OPINION

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

OpenSecrets.org, a non-partisan watchdog that tracks money in politics, estimates that the top five bank biz lobbying efforts opposed to Dodd-Frank spent a collective $163.5 million in 2012 to delay, defang and dilute it. That’s after an estimated $1 billion they spent in a massive, failed attempt to defeat it in Congress in 2010. The boys are having better luck now; three years after passage, barely half of the administrative rules to enforce Dodd-Frank are in place. The rest are tied up in a foot-dragging Congress and, unbelievably for a law not yet in force, in court. One of the banking boys’ best friends in Congress is Frank Lucas, R-Okla., chairman of the House ag committee. Like the bankers, he’s perfectly happy to use CFTC reauthorization to re-fight Dodd-Frank. And he is. In a May 21 ag committee hearing, “The Future of the CFTC,” Lucas lectured colleagues to “keep at the forefront the prevailing issue facing the country: economic growth and job creation,” not the “unrealistic timeline established in Dodd-Frank.” Most Americans would say the “prevailing issue facing the country” is the safety of the nation, not the success of a bunch bone-headed, bailed-out bankers. You remember the nation, right? Alan Guebert’s “Farm and Food File” is published weekly in more than 70 newspapers in North America. Contact him at agcomm@farmandfoodfile.com. ❖

Sunshine can make the world look a whole lot brighter MINDS, from pg. 2A Perspective depends on location My weather comment: we got 1 1/2 inches of rain the morning of June 12 near Olivia. We definitely needed a good soaker. My gauge showed only 1.4 inches since May 1. Our subsoils were bordering on “dangerously dry.” Strange talk considering the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s latest crop report which indicated upwards of 3 million acres of corn nationwide didn’t

get planted. However, 10 days of sunshine and this crabby, crappy world will take on some startling new dimensions despite a few million acres of prevent plant fields now sprouting across much of middle America. Thoughts of $5 corn this fall have now rapidly morphed back up to $7. Dick Hagen is staff writer of The Land. He may be reached at dickhagen@mvtvwireless.com. ❖

He said bacon has enjoyed a “10-year renaissance” of taste experimentations in different dishes, especially salads, because it brings a special taste. “The profile of bacon matches up very well with the human desire for taste. And that is why we are seeing bacon become the ‘star menu item’ at many restaurants.” The pork loin continues as a competitive meat product on a nutrition, calorie, and cholesterol level with skinless chicken breasts. “It’s not about one-size-fits-all. It’s about meeting specific desires in the market place,” said Dierks, adding that the National Pork Board has developed specific nutrition programs for dietitians, nutritional and health professionals dealing with the health benefits of pork, especially when dealing with obesity issues.

becoming significant across America, it appears that $7plus corn is more likely this fall than the earlier projected $5 corn. And carryover on the short 2012 crop is likely to shrink appreciably. So how does the American pork producer play his cards to meet his feed needs this fall? “Just too many unanswered questions floating around out there,” Dierks said. “But it would appear prudent to lock in some feed supplies sooner rather than later.” And if feed costs ramp up as a major issue for 2013-14 will the swine industry put the brakes on its projected production? In essence, will swine numbers ramp down? Said Dierks, “We’ve seen losses this past year of $35-$40 per animal. We have high market prices currently but production costs are such that there’s nothing left for margin. So yes, some producers are getting out — they don’t want to play the game anymore. Some are holding steady. But as always there’s a certain amount of updating going on with established producers; even a few new faces showing up who have credit and capital lined up. “Lenders are watchful, probably looking even more closely at each individual customer,” he said. “But (economist) Steve Meyers here at the Expo was suggesting that some profitability might be getting back into this industry once we see how this summer plays out. Understandably it’s a guessing game right now.” NPPC is headquartered in Washington, D.C. For more information, log on to www.nppc.org. ❖

Relating to the purchase of Smithfield Pork by a Chinese business entity, Dierks indicated the National Pork Producers Council doesn’t get involved in acquisitions, domestic or foreign. But he said this intended purchase does not affect consolidation within the pork industry and this is not a food safety issue. “This gives the Chinese firm access to U.S. technologies as well as the U.S. domestic market for pork products and expertise into China. I think it can have a positive impact for the swine industry simply because the growing Chinese population wants more pork in their diets. “Last year 23 1⁄2 percent of U.S. muscle cuts were exported but we also have a growing market of pork products that have a higher value in overseas markets than they do here. We refer to these as ‘variety meats’ and with their inclusion, 27 percent of U.S. pork production was exported last year. Our exports last year accounted for $56 of total value of each pig processed in America,” said Dierks. In 1988, the United States was still a net pork importer. Today, the U.S. is the world’s No. 1 pork supplier, exporting 2.262 million metric tons in 2012 at a record value of $6.322 billion. Because of delayed and prevent planted acres rapidly

Pig diets a bit more complicated than in the old days starter for pigs less than 21 days; a starter pellet for days 20 to reports from 26, and a base mix for days 21 to 30. “When it comes to formulating baby pig rations you need a lot of research and experience. You can’t get too simple too quick because that digestive tract of a young pig is virtually adjusting daily to different tastes, different nutrient needs,”

Hedges said. “You can’t get carried away with bean meal. Too simple, too quick doesn’t work because the baby pig’s gut isn’t mature enough to handle it.” Ralco started as a ruminant feed outfit providing special ingredients for beef cattle way back when cattle numbers were big in southwest Minnesota.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Many hog producers remember when diets for pigs were pretty simple. After weaning you started with a growing ration, then when pigs got to about 125 pounds Jim Hedges you switched to a finishing ration the rest of the way to market. Diets for pigs are a bit more complicated these days. Jim Hedges, a swine nutritionist for Ralco Animal Nutrition in Marshall, Minn., said, “today we’ve got four diets in the nursing/weaning stage, and six more in the finishing stage. Yes, I’d like to think that more diversity in diets is the primary reason for the significant increase in rate of gain and feed efficiency in recent years. But we’ve got to give credit to the genetic people, too. A lean hog is an efficient animal. Fat hogs aren’t. “I still facetiously say the only thing a nutritionist can do is ruin a good hog. The point being that if you don’t feed that hog right, you’ll never realize its true potential. So we constantly need to be tweaking the diets to meet the genetic needs of these swine. Also you couldn’t get the feed conversion we have these days with the hogs we were raising back in the ’80s and ’90s. There’s been a world of genetic improvement in the blood lines of these pigs.” Swine nutrition has gotten more complex, primarily because more ingredients now work their way into swine diets at various stages of growth. Ralco used to mostly concentrate on concentrates — i.e., 500 pounds into the grower ration, 350 into the finishing ration. Then it was mostly a matter of hiring dealers who went out and sold to farmers. “Today with so many different commodities getting into feed rations, it’s a different ball game,” Hedges said. “For example, depending upon price, corn DDGs are either in or out. Last year we used a lot of wheat and rice bran. We’re using tryptophan now all the way to market because synthetic tryptophan is now affordable, and that’s partly because soy meal prices have gone up considerably. We probably use more synthetics than most feed formulators. “Today a finishing ration is nearly $300 a ton; a few years back it was $85. The amount of work in formulating a diet today is very complex. We formulate on a net energy basis. Net energy gives corn a lot more credit than it does bean meal. That approach rewards corn and synthetics, and reduces bean meal.” Ralco does most of their research work in their own lab facilities but most feeding trials are actually onfarm with cooperators in the Marshall area. But things may be changing. Ralco has an ambitious building program launching this summer which will include a 1,200-head swine nursery barn and two 1,200-head swine finishing barns. They buy weanlings from an area sow group. Getting big play at the Ralco booth at the recent World Pork Expo in Des Moines was a new product called Rally Starter. As the name suggests, it concentrates on nutrition for the young pig with three different Rally Starter feeds used sequentially: a pre-

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer How to build a soils science short course in three easy steps: Step 1 — Dig a hole 5 feet deep, 4 feet wide and 6 feet long. Step 2 — Add three students and one University of Minnesota Extension soils specialist. Step 3 — Educate for 45 minutes. At a May 18 4-H “Tracking Program,” the soils specialist in this arrangement was Jodi DeJong-Hughes, a U of M Extension educator from the Willmar regional office. The students were Nathan Gartner of the Boone Lake Orioles 4-H Club, and Parker and Spencer Sullivan, of the Birch Coulee 4-H Club. In addition to this soil science track, these Renville County 4-H’ers could select from vegetable gardening, quilting, pigeons, lefse-making, geocaching, terrariums, video creations or shooting sports. This track, by far, was the dirtiest. “This was good,” said Spencer Sullivan. “I learned a bunch, especially about soil structure and what makes up a good soil. I learned that those red streaks in a soil profile are oxidized iron. Also some tillage systems, especially mold board plowing, can create compaction ribbons. “She (DeJong Hughes) explained why crop rotations help build soil structure, especially when combined with minimum tillage. Also, good soil structure can be clumpy but falls apart quite easily when tilled.And earthworms create a breathing system for soils even down through three feet of top soil. There’s just a world of biological activity in good soils.” Classroom in a hole DeJong-Hughes enjoys teaching and talking about soils. In that 5-foot-deep classroom, she and her students used metal scallops to get a close-up inspection of the different ingredients to be found in soils. Even though the soil was not yet fully recharged with moisture, she showed her students about ribboning, and the difference between clay loam soils, and silty clay loams, and the red coloration of clay soils in the presence of iron and high pH. “I basically start by explaining that soil is made up of sand, silt and clay,” she said. “And depending upon how much of each is present in the soil profile determines the soil type and, to some extent, the productivity of that particular soil. When students are in a soil pit with me we all get dirty fingers. We do the soil texturing thing were we squeeze out a ribbon of soil between our thumb and fingers.” Next she described organic matter

Students get an understanding of soil’s real value SOIL, from pg. 9A Another student asked if farming soils more intensely affects microbial activity in the soil. Hughes said some microbes like it, but soils host billions of microbes so the more food you can give them, and the less tillage, the more diverse your populations. “But more tillage and less rotation starts selecting for certain microbes,” she said, “and that’s when we start seeing more root rots, etc. We don’t have the protection of the beneficial microbes so the parasitic microbes start taking over.” What’s the value of frost in maintaining soil texture? “Not as important as wetting and drying,” DeJong-Hughes said. “I have to give them the standard University answer — It depends on the situation,” she said in response to farmers asking about the best tillage

system. “Generally my response would favor reduced tillage. And I often suggest vertical tillage as a consideration. It does a nice job of chopping and sizing residue and mixes some air into the soil surface. I like it as a less-aggressive form of tillage.” Tracks and compaction DeJong-Hughes teaches her students about soil compaction as it relates to tires versus tracks on today’s farm equipment. “Contrary to most thinking, track tractors exert as much and often more soil pressure. Bogey wheels do exert extra pressure under the tracks, plus often there’s four to six inches of track beyond that base cage so they’re not holding much weight.” From a flotation viewpoint, however, she told her students that nothing beats a track. When farmers tell her they wear out ripper points

more quickly behind tires than they do behind tracks, DeJong-Hughes wants to know the inflation of their tires. It’s pounds per square inch that determines compaction, and she points out that track tractors have an elevated psi below those bogey wheels. “If there’s one thing farmers should be doing it’s checking tire pressure on their tractors and farm equipment, especially planters and combines,” she said. Relating to new studies under way, comparing road inflation versus field inflation, DeJong-Hughes said, “we’re seeing that with center-fill planters you’ve got to be at 75 psi going down the road and in the field it can be 30 psi. But who’s going to stop and deflate tires as they are leaving the road then inflate tires when back on the road? We’ve found a system that will do that automatically from the cab of your tractor. We’ve installed it on a couple of tractors so hopefully we’ll have some significant data to share eventually.” A device called Precision Inflation is available that does these tire inflation-deflation tasks on the go, but it costs about $20,000 and requires drilling holes in the tire rims. According to DeJong-Hughes, this instrument can deflate triples on the tractor and four planter wheels in under three minutes, and only four minutes to reinflate. “This is an old idea in Germany where farmers long ago learned the importance of tire psi when working their fields, and running equipment on their roads,” she said. In Germany the device is common on manure tanks moving big tonnages from farmstead to fields, often on public hard-surface roads. She said the U.S. military has also been using this for several years. ❖

planting and cool weather could mean a smaller crop this fall. “Spraying behind the planter, pre-emerge is all done,” he said. “When we do get heat, the crops will grow and so will the weeds.” Warmer temperatures are forecasted in the upper-70s for the remainder of the week. Johnson will focus on cleaning up bins and begin spraying again in the next two weeks. With planting done, Johnson hopes for sun, sun and more sun to help the crop not only catch up but hopefully flourish.

The Messners Northfield, Minn. Still planting. This is not what Chris Messner thought he would be attempting to do on June 11 but unfortunately Mother Nature had other plans. “Definitely not where we wanted Chris Messner to be,” Messner said. With continued rain, planting will have to wait. “We’re in a holding pattern” Messner said when The Land spoke with him on June 11. At that time he estimated that 60 to 70 percent of the corn was planted in the Northfield area with beans progress at 40 percent completion. On the Messner farm, 120 acres of beans still needed to be planted. Messner believes that he’s still better off trying to plant the remainder of the beans up until the end of next week. After that the only option he may have is prevent planting. “It’s kind of a depressing thought, not planting,” Messner said. He knows of farmers in the area who are completely done with planting while he also knows of some who just started planting on June 8. Weather patterns have dictated who will have a crop and who may not. “Some crops out there look pretty good but it’s still far behind,” Messner said. “Most corn doesn’t look too bad.” Messner does admit, “I’ve never seen a spring like this before.” He needs two to three days to finish planting beans once the ground dries out, but with more rain predicted that just may be a tall order. “It’s kind of depressing but we’re trying to stay upbeat.”

“It’s rained 11 days in the last two weeks,” was Charlie Laubenthal’s drippy report to The Land on June 10. While that may be bad, what’s worse is that he hasn’t been able Charlie Laubenthal to be in the field in almost a month. “We haven’t turned the wheels since the 16th (of May).” More rain is forecasted in the days ahead and optimism for finishing planting the crops is quickly fading away. “We just stay saturated,” Laubenthal said. “Anybody that has the option to take prevent corn has taken the option.” Looking out over the countryside, Laubenthal notes that it seems that every other field hasn’t even been touched. “Everybody is in the same boat,” Laubenthal said. On the bright side, “it gives you plenty of time to visit with the neighbors.” Laubenthal isn’t optimistic that things will improve this planting season. Even with ideal conditions it would take at least five days for the ground to be fit for planting. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Laubenthal said. “I don’t think the mindset is to prevent plant a crop, we want to plant.” The decision on what to do or not do will have to be made by Laubenthal and many other farmers in the area fairly soon. “The whole crop in general isn’t looking nice,” Laubenthal said. But Laubenthal knows what all farmers do: “It is what it is.” For good or bad the 2013 planting season is coming to a close. ❖

The planting season has finally wrapped up on the Johnson farm, and Scott Johnson will be the first to admit that it “wasn’t perfect planting conditions.” While the crops are in the ground, it is “hard Scott Johnson to get things dried out here.” When The Land spoke with Johnson on June 12, the Starbuck area was in the midst of cooler-thanaverage temperatures with more rain forecasted for already wet soil. “Last week was a pretty wet week,” Johnson said. That, coupled with cooler temperatures, has made this year’s crop less than picture perfect. The corn is yellowing and needs heat to catch up, Johnson said. While he wishes the crop could have been planted sooner, he also knows that “some of the rain drowned out the low spots,” Johnson said. Late

Not ideal temperatures and lots of moisture, but Danny Brandt still feels fortunate to have been able to get the crops in. When The Land spoke to Brandt Danny Brandt on June 10, he said his farm received three inches of rain in the last two weeks, with below-average temperatures. “Nothing wants to grow in these temperatures,” he said. Brandt still has 20 to 30 acres of beans to plant but thinks they’ll be able to get back to it this week. “For as cool and as wet as it has been you’ve got to count your blessings, it looks pretty good,” Brandt said. While a couple of his fields aren’t growing as well as they should, warmer weather predicted for later in the week may help those fields catch up. Brandt has sprayed all but 80 acres of corn and will finish spraying that, as well as spraying all the wheat by Wednesday. “So far I feel on track with everything,” he said. Not too far from the Brandt farm conditions are not as cooperative — north and east of the farm there still are fields not yet planted. Crops around the farm, though, “are looking good.” This spring is more like the conditions Brandt is used to planting in — “cooler weather” — and being geared up for a short planting window he was able to get the seed in the ground fast and move on to spraying. Though conditions have not been ideal all spring long, Brandt hopes to just keep getting work done where he can. With many others in the state struggling with decisions of prevent plant, or unable to spray planted crops, Brandt continues to count his blessings.

Lilies can be the star of the show, no gilding necessary How often should I have my soil tested? Every three to four years or so is recommended. Contact your local Extension office for information on soil testing. What do the numbers on fertilizer packages mean? Three numbers are prominent on fertilizer packages. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are what the numbers refer to and they are always listed in that order. N (nitrogen) the first number helps the plant growth above ground. P (phosphorous) the middle number helps establish healthy roots. K (potassium) the last number helps build strong cells in the plant. Fertilizers that have equal numbers can be used as an all-purpose fertilizer. An example would be 10-10-10. If you bought a 50-pound bag of this 10-10-10 fertilizer, 5 pounds would be nitrogen, 5 pounds would be phosphorous and 5

pounds would be potassium. The remaining 70 percent is inert filler that helps in getting an even distribution when applying it. Lawn fertilizers frequently have high first numbers because the high nitrogen content produces lush green grass. For promoting good fruit and flower production, look for a middle number higher than the first one. If your plants are stressed or to toughen them up use a fertilizer with a high last number. When fertilizing don’t think that more is better. Plants can be burned by over fertilizing. If your soil is rich in organic matter, it should have most of the nutrition your plants need.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent Yankton, S.D., was once the home of the Gurney Seed Co., and in my fabled youth I would often go past their famous store in my hometown. If you listened to WNAX Radio, you knew all about Gurney’s seeds, which were rigorously promoted on air. The old building held warped wooden floors and sunlight streamed through high dusty windows. My dad remembers how good it smelled, like a plowed field, from all the nursery stock. My farmer grandfather was thrilled to learn we were moving to Yankton so he could visit the place where all those catalogs were coming from. And popcorn was always free. The building originally was a true shopping center, housing a retail greenhouse, a barber, a grocery store, a jeweler, a medicine store and a restaurant/hotel. Gurney’s was founded in 1866, but in 2000, after a couple of decades of business hassles, Gurney’s closed its doors in Yankton, and moved operations to Indiana. The landmark building is now being converted to condos. Gurney’s published a cookbook in the 1980s written by its employees and friends of the company, and here are my favorite recipes. In Iowa they call ’em Maid-Rites or “loosemeat sandwiches”. In South Dakota, they’re called taverns. Call them what you want but don’t call me late for dinner. I made a scaled-down version of this dish with just two pounds of ground beef and found it very similar to the commercial varieties. My “boys” ate every last dribble, so I guess that’s four out of four “yums” from the Johnson troop. Serve with mustard and sliced pickles, of course. (Some say it is unholy to use ketchup.) Taverns for 100 Submitted by Anita Anderson 20 pounds ground beef 6 large chopped onions 6 cans chicken gumbo soup 2 soup cans water 1/3 cup salt 1 teaspoon pepper 12 chicken bouillon cubes 12 dashes Tabasco 2 tablespoons Heinz 57 sauce 2 tablespoons Kitchen Bouquet 2/3 cup flour 1 cup oatmeal Brown meat and onion; drain. Add rest of ingredients; simmer overnight. Here’s a simple, make-ahead apple

Grain Outlook Corn storms in on strong note

Livestock Angles Grain Angles Cattle, hogs study Prepare for of opposites profitability shift

The following market analysis is for the week ending June 20. CORN — I’m writing a day early this week due to prior commitments. Corn stormed into the week on a strong note with new crop leading the charge higher. The first heat wave of the season wiggled into the forecasts and reminded the market that the crop is not yet in the bin. The wet beginning this year didn’t require corn to put down deep roots to find water, and any prolonged period of hot, dry conditions may make traders nervous. Last year’s drought-induced rally began June 19, 2012. PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. December corn’s low this week St. Paul was on Monday at $5.25 3/4 and by Wednesday December corn had hit a high of $5.71 per bushel. Informa Economics updated their crop estimates at mid-week, noting that they adjusted their numbers from the actual survey results due to condition changes from when they conducted their survey. They are pegging corn acres at 95.262 million, down roughly 2 million acres from the March U.S. Department of Agriculture outlook and in line with trade expectations. Using a 160.8 bushels per acre yield, they expect the crop to hit a record 14.078 billion bushels. On the June crop report, USDA was using 156.5 bu./acre for a crop of 14.005 billion bushels. The corn crop is essentially planted and the USDA did not issue a planting progress report this week. However, conditions improved 1 percent in the good/excellent category to 64 percent. Corn emergence was 92 percent, down 5 percent from the average pace. Weekly ethanol production was down 11,000 barrels per day to 873,000 barrels per day. This is 3 per-

What a study in opposites for cattle and hogs so far in June. Hogs have been on a strong upward push in prices, while cattle have been spiraling to lower levels. Demand continues to plague the cattle market, forcing packers to be extremely weary of paying higher prices for live inventory. After reaching new highs in the beef cutout, the past several weeks has seen that beef cutout slump back under $200 per hundredweight basis choice. The volume in boxed beef continues to languish, as reflected in the slow movement in domestic demand. With cattle numbers on feed beginning to expand, coupled with the weak demand for beef, it is quite JOE TEALE likely that price weakness will conBroker tinue to prevail over the near term. Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. Despite what the pundits say about the economy improving, with the upcoming tax increases, domestic disposable income is continuing to shrink putting more pressure on demand. This will continue to put the cattle market on the defensive in the weeks, and possibly months, ahead. Therefore, producers should be cognizant of the market and protect inventories as needed. The hog market has been on fire since the middle of March as live prices have eventually moved over the $100/cwt. level basis lean in the middle of June. Good demand for pork products has been the main catalyst behind the strength in the prices over this period. The fact that the packers were showing a strong urge to accumulate inventory helped prices stay strong. At the same time numbers seemed to be in tighter supplies, all of which vaulted prices to the higher levels. Now the concern is beginning to grow that we may be heading into the normal seasonal high evidenced almost every year in early summer and late-spring.

As I look out my window, it’s another rainy day in southeast Minnesota. Sitting here, I wonder what factors will set successful grain producers apart from the competition. Last year, the southwest part of Minnesota experienced drought conditions and poor growing conditions; this year they have great looking crops. In 2012, southeast Minnesota experienced a great growing season and enjoyed record yields. Last year, the yields on my farm near Zumbrota, Minn., were 10 percent better than any crop I have ever grown. This year, we are experiencing a much-different environment, and each day I’m unable to get in the fields and ANDY HUNEKE plant, brings forth another wave AgStar Director, Agbiz & of emotion regarding whether to Trade Credit/Leasing Northfield, Minn. take a prevent plant payment or plant late and hope for the best. As I look at the grain industry which has experienced great fortune over the last five years, I wonder what will eventually cause the industry to shift to lower profitability. Will it be lower prices for a period of several years, the cost of inputs rising rapidly, or a combination of both? I am not here to forecast what factors will cause the shift, but I am concerned with how we will prepare for the shift. As a lender in agriculture, we have been preaching margin management and knowing your cost of production in all segments of agriculture for years. Knowing your costs enables you to make decisions based on knowledge instead of emotion. In addition to margin management, there are many other factors that will need to be considered in order to remain relevant and be prepared for future growth. Have you evaluated your total business structure and financial picture? Are you prepared for

Soybean acreage unknowns should limit downside new crop beans to China this week. This week’s meal sales for this year at 26,600 mt are slowing down to the lowest of the marketing year. New crop meal sales were impressive at 144,600 mt. OUTLOOK: As of the close on June 20, July soybeans were down 19 cents for the week at $14.97 1/2 with November off 13 1/4 cents at $12.85 per bushel. Soybeans traded a moderate range this week, but felt like they were struggling to add any weather risk premium. How many acres will eventually be planted to soybeans is an unknown and should help limit the downside ahead of the June 28 reports. The short-term range in November beans is $12.75 to $13.25 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending June 20: Minneapolis wheat was a dime higher, Chicago up 19 3/4 cents and Kansas City soared 25 1/2 cents higher. August crude oil fell $2.93 to $95.14, heating oil (ULSD) tumbled over 9 cents lower, gasoline (RBOB) was down nearly 11 cents, and natural gas was up 14 cents. The U.S. dollar index was posting a weekly gain of almost 1 1/4 percent.

Make educated plans

At this writing the hog market is overbought and vulnerable to some sort of a setback. Be it a shortterm setback or the seasonal high, the futures market is already showing the anticipation of a break by being discount in the deferred contract months.

With pork cutouts now above the $100/cwt. level, the consideration has to be that demand for pork product may also begin to suffer, as evidenced in the other competitive meats due to the increased prices at the retail level. Producers should approach the market with some caution and use the current strength to protect inventories in the months ahead. ❖

HUNEKE, from pg. 18A opportunities that may lie ahead? Over that last 20 years, as producers have either retired or exited production agriculture, it usually meant an opportunity for other producers to rent or purchase land in 160- to 320-acre increments. If you were able to acquire land segments of this size every couple of years, it was manageable. But take a look around at your neighbors’ operations today. Many producers may be farming anywhere from 300 to 1,000 acres. Are you prepared to acquire an operation of this size? What if multiple operations come available in the same year, which could happen if we see a downturn in profitability? Ultimately, you need to understand your financial picture to know if you are built for growth. Maintaining enough working capital and keeping an eye on your balance sheet will allow you to take advantage of potential opportunities for future growth. Each year, do accrual adjustments on your income to full understand your income related to your balance sheet. Start working closely with your lender now to make sure you have a full understanding of your financial picture. Once you start to understand the true financial picture by using the accrual method, evaluate your balance sheet so that you can start making educated plans for growth.

week, the talk of a ridge building in the Midwest faded and, along with it, prices. Informa’s updated crop forecast didn’t do much to excite anyone with 77.8 million acres anticipated. This is 630,000 higher than the USDA March forecast, but was in-line with traders’ expectations. They kept their yield forecast at 43.9 bu./acre to come up with a crop of 3.366 billion bushels. USDA was using 44.5 bu./acre and 77.1 million acres for a crop of 3.39 billion on the June crop report. Planting progress as of June 16 was 85 percent complete, right at the trade guess and 6 percent behind average. Only 66 percent of the beans had emerged versus 80 percent on average. In the first crop condition report of the year, 64 percent of the beans were rated good/excellent. The monthly NOPA crush at 122.6 million bushels was larger than the trade projection of 117.6 million bushels. The NOPA crush only needs to average 106 million bushels per month to reach the USDA crush estimate. Weekly export sales for old crop beans were just 1.9 million bushels, but were 4 million bushels for new crop. Total commitments have already surpassed the USDA 1.33 billion bushel projection. The USDA announced a 240,000 mt sale of

NYSTROM, from pg. 18A cent below last year. Since the beginning of the crop year back in September, annualized corn grind equates to 4.63 billion bushels. The USDA is currently using 4.65 billion bushels. Weekly export sales for corn were at the lower end of the estimates at 5.3 million bushels for old crop and 3.1 million for new crop. While old crop sales were the best in five weeks, we need to average 5.2 million bushels for each week through August to meet the USDA export projection of 700 million bushels. OUTLOOK: July corn filled the gap left from March 28 this week and December corn threatened the June high of $5.73 1/2 per bushel. As of the close on June 20, July corn was 18 1/4 cents higher at $6.73 1/4 for the week with December surging 27 1/2 cents higher to close at $5.60 1/2 per bushel. What the USDA will publish on the Grain Stocks as of June 1 and Acreage report to be released June 28 will keep traders on the edge of their chairs, as will the changing weather forecasts. And don’t forget to toss in month- and quarter-end for June 28 excitement. SOYBEANS — Old crop soybeans crept into the week while new crop forged ahead with the corn. By midweek, forecasts were again the talk of the trade with the first round of high temperatures moving into the Corn Belt. Old crop basis continued to strengthen with the country selling few old beans and processors trying to extend coverage. Late in the

Not just any trail

e’re on a forest trail in the Chippewa National Forest not far from Walker, Minn. We parked the car on a meandering forest road and decided to take a short day hike. The winding trail starts among large old aspen and red pine. Here it is fairly wide. Below is a swampy emerald green valley with a stream in the middle. There is a beaver lodge in the stream. Wolf and bear scats are on the trail, and thrushes, warblers and noisy blue jays are calling from tree branches. As we walk deeper into the forest the hills rise and fall and, although the trail is blazed and cleared, it becomes a foot path that at times is only a narrow green passage through the trees. Then the forest changes from pine and aspen to dark green balsam and spruce. It will no doubt change again and again. This trail is not just any trail. It is part of the 4,600-mile long North Country National Scenic Trail. It starts in New York and passes through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota before it ends in North Dakota at Lake Sakakawea State Park. The North Country Trail was established by the U.S. Congress in 1980 and is administered by the National Park Service, managed by federal, state and local agencies, and built and maintained primarily by the volunteers of the North Country Trail Association and its partners. In Minnesota the Parks and Trails Council of Minnesota organizes trail cleaning trips each year to maintain and improve the NCT as well as the Superior Trail which connects to the NCT and follows the North Shore of Lake Superior. The two segments of the Superior Trail equal a total of 275 miles of spectacular hiking from near Duluth to the Canadian border. Although the entire 4,600 miles of the NCT are not passable the Chippewa National Forest boasts over 72 miles of trail. West of the Chippewa the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and volunteers from the Laurentian Lakes Chapter of the North Country Trail Association, just completed a 21mile section of the trail in Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge near Detroit Lakes, Minn. To the east, in the Superior National Forest, large segments of the trail are complete also. The interconnected 45-mile long Kekakabic Trail and the 65-mile long Border Route Trail offer hiking access to Minnesota’s canoe country. For more information, log on to www.northcountrytrail.org. ❖
