Groups practice the limited government they preach GUEBERT, from pg. 2 joined Heritage to undermine the House version of the farm bill in June. Heritage then kept up the attack and, according to most farm bill watchers, was the intellectual force behind House GOP leaders’ July move to separate the two traditional elements of all modern farm bills, farm support programs and food assistance, for stand-alone votes. After it got the vote it sought — the farm programs-only bill narrowly passed July 11 with just Republican votes — Heritage blew its top. The very reason to split farm programs from food programs, it insisted, had been “wasted” by “the passage of this bill” that contained no farm program reform. In fact, Heritage foamed, GOP leaders “made this bill even worse — by sneaky changes … so that some of the costliest and most indefensible programs no longer expire after five years …” And, it went on, “It would spend more money than Obama on the largest farm program, crop insurance.” Club for Growth was even angrier: The bill looked like “a ‘rope-a-dope’ exercise (where) House leadership

There’s more than one way to skin a goat, so to speak Fair time is winding down around the state, and with each passing year I am amazed at the number of kids who put the time in to take animals to the county fair. It’s usually the sheep show that entertains me the most. Some sheep have been worked with so much that they could practically be present at the family table on a chair instead of a platter. Others have to be dragged in and out of the show ring, head down

and feet dug in, skidding all the way in and out. It’s reminiscent of taking my husband to the dentist, except for that “skidding out” part. Our boys decided one winter they wanted to take goats to our fair. Our farm at the time was indigenous to sheep, and as livestock went, had only otherwise seen hogs (not counting the mouse sightings in the house from time to time). My husband really didn’t want to start raising goats, but told

Dakota Indians were great caretakers of the soil

While the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 lasted just six weeks, the issues surrounding its cause began years earlier and its aftermath still affects Minnesota and the nation to this day. Between 400 and 600 white civilians and soldiers and an unknown number of Dakota were killed. More than 300 Dakota had initially been condemned to death, but President Lincoln commuted the sentences of 264 men to prison terms.

In 1863, those who survived were forcibly moved to reservations in the Dakota Territory and what is now Nebraska. Punitive expeditions in 1863 and 1864 resulted in hundreds of Dakota being killed or forced further westward. —Minnesota Historical Soceity

Dakota wanted to become farmers like the whites, the United States built them a house, provided livestock and helped get them started. By 1862, there were about 250 Dakota families on farms. According to LaBatte the 1851 treaties provided annuities to the Indian people for 50 years with the hope that during this time many would turn to farming. He said the treaties were very generous, very helpful in terms of providing food, housing, seed for getting crops on their farms, livestock, blacksmith services, carpenters, doctors, and teachers. Why these actions? Because the U.S. government recognized these Indian communities as sovereign nations so treated them as they would other foreign countries. But the reality is that the Indians were only about as sovereign as the government would permit them to be. Dakota, Lakota and Nakota LaBatte explained that at one time virtually the entire Sioux nation lived in the Mille Lacs Lake area. The Sioux who migrated farthest to the west became known as the Lakota. The Sioux who stayed in the Minnesota area are the Dakota. The Sioux between the Lakota and the Dakota are the Nakota. As they grew, the western Sioux — meaning the Dakota, Lakota and Nakota — moved away from the

When the fighting ended, some Dakota fled west or into Canada. About 1,700 non-combatant Dakota and mixed-race people who surrendered — mostly women, children and the elderly — were held over the winter of 1862-63 in an internment camp at Fort Snelling, suffering severe hardship. As many as 300 died.

U.S.-Dakota War of 1862

The government’s intentions were to show them about farming and hope they would take it up and become mostly self-sufficient. But little progress was made until the 1850s when more Indians were going out to start individual farms rather than communal farms.

Mille Lacs area; the Dakota traveling southward along the Mississippi River toward Winona and Prairie Du Chien, to more easily do business with the fur traders. Unrest between the Ojibwa and Dakota tribes eventually resulted in all of the Dakota Indians leaving the Mille Lacs area. Meanwhile the Lakota and Nakota tribes were moving west with the buffalo herds. LaBatte said the first treaty between the United States and the Dakota Indians was in 1805. In 1829, one Dakota village was introduced to the European or white method of farming. The 1837 Treaty provided for government farmers to plow communal fields for each village and start teaching the Indians how to farm as the whites. “The government’s intentions were to show them about farming and hope they would take it up and become mostly self-sufficient. But little progress was made until the 1850s when more Indians were going out to start individual farms rather than communal farms,” said LaBatte. He thinks some of those Indians were beginning to see that farming was a better way of life but they still hunted and trapped and gathered as communal groups. But as they hunted beyond their reservation boundaries they were seeing more and more whites competing against them for the game. Not all wanted to farm; they preferred their hunting and communal life. However following the reservation era in Minnesota many of these Indians became

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer “Because my ancestors were involved in the Dakota War of September 1862, I decided to research the history of this notable Minnesota event, because so many people weren’t getting it right.” That’s the straightforward comment of John LaBatte John LaBatte, descendent of Dakota and Whites. Wasicun Nazin is his Dakota name. Retired in 1988 from a computer programmer career, LaBatte now lives in New Ulm, Minn., and is doing presentations on the Dakota conflict simply to correct the misleading commentary of others who, perhaps because of lack of history, are improperly sharing “the rest of the story.” He’s particularly informed on the farming history of the Dakota Indians, relating that the Dakota Indians were caretakers of the soil. “It was said that many of the Dakota farmers were as good or better than the neighboring white farmers. Corn (called maize in those days) was their primary crop but wheat, potatoes, turnips, rutabagas, oats and onions also were grown by the Indian farmers. Plus they had communal gardens, each village within a subgroup of a tribe,” he said. Of course the Indians were also good at gathering wild food such as turnips and the various berries, however hunting was their primary food source before the whites. History doesn’t detail the size of those early Indian farms. LaBatte suggested perhaps no more than five to 10 acres per farm. “The government would break the prairies for them with special breaking plows, and would then provide seed and teach them how to grow these crops, provide for livestock and even how to build houses,” he said. He explained this was part of the treaty process established by the government, hoping the Native Americans would become farmers like the white settlers and, in the process, become self-sufficient.

LaBatte questioned if there are any full-blooded Dakota Indians still living in Minnesota. “On the reservations of Lower Sioux, Upper Sioux, Prairie Island and Shakopee there used to be Indian farmers but I think now casinos have replaced the incentive to farm for some.” “Understand and move on” He questioned whether the U.S. government has an ongoing indebtedness to the Indian nation. “We need to understand what happened and then we need to move on,” said LaBatte. “We shouldn’t be apologizing. There shouldn’t be reparations. Everybody talks about the broken treaties but no one seems to remember that in the 1900s there were a series of law suits again the United States government by the Dakota Indians and in the 1970s the Dakota descendants of those in Minnesota were paid settlements. The U.S. government recognized it didn’t do things right so payments were made to all enrolled Minnesota Dakota descendants. “This was money none of the Tribal members expected because this law suit had been going on for so many years.” A new monument in Mankato was dedicated this past December to the 38 Sioux that were hanged on Dec. 26, 1862, the largest mass execution in U.S. history.

The movie “Dakota 38” — available on YouTube at bit.ly/dakota38 — portrays this particular event according to LaBatte. “It’s important to know that this history is complicated,” he said. “Unfortunately to me there are politicians who are not historians but are revising this history; embellishing it to make it worse. The truth was sad enough but needs to be shared about both Whites and Indians; not just what happened to the Indians after the Dakota conflict.” LaBatte has written a booklet titled “Historic Fort Ridgely” which features 25 essays related to events of the Dakota War of 1862.

him on July 25 he noted that the rain did cause some flooding, “but didn’t do much to the crop.” Property around the area received some damage but the crops fared well in the Chris Messner storm. Corn that was tippy two weeks ago due to wind has straightened out and is “starting to tassel.” For the most part Messner believes the crops looks “OK.” The concern is that the crop was planted late. “If we don’t look at the calendar, the crop is good,” Messner said. Corn height is normal for this time of year; it’s “made up a little more ground.” With cooler weather forecasted for a few days, that may slow the corn growth, and any slowing down at this point is discouraging. “We’re not on track by any means,” he said. The beans Messner planted are mostly at the R2 stage with flowering and some pods coming along. He said there’s “potential for an average bean crop.” He will be spraying some of the beans again — aphids have been spotted but they’re “not at a level you’re concerned at.” Messner has planted oats in the “prevent plant” areas in his fields. Some spots on their ground never got planted due to being too wet and now he’s trying to get in there to work that ground. As the crops continue to grow Messner feels he’s “got to at least be optimistic.” He warns, though, that “an early frost would really be a bad thing.”

over two weeks since they received rain in the area. The almost inch of rain they got then was good, he said, but it’s “starting to dry out a little.” Even with the lack of needed Scott Johnson moisture the crops are progressing well. The corn is “pretty good, some early stuff is starting to shoot up some tassels,” Johnson said. While it maybe a little behind, it has “caught up quite well.” The areas that had yellowed corn “all kind of greened up.” The heat that corn thrives on has eased up in the Starbuck area this week and there was a chance of rain expected throughout the upcoming weekend. Their replant beans are “starting to pop up pretty good,” he said and, in general, beans are looking “pretty decent.” He’s finished cleaning out the bins, and will start looking ahead at harvest preparations. Looking at the crops where they stand, Johnson feels they have fared better than what he’d expected earlier this season. While this year’s crop won’t be a bin-buster it should be “close to average.” With the start to the planting season so harsh in the area, sometimes average is good. The Messners Northfield, Minn. A little over 12 days ago, the Messner farm received three and a half inches of rain in three to four hours. The area hasn’t seen rain since. This is just another example of the challenging growing season that Chris Messner has faced. When The Land spoke to

The Laubenthals Swea City, Iowa A week ago Charlie Laubenthal wrapped up the 2013 planting season as he finished planting seed oats — a mind-boggling three months after Charlie Laubenthal the season began. When The Land spoke to Laubenthal on July 22, he was keeping busy on the farm finishing projects before the start of harvest that, unfortunately, will be here all too soon. Whether farmers in the area are ready for it or not, fall is just around the corner. Laubenthal said he is done spraying beans and is spraying his road ditches and tree lines for weeds. He has put away his planting machinery for the year and continues to work on the hog barns at the farm site with the goal of completing them in a week. “We’re supposed to put pigs in the buildings by mid-August.” The corn in some of Laubenthal’s fields look good while others look like a “rollercoaster ride” — some higher, some lower. With the corn 50 percent tasseled Laubenthal estimates the crop is “at least a couple weeks behind.” Beans, meanwhile, are “coming around nice.” The sandy soil areas are stressed due to the lack of moisture; “an inch of rain would be welcomed,” Laubenthal said. This season conditions in the area have gone from one to extreme to another — too much rain when trying to get the crops in, to not enough moisture when growth is critical in the plants. It’s not just the crops and pig buildings that keep Laubenthal busy in the summer, but the community celebrations and fairs as well. Next week he and his family will head to Algona to attend the Kossuth County Fair and cheer on daughter Alexis as she competes in the Kossuth County Fair Pageant. The summer is in full swing with fall not too far behind. Laubenthal is keeping his sense of humor throughout this difficult growing season: “We’ve never worked so hard to put in an ugly crop,” he said. While the crop may not win any beauty pageants, as long as it continues to grow and conditions cooperate, Laubenthal may get something out of those fields yet. ❖

By KRISTIN KVENO The Land Correspondent The Brandts Ada, Minn. The Brandt farm has been fortunate to avoid the deluge of rain that areas all around it received during planting and early growing season. Danny Brandt But now Danny Brandt would like the rain to know it’s welcome at his farm. “We could use a shot of rain,” he said. When The Land spoke to Brandt on July 22 he noted that it’s “starting to get dry around here.” The farm received just over two-tenths of an inch of rain in the last month. The good news, though, is that there was a chance of rain in the forecast for the remainder of the week. Corn is tasseling and starting to silk. In terms of moisture “for what it’s gone through it still looks pretty good,” Brandt said. This year compared to last year isn’t so different when it comes to moisture, though 2012 started off dryer. The corn did well last year so there’s optimism for similar results with this year’s crop. Beans are flowering and Brandt reports that most fields are looking good. “I haven’t seen any aphids yet.” The wheat crop is still two weeks away from combining. It looks “pretty decent” with heads filling, although “I’m not looking for a monster wheat crop,” he said. On the hog front, there are four litters in and Brandt was waiting on one more, with 10 to 13 piglets in a litter. The fans and sprinklers are continuing to keep the animals comfortable — “They haven’t suffered at all,” he said. He checks on them four to five times a day to ensure they have adequate water and are staying cool. Brandt will soon begin to get the combines ready and check on fall tillage equipment. He’ll also be making sure bins are cleared out. Harvest is not too far away — hopefully continued good weather and good soaking rains will help ensure a happy harvest at the Brandt farm. The Johnsons Starbuck, Minn. Scott Johnson looks no further than his lawn to tell him how the corn is doing. According to his lawn, his corn could use some rain.

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles Grain Angles Cool-down timed Cattle struggle Prepare for a right for corn with soft demand downward trend The following market analysis is for the week ending Aug. 2. CORN — The below-normal temperature regime in much of the Midwest that began sometime after the third week of July is expected to continue on most of the extended weather forecasts. The cool down came at the right time for corn entering the reproductive stage, even if there are key spots in the western Corn Belt that are short on rainfall. Our national corn yield estimate currently stands at 155.1 bushels per acre, which compares to the July U.S. DepartTIM EMSLIE ment of Agriculture estimate of CHS Hedging Inc. 156.5 bu./acre. A key component St. Paul of our yield estimate is acreageweighted temperature and precipitation data. The preliminary reading on July weather shows temperatures 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than average, and rainfall about 31 percent less than average. Weekly exports sales were strong with 134 thousand metric tons for old-crop and 1.1 mmt for new crop. Next marketing year commitments are the highest of the last five years for this point in time. The weekly ethanol production rate continued to slide for a third week, coming in at 832,000 barrels/day. If the production rate remains at the 832,000 barrels/day, marketing year corn use will be very close to the 4,650 million bushels estimate from the July USDA report. There was an interesting development in the world fertilizer marketplace when Russian potash producer OAO Uralkali withdrew from one of the world’s two potash marketing cartels, the Belarus Potash Company.

The livestock markets have been relatively quiet and extremely choppy over the past several weeks. Prices have been both up and down during the period and have ended this period near unchanged to just slightly higher. The cattle market in particular has been nearly steady in the last half of July with cash prices remaining in a narrow range while the futures market has slid slightly lower, closing the wide basis between cash and futures. As we move into the month of August, the basis should close further or the threat of deliveries will become more likely due to the positive basis. Overall the cattle market conJOE TEALE tinues to struggle with soft Broker demand for beef. This despite the Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. fact that the beef cutout has now dropped below $190 per hundredweight basis choice in the past few weeks, the lowest level in months. This reflects the ongoing problem that has faced the cattle market for months: the weakening demand. Cattle numbers still remain lower than last year, but the fact that the finished weights are greater than a year ago has kept total beef production slightly lower than the previous year. The consumption of beef in the United States has been on the decline for years and export business, while fair, has not been enough to offset the decreased sales in the domestic market. Until this situation changes, it is not likely that any sustained rally in prices can be forthcoming in the near future. Producers should continue to monitor the market conditions and protect their inventories as warranted. The hog market, on the other hand, has been a bit more active in price discovery over the past several weeks. Both cash and futures prices have darted

Over the past five years I’ve noticed grain producers are using a less-disciplined approach to grain marketing than they have in the past. Many producers haven’t been strategic in their grain marketing but they’ve still been rewarded with profits (due to the high crop prices we’ve experienced over the past few years). Unfortunately, this has led some to forget about forward marketing all together. Recently, I’ve spoken with some corn and soybean buyers and they’ve indicated that there is much less forward selling today than there has been in previous years and there is very little 2014 crop contracted. Now is the time ANDY HUNEKE AgStar Director for producers to get back to looking to the future for opportunities. Agribusiness & Trade Credit/Leasing Northfield, Minn. I think we can learn from the protein sector. The protein sector has gone through a large amount of adversity in the last five years and successful producers have utilized a very strict margin management strategy, always covering their inputs and sales at the same time. As the grain sector is heading into an environment where a disciplined margin management strategy will separate the successful operations from those that aren’t, we can follow the lead of the protein sector and the lessons they have learned. As the markets have shown a downward trend in corn, many believe prices will recover and markets will rise. Unfortunately, that isn’t necessarily the case. Now is the time to make sure your operation is prepared if the trend continues lower. Here are a few things you can do now.

HUNEKE, from pg. 18 your cost of production and practicing margin management. When agronomy retailers start offering options for prepaid fertilizer, it’s important to put those costs into your cost structure to determine if it’s the right time to purchase the input. If your numbers tell you that you can purchase the input and maintain a profit, purchase the input. It’s important, however, to remain disciplined. When making the purchase, you need to protect it by selling some commodity. You can use various means to protect that purchase: a hedge-toarrive contract, fixed contract or utilizing a put and call strategy. Rest assured with a quality risk management program Having a quality risk management program, such as crop insurance, is the foundation for executing a plan while still sleeping at night. Crop insurance gives you the ability to forward sell and take advantage of opportunities that arise. Get it in writing Another valuable resource is having your marketing plan in writing. It is proven that when a marketing plan is

written down producers tend to adhere to it. Key components of the plan include price goal and timeframe for that goal. That way, if you haven’t had an opportunity for your target price, you still have a date to execute a sale. As changes occur within the year, you can adjust your plan accordingly. Looking back, some of the best marketing decisions I’ve made were when I utilized the margin management strategy to purchase inputs. There have been a few times when fertilizer prices have come down, but if I look at the time I purchased the input, I was also able to sell the crop at a higher price than the current board price. If you practice margin management and lock in profits along the way, it adds up to a profitable year.

away from aggressively bidding for live inventories. The next several weeks could be very interesting and will likely set the tone of the hog market heading into the winter months. With the pork cutout now below the $100/cwt., pork still represents the best value in the entire meat complex which could still provide some support to the market in the near term. Producers are urged to keep the market information at hand and protect inventories if needed. ❖

That fueled the perception that commitment to QE as needed remained in place, even

beans have a longer window to take advantage of rainfall, making July weather less critical than July and August weather considered together. However, we have trimmed our soybean yield estimate from the preseason expectation by 0.5 bu./acre to 44.1 based on the preliminary rainfall and temperature data. Export sales were solid at 79 tmt for old-crop and 1.0 mmt for new-crop. Daily sales announcements showed a total of 410 tmt for 2013-14 sold to unknown. OUTLOOK: The November soybean contract is trading near price levels last seen in June 2012 before the drought hit. The market defined lows on a closing basis at $11.53 during that period. The market will remain focused on the weather pattern during August, which looks cool and somewhat dry at this point. Funds shed nearly 35,000 contracts of their net length during the last reporting period, but remain net long about 31,000. The first key resistance point on rallies is $12.23-12.27. Demand is solid, but the natural focus on the supply side at this time of year will drive the markets. The August USDA supply/demand report is on Aug. 12. Emslie’s Extras: This week saw the release of the first estimate of second quarter Gross Domestic Product in the United States, Federal Reserve and European Central Bank policy meetings, and the July Employment report, highlighting a heavy confluence of economic reports and events during the week that saw U.S. equity markets reach new record highs. The S&P 500 was up about 0.9 percent for the week ahead of the close on Friday, establishing the new record high print of 1707.85 on Thursday. The economic news from the United States was more mixed in nature than the push to a record high on the stock market might suggest, but the central banks both

EMSLIE, from pg. 18 implies their profit model will be to move higher volumes at lower prices, especially directly to China which may be able buy potash at $300/ton compared to $400 on world markets currently. The publicly traded members of the Canadian potash cartel fell sharply on the prospect of lower prices. This should mean lower potash prices at the farm gate next season. In the long-run the lower price expectation already has put huge question marks over some projects on the drawing board, including ones in Canada and England. Without production expansion, the supplydemand balance could tighten. OUTLOOK: December corn attempted a very modest mid-week rally before falling to a new 2013 low by the end of the week. For the week, the December contract was down 12.25 cents, and the September contract was down 16 cents. On the latest Commodity Futures Trading Commission report, non-index funds were short 182,000 contracts, the biggest net-short since at least 2006. Until the market shows some sign of bottoming, there is no trigger for funds to abandon their short positions. With the new multi-year low in the December 2013 contract made during the week, the next previous low on the chart was made all the way back in November 2010 at $4.60. On the upside, the December contract made monthly highs in March to June just above the $5.70 mark, defining resistance. SOYBEANS — New-crop soybeans were the focus of selling this week, declining on 4 of the 5 sessions and ultimately losing 47 cents on the week. The old-crop August contract held in a little better, but was still down 18.75 cents on the week. Crop condition slipped by 1 point in the good/excellent category to 63 percent, but remains above the five-year average. Soy-

ing transportation to and from plants. The Upper Midwest experienced a reprieve from hot and humid conditions, seeing milk production increases following declines of 8-10 percent the prior week. Heat and humidity eased in the Northeast, but plants were still seeing lower milk receipts, as much as 10 percent in some areas, according to DMN. ■ Updating things on the fsarm bill as Congress heads into its August recess — The National Milk Producers Federation’s Chris Galen reported in his Thursday DairyLine program that “There’s been no visible progress in trying to bring leaders from the House and Senate to negotiate a compromise barm bill.” He said it’s up to dairy farmers, in the next four to five weeks, to let their elected official know that “failure is not an option” to get a bill passed before the end of September, which is the end of the fiscal year and when some farm programs expire. He suggested farmers visit lawmakers at local fairs and meetings and log on to the NMPF website — www.nmpf.org — and use the “Write to Congress” feature. ■ The deadline to enter the 30th World Forage Analysis Superbowl for standard and brown midrib corn silage categories is Aug. 15.

MIELKE, from pg. 20 gle between bullish and bearish fundamentals. The market will likely remain choppy until it gets a more definitive direction.” It later warned that “Large corn and soybean crops and falling feed costs are expected to improve onfarm margins leading to strong milk production later this year and early next. Oceania’s production season is also expected to get off to a decent start in the next month or so. Expectations for stronger production here and in Oceania have sent Class III spiraling lower.” USDA’s Crop Progress report showed 71 percent of the nation’s corn is silking, compared with only 43 percent the previous week and a five-year average of 75 percent. Corn condition was steady, with all but 11 percent of the crop rated fair to excellent. All but 9 percent of the soybean crop was rated as fair to excellent. ■ Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $1.7825, up a quarter-cent on the week. Extra Grade remained at $1.73. AMS powder averaged $1.7479, up 1.2 cents, and dry whey averaged 57.91 cents, down 0.3 cent. Milk production continues to be impacted by weather across the United States. In the Southwest and Northwest, hot temperatures were causing milk declines at the farm. Some areas of the Pacific Northwest were seeing temperatures in the triple digits, 6-19 degrees above normal. Utah and Idaho saw daytime highs above 100 degrees, affecting production and conception rates. Central Valley, California, saw cooler nighttime temperatures resulting in increased milk flow. Localized, heavy rains were common in Arizona, interrupt-

So when this came into my world I couldn’t resist.” According to Randall there are now about 2,000 members in the Association. This number is not likely to grow since “speeder” cars are hard to find and most operators are senior citizens with some unused cash and a special love for the rail. Randall’s rig is powered by a four-cylinder engine. Some use a kerosene/gasoline mixture. Pickups with special hydraulic rail car wheels are the inspection vehicle of choice these days. David Voeltz, a program coordinator of the South Dakota Highway Department, was coordinator of this special two-day central Minnesota event. He said events like this occur across the nation virtually every weekend. “These start as early as March depending upon what section of the country we’re in, and often run into December as well,” said Voeltz. He said younger people — under age 40 — likely have no idea of what speeder cars are all about since they were replaced with pickups and special rail line wheels in the early 1970s. Voeltz admits to owning two of these unusual rigs but says the association has members who own as many as 10 of these little railroad scuttle bugs.

the speeder, then driver and passenger simply twist the car 180 degrees and drop it back on the rails. Others merely lift their car off the track by hand before doing the turnaround. Short recalls when this particular rail road line was virtually abandoned in 1992 but, thanks to hard work and some dedicated volunteers, the line got reopened and upgraded so that it is now a functioning 98.6-mile freight line owned by the Minnesota Valley Rail Authority, funded by major users of the line such as Twin Cities Western out of Glencoe hauling grain, ethanol, gravel, salts and other commodities. Short said upgrading and restoring this venerable rail line cost nearly $40 million, assisted with a $4.8 million loan with zero percent interest from Minnesota Department of Transportation. Government grants and state bonding covered the rest of this restoration. Short indicated this line now moves about 8,000 cars per year. “And that equates to about 32,000 trucks removed from Minnesota highways,” he noted. Rick Randall of Minneapolis purchased his first “speeder” car in 1995. He calls his involvement “and obscure hobby. I’ve always been interested in railroads.

BACK ROADS, from pg. 40 “When you can find a speeder, prices run from $2,500 to $10,000,” said Short. Outside of nostalgia, especially if you’ve been a long-time railroad admirer, a primary purpose of these events is to remind people that rail was once a primary means of moving people, and should still be a major tool for transporting people. “Drawing attention to what railroads are all about is a mission of this National Railroad Association,” said Short. He sees no reason why this particular line from Hanley Falls to Norwood-Young America can’t once again be a people mover, too. “There used to be four passenger trains each day running through Belview, Minn. We’re talking expanded commuter rail in the Twin Cities. So who knows, maybe someday we’ll have daily passenger train service between this area and the Cities. It used to run twice daily from Minneapolis to Watertown, S.D.” On this run to Hanley Falls, a lunch was served to all 46 train “engineers” and passengers. These little rigs don’t need a turn table to get going the other direction. Some have a hydraulic cylinder that lifts

Rail speeders

THE LAND, AUGUST 9, 2013

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

eats are very limited but for a most unusual “riding the rails” advenS ture, catching one of the events of the

North American Railcar Operations ranks at the very top. We’re talking about rail track motor cars called ‘Speeders’ gathered at the rail line adjoining the North Redwood Elevator on June 15 and 16. Long-time railroad buff Gene Short of Curry, Minn., described this gathering of hobbyists who have purchased some of the old two-passenger units used by railroad employees to periodically check the rails for safety inspection. On this

On the rails to Hanley Falls, Minn.

day, 26 of these speeder cars departed the 24-mile run to Hanley Falls for a “hands on” experience of what riding the rails was really all about. Short says this association is now a nationwide organization and whenever a group can “reserve” a section of rail for a half-day or all-day run, these folks with pickups and trailers haul their speeders to that location for another riding the rail adventure. Short explained that each of these little rigs has its own gas engine and can reach speeds of more than 20 mph on a good track. “Some don’t have mufflers, so they

can be a bit noisy. Most drivers and their passengers wear ear mufflers however,” said Short, who also indicated this era of rail checking speeders dates back to the late 1940s and ’50s, with many of them manufactured by a railroad firm at Farmington, Minn. If you’re old enough you might remember the days when “pumper cars” were the means of moving rail employees each day. Just as the name implies, two men facing each other would pump their way down the rail line. See BACK ROADS, pg. 21
