ground beef sold in supermarkets today contains it. In fact, it’s a fair bet that few cowboys know what it is or that it’s been around for 20 years. The irony to this slimy mess is that a cowboy — or at least one of Big Beef’s Big Bosses — Jo Ann Smith, a past president of the National Cattlemen’s Association, the forerunner of today’s National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and a former USDA food safety czar under the first President Bush, gave the process the government go-ahead to become what it is today: another reason for consumers to walk past the meat counter. According to a Dec. 10, 1991, Kansas City Star story, Smith, while head of USDA meat inspection, had to choose between labeling this new technology “something like ‘beef trimmings’” — the meatpackers’ preferred phrase — or “what the underlings at See GUEBERT, pg. 5

Commentary: Input crucial to water quality program

THE LAND, MARCH 23, 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 water-quality 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. We want to talk with the people who will use the program and make sure it works for them before anything is finalized. We also need to include technical experts who understand the science behind water and agricultural

systems to help us develop a program that has real value. If farmers are going to make the effort to participate in a new program, we need to make sure that what they are volunteering to do will actually make a difference in the quality of our water resources. To bring in that outside expertise, we will be establishing an advisory committee made up of farmers, scientists and other experts who will meet over the coming months to discuss program options and make recommendations to me. The MDA staff and I will use the committee’s input as we develop the program and its features. The committee will have members drawn from agriculture, conservation, research and other groups. Candidates will be nominated by the public through an established process with the Secretary of State’s office. I will select committee members from among those nominated. For more information about the nominations process and the program in general, log on to our website at www.mda.state.mn.us. The Jan. 17 signing ceremony with Gov. Dayton and federal officials was just the first step — an agreement to develop a program. Establishing this advisory committee is the next crucial step toward refining the program details. As more information becomes available, we will be sure to share it. We are committed to making this a good program not only for farmers but for the entire state. It’s going to take a lot of hard work, but in the end the Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certification Program will be a major advance for water quality and agriculture. This commentary was submitted by Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. ❖

THE LAND, MARCH 23, 2012

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and I feel like a school kid again. Remember those days in grade school when someone special would slip a miniature card under your desk, possibly attached to a small bag of those red-hot heart candies? It was a mixture of excitement and John Mages embarrassment, but it certainly made my day, week, even school year. I’ve been a corn and soybean farmer near Belgrade, Minn., for nearly three decades. I love what I do, and I’m proud to carry on a family tradition that spans several generations. I didn’t get into farming for the bright lights, glory or a coveted speaking spot at Take Your Father to School Day. But I have to admit that after reading the results of a statewide survey that found more than 80 percent of respondents have a positive view of agriculture, there’s an added spring in my step. In the interest of full disclosure, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, of which I serve as president, commissioned the survey. A respected research

‘Nice that Minnesotans appreciate what we do’ MAGES, from pg. 7 culture in their state. Now, obviously, if the survey found that our approval ratings were as low as those of Congress, I’d be in a world of hurt right now, and my words would not be appearing in this fine publication. It’s time to enjoy my 15 minutes of fame. The statewide survey found that an overwhelming majority viewed Minnesota farmers positively on the issues of the economy and conservation. Almost nine in 10 respondents agreed that farming was very important to Minnesota’s economy. A similar ratio agreed with the statement that Minnesota farmers have a positive impact on the state and pro-

vide residents with many benefits. On the issue of conservation, 73 percent of the respondents agreed that farmers are the best stewards of the land, and that new technologies and innovations have allowed them to grow more and more on less land. Farmers have benefited from innovative technology that has revolutionized the production of one of the basic necessities of life. While some may have a romanticized view of the small farm in a rural area where the family grows just enough to feed themselves, 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.

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 generated from the Minnesota Horse Expo to replace the old judging arena and help build the new AgStar Arena. The new arena will be ready by expo

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 See HEALTH, pg. 13


LITCHFIELD BUILDING CENTER • • LOOKING for Machinery, Grain Storage or Cattle Buildings? •

• 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 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. ❖

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 facegrooming towels should be used on one animal only and not shared between animals.

ATVs and ROVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety always wear an approved helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never engage in stunt driving; riding and alcohol/drugs don’t mix and could cause serious injury or even death. Avoid excessive speeds and be particularly careful on difficult terrain. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders read and understand their operator’s manual before operation. Along with concerned conservationists everywhere, Arctic Cat urges you to “Tread Lightly” on public and private lands. Ride only on designated areas or trails. Preserve your future riding opportunities by showing respect for the environment, local laws, and the rights of others when riding. Do not shoot from or lean firearms or bows against the ATV or ROV. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV. Only ride an ATV that is right for your age. Supervise riders younger than 16. ATVs are only recommended for users over 12 years old. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders take a training course. For safety or training information in the U.S., call the ATV Safety Institute at (800) 887-2827. In Canada, call the Canada Safety Council at (613) 739-1535 or see your dealer.

South Dakota groups oppose dairy provision global markets is terrific for our industry,” the dairy leaders added. “Just a decade ago, our nation was a net importer of dairy products. Now, we export the equivalent of 15 percent of the milk produced by our nation’s dairy farmers.” They called on Thune to oppose “this approach for the dairy industry and our nation.” ■ Meanwhile; The National Milk Producers Federation’s Board of Directors supported a resolution urging Congress

to pass a farm bill in 2012 that contains “an improved safety net for farmers in the form of the Dairy Security Act.” A press release said the Board does not support any extension of current farm programs and “delay the creation of a better dairy program.” Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

dar cheese exports to our neighbor, Mexico.” Cheddar exports to Mexico totaled 2.3 million pounds, up over 560 percent from a year ago. Mexico accounted for over 21 percent of U.S. Cheddar exports during January, according to the DDR. Speaking of exports; Cooperatives Working Together accepted 15 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Darigold, Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative and United Dairymen of Arizona to sell a total of 1.7 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and 827,000 pounds of butter to customers in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The product will be delivered through August 2012 and pushed CWT’s 2012 cheese exports to 30.4 million pounds and butter to 28.8 million to 18 countries. On a butterfat basis, the milk equivalent of these exports is 876 million pounds or the annual production of approximately 42,570 cows, according to CWT analysis. ■ In dairy politics; a group of South Dakota dairy manufacturers are opposing the supply management provision included in legislation expected to be included in the draft farm bill, according to a press release from the International Dairy Foods Association. The group included the presidents and CEOs of four large dairy companies; Saputo Cheese USA, Inc., Lake Norden Food Ingredient Company (Davisco Foods International, Inc.), Valley Queen Cheese Factory, Inc., and Bel Brands USA, and expressed concern to Senator John Thune, R-S.D., pointing to the growing dairy industry in South Dakota, and called it “alarming that Congress would consider legislation that would limit milk production, increase regulation and allow government interference in free markets,” according to the release. Thune sits on the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which will consider the legislation as part of the proposed “Dairy Security Act,” expected to be included in the farm bill. “The dairy industry in South Dakota has been growing tremendously in recent years,” the dairy leaders wrote. “Our investments in dairy manufacturing plants in the state bring new jobs as well as increased demand for milk from dairy farmers. In fact, we have been working with Governor Daugaard in his efforts to bring new milk production to our state in order to keep up with the growth in our operations.” “It’s also important to note that the opportunity for dairy expansion into

MIELKE, from pg. 14 and dairy product prices this year. ■ Prices for replacement heifers which will enter the herd during 2012 and into mid-2013 were also above expectations, suggesting that there is demand for dairy replacements and further expansion. February’s forecast cow numbers were increased to 9.2 million head for the year and production per cow was raised to 21.7 million pounds. Most of the gain in cow numbers is expected to come in the first half of 2012. The relatively mild winter in most of the United States is ideal for production, boosting yield per cow in the first half of 2012. However, weaker producer returns are expected to lead to herd contraction and lower milk per cow in the second half of the year, said USDA. Milk production remains heavy in the Southwest, according to USDA’s weekly update. California and New Mexico processing plants are working on extended schedules to handle the milk as conditions are favorable for milk cows. Pacific Northwest milk output is well above a year ago. Milk and condensed product is being moved around the region to accommodate ongoing repairs at a drying facility in Lynden, Wash. There are more concerns about high feed prices and future milk price projections, according to USDA. Milk production is increasing in Central region. Surplus milk supplies are being discounted at up to $4/cwt. under Class prices. Bottled milk needs are variable with some snow-related storms closing schools. Northeast milk output is increasing. Florida and other Southeastern states are also seeing milk output rise. Auxiliary plant capacity continues to be utilized to balance the milk supplies. Pastures are benefiting from rains, according to USDA. ■ USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service reports that January exports of cheese and dry whey were up from a year ago. Exports of nonfat dry milk and skim milk powder fell just behind prior year levels, while exports of butter/milkfat and whey protein concentrate were notably lower than a year ago, according to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Daily Dairy Report. Cheddar cheese exports increased 27 percent, or 2.4 million pounds, to 10.8 million in January versus a year ago. The DDR said “This stellar gain is due, in part, to the continual growth in Ched-

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.

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 prosperity, 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

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 perhaps is 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. ❖

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 farther advanced when the late-July and August hotter, drier weather will likely happen. In fact under this scenario he suggested there could be even more corn acres at the expense of soybeans. Ethanol margins are getting dicey, Schultz said, and could get tougher

THE LAND, MARCH 23, 2012

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

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 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 depending upon specials being offered.” Occasionally a customer asks for grass-fed beef but Foster said that’s seldom. He believes in natural feedstuffs but he credits the success of 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-degree-Fahrenheit 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 See JAX, pg. 21

Cattleman credits Vitamin E, DDGs 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 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.”

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

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.

Ethanol production Markets showing drops sharply different personality

Grain Angles Is buying land the answer?

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 — Corn futures trading in China eclipsed the equivalent of $10 bushel this week.The manager of state reserves in China said purchases so far were only 1.2 mmt compared to 11.0 mmt at the same point last year. These indications of a strong demand base in China have fueled the recent rally in oldTIM EMSLIE crop corn, and March 13 brought Country Hedging the confirmation of a sale of 9.5 milSt. Paul lion bushels of old-crop corn to an unknown destination, which is widely assumed to be China. Cash markets and spreads have been firm, leading the nearby futures to the highest level since September this week. Weekly export sales were 32.9 million bushels, up from 17.5 the previous week. Weekly ethanol production declined sharply to 892 thousand barrels/day, the lowest since last October. Weekly production is still running ahead of the level implied by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s March estimate of corn use for ethanol. Ethanol lost a bit of its discount to Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending gasoline this week, but remains over $1.00/gallon cheaper. The March contract expired at an inverse to the May contract, an indicator of the cash market strength over during 2012. The March/May inverse during March reached a level not seen since 1996. That said, cash corn at the Gulf did show some weak-

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 Broker rise as packers have pushed to Great Plains Commodity increase these prices to cover their Afton, Minn. costs of 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

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 TOM NEHER acres, he would have an option to rent an additional 320 acres that AgStar VP & Team Leader — Grain Industry was adjacent to the property. He Rochester, Minn. asked me again, “what 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.

Soybean spread firm, but not inverted like corn

‘Quite possible’ that hog prices will improve TEALE, from pg. 26 last August. 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. 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. ❖

crop soy/corn ratio was little changed on the week at 2.31. Bean prices have strengthened the bid for acreage this spring, but indications are that corn will show much bigger planting gains. A private analyst’s farmer survey was released on Friday showing soybean acreage at 74.5 million acres. The February USDA estimate was 75 million acres. Balance sheets for next year show stocks dropping to intolerably tight levels at that acreage level. The National Oilseed Processors Association crush was reported this week for the month of February at 136.4 million bushels, about 3-4 million bushels above expectations. We estimate annual crush at 1,630 mb, compared to the March USDA estimate of 1,615 mb. OUTLOOK: Net fund length in soybeans is now the highest since February 2011. The rally that began last December continues to look strong on the chart with another higher high and higher low this week. $14 is the next objective, with last August’s high of $14.56 the next major top on the chart. The March 30 Grain Stocks report tends to be less eventful for soybeans because the main usage categories are more easily tracked than the feed usage category in wheat and corn. The November contract is also strong on the chart. The chart shows a series of eight straight weeks with both higher highs and higher lows. The next objectives are $13.42, and the September high of $14.00. Critical support in the current chart set-up is the previous week’s low, which is currently $12.97. ❖

March 30 from the USDA Grain Stocks report. As mentioned above, the nearby contract moved to levels not seen since last September this week. The next major resistance is seen near the $7 mark. The December contract remained more range bound this week. Resistance remains at $5.82 and then the 2012 high of $5.97, with support at the $5.50 mark. I would expect to see this range hold until the March 30 Prospective Plantings report. SOYBEANS — Nearby soybeans continued to climb higher, rising 42.25 cents for the week. The May contract rose 36.25 cents, and the November contract rose 23 cents. The nearby chart reflects the expiration of the March contract this week, which went off the board with a small carry to the May contract. The bean spreads have been firm, but not inverted like the corn spreads have been. The long futures rally in soybeans — the nearby contract rose for the fifth straight week this week — has kept cash bean markets relatively better supplied than the corn markets. The South American production losses remain behind the rally. Oil World lowered its estimate for Brazilian production to 66.5 mmt, 2 mmt lower than the March USDA estimate of 68.5 mmt. Some analysts have even been raising the possibility of a Brazilian crop of just 65 mmt. The effect of production losses in South America was highlighted by the sizable new-crop sales on the weekly export sales report. Old-crop sales were solid at 22.4 million bushels, but the new-crop sales of 28.8 million bushels were more impressive. The new-

EMSLIE, from pg. 26 ness as the week went on. The futures rally was able to generate some farmer selling. Higher barge freight values were also an indicator of better farmer selling. The May/July spread closed the week 1.75 cents firmer, building on last week’s move from a carry to an inverted market. A private analyst released a producer survey this week predicting 95 million acres of corn plantings this spring. This would be a little higher than the February USDA Outlook Conference estimate of 94 million acres. We have heard of some corn planting in Illinois, and the record warmth in much of the western Corn Belt has most anticipating an early start. OUTLOOK: The corn market is essentially separating itself into two different commodities. Old-crop corn appears to be extremely tight as indicated by nearly unprecedented strength in the spreads for this time of year. Export and ethanol usage remain on paces above what the USDA is currently projecting for the full market year. On the other hand, prospects for new-crop supplies appear bright. Every indication from the farmer is that corn is the preferred crop to plant this spring. A warm spring is needed for both time to get a record number of acres planted, and the early start to the growing season associated with high yields. As of now, it looks like we’ll get that favorable spring weather. On this outlook, spreads can continue to widen their inverses. The big unknown is the level of feed use, which we’ll get a look at on

Off-farm investments recommended NEHER, from pg. 26 Thirdly, invest in grain bins and dryers. Understanding that handling grain is another enterprise, he needs to capture every edge in the marketplace during volatile times. A 10-cent difference in a basis bid may be the difference in profitability, in a tight margin environment.

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

Then look at updating any machinery that needs to be replaced. During tight margin conditions, it may be difficult to afford replacements.

account and that this would not be needed. 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. ❖

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.

The Grotto of the Redemption, West Bend, Iowa built on land where rocks are hard to come by. Yet, these men have created a masterpiece, the largest grotto in the Redemption.

world,” according to Darcie Kramer, the executive director at the Grotto of the Redemption. “In the Christmas Chapel in the church, there are rocks and minerals from every state in the union, every country of the world, and every major river in the world.” The Miracle in Stone features nine separate grottos that depict a story in the life of Jesus Christ, including his birth in a manger, his death on the cross and resurrection. The scenes are simply displayed surrounded by an exquisite, picturesque masterpiece of rocks, stones, petrified wood and other natural raw materials that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief at the beauty of it all. Towers, pathways, mosaic, arches, tunnels, cave-like dens — all fashioned from man’s hands, covered with precious jewels, rose-like stones, sea shells, quartz, stones in the brightest

purple, a teal blue, pink and green. They took time to make designs, to have patterns through out the grotto. The Grotto of Redemption is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 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. ❖
