Triple Creek Ranch hosts summer forage tour by Karl H. Kazaks VIRGILINA, VA — In late August, the Virginia Forage and Grassland Council held a summer forage tour at Triple Creek Ranch for graziers and forage producers from Virginia and North Carolina. The event, which was organized with help from both Virginia and North Carolina Cooperative Extension — and the extended family of Dr. and Mrs. Henry Poore, owners of Triple Creek Ranch — attracted well over 100 attendees from across southside Virginia and northern North Carolina. The event was not only a good opportunity to learn about summertime forage management but also to connect with fellow farmers and members of the regional agriculture community. The centerpiece of the field day was a tour of the farm and some of the projects currently underway at Triple Creek to improve its forage system. For example, the farm is in the process of converting its fescue stands. It is well-known that conventional Kentucky 31 tall fescue is infected with an endophyte — a fungus that lives within the grass — that can cause a number of detrimental effects to grazing animals, particularly in the summer. These cumulative impact of these effects are described by a number of related phrases, including summer slump and fescue toxicity. Animals that graze Kentucky 31 have been seen to have lower feed intake, lower weight gains, and lower milk production (hence the term summer slump). They also have higher respiration rates, higher body temperatures, rougher hair coats, and reduced fertility (in some cases, particularly in horses, abortions can occur because of eating toxic-endophyte-infected fescue). Similar results occur when animals consume hay made from endophyte-infected Kentucky 31. There are now fescue strains which have friendly, nontoxic endophytes, which don’t cause a summer slump or toxicity. MaxQ® is probably the most well-known strain of endophyte-friendly fescue. (Endophyte-free fescues, though they exist, are not necessarily are good substitute for Kentucky 31 because they don’t have good summer persistence.) Triple Creek Ranch is in the middle of converting away from toxic-endophyte fescue. Because fescue spreads by seed, it is critically important not to allow seed production in the year when the pasture is being converted. To prevent that, the field must, in the summer, be smothered with a variety of other plants and grasses. The conversion program at Triple Creek Ranch, as Virginia Tech’s Dr. Brian Campbell described, includes a smother crop mix of turnips, radishes, cowpeas, millet, sunflower, and sorghum sudangrass. These smother crops were planted in the late spring. They will be grazed in the late summer and then the field replanted with a nontoxic tall fescue in the autumn. The cost of the seed for the smother crop used at Triple Creek

is $48/acre — “definitely not cheap,” Dr. Campbell said. That also doesn’t include the cost of the new nontoxic tall fescue seed. The question he most often gets, Dr. Campbell said, is “When should I renovate?” His answer, “That depends.” For example, if you’re happy with production, you don’t have to renovate at all. If you do renovate to a nontoxic tall fescue, it’s important to note that cattle will eat 25 percent more dry matter than they would on Kentukcy 31, which means you must reduce your stocking rate. In another segment of the farm tour, Virginia Tech’s Dr. Chris Teutsch talked about making the most of what you currently have in your pastures. “If you have something that’s working for you,” he said, “maybe it’s most effective to manage for it rather than spend money on converting your pastures.” Say you have crabgrass growing in the summer. Crabgrass is actually very digestible, allowing for good performance. You may choose to keep the crabgrass rather than convert. “Depending on how we manage we can shift the botanical composition of our pastures,” Dr. Teutsch said. For example, controlling grazing height can select for lower or higher growing grasses or legumes. If you want to favor bermudagrass — which grows close to the earth — use close and frequent grazing. You can also time your fertilizer application to favor bermudagrass, applying the nutrients in the early summer as bermudagrass is about to enter its prime growing season. Dr. Mark Alley, North Carolina State veterinarian, gave a demonstration about how to use a Bud box, a cattle

handling system developed by Bud Williams. A Bud box system uses a rectangular box (a Bud box) set perpendicular to the race leading to the chute. Cattle are driven past the opening of the alley and the gate is shut behind them. When they reach the end of the Bud box, the handler waits a few moments, then applies pressure to send the cattle back the way they came. Because they cannot exit they way they came (because the gate is shut), they will seek another avenue of escape — the raceway to the handling facility. The key to using the Bud box, said

Dr. Chris Teutsch, Associate Professor of Forage and Livestock at Virginia Tech’s Southern Piedmont Agriculture Research and Extension Center, Left, discussed ways to use of preexisting species in your pastures to extend the grazing season.

Dr. Alley, is to know how to put pressure on cattle while in the loading facility with them. What’s more, you should move your cattle through such a facility more often than you need to handle them. By putting them through it for a few trials runs, it will make them easier to handle when you need to work them. Representatives of NRCS and Virginia’s Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) spoke about using riparian and marginal areas for wildlife. Maintaining sanctuaries for wildlife along waterways can improve water quality, as shade along riparian areas will help keep water temperatures low. The wild cover could also be an alternative feed for deer, keeping them out of your crops and forages. “Some people call it riparian bugger,” said DGIF’s Marc Puckett. “I call it riparian buffet,” because it offers so much for wildlife. “From a wildlife standpoint, if I could ask landowners just one thing,” Puckett said, “it would be to change the way you mow.” To keep trees and perennials at bay, you don’t have to mow every year. Every second or third year will do. What’s more, mowing in the spring is better for wildlife than mowing in the fall. If you mow in the fall, cover for wildlife will not regenerated until after the winter. If you mow in the spring, the cover will regrow much more quickly. What’s more, managing for wildlife can help you develop a non-agricultural income source: selling hunting rights. For more information about the topics covered at this field day, including possibilities of cost-share for managing to promote quail habitat, check with your local extension agent or NRCS or FSA representative.

September 11, 2012 Dairy Farmers! This Might Be Your Last Chance! The petition drive that is calling for a national milk hearing to establish fair raw milk prices for all dairy farmers is growing by leaps and bounds. The original petition drive originated with Peter Hardin, the editor of the nationally published farm paper, the MILK WEED. We certainly encourage all dairy farmers to sign a petition and send the petition to Dana Coale, Deputy Administrator — AMS Dairy Programs in Washington D.C. There is no reason why the USDA should not hold the hearing. Prices paid to dairy farmers have been running at least $6- $8 per cwt. (hundred weight) below the national average cost of production. There are many costs that are escalating to all dairy farmers, but the accelerated cost of grain, hay and feed costs are leading the way. We have been clamoring for years that the dairy farmers’ costs of production must be brought into a pricing formula for all dairy farmers. Certainly the time is ripe for this milk hearing to be held. Anything less than a hearing that will allow the John Doe dairy farmers a chance to testify is totally unacceptable. According to the petition the Secretary of Agriculture has the authority under section 608 C 18 of the enabling language for Federal Milk orders to act upon evidence presented at a hearing to adjust regional farm milk prices when according to law, the parity prices for such commodities are not reasonable! Without any reservation, prices paid to dairy farmers are certainly not rea-

sonable! Some people are trying to confuse dairy farmers by stating that if 608 C 18 was appropriate, then the law would have been implemented a long time ago. Hogwash! I have no knowledge that anyone has really called for a hearing to have dairy farmers’ costs brought into a milk pricing formula. I’m fully aware of the lawsuit that St. Alban’s Co-op in Vermont started several years ago, when Judge Session ruled that it was obvious 608 C 18 had not been implemented in the dairy farmers’ prices. Further action taken by the U.S. Congress played a part in the co-op dropping their lawsuit. So one more time Mr. and Mrs. Dairy Farmer: Are you now ready to help develop your own destiny by petitioning for this very important hearing? Please don’t listen to the people who try to tell you it can’t be done. If you don’t have access to a petition, then simply send a letter to the USDA stating your support of a national milk hearing under 608 C 18 of the Agriculture Act. E-mail, Fax, or mail your letter or petition to: By E-mail: dana.coale@ams.usda.gov (Administrator — USDA) By FAX: 202-690-3410 By regular Mail: Thomas Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture c/o Dana H.

Lazy Acres Angus hosts 2012 Virginia Beef Cattlemen’s Field Day by Karl H. Kazaks ROCKY MOUNT, VA — On Saturday, Aug. 18, the Virginia Angus Association and Virginia Cattleman’s Association held the 2012 Virginia Beef Cattlemen’s Field Day at Lazy Acre Angus. Some 210 attendees — from Virginia, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina — enjoyed a variety of presentations, interactions with vendors, a

delicious BBQ beef lunch, and a panel discussion on fertility. Many also participated in a cattle judging competition (there were three classes — cows, yearling heifers, and yearling bulls), and children also were able to play in bounce houses. Special note has to be made of the effort that the Thurman and Furrow families (of Lazy Acres) put into the event to make it all happen.

The afternoon program at the field day included a panel discussion on fertility, including (from left to right) Dr. Bill Beal, Virginia Tech Professor Emeritus (specialty: beef cattle reproductive physiology), Bill Tucker, 7th generation farmer from Amherst County, and Clif Marshall, Select Sires Vice President (specialty: semen processing, evaluation, and distribution).

The event, which was the fourth time the Virginia Angus Association has partnered with the Virginia Cattlemen’s Association for a social and educational event of this kind, began with a discussion of breeding soundness exams by Dr. Chris Sumner, veterinarian and co-owner of Rock Mount’s Farm Vet Services. Following that, Anne Jones, Director of Beef Promotion for the Virginia Beef Industry Council (VBIC), spoke about how the VBIC promotes the beef industry to consumers in the commonwealth, and also gave some tips for grilling. One interesting point she highlighted was the recent discovery of a fifth taste for humans (after sweet, salty, bitter, and sour) — a taste known as umami. Umami is a sensation of richness and fullness which is something humans get when they eat beef (among other things). There is even a new chain of restaurants called Umami Burger. Presumably as consumers gain an increased awareness of and appreciation for umami, it will help the

beef industry. While Anne was speaking, the new Executive Secretary of the Virginia Cattlemen’s Association, Jason Carter, successor to Bill McKinnon, grilled marinated flank stank for attendees to sample. That was a prelude to the tasty BBQ beef lunch. After lunch, Carter moderated a panel discussion on fertility covering five topics: bulls, females, AI, estrus and synchronization, and trends in the industry. Panelists for the event were Bill Tucker of Amherst’s Tucker Family Farms, Virginia Tech Professor Emeritus Dr. Bill Beal, and Clif Marshall, Vice President of Select Sires. The day concluded with the distribution of a number of nice door prizes. All told, the event was a great success — and a good precursor to a busy fall sale season just ahead of us.

conditions, especially when hearing about the devastating drought affecting other parts of the U.S. this summer.

Even pasture seems to have made it through August in good shape. I know I spend a lot of time talking about pasture —

that’s because pasture is so fundamentally important for cow health. There’s never any good reason to be against pasture for ruminants and horses — especially since that’s what God created ruminants and other herbivores to eat primarily. The term herbivore is simply the scientific way of saying that an animal is biologically programmed to eat plants. Plants have been used for food forever by animals and people. Plants and herbs are spoken about in the Old and New Testament — to eat, to use for health, and as symbols within parables/stories. However in the Old Testament, all illness and healing was thought to be provided by God, so plants specifically for healing were not discussed much. There are about 125 references to plants and plant terms mentioned in the Bible (specific plants or words like vine, flowers, thorns, etc.). Some people plant Biblical herb gardens with plants mentioned in the

Bible. These kinds of gardens likely started in monasteries, when monks or nuns were the local providers of medical care to both nobility and peasants. In Italy, the Medici family was famous for their additions of plants and their derivatives to the world of medicines. It only makes sense that herbivores will respond favorably to plants administered as medicines since their digestive system has all the enzymes to digest & absorb plant compounds easily. Even if giving herbal medicine not by mouth, the entire herbivore system of the cow, sheep, goat or horse should respond well. When I read in the late 1990’s that the Chinese give herbal teas to humans intravenously (IV) in hospitals, I knew I had to try it in my bovine patients. I’ve given tinctures IV since then (in dextrose) and am generally pleased with the results. However, you must make sure that the tinc-

Moo from A5 ture is extremely well made if giving directly into the blood stream. The most common route of administration is through the mouth — as it should be. There are two good reasons for this. First, it is the normal way that animals take in plants into their system. Thus their digestive tract is alerted and can respond since it’s biologically geared to take in plants anyway. Folks that watch animals on pasture know animals like to eat a variety of plant species — certainly not only orchard grass, white clover, and perennial rye but lambs quarters, smooth pigweed, soft seed heads of spiny red root, poison ivy, multiflora rose, quack grass, etc. The second important reason to give herbal medicines in the mouth is that the sense organs are very concentrated in the head area. The sense of taste of the tongue is directly related to the sense of smell in the nose while our vision and hearing help orient us in space and time. These four senses are the main ones our herbivorous animal friends have, as they don’t have sensitive finger tips for touch like we do. The four main sense organs are only a very short distance away from the

brain, which processes incoming information with amazing speed. Additionally, there are lymph nodes near the base of the tongue, behind the jaw and along the throat that help process incoming information towards the immune system. Between the brain’s immediate response to the herb via the facial senses and the digestive tract’s ability to sift, sort and absorb plant material, it can easily be seen that oral administration is the best method of giving herbal medicines — whether they be tinctures, essential oils, dried herbs, teas or glycerites (glycerin as the carrier, which animals like much better than the alcohol of tinctures, which may give a burning sensation).

The list of dosages shown below is from a book I stumbled upon many years ago — it’s a gold mine of real information of plants used by veterinarians for animals “back in the day” — when botanical medicine was commonly used by veterinarians. It’s called The Book of Veterinary Doses by Dr. Pierre Fish

(Slingerland -Comstock, Ithaca, 1930). Dr. Fish was Dean of the Cornell Veterinary School. All doses shown are tinc-

tures for oral administration in ml/cc. In their widely acclaimed book, Veterinary Herbal Medicine (Mosby, 2007), Dr. Susan Wynn and Dr. Barbara Fougere also show dosages of herbs to give. The doses shown in the table are from modern day veterinary practitioners from all over the world that use herbs. What’s really nice is that these doses match up fairly well with the doses used in the 1930’s with dose for tinctures being between 1-3 Tbsp, which is approximately 15-45 cc (1Tbsp = 15cc & 1 tsp = 5cc) I am pleased to have

both Dr. Wynn and Dr. Fougere as friends and we’re among the original members of the Veterinary Botanical Medical Association, which was started in 2002. The Association is a world-wide group of veterinarians dedicated to using plant medicine with animals. My commitment to VBMA is long-term, and I’m actually its next president beginning this September for two years. The VBMA promotes the science, traditional use and energies of herbs.

Pennsylvania dairymen have a variety of cow comfort solutions and can see clearly what’s performing best by Holly Harper Equipment wears out and needs to be replaced at different rates, and there isn’t usually a good reason to toss something out if it still can be used. That’s how Clayholm Farms ended up with two different types of free stalls and three different types of bedding on their 800-cow registered-Holstein dairy in Worthington, PA. Having a variety of systems makes Leland and Roy Claypoole, real farmers farming in real-world conditions, able to truly compare different cow-

comfort solutions head-to-head. Free stall change When some of the Claypoole’s 480 free stalls needed replacing, they didn’t tear out all 480, they just replaced the 180 stalls that were in poor shape. And they didn’t replace them with traditional steel loops, either. The Claypoole family decided to install GREENFREESTALL®, a product introduced in the U.S. in 2009 that is a flexible, durable plastic tube structure that moves with the cow. “My dad saw them when he went to

Today, the mattresses are 10 years old. “The Pasture Mats, after about five years, they started packing and they now have holes that have sawdust in them and the back feet of the cows can get stuck,” said Claypoole. “The DCC Waterbeds can’t pack down on us.” Cost is also less for the waterbeds. “The mattresses use more sawdust,” said Claypoole. “On the waterbeds, we use just a little bit of lime on the dry cows and a little lime and sawdust on the milking groups.” One of the concerns with bedding systems is preventing hock issues. “When the cows lie down on the waterbed, they’re floating,” said Claypoole. “It’s less resistance on the hock than concrete or mattresses. We still get some swollen hocks on the old Pasture Mats, so then we stick those cows on the DCC Waterbeds to heal them up.” After 10 years, the Claypooles’ mattresses might be getting near the end of their life expectancy. “When I have to replace these mat-

Free-stalls from A7 tresses, I would put in more waterbeds,” he said. “The waterbeds are two years old and still look as good as they day we put them in.” What about sand? No one disputes that sand provides superior levels of cow comfort, but sand also takes a lot of work. “The sand is good for comfort in the heifer barn, but the waterbeds are right up there with it,” said Claypoole. “Neither the cows on the waterbeds nor the cows on the sand have swollen hocks.” So, if comfort is the same, which does Claypoole prefer?

“Now, once the sand leaves the stall, it becomes a curse,” he said. “In the summer, the heifers get flies on them and they want to dig holes down underneath where it’s cool. This makes us have to rake and level more. And, the sand is hard on the equipment as it gets into the manure spreaders.” If he had to choose between putting in a sand barn and a waterbed barn? “Probably the waterbeds. You put the waterbeds down, and other than buying and putting a little bit of lime on them, it’s pretty much maintenance free,” Claypoole said. “We don’t have swollen hocks on the waterbeds, and

the cows lie down right away. Comfort wise, compared to sand, waterbeds are pretty much even.” Clayholm Farms is making each of their technologies work for them, and pushing everything to last as long as possible, while still keeping a high level of cow comfort. But, it seems pretty clear which way these second generation farmers are going to go as time marches on.

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?

Brothers Jay and Karl Krueger

When I started talking about a new TMR mixer, "Dad was about to have a heart attack" thinking about the investment, stated Jay. I looked around at other vertical mixers, and NDE looked like the strongest, best built and easiest to maintain and do the job we needed. I had also gotten some good reports about Trissel Equipment from other owners. It was only a few days after we bought the NDE 1402 mixer, that we realized the purchase couldn't have been better. Our butterfat went from 3.7-3.8 to 4.2 almost immediately by feeding 10 pounds of hay per head, while milk rose several pounds on the same ration. We can now make the ration fit our homegrown hay we have available, even if it's less palatable. Sorting has been all but eliminated and our 90 cows now eat what is good for them and not just what they want. October will be a year, the whole family agrees the purchase was a wise investment!

The breeding and calving process may be challenging for some dairy calf and heifer farmers. Once breeding is successful, the bred female has to carry the unborn to term and calve with minimum stress to the cow and the calf. Although this seems like a straight-forward process, there are major risk factors for stillbirth and infectious disease. Problematic calvings may result in calves developing respiratory acidosis. Left uncorrected, it may lead to the development of metabolic acidosis. This causes the calf’s blood pH to rise, which may lower the calf’s capability to absorb antibodies from colostrum. The following steps may help your calf get passed a rough start, ensure survival and thrive. • Clear the airway — Remove mucous from around the mouth and nose, assisting the calf to breathe. Inserting a piece of straw into the nasal cavity or pouring some cold water on the calf’s head should initiate a gasping reflex to promote respiration. • Dry off the calf — Dry the calf with a clean, dry towel. This should be done if the dam is unable to dry her calf, or if the calf is removed immediately. Vigorous drying around the shoulders and neck encourages respiration and helps the calf to regulate its body temperature. As water evaporates, heat is

removed, which can leave the calf vulnerable to chilling. • Feed colostrum - once the calf is breathing well, colostrum should be administered. According to DCHA Gold Standards, colostrum equaling 10 percent of body weight should be fed in the first four hours of life. • Colostrum has several positive effects on a calf. Not only does it provide the calf with disease-fighting antibodies, but it also increases the calf’s blood volume and improves blood circulation. • Calves from a difficult calving may need to be moved and handled with extra care.

by Jennifer Showalter LEXINGTON, VA — Being only the second dairy in the state of Virginia to have installed a robotic milking system and the first to install a Lely robotic system, Ingleside Dairy recently opened its barn doors for neighbors, other fellow dairymen, and industry officials to come out and take a look at the new facilities and equipment. The enormous interest in this project drew some 425 visitors from across Virginia and West Virginia. “This was

the first time that most of the attendees had actually seen robots work. “Seeing is believing; it’s one thing to hear about it, but it’s amazing to actually see a cow milk herself, with no human help,” said Jennifer Leech with Ingleside Dairy. Mike Cline with C & C Farm Supply in Harrisonburg, VA agreed, “We were very pleased and humbled with the attendance and the interest of those who came.”

Among numerous conversations, two go a long way toward summing up the current market situation, Dryer wrote; “Domestically, a veteran marCalifornia Dairy Producers Say They’re Being Milked! Issued Sept. 7, 2012 Cheese prices were mixed in the Labor Day holiday-shortened week. The blocks closed the first Friday of September at $1.83 per pound, down a penny on the day, up a penny on the week and 4 1/2-cents above a year ago. Barrels closed at $1.7750, down a quarter-cent on the week and 5 1/2-cents above a year ago. Eleven cars of block traded hands on the week and four of barrel. The AMSsurveyed U.S. average block price hit $1.8469, up 3 1/2-cents, while the barrels averaged $1.8313, down 0.1 cent. USDA’s Dairy Market News (DMN) says cheese manufacturers in all regions of the country would increase production if more milk was available. Recent heavy CME sales were attrib-

uted to “buyer demand which found less cheese available from manufacturers than desired, taking some buyers to the CME as a result.” Some demand is from buyers who seek cheese in addition to already contracted levels, DMN said. Buyers are alert for available cheese but also being cautious about locking in a price. Many manufacturers anticipate some milk tightness relative to demand in the near future, as milk production continues to reflect the impact of summer weather and resulting feed prices. Market analyst Jerry Dryer wrote in his August 31 Dairy and Food Market Analyst newsletter that he believes cheese prices will continue to move in a fairly narrow range; possibly for the entire month of September but he warned that “We could see some downward

lower Friday, to $1.8650, up 2 1/2-cents on the week, the 11th week of gain, but 4 3/4-cents below a year ago. Eleven cars sold on the week. The AMS average hit $1.7686, up 1.1 cent. Churning across the country is mixed and continues to depend on cream availability and price, says USDA. Some butter producers indicate that standardized cream volumes are increasing as school bottling programs gear up.

In recent weeks, churning schedules were often not keeping pace with demand and inventoried stocks were being used. The Cold Storage report indicated the July drawdown was heavier and earlier than normal. Overall butter demand is steady at good levels. Retail orders are the strongest with food service easing. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk held all week at $1.70 while Extra Grade inched a penny higher to

$1.6350. AMS powder averaged $1.3263, up 3 cents, and dry whey averaged 55.97 cents, up 1.2 cents on the week. Milk supplies vary by region, according to USDA. Milk supply and demand are reportedly in balance in the Central region where refilling the school pipeline occurred easily this year. Shipments into the Southeast were phasing in gradually. Requests for fluid milk from the Southwest appeared the last week of August which, according to some milk handlers, was an unusual pattern. California milk output was leveling off after sev-

eral weeks of very hot weather. Processing plants were running at reduced levels with some reporting milk levels 3-5 percent or more below a year ago. Manufacturing milk supplies in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have declined with the increase in Class I demand from schools are back in session. Tropical storm Isaac was not the event forecast for Florida and many schools that were scheduled to close did not, resulting in strong Class I demand. Milk production in the Oceania region is trending higher and moving off the low point of the production year. Situations are generally quite favorable from both weather and water standpoints, according to USDA, but weather forecasters are predicting effects of an El Nino

cycle that could include dryer summer conditions. This could affect crop and pasture growth more in dry land production areas. Australian output in June was reported to be 4.3 percent higher than June 2011 and up 4.2 percent year to date. FC Stone dairy broker Dave Kurzawski said this week’s Global Dairy Trade auction priced index leapt 6 percent over the previous report, as global demand for dairy products remains robust. The gap between U.S. and Oceania prices narrowed but U.S. prices are still above Oceania’s. Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted seven requests for export assistance this week to sell 734,139 pounds of cheese; 352,740 pounds of butter; and 44,082 pounds of anhydrous milk fat (AMF) to customers in Asia, Central America and the Middle East. The product will be delivered December 2012 and raises CWT’s 2012 cheese exports to

79.1 million pounds plus 56.7 million of butter, and 123,459 pounds of AMF to 34 countries on four continents. CWT Chief Operating Officer Jim Tillison said in Thursday’s DairyLine that CWT’s export assistance program is as, if not more effective than herd retirements and “better than taking dairy cows and dairy farmers out of business.” In other dairy news, July butter production totaled 133 million pounds, down 3.4 percent from June and 2 percent below July 2011, according to the latest Dairy Products report. Production of nonfat dry milk totaled 149 million pounds, down 11.6 percent from June but 12.1 percent above a year ago. American type cheese, at 356 million pounds, was down 1.1 percent from June but 1.8 percent above a year ago. Italian type cheese output totaled 368 million, down 2.7 percent from June

2.2 percent. USDA’s latest Agricultural Prices report shows the preliminary national average price paid to farmers for corn in August was $7.54 per bushel, up from $7.14 last month and compares to $6.88 a year

The Milk Producers Council (MPC) announced that legal action was filed in Superior Court of California, stating that the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) failed to follow the law in refusing to bring California’s Class 4b price into better alignment with prices paid by cheese manufacturers around the country. The “Writ of Mandamus” was filed on behalf of MPC, Dairy Farmers of America, Security Milk Producers Association and California Dairy Campaign. MPC reported that the action stems from a CDFA administrative hearing on May 31-June 1, 2012. That hearing

was held to consider changes to the formula used by CDFA to calculate California’s “Class 4b” monthly minimum price, the price paid for milk being sold to cheese manufacturers. California law requires CDFA to calculate prices that are in a “reasonable and sound economic relationship” with what comparable milk is sold for around the country, MPC said. “The law is very clear that the prices announced by CDFA must be in reasonable alignment with prices paid for comparable milk produced and sold around the country,” said Rob Vandenheuvel, MPC General Manager. “CDFA is violating that law and rewarding cheese manufacturers, including several huge national and international corporations, with a state-sponsored discount on the milk they buy, all at the expense of roughly 1,600 California dairy families that deserve a fair price for their milk.” I have regularly pointed out the differences between California’s 4b price and how it trails the Federal order Class III price by very wide margins. Vandenheuvel cites what that has cost California producers in his August 31 newsletter available at www.milkproducerscouncil.org. California Ag Secretary Karen Ross says she’s committed to working with the state’s dairy industry to find longterm solutions and has invited 32 dairy farmers, cooperative leaders and processors to form the California Dairy Future Task Force, according to Dairy Profit Weekly (DPW).

Ross said “It is imperative that task force members begin work as soon as possible and strive to develop recommendations by the end of the year.” “As CDFA tries to balance the interests of farmers with other dairy stakeholders, cooperatives, processors and consumers, it is clear to us that the pathway to future stability can be reached by tackling those reforms head-on.” Meanwhile; more than 50 California Dairy Campaign (CDC) members have called on Congress to pass legislation enabling California to join the Federal milk marketing order (FMMO) system. CDC executive director Lynne McBride charged that “Prices paid to dairy producers in California are the lowest of any regulated state in the nation and joining the FMMO would increase producer prices significantly.” With dairy producer discontent growing, Western United Dairymen is hosting a program to educate producers about the Federal market order system, September 20, at the Tulare Ag Center, Tulare, Calif. Some dairy producers are organizing a September 13 protest at the State Capitol in Sacramento. On a “happier note,” a California judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) seeking to stop California dairy farmers from airing TV commercials portraying how happy, healthy and well-cared for the state’s dairy herds are. Some might ask; why aren’t the dairy farmers themselves treated that way?

Ingleside from A13 The project, along with the open barn, was a result of a team effort between Charlie Leech IV ; his wife, Linda; and their children, Charles “Beau” Leech V and Jennifer Leech; C & C Farm Supply; County Line Construction; Maryland-Virginia Milk Producers; and Farm Credit of the Virginias. On top of this being an educational outing for visitors, those involved with the project wanted to highlight the Leech family for all their involvement and contributions to the dairy industry. “We wanted to congratulate the Leech family on their commitment to and success in the dairy industry over many generations. We also hope that we demonstrated the fact that local construction and dairy equipment companies can design, build, and support equipment and facilities that many just read about or see in magazines,” said Cline. He added, “I think most people clarified in their mind how robotic machines actually work as opposed to what they may have heard from others, and that normal people like themselves can retrofit facilities to utilize robotic machines. Many of the mysteries concerning design, layout, complexity or simplicity, management benefits, and requirements were resolved.” How robots found a home at

Ingleside Dairy A few years back the Leeches decided they wanted to upgrade their parlor. They bought some used sort gates and computer feeders, but also needed to set their barn up for parlor ID and activity. After shopping around and getting several bids in, the Leeches decided to look at other options. They hated to put so much money into a barn that was originally built in the 60s. A salesman joked with them about looking into robotic milkers. The Leeches did just that and visited a few robotic farms. They were impressed with the robotic systems and were willing to incorporate them into their operation. They sold their used sort gates and computer feeders and signed contracts with Lely, C & C Farm Supply, and County Line Construction. The Leeches worked closely with C & C Farm Supply and decided on four Lely Astronaut model A4 milking robots, a Glacier 6000 gallon bulk tank, two Grazeway three way sort gates, and a Juno feed pusher. Their existing free stall housing barn with 270 stalls had to be retrofitted for the four robotic machines. This involved removing 30 free stalls to make room for the robots, a special needs area, and footbaths. They also had to add a new building to the side of the free stall

barn to house the new milk room, office, kitchen/meeting room, and utility and storage area. The Leeches incorporated the addition of two Luna brushes near the robots to allow the cows to groom themselves and an automatic alley scraper in their plans. “We (C & C Farm Supply) provided design and support services, along with County Line Construction, and helped guide the family through the maze of what they could and should pursue and purchase and why. We spent much time on how to utilize the existing facilities in a retrofit scenario whereby they could achieve the same efficiencies as if they built new facilities,” said Cline. County Line Construction in Harrisonburg, VA handled all of the construction involved with the main barn and was asked to build a dry cow bedded pack barn near the robot barn. One section of the barn allows the cows access to pasture. When the cows freshen they can easily be moved into the robot barn by simply opening a few gates. An enormous amount of team work was required to get this project underway. “This facility was the first Lely robot setup for both C & C Farm Supply and County Line Construction. These two businesses worked well with each

other and both are particular about their work. Both businesses worked very hard to make this robot facility one that they would be glad to show to future customers,” said Charlie. Farm Credit of the Virginias was also important part of the project. “We have dealt with Farm Credit of the Virginias for many years. They were very understanding throughout the lending and building process,” added Linda. Paperwork becomes reality Construction of the new facilities started in the summer of 2011. The freestall barn was retro-fitted with a robot room, tank room, and office. Stalls on the back-middle wall of the freestall barn were taken out and the cows were shifted around to make room for the building project. By the end of January 2012, the finishing touches were put on the building and the robots and new gating system were installed. On Feb. 16 the Leeches started pretraining their cows by pushing them through the robots once a day for three days to let them eat grain and get used to the robot arm moving up beside them. To allow time for the cows to adjust, they were not actually milked by the robots until Feb. 21.

The Dairy One Improver

Got PC? Manage Farm Information Using Your On-Farm Computer Computers are underutilized on many farms. Consequently, the scope of Dairy One services you currently access via your computer are likely underutilized. Your on-farm computer can be a valuable resource when it comes to storing information and providing useful data that can help you make better, more timely decisions for your farm. Below are several ways to use your PC to better organize data, monitor efficiency, receive test results, and more. DHI reports. When it comes to receiving your DHI results, you don't have to wait for paper copies to be mailed to you—simply opt for web reports, which you can view online and download at your convenience. Web reports look exactly like the reports you receive in the mail, but can be accessed easily on your computer. Ask your DHI technician to sign you up for this option on your next test day or go to www.drms.org. You can keep the option for mailed reports, or choose paperless reports only and save postage and handling charges. Herd Management Software. Do you know which cows to breed today? To sell? To check for pregnancy? For comprehensive monitoring of production, reproduction, treatments, vaccinations, and more, choose herd management software that is right for your dairy. Dairy Comp 305 is the choice for large dairies, Dairy Comp LS is great for mid- to large-size dairies, and Scout is an excellent option for small- to mid-size dairies. We also sell and support PCDART herd management software. All of these programs allow you to monitor changes in your herd and allow you to make more timely decisions. Most of the software works with daily milk meter interfaces, which automatically retrieve milk weights for each cow after each milking. Parlor performance can then be evaluated in Dairy Comp using some simple reports and criteria. Dairy One also offers two handheld devices that work with herd management software: Pocket Dairy for PCDART, and Pocket Cow Card for Dairy Comp. You can take the handheld with you anywhere for easy access to herd information and quick, easy data entry when you’re on the go. The devices sync back to the herd management software on your computer. Support for all of these products is available through amr@dairyone.com, or by calling our toll-free number at 1-800496-3344.

results, a grower or consultant can determine the effectiveness of an applied fertility program over time. Contact soil@dairyone.com for more information. FeedWatch software. Take the guesswork out of feeding with FeedWatch software, which allows you to track progress with reports, including projected usage, dry matter intake, feed efficiency, and more. FeedWatch features wireless radio communication between the mixer and your office computer, and the software coordinates data transfer in real time for the most up-todate information. Use FeedWatch to automatically schedule feed loads, as well as create and schedule loads to maximize mixer capacity. TankWatch software. Would you like immediate notification when your bulk tank values reach certain levels? Monitor your bulk tank with webbased TankWatch software. You (or anyone else you designate) can receive alerts and text messages when values reach a certain level. TankWatch data is available to members of Dairylea, Dairylea’s affiliated cooperatives, or DFA. Visit www.tankwatch.biz to register online, or contact the Agricultural Management Resources group at amr@dairyone.com. Camera Systems. Have you ever wanted a better way to monitor your fresh cow and calving pens, milking parlor, and fuel tanks? Dairy One offers complete camera systems to meet all of these needs. Keep an eye on dayto-day operations with camera systems that allow you to monitor video feeds from cameras anywhere on your farm. Review and scan recorded video, and view cameras from other computers on the network, or via the Internet with remote access, allowing you to view operations even when you’re on the go. Dairy One can provide complete network solutions for your barn computer and camera setup. Contact amr@dairyone.com for more information. Fields and Crops Manager Software. Organize all of your crop information in one convenient location with Field and Crops Manager Software. Access field acres, history, manure records, soil lab test results, and more. Use the Rotation Planning tool to plan next year's crops by field, generate to-do lists, and produce FSA reports quickly and easily. Gather more useful information that can be used with Fields and Crops Manager software with a weather station. WeatherLink software syncs with the station, which provides detailed analysis and graphing. Log weather data on a daily basis, including rainfall, wind speed, and wind direction. Your on-farm computer is an indispensable tool that helps you manage your farm and make well-informed decisions for your operation. Learn more about these options and other ways to integrate computer technology on your farm by contacting your DHI technician, or call Dairy One at 1-800-496-3344. You can also learn more about these services at www.dairyone.com.

Forage analysis results. The Dairy One Forage Lab is an industry leader in analyzing feed, forage, manure, water and a host of other products. They also have a friendly, professional customer service team available to answer questions and provide results via phone or fax. When testing forage samples, turnaround time is often critical in order to make decisions regarding ration changes and optimal harvest times. Therefore, for even faster turnaround, choose to receive your results via e-mail. Be sure to include your e-mail address on lab submission forms to take advantage of this option. Contact forage@dairyone.com for more information. Soil analysis results. The Agro One soils laboratory is a state-of-the-art lab and like the forage lab, they are also dedicated to providing fast, accurate results. Choose to receive your soil analysis results via e-mail to help you make timely, informed decisions regarding nutrient management. Fields and Crops Manager software users can store their soil data within the program for accurate recordkeeping and easily accessible field history. By keeping good records of your test


Currently the Leeches are milking 240 head with robotics and another 100 head in their parlor. “We have more cows than the four robots can milk, and we didn’t want to reduce our herd size. We really need six robots but didn’t want to make that large of an investment without having any robotic experience,” said Beau. The Leeches are very happy with their decision to add robotics to

their operation. With the robotic milkers, high producing cows can be milked up to six times per day, the human variability is removed during milking, and heat detection is easier. The working environment is more enjoyable, and the Leeches are provided with a wealth of information they did not have before. Individualized feeding has also been a plus, and the cows are happier, more content, and calmer. The biggest

drawback the Leeches have seen with their new system is getting through the first several months of the human learning curve. A lot has changed since the start of Ingleside Dairy in 1967, but the willingness of the Leeches to give new technologies a try is what has allowed them to become more and more efficient and productive over the years — two things that are a must in today’s industry! The Leech Family (from L to R): Charlie Leech IV, Linda Leech, Mackey Williams Leech, Jennifer Leech, and Charlie “Beau” Leech V, proudly stand in front of their new facilities at Ingleside Dairy.

Vermeer announces next generation of Rancher® Balers The Vermeer Rancher® Balers offer customers a right-sized, right-priced baler for their ranch, with the ability to produce large-diameter bales that can be easily moved and fed. And now, the next generation of Rancher Balers from Vermeer is here with the introduction of the Rancher 6640 and Rancher 6650 Balers. “Rancher Balers are built to meet the needs of our cost-conscience customers, while still providing the features they need on their ranch,” said Phil Chrisman, Vermeer Product Manager. “Now, the Rancher Baler models include features such as standard flotation tires and improved Haysaver wheels, enhancements meant to make the Rancher Balers an even better fit for these customers.” Standard flotation tires (31x13.5L15) on the Rancher 6640 and 6650 Balers offer improved flotation for smoother handling on rough terrains over previous Rancher Baler models. In addition, the improved design of the Haysaver wheels make adjustments simple, using just a few turns of the wrench, and the addition of a radial pin clutch at the pick-up provides better durability and reliability. The new Rancher Balers come standard with the Bale Expert™ monitor offering user-

HARRISBURG, PA — Dairy industry professionals should plan to attend the October series of Dairy PROS meetings to garner alternative profitability strategies to share with their dairy farm customers. Held three times a year, Dairy PROS is a joint initiative of the Center for Dairy Excellence and the Penn State Extension Dairy Team. It offers the opportunity for participants to gain new in-

sight, learn different processes and find more resources to help their dairy farm customers. “This October, we are inviting participants of Dairy PROS to come prepared to share in a robust discussion around dairy profitability strategies they see working well across Pennsylvania’s dairy farm community,” said John Frey, executive director of the Center for Dairy Excellence. “We

are hoping the meetings will serve as a good venue to share ideas and identify best practices to support dairy farm families as they work through this year’s tighter profit margins.” In October, the “Take It to the Farm” section will also address alternative profit strategies, with representatives from Penn State Extension leading a roundtable discussion on tools to analyze profit areas

on the farm. Participants will walk away with new resources that they can use in helping their customers and clients identify bottlenecks on the dairy. A complement to “Take It to the Farm,” the “Top 10 in Dairy” segment presented by the Center for Dairy Excellence will highlight the ten key issues affecting dairy farms right at that very moment. All meetings will be from 8–9:30 a.m., with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Meeting dates and locations are: • Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Farm and Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road, Lancaster, Lancaster Co. • Thursday, Oct. 18, at the AgChoice Farm Credit office, 109 Farm Credit Drive, Chambers-

burg, Franklin Co. • Friday, Oct. 19, at Celebration Hall, 2280 Commercial Blvd., State College, Centre Co. • Thursday, Oct. 25, at King’s Restaurant, 1920 Leesburg Road, Grove City, Mercer Co. The cost of Dairy PROS meetings is partially offset by a grant from the Department of Labor & Industry’s Workforce Investment Board. A new approach to registering for Dairy PROS offers an incentive to companies that support the center’s Allies for Advancement Program. If an organization is a 2012 supporter of the Allies for Advancement Program at any level above $250, any member of the organization can attend the Dairy PROS meetings at no charge. If the organization is not

an Ally for Advancement, each member from that organization who attends the Dairy PROS meetings will be charged a $20 registration fee.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You Start your day with peanut butter (NAPSA) — If you’re looking for a better way to start the day, try some peanut butter. This nutrient-dense food is a smart option for breakfast because it’s filling and tastes great. Two tablespoons of smooth-style peanut butter offers 8 grams of plant-based protein and more than 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients. “Making time for breakfast and choosing a meal that has fiber, protein and good fats can play a role in maintaining a healthy diet,” said Registered Dietitian Sherry Coleman Collins. “Research shows that a balanced breakfast including fruit, whole grains and protein such as peanut butter gives you the fuel and nutrients needed to stave off hunger until lunchtime.” Here are four easy breakfast ideas: 1. Swirl peanut butter into oatmeal. 2. Add smooth-style peanut butter into a breakfast smoothie for an easy portable meal. 3. Toast whole grain frozen waffles and top with peanut butter instead of syrup for a low-sugar start to the day. 4. Spread peanut butter on whole grain bread and top with slices of banana. According to National Peanut Board research, 90 percent of American households contain one or more jars of peanut butter. For a new twist, try one of the slightly indulgent gourmet chocolate peanut butters, such as those from Peanut Butter & Co. or Sunland Peanut Butter. Flavored peanut butter is a great way to perk up a dull breakfast routine.

USDA announces 2012 Beginning Farmer Awards On Aug. 30, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced $18 million in funding to support new farmer training and education programs at the 2012 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. These new grant awards were made available through the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) — a federal competitive grants program administered by USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. BFRDP provides the training and tools that the next generation of farmers needs to be successful. The program supports financial and entrepreneurial training, risk management education, mentoring and apprenticeship programs, innovative farm transfer and transition practices, and other educational activities to assist beginning farmers and ranchers across the country. BFRDP is targeted especially to collaborative local, state, and regionally based networks and partnerships. “The future of American agriculture depends on cultivating the next generation of farmers and ranchers,” said Juli Obudzinski, Policy Associate with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition. “BFRDP is the only federal program dedicated to training new farmers. Over the past four years, the program has funded a wide variety of successful initiatives to help new farmers start a career in agriculture.” Over the past four years, BFRDP has invested over $70 million in new farmer training programs across the country, and has funded 145 projects in 46 states. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack stressed the importance of supporting the next generation of farmers, and has repeatedly issued a national challenge to create 100,000 new farmers. In the first year of the program alone, USDA funded projects that supported training for 5,000 new producers, and in 2011, grants supported training for more than 30,000. Clearly, there is still a long way to go to meet this challenge, but this program is helping to address the dire need for new farmers on the land all across the country. Groups who work directly with beginning farmers also spoke at today’s

award announcement in Iowa. Leigh Adcock, the Executive Director of the Women, Food, and Agriculture Network (WFAN) — a non-profit organization and NSAC member based in Ames, Iowa — addressed the importance of providing the next generation of farmers with the resources they need to be successful and stressed how critical BFRDP funding is to organizations that support new farmers on the ground. “WFAN has been working with women farmers for 15 years, and we’ve witnessed an enormous surge in numbers over the past decade,” said Adcock. “We’re thrilled to be able to help new and aspiring women farmers in Iowa and Nebraska reach their farm business goals with the help of our new three-year BFRDP grant.” 2012 Awards For Fiscal Year 2012, $18 million was awarded to support projects in 27 states across the country, including projects in Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. Of the 40 grants that were announced, we are pleased to announce that six were awarded to NSAC member organizations, including grants to Dakota Rural Action (South Dakota), Food System Economic Partnership (Michigan), Future Harvest – Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture (Maryland; award to University of Maryland), Growing Power (Wisconsin), Land Stewardship Project (Minnesota, for work in 14 states), Women, Food and Agriculture Network (Iowa, for work in Iowa and Nebraska). “This BFRDP grant gives us the opportunity to both encourage new farmers and to engage current farmers in helping to shape the next generation,” said Meredith Redlin, Board Chair for Dakota Rural Action. “There are so many opportunities in agriculture for young farmers. Capturing those opportunities will establish a base for the fu-

ture sustainability of our rural communities.” More information on BRFDP awards to NSAC member organizations is available on NSAC’s website. Future of BFRDP The new farmer grants announced Aug. 30 are the latest round of grants for this program authorized in the current farm bill cycle. Current funding for the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program expires on Sept. 30 this year, and unless Congress acts on reauthorizing the farm bill or provides for a short-term extension of the current farm bill that explicitly provides for new BFRDP funding, the program could completely vanish for at least a year. In today’s awards announcement, Secretary Vilsack stressed the need for Congress to do its work and pass a farm bill in order to give producers the

“There’s no reason that this can’t be done,” Vilsack said. “Whatever differences exist can be worked out.” “Given the demonstrated success and growing demand for new farmer training programs, it is critical to our future food security and vitality of our rural communities that this valuable program be renewed and provided continued funding in the next farm bill,” said Obudzinski. “With over half of our country’s farmers reaching or exceeding retirement age within the next 10 years, cutting funding for BFRDP would be a huge step backwards in addressing the urgent need for resources and tools to support the next generation of farmers and the future of American agriculture. We urge Congress to pass the new farm bill and include robust funding for BFRDP to support the new economic opportunities that will help reform the farm and food system.”

Save money by properly sealing your silage by Keith Bolsen, Professor Emeritus with Kansas State University and Ruthie Bolsen, Managing Director with Keith Bolsen & Associates With the price of feedstuffs today, sealing and protecting silage has never been more important. When it comes time to seal corn silage this harvest remember, what you choose to cover and seal it with matters. Many different products exist on the market to seal bunkers and drive-over piles, but not all are equal. Selecting the right covering material and properly sealing corn silage can have a significant economic impact. Losses from unsealed or incorrectly sealed corn silage exceed a quarter billion dollars every year. Money is lost from both spoiled silage, which has to be discarded, and from decreased nutritional value of the silage itself. Pitching spoiled silage is also a safety hazard for employees. Eliminating the need to pitch surface spoilage could save your life or someone else’s, because you’ve eliminated the hazard. To protect ensiled feeds and combat these losses look to an oxygen barrier

film. Oxygen barrier film is 60 times more effective at protecting silage from oxygen than standard plastic covers. Oxygen barrier film will reduce dry matter loss in the outer 1.5 to 3 feet of silage by 50 percent or more compared to regular bunker covers. It is advised to look for the term “oxygen transmission rate” or OTR when selecting a covering material. Choose a product with a very low OTR number and ask for the test data that backs the number. The lower the number, the less oxygen will get through. It’s also advisable to consider using a two-layer system to cover ensiled forage or grain. The first layer prevents oxygen from getting in and the second layer protects the oxygen barrier film from damaging ultraviolet light.

Farmers should prepare now for late summer/ early fall storms With nearly 10 named storms already this season, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (VDACS) urges all farmers to prepare ahead of time for power outages, structural or crop damage, insurance claims and damage that can accompany a natural disaster such as a tropical storm or hurricane. Long-range preparations can include purchasing or making rental agreements for special equipment, making adjustments to property and reviewing business arrangements. Short-range preparations should focus on immediate concerns such as turning off propane, moving livestock or equipment to safe places or updating phone numbers for emergency assistance. Equipment needs may include a generator, fuel, a hand fuel pump, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, a flashlights and batteries, NOAA weather radio and batteries, stored water and feed for humans and livestock and a camera to document damage. Photos of agricultural losses are very helpful to the USDA, especially with their livestock indemnity programs. Tobacco farms or nursery operations with greenhouses, dairies, and hog and poultry operations are especially vulnerable if power remains out for a lengthy period. Those farmers may want to purchase a generator. Farmers who cannot purchase a generator should consider leasing or negotiating a rental arrangement for a back-up generator in advance. Be aware that some rental contracts are only for eight hours use per day. Property preparations can include clearing de-

bris from drainage ditches so water can run freely, checking power lines for clearance and pruning or removing trees that could fall on lines, surveying buildings for limbs or trees close to buildings and pounding in extra nails or tightening hurricane straps to prevent wind damage. Other precautions include clearing away all debris that could blow in high winds, securing farm signs and photographing valuable items and storing the pictures off site. Farmers and home owners alike should store all business records above flood level, which is generally at least two feet off the floor. A final long-range preventive measure is reviewing business affairs, including insurance policies, debt level and finances. Farmers need to ensure they have adequate insurance coverage for homes, vehicles, farm buildings and structures, crops and flood damage. Finally, farmers should develop an emergency plan for their families and their farm workers and should establish a meeting place where everyone can gather after a disaster. They also need to assign and prioritize preparation and recovery duties. Short-range preparations are those things to do once the weather report indicates a problem storm is brewing. These include: • Monitoring local weather reports for upto-the-minute information on the storm.

• Charging batteries on cell phones and cameras. • Determining checkin points for family members and workers. • Storing or securing items or equipment that may blow away or blow into structures, including lawn furniture and ornaments. • Checking generators to be sure they are in good working order and purchasing sufficient amounts of fuel to operate them. • Checking feed inventory and ordering extra if needed. • Moving poultry and livestock to higher ground if possible and sheltering them in securely battened barns, houses or tightlyfenced areas. • Planning for the possibility of evacuation and identifying horse facilities in nearby vicinities that are willing to take horses in an emergency. Find out what their requirements are for vaccinations or tests such as the Coggins Test. Have a system for permanently identifying each horse with its name, your name and a phone number. • Turning off the propane supply at tanks and securing tanks in the event of flooding to prevent them from floating away. • Moving equipment to the highest, open ground possible away from trees or buildings. • Pumping and storing adequate supplies of drinking water for humans and animals in the case of power outages. VDACS recommends a minimum 36-hour reserve.

• Topping off all gas, propane and other fuel tanks, including the family vehicles. • Marking animals with an identifier so they can be returned to you if lost. This can include ear tags with name of farm and/or phone numbers, brands, paint markings on hooves or coat or clipped initials in the hair. • Moving feed to higher ground or to a more accessible place in case of flooding or transportation problems. • Checking the securi-

ty of roofing materials, siding and windows and doors in barns and poultry houses to make sure they will not blow off or blow open in strong winds. • Coordinating with neighbors beforehand to discuss what resources can be shared in the event of power outages or flooding. • Making a list of important phone numbers ahead of time in order to make calls following a storm. Potential numbers to include are the local emergency man-

agement office, county extension agent, insurance agent, county Farm Service Agency and private veterinarian. For local emergency offices, contact the Virginia Department of Emergency Management ahead of time, or log on to vaemergency.gov/. Being prepared for storms and hurricanes could help farmers limit their losses, but preparation needs to begin now, before a problem storm hits.

As the world’s middle class nearly triples in number, demand for meat, dairy products and eggs is expected to rise by as much as 100 percent by 2050. The question is, can agricultural production meet that demand without causing extensive environmental damage? A North Carolina State University professor was among a group of U.S. academics who addressed this question in the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology Issue Paper, Water and Land Issues Associated with Animal Agriculture: A U.S. Perspective. Dr. Kelly Zering, associate professor and extension specialist in agricultural and resource economics in North Carolina State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, served as chair of a group of five university faculty and a consulting environmental engineer who explored the issue of increased livestock production and environmental impacts. Their paper responded to a 2006 issue paper of

the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, Livestock’s Long Shadow. Dr. Len Bull, North Carolina State animal science professor emeritus, and Dr. Sarah Liehr, a former North Carolina State research associate, submitted a proposal for CAST to consider a response paper, and ultimately Zering was asked to serve as lead author of the report, published in August. The authors concluded that the U.S. model for environmental protection of land and water resources, while not perfect, has achieved substantial improvements. And though Zering is optimistic about the world’s ability to meet production demands and protect resources, there are still issues to address. “I was surprised at the magnitude of the challenges ahead. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, it seemed like we had too much agricultural production – grain prices were low, and growers were paid not to produce. We have come full cycle now, with tight supplies of food,”

Zering said. “With a larger wealthy population in the world, we are consuming more and driving up prices.” The FAO’s report emphasized negative impacts of animal production on the environment, Zering said. Those included overgrazing, water pollution caused by both animal and crop production and agriculture’s use of large amounts of freshwater for irrigation. The CAST report reviewed the science behind the FAO’s claims and looked at steps taken by the U.S. to protect land and water resources and came up with a different picture. “We tried to point out that the U.S. has been engaged in programs to reduce the impact of agriculture for decades now,” Zering said. Among the programs cited in the CAST report are: • Soil conservation programs such as the Conservation Reserve. • The integration of regulation with education and research to minimize environmental impacts of livestock

production. • Best Management Practices, reflected in U.S. Department of Agriculture technical handbooks and Natural Resource Conservation Service fact sheets, designed to help livestock producers build devices or structures and implement practices to minimize pollution on rangelands and other types of intensive livestock operations. In addition, Zering said the U.S. land-grant system of integrated research, education and extension has helped agriculture make great strides in production and in environmental stewardship. The developed world has such an abundant, affordable food supply, Zering said, “that maybe we’ve overlooked the need to continue increasing productivity.” “Are we investing enough in agricultural research and education to continue to make the kinds of gains we’ve made in the past?” he said; the gains that will be needed to meet a doubling demand without compromising environ-

mental quality. The question gets to the heart of the landgrant mission. In addition to helping growers produce more, landgrant research and education have produced environmental benefits, Zering said. Among those are the use of less fertilizer, less water and fewer chemicals to produce livestock and crops. The CAST report has generated attention that will add travel to Zering’s calendar. He’s been invited to address a conference and meet with environmental officials in Beijing. In addition to spread-

ing the word about the benefits of an education and research system like the U.S. land-grants, Zering plans to sing North Carolina State University’s praises, based on conclusions from this research project. “I think [North Carolina] State stands out as one of the elite agricultural universities in the world, in terms of its comprehensive coverage of agriculture and the environment. This broad expertise reflects the diversity of agriculture and the rich environmental resources in this state,” Zering said. “I think we have a jewel here.”
