What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other

half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” On behalf of The Land staff, to those of you facing inevitable flood waters, our prayers are with you. You will once again persevere through this incredible challenge. ••• Dick Hagen is staff writer of The Land. He may be reached at dickhagen@mvtvwireless.com.

MINDS, from pg. 2 Minnesota Farmers Union provided a colorful handout depicting the “Farmer’s Share of Retail Food Dollar” for 15 grocery items. For example the farmer’s share of a one-pound carton of $4.39 bacon is 55 cents, and 15 cents of a $3.39 loaf of bread. “Too often the farmer gets blamed for high food costs but that just isn’t so. Farmers and ranchers receive only 20 cents of every food dollar that consumers spend on food,” Zenk said. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture studies, off-farm costs including marketing, processing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing account for the other 80 cents of that food dollar. Mark Grasmon, store manager at Terry’s, indicated the store’s share of that food dollar is also a small amount, generally 20 cents or less. Like Food Shelves everywhere, the demand keeps increasing year by year. In 2007, the Renville County Food Shelf assisted 2,091 families involving 7,775 individuals and 117,640 pounds of food was given out. In 2010, the county helped 2,426 families involv-

Jeesh. The letter also explains that the Committee, when not skinning the EPA, will “‘audit’ or inventory” all policies under its “jurisdiction” to prepare to write the 2012 farm bill. This effort will, of course, necessitate “field hearings” — trips to, say, key ag districts in Oklahoma during football season and maybe even Minnesota districts during pheasant season — so “affected groups” can help “establish the framework” on which “programs need to be eliminated or consolidated.” Golly, why have hearings anywhere on anything if you already know that “programs need to be eliminated or consolidated”? Oh, that’s right; football and pheasants. After Lucas and Peterson signed, sealed and sent the Committee letter to the budget chairman March 15, the full House approved, according to the House Appropriations Committee, another $358 million in cuts to USDA’s yet-to-be-enacted 2011 budget.

Forty thousand researchers and clinicians have just written to the journal Science — through their professional societies — asking for broader and quicker testing of “new chemicals in our environment.” Eight societies, including the geneticists, endocrinologists, developmental biologists and others say that 12,000 new substances are being registered with the America Chemical Society every day. They admit that not many of these “new substances” will ever make it into the environment. Still, the societies are asking the federal government to broaden testing beyond toxicology, into such unproven dangers as trace levels of bodily toxins and potential endocrine disruption. This would, of course, employ far more of the learned societies’ members. Do these professional societies think they have learned a lesson from the cli-

mate modelers? To whit: if you want more of your members profitably employed, get the Feds to give them lots of nice, salaried government jobs with hefty retirements — to solve some newly concocted media-driven scare The public is always looking for another scare to tickle their fear genes and the congress will happily fund such projects, with your money.

Letter: Who is Dennis Avery and why should we listen to him? To the Editor: Who is Dennis Avery? Why is he so concerned because a few smaller family farms refuse to just go away and make way for a “better” agriculture dominated completely by biotech, chemicals and corporate factory farms? He claims organic farms only produce 1 percent of our food, yet he seems to feel that somehow they are “threatening the whole world’s food production future.” Again, I ask who is Dennis Avery? Who is the Hudson Institute he claims to represent. He is also a director for the Center for Global Food Issues. Who are they? I won’t go into a whole lot of detail, but anyone with a computer and a little curiosity can follow the money and see where it leads. Avery has a long history of making questionable claims about a variety of subjects relating to agriculture and climate, and a lot of the information he puts out is not all that credible. One of the things we were taught in history class was that dictators are able to make people believe unbelievable things by repeating them over and over again. With that in mind, maybe it’s time to cut back on Avery’s divisive drivel and devote more publication space to some of the more important issues agriculture is facing, like how do we create an agriculture that can support more farm families instead of fewer? How do we keep our small towns prosperous? How do we keep our schools and churches going? How do we keep our young people from leav-

OPINION

ing? How do we slow the loss of good farmland to urban sprawl and development? If current trends continue, who are you going to send The Land to? A few hundred corporate managers? There is a worldwide land rush from the non-farm investment community to take control of farmland and food production assets. For this to take place, “human resources” are being removed from agriculture all across the globe. Yes, in other words, farmers. Again, please don’t just take my word, but get on the internet and do a little research. Check out large land investments in Africa, Asia, Australia and South America and see what effect it is expected to have on independent farmers. If you want a real eye

opener, research Indian farmer suicides. Isn’t it about time we start building an agriculture that’s based on something besides the greed-based system Avery and his corporate sponsors are so proud of? Our future food production system will be a direct result of what we as farmers and consumers do today. Should we leave our future food security in the hands of a greed-based system of fewer and fewer corporate-sponsored “growers”? Or, should we insist that both consumers and independent farmers have a voice in what’s for dinner? Where did it come from? How was it grown? Don Koep Clitherall, Minn.

Distractions from the real issues AVERY, from pg. 7 player.” I managed to resist the invitation, but I did go on the web to look at the detox alternatives out there. Some of them were outright shilling for organic farming: • “Most of the animals we eat are raised on factory farms. Seek a butcher shop where organically farmed meat is sold. It will be more expensive, perhaps that will help curb your consumption.” • “Our crops of fruits and eatables are mass farmed ... have led to less nutrient-rich food products. ... Organically farmed food will really boost your nutrient intake.”

Call Mike’s at 507-233-4470

• “Our water supply is also filled with impurities such as lead, rust and chlorine ... purchase a Brand X water filter. ... It is critical to your health”... Then there are the product-pushers: Toxin detox capsules; Detox blood purifier capsules with Goldenseal, a potent, cleansing herbal combination; Liver Renew Capsules; and the Hot Seaweed Bath three-packs. My favorite is the website of the ayurvedic healing system from India. “You need this ‘renewal’ periodically if you feel ‘a general lack of zest for life’, feel ‘spaced out’; if you have ‘a general sense of malaise’.” Naturally, they recommend cleansing your system under the care of an ayurvedic physician. Some of the advice they give is actually pretty sound: Stick to lighter, easier-to-digest foods, and eat lots of cleansing fruits and vegetables. However, their “detoxifying tea” is probably just tea. I prefer to heed the wisdom of Dr. Graham Colditz, a cancer epidemiologist from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, on the occasion of another cancer scare report being delivered to President Obama last May. “We already know what causes most cases of cancer, and it’s not pollution or chemicals lurking in our water bottles. It’s tobacco use and other unhealthy behaviors. ... Maybe up to 4 percent of cancer in the western world is caused by contaminants and pollution and yet we are chasing new, unknown causes. ... The damage is it distracts us, as a society, from actually acting on the things that are already in our grasp.” He mentioned giving up smoking, eating a pound of fruits and vegetables per person per day (cutting cancer risk by 25 percent), drinking less alcohol and eating less red meat. Thanks to our secure and safe food and water supply and world-class access to modern medicine, we are living long enough to get the diseases associated with old age. As baby boomers see 65 in the rear view mirror, they may treasure the remaining years enough to take Colditz’s advice. ••• This commentary was submitted by Dennis Avery, a senior fellow for the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., and the director for the Center for Global Food Issues.

Cover story: Slayton draft horse show powers on Murray County (Minn.) Classic now in its fifth year By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent The Murray County Classic Draft Horse Show will be five years old this summer, and already it is one of the best draft horse shows in the Midwest. On the second weekend in July, 14 six-horse hitches will compete at the Murray County Fairgrounds in Slayton, Minn. It is an Joe Biren impressive display. The Percheron, Belgian, Clydesdale and Shire horses will pull highclass wagons and wear their finest harness. Even their hooves will be polished. The premier event of the show is the six-horse hitch, but there are also classes of four-horse hitch, unicorn hitch (three horses), team and single-horse carts. Last year area farm teams also put on an exhibition. Joe Biren, one of the founding fathers of the Murray County Classic, has been the chairperson from the beginning. He is also one of the Biren family members who drives their Belgians in shows. The idea grew from conversations following a show in which he had driven. “We all had the same problem,” Biren said. “There are a number of hitches that are year-round; they have a crew and that’s all they do. Year-round they work out with the horses. Then you have a number of family operations where they start working with them in the summertime and try to get them ready. We kind of felt there was a need for an early show. That way you can get in the ring and get the kinks See DRAFT HORSE, pg. 11

That’s a total of 84 large draft horses, and many teams bring spares. “We worked with the Murray County Commissioners to get it set up to house that many horses at the Murray County Fairgrounds,” Biren said. “The county has worked with us quite nicely.”

DRAFT HORSE, from pg. 10 worked out right away.” Draft horse shows typically run from July through October, and the Murray County Classic is one of the first of the season. In addition to being an early show where they can get “the kinks worked out,” another draw is that the Murray County Classic is a double point show. You might compare it to a double-header. Teams can win points in the Saturday show, and again in the Sunday show. “The points really add up fast at a show like ours,” Biren said. That’s important on a circuit where points have become valuable. The top four hitches in each breed are invited to a championship every year. What is impressive is not only the horses themselves, but that a group of local volunteers has been able to pull off such a large show — in fact, one of the

The maintenance and everything is more expensive on the big horse — the feed, equipment, horses shows.” So why do folks do it? Basic to it all is the love of horses. That’s how the Biren family got into it. His dad loved horses. “My dad (LeRoy) was given a first anniversary present by my mom (JoAnn), a Belgian mare,” Biren said.

Personality influences your relationship — with your horse According to Lynch, “Heartfelt leadership with your horse means learning how your emotions influence whether your horse sees you as having the capacity to be their leader. As prey animals, horses are looking for a leader that will help them feel safe. Often the misbehavior we see in our horses is due to our behavior and our emotional state but we blame the horse. Sometimes we feel like a predator to our horse. At Epala we ask, ‘Are you a mountain lion or a herd leader with your horse?’ At Epala ‘connection’ refers to learning to ‘read’ horse language at the subtlest of levels in order to understand why horses behave the way they do. ‘Respect’ refers to estab-

lishing a partnership with your horse, not dominance. Anybody who rides, shows or spends time with horses will agree that to get the most out of your horse you need to lead and listen, set boundaries and allow expression, be clear and be creative.” Log on to www.mnhorseexpo.org or call (877) 462-8758 for the Horse Expo event schedule including clinicians’ times and topics, information about Coliseum arena demonstrations, PRCA rodeos, daily admission, hours and more.

How early to plant soybeans in northwest Minnesota?

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency urges home and business owners to think about potential spring flooding and to walk through the house, garage and sheds to gather up unwanted or expired household products that could become hazardous waste if flooded. Take batteries, solvents, paints, paint thinners, pesticides, household cleaners and other chemicals that you no longer need to your county’s household hazardous waste facility. Store products you plan to keep in a place that is not likely to be flooded. After the flood, any products exposed to floodwaters must be considered contaminated and will need to be disposed of properly. Minnesota residents can find their household hazardous waste facilities at www.pca.state.mn.us/udgx572. More information about minimizing pollution and health risks from flooding is available on the MPCA’s website at www.pca.state.mn.us/hot/floods.html.

result in only a 10-percent chance that the air temperature will drop below 28 degrees at soybean emergence. When environmental factors are favorable (soil temperature and moisture), northern soybean producers should be ready to capitalize on them even if the calendar has not turned the page to May.

Early planting increased the dry matter yield and number of nodes and branches per plant; however, this did not always translate into increased yield. Yield results were variable for early planting (April 10 to May 15), with yield penalties of 0 to 5 percent or up to 3 bushels per acre. Average yield penalties for late planting (late May to early June) averaged 5 to 26 percent or 3 to 16 bushels per acre. Populations were not significantly impacted by early planting and delayed emergence. There was a 1.1-percent increase in oil content and a 0.7-percent decrease in protein content with early versus late planting of soybean. The main environmental factor contributing to whether the early or the late relative maturity out yielded each other was related to the amount of precipitation received in August. A dry August favored the early relative maturity soybean. Freezing temperatures were not encountered in any of the five years of the trials. The recent trends of a more sub-tropical climate extending further north into Minnesota place the odds more favorable for early planting to be successful. Pushing the planting window ahead to April 21 versus May 10-15 for the Crookston region may

THE LAND, MARCH 25, 2011

Producers have been asking about the idea of early soybean planting in northern Minnesota as soybean production pushes further north. Soybean acreage has dramatically increased with better-yielding varieties and the introduction of glyphosate-tolerant soybeans. To answer the question “How early do we dare plant soybeans in northwest Minnesota?” University of Minnesota Extension carried out a five-year (2006-10) research project with grant funding from the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council. We found that with soybean following sugar beets in a rotation, the soil is dry enough to facilitate early planting, and that early planting could increase dry matter accumulation and the number of nodes and branches on the plant. These factors ultimately lead to increased yields. The drawback to early planting was the risk of spring frost killing the soybean crop if seeded too early. The research took place in Crookston over five growing seasons, and included weekly planting of two soybean varieties with relative maturities of 00.9 and 0.4 planted on eight consecutive weeks. Planting started as soon as the soil was fit in the spring, which ranged from April 10 in 2010 to April 26 in 2009 with an average first planting date of April 19. Planting continued for 10 weeks in 2010. Each year, we collected data on these factors: days from planting to emergence, hourly soil temperature, hourly air temperature, population, dry matter yield, oil percentage, protein percentage, moisture and grain yield.

Precautions prevent fuel tank problems in flooding The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency urges Minnesotans to prepare their fuel oil, gasoline and other petroleum tanks for the flooding expected this spring. This will reduce damage that spilled petroleum products wreak on property and buildings as well as reduce damage to the environment. Because water is heavier than fuel,

floodwater can enter buried tanks, displacing the fuel. Farmers and other rural residents who have underground fuel storage tanks should make sure their tanks are vented above the height of potential floodwater. “The best way to prepare above-ground fuel storage tanks for a flood is to have them emptied,” MPCA Emergency

Responder Walt Haas said. “If that is not possible or practical, the tanks should be secured to concrete anchors in the ground so they cannot float away. “If floodwater comes into contact with unsecured fuel oil tanks in basements, it will cause them to become unstable, tip over and/or float on the surface of the water. If a tank’s vent, fill pipe or other openings are not watertight, floodwater will enter the tank and displace the fuel into the home or office. In addition to creating fire and environmental hazards, the fuel will be absorbed by any porous material it comes in contact with, such as carpet, wood, cinder block and drywall. Once that happens, fuel vapors may persist in the building indefinitely.” If floodwaters are forecast to be high enough at your home or office to cause your tank to tip over or float: Contact a bulk fuel distributor to remove the fuel from the tank before flooding begins, and plug its vent and fill pipes. Although this

will make the tank more buoyant in floodwater, it will prevent or reduce leakage of fuel into a home or office should floodwater tip the tank over or enter the tank through an opening. If the tank is no longer in service, remove the unused equipment, including all piping, and seal the vent and fill openings. Secure the tank so that it will remain upright if floodwater causes it to float. The tank may float like a bobber if your basement floods, so anything used to secure the tank must be able to withstand these buoyant forces. Also, the fill and vent must be plugged to prevent water from entering the tank and displacing the fuel. More information on what to do before and after floods to minimize risks to health and damage to property and the environment is on the MPCA’s website at www.pca.state.mn.us/hqzq7fe. ••• This article was submitted by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.


A new industry quietly keeps ramping up in Minnesota. In 1990, Minnesota had eight grape growers. Today, there are nearly 600 vineyards. In 1997, Minnesota had three licensed wineries. Today there are 31. Today the Minnesota wine and grape industry is a $40 million business. In Iowa, Tourism and Economic Development groups have made Iowa vineyards and Iowa wineries a major business. And for good reason. Studies by Iowa State University indicate this relatively “new industry” has a $230 million impact. The data showed that for each $1 spent on “Iowa wine,” $34 is cycled through the economy. If the “grape growing fever” is catching you, a good starting point is the publication, “Growing Grapes in Minnesota.” Now in its eighth edition, this booklet is available through the Minnesota Grape Growers Association.

ically designed to be a complement to food. “It’s not just about making a local product,” Zeller said. “We’re passionate about what we do. We’re serious about making great quality wines; we’re not just trying to put sweet wine on the table. You have to try it, pair it with food correctly. If you do, you’ll be coming back for our wines all over the state.” The panel also suggested that wineries capitalize on their unique purpose. “The ability to explain where this wine

comes from, why it matters, who created it, where the grapes came from,” Lee Zukor said, “all those things fill out a story that’s really interesting to the chefs and restaurant owners. It’s not just about the product, it’s about the story that connects people to the product.” Zukor, of Minneapolis, is the founder of Simple, Good and Tasty, a web-based business focused on helping providers of good food connect with consumers. One way to do that is to make a greater effort to get people out to the wineries — especially while the law is

on their side. “Wineries have the edge over breweries right now,” said Dan Schwarz, who recently launched Lift Bridge Brewing Co. in Stillwater, Minn. “To be able to get people to your place and see how you make your product, and then sell them a glass or a bottle of wine to go, is illegal in Minnesota for breweries. But not for wineries. People can sit and soak up the experience that much more. Even if you can’t afford to staff a tasting room all the time, set some hours and use social media to get the word out.”

Investigate end market before diving head-first WINE, from pg. 17 But excitement prevails with over 1,000 acres of Marquette already in the fertile soils of Minnesota and more vineyards sprouting each year. Wedge said, “There’s no such thing as oversupply of high-quality fruit. Sometimes the responsibility is for us winemakers to come up with new flavor styles, new uses for these Minnesota varieties. We started our winery in 2002 and at the time were the 10th winery in Minnesota. The first Minnesota winery dates back to 1978. This spring Minnesota will have 32 wineries.” He remains confident about the future of the Minnesota wine industry. An informal “hand count” at the Cold Climate Conference sponsored by the Minnesota Grape Growers Association showed only about 25 percent were first timers. “That tells me that most growers attend each year and view this as their opportunity for more ‘professionalism’ in their business. This is a tremendous educational event with speakers from across the country, both specialists in growing grapes and specialists in making wine. Plus great marketing sessions on how to sell, how to promote, how to keep your vineyard healthy,” Wedge said. About 60 vendors exhibiting a variety of vineyard equipment, wine making tools and pesticide information added to the professional flavor of the conference. Some attend just to see if this is an opportunity. New faces are always welcome but Wedge suggested that before a potential grower starts up, check with local wineries for market access. He complimented the quality of

research and instruction at the University of Minnesota Horticultural Research Station near the U of M Arboretum. Staff members include Peter Hemstad, Jim Luby, Katie Cook and John Thull, manager of the 12acre vineyard which includes about 10,000 experimental vines. Currently more than 100 U of M advanced selections are being tested, as well as more than 400 cultivars and selections from other breeding programs. The Grape Growers Association estimates there are now over 300 vineyards in Minnesota, and Minnesota wines are available virtually everywhere. Fieldstone Vineyards for example has products in nearly 200 Minnesota retail outlets plus 16 Minnesota restaurants. Iowa now has 90 wineries. But Iowa has a different situation. “In Iowa politics at the local level drives the market,” said Mike White, Iowa State University Extension viticulturist. For example wine can be bought from grocery stores as well as liquor markets. In essence the “liquor lobby” at the State Capital in Iowa doesn’t carry the same clout as it does in Minnesota. Plus for a $25 fee, wine-tasting events are often part of public functions throughout the state. Wedge spoke at the recent Cold Climate Conference sponsored by the Minnesota Grape Growers Association. For more information about U of M grape work, log on to www.grapes.umn.edu.

DAIRYLINE, from pg. 20 feed prices for most producers. Corn prices in 2010-11 are expected to be high by historic standards, averaging $5.15 to $5.65 per bushel for the crop year. The USDA did not revise the corn supply, demand and price forecast this month. The soybean meal price is forecast to average $340 to $370 a ton in 2010-11, and this month’s forecast was revised downward slightly. Feed ingredient prices could push the 16-percent mixed ration value up by more than $2/cwt. from the $7.25 calculated for 2010. Milk yield per cow rose by nearly 2.8 percent in 2010 and is forecast to climb by only slightly more than 1 percent in 2011, a rate much closer to longterm trend. Downward revisions in output per cow in late-2010 and slower than expected growth in January contribute to the forecast. Along with this, dairy cow slaughter has been trending upward since last fall, based on year-earlier comparisons. The higher implied culling, along with an ample supply of dairy heifers, suggests that herd freshening may be underlying the expansion, and the introduction of a greater number of heifers could also slow the growth rate in milk per cow in 2011 as the younger cows typically will not hit their production stride in the first lactation, according to the USDA. ■ The Cooperatives Working Together program accepted 12 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Darigold and Foremost Farms to sell a total of 2.9 million pounds of cheese abroad this week. Details are posted at www.dairyline.com. ■ The NMPF also praised the long-awaited arrival of the promotion checkoff on dairy imports. The USDA finalized its regulation Friday. We’ll have details in the future. ••• Lee Mielke is the host of “DairyLine,” broadcast on more than 90 radio stations coast to coast, and writes a column by the same name which is printed in 11 weekly newspapers.

Prepare your livestock operation for spring floods The impact of a natural disaster on a community always makes headlines. If you happen to be a livestock farmer, the impact on you seldom makes headlines, but it makes a big impact on you, your livestock and the viability of your operation. “Many natural disasters give you little or no warning, but flooding is usually forecast, giving farmers time to think about contingency plans and take action,” said Chuck Schwartau, a

livestock educator with University of Minnesota Extension. Questions for planning Your specific plan of action will vary by the type of livestock operation, but there are many common questions to address if flooding is a possibility at your farmstead or livestock facility. Schwartau recommends that you consider these questions for your livestock operation.

Tastes like chicken? Sampling the gamut of wild game I’ll give my wife credit. Most gals who grew up in a non-hunting family might harbor serious reservations about sampling wild game. But after being married to a hunter for so many years, she’s developed a real sense of adventure about sampling wild things. So when I told her I was going to whip up a batch of chili using the pound of bear burger a friend recently

gave me, her response was “sounds good to me.” Having never sampled bear and despite assurances from my bear-hunting friend that it was excellent table fare, I harbored a few more reservations than she did. However, it turned out just fine. In fact, it was quite good. One of the great things about hunting and fishing is the dividends that are paid at the end of our outdoor adventures. Sit-

Newborns evoke a smile and the birth of a foal is no different. Horse owners greatly anticipate the birth of a foal and are wise to prepare the mare for the birth. “On average, a mare is pregnant 340 days before giving birth,” said Glennon Mays, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. “But, mare pregnancies can range from 315 to 387 days.” “Preparation for foaling should begin prior to the birth,” Mays said. “Daily exercise will help the mare in foal tone body muscles and maintain a healthy heart and lungs which can benefit the mare and foal during birthing.”

During the first eight months of pregnancy your mare can maintain nutritional balance on good pasture, quality hay, feed and minerals supplements, but the last three months of pregnancy require dietary changes, Mays said. The unborn foal doubles in size during the last 90 days. Consequently, there is a great need for more protein, minerals and vitamins to support the foal’s growth. Additionally, the mare needs more nutrients to prepare for lactation. Quality roughage should be the major portion of your mare’s diet. “Grain should be reduced the week See PET TALK, pg. 27


Vet: Mares prefer privacy when they are foaling If the foal requires assistance to stand, remember the young bones are soft. Aggressive handling can compromise bone structure, especially at the rib cage. Don’t rush in to “help.” Give the foal and mare some time alone unless foal distress is obvious, Mays said. Mother Nature has done quite well for a long time without human intervention. The foal should stand without assistance within an hour, start nursing within three hours and nurse at least once every hour. Some veterinarians prefer to do com-

plete blood count and chemistry on the foal after 12 hours to determine if it received enough colostrum (and therefore antibodies) to help keep it healthy. It is important that the foal build immunity to fight exposure to bacteria in its new environment. ••• Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

“Mares prefer privacy when they are foaling and the majority of mares foal at night,” Mays said. “This could be a survival trait that ensured the mare and foal would be less susceptible to predators during the birthing process when horses were in the wild.” Appropriate foaling facilities assure a safe and sanitary environment for the mare and her foal. This may be a grassy paddock or pasture small enough with sufficient lighting to allow visualization of the mare for monitoring the birth process. Mares having difficulty with the delivery process may need assistance. Foals are born two front feet first and then their nose follows. Any deviation from this warrants a call to your veterinarian. “The mare is in active labor for about 30 minutes and once the foal is born, both mare and foal may lie quiet for another 30 minutes,” Mays said.

PET TALK, from pg. 26 before foaling,” Mays said. “Oats and bran are good feed choices at this time since they will help decrease the likelihood of constipation. After foaling, grain can be increased gradually to resume full ration.” Regular worming will ensure that the mare will not contaminate the pasture and foaling stall with worm larvae that the foal can ingest, Mays said. “Consult your veterinarian about recommended vaccinations for your pregnant mare. Generally, six weeks prior to the foaling date, the mare should receive a tetanus vaccination to boost the antibodies in her colostrum (first milk). A mare will only produce colostrum for the first six to 12 hours after birth, after that she will produce milk. The colostrum helps protect the foal against disease and aids in eliminating fecal material which can build up in its intestinal tract,” Mays said.

Unless you run a nursery, hold off on planting tomatoes Can I be planting my tomato seeds at this time? In most cases it is better to wait until the second week in April to plant tomato seeds, unless you are growing the plants for future sales, such as at a greenhouse and nursery. In the long run, however, it’s best to buy already started plants from a nursery. When doing so, make sure to check the condition of the plants, and check that there are actually four plants in a ACE OF SPADES carton of four. By Hank Wessels With all of the snow we’ve had, should I be pruning my fruit trees at this time? Normally this is the best time to do the pruning of all fruit trees, but you should wait until the snow melts. You will have more, and better, fruit if you prune your fruit trees. Visit your nearest Extension office to get a pamphlet on pruning fruit trees; most Extension offices have these available. When should I apply crystal softener or pickling salt to my asparagus bed for weed and grass control? Once the snow is melted on your asparagus bed, it’s time to make the first application. About two weeks later — normally the first or second week in April — apply the second application of salt. Make sure you apply this before any asparagus spears have emerged. Apply about the same thickness of salt as you spread fertilizer in your garden. When is the best way and time to start a new asparagus bed? There are two ways in starting an asparagus bed. One way is to buy the roots and plant them at least 8 inches deep in the soil. The easiest way, however, is to plant them as seeds, which are available at some stores. You may need to ask for them. Feel free to e-mail me at hwdw@cccinternet.net for a place where we purchased some seeds about four years ago. You do not use the spears until the third year, and then pull the spears sparingly until the fourth year. ■ Correction from my last column: Prune oak trees from November until mid-March; don’t prune between March and October. ••• Hank Wessels is a Master Gardener in Watonwan County.

Grain Outlook Markets watching Asian world

The livestock markets are still proving to be unpredictable and extremely volatile as we work our way through the first few weeks of March. This volatility and unpredictability are not expected to retreat from these markets in the near future. The cattle market has been and still is on a mission to move to higher prices. Not based on fundamentals as much as it is following the influx of speculative money into the marketplace, the futures are the main driving force behind the strength in prices. Considering that there are more cattle on feed than a year ago and export business is only slightly greater and domestic consumption is JOE TEALE declining, the facts are not supportBroker ing this sharp increase in prices. Great Plains Commodity Afton Grilling season is just around the corner and retailers are expected to make some advanced purchases of beef which will keep the cutouts supported. However, with the price the packers are paying for cattle currently, the beef cutout will have to rise considerably higher than it is currently. The problem here is that each time we have seen the beef cutout rise above the current $170 per hundredweight level, retailers have resisted expanding their purchases. With the amount of beef in cold storage increasing last month and market-ready cattle expected to increase in the next several weeks, the current rally may be in jeopardy in the weeks ahead. To anticipate where and how the price will move in the near-term will depend on several factors which are the flow of speculative money, exports and domestic demand, with the emphasis on the flow of money. Producers

The world certainly is brimming with volatility as Libya continues to boil in civil turmoil, coupled with the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that has rocked the world. The news out of Japan is horrific and unimaginable. Fears of nuclear “meltdowns” and many thousands feared dead, leaves the world markets churning with uncertainty. In my last column, I asked the question if a “baby black swan” had been born in Libya. Little did I know that such grave events were just around the corner in Japan? We still do not know how this will TOM NEHER all play out in the markets, but we have seen a short-term correction AgStar VP Agribusiness & Grain Specialist to the downside in commodities. Rochester As we try to understand how these events impact the supply and demand of commodities, we are left with many unanswered questions. Japan was the second largest importer of crude oil in the world, how will these events effect their consumption? They are a major import market for U.S. pork, corn and soybeans. Will this impact their ability to logistically handle the imports? What will these events do for the demand for cement, steel, copper, lumber and other building materials? Could these events spur employment opportunities for foreign workers or companies? Will Japan look to U.S. companies and labor or will they look for less expensive labor elsewhere? If there ever was a picture of volatility, we are looking at it today.

The following market analysis is for the week ending March 18. CORN — It’s been a week since the earthquaketsunami combination hit Japan and it’s still uncertain what the outcome will be for the nuclear reactors. Workers continue to battle a nuclear reactor meltdown by showering it with sea water by helicopter and any other way they can. At last report, three of six reactors are said to be relatively stable and radiation levels have fallen. They are now working to restore electricity, and if successful, hopefully the cooling system could be restarted.

It was reported that up to 200,000 metric tons of corn were being delayed at unload at Japanese ports. Ships that were bound for the northern ports will likely be diverted to ports in the southern part of the country. As background on how important Japan is as a grain trading partner, they are the world’s largest importer of corn (the largest importer of U.S. corn), the third biggest importer of soybeans in the world, and the fourth in line on world wheat imports. Fund selling swamped the market in the first half of the week before end-users came in as buyers.

TEALE, from pg, 29 should continue to approach the market with some skepticism and consider taking some price protection on this current rally. The hog market has already run into some resistance despite the fact that recent positive events such as South Korea announcing the resumption of importing U.S. pork products.

was 2.135 million acres lower than their last soybean number. Their survey indicates there will be 75.269 million acres of soybeans planted in the United States this spring. This compares to 77.4 million acres that were planted last year. While the acreage number is less than what the trade was expecting, the world is well supplied. Events in the Middle East/North Africa had a significant change on Friday when Libya declared an immediate cease fire. This occurred after the United Nations had voted to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and authorized “all necessary measures” to protect Libyan civilians. In Bahrain, Shiite opposition leaders were arrested. China raised their banks’ reserve rate by 1/2 percent on March 18, the third increase this year. This was largely ignored by the trade prior to Informa’s acreage estimates and in light of Brazil’s wet harvest conditions. OUTLOOK: May soybeans took out the February low support this week, but the next support at $11.83 remains intact. Outside influences should continue to exert their presence over the soybean market. And last, but certainly not least, let’s not lose sight of current events in the Middle East and North Africa. May soybeans were up 28 cents at $13.62 1/2 this week. This week’s low at $12.70 is support with first resistance at $14.24 1/2. The November soybean contract was 34 cents higher at $13.34 for the week.

supplies of pork product in the recent U.S. Department of Agriculture Cold Storage Report. As in the cattle, money has been an important factor in the price movement of the hog market during the past several months. Pork cuts have been able to maintain above the $90/cwt. level for some time which reflects the better demand for pork. The problem may now come from the fact that with the recent earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan, the export business may be temporarily lighter until Japan recovers from these events. Considering the large premiums in the futures, producers should consider protecting spring and summer inventories.

Remember today is not to be taken for granted NEHER, from pg. 29 While the world seems so confusing, the snow continues to melt in Minnesota and Iowa. The hours of sunlight in a day are growing longer and we wake up to sounds of birds singing outside our windows. Spring is working her way into our lives and the promise of rebirth in the soil sparks our spirits. In a few short weeks we will be looking at putting steel to the earth in the hopes of a new crop to feed a hungry world. This is our responsibility and opportunity as we are charged as stewards of the earth’s resources. Our blessings abound as we see the sunrise on a new day. With this dichotomy of a world rolling in volatility and

the hope of a new day, we find ourselves feeling rather dazed. We must stay centered and focused on the things in our lives we have some control over and have faith in a higher power to handle those things beyond our control. When we look at the things that we can control, we must focus on production, risk management and margin management. The fact that we have a great deal of control over our attitude and outlook stares at us as we look into the mirror. Each day that we are given the blessings of life, is put into perspective when we look at the lives shattered in Japan. Remember those that are most important to you and let them know the hope of a new day is a gift not to be taken for granted.

The landowner does not have to negotiate land rental rates, or worry about collecting lease payments, since the

Many factors go into custom farming agreements PROGRAMS, from pg. 31 Key issues with custom farming agreements Although the concept of a Custom Farming Agreement is simple, close communication between the custom operator and the landowner is essential. A written contract for the Custom Farming Agreement should definitely be prepared that specifies the amount of payment by the landowner to the custom operator, and all other pertinent details. Following are some points to consider for a Custom Farming Agreement. • The Custom Farming Agreement should specify the payment amount per acre that the landowner will pay the custom operator, and should list the payment dates. • There needs to be an accurate count on the number of acres that will be under the Custom Farming Agreement for payment purposes, and so that the farmer can accurately plan tillage, planting and harvesting schedules. • The normal field practices to be included

under the Custom Farming Agreement should be listed (tillage, planting, weed control, harvesting, etc.). Typically, these agreed upon practices are part of the per acre custom farming payment for the year that is negotiated between the custom operator and the landowner. • Additional tillage trips or replanting due to weather conditions, or added spraying applications of pesticides to control weeds, insects or diseases, which are provided by the custom operator, are usually charged to the landowner at a custom rate per acre that is over and above the base custom farming rate. • Timing of planting and harvesting operations should be discussed and negotiated between the custom operator and the landowner prior to the growing season. This can become a tenuous issue, especially in years with challenging weather conditions. • The custom operator may be asked for advice by the landowner regarding the seed corn hybrid or soybean variety to plant, fertilizer rates, chemical appli-

cations, levels of crop insurance coverage, or grain marketing decisions. However, the final decisions on these items lie with the landowner, and the custom operator needs to be careful not to take responsibility for the final authority on those decisions. • Typically, the harvested grain of the landowner is delivered by the custom operator to a farm storage facility owned or rented by the landowner, or to an agreed upon area grain elevator, as part of the Custom Farming Agreement. Any grain deliveries beyond the local area usually result in the landowner paying an extra custom rate charge for grain hauling. Also, if the landowner uses the custom operator’s grain drying and handling facilities, there is typically an added charge for these services. ••• Kent Thiesse is a government farm programs analyst and a vice president at MinnStar Bank in Lake Crystal, Minn.

Never too late to establish a budget Many producers have inputs preordered or prepaid. Most have a good idea of what the crop year will cost and now all that’s left to do is wait for the snow to melt and wait for planting season to begin. According to specialists, however, this time of the year can show a lot of change in the markets and with most commodity prices at agreeable levels it may be time to consider putting a yearly budget together and finding ways to protect your margin. Consider a budget that includes direct costs, power and equipment costs as well as labor and overhead. Factor in your own cost of living and personal draw as well.Then consider expected revenue without forgetting government payments. There is a resource found at http://swroc.cfans

.umn.edu/researchandoutreach/farmbusinessmanagement /index.htm that helps figure break-even price. The results are often revealing of either the need to lock-in current profit levels or the ability of a producer to bid up land or take out additional personal draw. There are a lot of pricing options that offer some level or price protection. Forward pricing and simple cash contracts are the simplest and most common forms but there are other options that can accommodate upside potential in the markets as well. Calls and puts can be expensive but can also offer good peace of mind to those with strong market opinions who also want to protect themselves. Many elevators offer hedge-to-arrive and basis-only contracts to accommodate different market strategies as well. ••• This article was submitted by Christian Lilienthal, University of Minnesota Extension educator for Nicollet County, Minn.

This week’s Back Roads is the work of The Land Correspondent Carolyn Van Loh

Souvenir of the defenders ising from the boulevard of New Ulm’s Center Street, the Defenders R Monument is a reminder of the tragic events of August 1862. New Ulm suffered great loss from the siege by the Sioux (Dakota) during the Dakota

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Conflict. They burned 190 of the 250 buildings; casualties included 34 dead and 60 wounded. Hearing of the attack, Traverse des Sioux resident Charles E. Flandrau took his family to St. Peter where he gathered 100 volunteers who marched with him to New Ulm. He led in the defense of the town, and after the Sioux fled, Flandrau organized a train of 153 wagons that evacuated women, children and the wounded to Mankato. Although Flandrau had no previous military experience, he was familiar with the Sioux and their way of life because he had worked with them and had served as an Indian agent. “I look upon the success of the whites in these several attacks on the Fort (Ridgley) and New Ulm as the most important events of the war,” Flandrau said, looking back on the Sioux battles. The 1890 Minnesota Legislature authorized a memorial to honor the memory of those who defended New Ulm during the conflict of 1862. This monument stands as a reminder to those who drive by of the sacrifices made by early settlers. An estimated 10,000 to 15,0000 spectators gathered in New Ulm for the dedication of the monument on Aug. 22, 1891. Surviving defenders received a medal engraved with the words “souvenir to the defenders of New Ulm August 18 to 24, 1862.” Several speakers, including Gov. Merriam, Mayor Wagner, Col. Flandrau, ex-governor Ramsey and veteran Freeman Talbot, spoke to the significance of the occasion. Major Sanders, LeSueur Tigers No. 2 at the Battle of New Ulm, was the English-speaking orator of the day, and Peter Scherer was the German-speaking orator. The festive day concluded with “musical, theatrical and otherwise, which the Germans know so well how to present,” wrote Flandrau in his account of the event.
