grant universities that research global warming. At the forefront is Eugene Takle, a professor of agronomy and director of Iowa State University’s Climate Science Program. Currently, Takle and ISU colleague Jerry Hatfield, director of the National Lab for Agriculture and Environment, are lead authors of the ag chapter of the mandated 2014 National Climate Assessment. The report, due later this month, “will paint a sobering picture of climate change globally and its impacts on the United States,” Takle related when interviewed last fall for a campus publication. “One of the key messages of the report,” Takle said, “is that the incidence of weather extremes will continue and will have increasingly negative effects on crop and livestock productivity because critical thresholds are already being exceeded.” At least someone at a respected American agricultural institution believes climate change will be the 21st century farm and ranch game changer. Too bad it’s not an actual farm or ranch group. Alan Guebert’s “Farm and Food File” is published weekly in more than 70 newspapers in North America. Contact him at agcomm@farmandfoodfile.com.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

Springtime weather has finally arrived. The winter period has been the time for meetings, while spring brings outdoor activities and scratching of the soil for planting. From recent phone calls in the McLeod and Meeker counties Extension offices, I can tell people in the community are thinking ahead. Many of the common questions revolve around tree management. For example, when should I prune my apple trees? Well, if you have not already, there is still some time for certain species of trees. You can prune apple trees, including flowering crabapples, mountain ash, hawthorns and shrub cotoneasters in late-winter from February to early April. Spring or summer pruning increases chances for infection and spread of the bacterial disease fireblight. Autumn or early winter pruning is more likely to result in drying and die-back at pruning sites. Oaks, ash and elm trees can also be pruned this time of year. Pruning approaches include crown thinning, crown raising and crown reduction. Crown thinning is primarily used in hardwoods to increase the amount of room for light and air to penetrate the tree. You still will want to maintain the tree’s natural shape and form. Another form of crown thinning is to make sure there is only one dominant leader instead of two or more codominate leaders on the tree. Crown raising is cutting off some of the bottom branches to permit travel underneath the tree. This could be for lawn mowers, people and vehicles. Be sure not to raise the crown of the tree too high to avoid an excessively high crown. Crown reduction is another approach to pruning. This method should be used only in a last resort when the tree has outgrown its permitted space. This approach should not be used on trees with a pyramidal growth form. Topping and tipping pruning practices do more harm to trees than they help. Topping is pruning large upright branches between the nodes and is sometimes done to reduce the height of the tree. Tipping is pruning lateral branches between nodes to reduce the crown width. These practices result in sprouts and dead branches that will reduce the life of the tree. Use the crown reduction method as a last resort and avoid topping and tipping. What about treating the wounds? Most of the time the tree sap, gums and resins naturally work to decrease pathogens invading the trees. Therefore, there are few circumstances when wound dressings are needed for pruning cuts. Often, they create more problems than they avoid. The University of Minnesota Extension website — www.extension.umn.edu — contains a vast amount of information. At another U of M link — http://z.umn.edu/pruningtrees14 — you can learn more about pruning trees and shrubs. The Extension website is an excellent source of information, but you are not limited to just that. I am always happy to find information to help answer your questions. We also have Master Gardeners available to help out with your questions. Feel free to call me in McLeod County Extension Office at (320) 484-4303 or Meeker County Extension Office at (320) 693-5275 for further information. You can also reach me by e-mail at wint0146@umn.edu.

Avoid the dangers of ‘do-it-yourself’ tree care The Tree Care Industry Association reviewed 45 civilian tree care-related accidents reported by the media in 2013. Of these accidents, 28 (62 percent) were fatal. The average age of the victim was 52. These accidents involved homeowners who attempted “do-it-yourself ” tree work. These statistics do not represent all — or even most — of the tree care accidents involving non-professionals. These were simply the accidents sensational enough to be reported by the media on the day they happened. Even so, these statistics provide insight into the types of hazards that one is likely to encounter while attempting tree work. “These accidents serve as a stark

reminder of the dangers homeowners face when conducting their own tree work, and highlight the need for tree owners to seek out tree care companies with the proper qualifications and equipment to handle the work safely,” said Peter Gerstenberger, senior adviser for Safety, Standards & Compliance for TCIA. “Because tree care involves dangerous procedures such as pruning large limbs, felling trees and climbing trees, it is best to outsource the job to a trained professional.” Struck-bys Thirty people were injured — 21 of them fatally — when they were struck by some object while performing tree work. Typically there were struck by the tree itself (18 of 30) or a tree limb (eight of 30).

Two civilians were injured when they were struck by a car while attempting to clear a fallen tree from the roadway. One homeowner was struck by a chainsaw. Finally, a caring spouse was injured when she was struck by her falling husband, because of his own tree care mishap. Lessons: Successful tree felling and large limb removal involves accurate assessment of the lean, weight distribution and other forces acting on the tree as well as internal defects that can affect how the tree will react. These are just a few of the important factors. A professional tree feller uses a precise face cut (wedge, undercut) and back cut, and possibly ropes and felling wedges, to control the tree’s or branch’s direction of fall. Falls There were 14 falls in the media in 2013. Six of the 10 falls from trees and one of the four falls from ladders were fatal. Lessons: Cut branches — especially large ones cut with a chainsaw — almost invariably hit the base of the ladder as they fall, wiping out the ladder. Homeowners fall out of trees typically because they are not secured and lose their balance. A sure recipe for disaster involves mixing height, large falling or swinging masses, a powerful chainsaw and inexperience with any or all of the aforementioned ingredients.

Case study All of the 45 accidents we analyzed were classified as either struck-bys or falls. The final accident is so unique — and yet in some ways so representative — that we thought it best to relate a summary of the news account: “A 70-year-old gentleman in Fenton, Mich., scaled 65 feet of tree in his backyard for what he thought would be routine tree trimming. Unfortunately, this routine tree trimmer needed rescuing after he had nearly completed his yard work. “I went to cut a limb over my head and lost concentration for a split second,” the gentleman said. “The limb went the wrong way, the rope got caught on my foot and broke it, and I couldn’t get down. I was just trying to save some money and do it myself, but one second of carelessness can wreak havoc.” Founded in 1938, Tree Care Industry Association is a public and professional resource on trees and arboriculture. It has more than 2,100 member companies who recognize stringent safety and performance standards and who are required to carry liability insurance. TCIA also has the nation’s only accreditation program that helps consumers find tree care companies that adhere to industry standards for quality and safety; maintain trained, professional staff; and are dedicated to ethical and professional business practices. ❖

There really is nothing that compares with sitting down to a meal of fish that only hours earlier still swam in cold water. The shelter, the heater, all of the other coldweather ice-fishing gear have been stashed. I am done with them. A specter of this winter past, the snow blower, still haunts my garage, silent, poised for more action. I’ll admit that these past months would have been even more trying without the machine that faithfully chewed through the all-too-frequent snowfalls. Nevertheless, like someone whistling past a graveyard, I’ve tried not to look at it as the garage door rumbles up and I walk past the machine every morning. Instead, I see the boat awaiting preparation for the ice-out crappie bite, a lawnmower to tune, a motorcycle that needs a new rear tire. In keeping with a vow made several weeks ago that I was done moving any more snow, I resisted the urge to fire the snow blower up following early April’s blizzard. Several weeks into spring, I let Mother Nature, unkind as she has been, clean up this most recent mess she left in my driveway. Thank goodness for four-wheel-drive. John Cross is a Mankato (Minn.)

freshman year of FFA, as he participated in a “career development event” contest in ag leadership. He did “Conduct of Meetings” for it, taking him to the state competition, where he came in last in the state. “Mr. Earll said it didn’t matter because it was more about the journey anyway,” he said. His sophomore year he became involved in launching the creation of an unofficial welcome center near Sibley called “Hawkeye Point.” It’s the highest point in Iowa, which their FFA chapter thought could make a good attraction to their county. He worked with the county board of supervisors, and that year also met and got to know Gov. Terry Branstad, Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. “I didn’t know how big of a deal it was at the time,” he said. He served as chapter secretary during his junior year and spent that year working toward the state FFA degree, which he received.

His senior year brought chapter reporter responsibilities, as he worked with local media and businesses in the community. He also helped secure funding for the “Hawkeye Point” welcome center, and saw the campground portion of that area become a reality. That year he was also approached by Jake Kent, a state FFA officer, about running for a state office. He was elected to the Northwest State Vice President position for the 2010-11 year, and never looked back. “Jake asked me one day if I’d ever thought about running. It got me thinking about it. I can’t thank him enough for how much he’s done me,” said Brockshus, who graduated from Sibley-Ocheyedan High School in 2011. During his first year as a state officer he put 20,000 miles on the car doing chapter visits around the state and visiting with school administrators. They worked with students on teamwork, communication and See BROCKSHUS, pg. 15A

He said a man from New York once asked him what GMOs are. “It was neat to be able to share that knowledge with him and share what I’ve learned in my animal science class in college,” Brockshus said. “He thought all farms in Iowa were factory farms.” The most meaningful part of his FFA experience, Brockshus said, has been being able to reach out to other young people and get them excited about agriculture. “I never thought I would be able to travel halfway around the world through FFA.” He will finish up his term on the national officer team with the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky., this November. His future plans call for finishing college at ISU, where he is majoring in ag education and global resource systems. He would like to become an ag education teacher or start an agribusiness of some kind. He leaves all options open, as he said he keeps a notebook handy at all times to jot down ideas he has about alleviating world hunger, and ways he can contribute to that goal. His ultimate dream would be to return to this family’s dairy farm after he’s been out in the world. “What I hang my hat on at the end of the day is that anyone can find success. I found it through my involvement in FFA. No matter who you are or what you do, there’s always something you can do to be involved in FFA and become successful,” Brockshus said. ❖

Gearing up for another term, Peterson looks ahead, behind By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Indicating there’s still a lot of work to be done, Congressman Collin Peterson, 24 years representing Minnesota’s largely rural western Minnesota district, announced on March 17 that he is now seeking his 13th term in Con- Collin Peterson gress. Likely favored to repeat, even in this November election when Democrat incumbents are likely to get roughed up a bit, he’s not bashful about trashing both Tea Party Republicans and extreme left Democrats. He doubts Democrats will take the U.S. House this year. If he wins he will continue to work with Republicans on issues that he considers not to be partisan, and issues relating to U.S. agriculture usually fall into that category, he said. Q: After 12 terms and 24 years in Congress, why are you a candidate again? Peterson: There’s still a lot of work to be done. Yes, we finally got a farm bill passed but now the implementation process begins. And that is often more important that getting the bill passed because, as we all know, the devil is in the details of virtually all legislation. In the 2008 farm bill some of the items I got into that bill, especially in the energy issue, but the time they got done with the rules it was completely opposite of what I had intended. That was the time the environmentalists

Q: Perhaps a good example is our local Farm Service Agency office. Those staff people at this stage are simply bewildered because farmers are asking questions; they don’t yet have information and have nothing to tell them about the details of the farm bill. Peterson: That is one good example of the complexity of this legislation. But already there are other big issues. The railroad car issue with oil now displacing grain. We’ve got to get the highway bill done. There’s just a lot of work to be done. I’ve had three to four weeks off after getting the farm bill done. I’m kind of back to normal. I’m feeling

I’ve got some clout on both sides of the aisle, especially in agriculture, and I think I can bring that to bear so that it’s good both for my district and the country. Q: My coffee friends are asking why don’t you get some work done? Peterson: (Said jokingly) Why don’t the voters elect some people who want to get work done? What’s happened is that congressional districts have been so gerrymandered (reassigned borders) that most of the voters in a given district now represent mostly one party or the other. When this happens these districts get polarized to the right, or to the left. Compromise seems to disappear. Then we have talk radio and the various so-called news channels which often express their own political leanings. We’ve made some progress ... getting the budget and the farm bill done. We’ve raised the debt ceiling. So hopefully we can build on that but the reality is that there are a bunch of people who come to Washington and don’t want to get anything done. Q: What was the “trigger point” that finally got the farm bill completed? Peterson: Basically two things were hanging it up. The dairy issue was one and we seemingly had support of the dairy industry and the four major farm groups but (Republican House Leader John) Boehner was supporting the position of the dairy processors. Things were going along smoothly, or so we thought. When he appointed the conferees it was such that See PETERSON, pg. 18A

If we can’t come up dairy farmers are going to be protected with a new coalition to get something done, the process will likely be extending the current bill, much like we did this past year because they won’t want to go to permanent law which automatically props agricultural prices, especially milk, to much higher levels. So this might be a 10-year farm bill, and we can live with that. It’s not perfect but given with what we were dealing with it’s a pretty good outcome. Yes, it totaled 959 pages as you reported in your magazine. The fiveyear price tag is $489 billion. The

nutrition program accounts for $371 billion or about 76 percent of the total cost. But frankly we couldn’t have passed a new farm bill without the inclusion of this nutrition package ... and that’s basically because 90 percent of today’s Congress is outside of agriculture. And for these members of Congress it’s not just food stamps; it’s school lunch; it’s money for the food shelf program; it’s food aid for the elderly; it’s feeding the hungry within the “inner city” ghetto areas, etc. Sure there are some abuses generally at the state and local levels where they’ve permitted eligibility below the criteria standards. So a number of states have now qualified families and individuals for food stamps anyway, and you and I are paying for it. Q: Years back you were a state senator in the Minnesota Legislature.

dealt with in this farm bill. Once that resolution happens, we potentially will try to do Country of Origin legislation separately from the farm bill. Part of the problem is that we have an integrated marketplace with Mexico and Canada. So if pigs are farrowed in Canada but finished in the United States, would the label have to state that “dual-origin” status? So could the label in fact read a product of both U.S. and Canada? I think multiple labels could work, at least as a starting point. Also pigs born in Canada but processed down here, would the packing house have to shut down the line temporarily because of a change of origin of the next kill? Q: Is E15 fuel going to happen? Why isn’t it happening? Peterson: EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is hung up on this issue. I think we’ll be getting some relief.

PETERSON, from pg. 18A believe Minnesota state government functions pretty well. But it all boils down to the new politics of today’s society ... cable news, talking anchors, Twitter, Facebook, etc. Everyone is an expert these days and half the time they don’t know what they’re talking about. Q: Wolf hunting is again an issue in Minnesota. Do these things sometimes become issues within Congress, too? Peterson: Very definitely. I’ve been pushing wolf hunting because I’m in favor of it. This is not just a Minnesota issue, but also in Michigan, Montana and elsewhere. Early on it was the federal government that wouldn’t allow a state to have a season. But I, (Sen. Amy) Klobuchar and the Montana delegation got on that to be a state issue and soon it was. Even in the farm bill in the conservation section we have written in the protection of wildlife as well as water quality and other conservation issues. Q: So in view of the relative prosperity of farming the past several years, why do we need a farm bill? Peterson: I get that often and I simply respond that low prices will get you high prices and pretty soon high prices will get you low prices. So this uncertainty of income is partly the protection that crop insurance provides. We’re in the moderation cycle right now and some farmers soon won’t be making money. If everyone had been totally responsible and banked some of their new money rather than investing in more land and machinery, they could better wiggle through these cycles. But you know how people are, farmers included. They don’t want to pay more taxes so they used their new wealth for new equipment to cash in on the first-year depreciation allowances. Q: Some economists are predicting net income for 2014 to be upwards of 25 percent below 2013 net income. Is the farm bill providing some protection against this downfall? Peterson: All the inputs costs of agriculture have risen significantly. So yes, crop insurance is a strategy to lessen the financial hurt. But people have to understand the high costs of getting into farming these days. Bankers won’t work with “wannabee” farmers without this safety net of crop insurance. It’s this crop insurance program that makes bankers willing to work with startup farmers, too. The average person living in town or the city has no concept of the capital needs of farming these days. Q: Why didn’t Country of Origin Labeling get included in the new farm bill? Peterson: Because there was no resolution as to what would be a working solution. We’re working with current WTO (World Trade Organization) rulings but no one has resolved the issue of what will make Country of Origin work. This one takes some international compromising. If people had come to us saying “if you do this, it will work.” But because we never got to the point of knowing what the resolution would be, it never got

Delay likely on B20 biodiesel mandate law

THE LAND, APRIL 11, 2014

By DAN LINEHAN Mankato Free Press ST. PAUL — In November 2011, state regulators admitted they weren’t ready for the move to require diesel fuel sold in the summer to contain 10-percent biodiesel made primarily from soybean oil.The Legislature had earlier aimed to move to socalled “B10” diesel fuel by 2012.

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

But the commerce department wasn’t confident in its ability to conduct timely inspections of retail outlets and trucking facilities to ensure the new standard would be met. The lack of blending facilities in southwest Minnesota was also

partly responsible for the delay. Almost two years later, on Sept. 30, 2013, the state decided it was ready for the 10-percent mixture, called “biodiesel.” It had to give 270 days’ notice before each increase, so the implementation was set for July of this year. However, under the Legislature’s original bill, a bump to 20 percent was coming up fast, in 2015. That deadline would be extended by three years, to 2018, under a bill from North Mankato Rep. Clark Johnson. The basic problem with the 2015

deadline is similar to the reasons for the earlier delays: The state just isn’t ready, he said. The state’s soybean farmers association, Mankato-based Minnesota Soybean, supports the bill, said Mike Youngerberg, its senior director of field services. Another version of the bill, opposed by the association, would have delayed the 10percent transition and eliminate the 20percent move entirely. But it failed to pass a Senate committee last month. Johnson’s bill, too, has an uncertain future — it didn’t pass through its House committees before a March 21 deadline — but he believes it can still pass this year. In addition to delaying the B20 mandate, Johnson’s bill has two relatively minor changes. First, the mandate currently only applies to fuel sold between April and October. Biodiesel is more likely than regular fuel to turn to a gel in cold weather.The bill would change the last month of the summer mandate to September. “In discussions with a number of people, we agreed that October could be a little chancy, especially if it gets really cold during the harvest,” Youngerberg said. The bill also allows an exemption for companies that build generators to test them without biodiesel. The change was sought by MTU Onsite Energy, formerly Katolight, but is not specific to the Mankato company.

“We certainly want to recognize that people have the opportunity to sell equipment in other places and need to be able to test it,” Youngerberg said.Biodiesel has been a boon for soybean farmers in part because the industry has had excess soybean oil for some time, as the food industry has been moving away from transfats. (Oil is released as soybeans are crushed, and the remaining meal is used largely for livestock feed.) “It was a substantial market that moved away,” he said. “If it weren’t for biodiesel taking up that slack, we could have been in really dire straits.” There is opposition to the mandate, including from the trucking industry. Bruce Goodrich, owner of R & E Enterprises of Mankato, said he’s not opposed to purchasing biodiesel — he bought a 20-percent mixture last summer for the fleet — but he wants the ability to buy regular diesel when it’s cheaper. “They have a much better product today. It’s just that price is the biggest issue that we’re facing on a daily basis,” said Goodrich, who formerly sat on the state’s Biodiesel Task Force. Even a few pennies per gallon can make a big difference to a company that’s consuming 1,500 gallons a day.“That’s a lot of change at the end of the year,” he said.

AgStar’s Kohls gives inside look to legislation So how do we keep “rural Minnesota” alive and vibrant? Keeping a strong infrastructure is critical, he said. That includes roads, bridges and telecommunications capabilities such as rural broadband. “It’s important that businesses in our rural communities can perform and provide their services just as effectively as the Twin Cities or other suburban area. “Also I think our rural citizens, including our farmers, need to tell their stories. There are a lot of great things happening in rural Minnesota. People need to take the time to share their story because it’s a great story.” He said some communities are seeing a return of their younger generation because they can come home and now thanks to computer technology work from their country home even though their corporate headquarters is elsewhere. “I have a young lady who works for me who was able to move back to her

home community doing the same job. She was so pleased about being able to ‘move home’ and be truly engaged in the social and community spirit of her own community. It’s easier to establish a role function in our smaller communities and the positive impact of a small community on family life is so special. “The people in the big cities, and most of our elected officials here at the State Capitol don’t witness this slice of rural Minnesota, yet it creates a positive image for our entire state,” Kohls said. Speaking on behalf of the Cooperative Network, the marketing umbrella for both Minnesota and Wisconsin co-ops, Kohls doesn’t sense any particular “anti-co-op” sentiment. The ongoing consolidation trends of both production agriculture and ag business firms he admits at times creates tension but it’s mostly healthy marSee KOHLS, pg. 22A

tions in Minnesota are incredibly responsible “… but there is a growing tendency to think government can regulate us out of every problem. The reality is that if someone is intent to comPaul Kohls mit fraud in the business world, you’re not going to prevent that through regulation,” he said. “You may be able to catch it, but you’re not going to stop it. My biggest concern about the growing regulatory umbrella being dumped on business is the simple fact that ultimately the consumer pays the bill.” When Kohl served in the Minnesota House there were a dozen or more active farmers as legislative members; today that count is only five. “It may be an inevitable decline but I think it presents a challenge. When there is a lack of any industry in the chambers of the state Legislature I think it is a concern. Our citizens are better served if we have a diverse makeup of our legislators.” He suggests a larger concern is the repopulation of Minnesota from farms and rural communities into urban areas or regional centers. “That means fewer legislators are actually living in rural Minnesota and that puts our rural communities at a challenge. Understanding the issues that are unique to rural America is a challenge,” Kohls said.

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Because he was an eight-year state representative, Paul Kohls, now with AgStar Financial Services, is OK discussing Minnesota Legislative activities — or lack thereof. Kohls was one of eight team leaders at the April 2 Day on the Hill for the Minnesota Cooperative Network. In an interview, Kohls retraced his political curiosity which eventually led to his candidacy and election as a state representative. “As a senior in high school I attended my first GOP caucus. I got active in local politics, remained active through college and law school and eventually became a candidate. I believe in a citizen-led legislature which means elected officials should come and go. So after four terms I went back into the private sector full time.” With AgStar, Kohls serves as a general counsel working in legal areas of compliance, government affairs and AgStar Board of Directors issues dealing with governance issues. He definitely believes government is overextending its regulatory function. “There is a need for effective and appropriate regulation,” Kohl said. “But the challenge today is that every time something new gets layered on there are additional costs, burdens and compliance for an organization like AgStar. Ultimately those costs get passed along to consumers.” He feels the majority of organiza-

Farm bill’s snail pace tough on offices and producers By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer With 956 pages, 12 titles and over 460 provisions in the farm bill, it’s little wonder that Farm Service Agency offices, farm insurance firms, ag lenders and farmers are waiting, and waiting. As is said about government legislation, the devil is in the details and never more so than with the Agricultural Act of 2014. Folks who spend time digesting the details are equally upset with the snail’s pace. “They just won’t get all these provisions ironed out this year,” said Dave Ladd, a professional “digout-the-facts” guy who makes regular trips to Washington, D.C., to keep his clients informed. “I don’t know if they’ll ever get this one unraveled. Getting it passed was a long journey full of mine fields. Now getting it implemented is going to take some time. The USDA says by the end of this year. I say that is too ambitious. “They’ll take pieces of it and iron out the details piecemeal ... like the animal disaster program which I understand is now fully implemented. But with the commodity payment provisions, producers are getting anxious about having to make decisions on their 2014 crop. Right now FSA offices have zero details. I think when they start signing up we’ll see a geographic division, so to speak, based on regional crop production. “You have the southern cotton and rice guys on their agenda. And then we central and northern plains producers with our corn, soybeans and wheat issues. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a propor-

The rapidly expanding local food markets and food cooperatives are a good example.” So if the “super cycle” of agriculture is now history, what does that portend for the future of AgStar? “That’s a reality that we do wrestle with. We’re very much aware of this slowdown. These volatile markets have created new risks for our farmer clientele.

Our role is to provide information and service to help them every way we can. We simply know this: When our clients are strong, AgStar is strong.” Why the “warp speed” of this 2014 legislative session? “Partly because the legislature started late and they’re hoping to get out early. I’m not optimistic they will get out early. Also the legislative leadership had a lot on their plates when this session convened so they are pushing hard. Election year politics are under way. A record number of proposed bills in its first month put a tremendous work load on staff and lobbyists,” Kohls said. ❖

dence by the nutrition title, the commodity title and other selected provisions. “But when I started seeing that splitting in the House on the commodity title and the nutrition title, I became aware that maybe future compromises might be more difficult. It makes me wonder how long will some of those memories linger.” So how might Election 2014 affect future positioning of agriculture in Washington, D.C.? Ladd diffused that question by suggesting it’s likely to be more rural America, rural dynamics, rural development and energy that might be struggling for identity. “For example the final ruling on the RFS (Renewable Fuels Standard) is due with a final ruling this June; EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has its policy on navigable waters and what direction Congress will run with this huge issue. There will be a host of other issues aside from the farm bill that I think we’ll see highlighted in this ‘even number’ year,” Ladd said. Ladd was interviewed at the Day on the Hill for Minnesota co-ops on April 2. ❖

Oat diet, excercise put muscle on these big pigs PORK, from pg. 23A the meat. Oats are about 11 percent protein compared with 8 percent for corn. I’m now feeding wheat which is 13 percent to 14 percent protein. When these pigs are young, they get just enough soybean meal to meet their requirements but they soon outgrow that until there’s little or no soybean meal.” Barthel has no more than 30 pigs in a pasture for social reasons. “More than that and they start to pick on each other,” he said, “and you more than likely have a disadvantaged hog in that bunch. Hogs aren’t herd animals like beef and bison. They’re more like people — they look out for themselves; they have friends within the pack. I don’t put them into these pastures however until they are

well-socialized. And if there are any poor doers, I pull those out into a separate pen.” Barthel used to farrow his own pigs but now buys 30- to 35-pound weaners. “I want to make it easy for myself,” he said. “So I buy these 100 or so pigs in April. I purchase out of a confinement system because I want a uniform, quality pig. Unfortunately they have ear tattoos and their tails have been cut off. I nurture them for a few weeks then pull them off the pen feeders and get them on our pastures.” He’s tried a variety of pasture mixes but only had success with canary grass, bluegrass and clovers. He drills in some oats and some peas. He’s tried some rutabagas but found they didn’t work in his soils, which are lighter, trending toward sandy soils. His pigs

pasture on paddocks with heavier soils, however. Erosion simply is not an issue. He steers clear of any pesticides that he might consider as soil contaminants. “So the reality is that what my pigs are eating out there is mostly just the weeds and grassy plants ... and that’s mostly canary grass,” Barthel said. “They’ll shred that ... eat all the greens the first day. If I leave them another day they’re chewing around the roots and anything living under the soil surface. Then they start moonscaping ... that cozy term for pigs rooting into the soil digging and foraging. “I’ll drag those pastures in the fall leveling them off again before drilling the next spring. Hogs don’t need a lot of space. I’m finding that only three acres is enough pasture space for about 30 pigs, but we’ll rotate them through each pasture at least twice each season.” Additional nourishment is an oatfilled self-feeder. “They can eat all they want,” he said, “sort of like eating at a salad bar and because they’re on pasture, they’re getting lots of exercise which just simply leads to better muscle texture and flavor without getting fat.” In order to spread out the marketing season, he started harvesting in October last season and was getting a 280pound hanging weight. But that’s lighter than his preference which is about a 320-pound hanging weight.

That means growing his pigs up to 500 pounds live weight. He said most university literature talks about marketing at 300 pounds live weight for better economics. “But that’s the processor doing the docking on these heavier pigs. It has nothing to do with meat quality and taste,” Barthel said. “Even my local butcher that first year said my 500-pound pigs would be too fat. But they weren’t. They get lots of exercise. That oat diet slows them down so they’re growing muscle rather than fat. And yes, those pork chops are enormous.” Growing pigs based on customer demand conveniently controls inventory. Talking with Barthel in January he said he didn’t yet own any pigs but did have 15 sold already from his newsletter sent out the previous week. “By March I’ll probably have 80 to 90 pigs sold and I still won’t own any. It’s a good way to do a farming business. My customers determine my inventory. I don’t have any left-over hogs at the end of each season.” Quality Meats at Foley, Minn., does the processing for Snake River Farm. As of March 7, Barthel said his customer order spreadsheet indicated 82.5 hogs. Based on past years he predicts orders will total 138 hogs for 2014. Last year Snake River Farm also sold 84 beef, 17 bison and 12 lambs. Barthel may be reached at (763) 2632721 but e-mail is preferred, at snakeriverfarmer@gmail.com. ❖

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles Grain Angles Corn market off Meat markets Costs key to plan with a bang running out of gas development The start of April has seen some changes in the prices of both cattle and hogs. It appears that both markets are beginning to run out of gas on the upside. The hog market has seen a sharp turnaround after setting all-time highs in the first few days of April. There has been a major change in the basis as futures have moved from a large premium to a large discount in a short period of time. The rapid run up in the pork cutout caused many buyers to retreat from chasing the higher prices on the idea that consumers would begin to balk at the higher prices. JOE TEALE Broker In fact the higher the pork cutout advanced the slower the Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. pork movement became. As with any commodity, it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. In other words demand eventually trumps supply. Undoubtedly, the loss of inventory to the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus will still keep supplies less than a year ago and at some point this will bring prices to a halt in the current slide in prices. However the demand for pork has probably been damaged to some degree because of the rapid price increase. It now appears that China is considering restricting the import of U.S. hogs because of the PEDv and this will also hurt demand especially if other countries follow the Chinese lead. All of these factors should concern producers to continue to monitor the market situation and protect inventories as warranted.

On March 31 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released their Prospective plantings report. The report revealed even more than anticipated soybean acres will be planted (81.5 million soybean and 91.7 corn acres). Going back to the USDA’s longterm projections these numbers coincide with the general expectation of soybean acres increasing.

The following market analysis is for the week ending April 4. CORN — The week began with a bang from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Grain Stocks as of March 1 and Prospective Plantings reports. The USDA’s numbers on both reports were surprisingly friendly for corn prices, pushing nearby prices to their highest level since August. Corn stocks were 7.006 billion bushels when 7.099 billion was expected and compared to 5.4 billion bushels last March. On-farm storage holds 55 percent of the corn stocks when last year farmers NYSTROM only held 49 percent of the March PHYLLIS CHS Hedging Inc. 1 stocks. Corn acres were pegged St. Paul at 3.7 million acres less than last year and a five-year low of 91.7 million acres, compared to the pre-report estimate for 92.748 million acres and last year’s 95.365 million planted acres. Total 2014 corn and bean acres of 173.2 million are up just 1.3 million acres from last year’s 171.90 million. Most of the corn to bean switching was noted in North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska. Traders were expecting a 4 million to 5 million acre corn-bean increase. Based on Conservation Reserve Program acres (1.5 million acres) and prevent-plant acres that are expected to return to production, the trade believes the planted acreage numbers could rise on subsequent USDA reports. It doesn’t seem that we have rationed corn yet. Corn inspections (corn that has actually been

It seems like just a few short weeks ago, I was working with producers and their crop budgets to try to find a positive margin for the upcoming 2014 year. Producers were also concerned the grain they had in storage was at risk of the price falling further. Knowing our costs is the key to developing a plan of action. Having a plan can help reduce stress and allows time to focus on other crucial areas of the farm. I talk extensively with my clients about taking advantage of pricing opportunities when the market increases. In simple terms, this strategy is called “rewarding the rally.” Demand The renewed demand for our crops is definitely

Soybean report numbers not as friendly as corn NYSTROM, from pg. 25A shipped) for the week were 52.3 million when we only need to ship 31.1 million per week to reach the USDA 1.625 billion bushel export forecast. Weekly export sales were 37.8 million bushels, much higher than the 2.2 million needed to hit the USDA forecast (assuming 50 million bushels are carried into next year). Total corn export commitments of 1.627 billion bushels have now met the USDA export forecast of 1.625 billion bushel projection with 22 weeks left in the marketing year. China once again did not approve MIR162 at their bio-safety meeting. The next review won’t be until June. They have rejected nearly 1 million metric tons of U.S. corn since November. China doesn’t need the corn after yesterday’s weekly sales report included a 221,000 mt cancellation by China and they still have approximately 1.1 mmt of unshipped U.S. corn on the books. There was trade chatter during the week that China may suspend dried distillers grains imports. Ethanol’s rampage higher came to a screeching halt this week when the weekly production and stocks numbers were higher. Weekly production was up 37,000 barrels per day to 922,000 barrels per day, the highest rate since December. Stocks were up 200,000 at 15.9 million gallons. There were unconfirmed rumors that Brazilian ethanol was headed toward U.S. shores. May ethanol crashed 59 1/2 cents per gallon from Tuesday’s high to Thursday’s low before stabilizing. Improving railcar movement also contributed to the slide in ethanol prices. OUTLOOK: Nearby corn traded to a

seven-month high this week in post-report trading, but expectations will now turn toward sideways/consolidating type trade. May corn gained 9 3/4 cents to close at $5.01 3/4 per bushel. New crop prices should be well supported if rain/snow keeps planters from rolling, but when the weather clears pressure should come to bear. December corn rallied 19 1/2 cents higher to close at $5.06 3/4 per bushel. The USDA did not have any new sales or cancellations in their daily announcements this week. Weather will be the focus of traders’ attention in the coming weeks. The April USDA balance sheets will be released on April 9. SOYBEANS — The soybean numbers on March 31 reports were not as friendly as in corn. Bean stocks on March 1 were 992 million bushels, just 3 million bushels higher than the 989 million bushel estimate. On March 1, 2013, there were 998 million bean bushels in storage, the lowest since 2004. On-farm soybean stocks are the smallest in 10 years at just 38.5 percent of the total stocks. Soybean acres for 2014 were projected at a record 81.5 million, up from last year’s 76.533 million and higher than the 81.075 million acres projection. Complete rationing is still eluding the soybean market. Weekly export inspections were 18.6 million when only 1.7 million per week are needed to achieve the USDA export projection of 1.53 billion bushels. Weekly export sales for soybeans were 2.4 million bushels. This is more than adequate since we already have 1.635 billion bushels on the books and the USDA is only projecting yearly

Demand key to cattle TEALE, from pg. 25A The cattle market is continuing to find resistance at higher prices like the hogs. The beef cutout appears to have doubled, topped above the $140 per hundredweight level basis choice and dropped quickly from this area. The boxed beef movement has continued to decline each time the cutout moves higher suggesting strong retailer resistance to the higher prices. The packer has been forced to pay higher live prices to capture live inventory which has for the most part kept his margins in the red.

sales of 1.53 billion bushels. If all the sales to unknown were canceled today, approximately 40.4 million bushels, our sales would still be over the current USDA figure. Also a headline this week were the meal export sales, which tied for the second strongest of the marketing year. They were extremely impressive at 307,800 mt. Sales of only 57,000 mt are needed per week to meet the USDA estimate. Basis levels in South America eroded throughout the week on both soybeans and meal. Argentine beans and meal work into the United States and reportedly cargoes of both are headed into the Gulf, East Coast and Alabama (meal for poultry feeders). Traders estimate that up to 25 to 30 bean cargoes out of South America have been sold into the United States. A Brazilian soybean boat for China was resold to South Africa as China diverts, delays and cancels soybean cargoes. Trade estimates put China’s cancellations of South American beans at 600,000 mt. Meal imports should also be monitored for signs of rationing. Chatter from the Southeast indicates feeders may be covered on meal through the summer. OUTLOOK: Soybean and meal

MARKETING

With demand slowing and inventories building in the cooler, the packer has had to cut prices to move the boxed beef inventories. With the pork cut out falling and the price of chicken remaining fairly steady well below beef and pork per pound, the outlook for beef prices remaining high are diminishing. Once again, demand is the key to the cattle as with all commodities, despite the fact that live inventories are less than in previous years. Therefore, producers should remain cognizant of market conditions and protect inventories as needed. ❖

imports are headed to the United States, but will they be large enough and arrive soon enough to totally break the May-July inverse? May soybeans hit a new contract high this week at $14.96 per bushel; they closed 37 1/4 cents higher at $14.73 3/4 per bushel. New crop November beans were up 18 cents at $12.08 1/2 per bushel. Support in the May soybeans moved up to $14.50 per bushel, with resistance at $15 per bushel. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending April 4: Chicago May wheat tumbled 25 3/4 cents lower, Minneapolis was 18 1/4 cents lower and Kansas City was the loss leader at $7.33 3/4, down 29 3/4 cents per bushel. May crude oil closed down 53 cents for the week, ultra-low-sulfur diesel fell 4 cents, gasoline eased just 1/2 cent lower and natural gas declined 4 1/2 cents.

Market changes mind quickly WACHTLER, from pg. 25A good news over the medium- to longterm for our prices. However, experience tells us, even when the fundamentals of the market are in our favor, there still may be extended periods that will move the market in the opposite direction. In my opinion, we still need to have the mindset to “reward the rally,” especially with respect to new crop 2014 corn. I have worked with some producers who are starting to sell the 2015 corn crop in incremental amounts. The incremental sales approach during these market rallies is one of the basics of grain marketing and an acceptable strategy for the market we are currently experiencing. Weather Weather markets can be more volatile and the opportunities presented can be gained or lost quickly. Changes in the weather and markets beget us to think through well-defined tactical plans for the short run. The

recent weather concerns may be the best opportunity that producers with stored grain will realize. Most farmers need to move this corn in the next few months and there may not be enough time to wait for opportunities that are “down the road.” A shorter time frame means producers may need to be responsive with a larger portion of grain sales from their bins. Just like the weather, the market can change its mind quickly and being prepared for that change is the best tactic. Wachtler is also a member of the AgStar Grain Industry Team.

Following are some points to consider for Custom Farming Agreement. • The Custom Farming Agreement should specify the payment amount per acre that the landowner will pay the custom operator, and should list the payment dates. • There needs to be an accurate count on the number of acres that will be under the Custom Farming Agreement for payment purposes, and so that the farmer can accurately plan tillage, planting and harvesting schedules. • The normal field practices to be included under the Custom Farming Agreement should be listed (tillage, planting, weed control, harvesting, etc.). Typically, these agreed upon practices are part of the per acre custom farming payment for the year that is negotiated between the custom operator and the landowner. • Additional tillage trips or replanting due to weather conditions, or added spraying applications of pesticides to control weeds, insects or diseases, which are provided by the custom operator, are usually charged to the landowner at a custom rate per acre that is over and above the base custom farming rate. • Timing of planting and harvesting operations should be discussed and negotiated between the custom operator and the landowner prior to the growing season. This can become a tenuous issue, especially in years with challenging weather conditions. • The custom operator may be asked for advice by the landowner regarding the seed corn hybrid or soybean variety to plant, fertilizer rates, chemical applications, levels of crop insurance coverage or grain marketing decisions. However, the final deci-

wise specified. The average price for diesel fuel was assumed to be $3.25 per gallon. A fuel price increase of $0.50 per gallon would cause most custom rates to increase by approximately 5 percent. These average rates are only meant to be a guide for custom rates, as actual custom rates charged may vary depending on continued increase in fuel costs, availability of custom operators, timeliness, field size, etc. Custom farming agreements An alternative to leasing farmland is a “Custom Farming Agreement.” In a typical Custom Farming Agreement, the custom operator agrees to perform all the machine operations on the owner’s land in exchange for a set fee or rate. Note: Average custom farming rates for 2014 are listed in the 2014 Custom Rate Survey Table on Page 29A.) The landowner pays for all seed, fertilizer, chemicals, crop insurance and other input costs; receives all the grain produced, as well as all eligible farm program payments on the land; and is responsible to store and market the grain. One obvious advantage to the custom operator is that a Custom Farming Agreement provides some extra farm income, with little or no additional operating capital or farm machinery investment. Fuel, lubrication and repairs are usually the only added costs. In addition, custom farming offers a fixed return per acre to the custom operator, and although there is some possibility of higher repair bills, this is minor compared with the price and yield risks typically faced by a farmer in a normal cash rental contract. Of course, in a good year, profits from a Custom Farming Agreement will be lower than under most cash rental leases; however, in this era of much higher land rental rates there is much more risk to the farmer with a cash lease, as compared to a custom agreement with a landowner. Landowners also find several advantages to a Custom Farming Agreement. Landowners with small acreages can make most of the crop production and grain marketing decisions without the investment into a full-line of farm machinery. The landowner does not have to negotiate land rental rates, or worry about collecting lease payments, since the owner receives all of the crop proceeds. The landowner does have to pay the farmer an agreed upon per acre fee for the custom farming services by specified dates. The landowner is considered to be the material participant for income tax purposes, and the landowner is typically entitled to all government farm program payments, crop insurance indemnity payments, etc. Key issues with custom farming agreements Although the concept of a Custom Farming Agreement is simple, close communication between the custom operator and the landowner is essential. A written contract for the Custom Farming Agreement should definitely be prepared that specifies the amount of payment by the landowner to the custom operator, and all other pertinent details.

Due to the high cost of investment in farm machinery, an ever-increasing number of farmers are hiring other farmers to provide some or all of their machinery resources for their farm operation. This is especially true with new and younger farmers, and with children who decide to start farming with their parFARM PROGRAMS ents. Also, some land investors By Kent Thiesse are choosing to operate the farm themselves rather than cash renting the land another farmer. In that case, the landowner is generally hiring a farmer to provide necessary tillage, planting and harvesting crop operations under a custom farming agreement. Some farmers also hire specific farm operations through a custom arrangement with another farmer, such as combining or hay baling. Many farmers negotiate these types of custom rate and custom farming arrangements in the spring of the year. Custom rates increasing As has been the trend in recent years, average 2014 custom rates for farm work are likely to show a small increase, compared to 2013 custom rates. Most custom rates for farm work in 2014 are listed at 4 to 7 percent above the rates for similar operations in 2013, with an average increase of about 5 percent. Fuel costs have remained fairly stable; however, increasing cost for new and used machinery, along with rising repair and labor expenses, are also factors in the higher custom rates. These results are based on the annual “Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey” that is coordinated and analyzed by Iowa State University. The survey sampled 195 custom operators, farm managers and ag lenders on what they expected 2014 custom farm rates to be for various farm operations. The survey summary lists the average custom rate and the range for various tillage, planting, fertilizer and chemical application, grain harvesting, and forage harvesting functions on the farm. The survey also includes many miscellaneous farming practices, lists average machine rental rates for some equipment, and includes a formula for estimating average machinery rental rates. The survey also lists average custom farming rates for corn, soybeans and wheat. Over the years, the average custom rates for farm operations in southern and western Minnesota has been close to the average Iowa custom rates. 2014 custom rates Average 2014 farm custom rates for some typical tillage, planting and harvesting practices, as well as custom farming rates, are listed in the adjoining table.

Quality soil analysis starts with a quality sample Soil test analysis data collected from a field can be no better than the sample. Therefore, proper collection of the soil sample is extremely important. Representative samples are as important to get good data back for those farming thousands of acres to those planting the home garden. Soil tests can be submitted to a private soil testing lab or they can be submitted to the University of Minnesota Soil Testing Laboratory. Many local county Extension offices have the submission forms and soil testing bags. Informational sheets are listed on the U of M Soil Laboratory website — http://soiltest.cfans.umn.edu — or you can directly contact the laboratory at (612) 625-3101. Soil test data can provide data that indicates soil fertility, pH and organic matter. Fertilizer recommendations are made corresponding to the soil

test data. Common tests include phosphorus, potassium, organic matter and pH. requirements. The most common fertilizer used for a fertility program is nitrogen. Nitrogen is not tested for as often with a soil test due to nitrogen’s ever-changing chemical forms in the soil. Start by dividing the field into areas that have the same soil color and texture, cropping history, and fertilizer, lime and manure treatments. On farmland and acreages, use of soil survey maps that indicate soil types, slope phase and erosion phase are useful because organic matter, nutrient levels and soil pH can vary following these map units. One sample should not represent more than 20 acres on level, uniform landscapes, or 5 acres on hilly or rolling land. Soil sampling using an intensive grid pattern of at least 2.5 acres in size is another option for growers working with a crop consult-

ant or agricultural professional. Sample each area for composite samples, which means you are pulling a large amount of samples and then you will condense. Within each area collect 15 to 30 sub samples (cores, borings or spade slices) in a zigzag pattern throughout the designated field area. The more variable the soil, the more sub samples should be combined per area sampled. Scrape off all surface residues from the sub sample site. Sample the soil to a depth of 6 to 8 inches (plow layer) for cultivated crops, or 3 inches for pasture, lawns or sod fields. Sample row crop fields between rows, except for ridge till plantings. Also avoid sampling dead or back furrows, terraces, old fence rows, lime or fertilizer spill areas, headlands, eroded knolls, low spots, or small saline areas. Sample at least 300 feet away from gravel or crushed limestone roads because their dust changes soil pH.

Mix the sub samples thoroughly in a clean plastic pail, and fill the sample box or bag to the fill line (1 pint). If the samples must be taken wet, they should be dried before being mixed and submitted to the laboratory. Do not exceed a drying temperature of 97 F, and do not use a microwave unless only the nitrate test is requested. While different soil testing laboratories may offer different soil test options the procedures for conducting the actual tests tend to be similar. Contact the McLeod County Extension at (320) 484-4303 or Meeker County Extension at (320) 693-5275 for availability of submission forms, sample bags and soil testing interpretations.

“The full extent of this has not been felt by crop producers yet,” said Ron Dvergsten, Farm Business Management instructor-program coordinator at Northland Community & Technical College in Thief River Falls. “Cash flow was not a problem through much of the year as producers sold 2012 crop at high prices. Most of the decrease shows up in the reduced value of inventories at the end of the year. That means cash flows for 2014 are really tight. At current prices, many producers will lose money on cash rented land in the coming year.” Feed factors reduce livestock profits Livestock farms faced high feed costs for much of the year; feed prices did not decline substantially until harvest. While the price of milk, pork and beef were all up from the previous year, the combination of high feed costs and lower values of feed inventories reduced livestock farm profits. Milk sold for $20.34 per hundredweight compared to $19.63 in 2012. With a cost of production of $19.92, dairy farmers made 42 cents on every hundred pounds produced or about 5 cents per gallon on average. Market hog prices increased from $63 per hundred pounds in 2012 to $66 in 2013. Market beef prices increased from $122 per hundredweight in 2012 to $125 in 2013. Prospects for livestock producers are better for the coming year. After several years of high feed costs that benefited crop producers, the tables will likely be turned in 2014.

“Prices are projected to be strong for all major livestock sectors this year,” Nordquist said. “And feed costs will be much lower so livestock producers should have a very good year.” The one wildcard for pork producers is the spread of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. While the virus is not transferred to humans, it can be devastating to pig herds and cause severe financial consequences. 2014: Tighter margins ahead Crop producers will see much tighter margins in 2014. “The good thing is that most crop producers come in to the year with very strong working capital positions,” Dvergsten said. “Another plus is that fertilizer prices are down. But other costs, including land rent, are projected to increase. It is likely that many crop producers will have to use some of their working capital to cover losses in the coming year.” The statewide results are compiled by the Center for Farm Financial Management into the FINBIN database which can be queried at www.finbin.umn.edu. 2013 regional reports and reports from previous years can be found on the MnSCU Farm Business Management website at www.fbm.mnscu.edu.

As corn prices declined in the fall of 2013, so did farm incomes for a majority of Minnesota farms, according to a joint analysis conducted by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, and University of Minnesota Extension. Overall, net farm income was $41,899 for the median farm. That compares to $189,679 in 2012, a 78-percent decrease. While crop farm incomes plummeted due to declining commodity prices, livestock farms did not fare much better as incomes for dairy, hog and beef farms also declined. The analysis used data from 2,063 participants in MnSCU farm business management education programs, 111 members of the Southwest Minnesota Farm Business Management Association and 41 participants working with private consultants. “A decline from 2012 levels should not come as a big surprise. We have to remember where we came from,” said Dale Nordquist, Extension economist in the University of Minnesota Center for Farm Financial Management. “2012 was a very profitable year for Minnesota farms. Land rental rates have been catching up with the increased profitability of crop production. Most crop producers were in pretty good shape to handle a down year. The question is how long will these reduced profits last?” Dramatic drops in crop prices Corn and soybean prices dropped dramatically. Net return per acre of corn dropped from $377 in 2012 to minus $24 in 2013. Soybeans went from $216 net return per acre in 2012 to $85 in 2013. The price of sugar beets dropped from $65 a ton to $35. Sugar beet producers lost an average of $300 per acre in the Red River Valley and west central Minnesota. Price was not the only factor that led to reduced profits for crop producers. Yields were down due to a cold, wet spring followed by developing drought conditions in parts of the state. The statewide average yield for corn was 160 bushels per acre compared to 171 in 2012, below the 10-year average of 167 bushels. Soybean yields were down from 46 to 42 bushels per acre. Meanwhile, the cost to grow an acre of corn increased by 10 percent. Land rental rates increased by 15 percent for corn production.

Minnesota farm families could get property tax relief By STEVE KARNOWSKI Associated Press Most Minnesota farm families would get an extra $260 in property tax relief per year under legislation that’s meant to ease the squeeze they’re feeling between rising property taxes and falling crop prices. The proposal would tap the state’s budget surplus for $18 million to help more than 90,000 homesteaded farms. It’s part of a larger property tax bill the Minnesota House passed April 4. Farmland values have shot up in recent years across Minnesota and other states in response to high prices for corn and other crops. Because property taxes are based on the value of the land, they’ve shot up too. But lower corn prices in 2013 caused a 78-percent drop in Minnesota farm income last year, according to a recent report from the Min-

nesota State Colleges and Universities system and University of Minnesota Extension. The report also predicted another down year for crop farmers in 2014. While farm income has fallen, farmland valuations haven’t so far, said Rep. Jim Davnie, DFL-Minneapolis, chairman of the House property tax division and author of the bill. “It’s a welcome relief,” said Thom Peterson, director of governmental relations for the Minnesota Farmers Union. Given that income is expected to fall while costs such as land rents

and fertilizer remain high, he said, any break is helpful. Most Minnesota farmers would get the first installment in a $230 check in October. Davnie said that’s similar to property tax refund checks that renters and homeowners already get. In future years $260 in new relief would be built into property tax bills, added to an existing $230 agricultural homestead credit for a total of $490 in relief. Some smaller operations wouldn’t get as much of a break. The proposal came from Rep. Paul Marquart, DFL-Dilworth, who said farmers missed out last year when lawmakers lowered property taxes for rural Minnesota homeowners and businesses. Farmers’ property tax rates went up statewide by about 11 percent, he said, mainly because their property values went up 25 percent. “There is a very legitimate need for this property tax relief,” Marquart said. The tax break would be welcome to Tim Velde, who grows corn and soybeans near Granite Falls. His property taxes went up by 37 percent last year alone. Velde said he and his son own about a third of the 2,000 acres they

farm in Yellow Medicine County in western Minnesota. Property taxes get built into the rent they pay for the rest of the land. They pay about $37.40 per acre on what they own, he said, so multiply that by 2,000 acres and it works out to close to $75,000. Velde said he told Gov. Mark Dayton during a recent Minnesota Farmers Union lobbying day at the Capitol that his property taxes have nearly quadrupled since 2008 while the valuation on his land rose 277 percent. “I told him if my taxes had gone up by only 277 percent I would have been happy,” Velde said. Rep. Paul Torkelson of Hanska, the lead Republican on the property tax panel, said he’s concerned that the state will incur extra costs from mailing out the refund checks but he didn’t plan to seek to delay implementing the relief until next year when it could be done just with software changes. “It’s nice to see Democrats lower taxes. We’re all for that. Keep it up,” Torkelson said. It’s not clear if there will be a similar provision in the Senate’s property tax relief bill, which has not been released yet. The Senate tax committee chairman, Sen. Rod Skoe, DFL-Clearbrook, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. But Davnie said he thinks the proposal or something similar has a “better than even chance of making it to the governor’s desk” as part of the final legislation. ❖

grain stays cool until we are ready to get serious about drying it. It can also be helpful to know that air at 50-percent relative humidity and 30 F can take corn moisture down to 13.9 percent; at 40 F down to 13.1 percent; at 50 F to 12.5 percent. The goal is also to avoid over-drying the grain. Keeping

40 F; and only 30 days at 50 F. Light test weight, kernel damage and foreign material reduce safe storage potential. The cost of high-temperature drying per point of moisture removed using a moderately efficient dryer can be estimated by multiplying the propane price per gallon by 0.02. For example, the estimated cost per percentage point per bushel of drying with propane at $2.60 per gallon is 5 cents. To remove 8 points of moisture would cost about 40 cents per bushel for propane. Obtain the most energy-efficient drying by operating the dryer at the highest temperature that will not damage the corn. For natural air-drying, assure that the airflow rate the fan supplies is at least 1 cubic foot per minute per bushel and the initial corn moisture does not exceed 21 percent. Due to the higher propane price or lack of a high-temperature dryer, farmers may want to air-dry wetter corn. Corn at 23-percent moisture requires an airflow rate of at least 1.5 cfm/bu., which is not feasible in a full bin. If a bin is sized to provide an airflow rate of 1 cfm/bu., only fill the bin about three-fourths full to obtain an airflow rate of about 1.5 cfm/bu., which will permit air-drying corn at moisture contents up to 23 percent. For example, fill a bin to no more than 16 feet, rather than 22 feet. The Minnesota Extension Publication for “Natural Air Corn Drying” offers these guidelines. • If the corn at the top of the bin is 19- to 21-percent moisture, run the fan continuously starting about March 15 until the corn is dry. • For 17- to 19-percent corn, run the fan continuously starting about April 1. • For corn less than 17-percent moisture, to dry to 14 percent or less, run the fan continuously starting about April 15. If you aim for 15 percent, turn the fan off during the warmest, driest weather or the corn will get too dry. The goal is to get the grain dry before it warms up enough in the spring to start spoiling faster than you can get it dry. These dates are based on having average daily temperatures of about 40 F.

It’s time to take a close look at spring grain care, if you haven’t started already. In 2013, a late spring led to wet soybeans and corn at harvest time; and propane supplies became short in the fall. Some soybeans and corn were not dried completely in the fall with the goal of keeping the crop cold and to finish drying in the spring. The cold winter makes a cold grain mass. Warmer, more humid spring weather can create condensation on the surface of the grain and on bin walls. Most of the following discussion is from North Dakota State University Extension grain storage specialist Ken Hellevang and circulated in Minnesota by Regional Extension Educator Dave Nicolai. The stored grain temperature increases in the spring due to an increase in outdoor temperatures and solar heat gain on the bin. Solar energy produces more than twice as much heat gain on the south wall of a bin in early spring as it does during the summer. Periodically run aeration fans to keep the grain temperature below 30 F until the grain is dried if it exceeds recommended storage moisture levels; and below 40 F during the spring if it is dry. Grain should be checked every two weeks during the spring and summer for temperature, moisture and any signs of spoilage or insect problems. Check the moisture content of stored grain to determine if it needs to be dried. Adjust moisture meter readings for grain temperature based on the meter’s directions. Moisture measurements of grain at less than 40 F may not be accurate. Verify the accuracy of the measurement by warming the grain sample to room temperature in a sealed plastic bag before measuring the moisture content. Corn should be dried to 13 to 14 percent moisture for summer storage. Soybeans should be dried to 11 percent, wheat 13 percent, barley 12 percent and oil sunflowers 8 percent. Corn above 21-percent moisture should be dried in a high-temperature dryer because it can spoil faster than it dries with natural air drying at warmer temperatures. Corn might be stored safely at 22-percent moisture for about 190 days at 30 F; 60 days at

115-year-old John Deere dealership to close By TIM KROHN Mankato Free Press Zins Implement, tied as the oldest John Deere dealership in the world, is closing this summer, part of a trend toward larger consol- Kurt Zins idated dealerships. “You have a heavy heart thinking of it closing after so long as a family business,” said Kurt Zins, among the fourth generation to operate the dealership. “But I don’t see it as an ending to our store, but a consolidation. With the ag climate the way it is and farmers getting bigger and bigger and farther between — it’s the same with the implement dealers.” Gilsinger John Deere, in Winimac, Ind., bills itself as the oldest John Deere dealership in the world, starting in 1899. John C. Zins opened a general store in Nicollet, Minn., in 1892 and got its first John Deere contract in 1899, the same year as Gilsinger. Zins Implement has been operating as Kibble Equipment since it merged with Kibble in 2006. Kibble has dealerships in a dozen locations, including Mankato, Nicollet, New Ulm and Sleepy Eye. Butch Kibble said that with fewer farmers and facilities relatively close together, closing the smaller Nicollet shop was inevitable. “To provide the level of service we need to today and to have the work for our employees, we need the facilities that have the size and scope. The days of having the Nicollet-sized stores is actually long gone,” Kibble said.

“It’s not a great day when you have to do it, but we have good employees in Nicollet and rather than watch this just fade away, we thought we could keep them working and created the economy of scale and customer service we need to deliver.” The goal is to have the 10 employees working in Nicollet move to other Kibble dealerships. Soon after opening his general store, John C. Zins began expanding into well drilling, plumbing, buying and selling livestock and selling farm equipment. While Zins got his first contract with Deere and Co. in 1899, it was 19 years later that Deere purchased the Waterloo Gasoline Traction Engine Co. in Waterloo, Iowa, and tractors became part of the John Deere line. John C. died in 1927. Ed Zins, and his uncle, George Zins, bought out John’s wife, Lena, to continue the business. Ed Zins’ son, Paul, began working at Zins Implement in 1967 when he was 29. Just a couple of months after he returned to Zins Implement, his father was killed in a car accident. In 2002, Paul decided to semi-retire. His sons, Paul Mike and Kurt, began taking over the business and continue there today. In 1979 they moved out of their original downtown location and opened on the north edge of town. The original building remains. Kurt Zins said one of the biggest changes in the business has been the sheer size of the equipment and their computerized complexity.

than 6 percent. Stockpiling also requires following setback requirements and some common sense. A setback distance of 300 feet is required for most sensitive areas such as wetlands, road ditches and tile intakes; a 1,000-foot setback is required from most lakes, streams and community water supplies. Stockpiling setback requirements can vary between counties so contact your county feedlot officer or Soil and Water Conservation District staff. Manure properly stockpiled, later applied on unfrozen ground, and incorporated within 12 hours will typically have higher nutrient content than manure spread on frozen ground, on an ice layer on soil or snow, on deep hard-packed snow, or close to a snowmelt event. Is a temporary stockpile the best solution to application of manure rather than applying the manure over frozen ground? No, but it is one option to consider. Get the maximum economic return from the manure nutrients while also protecting the environment by waiting until the ground has thawed to apply manure.

It’s a lot more sophisticated. The mechanics have to be good fix-it guys and computer guys, too.” Kibble Equipment has been expanding in southern Minnesota in recent years.

ble phosphorus to dissolve with the water and potentially run off into the environment. However, when quickly incorporated into the soil after spreading the manure, the soluble phosphorus rapidly attaches to the soil. Once attached, it will essentially only leave the field by plant uptake or with the soil through erosion. Nitrogen In general, faster and better manure incorporation means higher nitrogen availability for crops and better economic return from the manure nutrients. When manure is left on the soil surface, most of the nitrogen in ammonia form is lost through volatilization. Many of the organic manure nitrogen compounds are soluble in water and are subject to spring runoff or a rain event, which becomes a contributing factor in eutrophication. Construction of a long-term storage manure pit is a common method of facilitating spring application and incorporation of manure after the snowmelt and ground thaw on a farm. Pumping the pit in the spring and/or fall and incorporating it into the soil immediately or within 12 hours produces maximum economic return from the manure nutrients while also protecting the environment. What if a farmer has no pit or has manure packs that can’t be added to an existing manure pit? Temporary manure stockpiling is an option approved for most manure management plans. According to Minnesota feedlot rules, a temporary stockpile must not be in a single location for more than one year and is not allowed on slopes greater

Application of manure on frozen ground almost guarantees economic loss on the value of manure while also potentially harming the environment. Phosphorus and nitrogen in manure can have negative effects in the environment when in excess. Phosphorus Excess phosphorus entering our Minnesota lakes, rivers and streams contributes to eutrophication, which is rapid growth of plant life. This excess plant life eventually dies, and the decaying material causes an oxygen shortage for desirable fish and plant life. We typically observe eutrophication as algae blooms. A high percentage of the phosphorus in manure is soluble. There is a high environmental risk when this soluble phosphorus is allowed to remain on top of the soil. Phosphorus runoff risk increases with frozen ground, an ice layer on the soil or snow, deep hard-packed snow and manure applied closer to snowmelt. A snowmelt or rain event allows this solu-

U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced the extension of the Milk Income Loss Contract program. The extended MILC protects dairy farmers enrolled in the program against income loss through Sept. 1, or until a new Margin Protection Program for dairy producers, established by the 2014 farm bill, is operational. Contracts for eligible producers enrolled in MILC on or before Sept. 30, 2013, are automatically extended until the termination date of the MILC program. Dairy operations with approved MILC contracts will continue to receive monthly payments if a payment rate is in effect. MILC compensates enrolled dairy producers when the Boston Class I milk price falls below $16.94 per hundredweight, after adjustment for the cost of dairy feed rations. MILC payments are calculated each month using the latest milk price and feed cost, just as in the 2008 farm bill. The payment rate for October 2013 through January 2014 marketings is zero. Payment rates during the months after January until the termination of the MILC program will be determined as the appropriate data becomes available. Since MILC payments are limited to a maximum amount of milk production each fiscal year, dairy operations may select a production start month other than October 2013 (the start of fiscal year 2014). Producers who want to select a different production start month must visit their local FSA office between April 14 and May 30. The FSA will provide producers with information on program requirements, updates and sign-ups as the information becomes available. For more information on MILC, contact a local FSA county office or log on to the FSA website at www.fsa.usda.gov. ❖

Booming oil industry blamed for transportation costs MIELKE, from pg. 36A is not reflected in the income-over-feed calculation, as it has little effect on the prices farmers receive for their corn or soybeans.

The booming oil industry is largely to blame for the rise in transportation costs. Rail cars in the United States and Canada are in short supply because they have been commandeered to transport oil from the heartland to refineries on the coasts.

The Leader In Feeders! Famous for minimum feed waste!

There are simply not enough pipelines. With fewer rail cars available, a greater share of the feed supply depends on the trucking industry. However, the oil industry is also using more trucks to haul materials to the oilfields. These issues have slowed the flow of Canada’s record-large canola crop, which is only slowly trickling into the United States, despite a pronounced shortage of oilseeds here. Weather is also a factor. Winter has been harsh, and snow and ice have slowed the flow of trucks and barges throughout the country. When feed finally arrives at dairies around the country, it comes with a higher transportation mark-up, and it may not have arrived on time, which represents an indirect cost to dairy producers who depend on consistent feed rations, the DDR said. ■ Cash cheese prices saw further declines the first week of April although there was a late “April Fools” on Thursday when the blocks reversed gears and jumped 3.75 cents only to plunge the next day. Many traders expected spot prices to crash once cheese started showing up at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange but that didn’t happen. At any rate, the Cheddar blocks closed Friday at $2.35/lb., down 3.5 cents on the week but still 58.75 cents above a year ago. The barrels closed at $2.2250, down 6.5 cents on the week, 53.25 cents above a year ago, but an unsustainable 12.5 cents below the blocks. One car of block and three of barrel were sold this week. The lagging NDPSR-surveyed U.S. average block price averaged $2.3450, up 8.1 cents. Barrel averaged $2.3216, up 4.1 cents. Cheese production is building slowly as milk supplies increase toward the spring flush, according to the USDA’s Dairy Market News. Current production levels are increasing slower than many manufacturers had hoped for. Advance export sales continue to draw inventory away from domestic sales. Domestic cheese demand is good despite high prices. Cash butter took a turn downward this week, closing Friday at $1.97/lb., down 3 cents on the week but still 26 cents above a year ago. Twelve cars traded hands on the week. NDPSR butter averaged $1.8989, up 4.9 cents. Butter prices are steady to higher on strong seasonal demand and good export orders. The market tone is firm as butter manufacturers finish Easter-Passover retail orders. Production rates are mixed among the regions as cream supplies tighten and cream prices increase.

■ Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk ended the week at $1.9975, down 3.25 cents on the week. One car was sold. NDPSR powder averaged $2.0734, down 1.3 cents, and dry whey averaged 66.72 cents, up 1.3 cents and the highest since December 2012. The highest dry whey price occurred in April 2007 at 79.33 cents/lb. ■ This week’s Global Dairy Trade auction saw the weighted average for all products drop 8.9 percent, following a 5.2 percent drop in the March 18 event, and a 4 percent drop in the March 4 event. The price index has seen declines since reaching its recent high Feb. 4. The downfall was led by a 15-percent plunge in buttermilk powder, an 11.3-percent drop in anhydrous milkfat and an 11-percent fall in butter. Whole milk powder was down 8.4 percent and Cheddar cheese was down 3.5 percent. FC Stone reports the average butter price equated to about $1.8325/lb., down from $2.0567/lb. in the March 18 event ($1.7878/lb. on 80-percent butterfat, down from $2.0065/lb.). Friday’s CME butter price closed at $1.97/lb. The GDT Cheddar cheese average was $2.0130/lb., down from $2.1052. The CME block price closed Friday at $2.35/lb. GDT skim milk powder, at $1.8715/lb., is down from $2.0792, and the whole milk powder average was $1.8293, down from $2.0136 in the last event. The CME Grade A nonfat dry milk price Friday stood at $1.9975/lb. ■ Cooperatives Working Together accepted 47 requests for export assistance this week to sell 7.04 million pounds of cheese, 13.93 million pounds of 82 percent butter and 485,017 pounds of whole milk powder to customers in Asia, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the South Pacific. The product will be delivered through September and raises the CWT’s 2014 cheese export sales to 36.34 million pounds plus 29.42 million pounds of butter and 3.37 million pounds of whole milk powder to 27 countries on five continents. The CWT’s Jim Tillison said he’s not sure 47 requests is a record but what’s most impressive is the number of new players involved in the export market. ■ February milk production was up 1.4 percent compared to a year ago, according to the USDA’s preliminary estimate, and this week’s Dairy Products report shows where it went. Butter production totaled 166 million pounds, down 9.1 percent from January See MIELKE, pg. 39A

where hay prices are heading. “Three hundred dollars per ton is not out of line,” he said on DairyLine Radio. “If California stays this dry, that could be the impact.” California is a big enough player that most of the hay that leaves Utah and Nevada is probably going into California, either directly to exports or into the dairy industry to supplant hay that’s leaving the Golden State. Most of Arizona’s hay is under irrigation from the Colorado River. “I don’t think they’re going to be as short as California, so their production should still be up,” he said. “But again, California is a big player in the hay market and if you drastically reduce one of the major players then you are going to have a shock that’s going to be felt across the western states.” While hay producers may be fine with it, it could have an impact on many dairy

The NMPF made the request in two sets of comments, one focused on dairy plant safety and the other addressing animal feed. In separate comments submitted jointly with the International Dairy Foods Association, the NMPF also identified unnecessary and duplicative requirements for dairy processing plants which may divert some food production materials such as cheese trim and liquid whey to animal feed. These plants are already subject to Food Safety Modernization Act requirements for human food production. Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

n 1890, Diamond Lake Lutheran Church was built to serve a population of Danish settlers. Situated in Lincoln County a few miles north of Lake Benton, Minn., over time the campus grew to include the church building on the north, a parsonage, garage and parish hall on the south, and the cemetery in between. In 1969, Diamond Lake Lutheran merged with English Lutheran Church in Lake Benton to form Grace Lutheran Church, located in Lake Benton. But with loved ones buried there and memories still much alive, the Diamond Lake buildings (except for the parsonage, which was moved) were maintained and used occasionally, for evening services, a funeral or a gathering. By 2012 the buildings had stood for

well over a century. The roof of the church building demanded attention. Facing expensive repairs, the congregation decided not to walk away from what had become a community landmark. They embarked on a renovation project. On Sept. 23, 2013, a Service of Renewal was celebrated. Through generous donations by third-, fourth- and fifth-generation members of the founders of Diamond Lake, matching funds

from the bequest fund of Grace Lutheran Church, and contributions from others, they did more than repair the roof. Both the church building and the parish hall received a new roof, new siding and new windows. The church building’s front steps were replaced with a concrete ramp, and the garage was transformed into a picnic shelter. The pressed tin ceiling and old wood altar with its statue of Christ are now secure within a solid frame. Referred to as Diamond Lake Chapel, Winds of the Prairie Ministries uses the sanctuary for Wednesday evening services

in the summer, an Easter sunrise service and occasional special services such as funerals. The parish hall, which has always been a community asset, is better prepared to host family reunions, youth gatherings, township annual meetings and elections. Thanks to the leadership of a group of dedicated people who wanted to keep their memories of Diamond Lake alive, this distinctive landmark, situated along U.S. Highway 75 north of Lake Benton, is set to preserve the heritage of early settlers for the generations to come. Grace Lutheran Church is one of five congregations partnered in Winds of the Prairie Ministries. Dates and times of services and events at Diamond Lake Chapel will be listed at their website, windsoftheprairie.org. ❖

Dennis Wilts loves what he does. Turning the soil, readying the field, planting and finally harvesting the crop is what this third-generation farmer has done every year since 1972. For Wilts, farming started as family business and has remained so throughout his farmer career. Wilts farms outside the town of Herman in the northwest corner of Stevens County. For 42 years Wilts has grown corn, soybeans and wheat. In 1996 sugar beets were added into the rotation. His brothers Duane and Dou-

glas, son Bryan, and Duane’s son-inlaw Cory Thennus are all part of the farming operation. Married since 1972 to his wife, Marcy, in addition to their son, they have a daughter, Jennifer, and son-inlaw who live in Carver. Wilts is the proud grandpa to six grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 13. In reflecting on how last year went on the farm, Wilts admits that “it turned out better than we thought it would.” From hail to lack of moisture Wilts’ fields saw it all. Last year’s lack of moisture coupled with the fact that they “haven’t had a whole lot of snow this year” has Wilts concerned. “Unless we get some we’ll be short moisture,” he said. “We need some timely rains.” The frost is down to eight feet, so it’s going to take a while to get the ground warmed up. Wilts is hopeful he can be in the field between April 15 and 20. Last year’s late spring made

From the Fields: Dairy farming in Hoffman’s DNA FIELDS, from pg. 1B for a planting starting date of May 5, which Wilts remembers as being cold and wet. Wilts is planning for “pretty much the same rotation as last year.” He will be “using some different chemicals to keep our Roundup-ready weeds under control.” Looking ahead for the year, Wilts has farming on the brain but still enjoys spending time down in Arizona when he can get away. With the long and difficult winter they’ve experienced this year, Wilts is thankful to get a respite from it, enjoy the Arizona sun, and spend time with the grandchildren who visit him and his wife while in the desert. But even the warm Arizona climate can’t keep Wilts away from the fields that he’s known since childhood. Farming is in his blood, and he enjoys the fact that it allows you to “be your own boss and do what you want to do.”

The Hoffmans New Ulm, Minn.

Dairy farming is ingrained in Don Hoffman’s DNA. “Born and raised on the dairy farm,” he said. “It’s what I

know best.” Hoffman graduated high school in 1982 and has been farming outside of New Ulm ever since. In fact, he “never considered anything else.” Don Hoffman For Hoffman and his wife, Diane, the farm and dairy operation is a family affair, including son Brad doing custom silage chopping work and his other son Scott (along with daughter-in-law Kendra) raising the calves. The last few years have been tough on dairy producers, but it seems at least for the moment “the milk prices have improved,” Hoffman said. “We’re pretty excited about that.” Last year there was a bright spot in dairy production on the Hoffman farm, as their milk production was up. With the cold weather they’ve endured this winter, Hoffman is more than ready for spring. The cows were comfortable in their free-style barn but the temperatures got so cold that manure equipment wouldn’t function, which meant doing everything by hand. Hoffman was quick to point out,

though, that “the cows come first, people come second.” At the Hoffman dairy “cows have a good life.” As Hoffman looks to this spring he will be planting corn, alfalfa and soybeans but does have concerns about the moisture levels in the fields. It was “very dry last year,” he said. Currently “most of the fields are cleared off (of snow).” But with a reported frost down to five feet, it could be a while until the fields are ready. He hopes to plant by the last week of April. If not, “anything after May 1 I wouldn’t consider good.” Hoffman knows that in farming and dairy production nothing is ever routine or quiet. Hoffman is looking forward to a quiet summer on the social front as last summer the family was busy with the wedding of his son Scott on Hoffman’s father’s farm. It was “a fair amount of work but it all went well.” That along with a “major Hoffman reunion” made last summer an exciting one. Hoffman looks forward to enjoying another summer of the farm life he knows and loves, but also hopes to spend some of his limited down time by wetting a line in one of his favorite fishing holes.

The Hagens Lake Mills, Iowa

On land six miles east of Lake Mills sits the farm of Jim Hagen, a second-generation farmer who’s been “planting corn since I Jim Hagen was 14 years old.” Hagen attended Iowa State University in 1980 for one year but knew in his heart that the farm was where he wanted to be and decided to take the plunge into farming for a living. Since 1981 he has been farming full time with his father, Gordon. When you like something, why change? Hagen said he has “lived within five miles of here my whole life.” Some changes, however, are worth making as evidenced by the big change that took place for Hagen earlier this year: getting married to his wife, Christy. Hagen has three children: Stacy, who works at the University of California at Davis, and sons Andrew and Eric who are both in the Navy. He also has two stepchildren, Zack and Jennifer Pope. Zach is an See FIELDS, pg. 3B


‘Like a new birth every year’ fall.” No early frost last year allowed Hagen to get the crop off when the conditions were right. He credits his crops doing as well as they did to having proper drainage tiling — “that’s why we got everything planted last year.” For the 2014 season Hagen is looking at planting a 50/50 corn-soybean rotation. If Mother Nature decides to dust some May snow on his fields again this year, Hagen won’t be discouraged. He said that the “best corn I’ve ever had was stuff that had been snowed on.” Whatever spring has in store, it will be exciting to get to the field and put seed in the ground. Growing a crop is “like a new birth every year.” For Hagen that new birth creates a sense of accomplishment for a job well done; a job he takes great pride in year after year. ❖

FIELDS, from pg. 2B engineer at Jet Trailer in Humboldt, Iowa, and Jennifer is a student at ISU majoring in biology. As Hagen reflects back on the 2013 growing season and harvest, it was a challenge in many ways. He knows that he was fortunate to just get his crop in the ground, which wasn’t the case for so many producers in the area. He was able to plant “90 percent of corn before the snow on May 2.” He planted soybeans on May 5. Last year was filled with “lots of short windows,” Hagen said. He felt he needed to take advantage of every day that the weather cooperated. Last year provided plenty of moisture for the fields, and in the end the crop was “better than expected. ...

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

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.
