Stukenholtz Laboratory Inc.

Celebrating 47 Years of Agricultural Testing

I

n 1970, there were no commercial soil and plant testing laboratories in Idaho. Farmers applied fertilizers based upon educated guesswork. Dr. Dale Stukenholtz and his wife Joyce saw an opportunity to build a business and started a soil and plant testing laboratory and field consulting service based in Twin Falls, Idaho. Dr. Stukenholtz had an unusually diverse background as an educator at the University of Nebraska, an agronomist in the fertilizer industry, and a farmer, and he saw a need for more modern fertilizer recommendations to produce greater yields at less cost. His clients were the growers, so he could make unbiased recommendations that maximized economic return to the farmer. After extensive field research, he developed these improved fertilizer recommendations that quickly became popular with growers and form the basis for nearly all fertilizer applications in the intermountain west area. Stukenholtz Laboratory clients include growers from all neighboring states and several foreign countries including Australia, Canada, Egypt, Russia, Mexico and New Zealand. Stukenholtz Laboratory provides 1 to 2 day service, including picking up and delivery time, across Southern Idaho from St. Anthony and Grace to Parma and Homedale. Results can be delivered, mailed, faxed, or pulled from the Laboratory’s webpage: www.stukenholtz.com. To improve their service, Joyce and Dale Stukenholtz expanded the laboratory 20 years ago, installed the latest in computerized instrumentation and quality control, and made it the most modern and well equipped agricultural laboratory in their market area. Critical to the success of Idaho’s most efficient laboratory and largest field consulting firm has been its personnel. Dr. Stukenholtz has had a PhD in Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition since 1964 and his son and Laboratory Manager Paul has nearly completed his own. Consulting agronomists include

J.P. Kruckeberg of American Falls, a 38 year veteran of field consulting and the most successful single agronomist in the state, and Bart Kunz. The Laboratory and office staff are equally good.

Analysis room at Stukenholtz Laboratory Inc.

Stukenholtz Laboratory continues with research and improvement. In conjunction with the Idaho Crop Production Association and University of Idaho CFEP research project, Stukenholtz Laboratory has helped to ensure that fertilizer recommendations in Idaho are the most cost efficient possible and produce the maximum economic yield while protecting the environment. Stukenholtz Laboratory personnel have conducted field research on over 40 different products and continue to be the experts at “cutting edge� agricultural technology. As we end our first 46 years of business and begin our next, we would like to thank our current and former employees for their dedicated work and our customers and clients for their years of support. e

Ubly Bean Knife and Ubly Peanut Digger Blades Give You the Advant-EDGE!

H

undreds of hard edible bean farmers have been taking advantage of the Ubly bean knife for over sixty years. Attention bean, seed and organic farmers While maintaining the highest standard of quality, Ubly bean knives are still the best way to cut the tap roots and get a higher quality bean while producing fluffier windrows, reducing labor, reducing stones and dirt in windrows, and aiding in your combine’s overall performance. There has been some speculation about the acceptability of the direct harvest system due to the high losses of beans, therefore keep using the Ubly Bean Knife for the best possible cut and quality for your money. Do what hundreds have already done. Make Ubly Your Advant-EDGE.

Peanut farmers rejoice! Ubly Peanut Digger Blade Manufacturing, Inc., a subsidiary of Ubly Bean Knife Mfg., Inc., received a patent for the Ubly Lifting Fingers, stainless steel lifting fingers that are flat and curved upward to better guide peanuts up on to the top of the elevator during the digging process. Used with their patented Ubly Digger blades, which have a thin, hard-faced edge to stay sharp and always cut the tap root, the lifting fingers and the smaller diameter Ubly 6-inch Bottom Elevator Idler Wheels raise the peanuts without turbulence and in a smooth, uniform ribbon to the top of the elevator. For more information, please call 1-888-723-3244 or visit our website at www.ublybean.com e

Corn Stalk Guide By Kaler Farms “I don’t want to lose my corn” is the response Joel Kaler of Kaler Farms gives when asked if he has done a “test” study to see how much corn he is losing. “That would be the point…I don’t want to lose any, so I watched the problem and made the Corn Stalk Guide. It started just for my farming operation, but others wanted them so we started making them.” The aftermarket attachment is placed on the snout above the front of the idler chain and sprocket to guide the corn to pass smoothly and to be grabbed more efficiently. The corn stalk is not being jerked, shook, or flung. The farmer now has his corn safely in the combine rather than on the ground. Plus, the Corn Stalk Guide is meant to be used in both standing corn and lean-

ing corn…..it helps move the stalks into rows more smoothly. Kaler has also found that because of the material the Guides are made from, the poly snouts are not wearing as fast. “More money saved,” indicated Joel. In addition to those savings, it has also helped save the snouts from bending and cracking because it will add some strength. These American-made products are an added benefit to the agricultural world. Kaler Farms will be attending several farm shows in the Corn Belt area this summer. The Kalers encourage you to stop and visit with them. If interested in the Corn Stalk Guide, contact Kaler Farms at kalerfarms@gmail.com or visit their website, www.kalerfarms.com  e

Cover Crops and Rotational Grazing

T

he use of grass-based paddocks for rotational grazing is a well-established practice, and a host of companies have developed forage grass varieties to meet the needs of beef producers who use this system. With the growing interest in cover cropping, however, livestock producers are wondering how cover crops might fit into rotational grazing systems.

“The short answer is—they can work in some situations,” says Mac Ehrhardt, owner and manager of Albert Lea Seed. “One of the easiest and best fits comes with the use of winter grains as cover crops. For example, if a farmer were to plant winter rye or winter triticale in the fall after soybeans, those grasses would be the first plants to green up in the spring and would be available for early grazing. After grazing, the grasses could be worked into the soil and soybeans planted.” Ehrhardt notes that farmers are also experimenting with other cover cropping techniques. Some are flying a mixture of winter rye or annual rye grass, tillage radish and turnips or forage rape into growing corn and soybean crops. Then, after the crops are harvested, the cover crop mixture can be grazed well into the fall. Using winter rye in the mix extends grazing even further, as it is extremely frost tolerant. “This approach has generally worked better with soybeans,” states Ehrhardt, “because they are harvested earlier and are lower growing, which enables the grass and brassica mixture to attain more growth prior to soybean harvest.” Ehrhardt adds that another option exists for farmers who plant a small grain and take it to yield. “They have a great opportunity to put in a cover crop after their small grain is harvested in July,” he says. “Good choices for grazing late into the fall include winter rye or winter triticale, plus a brassica like radish, turnip, forage rape or even field peas. Of the brassicas, turnips are probably the most productive for beef production, and there are specialty grazing turnips which can be used in that system. Winter rye and winter triticale may also overwinter and be available for grazing once again in the spring.” So, can cover crops fit into a rotational grazing system? The answer is yes, illustrated by these three different ways that cover crops are currently being integrated into those systems.  e

FARM FOR UNDER 3%!

B

argain interest rates may be the optimistic news for farmers this year, as both long and short term rates remain at historic lows. But while many lenders cling to old Prime Plus formulas for establishing loan rates, others prove they can do better. “Farmers can borrow substantially under 3%, and close to half of what Prime plus 1% formulas are,” according to AGRIfinancial Services, a nationwide lender focusing exclusively on farm lending. Headquartered in Louisville, KY, the company provides an alternative way to borrowing for operating needs, as well as long term fixed rate mortgages. “It’s like a home equity loan, but for farmers,” they say. AGRIfinancial Services works with California and western producers in all lines of the industry. Instead of crops or machinery for collateral, farmers use their real estate to back the loan. The resulting benefits pay off with customers. Not only is the loan rate very low, but the product also offers a 10-year commitment where producers do not have to come in every year, or 3 years to renew the line. Additionally, the loan can be used for farm and business needs – not strictly operating expenses. The loan is priced based on a variable, LIBOR-indexed rate, but farmers can also choose to lock pieces of their debt to a fixed rate if they desire, he explained. All is done inside the loan, without the need for refinancing. It’s quite an amazing loan product and an example of what nontraditional lenders like AFS have been bringing to the market. The company is owned by CGB Enterprises, a major buyer and shipper of farm commodities. e

are also available. Grain temperature history reports are also available to be printed out. Each individual bin can be set to specialized temperature parameters to accommodate various crops. Instead of taking 2 to 3 hours for a large operation, reading temperatures can now be done in minutes! This wireless system utilizes line of sight (up to 1 mile) radio communication between the bins and the base transmitter to monitor temperatures from TSGC temperature cables (as well as grain depth). It requires power at the transmitter location on the bin, and may be run either manually or automatically, locally or over the network/Internet, for anytime, anywhere monitoring. Another option is the GrainTRAC remote bin monitoring system. This system utilizes a cell phone modem to transfer data from the TSGC temperature cables to an internet website, www.wagnet.net. The producer is given a user name and a password to ensure privacy. Once logged onto the website, the producer can view a graphical display of his temperatures or a numerical display. Temperature parameters (minimum and maximum) can be set for each bin, as well as rate of rise temperature over a designated time period. Temperature history reports are available for print out. Options include remote fan start/stop and a weather station with features such as temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and rain measurement. Alerts are sent via email or text message. The requirements for the GrainTRAC system include temperature cables, cell phone coverage at the bin site and electrical power. An annual access fee to the internet website is charged (a low per year minimum). Convenience is the selling point of this system because a producer can monitor his grain temperatures from anywhere via the Internet. Either of these wireless systems will save you time and money, while providing peace of mind about the true condition of your grain. Knowing your grain temperatures, while watching for changes, is the only safe way to monitor the condition of your grain. TSGC, Inc. is one of the largest suppliers of grain temperature monitoring equipment in the world. Headquartered in America’s Heartland, our administration, fabricating, sales and service divisions are located in Spirit Lake, Iowa. We have an extensive network of contractors representing our products and services nationwide and in over forty countries. TSGC, Inc. is dedicated to serving you.

C & R Supply, Inc.

Birth of a Sprayer…the Family Expands

A

fter carefully listening to customers who were disappointed with the performance or lack of features in ATV sprayers available, C & R Supply set out to design a series, or family of sprayers to meet their needs. The family began with the EZ ATV Sprayer which features a unique tank design that was created with input from customers and ATV manufacturers. Using this input, and keeping the operator in mind the EZ ATV Sprayer was designed for ease of operation, functional ability and safety. The design was a success! This unit has been in demand since 1998 and continues to hold a strong presence in the market today. The EZ ATV Sprayer has a sleek design which brings the weight forward and more to a center of gravity for better machine balance. Allowing the legs of the tank to wrap around the fenders of the ATV gives the sprayers dual sumps maximum drainage and the ability to run on side hills without losing its prime. The pump, strainer, and main shut off are mounted underneath the tank in a protected cavity, which also serves as a dual slosh baffle. The top of the tank is designed with a fill catch area to prevent chemical from getting on the operator. The EZ Sprayer is fitted with a 4 gpm Shurflo Pump and a quality Tee-Jet trigger style handgun in the convenient control panel at your side. All brackets and boomless nozzle or boom accessories are attached to the tank for quick and easy mounting. The EZ ATV Sprayer has several different options and accessories to meet your needs.

was built with only the highest of quality components. The Slide In features a 60 gal tank, left and right electric controls with wiring harness, a Shurflo 4gm by pass pump, and Boominator nozzles which can spray a width of up to 30 feet. An 8 inch hand gun from Tee Jet with adjustable tip for hand spraying is also included. The Slide In sprayer has options and accessories available to meet the needs of your operation including a convenient retractable hose reel add on and additional boom options. C & R Supply, Inc. is a distributor and manufacturer of agricultural and roadside spray equipment located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. For over 40 years, C & R Supply, Inc. has been a leader in the distribution and servicing of many quality products from Raven Industries, Spraying Systems, Banjo, and more. They also lead the way in designing and manufacturing new and advanced products as their customer needs change. This family of quality sprayers began with the introduction of the C & R Foam Marker and Spot Sprayer which progressed to the units we are featuring here today. C & R is a provider of precision ag products such as GPS guidance systems, variable rate controllers, mapping, steering assist systems, and chemical injection units. C & R Supply prides themselves on having the knowledge and experience to continually advance their product line to keep up with ever changing technology in a way that helps producers maximize their output.  e

Tired of Cheap, Throw-Away ATV Sprayers? The Sport Utility Sprayer

FEATURES:

- Left and right electric controls with wiring harness standard - Shurflo bypass pump - Boominator nozzles spray a width of 30 feet - Includes hand gun with adjustable nozzle

60 Gallon Tank mounted on a powder coated frame for the bed of your sport utility vehicle As time went on customers began seeing a need in their operation for UTV’s. C & R Supply responded by expanding their family of sprayers. The UTV sprayer was born and it was named the C & R Slide In after its ability to be easily slid on and off the bed of the UTV as needed. The sprayer is mounted on a powder coated frame which allows the unit to be transferred as a single piece of equipment. This sprayer, like its elder sibling, www.farmranchdairy.com

SweetPro Feeds of Walhalla, ND

S

weetPro Feeds of Walhalla, ND produces Vitamin, Mineral and Digestive Aid supplements for livestock and has pioneered the use of Distillers Grains (DDGS) on rangeland. Dried Distillers Grains (from ethanol production) as a carrier for supplementation provides significant benefits to the Rancher, the Feeder, the Consumer and the Land itself.

Although used in feedlot and dairy settings, until SweetPro’s patented non-molasses DDG block became available for rangeland applications, the benefits of feeding Distillers Grains were unavailable to these non-bunk fed livestock. Historically many small farmers steeped barley before feeding it to their animals. While this practice faded due to various

20 • Western Farm, Ranch and Dairy

influences such as economies of scale, elements relating to this fermentation of grain have been refined by SweetPro Feeds. SweetPro has overcome the historic mechanical limitations and taken the science to new levels with stabilization for open range feeding, organic complexed trace minerals, four classes of viable digestive enzymes and prebiotics to deliver maximum performance potential. Feed efficiency is improved by 25%. Additionally, a blend of cereal grains (wheat, oats, and barley malt) plus flax are used in the proprietary fermented blend additive, “ProBiotein.” This assures that the most complementary amino acid profile is available. SweetPro complements a forage based diet by NOT using starch or sugar (which can create a rumen Negative Associative Effect) as the main ingredient. SweetPro blocks also produce a unique dynamic which both influences the total protein and the type of protein available to the animal. Total protein is improved, not just from the protein in the supplement, but also from the rumen microbes (single cell protein). SweetPro blocks contain three classes of prebiotics to feed and keep robust these rumen microbial populations. The better the microbials perform, the more single-cell protein is available to the cow when the microbe’s short life-cycle ends. The other protein dynamic in SweetPro is high bypass protein. This is protein not used in the rumen but available directly by the animal. This is most important during the two key times when the cow’s protein demands are greatest, late stage pregnancy and peak milking demand. When these protein and fiber oriented energy benefits are combined with SweetPro’s strong vitamin and mineral package, ranchers have a solid tool to help reclaim the losses they’d otherwise absorb when forage is poor. Even poor quality forages can be fully utilized with pastures stretched or more animals run on the same ground. SweetPro benefits the Rancher by improving feed efficiency 25% while promoting better herd health and fertility. Heavier “growthy” calves can be expected at weaning along with labor and fuel savings (blocks are only placed out every 10 days). It also benefits the producer by providing new options for grass finishing and putting more “Pounds on Pasture” per day than older means of vitamin and mineral supplementation. SweetPro products also help the Feeder by allowing them to bring in healthier and heavier calves. These calves need only half the time to finish as in years past. With 25% improved feed efficiency, 400 to 800 pounds less corn is needed in the finishing process. The Consumer benefits through a healthier meat that has much better mineral deposition and a better taste. The Land itself also gains advantages. With 25% improved feed efficiency, stress on pastures is reduced while the more efficient digestion allows for an even spread of softer stools that are much easier for dung beetles to work into the soils. Soil fertility is increased markedly over only a few years time. SweetPro Feeds’ combination of a healthy and cost-efficient vitamin and mineral delivery system along with a 25% improvement in forage feed efficiency has impacted ranching, feeding and the nation positively. www.sweetpro.com e

“Money-Saving Mowers: A Quicker Cut with less Gas & Emissions.” It’s the end of a long week, the sun is starting to set and you realize that you still have to mow. Do you hop on your riding mower and settle in for a couple more hours of work? Or do you call it a day and push the job to tomorrow?

“What normally took me over 7 hours, now takes me about one hour,” said Joe Saggars of Indiana. “Thanks to ProMow ® I now have one of the best looking lawns in Noble County.”

Over 20 years ago, we encountered the same problem, too, and didn’t like either option. That’s why we created our own solution called Pro-Mow®, Inc. Starting in 1994, our inventor, Doug Short, began arranging seven reels in a framing system to pull behind his lawn mower tractor. “In the past, mowing my large lot would fill up my entire evening when I used my riding mower,” said Short. “By creating this framing system, mowing went from a two-hour task to 30 minutes.” He then patented the framing system and began selling locally, nationally, and now internationally.

With the national and international success of the ProMow® reel mowers, we are always striving to help our customers achieve a cleaner cut in a fraction of the time. “Our mission is to allow people to save time and money, while providing the best product for a beautiful lawn,” said Jared Davis, President of ProMow®, Inc.

ProMow® reel mowers are mowers that have blades which spin vertically (or north to south). This allows the grass to be cut in a scissor-like action rather than a whipping-like cut from a rotary mower that results in jagged edges. Typically mowers also leave piles of grass clippings that need to be raked and bagged afterwards. ProMow® reel mowers, however, evenly disperse the grass clippings, which contain essential nutrients needed for your yard. These combined effects result in greener grass and healthier turf.

This year, ProMow® turns 23 years old and has a long life ahead. “We are bringing new products to the market that we know our customers are going to love based on their comments and suggestions,” says Davis. “This year, we created a whole new reel, which will help cut Bermuda and Zoysia grass better. We are also offering a bolt on sprayer kit so that our customers can now spray pesky weeds at the same time.” ProMow® has also added a ball hitch adaptor to the lineup for an easier hookup. “Money-Saving Mowers: A Quicker Cut with less Gas & Emissions.”
