Hero. Four little letters, one small word. But this is one of the strongest words in the English language. Hero took on greater meaning 10 years ago on Sept. 11. The day started like most any other, but it soon changed as news LAND MINDS spread of an airplane crashBy Kevin Schulz ing into one of the World Trade Center towers. Well, we all know how that day unfolded. Stories of many heroes from that fateful day have been told and retold. Many heroes survived that day; many others died while performing their heroic duties. Some of these heroes wore a uniform and a badge, risking their own lives to enter the burning Twin Towers and the Pentagon to rescue those trapped inside. Of course, who can forget about the heroes of Flight 93, such as Thomas Burnett and other passengers, who thwarted the hijackers’ attempt to do further damage? They took a stand against evil and drove the plane into a Pennsylvania field rather than the next target. Since 9/11 we have heard many stories of heroes in the wars the United States has been involved in. Support the wars or not, but you cannot deny the heroism of anyone who voluntarily wears a military uniform in defense of our freedom and democracy around the world. I am glad that these people are willing to put their life on the line to make the United States still the best place to live. I know that I could never have voluntarily joined the military, and our country is better off that I chose a different career path. Heroes don’t always wear a uniform or a badge, as the passengers on the 9/11 Flight 93 proved. Heroes don’t even have to ever save a life. Heroes can come in any shape, form, size and

A hero can be someone who simply pays for a meal for the person behind them in the drivethrough lane, or a hero can be someone who takes an active interest in helping a young child get a better life. All too often the hero label gets attached to someone who is getting paid millions of dollars to play a game. That is not a hero; that is an individual blessed with Godgiven athletic ability at a high level. Gifted person? Yes. Hero? I don’t think so. You have to decide what a hero means to you. Maybe more importantly, you need to ask yourself if you are a hero to anyone. As a father of two beautiful daughters, I like to think that I have been a hero at one time or another in their lives. Maybe I’ve been a hero to someone I’m not even related to, someone I’ve just crossed paths with. As we reflect on this 10th anniversary of that September day, let us remember those heroes who lost their lives that day and since. Let us also reflect on what makes someone a hero to us, and what makes us a hero to those in the world around us. Do you have what it takes to be a hero? ••• Kevin Schulz is editor of The Land.

THE LAND, AUGUST 19, 2011

I arrived at the Minnesota State Fair as an 11year-old feeling overwhelmed and apprehensive. Lugging my suitcase in one hand and clutching my pillow in the other, I stared around me at the seemingly endless crowds. By the time I dropped off my luggage at the 4-H Building, it was time to head to the barns. As I brought water to my pig, I forced back tears. I hardly knew anyone and I was homesick. Then I heard one of the older girls from my county call my name. When she asked me to come with her to get something to eat, I smiled and joined her. This one person, showing she cared, was all it took to brighten my first experience at the fair. Now I am a 4-H state ambassador, serving as a spokesperson for 4-H. State ambassadors are also part of a “youth teaching youth” model, teaching hundreds of Minnesota youth across the state about leadership, service, diversity and teamwork. Through 4-H, I have gained so much. I have learned how to respect opinions and take advice from others through the group judging process. I’ve learned the importance of perseverance—of never giving up. Directing small group discussions taught me to lead and built my confidence. Every speech or demonstration was an opportunity to further my communication skills. Whatever young people care about, there is a place for every one of them in 4-H. As a 4-H state ambassador, I invite you to come to the 4-H Building during the 2011 Minnesota State Fair, Aug. 25 through Sept. 5. You’ll see more than 6,000 youth exhibitors from all 87 counties in Minnesota. You’ll find more than 3,000 exhibits in the 4H Building, covering more than 60 project areas, as well as a free musical “Arts-In” performance on the stage. You’ll see almost 3000 animals shown by livestock project participants. Of all the things I do as a 4-H ambassador at the State Fair, the thing that has brought me the most satisfaction is talking to the youngest 4-H exhibitors. I sit with different kids at every meal, seeking out those who look lost or are sitting alone. It is my turn

Commentary: Our colossal ignorance on global warming “It’s not just that man-made emissions don’t control the climate, they don’t even control global CO2 levels.” That’s the incredible message Murry Salby, chair of Climate Science at the respected Macquarie University in Australia, presented recently to the Sydney Institute. Professor Salby’s paper, with all the graphs, will be released in about six weeks. His book “Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate” will be released later this year. Don’t expect an easy read, but if his research holds up, it could well change the direction of the entire climate debate. Salby suggests that the earth’s own warming since the depths of the Little Ice Age (1680) has produced the higher CO2 levels in our atmosphere

today. Not the other way around. He notes that humans emit about 5.5 gigatons of CO2 each year, but the oceans emit about 90 gigatons, and plants about 60 gigtatons. Salby says that many scientists have assumed the net flows of carbon to and from the natural sinks cancel each other out, but there’s no reliable data to confirm this. If there’s been even a fractional change in natural emissions that would overwhelm the human emissions blamed for our warming. Salby looked at the longest CO2 record we have — Mauna Loa in Hawaii — and graphed the changes from year to year. Some years, the CO2 concentration rose not at all. Some years it rose by 3 parts per million by volume. He reasoned that if the CO2 increases were due to man-made CO2, we should have seen faster increases with global industrialization. Instead, Salby found that the world warmed fastest during the warm El Niño years, our hottest time periods. The CO2 increased least during the years after vol-

canic eruptions, when volcanic dust blotted out much of the sunlight, and cooled the earth. Salby also found that the big sources of CO2 don’t seem to be the industrialized areas such as Western Europe and North America. The sources appear to be more concentrated over the Amazon and tropical Africa. Perhaps the book will tell us why. If the planet has been warming since 1680 AD, might that be time enough for the earth to reinforce its own heating with extra CO2 from warming seas and more vegetation growing and decaying in the heat? Certainly the warming oceans would be releasing more CO2 and they hold 70 times as much CO2 as the air. The White Cliffs of Dover are calcified CO2 that was up-thrust from the sea bottom by geologic activity, and there is lots more where that came from. Tom Quirk, a fellow of three Oxford colleges, has also written on the worldwide mixing of CO2. He used the carbon14 emitted by nuclear tests in the 1950s and 1960s to check the mixing time between hemispheres, as a test for the global atmospheric mixing time of carbon dioxide. It took several years. Measuring the CO2 at Mauna Loa against CO2 measurements at the South Pole, Quirk concluded, “There does not appear to be any time difference between the hemispheres ... . The annual increases may be coming from a global or equatorial source.” Such as the oceans? ••• This commentary was submitted by Dennis Avery, a senior fellow for the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., and the director for the Center for Global Food Issues.

Protecting your pets — cancer in canines is treatable Cancer is a debilitating disease affecting millions of Americans. The same is true for animals, as approximately 50 percent of all dogs over the age of 10 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. Being aware of the possibility of cancer in your canine and having your veterinarian perform regular checkups can help to ensure that you are doing the best for your dog. According to Heather Wilson, assistant professor in oncology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, the most com-

Design Westfield augers are better by design. Each is engineered and designed for its particular size, meaning weight and strength are properly proportioned, balance is correct, and everything fits and works like it should.

Osteosarcoma is a bone tumor that affects the limbs of large and giant breed dogs most often. ... Most dogs will eventually succumb to the disease if it spreads to the lungs. — Heather Wilson

Go of od S Ne ele on w Au ctio Ha ge n nd rs

mon types of cancer in dogs is lymphoma (tumor of the lymph nodes), osteosarcoma (tumor of the bones), and mast cell tumors (skin tumor). “Lymphoma most commonly affects the lymph nodes, but can also affect other parts of the body such as the liver, spleen, bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and the central nervous system,” explained Wilson. “This disease is generally not curable, but is very treatable with chemotherapy.” “Osteosarcoma is a bone tumor that affects the limbs of large and giant breed dogs most often,” said Wilson.

“These tumors are again generally not curable, but can be treated with amputation of the affected limb and chemotherapy does increase survival. However, most dogs will eventually succumb to the disease if it spreads to the lungs.” Mast cell tumors commonly occur on the skin and they are the most common type of malignant skin tumors in dogs. Most of these tumors are removed and cured with surgery. However, some are very aggressive and are so likely to spread that chemotherapy must be integrated into the treatment protocol See CANCER, pg. 9A

Choice Westfield still gives you the biggest choice in the industry. Pick the exact size, capacity and drive style you want. Select from 8”, 10”, or 13” diameters in lengths from 26’ to 91’. Choose from PTO belt or shaft drive, gas motor and two electric motor drives depending on your needs and preference.

Value When comparing design, construction and choice with price, we’re sure you’ll find Westfield augers are the top value.

CANCER, from pg. 8A after surgery. Other tumors may require radiation therapy if they are not completely removed during surgery. “Any dog can get cancer, but certain breeds such as the Golden Retrievers, Boxers, German shepherds, Rottweilers, and Bernese Mountain dogs are predisposed to many forms of cancer,” noted Wilson. As cancer is so common in dogs, annual geriatric exams with a veterinarian are strongly encouraged. After a cancer diagnosis and treatment, Wilson recommends monitoring the pet for recurrence every two to six months for three years. The frequency of the checkups depends on the type of tumor. It is important to regularly perform at-home physical examinations on your pet. You should look for any lumps, specifically around the lymph nodes in the neck. However, not all tumors are visible; therefore, regular veterinary visits are crucial to guarantee your pet’s health. While cancer can be extremely stressful for owners and pets, the good news is that with the amount of resources and specialists that are now available to treat cancer in pets, owners now have the power to make educated and responsible decisions to get their companion animals through this illness. In recent decades, veterinary medicine has progressively The earlier we advanced to offer techcan identify cannology and treatment cer the better of human quality for we can treat it. pets to help aid in cancer treatment and — Heather Wilson other illnesses. The Diagnostic Imaging and Cancer Treatment Center at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M is one example of the new state-of-the-art facilities now available for companion animals. The diagnostic center is set to open its doors in the next couple of months and it will greatly improve the quality of care animal patients receive due to the highly advanced capabilities of the new technology. “The (diagnostic center) will house advanced imaging equipment that will help us find and monitor cancer at a much earlier stage than was previously possible,” explained Wilson. “The earlier we can identify cancer the better we can treat it.” Cancer’s prevalent nature makes it an important topic to research and learn more about.

Those of you farther north may wish to use wild raspberries or blueberries. Grocery stores and farmers markets also have a lovely selection of berries that don’t require mosquito bites and thorn scratches. These baked-from-scratch breakfast bars are much-improved versions of the ones wrapped in foil at every convenience store checkout nowadays. Blackberry Breakfast Bars Submitted by Char Davis

Add garlic and sauté until it starts to brown slightly around the edges. Add mushrooms and onions and sauté until tender. Add carrots, zucchini and broccoli; continue to sauté until tender, 2-3 minutes. Drop cooked pasta into boiling water for 5 seconds. Let drain until almost all the water is drained (leave enough liquid to deglaze the pan and bring up the flavors). Incorporate pasta into the sautéed vegetables. Toss with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately. ■ One of my sons much prefers pie over cake, so for his birthday we often serve a special pie instead.

Excessive consumption only results in wanting more Employers sometimes use games, activities and competitions to motivate and energize personnel. Sales contests enhance the bottom line. Biggest Loser tournaments inspire weight loss, and “Wii Not Fit” competitions encourage workers to exercise. During the month of August, the staff at GEMS THE BACK PORCH Girls’ Clubs, the ministry through which I’m employed, By Lenae Bulthuis delivered the Clothing Challenge. In August we were instructed to limit our wardrobe to 15 items (underwear, pajamas, workout clothes, shoes, and bathing suits didn’t count). A dress counted as one. A pair of jeans and a shirt counted as two items, and so on. The purpose of the Clothing Challenge was to give us a greater understanding of what it feels like to be a girl in Zambia, Africa, who doesn’t have a closet overflowing with outfit possibilities. GEMS Girls’ Clubs is an international ministry that is offered in local churches and Christian organizations throughout the United States and Canada. There are over 800 clubs in North America, and over 75 clubs in Zambia which is a focal destination of the North American girls who have fundraised, sacrificed and prayed toward starting clubs and building a school for underprivileged chil-

PORCH, from pg. 12A you ever feel overwhelmed, instead of overjoyed, by your possessions? Do you secretly wish a gale force wind would blow the clutter from your home? If so, it’s time to simplify your life!” I used to scoff at such at a thought. At my bridal shower my pastor’s wife gifted me the book “Living More with Less” by Doris Janzen Longacre. It was a book before its time. Before living simply and going green became the culture buzzwords, it gave practical wisdom on living a simple, sustainable and healthy lifestyle that kept the big picture of the poor in perspective. I didn’t appreciate it. After thumbing through it a time or two, I gave it away. Twenty-some years later, I added it my wish list and received it as a Christmas gift from my children. Not only did I soak it in with a greater underWould we feel standing of the joy worse if we were of living with robbed of our pos- enough, my daughsessions or robbed ters have read it, of life — faith, too. hope and love? Admittedly, I’m a slow learner. There’s a ferocious battle within my spirit between desiring things that I don’t own and understanding that I own more than I need. This month in the clothing department I’ve discovered that living with less means less time deciding what to wear in the morning, less money in the clothing budget, and less laundry. In the first week of this challenge, I discovered that less stuff truly equates more joy. Would I feel the same joy if the month-long challenge inflated to a year-round certainty? I wish I could say yes with unwavering confidence. In his blog post, 10 Reasons to Escape Excessive Consumerism, Joshua Becker writes, “Excessive consumption leads to bigger houses, faster cars, trendier clothes, fancier technology, and overfilled drawers. It promises happiness, but never delivers. Instead, it results in a desire for more ... a desire that is promoted by the world around us. And it slowly begins robbing us of life.” Would we feel worse if we were robbed of our possessions or robbed of life — faith, hope and love? Becker says it better than I. “Escaping excessive consumption is not an easy battle. If it were, it would be done more often ... myself included. But it is a battle worth fighting because it robs us of life far more than we realize.” ••• Lenae Bulthuis is a wife, mom and friend who muses from her back porch on a Minnesota grain and livestock farm.

Fish finders — Too bad technology can’t make ’em bite

THE LAND, AUGUST 19, 2011

Like most every other fisherman, I have a couple of computers hanging on my boat. In fisherman’s lingo, they’re known as “fish finders.” I’m no computer geek, but I’d be willing to bet the banks of computers NASA relied on back in the 1960s to get men to the moon and back weren’t much more powerful then those we now use to pursue pea-brained fish. By any technological measure, mine rank as relative antiques. The newest fish finding wonders featuring side-imaging and high-definition resolution require far more computing power still.

Sonar revealed that fish indeed were in the neighborhood but except for one sheepshead and a small crappie, they evidently were in no mood to sample the variety of baits I offered them. Back at the access, other fishermen shared similar tales. Plenty of fish marked, but few takers. Summer doldrums? Wrong time of the day? Wrong wind conditions? Wrong baits? Wrong colors of baits? All good questions, to be sure. Better yet, they were all great excuses. ••• John Cross is a Mankato (Minn.) Free Press staff writer.

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Katie Winslow did not hide her excitement after being named Minnesota’s new Pork Ambassador at Farmfest. “I’m absolutely ecstatic. I came into this uncertain what would happen. This is such an honor,” the 18-year-old Fillmore County farm gal said. She’s looking forward to sharing her passion about the pork industry and teaching others about the health and nutrition benefits of including pork in the diet. Plus she wants to also share more about what agriculture is all about and why it is such a splendid place for raising a family and being close to nature. She and the two runners-up, Ryan Strobel of Pemberton, Minn., and Natalie Johnson of Morris, Minn., will be spending several days at the Minnesota State Fair working at the Pork Promotion and the Oink booth, plus they’ll participate in Agriculture Feeds America, a Kansas City seminar in October. Their agenda also includes the National Barrow Show in Austin, Minn.; the Taste of Minnesota, some Minnesota Twins games when the Minnesota Producers Association will be doing special promotions, even the National Pork Congress next June in Des Moines, Iowa. As Minnesota Pork Ambassador, Winslow received a $1,500 scholarship. Winslow is majoring in agricultural education with a minor in political science at the University of Minnesota. Her career path is to become an ag instructor or working with commodity or farm groups doing promotional and educational programs about agriculture. “I very much want the opportunity to be telling the remarkable story about pork and Minnesota agriculture.” Strobel is a veterinary medicine student at the University of Minnesota. He received a $750 scholarship. Johnston is pursuing an animal science degree at the University of Minnesota and received a $500 scholarship. When asked about the biggest misconception that consumers have about pork, Winslow said, “many think that pork is unhealthy. Just the opposite, however, since pork today is much leaner, much healthier and packs a stronger protein punch. Pure and simple, pork has a very large nutritional value. Too many folks have the notion that they can mostly rely on vegetables. But you get as good or better nutrition from pork.” She added with a generous grin, “Plus it tastes a lot better.” Winslow is the daughter of Scott and Jean Winslow, long-time Fountain, Minn.-area farmers in Fillmore County. Winslow, Strobel and Johnston represent the state’s 4,000 pork producing families. Lee Kloeckner of Adams received $250 for his winning essay on Pork Safety. Kevin Welter of Stewartville earned congeniality honors from his fellow pork ambassador

Paap: A five-finger approach to the farm bill By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer With ag leaders and politicians in abundance at Farmfest, opinions abounded on everything from Gov. Mark Dayton’s handling of Ole and Lena stories during the Linder Farm Network’s show to how many pork chops did Sen. Al Franken consume at the Farm Bureau tent. Every farm organization and commod- Kevin Paap ity group had voices galore eager to share the agricultural success story in the various forums.

first. Do we really need a farm program? Strong spokesman that he is, Paap immediately responded, “Yes and here’s why. Our nation needs to have food, conservation and nutrition security. We’re all talking about the proposed new farm bill but let’s remember, there are 15 different titles within the farm bill. “It’s more than commodity programs; more than crop insurance; more than

livestock issues. It’s rural development. It’s fuel and alternative energy. It’s forestry. And, most importantly, it’s food for American consumers and growing numbers of people in other parts of the world.” The current farm bill is labeled The Food, Energy & Conservation Act. “People need to understand it’s not important just to farmers. It’s not just to protect rural America. It is important to all America and millions of others around the globe.” He pointed out that the food aid and nutrition programs gobble up most of the U.S. Department of Agriculture budget. “This year 80 percent of our socalled farm bill expenses will go for nutrition programs. ... We can’t have a farm bill discussion without understanding the budget,” Paap said, using the fingers of his left hand to illustrate how Congress allocates money. • Medicare and Medicaid are 30 percent of the budget. • Social Security accounts for 22 percent. • Defense spending is 15 percent • Interest payments account for 14 percent “That leaves only 19 percent for everything else including less than 4 percent for agriculture with 80 percent of that for food and nutrition programs.

“My point,” Paap said, using his fifth finger to make that point, “our nation’s budget cannot be balanced simply by cutting the farm bill.” He related that federal spending was $196 billion in 1970, $1.2 trillion in 1990 and currently it is $3.729 trillion, yet agriculture’s share of this pie has been less than 4 percent for the past 40 years. He and other speakers stressed the importance of all farm groups, all commodity organizations working together to make certain the Washington committee putting words together for the 2012 farm bill understands the role of agriculture in the U.S. and world economy. “If we don’t, we will have nothing,” he cautioned. His concern is the latest D.C. committee referred to as “the group of 12” charged with outlining the next U.S. budget. “We have 435 members in the House of Representatives but less than 100 come from rural communities. We’re having people determining the future of agriculture that simply don’t understand agriculture. So a huge role of Farm Bureau and every farm organization is communicating with the leadership on both sides of the aisle. We know there will be cuts. We just want these cuts to be fair and across the board for all.”

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer “Agriculture in general, and that includes us cattle producers, has seen the light that we need to communicate with our consumers rather than let the animal activist groups tell their story,” said Pete Bakken, a Rock County, Minn., beef producer. Bakken and his brother Jay operate a 1,500-acre farm, as well as feeding out about 4,500 head of beef animals each year and also maintain a 200-beef cow operation on a nearby half-section grassland facility. Bakken shared his comments with a bus load of dietitians, food consultants and health nutritionists participating in the Beef/Dairy Culinary Workshop hosted by Colleen Zenk, Minnesota Beef Council director of Nutrition and Consumer Information. Bakken told this group, “even though some of the comments of these activist people might be true, in the words of Paul Harvey the ‘rest of the story’ about American farmers never gets told. We realize ‘the rest of the story’ is in fact our responsibility.” Bakken is president of the Rock County Farm Bureau, which each year conducts its “I met a farmer” tour inviting non-ag people to join in actual on-farm presentations by various Rock County farmers. “The folks are very receptive to our messages. They’re interested in what they are seeing; getting a much better understanding of where their food comes from. And despite the negative press they so often experience relating to agriculture, these folks truly are interested in what we do, and how we do it. “One tour lady commented to me, ‘I really have no interest to think past the grocery store because when I buy my food I know it’s there, it’s affordable and its safe.’ Yet she was totally fascinated and intrigued with all the science, all the health care and all the comfort and nutrition we provide for our animals. She was amazed to learn that often our animals have better nutrition than we people.” Bakken said that it’s more important to hear the questions and concerns of non-ag people. “By listening to the questions of these people I’m often made aware of some issues, that just maybe I as a beef producer need to make an adjustment.” Marketing is critical Even with incredible volatility in both grain and livestock pricing these days, Bakken said that along See BAKKEN, pg. 22A

Minnesota beef sector facts

THE LAND, AUGUST 19, 2011

According to the Minnesota Beef Council, the state’s beef industry generates nearly $1.2 billion in annual economic activity, including: • Over $850 million in processing • Uses over $205 million of corn (40 million bushels) • Purchases over $60 million in distillers grains • Spends over $50 million in additional feed processing and sales. Every beef cow generates approximately $3,100 in annual economic value. The beef sector provides added value for corn farmers, including utilization of corn, corn silage and distillers grains.

His system is projected to generate 49,000 kwh per year which approximates his yearly electrical usage. Referred to as net metering, any electricity generated beyond his daily use is metered into the electrical grid of his local utility and is reimbursed back to Trost at the retail rate which is about 10 cents per kw. “Working with Zinniel Electric was great. They did everything they said they would do and they did it on time,” Trost said. His system is a TenKsolar system which is Minnesota-made qualifying him for the additional Xcel rebate package.

wiring, but this too requires inspection by a state electrical inspector to make certain it meets code. Fewer hours of sunlight during the winter simply means less solar generation; about 30 percent less, Zinniel said. Costs to go solar? Think in terms of an entire system and the cost is $6 to $7 per watt. Installing an 8K (8,000 watts) home system would run $48,000 to $56,000 without rebates, incentives, etc., Zinniel said. Phil Lipetzky, Green Energy Products LLC, of Springfield, Minn., is a three-year dealer-installer for SunPower solar units. The primary activity of Green Energy has been the farm market but residential installations are also gaining favor. “As electrical costs continue to climb, alternative energy sources are in the minds of more and more people,” Lipetzky said. Credits and rebates are helping. The Federal Investment Energy Tax Credit is 30 percent of installed cost and is in place until 2016. Xcel currently offers a rebate program of $2.25 per watt, he said, so a 5,000-watt system would earn an $11,250 rebate. Typical residential solar installations for Green Energy mostly range from 1,000 watt systems to 6,000 watts with costs then ranging from $12,000 to $40,000. Costs also vary depending on roof mounts to pole mounts to tracking system units plus distance from the local utility. Commercial installations generally are 20kw and higher. Lipetzky said SunPower has the highest efficiency panels

on the market which put SunPower in the Guinness Book of World Records. Efficiency does matter in solar because higher efficiency yields more kwh. He said about 85 percent of their installations are pole-mounted units. “Farmers seem to prefer the pole mount over roof units because they have the open space. Plus you can adjust a polemount seasonally which results in more power output and they stay cooler which also boosts output just a bit. “Next door to our office is a polemounted 5,520 watt system which in 12 1/2 months did over 9,000 kwhs. If roof-mounted that same system might have done only about 7,500 kwh.” Installation time is quick for roof mounts; longer for pole mounts because of time for the concrete to cure. Paper work with Xcel is longer, Lipetzky said. Apparently you don’t need to be concerned about hail damage to solar systems. “We haven’t had any problems. These units are all impact tested i.e., 1-inch hail, 13 times at 52 mph is the industry standard. We’ve had sites with 2inch hail and no damage. Also battery technology still isn’t far enough along to suggest ‘battery storage’ of your extra solar energy,” Lipetzky said. His firm provides a 10-year warranty including workmanship on all parts of the SunPower systems. They’re also looking at rolling out a “production warranty” covering a 10-year period.

Grain Outlook Stock market spills into corn

Livestock Angles Sharp rallies for cattle, hogs

Grain Angles Markets focused on big issues

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 August 15. CORN — Corn began the week on a down note as the collapse in the stock market spilled over into a broad range of commodities. However, relative performance remained fairly strong with the tight stocks situation preventing corn from declining too sharply. TIM EMSLIE Country Hedging Corn conditions declined on St. Paul Monday by 2 points to 60 percent good/excellent. That’s 11 points below last year’s rating during the same week. Rainfall during week was the best in the eastern Corn Belt. The area that received the least rainfall during the week was from central Iowa through central Illinois. Most of the focus during the week was on evaluating the effect of the hot July weather on the corn crop. On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture report pegged national corn yield at 153 mb, below trade expectations. Only four states saw their yields come in above their 1990-2010 trend yields: South Dakota, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Georgia. North Dakota and Minnesota were about 6-7 percent below trend, which was viewed by some as too low. On the other side, Illinois and Iowa were estimated at only 3-4 percent below trend, which is seen as potentially too high. Harvested acreage was lowered

The livestock markets have started the month of August with a strong upward move. Both the cattle and hogs have enjoyed sharp rallies in both the cash and Futures markets, with the hogs making all-time new cash high prices, and the cattle approaching their all time highs. The cattle market saw good Futures buying as the hedge and index funds again moved into long positions. This made the basis extremely wide and packers followed the increasing Futures with cash bids in line with the normal basis; thus the stronger cash price paid by the packers. This forced the packer to ask JOE TEALE more for the beef products to Broker maintain their margins and the Great Plains Commodity Afton beef cutouts have increased during the past few weeks in response. As history would suggest, as the beef cutouts rise, the volume of the boxed beef begins to fall off in response to the higher prices. Weather has also been a contributor to the price movement in the cattle trade. The warm weather has contributed to the marketing of cattle early as well as consumers avoiding grilling because of the high temperatures. This has also forced many cattle in the Southwest to come off the deteriorating pastures and into feedlots which could show up in the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report on Aug. 19 in heavier than expected placements. Considering the floundering economy, the demand for beef will continue to be suspect especially if it continues to move higher. With prices near all-time

It was with great anticipation that the market waited for the August U.S. Department of Agriculture Crop Report. The USDA was to report on the resurvey work that was conducted in the northern Corn Belt. Many were anticipating that fewer acres of corn were planted due to the poor growing conditions this past spring. Yet, the USDA did not make any revisions from the July report on corn planted acres, continuing to estimate that 92.3 million acres were planted. They did lower the harvested TOM NEHER acres by 0.6 percent to 84.4 million acres. The USDA did lower AgStar VP Agribusiness & Grain Specialist soybean planted acres by 0.3 perRochester cent from the July report; to 75 million acres planted. The USDA lowered the corn yield by 3.6 percent from the July report, to 153 bushels per acre. They also lowered the soybean yield by 4.6 percent from the July report, to 41.4 bu./acre. This lowering of the yield is attributed to the extreme growing conditions that many areas experienced with record heat during the month of July. These declining yields will keep the U.S. stocks-to-use ratios very tight at 5.4 percent for corn and 4.9 percent for soybeans. Given these reductions in crop size, one would have thought that the market would have had a greater reaction to the news. Corn did briefly trade up the limit, but failed to maintain that level at the closing bell. Prices did challenge the contract highs, but did not set new high marks. One would have to conclude

Resurvey leads to drop in soybean acres planted MARKETING

of the change in ending stocks was the result of an increased 2010-11 balance and a change to the import-export bal-

ance. OUTLOOK: December corn managed to eke out an 11 1⁄2 cent gain for the week ended Aug. 12. Viewed from the perspective of the news about corn production and stocks during the week, that was a fairly unimpressive performance. However, considering the economic backdrop of the last two weeks, prices performed pretty well. Some of the reduction in crop size was anticipated by the trade, so tight ending stocks projections were not wholly unexpected. Considering that it appears the rationing is already being anticipated prior to the start of the marketing year, corn should be well supported. Look for upside targets at the contract high of $7.22 3⁄4 and then $7.50, with support at $6.70. SOYBEANS — Somewhat surprisingly, the USDA resurvey of acreage found more soybean acreage changes than corn acreage changes in the four states resurveyed. South Dakota saw the biggest change at minus 200,000 acres. Overall, planted acreage was down 200,000 acres and harvested acreage was

Movement of pork has slowed TEALE, from pg. 26A highs and an increase in cattle on feed, the likelihood of a further sustained rally would be questionable. Producers should take a cautious approach and protect inventories at these high levels. The hog market has moved above the $110.00 cwt. level basis the Midwest for the first time in history during the first few weeks of August. The hot weather reduced marketing of hogs and packers were forced to pay the higher prices to obtain the inventory needed to meet the current demand both domestic and export. As the August Futures contact expired on Aug. 12, the next month October contract was discount by

nearly $18.00 cwt. The anticipation is that hog numbers will increase as we move into the Fall and the hot temperatures are beginning to abate causing the concern that the live supply will be more than adequate to meet current demand. With this wide basis, the expectation has to be that it will narrow as we approach the month of October. The fact that the pork cutout is also at record highs, the movement of pork product has also slowed. The next few months in the hog market should be interesting as the Chinese pork purchase is completed will domestic demand fill the void in this floundering economy. Producers should be cognizant of market conditions and protect inventories as the market provides opportunities.

Markets to become more complex? men Reinhart wrote the book “This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Follies” in 2009. In their book they write, “Europe and the U.S. are not experiencing a typical recession or even a double-dip Great Recession... Rather the West is going through something much more profound: a second Great Contraction of growth, the first being the period after the Great Depression. It is a slow- or no-growth waltz that plays out not over months but over many years.” If Rogoff and Reinhart are correct, the markets will be watching many other factors than simply the fundamentals of supply and demand. The markets will only become more complex and volatility will be here for some time to come. Given this environment, we must stay focused on margin management and financial stewardship. We in grain production have the opportunity to continue to enjoy strong markets, yet larger forces can change the rules of the game.

NEHER, from pg. 26A that the reductions were already factored into the price. Yet, it appears that the market is focusing on larger economic issues at this time. We endured two weeks of political wrangling in Washington, D.C., over the debt ceiling debate. This, we were told, was to avoid catastrophic economic collapse. Then the rating agency, Standard and Poor’s downgraded the U.S. debt from AAA to AA+. This sent the stock markets into a week of 500-point trading days in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Just when we thought we had seen all of the volatility that the markets could stand, we watched London burn and endure four days of riots. The markets were not trading on the grain fundamentals of supply and demand reported by the USDA. The Harvard economist Kenneth Rogoff, with Car-

down 500,000 acres. Yield came in lower than the July estimates at 41.4 bu./acre, putting production at 3.056 billion bushels. Five states saw USDA yield estimates above their trend yields: Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee and Mississippi. Total usage was estimated on the August report at 3.146 billion bushels, implying a net drawdown in stocks over the marketing year. Exports saw the biggest cut for 2011-12, down 95 million bushels to 1.4 billion bushels. Chinese imports were held steady at 56.5 mmt, but exports from Brazil and Argentina were increased by a combined 3 mmt to offset the decline in U.S. exports. World usage was down less than 1 mmt, while ending stocks declined about 1 mmt. Weekly export sales were fairly routine this week at 238 thousand metric tons for old-crop and 350 tmt for new-crop. Weekly conditions improved by 1 point to 61 percent good/excellent. OUTLOOK: November soybeans were down 1 1⁄4 cents for the week. Prices had been weak early in the week, but recovered following the USDA production numbers. Soybeans are currently in the key reproductive stages, and as such may benefit more than corn from the cooler, wetter weather seen last week. The USDA stocks-to-use ratio of 4.9 percent gives very limited cushion for further production loss either here or in South America. November beans have been basically in a range of $13.00$14.00 since March. Those levels provide support and resistance on the current charts. Outside markets: Wheat rallied during the week, closing up 16 cents in Kansas City, 33 3⁄4 in Minneapolis and 23 1⁄2 in Chicago. Crude oil was down significantly, reacting to the poor economic outlook and the U.S. debt downgrade. Crude was down $1.50, the S&P 500 index was down 1.7 percent, and the U.S. dollar index was little changed.

Production came in at 12.9 billion bushels. Total usage back in July was estimated at 13.5 billion bushels, but that was lowered to 13.2 billion bushels in August. Exports and feed use each saw 150 million bushel cuts. Chinese import demand for 2011-12 was left unchanged at 2 million metric tons, and total world import demand was dropped by about 1.5 mmt. Ethanol usage was trimmed by 50 million bushels. Ethanol usage at 5,100 mb is now projected to show just a 1.6 percent increase from 2010-11. Ending stocks dropped to 714 million bushels, and the stocks-to-use ratio to 5.4 percent. The record low ratio was in 1995-96 at 5.0 percent. World stocks showed a 1.1 mmt decline on the August report, but the stocks-to-use ratio held steady at a multi-year low of 13.2 percent. World production was lowered by about 12 mmt due entirely to the cut in U.S. production. World usage was reduced by about 7 mmt, but about 70 percent of that reduction was due to the cuts to U.S. usage. The remainder

Financial crisis delivers indirect blow to ag While the uncertainty on Wall Street directly affects the financial sector, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says it’s the indirect consequences coupled with weather concerns that has the agriculture industry on edge. Agriculture, with the exception of livestock, has been more resistant to recession, said Mike Boehlje. Much of the demand for U.S. grain comes from the mandated use of ethanol and in exports, which have recovered more quickly in recent years than has domestic demand. “The Chinese economy is growing, and that has increased demand for U.S. grains, especially soybeans,” he said. “We’ve also had short supply problems with grains. “Going forward, the key concerns for agriculture are less in the capital markets and more in what the U.S. debt problems might do to put us in a recession. The Chinese economy also is important because should it take a hit, export demand would decrease.” Should the United States end up in a “double-dip” recession, Boehlje said, livestock producers could potentially face higher feed costs, reduced domestic demand and lower export demand. “A situation like that certainly has the potential to take the profitability out of livestock production,” he said. One bright spot is that when the markets become unstable, investors are more likely to put their

money into real assets rather than financial assets. Real assets include agricultural commodities, metals and land. Boehlje also said because now is not the time grain farmers borrow, they’re unlikely to see much increase in interest rates. However, livestock producers could see higher rates if they have to borrow to buy feed. While farmers should not ignore the capital markets, Boehlje said the current financial turmoil’s effects are more indirect and focus mostly on demand adjustments. “When there is long-term instability there tends to be a flight to real assets,” Boehlje said. “People move away from financial assets. Agriculture is a real asset industry, so that does offer some protection.” Weather, however, could do more harm than the financial crisis. Grain farmers could take the hardest hit with yield losses from this year’s extreme weather. It also could cause financial problems for famers who forward-marketed crops that may not make it to harvest. For consumers, Boehlje said, oil prices have come down in the last few days and food price increases may slow down some. Although that may seem like positive news, it might not be. “An early response to the economic uncertainty has been a decrease in energy prices,” he said. “If we go into a double-dip recession, it could take some pres-

sure off of retail food prices, as well. But we certainly don’t want that to be the reason for a reduction in price pressures.” Despite all of the seemingly bad news, Boehlje said agriculture is still strong relative to other industries. “Other industries are downsizing, some even permanently,” he said. “Relatively speaking, agriculture is a good place to be.” ••• This article was submitted by the Purdue University Agricultural Communications Department.

New credit score disclosure rules New credit score disclosure rules issued by the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Trade Commission went into effect July 21. “The new rules require lenders to provide information about the consumer’s credit score if the lender has denied a credit application or has given less favorable terms because of the consumer’s credit score,” said Brenda Schmitt, ISU Extension Family Finance Specialist. If an application or request for credit is denied and the lender uses a credit report to help make the decision, the lender is required to provide an adverse action notice, to the applicant. This isn’t new and has been an industry requirement for many years. What is new is the lender is now required to tell the date the report was created, the name of the company that created the score, how the score ranks compared to the score of other consumers, the key negative factors that affected the score, and where to obtain a copy of their credit report. Credit reports and credit scores do affect credit applications and potential interest rates on loans. Inaccurate information in a credit report can have adverse consequences during the process of applying for a loan. For this reason, when seeking any sort of credit, review your credit report beforehand. If you find any inaccuracies, have them corrected before applying for credit so that you’ll stand a better chance of being approved at a lower rate. FICO scores are the credit scores most lenders use, with scores ranging from 300-850. A credit report on the other hand details your credit history such as types of credit used and if bills have been paid on time. Consumers can request a free annual copy of their credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion by calling (877) 322-8228 or go online at www.annualcreditreport.com. It’s important for consumers to check their credit reports annually to assure accurate information in the file which can affect the credit score. ••• This article was submitted by the Cerro Gordo County office of Iowa State University Extension in Mason City, Iowa.


Farmfest in Review: Future of agriculture spotlighted

MARKETING

This topic was further discussed at the forum “Keeping the Land Grant Mission Alive.” Bev Durgan, U of M Extension dean, was joined by some ag industry leaders to discuss why public ag research at universities is still relevant, the changing dynamics of Extension and outreach, and the significant role that commodity organizations and other private partners play in the research and outreach efforts of universities. Public funding for agricultural research and Extension outreach programs at land grant universities across the United States has been under fire for the past decade or longer. • An interesting forum, “Designing the Next Farm Bill — Shaping the Future of Rural America,” featured

some top-notch ag policy analysts. The common theme was the large federal budget deficit, and the likelihood of significant cuts to many popular U.S. Department of Agriculture farm programs. There was general agreement that the “direct payments” received by corn, soybean, wheat, cotton and rice producers will likely be cut, if not eliminated, in the next farm bill. Many farm organizations and commodity groups, including dairy and livestock producers, are willing to accept the reductions in direct payments, provided that federal programs for crop insurance, dairy support, disaster assistance and other “safety net” programs are maintained. Some observers also worry that there could be significant cuts to the popular Conservation Reserve Program and other federal conservation

Ag regulation, communication were among forum topics PROGRAMS, from pg. 29A programs. It was pointed out that USDA funding authorized under the farm bill only accounts for about 4 percent of the total federal budget, as well as the fact that food and nutrition programs utilize over three-fourths of the total USDA annual budget. It appears that avoiding major cuts to a variety of USDA programs will pose a significant challenge in the coming months and years, as Congress wrestles with making the necessary budget adjustments to deal with the federal budget deficit. • Regulation in the agriculture industry was the focus of two forums. A panel of agriculture leaders highlighted some of the challenges that farmers, especially livestock producers, face when trying to obtain permits and to meet federal, state and local regulations. The ag leaders also expressed concern for the future regarding potential regulations related to the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, transportation regulations, animal welfare issues, etc. Frederickson was joined by officials from several other state agencies who pledged to streamline the sometimes-cumbersome permitting process for small- to medium-sized farm operations in the state. The state officials also highlighted and

emphasized the importance of Minnesota’s agriculture industry, and the willingness to collaborate with ag industry leaders. The Clean Water Act, which is currently being reviewed by Congress and federal officials, could have far-reaching effects on future practices in production agriculture, affecting everything from tillage, to fertilizer and manure application, to ag drainage practices. Recent high-profile flooding events in the Mississippi and Missouri river basins, along with the growing hypoxia (“dead zone”) area in the Gulf of Mexico, have brought ag drainage and field runoff issues to the forefront. There has been considerable discussion and debate in recent months as to the role of agricultural practices relative to those issues, including whether or not further changes in practices and more regulation are needed for production agriculture. • The forum panel of “Finding a Common Message for Agriculture” represented several ag leaders from commodity groups and ag organizations, who pointed out the disconnect between food consumers and the farmers who produce the food. Many times this leads to a large number of misconceptions about production agriculture. The panel emphasized the need to work with

The panel also stressed the need for the various farm organizations, commodity groups and others to work together to tell the right message about the agriculture industry. The significant role of the internet and the social media were also highlighted as important ag communications tools for the future, especially to reach younger audiences. • As has become tradition, Farmfest concluded by recognizing more than 70 county “Farm Families of the Year.” It is always interesting to hear the wide-ranging and interesting backgrounds of these farm families and their farming businesses, to see the multi-generational aspect of these family farms, and to realize the tremendous amount of agricultural and community leadership that exists throughout the state. The backgrounds and accomplishments of these farm families demonstrate the diversity and dynamics of Minnesota’s agriculture industry. ••• Kent Thiesse is a government farm programs analyst and a vice president at MinnStar Bank in Lake Crystal, Minn.

One is still standing. That building served as the schoolhouse for District 13 in Artichoke Township of Big Stone County. District 13 was between the village of Correll and Artichoke Lake. Like many country schoolhouses, when District 13 closed it was used as the township hall. We learned all this from a lovely book, “Schoolhouses of Minnesota.” So, we headed to Artichoke Township to see this architectural curiosity. But why an octagonal schoolhouse? It seems that octagonal schoolhouses were locally common in the eastern U.S. as far back as 1721. According to one source, more than 100 of them were built between that time and the 1850s in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Some were also constructed in New York. The Quakers were apparently behind the eightsided schoolhouse movement. They argued that windows on seven sides of the building provided the best lighting for the students and teachers. The windows, which were high enough so students couldn’t be distracted by outside vistas, also saved on lighting oil. The Quakers also claimed that the buildings were easy to heat because heat from a centrally located stove easily reached everyone. These eastern schools had thick stone walls that held the heat in. The octagon shape also allowed teachers to be located in a way so that all students could easily be observed. There is no record of any octagonal schools being built after the middle of the 19th century. Mysteriously, the eight-sided Quaker schoolhouse design leapt across most of the eastern U.S. and landed in Minnesota’s western prairies in the 1890s. There, the community chose to build an octagonal schoolhouse from wood. The original schoolhouse had more windows than the building does now, apparently. Perhaps the cold prairie winds, the thin wooden walls, and the arrival of electric lighting, caused them to be boarded up. When we arrived in Artichoke Township we discovered that the schoolhouse had moved. A friendly neighbor said that vandalism had inspired township officials to move it to the county museum in Ortonville. The only octagonal building now in Artichoke Township is the gazebo in her garden. It was, she said, inspired by the schoolhouse. The Big Stone County Historical Society has done a wonderful job of caring for, and restoring, the building inside and out. It is well worth visiting.

Dairy industry’s always greener on the other side

longer life also so maintenance is much less an issue and that’s important when you’re milking 24 hours each day,” VanderWal said. Virtually all cows are on a threetimes-a-day schedule; the exceptions being newly freshened animals and treated cows. About 1,000 cows are milked 3X daily at this facility plus they have another 260 cows at a nearby rented facility. Parlor space at Newalta provides for a future doubling, i.e., 40 cows each side versus the current 20 cows. “We don’t know what will be the extent of future expansion, perhaps 500 cows each time until we’re at about 2,000 cows for this setup.” Crop acres total about 800 at the new site plus 250 acres family owned plus additional crop acres purchased from neighbors. This fall about 750 acres of corn will be harvested, mostly

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer A Dutch family with 15 years dairy farming in Canada before moving to the Pipestone area two years ago perhaps speaks for many dairy farmers. John VanderWal said, “it doesn’t matter if you dairy in Canada or America. We have to be open to the public. It’s just part of being a dairy farmer. In our handling of cows, we always have to think of the possibility that someone is looking over our shoulders, perhaps with a video camera in hand. That’s just the reality of being in the milking business these days.” VanderWal, along with his wife, Berlinda, and five children operate Newalta Dairy, a 1,200-cow operation a few miles southwest of Pipestone. VanderWal, who was 26 when he left Holland for Canada, said Canadian dairy farmers operate with a “supplymanagement” system which gives each producer a yearly milk allotment figure and a guaranteed milk price. “But when the Canadian dairy farmers see that milk prices are higher in America they ask ‘What in the world are we doing with a system like this where our milk prices stay the same?’ However I’ve heard American dairy farmers when milk prices are in the $10 category ask ‘Why don’t we have a system like Canada with stable milk prices regardless?’ So yes, it’s always greener on the other side.” Because Newalta Dairy is virtually brand new, technology abounds throughout this facility. Somewhat unique is a “basement” level directly beneath the twin, 20-cow milking parlor which houses all the pulsation equipment that powers the milking units. “The principal of a basement system is to keep your pulsation equipment cleaner and drier plus it’s much easier to service. Cleaner equipment means

Tankers wait to haul away product from Newalta Dairy, a 1,200-cow operation a few miles southwest of Pipestone. Rolling herd average is now about 27,000 pounds milk per cow and trending upwards, partly assisted by the addition of bovine somatotropin treatments. “If I can get up to 90 pounds per day, then I am pleased. Maybe this winter we might see a couple more pounds,” said operator John VanderWal.

Genetics heart of system GREENER, from pg. 1B as silage but also grain. VanderWal is positive about the future of the dairy industry, but he’s also a realist saying “we probably will see $12 to $13 milk again. Our milk price today is so strong because of exports but if the American dollar gets stronger, then we start losing our export advantage.” Aware of continually increasing costs of milk production, especially in feeds, VanderWal is matter of fact, “whether milk prices are high, or low shouldn’t affect how you feed your cows unless you can handle the risk of significant production shifts. Sure, some dairy farmers try to cheapen up their rations when feed costs are up but they lost milk. That last 10 pounds of milk each cow provides each day pays for a big portion of your total feed bill. You’ve got to do what’s best for your cows and your production goals.” He and his wife visited several dairy farms across America before designing Newalta Dairy. Natural-ventilated barns predominated so that was their choice, plus easy water access, an insulated roof, fans and a water-sprinkler system. Rolling herd average is now about 27,000 pounds milk per cow and trending upwards, partly assisted by the addition of bovine somatotropin treatments. “If I can get up to 90 pounds per day, then I am pleased. Maybe this winter we might see a couple more pounds.” Genetics, the virtual heart of any livestock production system, gets top billing at Newalta Dairy. They use only top-scoring bulls from the major artificial insemination companies and they periodically switch semen sources to maintain genetic diversity. “Yes, we want to breed cows for

longevity. But I think we need to look at conformation too, like wider rumps so they stand wider on their feet and carry their udders higher and wider and longer to the front. We have a long ways to go in my opinion and can accomplish this within the Holstein breed. We don’t need to cross breed. In our operation I see the taller, narrower animals on slippery floors having more troubles. We don’t yet have sand bedding. I can see a little sand makes for better footing.” VanderWal makes family life important both for his own family, and his employees. But he puts the emphasis on “quality time” suggesting that it doesn’t have to be five hours of family time from 5 to 10 p.m. Even just a halfhour of the right kind of family time counts as much or more. His children — Ian, 11, AmyJo, 14, Bernice, 17, Alisha, 18 and Jennifer, 20 — each have tasks in the operation of Newalta Dairy. “I never say ‘you’ve got to stay home because you’ve got some work.’ If they’ve got something at school, or church, or wherever I want them to go,” he said. Meanwhile, a thorny issue is that VanderWal family members have not yet been granted their individual U.S. citizenship. VanderWal indicated that the legal process is slow, cumbersome and, at times, difficult. His family attorney continually works toward resolving this challenge. Newalta Dairy was a July 11 stop for a busload of dietitians, nutritionists and health consultants participating in a Beef/Dairy Culinary Workshop and Farm Tour sponsored by the Minnesota Beef Council. Colleen Zenk, director of Nutrition & Consumer Information for the MBC, hosted the morning workshop at a Worthington, Minn., HyVee Store. Beef and dairy stops were the afternoon schedule for this group.


Labor, desire, talent determine dairy operation size prices at the dairy counter soon temper dairy purchases?” Timms said what it takes to succeed in any business, dairy farming included, is the quality of people around you. People know that in the dairy business you are producing a high-quality product and that also means hiring high-quality people. Timms acknowledges that greenhouse gas is becoming an issue in cow numbers depending upon locality.

“If dairying is a piece of this issue it needs to be more clearly identified compared to the natural cycle,” he said. “Can dairy management strategies be changed enough to make a difference? We’ve done national studies identifying the carbon footprint of dairying. We have a commitment to reduce that footprint whether it’s a change in the crops being raised; changing the feedstocks of dairy herds and, of course, the handling of dairy manure.”

This column was written for the marketing week ending Aug. 12. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reduced its 2011 milk production forecast for the first time since April, despite rising cow numbers. Its July World Agricultural MIELKE MARKET Supply and Demand Estimates WEEKLY report says “although the July Cattle report indicates that By Lee Mielke producers are holding relatively large numbers of dairy replacement heifers which supports a higher forecast dairy herd, recent hot, humid weather and relatively high priced feed may constrain the growth in milk per cow.” The report predicts 2011 milk output to hit 195.6 billion pounds, down 100 million pounds from the July estimate. The 2012 forecast is for 198.8 billion, unchanged from a month ago, but above 2011. This reflects a larger herd in the first part of 2012 but slightly slower growth in milk per cow. Commercial exports for 2011 were forecast higher on the strength of butterfat. Imports were lowered reflecting less cheese and milk proteins. Trade forecasts for 2012 were unchanged. Cheese, butter and whey prices were forecast higher for 2011 but nonfat dry milk was forecast lower. Tighter milk supplies are expected to support higher product prices, according to the USDA, but softening international prices will likely weigh on U.S. NDM markets. The Class III price forecast was raised based on higher forecast cheese and whey prices, but lower forecast NDM prices will outweigh higher butter prices so the Class IV price forecast was reduced. Look for the Class III price to average $18.40 to $18.60 per hundredweight, up from $18 to $18.30 expected in last month’s report. The 2012 average was projected to range $16.10 to $17.10, up a dime from a month ago. The 2010 average was $14.41 and an anemic $11.36 in 2009. The 2011 Class IV price is expected to range $19.05 to $19.35, down from last month’s $19.15 to $19.55. The 2012 average was put at $16.45 to $17.55, down a nickel from last month and compares to $15.09 in 2010 and $10.89 in 2009. NFDM prices for 2012 were forecast lower on expected weaker early-year demand but cheese prices were forecast slightly higher. Forecast butter and whey prices were unchanged from last month. ■ Dairy Profit Weekly editor Dave Natzke detailed the feed side of things in Friday’s DairyLine.

It warned that “the U.S. economy continues to barely grow, and consumer confidence is not much higher than it was at the depth of the recession. The concern about cheese demand is healthy for the industry; it is causing both sides to

become cautious.” Jerry Dryer, editor of the Dairy and Food Market Analyst, sees things a little differently. He wrote in his Aug. 5 issue, “some folks continue to look for a sizable downward correction in the cheese price, but it just doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Almost all of the manufacturers and distributors/brokers I talked to this week reported good orders.” See MIELKE, pg. 6B

Increased milk production in those countries can mean lower international dairy prices, however California’s Milk Producers Council’s Aug. 5 newsletter says “global demand, led by China, Russia, India and several Southeast Asian nations is still being projected to absorb those increases and more.” ■ Back on the home front, effects from Standard & Poor’s downgrade of U.S. debt, may not have a direct effect on dairy, according to eDairy economist Bill Brooks in their Aug. 8 Executive Edition. He said, “it takes a while for development like that to filter through, to see how it impacts demand and production.” To become a subscriber of eDairy’s Executive Edition and receive twice daily insights on the markets, call (800) 231-3089. Monday’s downgrades on Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, farm lenders and similar entities prompted major equity indexes to drop. The University of Wisconsin’s Brian Gould warned in Tuesday’s DairyLine that, “when the quality of the bonds goes down the cost of attracting money for those bonds has to go up because they’re viewed as more risky. ... If that holds true then those short-term and medium- and long-term loan costs could go up for the ag sector.” He added that the markets “aren’t reacting as we would have thought in terms of significant increases in those interest rates but it’s a wait-and-see because we’ve never been in this state before.” Gould also called on producers to “look at both sides of the coin.” The industry is seeing volatility because of fluctuation in the grain prices, he said, and that affects the revenue and the cost side. When looking at the relative volatility of feed versus the Class III milk price since 2006, feed markets have been just about as volatile in terms of month-to-month variability, Gould said. Gould’s analysis includes a series of 16 percent dairy rations and how it varied relative to the Class III price since the BFP formula in 1995. He said, “between 2000 and 2005 we did have relatively stable feed prices and we didn’t need to be concerned about margins, all we had to do is look at the milk price. But, since 2006, the volatility measures that I’ve looked at are about equal with respect to the 16 percent dairy ration that I put together versus the Class III milk price so again that implies that you need to look at both the revenue side and the feed side

MIELKE, from pg. 4B tion estimate compared to a month ago. The corn harvest is now forecast at 12.9 billion bushels, up 4 percent from 2010, but down 4 percent from last month’s forecast. With the lowered forecast, the USDA raised the seasonaverage projected mid-range price for corn to $6.70 per bushel. The 2011 soybean harvest forecast was downgraded slightly from a month ago, to 3.1 billion bushels, down 8 percent from last year. With smaller supplies, season-average prices were raised 3 to 4 percent, to a projected mid-range of $13.50/bu., and $370 per ton for soybean meal, Natzke said. Production of the other major dairy feedstuffs — dry alfalfa and other hay — was also lower. The alfalfa hay harvest forecast was lowered 4 percent from a year ago and the harvest of other hay was forecast down 14 percent from last year. “The news isn’t good for farmers already stressed by record-high hay prices this summer,” Natzke said. ■ Cooler weather in the Midwest has reduced stress on animals and farmers, however milk production is not likely to rebound to previous levels real soon. The extreme heat and humidity that covered most of the United States brought declines of 10 to 30 percent, according to the USDA, with the exceptions of California, Utah, Idaho and the Pacific Northwest. Much of Texas remains in the oven, with several cities about to shatter records set in the heat wave of 1980. ■ Class I demand has increased in the Southeast and in some urban areas where schools have or are about to start their fall terms. Manufacturing schedules are lighter in the Central and Eastern regions due to the reduced milk supply with some plant managers concerned over the future available milk supplies. ■ Internationally, the winter season continues to make its presence known with cold temperatures and snow in New Zealand while wet in Australia. Producers and handlers remain optimistic about the upcoming production year. Although too early to tell, milk producers and handlers in New Zealand project a 3 to 5 percent increase with Australian estimates near 1 to 2 percent. The new season resumes in four to six weeks and a few weeks later for Australia.

The 2011 average now stands at $20.64 for the North and $20.91 for the South, up from $16.46 and $16.74 a year ago. The September Federal order Class I base price is announced by the USDA on Aug. 19. Updating the Chicago Mercantile Exchange cash dairy markets, block cheese closed the second Friday of August at $2.0250/lb., down 10.75 cents on the week, but still 40.5 cents above a year ago. Barrel dropped to $2.07 but regained a penny Friday to close at $2.08, down a nickel and a half on the week, 49.5 above a year ago and 5.5 cents above the blocks. Only eight cars of block and five of barrel traded hands on the week. The National Agricultural Statistics Service-surveyed U.S. average block price inched a half-cent higher, to $2.1116, while the barrels averaged $2.1554, up 2.1 cents. Butter rallied some on Friday as well after slipping to $2.0425 on Thursday. It closed Friday at $2.0725, up 3 cents on the day, down 3 cents on the week, but still 15.5 cents a year ago. Ten cars were sold on the week. NASS butter averaged $2.0812, up 7.3 cents. NASS powder averaged $1.5726, down 1.1 cent, and dry whey averaged 56.31 cents, up 0.4 cent. ■ Looking “Back to the futures,” the federal order Class III contract’s average for the last half of 2011 was $18.34/cwt. on June 10 and 17; $18.21 on June 24; $18.19 on July 1; $18.54 on July 8; $19.29 on July 15; $19.75 on July 22; $19.92 on July 29; $19.75 on Aug. 5, but was looking like something around $19.12 late morning Aug. 12. ■ In dairy politics, the National Family Farm Coalition gave a thumbs-down to National Milk Producers Federation’s Foundation for the Future dairy policy proposal saying it has “serious potential to further drive raw milk prices down and also marginalize nearly 20 percent of the nation’s remaining dairy farmers who cannot participate in an insurancebased program due to religious beliefs.” An NFFC press release said “in just the last four years, close to 20 percent of this nation’s dairy farms have closed their doors for good, wreaking havoc on rural families and economies,” adding that “crisis hotlines have been at record levels as have the level of farm bankruptcies and auctions, all signaling that something is seriously wrong,” said Ben Burkett, NFFC president. “Dairy farmers receive unfair prices

for their milk that come nowhere close to covering their cost of production,” the press release said, and called for “a new pricing system that requires the processors and/or marketers to pay a fair price for the milk they purchase,” Wisconsin farmer Paul Rozwadowski said. “The Federal Milk Market Improvement Act of 2011 would enable farmers to earn a decent living without being dependent on a government subsidy because milk buyers would pay a fair price,” he said. The NFFC has called on lawmakers to co-sponsor the legislation “before it is too late.” MPC’s Rob Vandenheuvel remains adamantly behind National Milk’s FFTF, saying “independent thinking has been a luxury the dairy industry enjoys and often benefits from. But every once in awhile, a time comes for dairy farmers from coast-to-coast to unite behind a common plan. That time is now with FFTF.” Vandenheuvel’s perspective is featured in the MPC’s newsletter and appears in the September editions of Western DairyBusiness and EasternDairyBusiness. Gary Genske, certified public accountant, managing partner with Genske, Mulder & Co. and a member of the National Dairy Producers Organization board, asks producers to compare the FFTF with one developed by the NDPO, called the “Dairy Industry Stabilization and Sustainability Act of 2011.” Genske also shares his comments in an editorial in Western DairyBusiness. The FFTF got a thumbs-down from Jim Eichstadt, a Wisconsin-based dairy consultant and former general manager of the Farmers Union Milk Marketing Cooperative (now Family Dairies USA). Eichstadt urged supporters of the FFTF to be “skeptical,” charging that the NMPF is “not working for the best interest of grassroots dairy producers.” The NMPF maintains that its proposal is national in scope and applies equally to all producers, according to an Aug. 11 press release. Details are posted at www.futurefordairy.com. Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, announced this week that he will be a cosponsor of the draft legislation that includes elements of the FFTF. ••• Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.
