Letter: What will be your farm’s community legacy? who wish to move to or live in our area? What is the legacy we want to leave for the next generation of farmers? We all want the next generation of farmers to succeed, just as the generations previous to us wanted us to succeed. Are we leaving them with the opportunity to do so? Can anyone who wants to farm have that opportunity? Shouldn’t someone who wants to farm have that opportunity? I was able to farm for two simple reasons. Reason No. 1 — my family supported me. However, my parents did not farm enough land to support two families. The other reason I was able to farm was because of two landowners. Both valued helping a young farmer as much as they valued “top dollar.” In return, I have treated their land with the care and respect I would as if I owned it. Because

of this, and because I raise crops for specialty markets, they have both been rewarded financially as well. As land ownership changes hands, are our values being accurately and honestly reflected? When you see land changing hands, does it show to others what we truly value? Without creative transition solutions, where will the next generation of farmers worship, shop and send their kids to school? Will they be able to farm at all? What are some ways we can show our values and ensure our legacy — not just financially, but also in other ways — when we transition our farm to the next generation? This question can be quite hard to answer.

OPINION

However, there is a large and continually growing number of examples of creative ways that retiring farmers have found to transition their land to new farmers. There are all sorts of different examples that have allowed retiring farmers to ensure that their farm’s financial, family and community legacy is preserved for the next generation. I know, without a doubt, that if we look hard enough, we can all find ways to ensure our legacies in a way that truly reflects our values.

To the Editor: We often think of our legacy as related to our farm’s financial success. Our legacy will show how we were able to weather hard times — floods, droughts, hot weather, cool weather, low prices, pests, weeds, the farming crisis of the ’80s, changes in production methods and other enormous challenges. Our legacy will show that not only did our farm survive, it prospered. Maybe it even grew in number of acres or livestock. These are all important parts of our legacies. But, what is our legacy in relation to our community? What is our legacy in relation to all of those pieces of our community that make it the place we love, and make it what it is? What is the legacy we leave for those

Cover story

Wild Alaska! Salmon fishing dangerous, rewarding Commercial fishing operation a cooperative effort for Minnesota family By TIM KING The Land Correspondent Being a member of a cooperative gave Roger Pietron and his family an opportunity to get a better price for the high-quality wild Alaska salmon they catch each summer. The Pietron family, who spend most of the year near Little Falls, in Morrison County, Minn., are co-founders of Ugashik Bay Salmon cooperative. The cooperative is made up of a number of families who fish in Bristol Bay on the north side of the Alaska Peninsula. Ugashik Bay is a bay within the larger Bristol Bay. Both are part of the Bering Sea. The 42-mile long Ugashik River empties out of the tundra and into Bristol Bay at Ugashik Bay. Roger said Ugashik Bay is a delta formed by the Ugashik and two

other rivers. The sea, bay and river bring the Pietron family to fish camp each June and July to capture the sockeye salmon as the fish return to the Ugashik, and other rivers, to spawn. Pietron describes the fish that come out of the Bering’s cold depths as crowding around a river’s mouth to smell it. They want to find their birth river and go upstream, he said. Most years two to three million salmon make a run on the Ugashik and its spawning grounds. On very

good years up to five million fish will be in the spawning run. “Game and Fish (the Alaska Department of Fish and Game) monitor it very carefully,” he said. To sustain the fishery, the state’s biologists monitor what is called the escapement. Those are the fish that aren’t caught and that reach the river. Salmon lay enough eggs so that only about a third of the run needs to reach the spawning grounds in the lake at the end of the river. The biologists and their assistants actually are on the river monitoring the escapement while the Pietrons, and others, are out in the bay fishing. At times, during the season, fishermen are told to pull in their nets to let more fish through. Pietron said the annual escapement ranges between 500,000 to 1.2 million fish.

“Game and Fish announce the fishing hours for the day on the public radio,” Pietron said. “The notice of the opening can be as short as a few hours. The average opening is about eight hours and then you have to pull your nets in and get off the water. Then you go back in the next day or you may have to wait a couple days.” Fishing and weather are variable while the fishermen are on the water. Sometimes the fish run heavy, in large schools. As the crew pulls in the 300foot long nets they remove salmon, and the occasional flounder, from them. The fish are put into heavy waterproof bags filled with ice and seawater. The bags are in the bottom of the open 24foot long boats. “They come out of the water at a little over 50 degrees,” Pietron said. “We get them down below 40 as soon as possible.” When the boats fill with fish they are loaded onto the ships that transport them to processors. These transport See SALMON, pg. 7


Sustainable management important for company, Alaska cod, is available through a number of cooperative markets. Among them are numerous Twin Cities food co-ops and the Rochester, Brainerd and Bemidji food co-ops. He also sells through Whole Farm Cooperative in Long Prairie. When it comes to preparing salmon, Pietron loves to grill it. He suggests just salt, pepper and a dab of butter. He said it’s also delicious with a teriyaki or barbecue sauce or even with fresh salsa. “We like to bake it too,” he said. Salmon from Bristol Bay comes from the pure clean waters of the Bering Sea and is both nutritious and delicious. The Bristol Bay commercial salmon fishery dates back to the late-19th century and the Pietron family is proud to be part of that history. With continued careful management they will be able to bring Whole Farm Cooperative customers wild-caught Bristol Bay salmon for years to come. In fact, sustainable management of Alaska’s fisheries is actually part of the state’s constitution. Alaskans take that constitutional provision seriously and are recognized worldwide for their sustainable fisheries practices. As part of the top-tobottom system of sustainable management the salmon and cod from the Pietron family and their cooperative are certified sustainable by a thirdparty certifier.

tions of Pietrons have been fishing Bristol Bay for three decades. In the early years their primary salmon market were the canneries. Pietron was never quite happy with that arrangement. “We were catching these beautiful premium quality fish and sending them to canneries,” he said. “Going with the co-op allowed us to maintain top quality and to sell a premium filleted product.” In 2010, the Pietrons formed their cooperative with nine other fishing families. Ugashik Bay Salmon cooperative then entered into a joint venture with Seattle-based seafood processors to form Cape Greig LLC. One result of the collaboration was the purchase of a 190-foot 1,134-ton floating processing ship. The group renamed the ship the Cape Greig. Cape Greig is also a cape in Bristol Bay. “They have a crew of up to 70 people,” Pietron said. “They clean the fish and freeze them quickly. Then the frozen fish are transported to Seattle by freezer ship. Processing them so close to where they were caught maintains their high quality.” The floating processor changed life on the bay for co-op members. The Cape Greig is also a floating grocery store. It brings food and fuel to the Pietrons’ fishing camp, which is miles from any services. It also provides precious ice for the fishermen to maintain the high quality of their fish. Although most of the Pietrons’ salmon is sold through the cooperative’s marketing arrangement with Cape Greig LLC, Pietron brings some back to Minnesota to market. The salmon, as well as Alaska

SALMON, from pg. 6 ships, known as tenders, are often crabbing ships being put to use in their off-season. These tenders can hold well over 100,000 of pounds of fish. “Once you have a few thousand pounds in your boat you have to deliver the fish to the tender or directly to the processing ship,” Pietron said. “They have cranes to take your fish. They weigh them and take their temperature. Then the fish are placed in refrigerated water. If the weather is rough it can be pretty exciting to get your fish onto the tender or processor. You have to be careful and you have to keep track of things.” Weather on the bay can be calm but it is also violent and often unpredictable. The Pietrons will quit fishing when wind speeds hit 45 miles an hour. Although they may be only a thousand feet off shore, quitting fishing for the day is no simple matter. Extremely high tides, commonly varying 20 feet between high and low tide, can make approaching shore difficult or impossible. A boat and its crew can get trapped in the water, with winds occasionally as intense as 80 miles per hour. “It’s not like central Minnesota,” Pietron said. “It’s often overcast and you can’t see the weather coming. It can switch in just a few minutes. When that weather does come you have to pull your nets in. That can take an hour and a half. Then you have to deliver your fish to the tender or processing ship. They are usually a couple of miles away in deep water.” It is difficult and demanding work, but two genera-

Pesto-infused salmon on the grill a simple treat Seldom is something simple to make, and at the same time, impressive to serve. Today’s recipe definitely qualifies, especially if you are a lover of fresh pesto. Every spring we plant basil in a gardening pot and place it on our deck. Keeping it watered throughout the summer will produce more basil than you can imagine, but the key is to keep it watered. If you like pesto, put a potted basil plant on your list of “to-dos” for next spring. And there is a bonus. Pesto is awesome to freeze for the winter, giving you that fresh taste of summer when the thermometer tells you the cold season has set in for a while.

If you are interested in seeing a video I shot for this dish, go to my YouTube channel at YouTube.com/BBQMyWay and place “pesto salmon” in the search field. Liz’s Pesto Recipe 3 to 4 cups of fresh basil leaves 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/2 cup pine nuts 2 to 4 cloves of garlic (depends on how garlicky you want your pesto) 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 1 1/2 tsp. black pepper Coarsely chop the basil and garlic. Place all ingredients except the oil in a food processor or blender with the basil and garlic. Pulse for a minute, and then slowly drizzle oil onto the dry ingredients, as you continue pulsing the mixture. Scrape down the sides and pulse again. Add additional oil if needed until it reaches the consistency you desire. (It should not be runny, but more of a paste.) Take two pounds of a boneless salmon fillet (with the skin preferably) and slice into serving sizes. Lightly salt and pepper the fillets. Take a tablespoon or so of pesto and smear it directly on the flesh side of the salmon. Grill preparation and cooking Seafood is a bit tricky, but don’t let it scare you. If this is your first time, it is really important to buy salmon with the skin on. Either way, set up the grill

with indirect heat, meaning there are hot coals bunched on one side of the grill. Sprinkle the coals with wood chips. Once the grate has been over the hot coals for a couple of minutes, aggressively clean the hot portion with a steel brush. Spin the grate around and do the same thing with the other side of the grate. Take a wad of paper towel and drizzle olive oil on it. Wipe down both sides of the grate. Be careful, obviously the hot side will be very hot. The oil will help prevent the fish from sticking. Place the salmon skin-side down on the cool side of the grill. Place the lid on the grill and allow to cook for 10 minutes or so. After 10 minutes, move the salmon (with a highquality spatula) to the hot end of the grill, flesh side down. If flaming starts, place lid on grill. This will add color and texture to the salmon. The key is to handle the fish as little as possible until it is done. This final stage will take no more than five minutes. Bring it inside and enjoy. Oh, and this recipe could be used with any fish you like to grill, so if salmon isn’t your favorite fish, use the same technique with your fish of choice.

NPPC’s Dierks: U.S. pork industry still globally competitive world issues. He said that with 27 percent of U.S. pork now being exported, the next farm bill has to avoid cataclysmic occurrences in foreign trade. Those exports amounted to $55 per pig value. That’s why elimination of duties on pork trucked to Mexico was such a major achievement. Free trade agreements with Korea, Mexico and perhaps a growing number of Asian countries are on the NPPC’s agenda. Dierks said the Japanese prime minister wants his country included in the pending TransPacific Partnership Agreement. Dierks sees the TPPA as the biggest export opportunity for the U.S. swine industry. “We’ve got a world population spiking to 8 billion and soon 9 billion. A growing question is how do we feed them? Does the U.S. have a moral responsibility to feed the world?” Dierks asked. In 1972 the United States was the biggest supplier of soybeans into world trade. Also in 1970-75 the U.S. imported more pork than it exported. It wasn’t until 1995 that the U.S. pork industry became a net exporter. Along with those free trade agreements is the importance of being a dependable supplier. Plus food safety issues are now inherent in food exports of any kind, pork included, Dierks said. He also noted that the Japanese farm lobby is strong. “But you have to remember that Japan is now a country of 130 million people. Food security is a big deal over there but I don’t suggest that issue will lessen the ‘political power’ of the Japanese farm sector.” What’s the long-term impact of China on the U. S. swine industry? For several years China has been the largest pork producer in the world, and they do have a stated goal of becoming self-sustaining in pork production for their huge population. But he thinks the challenge for China will be not enough arable land to fulfill this ambition.

“Multiply the U.S. population by four; then attempt to position all of the agricultural land in the U.S. into the area east of the Mississippi River,” Dierks said. “That’s the density challenge already faced in China.” He thinks China will continue to be a market for U.S. corn and soybeans but not so for U.S. pork. His logic says debone our pork carcasses at U.S. packing plants and send container pork to China rather than bulk shipments of corn and soybeans. “It’s somewhat a transportation efficiency issue,” Dierks said. Even with increasing incomes and more diversified tastes in the eating habits of the Chinese people, he doubts the United States will be supplying China with a quarter of their pork. “Remember China is five times the size of our pork industry. So just a 1-percent increase in domestic consumption of U. S. pork in China would require 1/20th of all our U.S. production. Anytime you multiply 1.3 billion (China’s population) by 1 percent it’s a big number.” How does a stagnant world economy impact the future of meats? He said the slowness seems to be having more impact in developed nations such as the United States and Europe. But in less-developed countries where incomes have been increasing, the first trend for those people is to improve their diet. “And that first improvement they typically make is to increase protein in their diet, in the form of meat,” Dierks said. He said that 2011 was a record year of U.S. pork exports, and that it looks like 2012 will set another record. “Tough going right now for pork producers, but long-term I’m optimistic,” Dierks said. “We’ll have international markets as long as some cataclysmic event doesn’t happen.” Dierks was interviewed at a December meeting of Minnesota Pork Producers Association. ❖

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Even though economic struggles continue around the globe, the U.S. pork industry will still be a major competitor in world meat production. “We’re as competitive as hog producers anywhere in the world,” according to Neil Dierks, CEO of the Neil Dierks National Pork Producers Council. Crumbling live markets and higher feed costs have squeezed profits totally out of the picture for many swine producers, however. Last season’s drought only exacerbated the situation, Dierks said, and if that continues into the 2013 season it poses serious ramifications, especially with competition likely from Brazil. So what’s positive about the U.S. swine industry? Infrastructure is a big one. “We’ve got roads and a highway system that quickly and effortlessly lets us move production to markets. Brazil still doesn’t,” Dierks said. But he’s concerned about severe regulations possibly ramping up in the hog industry. Already individual sow housing is banned in Australia and the United Kingdom. “That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do things right, but we need to guard against burdensome regulations,” he said. “We need to become more transparent to the American consumer contrary to biosecurity issues.” He acknowledged that Brazil appears to be having a great crop production year. That could mean an increasing livestock industry, hogs included. But Brazil has some disease challenges within their hog industry that seems to be slowing their export abilities. Dierks suggested U.S. producers think less about feed delivery issues and more about what’s ahead in

Frederickson: Water to become contentious issue

Ag commish addresses state of agriculture at Minnesota Organic Conference By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer In view of the “golden years” of economic prosperity that much of agriculture has enjoyed the past three years, will the new Minnesota legislature be responsive to the concerns of Minnesota agriculture this session? Dave Frederickson Perhaps that’s a tough question to throw at Minnesota’s Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. But this seasoned pro thrives on such challenges. “Yes, these good times for agriculture logically do impact the thinking of our elected officials when they get into discussions on ‘farm stuff,’” Frederickson said, but he pointed out that the budget and program activities of the MDA aren’t tied to how well or how poorly Minnesota farmers are doing.

“I’ve already had discussions with numerous members of the Legislature,” he said. “I’ve sat down with most of the key committee chair people and I don’t anticipate any real issues as we budget the next two years of our MDA activities.” Some programs might come under scrutiny because we’re in a budget squeeze, Frederickson said — he suggested that all state departments should shed some skin if that’s what needed to generate a balanced state budget for the next biennium. Issue of water When questioned about the issue of water quality and water usage, Frederickson said that water is likely to be a contentious issue if/when new bills are introduced this session. Water was a focal point at the recent Minnesota Organic Conference, with noted University of Minnesota Extension climatologist Mark Seeley pointing out that organic growers today are operating in a climate disparity totally dif-

ferent than their predecessors. Frederickson suggested it’s going to be a challenge to identify quantitatively the culprits involved in water quality issues. “But that doesn’t mean we won’t have those discussions,” he said. “The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is engaged in a Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certification program. This cuts across all participants pulling together so that we don’t see regulations come down hard on farmers. “This is going to be a voluntary program asking that producers step up and collectively work with MDA. We will make every effort to meet the challenge and in the process assure water quality for all Minnesotans. But for that certainty let’s focus on BMPs (best management practices) that will be good not only for this season but for future generations.” Growing conference His take on the 2013 Minnesota Organic Conference? “Well, it just gets bigger each year,” Frederickson said. “I can’t tell you where we rank across the See FREDERICKSON, pg. 11

Grazing gaining as DNR opens land for livestock By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer With nearly 20 percent of Minnesota’s landscape now owned by the state’s Department of Natural Resources, it seems somewhat logical that cattlemen who are getting squeezed for pasture land, because growing corn generates more bucks, should have greater access to DNR land for summer grazing. The Grazing Lands Conservation Association had a booth at the recent Minnesota Organic Conference in St. Cloud. The Land talked with Clarence Caraway, GLCA president. Q: Is the DNR still acquiring land? Caraway: Yes, as farmers get older and decide to discontinue farming, turning land to DNR for conversion to “native prairie” is pretty appealing. And DNR pays pretty well. Q: Any problems with this

DNR doesn’t want anyone using the land that sets the land backwards. They want users who can increase the production of this land.

— Clarence Caraway trend? Caraway: Yes, we don’t have native buffalos roaming the prairie anymore. You need livestock on this land to keep it healthy. I’m talking keeping the soil active, growing and even helpful for the deer. Q: How does that work? Caraway: Every time a hoofed animal steps it makes an impression in that soil. And that’s not compaction.

That’s bringing light and oxygen to a deeper part of the soil; not just the surface. This “churning up” of the soil puts life into the soil. You’ve created an atmosphere for the microbiological “bugs” in the soil to work better and that in turn increases the vegetative growth. In essence, you’re increasing the productivity of the soil. Q: So how many acres have DNR now permitted to livestock producers for grazing? What’s the charge? Caraway: It varies from area to area. There’s no set policy nor is there a set rental rate. But I do know that Mark Hayek, the Natural Resources Conservation Service grazing specialist at Thief River Falls, Minn., has about 15,000 acres of DNR land now fenced and into cattle grazing production. Rentals vary considerably but $30 to $60 per acre would likely capture most. Q: How does DNR qualify persons for “usage” of their land? Caraway: DNR doesn’t want anyone using the land that sets the land backwards. They want users who can increase the production of this land. We’ve taken DNR land and established

paddocks, both grazed and ungrazed paddocks, side by side, and then set up motion cameras. What did the camera show us? The wildlife followed the livestock. The deer, the rabbits, the fowl followed the livestock. There was no wildlife in those paddocks that weren’t grazed. Q: And why is this happening? Caraway: Because the vegetation in the non-grazed paddocks had no feed value. You’re talking weeds, buck brush and rough vegetation that just didn’t interest wildlife. Put cattle or sheep on these grounds and the “junk vegetation” disappears and you soon start having productive soils growing good-tasting forages. Q: So why doesn’t DNR make more land available for grazing? Caraway: They are but it moves slowly. It’s easy to be overly protective but in the process ignore the real benefits. It’s somewhat true, too, that DNR has so much land that they can’t monitor it properly. We’re making progress. We need to pool our collective knowledge and work together. ■ See GRAZING, pg. 14

THE LAND, FEBRUARY 1, 2013

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Ken Varland, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources regional wildlife manager at New Ulm, said that in his Southern DNR Region, Cooperative Farming Agreements in 2012 totaled 15 covering 1,677 acres. He sees this number increasing in the next several years. Any cattleman interested in possible grazing on DNR lands should contact the area wildlife manager in their vicinity. Names can be obtained via a PDF file on the DNR website — http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/contact/wildlife_managers.pdf — or log on to the main DNR website at www.dnr.state.mn.us. Rental rates for grazing? “We use a barter arrangement and there are currently no rental feeds for the agreement. Instead the cattle producer gets the grass and DNR gets the habitat management benefits,” Varland said. He added that some areas use an ag lease arrangement. Each agreement has its own specific requirements and in some cases cattle producers will have to supply fencing which generally is temporary electric. Varland also said that the goal of grazing is to introduce some disturbance to the grassland site to improve wildlife habitat quality. Each site has a grazing plan geared to desired habitat outcomes following the grazing (species composition, stand vigor, desired nesting and brood cover needs, etc.). The habitat outcomes dictate the timing, duration and intensity of the grazing. Often the grazing is done in a single year but may need to be repeated every few years.

With mentoring I can help a young cattleman not make the same mistakes I made.

— Clarence Caraway management. These mentors are donating their time but are willing to discuss grazing and forage management; fencing; livestock watering systems; livestock movement; objective/goal setting; and economics and record keeping. U.S. Department of Agriculture data indicates about 2.5 million acres of Minnesota crop land is grazing land. “When I started in the cattle business,” Caraway said, “$450 an acre was the most I could pay for pasture land to have a cow pay for the cost. Now we’ve got pasture land and hunting land sell-

ing for $2,000 an acre. Your cash flow projections on your cows just don’t work. “With mentoring I can help a young cattleman not make the same mistakes I made. I learned, for example, that by rotational grazing I can run 30 percent more cattle on the same acres. DNR needs to understand these issues.” Cattlemen aren’t going to put up fences on this DNR land unless they have at least three-year leases. Some organizations, such as the The Nature Conservancy are putting up their own fence so working with them is an option. Membership in GLCA is $20 per year.

FARM & COMMERCIAL GRAIN DRYERS

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

By CAROLYN VAN LOH The Land Correspondent People driving through the countryside of rural Minnesota have probably seen a colorful billboard proclaiming “Minnesota Farmers Care.” Ken Floren of Litchfield, Minn., likens those billboards to “preaching to the choir” because most of the people traveling state and county roads realize that Minnesota farmers are good stewards of their land and take good care of their animals. Floren worked full time in the metropolitan area until he retired. “I was a weekend farmer with my dad,” he said. “When I retired at 65 years of age, I began farming full time.” He also joined the Meeker County Farm Bureau and serves as the county’s promotion and education chairman. Early in 2012 his county Farm Bureau board was discussing ways to promote agriculture by “preaching to the audience.” While working in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for many years, Floren remembered seeing metropolitan transit buses moving around the city with advertising banners on their sides. He suggested that putting an agricultural message on buses would reach the audience the board wanted to reach: metro-

Now, after getting the groundwork completed to hold the inaugural hunt, plans are to make the adventure an annual event that can be offered to other area wounded veterans through the local Wounded Warriors chapter.

Cattle market erratic lately

Keep corn-on-corn yield drag in mind

The following market analysis is for the week ending Jan. 25. CORN — After beginning the holiday-shortened week on a bright note, corn drifted toward the lower end of the recent trading range as it wrestled to find something to propel it to the next level. It seemed most of the news was just a rehash confirmation that corn export demand is dismal, South American crops are not in the bin yet, and something needs to happen to push us out of the recent range. Weekly export sales need to average 15.6 million bushels per week to attain the U.S. DepartPHYLLIS NYSTROM ment of Agriculture forecast for CHS Hedging Inc. 950 million bushels of exports. St. Paul This week’s sales were a measly 5.5 million bushels for old crop and 2 million for new crop. Thus far, weekly corn sales have only surpassed 10 million once in the last six weeks. Total commitments are down 50 percent year on year when the USDA is showing a 38-percent decline on the balance sheets. Many will expect the USDA to trim the export category on their February report. This situation could be partially offset by any delay in South American shipments. Reportedly, Brazil’s corn boat lineup is record large for this time of year. The Rosario Grain Exchange raised their corn production figure for Argentina from 24 million metric tons to 26.5 mmt and compared to the USDA’s 28 mmt estimate. A leading ethanol company announced they will close a 46-million-gallon Missouri plant at the end of

It has been a rocky and erratic January in the livestock trade. Both cattle and hog markets have had their ups and downs in price movement. As February approaches, both of these markets will continue to see a lot of volatility and price movement in both directions. The cattle market has been particularly erratic as of late. After a fairly quick and large decline in prices, the market now appears to be stabilizing. A drop in beef cutouts plus the closing of a beef packing plant in Plainview, Texas, precipitated the rapid decline in prices on both the JOE TEALE futures and cash. Broker However, on Jan. 25, the U.S. Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. Department of Agriculture released a monthly Cattle-onFeed Report which indicated the following as of Jan. 1: on-feed, 94 percent; placed during December, 99 percent; marketed in December, 98 percent. This report was seen as friendly as placements were below pre-report guesses, while the marketed number was above expectations. The cash and futures had already begun to recover from the recent sell-off before the report, but this will add to the bullish sentiment. With the beef cutouts now below $190 per hundredweight, the question will become will demand resurface and eventually push prices higher. For the short term this is entirely possible. However with the advent of the increase of additional taxes and the decline of disposable income, the consumer will be squeezed making less likely that demand will substantially increase.

The winter weather this year has been atypical for Minnesota. The lack of significant snowfall for much of the state has left many fields uncovered and subject to the harsh winds. More concerning is the dry conditions that exist in many of the growing areas of the state. Informa, a private research firm, is forecasting that U.S. farmers will plant 99.303 million acres of corn this spring. Additionally, they are forecasting that 78.777 million acres of soybeans will be planted. We expect that the 76 million acres that were in soybeans last year will be TOM NEHER planted to corn. This leaves 23 AgStar VP & Team Leader million acres that will have to be — Grain Industry taken from other crops or planted Rochester, Minn. as corn-on-corn. These continuous crop corn acres could be subject to a yield drag of 10 to 15 bushels per acre. So if one is normally growing 185 bu./acre corn, they could be looking at a yield of 175 to 170 bu./acre yields. This yield drag at current new crop prices would reduce revenue by $60 to $90/acre. The cost of production would also be higher on these acres as they would require more tillage, fertilizer and root worm protection. These extra costs could run from $60 to $90/acre more than the traditional corn-soybean rotation. As margin management calculations are prepared, it’s important to account for these extra costs along with the lower revenue. With the current dry soil conditions and the poten-

Beans survive choppy week to extend uptrend NYSTROM, from pg. 19 the month due to a shortage of local corn and negative margins. Weekly ethanol production was up 8,000 barrels per day to 792,000 barrels/day this week, but we need to average closer to 808,000 to reach the USDA forecast of 4.5 billion bushels of corn for ethanol. The Jan. 25 cattle-on-feed report will cast a shadow over corn with its less-than-expected on-feed number of 94 percent versus 95 percent expected and placements of 99 percent versus 103 percent estimated. On the positive side, basis levels are beginning to firm with extremely slow grower sales. OUTLOOK: The recent trading range from $7.12 1/4 to $7.35 remains intact, ending the week in neutral. March corn was down 6 3/4 cents for the week, settling at $7.20 3/4 per bushel. The December contract at $5.84 1/4 was off 6 1/4 cents for the week. Dismal export activity, the possibility that more ethanol plants may curtail production, and the big Brazilian export line-up may limit the near-term upside, but domestic demand and minimal producer sales should keep basis firm and block any extreme sell-offs. SOYBEANS — Soybeans managed to extend the uptrend after a choppy trading week. The March contract traded to its highest level in a month before retracing into the $14.08 to $14.60 range. Underlying support to the soy complex continues to be the strong export pace. Weekly export

cent last year, with reports of yields running as expected at 44.5 bushels per acre. Safras upped their Brazilian production number from 84.3 mmt to 84.7 mmt. Argentina, wet too early in the season, is now facing their fifth week of dryness. Warmer temperatures may also be coming into play. Oil World did cut their Argentine production estimate by 1 mmt to 52 mmt (USDA is 54 mmt). OUTLOOK: March soybeans gained 11 3/4 cents for the week, closing at $14.41. November beans at $13.03 were 10 3/4 cents higher for the week. How Brazil will be able to perform on their export program, Argentina’s weather concerns, the possibility of sales switching from South America back to the United States, and firming basis levels give the edge to keeping a risk premium in the market. The larger range for March beans is $14 to $15 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending Jan. 25: Minneapolis wheat fell 9 cents for the week, Chicago lost 14 3/4 cents and Kansas City declined 14 1/4 cents. Nearby crude oil at $95.88 was down 16 cents, heating oil was up almost a half cent, gasoline jumped up 7 1/2 cents and natural gas dropped 12 1/4 cents. The U.S. dollar index was off 0.298 ticks at 79.738. The USDA’s first ideas on the 2013-14 crop year will be revealed at the Ag Outlook Forum Feb. 21-22 in Washington, D.C.

sales were 14.1 million bushels old crop and 21.9 million new crop. Next week’s new crop sales will also be unusually large after China bought 510,000 mt and unknown bought 113,000 mt of new crop soybeans. China also purchased 120,000 mt of optional origin new crop beans. Is this protection against a possible replay of last year’s drought situation? Total export commitments are now at the 90-percent level of the USDA’s yearly projection. Bean sales are up 27 percent year-on-year when the USDA has a 1 percent decline penciled in the balance sheets. Meal sales are up 43 percent from a year ago when the USDA is forecasting an 11-percent decline. Oil commitments are the most impressive, up 270 percent from a year ago with the USDA predicting a 47percent increase. The status of South American weather will exert an increasing influence over price direction in the next few months. Brazil’s current boat lineup is reportedly the largest ever for this time of year. With record boat lineups in both corn and beans, logistical problems developing is likely. And just to make things interesting, Brazil passed a new law restricting drivers to eight-hour work days that could drive up the cost of shipping 50 percent during harvest. Early harvested beans from northern Brazil are being counted on to fulfill that demand and if the rainy pattern continues, shipping delays could push sales back to the United States. The Mato Grosso region has harvested 7 percent of their bean crop as compared to 6 percent on average and 3 per-

TEALE, from pg. 19 Producers should take heed in the fact that inventories of cattle are on the decline, but at the same time demand for beef is also on the decline. Therefore, price protection should not be overlooked when opportunity presents itself. The hog market has been a bit more stable than the cattle market of late. Hog prices have been improving overall since the low made in September. The hogs appear to be driven by a renewed demand for pork products, and packers have been fairly aggressive in bidding for live inventory over the past few months. Pork cutouts have been stable to rising and the volume in pork product has been extremely good reflect-

ing in the stronger prices since September. Hog numbers seem to have declined during this period and with the cold weather this has combined to reduce the available numbers ready for market. Comparing beef cutouts to pork cutouts, it is no surprise that the value in meat is slanted toward the pork products. Considering the slow economic conditions that exist, the retailer and the consumer have moved more toward the pork products to capture the better value pork. While the outlook for hog prices looks relatively good, the fact that demand could shift once again to another protein source could limit how far prices can advance. Producers should remain aware of market conditions and protect inventories as warranted. ❖

NEHER, from pg. 19 tial for another dry growing season, it’s important to consider the drought tolerance of corn and soybeans. Would the yield drag be significantly larger on cornon-corn acres in dry growing conditions, than it would be with corn grown in the corn-soybean rotation? The answer is a resounding yes. The yield drag would be significantly larger on corn grown continuously, year to year in a drought. As I ran the numbers through my margin manager calculator, it always looked like the profitability was in growing corn over soybeans. Yet, when I run the yield drag numbers and the higher cost of production

into my calculator the advantage to corn starts to slip away on these corn-on-corn acres. This is the case even before I try to factor in the additional yield drag in dry growing conditions. So the question begs to be asked: will U.S. farmers really plant 99.303 million acres of corn? If they make their planting decisions by the numbers, the answer may be no. Yet many make planting decisions by what they like to grow and what worked last year. Farmers like to grow corn and they made a bundle of money growing it last year. Crop insurance also provides a sense of security in growing corn. Only time will tell. ❖

An additional $9.3 million per year for two years will be placed in a fund to guarantee stronger Class I (fluid milk) utilization in Appalachian (No. 5) and Southeast (No. 7) federal orders. A “fairness hearing” on the settlement is scheduled for April 3, at which time dairy farmers can speak on the agreement, according to the DBU.

■ DairyBusiness Update reports that USDA’s Farm Service Agency released additional information regarding the Milk Income Loss Contract program, promising a “start month” relief period for dairy farmers producing more milk than the MILC payment cap of 2.985 million pounds per year. The length of the relief period will be announced later, according to a notice sent to state and county FSA offices on Jan. 24. Many of the details in the notice were already anticipated. Under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, signed into law by President Obama on Jan. 2, virtually all dates regarding MILC payment calculations, price triggers and adjusters and payment caps were changed from “2012” to “2013.” As a result of legislative changes, retroactive MILC payments were triggered for September and October 2012. The September 2012 payment is 59.44 cents per hundredweight. The October payment is 2.37 cents. However, with the low October 2012 payment, the first month of fiscal 2013, of just over 2 cents/cwt., most larger producers would not have chosen to keep October as their “start month,” especially with MILC payments forecast to be higher in 2013. Because producers were not able to make timely

MIELKE, from pg. 22 expect U.S. dairy export value to China could more than double by 2017.” The issue dates back to early 2010 when China revised its dairy certificate as part of sweeping efforts to upgrade domestic food safety, according to the USDEC. The National Milk Producers Federation praised the resolution, calling it a measure that “provides certainty to U.S. dairy exporters in order to enhance U.S.-China dairy trade,” and NMPF praised Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision this week to put the farm bill near the top of the list of things to do in 2013. An NMPF press release called it “good news for America’s dairy farmers, who need leaders in the Senate and House to renew their push this year for a better farm bill.” Sen. Reid introduced the 2013 farm bill as S. 10, making it part of a short list of priority pieces of legislation for action in the Senate. The NMPF said Reid’s decision “recognizes that the dairy policy reforms contained in the bill, along with other provisions in the measure, passed with overwhelming, bipartisan support last summer. The bill’s Dairy Security Act will give farmers a better safety net while reducing taxpayer costs at a time when Congress is searching for ways to trim federal spending.”

Recipes that will make you want to eat your veggies Cookbook Corner By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent Quick question: Who among us should really eat more vegetables? Answer: Probably all of us. Even many vegetarians don’t eat enough vegetables. (After all, most junk food is meatless.) It’s not that hard to do, but somehow we just don’t. With those two facts in mind — we should eat more veggies, but don’t — a new cookbook, “Eat Your Vegetables” by Arthur Potts Dawson (Octopus Books), proposes to help us out by presenting simple, interesting and inspiring vegetable dishes we can all relate to. Most everything that comes out of the ground turns into comfort food in Dawson’s capable hands, and veggies often become the stars of the plate instead of being relegated to side-dish status.

Here are some sample recipes to whet your appetite and get you thinking about your next grocery list. ■ Fancy steak houses often serve creamed spinach with their high-priced meals, and if you taste this next dish you will see why. The slightly bitter flavor of spinach is mellowed by the cream sauce and seasonings, making a perfect pairing with red meats, especially a really good steak. Creamed Spinach with Garlic and Shallots 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 shallots, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 4 pounds 8 ounces raw spinach Juice of one lemon

going to throw in some diced bacon or smoked ham. Four out of four “yums” from the Johnson test kitchen. Braised Curly Kale with Garlic and Soy Sauce 1 pound 2 ounces green curly kale 3 tablespoons virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon chopped fresh red chili 1 garlic clove, chopped 2 teaspoons light soy sauce Salt and pepper Remove any yellowing bits or tough stalks from the kale, then reserve the leaves in cold water. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil and season with salt. Drain the kale, add to the pan, and cook for 6 minutes. Drain again and keep warm. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, add the chili and garlic, and fry gently for about 3 minutes, until the garlic begins to brown. Immediately put the cooked kale into the pan and stir well. Season lightly with pepper and the soy sauce, and cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve warm. ■ The idea behind Kohl Slaw (which is just like regular cole slaw but calls for kohlrabi instead of cabbage as the main ingredient) is to mix up a three-vegetable-and-mayo slaw, then add whatever accouterments you like. In this case, the author added his favorites: capers, pomegranate seeds and pine See COOKBOOK, pg. 27

1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup heavy cream Pepper Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, and cook the shallots and garlic over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, wash the spinach well in cold water, drain and shake off the excess water, then roughly chop. Add the spinach to the pan, increase the heat and cook, stirring well, until the liquid has evaporated. The spinach will be cooked at this stage. Squeeze in the lemon juice, then add the salt and cream. Season with pepper and cook for about 5 minutes, until the cream has slightly thickened. Serve hot, but I’ve eaten this cold as a leftover, and it’s wicked that way, too. ■ The author suggests the next recipe for a variety of greens. I used spinach instead of green curly kale for marvelous results. Both the cooking method and the strong seasonings temper the bitterness you may have experienced with leafy greens before. Next time I’m

Think you don’t like anchovies? Well, think again leaves, trim, then wash and dry in a salad spinner. Place in large bowl. Cut the chicken into large chunks and put into lettuce bowl. Add the baguette croutons, capers and eggs. Pour in most of the dressing and delicately mix together. Plate the salad, sprinkle with the Parmesan shavings and drizzle with the last of the dressing.

Chicken Caesar Salad Dressing 4 anchovy fillets 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese 2 egg yolks 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 garlic clove Juice of 1 lemon 3/4 cup olive oil Salt and pepper Salad 2 chicken breasts Olive oil, for drizzling 1 French baguette 3 hard-boiled eggs 2 heads of Romaine lettuce 6 tablespoons salted capers, soaked in cold water for 10 minutes, drained and squeezed dry 4 ounces Parmesan cheese shavings Preheat the oven to 375 F. For the dressing, put all the ingredients except the olive oil into a blender and blend until you have a smooth paste. With the motor still running, drizzle in the oil, not too much to start with, but adding it more rapidly as the mixture thickens. Check for seasoning and set aside. Put the chicken breasts in a roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes. Cut the bread into 3/4-inch chunks, spread out on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden brown, turning once or twice during cooking, then allow to cool. Shell the eggs and cut into quarters. Separate the lettuce

COOKBOOK, from pg. 26 nuts. Use whatever combination of salty, sour, sweet and nutty you desire. Kohl Slaw 14 ounces kohlrabi 7 ounces carrots 7 ounces white cabbage 6 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 tablespoons capers in vinegar, drained 4 tablespoons pomegranate seeds 2 tablespoons pine nuts Salt and pepper Slice the kohlrabi and carrots into very thin matchsticks. Slice the cabbage very thinly, too. Put all the vegetables into a mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper, and mix together well. Sprinkle in half the capers, pomegranate seeds and pine nuts and mix again, taking care not to crush the pomegranate seeds. Divide the kohl slaw between serving dishes, then sprinkle with the remaining capers, seeds and nuts. ■ Dawson’s Caesar Salad takes you into the process of making authentic Caesar salad dressing, which involves little canned fishes called anchovies that you probably think you hate but you really don’t, especially when they’re mixed with all sorts of other delicious things. The anchovies are what gives Caesar dressing its signature tang, so just get a can and give them a shot. They are extremely salty, so if you test-taste one, be prepared.

Genesis Stained Glass, Browerville, Minn.

with stained glass since she was a child, took her first class in 1978, 35 years ago. Since then, she’s continued to develop her skills working with leaded, fused and fired painted glass. She now teaches her own classes in fused glass to interested groups. Gary’s career as a glass worker hasn’t spanned quite that many years. He and Mary came to Moran Township, between Browerville and Staples, from northern Iowa. For 17 years Gary milked cows and farmed. Then, in 1996, the Schultzes sold their cows. “Gary has been working on glass for 17 years,” Mary said. “That’s the same number of years that he milked cows.” In 1996 the Schultzes began the process of converting the dairy barn into a spacious gallery that now displays beautiful fused glass projects where cows previously stood in stanchions. At the far end of the alley, which used to be filled with straw and hay bales, pitchforks, silage carts and other milking paraphernalia, is the entry to the Schultzes’ heated, spacious and well-lighted workshop. They call their business Genesis Stained Glass. In mid-January they had windows from the Fahlon Lutheran Church, near Nelson, Minn., in Douglas County, spread out on their long workbenches. At one, Gary was carefully removing the deteriorating old leading from the intricately made window. “You see how it’s worn and pitted,” he points out. “The lead lasts between 80 and 100 years.” On another table a window is beginning to be reassembled. Compared to the somewhat muddy color of the glass in the window Gary is taking apart, the glass sparkles brightly. “Most people don’t see how dirty a window is,” Mary said. They do see the difference when the cleaned and restored window is reinstalled. “We restored windows for a church in North Dakota,” Gary said. “After we got it up the priest came and looked up at the window. He asked me if we had put something new in his window. I told him we had just cleaned what was there. He’d been there quite a few years and had never seen all of his window until then.” Genesis Stained Glass does all aspects of stained glass window restoration, and can also create new windows. They can be reached at (320) 594-6585. ❖
