Guy McLean — finding a better way by Sally Colby Guy McLean canters into the arena on Quietway Spinabbey, a liver chestnut that might seem somewhat ordinary. But Spinabbey isn’t ordinary, and neither are the three horses that accompany McLean, all at liberty. No halters, no leads. As McLean works his way around the arena, the at-liberty horses remain tight against him and one another; seemingly attached by an invisible thread. Although it’s not apparent, each horse is keenly aware of every cue from McLean. McLean is an Australian horseman, entertainer and bush poet who is currently touring the U.S. He says that his childhood dream was to become the world’s best horseman, but he didn’t know how he was going to accomplish that. “I thought maybe I’d be a trainer,” he said. “People would send me their problem horses and I’d make a big difference. Then I realized that if I kept the horse for four weeks, I got too attached to them.” McLean figured that if he wanted to become a force in the horse business, he’d have to become an entertainer. He says that it was the father of the three horses working at liberty - Hope, Sequel and Pride - that made him realize he could do it. “I paid $200 for a little buckskin colt named Nugget,” said McLean, adding that his plan was to train Nugget then sell him. That plan ended when McLean fell in love with the colt. “Nugget was the first horse I rode in front of 20,000 people. Two hundred dollars but he rode like a million dollar horse. He was just amazing. People were blown away with him.” The youngest of five boys, all with strong personalities, McLean was painfully shy and bullied because he wore glasses. “I felt very insignificant -

Photos by Sally Colby not because I was made to, but because they (his brothers) were so bold,” he said. “But on the back of a horse, I was faster, stronger and braver. I felt like an equal.” As a teenager, McLean cared for the 50 horses at his family’s holiday ranch resort in Queensland, which helped build his skills and strengthen his determination. “I had to deal with horses and people there, and the more I dealt with people, the more I wanted to deal with horses,” he said. “Now I’m dealing with people even more, and I’m comfortable in that arena.” McLean says that when he was working with horses as a

teenager, he started them in the usual way - with a bridle and saddle - but those extras would eventually be shed. “From the time I was 15, I thought that if I really want the horses to work, they shouldn’t have gear on to do it,” he said. “If I have to have gear on to make them work, I’m not the horseman I need or want to be.” How does the leap between riding one well-trained saddle horse and working a group of horses at liberty happen? McLean says that before leaving Australia to begin his U.S. tour, he was performing with the four-horse team he’s cur-

rently traveling with. People wanted to see Nugget, the $200 bush stallion, but McLean had moved on and was doing more, including laying one horse down and putting three horses over top. McLean says that when Nugget’s offspring started to mature, he knew that he couldn’t sell them - he had to do something special with them. “I’d see other horsemen do it. There were some great horsemen at home running horses side by side. Once I see that something can be done, I instantly say, ‘if he can do it, I can do it.’ Then I’d go home and play with it.” In Australia, McLean performed in front of standingroom only crowds and conducted clinics. “Everyone says they want a connection,” he said. “Everyone wants to be the friend of the horse first, but a horse doesn’t respect his friend. People say, ‘I love my horse - why does he stand all over me?’ Love doesn’t mean respect. Respect has to come first and love can follow. There are so many people that want to treat their horse like a dog, but the horse isn’t a dog. If they don’t have manners, we aren’t making them safe for the rest of their lives.” As an example of how he started training horses to work in harmony him, McLean relates the story of a young mare he was teaching to lead. “I’d lead the mare into the bush, then hop on and lead the lead horse home,” he said. “I dropped the lead and this young mare continued to canter with me. I stopped, she stopped. I backed up, she backed up. I went home and

started to develop it more, then I did the same thing with other young horses.” McLean says that once a horse does what he asks of them and becomes valuable to him, he is dedicated to caring for that horse for the rest of its life. McLean says that dedication must come with an understanding of the horse’s natural instinct. “Once we bring a horse into our world, we’re telling him not to be a horse any more,” he said. “To be a horse is to react against any pressure. If you pick up a wild horse’s foot and they let you hold it, they could be eaten. The moment he’ll stand on three legs and be held, he’s no longer wild. When we bring a horse into our world, we’re asking him to understand our world. We have to treat him in a way that says we understand his natural instinct. We’re saying to him, ‘forget your wild past - forget pulling against pressure - learn to give to pressure - and if you do these things, you’ll never go hungry, you’ll never go thirsty and you’ll always be safe.’” McLean says that his horses have shown him what they can do. He looks for the best in each individual, and devotes his full attention to bringing them to what he calls brilliance. “I never put a limit on a horse,” he said. “If I find one that sprouts wings in the middle of his back, I’ll ask him to fly.” Guy McLean will be at the Pennsylvania Horse Expo February 23-26, 2012, and will participate in the Road to the Horse for Team Australia.

Guy McLean has great respect for his horses and observes them carefully throughout training to discover the best use for each horse.

The extra protein and sugar in the feeds only add to a horse’s pain, not to mention the added preservatives that go along with the additional molasses,” said Battles. Horse owners also are misled when it comes to feeding alfalfa. According to Battles, alfalfa is designed to marble cattle. Its high calcium levels increase arthritis in horses and also increase the pearlization of foreign objects in the horse’s digestive track. “Alfalfa and sweet feed are the worst things you can give a skinny horse. My number one choice of hay is timothy and then orchard grass. Keep in mind that today’s hay is so demineralized that horses are not getting enough minerals out of their hay anymore,” said Battles.

Chasing paper compliances by Stephen Wagner Pennsylvania Farm Bureau has been doing battle for its members for 61 years now with President Carl Shaffer at the helm for the last seven years. Shaffer is not one to sit back and shut up about what he sees as dirty work at the crossroads. At this fall’s annual banquet and convention in Hershey, PA, he took the occasion to explore the largest thorn in PFB’s side, which is the arrogance of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Others have called it ‘over reach’. Even some of EPA’s speakers, when they take the stage, will say “cue the tomatoes,” a satirical jab at how farmers have come to feel about EPA making their lives far more difficult. “Too many forces are holding us back from achieving maximum production,” Shaffer said as he opened his Presidential Luncheon. “We know from our own experience on the farm that excessive regulations are one of the main forces affecting the efficiency, production and future of agriculture. There’s no better example of that than the actions of the federal Environmental Protection Agency during the past couple of years. Once during the past year I’ve had the opportunity to testify before a committee of the United States Congress. Thanks to the leadership of Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson and Congressman Tim Holden, I was allowed to discuss all the

evidence we presented concerning EPA’s excessive actions. Let me note one example. Time and again we have pointed out that EPA has failed to account for all the best management practices that are being used on the farms. It’s just common sense that if you don’t already account for what farmers are already doing to reduce nutrient run-off on our land, the new regulations by EPA will greatly exceed what’s necessary to restore the Chesapeake Bay. Unfortunately, EPA’s

regional administrator testified in Congress that agriculture is standing at the starting line in efforts to clean up the bay. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been employing conservation practices on my land, embracing new technologies as they’ve been developed, and going out of my way to implement best management practices, improving water quality, for more than a few years. Pennsylvania farmers have been running this marathon for decades, achieving significant reductions in nutrient and sediment loss. And yet the Environmental Protection Agency has the audacity to say that we’re standing at the starting line of this race. Let me share a bit of what I said in my comments before the Congressional committee just a few weeks ago.” “Farmers are concerned that billions of dollars may be spent to chase a paper compliance with a model that uses faulty assumptions rather than valid and readily available data. If the billions are spent and the practices are implemented, and reality proves that EPA’s projections are wrong, what then? Will farmers and other businesses in communities be expected to spend even more? EPA’s pollution diet has hardest deadlines and required deductions regardless of how much it will cost state governments, local governments, and private citizens. And if these targets are not met, the EPA has threatened consequences. Virginia estimates, for instance, that it will cost seven billion dollars to comply with EPA’s pollution diet. New York estimates it will cost them as much as six billion dollars. Yet this summer when President Obama sent a letter to

Congress identifying regulations that will cost more than one billion dollars, EPA’s Chesapeake Bay regulations were not on that list! When Congress asked EPA’s regional administrator why the Chesapeake Bay regulations were not listed, he answered (and I quote) ‘it’s not a regulation.’” At the beginning of this year, the American Farm Bureau filed a suit against EPA for regulatory overreach with other satellite bureaus also signing on. I asked Shaffer about the status of the suit since it is apparent that some foot-dragging has been taking place. “Farm Bureau has filed a motion to complete the record,” Shaffer said, “which is sort of a discovery motion. We feel that possibly EPA has not released all the documents necessary for a fair trial in the case. When we entered that motion, the judge said ‘I’m going to put this trial on hold until I make a decision on the motion to complete the document.’ Basically, it’s on schedule but that might delay it a little bit.” Shaffer continued his diatribe. “Now folks, back on the farm we understand that if it looks like a skunk and it smells like a skunk, it’s a skunk. Farmers understand that unreasonable and unworkable regulations are just part of agriculture. We have a long history of working with lawmakers and agency officials to help develop practical and effective regulations when they’re necessary. But in recent times, especially at the federal level, it seems that cooperation has been replaced by confrontation. Yet, we in Farm Bureau cannot just surrender to those who seem to constantly say ‘It’s our way or the highway.’”

New Miss American Angus crowned The selection of Miss American Angus is a long-held tradition at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE), where the winner of the annual American Angus Auxiliary contest demonstrates elegance, poise and a passion for the beef industry. Such was the case for 2012 Miss American Angus Brooke Harward, who was crowned Monday, Nov. 14, during the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, KY. The Richfield, NC, youth was among five scholarship winners competing for the crown. Other contestants were: Jessica Radcliffe, Weston, WI; Katelyn Wilson, Orleans, IN; Lindsay Upperman, Chambersburg, PA; and Maggie Jasper, Versailles, KY. The annual Miss American Angus contest provides one Angus junior an opportunity to promote the breed as an Angus ambassador. Miss American Angus assists with shows, educational events, field days and additional activities to educate others about the breed and the benefits of Angus beef. Each year, the American Angus Auxiliary — which sponsors and oversees the contest — offers its top five female scholarship winners the chance to compete for the Miss American Angus title. Each contestant must complete a written test, deliver a prepared speech, complete an interview and answer impromptu questions from a panel of judges. This year’s Miss American Angus

Brooke Harward contest was officiated by Bob Norton, Saint Joseph, MO; Mary Greiman, Garner, Iowa; and Jackie Lackey, Aspermont, Texas. Harward was crowned prior to the announcement of grand champion bull during the Super-Point Roll of Victory (ROV) Angus Bull Show at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center (KFEC). Harward is the daughter of Marcus and Patricia Harward and has five sisters, Lorie, Catherine, LeAnn, Marcie and Mattie. With her sisters, Brooke owns a show cattle business named Harward Sisters. She succeeds 2011 Miss American Angus Paige Wallace of Stotts City, MO.

upcoming holidays and are getting ready for the next round, expected to begin after a final accounting is made after Thanksgiving. DMN says sales are doing well in all regions, helped by promotional prices and feature ads for store and national brands, and food service sales are doing better than expected. Cash butter closed November 18 at its lowest level since December 2010; $1.6475, down 9 1/4-cents on the week, and 24 1/4-cents below a year ago when it lost a dime that week, 22 cents the following week, and another 6 after that, to land at $1.61. Only one car sold all week. NASS butter averaged $1.8382, up 0.1 cent. Butter prices have temporarily stabilized and world prices have increased, according to eDairy economist Bill Brooks. The November 15 GDT weighted-average price for anhydrous milk fat rose 8 percent, but the equivalent 80 percent butter fat price is still less than $1.31, Brooks said. "Our butter prices are still a fair amount above international prices, so opportunities for imports remain." Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed the week at $1.45, up a penny and a half. Extra Grade held all week at $1.48. NASS powder averaged $1.4860, up 1.4 cents, and the amazing dry whey price inched 0.4 cent higher, to 63.6 cents per pound, the highest in four years. The peak was 79.33

cents in April 2007. The MPC adds that the market for dry whey “continues to amaze.” Domestic demand is “very good,” according to DMN, and supplies are tight. Demand for export is outstanding. Production does not seem to be keeping up with demand, in part because cheese production is lagging and in part because a greater share of liquid whey is being shunted off for higher concentrated products. Jerry Dryer’s Dairy and Food Market Analyst reports that US cheese exports remained strong in September despite sharply higher prices while other dairy volumes were generally lower. September cheese shipments totaled 34.3 million pounds, up 22 percent from 2010, at an average price of $2.07 per pound. The average price for the benchmark, Cheddar price, was $2.05. January through September cheese exports were up 32 percent; according to Dryer, and third quarter, 2011 exports were up 3 percent, averaging $2.07; just like September. An estimated 7.7 million pounds of cheese (22 percent of the total) left the country with some assistance from CWT in September. An estimated 22 million pounds was/is due for assistance during the fourth quarter of this year, according to Dryer’s estimates, and nonfat dry milk/skim milk powder shipments were

How is Your Gratitude Attitude? Issued Nov. 18, 2011 The big bang you heard Friday was no theory. It was cheese prices in Chicago as the cash markets awaited the October Milk Production report that afternoon. After gaining a nickel earlier in the week the 40pound blocks tumbled 15 1/4- cents on one

week and two of barrel. The NASS block price jumped 3.9 cents, averaging $1.7646, while the barrels averaged $1.8209, up 6.2 cents. The California Milk Producers Council’s (MPC) November 11 newsletter, citing USDA’s Dairy Market News (DMN), reported that barrel cheese supplies for processing are tight but adds; “that doesn’t answer the question whether the tightness is from a supply decrease or an unexpected increase in demand.” MPC reports that other natural cheeses are also

down 11 percent in September from a year ago, still up 2 percent for the quarter and up 24 percent for the year, he said. Butter shipments were sharply lower during both September and third quarter but up 23 percent for the first nine months of this year. The world price continues to erode, Dryer warned, which spells problems for US butter exports near-term. The CME’s November 11 Daily Dairy Report (DDR) said international cheese prices are moving in the opposite direction U.S. prices are. Oceania cheddar is trading in a wide range, $1.47$2.04, down nearly 50 cents on the low end of the range over the last 10 weeks, according to DMN. DMN said “Oceania region cheese output, along with all other manufac-

tured dairy products, is in full swing.” International butter prices are weaker as well. Oceania butter is pegged at $1.63-$1.86, down 25 cents in 10 weeks, and the lowest price since spring 2010. World milk powder prices are steady. But, Global Dairy Trade (GDT) auction prices increased across almost all product categories this week, according to the DDR. The weighted average price for skim milk powder was $1.52 per pound, up 1.7 percent from the November 1 auction. Whole milk powder was $1.62 per pound, up 2.4 percent; anhydrous milk fat was $1.62, up 8 percent; and cheddar cheese for industrial use was up 3.7 percent, to $1.60. The tradeweighted index for all products was up 2.6 percent, but just the second

increase since early June, according to the DDR. Dairy farmers and industry people met in San Diego this week for the joint annual meeting of the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (NDB), National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), and United Dairy Industry Association. Industry leaders talked promotion, marketing, exports, innovation, product and sustainability research, partnerships, collaboration, dairy nutrition, health and wellness, globalization and food safety, according to Western DairyBusiness magazine editor Ron Goble in Friday’s DairyLine, and “the mood was upbeat.” The dairy checkoff’s strategy of working with food and dairy industry partners is helping dairy producers by directly contributing to more than 7 billion additional pounds of milk sales since January 2010, Goble reported. Ryan Anglin, Arkansas dairy producer and NDB chair, pointed to targeted partnerships with industry leaders such as McDonalds and Domino’s as examples. NMPF leaders reported on the Federation’s achievements the past year. Chairman Randy Mooney and President and CEO Jerry Kozak, discussed the Foundation for the Future proposal which has evolved into the Dairy Security Act (DSA) of 2011 (HR 3062). They said that NMPF has done what it can to bring the issue to the front door of Congress and now it’s up to dairy producers to encourage their representatives to get it through the legislative process. The CWT export assistance program has achieved its mandated 70 percent participation and will be renewed for 2012-13 at 2 cents per hundredweight.

Chris Galen said in Thursday’s DairyLine that this year’s program had been operating from carry over funds from the previous year but the 2012 program will have new money from new memberships and that the funds will be used mostly for cheese exports but also for butterfat, giving important access to foreign markets. Exports are a “prime mover behind farm prices, he concluded, “And the more commitment we get from farmers to CWT the better off everyone is because it’s a rising tide that lifts everyone’s milk price.” But, dairy policy inclusion in the budget process drew fire from the International Dairy Foods Association’s Connie Tipton, who in a press release said; “The way the super committee process is being used to enact the next farm bill is wrong.” The Budget Control Act directed the authorizing committees to submit their recommendations and legislative language to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction by October 15. Tipton said “We now are a month past that deadline and only a week away from the deadline for completing the deficit reduction bill, and this farm bill has yet to see the light of day.” "Making matters worse, leaders of the Agriculture Committees have indicated that portions of the Dairy Security Act will be part of this still-secret farm bill recommendation,” she said. “If so, the super committee is on the verge of making major changes to the dairy industry that will impact millions of our citizens.” The Agriculture Department’s latest

Mielke from A7 Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook predicts that U.S. milk production will rise in 2012, albeit at a slower rate than the last two years. The dairy herd will be slightly smaller in 2012, but increased milk per cow will boost milk production above 2011. It warned that higher availability of dairy products worldwide combines with additional U.S. supplies to pressure product prices next year. While third-quarter cow numbers were slightly lower than October projections, the U.S. herd size estimate remains at 9.2 million cows for this year and is expected to slip to 9.185 million in 2012. Milk per cow is forecast higher than October’s forecast, largely offsetting the lower than forecast thirdquarter cow number. 2012 output is forecast at 198.4 billion, unchanged from October. Output per cow in 2012 was forecast at 21,600 pounds, up from the 21,305 pounds expected this year. The increase in milk per cow forecast in 2012 and the additional milking day more than offsets the small projected decline

in cow numbers, according to USDA, and accounts for the overall increased milk production next year. Checking demand; September fluid milk sales were estimated at about 4.5 billion pounds, according to USDA, down 2.3 percent from September 2010 after adjusting for calendar composition. Estimated sales of conventional fluid milk products decreased 1.3 percent from September 2010 while estimated sales of organic fluid products increased 8.9 percent. The DDR adds that year-todate milk sales are off 1.4 percent and remain on track for a 27-year low. Ouch! Looking “back to the futures” combined with the announced Federal order Class III prices, the Class III contract’s average for the last half of 2011 was at $18.72 on September 29, $19.16 on October 7, $18.97 on October 14, $19.12 on October 21, 19.36 on October 28, and $19.54 on November 4. The average for the first six months of 2012 stood at $16.63 on November 4, $16.72 on November 11, and was around $16.64

at our deadline on November 18. In other milk prices; the December Federal order Class I base milk price is $18.47 per hundredweight, up 2 cents from November, $1.51 above December 2010,

and equates to about $1.59 per gallon. The Class I price averaged $19.13 in 2011, up from 2010’s $15.35 and a disastrous $11.48 in 2009. Our sources do not foresee an MILC payment for producers in December.

The NASS-surveyed butter price averaged $1.8388 per pound, up 8.4 cents. Nonfat dry milk averaged $1.4783, down a nickel and a half. Cheese averaged $1.7788, up 3 1/2-cents, and dry whey averaged

63.42 cents, up 2.2 cents. U.S. milk production is holding mostly steady to slightly higher in the Southwest with levels trending above a year ago, according to USDA’s weekly update. Weather

ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) recently presented its “Touch of Class” Award to Anne Arundel horse trainer John Crandell III and his Triple Crown winning Arabian gelding, Heraldic, who together won two silver medals at the Pan American Games held in Chile on Oct. 21. Crandell and Heraldic will lead the U.S. Team in the World Endurance Championship in England in 2012 — an event held simultaneously with the 2012 Olympics. During the award presentation, Ashley Valis, deputy director of the Governor’s Intergovernmental Affairs, presented the Crandell’s with a proclamation from Gov. Martin O’Mal-

ley, declaring Nov. 15 “Heraldic and Crandell Family Day.” “Maryland has an impressive history of raising the finest equine athletes who continually distinguish our great state around the world,” said O'Malley. “I’d like to commend the Crandell Family for their legendary accomplishments and commitment to the highest standards of equine training and care. We look forward to the continued success of Heraldic and the Crandells as they represent Maryland and the United States at the World Championship next year.” Heraldic was in routine quarantine in Miami after flying back from Chile, but was released in time to make it to his official homecoming and silver medal celebration

event. Heraldic mingled with well-wishers, ate a few Maryland-grown apples, which were also provided to guests, and posed for pictures in front of the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) headquarters in Annapolis. “Maryland’s rich history of horse-related agriculture goes back centuries, and Heraldic is a prime example of why horses and their stories are so enduring,” said MDA Deputy Secretary Mary Ellen Setting during the awards ceremony. “Maryland’s equine industry has assets totaling more than $5.6 billion and employs more than 28,000 people. Heraldic is a wonderful symbol of this important industry, and we are proud to host him here

On hand for the presentation of the “Touch of Class” Award to John Crandell III, fourth from left, were Ashley Valis, deputy director of the Governor’s Intergovernmental Affairs; Erin Pittman, vice chair, Maryland Horse Industry Board; Mary Ellen Setting, deputy secretary, Maryland Department of Agriculture; Linda Crandell; Kathleen Crandell; Joe Crandell; and Jason Crandell. at MDA today.” Endurance racing is a long-distance race of 50 to 100 miles, with veterinarians making mandatory medical checks of the horses at strategic

points along the course. Major endurance racing courses are typically 100 miles and completed in a single day. Winning riding times vary between 6.5 and 13 hours, depending on the natural terrain of the course. Heraldic has been particularly versatile as an athlete, winning on the fastest as well as the most arduous courses in America. The Pan Am Games race course was a 75 mile course which Crandell and Heraldic completed in 6:03:38. The Crandell family has received recognition all over the world for its success in training elite endurance horses, and Nov. 15’s celebration was their first official recognition in Maryland. Heraldic’s story is the stuff of legend. Heraldic became the only horse ever to win the Triple Crown of Endurance Riding in 2006. Those three races are the Old Dominion 100 in Virginia, the Tevis Cup in California, and the American Endurance Ride Conference Championship. In each of those events, Heraldic also received the “Best Conditioned Horse” award. And Crandell — who has been a professional farrier and trainer since 1983 — was named Overall Horseman of the Year in 2007 by Chronicle of the Horse magazine. But in 2008, Heraldic suffered a life-threatening injury when he badly injured his stifle (the joint at the end of the thigh corresponding to the human knee) and had to recuperate without bearing any weight on the injured leg for months. Heraldic spent two years in rehabilitation but came back last year to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown again as well as his two

silver medals at the Pan Am Games last month. In 2010, he also won the FITS 100 miler with a time of 7:58. Heraldic’s astonishing comeback is a major reason the MHIB selected to honor him and his trainer. “This is a magnificent horse and a magnificent family that has made great achievements on the international stage,” said Erin Pittman, vice chair of the MHIB. “Heraldic is a world class athlete who overcame injuries that would have retired most other horses, and the Crandells are a family that has dedicated themselves to excellence in the equine industry. We are so pleased to welcome Heraldic and John Crandell back home to Maryland after their stunning performance at the Pan Am Games.” The Crandell family operates the Long Run Farms Stable in West River, MD and has made taking care of horses, especially Heraldic, a family affair. They have also operated the marine construction firm E.A. and J.O. Crandell Inc. in Annapolis since 1948.

Penn State receives Legacy award from American Quarter Horse Association The American Quarter Horse Association recognized the Pennsylvania State University with its Legacy award in October at its Breeder Recognition dinner in Amarillo, Texas at the Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum. The award honors those who have registered at least one foal for 50 consecutive years. Dr. Terry Etherton, Head of the Department of Dairy and Animal Science, said, “Penn State’s equine program has a strong historical legacy of success, and it is gratifying to receive this distinguished recognition of the continuity of this out-

choice for departmental emphasis. The American Quarter Horse was selected, in part, because of its popularity in Pennsylvania and because livestock judging contests replaced draft horses with Quarter Horses. The era of the Quarter Horse began with the purchase of the stallion Sorrel Chief purchased as a yearling from Michigan State University. Two mares, Akins Shirley and WMD Orphan Annie, became the foundation broodmares in the breeding program. Penn State’s herd usually contains 3 to 5 stal-

ate Research programs using the herd presently emphasize nutrition, growth and development. Extension programs utilize the horse to reach youth and adults alike in a variety of topics related to management, ownership, and handling of horses. Courses emphasize farm management, reproduction, marketing, training and nutrition. Stallions stand to outside mares with both onfarm breeding and transported cooled semen available. Most offspring are maintained until they are two years old, used in the handling and training program and marketed through the student run

sale in late April. Penn State’s renown as a leading breeder was solidified when they purchased the palomino Quarter Horse stallion Skip Sioux in 1971 from Hank Weiscamp in Alamosa, CO. In all, Skip Sioux produced only 255 AQHA registered foals; 66 of these foals went on to be point earners. In 1982 Penn State was the sixth leading breeder of halter class winners due to Skip’s success as a sire. This marked the first time a University was ranked as a leading breeder, and Penn State earned this distinction several times in several

categories throughout the early 1980’s. More information about the history of horses at Penn State can be found a t : www.das.psu.edu/abou t/history. Brian Egan, Penn State Horse Farm Coordinator and Equine Science Instructor said, “We strive to produce attractive, well balanced, structurally correct, athletic horses with a willing attitude and adaptability to many situations. These horses are used to educate the future leaders of our industry as well as the public on correct management, handling, and training techniques.”

Donations of outstanding horses over the years have been extremely important in creating a herd that has proven useful in all aspects of the Penn State program. A great example of this is the stallion PSU Dynamic Krymsun who is a result of a donated breeding to One Hot Krymsun for the superior Western Pleasure mare Dynamic Zippo. This young stallion’s foals are already proving beneficial to the usefulness of the herd. There is no doubt that recent donations will allow the herd to continue its success into the next 50 years.

Penn State’s renown as a leading breeder was solidified when they purchased the palomino Quarter Horse stallion Skip Sioux in 1971. standing program.” He noted that the program began in 1955 when the American Quarter Horse became the breed of

lions and 12 to 20 mares, and all horses are used in teaching, research and extension programs. Undergradu-

Corn Growers disappointed Joint Committee has failed to act National Corn Growers Association President Garry Niemeyer released the following statement in response to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction’s failure to produce a deficit reduction plan: “We’re disappointed the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction did not agree on a plan to reduce our federal deficit. We appreciate the hard work of the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Ag Committees to meet agriculture’s responsibility

to help address our debt crisis. “NCGA will continue to advocate for marketbased risk management farm programs that recognize our nation’s difficult financial situation. As the farm bill process moves into next year, we look forward to working with the House and Senate Agriculture Committees to address the critical challenges facing America’s corn farmers.” Source: NCGA News of the Day: Monday, Nov. 21

cess of Pennsylvaniasired yearlings at the auction says a great deal for the work that our state’s breeders are doing to improve the industry.” The $825,000 purchase of Detour Hanover, a full-brother to former Horse of the Year and popular Pennsylvaniabased sire Donato Hanover, was the highest price ever paid for a Standardbred yearling. The second-highest price paid in the yearling sale was $430,000 for Some Of The Beach, full-brother to another popular Pennsylvania-based sire, Somebeachsomewhere. Of stallions who sired 12 or more yearlings in the sale, trotting sire Donato Hanover’s offspring averaged the highest — $61,259. Pacing sire Somebeachsomewhere’s yearlings brought, on average, $53,100, while trotter Andover Hall, sire of Donato Hanover and record-setting Detour Hanover, sired horses averaging $57,756. All three sires are from Pennsylvania. In total, the sale’s 1,096 yearlings averaged $31,161, the fifth time in seven years that the previous year’s average has been topped. The 454 Pennsylvania-sired yearlings averaged $33,228, a 22 percent increase over 2010 and the highest average of the four major jurisdictions represented in the sale, including New York, New Jersey and Ontario, Canada. The mixed sale, held Friday and Saturday,

grossed 1 percent higher than last year, at $20.9 million. Mares, colts and stallions averaged nearly $22,000, nearly equal to the 2010 average. Standardbreds, noted for their speed and stamina, are exclusively used in the sport of harness racing. Consignors from throughout the United States and Canada market yearlings and other Standardbreds during the sale to buyers from across the world. Complete pedigrees and sale results are available online at www.theblackbook.com. The Pennsylvania harness racing industry has grown significantly, allowing Pennsylvania breeders more opportunities to prove the quality of their animals. Two additional programs have helped make Pennsylvania even more attractive for harness racing, including the Sire Stakes, for owners of top racehorses fathered in Pennsylvania, and the Standardbred Breeders Fund, for the owners of mares that were bred to a Pennsylvania stallion and resided in the state for six months, including foaling. Combined, the funds will pay more than $25 million in 2011.

support to N.C. State University and the university’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The two were recognized for providing “great leadership and advocacy on behalf of our citizens, agriculture and higher education in North Carolina,” said Dr. Johnny Wynne, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences dean, who hosted a presentation event. Assisting Wynne in making the presentations were Jim Smith, chairman of the N.C. Agricultural Foundation; Kevin Howell, N.C. State assistant to the chancellor for external affairs; and Chris Wessel, director of donor services and departmental fundraising for College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Advancement. Troxler is a 1974 graduate of N.C. State with a degree in conservation. Since taking office in

2005 as commissioner of the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Troxler has focused on developing new markets for North Carolina farm products, preserving farms and protecting the state’s food supply. He has also been a partner with and advocate for the college and N.C. State: Troxler serves on the boards of the N.C. Agricultural, Dairy and Tobacco foundations, and he has recently served as featured speaker for a series of classes for College of Agriculture and Life Sciences students. Under his leadership, the NCDA&CS collects funds for the Nickels for KnowHow program, which generates about $1.3 million annually in support of college research, extension and academic programs. NCDA&CS and the college also

jointly manage agricultural research stations across the state. Rouzer is currently serving his second term as a state senator, representing Johnston and Wayne counties. A resident of McGee’s Crossroads, he earned three N.C. State degrees in agricultural business management, agricultural economics and chemistry. He currently owns and operates a business consulting firm as well as a distributorship marketing environmentally friendly products. For more than a decade, he was involved in public policy development and implementation, public relations and legislative strategy through work in the legislative and executive branches of the federal government as well as through work for N.C. State University. On Capitol Hill, Rouzer was a senior staffer for

former U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms and former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole. He worked on various provisions of two farm bills and the 1999 Hurricane Floyd disaster recovery legislation. He is also noted for his role in crafting and securing passage of the tobacco quota buyout, which was of critical importance to eastern North Carolina. In between two stints of service with Helms, he was assistant to the dean and director of commodity relations for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, working with numerous constituencies to promote and advance the college’s mission.

Winter application of fertilizer and manure is regulated in Delaware The Delaware Nutrient Management Commission reminds Delaware farmers, lawn care companies, golf courses and other nutrient handlers that the application of Nitrogen (N) and Phosphorus (P) nutrients during winter months is regulated. Regulations were approved by the commission and became effective in 2007. The regulations limit the application of commercial and manure based fertilizer during the time of the year that is most vulnerable for nutrient runoff, — the period between Dec. 7 and Feb. 15. Certified nutrient handlers are limited in N and P fertilizer and manure applications as follows, unless otherwise specified in their nutrient management plan: • The application may not occur between Dec. 7 and Feb. 15; • The application may not occur on snow covered or frozen ground; and • The application may

not occur on impervious surfaces such as sidewalks, roads and other paved areas if the misdirected fertilizer is not removed on the same day of application. Larry Towle, Program Administrator, said, “A core nutrient management best management practice is to apply nutrients just prior to or during active plant growth. Most rain runoff events occur in the winter and spring so protecting fertilizer from these rain events is imperative.” Failure to comply with regulations may result in a compliance and enforcement hearing before the commission. For more information on Delaware’s Nutrient Management regulations, contact the Delaware Department of Agriculture Nutrient Management Section by phone at 800-282-8685 (instate calls only) or 302-698-4500; by fax at 302-697-4768; or e-mail Larry.Towle@state.de.us.

New edition of veterinarian Johne’s Disease handbooks available Dairy and beef producers and their veterinarians who want to help prevent or control Johne’s disease in their herds often ask where they should start with the process. The answer: Begin by conducting an onfarm risk assessment, then develop and follow a management plan specific to a farm or ranch. Three recently updated handbooks — “Handbook for Veterinarians and Dairy Producers,” “Handbook for Veterinarians and Beef Producers” and “How to do Risk Assessments and Develop Management Plans for Johne’s Disease” — are available for dairy and beef producers and their veterinarians who are serious about addressing Johne’s disease and stopping the financial drain of this devastating disease. This fourth edition of the handbooks reflect the USDA’s updated Program Standards for the Voluntary Bovine Johne’s Disease Control Program and are significantly more user friendly. “The team in charge of developing the 2011 edition of the handbooks brainstormed long and hard to develop easy-tocomprehend and easy-tocomplete information and forms, and I think all three handbooks are homeruns,” states Dr. Elisabeth Patton, chairman of U.S. Animal Health Association’s Johne’s Disease Committee. Patton explains that the handbooks are for use by veterinarians with dairy and beef clients to improve biosecurity and reduce pathogens, particularly Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis or MAP, the bacteria known to cause Johne’s disease. The ‘how to do risk assessments and develop management plans’ handbook is a companion piece to the other two. “Together the three handbooks are a veterinarian’s manual to help dairy and beef producers reduce or prevent Johne’s disease in their herds,” Patton adds. “That said, many of the management practices developed to address Johne’s disease should help reduce the presence of other pathogens as well.” The “Handbook for Veterinarians and Dairy Producers” is short and to the point: one page is devoted to “current herd health status and concerns” while the remaining six pages address risk assessment and management recommendations related to calving area,

pre-weaned heifer calves, post-weaned heifers, bred heifers, cows and bulls, and replacements and additions. The “Handbook for Veterinarians and Beef Producers” has just eight pages: one page for recording “current herd health status and concerns” and six pages dedicated to risk assessment and management recommendations related to calving area, nursing calves, weaned heifers and bulls, bred heifers

and yearling bulls, cows and bulls, and replacements and additions. The 23-page “How to do Risk Assessments and Develop Management Plans for Johne’s Disease” goes more in depth and covers seven key steps to helps reduce or prevent Johne’s disease. Step 1 — collect information on current herd health status and production; Step 2 — Collect history, owner goals and biosecurity data and esti-

mate Johne’s disease prevalence; Step 3 — Assess risks for transmitting Johne’s disease among specific animal groups, with descriptive guidelines for scoring risk factors for dairy herds or beef herds; Step 4 — Consider Johne’s disease management efforts will benefit and integrate with other health and performance issues; Step 5 — Select critical management practices to include in the management plan;

Step 6 — Build the elements of a testing strategy; and Step 7 — Do a reality check. Will the plan work? Plan to monitor it. The Fourth Edition. 2011, of the three handbooks were developed by National Johne’s Disease Education Initiative and approved for distribution by the Johne’s Disease Committee of the United States Animal Health Association (USAHA), the National Johne’s Working Group and the USDA’s

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Veterinary Services (VS). Pdf’s of the dairy and beef veterinarian handbooks and the “How to do Risk Assessments and Develop Management Plans for Johne’s Disease” are online at www.johnesdisease.org. Please contact your State Designated Johne’s Disease Coordinator for specific information related to your state.

Fall non-stackable manure application extended until Dec. 1 ANNAPOLIS, MD — Due to unusual weather conditions, the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) recently announced an extension for the fall manure application season until Dec. 1. Late harvest and heavier-than-usual fall rains have prevented many farmers from spreading manure by the Nov. 15 deadline. During this extension, farmers may apply nonstackable manure at rates up to phosphorus removal for the next harvested crop. Nitrogen applied must be credited toward the next harvested crop. Farmers may apply manure to fields with existing vegetative cover, such as hay or

pasture land, and those planted with cover crops. Application may not occur on snow-covered ground or on slopes greater than 7 percent. All nutrient application rates are governed by University of Maryland recommendations documented in the Maryland Nutrient Management Manual. Follow application rate limits due to Phosphorus Site Index (P-index) calculations where necessary. Farmers should contact their nutrient management consultant for assistance with rate calculations. Farmers should document field conditions and reasons for spreading non-stackable ma-

nure past the Nov. 15 deadline in their nutrient management plan records. For additional information, contact your regional nutrient management specialist or MDA’s Nutrient Management Program at 410-841-5959.

Country Folks has partnered with the New York State Corn and Soybean Growers Association to publish the winter edition of the Association's newsletter, The NY Crop Grower. This will be a special insert to the DECEMBER 26th edition of Country Folks East and West. It will also be mailed to all of the members of the association and to prospective members. Extra copies will be going to the Annual Corn & Soybean Expo in Syracuse, January 2012, and also to the New York Farm Show in February.

THE DEADLINE TO ADVERTISE IN THE WINTER EDITION OF THE NY CROP GROWER IS DECEMBER 9TH If you sell harvesting equipment, grain drying equipment, grain storage, seed or provide custom harvesting you need to be in this issue!

To place an ad or to inquire about advertising opportunities in this or future issues please contact your Country Folks sales rep or contact Jan Andrews at jandrews@leepub.com or at 1-800-218-5586 ext 110

The P-index is a tool that can be used to evaluate the potential phosphorus soil losses as they relate to certain site characteristics and management practices. This tool provides nutrient management planners and farmers with a

method to evaluate their fields and to make management decisions based on the values obtained from the P-index. The extension on manure application until Dec. 1 does not apply to commercial fertilizer or stackable manures.

Poultry litter, and other manures with moisture content below 60 percent are not included in the extension. These “stackable” materials should remain in storage until the March 1 spring spreading season begins.

Mielke from A8 has been moderate and not a factor to milk cows. Northwest output is trending towards seasonal low levels with milk components building. Weather has been favorable for cows in Utah and Idaho and production steady to higher. Midwest milk output has been sporadically moving higher and lower at what is thought to be the lowest intake levels of the year. Processors are reaching to other states and regions for milk supplies. Eastern milk flow is marginally higher. The milk production season in the Oceania region is at or on the down side of seasonal peak levels. New Zealand output peaked about the second week of October and re-

ceipts at manufacturing facilities are indicating declines. Australian milk production is at its peak. Handlers and processors indicate that receipts appear to be holding with no significant increases being reported. The Thanksgiving holiday is upon us and one of the lessons God has been trying to instill in me the last few years (yes it’s taken that long) is an “attitude of gratitude.” It is so easy to focus on the things we don’t have and skip over the blessings we do. Look at the kids around your table today. Give your spouse an added hug or kiss and thank them and God for the profound blessings you have!

The Kitchen Diva by Angela Shelf Medearis New life for Thanksgiving leftovers Every year around the holidays I’m faced with the same dilemma — what do I do with all of the leftovers? I’ve stopped looking at leftovers as a problem and view them as a blessing and a challenge to my culinary creativity. Having a variety of already cooked and seasoned meats and vegetables means an easier time in the kitchen. This year, my Thanksgiving turkey and vegetables will be transformed into my version of Shepherd’s Pie. Traditionally, shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and “cottage pie” is made with beef. This is my twist on these two favorite English casseroles, substituting leftover roast turkey or ham for the meat, whatever leftover vegetables I happened to have on hand for the filling, and a combination of mashed white potatoes and sweet potatoes for the savory topping. Try this Diva-Style Shepherd’s Pie and cure your culinary dilemma this holiday season!

Diva-style shepherd’s pie You can double this recipe to use up an abundance of leftovers and freeze one pan to serve later. You can make one version of this Shepherd’s Pie with turkey and the other with ham, if you’d like. Wrap the pan tightly with plastic wrap and cover it with foil. It will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 4 teaspoons olive oil 1 cup chopped yellow onions 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons tomato paste 1 1/4 cups chicken or turkey stock or canned chicken broth 1 bay leaf 2 to 2 1/2 cups chopped or shredded roast turkey (white and/or dark meat) or baked ham

1 1/2 cups cooked or frozen vegetables, any combination (carrots, corn, green beans, green peas, etc.) 4 cups leftover mashed potatoes (white and/or sweet potatoes, separately or mixed together or Mixed Mashed Potatoes (recipe follows) 3/4 cup grated sharp or medium Cheddar Chopped green onions, parsley or celery leaves (optional for garnish) 1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a 9-inch square or 2.2 quart baking dish with the butter and set aside. 2. In a large saute pan or skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, poultry seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until the onions are soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 20 seconds. Add the flour and cook, stirring, until thick, about 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually add the stock and then the bay leaf, and bring to a boil. 3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the mixture is thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the meat and the vegetables, stir well to combine, cook for 2 minutes. 4. Remove from the pan from the heat and discard the bay leaf. Carefully transfer to the prepared dish and spoon the potatoes over the meat mixture, spreading to the edges with a fork. Place pan on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the cheese and bake until the cheese is bubbly and the potatoes are crisp around the edges, 22 to 25 minutes. 5. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped green onions, parsley or celery leaves, if desired, and serve. Serves 4.

Mixed mashed potatoes 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, quartered and cut into 1-inch wedges 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered and cut into 1-inch wedges 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup milk 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 tablespoons heavy cream, half and half or evaporated milk 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1. Place the potatoes in a medium, heavy saucepan with enough salted water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 25 minutes.

2. Drain in a colander and return to saucepan. Over medium-low heat, cook the potatoes for 1 minute to dry. Add milk, butter, cream or half and half or evaporated milk, and salt and pepper, and mash until smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 4 to 6 servings. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Pumpkin cheesecake 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) Butter, melted 1 cup Gingersnap cookie crumbs (about 24 cookies) 2 pounds Cream Cheese, room temperature 2 1/2 cups Sugar 1/4 cup Sour cream 1 15-oz. can Pumpkin puree 6 Eggs, lightly beaten 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon Salt 1 tablespoon ground Cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground Cloves Garnish: 2 cups sweetened Whipped Cream 1/2 cup toasted Pecans, roughly chopped Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325°F. Spray 10” springform pan with cooking spray. Combine melted butter and cookie crumbs and press on bottom of pan. Bake for about 15 minutes. Crust will firm up. Cool. Then wrap outside of pan with foil and place in a roasting pan. Bring a kettle of water to boil. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and beat until light. Beat in the sour cream, and the remaining ingredients, just until combined well, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Pour mixture into cooled crust and place the roasting pan with cheesecake in it in the oven. With rack in, pour the boiling water into the roasting pan until it comes about halfway up the side of the springform pan. Bake about 1 hour and 45 minutes (cheesecake sets on the outside but may still be a bit loose in the center). If it starts to darken, you may cover it loosely with foil. Turn off the oven; open the door for 1 minute to let out some heat; leave in the oven 1 additional hour. Carefully remove from roasting pan and cool on a rack. Run a knife around edges, cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. To serve: Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before serving. Unlock and remove the springform ring. Serve with whipped cream and toasted pecans. Serves 12 Source: Virginia Egg Council

Farm Bureau convention will include workshop on conservation easements When Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members gather for their annual convention Nov. 29 through Dec. 1 at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, they will have an opportunity to learn how farmers can benefit from conservation easements. Matt Lohr, Virginia’s 14th commissioner of agriculture and consumer services, will moderate a panel discussion on integrating conservation easements into farm plans. Other professionals with expertise in commercial real estate and farmland conservation will share tips for determining whether

the agreements might be beneficial. The final round of the VFBF Young Farmers Discussion Meet also will be held at the convention. The competition simulates a committee-style discussion about a predetermined agricultural topic, with judging based on participants’ problem-solving and consensus-building skills. The Discussion Meet winner will compete on the national level in January at the 2012 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention in Hawaii. During a Nov. 30 banquet, Farm Bu-

reau will present its annual Distinguished Service Awards, which recognize individuals who have worked diligently to support the organization and Virginia’s agriculture industry. The theme of this year’s convention is “Ag Trade: Growing Opportunities.” On the agenda for Nov. 29 is an educational workshop about the Port of Virginia and its agricultural export capabilities. Keynote speaker J.J. Keever, senior deputy executive director for external affairs for the Virginia Port Authority, will talk about “Agriculture & Mar-

itime: Partnering for a Brighter Future” at the convention’s opening luncheon. The luncheon also will be used to recognize print and broadcast news professionals with the VFBF Journalism Awards for exemplary coverage of agriculture. During general sessions of the convention, voting delegates from each of Virginia’s 88 county Farm Bureaus will discuss and vote on the organization’s state and federal legislative policies for the coming year.

PA Preferred reception to kick off 96th Pennsylvania Farm Show HARRISBURG, PA — Agriculture Secretary George Greig invited Pennsylvania Farm Show enthusiasts and exhibitors to the PA Preferred™ Reception, to be held from 5:30–8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 5, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.

Hall, the reception will feature samples of PA Preferred products including beef, veal, pork, chicken, trout, mushrooms, cheeses, vegetables, fruits and desserts. Local beverages will include milk, soda, craft beers and wine. New this year, the annual butter sculpture will be unveiled and broadcasted live to the reception.

Mixed findings from Stephenson/Nicholson dairy policy study Illustrate shortcomings of simplistic interpretation of economic analysis ARLINGTON, VA — The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) questioned the selective and simplistic interpretation of new dairy legislation by organizations opposed to the Dairy Security Act (DSA) that Congress is now debating. On Oct. 24, the Dairy Business Association (DBA), an organization of dairy producers and corporate interests based in Wisconsin, issued a press release that cited the findings of a review of the congressional dairy legislation by Dr. Mark Stephenson of the University of Wisconsin, and Dr. Chuck Nicholson of Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. The release, which was jointly issued by DBA and the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA), noted that with high participation by dairy producers in its safety net programs, the Dairy Security Act could cost the U.S. government “About $2 billion more than current dairy programs.” However, on Oct. 25, a short paper authored by Drs. Stephenson and Nicholson reported that the provisions of the DSA, if enacted with high dairy producer participation, would save the U.S. government close to $700 million. Specifically, the DBA interpretation reported government expenditures of $3.663 billion, versus a baseline of $1.601 billion during 2012-2020, while the recent Stephenson/Nicholson paper shows government expenditures of just $824 million, versus a baseline of $1.592 billion during 2012-2018, under a high participation scenario. According to NMPF, these contrary findings “clearly illustrate the challenges associated with simplistic attempts to communicate results from complex economic modeling,” said Jerry Kozak, President and CEO of NMPF. The authors themselves note on page 2 of their paper that, “Each of these assumptions about how producers will respond to the program is highly uncertain.” Those uncertainties are illustrated by the fact that although their paper says that the market stabilization program will be in effect 40 to 45 percent of the time, the reality is that between

2006, and the present, it would have triggered in only 9 percent of the time, Kozak said. “Some economic models are acutely sensitive to the assumptions used in the analysis — as is the case with the Stephenson/Nicholson model. Unfortunately, the more sensitive the model, the more likely that dramatic differences in outcomes will result from relatively minor changes in the assumptions underlying the

analysis,” he said. Because of the great variation in reported results, “it must be concluded that changes in the assumptions used in the analysis occurred between the issuance of the DBA release, and the subsequent appearance of the authors’ own papers. Consequently, it is extremely difficult to utilize any background information or results from this study in a substantive public policy discussion,” Kozak said.

Drs. Stephenson and Nicholson themselves noted the limitations of their model with respect to how the DSA would affect net farm operating income (NFOI) due to lower prices: “It is important to note however, that the current volatility imposes costs on farms (that is, it usually requires changes in management and financing that have costs) and can result in substantial equity loss and a higher

probability of business failure. These costs and risks are not directly included in our analysis, so it is not possible to conclude on the basis of reduced average NFOI that dairy farmers would be worse off under the proposed legislation.” “Such caveats by economic researchers are often excluded by those attempting to focus on specific outcomes which serve their messaging purposes. This certainly

appears to be the case regarding the press release issued by the Dairy Business Association and the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association,” Kozak said. “No one’s interests are well served when the debate surrounding efforts to reform federal dairy policy is subjected to selective or less than complete reporting of pertinent research,” said Kozak.
