speech well because it went so badly. I know this because an audience member approached me afterwards and asked who had invited me and why. He then suggested I leave. Bye. The sweaty memory breaks the cleaning fever, and the move to remove paper stops. Days pass. More snow falls. A few more robins appear; most busily scratch leaf-littered flowerbeds in search of food and spring. They find neither. A day later a cold front brings warm blue skies and an ice-edged wind. Somehow, enough heat from somewhere rises to carry a circling red-tailed hawk high over the nearby lake where thick ice continues to live in the shadows of the surrounding hills. Everywhere else on the lake, however, I see open water, the first in more than three months. The glistening water inspires. I grab the huge pile of paper that still needs to be sorted and, with neither ceremony nor hesitation, dump it all in the recycling box. Why had I not thought of that in, say, 2004? Now I’m ready for spring. I look out the office door. A robin lands in the nearby crab apple tree. Alan Guebert’s “Farm and Food File” is published weekly in more than 70 newspapers in North America.

Letter: Crop consultants help weed through agronomic sense

Open letter to Minnesota farmers: I am writing this letter on behalf of the Minnesota Independent Crop Consultants Association. The past few years in agriculture, there has been profitability made in crop production agriculture and it looks like the next few years we will be heading into some uncertain times with production agriculture profitability. The margins will become smaller as producers will look at all aspects of their farm operation on ways to streamline their production costs. The importance of an independent voice in a farm operation is essential in deciding what factors and inputs are of best value to the producer. The higher cost of land values and rental rates will have a slower rate of decline than what the commodity values have done in the last 12 months. This has caused many “cash flows” to break even or many farm operations to be losing money in the next few years if the downtrend in commodity prices continues. The higher commodity values of the past few years has caused some over expenditures related to inputs of our crops because we are always chasing the last few more bushels per acre that product A or B can maybe achieve for us. The independent crop consultant uses unbiased sound research to help define what products are of value to the grower or which products are the “fluff” that can be taken out of the “input” category in the See LETTER, pg. 5


Commentary: Modern production agriculture — modern enough?

LETTER, from pg. 4 cash flow of the crop production operation. The importance of being independent is that the crop consultant does not “sell” any products or have any interest in any industry product that comes to market. The independent crop consultant uses unbiased statistical analysis in making good sound agronomic decisions for the producer and is “only” working for the producer. In order to define what is good for your operation is to have someone who

can give excellent agronomic advice without making a profit on a product that is being sold to the producer. Feel free to look us up at www.MNICCA.org and there will be one close to you. There are many of us who are a part of the National Independent Crop Consultants Association that is also on our website.

modern production agriculture leaves much too large a footprint on the environment and should thus return to less-intense and more-sustainable production practices, such as those of the late-’50s and early ’60s. If we proceed to calculate a comparison to say 1960 agricultural production practices, we find that farmers would have needed to plant 38 million acres of corn, soybeans and spring wheat in Minnesota and 414 million acres nationwide to harvest equivalent 2013 production. Where would those additional 22 million acres needed for planting have to come from in Minnesota or for that matter the much larger 239 million acres needed nationwide?

the National Academy of Sciences, “Greenhouse gas mitigation by agricultural intensification,” and as reported in the journal Nature by Jeff Tollefson, “to many people, modern agriculture, with its industrial-scale farms and reliance on petroleum-based fertilizers, may seem a necessary evil — one that has fed a growing human population while causing untold damage to the environment. But the alternative may be worse, concludes the Stanford University study: a less-productive agricultural system would destroy even more wild land, drive up greenhousegas emissions and wreak havoc on biodiversity. The study’s results suggest that further agricultural intensification will play a critical part in addressing global warming.” These thoughts were submitted by Dave Craigmile of Boyd, Minn. ❖

THE LAND, APRIL 4, 2014

By TIM KING The Land Correspondent Research being conducted by University of Minnesota scientists at the U of M at Morris could revolutionize the Minnesota strawberry industry. June-bearing strawberries dominate commercial strawberry production in Minnesota. June-bearing strawberries flower and fruit in response to the lengthening of the days around the summer equinox. Everbearing, or day length neutral, strawberries have been around for many years. But, in the past, their low quality and small size has not made them commercially viable. University of California fruit breeders have spent decades working to improve day-neutral varieties. Recent California releases such as Portola and Albion, and English releases such as Evie-2, are making commercial day-neutral production possible. University of Minnesota researchers at University of MinMorris decided to create a project that nesota researchers combined the at Morris decided improved day-neuto create a project tral varieties with that combined the the growing interest improved dayof season extension neutral varieties for fruits and vegetawith the growing bles. interest of season In the spring of extension for fruits 2013, following a 2012 pilot project, six and vegetables. varieties of the new day-neutral strawberry varieties were planted on black plastic and under an irrigated system of plastic low tunnels. Comparison plots were also planted on black plastic mulch without the covering of clear plastic over the plants. These trials were replicated at the U of M’s St. Paul campus. The St. Paul trials also included a planting of strawberries with straw mulch. The 2013 Morris trials had yields of the day-neutral varieties in both the row tunnels and bare black plastic that substantially exceed normal yields of June-bearing varieties. Berry sweetness equaled that of June-bearing varieties and average berry size exceeded that of June-bearing varieties. The Portola variety was the top producer in Morris with a whopping 38,292 pounds per acre. Yields were lower in St. Paul but still exceeded those of more traditionally grown June-bearing plants. Evie-2, at 18,245 pounds per acre was the top producer under tunnels in St. Paul. Evie-2 actually did better on black plastic without the tunnel. St. Paul yields of Evie-2 without the tunnel were 20,961 pounds per acre. Yields for June-bearing varieties average between 5,000 to 6,000 pounds per acre, according to Esther Jordan. Jordan is a U of M communications specialist who wrote a computer blog for the research project.

Poppe excited about high yield and quality STRAWBERRY, from pg. 9

Harvest of the day-neutral berries started the third week of July and did not wrap up until late-October. That means that the season ran three months later than the June-bearing season. It was also about two months longer. Steven Poppe, a horticulture scientist who led the project, is excited about the high yields, high quality and extended season.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

“I believe there would be an excellent market for these berries in latesummer and into fall,” he said. “We are offering a fruit in Minnesota during a very non-traditional time. With

the developing local foods initiative this is big stuff. I also believe you could charge $3.50 to $4 per pound.” Poppe said that the students and faculty at Morris appreciated having fresh, locally grown fruit to eat in the fall. The production system for the black plastic and row covers is more complex than the traditional straw mulch used with June-bearing plants. The foundation of the system is a raised bed made with a bed shaper mounted on the back of a tractor. The drip irrigation tape and the black plastic mulch are laid down on top of the raised bed. Dormant strawberry plants are then planted into holes in

the black plastic. At the U of M two rows of plants were planted in each raised bed. The plants were a foot apart and were planted at a rate of 17,500 per acre, according to Poppe. The row tunnels are made of 12-foot wide four or six mil plastic supported by flexible steel hoops or rods. The plastic is rolled out over the hoops by hand. It is anchored to the ground at the ends but can be raised or lowered at Submitted the sides for harvest and Strawberries are grown in row tunnels made of 12frost protection. foot wide 4- or 6-mil plastic supported by flexible “In 2012 we lowered the steel hoops or rods.

James makes yard his gardening playground By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent Jeffrey “Jesse” James is a creative free spirit for whom gardening is recreation. “I never say I’m going to work in the garden,” James said. “I’m going to play in the garden. It’s what I do for fun.” James’ approach to gardening is one that could encourage non-gardeners to give it a try — have fun, do what you like and not what someone else says should be done, let your imagination flow, and when something doesn’t work just try something else. All of that is easier if you don’t see gardening as a competitive sport. James doesn’t compete with other gardeners to have the most beautiful or unique garden. “I don’t do any of my designing to please other people,” he said. “I do it to please myself, but if other people enjoy it, that’s a bonus.” Deer and rabbits are the only competition he has at his place on Bloody Lake southwest of Tracy, Minn., where he taught high school English until he retired about eight years ago. “I think part of my reason for gardening is when you’re a teacher, you don’t get to see the results of your work right away, and with gardening you do,” he said. Just because he is “playing” doesn’t mean he doesn’t put work into it. The playfulness comes in the

Jeffrey James gardens he creates, and in his whole attitude toward the garden. That attitude comes through in comments like “When something dies, it’s the opportunity to try something else,” and “if a plant pops up where I may not want it, OK, if it’s happy there, we’ll go for it.” Photos by Richard Siemers The décor Jeffrey James uses a variety of objects in his garden beds, as shown above with lightning and plants in rods as a focal point. the front of his one bird came and sat on the edge of his coffee cup. house change with the season.

On the south side of the house, the land sloped One morning while he sat very still with his coffee cup and watched the birds crowd around the bath, steeply toward the lake. He wanted a patio that would fit with the old farmhouse. “I didn’t want to do concrete on an old farmhouse,” he said. “I didn’t want to do a wooden deck because I knew I wouldn’t take care of it.” A former student taught him to build a rock wall, and he put one up without mortar so the water would drain, and filled it with gravel. (He got some of the rocks doing rock picking for farmers.) That became the base for a level patio that looks as original and rustic as the house itself. He cut up old poles obtained from a power company to put flower boxes and a low wall around the edge so no one would fall off, and used other poles to build an arbor to sit Inverted hole-filled minnow buckets serve as Leading The Industry With The Strength You Need! under. shades for patio lights.

The wedding couple is usually down on the grassy area with the lake as a backdrop. Guests sit down there and up on the patio. Large bur oak trees result in a shady backyard. The trees were small when he moved in, but as they have spread their branches, James has adjusted to more shade-tolerant plants. Half of one of the stately trees broke off in a recent storm. Rather than bemoan the loss, James took his usual approach. 320-974-8337 • wbgrain.com See JAMES, pg. 13

About the only rule is, no new beds or new areas James uses a variety of decorations and statues to adorn his garden areas. That explains the whimsy and magic that draws your eyes everywhere. One area in the Secret Garden has a host of lightning rods with glass balls, with a few light fixture globes added. Some globes are mixed with reflecting balls in another area. Twelve small animal figures are scattered around the garden. The fountain was intended as a large basin sitting on a pedestal, but he bought it at a bargain price because the base was tipsy. He removed the base, placed the basin on the ground, and inverted the base inside to create his own unique fountain. Even his potting bench is out of his imagination. He wanted something “garish,” he said. He built a structure around an old sink, painted it brightly, and installed old colored-glass church windows.

“A lot of time I’ll let some object sit around so I have to walk past it all the time, and then suddenly an inspiration will hit me,” he said.

While James works at creating his gardens, he does it in a playful way that makes it fun for him, using items he has scavenged at auctions, letting plants grow where they are happy, viewing any “failure” as an opportunity to try a different plant. He even refuses to get upset by the native competitors who disrupt his garden. “When rabbits find a way into the Secret Garden, I walk slowly toward them,” he said. “If I don’t panic them, they’ll show me where they get in, and I can close it. It’s a constant game.” Part of the fun for James is that “a garden is never finished.” He will always be trying new plants and changing the décor. One thing that will not change is the size of his garden. “I’ve made some rules for myself,” James said. “No more new beds, no more new areas. I want it to be fun, not a burden.” ❖

THE LAND, APRIL 4, 2014

JAMES, from pg. 12 “Now I have a sunny garden spot to work with,” he said. “I don’t want the trees to go down, but you might as well be positive.” The other main garden was inspired by the book and movie, “The Secret Garden”. There is no wall around it, but it is enclosed with shrubbery. This ground also slopes away from the house, so he built low rock walls to create level beds that are slightly raised, with paths meandering around them. There is something enchanted about the garden, in the sense that you don’t know what to expect. “There are no focal points,” James said. “Your eye goes everywhere. “ As the minnow buckets on the patio suggest, James will invest his time and effort in gardening, but not his bank account. He attends auctions and yard sales, bringing home items that “have potential.”

After soil amendments, irrigation, fertilizing, winter protection and finally pollination, the birds come. Robins and cedar waxwings can wreak havoc on a blueberry crop even as large as Branch’s and some type of netting is essential. Branch has constructed a canopy of netting to cover his entire patch. Workers and harvesters can walk within his completely netted enclosure. He takes the netting off after harvest is completed. “I usually put the nets on around the Fourth of July,” he said. Raccoons can also eat a lot of fruit. “I keep them out with an electric fence,” he said. Blueberries in Minnesota are generally insect pestfree but Branch is concerned about an invasive fruit fly that has recently been damaging his raspberries. He is concerned that they will also attack the blueberries. Yields were low in 2013 but in good years varieties like North Blue, St. Cloud, Polaris and Chippewa can yield eight to 10 pounds per plant of delicious blue fruit. ❖

Council says. “The corms should be cleaned or rinsed off with running water and then spread out to dry in shallow layers in trays or porous bags in an airy location that will not freeze, for a period of from two to three weeks.” “We dry them in a greenhouse,” Burt said. “Then we throw away the old mother corm and keep the bulblets or new corms.

GLADIOLUS, from pg. 16 see many blooms until into August. “The flowers were more than two weeks behind in 2013,” Burt said. The 2013 growing season was too late, too cold, too wet and then too dry. Too wet can be a problem if your soil isn’t well-drained. Too dry is a problem if you don’t have water available. Mulching prevents water loss and creates a healthy soil. Nevertheless, glads should have about an inch of water per week from rain or irrigation. After plants are done flowering, cut back the flower stalks but leave the spiky foliage intact. The new corms are still forming. Six to eight weeks after flowering, or before the ground freezes, loosen the plant from the soil with a spading fork. Once the plant is loose, pull it out by hand. “The plant should be separated from the corm as close to the corm as possible, either by hand breaking or cutting with pruning shears,” the Gladiolus

Readers ask ... How deep should my seeds be planted when I start them indoors? Planting the seeds twice as deep as they are thick is recommended for most seeds. How high should my grow lights be? I start out about two inches from the growing medium and when the seeds sprout I move the lights up to 4 to 6 inches above the top of the plants. The light needs to be raised as the plants grow taller. Why have my seedlings been so spindly? Often they just need some TLC in the form of a daily wave of your hand across their tops. This will stimulate the stems to grow stronger, much as outdoor breezes will strengthen plant stems. When should I start my tomatoes indoors? Around the middle of April is soon enough. If you start them too early you can get long, leggy plants that suffer some when transplanted in the garden. How long should my grow lights be on each day? About equal length of light and dark. A timer set for 12 hours works great. What are good labels for marking seed flats? Popsicle sticks work as do the plastic strips from old window blinds cut in four-inch lengths. Write the name on one side and write the planting date on the other side of the label. Sharon Quale is a master gardener from central Minnesota.

We all can agree: It’s been a long, long winter. If you’re an ice angler, then maybe you’re quite happy that your knuckles are scraping by the time your auger breaks through the thick mantel of ice. But the rest of us? Winter weary, we pine for the THE OUTDOORS sound of waves lapping against the boat, the pleasant aroma of By John Cross a burbling outboard, sunlight glinting off of a lake kissed with warm breezes. So what the heck. Kick aside that portable ice shelter taking up space in the garage, clear off a winter’s worth of stuff that somehow has accumulated on that boat on your side of the garage, hitch up and head south. Someplace down there, there has to be some open water. First stop is Clear Lake, Iowa, about 110 miles southeast of Mankato, Minn., as the crow flies. The good news, says Mike Platts at the Crazy Minnow located on Highway 18, is that the crappie fishing has been pretty good, particularly in the small lake on the west end of the big lake. Ditto for the feisty-but-tasty yellow bass. The bad news? You’ll still need your ice-fishing gear. “We’ve still got 27 inches of ice out there,” he said. “It’s mostly foot traffic though because the lake entrances are pretty rough to get through.” What’s more, even if it was easy to get a vehicle on the lake, he wouldn’t recommend it, explaining that aeration systems in operation on the lake and wind make vehicle traffic risky business at such a late date. His best estimate for ice-out? “Depending on the weather we have, probably mid- to late-April.” So southward we continue, a straight shot down I35 and then to Johnston Bait and Tackle near the Saylorville Reservoir, where Michael Olson has been selling plenty of bait to anglers coming through the door in recent days. But forget about launching the boat. “There’s still 15 inches of ice on the lake,” he said. Further, with shoreline conditions quickly deteriorating, venturing out on the lake proper could be a dicey proposition. “I wouldn’t do it,” he said. Instead, his business is mainly with the anglers who are savoring some pretty good walleye fishing on the ice-free Des Moines River that flows through Saylorville Reservoir. So if you still insist on launching that boat to wet a line, even further south we must travel. About 240 miles later, in Stoutsville in northeast Missouri, Wanda Turner was recently busy sprucing up ChiggerHill Bait and Tackle near Mark Twain Lake after locking it up last fall. “We weren’t planning on opening until the next

Unsung recipe heroes finally given due respect By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent We print a lot of recipes here at “Cookbook Corner,” but there are ever so many more that don’t make it into the column. Every once in a while I get into a spell of reminiscing as I look through my cookbook collection, and I feel a bit melancholy about the ones that didn’t get picked. In honor of all the great unsung recipes in this world, here are some extra goodies from past cookbooks that I still use regularly. Look again through your own cookbooks yourself, and you’ll probably find some new inspiration from an old friend. ■ An easy-to-make crust plus the scrumptiousness of classic tangy Reuben ingredients make this casserole a no-brainer for your plate and palate. It gets even more layers of flavor from a dash of caraway seed and the zingy Thousand Island dressing.

Set aside. Combine corned beef, cheese and dressing; mix well. Set aside. Separate biscuit dough into five biscuits; place in ungreased 8-inch round pan. Press over bottom and half an inch up sides to form crust. Spoon hot cabbage mixture over crust. Top with corned beef mixture. Bake at 375 F for 18 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Cut into wedges. Serves 2 to 3. ■ I have the next recipe photocopied and stuck to my bulletin board. It’s hokey, but I love this gentle reminder that it takes thought and effort to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Recipe for a Good Day From the “Women of the Moose Cookbook”, Mankato, Minn., 1979 Mix 2 parts unselfishness and 1 part patience. Add plenty of industry. Lighten with good spirits and sweeten with kindness. Put in smiles as thick as raisins in plum pudding, and bake by the warmth which steams from a loving heart. If this fails to make a good day, the fault is not with the recipe but with the cook. ■ The next recipe gets style points for its simple title: Pig Tators. Simple idea, too: Bake your potato with a sausage stuffed inside, infusing the potato with flavor while it cooks. Brilliant!

Then stuff hole with one link sausage. Grease the tator. Wrap in foil and bake

until well done, about 1 hour at 350 F. ■ The classic wilted salad has gone out of style, but it really should be brought back to the mainstream table both at home and in restaurants, in my opinion. Hot bacon, bacon grease, sugar and vinegar. ’Nuff said. Wilted Lettuce Salad From “Spirit of the Prairie”, Our Lady of the Prairie Retreat, Wheatland, Iowa, 2012 1 bunch leaf lettuce, torn 6 to 8 radishes, thinly sliced 4 to 6 green onions with tops, thinly sliced Dressing 4 to 5 bacon strips 1 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon pepper Toss lettuce, radishes and onions in a large salad bowl; set aside. In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towel to drain. To the hot drippings, add vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and pepper; stir well. Immediately pour dressing over salad; toss gently. Crumble the bacon on top. Serves 6 to 8. ■ A batch of this unique barbecue sauce poured over hot white rice was a surprisingly big hit at our house recently. Chock full of bacon and onions, it could be an entree as easily as a side dish. It went fabulously with the ribs I slow-cooked that day. Black rum is the darkest kind of rum, imparting bold, sweet, spicy flavors to your dish. (Don’t use spiced rum, though, that’s a whole different thing.) Four out of four “yums” from the Johnson clan!

tains of joy with only a pothole or two of ache. Yet there’s at least a small space within each soul that sings the old spiritual, “Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.” The song continues. “Nobody knows but Jesus.” It’s true. When you suffer, He’s the only One who knows and the only One worth running to. He’s not a distant God or seasonal — only available at Christmas, Easter and funerals. He’s near and He knows you. Jesus gets what you’re going through because He’s been there. He was a man of suffering, familiar with pain. So talk to Jesus. Approach Him with confidence. He may not give you what you want if what you’re asking for is answers, timelines, and quick exits. But He will provide what you need, be it hope, forgiveness, comfort or endurance. The Bible never promises that life will be easy, but it does promise that we will never walk alone.

Grain Outlook

Livestock Angles Hog market takes over excitement

Building a brand to set you apart

The following market analysis is for the week ending March 28. CORN — By the time most of you read this, we’ll have the U.S. Department of Agriculture Grain Stocks as of March 1 and Prospective Plantings reports behind us. This stocks report can, and usually does, create havoc. The acreage report will influence the trade, but usually is overshadowed by the stocks report. The average estimates for the March 31 reports are as follows: grain stocks as of March 1 at 7.099 billion bushels, range 6.861 billion to 7.540 billion bushels; 2014-15 corn acreage at 92.748 million PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. acres would be a decline of 2.7 St. Paul percent from last year, range of 90.5 million to 94.0 million acres. The range of guesses is fairly large and if the stocks number comes in as predicted, it will be the highest number since 2010. Last year’s corn stocks on March 1 were 5.4 billion bushels and we planted 95.365 million acres in 2013. Other supportive elements behind corn were also still present this week. Weekly export sales were double expectations at 55.4 million bushels, substantially higher than the 3.7 million bushels we need per week to hit the USDA export forecast. We have already committed 98 percent of the USDA export forecast with five months of the marketing year ahead of us. The leading buyer this week was Egypt. The uncertainty surrounding Ukraine as a supplier, although loadings have not as yet been interrupted, may have been an influence for the Egyptian

To say the livestock markets have been on fire lately would be an understatement. Actually the hogs have taken over for the cattle as far as excitement, and left the cattle market behind. The hog market has been propelled by the decline in numbers due to the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus that has swept through the country. This has forced the packers to scramble after live inventory and thus paid higher prices in order to acquire that immediate supply. Both the cash and futures markets have shot straight up over the last several weeks to levels never before seen. The pork JOE TEALE cutout has followed suit as retailBroker ers are forced to compete for pork Great Plains Commodity product and the cutout has Afton, Minn. increased on a fairly sharp incline during this period. It is still unknown what the overall effect this will have on the hog market or how long this will continue. The fact is that the hog market is in the process to find the point where demand slows enough to halt this current price bulge. There has been a large amount of speculation driving the futures market way ahead of the surging cash market and the basis has been extremely wide. As you know the cash and futures come together at the contract expiration of each contract. This has set up an opportunity for producers to take advantage of this wide basis and protect inventories if it works into their marketing plans. On a side note, the fact that the hog market will top at some point, it’s not a question of if, but when. The

What is your brand? No I’m not talking about your preferred brand of corn and soybeans or your preferred brand of equipment, but rather something we don’t hear about often — your farm’s unique brand. The dictionary defines a brand as a variety of something distinguished by distinctive set of characteristics. Each of us experiences brands and has brand preferences, whether you prefer Coca Cola to Pepsi or choose to visit Target over Walmart. A good brand is built by exhibiting consistent performance over time and by promoting their areas of strength. Grain producers each have DAREL NESS their own brand; no two are iden- AgStar Assistant VP tical. Producers tend to spend a Financial Services lot of time during the months Rochester, Minn. prior to planting working on tasks like equipment preparation, seed selection, arranging financing and negotiating rent contracts. In a competitive, tight-margin environment like we are currently experiencing, I believe it’s also important for producers to identify their unique brand characteristics and ultimately, promote themselves. What are you doing as a producer that is perceived as a value to other people or businesses you work with? Many producers have a large number of relationships to manage including employees, landlords, bankers, insurance agents and agronomists.

This move should have a bigger impact on 2014-15 exports than this year’s exports. Financial limitations may also reduce Ukrainian growers’ use of fuel and fertilizer. Early forecasts suggest spring plantings could fall by 30 percent in the Ukraine this year.

Weekly ethanol production fell 6,000 barrels per day to 885,000 barrels per day. Ethanol inventories were higher for the first time in five weeks at 15.65 million barrels, up 376,000 barrels for the week. Ethanol prices have been on a steady upward trajectory since lateJanuary. Transportation problems have plagued the market, getting ethanol from Midwest plants to where it’s

The Environmental Agency defended their proposal to reduce the ethanol mandate for 2014, citing forecasts for U.S. fuel usage. It’s expected they won’t have a final decision until June.

Protection

Ending the week, the Quarterly Hogs and Pigs report should provide additional support to corn prices and consequently pressure to hog prices. All hogs and pigs were 97 percent of last year, higher than the 95 percent estimate. A lower number had been anticipated on losses associated with the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. Postreport market calls were for limitdown hogs after the recent surge in hog prices. OUTLOOK: May corn rallied 13

COF report a little negative tinues to indicate consumer resistance to these higher beef prices. It is apparent as the cutout goes up the boxed beef movement slows down. On March 21, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the Monthly Cattle on Feed Report. The results are as follows: On feed March 1, 99 percent; placed during February, 115 percent; marketed during February, 97 percent. The report is seen as a little negative since the placements were higher than anticipated. This would have the most effect on the summer market. Like the hog market, the cattle market is in the process of finding that point where supply exceeds demand. Therefore producers are urged to stay tuned to market conditions and protect inventories as needed. ❖

Price direction will be dictated by the March 31 crop reports, so there’s no need to make a premature forecast. SOYBEANS — As in corn, Monday’s USDA announcements will set the tone for the market’s foreseeable future. The average estimate for soybean stocks on March 1 is 989 million bushels with a range of 955 million to 1,087 million bushels. If realized, this would be the smallest stocks number since 2004. If the stocks number is larger than anticipated, it will be assumed that last year’s crop was underestimated. Soybean acreage is forecast at 81.075 million acres with a range of 78.5 million to 83.6 million acres. Last year, we had 998 million bushels in storage and planted 76.533 million acres. Once the USDA numbers are behind us, focus will return to planting weather and rationing of bean supplies. Weekly export sales were in the middle of estimates at 400,000 bushels for old crop, but are still a net positive, which we don’t need. They were also a marketing year low. New crop sales were 19.6 million bushels. Total old crop export commitments stand at 1.633 billion bushels versus the USDA projection for 1.53 billion bushels. China has been diverting, delaying and canceling South American purchases, with some heading to the United States. The Chinese bean conundrum has not yet been solved. Brazil’s bean harvest is 73 percent complete as of March 28. Safras this

The Congress in Brazil is considering a bill that would tax soybean exports 9.25 percent, but those in the know do not expect it to pass. In Argentina, a labor strike at the ports is looming. Workers are demanding a 45-percent increase in wages to more than cover yearly inflation that is projected at 30 percent. A one-day strike may occur on April 10. OUTLOOK: May soybeans soared 27 3/4 cents for the week to settle at $14.36 1/2 per bushel; November beans were 13 1/4 cents higher at $11.90 1/2 per bushel. Export sales are beginning to decline, but still not enough. Rumors about China having trouble opening letters of credit due to credit law changes have been circulating and their crush margins have been negative for some time. South American soybeans, and possibly meal, work on paper into the United States. A few cargoes of South American beans are reportedly on their way to the United States. This may cause money flow into the soy complex to slow. For a little history since 2000: on the day of the March 1 Grain Stocks and Prospective Plantings, nearby soybeans closed higher five times and lower nine times. For corn, it closed higher eight times, lower five times and unchanged once. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending March 28: Chicago May wheat was 2 1/4 cents higher, Minneapolis down 3 1/2 cents and Kansas City dropped 7 3/4 cents on actual and forecasted rain. May crude oil rallied $2.21 to $101.67, ultra-low-sulfur diesel jumped up 3 1/2 cents, gasoline gained 3 3/4 cents and natural gas was 18 3/4 cents higher. The Hogs and Pigs report on March 28 was bearish to hogs with all hogs at 97 percent of last year when 94.5 percent was expected. This led to the anticipation of a limit down move in hogs in the next trading session. This material has been prepared by a sales or trading employee or agent of CHS Hedging Inc. and should be considered a solicitation. ❖

TEALE, from pg. 22 “when” will be determined when supply exceeds demand. The cattle market continues to remain firm, at least on the cash side. The futures market is beginning to struggle once again as it has in the past at the recent highs. Cattle numbers are still relatively tight and packers seem secure in competing for live inventory despite what the futures market is doing. Beef cutouts have moved back above the $240 per hundredweight level basis choice once again which helps keep the packer margins in the black or at least close to break-even. The problem with these higher cutout values is the resistance by the retailer to acquire large quantities of product. This con-

U.S. logistics, both rail and barge, are slowly improving. This is a must since we have the largest amount of corn for this time of year sold, not shipped, since the 1990s at 750 million bushels.

NESS, from pg. 22 or your family’s farm heritage come to mind? These are things that help define the brand of your operation and it’s fairly safe to say these are traits that your business relationships may find of value also. Many things you do as a producer have value to the people and businesses you work with, but it’s important that you take the time to promote your accomplishments and unique identifiers so your key partners are aware of your accomplishments. When negotiating contracts or building a relationship, if you only discuss dollars and don’t bring to light any other important details about your business, it shouldn’t be surprising that only dollars will be considered when making a decision. If only dollars are discussed, it would make it easy for a competitor to come in, outbid you and ruin your relationship. Promoting your business and your key accomplishments is an important part of sharing your brand. A few things you can do are to prepare a resume, create a flyer or a website that highlights what you are proud of, and build a list of references. It’s also important that you play an active role in your community. Get involved in school boards, volunteer for a fundraiser, or sponsor a float in your town’s parade. No matter what you decide to do,

make sure to be creative and make your efforts personal to your operation. Promoting your brand doesn’t just fall to you as the producer. It’s important that everyone on your team, especially those who deal with people, are promoting your brand as well. For example, your trucks and drivers can have a huge impact on your brand that can be either positive or negative. Make sure your drivers are aware of your key accomplishments and are trained to act as a mobile billboard for your farming operation. It’s also important that you don’t forget to start training your successors to manage relationships. Include the next generation as soon as it’s reasonable in meetings with people like landlords, bankers and lawyers to give them the time and exposure needed to develop their own style and skill set. If you are not comfortable with the idea of promoting your brand or if you need brushing up on your relationship management skills, consider investing the time to take a class to improve this important skill. It may be just as important to the success of your business as any class you take. AgStar Financial Services is a cooperative owned by client stockholders.

Some manufacturers are finishing export sales before transitioning to holiday commitments with a few already finished with Easter orders. ■ Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Friday at $2.03, down 2 cents on the week. Two cars were sold. NDPSR powder averaged $2.0892, down a penny, and dry whey averaged 65.46 cents, up 0.4 cent. Commercial disappearance of milk in all dairy products fell below U.S. dairy farmer milk marketings by 296 million pounds in January, according to the USDA’s latest Dairy Data report. Commercial disappearance of milk in all dairy products for January was estimated at 16.9 billion pounds, up 3.8 percent from January 2013, while January farmer milk marketings totaled 17.2 billion pounds, up 1 percent from 2013. American cheese commercial disappearance was estimated at 371.2 million pounds, up 10 percent from January 2013. Other-than-American cheese, at 596.1 million pounds, was up 3.1 percent. Butter commercial disappearance totaled 157.8 million pounds, up 15.8 percent, and nonfat dry milk disappearance, at 124.3 million pounds, was down 2.6 percent.

Weather, feed costs and feed quality are reasons to layer in protection on margins, Brooks said. Producers are also looking at a new risk management tool from the new farm bill, and are “learning how to implement margin insurance that will protect them against the massive price fluctuations that we seem to have in agriculture.” ■ Cheese production continues to build across the country as increased amounts of milk become available for manufacturing, according to the USDA’s Dairy Market News. The seasonally expected increases are still falling short of meeting demand. Manufacturers are increasingly turning to nonfat dry milk and condensed skim to increase vat yields. Despite block prices reaching new record price levels, demand continued to be strong. Both domestic and export buyers are filling most contract orders but are finding it difficult to access additional spot loads of blocks. Barrels are in a better position but demand was being tempered by high prices. ■ Cash butter closed at $2/lb., first time since September 2011, up 8 cents on the week and 37 cents above a year ago. Five cars sold on the week. NDPSR butter averaged $1.8506, up 1.1 cents. Butter prices are strengthening but the U.S. price advantage over most global markets was still fostering active export orders, according to the DMN. The market tone is mostly firm as supplies are light to moderate and overall demand is improving. Many butter churn operators are running at steady rates with adequate cream available, while a few experienced tighter cream conditions resulting in reduced production levels. Butter makers’ focus varies among the regions

MIELKE, from pg. 24 inventory number in their calculation and, while Dryer prefers three-month rolling averages as opposed to monthly numbers, his data suggests January butter disappearance was up 16.7 percent. More significantly, it was up 17.9 percent over the most recent three months. American cheese wasn’t real strong in January, Dryer said, and was only up about 0.8 percent in the last three months. Other-than-American cheese, like Mozzarella, Gouda, and some of the cheese being exported, was strong, up more than 3 percent, for the most recent three months as well as for January. “Cheese has continued to move well,” Dryer said, “and disappearance was probably very good in February and even in March as these prices haven’t pushed through to retail quite as fast as they frequently do.” While USDA data suggests nonfat dry milk disappearance was down in January, Dryer reiterated that one month doesn’t make a trend. His data has it up almost 4 percent during January and up 10 percent for the most recent three months. Furthermore, USDA data doesn’t include skim milk powder, as Dryer’s does, and “that’s the big mover in exports,” he said. Dryer sees “relatively high prices” for the next month or so. “We will come off those record highs on cheese and powder, although butter appears to be moving higher at this point,” he said, “but, continued good strength although not as high as we’ve seen in recent weeks.” The record cheese price levels were probably a little misleading, according to FC Stone dairy economist Bill Brooks. “Dairy farmers have never seen prices like this before,” he said in Tuesday’s “DairyLine”. “We are in a tight market.” Prices set records because of the world market, weather, feed prices and featured dairy products in store shelves from the last football season and now March madness, according to Brooks, but “those are going to go away quickly. “That’s going to negatively impact our demand and hopefully, not make the down-turn potentially worse than what we might anticipate,” he said. He feels the markets were “a bit overcooked.” Brooks said prices are 60 to 70 cents above a year ago and 10 to 30 cents above international prices, warning that “we’re going to lose that competitive factor that helped us ship a lot of product offshore. ... The market is always right,” he said, “we have to figure out the timing of when it is going to go in the other direction.” Some producers have put in some risk management positions, like forward contracting with their milk buyer, and some are also locking-in feed prices, he said, and both have started to work their way higher. “We are starting to see dairy producers look at that,” he said. “They are being pretty judicious with those positions because they do see this market is continuing to go up.” He said it’s more difficult to hit the exact high of the market when trying to sell milk in futures, options or a forward contract. So producers don’t want to miss it by too much and “leave money on the table.”

Advantages we offer: • We unload directly from the trucks to a floater (Terra Gator) without stockpiling material. This gives us a more uniform spread with no foliage to plug up the spreader. • With direct loading there is no stockpile, no wasted lime or mess in your field. • We use a floater (Terra Gator) to spread so we have less compaction. • We are equipped to spread variable rate using GPS mapping. • We service Minnesota and northern Iowa. Why apply Aglime: • A soil ph level of 5.5 nitrogen efficiency is only 77 percent. • A soil ph level of 6.0 nitrogen efficiency still is only 89 percent. • At a soil ph level of 7.0 fertilizer efficiency is 100 percent.

Delicious artwork

This week’s Back Roads is the work of The Land correspondents Tim King (story) and Jan King (photo)

ask, “Is El Portal Restaurant art gallery or a restaurant?” O nean could

There are countless works of art in this Melrose, Minn., restaurant. For example, in the entryway there is a painting of Don Quixote. A quick look reveals just a nice painting of an old fellow foolishly chasing windmills. But look carefully and you will get lost in the many layers of this fascinating painting. To eat you must pass through the restaurant’s inside door. Portal is a Spanish word for door. Having passed through the portal you will first notice a smile and friendly greeting from a member of the Hernandez family. They have owned this restaurant for a decade. But, if you look across the dining room, a vibrantly colorful mural will strike you. “You see,” Jose Hernandez said, “it is like you are entering the portal of a courtyard. In the distance you see the parish church.” Jose has been in many such courtyards, as has his wife, Ana Rosa. So had the fellow who painted the mural. “One day I received a call. The man said he was calling from Iowa. He had a funny name. I don’t remember it,” Jose said. The fellow was a traveling artist. He asked, did Jose want a mural in his restaurant. “I said no, not really. He said, may I come to talk to you. OK, I said. It doesn’t matter.” Apparently, Jose and Ana Rosa did want a mural. They just didn’t know it. “He talked to my wife for a while and they had an idea,” Jose said. The Hernandezes left the restaurant at 11 p.m. that night. “When we came back the next morning he was at a table drinking coffee and there was the mural,” Jose said. “I never even saw his paints.” Did he make a drawing first? “No.” “I heard he was in Missouri after that but I don’t know. He doesn’t answer his phone. He said he never returns to the same place.”

The mural is about 20 feet long and nine feet high. The mystery artist was indeed fast. Every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday El Portal serves special buffet meals under the mural. Wednesday is for Mexican specialties, Thursday for tacos and Sunday is brunch. That means they are a restaurant. But, in addition to the mural there are dozens of other works of art to enjoy while you eat. ❖
