February 24, 2020 Analee Doris Butikofer was born on January 1st, 2017 in Atlanta, GA and placed in her parents’ loving arms on March 1st, 2017. After a short series of minor illnesses, her body simply couldn’t hold on anymore. She ran into Jesus’ arms on February 24th, 2020 at 5:26pm. Her birth and life were full of challenges, pain, and struggle, but she was a fighter and achieved far more than doctors imagined she would. Analee never talked, but she communicated well with her family, particularly her mommy. She could not walk, run, or play, but she had a rich life anyway and filled a crucial role in her world. The void she leaves is huge, and the grief defies words. Our comfort as her family is that we know SHE IS WITH JESUS in Heaven and has a PERFECT BODY now. There will be no more needles, suctioning, nebulizer treatments, tube feedings, belly aches, ER visits, or hospital stays. All is GLORY! Our family that’s left--Reuben, Judi, Kinza, and Kevin--eagerly await joining her someday, and it is our desire that Analee’s life inspires everyone to search their hearts and make sure they are ready to meet Jesus.

Agriculture and the Economy (Metro Creative Services) Though it’s easy to look at the tech industry and think this increasingly influential sector is what makes the world go round, something closer to the very core of the Earth may be what’s driving your economy. The agricultural sector plays a strategic role in a nation’s economic development and prosperity. From the earliest days, agriculture has been heralded as playing a crucial role in North American culture. Farmers who grow produce and raise livestock for meats and other products have long exemplified what it means to work hard and take initiatives to be self-sufficient. The symbiotic nature of agriculture and the economy is noticeable when examining the ups and downs of each. This is because food production and the potential of agriculture extends beyond the fields and local food stands. These resources impact supply chains and other markets. A strong agriculture base influences other employment sectors like food manufacturing, biotechnology, hospitality, machinery building, and much more, while a weak agriculture can adversely affect those sectors.

While it can be difficult for residents of developed nations to visualize agriculture’s effect, one only needs to turn to impoverished and developing nations to see just how big an impact agriculture can have on an economy. Agriculture provides food and raw materials, eventually creating demand for goods produced in non-agricultural sectors. Also, food provides nutrition that can serve as the foundation of a healthy nation. Earning a living in agriculture strengthens purchasing power, which fuels other markets. Eventually, farming can pave the way for development, including roads, markets, shipping services, exporting, and many other sectors. Agriculture is an important economic building block. An especially important sector, the agricultural industry, when supported, can contribute greatly to sustained economic growth.

Technology has changed agriculture in myriad ways. The methods farmers employ to produce food and improve the efficiency of their operations has changed as technology has evolved. One of the more noticeable changes that’s hard to miss on modern farms is the use of agricultural drones. Drones have been around for decades. Sometimes referred to as “unmanned aerial vehicles,” or “UAVs,” drones can be utilized in ways that can save farmers money and protect the planet. • Monitor crops: According to senseFly, the commercial drone subsidiary of Parrot Group, drones can help farmers effectively monitor their crops. With a drone flying overhead, farmers can spot and quickly identify issues affecting their crops before those issues escalate into something larger. • Soil analysis: Another potential benefit of agricultural drones highlights their role in analyzing soil. Agricultural drones utilize complex mapping functions to gather data about the soil, including areas where it might be stressed. That enables farmers to develop accurate soil samples that can be used to guide decisions in regard to irrigation and fertilization.

vegetable production systems that often rely on irrigation. “Precipitation records are more readily available over broader regions than groundwater records, and precipitation data can fill gaps at very low cost.” The new approach also got negative confirmation. The wells showing the relationship were fairly shallow, with good connections to the surface. In southeast Wisconsin, where a layer of shale separates the upper and lower aquifers, the algorithm does not work, Smail says. “That helps confirm that the model predicts what we hoped to predict.” Perhaps the most curious aspect of the study was what the model did not explain. The material in the aquifer – whether porous sand and gravel or more resistant deep sandstone — did not affect the discovered relationship. “It’s counter-intuitive and something future research could help us better understand,” says Smail, who also works in the Bureau of Drinking Water and Groundwater at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. However, the curiosity carries a benefit, since it’s apparently not necessary to know much about an aquifer in order to see how precipitation is affecting water levels. Changes in land cover and regional water extraction are difficult to predict and document, so having an algorithm that looks only at the commonly tracked precipitation levels can be a big advantage, says Smail. In their study, Smail and colleagues wrote that

The study looked at long-term data on groundwater levels for 90 Wisconsin wells, taken from the U.S. Geologic Survey and the Wisconsin Geologic and Natural History Survey. Weather history came from the National Weather Service. Using the new system, 54 percent of the wells had moderate to high correlation with precipitation and groundwater level, says Smail, a significant improvement over previous efforts. The need to understand how weather affects groundwater in Wisconsin is underscored by record summer deluges and groundwater high enough to harm farms, homes and roads. In many parts of the state, groundwater is at record levels; evident in fields that remain flooded month after month. This stands in dramatic contrast to widespread concerns seven to 10 years ago about low water and “dying lakes.” Although rainfall and snow obviously contribute most or all water to an aquifer, “efforts to make this linkage have been problematic,” says Smail. “Rainfall is variable; it can be wet one year and dry the next, so rainfall numbers do not directly tell us what we need to know. But the water levels in aquifers levels have a memory. We just needed to figure out long that memory is.” “The new part here is the ability to use precipitation as a proxy – as a stand-in — instead of going out and measuring groundwater level,” says study co-author Jed Colquhoun, a professor of horticulture, who focuses on fruit and

(University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) After analyzing decades of data on groundwater and precipitation, scientists at University of Wisconsin– Madison and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have linked precipitation trends to groundwater levels in monitoring wells in Wisconsin. The connection seems obvious: more rain means higher water levels. The traditional starting point for understanding water level variation requires knowledge of factors such as aquifer properties, land use, and the amount of water pumped out. However, in the Journal of Hydrology on Nov. 15, 2019, Robert Smail, a recent UW–Madison Ph.D., revealed a method to connect precipitation records and changes in the groundwater level that focused solely on two numbers: • precipitation over the past month, and • average monthly rainfall over the past 60 months. The new analysis is all about context, Smail says. “If we are interested in how groundwater levels respond to rainfall,” he says, “we don’t care what the average monthly rainfall has been in Wisconsin over the past 100 years. Instead, we found that it’s best to compare last month to the average over the previous five years.” Thus if the monthly average over the past five years was 2.5 inches, a 3-inch month would be expected to raise the groundwater, while a 2-inch month would lower it.

(Metro Creative Services) Modern industry is driven by technology. Advancements in technology have changed how business is conducted, with some industries undergoing dramatic changes since the dawn of the 21st century. While agriculture might not be the first industry people think of when reflecting on the changing nature of industry, The National Institute of Food and Agriculture notes that modern farms are vastly different than those from a few decades ago. Farmers have long relied on technology to make their operations as efficient, productive and profitable as possible. Precision agriculture, which refers to technological advances designed to propel agriculture into the modern, computerized and information-based world, is helping the agricultural sector become more profitable and efficient while also improving safety and making agriculture more eco-friendly. In addition, the NIFA notes that the modern agricultural industry employs technology such as robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images, and global positioning systems. If it sounds complicated, thatÕs because it is. For example, modern sensors can detect soil conditions, potentially producing hundreds of readings per second. These sensors help farmers know the best possible time to plant seeds so they can reach their full potential. That improves both the efficiency of modern farms as well as their output. The NIFA also notes that agricultural tech-

nology has reduced waste. For instance, thanks to agricultural technology, farmers no longer have to apply water, fertilizers and pesticides uniformly across entire fields. Technology has shown that farmers can simply target specific areas or even treat individual plants differently. That saves time and allows farmers to use only minimal quantities of water, fertilizer and pesticides. In addition, according to the NIFA, em-

ploying agricultural technology in this fashion leads to higher crop productivity and reduces runoff of chemicals into rivers and groundwater, thereby reducing the farm’s impact on local ecosystems. Modern farms are technological marvels where various technologies are being employed to produce crops more efficiently and safely than ever before.

(Family Features) From the food on your table to the clothes on your back, agriculture provides a variety of things you eat, wear and use daily. Those items don't magically arrive at the store or appear in your home, however. Each American farmer feeds about 165 people, according to the Agriculture Council of America, an organization comprised of leaders in the agriculture, food and fiber communities dedicated to increasing public awareness of agriculture's role in modern society. Learning more about the industry can allow individuals to make more informed choices about everything from their diets to legislation. In honor of the 47th annual National Ag Day with the theme "Food Brings Everyone to the Table," consider these activities that can help you learn more about how the agriculture industry impacts daily life. Make a Farm-to-Table Meal Making a meal together is an easy activity for spending quality time with your entire family, but you can turn it into a learning experience and an opportunity to talk about where food comes from by combining seasonal produce like asparagus, peas, broccoli, oranges and lemons with ingredients your state is known for such as pork, apples, almonds, beef or corn, for example. Research Agricultural Issues From climate change and protecting air, soil and water to feeding a growing global population and using technology to improve food pro-

duction, there are a variety of issues facing the agriculture industry. To be more aware of what the future may hold, consider making yourself more familiar with some of the challenges farmers face. Consider Agricultural Careers For students and young adults considering their futures, joining the 22 million people who work in agriculture-related fields can be a rewarding pursuit. While the most obvious careers in agriculture are directly related to the farm or ranch, today's agriculture offers more than 200 careers from research and engineering to food science, landscape architecture, urban planning and more. Tour a Local Farm or Dairy Taking a tour of a farm or dairy (or both) can provide a better understanding of how food and fiber products are produced and the role agriculture plays in producing them. Make it a group outing with friends or family to help more people see the process food goes through from production to sitting on store shelves. Contact Legislators in Support of Farm and Food Initiatives The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 created reform for United States Department of Agriculture programs through 2023. To get more hands-on, you can contact your legislators to show support for farming initiatives like local FFA and 4-H programs as well as those that can help improve opportunities for farmland leasing, subsidies, urban gardening, food


hubs and other ag-focused resources and operations. Visit a Farmers Market Open seasonally, farmers markets can provide a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with your food and the people who grow it. Prices are usually competitive with traditional grocery stores and oftentimes better, plus some markets offer free samples as well as music and games so you can make an event out of picking up some fresh produce to use in family meals. Volunteer at a Community Garden Many cities and neighborhoods, even those in more urban areas, provide plots of land community members can use to grow food for themselves or to donate within the community. Consider setting aside some time each week to give back by cleaning out flower beds, laying mulch or planting flowers and crops in the designated areas.

Celebrate Agriculture 7 Ag-Focused Ways to Get Involved

(University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) Sustainable dairy project finds ways to lower emissions while increasing profits In 2013, the $10 million Dairy Coordinated Agricultural Project, or Dairy CAP, set out to assess the greenhouse gas contributions of the dairy industry and help farmers meet the industry’s goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2020 while maintaining or boosting profitability. Six years later, the project has wrapped up with a set of promising solutions. The Dairy CAP’s recommendations center on efficiency. Researchers found that a combination of improved animal husbandry, different feeding strategies, and better manure management could allow dairies to cut emissions by a third to almost half while producing more milk with less feed to ensure economic feasibility. CALS professors Matt Ruark and Molly Jahn led the Dairy CAP in collaboration with seven other universities, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (which funded the project), and the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, an industry-supported research group. The team issued its final report earlier this year. “I think there are three big takeaways,” says Ruark, a professor of soil science. “One, efficiency in milk production leads to reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Two, reductions in greenhouse gases can be achieved along with reductions in nutrient loss and increases

in economic returns. And three, dairy-based cropping systems can be adaptive to climate change.” Milk production emits greenhouse gases from three primary sources: methane produced in the rumen; emissions during manure storage and spreading; and the emissions associated with growing crops for feed. Methane — an inevitable byproduct of ruminant digestion — is 25 times more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere. Nitrous oxide, derived from manure and fertilizer applications, is 10 times more potent than methane. The Dairy CAP team tracked emissions at each of these stages. Experimental modifications were followed throughout their entire life cycle to identify how, for example, feed changes affected not just the production of milk and methane but manure emissions and the growth of crops fertilized with that manure. Experiments were conducted at the UW– Madison Dairy Cattle Center, the UW Arlington Agricultural Research Station, the USDA Dairy Forage Research Center in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, and at partner institutions. The experiments helped refine feed-to-manure computer models of emissions and economic returns for both 150- and 1,500-cow dairies. The benefits from using the best cow genetics, feed practices, manure handling, and cropping systems added up quickly. “If we implement these best management

New & Used Equipment

practices, we’re going to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 36% [for a 1,500-cow dairy],” says Ruark. “At the same time, we’re going to reduce nitrogen losses to groundwater by 41%. We’re going to reduce phosphorus losses to surface water by 52%. And we’re going to increase net return 20%.” Similar practices could drop greenhouse gas emissions by 46% for 150-cow dairies, the researchers found. One of the most effective ways to cut emissions is to use an anaerobic digester to convert the methane from stored manure into carbon dioxide. While this is an expensive solution, the costs could be partly offset by generating and selling electricity from burning the methane or converting it into compressed natural gas to fuel cars and trucks. Yet changing practices to cut emissions could be a tough sell as dairies continue to struggle through a years-long slump in milk prices, says agricultural and applied economics professor Mark Stephenson. An expert in dairy economics, Stephenson helped create a tool to evaluate alternative manure management practices for the Dairy CAP. Low milk prices are a major reason why 800 Wisconsin dairy farms have closed since August 2018. “One of the legs of sustainability is economic,” says Stephenson. “Just because you want to reduce greenhouse gases doesn’t mean that you can afford to employ the best practices.

The grant also provided funds for students to attend pre-college programs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “The Dairy CAP was a really exciting opportunity to work cooperatively with about 100 scientists all over the country,” says Carolyn Betz, the project manager and author of the final report.

ficiency gains are key to the adoption.” That efficiency stems from improving the conversion of feed into milk through feeding practices and dairy cow genetics. These best practices can reduce costs for farmers and emissions from milk production. Researchers also assembled recommendations to help farmers adapt to a warming climate, such as ways to predict the ventilation needed in a barn to keep cows cool. The project’s findings have been distributed through fact sheets published by the Division of Extension and on the Virtual Farm website hosted by The Pennsylvania State University. The site demonstrates the typical operations of both large and small dairy farms and ways that dairies can reduce their impact on the environment. The Dairy CAP also looked toward the next generation. Project leaders partnered with Milwaukee’s Vincent High School to help revive its original design as an agricultural school. The grant paid for agriculture outreach specialist Gail Kraus to join the school’s staff and help design a new agricultural curriculum with six specialties. “I had come to understand that to really enrich our campus environment we had to be active at the secondary and elementary level to open pipelines of students for college,” says Jahn, who initiated a relationship with the school eight years ago. The agricultural revival grew from teachers interested in teaching aquaculture and developed to include courses in the animal and plant sciences. Students were aided by an existing greenhouse and the addition of a menagerie of chickens, ducks, cows, and goats. They went on

The Benefits of Organic Foods

(Metro Creative Services) Raising backyard chickens has been a growing phenomenon for several years. Many cities have passed laws legalizing backyard chickens, encouraging many to raise chickens as a rewarding hobby. One of the biggest benefits to raising backyard chickens is that their eggs are fresher and often tastier than storebought varieties. Hens can lay one egg per day. Multiply that egg per hen, and breakfast is always available. Another benefit to chickens is they produce a natural fertilizer that can be used in gardens. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac” says chicken manure can be composted, aged and eventually added to the garden. In about six months, a person will accumulate about one cubic foot of manure per chicken. Egg shells and other compostable material can be added to create an even richer formula. Chickens also can help control bugs around the yard, offers the experts at Tractor Supply Company. Before investing in backyard chickens, people should determine if chickens will fit with their lifestyle. Costs and care are a big consideration. Each chick will cost anywhere between $3 to $5 a bird. Then there’s feed to consider. The most expensive item will likely be the coop. The experts at The

Page 11B - Richland Center Shopping News - Tuesday, March 3, 2020 •

Are Backyard Chickens Right For You? Happy Chicken Coop, a resource for raising chickens and starting coops, says handy men and women can build homemade coops, but ready-made ones will cost a few hundred dollars. The coop will need to offer around four square feet of space per chicken (or what’s recommended for the breed). Despite being seemingly independent birds, chickens need people to be active caregivers. They require feed and water daily. The chickens will need a caregiver while you vacation. People who are frequently away from home should reconsider chickens. Chickens also are prone to worms, parasites and lice. They need to have rear feathers trimmed to stay clean and sanitary, and they will require an area where they can “dust” and self-groom. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises not to cuddle and kiss chickens like pets because they can carry salmonella. Not every coop is completely varmint-proof, and some chickens may succumb to predators. Squeamish or sentimental folks may find chickens aren’t the right fit. Chickens require commitment and care that many people can provide. It is essential to do one’s homework to ensure that backyard chickens are a sound investment.

(Metro Creative Services) Many people subscribe to the notion that “everything is better with bacon.” Imagine being able to control the quality and flavor of pork products, and knowing just what went into producing delicious bacon? In an era of growing uncertainty about commercially produced food, many agriculturally inclined people are raising livestock right on their properties, and small-scale pig farms can be a successful venture. Despite pigs’ reputation as dirty animals, the animal resource PetHelpful indicates they are actually one of the cleanest farm animals. Pigs tend to wallow in mud only if they do not have proper shade and a clean, steady water supply to regulate their body temperature. Furthermore, giving pigs plenty of space to roam will enable them to keep dry, clean and cool. Pens should be large enough so pigs can sleep and eat on one end and use the other end for soiling. Pigs also are intelligent animals that will adapt to routine. This means it may be easier to care for pigs than some other farm animals. Even though pigs can grow to be quite large, they do not need to live on an expansive farm. Many pigs can live quite well on an acre if their pen and foraging areas are rotated periodically. Data from the past 50 years shows that today’s pig farms use less land and other resources to produce one pound of pork, according to the National Pork Board. Therefore, raising pigs can be a sustainable undertaking.

According to Mother Earth News, when selecting pig breeds for a pig farm startup, these are popular as lean-meat producers and shouldn’t be hard to find: Yorkshire, DurocJersey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Poland-China, Chester White and Tamworth. Choose sows (females) or barrows (castrated males) for the best-tasting meat. Also, keep in mind that pigs are social animals, and even though the average family will do just fine with one pig’s worth of meat, pigs do better if raised in pairs or more. Pigs need a varied diet to thrive. Diets should include grain, milk, fruits, vegetables, and

greens from pasture. Experts suggest novices ask a veterinarian or another pig farmer about feeding. A family garden or bartering with other families nearby for food materials can keep feeding costs minimal. Many pigs can be butchered by the age of six or seven months. After pigs reach that age, they begin to grow quite large and become a much larger investment of time and money. Pig farming can be a worthwhile venture. More in-depth information on raising pigs is available at introduction-to-raising-pigs/.
