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. 8A

Letter: Utility attempt to shortchange landowners ‘petty’ OPINION

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. The cost of fulfilling the utility companies’ obligation to farmers and landowners is minimal next to the cost of the project. CapX2020 is estimated to cost $2.2 billion. With less than 100 landowners expected to file for relocation across the entire state, their attempt to short change farmers and landowners is downright petty. The Minnesota House did the right thing by including in their ag omnibus finance bill language that clarifies the original intent of the “Buy the Farm” law. That bill is in conference committee right now and the conferees from both the House and Senate should stand up for family farmers and make sure the “Buy the Farm” clarification is included in the final bill. Alan Perish Browerville, Minn. See MINDS, pg. 4A

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 650-mile CapX2020 high voltage power line under way, this law has renewed importance to family farmers and landowners across the state. When I heard that Xcel Energy and the other backers of CapX2020 are claiming that farmers are “voluntarily” relocating their farms and any reimbursements for moving expenses and lost business would be “extra compensation,” I can’t say I was surprised. But let’s be clear: Farmers and landowners didn’t have a choice about the high voltage lines cutting across their land — it was forced upon them. 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

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 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.

Bad economic theory: ‘I know it when I see it’

because they are Harvard economists — couldn’t accept their mistake. Instead of owning up to it, they called the resulting controversy an “academic kerfuffle.” Kerfuffle or not, it’s not academic. Several European nations bought into their prescription and made deep cuts to government spending in hopes of boosting economic growth. Disaster resulted. Spain, for example, followed the advice two years ago and now sports 27 percent unemployment, its worst in history. This week, the House and the Senate will make public their working farm bills. Each will feature spending cuts inspired by the math-corrupted Harvard debt-to-GDP study. The House bill holds an estimated $38 billion in spending cuts ($20 billion in domestic food aid programs alone); the Senate’s $23 billion in cuts. No member of either committee is expected to ask if the cuts are wise or even necessary and none is expected to ask why conservation and domestic food aid programs must be cut in the name of government austerity and economic growth while funding for crop insurance programs will increase. Maybe no one in Congress knows bad economic theory and, even worse, bad long-term ag policy when they see it. You do, though. Right?

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. try 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. 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). Steyer’s final hurdle, of course, is the lack of warming. The satellite readings show no warming trend since 1997. 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.

us and give us a decent spring.” And when that decent spring does arrive, he’ll be ready to go.

The Johnsons Starbuck, Minn. He still wasn’t planting, but at least Scott Johnson was in the field. Picking rocks. Scott Johnson 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 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.”

Efficiency equals viability

You want to maximize revenue on each animal but to be a viable industry you want to be the most efficient you can be. Therefore over time the industry will be healthier the bigger we make the animal, as long as the consumer is willing to accept the meat,” he said. Wallace predicted that the winter of 2013-14 looks good for cattle feeders, but between now and then it’s going to be a red-ink scenario. Wallace spoke at a recent outlook conference for farmers and ag bankers at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall. ❖

The Messners Northfield, Minn. A snow day at the end of April? That’s exactly what happened for Chris Messner’s children on April 23. He estimated that Chris Messner 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

The Laubenthals Swea City, Iowa “Weather’s been real nice.” No one in the region had been able to say that for quite Charlie Laubenthal some time, but Charlie 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.”❖

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

CATTLE, from pg. 8A cows and if this drought starts breaking they can and will recover quickly. Why? Because they have vast ranges of land ready to be repopulated with beef cows just as soon as grasses and other forages start growing again. “Down there it’s either going to be abandoned range or utilized range. And the only way to utilize these millions of acres is with cattle. However it will take two to three years to get these cow numbers back up again.” With depressed fat cattle prices and high feed costs, why don’t cattle feeders finish their cattle at 1,100 to 1,200 pounds rather than 1,400 pounds? Wouldn’t that lessen feed costs and also put less beef into the retail market, which should

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.

“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 finetuning 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 aboveaverage temperatures. With that, Brandt believes “the weather will cooperate with

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 waiting for planting to begin. 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.

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.

Museums app makes finding fun easy 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 museum-goers. 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 co-chair 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. Log on to www.museumsmonth.org for more information. ❖

THE LAND, MAY 17, 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.

“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. Our mothers were right — never talk to strangers. The still waters they lead you beside could be dangerous. “Chew on things awhile first.” With four stomachs, cows have a lot to do just eating. It gives me reason to believe that, since it takes so much time for cows to actually consume and process their food, it should take us some time to consume and process the things that we need to think about, too. 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. This goes without saying, but it’s true no matter if this happens accidentally, or when your babies move away to college. 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 that once they tasted life outside of a pen, they didn’t want to go back. I tried a different approach — standing before them both and gently calling them by name to follow me. Unbelievably, they did — and were actually led back into the pen, instead of being chased. The cows’ last piece of advice: “Always follow the One who leads you.” Karen Schwaller brings “Table Talk” to The Land from her home near Milford, Iowa.

Top 10 grilling goals include coals; charcoals, that is I think we are far enough into May so I can’t jinx us by saying spring is here. Wow! Didn’t that seem like a long winter? As we enter the outdoor grilling and BBQ season, I thought I would compile a “Top 10 List” of things to get done to optimize this year. Why 10? TV host David Letterman does it and he seems to do fine it, so here goes. 1. Do not think of the outdoor cooking season as Memorial Day through Labor Day. Start cooking outdoors this weekend and make a commitment to keep the momentum up right through the holidays, and when I say “holidays,” I am referring to Thanksgiving and Christmas. 2. Take an objective look at your grilling equipment. Do you use a kitchen fork and a plastic Teflon spatula when you are cooking outdoors? If so, that’s simply disturbing. Commit to some quality grilling utensils made of steel. All you really need is a nice spatula and a good set of tongs. 3. Commit to trying some different dishes this year. When the average person thinks of grilling, they envision hot dogs, hamburgers, steak and chicken. 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.

For windbreak planting fact sheet, log on to www.extension.umn.edu/agroforestry. Remember landscape diversity by planting several different species of trees, shrubs and plants in your landscape. No one species should represent more than 15 percent of your landscape. Make it a fam-

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.arborday.org — is celebrated every year on the last Friday in April, and May is Arbor Month. The 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 emerald ash borer website at www.extension.umn.edu/issues/eab to learn more about EAB and alternative shade trees. Shade tree species to consider in rural or urban areas include ginkgo, hackberry, American linden or basswood, sugar maple (Fall Fiesta), Freeman maple (Sienna Glen, Autumn Blaze), red maple (Northwood), and disease-resistant elms; Discovery and Princeton. Residents can plant trees that produce nuts and pods to add diversity, but they need to consider debris or maintenance in these areas. Trees that produce nuts include Ohio buckeye (Autumn Splendor), shagbark hickory, bitternut hickory, bur oak, white oak, bicolor or swamp white oak, and black walnut (can inhibit some plants from growing near it). Trees that produce pods are northern catalpa, Kentucky coffeetree (podless cultivar Stately Manor), honey locust (podless cultivars are Shademaster and Sunburst). According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “one acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and produces four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people.”

Only 12 trailered boats were counted during the entire trip and half of those were headed south. Just north of Brainerd, the paucity of angler traffic became apparent as spring back-slid to winter. With the exception of some of the shallower bays, most lakes including those of the Whitefish Chain where I planned to fish still were locked in varying degrees of ice. It was a similar story for the rest of northern Minnesota, including such premier walleye waters as Leech, Winnie and Mille Lacs. Anglers tend to be an optimistic lot but during this spring, a spring that has yet to arrive, it’s hard to find a positive spin.

Post office on the porch This week’s Back Roads is the work of The Land Correspondent Richard Siemers

A

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. ❖

Grain Outlook

Slowest start to planting in 29 years

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 the futures are moving in one direction and cash JOE TEALE in the other direction. Broker It appears that a deteriorating Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. 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 demand, which is the greater influence on the deterSee TEALE, pg. 2B

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.

The following market analysis is for the week ending May 10. CORN — For the last two weeks, corn has started the week by leaving a gap on the charts. Two weeks ago the weather maps looked wetter which resulted in a limit-up session. This week the weekend weather and the forecasts were friendlier for corn planting, which prompted corn to gap lower. Prices retraced the early week loss when corn planting progress as of May 5 was reported at 12 percent when 1020 percent was expected and compared to 47 percent in the ground on average. This is the slowest start in 29 years with Illi- PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. nois at 7 percent complete, Iowa 8 St. Paul percent and Minnesota 2 percent. Corn was 3 percent emerged, well behind the 15-percent average. Planting progress as of May 12 is expected to be 25-30 percent complete versus the 66 percent average. The May 10 U.S. Department of Agriculture monthly crop report was anticipated for the first 2013-14 balance sheets, but early excitement was overshadowed by strong spot basis levels and weather outlooks. Corn is a domestic market as weekly corn sales were a seven-week low at 4.6 million bushels and well below the 12.3 million bushels needed weekly to hit the USDA’s 800-million-bushel export estimate. Total commitments are down 55 percent from last year when the USDA has a 48 percent decline penciled in on the balance sheet. Ethanol production is profitable, but users have to

Demand, forecasts ignite trek higher for beans NYSTROM, from pg. 1B stretch to source corn supplies. Weekly ethanol production was down 14,000 barrels per day at 843,000 barrels per day. Since the beginning of the crop year, weekly production is averaging an annual grind of 4.58 billion bushels. Ethanol stocks fell 9 million gallons to 708 million gallons and their lowest level in 18 months. The May crop report was mostly as expected, no friendly surprises. This year’s balance sheet saw a cut in exports of 50 million bushels to 750 million and an increase in ethanol usage resulting in a 2 million bushel increase in ending stocks to 759 million bushels. Our first peak at the 2013-14 balance sheets was also as predicted: acreage up 100,000 acres to 97.3 million, yield at 158 bushels per acre which is down from the 163.6 bu./acre trendline used at the February USDA Outlook Conference, but good enough for record production at 14.14 billion bushels. This is a crop increase of 3.36 billion bushels or 31 percent over last year. World ending stocks for this year were basically steady at 125.4 million metric tons, but next year they jump to 154.6 mmt. The average U.S. farm price for this year is a range of $6.70 to $7.10, but drops to $4.30 to $5.10 per bushel next year. OUTLOOK: Markets are easily swayed by each change in forecast, so stay in tune with map updates.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration does not expect either El Niño or La Niña conditions to develop this summer in the United States. Now that the May report is in the rearview window, the focus will return to weather and demand. Based on basis strength and board inverses, it doesn’t seem like we’ve solved the rationing problem in old crop. The challenge for new crop will be to prove we’ve overestimated the crop. December corn rallies will increasingly be seen as selling opportunities, but we’re a long way off from being assured of a record crop. Volatility will be more the norm than not. July corn was down 25 cents at $6.36 1/4 for the week, with the December contract off 24 cents at $5.29 1/2 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans started the week on a soft note, but strong demand, non-existent grower sales and changing forecasts ignited a trek higher into the crop report. Current weather conditions have prompted conversations over lower double-crop bean acres due to delayed wheat development and subsequent harvest. Nearby demand was confirmed with processor basis jumping 10 to 20 cents this week depending on location. Weekly export sales for old crop were positive at 7.1 million bushels after two weeks of net cancellations. The USDA had two sales announcements this week, a 115,000 mt and 110,000 mt sale of new crop soybeans to China. More trade chatter surfaced during the week about South America soybeans working their way to an East Coast processor. So far, it’s believed a one-million-bushel vessel is headed to that processor with possibly four to seven additional cargoes on the books. This doesn’t solve the overall tight U.S. situation since it doesn’t work for interior houses to import beans and move them upriver. The first soybean planting report of the season was released May 6 indicating a meager 2 percent of the crop in the ground versus 12 percent complete on average. No planting progress was reported in the Midwest with the exception of 1 percent in Nebraska. Progress as of May 12 is estimated to hit

MARKETING

4 to 6 percent. The May 10 USDA crop report didn’t report any shocking numbers, but they were viewed as generally negative. The 2012-13 balance sheet was left entirely unchanged with carryout at 125 million bushels. The brand new 2013-14 balance sheets put planted acreage at 77.1 million acres, down 100,000 from last year; yield 44.5 bushels per acre, up from last year’s 39.6 bushels per acre; record production of 3.39 billion bushels, up from last year’s 3.015 billion bushels. Ending stocks for 2013-14 of 265 million bushels were above the 239 million prereport projection. The national average farm price is predicted to range from $9.50 to $11.50, up from this year’s $14.30 per bushel. Brazil’s crop was unchanged from last month at 83.5 mmt, but the trade was expecting a slightly smaller figure. Argentina’s number was cut 0.5 mmt to 51.0 mmt. World ending soybean stocks for 2013-14 are predicted to hit a record 75 mmt, up 20 percent from this year. OUTLOOK: Inverse spreads on the board should continue to expand until we see better rationing with a lot of the marketing year left. May soybeans this week surpassed the $15 level for the first time since October and pulled the July with it. For the week, July soybeans were up 11 3/4 cents at $13.99 while the November contract tumbled 15 3/4 cents lower to $12.05 1/2 per bushel. Weather and demand will dominate direction going forward. There’s still a lot of marketing year left to supply and we haven’t even gotten a real start on planting. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending May 10: Minneapolis wheat was down 10 1/4 cents, Chicago fell 16 3/4 cents and Kansas City dropped 19 1/4 cents. June crude oil was 43 cents higher at $96.04, heating oil increased 2 1/4 cents, gasoline gained 3 1/2 cents and natural gas declined 13 cents. The U.S. dollar index was up a full percentage point at 83.155 after a huge two-day gain to close out the week.

TEALE, from pg. 1B mination 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. ❖

business, but once it’s processed into beef, too. An estimated two-thirds of retail marketings are “out front sales,” Speer said. “They’re not spot sales. “What’s happening is that we are continuing to have more need for efficiency of movement, precision, to meet consumer needs,” he said. “We need the right cattle, the right products, at the right time and the right place, and that’s ultimately because we want to offer high-quality, highly competitive products with consistent, predictable turnover.” That’s especially important as beef looks to compete with much cheaper alternatives. Beef is running at 240 percent the price of chicken and 140 percent that of pork. “We’re on the upper edge of where we’ve ever been,” Speer said. “At what point do consumers begin to push back? I don’t know; they’ve shown amazing resilience and continue to do so, but this is a concern. Certainly, higher price equals higher expectations,” he said. The apparent solution is more teamwork. “If we can supply high-quality product on a consistent basis, then we create demand,” Speer said. “Then the demand feeds back into the supply and it’s really a network-type of perspective where we create an entire ecosystem around a business, and ultimately we get new value creation.” This article was submitted by Certified Angus Beef LLC. ❖

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

WACHTLER, from pg. 1B Communicate — Sometimes, we take it for granted 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 insurance guarantee. Many factors need to be weighed when choosing to switch maturities, intended corn or soybean acres and filing prevent plant options. A spreadsheet or online application is usually worth the effort when considering your options. Make sure to talk to your crop insurance agent as the deadline to plant approaches. Look ahead — Finally, don’t forget about your drying fuel and extra resources needed for this fall. Mother Nature has a strange sense of humor and our late spring might mean harvest will have its own set of challenges. Remember to put your action plan in place now and reduce your stress during the entire season. AgStar Financial Services is a cooperative owned by client stockholders.

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. Then, the independent sector orientation began to adjust for mutual good. “We began to understand that we need to work together in this industry,” Speer said. That lent itself to more branded programs and supply-chain alliances. “Today we’re averaging somewhere around 12 percent to 15 percent branded sales on a weekly basis,” he said. “This push will probably continue in the years ahead.” As a result, grid and other negotiated sales make up 75 percent of all fed-cattle marketings today. Part of that also comes from increased competition for feeder cattle, and the need to recoup premiums paid on cattle coming into the feedyards. “They’ve begun to implement more and more supply management over the last 10 years, and those are strategic business decisions,” Speer said. “If we can find cattle that meet some end-user specification and then match our inputs and do that securely, we begin to kind of distance ourselves from the rivalry of fighting it out in a commodity market.” That’s not only happening on the cattle side of the

Heavy cattle — sorting opportunities from challenges 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 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 portion-control standpoint and a unit-cost standpoint.” Increasing HCW is like adding many more finished cattle. Stika noted Cattle-Fax 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 high-quality beef in that mix, too. Carcasses accepted for the CAB brand this year have a 7-pound heavier HCW 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 Astamped 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 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.

Labor challenges are also part of the problem at foodservice where 75 percent of restaurants still cut their own steaks, but there’s a developing trend toward breaking down some popular subprimals to smaller cuts. “You’ve got some different options that are starting to catch on very nicely at foodservice, but it’s not the end-all and be-all,” Stika said. “You have higher production costs and lower product yield.” 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. But 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.

MIELKE, from pg. 5B cent but the DBU points out that the March volume was the most since last August. ■ Cooperatives Working Together accepted six requests for export assistance this week to sell 1.896 million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The USDA’s latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report lowered its 2013 milk production forecast again, due to lower milk per cow in the first quarter. Cow numbers were unchanged from last month’s report. Fat-basis imports were reduced mostly on lower imports of anhydrous products. The skim solids import forecast was reduced largely on lower expected imports of milk protein concentrates. Export forecasts are unchanged. Look for 2013 milk output to hit 201.8 billion pounds, down 100 million pounds from last month’s estimate, and compares to 2012 output of 200.3 billion. With the slightly lower forecast and improved domestic product demand, price forecasts for cheese, butter, nonfat dry milk and whey were raised. As a result, both Class III and Class IV price forecasts are higher than last month. The Class III average is now projected at $17.85 to $18.35 per hundredweight, up from $17.55 to $18.15 expected a month ago, and compares to a $17.44 average in 2012. The Class IV is expected to average $18.10 to $18.70, up from the $17.35 to $18.05 expected last month, and compares to $16.01 in 2012. ■ Domestic corn use for 2012-13 was projected 100 million bushels lower as a 50-million-bushel increase in corn used to produce ethanol partly offset the lower projection for feed and residual disappearance. Larger-than-expected March 1 corn supplies, lower corn prices and favorable margins for producing and blending ethanol limit the expected year-to-year decline in ethanol production during the second half of the marketing year (March to August). Corn exports for 2012-13 were projected 25 million bushels lower reflecting the continued sluggish pace of sales and shipments and additional competition from Brazil and Ukraine. Projected U.S. corn ending stocks for 2012-13 are raised 125 million bushels. The projected range for the season-average corn farm price was lowered 20 cents at the midpoint to $6.65 to $7.15 per bushel. April alfalfa hay averaged $215 per ton, up $5 from a year ago. The breakdown by regional states reveals the variable regional pricing. Selected Central states’ prices included Iowa, $251, up $108; Michigan, $250 up $125; Minnesota, $255 up $105; South Dakota, $236 up $101; and Wisconsin $225 up $120. Selected See MIELKE, pg. 7B


Senate ag committee’s farm bill version contains DSA would have set the California Class 4b “dry whey factor” at no less than 80 percent of the federal order Class III “dry whey factor.” Also removed was a whey factor exemption on the first 3 million pounds of milk purchased by cheese plants per month, designed to protect small cheese processors unable to capture revenues from whey from higher milk procurement/processing costs. In its place, committee chair Susan Eggman, D-Stockton, inserted lan-

guage intended to get dairy producers, processors, the state’s Dairy Future’s Task Force and the California Department of Food & Agriculture to come up with new policy to address the Class 4b dry whey factor and processor exemption, according to the DBU.

periods. This is detrimental to farmers. Low milk prices will lead to more government outlays and is detrimental to taxpayers. “The Dairy Freedom Act is supported by processors,” the letter charges, “Precisely because it offers them the prospect of lower milk prices, subsidized by government insurance payments. This scenario is not sustainable. Free margin insurance alone is a costly ruse.” The farm groups assert that “market stabilization sends a clear signal to farmers participating in this program that a bit less milk is needed. Not only does this hasten a rebound in low-margin situations, it reduces the cost of the program to the government.” The joint letter states that “the real threat to the growth of our domestic dairy industry is not a market stabilization program that will only rarely activate; it’s the further damage to our dairy producer sector that would result from an ill-conceived processors’ dream plan to assure themselves a sea of taxpayer-subsidized milk.” The letter also notes, the DSA is “a voluntary approach to risk management, which offers producers the choice to participate.” ■ Meanwhile, the Senate agriculture committee released its farm bill this week and includes the DSA, prompting praise from the NMPF, however the Dairy Business Association leadership met with Speaker of the House John Boehner this week to convey opposition to the supply management provision in the farm bill. DBA President Jerry Meissner said “Wisconsin and the nation’s dairy industry is ready for Congressional leadership to break away from the outdated, anti-free market dairy policies that have been in existence for 75 years.” ■ At the state level, DairyBusiness Weekly reports that the California Assembly ag committee approved an amended AB 31 on a 6-0 vote, May 1. “However, the form of the bill that left room 126 of the Capitol contained ‘intent’ rather than policy. And, whether the vote is judged as a decision akin to Solomon, or just the proverbial ‘kicking the can down the road’ could play out over the next three weeks.” Removed was the original language, introduced last December by Assemblyman Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, that

The rate per cow, at 21,697 pounds, was up 361 pounds from 2011. The annual average number of milk cows on farms was 9.23 million head, up 39,000 head from 2011. Cash receipts from marketings of milk during 2012, totaled $37.0 billion, down 6.4 percent from 2011. Producer returns averaged $18.56/cwt., 8.3 percent below 2011. Marketings totaled 199.4 billion pounds, 2.1 percent above 2011. ■ By the way, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency says farm payments, which had been temporarily suspended due to sequestration, were scheduled to resume May 8. That includes the Milk Income Loss Contract Program. ■ In dairy politics, more than 50 state and national dairy organizations, including the National Milk Producers Federation, called on members of the House agriculture committee this week to include the Dairy Security Act in the upcoming farm bill. The House ag panel is expected to begin drafting the bill May 15. The group told lawmakers in a letter that dairy producers need “a financially sound risk management program to help farmers better manage margin volatility.” It noted the economic conditions that led to the development of the DSA following the dairy depression in 2009. It argued that low milk prices and high feed costs “generating terrible margins,” which were experienced again, last year, when feed costs soared to record levels as milk prices dropped. The coalition’s letter, signed by 52 organizations, urged House members to oppose a competing proposal to be offered by Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and David Scott, D-Ga., the “Dairy Freedom Act,” charging that it would “weaken the safety net for farmers in order to benefit dairy processors. The Dairy Freedom Act strips out the market stabilization component from the DSA.” The letter adds that “without the discipline offered by market stabilization, low milk prices will continue for longer

Understanding the alfalfa plant brings more tonnage 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 forma-

tion, 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. 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. This is important. It triggers a hybrid vigor in the plant, which will last the rest of the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 See ALFALFA, pg. 9B

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. 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

ALFALFA, from pg. 8B 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. 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

More active nodules, roots make for more productivity ALFALFA, from pg. 9B 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.
