OPINION


‘Free markets’ aren’t free, but they are full of mayhem

For example, to ensure that your bank has your money when you need it, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. collected part of its $19.2 billion in bank insurance premiums last year from, yep, your bank.

The result of the House bill is to effectively put the interests of Wall Street ahead of those of the American public ... — Gary Gensler FARM & FOOD FILE the-radar trading occurs yearly with “absolutely no government oversight” whatsoever. By Alan Guebert In fact, Chilton told the Euro crowd, the CFTC “currently oversee(s) roughly $5 trillion in annualized trading volume,” or less than 0.8 percent of the global market.

OPINION

Let’s not forget the hundreds of billions of dollars the nation — that’s you and me — ponied up to keep the global financial market from imploding in the Great Bankster Caper of 2008. Free market? Not at 700 billion bucks. Come to think of it, about the only thing free in that market is every one of those chiseling chuckleheads, not one of which ever went to jail.

Farmers and ranchers might view the CFTC’s growing role as important and necessary. After all, many, as former clients of MF Global, continue to wait for their commodity hedging accounts to be made whole after the firm’s Oct. 31 crack-up due, reportedly, to foolish bets on shaky Greek bonds. Also, JP Morgan’s current dance with debt began with similar, unreported financial bets in London.

With implementation of Dodd-Frank looming, Gensler likened the cuts to the “NFL expanding eightfold without adding any more referees … Imagine the mayhem …”

Mayhem, indeed, but this is politics today: the House hopes to kill Dodd-Frank by starving the CFTC of the money the agency needs to implement it. On June 12, however, a Senate appropriations subcommittee voted to boost the CFTC’s 2013 budget to $308 million, more in line with the White House request and what the CFTC claims is needed. That means a showdown between House and Senate appropriators looms. The House claims the fight pits “free” markets against bigger government; the Senate believes the best markets are safe, transparent markets.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

And you? Do you think $100 million more for the CFTC to implement Dodd-Frank is a good investment to guard against another $1 trillion financial meltdown or another MF Global mess? The answer is a no-brainer.

Only the deeply divisive House of Representatives thinks the CFTC should be pared, not strengthened, Fact is most markets are not free. They are, however, fair because tough, transparent — and, not free for the task.

If there’s no such thing as a free lunch — and there isn’t: even the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “free” National School Lunch Program cost $10.8 billion in fiscal year 2010 — then it stands to reason that the free market might not be entirely free either.

OPINION

Letter: Farmers kept economy afloat

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

To the Editor: Recently you published a commentary by Dennis Avery about ethanol policy (June 22 issue). My husband and I have farmed for 39 years. In the last three years we have had very good farm prices, but in the first 36 years we barely survived the struggle to make ends meet. For the first 15 years of marriage, we went without health insurance, with three children to raise, yet we worked our fingers to the bone to make our payments, without any welfare payments. We have to buy food in the store, too, and buy gas, and his ideology about ethanol costing more than gasoline is incorrect. It is much cheaper at the pump, and we as farmers don’t get the blenders fee; that goes to the oil companies. Are we supposed to take 1930 farm prices, at 2012 costs? Can any other company survive that? Yes, everyone needs to eat, but the farmer is a small percentage of the people in the United States, and we, the farmers of America, have kept this country afloat the last few years. Frankly, I get tired of hearing such negative attitudes toward the people who work so hard to put food on the table for so many. How many $1,200-a-plate meals has Dennis Avery had in Washington with members of Congress? Talk about waste. They’d better check their own pantry. Holly Traynor Minnesota Lake, Minn.

To the Editor: In reply to letter about marriage and the Democrats (“Letter: Dems sabotaging marriage”) in the June 22 issue: Marriage worldwide is a means to an end, it always was, if one reads history books. Families married each other to cement control (the Royals) and money (the rich). And please do not compare marriage in other countries to America; in other countries, old men buy 8-year-old girls and “marry” them. Jerry Sandusky is a pedophile, not a homosexual. He is a sick, twisted human criminal. Goodness, he’s married, isn’t he? Gays did not tank the economy, women going to work for wages did not tank the U.S. economy; Bush’s wars and the greed of the “1 percent” did that. Gays did not tank Minnesota’s economy; Pawlenty did that. It’s already against the law in Minnesota for gays to marry. The squalling about a Constitutional amendment is smoke and mirrors to deter folks from the real issues, like well-paying jobs, intelligent management of our workplaces, and a level playing field for the 99 percent. Rosemary Schaffer Windom, Minn.

The heavy rain and floods that recently swept through parts of Minnesota created some real problems for cities like Duluth and Moose Lake. They also created problems for local farmers and others growing food, whether it’s a backyard garden, a small vegetable farm or a community-supported agriculture operation. While there are a variety of crop insurance options for farmers, not everyone who grows food in Minnesota has access to the kind of coverage they need to deal with a summer storm that ruins their crops. Fortunately, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has a program designed to help farmers dealing with these kinds of natural — and personal — disasters. The Minnesota Farmer Assistance Network provides financial guidance, technical assistance and mentoring to farm families facing economic hardship. By calling the MFAN helpline, (877) 898-MFAN, farmers can be connected to appropriate resources such as farm business management instructors, Extension educators and other expert financial analysts. MFAN also helps farmers find legal guidance, tax advice and 24-hour crisis counseling. The service is available at no-cost to farmers statewide, and MFAN is careful to keep callers’ information confidential. MFAN is administered by the MDA’s Rural Finance Authority, but it involves a long list of organizations working together to provide resources on behalf of farmers in need. These part-

Equal treatment, not special treatment LAND MINDS, from pg. 2 to all of this ickiness is easy: Let’s all stop worrying about what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedroom, OK? It’s none of our business, plain and simple. ■ There are probably LGBT farmers growing crops and raising livestock in your county. There are LGBT folks at your coffee shops and grocery stores and churches. There are LGBT youth in your local FFA, 4-H, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops; maybe even your own son or daughter or grandkid. There are LGBT subscribers to The Land who are reading this column right now. Out or closeted, these individuals are real and part of your community. They are human beings just like you and deserving of the same rights as you. They and their families are living their lives, struggling to make ends meet just like you. Many of them are in longterm relationships and want the same opportunities and benefits of marriage that many of you enjoy every day — not special treatment; equal treatment. They are your friends and neighbors, and probably the only way they could be a threat to your family is if they spread manure on their fields upwind from your house the same day you’re hosting a birthday party for that kid of yours. I have a hard time understanding why anyone would go out of their way to marginalize their fellow man by permanently inscribing inequality into the state’s constitution. We’re talking about marriage here — isn’t marriage about love and commitment? Isn’t that what we’re trying to encourage in our society? Please vote no on the marriage amendment in November, and let’s continue the discussion. ••• Tom Royer is assistant editor of The Land. He may be reached at troyer@TheLandOnline.com. ❖

Grilling great chicken — and no, we’re not talking breasts This week’s installment is another dish which can be prepared on both charcoal and gas. (You are welcome gas grillers. I am losing some serious BBQ street cred by talking gas.) It is delicious, classy, easy ... oh yeah ... and affordable. On the competitive BBQ circuit, there are four categories. Pulled pork, brisket, ribs and chicken. In the early days of the circuit the cut of choice for chicken was the breast, which most people consider the premium piece of the versatile yard bird. But, competitive BBQ combatants became frustrated with the breast. The window of grilling perfection was slim. Either it ended up undercooked and dangerous, or dry and leathery. They have since moved onto the thigh, which in my humble opinion is the best yard bird cut. It is dark meat, very moist and has great depth of flavor. Just as important, it is typically more affordably priced than the overrated chicken breast. This stuffed chicken thigh is complemented with a delicious tomato vinaigrette. The timing of this recipe is perfect, as locally grown summer tomatoes are starting to show up at the local farm markets. This recipe works well for seven or eight chicken thighs. Tomato Vinaigrette 1 1/2 lbs. tomatoes — cut into bit-sized pieces

1/3 cup olive oil Handful of fresh chives Juice and finely grated rind of 1 lime Salt and pepper to taste In your food processor, process the oil and chives until smooth and bright green. Pour into a nonmetal bowl and add the tomatoes, lime, salt and pepper to taste. Lightly stir and place in the fridge. Pesto ricotta stuffing 1/2 cup ricotta cheese 2 to 3 Tbs. pesto (make your own pesto or buy it in the store) Spread the thighs out on a cutting board so they are flat. Since they are deboned, they should lay out like a canvas. If you want the chicken thinner and more consistent, place wax paper over them and beat them thinner with a rolling pin. Sounds barbaric, but it works. Place a tablespoon or so of the ricotta stuffing in

the middle of the thigh. Roll up the thigh and use toothpicks to secure the middle and the two ends. Do not try to use the cheap toothpicks, as they will snap like balsa wood. To see how to properly use the toothpicks to fasten everything up, go to YouTube.com/BBQMyWay and search for “thighs.” Lightly coat the thighs with olive oil, salt and coarsely cracked pepper. Grill on indirect heat for 15 minutes. Finish over direct heat to add texture and color. The internal temperature of the thighs should be 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Serve the thighs over a bed of fresh spinach and smother with the tomato vinaigrette. Oh, and don’t forget to remove the toothpicks. I like a crisp white wine with this dish, or a pilsner beer. Iced tea and colas work well, too. Thanks for stopping by. BBQMyWay is written by Dave Lobeck, a barbecue chef from Sellersburg, Ind. Log on to his website at www.BBQMyWay.com.

6th Annual

• Mulch the planting with straw to keep the berries off the ground. Berries resting on damp or wet soil are more susceptible to gray mold. • During dry weather, irrigate in the morning when using a sprinkler. Plants dry quickly when irrigated in the morning. • “Clean-pick” the strawberry planting. Harvest the strawberry planting frequently. Pick berries as soon as they ripen. Handle berries carefully during harvest to avoid bruising the fruit. Immediately refrigerate the unwashed berries. • Berries that exhibit symptoms of gray mold should be picked and removed from the bed. • Finally, fungicides are used by commercial strawberry growers to control gray mold. However, cultural practices are the best way to control Botrytis fruit rot in home gardens. Why do my strawberries have a slightly bitter taste? The flavor of most fruits and vegetables is influenced by weather conditions. In regard to strawberries, warm sunny weather produces the most flavorful fruit. When the weather is extremely hot, the berries may have a slightly bitter taste. Strawberry plants produce smaller quantities of sugars when the weather is cool and cloudy. As a result, berries are not as sweet when the weather is cool and rainy in May and June. Leather rot, caused by a fungal disease, can be a problem in wet weather. Infected fruit have a leathery texture and bitter taste. There are small, black, yellow-spotted beetles feeding on my strawberries. What should I do?

The small, black beetles are likely sap beetles. They also are known as picnic beetles or picnic bugs. Sap beetles commonly feed on overripe or damaged fruits and vegetables in the garden. Sanitation is the best management strategy for sap beetles in home gardens. Keep the strawberry patch as clean as possible through timely picking and removal of damaged, diseased and overripe fruit. Insecticide sprays are available for sap beetles but they are difficult to use because they are applied to a crop that is ready for harvest or while harvest is under way. If you do spray, use an insecticide with a short harvest-waiting interval and follow label directions carefully. There are small masses of foam-like material on my strawberry plants. What are these foam-like masses? The foam-like masses on the strawberry plants were probably created by the meadow spittlebug. The meadow spittlebug is one of several species of this commonly recognized group of sap-feeding insects. Spittlebugs are familiar because of the frothy, wet mass of “spittle” that surrounds the nymphs as they feed on sap from their host plants. The spittle is produced by the immature stage of the insect (the nymph) and protects the nymphs from natural enemies and desiccation.While the foam-like masses of spittlebugs are conspicuous and somewhat obnoxious, spittlebugs cause little harm to plants. Control efforts usually are not warranted. To have additional gardening questions answered, contact Dennis Carlson, Franklin County Extension horticulture program assistant, at (641) 456-4811 or dennisc@iastate.edu or by calling or e-mailing the ISU Extension and Outreach horticulture hotline at (515) 294-3108 or hortline@iastate.edu.

Strawberries are the fruit of choice for home gardeners with limited space for fruit production. Strawberries and raspberries give greater returns for the labor involved than any other fruit, and can be grown throughout Iowa with proper winter protection. Horticulture specialists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach have answers to questions about strawberry pests and diseases. How do I control weeds in my strawberry patch? Weed control is essential to ensure optimal plant growth and fruit production. Weeds compete with the strawberry plants for water, nutrients and sunlight. Weeds also reduce air circulation, which results in fruit and foliage staying wet for longer periods. Disease problems are more serious when plant tissue remains wet for long periods of time. Cultivation, hand pulling and mulching are the most practical weed control measures for home gardeners. Cultivate often, but shallow, to control weeds. Destroy the weeds before they have a chance to flower and produce seeds. Clean, weed-free straw and other organic materials can be applied as a mulch between plant rows. Herbicides are not a viable option as few, if any, herbicides can be used on home strawberry plantings. Some of my strawberries in the garden are covered with a gray, velvety growth. What is it and how can it be controlled? The gray, velvety growth on your berries may be gray mold. It is also known as Botrytis fruit rot. Gray mold is favored by poor air circulation and high humidity levels in the strawberry planting. The most commonly infected berries are those touching the soil or other infected berries. Cultural practices can reduce losses due to gray mold. • Do not fertilize June-bearing strawberries in spring. The application of a nitrogen-containing fertilizer in spring promotes lush, vegetative growth. Dense foliage slows the drying of the strawberry planting, resulting in a more favorable environment for gray mold. • Control weeds in the strawberry bed. Weeds reduce air circulation and slow the drying of the strawberry plants.

It’s showtime! Keep a close eye on your show livestock Floron Faries, professor and Extension veterinarian, Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M System, has some advice for FFA and 4-H youth to help ensure their livestock show season is a big hit. “Plans begin about a year before the livestock show. In fact, the health program begins before you even get the animal,” Faries said. Faries recommends purchasing healthy animals from places that have good management practices. “As you travel and look for show livestock, ask the seller to immunize prior to purchase, allowing enough time for the immunity to become established,” Faries said. “If vaccinations cannot be administered at the seller’s place, begin vaccinations on day of arrival. Do not wait.”

A

The day the show animal arrives home, perform a visual exam and repeat the exam several times throughout the season. “Watch the animal every day and observe its behavior and attitude,” Faries said. “Watch for healthy and unhealthy signs.” Faries said the most common medical problems seen in show livestock are respiratory diseases or lung diseases. They can be viral, bacterial, or both. Respiratory diseases are common, because during the show season animals are mingling with other animals at fairs or other central locations for weighing. Therefore, every time your animal leaves home there is a risk of exposure and often an animal may return with a cough or fever.

I find a common mistake is that the owner does not realize the (vaccination) shots need to be repeated becuase he or she didn’t look at the label. — Floron Faries Follow a preventive program of administering vaccinations to avoid respiratory diseases. “Become educated as to what viruses and bacteria may cause respiratory problems and talk with your veterinarian,” Faries said. The types of vaccines administered for each species vary, so become familiar with what is needed for your animal. Be sure to read the label and know what vaccines must be repeated. “I find a common mistake is that the owner does not realize the shots need to be repeated because he or she didn’t look at the label,” Faries said. Unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian, always follow labeling instructions to help ensure that the vaccination is most effective. The non-

infectious vaccines, which are unable to multiply in the body, usually require two injections, Faries said. The second injection is given three to six weeks after the first. “The key to a healthy animal is starting early with disease prevention and not waiting until you arrive at the show to begin treatment,” Faries said. “Practicing good health management such as close observations and proper vaccinations will help your chances in any competition.” Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

He mentioned that most ethanol plants are now also spinning the corn oil fraction out of the grain, resulting in a lower-energy feed stock for swine. Adding special antioxidants and fortified levels of vitamins helps the auto-immune system combat the insidious challenges of the pork reproductive and respiratory syndrome. He said certain botanicals can help the immune system of hogs ward off certain virus infections. As hog systems continue to consolidate with more animals in a given environment, Asche said this presents increasing challenges to swine nutrition. “Pen densities (stocking densities) being what they are today we need to make certain we have enough energy density in our rations so that we don’t have a negative effect on growth and feed conversion. As we push these pigs up to 280 pound market weights if we don’t have enough calories in the diet you’ll see slowdowns in growth and feed conversion.” FormAFeed is now also marketing a hydration additive for sows called Hydro Wean, which adds electrolyte properties to the lactation ration. Asche said the product improves sow productivity, keeps sows more content and in the process reduces baby pig mortality. Often there’s an improvement in weaning weights. Hydro Wean replaces 25 pounds of corn in the lactation ration when added at the rate of 25 pounds per ton. “Getting more water into the sow is

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Participating in every World Pork Expo from the start, FormAFeed of Stewart, Minn., also finds Expo the perennial “door opener” to pig producers across America. Interviewed at Pork Expo, Gary Asche Gary Asche, FormAFeed’s director of nutrition, said, “we’re nationwide with marketing so Pork Expo continually reacquaints us with existing customers and also introduces us to new producers. The water soluble electrolytes through Tech Mix have opened up marketing opportunities everywhere.” FormAFeed premixes get marketed from Pennsylvania to Utah and south to Tennessee. Their various hydration products have even opened up international markets both in Europe and Asia, especially China. Because of market hog prices sliding down and feed costs, especially corn, bumping up in recent weeks, Asche calls the hog industry a break-even business currently unless you booked much of your inputs earlier. Enzyme products are good sellers for FormAFeed. He told of a blend product with special enzymes and antioxidants which help improve feed conversion and growth when the hog ration is heavy in distiller’s grains and other byproduct mixtures. These special enzyme products for beef are adding to the shelf life of retail beef cuts, Asche said.

Solar getting big play at U of M facilities in Morris By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer With a significant research focus on wind turbines starting six years ago, solar research is now ramped up big time at the University of MinnesotaMorris, and its adjacent West Central Research and Outreach Center. A program of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, the Initiative for Renewable Energy and the Environment, is investing $4.1 million in a variety of projects to find new ways to produce clean, renewable energy. Xcel Energy and additional funding partners including the Minnesota Corn Growers Association are supporting these research efforts. Moving innovative ideas to market is the economic keystone of bringing sustainable energy to life. Below is a snapshot briefing on solar projects currently under way at WCROC with information provided by Eric Buchanan, renewable energy scientist, and Mike Reese, coordinator, at WCROC. • There are two solar thermal systems located at WCROC. Solar thermal is different from solar photovoltaic (solar pv) in that no electricity is produced. Solar thermal uses the power of the sun to heat fluid which then can be used for many different

applications. The heat is used for domestic hot water supply, space heating and space cooling (air conditioning). • The first type of technology is called a flat plate collector. The WCROC flat plate collector systems consist of two panels of approximately 64 square feet of flat plate collector area provided by Solar Skies, model SS-32. This system heats a transfer fluid which is a 50-50 mix of water and propylene glycol. A heat transfer tank (Trendsetter TS-100 thermal tank, 105-gallon capacity) is used to transfer the heat contained in the water-glycol mix to the hot water lines within the building. There is also a back-up water heater which is a 40gallon Marathon electric unit, model MR40245B. Expected peak power output is about 6,900 British thermal unit per hour (2.0 kW) in August and 3,400 Btu/hour (1.0 kW) in December. Total energy collected is expected to be about 9 million Btu annually. • The second system being researched and demonstrated is an evacuated tube system. The evacuated

tube system provides space heating and cooling for about 6,400 square feet. The peak load is 15 tons heat and 10 tons cooling. There are 1,200 glass tubes or about 2,100 square feet of evacuated tube collector area provided by a company called Solar Panels Plus. The peak system power output is expected to be about 47 kW in July and 28 kW in December. Heat transfer fluid is a 50-50 mix of water and corn glycol — 275 gallons in a loop, 300 gallons of additional storage. The cooling system uses an absorption chiller to capture the heat energy and convert it into chilled water. A Yazaki WFC-SC10 absorption chiller is used; the refrigerant is water, and the absorbent is lithium bromide. A geothermal system provides back-up heat and cooling. • Any solar thermal system designed to supply space heating and cooling loads will produce excess heat at times, especially during spring and fall when there is little need for heating or cooling. A place to dissipate the excess heat is needed to prevent overheating of the transfer fluid. Future research at the WCROC will focus on finding a way to store this heat or possibly generate electricity with it. • The Solar Skies system (manufactured in Alexandria, Minn.,) has two panels of approximately 64 square feet. Used for domestic hot water, this system uses special glass and coatings to capture and transfer heat from the sun to copper tubing. The heat is transferred to liquid within the copper tubing into the building and the Trendsetter tank described above. • The Solar Panels Plus (evacuated tube system) consist of 1,200 glass tubes, 30 tubes per manifold, 10 manifolds per

row and four rows. Heat is captured by the glass tubes and transferred through three layers of coatings to a copper element. The copper element has a proprietary fluid within it and is under a vacuum. The liquid boils at a low temperature, the heat is then transferred to a heating element in the manifold, and then to a separate water/glycol mix which then is pumped into the building through the Yazaki absorption chiller or heating coils (depending on if the building requires heating or cooling). • The ability to air condition with solar thermal energy is desirable in order to utilize the most solar energy but also spread the capital costs of the system over a larger period of the year. • At the Regional Fitness Center on the U of M-Morris campus, a 32 flatplate panel Solar Skies system, and a natural gas backup, provide heating for the recreational swimming pool. This system was able to integrate with the pool’s existing water pumps to directly transfer heat between the pool water and the solar heat medium. More information is available at http://renewables.morris.umn.edu/ solar/technology. • The solar industry will continue to grow over the next five years. Technology advancements have exponentially increased the efficiency and decreased the costs of solar energy. Today, the overall demand for energy is flat due to the slow economy and natural gas is cheap. When the economy begins to speed up and energy costs follow, then solar energy will grow rapidly. • Eventually commercial business will be big players. Policy will still be needed in the short term to bridge the transition. Solar energy is financially viable today for certain applications. As the technology improves, there will be more and more applications that are financially feasible with or without state and federal policy/incentives. • Will solar gradually become more popular than “small wind” on Minnesota farms? Yes. Small wind provides electrical energy for farms. Electrical energy has historically been moderately priced in Minnesota. Thermal energy costs for farms can be highly volatile so solar thermal may be a long-term, price stable solution. Even today, farm applications that require large amounts of thermal energy may benefit from installing a solar system. For example, dairy facilities that use considerable amount of hot water could already benefit. ❖


Drainage systems catered to soil specifics for quality water

Interviewed at a recent TMDL session in Redwood Falls, Minn., Jacobs said, “they look at the land mass. They ask what segment represents the largest land mass. They ask who are the largest users of the watersheds into a drainage basin. The answer to each of these probing questions is the rural agricultural areas. So that’s where they first look even though agriculture often isn’t the biggest contributor.”

He’s a proponent of pattern tile systems for most farmland. Obviously, it’s good business for his firm which plows in miles and miles of tile each season, but he’s also firmly convinced a wellplanned drainage system results in cleaner water into the total drainage basin and much less erosion of sediment-enriched top soils.

Renville County farmer John O’Neil strongly endorses planned pattern tiling but cautions that you should know the soils of your fields. “On our very heavy soils we might have to pull our tile lines within 30 feet of each other because the soil just

Jacob said many farmers just want to pick out a spacing and run with it. “But I like to remind farmers that all the county soil surveys are completed in Minnesota. So by using a Minnesota drainage guide you can look up your soil type and it will suggest what depth and what spacing you need to drain to a particular coefficient. For example most of our county systems are designed to a three-eighths inch coefficient. And that simply means they’ll take three-eighths of an inch of water off an acre in 24 hours. “We design your system to that particular coefficient. Look at the soil types you have; that determines the permeability of each soil and what depth and what spacing you’ll need.” Jacobs perhaps speaks for both tilers and farmers when he said, though he is not a soil scientist, turbidity is not just a problem of these recent times. He remembers his granddad saying that when settlers first came up the Minnesota River they described the water as being too thick to make good coffee and too thin to plow.

Repair of all Mfg. Pumps “Where Farm and Family Meet”

He said, “we don’t get nearly the immediate flash-flood runoffs from fields that are pattern-tiled because the entire field acts as a sponge. The entire soil mass above a pattern-tiled field soaks up a rain storm. The net result is that water is siphoned off in a slow, controlled manner. Also the soil is a great filter so there are much fewer sediments including phosphorous, nitrates and other potentially hazardous materials getting into drainage ditches and streams and rivers. The net result is much less turbidity.”

“We’ve worked with the French drains which is a version of the coil pattern. I think the coil-type intake will become more popular because GPS guidance does a good job of indicating where the coils are buried and you can raise your tillage equipment as needed,” Jacobs said.

Jacobs isn’t suggesting information discussed relative to implementing TMDLs for Minnesota rivers and tributaries is weighted unfairly against agriculture. He agrees scientific data needs to be established first, and then common sense discussion as to logical practices for the entire ecosystem of a given watershed need to be agreed upon.

Finley: Minnesota River Valley holds promise for all By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Robert Finley sees a great value that is the Minnesota River Valley. “Citizens of this great river system are realizing the potential for much more outdoor recreation and for economic development also. We already have some hiking and biking trails, some great horseback riding areas with overnight camping, a fabulous river for canoeing, great turkey and

pheasant hunting, tremendous bird watching opportunities and it appears our cleaner river is also rebuilding the fishing populations of the river,” said the manager of the MinRobert Finley nesota Pollution Control Agency’s Southeast Region Watershed Division.

“Plus we have an abundance of Minnesota history right here on our doorstep. Much of Minnesota’s heritage traces directly to this great river basin between New Ulm and Granite Falls. We see positive things happening that will be making this area a ‘destination spot’ for more and more travelers, both locally and from the Twin Cities and even adjacent states.” A real economic impact is that two popular casinos, Jackpot Junction at Morton and Prairies Edge at Granite Falls bookend this 40-mile corridor. Plus Jackpot Junction also sports a PGA designed 18-hole golf course. He referred to how Lanesboro has become a destination icon for thousands of Minnesotans and others thanks to the development of a picturesque biking trail, which in turn led to bed and breakfast attractions, which also have spurred significant economic development of the town itself. Finley said, “we have much the same potential here in the Minnesota River Valley especially if industry moves in and expands its work force. Educated skills potentially moving into an area always look for the special amenities of that area. What can I do after work? Can I take my family out bike riding?

Can we take a canoe to a nearby river? Can I go golfing? “In essence these people are asking that besides the work opportunity, is this a good place to raise a family? Will we be excited about the total environment? Will the kids have great schools plus lots of other outdoor recreation? Yes, we’re talking in terms of the total package to make this Minnesota River corridor a great place for everyone.” Acquiring enough public lands is obviously a focal point in ongoing development of the Minnesota River basin and a potential dilemma. Legacy Funds are being used to purchase wildlife management areas but they do not allow for additional uses of the land other than hunting. The point being you do not want the wildlife prevalent in a WMA to be disturbed with biking, hiking and other activities. And you don’t want other people traipsing through a wildlife area when the hunting season is open. Finley said it’s against state law to interfere with hunters in designated wildlife and public hunting grounds when they are hunting. Finley was a keynote speaker at a Redwood Falls TMDL session earlier this year. ❖

Professor: Good vineyards start with soil tests By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Whether you grow 1,000 acres of corn, or one acre of grapes, striving for top production starts with a good soil test. This advice comes from Paul Domoto, Iowa State University horticulture professor. “You need to really know the soils of your vineyard. That includes the characteristics of the soil as well as its nutrient needs,” Domoto said. That means you start with a comprehensive soil test. If you have multiple soil types, you need representative samples of each soil type. And you need samples at both a 6-inch depth and a 12- to 16-inch depth. “The shallow sample tells fertilizer practices; the deeper sample tells the parent material of the soil,” Domoto said. So what is the nutrient appetite of a

healthy vineyard? Perhaps surprising, Domoto said vineyards do not require much nutrition. “Many of our Midwest vineyards have too much nitrogen because of the rich organic content of the soils. But grapes do have a fairly high demand for potassium. “In central Iowa we have a lot of soils high in magnesium which inhibits the uptake of potassium. Up here in Minnesota we often find just the opposite — magnesium deficiencies. These differences are basically because of the parent material of the soil.” Minnesota agronomists often recommend sulfur for maximum corn yields. Same idea for grapes? Not likely, Domoto said. The vineyard requirement for sulfur is low, partly because sulfur is often the chemistry of fungicides used in foliar applications on grapes.

Once you get results of your soil test your local fertilizer dealer may be able to provide a “dry mix” for ground application at the base of your vines. Winterhaven Nursery and Vineyards near Janesville, Minn., typically deep bands after harvest a 3-15-43 fertilizer at a 300 pounds per acre rate. They also foliar spray a 3-18-18 at one gallon per acre after harvest. At veraison (late August) and a few days later a KDL foliar is used. This is a macronutrient derived from potassium carbonate. This foliar potassium product penetrates plant tissue, leaves, buds, fruit skin and bark. Nutrient uptake happens directly through the cell walls. Domoto said foliar feeding is especially important if soils aren’t supplying necessary nutrients because of soil pH or availability of soil nutrients. Though potassium is often a primary ingredient in foliar fertility, he cautions that too

much K on northern grapes raises the K level of the juice which can precipitate out the tartaric acid and reduce wine quality. “But foliar apps of zinc, boron, copper, iron if on high pH soils are often easier than doing soil apps of these minor nutrients,” Domoto said. Can foliar sprays ahead of harvest even-up the “ripening process” of your grapes? Domoto said perhaps, but it’s a fine line. He hesitated to identify the most common deficiency in vineyard fertility simply because it depends so much on the soils of each site. But with higher pH soils, micronutrients are often lacking. Domoto was one of several speakers at this year’s Minnesota Grape Growers Conference. For more information, call (515) 2940035 or e-mail domoto@iastate.edu. ❖

MDA announces Ag Water Quality Certification committee members The Minnesota Department of Agriculture announced the membership of the advisory committee that will help develop the Minnesota Agriculture Water Quality Certification Program. The new program is the result of an agreement between Gov. Mark Dayton and federal officials, with the goal of enhancing Minnesota’s water quality by accelerating adoption of onfarm water quality practices. The committee will provide recommendations to MDA Commissioner Dave Frederickson regarding the

development of the program, as well as its specific features. “We received more than 60 nominations from around the state, and each one of them was impressive,” Frederickson said. “This is a strong and diverse committee, and we’re looking forward to working with the members to develop a common-sense program that results in cleaner rivers, streams and lakes.” Membership will be: • Douglas Albin, farmer and chairman of Yellow Medicine County Corn

THE LAND, JULY 6, 2012

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The relatively new grape and wine industry of Minnesota now boasts 40 wineries and approximately 1,500 acres of grape vineyards. There has been tremendous growth in recent years, and there’s more to come as evidenced by the Mike Stokes optimism at this year’s Minnesota Grape Growers Conference. Despite the excitement, a visit with a California grape grower and wine producer puts those Minnesota numbers into perspective. Mike Stokes of Lodi, Calif., already grows about 5,000 acres of grapes and is planting another 300 acres this year. He’s part owner of S&L Vineyards, a grape and wine business now in its 15th year. Meanwhile, Stokes Farms, a third-generation operation, has been on the scene for 70 years growing cherries, apples, alfalfa, silage corn, other grains and lots of grapes. Because California is America’s No. 1 dairy state, Stokes Farms does 2,000 acres of alfalfa, generating six to seven cuts per year with all sales to area dairy farmers. Thanks to irrigation, even with this many cuttings his alfalfa produces about three-quarter-ton per cutting (which typically is every 30 to 32 days). He gets five to seven years production from his alfalfa. But let’s talk grapes. The first vines planted by the Stokes family were in 1966 and that vineyard is still producing. “We have about 17 different varieties of grapes simply to meet the different consumer tastes. Different flavors with different profiles for different markets are what the grape and wine business is all about,” Stokes said. Minnesota vineyards are comfortable with 2 to 2 1/2 tons per acre; some do 3-plus tons. For S&L Vineyards, even their 45- to 47-year-old vines do about 3 1/2 to 4 tons. Newer vines do about 8 tons with some of the whites doing slightly better. Drip irrigation, which permits “spoon feeding” selected fertility nutrients, plays a huge role in these vineyard yields. Most obvious is the 365 days of mostly favorable sunshine and temperatures. Stokes says that in his area, cool delta breezes drop evening temperatures 15 to 25 degrees which lessens heat stress “… and brings out those exotic grape flavors on our vines.” Perhaps surprising to Midwesterners is that 18 to 30 inches is the usual rainfall in his part of California. But this past winter was unusually dry for S&L Vineyards so early drip irrigation was going, plus flood irrigation on those acres where it fits. He named off several different herbicides used depending upon the grape variety and the weed issues. Growing grapes in California is intensive with sulfur spraying, for example, every seven to nine days. But with the right equipment you cover a lot of ground. “I sulfur spray about 400 acres a night with my machines. Plus we usually do two wetable foliar sprays each crop. So about 10 sprays per season;

Minnesota’s grape industry is on the rise By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Though he lives in Bloomington, Minn., Ron Barnes’ 6-year-old vineyard is 30 miles south in Rice County. His vineyard includes seven different varieties, but Marquette, Brianna and Petite Ami dominate among his 1,800 vines. Ron Barnes Barnes is president of the Minnesota Grape Growers Association which held its largest Grape Growers Conference earlier this year in St. Paul. At its first event in 2005 there were barely a dozen vendors exhibiting and fewer than 100 grape growers attending. This year nearly 50 vendors from 14 states and nearly 400 growers from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota participated. There are now 40 licensed wineries in Minnesota compared with 20 in 2005. In contrast, Iowa now has 96 wineries partly because of aggressive economic development projects in many rural communities. Also, bottled wine is a “grocery store” product in Iowa. Not so in Minnesota where the strong political influence of the Minnesota beverage industry has restricted retail sales of wine exclusively to farm wineries and licensed liquor stores. Vineyard acres are not yet part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture crop reporting service, but officials estimate over 1,500 acres of grapes are now planted in Minnesota soils. Each acre has about 500 vines. Each vine can produce about one gallon of wine on average. Do the arithmetic and you get about 750,000 gallons of wine currently from Minnesota vineyards. In 2007 the Minnesota wine industry generated about $36 million in total economic impact (22 wineries at that time). Barnes views growing grapes as an agricultural alternative for many farmers. With the development of more wineries across the landscape he talks of towns and villages building “destination stops” at their local winery as an important part of generating tourism in rural areas. Barnes doesn’t believe this “niche” industry is becoming saturated. “I don’t think there is a saturation point, at least not in the foreseeable future.

Little change in dairy markets at end of Dairy Month across the country that are active but cream supplies for butter are easing and becoming more competitive. Churning is keeping pace with demand and clearances to inventory are lighter. Overall, butter demand is holding steady at good levels for both retail and food service. The Foreign Agriculture Service reports that quota imports of butter for January-to-May 2012 total 2.7 million pounds, 10.6 percent less than the same period in 2011. Imports thus far

in 2012 account for 17.4 percent of the annual quota for the year. Imports of high-tier butter (above quota and with a penalty) are 110,000 pounds, 22.5 percent of last year’s amount in the same time period. May butter stocks totaled 264.3 million pounds, up 4 percent from April and a whopping 55 percent above May 2011, according to the latest Cold

U.S. milk production shows signs of slowing down MIELKE, from pg. 21 Storage data. ■ American-type cheese, at 623.2 million pounds, was down 1 percent from April and virtually unchanged from a year ago. Total cheese stocks remain just over 1 billion pounds, unchanged from April but 2 percent below a year ago. Sara Dorland, managing partner in Ceres Dairy Risk Management LLC in Seattle, Wash., and a Daily Dairy Report analyst, said in the DDR’s website “Audio File” that the report shows cheese stocks declined from April and from a year ago, first time both were down this year but, when asked about the 55 percent increase in butter stocks from a year ago, Dorland said it was not a shock because U.S. supplies last year were down due to a world shortage of fat. “The number looks staggering,” Dorland said, but “the point to pay more attention to is that we’re slowing our overall growth in butter. We’re only 4 percent higher than a month ago.

April stocks were up 22 percent from March.” Butter prices have been pretty solid despite having a large supply on hand, she said, and she believes more people are paying attention to the month-to-month numbers than the year-to-year comparisons. ■ U.S. milk production is showing signs of slowing. Hot weather is being blamed for much of the decline as early heat waves enveloped much of the country. Lower milk prices and high feed costs are contributing to the slowdown. FC Stone’s June 26 eDairy Insider Opening Bell reported: “Hot weather over the middle of the country, with daily high temperatures forecast around 100 degrees and lows above 70 for most of the next 10 days, likely will limit production.” The weather is negatively impacting milk production in a lot of these areas, said Bill Brooks, economist at INTL FC Stone. He adds that weather is relatively mild in the Northeast and West, but the dairy

MARKETING

industry in those regions is trying to limit milk production so the year-onyear increase for June may be less than 2 percent, “but much of the weather impact is already built in the market.” Looking “back to the futures,” after factoring in the announced federal order Class III milk prices and the remaining futures, the average Class III milk price for the first six months of 2012 stood at $15.70 on May 11 and $15.90 on June 15. The last half was averaging $15.96 on June 1, $16.53 on June 8, $16.59 on June 15, $17.01 on June 22, and was trading around $17.35 late morning June 29. ■ Higher feed costs and slightly higher overhead costs raised average milk production costs in May 2012, according to the USDA’s monthly “Milk Cost of Production,” and reported in Dairy Profit Weekly. Cost estimates are based on total costs per hundredweight of milk sold. Higher purchased and homegrown feed costs led to an overall feed cost of $13.83/cwt., increasing 81 cents/cwt. from April and $1.94/cwt. from May 2011. Only fuel and energy costs were down slightly from both a month and

year earlier. Overall operating costs (including feed) were up 90 cents/cwt. from April and $1.90 from May 2011. The preliminary May 2012 average total cost was $24.80/cwt., up 88 cents from April and $2.17 more than May 2011. The DPW also reported that lower milk prices were offset by lower feed prices, helping give a small boost to the June milk-feed price ratio. The June ratio is 1.38, up from a revised estimate of 1.35 in May, but below 1.87 for June 2011. It marks the 15th consecutive month the ratio has been below 2.0. At $16.10/cwt., the U.S. average milk price was down 10 cents from May and $5 less than June 2011, the lowest since July 2010, according to the DPW. Average alfalfa hay prices declined $14, to $201 per ton; corn prices were down 8 cents, to $6.25 per bushel; and soybeans dipped 30 cents, to $13.70/bu. Estimated monthly cull cow prices (beef and dairy combined) averaged $86.80/cwt. in June, down 90 cents/cwt. from May, but still $10.90/cwt. more than June 2011 ($75.90/cwt.).

mal feeding operations and their environmental releases are subject to state and federal laws. Bradley told the panel that “we are not seeking an exemption from the federal Clean Water Act or the Clean Air Act or similar state laws including any federal or state worker protection laws. We are merely seeking clarification under CERCLA and EPCRA that animal manure does not necessitate an emergency response nor does it create a Superfund site.” ■ On a more pleasant topic, July is national “Ice Cream Month.” Vanilla is the most popular flavor, premium ice cream is the best-selling type of ice cream and frozen yogurt is resurging in popularity among Americans. These are a few of the findings from a recent survey of International Ice Cream Association member companies, which make and distribute an estimated 85 percent of the ice cream and frozen dessert products consumed in the United States. The IICA and the International Dairy Foods Association announced the results of the survey at last week’s 30th Annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party. Of the companies participating in the survey, 92 percent said vanilla is the most popular flavor among consumers followed by chocolate chip mint and cookies-and-cream.

the federal government’s role as the sole arbiter of immigration law, according to the NMPF. In a 5-3 ruling, the court said Arizona in effect had tried to set up a parallel enforcement system that punished illegal immigrants more harshly and interfered with Congressional authority over the nation’s borders. The court rejected parts of the state law that made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to seek work, to fail to carry immigration papers, and that authorized warrantless arrests of people suspected by state and local police of committing deportable offenses. ■ Meanwhile, the NMPF also warned that “Congress needs to make clear that regulations designed to protect the environment against toxic waste do not ensnare dairy farmers and others who raise farm animals.” That message was delivered to the House Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy. The hearing Wednesday on Capitol Hill reviewed legislation introduced by Rep. Billy Long, R-Mo., designated as H.R. 2997, or the Superfund Commonsense Act. It would clarify that manure is not included in the meaning of “hazardous substance” as defined by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act regulations, and also would eliminate the reporting requirement for releases associated with manure under the Emergency Planning & Community Right to Know Act regulation. Testifying on behalf of the dairy industry, Walter Bradley, who works for the Dairy Farmers of America, reminded committee members that concentrated ani-

With the USDA’s Ag Prices report providing “final” May feed prices used in the Milk Income Loss Contract program payment formula, the May MILC payment will be $1.2164/cwt., according to the University of Wisconsin’s Brian Gould. Gould updated his estimated MILC payments into early 2013, based on MILC-related futures contracts as of June 27. Based on those estimates, MILC payments will peak in June, at about $1.30/cwt., dropping to about 99.9 cents in July and 23.7 cents in August. Estimates are always subject to change. Complete details are posted at the “Understanding Dairy Markets” website. ■ The big news was in Washington this week. The Supreme Court upheld “Obamacare” and struck down a significant portion of Arizona’s law to prosecute and deter illegal immigrants, but left one key part intact. According to the National Milk Producers Federation, “the mixed ruling, along with the recent executive order by the Obama administration to stop the deportation of some younger, undocumented individuals, fully illustrates how that, regardless of which path is chosen, the few options for immigration reform remain controversial and divisive. ... At the same time, these developments show how critically necessary it is to resolve the immigration policy conundrum, especially for farmers and other employers.” The court upheld the law’s directive that state and local police may check the immigration status of people they stop when they suspect they lack legal authorization to be in the United States. The justices unanimously stated that federal law already requires immigration officials to respond to status checks from local authorities, and therefore federal immigration law does not preempt this section. The NMPF’s Chris Galen called it “good news” for farmers who rely on immigrant labor in Thursday’s DairyLine radio program, but admitted “there still isn’t a lot of clarity here for employers.” Much of SB1070 was overturned as interfering in

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles Wild, wacky Livestock markets weather market a wild ride

Grain Angles Hybrids put to the test

The market analysis is for the week ending June 29. CORN — Welcome to the wild and wacky weather market. It was all about extreme heat and lack of rain this week in the Eastern Corn Belt as corn prices soared higher before the June 29 reports. Disappointing precipitation and forecasts for any relief began the week, resulting in a limit up (40-cent) Monday session in the supplydriven market. Tuesday’s expanded daily limit of 60 cents wasn’t needed as corn rallied another 30 cents. The low so far in June of $5.06, set June 15, to PHYLLIS NYSTROM this week’s high of $6.56 3/4, is a Country Hedging St. Paul gain of $1.50 or an increase of nearly 30 percent. This crop year is beginning to be compared to 1988. Crop conditions as of June 24 declined 7 to 56 percent good/excellent (a 25-year low for this time of year), and they are expected to fall further. In 1988, conditions for this time were rated 21 percent good/excellent. The market has gone from taking forecasts at face value to wanting to see water in the gauge. The job of the market is to “over ration” supply. There are signs this is beginning to occur with an ethanol plant in Indiana closing due to poor margins, crashing old crop basis levels and poor export sales. Valero has now closed two plants, but they said they expect to resume crushing before harvest. U.S. ethanol production fell again this week to 883,000 barrels per day. This was a 2 percent decline

If you like erratic and fast-moving markets, then the livestock markets are the place to watch. June has been a wild ride and July looks to hold a similar venue. The cattle market slumped through most of June under pressure from declining demand and plenty of beef available in storage. Domestic resistance appeared in the beef market as the beef cutouts moved back toward the $200 per hundredweight level basis choice. Slaughter weights have relatively heavy so beef production has been greater than the demand and thus the increase in beef in cold JOE TEALE storage. Broker Weather has also played a role Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. since hot dry conditions have moved into the greater cattle feeding areas, movement of cattle off of grass and into the feedlots has increased. This increased the short-term supply of cattle and packers took advantage of this scenario and were able to buy cattle at lower prices. This sent both the cash and futures markets tumbling to lower levels near the end of June. On June 22, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The results are as follows: on-feed June 1, 102 percent; placed during May, 115 percent; and marketed during May, 101 percent. The report was seen as slightly negative as the placement number was above expectations as well as the total cattle on feed. The futures responded with lower prices on Mon-

The northern Corn Belt is the garden spot of the nation this year. Indiana and Illinois have suffered a drought that is testing the market’s price limits. The question that remains unanswered is how much damage has been done to growing crops and how the current genetics will respond to the adverse weather. We are surely going to put these new hybrids to the test this year. The grain markets have been reacting to the fear that the projected tight stocks will not satisfy the demand. Clearly the large rally in prices will have a job of rationing the projected supply. The profitability of livestock, dairy and ethanol production TOM NEHER have taken a nosedive during the AgStar VP & Team Leader — Grain Industry past two weeks. Even with record Rochester, Minn. livestock prices, the “crush margins” are in the red for many producers. Ethanol production is particularly getting caught in a negative profitability climate, as we have seen crude oil prices fall and the corn market rally. From the outside, one may think that this type of market rally would be a windfall for the grain producers. This may be true in the short run for producers in the northern Corn Belt as it appears they will have a crop to sell. For those in the drought-stricken areas, high prices are of no value if you don’t have a crop to sell. Yet, we all know that “high prices take care of high prices.” They do not help in controlling the cost of production, as everyone seems to want part of the action. Rents continue to escalate, machinery prices increase, seed inflates and fertilizer demands higher prices.

developments. The caveat to this issue is that the United States is the world’s supplier of soybeans for the next six months until South America has another crop to sell. Interesting enough, there are reports that U.S. beans for October/November actually work on paper into South America. Soybean stocks on hand as of June 1 were 667 million bushels compared to the average trade estimate of 635 million and last year’s 619 million bushels. On-farm inventories are 179 million and are 18 percent less than a year ago. Off-farm stocks of 488 million bushels are 22 percent higher than last year. The bean stocks report was termed slightly bearish. Planted acreage to soybeans was reported at 76.1 million acres. This is 2.2 million more acres than the USDA’s previous 73.902 million acre estimate and 1 percent higher than last year’s 74.976 million acres. The trade estimate was 75.508 million acres. The new figure is the third highest soybean planted acreage in the United States. Weekly export sales were decent at 14.8 million bushels for old crop and are ahead of what is needed on a weekly basis to reach the USDA export forecast. New crop sales were 14.3 million bushels which was also impressive. China and unknown were back in for new crop beans this week. OUTLOOK: Soybeans have the potential to be explosive to the upside if weather continues to be an issue in light of tight balance sheets, even considering the mildly bearish stocks and acreage reports. The uncertainty about how dry weather will affect double-crop soybean planting will be an issue if rain doesn’t hit the eastern Corn Belt soon. Stay glued to your favorite weather site — this ride isn’t over yet. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week as of midday June 29: Minneapolis wheat up 64 1/2 cents, Chicago wheat up 65 1/2 cents, and Kansas City wheat up 59 cents. August crude oil was up $2.42 at $82.18 thanks to Friday’s gains, heating oil up 12 cents, gasoline up 10 1/2 cents and natural gas up 9 cents. The Dow was showing a 181 point gain, the U.S. dollar index was down just over half a point, and July gold was $29.20 higher. The next USDA balance sheets will be released July 11. Grain markets will close at noon July 3 and both pit and electronic trading will resume trading at 9:30 a.m. Central on July 5. Both the pit and electronic sessions now end at 2 p.m. Central. ❖

NYSTROM, from pg. 26 from the previous week and is 1 percent lower than last year. Weekly export sales were lower than the average needed to achieve the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast for the eighth week in a row. Sales were again disappointing at 7.6 million bushels for old crop and 4 million bushels for new crop. The quarterly stocks as of June 1 were 3.149 billion bushels versus the average guess of 3.174 billion bushels. Last year there were 3.67 billion bushels on hand June 1. On-farm stocks of 1.48 billion are down 12 percent from last year and off-farm stocks of 1.67 billion bushels are down 16 percent from a year ago. The report was considered neutral by traders. The planted acreage number came in at 96.4 million acres (an increase of 5 percent from last year) versus 96.06 million acres estimated. The previous USDA estimate was 95.864 million acres and last year we planted 91.921 million acres. The new number is the highest planted corn acreage since 1937 when we planted 97.2 million acres. For Minnesota, 8.7 million corn acres matches the record. Illinois corn acres were increased 500,000, while Iowa’s were cut 600,000 acres from the March intentions report. This could add to the anxiety over the dryness in Illinois. OUTLOOK: An eye-popping week with triple-digit Midwest temperatures and where traders anticipated USDA reports as we headed into first notice day for July contracts, month-end and quarter-end, all coming out on a Friday in a distinct weather market. Add to this uncertainty surrounding global economics, specifically Chinese growth and Europe’s nagging debt crisis. A lateweek European Union summit resulted in progress being reported on cutting debt costs. This propelled energy prices higher and collapsed the U.S. dollar index. As we head into a holiday-shortened week, weather will again be the single driving force behind prices. SOYBEANS — Soybeans rallied this week, but not to the extent of corn. November soybeans set a new contract high at $14.39 3/4 per bushel. Beans still have time to bounce back from adverse growing conditions. Bean conditions as of June 24 were 53 percent good/excellent, a 3-percent decline week on week. An unknown, however, will be how many acres that were intended to be double-cropped will actually be planted. We won’t know that answer for a few more weeks, so stay tuned for further

sharp discount to the lean index. As the cash market began to weaken, the futures market now appears to be finding some stability in the last few days of June. Obviously these two must come together by expiration. It is likely that the cash market will continue to drift lower, while the futures market works a little higher. The problem that seems to be hanging over the market is the supply of pork. The latest cold storage report indicates there is plenty of pork in storage and with projections for the upcoming USDA hogs and Pigs Report due on June 29 to show all hogs and pigs at or above 100 percent. This would indicate there is plenty of supply and will demand be great enough to absorb this supply. As pork cutouts moved upwards toward the $100/cwt. level in recent weeks, there has been a noticeable drop in the movement of pork product. This defensive action in the movement of pork suggests that long-term rallies in hog prices seem unlikely at this time. Producers should be aware of the market conditions and protect inventories when available. ❖

Timely rains, cooler temps needed to avert damage NEHER, from pg. 26 The greatest damage is done to the end-users of grain. The ethanol industry is shutting down plants as I write this column. They can stop production much quicker than the livestock and dairy sectors. The animals still must be fed until they are slaughtered. When this happens the demand base for grain is damaged or destroyed. When this happens, it can take years to recover. This all could be averted with some timely, general rains and cooler weather. Either way “high prices take care of high prices,” be they short-term or long-term. During this time of the year, around the Fourth of July holiday, many families take time to gather together to celebrate the freedoms that we enjoy in this country. Many will take vacations and take the time to rest, restore relationships and strengthen family ties. It is important to do these things, because we are blessed with many things that are so easily taken for granted. Remember to take the time to tell those who mean the most to you how much you value their relationship. It is important to give thanks to all of those who have worked for our freedom, peace and justice. ❖


Planting the right messages may make farms safer for children who work on farms, according to the researchers. The campaigns could also help raise awareness for the proper instruction of farm equipment, which can range from complex harvesting equipment to all-terrain vehicles. Yoder said most of focus group participants were drawn from crop farms under 100 acres. Those farmers tended to use older, unprotected equipment and were most open to learning new techniques to improve farm safety. They also

own and contracted hogs and raise corn and soybeans on their Le Sueur County farm. Mensink was nominated by delegates at National Pork Forum in March and was appointed to the National Pork Board by U.S. Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack in June. He will serve a three-year-term. Mensink currently serves on the Pork Checkoff domestic marketing, resolutions/advisements, retail advisory and foodservice advisory committees, and the plan of work task force. At the state level he is on the promotion and image committee and volunteers his time promoting pork. Mensink and his wife, Pam, are owners of Mensink Pork, a feeder pig-tofinish farm that annually markets 9,000 head. They also raise corn, soybeans and alfalfa. Both Richter and Mensink gained leadership and Pork Checkoff program experience while serving as Minnesota Pork Board presidents and board members. ❖

“We’re seeing more of these types of farmers, too, who are coming into the industry from other types of occupations,” Yoder said. “Which is actually a good thing because they also seem more open to new ideas and appreciate the information we pass on.”

Richter elected Pork Board VP; Mensink appointed to NPB National Pork Board members elected Karen Richter of Montgomery, Minn., as vice president during board meetings this summer. Joining Richter on the 15-member board is Craig Mensink of Preston, Minn. Richter is completing her fourth year on the National Pork Board where she chairs the administrative committee and serves on the pork products committees. Prior to her election as vice president, she served as board treasurer and chair of the finance committee. She has also chaired the state and national relations taskforce and nominating committee, and has served on the trade, producer services, audit and resolution committees and the plan of work task force. At the state level, Richter is active on committees, volunteers as an Operations Main Street speaker and frequently contributes her time to pork promotional and educational events.

2008, 58 people died in farm-related, tractor-rollover accidents in Pennsylvania alone, Yoder said. The researchers used surveys and focus groups to gather information about what would motivate farmers to buy and install a ROPS on an older-model tractor, and what barriers prevent them from installing the equipment. They published their findings in the Journal of Agromedicine and were to present the information at the International Society for Agricultural Safety and Health conference on June 28 in Burlington, Vt. Participants in the focus groups indicated that cost was one barrier, but offering a rebate on the ROPS could serve as motivator to persuade farmers to install the device, the researchers found. Yoder said adding rollover bars to the tractors would cost about $1,000. He said a rebate that cut that cost by 70 percent was considered a strong motivator. The participants indicated that child safety would also motivate them to install safety equipment. “They wanted to protect their kids,” Yoder said. “They may not be too worried about their own safety, but they want to keep their kids safe.” Social marketing campaigns could be used for other farm safety issues, such as adding safety guards to equipment and determining age-appropriate tasks

THE LAND, JULY 6, 2012

Better marketing tactics may lead to improved safety in one of the nation’s most dangerous occupations — farming, according to Penn State researchers. “Along with mining and construction, farming is one of the top three most hazardous industries,” said Aaron Yoder, instructor of agricultural and biological engineering. “Farming is also less regulated and has more exemptions than other industries.” Social marketing campaigns that focus on the benefits of and barriers to persuading people to change behaviors could help raise awareness about farm safety issues, Yoder said. In the past, organizations have used social marketing tactics in creating successful campaigns to change such behaviors as smoking and overeating. “When we think of marketing, we usually think of using it to sell something, but in the case of social marketing, we’re using it to try to change behaviors,” Yoder said. Yoder, who worked with Dennis Murphy, distinguished professor of agricultural safety and health, studied how social marketing principles could be used to persuade people to install rollover protective structures on older-model tractors. A ROPS consists of a frame and a seat belt that offers protection to the driver if the tractor rolls over. Between 2000 and

To improve the overall header height performance, an enhanced software has been released. The Gen II software improves header response and reaction time when harvesting. The new software increases header reaction time for both lateral tilt and header up/down. The Gen II software also has new features that an operator can select to tailor the header height to the field conditions. These improvements maximize grain saving by providing improved cutting performance when harvesting in uneven terrain conditions. The header height software also utilizes a new calibration procedure that ensures all sensors are properly calibrated.

Red Rock Falls, Cottonwood County, Minn.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

by rich productive farmland. There is Sometimes, however, we’re just not omeone once told us that her grandS parents drove their covered wagon looking in the right places. On a recent even a cave. trip we decided to turn off the highway through Iowa to buy land in Oklahoma. She could never understand why they chose that red dirt over Iowa’s rich black soils. Perhaps they were looking for something better. In a way we too often overlook the beauty around us. We think other states have so much more to offer in the way of nature’s picturesque elegance and vacation spots — that our area was designed only for growing corn, soybeans and livestock, not for enjoying.

and follow the Cottonwood County sign proclaiming Red Rock Falls just a bit further down the gravel road. We had been sitting in the car way too long and needed a break anyway. We stopped and walked a slight incline, not knowing what to expect. Imagine our delight when we heard, then saw with our own eyes, a 30-foot waterfall filling a small lake with water. The rocks there are amazing, especially since they are surrounded

Following the pathway past the waterfall along the stream of water under the trees, we found a cool spot where sunlight filtered through the leaves of trees. We didn’t talk much, awed by the beauty there. The water gently came down layers of rock, in many places shallow enough to walk across. Birds filled the air with the music they have sung since creation. A farm place borders the east side. I wonder what the first settler thought when he discovered the falls on his

property; was he impressed as we were, or was he wishing for land that produced a hundredfold? Cottonwood County has many parks, including Talcot Lake, South Dutch Charley, Mountain, Dynamite, Pat’s Grove, Highwater and Sara, in addition to Red Rock Falls. Some of their names are rather intriguing, encouraging further investigating. Methinks we shall be stopping the car more often to follow the arrows on destination signs to see what treasures lay along our back roads. ❖
