Label it, prove it ... But there was no room in the gym

LAND MINDS, from pg. 2A GMO creators themselves. Withholding information, operating in an opaque manner, giving the public the impression they’re being condescended to ... these are the things that create fear and distrust. Our national political atmosphere will attest to this feeling. “For most people, I suspect, GMOs are a metaphor — a stand-in for all that is vaguely frightening in our food system,” writes Nathanael Johnson, the fair-minded food writer — see his posts at http://goo.gl/Rafvq7 — to the lefty environmental website Grist. “People attach their mistrust of agribusiness and fear of the unknown to this metaphor. So let’s defuse the metaphor: We can disarm the emotional and political triggers in GM food by labeling it.” American farmers grow amazing quantities of amazingly high-tech food. You and I know it’s safe, but the general public — increasingly removed from modern agriculture — isn’t so sure. Let’s label it, and prove it to them. Tom Royer is assistant editor of The Land.

Letter: You can either have government, or freedom OPINION

It’s never been the government’s job in this country to provide a safety net for anyone.

THE LAND, DECEMBER 20, 2013

To the Editor: Do you have a heart for government or a heart for freedom? Most everything you read, except for a few good letters to the editor, would make you think you can’t farm without government subsidies. You need a government-provided safety net, you need the government to conserve your soil, you need government to feed the hungry. When you listen to all the hype, you wonder how you get out of bed in the morning without someone from the government being there to give you a helping hand. It’s never been the government’s job in this country to provide a safety net for anyone. The government is supposed to protect your freedom, that includes the

Rocking joy, praise << www.TheLandOnline.com >> “Where Farm and Family Meet”

GUEBERT, from pg. 4A that was only parted by a middle channel where we passed through to the Promised Land, our assigned seats in the bleachers. The big show began the same way every year: lights were turned down and, in unison, two pianos lit into “Lift Up Ye Heads Ye Mighty Gates.” By the second note our genetic code took over and we marched and sang through the packed gym. Not one flashbulb ever flashed and not one parent ever swooned during these walks down the aisle because, well, we were Missouri Synod Lutherans. Public displays of pride were nearly as verboten as public displays of affection. Then, 90 or so minutes of hymns and Old and New Testament verses later, the program ended with our exodus as everyone sang “Joy to the World.” It may sound blasphemous to say we rocked that gym but that’s exactly what we did — in joy, praise and thanksgiving. The Christmas Eve I was a freshman in college I accompanied my parents to the program. As the children made the exit I spotted a boy wearing what had been until just five months before my blue, doublebreasted wool blazer. My mother, who had made it for me for my high school graduation picture, figured I wouldn’t wear it again so she donated it to the church. She was right; I never did wear it again. Also that year, as in every Christmas program I participated in from 1961 through 1969, the children gladly grabbed a paper sack filled with chocolate candy and oranges as they walked past the kitchen on their way out of the gym. Like I said, my people, young or old, rarely gather unless food is served. This column was originally published in 2011.

Time to pull the government nipple out, say ‘I’m weaned’ want to take the risks do the farming. The people who settled this country just sought freedom. Freedom from a king who controlled everything they did, the freedom to worship the one and only true God, the freedom for those who worshipped others gods to do so. Study Hitler and you’ll see he told the people of Germany that he was just looking out for their welfare. Then look at what happened when he got control. Does this sound familiar? One and a half million children were killed under Hitler. Does this sound familiar? Farmers used to be considered independent and lovers of freedom. That spirit can be alive again. Pull the government nipple out, stand up and say “I’m weaned.” Seek the vision for our country that our forefathers had. Lead

The government doesn’t think you can decide what light bulb to buy, what fuel to put in your car, what shower head to use, what type of car to buy, how to provide your medical care, etc., etc., etc. The government thinks they know how to spend your money better than you do. It seems the farm organizations and checkoff groups feel that way also. This country would never have become known as the land of freedom if everybody wanted a safety net.

Universities big in Cover story: Drones taking farming to another level robotic agriculture By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer You ain’t seen nothing yet! Pardon the grammar or lack thereof. However those five words concisely suggest the exploding warehouse of new intelligence, especially drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) technology, about to usher in the next chapter of American agriculture. It’s all about gathering data, and crop production will be leading the parade. A new firm providing a starting point is 212 Seed & Ag Inc., with facilities at Bird Island and Sacred Heart, Minn. Phil Smith, Jeff Boersma, Kirk Elfering, Tony Schmoll and Bret Neubauer are the entrepreneurs behind 212 Seed & Ag. It’s collectively what these five bring to the table that likely is going to add new chapters to the production strategy of their customers. UAVs are part of their toolbox. For example: • This spring, camera-toting drones flying your fields 200 to 400 feet above the ground start gathering data. • GPS guided, these initial flights will decipher your fields virtually acre by acre. • From accumulated data, 212 Seed & Ag specialists can make variable rate planting maps based on previous yield monitor data, soil type and hybrid

Herding cattle by robots, automated fruit picking and remote tractor operations are other research objectives of various colleges and universities. Robotic weeding is already under way at Iowa State University. Lie Tang, associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, has developed robotic technologies for intra-row weed removal in vegetable crops. Next is developing an automated robot designed to travel over planted rows without disturbing the seeded crops but mechanically destroying any weeds. “There already are larger weeding robots designed for much larger growing operations and requiring high accuracy GPS systems. Few farmers can afford that type of equipment. But for smaller farm-to-market garden operations, robotic weeders might be most intriguing,” Tang said. Not long ago, tracking one gene at a time was progress. Now scientists’ ability to collect and measure genetic data in agriculture has exploded. Data from tens of thouStory on Page 8A sands of genes flow in simultaneously. Cutting-edge technologies allow scientists to peer under the hood of plants and variety positioning. In essence thanks to these (and animals and other organisms) to understand what’s UAV flights they can provide a data card/flash drive going on biologically and how genes function under difto plug into your planter that does variable-rate ferent scenarios. Anymore it’s not just about finding one planting on the go. This data transmission will, in needle in a haystack. Apparently many needles are waiting to be discovered.

Aim is to provide full agriculture production services DRONE, from pg. 8A the near future, be handled via “cloud network.” Data cards will soon become obsolete. • To assure precise planting, 212 Seed & Ag provides precision equipment installation, maintenance and service. • Early in the growing season a second drone flight over your fields can provide exact population data with information as to why there are population variations in a particular field. • At V5 to V8 this camera-equipped drone can be reading fertility deficiencies and collecting weed signature information virtually on a square meter basis with chip information that can be plugged into a crop sprayer for variable foliar and/or drop nozzle applications of specific fertilizer needs or herbicides to combat more problematic weed species. The drone service package includes WingScan software to monitor and transmit the data with eight separate flights in season as well as an accurate weather data recording system providing fieldby-field analysis within the WingScan software. It

will give real-time rainfall calculations as well as soil temperatures and air temperatures. • This service package includes WingScan software to monitor and transmit the data with eight separate flights in season as well as an accurate weather data system to local field-by-field geography within the WingScan software. It will give real-time rainfall calculations as well as soil temperatures and air temperatures. • 212 Seed & Ag also offers a complete crop insurance package. Boersma said that with the Pioneer Field 360 program he can take grower harvest data along with agronomic research data plugged in from Pioneer plots across a given market region and recommend seed selections based on soil type. “With this accumulated data we can, as we say, provide the right product for the right acre. And that even includes special apps for variable-rate planting for both for corn and soybeans. For example we’re learning that higher soybean planting rates on high chlorotic soils work better because you are putting more roots in the soil to fight against the chlorosis,” he said.

He added that prescription maps on soybeans are becoming a big thing. Not yet on the agenda of 212 Seed & Ag is a soil testing service but some new technologies about to unwrap is suggesting this service might soon be happening. North Country Ag Services at Fargo, N.D., is the outfit providing the UAVs to 212 Seed & Ag. At this stage Farm Intelligence/North Country Ag Services claims to be the only firm providing to growers both the seed technology packages and the associated software, which starts with “flying your fields” with drones. This little electric motor-powered bird can manage up to 10,000 acres (eight passes) in one season in any given geography. The UAV is capable of a 50-minute flight based on battery life. It can fly a 640-acre section in about 20 minutes. These UAVs are expensive tools, but a necessity in part to collect the imagery to translate to useable data to make better decisions in multiple different ways. 212 Seed & Ag will be flying two to three UAVs next spring. They flew a few fields this season with growers reporting 100 percent satisfaction on the See DRONE, pg. 12A

Storm events, drought will impact data accuracy DRONE, from pg. 10A new information provided for their cropping programs. These UAVs have a 4-foot wing span, and fly quietly. “I describe it as a turkey vulture flying above your fields,” Boersma said. Camera imagery is good even in wind conditions up to 25 miles per hour. At 200 to 400-feet high, this drone is taking about four pictures per acre. The imagery is stitched together with GPS guidance, then provided to each grower. Two different styles of cameras can be fitted to this drone. NVDI is a near-infrared camera that picks up thermals and other imagery issues;

puts this into the WingScan software package, developed by Farm Intelligence, a Mankato, Minn.,-based firm. This software then takes the imagery gathered by the drone and correlates that information into useful data. This includes accurate stand counts (population loss) which can be measured between the V2 and V5 growth stage of the corn plant which can be correlated to yield estimates. Boersma said this intelligence comes from Purdue University research studying three different kinds of “ear development” in the field. He also cautioned this information will only be as accurate as weather conditions permit. “Dealing with storm events or

drought will obviously impact the accuracy of this early imagery data. But in the right conditions it’s scary how accurate this data is. This is now a full-fledged program that we will offer to each customer that walks through our door,” Boersma said. According to Boersma, Farm Intelligence has several different patents in their software package for weed and disease identification along with software algorithms. This imagery even permits identifying between different weed species like cocklebur, smartweed and water hemp. “This identifies each weed in the field and puts an optical signature on that weed. Their software is also specific on disease IDs, like putting patents on fusarium or phytophthora, etc.” 212 Seed & Ag also has seed handling and seed treatment facilities in place at both locations with significant capacity too; so much so that getting your seed treated is almost a “drive-

through” process. Each facility has bulk seed treating equipment. With 10 separate tanks, they can provide individual treatment on 10 different varieties of seed. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment, they can also do seed treatments on individual seed units. For both corn and soybeans this is a seed count of 140,000. Because soybean seed treatments are already a common strategy, 212 Seed & Ag indicates soybeans will be the bulk of their seed treating service, a least initially. Pioneer Premium Seed Treatments is the handle for the Pioneer seed treatment program. Each year new formulations, new insecticides, new biological, new inoculants and new fungicides are coming into the market. Soybean cyst nematode resistance currently is provided through the genetics of the seed, but Boersma said See DRONE, pg. 14A

Association with college seen as invaluable DRONE, from pg. 12A seed treatments are likely to be another strategy against this costly soybean disease issue. Of course, all of these offerings come with a price. Wanting farmers to grow with their service and seed packages, Boersma said tentatively they are looking at a contract package of at least 600 acres per customer. “We don’t want all of their acres. We want to grow with them, and vice versa of course. We’re putting a fair amount of data and In this expandtime into each potening new busitial account.

So to make this cost-efficient for us, that 600-acre package is our starting point and we’re charging $14 per acre.” 212 Seed & Ag is offering a discount with early purchase of their program. They are doing their “crop management” program as a separate entity from the seed business. That means you don’t need to buy Pioneer seed to hire the crop programming package. Data files will keep growing. For example they can overlay soil maps on this software and it spews out data on which varieties work better on which soils. It tracks how many plants of “variety A” versus “variety B” emerged on a particular soil. “It will even track seed treatments collecting data indicating results of a particular seed treatment. And of course the bottom line is data verifying where and why the extra yield. A grower needs only about 1 1/2 bushels to pay for the seed treatment,” Boersma said. 212 Seed & Ag receives its first two drones in February, followed by some extensive training to operate. An area community college is asking if they can provide some of their GPS students for intern training. “In this expanding new business world, quick access to trained interns is invaluable,” Boersma said, himself a graduate of Ridgewater Community College in Willmar, Minn. All five partners in 212 Seed & Ag Inc. are Pioneer sales representatives working under a single business umbrella. This is a new business concept permitted by DuPont Pioneer in the meshing of five independent agencies into a single agency. “At this stage we’re excited and feeling good about this mutual association. How we mesh with each grower on the total database we can provide is where the real excitement will be. To use the old phrase, there’ll be lots of cross-pollination among the five of us,” Boersma said. ❖


Aviation schools prepare for boom in drone jobs from the ground: You can’t feel what’s going on. “You don’t have feedback,” Regenhard said. “When you push the yoke forward in the aircraft, you feel yourself and everything going down. With this, you just see it.” Drones are best known for their use by the U.S. military, but other markets beckon. Amazon made a splash earlier this month by unveiling an embryonic effort that might someday deliver packages by drone, though the company acknowledged practical use is years away. Most of the potential civilian drone market is in precision agriculture. Unmanned aircraft are already used for seeding and spraying in Japan. Drones may be used someday to detect disease in crops, depending on the development of sensors. The potential applications for other unmanned aircraft are endless, said Michael Toscano, president and CEO of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International.

Distributed by the Associated Press Two student pilots are seated shoulder to shoulder before a bank of video monitors, maneuvering an unmanned aircraft by keyboard and mouse as the drone descends toward a virtual runway in a suburban landscape. Aaron Gabrielson and Andrew Regenhard, aviation students at the University of North Dakota and selfproclaimed video-game junkies, could just as well be sitting on a couch playing Xbox. But instead of tapping their fingers on a controller, they’re learning to fly the plane and use onboard equipment that includes a camera with a zoom lens. “Some people argue that nothing is going to be like flying an actual airplane. Granted, looking down and seeing you’re 5,000 feet above the ground is pretty exciting, but I’ve always been addicted to video games, and this is awesome,” Regenhard said. Mastering the Corsair simulator is the first practice course for the two trainees, who are among hundreds of student pilots nationwide preparing for jobs that don’t exist yet. They and their classmates are eager to cash in on the booming market for drone operators that’s expected to develop after

FAA projects 7,500 commercial drones in five years UND, from pg. 15A of fuel, was originally developed to help commercial fishermen find and track schools of tuna. The Navy has used the plane to watch pirates. In recent years, North Dakota law enforcement and the university have used the drone to monitor rivers during flood threats in the Red River Valley. For students, it all adds up to strong job prospects after graduation. “Whether it’s designing a vehicle to go into forest fires or catch poachers in the Galapagos, they’re getting opportunities to be part of the next generation of aerospace like no one else is,” said Melanie Hanns, EmbryRiddle spokeswoman. Many students who grew up want-

ing to be commercial airline pilots are changing their major to unmanned systems. Among them are self-proclaimed computer geeks who don’t mind staying in one place. “Airplanes are cool and fun and all that stuff,” said Logan Lass, a student at North Dakota. “But it’s my particular personality that I don’t really want to fly big jets. Growing up around computers and having a love for aviation, I figured the best option was to combine the two of them.” Over the last decade, it’s gotten much tougher to get a job as an airline pilot. Many pilots started out at smaller regional airlines, but pay there is poor, and airlines are shifting away from smaller planes. Meanwhile, growth has been minimal at major U.S. airlines, cutting the number of

new jobs for pilots, and bankruptcies have reduced pay. Compare that to the outlook for drones. The Federal Aviation Administration projects some 7,500 commercial drones could be aloft within five years of getting widespread access to American airspace. An industry-commissioned study last spring predicted more than 70,000 jobs would develop in the first three years after Congress loosens restrictions on U.S. skies. The same study projects an average salary range for a drone pilot between $85,000 and $115,000. Palmer, the UND instructor, said one of the first graduates in the school’s UAS program took a job with a California aeronautics company for $50 an hour.

“That’s probably not bad for a kid out of college,” Palmer said. The hopes for civilian drones might not be realized as quickly as many people in the business had hoped. Concerns about security, privacy and whether drones will be able to detect and avoid other aircraft could push the grand opening beyond a 2015 deadline set by Congress. In the meantime, North Dakota’s unmanned aircraft students are looking to master the Corsair simulator. Then they advance in January to train for the larger MQ-1 Predator and MQ9 Reaper drones. “That is what a lot of employers are looking for,” aviation student Spencer Wheeler said. “That’s why I came to school here. This is the Harvard of aviation.” ❖

More advanced pruning methods aid in improving the tree’s structure and long-term health. Proper pruning encourages growth, increases flower and fruit production, improves plant health and removes damaged limbs, all which give aesthetic appeal to a tree. Pruning at the right time and in the right way is critical, since it is possible to kill a tree through neglect or over-pruning. How can a homeowner know if an arborist will prune a tree correctly? “Ask the arborist if they prune according to the American National Standards Institute standard for tree pruning, which is called ANSI A300,” Andersen said. This standard recommends, and in some cases requires, that the use of certain tools, cutting techniques and pruning methods be followed, and sets the standard definitions for terms the arborist will use in your estimate. Properly written work estimates for tree pruning should be written in accordance with ANSI A300 standards. In addition to the information given on the work estimate, ANSI A300 sets some guidelines for basic pruning practices that arborists should follow. Arborists adhering to the ANSI A300 pruning standard will ... • not leave branch stubs • make few or no heading cuts • not cut off the branch collar (not make a flush cut) • not top or lion’s tail trees (stripping a branch from the inside leaving foliage just at the ends) • not remove more than 25 percent of the foliage of a single branch • not remove more than 25 percent of the total tree

THE LAND, DECEMBER 20, 2013

You and your landscape trees have made it through another season — drought, insects or early leaf drop might have been the battles you had to fight for months ... at least as far as your trees are concerned. You may think that because the now dormant, leafless trees have made it this far into the calendar, you can now breathe easy. Think again. With winter storms approaching, hazards in trees should be removed now — before they damage property or the tree. Winter is a great time to examine the stability and health of your trees, say tree care experts. Why? With the leaves off, cracks, defects and deadwood are easier to see. “Most trees can be pruned year-round, if pruned properly,” said Tchukki Andersen, staff arborist for the Tree Care Industry Association. “And certain operations are easier to do in the winter, if the ground is frozen or the tree is not actively growing.” Some homeowners worry that arborists will not be able to determine dead wood on a tree when the leaves are off. “On the contrary,” Andersen said. “This is the best time for an arborist to locate deadwood by looking for changes in branch color, fungus growth, cracks and other symptoms that can help them make this determination. Since the leaves are off, the view of the entire tree’s architecture is clear and a thorough check can be performed.” Pruning is much more than the simple act of sawing off limbs. Proper pruning is an art based on scientific principles of plant physiology. At its most basic level, pruning trees involves removing damaged, dead or structurally weak limbs, which will improve a tree’s health and reduce the chances of personal or property damage caused by falling limbs.

We’ve put in many of these systems over the past

few years with researchers across the hog belt. And we’re now moving into the broiler industry in the southern states with the same network of technology.” Feedlogic is also in the business of providing diet-blending equipment and micro-ingredients applicators for use on production farms. The FeedSaver system can blend and deliver multiple diets designed for a specific production application. Their BlendTronic system injects small amounts of ingredients directly into the feed stream at exactly the right time. When used for blending diets and mixing ingredients on the farm, Ostaffe claims the system can ... • Improve efficacy of treatment plan. • Reduce costly waste. • Apply exactly when needed. • Apply a precise amount. • Allow use of products which are difficult or impossible for a mill to manage. • Track product usage in real time through MyFarm web service. • See historic product usage at any time.

Electronic feed monitoring offers farmers peace of mind program. Typically a contract finisher or even a private grower-finisher does 8 a.m. chores and that could be it for the next 24-hour period. But what happens if the pigs run out of feed at 8:30? The feed bridges, feed supply in the bin wasn’t checked, or whatever happens there’s no longer feed for those pigs or turkeys or chickens. The FeedMeter system of FeedLogic will alert you with a text to your cell phone, or message to your computer, telling you for example that “Line 1, Barn 3” is out of feed. If you desire, this same monitoring system can be accessed directly by your feed supplier, alerting

them to low bin levels and a need for resupply. “When it’s below zero, winds are howling, and there’s three feet of snow on the ground, no one wants to be climbing 20 feet up a ladder to check feed bin levels,” Ostaffe said. “Our system measures how much feed is coming out each day, determines how much is left in the bin, and that info tells you or your feed supplier what needs to be done and when.” For more information, call Feedlogic Corp. at (320) 222-3000, e-mail info@feedlogic.com or log on to www.feedlogic.com. ❖

FEED, from pg. 20A through the primary feed line. Data from the FeedMeter is used by the BlendTronic controller to accurately control the micro dispensing system to provide the correct injection rate for the current feed flow. The Communications Hub provides system performance data to the internet cloud network, where the MyFarm program enables farm workers, production managers and supply chain partners to access, analyze and take action on the data.” The Feedlogic wireless sensor platform is already big with the turkey industry in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest, and markets are expanding worldwide. The firm now has a distributor in Australia. How does a livestock man buy in to what Feedlogic offers? Ostaffe said the investment in the FEEDPro system is a big ticket item, best fitting with large integrators, veterinarian groups, feed manufacturers, etc. But he also indicated Feedlogic can provide different pieces of equipment for the smaller-scale producer to blend different diets for maximum feed efficiency. This package would let a producer do “on-the-fly” blending (diet mixing) which would allow dividing your finishing barn, gilts or barrows. You could also segment by size differentiation, meaning lighter animals versus heavier animals in different pens. “You’re saving money by not feeding all animals the high-energy diet that the ‘lights’ need,” Ostaffe said, “but feeding the remainder on the appropriate curve. Research shows savings of several dollars per head by this diet mixing of segmented groups of animals.” The reality of this technology is that a producer could be slightly altering his rations virtually every day as growth and appetites dictate. “Normally a hog man has five diets with some significant step changes from one diet to the next in the growing and finishing process,” he said, “but here I can take these two diets, each in a separate bin, and let the system automatically blend whatever ratio I want by month, by week, even by day shutting down the high-energy portion by a fraction each day.” Is this technology a bonus to feed manufacturers? Ostaffe said that when you’re blending two different diets as the program automatically dictates you are reducing the complexity of the supply chain. That results in more precise nutrition into the belly of each pig each day. “You’re giving your animals exactly what they need when they need it,” Ostaffe said. “You’re not overfeeding; you’re not underfeeding. We’ve done enough different trials to validate improvements of $3 to $4 per head per turn in reduced feed costs. And because of a perfectly balanced meal every time they eat, we’re also seeing reduced mortalities, especially in nursery pens.” Because of faster gains you have the opportunity of more through-put in a given facility each year. That, too, can be a “big buck” item in year-end enterprise analyses. In addition, this continuous monitoring of your feeding regime should produce more uniform weights at market time — which again can be a market bonus. Peace of mind, however, is perhaps the bigger benefit of going to electronic monitoring of your feeding

Ambition to do better will help feed the world BARTH, from pg. 23A how we vote” environment definitely has some political muscle. Q: U.S. agriculture has enjoyed good times for a few years. Is that same bonanza happening with farmers worldwide? A: Yes, indeed. Technology and good money isn’t just an American farmer phenomenon. Back in the ’60s they told us we have to teach the world how to feed them. We’ve done a real good job of that. Thanks to irrigation and technology, over the last 10 years the percent of arable land has actually increased by almost 15 percent around the world. Q: Ethanol from corn is now a huge industry. Can cellulosic energy become the next major player? A: I think so, but not as quickly as

people are hoping. Still lots of challenges in the riddle of how to make it work, and at a profit. Q: With world population ramping up to 9-billion-plus people by 2050, will there still be enough food? A: Absolutely. This tremendous industry called agriculture is blessed with creative people, tremendous technology and, most importantly, a tremendous ambition to do better tomorrow than we did today. If governments around the world don’t clutter the landscape, farmers will get the job done in 2050 also. The above Q&A is from an interview given prior to Barth’s 90-minute presentation to nearly 300 farmers Nov. 21 at an Albert Lea Seed House open house.

Record $8 billion earned through Minnesota ag exports and rural economies,” said MDA Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “These significant gains point to why our focus on developing and expanding export markets in Minnesota is paying off for our farmers who grow and produce for both U.S. consumers and worldwide markets.” According to Su Ye, MDA’s chief economist, agricultural exports support more than 68,800 jobs in Minnesota and generate additional economic and business activities in many non-agricultural sectors, such as manufacturing, transportation, services and many more.

Minnesota’s agricultural exports hit a record-high of $8.2 billion last year, according to figures released by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. The 2012 total is a 14 percent increase or almost $1 billion more than 2011. Minnesota also moved up in the national rankings of the largest agricultural exporting states by securing the No. 4 spot, which is up two places from 2011. Minnesota’s top export commodities were soybeans, corn, pork and feed, which accounted for more than 60 percent of the state’s total agricultural exports. More than one-third of Minnesota’s total agricultural production is exported. Agriculture is Minnesota’s second-largest exporting sector with major markets in China, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Korea and Taiwan. “Agriculture exports contribute greatly to our state

Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden announced the appointment of 20 members to serve on the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Beginning Farmers and Ranchers during a trip to the University of Delaware. The committee will provide guidance to the secretary on expanding opportunities that will help beginning farmers and ranchers succeed in agriculture. “The next generation of America’s farmers and ranchers are more diverse than ever before, have new market opportunities and continue to bring innovative ideas to the agriculture industry,” Harden said. “The secretary and I look forward to working closely with this advisory committee to continue supporting the promise of agriculture’s future. At the same time, we need passage of a new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill to invest in support and assistance for new farmers in the years to come.” Minnesotans Timothy M. Gossman, farm loan officer/senior vice president of the Root River State Bank, and Peter Scheffert, farm loan officer with Farmers State Bank of Hartland are among those asked to serve on the committee through September 2015. The committee will provide public and industry perspectives on U.S. Department of Agriculture strategies, policies and programs to broadly capture the many issues relevant to beginning farmers and ranchers including, but not limited to, opportunities in local food systems, generational transfers, training and credit. The committee’s upcoming meeting will be announced in the Federal Register prior to the meeting and will include the meeting date, details and topics for discussion. Information will also be available on the committee’s website at www.outreach.usda.gov/committees/ACBFR.htm. ❖

Deadline to request beef referendum ballots extended To ensure maximum participation and opportunity to learn about the upcoming beef referendum, the deadline for Minnesota beef producers to request a ballot has been extended until Jan. 17. “After holding public hearings with producers we have decided this extension will make it easier for the maximum number of Minnesota beef producers to participate and make an informed decision about this important referendum,” said Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “I strongly encourage all of Minnesota’s beef producers to get involved and request a ballot.” To ensure producers are on the list to receive a ballot by mail, they can request it in one of three ways. The MDA’s website has a ballot request form — www.mda.state.mn.us/ballots — or producers can call the MDA at (651) 201-6013. Lastly, they can request a ballot by calling the Minnesota Beef Research and Promotion Council at (952) 854-6980. The Minnesota Beef Research and Promotion Council is proposing to increase the amount of the current state checkoff by an additional $1 per head on all bovine animals marketed within Minnesota by each producer or feeder. The additional $1 per head is voluntary. Dairy cows purchased by a dairy producer specifically for milk production are not subject to the checkoff. Dairy cows and veal calves sold by a dairy producer for the purpose of slaughter are subject to the checkoff. Producers who request a ballot by Jan. 17 can expect to receive a ballot in the mail in early March. To learn more about how the Minnesota Beef Council utilizes checkoff dollars, producers are encouraged to contact the council at (952) 854-6980. ❖

Rep. Deb Kiel bringing ag knowledge to St. Paul Red River Valley farmer one of just 10 farmers, 34 women in Minnesota state legislature

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer The trend is that agriculture’s voice in government is shrinking. The right voice in the right place, however, can and still does make a difference. Just 10 farmers populate the Minnesota state legislature. One of those is Rep. Deb Kiel who, with husband, Lonn, farms south of Crookston. Kiel is currently serving her second term as a house member. “Few have any understanding of agriculture,” Kiel said of her peers in St. Paul. “Even if they have rural roots dating back a generation or two, farming has advanced so greatly that I doubt many of my colleagues truly comprehend this dynamic industry. “I don’t want to be overly critical because some do

want to grasp what this business of agriculture is all about. And when they see the huge input of agriculture into the Minnesota economy, they recognize the importance of farmers.” In a brief visit with The Land at last month’s Agri-Growth Council annual meeting, Kiel said that as Deb Kiel more women get elected agriculture may have a better audience, suggesting that women don’t have such a “fixed mind” going into debating new legislation. Thirty-four women currently make up the 134 members of the Minnesota House of Representatives. “I grew up on a farm and love the opportunity to tell the ‘farm story’ to my colleagues,” Kiel said. Her Red River Valley farm grows wheat, soybeans and corn. They used to include some cattle, hogs and a few chickens, too. Key issues for Kiel when the 2014 session begins

Feb. 25? “Water, particularly ground water and the Few have any nitrate nitrogen understanding of issue which often agriculture. Even unfairly condemns agriculture. Also if they have rural food labeling, GMO roots dating back issues as it relates a generation or to food. And that two, farming has starts with simply advanced so understanding the greatly that I differences between GMO and nondoubt many of GMO foods. Way too my colleagues much fright about truly comprehend this issue but this dynamic mostly because industry. they don’t understand. Yet GMO — Deb Kiel crops are the very reason for much of the tremendous increase in productivity on our farms; feeding the world very much depends upon this technology in our fields.” Kiel is unsure about the future of food labeling. She knows it is a “consumer-driven” interest at this point, but is concerned about the additional costs labeling would generate at the grocery store. “Sure, we perhaps need to do this but only if it is not a costly expense to the consumer and especially when there appears to be no hard evidence that non-GMO foods are nutritionally healthier foods.” Of more immediate concern to Kiel is new tax legislation passed in the 2013 session that has not yet come into play. “I think as farmers wind up this crop season,” she said, “and start paying bills for seed, fuel and fertilizer, maybe even a few farm machinery loans, they will realize their tax load is suddenly quite a bit more than last year.” Kiel said that agriculture has enjoyed five to six “golden years” that have helped build farmers’ worth, but added that some “flatter years” are starting right now. “I don’t think farmers have an issue with the need for better roads, better education and those sorts of things which are, in fact, better done by government,” she said. “But I quickly sense their frustration when it gets to be an overabundance and more taxes seems the only remedy. They tell me when it’s time for government to pull in its reins. And this is particularly tough for younger farmers just trying to get a start in this farming business. “We’re hurting those young farmers on the edge. Information and education for our young people is so important so that they understand both the opportunities and the challenges of this tremendous industry of agriculture. Agribusiness just keeps getting bigger and we need to advise both young people and our elected officials that this is a growing, dynamic business.” ❖

Cover crops growing across Minnesota, Iowa The use of radish as a cover crop is growing in popularity. Albert Lea Seed markets tillage radish under the name Nutrient Scavenger. Citing University of Maryland research, up to 150 pounds of soil and residual nitrogen are taken up in the fall by the radish, then stored over winter and released in the spring. This particularly applies in a situation where manure is applied in the fall. Leavitt credits Cover Crop Solutions for doing considerable research both with farmers and university researchers. Studies show tillage radish increases the soil’s bacteriovores, which feed on nematodes and increases the nitrogen cycling process mineralizing available nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium and sulfur. The taproot of tillage radish can penetrate up to 30 inches into the soil profile which is why this crop is referred to as a nutrient scavenger. This is also why breaking up hardpan is another

attribute. “It definitely has a lot of push,” Leavitt said, recommending planting this crop four to 10 weeks before a killing frost. The seeding rate of radish is 4 pounds per acre if drilled, 6 to 8 pounds per acre if broadcast. Seeds costs are about $3.40 per pound “so at most you’d be spending about $30 per acre.” Besides the big sales of rye and radish, mixes of cover crops are also increasing. Just as the name implies, a cover crop mix could be radish and oats; or radish, triticale and crimson clover, etc. “We generally recommend a mix over a single species in most cases,” Leavitt said. This strategy means no tillage of the cover crop field until preparing for spring planting. “It looks like a lot of material, but this foliage is very succulent and breaks down almost completely by next spring,” he said. ❖ Bring in a new, unwrapped toy and we’ll give you $5 off your next oil change!

rygve Trooien does not fit the stereotype of a Norwegian bachelor farmer. It is true that you will always see him in a pair of bib overalls, even when he is ushering at church. But the stereotype breaks down when you realize that he is a man who puts on fashion shows … of bib overalls. The Oak Lake Farms Bib Overall Modeling Show was started in 2000. It displays a portion of Trooien’s collection, which has 80 different models representing 42 brands. “I’m just a pack rat,” Trooien said. “After saving a lot of overalls I decided what I’ve got is worth something.” He’s not just a saver. Trooien is also a historian of bib overalls. He has collected the tags that come on a pair of new overalls, which tell the selling points a company used to promote their brand. Only a handful are still made in the United States, he said. The Bib Overall Modeling Show has been seen in South Dakota and Minnesota. One of his regular models is Kelly Hawks, a mother of four who can still make a pair of bib overalls look fashionable. Pictured here, Hawks is wearing Lee Striped Low Back Overalls, and holding a Lee Creamery Special — same style, but lighter material and mostly white so it was easy to see if they were kept clean. In the photo, Trooien is holding a pair of Lee Wide Stripe Carpenter Special, while wearing one of the few brands still made in the United States — Round House. That brand was created in 1903 for railroad men. The collection continues to grow. A few friends have donated a pair they have found, but he has purchased most of them. “Whenever I saw a brand I hadn’t tried, I’d buy it to try,” he said. And in so doing he has gathered a history of bib overalls. “Every company had their own unique features.” Trooien traveled the world while in the Army, but found no better place and returned to the farm where he was born, three miles into South Dakota. But Hendricks, Minn., is his home town. At age 63 he is reducing his farming operation, but sits on the boards of the Lincoln County Pioneer Museum and of the Hendricks Farmers Lumber Co. If your group is interested in the Bib Overall Modeling Show, you can call Trooien at (605) 8324401. “Wherever we go, we request the group to furnish models,” he said. ❖

The following market analysis is for the week ending Dec. 13. CORN — We started the week with a push to the upside, but the December crop report didn’t provide us with enough bullishness to hold gains. The crop report pegged 2013-14 ending stocks at 1.792 billion bushels, down 95 million bushels from November’s 1.887 billion bushel figure. This carryout would be the biggest since 2005-06. No production changes were made on the 2013-14 balance sheet; we’ll have to wait for the Jan. 10 report for that. Both food, seed and industrial and ethanol usage were raised 50 PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. million bushels and imports were St. Paul increased 5 million bushels. The stocks-to-use ratio fell from 14.6 percent to 13.7 percent. The average farm price forecast is $4.05 to $4.75 per bushel. World ending stocks at 164.5 million metric tons were cut nearly 2 mmt from the last report and versus 163.3 mmt estimated. Any positive view of the corn report was erased by the decidedly negative wheat report. Wheat carryout at 575 million bushels was up 10 million bushels from last month and was in sharp contrast to the 540-million-bushel estimate. Canada’s wheat crop is now pegged at 37.5 mmt versus 33.2 mmt in November. Looking ahead to the Jan. 10 final crop and grain stocks as of Dec. 1 reports, U.S. corn stocks as of Dec. 1 have exceeded estimates in three of the last five years by 300 million to 350 million bushels. U.S. corn

With winter moving upon the country in full swing, the livestock markets appear to be snowbound. The first two weeks of December have offered just steady to lower prices, and both cattle and hog markets seem to be struggling to maintain current price levels. It still boils down to the struggle between supply and demand for the cattle market. While the supply of cattle does not seem burdensome in historic standards at the present time, with the current economic conditions, the supply of cattle is adequate. From the demand side, the economic conditions are burdensome as the movement of beef is slow in comparison to recent years. JOE TEALE Broker Because of these changes that Great Plains Commodity have taken place over the past Afton, Minn. year, a standoff has developed. Feedlots continue to look at the supply and demand higher prices, and the packer looks at the slumping demand and fights to keep bids defensive. The result is what is currently happening — a sluggish to steady range-bound market. Taking into consideration that disposable income is likely to shrink even more in 2014, it would seem hard to believe that the demand for beef will improve considering there is better value in competitive meats. This may put the cattle market in a precarious position, where the lack of demand overwhelms supply and prices retract. Producers should approach the market with caution and protect inventories when conditions warrant. Supply is the cause for the hog market’s weakness in the first half of December, despite the fairly good demand for pork products. The problem has been See TEALE, pg. 2B

Finally, the crop is in the bin or delivered to town and, wishfully, we think we might have some time to catch our breath. Think again! November and December may bring a reprieve from field work, but we don’t get any breaks when it comes to planning ahead, getting our financial books in order before yearend, and taking a look at 2014. Plan, plan, plan Even with the marginal 2014 new crop prices we are facing, for the majority of farmers 2013 profitability has been fantastic. This leads a lot of us to start looking at practical tax planning tools, like equipment purchases that may help our operations manage some MARTY KRIENER of the tax consequences from 2013. AgStar Senior Financial It’s important to review all the Services Executive Rochester, Minn. options to determine the best plan of attack for your unique operation. With all the busy work involved when reviewing 2013, don’t forget to watch 2014 break-evens and projections and how our 2013 year-end plans will impact these future numbers. I recently attended an Archer Daniels Midland lookout meeting that focused on the fact that our 2013 world-ending stocks are at the highest level since 1999, with a forecasted price of $4.40 for 2014. It is well known that demand is much greater today, but that doesn’t relieve the current price pressure that these large stock levels bring. It’s important to keep an open mind on pricing grains at close to break-even rates to take some of the risk out of this tough marketing year.

THE LAND, DECEMBER 20, 2013

2 B

South American soybeans blocking higher prices NYSTROM, from pg. 1B production has increased from the November to January crop report in seven of the last 10 years by 80 million to 180 million bushels. The Chinese corn saga remains unresolved. They are still rejecting corn that tests positive for MIR162. Imports of dried distillers’ grain are also being tested. Reportedly, 4,000 to 5,000 mt of DDGs have been quarantined. It’s estimated as many as 14 to 19 U.S. corn cargoes have been rejected. Asian countries that accept the GMO variety have reportedly been buying the rejected corn. China’s think tank is forecasting corn production at 217.7 mmt versus the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 211 mmt prediction and prices are much lower than when they were bought. Any correlation? Weekly corn export sales were 27.4 million bushels for this year and 4.3 million for next year. Sales need to average just 11.8 million bushels per week to achieve the latest USDA 1.45-

billion-bushel estimate. The lowest average weekly sales from now until the end of the crop year were last year at 16.8 million bushels. A higher export forecast is anticipated for the next crop report. There were 240,000 mt of old crop corn sales to unknown announced this week by the USDA. OUTLOOK: On the bullish side, funds are carrying a sizable net short corn position and fund rebalancing will require this short to be reduced. On the bearish side, the dark cloud of uncertainty surrounding the MIR612 issue with China and a healthy U.S. carryout may limit upside opportunities. I believe we’re stuck in a trading range until we get through the holidays. The support and resistance levels will stay in place at $4.20 to $4.40/$4.50 per bushel. For the week, March corn fell 8 3/4 cents to $4.25 1/2 per bushel and December 2014 corn closed at $4.52 1/2, down 11 1/4 cents.

KRIENER, from pg. 1B sight of protecting your downside price risk with a combination of options and crop insurance. If you are uncomfortable with options, remember, your crop insurance agent can help you look at higher levels of crop insurance or multiple price discovery products to help minimize further downward movement in revenue as well. In combination with protecting price, we all need to excel in keeping our costs in line with these tight margins. It’s never easy to hit “home runs” in reducing costs in only one expense category. The only sure way to reduce overall expenses and have a more profound effect is to save a little bit in every expense category. That’s how to produce solid expense reductions. Expectations for 2014 With the current market giving us little or no profitability, what are realistic goals for 2014 and 2015? Can our operation weather through large losses? We’ve had fantastic equity gains in the grain industry the last several years and we don’t want to give our hard-earned money back. Be prepared to protect your equity from deteriorating if the market turns lower with the following suggestions. • Buy your crop insurance up a level and take advantage of a subsidized premium. Don’t be scared to write 85

percent coverage as your first line of defense to help protect as much revenue as possible and to minimize loss if prices move downward this fall. • Keep building and tweaking your marketing plan to complement insurance and to protect your operation from deterioration. Be prepared to capture profitably rallies when available. • Continue to monitor your land costs closely; it is likely that this is your largest expense. Use a discussion regarding flex leases as an alternative to traditional leases and as a means to educate landlords on this subject matter. • Do you have a relationship with a commodity broker? If not, start to build one today. This doesn’t mean you need to participate in this market, but starting the discussion now will help you be ready when the timing is right. The profit margin in the grain industry has gotten more challenging in today’s market but, with a sound plan, it’s still a great industry to be in. With great volatility comes great opportunities; it’s important that we are prepared when the timing is right to make our planned moves.

Here’s a little price action tidbit for Christmas: in the last 10 years, March corn has closed higher nine times both the day before and the day after Christmas. For January soybeans in the last 10 years: it has closed higher the day before nine times, and closed higher the day after eight times. SOYBEANS — Soybeans raced higher as we returned from the weekend on the anticipation that the ending stocks number on the Dec. 10 crop report would shrink and on talk of fresh bean sales to China. China hit the market early by buying 230,000 mt of old crop and 60,000 mt of new crop soybeans. However, the lack of additional sales through the week and a fading bean basis clipped early week gains. The nearby inverse on the futures market concurrently narrowed as basis declined. January soybeans closed out the week at $13.27 1/2, 2 cents higher per bushel and November 2014 beans at $11.57 3/4 were down 6 1/2 cents per bushel. The Dec. 10 crop report was slightly friendly to the soybean market with 2013-14 ending stocks falling 20 million bushels to 150 million bushels. The average estimate was 153 million bushels. Changes to the balance sheet included an increase in imports of 10 million bushels (probably from South America next summer), a pop higher in crush of 5 million and exports raised 25 million bushels. The ending stocksto-use ratio declined from 5.2 percent to 4.6 percent. The average national farm price was raised 35 cents on both ends of the range to $11.50 to $13.50 per bushel. World ending stocks were a record high at 70.6 mmt, but below the 71.4 mmt forecast. Brazilian production was left unchanged at 88 mmt when Conab’s latest number is 90 mmt and the U.S. attaché to Brazil is at 88.5 mmt. There

continue to be rumors that Brazilian farmers will plant a second crop of beans instead of corn, which would add to the already huge crop prediction. Argentina’s production number was 1 mmt higher at 54.4 mmt. China’s import figure was unchanged at 69 mmt, compared to last year’s 59.9 mmt. A little interesting history: the December crop report has underestimated soybean demand in five of the last six years. The November to final January production numbers has increased in five of the last six years by 45 million to 80 million bushels. Weekly exports were surprisingly huge this week at 40.7 million bushels for old crop and 15.2 million for new crop. This brings total commitments to an astounding 96 percent of the total export projection. We only need to sell 2.4 million bushels per week to hit the USDA forecast of 1.475 billion bushels. The smallest weekly average bean sales in over 30 years were in 2003-04 at 5 million bushels per week. Exports sales should again be increased on the next crop report, but expectations that production will also be raised may limit the effect on the bottom line. U.S. soybeans are not competitive with South America from February forward. OUTLOOK: China continues to be interested in U.S. soybeans and the 150-million-bushel carryout is tight, but a huge South American crop and heavy fund length going into year-end may act as a roadblock to significantly higher prices. Any sign of bean cancellations or a slowdown in sales or shipments could push soybean prices to test support at $12.90/$12.70 per bushel. Direction through the end of the year will hinge on the pace of export sales and fund activity. This material has been prepared by a sales or trading employee or agent of CHS Hedging Inc. and should be considered a solicitation. ❖

Weights up, supply up TEALE, from pg. 1B that pork production has been more than adequate to meet the current demand, even though demand has been good. One contributing factor to this increase in the supply of pork product is the fact that hog weights are much greater than a year ago. This increases the total pork production regardless of the numbers of hogs. Because of the value of pork in comparison to competitive meats, there is a good chance that it will eventually help stabilize the hog market. Weather could

have some effect on the market in the days ahead as cold temperatures at times hinder the logistics of moving animals. Considering the deferred futures contracts holding large premiums to the current cash price, the atmosphere is tending to indicate a friendlier outlook by many in the trade. Producers should consider these premiums as a possible opportunity and lock-in inventories if it provides adequate price protection. I would like to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ❖


No farm bill in 2013; no ‘dairy cliff’ ahead either year ago, as Jan. 1, 2013, was approaching, there was much speculation about what could happen if Congress failed to either enact a new farm bill or extend the old one. In the lingo of the day, this date was referred to as the “dairy cliff.” He said there is common agreement that a farm bill extension should be avoided but it’s clear that the process won’t be completed before Dec. 31.

Dairy price supports won’t revert to their 1949 version until Jan. 1, Novakovic said, assuming there is no action by Congress to avert it before then. A literal interpretation of reverting to the 1949 act would be that the secretary would be obliged to announce a support price for milk of no less than 75 percent of the parity price for milk on Jan. 1, based on the See MIELKE, pg. 4B

Expect 2014 milk output to hit 205 billion pounds MIELKE, from pg. 3B parity price calculated for December 2013. Although the 1949 (and 1938) programs literally become the law of the land upon expiration of the current farm bill, nothing actually happens until the U.S. Department of Agriculture takes certain actions, a “tricky bit of business for the secretary,” Novakovic wrote. “The secretary can announce a $37 support price for milk, but until USDA announces the purchase prices for dairy commodities and releases the formal invitations for offers at those purchase prices, nothing happens to markets, other than perhaps rampant speculation. It is the USDA’s purchases of butter, cheese and nonfat dry milk at specific prices that moves market prices, not a simple declaration by the secretary about the support price for milk. The USDA could take a while to get machinery in motion, while Congress presumably came to its senses and retroactively stopped it all.” “Inasmuch as the secretary has a

fair amount of flexibility in how he implements the support program, it is conceivable that the secretary might invoke a rule-making procedure to solicit comments from the industry on how to implement a required support price of $37 or whatever it might be. This could forestall actual market intervention for a period of time.” Read complete details at www.dairymarkets.org/PubPod/Pubs/ IL13-04.pdf. ■ The USDA reduced its 2013 milk production forecast slightly from last month, in this week’s World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report, based on recent estimates of cow numbers. Department bean counters now project output at 201.6 billion pounds, down 100 million pounds from last month’s estimate, and compares to 200.3 billion in 2012. The forecast for 2014 was raised as higher milk forecast prices and lower expected feed costs support a more rapid increase in cow

numbers and output per cow. Look for 2014 output to hit 205.3 billion pounds, up 400 million pounds from last month. ■ The 2013 cheese price forecast was reduced, reflecting current prices. However, strength in current prices for butter, nonfat dry milk and whey resulted in higher price forecasts for those products. For 2014, despite higher dairy production, demand strength in importing countries and improving domestic demand in the United States is expected to support prices for all products, according to the USDA. The 2013 Class III milk price forecast was unchanged as lower forecast cheese prices offset higher whey prices but the forecast was raised for 2014 based on higher forecast cheese and whey prices. The 2013 average is now projected at $17.90 to $18, unchanged from last month’s report, and compares to $17.44 in 2012 and $18.37 in 2011. The 2014 average is expected at $17.05 to $17.85, up from the $16.85-$17.75 projected a month ago. The Class IV price forecast was raised for both years on higher butter and NDM prices. The 2013 average was estimated at $18.95 to $19.15, up 15 cents on both ends and compares to

$16.01 in 2012 and $19.04 in 2011. The 2014 Class IV average was projected at $19 to $19.90, up from last month’s $18.60 to $19.60. ■ On the feed side of the equation, U.S. corn use for 2013-14 was projected higher, with increases for food, seed and industrial use and for exports. Corn used in ethanol production was projected 50 million bushels higher, reflecting the strong pace of weekly ethanol production since mid-October. Corn used for ethanol production in the 2013-14 marketing year was estimated at 4.95 billion bushels, up from 4.90 billion bushels estimated in November, and up from 4.65 billion bushels used in 2012-13. Exports are also projected 50 million bushels higher based on the pace of sales to date and higher expected global consumption. Projected U.S. ending stocks are lowered 95 million bushels. Even with lower ending stocks, the projected season-average farm corn price range was lowered 5 to 15 cents, to $4.05 to $4.75 per bushel. Average prices received by farmers, however, are expected to continue to be reported above prevailing cash bids well into early 2014, as some sales will reflect the higher forward prices available See MIELKE, pg. 5B

The calf’s average body core temperature is about 102 F, and its “thermal neutral zone” is 60 to 80 F. When the mercury drops below 60 F, calves start diverting energy away from growth and disease prevention. Here are some ways producers can combat the effects of cold stress. • Make sure mama is well nourished. That results in more warming fat and better quality colostrum for calves. • Feed more energy. Whether it’s feeding more milk replacer, increasing the dry matter content of the milk replacer or adding an extra feeding, calves need more energy in winter months. Adding grain to the calf’s diet, early on, also boosts energy. • Shield them from wind and drafts. Provide places where the calf can escape the wind, especially places they can lie down and expose less body surface. • Invest in warm bedding. Provide three inches of dry, comfortable bedding with good insulating properties. If bedding is adequate, the calf ’s feet should not be visible when lying down. • Heat milk and water. When calves drink cold

The Agricultural Marketing Service-surveyed U.S. average block price hit $1.8430, down 0.3 cent, and the barrels averaged $1.8106, down 0.1 cent. Cheese production was up the first week of December due to increased available milk supplies over the holiday, according to the USDA’s Dairy Market News. Demand for block cheese is strong as retailers look to restock shelves. Export demand is also good and some manufacturers report tight inventories. Cash butter saw a third week of decline, closing Friday at $1.57, down 7.5 cents on the week and 2.5 cents below a year ago. Seven cars traded hands this week. AMS butter averaged $1.6559, up 5.1 cents. Butter production is mixed across the country, according to the DMN, and demand is good to strong throughout most of the country, with increasing export demand in the Northeast and good international interest in the West. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed at $2.08/lb., up 2.25 cents on the week. Extra Grade closed at $2.0450, also up 2.25 cents.

MIELKE, from pg. 4B before harvesting. Although U.S. soybean production remained unchanged, 2013-14 supplies were raised 10 million bushels on stronger-than-expected early season imports. Soybean exports were increased 25 million bushels to 1.475 billion, reflecting record commitments (shipments plus outstanding sales) through November. Soybean crush was raised 5 million bushels to 1.690 billion, as strong foreign demand for soybean meal, led by the European Union and Southeast Asia, more than offsets a reduction in domestic soybean meal use. The U.S. season-average soybean price range for 2013-14 was projected higher, at $11.50 to $13.50/bu., up 35 cents on both ends. The

experienced small rural communities can explain their raw value. There were flags flying on Main Street, farm implement dealers dotting the town, people on the street waving at a total stranger in town (me), the baseball diamond on the edge of town — where dreams begin for the boys of summer; farmers out cutting hay and spraying crops; cows and sheep grazing peacefully in lush pastures, and the hills and valleys of the Minnesota prairie land. It made me think about those who first made their simple homes and livings out there, pioneering the way for the rest of us who farm the land today, a century or two later. I even saw a sign which read, “Barn Fresh Antiques and Collectibles,” and though I knew it was simply a country-sounding name for a business, I wondered if “barn fresh” would really be a good drawing card for the average knowing person. I’ve smelled a barn before. I’m pretty certain that my cousin, who felt it wasn’t her responsibility to do the dishes for our huge family as she stayed with us, wondered what we could possibly like about where we lived. The truth is that I didn’t appreciate it at the time, either. So many times we felt cut off from the world on the farm in that day. Yet I returned to farm life after college and we raised our family there. We didn’t have a red phone or monogrammed water cups for our children either — just a lot of work. But tossing bananas with their names on to them now and then really made life worth living when they were little. They, too, were really living the high life.
