dards. Fine, don’t pay; but how do you square that action with calls for more free trade by nearly every House member every day? You can’t, so the antiWTO vote is nothing but political hypocrisy by political hypocrites. And then there’s ethanol. On June 14, the Senate, on a 40-59 vote, defeated an effort by Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn to kill two of ethanol’s three government subsidies, the 45-cents-per-gallon blending credit and the 51-cents-per-gallon import tariff. Two days later, however, the Senate overwhelmingly approved nearly identical legislation by a heavily bipartisan 73-27 vote, only this time it was introduced by a Dem, Dianne Feinstein of California.

Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world Within two weeks at three different speaking events various women asked me, “Have you read the book, ‘Heaven is for Real’?” A friend of a friend had passed the book on to me to read, but because I was preparing for the speaking events, I didn’t take time to crack its covers. On a Sunday afternoon after things had simmered down a bit, the book became my priority. After reading it, I wish I had made the time for this special book sooner. “Heaven is for Real” is a true story by Todd Burpo about his son Colton,

who was 3 years and 10 months at time of surgery when he experienced heaven. The book’s subtitle tells it all: “A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.” His story is exactly what the subtitle promises it to be — astounding. Of all the amazing parts of Colton’s mustread story, the part that revisits my mind most often is how Colton would tell his parents, “Jesus told me to tell you, He really loves the children.” He would remind his mom and dad morning, noon and night of this message.

By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent When we cook, we transform the gifts of the earth into nourishment for our bodies. The title of the new cookbook by First Presbyterian Church of Hinckley, Minn., “Gifts Great and Small,” reminds us that although we are surrounded by “great” gifts — peace in our land, relative prosperity, sunshine, chocolate, gravity — we should delight in smaller everyday gifts as well. Homemade brownies, garden peas and those first ears of summer sweet corn are all mouthwatering testaments to the wonders of our world. For those on restricted diets, the book contains many recipes that are low in fat, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free. Whether you’re looking for a few new entrée ideas or a special beverage for those hot summer days, your search will be rewarded in “Gifts Great and Small.” So let’s cook then! Here are some recipes celebrating the bounty of our American farmers (and their international partners). Let us give thanks for the fertile soil, the bountiful food, the energy to cook it and the family that eats it. ■ Two “hot” flavors in the culinary world right now — chipotle peppers and butternut squash — combine their robust flavors in this substantial entrée-style soup. Tender vegetables swim in a savory stew that’s a good choice on warm days: Spicy food actually helps cool you down once the initial burn has faded.

Add 1 1/2 cups broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until vegetables are tender; cool slightly. Transfer mixture to a blender; add the tomatoes, cream cheese, basil, chipotle pepper and remaining broth. Cover and process for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth. Return to the saucepan; stir in the beans, corn and spinach. Cook and stir until spinach is wilted and soup is heated through. If garnish is desired, sprinkle butternut squash seeds with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Place on a baking sheet.

‘Energy beets’ may offer ethanol alternative to corn By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Could sugar beets become a major player in the production of renewable fuels, specifically ethanol? That intriguing prospect was pre- Maynard Helgaas sented by Maynard Helgaas, partner in a West Fargo, N.D., firm called Green Vision Group. According to Helgaas, Green Vision’s ambition is to be the catalyst in building 12 processing facilities using “energy beets” grown in the irrigated agricultural areas around Jamestown, N.D. Some specifics: • Each plant to be designed with a 20 million gallon ethanol production capacity.

• This would require 30,000 acres of sugar beets per plant. • Anticipated production is 26.4 gallons of ethanol per ton of sugar beets. • On a comparative basis, sugar beets can produce about twice as much ethanol per acre as corn. • The ash byproduct would provide fuel to power the plant or be marketed as a field fertilizer. • Each plant has a projected cost of $53 million and would employee 23 workers. A unique construction strategy is that the components of each plant would be pre-manufactured, then shipped to the designated locations of these 12 proposed processing facilities, and assembled into the finished product. “Based on this concept we think each

plant could be operational about six weeks after delivery of component parts,” Helgaas said. A major partner, especially in the design of the processing equipment, is Heartland Renewable Energy, a Muscatine, Iowa, firm with considerable engineering and technical expertise. “I worked at a corn ethanol plant for 28 years. I realized early in the game that corn was not the perfect way to make ethanol,” said Rick Whittaker, president of Heartland Renewable Energy. “We learned that the best bang for your buck was with beets.” Helgaas said his firm began a serious study of the project in 2007. Both Heartland Energy and North Dakota State University experts in chemistry, agronomy and engineering continue to explore all aspects of this potentially huge new endeavor. The firm also has major support of Syngenta and Betaseed, both major players in the European seed industry and each with a history of genetic research on sugar beets. According to Helgaas, this “energy beet” is similar to the current sugar beet but slightly larger and it could carry a few more “impurities.” Purity of beets grown for the sugar market is critical because of the delicate slicing that starts the sugar-making process

and the resulting food-grade product. Potentially there might be several cultivars of the energy beet with greater yield and higher sugar content. “Our NDSU biofuels technology consultants have had field trials growing the beets, plus they’ve run sugar content and essay tests on the pulp material and the extracted juices. We’ll know a lot about this crop before we start signing up growers,” Helgaas said. Sugar beets for renewable fuels is already commonplace in much of the beet growing areas of Germany and France so the Green Vision Group is not dealing in new chemistry or new technologies. “It would seem we could just adopt their techniques in our own work, but USDA and other licensing agencies don’t take kindly to that logic. They insist the agronomic and mechanical processing of the beets has to first be certified here in the United States,” Helgaas said. Therein lies the rub. The Green Vision Group intends to first build a small-scale demonstration plant to verify the various mechanics and chemistries of their project. This twomillion-gallon “demo plant” will cost about $7 million. “Venture capital See BEETS, pg. 7A

Helgaas: ‘Wanna-be’ beet farmers may drive project This “new crop” may not even be in conflict with existing corn producers. Tom Lilja, executive director of the North Dakota Corn Growers Association, said the state’s corn growers “hope anybody that can make a profit in agriculture finds a way to do so. We certainly hope they can make it work.” Admittedly both time and money are slowing the project right now. Experience with the proposed two-million-gallon demo plant may be needed to “get all the ducks lined up.” “But we know interest is building,” Helgaas said. “And if our Congress gets real serious about reducing our dependency on imported oils, we think energy beets could rapidly become a major player in our renewable fuels industry.” For more information, call (701) 320-3667, e-mail maynardhelgaas@hotmail.com or log on to www.beetsallbiofuel.com.

and helps maintain a cleaner environment. • Beet harvest conveniently fits in after harvest of soybeans and before corn harvest. • About a 10-day harvest schedule is projected to handle the 30,000 acres grown for each plant. According to Helgaas, about 50 percent of the designated growing area for these 12 plants is irrigated land so drought doesn’t necessarily figure as a major impediment to growing the crop. “Based on comparative yields and today’s commodity prices,” he said, “the model suggests energy beets for ethanol could produce about twice the net income per acre of any other crop.” Perhaps a bit of a driving force in favor of this new industrial crop is that North Dakota has lots of “wanna-be” sugar beet growers. But the Red River Valley sugar beet industry is strictly limited to an acreage allocation program with each grower growing only the beet acres he has under contract. Because growing beets for ethanol would have no such acreage allocation, Helgaas and his group think a considerable number of North Dakota farmers might strongly consider becoming energy beet farmers. Using beets instead of corn also sidesteps the controversy associated with using a food product for fuel. The company hopes to produce 240 million gallons of ethanol. North Dakota has a current capacity to produce about 350 million gallons of corn ethanol.

BEETS, from pg. 6A today is hard to find. And USDA grants are even more difficult. The questionable world economy definitely has become a bit of challenge,” Helgaas said. Even Fagan Construction, the Granite Falls, Minn., firm that rapidly became the construction leader of ethanol plants across America is hesitant to get onboard with front-end money on this project. Helgaas has hopes the state of North Dakota, suddenly “rich” because of its ballooning oil industry, might step up to the plate with some start-up economic development dollars. He ventures, too, that both Syngenta and Betaseed might become sustaining members. He also indicated that a German research firm is close to developing the chemistry that would permit long-term storage of both the unprocessed sugar beets and the molasses extracted via a screw-press design. Long-term storage of the harvested beets and the sugar juice would be vital to keep the processing plant operational year-round. “We anticipate about a one-month shut down for maintenance and cleanup work for each plant. Besides the energy beet, we’re also looking at sugar cane as a potential feedstock plus, of course, the extracted molasses.” According to preliminary feasibility work, the processing of sugar beets for ethanol requires only about 1 1/2 gallons of water per 1 gallon of ethanol. Corn processing takes upwards of six to seven gallons of water per gallon of ethanol. NDSU agronomists are suggesting a four-year rotation for potential growers with corn, soybeans and wheat in the mix. Other potential pluses for adding sugar beets into the crop mix: • Because of its deep root (up to 8 feet), beets act as a mop in utilizing deep soil nutrients. • Beets are more tolerant to alkaline soils. • Roundup Ready beet seed reduces chemical costs

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

<< MILKER’S MESSAGE >>

Submitted

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer With the engineering attributes of a large wind turbine, several direct-drive small wind units are springing up on both farm and non-farm installations. Permanent magnet, variable resistant direct drive systems describes the Polaris turbine which is marketed by Renewable Energy SD, an Excelsior, Minn., firm. These Polaris units sold into the Minnesota market have a 50 kW capacity but are turned back to the 39.9 kW level to meet current Minnesota net metering laws. Net metering apparently varies from state to state. Iowa, for example, has a 50 kW net metering allowance; in Wisconsin the cap is 100 kW. New Jersey has no limit. Two Polaris turbines mounted on 160-foot towers were erected in April on the Warren and Rachel Krohn farm northwest of Nicollet, Minn. Said Dave Thorp, Renewable Energy sales technician, “because there is no gearbox, direct-drive technology considerably reduces yearly maintenance. It also extends functional life span. These units have only three grease points needing service once a year.” Each turbine has three 25-foot blades with hollow core component resins. The direct-drive system is manufactured in Ohio. The magnet generator is Italian-made and has tremendous reliability as a diesel generator in many commercial applications. They already have 50 of these direct-drive units “in the ground” in Minnesota, with another 60-plus in the planning and permit application process for 2011. Their primary turbine into the small-wind market is a 39.9 kW unit. This size qualifies for the Minnesota net metering program, which permits “surplus” electricity to be metered back to the local utility at the average “selling price” of electricity by that particular utility. This retail rate is about twice the wholesale rate at which wind farms sell. Rates are

going up about 5.4 percent annually in Minnesota, according to Thorp . Renewable Energy SD installs their turbines on a 160-foot steel lattice tower, which positions the hub at 164 feet. “That gets you up into that more stable wind area. The typical blade will be 189 feet, just below the 200-foot FAA ceiling limit.” Power and pricetags How much electricity do they produce? In productive wind areas, the Polaris 39.9 will deliver 160,000 to 190,000 kWs annually. Based on an average statewide consumption of approximately 7,900 kwh per home annually, a single unit powers 20 Minnesota homes. Turnkey cost for this Polaris 39.9 kW system is $268,000, which includes the 39.9 kW turbine/generator, 160-foot tower, permits, internal connections, etc. Federal grant money covers 30 percent of the project cost. State monies are also available for smaller wind turbines of 35 kW or less, with a maximum award value of $10,000 for residential connections and $25,000 for commercial. The turbine needs to be rated under 35 kW for this fund. Thorp clients have obtained over $200,000 of these funds used on the 34 kW Enertech turbine. Small wind systems also qualify for rapid depreciation schedules, 85 percent over the first five years of operation. “Obviously the government is paying a large portion of that investment cost to help develop small-wind energy,” Thorp said. Nicollet-area pork producer Warren Krohn shared information with The Land on two Polaris systems just installed on their home farm this spring. “We’ve got Serial No. 1 and Serial No. 3 so we obviously have the very newest units of this design,” Krohn said. He, wife, Rachel, and sons Brent, 26, and Bryce, 20, plus their business partner at their sow farm, raise about 40,000 pigs per year. Wind is now a See WIND, pg. 9A


Wind turbines to power energy-sucking hog facilities help the tax issues of Minnesota,” Krohn said. If a small wind tower generates $10,000 revenue per year, it is in fact also generating about $800 tax revenue at the 8 percent tax rate. And that’s a deposit into the state revenue coffers every year, year after year.

What tax revenue to Minnesota from the big towers? If the ownership is all out of state, you know the answer. For more information, write to Renewable Energy SD, 810 Excelsior Blvd., Excelsior MN 55331, log on to www.renewableenergysd.com or call call (952) 474-4908.

seven years these units should be paid for,” Krohn said. How long will the “up front” frosting be available? Krohn can only speculate. “The more people learn about these incentives, the more traffic there will be and if the pot stays the same size, it means fewer dollars for late arrivals. That was a reason we pushed now because that grant money seems more a certainty today that it will be two years from now.” Big and small How did the Krohns zero in on the Polaris brand? “We found that others are still gear-box driven. And based on research we did, plus conversations with other wind users, the payback just wasn’t there with these older styles. Lots more maintenance plus when you go from a gear-driven to a direct-drive system there’s a 25 to 30 percent savings in energy expended. Which is the same as saying it takes considerably less wind to generate the same amount of electricity. “Our generator spins at the same speed as the blades, which is between 50 and 67 rpm. But in gear-driven units, that gear box cranks up the generator to 1,800 rpm on an equivalent wind basis. That’s why you’ve got maintenance issues, plus you lose ‘horse power’ in the process. Our units kick in at 6 mph. At 23 mph, it’s generating at that 39.9 kW capacity. At 56 mph winds, the system automatically locks up and stops.” Could an influx of small wind generators impact the cost of electricity? That concern sparked some legislative discussion about net metering, i.e., whether it should even exist. But facts get distorted, and educating people about the “whole story” to show the many benefits of new business in rural Minnesota is important. For example, most of the “big wind” turbines sprouting across Iowa and southern and western Minnesota are 2.2 mgw or larger. “One big 2 mgw generator is the same as 50 of these 39.9 kW units. And there’s only 60 or so of these small wind turbines in the state right now, and even if there’s going to be another 100 of these little ones, that’s like only two more of the big tower units. Today these outfits put up 75 towers in just one area so one shouldn’t worry about small wind driving up the cost of electricity. “Plus you don’t need to rebuild the grid to handle small wind. The money these little units like we have, all stays in Minnesota. ‘Big Wind’ often has outof-state owners which certainly doesn’t

WIND, from pg. 8A major energy provider for this farming operation. They have six units at three locations, all within a mile of each other. The first two towers are 3-phase, the rest are single-phase. Early adopters Looking toward the future, the Krohns realized wind energy was rapidly becoming a growing force because of Minnesota’s net metering law which allows Minnesota residents to put “small wind” electricity back online and get paid at the same rate as what their local utility charges. Also there is a federal government mandate that 25 percent of the state’s energy (wind, solar, etc.) be renewable by 2025. According to Krohn, their local energy provider is already 20 percent wind generated, strongly driven by “Uncle Sam” paying 30 percent of the development costs. “So our thinking is that it’s a good deal if you get into wind energy now,” Krohn said, “because if you wait, those state and federal dollars might not be there.” There’s another 25 percent REAP federal grant package available, and sweetening the pot is that 85 percent depreciation opportunity. “You can take all of that the first year if you want, just like you can with a new combine or tractor.” The arithmetic is intriguing. Starting with that $268,000 initial cost, that first 30 percent grant money reduction drops the cost to $187,600. Subtract that 25 percent federal REAP money puts the project at $140,700. And if that 85 percent depreciation write-down is applied the first year, net investment cost of a Polaris 39.9 kW system is $21,105. The several confinement hog barns in the Krohn operation are high energy consumers, especially during the summer with dozens of exhaust fans in operation. “We use about $1,000 of electricity per month during that summer schedule but that drops considerably into fall and winter. We should be doing some net metering back to our local utility from December to May,” Krohn said. With electrical rates of about 8 to 8.5 cents/kw, rapid depreciation options, and 30 percent “up front” grant money, when does the Krohn spreadsheet show a positive cash flow for this investment? “It sort of depends upon which grants you get, and which you don’t. It looks like everyone will get the 30 percent grant. If we get both the 30 percent and the 25 percent, in six or

Grain Outlook Fund tsunami rolls corn

Livestock Angles June positive for livestock

Grain Angles It’s all about weather

The following market analysis is for the week ending June 24. CORN — A tsunami wave of fund selling this week rolled over the corn market, joined by a stronger U.S. dollar, sharply lower energy markets, the absence of a weather threat and mixed economic news pushed corn prices to their lowest level since March. The July and September contracts locked down the 30-cent limit mid-week on fund selling and when earlier forecasts that mentioned a possible high pressure ridge building in the Midwest were toned down. Warmer, drier weather is anticipated for PHYLLIS NYSTROM Country Hedging the next week, but a blocking St. Paul ridge or dome is not expected to develop. The exit of money from commodity markets in general was noticeable throughout the week. Persistent rumors circulated about Chinese interest in the United States, but nothing concrete surfaced during the week. Weekly ethanol production was up 2.4 percent as corn prices plunged. Weekly export sales were in-line with projections at 16 million bushels for old crop and 4.7 million bushels for new crop. U.S. corn is competitive into southern China. There were rumors circling the trade this week that China had bought U.S. corn, although there was never any confirmation. South Korea did buy one cargo of U.S. corn and passed on another. Crop conditions should hold steady this week as

June is proving to be a positive month for livestock prices. Both cattle and hog prices have improved since the start of the month on the increase in domestic demand, as the weather improved. The cattle market has experienced a sharp rally coming on the heels of short covering in the futures market and aggressive buying by the packers. The large discount the futures were carrying created hedges to be lifted as the basis was at an unusual discount to the current cash trade. This blossomed into the packers paying higher prices for live inventory since their profit marJOE TEALE gin was extremely positive. Broker These events created the sharp Great Plains Commodity Afton rally in both cash and futures over the past few weeks. On June 17, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The results are: cattle on feed as of June 1, 104 percent; placed during May, 89 percent; marketed in May, 107 percent. This report was seen as bullish by the trade as the lower placement number and the higher marketing figure were a positive. This will likely keep the market on the recent rally into the following week. As we pass the Fourth of July holiday buying, demand will once again become a question mark with the faltering economy. Therefore, producers should continue to monitor the market and consider protecting inventories as the market heads into the $114 area. The hog market has been creeping higher, unlike

Summer has finally arrived to the Upper Midwest. Heat units and rain are kicking the row crops into gear. As the young crops set roots, the ear size will soon be established for corn. Without much stress on the crop, the potential for large ears becomes a real possibility. As the pollination window has been pushed back due to later planting, the weather in the latter part of July will become more critical. It is all about weather for the next 60 days. Commodity markets have experienced some significant retracements. Crude oil has lost $21 since its high on May 2. Corn lost TOM NEHER $1 in six trading days after AgStar VP Agribusiness & Grain Specialist nearly topping the $8 mark. Rochester Wheat has lost over $1.50 since late May. Soybeans have languished in a sideways trading range, with most traders focusing on the corn market. The Dow Jones Industrial Index has lost more than 500 points as traders fear a double dip recession. Have we been seeing the beginning of a bear market or is this just a correction? Have the fundamentals of supply and demand changed? I am of the opinion that they have not changed. We are still looking at a tight stocks-to-use ratio in corn. I do think that some of the market’s perceptions have changed. It has been said that the “reaction of markets to news is more important than the news itself.” It appears that some of the fear that was priced into the markets has diminished. It appears that the

Cash markets were steady/better with a pipeline that is extremely tight. July corn fell another 30 1/4 cents this week to settle at $6.70 and the December corn lost 28 cents at $6.32 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans extended last week’s losses on improving crop conditions, money exiting and following corn’s lead. Weaker energy markets and a stronger U.S. dollar also contributed to the weak price action. However, there was a small resurfacing of demand for new crop bushels. China bought 120,000 metric tons of new crop, in addition to rolling some old crop purchases to new crop shipment. Weekly export sales for this year were a net negative 1.2 million bushels, dropping total sales commitments for the year down to 7 percent ahead of last year. New crop sales this week were 8.7 million bushels. In May, we crushed 128

MARKETING

Be careful, protect inventories on rally TEALE, from pg. 10A the rapid rally experienced by the cattle. In recent weeks there has been fair demand for pork product, which has warranted packers aggressively accumulating product. The available numbers of hogs has been fairly consistent and, with the renewed interest for product and the strength in the cattle market, hogs began to follow higher. A problem has begun to arise, though. As the pork cutout rose, the demand for product has once again slowed. This is, of course, a concern as to whether the recent rally can be sustained as we come into more

available inventories of live animals. Seasonal patterns would also suggest that we have more than likely put in the late-spring high, so an extended rally would more than likely not be in the picture in the weeks ahead. From an economic standpoint, demand for pork product will also be in question as discretionary income is shrinking from inflation and high taxes, causing less money to be available for more expensive cuts of meat. This would suggest that producers be extremely careful and protect inventories on the current rally.

Time to enjoy friends and family NEHER, from pg. 10A old trading adage “buy the rumor, sell the fact” may be at work. I do not believe that the volatility has left the markets and that there will be plenty of reaction.

In their efforts to manage margins, they try to keep their input costs closely tied to the price of ethanol.

There will be plenty of volatility in the basis as well as the futures prices. The current hot spots for basis bids are around the ethanol plants. Ethanol plants typically have less storage and must rely on a steady flow of grain from the country. The fact that it is difficult to fix ethanol prices for more than 30 days, keeps more of their buying in the nearby markets.

This creates some opportunity to capture some strong basis moves that may only be available for a short time. As we make our final old crop sales one could capture a Grain Angle by checking around for bids in the market, more often than not.

Without threatening forecasts, new crop soybeans could test the May low of $12.87 1/4 in the November contract. For the week, July beans were down 12 3/4 cents at $13.20 1/4 and November beans were 24 cents lower at $13.09 1/4 per bushel.

NYSTROM, from pg. 10A the benefits from sun in some areas are offset by heavy rains in others. Informa Economics is estimating that only 8 percent of the U.S. corn crop will be silking by July 3 versus 12 percent on average. The Greek government survived a vote of confidence last week, paving the way to receive their full July bailout payment from the European Union and International Monetary Fund. The lenders still want to see further austerity measures before fully committing to the next payment. The weakness of the euro has been supplying strength to the U.S. dollar. The Federal Open Market Committee met this week (a part of the Federal Reserve). In their released statements and press conference, they said the economic recovery is occurring at a slower pace than expected, interest rates will stay low for an extended period of time, no QE3 is currently planned and growth targets were revised slightly lower. OUTLOOK: July corn options expired as we brought the week to a close, pushing corn even lower. Since June 10 when July corn hit the record high of $7.99 3/4 to this week’s low of $6.39, July corn lost 20 percent of its value or $1.60 3/4 per bushel.

Drive-through hangar provides for efficient reload PLANE, from pg. 13A much more than with a piston-powered plane. I’ve flown Air Tractors now for about 20 years. I think they make the best spray plane in the market. Plus they haul more; they get you to your target fields quicker. We all remember those earlier days with smaller planes when we’d use the nearest road for reloading; only 65 to 80 gallon tanks, too.” Another advantage of the turbine is less frequent downtime and no set schedule for “majors.” “About every 1,200 hours we break the engine down and look at the components,” he said. “That’s called a ‘hot

My guys do the refill in three minutes or less. I taxi out the east door and am airborne again in about five minutes. That was the reason for bi-folds on both ends.

profession, Sigurdson admits to crashlanding twice due to engine failure. Fortunately he received no bodily damage from either incident. His take on the 2011 crop season? “Tremendously sporadic so far but that too should level out,” Sigurdson said. “When things get in late some farmers get reluctant to do the crop work because they reason there’ll be a lesser crop so they think ‘spend less money.’ I read that just the opposite. If you think you’ll have a shorter crop then do whatever is needed to maximize that crop.” The Minnesota Agricultural Aircraft Association is the “governing board” for aerial applicators. A board of directors is elected at each state convention. Some considerations of the MAAA: • An aerial applicator must meet federal and state requirements both for flying skills and for the safe handling

of chemicals. • Aerial applicators must have a commercial pilot license as well as a letter of competency to work as an agricultural pilot. • Overseen by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the state has some of the strongest laws in the nation governing agricultural aviation. • A licensed applicator must attend 12 hours of continuing education classes each year to stay current on new products, application usage of these products plus any new rules and regulations. • Aerial applicators are required by law to keep detailed records of every application and make those records available to MDA inspectors as well as veterinarians and health professionals throughout the state.

Soda jerks

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

The MinneSODA Fountain, downtown Park Rapids, Minn.

f you have just one malt this summer IAvenue at The MinneSODA Fountain on Main in downtown Park Rapids, you will remember it through the following fall, the long dark winter, spring’s hopefulness, until finally, you can once again make a summer pilgrimage to this 90year-old icon of sweetened dairy products. So, it’s just a malt, the uninitiated skeptic may say. I say you can have a malt in any one of hundreds of Minnesota cafes with back-to-the-’50s decor and it just isn’t the same. A malt is not a malt because the waitress wears bobby socks, there are James Dean photos on the wall, and Coca-Cola are in even the rest rooms. That’s decor. Don’t get me wrong. Since The MinneSODA Fountain was actually around in the ’50s, there’s decor. But malts require more than decoration. It’s the malt powder. And something else. Whatever the magic is you will taste the difference in MinneSODA’s chocolate, cherry, vanilla, marshmallow, blueberry, root beer, butterscotch and 11 other flavors of malts. And you’ll remember. Beth Belfiori and her staff at The MinneSODA call themselves soda jerks. Now I know what a soda jerk does because I’m old enough to have been served by a genuine 1950s soda jerk named Bunny Eifert. It was at Schenk’s Drug Store. I don’t know why Mr. Eifert was called a jerk, however. “It’s because you jerked the handle of the fountain back to get charged water in the phosphate drinks,” Belfiori said. The original fountain is visible, but idle, at MinneSODA so there’s no actual sodajerking going on. I suppose that’s decor. But staff does serve up real phosphates in cherry, strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, lime, lemon and green river. Bunny Eifert made something with all the flavors combined that he called The Suicide. Belfiori says she’s never made one but would be glad to try. MinneSODA serves other concoctions that regulars at Schenk’s Drug Store would remember. There are orange floats, brown cows (an ice cream soda with chocolate syrup and a touch of root beer), banana or hot fudge splits and banana slides. There is also a line-up of 10 different sundaes, including four named after candy bars. Since milk and sugar do not provide all the nutrients necessary to sustain life, MinneSODA serves 17 different sandwiches. I’d recommend the Chicago Style Hot Dog. Think of it as sort of a vitamin supplement.
