OPINION

1911 Minnesota Legislature appropriated funds to establish two demonstration farms where local problems could be explored by Department of Agriculture personnel. 1912 A committee representing the state, the Board of Regents of the University of Minnesota and the Department of Agriculture selected and purchased 246 acres just west and south of Waseca naming it the Southeast Demonstration Farm and Experiment Station of the University of Minnesota. The land was purchased from R.P. and D. Ward at $125/acre. 1913 First year of operations at the Southeast Demonstration Farm and Experiment Station. Albert Hoversten employed as “farm manager” and served as first superintendent of station, 1913-18. 1919 R.E. Hodgson appointed superintendent. Served 1919-60. 1925 Name changed from “Southeast Demonstration Farm and Experiment Station” to “Southeast Experiment Station.” 1940 Station size increased by purchase of 351 acres of land purchased from D., E., and V. Ward for $40,000.

1950-71 Purchased additional 20.75 acres of miscellaneous land from E. and V. Ward and W. and R. Papke and E.

Served 1964-70. 1969 Legislative action called for phase-out of the Southern School of Agriculture and for creation of a technical college. The new college and the Southern Experiment Station were established as separate administrative units. 1970 Richard H. Anderson appointed superintendent of the Southern Experiment Station. Served 1970-90. 1972 Purchase of 232 acres of land from K. and J. Priebe, at a cost of $145,000, brought the total University land holdings at Waseca to approximately 850 acres.

1982 An advisory committee was commissioned with 15 charter members to “advise the SES on research and related agricultural or other needs.” 1990 David D. Walgenbach appointed superintendent of the Southern Experiment Station. Served 1990-2000. 1994 Purchased 120 acres of land from K. and J.

renewable energy, bio-product development and mitigating environmental impacts. Buhr rattled off a number of statistics — such as the leap over the past 100 years in average corn yields from 30 bushels per acre to 156 bu./acre — as a testament to the dedication of men and women at university research centers across Minnesota, Iowa and elsewhere. It’s impossible to know what the next 100 years will bring, but if public investment in agronomic research continues, and the spirit of Borlaug’s work remains alive, my daughter’s generation and those to follow need never go hungry. Several books have been written on Borlaug’s life and achievements, including Leon Hesser’s “The Man Who Fed the World: Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Norman Borlaug and His Battle to End World Hunger.” Check your local library or online bookstore for this book and others.

The humanitarian’s giant impact on agriculture and world hunger aside, SROC’s centennial was marked by a wide variety of entertainment and education. Visitors had been invited to bring garden or field plant samples for identification and insect or disease diagnoses. Such public outreach is nothing new to the Waseca site. Bohnsack said that, as a child, he had visited the center with his father, who brought a problematic weed for agronomists there to identify — it was foxtail. Guests at SROC’s centennial party were treated to free food, a corn-husking contest, horsedrawn trolley rides, a corn maze, games and projects for children, beautifully produced historical displays, and a visit from none other than Goldy Gopher. But despite all the entertainment and family friendly activities going on at the celebration, the bottom line at a place like SROC needs to be hard results to justify the public’s investment. Research today focuses on increasing crop and animal production efficiencies, while also including projects related to

THE LAND, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013

The naïve advice of ardent activists can kill. Last spring, Paul Beckwith of Sierra Club Canada predicted that the Arctic seas would be ice-free this summer. (So did Britain’s BBC network.) This exciting adventure opportunity attracted a variety of yachts, sailboats, rowboats and kayaks owners to try sailing the fabled Northwest Passage. As a former sailboat owner I can understand their excitement, but my heart aches for the agonies they now face. The Arctic sea ice suddenly expanded 60 percent this fall, after the coldest summer in the modern Alaska temperature record. The passage is now impassable. More than a dozen of the boats are trapped, apparently even including a group of tiny American jet-ski “personal watercraft” that were attempting to cross from the east coast of Russia to the North Atlantic. Arctic observers are now warning that even Canadian icebreakers might not be able to rescue them. The Northwest Passage blog reminds us that fall super storms are a potentially deadly fact in Alaska. “It is only a matter of time. ... Give Mother Nature her due time and she will move billions of tons of sea ice and push it up against the Alaska Arctic coast — effectively closing the door to exit the Arctic ice from western Canada. ... No icebreakers are going to be able to offer any assistance. Mother Nature is mightier than all the icebreakers put together.” Note that the Atlantic exit is already problematic.

THE LAND, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 << www.TheLandOnline.com >>

In recognition of one of the agricultural industry’s leaders, the Minnesota Ag and Rural Leadership Program has established an endowment in honor of Curt Watson from Renville, Minn. Watson passed away in 2012, but leaves a lasting impact on his family, community and the agricultural industry. Watson served as a past president of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and farmed with his family. Jerry Demmer, another leader, friend and fellow farmer, said that Watson “was a great advocate for corn growers and their mission. He didn’t hold back on asking tough questions that sometimes people didn’t want to hear the answer. If he didn’t get the answer he would go and seek the answers out. Sometimes, instead of asking why, he’d ask ‘why not’? Why can’t we do this?” Watson was also passionate about helping younger people in agriculture, and served as a mentor to many. Watson valued family, agriculture and leadership. A group of farmers from around the United States who knew and respected him have contributed seed money for the Curt Watson-MARL Endowment. Watson’s friends, family and colleagues hope that this seed money will be leveraged by contributions from others. Proceeds from the Curt Watson Endowment will be used to help the MARL Program provide a dynamic leadership development program for active and engaged adult agricultural and rural leaders in Minnesota. Every two years a MARL class of approximately 30 participants is selected following an open application and interview process. These leaders participate in a series of nine in-state seminars, a national study tour and an international study tour.

From the Fields: Looking forward to getting harvest done The Brandts Ada, Minn.

The Johnsons Starbuck, Minn.

Johnson farm. The Land spoke to Scott Johnson on Sept. 18, the night before he planned to begin soybean harvest. He expects that combining will be in full swing by next Scott Johnson week. The inch of rain the farm received a few days ago won’t delay harvest; in fact, Johnson is grateful for the moisture as “hopefully our tillage will work up a little nicer.” The weather is humid with more chances of rain in the forecast for the area. Johnson is “expecting not a great year on the beans,” though he knows that you “can’t tell how they’ll be until we harvest.” The beans that were damaged by hail dried faster than the unaffected beans. “If everything went well we’d be done with beans in two weeks,” Johnson said. While he’s not optimistic for a good bean crop he feels that corn’s “got a chance to get some pretty decent yields.” The dry weather really took a toll on the crops but Johnson is hopeful that corn will fare better than the beans. “By the middle of October we should be getting into corn,” Johnson said.

At the Johnson farm it will be “pretty busy harvesting in the next two to four weeks,” he said. After a growing season that was filled with rain, hail and drought, getting the 2013 crop harvested will be a welcome relief.

The Messners Northfield, Minn.

On Chris Messner’s farm they finally “caught some rain.” Messner hopes that that 1.1 inches of rain is going to “help the beans some.” Chris Messner When The Land spoke to Messner on Sept. 17 he believed that the moisture the soybean fields received “probably saved three to five bushels.” He knows though that it’s “not a very good bean crop,” with harvest at least three weeks away. Messner is hopeful that he will get a 40-bushel crop or something close to that. With the corn crop, Messner expects that there’s “probably going to be some stalk issues,” more specifically cannibalism of the stalk due to the lack of rain. The weakness of the stalks will vary according to the location and hybrid. Messner predicts he will be combining corn sometime in the first week of October. Corn is expected to

The weather around Charlie Laubenthal’s farm has been “pretty decent.” His crops need that “pretty decent” weather to Charlie Laubenthal continue for as long as possible. The Land spoke to Laubenthal on Sept. 18, and he was relieved that frost wasn’t in the forecast. Fall is coming no matter how much farmers are wishing it away to get more time for the crops to mature before a frost. Laubenthal’s soybean crop is “looking all right but are green.” The aphids continue to plague the lateplanted beans, though Laubenthal believes that it has just gotten too late in the season to spray them. Corn in the Laubenthal fields is in varying degrees of maturity, with some corn that can be harvested today and corn that won’t be ready for some time. He predicts that “by the first of October we’ll be harvesting corn.” The current grain market prices have been concerning for Laubenthal — “$4 corn is not real profitable.” With the prices where they are, he believes that “there’ll be a lot of corn going in bins.” He also knows that the market could swing the other way — “the prices could rally, you never know.” Bottom line: “there’s lot of uncertainties,” Laubenthal said. This growing season has been a struggle right from the start for Laubenthal and he won’t be sad when harvest finally ends it. “I was ready for this year to wrap up back in May.” ❖

Sugar beet pre-haul is complete for Danny Brandt. The Land spoke to him on Sept. 18 as he reported that the sugar content was in the Danny Brandt “upper-teens to low20s.” Brandt planned to begin the soybean harvest that day. He did take some beans off the field on Sept. 12 and found that they ran 11 percent moisture, “a little better than I thought,” Brandt said. All his beans are seed beans grown for Asgrow. He knows that bean harvest “will take quite a while.” Last year it took two weeks to combine 800 acres as Brandt had to clean out the machinery between varieties. The corn is “starting to black layer.” The crop is still in the 30 to 40 percent range. Brandt was happy to see that “our stalks are really strong.” He predicts that he “won’t be doing much corn before the 10th of October.” If the fields get a frost, Brandt expects that it will be a week or two after the frost that he would be able to start combining. He is “a little more optimistic” about this year’s crop — “I think it will be a decent crop.” Brandt is also gearing up for beet harvest starting on Oct. 1. He believes that it should take “10 days to two weeks to dig them.” As a seasoned beet producer he knows there’s bound to be heat and frost shutdowns. With so much going on in the next couple of weeks, Brandt always is cognizant of the importance of being careful: “Safety is a big issue.” A good reminder for all to be careful in the following weeks as the craziness of harvest begins in earnest.

Formula helps when estimating soybean crop yield potential Soybean producers can easily get an idea of the yield potential of their crops with a Purdue Extension soybean specialist’s calculation method. Soybean yield potential is built on many factors, including the genetics selected, management decisions during the season and the weather. Yield components of soybeans are pods, seed size and number of seeds per pod. “Individual plant production varies, and every field will vary based on pests, soils, fertility and other factors,” said Shaun Casteel. “But I’ve simplified the process of estimating soybean yields so that producers can scout multiple areas quickly while maintaining representative estimates.” Casteel’s system is based on estimated yield in one ten-thousandth of an acre. The basic formula involves multiplying the number of pods by the number of seeds per pod, then dividing that result by the seed size factor. That calculation will show the estimated bushels per acre. To calculate, producers first need to count the number of pods in one ten-thousandth of an acre, an area determined by a 21-inch length of a row of plants and how far apart the rows were planted. “Nearly 90 percent of our Indiana soybean acres are planted in 30-, 15- or 7.5-inch rows, so just remember that each count needs to be 21 inches long,” Casteel said. “You will count the number of pods in one row for 30inch width, two rows for 15-inch and four rows for 7.5-inch.” Producers should count the number of pods that are at stage R5 or higher — when they can see seeds. Next, they must determine the number of seeds per pod. Casteel said using the average of 2.5 seeds per pod is best because there can be a range of one to four seeds per pod. “This value is conser-

vative since we don’t know exactly how the rest of the season will finish,” Casteel said. Changing this one value can increase or decrease yield estimates. The third step is to calculate seed size factor. Casteel said the starting point is seed size factor 18, equaling about 3,000 seeds per pound. “If you expect larger seeds from late-season rains, you would divide by a lower seed size factor such as 15, which equals about 2,500 seeds per pound,” he said. “If the field has late-season stress, such as a lack of water, you would divide by a higher seed size factor like 21, or 3,500 seeds per pound.” The three values — number of pods in stage R5 or higher, number of seeds per pod and seed size factor — go into Casteel’s equation. For example, 250 pods times 2.5 seeds per pod divided by a seed size factor 15 equals 41.7 bushels per acre. Fair soybean growth with limited pod retention but with good late-season moisture will result in a fair crop. Although producers can start estimating yields as soybeans enter the R5 stage, the estimates will be more accurate as soybeans develop and enter R6, or full seed. If soybeans are just coming into R6, Casteel said the yield potential still depends on pod retention and seed size. The weather is an important contributor to yield potential, and dry conditions over the past four to five weeks have lowered yield potential in some fields. “Reductions in excessive heat and the return of rain helped yield potentials more in seed size than pod retention assuming the soybeans are into R6 and beginning to drop leaves,” Casteel said. “If fields are green, soybean yield potentials could improve. If fields are losing foliage, yield gains will be very limited.” This article was submitted by the Purdue University Agricultural Communications Department. ❖

Corn condition improved slightly to 9 percent very poor, 18 percent poor, 36 percent fair, 32 percent good and 5 percent excellent. Sixty-nine percent of soybeans had turned color, 20 percentage points behind normal. Twenty-two percent of the crop had dropped leaves, 10 days behind normal pace. There were scattered reports of the earliest planted soybeans being harvested. Soybean condition also improved slightly to 10 percent very poor, 19 percent poor, 37 percent fair, 30 percent good and 4 percent excellent.

Pasture condition improved and was rated 32 percent very poor, 30 percent poor, 27 percent fair, 10 percent good and 1 percent excellent. The condition of Minnesota’s crops improved during the week ending Sept. 22. Statewide, an average of 0.43 inch of rain fell; improving topsoil and subsoil moisture to 51 and 43 percent adequate, respectively. Central Minnesota received 0.96 inch of rainfall making it the wettest region for the second consecutive week. Temperatures averaged 57.2 degrees, 0.3 degrees cooler than normal. Statewide, 5.2 days were rated suitable for fieldwork. Ninety-one percent of the corn crop was at or beyond the dent stage, remaining behind the normal 94 percent. Seventeen percent of Minnesota’s corn was mature, 12 days behind normal. Seventy-six percent of corn silage has been cut, two percentage points ahead of normal, yet behind last year’s 99 percent.

Seventy-nine percent of the soybean crop was turning yellow, 20 percentage points behind last year. Forty-six percent of soybeans were dropping leaves, six days behind normal. Soybean conditions improved slightly to 50 percent good or excellent. Dry beans were 28 percent harvested, compared to last year’s 85 percent. The sugar beet harvest has begun, with 5 percent of the crop lifted. Minnesota’s potatoes were 58 percent dug, while sweet corn was 89 percent harvested. Pasture conditions also improved and were rated 27 percent good to excellent, compared to 17 percent a year ago. The harvest of third-cutting alfalfa was 93 percent complete. ❖

‘We like their peppers’ Alforex Seeds announced as Dow AgroSciences’ alfalfa business Dow AgroSciences LLC announced a new name for its growing alfalfa business, Alforex Seeds. Previously, on Oct. 12, 2012, the company announced it was expanding its investment in the alfalfa industry by acquiring the assets of Cal West Seeds based in Woodland, Calif. The new Alforex Seeds will include all of Dow AgroSciences’ alfalfa research and development and seed production operations, as well as the global licensing and private-label alfalfa businesses previously managed by Cal West and Dairyland Seed. “The new name denotes the company’s priority on being the alfalfa and forage experts that producers and agribusiness can rely on,” said Paul Frey, Alforex Seeds general manager. “This is a great development for hay, livestock and milk producers. The combined business backed by Dow AgroSciences will allow the development of new products and technologies that will

help the forage producers.” Going forward, Dairyland Seed will continue to market and sell Dairylandbranded alfalfa seed through its dealer network. Also, Producer’s Choice will continue to sell alfalfa and forage products for Alforex Seeds. Dow AgroSciences acquired Cal West Seeds, a leading supplier of alfalfa, clover and other crops to seed companies and growers in the United States, Canada and 25 other countries around the world. The addition of Cal West Seeds expanded Dow AgroSciences’ alfalfa business and strengthened its global forage business. “Dairyland Seed has a long history in the alfalfa business, and combining our R&D and seed production efforts under Dow AgroSciences into Alforex Seeds will enhance Dairyland’s ability to continue to provide innovative alfalfa genetics and technology to growers,” said Tom Strachota, Dairyland Seed general manager of West Bend, Wis. ❖

By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent There is a wealth that is not measured by money. Audrey Arner and Richard Handeen are enjoying that wealth on their 240-acre Moonstone Farm in Chippewa County, Minn. The year after Arner and Handeen were married, 1973, they moved to the farm that had been in Handeen’s family since 1872. In the past 40 years they have moved away from cropping and have slowly transitioned the farm to all perennials. “Richard’s father, like so many people of his generation, abandoned diversity for the sake of specializing and using the tools of the modern era,” Arner said. Federal farm programs encouraged and supported that change. “We have respect for what that generation did,” Arner went on, “but when it became our responsibility to take the next step, we wanted to farm in a way that was congruent with how we felt about food.” Today they describe that in the terms of the Slow Food movement: food that is good, clean (as uncontaminated as possible, not relying on pesticides or contributing to pollution), and fair (giving growers just compensation for their labor). This was not a sudden turnabout when they took over the farm. The changes came slowly, informed by previous generations but gradually modi-

fied to fit their vision. “First we went from broadcasting herbicides to banding them, then to ridge-tilling, then we started to do organic cropping,” Arner said. “We came to plant our first perennials on cropland when there was an alfalfa coop (Minnesota Valley Alfalfa Producers) that was going to be producing power, pelletizing alfalfa. It gave us a confidence to be planting perennials.” That confidence grew in the early 1990s when Arner was working for Land Stewardship Project and organizing for the Sustainable Farming Association. The couple joined a grazers circle of folks already involved in grass-based agriculture or wanting to do so. The group developed a feed mixture of 13 different grasses and legumes. With that support Arner and Handeen took the last big step — they took the rest of the land out of corn and soybeans and planted it to perennials. Today their grass-fed beef is the primary enterprise that supports their farm. With the price of corn and soybeans these days, one may question the wisdom of their decisions, but none of these moves came without deliberation. Handeen shared the philosophy by which their farm was guided. “Farmers need to make a living out here on the land,” he said. “That living relies on the health of our ecosystem. How do we take that long-enough view See MOONSTONE, pg. 15A

planting a variety of fruit and nut trees, and on the bush level planting currants, gooseberries, josta berries, seaberries, raspberries and more. To see all of this firsthand, guests can rent the Broodio for an on-farm stay. The Broodio began life as a brooder house, became an art studio, and is now furnished as a one-room cottage. It is rented out most weekends, even a couple times a month in the winter. During the winter, Arner consults with groups on organizational development — visioning, strategic planning, conflict resolution — drawing on her 17 years of experience organizing and leading activities for the LSP. Arner and Handeen continue to pass their vision on to a new generation. Their daughter and son-in-law operate a Community Supported Agriculture farm nearby. And they have had more than 20 interns work on their farm, all of whom have been screened for their interest in farming as opposed to simply wanting a rural experience.

Perennial polyculture requires more human labor, but it is a labor of love. And the couple makes sure there is balance so life is not all work. They have created a beach on their retention pond where family and friends spend Sunday afternoons. Both are members of performing music groups, and Handeen makes pottery. All of this variety sounds like a good life, but it’s not a way to get rich, is it? That depends on your definition. “We are rich,” Arner said. “It’s a different kind of wealth. If your goal in life is just to make money, then there’s a kind of agriculture (for doing so) that excludes a lot of people. But if the goal of living on the earth includes a quality of life that has balance in it, and pleasure, (there’s a kind of agriculture) that works with nature and enhances diversity.” Speaking of diversity, close to 90 species of birds have been identified on their farm. This approach is working for Arner and Handeen. Honoring those who

have gone before and working with extended family, they have drawn up long-range goals for Moonstone Farm. Those goals read in part: “We will cultivate a sense of self-worth among all, to contribute to the betterment of our neighborhood and community, and to be agents of change in fostering a sustainable civilization. We will live within our means and be able to pass on to future generations the gifts of Creation that have been passed on to us.” Long-range encompasses looking to the past as well as the future. Arner and Handeen recognize that their responsibility for this piece of the landscape is just “a blink of the eye” in its long history. They promote that outlook whenever the opportunity arises. “The key,” Handeen said, “will be that we as a society recognize that we have to incentivize those choices that take the longer view of the planet.” For more information, log on to www.moonstonefarm.net. ❖

MOONSTONE, from pg. 14A to recognize how what we do, the way we do it, affects that basic ecosystem? So we try to take as long a view as we can.” There is a small creek that runs through their property, and they are able to see the improvement in water quality that has come from their management practices by comparing the color of run-off from their fields with that from tiled row crop fields. Both economic pressures and environmental pressures need to be considered. “Row crop farming right now is a very profitable enterprise, and it is also an easy one to abuse,” Handeen said. “We human beings have to recognize at some point that we are going to have to take steps that aren’t just driven by immediate economics.” That long-range view undergirds their approach to agriculture. They direct market their beef cattle to individuals and Minneapolis-St. Paul restaurants, and retail some from Bill’s Grocery in Montevideo, Minn., and their on-farm store, which also stocks meat, cheese and flour from area growers. Grass and alfalfa are not the only perennials on the farm. They have a vineyard and trees and bushes. “We still have about 25 acres in tree strips that are in the Conservation Reserve Program,” Arner said, “plus 15 acres that are no longer in CRP. We have over 7,000 trees, 42 different species, planted in what were corn and soybean fields, creating windbreaks and wildlife habitat but also that will have eventual potential for production of timber, fruit, nuts, ornamentals and medicinals.” About five years ago a storm blew down 200 older trees, opening up the canopy in their grove.

Cover story: Coming home to share God’s bounty By KEVIN SCHULZ The Land Editor A search for faith has lead to a successful marriage. Liz Rabbe, a senior at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, was looking for a place to worship while off at school when she was a freshman a few years back. That search landed her at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on Snelling Avenue in St. Paul. “I’d grab my friends and we’d pile in and go to church,” Rabbe said. About that same time, her home church of Waverly Lutheran Church near Trimont in Martin County, Minn., was looking for a way to increase its outreach. And in Rabbe, they had found their conduit. The culmination of that outreach came to fruition on Sept. 15 when two

buses of urbanites rolled up to the front door of Waverly Lutheran Church, just in time for church. The trip to the Waverly church is two-fold of sharing: Sharing God’s bounty with fellow man, and sharing agriculture’s story. Rabbe, an ag education major at the U of M, had intentions of being a Sunday school teacher at Gloria Dei, but that was pared back to coming into the Sunday school classes of second graders four times throughout the year. In those lessons she ties in agricultural lessons into the New Testament agricultural parables. “I try to get across to them (Gloria Dei second graders) that we need to make the most of the gifts God gives us,” Rabbe said. “The same as they make the most of the gifts God gives

them, the farmers in the Waverly church also make the most of the resources that God gives them.” Once the second graders become third graders, they and their families are invited to attend a service at Waverly Lutheran for a “Harvest Homecoming.” The day is for the youth. Kirsten Rabbe, Liz’s mother, said the service has been adapted so the children will get more out of the liturgy. The Waverly Players acted out the first reading, Exodus 16, with elder statesmen of the Waverly congregation playing the parts of Moses, Aaron, a representative of the Israelites and God. Waverly and Gloria Dei children played the parts of the Israelites. The service was followed by a sharing of God’s bounty with pork chop on a stick (of course, you’re in Martin County), hot dogs, sweet corn and many side dishes for which to be

thankful. An afternoon of activities, for the young and old alike filled the grounds of the Waverly church. Local parishioners brought their animals for a petting zoo, including horse rides. Farmers also brought examples of their farm equipment, young and old, for the Gloria Dei visitors to climb on and be in awe of. But mainly the afternoon was about bonding and sharing, and realizing how everyone is really the same, regardless where they may call home. “This is great coming out here,” said Gloria Dei member Brielle Stoyke. “I was wondering why it would take so long to get out here when I heard we were coming to Waverly” thinking they were being bused to Waverly, Minn., which is just west of the Twin Cities. “This is a great way for us to tell farmers’ story,” said Jon Helvig, a Martin County farmer. ❖

Bee keeping a frustrating yet rewarding endeavor By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Bee keeper Warren Schave always has an audience when talking bees at the Minnesota State Fair. He speaks of himself as being a hobby apiarist — the technical term for bee keeper — but he’s been doing bees and making honey for 20 years. He lives at Wyoming, Minn., about 25 miles north of St. Paul off Interstate 35. He has 18 hives in four locations around Forest Lake, Lindstrom, Shafer and Wyoming — all nearby locations, and all environments with the important combination of woods, fields and flowering plants, both field and wild. Working at the Bee and Honey Exhibit in the Horticulture Building Schave said, “if your hives are located in basically a monoculture environment with mostly cultivated crops like corn and soybeans you don’t get the variety of flowers that the bees gather the nectar from.” Honey bees prefer a mixture of clovers, wild flowers, alfalfa and some basswood trees. “Basswood is an excellent honey source. The basswood trees flower for just a short period of time, typically late-June and early July. It’s Minnesota’s lightest honey. It’s just very good honey,” Schave said, indicating

They have scouts out searching for the favorite source of nectar. When they come back to the hive they do what we call the ‘waggle dance’ which tells the rest of the working bees that this is a good nectar. Then it’s sort of a ‘follow me’ flight back ...

it’s also his favorite honey. The color of honey is determined by the nectar that the bees bring into the colony from a variety of flowering plants. “A bee typically will travel 2 1/2 to 3 miles in any direction. They have scouts

out searching for the favorite source of nectar. When they come back to the hive they do what we call the ‘waggle dance’ which tells the rest of the working bees that this is a good nectar. Then it’s sort of a ‘follow me’ flight back to this particular nectar source,” he said. Production figures Since we’re not talking bushels per acre in the honey business how do bee keepers measure the production of their hives? For Schave if he gets only 30 to 60 pounds of honey per hive he would call that a poor year. “But if I get 75 to 80 pounds, I call that a pretty good year and anything over 100 pounds per hive is an excellent year.” He leaves about 100 pounds of honey in the hive if he is wintering his bees. As you might expect, production varies from hive to hive and from year to year. According to Schave, a few strong hives offset the lesser production from the poorer hives but his average over the years has been 75 pounds to 100 pounds of honey per hive. “A strong hive this time of year will have anywhere from 50,000 to 65,000 bees. And one queen bee is the boss and runs the entire show,” he said. Despite all this royalty, queen bees are rather short lived. “Typically bee keepers will winter a queen over just one year so she’ll be an egg layer for two years in the hive. She could live for several years but her egg laying capacity declines rapidly after that second year. The name of the game is having maximum number of bees in that hive when the nectar flow hits,” he said. A good queen will lay up to 2,000 eggs per day. That demands a lot of energy. She gets fed royal jelly by the

workers (her daughters) who also consume a lot of honey in their work. As Schave explained, there’s also quite a few drones hanging out in each hive with nothing much to do except “service” the queen mother. Death loss continues Honey bee colonies are dying at unprecedented rates. Every year an average of 30 percent of all honey bee colonies in the United States die. These losses occur by both commercial and backyard beekeepers in every state. This ongoing loss threatens the production of fruits and vegetables across the United States, plus the production of honey, an amazing natural sweetener. Minnesota, one of the top honey-producing states in the nation, has seen its honey production diminish every year for the past 20 years. Why the huge decline in bee numbers across the nation? Schave said most people think it’s that family of insecticides (neonicotinoid insecticides) primarily used in urban settings. But lack of habitat is perhaps a growing concern also, since most highway ditches are now being mowed, Conservation Reserve Program land is being plowed back into row-crop agriculture, and there’s just a general reduction in forage crops across the nation — these are the life-line of a healthy bee population. Parasitic mites are also now a major problem, especially since they are becoming resistant to certain medications. Plus bees have a few diseases that infect and kill. These several factors have pushed all bees to the tipping point, but you can help: • Plant bee flowers everywhere • Reduce or eliminate pesticide use • Provide nesting sites for wild bees • Support the University of Minnesota Bee Lab in their efforts to keep bees healthy. Is bee keeping for you? The fall issue of a newsletter for members of the Minnesota Honey Producers Association simply says that See BEES, pg. 23A

BEES, from pg. 22A bee keeping is not as hard as you might think. Bees are easier to care for than dogs (perhaps even cats). Honey bees are actually pretty good at taking care of themselves. They don’t need much space or time. They basically gather their own food and water. And you don’t need to ask someone to take care of your bees when you go on vacation. If you are interested, a good way to start is by signing up for the annual classes held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in November and February. Log on to www.beelab.umn.edu for information. Schave does make money on his bees, but “I don’t have to depend on my honey income.” Commercial producers losing 50 percent or more of their colonies two years in a row are likely out of business, said Schave. “Like farming, it’s a challenge every year,” he said. “It’s very weather-dependent and now with these other issues, bee keeping is both frustrating but

Free app offers accessible way to identify plant problems << www.TheLandOnline.com >> “Where Farm and Family Meet”

Farmers, homeowners, greenhouse and nursery growers, agricultural specialists and others who need to identify plants, plant diseases, insect pests and other plant problems have a new mobile application resource created by eight university labs, including Purdue’s Plant and Pest Diagnostic Laboratory. The Plant Diagnostic Sample Submission app includes submission forms with customized questions about agronomic crops, weeds, vegetables, houseplants and more. It was developed by IN3 — www.in3applications.com — located in the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette, Ind. The app allows users to take and send digital photos and plant-problem descriptions to any of the eight participating labs. The university diagnostic labs involved are Alabama Cooperative Extension, University of Connecticut, University of Illinois Extension, University of Kentucky, Michigan State University, University of New Hampshire and Ohio State University. When submitting samples, users answer questions about the specific types of plant problems they need to identify, such as farm, household or lawn. Submissions are sent to the labs using the iPhone or iPad built-in mail app, which requires an e-mail account on the device. PPDL will charge normal sample-handling fees for samples submitted through the app. Those fees are $11 for Indiana samples and $22 for out-of-state submissions. However, if a physical sample is needed as a follow-up, there is no additional fee. Each of the other diagnostic labs has specific fee policies, so users should check with their preferred lab for details. The PPDL accepts submissions from the 48 contiguous states. International submissions are not accepted. Right now Kentucky and New Hampshire laboratories will only accept samples via the app from Extension educators and specialists who have a proper passcode. The app is available for free download in the iTunes store. For more information, log on to www.ppdl.purdue.edu/PPDL/hot13/8-12.html. ❖

Protect pollinators while trying to protect your crops Honey bees and native bees forage in and near soybean and cornfields, especially during dry weather. When treatment decisions are being made for pests of these crops, it is important to consider minimizing the risk to these pollinators. Bees are the most important pollinators of our fruits, vegetables and crops including alfalfa hay that feed our farm animals. Honey bees and thousands of native bee species rely on the flowers they pollinate for good nutrition and health. Bees are being pushed to the tipping point by various factors, such as disruption of natural habitats, diseases and parasites, and widespread overuse of pesticides. Producer knowledge of basic bee biology can help protect bees from pesticides. Bees forage throughout the growing season from sun up to sun down when temperatures are above 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Honey bees fly an average of two miles on each foraging trip, searching for flowers over an 8,000-acre area surrounding the hive or apiary. Native bees generally fly within half mile of their nest. If flowers are blooming, bees will forage on them. Beekeepers cannot close up the hive during a pesticide application because the bees will suffocate. Moving the bees is not a viable option because bees

return to their original site unless they are moved out of their foraging range, which is more than three miles away. Locations to place bee hives are difficult to come by, and it is even harder to find locations where the bees are out of range of pesticide application. In a July 3, article in the North Dakota State University Crop and Pest Report, Janet Knodel provided several general recommendations for reducing pesticide risks to pollinators. • Know and communicate with beekeepers about pesticide application schedules and products. • Use economic thresholds and other Integrated Pest Management strategies. Economic thresholds ensure that pesticides are used only when crop losses prevented by pesticide use are greater than the cost of the pesticide and the application. • Use pesticides with low toxicity

and low residual to bees. For example, avoid using dusts or wettable powder insecticide formulations because they generally are more toxic to bees. • Evening or early morning applications are the least harmful to bees because fewer bees are foraging. • Never apply pesticides outdoors on a windy day (winds higher than 10 mph) which could cause spray drift problems. Honey bees and native bees visit the flowers of soybean and many flowering weeds growing in and near soybean fields. As soybean aphid populations continue building throughout the state, aphid management should take these pollinators into consideration. The University of Minnesota recommends making treatment decisions based on scouting program (i.e., getting into the field and counting aphids) and the following economic threshold for R1 (beginning bloom) to R5.5 (seeds expanding in pods) soybean: treat if populations are increasing, the majority (at least 80 percent) of plants are infested and average aphid counts exceed 250 aphids per plant. This threshold can protect yields, reduce costs, conserve natural enemies of aphids and other pests, and reduce the risk of pests developing resistance to pesticides. Treating soybean aphid populations when they exceed this threshold will minimize unnecessary pesticide

applications and reduce pollinator exposure to pesticides. Honey bees and native bees can be found foraging in cornfields, especially when pollen is available during tasseling and silking. Pesticide applications made during these growth stages may put pollinators at risk. The emerging problem of corn rootworm resistance to Bt traits may result in increased pesticide applications during these crop growth stages when the adult rootworm beetles are active. Furthermore, these growth stages are critical for protection of sweet corn against certain caterpillar pests. Consider pollinators when making management decisions for certain corn pests. When using pesticides, always read and follow the label directions. Labels for some products/formulations with high toxicity to bees will provide specific directions for minimizing risk to pollinators. The label is the law. Keeping these recommendations in mind will help you to protect honey bees and other pollinators while you use pesticides to protect your crops.

Grain Angles

The following market analysis is for the week ending Sept. 20. CORN — A mostly quiet week in the corn market as we ease into harvest. A sharp spike higher on Tuesday was a result of the Farm Service Agency acreage certification data release, but it was unable to hold. The FSA release showed certified corn plantings at 91.4 million acres; prevent-plant at 3.573 million acres. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is using 97.4 million acres. These two agencies’ numbers usually do not show a good correlation to each other. In recent years, the FSA figure has been 3 million to 4 million PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. acres below the USDA. The trade St. Paul has been dialing in a 1.5 million to 2.25 million acre reduction from the USDA estimate. Unwinding of corn-bean spreads was cited as a factor in late-week strength, but December still closed lower for the week. Corn yields are nearly universally better than expected as harvest expands beyond the 4 percent complete reported as of Sept. 15. Weekly export sales at 17.2 million bushels were neutral to low versus expectations. This brings total commitments to 31 percent ahead of last year. The USDA, however, is forecasting exports to grow by 67 percent this year. Weekly ethanol production fell 10,000 barrels per day to 838,000 barrels per day. Ethanol stocks dropped from 683 million gallons to 680 million gallons. It doesn’t pay to import Brazilian ethanol into the United States as Brazilian prices have risen and U.S. corn prices have declined. Imports were a mere 1 million gallons versus 4 million in the previous week.

The livestock markets have either been erratic or mundane as of late depending on whether it be the hog market or the cattle market. The hog market is the culprit of being erratic of late as prices have been either up or down sharply over the past few weeks. The cattle market has continued in a quiet and narrow price range in that same two-week period. On Sept. 20, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report which indicated the following: onfeed Sept. 1, 93 percent; placed during August, 89 percent; marketed during August, 96 percent. This report was seen as positive for JOE TEALE cattle prices as placements were Broker much lower than analysts had Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. expected as well as the marketing number greater than anticipated. This could help the cattle market break out of the trading range that has persisted over the past several months. Of course this information is just one side of the fundamental equation. The supply side is the other side of the equation and the demand side continues to languish. Beef cutouts have rallied over the past month and the domestic boxed beef movement continues to be relatively slowed in comparison to previous years. Export business has been sporadic and overall better than last year. Combined the demand for beef at higher levels would have to be questionable given the current economic conditions now and in the foreseeable future. Therefore if beef prices advance much more from current levels, look for more pressure on the volume of beef products in the months ahead. Producers should not become overly optimistic to the point of not protecting inventories when available.

See TEALE, pg. 26A

If the uncertainty of the weather and the volatile markets had you waiting to sell your corn this year, you are not alone. The delay in forward selling by most farmers will lead to unusually heavy selling pressure as harvest progresses. Even with the recent slight decrease in corn yields by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this year’s corn crop is large and farmers will need to move large amounts of their grain at harvest. For 2013, the third week in September clearly illustrates the harvest pressure the corn market is just starting to feel. The USDA has updated the prevent-plant acres to 3.57 million acres GLENN WACHTLER of corn and 1.69 million acres of soyAgStar Assistant VP beans. Many of these acres are Financial Services Baldwin, Wis. located in the prime growing areas of our country. To a large degree, the corn market has shrugged off news that this could cause an increase in prices. On Sept. 18, the Federal Reserve tried to breathe some life into the asset markets by extending their $85 billion per month bond buying program. The grain markets rallied briefly, but failed to see much follow-through on Sept. 19. By now, the markets have also had time to absorb the impact of limited rainfall over late summer and corn yields have been higher than expected in the South. The bottom-line in the corn market is that it has been tough for prices to gain any momentum and break the downward-trend in prices. Until now, most producers have had a floor with respect to the minimum revenue per acre provided by their crop insurance revenue plan. For the Upper Midwest, that protection expires at the end of the See WACHTLER, pg. 26A

Early soybeans yields come in all across the board NYSTROM, from pg. 25A We continue to wait to hear from the Environmental Protection Agency concerning the 2014 Renewable Fuels Standard mandate. It’s expected the ethanol mandate will be left unchanged from this year at 13.8 billion gallons. The original mandate for 2014 would have put it at 14.4 billion gallons. Informa Economics updated their production, acreage and yield forecasts late in the week. Their new adjusted corn acreage number is 95.835 million acres, down 1.6 million from the USDA’s forecast and down 413,000 acres from Informa’s last estimate. This puts their production projection at 13.889 billion bushels using 157.6 bushels per acre compared to the USDA’s 13.843 billion bushels and 155.3 bu./acre. Informa has Minnesota’s corn yield pegged at 168 bu./acre. They also are using 92.684 million acres and 13.848 billion bushel production as starting points for the 2014 crop year. In other developments, the Federal Reserve announced mid-week after their two-day meeting, they would leave their bond buying program in place for the time being at $85 billion per month. The trade had anticipated

a cut of $10 billion per month. The announcement plunged the U.S. dollar index lower and rallied commodities. The sharp rally in energy was overdone and by the end of the week the increase had been given back. OUTLOOK: While there’s no reason yet to move the first support level from $4.45 3/4, early yield returns suggest $4.25 during harvest is likely, but not until we get into harvest. Resistance is the 50-day moving average at $4.75 1/4 per bushel. Corn and bean markets must overcome surplus storage that begs to be filled and growers’ reluctance to sell anything except what they can’t store versus the needs of an empty pipeline. The market says sell beans and store corn, which we’ll expect to occur. December corn dropped 8 cents to $4.51 per bushel this week on the approaching harvest and as funds added to their short positions. Sept. 30 brings us the Grain Stocks as of Sept. 1 report. SOYBEANS — Soybeans stumbled lower this week to fill the gap left from Aug. 26 at $13.31 1/2 as funds took profits on long positions and traders unwound bean-corn spreads. Bean harvest has been reported from most corners of the Midwest, but total

Study the local area basis levels WACHTLER, from pg. 25A fall revenue pricing period in October. Your crop insurance does not protect you if crop prices continue to drop after the fall pricing period is over. Many producers were able to insure close to break-even profit levels on their corn acreage. Given the trend of the 2013 corn market, don’t let your profitability disappear or risk earning less than your insurance revenue per acre after your guaranteed revenue protection is up in October. This time of year has typically been a good time of year to “Capture the Carry” in the corn market and may allow your storage to pay for itself. The spread between the December 2013 and July 2014 futures prices on corn is currently around 26 cents and tends to get more attractive during harvest. This spread is the futures market “incentive” for farmers to store your corn, especially in years with a lot of harvest selling pressure. The reward for storing corn may be even greater in those areas that tend to have a strong spring basis.

acres harvested have been limited. Yields are leaning lower than expected, but reports range from 9 bu./acre in drought areas of Iowa to 60+ bu./acre in southern Illinois-Indiana. It’s estimated about 20 percent to 25 percent of the bean acres could still benefit from additional moisture. FSA data released this week didn’t faze the soybean market. Certified planted acreage was 74.659 million acres, prevent planted at 1.687 million acres. The USDA is using 77.2 million planted acres. The billion-dollar question however remains, “what will the final soybean yield be?” China this week signed a non-binding letter of intent to buy 4.83 million metric tons of U.S. beans in the coming year. They have signed similar agreements in the past. Subsequently this week, they bought 1.93 mmt of U.S. beans as part of this agreement. In other action, a total of 302,000 mt of beans were sold to unknown during the week. Weekly export sales were impressive at 34 million bushels, keeping total commitments at 7 percent ahead of last year. The USDA is projecting this year’s sales to increase by 4 percent over last year. Based on the amount of bean sales on the books, the United States is expected to see record bean loadings in the September-to-February time frame. This elevates the need to keep beans in the pipeline. Basis levels this week crept lower as end-users bridge the gap waiting for new crop supplies to become available. Lower water on the Illinois River pushed barge freight higher and contributed to lower basis levels on the river system. Brazil’s soybean planting season began this week with 1 percent planted reported. Conditions are on

MARKETING

Producers who have not locked-in the basis on their fall corn contracts may also have an attractive option to move some of those contracts to the spring months. As the corn yields on your farm become more of a certainty, think about reducing your risk if you haven’t made any sales yet. Start by forward selling some of the corn you plan on storing for next spring and summer.This will help pay for grain storage costs by capturing the carry in the market. Study the basis in your local area. Leaving the basis open on your contracts may be an acceptable risk if you believe there will be more demand in your area for corn a few months from now. As the harvest pressure increases and the revenue blanket of crop insurance expires; the uncertainty of this year’s crop will become reality. It’s important to take some risk off of the table if you haven’t done some crop marketing. AgStar Financial Services is a cooperative owned by client stockholders.

the dry side and some producers are waiting for rain to begin planting. The National Oilseed Processors Association August crush report was neutral at 110.5 million bushels. This was the smallest monthly crush since September 2011 and the lowest crush for August since 2004. Late in the week, Informa Economics released fresh figures. For 2013, they project bean acreage at 76.787 million acres, up 400,000 from their last number and 391,000 acres lower than the USDA. Production is expected to be 3.224 billion bushels versus the USDA’s 3.149 billion. They used 42.4 bu./acre for a yield (Minnesota at 40 bu./acre) compared to the USDA’s 41.2 bu./acre. Their beginning acreage number for 2014 is 83.6 million acres with a crop of 3.671 billion bushels. OUTLOOK: A gap left this week from $13.80 to $13.75 1/4 will be considered first resistance, with support at an underlying gap from $12.72 to $12.72 1/2 per bushel. With harvest accelerating next week, look for a choppy, lower market. However, losses should be limited by an expected lack of farmer selling and an extremely thin pipeline that needs to be replenished. November soybeans tumbled 66 1/4 cents for the week to settle at $13.15 1/4 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending Sept. 20: Minneapolis wheat was 6 cents lower while Chicago gained 4 3/4 cents and Kansas City was up 3/4 cents. November crude oil declined $2.79 to $104.75. October ultra-low-sulfur diesel dropped 11 cents for the week, gasoline fell 8 1/2 cents and natural gas was up a penny.

Pork futures under pressure TEALE, from pg. 25A The hog market has been the recipient of fewer numbers of available marketready animals. This rallied prices back to nearing the $100 per hundredweight level basis cash in the Midwest. The futures market on the other hand has been under pressure which prices falling from liquidation of commodity funds and speculative interests. This selling in futures has also come from the idea that hogs seasonally top around this time of the year. This has widened the basis once again

between futures and the cash market allowing a positive basis for producers who are hedged. Pork product movement has been fairly good reflecting good demand for pork. This might reflect a consumer switch to the better value in pork versus beef. Until we see numbers of market-ready hogs increase, hog prices are likely to remain firm as long as the demand for pork remains as firm as it is at the present time. Producers are encouraged to monitor market conditions and protect inventories as needed. ❖

August milk production up a surprising 2.7 percent

THE LAND, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013

This column was written for the marketing week ending Sept. 20. August milk production in the 23 major dairy states totaled a surprisingly strong 15.7 billion pounds, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s preliminary data, up 2.7 percent from August 2012. That’s the fifth month in a row that output exceeded that of year ago, and the biggest increase this year. The 50-state total, at 16.835 billion

pounds, was up 2.6 percent from a year ago. Revisions added 29 million pounds to the original July estimate, now put at 15.7 billion pounds, up 1.3 percent from July 2012. Checking the top players, California was up 2.7 percent, the first month since June 2012 that production exceeded that of a year ago. Wisconsin was up 1.7 percent. Idaho was down 0.7 percent, New York was up 4.2 percent, Pennsylvania up 3.5 percent and Minnesota was up 1.9 percent.

Tight butter in Europe, Oceania brings buyers to U.S. The Outlook’s milk price projections were far more bullish than Wednesday’s CME futures prices. Jerry Dryer said in Friday’s DairyLine that the projections sounded high to him as well as to other economists he talks with. One example, the USDA forecasts the First Quarter 2014 Class III price to average $17.40/cwt. Dryer projects $16.50, a 90-cent difference, and points out that Class III futures were in the $16.50 range. Economists he polled predict $16.35. Dryer said it’s unusual for the USDA to have a forecast that’s much more bullish than other indicators suggest but, “they seem to be hanging their hat on strong exports next year.” Dryer admits he can’t argue with that but where their forecasts conflict is milk production. Dryer expects a huge increase in milk production next year versus what the USDA sees. “Lower

corn prices are going to trigger way more milk,” he said, “than what USDA is forecasting.” ■ The USDA announced the October federal order Class I base milk price this week at $19.20/cwt., up 4 cents from September, 32 cents above October 2012, the highest since December 2012, and equates to about $1.65 per gallon. The 2013 Class I average now stands at $18.55, up from $16.74 at this time a year ago and compares to $19.26 in 2011, $15 in 2010, and $11.09 in 2009.

Most notable is demand from overseas, Dryer said. “Cheese orders are flooding into our office,” said one large manufacturer. “Orders are coming from all corners of the world,” adding with a surprised tone in his voice, “we’re getting orders from Europe.” ■ Butter supplies remain tight in Europe and Oceania, Dryer said, and this is now bringing buyers to the United States. Another trader told Dryer that “everyone was waiting for lower (dairy product) prices; prices pushed lower by the beginning of the new production season in the Southern Hemisphere. But the season isn’t here yet and their cupboards are bare.” Cash butter closed Friday at $1.60/lb., up 7 cents on the week but 29 cents below a year ago. A whopping 67 cars were sold on the week as interest grows for the upcoming holidays. FC Stone brokers tell me the highest single week sales of butter totaled 147 loads the week of Nov. 21, 2003, when butter was only trading three time a week. AMS butter averaged $1.40, up 2.5 cents. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed at $1.8450, up 1.5 cents on the week, while Extra Grade held at $1.78. AMS powder averaged $1.8048, up a penny, and dry whey averaged 57.94 cents, up 0.1 cent. “There’s strong demand for powder in the United States,” according to FC Stone’s Ron O’Brien. “Cheese makers are bidding for the product as strong demand for fluid and condensed milk lap up any surplus.” ■ The 2013-14 price forecast for corn was lowered from the August projection to $4.40 to $5.20 per bushel in this week’s Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook. Yield forecasts were raised for September, and the higher production offset lower projected carry-in stocks. Forecast corn production is now a record 13.8 billion bushels. The 2013-14 forecast soybean meal price was increased in September for 2013-14 to $360 to $400 per ton due to a lower yield forecast. The August Agricultural Prices report places the preliminary August price for alfalfa hay at $200/ton, down slightly from last month and down fractionally from August 2012. On balance, feed prices are forecast to moderate next year and the milk-feed price ratio should climb in 2014, helping to boost milk production.

MIELKE, from pg. 28A ations remains to be seen. ■ Meanwhile, mid-September cheese prices reversed three weeks of gains and the latest milk production data didn’t help matters. The cash block price closed Sept. 20 at $1.7950 per pound, down 4.5 cents on the week and 20.5 cents below a year ago when blocks hit $2/lb. Barrel closed at $1.7675, also down 4.5 cents on the week and 19.25 cents below a year ago. No cheese was sold all week in the spot market. The Agricultural Marketing Service-surveyed U.S. average block price slipped 0.2 cent, to $1.7470. Barrel averaged $1.7916, up 3.4 cents. ■ Hot weather has continued to tighten the milk supply for cheese manufacturing, according to the USDA’s Dairy Market News. Increased seasonal ordering has begun and plants are looking for additional milk for cheese vats. High nonfat dry milk prices have more plants looking for condensed skim to fortify vats. ■ Export sales are good, assisted by the Cooperatives Working Together program which accepted 25 requests for export assistance this week to sell 2.28 million pounds of cheese and 3.12 million pounds of butter to customers in Asia, Central America, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. ■ The Global Dairy Trade auction took place Sept. 17. Product offerings from Fonterra have been declining as the cooperative’s regular orders take up surplus milk. FC Stone’s Sept. 17 eDairy Insider Closing Bell reported that prices showed slight improvement with the trade-weighted average for all products advancing 0.3 percent. Four of nine products posted gains led by butter up 5.2 percent to $1.774/lb., or $1.7307, adjusted for 80 percent fat; whole milk powder up 1.1 percent to $2.3115/lb.; and cheddar cheese up 1 percent, or $1.9482/lb. Compare those to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Dairy insiders are bearish because of large inventories, according to Jerry Dryer’s Sept. 13 Dairy and Food Market Analyst, “but they have a bullish conclusion: Cheese and butter prices will go higher, driven by strong demand.”

It’s hard not to be totally charmed by ‘A Very, Very Noisy Tractor.’ It’s cute, filled with positivity, and is curiously inspirational. curiously inspirational. It’s also a little odd: adult sensibilities might notice that Pavón and Uyá seem to end their book twice — but turn the page, and there’s plenty of story left. That’s not bad, from a kids’ point-of-view, but it’s something for parents to remember as their story-reading starts to wind down. Still, the good here vastly outweighs that relatively minor oddity: kids will love the humor and the appealing characters. Adults will enjoy the dream-affirming message inside, and the illustrations are absolutely irresistible. Translated from a Spanish version, I think this book is just right for 3-to-7-yearolds who love a good read-aloud. If that’s your little one, then “A Very, Very Noisy Tractor” is a book they’ll shout about. Look for the reviewed book at a bookstore or a library near you. You may also find the book at online book retailers. The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and never goes anywhere without a book. She lives in Wisconsin with three dogs and 10,000 books. ❖

Take pet burns seriously, but leave it to the vet Accidents happen, and pets can get burned for one reason or another just like their owners can. When this happens, it is best to have a hands-off policy and leave the treatments to the professionals. “The best thing an owner can do in the case of a burn is get the animal to a veterinarian as soon as possible; burns are considered to be emergencies in just about all situations, and the sooner they are

brought in, the better,” said Alison Diesel, lecturer specializing in dermatology, at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Sometimes pet owners will not notice the burned area for days or even weeks after the burn has occurred. One thing to keep in mind with burns is that sometimes what is seen initially is only the tip of the iceberg.

“What may look like only a red spot of skin on a pet’s side following a burn incident can quickly become devitalized, dead tissue, which is not only painful but also more at risk for infections over the next couple of days,” Diesel said. Infection in the animal is a big concern when dealing with burns, especially if the burn goes deeper into the lower layers of the skin. “If the skin barrier is not intact and normal, bacteria can quickly enter the wound causing not only local infection but also potentially it can get into the blood stream. This puts the animal at risk for serious illness and potentially death,” Diesel said. Diesel explained that serious burns require hospitalization and care for several days to weeks to monitor and control for any side effects of the burn. Cars are often one of the causes for accidents resulting in pet burns. There are many other scenarios as well that could be the cause of pet burns, such as barbecue grills, space heaters, spilling hot liquids or food when cooking, objects laying in the yard that conduct heat such as hoses or tools, or puppies or cats chewing on plugged in electrical cords.

Air dry or use cool setting to dry your pet after a bath often very painful,” Diesel said. Even what looks like only a mild burn can become much worse over time. This is particularly true for thermal burns, which may be caused by heat lamps, water blankets, or even hot water from a garden hose that was used for bathing. It is natural for an owner who witnesses a pet getting burned to want to try to help the animal and ease their pain, but again, the best thing to do is to get the animal to a veterinarian as soon as possible. “If it is not a chemical burn, removing some of the burning material can be helpful,” Diesel said. This is the extent to which an owner should try to

FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative announces its 2013 scholarship recipients, awarding a total of $28,000. The cooperative presented 24 scholarships to high school and collegiate students throughout the Midwest pursuing a post-secondary education. Minnesota and Iowa scholarship recipients are Jordan Hammerand, Sherrill, Iowa; Jennifer Huhe, Cresco, Iowa; Chelsey Johnson, Heron Lake, Minn.; Jacob Johnson, Heron Lake, Minn.; Cody Lubben, Edgerton, Minn.; Taylor Shoen, Truman, Minn.; Kyle Viland, Pipestone, Minn. “FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative is proud to award these 24 scholarships to the sons and daughters of FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative members. These young individuals are destined to be future leaders and we are pleased to assist in their continuing education,” said Dennis Donohue, general manager of FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative. Scholarship recipients were selected based on leadership, scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, essay responses, their future plans and career goals.

help a pet with a burn. Owners can sometimes unintentionally burn a pet when drying them off with a hairdryer after a bath. “If the owner wants to use a hair dryer, it should be done on a cool setting only,” Diesel said. Less harmful ways of drying off a pet would include thorough towel drying or allowing the animal to dry outside in the sun when the weather is not too warm. Sometimes more serious situations can occur such as house or barn fires. “Smoke inhalation can be a big problem for dogs and cats, especially if that animal already has any sort of respiratory condition such as asthma,” Diesel said. When it comes to pet burns, time becomes crucial. The best thing an owner can do for their pet is to get them to a veterinarian as soon as possible to be evaluated and monitored. This is the best way to ensure getting fluffy friends back to their playful and loving selves. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

BURNS, from pg. 34A “Different types of burns require different treatments,” Diesel said. “Chemical burns, for example, might become much worse when water is applied to them, so the nature of the burn helps the veterinarian know how best to treat it.” Sometimes owners do not witness the animal getting burned, so it is important to be able to try and distinguish if a mark that is found on a pet is actually a burn. “Severe burns may show up as large areas of exposed deeper skin; this would look like a scraped knee for example, which could be moist, oozing and

Tried swai? It’s great grilled “Swai?” you say. “What in the world is swai?” Swai is a fantastic white fish that comes from southeast Asia. It has a mild, slightly sweet flavor, which is absolutely delicious. It holds up well to grilling, assuming you don’t over handle it while cooking, and it pan sears well, too. It is now available in frozen form in many grocery stores and best of all, it is quite affordable. For today’s recipe, we sprinkled the fish with a commercial fish rub and prepared a delicious fire-roasted salsa to liberally pile on top. A delicious meal that’s fresh, healthy and affordable, and can be prepared over real charcoal or on the gas grill: What’s not to like? We grilled four swai filets for this recipe. Fire Roasted Salsa 2 to 3 tomatoes — depending on size 2 yellow onions 2 jalapeno peppers 2 ears of corn with husk 1/2 tsp cumin Juice of 1 lime Salt and pepper to taste 1 minced garlic clove Chopped cilantro or parsley (optional) Wrap the two ears of corn in a wet kitchen towel. Microwave on high for four minutes. Take out, let cool for a bit and peel off husk and silk. You will find that it comes off easily. Cut the tomatoes and onions into thick slices. Split the peppers and scoop out the rib and seeds. Be careful to not rub your eyes after handling the peppers. Wash hands thoroughly after seeds and ribs are scooped out.

Brush the corn, peppers, tomatoes and onions with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place directly over coals or flames on the grill. Stay with the vegetables making sure nothing burns, flipping regularly. After a light char is created (takes 5 minutes or so) pull off the grill and place on a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, cut the corn off the cob and cut remaining vegetables into small pieces. Be sure your knife is sharp, otherwise you will turn the tomatoes into a mush, soupy mess. Place all vegetables in a bowl (juice and all). Mix the cumin, garlic and lime juice together. Pour onto vegetables and toss gently. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the thawed filets with your favorite seasoning. Scrub the grill with a wire brush to remove all grilling residue from the vegetables. Apply olive oil to the grates with an old towel or paper towel to prevent sticking. Place fish directly over coals or flame. Allow to cook for 4 to 5 minutes with the lid open. Gently turn and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove the fish and place on platter. Place a piece of fish on a plate and pile some fire-roasted salsa on top. Obviously the salsa would go with almost any grilled fish, but I would encourage you to give swai a try. BBQMyWay is written by Dave Lobeck, a barbecue chef from Sellersburg, Ind.

It’s a Honey(crisp) of a year for apple harvest Harvest far better than last year’s ice, storm damaged crop By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press Even the names can make your mouth water: Sweet Tango, Honeycrisp, Sweet 16. With a near-perfect growing season behind them, area apple orchards are seeing a bountiful harvest. “Things are looking very good. We have a very large crop this year,” said Larry Harbo of Welsh Heritage Farm near Lake Crystal, Minn. At A-Peeling Acres Orchard at New Ulm, Minn., Dianne Rodenberg was busy helping harvest trees heavy with produce. “Right now it’s McIntosh, the Beacon and William’s Pride have come and gone. The Zestars are ready and we’re getting into the Honeycrisps,” she said. “The Sweet Sixteens and Haralsons should be ready in a week or two.” This season’s abundance is a turnaround from last year when a warm March, followed by a hard frost in

April, killed off apple blossoms. The tough start was followed by widespread hail storms that damaged apples and slashed the harvest. Minnesota is home to 150 apple growers who generate some 16 million pounds of fruit and generate $12.6 million. There was a slow start to the growing season, with cool wet weather putting the bloom off by two weeks, to late-May, but warm weather and good rainfall over the summer was perfect for the apple crop, Harbo said. A new favorite at Welsh Heritage is the Sweet Tango, a newer variety developed by the University of Minnesota. “The Sweet Tango, Honeycrisp and Zestar are the three stars of the U of M,” Harbo said. Rodenberg said the work done at the university over the years has given a big boost to apple growers. “The U of M does a fabulous job with their fruit development.”

John Cross

Larry Harbo checks on apples at the Welsh Heritage Farm orchard. The orchard is being replanted using a post and wire trellis system that makes caring for and picking the apples easier. Some of the most popular Minnesota apples, including Zestar and Honeycrisp, are being picked now. Her family’s orchard was started in 1985 and is owned by her mother-inlaw, Patricia Rodenberg, with Dianne’s husband, John, and son, David, managing the 700-tree orchard. “We’re a mom-and-pop operation. We pick ’em all, bag ’em all and sell them out of our apple barn,” she said. The Welsh Heritage orchards, with 1,500 trees, were started 33 years ago and the operation is in the midst of a

major replanting. “We’re in the process of replanting the orchard to new trellis systems,” Harbo said. “The apples are all on a trellis, they’re planted three feet apart and are eight-feet tall and three wires support them,” Harbo said.

pound that guests bring. The maze’s design features one of the donors’ biggest icons: the Jolly Green Giant. In addition, each guest who brings a non-perishable food item to the corn maze will receive $1 off the admission price of $6.75 for adults 12 and older and $5.50 for kids ages 5 to 11. Montgomery Orchard, 15953 State Highway 99, is one mile east of the intersections of highways 99 and 13. It’s open 1-6 p.m. Fridays and weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Nov. 3. It also offers apple picking. Of the 16 varieties of apples, 15 were created by the University of Minnesota, and Wardell said the crop is excellent this year. Wardell said he sometimes hears complaints that the corn maze is a waste of perfectly good food. Not so, he says; the crop of field corn is still harvested every fall.

Last year, all four of the Beatles’ faces appeared in the corn. This year, the Montgomery (Minn.) Orchard decided that its Be-A-Mazed Corn Maze would reflect a charitable theme, Scott said. He said they’ve been active with the hunger relief group Second Harvest Heartland, and they enjoy using their event to donate to the food shelf. So the Wardells persuaded two of the heavy hitters in foods in the region — Faribault Foods and General Mills — to each donate a pound of food for every

This year Montgomery Orchard decided its Be-A-Mazed Corn Maze would reflect a charitable theme. The owners persuaded Faribault Foods and General Mills to each donate a pound of food for every pound that guests bring. The Jolly Green Giant is a General Mills character.
