Northey comments on Iowa crops, weather report Much of the crop remains in good to excellent condition even as some of the damage from the extremely wet weather and strong storms earlier in the growing season was becoming even more apparent. Bill Northey ties for the week include herbicide application, replanting drowned out crops and cutting hay. Topsoil moisture levels rated 0 percent very short, 2 percent short, 73 percent adequate and 25 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture levels rated 0 percent very short, 6 percent short, 77 percent adequate and 17 percent surplus. Central Iowa was the wettest, with well over one-third of the topsoil in surplus condition. Twenty-six percent of the corn acreage was silking, 25 percentage points ahead of last year and 1 per-

centage point ahead of the five-year average. Seventy-six percent of the corn crop was reported in good to excellent condition, unchanged from the previous week. Forty-five percent of the soybean acreage was blooming, 11 days ahead of the previous year and slightly ahead of normal. Six percent of the soybean crop was setting pods, 11 days ahead of last year and one day ahead of normal. Seventy-three percent of the soybean crop was rated in good to excellent condition, unchanged from last week. Ninety-seven percent of the oat crop has

headed, equal to the previous year but 1 percentage point behind the five-year average. Sixty percent of the oat acreage has turned color, 18 percentage points ahead of the previous year but 10 points behind average. Oat harvest was 8 percent complete 5 percentage points ahead of last year but 11 points behind the normal pace. Seventy-three percent of the oat acreage was reported in good to excellent condition. The first cutting of alfalfa hay was 97 percent complete, three points behind last year and 1 point behind average. The second cutting of alfalfa was 27 percent complete, one day ahead of last year but 11 days behind normal. Sixtyeight percent of all hay was rated in good to excellent condition. Pasture condition rated 75 percent good to excellent. High insect counts caused stress to livestock across the state.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented on the Iowa crop progress and condition report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through October. “The drier weather last week was very welcome as it allowed farmers to start getting back in the fields to get needed work done,” Northey said. “Much of the crop remains in good to excellent condition even as some of the damage from the extremely wet weather and strong storms earlier in the growing season was becoming even more apparent.” Iowa welcomed drier conditions which allowed farmers to get back in the fields during the week ending July 13, according to NASS. Statewide there were 4.2 days suitable for fieldwork, the first time since mid-June that farmers have had over 3.0 days suitable across the whole state. Activi-

All you ever wanted to know about tomatoes, and more Cookbook Corner

By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent An alternative title to “Tomatoes Garlic Basil” by Doug Oster (St. Lynn’s Press) might well have been “Everything You Need to Know About Tomatoes Including Their History, Growing Instructions, and Cooking Techniques.” That’s how complete this “cookbook-gardening guide” is. For those who love their tomatoes — and/or garlic, and/or basil — this book is a gem. Recipes are sprinkled throughout chapters filled with real, honest-to-goodness information on plant varieties, climate considerations, seed selection, growing, compost, pest control, diseases, cooking and preservation techniques. Written by a gardening expert who loves to eat what he grows, this book will inspire readers to incorporate garden produce into everyday eating, which is a very good thing. Although tomatoes are the main focus, other chapters address garlic- and basil-growing as well. ■ The book contains recipes for two different tomato pies: one savory, one sweet. The first pie isn’t a dessert; it’s an entree similar to pizza, quite common in England. It’s necessary to salt and drain the tomatoes first to get rid of excess moisture that would make the pie crust soggy. The two-cheese topping adds a creamy decadence.

The Johnson crew gives four out of four ‘yums’ to Garlic Elixir Old-Fashioned Tomato Pie 4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced 1 cup chopped basil leaves 1 cup chopped green onions 1 pre-made pie shell, or make one from scratch 1 cup fresh, grated mozzarella cheese 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 cup mayonnaise Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste Preheat oven to 350 F. Place the tomatoes in a colander in the sink in one layer. Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10-15 minutes. Layer the tomato slices, basil and onion in the pie shell. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the cheeses with the mayonnaise. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes

and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Serves 4-6, but I’d bet on 4. ■ Garlic Elixir is an all-purpose garlicky condiment that’s awesome on everything from bread, bruschetta, salad dressing, soups, vegetables, meats, rice, pasta and so much more. Think of it as garlic heaven in a jar, ready whenever you need it to add instant pizzazz to whatever you’re cooking. I mashed up a batch of this a few weeks ago and have been using it ever since on practically everything, it’s that addicting (and easy to use). Just a little goes a long way. Four out of four “yums” from the Johnson crew! Garlic Elixir 1 cup garlic cloves, peeled 1/4 cup fresh parsley 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon lemon juice Olive oil (1/2 to 1 cup) Optional: chopped black olives, red pepper flakes, anchovies or capers, to taste Process garlic and parsley in a blender until chopped fine, or to your liking. (If you want to add any of the optional ingredients, place them into the blender before you begin blending the garlic and parsley.) Place in a mixing bowl. Add salt, vinegar, pepper and lemon juice to the bowl, then stir in olive oil until it permeates the mixture, about 1/2 to 1 cup.

COOKBOOK, from pg. 8A Place in a glass jar and cover with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of olive oil to seal. Store in glass jar in refrigerator. Will keep up to a month. ■ The second tomato pie is an unusual — but tasty — old-fashioned dessert, invented to use up green tomatoes at the end of the growing season. Old-school cooks didn’t like to waste anything, and after much trial and effort, a green tomato pie was considered the best method. Nowadays cooks might use green tomatoes up in salsas as well. Green Tomato Pie 1 double pie crust 2 cups chopped green tomatoes 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 teaspoons white vinegar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup chopped raisins 4 tablespoons melted butter 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg Preheat oven to 375 F. Place the chopped green tomatoes in a pot of water, cover, and bring to a boil. Drain, add the other filling ingredients, and mix. Fill the pie crust with the tomato mix. Cover with the pie dough top and make two or three slashes in the middle with a knife. Crimp the edge with your fingers, all the way around. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. ■ Sometimes simplicity is an aim in itself. This sandwich is all about the art of cooking with basic, “rustic” ingredients and simple yet amazing techniques. The key to this dish is quality ingredients: Start with a good tomato, from a local source. The better the bread, the better the sandwich. Simple Perfect Tomato Sandwich 2 pieces white bread or good Italian bread 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 stalk of basil Sea salt to taste Fresh ground pepper to taste 1 ounce buffalo mozzarella cheese 1 good, tasty, large tomato Toast the bread. If it’s white bread, use a toaster; if it’s Italian bread, put it under the broiler until golden brown. On a cutting board, combine the minced garlic and the olive oil. Add the basil and a pinch or two of sea salt and some pepper. Chop and blend with a sharp knife. Make a paste out of the ingredients and spread it on the bread. Slice the cheese and lay that over the paste, then top it off with slice tomato. Serves 1.

Hollyhocks — A plant that invokes memories of days gone by Indian Spring is an old fashioned variety of Alcea rosea, a tall biennial member of the mallow family Malvaceae commonly known as a hollyhock. Years ago they were sometimes called “Outhouse Hollyhocks” because they were tall enough to screen those small buildings and refined IN THE GARDEN ladies didn’t ask where the By Sharon Quale outhouse was, they just looked for the hollyhocks. The tall stately beauties are fondly remembered by many folks as being mainstays in their grandmother’s garden. When viewed at eye level one can enjoy the lovely green star shape that graces the center of the blossom. Hollyhocks are mostly biennial but we have had one plant that has thrived for five years in the same garden spot.

Yard and garden: Battling common summer problems Powdery mildew is most commonly found on plants growing in shady areas and in crowded plantings with poor air circulation. Optimal conditions for powdery mildew are cool nights followed by warm days. Cultural practices can reduce the severity of powdery mildew on garden phlox. The amount of disease inoculum can be reduced by cutting off and removing diseased plant debris in fall. Plants growing in shady locations should be moved to a sunny site. In overcrowded plantings, improve air circulation by digging and dividing perennials. While cultural practices are helpful, fungicides may be necessary to control powdery mildew on garden phlox. To be effective, fungicides should be applied at the first sign of the disease and repeated on a regular basis.

GARDEN, from pg. 10A use the plant as a food source. Insecticidal soap sprayed directly on these insect pests is a method of control. Clipping and cleaning the beds in the falls helps to prevent pests from wintering over.

Remove the plant debris from the area and destroy it. Proper spacing and watering can help to minimize the severity of the disease. Space peonies three to four feet apart.

How do I control peony leaf blotch? Peony leaf blotch is caused by the fungus Cladosporium paeoniae. The disease is also known as red spot or measles. Typical symptoms include glossy purple to brown spots or blotches on the upper surfaces of the leaves. The disease may cause slight distortion of the leaves as they continue growth. Leaf symptoms are sometimes most apparent on the edges of older leaves. On stems, symptoms appear as long, reddish brown streaks. Peony leaf blotch is best managed through sanitation.

Yet stuff is not the end all of contentment. Just ask a farmer when it rains. How often has it been too much, too little, too late? You can have good yields and low prices, good prices and low yields, then on the outstanding years when it lines up to the best of the best, we wish we had more for market. Then there is the contentment/discontentment with the political environment, school systems, gas prices, waistlines and bottom lines. The struggle for contentment is titanic and real. In fact, it’s impossible outside of a relationship with Jesus. A popular and often quoted Bible verse that inspires, motivates and is frequently used out of context is Philippians 4:13. It reads, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” The “everything” Scripture refers to is contentment! Expanding on this verse, Michael Kelly writes, “Evidently, contentment is so difficult a characteristic to develop and maintain that it can only be exercised in and through the strength of Christ.” This is the good word to speak to my own soul, and one I’ll share with Jackson if/when he transitions from squealing to sulking over his parade candy intake.

The Wiltses ❖ Herman, Minn ❖ Stevens County corn, soybeans, wheat and sugar beets

The Hoffmans ❖ New Ulm, Minn ❖ Brown County dairy cattle, corn, soybeans and alfalfa

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

“We have some corn that looks good, and some that looks not so good,” Wilts said. With fields drying out, the corn is “starting to green up again,” and it was ranging from “chest Dennis Wilts high to knee high.” He’d like to see temperatures rise to get some heat on the crop. Similarly, Wilts said the beans had “stood still for a while due to the wet weather,” but are now starting to grow. As for the sugar beets, the “first couple of fields are looking really good,” he said. Wilts cultivated the beet fields a few days prior to help get them going. He plans to be spraying beets in another week to 10 days. He has been keeping busy hauling grain into town, mowing the road ditches and around the fields, helping his son with an addition, as a well as finally “getting caught up on yard work.” All that busy-ness still allows Wilts time to reflect on the crops so far this summer. “They’re a little behind because we got planting late and all the wet weather,” he said. “At best we’re looking at an average crop.” Average is not great but it definitely could be much, much worse.

The Hoffmans New Ulm, Minn.

Don Hoffman is back from his vacation to Indianapolis and he’s happy to report that “it was a great time; no problems (at home) at all.” Don Hoffman The Land caught up with him July 9 as he was getting back into the swing of things on the farm. The baling of the second hay crop is complete, and it appeared that the quality was quite good. Quantity was good, too — he has “600 marshmallow hills already.” With the hay crop it’s “so far, so good.” The color of the corn plants are coming back, but there’s “unevenness in the crop.” Hoffman is concerned that the short plants may not make it. The beans are “pretty good,” although they’re still “a good week behind normal.” All of the rain set the crops back, but with “virtually no rain at the farm” the previous two weeks, Hoffman said he “would actually like to see an inch of rain again.” Meanwhile, Hoffman is working on “building an apartment for bad weather days” at the barn. Milking goes on at the farm 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so he wanted a place for employees to stay in case of emergencies. He knows that hitting “a

“Nothing’s under water.” The same thing couldn’t be said for many fields not far from Jim Hagen’s Jim Hagen farm, when The Land caught up with him on July 8. He knows that he’s fortunate to have his crops be in the shape that they are in. “It’s all coming along pretty good.” He did have to replant a few acres of soybeans, but already “they’re all up.” He’s also still spraying soybeans; he believes aphids will likely be here at the end of the month. Hagen said he planned on “cultivating soybeans today,” and was happy to report that they looked good. Hagen said that “perfect” weather in the mid-90s would provide some needed heat to get crop going; “It will be tasseling in a few days.” When not out in the field Hagen has been busy painting the vintage 1950s hog house in preparation for his wedding reception in early August. Planning the reception is “stressing me out,” he said, noting the incredible amount of planning and preparing required for the wonderful occasion. From wedding reception preparation to spraying beans, Hagen has been busy this summer, but crop conditions are making him take pause. “It’s good to excellent crops,” he said. There’s a lot to celebrate at the Hagen farm. ❖

With all the rain that has fallen this summer on Dennis Wilts’ fields, he was happy to report that they’re “drying out pretty good.” The Land spoke with Wilts on July 10 as things were finally starting to get growing again after the June’s deluge of rain. The forecast called for a chance of rain over the following two days. “We don’t need any big rains,” he said, an opinion with which producers around his area would likely agree.

Winter wheat harvest is just three or four weeks away for Jared Thronson. When The Land spoke to him on July 10 he was pleased Jared Thronson with his first-ever winter wheat crop — “it looks really good.” Thronson’s combine is in his shop; he’s having a John Deere mechanic come out to look over the machine and let him know what things need to be fixed in order to have a smooth harvest. While the winter wheat looks good one of his soybean fields near Bejou, Minn., received some hail damage on July 7. “There were lots of stalks broken off,” he said. “(Beans) will lose some yield potential, I’m sure. ... I do have hail insurance so that’s a good thing.” The bean field Thronson seeded last looks the best, which he attributes to the fact that those beans were planted on sandy ground. “The bins are empty,” Thronson said, following a busy stretch of hauling grain. Cooler weather was forecasted through next week — “not great for growing crops” — and some rain was in the forecast, but “the last couple of days have been nice.” Overall Thronson believes that the crops look pretty good, and for that he’s thankful — “not too much stuff to complain about.”

bad weather stretch” is only a matter of time. When that bad weather does happen he wants his employees to be housed at the farm, and not attempting to drive in unforgiving conditions. Calving is in full swing at the dairy, with “20 to 25 calves born in the last couple weeks,” Hoffman said. He’s “looking forward to some more milk in the bulk tank.” Even though the rain in June seemed to be unrelenting, Hoffman said he believes that “in the end will be a good thing.” Now if just a little more would fall, he said, that would be an even better thing.

Pheasants Forever to educate about pollinators Minnesota’s Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund recently awarded Pheasants Forever with a $100,000 grant for the creation of the Minnesota Pollinator Partnership. Through this new initiative, Pheasants Forever will host 40 community events throughout the state to educate youth and their families about the value of pollinators to humans and pheasants through interactive habitat projects. Approximately one-third of all food consumed by humans is delivered by pollinators; including fruits, vegetables, nuts and coffee. Habitat necessary for rapidly declining populations of honey bees and monarch butterflies is also the very same diverse grassland and prairie flower habitat necessary for pheasants. Likewise, the insects produced in this habitat are the primary food source for pheasant

chicks during their first months of life. “Habitat is the nexus between birds and bees,” said Drew Larsen, Pheasants Forever’s national habitat education specialist and the grant writer. “The massive decline in honey bee populations and monarch butterflies have the same root cause as our tumble in pheasant numbers; a loss of quality habitat featuring a diverse mix of flowering plants and grasses.” Through Pheasants Forever’s Minnesota Pollinator Partnership, the group plans to work on 40 community projects throughout the state. In order to accomplish these objectives, grants up to $2,500 per project will be made available to local Pheasants Forever chapters and/or partners who meet the following criteria. • Chapters/partners must engage a youth and/or community group in the

establishment, maintenance, and monitoring of a pollinator habitat project (i.e. classrooms, 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, FFA, etc.). • Pollinator projects must meet minimum pollinator habitat specifications set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. • Pollinator projects must be a minimum of 1/2 acre in size: • If planted in a strip, strip must be a minimum of 20 ft. wide • Pollinator seed mix must include a minimum of nine native wildflower species (we expect to greatly exceed the minimum) • At least three species shall have their primary onset of blooming during each period of April-June 15, June 15July and August-October • Chapters/partners must provide a dollar-to-dollar match in order to receive grant funding for their projects. Match would include cash match from chapters and partners as well as

in-kind match from donations and volunteer time spent establishing, maintaining and monitoring projects. Chapters or partners interested in learning more about participating in Pheasants Forever’s new Minnesota Pollinator Partnership should contact Drew Larsen at (308) 293-1194 or via e-mail. Pheasants Forever, including its quail conservation division, Quail Forever, is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to upland habitat conservation. Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have more than 140,000 members and 745 local chapters across the United States and Canada. Chapters are empowered to determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds are spent, the only national conservation organization that operates through this truly grassroots structure. Since its creation in 1982, Pheasants Forever has spent $508 million on 475,000 habitat projects benefiting 10 million acres nationwide. ❖

Grain Outlook Livestock Angles Key to corn Livestock markets always weather remain erratic

Grain Angles Get back to the basics No one has to tell you that the markets have been bearish, and hopefully you have made some sales before the downward trend. If you haven’t made any sales, what can you do about it? It’s time to get back to the basics of marketing your crop. There are many tools out there to utilize and you just need to determine which tool you feel most comfortable with and from there, formulate a plan. There are many people who can help you in your marketing efforts. Usually the place you have been selling your crop can assist you, but you also have the option of working with an independent broker. ANDY HUNEKE The most basic form of a sale is AgStar Director Agbiz & the cash sale. As you look at the Trade Credit/Leasing Northfield, Minn. cash sale, don’t be afraid to look out into the future. If you have storage, you can look at doing a cash sale in the spring that will probably offer a better basis than the basis at harvest. Also, in a more typical market, there should be a 25- to 35-cent advantage on the Chicago Board of Trade. You don’t have to wait until next spring when you want to deliver to determine the price. Just looking at this option may offer you a 25- to 50-cent gain compared to the fall price. If we get the anticipated large crop, this should hold true. A marketing strategy that I have used for many years and has worked well is utilizing a hedge-toarrive contract. When you use this tool, you are locking in the CBOT price and leaving the basis open. This gives you the flexibility to lock in the basis

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

The livestock markets have not yet quieted down, and remain as erratic and rapid-changing as they have all spring. It does not appear that the next several weeks will offer anything to distract from this pattern. The cattle market has seen a number of bumps in the climb to all-time high prices. These bumps usually have lasted only a week or two before the market advanced again to new highs. For the first time in years the futures market posted a weekly reversal which brought about considerable speculative liquidation. This, in turn, saw the cash trade follow with $2.00 to $3.00 weaker cash trade that week. JOE TEALE Broker Because this has been a rally due the supply shortage of cattle, that Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. problem has not changed. Has the demand finally taken some command of the cattle market? If it has then look for further correction to take place. If the major concern of the market continues to be the supply, then the catalyst of the market will remain the same and prices will likely rebound. The cattle market has reached another crossroads, so one would anticipate that the volatility in the marketplace will remain fairly high. Producers should be aware of the potential changes in the marketplace and be willing to protect their inventories as needed. The hog market has once again turned the corner and cash and futures prices are in the midst of a rally. The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus appears to be one of the major factors for the draw down on the current number of marketable hogs. This combined

Editor’s note: Tim Emslie, CHS Hedging market analyst, is sitting in this week for Phyllis Nystrom, the regular “Grain Outlook” columnist. ❖ The following market analysis is for the week ending July 11. CORN — The September corn contract finished the week on a nine-session losing streak, swamped by forecasts for cool weather through pollination. The week began with the condition ratings from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that showed steady conditions nationally. TIM EMSLIE Regionally, Minnesota, Iowa and CHS Hedging Inc. Wisconsin all declined, but ratings St. Paul in more southern and western states such as Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri improved. The key to the corn market in July is always weather. This year, an abundance of June rainfall set the crop up with sufficient moisture for the critical pollination period, leaving temperatures the main question. National weather forecasts went a long way towards answering that question this week when they consistently showed below-normal temperatures for the Corn Belt through a good portion of July. Historically, record yields are made in years with below-normal temperatures in July and August. While that may not be the ideal situation for northern grown corn, the lack of heat through the central and southern belt has typically more than made up for any losses nationally. The most recent example of this kind of situation was the last time a record yield

Cool temps preserve soil moisture for pod-filling EMSLIE, from pg. 15A was established in 2009. On the demand side, the weekly ethanol production rate dropped 26,000 barrels per day to 927,000. That rate remains strong enough to meet the USDA’s updated corn use for ethanol projection. Weekly export sales were edged higher to a four-week high of 363,000 metric tons for old-crop. The end of the week saw the July balance sheet update from the USDA. The USDA made demand adjustments mostly in-line with expectations on the corn and soybean balance sheets, and dropped wheat demand a little more than expected. Ending stocks rose across the board, generating a bearish reaction from the markets. On the corn balance sheet, the oldcrop feed number was lowered by 125 million bushels, and use for ethanol was raised by 25 million bushels. The cut to feed usage was generally expected due to the June 30 stocks number that revealed feed usage was on a slower pace than implied by the USDA’s full year projection. No change was made to the export number. On the 2014-15 balance sheet, the production number was adjusted for the acreage numbers reported on the June 30 report including the decline in harvested acreage, and the resulting lower

production led to a lower feed use number on the idea that usage drops with lower production. No increase was made in the export or use for ethanol categories, but feed usage was lowered on the idea that lower production results in less feed/residual use. World stocks increased by 5.4 mmt, led by a production increase in China and the higher stocks total in the United States. OUTLOOK: For the week, the September contract was down 31.25 cents, and the December contract lost 30.5 cents. As mentioned above, supply is the focus of the corn market in July, and price rallies will be short-lived through the growing season without any threatening temperatures. That’s doesn’t mean that this crop is in the bin yet. The most recent example of a late season weather surprise was in 2010 when the crop was ahead of schedule and got through pollination in good shape, but got rushed through the grain-filling period by warm temperatures. Funds were somewhat surprisingly net buyers during the most recent week as reported by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The CFTC reports positions as of each Tuesday, so we have data through trade on July 8. As of that date, non-commercial funds still had a small net long position of about 10,000 contracts.

Know your marketing tools HUNEKE, from pg. 15A when it’s at a favorable level. When looking at my marketing plan, I usually sell into the December contract for corn and monitor the spread between December and the following July. This usually gives you an opportunity to “roll” the December contract to July and pick up an additional spread of 25 to 35 cents. If the spread is under 25 cents, then you need to determine if the December contract is worth rolling as the interest and storage cost may not offset the additional time. You may still pick up a more favorable basis by rolling, so it may still make sense to roll the contract. However sometimes, it doesn’t make sense. In a recent crop year, the spread was under 20 cents. I waited and followed the basis at several corn buyers. Moving into late November, one of the processors narrowed their basis to 15 cents under. The market was telling me not to hold onto the corn so I locked the basis and delivered the crop. I had my bins empty by

Since corn declined throughout the period when the funds were net buyers, the presumption is that they were buying corn as one leg of a long corn, short soybean spread. Nearby corn dropped below $4 for the first time since August 2010. Realistically, support will be hard to identify until the charts start to make some kind of bottoming formation or show signs of seller exhaustion. SOYBEANS — The soybean market fell hard this week as well ahead of the big production increase that was known to be coming on the Friday’s USDA report. Soybean conditions were steady for a third week at a very strong 72 percent good/excellent. Weekly export sales were solid at 56,000 metric tons for old-crop and 526 for new-crop. The soybean residual was plugged in at minus 69 million bushels to account for the apparent additional supply revealed by the June 30 stocks report. That is pretty close the roughly minus 60 million bushels expected. (The negative residual implies the 2013 production was understated, but we won’t get final confirmation until the final stocks report on Sept. 30.) Usage increases in the crush and export categories didn’t offset all of the additional supply available, rising to 140 million bushels. For 2014-15, the new acreage numbers led to a 165-millionbushel increase in production, about half of which was offset by increased usage. World stocks increased by 2.4 million metric tons, primarily based on the higher U.S. production increase. OUTLOOK: July temperatures are less of an issue for soybean production than they are for corn production, but the current cool temperatures certainly preserve soil moisture for the important pod-filling time. For the week, the August bean contract was down $1.04, and the November contract was down 58.5 cents. Support level in November is the weekly low of $10.65. With a

The hedge-to-arrive contract is only one marketing tool. As I said, there are other tools that you can use, such as options (puts and calls), basis fixed contracts and other hybrid products. The key is you must understand the tools and the risk and cost associated with each. So it’s time to get back into the marketing strategy thought process and figure out what tools you want to utilize. Writing down your plan and sharing it with others will help with the plan’s execution. Don’t be afraid to seek out others to help you, but ultimately it’s your decision. Make it happen.

weather issue, look for the gap left this week near $11.30 to be a target. Emslie’s Extras: It was a fairly light week for U.S. economic data following the long Independence Day weekend. The most noted report of the week in the U.S. was the release of the minutes from the June Federal Open Market Committee meeting. The Fed expects to end its quantitative easing program at the October meeting with a final $15 billion reduction. The discussion revealed that the Fed plans to continue reinvest the proceeds of its maturing bonds until at least after the first rate hike. That first rate hike is expected by the Fed sometime around the middle of next year. China reported a June trade balance of $31.6 billion with exports up 7.2 percent year-to-year and imports up 5.5 percent year-to-year. While the June year-to-year rates were improved from May, the level of both imports and exports fell from last month, making for a bit of a soft takeaway from the report. Consumer prices in China were up 2.3 percent year-to-year during June, a little softer than the 2.5 percent rate seen in May. The weakness was attributable to a fall in food inflation, which may prove to be short-lived as pork prices increase over the next few months. On the other hand, core inflation is not picking up following the targeted stimulus programs policy makers have put in place so far in 2014, leaving them room to act should growth fall. The wheat balance sheet gave us the main surprises relative to expectations, with higher world production translating to lower U.S. exports and a higher carryout. The EU led the way with 1.6 mmt of the 3.6 mmt increase in world production. World stocks were up 0.9 mmt. For the week, the September contracts were down 44.5 cents in Minneapolis, 51 cents in Kansas City, and 53.5 cents in Chicago. This material has been prepared by a sales or trading employee or agent of CHS Hedging Inc. and should be considered a solicitation. ❖

Some consumer resistance TEALE, from pg. 15A with the fact that from a competitive meat price, pork is a much better value to the consumer than the rest of the meats. From seasonal standpoint, at this time of year the summer top in the market usually occurs. This could be delayed because of the decline in numbers, but it is certainly a factor that should not be ignored in the long run. Comparing the futures contracts, there is quite the drop from the expir-

ing July contract to the August contract which could be the anticipation of the seasonal drop. The pork cutout has been fairly stable which suggests that there may be some consumer resistance because of price. It would appear that the next few weeks could set the tone and direction of the hog market into the fall months. Therefore, producers are urged to keep attuned to market conditions and protect inventories as warranted. ❖

Cheese still strong but below $2, butter slips

MARKETING

cheese manufacturers seeking extra milk but they were unsuccessful in finding it. Both manufacturers who have not been buying surplus milk in recent weeks but are now seeking a bit more milk to compensate for milk production declines, as well as manufacturers who have regularly been buying surplus milk in recent weeks, are not finding surplus milk. This tighter milk supply situation has kept cheese production at less than desired levels. Condensed skim is being used in some cheese plants to extend vat yields. Nevertheless, some distressed milk found its way to other cheese manufactures. Location seemed to matter more as to surplus milk availability.

Sales of cheese overall are strong, with some manufacturers struggling to fill contracted orders. Barrels were being purchased in Wisconsin this week at a premium to Chicago Mercantile Exchange prices due to some supply tightness. Cheese prices are mostly lower, following declines in CME prices. Cheese producers report domestic buyers are taking contract loads but they are watching prices and limiting buying agreements to nearby timeframes. The Foreign Ag Service reports quota imports of cheese for January-May 2014 totaled 60.5 million pounds, 1

Cash butter closed lower on the week at $2.3725 per pound, down 1.75 cents but still a whopping 91.25 cents above a year ago. Twenty cars were sold on the week. NDPSR butter averaged $2.2823 per pound, up 7.4 cents. Some Midwest butter churn operators were able to secure additional cream over the holiday weekend, according to Dairy Market News but, many noted tighter cream supplies as the week progressed. The market tone remains firm due to constricted bulk butter and cream supplies hindering the rebuilding of stocks. Production rates are steady to

slightly higher, compared to a week ago. Export activity has stalled recently, however U.S. butter prices and various global markets have been converging. Domestic sales are very good for food service, retail, and industrial use. Contacts noted the higher butter price generally hasn't affected retail demand. Industrial buyers and resellers are valuing fresh over frozen product at a greater precedence. Manufacturer supplies are steady to declining in some instances, says DMN.

powder averaged $1.8585, down 2.1 cents, and dry whey averaged 69.42 cents per pound, up 1.1 cent. ■ Cheese prices falling below $2 per pound and butter slipping is “the market trying to figure out what it wants to do,” according to Jerry Dryer, editor of the Dairy and Food Market Analyst. Speaking in the July 4 DairyLine, Dryer reported that there was “a wall of milk in June and through the Memorial Day holiday weekend and a lot of milk got sold to cheese makers at distressed prices, $3, $4 and $5 below Class, so obviously you can make less expensive cheese out of that and some of that cheese is being shopped around and there’s a little bubble of cheese working its way through the system.” Commercial sales and exports, based on May data, remain very strong, he said, and “The market will work through this and digest this product.”

People are telling him that by the time the cheese price gets to $1.90 per pound, “buyers will more than likely be climbing all over the top of one another to get some cheese because inventories remain low and demand remains strong.” I asked about reports that butter is still being exported from the United States but the high U.S. price is attracting butter imports, “two-shipsmeeting-in-the-night sorta speak.” He replied, “There is no butter to come in right now,” and referenced a spike in the Global Dairy Trade butter price from Dairy America. But, he warned that the rubber will meet the road in a couple of months on butter as imports will” crunch the butter price.” When asked about the crash in GDT butter, Dryer said that some did fall but cautioned to not look at the index GDT publishes but at “the real live prices.” “Dairy America butter, for delivery in See MIELKE, pg. 23A

More butter coming; not impacting market yet Butter disappearance was up almost 8 percent, although a lot of that was driven by exports, which have softened due the high prices. The other side of that, according to Dryer, is that butter stocks are very low, due to that strong demand. “Typically at the end of May, we have 51 days worth of butter in the cooler, getting ready for the holiday season,” Dryer warned. “This year we have 35 and a half days worth in the cooler so it’s bullish on the butter side of the business.” The milk powder business, which includes milk protein concentrate, skim milk powder and nonfat dry milk, has slowed down and is below a year ago, he said, by about 0.3 percent for that three month period, but that’s actually a recovery from early in the year. The whey business “stays in the dumper,” according to Dryer, down 10 percent in that three month period. “The key products driving milk prices, cheese and butter have good sales, good disappearance through the end of May,” he concluded, but “they’re slowing some now as the import orders back off a little bit

because of prices and retail sales back off because of higher prices.” ■ Cooperatives Working Together accepted 21 requests for export assistance this week to sell 15.62 million pounds of cheese, 1.25 million pounds of butter (82 percent butterfat) and 837,757 pounds of whole milk powder to customers in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, South America and Oceania. The product will be delivered through January 2015. Year-to-date, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in selling 74.33 million pounds of cheese, 48.77 million pounds of butter and 15.41 million pounds of whole milk powder to 41 countries on six continents. These sales are the equivalent of 1.926 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis. Lee Mielke is a syndicated columnist who resides in Everson, Wash.

MIELKE, from pg. 22A August, was higher than the previous trading session, two weeks ago,” he said, “When they were selling butter for delivery in July. The prices for September, October and product coming out of New Zealand, those prices were sharply lower.” “There’s going to be more butter later on,” he concluded, “but it’s not around yet, it’s not impacting the market yet.” Dryer was back the following week to report his commercial disappearance data after factoring in last Friday’s Dairy Products report. Dryer prefers to examine the data in three month averages rather than monthly. He reported that demand was still pretty good through May, adding the caveat that it may have since hit the wall in some respects or at least slowed down. March, April, May American cheese sales were up about 2 percent, he said, other cheese was up almost 3 percent so the cheese category was holding despite the higher prices at retail.

Experts debate value of wetland mitigation By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Wetland mitigation is a process that ensures no-net loss of wetlands. The process allows for development in areas where wetland impacts cannot be avoided, provided that new wetlands are created or restored elsewhere. “Wetland mitigation became an issue in recent years because the program was effectively not made available for agricultural drainage projects,” according to Warren Formo, Minnesota Agricultural Water Resources Center executive director. “Wetland mitigation had been used to offset wetland losses from road construction projects and urban expansion since the early 1990s, with most of the newly created wetlands on agricultural lands.” Is wetland mitigation a key strategy in the ongoing efforts to clean up the Minnesota River and its many tributaries? “Wetlands serve a vital function,” said Don Baloun, Minnesota state conservationist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, “in trapping sediment and nutrients that leave the landscape for many reasons. They’re Mother Nature’s kidney. Loss of wetlands in watersheds and tributaries removes this opportunity.” Formo agrees, but with caution. “Wetland mitigation can be helpful,” he said, “but recognize that it will not work everywhere. For example, let’s consider nitrogen losses. Within a

Wetland mitigation can be helpful, but recognize that it will not work everywhere. ... If inadequate drainage is limiting yield, improved drainage can actually reduce nitrogen losses by improving yield which then also impoves nitrogen uptake.

— Warren Formo

Wetlands serve a vital function in trapping sediment and nutrients that leave the landscape for many reasons. They’re Mother Nature’s kidney. Loss of wetlands in watersheds and tributaries removes this opportunity.

— Don Baloun field, nitrogen losses are not the same on every acre and to a large extent are the reverse of crop yields. Bigger yields; less nitrogen losses. If inadequate drainage is limiting yield, improved drainage can actually reduce nitrogen losses by improving yield which then also improves nitrogen uptake.” Formo suggests the flood-water area in a crop field is likely providing minimal benefit in terms of habitat and water retention. But if that floodwaters area were drained, a new wetland could be created somewhere else in the watershed that could provide better water quality and habitat benefits. The participants pay the costs of wetland mitigation. The buyer of the credits works with the seller — owner of the mitigation bank — to negotiate a price. It’s a private transaction. However the developer of the new wetland pays all costs associated with the project in order to be eligible for credits. Formo noted that the developer then recovers these costs by selling credits to those who want to do a drainage project; and they don’t need to be adjoining properties. Water keeps making news “Abundant spring rains have somewhat eased the concerns about irrigation and growing water shortages across certain areas of Minnesota,” said Baloun. “But the expanding number of permits for agricultural irrigation is pressuring the Department of Natural See MITIGATION, pg. 25A

You go through — Tom Kalahar a long process to get to the mitigation stage. Most times the wetland impact is avoided before mitigation is considered. Q: What is a wetland bank? Kalahar: Wetland banks are an identification system for the Board of Water and Soil Resources. It’s BWSR’s way of tracking wetlands. People go to BWSR with their checkbooks and buy credits if they cannot avoid draining a wetland. Q: Your personal take on wetland mitigation? Kalahar: Wetland mitigation is mostly politics and should be used only as a last resort. If not used properly, the system would only allow those with the fattest checkbooks to continue to drain wetlands. Seldom are new wetlands comparable in value to the lost ones. ❖

MITIGATION, from pg. 24A Resources to monitor the number of permits being issued … and the impacts on groundwater aquifers. The contribution of nitrogen to surface and groundwater as a result of agriculture is not going away.” “It is unfortunate,” Formo said, “that a few legislative leaders and DNR officials have become so caught up in the White Bear Lake situation and related ‘sky is falling’ fears. Certainly long-term sustainability of water supplies is of concern to irrigators, but wise use is not the same as no use. “We encourage all irrigators to talk to their local DNR office about permitting, recognizing that for some producers this is news as they may been irrigating for several decades prior to the requirement for permits and may believe they are grandfathered in and not subject to a permit. “There are also situations where land has been sold or rented and permits were not transferred or maintained. It is good and appropriate for DNR to publicize the need for permits and invite farmers to talk to them about permits, but less helpful to go about it as they have by creating fear in the media and at the legislature.” Meanwhile a recent story in the Des Moines Register stated that as much as $1 billion in potential yield reductions are occurring through rain- and windinduced loss of topsoil in Iowa. Researchers, it read, are working on developing a better way to measure erosion; they believe parts of Iowa could be losing up to 12 times more soil than government reports suggest. “We’re losing soil that’s highest in organic matter, highest in nutrients,” according to Iowa State University professor Rick Cruse, who is leading a team developing new methods to reduce soil loss. “We are losing the cream of the crop.” ❖

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Tom Kalahar has 30-plus years experience as a Soil Conservation Technician in Renville County, Minn. Q: Who does wetland mitigations and why? Kalahar: Mostly the highway department because of its many road projects. Minnesota Department of Transportation has to provide funding for wetland restoration to satisfy their annual road project mitigation obligations. Corporations also mitigate when building shopping malls and wetland impacts cannot be avoided. Some farmers do mitigation however the process is not easy or cheap. Q: Is mitigation essential? Kalahar: Mitigation is a last resort to draining an existing wetland. Most times it is for an unavoidable project such as roads and other public safety reasons. Agricultural mitigation is also a last resort and seldom encouraged by any of the agencies. Q: Is wetland banking a key strategy in cleaning up the Minnesota River? Kalahar: Wetland banking will have very little

Geske: Go GreenStarFarms.org and simply click on “get started.” It’s a simple online evaluation worksheet. Completing the assessment provides a thorough evaluation of your farming practices across crop and livestock production systems. Any questions call me and we’ll get you going.

me. I will set up an appointment with the farmer — maybe an hour or two at the most — to go over your survey and how you evaluated your farm on conservation practices. I’ll have the farmer show me around his farm so I can see firsthand what he is doing. If everything measures up, then I sign off on it. Q: What’s the primary purpose of the program? Geske: Essentially two primary purposes. For the participating farms it’s a self assessment on your own conservation practices and quantifies the good work you may already be doing. But the more important reason is to identify ways in which we can individually on our own farms, or collectively based on knowledge gained, impart strategies for the greater good.

definitely farmer dollars being used for the benefit of farmers. It’s absolutely no cost to participating farmers; even the third-party assessment is free. Q: Any surprises as these surveys get completed? Geske: Perhaps the first surprise is that when farmers sit down and do their own assessment they are always amazed at how “user friendly” this stewardship evaluation is. And invariably as a farmer goes through his own assessment he notes a question or two that makes him think a bit more about something that he was thinking, but hadn’t yet put into practice. From my perspective doing third-party assessments, I would say farmers are harder on themselves than I would be. They tend to score themselves lower

even though they are doing 90-plus percent of the things that enrich conservation of their own soils. Q: Have the unusually heavy rain storms this spring screwed up the stewardship evaluations? Geske: I think we all realize that when you have these six-inch, eight-inch and 10-inch deluges, the best conservation practices can’t control the results. But it does shed the light on simply the fact that we need to look at some things a little differently in view of these higher rainfall patterns that are becoming more common. It’s a matter of determining are there things we can do beyond what we are already doing. Q: Are these heavy storms putting even more pressure on pattern tiling? Geske: Sure, the critics of tiling blame it for a lot of things and they’ve certainly added to their barrages this season. But the stuff we’re seeing on our participating farms is showing a lot of good things from pattern tiling. For example it has almost eliminated the overland runoff of soil, thus keeping our soils, and phosphorous on the fields, where it belongs. What this is doing is finding new and better ways of doing things to protect our total environment and that’s a win/win for everyone.

GREEN STAR, from pg. 26A ers are already doing and not getting credit. We know there’s a tremendous amount of good conservation already in place but are not documented. This gives us a chance to say, “Look, we’ve got all these farms across the state that are scoring very high on protecting water quality and controlling soil erosion.” But we only know that anecdotally. The Green Star Farms Initiative provides a means of gathering that information. Q: Is Green Star unique with Minnesota? Geske: We’re the first to do this as a completely farmer-led initiative. No government involvement is required. It is completely confidential. Wisconsin recently launched a similar program. But we think our Green Star program could be a good plan for others to follow.

MPCA seeks comments on water quality improvement report for Crow Wing River watershed The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is seeking comments on a water quality improvement report and protection plan for the Crow Wing River watershed. The report, known as a Total Maximum Daily Load, focuses on pollution caused by excess nutrients, excess bacteria, and low dissolved oxygen. The public is invited to submit comments through Aug. 12. The Crow Wing River watershed includes all or parts of Becker, Cass, Clearwater, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Morrison, Otter Tail, Todd, and Wadena counties in central Minnesota. This study addresses excess nutrient levels, mainly phosphorus, in seven lakes, excess bacteria levels, mainly E. coli, in 10 streams, and low dissolved oxygen levels in three streams throughout the watershed. Findings from this study will help water resources managers identify of the most effective methods for restoring and improving water quality within the watershed. The TMDL report is part of a nationwide effort under the federal Clean Water Act to identify and clean up pollution in streams, rivers and lakes. Every two years, states are required to submit a list of impaired waters to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A TMDL report is a scientific study that calculates the maximum amount

of a pollutant a water body can receive (known as the “loading capacity”) without exceeding water quality standards. After receiving public comments, the MPCA will revise the draft Upper Mississippi River Bacteria TMDL Study and Protection Plan and submit it to the EPA for approval. Following EPA approval of the study, an implementation plan will be developed to reduce pollution throughout the watershed. The draft report is available on the MPCA’s TMDL projects web page, or at the St. Paul office, 520 Lafayette Road North. Comments may be submitted to Bonnie Finnerty, MPCA, 7678 College Road, Baxter, MN 56425, or by e-mail to bonnie.finnerty@state.mn.us. For more information, contact Bonnie at (218) 316-3897, or toll-free at (800) 657-3864. Written comments must include a statement of your interest in the draft TMDL report; the action you wish the MPCA to take, including specific references to sections of the draft TMDL that you believe should be changed; and specific reasons supporting your position. More information on the state's impaired waters list and TMDL studies is available at www.pca.state.mn.us/water/tmdl/index .html or toll-free at (800) 657-3864.

First farmer to be certified in water quality program in Elm Creek area

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

ST. PAUL — The Minnesota Department of Agriculture and Rural Advantage certified the first farm family, Darwin and Sandy Roberts, in the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program for the Elm Creek Pilot Area July 17. The Roberts’ have a corn and soybean operation near Granada, Minn. Their operation borders the pilot waterway, Elm Creek, and they have installed a number of conservation practices along the creek, including woodchip bioreactors, treatment wetlands, and cover crops. Darwin serves on the Martin County Soil and Water Conservation District board and partners with the University of Minnesota to do agricultural

conservation research on his operation. MAWQCP is a voluntary program designed to accelerate adoption of onfarm conservation practices that protect Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Producers who implement and maintain approved farm management practices will be certified and in turn assured that their operation meets the state’s water quality goals and standards for a period of ten years. The Elm Creek Pilot Area was selected as one of four pilots throughout the state to test and refine the program. This pilot area includes parts of Faribault, Jackson and Martin counties.

Fisher: Advanced drainage systems don’t retrofit well NITRATES, from pg. 29A don’t bind easily, thus if you have water leaving the field the nitrates are going with it. Water storage — water retention in the soil profile — becomes more important. “There’s some good research on ‘day lighting’ tile lines into wetlands. That gives the nitrogen a chance to ‘process’ by being used up biologically or escaping into the atmosphere. There are practices that can be implemented to reduce this nitrate issue, but I’m not certain that we users of the land are ready for the intensity of implementation that’s going to be needed,” he said. Fisher noted that the trend of corn-on-corn has exacerbated the nitrate issue. Even though mineralization is a continuing biological process in the soils which results in additional nitrogen, he said this natural phenomena isn’t part of the increasing nitrate levels in river waters. “In this natural system there is only enough of this natural nitrate production for historically what the biological community in the soils uptakes naturally,” he said, “so very little nitrate actually leaves that system.” Advanced drainage systems with stop valves to store water in the soil profile as needed are a partial answer to this nitrate issue. Unfortunately they don’t retrofit well into existing systems, said Fisher, especially where pattern tiling is already in place. These advanced systems also have some requirements in terms of field slope, so it’s not a one-size-

ISU ag engineer: ‘Minimal reduction in nitrate movements’ “Much of our monitoring work is on nitrate leaving tile lines being exported to streams,” said Matt Helmers, Iowa State University Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering associate professor and Extension ag engineer. “The more drainage we put in the more short circuiting of natural flow pathways we have. Even if the area wasn’t tiled nitrates would move below the root zone but would likely have a longer travel time to the stream.” Matt Helmers Helmers suggested that even with lower corn prices prompting less continuous corn, there likely would be only minimal reduction in nitrate movements. “In a corn/soybean rotation even from the soybean year we lost nitrates,” he said, “so if land is row cropped we won’t see much reduction in nitrate. However, as margins get tighter we will see more efficient use of N which will reduce the nitrates in drainage water issues.” —Dick Hagen

fits-all solution by any means. Fisher made note of growing efforts to promote the recreational value of the Minnesota River, specifically hiking, biking, horseback riding, canoeing and fishing. Elimination of a minor flood control dam just below Granite Falls has already stimulated an increase in fish populations. “This resulted in a change in hydrology of the river water,” Fisher said. “Does it do much for water quality? Yes and no. You at least are no longer building up sediments behind the dam. But you are also now flowing those sediments downstream. But ecologically the fish of the river are definitely going to benefit.” Ditch redetermination studies have been a major accomplishment of the Minnesota River Board. Fisher said the board would be disbanding as it is currently structured, but that their water quality conservation efforts will logically continue with financial support from the state legislature, Soil and Water Conservation Districts of each county, Watershed Districts, and County Commissioner groups. The Minnesota River Board has collected significant data over the years which will be available to basin legislators, agency leadership such as Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and other major stakeholders including commodity groups and farm organizations such as Minnesota Farm Bureau and Minnesota Farmers Union. Fisher said that phosphorous levels in the Minnesota River Basin have, in fact, ticked downward; total suspended solids values have gone down as well. “But what we aren’t seeing is enough improvement to meet the requirement of the Lake Pepin challenge,” he said. “We are recognizing that with the nitrates we have a real significant problem. And significant problems require significant solutions which we don’t yet have.” ❖

Eliminating antibiotics in the U.S. livestock industry potentially is one of the most significant steps in the U.S. livestock industry and certainly adds to the excitement of American EcoLife. For further information check www.korsun.co.kr or contact Sickels: sales@sibainternational.com. ❖

dietary needs of livestock and human nutrition. Kamrath, a former state senator and retired farmer and livestock producer, is excited about this new product. “It appears EcoLife has the potential to produce healthier animals and poultry because of improved and healthier water,” he said. “Yes, that sounds almost too good to be true. That’s why we’re going to Korea. I’ve got to see more with my own eyes what the product does.” He and Sickels are in the first chapter of exploratory work as to the potential of a product used as a water additive to replaces antibiotics. “Obviously if this is what happens and it is costeffective, it could catch on fast,” Kamrath said. They don’t yet have data for projecting costs in the U.S. market but they realize the expense of EcoLife to U.S. livestock and poultry producers has to be comparable and competitive. The goal for these two businessmen is to set up their own U.S. manufacturing facility for production of EcoLife. That would involve FDA inspections and the assorted rules and regulations that are part of introducing new health products into the U.S. market. “We hope to build enough demand so that within one year we can build our own manufacturing facility in America.

In the meantime, we will start out with the imported product directly from Korea,” Sickels said. Healthier livestock is their goal; healthier manure, meaning no antibiotic residue, would be a valuable byproduct. That would enhance the nutrient value of the manure making it more important in growing even healthier crops.

THE LAND, JULY 18, 2014

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Often new products sound too good to be true. EcoLife might be a classic example. What is EcoLife? Now blessed with Food and Drug Administration clearance, EcoLife is described as a dietary product made from fermented green tea leaves by extracting 14 different kinds of lactic acid bacteria, actinomycete and enzymes. Sounds a bit simplistic but this new product is nothing more than something you add to water. Robert Sickels of Maynard, Minn., thinks EcoLife will be a perfect tonic for cattle, hogs and poultry. His company, SiBa International Corp, is the exclusive distributor for Korsun International, a South Korean firm that holds a world-wide patent for this new product. Sickels described EcoLife this way: A patented, proprietary additive to water provided to animals. Dilution rate would be one part EcoLife to 100 parts water. “It’s a probiotic containing these various bacteria that do good things in water, namely getting rid of the bad bacteria in the intestines of animals and birds,” Sickels said. And that means cleaner-smelling water and manure. After a couple weeks of EcoLife in your livestock’s water, disagreeable odors are virtually eliminated, he said. Healthier livestock is the end result, according to Sickels, but also less use of antibiotics because EcoLife in the water acts to build up the immune system in intestines. If it works, this would be a major advancement in livestock production. Sickels and business partner Randy Kamrath have a trip to South Korea planned to get more knowledgeable about the production and culture of EcoLife, which is already being used by both livestock and poultry producers in South Korea, a technology-rich country especially as it relates to

ountry churches throughout Minnesota are often the only remaining institutions that hold rural communities together. Many of them were once part of a community that supported a creamery, a crossroads store, possibly a school and even a post office. These communities were more than the few houses clustered around the church and store. They served small farms for miles around. People might say, for example, “I’m from Belle River” even if the church and creamery of that Douglas County village was six or seven miles a way. Our village of Clotho is like that. We farm on the ground that once included the dance hall and creamery picnic grounds. But the creamery stands empty and decaying, the dance hall is long gone, and the schoolhouse is an attractive well-maintained residence. Across the street from the former schoolhouse is the Clotho United Methodist church. Although I don’t attend Sunday services there I recognize that little building as the cultural and spiritual center of our extended rural community. That is true thanks to a small and dedicated congregation, many of which are my friends. In addition to regular church services, this remarkable group is

Clotho United Methodist Church, Clotho, Minn. responsible for “First Friday of the Month” morning coffee, community game nights during the winter and even a run/walk fundraiser. But like so many country churches their big event is their summer festival. For more than 30 years, on the Saturday before the first Sunday of August, the congregation gets together to make countless gallons of homemade ice cream and to turn the grassy church grounds into a festival grounds covered with tents and a music stage. The next day, after Sunday service, the sound of music drifts from the festival grounds over pastures and fields. As the band warms up, visitors from as

far as the Twin Cities and Fargo come to enjoy the ice cream, pies, hot dogs, sloppy joes and the relaxed companionship of old and new friends. People from Clotho, people who grew up in Clotho, people who have heard about Clotho and people out for a Sunday drive all gather together to enjoy a pleasant summer Sunday afternoon. That’s the way it is at hundreds of rural churches across Minnesota. The success of church festivals in the face of declining rural populations is a testament to the hard work and dedication of parishioners and the desire of ordinary Minnesotans to stay connected to rural communities. ❖

The Leader In Feeders! Famous for minimum feed waste!

‘Big Blue’ is dependable iron on Otter Tail farm By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer “Our ability to accomplish more each working hour keys our decisions when we buy new equipment,” according to Terry Carlson of Carlson Turkey Farms, Parkers Prairie, Minn. Field efficiency is a high priority with this Otter Tail County agricultural enterprise which produces about 60,000 turkeys each year while growing 3,000 acres of irrigated corn and edible beans. Their latest upgrade is the New Holland T9670 Quad Track powerhouse. “With this rig you’re definitely not so tired at the end of the day,” said Lyle Oeltienbruns, Carlson’s brother-in-law and farming partner. “Plus we’ve covered quite a few more acres each day than we used to.” The farm’s first New Holland combine, a TR75, showed up in 1977. “Bought it at a farm auction in North Dakota,” said Carlson. “It was quite a combine; we ran it until it was dead.” The next combine was a TR95; then a TR96 and a pair of TR97s; next step was a 9070 and then the current 9080.

Their first New Holland tractor was purchased in 1995. Their current fleet consists of two 8870s, two 8030’s, a T7270, a TJ530 and now the big dog, that Quad Track T9670. “‘Go big or go home’ is our power philosophy,” Carlson said. As with many farmers, dealer service is at the core of brand loyalty. “These blue machines have been good for us,” he said. “Very trouble-free and quick on adoptions that improve operator comfort. But most important, we’ve got good service.” For Carlson Turkey Farms, home for sales and service is 75 miles away, at Richland Implement in Wahpeton, N.D. Operational duties at the farm get split with Oeltienbruns doing most of the planting and combining; Carlson does field tillage and is business manager of the turkey operation with their sons sharing field and turkey chores as needed. A 16-row header on their New Holland 9080 combine comfortably cleans up 200 acres per day. If need be, 300 acres per day are doable with their See BIG BLUE, pg. 3B

minimum tillage after harvest, then some tillage just ahead of planting.” Turkey production used to be about 180,000 birds per year, but that changed in 2010 when a tornado flattened half of their turkey barns. This was the same tornado that ripped up Wadena, Minn., 26 miles away. “So instead of 30,000 newly hatched chicks every two months, we now start a flock of about 22,000 chicks every four months,” Carlson said. These birds grow amazingly fast. “Only 20 weeks and we’ve got a 44-pound bird that won’t fit in your oven.” Like farm equipment, Carlson has gotten very ‘brand specific’ on his turkey genetics — “You quickly learn what brand works best.” ❖

BIG BLUE, from pg. 2B 16-row White 8516 planter. Doing the numbers, their current machinery fleet includes seven tractors, two grain combines and three edible bean harvesting units, plus an assortment of tillage equipment, rock pickers, grain wagons, and whatever else is needed to meet the seasonal needs of two different crops. Because theirs is a growing operation, Carlson said they seldom trade up. “Frankly the past five years have been good in agriculture so we’ve had the financial ability to upgrade with new and better equipment,” he said. “Putting this new technology to work is one of the treats of farming.” Turkey legacy Growing turkeys is a third-generation legacy for Carlson. His grandfather was in the turkey business in the 1920s. “Grandpa got other growers together up at Pelican Rapids. Soon there was enough production up here so in 1958 they built their own processing plant.” Today turkey barns squatting amongst these irrigated farms are even more common than the dozens of lakes dotting the countryside a few miles north of Parkers Prairie. Tons of turkey litter combined with “water as needed” from their center pivot irrigation systems generates very respectable corn yields of 180-200 bushels per acre. Those corn yields are nourished by 10 to 14 inches of irrigation water. Their kidney beans are routinely in the 2,000-pounds-peracre category, with about seven inches of irrigated water. Corn is planted at 34,000-seeds-per-acre populations, in 30-inch rows. “We try to get the best hybrids in the 92-day to 96-day maturity,” said Oeltienbruns. “Yield punch on these earlier hybrids has really improved in recent years. We chop stalks, do some

Janesville to lose its iconic grain bins

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

June storm blew down bins carrying city’s name By JEAN LUNDQUIST Special to The Free Press The iconic grain bins outside of Janesville, Minn., that carried the town’s name and for years served as hometown, agriculture-themed welcome to visitors were partially destroyed in a mid-June windstorm and won’t likely be resurrected. But townspeople recalled their establishment with nostalgia.As Paula Arndt tells the story, it all started one day in 1988 or 1989, when Janesville State Bank President and fellow Janesville resident Mike Finley counted

Pull Type Road Grader 22’9” long w/tandem axle, 14’ blade w/industrial cutting edge, 9’ wide in the narrow position, many options

the grain bins on the west side of town. There were 10. That’s the same number of letters in the town’s name. Since they were right along the highway leading into town, he thought painting one large letter per bin would be an interesting and unique way to welcome people into town. Dill Elevator owned the bins, and they were in use for grain storage at the time. The Dill folks were in favor of the idea. With a committed group of volunteers, a grant of paint from the Valspar Paint Co., loaned equipment from the City of Janesville and private companies and individuals, the project was ready to fly. Artist Laurie Dimmel, who taught art at the Janesville school, had created not just the outline for the letters, but also the eye-catching sun and rainbow backdrop for the letters. She drew it out on the

bins, and the 20 or so painters arrived. “We finished it the weekend before Hay Daze,” Arndt recalls. Finley says the core crew was made up of bank employees, but the community as a whole came together to support and participate in the project. It took only two days to paint the rainbow flowing across all 10 bins. “They were two long, full days,” Finley recalls. The finished project was stunning. “I’d go to meetings in the Twin Cities, and people would comment on the rainbow bins,” Finley says. “I talked to politicians who right away commented on the bins. It was very well known.” “It was so fitting for a farming community to have this,”Arndt says. “It just said so much about who we are.” No one remembers how much paint it took to paint See BINS, pg. 6B

BINS, from pg. 4B 10 large grain bins in rainbow colors anymore. “Math was definitely involved in the calculations,” Arndt says. Knowing there would need to be touchups, extra paint was figured in, says Finley. “We stored the extra paint in the bank basement for years, so the colors would match.” In the ensuing years, it was discovered that some colors fade faster than others, and touch-ups were needed. The first touch-up was needed in 1994, the second in 1997. When fading colors failed to live up to the vibrancy of the community in 2004, someone suggested painting the bins to match the City’s water tower, which is blue and white. Less upkeep would be needed, and the original volunteer painters, who were by then 25 years older than when the project began, liked the idea. Frank Galler owned the grain bins by then, and for the most part, they sat empty. “Because they were empty is probably why they blew over,” says Finley. In a wind, rain and hail storm in mid-June, three bins bearing the letters “I,” “L,” and “E” were tipped over and destroyed. “Maybe we can get some volunteers and go tip them back up,” Arndt joked. But the insurance company says they are totaled, Finley says, and that means the landowner will be removing them. Since the rainbow bins were first painted, U.S. Highway 14 has been re-routed to the south, so the bins were no longer as important as they once had been in welcoming people to Janesville. Though it was a large project to coordinate, and a labor-intensive project to keep up, Arndt says, “It was worth it. People enjoyed it for many, many years.” The Free Press of Mankato, Minn., is a sister publication to The Land under The Free Press Media. ❖
