Working dairy farm passed to next generation by Bethany M. Dunbar CANAAN, VT — A landmark working dairy farm here has been sold to a young farm family, and a new wildlife area has been created, protecting six miles of frontage on the Connecticut River and ensuring public access for fishermen, campers and bird watchers. The deal took more than two years to put together. Bill and Ursula Johnson sold 849 acres, of which 583 is being

clearly a wonderful project that it was a “no-brainer.” Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Pat Berry said the project is unusual because it brings together three of Vermont’s top values: working lands, conservation, and public access. “Look around you,” he said. “This is a big deal.” Bob Klein of The Nature Conservancy agreed. “What makes Vermont so special is the integration of those things,” he said. “Every project

Environmental Conservation. Cy and Andrea Nelson bought the 583-acre working farm, with easements in place, for $965,000. The Nelsons will also have a free lease on 50 acres within the state-owned WMA in exchange for allowing public access to the river. Nelson said he was glad to have the opportunity. It was not a simple decision though. “It was a big commitment financially and for our family in general,” he said. Cy is the

kept in farming, with conservation easements. The remaining 266 are being made into a state-owned Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The property and easements cost $1.45-million, according to Tracy Zschau, regional director of the Vermont Land Trust (VLT). It was a complicated deal and one lots of people wanted to celebrate at the Johnson farm on Aug. 3. About 70 people attended, including the heads of several state agencies, plus local legislators — Senator Bobby Starr and Representative Bob Lewis from Derby. Johnson is also a state representative. Secretary Deb Markowitz of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources said the Johnsons’ sense of civic duty in wanting to make the whole thing happen was laudable. “This is just one more example of what it means to be a Vermonter,” she said. Secretary Chuck Ross of the Agency of Agriculture said when he was approached about this idea it was so

is a manifestation of a collection of values. Conservation isn’t something somebody else does.” Zschau said the first step was to buy the conservation easement, which was about $450,000 of the total cost. The first main funding source was the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s Upper Connecticut River Mitigation and Enhancement Fund. Representatives of the fund put up the money for the easement plus the additional $1 million to buy the property, with the understanding that VLT would find others to help share the cost. In the long run, Zschau said, other funding sources agreed to help, and the New Hampshire group ended up paying under $500,000. Funds came in from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service, Pew Charitable Trusts, and the Vermont Department of

son of Doug Nelson, who was also on hand for the celebration. “I’ve worked for him on the family farm since I was a kid,” Cy said. Now he and Andrea have a two-year-old daughter of their own, named Sloan and are expecting again soon. Cy Nelson said the Johnsons helped make the transition very smooth. The Nelsons are employing the same five workers the Johnsons did, which they said has made a big difference. Some of the employees live in housing on the farm. Cy and Andrea Nelson have 215 milking cows in Canaan and 250 in Coventry. Nelson said the river-bottom rock-free land on the Johnson farm is ideal for farming, and the corn is doing extremely well this year. “I think we’re as good as anything,” he said. “The dairy industry is a pretty unique industry. Our profits are always fluctuating.” The Johnsons have retired as farmers, but Bill Johnson still serves the area in the

state House of Representatives. He represents the towns of Brighton, Canaan, East Haven, Lemington, Newark, Norton, and Westmore. Ursula Johnson worked in conservation. Over and over again in the course of the day, officials remarked on what a wonderful job the couple had done keeping the land in great shape. Where many farmers would have drained a lot of the wetlands in order to make more pasture or hay land, the Johnsons kept a lot of it intact, and as a result there is a tremendous abundance and variety of birds and wildlife. During the tour, people saw half a dozen great blue herons, a northern harrier (marsh hawk), and several other species of birds. After the speeches, people were invited to take tours of the farm or two parts of the wildlife management area (WMA). One was north of the main barn, and the other was south into part of Lemington. “There’s not a written plan for this area yet,” said Fritz Gerhardt of Beck Pond LLC.

He is a conservation scientist who led the Lemington tour and pointed out some highlights in the farmland and wetlands. The WMA plans for the whole state will be discussed at a public hearing in Montpelier on Aug. 21. People who have ideas for what should be done with the property will have a chance to give their opinions. Joan Allen of The Nature Conservancy, Zschau and Jane Lazorchak of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department were credited as being the three masterminds behind the complicated project. “This is exemplary by national standards,” said David Govatski, president of Friends of Pondicherry, based in New Hampshire. Mr. Govatski did a bird survey for the land trust that showed 89 species, some of them rare. He said the wetlands are home to hundreds of wood ducks, American bitterns, and purple sandpipers to name a few. Of the species found in the survey, 30 species of special concern to conservationists were noted.

Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowtiz was one of the state officials to congratulate everyone involved in making the Johnson farm conservation project work.

by George Looby, DVM The state of Connecticut is very supportive of farmers markets. Over 100 farmers markets can be found in the state and the farmers who participate reap multiple rewards and advantages. The State Deptartment of Agriculture oversees a program entitled Certified Farmers Markets which affords participating farmers certain advantages over farmers choosing not to participate. As set forth in Connecticut State Statute Sec. 22-6r, benefits for participating include inclusion in the Connecticut Farmers Market Brochure, participation in the official website www.CTGrown.gov, all media opportunities promoting Connecticut Farmers Markets, access to supplemental food programs including the WIC/Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) and the WIC Fruit and Vegetable Check Program (if applicable), use of the farmers kiosk designation (the loss of which may result in more intervention by local health departments), farmer/vendor recruitment and support in dealing with other government agencies and municipalities. One of the advantages of the Certified Program is the ability to participate in the Connecticut Farmers Nutrition Program (FMNOP). This program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture and funded jointly by the State of Connecticut and the USDA Food and Nutrition Service. The program is designed to provide a supplemental source of fresh fruits and vegetables for clients of the Womens,


High quality forage drives intake; intake drives production

Part One Dr. Limin Kung, professor of animal science and dairy nutrition at the University of Delaware, says that because forage quality drives intake, whatever comes in from the field should be preserved so that the investment made in that tonnage isn’t lost. “Forage quality drives intake,” said Kung. “The rumen has a fixed volume, and if it’s stuffed with poor quality forage, the rumen is full. If I want to feed more to the animal, I can’t because the rumen is already full of low-digestibility, high-fiber stuff. The only way to unstuff the rumen is through digestion, but if the silage is poor quality, it doesn’t digest well.” Kung wants producers to understand that high production does not increase feed intake. “If you can get cows to eat more, they’ll produce more milk,” he said, “but not the other way around.” Kung outlined four possible scenarios for forage quality. The first is starting with poor quality forage in the field and doing a bad job putting it into the silo — the obvious result is poor quality feed for the entire year. In the second scenario, with poor quality coming in from the field but an excellent job

Corn silage that is harvested at the optimum time and stored properly will retain the highest quality nutrients.

And because harvest usually producing farms,” he said. “One is cow takes place within a two-week period comfort, the other is forage quality.

‘C’ is carbon, which is part of the fiber, protein, sugars and starch, so that’s where you’re losing dry matter through calories in heat.” 16:10 Kung says that making good corn silage is all about staying away from extremes. “Try to get most of the crop somewhere in the middle, at about 32 to 37 percent dry matter,” he said. “You’re never going to get it all there, but the key is to get as much as possible in that middle range.” That’s best because starch digestibility is ideal at that range.” Corn silage that’s harvested too early is usually too wet. “If you put it up too wet, you have low kernel development so there’s low starch and low energy,” said Kung. “Wet silages ferment a lot, and probably ferment too much.” Kung noted that feeding high amounts of wet silage means reduced intake because of high acid content. Wet silage also results in seepage, which means loss of minerals, proteins, sugar, and energy. If silage is put up too late, at about 42 percent dry matter, the result is too much starch that is less digestible. “I want high starch and high digestibility,” said Kung. Kung reminds farmers that testing is essential — especially in a drought year — because it’s impossible to determine moisture content by looking at the stand. “What happens is that the first wave coming out of the field in a drought year is too wet,” he said. “The water isn’t in the leaves, it’s in the stalk. Unless you have x-ray vision, you can’t see that.” The other important factor in harvesting corn silage is that particle length should be 3/8 to 1/2 inch for unprocessed silage, and 3/4 inch for processed silage. “We want better particle size because the cow needs to chew,” said Kung. “When they chew, they make saliva; saliva buffers the rumen and keeps the cow out of acidosis. If you chop too fine, the fibers aren’t re-chewed and leave the rumen too fast. If you’re bringing in really dry silage, chop it finer and pack it better.” Part two will discuss kernel processing and fermentation.

Ladybugs: Collateral Damage Appearing on the July 11, 2012 Website of the British-based Institute of Science in Society (ISIS) was an article titled “Bt Toxicity Confirmed:

sects that the pesticide is designed to kill. Bt toxins are present in many GM crops including cotton and corn. Variety # 810 of Bt corn is currently approved for cultivation in Europe, although it has been banned by individual nations such as Hungary, France, Austria, Germany, Greece and Luxembourg due to health and environmental concerns... concerns based on earlier peer-reviewed studies. Previous Bt toxicity studies have been slandered by GM proponents, claiming that certain Bt toxins are effective against limited orders of insects, killing only butterflies and moths, such as the European cornborer. However, a peer-reviewed study published by Angela Hilbeck and colleagues at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in 2009 showed increased mortality in ladybirds exposed to the ‘activated’ toxin that had been coated on their food — meal moth eggs; the team had found similar effects in green lacewings previously. In response to

Hilbeck’s original publication, a coordinated effort aimed at discrediting her findings appeared in the journal Transgenic Research. Central to that effort were two highly charged critiques from the Agroscope Institute, which failed to detect any non-target toxicity. They concluded that the results of Hilbeck’s team were ‘false-positives’ due to poor study design. Agroscope, a Swiss federal governmental research organization, is linked to the agrotech giants (European) Syngenta… and its huge American counterpart, based in Missouri. These attacks were triggered by Germany banning #810 corn, a decision based on Hilbeck’s findings, as well as other scientific publications. Dr. Eva wrote that new work from Hilbeck’s team addressed the discrepancies between their own findings and those of their critics. First they conducted a ‘proof-of-concept’ experiment where they tested both their original protocol and Agroscope’s protocol on the target species, the European cornborer.

I’ll hit the story’s high-spots (as usual), but the unedited text can be read on-line at: www.isis.org.uk/Bt_ Toxicity_Confirmed_Flaw ed_Study_Exposed.php According to Dr. Eva, researchers confirm Bt toxicity to non-target beneficial insects. They also show how experiments claiming to refute their results were designed not to find the effect. A new study confirms that the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin in genetically modified (GM) crops kills the larvae of the two-spotted ladybird (Adalia bipunctata). But GM supporters claim that the labybird is not affected by the toxin. (What Americans call ladybugs, the Brits call ladybirds.) The study raises questions regarding the integrity of previous work published by GM proponents, whose experimental protocols were re-tested and shown to lack the scientific discipline required to pick up signs of toxicity, even in target in-

In the Hilbeck team’s original study, the ladybird larvae were exposed continuously for 10 days to a microbially-produced purified version of Bt toxin, or a microbially produced ‘empty’ version lacking the toxin. These larvae were exposed through coating their food — meal moth eggs — with the toxin. The Agroscope protocol on the other hand, exposed the larvae for only 24 hours at a time through a sugar/water droplet with or without the toxin. As the larvae are carnivorous and cannot survive on a sugar diet alone, they were transferred to petri dishes with untreated moth eggs, thus giving them a period to recover from the exposure. Long story short (because this research is

complicated), in Agroscope’s experiment, ladybird larvae were exposed only 24 hours to Bt toxicity. So, the aim of the new study was to understand if the differences in these protocols may have accounted for the opposing results obtained by Hilbeck’s team and by Agroscope. By testing target species that the toxin is designed to kill, any weakness in a brief (24 hour) period to a sugarbased Bt-toxic diet (which they would not consume)... followed by switching the larvae over to a non-toxic diet (just before they starved)... would not assess the Bt-based mortality experienced by ladybirds in the field. As expected, Hilbeck’s team found high levels of mortality following continuous

exposure as expected (just below 100 percent with both types of exposure). The mortality rates dropped by half when animals were exposed to Btsprayed plants for 24 hours only. Exposure to Bt corn for only 24 hours did not even cause mortality rates to rise above unexposed control groups. Let me express Agroscope’s experimental method in human terms: a person smokes cigarettes for one month, but does not develop cancer; that fact can then be crafted into proof that cigarettes do not cause cancer. When Hilbeck and her associates ran the second set of trials,

they subjected ladybird larvae to six days of exposure; they observed that mean mortality rate was 40 percent compared to around 25 percent in unexposed larvae. The greatest difference in mortality between treated and untreated animals peaked at four days, where there was around a 20 percent increase in mortality over untreated animals, after which it began to level off. The new work not only corroborates the team’s previous findings, but also documents Agroscope’s failure to detect toxicity on non-target insects. In reality, it is difficult for researchers to obtain

the transgenes (like GM Bt) made by industry, as there are strict patent laws and resistance to giving permission to conduct independent research on their products. Previous studies have shown that the modified toxin is more toxic than their naturally produced counterparts, with green lacewings suffering from delayed development and reduced survival. Currently, no regulatory body requires testing of modified transgenes, which means that their effects have not been properly assessed in any version. Attacks on scientists who publish data that refute the safety of biotech

A Rugged Flexwing with Features and Benefits for Mowing Contoured Fields. Here’s the heavy duty flexwing cutter with all the features needed for rugged mowing jobs. This tough Bush Hog cutter has a 20-foot cutting width and is rated for minumum 90 pto horsepower tractors. It has a 5-year limited gearbox warranty, and its 10-gauge steel deck construction lets it take on the shocks of heavy mowing. Wings flex from 87° up to 22° down and wide wing skids reduce “dig-in” on sharp turns. Each axle pivot point has a greasable bushing for long life. Come in today and see the other features of the 2720, such as dual wheels on the center section, a “no-disconnect” turnbuckle for ease of wing adjustment and optional walking tandem axles for extremely rough mowing conditions.

ONE OF THE MOST RUGGED ROTARY CUTTERS ON THE MARKET.

The 406 Series from Bush Hog are just about the toughest rotary cutters you can hitch behind a tractor. Offered in a choice of lift or pull models, these 6-foot units take on brush and saplings up to 4-inches thick. Round blade holders, heavy duty gearboxes and slip clutches provide protection when operating in adverse field conditions. 1/4-inch thick steel decks and side bands, along with extra welding at high stress points, assure greater durability. To see a really tough rotary cutter, come in today and look over the Bush Hog 406.

products are under immense pressure from GM proponents, industry and even regulatory bodies. According to Hilbeck, “deliberate counter-studies and confrontational attacks have also been witnessed with other commercial products such as bisphenol A, asbestos, and tobacco”. Her team was never given the opportunity to respond to their critiques. This is not the first time that the researchers have faced such scrutiny; the publications on lacewing lethality drew a similar response from some of the same authors that targeted the ladybird study.

California Dairy Producers Fighting Their State For Their Livelihoods Issued Aug. 17, 2012 Hot weather remains in the spotlight as Class III futures entered the $20 zone this week for the first time in a long time. The cash dairy markets awaited Friday after-

noon’s July Milk Production report, which I will detail next week. Block cheese hit $1.90 per pound but gave some back Friday to close at $1.87, up a penny and a half on the week but still 3 cents below a year ago. Barrel closed at $1.8350, also up 1 1/2-cents on the week and 2 3/4-cents

below a year ago when they rolled almost 22 cents lower. Only two cars of block traded hands this week and 13 of barrel. The AMS-surveyed U.S. average block price inched 0.6 cent higher, to $1.7170. Barrel averaged $1.7132, down 0.6 cent. Cheese inventories are “in a normal range which manufacturers are comfortable with,” according to USDA’s Dairy Market News. Milk supplies are tightening seasonally in much of the country, USDA says, but there is uncertainty over what im-

pact the prolonged drought will have on feed and hay supplies and hence, milk production available for making cheese. Butter was bid 4 1/4cents higher, to $1.7925, 29 1/2-cents below a year ago. Nothing sold in the cash market. AMS butter averaged $1.6601, up 2.9 cents. Churning across the country is challenged by tightening cream supplies. Many butter producers believe cream supplies will remain snug for the next few weeks as school bottling standardizing resumes but as

Class II demand eases further, cream supplies should become more available. USDA says overall volumes of standardized cream may be lighter this year as butterfat levels in milk have been lower for much of the summer. Limited supplies are often causing butter producers to reach into inventories to fulfill butter demand which is steady, according to USDA. Some producers are concerned about upcoming tight milk supplies due to drought, heat, and feed costs and supplies that

will probably short milk for butter production before the impact is felt by cheese plants. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed the week 17 cents higher, at $1.65, and Extra Grade closed at $1.6250, up 18 1/2-cents. AMS powder averaged $1.2467, up 3.2 cents, and dry whey averaged 52.91 cents, up 0.9 cent. The August 10 Daily Dairy Report (DDR) said that “Despite record-large acreage, this year’s corn crop is 13 percent smaller than last year’s, according to USDA’s monthly

Crop from 8 Studies into the toxic effects of the GM Bt toxins now begin to shed light on the wider effects of these poisons against non-target insects. This knowledge is critical to agriculture, with insects like the ladybirds serving an

important biological function due to their predation on crop pests, such as aphids and white flies. In a weird irony, while these synthetic Bt toxins are wreaking death on ladybirds, targeted pests, like armyworms,

Mielke from 9 World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates. USDA projects farmers will abandon 9 million corn acres and harvest 10.8 billion bushels of corn, the smallest crop in six years as pointed out last week. The drought-reduced crop leaves ending stocks at 650 million bushels, only 5.8 percent of annu-

al demand, the smallest stocks-to-use ratio since 1995-96, according to the DDR, which warned: “End users will have to ration demand.” The DDR’s Sarina Sharp points out in the DDR’s Daily Dairy Discussion on its website that end users will be vying for the available corn supply and “while many are call-

ing for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to waive the ethanol mandate, this would have little or no effect on ethanol demand. Gasoline futures are just shy of $3 per gallon, and ethanol is trading around $2.60. Unless that relationship changes, refiners will continue to blend ethanol.” Sharp said ethanol pro-

Reporting on this week’s Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook, the DDR said “Poor margins have encouraged strong culling and declining production per cow. USDA lowered its milk yield per cow to 21,830 pounds in 2013, down from its 22,060 pound forecast in July. USDA also expects the dairy herd to average 9.11 million head in 2013, 35,000 cows lower than its July forecast, down 115,000 head ver-

sus 2012, and the smallest herd since 2005.” 2013 milk production is expected to be 198.9 billion pounds, down 1.4 percent from the July forecast and the DDR reported that, if realized, this would be the first year-over-year decline in milk production since 2009 and the largest annual decline in milk production since 2001. Meanwhile; June fluid milk sales amounted to

ducers are in a better financial position to buy the high priced corn than are livestock producers who have been suffering years of difficult finances, pointing to the large loss of equity among dairy farmers in 2009. “They can’t borrow their way through poor margins,” Sharp said, and beef producers are in a similar situation so she expects large culling ahead and “continued contraction.”

Mielke from 11 4.1 billion pounds according to USDA estimates, down 0.3 percent from June 2011 and 0.8 percent lower after adjusting for calendar composition. Estimated sales of total conventional fluid milk products decreased 0.5 percent from June 2011 and estimated sales of total organic fluid milk products fell 3.9 percent from a year earlier. California’s September Class I milk price is $19.34 per hundredweight (cwt.) for the north and $19.61 for the south. Both are up $1.33 from August but $4.23 below September 2011. The 2012 Class I average now stands at $17.99, down from $20.64 at this time a year ago, and compares to $16.46 in 2010. The southern average is $18.26, down from $20.91 a year ago and compares to $16.74 in 2010. USDA announces the Federal order Class I base August 22. Speaking of California, the Western United Dairymen’s (WUD) recent petition for an emergency hearing on California’s Class 4b milk pricing formula and a six-month, 50 cent per cwt. increase in the minimum price for all classes of milk has drawn responses from dairy producers and processors. Dairy Profit Weekly reports that on

August 6, WUD petitioned the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), asking for an emergency hearing on two proposals. First is emergency price relief due to the current financial pressures on dairy producers, notably due to extremely high feed costs. WUD is requesting a six-month (October 2012 through March 2013) increase of 50 cents per cwt. on the minimum milk prices for all classes of milk. Second they seek changes to the whey value of the 4b pricing formula. WUD is requesting the cap of 75 cents per cwt. to be removed, proposing a scale that mirrors more closely the whey value under the Federal milk marketing order Class III milk pricing formula. Both the Class 4b and Class III milk pricing formulas are used for milk processed into cheese. In a move to address concerns of small cheese makers, WUD proposed a dry whey exemption on the first 100,000 pounds of milk processed daily and would be only on the whey portion of the Class 4b formula. You’ll recall that, following a May 31-June 1 hearing, a CDFA panel recommended no change in the state’s 4b pricing

formula whey factor. However, CDFA secretary Karen Ross gave dairy producers a small concession, increasing the whey factor cap by 10 cents per cwt., effective August 1. She also announced creation of a California Dairy Future Task Force, charged with developing recommendations for structural changes to California’s dairy pricing formulas and other milk marketing regulations. In a letter to Ross, Joe Augusto, president of the California Dairy Campaign (CDC), urged CDFA to schedule the emergency hearing, saying the previous decision failed to address the immediate needs of dairy producers. “The decision that resulted from the 4b hearing this spring failed to restore equity to our dairy pricing system,” Augusto wrote. “California dairy

producers continue to be paid significantly less than dairy producers in surrounding states. The fact that the 4b formula undervalues milk has led to a loss in revenue of more than $200,000 for the average 1,000-head dairy in our state over the last 12 months.” “To restore equity to our dairy pricing system, our dairy producer members believe California should join the Federal milk marketing order. To address the inequity in our state dairy pricing system, we believe it is imperative that CDFA remove the cap on the whey value in the 4b formula as called for in the petition.” “Already this year, more than 65 dairies have closed their doors due to the fact that dairy producer prices do not cover historically high production costs,” he

continued. “In 2009, the worst year many can recall, 100 dairies closed their doors. If closures continue at this rapid pace, 2012 will take an even greater toll on dairy producers if action is not taken by CDFA to restore fairness and equity to our dairy pricing system.” “Dairy producers are unable to pass on record high feed costs that have

resulted from the nationwide drought so it is critical that CDFA take emergency action to raise the price of all classes of milk to prevent more dairies from closing.” Reis Soares, Soares Dairy, Chowchilla, Calif. also wrote in support of the petition, pleading for CDFA to consider WUD’s petition for an emergency

(Family Features) — The refrigerator and freezer are wonderful kitchen tools if you use them to your advantage. Go-to dishes have never been easier, thanks to the classic preservation methods of refrigeration and freezing. With one stop at the grocery store you can have all the ingredients you need to create a variety of wholesome meals in a snap. Know the storage basics. Heavy-duty freezer bags are perfect for keeping sauces, marinades and soups for up to one month, whereas glass containers can provide simple portion control for already assembled dishes. Well-wrapped, double-sealed meals will be less likely to get freezer burn and can be stored for up to two to three months. Make sure to clearly label and date your freezer meals for easy reference. Thaw with care. There are several ways to thaw out your freezer meals, but only a couple of safe ones. You can place smaller containers in the refrigerator in the morning, and then pop them in the oven in the evening. If you are in a hurry, do a quick thaw by immersing the container in cold water or defrosting it on a low setting in the microwave. Go Fifty-Fifty. Serve half to your family now, half later. This Fiesta Chicken, Rice and Bean Casserole made with the classic Mexican flavors of jalapeño, cumin, corn and black beans can be enjoyed more than once. The addition of instant chicken bouillon granules and evaporated milk give it an especially savory and creamy flavor. For more make-ahead recipe ideas, visit www.meals.com.

Mielke from 12 hearing stating; “I am a first-generation dairy producer and have been dairying for 28 years. Dairying in 2009 was about as devastating as I could have ever imagined until 2012. I don’t have to tell you what has happened to our grain/feed costs, as you are fully aware of the nation’s worst drought in decades. In 2009 I borrowed on our farm in order to be able to feed our cattle. I refinanced our farm for more

than what I originally paid for it just to stay in business. I guess you can say I bought our farm twice now. The equity of our farm is gone; the equity in our cattle is gone; so we have nothing left to borrow on.” “I don’t understand how CDFA can allow this much injustice to continue,” Soares added. “The dairy producer pays for the processors’ cost of operating. The dairy producer pays the full cost of pro-

ducing and hauling the milk to the processor. The processor is able to sell the finished product at a profit, yet they don’t have to share with the dairy producer.” “I believe your conclusion in the most recent hearing decision that the industry should seek structural changes in dairy pricing to establish a more stable foundation for the future was judicious and should be followed through,” he said. “Howev-

er, in the meantime, how many more dairies will be lost in California and how many more years will dairy producers have to endure instability before CDFA takes responsibility.” To no surprise, processors disagree. David Ahlem, Vice President, Dairy Procurement and Policy, Hilmar Cheese Company, asked CDFA to deny the petition. “Considering another change to the 4b minimum price only weeks after the announcement of

the May 31/June 1, 2012 hearing outcome will further perpetuate regulatory uncertainty in the state,” he wrote. “This constantly changing business climate will do little to encourage investment in this state at a time when capacity is exiting California and growing in other regions. “In recent days, market prices appear to be rebounding in response to supply concerns,” Ahlem continued. “We should let markets work. Increasing

the minimum price will not increase the real value of milk. These intrusive regulatory adjustments insulate our industry from true market signals and do not create sustainable value. If we are really going to grow the value of milk over time, processors and producers must learn to respond to market signals and develop the skill set necessary to compete in the global marketplace.” Complete details are posted at www.dairyline.com.

Up-and-Coming grower leaders get taste of leadership at its best Growers recently gathered in Greensboro, NC, for the first session of the NCGA Leadership Academy, co-sponsored by Syngenta. Upon completion of the program in January, the participants will join more than 500 colleagues who have graduated from this program in the past 26 years. At the meeting, participants got an up-close look at NCGA from President Garry Niemeyer, who is also a Leadership Academy alumnus. Farmers will take part in media training and public speaking exercises as well as association management skill building. In addition, the class will look at future trends that will impact the industry and a comprehensive economic forecast from futurist Bob Treadway. “As a Leadership Academy graduate, I have a deep appreciation for the confidence and skills attendees develop in such a short time, and of the ability of Syngenta and other presenters to hone in on what is most needed,” Niemeyer said. “As NCGA president, I am excited to see new leaders who want to take on an

active role in the association. When these volunteers come together, you can feel their passion for the industry. It is heartening to know that such strong farmer leaders will carry on our mission well into the future.” This year’s class includes Ben Augustine (WI), Jed Bower (Ohio), Jay Fischer (MO), Tom Haag (MN), Rod Hahn (CO), Jerome Hawkins (IN), Jeff Jarboe (IL), Casey Kelleher (WI), Jason Kontz (SD), Lou Lamoreux (IL), John Linder (Ohio), Ray Allan Mackey (KY), Douglas Noem (SD), James Raben (IL), Mark Scott (MO), Daniel Wesely (NE), and

Roger Zylstra (Iowa). The second phase of the Leadership Academy runs March 18-20 in Washington and will cover public policy, lobbying, parliamentary procedure and visits to Capitol Hill. Additionally, it will offer an intensive media training course new to the program. Adding to the work done in this program, NCGA continues its more advanced leadership training program in September, also co-sponsored by Syngenta. Advanced Leadership Academy provides intensive leadership training to a handful of well-qualified applicants.

Women often seen as faces of agriculture by Cyndie Sirekis Many women who work in a wide range of careers — everything from law and communications to education and sports — find it beneficial to join organizations that focus on professional development and that can help them advance in their chosen field. Women in agriculture are no different. Many are turning to Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Programs for professional development opportunities. “A goal of the Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee is to empower women to use their enthusiasm, dedication and talent to change perceptions about agriculture, family farms and ranches and the roles of women,” explained Terry Gilbert, chair of the committee and a farmer from Kentucky.

The WLC coordinates educational programs such as Food Check-Out Week in addition to offering leadership development programs open to all Farm Bureau women. Women’s Communications Boot Camp, which has been held annually each summer since 2007, is one opportunity Farm Bureau provides for women in agriculture from across the country to improve their skills. All of those selected to participate share the same goal, to become better communicators. Public speaking, media training, effective use of social media and tips for seeking elected office are among the topics covered. An enthusiastic group of 15 women of varied ages involved in all types of farming from around the nation recently participated in

two and a half days of intensive training. “Again this year, a group of strangers come together, bonded through sharing intense training exercises and left a few days later with new contacts — friends — that will last a lifetime,” Gilbert said. “It’s encouraging to hear how Boot Camp graduates plan to use their new skills in their communities.” Clearly, opportunities abound for women involved in agriculture today. Many of those opportunities center around helping people understand where food comes from and how it is grown or produced on family farms and ranches. It seems likely that we’ll be hearing more from women about food and farming down the road. A recently concluded national study of 70

www.countryfolks.com

land-grant universities found that undergraduate women enrolled in agriculture programs outnumber undergraduate men by more than 2,900 students. The Food and Agricultural Education Information System studied trends related to gender among undergraduate students enrolled in 14 agriculture academic areas at land-grant institutions between 2004 and 2011.

FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE American Farm Bureau Federation The increase in undergraduate women studying agriculture is a relatively new trend. As recently as 2004, men outnumbered women by more than 1,400 students. By 2008, the number of undergraduate women and undergraduate men enrolled in agriculture academic areas was about equal. This growth in undergraduate women studying agriculture tracks

closely with an overall increase in women farmers tracked by the Agriculture Department. The department’s most recent Census of Agriculture revealed that the number of women farm operators increased by 19 percent (to 1,008,943) between 2002 and 2007. Cyndie Sirekis is director of news services at the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Farm Bill passage remains critical to dairy industry On Aug. 2, John Wilson, Senior Vice President, Dairy Farmers of America Inc. made the following statement: “Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an extension of disaster programs intended to provide relief

to producers experiencing extreme drought conditions. We appreciate this effort. “Unfortunately the drought is just one of many challenges dairy farmers in the United States face today. Outdated federal dairy policy and

increasing feed costs also need to be addressed. “On behalf of the 15,000 dairy farmer owners of Dairy Farmers of America, we respectfully ask Congress to take swift action to pass a Farm Bill that contains dairy policy provisions outlined in the

Dairy Security Act. The bill pending before the House of Representatives represents significant compromise and fiscal discipline, and addresses critical needs of the dairy industry. “To provide additional relief to dairy producers,

we also encourage the Environmental Protection Agency to grant a waiver of the applicable volume of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for 2012 and 2013. While we believe RFS has helped grow domestic development and use of renew-

able energy, the proposed renewable fuel volume schedule is too aggressive in today’s economic environment and is diverting too much of our domestically produced corn out of the feed supply. The drought has exacerbated the situation. For all dairy farmers, feed is expensive; for many, it is or may soon become unavailable. This pressure on the corn supply will increase feed prices and put further stress on a struggling livestock community. “Many dairy farm families need tangible change to continue their operations. We implore Congress and the administration to act swiftly and bring about much-needed relief for dairy farmers who are again feeling the impacts of a highly volatile market.”


Kids from three counties compete in Lamoille County 4-H Dairy Show JOHNSON, VT — On July 28, 14 youths from Lamoille, Franklin and Washington County 4-H dairy clubs participated in the 4-H Open Dairy Show, held in conjunction with the annual Lamoille County Field Days in Johnson. The show was sponsored by University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H and the Green Mountain Moovers 4-H Club of Morrisville.

François Maheu of Roxton Pond, Quebec, judged the event, which included an open peewee class for kids, ages five to seven, to give them an opportunity to learn what it’s like to show a dairy cow. Sadie Ellner, Morrisville, took top honors in this class. In the morning the 4H’ers participated in fitting and showmanship classes, based on competitor’s age, where they

were evaluated on their poise and how well they handled and presented their animal. After lunch, which was donated by local businesses, they competed in conformation classes, arranged by breed and age of the animal, where the animals were judged on physical structure, condition and appearance. Ashley Woods, Enosburg Falls, was named Senior Fitting and Show

Champion. Reserve Senior Fitting and Show Champion was Shelby Biasini, Morrisville. Her sister, Adele Biasini, was the Junior Fitting and Show Champion with Hattie Moriarty of Stowe earning Reserve Fitting and Show Champion. Novice Fitting and Show Champion was Callie Walker, Stowe. Top finishers in fitting and showmanship classes, in order of place-

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack announces meat purchase to assist livestock producers impacted by drought; bolster federal nutrition programs As part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to do everything it can to help farmers, ranchers, small businesses, and communities being impacted by the nation’s persistent drought, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently announced USDA’s intent to purchase up to $170 million of pork, lamb, chicken, and catfish for federal food nutrition assistance programs, including food banks. The purchase will help relieve pressure on American livestock producers during the drought, while helping to bring the nation’s meat supply in line with demand while providing high quality, nutritious food to recipients of USDA’s nutrition programs. “President Obama and I will continue to take swift action to get help to America’s farmers and ranchers through this difficult time,” said Vilsack. “These purchases will assist pork, cat-

fish, chicken and lamb producers who are currently struggling due to challenging market conditions and the high cost of feed resulting from the widespread drought. The purchases will help mitigate further downward prices, stabilize market conditions, and provide high quality, nutritious food to recipients of USDA’s nutrition programs.” USDA announced its intention to purchase up to $100 million of pork products, up to $10 million of catfish products, up to $50 million in chicken products, and up to $10 million of lamb products for federal food nutrition assistance programs, including food banks. Through the Emergency Surplus Removal Program, USDA can use Section 32 funds to purchase meat and poultry products to assist farmers and ranchers who have been affected by natural disasters. The pork, lamb and catfish purchases are based

on analyses of current market conditions. A major factor affecting livestock producers is the value of feed, which is currently running high because of the drought. USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) purchases a variety of high-quality food products each year to support the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Summer Food Service Program, the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, the Commodity Supplemental Food Program and the Emergency Food Assistance Program. USDA also makes emergency food purchases for distribution to victims of natural disasters. Government food experts work to ensure that all purchased food is healthful and nutritious. Food items are required to be low in fat, sugar and sodium. The commodities must meet specified requirements and be certified to ensure quality.

USDA’s chief intramural scientific research agency. Since 1999, Carta has determined the identities of seven species of nematode isolated from the bodies of Formosan termites by Ashok Raina, a retired entomologist formerly with the ARS Southern Regional Research Center in New Orleans, LA. Other specimens Carta has identified were collected from dead or sick termites native to Uzbekistan. Further details appear in the International Journal of Nematology. Of particular interest to Carta and colleagues are bacteria that have a symbiotic association with the nematodes. In one

case, a Poikilolaimus nematode species and bacterial “accomplice” were isolated from the heads of Formosan termites, and it’s likely the microbe had sickened the insects in the field. According to Carta, the bacterial association raises an interesting prospect: using nematodes as vectors of insect pathogens rather than as primary biocontrol agents — the traditional approach. In another case that’s

still under investigation, Carta implicated a Panagrellus nematode species in the death of pet tarantulas. She suspects an insect and yeast may also be involved and is intrigued by the possibility because it would reveal a new ecological association that could yield novel approaches to pest control.

loans, and has worked with crop insurance companies to provide more flexibility to farmers. USDA has also announced the following: • Authorized $16 million in existing funds from its Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) and Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to target states experiencing exceptional and extreme drought. • Authorized the transfer of $14 million in unobligated program funds into the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) to help farmers and

ranchers rehabilitate farmland damaged by natural disasters and for carrying out emergency water conservation measures in periods of severe drought. • Authorized haying and grazing of Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) easement areas in drought-affected areas where haying and grazing is consistent with conservation of wildlife habitat and wetlands. • Lowered the reduction in the annual rental payment to producers on CRP acres used for emergency haying or grazing from 25 percent

to 10 percent in 2012. • Simplified the Secretarial disaster designation process and reduced the time it takes to designate counties affected by disasters by 40 percent. During the 2012 crop year, USDA has designated 1,628 unduplicated counties across 33 states as disaster areas — 1,496 due to drought — making all qualified farm operators in the areas eligible for low-interest emergency loans. Visit www.usda.gov /drought for the latest information regarding USDA’s drought response and assistance.

Agriculture from 32 Obama also stressed the need for the entire Administration to continue to look at further steps it can take to ease the pain of this historic drought. Within the last month, USDA has opened the Conservation Reserve Program to emergency haying and grazing, has lowered the borrower interest rate for emergency

them. Other nematodes that were identified invaded tarantula brains. The Formosan termite, a nonnative species from Asia, feeds on cellulose from the heartwood of trees, the wood support beams of buildings, and other sources. It causes an estimated $1 billion annually in U.S. damages, repairs and control costs. Biologically based control of the pest isn’t a new concept, but the nematode species examined thus far do not kill the termites efficiently, according to Lynn Carta, a plant pathologist with the Nematology Laboratory, operated in Beltsville, MD, by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS),
