Views on Panama, Colombia and South Korea free trade agreements

USGC: Trade pacts could mean $13 billion extra The U.S. Grains Council salutes Congress on final passage of the longstalled free trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and South Korea. These agreements provide significant benefits for U.S. agricultural trade and the U.S. economy by leveling the playing field in markets where U.S. producers have been laboring under an unfair

competitive disadvantage. Ratification of the agreements provides for immediate duty-free access for most U.S. goods, creating opportunities for increases in U.S. agricultural exports which will generate economic growth and U.S. jobs. The agreements are expected to generate roughly $13 billion in additional export revenue, with approximately $11 billion

of the total flowing to South Korea. “This is great news,” said USGC Chairman Wendell Shauman. “Our farmer leaders have been working hard with Congressional members to demonstrate the benefits of U.S. agricultural trade. Their hard work has paid off.” Shauman and Thomas C. Dorr, USGC president and CEO, will travel to Colombia and Panama in the near future for meetings with private sector and governmental leaders aimed at regaining U.S. grain exports to the region. U.S. agricultural exports have lost market share in both countries in recent years because other exporting countries have negotiated their own free-trade agreements, excluding the United States, while the U.S. trade agreements remained stalled.

In 2007, for example, Colombia imported 3 million tons of corn with the United States enjoying a 95 percent market share. In 2010, however, imports fell to 700,000 metric tons and U.S. market share shrunk to less than 20 percent. “With a level playing field, the United States has an excellent chance of winning back these markets,” Shauman said. We have a shipping advantage from the Gulf ports, and we have historically been a trusted partner and preferred provider for grain exports in the Caribbean Basin. It’s great to be back in the game.” ••• This commentary was submitted by the U.S. Grains Council.

MFB: FTAs long time coming The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation is pleased that Congress passed the three bilateral free-trade agreements between the United States and Korea, Colombia and Panama, as well as, Trade Adjustment Assistance. “The free trade agreements with Korea, Colombia and Panama have been stalled for several years causing major trading opportunities to diminish. Swift implementation is critical so we can restore a level playing field for U.S. farm exports to these three nations,” said MFBF President Kevin Paap. “We thank the members of Min-

nesota’s Congressional delegation who voted for the passage of these three trade agreements.” Paap said that economic analysis performed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service estimates that annual direct U.S. agricultural exports to Korea, Colombia and Panama will increase by nearly $2.5 billion per year upon full implementation of the agreements. In total, the agreements are expected to increase direct exports from Minnesota by more than $99 million per year. The agreements will particularly increase trade for pork, beef, soybeans, corn, dairy and processed food and fish, resulting in nearly 900 additional jobs in Minnesota. “The economic growth generated from the agreements is important to farmers and ranchers, and it is important for job creation in Minnesota and throughout the United States,” Paap said. ••• This commentary was submitted by the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation, representing farmers, families, food comprised of 78 local Farm Bureau associations across Minnesota.


Views on Panama, Colombia and South Korea free trade agreements

The American Soybean Association is celebrating Congressional passage of the U.S. Free Trade Agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama that represent nearly $3 billion of additional agriculture exports to these trading partners. ASA applauds President Barack Obama and Congress for working together to reach a final vote and urges the administration to ensure that these FTAs enter into force by Jan. 1, 2012. “ASA has been working for a number of years toward passage of these trade agreements, which contain significant export gains for U.S. agriculture.” said ASA President Alan Kemper, a soybean producer from Lafayette, Ind.

“Increased exports of U.S. soy and soy-fed meat and poultry will benefit soybean farmers and rural economies. After nearly five years of delays and loss of U.S. market share, soybean farmers look forward to realizing the opportunities these FTAs provide for America’s economic growth.” The Korea FTA offers immediate duty-free access to U.S. soybeans for crushing and to U.S. soybean meal. It also opens up South Korea’s foodgrade soybean imports to the private sector. The agreement will increase exports of the major grain, oilseed, fiber, fruit and vegetable, and livestock products by $1.8 billion annually, according to economic forecasts by the American

OPINION

Farm Bureau Federation. The Colombia FTA will create new opportunities for U.S. soybean farmers in the Colombian market by immediately eliminating tariffs ranging from 5 to 20 percent on soybeans, soybean meal and soybean flour, and phasingout the 24 percent tariffs for crude soybean oil and refined soybean oil over five years. “Most exports from Colombia already enter the U.S. duty-free, and this FTA will correct the current tariff imbalance

in agricultural trade between our countries,” Kemper said. The Panama FTA will benefit soybean farmers by immediately removing the tariffs on U.S. soybeans, soybean meal and crude vegetable oils. ••• This commentary was submitted by the American Soybean Association, representing all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry.

NCGA: FTAs help U.S. catch up Since the EU-Korea trade agreement went into effect July 1, European exports to Korea have increased 36 percent from a year earlier. U.S. farmers have already lost more than $1 billion in sales to Colombia in the two years since that country implemented a trade deal with Argentina and Brazil. The Colombia-Canada Free Trade Agreement that took effect Aug. 15 has also put U.S. workers and farmers at a disadvantage. “Prior to Congress’ passage of the FTAs, farmers watched as other nations received access to markets over the United States,” Niemeyer said. “We need to keep and create jobs in America. The FTAs will help us achieve that.” ••• This commentary was submitted by the National Corn Growers Association.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

The National Corn Growers Association praised passage of the free trade agreements in the House and Senate. “The three free trade agreements with Korea, Colombia and Panama provide great opportunities for America’s farmers,” said NCGA President Garry Niemeyer, a corn farmer from Auburn, Ill. “Passage by Congress ensures our industry continues to lead the nation in economic growth and international competitiveness. In addition, this action shows members of Congress understand the importance of the FTAs to rural America.” Statistics show passage of the three FTAs could create 250,000 American jobs and add an additional $13 billion annually in exports. The United States continues to be the largest producer and exporter of corn in the world, exporting 50.4 million metric tons last year.

Under the Clean Water Act the agency simply goes out and declares a stream, no matter how small, as degraded and they are going to make it cleaner than it has ever been.

The Minnesota Pork Board donated 1,860 pounds of ground pork to Second Harvest Heartland, the Upper Midwest’s largest hunger relief organization, to help feed families in need across the state. Both the MPB and Second Harvest Heartland are Minnesota-based organizations that take pride in helping families in need. “Second Harvest Heartland extends our sincere gratitude to the Minnesota Pork Board for their generous gift,” said Rob Zeaske, Second Harvest Heartland executive director. “Donations of proteins like pork are tremendously valuable, as they are some of the most costly to buy for our neighbors in need. Thanks to the Minnesota Pork Board, so many families will be able to enjoy this filling, nutritious food.” This summer, the MPB hosted events throughout the Twin Cities. Events ran May through August as part of the Oink Outings campaign, which connects consumers in the cities with Minnesota farmers who help ensure families can put safe, nutritious pork on the dinner table. Through activities at these events, participants were able to activate a donation from the MPB to Second Harvest Heartland of 1,860 pounds of ground pork in less than three months. “This donation is one way for pork farmers to give back to the community,” said Dave Preisler, MPB executive director. “An added benefit of this effort was the opportunity to engage consumers and farmers in a dialogue about how their food is raised.” “It’s great to see two local organizations working together to better our community,” said Dave Frederickson, Minnesota Department of Agriculture commissioner. “Our mission is to enhance Minnesotans’ quality of life by ensuring the integrity of our food supply, the health of our environment and the strength of our agricultural economy. This donation helps to fulfill several parts of that mission.” About the Minnesota Pork Board The MPB administers programs relating to pork promotion, consumer and producer education and swine research on behalf of the 4,400 Minnesota pork producing families who pay into the mandatory Pork Checkoff.

The product will be delivered through March 2012 and raised the CWT’s 2011 cheese export total to 78.9 million pounds. FC Stone’s e-Dairy Insider reminds us that Mexico has lifted its retaliatory tariffs following resolution of a U.S.-Mexico trucking dispute, opening prospects for increased exports to that country. Meanwhile, farm milk production is steady in the Northeast and Central regions and some states in the Southwest, according to the USDA. Idaho and Utah milk supplies are decreasing. Florida and California milk is steadily trending higher.

Weather hadn’t taken a toll on production the week of Oct. 17 but manufacturing milk supplies continued to be lessened by fluid milk demand. Cream demand from ice cream accounts softened but interest in cream for sour cream, dips, cream cheese and other holiday-related items is increasing. ■ Cost of production is one of the top concerns for farmers, especially those regularly purchasing feed inputs. Alfalfa hay supplies are tight. During 2011, domestic buyers are increasingly competing with offshore buyers for hay. Foreign Agricultural Service reports for January to August had U.S. exports of alfalfa hay, at 1.1 million tons, up 13 percent from the same months of 2010. FAS reports Japan and United Arab

Emirates lead in importing alfalfa hay. Milk supplies also are heavy in New Zealand and Argentina as I reported last week, however the Daily Dairy Report says a natural gas pipeline leak on New Zealand’s north island this week resulted in the closure of 15 Fonterra dryer plants and subsequent dumping of an estimated 30 million liters of milk per day. Some plants were soon back on line with back-up gas supplies. Estimates vary, the DDR said, but as much as a third of New Zealand’s milk production was reportedly withheld from the market on Oct. 25. ■ In politics, the International Dairy Foods Association gave a thumbs-down to the Institute of Medicine’s front-ofpack nutrition labeling rating and symbols recommendations, saying it uses a “flawed formula that could confuse consumers seeking information on the nutrient content of food and beverages.” “According to the proposed labeling system, low-fat dairy products, which are recommended as nutrient-rich foods to encourage in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, would receive a rating of two stars while products devoid of positive nutrients such as a diet soft drink could qualify for three stars,” said Cary Frye, IDFA vice president of regulatory and scientific affairs. “A labeling system that focuses on calories and ‘nutrients to avoid’ does not provide consumers with the full range of information needed to make healthy and nutritious choices,” IDFA said. The call was made for a simplified label symbol that would go on the front of all food packages and highlight the number

of calories per serving. The symbol would also use a zero to three star, or point, system to indicate how healthful a food is based on eligibility criteria and qualifying levels of saturated fat and trans-fat, sodium and added sugars. “Providing a complete picture of the product, including nutrients to encourage and others to limit, in an easy-tounderstand, consistent labeling format would be much more helpful than this over-simplified approach,” Frye said. ■ The continuing slide in fluid milk sales remains a disappointment for the dairy industry and some question whether fluid milk promotion is “spending good money after bad.” Dairy Management Inc.’s Joe Bavido told me in an interview at World Dairy Expo that the DMI’s board has had similar thoughts after spending $50 million to $70 million per year in the ’90s on the “Got Milk” and “Milk Mustache” campaigns and yet sales continued to fall. That led to changes, Bavido said, and the DMI totally eliminated the generic advertising of milk as they felt they could gain more with partnerships with fast food outlets like McDonald’s. Bavido said fluid sales have grown there and the DMI concentrated on doing a better marketing job of milk in schools, offering a product “the way kids wanted it and where they wanted it.” ••• Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

Grain Outlook Corn harvest well ahead

Livestock Angles Grain Angles Cattle acting Risk management erratically lately key to survival

The following market analysis is for the week ending Oct. 28. CORN — As we pushed into the final stage of harvest, corn traded entirely within last week’s range. This consolidation was accompanied by improving news from the European community on how they plan to fix their debt crisis, which in turn pushed the U.S. dollar to its lowest level since early September. There was one bump in the road this week when a meeting of European financial leaders was canceled, although the leadership meeting went on as planned. European leaders announced a PHYLLIS NYSTROM Country Hedging package that included banks takSt. Paul ing a 50 percent haircut on the value of Greek debt, increasing the bailout fund to $1 trillion Euros, and raising the capital ratio of EU banks. Third quarter Gross Domestic Product in the United States at 2.5 percent was as expected, but nearly double the growth seen in the second quarter. The U.S. dollar was substantially weaker and gold higher as a result of traders’ reactions to the EU announcement. Corn harvest at 65 percent as of Oct. 23 was further along than the market expected, meaning not as many bushels were left to come into the pipeline. The average harvest pace for this time frame is 51 percent complete. The Eastern Corn Belt is lagging due to rain and would like to see a dry period. Ohio corn harvest was only 14 percent complete versus 41 percent average. Both Illinois and Minnesota were 79 percent complete. Basis levels continued to strengthen domestically with export numbers

As we end October, the livestock markets seem to have lost some of their volatility. However given the state of the markets in general it is likely we will see that volatility return in the weeks ahead. This could lead to some sharp and quick moves to both cattle and hogs. The cattle market has seen some pretty erratic price moves in the past several weeks. Cash cattle prices have advanced then declined only to return back higher again. During this time the futures led the cash markets to these sharp moves and eventually closing higher. The small problem that has effected the cattle market in the past is still the problem today. JOE TEALE The beef cutout reaches the $185 Broker per hundredweight area and the Great Plains Commodity Afton volume in the boxed beef begins to drop. This continues to reflect domestic retail resistance at these higher levels. With competitive meats at much lower wholesale prices, it will be hard for the beef market to make any significant advances without the meats making advances in prices also. Demand will continue to be the key for price direction in the weeks ahead. On the supply side, the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Oct. 21, released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The results were as follows: On-feed, 105 percent; placements, 100 percent; marketed, 101 percent, all as in comparison to last year. The report was seen as slightly negative as placements and on-feed numbers were higher than estimates. With the economy still in a poor state, and the packers in a poor margin situation, it seems unlikely

As we wrap up harvest and prepare for winter, we look back on an amazing year in the markets. Clearly, there was no lack of drama and more than enough volatility to cause sleepless nights. Everywhere that we look, we see risk and opportunity. It seems to be human nature to focus on one of these sets of circumstances more than the other. If we are bullish, we tend to focus on the opportunities. While, if we are bearish, the risks are all that we can see. It takes a great deal of discipline to maintain a healthy balance in this current market environment. TOM NEHER Risk is defined as the “potential AgStar VP Agribusiness that a chosen action or activity & Grain Specialist (including the choice of inaction) Rochester will lead to a loss (an undesirable outcome).” The last several years the grain markets have rewarded those who accepted the risk of “inaction.” Those that did nothing in the way of proactive, pre-harvest marketing and simply held on to their grain unpriced until after harvest; were rewarded with higher prices. This is unusual market behavior and there is little historical evidence to support this as a profitable, ongoing practice. The power of regret (and anticipation of regret) can play a significant part in decision-making. We look back on what marketing strategies we should have used the last couple of years and we feel a sense of regret about lost opportunities. The emotional components are oddly human. We feel worse about selling $6 corn and watching it trade to $7;

Beans play catch-up, then fall at month’s end corn production up by 10 mmt to a record 855 mmt. OUTLOOK: Outside markets continue to exert directional influence, but post-harvest South American weather should gain in importance. The next fundamental push should come from the Nov. 9 USDA crop report. By most accounts, the USDA needs to increase China’s import line by 50 million bushels. Later corn yields were also in the slightly disappointing category in many areas. Could we see smaller yield and carryout numbers in November? December corn was up 5 3/4 cents this week to settle at $6.55 per bushel. The short-term range for corn is $6.65/$6.80 to $6.25/bu. SOYBEANS — Soybeans were well on their way to play catch-up on corn this week, inspired by improved manufacturing growth in China in October for the first time in four months and a weaker dollar, before falling victim to end of month/position evening/pre-weekend selling. January soybeans were up 5 1⁄4 cents this week, closing at $12.26bu., but closed the week on a weak note. Harvest in the United States was 80 percent com-

Hogs run into resistance; prices fall back the U.S. dollar remaining firm against most foreign currencies, expanding exports may be difficult. On Oct. 21, the USDA released a Cold Storage Report that indicated a fairly large increase in total pork supplies in storage over the past month and last year. This would also indicate that demand is the major influence on hog and pork prices. With increasing numbers of hogs and building supplies of pork, the hog market should have a difficult time in sustaining a rally at this time. Therefore producers should consider protecting inventory through the remainder of the year.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

TEALE, from pg. 22A that a sustained rally in the cattle market is in the picture at this time. Producers should consider using the current strength to protect some inventory. Hogs have recently run into resistance and prices have fallen back as supplies of hogs have expanded since the first of October. At the same time pork cutout advanced over the $100/cwt. level and the volume in pork product declined again reflecting a domestic resistance to higher-priced meat. Export business has remained good, however with

plete versus the 71 percent average. This was in line with expectations. South American production estimates for this coming year are running in the 73 mmt to 76 mmt range for Brazil and 52 mmt to 54 mmt for Argentina. The USDA’s last numbers were 73.5 mmt and 53 mmt, respectively. La Nina usually produces drier conditions for southern Brazil and Argentina in late spring to early summer. Extended weather forecasts need to be monitored. China is estimating their soybean imports at 56 mmt, close to the USDA’s 56.5 mmt forecast. China’s September soybean imports were 4.1 mmt, bringing 2010-11 crop year imports to 52.3 mmt. Export sales this week were disappointing at 8.3 million bushels with Mexico and China the leading buyers. Total export commitments are running 33 percent behind last year. OUTLOOK: A strong basis market is still being seen in the country with grower selling nearly nonexistent as harvest is virtually over. Once the bin doors slam shut, the market is going to have a more difficult time in attracting bushels into the domestic pipeline. January soybeans should find first support near $12.07 and first resistance just over $12.50/bu. The weather situation in South America and the pace of U.S. exports are currently bearish, but domestic demand is friendly as well as recent developments with Europe’s economic situation.

NYSTROM, from pg. 22A slightly lower. Farmers are in no hurry to sell at these levels which is keeping pipelines tight and leaving it to the basis and futures markets to attract bushels. China announced this week they expect to import 5 million metric tons of corn this year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has them dialed in for 2 mmt. The USDA also announced a corn sale of 100,000 mt to unknown. Ethanol production for the week ending Oct. 21 was 909,000 barrels per day, up 1,000 from the previous week and 3 percent higher than last year. This is the largest weekly number since June. Weekly export sales were dismal at only 13.2 million bushels. This dropped total commitments to 4 percent higher than last year versus 5 percent last week. The biggest buyer was Japan, followed by Mexico. This week also saw Japan purchasing a cargo of Ukrainian corn, the first time Japan has sourced corn there in over a year, and Taiwan bought a corn cargo each from Brazil and Ukraine.

Find balance in handling risk The key is to find a balance between accepting some risks and mitigating others with risk management tools and management practices. The practice of “laying risk off onto others,” is one to be mastered. The use of a “risk ledger” is helpful for monitoring and controlling the “probability and/or impact of unfortunate events.” On one side of the ledger, list all of the identified risks. As the risk is mitigated, it is moved to the other side of the ledger. An example of unpriced grain, being at risk of being sold into a falling market, is moved to the mitigated side of the ledger when it is priced. We in production agriculture are risk takers. If we did not take the risk of putting the seed into the ground, we would never have a crop to harvest. There is always weather risk and other production risk. Margin risk is ever present in this market environment. We must learn how to give the risk to others whenever possible. We give up some of the “upside” opportunity when we do this, yet we eliminate the “downside” consequence. When this can be accomplished, while locking-in a profit, we position ourselves for success.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

NEHER, from pg. 22A than when we sell $6 corn after seeing trade at $7. It is all the same money, yet we strangely feel better selling into a “down” market than selling into a rally market. If risk and opportunities are “flip sides of the same coin,” then regret and overconfidence are likewise. In these profitable times for grain producers, everything that we do seems to make money. This tends to lead to complacency and overconfidence. This can lead to taking on poorly managed risk and losing sight of the financial hazards along the way. Risk management will be the key to our ability to leverage the opportunities ahead. Risk management is the “identification, assessment and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events.” It is easy to make the conclusion that the elimination of risk is the key to success. If this is one’s goal, very little money will be made in our operations. One must take some risk, in order to leverage the opportunities in the marketplace.

Let’s grow more sheep, one flock at a time By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Appropriately titled “Let’s Grow with Two Plus,” a special media event at the Jeremy and Tracy Geske farmstead Oct. 12 featured six Minnesota sheep producers and Burton Pfliger, a veteran North Dakota sheep man who also is secretary-treasurer of the American Sheep Industry. The ambitious goals of the ASI as presented by this team are: Goal 1 — In smaller flocks, increase at least two ewes per flock; in ewe flocks of 100 ewes or more increase two ewes per 100 head. Goal 2 — Increase the average birth rate to two lambs per ewe. Nationally the figure is only about 1.5 lambs per ewe today. Goal 3 — Increase the harvested lamb crop by 2 percent, which would be an increase of 67,500 lambs mar-

keted. The projected deadline for these goals is 2014. If the goals are met, it would mean an additional 175,000 ewes and an additional 254,000 lambs. An expansion of the U.S. sheep industry couldn’t happen at a better time. The industry is experiencing record high demand for both wool and meat with a net result of historically high lamb prices “Nationwide these increases would result in a sheep inventory of 315,000 more lambs. At today’s market prices that equates to $71 million more dollars in the bank account of America’s sheep producers. Plus there would be an additional 2 million more pounds of wool with a market value of $3 million more dollars in the hands of producers,” Pfliger said. He also noted that for every 1,000 ewes there are an additional 18 jobs

cows. So we soon bought some sheep and it seemed we were in the rabbit business, the numbers went up so fast.” The sheep were great for family life with he and his children showing sheep at various fairs. He was soon providing six to seven processed lambs to a local store specializing in locally grown food products, especially farmreared lamb. Because of his personal health, Dvorak has cut back to 40 ewes with most sold into the breeding market. “Sheep are a good niche-farming enterprise. You can get by with minimal equipment costs and space. We need to build our industry because it’s pretty obvious the market is growing. And if we don’t provide the product, imported lamb from Australia and elsewhere will be there.” Don Adelmann, of Cologne, Minn., labels himself as a small commercial sheep producer. “We only have 40 ewes. I started with one lamb and one goat. Today I sell some of my lambs into the ethnic market. And because I’m close to the Twin Cities that can sometimes be a good outlet.” He told of four men who stopped at his farm. “They didn’t have even a special knife so I borrowed my knife to them and they butchered 13 that day.” Breeding sheep for the seedstock market is the practice of Rex Quam, Wanamingo, Minn., seedstock producer of both Suffolk and Hampshire breeding stock. He does some fall lambing and lambs out about 100 of his ewes each spring. He’s generating premium prices for his product by doing embryo-transfer work and then selling that seedstock via the internet, Facebook and other electronic technologies. “This year we’ve sold seedstock into 14 states via the internet and always with a premium price,” Quam said. He took online courses with the Pipestone Veterinary Clinic to get into the hands-on process of embryo transfer work. He also attends various sheep industry shows to build his network of potential buyers. Quam is now on the National Suffolk Sheep Board of Directors. Starting as a 9-year-old 4-H’er, Geske shared how his dad let him pick two ewes which eventually became the seedstock for his purebred Suffolk operation. He mostly sells breeding stock with many of his rams sold as terminal sires to western range producers.

SHEEP, from pg. 24A Persons is past president of the Minnesota Lamb and Wool Producers Association. He’s encouraged with the new optimism that he senses among established sheep producers plus the strong interest by hobby farmers who see a small ewe flock as a niche marketing opportunity. “We plan to increase our flock by 5 to 10 percent per year for the next several years. Every time we think we have reached the limit on our facilities and labor, we re-evaluate and find ways to be more efficient with both,” said Persons who uses select culling and building with elite ewe lambs. He said it is imperative that industry members take the increased demand for more lamb seriously and he encourages sheep producers to increase their numbers. He said membership in the MLWPA as well as information from the Pipestone Sheep Program and the Pipestone Veterinary Clinic can be tremendously helpful especially for newbies in the sheep business. Kroger and Walmart want more lamb Lamb processors are clamoring for a great supply of lamb. In 2011, Kroger, one of America’s largest grocery store chains, launched an American lamb branded campaign to sell more American-grown product. Walmart also made a commitment to exclusively carry American lamb in its stores. Glenwood, Minn., producer Randy Kinney is a state director of the MLWPA. He used to live in St. Paul but now has an 83-acre hobby farm that houses his 80-ewe flock. “This started as a hobby. I still have my daytime job but really do enjoy working with the sheep. The investment was low. We use an old dairy barn for lambing and feeding.” Kinney uses the Polypay breed, noted for their prolificacy. “Not the best quality wool but lots of lambs. A 200-percent lamb crop is quite doable with this breed. And my feeding program is basically what I can find in leftover residue, be that from a local sweet corn plant, or culled potatoes, or DDGs from an area ethanol plant. I’m glad we chose sheep for our hobby farm.” John Dvorak, a Webster, Minn., producer with purebred Hampshire and Dorset, used to be a 40-cow dairy farmer but lean times in the milking business prompted him to sell the cows and get a day-time job. “But the kids were devastated when we sold the

Farm becomes one big, woolly classroom for students By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Renville County, Minn., sheep producer Brad Myers hosted 215 fifth grade students at his farm in midOctober as part of a four-farm visit sponsored by the Renville County HRA/Ag Energy committee. There were five bus loads arriving about every hour. “These visits are as rewarding for me as they are for the students. They’ve asked some very intelligent questions. It recharges me. I’m excited that they are interested in agriculture. Anymore there aren’t enough young people caring about farming and agriculture,” Myers said. “In my industry I go west to buy my breeding stock and my feeder lambs. At these sale barns I see the seats filled with 65- to 75-year old farmers and ranchers.That scares the dickens out of me. We need these younger kids to get excited about agriculture. I think it’s up to us older people to help generate this interest.” Myers and his son Dusty operate Middle Creek Sheep Farm which involves 900-acres crop farming, an 800-ewe lambing operation and a 3,500-head yearly feeder lamb business. Despite record prices in the sheep business he talked of three limitations. “There’s an attitude in this country that doesn’t like the hard work that’s part of the sheep business. They’d rather do the 9-to-5 jobs with weekends off. Plus they don’t like dealing with snow storms in their feedlots and muddy yards in the spring. Last winter just about brought us to our knees here at our farm. Also the predator issue is a major thing. We struggle with it here and I know producers in other parts of the country

The two closest processors for our lambs are now either Denver or Detroit. Some of my customers say to me, ‘If you weren’t in business I wouldn’t be in business either’ because there are just fewer options for marketing your animals,” Myers said. He told the visiting students that his feeder lambs produce three to four pounds of wool at 4 to 5 months of age; the ewes shear about 10 pounds of wool but that’s a full year’s growth. His shearing crew comes from three states and does 110 to 150 sheep per day. The students learned that his feeder lambs get trucked in from out West in loads of about 500 lambs per truck. And they stay intact in the same finishing pens

Sheep are indeed a dual purpose animal valued for both its meat and its wool. Sheep are also raised for producing milk, most of which is processed into cheese. The price of sheep milk is 75 to 85 cents per pound, four times higher than the price of dairy milk.

MYERS, from pg. 26A a new experience. It’s about three weeks before I have them on full feed,” he said. A big dog came loping into the yard as Myers talked with the students. He told them this is the dog that guards his sheep. It’s a Great Pyrenees (up to 120 pounds mature weight) that he purchased 12 years ago. He told the students, “coyotes used to kill our lambs and ewes right in these pens even after we installed yard lights for each pen. One night a single coyote killed 34 lambs in one pen. Since we got our dog, we haven’t lost a single sheep to coyotes.” Because of coyotes, it doesn’t work to pasture his ewes on the farm. Instead he rents pasture in North Dakota, about 25 miles west of Bismarck. Last season he shipped 428 ewes to North Dakota and brought 422 back to the farm (about 425 miles one way). Middle Creek Farm lambs one group in January; the next group in February; the third group in March. “We want to be done by April so we can plant corn,” Myers said, but with an ultimate goal of 1,000 ewes they already are making plans to increase the size of their current lambing barn (to handle 300 ewes at one time). They drop about 180 lambs per 100 ewes with a marketing goal of 170 to 175 lambs per 100 ewes. He acknowledges a 200-percent lamb crop is doable but it lessens the longevity of his ewes, “and you’re working with more prolific breeds which tend to bring down your wool quality. Plus you’re often dealing with orphan lambs, bottle-fed lambs and other nuances. It’s a time thing with us.” Most of his feeder lambs are purchased from Dakota, Montana and Wyoming ranchers. “Anymore it’s nearly impossible to buy a load of feeder lambs out of Texas. The ethnic trade is taking nearly all the lambs down there. But we still buy some lambs out of California, even Oregon. Freight has become a bigger issue and because a lot of our competitors have their feedlots in

Faribault Woolen Mills is again a market for Minnesota wool

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Chuck Mooty, new owner of the Faribault (Minn.) Woolen Mills, indicated his facility is a steady market for Minnesota-produced wool. The firm has a major contract with the U.S. Army to supply much of the clothing for U.S. military personnel wherever they are stationed. Until purchased by Mooty and his cousin, this historic business had been shut down for several years. “Now we’ve got 177,000 square feet of floor space; we’ve mended and repaired all the equipment. Today we are the only totally integrated fabric mill in the United States,” Mooty said. Depending upon the availability, price and quality, the firm uses both domestic and imported wool. Exciting for them and the Minnesota wool industry is the fact that Faribault Woolen will be opening a “Made in America” shop in the Mall of America in November. “We’re making every effort to bring back the textile industry to America that had pretty much gone offshore in recent years,” Mooty said. — Dick Hagen, The Land staff writer

Tamarack: Culmination of search for the ‘complete sheep’

THE LAND, NOVEMBER 4, 2011

By TIM KING The Land Correspondent HINCKLEY, Minn. — Janet McNally of Tamarack Lamb & Wool has been working toward a goal these last three decades or more. That goal is what she calls a complete sheep. The result is that she has developed a well-muscled, growthy sheep that averages 2.8 lambs. “Our goal has been to select for a number of traits,” said McNally, who has focused on developing a meat ani-

mal. “We are working for a balanced animal that is high in growth, muscle, milk, numbers born and numbers weaned. Our objective is to have rams that are superior all across the board. It takes a long time. It took me 10 years to get just one ram that was positive in all traits. It’s a slow, tedious process but you are rewarded when you have animals with all those traits.” It actually took longer than 10 years to develop that ram. Before McNally

Linda McNally’s quest for the complete sheep resulted in the Tamarack that averages 2.8 lambs per ewe. could begin using the technology that has brought her close to her goal she had to adjust her thinking. “I set out as a 20-something college student to put together a performance-based seedstock-type flock,” said McNally, who has bachelor’s of science degree in animal science and dairy science and advanced studies in animal breeding. “I was always very commercially oriented but I was also showing Dorsets in the late-’70s and a judge took me aside. He told me I had to decide which way to go. He said that the show ring is a totally different world than the commercial world.” “That was the best piece of advice I ever got. It gave me focus and I gave up on the idea that you can have a show animal and a performance animal. From there it was just following the technology.” While McNally was trying to follow technology that was itself changing, the sheep industry was changing too. “We had polled Dorsets in the ’70s,” she said. “I used them for accelerated lambing and fall laming. I felt it was a great sheep but was not prolific enough. It had a lot of milk but not enough lambs to utilize it well.” She tried some of the Finn-Dorset-Ramboulliet crosses but they didn’t do very well on her pasture-based system. At the time McNally was experimenting with raising lambs largely on pasture. Since then she has refined and improved on what she was learning in the ’70s and ’80s. “I began pasture lambing and rearing lambs on pasture without any supplemental feed in 1991,” she said. “By 2003 I had eliminated grain feeding of any kind altogether.”

When the Finnsheep crosses failed to do well on pasture McNally looked Down Under. She had heard about the Booroola genetics, which originated from an Australian ranch of that name, and she thought they could improve her Dorsets. “I purchased some Booroola-Merino semen,” she said. “I bred my ewes to the Booroola-Merino rams but I backcrossed to Dorsets. My goal was to have a Dorset with a Booroola gene in it.” “It was successful. We have ewes that carry this gene and produce 2.8 lambs. With some good early advice I selected for heavy milk production. As a result I believe today we may have one of the heaviest milking meat type sheep in the country. I’m not comparing them to a dairy breed but for a meat breed I have data that show we may have the heaviest milking ewes there are.” But, as is often the case, when one problem is successfully addressed two more present themselves. McNally has been breeding to eliminate the Merino traits and strengthen the Dorset traits. Neither project has been easy. “So I’ve been selecting for pounds per lamb weaned and I was quite happy with the results,” she said. “But the Dorset industry has changed a lot since the ’70s. It has been increasingly difficult to find a real Dorset any more. By a real Dorset I mean that heavy-muscled, medium-sized sheep that thrives on pasture. I became discouraged and even quit registering my ewes because I couldn’t find rams that were really Dorsets.” In 1991, she enrolled in the National See TAMARACK, pg. 29A


Traits of complete sheep change with industry McNally encourages newcomers to the technology to mentor with an experienced BLUP user. It will help ensure data quality and the usefulness of their results. She said that owners of small flocks may be able to enter a number of years’ data at one time when they enroll.

Quality and quantity of data help ensure that a breeder can move toward their improvement goals, she said. You can learn more about Tamarack Lamb and Wool at their website www.TamarackSheep.com or by calling McNally at (320) 336-9071.

TAMARACK, from pg. 28A Sheep Improvement Program. Her objective was to conduct objective performance testing to further improve her flock. “NSIP quit for a short while in 1995 so, not wanting to stop the performance testing, I went with LambPlan in Australia in 1996,” McNally said. “We’ve been on a BLUP, which is best linear unbiased prediction, since then. It’s an objective way to pull out the environment from your weights and measures. I can determine which animals are genetically superior for growth, for milk, and for carcass traits like loin eye depth and fat depth. I’ve been using this technology since 1991 and it’s been an incredibly powerful tool.” “I take measurements on all the usual stuff, the birth date, the dam, sire, whether it’s a single, twin, or triplet,” she said. “Most people take that. Then I take a 100-day weight. That’s my weaning weight. Then we take a 150-day weight as a post-weaning weight. At 150 days we also measure the loin eye and fat depth through ultra-sound scanning.” “It’s also important to have the location that the lamb was reared in,” McNally said. “If you have a number of pens in the barn it’s important to record which one it was reared in.” She also keeps track of the multiple pasture locations as well. “If you want to enroll in LambPlan they’ll set you up with a software program that you enter your data that you’ve been keeping into and then send it to them. Within two weeks to a month you’ll get a report,” McNally said. “It’s all managed in your software,” she said. “I can get up to 30 different reports. I can rank my animals by my own index which I’ve had developed for me or I can have them ranked by other indexes such as the self-replacing carcass index. There are also wool indexes and indexes for dual-purpose sheep. I can rank your animals according to the index and then go out to the paddock, run them through a chute, and pick out your top producing animals.” As McNally has worked to develop her complete sheep, which she calls a Tamarack, the industry has continued to change. In 2010, NSIP signed a contract to have LambPlan analyze their data. Shortly after the NSIP/LambPlan agreement took place McNally signed up to have her data compared to all the U.S. sheep in the NSIP pool. “What joining the NSIP pool does is that it makes our numbers more meaningful to a potential buyer,” she said. “When they look at a rating number for growth, for example, they can take that number and compare it to another flock. I feel it’s a better service to my buyers for them to know how we stand compared to the other flocks.” McNally encourages others who are breeding seedstock to use NSIP and LambPlan as one of the tools in their herd improvement plan. “With 150 breeding ewes it’s costing me around $700 to $800 per year,” she said. “If you’re selling seedstock your buyers should be happy to compensate you for that. With a strictly commercial flock it’s a little harder to say whether you should use it or just buy rams where the technology has been used.”

Minnesota FFA member named national officer At age 5, Jason Troendle’s father gave him his first fishing pole and the two set out for a day on the banks. He concentrated on his three-footlong Snoopy fishing pole with matching Snoopy bobber and pulled in sunfish after sunfish. Not liking to touch anything slimy, Troendle would have his father take each fish off the line and then bait his hook for his next big catch. “The day my dad gave me my first fishing pole, he epitomized love through not just words and encouragement but in his actions as he baited my hook over and over and

When his first day of fish— Jason Troendle ing came to an end, Troendle’s father told him that if he were going to fish in the future, he’d have to bait his own hook through my love of fishing. and remove his own fish. “It wasn’t “Love and learning. Fishing helped long before I learned that touching to define two core values that would worms and fish wasn’t horrible at all,” guide me through my journey of life.” he said. “I have learned so much Troendle recently took another step on his journey of life. As a conclusion to the 84th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Troendle was elected National FFA secretary for 2011-12. Joining Troendle to serve as national FFA officers for 2011-12 are Ryan W. Best of New Mexico as National FFA president, Kenneth D. Quick Jr. of New York as Eastern Region vice president, Alicia Hodnik of Wisconsin as Central Region vice president, Cain Thurmond of Georgia as Southern Region vice president and Seth Pratt of Idaho as Western Region vice president. Originally from St. Charles, Minn., Troendle is currently a freshman at Bethel University majoring in economics and environmental studies. He is the son of Fred and Sandra Troendle and a member of the St. Charles High School FFA Chapter led by advisers

Craig Will and Willie Lubahn. “Through FFA and agricultural education, I have been able to learn many things,” he said. “I’ve learned it is vital to set short- and longterm goals that can guide me where I want to go and what I want to do. I’ve learned that doing the right things, being committed to myself and others and taking responsibility for my actions are the only ways I will succeed.” For the next year, Troendle and his national officer peers will be the face and spirit of FFA. Collectively, they’ll travel more than 100,000 miles throughout the country as they engage top leaders in business, government and education and lead a host of personal growth and leadership training seminars for FFA members. The team will also help set policies that will shape the future of the National FFA Organization and promote agricultural literacy in general. ••• This article was submitted by the National FFA Organization. Formerly known as Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization provides agricultural education to 540,379 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,489 local FFA chapters throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Being able to mourn will lead me to help others I have felt vulnerable over the years, but there seemed to be those ahead of me to be taken by death. Now I am in the generation soon to be taken. Am I afraid? Yes, I guess it is only natural to be afraid to die. We do have the promises of God to comfort us as his children, but the unknown can be frightening. Perhaps this is the ultimate test of our faith. I was young and am now old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken, or their children begging for bread.

This week’s Back Roads is the work of The Land Correspondent Bonnie Heidtke

Standing guard ometimes a picture, a scene or even a statue can make everything Sclick into place. That’s what happened when Pat Jones Doering was traveling north on Highway 52 last year — and in this case, it was a statue of a soldier. “After Charles passed, and I couldn’t decide what I wanted for a headstone,” she said. “On that day, on the left, there was a statue of a soldier standing there and it just clicked.” She drove into the business but decided they wanted too much money but decided not to give up the quest since her husband of 14 years had served in the U.S. Army during 1966 and 1967 during the Vietnam War. Charles R. Doering died Nov. 26, 2008. A statue would be perfect not only to honor her husband’s service to the country but also to all the 19 veterans resting at the Wykoff, Minn., Cemetery, south on County Road 5. Doering found a 1,300 pound statue at SV & J Lawn Ornaments on Highway 42 between Plainview and Kellogg. With the discount, it ended up to be $1 per pound. With the help of a forklift and her family, it was loaded onto her pickup, only to be hauled around for three days as she needed to talk to the cemetery board to make sure it would be OK to have the statue placed at her husband’s grave. “My brothers Dennis and Bob (Voeltz ) got it all put up for me,” she said. For some four years, Doering’s brother, Dennis has had a similar statue standing in his front yard in Lanesboro, Minn., right across from the Lanesboro High School — and others have followed suit including a church or two throughout Fillmore County. With all the detailing of the gun, the face, the boots and all the nuts and bolts, it looks so real, Doering said. She talked of a sealer that will be eventually applied to the statue. Dennis served as a U.S. Marine at the tail end of the same war (1972 to 1974). Another brother Richard served as a Marine for four years, from 1962 to 1966, with a tour of duty in Vietnam from 1965 to 1966. The statue is for all the veterans in the cemetery, she said. “With all the rows of veterans behind it, look how the statue is like a sentry.” The statue has been manning its post since Oct. 17, 2010.

North Dakota: Richland South Dakota: Deuel, Grant, Roberts All counties listed above were designated natural disaster areas Oct. 25, making all qualified farmers in the designated areas eligible for low-interest emergency loans from the USDA’s Farm Service Agency, provided eligibility requirements are met. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses. The FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. The FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the EM loan program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity. The USDA also has made other programs available to assist farmers and ranchers, including the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program, which was approved as part of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008; the Emergency Conservation Program; Federal Crop Insurance; and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers may contact their local USDA Service Centers for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs. Additional information is also available online at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov. ••• This article was submitted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

THE LAND, NOVEMBER 4, 2011

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has designated 11 counties in Minnesota as natural disaster areas due to the combined effects of excessive rain, excessive heat, high winds, tornadoes and an early fall frost that occurred between April 1 and Sept. 15. Those counties are Big Stone, Chippewa, Grant, Lac qui Parle, Redwood, Renville, Sibley, Stearns, Stevens, Traverse and Wright. “Minnesota producers can continue to count on the USDA to provide emergency assistance during difficult times,” said USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack. “America’s farmers and rural communities are vitally important to our nation’s economy, producing the food, feed, fiber and fuel that continue to help us grow and out-compete the rest of the world. President Obama and I are committed to using the resources at our disposal to reduce the impact of this disaster on Minnesota producers and help to get those affected back on their feet.” Farmers and ranchers in the following counties in Minnesota also qualify for natural disaster assistance because their counties are contiguous. Anoka, Benton, Brown, Carver, Cottonwood, Douglas, Hennepin, Kandiyohi, Le Sueur, Lyon, McLeod, Meeker, Morrison, Murray, Nicollet, Otter Tail, Pope, Scott, Sherburne, Swift, Todd, Wilkin and Yellow Medicine. Farmers and ranchers in the following counties in North Dakota and South Dakota also qualify for natural disaster assistance because their counties are contiguous.

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.
