Your choice: Bumpy ambulance or smooth hearse? MINDS, from pg. 2A was nearby. I stopped and the price for this drug was about $75.” I’m sharing this for the simple fact that if your life has moved into the prescription drug era it might be worthwhile to check with more than one provider when it comes to filling your particular prescription. Just maybe the “big name” providers aren’t your low cost providers. For my friend, needless to say, his local drug store is now his No. 1 provider. Unfortunately doctors aren’t aware of these remarkable disparities in prescription medicine costs. Even if they were, professional ethics and potential litigation issues make it difficult for doctors to suggest providers of prescription medicine. So my advice is simply don’t assume the big-name stores are the best buy when it comes to filling a medical prescription. Our “socialized medicine” transition that seems to be sweeping across America may have some initial financial appeal but huge scams within the American drug industry also seem to be occurring. We know all too well who ultimately pays the bill. A humorous note This particular anecdote originated with my other brother-in-law, long retired from farming and now enjoying “fairway privileges” at his local golf course. Which means he and his cronies can show up just about any time (except Ladies Day) with almost immediate access to their tee box. That is, when Check Glyphosate Price Delivered Direct To Your Farm!

health permits. He recently gave his dear bride a bit of a challenge when he mentioned at bedtime some significant discomfort in his upper chest. Four years ago he had major surgery replacing a faulty heart valve so little wonder his wife was immediately alarmed. They quickly huddled. It would take 15 to 20 minutes for the ambulance to get to their farm. She could drive him to the local hospital quicker, so she did. At the hospital the immediate diagnosis was ambulance delivery to a Sioux Falls hospital for a possible heart stent procedure. I’ve always had some regard (and suspicion) about this particular brother-in-law’s weird sense of humor. For example, in describing his ambulance trip on Highway 23 from Marshall, Minn., to Sioux Falls, S.D., he wondered if, when the local ambulance crew purchased their ambulance, they first measured the wheelbase to match it up against the highway joints. He ventured, “I think they must have because as the ambulance sped to Sioux Falls with me strapped tightly onto a gurney, which I’m certain had less than one inch of padding, I felt every Highway 23 joint that entire 100-mile jaunt. And Highway 23 won’t win any blue ribbons for being smooth and shock-free, especially in an ambulance speeding 75 mph and faster.” During his unexpected ambulance journey, his

mind apparently got restless. “As the ambulance sped down the highway,” he said, “I thought, how strange — here I am potentially facing some serious heart challenges and my body is feeling every whack of this highway. But if I were dead and being transported by a hearse, I’d be in a velvety, cushion-lined container inside an $80,000 Cadillac with zero highway noise and a suspension system so perfect the highway would be a virtual pillow.” Well, nice to have a brother-in-law with a sense of humor, weird as it may be. Yep, he had a stent inserted and was back home the next day. In fact, a day later he was assisting the Belview Legion grilling hamburgers during September Sod Days. As you might suspect, he doesn’t always listen to advice from his doctor either. King of crops On a different note, my hometown of Olivia, Minn., recently reinforced its claim as the Corn Capital of Minnesota. The Bird Island-Olivia-Lake LillianDanube FFA chapter cut corn stalks (courtesy of Mycogen Seed) and set up corn shocks in front of 18 downtown business establishments. One of Minnesota’s state FFA officers was visiting the BOLD chapter so he, too, got involved in making Olivia look just a bit more corny. My real home town of Northwood, Iowa, started the same “fall dress-up” campaign a few years back and merchants really get into it with pumpkins, ribbons, strings of beads, even miniature Christmas lights decorating each corn shock. Indeed, it’s quite a sight and what better way to show why corn is indeed the King of Crops. A closing thought suggests we once again be thankful to our Lord for a decent and amazingly rapid harvest. Fall tillage, too, has suddenly ramped up. Unfortunately community fire trucks have been chasing combine fires far too often. ••• Dick Hagen is staff writer of The Land.

Letter: Most townships more advanced Letter: America To the Editor: So much of what you write in this recent article is so true. Township government is “American government at its best” I am appalled, however, when I read that the treasurer keeps financial records in long hand. There is a highly efficient statewide computer program called CTAS that provides monthly financial reporting, can print checks including payroll, set up a budget and provide numerous reports to aid in making good financial decisions. I hope that readers are not misled to think most townships operate that way because that is not true. Moreover, the Minnesota Association of Townships provides regular training workshops to keep clerks, treasurers and board members up-to-date on CTAS financial reporting.

Editor’s note: The Land correspondents Tim King and Jan King’s Sept. 16 Back Roads story “Government at its best” — online at http://bit.ly/theland2011-0916 (go to Page 32A) — instigated some talk on the topic of local government, as seen by these Letters to the Editor. Leslie Township obviously has not taken advantage of that. I would hope they would consider using it soon. Colleen Jackson Chairman Rapidan Township, Blue Earth County, Minn.

Letter: Townships don’t need state aid To the Editor: In response to comments concerning township governments (Printed above. -Ed.) it is unfortunate a township officer would be appalled at another township doing things their own way. For a township officer to think local government needs the state

to do its bookwork, etc., is ridiculous. In a way, her letter describes how the governments of this state and nation are in the financial mess which we are in. It is unfortunate that people think state government is the answer. To me, it is quite rewarding to

attend the meetings (as a citizen) and observe township business in its entirety, without relying on “Big Brother.” If needed, I will purchase a box of ink pens and donate to the township. Roger Dukowitz Browerville, Minn.

a republic, not democracy To the Editor: With interest I read the Back Roads story on Leslie Township Hall meetings. I live in rural America and know about town hall meetings, a basic unit of government. The writer of the story quoted Dennis Miller as saying “that township government is truly democratic” and is “grassroots democracy.” I have a question: When they start their meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, do they say “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the ‘democracy’ for which it stands”? I bet they say “Republic.” If government at its best is grassroots democracy, then we are in trouble. Our founding fathers gave us a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. The word democracy is not in the Constitution. Government at its best is a Constitutional Republic, rule by law, not a majority rule as in a democracy. Tom Sullivan Granada, Minn.

that will be fully paid by our grandchildren. That the three free trade deals will sail unquestioned through Congress in 15 minutes and the China currency deal won’t make it out of Congress in 15 years is more proof of our democracy’s growing dysfunction. People come second to profit. Only one major ag leader, Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, questioned the need for the trade deals and the principles of our soon-to-be biz partners. While “agriculture has been one of the few sectors (in the U.S. economy with) … a trade surplus,” Johnson noted Oct. 3, it also has had “a net trade deficit in seven of the past eight years with countries that the U.S. has trade agreements.” That red bottom line is written in blood for some of the pending trade partners. In Columbia, for example, Johnson added, more than 2,800 trade unionists have been murdered since 1986; “51 in 2010 alone.” So that’s our business plan; become partners with folks we wouldn’t share a cup of coffee with in the hope — a vain hope, according to the record — of selling them a bushel of corn or a pound of ribs?

Commentary: RFS legislation sells farmers, public short The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association disagrees with legislation introduced in Congress Oct. 5 that attempts to reduce the Renewable Fuels Standard based on arbitrary thresholds. “This bill is poor public policy that sells farmers and the public short, and we hope it goes nowhere in Congress,” said MSGA President Kurt Krueger, a Rothsay, Minn., farmer. “Farmers are proud of the contribution we are making to our nation’s energy independence by producing corn and soybeans for the nation’s growing renewable

fuels industry. We are giving consumers an alternative to petroleum, while continuing to meet domestic and international demand for food and livestock feed. Farmers have the technology and the will to be reliable suppliers of quality crops for all of our customers — food companies, livestock producers, international buyers and the American renewable fuels industry.” The bill that has many farmers, as well as the nation’s renewable fuels industry, upset was introduced by Reps.

Ray Winter uses his new mechanical harvester to pick grapes at his Indian Island Winery and Vineyards.

By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press NEW ULM, Minn.— Georg and Paula Marti and their family have spent the past month making daily visits to their vineyard and keeping in touch with 20 other Minnesota growers who provide grapes for their Morgan Creek Vineyards near New Ulm, Minn. “It’s a busy time. The grapes have to be picked just at the right time,” said Paula Marti. “The crush crews will work until early October. Crushing 100,000 pounds of fruit is exhausting.” The same scene is taking place near Janesville, where Ray and Lisa Winter and their family have been harvesting and producing wine at Indian Island Winery and Vineyard. And near Kasota, Kent Schwickert’s crew is harvesting the first grapes and making the first wines at the Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery, which opens next spring. The three wineries and several new vineyards being started across the region are part of a burgeoning wine industry that is transforming tourism and entertainment offerings and bringing a new type of agriculture to corn and soybean country. The three wineries will produce more than 100,000 bottles of wine combined. For all the rapid growth in the vineyard and winery industry, it’s still in its infancy in southern Minnesota and the state.

INSULATE

“We don’t see a saturation point. Less than 2 percent of the wine consumed in Minnesota is made in Minnesota,” said Ron Barnes, president of the Minnesota Grape Growers Association. “There’s really a huge potential for becoming a much bigger industry.” Winery trails “We will really be a mecca for southern Minnesota for those who like doing wine tours, wine tastings and seeing that segment of the ag industry,” said Anna Thill, head of the Greater Mankato (Minn.) Convention and Visitors Bureau. A survey of visitors to Mankato this year found that 6 percent said they visited a winery while they were here. “But when you asked people what they’d like to do if they returned here, that jumped to 35 percent who said they’d like to visit a winery,” Thill said. She envisions more formal tours to area wineries, including bus tours. “I think Mankato will be the hub, where most people stay with the spokes going out to the different wineries.” Tourists haven’t waited for formal tours to be put together. “We already get a lot of people from the Cities just coming down on their own,” Ray Winter said. “If there were tours available, they’d love to do it because they don’t have to drive.” See VINEYARDS, pg. 13A

VINEYARDS, from pg. 12A The key to growing tourism and a successful winemaking industry, say winery owners, is maintaining quality. “Minnesota is getting some reputation in the wine industry,” Schwickert said. “These cold-hardy grapes the University of Minnesota is developing are getting attention from Minnesota all the way to New York. “You put good winemakers in front of good fruit, you’ll get a reputation.” When the Martis began their vineyard and winery in the early ’90s — just the fifth winery in the state at the time — they did it with an eye toward tourism and education. “We have one of the most beautiful agriculture landscapes in the state in this area, and we haven’t marketed that enough. “There’s just tons of future on showcasing the wine and food industry right here on the Bend of the River,” Paula Marti said. Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery Drew Horton opens the plug on an oak barrel and invites a visitor to sniff. “That’s French oak. Now smell this one, it’s Hungarian oak.” The wood scents are slightly different — scents that will provide subtle differences in flavor when the 300-bottle barrels are filled with wine to age from four to 16 months.

First grapes, wine produced after three years VINEYARDS, from pg. 13A new oak produces a stronger flavor than the used barrels.” While French oak has long been used for blending wines, the winery also is using a variety of American oak barrels. A longtime wine connoisseur, Schwickert and some partners have spent the past few years building a vineyard and winery off Highway 22 near St. Peter, Minn., that will be open for business next spring. After three years, the 3,900 vines on seven acres of rolling hillside at Chankaska Creek are producing their first grapes and Horton is producing the first batches of wine. The young plants produce less than mature vineyards and a wet spring set production back from what was expected, Schwickert said. Their vineyard will cover about one-third of the wine production with grapes also purchased from other Minnesota vineyards and some from Washington and California. Chankaska Creek plans to initially produce nearly 40,000 bottles of wine — about what other area wineries make annually — and increase production in coming years. A new production facility was built and a retail building is being finished this fall, around the site of the former Country Pub dinner club. The winery is named for Chankaska Creek, which flows

Winter: Like any crop, better land makes better grapes big way two years ago when they constructed a large winery and retail store nearby on a hill that was once a summer hunting camp for Native Americans. The family has found many artifacts over the years, and the Indian theme flows through the artwork created for the wine bottle labels, on the menu (elk and buffalo burgers) and in the decor. The Indian Island wines have done well in competitions, including 12 medals won this year as well as winning the prestigious Governor’s Cup, a traveling trophy. “Business has been really good. Weather affects things on the weekends, but we built a big building so when the weather’s not good, we can still get 150 to 200 people inside,” Winter said.

The fair exhibit — which provides tasting and glasses of wines for sale — has been so popular, the State Fair made an unprecedented offer considering there is a long list of people hoping to get any piece of real estate inside the fairgrounds. “The Fair Board gave us the opportunity to buy a building there, which we are doing,” Marti said. The building, formerly the Epiphany Church Diner, is in a prime location and directly across from the Agriculture building. Indian Island Winery Ray Winter’s roots are in the vineyard business. He started a vineyard next to his farmhouse more than a decade ago and has been one of the go-to guys for those wanting to start their own vineyards. The vineyard, now more than 13 acres, produces about five tons of grapes per acre. The family also sells nursery stock to other growers. While vineyards are often planted in sandier soil, not black farmland, Winter planted his vineyards on his prime farmland. “We were worried about putting it on our best land, but I’m glad we did. Some disagree, but I think the better the land, the better they do. It’s like any crop, you have to feed your crop to get a quality crop.” While beginning in the vineyard business, the Winter family got into the winery side of the business in a

They still label themselves as a small family winery — producing about 36,000 bottles a year — but their impact has been large on the industry. They have a long list of awards for their wines; they produce private label wines for Fire Lake Grill in Minneapolis; they’ve provided mentoring to a number of start-ups; and they are investor/owners in the Minnesota State Fair wine exhibit, which for years has been housed in a wing of the Horticulture building.

U.S. agriculture has a new ‘power voice’ on its side By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Farmers are getting better at promoting their profession, both to U.S. food consumers and customers in foreign countries.

Yet today we have the safest food supply in the world, and also the most affordable,” Richter said. “Unfortunately consumers don’t want to hear about the science and the technology used by America’s farmers. Instead we have become an emotion and ‘opinion-based’ society. Sound bites juice up the consumer; facts and data are simply fluff.” Duane Alberts, Minnesota Farm Bureau vice president and Pine Island-area dairy farmer, added: “recognizing that our customers are No. 1 in providing for our livelihood needs to become more the focus of us farmers. We’re very good at producing, but our concerns should go beyond our farm gate because ultimately the customer is always right.” Julie Tesch, Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council execu-

tive director, mentioned the positive response the past two years generated by Ag Awareness Day on the U of M Minneapolis campus. “Today’s University students are genuinely interested in their food. And they seem to have a growing awareness of starvation and food shortages in various parts of the world. This seems to be sparking some interest in Minnesota agriculture. Yes, there is tremendous misunderstanding and ignorance about this business of farming. “That’s why we constantly remind our ag ed students, in fact all students on the St. Paul campus, the importance of being ‘teachers’ every day, not just during their working hours in the classroom. Sometimes the best ideas for teaching come from disagreements from other students.” Value-added industry State Sen.

over $16 billion in revenues this past year and a No. 6 ranking among all states. “This has more than doubled in the past eight years. We’re also now doing over $6 billion in agricultural exports to countries around the world. In fact, just the export value of Minnesota soybeans today equals the total value of the entire crop 10 years ago. “In our state legislature I like to emphasize our Triple E focus: exports, environment and energy. At the federal level, I’m of the opinion that the Environmental Protection Agency is causing undue consternation dictating what we should be doing without even asking.” Magnus feels the future of energy will be heavily tied to agriculture. “I look upon water as the ‘new oil’ of the Midwest because there’s little doubt in my mind that water more and more is becoming a limiting factor in much of our country’s production agriculture. “We’ve just simply have got to embrace technology. Our agriculture future is very bright filled with both great challenges and great opportunities.” Al Juhnke, aide to Sen. Al Franken and former chairman of the Minnesota House of Representatives agriculture committee, said, “it’s important that we keep reminding our people of the value of agriculture in this state. One of every five jobs in the entire state stems from agriculture. Minnesota is rich because of three tremendous industries: agriculture, timber and mining. Note that all three are products of the land. Our land is our greatest resource.

“In D.C. high on the agenda of Sen. Franken and many others is drafting of the next farm bill. We need to keep reminding others that the farm bill is less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the federal budget and 74 percent of our farm bill currently is dedicated to school lunch programs and other nutrition concerns. Only 18 percent of that total budget is earmarked for commodity programs, crop insurance and conservation. And that leaves a miserly 8 percent for research and rural development across America. Yet research is absolutely critical to the future of America and much of the world.” He noted that President Obama’s “Committee of 12” which by Dec. 13 is supposed to have the answer to the nation’s debt and revenue problems is mostly a committee of non-farm people. Don Baloun, Natural Resources Conservation Service state conservationist, pointed out that the NRCS is the only U.S. Department of Agriculture agency that works with private land owners saying the Environmental Quality Improvement Program continues to be a major success of farmers upgrading the overall efficiencies of their farming operations. Plus because of the growing popularity of locally produced foods, organic farming is no longer a niche market in Minnesota.

That’s nothing out of the ordinary, until you realize that he was 12 when he Neil Anderson got started. Now, Anderson is established in the Paynesville, Minn.,-area with a sixman crew. He used to farm part-time with his dad and uncle, as well as playing in a band in his earlier life. He grew up on a Polk County dairy farm near Glenwood, Minn., and credits his start in the building moving business to an uncle who did house maintenance work and also moved a few garages. “He’s a carpenter and a dry-wall guy.

He started driving tractor when he was 8. Going through high school, Anderson was frequently helping his uncle Ken Jorgenson move some buildings, usually old garages that Uncle Ken would pick up for $100, do some fixing up on them, and resell for quite a few more bucks. “So this was good experience for me. I was making a few bucks while in high school. My parents said that if I wanted to go to college, I had to earn the money.

The project leaders include North Point Health and Wellness Center physicians and the U of taged communities eat healthier, safer diets. M’s School of Public Health. The grants, which are for about $50,000 each, include: • Developing on-farm safe food handling practices for immigrant farmers in the Twin Cities who grow and sell fresh produce and traditional crops at local farmers markets. The project also includes training for farmers. The project is led by leaders from the Farmers Legal Action Group as well as the Association for the Advancement of Hmong Women in Minnesota, and U of M agricultural health and safety program leaders. • Assessing and creating a plan for a Native American-owned grocery store and deli in Lake Andes, South Dakota, on the Yankton reservation. Researchers will study the economic viability of a business focused on healthy food as well as determine how local agencies and community members can work together to promote healthy nutrition. Brave Heart Society, based on the reservation, and scientists from the U of M’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences and Medical School are the project leaders. • Creating an integrated Anishaabe curriculum at the intersections of culture, history, economics and health with native food practices, including gardening, farming and forestry. The project is led by leaders at the White Earth reservation in northern Minnesota and the University of Minnesota, Morris. New Curriculum models will be tested at the Morris campus in summer 2012. • Addressing the obesity epidemic in communities

He related that he soon had 50 to 60 names of people calling him asking about particular buildings to buy and move. After moving to Paynesville and buying a “fixer-up” house, he and his wife started attending an Assembly of God church in nearby Cold Spring. “I met some fantastic people at this church. I told them I was a musician with my own band plus I moved buildings. Soon these people were telling me of friends, or relatives who wanted a building moved. So just through this network of people that I met at church, my building business really

picked up momentum. “I thought to myself, ‘If God gives me the opportunity to bid a job, he’s certainly going to give me the wisdom of how to bid a job. And if I get the job, he’s certainly going to give me the means to do it,” Anderson said. That faith continues to work in his life. He said his first garage was 12feet by 20 feet and “it scared me to death. I moved it at night (less traffic to contend with); I hoped it wouldn’t fall off the trailer. This year we moved a 60-foot by 120-foot machine shed. That required 100-foot beams because this structure contained about three semi-loads of steel framing.” What’s the longest-distance move so far? About 330 miles for a cabin moved from Paynesville to Greenbush, Minn., (15 miles from the Canadian border).

Owned by a local doctor on a nearby lake, this cabin measured only 20-feet wide and 32-feet long. Anything over 16 feet wide requires a permit and that means being a licensed building mover. To get a license to move a building you have to also buy insurance to cover any potential damage claims, etc. Anderson still has all his band equipment of speakers, lighting, etc., and still does gather his musicians to do a few special events each year. A barn on his property houses all his musical gear. This fall a local church was using his barn for a special service. How’s the building-moving business? Perhaps the best appraisal is Anderson’s comment that he regularly turns down opportunities to move buildings. His best advertising vehicle these days is his own website: www.andersonbuildingmovers.com. “We get 60 to 70 hits a day, from all over Minnesota plus surrounding states,” he said.

According to Anderson, there were about 70 licensed building movers in Minnesota in 2002 and today about 50. Of those 50, he estimates only about 20 to 25 are capable of doing big projects. Currently about 50 percent of his work is agricultural buildings and because of the strong farm economy, he’s doing quite a few upgrading of older machine sheds. “Built in the 1960s, or ’70s with 12foot sidewalls, we’re jacking these sheds up to 16 feet or 18 feet to simply handle the much bigger equipment of today.” Can a job be too big? He simply said that he had never turned down a project because it is too big. His professional tactic on something that might be too big is to bid it high and take the turndown. He and wife, Ashlee, have twins, Prairie and Piper, 4 1/2 years old, Jorgen, 3, and Ryker, 1.

Expo. There have been record levels and there were even reports of some delays in pickups as plants struggled to process the milk, he said. “Buyers look at that and don’t have a sense of panic that they need to buy as aggressively,” he said, adding there’s concern over the global financial situation. “People don’t want to carry a lot of inventory now; they don’t want to take the risk so that causes a little bit of push back on the buying side as well.” I’ll report more on U.S. dairy exports next week from our interview at the Expo with Margaret Speich of the U.S. Dairy Export Council. Levitt also reported in his DDR that massive volumes of milk went into butter/powder in August. Butter production hit 133 million pounds, down 1.6 percent from July, but a whopping 31 percent above a year ago, according to the USDA’s latest Dairy Products report. Year-to-date output is up 16.1 percent. Nonfat dry milk and SMP amounted to 152.1 million pounds, up 13.1 percent from a year ago. However, demand from domestic and overseas customers has prevented powder inventories from building, according to the DDR. American-type cheese production totaled 347 million pounds, down 0.9 percent from July, and 1 percent below a year ago. Italian-type cheese totaled 364 million pounds, up 0.6 percent from July, but 0.2 percent below a year ago. Total cheese output amounted to 868 million pounds, up 1.5 percent from July, but 0.3 percent below August 2010. ■ Pricewise, California’s September 4b cheese milk price was announced at $16.33 per hundredweight, down $2.27 from August but 85 cents above September 2010, and $2.74 below the comparable federal order Class III price. The 4a butter-powder price is $19.29, down 94 cents from August, and $2.68 above a year ago. The prices reflect changes made to the pricing formulas as a result of the June 30-July 1 hearing, according to the DDR, which said the new formulas added 40 cents to the 4b price, but removed 16 cents from the 4a price. Milk production is lower in Florida and mostly steady to occasionally higher through the rest of the country, according the USDA’s weekly update. Class I interest is fairly steady though some bottlers anticipate retail promotions may be more widespread in October due to lower Class I prices. Seasonal increases in the butterfat

test and the higher Class I use with schools in session generated larger cream volumes. Cream interest is lighter and most offerings are heading to churns or cream cheese as ice cream production is mostly lighter seasonally and other Class II product interest is mainly steady. ■ Milk production in Western Europe is maintaining a level that is higher than last year at this time. Many milk handlers and producers attribute the extended production season to favorable weather for early fall. Reports indicate that milk production for the first seven months of 2011 was up 2.2 percent from the comparable months in 2010, although during the period of April to July, milk output was only up 1.8 percent. Milk production in the Oceania region continues to increase seasonally. The New Zealand season got off to a strong start and indications are that milk volumes are running heavier than last year at this time. Milk producers and handlers are stating that the midAugust snowstorm that blanketed much of New Zealand had limited negative impact on the development or start of the new season. Australian milk volumes are increasing on a steady basis and milk output is projected to peak by the later part of October, according to the USDA. ■ In politics, the International Dairy Foods Association launched a television and print campaign to educate consumers about what it calls “the negative economic impact of the Federal Milk Marketing Order system, a set of regulations that gives the federal government control over setting milk prices.” “It’s time consumers learned that the price of their milk is being artificially inflated by a maze of government regulations,” said Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO. “Our campaign is about encouraging consumers to tell big government to get out of their milk.” The commercial, which calls for the elimination of the current pricing system, shows a tiny government bureaucrat enjoying a swim in a glass of milk, much to the dismay of the woman about to drink it. The voiceover states: “It seems like the government is everywhere these days, including in your milk.” An IDFA press release said “In 1937, the federal government created a huge bureaucracy to establish and enforce milk prices. This maze of regulations See MIELKE, pg. 25A

MIELKE, from pg. 24A and government red tape still exists and it’s costing you every time you buy milk for your family. Don’t you think it’s time for big government to get out of your milk?” Details are posted at www.outofmymilk.com. The IDFA also praised legislation submitted by President Obama that would allow for implementation of the pending free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama and urged Congress to pass the agreements quickly. “We’re pleased the administration recognized the extreme importance of these trade agreements to the U.S. economy, and we now urge swift passage in Congress,” Tipton said. “The pact with South Korea is particularly important because it would reduce tariffs and expand market opportunities in a high-value market and add 10,000 or more additional U.S. jobs throughout the dairy supply chain.” South Korea is the U.S. sixth-largest dairy export market, representing $145 million in exports year to date, according to the IDFA, and nearly double the value of exports during the same time period last year. U.S. International Trade Commission estimates say full implementation of the agreement with South Korea would increase U.S. dairy exports by as much as $336 million a year and the Panama and Colombia agreements are expected to produce gains of an additional $25 million each in exports per year. ■ Meanwhile, Sen. Dick Lugar, R-Ind., introduced a farm bill proposal this week that includes dairy policy reforms advocated by the National Milk Producers Federation. Lugar, a former chairman of the Senate ag committee, and Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., a freshman member of the House ag committee, have jointly introduced a bill they call the Rural Economic Farm and Ranch Sustainability and Hunger Act. The bill would reduce farm program spending by $16 billion, and save a total of $40 billion compared to current policy, according to an NMPF press release. The legislation includes the key elements of the Dairy Security Act of 2011, which was introduced in the House as HR 3062 by Reps. Collin Peterson, DMinn., and Mike Simpson, R-Ind., and is modeled after reforms first proposed by the NMPF. ••• Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

Cookbook brings flavors of Spain to your kitchen By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent Did you know the CIA is highly interested in your kitchen? Not the CIA of Washington, D.C., and Hollywood. The Culinary Institute of America brings world cuisine to these American shores with titles such as “Spain and the World Table,” a coffee-table-worthy cookbook with recipes an average Joe can actually aspire to. Its big, bold photographs contrast nicely with the simplicity of the ingredients and instructions. If you love garlic, olive oil and Mediterranean spices, this book’s for you. Get the “exotic” flavors of Spain from your own garden and spice rack by combining old favorites in new ways. In Morroccan-inspired Seven Vegetable Soup, tender chickpeas, squash, rutabagas, Swiss chard and zucchini swim with apple, cumin and cinnamon. It’s savory but a little sweet; using vegetable stock makes it vegetarian. Our family used some end-of-

season produce to make a double batch and threw in a couple of extra veggies. Four out of four yums from the Johnson clan! Seven Vegetable Soup Serves 8 2/3 cup chickpeas, soaked overnight and drained 5 cups chopped onions 6 cups beef broth or vegetable stock 8 cups large-diced, peeled butternut squash 1 turnip or rutabaga, cut into wedges about 1/4 inch by 1 inch 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, or more as needed 3 medium zucchini, diced small 2 cups large-diced apples, quinces or pears 1 bunch Swiss chard, greens only, cut into 1/2-inch strips (6 cups) 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons sugar

The Johnson clan gives four out of four yums to S e v e n Ve g e t a b l e S o u p Combine the chickpeas, onions and beef broth or vegetable stock in a large stockpot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the chickpeas are just tender, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Stir in the butternut squash and turnip or rutabaga with the cumin, cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of the salt, and simmer until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and apples, quinces or pears, and simmer for 5 more minutes, or until almost tender. Stir in the chard and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until the chard is tender. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, the pepper and sugar, more or less to taste, and serve. ■ In Spain, the joke goes, garlic is not a seasoning, it’s a vegetable.

can’t put too much garlic in anything. Note the author’s instruction to cook the garlic “just until it starts to brown” in both recipes; this is a good tip for any home chef.And remember, if everyone eats garlic, no one has garlic breath. Garlic Potatoes Serves 8 6 medium thin-skinned potatoes, preferably Kennebec, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch cubes 4 teaspoons salt, divided use 3 tablespoons sunflower or canola oil 1/2 cup finely sliced garlic 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 8 cups canola oil, or enough to fill the pan 3 inches Place the potatoes, 6 quarts of cold water and 2 teaspoons of salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, or until about half cooked — just tender but still very firm. Heat the sunflower or canola oil over medium heat in medium sauté pan and add the garlic. Cook the garlic, stirring, until just begins to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately add the olive oil, red pepSee COOKBOOK, pg. 29A

per, parsley, black pepper and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the salt. Stir together and keep in warm oven or on very low heat, taking care not to cook the garlic any further. Heat 3 inches of oil over medium-high heat in a deep, medium-sized skillet to 350 F. Fry the potatoes until golden brown and crisp, 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain on a rack, then place in a mixing bowl. Stir in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Finally, add the garlic sauce and gently toss together. Serve immediately. Shrimp in Garlic Serves 8 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 10 garlic cloves, sliced very thin 16 shrimp (26 to 30 count), peeled and deveined 2 teaspoons salt, divided use 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 10 tablespoons white wine or lemon juice 1/4 cup roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley Heat the oil in a very large sauce pan over mediumhigh heat. Sauté the pepper flakes and garlic for a minute, then add the shrimp and sauté for another 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of pepper. Quickly take the shrimp out of the pan with a slotted spoon when they are just cooked through. Remove the fried garlic just as it starts to brown and set aside. Add the white wine or lemon juice to the pan (keeping the heat at medium high), and reduce by three-quarters, shaking the pan frequently to emulsify the sauce, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of pepper. Finish the sauce with the chopped parsley. Place the shrimp on a platter and spoon the sauce and fried garlic over the shrimp. ■ Mushroom lovers will flip over these hearty bites stuffed with ham, chorizo sausage, fresh herbs, breadcrumbs and cheese. Chorizo is available in most grocery stores these days; it’s spicy and aromatic and really adds the “bang” to this recipe. Mushrooms (fungi) are in a rather mysterious biological category by themselves; while they’re certainly not animals, they’re closer to us mammals on the evolutionary scale than they are to plants. Think about that while you’re munching. Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms Serves 8 24 large white button or cremini mushrooms, wiped clean with a damp towel or brush 6 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, divided use 6 tablespoons butter, plus extra melted butter for basting as needed 3/4 cup finely chopped onions 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1/2 cup minced Serrano ham 1/2 cup dry-cured chopped chorizo sausage 1/4 cup chopped parsley, thyme, marjoram, or a combination of these 1/2 cup toasted breadcrumbs 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or as needed 2 tablespoons grated Manchego or Parmesan cheese (optional) Remove the stems from the mushrooms and chop them finely. Reserve the caps and 1 to 1 1/3 cups of the chopped stems separately. Heat 6 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and brown the mushroom caps, about 8 minutes, turning halfway through. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat and cook the onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and the mushroom stems and cook until the stems have wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the ham and the chorizo and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Stir in the herbs and breadcrumbs. Season to taste with 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Remember that the ham will give off more salt as it heats. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch bak-

beautifully shares a word that we can live and die by — Eucharisteo: a lifestyle of thanksgiving. In her pit of heartache, a friend challenged her to write a list of 1,000 things she was thankful for. Not of things she wanted or things that she hoped for, but of things she has in the present — the gifts that are a part of her here and now. So she began. • Morning shadows across the old floors. • Jam piled high on the toast. • Cry of a blue jay from high in the spruce. And she continues. Her ongoing list of blessings and inspiring thoughts can be found at aholyexperience.com. To her delight she discovered and shares, “Do not disdain the small. The whole of the life — even the hard — is made up of the minute parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole. (When we choose) to give thanks in this one small thing the moments will add up.” To live eucharisteo is a life-transforming choice. The grace in the middle of the gratitude is that joy follows. It’s not a manufactured happiness or a phony smile. It’s pure, unadulterated joy that naturally flows from a thankful heart. There is a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance (Ecclesiastes 3:4). And when is it a time to give thanks? The Bible provides that answer as well: In all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18). May eucharisteo be the song of our hearts at all times and in all places. ••• Lenae Bulthuis is a wife, mom and friend who muses from her back porch on a Minnesota grain and livestock farm.

green coffee beans from a 60-pound burlap bag. When his roaster signals that the temperature of the rotating drum is 450 degrees Fahrenheit, the beans drop with a rattle from a hopper into the drum. The heavy steel drum in Norgren’s Germanmade roaster is heated by gas from below. Super hot air swirls about the drum. The beans never rest. They fly back and forth and up and down. Norgren can watch the inferno through the roaster’s small glass window. He doesn’t. The digital eye of the computer connected to the roaster does a better job of monitoring time, temperature and quality than the naked eye. Computers have helped small artisan coffee roasters such as Norgren. But they merely free the craftsman to focus more on coffee’s subtleties. “Coffee is a commodity. Its value on the market is second only to oil,” Norgren says. “The big roasters buy entire shipping containers. But my business is small and I can buy one bag at a time. I look for a certain flavor profile within each origin and can enjoy the beauty of that.” When the roaster’s bell rings Norgren knows that a batch is ready. He looks like a magician as the hot beans pour out of the roaster and surround him in a billow of smoke. In a tray at the roaster’s mouth beans are stirred and blown with air for quick cooling. Still, they continue to crackle and pop like Rice Crispies. “I’m trying to bring out the mature sugars and caramels at this point,” he says as he inspects the beans. Making an excellent cup of coffee involves top-quality green beans, skillful roasting, a good grinder and good brewing equipment, Norgren says. Reality Roasters provides all of that in their various top-quality Mexican, Nicaraguan, Hawaiian, Guatemalan and other coffees. They even offer coffee drinkers brewing equipment. To prove his point Norgren opens a one-pound bag of Colombian coffee that is only available to his Cup of Excellence members. He brews it and presents a cup. I previously had two cups of coffee that were the best in my life. Now there are three. To learn more about Reality Roasters call Norgren at (320) 632-0050 or log on to www.realityroasters.com.

Macroeconomics can’t be ignored

Retailers resist higher prices

Harvest conditions ‘tremendous’

The following market analysis is for the week ending Oct. 7. CORN — After a spike lower to start the week, corn finally managed to find some buyer interest when December corn futures traded under $6 last week for the first time since July. Informa Economics updated their crop estimate at midweek which also lent a supportive air to the market. With all the reports of betterthan-expected yields, the trade was expecting Informa to keep the yield at 150 bushels per acre or higher. While their fresh yield fore- PHYLLIS NYSTROM cast of 149.5 bu./acre is still higher Country Hedging than the last U.S. Department of St. Paul Agriculture estimate of 148.1 bu./acre, it was a drop from their 151.0 bu./acre September figure. Informa Economics crop production number is 12.519 billion bushels. Macroeconomic influences couldn’t be ignored this week either. The pendulum was first swinging to the negative side on renewed concerns about European bank stability and Greece’s ability to make their debt payments. This pushed the U.S. dollar higher. As the week progressed, the news took a more positive slant as statements came out that the European Central Bank would hold interest rates at unchanged. This halted the dollar’s upswing. The U.S. non-farm payroll additions for September were friendly at 103,000 when only 60,000 were expected. The August number was also revised up from zero to 57,000 jobs added. The September

The livestock markets have continued to show strength as we moved into October. Most of the strength has been developed in the futures market which has led packers to pay higher for live inventory. This has been most true in the cattle market which has seen speculative buying pushing futures way out ahead of the current cash prices. This activity has been led by the commodity hedge and index funds moving large amounts of money into this market as a hedge against inflation. The true fundamentals would indicate not quite as bullish a sceJOE TEALE nario as what is being presented Broker by the influx of these funds. Great Plains Commodity Afton For example this has forced the packers to push for higher beef cutouts to try to keep their margins at a positive basis. Because of this the retailers are resisting the higher prices and the volume in the boxed beef trade is slowing once again as we move toward the $185 per hundredweight level basis choice. With competitive meats at much lower cost to the retailer and consumer, the emphasis is turning away from beef to the other meats. With the continuing economic struggles worldwide, much higher food costs would not appear to be able to be sustained in the long run. Therefore, cattle prices may be restricted in how far they can advance in the future from current levels. Producers should take advantage of the current strength in the market and at least protect some inventory. The hog market has been helped to some degree, as

The unseasonably warm, dry fall has given us tremendous harvest conditions. The speed of harvest has been a real blessing, given the late planting of this crop. Earlier in the growing season, there was concern of high drying cost. Fortunately this has not been a problem and has saved a great deal of time in the harvesting process. The early frost has not proven to have damaged the crops as many feared. There are some pockets that were especially late in planting that are reporting some “green” beans. Yet, to date this has not been widespread. For TOM NEHER those challenged with these con- AgStar VP Agribusiness ditions, one will want to be cog& Grain Specialist nizant of the grain grading and Rochester discount schedules at the point of sale. One must be careful not to co-mingle “green” beans with beans unaffected by the early frost. This could cause significant financial consequences, due to discounts. As we fill on-farm storage, we must remember that this is another business enterprise that must be managed in a professional manner. There are opportunities to fatten margins with proper managing and merchandising. With these opportunities, there are also risks involved with mismanagement. There is nothing like letting a bin of grain go out of condition, to provide a steep “tuition” bill from the marketplace. Attention to details, such as “pulling the centers” out of the bins to remove the “fines,” to allow for proper air circulation throughout the bin can pay big dividends. Fall tillage could be a challenge with the dry con-

The energy sector also benefited from this influence and crude oil rallied back over $80 per barrel. Have we traded our harvest low? Until the October crop report on the 12th is published it’s hard to say. On the positive side: Conab’s new corn crop estimate for Brazil was pegged at 57.33 to 58.99 million metric tons versus the USDA’s working number of 62 mmt and last year’s 57.5 mmt. Export sales were a marketing year high at 50.8 million bushels with Japan and South Korea the featured buyers. Export sales are forecast at 1.65 billion bushels for 201112, the lowest level since 2002-03. We currently have 674 million bushels of total export commitments on the books at this time, or 41 percent of total exports. The U.S. Grains Council completed their China tour with a crop estimate of 167 mmt versus the USDA’s 178 mmt projection. The USGC forecasts China’s import needs at 5 mmt to 10 mmt of corn when the USDA is carrying them at 2 mmt. On the negative side: There were reports this week that Argentina is close to signing an agreement with China to sell them corn. China has not bought corn from Argentina due to GMO issues. Ukraine threw a wrench at the market on Friday by announcing they intended to cancel their 12 percent maize and 9 percent wheat export duties. The measure must be signed by their president before it happens, and no date has been announced for it to take effect. A new bill proposed in Congress would link the stocks-to-use ratio to the ethanol production mandate. If the stocks-to-use ratio fell below 10 percent, the mandate would decline; a sliding scale would be used as the ratio falls, culminating with a 50 percent reduction in the mandate if the ratio dropped under 5 percent.

OUTLOOK: A survey taken by Bloomberg indicates the U.S. corn yield at 148.79 bu./acre for a crop of 12.479 billion bushels, and ending stocks at 804 million bushels. The USDA in September was using 148.1 bu./acre, a crop of 12.497 billion bushels and ending stocks of 672 million bushels. The December corn contract pierced the $5.75 1/2 July low, hitting $5.72 1/4. This will become our new support level. Resistance comes in near the 14-day moving average at $6.29, then the 200-day moving average at $6.44 3/4 per bushel. December corn closed the week at $6, up 7 1/2 cents for the week. SOYBEANS — Soybean harvest was in full swing this week with no hint of any disappointment on yields, although moisture levels have crept into single digits in many areas of the Midwest. Informa Economics’ new yield estimate is 41.8 bu./acre, on par with the USDA’s September number and only slightly higher than their previous estimate. The trade had been anticipating a slightly larger number due to the better-than-expected yield reports so far this year. Their crop production is pegged at 3.087 billion bushels, on par with the September USDA number of 3.085 billion bushels. Weekly export sales were 25.8 million bushels with half of those sales to China. China also bought 122,100 metric tons of U.S. soybeans this week, even with China on holiday all week. Conab’s first estimate for the 2011-12 crop year puts acreage up 2 to 3.5 percent

The U.S. Senate has delayed a vote on a bill intended to make it easier to raise tariffs on imports from countries that are perceived to subsidize exports by keeping their currency undervalued. It is not expected to pass the House. OUTLOOK: Soybean harvest is hitting the half-way point after excellent harvest weather and farmer selling has been minimal at this price level. November beans have been able to hold support at the 100-day moving average, which is $11.52 on the close. This coincides with this week’s low. If this is broken, the next support doesn’t come into play until almost $11/bu. Short-term resistance is at this week’s high at $11.89 3/4 and the 14-day moving average at $12.27/bu. November beans were down 20 3/4 cents this week at $11.58 1/4 per bushel. The Bloomberg survey’s expectations for the Oct. 12 report were 42.06 bu./acre, a crop of 3.102 billion bushels, with ending stocks at 186 million bushels. In September, the USDA was using 41.8 bu./acre, a crop of 3.085 billion bushels and ending stocks of 165 million bushels. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ended Oct. 7: Minneapolis December wheat soared 27 1/4 cents higher, Kansas City down 19 1/2 cents and Chicago down 1 3/4 cents/bu.

Pork product value better than beef TEALE, from pg. 1B have the cattle, by the influx of speculative money flowing into the futures. There has also been some new export business around and more rumors of more exports in the future. The cash side of the market has been more of a leader than the futures as packers have been fairly steady buyers of inventory. Like the cattle, as pork cutouts continue to rise, the resistance to higher prices by the retail and exporters will climb also.

The value of pork products is far better than the value of beef at current prices since they are virtually half of that of the beef cutouts. Again the economic conditions are going to play a significant role in the futures prices of hogs down the road. The continuing stagnant and deteriorating conditions of world economies, and the lack of any progress to eliminate these problems, could hamper the outlook for pork prices as well. It would be prudent for producers to protect at least part of their inventory at this time and use further strength to up their protection.

This is not the time to panic NEHER, from pg. 1B ditions this year. If conditions are such that more damage will be made to soil profiles or machinery than it is worth, one may want to wait for a rain. Soil types and weather conditions will play a big part in these factors. Sometimes we can do more damage to soil conditions by misapplied tillage, putting one in a disadvantaged position in the spring with poor seedbeds. This is a judgment call that must be made. Consider the return on the investment. Many grain producers who have held on to grain un-priced going into harvest — because this has paid off the last couple of years — are feeling frustrated with the market action of late. Those who did not want to sell, due to fear that they would see price move higher and leave “money on the table” are now looking at $2 in corn and $3 in soybeans left on the

table. The temptation for “panic selling” is compelling. This is not the time to panic. It may take some time, but this market is still strong. While corn could trade lower into the “gut-slot” of harvest, the long-term supply and demand situation should lead to another rally later in the 2011-12 marketing year. In its September supply and demand report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture pegged domestic ending stocks-to-use at 5.3 percent, the second-tightest on record and global ending stocks-to-use at 13.6 percent, the tightest since the 11.7 percent estimated at the end of the 1973-74 marketing year. We must remember that farming and grain marketing is not easy. If it was, everyone would be doing it. Let us remember to be thankful for the blessings of a harvest and role that we play in feeding a hungry world.


2011 crop insurance considerations offer usual variability

cies with enterprise units were much more favorable than for policies utilizing “optional units.” Prior to 2009, most producers used optional units, which allow producers to insure corn and soybeans separately in each township section. Many more producers are now taking advantage of the lower premium levels with enterprise units, allowing them to upgrade to 80 percent or 85 percent RP coverage. Producers who have 2011 crop losses on individual farms, and have crop insurance coverage with optional units, may be able to collect crop insurance indemnity payments on their 2011 corn or soybean crop on some farm units, while not on others. Meanwhile, producers with crop insurance policies with enterprise units in 2011, may be less likely to qualify for 2011 crop insurance indemnity payments, unless they had crop losses on a significant portion of crop acres in a county. Due to the recent drop in CBOT crop prices, along with the low corn and soybean yields in some areas due to poor 2011 weather conditions, there are likely to be more producers with enterprise units that qualify for crop insurance indemnity payments in 2011, as compared to 2010. Many producers saw some significant savings in crop insurance premium costs in the past couple of years by switching to enterprise units, which work quite well when a producer incurs general yield reductions due to drought or poor growing conditions, or when the harvest price drops lower than the initial base price.

Drop in CBOT prices may mean favorable RP prices PROGRAMS, from pg. 3B However, in situations when most crop losses were from severe storms and heavy rains that damaged some farms and not others, or damaged parts of farms, optional units are far superior to enterprise units, as far as potential for crop insurance indemnity payments. Producers with enterprise units who purchased supplemental hail insurance coverage as part of their overall risk management plan in 2011 may have qualified for some indemnity payments on farms with crop losses from hail storms during the growing season. Producers should contact their crop insurance agent to better understand insurance coverage with enterprise units, as compared to optional units, for the 2012 crop year. Calculating potential 2011 crop insurance payments Some farmers in Minnesota and surrounding states will be facing reduced yields on some farm units in 2011, due to heavy rains and severe storms. Many growers purchased upgraded levels of YP or RP crop insurance for the 2011 growing season. The recent drop in CBOT prices should lead to more favorable RP harvest prices, which could result in more producers qualifying for 2011 crop insurance indemnity payments.

Following is an analysis of potential 2011 crop loss scenarios that could result in likely crop insurance indemnity payments with RP policies. RP insurance policies An initial “price guarantee” is established for each crop prior to the crop insurance enrollment deadline on March 15 each year. The final price guarantee is determined at harvest time in the fall. The price guarantees are based off of CBOT grain futures prices. Following is how RP price guarantees are calculated. Corn Base price is the average settlement price for December CBOT corn futures in February. Harvest price for RP policies is the average settlement price for December CBOT corn futures in October during the year of harvest. Soybeans Base price is the average settlement price for November soybean futures in February. Harvest price for RP policies is the average settlement price for November CBOT soybean futures in October during the year of harvest. 2011 RP base prices were: Corn: $6.01/bu. Soybeans: $13.49/bu. 2011 RP harvest price estimates as of

Management can be one of those words that is just a word; we do not fully understand it so we just accept it as a word. Digging into definitions, Webster’s Dictionary defines it as the act of managing; the conducting or supervising of something.Another definition says it is the combination of marketing and innovation. You know you need to market the product and adopt new technologies or innovations to be more efficient, but is that all there is to management? If you really go back into history, Sir Thomas More (1478-1535) studied low-efficiency and failures of certain enterprises. He is credited with the development of the practice of modern management.

Beware of surface foam while pumping barn manure pits Pork producers, commercial pumpers and others need to watch for a layer of foam on the surface when pumping barn manure pits. This foam contains numerous gases hazardous to people and animals, but methane in particular can cause barn explosions and/or flash fires. “If a 6-inch thick or greater layer of foam is present and it is disturbed during normal pit agitation and pumping, a sudden release of dissolved gases will occur,” said Larry Jacobson, an agricultural engineer with University of Minnesota Extension. Without adequate barn ventila-

tion, this can result in methane concentrations reaching the lower explosive level of 5 percent or 50,000 parts per million. “An explosion is then likely if an ignition source is present from a pilot light, electric spark from a motor or cigarette,” Jacobson said. Unfortunately, an incident recently occurred like this in central Iowa, severely injuring one person. Agricultural engineers, animal scientists and pork industry consultants have developed the following recommendations to help producers address this serious safety concern.

Provide continuous ventilation to prevent a gas build-up. Increase ventilation during agitation to quickly dissipate released gases. Sufficient ventilation or exchange of air in the barn is always essential to keep the concentration of methane below its explosive threshold. • Sufficient air exchange in a barn while agitating and pumping a manure pit is at least two to three times the minimum ventilation rate (or around 10 air changes per hour) for the barn. • If the pit is full or nearly full, do not rely only on pit fans to supply this airflow rate, since these fans may be severely restricted. It may be better to use only wall fans to supply this air exchange while agitating/pumping the barn’s manure pit since methane gas is lighter than air. • Make sure your normal ventilation inlets are open and operating properly to ensure good air distribution in the barn. This is also important in preventing animal deaths (if animals must be present in barns) during agitation and pumping of the manure pit. Turn off heater pilot lights and other non-ventilation electrical systems (such as the feeding system) that might produce an ignition spark. Not providing supplemental heat in the barn may be problematic for cases when there are no animals in the barn or there are only small animals that require

warmer inside temperatures. This may restrict when you pump manure from such a barn to warmer days or a warmer part of the day. When pumping pits that are close to being full, pump without agitation until manure is about 2 feet below the slats. This will allow pit fans (if available and used) to perform properly during agitation and provide more dilution space for methane and other gases that are released. According to Jacobson, there is currently no consistent solution to controlling this foaming in pig manure pits. Researchers do not yet understand all the factors (diet, manure pH, others) that cause this problem. Several research projects are ongoing to better understand the causes and eventually provide solutions to this serious problem, he said.

Measure the productivity of your beef cow herd The Extension Beef Team provides the chute and scale and personnel to set up and operate the chute on the ranch at weaning time. All that the cow-calf producer needs to do upon registering is work out a time for Beef Team personnel to come to their operation with the chute for weighing and weaning. There are no minimum or maximum herd sizes; previous years have seen herd sizes ranging from 50 to 300 head. The total cost of the program is $250, reduced to $150 if the producer is enrolled in a Farm Business Management program. This registration fee covers travel to the producer’s operation with a chute, weighing all cows and calves in the herd, compiling the data and report, and returning for an onsite consultation in the winter. This program is open to cow-calf producers in north

central and northern Minnesota. Space is limited in this program, and weaning time is nearly upon us, so contact the Extension Beef Team soon if you are interested in this program.

With feed and pasture costs at extreme highs with no relief in sight, it is as important as ever for beef cow-calf producers to make sure that their cow herd is as productive as possible. A simple way to do this is to weigh cows and calves at weaning, and determine if the calf ’s weaning weight is large enough to justify the cost of maintaining that cow. This seems simple enough, but few cow-calf producers have a chute and scale available to accomplish this task. Fortunately, through the Minnesota Beef Improvement Program offered by the University of Minnesota Extension Beef Team, Northland College and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, cow-calf producers have the opportunity to assess the productivity of each cow in the herd. The BIP is an on-ranch program that assesses cow herd productivity through collecting weights, body condition and frame size information on each cow and calf at weaning. After collecting these data, Extension Beef Team members compile the data and return a detailed report showing the productivity per cow, an economic analysis of each cow, and provide suggestions on how these data can be used to improve overall herd productivity. In addition, participants complete a questionnaire regarding their cow management practices that is reviewed by Extension Beef Team members. After all the data are compiled and the questionnaire is completed, a team of Extension Beef Team experts make a site visit to the ranch to discuss the results and show how these results can be used to improve cow herd productivity.

Lime Spreading

“Have you checked your soil PH lately”

HAAS EQUIP., LLC

• 320-598-7604 •

Madison, MN From Hwy. 75 & 212 Jct., 3.5 mi. W., 2.5 mi. S.

Advantages we offer: • We unload directly from the trucks to a floater (Terra Gator) without stockpiling material. This gives us a more uniform spread with no foliage to plug up the spreader. • With direct loading there is no stockpile, no wasted lime or mess in your field. • We use a floater (Terra Gator) to spread so we have less compaction. • We are equipped to spread variable rate using GPS mapping. • We service Minnesota and northern Iowa. Why apply Aglime: • A soil ph level of 5.5 nitrogen efficiency is only 77 percent. • A soil ph level of 6.0 nitrogen efficiency still is only 89 percent. • At a soil ph level of 7.0 fertilizer efficiency is 100 percent. for questions or prices please call
