First direct export of Virginia Holstein bulls to Russia announced RICHMOND, VA — Gov. Bob McDonnell today announced that the first ever direct export of Virginia Holstein bulls to Russia has been completed. Vistar Farms of Mechanicsville, working in partnership with Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) international marketing staff, arranged the export shipment to the Russian port city of Novorossiysk. Financial details of the initial sale were private, but the export deal is significant as it marks Virginia’s entry into Russia’s growing market for cattle and genetics imports. “I have made increasing agricultural exports from Virginia a key component of my administration’s overall economic development and job creation plans,” said McDonnell, who has included an amendment to his proposed budget to the General Assembly that provides additional funds to market and promote Virginia agricultural products in the global marketplace. “Opening new markets for our high quality and diversified portfolio of agricultural products is important for current farm profitability and future growth and prosperity.” Despite the lack of cattle exports, Russia was Virginia’s ninth largest agricultural export customer in 2010 with just under $60 million in products. Russia has allowed the importation of U.S. cattle since 2008 when the two countries reached an import protocol agreement. In addition to Vistar’s and VDACS’ work with the Russian importer, the initial shipment from Virginia took the combined effort of

other state and federal partners to ensure that the transaction was completed successfully. The Animal Plant Health Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture helped expedite export documents. The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality managed the certification process that allowed the bulls to be quarantined before shipment per protocol specifications. Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Todd P. Haymore added, “This deal is a good match for Virginia dairy cattle exporters and Russian importers. Virginia’s dairy industry is known internationally for producing high quality genetics, and Russia is rapidly becoming one of the most active markets for live cattle exports. We expect additional export sales to Russia in the coming months, further building relationships between Virginia exporters and Russia importers and solidifying what we hope becomes a new and successful long-term export market.” The Russian market for live animal imports is growing, and is currently valued at more than $300 million annually. In 2009, Russia imported 35,000 live cattle and in 2010 the number rose to 38,000. Last year, Russia imported approximately 55,000 live cattle, with Russian buyers finding quality animals being offered from new U.S. suppliers. After the protocol was established to begin exporting live cattle to Russia in 2008, the U.S. now accounts for approximately $10 million of live cattle business in Russia.

Checking other key players, Michigan was up 4.2 percent on a 30pound gain per cow and 9,000 more cows. Missouri recorded the biggest loss, down 1.7 percent despite a 10pound gain per cow. Cow numbers were down 2,000 head. New Mexico was up 2 percent, thanks to 13,000 more cows but output per cow was down 40 pounds. Texas was up 4.1 percent, thanks to 15,000 more cows but output per cow was off 10 pounds. Washington State saw a healthy 4.7 percent gain in milk production on 11,000 more cows and 5 pounds more per cow. Meanwhile; the cash dairy markets had little reaction. Block cheese closed the last Friday of January on an up note at $1.51 per pound, up a half-cent on the week, but 22 1/2-cents below that week a year ago when they jumped 21

cents to $1.7350. The barrels closed Friday at $1.4950, down three quarters on the week and 21 cents below a year ago when they gained 19 1/2 and were trading at $1.7050. Eight cars of block found new homes on the week and 25 of barrel, with 20 coming on Friday morning. The NASS-surveyed U.S. average block price hit $1.5899, up 1.8 cents, while the barrels averaged $1.6053, down 0.3 cent. Butter saw more weakness, closing Friday at $1.55, down 2 cents on the week and 55 cents below a year ago. Only one car was sold all week. NASS butter averaged $1.5923, up a penny. NASS powder averaged $1.3654, down a nickel, and dry whey averaged 71.13 cents, up yet another 0.9 cent.

No Shortage of Milk on the Horizon Issued Jan. 27, 2012 U.S. dairy cows keep producing thanks to a mild winter and expanding numbers. The Agri-

2010. The 50-state total, at 16.559 billion, was up 2.5 percent. 2011 output in the 50 states was estimated at 196.216 billion pounds, up 1.8 percent. December cow numbers in the 23 states totaled 8.49 million head, up 12,000 from November and 99,000 more than a year ago. Output per cow averaged 1,818 pounds, up 27 pounds from a year ago. California was up 3.8

Mielke from 5 sharp price decline, it could knock Class III prices down unless an offsetting increase in cheese prices occurs, which is unlikely.” December 31 butter stocks stood at 105.2 million pounds, according to USDA’s January 20 Cold Storage report, up 12 percent from November and 29 percent above December 2010. Market analysts viewed the overall data as bearish for both butter and cheese. FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks stated in the January 23 Insider Opening Bell that “December can be a swing month on butter stocks.” He reported that stocks were down in six of the last 10 Decembers when compared with November levels but butter stocks built more than expected and are stronger than a year ago

on a percentage basis. “They are not burdensome,” he said, but warned; “With more product coming out of the Southern Hemisphere, U.S. exports of butterfat have slowed and more butter has moved into storage.” American cheese stocks totaled 600.7 million pounds, up 3 percent from November but 5 percent below a year ago. The total cheese inventory, at 981.3 million, was up just 1 percent from November and 6 percent below a year ago. Stewart Peterson’s Matt Mattke blamed rising cheese inventories for the price weakness in Tuesday’s DairyLine. He said stocks are up abnormally on a weekly basis and up 7 1/2-percent from a year ago, but down on the month. The weekly buildup however

leads him to believe that stocks will be up on the month as well. The big question, he asks; is the buildup due to supply as milk output climbs or have exports taken a hit due to the rallying U.S. dollar to a recent 15 month high. Cheese production remains steady for this time of year and inventories are expanding for most varieties, according to USDA. Orders for aged sharp Cheddar remain good ahead of the Super Bowl. Demand for mozzarella has improved as colleges and universities start spring semesters. Analyst Jerry Dryer wrote in his January 20 Dairy and Food Market Analyst; “A growing chorus of voices now say the market will press down to the low $1.40s and this seems like a distinct possibility. While buyers are

waiting, cows are enjoying a mild winter; there is plenty of milk, cheese and butter available.” He adds that “There is; however, some inventory building underway and the pace will pick up as prices continue to move further south. Current prices are also fairly attractive internationally. The only unanswered question: When will inventory building and commercial orders pick up enough to put a floor under the price?” But, California’s Milk Producer’s Council is not happy. Its January 20 newsletter quoted Dairy Market News reporters, saying “U.S. cheese production and sales are fairly closely balanced and current prices, which are now well below those in other major exporting countries, are attracting continuing in-

terest from exporters.” USDA says commercial disappearance of all cheese is greater than production this year so MPC asks; “Why have prices moved lower at the CME?” “Most people who follow this market know the answer,” wrote MPC, “It is because of how the CME Spot Price market works. Cheese and butter price movements over shortterm periods seem to defy logic, common sense, and basic economic theory, unlike any of the other

sound markets for very important national and international commodities. It is a “thin” market, dominated by a relatively few traders, used in one way or another by all cheese plants and their customers according to their own respective interests which may be overly influenced by the lucrative cheese by-product industry.” “Call it what you may, whimsical, erratic, thin, unpredictable, useful,” says MPC, “It, along with

by Stewart Truelsen According to Phil Lempert, best known as the Supermarket Guru, “Farmers are becoming the latest food celebrities.” He goes so far as to predict that celebrity chefs are out, celebrity farmers are in. Lempert is an astute food industry observer, journalist and trend watcher. He created a virtual grocery store and consumer information center, Phil’s Supermar-

ket, on Second Life, a rapidly growing online world. If you have time for a second life you might want to check it out. Otherwise there is his website, www.supermarketguru.com. The notion that farmers are becoming celebrities is one of Lempert’s Top Ten Food Trends for 2012. He may have gone a bit too far with this one. Most farmers don’t have time to be celebrities, but they do recog-

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE nize the value in opening lines of communication with consumers. Lempert believes the “farm to fork” journey has become increasingly important. Shoppers want to know where their food comes from. “We’ve seen ‘buy local’ become one of the most important supermarket offerings; now we get to meet the people who are the producers, farmers and ranchers,” he said in describing the trend.

The American Farm Bureau Federation has facilitated this trend with an emphasis on social media. AFBF’s FBLog has opinions and perspectives from the nation’s top producers. Want to know what cold-climate farmers do all winter? It can be found there at www.fb.org/blog. Farm Bureau also reaches out to consumers with Foodie News, an electronic

DEALER FOR RAVEN AND TEE JET GPS PRODUCTS!

American Farm Bureau Federation newsletter that appeals to those most passionate about food and food trends. Individual farms and ranches are represented on Facebook and Twitter and are eager to have friends and followers. For many years farmers have wanted to tell their story to consumers, but it was always hard to reach an urban audience. Print and broadcast media just didn’t get the job done. The only time consumers paid much attention was when food prices were rising or a drought, freeze or some other calamity affected farmers. The growing consumer interest in the “farm to fork journey” and how it is promoted through social media and the Internet is a huge breakthrough for the farming and ranching community, and the trend is only

just beginning. Lempert isn’t the only one noticing the higher profile or celebrity status of farmers and ranchers. One of The Food Channel’s top trends for 2012 is the rise of the agrichef, a new breed of chefs who like to grow their own food. TFC expects this trend to evolve from gardens to fullfledged farms. One thing we know for sure is that growers have reached out to renowned chefs, and they are almost as likely to be on the agenda for a major farm convention as an economist. It’s no secret that people like to visit farmers and ranchers and see firsthand how their food is grown, but it is impossible in today’s world for everyone to do that. Social media connections help make the farm to fork journey possible for more people.

NDE

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?

Huffard’s Dairy, a Jersey milking herd, is located in Crockett, VA. Owners/Operators and brothers Jimmy and John Huffard, shared some thoughts as to their NDE Vertical Mixer. This is the first vertical mixer they have used, and were introduced to the NDE line by another local producer, Robbie Williams, who had purchased his NDE previously from Trissel Equipment. One big benefit is the flexibility of the mixer to uniformly blend in different fiber sources into their rations. In addition, the speed in the processing phase was so much faster than they were used to. They also noted it takes less HP requirements to use this mixer as compared with what they were used to and expected. John noted that their unit featured tandem axles and they were very pleased with their performance. Prior to purchasing their unit, they had been told that vertical mixers didn’t do a good job of cleaning out. What they have seen is just the opposite! They describe it as a near total cleanout and are well pleased with it. They have a heavy duty model that features even heavier metal sides and an extra temper hardened auger. They seem to be well pleased with their decision to purchase an NDE for their operation. They need a mixer that will hold up and last and they expressed Wythe County, VA dairy producers (L-R) Jimmy Huffard, Trey Huffard confidence that this unit would do that.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You Celebrate the sandwich by baking delicious bread (NAPSA) — This year, sandwich lovers are celebrating the 250th anniversary of this handy, delicious meal. Since the best sandwich starts with homemade bread, the best way to launch any celebration is to bake some bread. The 250th anniversary only marks the naming of this classic meal. Bread has been eaten with meat or vegetables since Neolithic times. During the Middle Ages, slabs of bread, called trenchers, were used as plates. Eventually, the sandwich appeared as a latenight meal among the aristocracy. The meal was named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, an 18th century English aristocrat, who in 1762 ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between bread. Others began to order “the same as Sandwich!” Here are some recipes to help you enjoy some classic sandwiches. The whole wheat bread works well with peanut butter and jelly, while the Italian Daily Bread is perfect for a Tuscan Tuna Sandwich. The two bread recipes use Fleischmann’s RapidRise Yeast, which reduces rising time by as much as 50 percent, eliminating the first rise.

100% Whole Wheat Bread Makes: 2 loaves Prep time: 30 minutes Proof time: 30 to 60 minutes Bake time: 35 to 45 minutes 8 to 8 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 2 envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast 2 1/2 teaspoons salt 2 2/3 cups water

2/3 cup milk 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/2 cup wheat bran Combine 3 1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat water, milk, honey and oil until very warm (120˚ to 130˚F). Gradually add to flour mixture; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour and wheat bran; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to 12 x 7-inch rectangle. Beginning at short end of each rectangle, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place, seam sides down, in 2 greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 60 minutes. Bake in preheated 375˚F oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; let cool on wire racks. (Note: To test for doneness, internal temperature of bread should register 190˚F in center of loaf.)

Italian Daily Bread Makes: 2 loaves Prep time: 25 minutes Proof time: 30 to 45 minutes Bake time: 20 to 25 minutes 4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour 2 envelopes Fleischmann’s RapidRise Yeast 2 teaspoons salt

This tasty Tuscan Tuna Sandwich is made with Italian Daily Bread.

1 3/4 cups very warm water (120˚ to 130˚F) 1 tablespoon olive oil Cornmeal 1 egg white beaten with 1 tablespoon water Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough in half; roll each to 15 x 10-inch oval. Roll up tightly from long ends as for jelly roll. Pinch seams and ends to seal; taper ends. Place seam sides down on greased baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Brush surface with egg white mixture. With sharp knife, make 4 or 5 diagonal cuts (1/4-inch deep) on top of each loaf. Bake in preheated 400˚F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. For crisper crusts, brush 2 more times with egg white mixture after 10 or 15 minutes of baking time. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack.

Tuscan Tuna Sandwich 1 can OR pouch (6 to 7 ounces) tuna, packed in water 2 teaspoons capers, drained 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Dill Weed 1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Garlic Powder 3 ounces fresh baby salad greens 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette 8 slices Italian-style bread, grilled or toasted Place tuna, capers, dill weed and garlic powder in a mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add greens and vinaigrette; toss gently. Spread on sliced Italian Daily Bread. For more recipes and baking tips, visit www.breadworld.com.

Strangko A/S Varde, Denmark is now BouMatic A/S BouMatic, global dairy equipment manufacturer, and owner of Strangko A/S, Varde, Denmark announced Strangko A/S has been renamed to BouMatic A/S. “Since BouMatic’s acquisition of Strangko in 2007, we have viewed this as a well-organized business unit in a very strategic region,” explained Robert Luna, President. “Driven by the strength and depth the BouMatic product portfolio, our organization will now have the great legacy of the Strangko brand as a foundation for expanding the BouMatic brand in this region,” Luna added. Strangko A/S was established in 1930 in Varde, Denmark and was acquired by BouMatic in 2007. Developing milking equipment and systems for

dairy markets primarily in northern Europe and Scandinavia, Strangko milking systems have become known for their innovation and dependability and the company’s products are found on dairies throughout the world. “The BouMatic brand and global product portfolio has expanded with the best Strangko products,” Luna said. “This single, fully integrated product offering allows the best products to become stronger behind the established global strength of the BouMatic brand, while giving us more efficiency in manufacturing, operations and technical support,” Luna added. “What matters most however, is the customer,” Luna explained. “Through this integration of products and ex-

pertise, loyal Strangko customers will experience how the new BouMatic A/S lives and applies its mission of creating value through innovative solutions to harvest the highest quality milk, gently, quickly and completely. No other dairy equipment company is more passionate about the dairy cow than BouMatic,” he added. BouMatic is a leader in the development of innovative products for dairy operators throughout the world rang-

ing from cow traffic systems, milk harvest equipment, automation and management systems, milk cooling systems, dairy hygiene and sanitation technologies. Today BouMatic products are found in over 45 countries. The company employs over 400 people worldwide with global headquarters located in Madison, WI, USA.

The American ethanol industry answered the call nearly 30 years ago to provide feedstock for a domestically produced renewable energy source. Today, that same feedstock constitutes more than 10 percent of the nation’s fuel and continues to provide a bountiful supply of corn to our long term customers. “The corn ethanol industry has proven that good government policy sends signals to the market place for producers to increase production and efficiencies. As family corn farmers have risen to the challenge to meet our nation’s energy needs, we are hopeful the direction the President outlined tonight offers similar opportunities for others to expand our energy independence.” Founded in 1957, the National Corn Growers Association represents more than 36,000 dues-paying corn farmers nationwide. NCGA and its 48 affiliated state organizations work together to create and increase opportunities for their members and their industry.

Environmental impacts and benefits of manure: phosphorous and surface water protection Phosphorus and water quality Phosphorous (P) is one of the major bio-available nutrients in manure. In aquatic ecosystems, P is typically the most limiting nutrient. When P is introduced into an aquatic ecosystem there is a marked increase in aquatic plant biomass production and increased algal blooms. The increased aquatic plant production and algal blooms can have a negative effect on the aquatic ecosystem such as tying up other nutrients and decreasing the amount of light infiltration. At the end of the aquatic plant and algae growing cycles, there is a large release of excess nutrients into the ecosystem overwhelming the natural nutrient cycle, tying up oxygen during its degradation leading to fish kills and reducing surface water aesthetic qualities with the accumulation of rotting plant material on the water surface and offensive odors. How does phosphorus travel to water? In cropping systems, providing a sufficient level of P for plant uptake is as important as providing the proper levels of nitrogen (N) and potassium (K). Unlike N and K, P is bound to soil particles

and is at low risk of leaching through the soil profile. The greatest risk of P loss from soils is with overland flow of runoff carrying P-enriched soil sediment or manure particles. Research has shown that soils testing high in P have a greater contribution effect for P loss than soils testing low in P. However, there is a fraction of total P in runoff that is in the dissolved form. The sediment attached P and dissolved P have slightly different impacts in aquatic ecosystems. The sediment attached P contributes to long term P additions to the system whereas the dissolved P is readily available for a high rate of assimilation by aquatic plants and algae. There are also reported cases of soils with extremely high levels of soil

test P that are at risk of P leaching. Typically, soil P is bound tightly to soil particles and has a low risk of leaching. However, in some soils with extremely high soil test P levels, the exchange sites are at maximum capacity, leading to the risk of P leaching. Management practices to reduce environmental risks from phosphorus Cropping system practices that lead to reduced soil erosion are the most effective means of decreasing the risk of offsite movement of P.

sides soil erosion, there are other factors that need to be identified when reducing the risk of P loss from fields. These factors include but are not limited to: • distance to surface water • slope of the landscape • soil erosivity index • soil test P level Many states have adopted a process of ranking the risk of P loss from agricultural fields using a P-index. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has been the lead agency in developing most of the state-by-

state P-indexes. A P-index scores the factors important for off-site movement of P and by using the combined score of these factors a land manager can decide what options are best for managing P application levels to fields when using manure or commercial fertilizer. However, the use of a P-index is only one of the tools available to nutrient managers. When there has been a long history of P mis-management and soil test P levels are extremely high, a P-index or other

tools are not as effective. In these cases, a long term approach looking at the whole cropping and livestock system needs to be adopted. Livestock rations must be closely monitored to ensure there is no P overfeeding, manure may have to be sold or bartered to other land managers, or some type of intensive manure processing system will have to be adopted that will allow for more affordable long distance hauling of the manure.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA is seeking applications to provide assistance to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to complete a variety of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Funding is available from USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) authorized by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Farm Bill). “Renewable energy development presents an enormous economic opportunity for rural America,” said Vilsack. “This funding will assist rural farmers, ranchers and business owners to build renewable energy projects, providing opportunities for new technologies, create green jobs and help America become more energy self-sufficient.” The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) is designed to help agricultural producers and rural small businesses reduce energy costs and consumption and help meet the Nation’s critical energy needs. For 2012, USDA has approximately $25.4 million budget authority available to fund

REAP activities, which will support at least $12.5 million in grant and approximately $48.5 million in guaranteed loan program level awards. USDA is accepting the following applications: • renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement grant applications and combination grant and guaranteed loan applications until March 30, 2012; • renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement guaranteed loan only applications on a continuous basis up to June 29, 2012; • renewable energy system feasibility study applications through March 30, 2012; and • energy audits and renewable energy development assistance applications through Feb. 21, 2012. More information on how to apply for funding is available in the Jan. 20, 2012 Federal Register, pages 2948 through 2954. This funding is an example of the many ways that USDA is helping revitalize rural economies to create opportunities for growth and prosperity, support innovative technologies, identify new markets for agricultural producers, and better utilize our nation’s natural resources. The Obama Administration is working to promote domestic production of renewable energy to create jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, combat global warming, and build stronger rural economy. Today, Americans import just over half of our transportation fuels — down from 60 percent when President Obama took office — but we can do more to meet the President’s goal of reducing our net fuel imports by one-third by 2025. At Secretary Vilsack’s direction, USDA is working to develop the national biofuels industry producing energy from non-food sources in every region of the country. USDA is conducting and encouraging research into innovative new energy technologies

and processes, helping companies build biorefineries — including the first ever commercialscale cellulosic ethanol facilities — and supporting farmers, ranchers, and businesses taking risks to pursue new opportunities in biofuels. Along with Federal partners, USDA is establishing an aviation biofuels economy, and has expedited rules and efforts to promote production and commercialization of biofuels. USDA’s Biorefinery Assistance Program was authorized by Congress under the 2008 Farm Bill. It provides loan guarantees to capitalize on the growing opportunities in renewable energy provided by advanced biofuels. The Program is designed to assist with the commercial deployment of production technologies to produce advanced biofuels, and thereby increase the energy independence of the United States; promote resource conservation, public health, and the environment; diversify markets for agricultural and forestry products and agriculture waste material; create jobs and enhance the economic development of the rural economy. USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, administers and manages housing, business and community infrastructure and facility programs through a national network of state and local offices. Rural Development has an active portfolio of more than $155 billion in affordable loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers, and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America. Further information on rural programs is available at a local USDA Rural Development office or by visiting USDA Rural Development’s website at www.rurdev.usda.gov.

Maryland Horse Industry Board recognizes all time winningest pony sire ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Maryland Horse Industry Board (MHIB) presented its January Touch of Class Award on Jan. 21 to Blue Rain, the U.S. Equestrian Foundation’s (USEF) National Champion Pony Sire from 2004 to 2011, during the Horse World Expo in Timonium. Blue Rain — who is now 23 years old — lives at Springdale Pony Stud in Frederick County and is owned by Allyson Coluccio and Lisa Gordon Carr, who were on hand to accept the award. Blue Rain’s son, Blue Fox, who is 10 years old and also lives at Springdale Ponies, was on hand to accept the award for his dad. “The equine industry in Maryland is not only critical to our state’s economy and conservation efforts, it is also extremely diverse and goes well beyond horse racing,” said Agriculture Deputy Secretary Mary Ellen Setting, who helped present the award. “Blue Rain and Springdale Ponies represent one of the many facets of this important Maryland industry. We are very pleased to be able to recognize them for achieving and maintaining national championship status for eight years.” Blue Rain, a Welsh pony thoroughbred, was originally purchased at age 2 for a small pony hunter show career; however, an eye injury in the pasture a year later kept him out of the show ring. Instead, Blue Rain became a pony stallion who has produced more champion hunter ponies than any other pony sire in history. Hunter ponies

are bred for sport, such as jumping, cross country and fox hunting; however, they are also bred of the show ring. “Blue Rain’s reputation within the pony sire sector is nothing short of legendary, but he is hardly a household name in Maryland,” said MHIB Chairman Jim Steele. “It is our hope that this Touch of Class award will bring attention to the exceptionally high quality of professionalism within Maryland’s horse industry and to give long overdue recognition to two Maryland champions — Blue Rain and Springdale Ponies.” The MHIB established the Touch of Class Award in September 2011 to honor Maryland horses, individuals, teams, organizations or events that demonstrate the highest standards of excellence in the Maryland horse industry. The award is named after Touch of Class, a Maryland-bred mare who won two Olympic show jumping gold medals and currently holds the Olympic record for number of clean jumping rounds in an Olympic competition. Past Touch of Class winners include: • Graham Motion, who won the 2011 Kentucky Derby with Animal Kingdom and ranks as one the nation’s leading trainers of Thoroughbred racehorses. Motion trains his horses in Cecil County. • Colleen Rutledge and her horse Shiraz, who were the third highest-placed U.S. horse and rider combination at the prestigious Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in England and are under con-

Named 2012 Seedstock Breeder of the Year The Pennsylvania State University’s Department of Dairy and Animal Science (DAS) was recognized with the Pennsylvania Angus Association’s 2011 Seedstock Breeder of the Year Award at their annual banquet held during the Pennsylvania Farm Show on Jan. 8. The award was accepted by Wendall Landis, Beef and Sheep Complex Manager in DAS. The award recognizes a centurylong tradition of Angus cattle at Penn State, as well as its ongoing efforts to produce elite Angus seedstock for breeders while educating both students and producers and conducting relevant research that is of benefit to animal agriculture. “This recognition is a tribute to the exceptional contributions of the livestock program we have in the College of Agricultural Sciences,” said Dr. Terry Etherton, head of the Department of Dairy and Animal Science. “We continue a proud 100 year legacy of successful breeding, as well as conducting extension, teaching and research programs that are led by remarkably dedicated and talented faculty and staff. I congratulate all those associated with this outstanding program, and espe-

cially commend Wendall Landis for the committed leadership and guidance he provides.” Alumni of the department’s beef cattle program continue to have major impacts on the national seedstock industry, providing valuable leadership as owners, mangers and herdsmen in addition to serving as executive directors, CEOs and directors of national breed associations, A.I. studs, and branded beef programs. The recent and continuing primary research emphasis has been projects dealing with intensive grazing, fencing, and wintering systems; refinement of estrus synchronization schemes; and herd and breed genetic improvement. Earlier research conducted at Penn State included work on determining growth and carcass traits of beef sires, with the early programs being labeled as certified Meat Sire programs. Other important research centered on the inheritance of the scur and polled gene which are more important in breeds that carried the horned gene. The undergraduate program offers first-hand marketing experience via a beef merchandising class, offered every two to three years since 1979. The annual production sale is an intense and engaging learning activity for students;

in 2011 they organized the 100th Anniversary Production Sale. Angus cattle were the first purebred cattle to arrive on campus, just four years after the original Department of Animal Husbandry was officially organized in the School of Agriculture in 1907. In 1911, Pennsylvania State College joined the American Aberdeen Angus Breeders Association. The most famous sire produced at Penn State may be PS Power Play, the number one sire in number of registrations in 1984. He ranked in the top five sires from 1981 to 1986. PS Power Play was the number one sire of Pathfinder daughters in 1988, 1989, and 1990. Penn State bulls have stood stud in four leading AI firms including Select Sires Inc. and 21st Century Genetics. Penn State has consigned bulls to the PA Bull Test and breeding cattle to regional sales. Angus cattle from this herd have been sold throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Australia, and Tasmania. Semen on some of the bulls has reached a much broader international market and income generated from the sale of livestock is used for program support. The Department of Dairy and Animal Science works closely with Cooperative Extension, offering field days, conferences and judging contests. Students are involved in all aspects of the program, gaining valuable real-world experience as part of their education. The success of the cattle program over the last century was due to out-

standing leadership of many individuals: in the early years F.L. Mently, P.C. McKenzie and Alex Buchan managed the herd and mentored students. In the 1950s Herman Purdy, Gail Long, Dick Sour, Bill Gray and Les Haller led the program, including successfully showing and selling cattle throughout the United States and in Canada. When Purdy retired in 1972, Erskine Cash joined the beef team and with assistance by Donnie Nichols and Eric Lorenz, launched several exciting decades for the Angus program. In the late 1990s Dr. John Comerford added his expertise to the breeding program. Today, the program is led by department head Dr. Etherton; Landis, Beef and Sheep Complex Manager; Randy Swope, coordinator of Support Units; and Pete LeVan, Haller Farm Manager.

Eminent domain constitutional TRADE SHOW OPPORTUNITIES amendment ‘in sight’ • KEYSTONE FARM SHOW • CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — A Virginia constitutional amendment to protect private property rights has progressed further than ever before in the legislative approval process. HJ3 and SJ3, the state House of Delegates and Senate versions of the bill, tighten the definition of public use and require just compensation for owners of property taken for eminent domain. The bills passed in last year’s General Assembly. “We have never gotten past that first step, but last year we did,” said Del. Robert Bell, R-Charlottesville, the chief patron of HJ3. “This year we are finally in sight of our goal.” For a constitutional amendment to be enacted, it must pass in the General Assembly two years in a row with the exact same wording. If it passes in 2012, as it did in 2011, it will be placed on the ballot this November and would have to be approved by a majority of Virginia voters. The constitutional amendment has three key parts: Public entities can take private property for public use only; the entities cannot take more land than is necessary for that public use; and landowners must receive just compensation. “Farmers have a particular interest, because they own a lot of land and they are especially vulnerable,” Bell said. “Farmers in my area have been very supportive of the constitutional amendment.” Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, the state’s largest farm organization, has been calling for a constitutional amendment for the past several years. Farm Bureau members believe that land ownership is a fundamental right deserving of constitutional protection. Virginia’s constitution recognizes that some ‘takings’ are necessary for public use; however, public use should be narrowly defined, and just compensation should be provided to an individual whose property is taken, said Trey Davis, VFBF

assistant director of governmental relations. “Because farmers’ assets are mostly landbased, they feel constantly under threat from eminent domain,” Davis said. “The only way to truly protect them is to have a constitutional amendment that ensures farmland cannot be taken and given to another private owner.” In July, Farm Bureau launched a postcard campaign urging state legislators to back the constitutional amendment. The organization will deliver more than 13,000 postcards signed by its members during this year’s General Assembly. Last winter, Del. Johnny Joannou, DPortsmouth, introduced the bill that would amend the state constitution to mirror 2007 statutory changes to the state’s eminent domain law that strictly define public use. Those changes were made as a result of the 2005 Kelo et al v. City of New London, CT, et al decision, in which the

U.S. Supreme Court ruled that private land can be justifiably transferred to another private party for economic development purposes. “That was never the intent of eminent domain,” Bell said. Senator Mark Obenshain, R-Harrisonburg, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli also have championed efforts to change state law to restrict when private land can be taken for public use. “Farmers and homeowners deserve to know that their properties cannot be taken at the behest of a private developer, and that any legitimate takings receive just compensation,” Obenshain said. “As any farmer knows, when you cut across a field or bisect a farming operation, the losses exceed the value of the land that was taken — and the compensation given should reflect that. Farmers face enough challenges; they shouldn’t have to battle a government that has other ideas for the land.”

by Kim Kaplan WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Jan. 25, the USDA released the new version of its Plant Hardiness Zone Map (PHZM), updating a useful tool for gardeners

and researchers for the first time since 1990 with greater accuracy and detail. The new map — jointly developed by USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Oregon

State University’s (OSU) PRISM Climate Group — is available online at www.planthardiness.ars. usda.gov. ARS is the chief intramural scientific research agency of USDA.

The new USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is more sophisticated and accurate than any other previously developed. For the first time, the new map offers a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based interactive format and is specifically designed to be Internetfriendly. The map website also incorporates a “find your zone by ZIP code” function. Static images of national, regional and state maps also have been included to ensure the map is readily accessible to those who lack broadband Internet access. “This is the most sophisticated Plant Hardiness Zone Map yet for the United States,” said Catherine Woteki, USDA Under Secretary for Research, Education and Economics. “The increases in accuracy and detail that this map

represents will be extremely useful for gardeners and researchers.” Plant hardiness zone designations represent the average annual extreme minimum temperatures at a given location during a particular time period. They do not reflect the coldest it has ever been or ever will be at a specific location, but simply the average lowest winter temperature for the location over a specified time. Low temperature during the winter is a crucial factor in the survival of plants at specific locations. The new version of the map includes 13 zones, with the addition for the first time of zones 12 (5060 degrees Fahrenheit) and 13 (60-70 degrees Fahrenheit). Each zone is a 10-degree Fahrenheit band, further divided into 5-degree Fahrenheit zones “A” and “B.” To help develop the new map, USDA and OSU requested that horticultural and climatic experts review the zones in their geographic area, and trial versions of the new map were revised based on their expert input. Compared to the 1990 version, zone boundaries in this edition of the map have shifted in many areas. The new map is generally one 5-degree Fahrenheit half-zone warmer than the previous map throughout much of the United States. This is mostly a result of using temperature data from a longer and more recent time period; the new map uses data measured at weather stations during the 30-year period 19762005. In contrast, the 1990 map was based on

temperature data from only a 13-year period of 1974-1986. However, some of the changes in the zones are a result of new, more sophisticated methods for mapping zones between weather stations. These include algorithms that considered for the first time such factors as changes in elevation, nearness to large bodies of water, and position on the terrain, such as valley bottoms and ridge tops. Also, the new map used temperature data from many more stations than did the 1990 map. These advances greatly improved the accuracy and detail of the map, especially in mountainous regions of the western United States. In some cases, they resulted in changes to cooler, rather than warmer, zones. While about 80 million American gardeners, as well as those who grow and breed plants, are the largest users of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, many others need this hardiness zone information. For example, the USDA Risk Management Agency uses the USDA plant hardiness zone designations to set some crop insurance standards. Scientists use the plant hardiness zones as a data layer in many research models such as modeling the spread of exotic weeds and insects. Although a poster-sized version of this map will not be available for purchase from the government as in the past, anyone may download the map free of charge from the Internet onto their personal computer and print copies of the map as needed.

the related markets for futures contracts, puts, and calls, and what seems to be CME’s relatively stand-offish approach to oversight of those instruments perhaps should be given another long look by the Government Accountability Office.” The Cold Storage data at the end of December “supports the belief that current cheese prices are not too high,” MPC said. In other news, USDA reports that Class I demand has leveled off nationwide. Milk production is steady to increasing in most regions with the Pacific Northwest, Utah and Idaho near their seasonal low points. A winter storm in the Northwest slowed milk handling, but many areas welcomed the moisture. Florida’s drought conditions are continuing, causing deterioration of pastures and winter forages. Cream supplies are moderate to heavy throughout the nation. Sellers in the East and West are finding it challenging to move cream. Cream demand has improved for sour cream, dips and cream cheese, but supplies quickly exceed demand resulting in heavy volumes going to butter churns. Milk production contin-

ues to trend lower in both New Zealand and Australia but New Zealand handlers project a 3-4 percent annual increase over last season and their Australian counterparts project a 2-3 percent seasonal increase. Speaking of the international market; the Cooperatives Working Together program accepted 18 export assistance bids to sell just over 4 million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and Central America for delivery through June. 2012 cheese exports now total 10.4 million pounds. Meanwhile; the January 25 CME Daily Dairy Report said China imported 85,400 tons of whole milk powder (WMP), skim milk powder (SMP), and whey in December, up 20.6 percent from the prior year, according to Global Trade Atlas. WMP purchases were down 42 percent from December 2010, but SMP and whey imports were each up nearly 80 percent. China imported 805,700 tons of milk powder and whey in 2011, up 16.9 percent from 2010. Record purchases of SMP and whey offset a slight decline in WMP, according to the DDR. Almost half of Chi-

na’s imports came from New Zealand and about 22 percent came from the U.S. South Korean imports of milk powder, cheese, butterfat and whey reached 152,140 tons in 2011, up 35 percent from the year before. The U.S. was the leading supplier, shipping almost one-third of that total, according to the DDR. Most Americans are collecting information to fill out federal and state tax forms and they’ll be comparing their 2011 income to the year before. Dairy Profit Weekly’s Dave Natzke discussed how much income the nation’s 9 million dairy cows made last year in Friday’s DairyLine and said “Every year about this time I calculate what the average dairy cow earned the year before, based on the simple average annual milk price and milk production per cow. Based on gross income, at least, our dairy cows had more earning power in 2011.” According to preliminary estimates from USDA, annual gross income per cow improved for a second straight year, according to Natzke. Milk production per cow was up about 186 pounds from the year before, to about 21,335 pounds. More im-

portantly, the 2011 U.S. milk price was up about $3.88 per hundred pounds from the year before, averaging $20.14 per hundredweight. Multiplying the increased milk production and price, each cow brought home nearly $4,300 in milk sales in 2011, up $859 per cow from the year before. Even more startling, gross income per cow was up more than $1,650 from 2009, the year of devastatingly low milk prices, Natzke said. “The 2011 estimate gross income per cow is the highest on record, and when you add the increase for all 9 million cows, U.S. dairy farmers saw their gross income increase by about $7.7 billion from 2010,” Natzke reported. “Of course, that’s gross income, and the nation’s dairy cows will be declaring a few deductions,” Natzke cautioned. USDA updates its cost estimates to produce milk next week, but through November, feed and operating costs were running about $1.75 per hundredweight more than 2010, and even with the previous highcost year of 2008. Adding in those higher costs will reduce the earning power of each

Mielke from 21 cow by about 43 percent, he concluded. “The bottom line, our cows made more, but they cost more, too.” The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) praised USDA’s updated school meal standards that it says “continue to stress the nutritional benefits of low-fat and fat-free milk and dairy products.” A final version

of those standards was released January 25 following more than a year of public comment and review. The International Dairy Foods Association also praised the action but expressed concern that restrictions on flavored milk could reduce overall milk consumption in schools in favor of less healthy alternatives.

Get hands-on insight and ideas at Core Dairy Track One-day program part of 2012 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit HARRISBURG, PA — New this year, a one-day “Core Dairy Track” will be included as part of the two-day Pennsylvania Dairy Summit. Designed to meet the needs of those dairy producers who can’t get away from the farm for a two-day event, the Core Dairy Track will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8, during the first day of the two-day Dairy Summit program being held at the Lancaster Host Resort in Lancaster, PA. The summit is hosted annually by the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania and the Center for Dairy Excellence, with support from the Penn State Extension Dairy Team and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. The Dairy Summit is now in its seventh year, with participation and support for the annual event continuing to grow. “We recognize that getting away from the farm can be a challenge, so we’ve taken the elements of the summit that have made it so appealing to participants and built them into a one-day program,” said Dave Hunsberger, chair of this year’s summit.

“Producers can come to hear a dairy farm showcase, participate in producer panel discussions, and learn more about the global dairy markets and what it will take to succeed in dairy in the next five to 10 years.” Dr. Nigel Cook from the University of Wisconsin Madison will discuss the “Dairyland Initiative: A Welfare Friendly Guide to Dairy Housing,” while Dr. William Weiss from the Ohio State University will provide a look at alternative feeds and their effectiveness from both a ration and cost perspective. Four producer panel discussions will be held as part of the breakout sessions, focusing on genomics, reproductive strategies, robotic milking solutions and succession planning. Dr. Bruce Jones from the University of Wisconsin will share the “Critical Factors for Success in Dairy Now and in the Next 10 Years,” while Mark Piper from Fonterra, the world’s largest exporter of dairy, will offer his perspective on global markets, dairy policy and the mailbox price. Dr. John Niezen, dairy manager of Greenstone Grazing in Georgia, will provide a showcase of the intensively grazed operation. Also included in the event is an opportuni-

ty to visit with vendors at the Dairy Trade Show and learn more about the latest technologies and services for your dairy. For those participants who can get away for the two-day event, Thursday’s Summit program on Feb. 9 will include another dairy farm showcase, a panel discussion on renewable energy, and a look at Cargill Meats Solutions, its commitment to quality and the dairy farm’s role in that. A closing luncheon on Thursday will showcase this year’s award winners and include a motivational address from Dick Beardsley, author of the best-selling book, “Staying the Course.” Registration information and a program brochure are available online at www.padairysummit.org. To request a copy of the brochure, email info@padairysummit.org or call 814-355-2467 with your contact information. The cost to register for the full summit is $200 per person, with a $100 discount for dairy producers available through the Lancaster Workforce Investment Board (WIB). The cost to register for the one-day “Core Dairy Track” is $125 for non-producers and

$68 for producers and students. Additional scholarship opportunities and discounts for multiple participants from the same farm are also available. For more information about the summit, contact Caroline Novak from PDMP at 717-889-1065 or caroline@pdmp.org or Jayne Sebright from the Center for Dairy Excellence at 717-259-6496 or jsebright@centerfordairyexcellence.org.
