Dairy farm takes waste from 560 cows and turns it into a great

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Compost the manure of 560 cows and you’ve got “garden food” galore. That’s the challenge — and more importantly, the marketing opportunity — for Rosenholm Dairy nearly every day. This high tech dairy operation separates their livestock manure solids and liquids with a screen separator. Liquids are stored in a holding lagoon and pumped as needed for irrigation purposes on its fields. However manure solids are stockpiled on an impermeable blacktop surface for approximately three months of composting. This process exceeds the National Organic Standards, which means turning the compost material five times after the compost windrow reaches 131 F. End result is a product called COWSMO. Marketing specialist Mandy Speerstra (pictured at right) shared some details about COWSMO at the recent Organic Farming Conference See COMPOST, pg. 25A

Letter: Minnesota beef industry headed in wrong direction To the Editor: It is disheartening to learn the Minnesota beef checkoff referendum did not pass. Thank you to the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association and fellow producers who worked to help get the referendum passed. These leaders worked hard to encourage producer participation and providing information for what the state checkoff could do. In voting, you’ve proven your care and concern for the future of our industry and understand the need to increase our beef promotion efforts. For several years, I served as chairman of the Minnesota Beef Council board so I know how valuable the beef story is for consumers to hear. The

OPINION

Minnesota Beef Council has an outstanding history of leveraging Minnesota beef producers’ checkoff dollars to the fullest extent to promote our beef product to Minnesota’s 5.5 million consumers. A study was done in 2009 which showed that for every dollar invested in the beef checkoff, the industry had a return of $5.55. It concerns me that in the last five years, beef has been losing market shares in the meat case. With forecasted retail prices continuing to climb, it is more important than ever to invest in beef research, promotion and education. As developing countries’ economies continue to strengthen, they increase protein consumption, especially beef. This is an opportunity for the beef industry to explode.

Many producers have vocalized frustration with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s position on Country of Origin Labeling. It is important for producers to remember that the Cattlemen’s Beef Board contracts with the NCBA on beef checkoff programs, but the COOL issue was not a checkoffrelated issue, therefore not funded by the checkoff. The policy division of the NCBA covered all expenses related to opposition of COOL. For years, I have received the Canadian cattlemen’s magazine to keep up with what they are doing in research, production and marketing, and feed rations. Canadian cattlemen voted to increase their checkoff another dollar to $4 per head in 2014 and another 0.50 in 2015 with only five votes from cattle producers opposed to the increase. The same day I heard the Minnesota beef checkoff did not pass, we received news that Ohio voted 72 percent in favor of the $1 state checkoff. They will join states such as Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, North Carolina and Washington who have also increased their checkoff investment. In many ways, Minnesota has been a leader in the beef industry, whether it has been Beef Quality Assurance, beef research or agriculture production practices. The “no” vote by beef producers tells me that we are taking a step backward as industry leaders. I wish moving forward producers would vote based on the facts and information, rather than their emotions. Dennis Swan Balaton, Minn.

Letter: New ag tech allows better water stewardship to plant picture-perfect straight rows with the push of a button. Actually the big payoff comes with being able to produce more crops with fewer inputs. Using data gleaned from past yield maps, soil grid samples, manure samples and soil type surveys, prescriptions are written for input applications. Planters that vary seeding rates and fertilizer and manure spreaders that vary rates of crop nutrients are all becoming commonplace in today’s agriculture. By applying just what a crop uses we are attempting to eliminate nutrient runoff and protect the water quality of our groundwater and lakes and streams while at the same time saving us money. Irrigated agriculture is important in feeding today’s world. It is estimated that nationwide nearly one half of all U.S. crop revenue grows on the 16 percent of agricultural land that is irrigated, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic

Research Service. We all realize water is an important resource and want it to be available into the future. The DNR has adopted a groundwater management program and has established three pilot groundwater management areas in Minnesota. My family farm is in one of the designated areas called the Bonanza Valley. The DNR is having monthly meetings to initiate a conversation on groundwater. Hopefully by engaging all stakeholders that depend on water we can develop a plan that protects the sustainability and water quality of our groundwater resources and the economic viability of our region. My brother and my three sons and their families operate an irrigated grain and livestock farm. Jim Anderson Belgrade, Minn.

Minnesota farmers are adopting the latest technology to conserve water and protect water quality. With the help of local county Natural Resource Conservation Service offices and irrigation Extension agents many of us have installed low-pressure drop nozzles with pressure regulators to limit evaporation; use irrigation scheduling to apply just enough water when needed; and are planting cover crops to boost water holding capacity. We are also adopting variable rate technology as it evolves to place less water on areas of a field with heavier soils. Most of us who have livestock have installed manure containment structures to better utilize its nutrient value and protect our water. Today’s genetically modified seeds have greatly reduced the use of pesticides and long-lasting herbicides. Since 2000, precision farming has been the most wonderful and exciting innovation that has ever been implemented by today’s farmers. Many think of this technology as enabling farmers

OPINION

THE LAND, APRIL 25, 2014

To the Editor: Recently an article was published by Minnesota Public Radio that criminalized irrigation agriculture and tried to embarrass the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for not protecting our groundwater. Since the beginning of irrigated farming in Minnesota over 50 years ago, farmers have been working with the DNR to make certain our use of water was sustainable. My grandfather, Carl, volunteered his time to take monthly measurements of monitoring wells that were set up in our area in the 1960s to follow any changes in groundwater levels. The DNR currently has 42 monitoring wells in our area checking both surficial (shallow) and buried artesian (deep) aquifers. To date, these wells have shown the same spring recharge levels that were present before irrigation with minor differences following precipitation trends. Data and hydrographs for all of these wells are available on the DNR website.

FFA

has long been held high as an organization that brings out strengths in youth who didn’t realize the ability that they had. The 1988-89 Minnesota state FFA officer team of Chris (Henning) Schumacher, Kris (Williams) Uter, Joan Koep, Dean VonBank, Lori (Michels) Heil and Patrick Thell worked as a team, but four of the members admitted to being shy — even “painfully shy” — before they joined the FFA ranks. Koep, the “painfully shy” one, however, said she became a different person when involved in FFA activities. These six, along with the regional vice presidents — Andy Erickson, Lee Knudson, Mike Mastey, Bruce Mathiowetz, Gary Schmiesing, Allen Schoenfeld, Nancy Schwantz and Brian VanZomeren, made for a strong team of 14 to lead the state’s FFA members. Just as the leaders of today, these 14 led and inspired the state’s FFA members. Following are the stories of the six constitutional state officers. The theme for this year’s Minnesota FFA convention, April 2729, is “Fuel Your Fire.” Will your FFA fire be fueled by the stories of these leaders from the past? —Kevin Schulz

Oh, yea, he’s also currently serving as state FFA vice president, and she will be at this year’s state convention to see him give his retiring address. “We watched the live stream of him being named to state office last year, and we said that we’d be there this year.” Garrett is a junior at Heron Lake Southwest Star

Wyatt is an eighth grader “looking forward to joining FFA next year.” Madelyn, 9, and Addison, 5, round out the Schumacher clan. The future looks bright for the FFA legacy of the Schumacher family. “We’ve never pushed them in FFA,” she said. “If they ask, we tell them of all the benefits — the public speaking experience, the leadership, the friendships. … That’s what’s great about FFA, especially today — FFA has something for everyone.” Schumacher sees how she has benefited from FFA involvement, and her advice to any youth contemplating FFA involvement sounds like a motto FFA could use: “FFA. There’s something for you. Guaranteed.” ❖

PRESIDENT, from pg. 10A She had met Adam when they were both in the third grade, and though she claims it wasn’t love at first sight, “I always knew he was special, I just didn’t know how special.” After graduating in 1993 with an agricultural education degree, Schumacher worked for about five years as a territory seed representative for Ciba Seeds. “Then we had our second child and the nursery business was growing and decided to come into the family operation.” Schumacher is secretary for Schumacher Nursery and Berry Farms at Heron Lake, Minn., an operation that also consists of Adam, his father, mother, his brother Trent and Trent’s wife. Just as the nursery and strawberry business consumes all the Schumachers, FFA has flourished with Chris’ siblings, and with Adam and Chris’ children.

Running for state office is a stressful experience by itself, but Uter had to work that much harder. “I didn’t even know how to go about applying for state office,” she said. “Louise (Worm) had moved on to Heron Lake (Okabena-Lakefield) to teach ag, but I still contacted her to help me.” This was long before the days of doing a Google search for “state FFA officer application.” Obviously, Worm helped Uter figure it out, but she still didn’t think it would be enough. “I remember sitting there waiting as they were calling the names of the new officers,” Uter recalls. “Once they got to secretary, I figured ‘well, I did all that I could, but it wasn’t good enough’.” The elected state officers are announced in the following order: sentinel, reporter, treasurer, secretary, vice president and, finally, president. “When they announced my name for vice president, I didn’t know what to do.”

What she did do was become the member of a strong six-person team. “I think we all brought individual strengths to the team. ... Those were my ‘glory days,’ nothing but a lot of fond memories. “I’m amazed how well we put things together, that we pulled off what we did without the technology that they have today.” In addition to the strength of the officer team itself, Uter also credits Paul Day, the state FFA adviser at the time, and Jim Ertl, the state FFA executive secretary, with leading the way for the six state officers and eight regional vice presidents. “Mr. Day was huge for doing things the right way ... handwritten thank you notes, what a proper handshake should feel like,” she said. “A lot of what I learned as a state officer I still use every day.” After that whirlwind year as state officer, Uter settled back into the routine of college student at the University of Minnesota where she graduated See VICE PRESIDENT, pg. 15A

marketing including mass media, social media, direct mail, electronic mailing “and everything in between.” When she isn’t busy being a “Kris-ofall-trades” at Otten Bros., she is busy watching her children — Mackenzie and Zachary — grow into young adults. Mackenzie, 17, is a senior at Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted High School where she competed in the FFA parliamentary procedure contest, placing fifth at the national convention last fall. She will be attending St. Cloud State University on a basketball scholarship. Zachary is an eighth grader at HLWW middle school and plans to join FFA in the fall. “He loves the engineering and equipment side of it.” Both of the Uter children have developed a good work ethic, and agriculture background, by spending time on their father’s (Uter’s former husband) dairy farm. Uter has helped guide the HLWW FFA chapter’s nursery landscape team, proud of the team’s eighth place finish at national convention, passing along the knowledge that she learned and has served her well through life. “FFA got me on my career path,” she said. “From when I got into FFA and found the nursery and landscape competition, I knew that that’s what I wanted to do for my career.” “I wouldn’t be where I am at without FFA,” Williams-Uter said. ❖

VICE PRESIDENT, from pg. 12A with a degree is Landscape Architecture in 1993. After college she took a job with a Maple Grove, Minn., firm doing residential landscape design, which she did for two years. “That was not what I expected,” she said. “The hours were horrible because we had to be there when the homeowners were there, which meant either early in the mornings or in evenings.” After those two years, she decided to “just get a ‘job-job’” to help pay the bills as she and her husband were thinking about starting a family. Not fully satisfied and wanting to get back to her true love of landscaping, she became intrigued by the “hiring cashiers” sign outside Otten Bros. Garden Center & Landscaping at Long Lake, Minn. One day she actually walked in, spoke with the owner “for three minutes and got hired on the spot, and started as a cashier the next day.”She is now in her 19th year with Otten Bros., working her way up from cashier to the last number of years as purchasing and marketing manager. Though she got her college degree in five years (Landscape Architecture is now a sixyear degree), she claims all that she learned about plants came from high school and being on the nursery and landscape team in FFA. She does all the purchasing for the company, as well as handling all the

25 Years: ‘FFA made me comfortable in my own skin’ Being raised on a dairy farm, Koep doesn’t remember family vacations — “we’d take an occasional long road trip” — so the “goodwill” tours as a state officer got Koep to see some parts of Minnesota that she had only heard of. Koep remembers that year as state officer as a coming-together of six individuals with specific talents and strengths to form a strong team — a team that was actually 14 strong. The six constitutional officers featured here are supplemented by the eight regional vice presidents. “They (regional vice presidents) were a big part of our team.” Lessons and skills learned in FFA have helped Koep in her career, which

not sure I even knew that they existed before that,” she said. That meeting whet her leadership appetite, an appetite that needed to be quenched. She held various chapter offices, as well as district and regional posts, but she had her sights on a state office. Koep remembers being encouraged by previous state officers as well as her high school adviser, Blaine Larson, to take the next step in the leadership progression. The 1987 high school graduate ran for state office at the end of her freshman year at Fergus Falls Community College, and obviously she made the slate of the six state officers. “I was never president of my chapter, but I was region vice president,” she said. Although Koep was a shy girl in high school, she said she was a different person in FFA — outgoing and fun. Koep remembers attending FFA leadership camp, and was in the same cabin with other FFA girls from around the state, “and one of the girls said I was ‘cool.’ That was the last word you would have used to describe me in school … FFA made me comfortable in my own skin. I was more successful away from school.”

SECRETARY, from pg. 15A been populating Minnesota FFA chapters since first allowed to join in 1969. “I remember that because I was born that year,” Koep said. Koep’s brothers loved the outdoors and thus were in the wildlife and forestry competitions. Though she wasn’t passionate about the outdoors as her brothers were, she still participated in the wildlife judging contests. “If they could win state, I thought we could too,” she said. Her team did win state, and though that had become a Battle Lake FFA tradition, she looks back on all the hard work that her team put in to come out on top. Leadership comes easy for some; others have to put in a little more effort. Leadership wasn’t natural for Koep. She knew about hard work, growing up on her parents’ (Gerald and Patricia) dairy farm. Similar hard work would be needed to achieve her FFA dreams. Self-described as “painfully shy” in high school, she found herself in FFA. Attending Greenhand Camp after her freshman high school year, she ran for and was elected to a camp office. Also at that same Greenhand Camp, Koep was first exposed to state officers. “I’m

The younger VonBank remembers being in public speaking, the FFA creed contest and wildlife contests, but it was in the leadership roles where he flourished. Leadership didn’t come easy, though. “I was a shy kid and forced myself to become an extrovert,” he said. “Life experiences through 4-H and FFA opened me up to a lot of opportunities.” He served as the state 4-H president 1986-87, See TREASURER, pg. 20A recognized that I had what it takes to serve and point me in the right direction.” Those little nudges along the way are all that’s needed to push someone in the right direction. Koep benefited from those “pushes” from her FFA adviser and from her brothers Don, Tony, Pat and Frank; pushes that made her “do more than you can think you can do.” Its true value “is hard to measure, but the FFA experience has been invaluable in the confidence that it brings out in you,” she said. Take that from a self-described “painfully shy girl.” ❖

25 Years: Enjoyed travel that came with officer position TREASURER, from pg. 18A and then entered the University of Minnesota after graduating from Clara City High School in 1987. “I had just got done with the state 4-H president term, and thought I’d take a year off before trying for state FFA office.” Even with his shyness, leadership was in the genes as Dan VonBank was Minnesota FFA reporter in 1962, so it was natural for the younger VonBank to also take a seat with the top six FFA officers in the state. Since he was one of the oldest members of the state officer team, and he was already in the Twin Cities, he became the de facto FFA representative “if an FFA presence was requested in the metro area.” He enjoyed the travel that was required with both the 4-H and the FFA state office positions. “4-H took me around the country, but FFA got me around the state” as the team visited high school chapter banquets and other activities. Another difference between the two youth organizations, at least from the leadership aspect, was that “4-H was a lot of fun and (I) got to see different parts of the country, and FFA was much more structured, a lot more work.” Through all the hard work, “we got to be a pretty tight group back then,” VonBank said of the 1988-89 state officer team. Upon completion of his term as state FFA treas-

urer, VonBank continued his business major studies at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management where he graduated in 1991. FFA provided VonBank a lot of life experiences, but he never saw himself in the world of agriculture. “For as long as I can remember I knew I wanted to be in some sort of business.” After graduation from the U of M, he did interview with Cargill “to run a plant,” but he ended up working for AT&T in an entry-level sales position. He stayed with AT&T for three to four years, working his way up through a variety of sales positions. “Anyone getting into business should go into sales,” he said. “Dealing directly with customers will help you a lot.” While he was in college he worked for Honeywell, and in 1995 he went back to work for the then Minneapolis-based Honeywell in its Microswitch division in Freeport, Ill., where he stayed for about four years. He then learned the lesson “it’s who you know, not necessarily what you know” as he was recruited to join a small private company where he stayed for one-and-a-half years. He was recruited for that position by a former boss from Honeywell. He then went to work for Navteq, a subsidiary of Nokia, in Chicago. Through a company name change, he is now working for HERE, a global leader in the mapping and location intelligence business. According to the HERE website, the company’s maps can be found in four out of five in-car navigation systems in North America and Europe. He went to Berlin, Germany, to be vice president of

Global Solutions to build the Center of Excellence within HERE for developing market-specific solutions and driving scalable implementation of those solutions into the regional organizations. He has since moved to his current position of vice president of Global Planning, Strategy and Operations where his job is to “plan and execute our sales strategies and ensure tight planning and interlock with the vertical business and marketing teams.” Along with VonBank in Germany are his wife, Kate Wettergren, and children: Spencer, 9, and twin daughters, Tessa and Sydney, 8. VonBank said he is currently under a three-year open-ended contract, and though the family is enjoying their time in Europe, he does see them returning to their Chicago home. “It was a big cultural change for my wife and the kids,” he said from a hotel room in Paris, “but now they’re getting involved more and more.” The VonBank children attend an international school where 15 to 20 ethnic backgrounds are represented in their classrooms. One thing the children are not exposed to Europe, or in Chicago for that matter, is the FFA. “In Chicago the kids have as many clubs or organizations to be involved in as possible,” he said. “I think it’s different for kids today. The opportunities are exponentially greater for kids nowadays.” Regardless what his children get involved in, he feels they will have the opportunity to grow, just as their father did in FFA. ❖

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

FFA state officer and a college freshman simultaneously made for a busy year, she feels she may have actually benefited from the hectic schedule. “I had become pretty good at juggling my schedule and activities,” she said. “I think it was probably good that I stayed busy.” As the reporter on the team, she is jealous of the technological advancements that today’s FFAers have literally at their fingertips. “Most of what I did back then was so time-consuming as reporter.” She thought that the state officers came together to make a strong team out of six individual talents and skills. “I think we meshed pretty well.” “I loved being invited to speak at FFA banquets; it was always a special time,” she said. “All the people I met and all the young people who looked up to me.” The Heil family was preparing for a move at the time of this interview, and she said she ran across a file of the various speeches she had given over the years. “I learned how to be a public speaker through FFA. “It’s hard to fathom that in four years that I grew that much; it’s pretty amazing the confidence that you get from FFA.” She approached the 1989 state FFA convention with mixed emotions, when they would give up their state offices to the new team. “It was a relief, yet sad that it (year as state officer) was done … I had done what I wanted to do with the state office, but then it was time to focus on the studies.” She took what she learned from her FFA competition in farm business management contests into the classroom, graduating from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in ag business management in 1992. “I picked my career because of FFA and I picked the U of M because of FFA.” She apparently picked the U of M for more than a degree, since her future husband, Mark Heil, was taking the same classes as Lori. FFA actually had a hand in bringing the two together. Mark was chapter president at the Plainview FFA chapter, “and he remembered being at Greenhand Camp with me, but I didn’t remember him.”

Lori (Michels) Heil, Reporter Once upon a time, a quiet, shy high school freshman girl joined an organization under the lure of her best friend. Lori Heil stuck with it, and flourished, even though that Lori (Michels) friend only stayed in Heil FFA for another year. Heil’s brother, Joe Michels, may have preceded her in to the Madelia High School FFA chapter, but it was her friend who convinced her to join the group. “I was pretty quiet and shy in high school, but FFA really helped me gain experience in public speaking.” Though she was first exposed to state officers at Greenhand Camp after her freshman year in high school, it took a while before she set her sights that high. “It took a little time for me to think that I could make it as a state officer,” she said. “Mr. Schloesser continually put it out there for us.” Mr. Schloesser is Brad Schloesser, Heil’s FFA adviser at Madelia High School, and he knew what it took to become a state officer since he was state vice president on the 1980-81 officer team. As mentioned, Heil’s brother Joe was in FFA, but he was more on the production side of FFA, as where his little sister went more the leadership route. She did get involved in her chapter’s farm business management team that won the state FFA contest, before going on to win the national FFA contest. “We worked so hard before school, after school,” she said. “Seeing that hard work pay off was so rewarding.” Rewarding is how she sums up a lot of what FFA can offer youth. “Job interview, for instance, is a great contest to be involved in. It teaches a lot of real life skills that you can use all of the time.” The 1988 high school graduate ran for state office the spring of her senior year in high school, rather than getting a year of college under her belt. “I thought that maybe I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t do it right away because I might get into my studies and then never run for office.” She feels that even though being an

25 Years: ‘It’s amazing the confidence you get from FFA’ REPORTER, from pg. 21A Obviously she eventually took note, as the couple was married in 1991. After college graduation, Lori took a job with Green Giant as a field representative at the Montgomery, Minn., location. She worked there for three years before taking a position with AgriGrowth. Mark then took a job with Continental Grain and the family moved to Milwaukee, Wis. She worked as an executive secretary, and then the couple’s first child, Sam, came along. She headed back to work after maternity leave. Mark was then transferred to Carmen, Manitoba, in 1998, and the family followed, but they were only granted one work visa. That was when Lori moved onto the most-rewarding career of stay-at-home mom. The couple has Sam, a high school sophomore, and Megan, an eighth grader. The Heils have also opened their home to Samuel, a 15-year-old who lost both his parents. The family moved back to the United States in 1999, landing in Bloomington, Ill., but have just moved to Normal, Ill. Mark is general manager for

Prairie Central Cooperative. As with any young FFAer, Lori couldn’t have become the person she did without the support of her parents — Aaron Michels and Joan Rockram — and siblings. In addition to Joe, there is a younger brother and sister, Steve and Chris. “I don’t remember my parents having any concern the more I got involved in FFA,” she said. “They were always very supportive.” She and Mark have offered the same support for their children, while Lori admits her children have grown up “more citified.” Sam, Megan and Samuel may not have an opportunity to grow through FFA as Mark and Lori did, but Lori said they are finding their own strengths. “We share our FFA stories,” she said. “I found an FFA scrapbook and we were looking at it, and that helps them realize that if they can set goals and try they can be a success. … I’m not sure how the world sees a success, but if you try, that’s success.” ❖

That never happened.

The elder Thell remembers Patrick saying “I’m probably the only bald state FFA officer you’ll ever have” during his retirement address at the 1989 state convention. John Thell said the last couple of months of his son’s life were tough on Patrick and the entire Thell family. “It was tough to see him go through it.” Patrick Thell died Aug. 4, 1989, just one month shy of his 20th birthday.

25 Years: Not boisterous or loud, he led by example

SENTINEL, from pg. 23A instructors while Patrick was in high school, remembers the young Thell being a hard worker, and determined to become a state officer. “I think coming in with the background of his brother (Robert) having been a state officer, he just set his goal early that that’s what he wanted to achieve,” Hanson said. Robert Thell was president of the 1978-79 FFA officer team. “Pat was not a loud, boisterous type of guy,” Hanson recalls. “He led by example.” Mention the name Patrick Thell, and the first word that comes to Schumacher’s mind is “kind.” “He was such a kind person, a dry sense of humor,” she said. Joan Koep remembers Patrick as “one of those all-around nice guys, not an unkind word for anyone.” Patrick was the youngest of John and Celeste’s children, which also included John III, Susan, Robert and David. Celeste passed away Memorial Day of 2013. John II remembers David, who is a TCF certified public accountant, and Patrick always talking about starting a business together once Patrick graduated from college. “When Patrick was dying, David said, ‘there goes our business’.” John believes that Robert unintentionally set the goals for Patrick to follow. “He wanted to do what Robert did,” he said. ❖

Look at us now... The 1988-89 state FFA officer team dedicated the following poem to the memory of Patrick, and it appeared in the Fall 1989 Minnesota FFA newsletter.

I can still remember The way things were back then. I didn’t even know your name, Let alone call you friend. Now that we’ve become so close, It makes me want to cry, When I think of that dark day, When we must say goodbye. Look at us now Standing here together, None of us strangers, Anymore. Look at us now Standing here together. My only wish that won’t come true, Is that it could last forever. It seems when we’re together Each moment a memory. Love and laughter fill the air It’s plain for all to see. In all the things you’ve done and said You showed that you care. And now I can’t imagine life When you’re no longer there. Look at us now … we miss you, Pat.


tom blends its compost products for gardeners, nurseries and CSAs. Markets keep expanding for this dairy farm, making a big business out of its manure compost products. “Minnesota and Wisconsin are the major markets but container shipments are moving COWSMO to the East Coast, Colorado, and even into some foreign countries,” SpeerSubmitted stra said. Experience counts in this business, and they have been at it for 24 years. She said the business started as a way to deal with the extra nutrients they didn’t need for crops, with neighbors mostly doing on-farm pickups. “Our compost business definitely strengthens the dairy operation as well. It allows us to employ more people and that means we can provide a high level of care for our dairy animals,” Speerstra said. About 20 employees are part of this venture which involves three-time a day milking through a double-nine herringbone parlor. The marketing headquarters for COWSMO is Cochrane, Wis., which is about 25 miles east of Winona, Minn. For more information, log on to www.cowsmocompost.com. ❖

COMPOST, from pg. 1A in St. Cloud, Minn. Described as a manure-based compost and potting soil product, COWSMO is sold by the cubic foot, the cubic yard and also bulk totes. Explaining the packaging of COWSMO, she said, “a bulk tote would be about the cubic size of a pallet. But we also package in 50pound bags which approximate 1.6 cubic foot and 20pound woven plastic bags,” Speerstra said. New in the market is a 35-pound retail bag with a plastic coating on the outside of the weaving which makes it stronger and more ultra-violet resistant. As you might expect, gardeners often drive directly to the dairy farm for their COWSMO purchases. She said a cubic yard is priced at $32 but they also mix their product with potting soils. “We’re not changing the texture of the compost but simply adding other ingredients such as peat, in some cases even sand, to meet the specifications of particular growers. “Good markets for us are various CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) operations in our area,” Speerstra said.

Grain Outlook Planting well behind average

Livestock Angles Hogs volatile, cattle benign

Grain Angles Ensure crop success in 2014

The following market analysis is for the week ending April 17. CORN — Corn traded in sideways fashion before tailing off into the Easter weekend. The markets are closed on April 18 to observe Good Friday. The market didn’t seem to have a lot of energy or major input to direct its course this week. Losses were limited by uncertain weather in wheat areas (cold in some areas, dry in others) and escalating events in Ukraine. May corn fell 3 3/4 cents this week to close at $4.94 3/4 and the December contract dropped 2 1/2 cents to $4.96 3/4 per bushel. Overall, U.S. weather is fore- PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. cast to improve for fieldwork and St. Paul planting. As of April 13, 3 percent of the U.S. corn crop had been planted compared to 6 percent on average and 2 percent complete last year. Illinois was only 1 percent planted versus 10 percent on average, Nebraska at 1 percent versus 1 percent average, and Missouri at 9 percent versus 16 percent average. Due to rain, and snow in some places, little planting progress may be expected on the next report. The average for April 20 is 14 percent planted. Weekly export sales were nearly quadruple of what we need per week to reach the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s forecast. Sales were 23.7 million bushels compared to only needing 6.2 million bushels per week. This brings total commitments to 96 percent of the USDA’s 1.75 billion bushel export forecast. Most of the trade is fairly comfortable with the USDA’s projection; although, if we keep up this pace it will need to be raised on future reports.

There is a real contrast in the livestock markets for the past several weeks. The hog market has been extremely volatile, while the cattle market has been benign. The cattle market has been in a rather tight trading range since the beginning of March. One week prices advance, followed by the next week or two in a price decline, ending right back where the advance started. With the grilling season just around the corner, many feel that the cattle market will pick up with increased demand for beef. It does appear that the beef cutout has found a low in anticipation of that potential increase in JOE TEALE Broker demand. The only caveat would be that competitive meats are a bet- Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. ter value than beef, which could retard that anticipated demand. Packers have been more reluctant in the bidding for live inventory of late since most are in the red on their profit margins. Cattle numbers are still on the light side, but once again it boils down to demand. The next couple of weeks will definitely set the tone in the cattle market through the spring and into the summer months. Another factor to consider is the import of beef has been on the increase over the past few months and is helping to satisfy the deficit that we have been experiencing. If this continues to increase, this would be detrimental to prices advancing. At this point producers should stay aware of market conditions and protect their inventories as needed. After moving to all-time new highs, hog prices have

Your equipment technology experts, fellow farmers, seed dealers, agronomists, marketing experts and financial specialists are the key roles that come to mind. During this fast-paced time MARTY KRIENER of year, you won’t be able to accom- AgStar Senior Financial Services Executive plish all of your goals on your own, Rochester, Minn. so make sure to ask for help from your friends and specialists to ensure that everything continues to run smoothly. Don’t forget to stay on top of your stored grain. Double-check your stored grain to make sure it’s in good shape. There is no substitute for going into your bins and checking the grain yourself. Check and recheck it if you plan to carry this grain into summer. Knowing the moisture, test weight and temperature in every bin you have is extremely important. If you don’t know these things, please take the steps necessary to find out. These properties will tell you if the grain is dry and if it will store well into the summer.

The possibility of the market making another advance is entirely possible since hog numbers will be depressed for several months, and summer seasonally is the high for hog prices. However, the possibility that the higher levels of the pork cut will bring the same resistance to the higher prices and slow, if not stop, the advance once again. Despite the potential for a rebound in prices, producers should stay cognizant of the market conditions, and protect inventories as warranted. ❖

In essence the pork market priced itself out of demand. This was all due to the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus which has cut the hog herd.

report, private researchers are raising their crush category to levels that suggest a sub-100 million bushel carryout. Export sales were in the black for old crop when we really need them to be in the red. Sales this week were 700,000 bushels. Total commitments are 59 million bushels higher than the USDA forecast for 1.58 billion bushels in exports. This week’s sales report included cancellations by China of 55,000 metric tons and 68,000 mt by unknown. Talk circulated that China will likely cancel an additional 1.2 million mt of soybean purchases. Reportedly, they delayed or defaulted on 12 to 13 cargoes this week combined U.S.Brazilian origin. The majority of those bushels should come from Brazilian origin since China’s unshipped bushels from the United States are only 5.18 million bushels. A portion of the 33.6 million bushels of unknown destination, unshipped bushels may also be to China, but there are no estimates to what that amount may be. According to reports, there are no boats in the U.S. lineup for China.

NYSTROM, from pg. 26A Weekly ethanol production jumped 43,000 barrels per day higher last week to 939,000 barrels per day, up 13 percent from a year ago. Stocks fell 0.5 million barrels to 16 million barrels. As we head home for the weekend, there are reports that Ukraine and Russia have come to some sort of agreement about de-escalating their conflict. If so, this could put pressure on wheat and corn markets. OUTLOOK: Attention is beginning to focus on planting weather across the Midwest, with forecasts calling for warmer temperatures in the next week. The market is going to need to feed the bull for corn to stage another leg up. If in fact an agreement has been reached between Ukraine and Russia, we could see wheat prices reverse lower, taking corn with it. May corn broke through the 14-day moving average support this week. This sets $4.80-$4.75 as next support. As weather improves and planting pace increases, it would not be unexpected to see further pullbacks. SOYBEANS — Soybeans scampered higher through the holiday-shortened trading week, giving back just a portion of the weekly gain ahead of the rare three-day weekend. May soybeans rocketed 51 cents higher for the week to close at $15.14 and the November contract rallied 24 1/2 cents to $12.39 1/4 per bushel. A bullish National Oilseed Processors Association crush report carried prices to new contract highs in soybeans and soymeal. The rationing job in soybeans is not yet complete. The NOPA crush for March was a record at 153.8 million bushels, well above the 146 million bushel estimate. Based on the

KRIENER, from pg. 26A variability and a large volume of claims in 2013, it’s easy to miss reporting a soybean or corn unit that didn’t have a 2013 claim. Have your insurance agent create new units for added land so you don’t miss reporting these acres. Other important crop insurance deadlines you don’t want to forget are the final plant dates. Those dates are corn (grain) May 31, corn (silage) June 5, and soybeans June 10. Mark your calendars. Don’t rush things. It’s easy to rush into planting but it’s important that you don’t jump the gun. With the long winter behind us we are all eager to get in the field. Mistakes made during crop establishment are usually irreversible, and can put a “ceiling” on a crop’s yield potential before the plants have even emerged. Avoid early planting on poorly drained soils or those subject to ponding. Yield reductions resulting from “mudding the seed in” are often much greater than those resulting from a slight planting delay. Before taking your machinery to the field, experts suggest doing the “ball test.” Grab a handful of soil and mold it in your hand. If it sticks together as a ball, the soil is too wet for field operations. Don’t only take soil from the surface; also take some soil from a foot deep or so. It may be impractical to wait until the entire field is fit, but at least

check that 80 to 90 percent of the field is ready before starting field work. You want to make sure your crop gets a good start so it can finish strong. Keep in mind your grain marketing plan. Continue working on your 2014 and 2015 marketing plans. By continually reassessing your break-even points and profitability levels, this will help you make the right marketing moves for your operation. If you’re struggling with your plan remember that a good commodity broker or margin manager will help you stay flexible with your decisions and keep you aware of all the risk management alternatives so you can be proactive with your marketing when the opportunity presents itself. If you don’t currently have a marketing plan in place it’s never too late to get started. Farming is just like being part of a competitive sports team. In order to be successful we need to put in hard work, have a solid game plan, adjust that plan if the game isn’t going our way and trust our teammates. When we put all the right ingredients together, good things happen. I wish you all a safe and successful spring. AgStar Financial Services is a cooperative owned by client stockholders.

Strong returns expected to encourage expansion and sluggish sales are increasing volumes clearing to manufacturers. Milk exports from Florida increased to 140 loads compared to 120 loads a week ago. Logistical issues related to distribution are following increases in milk production levels in the Midwest. Increased processing capacity is noted in the Southwest, as a new plant comes online. Milk is being imported from other states to meet Idaho’s manufacturing demand. Arizona’s farm milk production is experiencing some decline as hot days and warm evenings disrupt cow comfort. Producers in California attribute a modest increase in milk output to first seasonal green-chop. ■ As I reported from the latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report, the USDA moved its milk production estimate slightly higher. Milk production during 2014 is forecast to total 206.1 billion pounds, up 400 million pounds from

their forecast a month ago and up 4.9 billion pounds (2.4 percent) versus 2013. Jerry Dryer, editor of the Dairy and Food Market Analyst, wrote in his April 11 issue that his milk production estimate is slightly lower at 205.8 billion pounds. The USDA said “strong returns are expected to encourage a more rapid expansion in cow numbers and increase milk per cow.” Dryer said he can’t argue with this assessment, but “questions the magnitude of the response. Cow numbers will be held in check by debt-weary milk producers and bankers and output per cow will be slowed during the first half of the year by feed quality issues.” As it always does, the USDA’s monthly Livestock, Dairy and Poultry Outlook, issued this week, mirrored dairy projections contained in the latest World Agri-

MARKETING

cultural Supply and Demand Estimates report issued April 9. The milk production forecast was raised in April. Given favorable milk-to-feed price ratios, cow numbers are expected to increase later in 2014; however the 2014 forecast number is unchanged from March. Continued robust demand for dairy products, both foreign and domestic, tightens ending stocks on both a fats and skims-solids basis. The result is higher forecast dairy product prices, except for nonfat dry milk. NDM prices were unchanged from last month as U.S. exports face stronger foreign competition. Correspondingly, Class III, Class IV, and all milk price forecasts were raised. Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

MIELKE, from pg. 28A but print sales have trailed off since the completion of holiday commitments. Export orders are trending slower. Inventories are tight; butter manufacturers look to rebuild stocks moving forward. Cash Grade A nonfat dry milk closed Thursday at $1.8650, down 4.25 cents on the week. Twelve cars were sold on the week. NDPSR powder averaged $1.9989, down 5.3 cents, and dry whey averaged 67.18 cents/lb., up 0.1 cent. Prices for nonfat dry milk are lower across the country. Buyers are hesitant to develop transactions beyond immediate needs. Farm milk production levels in general are seeing increases across the country with better weather conditions, according to the USDA’s weekly update. Producers are actively seeking replacement heifers to increase herd sizes. Bottling sales are steady to slow across the country. Increases in milk supplies

eeding could be a problem if you have over a half a million tree seedlings, as Dave and Michelle Olsen of North Central Reforestation near Evansville, Minn., do. But it’s not the problem that you might imagine. “Chickweed can be a problem,” Dave says as he gently searches through Styrofoam flats of 2-yearold Eastern red cedar seedlings in a green house of perhaps a quarter-million pine, spruce and cedar seedlings. “If you have just three or four weeds in here they can multiply rapidly.” Small details are important in the seedling business. Dave’s been learning them for over 40 years. For example, the seeds from those eastern red cedar took two years to germinate. They need a double dormancy whereas seed from the eastern white pine only require one season of dormancy. Basswood seeds have an unpredictable dormancy and some burr oak acorns are wormy.

North Central Reforestation’s signature products are its seedlings in Styroblock containers. Dave learned about them when he worked at the Cloquet forestry research station in the 1960s. “We discovered that seedlings grown in containers had a better chance of survival when they are planted than bare root plants,” he said. “Their roots are protected until the last minute.” Although North Central Reforestation does sell bare root seedlings, they have more than two dozen species, from pine to birch to plum, for sale in containers. Individuals can buy one container, or large organizations such as the Department of Natural Resources can buy 100. Before trees are sold, they are removed from the greenhouse and put in shade houses to adapt them to outdoor conditions. Dave is exacting about how to do this. “They receive 47 percent shade cover for the first

two weeks,” he said. Then they will be exposed to the elements and possibly spend the winter in the shade house. “We put a foam blanket over the seedlings,” Dave said. “It mimics snow cover.” Tree roots die if they get too cold, apparently. “If the roots get to 10 degrees they will die,” he said. “The ground never gets that cold in the winter.” Some seedlings over-winter in a freezer that is kept at 28 F. “We can get four million trees in the freezer,” Dave said. After four decades of growing millions upon millions of seedlings, Dave says he’d be happy to pass on his detailed wisdom to a younger person.

tinue with the current crop base acres that existed under the last farm bill. Total crop base acres on a FSA farm unit in the new farm program cannot exceed the total current crop base acres that existed in 2013. The option to update crop base acres may be an opportunity for producers to increase corn and soybean base acres on farm units that previously had low base acres for those crops. There are no restrictions on what crop mix is planted in a given year (2014-18) on the FSA crop base acres, and the planted acreage will have no impact on the potential farm program payments under either the PLC or ARC option from 2014 to 2018. Base acre examples (from table below) Example Farm 1: This example has an existing total crop base acreage of 100 acres, with 50 acres of corn base and 50 acres of soybean base.

There would be a choice of keeping the existing crop base acres, or updating to the reallocated crop base acres. Example Farm 2: This example has an existing total crop base acreage of 100 acres, with 50 acres of corn base and 50 acres of soybean base. The average planted acreage from 2009-12 was 80 acres of corn and 40 acres of soybeans, for a total of 120 planted acres, resulting in a “weighted acreage percentage” of 0.67 for corn and 0.33 for soybeans. The reallocated base acres would be 67 acres of corn base and 33 acres of soybean base, or a total of 100 crop base acres, rather than the 120 average See PROGRAMS, pg. 2B

Over the next few months, I will analyze the many choices that producers and landowners will need to make for enrollment in the new Farm Service Agency farm programs later this year. This column will focus on the decision surrounding the allowable reallocation of crop base acres. FARM PROGRAMS The 2014 farm bill will give By Kent Thiesse farm owners and producers an opportunity to make several one-time choices regarding their FSA farm program enrollment for 2014-18. These choices will include decisions on reallocating crop base acres, updating farm program payment yields and whether to enroll a FSA farm unit in Price Loss Coverage or the Ag Risk Coverage program. Sign-up for reallocating crop base acreage, and updating farm program payment yields will likely start by late-summer at local U.S. Department of Agriculture FSA offices, while sign-up for the various farm program choices will likely not occur until later this fall. All FSA farm program payments for both the PLC and the ARC will be calculated on allocated crop base acres for a given FSA farm unit, rather than on year-to-year planted crop acres on that farm unit. Producers will be given a one-time opportunity to reallocate crop base acres on a given FSA farm unit, based on average planted acres from 2009-12, or they can choose to con-

FSA determinations may be necessary for complex cases PROGRAMS, from pg. 1B planted acres (2009-12). The total reallocated base acres cannot exceed the total existing crop base acres (2013). There would be a choice of keeping the existing crop base acres, or updating to the reallocated crop base acres. Example Farm 3: This example has an existing total crop base acreage of 100 acres, with 50 acres of corn base, 35 acres of soybean base and 15 acres of wheat base. The average planted acreage from 2009-12 was 60 acres of corn and 40 acres of soybeans, with no wheat being planted, resulting in a “weighted acreage percentage” of 0.60 for corn and 0.40 for soybeans. The reallocated base acres would be 60 acres of corn base, 40 acres of soybean base and zero wheat base. There would be a choice of keeping the existing crop base acres, or updating to the reallocated crop base acres. Note: These are three relatively simple crop base acre reallocation examples, and obviously there will be many more complicated situations that exist in actual FSA farm unit situations. Hopefully, these examples will assist producers and landowners in analyzing the crop base acreage reallocation decision on their own farm units. More complex base acre situations may require determinations by FSA offices regarding final base acre reallocation on a farm unit. Considerations regarding base acre reallocation • The base acre reallocation is a one-time decision, and will affect potential FSA farm program payments from 2014-18. • Crop base acre reallocation will be made on the basis of FSA farm units, and decisions may vary from one farm unit to another farm unit.

• Crop base acre reallocation is a voluntary decision, and a “no decision” will result in crop base acres on farm unit remaining at the existing crop base acres for 2013. • Base acre adjustments will be made for Conservation Reserve Program acres that come back into production, according to the base acres that were reduced at the time of CRP enrollment. • Prevented-planted acres may be counted as planted acres in a given year for base acre reallocation, even if a second crop was planted later; however, it is not permissible to use crop acres for both crops in base acre determination. • Crop base acres will be used to determine farm program payments for PLC, as well as for both the countybased and individual-based ARC, which are the options that will be available under the new farm bill. • The reallocation of crop base acres does not affect what crops may be planted on a given FSA farm unit in the years from 2014-18. • All farm program payments are calculated on the basis of crop base acres (2014-18), rather than on planted acres in a given year, so a producer could receive a farm program payment for a crop in a given year, even if they did not plant that crop on that particular FSA farm unit. • On rented farms, producers will need to work with landowners regarding the best decision for base acre reallocation, as landowners will need to sign the final decision at FSA offices. • Base acre reallocation decisions will stay with a FSA farm unit in future years, through 2018, even if that farm unit is sold, or is rented to another producer. • If the total crop acreage on an FSA farm unit is

MARKETING

CONCRETE HOG SLAT

reduced in future years, the FSA crop base acreage will be reduced according to the percentages utilized for the crop base acre reallocation in 2014. • If there is an opportunity to reallocate crop base acres on an FSA farm unit, landowners and producers must determine which crop base acres are most likely to have higher farm program payments from 2014 to 2018. In Midwestern states, the current price scenario tends to favor corn base acres over other crop base acres. That scenario could change by the later years of the farm bill. • The crop base acre decision that is made in 2014 on an FSA farm unit may extend beyond the current farm bill (2014-18), and could possibly be used for future FSA farm program payment determinations beyond 2018. Bottom line During the next few months, producers and landowners should review the current crop base acres on existing FSA farm units, and compare that to what reallocated crop base acres may look like, as determined by actual planted crop acres on that farm unit from 2009-12. If a farm unit had preventedplanted acres during those four years, or has CRP acreage returning to production, the base acre reallocation calculations become a bit more complicated. The landowners and producers should also begin to analyze potential farm program payments on a farm unit for different crops, under both the PLC and ARC options, with the various crop base acre options. In some cases, the crop base acre decision will be fairly straight-forward, while in other situations the decision will be much more complex and difficult to make. FSA offices will be providing official information and details on reallocation of crop base acres in the coming weeks.

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. for questions or prices please call
