OPINION

Letter: State Rep. shouldn’t be working against local control To the Editor: Most people in Dodge County, Minn., will be surprised to know that one of the first bills taken up at the State Capitol this year would weaken township local control. What is worse is that my legislator, Rep. Duane Quam, is a co-author of the bill. House File 389 would give outside corporate interests the upper hand when they want to push unexpected and harmful developments into our communities. It weakens the right of townships, counties and cities to say “no” to projects that could harm the community. As a lifelong Dodge County resident, I know that my community is better off with strong local control. When a New Jersey investor wanted to build an industrial mega-dairy in Ripley Township, my neighbors and I were concerned. We knew it would be bad for the community. Because we had strong local control our township had a say. We put an interim ordinance in place and then enacted a common sense limit on how large a feedlot

INSIDE THIS ISSUE: 22A — Hawaiian style: Uneducated consumer or savvy shopper? 24A — Coming in 2012: Another ‘black ink’ year for pork

can be in our township. But Rep. Quam’s bill would have prevented our townships from having a say. His bill says if a project submits a permit application then it is exempt from the interim ordinance. The problem is neighbors and township officials often don’t even learn about a project until the permit is submitted. So if Rep. Quam’s bill passes by the time the community learns about a project it will be too late to do anything. That is wrong! Minnesotans value strong local democracy that favors community rights over corporate rights. We didn’t send legislators up to the Capitol to weaken local control and push legislation for corporate special interests. The issue is simple. Minnesotans value strong township rights and Rep. Quam should too. He should drop his support of House File 389. Lois Nash Land Of A Thousand Winds Dodge Center, Minn.

Commentary: Proposed CAFO rules ‘significantly flawed’ The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation submitted comments on behalf of Farm Bureau members from Minnesota to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the proposed Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation reporting rule. In the comments, MFBF President Kevin Paap said that the proposed rule’s two primary options are significantly flawed because they exceed the EPA’s authority under the Clean Water Act while creating intense security, safety and privacy concerns for farmers. There is ample public information already available that the EPA can gather for CWA purposes. “We urge the EPA to pursue that approach instead.” Paap also said that the MFBF objects to the proposed rule’s two primary options for the following four reasons. First, many of today’s livestock and poultry farms are designed and ran so as not to have any discharges. As no-discharge facilities, they merit such a presumption under Section 308 and should not be required to report unless information applicable specifically to them indicates otherwise. Second, these two options would effectively create a publicly available “national registry” of the approximately 20,000 farms the EPA says would be subject to this rule. This greatly raises the risk that these farms and many farm families will experience malicious acts of violence and intimidation by extremists. Two such unlawful and violent incidents

took place in California recently. Third, such a national registry also creates unacceptable national biosecurity risks inconsistent with federal policy under the 2004 presidential directive “Defense of United States Agriculture and Food” and the 2007 National Infrastructure Protection Plan that treats livestock and poultry facilities as critical infrastructure to be protected from terrorist acts. Lastly, “when people come onto our members’ farms unauthorized (even without malicious intent) and fail to follow their animal health protocols, the risk of disease and death for their animals increases exponentially. Contact with people not following these practices is one of the top methods for the transmission of animal disease from farm to farm.” Paap also said that the EPA’s third approach would

use information already publicly available. The MFBF does not oppose this approach, but would oppose the EPA compiling that information into some kind of central registry because it to raises security and privacy concerns.

Letter: Bills remove local control, insult intelligence To the Editor: Five-hundred-foot wind towers, silica sand quarries on our river valleys, public hearings, newspaper stories, arguments about free enterprises and home owner’s rights. Some folks worry about what the fuss is. Soon it will be over. Rep. Dan Quam and others are pushing bills HF 389 and SF 270 through the House and Senate that will prevent local yokels from getting involved in big business. Counties and townships won’t be able to hold

moratoriums on permit applications that are already made. In other words, strangers with big plans can get in with only state approval. Quam gets his ideas from a Texas education and refuses to go to township or county meetings to argue his position or meet his victims. This in a time when all of us are sick and tired of “Crony Capitalism,” he wants to give the bad actors more tools. Only a governor’s veto again will stop these bills from becoming laws. This is a taking of your local government and is an insult to our intelligence and our freedoms. Mike Noble Kenyon, Minn.

If you are looking for an easy, delicious lunch or supper try our “It’s a Meal Strata”. This meal is easy on the pocketbook and the waistline. I like it because it is packed with vegetables, which lowers the calories, and it does not have much bread. I like to serve hot whole-wheat bread with it.

When I can, I try to sauté the vegetables and cut up the ham and bread ahead of time. Then once I am ready to prepare the meal I stir everything together and bake. While the strata is in the oven I can get a fruit tray cut, the table set and the milk poured.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut the vegetables so they are about the same size. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Turn off heat and pat the vegetables with paper towels to remove the moisture. Set aside.

Bring tastes from French country kitchens to yours Cookbook corner By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent “Country people” live all over the world, from the Great Plains of North America to the steppes of Russia, from South American cattle ranches to African savannahs. They all share the tradition of growing and eating plants and animals that are adapted to local conditions. Each ethnic cuisine takes the greatest advantage of whatever grain, bird, root, fish, berry or herbivore is at hand. Of course, where once we all ate “locally” because we had to, our modern food transportation systems make it infinitely easier to eat a much broader spectrum of foodstuffs. That doesn’t matter to a lot of “country folks,” who merrily continue to eat what their ancestors have been eating for generations, even millennia. In France, food that has simple ingredients, perfectly cooked and in season, using fresh herbs and ancient

recipes, is the ideal. Many of the fancyschmancy classic French dishes are just hopped-up versions of down-home country cooking. French cafes and bistros serve up this savory, hearty fare to the general applause of a grateful nation. “The French Country Table: Simple Recipes for Bistro Classics” by Laura Washburn (Ryland Peters & Small, 2010) brings these meals to our American country kitchens. ■ French onion soup is the dish that made me love onions. The rich broth and silken onions, the crusty crouton and gooey cheese … one bowl is a satisfying meal. It’s easy to make, too. There are many variations, but this one is straight from the country of origin. French Onion Soup 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 3 large onions (about 3 pounds), thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Add the onions and cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and flour and cook, stirring for about 1 minute. Add the stock, wine, bay leaf and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Taste and

adjust the seasoning. At this point, the soup will be cooked, but standing time will improve the flavor — at least 30 minutes. Before serving, preheat the broiler. Put the baguette slices on a baking sheet and brown under the broiler until lightly toasted. Set aside. Do not turn the broiler off. To serve, ladle the soup into ovenproof bowls and top with a few toasted baguette rounds. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top and cook under the still-hot broiler until browned and bubbling. Serve immediately. Serves 46. ■ Take one pork roast, marinate in See COOKBOOK, pg. 9A

Marinated Pork Roast 1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 pounds 1 large onion, sliced 2 carrots, sliced 1 celery rib, with leaves Marinade: 750-milliliter bottle dry white wine 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced 1 fresh bay leaf 2-3 fresh sage leaves A sprig of thyme 2 tablespoons coarse sea salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon black peppercorns Two days before serving, mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a large, non-reactive bowl. Add the pork and vegetables, cover, and refrigerate for two days, turning the pork regularly. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400 F. Remove the pork from the marinade and put it in a large roasting pan. Add the vegetables and flavorings from the marinade. Cook in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with the marinating liquid. Serve in slices with the side dish of your choice. ■ Fresh green beans are a snap to prepare and difficult to screw up. For these reasons, my family eats a lot of them.

30 states. Not all of the 564 federallyrecognized tribes have reservations; of those that do, reservations vary in size. Some appear like checkerboards, due to several convoluted laws, while others are wide-open prairies. Until recently, the one thing most of them had in common was poverty. Treuer’s mother remembers a relatively recent time when many homes on her northern Minnesota reservation consisted of tar-paper and studs and few had working toilets. The average household income on Treuer’s reservation today is some $31,000 less than it is for the rest of America. “On some reservations in the Dakotas,” Treuer writes, “the median income hovers just above $10,000… Life is hard for many on the rez.” And it’s only slowly getting better. Indians are now U.S. citizens (which didn’t happen until 1924). Drugs, alcohol and crime are major problems on the rez, but many reservations have police forces, as well as tribal courts. Casino money brings paved roads and it pays for legal teams to recover treaty

rights (of which, Treuer says, “most Indians didn’t know about ... for the first half of the 20th century”). And Indian children are no longer routinely removed from their homes just because they’re Indians. There are, I think, two different audiences for this book: Indians, for whom “Rez Life” will be validation of the truth; and white readers, for whom this book will be an eye-opener. Treuer plays with the emotions of the latter audience. He shocks us, he makes us laugh, then he lulls us with poetry before he wallops us with history. I loved that range in writing. I also loved this book for its harsh beauty, its honesty and for Treuer’s incredible talent at telling stories that mean something. For rez residents, there’s not much new here, but I think this is an invaluable book for anyone who’s curious or who lives near a reservation. For you, “Rez Life” explains a lot about the people and culture right in your own back yard. ■ Look for the reviewed book at a bookstore or a library near you. You may also find the book at online book retailers. The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and never goes anywhere without a book.

Responding to the needs of a growing population of farmers and ranchers living with a disability, the U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded 23 grants to organizations to help thousands of people with disabilities continue their chosen agricultural professions. The USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture awarded the grants, totaling $4.1 million, through the AgrAbility program. The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis received $180,000. “Thanks to the hard work and dedication of all Americans devoted to agriculture, U.S. agriculture is a bright spot in our economy and provides a livelihood for one in 12 Americans,” said Catherine Woteki, USDA chief scientist and under secretary for Research, Education and Economics. “Nearly 2 million individuals working in agriculture in the United States live with a disability that affects their work and daily life. The AgrAbility program provides these producers with the training and resources they need to remain profitable, to maintain their quality of life, and to continue to contribute to our nation’s supply of food, feed, fiber and fuel.” NIFA awarded the funds to land-grant universities that have joined with nonprofit disability organiza-

tions to address the specialized needs of American farmers and ranchers with disabilities. Projects include educating professionals on how to assist those with disabilities and directly training disabled agricultural workers. Past AgrAbility projects have improved customers’ financial stability, access to life activities and the ability of states and regions to deliver timely services to those with disabilities. Since initial funding in 1991, NIFA has awarded grants to more than 35 states resulting in on-farm assistance to more than 15,000 farmers while educating thousands of professionals on how to accommodate those with disabilities in agriculture. The typical award provides up to $180,000 per year for up to four years to qualifying universities. In addition to the state project grants, one national grant provides additional support for a National AgrAbility Project, which is directed jointly by Purdue University and Goodwill Industries. These national partners joined to provide technical assistance and professional training for the state projects, produce resource materials and distribute information related to the project.

If you are having trouble repaying student loans, it is important to act quickly — before you are in default. The government can garnish your wages or offset your income tax refunds if you fail to make payments on federal loans for nine to 12 months. Private loans are turned over to a collection agency which can cause long-term damage to your credit. Your lender can explain possible solutions before you default. A deferment of payments may be available if you are still in school, are unemployed or are going through a hardship. You may qualify for a forbearance which will allow for a temporary postponement or reduction of payments for a period of time. Income-based caps can cap payments on federal loans based on income. If you are having a problem with your federal student loan, contact the FSA Ombudsman at the U.S. Department of Education. The FSA Ombudsman is dedicated to helping students and parents resolve disputes and other problems with federal education loans. The FSA Ombudsman will research your problem in an impartial and objective manner and will try to develop a fair solution. Even though the FSA Ombudsman does not have the authority to impose a solution, many students have found the FSA Ombudsman to be helpful in resolving disputes with lenders. You can contact the FSA Ombudsman by phone at (877) 557-2575, by fax at (202) 275-0549, by mail at U.S. Department of Education, FSA Ombudsman, 830 First Street, NE, Fourth Floor, Washington, DC 202025144, or by e-mail at fsaombudsmanoffice@ed.gov.

Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9). That’s the soapbox that will change this country, one friendship at a time.

with a pyramidal growth form. Topping and tipping pruning practices do more harm to trees than they help. Topping is pruning large upright branches between the nodes and is sometimes done to reduce the height of the tree. Tipping is pruning lateral branches between nodes to reduce the crown width. These practices result in sprouts and dead branches that will reduce the life of the tree. Use the crown reduction method as a last resort and avoid topping and tipping. What about treating the wounds? Most of the time the tree sap, gums and resins naturally work to decrease pathogens invading the trees. Therefore, there are few circumstances when wound dressings are needed for pruning cuts. Often, they create more problems than they avoid.

Spring weather will soon be heading our way. It is best to prune apple trees, including flowering crabapples, mountain ash, hawthorns and shrub cotoneasters in late winter from February to early April. Spring or summer pruning increases chances for infection and spread of the bacterial disease fireblight. Autumn or early winter pruning is more likely to result in drying and die-back at pruning sites. Oaks, ash and elm trees can also be pruned this time of year. Pruning approaches include crown thinning, crown raising and crown reduction. Crown thinning is primarily used in hardwoods to increase the amount of room for light and air to penetrate the tree. You still will want to maintain the trees natural shape and form. Another form of crown thinning is to make sure there is only one dominant leader instead of two or more co-dominate leaders on the tree. Crown raising is cutting off some of the bottom branches to permit travel underneath the tree. This could be for lawn mowers, people and vehicles. Be sure not to raise the crown of the tree too high to avoid an excessively high crown. Crown reduction is another approach to pruning. This method should be used only in a last resort when the tree has outgrown its permitted space. This approach should not be used on trees

USDA unveils new plant hardiness zone map The U.S. Department of Agriculture released the new version of its Plant Hardiness Zone Map, updating a useful tool for gardeners and researchers for the first time since 1990 with greater accuracy and detail. The new map — jointly developed by the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and Oregon State University’s PRISM Climate Group — is available online at www.planthardiness.ars.usda.gov. ARS is the chief intramural scientific research agency of USDA. For the first time, the new map offers a Geographic Information System-based interactive format and is specifically designed to be internetfriendly. The map website also incorporates a “find your zone by ZIP code” function. Static images of national, regional and state maps have also been included to ensure the map is readily accessible to those who lack broadband internet access. “This is the most sophisticated Plant Hardiness Zone Map yet for the United States,” said Catherine Woteki, USDA under secretary for Research, Education and Economics. “The increases in accuracy and detail that this map represents will be

extremely useful for gardeners and researchers.” Plant hardiness zone designations represent the average annual extreme minimum temperatures at a given location during a particular time period. They do not reflect the coldest it has ever been or ever will be at a specific location, but simply the average lowest winter temperature for the location over a specified time. Low temperature during the winter is a crucial factor in the survival of plants at specific locations. The new version of the map includes 13 zones, with the addition for the first time of zones 12 (50 to 60 F) and 13 (60 to 70 F). Each zone is a 10-degree Fahrenheit band, further divided into A and B five-degree Fahrenheit zones. To help develop the new map, the USDA and OSU requested that horticultural and climatic experts review the zones in their geographic area, and trial versions of the new map were revised, based on their expert input. Compared to the 1990 version, zone boundaries in this edition of the map have shifted in many areas. The new map is generally one five-degree Fahrenheit half-zone warmer than the previous map throughout much of the United States. This is mostly a result of using temperature data from a longer and more recent time period; the new map uses data measured at weather stations during the 30-year period 1976-2005. In contrast, the 1990 map was based on temperature data from only a 13-year period of 1974-86. Some of the changes in the zones, however, are a result of new, more sophisticated methods for mapping zones between weather stations.

valley bottoms and ridge tops. Also, the new map used temperature data from many more stations than did the 1990 map. These advances greatly improved the accuracy and detail of the map, especially in mountainous regions of the western United States. In some cases, advances resulted in changes to cooler, rather than warmer, zones. While about 80 million American gardeners, as well as those who grow and breed plants, are the largest users of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, many others need this hardiness zone information. For example, the USDA Risk Management Agency uses the USDA plant hardiness zone designations to set some crop insurance standards. Scientists use the plant hardiness zones as a data layer in many research models such as modeling the spread of exotic weeds and insects. Although a poster-sized version of this map will not be available for purchase from the USDA, as in the past, anyone may download the map free of charge from the internet onto their personal computer and print copies of the map as needed. As the USDA’s chief scientific research agency, ARS is leading America toward a better future through agricultural research and information. ARS conducts research to develop and transfer solutions to help answer agricultural questions that impact Americans every day. ARS work helps to: • ensure high-quality, safe food and other agricultural products; • assess the nutritional needs of Americans; • sustain a competitive agricultural economy; • enhance the natural resource base and the environment; and • provide economic opportunities for rural citizens, communities and society as a whole. ❖


How to start flower, vegetable seedlings indoors The whitish or brown molds that grow on the surface of peat pots and other organic materials are unsightly, but will not harm healthy seedlings. However, the presence of molds may indicate excessive moisture levels. Overwatering may lead to dampingoff and other serious problems. To avoid problems associated with overwatering, allow the potting soil to dry somewhat between waterings. Proper watering also will minimize the growth of molds on the surface of the peat pots. The seedlings that I have started indoors are yellow-green in color. What should I do? The yellow-green color is likely due

to a nutrient deficiency. Nitrogen and phosphorus deficiencies sometimes occur when flower and vegetable seedlings are started indoors. Symptoms of a nitrogen deficiency include yellow-green foliage and stunted plant growth. Phosphorus-deficient plants have purplish leaves. Applying diluted fertilizer solution once every two weeks should help supply adequate nutrients to the seedlings. This article was submitted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

packs when the first “true” leaves appear. Some of the seedlings that I start indoors collapse and die shortly after germination. Why? Damping-off is probably responsible for the collapse and death of your seedlings. Damping-off is caused by several different fungi. Environmental conditions associated with damping-off are poorly drained potting soil, overcrowding and excessive watering. Damping-off can be prevented by using clean containers, a sterile, welldrained potting mix and by following good cultural practices. Wash previously used containers in soapy water, then disinfect by dipping them in a solution containing one part chlorine bleach and nine parts water. Sow seeds thinly to avoid overcrowding. Flower and vegetable seeds need an evenly moist potting mix for good germination. After germination, allow the potting soil to dry somewhat between waterings. I’ve started flower and vegetable seedlings in peat pots. A whitish mold has recently appeared on the surface of the peat pots. Will the mold harm the seedlings?

THE LAND, MARCH 2, 2012

The flower and vegetable plants that I start indoors get tall and spindly. Why? Tall, spindly growth is a common problem when growing transplants indoors. Poor (insufficient) light, excessive watering, high temperatures, excessive fertilization and crowded conditions are factors that contribute to spindly growth. Proper growing conditions should produce short, stocky transplants. Immediately after germination, move the seedlings to an area with a temperature of 60 to 70 F and place them under fluorescent lights (a sunny window usually doesn’t provide sufficient light). A standard fluorescent shop fixture containing two 40-watt tubes (one cool white and one warm white) works fine. Position the fluorescent lights no more than four to six inches above the seedlings. Leave the lights on for 12 to 14 hours a day. Thoroughly water the seedlings when the soil surface becomes dry to the touch. Fertilize every two weeks with a dilute fertilizer solution. Seedlings growing in flats should be transplanted into individual pots or cell

Develop a backup plan for managing online accounts Paying bills and balancing the family checkbook with a bank’s online software program saves time, but few people plan for handling the accounts if there is an unexpected illness or even a death in the family. “Typically, one person in the household takes responsibility for paying

the bills online or managing the online banking account,” said Brenda Schmitt, Iowa State University Extension Family Finance field specialist. “However, if something happens to that person, the whole family’s finances can be in jeopardy.” Many online banking accounts are

tied to a person’s e-mail address and specific username and password that the user created. Usually there are security questions the bank uses to verify that the correct person is accessing the bank account. For example, consider a wife who pays all of the bills online and transfers money between savings and checking to cover the expenses. Her husband has no idea how to find the bank’s website, let alone what the username and password are. If something happens to the wife, the husband will face an uphill battle accessing the information, especially if he doesn’t know the username and password to log onto the account and he cannot answer the security questions.

Or, consider giving a trusted family member a copy of the usernames and passwords for safekeeping. Never keep usernames and passwords on a computer. If the computer contracts a virus or is hacked, the passwords become fair game. Additionally, knowledgeable computer users could retrieve the information from old computers and access the account. Another option for password safety is using a password manager software like KeePass — http://keepass.info — or 1Password — http://agilebits.com/products/1Password. Online password protection programs keep track of all passwords so users only have to remember one username and password.

Include dental hygiene in health routine for pets cause infections and disease, or they can be symptoms of serious illness in veterinary patients. “The teeth are 42 little patients in a dog’s mouth, so they need to be well taken care of and treated with respect,” Dodd said. “It is best to begin home care when your puppy or kitten is between 8 and 12 weeks old; however, it is never too late to start,” he said. “The first step is to train your pet to accept brushing of the teeth and the best way to approach that is to establish a routine of brushing your pet’s teeth with gauze around your finger. It may be helpful to use beef or chicken broth with dogs or tuna water with cats to get them accustomed to the routine instead of using cleaning agents.” Once a pet is familiar with the daily routine, you can switch out the gauze for a finger brush or a very soft toothbrush. Then you can incorporate using pet toothpaste. Do not use toothpaste intended for people because the ingredients can cause stomach issues in your pet if ingested. Between the age of 4 months and 7 months all of the “baby” teeth should fall out and be replaced with adult teeth. It is important to monitor this process and make sure that the “baby” teeth do in fact fall out and not stay in the mouth when

the adult teeth erupt. These persistent teeth can lead to malocclusion and severe periodontal disease due to crowding and rotating of the erupting teeth. Prompt veterinary attention can help prevent these problems. Contrary to some beliefs, it is important not to give pets bones from leftover food to chew on. In addition to gastrointestinal issues, bones can cause teeth to break which leads to additional visits to the veterinarian and further medical problems. More and more pet owners are recognizing the connection between healthy teeth and their animal’s overall well being, Dodd said. When you make a dental appointment for yourself, it might be a good idea to make a veterinary appointment to have Spot and Fluffy’s teeth cleaned and checked also. An ounce of dental prevention could lead to a longer, healthier life for you and your pet. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

rience with childhood pets, but veterinary medicine has come a long way over the past 20 years. “It used to be that most of our pets died at younger ages, so periodontal disease did not have a chance to impact their health and cause damage to their kidneys, livers or other vital organs. Veterinary medicine has advanced such that we are now better able to treat these diseases and our animals are living longer, healthier lives,” Dodd said. Dental therapy for pets includes many of the same procedures that help humans maintain healthy teeth, gums and mouths. Available treatments include oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, restorations and even orthodontics on furry patients as needed. Some of these procedures may be offered by your family veterinarian or you may be referred to a board certified veterinary dentist. Dodd said it is important that pet owners become aware of the serious consequences of ignoring a pet’s dental health. “Periodontal disease is a disease of neglect. If preventative dental health is not practiced and periodontal therapy is ignored, other health complications may follow,” Dodd said. Teeth, gum or mouth problems can

An ounce of prevention may be worth a pound of cure, but when it comes to Spot or Fluffy’s health, practicing good dental hygiene may make a ton of difference. “In fact, an animal’s teeth may be more important to its overall health than most pet owners realize,” said J.R. “Bert” Dodd, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. “Human dentists have done a really good job of educating people on practicing good preventive dental health, but often we do not think about preventive dental health for our pets,” Dodd said. Overall, dental health can be an indicator of current or future health challenges for humans and pets. “As goes the mouth, so goes the health. Taking care of your pet’s mouth and keeping it nice and healthy should help the animal live longer,” Dodd said. Preventive dental care includes regularly brushing your pet’s teeth and getting an oral evaluation and dental cleaning at least annually by your veterinarian. Some pet owners may question the importance of dental health maintenance for pets based on their own expe-

Christensen said that

the Land Stewardship Project was helpful at the beginning for locating local sources. They purchase as close to home as possible, but parents have driven some distance to pick up food items at various Minnesota communities. Vegetables come from Earthrise Farm near Madison, meats from Minnesota Valley Organics near Echo, and Pastures-A-Plenty near Kerkhoven, berries from Hilltop Harvest near Vesta, grains from Whole Grain Milling at Welcome, eggs from Four Seasons Organic Farms near Ghent, and pure maple syrup from Kroll’s near Long Prairie. One of their longest drives was to southeast Minnesota to purchase frozen organic vegetables from Sno-Pac, a family run business. One of their secondary goals is to expand the students’ food palettes. This is not so much introducing them to exotic flavors as it is acquainting them with fresh ingredients as opposed to the processed food so many eat these days. “Imagine tater tot hotdish with all organic and local ingredients,” Christensen said. “The same with our pancakes,” which are served with real whipped cream and local strawberries. “Even our mac and cheese is made from scratch with organic ingredients.” While their lunch program is not a new idea — it is done on a larger scale in places like California — it is unique to this area. They know of only one school in Wisconsin with a similar lunch program, though they would be happy to share experiences with another program if there is one. What may be unique is that they see this not only as feeding their children nutritious meals (the almost 20 volunteers are mostly mothers of students), but also as being stewards of God’s creation.

Skrien: Eating together as a family a luxury for many


Hawaiian style: Uneducated consumer or savvy shopper? By CAROLYN VAN LOH The Land Correspondent Farmers shudder to think that many consumers today don’t understand where their food comes from. A visit to a coffee plantation and a nut processing company on the Big Island of Hawaii and the Dole Plantation on Oahu would prove to mainland farmer/tourists that they sometimes fall into the uneducated consumer category. Phil Becker and his wife, Merle, operate the Aikane Plantation and Coffee Co. begun by Merle’s great grandfather in 1894 near the Kilauea volcano on the Big Island. They have received numerous awards for their operation, and their coffee is the only Hawaiian brand to receive the Hawaii seal of quality. “We pick the coffee beans, or ‘cherries,’ by hand from August through April,” said Angie, one of the plantation workers. “But because of this season, I think we’ll be picking until June.” Trees continually produce cherries, so pickers check the trees frequently. Freshly picked berries are covered with water overnight to ferment before being power washed by hand

Coming in 2012: Another ‘black ink’ year for pork By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The Minnesota Pork Congress is one of the larger state pork shows in America, with a broad agenda that puts the emphasis on great speakers and challenging topics. This year’s agenda included a Manure Applicators Workshop, Pork Export Projections, Energy Savings in Nurseries with Reduced Nocturnal Temperature and Alternative Feed Ingredients. “The exhibitors obviously help finance these events and the exhibitors go where the pork producers are. Iowa and Minnesota are where the most producers are found,” said Minnesota Pork Producers Executive Director Dave Preisler. The Minnesota Pork Congress draws from North Dakota, South Dakota, Canada, Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Even though there is consolidation within the support industry, exhibitor numbers keep increasing. “Almost 10 more exhibitors this year than last year, which was also a record number,” Preisler said. This year’s list tallied 150, with several out of Canada and a few even from Europe and Asia. The beef industry talks of a repositioning going on because of the severe drought through cattle country of southwest United States. Is the pork industry repositioning? “Yes,” Preisler said, but it’s not a weather-related phenomena. The “people resources” and physical infrastructure to better handle the pork industry have shifted things to the Upper Midwest. Perhaps not surprisingly, our manure handling capabilities are better here. “There’s tremendous demand from other farmers,” he said, “plus we

have the cultivated crops for positioning of our livestock manure. And because of environmental issues that have become a huge advantage for this area.” So are the attendees at the Minnesota Pork Congress more “tuned in” these days? Preisler thinks so, perhaps because many pork producers are younger. They have an insatiable quest for information and new technologies. There’s simply more “action” at a pork show than a crop show. “What I’m seeing are a lot more younger guys and gals coming back to the farm. A profitable industry that also offers a good lifestyle, especially for young families, is making the difference,” Preisler said. In addition, a lot of today’s hog operations are big enough to support more than one family. In

crops and hogs and that’s a very competitive model. We went so far and so fast into specialization. Now we’re seeing diversification back on the scene and a major reason is the big impact of manure utilization. You really can drop the cost of crop production by using your own hog manure as the primary fertility ingredient for your corn crop.” Pork exports are staying strong, currently at about 27 percent of total U.S. production, Preisler said. That number keeps ramping up, especially because of the demand out of China, Korea and other Southeast Asia countries. Two advantages are driving this export market: The “pig health” issue for hogs produced in China and South Korea; plus livestock density is getting to be a significant problem in China and other Asian countries. Interestingly, China still produces about 10 times more pork than does the United States. Yet Meyer said the Chinese farmer still lives in a “Communist essence, Dad now has the financial command” society, so what motivates opportunity for his offspring to return the Chinese pork farmer? to the farm. “Meeting the next generaPreisler has traveled to China a few tion of pork producers is a special treat times.

Ear tags identify sows at automated feeding station Electronic ear tags that precisely determine how much feed a given gestation animal gets to eat during any 24-hour period. This isn’t new technology; it’s already common in milking parlors and robotic milking operations. That said, Nedap Agri’s display at January’s Minnesota Pork Expo still generated questions because with farrowing crates a diminishing strategy in modern swine production, stall feeding via electronics is being looked at. Gary Wyse, representing Nedap at the Expo, explained his electronic sow feeding technology this way: “With the ear tag in place, each animal walks into a feed station which automatically locks behind the animal, providing total security as it munches through its daily ration. An antenna reads the ear tag identifying the animal and then dispenses the exact amount of feed for that particular animal.”

Feeding time is adjustable. If the producer prefers his sows and gilts eating only during an 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. period, so be it. However “chow time” can be any time within a 24-hour time frame. Typically gestating sows eat only once per day, but if a particular animal prefers eating two or three times per day, she can be ear tagged with information that triggers the feeding stalls accordingly. The number of stalls depends on herd size as well as the cost efficiencies a particular producer is look-

Sort of like getting milk with your crackers. — Gary Wyse, speaking of adding water to feeding bowl ing for. Wyse said, “with fewer sows and more space per sow, the higher the production on a piglet-persow-per-year basis up to about 24 square feet per sow and 45 sows per station. In this scenario you can see upwards of 30 piglets per sow per year. More sows per feeding station and arithmetically you see a downward trend in piglets per sow per year.” He said Nedap doesn’t have substantiated research to verify anticipated production declines if sows per feeding station get increased above that suggested 45-sow figure. “But you will see a decline in a sow’s piglet production as you increase up to 65 animals per feeding station.” Cost per feeding station as compared to a typical stall barn is about $200 to $210 per sow space in the system. The electronics of this sophisticated system are guaranteed for 30 months from date of manufacture. The systems are manufactured in Holland, long a leader in animal handling equipment. Ear tags are warranted for five years. “If they get dumped into the manure pit, and you can find them send us the damaged tag and we’ll send you a new one,” Wyse said. Farm costs are about $10 per ear tag. Wyse admits that these tags are expensive but with a five-year warranty they can be reused multiple times, meaning if the “older sows” get marketed and the fiveyear span hasn’t expired, the tags can be taken off

Labor savings with this automated system are difficult to predict. “It depends so much on how a particular producer sets up his overall housing and handling for his gilts and sows. However with a dynamic group it can be substantial. We have a 1,000-sow producer in Manitoba that has only three guys to run the entire operation,” Wyse said. The system can do several automated jobs. For example, when you need to administer shots, if they are spray marked with a different color, it can sort out and direct these individuals into a specific pen. And it can adjust to handle DDGs in the ration, even up to a 40-percent level. “As long as it’s still a dry feed the system will handle such a ration,” Wyse said. “But you can adjust each sow’s feed strategy by the parity of that sow. Also you can adjust by body condition scores of each animal. You have the opportunity to use up to 999 feed strategies with this system.” Note that this system is designed only for sows and gilts during their gestation period. It is not a lactation feeding system. This technology dates back to 1982, and the current electronic system has been available since 1996. “Today it’s just an easier system to work with. It’s very common in the western European nations. We have some installations in China, and some in Eastern Europe,” Wyse said, and it’s now slowly working into the American swine industry. In Western Europe “open pen” gestation becomes mandatory in 2013, so as sow stalls disappear, the Nedap system will become much more common.

If it’s a five-pound allotment for that particular sow, feed gets dropped in 3 1/2 to 4-ounce increments until the total allotment is reached. The system also simultaneously adds some water to the “feeding bowl” so she’s enjoying a mush meal, so to speak. “Sort of like getting milk with your crackers,” Wyse said. It’s not enough water to drink but it certainly makes dry feed more palatable.

Machinery Pete keeps an eye on used machinery values By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer His business card with usual name, e-mail address and phone number also has two questions: “What’s it worth?” and “Where can I find it?” Machinery Pete, widely known to anyone buying or selling machinery, is otherwise known as Greg Peterson. He graduated with an accounting degree from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn., in 1988. His first job out of college was in accounting. However his Dad, Jerry Peterson, was a third generation farm implement dealer at Benson, Minn., so Greg simply says, “I grew up around farm machinery. But when I graduated from Gustavus it didn’t feel right to go home and join my Dad. Plus the ’80s were tough going for both farmers and implement dealers. “My wife, Jackie, also a Gustie graduate, was a Rochester (Minn.) native and got a teaching job in Rochester. So we moved to Rochester in the fall of 1989. I had a two-month window looking for an accounting job. It was during this window that I talked with my dad and this opportunity of a niche business compiling auction prices

came into being.” Peterson said it was a banker in Morris, Minn., who already had created the business of auction pricing. “John, my banker friend at Morris, got a promotion and no longer had time to handle his little sideline business of collecting auction prices. But my father used his auction price book; in fact literally wore the cover off it because my Dad always wanted to know what the equipment was worth sitting on his own implement yard. “John was ready to sell his business. My Dad with 34 years in the equipment business was telling me that this information is very helpful. So I listened to my father and that was the start of compiling auction prices.” For the first five years Peterson had two part-time jobs to make this thing swing, but since 1995 this has been a full-time job and then some. Business has been good for Machinery Pete. His staff includes three people but he still keeps his finger on much of the auction pricing regardless the time frame. Like at 11 p.m., midnight or later he may be scanning See PETE, pg. 27A

timing sometime a factor. “We’re seeing more nice farm auctions close to the start of planting, especially if it’s good equipment. Also quite a few auction companies now have their own indoor facility so year-round auctions can work, regardless the challenges of the weather,” said Peterson, now 46 years old. Because he loves what he’s doing he ventured that hopefully 30 years from now he’d still be quoting farm equipment prices. He wants as much total information to validate values. Like even pricing a set of 18.4-38 duals priced at $1,200 he wants to know if its 60-percent tread or 80-percent tread. “As best we can, we want to place the buyer at the auction and that means all the detailed information we can give a potential buyer. And that’s really the fun of my work. We’re constantly digging for info.” Peterson can be contacted at greg@machinerypete.com or (800) 3810423 or log on to MachineryPete.com. ❖

oping online auctions. “But I’m also seeing traditional auctions now bringing in online bidding so besides your local bidders you might have bids from several different states. That’s bringing a new level of sophistication, and competitive bidding into the auction world,” he said. Relating to the growing world of collector machinery items he sees a new segment of people, often older farmers and retired farmers wanting to add that special 40-year-old tractor that was a prime power when they were active, but smaller farmers. “Powerful memories with a guy with a hunk of disposable income is where the premium money is being paid for these tractors.” You would think the auction business was mostly seasonal, mostly because of weather and the “farming time” of farmers. That used to be the routine with little auction time during the St. Patrick’s Day to early fall period, then pick up until the end of the year and into March. But today auctions are a year-round event with

Quality equipment that has been prepped for the sale is the real determiner of value. He thinks farmers are in fact taking much better care of their equipment, partly because it costs so much but also because most farmers now have quality shops and sheds for the maintenance and storage of their machinery. “The thing about a farmer selling his own equipment on his own farm is that you don’t have the dynamic of suddenly three or only two bidders at the end willing to be the last bidder,” Peterson said. Online action is making a dent in the auction business. The price gap between traditional auctions and online auctions is narrowing considerably, Peterson said. “As these websites become more savvy and work in more video and pictures, they’re becoming a real growing marketplace in the machinery world. Buyer’s premium depends upon each online auction firm with lots of differences from one to the next. Consistency is the key with these firms devel-

PETE, from pg. 26A Facebook and drop in with a note “I just saw this John Deere 4020 sell for such and such. So quite often at midnight I’m doing some Facebook corresponding. It’s been part of my life for 22 years now. The fun I have is interacting with people.” So is “retail auction” still the better way to sell used equipment versus private treaty? He talks about the changing scenario of farm auctions today. “It’s much like the celebration of a life. Quite often we see tears at a farm auction, but tears of joy. A good auctioneer can give that ‘forward lean’ to a sale; in essence he/she knows how to coax those extra dollars out of a given piece of equipment. “There aren’t as many auctions these days. So know when a sale does show up with really good quality equipment you get more people attending and ready to go. Then the ‘auction dynamic’ kicks in and we push to these high prices, currently often record highs over any previous sale for a particular piece of equipment.”

Sale entries, trade show exhibits sought for beef showcase Sale nominations and trade show booth exhibitors are being sought for the first annual Minnesota Beef Showcase Sale and Agribition. The three-day event will be held March 29-31 at the Red Horse Ranch Arena in Fergus Falls, Minn. The Minnesota Beef Showcase features an all breeds beef consignment sale, industry trade show and educational seminars. “The Minnesota Beef Showcase Sale and Agribition is a new yearly opportunity for all involved in the beef industry to come together in one location. Cow-calf producers will be able to select from several breeds and reputable breeders to purchase their herd’s next genetics through the sale. They will also be able to participate in educational seminars and interact with exhibitors during the trade show,” said Jim Scharpe, executive secretary for the Minnesota Angus Association.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

The sale will feature consignments from some of the most progressive cattle breeders in Minnesota and surrounding states. The Minnesota Beef Showcase will host the annual state sales of the Minnesota Angus Association, Minnesota Gelbvieh Association, Minnesota Maine Anjou Association

and Minnesota Limousin Association, as well as representation from other breeds. Consignments include bulls, open heifer, bred heifers and cow-calf pairs, sold as individual lots or pens of three. The sale will also include select embryo lots from desirable genetic matings. Sale cattle will be available for viewing all day March 30 and the morning of March 31. Sales will begin at 1 p.m. on March 31, with all breeds selling concurrently. Consignment information can be found at www.mn-angus.com. The sale catalog may also be viewed at this web address or at www.conoverauction.com, prior to the sale. The trade show will be open all day on March 3031. Trade show booth rental space is available and may be reserved by contacting Scharpe at (507) 3803431 or scharpe8@frontiernet.net. “The trade show allows for interaction between cattlemen and cattlewomen and businesses and venders marketing a wide-range of agriculture and household products,” Scharpe said. The University of Minnesota Beef Team and Igenity representative Zac Hall will lead the educational

seminars at 1 p.m. March 30. One topic that will be address is “DNA Enhanced EPDs — What they mean to the breeder’s bottom line when purchasing breeding stock.” The Minnesota Beef Showcase Sale and Agribition is also pleased to announce the partnership with AgCountry Farm Credit Services of Fargo, N.D., as a major sponsor of the Minnesota Beef Showcase. AgCountry Farm Credit Services provides credit and financial services to farmers and ranchers in eastern North Dakota and northwest and west central Minnesota, and to agribusinesses across the country. “Although the Minnesota Angus Association has taken a lead role in getting the first Minnesota Beef Showcase off the ground, it is very much a multibreed association effort. The goal going forward is to have a representative for each breed association involved serve as the organization and planning committee. This is a non-profit event and will highlight the Minnesota beef industry,” Scharpe said.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Transitioning to organic farming can present financial uncertainty for farmers, but a special program is available in Minnesota to help them accomplish their goals. The “Tools for Transition” program, led by the University of Minnesota, Minnesota Department of Agriculture and other partners, provides scholarships covering up to 90 percent of farm business management tuition to qualifying farmers. Now in its second year, Tools for Transition is aimed at helping farmers better understand the cost and process of transitioning to organic. Minnesota field crop or dairy farmers who have any acres in transition or who have been certified fewer than three years are eligible to apply, and the program’s leaders are eager to enroll more farmers this year. Participating farmers are giving Tools for Transition the thumbs up. One of the 32 farmers enrolled in the program said farm business management education has helped him understand costs, production possibilities and marginal returns that can make or break a farmer in today’s markets. Farmers in Tools for Transition work directly with a farm business management instructor on a personally designed program to help them understand and better manage their own cost of production, profitability and other financial measures. UMN agricultural economists analyze the data to look for patterns and trends, while carefully protecting the privacy of all participants’ financial information. Program participants get the chance to participate in special workshops and to receive a discount to attend the annual Minnesota Organic Conference. To learn more about the scholarships, call administrator Meg Moynihan at (651) 201-6616. ❖

That fundamental reality still impacts our dairy farms just as it did 100 years ago and puts our dairy farmers at an immediate disadvantage when coming to the negotiating table.” “In response to this fundamental imbalance, our industry has enlisted the government, whether that’s the federal government (federal orders) or a state government (such as California) to act as a “referee” in establishing at least a minimum price that those buyers of milk (including IDFA’s members) must pay for the milk they purchase,” he wrote, “And it’s that government function that IDFA is trying to eliminate.” ■ Finally, the National Milk Producers Federation is expressing concern over a new report on the “anti-competitive practices pervasive in the New Zealand dairy industry.” The report “highlights why the U.S. dairy farmer sector is so concerned with including U.S.-New Zealand dairy trade in a potential Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement,” a federation press release explained, and the issue is one NMPF has communicated to the Obama administration.

Weather talk creeping in

One market on fire; one smoldering

USDA economist: Everything’s roses

The following market analysis is for the week ending Feb. 24. CORN — After yet another Monday holiday, corn was relatively quiet this week with demand providing underlying support and the expectation of a big increase in acreage from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Outlook Forum keeping the lid on the upside. March corn traded entirely within last week’s range, while the December contract traded to five-week lows. There was significant cornbean spreading early in the week, one day favoring sell corn/buy beans, and the next just the opposite. The USDA released PHYLLIS NYSTROM non-survey based 10-year balance Country Hedging sheets at their annual Outlook St. Paul Conference on Feb. 24. The survey based 2012-13 Prospective Plantings report will be released on March 31. The conference’s 2012 corn acreage forecast was 94 million acres, up 2.1 percent from this year’s 91.9 million planted acres and unchanged from the baseline projection. If realized, this will be the biggest corn acreage planted in over 70 years. Using their 164-bushel-per-acre yield estimate (based on a 1990-2010 trendline), production would total 14.27 billion bushels. The 164 bu./acre yield would be the second-highest yield in U.S. history. For that to happen, we will need nearly ideal weather. Corn used for ethanol is forecast to drop 50 million bushels next year to 4.95 billion bushels. Ending stocks for 2012-13 were projected at 1.616 billion bushels, over double this year’s expected carryout. The average farm-gate price for next year was pegged at $5 per bushel. This is much lower than this year’s latest projection of $5.80 to $6.60 per bushel.

The livestock markets are quite the interesting markets these days. One of the markets has been on fire, while the other seems to be content to just smolder. This brings to mind that there might be some major changes in the weeks and months ahead in the livestock industry. The firestorm has been in the cattle market which has continued to make new alltime highs in price on a seemingly regular basis. The most common reason given for the strength has been the reduced numbers of cattle. This may have been the catalyst to get the market moving to the higher prices, but the most prominent reason since the first of the year has been the influx of JOE TEALE speculative money infused into Broker the futures market. Great Plains Commodity Price discovery has not been a Afton, Minn. function of the current fundamentals, but rather the movement in the futures prices that have dictated the price paid in the cash market. The heavy concentration of this speculative money has been to the long side of the market and has overwhelmed the trade into believing that the only direction is up for cattle prices. This is reminiscent of other markets that have moved to extreme levels which are labeled bubble markets. The problem with bubbles is they tend to burst when over-inflated. The fundamentals are a concern at this juncture as packers have been forced to pay higher prices for live inventory, the beef cutouts have not kept up with the costs of the raw product and the profit margin for the packer has disappeared. Because the beef cutout has moved higher the domestic demand for beef has shrunk accordingly. A typical “Catch-22.” On Feb. 24 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The See TEALE, pg. 35A

On Feb. 22 and 23, the U.S. Department of Agriculture held their annual Agricultural Forum. The USDA’s top economist, Joseph Glauber, described a strong farm economy with bright prospects of the next year. He said, “2011 was a very good year for much of U.S. agriculture; we saw record prices for many commodities, record agricultural exports and record farm income. Not surprising, record prices have prompted record production for many commodities and as we saw over the last half of 2011, prices for grains, oilseeds and cotton have come down, reflecting strong production levels.” The USDA projected a 14.27 billion bushel corn crop from 94 TOM NEHER million acres planted. This would AgStar VP & Team Leader be a record that’s enough to — Grain Industry replenish stocks. If this were to Rochester, Minn. occur it would put downward pressure on prices. The USDA is predicting farmers will receive an average price of $5 per bushel in the 2012-13 crop year. This price is the average cash price received at the farm gate. Soybean production is projected 6 percent higher at 3.25 billion bushels due to increased harvested acreage and yield. Planting will be 75 million acres, but the average yield is projected at 43.9 bushels an acre, up 2.4 percent from 2011. Soybean farm prices are expected to drop slightly to an average of $11.50 per bushel. Wheat production in 2012 is expected to increase more than 8 percent to 2.165 billion bushels due to a hike in acreage and yield. The national average wheat yield is projected at 44.5 bushels per acre, up 0.8 bushels from 2011. The stocks-to-use ratio for 2012-13 is projected at 44 percent. The 2012-13 farm prices for all wheat are projected at $6.30 a bushel.

Farmer selling picks up as beans hit new highs April to June time slot. Weekly ethanol production was down 9,000 barrels per day to 919,000 barrels per day, which was better than expected. OUTLOOK: Demand for old crop corn is providing a floor to prices. The uncertainty over how much China may purchase should limit downside ideas. For new crop, weather talk is creeping into everyday conversations and how current snowfall will benefit the soil moisture profile. This winter has been warm and dry, which should lead to early planting, but many areas will need rain once the crop is in. Early planting normally means corn can miss the hottest temperatures when it pollinates, giving it a better shot at higher yields. But I’m not telling you anything you don’t know. New crop will feed off weather and the moving target of soybean carryout. For the week, March corn was down a penny at $6.40 3/4 and the December contract was 10 1/4 cents lower at $5.58 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans continued their trek to $12.90 to $13 this week on good demand and disappointing rainfall in Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul

months coupled with the amount of pork in cold storage, this would back the idea that pork demand is good. Slaughter of hogs is higher than a year ago, and at the same time we have seen only a minor increase in the stocks of pork in storage. Given this fact and that hog numbers are fairly stable, this should reflect on a fairly stable if not an improving outlook for hog prices. The hog market has not seen the money flow into the futures as the cattle have experienced and therefore a much more benign market and a market that is following more closely the underlying fundamentals. If the beef prices move higher, look for pork prices to continue to firm as demand shifts away from beef into the better value pork. Producers should continue to monitor the hog market and protect inventories against any adverse changes in the market conditions. ❖

Country boy looking for answers second highest on record. He suggested that farm asset values are likely to increase 5 percent in the coming year. Glauber said that land prices have appreciated by 20 percent or more in different parts of the country, while farmers’ debt levels are set to rise 4 percent. When I read all of these reports, I think that these folks are much smarter than I ever will become. It all makes my head spin and I feel almost hopeless. Then I remember the sage wisdom of my Grandpa. He would tell me, “Remember that high prices will take care of high prices.” Followed by, “it is always a good idea to buy your straw hats in January.” Then, “it generally doesn’t work to do this year, what I should have done last year.” Frankly, I think those three Grain Angles tell me more than the entire team of USDA economists put together. Or maybe I am just a country boy looking for an answer. ❖

NEHER, from pg. 34A Cotton acreage is expected to decline about 10 percent in 2012 due to lower cotton prices relative to other crops. Acreage for 2012 is projected at 13 million acres. Production however is projected to rise to 17 million bales. Prices are projected at 80 cents a pound for 2012-13. Rice acreage is projected at 2.75 million acres, up 2 percent from 2011.

Hog market stable, if not improving TEALE, from pg. 34A findings were as follows: on-feed, 102 percent; placements, 98 percent and marketed, 102 percent. The report was seen as slightly friendly because of the marketed number. Considering the ramifications of the report it will likely have little effect on the market, since it will depend more on the money flow into or out of the futures in the weeks ahead. Producers should approach the market with skepticism and protect inventories when opportunity presents itself. On the other hand, the hog market has quietly edged higher since the first of the year. Demand for pork has increased due in part to a good export market and an increasing domestic demand. This increase in demand could be the result of the high flying beef cutouts as consumers look for better value in the meat arena. Considering the slaughter rate over the past few

region. Trade chatter contained talk that Brazilian production may fall to 66 mmt to 68 mmt and Argentina to 45 mmt to 47 mmt. The Rosario Exchange cut their soybean production estimate for Argentina from 49.5 mmt to 44.5 mmt due to dry weather. Truckers in Argentina are threatening to strike March 19, which could slow exports. Export line-ups in Brazil also continue to grow. Taking in the problems in South America, we could expect some demand to be pushed back to the United States and could last through the summer. This may also spread to new crop since we’ll need to attract additional acres to soybeans to meet demand. The new crop corn-bean ratio is currently at 2.28. Weekly export sales were a marketing year high of 42.6 million bushels for old crop and 105.5 million bushels for new crop. Total export commitments are running 27 percent behind last year. The USDA Conference’s 75 million soybean acreage projection was supportive to the market in combination of lower South American production figures. The conference’s acreage estimate would be unchanged from 2011-12, but was 1 million acres over the baseline projection. Total production of 3.25 billion bushels is 200 million higher than this year. Yield was pegged at 43.9 bu./acre versus this year’s 41.5 bu./acre yield. Forecasted ending stocks of 205 million are well below this year’s 275 million bushels. Their average farmer price for 2012-13 was $11.50 per bushel versus this year’s $11.10 to $12.30 per bushel estimate. OUTLOOK: Good demand, concern over final yields in South America, and March soybeans were up 11 1/2 cents this week at $12.79 with the November contract up 8 3/4 cents at $12.70 3/4 per bushel. Farmer selling did pick up when soybean prices made new highs for the move which resulted in a slight pull back in basis as we went home for the weekend. Fund buying has contributed to the run-up, keeping a strong uptrend in place. Look for some pull backs, but they should be conservative for the time being. March soybeans closed higher nine out of the last 10 sessions as of Feb. 24.

NYSTROM, from pg. 34A China purchased 120,000 metric tons of U.S. corn this week for delivery in the current marketing year, with speculation that the 110,000 mt of corn sold to unknown destination for this year will also go to China. If the 110,000 mt was China, that would bring China’s purchases of U.S. corn for this year to 3.88 mmt, only slightly less than the USDA 4.0 mmt forecast. China announced this week they were easing their monetary policy by lowering reserve requirements for banks. Easier access to money may lead to on-going imports. Argentina’s Rosario Exchange lowered its corn production to “no more than 20 mmt” when they were predicting 21.4 mmt previously. The last USDA estimate was 22 mmt. Weekly export sales were 33 million bushels for old crop, nothing for new crop. Total export commitments are 8 percent behind last year and roughly on pace to meet the USDA number. Cold weather has severely restricted Ukrainian export shipments, likely pushing up interest in U.S. corn, especially from Japan. It was rumored that Japan bought 1.8 mmt of basis corn out of the United States for the

farm sustainability

Minnesota farmers can apply for low-interest loans to help them adopt practices that will lead them to a more sustainable system.The Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Sustainable Agriculture Loan Program provides loans for capital purchases to help farmers diversify their operations or implement environmentally sound practices. Individual farmers are eligible to receive up to $40,000 in loans for the purchase of new or used equipment and/or facilities. For joint projects, each individual is eligible for $40,000 with a maximum of $160,000 per project. The interest rate for the loan is 3 percent over a five- or seven-year period. MDA’s Sustainable Ag Loan Program spokesman, Wayne Monsen, said the program has issued more than $3.6 million in loans to more than 340 Minnesota farmers since it began in 1989. Eligible purchases or improvements may include equipment needed to transition to or expand organic production; fencing and water systems for rotational grazing; manure handling; improvements to livestock facilities; hoop buildings or other low-cost livestock facilities; and onfarm value-added processing. A technical review committee evaluates the applications based on their potential to increase farm profitability and benefit the environment. For an application or additional information, log on to the MDA website www.mda.state.mn.us and click on “Grants, Loans, and Financing,” or contact Wayne Monsen, (651) 201-6260, or wayne.monsen@state.mn.us. ❖

ne hundred and thirty-years mother asteroid before it entered the earth’s atmosphere, broke O after the Estherville meteorite crashed into farm fields near into three large boulder sized this northwest Iowa town, a piece of the meteorite returned home. That was in 2009. “We bought a piece of it from an auction house in Scotland,” said Renee Stowell, of the Estherville Chamber of Commerce. “It’s fairly large. People can view it in the Chamber office.” The Estherville Chamber paid $11,000 for their piece of the meteorite. Rocks from heaven have always been valuable. One reason for that is that many of them have previously unknown minerals in them. The Estherville meteorite is made up of iron, nickel, phosphorus and sulfur. These are all common minerals. But, if you visit the lower level of the Estherville public library, you’ll see the sparkle of Esthervillite. Under glass, and framed by wood, glitters a cross section of a piece of the meteorite. Some of that silvery mineral imbedded in that rough-edged coal black rock is Esthervillite. It had never been seen by science before it came flaming to ground on May 10, 1879. Esthervillite is not of this Earth. Where did that mystery mineral come from? How long has it been separated from its

pieces, and hit the earth with a thump heard for miles around? Where is the mother asteroid? What else is on it that is unknown to us? Estherville was lucky to get a piece of its meteorite back. Almost as soon as the rocks hit the ground, the scramble to market this strange manna began. The meteorite broke into thousands of tiny pieces and three large pieces of 431, 151 and 106 pounds. An Estherville lawyer gained possession of the largest piece and sold it to the British Museum for a grand sum. The British in turn sold parts of it to French and Austrian museums. Other parts of the meteorite ended up in museums across the United States, including a museum at the University of Minnesota. None remained in Estherville. Then, in 1939 the U of M loaned Estherville the slice that’s in the library. In 1980, since Estherville did not own its own piece of the meteorite, the Area Arts Council commissioned a sculpture. The resulting sculpture, by Tom Gibbs of Dubuque, Iowa, shows the meteorite fracturing into those three pieces. The sculpture is in Library Square. ❖
