Haler crowned 61st Princess Kay of the Milky Way ST. PAUL — Jeni Haler, a 19-year-old college student from Norwood Young America, Minn., representing Carver County, was crowned the 61st Princess Kay of the Milky Way in an evening ceremony at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Aug. 20. Haler will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for more than 3,600 Minnesota dairy farm families. Jeni is the daughter of Rick Haler and Connie Helget Haasken, and attends the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where she double majors in animal science and Spanish/Portuguese studies. Twelve county dairy princesses from throughout Minnesota competed for the Princess Kay of the Milky Way title. Audrey Lane of Prior Lake, representing Scott County, and Sabrina Ley of Belgrade, representing Stearns County, were selected as runners-up. Gabriella Sorg of Hastings, representing Dakota County, was named Miss Congeniality. Scholarships were awarded to Annie Culbertson of Pine Island, representing Olmsted County; Sarah Post of Chandler, representing Murray County; and Lane. Haler’s first official duty as Princess Kay will be to sit in a rotating cooler in the Dairy Building for nearly six hours to have her likeness sculpted in a 90-pound block of butter on the opening day of the Minnesota State Fair. Each finalist will also have her likeness carved in butter during the fair. This year marks butter sculptor Linda Christensen’s

Throughout her year-long reign as Princess Kay of the Milky Way, Haler will make public appearances to help connect consumers to Minnesota’s dairy farm families. She will also promote the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, through which she encourages students to get 60 minutes of exercise each day and eat a healthy diet that includes three servings of dairy. Princess Kay candidates are judged on their general knowledge of the dairy industry, communication skills and enthusiasm for dairy. The Midwest Dairy Association sponsors the Princess Kay program,

which is funded by the dairy checkoff. Midwest Dairy Association is a non-profit organization funded by dairy farmers to build demand for dairy products through integrated marketing, nutrition education and research. Midwest Dairy is funded by checkoff dollars from dairy farmers in a 10-state region, including Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma.

OPINION

night my Dad had a dream that Seth had him help put in a corn test plot. In the dream, my Dad went out in the field and put in the test plot. Pleased with himself, he invited Seth to go check out his work the next day. To my Dad’s horror, he then realized he had put the test plot not only in the wrong field, but the field he put it in was now being dug for a swimming pool. Seth was mightily impressed with the details of how my Dad put in the imaginary plot in his wacky dream. So even if you don’t have farming in your blood, the farming dream may be alive and well in you regardless. Marriage, like farming, teaches us a lot about ourselves. It shows us our strengths, our weaknesses and, most importantly, in the end hopefully happiness. While Seth and I toast another year together, I want to also toast all the farmers out there as they prepare to climb into their combines. May your thermoses be full of coffee, and your hearts full of optimism for a safe and successful harvest. Cheers to you all! Kristin Kveno returned temporarily as The Land’s copy editor. ❖

LAND MINDS, from pg. 2 takes them in (to the barn, that is) and puts another dish of warm milk out. The problem has become that skunks around the area must have heard about the fabulous accommodations as well, and have been known to run up during feeding time and join the cats at the food dishes. My mother-in-law loves animals but does put her foot down when it comes to skunks — her “no-skunks” policy is strictly enforced at the farm and will remain that way, thank you very much. • Kristin’s farming myth No. 5: You don’t have to actually be a farmer to walk the walk or even talk the talk. Seth has taught my side of the family so much about agriculture. No question was too silly or stupid; he answered them all. He taught my brother how much fun it was to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities and head to the quiet of the farm woods for some target practice. My brother loved it, and Seth enjoyed showing the city kid that fun could be had not just in downtown St. Paul, but also out in the boonies.

“team members” — who are paid to sanitize the sometimes muddy, sometimes bloody realities of today’s farms and ranches for an increasingly misinformed, hopefully naïve consuming public. In the cleansing process, however, we trade accuracy for vagueness, honesty for deceit, and truth for deception. Truth be told, the vast majority of American — North American — farming and ranching is about herbicides, slaughter and manure and hiding these processes and practices behind sunny, inaccurate or misleading words only creates more costly mistrust that, sooner or later, will have to be cleaned up by farmers and ranchers, not the rebranding spinmeisters. “Harvest” cattle? What, PETA will become more farmer-friendly if we just say “harvest” instead of “slaughter”? That’s as absurd as calling cowboys chickens.

Walk the walk, talk the talk

culture abound. For centuries “crop protection” meant fences to keep livestock out of grain fields. Today “crop protection” really means chemistry — herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides — without hoping to sound like it means chemistry. Today we often say “barn,” as in livestock barn, when we really mean shed, as in machinery shed; often hear equipment dealers talk about “farm power” instead of “tractors;” and watch as veterinarians use “animal health products” to treat (even pre-treat) ailing livestock, not “drugs.” And “wastes” long ago replaced “manure” for, well, you know what. Indeed, we’ve taken our gift for word confusion to almost laugh-out-loud levels. For example, a generation ago, with new technology and no hesitation, we turned the simple hay “bale” into the oxymoronic “round bale” and, simultaneously, into the wonderfully redundant “square bale.” Most times, however, these shiny new words and not-at-all-accurate phrases aren’t new cats that just show up on the farm and ranch.

Farm Rescue nonprofit nears another milestone Group helps farmers who’ve been disabled or injured By BLAKE NICHOLSON Associated Press The Farm Rescue nonprofit in the Upper Midwest is approaching another milestone — it will help its 300th farm family in the region by the end of the year. The volunteer-based organization headquartered in North Dakota helped its 100th farm family in 2009 and its 200th in 2012. “Three hundred families in the Upper Midwest are able to continue supporting their communities and feeding America,” Bill Gross said. “These families are friends, neighbors and customers. They’re the rural community.” Farm Rescue plants and harvests crops for farmers in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa and eastern Montana who have experienced an illness, injury or natural disaster. It’s been operating since 2006, supported by donations, business sponsors and about 1,000 volunteers. “I appreciate the work they did for me; it helped quite a bit,” said Dan Dotzenrod, who became the 200th farmer to get help after he broke his neck in a fall on his southeastern North Dakota farm. “I’m mostly recovered — 90 to 95 percent. Still farming.” Gross said Farm Rescue, which operates on an annual cash budget of about $450,000, will help about 50 farmers annually for another year or two. “We need to build more support for the organization financially to expand beyond that level,” he said. “We are moving in that direction. Then, if we expand geographically in a few years, that number might grow.” Farm Rescue has gotten a big boost in recent years from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, which has contributed nearly $1 million since 2008. Fargo-based RDO Equipment Co., which owns and operates more than 60 dealerships in nine states, has supplied critical equipment, according to Gross. Keith Kreps, an RDO executive vice president, estimated the company has invested more than $1 million in the partnership. “Bill approached us with a way to give to the large community that we do business in, and directly affect the farmers and the industry that we make our living in,” Kreps said. “We just thought it was the perfect fit.” ❖

The ‘Ten Commandments’ of farm safety Know your tractor: Always look at the operator’s manual before operating an unfamiliar machine. Know the location of each control. Roll Over Protective Structures: Most tractor fatalities are the result of an overturn. The use of ROPS in conjunction with a seat belt saves lives. ROPS works by limiting the roll to 90 degrees, and protecting the operator’s station from being crushed under the weight of the machine. Drive safely: Avoid operating a tractor near ditches, holes, and embankments. If you must do so, then allow a six-foot clearance between the edge and the machine. Never start a tractor inside a closed structure: Always open the doors before starting the tractor, or other internal combustion engines. A closed space can quickly fill with deadly Carbon Monoxide. Power Take Off shields: Your tractor’s PTO is a serious hazard. A PTO running at 1000 rpm, will pull in clothing at a rate of 8 feet per second. If your PTO has a damaged or missing shield, replace it before operating the tractor. Hitches and drawbars: Always hitch towed loads to the drawbar. This is the only safe place to attach a load. Hitching to the seat bracket or the axle, or anything else higher than the drawbar, can cause the tractor to back flip in less than a second.

Never leave a running tractor unattended: Always shut down your equipment if you are going to leave the work area. The risks of fire or unauthorized or unintended operation far outweigh any possible benefit. If you have children on your farm, take the keys with you. Fuel when cool: Never refuel a tractor when it is running, or when the engine is hot. This is of special importance on older gasoline-powered equipment. Gasoline is not only highly flammable, it can be explosive in vapor form. No riders: If your tractor is equipped with a ROPS, it is not designed to protect anyone outside the operator’s station. No one other than the operator has any business riding on a tractor, or worse yet, an implement being towed by a tractor. Don't ride on a tractor and don't allow others to ride! Speed and carelessness kill: Never rush while operating a tractor. There is only one acceptable speed for tractor operation – “safe speed.” Allow plenty of time to get to and from the work area. An overly fatigued operator is liable to make mistakes, or become inattentive. Operating a tractor and implement in the field is both mentally taxing and monotonous. Get off the machine and stretch every so often; it really helps. This article was submitted by the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety. For more information, visit www.necasag.org. ❖

driving the tractors and taking us all down memory lane. Well, some were taken down memory lane, and some young farmers were proud to drive something their grandfather once used, and others watched and imagined how their grandfather may have used a tractor like that. There was the sound of the tractors — some were real putt-putts and others were smooth as butter. It’s always an exciting time as the ride begins, and the tractors all start up. It’s a sense of pride that I can’t explain, but it’s there, and it’s very real. There are the families of the ride — farmers of every age, wanna-be farmers, women, and young children who were there grooming their love of the feel and the sound of an old tractor. For young children it’s great fun; for their families, it’s the future of their farms. When the ride was over, I was asking my husband’s aunt if she had seen that old, rusty Oliver. She laughed and said it reminded her of a Cherokee County man who drove an old tractor like that in regional rides. She told me he put a sign on the tractor that read, “She may not be pretty, but she puts out.” You gotta love farmers and their sense of humor ... and the desire of a father and son to share the experience of a simple tractor ride together.

Item: Aug. 20, 2014; The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that zebra mussels were found in Christmas Lake in Shorewood, just south of Lake Minnetonka. Item: Aug. 4, 2014; New finds of aquatic invasive species have been reported in Green Lake near Spicer and Games Lake THE OUTDOORS near Sundburg, both in Kandiyohi County, according By John Cross the the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The other day I was leaving German Lake in Le Sueur County (Minn.) where an official sign at the access informed me the lake was designated as infested waters after Eurasian watermilfoil was discovered growing there a couple of years ago. After loading the boat onto the trailer, I pulled ahead to a designated boat cleaning area and carefully scrutinized the trailer, boat and boat motor for any bits of clinging vegetation. Having failed to bring another container of water from home and even though my self-contained bait bucket still had only the water dumped in at the bait shop, as required, I poured out my remaining minnows and water in the designated area for bait disposal. Had I been fishing on a high-risk lake equipped with a boat decontamination facility — Mille Lacs for example — my rig also might have undergone a high-pressure, hot water cleaning procedure to further clean it. But my boat is a simple affair with no live well or bilge to empty so I only had to remove the plug before heading down the road, legal as can be. Still, I wondered. So far, only Eurasian watermilfoil has been detected in German Lake with no indication that another aquatic invasive species — zebra mussels — have established a toehold. But who knows? Such discoveries typically occur either by accident or when they become numerous enough to finally be noticed. When I backed my trailer into the water to launch and retrieve my boat, water seeped into all kinds of nooks and crannies, some inaccessible to even high pressure washes. A few drops of water from a zebra mussel-infected lake that might have lingered within the frame of my trailer quite possibly could contain hundreds of veliger — microscopic larvae of the pesky critter.

By MARK STEIL Minnesota Public Radio News The boom in farmland prices of recent years could be cooling, setting up a potential economic blow to Minnesota farmers. Minnesota’s farmland is worth about $100 billion, and given that land often accounts for 80 percent of a farm’s assets, that value has served as an economic engine. It provides farmers the collateral they need to buy equipment and grow crops. But the most recent quarterly survey agricultural bankers by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, which tracks the important asset, shows Minnesota farmland prices have started to decline, said Joe Mahon, a regional economist for the Fed. Prices per acre have fallen about 4 1/2 percent from what they were a year ago. That would reflect a decline of about $4 billion in farm wealth across the state, reversing a steady upward trend for much of the last decade, when land prices more than doubled in value. At the end of last year, farm land sold for an average of about $4,800 an acre — and the best land more than twice that. At $10,000 an acre, a hundred acres could cost $1 million or more. Mahon said land prices began falling in the state late last year after the selling price of corn — the state’s most valuable crop — tumbled to unprofitable levels. He said the prices of other commodities also fell. “So we’re seeing this environment where the crop prices for corn, soybeans and wheat have all come down over the last year or two,” Mahon said. “And that’s reflected in lower farm incomes.” With incomes down, fewer farmers can afford land, and with a smaller number of farmers bidding for

the available acres, land prices are slipping. Grain prices are not expected to recover any time soon, given record supplies of corn and soybeans predicted for the nation’s fall harvest. “Farm incomes have come down,” Mahon said. “And they’re probably going to stay down for a little while.” But not everyone agrees the trend necessarily means land prices will take a big drop. Some farm analysts believe farmland prices are stable. Despite low crop prices, other factors are helping to keep the land market steady, said Randy Dickhut, vice president of real estate operations for Omahabased Farmers National Company, which sells farmland across the Midwest. Low-interest rates are available to finance deals and many farmers still have plenty of cash on hand to invest in land, Dickhut said, “profits that farmers and landowners have realized over the last few years.” Corn prices soared in the past five years to their highest level ever. Much of the boom was driven by increasing demand from the ethanol industry, which now uses more than a third of the nation’s corn crop each year to make fuel. The high prices gave many crop farmers their most profitable years ever. In Minnesota an analysis of profits by some 1,300 crop farmers’ showed they made an average profit in 2012 of about $250,000. However, if the current high prices for farmland amount to an economic bubble, much like the housing market went through in the recent recession, that would bode poorly for the state’s economy. ❖

in the middle of their third day combining spring wheat. He was pleased at how well harvest was going — “we got a pretty good yield.” After the day’s combining, Wilts esti- Dennis Wilts mated that they would be about a third of the way done. It looked as though harvest, however, was going to take a break as “it sounds like it’s supposed to start raining tonight.” While the rain may have put a temporary damper on wheat harvest, it’s still a welcome sight. He said they had also gotten one or two inches of rain over the previous weekend. Wilts is spraying his sugar beets with a fungicide to ward off cercospora; it wasn’t bad yet, and he was hoping to stave off this fungal disease. The high humidity and warm temperatures were making cercospora an issue on area sugar beet fields. He hopes to only have to spray the fungi-

cide once this year. As for how the sugar beets are doing, Wilts said that “with the rain we got now, they’re looking better.” He explained that the crop is pretty much made in August through the beginning of September. “We should have the moisture for them.” Meanwhile, the soybeans are “looking pretty.” With the plants over waist high, he said it “looks like it’s going to be a pretty good crop.” The corn crop, however, needs some heat to get it really going. The moisture that fell was needed, but the heat is definitely something that’s missing. “We’ve got some fields that look good, and some that are behind.” Once wheat harvest is complete, Wilts will begin doing tillage on those fields. He said they grid sample all of their wheat fields. This year’s wheat fields will become next year’s sugar beet fields. “We’re sitting pretty good for moisture,” he said, “but we need the heat to get the crop moving along. We need a

The Hoffmans New Ulm, Minn. Since Aug. 1, Don Hoffman’s farm has received one and a quarter inches of rain. Every single drop was needed, and very much welcomed. Don Hoffman When The Land spoke with Hoffman on Aug. 20, he hoped that the forecast would come true for rain. “Tonight it’s a pretty good chance and tomorrow morning,” he said. “Point blank, we’ll take any.” The lack of rain hasn’t hurt Hoffman’s hay crop much at all. “We took the fourth crop hay last week. In fact, took it a week early,” he said. For the “second time in the last 15 years we’ll take a fifth crop.” Hoffman expects the fifth cutting to happen around Sept. 7 or 8. “The alfalfa crop is in its best year,” he said. “We’re incredibly happy about it.” Their corn “has a long way to go yet,” however. Hoffman said that he probably won’t be chopping corn before Sept. 15. “Corn is just starting to fill, so the rains are timely for me.” He doesn’t worry about drying corn this fall as it will be used strictly for silage. The lack of heat doesn’t concern him as it does those in his area who grow conventional corn — he can just chop the corn a week later if conditions aren’t right. His soybean fields have been sprayed for aphids and sprayed with Roundup as the weeds keep popping up. Even though Hoffman noticed aphids in his soybeans, overall he said the beans look “pretty good.” He said he hopes he might “salvage a decent crop out of it after all.” Hoffman is “just peachy” that rain was on its way — the timing of the moisture, he said, was “very beneficial” even though he knows it’s a little See FIELDS, pg. 14

A half an inch can go a long way when it comes to muchneeded rain. When The Land spoke with Jared Thronson on Aug. 21, Jared Thronson he was hopeful that the forecast — “quite a bit of chances of rain” — would come true. Earlier in the week, his fields had received that half inch and he said it had helped a lot. The corn is “still looking pretty good,” he said, and that bit of rain came just in time for the beans. The plants are “just about done flowering,” said Thronson, and “the lower pods are filled pretty good.” He sprayed the beans for aphids Aug. 14 and 15. “I could find aphids on every plant,” he said, adding that he wanted to get the spraying done while the ground was in good shape. In other fields, he said his wheat was “getting ripe.” Thronson sprayed Roundup on his spring wheat Aug. 19 “to help it get a little more even.” He estimated that he was 10 to 12 days away from harvesting the wheat, and said not too many people in his area had combines running yet. When his wheat is ready, Thronson wanted to be able to jump in the combine and go, so he was busy “checking everything over again.” Meanwhile, he was getting the sprayer cleaned up and ready to go for next year, and still had “some ditching to do in the winter wheat field,” as well as spreading some fertilizer. The winter wheat field may become soybeans next year so Thronson said he was going to try to get the soil sampled. Thronson is feeling optimistic about how the crops are faring. With cooler weather forecasted, a little warmth and some rain would be ideal to get their crops really flourishing.

water standing.” That’s good, because he said it wasn’t forecast to end there. “The next four to five days there’s a chance of rain every day,” said Hagen. Until Sunday his crops had been way behind in moisture, so “it was just in time — the crops look good.” “The beans are filling out now; lot of pods on them,” Hagen said. “I think they’ll start flowering now with all this moisture.” The corn looks “real good.” Hagen estimates that his soybean and corn crop is 90 percent good to excellent. A little hail fell on one small area and “stripped the corn leaves.” Hagen said he would be “getting the new combine tomorrow.” Getting it set up will be on his to-do list, right along with getting the bins and dryer ready. Hagen said he had hauled the last of the corn, “and the bins are all empty.”

He has had the opportunity to get off the farm more than once recently. He attended the Iowa State Fair, which he described as “crowded” but “a nice day.” He and his wife, Christy, went to a Minnesota Vikings preseason game at TCF Stadium in Minneapolis — “It was nice to be outside.” He also enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Steele County Fair in Owatonna, Minn. — “I go every year.” Only 40 minutes from his house, Hagen heads north of the border for “the fair food, and interesting people to watch.” If all the predicted rain does fall, he isn’t too concerned about it; “even if we get plenty, it’s good.” The crops need any rain they can get, having received only 10 percent of normal rainfall for July, according to Hagen. “It will be a good crop now.” ❖

Minnesota farmers tapped to combat hunger in hometowns Invest an Acre program turns Minnesota farmers’ harvest donations into meals for local families Minnesota farmers have an opportunity this fall to help solve a rising but little-known problem affecting rural communities throughout the state. This year in rural Minnesota, families will miss 40 million meals. Minnesota farmers already play a significant role in food production for the state, country and world. But a need still exists, and in rural communities, hunger is often hidden. Feeding America’s Invest an Acre program turns farmers’ contributions into meals for local families. Farmers can get involved in two ways: They can make a cash donation now or pledge to make a donation from this year’s crop at harvest. Farmers do not need to make a final commitment until the crops are at the elevator. “Hunger does not discriminate,” said Jennifer Woodford, executive director of Channel One Regional Food Bank. “It does not care where you live. Hunger does not care whether you are young or old. Hunger can strike anyone at any time. “For many families, a serious life event means hunger strikes when it is least expected and defenses are down. A gift through Invest an Acre can help us stop hunger in its tracks right in local communities.”

Hunger is often a hidden problem that affects seniors, working families and children in rural as well as metro areas. One in 10 Minnesotans is at risk of missing a meal every day. Invest an Acre is part of a larger initiative to actively engage farmers in combating hunger — Harvest to End Hunger Minnesota. The second arm of the program is Share Fresh MN, a fresh-produce donation program that accepts unharvested or unsold produce from farmers. The program is simple: Farmers are asked to visit www.HarvestToEndHungerMN.org and pledge the revenue from an acre, bushel or any amount of their 2014 crop to help fight hunger in their own communities. When harvest nears, farmers will be reminded to go online to create a donation form to bring to their local elevator with their grain donation. One hundred percent of the donation stays in the farmer’s community, and all of the money goes directly to provide food to hungry families. The Monsanto Company is matching every donation nationally, dollar for dollar, up to $675,000, doubling the impact. For more information, visit www.HarvestToEndHungerMN.org.

Grain Angles A broader perspective I recently had a great opportunity to help guide farm tours at a regional farm-city day event sponsored by our local extension office. It was a perfect morning and hundreds of families, now generations removed from agriculture, came to see how crops were grown and the milk they drink is produced. As an added bonus, they received a wonderful lunch and delicious cheese curds for a snack. As you might expect, I received all kinds of questions about the crops and animals we saw on our tour.

I’ve probably been too quick to dismiss these concerns and haven’t done enough to tell the story of American agriculture and the entrepreneurs who make it great. After this experience, not only did I think about things from a new perspective, but I believe some of the families may have a new perspective and appreciation for the agricultural industry. I hope some gained a better understanding of how crops provide the clean-burning ethanol we use every day, as well as the delicious and healthy milk we drink. I also hope these folks share their experience to other consumers, keeping the industry

The battle continues in the livestock markets. It has been, and will likely continue to be, a struggle between supply and demand. As a result of the uneasiness of the cattle and hog markets due to this struggle, chances are that the erratic behavior in price discovery will more than likely continue in the foreseeable future. For the most part the cattle market has been sagging over the past couple of weeks. One reason has been the beef cutout values which have been eroding throughout the period. This is reflecting reluctance by the retail sector to the higher price of beef and as a result indicating a JOE TEALE demand decline at the higher Broker prices. Great Plains Commodity Afton, Minn. Another reason might be the fact that weights are much higher than a year ago, which might be an indication that producers were holding inventories back to capture the higher prices reflected in the futures prices. But futures have not inverted and the back months are now lower than the nearby contracts, so inventories are likely to move to market sooner. This could keep prices more on the defensive if immediate supplies increase in the short term. On Aug. 22 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the monthly Cattle on Feed report. The findings are as follows: on feed, 98 percent; placed, 93 percent; and marketed, 91 percent. The report was seen as neutral to slightly negative as placements were higher than anticipated while marketed was less than projected.

The following market analysis is for the week ending Aug. 29. CORN — Corn gapped lower from the opening bell last week and never regained enough momentum to touch last Friday’s close. Favorable weather and harvest creeping up on us did little to encourage buyers. The open on Aug. 24 was delayed for two hours due to technical issues on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange due to software upgrades. The late opening didn’t faze traders since nothing was moving and there wasn’t the urgency or stress to get trading going. The anticipation of a huge PHYLLIS NYSTROM CHS Hedging Inc. crop just around the corner keeps St. Paul a lid on short-term upside potential. World geopolitical events and a crop that isn’t in the bin yet has prevented new contract lows for the time being, but if the crop isn’t threatened with an early freeze, new lows are likely. The conflict between Ukraine and Russia continued to make headlines throughout the week. At week’s end, NATO estimated 1,000 Russian troops were in eastern Ukraine manning weaponry and advising pro-separatists. On the weather front, recent widespread rains should be adding ear weight. Crop conditions improved 1 percent as of Aug. 24 to 73 percent good/excellent, a 20-year high. Corn was 35 percent dented as of Aug. 24 compared to 43 percent on average. Early corn yields in the Delta states were phenomenal, running as high as 170-220 bushels per

Nystrom: ‘Bulls grasping for something to feed on’ NYSTROM, from pg. 15 acre. No extreme temperatures are in the current forecasts, but many now would welcome conditions that would push the crop to maturity. Prices have attracted routine new crop corn sales to Costa Rica and Columbia, but interest has been quiet. Weekly export sales for old crop were negative at -1.3 million bushels, but new crop were better than expected at 27.4 million bushels. Weekly ethanol production was strong at 913,000 barrels per day, down 23,000 bpd or 2.6 percent from the previous week but 11 percent above a year ago. Ethanol stocks were down 5 percent from the prior week at 727 million gallons. This is the lowest stocks number in over three months. Turning again to world events, Russia’s incursion into Ukraine plumped up wheat values this week. This strength spilled over to the corn market, but that pull softened as the trade headed home for a long holiday weekend. There has not been any reported actual interruption to export shipments out of the region. This should be monitored for further developments that could impact wheat and corn prices. OUTLOOK: Corn has limited upside potential near term if the bal-

ance of the year proceeds as expected. New lows will be anticipated, but it may take until closer to the Sept. 11 U.S. Department of Agriculture monthly crop report. The carry in the futures market from December to March has been relatively steady in the 12 1⁄2 to 13 1⁄2 cent range. Eighty percent of full carry equates to approximately 13 1⁄2 cents. This may be an attractive place to begin locking in the carry, with additional layers in place out to 15 cents. The lack of grower selling to pressure the December futures relative to the March futures may be one limiting factor to the spread trading to full carry. For the last four weeks, December corn has been trapped between $3.58 and $3.81 per bushel. Every day we get closer to new crop supplies becoming available to the market; this will favor new contract lows in the future. For the week, December corn was down 6 3⁄4 cents to close at $3.64 3⁄4 per bushel. SOYBEANS — Soybeans were a tale of two crops, old and new. Old crop basis levels were screaming higher through most of the week with reports of plus-400 SX reportedly paid in the eastern belt early in the week. Domestic values remained strong throughout the week and if you offered beans, you needed to be prepared to have them taken. By mid-week, export values began to decline as new supplies began

MARKETING

Hog market oversold, but doesn’t mean weakness TEALE, from pg. 15 It is not likely that this report will have a significant impact on the cattle market. However the cold storage report suggested that supplies in storage were much greater than projected. This should continue to keep the struggle between supply and demand at the forefront of the pricing of cattle since the overall supply of cattle is still well below average. Producers should remain in constant awareness of market conditions and protect inventories as needed. The hog market has been under extreme pressure over the past several weeks. The supply of hogs and a weaker demand for pork have sent prices in a real tailspin during the period. The lean index, for example, has dropped over $11.00 just in the past week ending Aug. 22.

Obviously, the market is oversold; however that does not mean that there may be more weakness ahead. The USDA Cold Storage report released on Aug. 22 indicated far more pork in storage than expected. The supply of hogs seems to have increased since the initial porcine epidemic diarrhea virus outbreak back last spring that sent prices to all-time highs. Because of this increase in supply and the high prices paid for pork in the past several months, a major recovery in prices seem remote at this time. However, because of the oversold conditions and the relationship to other meats, a price recovery maybe possible in the upcoming weeks. Producers are urged to remain on top of market conditions and protect their inventories when necessary. ❖

to be harvested in the Delta. Early bean yields in Louisiana and Mississippi were running as high as 96 bu./acre, but most were in a 58-80 bu./acre range. September soybeans showed high volatility by trading a weekly range from $10.64 1⁄4 to $11.89 1⁄4 per bushel. There some reports of processors pulling soymeal offers due to the lack of available soybeans. Soybean crop conditions as of Aug. 24 were down 1 percent to 70 percent good/excellent. This rating is the highest since 1992. This reinforces ideas that the yield on the Sept. 11 crop report will be raised. Market chatter during the week included references to Sudden Death Syndrome, but it usually happens somewhere each year and it feels like bulls are grasping for something to feed on. Soybean acres in Brazil are projected to increase 4 percent this fall at the expense of corn acres as beans have the best returns. This assumption may be in conflict with ideas bean acreage could suffer due to low soybean prices. Weekly export sales for old crop were a net negative 2.3 million bushels, but better than expected for new crop at 47.4 million bushels. The cancellations were likely rolled into new crop with

just one week left in the marketing year. OUTLOOK: Favorable August weather adding bushels, high crop condition ratings, and no sign of a frost threat suggest further downside for the soybean market. Based on recent action, November soybeans may be content to ease lower rather than race lower ahead of the Sept. 11 crop report. After setting a new contract low this week in the November contract at $10.19 3⁄4 per bushel, the next level of support will be from $10.00 to $10.10 per bushel. This doesn’t rule out lower prices, but psychologically the $10 level may cause the market to pause. First upside resistance will be the 14-day moving average at $10.41 per bushel. For the week, November soybeans tumbled 17 3⁄4 cents lower, the September contract collapsed 76 1⁄2 cents lower, December meal was down $2.00 and December bean oil was off 46 ticks. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending Aug. 29: Chicago December wheat gained 1 1⁄4 cents, Minneapolis wheat was 4 3⁄4 cents lower and Kansas City declined 1 1⁄4 cents. October crude oil rallied $2.31 to $95.96, ULSD was 2 1⁄2 cents higher, RBOB rose 3 1⁄2 cents and natural gas jumped 18 1⁄4 cents higher. ❖

WACHTLER, from pg. 15 healthy and profitable for years to come. Reflecting on this event with consumers made me stop and think about my learning experiences in the ag industry as well. The best of these learning experiences stemmed from great one-on-one interactions I’ve had out on farms with producers. The most valuable time was spent when there wasn’t an agenda, script to follow or sale to make. I’ve learned a lot through these relationships; I hope I’ve returned some good advice to the producers that have taught me so much during my career. It’s important to take time to visit with your banker, agronomist, insur-

ance agent, equipment dealer or other ag professional. Share your story and find out what’s going on in their world. Like my recent experience, taking these opportunities allows each individual to gain a broader perspective of both the farm and businesses that work with the farm.

The maximum ARC-CO coverage is 10 percent, from 76 to 86 percent, of the county benchmark revenue (yield x price) for a crop, with potential payments made on 85 percent of crop base acres.

cheese manufacturers are operating plants at or near capacity, according to Dairy Market News. Some manufacturers continue adding nonfat dry milk to vats to increase volume. Early this week in Wisconsin, some milk previously committed to cheese was re-directed to bottling, but anticipated milk supplies for cheese have now resumed. Cheese curd sales are robust and above a year ago. With profits from curd sales ahead of profits from barrel sales, some manufacturers are delaying delivery of barrel orders in favor of selling curds. Some operations are running 24/7 and could sell even more. Customers for barrels are being told that it will be closer to the end of the year before the situation resolves and even that is not certain. Cash butter appeared to go into a meltdown the first three days of the week following two previous weeks of gain (42.5 cents) and hitting a record high. It dropped 8.25 cents, then regained 1.5 cents, closing Friday at $2.7550, down 6.75 cents on the week but $1.3175 above a year ago. Twenty-nine cars traded hands this week. NDPSR butter averaged $2.1824, up 6.5 cents. ■ Labor Day marks another milestone for the DairyLine radio program.

We think EPA not only is overstepping common sense boundaries on this issue, we believe they are overstepping legal boundaries that were granted under the Clean Water Act legislation.

— Bob Stallman tion of “navigable waters” and waters of the United States continue. Stallman’s definition is those bodies of water Congress intended to be regulated, like the rivers, the bays, the estuaries, etc. The issue, he said, is that EPA says everything is connected, even the drainage ditches across Minnesota’s farming landscape. “And therein lies the problem,” he

said. “EPA is of the opinion that everywhere that water runs they should be able to regulate.” As AFB President, does Stallman get tired of fighting battles with EPA? “Definitely not,” he said. “I’ve got a farm down in Texas. We’ve had some rain, in fact a huge rain storm parked over our part of Texas. My cousin took a picture after this 6-inch rain storm and sent it to me in D.C. It showed water across this 400-acre field of mine. I said, ‘Here are the new waters of the U.S. under the EPA rules.’ So I have a personal interest in this program.” Future farm economy Stallman hesitated to predict the state of the farm economy for the next few years, even though the message is lower grains prices. “Predicting what is going to happen economically for agriculture is a lot like predicting elections and the weather,” he said. “America agriculture is so strong. We’ll see a lessening of net See STALLMAN, pg. 27A

Paap: No ‘one-size-fits-all’ water management By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer “Water quantity and water quality are shaping up as major issues in Minnesota,” said Minnesota Farm Bureau president Kevin Paap. “This spring there was too much water in most areas, sometimes Kevin Paap not enough, and that is why drainage management systems become a key part of planning the future of ag water in our state.” Speaking at the recent Farmfest event, Paap expressed concern over the growing role of government in the handling of Minnesota’s waters. “What we have learned,” he said, “is that locally designed and implemented programs that are volunteer but have technical assistance and perhaps some cost-share assistance is generally the best remedy. Water management policy is not a one-program-fits-all. “When Washington people say you’re all going to do this program, it’s simply not going to work. That’s our growing problem with agencies in government, state and national. They like to suggest go with your list of 10 Best Management Practices, but the reality is that a BMP for one farmer, one soil series, simply is not a BMP elsewhere.” The science of drainage Paap said that the considerable rains of June “set back the perceptions” of those who don’t understand agriculture and the science of drainage. He described how the ground should act like a sponge, slowly soaking up and absorbing moisture from excess rains rather than letting it run off the landscape. Sometimes, however, reality doesn’t match the ideal situation.

Stallman on Texas cattle industry STALLMAN, from pg. 20 farm income from the record levels of the past few years, but long-term you need to look at the debt-toasset position, the so-called equity position of American’s farmers and ranchers. “America’s farmers and ranchers have done a great job of reducing their debt load. This isn’t like the ’80s when farmers were head-over-heels in debt. Today’s farmers are doing a good job. They can weather a downturn because most farmers knew a downturn was inevitable after the past few years. I’m optimistic because the world needs American agriculture. There’ll be some adjustments, but at the end of the day, American agriculture will still be standing strong.” Texas cattle industry With drought forcing a near sellout of the Texas cattle industry the past 2 to 3 years, will they rebuild? If so, how? “I get asked that question a lot,” said Stallman. “Yes, we did practically decimate our Texas cattle herd, but you’ve got to look at where the numbers

were coming from. A lot of these were small producers with 30-40 cows. They sold their calves because it cost too much to keep them. “But the big guys got pasture up in the Midwest; some even renting pasture land up here in Minnesota. So they’ve somewhat maintained their cow numbers. Now that we’re getting some moisture regrowing our pastures, these guys will restock their Texas pastures. So yes, we will restock but, given the price of heifers, it’s going to take awhile.” Beef prices Have beef prices gotten so high that retail beef at the meat counter is slowing? Again, Stallman said he is asked that question frequently. “Restaurants keep raising their prices. People keep paying those prices for high end beef because beef continues a favorite,” he said. “It will affect substitution of beef with other meats, poultry most likely because pork prices stay up due to the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus issue. But I’ve been amazed at how demand for quality beef continues strong. Everybody keeps eating hamburger regardless.” ❖

Mixed results in ag’s battle against greenhouse gases

Although agriculture is safer than it once was, it still ranks among the most dangerous industries. Those working on farms risk fatal and nonfatal injuries, work-related lung diseases, noise-induced hearing loss, skin diseases, and certain cancers from prolonged sun and chemical use. Many of the mechanical, chemical, and environmental hazards increase the risk of accidents. There were 476 farmers and farmworkers that died from work-related injuries in 2010. The leading cause of death for farmworkers is tractor overturns. Unfortunately, we continue seeing injuries and fatalities in the agricultural area and often they can be prevented. Most everyone working in the agricultural area knows of someone that has been injured or has died as a direct result of a farming accident.

Farm equipment is safer than it used to be, but there are still injuries and fatalities that can occur. Often youth are utilized to help out with the farm work. Be sure to look out for their interests by keeping them safe. Always think of how to safely operate the machines and equipment you are running before you start and be sure to tell youth important information as well. In 2009, an estimated 16,100 youth were injured on farms and 3,400 of these injuries were due to farm work. On average, there are 113 youth less than 20 years of age that dies annually from farm-related injuries, with the most prevalent age group being those from 16-19 years of age.

progress.” Frederickson said that an Ag Water Quality Certification Program is being worked on that will be able to provide answers to some of the problems farmers face regarding water issues. “We can help establish some of these BMPs on their farms,” he said. “And when they’re done with it, they get certainty for the next 10 years. That means nobody is going to come out and tell them what to do or what they can’t do.” The program is a collaborative effort with the MDA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency. “EPA came to Minnesota and said to our farmers, ‘water management is your issue, not ours. We want you to tell us what works and how to make it work,’” said Frederickson. “That’s an incredible happening. USDA Ag Secretary Vilsack came out also, plus Gov. Dayton signed off on this memo of understanding involving USDA, EPA and the State of Minnesota. We are the lead agency on this effort. I’m excited because I know good things will happen.” ❖

contribution we can make from carbon sequestration is likely not going to slow things down,” he said. But he emphasized there are other good reasons to build organic matter and store carbon in soils. “It improves soil fertility and water holding capacity,” Baker said, “so we still want to encourage that strategy, but it’s not going to be a big player in our greenhouse gas solutions.” Perhaps a bigger potential benefit from no-till farming is on the issue of nitrous oxide. “It’s a much more potent greenhouse gas,” said Baker. “It’s present in much smaller concentrations but nitrogen fertilizer is the major source of this contaminant so things that we can do to minimize its presence will likely have a bigger impact in our clean air strategies.” He’s realistic about changes in crop production having only minor effects on CO2 emissions, but he does see different strategies in nitrogen fertilizer usage possibly reducing the threat of nitrous oxide into the atmosphere.

John Baker

“But it’s going to be difficult,” he said, “because a lot of the things we need to do to reduce nitrous oxide emissions are similar to what we need to do to reduce nitrate pollution. That means more careful control of nitrogen, especially ‘over fertilization’. It boils down to incorporating best management practices on all your inputs in crop production.” Avoiding the blame game “I think overall, Minnesota farmers are doing great on their stewardship of our soils and water,” said Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “Sure, there are mistakes but we need to get away from the ‘blame game’ which is so easy to inflate into an emotional brouhaha.” He suggested that Best Management Practices is where the focus needs to be, and that farmers all over the state are doing just that. “Farmers are pretty darn honest about their own assessments too,” Frederickson said. “(Surveys) indicate about 40 percent of Minnesota farmers admit being part of the problem, but are also willing to be part of the solution, too. That’s sort of the Minnesota style. They say, ‘Let’s see what we can do to fix this rather then pointing fingers.’ I’m optimistic about our

THE LAND, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014

By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer In some ways the battle against greenhouse gases has been a losing one and, in regard to agriculture, a somewhat unsettled one. “We’ve made a lot of progress the last 30 to 40 years on particulates, sulphur and things of that nature. Acid rain, for example, is not the problem it used to be. In general our city air is cleaner than it used to be,” said John Baker, research leader with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Ag Research Service, “but there has been little progress over greenhouse gases.” Speaking July 23 at a farm field day event, Baker said that agriculture’s role regarding greenhouse gases is still being sorted out. “Initially there was a lot of optimism that if we adopted certain farming practices we could ‘soak up’, so to speak, a lot of the excess carbon dioxide,” he said. “But that optimism has tempered because the problem is so large in terms of emissions that changes in farming practices just didn’t impact the atmosphere.” Early thinking, said Baker, was that a major shift to no-till farming could sequester a lot of carbon, but it looks like those amounts are very modest. “Even if you accept some of the initial estimates, the amount of CO2 that’s being emitted into the atmosphere, primarily from coal and gasoline consumption, is so great that the

Dairy’s shift to cheese making a slow, tasty process By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer Switching your dairy operation from selling milk to making and selling cheddar cheese is one huge shift in strategy, especially when you’re milking 180 cows. But that significant transformation recently happened for Alise Lucas Sjostrom

Alise Sjostrom

and Lucas Sjostrom, operators of Brooten, Minn.-based Redhead Creamery. In fact, one of their very first batches of cheddar cheese was a delectable treat Aug. 5 in the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute tent at Farmfest where The Land talked with Lucas Sjostrom. “We’re on our fifth make of cheese

curds,” he said. “My wife Alise and her mother, Linda, are now making cheese curds three days a week. The cheese making occurs about 100 feet from where the cows are milked so this is indeed a close knit family operation.” You start slowly in this business, especially when you’re dealing with a food product with a limited shelf life. Sjostrom said only about 15 percent of daily milk production goes into curds so far. Market reaction will obviously determine which way production trends in the future. So what triggered this dramatic new We’re rapidly venture? getting to the “When my wife point where we was 16, she knew can ship anyshe wanted to where overnight return to the farm but she also knew and customers she didn’t want to will be getting milk cows,” he said. fresh curds two “So on one of her to three days return trips to the after processing. farm she told her dad, ‘I want to — Lucas Sjostrom make cheese here on our farm’. She had visited another dairy farm making cheese and liked what she saw. So the past 12 years she has worked to do just that.” After Alise got a dairy quality degree at the University of Minnesota, Sjostrom said they lived in Vermont and Wisconsin, two cheese ‘hotbeds.’ “She worked for three cheese companies during that span so she learned the craft, including the marketing of the product,” he said. “Plus raising our own family on the farm was something we wanted to do.” Alise is president of Redhead Creamery. Except for a few Brown Swiss left over from an earlier 4-H project, the herd today is Holstein. Lucas grew up on a dairy farm near New Ulm, Minn. He worked for the National Holstein Association after his graduation from U of M and currently works for Dairy Herd Management, a national dairy publication. How big of a market is Redhead Creamery shooting for? Because cheese curds need to be sold and consumed fresh, they’re being cautious. “So local trade at least for now is where we are,” said Sjostrom. “We’re rapidly getting to the point where we can ship anywhere overnight and customers will be getting fresh curds two to three days after processing. “But we’re hoping to get a following of customers who will drive directly to our farm and get these fresh curds when they’re still warm — directly out of the vat at 3 p.m. on Fridays.” They make cheese three days a week; curds just on Fridays. The price right now is $5 per half-pound bag. Aged cheddar is also on the agenda but that won’t be ready till November.

For 18-year-old Noah Fenske of Utica, Minn., the topic was the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, the most expensive disease to ever hit the swine industry, with an estimated 5 million to 7 million pigs killed since it was first discovered in the United States in May 2013. “We each could pick our own topic,” Fenske said. “I choose PEDv because it continues being such a disastrous and costly disease to our swine producers. I got tremendous amounts of information from the internet which I used in putting together my presentation. The National Pork Board has a good website on this issue. Also Harris Vaccines

down in Iowa has great info on PED’s disease so that really helped.” He said a strong educational program is a must in doing battle against PEDv, particularly since there is not as yet a reliable vaccine for medical control. He said that both producers and consumers need to get better educated — “It can’t transfer to any other animal, including human beings.” Fenske said he was headed to Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar this fall, majoring in Dairy Science and Technology. He already has work experience at two area dairy farms, and believes his transition into the academic world will be a rewarding challenge. Other topics for the Ambassador candidates ranged from ag literacy to nutrition and cooking information. When the candidates were not on stage, videos played featuring three Minnesota pork production farms sharing stories of the stewardship and technology now standard in modern swine operations. These videos directly addressed several misconceptions, such as use of hormones in pork production, usage of antibiotics, confinement housing, etc. Allison Bastian of Nicollet County was named the new Minnesota Pork Producers Ambassador. Taylor Homann of Pipestone County was first runner-up; Molly Frank of Mower County was second runner-up. ❖

Heidi’s Village, near Maienfeld, Switzerland

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

S

he’s not real, of course, but you’d be excused if you thought otherwise after visiting her tiny village in the hills above Maienfeld, in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. The storybook girl, Heidi, sprung forth from the mind of author Johanna Spyri in 1880 and would become one of the world’s best-selling books of all time. The tale of the orphan girl from the alps would also be adapted for motion pictures, television and stage countless times, perhaps most famously in the 1937 film “Heidi” starring a nine-yearold Shirley Temple in the title role. If you happen to find yourself traveling the hills and valleys of eastern

Switzerland, you’ll be walking the same paths trod by Spyri during her childhood summers, paths that would form the vivid setting of her famous work of literature. Witnessing the stunning landscape alone is worth the trip. But as long as you’re there, you might as well visit Heidi’s house, enjoy watching Heidi’s bell-ringing dairy cows and goats, grab a bite to eat at the Heidihof restaurant, sip from the Heidi fountain and, naturally, take a stroll through the Heidi gift shop. Back down in Maienfeld, you can even pull up a stool and have a drink at the Heidi wine bar. There’s something for everyone. ❖
