Branded Ranch Sorting and Roping gives feell forr lifee off thee Greatt Basin n Buckaroo ~ Page 2

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:10-11

Branded Ranch Sorting and Roping gives visitors a feel for the life of the Great Basin Buckaroo by Jennifer Showalter GREENVILLE, VA — It’s not the hat, boots, spurs, or buckle that makes a cowboy or cowgirl, rather it is their knowledge of cattle, horses and the land. As more people become specialized in one area, those who know how to run a traditional ranch are becoming fewer. Even those who compete in normal timed cattle sortings, ropings, and cutting competitions, would learn real fast that in the real world, cattle must be handled a lot differently than in the show ring. Time is always a precious thing, but too often it does not pay to be in a big hurry when roping and sorting cattle. Those who have a good mix of both cow and horse sense are usually referred to as cowboys, but in different regions of the country they have acquired such names as crackers, punchers, Buckaroos and Vaqueros. The attire, gear, horsemanship, stockmanship, and style is different for each of these classifications. From flat brim to taco shaped hats, from bosals and mecates to all sorts of fancy bits, from bull whips to rawhide riatas, each region has a different look and style. The Great Basin Buckaroo evolved from the California Vaquero during the mid 1800’s. Technically the Vaquero and the Buckaroo were the same, except the Vaqueros were from Spanish or Indian descent, while the Buckaroos were Caucasian. The style of the Vaqueros and the Buckaroos along with their horsemanship and low stress cattle roping and handling techniques set them apart from cowboys. Today’s Buckaroos sincerely honor those of the past and make every effort to uphold their traditions. With this in mind, Chad Whetsel thought it was only appropriate to host a Buckaroo style branded ranch sorting and roping to give those on the east coast a chance to gain an appreciation of the Buckaroo style. From novice riders to experienced Buckaroos, contestants were able to put their skills to test as they sorted through a pen of 36 calves, consisting of six groups of six like-branded calves. Each group had their own faux brand with each calf being differentiated with

a different insignia. The novice teams consisted of two riders and were required to sort out six calves. The open teams also consisted of two riders. They were required to sort out five calves and use a break-a-way rope to catch the sixth calf and drive it to the pen without the honda being broken. The Buckaroo class consisted of three men teams. Each team member sorted out the first three calves. Then they had to head, heel and lay down three calves rotating their position each time. The contestants were judged on their horsemanship skills, stockmanship skills, team work, and performance rather than speed. In real life situations, reducing stress on cattle pays dividends, and the contest was intended to mimic situations Buckaroos face daily. Introducing a new concept to an area is always a challenge, but Whetsel and others who supported the event feel that it was a real eye opener for many and hope to see more participation in future events. “This was the first time I had ever organized an event of any kind, and regardless, am pretty proud of this event. The feedback and response of those who attended was very positive and encouraging. It seems as though many came forward and confessed that their misconceptions of the judged event were soon put to rest when they actually saw the concept of working stock slowly, deliberately, and methodically firsthand by those who practice this discipline on a daily basis. Someone made a good point, not to slander the timed events, but most of the people who participate in those events don’t have to do this for a living. It seems to me that if a rider, of any discipline, was to get involved with this activity, they wouldn’t be able to get enough of it. It is also very obvious that some foundation has to be in place with the rider and the horse in order for a person to progress to any level. Not only does this event mimic a more realistic approach to handling livestock, but it allows the horse and rider a better opportunity to think about what is happening in front of them in order to respond in a more accepting way. For this very reason, almost anybody can participate making it a very family

Our hopes are to have more of these events in the future,” said Whetsel. Whetsel was born in Harrisonburg, VA, but grew up moving all around the country. Shortly after graduating with a BS in Animal Science, and a minor in Construction Engineering from Virginia Tech, Whetsel’s family made the decision to disperse their 400 head commercial black cow herd because of the increasing challenge of maintaining leases. The closure of this door only opened up many more for Whetsel. At this point, Whetsel made the decision to head west and start his adventure as a Buckaroo. “Since 1997 I have worked on ranches in Wyoming, Montana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah, Nevada and California, ranging from a couple thousand acres up to over a million acres, 300 cows to over 15,000 mama cows,” said Whetsel. The time Whetsel spent in Buckaroo country was like no other for him. “Not to take anything away from any cowboy in other parts of the country, because for the most part they are a product of their environment in which they practice their trade, but until you experience the life of a Great Basin Buckaroo, you’ll never have the appreciation for when I say, they are a culture who stand alone. They have a complete different mindset in their entire existence. They carry themselves differently, handle their stock differently and hold their horses in such high esteem that they adorn them with silver and trappings made for them, not the rider. I have such a great respect and appreciation for the history and the traditions of the California Vaquero and Great Basin Buckaroo. That is all I think about. I go to bed thinking about Buckarooing, horses and saddles and

wake up thinking about Buckarooing, horses and saddles.” Not just anyone can become a Buckaroo. It is a life changing experience to take on the challenge of being accepted as a Buckaroo, but Whetsel knew as soon as he experienced the lifestyle he was up for it. “Most Buckaroos are born into the culture, but a few who dedicate the time to learn their ways and respect their traditions, along with abiding the etiquette and putting in the saddle time, may at some point be accepted and respected as a Buckaroo themselves. It is interesting that the renaissance of all of the horsemanship the general public is so drawn to today, comes from this culture.” After a few years of doing ranch work, Whetsel made the decision to follow another dream of his, learning how to make saddles and cowboy boots. “In 2006, I left the Padlock Ranch in Wyoming to pursue this trade at the boot and saddle school at then Oklahoma State University.” After completing the program, Whetsel moved to California and met his wife Suzanne. The Whetsels have a 2 1/2 year daughter Sierra and 5 month old son Canyon. Living in Virginia now, Whetsel is the full time cowboy for the Shenandoah Cattle Company, a yearling outfit that runs between 2,500 and 3,000 calves between Augusta, Highland and Bath Counties. This year, the Whetsels started Chad Whetsel Stock Saddle Company under the business name of Buckaroo Classics.

by Sally Colby Although winter crop meetings will soon be here, think ahead to mid-April: you’re scouting soybeans and there’s evidence of insect or disease issues. You call your certified crop advisor or extension agent for advice, and they want to know what the growth stage is. Can you answer accurately? Del Voight, Penn State Extension grain crop specialist, explains that producers should be familiar with the commonly understood stages of soybean growth, from emergence to harvest. “In order for us to talk intelligently with others, we go by these growth stages,” said Voight during one of several soybean workshops held recently throughout Pennsylvania. “A critical time is the first 20 days. Then later in the season, the pod fill stage becomes critical. Then it’s important to harvest beans in time to reduce shatter loss.” The first stage of growth is emergence, or VE, when the first two cotyledons and growing points emerge from the ground. In the next stage, VC, the cotyledons are expanded, and unifoliate leaves are expanded and unfolded. Next is the trifoliate stage, or V2, in which the margins of leaflets of the second trifoliate no longer touch. V5 is the stage in which the margins of the leaflets of the fifth trifoliate no longer touch. “We use indeterminate varieties of soybeans,” said Voight. “They fluctuate in growth — their height is not fixed. The plant can grow very tall depending on conditions. Determinate varieties grown in the south get up to a certain height and stop. As nights get shorter and days get longer, the plant is triggered to enter the reproductive stage. As soon as there is a flower, the plant is into the R stages.” The soybean plant is susceptible to infection by rhizobium during the first 21 days of the life; the critical time for

nitrogen production. “It takes about four pounds of N per bushel,” said Voight. “A 60 bushel crop needs about 240 pounds of N. It also needs P — at least 40-50 pounds of phosphate per 60-bushel crop. And it needs about 80 pounds of K. If we don’t account for that, we’re going to be mining our soil rather than farming it — you’ll see soil test drop.” During this 21-day stage, the rhizobium produces that nitrogen. Voight says that Ohio State research showed that rhizobium infection at

the tiny root hairs is critical. “The natural rhizobia can get lazy,” he said. “You’ll get infection, and if you squeeze the nodules, they’ll be green or white. They’re not producing anything. Today’s rhizobia strains are much more aggressive and produce more nitrogen. For a very cheap treatment, the return on investment is high — about 200 percent.” Voight says that growers should check plants for nodules when there are two leaves — the first trifoliate. Early rhizobia infection is

critical. “It’s like corn,” said Voight, “you want N on between D6 and D8 for massive uptake of N. It’s the same with beans. If the nodules become fixated later in the season, it’s too late.” One of the main factors that optimizes rhizobia growth is a higher pH, around 6.5 to 6.8, so soil testing essential. Voight says that on virgin ground, or ground that has not had soybeans for five or more years, producers should triple inoculate with rhizobia. “But you can still have problems,” he said. “If you have excessive moisture levels after emergence, you won’t get infection. If it’s too dry, they can die. There are also a relationships with seed treatments.” In the R1 stage, the plant has one flower, then flowers spread up the plant resulting in the R2 stage which is fully flowered from bottom to the top of the plant. “It’s full bloom,” said Voight. “Walk into the field, open the canopy, and look all the way to the soil and see flowers — that’s R2.” Voight says that R3 is a critical stage for getting the most response from fungicides. The R2 stage lasts about 10 days, then the R3 stage is about 10 to 15 days, depending on the weather. “If you’re a custom operator, and your growers’ beans are entering the R2 stage and you have three weeks of work to do, you could miss that window,” said Voight. “You have to be ready to treat beans at the R3 stage.” Identifying the R3 stage is simple: from the top of the plant, count down three to four nodes. Any that are 1/4 inch or longer are R3. At this point, plants are fully flowered and starting to push pods. R4 is a fully developed pod at one of the four uppermost nodes on the main stem with a fully developed leaf. R4 is the most critical stage for seed yield — any stress to the plant between stages R4 and R6 causes more yield reduction than any other stage. Once the pods are present,

they begin to fill. “The bean in the pod is connected by a thin thread,” said Voight. “As soon as that thread is disconnected, the bean has reached physiologic maturity. Ten to 14 days later, you’re running the combine.” Voight added that in any given field, there will be variation in growth due to drainage, exposure and slopes. Voight mentioned that about 70 percent of soybean fields tested last year were below 6.0 pH. “If you go to a reputable limestone quarry, you should get 95 and 105 percent CEC (cationexchange capacity).” The results of soil samples are important tool for soybean growers. Because the pH of samples taken at different depths can vary greatly, Voight suggests sampling at both two and six inches. Voight mentioned a study done by agronomist colleague Doug Beegle that showed that it takes nine years for surface-applied lime to react to the six-inch furrow slice. Voight recommends using the quick Cornell pH test for the two-inch test, or surface test, and send the six-inch samples to a soil lab. The biggest issue for Voight is convincing growers to drop the corn head and get the beans when they’re fit. “Every day that you wait after physiologic maturity, you’re losing about a pound of dry matter per day,” he said. “As the pods shrink and swell, the shattering can be tremendous. It isn’t very hard to go from two to four bushel yield loss to 10 to 15 bushel yield loss. That was okay when beans were $4, but now they’re $12.” Voight suggests that growers use the Corn and Soybean Field Guide, published by Purdue Extension and distributed through numerous state extension services. “The critical time is getting the plant in the ground and protected, then up and growing,” said Voight, summarizing the growth stages. “Keep track as it goes through the stages.”

Paige Pratt, 4-H youth livestock Extension specialist at Virginia Tech and the team’s coach. “The skills they gain from these events will provide them with the tools to be more successful when making decisions later in life,” Pratt added. As individuals, Nixon placed 10th overall and Colby Redifer placed 11th. Both were named AllAmericans. The Virginia team also placed second overall in beef cattle, fifth in swine, sixth in sheep, and ninth in oral reasons. The team will travel to Europe in June 2012 and will be fundraising for the trip until then. In addition to participating in the Royal Highland Show, the group will have the opportunity to visit several other European countries to learn about their agriculture systems.

New risk management tool helps producers achieve GAP certification WASHINGTON, D.C. — Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan, along with leaders from food and agriculture organizations, recently introduced a free online tool to help U.S. producers of all sizes achieve Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) harmonized standards and certification, helping to further expand economic opportunities for American agriculture. USDA’s GAP audit verification program focuses on best agricultural practices to verify that farms are producing, and packers are handling and storing, fruits and vegetables in the safest manner possible to minimize food safety hazards. The free online tool — developed by FamilyFarmed.org with funding from USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) — helps farmers design a customized manual to meet GAP harmonized standards and certification requirements, including USDA GAP standards and mitigate business risks by answering just a few questions. “USDA believes that a strong farm safety net — including effective, market-based risk solutions for producers of all variety and size — is crucial to sustain the vitality of American agriculture,” said Merrigan. “Effectively managing risk is important to all producers, and having an acceptable food safety program is in the best interest of consumers, buyers, and the farmers themselves.” The online tool, part of FamilyFarmed.org’s On-Farm Food Safety Project, is the first of its kind and was developed by a broad coalition of farm and produce industry partners. It is available at www.onfarmfoodsafety.org/ USDA’s GAP audit verification program, administered by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), focuses on best agricultural practices

to verify that farms are producing fruits and vegetables in the safest manner possible to minimize risks of microbial food safety hazards. USDA’s voluntary audit based program verifies adherence to the recommendations made in the Food and Drug Administration’s Guide to Minimize Microbial Food Safety Hazards for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables. To generate a food safety plan using the tool, the user must answer a series of questions on topics including worker health and hygiene, agricultural water, previous land use, soil amendments and manure, animals and pest control, packinghouse activities, product transportation, agricultural chemicals, and field harvesting. In addition to helping farmers create a food safety plan, the tool offers farmers a full-set of record keeping templates to document their food safety efforts as well as useful food safety resources. Once users have completed their farm’s food safety plan and compiled necessary documentation, they have the capacity to apply for GAP food safety certification, a process asked for by many larger buyers. Large buyers including Compass Group, SYSCO, and Chipotle Mexican Grill supported the project financially and with technical assistance. Groups that participated in the development and review of the tool include: Chipotle Mexican Grill, Community Alliance with Family Farmers, Compass Group, Earthbound Farm, Farm Aid, FDA, NSF Agriculture, Produce Marketing Association, SYSCO, The Organic Center, Western Growers, Wallace Center at Winrock International, Wild Farm Alliance, University of California at Davis, United Fresh Produce Association, and USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.


UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — For the past several years, the Penn State Extension Dairy Team has been conducting research about key aspects of dairy farm profitability. Penn State researchers will share this information at a series of informal conference calls, starting in January. Titled “Show Me the Money: Strategies for Dairy Farm Profitability,” the program is open to anyone in the dairy in-

dustry at no cost, courtesy of a USDA grant. Callers will learn dairy profitability strategies gathered from the research, and will have an opportunity to discuss strategies for improving their own dairy farm profits, all from the comfort and convenience of their home or office. The format for the conference calls will be short presentations by Penn State researchers or other agribusiness profes-

sionals, followed by opportunity for questions and discussions from participants. Each call will be no more than one hour in length, and will be made using a toll-free phone number. The series features calls on five topics, offered on various dates and times. Each topic will build off of the previous topic discussed, but participation in all calls is not required. Topics, dates and times include:

• Topic #1 – Current Research Update: Whole Farm Assessment Tools to Identify Strategies for Increased Dairy Farm Profitability. Offered Jan. 18, 12 to 1 p.m. and repeated on Jan. 19, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Financial and production data have been collected on dairy operations from across Pennsylvania.

Penn State Extension offering cash flow planning workshops for dairy producers UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — The dairy industry is constantly changing and evolving. The perception is that producers can do very little to control milk income and on-farm profitability. This is not true, explains Virginia Ishler, nutrient management specialist with Penn State Dairy Extension. “Producers can learn to manage risk to control their future,” said Ishler. “Exerting control requires that producers know their break-even income over feed cost and their milk margin break-even. Knowing these costs will help dairies adapt to changing conditions as they develop,” notes Ishler. Penn State’s risk management team has developed a one-day workshop where producers can complete their annual cash flow and determine their income over feed cost/milk margin breakeven. Knowing this vital information will allow producers to use several risk management tools to maintain an operation’s margin — something that is especially important when milk prices are trending low and feed costs are trending high. “And with many parts of the country experiencing extreme weather conditions, including flooding and drought, earlier this year, it will be important to monitor a farm’s margin with potential high feed costs

on the horizon,” adds Ishler. Managing Your Milk Margin to Improve Your Dairy Cash Flow workshops will be offered at sites around Pennsylvania. Producers will create a cash flow for their dairy as they determine their income over feed cost at the workshop. Training is hands-on and is limited to small groups of no more than 8-10 farms at each site. Each workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Several extension specialists will be on site to work one on one with each farm. They will assist each farm with data entry and to help ensure accurate information is being entered. The workshop’s morning session provides a hands-on opportunity to actually complete the individual’s dairy cash flow. This portion of the workshop will focus on entering the ration and crops and annual cash flow information into Excel. Producers will bring their own data to the workshop to use in the planning process. Some intermediate knowledge of computers is helpful. The income over feed cost and cash flow checklist is located at www.das.psu.edu/dairy-alliance/education/profitability. With all the information from the checklist it should take approximately two hours

Follow Us On

to enter in the farm’s information and to have the income over feed cost and milk margin breakeven numbers by lunch time. During the afternoon session, discussion will center on how to make decisions using these numbers, especially related to cropping strategies. Discussion will also include monitoring the farm’s financials and making decisions earlier so profitability is not compromised. Program dates and locations include: • Jan. 25: Bradford County, Edgewood Restaurant, Troy, PA • Jan. 27: Berks County, Blue Mountain Family Restaurant, Shartlesville, PA • Jan. 31: Centre County, Visitor Center, State College, PA • Feb. 2: Cambria County, Keystone Restaurant, Ebensburg, PA • Feb. 3: Lebanon County, Penn State Extension Office, Lebanon, PA • Feb. 14: Huntingdon County, Penn State Extension Office, Huntingdon, PA • Feb. 16: Cumberland County, Penn State Extension Office, Carlisle, PA • Feb. 22: Crawford County, Holiday Inn Express, Meadville, PA

• Feb. 23: Fayette County, AgChoice Farm Credit Office, New Stanton, PA • Feb. 28: Somerset County, Penn State Extension Office, Somerset, PA • March 7: Blair County, Penn State Extension Office, Altoona, PA Advance registration is required. Husbands and wives and other dairy co-owners/co-managers are encouraged to attend together to develop their cash flow as a team. The fee is $40 per farm. Thanks to a grant from the Center for Dairy Excellence, producers with CDE Profit Teams may take advantage of this training at a discounted rate of $20.

MIDDLETOWN, DE — Hoober Inc., a farm equipment dealer with five locations, including one in Middletown, DE and one in Seaford, DE, held a benefit truck and tractor pull in October

NDE

to raise funds in support of Fisher House. The event raised more than $5,000, with all of the proceeds going to Fisher House. Located on Dover Air Force Base, Fisher

House provides suites and services for families who are receiving the bodies of loved ones who lost their lives while serving and defending their country. Hoober employees

George Bradley and Dave Wharry co-hosted the pull and several Hoober employees, customers, friends and family members volunteered to help make the event a success. CNH Global

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? Third generation Montgomery County, VA, dairyman Dickie Bishop, is a believer in the benefits his NDE provides. Previously Dickie used a stationary horizontal mixer in their operation, but his father suggested he look at going to a vertical mixer to get a better blend. Dickie’s decision was reinforced by another local producer, Bill McDonald, who owns an NDE himself and said he felt it was the best one out there. Dickie purchased his 1502 NDE this spring. The ability of his NDE to consistently blend a uniform ration is very important to the Bishops. Using a low inclusion microbial supplement, from Heartland Microbials, (call 540-239-7309 for details from Dickie), makes it imperative that you get a consistent uniform mix. His ability to blend long stem fiber into his ration with alfalfa baleage, rye bales and baled barley has been a real plus. Before he had to pre-grind and then blend. He eliminated that step/cost. They feed a two group TMR and seem to be well pleased with the cow’s response. Very few metabolic problems crop up now. That wasn’t always the case. Dickie also enjoys working with Dennis Trissel, who sold them the unit, and provides them with whatever advice and service that they need.

provided T -shirts that Hoober sold to raise additional funds. The competition, held at the Chestertown Elks Lodge in Chestertown, MD, included antique tractors, stock and modified tractors and trucks. Bradley and Wharry, along with Middletown store manager Mike Null and Brian Gott, service manager at Hoobers Seaford location, presented a check to Robin Rayne at Fisher House and were able to tour the facility as well. Being at the facility and going on the tour, which isn’t normally provided, made quite an impact on all of us, said Wharry. To meet the people responsible for running the Fisher House at Dover Air Force Base and hearing what they do for the families of those who have lost their lives serving our country was very powerful. You’re reminded of the sacrifices that are being made and that is very humbling. It made us wish we could do more. This year marked the

third consecutive year Hoober Inc. has hosted a benefit truck and tractor pull and Null said the impact that has been made in the first three years makes it exciting to start looking ahead to next year’s event. What we’ve seen is the community coming together for a good cause and having a good time doing it, said Null. The competition is really fun and we’re thankful to everyone who participates and those who contribute and volunteer their time. We’ve seen, firsthand, the difference this event is making and we’re already looking forward to next year’s pull. Founded in 1941, Hoober Inc. has five locations — Intercourse, PA, McAlisterville, PA, Chambersburg, PA, Middletown, DE, and Seaford, DE — and serves agricultural customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

It’s Not the Holiday “Dip” We’d Like to See Issued Dec. 16, 2011 Cash cheese prices declined for the fifth consecutive week. The blocks closed December 16 at $1.5625 per pound, down 9 1/4cents on the week but still 24 cents above a year ago. The barrels dropped to $1.5350, down 3 3/4-cents on the week, and 17 cents above a year ago. Seven cars of block traded hands on the week and 22 of barrel. The NASSsurveyed U.S. average block price lost 2 cents, averaging $1.8606. The barrels averaged $1.8325, down 8 cents. Stewart Peterson’s Matt Mattke speculated in Tuesday’s DairyLine that cheese prices might remain close to current levels, pointing out that $1.58-$1.60 is a “key range of support” and “pretty important level to stay above,” because, if we don’t, he warned that we could see the market test $1.54 and possibly as low as $1.48. He quickly added that, if cheese prices stay at current levels, it doesn’t necessarily mean prices will take off and move higher either. He also contrasted the trading activity and pointed to the large volume of butter particularly that changed hands the last week of November and first week of December and reminded us that the first couple weeks of December are typically not seasonally strong for cheese prices. Sometimes the first week of December is positive, he said, but the second, third, fourth, and whenever we have a fifth week, they’re typically down weeks so “we’re kind of in the seasonal doldrums.” He pointed out that, historically, if cheese finishes December on a down note we have seen some pretty decent rebound in January so, “perhaps there’s a little bit of a silver lining here.” Butter reversed two weeks of small gains despite a small uptick on Thursday and finished Friday at $1.6025, down 3 3/4-cents on the week, and a nickel below a year ago. Fifteen cars were sold. The NASS average

inched 0.4 cent lower, to $1.6245. NASS powder averaged $1.4418, down fractionally, and dry whey averaged 65.37 cents, up 0.7 cent. California’s Milk Producers Council (MPC) reported in its December 9 newsletter that butter production continues to increase in line with higher seasonal milk production and butterfat content. It quoted USDA’s Dairy Market News saying that retail and food service sales leading into and over the holiday weekend have been good to very good, helped greatly by retailers’ ads and promotions. Buyers who have not already placed orders for the next big wave of expected consumer demand are now taking advantage of the current lower prices to place those orders. All aspects of the butter manufacturing and marketing channel are very active, producing, shipping, converting and packaging.

MPC said price increasing two weeks in a row “may be a possible indication that the long, but unsteady, fall which began the last week in August may be at an end,” and added that “DMN hears from butter exporters of possible growing interest as U.S.

prices are super competitive with Europe’s but major competition for those sales continues to be Oceania, where milk production is booming. Mattke praised the whey market which “has had a phenomenal year,” rallying from the 32 cent level to the mid 60s and

“we haven’t seen much of a setback this year.” “It’s been a pretty quiet, pretty steady and controlled rise,” he said, but recalled that, in 2007, whey got to the mid 70s. He advised that we keep an eye on that market because every penny movement in whey

translates into 6 cents on the milk price though he warned “we could see a setback at any point.” Meanwhile; schools are or will be closing for the Christmas/New Year’s holidays sending more milk to the cheese

vat and pressure prices. Hopefully, Super Bowl will keep cheese demand strong. I have to mention that my favorite team is the Green Bay Packers and I think it a safe bet they will be in

the Super Bowl again so it’s so appropriate that the “cheese heads” will be driving cheese demand. The Agriculture Department’s latest Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook

said that an improved feed price outlook is balanced by lower milk prices in 2012. Production in 2012 is forecast to rise slightly based on higher milk output per cow. Exports are likely to decline next year compared with 2011, contributing further to the lower milk price outlook. Cow numbers were virtually unchanged from the November forecast and dairy cow slaughter for the January to October 2011 period was about 4 percent above the corresponding 2010 period, and replacement heifer prices are steady. This suggests no major liquidation is in the offing, according to the Outlook, but cow numbers are expected to decline slightly next year. Output per cow continues to rise, and lower expected feed prices are the basis for the increase in the December projected output per cow to 21,315 pounds this year and 21,610 pounds next year. Looking “back to the futures;” the Class III average for the first six months of 2012 stood at $16.63 on November 4, $16.72 on November 11, $16.78 on November 18, $17.16 on December 2, $16.84 on December 9, and was around $17.02 late morning December 16. California starts 2012 with a 79 cent drop in its January Class I milk price. The Northern price was announced at $19.88 per hundredweight. The Southern price is $20.15. Both are up $3.43 from January 2011however. The Federal order Class I base price is announced by the USDA on December 23. Like a broken record, U.S. fluid milk demand continues to slip. USDA reports that sales in the August to October period were estimated at

KELLY’S GARAGE 2868 Rt. 246 Perry, NY 14530 585-237-2504 SHARON SPRINGS GARAGE, INC. Rt. 20 • Sharon Springs, NY 518-284-2346 6799 State Rt. 23 • Oneonta, NY 607-432-8411

13.62 billion pounds, down a half percent from the same period a year ago, based on Federal Order and California state data. Year-to-date sales were off 1.4 percent. Class I demand is settling into nonholiday week norms, according to USDA. Cream demand is on the rise as production of various butterfat-based products such as dips, whipping cream, and sour cream pushes higher to reach store shelves before holiday grocery shopping begins. Demand for condensed skim is also increasing prior to the holiday. As winter weather envelopes much of the northern tier of states, dairy farmers in those areas are turning their attention to feed crop yields and feed input costs. Recent opportunities to buy feed grains at lower prices have helped, but forage prices and availability remain challenging. In the Utah/Idaho milk shed, announcement of a new yogurt manufacturing facility scheduled to open in mid 2012 has milk processors recalculating milk supply and demand, according to USDA. The milk production season in Oceania has passed the peak in both New Zealand and Australia and the decline is gradual. USDA says manufacturers and handlers indicate that milk volumes are generally sufficient to maintain near capacity production schedules. Producers and handlers believe the positive close of last season which carried over to the spring of the current season is a contributing factor for good milk volumes at this time. Spring and early summer weather patterns have generally been good in both countries.

Mielke from 13 In other international news; the December 9 CME Daily Dairy Report said that October U.S. dairy export volumes of milk powders, whey, lactose, cheese and butterfat totaled 281million pounds, down 2 percent from September (dailyaverage basis) and down 9.1percent from a year ago. Shipments of skim milk powder and nonfat dry milk, the largest U.S. export category, totaled 76.1 million pounds in October, down 13.6 percent from September, and down 30.1 percent from the record-high levels of a year ago. Cheese exports, on the other hand, amounted to 37.3 million pounds, up 8.5 percent from September, and up 22.2 percent from a year ago. In the first 10 months of the year, U.S. dairy exports were valued at $3.96 billion, 29 percent higher than last year, according to USDA. This is already a record-high figure for a full year, even with two months to go in 2011. The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) gave a thumbs-down on a 4b milk price hearing petition. In a letter to Western United Dairymen (WUD) CEO Michael Marsh, CDFA director Kevin Masuhara, denied a request for a public hearing on the California Class 4b milk pricing formula. Masuhara said CDFA would review the issue in mid-2012 to determine if a hearing was necessary at that time, according to Dairy Profit Weekly. The current dry whey sliding scale in the Class 4b formula has been in effect since September 1 and Masuhara said the three-month period was not long enough to deter-

mine how the formula will perform. As the result of a June 30-July 1 hearing on the issue, CDFA raised the whey factor paid to California dairy farmers, from a permanent 25 cents per hundredweight, to an adjustable rate between 25 and 65 cents. In its December 2 petition, WUD called for the new hearing, proposing changes to the Class 4b formula to more closely reflect the whey value generated by the federal order Class III formula. The 4b price in the California order and the Class III federal order price reflect minimum prices paid to dairy farmers for milk used in cheese processing. WUD was joined by other dairy farmer groups in calling for the hearing, including the Milk Producers Council, Dairy Farmers of America and California Dairy Campaign but several processing groups and companies asked CDFA to deny the request. They argued that further adjustments would negatively impact their ability to expand and innovate at a time when California milk production is growing and more manufacturing capacity was needed. In another political arena; the consuming public continues to demand integrity in the food it consumes and animal traceability is an important part of that demand. Jamie Jonker, National Milk’s vice president of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs, discussed a letter he authored to USDA regarding animal identification and traceability standards in Thursday’s DairyLine broadcast. He said that USDA has for a number of years

been contemplating how it might revise U.S. animal traceability and National Milk communicated its support for mandatory animal identification and how it “fits with animal disease traceability,” Jonker said. The Federation reaffirmed its support of RFID tags being the official identification for dairy cattle. The current USDA identification proposal doesn’t go far enough, according to Jonker. Occa-

sionally a tag will fall out of an animal’s ear by getting snagged on something, he argued, and the tags the Federation is recommending is being used by dairy producers within their own management system and it would be nice if USDA had an allowance where you could replace the tag with the exact same number so that it can continue to be used in identifying that animal in that management system. The tags are also used

in breed associations, he argued, so keeping that number the same with the animal during its lifetime, even if it happens to lose a tag so that it can be replaced with the exact same one. When animals cross state lines, they’re required to have an interstate certificate of veterinary inspection (ICVI) meaning that they have been reviewed by a veterinarian to insure that they meet the animal health standards moving

from one state to another. National Milk supports this concept and believes it should continue but want USDA to move from the paper ICVIs currently used to an electronic ICVI. The paper base version has many drawbacks, he said, including the length of time required to search volumes of records and the quality of the data that’s actually entered on the forms such as legibility.

ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) presented its December Touch of Class Award to Tiffany McClure, the International Professional Rodeo Association’s 2010 World Champion Barrel Racer, during a private screening of the new Steven Spielberg movie “War Horse” in Washington on Dec. 15. McClure, who grew up in Prince George’s County and graduated from Anne Arundel Community College, was presented with the award by Maryland Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance, Deputy Secretary Mary Ellen Setting, MHIB Chair Jim Steele, Gov. Martin O’Malley’s repre-

sentative Ashley Valis and California Rep. Dennis Cardoza. “We are very pleased that Tiffany was able to fly in from Oklahoma to be here with us tonight and to accept this award not only for her own achievements but as a representative of the best in Maryland’s equine industry,” said Hance. “We thank the Maryland Jockey Club and American Horse Council for hosting this screening and bringing together so many of Maryland’s equine professionals to celebrate Maryland’s horse industry — an important agricultural sector in our state and region.” Last year, McClure,

then a 24-year-old rookie, left her job as a large animal vet assistant, moved to Oklahoma with her horse Dinks Rockin Again, a 10-year-old red roan quarter horse, and joined the rodeo. She jumped to the lead in the rookie category and kept winning her way to the world title her first year on the circuit. To see McClure’s world championship runs, see www.youtube.com/watc h?v=0LmfVKPteP8. McClure was also the American Professional Rodeo Association’s Rookie Barrel Racer of the Year and Rookie Cowgirl of the year. The MHIB’s established the Touch of Class Award in September

2011 to honor a Maryland horse, individual, team, organization or event that demonstrates the highest standard of excellence in the Maryland horse industry. The award is named after Touch of Class, a Maryland-bred mare who won

Horse Section two Olympic show jumping gold medals and currently holds the Olympic record for number of clean jumping rounds in an Olympic competition. Touch of Class is en-

shrined in the U.S. Show Jumping Hall of Fame. For more information about the Maryland Horse Industry Board, visit www.mda.state.md.us/ho rseboard.

CAMP HILL, PA — Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) expressed concerns over proposed rules on animal disease traceability through written comments sent to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack. One of Farm Bureau’s major concerns with the new Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) proposal is that it actually calls for a step backward by regressing to outdated technology, limiting the ability of farmers to use more effective animal tracking procedures. “Pennsylvania already has a rather sophisticated electronic database system to track animals

and has a history of high compliance with USDA’s past identification programs. In fact, Pennsylvania is widely considered a national leader in animal disease surveillance. We seriously question a proposal to turn back the clock to using a paper-based system when the current electronic system works so well in Pennsylvania,” said PFB President Carl T. Shaffer. Farm Bureau is also concerned that the proposed rules would negatively impact Pennsylvania’s thriving cattle export industry, which successfully utilizes radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to efficiently and reliably

track cattle and provide disease traceability information. When an RFID tag is scanned, it sends information directly to a computer, minimizing paperwork and the chance of human error in writing down a tag number. “We support a voluntary national identification system, but we are leery of making changes that would use older technology, which will increase costs through additional time-consuming paperwork and the hiring of more staff,” added Shaffer. In its comments, PFB wrote that it concurs with comments and concerns offered by the American Farm Bureau

Federation. Some of those concerns focus on the shortage of accredited veterinarians to provide certificates of animal inspections, the importance of ensuring data privacy and producer

confidentiality and that program costs are equitable between producers, the industry, USDA and other agencies. “Farm Bureau looks forward to continuing its working relationship

with USDA in developing an efficient and workable Animal Disease Traceability Plan and in protecting and maintaining animal health,” concluded Shaffer.

Young leaders complete Phase I of leadership development training The 2012 class of American Soybean Association (ASA)/DuPont Young Leaders met at Pioneer headquarters in Johnston, Iowa, to participate in Phase I of leadership development training. The producers and their spouses participated in media training, advocacy and social media training, communication style analysis, tours

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE American Farm Bureau Federation A storm of estate taxes threatens farm country by Lynne Finnerty Two recent news reports contained troubling year-end news for farm families. Farmland values are booming. Minnesota farmland prices are nearly 30 percent higher than a year ago, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. It’s a similar catastrophe in Iowa where, an Iowa State University survey shows, high corn and soybean prices have driven average farmland values to a new record of almost $7,000 per acre. I know what you’re thinking: “Isn’t that good news for farmland owners?” Well, yes, it is good news. That is, unless the farm family patriarch or matriarch dies after December 2012, when current estate tax relief will end. Higher farmland values mean that more people will face the difficult task of figuring out how to pay the estate tax and keep the farm in the family — without having to sell land or other assets needed to farm. Estate tax relief would have expired last year, but Congress passed a bill to set the exemption at $5 million and the top tax rate at 35 percent for two years. Unless Congress extends the exemp-

tion and rates, or even better, eliminates the estate tax, a $1 million exemption and a top tax rate of 55 percent will kick in on Jan. 1, 2013. Farm families will be outside the exemption on as few as 143 acres in Iowa, where the average farm size is about 330 acres. In Minnesota, the transfer of just 166 acres from one generation to the next will come with a tax bill of hundreds of thousands of dollars. For all the talk these days about buying local food from family farmers, you’d think that keeping farms in the family would be a top priority for Congress. But if estate tax relief expires, then it’s almost certain that some of today’s farm families will be selling land rather than selling corn and tomatoes at the local farmers’ market or grain at the local elevator. Some are able to avoid the tax through savvy planning. But, the cost of estate tax planning, an ongoing endeavor due to changes in farm structure and tax law, is a heavy burden on a farmer’s bottom line in a time of high production costs. While farm income rose 28 percent this year, production expenses rose 12 percent to $320 billion. Some agricultural experts

warn that increases in costs for feed, fertilizer and fuel — and land — could outpace increases in farm income after 2013, due to the cyclical nature of crop profitability. They advise farmers and ranchers to save now for the rainy days ahead, something that’s easier to do if you don’t have to pay lawyers and estate tax planners. Today’s record-breaking farmland values should indeed be good news for farmers, but the threat of estate taxes to their families’ ability to continue their agricultural heritage puts a damper on things. Farmland values combined with the expiration of estate tax relief and the aging of America’s farmers and ranchers forecast a perfect storm that could leave fewer farms in business to feed their communities and our nation. Congress needs to take action early next year to stop this gathering storm. Lynne Finnerty is editor of FBNews, the American Farm Bureau Federation’s official newspaper.

Virginia Tech faculty members honored at National FFA Convention BLACKSBURG, VA — The National FFA Organization honored Virginia Tech faculty members Alan McDaniel and Dave Winston, both of Blacksburg, at its national convention, held in Indianapolis. McDaniel received the National FFA VIP Award and Winston was awarded the Honorary American FFA degree. “The VIP citation recognizes the dedicated individuals who contribute to the FFA mission of student success through their hard work and cooperation,” said National FFA Organization CEO Dwight Armstrong. “Without such strong and outstanding commitment, FFA would not be able to help build strong character in its members, who in turn build strong families, communities and industries.” McDaniel has been a horticulture professor for more than 25 years in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He has taught classes in floral design, controlled plant environment and vegetable crops and has served as an academic advisor for numerous students. The National FFA VIP Award is one of the most prestigious honors given by the organization. Winston is the 4-H dairy specialist for Virginia Cooperative Extension and has been teaching at Virginia Tech since 1994. He has also been the advisor for the Dairy Club for the past 14 years and is vice chairman of the National 4-H Dairy Conference Planning Committee. The Honorary American FFA Degree is given to teachers who have created high-quality agriculture education programs that inspire and motivate students. “I am very fortunate to continue to work with FFA members in dairy-related activities,” Winston said. “I was humbled and honored by this recognition from the organization that has been so instrumental in my life.” McDaniel received his bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University and his doctorate from the University of TennesseeKnoxville. Winston received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Virginia Tech. The National FFA Organization uses agricultural education pro-

grams to promote leadership, scholarship, personal growth and career success in the lives of students. The organization supports local and state FFA associations through research and support.

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — Dairy producers and their employees can improve their calf raising and heifer management skills at two different workshops organized by Penn State Extension and offered at sites across the commonwealth, January through March. The Calf Health and Management Workshop will focus on calf care for animals from birth through 6 months of age. Colostrum management, calf health, vaccines for

calves and younger heifers, calf and weaned calf housing, and calf and weaned calf nutrition are among the topics to be explored. Animal well-being issues will also be discussed. The Heifer Management Workshop explores all factors necessary to effectively and efficiently manage a successful heifer program. The emphasis is on animal wellbeing as it relates to management of heifer nutrition, health and vaccination programs,

reproduction and synchronization, and housing systems. “These workshops are for managers or employees who manage, care and feed calves and heifers,” explains Dr. Jud Heinrichs, professor of dairy and animal science at Penn State, who will be one of the workshop instructors. “Calves and heifers are the future of a dairy farm and their health growth, and wellbeing are important to the success of the dairy.” Other workshop in-

structors include Dr. Ernest Hovingh, Dr. Robert Van Saun, and Dr. David Wolfgang, Penn State Extension veterinarians; and John Tyson and Dan McFarland, Penn State Extension engineers. Each one-day workshop will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on these dates at the following sites: Calf Health and Management Workshop • Mifflin County: Jan. 24, Penns Valley Christian Retreat, McVeytown,

PA; and • Blair County: Jan. 31, The Park at Morrison's Cove, Martinsburg, PA.

A look ahead to 2012 by Bob Gray As we move into the new year it is important to take a quick look back on what happened in 2011: Reform of Dairy Policy: We have gotten off to a good start here with the House and Senate leadership support of the Dairy Security Act. It is something we can build on in 2012. Agriculture Immigration Reform: A mixed bag but we have to keep pushing. Any kind of immigration reform legislation is not likely to pass in 2012. However there may be some administrative remedies that can help in the short run. Environmental Regulations: The good news is that we have the attention of our Members of Congress in helping to thwart the over-zealous regulatory efforts of EPA. The pushback has helped to stop and slow down some onerous regulations that have been proposed by the agency. On the downside, EPA continues to push forward on new and more stringent regulations — and legislation to stop these efforts

has often been bottled up in the Senate. Agriculture Program Funding: There is no question that there will be continued cuts in many USDA program such as Conservation, Rural Development and Energy. For the current fiscal year (FY2012), the EQIP program which supports projects at the farm level for manure management actually received an increase in funding over last year’s level. However more cuts in USDA programs are expected in the near future and we will need to make sure animal agriculture receives its fair share of funding. Increasing Truck Weights on Interstate Highways: There may well be a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel on this as support has been building in Congress to give states the authority to increase truck weights on their interstate highways — if they opt to do so — all of which will mean greater efficiency in hauling, and less truck traffic on state and local highways. Marcellus Shale Development: We want to re-

main as the clearing house for information on this vital issue. It is an issue that will be part of the landscape for years and years to come. We intend to continue to keep everyone informed. Trade: Good news with the ratification of the South Korea, Columbia and Panama

See hundreds of exhibitors of all type of farm equipment and services

by Tracy Taylor Grondine They say that charity starts at home. And for nearly 15,000 people in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond, that sentiment was wholeheartedly felt in early December as they laid wreaths on graves in Arlington Cemetery. In the true meaning of Christmas, people from all walks of life joined together to honor nearly 100,000 of America’s fallen heroes. The effort, known as Wreaths Across America, was started by Farm Bureau member Morrill Worcester in 1992. Worcester, who owns a wreath company in Harrington, ME, had extra wreaths at the close of that holiday season and wanted to put them to good use. His idea was to honor America’s soldiers buried at Arlington Cemetery. And, as good deeds are contagious, once word got around about Worcester’s goal, others from the community joined in to make it a reality. A local trucking company stepped in to transport the wreaths, volunteers gathered to decorate them with red ribbons and even more people joined forces to place them on older graves that were becoming less and less visited. That was nearly 20 years ago. Today, through the nonprofit 501c3 Worcester formed in 2007 to expand the program, national and state cemeteries also receive Worcester wreaths — nearly 600 locations in the U.S. and beyond. Further, during the annual pilgrim-

age from Harrington to Arlington, the Wreaths Across America organization makes pit stops at schools, veterans’ organizations and cemeteries to teach, honor and remember. Seeing the police-escorted caravan of tractor trailers transporting the wreaths down the highway is a sight to behold. In 2011, Americans from far and wide came by the busloads, in carpools, by Metro and on foot to Arlington Cemetery. There were so many volunteers wanting to help out that wreaths became scarce. And that’s a good thing. What was even more special was the amount of time people spent at individual gravesites reading the headstones and talking with their children about the sacrifices of those soldiers. Because of the generous donation of wreaths and volunteer manpower, many gravesites are decorated, from those in the older section of the cemetery to those that are but a few months old. And Wreaths Across America is hoping to more than double its number of wreaths in 2012 to ensure more fallen soldiers are remembered during the holiday season. It’s people like Morrill Worcester, who gave something that was so much more than just surplus wreaths, who represent the true spirit of Christmas — that of giving, remembering and honoring. It just happens that sometimes the holiday spirit is made even more special when it’s wrapped in balsam and tied with a red ribbon.

A farm bill in an election year? by Bob Gray Well, nothing is easy legislatively these days and going back to square one on the Farm Bill next year is going to be very interesting. Not only is it a Presidential election year, the entire House of Representatives and a third of the Senate will be up for re-election. There are certainly a lot of questions that will have to be answered. For example, will the $23 billion in cuts proposed by House and Senate Agriculture Committee leadership to the Deficit Reduction Committee still be in order ... or will a new budget

baseline have to be established? Since the Farm Bill process that took place in the hectic weeks leading up to the failure of the Super Committee on Nov. 23 was less than transparent, many members of the Agriculture Committees want to start over. Timeliness in getting a Farm Bill done will be very important. If the process drags on into next summer with the Presidential and Congressional elections looming in November the Farm Bill could well be put off until 2013. So it is going to be very interesting!

Team mac ‘n’ cheese with holiday leftovers Macaroni and cheese is, without doubt, one of America’s most popular comfort foods. It’s quite adaptable and can be served as a festive side to roast beef, lamb or pork, chicken or turkey. It’s also the perfect partner to enjoy with that leftover holiday ham, and travels well, too, for tailgate or bring-a-dish gatherings. Its roots here are in the South, and was first served at a White House dinner hosted by Thomas Jefferson. His cousin Mary Randolph help to popularize it with a mention in her cookbook “The Virginia Housewife,” published in 1824. The macaroni dish featured here is simple to prepare using a mixture of three distinct cheeses, and has an incredible rich, creamy texture, thanks to a combination of Jarlsberg and American cheese. The fresh goat cheese adds just the right touch of delicious tangy flavor. While a curly pasta version is pictured, you also can use classic elbow. With so many tasty possibilities, don’t feel limited to the variations suggested below.

Three cheese macaroni 2 cups (8 ounces) elbow macaroni or other curly pasta 1/2 stick butter, divided 1/3 cup unseasoned fine dry breadcrumbs 1/2 teaspoon paprika 3 tablespoons flour 3 cups milk 1 4-ounce log soft Chevrai (unripened goat cheese) 2 cups coarsely shredded Jarlsberg cheese 1 cup diced American cheese 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 2-quart round ovenproof casserole dish. Cook pasta until al dente; transfer to colander and drain. 2. In same pasta pot over very low heat, melt butter; remove from heat. Measure off 2 tablespoons butter and, in small bowl, combine with breadcrumbs and paprika. Set aside. 3. Return pot to heat. Blend in flour and simmer until bubbly (1 minute). Gradually whisk in milk, goat cheese and shredded Jarlsberg. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is creamy-smooth and thickens slightly. Return pasta to pot and toss

until coated; mix in diced cheese. 4. Transfer to prepared casserole dish and sprinkle with buttered breadcrumbs. If desired, sprinkle with additional paprika. Bake 30 minutes or until center is bubbly-hot and crumbs are golden. Serves 8 to 10. VARIATIONS When combining pasta with cheese sauce, fold in: • 2 cups cooked small shrimp or shredded cooked chicken (or 1 can of tuna) with 1 cup frozen petite peas. • 2 cups small cubes of chorizo, kielbasa or ham, with 1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes. Instead of buttered breadcrumb topping, use crushed, lightly salted tortilla chips. • 2 cups small broccoli florets and 1 cup each (cooked, well drained) lean, chopped beef and chopped mushrooms. • 2 cups cooked crumbled bacon or prosciutto and 1/4 cup fig jam.

A handy guide to storage of food gifts ‘Tis the season to receive delicious food gifts such as sausage, cheese and hams, says Londa Nwadike, the University of Vermont Extension food safety specialist. If you receive a gift of food this holiday season, ensure quality and safety by following the storage guidelines listed below. • Cans or jars of meat: Check the label to determine if refrigeration is required. If so, it can generally be refrigerated for six to nine months unopened. If refrigeration is not required, the unopened product can be stored for up to two years (However, the sooner you consume it, the better the quality will be.) After opening, you can store the product safely in the refrigerator for three to four days. • Country ham: If unsliced, dry-cured ham is shelfstable for one year. If sliced, ham may be refrigerated for two to three months. Once cooked, it can be refrigerated for three to five days. • Sausage: Dry fermented sausage that is NOT labeled “keep refrigerated” can be stored unopened at room temperature for four to six weeks or in the refrigerator for up to six months. Once opened, sausage will keep about two weeks in the refrigerator. If the package says “refrigerate,” keep the product refrigerated and use it within three weeks once opened. • Turkey: Frozen uncooked turkey can be stored in the freezer for up to six months without loss of qual-

ity or safety. Otherwise, refrigerate for use within one to two days. • Game birds: If raw, store in the refrigerator no more than one or two days before cooking, or three days after cooking. Frozen birds will keep up to one year in the freezer. • Cheese: Most hard or processed cheeses can be safely stored unopened for three to six months in the refrigerator and three to four months if opened. • Nuts: Refrigerate after opening to preserve freshness and prevent rancidity. Nuts also may be frozen for up to a year after opening to retain quality and freshness.

Comfort foods made fast and healthy by Healthy Exchanges

Leftover turkey and pear salad After all the dishes are washed and the leftovers are put away, you’re probably wondering how you’ll use up the leftover turkey. Well, wonder no more! Here’s a wonderful “winter” main-dish salad just waiting for you to stir up for lunch. 3 cups shredded romaine lettuce 1 1/2 cups diced cooked turkey breast 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup unpeeled and diced Bartlett pears 1/3 cup fat-free blue cheese salad dressing 3 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise In a large bowl, combine romaine lettuce, turkey, walnuts and pears. In a small bowl, combine blue cheese dressing and mayonnaise. Drizzle dressing mixture evenly over salad mixture. Toss gently to combine. Serve at once. Makes 4 (1 full cup) servings. Each serving equals: 231 calories, 7g fat, 20g protein, 22g carb., 267mg sodium, 3g fiber; Diabetic Exchanges: 2 Meat, 1 Fat, 1/2 Vegetable, 1/2 Fruit. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Trace minerals play an important role in immune function, fertility and growth of cattle. Given the fact that high producing dairy cows have increased trace minerals needs during the transition period, the pre-treatment of cows with Multimin®90 is important. The objective of a recent Cornell University study was to evaluate the effect of subcutaneous pre-treatment of Multimin®90 containing Zn, Mn, Se, and Cu (Multimin North America Inc., Fort Collins, CO) at drying-off, 30 days before calving and 35 days after calving on health traits, milk production and reproductive performance of 1,416 lactating Holstein cows on three large commercial dairy farms. Although the three dairy herds in this study had both dry-off and milking diets that met or exceeded the NRC recommendations for trace minerals, subcutaneous supplementation of trace minerals could be justified due to the presumable higher trace minerals needs that the cow has to cope with during the transition period. Multimin®90 pre-treatment supports an existing well designed oral feed program where the intake of trace minerals in the oral diet can be negatively affected by: • Antagonists in feed, water, forage and distillers grains; • Variable feed intake by individual cows/heifers; • Dominance in herd; • Overcrowding of bunk space; • Factors causing loss of appetite; • Stress reducing their trace mineral retention ability; and • Parturition and beginning of lactation where higher levels of trace minerals are critical for immu-

nity and reproductive efficiency. The most remarkable effect of trace minerals supplementation in this study was on udder health. The trial data from Cornell University indicates that Multimin®90 pre-treated cows had: • Decreased somatic cell count from 299 660 to 218 964; • The incidence of subclinical mastitis was reduced from 10,4 percent to 8,0 percent; • The incidence of clinical mastitis in multiparous cows was reduced from 25, 4 percent to 19, 7 percent; • Decreased incidence of endometritis from 34,2 percent to 28,6 percent; and • Decreased incidence of stillbirth from 6, 1 percent to 4, 3 percent. In conclusion, the administration of three subcutaneous trace mineral injections (at dry-off, 30 days prepartum, and 35 days postpartum) could be a useful strategy, especially for farms with known serious udder health problems.

Based on these results from the Cornell University, the University of Florida concluded that using Multimin®90 increased yearly revenues with milk sales and calf sales and decreased the cost with clinical mastitis even though it had additional cost of purchase and administration of Multimin®90. As expected, cow sales income, feed cost, breeding cost, replacement cost and other cost were not different. Most of the economic benefit was from milk sales and although variation in the milk bonus for reducing somatic cell count greatly affects the overall profit, a bonus of $0,1/cwt and $0,3/cwt resulted in a $34 and $92 /cow/year profit respectively, when using Multimin®90. Trial data of University of Idaho also indicated that injecting day old Holstein calves with Multimin®90 is a safe way of pre-treating calves with Zinc, Selenium, Manganese and Copper since cow’s milk is a poor source of trace minerals.

Pennsylvania’s own Kencove brings fencing to the Farm Show Indiana County company to showcase array of fence supplies at Keystone Farm Show BLAIRSVILLE, PA — Kencove Farm Fence Supplies has been part of the flourishing Pennsylvania agribusiness industry for over 30 years. Naturally, the company wouldn’t miss the chance to interact with the thousands of attendees expected for the 2012 Keystone Farm Show, one of the marquee events on the Pennsylvania agribusiness calendar. The company from Blairsville, Indiana County will travel east to the York Fairgrounds with a plethora of fencing gadgetry and materials in tow. Visitors to booths W318 and W319 can expect to see everything from hydraulic post drivers, electric fence energizers, hightensile wire, composite fence posts and portable electric netting on display. Kencove will also have on hand its latest innovation, the Solar Dolly™, a handcart designed to house a solarpowered electric fencing system. “Fences aren’t always the first thing on farmers’ minds, but a well-built and functioning fence is truly important,” said Bonita Whalen, a Kencove product specialist. “They don’t just make

for good neighbors but also increase the value of your property and protect the value of livestock and crops.” Visitors to Kencove’s booths can also expect plenty of free advice and literature courtesy of the product specialists. “Getting the chance to answer people’s questions is my favorite part of these shows,” Whalen said. “I’ve made many friends and loyal customers over the years just by helping someone fix a basic problem with their fences. You also learn new tips and techniques that you didn’t know existed.” The Keystone Farm Show runs from Jan. 3 to 5 at the York Fairgrounds in York, PA. About Kencove Kencove Farm Fence Supplies is a family-owned, nationwide distributor of high-tensile, electric, woven-wire and horse fence systems, along with solar fencing and rotational grazing supplies.

Help is here for livestock manure odor and nutrient management problems ElectroCell Technologies, booth No. 705 and outside at No. 722 at the Keystone Farm Show, has a solution for you. The company provides a simple, effective BioElectric treatment program that’s been proven in nine states to solve your unhappy neighbor issues and manage your nutrient plan more efficiently. There are many more ways to disrupt your livestock raising business these days than there were before. Neighbors are upset about nuisance odors as they gain more access and status in township hearings on new permits and those up for renewal or expansion. Nutrient management plans can force you to find new ground to spread your manure at great cost in both time and money. The people at ElectroCell Technologies can provide you with a treatment service plan to treat your manure at your farm that will have your neighbors literally playing with their kids and pets outside right next to fields where liquid manure was spread moments before. Sound too good to be true? Heard all this before about pit additives that solve odor problems that didn’t really work? Talk to hog farmer Dale Nolt, located in Mannheim, PA. Dale is a proponent of good community relations. When a new housing development dropped into a field adjacent to his

cropland, Dale took it upon himself to control any potential issues with his new neighbors regarding odors they may smell for several days after manure was applied to his fields. These folks were new and not used to having agriculture next door and had little experience with the periodic land application of manure. His solution was to host community days with the neighborhood at his farm: offer hay rides, pig roasts, bible studies and “chore days.” Another way he has bolstered this relationship was by researching innovative ways to reduce some of his agricultural odors. So Dale looked into the ElectroCell treatment program through some fellow farms that had used the service and he found out about the “try before you buy” deal they offer. If it doesn’t work the first time, quantified by independent lab analysis, you don’t pay a thing and it ends there. If it does work, your odor problems are solved and ElectroCell comes on your farm for a few days two or three times a year, depending on your needs. You only pay for the service, no equipment costs. And what were his neighbor’s reactions? “Amazing,” said Dale, “People were out playing with their kids and pets in back yards that go right up to my field, they didn’t smell a thing!” Big changes also happened at James

Help from 9 Snavely’s farm in Elizabethtown. Not only were odors eliminated, but James petitioned Lancaster County Conservation District and was allowed to apply the 50 percent of manure he had been forced to export because of high levels of phosphorous and nitrogen back on his home ground, saving him time and money. The technology not only kills the pathogens that create nuisance odors, it also reduced his land applied N by up to 50 percent and P by up to 90 percent. Even with reduced levels, the treatments convert the pit to being aerobic and the remaining nutrients are plant

available. Crop yields increased and pesticide use dropped as the farm converted to no till. “Happy neighbors, lower costs and increased yields have really changed our operation for the better,” says James. And on top of that, ElectroCell is certified by PA DEP to generate nutrient credits for the Chesapeake Bay program, and has sold credits from Snavely Farms, putting more cash in James’ pocket. Stop by the ElectroCell booth at the Keystone Farm Show, No. 705, to see their BioElectric treatment machine and learn how your farm could benefit from using their service.

Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® Program reaches one millionth participant Milestone reached in farm safety and health education effort We all hear the horror stories of losing a loved one to a farm-related incident. The families left behind ponder what would have happened “if only.” If only he had been more careful, if only she wasn’t in such a hurry, if only we had known. Moved by stories of farming-related tragedies, Jack Odle, editor of The Progressive Farmer, launched an effort in 1995 to help prevent unintentional death on the farm. This effort evolved to become the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® Program. Now in its 17th year, the effort has reached its onemillionth participant and is continuing the mission of eliminating farm injury and death by providing education and training to make farm, ranch and rural life safer and healthier for children and their communities through its Safety Day program. Penn State Extension Children and Youth Development educator Jana Davidson hosted the one-millionth Safety Day participant on Sept. 14, in Clearfield, PA. “Hosting this event is probably my favorite day of the year,” said David-

son. “(The kids) are getting so much education, but they’re having so much fun! The impact is huge. From the staff to the national sponsors, they’re helping us do what we couldn’t do alone at a local level.” 2011 marks Davidson’s fifth Safety Day, which started with 75 kids and has now grown to over 200 at each event. Today, Safety Days are made possible by the Progressive Agriculture Foundation® (PAF), an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit with a board of directors from within the agriculture industry and an operating budget of $2.6 million. The program’s curriculum has grown from basic farm safety to also include a focus on rural issues like hunting, ATV usage and even childhood obesity. While the Foundation’s leadership is proud to hit the millionth participant mark, they stress there is still much to be done. PAF hopes to reach its second-millionth participant within the next 10 years. “The number of children injured each year on farms has declined 59 percent since 1998, but there were still 15,012 farm injuries to children reported in 2009,” says Bob Marshall, of Bunge North America and PAF board

president. “We view even one injury as one too many. The educational outreach of the Safety Day program is one of the efforts that has made this decline possible. We plan to work hard to do even more in the coming 10 years with the generous support of our many new and long-term sponsors who donate both financially and with employee resources.” In addition to loyal sponsors, the program is largely made possible by a volunteer base that contributes time and skills to help run individual Safety Day events. “We can’t thank our volunteers enough,” says Susan Reynolds, executive director — programs for PAF. “We would not be able to reach as many children as we do without their gifts of time and resources.” In 2011 alone, approximately 18,000 volunteers have helped with PAF efforts. As many as 230,000 volunteers have helped throughout the last 17 years. The core mission of the Safety Day program is simple: to keep children safe and healthy. By focusing on topics that are relevant to children in rural areas, the Safety Day program has successfully reached over 1 million children and volunteers, and averages

400 Safety Day events a year, all over North America and the U.S. territories. Davidson continued, “I can’t say enough good things about PAF. This is a program I truly believe in. Reaching 1 million participants is a milestone, and I look forward to helping PAF continue to reduce farm incidents and death among children and in our communities.” For more information about PAF and to support the cause, go to www.progressiveag.org.
