“Where Farm and Family Meet”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a package of technology enhancements from the Farm Service Agency that include web access for handheld and smartphone users, as well as a more efficient and timely option for receiving news and critical program information. The FSA site is accessible through any device that connects to the internet. The mobile site organizes the information on the website in a way that makes for easy reading on a small, hand-held screen. It does not require screen adjustments or constant scrolling and panning across the information. In addition to the mobile website, FSA is now offering farmers and ranchers a more efficient and timely option for receiving critical program information. Such things as eligibility requirements, deadlines and related information can be accessed through an electronic news service hosted by GovDelivery. By signing up for free online communications through GovDelivery, farmers and ranchers can receive news, via e-mail, directly to their home or farm office or to their mobile devices — allowing them to receive immediate notification of farm program news that is pertinent to their agricultural operation.

better prices shouldn’t be too hard. After all, I found the answers so how hard could it be? Very hard, evidently, because at the recently concluded Cattle Industry Convention the most-discussed checkoff topic was a doubling of the $1-perhead fee, not whether the program actually worked. The checkoff’s chief contractor, the NCBA, did brag at the convention that it would work hard to “eliminate the livestock title” in the 2012 farm bill and to permanently kill COOL, country of origin labeling, for all beef sold in the United States. Either action, if successful, is counter to any — however meager — effort by the checkoff to improve the bottom line of American cattle ranchers and feeders. As is the NCBA-endorsed Feb. 13 effort by 31 U.S. senators to push the White House to approve rules that would ease American beef imports. Read the full letter as a PDF on Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley’s website at http://goo.gl/5MiQ4. So, even as U.S. cattlemen continue to pay the $1per-head — and maybe $2-per-head — checkoff , the number of cattle, cattlemen and American beef consumption per capita continue to fall while the checkoff’s key contractor, the NCBA, gets wealthier, bigger and works harder against ’em.

Agriculture represents a record-breaking calendar year for farm exports, demonstrating — once again — that American agriculture remains a bright spot in our nation’s economy.

lion over the previous record set in calendar year 2010. Total agricultural exports for calendar year 2011 were a robust $136.3 billion. “These figures indicate how demand for the American brand of agriculture continues to soar worldwide, supporting good jobs for Americans across a variety of industries such as transportation, renewable energy, manufacturing, food services and on-farm employment. During the past three years, the U.S. farm sector has continued to support and create jobs on a consistent basis, strengthening an American economy U.S. agriculture is that’s built to last.

American agriculture continues to apply the latest in technology and achieve a nearly unparalleled level of productivity. In fact, U.S. agriculture is the second-most productive sector of our economy in the past few decades outside of information technology. “Exports of almost all major U.S. commodities rose in calendar year 201l, helping us to reach President Obama’s goal of doubling all U.S. exports by the end of 2014. Grains were the biggest contributor to the overall record, reaching an all-time high of $37.7 billion, a $9.2 billion increase over 2010. Cotton experienced the biggest year-to-year increase, up 44 percent from 2010, reaching a record $8.5 billion. Dairy and pork exports also set records in 2011, reaching $4.8 billion and $6 billion respectively. “Another success story is U.S. beef exports. Last year, the United States exported an all-time high of $5.4 billion worth of beef and beef products, surpassing the previous record by more than $1.6 billion. The volume of shipments also surpassed the 2003 levels, the last year before a detection of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in Washington state disrupted U.S. trade. The return to pre-2003 levels marks an important milestone in the USDA’s steadfast efforts to open and expand international markets. Despite this progress, restrictions continue to constrain exports to many of our key markets and we remain fully committed to breaking down those trade barriers. “There was more good news for U.S. beef exporters when United Arab Emirates officials issued a decree on Jan. 24 liberalizing imports of U.S. beef by eliminating age restrictions. The expansion of U.S. beef access to UAE — one of the largest markets for U.S. beef in the Middle East — underscores the tenacity of the Obama administration to improve our trade relationships, expand export opportunities and strengthen an American economy that’s built to last.” The latest export data is available via the Global Agricultural Trade System at www.fas.usda.gov/data.asp. ❖

Message from ISU Ag Dean Wendy Wintersteen poverty and hunger. The advice we provided to AgriSol was grounded in the lessons learned — and the partnerships forged — in rural Uganda. The impact our Center for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods has had in transforming lives of rural Ugandans has been extraordinary. We cannot be prouder of the efforts of our faculty, students and Ugandan partners. Our students themselves have been transformed as they’ve experienced the world through the eyes of others and taken classroom information into a practical global setting. Thank you for sharing comments and questions to me. Also, thanks to those who expressed support and encouragement for the College’s goals and mission. I have appreciated your feedback and thoughts.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Editor’s note: The following is a statement issued Feb. 10 from Wendy Wintersteen, dean of the Iowa State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, regarding ISU’s relationship with AgriSol Energy’s project in Tanzania. This week I notified AgriSol Energy that the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences would no longer serve in an advisory capacity to its planning for its proposed project in Tanzania. I ended the college’s advising role because much of our time and energy has been directed at countering misrepresentations about why and how we were involved. It has not been directed at what originally compelled us to explore program development in Tanzania — the role agricultural education can play in helping small farmers and families struggling against

Letter: Who is actually representing American values? To the Editor: People on the right criticize Alan Guebert on his “liberal bias.” I am sure these same fair, open-minded individuals also criticize Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and others of that ilk for their “conservative bias.” Guebert apparently does not represent American values — being a Missouri Synod Lutheran, good family man, and lives in a rural Illinois area close to his place of birth. Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, does represent conservative values, living in a Florida penthouse, is fat, smokes cigars, has been divorced many times, and has been convicted of buying and using illegal drugs. Why are conservative leaders always such hypocrites? Why are they always forgiven by the people who blindly follow them? President Obama got us out of one war, Iraq; is close to getting us out of another war, Afghanistan; and prevented us from getting into another war, Libya. He killed Osama bin Laden and has almost completely destroyed al-Qaida. His foreign policy has been extremely successful and is not being challenged by Republican presidential candidates. Domestically, President Obama saved the American car industry, saved the American banking system, and prevented the recession from turning into a depression. Money borrowed to the banks and automobile

companies has been almost completely repaid. Republican opposition has prevented President Obama from completely getting America out of the recession, but progress is being made. All of the problems President Obama faced were caused by the conservative policies and mismanagement of eight years of George Bush. It will take more than four years to repair the damage.

OPINION

What do the Republicans have to offer? They have two candidates. The first is Mitt Romney, a multimillionaire who pays a tax rate lower than the average American, has a substantial part of his wealth in overseas accounts, and made his money by dismantling companies in distress, selling off the pieces for profit, and firing American workers. The second is Newt Gingrich, the for-

mer Speaker of the House who was kicked out of his own party, fined $300,000 for ethics violations, made millions lobbying, been married three times, and was having an affair with a staffer while he was impeaching President Clinton for having an affair. Is this the best the Republicans have? What a joke. Marv Jensen Kensington, Minn.

Letter: Let private sector produce jobs To the Editor: I’ve been listening to the Republican candidates debate about their opponents’ weaknesses, such as how many wives or traveling companions they have. These certainly attest to the morals of some running for public office and should come out before the election. But these really aren’t dealing with the problems our country is facing at the present time. It’s hard to find a perfect candidate. I only know of two perfect people. When Mitt Romney released his tax records, they related to the biggest problem that we have in the United States today: unemployment. He is a candidate who had given jobs to over 100,000 people. He did it without asking for a taxpayer subsidy. Venture capitalists like him include

Warren Buffett, the second-richest man in the United States. They buy failing businesses and get them going again. Contrast this with President Obama, who doled out more than $500 million in our tax dollars to Solyndra. They employed about 1,000 people for a year and then went bankrupt. That is $500,000 per job invested. Or the charade when they rescued General Motors by giving them a big loan so they could close several plants in the United States and build four new ones; three of them in China. You and I, the taxpayers, are going to pay

the bill, while someone else receives the benefits. Can government produce jobs on taxpayers’ borrowed money? My vote will go to letting the private sector produce the jobs. Under the free enterprise system, we should have the right to start any business we wish. If we are successful we should keep the profit, and if we are not successful we have the duty to absorb the loss. The taxpayers should not have to pay the losses. Al Schumann Eyota, Minn.

Letter: Rep. shouldn’t work against local control To the Editor: Most people in Dodge County, Minn., will be surprised to know that one of the first bills taken up at the State Capitol this year would weaken township local control. What is worse is that my legislator, Rep. Duane Quam, is a co-author of the bill. House File 389 would give outside corporate interests the upper hand when they want to push unexpected and harmful developments into our communities. It weakens the right of townships, counties and cities to say “no” to projects that could harm the community. As a lifelong Dodge County resident, I know that my community is better off with strong local control. When a New Jersey investor wanted to build an industrial mega-dairy in Ripley Township, my neighbors and I were concerned. We knew it would be bad for the community. Because we had strong local control our township had a say. We put an interim ordinance in place and then enacted a common sense limit on how

large a feedlot can be in our township. But Rep. Quam’s bill would have prevented our townships from having a say. His bill says if a project submits a permit application then it is exempt from the interim ordinance. The problem is neighbors and township officials often don’t even learn about a project until the permit is submitted. So if Rep. Quam’s bill passes by time the community learns about a project it will be too late to do anything. That is wrong! Minnesotans value strong local democracy that favors community rights over corporate rights. We didn’t send legislators up to the Capitol to weaken local control and push legislation for corporate special interests. The issue is simple. Minnesotans value strong township rights and Rep. Quam should too. He should drop his support of House File 389. Lois Nash Land Of A Thousand Winds Dodge Center, Minn.

By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent One hundred and fifty years ago the United States was involved in its great Civil War. Many Minnesota men were off fighting in Virginia and Tennessee. But all was not quiet back home. Minnesotans were involved in their own kind of civil war, a fight between settlers, U.S. army soldiers and the Dakota Indians. It is known as the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862. This summer Brown County, scene of much of the fighting, is recognizing the 150th anniversary of the conflict with numerous events. “We are commemorating the people who died in that war,” said Bob Burgess, director of the Brown County Historical Society, which has offices at the Society’s museum in New Ulm. “Many relatives of those people are still around.” The reasons for the conflict are complex. The Dakota had grievances about broken promises by the U.S. government, shortages of food, dishonest agents and a callous trader who remarked that if they were hungry, they could “eat grass.” That remark coupled with a delay in goods and cash due to the Dakota may have been the most immediate cause. Whatever specific causes might have sparked the uprising by the Dakota, an underlying factor, Burgess said, was the clash of two cultures — the dominant U.S. culture that was pressing against the native Dakota culture.

We are commemorating the people who died in that war. Many relatives of those people are still around. — Bob Burgess The Dakota themselves were divided. Only a small number chose to take up arms, thinking the U.S. army was busy elsewhere and this was an opportunity to take back their land. Others refused to fight and even helped to warn and protect settlers. Brown and Renville counties, where loss of life was greatest, were largely German settlers who had lived on friendly terms with the Dakota. Milford Township, in northern Brown County along the Cottonwood River, was on the eastern edge of the Lower Sioux Reservation. Surprise attacks on Aug. 18 at the beginning of the fiveweek war killed over 50 settlers, the highest death rate of any township. New Ulm had less than 1,000 residents, but swelled to 2,000 as refugees streamed into town. While many buildings were destroyed, people fought off attacks on Aug. 19 and Aug. 23, with See ANNIVERSARY, pg. 9A

A pocket guide designed by Purdue Extension to be an in-field reference for corn and soybean producers is now available. The 2012 Corn and Soybean Field Guide allows farmers to quickly analyze trouble spots in their fields. The guide is updated annually and is full of information and photographs to help diagnose and manage problems such as weeds, diseases and insects. Its 320 pages cover crop development, nutrient deficiencies, planting decisions, soil fertility and herbicide injuries. The information can be used throughout the growing season — from planting to harvest. The 2012 updates include new nitrogen fertilizer recommendations. The guides also can now be purchased in single or bulk quantities through Purdue Extension’s “The Education Store” at www.the-education-store.com Producers who use the guide to help manage pest problems and apply appropriate amounts of fertilizer for deficiencies cannot only produce top yields but also save money, said Corey Gerber, director of Purdue’s Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center. The Corn and Soybean Field Guide has been in production since 1988. According to Gerber, the guide is applicable to all regions of the United States and around the world. Individual copies are $7, or a box of 25 copies is $157.50. They can be ordered online at the web address above or by telephone at 888-EXT-INFO (398-4636). They usually ship within two business days. ❖

The BCHS is confining its remembrance to the war as it was fought in Brown County. They are compiling narratives and oral histories of about 1,200 people. They actually have files on about 5,700 families who lived in the area in 1862. “We’re finding out that many of the settlers left and never came back,” Burgess said. The government had told people it was OK to settle here, without providing protection. “Some came because they had relatives. But they were just caught in the middle.” The BCHS is part of a large group of individuals and organizations who are planning or participating in some way. It includes county commissioners, representatives from towns, townships, and county libraries, German-Bohemian Heritage Society, Junior Pioneers of New Ulm and Vicinity (who are direct descendants of the founders of New Ulm), Hermann Monument Society, Turner Hall, New Ulm Battery, veterans groups, among others.

U.S.-Dakota War anniversary

Describing the conflict a daunting task for historians By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press NEW ULM, Minn. — As Bob Burgess and his staff began preparing an exhibit on the 150th anniversary of the Dakota-U.S. War, they realized their reach was going to exceed their grasp. “As you delve into this, it’s so complex. We had to throttle back our appetite for presentation of the war because of the scope. It was so massive,” said Burgess, director of the Brown County Historical Society in New Ulm. As the anniversary approaches — it began Aug. 17, 1862, when four young Dakota killed five settlers — historians, the public and the Dakota struggle with how to portray and mark the events, which resulted in the mass execution of 38 Dakota in Mankato in December of that year. In Brown County, which was at the heart of the battles, including a siege at New Ulm, Burgess said they are focusing on the settlers who died and fought as well as the stories of the Dakota who were involved. In the end, he said, the goal is to gather and display as much information as possible about the complex war’s effects on Brown County. “It’s important that all the sides be included. I could list 12, maybe 14 reasons for how the war started. I

There was a lot of concern. If they passed New Ulm, (the fight) would go to Nicollet and Blue Earth counties. — Darla Gebhard don’t think you try to spoon feed anything. People have to learn the information and decide for themselves why the war started,” Burgess said. He said as interest grows, more families have come forward with stories and mementos of their ancestors who fought or died. For example, the museum has been loaned a cartridge box from a soldier from a Minnesota militia group involved in the war with the Dakota. “We also have buildings in town from that time. We have the Forster Building, where there’s still the place where a bullet tore through the wall. The Kiesling House also is still here,” Burgess said. The two structures were outside the barricaded downtown where women and children had taken cover and were used as positions to keep the attacking Dakota from overrunning the barricade. Burgess said they’ve also strived to learn all they can about Dakota who were in the county at the time. They’ve

identified 14 Dakota who were in the county, although many more would have been involved. The exhibit will include a touch screen with more than 1,000 faces on it, allowing people to touch it to see their biographies. There are also stories being gathered from Dakota at Sisseton, S.D., about Dakota scouts who scouted for the U.S. Army during the war. There are stories of other Dakota who warned and protected settlers and stories of those who fought. “There are (Dakota) family members reviewing what we’re doing. They have direct lineage to those Dakota scouts who worked for Sibley and they have family members who fought. You have this very complex situation and you stir it up, and it gets complicated,” Burgess said. Darla Gebhard is a research archivist at the museum whose greatgrandfather defended New Ulm. She said the battles there were important. “There was a lot of concern. If they

passed New Ulm, (the fight) would go to Nicollet and Blue Earth counties.” The society’s website — located at www.browncountyhistorymn.org — has more information and a downloadable booklet about the events. The Blue Earth County Historical Society has chosen not to create a special exhibit to mark the 150th anniversary. (A portion of their permanent museum display describes the war.) “We’re not doing a physical exhibit. It’s not like, ‘Let’s have a party over this,’” said Jessica Potter, director of the Historical Society. The society has started monthly events bringing in Dakota speakers to talk about various aspects of the Dakota culture. “We are focusing on the culture. My goal is to raise the understanding,” Potter said. “We can maybe have a civil discussion.” The society also is planning to install a plaque in Reconciliation Park, located near the library in Mankato and the site of the hanging. It will list the names of the 38 Dakota executed. Potter said the society wants to form a larger group to look at possibly adding other monuments or memorials in the area. The Mankato Free Press is a sister publication to The Land under The Free Press Media. ❖


U.S.-Dakota War question: Is it ... or isn’t it?

Wood believed to be from 1862 scaffold stashed away

Scaffold timber really from bridge, historical society says

Historical society not planning to display beam

New research challenges decades of assumptions

By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press A beam that newspapers from 1881 and 1927 describe as part of the gallows used in executing 38 Dakota Indians in Mankato has for decades been stored away. The director of the Blue Earth County Historical Society said she doesn’t intend to display it as the 150th anniversary of the U.S.-Dakota War is marked this summer. “We are not trying to hide it. We just don’t have the physical capacity to display it,” said Jessica Potter.

“We have 24,000 objects and we can’t have them all on display in a 3,000-foot museum. And it’s an object that does not have interpretation with it that will be positive to everyone who sees it. We have to be sensitive to that.”

By DAN LINEHAN Mankato Free Press A timber beam held in storage by the Blue Earth County (Minn.) Historical Society is not part of the scaffold used to hang 38 Dakota Indians in 1862, Executive Director Jessica Potter said Feb. 10. That conclusion came after Potter labored the first week of February on a historical mystery: Does the beam sitting in the back of the historical society’s collection room match the description in a 1927 newspaper story? By Feb. 10, her answer was clear: No. There is no smoking gun. But there are enough differences — in dimensions, spacing of notches and perhaps type of wood — that Potter is questioning decades of assumptions about the timber. “As long as I’ve been here, the legend was that this was the scaffold timber,” she said.

Instead, she believes it may be part of an 1856 bridge built by the military and donated sometime after 1931, when it was replaced with concrete. A short description of such a timber is just two places away from the scaffold in a log book of donations from the 1930s. The hanging, which remains the largest mass execution in American history, looms especially large this year, the 150th anniversary of the U.S.-Dakota War. Not the t imber After a Free Press story ran Feb. 5 about the beam not being displayed, Potter took a tape measure to the weathered piece of wood. (That story can be found at the left.) First, it is about 19 feet long, not 24 feet as it’s described in a 1927 story in which a reporter viewed the timber as it was kept in the basement of the Ben Pay Hotel. While it could have been cut since then, Potter said the ends show that any cut, if made, was not done recently. That story and others describe the timber as about a foot square, though it is somewhat smaller. It is about 7.5 inches tall and about 9 or 10 inches See CHALLENGE, pg. 12A

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

She said they also don’t have a “solid research base to have it on display,” and said the object would bring strong emotions.

Potter said the authenticity of the timber hasn’t been verified. But there are newspaper articles that describe the whereabouts of the timber soon after the war. (See story at right with new information about authenticity of the beam.) The timber came from prominent Mankato businessman and Civil War Home Guard Cmdr. John F. Meagher. He reportedly bought the timber in an auction held by the Army soon after the hangings and used it as a beam in his hardware store. After a later fire in the building, Meagher shipped the beam by train to the University of Minnesota. In the Nov. 24, 1881, issue of the University of Minnesota newspaper, the Ariel, a story told of Meagher giving the timber to the university’s museum. Meagher sent a letter to the university that said in part: “It is a rather hard looking relic and you may be disappointed when you see it, but I can assure you it did the business and completely civilized the Sioux Indians ... “The notches around one side of this were to accommodate the ropes ...” Meagher’s letter said.

Potter: Actual beam may have been lost in flooding

BEAM, from pg. 11A The timber was held by the university until 1927 when it was turned over to the Blue Earth County Historical Society as described in a Dec. 24, 1927, Free Press story. (See related article on Page 13A.) The controversy over which historic objects to display has come to the forefront with sensitive nature of the war and the nation’s largest mass execution in Mankato. The state Historical Society has the noose used to hang Chief Chaska in storage and said it does not plan to put it on public view when it opens an exhibit on the war, saying they don’t want it to become “the noose exhibit.” For Darla Gebhard, a research archivist and librarian at the Brown County Historical Society, keeping compelling history out of reach of the public goes against the very nature of historical societies’ obligations. “Personally, I know that any artifact here, that anyone could come in and view it. Even if it’s not on display, we certainly take it out,” Gebhard said. The Blue Earth County (Minn.) Histori“That’s just freedom of informa- cal Society has no plans to display tion.

She is angry that the historical society’s collection includes the noose, as well as dolls and other items soldiers collected during punitive raids following the war. “All these things need to be in Dakota hands; they have no right to them. It’s just another atrocity that they even have these objects taken off the killing fields. ... “The idea that they hold indigenous peoples’ things and tell us it’s for the public’s good is outrageous,” she said. Spock insists state historians are trying to be sensitive to Dakota concerns and acknowledges problems in the historical society’s past. The remains of Dakota leader Little Crow, in the collection for more than a century, were finally turned over in 1971 under pressure and buried in Flandreau, S.D. “We’re not in the habit of thinking of our activities as being anything other than virtuous, so when somebody says, ‘You shouldn’t have this, it doesn’t belong to you,’ it kind of cuts to the core or our values,” Spock said. The history center invited Dakota and settlers’ descendants to join separate panels to respond to plans for the anniversary exhibit and events. They showed the groups the noose and other items in January, but refused a Star Tribune request to photo-

cal society’s archives. A doctor’s wife, Sarah Wakefield, had testified that Chaska protected her and her children when they were taken captive. But Chaska wound up on the gallows anyway. A soldier named J.K. Arnold stole the noose right after the hanging and hid it for seven years, according to his letter in the archives, violating orders to ship all the nooses to Washington. “It’s sitting in there as a trophy and we want it returned along with the other 37 nooses that are somewhere in Washington,” said Melvin Lee Houston, 59, of the Santee reservation in Lindy, Neb. His great-great-great-grandfather was among the 38 hanged and his ancestors were among thousands of Dakota forced out of Minnesota. He hopes all the nooses will be found and given to Dakota elders this year for a Wiping of the Tears ceremony. History center officials resist giving up artifacts, saying it’s their job to protect historical evidence, such as the noose, for future generations. Rep. Urdahl has introduced resolutions to pardon Chaska and to urge Congress to repeal the Dakota Exclusion Act. Even those efforts have aroused controversy. Waziyatawin and some other Dakota oppose the pardon as an attempt to “assuage white guilt” by clearing a Dakota who helped a white woman instead of the other 37 hanged warriors, who she says were patriotic Minnesotans protecting their homeland from intruders. “There’s so much division in the Dakota community,” Brown said. “It’s not about blaming or shaming or guilting. Right now, it’s about allowing the truth through history to be acknowledged and recognized.” This article was originally published in the Jan. 29 issue of the Star Tribune in Minneapolis.

Museum offers glimpse of the old world, inside and out By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent Of all of the displays of county history that the Brown County Historical Society has in its New Ulm, Minn., museum, one of the most striking is the building itself. The exterior makes you think you are back in Europe. Darla Gebhard Bob Burgess “They wanted a German look,” said Research Librarian Darla Gebhard. “It is not a replica of any building in Germany, but was inspired by buildings from the German lowlands.” The steep roof and stepped gables are similar to buildings seen in the German state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), and in the lowland countries of the Netherlands and Belgium that border Germany. Adding to the architecture is the striking materials used. Quoting from the Society’s website, “the exterior of the structure has alternating courses of variegated deep red rough brick and gray-white terra cotta stone (a manufactured concrete stone).” The building served as New Ulm’s post office from 1910 to 1976. When the post office moved to a new location, the city of New Ulm and Brown County purchased the building. The BCHS became a third partner to renovate the building for a museum. When the renovation was complete, the city gave its interest to the county. The BCHS rents the space for

remnants that keep its former use alive. Gebhard told how a postal inspector would arrive unannounced, enter by a back door, and take an iron spiral staircase to the attic where there were several peep windows through which an inspector could watch the employs. Staff members can point visitors to a segment of the spiral staircase that was preserved, and to one of the peep windows that was salvaged and installed in a wall overlooking the entry. The light fixtures are also original. While not open to public viewing, Director Bob Burgess pointed out remnants of a terrazzo floor in the basement, and a shower drain. Early in the 20th century mail delivery was dirty and muddy. This was a place for the carriers to shower and clean up. When you are done being fascinated by the building, you can look at the exhibits. The first floor is a display of Century Farms of Brown County and of the changes in farming through the decades. The mezzanine has artifacts of children’s writer and illustrator Wanda Gag, a New Ulm native; a display of historic quilts and sewing machines, with one contemporary quilt; and the Ulm Room, filled with historic furniture brought from New Ulm’s sister city of Ulm, Germany. The third floor is an exhibit on the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862. That exhibit is undergoing a complete renovation in preparation for the 150th anniversary of the war and will reopen in August. The museum is located at the intersection of Broadway and Center Street. Check their website at browncountyhistorymn.org for hours and other information. There is a modest entrance fee. ❖

drought monitoring. The group has developed a website showing their drought-monitoring maps; the site will soon go public and be linked to the U.S. Drought Portal at www.drought.gov. The work has advanced enough that the team wants to expand its drought monitoring to Mexico, Canada and Central and South America. They are mapping parts of Africa — including the Horn of Africa region, where drought has caused famine in Somalia — with data from European Union meteorological satellites. Anderson recently attended a conference in Ethiopia on soil moisture and drought monitoring to help subsistence farmers cope with increased weather variability. Scientists, Ethiopian government officials and disaster-aid groups participated in the conference and showed great interest in the new water-use and drought-early-warning information that can be provided by satellite systems. Use of ET for drought mapping ET consists of the water evaporated from soil and plant surfaces and the water vapor that escapes, or transpires, through plant leaf pores (stomata) as the plants absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. Anderson and Kustas and colleagues have simplified the estimation of ET by using measurements of land-surface See DROUGHT, pg. 18A

Every month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Center for Climate Prediction has a drought briefing by teleconference to identify the latest drought areas in North America. Agricultural Research Service scientists Martha Anderson and Bill Kustas are hoping that in a year or so, data from their computer model/satellite package will give evapotranspiration — known as ET — maps a seat at that briefing. With funding from NOAA and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, they have developed a modeling system that NOAA will use to generate ET estimates over the continental United States. NOAA will evaluate these ET products to see how well they work for operational hydrologic and meteorological modeling. One application of the remotely sensed ET maps will be to monitor drought over the United States from a satellite’s perspective. Anderson is a physical scientist and Kustas is a hydrologist; both are at the ARS Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory in Beltsville, Md. Next year, North America; Someday, the world Anderson and Kustas, along with NOAA colleagues Chris Hain and Xiwu Zhan, are also mapping ET over the entire globe at a coarser spatial resolution, working toward a day when the maps can be used worldwide for

Drought defined by deviation from normal dryness DROUGHT, from pg. 17A temperature obtained from weather and research satellites. With this data, they can infer soil moisture without needing data on precipitation, soil characteristics or anything else below the Earth’s surface. Anderson said that, “generally speaking, a cooler land surface is an indicator that ET is higher. Evaporation cools surfaces, so lower surface temperatures are typically associated with wetter soil and greater ET rates. In contrast, stressed vegetation exhibits elevated leaf temperatures, which can also be detected from space.” Their ET maps can discriminate rivers, lakes, irrigated cropland and wetlands based on the cooler surface temperatures. These maps are remarkably similar to those created by more complex hydrologic computer models requiring significantly more input data — which is often not readily available. ALEXI infers soil moisture Anderson and Kustas feed the remotely sensed temperature data into their computer model, ALEXI (Atmosphere-Land Exchange Inverse), and it mathematically partitions the composite measurements into soil and plant temperatures. In turn, the equations use these component temperatures to make separate estimates of soil evaporation and plant transpiration. Soil evaporation estimates allow inferences about soil moisture in the first several inches of topsoil. Plant transpiration estimates do the same for soil moisture in the root zone, which can extend down to three feet or more, depending on plant type. Information about root-zone soil moisture is critical to farmers because it helps them decide how much and when to irrigate or how drought is likely to affect yields in dryland agricul-

tural areas. These soil-moisture estimates can also be integrated into hydrological models to estimate total water losses and gains, accounting for factors such as runoff, drainage and ground-water recharge. Since 2000, ALEXI has been running daily, estimating ET over the continental United States. ALEXI’s accuracy has been shown to be within about 10 percent of measurements by surface- and tower-based instruments. Dry is normal in the west Anderson explains that drought is monitored by detecting anomalies, so she and colleagues want to add ET anomalies to the monitoring process. “It is dry in the American West, so that’s their normal, while greater moisture is the norm in the East,” Anderson said. “We’re looking for what is abnormal for a region, either drier or wetter than usual.” To do this, they created an Evaporative Stress Index by computing anomalies in the ratio of the “actual ET” estimated by ALEXI to the “potential ET,” which is the maximum ET that could be expected for a given region. This ratio gives a value from 0 to 1, with 0 indicating very dry conditions and 1 indicating wet or ample moisture for soil and plants. In a typical year, the ratio will be smaller in the West than in the East, but significant deviations from the typical ESI values in various regions provide a measure for detecting drought conditions. “Drought detection is always in terms of percentage deviation from the norm in dryness or wetness for a region. In other words, See DROUGHT, pg. 19A

energy and temperatures from both the soil and vegetation components of the land surface. ALEXI is built on this two-source framework, but extends its application to a regional scale. Norman, Kustas and colleagues worked for more than two decades to develop the surface temperature-based techniques for estimating ET. But, Kustas said, it is Anderson “who has carried ALEXI from a research tool to an operational system that can serve as a practical tool for ET and drought monitoring.” Evaluating ALEXI model formulations Since 1987, there have been studies evaluating different modeling components used in ALEXI as part of largescale remote-sensing field experiments throughout North America. These studies have yielded a vast reservoir of data across various landscapes, from desert to tall-grass prairie to crop fields, forests and bare land. Many of these campaigns focused on testing microwave sensors that detect Earth’s natural microwave emissions from land for direct measurements of soil moisture. Wade Crow, an ARS physical scientist at Beltsville, is researching ways to blend microwave with thermal data currently used by Anderson and Kustas, looking to take advantage of the best features of each method. In more recent field studies, they tested their thermal technique over cotton fields in the Texas Panhandle. They have also applied it in the Everglades of southern Florida, working with the South Florida Water Management District. Both regions are examples of areas where water managers and farmers urgently need the type of daily high-resolution ET and soil moisture availability estimates the ALEXIsatellite package promises to deliver. For the Texas remote-sensing campaign, Kustas and Anderson worked with Paul Colaizzi, Prasanna Gowda and Steve Evett to evaluate and refine major remote-sensing-based ET models for arid and semi-arid regions. Colaizzi and Gowda are agricultural engineers, and Evett is a soil scientist in the ARS Soil and Water Management Research Unit in Bushland, Texas. The experiment, led by Evett and Kustas, involved four ARS labs and several universities. Weighing lysimeters at Bushland measure crop water use through changes in the weight of 100-squarefoot blocks of soil perched on underground scales. These measurements

DROUGHT, from pg. 18A will there be more or less rainfall than usual,” Kustas said. “This index tells us whether there is more or less ET than usual.” Cross-checking their methods The scientists use coarse-resolution data from geostationary satellites to screen for drought stress and then take a closer look at stressed areas with high-resolution data from other satellites. Geostationary satellites appear motionless because they orbit at 22,000 miles above Earth’s equator. These satellites take snapshots of land-surface temperature conditions every five to 15 minutes. Scientists at ARS, NASA and Johns Hopkins University are testing the drought-mapping software side by side with traditional hydrologic mapping to see if the best parts of each method could be combined to improve regional waterbudget estimates. Currently, they are comparing the two techniques to see how well each one estimates water usage along the full length of the Nile River. “We want to see how closely the results from those two methods match, as a cross check,” Anderson said. So far, maps drawn from the two methods look similar, but the remote-sensing approach gives better spatial detail, and it highlights regions of enhanced ET in irrigated and wetland areas that hydrologic models miss. The ALEXI model mainly uses data from meteorological satellites, but it also receives data on vegetation cover from NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites. ALEXI is coupled with a model that simulates the interactions of the lowest part of the atmosphere with Earth’s surface. These interactions affect soil evaporation and plant transpiration. For example, if the lower atmosphere is dry and the land surface wet, ET will increase. Two sources are better than one Anderson was a researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the 1990s, working with John Norman, a professor with expertise in soilplant-atmosphere computer modeling and agricultural remote sensing. Anderson joined Norman in working with Kustas on developing ALEXI. Kustas said that “at a time when the ability to estimate ET using remotely sensed surface temperature was being discredited, Norman came up with a new approach, a unique two-source modeling framework, that converted many skeptics.” The two-source model estimates contributions of water,

Satellite technology aids forecast of crop yields DROUGHT, from pg. 19A provide “ground truth” data for testing ET estimates from ALEXI and other models. “The ALEXI model allowed us to scale these point measurements up to regional water-use estimates,” Kustas said. Typically, regional ground-based networks of ET weather stations are too sparse to support operational decision making. Consequently, satellite imagery is likely to be the only viable source for routine ET estimates. Evett sees many future uses for satellite remote sensing of ET, particularly for water-district management and policy-making on water issues. Irrigation scheduling from space In the long run, Anderson and Kustas hope to provide local ET data for use in irrigation scheduling, just as is currently done from field weather stations. But the data from satellites would be for individual farm fields, rather than from the nearest field station, so it would more accurately reflect local conditions. This will be especially helpful in places where there are no extensive networks of field weather stations, such as Africa. Still, getting routine ET estimates for individual fields from satellites is laborious at this point, Anderson said. She and Kustas hope to streamline the process for operational use. They’re counting on new satellites with high-resolution thermal sensors to improve the timeliness of satellite imagery. The Thermal Infrared Sensor on the Landsat Data Continuity Mission, scheduled for launch by NASA in January 2013, will be critical to moving toward routine mapping of ET at field scale. More and more uses Besides drought monitoring, water management and irrigation scheduling, uses of the ALEXI/satellite package include crop yield prediction. “If crops

suddenly show stress, we can ask whether that will affect yield, which will depend on the crop and whether it’s in a critical growth stage when drought occurs,” Anderson said. Another use is in weather forecasting. Differences between land and air temperatures have major effects on weather, including spawning convection and thunderstorms. “With five- to 15-minute readings from the geostationary satellites, we can monitor the changes in land and air temperatures as the sun rises. Since heat transfer from the land surface is largest around noon, late morning to early afternoon is when there is the greatest potential for turbulence caused by the temperature difference between land and air,” Anderson said. In addition, remotely sensed ET and soil moisture maps can also be assimilated into meteorological models, potentially improving short-range weather forecasts. John Mecikalski, with the Atmospheric Science Department of the University of Alabama at Huntsville, is using ALEXI heat-flux estimates to eventually forecast where thunderstorms may develop one to six hours in advance. This is likely to improve flood forecasts and the prediction of severe weather outbreaks, as well as have benefits for air travel. Previously with UW-M, Mecikalski was

responsible for developing the prototype data infrastructure to implement ALEXI at continental scales. Link to carbon cycle Anderson said the next generation of ALEXI may also predict carbon fluxes, since there is a close link between Earth’s carbon and water cycles. Both canopy transpiration and CO2 uptake are jointly controlled by leaf stomata, and therefore carbon assimilation and water use by plants can be tightly coupled. By modeling both cycles together, rather than separately, Anderson thinks we can do better at monitoring the nation’s carbon and water budgets. Satellite measurements of land-surface temperature will be a crucial model input, providing valuable spatial information on the health of the crops and other vegetation that regulate water and carbon exchange across the landscape.

Learn about independent foreclosure review Did you face foreclosure in 2009 or 2010? You may be eligible for a free independent review of your case. Independent foreclosure reviews let borrowers who faced foreclosure on their primary residences between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2010, request reviews of their cases if they believe they suffered financial injury as a result of errors in the foreclosure processes of the following servicers: America’s Servicing Co., Aurora Loan Services, Bank of America, Beneficial, Chase, Citibank, CitiFinancial, Citi Mortgage, Country-Wide, EMC, EverBank/Everhome, Freedom Financial, GMAC Mortgage, HFC, HSBC, IndyMac Mortgage Services, MetLife Bank, National City, PNC Mortgage, Sovereign Bank, SunTrust Mortgage, U.S. Bank, Wachovia, Washington Mutual and Wells Fargo.

The reviews will determine whether individuals suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedies due to errors or other problems during their home foreclosure process. The reviews were ordered by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in April 2011 after the federal regulators found unsafe and unsound mortgage servicing and foreclosure practices among these large, federally regulated mortgage servicers. Situations that may have led to financial injury include, but are not limited to: The mortgage balance at the time of the foreclosure action was more than you actually owed; Fees charged or mortgage payments were inaccurately calculated, processed or applied; You were doing everything a modification agreement required but the foreclosure sale still happened; The foreclosure action occurred while you were protected by bankruptcy; and a foreclosure proceeded on a military member in violation of Servicemembers Civil Relief Act protections. More than 4 million letters were mailed to potentially eligible borrowers with request-for-review forms and instructions on how to complete and return them. The form lets you describe what you think went wrong. Simply answer the questions to tell your story, include any additional documents you think relevant and return the form by April 30. If you believe you are eligible and have not received a form, you can request one by calling (888) 9529105, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (ET) and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET).

Farm show rooted in central Minnesota After 45 years the Central Minnesota Farm Show, organized by the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce, is still delivering the goods. The formula is simple: Assemble hundreds of vendors from every corner of the agriculture industry and let both the farming and non-farming communities know about it. The combination results in an average of more than 4,000 visitors for the three-day

event. This year’s Farm Show is scheduled for Feb. 28-March 1 at the River’s Edge Convention Center. Admission to the event is free. The show is coordinated and arranged by the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce Farm Show Committee. Greg Theis, Greg E. Theis Remodeling, chairman for the 2012 show, said the event offers something for anyone

with an interest in the agriculture industry. “Visitors can look for special product offers, entertainment and educational opportunities from a variety of professional vendors,” Theis said. Agricultural meeting grounds Since opening its doors four decades ago, the farm show has been a popular community event for central Minnesota. Serving over a 100-mile radius, the show gives area farmers an opportunity to check out the season’s newest products, as well as socialize with other members of the agriculture industry.

It also allows vendors a rare chance to meet their customers in person. Chad Carlson of Carlson Wholesale in St. Cloud, said the farm show is their main pipeline to the customer. “Most visitors just come to see what’s new,” Carlson said. Customers visit Carlson’s five-booth display to chat with the sales team, pick up new catalogs and comparison shop. Carlson points out that the farm show kicks off the start of the prime time agribusiness season. Farmers browse now and buy later. Come early spring sales start to take off and continue nonstop into fall. Necessary components Much like the machines on display, the agriculture industry depends on a complex network of parts to keep it running smoothly. With so many industry representatives on hand at one time, the farm show clearly illustrates the many components successfully at work. Once again all the pieces are in place for a 2012 show that promises to bring the same level of quality vendors, customers and information that make the farm show a central Minnesota tradition. ❖

Sino-Argentine deal bearish for U.S.

Cash markets struggling

Battle for acres will be intense

The following market analysis is for the week ending Feb. 17. CORN — Corn finished the week on a strong note after a sideways-to-lower trade for the majority of the week. South Korea re-emerged as a buyer twice during the week to keep basis levels firm to encourage farmer selling. Selling has continued to be spotty since farmers have seen these prices previously; however, we were approaching fresh flat price highs as traders headed into a threeday Presidents’ Day weekend. Argentina’s government published their first official crop estimates this week, pegging the corn PHYLLIS NYSTROM crop between 20.5 million metric Country Hedging tons and 22 mmt (U.S. Department St. Paul of Agriculture was 22 mmt last week). Argentina is the secondlargest corn exporter in the world. Harvest there should begin in earnest around the first of March. This smaller-than-expected forecast came at the same time that China and Argentina announced they have come to a sanitary protocol agreement that would allow China to import Argentine corn for the first time ever. This issue isn’t expected to have a major impact in the short run, but could be considered bearish longer term for U.S. exports. Weekly export sales were not a disappointment this week at nearly 40 million bushels, and Mexico accounting for over 40 percent of the total. This is the highest weekly sales number since back in October. The drought in Mexico has kept them at the front of the line looking for U.S. corn. South Korean feed mills were big buyers this week (look for it to be on

February has started out as a struggle for livestock prices. Despite all of the bullishness talked about around the cattle and hog markets over the past few weeks, the actual cash markets are struggling against resistance at higher prices. Over the past several weeks the cash cattle market has seen lower prices as packers have been stingy in their bids trying to recover some of their lost margin. The futures market in turn has failed to move into new highs, showing the overhead resistance that continues near the all-time highs. JOE TEALE The futures market has been Broker setting the price discovery on a Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. weekly basis for the past several months. However, it now looks as if the packers are gaining more control over the price discovery as they hold their bids to the end of the week. It is becoming more evident that the demand for beef product is more dominating than the supply of cattle. This is most evident in the boxed beef movement. Every time the beef cutout moves higher the volume in the boxed beef trade diminishes. When the beef cutout comes down, then the volume in the boxed beef trade begins to increase which solidifies the thought of good resistance at higher prices. It is also apparent that cattle are being held back as weights have increased each week for the last month. With the futures continuing to show premiums in the deferred months, it appears that producers are holding back inventories looking for better prices. Because of this situation, producers should See TEALE, pg. 27A

The 2012 “battle for acres” will be as intense as we have seen in years. With near-record-tight stocks and strong demand, the stakes could not be greater. It will be the market’s job to determine the acreage mix of grain to be planted this spring. When using “benchmark” cost of production numbers, I find corn to be nearly $150 per acre more profitable than soybeans at current prices. I grant that everyone’s numbers will be different and I encourage each of you run your own numbers and compare. With soybeans at nearly a breakeven proposition, why would anyTOM NEHER one plant them? AgStar VP & Team Leader — Grain Industry This is the question that I Rochester, Minn. asked my friend the other night, after watching a local high school basketball game. He made the point about the agronomic benefit of crop rotation and diversification. He also said that he was concerned about the drought that we were experiencing and that soybeans were much more drought-resistant than corn. He pointed out that I am always talking about risk management and that it was good to be diversified. Silently acknowledging his points, I could not help but play the “devil’s advocate.” I countered by suggesting that the new plant genetics in corn would laugh at the dry growing conditions. Furthermore, I pointed out that from a margin management perspective, it made no sense to lock-in a break-even in soybeans, when a tidy profit could be captured with corn. See NEHER, pg. 27A

Brazilian port accident may up U.S. bean demand

Economies hurting all meat demand TEALE, from pg. 26A remain current and use these premiums to their advantage and protect their inventories. Since mid-December after making a low in prices, the hog market has been on an ever so slow recovery. Demand for pork product has been good and has helped stabilize and improve the packer’s need to accumulate live inventory. The supply of hogs has been adequate which has kept the rally in prices from being more impressive. Considering that the pork cutout is less than half

of that of the beef cutout, domestic retail demand seems to be shifting toward the featuring of pork. Couple this with a good export market and the hog market should be able to continue to improve in the weeks ahead. The only caveat to this scenario would be the continued economic conditions here in the United States and abroad which would definitely hurt demand for all meats. Producers should continue to monitor the market, but take advantage of locking inventories on good rallies that produce good premiums in the deferred marketings. ❖

America, destroying at least one of four grain loading legs and possibly two. There was already a hefty lineup to load, which may mean more demand for the United States. Brazilian basis levels are also exploding higher, possibly a record for this time of year. Typically March is the busiest month for grain loading at this port. There was no announcement about how long it will take to repair the damage. Argentine weather is becoming a moot issue, while southern Brazil could use moisture. Argentina’s government lowered their soybean production estimate to 43.5 mmt from 45.0 mmt. Just last week the USDA projection was 48.0 mmt. OUTLOOK: While South American weather is becoming less important, the crop size estimates continue to garner attention, and those numbers are not getting bigger. Boat line-ups in the southern hemisphere and world demand should support the uptrend in soybeans. The $13 level remains a shortterm target for both old and new crop soybeans. Soybeans will need to compete for acres this spring. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending Feb. 17: Minneapolis wheat was the follower, only up 8 cents while Kansas City gained 16 1/2 cents and Chicago 14 cents. March crude oil soared $4.57 higher to close at $103.24 per barrel, heating oil was only up 3/4 cent, gasoline jumped 4 cents higher and natural gas rose 20 3/4 cents. As of mid-afternoon, the Dow was up 163 points for the week at 12,930, the U.S. dollar index was 0.25 points higher, and March gold was up a measly 20 cents for the week.

cents per bushel for the week. SOYBEANS — Soybeans pushed into fresh highs this week on good demand, lower South American production estimates and decent U.S. economic news. All in all, beans had a positive week with the March contract gaining 38 1/2 cents for the week to close at $12.67 1/2 per bushel; November beans closed at $12.62, up 22 1/2 cents for the week. Good demand led by China pushed soybeans to prices not seen since October. March soybeans touched a high of $12.73 1/4 per bushel this week. The Chinese delegation in the United States this week signed an agreement in Des Moines to buy 8.62 mmt of U.S. beans in the coming year, then stopped in Los Angeles and announced another agreement for 3.4 mmt. This brings the total agreement to 12.02 mmt, a new record surpassing last year’s 11.56 mmt agreement. Weekly U.S. export sales were at the low end of expectations at 16 million bushels. Later in the week, a new crop sale of 2.75 mmt and 173,000 mt of old crop U.S. beans to China was announced and thought to be a part of an additional agreement. As reported, this would be the biggest one-day sale to a single destination ever announced. Look for next week’s export sales number to be impressive.

Keep your pencil sharpened NEHER, from pg. 26A My friend noticed the sly grin on my face and he knew that I was just “yanking his chain.” We laughed and agreed that the market had a job to do, in determining the crop acreage mix this spring. He asked if corn was going to go down or would soybeans go up in price to attract more acres.

I told my friend that this was the time of year that I really start to watch the spreads between futures contracts. In corn, I like to watch the July versus the December contract to see the market’s opinion on the relationship between old crop and new crop. In the soybean market, I look to the July contract versus the November for a similar opinion. Finally, I

Currently my spread charts look like the market is favoring corn to go down in price and soybeans to rise in price. Yet we all know that many things can change between now and planting time in the spring. These charts may even look different by the time you read this column. The volatility that we are experiencing in a globalized market creates risk and opportunity in the futures markets.

Three business models drive small-farm growth The agricultural economy in Minnesota is strong, and some of that strength is coming from the growth of small farms. Increased interest in local foods and products is driving that growth. The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines small farms as farms with $250,000 or less in sales of agricultural commodities. The 2007 Census of Agriculture indicates that’s 91 percent of U.S. farms and over half of the land. Most of the growth is in the area of small farms that have sales less than $10,000. Three types of business opportunity have helped create a positive environment for both farmers and people interested in local, healthy foods — farmers markets, other merchandising options and farm-toschool programs. Farmers markets can be a great option for finding locally produced food, as well as adding vitality to a community. They are popping up in rural Minnesota as well as in cities and suburbs. Many farmers markets now accept Farmers Market Nutrition Program food assistance coupons and other assistance vouchers. Other merchandising options include roadside stands, on-farm stores and Community Supported Agriculture programs, in which families purchase a regular share of the foods produced. Farm-to-school programs are also becoming another option for small farm production, and Minnesota is a leader in this area. Farmers are able to work directly with local schools to sell healthy and locally grown produce to the school districts, and can get help through University of Minnesota Extension’s Farm to School resources (www.extension.umn.edu/farm-to-school). The face of the small farms is changing with new farmers, urban farming and recent immigrants.

Dollar cost averaging reduces risk Dollar cost averaging is a technique designed to reduce market risk by purchasing securities at predetermined intervals and set amounts. This system tends to reduce market risk and eliminate some of the guesswork of deciding when to invest, explained Brenda Schmitt, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Family Finance field specialist. Instead of waiting to invest a single lump sum when you feel prices are at a low, you consistently invest smaller amounts over a longer period of time — for example, $100 every month. You first need to decide how much you can invest each month or quarter. Consistency is the key with dollar cost averaging, so make certain you are financially able to invest the selected amount. Choose an investment that you want to hold for five to 10 years or longer. The key to dollar cost averaging is to keep to your schedule regardless of the price of the security. If you are investing a regular amount in a 401(k) or other employer retirement plan via payroll deduction, you are already using dollar cost averaging. With other investing, you can also take advantage of automatic deductions by regularly having contributions deducted from your bank account. This method of investing has a few cautions. The cost of commissions to routinely purchase individual stocks may not make this approach feasible. This means no-load mutual funds that charge no sales fees can be a good choice for dollar cost averaging.

Also, most mutual funds allow you to purchase fractions of shares. With dollar cost averaging you still need to monitor your investments, re-examining the stocks or mutual funds to see if they are still a wise investment.

‘North For the Harvest’ tells a current labor tale By TIM KING The Land Correspondent A well-written history book can explain to us how, and why, we got where we are today. “North For the Harvest: Mexican Workers, Growers and the Sugar Beet Industry,” by Jim Norris, does that job nicely. In recent months, the U.S. Department of Labor has been in the process of writing rules to limit young people’s work on farms. The rule making process has caused quite a stir in farm country. What are the feds doing sticking their nose in long-cherished agricultural ways, many of us have asked? Norris points out that the federal government’s long nose has been sniffing around agriculture, and agricultural labor, for a long time now. The Jones-Costigan Act of 1934 established a production quota for sugar producers, created a system of price supports, established a minimum wage for sugar beet field workers, and forbade the employment of anyone under 14 years old unless they were the children of the land owner. That last phrase, about children under 14 needing to be children of the landowner, probably originated from Mabel Costigan, Norris points out. She was married to U.S. Sen. Edward B. Costigan. The Costigan family was involved in the Colorado sugar beet industry and Mabel had campaigned to get children out of the beet fields in Colorado. At the time, American Crystal was the third largest sugar producer in the country and was a major force in the sugar industry in both Colorado and the Red River Valley.

By the time of the JonesCostigan Act, sugar beet production and processing was already well-established in the Valley of the Red River of the North. Norris shows how sugar joined wheat and potatoes to become a major crop in the big flat rich fields between Minnesota and North Dakota during the first two decades of the 20th century. He shows that tens of thousands of refugees fled the killing fields of the Mexican Revolution for Texas during in the second decade of the 20th century. He also shows how many of those refugees went to work in the growing agriculture industry of Texas. And he shows why those refugees became the mainstays of a growing sugar industry far to the north. “Necessity turned farmers in the Red River Valley to sugar beet growing. Necessity brought the sugar beet industry to the valley. And necessity linked Mexican migrant workers to those farmers and the industry,” he writes. Because labor was so critical, the sugar company often helped farmers find workers. They tried German immigrants, college students, Japanese immigrants and Native Americans.

But always, sometimes reluctantly, they returned to the Mexican workers. Often times the company was in competition with other beet growing regions and Texas farmers in the so-called Winter Garden of Crystal City. “In 1920, Crystal City had a population of about 800 residents with 520 irrigated acres of vegetables cultivated in the area. Ten years later the population had grown to over 6,600, of which 5,100 were Mexicans; growers cultivated over 11,000 acres of spinach and onions.” The sugar industry in the Red River Valley was expanding rapidly at the same time. The sugar company brought workers north by the trainload. The competition for labor was fierce. Occasionally the government stepped in. During World Wars I and II guest worker programs were instituted. But during the Great Depression of the 1930s there were mass deportations of those same workers. Non-citizens and citizens with brown skin were indiscriminately deported. By 1941, at the dawn of WWII, 27,000 workers were needed in the Valley’s sugar beet fields. Seventy-five percent of those were Mexican. White people were abandoning the area by

the thousands in search of jobs in the growing war industries of California. The companies and farmers struggled through fieldwork with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Bad, and worsening, weather delayed the harvest and drove many workers away. The industry’s intense need for labor brought on the first strike. Workers who had been pulling beets from frozen ground in blizzard conditions demanded more. “One evening, with the harvest running perilously late in the season, a delegation of about 20 workers appeared at the East Grand Forks sugar plant and threatened to organize a strike if harvest wages were not increased. American Crystal had no choice but to agree quickly; the company increased wages from $0.90 per ton to $1.10. Only by them doing so was the 1941 harvest completed.” Norris continues to follow the relationship between workers, farmers and American Crystal Sugar until the farmers bought the company in the early 1970s. With that purchase, he points out; the farmers changed their relationship with the workers. No longer would the company recruit workers for the farmers. They were on their own. Although Norris takes us no farther than the ’70s, it is easy to imagine the connection between decisions made 40 years ago and the labormanagement struggles playing out in the Valley’s sugar industry today. “North For the Harvest: Mexican Workers, Growers and the Sugar Beet Industry” is published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press and is available from them at www.mhspress.org, from local bookstores or from your local library. ❖

Hands clapped, sharing in our boys’ happiness and relief, and cheers went out for a tractor that went to two young farmers who had fallen in love with it, simply because it was one of grandpa’s tractors. Grandpa Art’s farm was the only home that tractor had ever known. The tractor was loaded up on a trailer, and taken to its new home. The next night the boys and I sat down to e-mail my youngest brother in Arkansas to let him know that they

had purchased grandpa’s tractor. My husband said, “Why don’t you tell the rest of the story, guys?” Looking sheepishly at me, one of them said, “We broke the headlight out on the motorcycle.” “How did that happen already?” I inquired. After a pause, he replied, “I hit the 1750. We’re not used to the throttle yet.” It felt really good to laugh. Karen Schwaller brings “Table Talk” to The Land from her home near Milford, Iowa.

Residue risk assessment tool for dairy Dairy producers can assess their risk for a violative antibiotic residue in milk and meat by using an online tool from Pfizer Animal Health. The short, 10-question self-assessment takes only a few minutes to complete and is at www.AvoidResidues.com/Assessment. “This assessment is designed to help producers evaluate their management practices that could lead to a higher risk of a residue violation,” said Mike Lormore, director of Dairy Technical Services for Pfizer Animal Health. The assessment tool — created using data from actual Federal Drug Administration investigations into residue violations — asks question about a producer’s on-farm animal health prac-

tices. A weighted scoring system assigns points to practices based on their likelihood of contributing to a higher risk of a residue violation. Once completed, the assessment rates the farm’s residue risk level as low, moderate or high. Results can be printed or e-mailed to the herd veterinarian. This tool is another part of Pfizer Animal Health’s continued commitment to responsible antibiotic use as well as milk and meat drug residue avoidance. To take the evaluation, log on to www.AvoidResidues.com, where visitors will also find thought-provoking, action-oriented videos about the causes of violative drug residues and tips for getting started on a drug residue prevention plan. ❖

Climate adjustment may be another point in favor of the Fleckvieh breed. Popp said that with increased heat stress it takes longer for a cow with more muscle mass to become heated up. “So we’re experiencing less heat stress on our Fleckviehs versus thinner, more ‘dairy style’ cows. Also the Fleckvieh breed has a thicker hide so she is more able to maintain herself in temperature extremes of both heat and cold. “We’ve got some herds in Canada where guys are wintering their Fleckvieh cows straight out on a straw pack.” Access to semen is best made by contacting Big Bear Genetics directly at email bigbeargenetics@inetlink.ca or log on to www.bigbeargenetics.com or call (204) 636-2387.

He said there are now several dairy herds in Minnesota that have gotten into cross breeding with Fleckvieh cross-bred cows now milking. For about 12 years, he has been working with a German dairy genetics firm — Bayern Genetik — that specializes in the Fleckvieh breed. Popp’s doctorate is in ruminant nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan. This helps him understand and work with dairies on management and nutrition. A pure Fleckvieh cow is red and white. Fleckvieh genetics are recognized for their ability to contribute to meat yield, growth performance and maternal traits. Popp sees the breed working its way into both dairy and beef cow operations in Canada and the United States. Popp and Big Bear Genetics were exhibiting at the Midwest Dairy Expo, St. Cloud, Minn., in December. ❖

<< MILKER’S MESSAGE >>

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer A dairy breed from Bavaria, Germany, called Fleckvieh seems to be gaining attention for both beef and dairy production in Canada and the United States. “It’s a dual-purpose breed with the aim of improving longevity, health, fertility and strength,” said John Popp, president of Big Bear Genetics Ltd. in Erickson, Manitoba. With nearly 10 years working with Fleckvieh genetics in several Canadian and U.S. cow herds, Popp said, “we can confidently say we are John Popp adding 1.5 lactations to herd average. We’re also adding to the milk’s component value with a 0.2 percent improvement in protein and measurably higher butter fat. Those component improvements offset the 2 to 5 percent reduction in milk production.” Popp said there is also a predictable reduction in somatic cell count which too can be added bonuses to the milk check. Cooperators are also reporting improvements in fertility which directly impacts dairy margins. With Fleckvieh, producers have the option of choosing different types of genetics. Within the breed you can select to add or reduce frame size. A 1,400- to 1,500-pound cow is the generally accepted mature weight. If used in a Holstein herd, Popp said the Fleckvieh genetics would reduce the hip height of cows about two inches, producing a rounder, more muscular animal. “Dairymen think this rounder, shorter cow won’t milk. But the cow functions differently in terms of her metabolism,” Popp said. As such she has a slower onset of lactation, a flatter more persistent lactation, but still capable of producing 65 to 70 pounds

This column was written for the marketing week ending Feb. 17. Rising milk production is the “white cloud” hiding the silver lining on dairy’s horizon. Jerry Dryer warned on his Feb. 10 Dairy and Food Market Analyst, “this is not the traditional spring flush arriving earlier than usual. There will be a traditional spring flush MIELKE MARKET which starts in the South this WEEKLY month and then presses north By Lee Mielke extending through May in the Northeast and Upper Midwest.” “These cows have no regard for the problems being created,” Dryer wrote, and “some processors are already having problems in their search for available plant capacity. Discounts of as much as $4 per hundredweight are required to move milk to some plants in the Upper Midwest” and Dryer has identified two large operations that historically handle surplus milk during the flush in the West and both are “already full” and happening despite high cull prices. “It will take a while for the lower prices to have an impact, but then less-efficient milk producers will have no choice,” Dryer warned. “They will put a padlock on the barn door. Bankers will be patient with good producers, but have no time left to work with the marginal.” He predicts a “greater-than-usual exit this year.” For more details call (561) 445-1074 or e-mail jdryer@dairymarketanalyst.com. ■ Meanwhile, cash cheese prices were mixed on Valentine’s week as they awaited Friday afternoon’s January Milk Production report. The blocks closed that Friday at $1.4875 per pound, up 1.25 cents on the week but 46.75 cents below a year ago. The barrels closed at $1.48, down a half cent on the week and 43.75 cents below a year ago. Thirteen cars of block and three of barrel found new homes on the week. The National Agricultural Statistics Service-surveyed U.S. average block price fell to $1.5311, down 2.8 cents, while the barrels rolled to $1.5294, down 1.2 cents. FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks said in the Feb. 13 eDairy Insider Opening Bell that cheese prices dropped more quickly than he originally anticipated, which could mean they’ll turn around more quickly. He anticipates that cheese purchases for summer grilling will begin to boost prices in March or early April but until then, “prices will likely trade in a relatively tight range.” ■ Butter saw the fifth week in a row of decline but See MIELKE, pg. 3B


NMPF projects MILC payments through August said. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Daily Dairy Report says cheese imports at 315.3 million pounds, were up 3.4 percent from 2010, the first increase in nine years. Last year’s small gain notwithstanding, U.S. cheese imports have dropped by 34 percent since peaking in 2002, according to the DDR. Milk protein concentrate imports totaled 118.7 million, down 8.1 percent from the prior year. Imports of casein

and caseinates jumped 39 percent however, to 195.1 million. Imports of butterfat dropped 6.3 percent to 28.8 million, according to the USDA’s trade data. ■ Speaking of the world market, prices were lower on the semi-monthly Global Dairy Trade auction.

The March Class I base was a dime lower than the NMPF projected so the MILC payment may be a nickel higher than anticipated, however Gould predicted a March MILC of 37 cents, prior to Friday’s futures settlements. ■ This week’s Livestock, Dairy and Poultry Outlook reported that the dairy cow herd size is currently above a year earlier but, weakening producer returns should prompt herd size reduction by the end of 2012. Expected higher milk production will lower price prospects this year for milk and the major dairy products, except whey. Exports will help support dry product prices. Whey prices continue above 2011 and milk powder prices should strengthen later in the year. The January Cattle report showed a 1 percent higher inventory of dairy cows on farms than a year earlier. However, the number of heifers for milk cow replacement and the number of heifers expected to calve in 2012 were both reported 1 percent below a year earlier. Although the cow inventory forecast for 2012 is only raised slightly to 9.19 million head, the January report points to higher forecast cow numbers early in the year, with a sharper fall-off than projected in January expected later in 2012. Milk per cow is forecast higher than in January at an average 21,645 pounds. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the higher than expected milk per cow observed in the fourth quarter of 2011 will likely continue through 2012. Further, the mild winter is expected to benefit production, especially in the first quarter. On balance, this forecast would lead to 199 billion pounds of milk production in 2012, higher than the January estimate and 1.4 percent above the 2011 total output, according to the USDA. ■ On a brighter note, Dairy Profit Weekly reports that, based on the latest data from the U.S. Dairy Export Council and the NMPF, December U.S. dairy product exports were equivalent to 13 percent of U.S. milk solids production, the 21th straight month in which exports have been between 12 and 15 percent of output. Last year’s exports were equivalent to 13.3 percent, compared with 12.8 percent in 2010. Meanwhile, imports as a percent of milk solids production were just 2.9 percent in 2011, the DPW

MIELKE, from pg. 2B ended Friday on an up note, gaining a penny and three quarters on five offers. It closed at $1.4150, still down 1.75 cents on the week, and 59 cents below a year ago when it lost 8.5 cents. Ten cars were sold. NASS butter averaged $1.4991, down 4.9 cents. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed at $1.2925, down 4.25 cents, and Extra Grade held all week at $1.2975. NASS powder averaged $1.4039, up 1.9 cents, and dry whey lost another 2.3 cents, slipping to 64.14 cents/lb. ■ Looking “back to the futures,” the average Class III milk price for the first six months of 2012 stood at $17.60/cwt. on Jan. 6; $17.28 on Jan. 13; $16.81 on Jan. 20; $16.85 on Jan. 27; $16.35 on Feb. 3, (after factoring in the announced January Class III milk price) $16.19 on Feb. 10, and was hovering around $16.02 late-morning Feb. 17. ■ California’s March Class I milk price is $17.60/cwt. for the north and $17.87 for the south. Both are down 92 cents from February and $1.64 below March 2011. This is the third month in a row they have declined. The 2012 average now stands at $18.67 for the north, up from $17.52 in the same period a year ago. The southern average is $18.94, up from $17.79 a year ago. The March Federal order Class I base price is $16.30, down 73 cents from February, $1.93 below a year ago, and equates to about $1.40 per gallon. That put the 2012 average at $17.38, up from $16.44 at this time a year ago and compares to $14.74 in 2010. The NASS-surveyed butter price averaged $1.5220/lb., down 6.7 cents from February. Nonfat dry milk averaged $1.3930, down 2.3 cents. Dry whey averaged 65.31 cents, down 3.8 cents, and cheese averaged $1.5553, down a nickel. ■ Dairy producers will be receiving Milk Income Loss Contract payments.The National Milk Producers Federation projected the following as of Feb. 9: 27.3 cents for February; 52.7 cents for March; 79.38 cents in April; 77.84 cents for May; 63.83 cents in June; 45.57 cents for July; and 10.45 cents for August.

‘Building with Secondhand Stuff’ worth a second look Nobody needs to remind you that money’s tight. Still, you’ve been dreaming of a new look around your home, an addition or a total remodel, and that’s dangerous territory. You know from experience that one idea leads to another, which leads to another and pretty soon, you’re deep in sawdust and debt. So how can you get a new look — or a new shed, garage, outbuilding or playhouse for the kids — for cheap or for free? Start with the ideas in “Building with Secondhand Stuff” by Chris Peterson. Even in a down economy, construction of new buildings continues to happen while old buildings are demol-

ished and carted off to a landfill. That’s a lot of waste, Peterson says, which can be “a fantastic opportunity” for homeowners. It doesn’t take much imagination to realize that reclaiming and repurposing old or cast-off building materials is sustainable and environmentally friendly. The bonus to reusing is that materials you find may be of higher quality than what’s in stores. Plus, learning to deconstruct and reuse can be a fun challenge. First, though, you’ll need to ask permission before taking (if it’s a construction site) or find a regular source, such as a salvage or demolition company or look at flea markets. Then do your

Why should urban Americans join you in using soy biodiesel? That’s the question the United Soybean Board and soybean checkoff will answer as part of its biodiesel and Bioheat communications program. It will help improve availability and use of soy biodiesel — the only commercially available advanced biofuel — in major U.S. cities across the United States. This year, USB farmer-leaders committed nearly $200,000 to assist nine U.S. Department of Energy-affiliated “Clean Cities” coalitions to increase the availability and use of soy biodiesel and heating-oil-alternative Bioheat through promotion and education

USB funding will assist Clean Cities across the United States in communicating the benefits of soy biodiesel and Bioheat through radio public service announcements, outdoor advertising, informational workshops for energy users and distributors, promotional events and many other activities. Among the Clean Cities Coalitions selected by USB farmer-directors to participate in the 2012 reimbursement program include: Iowa Clean Cities, partnering with Iowa Soybean Association; and Twin Cities Clean Cities Coalition, partnering with Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council. ❖

Efforts to eliminate scrapie in the sheep and goat populations in the United States are succeeding. To ensure complete and successful eradication of this fatal degenerative brain disease it is necessary to address identification requirements for both sheep and goats.

times have a reaction with their skin tissue resulting in bulgy lesion-looking patches on the skin called Kerions. “The treatment for ringworm in humans or animals is usually going to involve a topical medication. Oral medication may be needed if the ringworm is chronic. It is certainly not a reason to get rid of a dog or cat because it can be treated,” Russell said. If a pet is diagnosed with ringworm it is best to take steps to disinfect objects

“Tinea pedis, or athlete’s foot, is the most common form of ringworm found in humans and the most difficult to treat. The rash most often appears in the moist areas between the toes, though the rest of the foot can be infected as well. Itching and burning are typical symptoms,” Russell said. Community swimming pools, used towels, health clubs, steam rooms and showers are common areas where athlete’s foot can be contracted. “Rarely humans can transmit the disease to animals. An example of this might be if a person with athlete’s foot comes home, takes their shoes off, and scratches or rubs ol’ Fido with their bare foot,” Russell said. Livestock such as cattle or horses are more likely to have ringworm when they are kept inside their stalls in the winter because of the rubbing up against wood and other stall materials. “These cases are seen more in the northern parts of the United States where the weather is colder. Generally, when the weather becomes warmer again and the animals are turned outside into the sunshine of pastures, the disease begins to clear up,” Russell said. In horses ringworm is seen usually in places where rubbing may occur, such as where a saddle or bridle might touch. Adults are more likely to contract ringworm from a horse rather than children, due to occupational exposure and handling. The effects of ringworm tend to be superficial ones of appearance, though, if not treated in animals it can easily spread and cause scar tissue. Some people, mostly children, who contract ringworm from a pet can some-

It may be surprising for some to learn that the skin infection known as ringworm, or dermatophytosis, is not actually a worm or parasite at all, but a fungus. The lesion will not always be in the shape of a ring, but it will appear scaly in the center with a red irritated color on the periphery. “Household pets generally pick up the disease from other animals. Where the infection occurs on the skin there will be a bald patch, but sometimes they may just have a few broken hairs,” said Leon Russell, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Ringworm is highly contagious and can pass from person to person either through direct contact, through contact with an infected object, contact with an infected pet or infected soil. Humans can contract ringworm from animals easily by touching the infected area directly or through contact with objects which have been exposed contaminated with the fungus or its spores. Animal ringworm types, usually from a dog, cat or rodent are more likely to be transmitted to young children. With children it is often found in the scalp region. “Fungi that mostly live in human skin are called ‘anthropophilic’, those that live on animals are called ‘zoophilic’, and those that prefer to live in soil are called ‘geophilic’ fungi,” Russell said. The anthropophilic ringworm is mostly seen in developing countries such as Africa, or parts of Asia by human-to-human transmission. Many times this occurs from sharing hairbrushes or combs, and unless someone’s immune system is highly compromised then the disease is not life threatening.
