OPINION


Letter: Farmers kept economy afloat OPINION

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-aplate 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.

THE LAND, JULY 13, 2012

To the Editor: Recently you published a commentary by Dennis Avery about ethanol policy (June 29 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

Letter: Amendment just ‘smoke, mirrors’ 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.

Equal treatment, not special treatment MINDS, from pg. 2 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.

To the Editor: In reply to letter about marriage and the Democrats (“Letter: Dems sabotaging marriage”) in the June 29 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?

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.

Pats on the back and kicks in the pants for Guebert On an early morning bicycle ride I roll past a massive red combine slumbering at the end of a freshly barbered wheat field. The machine is so big that the 40acre blonde bed it rests in looks more like a playground than a farm field.

2010 election) on a project halfway around the world even as the university struggles to maintain its Extension programs in Iowa. “These facts send chills down my spine,” wrote Paul from north central Iowa.

That scene — red combine, trimmed wheat field, bright sunshine — causes me to back-pedal 50 years to the farm of my youth where I see my father, in the FARM & FOOD FILE center of a rolling cloud of gray dust, combining wheat with a then-state of the By Alan Guebert art IH 303.

Dianne, from South Dakota, echoed the feeling. “I am involved in mission work in the Central African Republic and find ... this deplorable.”

Mike, an ISU alum living in southern Missouri, wrote to say thanks and note that “unfortunately, we are going to see more of these violations of the public interest as the decline in state funding for public colleges (means more) private sector partnerships.”

OPINION

Some of you are there, too, because each time I offer a 650-word snapshot of my family’s by-gone southern Illinois dairy farm I receive a wave of e-mails and letters from readers who recall their family farm, its people and shared times.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

In the past six months, however, the columns that generated the most mail were two on Iowa State University’s cozy arrangements with one of its governing regents, political kingmaker Bruce Rastetter, to ramp up an 800,000-acre “farm” in Tanzania. Most writers were stunned that a Land Grant university like ISU would be hooked up with an operative like Rastetter (he was named regent of Iowa’s major universities by Gov. Terry Branstad after he poured a reported $160,000 into the guv’s

Two columns detailing this past winter’s slimy controversy on adding lean, finely textured beef to hamburger brought salt and pepper from every corner of the planet. A couple, like this one from Nebraska, contained some red meat of its own. “I will be having discussion with our local paper about providing a more fair and balanced approach ... I am quite sure that I ... can make you look very uneducated if you continue to publish articles of this nature.” A tribute to Willard Cochrane, a legendary University of Minnesota ag economist who passed away

March 5 drew kudos and boos alike. One e-mail, from a former dairyman named Joe, noted that he “continues to read your column to attempt to understand how you represent agriculture.” Like Cochrane, he chides, “maybe ... with federal money ... your views of progress (will be) fulfilled.” A May 17 e-mail from Chris in Colorado has to be the finest pat-on-the-back/kick-in-the-pants letter I’ve ever received. It begins warmly: “I follow your columns ... mostly to the dismay of my friends at the sale barn.” After a few more compliments, Chris cracks out the shoe leather to kick me on my “obsession” with the beef checkoff and my “confusing” beef demand with beef consumption. He then takes a poke at beef’s “paranoid malcontents” who “hide their xenophobia behind big hats and mustaches.” Then his sunny side re-emerges and he closes with “But enough of our differences. Thank you for writing at least 50 columns a year that give me food for thought, cause for alarm, and so often beautifully depict life in our small community.” Wow, anyone that eloquent is always welcome in my e-mail inbox. And to the letter writer who not once, but twice, snail-mailed a four-page letter about one state’s grain-funded “travel agency,” I’m in the book; call me. You can call, too, but like that kid who sees a combine and still thinks IH 303, I still love gettin’ mail.

Parades — Understanding an American tradition At one parade I was at, we also witnessed a new and large group with a strong message. It was called “G.L.A.S.S.” — (“Gaining Life After Surviving Suicide.”) They carried a stunning and courageous anti-bullying message. It really made me think about the fact that we cannot always know the road that others walk. Then there are those helping us remember others who have struggled with cancer — asking us to walk for them, and “fight like a girl.” My mother is doing that now. There are Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. There are kids with face paint, kids wearing 4-H shirts, kids grabbing candy and devouring it, class reunion floats, and of course, the area Shriners doing their thing to raise money for crippled children. But on parade day, it’s just a group of older guys having fun and getting to act like kids again. A parade gives us permission to forget our troubles on a sunny day, to be lazy and have a little fun on a Saturday morning. It’s a chance for a community to rally together to celebrate their little corner of the world. For a couple of hours, people don’t care if you pull up a lawn chair and relax on their property, uninvited. After all, they know that by the time the horses go by, the sun has set on another community parade, and their lawn will be theirs again. You gotta love America — along with the street cleaners that follow the horses. Karen Schwaller brings “Table Talk” to The Land from her home near Milford, Iowa.

Floats from neighboring communities are invitations on wheels, inviting us to stop and smell the roses with them for awhile. You don’t need to go to London to see royalty, as our own brand of royalty grace our parades in the form of the local cattlemen’s princess, the county fair queen, the county pork queen, the homecoming king and queen, and around northwest Iowa, Emmetsburg’s own “Miss Shamrock.” You’ll see the smiles of kids as they sit up on their dad’s shoulders so they won’t miss anything; old cars — bringing smiles (especially) from those who remember buying them new back in the day. On the flip side, there are new convertibles — offering us a chance to dream. There are humorous floats, clowns, and at one parade I was at, there were some nursing home residents riding in the parade representing those who care for them. I can’t think of anything more appropriate as those people worked hard, fought for this country and passed this community on to us.

THE LAND, JULY 13, 2012

It’s pretty hard to beat a summer parade down any main street in any community — especially a good oldfashioned parade right here in the Midwest. Parades around here begin with our public servants — the local fire and rescue people, ambulance TABLE TALK crew and our law enforcement officials — people who By Karen Schwaller are there for us in our hour of need. Aside from when we need their services, there is no other time to be more thankful for men and women in our communities who devote time in training for these important roles for our benefit. And just as importantly, our veterans holding high the flags of the United States, of Foreign Wars, and of the POWs and MIAs. It’s hard not to get a lump in your throat as you see these men walk by in uniform. They carry the ultimate symbol — 50 states represented under one flag, paid for with American blood, so that we could have the right to have a parade on a summer Saturday morning if we want. These veterans returned from their service to our country — and on parade day they help us remember those who did not. I once heard that, “A person is not dead until they are forgotten.” Those people are out there helping us to keep those valiant men and women alive — if only in our hearts. A parade is a delicious slice of Americana in motion. American flags are everywhere — in the crowd, and in the parade. Flags of every state line the boulevard. Flags, flag-colored balloons and flag pinwheels can be found swirling from floats and the fronts of vehicles. And red, white and blue are the colors of our hearts — and of the day. Here in the Corn Belt, agriculture is what it’s all about — and our pride shows a little bit when it comes to parades. When you come to a parade in rural America, you will see the local FFA students on a float, proud to proclaim their rural heritage. You’ll see the local elevators represented, some antique

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 40-gallon 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 absorbtion See SOLAR, pg. 11


More solar power applications as technology improves • 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. ❖

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 MMorris campus, a 32 flat-plate 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. Log in to http://renewables.morris.umn.edu/solar/technology for more information. • 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.

SOLAR, from pg. 10 chiller to capture the heat energy and convert it into chilled water. A Yazaki WFC-SC10 absorbtion 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

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles High temps send Livestock markets corn soaring a wild ride

Grain Angles Hybrids put to the test

The following market analysis is for the week ending July 6. CORN — It’s in markets like these that you get tired of repeating yourself, and this year the repeating word is “weather.” Weather, weather, weather — hot and dry conditions sent corn soaring to new contract highs in a holiday-shortened week. The maps going home July 6 show some relief from triple-digit temperatures and heat indexes, but significant rainfall is still elusive. On the July 5 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration drought monitor maps, 48 percent of Illinois was PHYLLIS NYSTROM Country Hedging shown as having severe or St. Paul extreme drought and 92 percent of Indiana in the same boat. Outside markets and economics are distant seconds in driving agricultural prices and barely rate a mention. Crop conditions are expected to show another sharp drop as of July 8 after last week’s fall to 48 percent good/excellent versus 69 percent last year. In 1988, corn was 23 percent good/excellent for the same week. The trade will be looking for 40 to 45 percent of the corn crop to be silking as of July 8 as compared to 2 percent July 1. The United Nations was talking about food inflation this week with the U.S. crops deteriorating and even the New York Times posted an article about the U.S. drought. One area that is adding bushels is Brazil. Conab this week increased their 2011-12 crop estimate to 69.5 million metric tons due to a big safrinha (second crop). The market is trying to ration demand as seen in lower weekly ethanol production numbers. This week production fell 26,000 barrels per day to levels

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 storage. Weather has also played a role since hot dry conditions have JOE TEALE Broker moved into the greater cattle feeding areas, movement of cattle Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. 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 Monday and subsequently the cash followed later in the week with lower prices. The markets became oversold and this allows the opportunity for the market to adjust back to higher levels. Considering the economy is still questionable at best, a long-term rally

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 have taken a TOM NEHER nosedive during the past two AgStar VP & Team Leader — Grain Industry weeks. Even with record livestock Rochester, Minn. 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. 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

Soybean yield prospect cries coming if no rain

Hog market a study of opposites TEALE, from pg. 12 seems unlikely but a short-term rally may be at hand. This should provide producers an opportunity to protect their inventories in the weeks ahead. The hog market seemed to be a study of opposites during the past few weeks. The cash market seemed to remain firm while the futures market came under heavy long liquidation and prices dropped in a steady decline. This put the futures market at a 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. ❖

rains don’t materialize to halt declining yield potential and buyers continue to purchase U.S. soybeans. Weekly export sales were good this week at 11 million bushels for old crop and 53.8 million for new crop. Total sales commitments for new crop are nearly double what they were last year at this time. Informa Economics’ new soybean yield estimate is 42.0 bu./acre, down 0.7 from their last estimate and compared to the USDA 43.9 bu./acre prediction. Last year’s U.S. bean yield averaged 41.5 bu./acre. Informa’s crop production is projected to be 3.161 billion bushels. The last USDA estimate was 3.205 billion and last year we produced 3.056 billion bushels. Minnesota’s soybean yield is forecasted at 45 bu./acre, up 6 bushels from last year. Illinois bean yield is projected at 46 bu./acre versus 47 last year; Indiana unchanged from last year at 45; Iowa 50 versus 51 last year; and South Dakota 39 versus 37 last year. OUTLOOK: Soybeans have the tighter balance sheet, but they also have time to recover from early adverse growing conditions. We haven’t rationed beans yet as evidenced by old and new crop sales announced by the USDA this week. Weather will be key in where we go from here, but the first support area will be the gap left in the November contract from $14.78 to $14.93 per bushel. I would be cautious, but the outlook for higher prices based on weather and demand is still in place. For the week, November beans set a contract high at $15.29 before closing at $15.05 3/4 per bushel, up 78 cents for the week. ❖

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

margins are negative and export sales are horrible. Weekly export sales were an insignificant 0.8 million bushels of old crop and 5.3 million bushels for new crop. However, the market will usually overcompensate in either direction. We need to see some water hit the ground before our ride is over, but the short-term relief from extreme heat this week may slow the run to the upside. Making any prediction about how high we can go is futile, but when the break comes, it could be severe and fast. The gap left this week in the December contract from $6.76 to $6.85 1/2 will be the first area of support. For the week, December corn was up 58 1/4 cents, settling at $6.93 per bushel. SOYBEANS — While soybeans still have the ability to recover from the current substandard conditions, in another week without decent rainfall I believe we will be hearing cries from the soybean sector about yield prospects. Crop ratings this week at 45 percent good/excellent for the week ending July 1 versus 66 percent last week were the lowest since 1988. In 1988, beans were at 18 percent for the same week. With the United States being the only shipper left with the ability to make additional sales, a tight 201213 balance sheet in the making should continue to push prices higher. This week a sale of 1.19 mmt of new crop soybeans to unknown was reported by the USDA and China bought 120,000 mt of old crop U.S. beans. It would be a challenge to make an argument against testing the record high November price of $16.36 3/4 sometime in the future if measurable

NYSTROM, from pg. 12 we haven’t seen since last September. Ethanol stocks dropped 464,000 barrels to 20.3 million barrels. The market’s job is to ration demand and it still has a way to go to accomplish this. If prices continue to rise, there are already suggestions that the ethanol world will be asking for relief from the production mandate. Informa Economics updated their yield and production numbers this week. They dropped the U.S. average corn yield to 153.5 bushels per acre from their last estimate of 154.9 bu./acre and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 166 bu./acre. Last year the average yield in the United States was 147.2 bu./acre. Informa Economics production forecast is 13.641 billion bushels versus the USDA’s 14.79 billion bushels and last year’s 12.358 million bushel crop. Minnesota’s corn yield is expected to be 176 bu./acre, 20 bu./acre higher than last year’s yield. South Dakota’s yield is pegged at 138 versus 132 last year; Illinois 158 versus 157 last year; Iowa 178 versus 172 last year; and Indiana 150 versus 146 last year. July 11 the USDA will release their monthly supply-demand balance sheets. The largest corn yield decline seen on a July report is 4.7 bu./acre seen in 1993. A drop that small this year would seem miniscule when the last USDA number was 166 bu./acre and some are hinting the number could be in the mid-140s. OUTLOOK: The market’s job of rationing corn may finally be having some effect as talk about Brazilian corn being sold into the Southeast surfaced late in the week, ethanol margins are in the red, livestock

modity & Ingredient Hedging LLC and reported by Dairy Profit Weekly. Affecting margins, the second half of June featured a blistering corn rally brought on by sharply deteriorating crop conditions due to expanding drought across the Midwest. The USDA’s Cold Storage report showed May 31 American cheese stocks totaled 623.2 million pounds, down 9.5 million from April and only slightly above a year ago. Given that stocks normally tend to increase between April and May (with 2007 being the only other exception in recent times), the data suggest better demand and supports the firming cheese price trend during June. ■ The Food and Drug Administration approved the growth hormone recombinant bovine somatotrophin for use in 1994. Six years after adoption, approximately 18.3 percent of the U.S. dairy herd was treated with rBST, according to USDA survey data and reported in the June 29 issue of the Daily Dairy Report. Since then, the percent of U.S. dairy cows treated with rBST has fallen from 15.5 percent in 2005 to 8.8 percent in 2010. The USDA tracks rBST use along with milking frequency and organic milk production as part of the periodic Agricultural Resource Management Survey. The 2010 ARMS data provided rBST

use by herd size and state. While rBST is used on farms of various sizes, it is not used in every state. For example, 2 percent of the cows in herds with less than 50 cows were treated with rBST. However, it might be more surprising to learn that the greatest use of rBST at 21.9 percent occurred on dairies with 500 to 999 cows, while just 6.8 percent of cows in herds of more than 1,000 received rBST. Kansas had the most prevalent use of rBST in 2010 with 31 percent of the state’s herd treated followed by Wisconsin with 21.5 percent. However, Pennsylvania ranked third in rBST use with 20.4 percent of the state’s herd treated. Minnesota was fourth in use and New York was fifth, with 18.6 percent and 13.4 percent of the cows treated, respectively. Iowa rounded out the states with doubledigit rBST use at 13.3 percent. California, the largest milk-producing state, reported that 5 percent of its herd received rBST in 2010. States that reported no use of rBST include Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington.

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

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) 294-0035 or e-mail domoto@iastate.edu. ❖

THE LAND, JULY 13, 2012

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

There has a vineyard and produce quality grapes. been tremendous growth in recent years, and there’s more to come as evi— Mike Stokes denced by the optimism at this year’s Minnesota Grape Growers Conference. ferDespite the excitement, a visit with a California ent flavors with different profiles for different margrape grower and wine producer puts those Min- kets are what the grape and wine business is all nesota numbers into perspective. about,” Stokes said. Mike Stokes of Lodi, Calif., already grows about Minnesota vineyards are comfortable with 2 to 2 5,000 acres of grapes and is planting another 300 acres 1/2 tons per acre; some do 3-plus tons. For S&L Vinethis year. He’s part owner of S&L Vineyards, a grape yards, even their 45- to 47-year-old vines do about 3 and wine business now in its 15th year. Meanwhile, 1/2 to 4 tons. Newer vines do about 8 tons with some Stokes Farms, a third-generation operation, has been of the whites doing slightly better. on the scene for 70 years growing cherries, apples, Drip irrigation, which permits “spoon feeding” alfalfa, silage corn, other grains and lots of grapes. selected fertility nutrients, plays a huge role in these Because California is America’s No. 1 dairy state, vineyard yields. Most obvious is the 365 days of mostly Stokes Farms does 2,000 acres of alfalfa, generating favorable sunshine and temperatures. Stokes says that six to seven cuts per year with all sales to area dairy in his area, cool delta breezes drop evening temperafarmers. Thanks to irrigation, even with this many tures 15 to 25 degrees which lessens heat stress “… and cuttings his alfalfa produces about three-quarter-ton brings out those exotic grape flavors on our vines.” per cutting (which typically is every 30 to 32 days).

He named “We have about 17 different varieties of grapes off several different herbicides used depending upon simply to meet the different consumer tastes. Dif- 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; however once verasion stops, no more sprays. Disease is an issue in California vineyards much like anywhere else. “Our problem is that we have resistant root stocks so from the roots going up we’re OK. But our problem is insects attacking us from the plant going down,” he said. Bare land costs to start a California vineyard are $12,000 to $15,000 per acre. To buy an established vineyard figure $25,000 to $40,000 even up to $100,000 per acre. However by the time that vineyard is planted, staked, trellised, wired, etc., Stokes indicated you’re at $25,000 to $30,000 per acre. So how does a California vintner relate to all the excitement of the Midwest grape and wine industry? “You want grape growers and wineries everywhere to provide a quality product to the consumer. We have some very unique flavors from some of our California wines. You guys in the Upper Midwest are true grape producers because you have the most difficult environment in which to start a vineyard and produce quality grapes. “By comparison, we have it easy in California. Nature provides all the right elements for growing the crop. We have some of the world’s best wine makers. We provide great juices from our vineyards to blend with your Minnesota grapes so that your wines too have great taste, flavor and aroma.” Today all wine is good regardless the state of origin, said Stokes, an obvious enthusiast for the product. He said that because it is such an excellent beverage it should be affordable for everyone, and that is why there will continue to be yearly expansion of the U.S. wine industry.

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. ❖
