With a chicken house turned freestall barn, Haiglers become dairy farmers by Karl H. Kazaks MONROE, NC — “Everybody said it wouldn’t work,” Steve Haigler said. “‘Chicken houses are not built for cows.’” But for the past year — since April 10, 2012, when the Haiglers milked cows for the first time, when (after years of research) they became dairy farmers — the Haiglers have proven that you can adapt a chicken house to a freestall barn. “What’s made it work is the tunnel fans,” Steve said. “With just ceiling fans it wouldn’t work.” The family farm — led today by Steve and his wife Reba and their son Evan — has been raising chickens here in North Carolina’s southern Piedmont for over 100 years. At their peak, the Haiglers operated 13 broiler houses. But a few years ago, when their processor asked them to convert their conventional curtain-sided houses to tunnel houses, the Haiglers decided not to make that investment. They had already converted two houses to tunnel houses — which they still use to raise broilers — but the other houses, some of which had already been renovated in previous eras, they closed. Losing the income from the shuttered houses, Evan said, was “devastating.” “It was like getting fired,” Steve said. The family looked into new sources of farm income. They were already raising beef cattle and crops — including corn, wheat, soybeans and Sudex. They thought about increasing

their beef herd, but were looking for something with more regular cash flow. So they took a close look at dairying. The family did a lot of research, Reba said, to make sure it would work for them and their farm. Steve and Evan visited dairies in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. “We figured it could work with used equipment,” Reba said (and a novel approach to animal housing). They found equipment at an out-of-business dairy in Gladys, VA. “We wanted to buy their headlocks and freestalls,” Evan said, “but he would only sell them if we took his parlor, too.” So the Haiglers bought the whole lot. They spent over a year constructing a parlor “when we weren’t in the field,” Evan said. Today they use their double-9 parlor to milk about 60 Holsteins 2x. “We started small to see if it works for us,” Reba said. “We didn’t think we could go bust on sixty,” said Steve. They sold some of the beef cows to help pay for the parlor and the milking cows. The recent rise in the price of beef helped them finance the transition at the cost of fewer beef cows. “When we were planning the dairy,” Evan said, “it took about three beef cows to buy one dairy cow. We were able to buy one dairy cow buy selling one cow-calf pair.” The Haiglers had already been making hay and silage for their beef cattle, so they had hay- and silage-making equipment and knowledge. They did

dig two new silage trenches. But the whole operation hinged on making an old chicken house work as a barn for cows. The house they decided to use was a 40’ x 200’ chicken house, originally built in the 1950s (it still has the original concrete block foundation) and renovated in 1985. They put in eight 48” tunnel fans at one end of the house, installed water lines to use as foggers, and poured concrete through most of the house. The concrete pad encompasses the area of the freestalls and beyond the headgates, but there is still a dirt aisle along one side of the house, past the headgates. The Haiglers didn’t want to build a thick pad all the way to the edge of the house, as the added floor height could cause the tractor pulling the mix wagon to hit the rafters. As it is, at feeding time the tires on one side of the tractor ride on the concrete pad while the tires the other side ride on the dirt lane. In retrospect, Steve says, he would have liked to put the pad in all the way to the wall of the house, making it slope downward the last few feet to make sure the tractor could still pass under the roof system. He’s even thinking adding a sloped concrete pad like that way to cover the dirt lane. The Haiglers also poured a concrete lane to connect their barn to their parlor. Last summer, they realized that had to make another modification to their new barn. With the temperature rising, the foggers and tunnel fans weren’t keeping the interior of the barn cool enough. There wasn’t time to buy a commercial cool cell unit, so the Haiglers decided to make one themselves. First, they tried spraying water at the entrance of the barn opposite the fans. That wasn’t sufficient, so they built a vestibule-like space at that entrance of the barn and covered all three sides with shade cloth they had on hand for their chicken houses. Then they ran pipe to have nozzles spray water onto the cloth. “It made a big difference,” Reba said. In addition to housing management, the Haiglers have also had to learn a new approach to calf management. Dealing with dairy calves, they realized, isn’t quite the same as dealing beef calves. The Haiglers credit Dr. Karen Jordan of Siler City for helping them learn about how to care for dairy calves. “You’ve got to make sure they get what they need,” Evan said. Aside from practical details, Reba noted that, “in terms of

time commitment, milking cows is not much different than chickens.” Now that the Haiglers have found that they can make dairying work, they’re looking to expand the size of their herd to about 120 in the next year or so. That’ll mean converting another chicken house — this time probably a 400’ long house (with more than eight tunnel fans) — but now the Haiglers know how to make the transition work.

Deciding to become a dairy was a major decision for the Haiglers. “Raising chickens is all I’d ever done,” said Steve. The transition, he said, “was nerve-wracking. But we think this is going to work. “I’ve got to chop barley now. I’ve never chopped barley before — do you think it’ll turn out?” Given how the Haiglers have managed and met other challenges in recent years, no doubt their barley silage will turn out just fine.

by Jennifer Showalter STAUNTON, VA — Believed to be the largest show of its kind east of the Mississippi, the Augusta County 4-H and FFA Market Animal Show is more than just any little county show. With 68 years in the books now, this annual outing has quite the story behind it. The show has been held at the Staunton Union Stockyard since its beginning. In those days the show was referred to as the Baby Beef Show. Exhibitors experimented with fattening cattle on grain for a short period of time so the beef would be ready for market in less than two years from the date of birth. In the 1950s the show’s name changed to the Fat Stock Show. Exhibitors were allowed to show sheep and hogs in addition to the fattened steers. The organizers at the time wanted the agricultural community to see that there were advantages to good breeding and feed rationing. They also wanted to provide the youth with a learning experience. The show changed its name once again during the 70s to the Market Animal Show. With more and more participants and livestock, the show was spread over a twoday period with the sale on the evening of the second day. With only a few changes over the past 68 years, the Augusta County 4-H and FFA Market Animal Show is still going strong. This year around 200 4-H and FFA members from Augusta County came together for two days of stiff completion. With 101 market steers, 157 market hogs, and 204 market lambs being exhibited, the Staunton Union Stockyard quickly turned into the happening place. Kyle Cupp, Ohio State University’s Livestock Judging coach, had the task of sorting through all of the classes and working with the exhibitors. Jake McCall exhibited the grand champion steer. This 1350 choice plus grade steer sold to White Hill Catering, JP Lee Hills Farms, Don Benner, T & J Cattle Company, Holly Hill Farm, Daltons on the Sycamore, Middlebrook Farms, Brown Cattle Company, CSF Cattle Company, Ward Realty, C. Wojo Cattle Company, Sheerwood Farm, and Ron Clark for $4 per pound. Jonathan Powell exhibited the reserve grand champion steer. This 1320 choice minus grade steer sold to Augusta Cooperative for $2.20 per pound. Kyle Gray exhibited the grand champion lamb. This 130 pound lamb sold to JT and Laura Begoon for $15 per pound. Hannah Cox of Staunton stood next in line with the reserve grand champing lamb. Also weighing in at 130 pounds, this

lamb sold for $9 a pound to Cattleman Supply. Zach McCall exhibited the grand champion market hog. His 270 hog sold to Real McCoy Genetics for $6 per pound. Olivia Grace Blackwell followed with the reserve grand champion market hog. Her 245 pound hog sold for $3 per a pound to Medical Centers Pharmacy. The highlight of this year’s sale was not the sale of the champions, but rather a generous donation by one of the exhibitors. Nathan Zullig donated the proceeds from his lamb sale to the American Cancer Society in honor of his grandmother, Mrs. Simonetti, who is battling ovarian cancer. The lamb sold for $20 a pound to Tom and Peggy Sheets who donated the animal back to Zullig. Zullig, from the Stewart Middle School FFA, promptly re-sold the lamb and it brought $10 a pound from Charlie and Eric Obaugh. When all was said and done, his lamb raised $3,900 for cancer research. Grossing $394,679, the sale was up $20,000 from last year. Overall, the steers averaged $1.68 per pound, the lambs averaged $4.48 per pound, and the hogs averaged $1.80 per pound. The money the youth hopefully made was one thing, but the educational experiences and friendships created at the 2013 Augusta County 4-H and FFA Market Animal Show far out valued anything else. “Each

exhibitor gets a full year’s lesson in life skills. They learn how to plan, organize, prioritize, and budget their time. Youth who participate in this event take full responsibility for their project animals. Their parents provide support, but ultimately it is up to each individual exhibitor to make the best out of their project animals. Even though this event depends largely on individual independence and self-direction, the youth also work together to foster a spirit of cooperation among exhibitors. Older exhibitors mentor young exhibitors and help show them the ropes of exhibiting. Exhibitors learn responsibility and leadership. Even though many adult volunteers make the show happen each year, the exhibitors are doing their part to make the show a reality. This includes more than just getting their individual animals ready for the show. It is a tremendous learning and growth experience for everyone involved,” says volunteer Betty Jo Hamilton. Each year the show is dedicated to an individual or couple who has helped the Market Animal Show be the success that it is. This year’s show was dedicated to J.R. and Betty Coleman. The Colemans have been longtime supporters of the Market Animal Show. Roughly 20 years ago they organized a 4-H club in Middlebrook, VA specifically to promote youth involvement in the Market Animal Show. The original club had more than 100

members with an equal number of adult volunteers. Another 4-H livestock club grew out of the original Middlebrook club. “Both clubs remain active today and are largely responsible for the tremendous youth interest in the Market Animal Show,” says Hamilton. Even though this event has a long history, it still takes a tremendous amount of planning and team work each year. Turning the stockyard into a show-friendly place for two days in between normal weekly auctions is no easy task. “It takes a

Herculean effort to mount this exhibition each year. Adult volunteers, supporting organizations, and area businesses are all vital to the success of this event. Each organization that supports this event makes it possible for Augusta County’s youth to have a showcase livestock event. There are behindthe-scenes efforts from so many folks that make this show a success. It’s an event that proves each year what is possible when everyone works together to support young people in our county,” says Hamilton.

Giant sundae in Harrisburg commemorates 76th June Dairy Month PHILADELPHIA, PA — Pennsylvania’s dairy promotion organizations celebrated June Dairy Month with the creation of a colossal ice cream sundae built during the Family Favorites Festival in Harrisburg today. The annual salute to dairy farmers is sponsored by MidAtlantic Dairy Association and Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program on behalf of commonwealth dairy farmers, who work together to promote milk and dairy products. Dairy is the largest segment of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry, generating more than $2.3 billion in economic activity annually. Each year, Pennsylvania’s 541,000 dairy cows produce 10.5 billion pounds, or 5.4 percent, of the nation’s total supply of milk annually.

“Is there anything better than simple, wholesome milk? It’s a food that I feel good giving to my children, and I’m proud to provide it for your family, too,” said Kathy Walton, a Cumberland County dairy farmer who spoke on behalf of the state’s dairy farmers. “The milk at your local grocery store is simply produced and delivered to you fresh, packed with nutrients vital to good health.” Joining Walton with opening remarks, Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture George Greig read Gov. Corbett’s proclamation declaring June is Dairy Month in the Commonwealth. Pennsylvania Dairy Princess Maria Jo Noble and other dairy princesses from across the state helped with the day’s festivities. Following the opening

remarks, volunteers created the giant sundae using 90 gallons of Turkey Hill vanilla ice cream. The mountain of ice cream was covered with 10 gallons of chocolate fudge, 10 gallons of cherries and 30 pounds of chopped pecans. The sundae was topped off with real whipped cream and a giant, 12-inch ball of cherries. “June’s 30 days are a wonderful opportunity to salute the 7,200 Pennsylvania families who produce 5.4 percent of the nation’s total milk supply,” said Patty Purcell, CEO of MidAtlantic Dairy Association. “Dairy farmers take great pride in caring for their animals. The public can be assured that dairy farmers are dedicated and committed to providing your family with a delicious and nutritious food. Your milk comes from a good place!” Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association and PennsDairy Animal Show’s ylvania Promotion

Past, present Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretaries urge Congress to support Market-Oriented National Dairy Program Agriculture Secretary George Greig and former Secretary Dennis Wolff are asking Congress to reject a proposal in the 2013 Farm Bill that would require dairy producers to limit their milk production during certain market conditions. In a letter to Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation, Greig and Wolff said the proposed Dairy Market Stabilization Program within the

Dairy Security Act holds unintended consequences for Pennsylvania’s dairy industry and consumers. “One-size-fits-all government management of commodity supply and demand doesn’t work,” said Greig. “Restricting milk supplies across the board, especially in areas of the country like the Mid Atlantic where there is a milk deficit, increases costs for con-

sumers and hurts the dairy industry.” Greig, a former dairy farmer, and Wolff, a current dairy farmer, instead encouraged support of the Dairy Freedom Act. The bipartisan compromise, offered by Representatives Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and David Scott (D-GA), establishes a safety net for dairy producers without mandating they participate in a government-run supply

management program. “The Dairy Freedom Act can help the dairy industry meet growth in domestic and international consumer demand,” said Greig. “It removes unnecessary regulatory burdens on dairy businesses and provides opportunities for market expansion, new jobs and economic growth.” National dairy exports have shown substantial growth over the past

RECORDS RECOGNIZE ENERGY CORRECTED MILK (ECM) BASIS - Over the years, totals have recognized milk, fat, and protein production. Since 1989, high herds on a county and state basis, along with all individual production awards, have been made on an (ECM) basis. The ECM formula (7.2 x lbs protein) + (12.95 x lbs fat) + (.327 x lbs milk) has helped identify cows that not only produce high volumes of milk, but also of milk solids. Maryland dairy producers are using the ECM formula and no longer mention lbs of fat or lbs of 3.5% fat corrected milk, since fat has become a negative word in promoting dairy and other food products.

To reduce the risk of lameness, you should provide a transition cow with adequate bedding and stall size, do not force the cow to stand for extended periods and minimize the cow’s exposure to hard surfaces. Early warning signs of lameness include an arch in the back, cowhocked rear legs and improper tracking.

mother for immunity. Heifers generally produce inferior colostrum than mature cows. So, if your heifer is unable to provide adequate quantity or quality of colostrum, you should use a colostrum supplement or replacer. For quantity, a calf requires 12 to 15 percent of its body weight in colostrum within one hour of birth to get the antibodies it needs. For quality, colostrum should have a thick, creamy texture and color with a high antibody concentration. I suggest using a Brix refractometer, which scores the quality of the colostrum on a numerical scale and the colostrum can be tested at any temperature. You should always measure the antibody concentration of

Q: I like to feed colostrum directly from a calf’s dam but am unsure about the colostrum quality from my first-calf heifers. When should I consider using a colostrum supplement or replacer?

by Hubert J. Karreman Hi Folks, You know we’re in peak pasture season when the cows are outside day and night, only to come into the barn for milking. At this time, it’s really important to prevent lameness, so cows can graze with ease. Everyone agrees that we don’t want to have cows experiencing lameness, especially during grazing season… but too many of them do. Besides the obviously lame cow that a person who’s nearly blind can diagnose, do we know what earlier signs to look for? And then do we know how to effectively correct the condition? To begin with, about 90-95 percent of all lameness begins with a problem in a hoof. Conditions will show as irregular gait and short-

ened stride length, at least to some degree, according to the British dairy consulting company DairyCo. In their lameness scoring system, a completely normal, healthy cow (“0”) walks with a flat back, even weight-bearing, and long easy strides. A slightly lame cow (“1”) will step unevenly or have a slightly shortened stride, but the affected limb may not be immediately identifiable. A “2” will have uneven weightbearing on a limb that is easily identifiable and/or take shortened strides, and the back will have a slight curve to it. A “3” is reluctant or unable to walk the speed of a person, cannot keep up with the healthy herd, and has an obvious curve to the back. Any time a cow walks and her head bobs up, there is a lame limb

to identify — just like in horses. Common causes of lameness are due to environmental factors such as stones in laneways, and nutritional factors such as too much grain for the amount of fiber offered and/or lack of appropriate minerals in the diet for hoof health. Excess muck in the barnyard or slogging through mud will keep hooves damp, and this will allow any festering condition more chance to create damage. In a normal cow, the outer hoof of each rear limb and the inner hoof of each front limb bear the most weight. Therefore, lameness will occur and appears sooner in these particular areas of the limbs. Also, cows bear 60 percent of their

Moo from A17 weight upon the front part of their body, so they show lameness in the front limbs more quickly than on the back which bears less weight. Cows have a great ability to hide lameness since they can rely on the other toe of their two toes if needed. By the time they actually show lameness to any degree (a “1”, “2” or “3”), they need to be tended to, or grazing time and production will be affected. Color of hoof can also make a difference, with white hooves being softer and less resistant to lameness, and black hooves being more resistant to lameness. The positive side to white hooves is that they are easier to work on with a hoof knife, compared to black hooves which are usually extremely hard and brittle. The most common problems in organic, grazing herds that I’ve worked on over the years include hairy heel wart (inter-digital dermatitis), foot rot, abscesses and white line disease. Hairy heel wart only occurs at the hoof-hairline junction on any limb, but most often seems to be on the backside of the rear limb. Foot rot only occurs in the hairless area between the two toes. Abscesses can occur anywhere on the hoof surface in contact with the ground which gets

pierced, while white line disease abscesses occur where the hoof sidewall meets the weight-bearing surface below. I rarely have seen ulcers in organic herds since high fiber/low grain diets prevent the condition. Whether it’s foot rot, hairy heel wart, abscesses or white line disease, I treat them nearly the same way: find the area causing the problem by visual inspection and/or opening it up with a wellsharpened hoof knife to make the area bleed a little to bring in fresh circulation, cleanse for 1/2 minute by rinsing the area with 3 percent hydrogen peroxide, and then wrap using a thick mixture of sugar and povidone iodine (Betadine®). A good amount is 1/2 cup sugar with 20cc Betadine® — this will be enough for about 3 wraps. The wrap should be changed once three days later. In cases of foot rot it must be changed. I realize people don’t like to do extra manual labor, but I can safely say that the above method works the vast majority of the time in my clinical experience with hoof problems — if the initial cause has been correctly identified and addressed. The labor saved with the various sprays that people squirt onto hooves dur-

ing milking time for hairy heel wart are not generally effective and needlessly prolong lameness. Unless very early in the condition, the main reason they don’t work well is that a scab layer quickly forms and becomes a barrier for any kind of spray to get to where it is needed. For grazing cows, the number one thing to do for preventing lameness is to have excellent laneways, since the cows have to walk on them daily. Laneways should be rock-free. Rocks create lameness in two ways: submerged and hidden in mud, or set in place at the surface of very hard and dry ground. Improved laneways are worth the cost, and cost-sharing by NRCS is usually available. Also, if cows are pushed faster than they normally walk, they will then more likely place their hooves onto sharp things without time to re-position their footing. Foot rot, abscesses and white line disease occur when something hard pierces into the weightbearing area of the hooves, or pierces into the area between the two toes. These punctured or torn areas then come into contact with manure, muck or other dirt — a given in the life of dairy cows. Hairy heel wart is a little different in

that it is contagious and the bug seems to be present in areas of accumulated manure/muck. But health of the hoofhairline junction is also a factor in hairy heel wart, as blood circulation to the hoof-hairline junction is very delicate since it’s at the very far end of the limbs. If toxins are circulating in the blood stream (a possibility with chronic low level rumen acidosis) and settle out at the hoof-hairline junction, or, if there is a lack of the right proportion of minerals for proper hoof health, bugs in the environment can lead to hairy heel wart. This is my own theory,

Farm Credit East, the largest lender to Northeast agriculture, recently announced the expansion of their existing

Young, Beginning, Small Farmer Program to include Gulf War-era II veterans. The customerowned financial coopera-

tive provides over $4.69 billion in loans to its members, including 6,628 small farm loans, 4,298 beginning farm

loans and 3,077 young farmer loans (under 36 years of age). “At Farm Credit East we understand that the future of agriculture in the Northeast is dependent on talented individuals entering the industry” said Bill Lipinski, CEO of Farm Credit East. “Therefore it was an easy decision to expand our existing young, beginning, small farmer program to include veterans. Whether veterans are returning to agriculture, or just getting started, they face the same challenges as new entrants.” Gary Bradley, an executive vice president responsible for Farm Credit East’s Young, Beginning and Small Farmer program commented, “We feel our training programs, one-on-one mentoring and consulting and incentives can help make the difference for veterans when developing their farming business.” Under this program, a young farmer is defined as a farmer, rancher, producer or harvester of

DHIA & Dairy Section aquatic products who is 35 years of age or younger as of the loan transaction date. A beginning farmer has 10 years or less of farming experience and a small farmer normally generates gross annual sales of $250,000 or less. A veteran farmer is defined as Gulf War-era II veterans who have served anywhere in the world at any time since September 2001. Farm Credit East has programs in place, such as Young, Beginning and Small Farmers Incentive Program (YBS) and FarmStart, LLP, to assist farmers in the early stages of their business when the demands for capital and financial management skills often make it difficult to establish their business. Through the YBS Incentive program, established in 1994, program participants receive discounts on services such as farm accounting soft-

ware, tax preparation, consulting and appraisal for up to five years. These customers also receive discounts on FSA guaranteed loan fees and interest rate assistance. Farm Credit East’s special incentives for 2012 were $226,038. Farm Credit East is committed to helping new farmers get started in agriculture to continue the Northeast’s legacy of a vibrant, entrepreneurial agricultural community. The future of Northeast agriculture is strong for many reasons, including the diversity of its farm operations along with its wide array of farm products. Northeast farms contribute to a strong agricultural sector that provides wholesome, fresh products to consumers and essential economic activity throughout the rural communities of New England, New York and New Jersey.

if possible, as half-hearted attempts or using a dull hoof knife can lead to much worse conditions since cows can keep walking on the good toe while the bad toe festers worse. A general rule of thumb is that the first attempt at treat-

ment is the best chance to correct a hoof problem. If you prefer not to work on hooves or have not had success on your own, a timely call to a professional hoof trimmer or veterinarian will ensure that your cows graze happily and freely.

Moo from A18 Thank You Dairymen for your hard work, dedication and support. C&C wishes each of you all the best!

Measurement to Management

800.496.3344 • www.dairyone.com DAIRY ONE RECOGNIZES OUTSTANDING QUALITY MILK AWARD WINNERS Each year, Dairy One is pleased to recognize those members whose herds have maintained a rolling herd average somatic cell count of 175,000 or less in the previous calendar year. Winners are presented with a Quality Milk barn sign and a year sticker for the first year that they win the award. Those who have won in previous years are given a year sticker to add to the barn sign, indicating another year of excellence. Award packets are currently being distributed through Dairy One Farm Service Technicians and Market staff. Herds with low somatic cell counts (SCC) tend to be more profitable than herds with high SCC. Increased profit comes from reduced mastitis treatment and veterinary costs, higher milk production per cow and milk quality premiums. Additionally, milk with lower somatic cell counts has a longer shelf life and results in a higher yield of cultured dairy products. Herds producing high quality milk with low SCC set a standard of excellence for the entire industry. Careful milking procedures, good milking equipment maintenance, and excellent herd management using individual cow SCC all contribute to a herd’s low SCC. Out of the approximately 4,500 members that process through DRMS Raleigh and get Record Services through Dairy One, 793 were honored with the Outstanding Quality Milk Award. Listed below are those who are on the published option. Dairy One congratulates all winners and wishes them continued success through 2013-2014. If you would like assistance improving your milk quality, talk to your Dairy One Farm Service Technician or call Dairy One at 800-496-3344.

Keystone Outdoor Expo is for the serious outdoorsman by Jon M. Casey For the outdoorsman who is preparing for their fall and winter sporting activities, the Keystone Outdoor Expo being held at the York

Expo Center, York, PA on Aug. 16-18 is the ideal way to start. Hosted and promoted by Richard Huff, III, avid outdoorsman and co-owner of Keystone Valley Ranch, a

private deer and elk hunting facility in central Pennsylvania, the three day event begins Friday Aug. 16 at noon and runs through 8 p.m. the first day. Saturday’s

activities run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. while Sunday, the Expo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “At the Keystone Outdoor Expo, we are look-

ing to provide the outdoorsman with a complete, high quality, experience that will prepare them for their hunting, camping and fishing activities at a time that is best suited for their schedules,” said Huff during a recent interview. “We are creating a show that will appeal to attendees and vendors alike. We want to offer show goers the best of the outfitters when it comes to the products and services that attendees are seeking.” Huff said with more than 200 exhibitors already signed up for the show, he is looking forward to an event that has something for everyone. “We will have Kate Fiduccia, the co-host of the Woods N’ Water TV Series on hand to share some of her recipes that she features on the wild

game cooking segment of Cooking Wild in Kate’s Kitchen. We are also looking to have her husband Peter Fiduccia, ‘The Deer Doctor,’ on hand as well. Peter is a highly recognized authority on white-tailed deer hunting and is recognized for his ‘Woods N’ Water’ TV Series.” “When we decided to put this show together, we wanted to offer a variety of exhibitors that focus on outfitting the hunters, fishermen and outdoorsmen without bringing in a number of unrelated vendors that distract from the main theme of the show,” said Huff. “If the vendor’s products are items that outdoor people use or need while they are out in the wild, that is the kind of product lines we

In addition to exhibiting, Cabela’s has donated products to be given away at the show.” Huff said by hosting the event at the Toyota Arena at the York Expo Center, the show is a destination for Mid-Atlantic outdoorsmen that is a reasonable driving distance. More importantly, there are plenty of accommodations for those who wish to spend the night if they choose.

With free parking and a low, $10 general admission (children 11 and under are free), campers, hunters and fishermen are able to spend the day with vendors economically, and come away with the gear and services that they need to make their outdoor experiences the very best.

and compares to $18.56 in 2011. In a week of heavy trading, cash cheese saw some ups and downs the first week of June Dairy Month but the blocks reversed four weeks of losses, closing Friday at $1.7475 per pound, up a quarter-cent on the week and 13 1/4-cents above a year ago. Barrel finished at $1.76, up 5 1/4cents on the week and 23 3/4-cents a year ago. Fifty cars of block traded hands on the week and four of barrel. The lagging AMS-surveyed U.S. average block price slipped to $1.8090, down 3.3 cents on the week, and barrel averaged $1.7746, down 0.3 cent. Cheese production continues at a busy pace as extra milk found its way to cheese plants over the Memorial Day weekend, according to USDA's Dairy Market News (DMN). Lower prices continue to increase interest from international buyers, aided by the Cooperative Working Together (CWT) program, and aging programs continue to take advantage of the lower prices to build inventories, according to DMN. CWT accepted eight requests for export assistance this week to sell 2.1million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered

through November, and raised CWT's 2013 cheese exports to 59.2 million pounds, plus 51.7 million pounds of butter, 44,092 pounds of anhydrous milk fat and 218,258 pounds of whole milk powder to 31 countries. Cash butter closed the week at $1.5450, up a half-cent and 12 3/4cents above a year ago. Twenty cars were sold on the week. AMS butter averaged $1.6182, up a penny. Eyes are on the weather to see if summer heat will drive ice cream sales and draw cream away from the churn to the cone. Cream supplies over the Memorial Day Weekend in all regions were very heavy, according to DMN, and kept many churns operating at full schedules. April butter production totaled 169 million pounds, down 6.9 per-

cent from March and 0.3 percent below April 2012, according to USDA's latest Dairy Products report. Nonfat dry milk output, at 161 million pounds, was up 7 percent from March but 15.7 percent below a year ago. American type cheese, at 373 million pounds, was down 3 percent from March but up 2.4 percent from a year ago. Total cheese production

amounted to 928 million pounds, down 2.9 percent from March but 3.2 percent above a year ago. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.6925, up 1 1/4-cents on the week while Extra Grade remained at $1.70. AMS powder averaged $1.6690, up 1.2 cents, and dry whey averaged 58.13 cents per pound, up 0.8 cent.

The Memorial Day holiday proved to be challenging for processors in the Northeast, yet was a busy, uneventful period at most dairy plants in other regions, according to USDA's weekly milk production update. Manufacturing milk supplies were very heavy over the holiday weekend in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic with some plants reporting milk volumes comparable to yearend holidays. Handling problems and delays were more problematic in the Northeast with some plants having

to dump milk. Midwest milk handling and processing went rather well, thanks to increased processing capacity. California milk production is mostly steady with recent weeks. Hotter weather conditions caused a dip in output for a couple of days, but levels did recover. Arizona output was steady, New Mexico production uneven. Hotter weather is impacting milk receipts with lower milkfat and solids content noted. FC Stone's June 4 eDairy Insider Opening Bell reported that the

latest Crop Progress report showed 91percent of the corn is planted in the major producing states, up 5 points on the week but still off the five-year average of 95 percent. Soybean planting, at 57 percent, lags the five-year average of 74 percent. "Market consensus appears to be that corn plantings may be 2 to 2.5 million acres less than expected," according to the Opening Bell, "down from last week's expectations of 5 to 6 million acres."

cial disappearance of dairy products in the first three months of 2013 totaled 48.2 billion pounds, down 0.6 percent from the same period in 2012. Butter was up 5.4 percent; American cheese, up 0.3 percent; other cheese, up 0.1 percent; nonfat dry milk was down 15 percent, and fluid milk products were off 0.9 percent. The Agriculture Department's latest Ag Prices report shows the May index at 152, up 2.0 percent from a month ago and 23 percent above May last year. The May all milk price of $19.80 per cwt. is 30 cents above last month and $3.60 higher than May 2012. The April Milk Income Loss Contract payment (MILC) will be 69.884 cents per cwt. The University of Wisconsin's Dr. Brian Gould estimates that, based on June 4 futures prices, the May MILC payment will be about 70 cents. The May 31 Daily Dairy Report said that, although Midwest farms are challenged with

heavy rains, the fallout from last year's drought is far-reaching and continues to affect farm margins even today as evidenced by the Ag Prices report. Western dairy state milk price over feed continues to improve while Midwestern and Eastern states' gains were modest, according to the DDR. Nationally the milk price over feed for May 2013 at $7.03 per cwt. was higher than last month, up 21 cents versus April. The DDR said that per-

formance was mixed for the four largest dairy producing states. Idaho milk prices have been bolstered by stronger cheese and milk powder prices. Changes in milk powder markets will disproportionately influence Western states' milk prices due to high Class 4a or Class IV utilization. This coupled with mostly steady feed costs led to an improved milk price over feed for Idaho of $7.77 per cwt., $1.03 higher than last month.

Farm organizations react to passage of Senate Farm Bill National Grange releases comment on passage of Senate Farm Bill WASHINGTON, D.C. — On June 11, the National Grange released a statement regarding the 66-27 passage of the Senate’s Farm Bill, saying while hopeful we now wait again on the House for action on the nearly $1 trillion piece of legislation that affects every American directly or indirectly. “While we’re happy that the Senate passed their version of the Farm Bill, we can’t help but feel a slight sense of deja vu. Last June we saw the Senate pass their version of the Farm Bill but the House didn’t even get theirs to the

floor,” National Grange Legislative Director Grace Boatright said. “I’m hopeful that the house will pass their version of the bill this month, but realistically, we are still a long way from getting American agriculture a full five-year Farm Bill,” Boatright said. “We all have to keep working to let our elected representatives know how important the Farm Bill is to producers and consumers.” National Grange President Ed Luttrell said the Farm Bill is an essential piece of the puzzle in stability in

NCBA president comments regarding Senate passage of 2013 Farm Bill WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Senate in a 66 to 27 vote passed the 2013 Farm Bill (S. 954) on June 10. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President Scott George, a dairy and beef producer from Cody, WY, issued the following statement on the passage of the legislation: “NCBA is very pleased with today’s passage of the 2013 Farm Bill by the Senate. We commend both Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Senate Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Thad Cochran (RMS) for their leadership on this very important piece of legislation. Cattlemen and women have been asking Congress to pass a farm bill which not only provides certainty for agricultural producers nationwide, but also incorporates priorities important to the cattle industry —

there is not a livestock title, conservation programs are maintained and the research title is sustained. We are also pleased that disaster assistance programs are included in this legislation which is a positive step toward providing a strong safety net for our producers. “Passage of a 2013 Farm Bill is not only important to farmers and ranchers, but also to Americans nationwide who enjoy an abundant, safe and affordable food supply. We support the Senate’s passage of this legislation and will continue working with the House as they bring their version of the farm bill to the House floor this month. As Congress moves forward with the 2013 Farm Bill I urge family farmers and ranchers to continue their grassroots efforts and remain involved and engaged in this process.”

the market. “Farmers are affected by so many variables, so a Farm Bill is important because it offers stability in the face of natural disasters, market shifts and so much more,” Luttrell said. “Every American enjoys benefits from a Farm Bill, from stable prices at the grocery store to continued research into best practices of farming and nutrition science. We look forward to the House taking action, but understand the two

bills are still far apart and advocacy to find compromise is important.” Specifically, the House and Senate bills show about a $16 million difference in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP includes funding for more than 15 percent of Americans who currently receive what was formerly known as food stamps, along with money for reduced school lunches and other nutrition assistance programs.

ASA welcomes Senate passage of the Farm Bill With a vote of 66 to 27, the United States Senate voted to pass the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013, better known as the 2013 Farm Bill. The focus now shifts to the House of Representatives, where work is reportedly scheduled to begin soon. Passing a comprehensive, five-year farm bill is the top priority for the American Soybean Association (ASA), whose president, Danny Murphy, issued the following statement: “The Senate has again shown admirable dedication to passing a new farm bill that will provide certainty for soybean farmers and our fellow members of the agriculture community,” said Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, MS. “The bill passed this evening represents many of ASA’s priorities and is a critical step toward strengthening the farm safety net, protecting planting flexibility, improving conservation, bolstering exports and feeding our nation’s hungry. “The bill also represents a commit-

ment from farmers to our collective national financial responsibility, cutting billions in spending and streamlining redundant and ineffective federal programs. It is a bill that provides much-needed certainty to farmers facing a mounting force of weather- and market-related unknowns, and we commend Chairwoman Stabenow, Ranking Member Cochran, members of the Senate Agriculture Committee and the entire Senate for its hard work. “We now turn our attention to the House, and call on Representatives to move the bill quickly through the chamber this month and on to conference with the Senate before the August recess. The version of the farm bill passed earlier by the House Agriculture Committee cuts Direct Payments as part of $40 billion in total savings, and streamlines more than 100 federal programs. “We look to both the House and the Senate to work together quickly to formalize this commitment to America’s farmers.”

NCGA congratulates Senate on Farm Bill passage, urges House action WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Corn Growers Association congratulates the Senate on passage of the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act (2013 farm bill). The legislation was agreed to by a vote of 66-27. NCGA now urges the House of Representatives to quickly follow suit. “America’s farmers greatly appreciate the leadership and bipartisan efforts by the Senate to complete their work on the farm bill,” NCGA

President Pam Johnson said. “We also recognize the efforts put forth to address regional concerns to ensure all areas of the country are adequately represented in the final language.” NCGA has worked to advance market-oriented reforms in commodity programs to address significant gaps in the farm safety net. The revenuebased Agriculture Risk Coverage Program, designed to complement pro-

ducers’ individual crop insurance policies, will provide protection against multi-year price and production declines that adjusts with the marketplace. This signature reform, coupled with a strong federal crop insurance program, will result in substantial budget savings for taxpayers and more effective risk management tools for corn growers. “This legislation is long overdue and our work is still not done,” Johnson

Senate approves Farm Bill containing dairy policy reform ARLINGTON, VA — For the second time in a year, the Senate has approved a comprehensive farm bill containing the dairy policy reforms backed by the National Milk Producers Federation. The Senate passed the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 by a vote of 66-27 on June 10. The measure contains the Dairy Security Act backed by NMPF and its farmer members, which creates a more effective safety net for dairy producers. “On this strong bi-partisan vote, the Senate has again shown its determination to put politics aside, and work to implement new and better policies for America, including the country’s dairy farmers,” said Jerry Kozak, President and CEO of NMPF. “NMPF appreciates the determination of the leaders of the

Senate, and in particular, the leaders of the Agriculture Committee, Senators Stabenow and Cochran, for shepherding this historic legislation through the Senate.” The bill is similar to the farm bill approved last June 21 by the Senate, especially where dairy policy is concerned. The Dairy Security Act in the measure establishes a voluntary margin insurance program, allowing farmers to better manage the twin risks of milk price and feed cost volatility. The measure also features a market stabilization program to improve the cost-effectiveness of the program, helping farmers and taxpayers alike. The bill’s dairy title eliminates the MILC, price support, and dairy export incentive programs.

Demonstrating the strong momentum behind the Dairy Security Act there was no effort to significantly alter the dairy title during Senate consideration of the bill, Kozak said. “We are very pleased at the progress made during this vital step in the Farm Bill process, but we also know that much work lies ahead,” he added. “We encourage the House of Representatives to also support its Agriculture Committee-passed bill, and reject any dairy processor-backed amendment to undermine the bill’s effectiveness by removing the market stabilization program. Prompt action in the House is necessary so that farmers won’t spend the last half of this year like they spent 2012: expecting a harvest that never materializes.”

said. “Our focus now turns to the House of Representatives with hopes that they schedule floor time to consider the legislation as soon as possible. We look forward to continuing to partner with agriculture advocates to pass a new common-sense, reform-minded farm bill.”

Peterson statement WASHINGTON, D.C. — On June 10, U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, DMN, made the following statement after the U.S. Senate approved S. 954, the 2013 Farm Bill. “Today’s Senate vote brings us one step closer to having a new, five-year farm bill in place this year. Chairwoman Stabenow and Ranking Member Cochran did an excellent job and I applaud their leadership. “This process has gone on far too long but with the strong bipartisan support in the Senate, I’m optimistic the House will be able to consider our farm bill next week. It’s going to be difficult but if everything stays on track, I believe it’s possible to get a bill to the President before the August recess, finally providing some certainty for our farmers, ranchers and consumers.”


The All Milk price for Wisconsin increased in May to $20.50 per cwt., 60 cents higher than last month. However, the

drought-related rise in alfalfa costs of $25 per ton since April nearly eclipsed the improvement in the milk price,

leading to a May 2013 milk price over feed of $6.67 per cwt. in Wisconsin, up only 14 cents. In May, the top four

milk producing states are enjoying an improvement in milk price over feed performance, a stark contrast to one year ago. Last year, the national All Milk price was $14.51 in May, $5.29 per cwt. lower than this year with comparable feed costs. This resulted in a national May 2012 milk price over feed of only $2.22, $4.81 lower than the numbers reported this month, the DDR said. In politics; the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) praised the Senate's vote Thursday to end debate on the 2013 Farm Bill. The decision to invoke cloture "clears the way for approval of a much-needed reform of the federal dairy program," an NMPF press release stated. The Senate was expected to vote on final passage of the Farm Bill the week of June 10. NMPF stated that "Milk producers need the 2013 Farm Bill enacted as soon as possible" and to "know the details of the federal dairy safety net, " to "make business decisions." Meanwhile; DairyBusinessUpdate (DBU) re-

ported that U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) released a statement this week after a House Judiciary Committee markup of H.R. 1947, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013. Goodlatte, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced an amendment that would ensure regulations imposed under the FARRM Act are subject to promulgation under the Administrative Procedure Act and the Congressional Review Act, which fall under the jurisdiction of the House Judiciary Committee. Goodlatte wants review of rules establishing the Dairy Market Stabilization Program, which is part of the Dairy Security Act, the dairy title of the proposed farm bill. The version of the bill reported by the House Agriculture Committee last month waived this requirement. Goodlatte's amendment passed the House Judiciary Committee by voice vote with bipartisan support. National Milk called the measure "a reasonable compromise to get the re-

form approved," but added that the Goodlatte amendment was "another attempt to sidetrack a dairy policy proposal already approved by the House Ag Committee." DBU reported that the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) has a slightly different take on the measure. IDFA said the Judiciary Committee action will "require USDA to examine the impacts of proposed dairy policy in several areas, including consumer prices, the cost of USDA nutrition programs, competitiveness within the dairy industry and the potential for dairy market growth, prior to adopting interim and final regulations." And, a new campaign is being launched in conjunction with June Dairy Month and dairy's REAL Seal that enables consumers to learn more about the benefits of real, American-made dairy products and foods made with them, using a new Facebook page, blogger outreach, and digital advertising. Details are posted at www.facebook.com/REALSealDairy.

Home,, Family,, Friendss & You Full-fat cheese the secret to a healthy quesadilla by Sara Moulton, Associated Press At heart, a quesadilla is pretty much a Mexican grilled cheese. Take a tortilla, stuff it with something savory, add some cheese, fold it in half and toast it. It’s also pretty delicious. I love any dish that includes melted cheese, and it’s that much better when Mexican ingredients are added to the mix. But as much as I enjoy the standard recipe for this widely loved treat, I was pretty sure I could dream up a lighter version. I quickly discovered that it doesn’t take a ton of cheese to flavor — and glue together — the fillings of a quesadilla. as long as you use full-fat cheese. I tried using 4 ounces of reduced-fat cheese, but I found the flavor to be so weak that my tasters didn’t know there was any cheese in the recipe. A second attempt using 2 ounces of full-fat sharp cheddar was an immediate hit. The rest of the filling is vegetables. I started by quickly cooking bell peppers and onions over medium-high heat until that magic moment when they were golden at the edges but still retained their crunch. I added mushrooms for two reasons — depth of flavor and bulk. Carnivores like to think of mushrooms as steak for vegetarians. Any kind of mushroom would be welcome here, but I favor a mix of cremini and shiitake. Finally, as a big fan of chilies, I had to toss in a jalapeno. But it’s your choice whether to add the seeds and ribs, which make the dish much hotter.

Of course, given that dairy and chilies tend to counter-balance each other, the cheese in this recipe will tamp down some of the heat. A cast-iron skillet is the perfect pan in which to cook this recipe or, if you happen to own one, a Mexican comal, the pan usually used for making tortillas. If you use your iron skillet often and care for it with love, it becomes almost stick-resistant, which means you won’t need much oil to cook the quesadillas. You also can grill the assembled quesadillas over low heat for a few minutes on each side to impart a lovely smokiness. These quesadillas also would work well on a camping trip. Just chop all the vegetables and grate the cheese ahead of time and, since there is no oven for keeping them warm, you can cook them and cut them up to share as they are done. Finally, wherever and however you cook these beauties, don’t forget the avocado, yogurt and cilantro garnish, an important part of the finished product. And if you throw together a quick coleslaw to serve on the side — dressing it with lime juice and a tiny bit of vegetable oil — you can easily stretch this into a full meal.

Mushroom, pepper and onion quesadillas Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 1 firm ripe avocado, diced 1 tablespoon lime juice Kosher salt and ground black pepper 4 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion 1/2 cup chopped red or green bell pepper (or a mix)

1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 1/2 cups assorted sliced mushrooms 1/2 fresh jalapeno, finely chopped (seeds and ribs discarded, if desired) 2 ounces coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese Four 8-inch flour tortillas, preferably whole wheat Nonfat plain Greek yogurt 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro Heat the oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, toss the diced avocado with the lime juice and a bit of salt and pepper. Set aside. In a large, preferably cast-iron skillet over medium-high, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil. Add the onion, bell pepper and a pinch of salt, then saute until golden at the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the skillet along with the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to medium and saute until the liquid the mushrooms give off has evaporated, about 7 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to the bowl with the onions and peppers. Add to it the jalapeno, cheese and a bit of salt and pepper. Mix well. Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel. Coat it with cooking spray. Set 2 of the tortillas flat on the counter. Divide the onion-pepper mixture between them, spreading it evenly over each. Press a second tortilla firmly over each. Heat the skillet over medium. Add one quesadilla and toast until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the second quesadilla, placing it on the baking sheet when toasted. Bake for 5 minutes, or until just heated through. Cut each quesadilla into quarters, then divide between 4 serving plates. Top each serving with avocado, yogurt and cilantro.

This week’s Sudoku solution


Postsaver® USA boots and sleeves offer a unique solution to prevent decayed posts. It’s a non-toxic and revolutionary concept for protecting in-ground wood from the harmful effects of ground contact decay. • Protects in-ground wood from the harmful effects of rot and decay — Four conditions are necessary for the development of wood decay. They include available oxygen, a favorable temperature, adequate moisture and available nutrients. If one or more of these conditions are not present, the wood will not rot. Postsaver’s technology is proven to keep the post dryer and extends the service life of in-ground wood. • Impervious to subterranean termites and soil organisms — Postsaver boots and sleeves provide

an impenetrable barrier that separates the wood (the food source) from the destructive effects of below ground termites. Laboratory proven per AWPA E10 testing methodology (required for AWPA stand a r d i z a t i o n ) . www.awpa.com/regulations/TechRegs_AppendixA.pdf • Protects wood from the harmful effects of rot caused by concrete — Placing concrete around wood actually helps to promote decay because the concrete is semi-permeable. This means that the concrete will continuously absorb water like a sponge, making it constantly available to the surface of the wood. Chemically preserved posts in concrete offer additional concerns: • Treated posts are typically installed at or close to their saturation

point and dimension. Shrinking is expected, creating a gap between the cured concrete and the shrunken post. This gap traps rainwater, exposing the wood to high levels of moisture. When the wood wicks up this available water, and the surface water disappears, an increased surface area of the wet wood is exposed to oxygen. This circumstance creates a perfect environment for bacteria and fungus to thrive. • The alkaline nature of concrete is known to have adverse effects on the effectiveness and longevity of preservative chemicals. Postsaver USA’s protective wrap keep the posts drier, more dimensionally stable, shielded from surface water and oxygen and provides a protective barrier from the alkalini-

ty of concrete. • Protects wood from corrosive soil agents. Corrosive agents found in the soil will deteriorate wood cells over time and affect the performance of preservative treatment chemicals (especially those possessing metals such as copper and chrome). • Complements pressure treated wood. Commercialized treated lumber used for residential construction and fencing is not intended for ground contact applications, and service life expectations are fairly short and inconsistent. Frozen lumber (prior to treatment) and the natural features of wood — such as knots and heartwood — are resistant to preservative chemicals and exposure to rot and decay is expected. Chemically treated

lumber is known to leach preservative chemicals and insecticides into the surrounding soil, reducing the effectiveness of the preservative systems and negatively impacting the environment. Postsaver’s barrier keeps the preservative chemicals more available in the ground contact area of the post and protects the surrounding soil from migrating chemicals. • A must for naturally durable wood. Naturally durable wood species are considered naturally durable only if the post possesses 95 percent heartwood, which is costly and difficult to source. The natural oils found in the heartwood of certain species (such as cedar, locust, walnut, redwood and cypress) offer natural resistance to decay and insect damage. Within this catego-

ry, most of the commercialized lumber used today does not possess sufficient heartwood and service life expectations are considered short term. Postsaver USA offers a sound solution to significantly extend the service life of natural wood offering beauty and safety to outdoor environments. • Reduces chemical retention levels. Postsaver USA’s superior protection allows preservative systems and pressure treaters to lower chemical retention levels, eliminating the need for excess chemicals. This allows consumers to source their wood economically and more friendly to the environment. • Eliminates chemical preservatives in some applications. Postsaver USA is listed as a solution to utilize untreated wood in ground contact applications where the post system is not exposed to weather (such as posts and poles used in post-frame construction). The standards include using leachable chemical systems such as borates. • Postsaver USA’s SmartPostTM is a smart choice for structural posts and poles. Benefits include: a. Eliminate the installation expense and use of concrete forms (such as sonotubes) and metal connections. b. Because a full-length post has no connections or weak points, better structural performance is expected. c. Possess a patented notch designed to resist uplift caused by stresses such as wind. This enhancement offers superior anchoring capabilities and no special hardware or installation methods are required. d. Testing proves that posts protected with Postsaver USA’s boots and sleeves remain dryer so the posts remain stiffer and stronger for better structural performance (dry use design conditions may be considered). • Postsaver USA’s boots and sleeves work well with all types of wood — including round, rectangular, glu-lam and nail-lam dimensions.

Mastitis is generally classified as clinical or subclinical depending on the degree of inflammation in the mammary gland. Bacterial infections are the most common causes of inflammation of the mammary gland. Clinical mastitis is

characterized by visible abnormalities in the milk or the udder. The most obvious abnormalities in the milk are flakes, clots and a watery appearance. Abnormalities associated with the udder are heat, swelling and sensitivity

to touch. The severity of clinical mastitis is described as mild, moderate or severe. Acute clinical mastitis is the severe form of the disease and is characterized by a sudden onset of symptoms and visible abnormalities

such as udder swelling, hardness of the affected quarter, pain, watery milk and reduced milk yield. Cows may also be systemically affected and have fever, dehydration and refuse to eat. The most common way to detect clinical masti-

tis is stripping a few squirts of milk into a strip cup at the beginning of milking to check for abnormalities such as clots and flakes. Visual observation and palpating the udder for signs of inflammation can also help identify

clinical mastitis but should not substitute for stripping. Subclinical mastitis is inflammation of the mammary gland that does not create visible changes in the milk or the udder. Although the milk appears normal, subclinically infected cows will produce less milk, and the quality of the milk will be reduced. In addition, infected cows can be a source of infection to other animals in the herd. Since there are no visible abnormalities in the milk, subclinical mastitis requires special diagnostic tests for detection. Somatic cell count (SCC) is the most common test to detect changes in the milk due to the inflammatory process. The greater the SCC in the milk, the higher the level of inflammation in the tissue. There are several ways of getting SCC data on each cow. Having somatic cell counts run monthly on each cow through the DHIA program is one approach. Conducting cowside SCC monitoring using the California Mastitis Test (CMT) or an electronic testing device is another approach. Some milking systems have the capability to measure electrical conductivity of milk as a way of detecting subclinical mastitis. Routine monitoring and detection of both clinical and subclinical mastitis are key components of a herd health program. Knowing the incidence and prevalence of clinical and subclinical mastitis provides the herd manager with information to change milking management practices and improve facilities/equipment as needed for better control of this important disease.

MARKETS

Center for Beef Excellence News for June 12, 2013 After hitting all time record highs in late May, the beef cutout has been trending lower and, judging from market’s reaction, the expectation is for beef prices to continue to drift to lower levels in June and July as the flurry of Memorial Day features subsides. USDA quoted the choice beef cutout on Thursday afternoon at $203.63/cwt, $6.23/cwt (+3.2 percent) higher than a year ago but down about 3.7 percent from the peak on May 23. The surge in prices in late May was mostly related to specific retail promotions for high quality choice beef cuts. Select beef has not fared as well as choice. The select cutout on Thursday was pegged at $184.84/cwt, just 0.3 percent higher than a year ago. Looking at the contribution of the various primals to the value of the cutout, it is obvious that beef prices continue to be driven by a) middle meats (steaks) and b) Asia export items. Round cuts, on the other end, continue to be particularly weak. The round primal value on Thursday was quoted $154.60/cwt, down 4.2 percent from a year ago. Ribs and loins, on the other hand, are +7.2 percent and +5.8 percent higher than the same period a year ago. Will middle meats continue to carry the cutout? This has been the worry in the market since late April and it remains today.

Live cattle futures are at about the same level today as they were in early May. Futures are pricing live steers for late June at around $120/cwt, which would imply a cutout value below $195/cwt. Could we see wholesale beef prices pull back another 4-5 percent in the next few weeks? It is possible, especially if middle meats pull back as they seasonally do at this time. The rib primal is down about 3 percent in the last three days alone and loins also have been weaker recently. The value of items such as short plates and some chuck items that go to export remains well above year ago levels but these represent relatively small parts of the carcass and the effect remain marginal at best. Packers continue to fret about the weakness for round cuts. While demand for rounds at this time of year is generally weak, prices have performed even worse than one would expect, indicating demand at foodservice and in the retail deli counter for roast beef and similar items is soft. Lower ham and turkey breast prices remain particularly problematic for round cuts, highlighting the price discrepancy between beef and other meat proteins in the deli case. Cattle supplies are higher in June compared to earlier in the year and the increase in the sup-

ply of fed beef also seasonally weighs on beef prices at this time of year. The daily steer/heifer slaughter is currently hovering at about 98-99k head per day, compared to about 90-92k head per day in March and April. Daily steer and heifer slaughter still is expected to run about 3-4 percent below year ago levels in June and July. Steer and heifer weights remain above year ago levels but the rate of growth in cattle carcass weights has been slowing down. USDA pegged steer dressed weights for the week ending May 25 at 846 pounds, 0.8 percent higher than the same week a year ago. In Q1,

steer dressed weights averaged 1.7 percent above the previous year and in Q4 of 2012 steer weights were growing at 2.6 percent rate. Cow slaughter remains a wild card. So far, drought in key production areas and poor pasture conditions have pushed more cows to market. Should weather conditions improve, it could limit the number of beef cows flowing to market and help further reduce the supply of grinding beef available.
