just two blocks away; CSA members come to the farm to pick up their shares, so none of the farm partners need or own cars. Bikes with trailers are used to

the fence and chat with their neighborhood far mers. The chickens are very social; they love attention (and snacks) from visitors.

Brown-Lavoie have been friends since early childhood. These recent college grads didn’t seek a desk job but started farming on an abandoned lot just minutes from busy downtown Providence, RI. Since 2011, Sidewalk Ends Farm partners with Front Step Farm in a collaboration called Backyard Farms Urban CSA to supply a 20-member CSA. Each farm grows complementary produce on a formerly abandoned city lot. Both also sell produce through the Little City Growers Coop. CSA shares are comparable to half shares from other farms; this fits city dwellers’ needs and their small kitchens, refrigerators and families. Division of Labor The three partners bring dif ferent strengths and skills to the business. Fay Strongin focuses on Far mers Markets, Laura Brown-Lavoie on the CSA and Tess Brown-Lavoie on restaurant sales. Benefits of an Urban Setting The Farmers Market is

deliver produce to nearby restaurants and collect food waste from far mers markets and other sites. Making the best of urban closeness, these far mers encourage neighbors to add to the farm’s compost pile. This is a great way to stay connected and to get neighbors onto the far m regularly. Everyone is happy to reduce their trash hauling needs and to see their kitchen scraps recycled into next year’s salads. “We have a network of fertility,” said Tess when she described a recent bike trip where a driver pulled over and carefully dropped a banana peel into Tess’s bike cart of food waste. No one can say it is too quiet or boring at Sidewalk Ends Farm. Regular driveby and open window “concerts” keep things lively. The farm chickens were named for the far mers’ favorite musicians, radio hosts and writers: Aretha, Berry, Goodman & Gonzales and Mary Wollstonecraft. Sidewalk Ends Farm has brought back 1950s-style neighborhood closeness. People routinely lean over

City Farming Concerns Knowing there could be soil risks, the three partners conducted thorough soil tests before starting their operations in 2011. The front of their chosen lot had building debris and high levels of heavy metals including lead. To mitigate this, they picked up and moved all the soils from the back of the property to cap or cover the contaminated soils in the front. This part of the property does not grow food with deep roots, but rather houses a chicken pen, raised herb beds with fresh soils and compost, the Portable Wash Station, CSA pickup station and a gathering area or fire circle. All soil surfaces are carefully covered in fresh woodchips the ships minimize any potential leadtainted dust, keep neighborhood and visiting children safe. Irrigation and wash water is provided by neighbors in return for a CSA share and a loaf of fresh bread each week. Bio-Intensive Farming and Compost The back section of the

property has intensivelyplanted vegetable rows. Every inch needs to provide two to three crops per year. T ight, staggered rows help increase outputs in small spaces. When one crop is harvested, the crop residue is quickly moved to the compost piles. 1-2 inches of new compost is added for fertility, and new seeds or transplants are installed within a day or two. New compost was brought in during the first fall from Smithfield Peat. Additional material was added all winter long (leaves, cof fee grounds, etc) and blended with a broad fork in the spring before the first seeds and transplants went in. Fay is very enthusiastic about her farm-made compost. She said, “Compost is key, because the only time this land is fallow is when it is frozen!” Land Security While Sidewalk Ends Farm has a verbal agreement with the landowner, they are seeking a more per manent, long-ter m lease. A lot of effort has gone into making this site viable and safe to farm. Should the farmers have to move, improved soils would be left behind. In case a move is needed, some herbs and flowers grow in portable, repurposed containers like milk crates and 5-gallon pails. Eggplants, peppers grow in olive drums. At a recent Rhode Island

School of Design Competition called Far m Hack, a Portable Wash Station was created with inexpensive of f-the-shelf components. The 5-gallon pails (sinks) can be covered to make a worktable for sorting and packaging CSA shares. The upper shelf supports a tarp of fering shade for the produce and for the farm staff. Young Farmer Nights Throughout the summer of 2012, young and beginning farmers met on alternate Tuesday evenings. A variety of local farms hosted Young Far mer Nights and shared their experiences operating small, sustainable far ms. Inter ns and far mers established personal networks of peers and mentors over potluck suppers, bonfires and singalongs. 2012 hosts included Rosasharn Farm, Pat’s Pastured, Scratch Far m, Sidewalk Ends Far m, Medway Community Farm and more.

Smart Marketing includes services & relationships not just products terms of trade, transaction protocols, etc. How do your customers understand the consumers that buy your products? What infor mation about consumers can they share with you, or you with them, to assist both of you in better serving them? What makes your product superior? What differentiates your product from the rest of the pack? What will make your product more attractive to your customers or consumers? What will your product bring to the assortment of products your customer markets? What information can you provide along with your product (nutritional values, recipes, portion sizes, variety, etc.) to increase sales? Where will your product have to end up to effectively serve your customers or consumers? How will your product hold up in transit? Will your product arrive in a package ready for store display or use in the kitchen? Are there any ways to make life easier for

those who buy your products in regards to scheduling or delivery? Can you better coordinate shipping with other firms shipping similar products in your area? When does your product need to arrive? T ime is of the essence for all of us. How can you cut your customer’s time spent receiving or handling your product? Are there ways to minimize the time your consumer (convenient parking, check-out) or customer (processing invoices or payment) does business with you? Just-in-time delivery and automated inventory replenishment are becoming standard business practices in both the retail and food service industries. Why should your customer do business with you in regards to the services you offer and the value you bring to the business relationship? Why should you be considered a “preferred” supplier by your customer? Why should your ability to

attract consumers to your product add value to your customers business? How will you better understand what services and relationships will be needed to insure the effective marketing of your products? In a rapidly changing marketplace, those services and relationships are changing. How will your services increase the productivity and profitability of your customers? In summary, smart marketers not only deliver high quality products that are relevant to consumers, but must also provide valuable services to build effective relationships with customers. Hopefully, answering some of these questions might shed some light on how to improve your marketing capacity. In the haste to produce the hard product itself, don’t forget the needed services and relationships that will keep your product on the shelf, on the plate, or in the hands of consumers.

USDA seeks applications for grants to help agricultural producers bring increased value to their products

Lilah, a member of the Bob-O-Link 4-H club of North Haverhill, is diligently working on her quilt at this years’ 5th annual Quilt Week. Bob-O-Link project leaders and volunteers offer this week to their club members who have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in sewing projects. This year there were a total of 9 participants (7 girls, 2 boys). Make plans now to view these quilts and others, done by our Grafton County 4-H members, at our Spring Textile Event in April, 2013.

From the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) most recent funding announcement: USDA Rural Development is allocating up to $14 million in grants available for projects that help farmers produce bio-based products from agricultural commodities. The Value-Added Producer Grants program is designed to help agricultural producers enter into value-added activities. These grants can be used to assist in the funding of an anaerobic digester if it is part of a project that adds value to an agricultural product. For example, if digested manure solids are going to be made into a commercial fertilizer product or if the methane generated is used to

power the value-added process (milk processing, cheese making). Awards may be made for either economic planning or working capital activities related to the processing and/or marketing of value-added agricultural products. The maximum grant amount for a planning grant is $100,000 and the maximum grant amount for a working capital grant is $300,000. USDA requires that every dollar in grant funds be matched, either in the form of cash or eligible in-kind contributions. The deadline to apply for funding is Oct. 15. Questions should be directed to your USDA Rural Development State Office.

by Brian M. Henehan, Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, Cornell University In agriculture, we have a tendency in marketing to focus most of our attention on the hard products we produce and bring to market — fruits, vegetables, meat, grains, milk, or cheese. T oday’s markets demand more attention to the services and relationships associated with marketing the actual product itself. The smart marketer is one who not only produces a high quality product, but also delivers needed services and builds effective relationships with customers. A useful way to examine these questions of services and relationships is to begin with the old journal-

istic outline of — who, what, where, when, why, and how. We also need to understand the distinction between a customer and the consumer. Our customers may actually be consumers if we are direct marketers. But usually a relationship with some type of intermediary customer is required to get the farm product to the enduser, the consumer. Typical intermediary customers in the food system can include: wholesalers, retail supermarket buyers, food service buyers, brokers, or processors. Who are you doing business with? If you are a direct marketer, know your consumer. Who are they in regards to: age, income, residence, family size, gender, ethnic group, etc.? How is your consumer base changing? What services will enhance your relationship with your consumers? If you are working with other types of customers, lear n about their operations: sales, distribution,

Drought lasted for decades. Prehistoric Mayans abandoned advanced cities in Mexico because of drought from an El Nino that lasted for decades—20, 30, 40 years….” One of the reasons why we may have not seen dust storms in the U.S. during present drought conditions, as in the 30’s, is that one of Roosevelt’s stimulus programs was to have his newly for med Civilian Conservation Corps plant millions of trees to act as wind breaks and to hold the soil, as well as create jobs.

With a cold winter approaching in the U.S., there may be early frosts which drastically affect soybean yields because crops may not have reached maturity. With El Nino, a poor anchovy catch results in increased s o y b e a n p r i c e s because the largest market for anchovies is fish meal. When anchovies are in short supply, grain companies substitute soybeans in animal

feed, driving up soybean prices which benefits growers. What can farmers do? Far mers can plant trees for windbreaks to hold the soil, practice strip farming for soil erosion control and water percolation, practice no-till planting, mulching, and use more efficient irrigation methods. The Five Acre Far m in Northfield, MA (which presently has a lot more land under cultivation than five acres) uses trickle irrigation rather than overhead irrigation. They store perennials in “cold houses” to keep them dormant to conserve water. In their fields, they use Typar, a porous black plastic fabric, that allows water to percolate through and helps retain water in the soil while keeping out weeds. John Savage of Deerfield, MA, also has land in Northfield, Gill, Deer field and elsewhere in a Partnership with Patterson Farms. Savage says they have 400 acres planted to chip potatoes, 75 acres of hot peppers, and 150 acres of display pumpkins. “The drought has hurt us,” Savage said, except where we irrigated, like in Gill and the other side of the [Connecticut] River in Northfield. In Gill, we have about 20 acres of hot peppers and 60 acres of pumpkins, and 110 acres of chip potatoes in Northfield. We irrigated about six times.” Easter n Washington far mers typically have an annual precipitation of just eight and a half inches. Farmers there use techniques such as summer fallow rotation. One crop is grown on two seasons’ precipitation. The far mers then leave stubble and crop residue to trap snow. They also prevent runoff by terracing their fields, or by contour plowing. More far mers are tur ning to GMO drought resistant seed. Drought resistant genetically altered grains may offer a partial solution to alleviate shortages. Dwarf plants are also being developed that need less moisture but yield as much as their tall cousins. Farmers can insure their crops with federally subsidized insurance programs. In the final analysis, Gildea admits that no one can predict the future with absolute certainty. Floods have sometimes occurred following a drought, as happened recently, all in the wrong places, but Gildea's forecasts have been accurate enough in the past to warrant paying heed to his words of coming drought conditions.

by Joe Parzych No one has to tell farmers that drought conditions exist. Almost 80 percent of agricultural land is experiencing drought, making it the most extensive drought since the 1950s, according to the USDA. The Mississippi River is being dredged because it is too low for barge travel. The increased cost of shipping commodities to seaports by rail is sending grain prices upward. The drought is wide spread over much of the world. Russia had a shortfall in their wheat harvest, again. Australia is also having a rain deficit. What is the cause of the drought and when will it end? Climatologist James Gildea of Ber nardston, MA predicted this past year’s warm dry winter with drought in the Midwest. He saw indications of the coming drought in November 2011 after earlier noting that a war ming of the Pacific began in February of 2011 heralding El Nino. In a meeting with an agricultural committee in Ber nardston, MA, this spring, Gildea predicted a dry year in the Midwest with very wet conditions in the Southwest, heavy spring rains in the Northeast with dry weather to follow. His predictions were right on. “There are many variables,” Gildea said, “but the temperature of the North Atlantic Ocean is a good indicator of long term weather in the U.S. A cold Atlantic Ocean results in a blocking ridge of high pressure which resulted in England and Ireland being covered with snow last winter. A warming of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Peru indicates a beginning of El Nino resulting in drought, among other things.” Weather has a direct effect on economic conditions. World grain prices are on the rise because of poor grain growing conditions in many countries. U.S. cor n and soybean prices have doubled from last year. And then there’s 10 percent corn based ethanol in every gallon of gasoline mandated in many states. With drought in the Midwest ef fecting harvests of cor n, soy beans and wheat prices will continue to rise, which is good news for farmers who are able to produce a decent crop. The U.S. is the world’s largest exporter of these grains, exporting upwards of 70 percent of the total imported by other countries. That figure may go higher with continuing drought in other countries. When will it all end? “There’s no predicting the end of it,” Gildea said. “It may intensify and last up to five years, or longer. El Nino has

Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant (Contact: renrock46@hotmail.com)

A major benefit of molasses is that it can improve the palatability of feeds that don’t really taste that great. Molasses won’t make an imperfect feed into a good one, but it can make it end up in the cow’s digestive system more consistently. With organic corn priced at about 25 cents per pound, and conventional corn priced at about 15 cents per pound, these figures compare to molasses prices: 45 cents per pound for organic, and 15 cents for conventional (both approximate). I tell folks that organic molasses does not provide a cheap megacalorie; thus the benefit of improved forage intake is pretty important. For conventional dairymen, the substitution, dollars — and cents — wise is more

Sweetening the pot This morning, bright and early, Uri telephoned me with a feeding management question. He is a Central New York organic dairy farmer who raises no corn silage and purchases all of his grains, which have been largely shell-corn based; thus he makes a lot of balage. But with the high cost, and limited availability, of organic shell corn, his grain dealer has been working more small grains into the grist which Uri feeds his cows. He is afraid that this change will reduce net energy intake for his cows, resulting in reduced milk production. He wanted to know if molasses can be economically introduced into his dairy ration, so as to keep his cows’ dietary energy on an even keel.

even. The other variable entering this equation is the farm-gate price of milk: organic runs about 28 cents per pound, while conventional milk brings about a dime less. Most organic dairymen, with whom I have contact, say that if they weren’t already organic, the cost-price squeeze they’re in now would have scared them away from becoming organic. Although I’m more used to balancing the energy part of a dairy cow’s diet with megacalories, more recent nutritional research has examined the usefulness of non-fibrous carbohydrates as an equally valuable parameter (if you want to use scientist jargon). Clearly milk production per cow is the major factor determining dairy farm sustainability and profitability. According to many dairy scientists, the inclusion of non-fibrous carbohydrates (NFC) in the range of 35 to 42 percent of dietary dry matter is seen as a

NY Angus represented at Supreme Reception Recently, the NY Angus Association sponsored the reception after the Supreme Champion Beef Animal Show of New York State. Held at the NYS Fair in Syracuse, this reception was a celebration for all participants who came to the Supreme

Show, after winning at their county fairs. “With more than 39 animals in the show, and over 175 people at the reception, the day was a real success,” said Mike Shanahan, President of the NY Angus Association. A great congratulations

goes to Kirby Dygert of Elma, NY for winning the show, & to Sam Birdsall, Homer, NY on Reserve Champion, as well as our Angus Juniors involved — Jayne Bannister and Lizzie Luckman. NYAA also wishes to thank the

Beef


Crop from 7 tergent fiber (NDF) intake protein to 100 percent. Then you combine that feed’s NDF percent, plus its calcium percent, plus its fat percent, plus its ash percent. Take the sum of those four variables and subtract that value from the shorter (earlier) sum, and there you have NFC. [I’m sure this abbreviation is starting to make you think about football (NFL) more than feeding cows.] Here are some typical NFC values for feed that dairymen get to work with: shell corn at 75 percent, ear corn at 64 percent, alfalfa at 25 percent, grasses at 15 percent, and corn silage at 35 percent. Molasses value falls between the two corn figures, and most

small grains are a little closer to the ear corn value. One key element for many organic dairymen is their abandonment of corn silage as a cropping enterprise. I think what happened in many cases is they gave up growing corn because they would have to buy a new row chopper, and then decided to walk away from that cash-flow challenge. (The absence of corn... with all its usual chemical inputs... may have enabled them to qualify for organic certification quite a bit sooner.) I had Uri sample his total mixed ration, which included chopped balage and his purchased grains, as well as minerals and salt. His NFC value for his TMR was

popular way to increase energy density and thus milk production. Most recently, this recommendation is based on research conducted and tallied by Jerry H. Cherney, PhD., Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, and Debbie J.R. Cherney, PhD., Department of Animal Science at Cornell University. One question that readers undoubtedly want to know (but were afraid to ask) is how is NFC calculated? Well, according to R. D. Shaver, Professor and Extension Dairy Nutritionist, University of WisconsinMadison, here’s how we calculate non-fibrous carbohydrate: for a given feed, you start by adding the percent of neutral de-

just over 25 percent. I think that value for a mixed feed may be a little skewed, but I’m sure that the actual figure would still be below the minimum of 35 percent recommended by Cherneys. Addition of molasses would help drag the average value toward that goal, but we’ll be relying on increased total consumption of TMR dry matter, so as to meet the cows’ energy needs, whatever parameter we decide on. In the forage NFC arena today, I stumbled into some good news: the research station in Valatie, NY, has been demonstrating a new variety of brown-mid-rib Sudan grass. I was very impressed. The folks doing

the research at Valatie (and other experiment stations) firmly believe that the digestible energy of this new crop, as related to dairy nutrition, places it on a par with good quality corn silage. The brown-midrib trait in Sudan grass, sorghum, their hybrids,

Benchmark Milk Price Jumps $1.05 Issued Aug. 31, 2012 Farm milk prices moved higher for the

$17.73 per hundredweight (cwt.) up $1.05 from July but still $3.94 below August 2011, and equates to about $1.52 per gallon. That put the 2012 Class III average at $16.23, down from $18.18 at this time a year ago, and compares to $13.80 in 2010 and $10.29 in 2009. Looking ahead; the September contract was

$1.82 per pound, down 3 1/4-cents on the week but 3 cents above a year ago. Barrel closed at $1.7775, down 2 1/2cents on the week and 1 3/4-cents above a year ago. Thirteen carloads of block traded hands on the week and 24 of barrel. The AMS-surveyed, U.S. average block price hit $1.8121, up 5.8 cents on the week, while the barrels averaged $1.8320, up a nickel. Cheese production is mostly steady to marginally below year ago levels according to USDA’s Dairy Market News (DMN). Wholesale cheese sales have been good with mozzarella increasing as schools begin to come back in session. Export sales continue to be aided by the Cooperatives Working Together program (CWT) which accepted 14 requests for export assistance this week to sell 4.58 million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the South Pacific.

Mielke from 11 The product will be delivered through February and raised CWT’s 2012 cheese exports to 78.3 million pounds plus 56.4 million of butter and anhydrous milk fat (adjusted for cancellations), to 33 countries. Stewart Peterson’s Matt Mattke pointed out in Tuesday’s DairyLine that the U.S. Cheddar price is about 20 cents higher than the international price so that may be stalling the U.S. market. Milk and cheese futures, as of Tuesday, were priced in the $1.90’s, he said. “The cash market is having a tough time getting to $1.90.” He added that August was a good month for Class III milk prices, up 80 cents to $1.00 from July but stalled recently with fourth quarter prices getting up to $20.25 to $20.50. October, November, and December milk of this year is currently trading at about 12 cent premiums over cash cheese, according to Mattke, so “It’s going to be hard to see where that next leg of upside is going to come unless the cash market starts to pick up momentum or we see it in the whey market, which has been extremely quiet recently.” Meanwhile, as if we don’t have enough issues to be concerned about, farmers are on high alert for the naturally occurring toxin in corn due to the draught. Trace amounts have been reportedly

showing up and could push prices even higher of the reduced supply of untainted crop. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship will require aflatoxin screening and testing of milk received in Iowa, beginning August 31 and continuing indefinitely. Cash butter closed the week at $1.84, up 4cents but still 16 1/2cents below a year ago when it fell almost 9 cents and began a decent that shaved 33 cents off the price before rebounding in early October. Six cars of butter traded hands this week and the AMS butter price averaged $1.7576, up 4.2 cents. Churning activities across the country are mixed depending on

Mielke from 12 cream availability and price, according to USDA. Students are returning to classrooms, thus school milk bottling schedules are resuming. Standardized cream volumes from increasing bottling schedules are becoming available for cream needs. Class II cream demand remains steady, although typically Class II needs will ease, especially for ice cream, once the Labor Day holiday has passed. Churning is often not keeping pace with de-

mand, thus inventoried stock is being used. Butter producers that are taking advantage of additional cream offerings and generating butter beyond current needs are clearing the extra production to inventory and “holding those stocks with confidence,” says USDA. Retail orders are often outpacing food service needs as many food service buyers are cutting back as the summer vacation season winds down. Food service buy-

ers, especially in resort and vacation areas, indicate that traffic flow through their operations is slowing, but will hopefully remain fairly stable at least through the Labor Day holiday weekend. DMN warns that milk supplies across the U.S. are short of expected levels due to the recent hot weather and higher feed costs. California production has leveled off, but remains short of full processing needs. Midwest milk volumes have increased with cooler tem-

peratures. Eastern supplies are still tight. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.70, up 3 1/2-cents on the week, and Extra Grade held all week at $16250. AMS powder averaged $1.2955, up 3.8 cents, and dry whey inched 0.8 cent higher, to 54.76 cents per pound. Getting back to exports briefly, Dairy Profit Weekly (DPW) reports that, compared to May’s outlook, USDA raised its quarterly forecast for fiscal year 2012 (FY ‘12)

ing the first half of 2012, compared with the comparable period in 2011, plus an additional 580.3 million pounds of milk were available to manufacturers as a result of the lower fluid milk sales. In total, the additional 3.73 billion pounds of milk contributed to yearover-year production gains of 51.8 million pounds of butter, 185 million pounds of nonfat dry milk and skim milk powder, 115 million pounds of cheese, and 82.6 million pounds of yogurt. She points out a few more encouraging details in her column and agrees in the Daily Dairy Discussion audio on the DDR website that the data underscores the importance of fluid milk advertising and promotion and the export market. By the way, the August 30 DDR reports that dairy producers culled 61,000 cows in the week ending August 18, an increase of 6,800 head from the same week a year ago. The slaughter pace year to date is 5.1 percent ahead of 2011, according to the DDR, and since July, U.S. dairy producers have culled 11.7 percent more cows than they did in the same period a year ago Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, and for U.S. dairy farmers, the change of seasons probably can’t come soon enough, according to Dairy Profit Weekly’s Dave Natzke in his Friday DairyLine report. “Even Congress has to come in from recess in September,” he said, “And here in north central Wisconsin, we actually have some trees starting to turn color.” He reported that USDA’s monthly “Milk Cost of Production” report showed the nation’s dairy farmers likely paid more in July operating costs than at any time in history, with feed prices leading the way. The estimates put total costs at more than $27 per cwt., up $2 from June and $1.75 more than previous record highs in the summer of 2008. “Hopefully, the change in season will bring better news,” Natzke said. “Schools will be back in

dairy exports by $300 million in August. At $5 billion, FY ‘12 dairy exports would easily surpass FY 2011’s record high of $4.5 billion. USDA also issued its first forecast for FY ‘13 dairy exports, at $4.8 billion. High feed costs are expected to reduce producer margins, leading to lower milk output and reduced dairy product supplies. That will result in a reduction of export volumes, leading to the $200 million decline from FY ‘12, according to DPW. The FY ‘12 U.S. dairy import forecast was raised $100 million, to $3 billion, due to higher values and volumes. The forecast for FY ‘12 cheese imports was reduced to $1billion. It its first forecast for FY ‘13 imports, USDA forecast slight increases for cheese and total dairy products, at $1.1 billion and $3.1 billion, respectively. Butter, casein and miscellaneous milk products will lead import demand. Despite a forecast for a modest appreciation in 2012 and 2013, the dollar will be relatively weak. That, and low interest rates, provide continued inexpensive credit for financing trade. Higher expected world growth, lower energy prices and more available credit make the outlook for U.S. agricultural trade promising in 2013. Two weeks ago I detailed the latest data on fluid milk sales which continue to fall however the Daily Dairy Report’s Mary Ledman sees a silver lining in the dark cloud in her August 24 edition. She pointed out that June’s 0.3 percent decline in fluid sales from a year ago “pales compared to declines of more than 3 percent in December 2011 as well as February and March 2012. On the down side however, U.S. milk production through June 2012 totaled 119.1 billion pounds, up 2.7 percent adjusted for leap day, according to Ledman. Fluid milk sales during the same period totaled 26.2 billion pounds, down 2.2 percent. Ledman said that means an additional 3.15 billion pounds of milk were available dur-

Mielke from 13 session, and that means more demand for fluid milk for student lunches and feeding programs, and cheese demand has also been picking up.” He pointed to rising milk prices but admitted they’re still well below last year’s price levels but should continue to rise through the end of the year. The question, of

course, is whether the higher milk prices can keep pace with rising feed costs. “Longer term, there’s another positive sign,” Natzke said. “Dairy product manufacturers are investing in new and upgraded processing plants. Industry analysts estimate U.S. dairy product manufacturers will

invest $2.2 billion over the next couple of years, with more than 75 major capital projects expected to be underway before June 2014. Additional and more efficient capacity should lead to more demand for milk, a welcome sign for dairy farmers in any season,” he concluded. In dairy politics; National Milk’s Chris Galen reaffirmed the need to get a Farm Bill passed in his Thursday DairyLine report. He reminded listeners that the current bill expires September 30, leaving dairy programs such as the MILC, in limbo. He talked about the coalition of about 40 farm organizations which I reported on last week that is lobbying Congress to pass a new Farm Bill before fall. He reported that they will hold a rally on Capitol Hill September 12 to make a “visible and vocal push for Congress to pass a new Farm Bill.” For complete details, log on to www.farmbillnow.com.

Two Sarah's, and a Marcy Vermont DHIA is proud to announce the addition of three new employees to our team! Each of these ladies are covering different regions in our service area and we wanted to allow you to get to know them a little bit. Sarah Birch is originally from Craftsbury, Vermont where she attended Craftsbury Academy. Through some friends in Elementary School Sarah got involved with the local 4-H program. At first her primary interests were in poultry but once getting into High School she quickly became interested in showing dairy cattle. Sarah became even more interested in

She is looking forward to helping producers improve their management by utilizing information gathered and recorded by DHIA. Marcy currently covers 6 herds in Orleans and Caledonia County, Vermont.

dairy cattle after meeting her husband Andy, 3 years ago. Sarah and Andy currently live in Addison, VT where Andy is a herdsman on a dairy farm. They are hoping to start milking their own herd someday soon, inspiring to have mostly Holsteins with maybe a few Jerseys (which would be for Sarah.) Sarah knew a little bit about DHIA before applying to the job. A farm at which she worked at during high school had been on test and did owner sampling so it was somewhat familiar to her. She feels that DHIA offered a great opportunity to work with dairy cattle and dairy farmers. She is looking forward to getting to know all of the farmers she will be working with and to learn more about the industry. She continuously asks farmers questions to better her knowledge in the field. Sarah B. will be covering approximately 20 herds in Addison and Chittenden County, Vermont. Sarah Porrovechhio grew up on a dairy farm in Bernardston, MA the contained a herd of registered Holsteins and Jerseys. Sarah was a very active mem-

Record It… Manage It… Improve It…

Sarah enjoys going to the different herds through DHIA and getting to work with all of the farmers. She will be testing herds from 30 to 150 head of cattle, each one just a little different from the next. She is excited to be working for DHIA and the Dairy farmers in her area. She knows how DHIA plays an important role in helping farmers with milk quality, records and overall herd health. Sarah P. will be covering 19 herds in southern VT, NH and northern Mass. Marcy Guillette is a fourth generation dairy farmer from Derby, Vermont. Marcy attended the University of Vermont where she got a Bachelors degree in Animal Science. Since then she has worked for the University of Maine, UVM Extension and Cow Town Holsteins. Currently working part time for both VT DHIA and Semex USA, Marcy also spends her free time as a director on the Orleans County Farm Bureau and Fair Association, showing cows, harness racing and spending time with friends and family.

This week’s Sudoku solution


Changes to the hazard communication standard are coming by James Carrabba, The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine & Health — NYCAMH The Hazard Communication Standard, (HCS) 29 CFR 1910.1200 is a law administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and is applicable to agricultural workplaces. The purpose of this law is to ensure chemical safety in the workplace. Under this law, the identities and

hazards of workplace chemicals must be available and understandable to workers. Employers are required to inform workers of any chemical hazards in the workplace and to train workers on how to protect themselves from these hazards. In the past, this standard was sometimes referred to as “The Right to Know”, because under the law, workers have the right to know about the hazards of the chemicals

that they work with. The HCS is now in alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). These new changes will make it much easier for workers to identify chemical hazards and understand the potential hazards of chemicals that they must work with. According to OSHA, these updates will provide a more uniform and easier to understand

approach for classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. The former Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) will now be called Safety Data Sheets (SDS) under the new revisions. These changes will make it safer for workers by providing easily understandable information on appropriate handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals. These new changes were

the program 2. Create an inventory of all chemicals at the worksite 3. Properly label all chemical containers 4. Obtain and keep on file a SDS for each chemical 5. Train workers on how to read product labels and SDS’s 6. Train workers on how to protect themselves from the chemicals and document training The HCS states that SDS’s must be readily available to workers. Workers are free to consult the SDS anytime they have a question about a particular chemical. Before using a chemical, it is a good idea to check the SDS. The SDS will list the personal protective equipment needed and the appropriate first aid measures that should be taken in case of an emergency. Worker training is an important component of complying with the HCS. The employee training should include an explanation of the standard, how to read a label and SDS, where to find the SDS’s, types of chemicals used in the workplace, how to protect themselves from these chemicals and how to use the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Employers need to document the training. Pesticide labels are exempt from the HCS, but they will have the new SDS’s and need to be included in a farm’s HCS program. Pesticide labels are covered under the EPA Worker Protection Standard (WPS), 40 CFR 1970.

announced on March 26, 2012. Changes to the HCS will be phased in over the next few years and will be fully implemented by June 1, 2016. Major Changes to the Hazard Communication Standard: • Hazard Classification: Provides specific criteria for classification of health and physical hazards, as well as classification of mixtures. • Labels: Chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to provide a label and SDS that includes a harmonized signal word, pictogram, and hazard statement for each hazard class and category. By June 1, 2015, GHS standardized pictograms will be required on chemical labels to warn of hazards that each chemical has. Precautionary statements must also be provided. • Safety Data Sheets (SDS): (formerly known as MSDS) Will now have specific 16 section format. • Information and Training: Important to note; employers are required to train workers by Dec. 1, 2013 on the new label elements and SDS format to facilitate recognition and understanding. Other provisions of the HCS have not changed. To be in compliance with this standard, a business must have a written hazard communication program. The hazard communication program must address these six areas: 1. Name a person responsible for overseeing


Farm Safety Quiz

These farm safety tips are provided by the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® program. For information on how you can keep your child safe and healthy on the farm, ranch and at home, go to www.progressiveag.org Question: The driver of a car, traveling at 50 mph, sees a tractor about 400 feet ahead on the road. The tractor is traveling at 20 mph. How long does the driver of the car have to respond, slow down and avoid a rear end collision? a) More than 60 seconds b) 30 to 40 seconds c) Less than 10 seconds Answer: c) Less than 10 seconds. In those 10 seconds, the motorist must recognize a dangerous situation exists, determine the speed at which the tractor is moving, decide what action to take, take that action and actually slow the vehicle to avoid a rear-end collision. Tractor owners can alert drivers that they are traveling at slow speeds by displaying a slow-moving vehicle (SMV) emblem on the back of tractors and all slow-moving farm equipment. Question: When someone is overcome by manure gases, it is important to get that person out of the area as quickly as possible. True or False? Answer: False. As animal wastes break down, several gases are produced. These gases are often trapped in manure storage structures that do not have proper ventilation. Of these gases, hydrogen sulfide is the most dangerous and is responsible for the most manure-related deaths of both animals and people. In low concentrations, this gas smells like rotten eggs. But at higher concentrations, it paralyzes the sense of smell. Within seconds of exposure, hydrogen sulfide can cause unconsciousness and then death. NEVER try to rescue someone who is unconscious in a manure storage structure unless you have proper equipment and knowledge of the situation. Instead, call 911 or your local emergency medical service. Multiple deaths from manure gases are common because rescuers succumb to the same gases as the victim.

It is important that children stay away from manure storage areas. Fencing/child-proofing the area is highly recommended. Question: Lightening occurs only where it is raining. True or False? Answer: False. Con-

trary to popular belief, lightening often strikes areas outside of heavy rain and can occur as far as 10 miles away from any rainfall. Many people also believe that “heat lightening” after a very hot summer day poses no threat. In reality, “heat lightening” is from

a storm too far away for the thunder to be heard and it could be moving in your direction. Most deaths due to lightening happen outdoors. Make sure all family members know what to do if caught outside during a thunderstorm. In an open field, find a

low spot, away from trees, fences and poles. If you are in the woods, take shelter under shorter trees. If you have no shelter, make yourself the smallest target by squatting low to the ground on the balls of your feet. Minimize contact with the ground and

place your hands on your knees with your head between them when your skin tingles or your hair stands on end. If you are in a tractor or other vehicle, stay put, with your hands in your lap. Vehicles can provide better protection than lying exposed in open fields.


Politics, the Farm Bill and your next meal FOCUS ON AGRICULTURE

by Ben LaCross Parched and burnt cornfields, hayfields as yellow as the sun and chalky, dry soil are images we’ve seen from the record-setting drought of 2012. The farm bill is supposed to be the safety net for agriculture, es-

pecially in catastrophic disaster years such as this. But alas, chances of passing a new farm bill, which is set to expire on Sept. 30, is wilting as fast as a Midwestern cornstalk. Now, only a handful of days remains on the leg-

islative calendar before the election. The farm bill was growing strong and steady through June. The Senate, under the leadership of Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Ranking Member

Pat Roberts (R-KS), passed a strong, bipartisan bill. This bill showed real promise of reform and savings. The bill cut out the direct payment program, an antiquated system of risk management for farmers. Crop insurance was strength-

American Farm Bureau Federation ened and expanded, ensuring that farmers would have to have “skin in the game” for their risk management needs. The nutrition title, which makes up well over 80 percent of all

farm bill spending, was also reformed. The days of lottery winners who still receive food stamps would be gone. Conservation would be strengthened, allowing farmers to partner with the federal government to grow their environmental stewardship. Agriculture understands the importance of being fiscally responsible. Farmers are ready to do their part to reduce the national deficit. In fact, this bill would have saved taxpayers more than $23 billion, compared to previous farm bills. The bipartisan House Agriculture Committeepassed bill, crafted by Chairman Frank Lucas (R-OK) and Ranking Member Colin Peterson (D-MN), would have saved taxpayers even more. But, like the fields that never benefited from timely rains to save their crops, House leadership dealt what could amount to a drought-like blow by not bringing up the farm bill for a timely vote. Due to that lack of political urgency, farmers are now facing another potential disaster. This time, though, we can’t blame Mother Nature. This catastrophe is man-made. Northern Michigan experienced record warmth for more than seven days in the middle of March. While 85 degree temps were welcomed after a long winter, we fruit farmers knew we were in for trouble. The hot weather awoke our trees from dormancy, pushing flower buds to mature four to six weeks early. As the weather patterns returned to normal, so did the cold, freezing temperatures, and they froze out the majority of the fruit grown in Michigan, my cherries included. Tart cherries, the fruit you enjoy in pie, and the crop my family relies on for the majority of our harvest, is not eligible for crop insurance. Our industry has been challenging USDA’s Risk Management Agency to expand crop insurance to our fruit, but the wheels of bureaucracy seem to have been stuck in the mud.

Baler can flex up and down to minimize blockage in the pick-up. This feature also gives the operator the ability to hydraulically open the floor of the baler should a blockage occur so they can easily clear the plug without leaving the cab. The Xtracut17 is a 17knife chopper system on the pick-up rotor, with the option of utilizing knives in quantities of 0, 8, 9 or 17. This feature contributes to better bale density, fermentation, silage quality and digestibility, and also provides a consistent, precut material for additions to rations fed using a mixer wagon. In addition, the allnew, color touchscreen E-Link Pro monitor comes standard with the 504 PRO Baler. “The ELink Pro monitor gives customers some userfriendly capabilities and functions we haven’t offered before,” said Chrisman. “Operators will appreciate the ability to electronically control bale density from the cab, or the ramp ‘home’

sensor that alerts the operator when the bale is fully ejected for a faster tailgate cycle. They can also collect and store comprehensive field and operation statistics, among the many other features this monitor has to offer.” Other features of the 504 PRO Baler include the patented Powersplit Transmission with a split gearbox design for better use of horsepower when baling in heavy material, endless belts to eliminate the need for lace maintenance, and

heavy-duty chains, bearings and other drive components add durability when handling heavy, dense silage bales. For more information about the 504 PRO Baler and E-Link Pro monitor, visit vermeer.com.

Politics from 21 The Senate-passed farm bill contained provisions to expand crop insurance to help farmers like me manage risk when weather catastrophes are out of our control. Much of the pro-

posed legislation would help farmers who’ve been affected by this year’s drought, as well. Yet the House still has not scheduled a vote on this bill. Farmers certainly

aren’t the only people affected by the delayed passage of the farm bill. Twenty-three million people — one in every 12 working American’s — work in agriculture. Agriculture expands for-

bill’s nutrition programs, many more might struggle to eat. The droughts and other natural disasters may have done damage beyond repair to this year’s harvests, but the House could still breathe life back into this bill. It’s not too late.

ASI approves 2012-2013 Budget The American Sheep Industry Association’s (ASI) Board of Directors (BOD) approved the association’s fiscal year 2012-2013 wool budget and the legislative budget as well as approved the membership dues rate. The budget proposals were recommended to the directors by ASI’s American Wool Council and the executive board. The $2.25 million wool budget provides programs and services that will improve sheep production, marketing and information about American wool. The wool programs serve sheep producers, domestic and international wool initiatives and the use of American wool by the U.S. military for fire-retardant, moisture-managing, machine-washable and antimicrobial wool fabric. Funds are also provided for local wool projects through the Wool Outreach program. Board members also voted in favor of the Fund II budget, which is used for the legislative and membership activities of the association as well as association services. Finally, in a unanimous vote, the BOD approved the re-entry of Rhode Island Sheep Cooperative as an ASI member state making them the 46th mem-

ber. “I am very pleased with the board of director’s support for ASI’s innovative programs for the next fiscal year,” stated Margaret Soulen Hinson (Idaho), ASI president. “These approved programs are vital

to keeping our industry thriving and gaining strength into the future, and it is encouraging that the state organizations recognize that value.” Source: American Sheep Industry Weekly, Aug. 31
