Commentary: Climate focus comes at expense of other national priorities Most experts agree that the climate is changing in the world and that CO2 levels have increased in the atmosphere, however, whether that is changing the climate or it’s simply a part of a changing weather is open for debate. I’m not making a case if man is altering the climate or not, but our reaction seems a bit excessive and unorganized. In the 1970s the experts warned of a global cooldown (or ice age) because of the combustion engine. When that theory didn’t pan out, the name was changed to global warming, and when the public didn’t buy into that, climate change became the mantra. The changing names certainly makes the public wary. Now, it’s a government full-court press on climate change, but in my mind it’s over the top and unorganized. First, NASA has been converted from a space agency to a climate change agency. We no longer have the shuttle program and space is not a priority. In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency has moved ahead with a Cap and Trade policy that was defeated in Congress, and climate change is their top priority. Coal plants are being closed, and a laundry list of rules and regulations that fills thousands of pages.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has climate change as their top priority, and now Climate Hubs are being created for more research. On top of that, the U.S. State Department has stated that climate change is more of a threat than terrorism and is a top priority. The new Department of Defense budget came out with millions of dollars proposed for, you guessed it, climate change. And even the National Weather Service has climate change as their prime directive. So we have NASA, EPA, USDA, State Department, Department of Defense and Weather Service and Climate Hubs all engaged in climate change. When is enough enough? How about one agency working on climate change and the rest doing the jobs they were created for. And as for priorities, job creation and the economy is pretty darned important and should be a priority. Again, I’m not making a judgment on this issue, just saying our approach is over the top and too spread out to be effective, and it seems to be at the expense of other important issues. Time we take a reasoned, scientific approach. Right now, politics is ruling the day. This commentary written by Lynn Ketelsen, farm director of the Linder Farm Network, was originally published on www.LinderFarmNetwork.com. ❖

In the past few years, the cost of solar has dropped dramatically, making it a viable option for those wishing to save on energy costs. The federal government has created various financial incentive programs to encourage businesses and homeowners to invest in renewables and many states and utilities are doing the same. These tax credits, grants, incentives, and depreciation make the payback on a solar pv system quick and affordable. For example, one customer received all of their investment back after one tax cycle. The customer took advantage of the 30 percent ITC, a REAP grant, a state grant, and an accelerated depreciation opportunity. This is not typical, but it does happen. Farmers who take advantage of the available incentives see a return on investment in approximately four to six years. Then the energy produced from the installation will be at

ican flour milling sector. Together the two have anointed a new number one player, Ardent; a new number three, Milner; and a new number four, Miller. Even more remarkable, perhaps, is that this wholesale change occurred without one public hearing in Congress, the courts or the press. This near-total lack of public involvement suggests that more food mergers, makeovers and consolidations will be forthcoming because these government-blessed deals are about market power on both sides of the business coin — paying farmers less for the wheat to make the flour, then charging consumers more for it. It’s an old story first told in the Good Book, then in the U.S. Congress. That last one isn’t so old. The U.S. House passed the Clayton Antitrust Act exactly 100 years ago this week, June 5, 1914.

Commentary: Remove roadblocks to feeding hungry world Farmers often face countless delays when planting and harvesting their crops. The last thing they need is a thicket of regulatory delays that hinder their ability to utilize enhanced agricultural technologies. Unfortunately, that is the case when it comes to enhanced crop traits and advanced herbicide application. It is estimated that by 2050 the world population will require 100 percent more food, with 70 percent coming from enhanced-efficiency technology. The challenges of feeding a growing world population on a fixed land base, as well as increased competition for water and other natural resources, will have significant ramifications for food security both domestically and abroad. Continued advancements in agricultural technology are critical to feeding a hungry world. Increased crop yields, mitigation of the environmental impact of agricultural practices, and development of crops that are tolerant of poor environmental conditions such as drought or excessive weeds all play an important role in America’s farmers fulfilling this important mission. For example, the Enlist Weed Control system represents one of the first new weed-control systems to hit the market in more than a decade. It combines a proprietary blend of glyphosate and 2,4-D choline with innovative crop traits that can tolerate that herbicide. The end result is a product that can kill weeds without harming crops. With more than 4,000 peer-reviewed publications

over the past six decades, no herbicide has been more studied than 2,4-D. When used according to label and product instructions, 2,4-D does not pose any unreasonable or unnecessary risk to humans, animals or the environment. Regulatory agencies in more than 70 countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia and the United States Environmental Protection Agency have authorized use of 2,4D within the last decade, based on their own rigorous evaluations of the data and potential effects of the herbicide on human health and the environment. Herbicides are vital tools in helping farmers manage one of the most significant threats to crops: weeds. Effective weed management allows for the use of fewer resources, in the form of less fertilizer, water and fuel, due to reduced tillage. The results are less soil erosion, higher crop yields, lower food prices and U.S. farmers maintaining a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Opponents of allowing farmers access to enhanced crop traits and enhanced agricultural technology continue to sow seeds of fear and misinformation, resulting in a harvest of regulatory delay. They choose to

appeal to emotion while ignoring sound science and they willfully choose to ignore that responsible practices, coupled with herbicide formulation improvements, help prevent off-target movement and harm that may harm neighboring crops caused by drift and volatility. The ongoing collaboration between farmers, sensitive crop grower groups, state regulatory agencies, the crop protection sector and projects such as DriftWatch have enhanced our understanding of enhanced agricultural technologies. It is time for the Obama administration to break the regulatory impasse that has delayed movement of enhanced technology to the marketplace. In so, the administration will provide farmers the option of avoiding additional equipment, fuel and labor expenses as they continue to practice conservation tillage — while, at the same time, effectively controlling weeds. A growing population and a hungry world await the bounty produced by America’s farmers. This commentary was submitted by Dave Ladd.

encourage youth to sample outdoor recreational opportunities. This weekend, June 6-8 is “Take a Kid Fishing Weekend.” To encourage adults to take youngsters fishing, anyone 16 or older who otherwise would need a fishing license can fish without one, so long as they are accompanied by a youth age 15 or less. The idea is simple: Make it easy and inexpensive for a non-angler to take the time to introduce a kid to the joy of wetting a line. While having access to a boat is always nice and certainly adds a dimension of adventure to plying the waters of local lakes where shorelines are mostly privately owned, it isn’t necessary. Many area lakes have public fishing piers available. A complete list of lake where the piers are installed can be found at http://goo.gl/geu32D. We pour money into our 401k, into stock market, all with the idea that it’s an investment in the future. Kids are no different. A little time spent with them next weekend, in a boat, along a shoreline, on a fishing pier, waiting for a tug on the line... It’s also an investment in the future. John Cross is a Mankato (Minn.)

THE LAND, JUNE 6, 2014

A few years ago, while cruising with a co-worker through an area community on a steamy summer day, we passed a vacant lot. There, oblivious to the heat and humidity, a group of kids were playing a game of pick-up baseball, racing down wellworn paths to makeshift bases, THE OUTDOORS shagging pop-flies in the weedy outfield. By John Cross A few decades ago, such a scene wouldn’t have attracted a second glance. But nowadays, kids playing anything outside is unusual enough that we had to circle the block and watch the young ballplayers for a few minutes. Particularly on such a hot, summer day, most kids likely were comfortable in an air-conditioned house sitting in front of a flickering computer screen. Purely an anecdotal observation, but one based on four decades of searching for photographs of youthful slices of life, kids just don’t seem to log outdoor time like they once did. It is the curse of aging, I suppose, to suggest that things were different when we were kids. We were out of the house as soon as possible to join the pick-up games of baseball that formed almost daily on the rag-tag ball diamond near the Phillips Oil bulk plant next to the Rock Island railroad tracks of my hometown. But the community also was nestled around a lake where the prospect of catching a catfish, some crappies or wonder of wonders, a walleye, sometimes held as much allure as tagging a grand slam off the neighbor kid’s round-house curve. Frequently on summer mornings, with a galvanized minnow pail swinging from the handlebars, rods poking from our saddle baskets, we’d head down to the lake to poke around the docks, the power plant, in search of finned quarry. Of course, youngsters still can be found prowling the banks of area lakes on summer days. But like the youthful baseball players, they seem to be increasingly rare. We like to think of Minnesota as a state of angling. Certainly, there are a lot of Minnesotans who fish a little and some who fish a lot. But like so many things outdoor-related, the connection with outdoor activities that once was so strong in Minnesotan’s hearts has grown more tenuous. There are so many other things to command our time and attention. There are the economics to be considered, the family structure. For whatever reason, if mom and dad don’t fish, it’s unlikely their kids will either. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources over the years has recognized the challenge and value of recruiting youthful participants into the hunting and fishing ranks. Several events, ranging from turkey to deer to small game hunting, have been held annually to

Mayo Clinic doc offers guide to ‘Stress-Free Living’ Lately, it seems as though everything sets your teeth on edge. The neighbors are way too noisy. Customer service … isn’t. Your in-laws are a bunch of ingrates. And your co-workers? Let’s not go there. You’re over just about THE BOOKWORM everything: overworked, SEZ overloaded, and overBy Terri Schlichenmeyer whelmed. But when you read “The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living” by Amit Sood, M.D., M.Sc, you might start to feel overall better. In today’s world, it’s nearly impossible not to feel strain. At least that’s how it seems, and it only gets worse as we “get hijacked by impulses, infatuation and fear,” the brain wants to “escape the present moment,” and the mind thinks everything’s a danger. Says Sood, we “struggle with what is,” which is the very definition of stress. Part of the reason for the struggle is that, when you’re awake, your brain operates in one of two ways: default or focused. You’ve undoubtedly experienced both. In focused mode, you’re so immersed in the task at hand that you forget about almost everything surrounding you. In default mode, your brain wanders like an idle shopper, moseying from problem to worry to idea, spinning and projecting future scenarios. The key is to teach yourself to stay on “focused” mode and out of the “black hole” of meandering default. Part of that can be done with “attention training,”

Minnesota students compete in state Envirothon competition Stillwater High School placed first at the Minnesota State Envirothon contest, and will advance to the regional Envirothon in Illinois. Hopkins High School received second place and St. John’s Prep earned third place. The Minnesota

event was hosted by St. John’s Outdoor University in Collegeville, Minn. This annual event is an outdoor academic competition that tests students’ knowledge of aquatics, forestry, soil and land use, wildlife, and a current

environmental topic. In addition to the state questions, students were required to compose and present a 10-minute oral presentation on the current issue, and answer questions from the panel of judges. This year’s oral presentation topic was “sustainable agriculture.” Test questions for each of the five resource stations were prepared by natural resource professionals from SWCDs, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Sustainable Farming Association, St. John’s University and many other resource experts. Sponsors of this year’s Minnesota State Envirothon competition include the local SWCDs, the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Minnesota Association of Conservation District Employees, Minnesota Corn Growers, Great River Energy, Minnesota Erosion Control Association, Minnesota Chapter of the Soil & Water Conservation Society and Cenex Harvest States. Stillwater Area High School will have the opportunity to represent Minnesota as they compete at Loyola University Chicago in Woodstock, Ill., Aug. 3-8. They will be competing with teams from nine other states in the Midwest for scholarships and prizes at the Regional Stewardship Challenge.

But to him, it was more than food for the world. It was who he was, and his identity as a farmer ran parallel to the love he had for his vocation, but especially for his milk cows.

It was a sad day a few years later when they decided they were no longer able to continue milking, and the cows left the farm. Farewells were said between man and beast, and quiet tears followed. Those quiet tears flowed again as we took this wonderful man to his final place of rest. He returned to the land he loved so much, to be part of it in a different — and perhaps, more personal — way.

Family dairy farm takes leap as micro creamery By TIM KING The Land Correspondent FOREST LAKE, Minn. — “Is it too early in the morning for a chocolate treat?” Florence Daninger asks two 11 a.m. visitors to Autumnwood Farm’s on-farm micro creamery in rural Washington County. When she learns it’s not too early she takes a glass pint jar of chocolate milk from the well-stocked retail cooler, and pours out sample cups of the creamery’s chocolate milk. Autumnwood’s chocolate milk is made from whole milk from the farm’s Holstein herd, and rich dark chocolate. For those unfamiliar with whole milk, a glass of Autumnwood choco-

late milk will seem as thick and tasty as a chocolate milk shake. “We use a slower pasteurization process with a lower heat so we are able to retain a raw milk flavor but still meet all the pasteurization requirements of the Department of Agriculture,” said Pat Daninger, Florence’s son. “The glass bottles also help preserve the flavor and keep the milk colder when you set the bottle on the table for a meal,” Shar, Pat’s wife, said. The Daningers bottle skim, 1 per-

cent, whole and chocolate milk in glass pints and half gallons. They also bottle Creamline, which is non-homogenized whole milk, along with half-andhalf, cream, and pumpkin spice eggnog in season. “We can’t keep up with the demand for the egg nog,” Pat said. “People start placing their orders in September.” Pat’s grandparents, Frank and Stephanie, started the farm in 1902. Pat’s father, Mike, took it over 40 years later, just before beginning his military service. He left the farm under the care of his 19 year-old brother, Tom. When he returned from war in 1945 he began managing the farm. Mike and Florence, who is a former school teacher, were married in 1953 and operated the farm until early in this century. “Prior to his dad’s death he gave Pat permission to sell the farm,” Florence said. “Pat wouldn’t sell it. He said

there was too much history here.” Pat intended to honor his elder’s history but he also intended to place Autumnwood Farm firmly in the 21st century. Major expansion, in the increasingly ex-urban area of Forest Lake, was out of the question. “At the time I was reading a lot about how more and more people wanted to know where their food came from,” Pat said. Through a round-about series of connections he learned of an on-farm dairy in Kansas and through them learned of a man in Arkansas who was an expert in putting together micro creameries with used equipment. “If I had purchased new equipment it would have cost me a million dollars,” Pat said. “With his help we were able to do this for $200,000.” But even with the lower cost, the Daninger family was required to take a huge leap of faith into an unknown future. They sent the Arkansas expert, a veritable stranger, a $40,000 down See DANINGER, pg. 13


Assemblage of creamery makes for strange arrivals “We are responsible for stocking our own shelves and we take back any milk that doesn’t sell before expiration,” Pat said. “We can feed that milk to our calves so it isn’t wasted.” Shar and Florence operate the retail store on the farm. The store is open noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

the Twin Cities that Autumnwood Dairy serves. “The coffee shops really like our whole milk because it is nice and frothy for lattes,” she said. Smith also takes products to numerous retail outlets in the Twin Cities including Mississippi Market, eight Cub Foods locations, seven Festival Foods stores and eight Kowalski’s locations, among others.

Farm store offers other locally produced goods DANINGER, from pg. 13 “People have lots of questions and this is a great opportunity to educate the public,” Florence said. “People really enjoy coming directly to the farm where the milk comes from,” Shar said. “Even driving down a gravel road is an adventure for some people.” In addition to selling Autumnwood Farm products, Shar has spent a lot of time finding other locally produced farm products such as honey, maple syrup and sausage to sell in the store. “We want to support other farmers in the area,” Shar said. “It also helps with our sales.” The family is also deeply involved in community organizations such as FFA, 4-H, and the American Dairy Association. The Daninger family supports the community and the community supports them. “In years past we have had a farm and city day,” Shar said. For the 2013 farm and city day more than a thousand people visited the farm, asked questions, took tours, went on hay rides, watched cows being milked and had a fun and educational experience. This year, however, there will be no farm and city day because their daughter is graduating from high school. Operating the creamery has enriched the Daninger family’s lives. It has also added a complexity to their lives, which includes employees, retail sales, distribution, and more intensive sanitation and inspection requirements. The micro creamery has also connected them with the people who drink their milk in a way that selling milk as a commodity never would. ❖ Jan king

With expansion of the dairy farm out of the question, Pat Daninger decided to open a micro creamery on his family’s farm.

From the Fields: Mother Nature cooperates, finally The Thronsons Gary, Minn.

As of May 28, Dennis Wilts can close the book on the 2014 planting season. What a long, rainy season it was. The Land spoke with him on May 29 as he was getting

The Hagens ❖ Lake Mills, Iowa ❖ Winnebago County corn and soybeans

ready to “start spraying wheat tomorrow.” Wilts was able to finish planting thanks to the spotty showers that, for the most part, missed his fields. Only 10 miles north they received four Dennis Wilts inches of rain on May 26 — rain that wasn’t needed in that quantity or at that time. Reflecting on how the planting this year went, he admits that “you always have a few problems” but luckily it was “nothing too major, just typical little stuff.” The crops seem to be doing well as is evident in what Wilts sees in the field: “Everything that’s coming up looks real good.” Wilts started planting wheat on April 21 and didn’t finish until May 22 due to the rain. Ideally the crops would’ve been in the ground a lot sooner — “10 days earlier would’ve been nice” — although the recent moisture and heat are helping all the crops get growing. He expects to “basically do a lot of spraying in the next few weeks.” While the planter is still out and waiting to be put away, Wilts is already looking at readying his harvest equipment for the fall push. He will be working on checking over the header and sugar beet equipment. The rush to get the crop in is over and the growing season is under way, which gives way for Wilts to “take a little time off to go to the grandkids’ baseball games.” That’s just a part of what makes summer so great out on

the farm — crops growing tall and the opportunity to get away and enjoy cheering on some important little ones.

The Hoffmans New Ulm, Minn.

The 2014 corn planting is in the books for Don Hoffman. Hoffman spoke with The Land on May 27, and he noted that the Don Hoffman field conditions were mostly dry — “we went around three or four wet spots.” In his neck of the woods, he said there aren’t many fields that weren’t planted. The corn that was planted on May 7 is “up and looks good,” he said, adding that that some of the beans were up as well. Now that the crop is in the ground, Hoffman is preparing for “cutting hay tomorrow or Thursday.” It’s time to “get the haying equipment out of the shed.” Ideally Hoffman would like the first hay cutting no later than June 1, so he’s right on schedule. He is hopeful that “Mother Nature might give us that opportunity.” He estimates that they could be done by Friday night. The heat and humidity have arrived at the Hoffman farm but so far it hasn’t affected milk production of the cows. Hoffman notes that the “sprinkler system is working just fine.” He’ll be doing a herd health check and pregnancy checking all eligible cows. He’s also working on “changing out

The Hagens Lake Mills, Iowa

Some rain, having the crops all planted, and finally the arrival of warm weather all make Jim Hagen one happy guy. Jim Hagen The Land spoke with Hagen on May 27 as he reported that he finished up planting four days prior. “Finished beans last Friday,” Hagen said. Planting “went good” on the fairly dry ground. He managed to get the soybeans planted in six days. Even though beans went well, it fell a week behind when he typically has them in the ground. Rainfall has been manageable for Hagen as a half-inch fell the previous night, with more expected in the coming days. “The rain last night was perfect,” Hagen said. Coupled with warm temperatures, it’s helping “the crops look good right now.” The weather was conducive for Hagen’s neighbors to get all their crops in the ground, too. “Everybody’s finished up around the area.” Even during planting time a birthday is cause for celebration. His father, Gordon, celebrated his 75th birthday “by working out in the field,” he said. Gordon is out at the farm every day. “He’s the money, I’m the muscle,” Hagen joked, knowing that both are equally vital on the farm. The weather “looks like it’s going to be pretty warm,” he said.When the weather gets warm, things start to grow, and grow fast — including weeds. “I’ll start spraying in a few days,” Hagen said, an activity that “seems to never end.” He believes that “the grass in the lawn is growing fast so the corn should be, too.” Let’s hope the spraying keeps the weeds out, and the corn — and lawn— growing strong. ❖

Another day with the planter, another day closer to having all the crops in the ground and the 2014 planting season complete. The Land spoke with Jared Thronson Jared Thronson on May 28 as he was planting soybeans and counting down the acres until he was done. The weather changed his original planting plans but he knows by now that sometimes change is necessary for a successful crop. “I ended up getting 160 acres of corn total,” Thronson said. That being said, he “only planted half the corn I was planning.” But as the days passed and corn seed sat in the bag rather than being put in the ground thanks to a wet spring, Thronson knew he needed to make a change. He last planted corn on May 20 then decided to change half his corn acres to soybeans. How does he feel about his decision to change crops during planting? “I’m happy about it.” He hopes this will translate into a “nicer fall; less corn to deal with.” Thronson said he could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel — “I’m on the last field of beans.” With about 150 acres of beans and 25 acres of wheat to plant, he expects to complete planting by Friday, just in time to be best man in his good friend’s wedding that weekend. While the weather didn’t cooperate when Thronson initially wanted to get in the field, it’s been behaving ever since. “I haven’t been rained out since we got going last week.” The rain has stayed away and the temperatures have risen, both essential to get this crop in. Once planting is complete he’ll begin “getting things ready to spray,” and savor the fact that “things will be slower and more relaxed.” After the spring Thronson’s had, he’s ready for a smooth summer.

some mattresses in the barn.” Hoffman currently uses mattresses that contain chopped-up rubber; he’ll be replacing those with a one-inch-thick rubber mat “the cows seem to like a lot.” Not a simple task, “it takes two to three guys to work on that project.” With crops planted and cows happy, Hoffman believes this spring is “off to a flying start.”

Get the auctioneers’ angles on Fanks’ big Massey sale By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Interviewed during Gerald and Charlotte Fank’s auction in Cosmos, Minn., LaDon Henslin called this the largest sale of Massey Harris / Massey Ferguson gear he’s aware of, with internet buyers around the world and a huge crowd at the sale. “It’s just an honor for us to call this sale,” said Henslin, of Henslin Auctions, Bird Island, Minn. “Gerald and Charlotte have done such an incredible job putting this collection together. This combination of internet buyers plus serious bidders here on the sale ground is generating some wild money. This is a good example of the tremendous changes that have taken place in the auction business the past few years.” A few auction highlights observed in the memorabilia tent: • $25 for a 1955 Massey Ferguson calendar • $100 for a 1955 MF tractor manual • $120 for an 85 MF owner’s manual. • $110 for a red MF straw hat. • $45 for a MF yardstick. • $625 for a MF wall clock. • $100 for empty MF cream separator oil can. • $200 for a MF coverall. • $32 for a set of four matchbooks (internet sale into Canada). • $10 for 2 MF marbles. • $240 for 39 belt buckles mounted on a wooden “barn front” frame. One of the more astounding prices paid for memorabilia was $2,700 for an 18-inch x 5-foot Massey Harris antique metal sign. Olivia, Minn., farmer Jim Zenk recalls selling that sign to Gerald Fank for $100 about 20 years ago. Zenk had “salvaged” the sign from an old building that used to house Nat Kuske, an Olivia implement dealer who handled

the Massey Harris farm equipment dating back to pre-WWII days. The Henslin auctioneering crew at the Fank Sale included LaDon, his son Allen, Frank Roering, plus ring workers catching bids. Allen, only 26, is already recognized as one of the best in the trade. How does he prep for a sale of this magnitude? “Once the sale starts it’s just getting into a good rhythm and keeping a good steady tempo,” said the younger Henslin. “The most important thing when calling a sale is your breathing. Make certain you’re taking good breaths and you’re not overworking your voice.”

He started selling when he was 20 during his second year of college after first going to Auction School at Mason City, Iowa. “I was deathly afraid of getting up and talking in front of people,” he said. “I simply had a fear of public speaking, but my Dad convinced me I had to overcome that and the best way was to go to auction school. I just fell in love with it after that.” Allen’s Granddad was a Massey Harris dealer. He died when he was only 40 years old; LaDon was six. “That’s why this will be a sale I will always remember,” he said. ❖

Prospecting on his own sale, Fank said, “I rather expect this will be an older bunch attending but I’d rather sell the tractors a little cheaper and see more younger people getting into perpetuating some of our agricultural history.” Along that line he hoped to see some father-and-son teams getting into the business of collecting and restoring old-time farm equipment.

of Massey equipment and collectibles. “We’re now retired and it’s time to let other people enjoy these items. We can’t keep maintaining everything. We’ve done this as a team for 40 years. I learned mechanics from my dad. Before he taught me to drive he said ‘you’re first going to learn all the important parts of this car.’ Once we got married we quickly learned this was something we could do together and enjoy.” Their ambitions now include traveling across America, “like hanging out in Wyoming or Montana. Maybe just get out and do some prairie dog hunting,” she said. Gerald Fank said he’ll miss putzing around with his old tractors, but that at some point in life he had to say enough was enough. “Hopefully the next generation will step up and get into old farming memorabilia and tractors,” he said, “because we’ve got to have someone carry on that heritage.” ❖

MASSEY, from pg. 17 on steel wheels. At the Fank sale he bought a Massey Harris six-cylinder GP. What does Boyd do with his collection of steel-wheeled antiques? “I just play around with them; rebuild as needed.” This auction included a couple of oldtimers with crawler treads. Fank explained that, back in the 1950s, Massey was going to get into the crawler business to provide for the highway and road builders. “They produced a handful of test crawlers; put them out for testing but soon called them all back in to the factory. Nobody really seems to know why,” said Fank, noting that at one time Massey was also connected with Cletrac and a company called General to start producing smaller farm and garden rigs. That lineup, however, was eventually sold to Oliver Manufacturing of Charles City, Iowa, and marketed as the Oliver Cletrac. The Massey Harris names stems from the merger of Massey Manufacturing and A. Harris, Son & Co. in 1891. The new Massey Harris company produced threshers, reapers and bicycles for years, adding tractors to their stable in the 1930s. Somewhat surprising is the fact that one of their first tractors built was the MH 76” 4WD. That’s right, a four-wheel-drive tractor back in 1930. This was pre-rubber tires, so wheels were all steel on this rig. Massey Harris merged with

Land roller’s history rooted in Fosston farmer’s fall By CAROLYN VAN LOH The Land Correspondent Falling 10 feet from a scaffold and landing on his head while working on a construction project changed Matthew Albrecht’s life in a way he never would have anticipated. Albrecht, who has been farming near Fosston in northwestern Minnesota “all my life,” started buying calves when he was five years old. Construction played an important part in the farming operation through the years. “We needed a building, we built it,” he said. When he graduated from high school, working in construction provided extra income during the less busy times on the farm. As soon as the snow disappeared, constructions projects began. He has built a house, a church, pole barns, warehouses and hunting houses. Nine and a half years ago, Albrecht was working on a one-story house with a walk-out basement when a section of scaffolding broke loose, hitting him in the back and pushing him off his section of the scaffold. “I could hear crunching and cracking as I fell,” he recalls. The C2 and C6 vertebrae were shattered. “It’s a flat-out miracle that the scaffold fell apart. It shouldn’t have.” While recovering in the hospital, Albrecht realized that God had another plan for him. Soybean fields were ready to harvest, so a week later Albrecht, who had left the hospital wearing a halo, walked out to his combine. “I can do this,” he thought. “It was just one of those things. We had to get the crop out.”

The following summer, he tried construction, but that activity intensified the pain in his back. Realizing that farming was an easier option, the Albrechts transitioned their efforts to expanding the farm. More land meant larger equipment. One day while shopping for a larger combine at the local Titan dealer, he saw a land roller he liked, but decided he could build one for less money. When the dealer came to the farm so Albrecht could sign papers on the combine, the man said, “I like it.” He commissioned Albrecht to make two for him. Looking back, Albrecht said, “God sent someone that day to open the door for us. We had nothing. No supplies. It was off the cuff, but it worked. It wasn’t our plan.” Starting small with no business or marketing plan, he seized the opportunity to build land rollers on his farm.

The McSems brand name is unique because forms an acrostic of the Albrecht family names: • Matthew (dad) • Clara (daughter) • Shannon (mother) • Eli (son) • Malachi (son) • Senora (daughter) Albrecht now purchases drums by the semi load from Texas. His son Eli cuts the steel, and Albrecht does the welding. Their goal is to give small to medium-sized farmers a fair deal. He builds rollers to suit the needs of the buyer. Finished sizes range from 3 1/2 feet to 50 feet. One time a UPS driver making a delivery ordered an 8-foot roller to help him prepare food plots for deer. Today the family farms over 1,000 acres, and they plan to double the size of the shop this summer. In the “iffy” category are plans to purchase a robotic welder and a computerized band saw. “The tools make a huge difference,” Albrecht said. He doesn’t need to market his product; customers come to him. He does run an ad in a couple papers, but cancels the ad when he has enough orders to keep him busy during the winter months. “God is blessing us, and I trust that He will send the people we need. One in 10 callers will usually buy, but we average six in 10.” Last fall Albrecht promised $1,000 “before the end of the year” to help finance a missions trip to the Ukraine. He remembers giving the money on Dec. 10. The next day he sold four rollers, and in the following two weeks he sold enough rollers to keep him busy for a year. Two years after Albrecht’s fall, his wife, Shannon, was hospitalized when a rare birth defect was diagnosed. Surgery to remove all but three feet of both intestines resulted in a major lifestyle change for her. Despite their physical hardships, the couple’s faith in God carries them through the challenging times. “God provides. It’s been very rewarding,” Albrecht said. “You gotta have faith that God will take care of you.” Call (218) 435-1447 for more information. ❖

The report states many key milk and dairy product prices continued to set records in April. And while the dairy futures markets indicate that prices will soon ease back from these levels, the futures have been moderating their assessment of how far prices will adjust downward. Futures markets currently indicate that milk prices will plateau for much of the second half of 2014 at about the highest level ever reached prior to this year.

World milk production outpacing the United States MIELKE, from pg. 23 export shipments, moderate to little increased milk and dairy product production and significant drawdown of domestic dairy product inventories. Markets had previously anticipated swifter and sharper reactions, on both the demand and supply sides. This has not occurred as expected, giving longer legs to the current dairy price situation and outlook. A concurrent general decline in the cost of dairy feed is resulting in very favorable milk price margins over feed costs. Current milk price-feed cost margins, as measured by the 2014 farm bill margin formula, will not reach record levels this year, but they will generally rival the only other extended episode of extraordinarily high margins, when this indicator established its current record, in the second half of 2007. Read the complete report at www.nmpf.org/files/file/DMRMay2014_1.pdf. A big factor as to what lay ahead is milk production and manufacturing milk supplies heading into the Memorial Day holiday weekend were heavy, according to DMN. Milk demand for bottling was generally lower. Milk production is building in the Midwest, Pacific Northwest, Utah and Idaho; steady in New Mexico, Arizona and California; and steady to easing along the East Coast. ■ The big factor in milk production, of course, is feed. The Ag Department’s latest Crop Progress report issued this week shows 88 percent of the

nation’s corn has been planted, up from 73 percent the previous week, up from 84 percent on this week a year ago, and dead even with the five-year average. All 18 of the states show corn emerged, or 60 percent, up from 34 percent the previous week, up from 49 percent a year ago, but lags the five-year average by 4 percent. Fifty-nine percent of the soybean crop was in the ground, as of the week ending May 25, up from 33 percent the previous week, up from 41 percent a year ago, and 3 percent ahead of the five-year average. Seed is in the ground in all of the top 18 states that made up 95 percent of the 2013 soybean acreage. The data shows 25 percent of soybeans are emerged, up from 9 percent the week before, up from 12 percent a year ago, and 2 percent behind the five-year average. Sixty-two percent of the cotton crop planted, up from 46 percent the week before, up from 56 percent a year ago, and 2 percent behind the five-year average. Tom Wedegaertner, Cotton Incorporated’s Director of Research and Marketing, said in Friday’s DairyLine that data tells him “we are right on track with planting this year and the really good news in that most of the crop is in Texas.” Over 50 percent of U.S. cotton is grown there, he said, and planting conditions there are “spectacular; we haven’t seen these kinds of soil moisture levels in a long time.” The other good news is the increased supply, according to Wedegaertner. More acres are being planted this year compared to last year, he said, the weather looks really good, “so the supply side is look-

MARKETING

ing good.” However, he quickly adds that the demand side is also strong, “so most people in the business are predicting fairly strong prices going forward.” He pointed out that old crop cottonseed prices are very strong because we had a short crop last year; in fact, the last couple years has been a short crop, “but going into this fall and the new crop, it looks like there’s a fairly good discount, going into this fall.” “If a person wanted to book new crop cottonseed for fall delivery, the prices I think are looking fairly attractive,” he said. Complete details are available at www.wholecottonseed.com. ■ Meanwhile, world milk production appears to be outpacing the United States. Milk production in the EU continues to be strong, but has moved beyond the seasonal peak. Milk volumes have leveled off in Germany and have marginally declined in France. Favorable weather, good margins and the likelihood of lower farm gate prices in the future are prompting farmers to maximize milk production. Drying facilities are no longer operating at capacity levels as additional dryers have come online and milk volumes have begun to decline. Australian milk production has benefited from a period of unseasonably warm temperatures with highs near 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The warm weather has prompted some good pasture growth and allowed milk production to hang on and, in some areas, marginally increase. The forecast for the likelihood of an “El Nino” weather pattern, increasing the possibility of drought, has raised concerns with some producers and restricted planned herd expansions. Dairy Australia reports April milk production was up 5.6 percent from April 2013. Australia’s milk production season to date (July-April) is down 0.8 percent, compared to last season. New Zealand milk production continues to decline and wind down seasonally with more cows being dried off and moved to winter pastures. Some manufacturing plants are shutting down for year-end maintenance. Where possible, some producers are extending the milking season, incentivized by the relatively high milk price and good margins. Spot sales are continuing for some commodities, especially milk powders, as manufacturers adjust inventory levels prior to the end of the fiscal year. March milk production was reported by DCANZ at 1.76 million tons, up 22 percent from March 2013. Cooperatives Working Together accepted four requests for export assistance this week to sell 328,489 pounds of Cheddar cheese and 330,693 pounds of 82 percent butter to customers in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and the South Pacific. The product will be delivered through July 2014. Year-to-date, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in selling 53.414 million pounds of cheese, 46.284 million pounds of butter and 10.337 million pounds of whole milk powder to 39 countries on six continents. These sales are the equivalent of 1.610 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis, according to CWT. Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

Bacteria may improve low-fat products, help producers Consumers may have more palatable low-fat products and milk producers a solution to an industry-wide problem through use of a unique strain of lactic acid bacteria, according to Ashraf Hassan, associate professor of dairy science at South Dakota State University. Low-fat products tend to have inferior texture and flavor because removing fat makes their structure rubbery, he explained. After examining bacteria from the dairy environment for more than 15 years, Hassan found a strain that mimics fat. Some bacteria produce polysaccharides which can contain hundreds of sugar molecules, such as glucose, attached to one another. They bind significant amounts of water, according to

Hassan. The strain Hassan discovered produces polysaccharides with high water binding capacity that then improves the quality of low-fat dairy products. “They give the same mouth feel (as fat) by increasing the thickness and giving smoothness,” he added. Hassan first used the bacteria to make low-fat cheese, which the nationally recognized SDSU dairy products judging team could not discern from regular highfat cheese. The bacteria’s patent-pending application has been licensed to a multinational dairy ingredients company. But that’s only the beginning. The polysaccharide produced by this strain also improves the functionality of proteins recovered from the cheese by product,

SDSU dairy science associate professor Ashraf Hassan and doctoral student Nuria Garcia are refining an enzyme extracted from a unique bacterial strain that removes buildup called biofilm in dairy equipment. whey, Hassan explained. This proteinpolysaccharide mixture can be dried and added to salad dressing, mayonnaise or even processed meats like sausage. Its gelling properties will help make products that “firm quickly and have a much stronger body,” he said. Not only does this add value to the whey, but the mixture reduces manufacturing costs, he said. When mixed with polysaccharide, less protein is needed to give the same effect. Furthermore, the polysaccharide pro-

duced by this strain minimizes the negative impact of heat on milk protein during pasteurization, according to Hassan. Essentially, heat breaks down protein, a process called denaturation, but the bacteria encapsulate protein, thereby maintaining more of its nutritional value. This unique polysaccharide will also address a long-standing problem in the dairy industry — the formation of biofilm on milk processing equipment, Hassan noted. Milk bacteria attach to contact surfaces and form colonies that can resist traditional cleaning methods. The bacteria Hassan identified interfere with the formation of these biofilms, possibly mitigating this industrywide problem. Because plaque is a classic case of biofilm developing on a person’s teeth, this discovery may also translate into better human hygiene, according to Hassan. Eating yogurt made with these bacteria may help reduce plaque and prevent tooth decay. To explore this possibility, Hassan is collaborating with a researcher from University of Iowa’s School of Dentistry to apply for funding from the National Institutes of Health. ❖

Grain Angles Turning back the clock

The following market analysis is for the week ending May 30. CORN — You knew it was coming, but your attention was demanded elsewhere. December corn is now 58 cents off the April 7 high and the crop in the ground is looking pretty good. We’ve seen this sort of action before, only to have Mother Nature spin the wheel and crush our hope for never-ending streams of gold into the combine. Are we looking for that to occur this year? At this juncture, I’m not going to count on it. Overall, moisture is in good shape around the country, temNYSTROM peratures have plants screaming PHYLLIS CHS Hedging Inc. out of the ground, and we have St. Paul caught up on late planting. The areas that are having planting problems due to excess moisture are shrinking. This doesn’t discount the fact that we could see corrections higher if conditions warrant, but from what level? Funds are holding much more length than they were last year at this time and we’re about $1.10 lower for new crop than we were last year. We’ll see the first crop condition report June 2 which should show the crop in good shape. Last year’s initial crop rating was 63 percent. Last year, we saw December corn plummet nearly 48 cents from June 1 to June 17 before it rallied to regain nearly all of the fall in two days; it was all downhill from there. Watch for opportunities that fit into your marketing plan. December corn settled for the week at $4.57 1/2 per bushel, down 17 3/4 cents.

Livestock markets slumped through the Memorial Day holiday week not only in price but in product sales. This all despite the improved weather conditions which are conducive to an increase in grilling. Adequate supplies of both live cattle and hogs seem to be enough to keep the price direction on the defensive. The cattle market saw a big change in the basis as we approached June. The futures market rallied from a fairly large discount to cash, while the cash trade saw just the opposite as prices dropped during the past few weeks. This brought the basis more in-line historically and is JOE TEALE likely to continue into the first Broker half of the month. The number of Great Plains Commodity market-ready cattle is beginning Afton, Minn. to increase, which it normally does this time of the year. With the packer margin moving back toward a positive for the packer, this could keep the market on the defensive for several more weeks. Demand as it has been continues to be a concern, as product movement is still less that what has been in past years. It is beginning to appear that the highs in prices during February are going to stand for a while in the live market. Until the beef cut out can penetrate through the $240.00 cwt. basis choice, it is unlikely that a substantial rally can be sustained at this time. That appears to leave the market more vulnerable to further weakness during the month of June. Producers should stay aware of market conditions and protect their inventories against adverse price movements.

The recent swoon in grain prices, along with uncomfortably high land costs and input prices, has many producers wishing they could turn back the clock a few years to a simpler time. History demonstrates long-term cycles of profitability in the grain markets. In the last 15 years, many producers may have experienced the lowest and the highest grain prices in their farming careers. I have worked with many longterm clients through these highs and lows in the markets. Most of them would agree that farming in the lean years made them learn how to be a better farmer and financial manager. They WACHTLER learned valuable lessons that GLENN AgStar Assistant VP, they’ve been able to apply to their Financial Services operations today, which has Baldwin, Wisc. helped them make the most of any situation they face. So, you might be asking, “How have these same excellent producers managed through the higher commodity, land, and input prices of the last several years?” Here are just some of the challenges that I’m seeing producers face right now. • High asset prices and income tax deferral strategies have caused financial statements to expand relative to the size and scope of the business. It is important that the assets and liabilities are supported by adequate revenue. • The cash flow requirements for land, labor, and capital still reflect the higher grain prices of the last several years. Think twice before taking on new obli-

Market still trying to balance old crop, new crop NYSTROM, from pg. 29 Old crop corn fell into the same pattern as new crop, July corn was down 12 1/4 cents for the week to settle at $4.65 3/4 per bushel. It was classic this week as the board fell and basis levels improved, mainly in markets tributary to the river system for export. Trade chatter was speckled with talk about the quality of old crop bushels; the bushels are there, but are they “really” there? Basis levels and discount schedules will be sensitive to the issue. Weekly export sales were the largest in the last four weeks at 24.5 million bushels when only approximately 11 million bushels per week are need to hit the U.S. Department of Agriculture export forecast for 1.9 billion bushels. With 14 full weeks left in the marketing year, we have 95 percent of the total export projection committed. New crop sales were 3.6 million bushels, but we’re still 72 million bushels behind last year’s pace. China sold 53 percent of the 3.5 mmt of reserve corn they auctioned this week as processing margins improve. Weekly ethanol production for the week ending May 23 was the highest in six weeks at 927,000 barrels per day, up 2,000 barrels per day from the previous week. Since the beginning of the crop year, annualized grind has run at a rate of 5.065 billion bushels. The latest USDA forecast is 5.050 billion bushels. Ethanol stocks were up 21 million gallons for the week at 735 million gallons. This is their highest

level since April 2013. Gasoline demand last week was the highest since July 2010. As of June 1, corn planting is expected to be 90 percent to 95 percent complete versus 88 percent last week and 95 percent on average. OUTLOOK: July corn gapped lower when we restarted after the long Memorial Day weekend and really never looked back. The gap from $4.75 to $4.75 1/2 will stand as first resistance with first support at near $4.56 1/2 per bushel. There is nothing very magical about that figure with the huge Goldman index fund roll set to begin June 6. If end-user buying rears its head, it could give old crop a bounce. December corn’s trend is lower, although watch weather for direction. Support in the December is between $4.40 and $4.50 per bushel with first resistance at $4.72 1/4 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybean trades returned from Memorial Day with their selling shoes on, but then spent the rest of the week in sideways mode. The market is still trying to balance a tight old crop balance sheet with a good start to new crop bushels. Focus can switch from one to the other on a

Locking in prices that support debt payments, family living and a modest profit is never a bad decision. This can avoid an equity loss in uncertain times. • Difficulty in communicating financial discipline to family, partners, and business successors. Many budgets have expanded in the last several years. Develop a positive message and build support for trimming the budget during a strategy session. Share your knowledge from the past with others that may not have experienced the tougher times, but position your message well in advance. It is difficult to build consensus for budget

daily basis. July soybeans closed down 22 1/4 cents for the week at $14.93 1/4 per bushel, but held trendline support. November soybeans settled out the week on a weak note, down 32 cents at $12.33 3/4 per bushel. It is testing trendline support, but closed below the 14-day moving average support line. Weekly export sales continue to run ahead of what we need. Old crop sales were 2.2 million bushels when we need them to run a negative 800,000 bushels per week in the remaining 14 weeks of the marketing year. Total sales commitments for 2013-14 are 1.651 billion bushels when the USDA is forecasting exports sales of 1.6 billion bushels. New crop sales were an impressive 30 million bushels, bringing total new crop sales to 345 million bushels. Export sales for 2014-15 are projected at 1.625 billion bushels. China’s bean inventories at their ports are thought to be in the 6.8 mmt vicinity versus just 3.8 mmt a year ago. The record for port stocks is 7.0 mmt. China successfully auctioned off 81 percent of the 300,000 mt reserve soybeans they offered this week. They also bought 110,000 mt of U.S. new crop beans this week.

acres. The projected crop size could reach a record 94 mmt. The USDA is currently predicting a 91 mmt crop for Brazil in 2014-15. The first cargoes of Brazilian beans to hit the East Coast arrived this week at Wilmington and Norfolk. According to news reports, the United States has unloaded or is about to unload 9.2 million bushels of South America soybeans with another 12.6 million waiting to load for the United States. The USDA is forecast a record 90 million bushels of bean imports this year. U.S. planting is estimated at 70 percent to 75 percent complete as of June 1, right at the average pace. Last week we were 59 percent complete. OUTLOOK: Soybeans feel like they would like to break lower, but just can’t commit to the direction. If the weather develops as advertised, rallies should be hard to maintain. November soybeans are in a $12.06 to $12.80 range and the July in a $14.40 to $15.40 range. The downside may be limited on the uncertainty over whether or not we have solved the tight old crop balance sheet. It’s a balancing act for soybeans. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending May 30 — Chicago July wheat crashed 25 1/4 cents lower, Minneapolis fell 19 cents and Kansas City dropped 22 cents. July crude oil decline $1.64 to $102.71, ULSD tumbled 6 3/4 cents lower, gasoline was 3 1/2 cents lower, and natural gas rallied 13 3/4 cents.

Hogs continue to slide TEALE, from pg. 29 The hog market continues to slide as hog numbers seem to be sufficient to meet packer’s needs. The PED Virus has not played a significant role over the past month or so and the weight and the number of hogs has provided adequate supplies of pork. Cash has be the primary reason for the weakness while optimism has kept the futures at a strong premium. This premium in the futures is the anticipation of the effects that PEDV will have on the supply of hogs in the future. There seems to be a consensus in the industry that the summer into the fall

months will be the period when the available hogs for slaughter will be the tightest. With the cash and futures markets nearing oversold conditions, the likelihood of a rally is increasing. As noted by the earlier rally in the pork cutout this spring, demand for pork began to wane at the higher price levels, and this could happen again if the predictions are accurate on the tight supply situation if it develops. Therefore, producers should remain cautious and be alert to market conditions and take advantage of any excess premiums offered to protect their inventories. ❖

Over the next few months, we will analyze the many choices that producers and landowners will need to make for enrollment in the new U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency farm programs later this year. This article will focus on the decision surrounding the allowable updating of FSA program yields. 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 USDA 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 Agriculture Risk Coverage program. Sign-up for reallocating crop base acreage, and updating farm program payment yields will likely start by late summer at local FSA offices, while sign-up for the various farm program choices will likely not occur until later this fall. Producers will have a one-time choice between the revenue-based ARC program, and the PLC program. The PLC program will function similarly to the previous counter-cyclical program, with program payments made if the 12-month national average price falls below the established reference price (target price) for a given crop. The marketing period for the 12-month price for corn and soybeans is Sept. 1 in the year that the crop was produced until Aug. 31 of the following year. PLC payments would be made in October of the year following production of the crop, and will be made on 85 percent of eligible crop base

PROGRAMS, from pg. 31 Example Farm No. 2 — This example farm unit has existing corn, soybean, and wheat crop base acreage. The farm unit was planted to all corn acres in 2008, 2010 and 2012, with all soybean acres planted in 2009 and 2011, with no wheat acres. The farm owner could choose to update the farm program corn yield to 165 bushels per acre for the PLC program; however, the average soybean yield is lower than the existing CCP yield of 40 bushels per acre, which would continue as the FSA program yield. If wheat base acres are continued, the existing CCP yield of 40 bushels per acre will be the FSA program yield from 2014-18. Example Farm No. 3 — This example farm unit has existing corn, soybean, and wheat crop base acreage corn. Some corn and soybean acres were planted each year (2008-12) on the farm unit, and some wheat acres were planted in 2008 and 2011. It should be noted that the 2009 soybean yield on the farm unit (*) was lower than 75 percent of the average county yield from 2008-12 of 30 bu./acre, which was used as a “plug yield.” The average corn yield is lower than the existing CCP yield of 140 bushels per acre, which would continue as the FSA program yield. The farm owner could choose to update the farm program yields to 37 bushels per acre for soybeans, and to 44 bushels per acre for wheat, which would then be used as FSA program yields from 2014-18. Considerations regarding updating FSA program yields • The decision to update FSA farm program yields is a one-time decision, and will only affect potential FSA farm program payments for the PLC farm program option from 2014-18. • The update of FSA farm program yields is crop specific, and will be made on the basis of FSA farm units, thus decisions may vary from crop-to-crop, and on different farm units. • Updating FSA program yields is a voluntary decision, and a “no decision” will result in the existing CCP yields remaining in place as FSA program yields for 2014-18. • Current CCP program yields were based on 93.5 percent (0.935) of the average farm yield for a crop from 1998-2001. If the 2008-12 yield for that crop times 90 percent (0.90) is greater than the CCP yield, then there is likely an advantage to updating the FSA farm program yield. • Many typical CCP yields in Minnesota are in the range of 135-150 bushels per acre for corn and 32-44 bushels per acre for soybeans. If CCP yields were not updated in the 2002 farm bill, the direct payment yields are still in place as CCP yields, which are at much lower levels. • FSA program yields will be used to determine farm program payments for the new PLC farm program option, but not for the county-based and individual-based ARC program options. • The updating of FSA program yields for a given

PROGRAMS, from pg. 32 crop on a FSA farm unit is based on the average crop yields on that farm unit in each year that the crop was raised from 2008-12. • Many times, FSA farm units are different than federal crop insurance farm units, so yield verification requirements will likely be different. Crop insurance agents should be able to assist producers with the required FSA documentation on most farm units. • All PLC farm program payments are calculated on the basis of crop base acres (201418), 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 from 2008-2012. In that case, the existing CCP yield would continue as the FSA PLC program yield for 2014-2018. • On rented farms, producers will need to work with landowners regarding the best decision for updating FSA program yields, as landowners will need to sign the final decision at FSA offices. • The updated FSA program yields 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. • FSA procedures for establishing farm program

USDA census profiles Minnesota, Iowa agriculture The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service released the final 2012 Census of Agriculture results sharing a wide-range of information about what agricultural products were raised in the United States in 2012, and where, how and by whom they were grown. The data, which is reported at the national, state and county level, will help farmers, ranchers, local officials, agribusiness and others make decisions for the future. “Census data provides the foundation of information needed to design programs and initiatives that support agriculture and serve the farmers across Minnesota”, said Dave Frederickson, Minnesota Commissioner of Agriculture. “The Census of Ag is an extremely valuable snapshot of agriculture in Iowa and across the nation that helps tell the story of our state’s farmers,” said Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. “The results released today again show the tremendous economic impact of agriculture on our state’s economy and the importance of Iowa agriculture nationally.

valuable information about the conservation practices used on farms, showing that farmers use no-till or conservation tillage on two-thirds of their crop acres.” The 2012 Census of Agriculture data show the following key trends: Minnesota • Number of farms in Minnesota, at 74,542, fell 8 percent from 2007. This reversed a short term trend where farm numbers increased slightly in 1997, 2002 and 2007. Although the count of farm operations with harvested cropland was relatively unchanged, declines in the count of operations with other types of land and livestock enterprises contributed to the overall decline in farms. A farm is defined as any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the Census year. • Land in farms in Minnesota totaled 26.0 million acres, down 3 percent from 2007. Declines in pasture, other cropland, and wood land acres off-set an increase in cropland har-

vested acres. • Market value of agricultural products sold increased 61 percent over 2007 while total production expenses increased 50 percent. This resulted in an increase of net cash farm income which averaged $94,345 per farm. • Average age of the principal operator in 2012 was 56.6 years, continuing the steady long term increasing trend. • Beginning farmers, those who have operated a farm for less than 10 years, account for 17 percent of all principle operators. • Women are principal operators for 6,370 farms in Minnesota, down from 7,361 in 2007. These operations make up 9 percent of all farms, 4 percent of land in farms and sold 398 million dollars worth of agricultural products in 2012. Iowa • In 2012, the value of agricultural products sold by Iowa farmers totaled $30.8 billion, up nearly 51 percent or $10.4 billion from 2007. Crop sales accounted for $17.4 billion of the total and livestock sales accounted for $13.4 billion, up 68 and 34 percent, respectively, from 2007. • Iowa ranked 2nd nationally for

total value of agricultural products, crop sales and livestock sales in 2012, with Iowa moving up one position from 2007 for each item. • Farmers in Sioux, Lyon, and Kossuth counties had the largest value of sales in 2012, with Kossuth county ranking as the top corn producing county in the U.S. and Sioux county ranking 3rd nationally for the number of hogs and pigs sold. • Farmers spent a total of $23.7 billion on production expenses in 2012, up nearly 54 percent from the $15.4 billion in 2007. • The amount of land operated by Iowa farmers declined by less than 1 percent between 2007 and 2012, from 30.7 million acres. • Farmers harvested crops from 24.5 million acres in 2012 with no-till practices used on 6.95 million acres and conservation tillage practices used on 8.76 million acres. • The average farm size of the 88,637 Iowa farms was 345 acres in 2012.

Seaforth, Minn.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

S

eaforth, Minn., takes claim as “The Smallest Polka Town in the United States.” While no scientific survey has been taken to confirm that honor, neither has anyone come forward to challenge it. With a population of 86, more or less, Seaforth holds an annual Polka Fest in the middle of July that draws a number of polka bands. Duane and Donna Kasten initiated the Polka Fest and still attend. The Kastens met at a polka dance. They moved to Seaforth from the Twin Cities and opened the C4th Bar. They wanted their kids to grow up in a rural area, but they also wanted to encour-

age their interest in music, so they occasionally brought musicians to play at the bar. Then they got the idea that the town needed more activity, so they sent cards to musicians to come and display their talent, with no promise of payment. Thirteen groups took them up on it and came to play under a tent in a gravel area behind the bar. From there, the weekend of polka music grew. The next year they set up two tents on the street and the crowds kept coming. When the Kastens sold the bar six years later, the Seaforth Booster Club took responsibility for the thriving event.

“Originally we had the two tents,” said Marvin and Maureen Bernardi, who have headed up the weekend for many years. “Then the Booster Club built the shelter house.” Available for picnics and gatherings in the summer, the building serves as the dance hall at the Polka Fest. Proceeds from the weekend helped build the shelter house and have gone for other community improvements, too. This community fundraiser has contributed to a playground, the ball field, and a fire hall addition. The Polka Fest has expanded to include softball, horseshoe, and bean bag tournaments, an evening Polka

Mass, a catered chicken supper, and even a couple of country-rock bands for the non-polka crowd. But the polka is still the foundation of the celebration. It was a radio station in New Ulm, Minn., on which the Polka Fest advertised that labeled Seaforth “The Smallest Polka Town in the United States.” This German settlement intends to keep living up to the label. And the Kastens have returned for it every year. “We’re pleased the Polka Fest has continued, and with all the work the Bernardis put in,” Kastens said. Seaforth’s Polka Fest has been celebrated for over 40 years. It is the third Friday and Saturday in July. ❖
