OPINION

Bubble keeps feeding itself Reese then listed 78 taxes including these poetic phrases : Tax his coffin, tax his grave, tax the sod in which he’s laid. Put these words upon his tomb, Taxes drove me to my doom. When he’s gone, do not relax, It’s time to apply the inheritance tax. He concluded, Still think this is funny? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had no national debt, we had the largest middle class in the world, and mom stayed home to raise kids! Solid advice And now a bit of Old Farmer’s advice: Keep skunks and bankers at a distance. Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads. Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and leave the rest to God. Growing bubble Finally this closing thought on the Washington bubble that keeps getting bigger and bigger: Total lobbying spending in 2000 was $1.6 billion. In 2010, it was $3.5 billion. And the biggest spender: Finance, insurance and real estate with $473 million spent on lobbying in 2010. Just a coincidence that billions of “stimulus funds” to revive our economy mostly went to this very same sector? Not likely. ••• Dick Hagen is staff writer of The Land.

will enhance the state’s biofuels industry, stepping up Minnesota’s participation in the alternative energy economy. Gas prices rising to near $4 per gallon this month underscore the importance of breaking our addiction to foreign fossil fuels. This agreement is good news for Minnesota’s farmers and ranchers, and for our state as a whole. The agreement is also an encouraging reminder that despite vigorous disagreements elsewhere in public life, leaders from across the political spectrum understand the vital role agriculture plays in supporting Minnesota’s economy and quality of life. That makes sense. After all, regardless of our political convictions, we all need to eat. ••• This commentary was submitted by Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson.

MINDS, from pg. 2A Speaker, Pelosi, who stood up and criticized the president for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist. If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red. If the Army and Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan. If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take their power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy”, “inflation” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do. These 545 people and they alone, are responsible.

works for us all. As expected, the budget bill features significant spending reductions for the MDA and other areas of the ag budget. However, even in our time of financial constraint, this legislation offers important benefits for Minnesota. • New retail food inspectors will be hired and trained, increasing the frequency of inspections and helping ensure a safe food supply in Minnesota; • The state’s anhydrous ammonia inspection and compliance activities will increase. This will make the storage and use of this fertilizer safer, thus protecting farmers, fertilizer applicators and the rural communities where storage tanks are located; • Agriculture literacy will be improved through the development and dissemination of new curricula that incorporate agriculture into core subject areas for grades K-12; and • New research and development

Commentary: Announcement brings economic opportunity Earlier in April, the U.S. Department of Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack announced a long-anticipated round of funding, designed to spur economic development in rural areas while providing a much needed upgrade to dated electric transmission infrastructure. A total of $376 million will be divided among 10 rural electric cooperatives and utilities in states such as Minnesota, Iowa, Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, New

Mexico and South Dakota. The program, managed by the USDA Rural Development program, will benefit up to 20,000 rural homes and businesses. This investment is important as many of our renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar, are most abundant in remote regions that aren’t well connected to the existing transmission network. Up to 300,000 MW of wind projects, enough to meet 20 percent of our annual electricity demand, are lying

OPINION

dormant due to inadequate transmission capacity. To utilize the tremendous potential associated with the development of renewable energy, it’s critical we find a way to connect these projects to the existing grid network. By explicitly requiring that these funds be used for building or expanding existing transmission lines, our rural communities are able to take a significant step forward in an effort to better develop the resources at our disposal.

Because the health of our rural communities depends on our ability to translate our clean energy resources into economic opportunity, providing entrepreneurs the tools necessary to develop the resources right in our back yard moves us one step closer to making our clean energy future a reality. ••• This commentary was submitted by Johnathan Hladik, an energy policy advocate with the Center for Rural Affairs.

ing one or both reactions are the same people now gathering money and manpower to remake the image of American farmers and ranchers. Hackman offered a keen insight to this curious approach in an April 19 telephone interview when she acknowledged that “farmers and ranchers have a great reputation with consumers. It’s how farmers and ranchers produce that concerns them.” She’s right. The problem most consumers have with farmers and ranchers is how they produce, not what they produce. That means consumers have worries about the technology used on many of today’s farms and ranches. New-generation technology like GM seeds, “animal health” products, crop chemistry, fertilizer runoff and agriculture’s vast

Dividing perennials not as scary as you may think After spending a recent weekend working in the yard, I noticed that the Black Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia fulgida “Goldsturm”) are getting rather large. They were planted about five years ago as small, one-gallon plants. As they began to emerge this spring, I noticed that each plant covers an area at least the size of a two-foot circle. They are larger than their intended size and need to be divided. When visiting or calling our office, people frequently ask: How and when do I divide perennials? Many are reluctant to dig up their perennials in fear that they may damage or kill them. In reality, most perennials are tough plants and are rarely affected when divided or transplanted. Perennials are divided for many reasons, including to rejuvenate and increase flowering, to limit size or to share a variety with others. Most plants respond well when divided in the spring while others do best late-summer to early fall. For those of you who have perennials in your yard that are in need of dividing, following is a list of varieties that do well in the spring: Aster, Astilbe, Bee Balm (Monarda), Beardtongue (Penstemon), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia), Blazing Star (Liatris), Coneflower (Echinacea), Coral Bells (Heuchera), Coreopsis, Daylily (Hemerocallis), Geranium, Hosta, Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), Salvia, Phlox, Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum), Speedwell (Veronica), Stonecrop (Sedum) and Yarrow (Achillea). Most of these will grow enough that they can be divided and transplanted every three to four years. When dividing perennials in the spring, wait until the new growth begins to emerge, this way you will be able to see how large it is. Dig completely around and under the plant. Lift the plant onto a tarp to avoid getting dirt on top of the rock or mulch. Take a spade or sharp knife and cut into equal portions. Make sure each division has equal amounts of top growth and roots. Each individual plant should be

about 4 to 6 inches in size when you are finished splitting it apart. Replant as soon as possible or keep them moist and out of direct sunlight. Soak the plants with water after replanting. I encourage you to spend a few minutes this spring looking at the perennials in your garden or landscape. Do you have varieties that have not been performing well and are in need of rejuvenating, or do

you have a special hosta that you would like to share with others? Dividing your perennials may be the answer and it is easier than you may think. ••• This article was submitted by Rick Pleggenkuhle, horticulture program coordinator with the Cerro Gordo County office of Iowa State University Extension.

Return of spring awakening wasps Spring has a certain charisma to it which seems to convince people to want to get out of the house and get a little yard work done. Minnesotans are fortunate that winter keeps most of the dangerous creepy crawlies out of range and out of mind, but one thing we have got are those painful little devils known as wasps. Isn’t it something that one little tiny insect flying around can be enough to keep a whole family out of the backyard? Wasps are relentless little buggers so now might be the right time to get those little stingers out of your yard before they keep you out. The good thing is that most of those mud nests you see now probably don’t hold any threats for this year; its host colony died over the winter. Last year’s young females moved out and overwintered elsewhere. The problem is that wasps have a tendency to keep finding the same sheltered rafters, overhangs and corners year after year. Some easy treatments for reoccurring nest spots are lining the area with tin foil or rubbing with soap to create too smooth of a surface for a nest to stick to. It’s also been said that wasps aren’t apt to build on sky-blue colored surfaces so consider that color for

bird houses and other hot-spots. Wasps in your walls might be a different story. Nests built in the siding or attic of a house may have provided enough shelter for insects to overwinter; big nests can form in these spots over a few years. The best idea is to seal off your house as best as you can and, if needed, call for help from an exterminator, pest control or brave little neighbor kid. ••• This article was submitted by Christian Lilienthal, University of Minnesota Extension educator for Nicollet County, Minn.

Food writer Diane delights with ‘Kitchen Keepsakes’ Cookbook Corner By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent Talented Brainerd Dispatch food writer Diane Hoglin has published a cookbook, “Kitchen Keepsakes by Diane’s Delights,” and delightful it certainly is. An attractive hardcover with 250 homestyle recipes using readily available ingredients, “Kitchen Keepsakes” has recipes for real people with real kitchens and real schedules and real families. It features a larger typeface so it’s easier to read — and large type is a godsend when you’re up to your elbows in some sort of mess and craning your neck to see what the recipe says. Hoglin grew up in a family of seven children and says they never ate out: If Mom was sick of cooking, Dad took over. Her recipes and anecdotes reflect this entwined love of food and family. Northern Minnesota is just a little warmer with cooks like Hoglin around. Here are some of my favorites from the book, although it was hard to choose from among so many gems. ■ A ragout is a beef and vegetable stew that’s usually seasoned with wine and herbs and simmered on the stovetop instead of in the oven. Hoglin’s recipe features not only the obligatory potatoes and carrots but also their delicious cousins — parsnips, rutabaga, turnips and sweet potato. Larry’s Vegetable and Beef Ragout 4 tablespoons olive oil 2 pounds chuck roast beef, cubed 2 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons flour 1 cup chicken broth 1 cup dry white wine 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces 2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch rounds 1 rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces 2 turnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

Many Minnesota farmers left home to join Civil War By CAROLYN VAN LOH The Land Staff Writer The Civil War impacted Minnesota agriculture two ways. First, many Minnesota farmers left their farms and families behind to fight with the Union forces. Second, the population increased from 172,000 residents in 1860 to 248,000 five years later. Farmers and veterans lured by the promise of productive farm land accounted for some of the swelling population. New York farmer Willard Thayer, his wife of five years and their children Lucius and Sarah traveled by ox team, boat and train from Ohio to settle in Le Sueur County, Minn., near Cleveland in 1856. Thayer farmed 80 acres until 1889 when he moved into Cleveland. The son of a War of 1812 veteran, Thayer interrupted his farming to join the 2nd Minnesota Volunteer Infantry when the call went out for more recruits in 1864. He served in the Union army and participated in Sherman’s march to the sea. Thayer was among the victorious soldiers who participated

in the grand review in Washington, D.C. After a fulfilling life as a Minnesota farmer, Thayer, recognized as a staunch Democrat, died a few weeks short of his 100th birthday while living with Lucius in Ladysmith, Wis. Charles H. Hopkins, the grandson of a Revolutionary War soldier, was among those arriving in Minnesota after the war. Born in New York in 1844, he moved to Wisconsin with his family in 1861. Hopkins enlisted with the 13th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry in 1863. He fought valiantly and refused a furlough when he contracted black measles. After the war ended, Hopkins returned to Wisconsin where he worked in a dairy and as a clerk. Hopkins moved to Minnesota in 1869 and homesteaded 160 acres in Renville County near Fairfax. Three years later he married Susan Cushman, the granddaughter of a War of 1812 veteran. They raised three children on their farm. Hopkins was a political leader, first as a Republican and later as a Populist. He also served on the

school board and as a justice of the peace for 21 years. Although he didn’t see action in Minnesota during the Sioux War, Hopkins played a prominent role in erecting the Fort Ridgley Monument in 1896. Hopkins’ daughter never married, and his two sons moved farther west. Like Hopkins, Christian Stolt moved to Minnesota after the war. He was 14 years old when his family emigrated from Germany in 1856 to settle in Cook County, Illinois. He joined the 2nd Illinois Cavalry in 1861 and saw action in many major battles, including Shiloh, Vicksburg and Nashville. Stolt took a minie ball through his right lung and later had it cut out through his back. In 1867 Stolt claimed 160 acres in Section 8 in Nicollet Township, southwest of the town of Nicollet, Minn., dubbed one of the best farms in the area. He later acquired 60 acres of lumber land as well as 240 acres of good farmland south of Madelia in Watonwan County, Minn. Stolt and his first wife, Johanna, had two daughters; he and his second wife, Augusta, raised eight children. An 1897 account of Stolt illustrates his success as a farmer by describing their building site and the two-story brick home built in 1881. The house See STOLT, pg. 15A

However, the advent of television had many thinking the school rooms would be taking place in front of the set. But Mr. Hanson, whom he calls a hands-onteacher, further cultivated this passion by including Eckers on archeological digs and work at places such as Fort Snelling.

Brothers found themselves on opposite sides of war By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press Having brothers serve different sides in the Civil War was not unheard of. Most of those heartwrenching decisions were made by young men in the border states — Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri — where allegiances were divided between North and South. But Nicollet County, Minn., brothers found themselves on opposite sides of the war — one of the few such known cases in the area. They both fought at Gettysburg and both were wounded during the war — one dying with sword in hand, the other dying of his injuries and yellow fever shortly after the war. “Here in our area, that was a pretty rare event to have one brother fighting for the North and one fighting for the South,” said Bob Sandeen of the Nicollet County Historical Society. Brothers Michael and James Magner, of Irish descent, arrived in the county in 1852, according to Edward

Neill’s “History of the Minnesota Valley.” They had five brothers, one named Matthew, who also lived in Nicollet County for a time. James had a long, colorful military career, in charge of Indian affairs in southern Minnesota and serving at Fort Ridgely prior to the war. Matthew, who came to Nicollet County but didn’t like farming or Minnesota winters, found work in the South prior to the

Animal rights legislation is simmering at state level ers” within their own ranks but the illegal, trespassing nature of outside undercover “agents” of the HSUS and other such groups is unacceptable. Howard Goldman, Minnesota director of the HSUS, called the bill, “an attempt to criminalize whistle-blowing at a time when we need more transparency about animal welfare. It goes after people with a really broad brush.” Rep. Rod Hamilton, R-Mountain Lake and House sponsor of the legislation said such concerns are “absolutely wrong.” He contends that people who document animal abuse would be “guilty of abuse” if they don’t report it immediately to an operation’s owner, management or law enforcement. The Minnesota Foundation for Responsible Animal Care is not an advocacy based organization so it does not take positions on legislation or engage in lobbying activities. However Joe Martin, its executive director, listed these bullet points. • The proposed legislation raises important questions and deserves to be discussed. • In order to protect the integrity of the food supply, it’s critical that penalties are harsh enough to deter individuals who fraudulently gain access to livestock farms to do harm.

veterinarian and other agricultural professionals. We oppose any legislation or regulation that restricts or prohibits scientifically established livestock and poultry husbandry practices including the approved use of antibiotics. We support efforts to protect a farmer’s right to farm without unreasonable restriction, regulations or harassment. We support rules, regulations and reasonable tolerance levels governing food safety being scientifically based rather than based on emotion.” Perhaps to help stem future harassment of Minnesota livestock producers, legislation was introduced in the Minnesota Legislature April 5 that would make it illegal to produce or distribute information about animal mistreatment or agricultural pollution. “This legislation is aimed at people who are harassing and sabotaging these operations,” said Sen. Doug Magnus, R-Slayton and chairman of the Senate agricultural committee. “These people who go undercover aren’t being truthful about what they are doing.” Most livestock farms today have Code of Conduct regulations in place. In simple terms, an employee on a livestock farm is subject to immediate dismissal if he/she is guilty of animal abuse. If an employee notices animal abuse by other employees and doesn’t report this action, job dismissal again is the penalty. In essence, livestock producers are OK about “whistle blow-

Legislation may not get the floor due to budget debate LEGISLATION, from pg. 25A • From our viewpoint, the opponents of the legislation have focused their criticism on making it illegal to obtain undercover footage. They believe this practice should be legal and be protected under “whistle blower” statutes. • The proponents of the legislation have focused their arguments that penalties should be increased for individuals who fraudulently represent themselves to gain entrance onto a farm or facility and stage negative portrayals of agriculture. • From the MNFRAC’s perspective, true “whistleblowers” would If you want to see notify the what’s going on in a appropriate facility, tell the authorities owner straight up and/or take but don’t engage in immediate steps to end witnessed outright lies. abuse, rather than — Doug Magnus to hold the footage and orchestrate elaborate media and fundraising campaigns. Radatz of Minnesota Farm Bureau questions if the Minnesota proposed legislation will even get on the agenda this session in view of the budget issues still being debated. He acknowledged that the HSUS does have a registered lobbyist but is unaware of the lobbying status of People for the Ethnical Treatment of Animals. A springboard for the Minnesota legislation was the Minnesota Agri-Growth Council which became aware of the Iowa situation. Radatz pointed out that as the proposed legislation winds its way through various committees, amendments get attached and the process simply slows. Vinchattle, the Iowa Poultry Association CEO, said the Iowa legislation happened simply because of the proliferation of videos being produced by groups seeking publicity in their battles against animal agriculture. He includes both PETA and the

‘Misrepresentation of character’ By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer “We support the broad concepts addressed in the (animal rights) legislation,” said Iowa Farm Bureau public relations manager Laurie Johns, “which includes the tampering of corn and soybean fields, greenhouses, orchards, seed houses, elevators, nurseries and all kinds of farm bioterrorism and sabotage; that’s something that concerns our members. The issue here isn’t just about hidden videos taken on livestock farms. HF589 is about a ‘misrepresentation of character’ and trespassing on private property and the risks of such activity to all farming; that is why Farm Bureau farmers support it.” Will the proposed legislation survive in either Iowa or Minnesota? Kevin Vinchattle, Iowa Poultry Association chief executive officer, indicated the Iowa proposal was on the Senate Calendar (as of April 21) with work being done on amendments to clarify certain points. “People say we’re trying to stop whistle blowing and that’s not true. We have laws covering actual abuse and neglect. Our livestock people know HSUS as primary antagonists in these conflicts and added, “sometimes they don’t even make allegations of actual abuse, but just want to impart a negative image about animal agriculture in the entire food chain. None of us condone the suffering of an animal. We already have legislation in place for handling livestock abuse and neglect; so do most states with an animal agriculture industry.” He noted some videos completely misrepresent the actual operating of certain equipment in poultry housing. “We had equipment specialists verify intentional malfunctioning of the equipment to produce a more dramatic video. Also a video in a broiler barn showed dead birds with the implication that the confined environment drastically multiplies the death rate. These poultry houses get walked every day. Production efficiency is vital.

about these laws. Unfortunately an occasional bad apple does surface and we can’t prevent that. But what’s at stake is the very future of animal agriculture. All the major farm groups have signed on to this legislation.” Two Iowa Democratic legislators criticize the bill, contending that it would undermine consumer confidence in Iowa food products and hurt the state’s economy. “Creating an ‘Ag Gag’ order on the employees of the livestock industry threatens food safety and raises sanitation concerns,” said Rep. Jim Lykam of Davenport. Quoted in the April 13 Des Moines Register, Sen. Matt McCoy, Des Moines, said, “What do Iowa food producers have to hide? The deplorable track record of the few bad actors in the Iowa livestock industry is the strongest case against the ‘Ag Gag’ rule and calls for increased transparency and accountability”. The Iowa bill, House File 589, approved by the House, would create a Class D felony for people convicted of such actions, sending them to prison for up to five years. “Frankly if a person comes to work for you, you should have full faith that they are seeking the job for the right reasons. In one particular instance the undercover person shooting the video turned out to be an HSUS operative who had signed a Code of Conduct when he took employment at this particular poultry operation that if he saw anything amiss, he was to report that immediately. “If it’s blatantly disparaging animal agriculture, regardless the evidence, then the nation (had) better wake up to the potential consequences to its food chain,” Vinchattle said. Inevitable is the barrage of e-mail being directed to both Hamilton and Magnus with virtually all of it on behalf of animal rights. “They’re well organized. They create an audience real quick and the internet obviously has become their communications network. “If you want to see what’s going on in a facility, tell the owner straight up but don’t engage in outright lies,” Magnus said. As of mid-April, hearings had not yet been scheduled in the Minnesota House or Senate.

The cattlemen recruit local FFA chapters to provide 15 to 20 members to help out, many of them wearing “Beef is what’s for dinner” t-shirts. The Ranch House Restaurant can handle about 420 people per sitting. So how do they squeeze 1,600 “through the chutes” so to speak?

The WCCA is the largest of the state’s cattlemen’s groups with a current membership of about 100, both cow-calf operations and feeders. According to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, there are approximately 80,000 head of cattle (including dairy) in Stevens, Grant, Big Stone, Traverse and Swift counties. Cattle on feed in the feedlot in August 2010 was approximately 11,000 head or approximately 20,000 head fed annually in those five Minnesota counties.

Be careful with those ‘cold calf’ concerns during calving Mother Nature finally decided that it’s spring, and calving season is well under way for beef producers. Amid snow pastures or warm barns the majority of calves are born between February and the end of April in this part of the country and with that can come a slurry of health concerns and headaches for the producer or the product. Here are a few reminders for those of us checking the cows for those clumsy, fuzzy and often a bit “dopey” little calves. Regardless of how closely the cow herd is managed or synchronized, full-term calves can be born 10-plus days before their cow’s due date or held past their due date by reluctant first-time heifers. Predictability is rarely part of the game. Regardless of when or where a cow starts the birthing process, producers need to keep a clean calf puller, feeding tube, cattle chute and vet number handy. After the calf is born it only has a few hours (or less) to get cleaned off and standing before the dangers of its new environment can become an issue. The lining of a newborn calf ’s intestines are porous at birth to allow the passive immunity of the immunoglobins in a cow’s colostrum to be absorbed without digestive degradation. Unfortunately, it also allows the bacteria of any manure or dirt on the cow’s udder or other sources to be absorbed unchecked. These impurities cause scours in the calves and create dehydration or disease-related deaths if unmanaged. The calf really needs colostrum milk within the first hour of birth to get a good start and manage

FARM • COMMERCIAL • INDUSTRIAL

disease threats. Within 24 hours of birth the porous intestinal lining has sealed off to its normal state and no longer permits immunoglobin passage. If the calf has a cold mouth, it hasn’t drank from the cow yet and assistance may be required. Either milking the colostrum yourself or using commercial or preserved colostrum and feeding it with a tube may be the solution. Aside from immunity and nutritional functions of the calf getting on milk right away, milk helps the calf stay warm from the inside-out. “Cold calves” are common to almost any operation, and signs include shivering, heavy breathing, and pale hooves and nose which indicate the body shunting blood off from its extremities to maintain its core temperature.

Normal body temperature is 100 F; at 94 F vital organs start cooling down. Normally, once the calf gets licked dry and has its first drink it does a good job keeping body heat unless it can’t find a dry place to lay or gets wet. Hot boxes can be used on those calves that need a little help every year but without proper ventilation and airflow, scorching or pneumonia can be an issue. For questions on livestock management or agriculture production, contact the Nicollet County Extension Office at (507) 934-0360. ••• This article was submitted by Christian Lilienthal, University of Minnesota Extension educator for Nicollet County, Minn.

Minnesota state veterinarian urges producers to vaccinate against anthrax Producers in northwestern Minnesota are urged to vaccinate their cattle soon against naturally-occurring anthrax. “Before producers turn their cattle out on pasture this summer they should consider vaccinating for anthrax,” said Minnesota Board of Animal Health Executive Director and State Veterinarian Bill Hartmann. “Cattle that graze can be exposed to anthrax spores in the soil. Vaccination is an inexpensive way to protect your cattle.” Anthrax is a naturally occurring disease caused by the bacteria Bacillus anthracis. The bacteria can lie dormant for years in the soil. However, heavy rains and flooding can bring the spores to the surface, where they may be ingested by grazing animals. Livestock infected with anthrax die quickly, often exhibiting no symptoms until just before death.

As an added precaution, Hartmann recommends producers assume that any unexpected death among their herd is due to anthrax until the disease can be ruled out. Suspect carcasses should not be cut open, because that can allow anthrax to spread. If you suspect anthrax, contact your veterinarian immediately. Fortunately, the risk of humans developing anthrax from naturally occurring bacteria is extremely low. Minnesota has recorded no human cases of anthrax since 1953. Visit the Board’s anthrax webpage at www.bah.state.mn.us/diseases/anthrax/index.html for more information. ••• This article was submitted by the Minnesota Board of Animal Health.

For some historical perspective, Natzke is working on his one- and five-year statistical review of the dairy industry. Preliminary numbers show the greatest increases in dairy cow numbers over the five-year period occurred in Idaho and Texas, he said, each up about 100,000 head from 2006; with Michigan up 48,000 head; and Wisconsin and Minnesota, each up about 25,000 head. “With tight milk-feed price margins forecast for the remainder of 2011 and beef prices expected to remain high as we enter the summer grilling season, we can expect cow slaughter to remain strong,” Natzke said, and “if current trends continue, that won’t lead to a decline in the nation’s milking herd.” ■ Checking the cash dairy markets, a more typical block-barrel cheese price spread was restored in the Good Friday holiday-shortened week but the roller coaster headed down. The 40-pound blocks closed Thursday at $1.60 per pound, down 2.75 cents on the week, but 23.25 cents above that week a year ago. The 500-pound barrels closed at $1.58, down 4.5 cents on the week, and also 23.25 above a year ago. Thirteen cars of block and 10 of barrel were sold on the week. The lagging National Agricultural Statistics Service-surveyed U.S. average block price lost 4.4 cents, slipping to $1.6453. The barrels averaged $1.6220, down 7.5 cents. Butter held at $2 all week, 43 cents above a year ago. Nine cars were sold on the week. NASS butter averaged $1.9730, down 3.1 cents. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.61, down a penny on the week. Extra Grade remained at $1.80. NASS powder averaged $1.5766, up 1.5 cents, and dry whey averaged 48.38, up 1.7 cents. ■ Mary Ledman, Principle of Keough Ledman and Associates Inc., said that cheese prices were about See DAIRYLINE, pg. 33A


Ledman: China not a low-cost milk producer about 7.5 percent of U.S. butterfat was exported. Fresh from a trip to China, Ledman said she visited both large and small dairies as well as rural communities, and dairy farms with more than a thousand head. Milk checks are running $30 to $35/cwt., she said, and they investigated potential investment opportunities there. “We were told that the rent per acre would be about $800,” Ledman said, “so I came away recognizing that China is not a low-cost producer in milk nor do I expect them to be any time soon.” She believes China will be a good export market, short- to mid-term and possibly long-term, because

When asked about the strength in butter, with the price back up to $2 per pound, Ledman said, “the butter market is really a global market and that $2/lb. price level is pretty consistent with the global market for the past two years.” She added that it’s an indication that the United States is a player in that market and reported that, through February

The CWT program accepted four requests for export assistance this week from Dairy Farmers of America to sell a total of 1.6 million pounds of Cheddar cheese to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered through August and raises CWT’s 2011 cheese exports to 24.4 million pounds. ■ In politics, dairy farmers would be able to utilize a federal visa program to bring foreign dairy workers to the United States if a bill in the Senate

ever becomes law. The National Milk Producers Federation endorses the legislation, which expands the H2A Improvement Act, Chris Galen said. Labor issues are still a challenge for a lot of dairy farms across the country, Galen said. Other types of agriculture use the H-2A visa program to bring in seasonal workers, primarily fruit and vegetable operations, but sheep and goat herders can also use it and this bill would allow dairy farmers to do so. The bill was introduced last year in the Senate and didn’t go anywhere, Galen said, but the NMPF has hopes that a bipartisan group of Senators will be able to this year. He said this remains an important issue for the NMPF as well as for the dairy industry and something needs to be done about immigration policy to make certain that the labor needs of farms are met. Milking cows is not a job that a lot of domestic workers want, despite the tough economic times with high unemployment, Galen said, and he emphasized that the NMPF still supports comprehensive immigration reform. He admitted it “remains a long shot given the political climate so this particular bill, which is more of a rifle shot, would represent a very significant and welcome step to addressing at least a piece of the puzzle regarding labor issues.” ■ Flies are a pesky part of dairy farming but, unlike rising and falling milk prices, flies can be controlled. We talked about ClariFly, a feedthrough larvicide that’s put into ration supplements and fed daily to control flies on the feed and in the manure,

MARKETING

said Rick Short, regional sales manager for Central Life Sciences. ClariFly can be fed to beef and dairy cattle at all stages of life, he said, and is even included in milk replacer. The process begins 30 days before the last frost in the spring, Short said, and is fed until 30 days after your first frost in the fall. “The old timers used to say we need a hard frost to kill all the bugs,” Short said, but “that’s not actually an accurate statement especially where flies are concerned because, when flies hatch out, they will hatch out in the manure before it gets very cold and, when they hatch out, they will grow very very slowly and then when spring rains and warm weather comes they hatch out as adults.” ClariFly can go in pelleted or extruded feed, Short said, it’s a stable molecule and mainly works on house flies and stable flies. Stable flies are the blood suckers, he said, so cattle can lose blood and the flies can transmit diseases. In fact, the house fly can transfer over 60 diseases so, other than just the bother of flies to people and cattle, you can also likely reduce incidences of disease.

Livestock Angles Domestic slips, exports surge

Grain Angles Wheat stocks being impacted

The following market analysis is for the week ending April 21. CORN — Weather and money flow were early week market movers as snow and rain descended over much of the Midwest this week, but missed the drought parts of the southern wheat plains. Both old and new crop contracts were gainers as we began the week, but one day’s trade at midweek wiped out those increases in the holiday-shortened week on the unwinding of corn-soybeans and corn-wheat spreads in addition to a hint of a possible drier forecast. PHYLLIS NYSTROM The sell-off coincided with a Country Hedging St. Paul lower weekly ethanol production number as well. This action reinforces the volatility of the markets and what a small change in forecasts can do to a market. The December contract posted a new contract high at $6.84 prior to the sell-off. The U.S. dollar index plummeted to 2 1/2 year lows this week when Standard and Poor’s moved the U.S. long-term credit rating from stable to negative. This jolted the markets into buying commodities. Ethanol production for the week ended April 15 was 856,000 barrels per day, the lowest level since September. The current pace of production would put annual production around 13.3 billion gallons, ahead of the renewable fuel standard minimum of 12.6 billion gallons. This week’s grind lowers the annual grind to 4.84 billion bushels versus the U.S. Department of Agri-

The livestock markets continued their recent rally into the Easter holiday. Exports have been the catalyst behind the continued rally as domestic demand seems to be faltering. The main reason behind the shift from domestic consumption to the export market seems to be the weakening U.S. dollar. This is making domestic prices rise curbing the demand, while the cost to import U.S. meat products becomes cheaper. The cattle market has slipped off its high in recent weeks as numbers of market-ready cattle have been on the increase. JOE TEALE Slaughter is ahead of a year ago, Broker causing beef production to be Great Plains Commodity clearly ahead of last year. The Afton cold storage reports have continued to indicate beef is still moving into storage for the past several months. Beef cutouts look as if they have found the area where they have met resistance from the retail buyers. Above the $190 per hundredweight area basis choice has proven to be the soft spot and prices have dropped rapidly from this level as packers realize to move the product they are going to have to discount. On April 21, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released a Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The results were: On feed as of April 1, 105 percent of the previous year; placed during March, 103 percent; and marketed during March, 104 percent. The report is seen as neutral as it fell close to pre-report estimates. The fact that there is 5 percent more cattle on feed coupled with a larger supply of beef in cold storage

As we wait for spring to arrive, Mother Nature tests our patience once again. When comparing our planting conditions today with last year, we see a picture of contrast. While much of the corn crop was planted by this time last year, we struggle to see field work begin. Grain markets have taken note of the late planting and the battle for corn and soybean acres. The dry weather in the Plains has had a dramatic impact on the winter wheat crop. This is reminiscent of the drought that the Black Sea area experienced last year. While we have ample stocks of TOM NEHER wheat in storage, the soft wheat AgStar VP Agribusiness & Grain Specialist prices will compete with corn in Rochester many of the livestock feeding areas of the southeastern United States. This could draw down existing inventory as wheat is substituted for corn in livestock feed rations. These volatile market conditions are reflected in the prices being traded for grain. If one only looks at the current prices, they would conclude that the grain producers are all selling grain at these current levels. Yet, this is not the case for the vast majority of grain producers. Much of the grain has been priced at lower prices than the market shows today. With last year’s early planting in almost perfect conditions, the grain markets were expecting a “bin buster” crop and the prevailing sentiment was that prices would be much lower at harvest. Much of last

Soybeans turn corner higher in spite of trade talk NYSTROM, from pg. 35A culture forecast of 5 billion bushels to be used for ethanol production. This is the first week that we’ve seen this magnitude of decline, so we’ll wait another week to see if a trend is developing. Export sales this week were as expected with 24 million bushels for old crop and 9.6 million bushels sold for new crop. Corn basis was firmer this week with little old crop moving out of the country with posted roads and a friendly attitude for remaining inventories. In China, the government suspended the valueadded tax deduction for corn processors. This is an attempt to slow growth of corn sweeteners, ethanol and starch. China also announced that they would increase their banks’ reserve requirement by 0.5 percent, the fourth increase this year in an attempt to curb inflation. Their March inflation rate was 5.4 percent. OUTLOOK : Weather. With today’s equipment this crop can be planted quickly, but we need to get started. Last week the U.S. corn crop was 7 percent planted, as expected and just under the five-year average pace of 8 percent. This coming week the average is 23 percent complete and now we will begin to fall behind. While it is too early to say we’ll see widespread switching of crop intentions, every forecast change has the potential to push prices sharply in either direction. The five-day moving average support line in the December corn contract held this week, keeping the uptrend intact. For the week, May corn was down 4

3/4 cents to close at $7.37 1/4 and the December contract was up 9 1/2 cents at $6.65 1/2 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans turned a corner this week from sideways/lower to higher in spite of ongoing talk of more cancellations and delays of Chinese purchases and higher production estimates from South America. The Argentine agricultural ministry improved their crop estimate from 50 million metric tons to 50.4 mmt and the USDA’s 49.5 mmt projection. China announced this week that a sale of 3 mmt of state reserves had been made to select crushers at discounted prices. One of China’s largest crushers this week pegged China’s 2010-11 soybean imports at only 54 mmt, 3 mmt less than the USDA estimate. Soybean exports were surprisingly big this week at 12.8 million bushels with half of the sales to China. New crop sales totaled 7.5 million bushels. The amount sold to China was interesting because earlier in the week China confirmed that they had canceled six to eight soybeans cargoes for June-July and another 20 cargoes had been deferred to later dates.

OUTLOOK: Soybeans may have an uphill battle to higher prices. Demand from the Chinese is suspect for the next few months and delayed corn planting could translate into more soybean acres; but outside markets (including corn and wheat), a lower U.S. dollar and new Chinese sales had an overall positive effect on price direction. This market should continue to be choppy. This week, May soybeans closed 48 3/4 cents higher at $13.80 1/2 and the November contract gained 42 3/4 cents to settle at $13.82 1/2 per bushel. Nystrom’s note: Contract changes for the week ending April 21: Minneapolis May wheat was 62 1/2 cents higher, Kansas City soared 67 cents higher and Chicago was 55 1/4 cents higher. June crude oil was up $2.07 at $112.29 per barrel, heating oil lost 2 1/2 cents, gasoline gained 2 cents and natural gas jumped up nearly 21 cents. As of mid-afternoon on April 21, the Dow was up 140 points for the week and the U.S. dollar had lost 0.73 points. Gold hit an alltime of $1,508.30 per ounce this week before closing $19.40 higher for the week at $1,504.70 per ounce. The jobless report this week at 403,000 was above estimates but down from the previous week.

2011 should go with hog tendencies TEALE, from pg. 35A will make it difficult for prices to advance considering the supplies available. With seasonal tendencies for the cattle market to top in the late-spring, the market seems vulnerable to further weakness in the weeks ahead. Therefore producers should seek some protection for latespring and summer inventories. The hog market has continued to be on a price advance as packers have been actively seeking live inventory. The demand for pork product has been active, especially in the export arena with fairly steady domestic demand which has supported the

recent strength in the market. The cold storage reports continue to show plenty of pork product in storage. As we approach the summer season, the seasonal tendencies usually point toward a top in the hog market. This year should prove to be no different than in previous years and a top should be in place by the end of summer. Considering the huge premiums the futures market is reflecting at this point, there is likely to be a divergence between the cash price and the futures in the weeks ahead. This should be an opportunity for producers to consider a cautious approach and take advantage of these large premiums and protect inventories.

‘We will just take what we get’ NEHER, from pg. 35A year’s and some of this year’s crops were priced earlier in the crop year as the crops looked stellar. Marketing moves that looked like good margin management decisions, lead to frustration as prices reacted to the nutrient and heat challenges in much of the Midwest growing areas. The early selling of crops has driven the market prices higher as there is less grain for sale as buyers enter the bidding process. When a buyer wants to buy grain they present a bid that is countered by an offer from the seller. If there are fewer sellers with grain to sell, the buyers have to bid a higher price to attract a willing seller. With less grain to sell, there are fewer sellers who are willing to accept the lower bids of the buyers. The current market conditions have lead to the runaway land prices that threaten the profitability that is assumed by the investor or landowner community. This market mentality is dangerous for those

looking to acquire additional land to produce grain. Under these conditions, it is easy to conclude that positive profit margins will prevail. Grain prices may remain high, yet the prices of land, seed, fertilizer and steel can squeeze margins nevertheless. Given these tendencies, margin management is still the most powerful “Grain Angle” in the tool box. As the cool, wet spring continues to test our patience, I can still remember my Grandmother. She was a strong woman who raised her family during the Dust Bowl and the Depression. Yet, Grandmother was prone to worry. When the weather began to get the best of her, we all felt her anxiety. It was during these times that I can remember my Grandpa telling her; “Mommy, I guess we will have to do like we used to, we will just take what we get.” This never seemed to comfort her, yet the rest of us knew this was wisdom in practice.

Owners, operators have until June 1 to decide on ACRE for ACRE payments for the 2011 crop year for corn and soybeans, at average statewide yield, 10-percent yield decrease and a 10-percent yield increase. Even though the ACRE program did not pay out in 2009 for corn and soybeans in Minnesota, and will likely not result in an ACRE payment in 2010, producers should not automatically “write-off” ACRE program enrollment for the 2011 crop year. The likely increase in the ACRE price guarantees for 2011, will lead to higher revenue guarantees for the 2011 ACRE program. This increases the likelihood of ACRE payments for the 2011 and 2012 crop years for corn and soybeans, as compared to the 2009 and 2010 crop years. However, current Chicago Board of Trade futures prices for corn and soybeans suggest that the potential for an ACRE payment in corn and soybeans in 2011 may be limited, unless there are reduced statewide yields for 2011. ••• Kent Thiesse is a government farm programs analyst and a vice president at MinnStar Bank in Lake Crystal, Minn.

adopting this practice because combining is so much easier. Some may even roll prior to planting continuous corn fields to improve planter performance. Potential diseases seem to be on everyone’s mind this year. Remember that it is necessary to have the correct environment, a susceptible host and the disease present for a disease to occur. Last year northern corn leaf blight was common in corn fields. Sudden death syndrome was widespread in soybean fields. The right set of conditions was present to trigger infection from these diseases. In all likelihood, we’ll be dealing with different diseases in 2011. Most farmers are using pre-emergence herbicides or tank mix partners to control glyphosate-resistant weeds in their fields. Timing remains critical: control weeds when they are small — two- to four-leaf stage — to avoid reductions. ••• This article was submitted by John Holmes, Iowa State University Extension crops specialist.

Notes: The estimated crop prices to trigger a 2011 ACRE payment are based on USDA ACRE price and revenue guarantees as of April 1. Producers must also meet farm-level triggers to qualify for 2011 ACRE payments.

Growing season outlook As farmers look to the upcoming growing season, there are lots of things to consider. Soil moisture reserves are excellent entering the season. Although soils are saturated they don’t seem to be unusually wet for this time of year. A recent column by Terry Basol discussed planting seed. He noted that planting too fast does, in fact, reduce yields. He also noted that “a planter traveling at 7 mph covers 10.5 ft./second and drops 20 corn seeds or 75 to 100 soybean seeds per second. This is a big expectation from your row units at this speed.” Don’t forget planting depth: corn should be seeded at 2 inches; soybeans at 1 1/2 inches. Planting time is among the most important factors to excellent yields. ISU Extension agronomists recommend planting corn between April 15 and May 5. Soybeans should be planted between May 1 and May 15. Expect to see more land rolling of soybean fields. The large rollers push down rocks and corn roots to help harvesting. Although there’s no agronomic advantage to land rolling, farmers are quickly

ACRE, from pg. 38A the producer adjustment. The total ACRE payment cannot exceed 25 percent of the state revenue guarantee for a given crop. The ACRE payment will be paid on 83.3 percent of crop base acres (same as for direct payments). The final ACRE payment to eligible producers can be adjusted upward, based on farm-level yields. (Example: Farm-level yield guarantee of 178 bu./acre, state yield guarantee of 166 bu./acre, would result in the ACRE payment being factored upward by 7 percent (x 1.07). ACRE decision summary for 2011 Remember that farm owners and operators have until June 1 to finalize their decision on enrollment in the ACRE program for 2011. ACRE enrollment does require a signature from landlords on cash rental farm units. Producers are encouraged to analyze situations and scenarios that are more favorable for ACRE enrollment for 2011, as well as situations where the best option may be continuing with the traditional DCP farm program. Table No. 2 shows the 2011 estimated national average price needed (Sept. 1 to Aug. 31, 2012) to reach the threshold

Artistic taqueria

hen Juan Carlos Mejia worked in the W big meat packing plants in Nebraska he dreamed of the day when he would own

La Michoacana, Long Prairie, Minn.

his own grocery store, meat market and even a little taqueria or cafe. Now, more than a decade after he left IBP to come to Long Prairie, he has the store and meat market. They are called La Michoacana, which signifies a person from the Mexican state of Michoacan. A little over a year ago he opened the taqueria. The food is cooked by his mother and a helper and includes a carryout menu of burritos, quesadillas, chile rellonos, tortas or Mexican sandwiches, gorditas and a number of items your average non-Mexican is unfamiliar with. The taqueria is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday in order to best serve the Spanish-speaking factory and farm workers of the area. Courthouse office workers have also begun to find their way down the narrow aisles to the taqueria in the back of the store for Friday lunch. Mejia knows that for many of the office workers, walking down those aisles is like going into a different country. He knows because he feels the same way in some of the other stores in town. He’s talked about ways to overcome those feelings for his customers. But, for now, the English-speaking customers have to settle for his mother’s excellent cooking and the colorful murals. The murals were part of the dream. One Sunday a couple of years ago, Mejia met an itinerant artist in church. He invited him to visit La Michoacana. Then, over a year’s time, the two created a gallery of colorful images. Their inspiration was the pages of a Mexican calendar, as well as their own imaginations. On one wall of the taqueria visitors will discover the pyramid of the sun and of the moon along with Aztec deities. On the opposite wall is a river rushing through a Mexican town surrounded by orchards. The murals are not limited to the taqueria, however. There are bright red roses and a green fearsome soccer-playing eagle over doorways and shelves in the store. Some paintings are tucked in corners of the store where only adventuresome customers go. If you don’t have the time or money to go to Mexico but do have the inclination, visit La Michoacan in downtown Long Prairie. Good food, colorful paintings and a memorable experience will reward you.
