going forward, not
to mention the weakness in international prices that we’ve seen over the past few weeks.” Speaking of the international market; the CME’s Daily Dairy Report warned that prices continued to weaken in Tuesday’s Global Dairy Trade (Fonterra) auction. The Milk Producers Council reported in their August 12 newsletter that increased export volume in the first half of the year along with increases in the percentage of production exported, were recorded for five of seven major U.S. dairy products. The exceptions were dry whey and whey protein concentrates, with lower volumes and lower percentages of production. The U.S. Dairy Export Council estimates total dairy product exports in June represented 13.6 percent of U.S. milk solids production, and 13.1 percent of year to date production. The increases in volume from last year range from 26 percent for nonfat dry milk to 70 percent for cheddar cheese. MPC tipped its hat to the Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) program for its “persistent support given to their members in that most important of milk price setting dairy products.” Other percentage increases are 42 percent for cheeses other than cheddar and 59 percent each for skim milk powder and butter. The largest volume category continues to be nonfat

Cash cheese prices crashed the third week of August as they anticipated July milk production data but did the market overreact? The block cheese price closed that Friday at $1.90 per pound, down 12 1/2cents on the week, but still 25 1/4 cents above a year ago. Barrel closed at $1.8625, down 21 3/4cents on the week, and 24 3/4-cents above a year ago. Six cars of block traded hands on the week and 13 of barrel. The lagging NASSsurveyed U.S. average block price jumped 3.6 cents, to $2.1476, while the barrels inched up 0.6 cent, to $2.1611. It was the third week in a row of declines in the blocks which totaled 25 1/2-cents. Class III futures slipped as well with the September contract taking the brunt of
the country. He cited the extreme heat of several weeks ago as the reason why and admits that a good recovery is underway but the milk supply is still 5-8 percent below a year ago. He concedes that further erosion in cheese prices near term but remains convinced that “prices will spend a lot more time over two bucks than under two bucks between now and at least the end of this year.” Heat and humidity in July took a toll on milk production in the Midwest and Northeast, according to the Agriculture Department’s latest preliminary data, but Western output was up. July output in the 23 major states totaled 15.45 billion pounds, up just 0.8 percent from July 2010. Production in the 50 states, at 16.55 billion pounds, was up 0.7 percent. Revisions subtracted 5 million pounds from the June total, now put at 15.4 billion pounds, up 1.3 percent from a year ago. July cow numbers in the 23 states were estimated at 8.47 million head, up 8,000 from June, and 93,000 more than a year ago. Production per cow averaged 1,824 pounds, down 5 from a year ago. California production was up 4.4 percent from a year ago, thanks to 22,000 more cows and a 60 pound gain per cow. Contrast that to Wisconsin which was down 3.5 percent on a 65 pound loss per cow. Cow num-

powders, which total 481 million pounds so far this year. The second largest category was whey protein products which total 379 million pounds. Cheese was the third largest, with 263 million pounds. Butter exports totaled 75 million pounds, 8 percent of the amount produced, “a significant percentage of total demand.” Historically, exports have been used as market clearing sales, the lowest of the low, but that appears to be changing, according to the MPC. The estimated average prices received for exports this June was 50 cents per pound for dry whey, $1.63 per pound for the nonfat powders, $2.18 for butter, and $1.86 for cheddar cheese and the MPC said “It’s gratifying to note those prices were in reasonable relationship to the prices reported by manufacturers for the month.” U.S. exports continue to be supported by the weak U.S. dollar and rising global demand, but MPC warned that “recent international unrest and economic uncertainty appears to be affecting both, not for the better.” Speaking of exports; the CWT program accepted six requests this week for export assistance from Darigold and Dairy Farmers of America to sell a total of 2.9 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered through December and raises total CWT cheese exports to 60.5 million pounds to 20 countries and is the equivalent of 605 million pounds of milk, the annual production of 28,000 cows. The Agriculture Department’s latest Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook predicts milk production will continue to rise this year and next and fats basis exports will rise in 2011from last

year but soften slightly in 2012. Skims-solids export will show slight increases both this year and next. Higher milk production and slower growth in exports will pressure prices in 2012, warns USDA. Corn prices continue their upward trajectory, according to the Outlook, with August forecasts for 2011/12 raised from July to $6.20-$7.20 per bushel. Soybean meal prices were raised as well, to $355-$385 per ton. Alfalfa prices are expected to remain high into 2012. The most recent Cattle report estimated that producers were retaining 4 percent more replacement heifers than last year. The retention, combined with a 1 percent higher dairy cow inventory on July 1, led to an increase in the dairy herd forecast for 2011 and 2012. The U.S. dairy cow herd was forecast at 9.195 million head in 2011 and 9.190 million in 2012. Milk per cow is forecast to increase fractionally in 2011 to 21,275 pounds as higher feed prices and hot weather take a toll on output. Output per cow in 2012 is forecast to increase to 21,630. Milk supplies remain tight in most Eastern and Central states as well as Arizona, according to USDA, though volumes partially rebounded from recent heat stressed levels. Fluid interest is steady to occasionally heavier where additional schools are reopening. Manufacturing schedules are slightly heavier as a result. Weather remains generally conducive for milk production in California, Idaho, Utah, and the Pacific Northwest and, with added cows in some locations, receipts remain seasonally strong and often at above year ago levels.

I reported last week that cold and snow visited New Zealand. Reports indicate that some dairies had to dump milk but the volume was likely small. eDairy economist Bill Brooks says the snowfall probably won’t cause dairy
production problems unless cold, wet weather extends into calving and pasture season. In politics; Rep. Collin Peterson (D-
by John Hart Throughout history, a spirit of innovation has characterized the United States of America. From the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the space race to the computer age, Americans have always been innovators. And innovation has always found a home on the American farm. Take a look at a modern combine or tractor, and you will see American innovation at its best. But innovation on the farm
doesn’t end there. It can be found in the seeds farmers plant and in the products they use to protect their crops and nurture their livestock. However, the hallmark of American innovation may well be found in agricultural biotechnology. Thanks to the wonder of biotechnology, more farmers now plant insect-resistant seeds that require far fewer chemical inputs than conventional varieties. Because of the use of biotech
seeds, farmers can increase productivity per acre and reduce the need for pesticides. In addition, the adoption of biotechnology has encouraged the use of notill cultivation, which reduces both herbicide use and greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, biotechnology ensures a more affordable and reliable supply of food and fiber for consumers. The evidence is clear that biotech crops currently on the market are
safe to eat and pose no environmental harm. In testimony in June before a House Agriculture subcommittee reviewing the opportunities and benefits of agricultural biotechnology, Dr. Roger Beachy, president emeritus of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, MO, drove home the point that biotech crops are safe. “Since regulations were first put in place for the products of agricultural biotechnology in 1987,

American Farm Bureau Federation more than 2 billion acres of crops have been grown and harvested in a least 29 countries around the world,” Dr. Beachy testified. “These crops have been grown by 15.4 million farmers, 14.4 million of who are small, resource poor farmers in developing countries. The harvests of these crops have been consumed in billions upon billions of meals by humans and livestock around the world for the better part of two decades now. In all this vast experience, we have not a single consequence of a novel, negative consequence for health or the environment — not one.” Many scientific bodies attest to the safety of biotech crops. Studies by The National Research Council confirm that there has not been a single instance of harm to human health or the environment due to the use of biotech seeds. In Europe, the Joint Research Centre has concluded that biotech products currently on the market in the European Union are safe.
Based on the evidence to date, the benefits of commercialized biotech crops far outweigh the risks. After a thorough and rigorous safety and environmental review, U.S. regulatory agencies have proven that biotech sugar beets and alfalfa are safe for commercialization, yet the use of these valuable products has been challenged in court. The potential for feeding a hungry world through biotechnology is nearly limitless. Agricultural biotechnology is safe, sustainable and serves consumers by ensuring an abundant food supply. It is time to invigorate America’s innovative spirit by renewing our commitment to agricultural biotechnology, removing the regulatory hurdles that stand in the way and continuing to make consumers aware that biotech crops are not only safe but desperately needed. John Hart is director of news services for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You The ABC’s of after school nutrition (Family Features) — During the busy school year, it can be a challenge to maintain sound nutrition and quality together time for the entire family. By planning ahead and making resolutions about smart snack and meal choices, it’s easier to have everyone reconnect, recharge and relax. Often times a more casual evening provides the best opportunity to reconnect. Here are some tips for making the most of those treasured afterschool hours. • Families that eat together, grow together. Regular family dinners have long been touted as an important component of a well-rounded childhood. Include everyone during dinner prep by having them set the table or prepare a side salad. • Think outside the bag. Take lunchtime as an opportunity to teach your children about nutrition and help them pack their lunches the night before. Reinforce good eating habits by encouraging them to create a well-balanced meal that they’ll enjoy. Think of combining proteins, fruit, and whole grains to keep them energized. A trail mix snack made with Nestlé Raisinets provides real fruit antioxidants and 30% less fat than the leading chocolate brands. Or for a special treat, try this Whole-Wheat Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownies recipe made with Nestlé Toll House Dark Chocolate
Morsels. It has the chocolate taste kids love, and the addition of grated zucchini and whole-wheat flour make it mom-approved. • Make every sip count. What your kids are drinking daily has a big impact on overall nutrition. Made from 100% fruit juice with no added sugar, Nestlé Juicy Juice 100% Juice is a delicious, easy way for you to ensure your kids get at least one of their daily recommended servings of fruits. Pack their favorite flavor in their lunchbox and check out www.juicyjuice.com for product information, tips and recipes.

School bus safety For 23 million students nationwide, the school day begins and ends with a trip on a school bus. The greatest risk is not riding the bus, but approaching or leaving the bus. Before children go back to school or start school for the first time, it is essential that adults and children know traffic safety rules. Drivers • When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch out for children walking or bicycling to school. • When driving in neighborhoods with school zones, watch out for young people who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking of getting there safely. • Slow down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in neighborhood. • Slow down. Watch for children playing and congregating near bus stops. • Be alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic. • Learn and obey the school bus laws in your state. Learn the “flashing signal light system” that school bus drivers use to alert motorists of pending actions: • Yellow flashing lights indicate that the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles. • Red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate that the bus has stopped, and that children are getting
on or off. Motorists must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop sign is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again. Children • Get to the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. • When the bus approaches, stand at least three giant steps (6 feet) away from the curb, and line up away from the street. • Wait until the bus stops, the door opens, and the driver says that it’s okay before stepping onto the bus. • If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk on the sidewalk or along the side of the road to a point at least five giant steps (10 feet) ahead of the bus before you cross. Be sure that the bus driver can see you, and you can see the bus driver. • Use the handrails to avoids falls. When exiting the bus, be careful that clothing with drawstrings, and book bags with straps don’t get caught in the handrails or doors. • Never walk behind the bus. • Walk at least three giant steps away from the side of the bus. • If you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up because the driver may not be able to see you. Parents • Teach children to follow these common sense practices to make school bus transportation safer.

Chocolate Mug Cake This serves one or two — dust with powdered sugar or serve hot with ice cream. It’s not the cake of the century, but it takes only about five minutes, beginning to end, and it satisfies that chocolate craving (for a while). 4 tablespoons flour 4 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons cocoa 1 egg 3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons oil or butter 3 tablespoons chocolate chips A small splash of vanilla extract 1 large coffee mug Place dry ingredients in mug and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk and oil and mix well. Add chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract and mix again. Place mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed. Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate, if desired.
Secrets to making school lunches that kids won’t want to trade (NAPSA) — Making easy yet healthful lunches that your child won’t want to trade with friends in the lunchroom doesn’t have to be difficult. To help you help your kids refuel at school, here are several ideas for packing a healthful lunch: Keep it interesting. Pack a small quantity of several foods in a lunch box to keep things interesting. Have your child help cut sandwiches with cookie cutters into different shapes. Add colorful fruits and vegetables in different sizes and pack yummy dips such as fatfree or low-fat yogurt or hummus. Pick a theme. Trigger your children’s creative juices by suggesting themes, such as: • The Dip: Cut a baked chicken breast into strips and pack them with honey mustard for dipping. Include carrots and broccoli to dip in fat-free or reduced-fat ranch dressing. • Backwards: Make an inside-out sandwich using lettuce to wrap turkey, fat-free or low-fat cheese and tomato. • Mexican Food Mondays: Set out whole-wheat tortillas, lettuce, fat-free or low-fat sour cream, salsa, brown rice and beans that aren’t refried and have your kids build healthy burritos or tacos. Forget the white bread. Banish boredom by using whole-grain pitas, tortillas or rolls for sandwiches. Switch out the fillers, too. For example: • If your child loves PB&J, make a
peanut butter and banana roll-up. Spread peanut butter on a whole-grain tortilla, add a sliced banana and roll. • Fill a pita with your child’s favorite vegetables, adding hummus for extra flavor. • Spread some pizza sauce on a whole-wheat tortilla, add some low-fat or fat-free mozzarella cheese, then melt, roll and slice. Mix up the sides. Go beyond pretzels. • Dip apple slices in nut or seed butter. • Pack snap peas, sliced bell peppers or cucumbers for color and crunch. • Add more variety with air-popped, low-fat popcorn. Don’t forget that juice and sodas can be high in sugar and calories. Replace them with water or fat-free or low-fat milk.

Workshop offered on complying with meat and poultry regulations RALEIGH, NC — Small meat and poultry processors can learn more about complying with state and federal regulations at a workshop offered by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services this fall.
PaulB launches full sprayer buying site PaulB hardware has launched a new e-commerce site at www.PaulBParts.com to help farmers keep their sprayers running at peak efficiency. A “beta” site has been up for a few months with 12 volt sprayers; sprayer parts have been added that now include GPS Guidance, Nozzles and Boom Components, Fittings, Valves and Couplers, 12 Volt Pumps, Spray Guns, Strainers and more. Some recognizable brand names are TeeJet, CropCare, Hypro, and Shurflo. Local dealerships don’t always stock replacement sprayer parts, which can make access more difficult. “We wanted an interactive and easy to use Web site to help farmers research what they need on their own time, anytime,” said Parts Manager Kory Musser. “They can visually see the products they might need.” With same or next day shipping, and the rush shipping as an option, this site is also designed to help farmers who are stuck with an immediate problem. CropCare’s 12 volt sprayers will continue to be available for online purchase, which include 25 gallon ATV and Spot Sprayers, backpack sprayers, and their popular new 40-60 gallon ATX line that can be configured for 3pt Hitch, UTV, or pulltype. The convenient access to a wide range of over a thousand sprayer items should be of significant benefit to the farming community. More expansions are planned for the near future.
The multi-day workshop will take place in October. There is no fee for the course, which is being sponsored by the department’s Meat and Poultry Inspection Division. Interested businesses can choose from two sets of dates and locations: • Oct. 4-6, Mitchell
Community College, 500 W. Broad St., Statesville; • Oct. 18-20, Wayne Community College, 3000 Wayne Memorial Drive, Goldsboro. To register, contact Celia Overby at 919733-4136. Registration deadline is Sept. 15, and space in each course is
limited to 40 people. “This course is designed specifically to assist small and very small processors in meeting regulatory requirements,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “It also will give businesses insight into the thought process
used by inspectors in verifying compliance.” The course is intended for meat and poultry business owners, managers and supervisors responsible for food safety systems in their plants. Topics will include sanitation performance standards and
operating procedures, sampling programs and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point procedures. Attendees will not be able to use the course to meet certification requirements in part 417.7 of Title 9 of theCode of Federal Regulations.

The Harness Horse Youth Foundation, Harrington Raceway and the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension are pleased to announce that they are collaborating to offer a Youth Foundation Family Day on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Harrington Raceway in Harrington, DE. The day’s activities are designed to offer youth and their families a taste of the harness racing industry and working with harness horses. Participants will rotate through stations offering hands on activities covering subjects like parts of the horse, grooming and harnessing horses in preparation for training or racing, and feeds and nutrition. Equine professionals will be on hand to offer demonstrations and talks on blacksmithing, freeze branding and tattooing horses. Young people will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of profes-
sional drivers. Tours of the raceway’s paddock, pool and equicizer are also planned. The day will wrap up with interactive games such as Wheel of Racing and Jeopardy. Activities are designed for youths ages 9-11 years old, but families are encouraged to attend together. Registration is $10 per family of four and includes lunch. The mission of the Harness Horse Youth Foundation is to provide young people information and experiences with harness horses. The Youth Foundation, established in 1976, addresses youth education throughout the United States and Canada. HHYF is a charitable 501(c) 3 organization that offers opportunities for hands-on learning with Standardbreds. Additional programs include publishing instructive information and administering scholarships for students pur-
suing higher education. For more information on family day or to register, contact Susan Truehart Garey at email@example.com or 302730-4000. Registration information is available on the 4-H animal science web page at http://ag.udel.edu/exten-
sion/4h/animalscience.html You do not need to be a member of 4-H in order to participate in this event. If you are in need of special accommodations to participate in this program, contact Susan two weeks in advance.
Year’s first equine case of EEE confirmed in Halifax County RALEIGH, VA — A 4year-old horse in Halifax County was recently euthanized after contracting Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis, a mosquito-borne disease that is preventable in equine by yearly vaccination. It is the first reported case of
EEE in horses this year. “The number of reported EEE cases fluctuates each year,” said State Veterinarian David Marshall. “Late summer to early fall is peak mosquito season in North Carolina, and this is right on schedule for us to start seeing cases.” North Carolina had six reported EEE cases in 2010, 23 in 2009 and 13 in 2008. It is estimated that for every reported case, four or more cases go unreported. There was one case last year of West Nile virus, another mosquito-borne disease that affects equine. The EEE and WNV vaccinations initially require two shots, 30 days apart, for horses, mules and donkeys that have no prior vaccination history. Neither vaccination fully protects the animal until several weeks after the second shot, so it is best to vaccinate as early in the mosquito season as possible.
Marshall recommends that horse owners talk to their veterinarians to determine the best time to start the vaccination process. He also recommends a booster shot of each vaccine be given every six months in North Carolina because of the extended mosquito season. Symptoms of EEE include impaired vision, aimless wandering, head pressing, circling, inability to swallow, irregular staggering gait, paralysis, convulsions and death. Symptoms of WNV in horses can include loss of appetite and depression, fever, weakness or paralysis of hind limbs, convulsions, impaired vision or hyperexcitability. People, horses and birds can become infected from a bite by a mosquito carrying the diseases, but there is no evidence that horses can transmit the virus to other horses, birds or people through direct contact.
An open letter to horse owners, horse buyers and horse lovers in New Jersey by Douglas H. Fisher, NJ Secretary of Agriculture Earlier this year, an outbreak of equine herpes swept across nearly a dozen Western and Midwestern states after horses from those states had gathered in one spot for a national show, became exposed to the illness, and then returned home.

Letter from 13 this make it painfully clear how quickly a disease outbreak can spread among horses and how tragic the consequences can be. At the heart of New Jersey’s laws regarding the movement of horses throughout the state, the importation of horses into New Jersey from other states, and the sale of horses in New Jersey is preventing, as much as possible, the outbreak of serious, contagious diseases. These laws are intended to prevent a tragic outbreak of disease among horses, and the costs, both monetary and emotional, that it would impose upon New Jersey horse owners. These laws are for the protection of horses, and protections designed to ensure a safe outcome are no protection at all if they are not used or enforced. These protections provide assurances to both the equine industry as a whole and the individual horse owner alike that the state is safeguarding horse health. Anyone transporting horses, for sale or other purpose, even if it is from one point in the state to another, MUST have a negative Coggins test. In addition, anyone bringing a horse in from outside
the state for sale must have the negative Coggins test AND a certificate of veterinary inspection. Together, these steps would cost those bringing horses into New Jersey for sale a total of less than $100 per horse. This protection is relatively small in cost when compared to the hundreds or thousands of dollars it costs to buy and keep a horse. It also helps greatly in avoiding the costs, both financial and emotional, of quarantining, treating, or worse yet euthanizing horses whose health could have otherwise been protected. There are instances to which meeting these health requirements do not apply. While obviously not the desired outcome of the transporting of a horse, those instances specifically excluded from the rules are: importing the horse for immediate slaughter; importing the horse for research; or if the horse is to be immediately returned to its home state. I share the compassionate concern for horses and their rescue. Responsible livestock dealers, animal owners and animal lovers are as concerned as we are with the health of horses in New
Jersey and elsewhere, and we hope the number of horses without homes will decrease. These rules exist for a reason — the horses.
Horses serve us well and give us pleasure and enjoyment. But horses travel frequently — for shows, races, breeding, etc. They come into con-
tact with many other horses, and if New Jersey lets its guard down and “looks the other way,” we would be complicit in endangering them.
To invite the outbreak of vicious and even deadly diseases in our horse population would be the most inhumane act of all.

Mielke from 6 MN) says he will introduce his dairy reform proposal after the August recess. The legislation mirrors key elements of National Milk’s “Foundation for the Future” package. Speaking in a DairyLine interview this week, Peterson said he’s in the process of gathering additional sponsors and wants to keep it bipartisan but that has slowed the process because he wants an even number of Democrats and Republicans on board and have representatives from all parts of the country. He praised National Milk for its work on the plan but warned that there’s a lot of work ahead and that producers are not 100 percent united, which he admitted they never will be, however he hopes to get as much of a consensus
as possible. He said he knows processors and perhaps others will be opposed to the measure so it’s important for producers to be united as much as possible. Senate colleagues may soon be on board as well, according to Peterson. He has met with Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) who initially were skeptical of moving so early in the Farm bill process but, after explaining what he is attempting to do, have since said, “Get this moving in the House and if you can get some movement on this, this fall, we will then move in the Senate.” He added that the budget issue is also complicating and slowing the progression and putting the Farm Bill process in question but he fears that
the fundamentals in the 2008 dairy market prior to the collapse in 2009 are currently being seen and, “while prices are relatively good now, we could have another down turn and the existing system just does not provide the safety net that we need if we have another collapse in prices like we had in 2009.” He also admitted that some dairy farmers in his own district are questioning the plan. “The folks that are questioning it are the people who were actually in favor of supply management 10 years ago,” Pe-

terson said, “And the people that were against it in California are now in favor of it, so it’s flipped around.” “Part of the reason,” he explained, “Is that when feed prices were cheap and we were subsidizing corn to keep feed prices cheap, California and the western producers that have to buy feed actually had an advantage over the Midwest.” “Now, if the feed price is high and the Midwest is growing a lot of their feed, they feel like they have the advantage. So, to some extent, this is kind of a battle between
different regions in terms of trying to maintain or increase their share of the dairy market. I don’t think people should look at it that way. I think they have to look at the big picture.” He added the caveat that supply management is not written in stone, admitting that he too has questions how it is structured, and warned that supply management may not survive in the committee. It’s a “small part of things,” he concluded. “The way it’s set up, it’s kind of a blink on and off. So I don’t think it’s going to be that huge of a
factor in the whole scheme of things. What’s more important is that we get this margin insurance established, and we get some descent order reform to try to come up with a better order system in the country.” Meanwhile, National Milk reacted in a press release this week to recent charges that the market management element of the legislation being readied for introduction in Congress would not have been active in 2010 or 2011.

Time for a break! As a visitor attempts to get a closer look inside the cab of this New Holland combine, an unidentified spectator watches from a distance. As the day begins to wind down, this trio heads through the T.A. Seeds demonstration plot on their way to the next exhibit.
