OPINION

THE LAND, MARCH 9, 2012

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation submitted comments on behalf of Farm Bureau members from Minnesota to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the proposed Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation reporting rule. In the comments, MFBF President Kevin Paap said that the proposed rule’s two primary options are significantly flawed because they exceed the EPA’s authority under the Clean Water Act while creating intense security, safety and privacy concerns for farmers. There is ample public information already available that the EPA can gather for CWA purposes. “We urge the EPA to pursue that approach instead.” Paap also said that the MFBF objects to the proposed rule’s two primary options for the following four reasons. First, many of today’s livestock and poultry farms

DURGAN, from pg. 2A Not only do we need to teach consumers about farming, but those of us who work in agriculture need to continually upgrade our knowledge. Food production is a technology business today. Guidance and GPS tools help put the crop in the field and micro-controllers move food safely from the field to the plate. One reason new agricultural graduates are in such high demand is they have science smarts and technology skills. They will learn that skill development does not stop at graduation. Agricultural careers require continual updating of skills and knowledge. That is one reason why we see such high participation in Extension programs that bring the latest knowledge to farmers and agricul-

The Daily Bread serves two hot lunches each week, and is hoping to increase to three. (Students carry their lunch the other days.) It is operated by parents and has its own budget, but works with the blessing and sometimes direction of the school board. MACS has an enrollment of 75 students in first through eighth grades. They serve about 90 percent of the student body at each meal, along with staff and parents who may come to eat. Their first goal is to provide nutritious hot meals. To do that they have gotten to know local producers, and sought out organic sources when possible. Christensen said that the Land Stewardship Project was helpful at the beginning for locating local sources. They purchase as close to home as possible, but parents have driven some distance to pick up food items at various Minnesota communities. See LUNCH, pg. 6A

Hawaiian style: Uneducated consumer or savvy shopper? By CAROLYN VAN LOH The Land Correspondent Farmers shudder to think that many consumers today don’t understand where their food comes from. A visit to a coffee plantation and a nut processing company on the Big Island of Hawaii and the Dole Plantation on Oahu would prove to mainland farmer/tourists that they sometimes fall into the uneducated consumer category. Phil Becker and his wife, Merle, operate the Aikane Plantation and Coffee Co. begun by Merle’s great grandfather in 1894 near the Kilauea volcano on the Big Island. They have received numerous awards for their operation, and their coffee is the only Hawaiian brand to receive the Hawaii seal of quality. “We pick the coffee beans, or ‘cherries,’ by hand from August through April,” said Angie, one of the plantation workers. “But because of this season, I think we’ll be picking until June.” Trees continually produce cherries, so pickers check the trees frequently. Freshly picked berries are covered with water overnight to ferment before being power washed by hand the next day. “We spread the cherries on screens so the sun can dry them to 14-percent moisture,” Angie told the visitors. “Next, we transfer them to wooden racks to complete the drying process” to 9 percent. The dried beans are then bagged and transported to the roasting plant. Corn and soybean farmers might be surprised to learn that coffee farmers use the DICKEY-john moisture tester on the plantation.

Above: Coffee beans are dried to 9 percent moisture. Right: Coffee beans, or “cherries,” are picked by hand from August through April, as shown by Angie, one of the plantation’s workers. The average size of the 700 coffee plantations on the island of Hawaii is 5 acres, but the Becker plantation boasts 10 acres, with plans to expand. The labor-intensive production process enlightens coffee lovers on the high price of quality coffee and explains why coffee plantations are so small. Minnesota connection Visitors at the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Co. on the northwest coast of Hawaii will discover a Minnesota-Hawaii connection dating back to World War

II. The military served Spam processed in Austin, Minn., to troops during the war, but long after the troops retreated, Spam remained. Restaurant breakfast menus on the islands include Spam as a meat option, and the large Spam-flavored macadamia nut display at the Hamakua visitor center confirms Spam’s continued popularity. “Some companies import the raw nuts, but we use only macadamia nuts grown in the Hawaiian Islands,” said the clerk. “We have samples of most of our flavored nuts. Help yourself and see which one you like best. Then take our self-guided tour.” A consumer wanting the healthiest cooking oil may want to consider Macadamia nut oil because it rivals olive oil’s benefits. The oil is 80-percent monounsaturated, has no trans fat or carbohydrates, and is the lowest of all food oils in Omega-6 fatty acids. The oil has a shelf life of two years and has a smoke point of 389 degrees, twice that of extra-virgin olive oil. Dole assumption wrong Consumers often assume pineapple comes from a Dole plantation in Hawaii. At one time, that assumption was accurate, but several years ago, Dole moved most of its operations to Thailand and the Philippines because of labor costs. Today Dole’s Hawaiian pineapple is grown for local consumption and for tourists who want to ship a fresh pineapple to the mainland. St. Augustine once said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” A trip to Hawaii enables the tourist to read a few more pages and to become a more-educated consumer. The author visited the plantation and coffee company while in Hawaii for the American Farm Bureau annual meeting earlier this year. ❖


Ear tags identify sows at automated feeding station Sort of like getting milk with your crackers. — Gary Wyse, speaking of adding water to feeding bowl

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

The number of stalls depends on herd size as well as the cost efficiencies a particular producer is looking for. Wyse said, “with fewer sows and more space per sow, the higher the production on a piglet-persow-per-year basis up to about 24 square feet per sow and 45 sows per station. In this scenario you can see upwards of 30 piglets per sow per year. More sows per feeding station and arithmetically you see a downward trend in piglets per sow per year.” He said Nedap doesn’t have substantiated research to verify anticipated production declines if sows per feeding station get increased above that suggested 45-sow figure. “But you will see a decline in a sow’s piglet production as you increase up to 65 animals per feeding station.” Cost per feeding station as compared to a typical stall barn is about $200 to $210 per sow space in the system. The electronics of this sophisticated system are guaranteed for 30 months from date of manufacture. The systems are manufactured in Holland, long a leader in animal handling equipment. Ear tags are warranted for five years. “If they get dumped into the manure pit, and you can find them send us the damaged tag and we’ll send you a new one,” Wyse said. Farm costs are about $10 per ear tag. Wyse admits that these tags are expensive but with a five-year warranty they can be reused multiple times, meaning if the “older sows” get marketed and the five-

year span hasn’t expired, the tags can be taken off the departing sows and can be used on the gilts. Labor savings with this automated system are difficult to predict. “It depends so much on how a particular producer sets up his overall housing and handling for his gilts and sows. However with a dynamic group it can be substantial. We have a 1,000-sow producer in Manitoba that has only three guys to run the entire operation,” Wyse said. The system can do several automated jobs. For example, when you need to administer shots, if they are spray marked with a different color, it can sort out and direct these individuals into a specific pen. And it can adjust to handle DDGs in the ration, even up to a 40-percent level. “As long as it’s still a dry feed the system will handle such a ration,” Wyse said. “But you can adjust each sow’s feed strategy by the parity of that sow. Also you can adjust by body condition scores of each animal. You have the opportunity to use up to 999 feed strategies with this system.” Note that this system is designed only for sows and gilts during their gestation period. It is not a lactation feeding system. This technology dates back to 1982, and the current electronic system has been available since 1996. “Today it’s just an easier system to work with. It’s very common in the western European nations. We have some installations in China, and some in Eastern Europe,” Wyse said, and it’s now slowly working into the American swine industry. In Western Europe “open pen” gestation becomes mandatory in 2013, so as sow stalls disappear, the Nedap system will become much more common.

THE LAND, MARCH 9, 2012

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer It looks elementary. Electronic ear tags that precisely determine how much feed a given gestation animal gets to eat during any 24-hour period. This isn’t new technology; it’s already common in milking parlors and robotic milking operations. That said, Nedap Agri’s display at January’s Minnesota Pork Expo still generated questions because with farrowing crates a diminishing strategy in modern swine production, stall feeding via electronics is being looked at. Gary Wyse, representing Nedap at the Expo, explained his electronic sow feeding technology this way: “With the ear tag in place, each animal walks into a feed station which automatically locks behind the animal, providing total security as it munches through its daily ration. An antenna reads the ear tag identifying the animal and then dispenses the exact amount of feed for that particular animal.” If it’s a five-pound allotment for that particular sow, feed gets dropped in 3 1/2 to 4-ounce increments until the total allotment is reached. The system also simultaneously adds some water to the “feeding bowl” so she’s enjoying a mush meal, so to speak. “Sort of like getting milk with your crackers,” Wyse said. It’s not enough water to drink but it certainly makes dry feed more palatable. Feeding time is adjustable. If the producer prefers his sows and gilts eating only during an 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. period, so be it. However “chow time” can be any time within a 24-hour time frame. Typically gestating sows eat only once per day, but if a particular animal prefers eating two or three times per day, she can be ear tagged with information that triggers the feeding stalls accordingly.

Coming in 2012: Another ‘black-ink’ year for pork By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The Minnesota Pork Congress is one of the larger state pork shows in America, with a broad agenda that puts the emphasis on great speakers and challenging topics. This year’s agenda included a Manure Applicators Workshop, Pork Export Projections, Energy Savings in Nurseries with Reduced Nocturnal Temperature and Alternative Feed Ingredients. “The exhibitors obviously help finance these events and the exhibitors go where the pork produc-

ers are. Iowa and Minnesota are where the most producers are found,” said Minnesota Pork Producers Executive Director Dave Preisler. The Minnesota Pork Congress draws from North Dakota, South Dakota, Canada, Wisconsin and northern Iowa. Even though there is consolidation within the support industry, exhibitor numbers keep increasing. “Almost 10 more exhibitors this year than last year, which was also a record number,” Preisler said. This year’s list tallied 150, with several out of Canada and a few even from Europe and Asia.

The beef industry talks of a repositioning going on because of the severe drought through cattle country of southwest United States. Is the pork industry repositioning? “Yes,” Preisler said, but it’s not a weather-related phenomena. The “people resources” and physical infrastructure to better handle the pork industry have shifted things to the Upper Midwest. Perhaps not surprisingly, our manure handling capabilities are better here. “There’s tremendous demand from other farmers,” he said, “plus we have the cultivated crops for positioning of our livestock manure. And because of environmental issues that have become a huge advantage for this area.” So are the attendees at the Minnesota Pork Congress more “tuned in” these days? Preisler thinks so, perhaps because many pork producers are younger. They have an insatiable quest for information and new technologies. There’s simply more “action” at a pork

show than a crop show. “What I’m seeing are a lot more younger guys and gals coming back to the farm. A profitable industry that also offers a good lifestyle, especially for young families, is making the difference,” Preisler said. In addition, a lot of today’s hog operations are big enough to support more than one family. In essence, Dad now has the financial opportunity for his offspring to return to the farm. “Meeting the next generation of pork producers is a special treat for me at our shows,” Preisler said. Economist Steve Meyer predicts pork profits for 2012 might parallel the strong profits of the 2011 marketing year, and Preisler agrees. Meyer was talking upwards of $14 per head profits for 2012 and that about matches 2011 profits for many producers. “Historically that’s a good margin,” Preisler said. “Yes, revenues have See PORK, pg. 11A

Preisler: China’s hog industry not just ‘back yard’ producers industry — which puts the cheapest protein into the meat counter. However both Preisler and Meyer predict broiler prices, too, will climb simply because the broiler producer can’t make a profit on $1 chicken breasts.

times the pig density of Iowa. That just complicates the disease issues for the Chinese swine industry.” Can the swine market get strong enough to ration consumption by the U.S. household? Potentially yes, Preisler said, noting that several dynamics come into play. Perhaps No.1 is that other white meat — the broiler

Pork exports are staying strong, currently at about 27 percent of total U.S. production, Preisler said. That number keeps ramping up, especially because of the demand out of China, Korea and other Southeast Asia countries. Two advantages are driving this export market: The “pig health” issue for hogs produced in China and South Korea; plus livestock density is getting to be a significant problem in China and other Asian countries. Interestingly, China still produces about 10 times more pork than does the United States. Yet Meyer said the Chinese farmer still lives in a “Communist command” society, so what motivates the Chinese pork farmer? Preisler has traveled to China a few times. He’s keenly aware of some of what is happening in this country of nearly 2 billion people. They’re not the “back yard” pig producers anymore. “They’re making money,” he said, “and now there are a growing number of private-public partnerships which lessens the financial risk and helps generate better-equipped hog production facilities. But they’re being challenged by not having enough farmable land, and acute water supply problems. The pig density in China is five

PORK, from pg. 10A increased significantly, but costs are doing the same upward climb. So just looking at percent return on investment, this might not be as good as some of our better years, however a ‘black ink’ year is good for everyone.” Who owns the hog industry these days? Consolidation the past several years has drastically lowered the number of producers, and in many areas it has also skewed ownership. Preisler said that in Minnesota it’s still a diversified industry, and it is still Minnesota-owned. “We have a lot of what I call very competitive mid-sized operations that have gotten very good at raising pork and putting proven technology to work,” Preisler said, “and we still have many Minnesota farmers who grow crops and hogs and that’s a very competitive model. “We went so far and so fast into specialization. Now we’re seeing diversification back on the scene and a major reason is the big impact of manure utilization. You really can drop the cost of crop production by using your own hog manure as the primary fertility ingredient for your corn crop.”

ary 2012 milk-feed price ratio to its lowest level since July 2009, according to the DPW. The index, at just 1.58, was down from January’s revised estimate of 1.72, and February 2011’s 2.01. The index is based on the current milk price in relationship to feed prices for a ration of 51 percent corn, 8 percent soybeans and 41 percent alfalfa hay. At $17.90/cwt., the average milk price is the lowest in 13 months. Compared to July 2009, the February 2012 index got this low in a slightly different manner, according to the DPW, markedly higher feed costs. In 2009, the 1.57 index came about from a milk price of just $11.30/cwt. Rising feed costs and declining milk prices are expected to result in Milk Income Loss Contract payments in 2012 according to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Daily Dairy Report. It quoted estimates from the University of Wisconsin’s Brian Gould, who says MILC payments could range from 44 cents in March to almost $1/cwt. in June based upon estimated milk and feed costs. Meanwhile, February cull cow (beef and dairy combined) prices rose above $80/cwt., likely the highest on record, according to the USDA’s preliminary estimates. February prices averaged $80.10/cwt., up $5.50 from January’s revised estimate of $74.60, and $7.60/cwt. higher than February 2011. The February average puts the beef value of a 1,200-pound cull cow at $961 per head. The USDA also said replacement cows averaged $1,420 per head in 2011, up about $90 from 2010.

On Feb. 22 and 23, the U.S. Department of Agriculture held their annual Agricultural Forum. The USDA’s top economist, Joseph Glauber, described a strong farm economy with bright prospects of the next year. He said, “2011 was a very good year for much of U.S. agriculture; we saw record prices for many commodities, record agricultural exports and record farm income. Not surprising, record prices have prompted record production for many commodities and as we saw over the last half of 2011, prices for grains, oilseeds and cotton have come down, reflecting strong production levels.” The USDA projected a 14.27 bilTOM NEHER lion bushel corn crop from 94 milAgStar VP & Team lion acres planted.

The USDA is predicting farmers will receive an average price of $5 per bushel in the 2012-13 crop year. This price is the average cash price received at the farm gate. Soybean production is projected 6 percent higher at 3.25 billion bushels due to increased harvested acreage and yield. Planting will be 75 million acres, but the average yield is projected at 43.9 bushels an acre, up 2.4 percent from 2011. Soybean farm prices are expected to drop slightly to an average of $11.50 per bushel. Wheat production in 2012 is expected to increase more than 8 percent to 2.165 billion bushels due to a hike in acreage and yield.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

The livestock markets are quite the interesting markets these days. One of the markets has been on fire, while the other seems to be content to just smolder. This brings to mind that there might be some major changes in the weeks and months ahead in the livestock industry. The firestorm has been in the cattle market which has continued to make new alltime highs in price on a seemingly regular basis. The most common reason given for the strength has been the reduced numbers of cattle. This may have been the catalyst to get the market moving to the higher prices, but the most prominent reason since the first of the year has been the influx of JOE TEALE speculative money infused into Broker the futures market. Great Plains Commodity Price discovery has not been a Afton, Minn. function of the current fundamentals, but rather the movement in the futures prices that have dictated the price paid in the cash market. The heavy concentration of this speculative money has been to the long side of the market and has overwhelmed the trade into believing that the only direction is up for cattle prices. This is reminiscent of other markets that have moved to extreme levels which are labeled bubble markets. The problem with bubbles is they tend to burst when over-inflated. The fundamentals are a concern at this juncture as packers have been forced to pay higher prices for live inventory, the beef cutouts have not kept up with the costs of the raw product and the profit margin for the packer has disappeared. Because the beef cutout has moved higher the domestic demand for beef has shrunk accordingly. A typical “Catch-22.” On Feb. 24 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The

Editor’s Note: Tim Emslie, Country Hedging market analyst, is sitting in this week for Phyllis Nystrom, the regular “Grain Outlook” columnist. ■ The following market analysis is for the week ending March 2. CORN — The corn market finished the week on a strong note. For the week, the March contract was up 18.25 cents and the December contract was up 12 cents. The nearby contract has now recovered all the losses seen following the January U.S. Department of Agriculture report, closing at the highTIM EMSLIE est level of 2012 on March 2. Country Hedging St. Paul Cash markets have continued to provide support, although the main strength this week was due to spillover support from the soybean market. The 2012 crop insurance price levels were finalized this week, coming in at $5.68 for corn and $12.55 for soybeans. That compares to $6.01 for corn in 2011, and $13.51 for soybeans. That means that the soybean-corn ratio has moved in favor of corn this year compared to 2011, but not nearly as much as it looked like it would prior to February. The ratio dipped below 2.0 in November, and spent much of December and early January below 2.1, strongly favoring corn. In 2011, the ratio was 2.25, and in 2012 it will be fairly close to that level at 2.21. With many, if not most plans made prior to the end of February, rotations are not likely to change significantly due to the recent soybean rally, but soybeans have certainly become more competitive on flex acres. Corn acreage will still be favored this spring if the weather allows for timely planting.

Bean market ‘due for correction’ after high closes EMSLIE, from pg. 15A Informa Economics left its estimate for Brazilian production unchanged this month at 61.5 million metric tons. Its estimate for Argentina was also unchanged at 22.5 mmt. These are both 0.5 mmt higher than the February estimates from the USDA. The president of Argentina said this week in a political speech that production would be 22 mmt. Weekly exports from the United States were fairly routine at 690,000 mt. The daily reporting system reported a sale of 120,000 mt of optional origin corn to Mexico this week. Mexico takes almost exclusively U.S. corn, with the only small exceptions being an occasional shipment of white corn. Weekly ethanol production declined for a second straight week to 896,000 barrels per day, the lowest level since October. Ethanol stocks increased to a record 22 million barrels. Ethanol production does still need to decline further based on the USDA’s corn use estimate given the pace so far. Blending economics remain strong, and should put a floor under production numbers. Ethanol futures ended the week at a $1.02 discount to Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending gasoline. OUTLOOK: The December contract has not shown the strength of the nearby contracts during the recent rally. As noted earlier, the nearby contract closed a new 2012 high this week, while the December contract closed at $5.70, 20 cents off its highest 2012 close set on the first trading day of the year.

The on-going tightness in old-crop and the prospect for 94 million to 95 million acres of newcrop are the obvious reasons. Over the short to medium term, the strength in the old-crop months and the still uncertain nature of new-crop acreage and production should allow for the December contract to work toward resistance at $5.81. A close above that level opens the door for a test of the 2012 high of $5.97, also set on the first day of 2012. Failure at the first resistance level would set up a test of support at $5.49. On the nearby contract chart, resistance is at $6.64, with support at $6.47. SOYBEANS — The nearby soybean finished the week with a string of 10 consecutive higher closes. For the week, March beans were up 49.25 cents, and November beans were up 27.25 cents. Current weather is not doing much further damage, but estimates of South American production continue to be lowered. Some recent rains may have actually helped the Argentine crop, but production estimates are evaluating earlier damage. Several groups from South America reduced their estimates for Brazil and Paraguay this week. On Friday, Informa Economics reduced its estimate for Brazil-

MARKETING

ian production by 2 mmt to 68 mmt, and raised its estimate for Argentina by 1 mmt to 47.5 mmt. However, both estimates remain lower than the February USDA estimates of 72 mmt and 48 mmt, respectively. Weekly export sales were somewhat weak at 549,000 mt for old-crop, but new-crop sales added another 427,000 mt. Daily sales announcements on Wednesday and Friday totaled 570,000 mt. OUTLOOK: The rally since mid-December has been quite orderly, with two corrections during January and one in February. Certainly the market is due for a correction after 10 straight higher closes, but the 2012-13 balance sheets do support higher values if South American production sinks another 5 mmt to 10 mmt from current USDA estimates. It looks like total world production for 201112 could drop about 20 mmt versus the previous year. Demand, and of course specifically Chinese demand, is unknown, but the prospect for record soybean exports in 2012-13 from the United States is strong. The nearby bean contract reached the highest level since September this week. The next major resistance is in the area of last summer’s strong resistance above $14. Support on a pullback would be expected at $12.75. ❖

Hog market stable, if not improving TEALE, from pg. 15A findings were as follows: on-feed, 102 percent; placements, 98 percent and marketed, 102 percent. The report was seen as slightly friendly because of the marketed number. Considering the ramifications of the report it will likely have little effect on the market, since it will depend more on the money flow into or out of the futures in the weeks ahead. Producers should approach the market with skepticism and protect inventories when opportunity presents itself. On the other hand, the hog market has quietly edged higher since the first of the year. Demand for pork has increased due in part to a good export market and an increasing domestic demand. This increase in demand could be the result of the high flying beef cutouts as consumers look for better value in the meat arena. Considering the slaughter rate over the past few

months coupled with the amount of pork in cold storage, this would back the idea that pork demand is good. Slaughter of hogs is higher than a year ago, and at the same time we have seen only a minor increase in the stocks of pork in storage. Given this fact and that hog numbers are fairly stable, this should reflect on a fairly stable if not an improving outlook for hog prices. The hog market has not seen the money flow into the futures as the cattle have experienced and therefore a much more benign market and a market that is following more closely the underlying fundamentals. If the beef prices move higher, look for pork prices to continue to firm as demand shifts away from beef into the better value pork. Producers should continue to monitor the hog market and protect inventories against any adverse changes in the market conditions. ❖

Country boy looking for answers NEHER, from pg. 15A cent in 2012 due to lower cotton prices relative to other crops. Acreage for 2012 is projected at 13 million acres. Production however is projected to rise to 17 million bales. Prices are projected at 80 cents a pound for 2012-13. Rice acreage is projected at 2.75 million acres, up 2 percent from 2011. All of the gains will be in the longgrain rice Delta states. Rice is expected to have an average price of $14.70 per hundredweight at the farm gate. The USDA estimates assume average weather and that most of the acreage idled by prevented-planting claims last spring will return to production. Glauber ended his presentation addressing on-farm income. He forecasts net cash income for 2012 to be at $96.3 billion, down 11.5 percent from 2011, but still the

second highest on record. He suggested that farm asset values are likely to increase 5 percent in the coming year. Glauber said that land prices have appreciated by 20 percent or more in different parts of the country, while farmers’ debt levels are set to rise 4 percent. When I read all of these reports, I think that these folks are much smarter than I ever will become. It all makes my head spin and I feel almost hopeless. Then I remember the sage wisdom of my Grandpa. He would tell me, “Remember that high prices will take care of high prices.” Followed by, “it is always a good idea to buy your straw hats in January.” Then, “it generally doesn’t work to do this year, what I should have done last year.” Frankly, I think those three Grain Angles tell me more than the entire team of USDA economists put together. Or maybe I am just a country boy looking for an answer. ❖

that county. However, the USDA does have the authority to exceed that limit to meet highly erodible land requirements, and if there is deemed to be no adverse economic impacts from the added CRP acreage in that county. The USDA recently announced a separate CRP enrollment in 2012 of 750,000 acres that will target the nation’s most highly erodible crop land, which has a soil erodibility index of 20 or greater. These acres will be offered under the continuous CRP, and will not be part of the competitive EBI ranking process that will be utilized for the 2012 General CRP sign-up. Soil survey and geographical information system data will be used to determine eligibility for this separate CRP enrollment. As of Jan. 31, there was a total of just under 29.7 million acres enrolled in the CRP, which is down from 31.1 million acres on Sept. 30, 2009, and down 7.1 million acres, from 36.8 million acres on Sept. 30, 2007. Currently there are

approximately 24.4 million acres under General CRP contracts, 4.0 million acres under Continuous CRP contracts, and 1.3 million acres under CREP contracts. Sign-up for Continuous CRP is on-going, and will likely continue to be on-going under the new farm bill. Continuous CRP targets the most sensitive environmental land areas, such as filter strips, buffers, wetlands, etc. The CREP is a CRP partnership with state conservation programs, which target specific watersheds. In 2011, CRP contracts expired on 4.4 million acres, but landowners offered only 3.75 million acres for enrollment into CRP during the General CRP signup period. Of that total, the USDA accepted approximately 2.8 million acres into the CRP, resulting in a net reduction of about 1.6 million acres.

Watch for lice in cattle Cold weather in mid- to late-winter in means cattle are spending more time in close proximity to each other. Any time producers bring cattle together there’s an increased risk for lice to spread, said Purdue Extension beef specialist Ron Lemenager. “Lice populations are fairly low in the summer, but they tend to peak this time of year,” he said. “Producers need to watch for obvious signs, such as rubbing or scratching on objects, patches of hair falling out, reddening of the skin or even serum oozing from the hide.” Cattle can take on a greasy appearance at a high level of infestation, Lemenager said. The areas of the animal most commonly affected are the brisket, dewlap, head, neck, shoulders, top line and tail head. Producers need to keep an eye on these areas of their animals for the presence of lice or white, oblong eggs, also known as nits. There are sucking and biting species of lice, and they can be treated with one type of insecticide, said Ralph Williams,

Purdue Extension entomologist. “Pour-on treatments containing pyrethroids will take care of both sucking and biting lice,” he said. “But, it’s important to remember only to treat if necessary.” Producers who find it necessary to treat their animals need to keep in mind that the entire herd will require treatment — not just those animals with symptoms. “An animal that is a carrier may have a low population and not show symptoms, but when cattle are brought together during the winter, the lice spread,” Lemenager said. “If you only treat those animals with symptoms, you might still have carriers that can recontaminate the herd.” Before treating, he said, producers need to read the insecticide labels and if they have questions regarding proper treatment, consult with herd health providers.

‘Rez Life’ an eye-opening, harsh yet poetic book latter audience. He shocks us, he makes us laugh, then he lulls us with poetry before he wallops us with history. I loved that range in writing. I also loved this book for its harsh beauty, its honesty and for Treuer’s incredible talent at telling stories that mean something. For rez residents, there’s not much new here, but I think this is an invaluable book for anyone who’s curious or who lives near a reservation. For you, “Rez Life” explains a lot about the people and culture right in your own back yard. ■ Look for the reviewed book at a bookstore or a library near you. You may also find the book at online book retailers. The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and never goes anywhere without a book. She lives in Wisconsin with three dogs and 10,000 books. ❖

FRUSTRATION GOT THE BEST OF YOU?

“On some reservations in the Dakotas,” Treuer writes, “the median income hovers just above $10,000… Life is hard for many on the rez.” And it’s only slowly getting better. Indians are now U.S. citizens (which didn’t happen until 1924). Drugs, alcohol and crime are major problems on the rez, but many reservations have police forces, as well as tribal courts. Casino money brings paved roads and it pays for legal teams to recover treaty rights (of which, Treuer says, “most Indians didn’t know about ... for the first half of the 20th century”). And Indian children are no longer routinely removed from their homes just because they’re Indians. There are, I think, two different audiences for this book: Indians, for whom “Rez Life” will be validation of the truth; and white readers, for whom this book will be an eye-opener. Treuer plays with the emotions of the

Bring tastes from French country kitchens to yours By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent “Country people” live all over the world, from the Great Plains of North America to the steppes of Russia, from South American cattle ranches to African savannas. They all share the tradition of growing and eating plants and animals that are adapted to local conditions. Each ethnic cuisine takes the greatest advantage of whatever grain, bird, root, fish, berry or herbivore is at hand. Of course, where once we all ate “locally” because we had to, our modern food transportation systems make it infinitely easier to eat a much broader spectrum of foodstuffs. That doesn’t matter to a lot of “country folks,” who merrily continue to eat what their ancestors have been eating for generations, even millennia. In France, food that has simple ingredients, perfectly cooked and in season, using fresh herbs and ancient recipes, is the ideal. Many of the fancyschmancy classic French dishes are just hopped-up versions of down-home country cooking. French cafes and bistros serve up this savory, hearty fare to the general applause of a grateful nation. “The French Country Table: Simple Recipes for Bistro Classics” by Laura Washburn (Ryland Peters & Small, 2010) brings these meals to our American country kitchens. ■

French onion soup is the dish that made me love onions. The rich broth and silken onions, the crusty crouton and gooey cheese … one bowl is a satisfying meal. It’s easy to make, too. There are many variations, but this one is straight from the country of origin. French Onion Soup 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 3 large onions (about 3 pounds), thinly sliced 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 quart beef, chicken or vegetable stock 2 1/4 cups dry white wine 1 fresh bay leaf 2 sprigs of thyme 1 baguette, sliced 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Gruyere cheese Coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Put the butter and oil in a large saucepan and melt over medium heat. Add the onions and cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and flour and cook, stirring for about 1 minute. Add the stock, wine, bay leaf and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 20 min-

Empty the yogurt into a large bowl; add the sugar, flour, eggs, oil, baking soda, salt and half the orange juice. Stir well. Pour into a prepared cake pan (deep-sided, 9 inches in diameter, greased) and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and pierce a few holes in the top with a fork. Pour over the remaining orange juice. Let cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. To decorate, put the confectioners’ sugar into a strainer and hold it over the cake. Tap the edge of the strainer to release the sugar, moving around the surface to coat.

Marinated Pork Roast 1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 pounds 1 large onion, sliced 2 carrots, sliced 1 celery rib, with leaves Marinade 750-milliliter bottle dry white wine 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced 1 fresh bay leaf 2-3 fresh sage leaves A sprig of thyme 2 tablespoons coarse sea salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon black peppercorns Two days before serving, mix all the ingredients for the marinade together in a large, non-reactive bowl. Add the pork and vegetables, cover, and refrigerate for two days, turning the pork regularly. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400 F. Remove the pork from the marinade and put it in a large roasting pan. Add the vegetables and flavorings from the marinade. Cook in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with the marinating liquid. Serve in slices with the side dish of your choice. ■ Fresh green beans are a snap to prepare and difficult to screw up. For these reasons, my family eats a lot of them.

ne hundred and thirty-years mother asteroid before it entered the earth’s atmosphere, broke O after the Estherville meteorite crashed into farm fields near into three large boulder sized this northwest Iowa town, a piece of the meteorite returned home. That was in 2009. “We bought a piece of it from an auction house in Scotland,” said Renee Stowell, of the Estherville Chamber of Commerce. “It’s fairly large. People can view it in the Chamber office.” The Estherville Chamber paid $11,000 for their piece of the meteorite. Rocks from heaven have always been valuable. One reason for that is that many of them have previously unknown minerals in them. The Estherville meteorite is made up of iron, nickel, phosphorus and sulfur. These are all common minerals. But, if you visit the lower level of the Estherville public library, you’ll see the sparkle of Esthervillite. Under glass, and framed by wood, glitters a cross section of a piece of the meteorite. Some of that silvery mineral imbedded in that rough-edged coal black rock is Esthervillite. It had never been seen by science before it came flaming to ground on May 10, 1879. Esthervillite is not of this Earth. Where did that mystery mineral come from? How long has it been separated from its

pieces, and hit the earth with a thump heard for miles around? Where is the mother asteroid? What else is on it that is unknown to us? Estherville was lucky to get a piece of its meteorite back. Almost as soon as the rocks hit the ground, the scramble to market this strange manna began. The meteorite broke into thousands of tiny pieces and three large pieces of 431, 151 and 106 pounds. An Estherville lawyer gained possession of the largest piece and sold it to the British Museum for a grand sum. The British in turn sold parts of it to French and Austrian museums. Other parts of the meteorite ended up in museums across the United States, including a museum at the University of Minnesota. None remained in Estherville. Then, in 1939 the U of M loaned Estherville the slice that’s in the library. In 1980, since Estherville did not own its own piece of the meteorite, the Area Arts Council commissioned a sculpture. The resulting sculpture, by Tom Gibbs of Dubuque, Iowa, shows the meteorite fracturing into those three pieces. The sculpture is in Library Square. ❖

Machinery Pete keeps an eye on used machinery values By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer His business card with usual name, e-mail address and phone number also has two questions: “What’s it worth?” and “Where can I find it?” Machinery Pete, widely known to anyone buying or selling machinery, is otherwise known as Greg Peterson. He graduated with an accounting degree from Gustavus Adolphus Col-

lege in St. Peter, Minn., in 1988. His first job out of college was in accounting. However his Dad, Jerry Peterson, was a third generation farm implement dealer at Benson, Minn., so Greg simply says, “I grew up around farm machinery. But when I graduated from Gustavus it didn’t feel right to go home and join my Dad. Plus the ’80s were tough going for both farmers and implement dealers. “My wife, Jackie, also a Gustie grad-

Scholarships for organic transition

Relating to the growing world of collector machinery items he sees a new segment of people, often older farmers and retired farmers wanting to add that special 40-year-old tractor that was a prime power when they were active, but smaller farmers. “Powerful memories with a guy with a hunk of disposable income is where the premium money is being paid for these tractors.” You would think the auction business was mostly seasonal, mostly because of weather and the “farming time” of farmers. That used to be the routine with little auction time during the St. Patrick’s Day to early fall period, then pick up until the end of the year and into March. But today auctions are a year-round event with timing sometime a factor. “We’re seeing more nice farm auctions close to the start of planting, especially if it’s good equipment. Also quite a few auction companies now have their own indoor facility so year-round auctions can work, regardless the challenges of the weather,” said Peterson, now 46 years old. Because he loves what he’s doing he ventured that hopefully 30 years from now he’d still be quoting farm equipment prices. He wants as much total information to validate values. Like even pricing a set of 18.4-38 duals priced at $1,200 he wants to know if its 60-percent tread or 80-percent tread. “As best we can, we want to place the buyer at the auction and that means all the detailed information we can give a potential buyer. And that’s really the fun of my work. We’re constantly digging for info.” Peterson can be contacted at (800) 381-0423, greg@machinerypete.com or log on to MachineryPete.com. ❖
