Cow numbers are stablilizing, but it’ll be a ‘long road back’ for cattle feeders By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Beef cow numbers appear to finally be stabilizing, but at barely 28 million nationwide, this is the lowest beef cow count since the 1950s. The all-time high was 45.712 million in 1975. Minnesota accounted for 751,000 that year; by 2012, the number had dropped to 365,000, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture

data. Texas, Nebraska and Kansas continue as the top three states in cattle and calves, but with major cutbacks due to drought conditions the past three years, that ranking might soon be readjusted. “Cow numbers hopefully will stabilize this year but it will be a long road back,” said Roger Wallace, feedlot consultant working the Elkhorn, Neb., cattle feeding area. He said the cat-

tle feeding business has been in red ink for several months; hog production is unprofitable currently. He’s not so excited about the immediate future either. “If corn collapses this fall like some expect, that likely will get priced into the price of calves which is already ramped up because of the shortage of cows,” Wallace said. “We just won’t See CATTLE, pg. 11A

This is indeed America’s most famous and prestigious wine-producing region. Only about an hour’s drive from either San Francisco or Sacramento, this splendid hunk of America’s geography is home to over 400 wineries. Back at my sister’s home we snacked (with wine, of course) on an intriguing root crop called endive. Touched up with Roquefort cheese, humus, chopped nuts and honey, these leaf sprouts are delightfully tasty. After Easter we finally headed east, with home — Olivia, Minn. — our destination. But again detouring off the interstate we made a “potty stop” at the Border Inn in Baker, Nev., the last village before crossing into Utah. The proprietor there is Denys Koyle. This lady is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of sheep production in Utah. Last fall a reporter from the Los Angeles Times came to Baker to interview Koyle as part of a feature series, “Old sheepherders spin poignant yarns.” Denys shared some of that history with me, for a story in a future issue of The Land.

in all including everything from cotton, lettuce, garlic, asparagus, onions, tomatoes and melons to oranges, lemons, pistachios, walnuts, almonds and acres of grapes. Because they are the biggest cattle producer in California, however, anti-ag activists are a constant threat to this showcase cattle farm. You’re in California — what do you expect? While here you are often reminded of the continuing battle for water. A frequent sign along the interstate read: “Valley farms paid 100 percent for their state water allocation but only received 35 percent in 2008, 40 percent in 2009, 50 percent in 2010. Farmers lost over $200 million on water not delivered!” The big banners also listed a website: WaterForAll.com. With agriculture so vital to their economy, I don’t see any solution to this dilemma. Rio Vista, Calif., was our Easter weekend stop with my younger sister and family. Only about 40 miles from the Napa Valley area, this quaint little village sits adjacent to the Sacramento River. Thanks to an immense inland canal and lock system, ocean-going freighters traverse from San Francisco all the way up to Sacramento. This same river provides a huge amount of water that feeds the vineyards, orchards, crop fields and vegetables of this productive area. We did a Saturday drive through much of Napa Valley. It’s smaller than I imagined: only about 40

Curt tells us Havasu has now become a major spring break destination for college students. “We don’t leave the house if we don’t need to during that week-long adventure for the kids,” he chuckled. We entered California at Needles on I-40 and eventually headed north on I-5, a major interstate threading through the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. This is the incredible agricultural powerhouse of California, with miles and miles of crops, orchards and vineyards, plus a few dairy and cattle operations as well. Out here livestock enterprises are mostly of the “mega size” category, meaning 1,000 or more dairy cows or 10,000 or more beef cattle. We did an overnight at Harris Ranch. They offered great food, especially the prime beef provided by their own ranch, and fabulously comfortable rooms. You don’t eat or sleep cheaply at Harris Ranch, but we had decided earlier to pamper ourselves a few times, regardless of the family budget. The Harris Ranch feeds out about 50,000 head of beef yearly at this particular location; two other locations each do another 50,000 per year. All told, they cover approximately 18,000 acres growing a wide variety of vegetable, fruit and nut crops — about 22

That cold, wet, forsaken season I planted every kernel, row and acre with that forsaken planter. But I was more than the corn planter that year; I also was the planter monitor. Four or five times every round I climbed off the tractor to check every sprocket, chain and planter box to make certain it could make it another 400 or so yards. If reassured, I’d climb back on the tractor and off I’d go. For another 400 yards. Then I’d stop, climb down and check it all again. Often on my way back to the tractor I’d smack the implement’s tongue with a hammer just to let it know I still was alert. Late that winter, I took a freezer full of food, a new interest in writing and the lovely Catherine back to the Big U and off to a different future. A couple of months later, my father, threatened with the prospect of planting corn with a machine he had fixed — and everyone else had cussed — daily for 15 years, traded the planter for a six-row John Deere MaxEmerge with a Dickey-john monitor. Had he made the swap in 1978 I might have stayed. Wait a minute, you don’t think ... Alan Guebert’s “Farm and Food File” is published weekly in more than 70 newspapers in North America.

MINDS, from pg. 3A neering career with Martin Marietta. Grand Junction is one of those gems sitting in the middle of nowhere. If you have the opportunity, indulge in the 20-mile excursion of the Grand Monument loop, just outside of town. Spectacular scenery is found around every curve of this incredible mountain drive. Next stop was Breckenridge, Colo., where my oldest son, Michael, and family have a “weekend home.” Colorado Springs is their home during the week. I learned of a sport called mountaineering. With “special skins” fastened to the bottom of your skis you make your way up a mountain, then remove the skins and let gravity guide you back down. Michael and his wife, Eva, are very much into such adventure. No, I didn’t try it, but did enjoy several runs on Peak 8 at Breckenridge with my 6-year-old granddaughter, Ella, who would occasionally slow down so her old granddad could catch up again. Our last stop was in Loveland, Colo., for an overnight with an Iowa State classmate who is now a retired attorney in this beautiful town on the Rockies’ front range. Even with some abundant spring snow, much of this region was still desperately dry. Bob Aasenhus, my attorney friend, said the big Loveland reservoir was down about 18 feet from normal. I noticed farm equipment dealers with big inventories of new machinery, especially tractors, planters and combines. It’s quite obvious that the recent good years of agriculture also occured in this heavily irrigated section of America. We spotted a few center pivots at work in open fields and on a few winter wheat fields looking desperately in need of moisture. But much of the front range of Colorado and the eastern sections of Nebraska and Kansas still appeared drastically dry. A few farmers were doing spring tillage and dust was flying — not a good sign.

The “Buy the Farm” law has been on the books for 35 years and Xcel Energy and the rest of them knew it. But the energy conglomerate backing the project thinks that by using their considerable resources (Xcel Energy alone has 37 registered lobbyists in Minnesota) they can sidestep the law so they won’t have to fully compensate people for moving expenses.

Alan Perish Browerville, Minn.

To the Editor: As a retired dairy farmer, I remember the hard fought battles between family farmers and utility companies over high voltage power lines cutting across Minnesota in the 1970s. One of the outcomes of this was the “Buy the Farm” law. Essentially, this law says that farmers and landowners have the right to require that companies purchase their entire farm if high voltage power lines are forced onto their property. The law was intended to require utilities to fully reimburse farmers and landowners for their land, relocation expenses and lost business.

It’s a good law and an example of public policy that puts the interests of people before the interests of corporations, something we could use a lot more of today. With the construction of the 650mile CapX2020 high voltage power line under way, this law has renewed importance to family farmers and landowners across the state.

Commentary: Billionaire ‘forcing’ climate change Peter Altmeier, recently disclosed that his country’s green energy transition will cost $1.310 trillion dollars. Moreover, the $1.310 trillion would only fund the green energy transition for Germany, a small country with just 82 million people. At the German rate of $15,000 per capita, would the world of 7 billion people look forward to spending $100 trillion for the whole global green transformation? There isn’t that much money in the world, and with green energy limitations there won’t ever be that much. Green energy also costs more to operate. And all of this wouldn’t even reduce CO2 emissions. That’s because there isn’t any really “green” energy. Europe’s solar and wind energy are so erratic they must be backed 90 percent by fossil power plants in “spinning reserve.” The only real “solution” for the CO2 problem is nuclear, which isn’t on anybody’s ballot. Steyer also needs to be aware of the limitations even of a victory at the polls.

There has been only a modest warming since 1940 even with the official thermometers shifting ever more heavily into urban heat islands.The ice records tell us the earth’s temperature naturally shifts, abruptly, by 2 to 4 degrees Celsius roughly every 700 years. The modelers can’t explain why the Modern Warming is different from the Medieval Warming. The current non-warming trend — and possibly a moderate cooling — is likely to last until about 2037 because of a Pacific cooling cycle. Steyer’s billion will run out long before then.

A narrow win like Obama’s last won’t be enough to force an energy policy that’s viscerally opposed by the average American. The shale gas revolution is now in full swing, thanks to America’s private property laws and the public’s recent cheerful experience with “fracking.” Natural gas is far cheaper here than in Europe, and EU chemical and plastics makers are shifting their investments to expand the jobs here instead. It is doubtful that even the Environmental Protection Agency will dare trying to push the shale gas back underground — or that an administration can continue to rule effectively while defending such a rule. Add in the recent discovery of 3 trillion tons of coal undersea off Norway, and recent successes in bringing up natural gas from massive deposits of methane hydrates underneath the Pacific (Japan) and tundra (Alaska).

From the Fields: Plenty of patience, but no panic ... yet The Brandts Ada, Minn.

“Everything’s melted.” Those two words can mean only one thing: field conditions are indeed improving. When The Danny Brandt Land spoke with Danny Brandt on April 29 he was happy to report that the weather had been nice for the previous several days. “Strong winds melted a lot of snow on Saturday,” he said. While fields remain “a little soft” Brandt was hopeful that he could start putting in wheat by the end of the week. He’s finished with fine-tuning equipment, and is itching to hop in the tractor. “Things are ready to go.” Brandt said his seed inventory was coming in, with the remaining balance of the seed expected at the farm by the end of the week. There’s a new addition to his corn planter tractor this year: auto steer. Brandt is looking forward to using the new Case-IH equipment, which utilizes one monitor with multiple screens. Planting isn’t the only thing Brandt is looking forward to. “The next batch of sows are farrowing in the next week,” he said. The June-July farrowing will be done with a pure Duroc boar. This will be the first time “in many years” the Brandt farm has used a Duroc. Saturday was the first time in two months that the area experienced above-average temperatures. With that, Brandt believes “the weather will cooperate with us and give us a decent spring.” And when that decent spring does arrive, he’ll be ready to go.

He said they hadn’t even pulled out one anhydrous tank yet. “I think everybody’s ready,” said Messner, but with more cold, snow and rain forecasted, patience may soon be in short supply. Note: After this story was written the Owatonna area, not far from Northfield, received an additional 12 to 17 inches of snowfall on May 1-2, breaking records for May snow.

Picking rocks. When The Land spoke to Johnson, on May 1, the Starbuck area wasn’t forecasted to get the six to nine inches of snow that parts of southeastern Minnesota Scott Johnson were expecting, but they were looking at some cold evenings. Johnson would like to be out planting, but realizes that “it doesn’t pay to get out there before it’s ready.” He predicted that “things will really pick up next week.” If conditions are right “we might even try (planting) a field or two this week.” Johnson said last weekend’s warm weather was “wonderful.” He knows that farmers in the area, himself included, are extremely close to planting. “A couple farmers are starting to scratch the dirt,” he said. Johnson believes that if he’s able to begin planting on May 6, he’d be two weeks behind schedule. Once planting begins he hopes that with good weather they would be done with corn in seven to 10 days. The fields have “some spots with standing water, but overall (they’re) looking pretty good,” he said. So the

fields are in good shape; if only the weather would shape up as well.

He esti- Chris Messner mated that the Northfield area received eight or nine inches of snow in that storm. Warmer weather afterwards melted the snow, but “the ground is still wet and cold,” Messner said. The Land spoke with Messner on April 30, when he reported that the soil temperature was at 38 F. The forecast was not helping to warm up that soil anytime soon — it was supposed to be wet and cold again. When it comes to progress in the fields, Messner said there’s “pretty close to nothing in our area. ... We could be wet all the way through the weekend.” With no planting going on in the area, he said that some farmers were getting nervous. Messner predicted that May 10 would be the earliest he could get in the field. At Central Valley Co-op where Messner works, they too are ready and wait-

“Weather’s been real nice.” No one in the region had been able to say that for quite some time, but Charlie Charlie Laubenthal Laubenthal reported just that to The Land on April 30. It was so nice, in fact, that Laubenthal started planting corn that day. He wanted to get as much corn planted as he could that day because the forecast for May 1 was for two inches of snow and “cold the rest of week,” with nights in the low 30s. Laubenthal hoped to get “200 acres or better planted today. We’ll run until we can’t run anymore.” He said the fields were good, just “lacking heat.” With good field conditions, Laubenthal estimated he’d be done planting corn in 10 days. Even though they were 10 days behind, he noted that “I don’t panic very easily.” He predicted that if they missed the rain that night, there would be a lot of people planting the next day. In addition to planting, Laubenthal has been preparing an area on the farm for the construction of a hog building. That work consisted of hauling a lot of dirt to get the site ready. The building should be up and housing pigs by the end of July. Laubenthal was hopeful that by the time The Land readers see this report, corn planting will be almost completed on his farm. If not, he admitted he may be “in panic mode.” ❖

Economist: Low cattle prices have time to rebound Although finished-cattle prices that were expected to increase this year for producers remained low in the first quarter, Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt said increases could be on the horizon. Hurt said he earlier had thought that beef production would decline by 3 percent for the first half of the year and that cattle prices would be in the

$130s by now, but that hasn’t happened. “So far this year, beef supplies have been down close to 1 percent,” he said. “That means more beef than we expected, and more beef is certainly one of the contributors to lower cattle prices.” More supply isn’t the only component of the lowerthan-expected beef prices. Additional contributors include a weaker U.S. economy, reduced pork and

chicken exports and high retail beef prices. “The weak U.S. economy has many consumers shopping for value and beef has had higher retail price increases as compared with competitive animal proteins,” Hurt said. “As an example, retail choice beef prices have been at record-high levels this year, reaching $5.30 per retail pound in the month of March.” Over the past six months, beef prices have risen 6 percent more than pork prices, 10 percent more than turkey, 4 percent more than chicken and 7 percent more than eggs. Higher beef prices for consumers, coupled with lower animal exports — pork exports were down by 14 percent in the first two months and chicken exports by 3 percent — have created more competition in the domestic market for beef. Hurt said continued small supplies of beef for the rest of the year suggests a brighter future for cattle prices. “Last-quarter supplies could drop by 6 to 7 percent, with prices rising into the low $130s,” he said. “Firstquarter prices for next year should improve a few dollars toward the low- to mid-$130s. These forecasts are all higher than current futures prices.” If crop yields are closer to normal this year and corn is about $5 a bushel by harvest, those much lower feed prices will stimulate expansion of all animal species. Hurt said with lower feed prices and improved pasture conditions, cattle producers are expected to retain more heifers. These early stages of herd expansion will draw the beef supply down even more and lead to higher cattle prices. “This all suggests better days ahead for both finished cattle and calf prices,” he said.

Sorting the heavy beef opportunities from the challenges the line. In response, the feeding industry more broadly adopted the use of beta-agonists. Those may decrease marbling scores, Stika said, but the best way to mitigate their negative impacts is to feed cattle longer. “How are we going to take these cattle once they’ve hit the plant and add value, or remove the discount that’s associated with them today?” he asked. The industry has already made some adjustments on everything from how many pieces of meat go in a box to cutting methods. “Retail doesn’t use a lot of forklifts and is heavily dominated by unionized labor, so there are certain limits in terms of what those boxes can weigh,” Stika said. Down the road, packing plants are looking at more ways to reduce variation. “How do we make sure the smallest rib that we have is not in the same box with the heaviest rib?” Stika asked. That’s one

common break in boxed beef already, between the largest ribeye areas and the smallest. It’s not just about the middle meats, he said, and the range in product difference continues to grow as carcasses do. Plant logistics and inventory management are the biggest hurdles to implementation. So are increasing carcass weights an opportunity or a challenging issue? “The answer is, it’s reality,” Stika said, “and probably a little of both. It’s allowed us to maintain beef production levels with fewer numbers, but the issues we have are real. If we want to continue to drive beef demand forward, we’ve got to continue to provide more value to our consumer if we’re going to expect them to pay more for it.” Stika spoke at this spring’s Harlan Ritchie Beef Symposium during Midwest American Society of Animal Science meetings in Des Moines. This article was submitted by Certified Angus Beef LLC. ❖

than average. “If they gain better, they eat better, they’re healthier,” Stika said. “Their carcass weights tend to be up and their grades tend to coincide with that.” Data on more than 2 million head in the NBQA records indicate cattle with a marbling score of Modest or higher were 14 pounds heavier than average. That’s not a new trend, Stika said. “But it’s a hot topic right now because we’ve seen a more rapid increase in carcass weight than what we’ve historically been used to.” From 2008 to 2012, the Angus-influenced or A-stamped cattle increased 34 pounds, to last year’s 846 pounds. Economics and genetic improvement are the main drivers. “If I’m a feedyard operating today at 20 percent to 25 percent excess capacity, and I look at the replacement costs of what I have to buy — feeder cattle to replace a pen of cattle that I ship out — the economics, at times, begin to work rather nicely that I just feed those cattle longer,” he said. Many packing plants in an industry at 10 percent to 15 percent excess capacity have tried to increase efficiency by increasing the upper limit on HCW and decreased discounts for those just over

Everyone in the beef chain seems to agree we need more of it. That’s the simple explanation for a trend that shows hot carcass weights (HCW) have increased 200 pounds in four decades. But for all the opportunities that presents, there are many challenges. John Stika, president of Certified Angus Beef LLC, said “the production side is looking for something bigger to cover their increased costs, but the retail and foodservice sides are looking for (more units of) something much smaller that’s easier to manage from a portioncontrol standpoint and a unit-cost standpoint.” Increasing HCW is like adding many more finished cattle. Stika noted CattleFax estimates show such increases from last November into March have made up for 256,000 head of cattle. As the nation’s cow herd keeps falling back, increasing HCW is good news overall for beef marketers. “They would rather have big beef to sell than no beef at all,” Stika said. CAB data and supporting records from the National Beef Quality Audit show that the market is getting more highquality beef in that mix, too. Carcasses accepted for the CAB brand this year have a 7-pound heavier HCW

How beef can compete; higher prices bring higher expectations Eleven to one — those were the odds the beef industry was up against for two decades. “We got $10 in new spending over that 20 years, meanwhile our pork and poultry competitors got $110,” said Nevil Speer, an animal scientist at Western Kentucky University. “You

can’t grow an industry without new revenue coming in, and we basically worked in a stagnant industry for 20 years.” Beef struggled with health perception issues, convenience woes and the challenge of being the most expensive protein in the meat case, he said.

Cows savor the eating process; we should never rush through thinking about important things, either. “Use your tail to swat the annoying things away.” When flies and insects annoy the cow, she keeps that tail close by to use as a weapon of sorts, defending herself against those who would cross her line of patience. Though many a farm wife has wished that she had a tail (thinking it would get her more attention from her farmer husband), we need to learn to rid ourselves of those people and things who bring us down. Swat them away somehow and move on. “Stay with the herd.” Cows know it — we should, too. There is strength in numbers. If one gets out, soon the whole herd will be out. They hunker together, always sticking together no matter what. Wouldn’t it be a great world if we all carried even this one piece of advice with us? “Shout loudly if you become separated from your babies.” Weaning time. Enough said.

When they’re hungry, you know it. When they don’t like what’s happening, you know it. When weaning time comes, you know it. Remember that the squeaky wheel gets the grease — while tempering that with the notion that sometimes the squeaky wheel gets removed, also. “Be suspicious of strangers.” Watching the cows out in the yard is an interesting and peaceful thing. You can stand there and talk to them (hoping that your neighbor hasn’t driven in quietly and brought a video camera to show the white jacket people) and they just stand there, quietly looking at you.

Lessons from cattle: ‘Follow the One who leads you’ TABLE, from pg. 15A lege. Always let your babies know where you are and that you are here for them, and always, always know where they are. “Adapt to your environment.” Cows don’t care where they are living as long as they have food, water and shelter. We can all take a lesson from that humble attitude of gratitude. It doesn’t matter where you are. Home is wherever (and whatever) you make it. “Keep your backside to the winds of life.”

When the world turns colder as fall turns to winter, cows know to stand with their backsides to the wind, and to stand together to stay warm. So when your world turns cold in every other sense, turn your back to it so it doesn’t snuff out the flame from your spirit; keep on walking, and stick with those whom you know will be there with you always. A handful of years ago, our boys’ two young calves got out of their pen at home, and wandered into the corn field next to our farm. My husband chased them for a time and ran out of patience. He came to get me to help, and it was obvious to me

Timely tips for keeping your lawn lush and green gence herbicide to my lawn to control crabgrass? The keys to successful control of crabgrass in lawns are correct timing of the preemergence herbicide application and proper application of the material. Preemergence herbicides must be applied before the crabgrass seeds germinate. If the material is applied too early, crab-

grass seeds that germinate late in the season will not be controlled. If applied too late, some crabgrass seeds will have already germinated. Preemergence herbicides should normally be applied in early to mid-April in southern Iowa, mid-April to May 1 in See LAWNS, pg. 18A

the proper mowing height? Kentucky bluegrass lawns should be mowed at a height of 2 1/2 to 3 inches in the spring and fall months. Mow bluegrass lawns at a height of 3 to 31/2 inches in June, July and August. A higher mowing height in summer helps to cool the crowns of the turfgrass plants, encourages deeper rooting and provides more leaf area for photosynthesis during the stressful summer months. Mowing below the recommended range may scalp the turf and cause the turfgrass to deteriorate. Extremely low mowing heights decrease the total leaf surface area, carbohydrate reserves and root growth, creating a situation where the turfgrass plants are unable to produce enough food to meet their needs. This makes the plants more susceptible to drought, high temperature and wear injury. In addition, the bare areas created by a decrease in turfgrass density increase the likelihood of weed problems. Mowing too high can also create problems. Mowing above the recommended range reduces tillering and causes matting of the grass. Reduced tillering results in fewer and coarser plants, while matted grass creates a micro-environment that encourages disease development. When should I apply a preemer-

Proper mowing practices play a vital role in helping to maintain a healthy, sustainable home lawn. Lawn mowing is only one question horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach answer about lawn care and how to have a lawn with the desired characteristics. How often should I fertilize my lawn? In Iowa, Kentucky bluegrass lawns can be fertilized in spring (April or May), midSeptember, and late-October/early November.The number of fertilizer applications is largely determined by an individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desires or expectations for their lawn. Three applications of fertilizer (the first in spring, the second in mid-September and a third in late-October/early November) would be appropriate for individuals who want a vigorous, dark green lawn. A single application of fertilizer in lateOctober/early November would be sufficient for individuals who prefer minimal fertilization. A moderate fertilization plan consists of an application of fertilizer in mid-September and a second application in late-October/early November. Each application of fertilizer should consist of one pound of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. When mowing the lawn, what is

However, an application of lime to an alkaline soil can raise the soil pH to excessively high levels, reducing the availability of plant nutrients and leading to poor plant growth. There is no need to apply lime to most lawns in Iowa as few have a soil pH below 6.0. Applying lime to lawns with a soil pH above 7.0 may actually be detrimental.

Nature provides some helpful (colorful) clues. Preemergence herbicides should be applied when the forsythia blossoms start dropping or when redbud trees begin to bloom. Crabgrass seed germination typically begins after these events. To ensure the herbicide is applied properly, carefully read and follow the label directions on the package. Also, make sure the spreader has been correctly calibrated and is working properly. Should I apply lime to my lawn? In Iowa, home gardeners should apply lime to lawns only when recommended by a soil test. A soil test will indicate the current soil pH and, if necessary, the amount of lime to apply to the area. The soil pH is important because it influences the availability of essential nutrients. The pH scale runs from 0 to 14. Any pH below 7.0 is acidic and any pH above 7.0 is alkaline. A pH of 7.0 indicates a neutral soil. The optimum pH range for lawns is between 6.0 and 7.5. Lime is applied to acidic soils with a pH

When selecting trees and shrubs for your landscape, always plant several different species to help protect against invasive species or an insect or disease infesting and damaging your plantings. Properly selected and placed trees and shrubs in the landscape can offer multiple benefits to both urban and rural areas. These benefits include producing edible fruit or nuts, saving energy (heating and cooling), protection from the wind or snow, increase property value, protect soil and water resources, increase wildlife habitat, provide living screens and beautify the land. Arbor Day — www.arbor day.org — is celebrated every year on the last Friday in April, and May is Arbor Month. University of Minnesota Extension offers resources to help you decide what kind of trees to plant in your region. The Extension forestry website at www.extension.umn.edu/go/1027 has materials which can help you identify trees suitable for your location. Minnesota residents must consider planting shade trees other than ash, since emerald ash borer was found in the state in 2009. Log on to Extension’s EAB website at www.extension.umn.edu/issues/eab to learn more about EAB and alternative shade trees.

Top 10 grilling goals include coals; charcoals, that is ity grilling utensils made of steel. All you really need is a nice spatula and a good set of tongs. 3.

While those are delicious, try grilling vegetables. Or how about slow smoking a pork butt? Ever tried beer can chicken? Make 2013 your year to stretch your skills. 4. Use charcoal. I know, I know. Tex (my neighbor) gets frustrated that most of my columns deal with real charcoal grilling. I also have a gas grill, and I certainly appreciate its convenience on certain nights. But please, I beg of thee. Break out a real charcoal grill occasionally on the weekends. 5. Involve family and friends in the outdoor cooking process.

Apple, hickory, mesquite and pecan are great woods to start with. 10. Simply put, read. Obviously you are reading this column, and by the way, thank you for that. But in addition to this piece, there are great books out there on the topics of grilling, smoking and making fantastic barbecue. It’s great reading material. I wish you the very best grilling season.

tant as the end result. I would ask that you commit to involving your kids or grandkids. Pass on the legacy and art of outdoor grilling and barbecue. 6. Cut it thick. If you are going to grill pork chops and steaks this year, make a commitment to talk to the butcher and order them properly. Don’t buy the family pack that is so thin you can almost read a newspaper through the cuts of meat. Get the steaks and chops cut to at least one inch thick, and buy them “bone in.” Too thick? Hey, you don’t have to eat the entire steak or chop. Split it with someone. This isn’t rocket science. 7. Set aside one weekend each month to master the art of indirect grilling and smoking. This takes time, but the end result is absolutely delicious. Use this set up to make pulled pork or ribs. Also, this is helpful when cooling those oneinch plus sized chops and steaks. 8. Experiment and make your own rubs and sauces. Google it. It’s easy

THE LAND, MAY 10, 2013

We all know that our teeth are important. We even visit our dentist regularly to have teeth cleanings and oral exams. Keeping our teeth clean is vital to our health and well-being, and that is no different for our pets. “Ideally, you should brush your pet’s teeth daily,” said Johnathon Dodd, clinical professor at Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. “Make sure you are using special toothpaste that is made for pets and is safe for them to swallow. They cannot spit or rinse like we do, so our pets need specific kinds of toothpaste that is not harmful if ingested.” Having your pet’s teeth inspected and cleaned is an important responsibility many owners overlook. This seemingly slight slip of your pet’s dental care could be causing serious problems in your pet’s mouth. Gum disease is the most common disease occurring in pets today. It results from the build-up of soft dental plaque on the surfaces of the teeth around the gums. The bacteria in dental plaque irritate the gum tissue if it accumulates, which leads to infection in the bone surrounding the teeth. After plaque has formed hard dental tartar, calcium salts from saliva that has been deposited on plaque, begins to grow. If the surface of the tooth does not stay clean, tartar begins to form within a few days. The un-brushed tooth provides a surface that boosts further plaque accumulation. If plague is allowed to accumulate, tartar is difficult to remove without dental instruments. For our pets, gum disease means bad breath and painful, irritated gums that can lead to bleeding, loss of appetite and the loss of teeth if the roots have been affected. There is also the possibility that if the bacteria surrounding the root of the tooth gains access to the bloodstream, it can lead to microscopic damage of the heart, liver and kidney.

n interesting piece of history will come to an end this year when Ihlen’s “Post Office on the Porch” closes. That’s not its official name, of course. Officially, it is the Ihlen, Minn., Community Post Office, which is a post office housed in a commercial enterprise. Joyce Rodman became postmaster 35 years ago when she and her husband, Bruce, purchased the town’s grocery store where the post office was located. When they closed the store in the early 1980s, they enclosed the front porch of their house and moved the post office boxes there. For 30 years the Rodman front porch has seen people come and go from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, to pick up mail and get other postal service. The difference is the extra mile the postmaster goes to. The Rodman grocery store was where men would gather for morning coffee with Bruce. Joyce welcomed them to continue having their coffee in her kitchen. She bakes treats and each morning makes coffee. Even after Bruce died in 2005 a group of men has faithfully continued to come, pick up their mail, and walk through the living room to have coffee around her kitchen table. “I told the men they could continue to come for coffee, even after the post office closes,” Joyce said. Ihlen’s population is well below 100, yet there are still about 40 active mail boxes, so Joyce was reluctant to close. But she is 82 years old and, after receiving treatment for cancer, was persuaded by her six daughters that she needed to take more time to spend with family while she still feels good. In January she submitted a letter to terminate her contract with the U.S. Postal Service. It may be a few months while they decide how to provide mail service to Ihlen residents, but the day will come when the Rodman porch is no longer a post office. You would think it would wear on a person, having people coming and going at your home six days a week, not being able to go away without finding someone to fill in. (And all of that for a paycheck that averages out about $2 an hour with no benefits.) No doubt it was inconvenient at times, but that’s not what it’s about to Joyce. It’s about serving people and the community. “I’m going to miss seeing the people,” she said. ❖

The following market analysis is for the week ending May 3. CORN — Corn burst into the week with a 40-cent limit up day on forecasts for a wet, cold week across the Corn Belt. However, by midweek we had given back about half of the week’s gains as the market searched for the next round of buying. July corn partially filled the gap left from the March 28 U.S. Department of Agriculture reports, leaving the upside gap at $6.69 to $6.76. On the other end in July corn there’s a new gap from $6.24 1/2 to $6.25 from April 29. PHYLLIS NYSTROM The gaps will act as bookends for CHS Hedging Inc. St. Paul the near-term range. Weather is king, period. Anyone is more than willing to give you their interpretation of the forecast and its effects on prospective yield, but in the end Mother Nature will do what she wants. Corn planting was only 5 percent complete as of May 28 compared to the 31 percent average. For the week ending May 5, the guess is that less than 15 percent of the planting has been completed. The average for the week ending May 5 (or close) is 47 percent. The trade is already looking down the road with the likelihood that we’ll fall further behind before we see any catch up. The average planting progress for May 12 is 66 percent and at best traders are eyeing only 25 percent to 30 percent to be done. American farmers can get the crop in quickly, but if we’re searching for which field is dry enough, we

The first week in May has brought some interesting developments in the livestock markets. The major thing that is happening, and is evident, is the discrepancies in the cash market prices of both cattle and hogs to the futures market prices. Cash cattle prices have advanced over the past several weeks under fair packer accumulation. Prices have reached as high as $131 per hundredweight basis the Midwest, while the June cattle futures have slipped to nearly a $10/cwt. discount to the high end live price paid. This is an abnormally high discount for this time of the year and has the trade wondering why JOE TEALE the futures are moving in one Broker direction and cash in the other Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. direction. It appears that a deteriorating demand for beef would be the likely cause to this situation; also the fact that the commodity and hedge funds were large longs in the futures and seem to be liquidating their positions. Since last fall the movement of boxed beef has been on a steady decline as other sources of protein and meat have been a less expensive source to the consumer, particularly domestic. Weather may have also played somewhat of a role, as the cooler spring has delayed the grilling season. However as disposable income decreases, the consumer is becoming more price-conscious of their spendable income. All of this despite the fact that there are fewer cattle on feed, which many think should force the price higher. The fact is the supply is more inelastic than

When most ordinary people think of May, they think of May flowers and Mother’s Day. For farmers, May is a month of action. Usually, final tillage is done, along with fertilizer application, planting and chemical application. This year, Mother Nature is again showing us that weather is out of our control. When planting conditions get difficult and the majority of seed is still in the bag, it’s natural for our stress levels to rise. Even if your equipment is ready to roll, there are still plenty of other things to do while Mother Nature takes center stage.

Soybeans march along with corn for general direction NYSTROM, from pg. 1B probably won’t see weekly records for planting. The trade is already chattering about 1 million to 2 million corn acres switching to soybeans. The USDA’s trendline corn yield at the February Outlook Conference was 163.6 bushels per acre. Due to the delayed planting this year it is presumed that early yield forecasts could be decreased at least 2 bu./acre from that trendline. Why did old crop corn react more violently to the weather than new crop? As old crop stocks tighten and new crop bushel availability is pushed further out on the calendar, the old crop stocks become more highly prized also. Last year we needed new crop bushels in August-toSeptember to make it through the year. Weekly export sales once again kept pace on a weekly basis to fulfill the USDA’s 800 million export projection. Sales were 13 million bushels for old crop and 25.8 million for new crop. We need 12 million per week to hit the USDA number and we have achieved that for three weeks in a row. Ethanol production for the week was the highest thus far in the marketing year at 857,000 barrels per day. Weekly ethanol production is running at an annualized grind of 4.575 billion bushels of corn

compared to the USDA’s 4.55 billion bushels. Worth a mention, the hard red winter wheat tour was conducted this week across Kansas. The tour estimated Kansas yield at 41.1 bu./acre compared to the tour’s number last year of 41.2 bu./acre and their five-year average of 42.3 bu./acre. The actual yield in 2012 was 42.0 bu./acre. Production was forecast at 313.1 million bushels versus the tour’s five-year average of 341.3 million bushels and versus 2012 actual production of 382.2 million bushels. Informa Economics updated their wheat projections on May 3; all winter production is projected at 1.529 billion bushels, down 52 million from their last figure. The breakdown is as follows: HRW, 798 million, soft red wheat, 508 million and white wheat at 222 million bushels. OUTLOOK: As mentioned above, the gaps left in the July corn contract will act as near-term support and resistance. As go actual weather and weather forecasts, so will the markets. Will the benefits of recharging the soil outweigh any effect of later planting? July corn soared 41 1/2 cents higher to $6.61 1/4 for the week while December rose 29 1/2 cents to $5.53 1/2 per bushel. For April, corn was down 1.7 percent of value, but year-to-date it is 2.4 percent higher. SOYBEANS — Soybeans marched along with corn for general direction this week, but didn’t leave any gaps on the charts for benchmarking. Basis levels are firm as growers show little interest in marketing remaining supplies. There was a report that a bean crusher in Indiana rolled bids to the November contract this week. The first bean planting progress report is expected on May 6 with traders looking for a 1 percent completion number. A shadow hanging over the soybean market was a lower than expected Purchasing Managers’ Index out of China indicating slower growth. Their PMI fell from 50.9 to 50.6.

China was actively canceling old crop bean purchases this week as weekly old crop sales were net negative 4 million bushels. Even with the cancellations, old crop sales commitments equate to 99 percent of the USDA export forecast. Only 5.1 million bushels are needed per week to reach the USDA figure. However, new crop sales were impressive at 49.3 million bushels. Meal sales continue to lead the charge with 93,300 metric tons old crop and 55,700 mt for new crop. There were no meal or soybean deliveries this week against the May contract as cash is better than delivery. There has been speculation that South American beans will make their way into the United States this summer. While it may work on paper, the timing may be difficult. Could they arrive in time to be useful? And if they make it, what about logistics/cost to move them where they are really needed to be crushed? OUTLOOK: Soybeans struggled this week with negative economic news from China and possible acreage switching due to delayed planting playing against strong basis levels and slower grower sales. First resistance will be this week’s high at $14.23 3/4, then $14.36 1/4 per bushel. The first line of support is a trendline near $13.70, then $13.40 per bushel. Direction will be dictated by nearby weather forecasts and domestic demand. For the week, July beans were up 6 1/4 cents at $13.87 1/4 and the November contract gained 11 cents to $12.21 1/4 per bushel. For April, beans were up 4.5 percent. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending May 3: Minneapolis wheat gained 14 1/2 cents, Chicago jumped 28 1/2 cents higher and Kansas City was 27 1/2 cents higher. June crude oil was $2.61 higher at $95.61, heating oil managed a 1 3/4 cent gain, gasoline fell 1/4 cent and natural gas dropped 18 1/4 cents. The U.S. dollar index was down 0.362 ticks. The Dow surpassed 15,000 for the first time on May 3 after unemployment fell from 7.6 percent to 7.5 percent, the lowest level since 2008.

Cash hogs move higher, following futures TEALE, from pg. 1B demand, which is the greater influence on the determination of the price of any commodity. Which brings out the old adage: The cure for high prices is high prices. Producers should keep aware of market conditions and use common sense when to protect inventories and when to market. The hog market has seen good improvement over the past several weeks as seasonal strength has kicked in. Most of this strength has been developed by the increase in demand for pork over that period. Cutouts have advanced to levels not seen for months, and this has allowed packers to be more aggressive

in the acquisition of live inventory. As a result cash hog prices have moved to higher levels not seen in months with the futures leading the advance. In contrast to the cattle futures, hog futures are carrying a fairly large premium to the cash at the present time, reflecting a good demand for pork products. This is not unusual at this time of the year for the hog market. The caveat here is that from a seasonal standpoint the market normally peaks in the late spring to early summer. This should alert producers to use the premiums to their advantage and protect inventories as warranted. ❖


Understanding the alfalfa plant brings more tonnage Seed treatment Alfalfa is normally planted into a cover crop that serves as a refuge for the early germination and growth of the alfalfa plant. After the cover crop has been harvested or cut, the residue of the cover crop is returned to the soil that then becomes organic matter and feeds the present crop that is being grown. If alfalfa is planted into a field that has not previously been devoted for alfalfa production, it is necessary that the seed be inoculated with bacteria that will form nitrogen-fixing modules on the plant. Even if the field has been growing alfalfa in the past, many people feel that it is still important to put inoculants on alfalfa seed before planting. Alfalfa seed should be treated or seed coated with 2 ounces of Seed Power per hundredweight of seed before planting. Seed Power is a liquid compound which will trigger the alfalfa seed out of dormancy and direct the sugar movement toward the roots of the young germinating plant, rather than toward the mesocotyl growth that appears from the seed.

WACHTLER, from pg. 1B that everyone around us is aware of the stress we are experiencing and the increased demand on our time and workload that will be required because of the conditions. A great way to relieve some of the stress and also improve communication and attitudes of those around you is to have a quick meeting to communicate your workload expectations and your strategy for working through the challenging planting season. Include your employees, family members and any other key people to your operation in the meeting. Make sure to plan for any scheduling or work conflicts that employees or family may have during the planting season well in advance in order to avoid unnecessary stress down the road. Have a plan — Develop a contingency plan in case planting delays persist. In the business world, the best CEOs had contingency plans at the end of last year for the drastic budget cuts, tax hikes and lack of government services that could have been implemented in 2013. In the Upper Midwest, May 25 is typical for considering the move to shorter maturing hybrids. Identify which fields would most likely need the switch and calculate how much seed would be needed if the switch would be made. This will save time and effort later in the season when you may be in the field planting and decide to make the change. Note important dates — In most of Minnesota, the final day to plant corn during the regular crop insurance period is May 31 (May 25 in some of the far northern counties of Minnesota and Wisconsin). The final plant date for soybeans is June 10. After those dates, you may still plant, but your crop insurance guarantee is reduced by 1 percent per day after that final date. If you choose to file a prevent plant claim on your crop insurance it must be filed within 72 hours of the final plant date for each specific crop. A claim for prevent plant, if approved, would pay 60 percent of your

important. It triggers a hybrid vigor in the plant, which will last the rest of the plant’s life. It would be analogous to seed planting. The seed should be planted in soil, as is the normal practice for the area and under the conditions which alfalfa is normally seeded. Be sure that the seed treatment is applied with any other chemical that is desired for seed treatment before planting. Early growth period During the early period of growth when the young alfalfa plant reaches approximately three or four inches in height, foliar apply Bio-Forge — a liquid product recommended as an antioxidant treatment. This removes the stress from the young plant and enables it to change its phytohormone pattern so that more nodules and larger roots will be generated under the young plant so that it can synthesize more nitrogen for plant growth and obtain more rapid exposure to the soil nutrients as the plant roots will more quickly expand and contact more of the nutrients in the soil. First cutting If alfalfa is cut or harvested for hay or silage during its first year of growth after seeding, foliar spray 8 ounces per acre of More Power plus 4 ounces per acre of Stoller’s Force directly onto the plant approximately 14 days before harvest. More Power and Force are both liquid products, which will encourage more rapid growth and more rapid sugar accumulation in the plant before harvest. These treatments will not only increase yields but it will also increase the quality of the forage that is to be harvested. More Power will increase the energy level in the plant to obtain more rapid cell division and cell sizing; this results in heavier plant weight. Stoller’s Force will increase the rate of photosynthesis and move the sugars from the leaves into the storage tissues of the stems. This will result in larger leaves and stems and higher nutritional value.

THE LAND, MAY 10, 2013

No crop has more value to the livestock farmer than does alfalfa, if it is fed to livestock before it is marketed. Since all livestock is limited by certain amount of pounds consumed per day, the quality of the forage has a direct effect upon the weight and quality of grain and milk. Therefore, every pound that is fed has a value, which far exceeds the value of the weight. When determining a feed analysis, the percent protein, the percent digestible energy and the nutrient content are the most important factors that are measured. Since alfalfa is primarily grown and harvested during the period which precedes the budding and seed formation, it is a rather simple crop to understand and less complicated to manipulate during the growing period before the plant is harvested. It is much less complicated than managing crops that grow through its reproductive stage and ripening stage. One has fewer problems managing the alfalfa crop during stress conditions. Yet, stress can have detrimental effects upon not only the yield of alfalfa plants, but also the quality as it relates to feeding value.

Alfalfa gets energy from photosynthesis, carbon ALFALFA, from pg 3B Annual growth habits of the alfalfa plant When the alfalfa plant comes out of dormancy in the spring, the energy reserves (carbohydrates or sugars) are moved upward from the roots into the developing stem and leaf tissue. The stored energy from the roots has been accumulated from previous vegetative growth before the plant went into dormancy in the fall. This is why late harvesting of plants should be avoided — before frost the plants need to accumulate energy and store in the roots, so that the young plant will have energy for regrowth during the following spring period before the plant has leaves, and the soil temperature is warm enough for new root growth. The alfalfa plant gets its energy from two sources. The primary source is from photosynthesis, where carbon dioxide is taken into the plant leaves and combined with hydrogen and oxygen from the water contained in the plant cells. It is in the plant cells of the green leaves where photosynthesis occurs and the carbon is combined with hydrogen and oxygen in order to form sugars (carbohydrates). These sugars are the primary source of energy for plant growth. The other source of energy available for plant growth has not generally been recognized. It is the carbon compounds that are provided to the plant roots. These carbon compounds are obtained from the organic matter in the soil (particularly the residue from previous crops) that is decomposed by soil bacteria, so that the energy is released for plant roots to absorb. Most of the energy absorbed by the soil is contained in the plant roots and available for stored energy to be used by the growing plant, where the upper part of the plant needs additional energy for growth. In other words, the soil-supplied energy is a supplement to the energy that is provided by photosynthesis. Although this is considered a secondary source of energy, it is important.

LOOKING for locations to place

HONEYBEES

It is also important to note that the second harvest of an alfalfa crop is still at a high level. As the third, fourth and possibly fifth cuttings occur, the yields per acre per harvest tend to decrease. Normally speaking, the climatic conditions (rainfall and higher temperatures) will not enable the plant to carry on the maximum rate of photosynthesis in order to provide additional energy that culminates in higher plant yields. Perhaps more importantly, the organic matter release by the bacteria and the soil greatly decreases as the season progresses. Soil bacteria decompose the organic matter, which is most readily converted to energy. This is the organic matter of plant residue that is more easily digestible to the soil bacteria so that they can more greatly prosper and release more energy for plant growth. As the season progresses, the more digestible organic matter has already been processed by the bacteria. Throughout the rest of the season, the organic matter available to the soil bacteria is much less digestible and the activity of the bacteria decreases throughout the growing season. This is common for all plants. At this point it is important to realize that the highest yield of alfalfa occur on soils that have been planted in rotation with plants that are high consumers of nitrogen. These are normally monocotyledon plants. The residue from the monocotyledon plants, which is returned to the soil, contains more digestible organic matter than those plants, which do not return as much organic matter to the soil after harvest. Plants that are completely removed at harvest return little organic matter. Therefore, the soil provides much less source of energy than could be supplied if the organic matter was left in the fields incorporating the surface area of the soil. Since alfalfa plants are normally left in the field for a period of two or more years, and they are harvested with organic matter completely removed from

the acre each year, little organic matter is returned to the soil to form an additional source of energy for the following year’s crops. This is probably an important reason why alfalfa yields tend to decrease every year that they are carried in rotation and their return crop is being harvested. The energy supplied from the soil is never as great as it is during the preceding year. Over a period of years the alfalfa plants become weaker. Grass tends to take over the position of the alfalfa plant so they are crowded out by plants that require much less energy than does alfalfa. This is an important reason why the population of alfalfa plants decreases as a number of years progress in the alfalfa return cycle. Treatment of plant after harvest Immediately after harvesting the alfalfa plant, it is important to apply More Power and Stoller’s Force directly to the crown of the plant as soon as possible. This is easy to accomplish if alfalfa is harvested for silage. If alfalfa is harvested for hay, the hay must be removed from the field before the young alfalfa crops can be drenched with the foliar spray. The immediate application of More Power and Force will cause the alfalfa plant to break more buds in the crown and cause more stems to appear per plant. This merely changes the crown’s hormonal balance so that it produces more energy, and turns vegetative buds (promotion of present stems) toward reproductive buds which cause an additional number of stems. This happens quickly and is dramatic. One can notice the number of new buds formed in the alfalfa crown within four to five days after application. In addition to forming more buds in the crown, the alfalfa plant will be encouraged to maintain more active nodules and more active root growth. This increases both the supply of nitrogen and supply of cell nutrients for the maintenance of greater alfalfa productivity. More Power should be applied at the rate of 8 ounces per acre and Stoller’s Force at the rate of 4 ounces per acre and enough water to thoroughly wet the alfalfa crown and allow some water to drench the soil beside the crown. Applying 10 gallons per acre should be the minimum amount of water used. Preferably, 20 gallons per acre should be applied for this use of the crown drench. The more water that can be applied, the more rapid and through will be the result. If additional nutrients — such as boron or phosphate are needed — these nutrients can be mixed in the same application and applied during the same application process. It is important that this young plant has adequate phosphate in order to convert the energy into accelerated plant growth. It is important to promote the plant during the first 14 days after cutting. This is when plant growth is at its lowest level. Additional plant growth during the first 14 days after cutting will result in significant yield increases during the 28-day period of growth before the next harvest.

MIELKE, from pg. 5B cents above a year ago, but 18 cents below the blocks. FC Stone’s April 30 eDairy Insider Opening Bell reported that a spread of 32 cents occurred in July 2008. Seven carloads of block traded hands this week and 26 of barrel. The lagging AMS-surveyed U.S. average block price hit $1.8154, up 5.4 cents. Barrels averaged $1.7764, up 5.5 cents. Increased milk production in the Midwest continues to translate into increased cheese inventories, according to the USDA’s April 26 Dairy Market News. Cheese production across the rest of the country was also active with manufacturers sending milk to cheese plants in light of good sales. The DMN adds that block cheese supplies were not felt to be burdensome, but some heavier supplies of barrels are weighing on the market. The effects of the spring flush appear to have buyers waiting to see where the market settles. Cash butter closed at $1.65, down 4 cents on the week but 34 cents above a year ago when butter dropped a nickel, hitting the low point for the year at $1.31. Fourteen cars were sold this week. AMS butter averaged $1.7226, up 2.8 cents. Cream is readily available in the West, according to the DMN, so butter churns continue to operate heavy schedules. Increased demand from ice cream manufacturers for cream is not slowing butter production significantly. Cream supplies in the Northeast are more plentiful because milk production is increasing with the spring flush. Butter production has increased as manufacturers deal with expanding volumes of cream. West and Northeast churns are content to build inventories for later in the year, according to the DMN. Several Central churns were actively churning to meet export contracts even though domestic interest is slower, but several operators indicate they are unwilling to compete for spot cream at this time. Northeast bulk butter prices continue to be supported by export sales. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk slipped a penny and a quarter on Friday to close the week at $1.7475. Extra Grade held all week at $1.70. AMS powder averaged $1.6015, up 5.4 cents, and dry whey averaged 56.50 cents, down 1.2 cents. March butter production hit 184 million pounds, according to the USDA’s latest Dairy Products report, up 5.6 percent from February and 4.2 percent above March 2012. Nonfat dry milk output, at 146 million pounds, was up 6.1 percent from February but down 22.8 percent from a year ago. American-type cheese production, at 384 million pounds, was up 10.6 percent from February and just 1.4 percent above a year ago. Italian output, at 416 million, was up 15.2 percent from February and 1.3 percent above a year ago. Total cheese production hit 954 million pounds, up 11.5 percent from February and just 0.2 percent above a year ago. See MIELKE, pg. 7B


Outlook bearish for whey, cheese; butter neutral ited with slowing milk production seasonally. Arizona levels are holding at peak production. The spring flush has arrived in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic. Midwest milk supplies are mostly steady with recent volumes and still building for their flush. Increased production in the region is sending increased volumes of milk to cheese plants. California milk production remains below year-ago levels. Year-to-date pool receipts (adjusted) for California are 5.3

MIELKE, from pg. 6B FC Stone’s May 3 eDairy Insider Opening Bell adds that whey stocks rose 11.8 percent from February. “The outlook for whey is bearish,” the Bell said, “neutral for butter and nonfat dry milk, and slightly bearish for cheese.” Fluid milk supplies in the United States are mostly steady overall, according to the USDA’s weekly update. The Southern tier of states is at or moving past spring flush volumes. Hot weather in Florida is cred-

Fall dairy product availability concerns have lessened MIELKE, from pg. 7B managing partner at Ceres Dairy Risk Management LLC in Seattle and an analyst for the Daily Dairy Report in the April 26 “Daily Dairy Discussion” on the DDR website. She was talking about global milk supplies and pointed out that, first quarter last year, milk production in the five major dairy exporting regions was up 3 percent from the same period in 2011. This year, the DDR estimates that milk production in those regions has decreased by nearly 1.5 billion pounds, or 1 percent, versus 2012’s record levels. This reversal of milk supply has sent milk and dairy product prices higher, leaving both buyers and sellers to ask what will the remainder of 2013 bring? Listen to Dorland’s complete report on the DDR website. ■ Cooperatives Working Together

accepted eight requests for export assistance this week to sell 925,942 pounds of cheese and 1.1 million pounds of butter to customers in Asia and North Africa. The product will be delivered through October and raised the CWT’s 2013 cheese exports to 51 million pounds, 51.7 million pounds of butter, 44,092 pounds of anhydrous milk fat and 218,258 pounds of whole milk powder to 31 countries. Prices retreated from near-record highs at this week’s Global Dairy Trade auction. However, after steadily increasing for months, auction prices remain strong, the DDR said. The weighted-average price of all traded products fell 7.3 percent, the first decline since Dec. 4. Only Cheddar prices moved higher, advancing 3.4 percent to $2.18/lb. Whole milk powder prices posted the largest decline, falling 10.2 percent to an average $2.14/lb. Skim milk powder dropped 9.5 percent to $1.94. Prices for

all products excluding Cheddar were lower in every contract month, according to the DDR, and “contracts for August and September delivery were particularly weak, suggesting that, for the time being, concerns about availability of dairy products this fall have lessened.” DairyBusiness Update reports that higher milk prices combined with lower feed prices to raise the preliminary April 2013 milk-feed price ratio. At 1.56, the index is up from 1.48 in March 2013 and 1.41 in April 2012. The April U.S. average milk price is estimated at $19.30/cwt., up 20 cents from March. Corn prices averaged $6.67 per bushel, down 46 cents; soybeans averaged $14.20/bu., down 40 cents; and dry alfalfa hay averaged $210 per ton, down $9 and the lowest since September. DBU adds that April marked the 25th consecutive month the milk-feed price ratio is below 2.0. With the April 30 Ag Prices report providing the final feed cost adjuster,

the USDA announced the March Milk Income Loss Contract payment at 75.456 cents/cwt. MILC payments were about 52 cents/cwt. in February and about 12 cents in January. ■ Legislation recently introduced in the House by Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and David Scott, D-Ga., got another thumbs ups, this time from dairy producers in Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, members of the Dairy Policy Action Coalition. A DPAC press release said the bill would “offer dairy farmers a new milk insurance package almost identical to the Dairy Security Act included in failed farm bill attempts but without a controversial milk supply management program.” Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

Just in time for the busy summer travel season and Minnesota Museums Month in May, the Minnesota Association of Museums and the Minnesota Historical Society are launching a free Minnesota Museums app that will direct users to the more than 500 museums statewide. “We are so fortunate in Minnesota to have such a wide variety of museums across the whole state,” said Lin Nelson-Mayson, chair of the Minnesota Association of Museums and director of Goldstein Museum of Design. “This new app makes it easier than ever to find those resources.” The app, available May 1 for iOS and Android, allows users to browse Minnesota museums by name, category or location. Users can create an itinerary, check off museums they’ve visited and upload favorite museum photos. The app will also suggest museums based on geographic location. For more information and to download the app, log on to www.minnesotamuseums.org/app. “The Minnesota Museums app is also a great discovery tool for museumgoers. If you’re visiting one museum,

the app will suggest others in the area — museums you may never have heard of,” said Jada Hansen, Minnesota Association of Museums Development cochair and executive director of the Hennepin History Museum. The Minnesota Museums app was developed through a partnership between the Minnesota Association of Museums and the Minnesota Historical Society. The Minnesota Museums app is made possible by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008. May is Minnesota Museums Month Minnesota Museums Month is a statewide celebration of museums, their stories and their communities. This May, visit a new museum in your community, take a road trip or return to one of your favorites that you haven’t seen in awhile. Museums of every type — art, historical, science, arboretums, zoos and more — are participating. For more information log on to www.museumsmonth.org. ❖
