Happy plants by Laura Rodley appy plants, one hundred and sixty varieties, both medicinal and cooking herbs, flowers and vegetables. That’s what Lauren Caprio and Danielle Smith of Bear Root Herb Farm sell to their customers at their roadside stand in front of their Florence home on Sundays and on Tuesdays at the Tuesday Northampton Market. On a particularly blustery Tuesday, they were one of 30 farmers selling their wares at the Tuesday Northampton Market, covered by moveable canvas tents with a thunderstorm beckoning.

through the raindrops to buy their plants. “Last year, it rained seven Tuesdays in a row,” said Caprio. Smith commented, “I’m obsessed with plants in general. I want to grow every single plant, which is not practical.” In February, they started growing their lush-leaved beets, eggplants, heirloom tomatoes, and a variety of tomato called Valley Girl to sell as starter plants in the 16 x 48 foot greenhouse they built in 2011. They also sell medicinal herbs of tansy, feverfew, calendula, borage, mullein, echinacea, elecampane, valerian, white sage and clary sage. Both have a heritage of gardening. “My Dad got

into hydroponics,” said Smith, which allows a controlled allotment of water and nutrients to flow underneath plants to nourish them. Her father, Stephen Smith, started a small sprout business as a hobby in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands where she grew up. Caprio’s grandmother, Elvira Russamano Caprio, grew and canned her own tomatoes. They are paying that memory of nourishment forward — to their plants and to their customers. Another reason their plants look so healthy is due to the organic potting soil and fertilizer, organic seaweed, and fish emulsion they use — though they are not “certified

organic.” The land where they have their greenhouse is situated within the approximately three acre Freedom Farm owned by Nooni Hammarlund, complete with cupola and five burros, with rich river-bottom soil. They till two gardens for their own food as well as for the other people living at Freedom Farm and neighbors. “The whole property is on the National Historic Register. It was a stop on the Underground Railroad,” said Smith. The building they live in was once farmworkers’ housing. Across the street is a 121-acre property, formerly the Bean and Allard Farms, that in 2011, after a two year long process, was saved from development by Grow Food Northampton, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting food security in Northampton. Directly across from the farmhouse buildings where they live is Florence Organic Gardening on Grow Food Northampton farmland, devoted to organic gardening and launched in 2012. It now has 250 gardens, noted Smith. They both work full time jobs elsewhere — Smith at the Kitchen Garden in Northampton

and Caprio at Whole Foods in Hadley. “Plants and food all the time,” said Caprio. They are only in their second year as a farm business. “We are trying things out. Last year, after our initial investments, we didn’t make

any money,” said Smith. If their repeat customers have anything to say about it, that could soon change. “We really enjoy it. We garden after work and on weekends. We have to have fun while we’re doing it,” said Smith.

Accomplished young farmer receives $10,000 sustainable agriculture scholarship from Annie’s Homegrown Accomplished young farmer hopes to pursue marketing career in Agricultural Business Management Organic Valley recently announced that Vermont farmer -owner Mathieu (Matt) J. Choiniere of Highgate Center, VT, was awarded a $10,000 Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship from Annie’s Homegrown, Inc. For more than 20 years, Annie’s has cultivated a “healthier and happier world by spreading goodness through nourishing foods, honest words, and conduct that is considerate and forever kind to the planet.” Since 2012, Annie’s has worked to perpetuate these beliefs by supporting young leaders in sustainable agriculture who wish to pursue graduate and undergraduate studies in the field. This year, 16 individuals were chosen to receive the Annie’s Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship, from Vermont to California. Matt Choiniere, a 4th generation farmer, was one of eight individuals to receive the highest honor. The Choiniere family has been producing milk for Organic Valley since 2005. Nestled in a small town near the Canadian border, Matt, with his sister and parents, produce milk, eggs, beef and vegetables on over 200 acres of rugged farmland. Matt is a devoted student, gifted athlete, and an integral member

of the family farm, where he contributes to daily chores in the barn, repairs and maintains farm machinery, and manages The Choiniere Family Farm website. Matt will be attending Morrisville State College as a rising freshmen in Fall 2013, where he hopes to obtain an associate’s degree in Agricultural Business Management with a concentration in marketing. Matt’s desire to continue working on the farm and his commitment to creating more sustainable farm operations made him an easy choice for the Annie’s Homegrown Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship. His ambition and resourcefulness shine in the mission statement that he submitted to Annie’s: “My vision of the successful future farmer is one who will educate the consumer as well as supply them directly with their products, but also the byproducts of their cash crop (such as bull calves, heat from milk, fallow grass in buffer strips, and manure), into a value added product,” says Choiniere. “I want to continue to push the limits of sustainable agriculture and set the standard for farmers to come.”

What happens when Monsanto’s Roundup Ready soybean patent expires? patent expires. There is no need for them to stop selling Roundup Ready technology in order to sell the new trait. • Universities will also be able to offer soybean varieties containing the Roundup Ready trait. A number of universities have been breeding with the Roundup Ready soybean trait for a number of years and they will be able to continue this both now and following expiration of the patent. A sidebar to the last bullet point of the expiration process is that the end of Roundup Ready 1 could lead to new university-based crop-breeding programs that might make seed technology more freely available even though it might cost them corporate financial support. Is this the case at Penn State? “Not in the short term,” according to Penn State Agronomist Greg Roth, PhD. “Part of the problem of the erosion of the breeding programs has been the difficulty in capturing some of the value from the species that they’ve developed. When farmers replant the seed, then there’s no economic incentive for the universities or other people to develop breeding programs; somehow maintaining that value connection is critical. In some way, universities have to figure out how to capture some of that economic value to support even traditional breeding programs let alone molecularbased breeding programs that are engineered by industry. We are not in a position to develop a soybean breeding program because of the Roundup seed going off patent.” Patent Protection, Innovation and Choice The fact that Monsanto and other biotech companies continue to invest in the development of new soybean traits that will benefit farmers shows the U.S. patent system provides incentive for innovation.

The transition of Roundup Ready soybean technology into the public domain represents another benefit — patent expiration provides a means for public access to this technology. This system motivates individuals as well as companies, to invest in all types of new technologies that make U.S. farmers and our economy more competitive. Roundup Ready Trait and Soybean Variety Patents Despite the advantage of the Genuity™ Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait, some farmers may want to use Roundup Ready soybean technology following the end of the trait patent. Many Roundup Ready varieties are also covered by variety patents and plant variety protection certificates. Monsanto will continue to enforce its intellectual property, including variety patents, with respect to commercial and developmental use of patented Roundup Ready varieties after the patent expiry. However, as stated above, Monsanto will not use variety patents against U.S. farmers who save soybean varieties containing the Roundup Ready trait for planting on their own farms after patent expiration. One school of thought maintains that wider availability of inexpensive Roundup Ready seed could worsen the problem of weeds that are resistant to glyphosate. Is that too much speculation? “I would say so,” says Roth. “The marketplace is pretty well saturated with Roundup Ready and many farmers are moving towards alternative herbicides to supplement their Roundup applications.” The real question is what happens when the patent actually expires? What choices will farmers have? “It’s complicated,” Roth says. “A lot of Roundup Ready soybeans now are Roundup Ready 2, the second patented event that is not expiring. Many seed companies are rapidly moving toward those genetics.” Another issue Roth foresees is that some of the Roundup Ready 1 genetics contain other patented technologies that prohibit the replanting of the seed grown from those varieties. To be clear, this does not reference seed-saving. “What they’re talking about,” says Roth, “is you growing the seed and using it in the second year. In that case, the farmer is violating the agreement they signed with the seed company,” which is, basically, that they would not do that. Another potential question in the minds of farmers is whether the Genuity Roundup

Ready 2 Yield seeds will afford advantages other than those inherent in Roundup Ready 1. Roth says, “The second one, not in all cases, is reported to have better placement of the gene, and better backgrounds of genetics for superior performance. Having said that, there are some Roundup Ready 1 varieties that have done exceptionally well. So it is not crystal clear. “Biotech regulations are varied across the world. A major issue in the development of biotech products in the future is the streamlining of the registration in Europe, Japan, China, especially those countries.” Roth notes that checking the websites of companies

which deal with transgenic soybeans that they involve pest resistance, multiple herbicides, disease resistance, nutritional qualities, and they have a 10-year release plan of maybe 15 things besides just the Roundup Ready. “The issue,” says Roth, “is they’ve got to figure out how to get all those materials through the registration process in other countries. In some cases there could be trade barrier issues related to the soil registration, along with possible differences in philosophy about GMOs in Europe versus the United States. It’s unsure how much each of those things contributes to that complexity of the process.”

by Steve Wagner “The world’s most widely adopted biotech trait, Roundup Ready® soybeans, is set to go off patent soon in the U.S. — the last applicable Monsanto-owned patent is expected to expire in 2014.” In cutting-to-the-chase fashion, the Monsanto press release’s first line explains it very clearly. Other things Monsanto wants you to know are bulletpointed below: • Monsanto is amending all Roundup Ready soybean trait licenses to extend through the final patent expiration. As a result, the last crop year for which Monsanto will collect royalties on the technology is 2014. • Licensees have no obligation to destroy or return seed due to expiration of the Roundup Ready soybean trait licenses. • Monsanto will not use variety patents against U.S. farmers who save varieties containing the Roundup Ready trait for planting on their own farms after expiration of the trait patent. Farmers should check with seed suppliers regarding the policy for seed varieties developed by other companies and contain the Roundup Ready trait. • Monsanto will maintain full global regulatory support for this first-generation technology through 2021. This will allow grain from the 2014 crop to be sold and processed. We will continue to monitor and assess the planned use of this first-generation technology beyond 2021 and work with appropriate stakeholders on any extension of regulatory support that may be needed. • Seed company licensees who choose to work with Genuity™ Roundup Ready 2 Yield technology will be able to continue to sell varieties with Roundup Ready after the

Tree Fruit Twilight Meeting by Heather Bryant, Regional Field Specialist, Food and Agriculture The New Hampshire Fruit Grower’s Association holds five twilight meetings throughout the summer in collaboration with UNH Cooperative Extension. The most recent one was hosted by Riverview Farm in Plainfield, NH on June 12. The meetings are an opportunity for growers to get together for pest updates and ask questions of each other and Extension professionals. Equally important, the meetings are an opportunity to earn continuing education credits needed to keep their pesticide licenses current and stay

up to date on the latest research on how to use pesticides safely and sparingly. This meeting started off with a fascinating demonstration by OESCO (Orchard and Equipment Supply Company), on a new picking aid they are marketing for growers using high density planting systems. The picking aid is a self-propelled machine that has space for four pickers to stand. It moves slowly through the field allowing the pickers to pick and place the fruit on a conveyor that sends them directly into the bins without the need to climb up and down ladders, saving time and limiting fatigue while still allowing pickers to minimize fruit

bruising. The manufacturer of this equipment has been building them for use in Europe for 30 years now. Paul and Nancy Franklin, our hosts and owners of Riverview Farm then took us on a tour of their apple, blueberry and raspberry orchard, describing how they have grown their business over the last 30 years. Along the way we stopped at several points to allow growers to ask questions and discuss pest control options. Plant Health Specialist Cheryl Smith provided an update on apple scab saying that, “scab season has tentatively been declared over.” Apple scab is a fungal plant disease that does not

make apples inedible, but does create unsightly lesions that limit marketability. Fungicides are available to combat the disease, and scientists have created a scab monitoring program that, along with scouting techniques the orchardist uses, allow them to minimize the use of fungicides. The program combines weather monitoring and computer modeling, which has been a useful tool for growers when used together with ground truthing.

Entomologist Alan Eaton discussed the symptoms and management options of a number of common fruit insect pests including plum curculio, leafhoppers, San Jose scale and the spotted wing drosophila. He also gave a sneak peak at a new trap that is being developed to monitor for brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), an invasive insect that is causing challenges for fruit, vegetable, and corn growing farms in the Mid Atla-

ntic. BMSB has been found in New Hampshire but it does not yet have the population numbers to cause economic damage to farms here. There are six more informational meetings like this one on both fruit and vegetable production planned for this year. For more information on these and other meetings and workshops held by Cooperative Extension please visit our website: http://extension.unh.ed u / F r u i t - Ve g e t a b l e Production/Events.

How concerned should you be about Meadow Foxtail in your hay fields and pastures? Daniel Hudson Agronomist, UVM Extension

Concerns About Yield and Forage Quality It is intuitive that early seed head production translates to ‘stemminess’ and ‘low forage quality’ in the minds of dairy farmers and dairy nutrition-

ists. While that association is legitimate and of serious concern, some dairy farmers have decided that they have no choice but to live with meadow foxtail. In their estimation, the cost of taking land out of production for a year to eradicate the meadow foxtail and then reseeding would take a very long time to recover. Interestingly, farmer testimony suggests that the forage quality from fields infested with meadow foxtail is not as bad as they expected and is corroborated by research done in Alberta in 1987 - 1989. This research project investigated total dry-matter yield, leaf to stem ratios, crude protein levels, ADF/NDF levels, and digestible organic matter levels of meadow foxtail compared to other forage grasses. Comments about the study are here limited to contrasting the yield and qualities of meadow foxtail and orchardgrass only. The data from the second year of the research (1989) was probably more relevant than from 1987 because the grasses that were harvested in 1989 had forage quality levels dairy farmers often target, while the 1987 crop did not. How did the yield of meadow foxtail compare with orchardgrass? In this case, the threecut forage dry matter yield of the meadow foxtail was 22 percent lower than orchardgrass. This is a serious problem, but it is important to keep in mind that many of our perennial hayfields and pastures in the Northeast are composed largely of Kentucky bluegrass and other grasses, which also have a considerably lower yield potential than orchardgrass under normal management. It is worth noting that modern orchardgrass cultivars are probably much higher-yielding than the variety used in 1989 while the yield and quality characteristics of meadow foxtail probably have not improved since then. Just how stemmy is meadow foxtail compared to orchardgrass? Very stemmy. To describe the relative stemminess of the grasses, the researchers basically separated the leaves and stems then dried and weighed them to establish leaf/stem ratio for each cutting. In 1989 for each ton of orchardgrass leaves,

Management Implications Once meadow foxtail is in your fields, it will be difficult to eradicate completely. The seeds move with harvest machinery, animals, and to a lesser degree, wind and water. In fields with a significant amount of meadow foxtail, taking the first cutting early will reduce the spread of viable meadow foxtail seeds and result in better forage quality. Depending on the other species of grasses you have in your field, a wickapplication of glyphosate might be an option to vastly reducing the amount of meadow foxtail in your fields, although some collateral damage is impossible to avoid. Should you want meadow foxtail in your fields? No, but you need to run the numbers carefully to see if it is worth trying to eradicate it from your field if it is there already. If your fields are in a conventional (i.e., not organic) rota-

Meadow foxtail thrives in moist and/or fine-textured soils and is intolerant of drought. Early seed production, vigorous seedlings, rhizomes, and rooting from lower nodes allow this plant to form a sod and it can quickly dominate pastures and hay fields under certain conditions.

tion, then the next rotation to corn has the potential to all but eradicate it from the field for a time. Staying in corn for two years with a cover crop in between would be even more effective. If you have some hay fields that are not in rotation

with an annual crop, you should account for the annual yield losses and lower feed quality associated with this crop when making reseeding decisions. Contact Dan at daniel.hudson@uvm.edu.

Correction: In the June 10 issue of Dan Hudson’s column, Country Folks printed the following: “Stockpiling potential: Tall fescue stays green and retains forage quality much later in the season than other forage species. Stockpiling is the planned accumulation of pasture biomass for fall and winter grazing. While this could be done in Vermont, the potential for the practice is lower than it is in areas that do not tend to get more than six percent of snow for extended periods of time.” This was an error. It should have read six inches, not six percent. Country Folks apologizes for the confusion.

by Daniel Hudson, UVM Extension Agronomist Vermont farmers have been noticing a species of grass that has been increasing its presence in local hayfields and pastures. From a distance the seed head of this grass looks like that of timothy, but farmers know it cannot be because the seed heads of this grass emerge several weeks before most other grasses, while timothy is typically the last grass species to produce seed heads. This grass is called meadow foxtail (Alopecurus pratensis L.) and has been spreading in Vermont for more than a generation — probably much longer than that. This species is native to Eurasia and has adapted to regions within most of the states and provinces of the U.S. and Canada. Meadow foxtail is a longlived perennial grass that thrives in moist and/or finetextured soils and is intolerant of drought. Early seed production, vigorous seedlings, rhizomes, and rooting from lower nodes allow this plant to form a sod and it can quickly dominate pastures and hay fields under certain conditions. While meadow foxtail is quite responsive to nitrogen inputs, its yield potential is lower than most forage grasses used in dairy systems. As a pasture species, characteristic early maturity causes reduced palatability early in the grazing season. In the Northeast, once the coarse stems of the first growth are removed, the vegetative regrowth is palatable to livestock throughout the grazing season. In drier climates, the palatability is said to decline during the grazing season. The viability of seeds in the soil seed bank is not known but is thought to be relatively short. While meadow foxtail seed can be purchased, there are no improved cultivars available in the U.S. and most commercial seed available here is probably from feral populations in the state of Oregon.

there were 0.59 tons of stems; and for each ton of meadow foxtail leaves, there were 1.72 tons of stems! Because dairy farmers and nutritionists typically equate stemminess with high fiber levels, these ratios may lead us to believe that the meadow foxtail has extremely poor forage quality. So what about the protein and fiber levels? Considering the relative stemminess of the meadow foxtail, the results of this part of the study were counterintuitive. To begin, the protein levels of analogous plant parts (stem vs. leaf) was the same or higher for meadow foxtail as it was for orchardgrass. On a whole-plant basis, meadow foxtail had higher protein levels for cuts 1 and 2, but the average for the year was not significantly different. Neutral detergent fiber (NDF) levels were not different for any cuttings, while acid detergent fiber (ADF) levels differed only for the first cutting, with orchardgrass and meadow foxtail at 18 percent and 21 percent ADF, respectively. In vitro digestible organic matter (IVDOM) averaged 3 percent higher for orchardgrass. To summarize, meadow foxtail is not as nasty a feed as you might think by looking at it. The data from 1989 suggests that the biggest downsides meadow foxtail had compared to orchardgrass were a 22 percent lower yield and slightly higher ADF levels in the first cutting.


Crop Comments by Paris Reidhead Field Crops Consultant

Damask Violet, Summer Lilac, Mother-of-theEvening, Sweet Rocket, and Wild Phlox. Well, 2013 seems to be another year for H. matronalis (or whatever common name you wish to call it). According to the Invasive Plant Atlas of New England, the weed Hesperis Matronalis is “An upright, multi-branched, short-lived perennial or biennial which typically grows 2-3 feet tall (less frequently to 4 feet). Features white, lavender or purple, 1/2 inch, 4-

petaled flowers in loose, terminal racemes which bloom in late spring. Flowers are very fragrant, particularly in the evening (Hesperis comes from the Greek word for evening).” We can thank Eastern Europe for sending us this weed. As far back as the 1700s, H. matronalis became naturalized in many areas of eastern North America as a garden escapee. Even now, plants of this species are cultivated in many parts of the globe due to their attractive springtime-

I called the column “Attractive Nuisance”. This weed is very commonplace along road shoulders, as well as edges of meadows. Its scientific name is Hesperis matronalis. It has a number of common names, the most frequently used being

blooming flowers. The common name of H. matronalis that I used three years ago was Sweet Rocket. Since I’m given somewhat to equal opportunity, this time I’ll refer to it as Wild Phlox (Yeah, I thought it was spelled with an “f” also). Wild Phlox can grow 40 inches or taller, with multiple upright hairy stems. Typically the first year of growth produces a mound of foliage, with flowering occurring the second year. Usually these plants are biennials, but some varieties are perennials. The plants have showy blooms in early to midspring. The leaves are alternately arranged on upright stems. Leaves have short hairs on both top and bottom surfaces,

giving the foliage a somewhat rough feeling. The largest leaves of Wild Phlox are five inches long and one inch wide. Each flower is almost an inch across, and has four petals. Although some cultivated varieties may have mixed colors on their petals, the wild forms are almost entirely purple, lavender, or white. Some Wild Phlox plants can bloom until August, but warm weather shortens the blooming period. Most likely because of protracted cool spring weather, these plants are so prolific this year along roadsides, particularly county and town. So one might think that highway departments are planting them in some kind of beautification project…

not likely with budget cuts so rampant. I don’t think I can drive more than a hundred yards without seeing at least one of these specimens. The reason I am so interested in these plants is because I believe the Wild Phlox blossom color manifestation is a function of classic blending genetics. In other words the flowers are colored purple, white, or lavender (which can be defined as half purple/half white). I discussed my blending ideas with one botanical expert (who shall remain nameless); he agrees with me on the blending behavior of H. matronalis.

Crop from A6 with genetic blending the traits’ appearances are not dominant over each other, so neither is fully expressed. Some examples of incomplete dominance are: skin color, hair body (curly, wavy, straight), and height in humans. With livestock the most unquestioned example of blending occurs within the Shorthorn cattle breed and its hair color trait. Shorthorn cattle have no recessive genes for color, unlike Holstein: a black-and-white Holstein could be carrying a recessive gene for red-

and-white color; this is because that animal had one parent that was red and white, and the other parent was black and white. With the Shorthorn breed, if one parent is white and the other is red, the off-spring will be a blend of the two colors, known as roan. So in terms of color genetics, Shorthorn cattle practice blending as much as Wild Phlox weeds. This blending tendency is becoming evident in cattle in another trait which will, I believe, prove to be much more

significant than flower color in a weed, or even hair color in a bovine. That trait relates to the make-up of casein, the most common protein in milk. There is a variation in cow’s milk casein which makes it hard to digest for some groups of people… certain ethnic groups, elderly people, and folks with celiac issues (like gluten intolerance). This change was actually a genetic mutation that took place in Northern European cattle breeds (including those on the British Isles) about 8,000 years

ago. That variation is referred to as A1 milk. Interestingly, the older unchanged genotype for casein configuration is referred to as A2. And somewhere between 95 and 99 percent of people have no digestive (or other health) issues with A2 milk. Fortunately… and wonderfully… the genetic blending rules apply to the A1 vs. A2 issue. A fairly sophisticated... and yet economical... genetic test can determine if a particular cow is pure A1, pure A2, or hybrid A1/A2. Every dairy cow on the planet is one of these three options, mak-

ing her unique from every other mammalian female (no other mammal species underwent the casein mutation like cows did). Many times folks who think they are lactose-intolerant actually have issues with A1 milk... and would not have problems with A2 milk. If a bull that is hybrid A1/A2 is bred to a cow that is also hybrid A1/A2, we would expect the resulting offspring to be 25 percent A1/A1, 50 percent A1/A2, and 25 percent A2/A2. And the laboratory tests looking for these casein trait

genes can “see” them as well as I could see white, lavender, and purple Wild Phlox earlier today (as I write). The blending principle will make it possible for a lot more people to enjoy drinking milk, once they know that it came from an A2/A2 cow. Using the same guidelines, one can take two lavender Wild Phlox plants, crossbreed them, and expect the next generation to be 25 percent white, 50 percent lavender, and 25 percent purple.

Yamaha announces all-new three-person VIKING™ Side-by-Side vehicle Real-world power, utility and reliability with all-day comfort; assembled in the U.S.A. all three occupants. This is the only vehicle in its class with three-point seat belts for everyone, plus headrests all around, adjustable handholds for both passengers and a textured floorboard with dedicated foot wells. Its seating position even provides for more head room than competitive models without sacrificing critical ground clearance. All told, the Viking boasts the most comfortable and secure seating in its class. Strongest Engine Power comes from Yamaha’s strongest fourwheel drive engine to date — a 686cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke, SOHC, singlecylinder, 4-valve fuel-injected engine that provides peak performance at maximum capacity. This durable engine has been optimized for working conditions with strong low-end torque while quick throttle response and smooth power delivery are maintained

throughout the rev range. Yamaha Fuel Injection delivers consistent starts and power even at high elevation and in cold weather, and the 9.7 gallon fuel tank allows for long days in the field or on the trail. While the Viking’s 700cc-class engine already makes more power than some larger 800cc-class machines, the vehicle’s handling and off-road capabilities truly set it apart. Durable machine; confident handling Yamaha’s three-way On Command®system, featuring 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with differential lock, is a driver-controlled system with an automotive-type rotary dial selector. This drivercontrolled system gives the driver the control and confidence to lock in all four wheels based on the terrain — a significant benefit over other automated systems on competitive models.

transmission with high, low and reverse has proven to be the industry’s most durable CVT system with dual speed gearing and an automatic centrifugal clutch that maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear and the industry’s most natural feeling all-wheel engine braking. The Viking’s optional Electric Power Steering (EPS) system provides the industry’s best balance of light feel with positive feedback from the terrain. The system reads steering wheel torque, vehicle speed, On Command setting and negative feedback to determine the appropriate amount of assist in any given situation. The Viking’s utility functions combined with Yamaha’s proven durability were designed for hard work, tough chores and long days in the field or on the trail. The rear steel cargo bed was purpose-built for durability and convenience. Large enough to carry a fully loaded pallet, the assisted dump bed can pack up to 600 pounds of equipment and supplies while the standard twoinch receiver hitch is rat-

ed to pull 1,500 pounds. The Viking’s chassis also contributes to its offroad capability with nearly 12 inches of ground clearance at the lowest point, a full steel/composite smooth skid plate front-to-back and sideto-side, and an optimized frame with up-turned side rails allowing for smoother transitions over obstacles. The Viking features light, natural-feel handling in both the EPS and non-EPS configurations. The front and rear suspensions outperform the competition even with heavy loads. Comfortable ride The Viking’s long-travel, four-wheel independent suspension is perfectly balanced to provide a plush and comfortable ride with a quality damping feel in rough terrain, all while carrying either a light or full load. The gas charged shocks help reach the delicate balance of damping and resistance with one or three people, fully loaded or empty. The all-new Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 tires were designed specifically and exclusively for the Viking with maximum performance and durability. The new Big Horns provide

an optimized balance of sidewall and tread center stiffness in a tire that delivers an excellent combination of traction, precise steering and comfort. The Viking’s large diameter front and rear brake discs with dual piston calipers on all four wheels ensure good balance and power during braking — with or without cargo. The Viking also comes equipped with a mechanical parking disc brake. Little extras are a big deal when they help increase productivity and fun. Things like marinegrade electrical connections and wiring, a sealed maintenance-free battery, digital meter and easily accessible and serviceable foam air filter and engine are built into the Viking to help owners stay on task or trail — and out of the shop. The all-new Viking EPS and non-EPS models will be available starting this August. Standard models come in Steel Blue, Hunter Green (with sun top), Red (with sun top) and Realtree AP HD camo (with sun top). Details at www.YamahaOutdoors.com.

Soybean, corn, sunflower and canola growers press House on Farm Bill In a letter to lawmakers June 13, the American Soybean Association (ASA), National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), National Sunflower Association and the U.S. Canola Association urged the House of Representatives to quickly consider and pass H.R. 1947, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (“FARRM”) Act.

ty we need moving forward,” said ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean grower from Canton, MS. “We are convinced that lawmakers can work together to pass a bill that both supports agriculture and confronts our budgetary obligations responsibly.” “We were pleased to see the 2013 farm bill pass with such strong support in the Senate

“Passing a comprehensive, market oriented farm bill is critically important to not only agriculture but to every American.”

Page 10 - Section A • COUNTRY FOLKS New England • June 24, 2013

~ Pam Johnson “Our organizations support many of the programs included in H.R. 1947, as reported by the Committee on Agriculture. The bill would consolidate conservation programs, reauthorize and fund agricultural research, energy, and export promotion programs, and make improvements in federal crop insurance. We strongly support these provisions, and ask that you oppose any amendments which would eliminate or weaken them,” said the groups in the letter. “We are very encouraged by the momentum that the farm bill has going into the House, and we urge Representatives to act quickly to provide farmers with the certain-

last week and urge the House to swiftly follow suit,” NCGA President Pam Johnson, a corn farmer from Floyd, Iowa said. “Passing a comprehensive, market oriented farm bill is critically important to not only agriculture but to every American. We encourage the House to adopt policy that will be both responsive to taxpayers and effective in helping farms remain viable and productive.” The groups noted, however, their concern with the bill’s Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program option, which they argued would set high, fixed reference prices for program crops which, in some cases, exceed their historical prices and cost of production; and tie

payments to producers to crops they grow in the current year, which could distort planting decisions and production if market prices fall below their support levels. “Since the 1996 Farm Bill… farm policy has provided planting flexibility, encouraging producers to respond to market signals in making their planting decisions rather than to the prospect of receiving government payments,” wrote the groups. “We do not want to see policies return to the era of high supports tied to current-year plantings, which distorted crop production in the 1980’s. The PLC program in the Committee bill should be modified to make it responsive to the market rather than the government.” The groups spoke to a potential amendment from Representative Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio) that would address their concerns by setting reference prices at a percentage of recent average market prices, which do not exceed production costs. The Gibbs amendment would also provide for payments on historical crop acreage bases

rather than on currentyear plantings. “These changes would make the PLC program more market-oriented and significantly reduce the risk of

distorting planting decisions and production,” argued the groups. “They would also reduce the likelihood of the program violating U.S. commit-

ments under the WTO. Moreover, they would achieve an estimated $10 billion in savings in addition to the Committee bill.”

Local 4-H’ers learn new skills at Addison County 4-H Horse Clinic NEW HAVEN, VT — Forty-four youths attended the Addison County 4H Horse Clinic, May 31June 2 at the Addison County Fair and Field Days grounds in New Haven to improve their riding skills and learn about horsemanship, safety and other equine topics. University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H in Addison County sponsored the event, which included workshops, trail rides, a gymnkana and other activities, including a presentation by Dr. Keely Henderson, a mobile equine veterinarian from Bristol. Special ac-

tivities were planned for kids who did not bring a horse. The kids and their horses camped overnight at the fairgrounds. Participating clubs included the Addison Flaming Manes, Addison; Mountain View 4-H, Bridport, New Haven Twilight Tails, New Haven; Silver Hooves, Cornwall; Sky Riders, Brandon; Stride Out, Bridport and TallyHo, Orwell. Some independent 4-H members also attended. New Haven Twilight Tails was presented with an award for best stable management. On Saturday riders of all abilities received rid-

ing lessons both in the morning and the afternoon. Beginners and advanced beginners also participated in a stable management workshop on what to include in a tack box. Juniors (10-13 years old) and seniors (14 and up) had the choice of drill team or stall safety workshops. For the latter, a stall was set up with 30 hazards for them to identify to make the stall safe for a horse. Thirteen youths signed up for the drill team, learning patterns and practicing for a drill team performance the following day for par-

ents, friends and fellow campers. The 4-H’ers with jumping experience participated in a workshop designed to hone their skills while others went on a trail ride. The clinic also included a gymnkana and roping demonstration and chance to try roping as well as an ice cream social sponsored by the Addison County 4H Foundation. For more information about the Addison County 4-H horse program, please contact Martha Seifert, UVM Extension 4-H educator, at 802388-4969.

Soybean Marketing and Production College will help producers capitalize on agriculture trends The American Soybean Association (ASA) has created a new Soybean Marketing and Production College program to educate producers on how to capitalize on the growing trends and new technologies in agriculture to maximize on-farm profitability. The event takes place in Minneapolis, July 29-30. Growers do not have to be ASA members to participate. “Global sustainability requirements, meeting world soybean

demand, weed management and herbicide resistance issues, new precision ag technologies — these issues are all impacting the profitability of soybean growers,” said ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, MS. “ASA’s Soybean Marketing and Production College will give growers hands-on training in these areas, with breakout sessions and presentations from industry experts, in addition to a session on succes-

sion planning.” Ohio State University’s Dr. Matt Roberts, industry consultant on grain, petroleum, and biofuels markets and policy, headlines the Opening General Session. Roberts will review the current supply and demand situation for grains and oilseeds globally, what that means for prices, and how growers can best take advantage of these trends in their own marketing decisions.

members. They charged that ethanol mandates have resulted in sizeable increases in feed prices and they emphasized the need for new dairy policy to address the cost of production, which one panelist said averaged about $24 per hundredweight nationally, about $5 more than farmers are receiving for their milk. It was also pointed out that supply management won't accomplish much if imports make up any shortfall. They admitted that the current dairy title is likely to be a part of the final Farm Bill and their only option then would be to lobby lawmakers via future milk price hearings that the Secretary of Agriculture is mandated to hold in the Farm Bill. On another policy matter of importance to the dairy industry, debate has begun on immigration reform. The Senate decided to limit it debate, in hope of having a bill passed by July 4. A NMPF press release reported that the Senate version contains a new visa program for dairy farm workers, one it helped to shape. "This new approach is better for employers, better for employees, better for law enforcement, better for the economy, it's better for America," NMPF concluded.

Checking the cash dairy markets; cheese was mixed this week. The blocks fell to $1.7225 per pound, down 2 1/2-cents on the week but still 10 3/4cents above a year ago. The barrels closed at $1.7725, up a penny and a quarter on the week, 20 cents above a year ago, and a nickel above the blocks. Thirteen cars of block were sold on the week and two of barrel. The AMS-surveyed U.S. average block price fell to $1.7775, down 3.4 cents. Barrel averaged $1.7621, down 1.3 cents. Cheese production is lower than previous months, but remains above a year ago, according to USDA's Dairy Market News (DMN). Milk supplies for manufacturing are increasing as Class I usage falls due to schools closing for summer. Much of this milk will go to Class III cheese and the increased production will add to already heavy inventories in storage. Demand is reported to be lackluster with many buyers hoping to wait for a bottom in prices, DMN said. Cheese exports for January to April totaled 210.7 million pounds, up 7 percent from a year ago. Jerry Dryer points out

in his June 7 Dairy and Food Market Analyst that April export sales "underlined the fact that the USA is a major player in the world marketplace." He wrote that the April Dairy Products report "suggests that output might not be keeping up with demand." Cheese exports, for example, consumed 5.7 percent of the cheese produced this year; however, production January through April was only up 2.3 percent. Butter production was up 3.3 percent, but exports were up 5.8 percent. Nearly two-thirds of the April nonfat dry milk/ skim milk powder production left the country. "Suddenly, the inventories don't look as daunting," concludes Dryer. Speaking of exports; Cooperative Working Together (CWT) accepted seven requests for export assistance this week to sell 1.612 million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia. The product will be delivered through October 2013. CWT members also agreed to increase its membership requirement from 2 cents per cwt. to 4 cents, effective July 1 and running through December 31,

That was evidenced in a special tele-conference on Wednesday by the National Family Farm Coalition (NFFC). The conference featured a panel of dairy producers from Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin, and California who voiced disappointment in the dairy title, charging that the margin insurance program contained in the legislation will not cover losses incurred by farmers and that taxpayers will be stuck picking up the tab. Several panelists charged that dairy cooperatives are not representing their farmer

Crop from A13 2015. The farmer-funded program is in its 11th year and, since the start of 2011, has helped member cooperatives sell 257.7 million pounds of American-type cheeses and 111.5 million pounds of butter to 39 countries, according to a CWT press release. "With the export market growing at a rate five to eight times faster than the U.S. market, the vote by CWT's member cooperatives will ensure the U.S. is a consistent and competitive supplier of dairy products in the world's growing dairy markets," said NMPF President and CEO, Jerry Kozak. NMPF also announced this week that Chief Operating Officer Jim Mulhern will take over as President and CEO on January 1, 2014 for the retiring Kozak. Mulhern joined NMPF in January and has managed NMPF's communications, government relations, and membership functions. Kozak will continue his involvement with the organization's CWT program. Cash butter closed the week a penny lower, at $1.5350, a half-cent below a year ago when the spot price gained 12 1/4-cents on the week, marching to $1.93 by the second week of October. Only three cars were sold on the week and AMS butter averaged $1.55, down 6.8 cents. Weekly butter stocks were up 52.1 percent from a year ago, according to FC Stone's June 13 eDairy Insider Opening Bell, and at their highest level since Sept. 7, 2009. The Foreign Agricultural Service reports that exports of butter and milkfat for January to April totaled 43 million pounds, up 4 percent or 1.8 million pounds from the same period a year ago. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.7025, up a penny on the week. Extra Grade remained at $1.70. The AMS powder average move up a penny and a half, to $1.6839. Dry whey dropped 1.3 cents, to 56.82 cents per pound. The Agriculture Department's World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report

did not change its 2013 milk production forecast from last month but lowered 2014 output as "relatively weak milk-to-feed ratios in the third and fourth quarter of 2013 are expected to slow production growth in the first half of 2014." Look for 2013 milk

production to hit 201.8 billion pounds, up from 200.3 billion in 2012 and 196.2 billion in 2011. The 2014 estimate, now put at 204.5 billion, is down 100 million pounds from last month's projection. Fat basis exports for 2013 were lowered based

on slow butter exports through April. Skim-solid exports were higher based on expectations of continued robust nonfat dry milk (NDM) exports. Fat and skim basis exports for 2014 were unchanged. Fat basis imports were raised for 2013 and 2014.

Forecasts for 2013 cheese and butter prices were lowered from last month, reflecting greater stocks and weaker-thanexpected prices to date. The NDM price was raised on tightening supplies and expectations of continued robust export demand. The price range

for whey was narrowed. As a result of the lower cheese price forecast, the Class III price expectation was reduced. Look for the 2013 Class III to average $17.80$18.20 per cwt., up from $17.44 in 2012 and com-

pares to $18.37 in 2011. The 2014 average is expected at $17-$18. The Class IV price prediction is down as lower butter prices more than offset higher NDM. The 2013 average is now projected at $18.15-$18.65. The 2014 average was projected to average $17.75-$18.85. The 2014 butter price forecast was lowered as stocks remain high, but other product prices were unchanged. The Class III price forecast was unchanged, but the Class IV price was lowered. The report was neutral for soybeans but bearish for corn, according to the Insider Opening Bell. "While USDA lowered projected corn production 135 million bushels to 14 billion, average yield by 1.5 bushels to 156.5 bushels, and new-crop carryout to 1.949 billion bushels, the cuts were not as large as expected." The beans supply-anddemand picture was largely left unchanged. Milk production is steady to increasing in most regions of the nation, according to

USDA's weekly update. Extreme heat in the Southwest and California was putting increased stress on those dairy herds. California's July Class I milk prices were not announced this week but have been delayed until June 21 due to a hearing to consider possible increases to the Golden State's milk prices. The Milk Producers Council's Rob Vandenheuvel, in his June 7 member newsletter, points to the differences between the 4b and Federal Order Class III prices and says the "California Discount" is enjoyed by California's roughly 60 cheese manufacturers and has reached about $846,000,000 since January 2010. He charged that it "rests on the backs of the roughly 1,600 dairy farms left in California or almost $500,000 per 1,000-cow dairy." "California's dairy families have long argued that this gap runs directly against the guidelines in California law that requires our prices to be in a 'reasonable and sound

economic relationship' with what comparable milk is sold for around the country. The State's cheese manufacturers come up with excuse after excuse about why it's perfectly appropriate to have this huge discount in the price they pay for milk, but the facts simply don't support their claims. About 75 percent of California's milk production is sold to make either cheese or butter and nonfat dry milk," according to Vandenheuvel. Updating a story from a few weeks ago, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval vetoed a bill to allow statewide distribution of raw milk. Under current law, local milk commissions are empowered to certify raw milk for sale within their own county. AB209, approved previously in the Nevada House and Senate, would have permitted distribution throughout the state. In announcing his veto, Sandoval cited the "significant public health risks" represented by consuming raw milk.

Celebrate birthdays with one-of-a-kind homemade cake FAMILY FEATURES — There’s something about a homemade birthday cake that sets it apart from any other dessert. It’s a simple and delicious way to make a sweet statement for that special someone and show how much you care. “Birthdays cakes like our Raspberry White Chocolate Cake are indulgent celebratory centerpieces,” said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. “And, while this recipe may look complex, it’s surprisingly easy to prepare. It starts with a storebought cake mix and is transformed into decadent layers of frosting, filling and flavor with a few simple additions.” Take the gesture of baking a cake one step further by personalizing it for the birthday guest of honor. Customizing for kids and adults alike is as easy as showcasing the honoree’s favorite flavors and colors or highlighting seasonal ingredients. Try these tips for turning your creation into a birthday delight: Personalize the cake topping by swapping in fresh blueberries, strawberries or blackberries. Or, remove the fruit topping altogether and add a decorative shimmer with a sprinkle of colored sugar. Add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar with 5 drops of food color in a plastic bag and knead it gently until the color is evenly distributed. Change up the filling color for a fresh look. Swap in blue food color for red in the raspberry filling to give this special cake a blue raspberry twist. For more festive birthday cake ideas, visit www.McCormick.com, www.Facebook.com/Mccormick Spice and the “Cakes to Crave” pinboard.

Section B Country Folks AUCTION SECTION and MARKET REPORTS USDA Trade Mission aims to create opportunities for U.S. agriculture in Turkey The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that Acting Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Michael Scuse is leading a mission to promote U.S. agricultural exports to Turkey. Representatives from Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania, as well as 20 U.S. companies are

participating. During the mission, the USDA delegation will travel to Istanbul and Ankara to learn about Turkey’s rapidly evolving market conditions and business environment — information that will enable businesses to develop export strategies for Turkey. Companies attending the Turkey trade

mission represent a wide variety of agricultural products including dry beans, fruit and nuts, agricultural machinery and more. “People around the world continue to demand U.S. food and agricultural products, boosting American businesses and supporting our rural communities,” said Scuse. “By

participating in this trade mission, U.S. agribusinesses will gain first-hand market information and meet with distributors, importers and other business contacts so they can position themselves to expand their presence in Turkey by promoting the quality, variety and reliability of U.S. food and agricultural products.”

With its rapidly developing economy and expanding middle class, Turkey is becoming a key market for U.S. food and agricultural products. U.S. agricultural exports to the country tripled over the last decade. In fiscal year 2012, two-way agricultural trade between the two countries reached more than $2.4 billion,

with U.S. exports accounting for more than 75 percent of the total — a significant contribution to the U.S. agricultural trade surplus. Turkey is also the second-largest country participant (behind South Korea) in USDA’s GSM102 program, which provides credit guarantees to encourage financing of commercial exports of U.S. agricultural products while providing competitive credit terms to buyers. In FY 2012, GSM-102 supported sales of approximately $700 million in agricultural commodities to Turkey, including 70 percent of all U.S. soybean and soybean meal exports to Turkey and 35 percent of all cotton. This trade mission is the first major USDA agricultural trade mission this year for U.S. companies. Successful trade missions to China and Russia were held in 2012.

New dairy heifer synchronization protocol sheet now available The Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) is pleased to in-

troduce the dairy heifer synchronization protocol sheet, which outlines es-

tablished synchronization protocols that may help producers improve heifer reproductive performance. In 2011 DCRC released the dairy cow synchronization protocol sheet to help veterinarians, consultants and dairy producers more effectively manage reproductive performance onfarm. “The heifer protocol sheet was created based on the latest research

and information available to the dairy industry,” says Dr. Todd Bilby, Chair of the DCRC Education Committee. “Our goal is to help veterinarians, industry professionals and producers make informed decisions related to heifer synchronization and reproductive programs.” The heifer protocol

sheet is intended to provide a foundation for discussion as veterinarians, consultants and dairy producers work together to make reproductive management decisions; the DCRC does not endorse one protocol over another, nor does DCRC endorse synchronization protocols over any of the other approaches to

dairy cattle reproduction. The protocol sheets are reviewed annually by representatives from the DCRC and new protocols will be included as they are validated in controlled studies. To access the heifer and lactating cow synchronization protocol sheets, visit www.dcrcouncil.org.

Coalition calls for strong farm safety net in Farm Bill WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the House prepares to consider the farm bill, a coalition of 50 commodity groups, lending organizations, and other agricultural stakeholders led by the Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau sent a letter expressing support for crop insurance and opposition to amendments that will limit its effectiveness.

The Farm Bill approved by the House Agriculture Committee strengthens and enhances crop insurance protection. The letter urges Congress to reject amendments that discourage producer participation or undermine private sector delivery. The message is signed by a diverse group of national and regional trade

that crop insurance underpins the rural economy, helping agricultural producers purchase needed supplies and supporting jobs throughout the countryside. One recent study led by University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers found that crop insurance saved 20,900 off-farm jobs and generated $2.2 billion in off-farm economic impact in the states of Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming alone during 2012. “Crop insurance is a key reason that farmers have been able to return to the fields and continue producing food, fiber,

feed and fuel this year.” CIRB Executive Vice President Michael Torrey said. “Actions that reduce participation in crop insurance are out of touch with the realities of modern-day farming and would pave the way for the return to inefficient and costly taxpayer-funded ad hoc disaster bills.” Farm bill amendments to make crop insurance protection unaffordable would cause producers to reduce their program participation, resulting in greater financial disruption in agriculture, increased government costs, a higher risk pool

of insured producers, and increased premium rates. Further cuts to crop insurance delivery threaten the private sector’s ability to service producers, especially those in high risk states. These harmful outcomes would ultimately undermine farmers, consumers, and the American economy. CIRB will continue to actively work to ensure that the crop insurance and reinsurance community’s voice is heard in D.C.
