One plus one is still two, except when you’re in Washington Mathematics is a nearly pure science. “Nearly” in that while one plus one always equals two, politicians often make $1 plus $1 equal $1 so they can then spend a third dollar to get to $2. In fact, politicians are so good at the muddled math of their budget game that they can turn the equation upside down and make it work in reverse: $1 of budget savings today can be legislated into $2 of tax cuts tomorrow. Both versions of this math are again in play now. For example, under the White House

2012 budget plan, $4 trillion of budget cuts in the coming decade actually means the federal deficit will grow from today’s $14.3 trillion to $27.6 trillion over that 10 years. How does $4 trillion in cuts add $13 trillion to the deficit? Beats me, but the alternative Republican plan shows Democrats aren’t the only financial alchemists in Washington. Indeed, the recently-passed 2012 House budget, named after its author, Rep. Paul Ryan who chairs that chamber’s budget committee, cuts $6.2 trillion from federal spending in the next 10 years.

Commentary: USDA invests in Minnesota organic farmers Minnesota farmers transitioning to organic systems and established organic producers now have an opportunity to apply for Environmental Quality Incentives Program Organic Initiative funding to assist their organic efforts. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced another $50 million in funding for the EQIP Organic Initiative, which provides a 75 percent share of the cost of implementing organic conservation measures to those who qualify — 90 percent for beginning, limited-resource and

socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. This is the third year of the Organic Initiative. In 2010, Natural Resources Conservation Service obligated $24 million nationally with over $1 million going to Minnesota organic farmers. This year even greater funding is available for Minnesota producers to plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns in ways that are consistent with organic production. The deadline for this application period is May 20. The Center for Rural Affairs has a

We created an EQIP Organic Initiative fact sheet available at www.cfra.org/node/2509 and we operate a farm bill helpline where producers can call (402) 6872100, ask for the Farm Bill Helpline and speak to a real person who can help producers receive assistance in accessing new programs like the EQIP Organic Initiative. The Farm Bill Helpline can also

Ag budget looks at big cuts GUEBERT, from pg. 4A U.S. Department of Agriculture saw its budget sliced by $3 billion. Soil and water conservation efforts alone lost more than $500 million in funding. The numbers look worse for the 2012 budget. The Ryan plan cuts USDA’s biggest line item, Food Stamps, by $127 billion over 10 years; slices $30 billion from farm program and crop insurance programs and, according to numbers compiled by the National Sustainable Ag Coalition, drains about $18 billion from “government-wide environmental spending” — including even more cuts to USDA conservation programs. Ranking ag committee member Collin Peterson put his accountant’s mechanical pencil to the Ryan plan. He

calculates the ag committee takes a 23 percent cut in funding under it while all other House committees get shorted 14 percent. That pummeling, he suggests, will “make it nearly impossible for the agriculture committee to write a new farm bill” in 2012. A 2012 farm bill relies on Congress and the White House working together to write a fair and responsible budget. Fair and responsible starts with one plus one equaling two. ••• Alan Guebert’s “Farm and Food File” is published weekly in more than 70 newspapers in North America.

Commentary: Consider conservation needs of your land runoff that impacts the water quality in our state and can contribute to flood flows, especially in smaller urban streams with a significant amount of development in their watersheds. So, we now have five urban conservationists who work with homeowners, developers, businesses and community leaders across the state. They help educate them about strategies and practices that can be installed so that rainwater movement is slowed down and allowed to infiltrate into the ground rather than run-off and carry any pollutants with it. They show how rain gardens, bioretention cells, soil quality restoration, native landscaping, permeable pavement and other practices can be used in new construction or made to work with existing infrastructure. They have also created a “Rainscaping Iowa” campaign. One of the goals of this effort is to train landscaping profes-

So, whether you are on the farm, living on acreage or in town, I would encourage you to take a look at your property and consider how you will manage the rain that falls on it this year. If we all take steps to take better care of precious resources we can make sure future generations can enjoy them as well. ••• This commentary was submitted by Bill Northey, Iowa secretary of agriculture.

As spring enters full swing farmers and gardeners alike are excited to kick off the growing season and plant what will hopefully be a bountiful crop. Spring also presents an opportunity to review the conservation needs on your land, whether it is a farm, acreage or an urban lot in a city or small town. Iowa gets an average of around 35 inches of rain each year, a little less in the northwest and more in the southeast, and that means each of us will receive about three feet of water on our property over the course of the year. Our department is available to help landowners of all sizes manage that water to better protect the precious natural resources in our state. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Division of Soil Conservation, partnering with Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, has been working with farmers and landowners for 70 years to help them design and install conservation practices that help prevent erosion and protect water quality. You can visit your local USDA Service Center to learn more about the assistance, both technical and financial, available through the department’s Division of Soil Conservation to support the installation of a wide variety of conservation practices. These practices, such as terraces, filter strips, grass waterways, buffers, etc., are designed to prevent rainwater from running off and carrying soil and other pollutants into our river, lakes and streams. In recent years, the department has also created an urban conservation program that takes the lessons we have learned from those 70 years of working with farmers and landowners and applies them to our urban areas. Our towns and cities also get rain and we have found that parking lots, streets and yards can also generate

Weather outlook is disturbing for growing season By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The cool, wet spring doesn’t look to improve too much as we head into the heart of the growing season. University of Minnesota climatologist Mark Seeley said, “the weather service forecast that we look at for the Western Great Lakes Region, including Minnesota, is a little bit disturbing. “We see a pattern of cooler-than-normal temperatures, therefore less-thannormal growing degree days through the month of July. And that means looking at the second half of the growing

season we’re seeing a crop that’s not only behind because of late planting but also lagging because of cooler temperatures.” Compounding this issue, Seeley said, is that generally not enough extra GDDs are picked up in August and September to compensate for the lack of GDDs in June and July. Seeley is well aware that most farmers missed the optimum April 24-May 10 planting season for corn. Last year 63 percent was planted by April 25. With continued planting delays, decreased yields are inevitable. U of M Extension research over the past three years showed corn yield was

reduced by an average of 3 percent when planting was delayed from late-April to mid-May and by 15 percent for planting delays until late-May (the equivalent of 1/2 bushel per acre per day). However, crop maturity was reduced by just four to five days for each two-week delay in planting beyond late-April. So when do you consider switching to earlier maturities, if available? According to Jeff Coulter, U of M Extension corn agronomist, “a general guideline is to stick with your planned seed choices until May 25. When planting between May 25 and May 31 planting hybrids five to seven days earlier relative maturity is advised. “Obviously planting corn in June is risky because of potential frost damage before the crop reaches maturity. You reduce that risk if you plant hybrids at least eight to 15 days earlier relative maturity than full season.” So in view of what’s happened so far in 2011, is this year an abnormal year? Seeley used the term “peculiar” to describe Minnesota weather, at least into early May. “We had a very prolonged winter with a very deep snow depth for the first time since the winter of 1995-96. We had five consecutive months of cooler-thannormal temperatures. We went into the winter season with high moisture levels in our soils and the excessive snows exacerbated the abnormally wet spring we’re still experiencing. And that of course resulted in abnormal flooding in most of our Minnesota watersheds. “It took prospects for an early spring

planting season completely out of the equation. Even if soil temperatures had warmed up normally we were facing a field traffic ability problem because soils have stayed so wet. “So yes, it has been unusual for persistence of cool temperature and a very wet and long winter.That is generally ascribed to a La Niña effect due to cooler waters in the equatorial Pacific region. Now we see La Niña dissipating to a neutral condition for the balance of the growing season. So maybe we’ll rebound and have a decent second half for 2011 to encourage a morenormal development of our crops. But looking forward to another season of field drying our crops like what happened in 2010 is highly unlikely,” Seeley said. Seeley hesitated about making a global sweep of unusual weather but did point out that parts of Europe experienced one of its harshest Decembers in history. Extremely cold temperatures and huge snow depths prevailed in many areas of Europe. “But things turned and they experienced one of the mildest Aprils in history. The level of fluctuation has been rather extreme so far this calendar year. That’s a bit worrisome in not knowing what to expect for the balance of the growing season. “Right now it’s more problematic than most years. It’s evident there are more challenges ahead in this 2011 growing season. We’ve got to be resilient; we’ve got to plan for contingencies and do the best we can. That’s about all we can hope for at this stage of our cropping season.”

Renewable energy important basis of center PRAIRIE, from pg. 9A roasting. “Biomass is becoming a very competitive fuel, especially here in the Upper Midwest where we have an abundance of biomass feedstocks in our freshly harvested corn, soybean and wheat fields,” said Ryan, whose firm is European Energy Connections and available at www.eeconnections.net. “Here at Prairie Woods we’ve provided biomass pelleted fuels for two years and have cut their heating costs about 50 percent compared to LP gas. Today we’re using hardwood pellets but we’ve burned biomass ag residue products such as soybean straw and sunflower hulls and some secondary wood waste. We’ve even blended some navy beans into our product to come up with the necessary BTU heat values and reduce ash level.” The goal of biomass pellets for fuel is 8,000 BTUs per pound and generating less than 2 percent ash. The main campus at PWELC now operates almost entirely with renewable energy. The buildings are heated by a high-efficiency biomass boiler,

pellet stoves, solar hot air panels and passive solar. Water is heated by a Solar Skies solar panel manufactured in Alexandria, Minn. The main exhibit hall is heated by a Countryside pellet stove manufactured in Hutchinson, Minn., by American Energy Systems. The maintenance building is heated by 16 solar panels which, in a previous life, had heated a swimming pool at the MinnWest Technology Campus in Willmar, when that facility was a Minnesota regional treatment center. Prairie woods indeed. Red Cedar, oak, maple, ash and elm predominate throughout the center. Recently a page of Native American history was also discovered on the grounds of the PWELC. Checked out by the Minnesota Historical Society, a large mound on one of the wooded hilltops with the Center was identified as an ancient Indian burial site about 1,200 years old with replicas of structures dating back from 8,000 years ago. Important to the financial history of this Center were significant donations

by people and organizations throughout this west central Minnesota community. Peterson mentioned the Early Olson family legacy and the Linder Foundation, both from the Willmar community, were instrumental in providing funds for the buildings. However, the key instigator for the idea of this particular environmental learning center was Gary Westby, Department of Natural Resources area conservation officer for this part of Minnesota. “He had the early vision for this center, even this location. Gary unfortunately was killed in an auto accident so the building hosting the pancake breakfast today, and many other events (including weddings and family reunion celebrations) through the year, is called the Westby Memorial Building and was funded by memorial gifts on behalf of Gary,” Peterson said. Westby’s wife later died from cancer and memorial gifts on her behalf were also dedicated to this particular building, said Peterson, now into his 19th year as a county commissioner. Today more than 200 names (starting at the $100 gift level) are listed as contributors for this bluff-top building with picturesque views over much of the scenic vistas of PWELC.

Also important to the ongoing programs of PWELC is a long-standing partnership with United Way of West Central Minnesota which recently issued a $16,500 grant to support three program areas: Serious Fun!, Everyone Outside! and Bridging Ages and Cultures through Time Travel and Living History. Time Travel programs help youth learn about the early immigrant history of Kandiyohi County and how relationships to the land and each other are shaped by the technology of the day. Dave Pederson, PWELC executive director, said the center currently serves about 60 school districts each year plus 4-H, FFA and Boy Scout troops are also frequent visitors and users of the center. That list also includes church groups, athletic teams, even corporate and company groups find the Center a great place to unwind, get a focus on the real world, and get a special touch of nature that often does wonders for better on-thejob performance. “Athletic teams come for our extensive Challenge Course programs which involve team-building programs for See PRAIRIE, pg. 12A

That Challenge Course features a two-level circuit course, Flying Squirrel and Giant’s Ladder. The PWELC is a year-round facility with about 6 miles of hiking and cross-country ski trails for the winter enthusiast. It also has rental ski and snow shoe equipment. “Everything we do at Prairie Woods is geared to getting people connected with the outdoors,” he said, and that means special classes on better understanding the environment; getting youth involved in outdoor recreation and developing in youth of all ages (adults too) what nature has to offer and what being responsive to nature is all about. With a keen eye to the future, Pederson said that the next generation of voters, policy makers, and land owners are in fourth, fifth and sixth grade today. “So we know that getting these younger kids involved and connected to nature is important to the future of our community, our state and nation.”

Minnesota now has seven environmental learning centers across the state. Some offer residential dormitory space and food service. The PWELC doesn’t have overnight accommodations although Boy Scout Troop 13 of St. Cloud was “camped out” on the floor of the Pioneer Barn the weekend of Earth Day. “We’re known as a ‘day-use’ facility so we work more within our own communities. However we do residential programs in collaborations with Green Lake Bible Camp and Decision Hills camp which houses the kids which then are bused here for a day of science fun and learning. Or we provide staff at their facilities for ‘on-site’ instruction,” Pederson said. The PWELC also functions as a host site for special teacher training sessions for things like the Master Naturalist Program. If you want to experience the “up close and personal” look at nature’s plant life and wildlife, both abound at this center. The PWELC, for example, has a deer population estimated at about 200 head. Red Tail hawk, pheasants, bald eagle, many different raptors and wild turkeys abound. And to

assist handicapped and disabled people, the PWELC also does special “wheel chair” deer and turkey hunts each fall and spring, respectively. Special trailers towed behind 4 x 4 ATVs take the participants into the woods at PWELC. “We have eight blinds and we have a dedicated group of volunteers that handle this entire program each spring and fall.” The PWELC has a small core staff with Deb Anderson coordinating the Challenge Course programs and Kory Klebe coordinating the Environmental Education programs and the youth shooting sports programs. Archery shooting with recumbent bows was part of the adventures at the Earth Day celebration. The “time travels” program which incorporates the Living History area with the Pioneer Farm is a part-time responsibility of Teri Wermerskirchen. Anne Dybsetter does the Youth Energy Summit program, better known as YES! Maintaining and improving the buildings, grounds and equipment of the PWELC is Paul Hellenschmidt. He has a strong background in wood working, construction, maintenance

and repair. He also has a degree in forestry and is a skilled carver. “Plus we have a great reservoir of volunteers and part-time paid helpers also,” Pederson said. Annual membership fees, $30 per individual and $45 per family, help defray the costs of the PWELC. Special community programs operate throughout the year. Some events include Pioneer Girls Day with youth dressing up as pioneers and doing some fun activities much like in the days of Laura Ingalls. Over 50?? Celebrate is another which, as the name implies, is for “older kids” with outdoor activities such as canoeing, climbing, archery, birding, etc. A popular event is the Great Annual Halloween Haunt with talking creatures along the enchanted trail, carving jack-o-lanterns and Climb the Wall in costume. Full Moon Canoeing is another late-September option. A special canoeing adventure is the Prairie Woods 34-foot Voyageur canoe. For more information, log on to www.prairiewoodselc.org.

‘Green’ ways to save money around the house Appliances such as DVD players, video games, cable adapter, cell phone chargers, stereo and microwaves have a standby function which consume up to 25 percent of their power while turned off. Plug these items on a power strip with an on/off switch that can be turned off at night or while you are at work. Low-flow showerheads will consume as much as 50 percent less water and reduce your energy costs of heating the

water by as much as 50 percent. Money can also be saved just by changing a habit. Pre-rinsing dishes before they go into a dishwasher unnecessarily consumes up to 6,500 gallons of water a year per household. Washing your clothes in cold water can save $60 a year on heating costs. Flushing your water heater removes sediment that can shorten its life. You may want to look at these changes

of habits as being on a “green diet.” As with all diets, you need to change your lifestyle in order to get permanent results.

According to Energy Star, programmable thermostats can save the average household $150 a year over the typical type. Compact fluorescent light bulbs use at least two-thirds less energy than standard bulbs and last 10 times longer. A $10 to $20 hot water blanket will cut your water heating bill by 4 to 9 percent. Your utility company may offer them at a low price or will provide a rebate. If your tank is older than 10 years, you might want to install a new energy efficient one.

‘EcoCommerce’ offers opportunities for farmers By TOM ROYER The Land Assistant Editor What is the value of soil? What is the value of a ton of carbon? What is the value of clean water? We frame these questions but lack a rigorous framework from which to develop a measure of these values. — From the foreward to “EcoCommerce 101.” In the first half of the 20th century, the dustbowl years brought attention to the need for conservation efforts in American agriculture. In the decades since then, a focus on improving the quality of our soil, water and air has continually broadened to the point where the majority of farmers are tremendous stewards of our environment. But what is the true value of those efforts? In his book “EcoCommerce 101”, and in the following question-andanswer session, author Tim Gieseke describes a framework by which environmental practices can be fairly evaluated — and rewarded. Q: What is EcoCommerce and why should farmers be paying attention to it?

A: EcoCommerce is a valuation system for so-called ecosystem services or ecoservices. Ecoservices are benefits such as clean water, habitat, soil tilth and carbon sequestration that are generated by the land, depending on how the land is being managed. If pollution are the bad things that leave the land such as sediment and excess nutrients, then ecoservices are the good things. Ecoservices and pollution are the opposite sides of the same coin. The demand for these ecoservices initiated from government and environmental groups, but now food processors, retailers and multinational corporations are demanding them as well. The capacity to supply these ecoservices resides with farmers and the land they manage. Although EcoCommerce recognizes that clean water, habitat and other natural resources have economic value to society, it does not state what the value should be. EcoCommerce provides a governance and valuation framework to allow those that demand these values to pay for them. It also allows these transactions to be placed with the simi-

About “EcoCommerce 101” author Tim Gieseke Gieseke grew up on his parents’ dairy and crop farm near New Ulm, Minn. After gaining some business experience in the southwest United States he returned to his home state, studying chemistry and biology at Minnesota State University-Mankato, earning a masters degree in Environmental Sciences. He worked for the Carver County Soil and Water Conservation District doing field conservation technical work. He also worked as a federal farm bill policy analyst for the Minnesota Project and developed conservation planning courses for certified crop advisers. lar and practical means that other more traditional commodities of corn, soy, cotton and other produce is traded. The additional challenge that is posed on ecoservices in comparison to grain commodities is that measurements such as bushels and pounds and direct use of these commodities is not as straightforward. In summary, EcoCommerce describes how “Farmer Kimball” will generate three income streams from his land: commodity, biomass and ecoservices. Q: What are some elements of a farmer’s operation that would be rewarded within an EcoCommerce system? A: Simply put, farmers would be rewarded for natural resource outcomes that are unique to the management of the farm. All farmers manage their land to produce goods whether that is forage, corn, soy or livestock. While they are producing these commodities they

In 2007 he started Ag Resource Strategies LLC, which integrates natural resource and production resource management. This work included managing the Minnesota Milk Producers Environmental Quality Assurance program, and developing the Livestock EQA for the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. He started farming in 1996 on the farm he grew up on, growing corn, soybeans, forage, beef and “a few wine grapes.” He and his wife, Jenny, have three young boys — Max, Isaac and Eli — who are the fifth generation of his family to grow up on their farm. — Tom Royer are also producing a certain quality and quantity water, habitat, carbon and other benefits, but no one is really accounting for those benefits. When I plant a field of corn my decisions are based on soil type, topography and cropping systems. There is value to producing corn so I focus on how to produce the most of it. If there was also value in the quantity and quality of clean water, I would figure out how to tweak the management of that corn field to produce both of these economic values. A farmer gets rewarded by bushels of corn. In EcoCommerce, he is also rewarded using a so-called water quality index. Things that cannot be measured directly, such as the wind chill, heat index and the consumer price index rely on indices. A farmer would be rewarded based on certain land management indices.

The value to the farmer is based upon this water quality “market signal” and the value associated with it. If no one steps forward to claim that they value water quality and put some economic value on it, then the activities to create a “good” water quality score and the necessary transaction will not take place. Q: Who would control the parameters and rules of an EcoCommerce system? Do you see this incorporated into a future farm bill? A: The control, or the governance of an EcoCommerce system is comparable to the question who controls the economy. Government, land grant universities and institutions currently are the primary entities that have developed and vetted various land management indices and it would be presumed that they want to maintain control of that aspect. But as these ecoservice values are identified any entity that wanted to describe a particular outcome would have the option to create one. The Western Sage Grouse Society or Pheasants Forever may decide that a specific index for the species of their choice is the best method for them to expand their habitat goals. A corn ethanol plant, in defense of their industry, may decide that a certain BTU index score is necessary for them to procure corn and increase their life cycle energy balance. General Mills, in their quest to describe “sustainability” goals for mainstream agriculture presumable has the capacity to develop a No. 2 corn production standard. With these possibilities it does become apparent that a gov-

liability protection. Monetary benefits reside in direct payments, insurance premium reductions, environmental credit trading and tax reductions. The framework developed in EcoCommerce has the means to allow farmers to capture all these values. The concept of “tragedy of the commons” refers to one individual causing pollution that effects many without a cost imposed on the polluting individual. In EcoCommerce, this concept is flipped over to create “opportunities of the commons” in that one individual generating ecoservices benefits many with a value returned to that individual. For instance, I manage my farm, let’s say to create a water index score of 75 on a scale of zero to 100. These types of indices have been developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and land grant universities throughout the United States. Within the concept of “opportunities of the commons,” a cheese processor/retailer states that their “sustainable cheese” is procured from dairy farms that are managed for a water quality score of 70. The Environmental Protection Agency states that a farm managed for a water quality score of 78 meets the Total Maximum Daily Load plan (water quality standards). The environmental liability insurance company states that farms with a water quality score of 80 receives a 5-percent premium reduction due to the lessened risk of a fish kill. The county says that all farms that meet a water quality score of 70 meet their county water plan and receive a 3-percent tax break. The corn ethanol plant, in defense that it is causing downstream pollution, states that it will procure corn from farmers that have a water quality score of 68. Each one of these entities value “sustainability” in some manner and if they have to answer to someone (stock and stakeholders) then they need the data to back that up. They will procure this data along with traditional stocks they are purchasing.

THE LAND, MAY 13, 2011

GIESEKE, from pg. 14A Another tier of value can be acquired from food processors as they will value ecoservices data that is aggregated from all the land that they depend on to process the foods. For example, I was asked by a cheese processor if EcoCommerce could define “sustainability” for one of their major cheese retail outlets. In an EcoCommerce framework, the farmer receives value to manage to a level of sustainability and then that data in aggregate becomes a value to the cheese processor. With today’s technology, this data can flow quite easily from farm to processor to retailer. Q: Does modern precision agriculture play a role in the application of EcoCommerce? A: Precision ag allows EcoCommerce to be applied more accurately and efficiently. Land management indices, which is the valuation system of EcoCommerce, can be generated nearly simultaneously with the data contained within precision ag systems. In fact, precision ag technology has transcended the capacity of the traditional government conservation agencies so that agriculture is teaching government staff on how precision ag meets their conservation and water quality goals. In one sense, it is precision ag that is allowing the center of the governance of on-farm natural resources to shift from government agencies to the private sector. It will become the natural resource outcomes from the farm that are valued by industry, retailers and government, not the cost of delivering conservation programs to the farmer. Q: Who exactly is rewarding farmers in this system? Where does the money come from? Are you talking about more than just dollars and cents? A: Economic value can be described in both monetary and non-monetary means. Non-monetary value resides in market access, regulatory compliance and

‘Free market’ may not offer best signals for environment GIESEKE, from pg. 15A ernment entity, such as the USDA’s new Office of Environment Markets would perhaps not create these indices, but ensure they meet certain standards and can be integrated within an index criteria. So the governance of the index approval and coordination may reside within the USDA. The other major aspect of EcoCommerce is the data that describes the onfarm scores and the management of the aggregate data of a particular “shed.” That component may reside in the private or in a non-profit organization that represents agricultural producers. Because the EcoCommerce values much broader than the government, the governance of this component would lie outside of the government. When the Conservation Security Program (now Conservation Stewardship Program) emerged in the 2002 farm bill, it had the potential to create

an EcoCommerce-type of framework. In my opinion, the CSP is a relatively dysfunctional program because it relies too heavily on a practice-based mentality and its objectives cannot be integrated within the numerous new stakeholders in the private sector that have emerged in the last decade. EcoCommerce will not succeed as a standalone government program, but it will succeed if certain governance components, as discussed above, are included in the farm bill. As a policy analyst working on the federal farm bill during the early CSP years, I stated that to keep the CSP simple, yet effective, the CSP could start out by saying that the farmers with a Soil Conditioning Index of 0.1 would receive $15/acre. Farmers would then ask what an SCI is, they would ask their agronomist what their farm SCI is, and then ask (if applicable) what they would need to do to increase their score to 0.1 and then decide if it was worth $15/acre. I was then asked, “What if no one

signed up?” My reply, “Then we would begin to understand what our natural resources are worth within the context of our economy.” Q: In your book you talk about Adam Smith’s concept of an “invisible hand” guiding a free market. Why do you say this has failed in protecting the environment? Why is a farmer’s bottom line not an adequate defense? A: The concept of the invisible hand is based on the collective objectives of individuals to meet their self interests and in doing, meets the interests of society as a whole. The effort of each provides the utility for others to meet their goals most efficiently. This works wonderfully if no economic externalities exist. But as a farmer, if the price of corn is $6 per bushel and the price of fertilizer is very cheap, the invisible hand will guide the farmer to apply an increasing amount of fertilizer without regard to any downstream users. The financial gain from adding more fertilizer may diminish, but it may still be economically advantageous for the farmer if fertilizer is cheap. Since there is no market signal for clean water and there is not a significant cost to the farmer to lose some cheap fertilizer then those economics will play out as those farmers will experience the most economic gain. If fertilizer costs go up, but the cost of erosion remains an externality, at least in the short run, other economics play out.

When more than 50 percent of the land in some Midwestern states is rented out, some on a year-to-year basis, it becomes economically irrational for farmers to focus on natural resource management as there is no economic value associated with their self interests. With an EcoCommerce framework, numerous stakeholders and stockholders can provide farmers with another market signal for them to consider. Q: Cities are told by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to clean up their wastewater or be fined. Will farmers find themselves in a similar situation? A: If agriculture allows the EPA and the USDA to take the lead role in water governance, there will be a far greater chance that farmers will find themselves in a similar situation as the cities are in and that they either clean up their water runoff or be fined. If agriculture, that is farmers, agribusiness, agro-professionals and agro-industries, understands their options and the EcoCommerce values associated with their farm operations, then they can progress toward the next green revolution without apologizing or leaving themselves open to random and unsubstantiated criticisms — and generated some welldeserved EcoCommerce income. “EcoCommerce 101” can be purchased at major retail bookstores and on Amazon.com.

What was MNSEP’s reaction to news that they received the awards? “We were excited,” Hathaway said. MNSEP “thrives off of publicity and word of mouth.” The award allowed the organization to be “put in front of a whole bunch of new faces.” While the organization has helped young people with making environmental changes for the better, it has also changed future aspirations for its own leaders. “No question that this has changed my aspirations,” Hathaway said. He called his experience with MNSEP an educational one as he gets to work with professionals on a daily basis. It has also helped improve his public speaking abilities. What advice does Hathaway have for other young people who are interested in taking steps to help the environment? “Just do it. ...

THE LAND, MAY 13, 2011

By KRISTIN KVENO The Land Correspondent Many readers may remember those carefree days of high school, pondering your life ambitions and, more importantly, deciding who you were going to ask to the prom. You may imagine that today’s youth are focused on even more frivolous tasks than you were. Well, in 2008, three students at Mayo High School in Rochester, Minn., got together to form a company whose aim was to limit energy consumption and promote sustainable energy resources. Not exactly your typical teenage after-school job, but this company is trying to get young people involved in using alternative means for energy sources. The former high schoolers, Patrick Allen, Ian Cameron and Tom Currier, decided they wanted to raise money for solar panels at their school. They accomplished that feat and shortly thereafter formed a nonprofit corporation called the Minnesota Student Energy Project. Allen, Cameron and Currier have since graduated from high school but the MNSEP remains active thanks to its current members, including Ian Hathaway, its chief marketing officer. Hathaway said that the idea to use solar panels was two-fold — first as a renewable energy source, and second because the panels could be strategically placed so “you can’t ignore them,” he said. It stands as a tangible reminder that alternative energy sources like this is attainable. Hathaway, a junior at Mayo High School was recruited last year to join MNSEP, which is composed entirely of volunteers. MNSEP works with schools to raise funds for solar panels for those schools. The school’s student body must raise one-third of the cost and MNSEP donates the remaining two-thirds. Their goal is to have 25 schools by the end of 2013, Hathaway said. As of now they have four schools in

SWCD, counties find efficiencies in cooperation Minnesota’s financial crisis putting Soil and Water Conservation District work in jeopardy By TIM KING The Land Correspondent Minnesota has had Soil and Water Conservation Districts since the late 1930s when the first SWCD was formed in Winona County. Currently, there is an SWCD in all of Minnesota’s 87 counties. Polk, St. Louis and Otter Tail counties each have two. Conservation cistricts have always been independent government agencies with a board of elected supervisors. State law requires county governments to support them. The law does not say what kind of support, or how much, counties have to provide. But, over the decades, SWCDs and county agencies have become closely linked. Some SWCD and county officials have reexamined their relationship as the nature of county government has changed. In the early 1990s Pipestone County SWCD entered into a cooperative agreement with the county. In 1996 the Rock County SWCD merged with Rock County government. In the last decade the Watonwan County SWCD had conversations with the county that were inconclusive. The Todd County SWCD is currently having discussions with the county about developing a closer relationship.

TILE PLOWS FARM DRAINAGE PLOWS, INC. or Wurdinger Tile Plows

Two reasons appear to inspire these conversations and revised relationships. Forward thinking “Some forward-thinking county commissioners and district supervisors in the early 1990s decided it would be efficient to combine all the offices dealing with the environment,” said Ian Cunningham, a supervisor with the Pipestone SWCD. “We have not merged with the county but we have a cooperative agreement with them.” The practical result was that the Pipestone County Conservation and Zoning Office was created. The SWCD continued with its own employees and governing board of supervisors. But the Conservation and Zoning Office, which also includes solid waste, recycling, planning and zoning, feedlot oversight, GIS, and weed and seed inspection, are all under the supervision of a manager employed by the county. Kyle Krier, who is currently the manager of the office, said the management style is somewhat nontraditional in that it focuses on cooperation between the individual departments so as to better serve the public. “We have a lot of cross-training so people in other departments can help the public across the departments,” Krier said. “Sometimes the public doesn’t know that SWCD isn’t a county office. They just want a service.” Cunningham attributes the success of the SWCD cooperative agreement with the county to excellent

interdepartmental communication and the vision of those 1990s county commissioners. They brought Extension, and the other county agencies, into the same building as the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency and SWCD. “If a landowner comes here and we can’t help them, somebody in the building probably can,” he said. The Pipestone SWCD’s cooperative agreement involved long-term planning. Rock County SWCD’s merger with the county involved short-term necessity. “When the merger took place the SWCD only had six months of operating funds and was very limited in what they could provide,” said Doug Bos, of Rock County SWCD. “The merger has provided for greater capacity of services and raised the visibility of our office and what we do. I think if you ask any of our landowners they will tell you that service to our residents has greatly improved.” Under the merger, the SWCD employees became employees of the Rock County Land Management Department. The Land Management Department also includes Solid Waste and Planning and Zoning. The county offices are in the USDA Service Center with the FSA and NRCS. Bos said that makes for a one-stop shop for landowners. Under the merger, the Rock County SWCD continued to exist in that the Board of Supervisors is still elected separately and they continue to set general policy for the agency. They also allocate cost-share funding but they do not set their budget or hire their staff. See SWCD, pg. 19A

Rohr: ‘We can’t do it alone; we must protect our legacy’ orate with Todd County. We can’t do it alone and we must protect our legacy.” Todd SWCD is considering moving its offices into the county courthouse with Planning and Zoning and GIS. Unlike Rock and Pipestone SWCDs, however, Todd SWCD is considering moving out of the USDA Service Center. Rohr said that a declining number of SWCD customers are farmers and, as a result, don’t use the services of the USDA. She believes that SWCD’s services will improve if the agency joins forces with the county land offices in some way. Dale Katterhagen, a dairy farmer and SWCD supervisor, supports a closer relationship with the county but takes a longer view regarding landowner services. “Some services with the county offices would improve and the services

with USDA will not,” Katterhagen said. “But some time in the future the USDA office may get moved out of Long Prairie (Todd County) as they cut budgets. It’s important to be proactive and get out ahead of these things.” While Rohr and Katterhagen attempt to anticipate state and federal intentions as a way to preserve the conservation legacy of Todd County SWCD, Todd County Commissioner Randy Neumann is concerned the SWCD’s reputation as a landowner educator and helper may be damaged by joining forces with Planning and Zoning. Neumann said that the requirement of Planning and Zoning to enforce laws may run counter to

SWCD’s mission to assist landowners. That hasn’t been the case in either Rock or Pipestone counties, but neither of them have lakes with their complex land use issues. Todd County has many lakes. “I am thankful everyday that we don’t have any lakes in the county,” said Eric Hartman, the director of Rock County SWCD. “We have avoided a lot of controversy because of that.” Whatever Todd SWCD decides to do, the decision will be based on a desire to protect and continue a legacy of decades of soil and water conservation work. That was exactly what motivated the Rock and Pipestone counties SWCDs more than a decade ago.

SWCD, from pg. 18A Funding hit Todd County SWCD is not suffering from the financial crisis that Rock County SWCD experienced. SWCD Administrator Sandy Rohr is deeply concerned about the potential of declining state support for programs that Todd County SWCD administers, however. Grants from the state of Minnesota for water planning, wetlands permitting and feedlots will likely be cut or even disappear because of the state’s financial crisis, she said. “State law says that landowners have to have a permit to work in wetlands but if we don’t have any money we won’t be able to do any permit work,” Rohr said. “How will we be able to issue permits? I don’t know how else to assure the continuity of our programs and initiatives unless we collab-

In another demand-side story, schools across the United States, and most recently Los Angeles, are grappling with whether flavored milk should be eliminated. Julie Buric, vice president of the International Dairy Foods Association’s Milk Processor Education Program, reported in Wednesday’s DairyLine radio program that the topic became more relevant as the incoming superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, announced on network television that he would recommend the elimination of all flavored milk from the school system. Superintendent John Deasy made his announcement along with Jamie Oliver, host of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” who, for several years has been engaged in a public battle to influence school meals by removing what he calls “sugary milk” from schools, Buric said. Buric countered, pointing out that “milk has key nutrients, such as potassium, calcium and protein, which other beverages simply don’t bring to the table. ... If flavored milk leaves the lunchroom, its nine essential nutrients can leave with it.” Milk consumption among children has steadily dropped the past 20 years, Buric said, and “chances are if they don’t drink See MIELKE, pg. 25A

MIELKE, from pg. 24A milk in schools they are not drinking it at home.” Proponents of eliminating flavored milk believe youth will switch to white milk when it’s the only option but a MilkPEP study showed that school milk consumption dropped an average of 35 percent when flavored milk was eliminated. Buric said, “Kids are more likely to throw the white milk away and replace it with nutritionally void sugary beverages, such as soda and juice drinks.” The dairy industry is urging the school district to take a more holistic look at their school meal planning, Buric said. “Flavored milk alone is not making children fat. The obesity epidemic can’t be solved by eliminating flavored milk, but it can be solved by encouraging children to play for 60 minutes each day, cut out empty calories in beverages, and consume more good-for-you foods, such as milk, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.” For additional information and resources on the nutritional value of flavored milk, log on to www.milkpep.org. ■ The National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments was considering changes to the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance which would lower the national somatic cell count standard incrementally in 2012 and 2013, reaching 400,000 cells per milliliter in 2014. The current standard is 750,000 cells. The NMPF’s Chris Galen reported on DairyLine that the proposal failed by one vote so the “status quo prevails.” He theorized that opponents view the PMO as a milk safety process and that somatic cell counts are not a milk safety issue, though Galen quickly added that it is a milk quality issue and is why the federation supported the proposal. He also said that there are lawmakers considering the issue legislatively and USDA Secretary, Tom Vilsack, supported the change so it’s not likely the last word we’ll hear on this but it won’t come up via the NCIMS any time soon because it doesn’t meet for another two years. ••• Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

The Leader In Feeders! Famous for minimum feed waste!

Alfalfa scissors cut harvest alerts planned for this year The Central Minnesota Forage Council, University of Minnesota Extension staff and cooperating farmers and agribusiness people will be taking scissors cut alfalfa samples and Predictive Equation of Alfalfa Quality stick readings again in 2011. Sites are being arranged in Stearns, Benton, Morrison and Wright counties. The first samples will likely be taken on May 12 or 16. Samples will be taken on Mondays and Thursdays until the field is harvested. Questions about this project in Stearns, Benton and Morrison counties can be referred to Extension Educator Dan Martens at (800) 964-4929 or (320) 968-5077 if a local call to Foley. For information in Carver and Scott counties, call Laura Kieser at (952) 466-5300. Information will be shared by radio, website and a call-in phone message. For radio, check KASM 1150 AM from Albany and from Little Falls 960 AM and WYRQ 92.1. The website is Minnesota Crop News at http://blog.lib.umn.edu/efans/crop news. Look for “Hay Information” on the left side of the Crop News Page. A phone message report can be heard by calling the Benton County Extension Office at (320) 968-5077 if a local call to Foley or (800) 964-4929. When the phone is answered enter 5081. For more information about using alfalfa scissors cut sampling or PEAQ readings log on to www.extension.umn.edu/forages. There are articles for using these tools with alfalfa and with alfalfa-grass mix crops and a link to the Minnesota Crop News site. You can request printed copies of articles that tell about using this in your fields. Harvesting correct quality alfalfa and other forage corps lays the foundation for rations that support efficient milk production in dairy cows and other livestock enterprises. Forage growers and agronomy and nutrition advisers can use several tools and strategies for gauging the growth and maturity of the alfalfa crop for harvest decisions. Present and past experiences are good indicators of whether strategies are working well on individual farms or whether some adjustments might be useful. PEAQ means “predictive equation for alfalfa quality” based on the height and maturity. A “PEAQ” stick was developed at the University of Wisconsin —

marked for relative feed value or relative feed quality related to height and vegetative, bud and blossom stages. We usually start checking fields when the crop is about 16 inches tall. PEAQ sticks can be purchased through the Midwest Forage Association website www.midwestforage.org or by calling (651) 484-3888. For scissors cut sampling, take a fresh cut sample at random locations in an alfalfa field and have the sample analyzed at a forage testing lab. The recommendation is to take at least three samples at three- to four-day intervals ahead of when the alfalfa might be cut to estimate a trend for how the crop is developing. This means starting about two weeks ahead of expected harvest. Cutting decisions are based on neutral detergent fiber, RFV or RFQ targets. NDF of alfalfa in the feed manger is generally 3 to 6 percentage units higher than a fresh cut sample because of harvest and storage losses. To have alfalfa feed at 40 NDF or less, harvest might start when fresh cut NDF is around 35. RFV and RFQ numbers might drop 10 to 25 points for these reasons. To have alfalfa feed at 160 RFV or RFQ, harvest might start when fresh cut samples read 180. The margin allowed for harvest and storage loss can depend on the time needed to complete harvest. Weather is often the driving factor for hay harvest. Growers often need to have equipment ready and look for a break in the weather that gives them a chance to get close to feed quality goals. A North Dakota State University forage specialist suggests as alfalfa gets to be 22 to 24 inches tall, we ought to be taking a close look at the weather and maturity of the crop for dairy quality hay. Alfalfa is slow to start this spring along with a slow start for other spring work. Some alfalfa could still be ready for harvest by the last week in May, depending on the weather of course. ••• This article was submitted by Dan Martens, University of Minnesota Extension educator for Stearns, Benton and Morrison (Minn.) counties.

Stomach aches can be serious for dogs if not treated It may seem like Sparky has a castiron stomach, but even he could be susceptible to “bloat.” The technical term is gastric dilatation-volvulus, an extremely serious condition that can result in death. “Gastric dilatation-volvulus, also known as ‘bloat’, primarily occurs in deep-chested, large breed dogs,” said Michael Willard, professor at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Willard explained that bloating of the stomach is sometimes also associated with twisting (volvulus) of the stomach. Signs may include unproductive gagging and retching, abdominal discomfort and/or distention, shock, difficulty breathing, and in some cases even death. Diet, exercise, and the size and depth of a dog’s chest may be predisposing factors. While GDV is less common in pets than many other emergency conditions, owners of large breed dogs

should be aware of the rapid and often fatal effects of GDV. GDV is a significant cause of death in large breed dogs. Animals with GDV that are diagnosed and treated early have a survival rate of about 70 percent. Willard advises any dog owners who believe that their dog has developed this condition to take it to a veterinarian immediately. He or she will decompress the stomach and treat the animal for shock by administering fluids. When the patient has been stabilized, the veterinarian may need to perform surgery to untwist the gut, if twisting has occurred. “GDV cannot reliably be prevented. In some cases, the twisting of the gut can be avoided by a surgical procedure (called gastropexy), in which the stomach is sutured (stitched) to the abdominal

wall,”Willard said.“Prophylactic gastroplexy may greatly lessen the risk of recurrence, but it is does not completely eliminate it.” Unfortunately, there are no medications that will cure GDV. It can become fatal in as little as four to six hours, and it is costly to treat. Willard estimates the average cost of treating a GDV case with surgery to be between $2,000 and $5,000, but if there are complications, the cost could be much higher. Dogs that have had GDV in the

past are at a higher risk of developing it again. Given the rapid and fatal effects of GDV, owners should not wait to see if the ailing dog improves on its own. ••• Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Low-carb diet for cats Cats are metabolically adapted for higher protein, low-carbohydrate diets, a college researcher said. “More than 35 percent of cats in the United States are overweight or obese,” said Debra L. Zoran, a clinical assistant professor of Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Age, sex and activity level are all factors that influence the weight of a cat; however, feeding style is a significant contributor to obesity rates. Traditional weight loss plans include low-fat, high-carbohydrate foods. However, cats are not traditional animals when it comes to their ideal diet. “Cats are not only carnivores but they are obligate carnivores, meaning they require additional protein and other nutrients that are only present in animal tissue,” Zoran said. Zoran said that cats utilize protein for energy, even in the face of large amounts of carbohydrates in the diet. “Because cats lack salivary amylase and have low concentrations of other carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, digestion of sugars is very inefficient in cats,” Zoran said.

“When it comes to cat food, extra carbohydrates only mean extra calories, which, if not burned for energy, are stored as fat.” In addition to their enzyme deficiencies, a cat’s small intestine is much shorter than that of an equally sized omnivore such as a dog. Felines have longer gastrointestinal tracts, which allow them to handle complex carbohydrates. Instead of slimming down a fat cat, a high-carbohydrate, high-fiber diet may lead to abnormal intestinal function or even diarrhea. “While these (low-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-fiber) diets may result in weight loss, they do so to the detriment of lean body mass which is protein in muscles,” Zoran said. “Losing lean body mass often contributes to weight regain because cats’ appetites are not reduced and satiety, or a sense of satisfaction, is never reached.” Past studies evaluating the use of a canned low-carbohydrate, high-protein (45 percent or higher) diet for weight loss in cats has revealed that all cats lost weight and maintained lean body mass.

Easter service in cold historic church warms the heart of Jesus was given by Aaron Evenson. He told about the scourging that Jesus endured. From John 19:1-3 TLB: Then Pilate laid open Jesus’ back with a leaded whip, and the soldiers made a crown of thorns and placed it on his head. “Hail King of the Jews” they mocked, and struck him with their fists. Pastor Evenson shared how he had injured his own hand with a nail gun and had bruised the bones in his hand. He said the pain was unbearable, but must have been little compared to that which Jesus suffered. Pastor Joe Ocker shared scripture concerning the time when Jesus died. In Luke 23:45-46: The light from the sun was gone, and suddenly the veil hanging in the temple split apart. Then Jesus

shouted, “Father I commit my spirit to you,” and with those words he died. Pastor Ocker shared with us how the veil in the temple was actually about four inches thick. A heavy veil, which separated the Holy place from the Holy of Holies, where only the High Priest could enter, and then only once a year. This illustrates how Jesus allows us access to God the Father through him. We no longer need a high priest to intercede for us, because now Jesus is our High Priest. ••• Sue Peterson has been writing “The Yield” column since 1978 and has been a staple of The Land.

No need for fuss for the puss sight of canned food, but no worries, there are also dry food options that provide highprotein and low-carbohydrate nutrition. However, Zoran recommends that most cats be fed at least some canned food as part of their diet to reduce both carbohydrate intake and overall caloric intake. “Dry foods tend to be very calorie dense,” Zoran said, “feeding them only 50 percent canned food is a good starting point.” ••• Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences,Texas A&M University.

CATS, from pg. 28A “These diets not only resulted in sustained weight loss in these cats, but also in normalization of appetite because they are satiated,” Zoran said. This does not mean that cat owners need to bake some blackened tilapia for Tiger or slap some ribs on the grill. A high-protein diet for your cat does not call for extra fuss; suitable foods can be found in the pet food aisle. “The best commercial diets for achieving a high protein, low-carb profile are canned foods like those used for growth, such as kitten foods, or canned diets specially designed for adult diabetic cats,” Zoran said.

he small pockets of snow T along the trails will have been long gone by mid-May, but the mysterious mounds of earth in the northeast Iowa bluffs above the Mississippi River remain, as they have for thousands of years. “We ask that as you walk over this land to please remember this is sacred ground to those of the mound building culture.” The oldest and most numerous are round domes, between 10 and 20 feet in diameter and anywhere from 2 to 8 feet high. The ancient people of this region began burying their dead in mounds such as these about 2,500 years ago. A single mound might hide beneath it multiple burial spots, each of several bodies — along with copper ornaments under layers of clamshells, limestone pebbles and earth. “The descendants of this culture are not a lost people but rather living, thriving American Indian cultures that today reside in what is now called the Midwest.” Over hundreds of years, this American Indian culture began creating burial sites as 100-foot-long linear mounds, or connected series of linear and round shapes nearly 500 feet long. Around 1,400 years ago effigy mounds — mostly in the form of great bears and birds — started to appear. Six hundred years later, as these hunter-gatherers transitioned to permanent villages and agriculture, the moundbuilding ceased. “These native descendants continue to honor their ancestors buried here in religious ceremonies on these sacred sites.”

Effigy Mounds National Monument, 3 miles north of Marquette, Iowa These ceremonial mounds provide their creators’ descendants with a connection to the spirit world, and to the land upon which their ancestors once lived freely. For the rest of us, they offer the opportunity to walk trails along majestic river bluffs, experience beautiful views of the Mississippi River valley, and reflect upon the mystery of

a culture that is somehow both long gone and still with us to this day ... if only we slow down long enough to see it. “Please enjoy and respect your time among the ‘old ones’ as their spirits will watch over you while you are here.” For more information on Effigy Mounds National Monument, call (563) 873-3491 or log on to www.nps.gov/efmo.

Grain Outlook Liquidation follows world news

Livestock Angles

Grain Angles

Consumer resistance December contract meets meat markets does key reversal The livestock markets suffered a strong downward pressure in both the cash and futures over the past few weeks. Weakening demand as well as huge commodity fund liquidation in the futures were the catalysts behind the weakness in both of the markets. The cattle have finally found an area in price where consumer resistance has slowed the demand for beef. Since the second week in April, the beef cutouts as well as the live market and the futures have been sliding to lower levels. The fact that consumers are beginning to resist the higher prices of beef is coming from a deteriorating disposable income as all commodity prices have advanced subJOE TEALE stantially over the past six months. Broker Great Plains Commodity The actual and perceived advance Afton in consumer price index is weighing heavy on the consuming public and thus the decline in the boxed beef sales. Exports are also beginning to decline, and the U.S. dollar has appeared to have found a short-term low over the past couple of weeks, which should keep export business questionable. With the futures market oversold and a discount to the recent cash trade, a rally in the futures market seems plausible, but a sustained rally would be questionable as the fundamentals of the cattle market seem to be negative at this time. Those fundamentals include more cattle on feed than a year ago and with the dry conditions in the southwestern parts of the United States likely causing the early movement of feeder cattle into feedlots should continue to keep supplies of marketable cattle ample. Producers are urged to use rallies to protect inventories through the summer.

Commodity markets have been showing signs of exhaustion over the last couple weeks. Crude oil has fallen $10 per barrel from its recent high; gold has lost $87 per ounce and silver $14 per ounce or 34 percent. The old crop corn market which has been the driving force in the grain markets, is even giving up some its luster. The spread between the July and December corn contracts has been in an inverse (July higher than December) and peaked on March 1 at $1.33 1/2; as of this writing it was at $0.46. The cool, wet spring weather that has challenged corn planting has moved the focus of the corn market TOM NEHER to the December contract (new crop). On April 20, the December contract AgStar VP Agribusiness & Grain Specialist experienced, what technical anaRochester lysts call, a “key reversal.” This is when a market makes a new contract high and then closes below the previous day’s low. The December contract traded to a new contract high of $6.84 per bushel and then closed at $6.55 1/2; lower than the previous day’s $6.67 low trade. In markets that are experiencing extreme volatility, “key reversals” are generally retested and sometimes taken out. On April 26 the market traded back up to $6.84 and did not trade higher, but closed at $6.75 3/4. A “key reversal” is a strong technical indicator of a major change in the trend of a market. Could the party in the commodity markets be over? While some individual markets haven’t confirmed that the upward trends have ended, the general performance of commodity markets over the past few weeks has indicated that the rallies were stalling out.

The following market analysis is for the week ending May 6. CORN — Liquidation. That about covers it. But since we don’t want to leave a big blank space, here are some other factors that affected the markets this week. The markets started off the week with the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed, which was viewed as positive for the U.S. dollar and sent commodities lower. The thought behind this was that it took some of the risk premium out of the world’s political situation; with him gone the PHYLLIS NYSTROM world was more stable. Country Hedging Energies in particular were St. Paul sharply weaker on the announcement. The dollar was only slightly firmer when the dust settled on the news. As the week progressed it was apparent a general liquidation of long commodity positions was occurring. Metal markets also experienced the sell-off with gold losing more than $69 per ounce this week. Some fund managers advised clients to lighten their exposure to commodities, believing for the time being the major move up was done. Energies plummeted on the perception global economies may not rebound as quickly as had been anticipated. Crude oil dropped below $100 per barrel for the first time since March 17. The U.S. dollar gained strength when the European Central Bank did not raise interest rates. China’s SinoGrain this week said they have no interest in

Soybeans suffer fund liquidation, lack of demand NYSTROM, from pg. 1B buying U.S. corn beyond the 1 million metric tons they have already purchased (of which they reportedly have loaded one cargo). Weekly export sales were pathetic at only 11.2 million bushels for old crop and nothing for new crop, bringing total yearly sales below last year for the first time in several months. Weather continues to be a feature in the grain market and will continue to be until the crop is in the bin this fall. Warmer, drier conditions this past week allowed growers to finally hit the field; although not en masse, certainly in the best numbers so far this year. Planting progress however will still lag the average as of May 8. Estimates for the May 9 report are in the upper 20s when the average is 59 percent complete. Corn planting was only 13 percent complete last week versus the average of 40 percent complete. There was nothing done east of the Mississippi River. Looking at this from an acreage view by state, it’s estimated that 14.6 million acres of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 2011 forecasted acreage of 92.2 million has been planted. If we were on average by state, then 38.4 million acres would be in the ground. Once we get past the middle of May the concern about yield loss should rise significantly. What Mother Nature throws at us next will be closely monitored to see what kind of start the crop gets. The monthly USDA crop report will be released May 11. This will be the first glimpse we have of the 2011-12 balance sheets. It will be curious to see if the USDA keeps the corn yield at the trendline 161.7 bushels per acre or whether they lower it slightly due to the later planting.

At week’s end, Informa Economics released their updated production forecasts: corn acreage 91.9 million acres, down 300,000 acres from the USDA’s March number and 2.7 million more acres than last year; yield 163.8 bu./acre versus USDA’s trendline 161.7 bu./acre (last year’s yield was 152.8 bu./acre); production 13.842 billion bushels, up 1.395 billion from last year. Ethanol production was down this week to 875,000 barrels from 883,000 last week. A group of U.S. senators this week introduced a bill to end/revamp the ethanol subsidy of 45 cents per gallon and the 54 cent per gallon import tariff. It may include a phase-out of the credit through 2013, and then link it to the price of oil, i.e. as the price of oil goes up, the subsidy goes down. July corn easily filled the gap at $7.01 left on the chart after the March 31 Grain Stocks and Prospective Plantings report, putting in a weekly low at $6.80 3/4 per bushel. Don’t count out at least another weather scare or influx of fund money before it’s all said and done. Next’s week’s current forecast puts moisture in the forecast for the eastern Corn Belt. First support in the July contract is $6.67; first resistance $7.23 1/2, then $7.61 1/2. For the December contract, the top of the gap left March 31 is support at $6.25 1/4, resistance $6.62 1/2 per bushel. OUTLOOK: There wasn’t just a single event or news item that precipitated the rollover in corn, but a combination of a massive exodus of fund money, improving planting weather, weaker demand and higher dollar that rolled the corn market over this week. Some market chatter about Greece considering resuming its own currency and abandoning the euro put strength under the U.S. dollar, which in turn accelerated the rush to exit commodity markets. Next week’s first look at the 2011-12 USDA balance sheets may remind us that stocks for this year are tight and we haven’t gotten off to the best start with new crop. These markets are not for the faint of heart. July corn collapsed 70 1/4 cents or 9 1/4 percent this week to settle at $6.86 1/4. The December contract was down 29 1/4 cents to close at $6.40 1/4 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans suffered fund liquidation and a lack of demand this week as prices plunged. Soybeans have been struggling and with the demise of corn and energy prices, the losses piled on. Celeres raised their Brazilian crop estimate from 70.56 mmt to 72.55 mmt, closer to the USDA’s 72 mmt projection. Crude oil posted five consecutive lower closes this week, the longest losing streak in eight weeks. The July soybean contract closed at $13.26, plunging 68 cents for the week; the November contract lost 65 3/4 cents to close at $13.08 1/2 per bushel. The outlook for the economy is not as rosy as many had been hoping to enjoy. This week’s jobless claims were higher than expectations, but the increase in

jobs was better than expected. The unemployment rate however did increase from 8.8 percent to 9.0 percent. Weekly export sales were extremely low at only 770,000 bushels for old crop. While we are at 96 percent of the USDA’s yearly forecast, we still need nearly 4 million bushels of sales per week to achieve that estimate. South America is the source of choice with prices 30 to 40 cents cheaper than U.S. supplies. China failed to get any bids on the 300,000 metric tons of reserve soybeans they offered at auction this week. The USDA did not issue a soybean planting report this past week due to lack of progress. Usually, we do see a report by the first week of May. Average planting progress as of May 8 is 17 percent. Informa Economics’ latest 2011 crop estimates indicate soybean acreage at 76.0 million acres, down 598,000 acres from the March USDA report and down 1.4 million acres from last year. Using a yield of 44.1 bu./acre (trendline is 43.4 bu./acre); they estimate this year’s crop at 3.309 billion bushels. This is down 20 million bushels from last year when yields were 43.5 bu./acre. In other news this week, the Army Corps of Engineers blew a two-mile breach in the levee at Birds Point on the Mississippi River to prevent flooding of Cairo, Ill. They estimated that 130,000 acres of farmland and 90 farmsteads would be flooded as a result. Going into the weekend, the ACE closed the Mississippi River south of Caruthersville, Mo., to traffic due to flooding. There is talk that this could be extended to areas north also. OUTLOOK: Until money re-enters the market or demand reappears, beans will remain in their follower role. More than adequate South American stocks for export at the expense of U.S. supplies, flat demand (no China) and the possibility of some corn acres going to beans, will be fundamental challenges for soybeans. Look for large trading ranges with next support in the July soybean contract at $12.78 and resistance at $13.65 per bushel. For the November contract, a wide range with support at $12.38 and resistance at $13.82 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ended May 6: crude oil broke below $100 per barrel for the first time since March 17, trading a range this week from $114.83 to $94.63 per barrel. In dollar terms, it was the biggest weekly loss in crude oil since trading began in 1983. June crude oil was down $16.75 per barrel for the week, settling at $97.18 per barrel. Heating oil crashed 43 cents, gasoline plunged nearly 31 cents and natural gas dipped 45 1/2 cents. Minneapolis July wheat lost 44 1/4 cents, Kansas City wheat down 28 cents and Chicago was down 41 3/4 cents. Gold plummeted $69.60 per ounce this week and silver nose-dived 28 percent or $13.52 per ounce. The Dow lost 171 points for the week and the U.S. dollar jumped 1.83 points. The next USDA monthly crop production report will be released May 11.


Grain profit bubble has been stretched; when will it pop? Managing a late start to soybeans

speculative bubble. The “Go-Go Days” of the Russian grain markets in the 1970s crashed on the stroke of the “embargo pen.” The “Dot.Com” bubble of the late 1990s popped when “Y2K” failed to materialize and was slammed with the Sept. 11, 2001, bombing of the World Trade Center. The popping of our recent housing bubble has buried our general economy in to the “Great Recession” and likely will take several more years to recover. We in grain production have been involved in a six to seven-year run of profitability. This is twice as long as the normal three-year cycle. It appears that the bubble has stretched; when it will pop no one knows. Let us remember that the best “Black Swan” insurance is to “self insure” with proactive management, building working capital reserves and making prudent capital investments.

Hog rallies will be short in duration TEALE, from pg. 1B Hog prices have been falling since the week of the Easter holiday. It is possible that during this week the hog market reached the spring high, a seasonal pattern of hog prices over past years. The fact that demand for pork product has been declining is due in part to lower domestic disposable income and has thus hurt that consumer demand. Because of this weakening demand, it is quite likely we have seen the late spring seasonal top early this year. Supplies of live animals appear to be adequate to meet the current demand and with cold storage supplies on the increase, it would now appear that rallies in the hog market will be short in duration. The fact that the relationship between the price of beef and pork are wide at this juncture may provide hogs with a little less price pressure as

consumers look for value in their meat purchases. Exports have been the bright spot in hog rally. Therefore it does not seem possible that any sustained rallies will be found over the next few months. Producers should use any strength over the next several weeks to protect their summer and fall inventories.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

With only 28 percent of corn acres planted prior to May 9 in Minnesota, growers face the difficult decision of when to begin planting soybeans in order to maintain adequate yields. Soil conditions are of primary importance when considering delayed planting. Soil conditions and soil temperature Soil conditions at and after planting usually make a difference in how successfully the crop is established. Soil compaction and smearing is a concern when pulling implements and the planter through, or driving on, wet soil. To limit soil compaction, keep axle loads under 10 tons and properly maintain air pressure in the tires. Not only does this help the soil, but it will help your tractor run more efficiently and with less slippage. On wet soils, use the lightest tractor that can get the job done. Soybeans have delicate seed, so it benefits when planted about 1 1/2 inches deep, modestly firmed into the seed furrow, covered by relatively loose soil, and into soils with temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees. As of May 9, soil temperatures at the 2-inch depth averaged 61 and 56 degrees, respectively, at University of Minnesota Research and Outreach centers in Lamberton and Waseca. The lack of oxygen in saturated soils and the formation of a soil crust of even modest strength can almost eliminate soybean emergence. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the five-day forecast prior to planting. Planting in cool and wet conditions may lead to poor germination and seedling diseases such as pythium. These problems are magnified by extended cold and rainy periods after planting. University of Minnesota Extension research indicates that, under ideal conditions, soybeans in southern Minnesota should be planted at about 140,000 live seeds per acre. Soybeans grown in central and northwestern Minnesota require harvest stands of approximately 125,000 to 150,000 plants per acre to maximize yields. This is likely due to shorter-statured soybeans with fewer total nodes that are often produced in these regions. Increased seeding rates are required in central and northwestern Minnesota. Planting date and soybean yield Since early May plantings usually result in maximum yields, lower yields should be expected for later plantings. Planting soybeans in Minnesota on May 10 results in only a 2-percent yield loss; on May 15 in a 3-percent yield loss, and on May 20 in a 6-percent yield loss (or 94 percent of normal yield).

they did. Goldman Sachs told clients to liquidate commodities two to three weeks ago, Morgan Stanley said the same the following week and the giant French bank, Société Général indicated they thought the upward trend may be coming to an end as well. This raises the questions: “Who’s big enough to absorb the selling pressure from their liquidation? Who will be big enough to absorb the selling, if prices decline enough to prompt the ‘Big Money’ into a more proactive selling role?” As we look back in time, we are reminded of the Dutch Tulip Mania that peaked in February 1637. The prices for the newly introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high prices and then collapsed. It has been said that the price of the most desired tulip bulbs sold for 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman. This is generally considered to be the first recorded
