Farm Families of the Year to be honored at Farmfest More than 60 families from around Minnesota will be named a “2011 Farm Family of the Year.” The families will be officially recognized in a ceremony 1:30 p.m. Aug. 4 inside the Forum Tent at Farmfest. Families are chosen based on their contributions to the agricultural industry, their communities and the state. Families receiving honors have demonstrated a commitment to enhancing and supporting agriculture and agricultural production. On the following pages is a sampling of some of the families chosen as this year’s Farm Families of the Year. A full list, as well as other samples, of the honored farm families can be found in the “Farmfest Annual” in today’s issue, Pages 1F-32F. Cass County Walter and Lucille Sowers The Sowers farm was homesteaded by Walter’s great-grandparents in 1899, purchased by his father in 1934, and then purchased by Walter in 1962. Walter is currently retired from active farming. However, he has a few head of beef, rents his hay on shares and rents out his pasture for the summer. In the past 15 years, he has taken the least-productive land and planted 60+ acres to trees for wildlife. Clay County Sherwood and Marilynn Peterson

The Peterson farm has undergone many changes over the years. At one time the farm near Sabin had registered Hereford cattle. It also once had two fat cattle finishing feedlots, a certified potatoes crop, certified and registered wheat, barley, soybeans, edible beans and grain corn crops. At one time, it was also a potato wash plant and a seed potato brokerage business. Today the land produces sugar beets, wheat, barley, soybeans and grain corn. Sherwood gets help on the farm from his wife, Marilynn. The couple has three sons: Sherwood Jr., Charles and John who have also helped in the operation.

that was later turned to Promised Land Farm and Clayton’s Produce near Grand Rapids in 1959. After the purchase, his grandparents cleared the woods, built a barn and a home, and raised beef cattle. In 1980, Mike and Linnea Clayton purchased the farm and cattle from Mike’s grandparents. In 2007, they bought an additional 40 acres, which brought the farm’s total acreage to 143 acres. For pasture and field for the cattle, the Claytons also rent 75 acres. Today the Clayton farm consists of 35 head of Red Angus cross beef cattle and an extensive vegetable crop production by Mike and Linnea’s son, Ben. On 60 rented acres, Ben grows sweet corn, onions, tomatoes, beets, melons, Clearwater County peppers and cucumbers which are sold to the John and Pam Arneson public from the farm or at local farmer markets. The Arneson’s 530-acre farm near Shevlin consists Besides Ben, Mike and Linnea have a daughter and of the original family farm and a neighboring farm. a son-in-law; Kristen and Josh Garner and two John’s maternal grandparents moved to the original daughters Becky and April. farm from southern Minnesota in 1914 and began clearing the white and red pine stumps left from Lake of the Woods County the last major logging operation in northern George M. Sr. and Judith Swentik Minnesota. John’s parents then bought the farm in George and Judith Swentik of Baudette are 1947 and raised milking shorthorns, potatoes and producers of grass seed, small grains and hay. Later the farm gradually transitioned to a beef commercial hay. George also sets aside 40 acres of farm. Today it has 40 to 70 “natural” beef steer the farm located near the Baudette River for a calves, alfalfa and grain. The Arnesons are also variety of trees, including a fruit orchard to create a experimenting with alpacas/llamas and honey bees. habitat for wildlife. On the farm, George does a Daughter, Steffanie Bistrow, and her husband, majority of the work; however, Judith participates in Scott, and children Brady and Kassidy help on the the haying operation by raking hay and moving farm as needed. Son, Justin, and his wife, Maria, round bales. She also helps plant trees. and son, Jackson, also help when they can. Mahnomen County Itasca County Paul and Patricia Specht Promised Land Farm, Clayton’s Produce When Paul Specht took over the family farm near Mike Clayton’s grandparents purchased the land Mahnomen from his father it was mainly a dairy operation on about 160 acres. Soon after, Paul added Hereford beef cows and expanded the acreage by buying land adjacent to the existing farm increasing the total acreage to approximately 615 acres. Paul continued to milk until 1982. Today he raises Gelbvieh beef cattle while his son Fred grows corn and soybeans. Paul and Pat have four children: Fred, Deborah (Mike), Art (Stacy), and Sarah, and three grandchildren. Son-in-law Mike and son Art occasionally help on the farm.

is the fourth generation. The McIvers family had a nationally recognized Shorthorn herd that began in 1918 holding many production sales during the 1940s. The family became disappointed with the increase of milking Shorthorns into the beef breeds and began to artificially inseminate their Shorthorn cows to Saler bulls. They liked the results and built their Saler herd. In 1978, the McIvers purchased their first Hereford cow and a number of Canadian national champion bulls. As a result, the McIvers have had many champions in both breeds. The family has sold their cows around the world for embryo transfer donors. Also, many state fair champion cows have been bred at the farm. David and Maryln have four children: Scott, Tom, Heather and Holly. Scott is taking over the farm, Tom is a teacher-guidance counselor in Walker, Minn., and Heather and Holly are social workers in Minneapolis. Red Lake County Calvin and Susan Harmoning Calvin Harmoning of Red Lake Falls began buying a dairy herd and rented land when his father was farming. After marrying Susan, the couple purchased the home place and continued the dairy with Grade A milk. Calvin and Sarah rented more land and owned 460 acres. In 1993, they sold the dairy herd. In 1995, they rented out the land when Calvin went to work at an agricultural application business and worked there until he retired in 2010. Calvin continues to work part-time with the beef cattle that he owns with his son, Kurt. Besides, Kurt, Calvin and Susan have three other children and seven grandchildren.

Roseau County Kelman and Elizabeth Kvien Kelman, a former Roseau Farmers’ Union Company employee, and Elizabeth, a former physical education and health teacher, have worked together on their farm near Roseau for 31 years. In 1980 they decided to buy a cow-calf/small grains farm. That first fall they harvested 350 acres and recently in 2010, they harvested 4,100 acres. In 1996, they sold the cows and have only grown grain since. Today the Kvien farm also consists of Kelman and Elizabeth’s son, Peter, and his wife, Pine County Saumer Dairy Lori. They grow mostly wheat, soybeans and grass Steve and Laura Saumer of Pine City bought their for seed. Two things they have really changed on farm from Steve’s parents in 1990.

On the farm, Mike milks the cows and does the field work. Daughter, Hannah, feeds the cows and Stearns County calves and assists any other way that she can. Jeron and Brenda Nathe Laura helps where she is needed. Jeron and Brenda are the fifth generation on the Nathe farm located near Meire Grove, which was established in 1868.

Precision planting classroom a big deal on wheels By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Remember the “old days” when a cornfield classroom was a seed company rep and maybe a research technician standing around at a corn variety show plot? The topics would be how to select genetics, how to fertilize, how to control weeds and when to harvest. The product standing in front of you pretty much told the story. But in late-June in the parking lot at Max’s Grill in Olivia, Minn., the classroom took on different dimensions. Producers, on an invitation basis, stepped inside a spacious, neatly painted 60-foot semi trailer. Air conditioning, electronically controlled lighting and four rows of comfortable seats resembled the comfort of a modern GPS-equipped tractor. Slide-out sides generously expand the “theater” to accommodate up to 60 farmers per showing, which included a 26-foot-wide screen projecting a dazzling array of information — what happens if you plant too fast; if you have uneven seed drop; if seedto-soil contact is inconsistent; if you have variable seed depth. “This show-on-wheels is by Planter Technology Institute of Trimont, Ill.,” said Pioneer sales rep Chad Hoffbeck of Morgan, Minn. “I’ve been doing precision planting workshops at my farm dealership since 2000. With the high cost of crop production, we simply want to help farmers get the most out of their crops, regardless the cards dealt by Mother Nature. We started with seed metering but precision planting has now advanced to monitors, controlling down force, sensing seed drop, etc.” As both a farmer and seedman, Hoffbeck said general maintenance of planters on a yearly basis is good return for money spent. Planting too fast is still a culprit with some but he says farmers have dropped their planting speed dramatically over the past 10 years. “Farmers are doing much better with the entire planting operation as they better understand the value, the potential payoff if you do it right,” he said. “Quite a few guys have told me that buying a bigger planter and slowing down to 4, 4 1/2 mph has been a definite value.” Last year was the first year for this semi-trailer/tractor rig that moves this precision planting classroom around the nation. Hoffbeck was the first in Minnesota to utilize this half-million dollar unit last year. It has traveled to virtually every state where corn is grown,

Top: Planter Technology Institute’s 60-foot-long semi truck and trailer is literally a classroom on wheels. Above: The trailer is a spacious, climate-controlled classroom with four rows of seating capable of accommodating 60 viewers of its 26-foot-wide screen. with a two-man presentation crew explaining the good and the bad of what happens in your corn field depending upon your planting skills and, of course, the equipment you’re running. “It’s a three-hour presentation with a five-minute break midway,” he said. “Because of the continual action they don’t take questions until the presentation is wrapped up. However, with certainty I can say that this is a presentation that won’t be forgotten. Total comfort, a continual display of changing situations and a very articulate message by the two technicians traveling with the unit makes quite an impression.” The tag line on the 16-page color handout precisely explains the mission: “Tools for improving your depth control, your singulation, your seed environment and your yield.” As you might expect, several products are positioned, such as 20/20 SeedSense, a monitor that not only reports population, but skips and doubles so you can find, fix and move on. It not only shows you miles per hour but also row unit ride, so you can hit the sweet spot for speed. Seed metering gets special mention in this show. For every missed seed when planting, every skip, you subtract one plant from your harvest. Do that 5 percent of the time and you’ve just lost 5 percent of your yield. You should be getting 98 percent or better accuracy from your meters, but typical meters run at only 92 percent to 97 percent. When every percent is worth $5 per acre, seed metering takes on extra significance. For more information, e-mail info@precisionplanting.com or log on to www.precisionplanting.com.

Online auctions changing the game for Fahey Sales Another very real factor is our weak U.S. dollar. It simply buys more compared to other world currencies.” Overseas buyers want lots of information about what they are buying; Fahey Sales staff to the rescue. “Our catalogs literally contain photos of hundreds of pieces of equipment; even close-ups of special features of a given piece of equipment. So what you see in newsprint is just a small part of the total information package on a given piece of equipment. We use newsprint today to drive prospective buyers, both locally and worldwide, to our internet website. And

there they see multiple photos of a given piece of equipment, even the rear ends of tractors to show the hydraulic outlets, the hitch package, and such.” The obvious question when getting into overseas selling has to deal with credit. Is there even such a thing as credit in internet transactions? “At first we were skeptical,” Fahey admitted, “but after using it for a few years we’ve come to find out that the number of honorable people is pretty consistent regardless of if you are

Many pluses to online, but lack social atmosphere AUCTIONS, from pg. 11A dealing with them face-to-face or online. So the percentage of problems is similar wherever the transaction. “One positive about online auctions is that you still have the asset until that check arrives. With live farm auctions, you may have a buyer’s check but both he and his purchase are gone before you can verify the accuracy of his check.” Part of the Fahey reputation is that they always guarantee settlement to their sellers so there are no disadvantages to the seller. The bonus is exposure to potentially hundreds more buyers. But online selling has presented some challenges to Fahey Sales. “We’ve reconfigured how to do business, and restructured our staffing levels also. Selling on the internet involves transferring of funds, plus managing that particular asset until payment is received. But even then shipping procedures need to be worked out with the asset managed all the way until it goes into that particular shipping container.” Buyers pay transportation.

We have now converted our real estate sales totally to online auctions. ... It’s simply better for buyers to bid in anonymity. Sellers like it, too, because there’s no opportunity for ‘personalities’ to influence a sale. — Jim Fahey All real estate sales online “We have now converted our real estate sales totally to online auctions,” Fahey said. “We just don’t do live real estate auctions anymore. It’s simply better for buyers to bid in anonymity. Sellers like it, too, because there’s no opportunity for ‘personalities’ to influence a sale.” Fahey puts it rather concisely when he said, “we’ve eliminated ‘Minnesota Nice’ because that works as a disadvantage to the buyer.” Anonymous bidding lets neighbors in confidence and without emotion bid against each other. Trend lines in the auction business? Fahey predicts his firm will be totally an online auction company before he retires. He said this is a bit of a sentimental journey for their 67-year-old

family company. “We have several award-winning chanters on our staff and to think the auctioneer’s chant is soon a thing of the past is a bit disheartening,” he said. Putting a farm auction together takes time and labor. Fahey said they have crews that go to a farm several days in advance of sale day to pull machinery out of sheds and groves, to wash up particular pieces of equipment, to get the various pieces lined up in a logical selling sequence on the farm yard, etc. Going totally online still involves the piece-by-piece inspection and cleaning of equipment. But it also involves hundreds of photographs of the equipment, close-up shots, VIN numbers, even percentage of rubber on tires, perhaps

maintenance history, plus wording that best describes each item being offered for sale; all this information for preparation of the online auction catalog. What’s next? Perhaps even live videos showing the particular equipment in action. Already they can record the sounds of a tractor engine running so a prospective buyer can hear the actual sound of the tractor. “So as we deal with younger consumers you have to present several photos of each item, describe in vivid word language the item, even crank it up so a potential buyer can hear how it sounds. Some of today’s consumers actually think it’s almost arrogant on our part when we tell them if they want to bid on any of this equipment, you have to be here at 1 p.m. cause that’s when our auction starts. They want to bid in virtual time from the cozy comfort of their own home, or farm office, drinking their own coffee.” The good news of online auctions is a larger, younger and much broader base of consumers. But he admits that See AUCTIONS, pg. 13A

Be smart about online cons The National Consumers League noted a growing trend involving older consumers who are targeted by con artists and fraudsters. Baby boomers and older consumers made up more than half of all complaints to the NCL’s Fraud Center in 2010. Elderly victims may not report crimes because they are concerned that relatives may think they no longer have the mental capacity to take care of their own financial affairs. When an elderly victim does report the crime, they often make poor witnesses. Con artists know the effects of age on memory, and they are counting on elderly victims not being able to supply enough detailed information to investigators. In addition, it may take the victim months before they realize they have been swindled. This extended timeframe makes it even more difficult to remember details from the events. Never give out personal information on the phone, through the mail or over the internet unless you know with whom you are dealing. Avoid disclosing personal financial information when using public wireless connections. Never click on links sent in unsolicited e-mails; instead, type in a web address you know. Use firewalls, anti-spyware and antivirus software to protect your home computer; keep them up-to-date. Don’t

use an obvious password such as your birth date, your mother’s maiden name or the last four digits of your Social Security number for online accounts. Keep your personal information in a secure place at home, especially if you employ outside help or are having work done in your house. And remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Family members who want to protect loved ones from identity theft are encouraged to regularly monitor your loved ones’ financial accounts and billing statements, paying special attention to unexpected account statements.

AUCTIONS, from pg. 12A going through this “decade of transition” is a challenge for older buyers. Fahey Sales helps this audience with special staffers actually connecting by telephone to some of these buyers during the course of an online auction. The firm now even hires a third-party catalog service that provides interpreters to handle bidders using languages other than English. This “proxy bidding” services 1,400 other auction companies so there is an increase in exposure for each particular auction. Because of this “pooling action” the cost of advertising an auction keeps going down. “Once you run across these buyers electronically you are able to keep them in your database and communicate with them specifically as to their particular interest,” Fahey said. Does farm equipment sell better at the farm, or when it’s combined with other farmers’ equipment as part of a bigger consignment sale? Selling at the farm does better, Fahey said, particularly if it’s a farmer with a solid reputation for good farming and taking good care of his equipment. And again that’s the beauty of online auctions. You can “be at the farm” selling even just a few pieces of equipment. “This new trend isn’t so good for the lunch wagons that generally do quite well at a public auction.” He said that online auctions also take away the social atmosphere that is always part of a public auction. “In some cases a live auction is an extension of the grieving process for family members selling because of a death in the family. But unfortunately that is the world we live in today.” Flexibility Citing the flexibility that online auctions provide, he mentioned a consignment auction at New Prague, Minn., that had been scheduled for last Dec. 2. A major snow storm suddenly developed that would have made a live auction virtually impossible. The Fahey crew converted the entire thing to an online auction, making that decision about six hours before the storm hit. “You blast out the e-mails, you post it on Facebook, you Twitter out the change. Only about six people showed up for the auction but going online made it an extremely successful auction.” Farm auctions used to be cyclical and seasonal. But again thanks to online and a nationwide and worldwide audience, there’s always someone in a position to bid and buy. Dollar volume of an auction, land and equipment, is big money these days. Fahey said they have had farm auctions in excess of 3,000 individual pieces being sold. Packaging both land and equipment together, he said their largest sale to date would be in the $5 million range. His take on the future centers on the brutal fact that many families, both farm and non-farm, are not doing very well financially these days. “We’re living in two different worlds. Our agricultural community gets more and more productive but there are less and less of them. And I’m seeing how difficult it is for our younger people wanting to get into agriculture but financially can’t make it work. That bothers me and I don’t know the answer.” Today Fahey Sales is having fun, but that wasn’t the case during that 2005-08 timeframe when America’s total economy started backsliding, wiping out lots of farmers and businessmen in the process. “In

Legacies of Faith: The Catholic Churches of Stearns County By TIM KING The Land Correspondent If you drive on Interstate 94 through Stearns County, Minn., you may have noticed the towering red brick church on the north side of the highway in the town of Albany. That’s the Catholic Church of the Seven Dolors. It has been a landmark for travelers since it was completed in 1900. John and Robert Roscoe, in their book “Legacies of Faith: The Catholic Churches of Stearns County” point out that the exterior of the Church of the Seven Dolors is of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. I have always failed at the recognition and

naming of architectural styles. But, I have been passing by The Church of Seven Dolors throughout my entire life and I always take note of its elegant beauty and the sense of permanence that it communicates to me. I suspect that it communicates to me, and thousands of others, the same message that the ancient churches and cathedrals of Europe communicate to people who regularly see them: There still is beauty in this world; there are some things that don’t change.

The Roscoe brothers, Robert an architect and John a life-long resident of Stearns County, were inspired by this very message on their first visit to the Church of Seven Dolors. The architecture we were seeing surpassed all but a few of churches recently visited in northern rural Italy — carefully proportioned features, sensitively rendered detail, and overall magnificence. “Legacies of Faith” tells the story of the Church of Seven Dolors and Doug Ohman’s photographs make the story sparkle. Ohman captures the beauty of the building with a great exterior shot of the church at sunset. Then he takes the reader inside to look at the altar, richly colored stained glass windows, the detail of the woodwork in the pews, and the grandeur of the high-ceilinged interior. Had Stearns County only one church like Albany’s, “Legacies of Faith” would not have been written and photographed. It has 55 of them, however. The towns and villages of Stearns County contain a stunning treasure trove of architectural detail and magnificence. And, unlike many churches in Europe, all of them are in an excellent state of repair. The Roscoes break their book into three sections. The first section, titled The Early Churches, includes 39 churches built between 1871 and 1930. These include three churches in St. Cloud but also in villages like Opole, Farming, Jacobs Prairie, and Luxemberg. “Legacies of Faith” tells the story of the church of St. Margaret, in Lake Henry, in a manner similar to others. The Roscoe brothers tell a brief story of the formation of the parish and its history. That was in the early 1850s for Lake Henry. They write about the decision and timing of the church construction as well as the architectural style. They include a narrative about the church’s architectural details and they

include a brief discussion of any modern renovations to the church. The stained glass windows in St. Margaret’s are a prominent feature of this church and Doug Ohman does a nice job of photographing them while the Roscoes explain how they fit into the architectural whole. The reader leaves the short chapter on St. Margaret’s feeling that they’ve just toured a place of unique beauty and that they understand a little more about the architecture that created that feeling. The second section of “Legacies of Faith” is focused on the Modern Churches, or those built between 1941 and 2000. There are 17 of these. St. Cloud again features a number of them but there are interesting and architecturally inspirational buildings in Cold Spring, Brooten, Belgrade, and in Collegeville at St. John’s Abbey. One of the most interesting is the tiny Assumption Chapel, or Grasshopper Chapel, built near Cold Spring in 1952. The Church of St. Boniface, in the town of Cold Spring, is also featured. The Roscoes have less to say about modern churches, and Ohman has less to show, than they do of the older churches. However, from personal experience, I can say that a visit to St. Boniface or to the Abbey church at Collegeville can communicate at least some of the overall magnificence and grandeur that the Roscoes felt when they first visited the Church of Seven Dolors. There is a third section to “Legacies of Faith.” For me, as someone who has seen many of these churches for a lifetime, the Introduction and the two short chapters on Settlement History and Architecture of the Churches help give the individual chapters on all the churches some context. These three chapters help explain why this magnificent collection of buildings is in Stearns County and not, for example, where I live. If you can’t afford, or don’t have time for, a trip to see Europe’s churches and cathedrals this summer get a copy of “Legacies of Faith.” Read it, then get in the car with your family and take a road trip to see Stearns County’s legacies of faith. The book was published by North Star Press in 2009 and should be available from your local library or from bookstores.

THE LAND, JULY 29, 2011

Be sure to stop by the Forum Tent in the center of the Farmfest grounds to take in one of the many educational forums during the three-day show. This forum will focus on efforts across the United States to change the way U.S. presidential elections are conducted, by switching from the current Electoral College system to electing the president by a national popular vote. It should be an interesting discussion on a timely topic. The Minnesota Farm Bureau will host a free breakfast 8-10 a.m. Aug. 3 in the Forum Tent at Farmfest. Special guest will be Eric Kaler, new president of the U of M. Kaler will also give a keynote address at 10:15 a.m. on Aug. 3, just prior to the morning forum. Three special grain marketing forums will be held at 9 a.m. each day. The Aug. 2 marketing forum will feature Bryce Anderson, well-known DTN agricultural weather expert, and John Sanow, DTN grain marketing analyst. The Aug. 3 marketing forum, which will be part of the Farm Bureau breakfast, will feature Mark Schultz from Northstar Commodities.

Grain Outlook Corn trading on future weather

Livestock Angles Grain Angles Markets running Challenging times like the weather in grain markets

Editor’s Note: Tim Emslie, Country Hedging market analyst, is sitting in this week for Phyllis Nystrom, the regular “Grain Outlook” columnist. ■ The following market analysis is for the week ending July 22. CORN — The corn market lived up to its name as a futures market this week, trading the extended weather forecasts more closely than the current weather. The new-crop contract closed just a 1/2-cent higher even though the hottest weather in several years hit the Corn Belt. TIM EMSLIE Country Hedging December corn had rallied 48 St. Paul cents the previous week in anticipation of the heat, and the market spent the week of July 18 trying to determine when there would be some relief. Weekly condition ratings showed a three-point decline in the good-to-excellent category, the biggest drop since September 2008. Conditions ratings are expected to decline further, but there was some precipitation that gave some fortunate areas some defense against the heat. The seven-day precipitation map as of July 23 showed the best rains were along the northern and eastern edges of the Corn Belt, with the driest weather extending from the southwest into central Illinois and Indiana. Yield estimates are drifting below the July U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast of 158.7 bushels per acre, centering around the mid-150s right now. Export demand was quiet during the week with no

One thing about the livestock markets over the past year is that they are a lot like the weather. If you do not like what you have one day, wait and things will change quickly the next day. Volatility has become the norm with livestock prices and because of the high price values associated with livestock today, it will not cease anytime soon. A perfect example of this erratic and sharp price movements is the cattle market. One week the price of finished cattle are experiencing a sharp rally and the following week the are in a steep decline. The fundamenJOE TEALE tals of the market seem to be Broker ignored from time to time until Great Plains Commodity Afton the market has moved too far in one direction. At that point the realization that the prices are out of line and the quick correction occurs. The good news about these erratic moves is that it provides opportunities for producers and end-users alike to secure their product at beneficial prices. The recent rally in the cattle market was an example of the money being the driving force in the market instead of supply and demand. The fundamentals are not particularly positive at this time as the supply of cattle is far greater than the current demand for beef. However, the commodity funds were looking to establish a long position in the cattle futures, and the number of contracts involved overwhelmed the futures and pushed prices higher. Because packers work off the basis, this opened the door for them to increase their bids for live inventory

Driving the back roads of the northern Corn Belt these last two weeks has shown me a great deal of variation in crop development. Some of the crops look fantastic, while laterplanted crops struggle to catch up. The heat units have really kicked these crops into gear. After a week of very high temperatures, crops had to draw on the moisture profile, leaving some fields longing for another rain. Yet, other fields were trying to drain flood waters. As I have said in previous columns, it is all about weather this time of year. TOM NEHER We have a country of contrast AgStar VP Agribusiness this summer, with hope-crushing & Grain Specialist drought in the southern Plains Rochester and devastating flooding in the Missouri and Mississippi river valleys. This all leads to challenges that most of our urban neighbors would find unbearable. Yet, the farmer is always the bullish optimist out of necessity. If we lose hope for the next year, we would never be able to find the strength to put the seed in the ground next spring. Growing up and farming in western Kansas, we called it, “Next Year Country.” The news has been dominated with monetary talk from Europe and concern about global financial strength. China has been an active buyer of new crop corn and the U.S. Department of Agriculture is recounting planted acres in the northern Corn Belt. Both Washington and state governments are searching for answers to difficult budgetary matters, with little hope for a meaningful solution. These con-

Emslie: Key for soybeans will be August weather third major usage category — feed — this week. We’ve been hearing reports of wheat feeding in the southern plains as wheat harvest nears completion. Feedlots require assurance of consistent supply in order to make the switch, and are bidding for multi-month packages. The other major development regarding feed usage estimates was the Cattle on Feed report on July 22. Placements were 104 percent of the previous year; expectations were for 94 percent. Apparently the on-going drought in the Southwest pushed many more cattle than expected into feedlots. This is bearish for cattle prices in the short-term, but indicates feed demand will stay strong. OUTLOOK: It’s been said for many months that a nearly perfect growing season would be needed to build stocks in 2011, but the weather this week was far from perfect. December corn rallied $1.28 from the July 1 low to the July 19 high in response, and whether or not the heat returns in August will deter-

Meats influenced by D.C. decisions TEALE, from pg. 18A and hedge the finished product. The problem lately has been with the increase in the beef cutout, once again the volume in the boxed beef trade has slowed. Thus leaving the cattle market in a precarious position of being too high to sustain current levels. Demand will be the price determining factor in the months ahead, not supply. Producers should continue to take advantage of the sharp rallies to protect their inventories. The hog market has been volatile as well, but in a different way. After establishing a seasonal high this spring the market was on the decline due the increase in market-ready hogs and the declining seasonal demand for pork. Then along came the Chinese to purchase U.S. pork and the hog futures immediately experienced a sharp rally in response to the announcement. The only caveat to this announce-

ment was that the cash market had little if any response to this event and futures began to slide once again. As pork cutouts move higher one will have to wonder if the domestic demand will respond as it has in the beef and decline as the price moves higher. At a minimum it will be at least 30 days before we see any real effect of the Chinese buying on live prices if there is any effect at all. As with the cattle, hog prices will be determined by demand more so than by the supply. Producers should continue to use strength in the market to protect inventories. Both cattle and hog prices will be influenced by the economic decisions made in Washington in the weeks ahead. This will more than likely continue to keep both markets uneasy until some key decisions are made about the U.S. budget and the debt ceiling.

Not the first to go through tough times and influence, while other things were out of his control. He knew the importance of a strong work ethic and the value of timely application. He also knew that modesty and humility were more important than pride. Farming through the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, he learned the value of “saving some today, to play tomorrow.” He knew that building a strong balance sheet and working capital was the best form of selfinsurance available. It was out of this strength, that he was able to sleep at night; knowing that he had given it his very best. As we go forward in these volatile times, let us remember that we are not the first generation that has faced challenging circumstances. Think back to the generations that have come before us that homesteaded this land. They left all the security of the “known” and faced the “unknown” in an attempt to make a better life for themselves and their families. We come from a long line of strong genes, for facing times like we experience today. We must give thanks for this inheritance.

NEHER, from pg. 18A ditions make for a volatile market and leave most of us wondering what will happen next. It is during times of volatility that our management practices are tested and challenged. Our spirit and determination sets the stage for generations to come. I will always remember sitting around the supper table on hot, dry nights in July, wondering if that “million-dollar rain” would ever come in time to save the crops. I can still hear my Grandmother expressing her stress and anxiety, while Grandpa ate his supper. When she finally wore herself out, he would calmly say: “Mommy, I guess we will have to do like we used to. We will just take what we get.” This never made her feel any better, but she knew it was the truth. Grandpa was not fatalistic, rather he was a realist. He knew that there were things that he could control

mine the direction from here. Some farmer selling was noted when the December contract hit $7. The first resistance level will be the weekly high of $7.03 3/4. Retracement support on the chart will be provided at $6.55 and $6.40. SOYBEANS — Soybeans actually had a quiet trading week despite the intense focus on weather. The November contract was just 1 1/4 cents higher on the week, trading in a fairly narrow daily range. Conviction about yield gains or losses is difficult to develop ahead of the reproductive stage, which the fairly stable market is reflecting. Weekly condition ratings dropped two points in the good-to-excellent category, and a further drop is expected for the report as of July 24. Weekly export sales were fairly routine at 257,000 mt for old-crop and 189,000 mt for new crop. There was a daily sales announcement of 220,000 mt to China for 2011-12. It was reported that China wants to move another 4 million mt out of state reserves, while also removing the price caps on vegetable oil. The price caps and release of state reserves in an attempt to contain food inflation since November have resulted in the export slowdown. OUTLOOK: The November contract traded above $14 again during the week, but failed to close above that level. The highest close for November soybeans has been $13.99 3/4 back in February. While July weather is important, the key for soybeans will be August weather. The Corn Belt will get some relief from the heat during the last week of July, but if the heat rebuilds from the Southwest during August, the market will be quick to react. Resistance is at the weekly high of $14.09 1/2, and support is at $13.50. Longer-term uptrend line support is currently at about $13.10. If yield expectations fall closer to 40 bu./acre, a challenge of the 2011 high on the continuous chart near $14.55 would be expected.

The weekly totals for both old and new crop declined from the previous week coming in at 429,000 mt and 473,000 mt, respectively. Weekly ethanol production rose only 1,000 barrels per day to 873,000 barrels. Ethanol production has now been below 900,000 barrels per day for two consecutive weeks for the first time since mid-May. Ethanol margins appear to be positive, but if the recent slowdown in production is sustained nonetheless, the USDA’s estimate of 5,050 million bushels for ethanol usage will turn out to be overstated. Some have speculated that the heat is responsible for reduced ethanol production due to a combination of electricity restrictions and operational slowdowns because of the difficulty of drying and cooling the dried distillers grains in hot weather.

Jerry Dryer wrote in his July 15 Dairy & Food Market Analyst that “Sub-two-dollar cheese prices are not too likely too soon.” He reports that demand is “holding up much better than almost everyone had thought” and that “Mother Nature is now starting to take a bite out of the milk supply and the solids content of the milk.” One of his sources told him, “the block price will move through the previous high ($2.28) with ease as reality settles into the marketplace this summer. That reality: There will not be enough cheese to go around this fall.” ■ Cash butter closed a penny higher on bids, at $2.04, 24 cents above a year ago. Nothing was sold on the week. NASS butter averaged $2.0250, down a penny. The California Milk Producers Council newsletter said, “there’s increased interest in cream for manufacture of soft and frozen products, which gives some butter plants the option to sell cream rather than build butter inventories. Buyers are having to roll the dice. ... Buy now for the fall and be sure of a full supply or wait until prices come down.” It adds that the USDA’s Dairy Market News reports butter sales are “about normal for this time of year, a surprising observation considering the level of retail prices and the listless restaurant business.” May butter exports were slightly higher than the year before, but the MPC warned, “there are signs that the end of the global shortage of butterfat may be in sight.” Prices continued to weaken in the July 19 Global Dairy Trade (Fonterra) auction. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Daily Dairy Report shows the weighted average price for skim milk powder was $1.58/lb., down 20 percent from the June 1 event. Whole milk powder, at $1.58/lb., was down 11 percent, anhydrous milkfat was $2.09/lb., down 19 percent. Cheddar cheese for industrial use debuted on the auction and garnered an average winning bid of $2.10/lb. for September delivery and $1.86 for October. Speaking of the international market, Cooperatives Working Together accepted six requests this week for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America and Darigold to sell 1.6 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in North Africa, Asia and Central America.

MIELKE, from pg. 20A ■ Grade A nonfat dry milk headed the opposite direction closing Friday at $1.5250, down 8.5 cents on the week. Extra Grade remained at $1.61. NASS powder averaged $1.6510, down 1.4 cents, and dry whey averaged 55.21, up 1.1 cent. The MPC reports that “buyers of dry whey may be more interested in looking ahead than are manufacturers. Supplies are tight in the eastern part of the country and in balance elsewhere. Demand is steady from domestic users while exports in April and May were lower than the year before as well as the two preceding months. Production is being controlled by the rate of cheese manufacturing, which is being influenced by the amount of milk that is available, which is being affected by the weather.” Looking “Back to the futures,” the federal order Class III contract’s average for the last half of 2011 was $18.34 per hundredweight on June 10 and 17; $18.21 on June 24; $18.19 on July 1; $18.54 on July 8; and $19.29 on July 15. ■ Milk production continues to rise despite high feed prices, according to the USDA’s Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook. Climbing domestic commercial use and exports act to keep milk and dairy product prices high, the report said. Cow numbers were forecast to fall slightly in 2012, but production is expected to continue to climb. Higher milk production will likely lead to lower milk and product prices in 2012, according to the Outlook. The June Acreage report indicated that producers planted 92.3 million acres of corn, up 4.1 million acres from last year, and the second highest since 1944. The prospects for a larger crop in 2010-11, coupled with larger beginning stocks, resulted in lower expected corn prices compared with last month’s forecast. Corn prices were forecast at $5.50 to $6.50 a bushel. Soybean meal prices were lowered from last month’s forecast to $345 to $375 a ton. While corn and soybean prices in 2011-12 are likely to be lower than earlier season expectations, forage prices could remain near record highs. Nationally, alfalfa prices set a record high in May. The June Acreage report confirmed expectations that the harvested area of alfalfa hay and alfalfa mixtures had declined from 2010. The expected harvested area decline, along with severe drought in parts of Texas and the Southwest and excessive wetness in parts of the Northwest (which adversely impacted first cutting), will keep alfalfa hay prices high for the rest of 2011 and into 2012. “On balance, the change in feed ingredient prices will offer only scant relief for dairy producers,” the USDA said, “as the benchmark 16-percent protein ration will likely remain well above 2010 for both the balance of 2011 and 2012.” ■ May fluid milk sales totaled about 4.4 billion pounds, according to USDA data, down 1.9 percent from May 2010 after adjusting for calendar composi-

A woman in search of a tornado that tore her heart away You can’t tear yourself away from the TV. No, it’s not the season finale of your favorite show, or another shock-talk fluff piece you’re watching. This is something much more important. You’re watching reds and oranges swirl around a map of your area like a toddler’s finger paints. But this is not playtime: radar tells you what you need to know to stay safe from bad weather, and you can’t tear yourself away.

You know all too well that weather is nothing to mess with. But in the book “The Stormchasers” by Jenna Blum, a woman travels into storm country in search of a tornado that tore her heart away. Karena Jorge hated birthdays. It wasn’t that she was getting older. No, each successive birthday was just another reminder that Charles was missing. It had been decades since she last saw

His SEZ childhood bedroom was plastered with pictures of tornadoes, By Terri Schlichenmeyer some of which he had taken himself. He knew more about meteorology than most weathermen, but it wasn’t just a personality quirk. Charles suffered through periods of obsession and mania, and he’d spread the suffering to the whole family. Now, Charles and Karena weren’t just twins. Because their mother had died of lung cancer years ago, their father was near-incoherent from a stroke, and their stepmother was a Black Widow, Charles was the only family Karena had, and vice versa. So when she hit “The Stormchasers” by upon the idea to Jenna Blum write an article for her employer, a c.2010, 2011, Plume Minneapolis newsBooks paper, Karena $15/$17.50 Canada joined a tour group of stormchasers and 370 pages hoped it would lead straight to Charles. But somewhere between North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma’s panhandle, Karena met someone who knew Charles and who agreed to help find him, and she started to fall in love. But could learning to trust again alter a secret that she and Charles shared, or would everything be destroyed in a hail of confession? Looking to weather your summer with a little bit of reading? Although it sometimes felt just a tad too long, “The Stormchasers” is a pretty appropriate book. With an air of authenticity borne of deep research, Blum sends her main character (and readers) through the midst of devastation, which will make your heart pound. Bracketing that, the story moves back and forth in time to explain the relationships between Karena, Charles and their parents — a part of this novel which is richly detailed but sometimes too much so. Blum also includes the ubiquitous romantic thread here and, while it seemed contrived at first, it ended up to be just right. Overall, if you’re looking for a decent book for a rainy day, this one promises fair skies. Now out in paperback, “The Stormchasers” is a book to put on your radar. ■ Look for the reviewed book at a bookstore or a library near you. You may also find the book at online book retailers. ••• The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and never goes anywhere without a book.

missing in the link that causes precious babes to have X-rated body and verbal language by the time they are 12? Where are their parents and families on a Saturday night while these youth are roaming streets that need the presence of a police army to remain under control? I hope these thoughts and questions aren’t just being asked outside of the city limits. Must we accept this behavior as city reality or is there a feasible solution? The answer, I believe, is not primarily through government programs like some lawmakers would like us to think. No amount of increasing program staff or funds will cure or replace the missing link. And what is that missing link? In a single word — love. Kids need to know and experience the reality of unconditional love. How sad that there are children who grow up without a parent, grandparent or significant family member who ensures that they know they are loved. If only all children were loved with appropriate hugs and kisses. If only all children were loved with balanced diets, immunizations and daily personal care. If only all children were loved through wise direction and discipline. If only all children were loved through a listening ear and a plethora of encouraging words. Are these love deficiencies limited to downtown cities? I don’t think so. A more personal question: Are these love deficiencies taking place in your rural community, within the walls of your home? Only you can answer that. If your answer isn’t a positive one, make it your highest priority to turn the situation around and choose the greatest thing we can do for the next generation — love them. ••• Lenae Bulthuis is a wife, mom and friend who muses from her back porch on a Minnesota grain and livestock farm.

Delectable cupcake is actually SPAM in disguise Cookbook Corner By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent One of the most-used tools in my kitchen is the internet, and as online cooking resources have evolved, it behooves me to keep up with internet tools that are both practical and easy to navigate. “You’ve come a long way, baby” used to be a jingle for Virginia Slims cigarettes, but the same can be said about internet cooking sites. They’re getting better, and some are excellent. Lately I’ve been experimenting with ingredient searches, where you enter your main ingredient and let the search engine find likely recipes all over the internet. It makes searching across websites much faster, and the results are always interesting if not entirely accurate. I input the word “Minnesota” into a few of these web searches — and loved what they spit out. (I must say, about 90 percent of the “Minnesota” recipes included wild rice. What’s up with that? I love wild rice and am proud that it’s grown here, but 90 percent?) ■ Here’s what Cookzillas.com gave me, much to the joy of this SPAM lover. Imagine something that looks like a delectable cupcake but is actually SPAMloaf in disguise. Try not to drool. SPAM Cupcakes For cupcakes 2 (12-ounce) cans of SPAM 3 eggs, slightly beaten 2/3 cup quick-cooking oatmeal 3/4 cup milk For glaze 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon prepared mustard 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1 tablespoon water For topping 4 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes Fresh chives or parsley (optional) Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare cupcakes: Grate SPAM into a large bowl. Add eggs, oatmeal and milk; mix well. Lightly spray a regular-size muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each muffin tin two-thirds full with SPAM mixture. Prepare glaze: Combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Heat 2030 seconds in microwave until sugar is melted. Lightly spoon glaze mixture over SPAM. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until mixture is set. Meanwhile, for topping: Prepare 4 cups of instant mashed potatoes. Remove cupcakes from oven and top

The Johnson clan gives four out of four ‘yums’ to Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hot Dish each serving with instant potatoes. Heat broiler.Return muffin tin to oven. Broil 1-2 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned. If desired, garnish with fresh chives or parsley. Makes 12 servings. (Created by Estelle Schmidt, National “Best SPAM Recipe” Competition 2000 Grand Prize Winner. Adapted from About.com. Courtesy of Hormel Foods.) ■ Foodily.com (acting as Facebook’s “recipe box”) provided Minnesota Wild Rice Bread, a hearty loaf indeed with oats, rye, whole-wheat flour, bran and, of course, wild rice. You can make the wild rice and refrigerate it ahead of time. Minnesota Wild Rice Bread (makes 1 loaf) 1/4 cup wild rice, raw 2 cups water 1 package dry yeast 1/3 cup warm water 2 cups milk, scalded 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1/2 cup honey 2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup rolled oats, uncooked 1/2 cup rye flour 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour 1/2 cup bran 3 1/2 cups unbleached flour, plus 1 cup, as needed 1 egg, beaten 1 tablespoon water 1/4 cup hulled sunflower seeds Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add rice to boiling water and cover. Cook over very low heat until water is absorbed and rice is tender. Cool. Preheat oven to 375 F. Stir

yeast into 1/3 cup warm water and let stand 5 minutes. Stir together milk, butter, honey, salt and oats. Add cooled wild rice to milk mixture. Stir together rye flour, whole-wheat flour, bran and 3 1/2 cups of the unbleached flour, using a wooden spoon. Stir in milk and yeast mixture until soft dough forms. Add more of the unbleached flour as needed. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead until soft and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl and turn so that the top is greased. Let rise 2 hours. Punch dough and shape into two loaves. Place in two greased 9 1/2x5 1/2-inch pans. Let rise again, about 1 hour. Bake for 45 minutes. During last 15 minutes of baking, brush loaves with 1 beaten egg mixed with 1 tablespoon of water and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. (Recipe courtesy Rose Pedersen, Cafe and Ice Cream Parlor, Malmo, Minn.; adapted from FoodNetwork.com) ■ I have three children, one in her 20s and two teenage sons. The daughter is a vegan and eats no meat or dairy. One teen is an omnivorous grazer, who eats a little bit of everything all day long, with a definite tendency toward the sweet. The third child is a proud carnivore who thinks about eating meat all day long, beef in particular. In his honor I prepared Delish.com’s “Minnesota” suggestion, Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hot Dish, combining two of his favorite side dishes with his beloved beef. This recipe is lower in fat than many of its ilk (using low-fat milk and lean ground beef) and boasts plenty of fragrant sea-

soning (admittedly unusual in a Minnesota hot dish). You’re gonna love the turmeric and paprika, folks. Four out of four yums from the Johnson clan! Broccoli, Beef & Potato Hot Dish 1 1/2 pounds (about 6 cups) broccoli, cut into 1-inch florets 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided 1 1/2 pounds 95 percent-lean ground beef 1 large onion, chopped 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided 4 cups low-fat milk 1/3 cup cornstarch 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, preferably orange 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric 4 cups frozen hash-brown or precooked shredded potatoes 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper Canola or olive oil cooking spray 1/4 teaspoon Hungarian paprika, preferably hot Preheat oven to 450 F. Toss broccoli with 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast, stirring once halfway through, until just soft and browned in spots, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add beef and onion and cook, breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon, until the beef is browned and the onion is softened, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire, garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside. Whisk milk and cornstarch in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over mediumhigh heat, whisking often, until bubbling and thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, 6 to 8 minutes total. Remove from the heat and stir in Cheddar, 3/4 teaspoon salt and turmeric until the cheese is melted. Spread the beef mixture in a 9x13-inch (or similar 3-quart) baking dish. Top with the broccoli and pour the cheese sauce evenly over the top. Combine potatoes, egg, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the casserole. Coat the top with cooking spray. Bake the casserole until it is bubbling and the potatoes are beginning to brown, about 40 minutes. Sprinkle with paprika. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. ••• If your community group or church organization has printed a cookbook and would like to have it reviewed in the “Cookbook Corner,” send us a copy to “Cookbook Corner,” The Land, P.O.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

48 A

pproaching Spring Hill, Minn., from the west, on A Stearns County Road 14, you can see the steeple of the church of St. Michael two and a half miles away. For 111 years area farmers have looked up and seen that towering red brick steeple. It, like their fields, has been a permanent fixture of the landscape in the western part of the county for generations. Up close the steeple, as well the church, is a thing of beauty. It is a part of, and seems to grow out of, the vibrant village of Spring Hill. The doors of the church beckon visitors to walk a path that leads up the wooded hill from the commercial district to the church. The path unites the church with the community that it serves. John and Robert Roscoe, authors of “Legacies of Faith: The Catholic Churches of Stearns County,” describe the architecture of St. Michael as being a simple and elegant representation of GothicRomanesque church architecture. Those styles, whether you understand them or not, have the capacity to inspire a visitor and calm their spirit. On the outside, the church gives a sense of towering over everything within sight as well as having a sense of squatting solidity to it. It seems to want to fly but never move. The church’s exterior is in excellent repair and has numerous architectural details to intrigue those who are interested. Inside, the visitor experiences that same sense of something solid and immovable ready to fly. In the nave, or center of the church, slender white columns, with gold accents, cause the eye, and the spirit, to look upward to a beautiful arching gold and white vault. The human spirit does want to soar to the heights but it also seeks beauty in detail. This church has plenty of detail from the intricate craftsmanship on the pews to the richly ornate altar. One of the most interesting details is a series of eight circular paintings of an angel. The paintings are certainly of the church’s patron, St. Michael. They can be found above eight of the nave’s columns. Four paintings depict the angel as a messenger. The four others portray him as a musician playing a trumpet, organ, violin and harp. We found St. Michael’s open on a weekday. If you do as well, visit it quietly and respectfully and you will be rewarded with an uplifting experience.

St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Spring Hill, Minn.

The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council and the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association invite you to stop by the MN Soybean tent during Farmfest, Aug. 2-4, near Redwood Falls, Minn. MN Soybean (Booth No. 618) is the soybean farmer’s one-stop-shop for the latest soy news, information and prizes. This year’s guests include: The University of Minnesota, Minnesota Pork Board and MEG Corp. Displays will focus on the importance of animal agriculture, biodiesel and water quality and soybean researchers will be present to answer production questions. Representatives from national soybean groups — the United Soybean Board and the American Soybean Association — will also be on hand to meet attendees and discuss issues of national impact. Checkoff-sponsored biodiesel testing and prizes Once again, the soybean checkoff and the Ag Utilization Research Institute have partnered to give away 500 gallons of biodiesel to four lucky winners. Attendees can register at both locations — Booths 618 and 612. Winners will be notified after Farmfest and do not have to be present to win. Routine maintenance of your fuel system is the key to avoiding fuel related problems. That’s why MEG Corp. representatives will be on hand to test your fuel for water and bacteria. Just bring a one-quart sample of your fuel to the tent and receive your free test results back within a week. For the most accurate results, the sample should be taken from the bottom of the tank, not the nozzle. MSGA members enjoy special benefits As a “thank you” for supporting the MSGA and its policy efforts, all current MSGA members will receive a pair of work gloves and a coupon for a free pork chop (from the Minnesota Farm Bureau stand) just for stopping by. Quantities are limited so plan to come early. Not a current member? Sign up for a three-year membership on-site and you could win 100 hours usage of a Challenger Wheeled Tractor (MT600 Series) for the 2012 planting season. All current and renewing three-year members are also eligible, but must be at least 18 years of age to register. The MSGA and Ziegler Ag Equipment are proud to kick off this giveaway at Farmfest, with the winning name being drawn at the 2012 Minnesota Ag Expo on Jan. 23. ••• This article was submitted by MN Soybean.

Farmfest panels will get you thinking By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Always a big feature of Farmfest are the various panel presentations each day in the Forum Tent in the center of the show grounds. The forums are put together by Kent Thiesse, vice president of MinnStar Bank in Lake Crystal, Minn., whose economic expertise shows when assembling both themes and panel participants. When roaming agriculture these days, topics are endless since the non-ag segments of Minnesota and America have found social media via Facebook, Twitter, etc., a most convenient medium for spewing rhetoric.

What can producers do about increasingly serious threats to American agriculture? Catch a couple of the forums — Aug. 2’s “Regulation: The Biggest Threat to Production Agriculture?” and Aug. 3’s “Finding a Common Message for Agriculture” — and you’ll hear good answers, great suggestions about what needs to be done and who needs to do it. Listed below are some of these Farm-

fest panels’ presenters, and their brief comments on what they’ll be discussing. Aug. 2: “Regulation: The Biggest Threat to Production Agriculture?” Liz Wagstrom, National Pork Producers Council chief veterinarian: “I will be talking about the FDA’s (Food & Drug Administration) recently issued guidance about the use of antibiotics for livestock production as being injudicious. Under that guidance the FDA has said they want to do two things: 1) Remove all growth promotion or nutritional efficiency labels from drugs that are used both in animals and humans; and 2) Increase veterinary oversight of all uses of antibiotics although they don’t define what veterinary oversight would look like. “The point I’ll be making at Farmfest is that when you look at the usage of animal microbials in feed whether for growth promotion, disease control prevention or treatments there’s a body of scientifically peer-reviewed risk assessments that show that the risk to human health is negligible to almost

non-existent for those uses. I’ll review some of those ‘risk assessment’ concerns. Also I will share that if you stop using antibiotics in livestock production which results in sick animals which you later treat before these animals become part of the food supply chain, you often see more lesions when these animals are processed. Net results is more ‘peel outs’ from lungs and other carcass areas and these lesions actually contribute to more salmonella bacteria which could ultimately result in more food-borne illness. The point being there may be some unintended consequences in terms of these guidance proposals by FDA.” Dave Pfarr, farmer and Minnesota Corn Growers Association board member: “I’ll be talking about cropping systems and how regulations impact us both negatively, and positively, in terms of how we manage our land. I’ll mention in particular water manageSee THREAT, pg. 23F

much of what Washington, D.C., is talking about is just simply rhetoric. Science simply does not support what they’re asking. At times it’s a ‘wild card.’ We acknowledge that it seems like Washington can do just about whatever they wish. But hopefully science, and cooler heads, will prevail and we’ll work our way through these issues.” Don Scheifelbein, Minnesota State Cattleman’s Association president and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Citizen’s Board: “I’ll be talking about the importance of engaging the regulators so that their story can be effectively told from their perspective.

feedlot runoff controls, restrictions on the use of manure as a crop nutrient, pesticide application rules and limits on the installation and maintenance of water management systems (i.e. drainage and irrigation). Beyond the farm gate, those who install drain or irrigation systems or provide commercial manure, fertilizer and pesticide application services are also subject to strict permit, license and record-keeping requirements. “The calls to begin regulating agriculture thus must be characterized as either rooted in a lack of knowledge about the current regulations or a belief that they are inadequate. Either way, a productive dialog regarding ag regulations is more likely when both sides start with the same basic set of facts.” Matt Wohlman, Minnesota Department of Agriculture assistant commissioner: “Water and environmental issues are facing agriculture continually. But all discussions need to be prefaced with this simple question: How do we produce 50 percent more than current production to meet the world food needs by 2050? There are both tremendous opportunities, and some threats, to production agriculture. What’s needed is a balanced approach from both sides of the table. We need to set aside the environment-versus-agriculture debate and make every effort to move forward collectively. Today we have opportunities and challenges that need to be shared intelligently, and with science to verify decisions. “When we look at the remarkable progress of farmers in recent years not only are they greatly increasing production per acre, but they are also doing this with more positive conservation results than ever before. I remember growing up as a young Renville County farm kid when each fall we would moldboard plow the entire farm. Today that doesn’t happen. I think farmers have made huge strides and they keep getting better. Collectively we need to determine our target, our goals and then determine how to get there.” Bill Crawford, Minnesota Pork

Board president: “Regulations are just part of agriculture these days; we simply need to accept that fact of life. There are new rules coming down, either from federal or state, almost Bill Crawford routinely. The ‘air emissions’ stuff from EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is a concern, especially if there is some effort to trace dust to agriculture. Hopefully, our task is to keep a grip on what’s coming down. And if it’s totally off base, make certain our elected officials rethink the entire issue. “We hear some squabbles about the future of antibiotics in animal feeds. But the science is confirming that

It seems to be getting more and more difficult with more information demands. Here’s an example of where we have already lost production tools without gaining any particular useable options, particularly as it relates to pest management. “There are some good tradeoffs when it comes to pesticide record keeping and restricted-use pesticides which require an applicators license for usage. Obviously we producers have a strong concern and stewardship passion about our land and water resources. With that said, we understand the importance of regulations for our total environment. Policy people need to realize the logistics between putting words into regulations and products into useful implementation by us farmers.” Warren Formo, Minnesota Ag Water Resources Coalition executive director: “The topic of regulating agricultural activities has become a perennial crop during the past quarter century. But while the discussion continues from year to year, Warren Formo the volume of the conversation — in terms of both loudness and quantity — closely follows the federal farm bill cycle. The conversation typically begins with vague activist calls to begin regulating agriculture, followed by responses of ‘enough already’ from farmers and farm organizations. As one recent example, consider a 2011 report authored by the University of Minnesota Water Resources Center, which contains numerous references to agriculture as unregulated or underregulated, and suggests new consequences and enforcement measures. Even though these new ‘consequences’ are not provided in detail, many farmers perceive the report as a call for increased regulation. “The fact is farmers are subject to regulation in many ways already, including planning and zoning rules, fuel storage containment, buffer requirements, erosion prevention,

Soft-peddling ‘pro-farmer’ message doesn’t work anymore THREAT, from pg. 23F being raised are very emphatic in engaging regulators. Thus through no fault of their own, the regulators hear only one side of the story and that leads to a very biased viewpoint of what should be done in terms of regulations. The point being that we in the cattle industry need to share our story, especially to the regulators who really are only doing their job based on current rules and regulations.” Aug. 3: “Finding a Common Message for Agriculture”

Brian Greenslit, Renville County farmer, Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council: “I’m now also a board member of the new U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance. This board was put together with the sole purpose of defining what agriculture is, and what we do. For the most part, Americans don’t understand agriculture. What we do and who we are is being defined by others. And they mostly seem to believe that big-scale agriculture doesn’t have a right to exist.

“We see the need, the importance to change our tactics. And that means stop preaching to the choir. We’ve been soft-peddling the ‘pro farmer’ message for a couple years now and quite frankly, that just isn’t working. We’ll be advocating a new approach that gets the message to policy makers, and more importantly to rank-and-file Americans, that farmers are indeed our nation’s stewards of the land. Also we need to tell America that we are deeply concerned about our environment, and we do have a right to exist at the table. In fact we are the very providers for this table. Large-scale agriculture is nothing to be ashamed of or to fear. U.S. agriculture is a model for the rest of the world. We in production agriculture know that fact and we need to tell that story. “We have some powerful spokespeo-

ple on this new Alliance. Our nation’s commodity groups were the original investors in this concept. Rick Tolman, CEO of the National Corn Growers, and John Becker, executive director of the United Soybean Board spawned the idea. Bob Stallman, president of the American Farm Bureau, quickly bought into the thinking and is the current chairman of the Alliance. “We’ve got some firepower. John Deere, DuPont, the Fertilizer Institute are already industry partners and we’re just getting started. There will be many more industry partners. And the financial clout will be significant, like a $25 million to $30 million annual endeavor. In pure and simple terms, our nation needs to be educated about U.S. agriculture.” Staci Martin, AgStar Legislative and Regulatory Affairs director: “I’m looking forward to Farmfest and this opportunity to talk about the agriculture story.

THREAT, from pg. 24F farmers and ranchers strive to provide an abundant and safe food supply for all consumers. But as you dig down to find a common message for agriculture it can be quite complex. “One of the areas I’ll be exploring is engagement. So as I get ready for Farmfest I’ll be reaching out to many of my contacts connected within agriculture to get their perspectives on this issue. I want to get viewpoints from several others involved in this dynamic industry. We know there’s an increasing usage by rural Minnesotans of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. The more people understand these tools, the less trepidation. We still have some issues with broadband and lack of availability to the internet in some rural areas.” Stacy Thoeny, farm wife and Kanabec/Isanti county Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers chair: “I have many things to share. Finding a common message is a double-edged sword because we farmers tend to be quite independent. We often each have our own philosophy on the proper way of doing things and I think that’s part of the disconnect between farmers and non-farmers. So it’s important that our agricultural story be a unified story. And that’s why we need these ‘think-tank’ sessions to come up with those key elements on which we all agree. We all have a keen stewardship about the land we farm because not only is it our livelihood but it is also where we live and raise our families. So to me it’s important that we find the things we collectively agree on and build off those strengths. “ Brad Finstad, Center for Rural Policy and Development in St. Peter, Minn.:

Farm Families of the Year honored Minnesota farm operations are as varied as the families that make them up. On the following pages is a sampling of some of the families chosen as this year’s Farm Families of the Year. Also, turn to this week’s issue for more samples of these honored families. Aitkin County Dale and Linda Lueck Dale and Linda Lueck have been involved in farming since childhood. After the two were married in 1968, Dale entered the U.S. Navy, and the couple slowly acquired their 340-acre farm near Aitkin. Today their farm includes Dale’s grandparents’ original 80acre farm, Dale’s parents’ farm and several adjacent agricultural parcels. The farm is not yet a century farm, but land in his township has been worked by Dale’s ancestors for well over 100 years. The current farm focuses on feeder calf production. The herd has grown from six Angus stock cows to 60 stock cows, with a goal of expanding to 90 Angus-Tarentaise cross stock cows. Dale’s father, Fritz, son, Lance, and grandson Logan are also involved in the family operation.

Faribault County Paul and Karla Carr, Roger and Candis Carr Roger Carr was born on the farm in Pilot Grove Township where he and his wife, Candis, still reside. He began farming in 1957. Son, Paul, has a lifelong involvement in the farm. In fact, after graduation from South Dakota State University, he and his wife, Karla, moved back to join the farm operation. Today, the Carr family grows corn and soybeans west of Elmore. They also have a small cow-calf operation. On the farm, Roger, Paul, Candis and Karla are all involved in the field work. Paul and Karla handle the cattle chores with the help of their sons, Luke and Anthony. When Karla and Paul’s youngest children, Marie and John get older, they will be helpers too.

<< FARMFEST ’11 >>

Blue Earth County Landsteiner Family Farm The Landsteiner Family Farm was established in 1920 by August and Josephine Landsteiner. It was then passed down to son Bernard who farmed with his father until 1957. Years later, Bernard’s sons Lawrence, James and Paul entered the farming operation and farmed with Bernard until he retired in 1988. Today the Landsteiner brothers grow corn, soybeans, wheat and custom feed hogs for a local producer. Even though Lawrence (the eldest brother) and his wife, Joan, retired from farming in 2008, Lawrence continues to

help with all aspects of the operation. Lawrence and Joan have two sons and three grandchildren. Sons Jim and Paul along with their wives Jackie and Shellie continue to manage and operate the family farm. Jim and Jackie have three children: Kate, Ted and Jay. Paul and Shellie have three daughters: Merrit, Molly and Maddie. Carlton County Suhonen Farm Jeff and Theresa Suhonen bought their family farm near Wright in 1988 from Jeff’s parents, Nilo and Vera Suhonen. The farm had been in the family since 1913. In the past, Jeff and Theresa have raised chickens, rabbits, pigs, horses and pygmy goats. Today they have registered and commercial Simmental beef cattle as well as registered Hampshire sheep. They also own 355 acres. Jeff and Theresa have three children: Derek (18), Samantha (15), and Jennifer (11). The entire family is involved in the operation on a day-to-day basis. All three children own their own cattle and sheep, and have been buying and selling their own livestock, making hay, doing daily chores and showing their livestock with pride at the Carlton County Fair, Minnesota State Fair and the Northeast Livestock Show.

THE LAND, FARMFEST ANNUAL 2011

Farm Families honored Fillmore County Craig and Pam Mensink In the 1940s, Craig Mensink’s grandfather Earl Mensink purchased the family farm. It was later turned over to Craig’s parents, Wendell and Cleo Mensink, and then to Craig and Pam in 1978. The farm has undergone many changes throughout the ownerships. It has gone from a dairy to beef to swine farm. Today, the Mensink’s farm near Preston has 1,500 acres of corn, soybeans and alfalfa. They also finish 8,500 head of feeder pigs. Craig and Pam believe in conservation and still have the original contour strips and terraces. They no-till their soybeans, and utilize their nutrient management plan to use as much natural fertilizer as possible. Craig and Pam have three grown children: Michael (Rachel), Mandy (Nate) and Megan. Grant County Michael and Lynn Marks Michael Marks always wanted to farm. He was able to partially pursue that dream as a sophomore in high school when his father took a manager position at the co-op. After high school, Michael attended Moorhead State University. Following graduation in 1973, he came home and began farming full time. Currently, the Marks family farm

near Norcross has 1,500 acres of crops in Minnesota and North Dakota with the majority in Minnesota. Their crops consist of corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. They also raise about 70 ewes that are lambed out each spring. Michael and Lynn have one son, Andrew, and three daughters Ashlie, Alayna and Allie. Andrew farms alongside Michael and Lynn. Hennepin County Sever Peterson Farm and Corn Maze The Sever Peterson Farm near Eden Prairie was established by Sever’s grandfather in the late1880s. Today the farm has three main components: roadside stands, crops and a corn maze. The family has 17 vegetable stands across the western Minneapolis suburbs that run from June through August. They also have corn and soybean fields. In addition, for the past 15 years, they have had a corn maze. This includes a pumpkin patch, live music and exotic animals. The Peterson corn maze was the first in Minnesota and the second in the United States. Sever’s wife, Sharon, daughter-in-law Nichola, son Aaron, son-in-law Mitch, and brother Lowell also help with the stands maze, fields and machinery.

Farm Families of the Year honored Kanabec County Martens Farm Inc. The Martens farm was farmed by great-grandfather Peter Wilkens, then grandparents Duke and Cora Martens, then father Gary and Uncle Don, and then finally Rick and Janet in 2000. Rick and Janet’s son Ryan also joined the operation in 2010. The current farm has 320 acres of grass hay land, which is sold to dairies for dry cows. Another operation the family has is the conservation practice of Aerway equipment with manure application. The Martens family was one of the first in the state to use the hose drag method and move 65 million gallons of manure a year with the self constructed equipment. The hose application utilizes two and half miles of hose and places the manure into the top six inches of farmer’s soil. The business specializes in small farms located within a 175-mile radius of the farm. Le Sueur County Schwarz Family: Greg, Joan, Tom, and Allison Lone Oak Farm located near Le Sueur was incorporated in 1998. It is a fifth generation diversified family farm dating back to 1875. Today, it grows corn and soybeans on about 1,000 acres. In addition, about 70,000 Tom turkeys are marketed annually. Greg’s parents, Elden and Frances, are still active in the farm operation in

the spring and fall. Greg and Joan have two children. Tom (15) and Allison (12) help when they are not busy with school and sports. Martin County Lawrence and Diane Sukalski and Family Since 1885, five generations of the Sukalski family have worked the same soil to grow corn and soybeans in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. The current Sukalski farm near Fairmont consists of corn and soybeans while utilizing conservation tillage. They have land enrolled in CRP, Re-invest In Minnesota, Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program and Conservation Stewardship Program. The grain they produce is used for renewable fuels and livestock feeds. Over the years, Lawrence and Diane expanded their production acres to partner with Lawrence’s brother Harlan. The expansion has allowed them to bring their five children into farming, in addition to Lawrence’s brother Rod. Lawrence, Diane and Harlan manage and work on the farm full time. Lawrence and Diane have five children and two daughters-in-law: Jacob (Courtney), Andrew (Megan), Kristina, Michael and Suzanne.

McLeod County Paul and Heather Wright and Cody, Breanna, Allison and McKenna Paul and Heather Wright are the third generation to operate their family farm south of Hutchinson. Dairy cattle and cash crops have always been the main components of the farm since its origin. Over the years, the farm as tried to keep pace with modern agriculture practice by upgrading milking equipment, feeding equipment and auto steer tractors. The dairy herd has kept improving over the years to the current 25,000 pound rolling herd average. The Wrights also use embryo transfer technology to keep high-quality animal health. Most of the corn and alfalfa are used as feed for the cows. The Wrights sell their soybeans for seed production or food export contracts. The Wrights have also found a niche market for their straw. They have developed miniature straw bales that they sell at many garden centers and nurseries in the metro area. Paul and Heather have four children: Cody, Breanna, Allison and McKenna.

Farmfest Forum to examine land grant mission this forum walk away with a “pretty good understanding of what the general needs are.” He also hopes that people see “how the needs of the agriculture community can be met by the university.” Jim Nesseth offers a unique perspective to this panel, as a former county Extension agent and now as owner of Extended Ag Services of Lakefield, Minn. Participating in a Farmfest forum for the first time, he said he is ready to talk passionately about what he likes about land grant institutions and what he thinks should be changed. “The land grant mission, if followed correctly, is second to none,” Nesseth said. He said there are a few areas, however, where other land grant universities such as Iowa State University and South Dakota State University are doing a better job than the U of M, such as getting research information out to people in a timely manner. He believes there needs to be more “focus

on applied research.” He would like to see an opportunity to “reward the productive people in the large institutions.” He wants the university to “listen to us.” Unlike in education, Nesseth said, “In my business if I don’t satisfy my customer I lose them.” He would like those who attend the forum to have “a better understanding on how their tax dollars are spent.” He also “hopes they feel their voices are being heard.” In his business “in order for us to give good advice we need good information.” That information comes from research and development at the university. “Keeping the Land Grant Mission Alive” will be held 10:30-11:50 a.m. on Aug. 4 at the Farmfest Forum Tent. Other panelists participating are Bev Durgan, University of Minnesota Extension dean, and Gene Stoehl, chairman of the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
