Letter: Applaud Senate for stepping up for biofuels OPINION

Doug Peterson Minnesota Farmers Union president Madison, Minn.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

To the Editor: Boy, I couldn’t agree with Staff Writer Dick Hagen more that the United States is in a terrible mess (Land Minds, Nov. 30). Unfortunately, too many Americans were duped into voting for President Obama. We should extend the Bush tax cuts (especially for the mega-rich so they can help the rest of us) and eliminate corporate taxes. Also, end the estate tax and taxes on capital gains and dividends so that there will be more money for investments. I also believe that the Social Security program should be turned into private investment accounts so that the stock market will boom. Obamacare should be abolished so we don’t have to pay for those who take advantage of it for nothing. Medicare should be turned over to insurance companies who have done such a good job of holding down the cost of health care. We really don’t need Medicaid. Finally, we should get rid of all the frivolous regulations on business and those environmental regulations that hold back business. If we do all these things, we will be back on the road to prosperity. Dick Waldman Austin, Minn.

These are initiatives that fall in line with Farmers

Union policy, as we continue to fight for a strong and prosperous rural Minnesota.

the military’s and the country’s dependence on foreign oil. The DOD has asked Congress to fund $70 million of this initiative as seed money to build or retrofit refineries to produce advanced biofuels.

THE LAND, DECEMBER 14, 2012

To the Editor: Minnesota Farmers Union policy supports expanding marketplace opportunities for all biofuels, and the U.S. Senate stepped up on national defense and biofuels when they passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 that allows for the Department of Defense to use advanced alternative fuels in order to reduce foreign oil reliance, which will enhance national security and move the DOD toward commercialization of advanced biofuels produced in the United States. We applaud the Senate for overturning language in the bill that blocked the DOD’s effort to become more energy independent. As the largest user of energy and fuels in the nation, the Defense Department can drive production, and can drive down the cost of producing biofuels through its investments. This defense policy benefits the country and farmers because farmers are the original source of green energy and farmers will drive renewable, home-grown fuel for national defense. The DOD, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Energy in 2011 signed a memorandum of understanding with the private sector to commercialize advanced biofuels in order to reduce

Letter: Any readers care to talk about farming? To the Editor: Hopefully we will see letters to The Land that tell us about farming with problems of bugs, worms, high cost of seed with Roundup, on and on. Those of us in Wright County, Minn., still have Rep. Michele Bachmann with her Tea Party who was able to stall a much-needed farm bill and she didn’t like food stamps. My renter and other farmers need the insurance help with the high input costs. Being north of Cokato about 10 miles with loam/clay soils, my renter had very good beans and corn. Moisture was very scattered; we were lucky.

The writer from Eyota, Minn., complained about oil pipelines from Canada and the state of Nebraska said OK as long as the pipeline stayed in the east part of the state. The state didn’t want toxic crude to go through their Ogallala water supply. How is he going to pay for the $11 trillion GOP/Bush gave us along with thousands killed in GOP wars. How about the lady and others worried about legal sex, and it wasn’t about getting the best bull for your herd. It is great to hear about cover crops. Let’s keep families farming the land, not outside groups who live in New York, etc. Roger Rimpy Annandale, Minn.

THE LAND, DECEMBER 14, 2012

By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent Of all the decorations that can be put up to celebrate the season of Christmas, there is one that truly expresses what Christmas is about — the nativity scene. It is also called a crèche or manger scene, depending on one’s tradition.

NATIVITY, from pg. 7A figures for the western market. Finally, through a company called World Nativity, she was able to purchase one with Chinese figures, made from camphor wood by Chinese Christians. The culture in which a nativity scene is made is reflected not only in the look of the people, she said, but also in the style of art, the material used, the colors, the animals and the setting. Her scene from Alaska has a stable shaped like an igloo, with a polar bear and a moose among the animals. It is because of such unexpected details that one does not tire looking at Leach’s multiple nativity scenes. There is a newness to each one. The scenes from Central and South America are often brightly colored, but not all. A nativity of the Holy Family and the wise men made in the Amazon is white with black markings. “The figures wear the traditional costumes and have the facial artistry that is unique to the Ashaninka people of the Amazon rainforest,” Leach said. “The artist is Alberto Aparicio

Canchari.” The variety of African nativity scenes is equally fascinating. From Kenya alone Leach has one carved from black ebony, another carved from white kisii stone, another woven from banana fibers, and yet another carved from a six-inch piece of a branch that opens into a triptych with Joseph and Mary on the side panels and Jesus in the center. Asia also figures large in her collection. A Nepal nativity scene is carved from lustrous reddish Karma wood. The hands of Mary are held with the palms out, which in our culture would suggest pushing away, but Leach explained that in Nepalese culture it is a sign of welcome. Knowing about the artist and learning the symbolism they have used is one reason Leach supports World Nativity, a company started by a Salt Lake City man who sells nativities from around the world but takes no profit for himself. He is promoting native artists, and the scenes come with explanations of gestures and symbolism. Leach retired in 2009 from Southwest Minnesota State University in

Marilyn Leach proudly displays her 110 nativity scenes throughout her home in Marshall, Minn. Marshall where she had served as director of the Academic and Diversity Resources Department. Since 2005 she has been a part-time priest at St. James Episcopal Church in Marshall. St. James is a small congregation that raised up a group of members as a ministry team, Leach being one of two who were ordained to the priesthood. Her nativity collection “didn’t start as a collection,” she said. Her mother brought her a nativity set from Jerusalem, and a few years later traveled to Switzerland and brought her a nativity set from there. “Then my kids gave me a nativity, and then I started collecting,” Leach said. Of course, she has American nativity scenes, too, many given to her by family and friends. There is a ceramic one she purchased because she loved the colors. She has a large, full nativity scene made of brass with a wooden stable that was made in Minnesota. And she has one with multiple angels made by local glassblower Ed Carberry. “You never know where you’re going to find a nativity,” Leach said, showing both a bracelet and a cigarette lighter with nativity scenes on them. One of her favorites she recently pur-

chased through World Nativity. It was made by a young man in war-torn Liberia. He walked through the city streets and picked up empty bullet casings, using each casing to make a figure in the scene. “He wanted to make peace out of war,” Leach said. “That is absolutely one of my favorites.” Once a year Leach’s nativity scenes are opened to the public. It is part of her congregation’s “Anglican Christmas: From the Nativity to the Victorian.” The basement of the church building is filled with the Victorian Village of Charlotte Wendel. A few blocks up the street Leach opens her home for folks to view her nativity scenes. “Anglican Christmas: From the Nativity to the Victorian” is the second week in December. The days and times when the nativity scenes are open for viewing along with other activities and directions are at the congregation’s website, www.stjamesepiscopalmarshall.com.

‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ proves true for Halls The Hall family from Mountain Lake, Minn., has a lot to be grateful for this holiday season, as they continue to rebound from a tornado that wiped out their home and business.

By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent The evening of Aug. 3, 2006, Daniel and Terese Hall stood in the middle of their farmyard with their four sons — Jeremy, Andy, Tony, and Mike, all in their 20s. It was the one clear spot in the yard that was not covered with debris. And it was decision time. Two days before, at about 7:20 p.m., a tornado had dropped out of the sky, stayed about 90 seconds, wiped out the homestead, and lifted again. Daniel and Terese had been at Farmfest, promoting their fencing enterprise, Southwest Minnesota K Fence. Jeremy was on his way into Mountain Lake, Minn., to have supper with his wife. Andy, Tony and Mike had come into the house, put a pizza in the oven, and set the timer for 23 minutes. They never ate the pizza. As the weather turned ugly they headed to the basement, barely making it in time to huddle under the basement stairs and watch the sky appear as the house blew away. About an hour from home the Hall’s cell phone rang. Michael delivered the terse report: “The place is gone. There’s nothing left, but nobody got hurt.” When Dan and Terese arrived home and drove into the yard, Dan wasn’t sure where he was at. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been lost in my own yard,” he said. “I could not get my bearings.” As he drove in he remarked, “This isn’t where the driveway was.” Terese reminded him, “Dan, that’s the only thing that didn’t move.” Having weathered other crises, things had been looking up for the Hall family. Back in 1980 they built the house in which they had raised their four sons. Then the farm crisis hit and they nearly lost everything. “We were a feedlot and that’s what broke us in the 1980s,” Dan said. “We were losing $300 a head. Pretty soon our equity was pretty well gone.” When the last of the cattle went on the truck, Dan said he was never owning cattle again. And they didn’t for quite a while. Following their auction, Dan was employed for a while at a corporate hog operation, and they worked at growing the fence business they had started with their four sons, all of whom helped with installation. It was a stressful time that led to another crisis. In the early 1990s Terese had a heart attack while grocery shopping. She actually finished buying the groceries and drove herself to the hospital. She recovered without surgery, but described it as “a wake-up call” to pay attention to healthy eating and dealing with stress. Dan, who liked working with livestock and always did a lot of reading, was attracted by grazing. “Grazing looked like a way to cut down input costs considerably, so that’s when we started experimenting with grazing,” Dan said. “Growing corn and soybeans wasn’t looking good with big loans at the bank,” Terese said. So basically they switched to growing grass, and let cattle do the harvesting.

fence installation or in his brothers’ shops. As each of his brothers graduated from technical college, they returned to the farm to set up their businesses. Andy set up a welding shop on the farm in which he does design, fabrication and rebuilding. Tony also came back to the farm and established Hall and Carlson Performance Machining in which he rebuilds engines and does head repair, brake work, flywheel resurfacing and crankshaft grinding and balancing. In 2006, Mike had just graduated and was looking for a place on the already crowded farm where he could open his hydraulics and machining business. Then came Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2006. When the tornado destroyed the homestead, that included the Hall brothers businesses. And because of the time of day, the grazing herd had returned to the barn. Twenty-five injured cattle had to be shot. The others would recover, but not to a condition to be sold on the direct market. The only enterprise that survived was the fence company, because Dan and Terese had it with them at Farmfest. Two nights later, as they stood in the middle of their devastated homestead, the future was truly a family decision. The sons could move their businesses to available buildings in town. Dan and Terese could take their insurance check and get out of farming all together. The decision was unanimous. They weren’t going anywhere. They would rebuild right there. Other crises hadn’t chased them away, and neither would a tornado. After taking some time to clean away debris, they had to start making money. Friends loaned a portable shop to the brothers. Needing some immediate income, for a time the brothers left their businesses and helped their dad complete some fence projects. The Land ran ads informing people who had orders with Southwest Minnesota K Fence to call the Halls because all of their paperwork had been blown away. With no buildings or trees in the way, they decided to erect one large building to house all of the sons’ businesses, with living quarters on one end. They hired AmeriBuilt to put up the 60-foot x 204-foot outside shell. Dan and his sons completed the rest. It was designed for efficiency. They installed heating in the concrete floors,

put up insulation and interior walls. They custom-built hydraulic overhead doors, and sprinkled the shops with overhead cranes for the heavy work they do. They built walls to divide the businesses and built upstairs storage. On one end of the building is the office. On the other end will be living quarters. As with pioneer families, housing has taken a backseat. Jeremy and Mike live on nearby farms with their families; Dan, Terese, Andy, and Tony are still living in the basement of their former house (which will become headquarters for the fence business when the new living quarters are finally completed). Dan and Terese are rebuilding their grazing herd. They currently have 80 head. Terese direct markets as much of the grass-fed beef as she has time to do, but some still has to be sold at auction. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Terese said. She sees that in how they have survived a bankruptcy, a heart attack and now a tornado. When the boys were growing and the family sat at the supper table together, Dan often said, “it’s not how much money you make. You have to like what you do.” Terese thinks that helped her sons in choosing what they did and why they are back together, working on the farm. It also applies to Dan’s love for raising animals. He couldn’t stay away from livestock altogether, so he found a less capital-intensive way of raising it. Terese’s heart attack may have adjusted her lifestyle, but not her work ethic. She direct markets their beef, as well as the broilers and geese she raises, serves on numerous committees, and keeps the whole household organized. “We’ve been blessed,” Terese said, “with faith, family and friends. Your circle needs all three. Living on the land and working with livestock, you work with the good Lord each and every day.” A sense of humor helps, too. Two days after the tornado, Tony found the stove in the pasture, with the pizza still in the oven. He came home and reported his find. “Mom,” he said, “it needed two more minutes.” ❖

Likely the most popular of all holiday plants is, by a landslide vote, the poinsettia. I would venture to say a close second in popularity would be the amaryllis. Both plants add marvelous color to our homes during the dreary winter and serve as a great gift, if you are still in need of an idea. Poinsettias range in size from having large, 12inch flowers, to being a small accent plant to top a bookcase or corner table. Although the typical color of poinsettia is red, there are many color varieties of poinsettia — from cream, to pink or purple, and several variegated and speckled leaf patterns. The flowers of a poinsettia are actually groups of modified colored leaves called bracts that surround clusters of the inconspicuous true flowers. Poinsettia plant breeding has come a long way, and today it is not uncommon for poinsettias to keep long into March or April. Keep in mind when transporting poinsettia plants that even a small amount of a cold draft will cause them to drop their flowers. It is also important to keep the bracts from folding in transport. If these fold or break they will exude sap, so it is helpful to cut off the protective plastic bag or covering instead of pulling it off of the plant. Once a poinsettia has reached its home, keep it in a window that exposes the plant to six or more hours of bright light, keeping it away from drafts both cold and hot. Poinsettias do best with evenly moist soil. Too much water will cause bracts to wither and leaves to yellow and drop. If your poinsettia has a decorative foil or plastic covering its pot, poke some holes in the bottom of the foil and place it on a plate or saucer to catch excess moisture that would have been trapped. It is not necessary to fertilize poinsettias for the first six weeks after it is brought into the home. After that time, fertilize monthly using a diluted house plant fertilizer mixed at half of the label recommendation. After the holidays there are three possibilities for what to do with your poinsettia. You can discard it, keep it as a green foliage plant, or try and force it to bloom again next year. If you choose to keep the plant and want it to bloom next year, cut the plant back to about eight inches after the colored bracts have become a muddy green color. By the end of May you should have lush new growth. Before placing the plant outdoors, repot it into a slightly larger pot with fresh soil. Place the potted plant into a hole that is as deep as the pot is tall and in a location where it won’t be exposed to direct mid-day sun. Be sure to rotate the sunken pot weekly and break off any roots that may extend through the drainage holes. Bring the poinsettia back into the home as soon as evening temperatures cool in the fall and place it back into a sunny location in your home. Starting Oct. 1, put the poinsettia in a dark closet or cover it with a box that does not allow light to enter. Keep it in this darkness for 14 hours every evening, placing it in bright sunlight for the rest of the day. This is a labor-intensive process to initiate color and blooms, and this is why many choose to purchase a

Tips to prevent holiday stress and depression When stress is at its peak, it’s hard to stop and regroup. Try to prevent stress and depression in the first place, especially if you know the holidays have taken an emotional toll in previous years. Tips you can try to head off holiday stress and depression: • Acknowledge your feelings. If a loved

one has recently died or you aren’t able to be with your loved ones, realize that it’s normal to feel sadness or grief. It’s OK now and then to take time just to cry or express your feelings. You can’t force yourself to be happy just because it’s the holiday season. • Seek support. If you feel isolated or down, seek out family members and

friends, or community, religious or social services. They can offer support and companionship. Consider volunteering at a community or religious function. Getting involved and helping others can lift your spirits and broaden your friendships. Also, enlist support for organizing holiday gatherings, as well as meal preparation and cleanup. You don’t have to go it alone. Don’t be a martyr. • Be realistic. As families change and grow, traditions and rituals often change as well. Hold on to those you can and want to but accept that you may have to let go of others. For example, if your adult children and grandchildren can’t all gather at your house as usual, find new ways to celebrate together from afar, such as sharing pictures, e-mails or videotapes. • Set differences aside. Try to accept family members and friends as they are, even if they don’t live up to all your expectations. Practice forgiveness. Set aside grievances until a more appropriate time for discussion. With stress and activity levels high, the holidays might not be conducive to making quality time for relationships. Be understanding if others get upset or distressed when something goes awry. Chances are they’re feeling the effects of holiday stress and depression, too. • Stick to a budget. Before you go shopping, decide how much money you can afford to spend on gifts and other items. Then be sure to stick to your budget. If you

don’t, you could feel anxious and tense for months afterward as you struggle to pay the bills. Don’t try to buy happiness with an avalanche of gifts. Donate to a charity in someone’s name, give homemade gifts or start a family gift exchange. • Plan ahead. Set aside specific days for shopping, baking, visiting friends and other activities. Plan your menus and then make one big food-shopping trip. This will help prevent a last-minute scramble to buy forgotten ingredients and you’ll have time to make another pie, if the first one’s a flop. Expect travel delays, especially if you’re flying. • Learn to say no. Believe it or not, people will understand if you can’t do certain projects or activities. If you say yes only to what you really want to do, you’ll avoid feeling resentful, bitter and overwhelmed. If it’s really not possible to say no when your boss asks you to work overtime, try to remove something else from your agenda to make up for the lost time. • Rethink resolutions. Resolutions can set you up for failure if they’re unrealistic. Don’t resolve to change your whole life to make up for past excess. Instead, try to return to basic, healthy lifestyle routines. Set smaller, more specific goals with a reasonable time frame. Choose only those resolutions that help you feel valuable and that provide more than only fleeting moments of happiness.

PLANTS, from pg. 11A two inches greater in diameter than the bulb. It is important that the bulb is planted so that the top one-third of the bulb extends above the potting mixture. Use a good potting soil or soil-less mixture that drains well. Water the bulb well and place it into a cool place for a month or so until a shoot appears. Then move into bright light and fertilize every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer mixed to half the label recommendation. Keep your amaryllis plant out of direct sunlight while in bloom to keep the flower color from fading. Cooler temperatures and shadier locations also will help retain flowers longer. Amaryllis will re-bloom next year if you allow the plant to manufacture and store food in the bulb. After blooming, cut off the flowers to prevent seeds from forming. You do not need to remove the green stalk until it yellows on its own, as this stalk and any leaves are what will take in nutrients to store in the bulb. Water the amaryllis while it is still green but be careful to not overwater or water when the soil is already moist as this could

promote rotting in the bulb. The bulb and stalk can be placed outdoors after the first part of June. Continue to fertilize through the year. Then bring the bulb indoors before the first snowfall. Store in pots in a dark place such as a basement or closet and do not water the bulb. Remove the leaves and stalk after they have browned and shriveled. The bulb can be forced to bloom again once it is allowed to rest for eight to 12 weeks. If you are unable to produce stalks from the bulb, this means the bulb did not receive enough stored nutrients during the post-blooming period. It is important that the plant receives enough sunlight after it is done blooming in order to have enough energy to re-bloom. Enjoy this and future holiday seasons with these holiday plants.

ble toy for dogs. They are great for the animal to chew on because they will not damage the dog’s teeth, he said. He advises buying rawhides the animal can chew for a few hours, instead of a few days. “When rawhides sit around for too long, they grow bacteria and can potentially make your pet sick,” he said. Ropes are a common toy that pet owners should avoid. A string can get caught in the animal’s intestinal tract as a “linear foreign body,” he said, which may act like a saw inside the intestines as the animal continues to pass it. “This is similar to them getting a rope burn on the inside of their intestines,” he said. “It can kill them. Nothing with string of any sort is good for them.” After giving a dog toys, Stickney said, it’s important to watch the pet for a few hours. “You need to watch them to make sure they are not going to end up hurting themselves on it by tearing it into pieces, swallowing it or cutting themselves on it,” he said. Once you know your pets can’t get into trouble with their new toys, it is fine to leave them alone.

Tennis balls, Frisbees, rawhides and Kongs line the shelves of pet stores. As you face these choices, which toys should or shouldn’t you buy for man’s best friend? Dog owners first giving toys to their pets should buy a variety of items to see what the animal prefers, said Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor and director of general surgery services at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “They are going to have a toy preference the same way that children have toy preferences,” he said. “Once you determine their favorites, you can adjust your selection and your budget accordingly for the toys that entertain your pet.” Stickney said it’s important to make sure the toy is made of nontoxic material and is the appropriate size for the animal. A five-pound Yorkie, for example, will not be able to use an extra-large Kong toy made for a Rottweiler. Kong toys, he added, are among his favorite because they keep pets busy by challenging them to get a treat out of a small hole in the toy. Also, they are made of a durable rubber. As for treats, Stickney said it’s important to consider the amount of calories in the snack. Treats should encompass no more than 5 percent of the animal’s total diet, he said, so the animal will not put on extra weight. Rawhides are another category of edi-

The kids have been begging for a pet. And you’ve resisted — so far. You know who’d be walking a puppy at 7 a.m. Food bowls would go empty unless you filled them, water bowls would look like the Sahara, and you’re pretty sure that a litter box would be deemed “gross!” THE BOOKWORM SEZ within a week. Still, how can you resist a By Terri Schlichenmeyer cute face? How can you resist “Oink: My Life with Mini-Pigs” falling in love with a fuzzy By Matt Whyman baby? You can’t, and neither c.2011, Simon and could Matt Whyman. In his Schuster book “Oink: My Life with Mini$15 Pigs,” he squeals on his new 315 pages pets. Whyman always knew that his wife wanted a big family. Her childhood “was not a happy one,” and she longed for what she never had. That didn’t necessarily mean offspring of the human kind, however. Emma Whyman was happy with animals — lots of animals, which is why the Whymans moved to the English countryside. There, four children and two adults were joined by two cats, four rabbits, three hens and a large Canadian shepherd. So when one of the cats met an untimely demise and the children were inconsolable, work-at-home Whyman knew a replacement pet was imminent and he realized who would assume responsibility for it. He tried to reason with his family, but it was no use — particularly when they spied two adorable porcine faces online. The mini-pigs were “cute-o-rama.” Roxi and Butch were no bigger than kittens; in fact, they arrived at the Whyman house in a cat carrier. Their size, though, belied their determination: the mini-pigs quickly took over Whyman’s office, his dog’s bed, the living room, the sofa and the kitchen. They were little thieves, and stole family possessions, too. Eventually, with the help of a handyman friend who knew pigs, Whyman created an outdoor pen for his growing pets. He learned everything he could about being a “pig farmer,” including how to measure a boy pig’s, uh, potential. He also learned that even though his porkers were petite, they could tear apart a yard, a garden, a henhouse, the neighbor’s orchard — and a marriage. In the mood for a book that will make you squeal with a case of The Cutes? Then here’s what you do: take five parts “Marley,” shrink it by three-quarters, put it on cloven hooves and give it a curly tail. That’s See OINK, pg. 15A

That’s good enough, but what surprised me was the truth that Whyman willingly shares: his pigs were often a big irritation and they caused real problems. Still, don’t be fooled into thinking that this story ends badly. It doesn’t. I believe farmers will find a lot to laugh about in this book, now in paperback.

It’s food that gets people to the table, and sharing stories and life that keeps them seated long after the last dish is passed. Home is meant to be a warm, safe place. Within the book, “The Invested Life — making disciples of all nations one person at a time”, Joel C. Rosenberg and Dr. T.E. Koshy continually encourage mentors to invest in others within the walls of their homes. They write, “Invite people to your home, however small or large it may be, on a regular basis. Let people come and vent and recharge. Let them kick their shoes off, and you’ll find they’ll open their hearts as well.” The holidays lend themselves to warm, invest-inothers hospitality.

Advertorial Weather conditions affecting the 2012 crops resulted in yields that were surprising to some and disappointing to most in our area. As a result, tax planning strategies that proved beneficial in “normal” years with trend-line crop yields may not be the answer in 2012. Taxpayers who normally target a specific amount of tax to pay may find it difficult to manage their tax liability either up or down to their “normal” level depending on their situation. Because the federal tax code gives farmers unique opportunities to manage their income and social security tax liabilities, we have highlighted some tax planning strategies you may consider as you meet with your tax advisor for year-end planning. Marginal Tax Rates: Manage your tax liability without focusing on the total tax bill. Instead, place more emphasis on the marginal tax rates and strive to maximize the number of dollars taxed at the lower rates. Today’s historically low rates are very tax efficient and your goal should be to take full advantage of those brackets even if your actual tax bill is higher than prior years. At the federal level there is lively discussion about tax rates with the fiscal cliff looming. As lawmakers attempt to resolve this issue, stay tuned for possible changes in federal tax rates.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

Prepaid Expenses: Prepaid expenses are permitted as an income deduction if they will normally be consumed in a 12 month period and do not exceed 50% of the current year’s deductible expenses including depreciation. Prepaid expenses are not a deposit on account, but instead are a purchase of a specific quantity of a specific product at a specific price. These purchases should be accompanied by an invoice or they may be disqualified by the IRS as a nondeductible deposit. Prepaid expenses are only allowed by the IRS if they are clearly supported by business reasons such as mitigating price risk or securing early order supplier discounts. Deferred Commodity Sales: The tax code provides cash method farmers the opportunity to sell inventory under the installment sale provision. To qualify as deferred sale under this provision, you must have a written contract with the buyer that specifies the amount of the sale and the date of the deferred cash payment. Payment for the deferred sale may be extended beyond the first day of the new year but consideration should be given to your cash flow requirements and the counter party risk associated with the buyer. If income doesn’t come in as expected, your tax advisor may elect to recognize one or more of those deferred sales contracts in the current year. Deferred Crop Insurance Proceeds: This year, farmers who insured their crops and experienced significant yield losses may be eligible to receive a sizeable crop insurance indemnity payment. Subject to passing a number of IRS tests, you may elect to postpone reporting insurance proceeds on damaged crops from the year of the damage. Consult your tax advisor to see if you qualify to make this election. Accelerated Depreciation: Section 179 expensing and bonus depreciation provide excellent opportunities for farmers to accelerate the depreciation of assets for income tax purposes. Through December 31, 2012, businesses are allowed 50% bonus depreciation on new assets and a $139,000 Section 179 expensing limit which can be applied to both new and used assets purchased from an unrelated party. For 2013, the 50% bonus depreciation will phase out and the Section 179 deduction will drop to $25,000 if Congress does not change the law. Remember that an asset must be placed in service before the IRS will allow you to realize a deduction for its depreciation. Also keep in mind, for state income tax purposes, the full amount of bonus depreciation or Section 179 expensing may not be fully allowed in the first year but rather spread out over a number of years. Ask your tax advisor about bonus depreciation and Section 179 expensing limitations specific to your state.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Farm Income Averaging: Farm income can electively be “averaged” by applying a portion of current farm income equally to the prior three years. You will need to work with your tax advisor to make the optimum election. For self-employed taxpayers, it can be advantageous to spike income this year to exceed the $110,100 FICA maximum contribution and tax the excess farm income at only the 2.9% Medicare self employment tax rate. At the same time, income averaging can be utilized to hold down the income tax rate. Retirement Plan Funding: Most farmers don’t maximize retirement plan funding. With special consideration for employee coverage rules and contribution limits, your tax advisor can analyze your situation to determine whether a SIMPLE, SEP, 401(k), defined contribution plan, or even a defined benefit plan is the best fit. Unlike the previously mentioned tax planning strategies, retirement plans provide a long-term tax deferral and are a creditor-proof asset. If taxable income isn’t where you thought it would be after considering these points, consult your tax advisor for additional tax planning strategies. In your quest to manage taxable income, remember that profitability is your objective. Even though it’s taxable, business income generates the cash you need to reduce debt, acquire assets and fund investments your family will enjoy!

Mix first six ingredients together in a small bowl. Rub mixture evenly over pork. Place pork in a dish and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate five hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pork in a roasting pan, cover with aluminum foil, and roast on center oven rack for 40 minutes, or until cooked through. Cool to room temperature. Meatloaf in its many forms goes over pretty well at my house, so with sons home from college I made the Cheeky Monkey version, which garnered four out of four yums from the Johnson clan. It’s very tender (the Parmesan cheese and ground veal take care of that), flavorful, moist and yummy while hot, then sets up nicely in the fridge so you can easily slice the rest for sandwiches.

Well, here you go. “Halal” translates to “permissible” under Islamic law — sort of like the term “kosher” for Jewish law — and means that the animal had its neck ritually sliced rather than being “shot, boiled or electrocuted”. If you still have an appetite after that little tidbit, try: Zahra’s Beef Sambusa Filling 2 pounds halal ground beef (very lean) 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon 1 teaspoon ground garam masala (look in the spice aisle) 5 medium yellow onions, finely diced 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves thoroughly washed, dried and finely chopped, and stems discarded 1 large bunch green onions, thoroughly washed and dried, greens quartered lengthwise and finely chopped, root ends and whites discarded 3 or 4 green Serrano chiles, seeds

By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent Before we start the main portion of “Cookbook Corner,” allow me to take a moment to thank the most important people in this column’s life: you, the readers. You are the reason for the season(ing). You are my inspiration and my muse, the attentive, grateful and educational audience that I search out the best recipes for. I hope you find simplicity and perfection in your kitchen this holiday season. ■ Let’s discuss the importance of lunch, shall we? Breakfast is usually something you can make half-asleep, such as burnt toast, while dinner gets a bunch of glamorous recipes, such as Poached Wine with Caramelized Truffle Vapor. The humble lunch, however, is a soothing respite from a hectic schedule, a necessary timeout to refuel and reflect and, possibly, the best thing that’s happened to us so far each day. After all, you see what we had for breakfast. “Minnesota Lunch: From Pasties to Banh Mi” (Minnesota Historical Society Press) is a tribute to that beacon of joy we call lunch. Filled with fresh recipes and loads of good interpretive writing on our melting-pot culture, it’s a book worth sharing for both the food and the stories. The recipes that follow come from a variety of Minnesota restaurants that have been serving them to grateful customers for many years. Next time you have pork roast, try seasoning it with an easy Asian-style spice rub like they do at Vina’s Restaurant in Richfield. With the red food coloring, it’ll even look like the restaurant pork. The five-spice powder adds an exotic Vietnamese flavor. Vina’s Restaurant Roast Pork 1 teaspoon five-spice powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 teaspoons soy sauce 1 teaspoon sesame oil A few drops of red food coloring (optional) 2 pounds pork butt, sliced into two or three pieces and skin thoroughly cleaned (optional: remove skin)

Grain Outlook Corn treading water in market

Livestock Angles Grain Angles Standoff between Real ‘brain drain’ packers, feedlots returning home Grain producers have been living in the “best of times” these last few years. Profits for the most part have been easy to capture. There is renewed interest in agriculture, and younger generations wanting to return to farming. This has followed decades of young people looking for other opportunities to work in more lucrative careers. Many rural communities “exported” highly educated young people, who were raised with a work ethic that urban employers were glad to hire. This created what sociologists call a “brain drain” in many rural communities. With the current grain production TOM NEHER economics, many of these folks who AgStar VP & Team left their rural hometowns for the — Grain Industry bright lights of the city want to Leader Rochester, Minn. return to their roots. They have found that it is not as simple as just wanting to get back into farming. The business has become so “capital intensive” that many people simply do not have the resources to put together a farming operation without significant outside assistance. Some families have worked all of their lives to pay off farms and build financial security, only to mortgage those farms in order to try and expand the operations to support another family. This is a real dilemma for many farm families. Parents want to see their children continue farming as they have, yet they are risking their financial security and retirement in the process. Many of the younger generation who had built careers in the urban setting, have grown to enjoy the rewards of an urban lifestyle that is vastly different than what their parents enjoyed early in their farming careers. Some have found that they had married spouses during their urban career days, who never

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Over the past several weeks, the hog and cattle markets have been moving in opposite directions. This is not an unusual occurrence over the years. However, this time it is the hog prices that are moving higher and the cattle prices moving lower. Are we seeing a change in the price relationship between the two or is this just a temporary adjustment? The cattle market has been struggling for several weeks attempting to move higher because of decreased numbers. With packer margins in the red, packers have been reluctant to pay higher prices for inventory. There has been a virtual standoff between the packers and the feedlots, both attempting to move JOE TEALE prices in the direction most advanBroker tageous to each. This resulted in Great Plains Commodity prices remaining nearly unchanged Afton, Minn. for several weeks before slipping in the last week of November. A major problem for the cattle market continues to be the slow movement of beef product. With beef cutouts in the mid- to upper-$190 per hundredweight, demand has continued to be a problem as retail and export business have slowed. Beef production remains relatively high in spite of the fact that slaughter levels are lower. The problem being that cattle weights are at all-time highs which keeps beef production per animal at higher levels. Which in turn, to some degree, negates the lower number of cattle available for slaughter. Producers should consider the current market conditions and consider protecting inventory if necessary. The hog market has been on a good recovery rally during November. Pork product movement has picked up once again as pork cutouts bottomed after the long decline starting with last summer’s highs. Because of the disparity between pork and the other

The following market analysis is for the week ending Dec. 7. CORN — Corn treaded water this week, alternating daily between a higher and lower close, until Friday when selling punched prices sharply lower. Technically, March corn is still within its $7.30 to $7.75 range, but Friday’s close is the first settlement below the 50-day moving average since Nov. 21 and to its lowest level in three weeks. The U.S. dollar contributed to the sell off as it traded to its highest level since late-November. Argentina corn planting PHYLLIS NYSTROM progress was at a virtual standCHS Hedging Inc. still the first week of December St. Paul due to more rain, but clearer weather should allow a return to the field the second week of the month. Argentine corn planting is pegged at 55 percent complete versus 69 percent last year. Looking ahead, U.S. wheat conditions are not improving, bringing into question if wheat will remain a viable feed alternative in the coming year. Weekly export sales were a disappointment at 2 million bushels, taking total exports commitments to 46 percent less than at this time last year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is showing a year-on-year decline of only 25.5 percent. We need 19 million bushels per week to accomplish the USDA forecast. There was market chatter late in the week that China and the Ukraine were close to working a deal where China would buy 500,000 metric tons of corn. Taiwan bought a cargo of corn from Brazil for January-to-February shipment.

Soybean exports well ahead of USDA projection NYSTROM, from pg. 21A Ethanol production was up 32,000 barrels per day from last week, pushing annualized corn grind to 4.7 billion bushels versus the USDA’s 4.5 billion estimate. Next week’s USDA crop report is for a slightly higher carryout of 666 million versus 647 million on the November report. The Mississippi River situation continues to confound traders. Barge freight offers are non-existent for the January-to-February time slot. Demand for freight on the lower Ohio River is firming. Rock blasting will begin in January, about a month earlier than originally scheduled. The Army Corps of Engineers has rejected the request to increase water flow from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River saying there could be “significant negative effects” on the Missouri system, including drinking water. According to one report, an estimated 96,000 grain rail cars move from St. Louis to the Gulf every year; it would take another 80,000 cars to replace what is shipped by barge. According to estimates, the St. Louis area river levels could reach their lowest since 1940 by the first of the year. Adding pressure to the late-week break was news that Russia wants U.S. pork and beef exports to be tested and certified free of ractopamine, a feed additive. Without a program, pork and beef exports to Russia could effectively

be stopped as early as Dec. 8. OUTLOOK: Seasonally, buying May corn on Dec. 9 and selling on Jan. 6 has been profitable in 13 out of the last 15 years (Moore Research). However, some technicians are leaning toward revisiting the September low of $7.08 3/4 since we couldn’t hold the 50-day moving average or take out the previous week’s high. I am reluctant to throw in the towel for such a move, but if we can’t hold $7.30, the next support is $7.14 1/4, then $7.08 3/4 per bushel. Resistance is seen at $7.59 1/4, then $7.67 1/2 per bushel. March corn fell 15 1/2 cents this week to close at $7.37 1/4 per bushel. The market needs demand to reverse the current downtrend, but fundamentals of a tight carryout should keep the range in place. As for 2013, Iowa State University Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor says we could expect a fourth year of below trendline corn yields (147 bushels per acre is his early estimate). With that in mind, be judicious in picking pricing points for downside protection. SOYBEANS — Soybeans’ uptrend extended this week to the 50-day moving average, which also coincided with a 62 percent retracement of the break from $15.71 1/2 to $13.72 1/4 per bushel. January soybeans however were unable to close above the 50-day moving average, suggesting we could be in for a modest setback, but demand is

running the market and that has not disappeared. January beans closed higher four consecutive days, falling only on Friday to close at $14.72 1/4, still up 33 1/2 cents for the week. China bought 115,000 mt of U.S. beans during the week. Weekly export sales were well ahead of what we need to reach the USDA’s 1.345 billion bushel projection. Sales were 42 million bushels when we need 9.6 million per week to achieve the forecast. Total soybean export commitments are 78 percent of the yearly forecast. Meal sales were gigantic at 463,600 mt, taking total commitments to 37 percent above last year. Oil sales have already reached the USDA estimate and were modest this week at 19,000 mt. Next week’s USDA report does not make changes to the supply side of the balance sheet, but can make adjustments to demand. Exports and crush are expected to show increases in light of how high exports have been. Ending U.S. stocks are anticipated to be down an average of 5 mil-

lion bushels to 135 million bushels. South American production is open to revision with expectations for a slight increase due to acreage switching in Argentina. CONAB upped their Brazilian bean estimate to 82.6 million mt from 81.5 mmt (USDA is at 81 mmt). OUTLOOK: While January soybeans were unable to finish the week above the 50-day moving average, the next resistance stands near $15.25 per bushel. Demand rationing has not yet taken place in the soy complex, although corrections in the uptrend should be expected. While no big surprises are anticipated on the Dec. 11 crop report, you never know. Without them, look for the upside to be tested on strong fundamentals. Goldman Sachs this week put their soybean price projection for the first half of 2013 at $16.50 per bushel. This material has been prepared by a sales or trading employee or agent of CHS Hedging Inc. and should be considered a solicitation. ❖

TEALE, from pg. 21A meats, it appears that the shift in demand for lower-priced meat sources turned to pork product. This shift resulted in packers seeking more live inventory despite the fact that cold storage numbers were quite high. Since packer margins were good in comparison to other meats, the accumulation of hogs by the packer continued. As pork cutouts moved higher the packer has become more willing to be more aggressive in acquiring inventory

and thus the current strength in hog prices. With all the economic uncertainty in the world at present, a cautious approach should be taken toward the hog market and for that matter all other markets until a clear picture develops. Therefore, because of this situation and the change in the basis in the hog market from a discount to a premium, producers should approach the market with trepidation and protect inventories when appropriate. ❖

NEHER, from pg. 21A thought they would live on a farm. For some, this has created some lifestyle challenges that they never anticipated early in their marriages. If families are in this type of situation the challenge becomes one of expanding the grain production operations to a size to support an urban lifestyle, still allowing the retiring generation the security they have spent a lifetime to accomplish. Many have found that these situations place greater demands on their managerial skills and abilities. Fortunately, there is a small, yet growing number of consulting professionals who are skilled at helping farm families manage through these challenging decisions. When a lifetime of work is on the

line, it may be money well spent to bring in some highly skilled professionals to help organize the efforts and ask the challenging questions. Rural communities are facing another challenge with this “brain drain” that is returning home. The challenge is how to leverage the returning talent, which has enjoyed lifestyles and events that many in their hometowns did not experience. This can be a challenge, yet it truly is a blessing for these communities to have some of the brightest students from their high school graduating classes return to make investments in their communities. We are truly blessed to enjoy the freedom to pursue our dreams. These are grain angles worth leveraging. ❖

THE LAND, DECEMBER 14, 2012

The 2012 election is over, and the ag policy discussions are now focusing on the so-called “fiscal cliff ” and finalizing the next farm bill. If the fiscal cliff is not resolved by the end of 2012, it could potentially impact a large percentage of residents all across the United States, including farm families. The current farm bill expired on Sept. 30, and some programs will be discontinued without a new farm bill, or an extension of the current farm bill. After months of campaign ads, debates and analysis, the end result of the 2012 election at the federal level resulted in minimal change. President Obama was re-elected, the U.S. Senate remains controlled by the Democrats and the U.S. House remains controlled by the Republicans. The overall leadership in both houses of Congress, as well as the leadership on the respective agriculture committees, is not likely to change much. As a result, it will be a similar slate of leaders that try to resolve the difficult issues such as budget items, the next farm bill and other ag policy issues, both in the current session of Congress, and after Jan. 1. The so-called “fiscal cliff ” is a name that has been attached to the combination of spending cuts and tax increases at the federal level that are scheduled to take effect at the end of 2012, if Congress fails to reach an agreement to address the federal budget deficit. Both the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House are trying to find a federal budget compromise that can be passed by both houses of Congress, and ultimately signed into law by President Obama. Congress has set up legislation that will allow the automatic tax increases and federal spending reductions to occur, if no budget agreement is reached. The automatic tax increases that would occur in 2013, if no agreement is reached by Congress, would add approximately $550 billion to the federal treasury next year. The required federal government spending reductions, if no budget agreement is reached, would reduce federal spending by about $109 billion in 2013, which would affect nearly every program that receives federal funding, including

MILC payments could be made retroactive to Oct. 1, once a final agreement is reached by Congress. Also, there are no provisions for disaster payments under the SURE program or livestock assistance programs for 2012, even though the 2012 drought was one of the worst in U.S. history. There are many other USDA programs for conservation, rural development and export enhancement that will be discontinued without a new farm bill, or an extension of the current farm bill. Both the version of the new farm bill passed by the U.S. Senate and the version passed by the House ag committee called for some major changes in the risk management (“safety net”) portions of the farm bill. Both versions of the new farm bill would result in some major savings to the federal budget over the next five years (2013-17), which is why Congress could tie the passing of a new farm bill into a possible legislative compromise on the so-called “fiscal cliff,” which was discussed earlier. The U.S. House farm bill would result in estimated savings of approximately $35 billion over the next five years, while the U.S. Senate farm bill would save about $23 billion over the next five years. The differences in budget savings comes from reductions proposed by the U.S. House ag committee in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which includes the food stamp program. The reductions to the SNAP program are major point of contention on passing a new farm bill. Key commodity provisions and differences in new farm bill proposals Direct payments will be eliminated in the new farm bill. Both the Senate and the House version of the new farm bill would eliminate the current direct payments, which have been paid to crop producers each year regardless of crop revenue. It is probably best to budget for the 2013 crop year without including direct payments. If Congress passes an extension to the current farm bill, it is possible that some level of direct payments could remain for 2013; however, Congress could also reduce or eliminate the 2013 direct payments as part of the farm bill extension legislation. Maintenance of a strong federal crop insurance program. Both versions of the new farm bill would maintain a strong federal crop insurance program as a cornerstone of a risk management program for U.S. crop producers. Current FCIC crops, coverage levels, premium subsidies, etc., will be reviewed; however, it does not appear that the new farm bill will have any major changes in FCIC programs. Both of the proposed versions of the new farm bill would create a “Supplemental Coverage Option,” which would allow a producer to purchase up to 90 percent crop insurance coverage. The SCO coverage would be optional to individual producers, but may be an attractive alternative. Initiation of a new “shallow-loss” risk management program for crop producers.

the current ACRE and SURE programs, which provide income to crop producers based on revenue reductions. The Senate version of the farm bill would create the Ag Risk Coverage program, while the House version of the farm bill would create the Revenue Loss Coverage program. The ARC and RLC programs are similar programs to cover revenue losses for crop producers that exceed certain parameters. Both proposed “shallow loss” programs would focus on crop revenue reductions, compared to target revenues that are based on five-year average crop revenues.

Payment limits and SNAP programs are key differences in the Senate and House versions of the new farm bill.

The U.S. Senate version of the new farm bill would set payment limits at $50,000 per entity for the ARC program, while the House version of the legislation would set payment limits at $125,000 per entity for the RLC or PLC programs. This is a difference that will need to be worked out in a final version of the new farm bill. The current farm bill has a payment limit of $40,000 per individual for direct payments, and a $65,000 for potential ACRE and counter-cyclical payments, The ARC program would cover losses or a maximum payment limit of between 79 and 89 percent, while the $105,000 per individual.

This column was written for the marketing week ending Dec. 7. Farm milk prices have peaked for 2012. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the November federal order benchmark Class III price Wednesday at $20.83 per hundredweight, down 19 cents from October but still $1.76 above November 2011, a whopping $2.35 above California’s

comparable 4b cheese milk price, and the highest November price ever. It equates to about $1.79 per gallon. The 2012 average, now at $17.33, is down a dollar from this time a year ago and compares to $14.46 in 2010 and a disastrous $11.03 in 2009. Look for a big drop ahead. The December Class III futures contract was trading late Friday morning at $18.50. January was at $17.90; February, $17.99; March, $18.22; and April at $18.32. The

Plains wheat crop not emerging due to drought exports to 113.6 million pounds, 70.5 million of butter, 127,868 pounds of anhydrous milk fat and 171,961 pounds of WMP to 36 countries. ■ We mentioned the drought here a few weeks ago, something we haven’t heard much about in the major press for a long time but its effect is still with us. The Nov. 30 Daily Dairy Report pointed out that the U.S. winter wheat crop is entering dormancy in the worst condition on record. DDR analyst Sarina Sharp talked about it in the Daily Dairy Discussion on the DDR website. She reported that only 33 percent of the crop is in good or excellent shape, compared to 52 percent at this time last year. The Plains states are still struggling with severe to extreme drought, and in the driest areas, an alarming portion of the crop has not emerged. She reported that only 60 percent of South Dakota’s wheat crop has emerged, compared to 100 percent a year ago. Much of the seed that has not emerged likely has blown away in the dust. Wheat could deteriorate further under cold, dry conditions, Sharp said. Dormant winter wheat is typically insulated from damaging cold by snow cover. But there is little moisture in the forecast, and this year the crop could be unprotected. A lack of winter moisture could extend the devastating drought into the start of the next crop year. She said it’s too early to assume this dryness will persist until spring but warned that feed prices will be highly sensitive to any indication that the

Corn Belt is facing a multi-year drought. A large crop is needed to replenish stocks or end-users will face another year of demand rationing and record-high grain prices. Lingering drought could also restrict the supply and quality of forage and increase competition for limited supplies, Sharp said, and “the quality of forage used in dairy cow rations has a significant impact on production. “Dairy producers will likely have to pay a considerable premium for goodquality forage if drought continues, and milk production per cow could suffer.” She added that, “As the drought reduces winter pasture available for beef cattle, more cattle will be placed on feedlots and consume purchased forage. Dairy producers will be forced to compete for these supplies.” ■ In politics, a letter was delivered to members of Congress this week from 42 organizations and 149 businesses serving farmers and rural communities calling on lawmakers to review the dairy policies that have “contributed to the financial crisis experienced by the majority of dairy farmers across the U.S. “Federal dairy policies have been hammering dairy farmers for more than 30 years,” the letter charged. “There were 600,000 U.S. dairy farms in 1976, dropping to 131,509 by 1992, and to 51,481 by 2012. It is unthinkable that Congress continues to formulate policies that will likely be responsible for a continued decline in the number of U.S. dairy farms.”

cent; other cheese, up 2.2 percent; nonfat dry milk was up 27.9 percent; but fluid milk products were off 2.2 percent. Jerry Dryer commented on the fluid sales in his Nov. 30 Dairy and Food Market Analyst, “part of the decline was driven by school milk sales or more appropriately, the lack of chocolate milk sales, as many school districts banned or limited chocolate milk at the beginning of this school year. Sugar was the culprit, not the milk. Unfortunately, kids have a strong preference for chocolate.” ■ October butter production hit 46 million pounds, up 6.8 percent from September and slightly above October 2011, according to the USDA’s Dairy Products report. Nonfat dry milk, at 95 million pounds, was up 12.4 percent from September but 5.6 percent below a year ago. American type cheese output, at 371 million was up 6.1 percent from September and 5.1 percent above a year ago. Italian type, at 388 million, was up 4.8 percent from September and 0.9 percent above a year ago. Total cheese production amounted to 928 million pounds, 6.3 percent above September output and 3.2 percent from a year ago. ■ Cooperatives Working Together accepted 10 requests for export assistance this week to sell 1.3 million pounds of cheese, 1.1 million pounds of butter and 85,890 pounds of whole milk powder to customers in Asia and the Middle East.

Cash butter inched up a half-cent Wednesday reversing 12 consecutive sessions of loss, added another halfcent Thursday, and closed Friday at $1.59, still a penny below the previous week, the fourth week of decline, and a nickel below a year ago. Twenty cars found new homes on the week. AMS butter plunged 14.6 cents, averaging $1.7088. AMS powder averaged $1.5310, up 1.1 cent, and dry whey averaged 65.7 cents, up 0.3 cent. Churning over the Thanksgiving holiday was seasonally strong, according to the DMN, as surplus cream was plentiful. Milk handling returned to normal following the holiday and Class I orders were increased as schools and colleges resumed. ■ Milk production in the Southwest is following the recent theme of incremental week-to-week increases but trailing year-ago levels. Pacific Northwest output is also below last year, attributed to fewer cows and less output per cow. Milk volumes are steady in Utah and Idaho. Seasonal milk production patterns are prevalent across the Midwest with milk component tests steady to slightly higher. Milk is being moved around to balance dairy product inventories and maximize returns. Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast output is increasing marginally, yet trending below a year ago. Commercial disappearance of dairy products in the first nine months of 2012 totaled 151 billion pounds, up 2.1 percent from 2011. Butter was up 3.1 percent; American cheese, up 2.2 per-

Cheese makers argue dry whey making is capital intensive MIELKE, from pg. 27A The letter added that the crisis affects farmers, their families and “the entire rural economy.” The International Dairy Foods Association’s Jerry Slominski told DairyLine listeners this week that processors support an extension of the current farm bill. ■ In the latest “war out West,” Dairy Profit Weekly’s Dave Natzke detailed how the debate in California over the 4b pricing formula centers on the value of dry whey, which has increased in both demand and value in recent years. As a result of the current pricing formula, California dairy farmers receive substantially less than dairy farmers who market milk used for cheese through federal orders. California is the second-leading cheese producing state, with well over 40 percent of its milk turned into cheese, Natzke said, “so, we’re talking about a lot of milk, and a lot of money.” He said that California dairy farmers contend that they should be getting a greater share of that value through the Class 4b minimum milk price paid by cheese manufacturers. Cheese makers argue that dry whey manufacturing is a capital intensive process, and that, with California milk processing capacity already stretched to the maximum, they are unable to pass higher milk prices back to the farmers.

■ California Department of Food and Agriculture Secretary Karen Ross on Thursday called for a Dec. 21 hearing to consider proposed amendments to all classes of California milk, not just the Class 4b price as requested by three producer organizations on Dec. 3. According to the CDFA’s hearing notice, proposed adjustments to Class 1, 2, 3, 4a and 4b prices will be considered for a period not to exceed six months and the hearing will be held at the CDFA auditorium in Sacramento, according to the DPW. Ross filed the hearing notice after denying a petition by California Dairies Inc., Dairy Farmers of America Western Area Council and Land O’Lakes Inc. requesting a hearing on changing the class 4b pricing formula. In a letter to CDI CEO Andrei Mikhalevsky, DFA senior vice president Dennis Rodenbaugh and LOL general counsel Pete Janzen, CDFA director Kevin Masuhara denied the request, saying “the proposed modification does not effectuate the purposes of the Stabilization and Marketing Plans.” “The department has determined that the modification of one component of one class of milk, the dry whey factor, is an inappropriate mechanism to address the financial challenges of California dairy producers for a couple of reasons. “First, it cannot be justified due to a lack of reliable economic data that can be used to calculate this value in relation to the market. Second, there is an

inequity embedded within the factor because not all cheese plants transform dry whey into a marketable dry whey product.” Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash. His weekly column is featured in newspapers across the country and he may be reached at lkmielke@juno.com. ❖

Feed, lean hog prices lessen drought’s blow to pork producers An increase in lean hog prices and a decrease in feed costs have combined to reduce the drought’s effect on the pork industry, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says. During the height of the drought, when December corn futures reached $8.49 per bushel and December soybean meal futures reached $540 per ton, markets anticipated heavy liquidation of sows. That feared liquidation dropped December lean hog futures to $70, and producers anticipated per-head losses of $50 to $60, Chris Hurt said. “A panic response might have been to cover substantial amounts of feed needs at record high prices, to forwardprice lean hog futures before the outlook worsened or to just sell out altogether,” he said. “Now that the damage from the 2012 drought is better known, those who did not panic are facing much smaller losses than what were feared at the height of the crisis.” In drought years, feed prices often peak at or just after the height of the drought, then decrease. That trend has continued in 2012, with December corn futures now near $7.40/bu. and December soybean meal futures closer to $425/ton. According to Hurt, a $1-per-bushel reduction in corn prices and a $100-per-ton reduction in soybean meal prices lower hog production costs by about $12 per head. “Lower feed prices are important to the reduction in anticipated losses, but improved lean hog prices have been even more significant,” he said. “December lean hog futures are currently above $80, which represents at least a $10-increase over drought-induced liquidation fears in early September. A $10 increase in lean hog prices means more than a $20 reduction in anticipated losses.” The increased lean hog prices combined with lower feed costs have translated into reduced losses of about $30 per head — about 40 percent coming from the lower feed prices and 60 percent from higher lean hog futures, Hurt said. That’s not to say that sow liquidation didn’t occur. Producers increased sow slaughter in early July and continued that trend through mid-October. “During this 14-week period, sow slaughter averaged 4 percent higher than for the same weeks of 2011 and likely resulted in a national breeding herd reduction of about 2 percent,” Hurt said. “In the weeks since mid-October, sow slaughter has dropped below previous-year levels as optimism for a muchimproved outlook in 2013 was unfolding.” Hurt’s full report, “Pork Producers Did Not Panic” and the accompanying podcast are available via Farmdoc Daily at http://bit.ly/W3J2gT.

St. Peter, Minn., chiropractor goes to the (care of) dogs brand new person,” Nelson said. After a treatment session, the dog typically will be tired and thirsty. In the case of Ostoff’s dog, three visits to Nelson put it back in the pink. “After the first visit, at least she wasn’t any worse,” he said. “After the second visit, she was running around, sometimes playing like a puppy would, but she still wasn’t 100 percent. “After the last visit, we went out to the truck she jumped right onto the tailgate,” he said. Ostoff, who admitted he was a little skeptical of canine chiropractic treatment, now says he is sold on it. “It was a last resort and really, not a lot of

money,” he said. An initial visit to Rising Sun Chiropractic, including the physical assessment and treatment costs $75. Subsequent visits are $45. Now well into the fall hunting seasons and having logged numerous days afield with his four-legged hunting partner who is back to hunting with gusto, Ostoff believes it was money well-spent. “She’s back to her old self,” he said. “We’ve been out hunting pretty much all day sometimes,” he said.

But while the dog initially seemed to recover from the encounter, over the next several months, Ostoff noticed a significant decline in the dog’s physical abilities. “She was struggling just to get up steps,” he said. “I was started to think it was time to look for a new hunting dog.” Then Ostoff’s wife heard of a chiropractic clinic in St. Peter, Minn., that in addition to treating humans, also offered chiropractic treatment for animals. “Instead of investing all the money and emotion in a new dog, I though it was worth a try,” he said.

Abraham and his descendants forever, even as he said to our fathers.” Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home. In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” When the angels had left them and gone into

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me — holy is his name. His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to

heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived. When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord”), and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: “a pair of doves or two young pigeons.” Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.” The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.” There was also a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, and then was a widow until she was 84. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him. — Luke 1:26 - 2:40 New International Version

Our Neck of the Woods, Browerville, Minn.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

oug Johnson feels strongly that the old buildD ings in the central business district of small towns should be preserved and used. He’s also a guy who practices what he preaches. Not long ago he moved his title business out of the basement of his Browerville, Minn., home and into a 1900-era Main Street hardware store. “They sold furniture and caskets upstairs and hardware downstairs,” Doug says of the former Conn’s Hardware store. “In the later years they were known for their TVs and appliances.” Although Browerville still boasts a hardware store, Conn’s went the way of many other small town hardware stores. The building was empty for a while and then struggled to keep a tenant. So when it came up for sale, Johnson and his family jumped at the opportunity. Then the Johnsons,

with help from friends, started Our Neck of The Woods. The store sign announces that the business sells antiques, home decor and primitives. But, in reality, there is more; scarves could be spotted near the long row of glassware. “I was ready to come out of the basement,” Johnson said. “Now I do my title business from here and run the store.” Johnson is proud that little had to be done to get the sturdy building ready for its new life. He likes to show off the original maple floor, the old hardware bins built into the wall, the tin ceiling and the hardware department signs. “We did put some support pillars under the balcony,” Johnson said. “It was designed to hang from the ceiling. We wanted to add some support.”

Like a lot of old retail buildings, Our Neck Of The Woods has huge front windows designed to provide light for their long deep interiors. The result is a lot of light in the front that fades toward the back of the store. The stores decorators, Peggy Carlson and Rhoda Ostendorf, complemented that natural light. Necklaces of small sparking white lights are draped from the balcony railings. They give the store a festive aura. The balcony view — with the warm colors from the maple flooring, the rows of colored glassware and the garlands of light — is marvelous. In addition to the main sales floor and balcony, Our Neck Of The Woods has a couple of side rooms full of tables — decorated this time of year for Christmas. ❖

Family dairies still dominate across the Minnesota landscape but larger, mega-cow dairies are also happening and these invariably use Hispanic labor. So will milk production expand in the Upper Midwest partly because of the dependability of Hispanic labor? One might make that assumption. “A lot of Midwestern dairies with more than 200 cows, in fact over 90 percent of these dairy farms, now employ Hispanic labor,” Delgado said. “Farmers don’t speak the same language or know the culture of the workers. However making these situations work I think is about the rules, not the culture. It’s OK to understand the culture but working with cows is not about culture, it’s about rules.” Lefebvre said part of the growing optimism about dairying in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest is being blessed with good land and high-quality water. “Being able to grow highquality feedstuffs right here in our backyard makes Minnesota a very competitive dairy state. Part of the challenge in the west and southwest is not only population pressures and environmentalists but also the arid climate of that area. Because of water limitations they simply don’t have the ability to grow high-quality feedstuffs. It’s just a well-known fact that the Upper Midwest is a great place to dairy.” His thoughts on the next dairy program in the next farm bill? “What the dairy industry needs is a good safety net. Both the Milk Income Loss Contract and dairy price supports are history or will be Dec. 31. But for the continued production of dairy products a sensible program of income protection needs to be part of the language. I can’t detail it but a farm bill that provides a good, solid safety net is vital for our producers.” Lefebvre chooses “resiliency” to describe the mood of today’s Minnesota dairy industry. “Minnesota dairy farmers are just smart about how they are

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Originating back to the annual meeting of the Minnesota Milk Producers Association being held in conjunction with the St. Cloud Dairy Expo in 2003, the Midwest Bob Lefebvre Dairy Expo continues to grow with a record number of exhibitors and also financial sponsors for the Nov. 26-28 event, according to Bob Lefebvre, MMPA executive director. He credits the ongoing success to a two-day agenda that is packed with good speakers, good topics, a trade show and support from the commercial and financial world. “Our educational program is great thanks to participants from Extension, the University world, and noted speakers from private industry. This year Steve Gilliland, one of North America’s most sought-after speakers and author of ‘Enjoy the Ride,’ challenged the audience on how to recognize their dreams.” Properly labeled as the Midwest Dairy Expo, this event now draws from Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota and even Canada. The trade show, with 150-plus exhibitors, and the diversity of speakers and issues is a crowd-puller. One such panel presentation this was “Managing Hispanic Labor ... is it about the culture or the rules?” Moderated by Jorge Delgado, a thirdgeneration dairy farmer from Ecuador, South America, he is now a member of Alltech’s On-Farm Support Team specializing in labor management. Panel members were Dwight Hasselquist and Jose Ramirez of Willow Dairy in Salix, Iowa, and Garrett Luthens and Gilvan Da Silva of Skyview Dairy of Hutchinson, Minn. Willow Dairy is a 2,500-cow Holstein operation on a 3-times-a-day milking schedule in a double-32 single exit parlor. Skyview is a 1,200-cow operation.

years ago and purchased Blue Diamond five years ago. “Before we were even engaged, I decided that if we ever milked cows, we would be ‘Blue Diamond Dairy’,” Sadie

said. The name is a combination of the names of the dairies where Glen and Sadie grew up. “Blue diamonds are the toughest substance on earth, and they’re also very beautiful,” Sadie said. “After farming, I really appreciate the symbolism and the need for a certain toughness to be sustainable in this industry.” The Minnesota Milk Producers Association named Blue Diamond Dairy near Melrose Minnesota’s 2012 Producer of the Year at the recent Midwest Dairy Expo in St. Cloud, Minn. Each year Minnesota Milk recognizes one outstanding dairy operation as the Producer of the Year for having a proven commitment to the dairy industry, managing its farm for future generations, and for being active in their local community. Today, the Frericks own 75 cows, plus a small flock of laying hens and an assortment of other farm animals. Blue Diamond Dairy is what they call a “hybrid dairy,” where the herd lives and grazes outside in the warm months and moves inside during the freezing months, eating mixed ration. The Frericks’ primary goal is to constantly make the farm better for the animals, the environment, their family and their community. “Most of the first decisions we made after purchasing our farm focused on improving animal comfort and reducing our farm’s environmental footprint,” Glen said. “All of the improvements we’ve made to our farm in the past five years have also stimulated economic activity within our community.” A few of the initial improvements included outfitting the barn with better stalls, ventilation and lighting and a manure storage system. These

upgrades allowed Glen and Sadie to then focus on improving forage quality, animal health and milk quality. Another goal of the Frericks’ is to open the dairy to the public, which they have been able to do recently and plan to do more of going forward. Last fall, they held a training session for energy auditors on the dairy, and this summer the family hosted a troop of Girl Scouts from St. Paul who camped in the yard, toured the farm and learned about dairy farming. “It is a great honor to be named Producer of the Year. There are so many deserving dairy farms in Minnesota — we are very humbled to be chosen to represent Minnesota’s dairy industry,” Sadie said. “We will continue to look for ways to share our farm and our story with our consumers and our community.” “Blue Diamond Dairy is a terrific example of the next generation of dairy farmers,” said Bob Lefebvre, MMPA executive director. “The family’s commitment to constantly improving their operations in every way is a trait everyone in the industry can learn from.” To learn more about Blue Diamond Dairy, log on to MidwestDairy.com. When combining both production and processing, Minnesota’s dairy industry has an annual output value of $11.6 billion and an employment impact of more than 40,000 jobs, according to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Approximately 99 percent of Minnesota’s 4,325 dairy farms are family-owned. This article was submitted by the Minnesota Milk Producers Association. For more information, log on to www.mnmilk.org. ❖


EXPO, from pg. 9B approaching their business. Yes it’s a family business and a way of life but they want to enjoy the ride each single day so being smart is key to success.” Like most observers, he noted that dairying is a black-ink proposition these days but it could be better. “But it’s not just about money. It’s a business and a family operation that has good strong morals and character. That’s why I enjoy serving dairy farmers.”

Minnesota dairy farm numbers are just slightly over 4,000, but still slowly declining. With each cow contributing about $10,000 economic value to a local economy, dairy is a tremendous pump primmer for the Minnesota economy. “My mission is to let those outside the dairy industry understand this contribution and value it for what it is,” Lefebvre said. ❖
