Morrison: Don’t remove nutritious meat from diet rants and schools need to start by serving a lean cut of beef with plenty of fruits and vegetables, and not remove a valuable source of nutrition that many people are lacking.

OPINION

This commentary was submitted by Erin Morrison, who lives on her family’s beef farm near Belle Plaine, Minn. She is the current Minnesota beef ambassador. She recently gave this commentary as a speech in her regional FFA contest. ❖

MEATLESS, from pg. 5A tion. Other supplements do not provide the same quality of nutrients found in natural meat, and everyone deserves access to these valuable nutrients. Surprisingly, all of these nutrients don’t come in a calorie-high package. In fact the U.S. Department of Agriculture classifies 29 cuts of beef as lean meat because they contain less than 10 grams of fat in one serving. Lean beef that is trimmed contains about 5 percent fat. For some reason the U.S. media doesn’t show many complaints about the fat found in cheese, yet there are constantly reports of the horrible fat content found in meat. If more Americans were to properly choose and prepare cuts of lean beef they could be receiving a great source of nutrition in a low calorie and low fat count. A 2006 United Nations report, “Livestock’s Long Shadow,” shocked the world when it stated, “the livestock sector is a major player, responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.” They went on to claim that the livestock industry creates more greenhouse gasses than the transportation industry. While many experts have shown this claim to be inaccurate, most Americans have developed some misgivings about the practices American farmers use. The Monday Campaigns uses this misconception to convince people that skipping meat one day of every week will reduce our carbon footprint and lead the world in the race to reduce climate change. If the world is to continue to receive high-quality, nutritious food they should support the livestock industry and not fight it. With research money the beef industry has found many ways to make cattle more efficient, but if the industry experiences a reduction in demand or has a need to fight anti-beef campaigns they will lose resources that could be used for research. The Texas Beef Council reports that compared to 1960 there are half as many farmers and ranchers, but they are feeding a U.S. population that has more than doubled. Farmers and ranchers have found ways to be more efficient with the land and supplies they are given, and they will continue to make improvements in the methods they raise their cattle as long as they have the support of their consumers. Americans should continue supporting the beef industry seven days a week if they want to see improved farming efficiency. Now, one day a week doesn’t sound like anything to really worry about. However, there are 52 Mondays in the average year. With the average American needing 5.5 to 6 ounces of meat a day, Meatless Mondays is encouraging its followers to avoid 286 ounces of recommended meat. Is this a good idea when more than 70 percent of females age 20 and over aren’t receiving their recommended amount of meat daily the way it is? When nearly 80 percent of children ages 2 to 11 aren’t receiving the daily recommendation of meat do we want to worsen the problem by serving meatless entrées every Monday? If our society wants to make a healthier choice one day a week, parents, restau-

selves, or sells some sweet corn at the local farmers’ market, the reality is that farming innovations are born of necessity. Nearly a century ago, more than 50 percent of the U.S. population lived in rural areas, and 30 percent of the workforce was engaged in farming. But today, fewer than 2 percent of Americans farm for a living, and only 17 percent of Americans now live in rural areas. In 1940, the number of people fed annually by one U.S. farmer was 19. Today, that number is 155. Corn farmers, like me, are part of this trend. American corn farmers now grow five times as much corn as they did in the 1930s — on 20 percent less land. So it’s nice that Minnesotans recognize and appreciate what we do. OK, I think my 15 minutes is up. Back to work.

OPINION

THE LAND, MARCH 16, 2012

The state and federal partnership gearing up to develop the new Minnesota Agriculture Water Quality Certification Program is generating a lot of buzz. I am excited about the program’s potential to improve water quality by accelerating voluntary adoption of on-farm waterquality practices. Equally important, the program will help participating farmers by giving them greater certainty about future conservation requirements. One of the biggest questions people have asked is what kind of process would be set up by the agencies working on the project to ensure adequate input from the many interested stakeholder groups — particularly the farmers on whom the program will ultimately depend. This input is crucial to the success of the program.

Almost nine in 10 respondents agreed that farming was very important to Minnesota’s economy.

When asked to define that positive impact, approximately 65 percent of the answers listed supplying food, the economy and jobs.

Commentary: The Vikings — victims and victors It’s ironic that we remember the Vikings best for one small failure — their frozen far-north Greenland colony. We should instead be praising the Vikings for struggling through the cold and stormy Dark Ages, for designing those fabulous dragon ships, for swaggering their way through the abundance of the Medieval Warming — and ultimately for leaving many of their descendents in warmer locations to survive the Little Ice Age. Overall, the Norse were big winners in their struggles with the Earth’s abrupt climate change cycles. When the cold, stormy Dark Ages set in about A.D. 600, the Norse had just succeeded in clearing enough Scandinavian land to support their dairy cattle and a few hardy crops. They had also developed their famous long-ships, for catching codfish on the Dogger Banks offshore. Then, suddenly, the Dark Ages shortened the northern farmers’ already-short cropping season by weeks. The colder and stormier seas drove the codfish and herring further south, away from their nets and hand-lines. Even their trading voyages became far more dangerous.

Their cattle grew so weak and hungry in the longer, colder Greenland winters that they had to be carried out to the fields when spring finally arrived. D’Andrea says that the series of “little ice ages” not only froze the Greenland Norse, but also collapsed several Inuit cultures. The real wonder is that the Greenland Vikings lasted as long as they did — the farthest northern farming ever attempted, destroyed by an abrupt climate change they had no way to predict, prevent or adapt to. Fortunately, it was a small bet — only about 3,000 people. Still, even today, their fate haunts our dreams. When might we, too, become “unsustainable”? In truth we are always “unsustainable.” The fate of all cultures is at the whim of the climate: cold is far worse than warm, while drought is the scariest of all. Our expanding knowledge of the world’s 1,500-year climate cycles tells us to be vigilant and encourage technology to prepare for the climate changes that 2012 Salem 2012 Rockwood are certainly in our future.

Cover story:

Don’t horse around with equine health By KEVIN SCHULZ The Land Editor As spring nears, that means the season is nearing for horse shows, trail riding and heading to the race track. With that in mind, there is one main message to make sure it’s a healthy year for your horse — if you think your horse may be ill, leave it at home. “This is a big time of the year for shows, where you’ll have a lot of horses congregating in one location,” said Julie Wilson, veterinarian with Turner Wilson Equine Consulting LLC in Stillwater, Minn. “Whenever you have that, there’s a good chance for spread of diseases from horse to horse.” Travel to shows can be stressful for humans, but it can be even more stressful for horses. “It’s similar to people getting ready for a flight on a jet,” Wilson said. That added stress, and the sometimes close contact with other horses and different horse handlers, can make for a prime breeding ground for respiratory viruses and bacterial diseases.

One of the “best” ways to transfer a respiratory virus is through a horse’s nose, either from horse nose to horse nose, or even as innocent as show attendees petting one horse’s nose and then petting the nose of many others. “Cold weather helps, but we think the virus can live for a few days,” Wilson said. “The strangles virus can live for weeks.” Strangles is a virus similar to strep throat in humans. There are vaccines for the viruses, but “they don’t always work, and the vaccine for strangles does have side affects.” Some viruses can also live on the equipment and corral panels and gates. When taking your horse to a show, make sure that your horse’s vaccinations are up to date, and also be aware of the biosecurity measures in place for each particular show. See HEALTH, pg. 13A

Strict guidelines Biosecurity during horse events viral and bacterial diseases while on the road. This list was compiled by Roberta Dwyer, University of Kentucky for the Equine Disease Quarterly Newsletter, and then reprinted in the March University of Minnesota Horse Extension Team Newsletter. ❖

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

Following are biosecurity measures to implement when horses are congregated at events. • Minimize nose-to-nose contact between horses. Do not allow another horse to sniff your horse’s nose “to get acquainted.” • Do not share equipment for use with other people’s horses. Alternatively, if any equipment is loaned, keep it away from your horses until it is cleaned with a detergent, rinsed and properly disinfected. • Do not use common water troughs. Bring your own water and feed buckets. • Avoid common-use areas such as tack stalls used to groom and tack multiple horses. If these common areas must be used, use cross ties instead of tying horses to a post, wall, or other nose-to-nose contact area. • Halters, lead shanks and face-grooming towels should be used on one animal only and not shared between animals. • Wash your hands or use a 62 percent ethyl alcohol hand gel before and after handling or riding other people’s horses. • Early detection of disease is paramount, especially contagious infectious diseases. Take horses’ temperatures twice daily (morning and night) during the event and for two weeks after return to the stable. • Quarantine horses when they return to the barn or training facility after an event. • Clean and disinfect horse trailers before they’re used by other horses. These precautions do involve more work, more time and more awareness. However, it will help reduce the risk of horses being exposed to multiple

HEALTH, from pg. 12A Darrell Mead, first vice president of the Minnesota Horse Council and barn manager and security manager with the Minnesota Horse Expo, said the Minnesota Horse Expo is licensed by the Minnesota Board of Animal Health, and thus is held to strict guidelines. “We have a Minnesota State Fair authorized veterinarian on hand at all times,” Mead said. Each horse that comes in to the Expo has to have a Coggins test certificate, and horses coming from outside of Minnesota need to have full health certificates. The Coggins test checks for equine infectious anemia, a viral disease. In addition to checking health papers, the veterinarian checks each horse upon check-in for visible health, and “we do have a quarantine area in case we need. ... we’ve never had an outbreak at Minnesota Horse Expo,” said Mead who has been with Expo since 1992. “One advantage is that we’re the first horse show of the spring here,” he said. “So everything has been froze out, and the barns and everything have been thoroughly cleaned and sterilized.” Wilson recommends that new horse owners truly learn their horse inside and out, so they know what to look for to determine their horse’s health.

The Minnesota Horse Expo board of directors, staff and the Minnesota Horse Council board wish to salute the horse people, vendors and Expo-goers who have made the first 30 years of the Minnesota Horse Expo so successful. The Horse Expo has grown from its beginning in 1982 at the old downtown Minneapolis Convention Center. In 1987, it moved to the State Fairgrounds Coliseum and subsequently expanded to its current size, filling six State Fair buildings and the outside streets with booths and four additional buildings used for lectures and equine demonstrations. This makes the Minnesota Horse Expo the second-largest off-season event held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in terms of space used and attendance. Since the 1991 Horse Expo, the Minnesota Horse Exposition has presented the Minnesota Horse Council with over $3.4 million. These funds have gone back into the equine industry in various ways. This year, for instance, a contribution of $100,000 has been made by the Minnesota Horse Council to the State Fairgrounds with funds

The new site design allows supporters to sign up for informational updates and alerts and then offers an easy-to-use platform to contact state or federal elected officials. The REG, an active member of the National Biodiesel Board, plans to utilize the website, in part, to extend the industry’s federal policy outreach programs. “We have a unique opportunity to reach out to our base of business contacts and broaden the reach for biodiesel industry support,” Hedderich said of the new program. The company said that with biorefineries in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Texas, additional facilities to be completed in Louisiana, New Mexico and Kansas, and a nationwide logistics footprint it is important to identify and build localized support. ❖

The Minnesota 4-H Horse Program sponsored the first used clothing and tack sale at the Minnesota Horse Expo in 1985, which was held at the Minneapolis Auditorium. The area for the sale was in a hallway in the Exhibit Hall. Eight volunteers were asked to help with the sale, and the gross sales were $9,800 — 85 percent was paid to the consignors, 5 percent after expenses to

It wasn’t long before space ran out, and when Expo rented the Sheep and Poultry Barn the sale was moved to that building. That area was soon filled. In 2005 when Expo rented the Dairy Building, which is still the current location for the clothing and tack sale. Space is getting tight there as well. The first few years volunteers took turns organizing the sale. In 1991 Minnesota 4-H Horse Association voted Curt Baumgart as chairman, to organize the sale. He has been doing it ever since, along with a co-chair. For the past seven years his co-chair has been Al Vandenberghe. Margaret See TACK, pg. 19A

Beef Backer Award

Jax Café follows steak legacy to beef council honor By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer There’s little doubt steak is the ongoing legacy at Jax Café on University Avenue in Minneapolis. “Serving steaks, not trends” is the slogan of Bill Kozlak Jr. their marketing marquee. Now into its 78th year, Bill Kozlak Jr. follows in his father and grandfather’s footsteps by preserving the rich traditions of Jax Café. A copy of the 1933 menu had steaks priced at 50 cents. Executive Chef Bob Foster, now into his seventh year at Jax Café, has more than 30 years of cooking experience. How does a veteran like Foster judge meat quality? “Ultimately it’s the color, the marbling, even the firmness of the meat. Certified Black Angus beef is virtually the only beef served here. Occasionally we use some select and choice grades depend-

ing upon specials being offered.” Occasionally a customer asks for grassfed beef but Foster said that’s seldom. He believes in natural feedstuffs but he credits the success of Bob Foster beef in the American diet to the quality genetics and nutrition programs of American cattle producers. It is that appreciation and dedication to cattle producers that earned Jax Café the Minnesota Beef Backer Award from the Minnesota Beef Council. “We really appreciate what our cattlemen have done to keep the quality of American beef at such a high standard,” Foster said. “We’re continually receiving compliments from our customers on the tenderness, the taste and the overall flavor and quality of our steaks. That praise should go directly to our ranchers and cattle

feeders because that’s where it all really originates from.” Deserving some credit for that delicious flavor of a Jax steak is a special seasoning made exclusively for this restaurant. Two of his tips for tasty steaks include seasoning well and letting meat come up to temperature before putting in a 600-degreeFahrenheit oven or over a hot grill. “Taking it directly from the freezer just simply slows the entire cooking process, plus you lose much of the moisture, some of the mineral content, there’s even some loss of vitamins.” Foster works with both “aged” beef and fresh cuts but indicated there’s a tint of “gaminess” in aged beef. “Aging beef in itself is a real art,” he said, “and unless you’re committed to doing that on all your beef, it’s not an endeavor I’m willing to get into. I love going out to places that have aged beef. I’ve done that in Chicago, New York, New Orleans. But for me in this industry it’s better to stay with cryovac processed beef.” Interestingly this award-winning

chef said people are becoming less afraid of fat. He chuckled, “We as a species didn’t start evolving until we started eating meat. You simply need some fat in your diet to keep you healthy, happy and whole. Fat is flavor. We in food preparation know that. Don’t be afraid of fat but like most things, moderation is best.” He says 1 1/2-inch cuts are best for rib eye steaks. With an 8-ounce filet mignon he goes with a slightly thinner cut. The most popular steak at Jax Café is “filet mignon by a huge margin,” Foster said. “We’re honored to present this award to a restaurant with such a rich history as Jax Café. We know diners at this place leave with a good feeling about the quality of Minnesota beef,” said John Moon, Minnesota Beef Council chairman.

Cattleman credits Vitamin E, DDGs first started in the business, he said feeder calves were mostly in that 500to 600-pound bracket. “Last year I had four groups of calves trucked in and they were all over 700 pounds. Calves are getting bigger framed; the genetics have improved substantially. We start feeding usually in late October. My goal is a 1,325pound pay weight delivered to PM Beef in April-May and it’s achievable.” He credits wet mash (about 50 percent moisture) from the ethanol plant at Atwater, Minn., as a major improvement in this feeding program. “Last summer during that hot July stretch, this wet DDG feed kept the palatability of our ration so that cattle came to the feed bunk every day even during that stretch of 100-degree temps.” He trucks in 24 tons of wet mash per delivery, enough for four to five days in his 500-head feedlot. This ethanol plant offers an additive which extends the usage period of the DDG feedstock, but Malacek said it really hasn’t been an issue. He feeds twice daily for better “bunk management” and slightly better feed intake per animal. ❖

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Mark Malacek, a Redwood Falls, Minn.,area cattleman and board member of the Minnesota Beef Council, is appreciative of the special efforts of Jax Café to be continually sourcing the highest-quality beef. Malacek is doing something special to make his beef even more appealing. He’s adding Vitamin E into his finishing ration 50 days prior to slaughter as part of a special program by PM Beef at Windom, Minn., to build more “eye appeal” of select beef in retail counters. “The beef retains more of the redness color in the meat. And this adds to consumer eye appeal,” Malacek said. He sources vitamin E through the Worthington (Minn.) Vet Clinic. PM Beef offers a premium price to cattle producers getting into this program. For Malacek, this program also provides a comfort level that he enjoys with his PM Beef buyer. Malacek feeds only black Angus feeders purchased through the Lamberton stockyards from the same Montana source for the past seven to eight years. Reflecting back 20 years when he

$15 trillion debt casts huge shadows By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer According to Mark Schultz of North Star Commodity, the European debt crisis lessens financial confidence around the world, and he predicts it will be around for “a long time.” The $15 trillion U.S. debt only adds to the financial gloom. By 2020 U.S. debt could be roughly $23 trillion. But he said that according to White House “insiders” if we do 5 percent annual growth of GDP we will have more growth than we will have debt. “That’s all great in theory,” Schultz said, but the reality more likely is the 3 percent growth which has been America’s pace the past three years. His charts projected additional new debt each year of about $1.65 trillion. “Even if budget cuts are doubled, we face an incredible obstacle that likely will take years to resolve. Instead we apparently are attempting to spend our way out of debt, and history tells us that is very difficult to achieve,” Schultz said. Nonetheless, he’s fairly bullish on investments in the U.S. stock market. His next target on the Dow Jones is 14,500. In fact, he mentioned an outside possibility of the Dow reaching 17,000 within the next year. If it drops below 10,500 then significant problems are inevitable. “However if the U.S. and world economy continues to march even a little bit stronger, the demand for your farm products gets stronger. A growing economy is the catalyst that builds this demand-driven market that feeds the world,” Schultz said. On crop outlook, he mentioned the South American corn crop got into a December and January dry pattern which he thinks hurt their crop enough to take

400 million bushels off the total South American crop. That’s a positive for U.S. corn producers. He thinks even minor weather scares could take the corn market up sharply higher, like $7 or more. He noted that Chinese farmers have increased their corn production three consecutive years and, if weather cooperates, China could see a 300-millionbushel increase for 2012. “The other obstacle for grain producers is that everyone who uses your product has flattened out their demand. There’s no expansion in livestock, no new ethanol plants being built, so the only real bright spot is continuing growth in corn exports. But that, too, depends heavily on the economy of China and a few other Asian countries,” Schultz said. Reflecting on the four “golden years” of ag prosperSee SHADOW, pg. 23A

gested there could be even more corn acres at the expense of soybeans. Ethanol margins are getting dicey, Schultz said, and could get tougher since gas consumption is down in America and current ethanol-gasoline blending is only to meet the mandated 10 percent level in most markets. Approval of E85 could be a significant boost for ethanol usage, however the issue now seems to be hung up in further Environmental Protection Agency regulations. The ongoing increase in gas prices may be mostly because four major Gulf Coast refineries are slowed due to construction upgrades. “Perhaps this reversal of fortunes is great for a few folks. With 3 1/2 percent to 4 percent interest on 30-year loans, it’s now often cheaper to buy housing than rent,” Schultz said. He said that the popularity of the U.S. Congress is now at only 9 percent. “That’s barely above the ranking of Fidel Castro,” Schultz quipped. Schultz was one of the speakers at the recent ag outlook meetings hosted around Minnesota by the Linder Farm Network. ❖

SHADOW, from pg. 22A ity, he said it could continue but at a slower pace. Depleted soil moisture in much of the Upper Midwest is the risk factor for the 2012 crop year. He’s hoping that the worst of weather challenges are behind us. “If weather stabilizes, then I think markets stabilize, maybe even turn up some. The opportunity is still there for another good year,” he said. He cautions about pricing the 2012 crop, like no more than 40 percent on the corn, 30 percent on the beans. Schultz said the fundamentals look weak currently but not so when you look at the charts. The world’s growing population keeps agriculture in the driver’s seat regardless. He doubts the dry trend will move acres out of corn and into soybeans. His logic being that if farmers are planting early this year, which likely will happen based on weather patterns, then corn acres will stay corn acres simply because early planting should mean the corn crop is that much further advanced when the late-July and August hotter, drier weather will likely happen. In fact, under this scenario he sug-

Dayton signs legislation removing export barrier for ag firms Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton recently signed legislation removing a trade barrier for Minnesota agricultural businesses looking to export feed to Brazil. Brazilian authorities recently announced a new set of import regulations that included a requirement for companies sending feed to Brazil to provide a certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices compliance. While the new federal Food Safety Modern-

ization Act includes provisions for such a certificate, they are not expected to be implemented for several months. Without a process for providing the certificate required by Brazil, Minnesota companies would be unable to supply feed to that large and growing market. After executives with Marshallbased RALCO Nutrition alerted state officials to this problem, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and state

legislators worked together to develop House File 1926 to bridge the gap. Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson said the legislation signed by Gov. Dayton will allow Minnesota companies to meet the new Brazilian import requirements until the federal government implements FSMA later this year. “Export markets are very important for our agricultural economy,” Frederickson said. “Thanks to this bill, Minnesota farmers and feed companies will not have to worry about losing access to an important export market.” HF 1926 creates a temporary process for issuing a state certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices for Minnesota facilities producing commercial feed and feed ingredients. It establishes criteria for good manufacturing practices, and gives the MDA authority to inspect facilities upon request. The legislation also stipulates that the new federal rules will be adopted into

state law once they are finalized later this year. “This was a great example of people working together to solve a problem,” Frederickson said. “I want to thank the legislators who worked on this bill, especially the chief authors Sen. Gary Dahms and Rep. Chris Swedzinksi, for helping us make sure Minnesota farmers and agricultural firms can continue supplying high-quality feed to customers in Brazil.” Minnesota is the sixth largest agricultural exporter among the 50 states. Exports contribute one-third of Minnesota’s total agricultural sales, and support more than 40,000 jobs. According to the MDA, each dollar of agricultural exports generates an additional $1.36 in economic and business activities for the state.

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Ask John Baize to reflect on what’s happened since 2008 when change was the buzzword and you expect a few comments. Baize is a long-time international traveler and renowned spokesman for the America Soybean Association. Here are excerpts from a private question-andanswer session with Baize, who is never bashful regardless the issues. Q: Is America well on its way to becoming a socialistic society because voters keep on voting for the source of their entitlements? Baize: America is on a troubling trend. Coming through this current recession means lots of people are hurting. That means people are open to anybody who offers a lifeline. But the flip side is that millions of younger people who got fired up about Candidate Obama in 2008 are now disenchanted with what they’ve seen. So this could mean a significant vote switch, or simply no voting among this sector. The thing that troubles me the most is this ongoing conversation that we’ve become a country of two nations; a nation of wealth and the nation of people without money. I appreciate that too much income disparity is a problem. But 47 percent of our population now pays zero income tax which means obviously richer people are paying a huge portion of our total taxes.

Injured canines need quick attention, but be careful In seconds your life can be changed forever. As distractions increase for drivers, so does the number of car accidents. Unfortunately, pets are often affected by distracted drivers and can incur serious injury. “On average, here at the Texas A&M Small Animal ER, we tend to see at least three to five animals that have been hit by a car each week,” said Brooke Smith, veterinary resident instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. “Most of the victims are medium to large dog breeds that were playing somewhere off leash and ran into the road or dogs that escaped from the back yard,” Smith said. “We do see smaller dogs and cats, but unfortunately due to their size and the amount of trauma a vehicle can cause, they sometimes pass away before they make it to the hospital.” If you do see an animal hit by a car, please call your local Animal Control Officer on duty immediately. “Animals that have sustained serious trauma will be in a lot of pain,” Smith said, “and there is a high risk that a good Samaritan will be bitten while trying to help the hurt animal. Animal Control Officers are trained to handle these situations.” If you witness your pet getting injured, ask someone to assist you to place the animal in your car and bring it to the nearest emergency care facility.

Planting site requirements for marigolds are full sun and a welldrained soil. The planting site should receive at least six hours of direct sun per day. Poorly drained soils can often be improved by incorporating organic matter (compost, peat or well-rotted manure) into the soil. Are marigolds pest-free? While marigolds are seldom bothered by insects and diseases, they are not problem-free. Spider mites can devastate marigolds in hot, dry weather. Grasshoppers can also cause considerable damage. Aster yellows is an occasional disease problem. Aster yellows is caused by microorganisms called phytoplasmas. The disease is transmitted from plant to plant by sap-sucking insects, such as leafhoppers. Marigolds infected with aster yellows are stunted, yellow-green in color and their flower buds fail to open. Infected plants should be dug up and destroyed. Can I keep rabbits out of my vegetable garden by planting marigolds around the perimeter? Marigolds do not repel rabbits, deer or other animals. In fact, rabbits occasionally browse heavily on marigolds. Erecting a chicken wire or hardware cloth fence around the vegetable garden is the best way to keep rabbits out of the garden. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach horticulture specialists answer questions about starting and growing marigolds. To have additional questions answered, contact Dennis Carlson, Franklin County Extension Horticulture Program Assistant by phone at (641) 456-4811, e-mail dennisc@iastate.edu or contact the ISU Hortline, at (515) 2943108 or hortline@iastate.edu. ❖

A native of Mexico, marigolds have been grown in gardens throughout the world for hundreds of years. Today, they are one of the most popular bedding plants in the United States. Marigolds are easy to grow, bloom reliably all summer, and have few insect and disease problems. The marigold’s only shortcoming (for some people) is its pungent aroma. When can I plant marigolds outdoors? Two planting options are available when planting marigolds. Most gardeners set out plants in spring. However, gardeners can also sow marigold seeds directly outdoors. Plant marigold seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost is past. It’s usually safe to begin planting marigolds in late-April in southern Iowa and mid-May in northern portions of the state. Plants purchased at greenhouses or started indoors should be hardened or acclimated to outdoor conditions for several days prior to planting. Initially place plants in a shady, protected location and then gradually expose them to longer periods of sunlight. Sow marigold seeds outdoors when the danger of frost is past. Plant seeds one-quarter inch deep. When should I sow marigold seeds indoors? Sow marigold seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. Lightly cover seeds with one-fourth inch of Jiffy Mix or other soilless medium. If given favorable temperatures and moisture conditions, the marigold seeds should begin to germinate in five to seven days. What would be a good planting site for marigolds?

TABLE TALK, from pg. 32A on them to be fed and cared for — thus, you’ll see farm kids carrying four hay bales or four full feed pails at a time across the yard to where the animals are, lifting them over fences to get them fed. There is manure to be pitched, lambs and calves to be pulled, hogs to load, dual tractor tires to wrestle with and mount, and more. Training on many different levels takes place all year long for Iowa farm kids who dare to wrestle. There are so many great stories that come out of high school wrestling. One of my favorite transformations is the one that takes places as wrestlers from around our county gather in Des Moines for “the big one.” At that time, wrestlers who were opponents during the regular season now cheer each other on. But not everyone wins. And those losses are tough to take — because those losses are theirs alone. This year as one of our local wrestlers lost out on his dream at the district meet, he ended up later in the arms of his older brother — who had also experienced that same reality during his senior year — and cried bittersweet tears of disappointment, leaning on someone who understood how painful that kind of loss felt. For him, there will be next year. But for another wrestler on our team, the story was much different.

Doctor’s orders — Laughter really is the best medicine When was the last time you had a really good laugh? The scientific definition of laughing is a “successive, rhythmic, spasmodic expiration with open glottis and vibration of the vocal cords, often accompanied by baring of the teeth and facial expression.” That doesn’t begin to tell the story of what laughing does for us, however. The bottom line is that laughing is medically beneficial. Laughter establishes or restores a positive emotional climate and a sense of connection between two people. In fact, some researchers believe that the major function of laughter is to bring people together. The more social a person is and the more

social support a person receives, the more likely that laughter will result from that social connection. Mutual laughter and play are an essential component of strong, healthy relationships. By making a conscious effort to incorporate more humor and play into your daily interactions, you can improve the quality of your relationships. What are the physical effects of laughing? Laughing makes people feel good for a reason. Studies have shown that laughter boosts the immune system and triggers the release of pleasureinducing neurochemicals in the brain. The immune system, which contains special cells that are responsible for defending the body against infection, have been shown to increase during the act of laughing. In the central nervous system, the brain releases powerful endorphins as a result of laughing. Endorphins are natural, morphine-like compounds that raise the pain threshold, produce sedation and induce euphoria (commonly called a “natural high”). In other words, we feel better when we laugh because endorphins reduce physical and mental pain. While this may be a wonderful feeling, laughing has other benefits as well. • During a laugh, respiration, heart rate and blood pressure temporarily rise. This causes oxygen to surge through the bloodstream that then results in lower blood pressure. • Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect against a heart attack and other cardiovascular

problems. • Laughter reduces pain and allows toleration of discomfort. • Laughter reduces blood sugar levels, increasing glucose tolerance in diabetics and non-diabetics alike. • Laughter relaxes the whole body, relieving tension and stress. It has been shown that following a good, hearty laugh, muscles in the body are relaxed for up to 45 minutes afterward. • Laughing burns calories. Laughter is sometimes referred to as “inner jogging.” A hearty laugh gives the muscles of the face, chest, shoulders, stomach and diaphragm a good workout. Laughter also helps to create a positive mood. It allows the expression of happiness and the release of anxiety. Humor eases tension and is a great antidote to a stressful situation. Laughter is often seen as a temporary vacation from everyday problems, bringing us to a paradise in which worries do not exist. Humor and laughter are natural safety valves that shut off certain hormones that are released during stressful situations. In fact, your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health. Here are some ways to bring more humor and laughter into your life. See LAUGHTER, pg. 36A

The AgStar Fund for Rural America, the corporate giving program of AgStar Financial Services, is proud to once again offer a $50,000 grant program to support county fair facility upgrades. The mission of this program is to support rural areas by funding county fair organizations as they maintain or upgrade fairground livestock buildings and judging arenas. Each county in AgStar’s local service area can apply for up to $2,500 to be used toward repairs on fairground agricultural buildings. The AgStar Fund’s goal is to support county fair organizations as repairs are made to fairground livestock buildings, 4-H buildings or livestock judging arenas. “Many county fair budgets just don’t have the funding to make necessary repairs to buildings that make the fair experience what it is,” said John Monson, chair of AgStar’s Fund Board

of Trustees. “This program allows county fairs to provide the best fair experience possible for communities in rural America.” Applications considered for funding must be submitted online at www.AgStar.com. This grant program is accepting applications through March 31. County fair associations and 4-H groups located in one of the 69 counties within AgStar’s chartered territory are eligible to apply if they have not received a grant from AgStar in the past two years. Since its inception in 2001, the AgStar Fund has donated in excess of $3 million to organizations working to improve the future of rural America. Support must align with the fund’s mission of enhancing life in agriculture and rural America. Log on to www.AgStar.com for more information. ❖

absurdities and who routinely find humor in everyday events. Their playful point of view and laughter are contagious. • Bring humor into conversations — Ask people: What’s the funniest thing that happened to you today? This week? In your life? • Laugh at yourself — Share your embarrassing moments. • Attempt to laugh at situations rather than bemoan them — Look for the humor in a bad situation, the irony and absurdity of life. This will help improve your mood and the mood of those around you. • Surround yourself with reminders to lighten up — Keep a toy on your desk or in your car. Put up a funny poster in your office. Choose a computer screensaver that makes you laugh. Frame photos of you and your family having fun. • Keep things in perspective —

Many things are beyond our control, so make the best of a situation and find the positive in the situation. • Deal with stress — Stress is a major impediment to humor and laughter. • Pay attention to children and emulate them — They are the experts on playing, taking life lightly and laughing. Here is a simple prescription for a healthy life: Thirty minutes of exercise at least three times a week, and 15 minutes of laughter on a daily basis. The bottom line — laughter may just be the best medicine on the market today. Information adapted from article by Helen Hunter, ACSW, LSW in Oct. 21, 2010 Caregiver.com Newsletter.

Choosing a medical alert system can be confusing The certification a caregiver should look for in a medical monitoring service is “UL-listed.” UL stands for Underwriters Laboratory. A listed center is one that has met certain requirements with equipment, building, staffing, etc. To be listed, these standards must be met at all times. With some careful consideration and preparation, a caregiver can make a well-educated decision when

Choosing a medical alert system has become more complicated as the available options on the market have increased and the technology has changed and improved. However, through the myriad of options, there is a common sense baseline of safety and security these systems provide to a loved one and their caregiver. Knowing that someone is available at all times in case of emergency helps everyone sleep better at night. There are generally two types of systems available: monitoring and non-monitoring. With a monitoring service, when an alert is activated, a live person communicates with a loved one, assesses the situation and dispatches public safety appropriately. Also, the service notifies family members or neighbors. The other option is the less-expensive, non-monitored assistance alert. This is in case of an emergency and may provide life-saving information to first responders such as medications, allergies, conditions, etc. Also, a lockbox could provide a key for emergency personnel to use and enter a home when the need arises. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while searching for the perfect alert system to meet a loved one’s needs. Cost Although cost is a key factor when choosing a system, a caregiver should not allow a low cost to be the only consideration. What is the quality of service? Some suggest a caregiver ask for a free trial period, to see if the service is up to their standard and covers a loved one’s needs adequately. Range What is the range of the device? If a loved one falls in a bathroom, do they have access with them? Is it in another room? Can the person responding still hear them? Response center The system is only as good as the center behind it. One important question to ask a potential supplier is what the response center does in an emergency. Does the call go to the center or directly to 911? Some people may think 911 is the better answer, but actually a response center should be trained to handle these emergencies and also contact loved ones. Also, what is the center’s average response time, specific training offered for staff, and procedures used to test the alert system? Contract Like any other service agreement, it’s important to read the fine print before signing on the dotted line. Does the company have a cancellation policy? What is it? What does it cost? The last thing a caregiver wants in an already-stressful time is to deal with unexpected costs and issues. Know the details ahead of time to make the best decision before you commit. Peer reviews What are others saying about prospective alert systems? A caregiver can check with the Better Business Bureau, online reviews and also talk to neighbors and friends who have a system. Find out what they like and don’t like, then present those findings to companies of interest. Transmitter Does the transmitter have a certain battery life? Who monitors that? How often is it checked and who is responsible for replacing the battery? Certification

This year it will celebrate its 100th anniversary. Special events are planned for June 22-24, Kramer said. Each year approximately 25,000 to 30,000 people visit the site. “I am amazed every day to look out my window at the beauty of the Grotto and walk through it each summer day,” Kramer said. “People ask me if seeing it each day makes it ‘old hat,’ and for me, it does not. I never cease being totally in awe of the work of Father Dobberstein.” On a beautiful warm, January day, the visitors were few. I could roam at my own pace and ponder things anew. ❖

science, but rather an art. “In the accounting world if you have two plus two, you get four. But in the appraisal world, if you have two and two, you get somewhere between three and five.” Both Kluis and Carlson agreed that farmers are willing to pay more for good quality land, rather than paying for lower quality land. “You’re also seeing people willing to travel a little further for that better quality land, rather than buying some lesser land only because it’s close to land you already run,” Kluis said. In addition to giving appraisers, farm managers and consultants a snapshot of the land value environment, these studies also help them in fielding calls from absentee landlords. “We’ll get a call from someone in California wondering what the cash rent in a certain county is going for, because they are getting paid this amount. … We can then ask them more specifics about their land and help them get to a fairer asking price,” Kluis said. “Of course, every landlord has the best land out there.” Carlson’s report compiled results from a select 10 ASFMRA members for activity in their specific area of Minnesota. Each of the 10 respondents offered the low, medium and high for their region in each of these categories: corn yield, cash

rent, ratio dollars per bushel and estimated value. That report gives a geographic slice of the land environment across the state. High-quality farmland in the northwestern part of Minnesota brought $180 cash rent an acre and value of $3,600 per acre, while a number of regions across the state showed cash rents at $350 or more per acre. The southwest region had two land sales last fall that broke the $12,000 per acre barrier. Ward Nefstead, University of Minnesota professor of applied economics, issued a press release with the reports’ findings. In that he stated that 67 percent of respondents indicated the length of cash rental contracts were predominately one-year, and less than 5 percent of the land rental contracts were of the flex-rent variety. Kluis’ survey covered a lot more than just the values of land sales and cash rents. It also covered cropping plans, average size tract of farmland sold, reason for sellers selling land, among other factors. Those wishing to get a copy of the reports should contact Kluis at fkluis@hoysler.com or Carlson at lcarlson@ummcorp.com. ❖

Sell the rumor, buy the fact

Markets showing different personality

Is buying land the answer?

The following market analysis is for the week ending March 9. CORN — After a higher start to the week, corn turned defensive as it headed into the U.S. Department of Agriculture monthly crop report and Informa Economics’ reports both released on March 9. May corn traded a fairly wide weekly range from $6.65 1/4 to $6.31 3/4 per bushel. This week’s low matched last week’s low, which should now act as technical support. Confirmed export news was absent from the marketplace during the week and anticipation of a big acreage number prompted some profit taking after the recent run-up. PHYLLIS NYSTROM New crop suffered the same sell-off Country Hedging fate as old crop, until the March 9 St. Paul reports turned prices higher. The reports were not that bullish on their own; it seemed more of a sell-the-rumor, buy-the-fact type trade. The end-of-week rally was attributed to post-report rumors of China buying up to 23.6 million bushels (600,000 metric tons) of U.S. corn. Calculations show a positive margin to import U.S. corn into China. There was also talk that China may ease their monetary policy to stimulate their economy, and possibly lead to more buying. This week’s weekly export sales however were disappointing at 17.6 million bushels for old crop and 2.3 million for new crop. To recap the March 9 USDA report: 2011-12 carryout was unchanged at 801 million bushels, but higher than the pre-report estimates of 785 million bushels. All categories on the U.S. balance sheet were unchanged. The average farm price range consolidated to $5.90 to $6.50 from the $5.70 to $6.70 range last month.

So far March has seen the livestock markets have a different personality than in the previous months. Instead of driving higher under the influx of money into the futures, the fundamentals are finally appearing to command more market attention. Once again the cattle market has put in some sort of top. Whether this is a long-term top or just another short-term correction is yet to be determined. However, because there appears to be a change taking place in the underlying psychology in the cattle market, chances are becoming greater that some sort of meaningful high in prices may be in the process of being established. JOE TEALE Beef cutouts have been on the rise Broker as packers have pushed to increase Great Plains Commodity these prices to cover their costs of Afton, Minn. live inventories. Because of the higher cutout prices demand for beef has slipped and inventories of beef product is beginning to build. With carcass weights above year-ago levels, total beef production has expanded despite the fewer numbers of marketable cattle. These bearish fundamentals are now trumping the speculative money that has poured into the futures, and it now seems as if the cash market is becoming the leader once again in price discovery, not the futures. This does not preclude the fact that the futures may make another attempt to rally under more speculative buying, but the fundamentals are definitely gaining overall command of the marketplace. Unless we see a drastic change in the world economic situation, producers should consider taking protection of live inventories on any strength. Hog prices have been struggling since their highs last August. See TEALE, pg. 3B

Several weeks ago a grain producer asked me what I thought about buying farmland at this time. He told me that an 80-acre tract that he had been renting was for sale and that he was interested in buying the property. He told me how much he thought he would have to pay for it. He also told me that times had been good and that he had enough cash to pay for the land outright. I asked him how old he was and if he had any children who were wanting to farm. He told me his age and mentioned that his daughter and son-in-law were joining the operation, as he was planning on retiring in a few years. Then he told me that if he bought the 80 acres, he would TOM NEHER have an option to rent an additional AgStar VP & Team Leader 320 acres that was adjacent to the — Grain Industry property. He asked me again, “what Rochester, Minn. do you think that I should do?” I told him that I knew times had been good for the grain producers and that land was currently a hot commodity. I shared my concern that the profit margins he had grown accustomed to, may soon be challenged. I suggested that he look at several other investments before he locked his capital into land. That if times change and profits were challenged, he would want to make sure that he had invested in assets that would give him an edge on profitability. First of all, build a “war chest” of working capital. This would mean paying some taxes, yet this money would act as “shock absorbers” for the business during harder times. In other words, save some today to play tomorrow. Secondly, invest in drainage tile to help make his current land more productive. When he is challenged with smaller profit margins, he will need all of the production power that he can find. Thirdly, invest in grain bins and dryers. Under-

Soybeans moved higher on good export sales last year’s 10.6 million acres. The USDA will release their Prospective Plantings report on March 30. Warmer weather moving into the Midwest should allow fieldwork to move into the “I” states by mid-March. Early planting will encourage ideas of more corn acres and a reduced weather threat during pollination. Fifty percent of the U.S. corn crop is usually planted by May 5. I would expect December corn to struggle to regain the $5.80 to $6 area without a perceived threat to the scenario. OUTLOOK: Corn took a licking for the majority of the week, only to finish on a strong note. Cash markets have remained firm with spreads tightening to inverses, indicating the upfront demand for corn. As long as China shows it’s profitable to import U.S. corn, the

Possible hog prices will improve With seasonal tendencies leaning toward improving prices into the latter spring months and the value of pork in comparison to other meats, it is quite possible that hog prices may improve slightly in the months ahead. But since the economic picture has changed little, these rallies will likely be limited to some degree. Producers should continue to use the premiums offered and the possibility of forthcoming rallies to protect their inventories though the summer months. ❖

$10.95 to $12.45 per bushel last month. On the global front, Brazil’s soybean production estimate dropped 3.5 mmt to 68.5 mmt and Argentina’s forecast fell 1.5 mmt to 46.5 mmt. World soybean ending stocks fell from 60.3 mmt last month to 57.3 mmt on the latest report. This would be the smallest world carryout figure since 2008-09. While the cuts in production were slightly more than the trade was expecting for Argentina and Brazil, their exports were left unchanged, which was disappointing for the U.S. export outlook. Informa Economics’ new soybean acreage estimate increased 560,000 acres from last month to 75.1 million acres.This is 152,000 acres more than was planted last year. Normally, 10 percent of the U.S. bean crop is planted by May 1. One private firm estimates that Brazil’s bean harvest was 46 percent complete versus 33 percent on average. Farmer selling was projected at 52 percent versus 43 percent on average. Basis levels have held up in spite of the ahead of normal selling and harvest pace. OUTLOOK: May soybeans were up 9 1/2 cents this week to close at $13.37 3/4 and the November contract was up 7 1/4 cents at $13.05 1/4 per bushel. The current trend is higher, but don’t be surprised on some profit taking with everyone leaning to the long side. Fund length may be nearing a record. The $13 to $14 area is the current range for May soybeans, with November seeing $12.75 to $13.50 per bushel. ❖

TEALE, from pg. 2B Even though we have seen prices recover somewhat since their lows in December, the rallies have been minor and short in duration. Hog numbers seem to be adequate to meet current demand both domestically and internationally, even with the increased export demand. Pork cutouts have waffled back and forth in the lower $80 per hundredweight for quite some time and at this point seems as if they are bound to stay in this trading range for the near future.

near-term downside should be limited. For the week, May corn was down a dime at $6.45 and the December contract was 7 1/2 cents lower at $5.62 1/2 per bushel. First support in May corn lies at $6.31 3/4, then in the low $6.20s with resistance still sitting in the mid $6.60s. The range for December corn currently is $5.50 to $5.85 per bushel while it anticipates the March 30 USDA plantings report. SOYBEANS — Soybeans moved higher throughout the week on good export sales, concern over South American production and fund buying. May soybeans have closed higher 16 times out of the last 20 trading sessions on the Chicago Board of Trade, including the March 9 lower close. November beans sliced through $13 resistance after the neutral to bullish USDA report. China’s on-going interest in buying U.S. beans has been a major factor in the higher trend. On the weekly export sales report, old crop sales were 37.3 million bushels and new crop sales were 23.2 million bushels, nearly half of the old crop sales and two-thirds of the new crop sales were made to China. The March 9 USDA crop report was neutral when it left the 2011-12 carryout unchanged from last month at 275 million bushels.This was also in-line with expectations. As in corn, no usage categories were touched. However, the average farm price range was raised to $11.40 to $12.60 from

NYSTROM, from pg. 2B On the world scene, carryout fell from 125.4 million metric tons to 124.5 mmt. While lower than last time, it was still slightly higher than the 123.5 mmt estimate. Argentina’s corn estimate was unchanged from the last report at 22 mmt, while Brazil’s increased 1 mmt to 62 mmt. Informa Economics coincidentally released their updated survey based acreage estimates on March 9 also. They are pegging corn acres at 95.5 million acres, up 3.6 million acres from this past year and 765,000 higher than Informa’s January estimate. Total crop acreage is forecasted at 324.6 million acres, up 11.7 million from last year. The largest increases come from Texas, Missouri, South Dakota, Indiana and North Dakota. Prevented planted acreage is projected at 2.4 million versus

Off-farm investments recommended I told him that if his daughter and son-in-law were coming into the operation, this would add a second family that the current farm would need to support. That if he was going to retire, he would need to start taking money out of the farm to support this life change. If the farm economy were to change, the farm could be weakened financially to the point of losing a competitive edge. Funds set aside in an IRA or 401(k) plan could help to fund his retirement, without cannibalizing the farm in the process. Then I told him that after making these other investments, he would be in a position of strength to purchase more farmland. I also admitted that I didn’t have all of the answers to his questions. I confessed that these were just a few of the things that keep me awake at night. ❖

A 10-cent difference in a basis bid may be the difference in profitability, in a tight margin environment. Then look at updating any machinery that needs to be replaced. During tight margin conditions, it may be difficult to afford replacements. Finally, I brought up the subject that I knew would raise his eyebrows. Invest his extra capital into a nonfarm-related, individual retirement account or 401(k). He could invest a significant portion of his taxable income “pre-tax,” lowering the amount of taxes to be paid today (consult a professional tax adviser for details). He told me that the farm was his retirement account and that this would not be needed.

BouMatic, global dairy equipment and chemical manufacturer, recently introduced its HiFlo Evolution pulsator, making it the newest addition to a long line of legendary pulsators developed by the company. “Pulsators are the beating heart of any dairy operation and BouMatic’s legendary HiFlo pulsator has filled that very special place on thousands of dairy operations across the world for many years,” said Dennie Plomedahl, BouMatic brand manager. “The HiFlo could only be replaced by BouMatic’s new HiFlo Evolution.” “Recently we retrofit a 2-by-16 parlor with the new HiFlo Evolution pulsator and it took only two hours for two men to complete the job, while milking was under way,” said Matt Leonard, BouMatic dealer of Argall Dairy Systems at Belleville, Wis. “With no stall cock and an excellent wiring harness, installation time was cut in half, maybe more. The dairy operator loves the ease of maintenance and added safety of his new pulsators.” BouMatic dealer, Kevin Bartsh of Dairyland Equipment, Bloomer, Wis. said, “we installed the HiFlo Evolution in 2-by-20 and 2-by-30 parlors with amazing ease. The 2-by-20 took us just three hours including wiring and graphing. The 2-by-30 parlor took only two hours. “It’s my opinion the wiring harness is the best thing BouMatic ever did for pulsation. It makes the installation quick, easy and most important, correct every time. Our customers are very pleased they made the move to the HiFlo Evolution.” Another BouMatic dealer, John Seehafer of Seehafer Refrigeration at Marshfield, Wis., said, “we installed 16 HiFlo Evolution pulsators recently and it took just 45 minutes from start to finish on a new parlor.” The dairy industry’s first viable commercial pulsator was developed by BouMatic in 1939 and changed the business of dairying forever,” Plomedahl said. “Lawrence Bouma was the genius behind our first pulsator and it immediately developed into a business he called BouMatic. The rest is history.” The performance advantage of the HiFlo Evolution is found in its low-cost service requirement, easy installation and rugged durability. Periodic service can be performed in about one minute compared to more complex pulsators on the market today and the HiFlo Evolution can quickly and seamlessly retrofit into virtually any brand of existing milking parlor. The HiFlo Evolution pulsator boasts a simple, robust design requiring only eight different parts. It is manufactured in the United States. with the highest quality materials and components and requires no tools or special handling for its service and maintenance. BouMatic is a leader in the development of innovative products for dairy operators throughout the world ranging from cow traffic systems, milk harvest equipment, automation and management systems, milk cooling systems, dairy hygiene and sanitation technologies.

Lime Spreading “Have you checked your soil PH lately”

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