Trade aid to farmers

Opioids a rural epidemic By James Henry


NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — The man picked up a hammer and then smashed it down on his hand. The woman unbuckled her seatbelt and then drove her car at full throttle into a dumpster. They hurt themselves with the sole intent of acquiring prescription pain medications. These true stories shared by Matt Niswander at the Young Farmers and Ag Professionals Conference in Noblesville depict just how devastating the opioid epidemic in rural America has become. Niswander is a first-generation cattleman. He and his wife, Colbie, and their three children raise Black Angus cattle at Niswander Farms, a U.S. Department of Agriculture-certified direct-to-consumer beef cattle farm. He previously worked in emergency medicine and now works full-time in his community as a family nurse practitioner, the owner of Niswander Family Medicine, a hometown, primary care family medical practice in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.

What are opioids?

Opioid is a term used for the entire family of opiate drugs, including natural, synthetic and semi-synthetic. These drugs are chemically related and interact with opioid receptors on nerve cells in the body and brain, creating a feeling of euphoria. Opioid drugs include: Buprenorphine Codeine Fentanyl Heroin Hydrocodone

Hydromorphone Meperidine Methadone Morphine Oxycodone

AUSTIN, Texas — He might have exited the stage, as he has before, to the strains of “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by the Rolling Stones, but President Donald Trump was able to take a victory lap for some promises kept to U.S. farmers and ranchers. “We did it. We did it,” Trump celebrated with the opening words of his address to members of the American Farm Bureau Federation at its annual meeting in Austin. Trump was able to celebrate not only the completion of Phase 1 of a trade deal with China, but the passage by the House and Senate of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement. “I’ve told everybody you’ve got to buy a lot of land and you’ve got to get bigger tractors now because we did a great deal with China, great for our country. We’re going to

“I’ve told everybody you’ve got to buy a lot of land and you’ve got to get bigger tractors now because we did a great deal with China, great for our country. We’re going to sell them the greatest product you’ve ever seen.” President Donald Trump sell them the greatest product you’ve ever seen,” Trump said. The president would sign the USMCA into law after he spoke to the gathered Farm Bureau members, but he pointed out the benefits for the nation’s ag producers. “It will massively boost exports for farmers, ranchers, growers and agricultural producers from north to south and from sea to shining sea. It also has tremendous im-

pacts on manufacturers and all of the other things good for everybody,” he said. Trump reminded the audience of the trade aid program, the Market Facilitation Program, that has resulted in $28 billion being distributed to farmers and ranchers impacted by tariffs on U.S. agricultural products going into China. He also addressed criticism that the largest farms were the primary recipients of the payments. “We’re getting that money, Sonny, to the small farmers, also. There were some statements, big farmers, no, we get them to the small farmers, we get them to everybody, big farmers, small farmers,” said Trump, referencing Sonny Perdue, U.S. secretary of agriculture, who traveled with Trump and a handful of Republican federal and state lawmakers to the Farm Bureau convention. Trump gained a laugh from the audience when he discussed the MFP payment formula. See TRUMP, Page A4

Promoting ag education Lt. gov. advocates opportunities in rural, urban areas By Jeannine Otto


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Whether you live in rural Illinois or in one of the state’s urban areas, one thing unites all Illinoisans — food. “Food connects us all, whether it’s at the dinner table or at the local market,” said Illinois Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton, as she spoke to the members of the Illinois Pork Producers Association at the annual Illinois Pork Expo in Springfield. Stratton addressed the members during their annual meeting. Food is a common bond, and those who produce it can help bring together the urban and rural parts of the state, the 48th lieutenant governor told IPPA members. “In so many ways, I consider you all to be such important

Stratton said it is important that young people throughout the state have opportunities to have agricultural education and explore the job opportunities in agriculture. “How do we make sure our young people are better educated? When we think about education, we have to think about agricultural education and making sure that young people, not only in our agricultural communities, understand AGRINEWS PHOTO/JEANNINE OTTO and have access to and expoIllinois Lt.

WASHINGTON — The third and final tranche of the 2019 Market Facilitation Program payments are being issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The final payment represents the remaining 25% of the total county per-acre calculation. The first tranche was comprised of the higher of either 50% of a producer’s calculated county per-acre payment or $15 per acre, which may reduce potential Perdue payments to be made in tranche three. The second tranche was 25% of the total payment expected. Of the $16 billion authorized for the program by President Donald Trump, $14.5 billion was aimed at assisting farmers suffering from damage due to trade retaliation by foreign nations. The funding was authorized under the Commodity Credit Corp. Charter Act and administered by the Farm Service Agency. The program’s remaining funding was to implement a $1.4 billion Food Purchase and Distribution Program to purchase surplus commodities affected by trade retaliation. See AID, Page A2

ARC, PLC program sign-up due By Tom C. Doran


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The deadline to sign up for either the Agriculture Risk Coverage or the Price Loss Coverage program nears and farmers are encouraged not to wait until the last minute. “The clock is ticking. March 16 is the last day to make what is likely one of the most important business decisions you will make for your farming operation this year,” said Bill Graff, Illinois Graff Farm Service Agency executive director. “If you have not already visited your local FSA county office to make your election for either the ARC or the PLC program and to sign your annual enrollment contract, you should call and make your appointment now.” As of Feb. 6, 43,000 farms have signed up and 118,000 across the state are yet to enroll. “We’re getting down to the point that it’s literally becoming a math problem. We have to do over 4,500 contracts a day in Illinois through March 16. We did 10,000 contracts so far this week, but we really need to be doing closer to 15,000 contracts a week, and the more the farmers delay the bigger the math problem becomes. You can only do so many contracts an hour; you can only do so many a day,” Graff said. See SIGN-UP, Page A4

“I would love to see programs like FFA be expanded so we could have more young people who are interested in this huge industry,” she said.

Trade deals don’t impress markets By Tom C. Doran


GIFFORD, Ill. — Hope that the trade agreements announced in January would bolster the anemic commodity market were quickly quelled, leaving trade-watchers scratching their heads. President Donald Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He signed Phase 1 of a U.S.-China trade agreement Jan. 15. One day later, the U.S. Senate followed the House’s suit and approved the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. Trump signed USMCA into law Jan. 29, and the agreement is now up to Canada for ratification. Curt Kimmel, Bates Commodities owner and commodity broker, analyzed the market’s blasé reaction in an interview at the firm’s Midwest Ag Expo booth Jan. 29.

On-farm bin benefits Expand options and save money By Tom C. Doran


GIFFORD, Ill. — On-farm grain storage in Illinois and Indiana has increased the past 10 years. According to the U.S Department of Agriculture, onfarm storage has increased by 90 million bushels in Indiana to 860 million bushels and Illinois has seen a 50 million bushel jump to 1.48 billion bushels from Dec. 1, 2009, to Dec. 1, 2019. Phil Foster, owner of Foster’s Mechanics in Paxton, said during the Midwest Ag Expo farmers are installing or adding bins to avoid harvest downtime and have storage and marketing options. Poor field conditions extended the 2019 harvest, and there were just small windows of opportunities to get into the fields. When it was fit, the crop had higher than desired moisture content, forcing the need for drying and adding more cost at a time of low commodity prices. “On-farm storage and dryers provide an option where you don’t have to pay someone else for drying. You can save a lot of money by drying it yourself,” Foster said. There were reports of grain elevators shutting down early last fall because they were at capacity in the midst of harvest. “So, you have the downtime and you can’t do anything, it’s getting late in the season and you have to get things out. The weather turns and 25% of your corn is still out there in the field. The corn is going down and you’re losing yield every day it’s out there. Any way you can speed that harvest up is beneficial,” Foster continued. He added on-farm storage can also save in drying costs. “You can save a lot per bushel because if you try to dry we’ll say 1,000 bushels and it is 25% moisture, I think we figured that according to the elevator you come out with 840 bushels because it shrinks. That’s the on paper, and by the time you’re done you’ve pretty well paid $1,000 to have that dried down. So, if corn is down to $3.50 a bushel, you’re going to lose $1,000 off the top,” he said. “So, if you’re thinking it was going to be $3,500 you’re going to get for that semi load. Well, now that’s changed a lot. You’ll get $2,500 or a little less than that. “The normal rule of thumb is it would be half of what it would have cost you at the elevator. A lot of the cost just depends on where you’re at for natural gas, propane, power companies and how much you

I hear a lot of guys say you can save 20 cents, 30 cents per bushels, just depending on if the basis has gone up or whatever the price of the commodity is at the time. That can be very beneficial,” Foster said. There is also an eventual return on investment. “We don’t know how long that return is going to be. Is it going to be two years, is it going to be five years? A lot of it depends on your marketing, how much you have to dry and all of that. So, that’s what can affect your payback on whatever you put in. But it’s going to payback and then once you have it paid for, then it’s just that extra income that you’re getting from that,” Foster noted. DEMAND It’s obvious by the USDA data there has been an increased interest in both onfarm and off-farm storage expansion for several reasons. Yields have increased over 10 years, and elevators are adding on because they may not have the storage to meet the demand. Also, on-farm bins are aging and small. “Nobody wants to use them because you have this small bin and you have to carry this sweep in, and it has a 6-inch unload, it takes forever, it takes too much time to do what they need to do. They don’t have the time to deal with that. They have a 10,000 bushel bin onfarm and they’re just going to haul it to the elevator instead because they can dump it fast there and not worry about that penny-pinching,” Foster said. “I think now the way the markets are and everything, your return on a grain storage

system can payback and it can make you money and make it to where in these tight markets you can get more of your premium dollar out of it and get the most you can for what you’re raising.” New grain bins have features that are more efficient, safer and easier to use on-farm. “You have power sweeps in a grain bin. You don’t have to carry it in. You can get 10-inch unload and you can unload or load a bin, 4,000 bushels an hour, or you can get 6,000 bushels an hour. If you get 6,000 bushels an hour that’s loading a semi in 10 minutes, and it used to be 45 minutes with a six-inch auger. That’s a big difference and you can just keep the semis coming. There are a lot of benefits,” Foster said. Wintertime is an ideal time to order grain bins and grain equipment as companies are offering winter discounts and farmers can lock in those deals and have a system in place for next fall. WHAT’S NEW Foster’s highlighted two new features during the Midwest Ag Expo, the Sukup Mixedflow Dryer and Sukup Paddle Sweepway. The Mixed-flow Dryer combines the grain quality of a mixed-flow dryer with the vacuum-cooling efficiency of a tower dryer. The result is high test-weight grain while burning less fuel per bushel dried. Maintenance is also reduced with mixed flow dryers because there are no screens that need to be cleaned on cool, damp days to maintain capacity and efficiency. The Paddle Sweepway is a new safety feature for grain bins compared to a typical auger. It’s a safe option to fully clean out a grain bin. This upgrade can be added to new or retrofitted to any existing Sweepway or U-Trough and Power Sweep for both drag conveyors and loop systems.

Does the lackadaisical move by the markets after the trade announcements indicate the market already factored those agreements in or is there more to it? “China has been going on for a year and a half. The trade was worn out. We did see the soybean market rally 60 to 70 cents ahead of that signing, so there is some thought that maybe we bought the rumor and now we sold the fact. “The thing is with this Phase 1 signing is it’s rotten timing from the standpoint that most of the boats are going to the southern hemisphere right now to ship the South American soybeans. We did see some sales prior to that Phase 1 signing. That was just to give them cushion until this South American crop came online. “If we’re going to get a positive from Phase 1, I think it’s going to be later on in June and July when they start booking new crop and shift those boats from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere. “Also, South America has favorable weather. They have some dry spots and so forth, but the weather is favorable. So, to get bullish news in soybeans we need to see a port strike, dock strike, truck strike or something to get the trade excited. “The key is Canada and Mexico. Mexico is a huge buyer of corn and pork. We just need to get all of the countries to agree on (USMCA) because if we don’t see a general agreement there that could be another thorn in the side as we move forward.” Is the market to the point now where there has to be actual sales in the books before there is positive price movement after many months of talk? “Yes, there are loopholes in the Phase 1 contract with China. You can back out in 60 days. There’s a 30-day window before anything happens. They’re not going to say they’re going to buy soybeans on such a date.” China has been hit hard with the Africa swine fever with millions of pigs being culled, according to reports. What impact does that have on the U.S. hog market? “Reports are that China lost

40% of its hog herd. So, they’ve gone through the world market and there’s a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of excitement about coming to the U.S. Kimmel “So far, they’ve bought minimal from the U.S. They do have a company called WH Group that bought Smithfield Foods (based in Smithfield, Virginia) in 2013. So, they have that source if they need it. “The thing about it is it’s bullish long-term from the standpoint that they’ll start replenishing those gilts and sows, so we’ll see a breeding herd go there. They bought a lot of Danish hogs. “But with this flu in the hogs and the flu with the people, the concern now is that we’re not seeing people go out to eat or travel in China, so meat consumption could be put on hold. “The other thing is I think they shutdown the wild animal market and so hopefully they’ll come and buy traditional pork and beef versus wild animals.” A comment was once made by another commodity trader that a tweet can now move the market 25 cents one way or the other. “Never has a president gone public as much as he has. It’s kind of interesting that people weigh on that. And part of that is we’ve got so many computers trading the market now and they’ll read the headline or read Twitter and see it and react not knowing what the consequences are.” Brazil is projected for a record soybean crop of 123 million metric tons, breaking the previous high mark by one million tons. Historically, South American soybeans flood the global market once their crops are harvested earlier in the year and it shifts to U.S. soybeans later in the year after our harvest. How does that all play into U.S. and the global market? “It’s come to light over the years that we’re losing market share of the world and that’s a concern. You want to keep that market share. There are the different seasons and we have to use those different seasonals to our advantage that we know they’re going to be buying and we have to take advantage of that purchasing power to sell when that happens. “We can’t wait around for some more opportunities down the road because it’s just like clockwork. Those shippers are going to have the boats in the northern hemisphere to capture our fall harvest and then they’re going to move those boats to the southern hemisphere to capture that market. “The only way we’re going to get real market-sensitive is if we have an extreme problem in either the northern or southern hemisphere to kind of break that up.” Tom C.

“We have a formula that, I think, Sonny, has been working very well. If it’s not, call me directly, and I’ll call Sonny and give him hell, OK?” Trump said to laughter from the audience. T he E nv i ron ment a l Protection Agency has been under fire from the U.S. ethanol industry for its handling of small refinery exemptions or SREs, which allow small oil refineries to not blend ethanol into gasoline due to economic hardship. The Trump EPA has granted over 80 SREs since 2017. “We are proudly promoting American ethanol. I recently approved E15 to be used all year round instead of eight months, and that’s a big thing for the American farmer. We’re providing unprecedented support to ethanol, support like you’ve never had before,” Trump said. He also didn’t miss a chance, in a presidential election year, to criticize his Democratic opponents. “The far left, they want to massively raise your taxes, crush your businesses with regulations, take away your health care and send bureaucrats in to interfere with your property and second guess every decision you make,” he said. Trump gave some indication of his confidence in the 2020 presidential race as he made a promise to the audience. “This is my third time in a row, and I promise I’ll be here next year, too. We’ll be here next year,” the president said with a smile. Trump showed why he remains popular among a majority of U.S. farmers and ranchers as he echoed their sentiments to continued and sustained applause and cheers from the Farm Bureau audience. “There are no better stewards of our precious natural resources than the American farmers who depend on the land and the environment for their very livelihood. You love your land. You’re going to take care of your land. You don’t need some bureaucrat in Washington telling everybody what the hell to do with your land,


Through late last week, one county had 80% of its farms enrolled, another was at 60%, several were in the 50% range, a large number of counties were around 40%, and some counties have only 8% of the farms signed up. “It’s going to be real tough for the counties that are lagging behind to get it done. I don’t want anybody to be left out,” Graff continued. There are no provisions for late filing. “If you do not make a selection by March 16, we will make that selection for you and what we will do is give the farm the same election that the farm had in 2018 under the old farm bill. But you won’t have a contract that you’ll get paid on in 2019,” Graff noted. “So, if you don’t make this election, the election is going to be made for you and it may not be the one that you want. It may not be the one that’s going to pay the best. “Especially farmers with wheat base and farmers that had a lot of prevent plant and failed acres, they really need to be going into the office and making some decisions right now.” The new program contracts must include the landowners’ signatures, making it that much more important to start the process now. Graff added that farmers can choose a particular program and if they need to make a change they can before the deadline. INFORMATION LINKS Information resources are available via links on the national FSA website, including the University of Illinois’ farmdoc and Texas A&M’s Agriculture and Food Policy Center websites. Both feature decision-making tools to determine which program may be the best fit for a farm or crop.

you love your land. When it comes to the environment, I will always trust a farmer over a Washington bureaucrat or a left-wing extremist,” Trump said. He also celebrated victories on two of the AFBF’s major issues — the federal estate tax and the Waters of the U.S. rule. In the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, that the president signed in December 2017, the federal estate tax exemption doubled, from $5.5 million to $11 million for single filers and from $11 million to $22 million for married couples. That exemption is in effect until 2025. In September 2019, Trump announced the repeal of the 2015 rule that expanded the definition of “Waters of the United States” as part of the Clean Water Act. “I terminated one of the most ridiculous regulations of all, the last administration’s disastrous Waters of the United States rule,” said Trump to loud and sustained applause. Trump echoed some of the AFBF’s concerns over the reach of the expanded WOTUS definition. “This rule gave bureaucrats virtually unlimited authority to regulate stock tanks, drainage ditches and isolated ponds as navigable waterways and navigable water. Sometimes you’d have a puddle, a little puddle and they considered that a lake,” Trump said. As he has done twice before at the AFBF annual meeting, Trump finished by celebrating U.S. farmers and ranchers. “Farmers have always been the keepers of our great American values. You champion the love of family, the dignity of work, and the glory of God. You teach your children to celebrate our nation, defend our freedom, honor our values and to always respect and cherish our great American flag,” said Trump as loud chants of “USA! USA! USA!” broke out along with applause. “I want to thank everybody. This has been such an incredible turnout, and I appreciate everybody for being here. Thank you all very much, this is a great honor and I’m glad we’ve been successful. We got those deals done,” the president said.

AFBF convention mourns passing of Bonnie Duvall By Jeannine Otto AGRINEWS PUBLICATIONS

AUSTIN, Texas — The annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation was tinged with sadness as members and leaders of the AFBF mourned the passing of Bonnie Duvall, the wife of AFBF President Zippy Duvall. Bonnie Duvall died at home on Jan. 18 after a battle with ovarian cancer. “Our hearts are heavy for our good friend and for your president, Zippy Duvall, in losing Bonnie. You know what a pair they were and just fighters to the end,” said U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue in his address to introduce President Donald Trump. The president also expressed his sympathy to the Duvall family. “I want to take a moment to send our love and support to the president of the American Farm Bureau, a great guy, Zippy Duvall. Sadly, Zippy’s wife, a tremendous woman, married for 40 years, Bonnie, passed away last night,” said the president, who spoke to the AFBF members on Jan. 20. “We want Zippy and his entire family to know that we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.

Scott VanderWal, AFBF vice president, chaired the annual meeting and expressed the AFBF’s sympathies. “Zippy and Bonnie were partners in every respect for all of their 40 years together. She put her business degree to work keeping the books on their Georgia farm, enabling Zippy to turn his attention to serving his fellow farmers at the county, state and national levels,” VanderWal. said. “At moments like this our faith consoles us, knowing her soul is at peace, having gone on to our heavenly Father. We will forever be inspired by her sense of humor, love of farming and optimism in the face of adversity. She taught us all what it means to make every moment count,” he said. Bonnie Duvall is survived by her husband; their children, Lt. Col. Vincent (Erin) Duvall, Cora (Jared) Terry, Zeb (Katie) Duvall and Zellie Duvall; and five grandchildren.

Weed, compaction concerns Prevent plant’s impact on soil health studied By Tom C. Doran AGRINEWS PUBLICATIONS

GIFFORD, Ill. — Hardware, software, crop inputs and agronomic information were all in abundance at the Midwest Ag Expo Jan. 29-30. AgriNews stopped by the GMS Labs and AIM for the Heartland booth to speak with David Mowers, agronomic consultant for AIM for the Heartland and Nitrogen Pulse, about the past and upcoming growing seasons. Nationwide prevent plant acres are estimated at a record 11.4 million acres, topping the previous high mark of 8 million acres. Illinois had over 1.5 million prevent plant acres and Indiana had more than 944,000. What impact does that have in terms of soil health? “It’s good and bad. The problem is if the soils remained saturated they’d be in an anaerobic condition and they would not be able to conduct bene-

ďŹ cial biological activity. “However, most of those prevent planted acres drained o and there was something growing there and in a lot of instances it was weeds. But Mowers still that allows for microbial activity to take place and to some degree that’s quite beneďŹ cial. “Some cover crops favor microbial growth and actually make it better. It helps for nutrient exchange and water-holding capacity. “I think if they can get good weed control this year that will alleviate a lot of problems and they should see a better growth next year. “I would imagine some of this stu got awfully compacted, as much rain as they had on it and if a person tried to till it in vain they could do a lot of damage. It’s the aeration I think more than anything else. “There’s something to fallowing ground. In biblical times they did it once every seven years. In the west they do it with wheat

and it conserves several things.â€? Weeds seemed to take over some of the prevent plant fields because the wet conditions delayed herbicide applications. What does that do to the seed bank? “That is a problem. You have a weed nursery. There’s no question about it. It was really diďŹƒcult this year with the growing conditions and everything else to get a good seeding established that would compete with weeds. If you could do that, it’s going to pay big dividends. “That’s going to be a problem these growers have. It’s going to take diligent weed scouting to make sure that they don’t let anything get out of hand.â€? This winter hasn’t been as cold as some in the past in terms of a hard freeze. What impact, if any, does that have on the soil and soil microbes? “Biologically it probably doesn’t do a whole lot, but physically it heaves the soil and does a lot for it to become more absorbent over the winter. “A year ago today it was 28 below zero or something like that. We had quite a bit of snow cover, so actually the frost wasn’t that deep last year. I think this freezing and thawing and freezing and thawing cycle helps soil conditions about as much as anything.â€? Any comments regarding nitrogen in the upcoming growing season? “One thing we’re going to have to worry about is nitrogen management. It’s going to be something that will be a focal point for farmers. A lot of fall nitrogen did not get applied, so we’re going to be in a bit of a situation there, especially if it stays moist in the spring, you are opening yourself up for problems. “There is talk of more corn acres. We’ll have a lot of ďŹ rst year corn this year because of the prevent plant acres.â€?

Modest increase in cattle prices seen Unexpected events can cause strong market reaction By Martha Blum


DUBUQUE, Iowa — Calf, feeder and fed cattle prices are predicted to be stable to a bit higher during 2020. “In general, we’re looking for somewhat higher prices of 2% to 4%,� said Derrell Peel, Breedlove professor of agribusiness at Oklahoma State University. “There is a lot of volatility in these markets relative to trade, macroe c onom ic c ond it ion s and politics,� Peel said during a presentation at the Driftless Region Beef Conference, hosted by University of Illinois Extension, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension. Markets can be impacted by “black swans� — the unexpected, unknown things that are difficult to predict. “The coronavirus is looking like it is one of those events,� Peel said. “The markets tend to react very strongly to unknown things, and as we get more information, the markets settle back down.� Calf prices are close to where they were one year ago. “The second half of last year had a lot of challenges that we didn’t anticipate in the first half of the year, including feed market concerns and a packing plant fire in Kansas during August,� Peel said. “We are comparing prices to a lower base last year, so we think we’ll see modestly stronger prices particularly during that time period.� Most of the time, Nebraska is the epicenter for feeder cattle prices, Peel said. “Cattle prices tend to go down in all directors from Nebraska,� he said. “Iowa, Wyoming and Kansas have pretty similar levels to Nebraska, and the lowest prices are in Alabama and Georgia.� Fed cattle prices typically peak at the beginning of the first quarter and move to a seasonal low around Labor Day, Peel said. There were two big, pronounced spikes in boxed beef prices during 2019, he said. “The first spike was because of the packing plant fire,� he said. “It was very brief, and prices came back down after about two weeks.� Boxed beef prices typically increase from October into November as purchases of prime rib are made for holiday meals; however, prices were very

strong last year, Peel said. “That reflects a couple of things going on, including a lower than expected Choice grading percentage, so the Choice supply was relative Peel tight,� he said. “As we have grown the cowherd since 2014, we have added to the normal culling rate, so we added 1.3 million more cows to slaughter in 2019 compared to 2015.� That 25% increase in cull slaughter, Peel said, put pressure on the market. “I expect both seasonally and maybe because of meat markets, prices will begin to reflect that,� he said. “We normally expect cull cow markets to have a very strong season run-up from November through February and March.� So far this year, the culling numbers have been strong. “That’s part of what’s keeping the market under pressure and not exhibiting typical seasonal patterns, but I think they will kick in,� Peel said. Hay stocks from 2018 to 2019 increased nationwide 6.8%, and hay production was up 4.3% in 2019 compared to the previous year. “There’s a lot of quality issues because of the wet, cool weather during the first half of the year,� Peel said. “That really compromised the quality of the hay, so we’re encouraging

producers to test their hay.� The challenging weather in 2019 resulted in a smaller corn crop, and quality is also an issue, Peel said. “We’re anticipating a modest increase in average corn price, but not the kind that will cause major feedlot response unless a surprise comes along,� he said. “For the first time in three years, we have pulled ending stocks of corn below 2 billion bushels, but as long as corn ending stocks stay above 1.5 billion bushels, we won’t see a lot of market ration,� he said. “The biggest job of the market is to make sure we don’t run out of stuff, and they way we do that is when it looks like things are getting tight, the market starts raising prices to figure out who wants it the most.� The U.S. cowherd hit a bottom in 2014 and increased through 2019, Peel said. “The last time we did a cyclical expansion was from 1990 to 1996,� he said. “I don’t think we’re in the economic conditions to do a sustained liquidation, so I think it is not really a peak as much as a plateau for this year.� Steers on feed on Jan. 1 were up 1.3% in 2019 compared to 2018, Peel said. “Then they were down ever y quarter through

2019 until this January when they popped back up,� he said. “Heifers are still above year ago levels and have been since the second quarter of 2016, but I think we’re approaching a peak,� he said. “Feedlot inventory right now is at record level back to 1995, and we’re about at the peak so we’ll

start pulling that down.� Cattle slaughter was up 1.7% in 2019, and that will probably decrease this year, Peel said. “Carcass weights all of last year were below year earlier levels until the end of the year when they got well above year earlier levels,� he said. “Beef production will probably go up a

little bit even though cattle slaughter will be slightly lower because carcass weights will push the total production a little higher.� Martha Blum can be reached at 815-223-2558, ext. 117, or marthablum@ agrinews-pubs.com. Follow her on Twitter at: @AgNews_Blum.

Affordable health care plan clears hurdle By James Henry AGRINEWS PUBLICATIONS

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — Legislation that would let Indiana Farm Bureau offer an affordable health care alternative took another step forward, but will still require farmers’ vocal support to cross the finish line. Senate Bill 184 would allow INFB to offer a non-insurance, high quality and more affordable health benefit plan to its members — specifically those who are sole proprietors with fewer than two employees. After advancing 8-0 from the Senate Committee on Insurance and Financial Institutions, it passed the full Senate with a 49-0 vote on Feb. 4 and has been referred to the House, where it will now be considered. INFB President Randy Kron told AgriNews at the Young Farmers and Ag Professionals Conference in Noblesville that he was pleasantly surprised by the senators’ unanimous approval. “I give a lot of credit to our members, the grassroots showing up at the hearing. We had the room full of people, 50 people probably fit in there, and there were close to that many out in the hallway. So, farmers have showed up,” he said. “I know at the time there were a few votes that were borderline, and I think having people there telling their stories and having a show of the need helped push a few of them over to the yes side.” But this is only halftime, Kron stressed. A lot can happen — and still must happen — between now and the end of the legislative session, which will conclude March 11, he said. “We’re cautiously optimistic. We’ve had a lot of support. But it’s still a long ways to go,” Kron said. “We had a great grassroots effort in the Senate side. It’s going to take that and more on the House side,” he said. “It was impressive when the chairman of the insurance committee says, ‘Well, how many are here for Farm Bureau and this bill?’ Everybody’s hand went up in the room. I guarantee that has an impact when you do that. And then he’s like, ‘Well, there’s a bunch out in the hallway there, too.’ It will take that. They’ve got to see the need to be able to make this happen. “Call your state representative,” he said. “Have

communications with them. You don’t have to get down in the details. Just say there’s a need, we need some more affordable choices.” BIG DEMAND Kron Farmers are excited for INFB’s health benefit plan and have repeatedly asked Kron how soon it will be available. “I’m surprised by how many have told me they don’t even have insurance. There’s a real need out there,” he said. There are other options

ava i lable, but they require two or more employees. A family farm doesn’t necessarily meet that requirement. “The farm community is a little unique in the way we operate,” Kron explained. “You think, well, these farms, they’ve got two or more employees, but I was talking to an individual the other day, it was the dad, himself and the grandson. You look at it and you think, oh, they’re a business, there are three employees. He told me, ‘Oh, no, we all

work together, but we operate separately. We each have our own ground. We share equipment.’ “From appearance, you would look at it and think, oh, that’s a family, they’ve got three employees. But all three are sole proprietors, and that’s what we’re finding in agriculture. There’s a lot of that out there.” SPEAKING UP INFB is not replacing or taking away anything that is available now. It is just trying to bring another option to the market that is more affordable, Kron said. “In my four years as

serving as president, seldom do I go to a meeting that somebody and the conversation on the side doesn’t turn to health costs or health insurance and how it’s affecting their farms,” he said, citing a woman who told him at the Statehouse that the monthly health insurance premiums for her and her husband and 4-month-old child cost more than her mortgage. “Generally, the conversation is ‘I can’t afford it’ or ‘there are problems, it’s affecting our bottom line.’ Somewhere in there it turns to, ‘Can’t Farm Bureau do something to help us?’ We’re going to

try.” But INFB leadership cannot do it alone. “The grassroots, our members, are going to be key to this passing. I can’t stress that enough,” Kron said. “What worries me is the vote in the Senate looks really good. So, you can think, oh, it’s done. It’s not. It’s not going to be an easy lift. Don’t take your foot off the gas now, please.” James Henry can be reached at 815-223-2558, ext. 190, or jhenry@ agrinews-pubs.com. Follow him on Twitter at: @AgNews.

Build a nutrient management plan By Andy Robinson

Site-specific nutrient management plans help maximize yield potential by minimizing nutrient loss, ultimately enhancing profitability. It should be an ongoing, year-afteryear process. A thorough nutrient management plan goes beyond soil sampling and subsequent application of recommended nutrients. It should also outline sustainable practices to protect the environment. Environmental resource goals are rarely achieved with a single conservation practice. A thorough nutrient management plan should include a menu of proven practices — based on the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship — to serve as your framework to achieve cropping goals, protect the environment and improve sustainability. Practices to control runoff and trap nutrients from leaving the field when used in combination can reduce agricultural non-point source pollution and enhance economically sustainable crop production. STEPS IN NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT PLANNING Follow these steps for developing accurate, achievable and sustainable site-specific nutrient management plans for your fields: n Obtain accurate soil information for each field or management unit. Examples include use of existing Natural Resources Conservation Service soil maps or may require a new farm soil map. Collect soil samples representative of all areas of a field and have them analyzed by an accredited soil sampling lab. n Calculate plant nutrient applications required. You should be able to get nutrient recommendations and harvest removal

information for common crops from the NRCS, local Extension offices, and university soil fertility publications and websites. n Estimate any applicable residual nutrient contributions from fertilizer or manures applied in previous seasons. n Apply animal manures and commercial fertilizers to supply nutrients when needed by using practices that ensure high use efficiency, such as right source, rate, timing and placement. n It’s important to keep records of nutrient sources, application dates, rates and methods for future reference. MAXIMIZE ECONOMIC RETURN Following the 4R nutrient stewardship principles — right source, right rate, right time, right place — not only optimizes nutrient management and nutrient utilization, but also is good business. Farmers have documented higher crop yield when adhering to better nutrient, soil and crop management practices. Improved fertilizer efficiency increases yield per acre and maximizes the input investment of each nutrient unit applied on every acre. And the additional, very important benefit? Adopting nutrient stewardship practices contributes to preserving natural resources, such as water quality and soil health, while minimizing the impact to the environment.

AUBURN, Ill. — Springfield Plastics Inc. is paying it forward by donating over $3,500 to local food pantries in Auburn and Waverly. It has been a longstanding tradition for Springfield Plastics to share the benefits of its busiest time of year by helping those in need in the local communities. SPI offered internal incentives to thank its employees for meeting the demands of the busy season, as well as making the employees’ hard work pay it forward within the community. For every hour of overtime worked in November, they pledged to donate $1 to local food pantries. By the end of the month, over 3,500 hours of overtime had been worked, resulting in over $3,500 for local food pantries. “We have a long history

of providing goods and services to the agriculture industry,” said Jennifer Furkin, vice president of SPI. “This is one way that we can give back to our employees’ local communities.” Springfield Plastics, based in Auburn, is a Midwest manufacturer

of plastic drainage pipe. It has served the agricultural industry by providing drainage pipe, designs and water quality solutions since 1978. Springfield Plastics is the only U.S. manufacturer certified to use only 100% virgin resin in all products.

From The Barns The price is right Things have been really busy here at River Oak. Winter has not been too hateful with us and for that we are grateful. That statement right there will probably jinx us for sure. January flew by because there was always something major going on the schedule. The western heifers came reluctantly across the river and some got pretty wet on Jan. 16. Carson and I could not even get the lead cows to start, so we had to call in Shannon and that was the difference. The day was cold but sunny, so we left them to dry a bit before loading them in the afternoon. By loading time the January sun had done them well and they looked really good going home. We were able to get 48 grazing days on 50 acres across 10 paddocks of stockpile with 72 head. At $1 per head per day, that winter graze returned $69.12 per acre. At 75 cents per head per day, the winter graze returned $51.84 per acre. If we add the

rest of the grazing summer to those acre returns, we have some impressive value per acre with very little cost. At times it was tedious with some snow and rain, but overall we left there with a pretty good graze and not a lot of forage or ground damage. That brings us to frost seeding time and we are watching the weather to find some agreeable forecasts. Right now, we have the remnants of a 2-inch snow on the ground. If it looks good, we will start next week. I don’t like too much snow on the ground, as it can result in some runoff or pooling of the frost seeds. Red clover is always our choice on the fescue. The price is right and though not absolutely failsafe, red clover surpasses all others in results. I had to beef up the mounting bracket holding the seeder on the ATV. This has resulted in a shocking ride. So, Jane has volunteered to use foam to make a cushion to help protect the back from some damage. We have been truly blessed to be able to purchase a 20acre property that borders us to the southwest. Although small in acreage, its value is great because it connects all our acreage south of the river

to the township road. That simply means when we have this fenced properly, we will stop writing to you about river crossings in poor, wet conditions. Instead, we will simply unload into the new South 20 or use the portable corral to load out of the south side of River Oak. And we can heat our considerable length of electric fence on the South without a highline all the way from home. I can sleep better from both of these improvements. We have been working this week to remove a considerable amount of trees and brush from the boundary fence areas. With that done, seeding comes next. Enjoy the Beef Expo, shop a number of spring sales and good luck with calving. And, of course, hold off on any February blizzards. Trevor Toland MACOMB

Markets head up We are well into February and the worst part of winter seems to have been back around Halloween. Aside from muddy cow pens, the winter has been pretty good so far, mild enough to make you think something bad is still around the corner. Only time will tell, but 60 days

from now we will be calving on green grass, planting corn and all the other spring things. It’s been a great winter for feeding cattle and they have done well. I’ve noticed that last fall’s lice treatment is playing out and some bare spots are showing on some of the feeding cattle. A wholesale spray treatment will be on the agenda for the next warmish day. The markets have been jittery over the coronavirus and other factors, but according to the folks at Cattle Fax at the Cattle Industry Convention, they should move modestly higher. I’m always bullish, so I hope they are right. With grass fever on the horizon, it looks like the feeder market is headed higher, as well. Maybe it will bring the fat market along for the ride. A rising tide floats all boats. Linda and I took a couple of days to attend the Cattle Convention in San Antonio. We came across a few new products at the trade show and will report on their effectiveness after we have a chance to test them.

Sustainability seemed to be the theme I heard repeated many times by the various speakers at the conference. While virtually everybody has their own definition for “sustainability,” how consumers view it may be the only definition that matters. Ultimately, those consumers and their willingness to buy our products will determine whether or not our operations are sustainable. However, making those consumers understand all we do and how we do it will, in my opinion, help to shape their buying decisions and our very livelihoods. We have just one set of calves left to wean and that will be done this week. One of our biggest questions now is whether to go straight on feed with all our 2019 calves or slow grow them on silage and grass and target next spring’s higher market. Weighing time, interest and cash flow takes a lot of figuring, but is worth the exercise. We have quite a bit of seeding to get done if we ever get any frost to work with, so I guess I’m hoping for a little more cold weather. I expect we will just deal with whatever comes along.

Fall in love with dairy again By Monica Nyman

Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month may be on your mind this February, but Lactose Intolerance Month is also on the calendar. Do you love the taste of dairy foods, but occasionally feel discomfort after eating them? Lactose intolerance is a type of food sensitivity, not an allergy or disease. The condition arises from not having enough lactase or the enzyme that digests lactose, which is the natural sugar in milk and dairy foods. Health experts note that because dairy foods provide many nutrients needed for a healthy diet, you should not give up dairy all together. For those with lactose intolerance, there are variety of ways to enjoy the recommended three servings of dairy every day without the discomfort. Start with a small amount of milk daily and increase gradually until you find the amount that works with your tolerance level. Solid foods help slow digestion and allow the body more time to process lactose. Drink milk with meals, blend it with frozen fruit in a smoothie or add it to hot or cold cereal for a protein-packed breakfast. Natural cheeses contain minimal amounts — less than 1 gram — of lactose, due to the steps in cheese- making process, along with natural aging. Top sandwiches or whole grain crackers with slices of cheddar, colby, Monterey Jack, Gouda, provolone, or Swiss. Cheese pairs well with all food groups, and a 1 1/2ounce serving provides 30% of your daily calcium needs.

SPOON IT UP While yogurt contains lactose, it also has live and active cultures. This unique feature helps break down the lactose; making it easier to tolerate. Greek yogurt contains less lactose than traditional yogurt, due to the straining process used to create a thick texture. It also contains live and active cultures, helping to digest lactose. Try topping either type of yogurt with fresh fruit and a handful of granola for a tasty breakfast, snack or dessert. Lactose-free products such as milk, yogurt and ice cream are available in many local retail stores. These products contain the same nutrients found in conventional dairy products, like calcium, potassium and vitamin D, and have a great flavor — all without the lactose. Substitute lactose-free products in favorite recipes and at the dinner table. Monica Nyman is a registered dietitian and senior educator with St Louis District Dairy Council.

St. Louis region’s inland port system No. 2 in tonnage ST. LOUIS — The latest data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reveals the St. Louis regional ports moved from the third position into the second position for inland port total tonnage in the 2018 rankings. The port system handled 37.4 million tons of commodities over the course of the year, a 13.2% increase over the prior year. Just 1.1 million tons separated it from the top position, which the Port of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky held onto, despite a drop in its total

tonnage for the year. The rise in the rankings adds to the accolades for the St. Louis region, which continues to rank as the most efficient inland port district in the nation in terms of tons moved per river mile. During 2018, the St. Louis region’s barge industry handled more than 534,000 tons per mile along the 70 miles that make up the port system. The system also has the second highest concentration of port facilities per mile of all inland ports, contributing to growing

awareness of a 15-mile stretch of the Mississippi River that flows through southwestern Illinois and eastern Missouri at St. Louis known as the Ag Coast of America. “For you as a region to come up to No. 2 for total tonnage is a real accomplishment, but it’s not surprising as St. Louis has been gaining for a while,” said Ken Eriksen, senior vice president with IHS Markit, a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions for the major industries and markets that drive economies

source from the Mississippi River system, which is recognized for better soybeans with higher protein and better oil quality. “The St. Louis region has become a vital spot on the map from the grain per spec t ive,” E r i k sen said. Corn, soybeans and unclassified oilseeds were certainly among the commodities that contributed to the increased tonnage moving through the St. Louis area ports, but crude oil also was up significantly over 2017 as the United States became a net exporter of oil, and iron ore more than doubled, likely tied to the resumption of operations at U.S. Steel’s facility in Granite City, Illinois.

worldwide. Eriksen noted there are several things contributing to the positive trends for the St. Louis region’s port system, among them the fact that there is only one set of locks between St. Louis and Asia, and that is the Panama Canal. He also highlighted the deeper draughts that allow for barges to be loaded heavy, rail access in the region from both sides of Mississippi River and the presence of six Class I railroads, the surplus supply of grain available and the available supply of corn that can come to the river all the way from Minneapolis. He added that there also is growing demand from Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand that want to

provides integrated logistics and barge transportation services on the U.S. Inland Waterways, as well as in South America, and has operations in the St. Louis Port District, is seeing firsthand the impact of the growing volumes of commodities moving through the region. “The increased demand for transload capacity resulted in increased operational hours, demand for barges and labor needs,” said Tim Power, president of SCF Marine Inc. “Because St. Louis is an important intersection point for all Class I railroads, multiple interstate highways and the river transportation system, we are able to pull grain from surplus regions in the west and north, funneling grain to the river system via our ports.” The region’s commitment to investing in its freight network is key to accommodating continued growth in tonnage. “We know when we do not invest in infrastructure, nothing moves. When we do, it creates the opportunity for optionality,” Eriksen said. “Infrastructure is everything. It supports rolling and floating assets alike. We see more coming into the St. Louis area to take full advantage of the optionality here and get the most favorable price.” Mary Lamie, executive vice president of Multi Modal Enterprises at BiState Development and head of the St. Louis Reg iona l F reig ht way, noted that, based on their tracking, more than $1 billion in critical infrastructure projects are moving forward across the St. Louis region.

U.S. pork exports record-large in 2019

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor recognizes Jeff Broin, the founder and CEO of POET Biofuels, as The American Biofuels Visionary.

American Biofuels Visionary award to POET’s Jeff Broin KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. — During the organization’s 11th annual Executive Leadership Conference, Grow th Energ y CEO Emily Skor honored Jeff Broin as The American Biofuels Visionary. Tom Buis, who previously served as CEO of Growth Energy, joined Skor on stage to present the special recognition, which was awarded in tribute to a lifetime of leadership that has fueled the growth of America’s entire biofuel sector. “Jeff Broin’s unwavering leadership and transformative vision for U.S. biofuels has touched the lives of every American, from farm families in South Dakota to New York motorists,” Skor said. “As founding chair of Growth Energy, he followed in the footsteps of other great American founding fathers, building an enduring legacy that will shape the future of homegrown energy for generations to come.” In addition to his work with Growth Energy, Broin is the founder and CEO of POET Biofuels, where he turned a humble family business into the world’s largest ethanol producer. His efforts have guided the industry’s most groundbreaking victories, from smashing the blend wall to capturing global markets. “I am honored and humbled to receive this thoughtful recognition from Growth Energy,” he said. “Helping to found and

grow this organization has been a true labor of love for me, going back to my roots on the family farm. “While we have won many battles, the war is far from over. I will continue to work with the biofuels industry and agriculture to drive biofuels to new heights in the years to come.” To commemorate those achievements, Broin was presented with a handcrafted box, which carries the image of Howard Chandler Christy’s 1940 painting, “Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States.” The iconic painting, which hangs in the U.S. House of Representatives, captures the optimism and courage of leaders like George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. “Our own founding father, Jeff Broin embodies that spirit, and I’m so proud to recognize his contributions to our industry with this award,” Skor said.

DENVER — U.S. pork exports posted new volume and value records in 2019, reaching nearly $7 billion, according to data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and compiled by the U.S. Meat Export Federation. Exports of U.S. beef were below the previous year’s record levels, while lamb export volume was the second largest on record. Pork exports soared to 282,145 metric tons in December, up 34% yearover-year and surpassing the previous high, set in November 2019, by 9%. Export value was $760 million, up a remarkable 44% from a year ago and breaking the previous record, also from November 2019, by 7%. These results pushed 2019 exports 10% above the previous year in volume, at 2.67 million mt, and 9% higher in value, at $6.95 billion, breaking previous records for both volume, at 2.45 million mt in 2017, and value, at

$6.65 billion in 2014. Pork export value per head slaughtered was $66.70 in December, nearly one-third higher than a year ago and the highest monthly average since 2014. For 2019, per-head value averaged $53.51, up 4% year-overyear. The percentage of pork produc t ion ex por t ed also set new records in December, as exports accounted for 32.1% of total pork production and 29.3% for muscle cuts only, up substantially from a year ago, at 26.1% and 23.6%, respectively. In 2019, exports accounted for 26.9% of total pork production, up from 25.7% and the highest since 2012. For muscle cuts only, the ratio was 23.6%, up from 22.5% in 2018. “Despite retaliator y duties and the other barriers U.S. pork faces in China, exports to the China/Hong Kong region closed 2019 with tremendous momentum,” said Dan Halstrom, USMEF

President and CEO. “We look forward to continued success in 2020, especially if U.S.China trade relations continue to trend in a positive direction. The coronavirus situation is certainly concerning and disruptive, but it hasn’t dampened our enthusiasm for the potential this market holds for U.S. red meat.” December beef exports totaled 111,315 mt, down 1% from a year ago, valued at $682 million, down 3%. Exports in 2019 totaled 1.32 million mt, 2.5% below the previous year’s record volume. After increasing by more than $1 billion in 2018, beef export value eased by 3% to $8.1 billion. Beef export value per head of fed slaughter was $321.21 in December, down 9% from a year ago. The 2019 average was $309.75, down 4%. December exports accounted for 14.3% of total beef production and 11.6% for muscle cuts only, down from 15.5% and 12.6%, respectively, a year ago.

Exports in 2019 accounted for 14.1% of total beef production and 11.4% for muscle cuts, down from the previous year’s record-high percentages, at 14.6% and 12.1%, respectively. “It was gratifying to see beef exports to Japan perform so well in December, given that the first tariff rate cut was pending and set to take effect Jan. 1,” Halstrom said. “Buyers in Japan have been waiting a very long time for tariff relief and have already responded enthusiastically. We look forward to solid growth in 2020 and beyond.” December exports of U.S. lamb were 1,225 mt, up 9% from a year ago, while value jumped 24% to $2.36 million. For 2019, lamb export volume increased 22% from a year ago to 15,732 mt, valued at $26.1 million, up 12%. Led by strong demand in Mexico, export volume was the second highest on record behind 2011 and export value was the highest since 2014.

IPT Bull Sale kicks off Illinois Beef Expo SPR INGF IELD, Il l. — Commercial cow-calf producers and seedstock breeders interested in purchasing a total performance tested bull will want to attend the 2020 I l l i noi s P er for m a nc e Tested Bull Sale. The sale will be the leadoff event of the Illinois Beef Expo. There are 56 bulls cataloged with 24 being longer-aged 2018 mature bulls and 32 yearlings. A breakdown of the breeds includes 29 Angus, 19 Simmental and SimAngus and eight Polled Hereford. The sale is scheduled for 11 a.m. Feb. 20 and will be held in the Livestock Center on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. The 2020 edition will be the 52nd annual sale

with 4,788 bulls valued at over $8.8 million sold at previous sales, according to Travis Meteer, IPT Bull Sale manager. The sale order will be based on a Power Score system that utilizes the economic indexes provided by the breed associations. The Power Score will be calculated on the “Percentile Rank” for these values. The economic indexes are $W and $B for Angus, API and TI for Simmental and BMI and CHB for Hereford. Along with strict requirements for superior EPDs, bulls must meet some of the most rigorous requirements in the industry. “These bulls don’t just have to pass the test — they

have to pass every test” Meteer said. All of the bulls must meet a stringent minimum scrotal circumference for their age. Mothers of the bull are required to test negative for Johne’s Disease or come from a Level 1 or higher herd of the Voluntary Johne’s Certification Program.

And to make it easy, KingFisher corn has FiberGest™, a fiber digestibility rating system based on TTNDFD to make hybrid selection easier. FiberGest™ rates hybrids on a scale of 1-to-10, with 5 as the industry average, so that you can tell at a glance which

Sen. Durbin discusses farm, rural issues Meeting with Illinois farm credit system representatives


National Sorghum Producers Chairman Dan Atkisson (left) and NSP Board Director Amy France present the Sorghum Congressional Award to Rep. Roger Marshall, R-Kansas.

Congressional Award to Marshall, Peterson WASHINGTON — During the annual National Sorghum Producers D.C. Fly-In, NSP producer leaders awarded both House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minnesota, and Rep. Roger Marshall, R-Kansas, with the Sorghum Congressional Award for 2019 — the organization’s top honor presented to individuals who work diligently for the sorghum producers they represent and for achievements in creating and implementing farm policy that benefits sorghum farmers. The NSP board of directors recognized Peterson for his support and leadership crafting the 2018 farm bill that provided effective risk management tools, advances in conservation policy and continued support for sorghum ethanol production. “Chairman Peterson has been a true and devoted champion for U.S. agriculture,” said NSP Chairman Dan Atkisson, a sorghum producer from Stockton, Kansas. “His leadership through the 2018 farm bill provided certainty producers

needed during a trying time, and he has remained a steadfast voice of reason throughout his tenure on the House Agriculture Committee.” NSP also recognized Marshall for his representation of farmers in the U.S. Sorghum Belt. Marshall represents the first district of Kansas, the largest sorghum-producing state in the nation, and has advocated for sorghum producers through the Environmental Protection Agency approval of a sorghum oil pathway, Renewable Fuels Standard policies and working to find resolutions during the China tariff issue. “Congressman Marshall represents a large number of our grower members in Kansas and has been a powerful advocate for the Kansas Big First,” Atkisson said. “We appreciate his relentless efforts to be a champion for sorghum and the Kansas farmers he represents.” Past recipients of the Sorghum Congressional Award can be found at sorghumgrowers.com/recognition.

WA S H I N G T ON – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, a member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, met with Illinois representatives of the farm credit system.

Annie’s Project names co-CEOs Brandt promotes five WOODLAWN, Ill. — Annie’s Project Education for Farm Women named joint CEOs for the APEFW leadership team, Karisha Devlin and Doris Mold. This new partnership approach brings together the strengths of two recognized leaders to expand the reach of APEFW, which has educated more than 14,000 women in agriculture since 2003. APEFW, based in Woodlawn with outreach across the United States, empowers farm and ranch women and growers to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Devlin and Mold have a long history of working with women in agriculture. They will work closely with the APEFW Board of Directors, state coordinators and facilitators and director of administration on moving the organization forward. “We are looking forward to the next chapter of growth of Annie’s Project, which will benefit women farmers, ranchers and growers across the United States,” said APEF W Board President and Annie’s Project Founder Ruth Hambleton.



A native of Mississippi, she received a bachelor’s degree in animal science, as well as a master’s degree in agribusiness management from Mississippi State University and a doctorate in educational leadership from University of Missouri. Devlin is passionate about educating farm women and has been involved with Annie’s Project since 2004. She has served on the Annie’s Project National Leadership Team and later on the APEFW Board of Directors. Additionally, Devlin serves as the co-state coordinator for Annie’s Project in Missouri. Her dissertation “Meeting the Educational Needs of Farm Women: A Case Study of Annie’s Project,” evaluated the effectiveness of Annie’s Project in meeting the educational needs of Missouri, Iowa and Illinois farm women.

DORIS MOLD Mold is the president of Sunrise Agricultural Associates LLC, an agricultural consulting firm. She is an agricultural consultant, agricultural economist, educator and advocate, as well as a farm co-owner and operator. Mold’s consulting practice has included a broad range of work, including business and risk management, farm stress, coaching, evaluation, marketing, advocacy, leadership and organizational development. She teaches farm and agribusiness management at the University of Minnesota for MAST International. Mold served on the Annie’s Project Board of Directors for four years, as well as the American Agri-Women Executive Committee for six years and was president of AAW in 2016 and 2017. Mold has also been co-led of the Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture “farm stress” project and co-founded the Women’s Agricultural Leadership Conference, which is entering its 22nd year. In 2015, she served on an expert national Panel on Statistics on Women and Beginning Farmers for the USDA Census of Agriculture that recommended the new demographic questions for the 2017 Census of Agriculture, which resulted in an increase of nearly 27% in women producers.

Civility is on shaky ground

Rural Issues Cyndi YoungPuyear

Say “please,” “thank you” and “excuse me.” Make eye contact and listen. Wait your turn to speak. Stand to greet someone. Shake hands. Address adults as Mr., Mrs., or Miss. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Hold the door for

others. Wait until everyone is served before eating. Do not reach across the table. Do not talk with your mouth full. Ask to be excused before you leave the table. Some days I wonder if there is any civility remaining in the world in which we live today. You do remember civility, don’t you? Maybe we crossed the line in the privacy of our own homes, but formal politeness and courtesy in behavior and speech was expected of us in a public setting and we expected it of others. Elected officials, especially those at a state and national level, were held to a higher standard of formality. Although the citizenry often disagreed with them, the offices they held were highly respected. “Just call me Mike,” said the man sitting across the studio table from me last week. “No, I’m sorry, I can’t do that,” I said. “You are the lieutenant governor for the state of Missouri, and I hold that office in high regard.” He was Mike for years before he became a state legislator and then lieutenant governor. I do think he’s a great guy, but even if I didn’t, I would still respect his office. Presidents John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon both appeared on non-news television programs back in their day — JFK chatting it up with Jack Paar on “The Tonight Show” and Nixon with a brief cameo appearance on the then-popular “Laugh In” where he deadpanned “Sock it to me.” Although lighthearted appearances, the formality of the office of president was not lost on the audience. I remember clearly the 1992 “Arsenio Hall Show” in which President Bill Clinton donned wraparound dark sunglasses and a loud yellow tie, played “Heartbreak Hotel” on the saxophone and joked with the show’s host. It was a pivotal moment in how many people would view not only President Clinton, but those presidents who would come after him. President Barack Obama was a regular guest on numerous entertainment programs. He danced, he talked about his relationship with the first lady and cracked jokes with talk show hosts while holding the highest office in our country. You can blame television, social media and video games for the wavering of civility in this country, but the truth is, we’ve quickly accepted — even welcomed — this move toward a more relaxed atmosphere surrounding the elected leaders of our state and nation. As those in elected office have been encouraged to be more casual and relatable and “the kind of guy you want to go have a beer with,” we’ve lost something important that we may never get back. I’m disappointed that the leader of my country chose a social media platform to randomly “tweet” important announcements, as well as opinions and insults. But the recent public lack of civility and the great disrespect for the Office of the President of the United States by the Speaker of the House when she tore up her copy of the State of the Union address left me shaken.

Going green is about getting green One thing Big Ag has gotten very good at over the last two decades is fighting what it sees as the “green” invasion of do-good outsiders into American farming and ranching. You know who I’m talking about; these Farm & Food tie-dyed, righteous interFile lopers of Eastern Elites and Left Coast Libs Alan Guebert riding impossibly white unicorns into battle in defense of climate change, natural resources, governmental environmental rules and — warning: hum loudly if you don’t want to hear this one — over-population. For the most part, however, Big Ag’s powerful lobbying arms have grabbed these environmental anarchists and tossed them and their Birkenstocks aside. This is especially so since the beginning of the deregulation-driven Trump administration. Gone or made toothless is the Waters of the U.S. rule, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Paris Climate Agreement. While most farmers and ranchers cheered these deregulatory actions, upstream food and fiber users were busy identifying, buying, packaging and retailing clothing, food and beverages that mostly younger, more affluent customers saw as “green” or “sustainable,” or “regenerative.” In short, they were demanding — and getting — through their purchasing power the exact opposite of what U.S.

farmers and ranchers and their commodity lobbying groups were actively fighting against. In late January, Tyson Foods Inc. joined the fight on the side of its customers by announcing it would help form and fund, according the to Wall Street Journal, “a worldwide coalition of protein producers, academics and environmental and human-rights groups to work together on social and environmental issues.” Wring the PR from that sentence and what Tyson hopes to do is take on animal agriculture’s biggest problems — an enormous greenhouse gas footprint, increasing water pollution, an at-best spotty record on animal rights and worker rights — so it can tell its customers, “We care about the same things as you do, so buy Tyson protein.” And Tyson has a lot of protein to sell. Each week the big-shouldered butcher, according to 2018 data, slaughters 37 million chickens, 408,000 hogs and 133,000 head of cattle in 50 U.S. facilities. Little wonder then that a new Tyson heir, 29-year-old John R. Tyson, returned to the family business — after acquiring a MBA from Stanford University — as the company’s new chief sustainability officer. He knows that in the long run, an environmentally greener Tyson means a profitably greener Tyson, too. Tyson isn’t the only major food company to see green. Last November, Maple Leaf Foods, Canada’s leading animal and plant protein purveyor, announced it was the “first major food company in the world to be carbon neutral.” It did so as a way to “acknowledge … the urgent

need for transformative change” in “the global food system.” A big part of the change, explained Sylvain Charlebois, writing in the Nov. 28, 2019, Manitoba Co-operator, is that in today’s hyper-competitive, global marketplace, “everything in on the table.” And, added the professor of food distribution and policy at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University, Maple Leaf Foods is “becoming a completely different company” in order to “adapt to a wider variety of customer situations” it now faces due to environmental challenges. Players in other industries are feeling the same urgent environmental concerns as their customers. It’s been widely reported that Nestle SA intends to cut its use of oil-based plastic by one-third. Microsoft Corp. recently said it intends to cut its carbon emissions to zero. Curiously, however, as these customer-driven, globe-spanning giants move into greener pastures, American farmers and ranchers are openly celebrating — what almost certainly will be — their short-lived, rule-tossing victories that will make rural America and what it grows less green and less customer friendly. Worse, in today’s world of perverse politics, these farmers and ranchers — and their powerful allies in Congress and the White House — believe they are winning the day for themselves when, in fact, they’re losing the future for all who follow.

Although we have passed some significant mile markers this month, the race to expand U.S. agriculture’s global market share is far from over. We are urging the administration to build on this momentum and complete a full trade agreement with China to secure fair and free trade there once and for all. We will also be keeping a close watch on progress with European Union trade talks to bring balance to ag trade and remove the continent’s non-scientific barriers to our ag products, and we anticipate the upcoming talks with the United Kingdom can expand an already strong market for our farm exports. The remaining hurdles are real, and it will take time to rebuild our markets once these new deals go into effect. But the accomplishments we are celebrating this month are proof that these challenges can be overcome. Time and again, America’s farmers and ranchers have risen to the challenge of competing in new markets. Our ag exports have traditionally enjoyed a surplus, not by chance, but because of the sterling reputation of American-grown food, fuel and fiber. Thanks to these new trade deals, we can continue to lead the way in growing the highest quality, and most sustainable, ag products in the world. Scott VanderWal is a third-generation corn and soybean farmer and cattle feeder from Volga, South Dakota. He is the president of South Dakota Farm Bureau and vice president of American Farm Bureau.

Risk management programs for hemp growers Pilot insurance plan offered

now, and the deadline to sign up for both programs is March 16. “We are pleased to offer these coverages to hemp producers. Hemp offers new economic opportunities for our farmers, and they are anxious for a way to protect their product in the event of a natural disaster,” said Farm Production and Conservation Undersecretary Bill Northey.

WA S H I N G T O N — The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the availability of two programs that protect hemp producers’ crops from natural disasters. A pilot hemp insurance program through MultiPeril Crop Insurance provides coverage against loss of yield because of insurable causes of loss for hemp grown for fiber, grain or cannabidiol oil. The Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program coverage protects against losses associated with lower yields, destroyed crops or prevented planting where no permanent federal crop insurance program is available.

MULTI-PERIL CROP INSURANCE PILOT INSURANCE PROGRAM The MPCI pilot insurance is a new crop insurance option for hemp producers in select counties of 21 states for the 2020 crop year. The program is available for eligible producers in certain counties in Alabama, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana,

Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesot a, Montana, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin. Information on eligible counties is accessible through the USDA Risk Management Agency’s Actuarial Information Browser. Among other requirements, to be eligible for the pilot program, a hemp producer must have at least one year of history producing the crop and have a contract for the sale of the insured hemp. In addition, the minimum acreage requirement is five acres for CBD and 20 acres for grain and fiber. Hemp will not qualify for replant payments or prevented plant payments

grown for fiber, grain, seed or CBD for the 2020 crop year where no permanent federal crop insurance program is available. NAP basic 50/55 coverage is available at 55% of the average market price for crop losses that exceed 50% of expected production. Buy-up coverage is available in some cases. The 2018 farm bill allows for buy-up levels of NAP coverage from 50% to 65% of expected production in 5% increments, at 100% of the average market price. Premiums apply for buyup coverage. For all coverage levels, the NAP service fee is $325 per crop or $825 per NONINSURED CROP producer per county, not DISASTER ASSISTANCE to exceed $1,950 for a proPROGRAM NAP provides cover- ducer with farming interage against loss for hemp ests in multiple counties. under MPCI. This pilot insurance coverage is available to hemp growers in addition to revenue protection for hemp offered under the WholeFarm Revenue Protection plan of insurance. Also, beginning with the 2021 crop year, hemp will be insurable under the Nursery crop insurance program and the Nursery Value Select pilot crop insurance program. Under both nursery programs, hemp will be insurable if grown in containers and in accordance with federal regulations, any applicable state or tribal laws and terms of the crop insurance policy.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Under a regulation authorized by the 2018 farm bill and issued in October 2019, all growers must have a license to grow hemp and must comply with applicable state, tribal or federal regulations or operate under a state or university research pilot, as authorized by the 2014 farm bill. Producers must report hemp acreage to FSA after planting to comply with federal and state law enforcement. The farm bill defines hemp as containing 0.3% or less tetrahydrocannabinol on a dryweight basis. Hemp having THC above the federal statutory compliance level of 0.3% is an uninsurable or ineligible cause of loss and will result in the hemp production being ineligible for production history purposes.

USDA casts vision for scientific initiatives through 2025 WASHINGTON — U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue applauded the publication of the USDA Science Blueprint, which will serve as the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s vision for and continued commitment to scientific research. “USDA’s agricultural research is vital to helping our farmers, ranchers,

producers and foresters increase efficiency and productivity, and our science agencies play an integral role in setting forth new visions for innovation through their work,” Perdue said. “As the department strives to anticipate and meet the future needs of our customers, the USDA Science Blueprint will serve as a

Grains: In 2019, 15 million to 20 million acres of farmland were not planted due to wet and cold conditions at planting time. In 2020, the odds are great those acres will make their way back into production which will, with normal weather conditions, keep grain prices on the defensive into early spring, or longer. To those who do produce grain, I suggest hone your marketing skills. The key to success in agriculture is marketing, pure and simple. Here in 2020, when those 15 million to 20 million acres come back into production — and they will — marketing skills will need to be razor sharp. And all ag producers should watch the weather carefully as, I still fear greatly, “climate change” issues move forward.
