THE LAND, OCTOBER 19, 2012

To the Editor: Time for the truth squad. The Obama administration took over $716 billion out of the Medicare fund and placed it in the Obamacare bill. Now this is money that you and I have paid to guarantee that the fund would have the ability to pay the doctor bills when we needed them. This is no different than buying health insurance today from a private company. The Obama administration was going to replace the $716 billion with a promise that they would make savings in Obamacare, by delaying payments to doctors and other providers. In other words, a bum check. If a private bank, investment broker or insurance company would do this they would be thrown in jail. The doctor who treated you would have to pay his help, suppliers, his college costs, etc., without any money coming in the door. How is that for taking care of our medical needs? On the TV ads they tell us that the Republican program that guarantees those over 55, the same program that we have today, is going to cost the older individuals, thousands of dollars. It’s a lie. The proposal would continue their Medicare protection at the present level. For those younger they would have the opportunity to try a different approach which would give them a better option. Barack Obama says that the private sector is doing fine but we find all kinds of businesses failing every day. This has been happening for as long as the United States has been in existence. When the bank has to foreclose they try to recover as much as they can by selling the business to someone else. That is when the Romneys, the Buffets, the Chinese, Italians and other venture capitalists become involved. Mitt Romney has been very successful in turning

Commentary: Marriage is about procreation, not love To change the definition of marriage is like saying that we will now call an apple an orange. Just calling the apple an orange will not change the apple into an orange. Changing the name of the apple to that of an orange will not change the substance of the apple. It will still be an apple in taste and flavor. The definition of marriage has always been understood to be that of a covenantal vow between a man and a women with the aim of procreating, creating a family. The family has always been the basic cornerstone of any civilization, is the basis of any village, town, city and civilization that has ever thrived. For many centuries love had little to do with it as marriages were often arranged very early in life as they still are in some back waters of the world. To change the definition of marriage to that of a couple stating publicly that they love each other is utterly alien to the term of marriage and it cannot be done. It goes against the natural law. The natural law — what is that? Mankind has been around for some 130,000 years on this planet; some 50,000 in our present state called modern man. The majority of those years mankind laid outside, slept outside under the stars thinking and telling stories to pass the time. The advent of the TV to pass the time is a relatively new thing. Even the reading of books to pass the time is relatively new phenomenon. As man through the centuries thought and talked under the stars he came to realize that there were certain phenomena or traits that were common to the rise and fall of villages, towns, cities and even

empires. Certain traits led to the rise and the neglect of these traits would lead to a degeneration and even disintegration of those villages, cities and empires. These traits came to be known as the natural law. One of these natural laws is that it is a man and a woman in a sustained and binding relationship that is the basic cornerstone and basic building block of a prosperous society. Other natural laws are common courtesy items like don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t cheat and don’t sleep with the neighbor’s spouse. The breaking of a natural law leads to pain and misery for the individual and an eventual fracturing of the society. This has been observed and noted countless times in the history of mankind. That is why the institution of marriage as that of being a relationship between a man and a woman has been elevated in every society and civilization that has ever arisen on this earth to that as being something extraordinary and even necessary. Only now when we no longer lie under the stars at night sharing thoughts and thinking deeply about the mysteries of life is the natural law being challenged and forgotten. The consequences of this neglect are dire; just ask the citizens of past civilizations, some long forgotten. The Catholic Church realizes this, teaches this and that is why it so stridently opposes changing the definition of marriage. The marriage amendment changes nothing as far as current laws go. It only is meant to safeguard one of the basic natural building blocks of society from radical extremist judicial judgments and opinions.

OPINION

This has been happening elsewhere in our country changing radically how society looks at the world. These changes are being made by an extreme minority and forced on the majority. The marriage amendment is an attempt to safeguard the will of the majority and a natural law that is so basic to the survival of our society, our civilization. A letter to the editor of The Land a while back stated this amendment to be a religious freedom issue and that the passage of the marriage amendment would be an attack against the religious freedom of certain congregations wanting to marry same-sex attracted people. What could happen and does happen if this marriage amendment is not passed? (Remember if passed it changes nothing but serves only to safeguard the definition of marriage in our state.) The definition of marriage will be changed as it already has been in a few other states against the will of the majority. When that happens, and it surely will, any church that will not marry two same-sex attracted people may be liable to costly lawsuits of discrimination and bigotry. The church will not be able to teach scriptural truths to the fullest without fear of facing costly lawsuits as it tries to live out and teach the basic tenets of the natural law. It is very possible that many congregations will be forced to get out of the marrying business. So much for religious freedom. The attack on the traditional definition of marriage is in the same vein as Obama’s Health and Human Services mandate on abortion and artificial birth control. The killing of innocent unborn babies is an act against the natural law and the church will never be party to it. Changing the definition of marriage to something that it is not is like the HHS mandate. It is a blatant attack on religious freedom and my church, and should not be tolerated. So this November please vote yes on the marriage amendment and please remember not voting on the amendment will be counted as a no vote. So again please vote yes. So much depends on it.

Four more years?

CANDIDATE, from pg. 3A exhale every day, is defined as a pollutant and so we can no longer use coal to generate our electricity, the unemployment level that is continuing, the problems with hooking up the oil lines from Canada. These are all problems that are occurring on the Obama watch. They no longer can blame it on the Republicans, insurance companies, oil companies and everyone else. It is just good politics for them to try to change the subject and blame it on Romney. Obama’s mantra is “just give me four more years and trust me.” When he was first elected we had a problem with China’s reluctance to allow their currency to move with its true value. He had seven opportunities to pursue this and took no action until a proposal a few weeks ago. How long would we have to wait until he would try again? Al Schumann Eyota, Minn.


Letter: Don’t reduce marriage to place for legal sex influence and insight in their lives. Two males do not equal mom. Two females do not equal dad. The wants of adults must never precede the needs of children. With the acceptance of contraception, abortion and sterilization, society has often reduced marriage to a place for legal sex. In the spirit of fairness, we hear the cry for all to have legal sex. This new meaning of marriage

MINDS, from pg. 2A thanks in part to the Iowa secretary of agriculture and the Iowa lieutenant governor agreeing to co-chair the Global Compassion Network projects. As projects grow, bigger facilities are sometimes needed. DeYoung’s Conquest airplane is too big for his hangar at the Pocahontas airport so next on his agenda is a new, bigger hangar which perhaps can also function as a headquarters facility for the GCN. His farm/business telephone is (712) 3582226. Also check the GCN website noted on Page 2A. Some areas again have been blessed with some surprisingly good crops. Harvest is rapidly winding down, as is fall

tillage. Commodity prices, though dancing virtually every day, remain surprisingly good. If you haven’t yet earmarked your own “angel mission,” maybe costsharing a steel bin for a family home in Haiti isn’t the dumbest thought. Meanwhile my closing thought with Nov. 6 elections fast approaching: “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.” Don’t be an abstainer. Vote even if you aren’t pleased with the process. Dick Hagen is staff writer of The Land.

will result in school children being taught that all sexual activity is “normal” and thus good. Those in public life who disagree will not be punished with fines or worse for discrimination. Most important, the new definition of marriage will help solve the conscience of sodomites, and who wants to feel guilt?

Government did not create marriage, so government cannot redefine it. We must vote yes on the amendment or government in the form of judges or a legislature will redefine marriage as a place for legal sex. Margaret Jordan Howard Lake, Minn.

THE LAND, OCTOBER 19, 2012

To the Editor: Love, commitment and responsibility should be part of all lives. But they cannot be the determinants for marriage. What makes for marriage is the emotional and physical differences between men and women. Male and female bodies complement each other to form the union from which society’s greatest asset, children, is produced. Children need male and female

OPINION

Rare, however, is the instance when an apparent winner in a science face-off uses so much name-calling during a victory lap that the intended loser turns the table. and me but it would be wildly inaccurate when compared to you and me. Facts like that didn’t bother a Times columnist Roger Cohen, whose Sept. 6 piece on the Stanford work, titled, “The Organic Fable,” labeled all organic food as a “fad.” He went on to say organic food is “premium branding rather than science,” and likened its usually higher price to parents paying tuition “to send (their) child to private school.” “It is a class-driven decision,” Cohen wrote, “that demonstrates how much you love your offspring but whose overall impact on society is debatable.” Not so. Parents pay extra for both private schools and good food because they believe — even have proof — that the investment carries value. Both Harvard and organic growers count on people making informed choices that favor their product, be it Ivy League or organic spinach. Besides, if Cohen’s reasoning has merit, everyone should drive $18,000 Ford Focuses rather than $50,000 Cadillac XTSs or $60,000 Range Rovers. After all, cars are cars and choice — or class — should play no role, right? But that’s not how it works in a free society and free market. As the columnist, himself, noted, “In 2010 … organic food and drink sales totaled $26.7 billion in the United States, or about 4 percent of the overall market.” So choice, class, has its place. While “organiacs,” the name Cohen

gave organic supporters, went after him with forks and knives, medical doctors, nutritionists and ag economists — the latter two were not on the Stanford panel that compiled the meta-analysis — responded, also. One was Chuck Benbrook, research professor at Washington State University’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources, who says he “may be the only person on the planet that actually read more than 200 of the reports used by Stanford.” After reading the Stanford paper, Benbrook labeled it either “a very shallow, questionable analysis” or a “naïve, sloppy job … cleverly or intentionally designed to raise questions where none existed” about organic production and food. Cohen responded to the criticisms by Benbrook and others with another column Sept. 27 that, to his credit, listed “several good points made by my critics.” Soon, however, he returned to taking pot-shots at the “organic bourgeoisie, with their babies in reusable cotton diapers … inveighing against genetically modified food.” Wow, now that’s clever name-calling. What it isn’t, however, is science. So score one for the bourgeoisie and the farmers and ranchers who know they’re right.

OPINION

incumbent upon us to maintain a balance between the two throughout the state. Doug Peterson Minnesota Farmers Union President Madison, Minn.

THE LAND, OCTOBER 19, 2012

To the Editor: Farmers in Minnesota for many years have experienced financial loss and frustration because of depredation by gray wolves — wolves have preyed on livestock and pets on Minnesota farms which has compromised farmers — affecting their livestock and livelihood. In 2011, the gray wolf was de-listed from the Endangered Species Act, and in response to public input from farmers, rural folks and other impacted citizens, the legislature established a season and regulations for the taking of the gray wolves, which is scheduled to begin Nov. 3. Two opposition groups filed a lawsuit seeking to stop a Minnesota wolf hunting and trapping season, and asking for the wolf hunting season to be put on hold until the Minnesota Court of Appeals makes a decision. Minnesota Farmers Union members strongly support a wolf hunting season, and our policy calls for a dedicated hunting season for the gray wolf — livestock predation and wolf sightings are on the rise. The hunt requires a fee which goes toward a wolf management program. Not all predation to farm animals is reported, and a scientifically managed wolf population is critical to our state. As livestock predation claims increase, the state of Minnesota indemnifies farms for their losses, and hunting fees go to cover those losses. Minnesota has paid out a record amount of over $154,000 to farmers

Wayne raised hogs with his dad in a renovated older barn and hog house, but 1979 marked the building of their first farrowing/ nursery facility and a finishing setup. “I helped my dad with his hog operation, which at that time was on dirt. Even my first farrowing of our own sow herd was at my dad’s place but now everything is produced on slats,” Wayne said. “And it has been a major transformation.” He said that people think that pigs on dirt have all that freedom and a good life, but the reality is that it’s much harder to control flies, rodents, mud, etc. “So as we could afford it we gradually moved more of our total hog operation inside on slats,” Wayne said. “We started on partial slats in our 1979 finishing house and could see immediate benefits.

Much more important is presenting their 240-acre farm, hog production facilities and neatly landscaped and artistically decorated farmstead as an entity of rural pride. “Stewardship is a commitment that comes along with farming,” Wayne said. “The public holds us accountable to be good stewards, especially in this day and age of anti-livestock activists, hidden cameras, etc. We don’t want to be just another name on that abstract. For us it is a blessing and privilege to have a farm like this. We want to leave a legacy.”

2003 rolled along and we got into our major expansion, we decided to go all slats. “We’ve been pleased with the comfort of the pigs, the cleanliness of the pigs, the ability to take care of individual pigs as needed, and, of course, the much greater efficiency and ease of our daily chores also.” Their expanded operation now includes a 4,400head nursery and four 1,100-head finishing barns. Pigs are grown on contract for Mill Farm, a sow operation principally owned by Greg and Paul Boerboom of Marshall, Minn. The Dahls receive six groups (about 4,400 pigs per group) of 21-day-old “freshly weaned” nursery pigs a year from Mill Farm. From snout to tail Caretaking of the nursery pigs is Laura’s responsibility. Trained as a medical lab technician and with experience as a hospital physical therapy aide, Laura has some solid qualifications to help get these “baby” pigs off to a good start. “I love it,” she said. “These little rascals are always fun to watch.” Laura carefully notes their weights. Each batch has a few “tail-enders” so she sorts them into their own pen, providing a special 4- by 6-foot mat placed over the slats by their feeders. “Three times a day I put some of the same starter ration on this mat,” said Laura, “so if they’re not yet ready to nibble at the feeders they can feed off this mat.” She sorts and groups by size and makes certain they find the nipple waterers. Pigs in that “hospital pen” get even closer attention. “I look at every pig, from snout to tail, every day. Treat your pigs well and they treat us well,” she said. At 40 to 60 pounds, pigs move to finishing barns. Marketing is at about 280 pounds.

Lack of ‘hog barn odor’ noticeable to farm visitors Using Oxy Blast for treating nursery water, Wayne said it reduces manure pit odors because the oxygenated water that drips from the nipple waterers produces an aerobic environment in the pit below the slatted floors. Also new is a simple in-line structured water filter device only about 12-inches long. “It’s basically glass marbles that water passes through,” he said, “and the claim is that this process

energizes the water which in turn means better water utilization within the pigs’ system.” Cautious about claiming scientific results, Wayne said only that “between the Oxy Blast system and these structured water filters we’re seeing our young pigs get off to a much better start.” See DAHLS, pg. 10A

DAHLS, from pg. 8A Manure from the 8-foot-deep pits is tested, with application rates calibrated to meet the fertilizer needs for the next year’s crop. A 10,000-gallon tanker equipped with a flow meter applies the manure with GPS precision in soybean stubble. The Dahls use a manure additive to help stabilize the nitrogen in the fall-applied manure. The feed additive, phytase, is used to reduce the amount of phosphorous in the manure. This enables them to boost manure application rates by up to 20 percent without building phosphorous in the soil. Nothing gets ignored in a modern swine operation. Pig comfort is first and foremost in their operation. That includes the adoption of a few “technological wrinkles” still unfolding in much of the swine industry. Wayne doesn’t mind being at the front end of new technologies. “He’s always looking at technology ideas,” Laura chuckled. Wayne agreed. “We’ve come a long way in pork production and so new ideas that might help us to do a better job catch my attention.” For instance, he was one of the first in the nation to install Electronic Particular Ionization technology. Designed by Baumgartner Environics of Olivia, Minn., the EPI air system discharges literally millions of negatively charged ions into the air space every second. These negative ions attract dust particles, polarizing them to act like magnets and fastening to whatever surface they touch first. “We are seeing lower dust levels and that’s appreciated by the pigs and the workers in the buildings. It also means fewer odor-carrying dust particles in the air,” Wayne said. That lack of “hog barn odor” is noticeable to visitors. Water conservation, too Water meters are also part of technology at their farm. “Being aware of water quality is a starting point in conservation farming, even as it pertains to your livestock. With these meters we are constantly monitoring our water. So if we notice any slowdown in water consumption that’s a good indicator to take a closer look at the animals,” Wayne said. Nipples are the traditional water source for most swine operations, including the Dahls, but they’ve added something new in their nursery. This new tool for better water consumption is called a fresh water trough. “What we have here is a water pan at floor level with water level controlled by a bladder that maintains constant water level,” Wayne said. “When you get 12- to 13-pound, 3-week-old pigs newly weaned from their mothers, the first thing they want is a drink of water, but these metal nipple waters are totally new to them. However they can see water in these pans and very quickly are drinking from them.” He has been told these pans reduce water waste 20 to 30 percent.

Farm’s ‘petting zoo’ welcomes kids, classroom visits

DAHLS, from pg. 9A He pointed out, however, there are so many variables in each group of pigs that it’s difficult to pinpoint the success. Their system revolves around 9 weeks for isoweans in the nursery facility and 18 weeks in the finishing barns. After each nine-week nursery timeframe, the entire structure gets pressure washed with hotwater cleaning “so it pretty much looks and smells like the inside of a car wash.” The same process happens after each cleanout of the finishing barns. A farm for all ages The sparkly clean appearance of their hog operation is now typical industry-wide of America’s pork producers, Wayne said. But it’s not all high-tech that drives the Dahls’ environmental stewardship. Much goes to simple things like keeping their farmstead comfortably clean and tremendously fun for their own grandchildren, neighboring kids, even classes from local schools for a look at Laura’s incredible “petting

children. My grandmother used to love her chickens. I grew to cherish her love for chickens. I even decorate my kitchen with chicken art work. Grandparents love to bring their little grandchildren to our house.” Wayne and his brother David team up to grow 1,800 acres of crops in a corn-soybean rotation. The Dahls’ youngest son, Jordan, is an integral farming partner, and a neighboring young farmer, Tanner Winge, is also a valuable part of their swine enterprise. “He’s just an exceptional young guy. I can’t say enough about his animal husbandry skills,” Wayne said.

The Dahl family includes Tanya, 34; Tera, 31; Terese Viessman, 29, with husband, Nate, and children Skylar, Walker and Tucker; Jarrett, 27 and Jordan, 25, with wife, Ashley, and, son Lincoln. Both sons have become skilled chain saw sculpturing talents, with Jarrett named grand champion in the 2012 Alaska Chain Saw Carving show. “It’s such a joy to wake up each morning on this farm,” Wayne said. “We want the next generation, and the next generation and the next generation, to be able to experience the same joys that Laura and I experience every day. To me it’s easy to be close to God when you work so closely with nature.” ❖

ADM’s Greg Mills: Record year for client payouts By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Could this be a $20 billion year for crop insurance payments? That certainly wouldn’t surprise Greg Mills, president of Archer Daniel Midlands Crop Risk Services. “Yes, this will be a record year for client payouts,” said Mills, who quoted a projected $20 billion to $30 billion in crop indemnity payments for Crop Year 2012. He said University of Illinois business specialists are using the same range of damage claims. Q: How does this year’s disaster impact the future of crop insurance? Could it ever be self-sustaining if the farm bill doesn’t provide federal payments as part of the overall cost of crop insurance? Mills: The experience of crop insurance companies is that it cannot be a self-sustaining program. The government subsidy is needed simply to keep the cost affordable for the American farmer. When the government ‘cost-sharing’ finally ramped up to 60 to 65 percent premium level, farmer participation jumped dramatically from less than 50 percent of crop acres insured to today’s level of about 83 percent of all crop acres in America being insured. In the current environment the crop insurance program has been relatively neutral because there has been enough gain in new participants to offset the additional expenses. Q: Who shares in the benefits of federal crop insurance? Mills: The benefits accrue not just to the insurance companies and their policy holders but to the entire

agricultural community. This year without crop insurance we would be ramping up a direct payment program to producers because banks would be frozen up, Farm & Fleet stores and other farm supply outlets would be boarding up because there wouldn’t be assurance of a cash flow that crop insurance provides. The stakeholders of crop insurance are broad — your local bank, your seed dealers, the chemical outlets, your farm equipment dealer, even your retail stores. Q: So what language needs to be included in the next farm bill to maintain this protective umbrella over agriculture? Mills: I don’t have an answer for that. I was in the grain industry for 27 years before getting into ADM’s Crop Insurance Division. I simply maintain that crop insurance is the key safety net for the American farmer today. And the significance is that it’s important for all of rural American, not just the farmer. Q: How many crop insurance companies exist? How does ADM Crop Risk Services rank? Mills: There are 16 crop insurance companies. ADM just got involved in 2009. We are about a 3 percent market share today. Q: Why did ADM make the move into crop insurance? Mills: For ADM everything starts with production agriculture. We saw crop insurance as a way to support the American farmer and assist him in risk management and risk mitigation. And that’s particularly important today when you look at the production costs of growing an acre of corn or any other crop. The risks for the American farmer today are substantially higher than 10 years ago. What we want is a healthy farming community to help sustain the businesses that have

built this farming community. Q: So how do you market ADM Crop Risk Services? Mills: We market through already existing crop insurance agencies. We promote the fact that we are the only international grain company that is in crop insurance. We’re the only crop insurance company that can discuss with you day-by-day, even hour-by-hour, grain markets locally, nationally and internationally. The same for weather trends with an intimate knowledge from over 300 asset locations in farming communities across America. And that additional input we feel is even greater value to the farmer than just the crop insurance policy. Showing a farmer how the markets relate to his crop insurance policy is key to our growth. We’re four times larger than we were three years ago. Q: Without federal subsidies, would premiums be ‘affordable’ for most farmers? Mills: Premiums would have to be substantially higher. Would farmers participate? History has suggested the answer would be ‘no.’ As we look at crop insurance both in America and other countries the reality is that is has to be government subsidized to make it work. Q: Is crop insurance now working for farmers around the world? Mills: From ADM’s perspective, our crop insurance is basically just in North America. But other countries are looking at our U.S. crop insurance programs and wanting to imitate our model. And that of course is why passage of a new USDA farm bill is so important to simply substantiate our agricultural industry. After the Russian drought of 2010 even their government is searching for ways to better protect the financial stability of their farmers; the Chinese are looking at our crop insurance; not yet government involvement in crop insurance in Brazil but lots of discussion about generating government support; India and the Philippines are looking; so too is Africa. Globally, officials see crop insurance as the major way to stabilize farm risk so that you can expand food supply. Strange, but other countries are looking at us to see how to emulate the success here in America while we’re now looking for ways to cut the program. ❖

What happens now that the farm bill has expired? export promotion programs administered by the USDA, including the Foreign Market Development program and the Market Access Program. They also provide funding for international food assistance, including through P.L. 480 (the Food for Peace Program). Unfortunately, authorization for FMD lapsed on Sept. 30 and MAP’s authorization will expire at the end of December. These programs are critically important in supporting farm exports and building foreign markets. If they are not reauthorized, the U.S. will lose important markets that ASA and other farm organizations have worked to establish for over 50 years. Q: Should school lunch and other

‘food aid’ provisions continue as the major impact of the next farm bill? Censky: The school lunch program, the food stamp program or “SNAP”, and other nutrition programs comprise 80 percent of spending under the farm bill. They have been integral to passing this omnibus legislation, since a substantial majority of House members do not represent rural districts, and their support is based on nutrition program benefits to their constituents. While some in the House have argued in favor of splitting nutrition and farm programs into separate bills, we believe that this would only make passing agriculture legislation that much harder. ❖

rent House and Senate bills. It is not clear what the impact will be on farm programs, crop insurance, conservation programs, export promotion, research, etc. Q: Should Federal Crop Insurance continue as the major consideration in terms of financial protection for American farmers? Censky: Absolutely yes! ASA strongly supports the current crop insurance program as the most important risk management tool and the foundation of the farm income safety net.ASA and others successfully opposed amending or reducing funding for crop insurance in both the House and Senate farm bills. ASA also supported authorization of the Supplemental Coverage Option under which producers would be able to purchase county-level insurance above what they pay to insure production on their individual farms. Protecting crop insurance will become more difficult as CBO increases the projected cost of the program due to this year’s higher prices — thereby making it a bigger target for budget cuts. But protecting crop insurance as a risk management tool for producers will remain ASA’s highest priority in the lame duck session and beyond. Q: What kind of language relating to renewable energy should be included in the next farm bill? Censky: Energy programs in the 2008 farm bill have no baseline funding beyond 2012, which represents a significant challenge to extending these programs and building on the benefits they have provided in creating markets for soybeans and other crops. Given funding realities, ASA believes that funding for energy programs should be targeted toward two small but important programs — the Biodiesel Education Program and the Biobased Market Program. The Biodiesel Education Program received mandatory funding totaling $5 million. ASA supports reauthorization and funding for this program at the $1 million per year level. The Biobased Market Program received mandatory funding totaling $9 million. ASA supports increased funding for USDA to promote the BioPreferred and voluntary biobased labeling programs. Q: Should legislation pertaining to agricultural trade be part of the farm bill? Censky: Yes, very definitely. Farm bills historically have included authorization and funding for agriculture

THE LAND, OCTOBER 19, 2012

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The current farm bill quietly expired Sept. 30. In view of this failure by Congress I posed some questions to Steve Censky, CEO of Steve Censky the American Soybean Association. Below is his Oct. 1 response. “ASA is deeply disappointed that the House did not consider the farm bill before recessing before the elections. ASA and 90 other ag-related organizations were part of a ‘Farm Bill Now’ coalition that had urged the House leadership to take the bill passed by the House ag committee in July to the House floor before adjourning for the elections. Since no action was taken, we are calling on Congress to finish a new farm bill during the upcoming lame duck session in November and December. While some House leaders have expressed support for a oneyear extension of the 2008 farm bill, others have stated that budget cuts and a revised budget baseline by the Congressional Budget Office would make it impossible to write a new bill similar to the versions approved this year by the Senate as well as the House committee.” Q: If a one-year extension seems the best alternative by this Congress, what is the likely action and content if/when a new farm bill is drafted after Congress reconvenes in January? Censky: The longer Congress delays in passing a new farm bill, the more complicated things are likely to get. If the lame duck session approves an extension, funding for a new farm bill in 2013 could be reduced in several ways. Congress may not be willing to pass an extension without including some of the cuts already made in the House and Senate bills. These include elimination of Direct Payments, consolidation of conservation programs and a reduction in funding for SNAP (food stamps). The Congressional Budget Office would take these cuts into account in its next budget baseline, due out by March 2013, and reduce the amounts of funds available to write a new farm bill. In addition, Congress and the next administration will need to resolve the pending sequestration of $1.2 trillion in defense and non-defense spending, scheduled to take effect in January. While this process may be postponed during lame duck, it could eventually require deeper cuts in agriculture spending. So funding for the next farm bill could be substantially less than the level available for writing the cur-

It also put the spotlight on the countries Eustice was visiting and the concerns they have about healthy foods in their own food chain. Moon was interviewed at the recent retirement event held to honor Eustice. ❖

Be sure to spread a little ‘dust’ to those around you Mike walked through the back door after a full day of harvesting soybeans and said, “There’s dust in my hair, dust in my eyes, dust up my ...” “I get the picture,” I said. I experienced his reality on Friday night when I sat in the combine’s buddy seat. All we needed was Christmas music and a few roasted chestnuts and you would’ve thought we were driving to Grandma’s house in a snowstorm.

“There’s highline poles somewhere around here,” Mike said. He’d stop the combine, wait for the dust to clear for needed visibility, and then crawl forward again. We lamented for the generation of farmers who worked in these conditions without a cab. Thankfully, Mike avoided the poles. Too bad the same thing couldn’t be said of our mailbox, but that’s a different story.

Unless you sell cleaning products, it’s difficult to find things to be thankful for about dust. It coats vehicles and furniture, ignites allergies and triggers asthma. In general, it’s a nuisance. As an object lesson, it’s an amazing visual of what it means to be a “dusty disciple.” THE BACK PORCH There is an old Jewish proverb that talks about a By Lenae Bulthuis relationship between children and their rabbi or teacher. When the teacher walks and his sandals kick up the road’s dust, the students should want to be so close to the teacher that they get dusty. Even in Jesus’ day it was understood that faith was more often caught than taught. Our greatest influence on others comes not through our lips, but through our lives. Whether it’s our children or grandchildren, those we mentor, teach, coach, or encourage, we know a lesson has landed in their hearts and Even in Jesus’ day minds when they get dusty and we see it was understood our positive influthat faith was ence coating their more often caught words, actions and than taught. Our lives. That’s beautigreatest influence ful dust indeed.

In his book, “The not through our Invested Life — making lips, but through disciples of all nations our lives. one person at a time,” Joel Rosenberg says that every person who follows Jesus should be able to answer two simple questions: “Who is investing in me?” And, “Whom am I investing in?”

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Parents, teachers, grandparents and youth volunteers have no problem telling you who they’re investing in. Depending on their generation or love-hate relationship with technology, they’ll pull out their photo albums or smart phones and show you pictures of those kiddos. There’s great pride, joy and intentionality in investing in children who are within their sphere of influence. As independent adults, you may question who’s investing in you. Initially the thought feels like it’s something we should outgrow; yet the reality is, whether we’re aware of it or not, that all of us are influenced and we are influencers. We are led and we lead. The company we keep influences our character.

cream-based holiday type items. Butter orders are strong for both retail and food service. Butter export assistance continues to be extended through the Cooperatives Working Together program which accepted five requests for export assistance this week to sell 1.1 million pounds of cheese and 4,409 pounds of anhydrous milk fat to customers in Asia and Central America. The product will be delivered through April 2013 and raised the CWT’s 2012 cheese exports to 96.9 million pounds, 58.3 million of butter and 127,868 pounds of anhydrous milkfat to 34 countries. September was the CWT’s busiest month ever when measured by the volume of products for which it awarded bonuses. While the 78 bids received weren’t as high as previous months, the volume of cheese exported reached a record 16.784 million pounds. A total of 11 butter bids added 1.631 million pounds to the total product exports assisted in September, which all together was the equivalent of 190.5 million pounds of milk moved offshore, the CWT said. ■ Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk lost 6 cents on the week, slipping to $1.60, while the Extra Grade held at $1.6350. AMS powder averaged $1.4409, up 0.1 cent, and dry whey averaged 61.1 cents, up 0.4 cent. Milk production is increasing, to varying degrees, across most regions of the nation, according to the USDA’s weekly update. Eastern milk production is increasing with import loads needed in the Southeast and Florida to meet Class I demand. Manufacturing milk supplies in the Eastern region remain tight. Midwest milk haulers and handlers report that volumes of farm milk pickups are varied. California milk output is steady with processing plants running on lighterthan-projected schedules as supplies lag behind year-ago levels. The Pacific Northwest, Utah and Idaho show milk production benefiting from the cool fall weather and increasing along the seasonal trend. California’s November Class I milk price was announced this week at $23.17/cwt. for the North and $23.44 for the South. Both are up $2.62 from October, and $2.91 and $2.90, respectively, above a year ago, and equate to $1.99 and $2.02 per gallon respectively. The 2012 Northern price average now

MIELKE, from pg. 20A unchanged on the week and 41 cents above a year ago when they tumbled 7 1/2 cents to $1.69. The barrels closed the second Friday of October at $2.06, also unchanged on the week and 37 cents above a year ago. Three cars of block and none of barrel were sold on the week. The U.S. average, Agricultural Marketing Service-surveyed, block price jumped 6.8 cents, to $1.9586, while the barrels averaged $1.9963, up 9 cents. Cheese production while above yearago levels, is slowing, according to the USDA’s Dairy Market News. Tight milk supplies in the West have slowed cheese making in the region. Cheese makers would like to expand production, but sourcing the milk is becoming more of an issue, while the Central region has remained active in cheese production, taking advantage of rebounding milk volumes after the hot summer. Retail cheese demand is good with food service accounts adding to their orders. Specialty cheese sales for holiday promotions are also good. Export demand has slowed as prices are higher than most international markets. Less than one-third of U.S. cheese establishes federal order Class III and California’s 4b milk price, according to the Daily Dairy Report’s Sara Dorland in the Oct. 5 “Daily Dairy Discussion” which is a free download at the DDR website. The Oct. 5 DDR pointed out that Cheddar production as a percentage of American cheese production has been declining since 2004 and manufacturers are increasingly replacing Cheddar with higher-moisture, lower-cost Monterey Jack. Dorland also discusses if milk pricing formulas should be re-examined. ■ Cash butter reversed gears following last week’s surprising 9-cent plunge and closed Friday at $1.93, up 7 cents on the week and 9 1/2-cents above a year ago. Thirteen cars sold on the week. AMS butter averaged $1.9070, up 2.9 cents. Churning schedules across the country are mixed, depending on cream availability, the USDA said. Butter producers are preparing for upcoming holiday needs and, in some regions, indicate that cream supplies for their needs are tightening as some Class II operations increase production of

MIELKE, from pg. 21A dollar and military outlets grew 8.3 percent for the 13 weeks ending Sept. 9, when compared to the same period in 2011, according to RI/Symphony, a market research firm. July USDA statistics showed an 8.6 percent sales volume increase across all channels selling flavored milk. ■ Looking “back to the futures,” the last half 2012 federal order Class III milk prices were averaging $16.53 on June 8, $17.49 on July 6, and $18.80 on Aug. 3. Looking at the announced Class IIIs plus the remaining months of 2012, it averaged $18.69 on Sept. 7, $18.98 on Sept. 14, $19.13 on Sept. 21, $19.15 on Sept. 28, $19.27 on Oct. 5, and was trading around $19.38 late-morning Oct. 12. Ron O’Brien, risk management consultant at INTL FCStone, wrote in his Oct. 12 eDairy Insider Opening Bell, “the Class III market is running into resistance,” but “dairy bankruptcies and cow slaughter support milk prices.” FCStone dairy economist Bill Brooks said, “weekly cow slaughter in the region that includes California has been running at double-digit percentage gains for seven weeks, but seeing lower numbers of cows in production is taking time.” The USDA will update those numbers in its Oct. 19 September Milk Production report. ■ In dairy politics, National Milk Producers Federation CEO Jerry Kozak said in Friday’s DairyLine that he still believes Congress will pass a new farm bill before the end of the year. He criticized an alternative by Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and David Scott, D-Ga., which would remove the dairy title’s supply management provision. “But worse,” Kozak said, “they put in an amendment that would have capped production at 80 percent so if you don’t like supply management why would you even support the Goodlatte-Scott amendment because it says you have to cap your production for five years and no growth is covered. That’s the opposite of what we have in the Dairy Security Act.” The NMPF also testified at a hearing last month regarding the addition of Canada to the TransPacific Partnership negotiations. At the hearing, held by the office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the NMPF said that the exclusion of dairy from the U.S.Canada portion of the North American Free Trade Agreement was a major missed opportunity and needs be rectified now through the TPP process. In addition to opening access to the Canadian market by elimination of its dairy tariffs, the NMPF also stressed the importance of ensuring that non-tariff barriers do not thwart U.S. access, as had been seen in the past.

Cattle market turns sluggish

Volatility still dominates markets

The following market analysis is for the week ending Oct. 12. CORN — Markets were quiet prior to the Oct. 11 U.S. Department of Agriculture report with most traders positioned for a bearish report. Once again, the USDA didn’t disappoint us in its ability to release a surprise set of numbers. While the focus going into the report was for a steady yield number and lower exports, it was unprepared for the size of the drop in yield. The acreage numbers were tweaked as well. By the numbers, planted acres were upped 500,000 to 96.9 million PHYLLIS NYSTROM Country Hedging acres; harvested acres rose St. Paul 300,000 to 87.7 million acres; yield fell 0.8 bushels per acre from 122.8 to 122.0 bu./acre when the average expectation was for a nearly unchanged yield of 122.7 bu./acre. The percent of harvested/planted acres is still 90.8 percent. In drought/sub-trendline years, this percent normally runs less than 90 percent. Will we see a change in harvested acres on the report? Production fell to 10.706 billion bushels, down 21 million bushels from the September report and compared to the 10.598 estimate. Since 1990, in the seven years where corn production was lowered from the September to October reports, production fell further from the October to the January final report. Combined with the smaller carry-in from the Sept. 1 Grain Stocks report, total supply is down 214 million bushels from the September USDA monthly report. On the usage side, exports were cut 100 million bushels for a resulting bullish 619 million bushel carryout versus 733 million on the last USDA release. This is the lowest carryout for an October report in

With the change of seasons not only has the weather begun to change, but so has the livestock markets. As one has struggled — that being the hog market — the other — being the cattle market — has relished in strength. It now appears the roles are reversing and the hog market is finding the strength while the cattle market struggles to stay steady. The reason the cattle market has turned sluggish is the boxed beef price which, in comparison to other competitive meats, is high. Even though slaughter numbers are down, weights of JOE TEALE cattle continue to rise, creating Broker enough meat to offset the decline Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. in numbers. With the economy still retracting, the beef cutout has found that above $190 per hundredweight, beef movement slows, reflecting a reluctance from retailers to increase purchases. The rallies in the futures market have recently been led by commodity funds moving to the long side, rather than good commercial buying. This would indicate that until we reach closer parity between the beef market and competitive meats, the cattle market will continue to struggle. This is not to say that the cattle market cannot improve, but it will be a slow advance as numbers decrease until other meats get more in line with the beef market. The key word for the cattle market at this time would be demand, and not supply. If demand expands, the cattle market will respond with higher prices. But if demand continues to be weak, the cattle market will continue to struggle. Producers should continue to monitor the market and protect inventories when necessary.

See TEALE, pg. 26A

As the “flash harvest” is wrapping up, price volatility remains the dominant feature in the marketplace. Yield estimates continue to improve as the harvest has moved to the northern Corn Belt. The question on the trade’s mind is, “have high prices taken care of high prices?” Corn has been pressured for weeks by concerns that high prices have curbed demand for the grain, after front-month futures reached all-time highs in August. Those concerns continue, as export demand remains weak overall, and weekly U.S. ethanol production fell to the lowest level since the Energy Information TOM NEHER Administration started reporting AgStar VP & Team the data two years ago. The high Leader — Grain Industry Rochester, Minn. prices appear to be rationing demand for corn and oil seeds. This will be an interesting marketing year, with the inverted prices working to pull grain into the markets rather than storage bins. Yet there has been a mad scramble to capture bushels to store for next summer’s perceived tightness of supply. Inverted markets are the most difficult to merchandize in because one is not paid to store the grain through higher prices being offered for future delivery. The conventional practice in an inverted market would be to sell the grain, capture the margins and get ready for next year. This year many seem to be willing to assume the storage risk with the hopes of being able to leverage the market next summer. If there is another drought next year they will look like heroes and if the rains come and crops look great they will be looking at lower prices. Perspective is difficult to maintain during these times. So often we tend to get caught up in our own See NEHER, pg. 26A

Beans a demand market, domestically and export NYSTROM, from pg. 25A 35 years. The pre-report carryout estimate was 645 million. Brazil’s exports were raised 1 million metric ton to 16 mmt. This makes sense with Brazilian corn headed to the southeast United States and sorghum to the West Coast. World carryout decreased to 117.3 mmt from 124.0 mmt last month and versus 131.5 mmt last year. If realized, this would be the smallest world ending stocks since 2006-07. December corn climbed 36 1/2 cents with an increase of 50,000 contracts or 4 percent in open interest off the resulting trade. Cash markets began to show some life during the week as harvest quickly approaches its final stage. Corn trains are moving from the western Corn Belt into the eastern Corn Belt and southern feedlots to meet demand. Spreads in the futures market narrowed to attract bushels into the pipeline, especially in lower yielding areas. States showing declines in yield this month were Illinois at 98 bu./acre, Ohio at 123, Wisconsin 127, Nebraska 142 and South Dakota 94 bu./acre. Iowa’s yield was left unchanged at 140 bu./acre and Indiana at 100 bu./acre. Showing increases were Minnesota at 168 bu./acre (versus 156 last year) and North Dakota 115 bu./acre (versus 105 last year). The narrowing of spreads and better basis levels usually are precursors to higher prices to ration demand. OUTLOOK: Prior to this week’s action, it was thought we had already set the harvest low, this week’s releases supported that opinion. But the inability of December corn to penetrate $7.75 confirms we are still in a trading range and volatility has not disappeared. Rumors in the market that Argentine corn had been sold into the United States cut post-report gains significantly. Whether this is rumor or indeed fact puts everyone on edge, but we need some imports to make the balance sheet work. December corn’s range now expands to $8 to $8.20 per bushel on the upper end with support near $7.30 per bushel. December corn was 4 3/4 cents higher for the week, settling at $7.52 3/4 per bushel.

SOYBEANS — This month’s bean crop report was reluctantly neutral/friendly. A quick rundown of the numbers included a 1.1 million acre increase for both planted and harvested acreage; yield rose 2.5 bu./acre to 37.8 bu./acre compared to the 37.0 estimate and 35.3 last month; production at 2.86 billion bushels versus 2.77 billion estimated and 2.634 billion last month; thanks to raising last year’s crop, total supply is up 265 million bushels from the last report. The increase in yield is the second largest ever from the September to October reports. States showing increases were Ohio at 43 bu./acre, Indiana 41, Illinois 39, Wisconsin 39, Iowa 43, Minnesota 43, North Dakota 34 and Nebraska 41 bu./acre. Crush increased 40 million and exports jumped 210 million bushels. This year 64 percent of samples were processed versus 32 percent last year. This should make this year’s yield forecast closer to what the final yield will be. The export projection remains under last year’s final figure; it will not be unexpected to see exports higher on the next report. U.S. ending stocks only rose 15 million to 130 million bushels as compared to the estimate for 134 million bushels as demand sops up most of the larger supply. Brazil’s production of 81 mmt and Argentina’s of 55 mmt were both left unchanged. China’s import forecast was increased from 59.5 mmt to 61.0 mmt. World

ending stocks were up from 53.1 mmt to 57.6 mmt. Weekly export sales were near estimates at 18.4 million bushels, but the lowest of the current marketing year. However, 69.5 percent of the latest export forecast for the year is already on the books. Meal sales were good at 216,400 mt, bringing total commitments to 46 percent ahead of last year. In addition, 478,000 mt of old crop meal sales were rolled forward into this marketing year. China sold only 225,000 mt of the 400,000 mt of reserve beans they offered this week. Reportedly, they are scaling up offer prices based on when the beans went into the reserve. This could well mean additional exports needed from the United States. OUTLOOK: Soybeans are a demand market, both domestically and on the export side. The seasonal higher trend for soybeans through Oct. 20 may be slow to develop as we’ve been sideways $15.04 to $15.74 range. A sizable $15 to $16.50 trading range may be expected short-term. South America needs to have near ideal crop conditions and that will be where attention will be focused. For the week, November soybeans were down 29 cents at $15.22 1/2 per bushel.

TEALE, from pg. 25A

product movement has been good because of the comparative lower price of pork versus beef, chicken and turkey. Cold storage pork inventories are large and will pose a problem until these inventories are whittled down. This will likely slow the ascent in hog prices in the weeks ahead. Looking forward it is quite likely that the fall in prices in the latter part of summer and the high feed costs have reduced the hog herd to some degree. Therefore, optimism into next year will help keep a floor under the market for the next few months. Producers should remain aware of current market conditions and protect inventories when warranted. ❖

MARKETING

Price lag, feed costs drop herd The hog market has certainly turned the corner and has begun to recover after a long-term downtrend. Hog numbers have decreased enough that packers have been more aggressive in bidding for live inventory to maintain a good slaughter. This because margins have been positive for the packer which means the packer wants to maintain good margins while they are still available. Pork cutouts have improved over the past month and this appears to be a direct reflection of the disparity between pork and its competitive meats. Pork

worries and concerns; forgetting how blessed our lives have become. All it takes is to see pictures of drought-stressed crops to remind us that many things are out of our control. It is during times like this that we must take inventory of what are really the most important elements in our lives. During the next several weeks give thanks for the strength and courage provided to till the soil and provide food for a hungry world. It is an honor to be a steward of the great creation. As the fruits of our labors, worries and prayers are gathered; it is a good time to start planning for next year. The markets have a job to do this fall and winter. It will be the driving force in providing guidance into the number of corn, soybean and wheat acres that are planted next year.

A sharp pencil and a well-charged calculator will need to be used as we analyze and evaluate the most profitable production alternatives. Risk management tools will be of paramount importance in this coming year as volatility and pricing opportunities will abound. With commodity prices and production costs rising, more money will flow through our bank accounts. Our challenge will continue to be centered on how much of that flow we can keep in our operations. Solid plans that are made during this time of the year can help to take some of the emotion out of our lives as we move into another year. Our perspective leads to emotion and this impacts our quality of life. Let us all remember that we are blessed to live in a land of freedom and opportunity. With this freedom, let us remember to take the opportunity to prepare to make the most out of our blessings. ❖


Study: Waiving RFS could increase feed costs for livestock, poultry producers

Waiving the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2013 could actually result in higher net feeding costs for livestock and poultry producers, according to a new analysis conducted by Cardno-ENTRIX and commissioned by the Renewable Fuels Association. The study found that if a waiver of the RFS did reduce biofuel output, trivial corn price reductions would be partially or fully offset by increased prices for other feed ingredients like distillers grains and soybean meal. Distillers grains, corn gluten feed and corn gluten meal are co-products of ethanol production that are fed to livestock and poultry across the country. Every bushel of corn processed by an ethanol plant produces 2.7 to 2.8 gallons of ethanol and approximately 16 to 17 pounds of animal feed. The U.S. ethanol industry produced some 40 million to 42 million tons of animal feed in 2011, including 37 million to 38 million tons of distillers grains. Additionally, increased production of biodiesel from soybean oil has facilitated growth in soybean meal production in recent years. Soybean meal is a valuable source of protein for livestock and poultry worldwide; it is produced as a co-product of soybean oil. Thus, increased demand for soybean oil drives increased production of, and lower prices for, soybean meal. Obviously, if a waiver of the RFS reduced production of ethanol and biodiesel, it would also reduce production of these important animal feed co-products. “When viewed in the context of changes in the prices for other key feed ingredients such as distillers dried grains with solubles and soybean meal, the change in total net feed costs for livestock, dairy and poultry feeders would either increase slightly or decrease by a negligible amount if a waiver was granted,” according to the study, conducted by economist John Urbanchuk. “This is due to the fact that if a waiver reduced biofuel output, it would also reduce the available supply of DDGS and soybean meal, which would naturally lead to higher prices for those key feed ingredients.” The analysis shows that if ethanol and biodiesel production were each reduced 500 million gallons in 2013 under a waiver of the RFS, total feed costs would increase 4.1 percent for dairy, 0.8 percent for layers, 0.5 percent for hogs and 0.2 percent for broilers. For beef cattle, feed costs might fall by just 0.6 percent with a waiver. These results are corroborated directionally by a recent study by the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute at the University of Missouri. FAPRI found a 1.3 percent reduction in ethanol output under a waiver could lead to slightly higher distillers grains and soybean meal prices. According to FAPRI, “lower corn price means lower feed costs for livestock producers, unless offset by slightly higher soybean meal and distillers grains prices.” This article was submitted by the Renewable Fuels Association. ❖

Taking a look at flexible cash leases for next year The continued strength in corn and soybean commodity prices in the past several months, and the resulting projected increase in gross crop income per acre, has caused many landlords to consider significant increases in cash rental rates on rented farm land for 2013. This comes after substantial increases in many rental rates from 2008-12.

Many crop producers are concerned that the favorable crop prices may not last long term, and that the gross income per acre in future years may not be high enough to justify the higher cash rental rates that are being proposed for 2013 and beyond. In addition, crop input costs for seed, fertilizer, chemicals, fuel and crop drying are

Final scenario 2 Actual soybean yield: 56 bu./acre Final crop price: $11/bu. (Local cash price on Oct. 15.) Final crop revenue: $616/acre Flexible revenue amount: $0 (Final crop revenue is lower than base revenue) Landlord’s share: N/A Final cash rental rate: $250/acre (Base cash rental rate is final.)

Just as with crop yields and prices, determining the established cost of production for a crop for the year can be a challenge. Some possibilities would be to use cash flow statements for the year prepared by a farm management adviser, ag lender, or the producer themselves. Again many universities and farm management associations have average cost of production data available. There also probably need to be allowances in a flexible lease to allow for added costs or expenses due to weather or emergencies. There are many other variations to setting up a flexible lease agreement between a landlord and farm operator, including using a base crop revenue compared to a harvest crop revenue, without using cost of production, to determine flexible rental rates (see box at left). The big key, regardless of

Final scenario 3 Actual corn yield: 160 bu./acre Final crop price: $7/bu. (Local cash price on Oct. 15.) Final crop revenue: $1,120/acre Flexible revenue amount: $130 ($1,120 - $990) Landlord’s share: $45.50 ($130 x 0.35) Final cash rental rate: $295.50/acre ($250 + $45.50)

PROGRAMS, from pg. 28A yields should be spelled out in a written land rental agreement that is signed by all parties. With the occurrence of much higher crop input costs in recent years, some flexible cash leases have been modified, and are now based on gross revenue triggers that exceed the cost of production, rather than on crop yield and price triggers. In this type of lease the landlord only receives additional cash rental payments beyond the “base” rent when the final gross revenue per acre (yield x price) exceeds the established cost of production for the year. Typically, the added “flex” rent payment to the landlord would be a set percentage of the added gross revenue per acre above the established cost of production per acre, which is typically about 35 percent for corn, and about 40 percent for soybeans, with a “maximum” rental rate per acre.

Following are simple examples of flexible cash rental lease calculations, based on projected and final crop revenues, for CORN in southern Minnesota. Base rent: $250 per acre Base corn yield: 180 bushels per acre (Crop insurance APH yield) Minimum crop yield: 135 bu./acre (Crop insurance APH yield x 0.75) Base crop price: $5.50 per bushel (Local new crop corn price on April 1.) Base revenue: $990/acre (Base yield x Base crop price) Landlord’s share: 0.35 (35 percent of the difference between final crop revenue and base revenue) Maximum rent: $400/acre (Base rent plus $150/acre)

cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), and the producer will pay the landlord an additional 35 percent of the difference between final gross crop revenue and the base crop revenue for a Revenue Protection crop insurance policy. Soybean example Base revenue: $624/acre (48 bu./acre x $13/bu.) Final Revenue: $720/acre (48 bu./acre x $15/bu.) Final Cash Rent: $283.60/acre ($720/acre - $624/acre = $96/acre x .35 = $33.60/acre + $250/acre = $283.60/acre) • Cash rental contract with a base cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), with no additional provisions; however, the producer decides to give the landlord an additional $25-100 per acre land rent because of excellent crop yields and/or very good commodity prices. Flexible lease resources Iowa State University has some very good resources on flexible cash leases and written cash rental lease contracts, including sample cash rental contracts, which are available on their “Ag Decision Maker” website, which is located at www.extension.iastate.edu/agdm. For additional information on flexible land rental leases, send an e-mail to kent.thiesse@minnstarbank.com. Bottom line Utilizing “flexible cash leases agreements” between farm operators and landlords is a good management strategy as an alternative to extremely high straight cash rental rates. Landlords that are eligible for Social Security also need to pay attention as to what effect certain types of flexible payments, such as receiving a percentage of the grain that they must market, may have on the status of their future Social Security benefits. It is extremely important that all aspects of a flexible land rental lease agreement be spelled out in detail in a written rental contract, which is signed by all parties. Successful “flexible cash lease agreements” have always involved cooperation, trust, and good communication between the farm operator and the landlord.

PROGRAMS, from pg. 29A the flexible lease agreement, is that both the landlord and tenant fully understand the rental agreement and the calculations that are used to determine the final rental rate. It is also very important that flexible lease agreements, as well as all land rental contracts, be finalized with a written agreement. Flexible lease examples There are many examples and variations of “flexible cash rental” contracts and agreements. Following are simple examples of flexible cash rental lease calculations for corn and soybeans in Southern Minnesota. • Cash rental contract with a base cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), plus the farm operator will pay the landlord and additional percentage (ex. 35 percent for corn and 40 percent for soybeans) of the amount that the final crop revenue (ex. final yield x Oct. 15 local price) exceeds the base crop revenue (ex. Crop Ins. APH yield x April 1 new crop local price). (Please see specific crop revenue flexible lease examples in the tables on Page 29A.) • Cash rental contract with a base cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), plus the producer will pay the landlord an additional amount (ex. $30 per acre), if actual yields exceeds the APH crop insurance yield by 10 percent or more (Corn ex. APH of 180 bushels per acre and final yield of 198 bushels per acre or higher). • Cash rental contract with a base cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), plus the producer will pay the landlord an additional amount (ex. $30 per acre), if harvest-time (ex. Oct. 15) local grain price exceeds the base (ex. April 1 local grain price) by 10 percent or more. (Soybean ex. $13 per bushel local price on April 1 and Oct. 15 price of $14.30 per bushel or higher). • Cash rental contract with a base cash rental rate (ex. $250 per acre), plus the landlord will receive 35 percent of the excess bushels for corn yields that exceed 180 bushels per acre, and 40 percent of the excess bushels for soybean yields that exceed 48 bushels per acre. The landlord would be responsible to market their share of the excess bushels. (Final corn yield of 200 bushels per acre would result in landlord receiving 7 bushels of corn (20 bu. x 0.35) to be marketed.) • Cash rental contract with a base

CORNHEADS

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