If you rush the water from the soil to the river, higher levels of water (when drought isn’t a factor) wash the banks, flow over the banks and pick up soil and such which goes to the Mississippi. Imagine what a “normal” or high rain season can do. Pattern tiling is often bragged about by farmers to provide the “sponge effect.” Indeed it does. What does it mean? It means that when it rains, and the soil soaks up the water, as the water reaches the tiles in the field, the water is speedily rushed off to the drainage ditches. This, of course makes the soil able to hold more rain water (if it rains). This is a “sponge” so to speak. But it increases flow to the Minnesota River. We have a problem, and it is us! We don’t think. We don’t think about future generations who will need good soil to raise crops on. We waste money on temporary CRP fixes which are now ending in many places. Our local Soil and Water Conservation District promotes permanent conservation easements almost exclusively. They help. Some say “the bottom line is killing conservation.” To me the only purpose of a U.S. Department of Agriculture is twofold: 1) Provide conservation on the land; and 2) Provide the “safety net” for farmers through support of crop insurance.

Repealing of tax laws on Torkelson’s House agenda By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer He still claims farming as his No. 1 profession but politics have certainly become his No. 1 hobby. And when you are one of few “bonafide” farmers serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives perhaps “hobby” is a bit of a stretch. Like any hobby, the longer you stick around the more it grows. We’re talking about Paul Torkelson, Hanska-area farmer, first elected to the Minnesota House in 2008. His committee list now includes Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Policy, Agriculture and Rural Development and Legacy Funding. Torkelson heads back up to St. Paul Feb. 25 for the start of the 2014 Legislative Session but even prior to that official start he’s involved in various committee meetings in St. Paul and elsewhere. It’s sort of like getting a few of your ducks lined up before the gavel starts that first session, he said. So what are the “big ducks” for this 2014 session? “A strong effort to repeal some of the taxes that were imposed by the last legislative session is high on my agenda,” Torkelson said. Those targets would be the warehousing tax, the machinery repair tax and the telecommunications sales tax, he said. Because of a surplus in the state budget, Torkelson feels these taxes should and could be revoked. “But the one that’s not getting as

much attention as I think it should is the gift tax passed in the last session. Minnesota is one of only two states in the nation with a gift tax,” Torkelson said. This particular tax has a Paul Torkelson potentially big impact on farmers because if a farmer wants to “gift” part of his estate to someone (within the family or elsewhere) he has to pay a tax on the market value of that gift. In view of current land prices this gift tax could be huge. As a ranking Republican, he knows full well the challenge in getting this tax eliminated. “It seems the current majority wants to keep spending and increase the size of government every chance they get,” Torkelson said, adding that he and his Republican colleagues want to slow down spending. Because the 2014 session is essentially a bonding session (where/how state money should be allocated), Torkelson said his votes lean to infrastructure, especially transportation — roads, highways and bridges. “My bias is away from things like civic centers, but instead focus on the ‘nuts and bolts’ stuff that makes our economy work better.” After four to five years of accelerated growth in the agricultural industry but a definite slow down now in place how might this impact 2014 legislative activity? “A big challenge is educating other

people in the state assembly about the volatility of agriculture. I keep hearing about $7 corn. Well that’s history as we in agriculture know but our non-ag people seem to think agriculture is rich and ripe. So part of my pulpit in St. Paul is simply pointing out that agriculture today isn’t what it was. They need to understand how much risk there is in production agriculture today. That won’t be easy but that has to happen,” Torkelson said. So what’s likely in the November elections? Nothing in the Senate since it’s not an election year for senators, but the entire Minnesota House gets voted on. “I think we have a great opportunity to recapture the majority. I believe the general voting population likes balanced government. Right now government in Minnesota is unbalanced. The Democrats control both houses plus the governor’s chair. And with Democrats chairing every committee in both houses we’re

certainly not a balanced assembly,” Torkelson said. It would take a swing of only eight new Republican members in the House to recapture the majority, he said. As one of few House members actively engaged in production agriculture he acknowledges that occasionally his fellow politicians do ask him questions about agriculture. He reminds them that Minnesota’s relatively strong economic recovery from the 2008 debacle is because of the strength of Minnesota agriculture. “We have some very major players in the industry of agriculture with Minnesota headquarters. Politicians are getting smarter about the impact of agriculture in our total strength,” he said. Besides crop farming,Torkelson also contract finishes about 7,000 hogs per year. Torkelson was interviewed at the Jan 9 MN Ag Expo in Mankato. ❖

A Virginia corn grower set a new alltime high yield of 454 bushels per acre in the 2013 National Corn Growers Association corn yield contest. Additionally, four other entries surpassed the 400-bushel mark, all “southern states” growers. Credit advanced production techniques, informed grower practices and improved seed varieties, says an NCGA official mentioning that the National Corn Yield Contest, now in its 49th year, set a new participation record with 8,827 entries. “While this contest provides individual growers a chance for good-natured competition with their peers, it also advances farming as a whole,” said Don Glenn, chairman of the NCGA’s Production and Stewardship Action Team. “The techniques and practices contest

winners develop provide the basis for widely used advances that help farmers across the country excel in a variety of situations, including drought. The 18 winners in six production categories had verified yields averaging more than 354.6 bushels per acre, compared to the projected national average of 160.4 bushels per acre in 2013. The all-time high yield record of 454 bushels per acre was set by David Hula of Charles City, Va. The four additional entrants recording yields of more than 400 bushels per acre were: Johnny Hula of Charles City, Va.; Double “SA” Farms Inc. of Hart, Texas; Randy Dowdy of Valdosta, Ga.; and Dowdy Farms/Curtis Davis/Renato Lamas of Valdosta, Ga.

An upgrade to the popular FINBIN website allows producers to benchmark their farm or ranch finances against a peer group of truly comparable farms, improving producer access to farm financial databases. FINBIN is the farm financial benchmarking database maintained by the Center for Farm Financial Management, which is part of University of Minnesota Extension and the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. It includes financial data from 3,700 farms in 10 states. Anyone with access to the web and their financial information can benchmark his or her operation against a peer group of farms from FINBIN. “FINBIN has always allowed producers to create reports based on type of farm, size of farm, debt level and several other criteria,” said Dale Nordquist, CFFM associate director and Extension economist. “This new feature will allow producers to enter key financial measures then select a peer group of farms and quickly see how they stack up.” The comparable measures are based on the Farm Financial Standards Council’s Financial Guidelines for Agricultural Producers. If the producer’s accounting system calculates the FFSC measures, these can simply be entered on the web page. If not, they can enter a few summary financial totals and let the website calculate the ratios and measures. Tips are included to help producers enter the right information. What will producers get? The report will show where they compare in terms of the five key areas of financial management: liquidity, solvency, profitability, repayment capacity and financial efficiency. “It is not unusual to find a farm that is strong in terms of profitability but has a major weakness in liquidity,” Nordquist said. “That’s important for the farm manager to know. Should we see a financial downturn, liquidity is what will get you through the tough years.” The database is compiled from farms that use CFFM’s FINPACK software for farm business analysis. Each individual farm analysis goes through several layers of checks to verify accuracy. All reports are based on accrual farm income. The website will help calculate accrual measures for producers who do not have that information.

Farmers impacted by chemical, fuel tank regulations By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer New regulations for on-farm chemical and fuel storage seem to keep popping up. It’s becoming sort of a “buyer beware” environment out there, said Kurt Radermacher, a vendor at the recent MN Ag Expo in Mankato, Minn. Kurt Radermacher Radermacher was displaying what’s new in the world of fuel storage tanks, pumps and dispensing equipment and what’s happening pertaining to containment devices. He shared this latest requirement. “If you are storing more than 1,300 gallons of fuel you may soon need a Spill Protection Containment Plan which needs to be prepared by a professional engineer,” he said. “And those guys don’t come cheap. So this is a costly new proposal that will be filed by the Envirnmental Protection Agency.” In plain talk it means you’ve got to regulate your fuel tanks and you’ve got to register them with the state of Minnesota. “The logical consequence of this new legislation,” Radermacher said, “is that farmers are asking themselves, ‘Do I want to have this much fuel stored on my farm? Or can I get along with less than 1,300-gallon fuel storage to avoid this SPCP plan?’”

This 1,300-gallon category is only a Minnesota standard And of course so far. South Dakota, as more multifor example, has a fuel cars get 4,000-gallon threshold; Wisconsin is at sold, we’re 15,000 gallons. doing more “That seems more tanks and logical and more ecopumps just to nomical, too,” Raderhandle the E85 macher said. “The fuel also. larger your farm fuel containment, the more important that you have filed and installed a protection containment plan. But for a smaller operator needing only a 1,000-gallon tank, this SPCP seems a bit ridiculous.” He spoke of this as a bureaucratic process that could very well have additional changes before the end of the year. “Here at Ag Expo I’ve had at least 15 questions just this morning as to what’s going to happen with this regulation,” he said. “But as farming operations get bigger and tractors get bigger, bigger fuel containment is happening everywhere. And along with bigger tanks, fuel monitors are becoming standard also.” So what’s the most popular farm fuel tank these days? “A 1,000-gallon skid tank,” Radermacher said. “You pick it up with a fork lift and move it around to wherever you need it. It fits on most pickup beds so it’s mighty convenient for field refills. It’s economical. And you don’t need a special containment wall

around this tank because we sell it as a double-wall container.” Depending on the manufacturer, this size tank costs from $800 to $3,000. He mentioned five tank manufacturers that are providing sales and service in Minnesota. Thanks to “wet corn” last fall, he and others in his business have seen an uptick in Lp gas tanks. He said his industry is big enough to meet this sudden new demand but recognizes that it may have been a one-year phenomena triggered by last fall’s harvest season. But a bigger business for his firm is the growing interest in multi-fuel pumps at service stations across Minnesota. “Tremendous interest in E15 and it sounds like that ethanol fuel will soon get EPA approval. And of course as more multi-fuel cars get sold, we’re doing more tanks and pumps just to handle the E85 fuel also,” said Radermacher, who also noted a big push from farmers themselves for special ethanol fuel and biodiesel fuel storage tanks on their own farms. Stations adding E85 need to install stainless steel, nickel-planted tanks and dispensing pumps. “Basically this equipment is double the price of conventional fuel tanks and pumps but as this drive toward green energy continues, this entire fuel delivery and storage business will accelerate also,” Radermacher said. Radermacher’s firm is Pump and Meter Service Inc. at Hopkins, Minn. He may be reached at (612) 839-5131 or kradermacher@pump-meter.com. ❖


Covering the bases — What to include in a rental agreement • Correct legal names of all parties. Consider whether renter or owner is actually an individual, a Limited Liability Corporation, or other business entity. It could be that a husband and wife should both be listed and sign consistent with how they do business or with how an estate would be settled. • Correct legal description of the farm and a farm map. This should match the description on the deed. A farm map with the boundaries of the leased area highlighted clarifies the land included in the lease. If there are areas that are not to be included, they should be noted and highlighted. • Starting and ending dates. The starting date can be different than the date the agreement is signed. Is the lease a one-year lease that automatically renews unless either party gives written

benefits beyond a single crop year. • Irrigation permits and water use reporting. Permits should be obtained and water use reports should be taken care of based on existing laws and rules of the governing agency. The lease should state who is responsible consistent with existing policies. • Hunting privileges. It should be clearly stated whether the owner wishes to reserve all hunting privileges, or to what extent a renter has something to say about hunting. I’ve had calls where the owner didn’t mind giving the renter permission to hunt, but did not appreciate all the renter’s friends and cousins coming to hunt also. There are other things that might be considered including things like cutting firewood, taking a large boulder home for landscaping, what’s done with straw or crop residues and other issues related to the care of the land and the business relationship. Talk about anything that becomes a question. Putting your commitments to each other in writing is usually a good business practice. Check with an attorney you have confidence in, if you want to be clear about legalities.

notice by a pre-determined date, or does it have a definite ending date? It might be better to have a specified beginning and ending date to avoid confusion. When does the renter have access to the property? Access could be different than starting and ending dates. • Rent. Along with the amount, when and how will the rent be paid? I suggest people specify when rent is due by a date rather by something like “before planting starts” or “before harvest starts.” What process will be followed if rent is not paid on time? • Conflict resolution. If the lease is silent on this topic, the only method could be through attorneys. The lease can require that differences be settled by mediation or binding arbitration or some other process. • Facilities owner provides. In some cases this might include the use of buildings for storage of equipment or grain, maybe irrigation wells and equipment. Be clear about how maintenance decisions will be made and handled. • Installation of capital improvements. As landowners retire from active farming, a renter might be installing tiling or irrigation or making other improvements. In these situations, the lease should define how these decisions are made and handled and what happens if the lease is terminated, or property ownership changes. There might be provisions related to recovering operator investments lime or manure of other inputs that might have

We appreciated the opportunity to work with Regional Extension Educator Dave Bau recently on land rental workshops in Stearns, Benton, Morrison and Todd counties. We also appreciated the questions and discussion offered by those who attended. This sparked my interest in a recent Michigan State University article that suggested nine categories of information that should be covered in a lease or rental agreement. A written lease agreement can be as simple as identifying the land owner and the renter, a description of the land rented and outlined on a map or Farm Service Agency aerial photo, the starting and ending date for the agreement, what the rent is and how and when it is paid, and signatures of the owner and renter. The MSU article outlined other considerations that can be useful.

Ambitious Minnesota FFA’er wins $1,000 grant On Jan. 6 the young man got word that he had won a grant from the National FFA Foundation, the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization. What does Schultz intend to do with the money? Grow his beef business on his parents’ farm. He has both a Red Angus and a Black Angus cow. Each cow has provided a calf for his growing beef business. “I’ll be using the money to buy a mineral feeder and a hay-feeder saver,” Schultz said in a telephone interview with The Land.

Other winners from Iowa and Minnesota are Bryce Scott, Prairie Valley, Iowa; T.J. Graves, Brainerd, Minn.; Sarah Manderfeld, Medford, Minn.; and Joe Ramstad, Forest Lake, Minn. With two purebred cows and two calves already the foundation of his beef business, young Schultz’s choice of

how to “invest” his grant money was pretty obvious. Selling breeding stock is part of his business ambition. “I plan on selling my bull calf as a breeder bull,” he said. His older sister, Madeline, has three cows; younger brother, Cal, has one cow. Parents Jeff (a commodity broker) and Kathryn (a hair stylist) pretty much leave the livestock business in the hands of their children, but livestock are in the family’s background. Schultz said one of his granddads was a dairy farmer; the other was a Duroc hog farmer who also raised beef cattle. Getting involved in the livestock business came with a bit of a parental challenge. Schultz said his dad told him and his siblings, “that if we want to raise livestock, we also have to learn how to judge livestock.” Schultz actually attends school at Faribault High School, but FHS does not offer an agriculture program, so he heads south a few miles to be a member of the FFA chapter at Medford, a bustling agriculture education program with two instructors.

The young man certainly has ambition. He’s a 220-pound junior varsity wrestler on the Faribault High School squad; he started wrestling in the third grade. He intends to go to college

Why did he get involved in FFA? Schultz said FFA gives him more chances to show beef cattle and goats. “Plus, I’m learning lots more about agriculture and how big an industry it really is,” he said. “I think more kids should take FFA and learn something about ag. Even planting a few flowers is ag; planting anything is being a farmer.” Schultz was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide. The National FFA organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training. Currently 570,678 student members nationwide, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, are enrolled in FFA through 7,570 local FFA chapters. For more information, log on to www.FFA.org. ❖

The Department of Natural Resources is developing guidelines to improve the habitat for pollinating insects that are so important to agriculture. In a report to the state Legislature Jan. 15 the Department of Agriculture was to outline its plan to study the use of a popular insecticide linked to bee deaths.

agriculture officials to develop a process for reviewing the safety of widely used neonicotinoid insecticides, which are absorbed by plant roots, leaves and pollen. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated that more than a third of the nation’s honey bee population has died in the last several years. Minnesota Public Radio — http://bit.ly/1m4VvMH — said the bees are suffering from persistent disease problems and effects of the insecticides.

What he won is referred to as an Supervised Agricultural Experience Grant, designed to help FFA members create and enhance their SAE, a requirement to be an FFA member. To satisfy SAE requirements, FFA members must create and operate an agriculture-related business, work at an agriculture-related business or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion he or she must submit a comprehensive report regarding the career development experience.

I think more kids should take FFA and learn something about ag. Even planting a few flowers is ag; planting anything is being a farmer.

Schultz is already a two-year veteran showing market goats at the Minnesota State Fair. You qualify for the State Fair by first being a “blue ribbon” winner at your county fair. His second year he won a reserve champion ribbon with his goat. He also did the paperwork to be eligible in the junior show to win a heifer at the annual Minnesota Beef Expo. He earned the Red Angus heifer that has since produced a new heifer calf.

And they were crossing the me remember one of the times when road. And coming out of our farm yard. our hogs got out. Our sons’ cows were out. Good Lord, they were everywhere — inside other buildings, running around Among other thoughts, I was think-

in the grove and on the road, rooting things up around the house yard, and making friends with our goat, which worried me a little. It was a regular four-alarm emergency on about 80 legs. I wondered if we owed our neighbors some money that we forgot about, or if we’d fed them once too many times out of our kitchen ... and this was their revenge. But it didn’t matter — how were we going to get this swarm of pigs penned up? Soon came the sound that was like music to my ears. Our children came out from behind the machine shed with the four-wheelers, ready for action. And what a calamity it was. There were four-wheelers going in as many directions as there were pigs. It only takes one time of chasing hogs on foot to realize the value of a fourwheeler — horsepower behind four wheels chasing four legs — finally, a fair challenge. Dare I say, you could almost bully them back into their pens if your hog-chasing, bully-driving skills were polished up and ready to go. It’s like sweet victory if you’ve ever skidded to a stop in greasy hog dung and landed on your backside, or been pooped on while guiding sows back to their babies. Pity that more people can’t enjoy this farm life. During the process the garden was trampled, the rabbit cage was tipped over by a hog headed anywhere else but there, the sidewalk in front of our house sported suspicious-looking drop-

pings that we knew didn’t come from any mouse we’d ever met. Hog calling sounds saturated the air, along with a blend of four-wheeler motors and the skidding of those tires in the gravel as the hogs stopped to do a 180. Eventually the hogs all got back into the pen, with the only casualty being our grumpy, geriatric bunny who used to bite. Both he and my garden were later eulogized. The hogs were tired but back home where they belonged, and our then-middleschool-aged children were high on a hogchasing buzz that no amount of energy drink could match. And they were glazed in dirt — a farm kid’s badge of honor. So when I saw those cows out that Sunday I called my husband who was at another farm. He came immediately and drove them back slowly in his pickup from his way, and I drove them from the opposite direction in the car. Together we guided them back into the yard, where a gate had been left open. Barn doors and cattle gates can alter a farmer’s moods more effectively than Prozac — and it’s free. Well, sort of. We didn’t bask in the glow of completing the job with donut-wielding four wheelers, but I didn’t even have to change out of my church clothes or lose my religion doing it. Hallelujah.

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles Grain Angles Corn takes steps Cattle market has The importance backwards been en fuego of DDGs The recent Chinese rejection of corn and dried distillers grains sparked the interest of many in the agriculture industry. In December, there were reports of 2,000 metric tons of U.S. distillers rejected by Chinese officials due to an unapproved insect resistant genetic trait (MIR162). Following this rejection, DDGs fell to the lowest level in over two years, before rebounding because of the news that China was again approving additional U.S. exports of distillers grains. There has been much uncertainty on whether additional shipments of DDGs would be rejected like the much larger KURT LENSING scale of rejections in corn. At the AgStar Assistant VP time this column is being written, and Industry Specialist Waite Park, Minn. I have not heard of additional rejections. In this column, I’d like to take a look at how important DDGs are both in domestic feed usage and as an exported agricultural commodity. Just over 30 percent of each bushel of corn used in the dry mill ethanol production produces DDGs. The rapid expansion experienced by the ethanol industry over the past decade has produced a vastly economical and available mid-protein animal feed. To give you an idea of how fast the industry has grown, according to the Renewable Fuel Associations website, in 2013 there were 3.10 billion gallons of ethanol capacity and in January of 2013 there were 14.71 billion gallons of ethanol capacity in the United States. Approximately one quarter, or 10 million shorttons, of DDGs produced here in the United States

Cattle and hog prices seem to be moving in opposite directions as of late. While cattle prices are at alltime highs, hog prices are struggling to stay above the $80 per hundredweight level. It is questionable how long this trend of opposite directions can last. The cattle market has been on fire as the price of cattle have moved above the $140/cwt. level basis the Midwest for a new alltime high. The tighter supplies and the packers scrambling to gain control of these tight inventories are the story behind this move. The beef cutouts have also moved to their highest levels ever as packJOE TEALE Broker ers try to maintain margin. Great Plains Commodity The only thing not moving to Afton, Minn. all-time highs is the volume of boxed beef sold. As beef prices have risen so has the volume in the boxed trade slowed. This shows consumer resistance to higher prices which could ultimately be the fatal blow to the rally in prices. How far this rally can extend is anyone’s guess at this point, but a high mark will be set in the near future. The cattle market reminds one of other markets that have topped in the past, such as the corn market, the gold market and so forth. Each can be described as a bubble market — and eventually the bubble bursts. As mentioned before, with the current economic atmosphere, and the new taxes being imposed, domestic disposable income will likely shrink even further and as a result high prices will come under fire. Therefore, producers should be cognizant of these

The following market analysis is for the week ending Jan. 17. CORN — After last week’s post-U.S. Department of Agriculture report explosion higher, corn stairstepped lower throughout the week to give back last week’s gains. News was scarce as we headed into a three-day holiday weekend. March corn was down 8 3/4 cents to settle at $4.24 for the week and December was off 9 1/4 cents at $4.49 per bushel. Weekly export sales were better than expected at 32.2 million bushels of old crop, but nothing for new crop. This was the secondlargest weekly number in seven PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. weeks. We need to sell 10.3 milSt. Paul lion per week to hit the yearly projection of 1.45 billion bushels. We have 80 percent of the USDA export forecast already committed. Egypt showed up as buyer of 204,000 metric tons of U.S. corn late in the week after a cancellation of 126,000 mt of corn to unknown was announced earlier in the week. China bought 230,000 mt of U.S. sorghum this week. Southern Argentina is the hot spot to watch in South America. They have been experiencing a hot, dry spell, but rains were in the forecast for the week of Jan. 20. Michael Cordonnier last week lowered his Argentine corn production estimate to 22.5 million mt. The USDA is at 25 mmt. Informa Economics updated their 2014 acreage numbers this week. Their new number of 93.3 million planted acres is up 1.5 million from their previous 91.8 million acre estimate.

South American weather provides no bullishness NYSTROM, from pg. 17 lion planted acres. Using a yield of 163 bushels per acre, or 4.2 bu./acre higher than last year, they project a crop of 13.985 billion bushels. This is 60 million bushels greater than the 2013 crop. Weekly ethanol production suffered from the arctic vortex last week, down 51,000 barrels per day to 868,000 barrels per pay. Stocks were slightly lower at 16.1 million barrels. OUTLOOK: Let’s be realistic — last week’s lowering of the 2013-14 carryout by 161 million bushels to 1.631 billion bushels was a surprise. However, a 1.6-billion-bushel carryout is still double last year’s carryout. Unless we have trouble planting this spring or South American weather problems continue, it will be a fight to maintain corn rallies. That said, we will see rallies, but they should be viewed as selling opportunities with what we currently see. March corn’s range is from $4.20 to $4.40 per bushel, with the next level of support at the contract low of $4.06 1/4 per bushel.

SOYBEANS — South American weather didn’t provide any bullishness to the market this week, but on-going demand did. The USDA reported new sales in seven out of the last nine trading sessions. Some traders are expecting that China will eventually begin to cancel or switch to other origins, soybeans that they have bought from the United States. That has not yet happened to any significant degree; they just keep buying. Weekly exports were impressive at 25.8 million bushels for old crop and 19.3 million bushels for new crop. We have already surpassed the USDA export forecast for the year of 1.495 billion bushels with total commitments standing at 1.523 billion bushels. Record crush demand in December was acknowledged when the National Oilseed Processors Association announced their December crush at 165.4 million bushels. The trade was expecting 163.9 million bushels. This surpasses the previous record of 164.4 million bushels in December 2009.

TEALE, from pg. 17 market conditions and use caution in dealing in the cattle market. But above all, protect inventories when given the opportunity. The hog market has been struggling most of the fall months and is now continuing that struggling into the winter. Inventories of hogs and pork seem to be adequate to meet current demand for pork, both domestic and foreign. The latest U.S. Department of Agriculture hog reports indicated a small decline in herd size and pork in storage a little smaller than anticipated. This has given some hope that

because of the good demand for pork, prices may begin to stabilize. Because of a struggling economy and higher taxes which could cause a shrinking disposable income, pork may be the best value in the meat complex. Demand will be the key to the hog market in the first quarter of the year. If demand can stay strong for pork products, then there is opportunity for hog prices to rebound. Given the premiums in the deferred hog futures, producers should use these premiums to their advantage provided it meets their marketing scheme. ❖

LENSING, from pg. 17 are exported with the remaining 75 percent of DDGs being domestically fed primarily to beef, dairy cattle and swine. Most analysts will agree that growth in the ethanol industry will be limited over the coming years. The rate of growth will be determined by factors such as agricultural policy, energy prices and demand for protein products. I would expect the recent rejections to be limited, as developing countries such as China continue to demand economical feedstuffs. Although there are

challenges in the production of DDGs such as the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to lower mandates on starch-based ethanol, along with rejections of DDGs by the Chinese, I expect the ethanol industry to remain viable and profitable in producing energy and feed for many years to come.

Informa Economics’ refreshed acreage numbers were released this week. They pegged 2014 planted soybean acreage at a record 81.3 million acres. This is up 600,000 from their previous estimate of 81.9 million acres, but 4.7 million acres or 6 percent higher than in 2013. Figuring a yield of 44.5 bu./acre, up 1.2 bu./acre from last year, the crop would equate to 3.572 billion bushels. This is a year-on-year increase of 283 million bushels. It was reported this week that a major global soybean crusher was closing one of their Brazilian crush plants. A change in tax laws makes it even more favorable to export raw soybeans rather than soy products. AgroConsult raised their Brazilian bean production estimate from 90.7 mmt to 91.6 mmt. The USDA’s latest forecast was 89.0 mmt. Brazil’s weather has been non-threatening to crops; the area to watch is southern Argentina. Argentina has been hot and dry, but rain is in the forecast. OUTLOOK: March soybeans rallied 38 cents higher this week to close at $13.16 1/2 and the November contract gained 25

MARKETING

1/4 cents to close at $11.25 per bushel. A case can be made for further upside for old crop soybeans; strong global demand (export and domestic crush) and a South American crop that isn’t yet harvested, or gotten to port. Year-on-year ending stocks are stagnant at 150 million bushels, just 9 million bushels higher than last year. Soybeans could benefit to the upside if any disruptions occur and China takes all the soybeans they have bought. But looking at new crop, if we plant an additional 4 million to 5 million acres to beans this spring, any extended rallies may be gifts. March soybeans first level of support is $12.90, then $12.68; resistance is $13.40 to $13.50 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending Jan. 17: Minneapolis and Kansas City wheat each fell 2 3/4 cents this week, while Chicago dropped 5 1/2 cents. February crude oil was $1.65 higher at $94.37 this week, ultralow-sulfur diesel gained 8 1/4 cents, gasoline declined nearly a nickel and natural gas rallied 27 1/4 cents.

Corn-after-corn management tips In recent years, high corn prices prompted many growers to increase the proportion of corn acres in their operations. However, DuPont Pioneer agronomists say a continuous corn management system presents several challenges. Below are some management tips to keep in mind when going with a cornon-corn production system. • Fields with good tilth and waterholding capacity are ideal for corn-oncorn. The yield penalty for this production system is much lower in high-yield environments. • Hybrid selection is critical when growing corn after corn. Look for scores on stress emergence, high residue suitability, disease resistance, drought tolerance and stalk and root strength. • High corn residues can result in cooler, wetter soils at planting, higher disease and insect levels, nitrogen tieup and planting challenges. Minimiz-

ing residue and using foliar fungicides helps manage these environmental conditions. • Research has shown that yield reductions for continuous versus rotated corn are often greater in stress years, probably due to a reduced root system. Managing rootworms and preventing compaction can help diminish this problem. • More nitrogen will likely be needed when producing corn after corn versus corn after soybeans. Corn residues tie up nitrogen during the decomposition process. • Planting corn into fields with soybean stubble first in spring allows wetter continuous-corn ground time to dry. This can reduce sidewall compaction that limits root growth and leads to uneven stands.

actual planted crop acres, which was an option in the Senate version of the new farm bill. It is not known if producers will be given an opportunity to update their crop base acres under a new farm bill. It is anticipated that the ARC program would utilize county-based five-year “Olympic” average crop yields, with payments on 80 percent of crop base acres when using county yields. The ARC benchmark revenue will likely be the “Olympic” average county yield times the five-year “Olympic” average national average price for a commodity, with the revenue guarantee being set at 85 percent (0.85) of the benchmark revenue. ARC payments would be made when the actual revenue in a crop year falls below the revenue guarantee, up to a maximum of 10 percent of the benchmark revenue. The actual revenue would be the county yield times the 12-month national average price for the crop marketing year. There will likely be a separate Stacked Income Protection program for cotton producers, which will likely include a transition direct payment for the 2014 crop year. The proposed PLC program will likely utilize the fixed crop reference prices for the five-year farm bill, which were established in the U.S. House version of the new farm bill. The PLC reference prices would likely be $3.70 per bushel for corn, $8.40/bu. for soybeans, and $5.50/bu. for wheat.

No supporters of another farm bill extension PROGRAMS, from pg, 19 opportunity to update payment yields from current levels up to 90 percent of the five-year “Olympic” average farm yields for a specific crop from 2008-12. PLC payment acres would likely be based on 85 percent of the current year of the farm unit’s base acres for a given crop. It appears that the federal crop insurance program will likely remain largely intact with the new farm bill, with some minor adjustments and possible enhancements. Most likely producers will have the opportunity to opt for new Supplemental Crop Option insurance coverage, which would allow up to 90 percent insurance coverage, with some added premium paid by the farmer. The current maximum insurance coverage level is 85 percent of crop APH yield times the crop insurance price for a year. The SCO program will likely not be implemented until the 2015 crop year. It appears that future crop insurance participation will require conservation compliance by participating farmers, similar to participation in other government farm programs. Crop insurance programs have come under some criticism in recent months, due to the large federal cost for the program and some eligibility requirements. The federal government subsidizes about 62 percent of the annual cost of crop insurance premiums to producers, with the farmer paying the balance. The federal government also subsidizes large crop insurance losses, such as with the 2012

drought. Even beyond the new farm bill, there will likely be further efforts to revise crop insurance programs for the future.

There are some other provisions yet to be worked out in the conference committee for the new farm bill, including possible modifications to the Country of Origin Labeling legislation, finalizing Many activist groups and some members of Conpayment limits, revised definitions of “actively gress are pushing for changes in the federal crop engaged in farming” and a proposal to prevent states insurance program.

If there is another extension of the most recent farm bill, there would likely be a continuation of a reduced level of direct payments, which will be eliminated by a new farm bill. An extension would also continue the Average Crop Revenue program for 2014, which would likely be quite favorable for corn and soybean production, and could lead to increased enrollment in ACRE, as well as significant increases in federal expenditures. Farmers can rest assured that there will likely be some type of farm program in place for the 2014 crop year, whether it is a new commodity program under a new farm bill, or continued programs under the last farm bill. Crop insurance programs and alternatives will remain largely the same for 2014, regardless of what happens with the new farm bill. Given the tight margins in crop production for 2014, it is extremely important for producers to closely analyze their crop insurance alternatives for the coming year, before the March 15 enrollment deadline.

The five requests were on 533,519 pounds of butter and 707,684 pounds of Cheddar, Gouda and Monterey Jack cheese to customers in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. The product will be delivered through June, will go to three countries, and are the equivalent of 18.57 million pounds of milk on a milkfat basis. ■ Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $2.0975, up 2.75 cents and Extra Grade closed at $2.08, unchanged from last week.

Arctic air masses cool down milk production MIELKE, from pg. 21 der averaged $2.0150, up 1.1 cent, and dry whey averaged 59.28 cents, down 0.5 cent. ■ The CME will suspend trading of Extra Grade as of Jan. 27. Dryer praised the move, saying it “reduces the number of price points on powder, making it easier for hedging.” ■ Meanwhile, the USDA reduced its 2013 milk production estimate in its latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report, based on recent milk production data. It now pegs output at 201.3 billion pounds, down 300 million pounds from last month’s report, and compares to 200.3 billion in 2012. The forecast for 2014 was raised as improving returns are expected to support a more rapid increase in output per cow. Output is projected at 205.6 billion pounds, up 300 million pounds from last month’s estimate.

■ Dairy product and milk prices for 2013 were adjusted to reflect December data. Cheese, butter and nonfat dry milk prices for 2014 were raised as export and domestic demand are expected to strengthen, but the forecast for dry whey was unchanged. The Class III milk price was raised due to the higher cheese prices and the Class IV price forecast reflects higher butter and NDM prices. Look for the Class III price to average $17.80 to $18.60/cwt., up from the $17.05 to $17.85 expected a month ago, and compares to $17.99 in 2013, $17.44 in 2012 and $18.37 in 2011. The 2014 Class IV price was projected at $19.80 to $20.70, up 80 cents on both ends from last month’s estimate, and compares to $19.05 in 2013, $16.01 in 2012 and $19.04 in 2011. ■ The arctic air mass that covered the Upper Midwest and much of the Northeast sent temperatures and wind chills 25 to 50 degrees below zero, the DMN

said. Milk production declined in those areas while output in other regions is trending higher along the typical seasonal trend. Class I demand is building as most educational institutions across the country have resumed classes. California’s February Class I milk

price is $23.11/cwt. for the north and $23.38 for the south. Both are up 27 cents from January and are $3.28 above February 2013. The federal order Class I base price is announced by the USDA on Jan. 23. See MIELKE, pg. 23


Boehner threat doesn’t allow vote on farm bill with DMSP committee included the DSA language in the package that they were planning to present to the full conference. Despite the long-standing opposition to this plan from ... Boehner, we were confident we had the votes in the conference committee to defeat any amendment to strike the market stabilization program. “Unfortunately, the Speaker’s threat that he would not allow a vote on a farm bill containing the DMSP has effectively served to kill our proposal within the committee.” The NMPF said it is now engaged in discussions with agriculture committee staff on an alternative approach to creating a dairy safety net that would contain inducements to help achieve a supplydemand balance and prevent catastrophic milk price collapses like we experienced in 2009. “At this point,” the NMPF said, “it is conceivable that an alternative mechanism could be developed, relying upon adjustments to the program’s margin insurance payout structure and participant premium rates, among other options. Any such approach must still offer an effective risk management tool to farmers, while containing suitable incentives to program enrollees to achieve cost controls. As always, the devil is in the details, and we will not support any program that does not effectively address the needs of our members throughout the United States.” Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

“In 2004 Wisconsin was at about 22 billion pounds of milk, in 2013 we’ll be very close to 28 billion pounds and has been increasing milk production at the rate of about 600 million pounds a year, which is a phenomenal rate of increase.” Jesse credits enlargement of dairy farms, modernization and more milk produced per farm, but says he’s seeing a lot of strength in the smaller dairy operations. “We’re not losing dairy farms nearly as rapidly as we did in the 1980s and the 1990s. ... Smaller operations have found ways to remain profitable through grazing, organic and value-added kinds of products tied to grazing. ... There are a lot of opportunities” but he also sees challenges, the biggest one being water — quantity as well as quality. ■ In dairy politics, several dairy producer groups urged farm bill conferees to oppose supply management provisions in the farm bill dairy title, known as the Dairy Market Stabilization Program. A letter to that effect was signed by the Wisconsin Dairy Business Association, California Dairies Inc., National All Jersey, the Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative, the ... it is conceivable Dairy Policy Action that an alternative Coalition, the mechanism could be Northeast Dairy Producers Associadeveloped, relying tion, the Kentucky upon adjustments to Dairy Development the program’s marCouncil and the gin insurance payout WIB Agri-Business structure and particiCoalition. pant premium rates, But, it’s a moot among other point. House Speaker John options. Boehner’s threat — NMPF press release that he would not allow a vote on a farm bill containing supply management effectively killed the National Milk Producers Federation’s inspired DMSP. Reading the handwriting on the Hill, the NMPF issued a press release Thursday stating that “during the past four years that NMPF has worked to revise federal dairy policy, we have evaluated a variety of proposals against two key criteria: 1) does it provide an effective safety net for all of the nation’s dairy farmers?; and 2) does it protect taxpayers from the possibility of excessive program costs through the use of suitable incentives for those enrolled in the program?” It stated that “the resulting Dairy Security Act measure, contained in the farm bills approved by the House and Senate agriculture committees in 2012 and again in 2013, is a loss-prevention margin insurance program that meets those objectives.” “We were initially heartened that the four bipartisan leaders of the House-Senate farm bill conference

MIELKE, from pg. 22 While we’re in California, the DMN reported that feed and operational costs are weighing on producer margins in the nation’s No. 1 milk producer. The lack of snow and moisture in California is raising concerns of strengthening drought and water scarcity. One of the factors behind the tight margins would be milk prices. California’s Milk Producers Council reports that California’s Class 4b price (for milk sold to the state’s cheese manufacturers) averaged $1.57/cwt. below the federal order Class III price (the benchmark price for milk sold to cheese manufacturers around the country). The MPC said “that puts the ‘California Discount’ at about $285 million for the year.” The article added that “given the serious efforts currently under way to move forward with a USDA petition for a California federal order, there is little point in expanding this article but addresses concerns voiced by one of its members regarding what it termed a ‘very interesting and disturbing comparison’.” It discusses the California quota system, making the point that it is a “valuable component of the industry” and “represents a significant amount of asset value for many of our state’s dairy families that needs to be protected.” It states that the collective underlying asset value of all California quota is reported at about $915 million, and recently as high as $1.075 billion. It adds that, since January 2010, the California Class 4b price has averaged $1.68/cwt. below the federal order Class III price, representing a “California Discount” of more than $1.2 billion, and “larger than the underlying asset value of entire California quota program.” Details are posted at www.milkproducerscouncil.org/friday_updates.htm. ■ Meanwhile, the No. 2 milk producer, Wisconsin is seeing its dairy industry revitalized. Ed Jesse, professor emeritus in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, in a recent online interview, pointed out that Wisconsin peaked in milk output around 1988 at about 25 billion pounds and, over the next 16 years slowly declined. “We ended 2004 at about 22 billion pounds, Jesse said. “We lost 3 billion pounds of milk and there was concern that we could be weakening the industry substantially. And a lot of efforts, dating way back to the mid-’80s, tried to start initiatives that would bring the industry back to its previous levels or beyond.” Things turned around abruptly in 2005, he said.

Grassland preservation a DNR future priority Once upon a time, Minnesota was blessed with a wide variety of habitats ranging from dense forests to wide open, grass-covered prairies. It’s really not too hard nowadays to find a forest. But it’s getting increasingly difficult to find a parcel of prairie grass. THE OUTDOORS Minnesota Department of By John Cross Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr told a standing-room-only crowd at the opening session of the DNR’s annual two-day Roundtable meeting in Bloomington Jan. 10 that grassland preservation and restoration are going to be a major focus for his agency for years to come. Landwehr said to stakeholders, DNR staff and a handful of lawmakers that of the 18 million acres of native prairie that once covered most of western and southern Minnesota, only about 2 percent still remain. In addition, the continued loss of Conservation Reserve Program acres as contracts expire have resulted in an unprecedented loss of grassland habitat for game species like deer, pheasant, ducks and many other non-game species in farmland areas. “In a good year, we manage to gain from 20,000 to 40,000 acres of grasslands in areas like WMAs, WPAs,” Landwehr said. “However, at the same time we’re also losing 150,000 acres of CRP so even with our best efforts, we’re losing 100,000 acres. “You can see the direction it’s going and it’s not the right direction,” he said. That view was bolstered by a presentation given by Kurt Forman, a private land coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in North Dakota and

percent of the continent’s ducks are produced there. Forman said the rush to plow up the Missouri Coteau of the North Dakota and South Dakota has been spurred by high commodity prices and a federal crop insurance program that removes much of the risk for landowners who choose to convert land more suitable to livestock grazing to more profitable cropland. To that end, Forman said the USFW has begun to work to provide incentives for family ranchers to keep livestock operations viable instead of turning to potentially more lucrative row crops. Landwehr said that the preservation and expansion of grasslands in Minnesota John Cross/Mankato Free Press ultimately will come down to money.

BACK ROADS, from pg. 48 in 1987. Of the 100 known sites, the majority are in the Des Moines River Valley of southwestern Minnesota and the nearby glacial lake region on northwest Iowa. The dirt trails are not well-marked, but that is OK as they blend in well with the natural beauty of the woods and prairie. My one word of advice is don’t get caught hiking in the dark; you may find yourself lost in this relatively small wooded area. The park is open year-round for hiking and snowmobiling. In addition to the hiking trails, it has 3.5 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Snowshoeing is also permitted. The campground is closed for the winter season, but its campsites are available on a first-come, firstserved basis.

EXPORTS, from pg. 27 medium-term, say the next two to five years. Will they be able to grow their own dairy industry fast enough so they may not need us anymore? I don’t think we will see stabilization in the total demand for animal proteins in China. The question will be where that demand will come from. Q: Who are the other suppliers into China’s market? A: Australia and New Zealand are both big players of dairy exports, especially because of their close proximity to Southeast Asia. Seems like both these countries are finding ways to reduce the number of sheep in their pastures and increase the number of cows, so for the foreseeable future these two countries will be major players in meeting the increased demands for dairy products in these markets. Also the European Union is abolishing quotas on milk production in March 2015, and we expect they will refocus on exports and compete head-to-head with us for export markets. Q: How long have European dairy farmers lived with production quotas? A: Since 1984. Both Europe and the United States had dairy surpluses in the 1980s. We went the route of “whole herd” buyouts; Europe went the route of production controls for each dairy farmer. Q: Why wasn’t there a production quota program for U.S. dairy farmers? A: It was not even proposed here. The logic being that the time-honored supply-and-demand argument was still the best route. Programs have been proposed for stabilizing milk production here in America and we refer to these as supply management. But that’s really mixing apples and oranges. Q: With beef prices currently strong, some dairy farmers are selling off their replacement heifers as dairy beef. Is that impacting dairy cow numbers? A: I think replacement numbers are still strong. With increased use of sexed semen we haven’t really created a bottleneck in replacement heifers for a few years now. And I do not see that as a constraint at this point. For the next 12 months I see more downside risk than upside potential for milk prices, and that is likely because generally after a year with little or no increase in milk yield per cow data (which occurred in the 2012-13 production year) the next year it will compensate. So we could easily see a 350pound-per-cow increase in milk yield for 2014. Feed prices and drought across many areas this season are the reason for zero increase in milk yield per cow. Q: What areas of the United States have growth in dairy numbers? A: Now growth is in the Midwest. One of the champions in dairy growth is Kansas. That surprises many. Their current numbers are still only 134,000 cows so they are not nearly as large as Minnesota, but they are growing quite fast with year-to-year growth pushing 10 percent the past few years. Why Kansas? See EXPORTS, pg. 29


Official identification required for livestock at exhibitions The Minnesota Board of Animal Health reminds exhibitors of livestock that animals entering all classes of exhibition need to be officially identified. The BAH is offering free official ear tags to help exhibitors meet the requirement. The BAH rules require official identification of all exhibition animals except for swine entering slaughter classes and water fowl. Exhibitors are responsible for officially identifying their animals before bringing them to the fair. Additionally, anyone placing official ID in livestock must keep records. These rules provide better protection of animals and people at the fair by enabling the Board to more quickly locate potentially affected ani-

mals during a disease event. “Showing livestock at the fair is a great learning opportunity,” said Beth Thompson, senior veterinarian at the BAH. “By keeping records and bringing your animal to the fair with official ID, you are doing your part to make this year’s exhibition season run smoothly.” The BAH has coordinated efforts with University of Minnesota Extension to provide free ear tags to 4-H exhibitors. Individuals showing animals through the 4-H program should contact their local Extension office for more information.

about 1.4 million in Wisconsin. California is still No. 1, with Wisconsin second, New York third, Idaho fourth, Pennsylvania fifth, and then Minnesota. Q: Without a new farm bill, does reverting to the 1949 permanent law governing farm prices make any sense? A: (Chuckling) When did logic and common sense have anything to do with what happens in Washington, D.C.? ... We will start the new year without a new farm bill but instead just another extension. But at this point who knows. Perhaps for a brief period of time we technically would be under the rules of the old price regime but the U.S. Department of Agriculture certainly is not going to issue the calls for buying milk that would double the price of milk at the grocery store.

In conclusion, yes, securing dairy exports will continue to be a battle but a battle that the U.S. dairy industry can win. ❖

Robotic systems a lifestyle change, rather than profit investment EXPORTS, from pg. 28 It’s an animal-friendly environment. Western Kansas is close to a major dairy processing plant being built in Colorado. And Kansas is close to feed; in fact, Kansas farmers grow lots of feed. We recently ran a survey asking processors what are the factors they consider in relocating or expanding. It wasn’t milk price, it wasn’t family proximity, it wasn’t the market orders — it was feed price, meaning the availability of local forages and the ability to secure their own feed. Q: Is robotics making the dairy profession more appealing to younger people? A: I am somewhat optimistic that with a new robotic manufacturing plant coming online in Pella, Iowa, and a larger uptake from dairy producers, we will see the price of robots go down another 10 or 15 percent. Once that happens, they will be profitable and they will become an investment that can attract younger people back into dairying. At this point robotic systems are more a lifestyle change than they are a profitable, economic investment. Today they are about break-even investments. Q: What are the current cow numbers? A: About 465,000 in Minnesota;

MMPA’s Lunemann: ‘The markets are working’

Not to say the price of milk, however, could be the a rib eye from a Holstein would taste new “safety net” for dairy farmers, much like a rib eye from a Black Lunemann said. Perhaps the logic of Angus, but he did venture dairy beef is such a program is that it “self adjusts” as feed costs and milk prices fluctuate. See LUNEMANN, pg. 31


Permitting often ‘sticking point’ between MPCA, MMPA tion of exactly what you are looking for in every future generation of a given blood line. It used to be that bull calves were born; then they had to be raised; then their semen had to be collected and sampled; then cows had to be bred; daughters had to be born; then these daughters milked for a year or two to determine if that was a good bull or not. Today, nearly every bull used on the Lunemann farm is selected through genomic testing. Does genomic testing ,with predictable genetics at your fingertips, cost a bunch more? Just the opposite. Costs to operate a bull stud are much less than they used to be because they’re raising considerably fewer bulls. ABS, Genex and Select Sires dominate the business these days, Lunemann said. He also leans pro-tech when it comes to robotics in the dairy industry. “I do think robotic units can be the

salvation of many small- to mediumsized dairy farms,” Lunemann said, “especially where the dairy farmer is 55-plus years of age. We all know that milking seven days a week, twice and sometimes three times a day, is very taxing. Definitely robotic systems greatly relieve some of that physical stress. Yes, we are seeing ‘older’ dairy farmers going robotic just simply to extend their careers. “On the other side we’re seeing more low-tech systems such as swing parlors, rotational grazing, organics, etc. Thanks to innovation, this is getting to be a more dynamic, more exciting industry. Yes, niche markets keep developing.” State legislation Lunemann said permitting is always an issue for the MMPA, with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency usually being the “sticking point.” “We and other livestock groups have talked with the MPCA. We testified at

rules revisions this fall as to what rules Pollution Control administers that simply are not right. We did this in front of an administrative law judge. It’s part of the legal process. Obviously PCA believes they are right; we believe we are right. Hopefully the law judge does the right thing on behalf of animal agriculture,” Lunemann said. “The governor talks about this as being the ‘un session’. We hope this is the case with rules and regulations being streamlined and not so restrictive both for our dairy industry and the betterment of our general public.” Lunemann offered this potential breath of fresh air: The governor and each department chief have asked their staffs to look through existing statutes to find out what rules and regulations need to be refined, even eliminated if now obsolete but still on the books. A little “house cleaning” within government could be a benchmark of this 2014 session. ❖

LUNEMANN, from pg. 30 consistent because the genetics today are so tight. “You pretty much get the same finished animal every time and many retail customers today look for a certain sized cut of meat. Dairy beef conveniently fits the role,” he said. Uniform blood lines Uniformity within dairy breeds is a given these days. Lunemann said that within the nation’s dairy herds five Holstein bulls now dominate the blood lines of the entire industry. The rapid emergence of the science of genomics is driving this uniformity. “Today this science has become so skilled that they can take a hair sample or blood sample from a newly birthed animal and quickly determine whether that animal has good genetics for milking, or average genetics, or inferior genetics,” Lunemann said. This is almost like instant identifica-

Kilen Woods State Park, Jackson County, Minn.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

T

raveling in Minnesota is always an adventure. Mostly my farmer and I only get as far as the southwest corner. It is pretty, with its farmland, quartz rock and lakes. So imagine our surprise when we see a sign Kilen Woods State Park. This is extreme southwest Minnesota, not the northern tier where one might expect trees to be. It just seems a bit odd to see this sign. Eventually our curiosity got the best of us, and we just had to have a look. The park is in Jackson County, located nine miles northeast of Lakefield on Highway 24. Fairly undeveloped, there are campsites, a chalet for gatherings that can be used in the winter months and a amphitheater.

The Des Moines River has its beginning at Lake Shetek, outside of the town of Currie. According to one source the name is of French origin, meaning “River of Monks.” It peacefully meanders its way through farmland. This river at one time marked the edge of the Minnesota frontier in the 1850s, which is evident by Currie’s End of the Line Museum. But Kilen Woods State Park, authorized in 1945 by the Minnesota State Legislature, is a stark contrast from the gentle prairie lands the river flows through. It has been referred to as an oasis in the Farm Belt. One time it was a part of Agil Kilen’s farm, son of one of Jackson county’s early pioneers, Anders Kilen. Anders

Kilen also founded nearby Lakefield. A world of its own, five miles of hiking trails on the 200 acres completely blocks out the rest of the world. For here the traveler is surrounded by a burr oak forest that breaks into meadows with small creeks flowing through. In season wild flowers burst into bloom. While serene and tranquil to the visitor, there is plenty of life and activity. The cheerful sounds of birds fill the skies, not a surprise when one realizes that sightings of 226 different species of birds have been recorded. The wildflowers also draw pollinating insects and bees. And yes, mosquitoes, too, can be heard. The terrain is up and down, for in this Des Moines River Valley, the river

can be at your side, or you can be gazing down from a 150-foot bluff. Fishermen are sometimes rewarded for their efforts. Walleye, northern, catfish and bullheads are caught. In this special spot of God’s creation, the wonders are plentiful. One extraordinary highlight are the fens, where water seeps out of the hillside and creates its own microhabitat. Here one can see unusual grasses and rare wildflowers. Another rarity is the prairie bush clover. It is endemic to the Midwest, being found in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. It was designated as a federal endangered species See BACK ROADS, pg. 26
