Do regulatory costs hurt farmers? Canola traits | Companies not willing to invest in new lines that lack big revenue potential BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

A canola trait that could reduce the need for insecticides may never come to market because seed companies aren’t willing to cover the immense regulatory costs associated with genetically modified technology, say canola industry representatives. Agriculture Canada researchers in Saskatoon have developed hairy canola plants that repel flea beetles. As noted in an Agriculture Canada publication released this year, “scientists have already field-tested GMO germplasm available for plant breeders to use in developing commercial varieties of hairy canola.” However, Pat Flaten, research manager with SaskCanola, said this transgenic trait might not be commercialized because crop science companies are primarily interested in blockbuster GM traits. “The seed industry has said that only ‘transformative’ transgenic approaches will really be considered,” said Flaten, who has heard that it requires $40 to $100 million to commercialize a transgenic trait. Stephen Yarrow, CropLife Canada vice-president of plant biotechnology, said those estimates are low. “How much does it cost these days to get a plant with a novel trait or a GM crop through the system?... I’ve heard numbers that are higher than that. Up to $150 million and up to 13 years.” Agriculture Canada scientists began investigating the potential of hairy canola nearly a decade ago with funding from SaskCanola, Alberta Canola Producers and the Canola Council of Canada. Nearly every canola seed in Western Canada is now sold with an insecticidal seed treatment to control flea beetles. As reported in an Ag Canada publication, a canola variety with hairs on the leaves and stems could help producers grow canola without these insecticides. Paul Gregory, a farmer and beekeeper who runs Interlake Forage Seeds in Fisher Branch, Man., introduced a resolution at a Manitoba Beekeepers’ Association meeting in November that called on farm organizations to lobby for hairy canola. “This trait was developed by public money…. It’s a hairy trait, so it’s chemical free,” he said. “They (chemical companies) obviously want to sell chemical so it kind of goes against their profit and their

GM presence could ‘shut down trade’ unless new rules developed BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

A veteran Canadian grain industry official says an international agreement to accept imports with lowlevel presence of genetically modified material is essential to avoid trade chaos in the future. A “tsunami” of new GM traits will be approved within years and could create shipping chaos if importing countries maintain a zero-tolerance policy for GM, Dennis Stephens, long affiliated with the Canada Grains Council and now secretary of the International Grain Trade Coalition, told an Ottawa grain symposium last week. The issue is becoming urgent and already costs grain exporters millions of dollars, he said. It will only get worse. SEE GMOs THREATEN TRADE, PAGE 2

bottom line…. I’d like to see some public pressure brought to bear on Syngenta, Bayer, Dow and Monsanto to bring this into (their) programs so we would all benefit.” Marcus Weidler, who works in business operations, seeds, with Bayer CropScience, said factors that determine if a crop trait enters the market include farmer demand, the time

required to commercialize and the cost. “The cost of (more than) $100 million to bring a new product to market is accurate, of which regulatory costs are a key contributor,” he said in an email. “For every product that makes it to market, there are many that do not. For instance, a trait such as drought

tolerance may result in one successful product and hundreds that are cancelled. We invest heavily in laboratory research, germplasm, specialized research and breeding expertise, growth trials, land and rental contracts, and many other musthave costs.” SEE PLANT RESEARCH, PAGE 3

GMOs threaten trade “We don’t have a global estimate of the cost impact right now but we know it is happening regularly where shipments are turned back and costs are continuing to escalate,” he said after a speech to a grain symposium sponsored by the CGC and Grain Growers of Canada. “What is scaring us is the sheer projections of numbers of new events (GM traits) that are going to be commercialized over the next five years.” He said it is estimated in the hundreds. “This really does have the potential to shut down trade,” he said. The IGTC is an international industry group pressing for agreement on allowing up to five percent inadvertent GM content, as long as it has been approved as safe under scientific rules by the exporting country. “The most important fact governments must understand is that rules must reflect varying levels of risk,” he said. “They also must understand that there is a cost in the price of food for their populations because of these restrictions.” Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said Canada is leading the charge for international talks to win approval of scientifically based rules on low level presence. He said 15 countries are part of a coalition that is pressing for a spring meeting on the topic organized by

the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. “We want to make sure people are thinking about it and we’re getting a critical mass,” he said after a speech to the grain symposium. “We now have 15 countries on board saying there has to be change and that is good news.” Even the European Union, long the bastion of GM food resistance, is beginning to move slightly, said Ritz. “There is some movement on feed now, but not on food but it is a start.” The minister said he believes an international deal eventually will be forged. “I’m optimistic that the world is coming to the realization that if you are going to have food security and sustainability, you are going to have to look at biotechnology and that means a good low-level policy,” he told reporters. Stephens said a low level presence policy “is an adjunct to a full approval process for GMOs around the world.” Ironically, while Canada is leading an international campaign to establish low-level-presence standards for inadvertent small amounts of GM material in imports, its does not have its own tolerance levels and zero remains the standard. The government is holding consultations on what level of tolerance should be written into regulations.

Moving a record western Canadian crop is proving to be a challenge. Cargill’s transportation manager, Chad Jarvis, told farmers at the Grain Expo during Canadian Western Agribition that no one has moved a 70 million tonne crop before so hiccups are certain. Farmers in some quarters are complaining about slow grain movement. Cargill itself recently had eight facilities ready to load, but no rail cars. But Jarvis said it’s too easy to just blame the railways. “Between the two railways they have 25,000 cars,” he said. “Their best service plan seems to be in that 10,000 to 11,000 cars a week planned service. That’s what they’ve been doing the last two or three months.” Typically, that dips to 6,000 to 8,000 around Christmas and then could drop lower depending on the severity of the weather.

In the winter, the trains have to go slower and are shorter because the colder weather affects the brake systems that rely on air pressure. There is also only one line for each railway through the mountains. “If we look at last year and ship the same amount of grain we shipped in the same period of time, let’s say the crop year ending July 31, we would have 14 weeks of 10,000 cars shipping before this crop is moved out,” he said. “That virtually means we cannot touch another tonne of the new crop that’s being planted in April and May until almost Christmas.” Jarvis said more trucks will likely be used to move grain faster. He also said although it might seem like grain isn’t moving, it is. “At the end of October grain receipts from producers was 1.4 million tonnes more than last year at the same time, so the system is working,” he said. “I know it doesn’t feel like it but we are seeing more grain move through the system.”

Plant research too costly? » CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE This doesn’t mean biotech firms will forgo niche traits and only focus on blockbuster GM traits, Yarrow said, but companies have to see a return on a $100 to $150 million investment. “It really does have to be a trait that not only provides a benefit for farmers, but a trait that is going to be very popular in the farming community.” Weidler said Bayer continues to invest heavily in developing traits that “enable the grower to harness the plant ’s full potential yield through improved genetics and protection of their crop.” Still, given the price tag, crop science companies are shying away from GM traits. “With investments being so high, and timelines in GM so long, nonGM has become a preferred approach for most new traits and technologies,” Weidler said. SaskCanola vice-chair Franck Groeneweg said hairy canola could provide a long-term solution to flea beetles. Yet, despite challenges with striped flea beetles, canola growers are satisfied with insecticidal seed treatments because they remain effective and easy to use, he added. “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” he said. “But I’m not sure they (growers) realize the possibility we have with this hairy canola. The GM solution is a long-term (solution) and could probably be a whole lot more effective.” Groeneweg said growers will have to lobby for hairy canola if they really want it. “If the farmers are saying we need this, then the research is going to get done a whole lot quicker.” Agriculture Canada scientists are now working on a non-GM version of hairy canola, but Flaten said the research is just underway.

Getting research into the field a system of checks and balances Transgenics take time | Are regulations on genetically modified plants protective or overprotective? BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

Hairs on the stems and leaves of canola plants can significantly reduce pesticide use for this crop in Western Canada. | AGRICULTURE CANADA PHOTO

Are 13 years and $150 million a reasonable amount of time and money to spend bringing a genetically modified plant trait to market? What if the trait was something simple, like additional hairs on the stem and leaves of canola, which could significantly reduce pesticide use in Western Canada? “It is a lot of money and a lot of time … (but) it’s a complex technology that requires a great deal of oversight,” said Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. “It’s reasonable to make sure that any technology that comes to market is environmentally safe, safe to eat and also meets the needs of farmers and consumers. The regulatory system doesn’t even deal with the last two concerns.” Franck Groeneweg, a canola grower from Edgeley, Sask., agreed the process is expensive. Still, the costs to agriculture could be immense if a

shoddy GM plant trait came onto the market, he said. “Food safety and public safety, what kind of cost do we put on it?” he said. “It only takes one case of poor technology impacting the public…. That’s not where I’d want to skimp.” Stephen Yarrow, CropLife Canada vice-president of plant biotechnology, said the regulatory process to commercialize crop traits is excessive. He said anti-GM activists have scared the public into thinking the technology is risky, which has led to onerous regulations. “We’re of the view … the regulations are over the top. The demands for more and more information continue,” he said. “If you’re talking about transgenics … that tends to be the tension point where regulators are asking for more and more information…. In my view, they (regulators) are being unduly influenced by non-government organizations stirring up fears in consumers’ minds. Of course, the consumers demand the politicians,

who in turn demand that the regulators ask more and more questions.” Sharratt said that is nonsense. The process to approve a GM trait hasn’t become more rigorous in Canada, she said. “The regulatory system hasn’t changed since it was first set up. We have consistently requested more rigorous regulations and that hasn’t happened,” she said. “There are no concrete changes that have been made to regulations (in Canada) besides one or two minor tinkerings.” Yarrow said hairy canola would be much easier to commercialize if was a non-transgenic trait. Yarrow said Syngenta has to comply with regulatory processes in Canada and around the globe to satisfy trade requirements. The trials and testing that are required significantly increase the cost of commercializing a GM trait, he added. A company must generate data showing the technology doesn’t harm the environment, conduct tests

demonstrating it is safe for humans and livestock and satisfy other requirements, such as proving it isn’t an allergen. Yarrow said non-transgenic crop traits are omitted from the regulatory system in certain countries. “If this hairy canola was a product of traditional plant breeding, I would estimate that the costs would be considerably less,” he said. “And in many countries it would be zero because it wouldn’t be subject to regulation.” Instead of focusing on regulations, Sharratt said Canadian farmers and the canola industry should be asking other questions about developing plant traits. “The question here really is, what happens when Agriculture Canada spends money developing a technology? Why is there no way to bring a public technology to market without involving large multinational companies?” FOR MORE STORIES ON HAIRY CANOLA, SEE THE CANOLA AND SPECIAL CROPS GUIDE INSERTED IN THIS ISSUE






Tougher food safety rules announced BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

Days before federal auditor general Michael Ferguson was poised to release a Nov. 26 report on Canadian Food Inspection Agency food recall performance, Health Canada announced tougher food safety rules. The report was expected to be critical of the agency. Last month, responsibility for CFIA was transferred from Agriculture Canada to Health Canada. Last week, health department officials went on the offensive to portray a food safety system being strengthened. On Nov. 21, health minister Rona Ambrose announced new penalties for companies that violate meat safety rules by withholding negative test results or not making required information available to inspectors. In an echo from the XL Foods E. coli outbreak and CFIA criticism of the company for its lack of timely cooperation, fines will be increased for meat companies that withhold information or records needed for investigating disease outbreaks. “Consumers want a strong and reliable food inspection system on which they can depend to provide safe food,” Ambrose said in a statement. “Introducing these new penalties demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that Canada’s stringent food safety requirements are being followed.” The previous week, the minister newly in charge of the food safety file announced a new food-borne disease surveillance operation in Calgary near the province’s feedlot and packing area as part of a new framework that stresses promotion of healthy eating, prevention of disease outbreaks and efficient food recall rules when there is a problem. “It (the Calgary surveillance site) will improve our ability to track foodborne illnesses in Canadians and trace them to their sources whether it is food, water or animals,” said Public Health Agency of Canada deputy chief public health officer Gregory Taylor. On Nov. 21, senior officials from CFIA, Health Canada and the Public Health Agency held an Ottawa briefing to assert that the move of the agency to Health will give Canada a more robust food safety and inspection system because all branches are now under one minister. Samuel Godefroy, director general of the Health Canada food directorate, said announcement of a new ‘healthy and safe food’ framework is the result of the shift in responsibility from Agriculture Canada. “ The framework offers us the opportunity to further enhance the collaboration that already existed between the various food safety partners,” he said. When pressed about the timing of the information blitz on tougher action on food safety and whether it was connected to a critical auditor general report in the works, CFIA vice-president for science and chief food safety officer of Canada Martine Dubuc would not be drawn into the debate.

A good harvest has sent delivery volumes up at grain terminals across the Prairies. |



Ritz credits open market for delivery hike Numbers compared | Critics credit bumper crop on the Prairies, despite ag minister’s contention BY BARRY WILSON OTTAWA BUREAU

As grain farmers grumble while railways struggle to move this year’s record prairie crop, agriculture minister Gerry Ritz is touting it all as vindication of the government’s marketing freedom decision. He bragged at grain industry meeting in Ottawa last week that delivery and export figures for the current crop year are better than the last year of the Canadian Wheat Board monopoly in 2011-12. And it is not because of higher volumes and a record harvest, he said. It is because farmers can move their grain quickly. Rail congestion is a result of more farmer marketing power. “It’s more access,” Ritz told reporters after a speech to a grain industry symposium sponsored by the Canada Grains Council and Grain Growers of Canada. “You’re not sitting there waiting for quota, you actually have the ability to move. There’s some stress on the system because the system is much more open than it was.” In a speech to the grain summit, the agriculture minister made a point of

arguing that while critics decried the 2011 end of the CWB single desk, current industry conditions prove their dire predictions wrong. “Today we are already into the second year of marketing freedom and despite a handful of rumblings from the full-moon crowd, the sky is still up there where it should be.” Canadian Grain Commission numbers say farmer deliveries of wheat, durum and barley were 7.6 million tonnes to the first week of November. “That’s well ahead of last year’s pace and up some 30 percent compared to the last year of the single desk.” Likewise, he said grain exports for the first two months of the crop year to Oct. 1 were 3.2 million tonnes, 14 percent higher than during “the first

two months of the final year of the monopoly.” He said the government is watching rail performance and a 2015 review of the Canada Transportation Act will be a chance for the industry to make its case for tougher performance requirements by the railways. “This year the record crop is testing the system to the max.” However, Ritz repeatedly made the comparison between the current year and the last year of the CWB monopoly. “So far this crop year, we’re pushing through more grain than we did under the last year of the single desk,” he told the conference. “In any business, that is called cash flow and it’s not a bad thing.” The minister made his comments


14 percent higher THAN IN 2011-2012

to a friendly crowd at the Ottawa conference. Grain Growers of Canada was a key government ally in ending the single desk and former GGC executive director Richard Phillips is now president of the Canada Grains Council. However, critics insist that this year’s numbers on deliveries and exporters reflect the crop size and not the marketing structure. Despite recent high prices, they argue farmers are losing because of the loss of market power the CWB held to access highest-value markets throughout the year. Ritz also committed last week to continue reform of the Canadian Grain Commission during the last two years of this government’s mandate. He did not outline the proposed changes but a major missing piece in last year’s changes that reduced mandatory CGC services and increased farmer fee-for-service costs was a change in the current Grain Commission governance structure. The next reform is expected to be a switch from the current three-commissioner system to a more corporate governance structure with a president/chief executive officer and vice-presidents.





Data: farming’s next major bumper crop Integrating information | Compiling knowledge from GPS, soil tests and plant genomics will make agriculture more sustainable BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU

In life and in industry, there are periods when a particular innovation is all the rage. In agriculture, the mid-1990s saw an era of genetically modified crops, while nutraceuticals were big in the early 2000s and biofuel was in vogue in the late 2000s. It might now be time for the era of big data and precision agriculture, considering Monsanto’s recent $930 million purchase of Climate Corp., which monitors and predicts changes in weather, says Armand Lavoie, managing director of Kirchn e r P r i v at e Cap i t a l G ro u p, a n investment bank and asset management firm. Lavoie was one of the panelists at t h e A g r i In n ov a t i o n Fo r u m, a November agriculture investment conference in Winnipeg. Angelos Dassios, partner with Paine & Partners, a California firm that invests in food and agribusiness, said Monsanto’s purchase of Climate Corp. is about selling information services to farmers and harnessing the yield potential of seeds. “Monsanto will tell you, I think with good reason, that all of this data will ultimately get us from 160 bushel per acre corn to 300 (bu.),” said Dassios. “You have to figure out where the next leg (of yield increases) is going to come from. Today, there’s a lot of potential that exists in the seed that’s already out there. It’s figuring out how to better utilize the individual acre…. What’s the exact chemical regimen you want to put in the ground? What’s the exact fertilizer? When do you want to plant?” A recent New Yorker article profiling Climate Corp. said the company’s

The era of big data and precision agriculture, and figuring out how to make them work better together, are cited as the next big opportunity in agriculture. | FILE PHOTO mission is to help people and businesses respond to the extreme weather associated with climate change. The firm provides detailed field scale weather data to help farmers make planting, spraying and harvest decisions. R o g e r B e a c h y , w h o re c e n t l y became director of the World Food Centre at the University of California, Davis, and was named executive

director of the University of Saskatchewan’s Global Institute for Food Security earlier this year, said agricultural data is much more than predictions of when rain will fall. Scientists and software developers are going to use information, such as the genomic data of plants, climate data for weather predictions and GPS data, to establish integrated farming systems. “You start to realize we are collect-

ing a lot of information. At the same time, we don’t know how to use it very well,” said Beachy, who was part of a team that developed the first genetically modified virus resistant tomato. “The ability to begin to integrate the knowledge from soils and the knowledge from genomics of plants, all the way down to the genomics of the microbiology in our gut … would imply that we need to learn how to

integrate the information … to make an agriculture that is one, more productive, secondly, more sustainable, and thirdly, more likely to provide the nutrition we require.” Ignacio Martinez, another panelist at the Agri Innovation Forum, said agri-chemical companies want to become service providers, selling information and advice to farmers. “ You see Bayer, Syngenta and Monsanto talking about offering integrated solutions to their customers,” said Martinez, a partner with Flagship Ventures, an investment firm in Massachusetts. Beachy said data and precision agriculture tools could address environmental challenges such as water quality. “How good is the soil? Does it have the right fertilizer content? If you put fertilizer in, will it stay in? Will it go into the plant or will it get run off into the watershed?” he said. “This sustainability platform (in agriculture) is going to be increasingly important. Farmers should watch for it.” With increasing attention on the environmental impacts of agriculture, Dassios said legal liability is another reason why information is likely to become a critical component of food production. “A variable rate sprayer could come in and provide an application of a particular chemical at a particular rate in a given field,” he said, speculating on future developments. “There will be an order that’s put through seamlessly … and a record for that company, ‘yes, I sprayed this particular field on this day’ … and there’s evidence and proof of that. The information leads to tools, which leads to systems. The systems, that’s the real promise and real opportunity.”


FDA ban on trans fat in food surprises industry BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

A surprise U.S. Food and Drug Administration announcement on partially hydrogenated oil should substantially boost demand for high oleic canola oil, says a developer of the product. The FDA issued a preliminary determination Nov. 7 that partially hydrogenated oils, the primary source of unhealthy trans fats, are not “generally recognized as safe” for use in food. “It essentially takes trans fats out of the food supply,” said Dave Dzisiak, commercial leader of grains and oil in North America for Dow AgroSciences, which developed Nexera canola and markets its oil under the Omega-9 Oils brand. He said the FDA announcement caught everybody in the food industry off guard and seems like a fait accompli, even though it’s a preliminary determination. “They don’t take that kind of action


lightly,” Dzisiak said. “I’ve never seen it before, so I think they’re pretty determined about what they need to do.” A 60-day comment period on the preliminary determination will collect input on the amount of time that is needed for food manufacturers to reformulate their products to remove all artificial trans fats. The FDA did not specify when the final determination would be made or how long it will take to remove the remaining trans fats from the U.S. food supply. Many food manufacturers voluntarily removed trans fats from their formulations after 2006, when the FDA started requiring that the

amount of trans fats in food products be included on labels. Trans fat intake among U.S. consumers has declined 78 percent to one gram per day in 2012 from 4.6 grams per day in 2006. They are still found in products such as microwave popcorn, frozen pizzas, margarines and coffee creamers. In the United States, a product is considered trans fat free if it has less than .5 grams of trans fats per serving. However, a bag of chips could have three servings, which would mean a consumer could be eating up to 1.47 grams of trans fats. “You might be getting actually quite a bit of trans in your diet even though everything you’re buying says trans fat free,” said Dzisiak. The soybean industry has lost 2.7 billion kilograms, or about one-third of its annual U.S. oil sales, to competing oil because of the move away from trans fats. Dzisiak said the canola industry has picked up about one billion kilograms of that business, 90 percent of

which has gone to high oleic canola oil. “That reformulation has been a great boon to the Canadian canola grower,” he said. Dzisiak estimates 900 million kilograms of trans fats are still consumed in the U.S. each year. Canadian producers would have to plant another three million acres of high oleic canola, or about double today’s acreage, if food manufacturers replaced all of that partially hydrogenated soy oil with canola oil. The American Soybean Association wants the FDA to delay implementing a final determination until 2016, when it will have ample supplies of its new high oleic soybean oil to be used in reformulations. G ro w e r s p l a n t e d f e w e r t h a n 100,000 acres of high oleic soybeans in 2013. The soybean industr y expects that to grow to 18 million acres by 2023. It hopes to be producing 770 million kilograms of high oleic soybean

oil by 2016, which would require about 3.4 million acres of the crop. “Since it will take a few years to ramp up high oleic soybean production to provide an economical alternative to food processors, we believe any final FDA determination on the matter should reflect this time frame,” ASA president Danny Murphy said in a news release. Dzisiak said the canola industry is in a better position to meet the growing demand for high oleic oil than the soybean industry. Food manufacturers are comfortable with high oleic canola oil and have already incorporated it into their reformulations. He said they know they can get a reliable supply of the product, consumers are becoming familiar with the canola brand and it has become a cost competitive ingredient because of all the new crush capacity in Western Canada. “All of those elements come into play to make us a real preferred solution in this,” said Dzisiak.

Argentina’s pea crop problems support prices Bad weather hurts crop | Big N.American crops offset benefit of small Argentinian production BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Argentina is dealing with its second straight green pea crop failure, but this one won’t likely contribute to a price spike like last year, says an analyst. “At first it looked like just the yields would be down because of the drought,” said Chuck Penner, analyst with LeftField Commodity Research. “Then they got the rain on top of that, so then that added to the quality problem.” Stat Publishing reports that a large percentage of the crop has between seven and 15 percent bleached seed due to excess late-season rains. Argentina’s absence from export markets in 2012-13 helped push green pea prices above 17 cents per pound last year, which is by far the highest price in the last 10 years. Penner said this year’s quality problem is as bad or maybe even worse than last year but he doesn’t anticipate a similar price response. Last year there was a poor green pea crop in Argentina as well as North America. “The difference this year is that you do have a good Canadian crop and a good American crop,” he said. Statistics Canada estimates that growers harvested 3.78 million tonnes of peas in 2013, 13 percent more than last year. Stat Publishing sees a record 4.08 million tonnes of peas. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is forecasting 707,657 tonnes of peas, up 43 percent from last year. Pea production statistics are not broken down by type but Penner has done his own calculations based on Statistics Canada’s June breakdown of yellow versus green seeded acreage. “My estimate is probably larger than most anybody else’s. Mine is closer to 700,000 tonnes (of green peas). Others are below 500,000 tonnes.” Greg Kostal, president of Kostal Ag Consulting, believes the crop will be 400,000 to 450,000 tonnes based on the perception that StatsCan overstated green pea seeded area in June. Even using Kostal’s conservative estimate that is still a much bigger crop than the 327,500 tonnes produced in 2012-13. Green peas are selling for around $12.50 a bushel, which is well below last year’s highs but still well above the long-term average for the crop. “Some people are predicting the price is going to crash in the next little while,” said Penner. “I think we might come in for a bit of a soft landing. I don’t see much more strength but I don’t expect it to all of the sudden collapse, either.”

Regardless of what Statistics Canada finds in its Dec. 4 final crop production report for 2013, analysts, traders and commercial canola users are already using huge numbers for the true size of the crop. “I think most people have 17 as a first digit and some are even using 18,” said Greg Kostal of Kostal Consulting, referring to the millions of tonnes of Canadian canola the trade believes was produced this year. “(The Statistics Canada number) should get bigger than the previous number, but it’s still unlikely to reveal the biggest number of the year.” Analysts contacted by The Western Producer said the true size of the 2013-14 canola crop probably ranges from 16.5 million tonnes to more than 18 million. The September StatsCan estimate was 15.96 million tonnes. Analysts also expect StatsCan to raise wheat and other crop totals, with most crops having benefitted from bigger yields than expected at the end of summer when StatsCan did its last survey. The Dec. 4 numbers, derived through a November sur vey, almost certainly reflect betterthan-previously-expected yields for most crops in most areas, analysts said. The StatsCan canola number — the most watched crop because of Canada’s dominant position as a canola exporter — is expected to underestimate the 16.5 million to 18 million-plus tonnes range because the November crop production report has a history of under reporting the ultimate size of the crop. “They’ll probably be around 16.1 (million tonnes),” said Errol Anderson of Pro Market. “The trade is thinking that there’s 16.5 (million) or more.” Brian Voth of Agri-Trend Marketing said his firm believes the crop is at least 17 million tonnes. Jon Driedger of FarmLink Marketing Solutions said 17.6 million tonnes is the estimate he is using. The huge crop will require the prairie grain elevator and rail system to work at high velocity to clear supplies from Western Canada. The analysts expect exports and domestic demand will be inadequate to avoid a year-end stocks build up that will burden the new crop year market. An even more important number than the exact size of the 2013-14 crop is the crop flow through the handlng system, a number of analysts said, because that will determine how much is left at the end of the year. Ending stocks are the pri-

Statistics Canada’s final November crop estimates are revised at the end of the crop year after export and domestic demand and final stocks are tabulated. The trend shows that the November report underestimates the size of the crop.

CANOLA APLENTY Most private traders expect the record breaking canola crop this year will easily top 17 million tonnes, about a million more than what Statistics Canada estimated in September. The next StatsCan report is scheduled for Dec. 4.

mary relative price determinant for crops. A fast clearance of crop would allow these big stockpiles to be drawn down while slow movement through the winter would leave large carry into the 2014-15 crop year. “If you add 600,000, 700,000 tonnes (to canola production), you nudge that two million tonne mark (for canola ending stocks, from the present official expectation of 1.4 million) with assumed canola shipments,” said Ken Ball of P.I. Financial. “We’ve only had carryouts that big once before in history.” Agriculture Canada, using

StatsCan’s September production estimates, already forsees heavy ending stocks. “Carry-out stocks are expected to increase significantly to exceed the 10 year average,” the department’s Outlook for Principal Field Crops said Nov. 20. Durum year end stocks would increase by 22 percent, wheat stocks by 79 percent and oats by 27 percent using the already outdated September StatsCan estimates, according to Agriculture Canada analysis. Canola ending stocks would more than double if the September production estimate and projected

demand applied for the winter. That’s why analysts are watching crop movement statistics so closely. Speedy movement is the only way of mitigating the bearish year-end stocks assumptions in the Agriculture Canada outlook. And so far, that movement is not enough to clear enough crop in time to eliminate the threat of burdensome ending stocks. “I don’t get caught up on whether the (canola crop) number is 17 (million) or 18, because the end result doesn’t really change,” said Kostal. “We’re just not moving canola fast enough.”

Frost destroys Australia’s hope for bumper canola crop Large exports still expected | Crop second largest on record with good results in W. Australia BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Frost has caused more damage than expected to Australia’s canola crop but the country is still expected to have a large export program, says an Australian trader. The crop in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria was hit with a killing frost prior to harvest. Those two states grow about 39 percent of the country’s canola. A story published in The Land, an Australian agriculture newspaper, said canola is the most disappointing crop this year in New South Wales. “The level of frost damage is probably a little worse than expected prior to harvest,” said Dan Cooper, chair of the NSW Farmers grains section.

“There are widespread reports of 20 to 30 percent downgrading of yields compared to what was expected earlier in the year.” Andrew Tout, a trader with Riverland Oilseeds, a division of GrainCorp that operates three crush plants in Australia, said most of the damage is in New South Wales, which is where Australia’s crushers are located. Damage was hit and miss with some farms escaping it altogether and others having their crops wiped out. He estimates that 20 percent of the crop was lost in New South Wales. Tout expects Australian farmers to harvest a large crop despite the frost problems in New South Wales. “Last year was a 4.2 million tonne crop. This year is looking as though it is a 3.7 to 3.8 million tonne crop,” said Tout. That is up from the Australian Oilseeds Federation’s September estimate of 3.4 million tonnes. It would be the second largest crop on record. So while crushers might have trouble sourcing seed there should be plenty available for export in the other main production states of Western Australia, Victoria and

South Australia. “All of these states are really good,” said Tout. Australia has rapidly become the world’s second largest canola exporter, ranking behind Canada and ahead of Ukraine. It competes with Canadian canola in key export markets. In June, Australia shipped its first load of canola to China since 2009 after signing a joint research agreement designed to keep blackleg disease out of China. Some analysts believe the country will ship one million tonnes of canola to China in 2013-14. Ca na d a ha s s h i p p e d 7 7 8 , 0 0 0 tonnes of canola to China through the first three months of the new crop year, up slightly from the 748,000 tonnes shipped during the same period of 2012-13. Oil content is looking fantastic in Western Australia, which grows about half of the country’s canola. The average oil content in that state has been 46 percent so far, which is well above Australia’s long-term average of 43 to 44 percent. The average oil content in New South Wales is a disappointing 42 percent.

WESTLOCK, Alta. — Getting a good grade on wheat seems to be like buying a new car, lots of negotiating required. Val Katerenchuk said when she took samples of her wheat to three grain companies she got three different grades. “I’m always fighting for the grade. It should be already decided,” said a frustrated Katerenchuk, who farms near Vegreville. Katerenchuk said it used to be easy to grow No. 1 wheat, but in the new deregulated wheat market, it seems to always be downgraded for colour. “Marketing is a lot harder this year, for me personally,” said Katerenchuk during a joint Alberta Barley and Alberta Wheat Commission meeting. “I might sleep better at night if I don’t think I’m getting ripped off. I’m tired of going to three different places and getting three different grades. You shouldn’t have to raise a stink.” Henry Vos, a Fairview, Alta., farmer, former Canadian Wheat Board director and now a director of the Alberta Wheat Commission, recommended that Katerenchuk ask the elevators to send a sample to the Canadian Grain Commission for official grading. It may help, but producers must wait for their money, said Vos. Alberta Agriculture’s Bill Chapman recommended farmers take samples as they harvest and drive them to the grain commission’s Calgary office as a matter of course. “You might have more of a bargaining chip,” said Chapman. “It may be better to be proactive and take a sample to Calgary.”

Rising exports to buoy short-term pork prices Lower feed costs | Hog sector expansion may lead to lower hog prices in 2015, says analyst BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CALGARY — The forecast for U.S. hog producers is more consolidation, more exports and higher shortterm prices, according to agriculture and livestock consultant Bruce Ginn of BMI Ag Services. Ginn told the recent Alberta Pork annual meeting that pork demand has stabilized in the United States, which means exports will likely increase slightly beyond the current 23 percent of total production. “Exports are probably going to rise next year, and Asia and China are probably going to be a big reason why,” he said. “There’s no way on God’s earth that China can produce enough of meat, food, to feed the pork consumption that they have in that country.” However, he predicted the U.S. would meet export demand with a smaller herd because of steadily increasing productivity. American hog producers have increased their productivity by three percent per year for the past 20 years. It means the U.S. herd will shrink to 5.5 million sows from 5.8 million, assuming exports increase. If they don’t, the breeding herd will shrink to 5.3 million. “We don’t need as many as we once did, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.” Ginn said hog inventories are lower than U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates issued in September, when it said slaughter would be up by one

Bruce Ginn of BMI Services told hog producers that he expects prices to remain high in 2014. | to two percent. In fact, slaughter is three or four percent lower. “A lot of this can be traced to PED (porcine epidemic diarrhea),” Ginn said. “The impact of PED is a hell of a lot more than just death losses. If you change your biosecurity in a hog operation, what does that do? It changes your pig flows.” He said the livestock and poultry industries have done a good job of adjusting to the biofuel era of higher feed prices. As well, costs may also drop because of this year’s larger crop and a recently announced reduction in the biofuel mandate, which may free up

corn that was once used for ethanol production. Even so, Ginn said the U.S. is no longer the lowest-cost producer of pork. Chile now holds the title. “The gap between the U.S. and South America has not only narrowed, but South America has surpassed the United States in the last six months,” Ginn said. As for meat that competes with pork, he said cattle producers have not adjusted as quickly to market forces exerted by ethanol production, and beef supplies will contract again next year as they retain heifers to rebuild herds. “Cattle and beef prices are near


record high,” he said. “They’re going to stay there.… Beef is going to support pork demand.” Cattle herds are rebuilding, but “pork’s going to be in a pretty advantageous situation relative to beef.” Ginn said stronger hog prices next year and lower feed costs will be conducive to hog industry expansion, with larger pork supplies in late 2014 and early 2015. He predicted a price decrease in later 2015, but that will depend on export demand and trade. Ginn criticized mandatory countryof-origin labelling in the U.S., which has caused a trade dispute between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

“MCOOL was one of the stupidest trade barriers that people ever came up with,” he said, quoting research that shows few Americans care about additional labels on meat products. His company objected to the legislation when it was first proposed, predicting that “we’re going to incur a hell of a lot of cost, piss off a bunch of people, including probably our trading partners, and it won’t make a dime for anybody in the business except for lawyers.” “I was tickled to death to see your response to MCOOL,” he said about Canada’s objections at the World Trade Organization and its plans to take retaliatory measures if necessary.


Risk factor still lurks despite bullish commodity market HEDGE ROW



emember when you couldn’t get anyone outside of farming to invest in agriculture? The prairie farming sector seemed a dreary space 19 years ago when I started working for this newspaper, with few looking to put their investment cash into developing new uses and processes for crops and meats. Sure, there were small clusters of ag biotech companies at places like the University of Saskatchewan, but apart from those cowboys, ag seemed like a loser sector. Back in 1994, farmers seemed like economic losers and farming seemed like one long story of woe and struggle, failure and despair. Repeated challenges seemed to

threaten the viability of even the best farmers in an environment of low commodity prices. Remember the “farm income crisis?” I certainly do. And I remember going to all sorts of conferences on finding “new uses,” “value-added opportunities” and “nutraceuticals,” which no one with any real money to invest actually attended. There were just a bunch of smart farmers trying to find some way to squeeze a margin out of producing crops and livestock. Fl a s h f o r wa rd 1 9 y e a r s, l o o k through my eyes and you will see a stunningly different vista: a conference hall filled with well-heeled representatives of private equity and venture capital firms spending two days talking about the golden opportunities and wonderful future of agriculture-based investments. Leading New York-based, agriculture-focused private equity fund leader Benjamin Fishman noted the difference of just the last few years. “You can see the attendees (at ag investment conferences) grow from 50 to 150 to 450, just in a few years.” Fishman said he thinks the present

A lot of outsiders … have this misperception that agriculture is just on an uninterrupted path north, and that’s simply not the case. BENJAMIN FISHMAN AGRICULTURE INVESTMENT ANALYST

boom in ag-related investment is a “secular” versus a “cyclical” development, with profitable agricultural, biotechnological and food-related development being on an “upward trajectory.” However, Fishman also warned amateurs in agriculture against cavalier attitudes about the risks. “A lot of outsiders … have this misperception that agriculture is just on an uninterrupted path north, and that’s simply not the case.” As every farmer knows, farming is a volatile profession, with gigantic swings between profits and losses that are mostly impossible to predict. Lots of investors who don’t live in

the ag arena don’t know that, but they’d better learn it if they’re going to wander into it. It was nice for me, after almost two decades of covering this industry, to hear such general bullishness about its future, even if it will be accompanied by the volatility to which we’re all accustomed. But it did make me, a permanent skeptic and contrarian, wonder if all this interest by non-ag investors isn’t in fact a cyclical rather than a secular phenomenon and a manifestation of the late stages of a bull market. This bull market has gone on so long that even people who know nothing about ag and farming are getting interested, so perhaps this rally is almost done. Even the suckers are getting drawn in. That’s certainly the feeling I have from studying past commodity rallies, and it was the sentiment of the Cereals North America conference held a couple of weeks ago. Of course, the moneymen are investing in something other than direct farming, so there’s no necessary direct connection between the base price of agricultural commodi-

ties and the value of ag-based innovations such as new food and industrial products. Cheaper crops and meat could make those even more profitable. And no doubt science will not stop finding brilliant new ways to exploit the inherent potential of many things that farmers produce. However, just as those sparsely attended conferences I covered 19 years ago were not a true representation of the future value of farming and agriculture, perhaps today’s widespread interest by outsiders in the apparently golden opportunities is similarly misrepresentative. Fishman is probably right about farming and food production having a good future. However, he was also right about volatility being a feature of the industry. Anyone who invests in agriculture, either as a farmer or a venture capitalist, needs to understand its cyclicality and its volatility. Even in this golden age of optimism, those twin devils of risk crouch just as menacingly as they did in 1994, when no one but farmers were exposed to them.






Exporters giddy over EU deal

U.S. cattle placements rise as corn costs slide


From east and west, export-oriented farm representatives trooped before the House of Commons agriculture committee last week extolling the potential benefits of a Canadian trade deal with the European Union. Southwestern Alberta grain producer and Barley Council of Canada chair Brian Otto told MPs Nov. 21 the deal is a huge opportunity for his industry. Current EU tariffs of up to $120 per tonne of barley have limited the market. The tariffs will disappear and a door will open for increased raw feed and processed malt barley products to Europe, he said. Bu t t h e ma i n b e n e f i t w i l l b e through increased feed sales to Canadian cattle and hog producers as they gain greater access for meat exports. Otto repeated earlier predictions that the deal could eventually be worth millions of dollars to the barley sector and $1 billion to the livestock sector. The end of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk allows the industry to capitalize on the opportunity, he said. “This deal coincides with new marketing changes for barley in western


Canada,” Otto told MPs. “CETA (the Canada-EU deal) is the next step in solidifying the long-term profitability and sustainability of the entire Canadian barley value chain.” Lisa Skierka, general manager of the Alberta Barley Commission and president of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance, said the deal could eventually be worth $1.5 billion in increased sales for Canada’s agriculture sector. And Grain Farmers of Ontario chief executive officer Barry Senft, a former Saskatchewan Wheat Pool executive, told MPs that the deal should lead to significant increases in sales for Ontario’s grain farmers, including creation of a Canada-EU working group on dealing with genetically engineered products such as Ontario corn and soybeans. “This open dialogue and collaboration on the issue of genetically modified grains is an exceptional

step forward in our relationship with the EU,” he said. “Looking forward, we see immense opportunity for Ontario’s grain farmers with the implementation of CETA,” Senft said. Many details about the trade deal announced in principle in early November must be worked out. The political ratification required before implementation is at least two years away. It must be approved by all 27 EU members as well as by Parliament in Canada. Ottawa has promised the provinces they also will have to sign on before it is ratified. The major Canadian opposition has come from the dairy industry. European cheese imports into Canada will double. The government has promised compensation if there is proven loss, and argues the fundamental principles of the supply management system are preserved. Last week, Quebec New Democrat MP and deputy agriculture critic Ruth Ellen Brosseau said in an interview that dairy farmers in her rural Quebec riding remain uneasy about the deal. “I think they have not been convinced but they are willing to wait for the details and to see where the (compensation) money is,” she said.

Feedlot supply down six percent | Cattle placements still small by historical standard CHICAGO, Ill. (Reuters) — The number of cattle placed in U.S. feedlots in October increased 10 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Nov. 22. The increase was due to less-costly corn that improved feedlot profits and allowed feedlots to buy young, or feeder cattle, to fatten for slaughter, analysts said. Feeder cattle are scarce as years of drought hurt U.S. crops and pastures, causing ranchers to shrink the herd to its smallest in more than 60 years. While the USDA reported October placements at 2.394 million head, up 10 percent from 2.180 million a year earlier, the 2012 placements were the smallest for that month since 1996. As a result, this year’s placements are still historically small. Analysts, on average, expected a 8.7 percent increase. Record-high slaughter cattle prices last month also attracted more lightweight animals to feeding pens, said Livestock Marketing Information Center director Jim Robb. “Feedlots being profitable last

month didn’t hurt,” he said. The increase in October placements suggests that the industry has returned to a more normal pattern, said Robb. More cattle tend to enter feedlots this time of year as pastures deteriorate and before winter weather sets in, he said. “Last year ’s placements were drought influenced and the lightweight animals came well before October. This is one of the first months where demand from feedlots are pulling animals into feedyards,” Robb said. Rich Nelson, Allendale Inc. chief strategist, keyed in on the weight category that showed cattle more than 800 pounds were up four percent year-over-year. Since those cattle will not be market-ready until February or March, it suggests there may be extremely tight cattle numbers early in the first quarter of 2014. As a result, cattle and beef prices may remain at or near record highs, he said.

fall while volumes picked up. Choice and Select were down $3.98 per cwt. and $2.09 per cwt. respectively, narrowing the Choice-Select spread to $12.15 per cwt. compared to $14.04 per cwt. two weeks ago and $20.52 last year. Trim values moved sharply lower on moderate demand and heavy offerings by the end of the week with 50 percent trims down $18.18 per cwt. With last minute procurement of turkey and ham ending for the Nov. 28 U.S. Thanksgiving, the beef market should have a steadier tone this week.

Weekly Canadian cut-out values to Nov. 15 rose. AAA rose $2.68 to $199.60 per cwt. and AA rose $1.64 to $191.24 per cwt. Montreal wholesale price for delivery this week was steady at $225-$226 per cwt.

CANFAX REPORT FED PRICE SLIPS The modest fed show list last week traded with little fanfare and weighted average prices eased slightly lower. Fed steers averaged $124.66 per hundredweight, down 44 cents and heifers averaged $124.08, down 27 cents. Dressed trade on Nov. 20-21 was steady with the previous week and most sales were from $208-$208.50 per cwt. at the feedlot. Terminal implant weight sorts have been marketed during the past couple of weeks and generally are softer with limited days on feed The fed market lacked local buyer comp e t i t io n a n d U. S. p ac k e r s remained on the sidelines, apparently sorting out revised country-of-origin labelling compliance details. Sale volume dropped 40 percent to 8,633 head. That was 37 percent smaller than the same week last year. The Alberta cash-to-futures basis narrowed by $1.36 to -$12.70. Weekly Western Canadian fed slaughter to Nov. 16 rose two percent to 29,693 head and year-to-date volume was dow n five percent to 1,444,169 head. Weekly fed cattle exports to Nov. 9 were almost eight percent larger than the previous week at 6,716 head. Year-to-date fed exports of 313,095 head were 15 percent smaller than the same week last year. Beef demand beyond American Thanksgiving has a less bullish tone and packers are losing the battle to prop up cutouts and hold margins. Many feedlots are exclusively fulfilling contract obligations and will not have market-ready cash cattle until the new year. Long fed cattle are in tight supply and could receive a premium this week if available for immediate delivery.

However, generally it will be hard for prices to rally despite a modest show list and a small cash offering.

LARGE COW SLAUGHTER Western Canadian weekly cow slaughter volumes were the largest reported this year as more than 10,000 cows were processed. D1, D2 cows established new annual lows, and it marks the first time this year that values slipped below $70 per cwt. D1, D2s ranged $65-$74 to average $69.20 and D3s ranged $58-$66 to average $62.50. Railgrade cows were $130-$139 per cwt. Bred cow prices are trending below year-ago levels and it appears there is about a 10 to 20 percent fallout at some of these bred sales, which has helped cushion packer inventory. Non-fed exports to the U.S. should remain elevated as D1, D2 cows are trading at a $10-$12 discount to U.S. utility cows. With non-fed prices near the bottom for the year, speculators have entered the market.

FEEDER BASIS WEAK Choice packages of feeder cattle traded steady while a weaker undertone was reported on second and third cut feeders. Manitoba 400-800 pound steers and heifers traded steady, to as much as $1 higher than Alberta values. The traditional movement of feeders from Manitoba into Alberta and Saskatchewan has been countered by strong eastern and U.S. demand. Year over year, the largest price increases have been reported in Ontario as all classes are trading $11$23 higher.

Even though Alberta 850 lb. steers are trading above last year, basis levels on cash-to-cash and cash-tofutures have been disappointing. Weak basis levels can generally be attributed to COOL. Basis levels for 850 lb. cash-tofutures weakened to close at -33.25, the weakest since July 2005. Weekly Alberta auction volumes fell 25 percent to 67,288 head. Weekly Canadian feeder exports to Nov. 9 rose 40 percent to 9,614 head.

WP LIVESTOCK REPORT HOG PRICE FALLS Hog prices continued to fall as cooler weather and new-crop corn allowed animals to quickly gain weight while adding more pork tonnage to the retail sector. Average hog weights in the IowaSouthern Minnesota region for the week ended Nov. 16 posted a new record high of 281.2 pounds, the third record in as many weeks, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. Supplies were plentiful in most areas of the Midwest as producers hurried hogs to market to avoid lower prices as the Thanksgiving Day holiday approached. Iowa-Southern Minnesota hogs delivered to packing plants were $58 per hundredweight on Nov. 22, down from $60 on Nov. 15. The estimated pork cut-out value was $89.68 per cwt. Nov. 22, down from $91.97 Nov. 15. Estimated weekly U.S. slaughter to

Nov. 22 was 2.345 million, steady from the same time last week. The same week last year was 2.066 million.

BISON STEADY The Canadian Bison Association said Grade A bulls in the desirable weight range averaged $3.50 Cdn per pound hot hanging weight with sales to $3.70. Grade A heifers sold at $3.45 with sales to $3.55. Animals older than 30 months and those outside the desirable buyer specifications may be discounted. In live markets, in the first sale of the year quality yearling bulls sold at slightly more than $2 per lb. liveweight and quality heifers sold at about $2.

LAMBS, SHEEP HIGHER Beaver Hill Auction in Tofield, Alta., reported 1,122 sheep and 152 goats sold Nov. 18.

Wool lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $114-$143 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $124-$141, 86 to 105 lb. were $116$135 and 106 lb. and heavier were $115-$128. Wool rams were $40-$90 per cwt. Cull ewes were $28-$72 and bred ewes were $70-$100 per head. Hair lambs lighter than 70 lb. were $110-$129 per cwt., 70 to 85 lb. were $118-$138, 86 to 105 lb. were $111$124 and 106 lb. and heavier were $100-$117. Hair rams were $30-$75 per cwt. Cull ewes were $25-$60. Good kid goats lighter than 50 lb. were $160-$225. Those heavier than 50 lb. were $170-$235 per cwt. Nannies were $50-$90 per cwt. Billies were $100$135. Ontario Stockyards Inc. reported 1,038 sheep and lambs and 70 goats traded Nov. 18. All classes of lambs traded actively at higher prices. Sheep sold $3-$5 higher. Goats traded steady.

Gov’t should play role when valuable research ignored


bout nine years ago, researchers at the Agriculture Canada research station in Saskatoon began work on the oddly named, genetically modified plant called hairy canola. Today, after all that time and plenty of investment, this new line is still sitting on the shelf. Hairy canola is particularly promising for a number of reasons, primarily that flea beetles hate it. The flea beetle, as canola growers know, is a primary threat to their yields. The tiny hairs covering the seedling are obnoxious to the beetles, which can’t find enough bare surface area to feed on the plant. The enormous upside to hairy canola, then, is that pesticides as seed treatments would be either much less or not at all necessary to combatting flea beetles. From both input cost and environmental perspectives, this hairy trait could be highly beneficial, because much of the canola seed planted in Western Canada now must be coated with insecticide. Hairy canola could reduce or remove the use of neonicotinoids, seed treatments suspected of contributing to bee deaths. There is also some evidence that neonics are not working as well as they once did in fighting off the flea beetle, which seems to have evolved enough to resist the pesticide. If that proves to be the case, what will growers’ next tool be in battling flea beetles? If it is not hairy canola, it will be another pesticide. Yet the commercialization of hairy canola is in limbo, and the reasons are complex. First of all, new varieties of canola containing GM traits are expensive to take to market. Estimates range from $40 million to well over $100 million, in large part because of a challenging regulatory system. No one wants new varieties to sail through a regulatory process. But there are differing views on whether the regulatory system has been made more difficult because of public outcry against GM foods.

Most industry players would agree that, good or bad, regulations are complex and expensive and the process is lengthy. Because the costs are daunting, seed companies are much less excited about commercializing such beneficial varieties if there is not another revenue stream to help them recoup their investment. In the early days of GM canola development, pesticide resistance was the dominant push, allowing companies to sell the pesticide along with the seed. Hairy canola does not offer that return. So, where will the technology go? It has been funded by SaskCanola, the Alberta Canola Producers, the Canola Council of Canada, and others. Has all of that investment gone to waste? It’s possible. Pat Flaten, research manager at SaskCanola, is of the view that this trait may well not be commercialized because crop science companies are interested in “blockbuster” traits. “The seed industry has said that only transformative transgenic approaches will really be considered,” Flaten said. That leaves government, perhaps in concert with producer groups, to manage the commercialization problem. As it stands, there is no well-travelled path to commercialization without the big seed companies. But if they are not interested, and the trait is highly beneficial to the economy, consumers and farmers, there should be a role for government to assist and expedite its trip to market. Indeed, it appears that hairy canola research must start all over again, using traditional breeding methods instead of genetic modification to avoid the novel trait process. All those years of researchers’ time and all that money, some of it farmers’ money, will have been wasted. The process is deeply flawed, and it’s on the government — repository of policy and regulation — to fix it.


The basic problem is without the farmer-controlled single desk wheat board nobody is co-ordinating grain sales, transportation logistics, and the efficient use of port terminal facilities.

So far this crop year, we’re pushing through more grain than we did under the last year of the (Canadian Wheat Board) single desk. In any business, that is called cash flow and it’s not a bad thing.

Debate over GM food safety will continue despite concern over food security NATIONAL VIEW



few weeks ago, the interesting and edgy Calgary-based CBC Radio program The 180 hosted a debate about genetically modified foods. It was predictable. The springboard was plans to market, perhaps as early as 2014, the Arctic apple, a GM non-browning variety. Greenpeace and other GM opponents were up in arms, holding

public meetings in Western Canada to fuel the opposition. On the program, Greenpeace activist Éric Darier argued that the world does not need GM. It is good for multinational companies but not for people, and scientists are divided on its safety. Local small-scale farmers can feed the world with more nutritious real food. Monsanto Canada’s Trish Jordan was there to say GM is good for farmers, necessary to feed a growing world and it is safe. The overwhelming majority of scientists say so. There was no middle ground, as there almost never is in this political, emotional and high-stakes debate. The fundamental differences remain the same whether the battleground is safety, corporate control of

seed, GM labelling or whether the world’s peasant and small-scale farmers can feed nine billion people without access to modern technology, including biotechnology. It is one of the more fascinating modern agricultural/food sector debates, even if it is maddeningly circular. A new beachhead for the debate looms just over the horizon — international and Canadian efforts to develop international rules that would allow some inadvertent presence of GM traces in food imports even in countries opposed to GM. Few countries have labelling laws that would require a “may contain GM” label and even if they did, what would it mean? An international push is on, with

Canada among the leaders, to have the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Trade Organization get member countries involved in the debate. Agriculture minister Gerry Ritz is convinced it will happen. “I’m optimistic that the world is coming to the realization that if you are going to have food security and sustainability you are going to have to look at biotechnology and that means a good low-level presence policy,” he has said. For the International Grain Trade Coalition and Canadian secretary Dennis Stephens, it is all about not disrupting trade. With hundreds of GM products being shipped around the world in vessels, it is almost impossible to avoid some minor cross-contamina-

tion and under current rules that can stop a vessel from unloading. So far in the broader GM discourse, the low level presence issue generally is under the political radar. But if the debate gains legs and progress is made, expect the critics to jump on the idea that consumers could be subjected to GM “contaminated” imported food without their knowledge, just so exporters don’t lose markets and money. Currently, it largely is a debate between countries and traders. In 10 years, it could be the next nonbrowning apple debate on a much broader scale. And average consumers still will gravitate to organic shelves in the stores while picking up some GMbased canola, corn or soybean products on the way home.





Can world afford luxury of organics?

It all happened on way to Agritechnica



umerous articles and reports that compare the production of organic and conventional agriculture have concluded that on average, organic crop agriculture produces 25 to 30 percent less per acre. The most recent examination of the subject is a meta-analysis by Seufert et al. (2012), which concluded that organic yields are 34 percent lower when organic and conventional agriculture are most comparable. Innovative methods and techniques are required to feed the world’s population, which is expected to increase by two billion people over the next 20 years. The time has come to question the merits of continuing with an agricultural production system that is critically inefficient. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization reported in 2010 that annual crop yield increases of two percent are needed to sustain the planet’s existing population. Current yield increases are 1.2 percent and have slowed considerably over the past 40 years. A 2006 report by the FAO estimated that 845 million people lacked food security that year. It anticipated a onethird decline by 2015 to slightly less than 600 million. The stark reality is that this figure has grown by more than 40 percent and now stands at approximately 1.2 billion people. Consumers of organic food and products already pay price premiums for their consumption habits, and with organic products clearly labelled, discerning consumers have choices regarding food purchase.

Organic yields are about 30 percent less than conventional agriculture, thereby producing less food for distribution to those in need, says the author. | FILE PHOTO However, it is an extravagance available only to those living in affluent communities of industrialized nations while 20 percent of the world’s population faces a lack of food on a daily basis. Some have argued that organically produced food is more nutritious and therefore important for food security. In a meta-analysis of nutritional content of organic and conventional crops and meat from 1958-2008, Dangour et al. (2009) reviewed 162 nutritional publications and concluded that no nutritional differences existed between products produced conventionally and organically. Others have convincingly argued that the challenge is not one of production, but rather one of distribu-

tion. There is considerable merit to this argument, but the political conundrums facing many of the most food insecure nations have to be viewed as a constant to the distribution challenge, rather than something that is going to miraculously end in the next 20 years. If more food is produced per acre, more food can be distributed and more food will reach those facing food insecurity. There is no other sector of our economy in which 30 percent inefficiency would be viewed as acceptable. Why is it tolerable in food production? As more resources are directed toward research focusing on yield increases for commodity agriculture, we also witness growing demands for

organic products. Given that organic production is a process and does not start with an organically developed product, it would seem that agriculture is simultaneously facing polar opposite demands. Crop variety researchers are tasked with increasing yields, while consumers increasingly demand the production of crops that yield 30 percent less. This is not a sustainable road for agriculture. As a leading industrial nation with an abundance of food production, Canada needs to be a global leader in investing in innovations and technology that reduce food insecurities. Canadian politicians need to continue to lobby foreign governments to reduce trade barriers and improve food distribution networks. Crop scientists need to be adequately funded to undertake their research on improving, among other traits, yield increases. Producers need to ensure that they are optimizing the production of all commodities. The consumption of organically produced food is a luxury that is only affordable to the upper- and middleincome classes within industrial societies. Yet, consumers are increasingly being asked to act locally and think globally. In endeavoring to follow this motto, consumers should increasingly question the global value of consuming inefficiently produced organic products.

Here come soybeans and corn, goodbye to …? HURSH ON AG



f, as projected, corn and soybeans become major crops in Western Canada over the next decade, there will be wide-ranging ramifications. Companies such as Monsanto and DuPont Pioneer are investing heavily, believing new shorter season varieties will make this region the new frontier for the crops that already dominate production in the United States and Eastern Canada. The anticipated six to eight million acres of soybeans and eight to 10 million acres of corn will have to displace other prairie crops, so what will the losers be? Although the increase in Manitoba soybean acreage appears to have

come largely at the expense of canola, Monsanto does not believe that will be the primary substitution. Not much point in Monsanto spending millions of dollars on corn just to have it displace the company’s most profitable crop. Instead, soybeans are expected to take a bite out of pea and lentil acreage. As corn increases, other cereal crops are expected to drop. Speaking to the recent Canada Grains Council meeting in Ottawa, William Wilson from the University of North Dakota said corn in his state has been a barley killer. Feed barley has been abandoned and malting barley has been chased further west. Wheat and durum acreage is also down dramatically. The trends in North Dakota could be a template for what will happen in the higher heat unit regions of Western Canada. Wilson notes that all crops have been profitable in recent years, but growers want to minimize risk. Yield statistics show twice the variability in wheat yields as compared to North

Dakota corn yields. In fact, both corn and soybeans are often referred to as idiot proof. According to Wilson’s numbers, corn has been the most profitable crop in the state by a wide margin, followed by soybeans in the number two position. With the increased profitability, North Dakota land prices have increased more rapidly than other states. What about crops where western Canadian production dominates world exports and where there are no obvious substitutes? This includes durum, flax, lentils, mustard and canaryseed. In the face of a corn and soybean surge, either those acres will go to other countries or the marketplace will have to pay to retain acres here. If corn does see the expected acreage explosion in the years to come, more grain storage will be needed. This will probably occur on farm as well as at commercial facilities. Corn yields are expected to average 80 to 110 bushels per acre — twice that of wheat and one and a half times that of barley.

For transportation logistics, corn is a curse and a blessing. There’s a lot more volume to move, but there are far fewer segregations. Less segregation also applies to soybeans. Soybean acreage has advanced rapidly in Manitoba and the southeastern corner of Saskatchewan with experimentation in many other regions. The corn expansion is more tentative. Maybe long-term projections will be correct. Maybe we will mirror what has happened in North Dakota. However, in the short term, the allure of corn may take a holiday due to dropping prices. Corn at $7 a bu. is exciting. Corn at $4, not so much. And from that $4, you typically need to subtract 30 or 40 cents for drying. In addition to grain drying access, you need specialized seeding and harvesting equipment. It’s a lot bigger commitment than just throwing another seed in the ground. Producers are curious, but many remain skeptical. Kevin Hursh is an agricultural journalist, consultant and farmer. He can be reached by e-mail at




nforgettable. In a word, I’d have to say that’s the one that best sums up my trip to Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany, two weeks ago. The sheer scale of the show — 24 buildings on a 100-acre site, each packed with the latest in ag machinery, 450,000 visitors, 26 kilometres of carpet, 120,000 schnitzel served — is nearly impossible to imagine until you’ve seen it for yourself. WP managing editor Mike Raine, a veteran of three previous Agritechnica shows, attempted to prepare me for what we were about to encounter this year. It helped that we took a rather circuitous route to the show, one that afforded us ample time to strategize on just how we would go about covering this monster. One of our stops was London’s Heathrow airport, one of the busiest airports in the world where 84 different airlines move more than 200,000 people through here on a daily basis. It was in Heathrow’s Terminal 1 where we found ourselves having breakfast Sunday morning at the Tin Goose pub. A nearby TV showed the Queen laying a wreath at a cenotaph as part of the United Kingdom’s official Remembrance Day ceremonies. Shortly before 11 a.m., a female voice came over the Terminal’s PA system to tell us there would be two minutes of silence beginning at 11 a.m. When the two minutes of silence began I was amazed to see virtually everyone come to a complete stop. Hundreds of people stopped talking, the men at the bar were up off their stools, and some nearby shoppers even stood with their heads bowed. You could hear a pin drop. I hadn’t even yet made it to Germany and already I was in awe of what I was seeing. That sense of awe would continue throughout the week as I explored all Agritechnica had to offer, including at least a couple of those 120,000 schnitzel. There were tractors mounted on the walls, sprayers half the width of a football field, and equipment of every conceivable type on stages that would rival those of the Rolling Stones in complexity. But as incredible as all that spanking new machinery was my experience at Heathrow was every bit its equal. Seems everywhere I went in Europe something spectacular was in store. All of it unforgettable.

With the elections for the new wheat and barley commissions looming, I decided to give all of the candidate biographies a read. I noticed an interesting contrast. There are many candidates for both commissions that are very clear about where they stand on the important issues of maintaining public plant breeding and ensuring farmers maintain the right to save their seed. Others fail to mention these crucial points and cloud their positions with ambiguous language and talking points. These are farmer organizations, and those elected to serve should be

putting farmers first. Some candidates seem very comfortable about cozying up further to the agri-business giants that make their billions off of farmers. Others are clear in saying that farmers must come ahead of industry. The privatization of Canadian agriculture is almost complete. We have no orderly marketing, no publicly owned facilities and the federal government has gutted the public plant breeding system. These elections are a chance for those farmers who recognize the value of publicly funded research to make their voices heard and work to stop the destruction of a 100 year legacy of public plant breeding. Do not let wheat and barley seed go

the route of canola. Do not elect candidates that would like to see us paying exorbitant prices for seed that we cannot save to plant again the year after. Read the candidate biographies closely and ensure that your votes go to candidates who will work to put farmers before industry.

To the Editor:

The rice in the photo with Patrick Moore’s opinion on genetically modified rice looks, to me, to be highly refined. I would think that anyone consuming it would not be getting any nutrients except maybe the claim of vitamin A in the GM. I am on the side of Greenpeace and the billions of others who know we do not need this technology. With the release of this rice, how long will it take to contaminate the over 7,000 varieties with GM genes? Then who owns them? We all know there are other ways to help the undernourished of the world.

FARMER CONTROL? To the Editor:

NEXT GENERATION PRECISION The next generation C2 Contour features parallel linkage for ultra-precise seed and fertilizer placement. Each opener follows the contour of the ground while adjustable packing pressure lets you pull through damp spots. The reclined shank design provides superior trash clearance and lower draft requirements. That means lower horsepower needs and better fuel savings. To learn precisely how the C2 Contour can improve your yield, talk to your Morris dealer.

Next month farmers of Saskatchewan will be electing people to represent them on the new provincial wheat and barley commissions. These commissions will be responsible for deciding who gets the money they collect from wheat and barley sales for plant breeding and market development. The government claims these commissions will put farmers in control now that they have killed the farmer controlled single desk wheat board. So it is really strange that the government-appointed chairpeople, Cherilyn Nagel Jolly and Bill Cooper, thought it was necessary to appoint a permanent executive director for both the barley and wheat groups before the elections. Didn’t they think the newly elected directors could select their own executive director? Is the government putting their people in management now so that farmers are steered into giving wheat and barley research money to the agro-chemical seed companies? Is this a backdoor way of both subsidizing these giant companies and making sure farmers cannot reuse their own saved seed? As we have seen with canola, it would be a great way to increase farmers’ costs and maximize corporate profits. It was also interesting that the person the government appointees picked came from the grain trade and was not from any the farm groups. Looks like they think contact with the industry is more important than contact with the farmers who supply the money. It will be interesting to see if these barley and wheat groups will really be under farmer control or simply be the puppets of the government and chemical companies. Kyle Korneychuk, Pelly, Sask.

NOTHING REALLY CHANGES To the Editor: We have just mourned another Armistice Day, when so many wonderful, energetic, young people died. After the end of the Second World War, a huge number of the enemy emigrated to Canada and became excellent citizens. On looking back we discovered these were people just like ourselves.

OPINION Therefore, it raises the question why the people who start wars, but never pay with their own lives, should continue to remain in positions of power. It is obvious that this system is seriously flawed when history keeps on repeating itself in this way. Too many young people die needlessly, and there does not appear to be any light at the end of the tunnel because nothing really changes. Jean H. Sloan, Lloydminster, Sask.

BLIND SCIENTIFIC FAITH To the Editor: I find interesting the recent articles and editorials in The Western Producer defending “science-based” advancements in farming and scorning consumer distrust of some farm

products and practices. If science is to be blindly followed, what about DDT, thalidomide, athletic steroids, etc.? Would the champions of scientific advancement give growth hormones to their children to help them grow faster and routine injections of antibiotics just in case they should be exposed to infection or disease? In case you suspect me to be a member of some rabid animal rights group, rest assured, for I am a farmer. My beef cattle are grass fed. I work hard to raise healthy happy animals in a natural environment. I am not blindly organic. I do use antibiotics to treat a sick animal. I do immunize against common bovine diseases: blackleg, BRVD as examples. I do consult veterinarians and use science to help me on my farm. But I do not eat beef that is routinely fed “safe” drugs, like growth hormones and prophylactic antibiotics

because we are what we eat. I hate to think that the pro-science, pro-chemical stance taken by editors and writers for The Western Producer is meant to promote the best interests of agri-businesses and chemical companies. It is small wonder there is a growing number of skeptical consumers out there. How can farmers be seen in a positive light by the public, given some of the inhumane and dangerous practices being followed on the basis of “scientific” evidence? Think cages for laying hens, gestation stalls for sows, routine hormone and antibiotic injections for cattle. There are countless people who know that industrial food is not necessarily good food, nor is it necessarily safe food, as science may well discover, years from now. Norma Somers, Birnie, Man.

Grandmother’s blessing SPIRITUAL VIGNETTES



ow dangerous is it to travel to distant places? What happens if you get into trouble? These were questions that caused nightmares for an elderly grandmother when her granddaughter announced she was going to travel overseas. She’d always dreamed about seeing Asia. People of Grandmother’s age can become quite adept at intimidation. In no way was she going to allow such a foolhardy venture. Granny and I had a chat — not so I could remind her how much international travel enriched my life when I was younger but so we could think of matters closer to home. Here were two people who loved each other dearly. One had dreams of adventure. The other was a wise respected elder who had seen and heard dark stories of misadventure. “You have every right to tell Jannie about your worries,” I assured her. “You need to pass on the cautionary wisdom you’ve accumulated since you and your husband dared to start farming and raising a family on nothing but a hope and a dream.” She recalled a couple of the stories of those times with obvious pride. “But after you express your concerns, do give her your blessing. And keep her in your prayers. It makes all the difference.” Should anything have happened to Granny while Jannie was away, if she didn’t have that blessing, she might carry feelings of guilt and regret the rest of her life. But if the separation was done with love and care, precious memories would prevail. The preacher in Ecclesiastes had travelled widely. Now he passed on that accumulated wisdom: “There’s a time for life and a time for death” … for war and for peace. Be happy and trust yourself in God’s hands.

Public may warm to Simplot’s GM potato

Spud breeders, growers eager to increase consumption

Approval sought in U.S. | Consumers were opposed to Monsanto’s attempt to market Nature Mark GM spud STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

There are no genetically modified potatoes in Canada, and there may not be any for some time. “Someday there may be, but that is entirely going to depend on what the consumer wants,” said Terence Hochstein, executive director of Potato Growers of Alberta. Simplot in the United States is seeking approval for a GM potato with better shelf life and a low level of acrylamide, a naturally occurring chemical in processed food thought to be

carcinogenic. However, Canada will make its own decision to register Simplot’s Innate variety, even if it is accepted in the U.S., Hochstein said after the potato growers annual meeting in Calgary Nov. 21. A dozen years of consumer backlash forced Monsanto to abandon its GM potato, the Nature Mark, but Simplot consultant Joe Guenthner thinks the new version might have a chance. He said the Monsanto potato probably raised the ire of consumer activists because it involved transferring genes from another species to make

it resistant to the Colorado potato beetle. The Simplot potato contains genes from other plants in the potato family. The Monsanto potatoes made it to market but everything fell apart when activist groups pressured fast food corporations like Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonald’s not to use them in their fries. “They weren’t concerned about the GM canola oil they were fried in, just the potatoes,” said Guenthner, a retired University of Idado agricultural economist. “They were smart in picking that target because french

fries are the second biggest money maker in fast food restaurants. Soft drinks are No. 1.” Simplot’s variety does not bruise easily or turn black after it is peeled and exposed to air. Guenthner said the industry is always looking for ways to interest people in eating more potatoes, and consumers may consider buying a product like this if its convenience factors were promoted. It could be sold in a package already peeled and diced with a longer shelf life than current products that are preserved with sulfites.

Breeders develop colourful varieties and unusual shapes to entice consumers With dramatic names like Vivaldi and Orchestra, potato lovers have a greater choice of spuds than ever before. Modern potatoes come in more colours than a rainbow with red, white, yellow, blue and pink varieties and an assortment of shapes and sizes. Alberta grows 35 to 40 mainstay varieties, but plant breeders are continually coming out with new ones to entice consumers to eat more. “They are looking for a new red or yellow so new varieties are coming on line all the time,” said Terence Hochstein, executive director of Potato Growers of Alberta. Production varies from year to year depending on the growing season and markets. This year, the Alberta fresh market potato acreage grew by 10 percent to 2,600 acres, but the processing sector required less than normal at 3,500 acres. “Ou r p ro d u c t i o n p ro c e s s i n g industry is completely in correlation to the demand of the North American market,” he said after the potato growers annual meeting in Calgary Nov. 21. Seed potatoes are another large part of the business with 9,700 acres planted, a 200 acre increase from last year. Most of these are grown in the northern half of the province. Alberta is Canada’s third largest potato producing province next to Prince Edward Island and Manitoba. Last year, it reported $160 to $170 million in farmgate sales, but the economic spinoffs are more than $1 billion. However, the province is not selfsufficient in potatoes and has to import mostly from Manitoba and British Columbia. “The Albertans consume the equivalent of 6,500 acres per year and we produce 2,600. We definitely could produce more,” he said. Growing fresh and processing potatoes involve different procedures and economic risks. Processors offer contracts and set prices to give producers more security rather than depending on the vagaries of the fresh market. Alberta processors include FritoLay, owned by Pepsi Co., Old Dutch, McCains, Lamb Weston and Cavendish, which took over a Maple Leaf plant in Lethbridge to make fries. There are also half a dozen fresh packers. Encouraging consumers to eat more potatoes is a big challenge for the industry. “There is that perception out there that a potato is bad for you, and it is one of the healthiest vegetables there is. It is high in potassium and a good source of fibre,” he said. Growers are considering a national marketing and promotion agency to promote potatoes and their health benefits.





Petitions hold up Monsanto’s dicamba tolerant soybeans Delayed until 2015 | The company is seeking approval for Banvel II herbicide and hopes for ‘a successful outcome in 2014 sometime’ BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canadian growers will have to wait another year to get their hands on dicamba tolerant soybeans. “This one is running a little longer than we would have anticipated,” said Mark Lawton, technology development lead for Monsanto Canada said Nov. 25. The company issued a news release on Jan. 24 saying it had received full regulatory approval in Canada for Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans, which are tolerant to both glyphosate and dicamba herbicides.

The release stated that pending key global regulatory approvals, the crop would be commercialized in 2014. But the approval process has been slower than anticipated in China and the United States. Groups that don’t want the trait commercialized successfully petitioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture to conduct lengthy environmental impact statements on Monsanto’s dicamba tolerant trait and Dow AgroSciences’ 2,4-D tolerant trait. There have also been regulatory delays in China, which is the world’s top soybean destination.

Lawton said the new timeline for commercialization is 2015. While the trait has been approved in Canada, the chemistry has not. Monsanto is seeking approval for a new use for Banvel II herbicide on soybeans. “We’re on track to have a successful outcome we believe in 2014 sometime,” he said. The company will follow up the Banvel application by seeking regulatory approval for a new lower-volatility formulation of dicamba. Lawton said the Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans will give growers another mode of action to

control weeds starting in 2015. Dicamba offers residual weed control when applied in the spring. “We’ve seen a nice two-plus bushel benefit from that pre-emergent application of dicamba with Roundup,” said Lawton. It gives growers another option for hard-to-control weeds like wild buckwheat and a way to manage the four glyphosate resistant weeds found in Canada, which are kochia, giant ragweed, common ragweed and Canada fleabane. Lawton said the dicamba trait will be available in soybean varieties with a nice mix of maturities suitable for

Eastern Canada by 2015. It will take up to two years longer to get the trait in varieties suitable for Western Canada. “We think the Xtend crop system with dicamba and Roundup would be of high interest to farmers in the west as well, so stay tuned,” he said. Monsanto is working on introducing the dicamba trait into canola as well. “We did have it in the country this past year in confined trials. It looked excellent,” said Lawton. “We’re probably looking into the early part of the next decade before that’s in a commercial field of view.”


Man. forms Churchill port development agency

Questions about the weather?


The Manitoba government is forming a new agency to develop and diversify the Port of Churchill, but it still opposes shipping oil through the Hudson Bay port. In November, the province introduced legislation to create Churchill Arctic Port Canada Inc., a non-profit with a mandate of stimulating economic activity at the port. “The new corporation will attract and co-ordinate investment linked to the Port of Churchill, support research, planning and partnership development,” said Manitoba transportation minister Steve Ashton. While the province is promoting the export of resources through the port, it still opposes a plan to export petroleum via Churchill. Earlier this year OmniTRAX, a U.S. company that owns the port and the railway that serves it, announced plans to ship Alberta oil by rail through the Port of Churchill. “We have a number of companies that are very interested,” said Brad Chase, OmniTRAX Canada president in April. “The companies … are producers, mid marketers who trade the product, and refiners….” In September, Manitoba’s transportation minister Steve Ashton said it’s too “risky” to ship oil across northern Manitoba because a rail spill could harm the boreal forest or tundra ecosystems in the region. Despite provincial and environmental group objections, OmniTRAX is pushing ahead on a pilot project to ship light, sweet crude through Churchill in 2014. Churchill Arctic Port Canada Inc., the new agency, will serve a similar role to the Churchill Gateway Development Corp., a public-private partnership between the federal government, the province and OmniTRAX, which has been in place since 2003. The province said Churchill Gateway Development Corp. directors will help set up the new agency.

Appointment Notice

Andy Hu, President

Mark Wartman, Board Chair

Andy Hu, President of MaxCrop Farm Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Wartman, former Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture and Food, as Chair of the Board of Directors effective September 20, 2013. Mr. Hu noted that Mr. Wartman brings a great wealth of experience to the position of Board Chair. Mr. Wartman has served the province of Saskatchewan in a variety of ways throughout his career. He was a Member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan from 1999 to 2007, Minister of Highways and Transportation from 2001 to 2004 and Minister of Agriculture and Food from February 2004 to December 2007. Further he was Development Officer for the College of Agriculture and Bio-resources at the University of Saskatchewan from 2008 to 2011. Mr. Wartman has served as Board Chair for the Wascana Centre Authority and The Saskatchewan Grain Car Corporation. He is currently Vice-Chair of the United Church of Canada Foundation. MaxCrop Farm Canada Inc. is involved in primary agriculture production in Saskatchewan as well as value added processing and export developments to Asia. Maxcrop Farm Canada Inc. is serving as a bridge for primary producers to direct Asian market end use customers and provides alternative financial models to traditional primary production.


Daryl Thiessen likes to live life on the edge — of angry bulls. He has even vaulted right over them, like he did during the freestyle bullfighting event at Canadian Western Agribition in Regina Nov. 14, much to the crowd’s approval. “It’s man versus beast,” he said explaining the attraction of the event, which is growing in popularity in the United States but is less well known in Canada. Agribition introduced it last year, inviting four bullfighters to compete in three rounds. Monty Phillips, who trains blue heelers and breaks colts when not bullfighting, won the inaugural event. This year, six competitors took part, including Phillips. In the end, Thiessen, of Elm Creek, Man., and Curtis Smyth of Kennedy, Sask. earned identical scores from the judges and split the $3,000 prize. The sport developed a profile during the 1980s Wrangler series in the U.S. when the best competed at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. The contest is typically 50 seconds long. The bullfighter engages the bull, but also avoids him by dodging, jumping and using a barrel. At 30 seconds a horn sounds and the fighter has the option for another 20 seconds to earn more points. “You want to end the best you possibly can,” Thiessen said. The judges award up to 50 points each for the fighter and the bull. This all takes place in a small part of the arena to keep the competitors close. The freestylers generally are in the business of cowboy protection. In other words, they work as bullfighters during the bull riding event. “This was originated by the rodeo

clowns,” said Thiessen. “They (bullfighters) wanted to show their athleticism.” He thinks the crowd likes it but said they might be more impressed if they saw one of the American rodeos with purebred Mexican fighting bulls that are much tougher to fight. Thiessen, 23, has been fighting bulls professionally since he was 18. In 2012, his first year of serious freestyling, Thiessen made it to the world championships in Oklahoma even after suffering a broken back while practicing in June. “I went to step around the bull and he just got a hold of me, threw me up and pretty much mauled me,” he said. “I was supposed to be out for nine weeks and I got back in fourand-a-half.” This year, he tore his medial collateral ligament in July and was out for three months before being able to get in some fall rodeos in the southern U.S. The shortened season meant he didn’t make enough money to say he can live off rodeo. An off-season job will be a necessity. His family no longer operates the farm where he grew up. Last year he worked a pipeline job in Regina and this year he expects he might be trucking somewhere before buying some cows in spring and working on his real estate licence. “I understand it’s something that doesn’t last long,” Thiessen said. “But there are guys who are 50 still fighting and guys who are 30 that are calling it a day.” Until that happens he will continue to do what he loves. He trains in a gym regularly and plans to head back south for the rodeo circuit next year. “We’re not just a bunch of crazy cowboys,” he added. “There’s an art to it. You’ve got to be an athlete to be good at it.”





South Sask. basin plan criticized as too vague Details needed | Residents question how oil and gas activity, cattle grazing, recreation and conservation will meld BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

One impression keeps arising in discussions about the draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan that is now the focus of public hearings in southern Alberta. It has holes. “Most of the information is quite vague,” said Joe Lumley, vice-president of the Crowsnest Pass all-terrain vehicle group called Quad Squad. “Its pretty open-ended and loosey goosey,” said Western Stock Growers Association president Aaron Brower. “The plan hasn’t addressed appropriate land use,” said Katie Morrison of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. The plan’s goal is to provide a longterm vision for the region to manage effects on the landscape. The watershed is home to 45 percent of Alberta’s population and much of its livestock. It includes the eastern slopes of the Rockies, popular recreation areas, extensive grazing and cropland and forestry, oil and mining activity. The region is the second of seven regional plans the province intends to develop under its land use framework. Brower said he has concerns about

Clearcut logging in the Castle crown area of southwestern Alberta is a source of controversy. | including additional provincial parks and conservation areas. The draft plan identifies 32 new and expanded recreation and conservation areas. “When you do conservation and

such, eventually down the line … you can’t do conservation and have people on the landscape at the same time, the way most of the conservation groups see conservation. “I don’t think it will be truly posi-


tive, but I’d like to be wrong.” Brower said some graziers in the organization worry about recreational activity in sensitive grazing lands along the mountains and Porcupine Hills.

Oil and gas activity and the access it provides to grazing land is also a concern in his region in Alberta’s deep southeast. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

sation for hosting large elk herds are two examples he thinks should be considered. Workshops to get public input on the draft began Nov. 5 and will con-

clude this week. People can also provide input online, with a Jan. 15 deadline. The Nov. 14 Lethbridge meeting drew a large contingent of recreational users in the watershed who frequent backwoods trails in the forest reserve, mountains and foothills. Some worry the plan will curtail their activities. “Once any area becomes a park, it’s a different set of rules and you don’t really get the same freedom as you do with just forestry,” said Lumley. “So that’s going to affect the cattle business, it’s going to affect the ATV business, it’s going to affect hunting.” He said he understands concerns about irresponsible recreational users who tear up sensitive areas, drive into rivers and creeks and scare wildlife. Lumley said he would like more patrols of camping and ATV areas by personnel with authority to hand out stiff fines or confiscate equipment of those who go off trails and damage land. Morrison said her group wants to see more conservation land, but she disagreed with comments that suggested conservation groups want people banned from public land. “We definitely don’t take the stance that recreation should not be happening,” she said. “We think that people should be out enjoying our lands. It just has to be done in a responsible manner.” She also pointed out areas the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society would like to see protected, including the entire Castle area in the deep southwest, the Ghost River region, parts of the Porcupine Hills and areas along the Livingstone Range.

Siblings learn the hard way Horsepower, skills | Sport offers adrenaline jolt but requires discipline, trust and dedication BY KAREN MORRISON SASKATOON NEWSROOM

MORTLACH, Sask. — Ty Hicks climbs atop a horse in the chute, wanting it to buck hard, while in his sister Lexi’s rodeo event, horse and rider lean so sharply around a barrel that a fall seems imminent. “It’s a dangerous sport. You just have to know that you can get hurt,” said Ty, which is short for Tyrell. He is this year’s saddle bronc champion for the Saskatchewan High School Rodeo Association and qualified to compete in Wyoming at the National High School Rodeo finals. He also competes in team and calf roping. “I never told anyone I’m not scared,” said Ty. “I do saddle bronc because I like the adrenaline rush, jumping on the back of a wild horse. It’s a lot of fun and when you make a good ride, the crowd goes nuts.” The Mortlach teen has come a long way from his start four years ago, when he felt like throwing up. Lexi and Ty compare a good ride to the feeling of a rocking chair when everything goes right. Lexi said nerves come with the ter-

ritory. “If you’re not nervous, you shouldn’t be doing it. That shows some of the respect you have for the event,” said Lexi, who recently won her first Canadian Cowboys’ Association barrel racing event. She also participates in pole bending, goat tying, breakaway roping and team roping and has travelled to events as far away as New Mexico. The Hicks’s mother, Karla, keeps calm by staying behind the video camera recording their events. “It’s like you’re watching someone else’s kid,” she said. Karla hopes the worst wrecks, such as Ty’s recent spill at Val Marie, Sask., and ambulance ride to the hospital

for stitches, are behind them. “It’s to the point where I’m not screaming anymore,” she said of her role as spectator. She normally feels less anxious for Lexi, although a recent wild ride on a powerful new horse still makes her “sick to her stomach.” “All the stars have to line up for the perfect run,” said Karla. Lexi said rodeo events take much discipline and dedication to master. “Most of it is trust in your horse, partner and especially yourself,” she said, noting a good rodeo horse should be well muscled, with a long stride and power to spare. The Hicks seek out good training for their children and actively sup-

port their efforts, but some have doubted the young siblings’ ability to handle the demands of the sport. For Ty, who gave up hockey for rodeo, it made him more determined to prove them wrong. “I said, just watch me.” Lexi said not much scares her brother. “Once he puts his mind to something, he goes for it.” The siblings support one another, often getting more nervous for the other than for themselves. They prepare by focusing on their best ride and challenging themselves to repeat or improve on it. The Hicks stay rodeo ready during winter off season by doing chores on their 800-head Black Angus and custom grazing operation, breaking colts and training in a nearby indoor arena. “If you don’t stay in shape, there’s no point in entering the next rodeo,” said Ty. Karla said the children were fortunate to grow up riding horses, showing cattle for 4-H and being mentored by the skilled horsemen who work for them. “The kids realize how blessed they are to spend time with them.”

Couples from Alberta and Nova Scotia were named Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers during Canadian Western Agribition in Regina. “There are truly seven winning couples here,” said Michael Kalisvaart, who with wife, Karen Jansen, represented Alberta. “It’s been great to get to know you. I know we’ll be lifelong friends. We’re going to take this award and be ambassadors and share our pride in agriculture as farmers.” Kalisvaart, Jansen and their extended family operate Kalco Farms, an 11,000-acre grain farm near Gibbons, Alta. James and Amanda Kinsman, who represented the Atlantic region, milk 190 Holsteins and grow corn, soybeans, wheat and haylage on 2,000 acres near Berwick, N.S. Kalisvaart and Jansen’s three children, Anna, 17, Marijke, 14, and Timothy, 11, were in Regina for the announcement. “My daughter was tweeting today after our presentation, saying she was so proud of us,” Jansen said. “You don’t always get to hear that from your kids because they don’t think to tell you that.” Kalisvaart said they are building a sustainable operation that the next generation can take over. Even small improvements in processes during the busy seeding and harvest times can help, he added. For example, they identified loading the air seeder as a major bottleneck. “We’ve made constant improvements where we were looking for ways to even shave minutes off of our loading, so the two minute improvement on loading of one air seeder, times 10 times a day, times 14 to 20 days, adds up to a lot of time and better utilization of equipment and savings in a narrow window to get all our acres seeded,” he said.

Guatemalan Highlands alive with culture, colour



e’re overwhelmed with a riot of sights, smells and sounds. The market at Chichicastenango is considered the most colourful in the Americas, attracting buyers and sellers from around Guatemala, trading in everything from food and livestock to finely woven textiles and cheap tourist knick-knacks. On Sunday, commercialism in this mountain town melds with religion. The action centres on the steps of Santo Tomas Church, now chock-ablock with women selling flowers. A man tends a fire to make coals for sweet smelling incense that devotees carry in tin cans and wave back and forth at the church entrance. Outside, the thick acrid smoke drifts like a permanent cloud, and inside, we can barely see as incense mixes with the smoke from hundreds of candles. Though the church is Roman Catholic, many rituals have more to do with Mayan mysticism. The church had to make significant concessions to ancient local beliefs to thrive here. Guatemala’s highlands are the centre of traditional Mayan culture, where it’s like taking a step back in time. Many people (especially women) continue to dress in elaborate, colourful outfits that seem straight out of a museum. The designs are so distinctive that you can often tell which town a woman is from by the patterns in her dress. What makes the highlands appealing for travellers is that this exotic culture lies in spectacular scenery. Most famous is Lake Atitlan, a deep caldera formed by previous volcanic eruptions, now ringed by high hills and three perfectly formed volcanic cones. It is one breathtaking view after another as we wind down the switchbacks to the lakeside town of Panajachel. The rainy season is ending during our late October visit, and forested

hills are vibrant green, with waterfalls streaming down slopes. We spend a couple nights in the tiny community of Jaibalito, with no road access, no motor vehicles and only two narrow pedestrian streets. A thin slice of level land lies immediately next to the shore and then the slopes rise sharply, with houses clinging to cliff faces and tiny plots of corn covering steep hills that would make a mountain goat dizzy. Nearby San Juan is known for its small scale organic farming. Coffee is big business in Guatemala, but here coffee trees are grown in the shade so as not to destroy the forest. Another business makes traditional medicines from native plants. Most intriguing is the women’s weaving co-operative, where not only is the cotton grown organically but all the dyes are vegetable-based, producing deep red from beets or a soft orange shade from carrots. In Santiago, we visit Guatemala’s most famous, unofficial saint. Maximon melds the trappings of a Mayan deity with a Christian saint, although the church thoroughly disapproves. We’re led along a narrow alley to someone’s house. The cramped dark room is filled with flickering candles, wafting smoke and incense and decorations galore. In the centre sits the statue of Maximon, looking more like a bandit than a saint, wearing two cowboy hats and adorned with garlands and scarves with a cigar stuck in his mouth. Two proud attendees watch over him, passing devotees’ offerings to the saint. People bring gifts of candles or often a dose of cheap but powerful booze. Believers pray to him asking for favours, and he is said to grant less than saintly wishes, such as helping you take revenge on someone. The setting is surreal, with everything taken quite seriously. Maximon changes houses once a year. When we ask an attendant how they decide where he goes, he answers without hesitation: “Maximon tells us, of course.” Arlene and Robin Karpan are well-travelled writers based in Saskatoon.

Lower Shannon Farms takes on unique ventures Recycling, solar heat | Greenhouse provides community with fresh produce year round BY KELLY SIDORYK FREELANCE WRITER

LLOYDMINSTER, Alta. — John Acton has wanted to be a farmer since his days on his grandfather’s farm near Sligo, Ireland. The Canadian version of Lower Shannon Farms near Lloydminster, which is named after the Irish farm, is a mixed grain and cattle operation. It recently added enterprises that are part of John’s vision to build a farm to fork operation that provides consumers with locally produced food. With a mandate of offering natural, antibiotic and hormone-free goods, John and his wife, Robin, also produce free range eggs, chicken, turkey, beef and pork. “(We’re) hoping to meet all of Lloydminster’s future demand for locally grown produce,” John said. Sustainability is an integral part of John’s management. “Basically we have the capability and resources to achieve 100 percent self-sustainability in food production. Saskatchewan has the most sunshine days per year in Canada with over 200. This includes recycling of water, solar energy and heat through flax straw,” he said.

“We have got the natural resources to be fully sustainable. We underutilize our resources.” The centrepiece of the expansion is the 15,500 sq. foot greenhouse. The goal is to be self-sustaining in power, heat and water. Flourishing inside are rows of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, lettuce and micro-greens, peas, beans, onions, herbs and strawberries. An outdoor garden grows a variety of vegetables, while grow tunnels house strawberries until the end of October. It’s the only year-round vegetable greenhouse in the region, but the Actons are encouraged by the interest of a growing consumer market. The 3,500 acre farm dates back to 1926 when Robin’s great-grandparents came to the area from England and Montana. John took over the farm management in 2008. Robin, a former health region administrator, has recently joined the enterprise in marketing and special events. Children Erin, Kelsey and Connor, who represent the family farm’s fifth generation, are also involved, along with 10 full-time staff and seasonal workers. Robin said full production com-

environment as opposed to a garden has been a big shift as well as building a market and a managing supply,” Robin said. The Actons now sell through a farmers market, local eating estab-

lishments and retail space in the greenhouse. This fall, Lower Shannon Farms was given the Entrepreneur of the Year award by the Lloydminster Chamber of Commerce.

WHY THE BUNDT? I was recently asked why I love to bake bundt cakes. By using a bundt pan, any flat cake can be transformed into a circular and elegant piece of art that is easy to decorate with a glaze or dusting of confectioner’s sugar. I also find it easier to serve than digging a flat cake out of a nine x 13 pan.

CHOCOLATE CHERRY BUNDT Cherry mixed in the batter makes for a great presentation. I used cherry pie filling with some prairie grown sour cherries and a little extra sugar. 2 c. 1 1/2 tsp. 1/2 tsp. 3/4 c. 1 1/4 c. 2 1/2 c.

flour 500 mL baking soda 7 mL salt 2 mL cocoa 175 mL sugar 300 mL eggs butter or 125 mL margarine, melted 1 c. buttermilk 250 2 tsp. vanilla 10 mL 2 (540 mL) cans cherry pie filling Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C). In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa and sugar. Mix well with whisk.

If you are short of time, use a cake mix and use the following recipe: 1 pkg. chocolate cake mix (regular size) 3 eggs, lightly beaten 1 tsp. vanilla 5 mL 2 cans (540 mL) cherry pie filling In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs and almond extract until well blended. Stir in pie filling until blended. Pour into a prepared bundt pan. Bake at 350 F (180 C) for 50 to 60 minutes as above.

CRANBERRY APPLE PUMPKIN BUNDT This fruit filled cake has just the right spice. 1 1/2 c. peeled and diced 375 mL apples 2 tbsp. butter or 30 mL margarine, melted 1/2 c. finely chopped 125 mL chopped fresh or frozen cranberries 1/2 c. packed brown 125 mL sugar 3 tbsp. flour 45 mL 3/4 c. finely chopped 175 mL pecans 2 c. granulated sugar 500 mL 1 c. butter or 250 mL margarine, softened 4 eggs 2 c. canned pure 500 mL pumpkin 1 tbsp. vanilla 15 mL 3 c. flour 750 mL 2 tsp. baking powder 10 mL 1 tsp. cinnamon 5 mL 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 2 mL 1/4 tsp. cloves 1 mL

1/8 tsp. ground ginger 1/2 tsp. baking soda

0.5 mL 2 mL

Preheat oven to 325 F (160 C). Mix the chopped apples into the first measure of butter to coat in a medium bowl, then add cranberries, brown sugar, flour (the first measure) and pecans. Toss until well blended. Set aside. Beat granulated sugar and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Add pumpkin and vanilla, beat just until blended. Combine the second measure of flour with the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and soda. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended after each addition. Spoon half of batter into a greased and floured bundt pan. Spoon apple mixture over batter, leaving a half inch border around outer edge. Spoon remaining batter over apple mixture. Bake for about 70 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in the centre of cake comes out clean. Cool and decorate with a glaze, icing sugar or nothing. Note: I have baked the cake with the batter and apples divided and I have stirred the apple mixture into the batter. Both give good results.

MAPLE GLAZE 1/2 c. 2 tbsp. 1 tbsp. 1 tsp. 1 c.

pure maple syrup 125 mL butter 30 mL milk 15 mL vanilla 5 mL icing or 250 mL confectioner’s sugar

Bring maple syrup, butter and milk to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly for two minutes. Remove from heat, whisk in vanilla. Gradually whisk in powdered sugar until smooth, stir gently about five minutes or until mixture begins to thicken and cool slightly. Use immediately.

Assisted suicide a difficult topic worth discussing A PRAIRIE PRACTICE



t is 20 years since the Supreme Court of Canada, in a 5-4 decision, told Sue Rodriguez of British Columbia that she did not have the right to get help in ending her life. Rodriguez was suffering from a terminal condition in which she would soon lose her ability to swallow, speak, walk and move her body without assistance. Her claim was based primarily upon Section 7 of The Charter of

Rights and Freedoms, which addresses life, liberty and security of the person. Section 241(b) of the Criminal Code states that anyone who aids or abets a person to commit suicide is guilty of an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for up to 14 years. The fact that the Supreme Court was so divided at that time is not surprising. The court struggled with all the issues around the sanctity of life, the possibility of abuse and the deep ethical concerns around assisted suicide. This case is worth looking at and can be found online at the Canadian Legal Information Institute’s website at The citation for the Rodriguez case is [1993] 3 S.C.R. 519. The Province of Quebec recently tabled Bill 52, An Act Respecting End-of-Life Care. A lot of information is also available online about this bill,

which was introduced in June. Much of its content and philosophy is derived from what is being done in European countries. Assisted suicide was discussed at the recent provincial and territorial health ministers meeting, and it was also at the centre of a recent court case in British Columbia: the Gloria Taylor case. One of the most moving and persuasive arguments in favour of considering doctor assisted suicide is from Dr. Donald Lowe, who had earlier been known as the voice of the SARS crisis in Ontario 10 years ago. His video, filmed eight days before his death, is a heartfelt and straightforward discussion of the issue from someone who was in the middle of the situation, understood the issues as a physician and had the courage to talk about how he felt.

The video can be viewed online. Assisted suicide is an issue that all of us will be called upon to think about and struggle with. It is not by any means an easy issue, but it is one upon which our elected officials will need our reasoned opinions and input. One of the most difficult realities of the assisted suicide debate is that people like Sue Rodriguez do not have the same natural ability as do most of the rest of us. Those of us who are able-bodied have the right and the ability to end our lives at any time if we chose to do so. However, because of their illness, they have lost the actual physical ability to end their lives and therefore need assistance should they make that choice. The law as it now stands prevents people like Rodriguez from having the right that the rest of us have, sim-

ply because they are physically disabled. As well, their dire situations mean that their reasons for wanting to end their own lives may be more profound than those of most ablebodied people. The real concerns of potential abuse must be kept front of mind, as must the voices of those who say doctor-assisted suicide will become a solution that will be a substitute for meaningful, effective palliative care. However, this debate is before us again, and it is something all of us should consider with an open mind, and compassion.

Grandparents worry farm doesn’t offer enough to entertain kids SPEAKING OF LIFE



We are not sure what to do with our grandchildren. Two of them are coming to our farm from the city while their parents are attending a workshop. We are afraid the kids are going to have six long and boring days with us and will not likely want to come back for visits in the future. We sold our animals a few years ago and have rented out our land so that we can retire. We have nothing here. These kids are heavy into computers and stuff and won’t have much use for that old relic Papa uses in his den to check his emails. He thinks


that we should buy some electronic stuff for the kids, but I am not sure how we are going to go about getting the right gadgets for them. Do you have any suggestions for us?


I would not spend a lot of money on electronic equipment. The kids will be bringing their own games, cellphones and iPads with them. If you managed to find the right electronic games and gadgets to buy for your grandchildren this year, you would only have to replace them with new gadgets next year. The electronic world is a whirlwind. Keeping up to all of the changes in electronic devices for the grandchildren could be more expensive than you might realize. You sound like you are short selling yourselves. Have you forgotten what a wonderful place the farm can be for young children? Those good times you had with your own children are still there for your grandchildren.



Who could forget carving bows and arrows and slingshots out of caragana branches, skating on the dugout, defying the Canada Food Guide with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and warm soda pop to keep you going while building a snow fort in the bushes. The farm is a gold mine for resourceful children. Your grandchildren have grown up in the city. They are not familiar with

the country. They might need you and your husband to help them discover a new and wonderful world for themselves. With a little help from you, they too can find it. Of course none of this makes sense unless you and Papa have your own moment of excitement. Country life is more than just nice: it is thrilling. You are not competing. This is not urban versus rural. Your grandchil-

dren likely have a rewarding life in the city. Add to that the mystery of what nature has to offer them on the farm and they have another chunk of enrichment in their lives. Does it get any better? Jacklin Andrews is a family counsellor from Saskatchewan. Contact: jandrews@

Low BMI affects cycles HEALTH CLINIC



Are athletic or exam-stressed teens more likely to have irregular or intermittent menstrual cycles? What’s normal? What is cause for concern? Do mothers have a right to contact the doctor and get more information?


Over-exercising can also cause missed periods, especially in women competing in certain sports such as gymnastics, which often leads to low levels of body fat relative to muscle mass. Ovaries will stop producing estrogen if body fat drops below 16 percent, and periods might become irregular or stop altogether. Poor eating habits, such as consuming too many carbohydrates, can also cause missed periods, particularly if the person is not eating enough. The body won’t produce enough of the female sex hor mones it needs if it’s undernourished, and this can be a symptom of anorexia nervosa. Missed periods are common in

women with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 19. Normal is around 19 to 24.5. Stress can also affect the menstrual cycle. Certain parts of the brain affect the adrenal glands when we are under stress, which in turn produce the hormone cortisol. Cortisol has a direct impact on the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone and DHEA, which are responsible for sending signals to the ovaries for normal ovulation. Missing one or two periods every now and then is not a cause for concern, but an ongoing situation could indicate bone loss or osteoporosis, which is usually a problem only for post-menopausal women. It might be necessary to visit a doctor if menstruation is continually irregular so that an underlying medical condition such as polycystic ovaries can be ruled out. As a mother, or any other concerned person, you have a right to contact the doctor to provide relevant facts about the teenager. However, you may not have the same right to receive confidential medical information. It depends on the situation, but even young teenagers have a right to medical confidentiality unless the physician thinks they are a danger to themselves or others or have been sexually or physically abused.

Harsh winter weather can magnify existing vehicle problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling. Car Care Canada recommends the following tips to ensure top vehicle performance this season:

Check the cooling system • A 50/50 mix of coolant and water keeps coolant from freezing, lubricates the water pump and protects the cooling system from corrosion. In cold areas, increase the concentration, but never use more than 70 percent coolant to 30 percent water. Flush and refill coolant every two years. Get a winter tune-up • Have a mechanic change the oil and filters, replace worn wiper blades, clean and adjust wiper nozzles if necessary and check the heaters, defrosters and fuel, air and transmission filters. Check the battery • Cold temperatures reduce a vehicle’s battery power. Check battery connections to ensure they are clean, tight and corrosion-free. Consider replacing older batteries before they show signs of trouble.

Check the tires • Winter tires have a tread design that provides a better grip while throwing off snow and slush, providing more stability when braking and better vehicle handling. Always install winter tires in sets of four. • Check tire pressure more often during the winter. Tires lose about one p.s.i. of pressure for every 5 C of temperature drop. Use a pressure gauge to check tire pressure when the tires are cold. Don’t trust the appearance of a tire as a gauge for inflation — a tire could be 10 p.s.i. low on pressure and not appear to be low on air.

Top up the gas • Keep the gas tank at least half full to limit condensation in the tank and reduce gas line freezing. Source: | MICHELLE HOULDEN GRAPHIC

Producers want COOL solution

Winner’s circle familiar to horse trainer

Canadian cattle producers and some of their American counterparts will have to agree to disagree on the need for country-of-origin labelling. Representatives from South Dakota, North Dakota, Kansas, Wyoming and Colorado met with Saskatchewan producers during Canadian Western Agribition last week in Regina for their annual round table discussion. And while Silvia Christen, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, said they found common ground on issues such as the need for research and innovation and succession planning, COOL was a different matter. “The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association has, from the very beginning, been very strong supporters of country-of-origin labelling, and we continue to support it,” she said. “We feel that it’s something very important for our country and our producers. However, we understand that we need to be WTO compliant.” The association’s support for COOL centres on promotion and labelling of U.S. beef. Christen said all types of food products are labelled with country of origin, and there should be a way to do that for beef and still comply with the World Trade Organization. However, the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association has a different view. It supports labelling through free enterprise and entrepreneurship rather than a governmentmandated program. Aaron Jacobson of Noonan, N.D., lives 10 kilometres south of the Canadian border. “As an individual, I’ve been opposed to COOL since it was first proposed,” he said. “COOL has impacted me negatively.” He said there are fewer Canadian animals at the stockyards in Williston, N.D., and there is a negative basis between the northern part of North Dakota and the area closer to South Dakota. He said he pays the same price whether he buys Canadian or American bulls. “Yet when I take that bull with a load of bulls to sell for slaughter, I’m discounted anywhere from 10 to 15 cents, strictly because it has the CAN (brand) on its right hip.” He also said people are losing their jobs as American plants struggle to cope with COOL. Christen said the South Dakota association is aware of those concerns, but she said other issues are also at work, such as market concentration. “We need to be realistic about what those market forces are,” she said. Mark Elford, chair of Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association, said COOL was costing Canadian producers $40 to $60 a head. Now, with Tyson out of the market because of COOL, that estimate is $100 per head. Elford said he was happy to hear South Dakota producers say they want to comply with WTO, but the issue has to be resolved soon. “We’d like to see it get fixed through the farm bill,” he said, rather than waiting for the WTO process to play out.

Training for 20 years | Working with the horse’s mind is a talent, says Dale Clearwater STORIES BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Dale Clearwater’s success at Canadian Western Agribition continued Nov. 15 when Dolly D Day won the Select Ranch Horse competition and then topped the sale. Clear water of Hanley, Sask., trained and rode the sorrel mare for consigner Lana Wutzke of Vanscoy, Sask. The five-year-old mare sold for $10,000 to Bryan Bexson of Saskatoon after earning 618 points in the competition and winning the $5,000 prize. The reserve competition winner was Dualin Lil Lena, owned by Dave Fiddler of Admiral, Sask., and trained and ridden by Clint Christianson of Bracken, Sask. The gelding sold for $8,100 to Larry and Darlene McDonald of Vermilion, Alta., and earned $2,500 in the competition. Third prize of $1,500 went to Pica Chex, consigned by Hayley Lang of Humboldt, Sask., and ridden by Tyler Darroch of Yorkton, Sask. The gelding sold for $7,400 to Rocky Ross of Botha, Alta. Nine horses sold for a total of $61,800 and an average $6,866.67. Last year, 16 lots averaged $8,400. Clearwater has a long track record of success at the Agribition event. This year he also participated in Ride ’em Cowboy, a trainer’s challenge event new to the show.

Dale Clearwater took the top price with Dolly D Day at Agribition’s Select Ranch Horse competition and sale. | KAREN BRIERE PHOTO He and another well-known trainer, Cain Quam from Kendal, Sask., began working with two horses that had never been ridden before. Each spent an hour a day for four days working with their horses before a crowd in the Brandt Centre. On the final day they rode through a pattern and were judged on the performance. Clearwater said the idea is to show people how horses are trained, although it would generally take a month to accomplish what he and Quam did in four hours. “We are kind of fast tracking these horses to do a competition,” he said. “Both Cain and myself know that we’re working with the horse’s mind, and we can only push that as far as (the

horse) will allow.” He said anyone watching at Agribition or other similar events might think the horse is ready to ride, but that’s far from the case. “They are very well trained after four hours to the untrained eye, but they are still very green and very unpredictable.” However, the point of the event was to educate the public. Clearwater said brute force isn’t an option when breaking a horse. “It’s not like the old days when we were bucking ’em out and tying ’em down and all that kinds of stuff,” he said. Getting inside a horse’s mind is something he, Quam and other repu-

table trainers do. The challenge is to know how far to push a horse without pushing too far. Clearwater said the horse tells them what that limit is. He said the horse far outweighs the average trainer and could easily do what it wants. Working by feel and timing puts the trainer in control. “Society as a whole is so mechanical and everything has a gas pedal or a steering wheel or a push button, and it’s hard to explain to people that you can connect and get into that horse’s mind and have them working with you rather than for you,” Clearwater said. He could yank the reins and turn the horse to the right, or he could offer the turn and say, “come to the right, please,” and get better cooperation. “It’s something for me that’s a Godgiven gift. I’ve tried to teach so many people, and it’s either there or it’s not.” Clearwater has been training horses for 20 years. Quam, who won the competition in the end, has conducted more than 200 horsemanship clinics. At Agribition, he also participated in cowboy mounted shooting. The two colts the pair used during the trainer’s challenge sold at the ranch horse sale for $2,500 and $2,300. Eleven prospect horses also sold for an average of $3,545.45. The high seller was Cosmic Smoke, a gelding consigned by Jesse Rempel of Hanley and bought by Scott Watson of Wolseley, Sask., for $5,800. The prospects are two- and threeyear-olds that are eligible to return to the competition and sale after age four.

EDMONTON — A law banning fusarium graminearum infested seed in Alberta doesn’t work and should be rewritten, say some rural municipal councillors. Westlock County reeve Bud Massey said each municipality should have the right to decide if fusarium is declared a pest and not allowed or declared a nuisance under the pest act and controlled through farming practices. “We should have the right to make the decision which is best for the residents of our county,” Massey said after introducing a resolution at the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties convention. The act, which declared fusarium a pest in 1989, hasn’t kept fusarium out of the province and hinders the industry, said Steven Miller, pastpresident of the Association of Alberta Co-op Seed Cleaning Plants. “That has not solved our problem. It may have slowed the issue,” said Miller. Field surveys have detected fusarium in most areas of the province, except the Peace River region. “In the Peace, there are no reports of fusarium graminearum. No one is saying they should let the bad seed come in. Despite the best intention of the pest act, fusarium graminearum continues to spread,” Miller told the convention. Barrhead County detected no positive samples last year, but 23 percent of the samples tested positive this year, he said. “If we do not pass this resolution and municipalities can not move the pest act forward, we are disadvantaging the producers in this province,” he said. “We won’t have varieties of new seed because of this. Science tells us planting fusarium infested seed on land with fusarium will not make your problem any worse.” The resolution was strongly defeated. Jim Wood, reeve of Red Deer County, said clean seed is the foundation for good farming. “When I hear there are areas with four or five percent infection, that means there are 95 percent not infected,” he said. Let’s not infect the entire province.” Gerry Lentz of Cypress County said farmers should not be encouraged to plant seed that is infested with fusarium. “There is no such thing as an acceptable level of infection,” he said. “Either you have fusarium or you don’t.” Marie Dyck of Northern Sunrise County also opposed changing fusarium from a pest to a nuisance. “Less than half the seed cleaning

plants in Alberta have reported fusarium graminearum infected seed lots, indicating the problem is regionalized, not province wide,” she said. “In order to protect the regions not infected, fusarium graminearum should remain a declared pest and should not be reduced to the nuisance category.” Doug Dallyn, also of Northern Sunrise County and a representative of his local seed cleaning plant, said the seed cleaning plants in northern Alberta “overwhelming like to stay at zero tolerance.” Lorena Paul, general manager of the Alberta Seed Growers Association and the Association of Alberta Co-op Seed Cleaning Plants, said both organizations passed resolutions last year asking the government to open the pest act and allow for changes. “They hoped to allow for flexibility across the province,” said Paul. She said areas that do not have fusarium can continue to have a zero tolerance level, while areas that have fusarium can concentrate on best management practices that better control fusarium. Don Sendziak, president of the Alberta Seed Growers Association, said a zero tolerance policy makes it difficult for farmers in southern Alberta to get and grow new cereal varieties. “There is no doubt about it, there needs to be a change,” he said. Rick Stamp, a southern Alberta seed grower, said the existing pest act creates different rules for farmers who don’t test their seed and seed growers who follow the pest act and don’t plant infected seed, even if only a small amount of fusarium is detected. “It’s not helping our agricultural economy,” said Stamp. The policy forces growers with even small amounts of detectable fusarium to dump their seed, he added. “It’s going to put seed growers out of business. It is absolute silliness.”






Chicken Farmers of Canada eager to meet kosher poultry demand

Beef, chicken sales boost Tyson

Ontario processor closed in May | Investors are looking at reopening Toronto’s Chai Poultry plant, which processed about 2.5 million kosher chickens annually FREELANCE WRITER

A kosher chicken shortage is getting worse, despite efforts by the only Canadian processor still in production. Marvid Poultry has increased its production in Montreal, but it appears it won’t be enough to fill the demand for kosher poultry products. Chai Poultry, the only other kosher Canadian poultry processing plant, shut its doors in Toronto last May and sold its chicken allocation quota to a conventional processor after unsuccessfully seeking a buyer for five years to take over the plant. Mike Dungate, executive director of Chicken Farmers of Canada, said there is less supply since Chai closed, but Marvid has significantly increased its production. “There is concern among kosher consumers with there being only one processor due to the cost and risk management,” said Dungate. “There is much discussion within Ontario Jewish communities to find another processor. There is an investor group in place willing to operate out of the old Chai plant. The quota that has been sold is an issue, but just as a quota has been sold, someone else can now buy a quota. Barring that, you can look to the provincial chicken board to help find a way to adjust allotment with the allocation Chicken Farmers of Canada provide.” He said Ontario has asked Chicken Farmers of Canada for additional supply to meet the kosher demand. The request will be considered at the national association’s Nov. 26 board meeting. “Something will change — if there’s an ongoing shortage — one way or another,” said Dungate. “It may involve Marvid doing more, having another plant or importing. At this point, before there are any more moves, they’ll want to hear what we say, if we’re willing to give extra allocations for Ontario to accommodate this. It’s a policy challenge for us to find the best way to deal with this situation.” Michael Edmonds, director of communications and government Relations with Chicken Farmers of Ontario, said Ontario is the largest kosher consumer community in Canada, and Chai was this community’s largest supplier. “We’ve been dealing closely with a number of people from the Jewish community who, like ourselves, would like to see an Ontario solution for Ontario-grown and processed kosher chicken,” he said. “With this group of investors interested in kosher chicken processing, there’s a business entity willing to invest money in this. So we’d like additional kilos from the national system, supportive of the opportunity to process kosher chicken in Ontario.” Edmonds has heard about the kosher chicken shortage in Ontario. “For many in the community, it’s kosher chicken or no chicken,” he said.

Richard Rabkin, director of marketing with the Kashrus Council of Canada, which provided kosher certification for Chai for 25 years, agreed that the kosher chicken shortage is a problem. “From published reports, Chai was producing about 2.5 million kosher chickens per year, a significant number to compensate for,” said Rabkin. “Marvid has certainly ramped up their production, but consumers are



telling us it’s insufficient.” Rabkin said he receives daily phone calls from concerned community members, who tell him there is not enough chicken and not enough of the types of cuts they are familiar with and prefer. “The group of investors looking to reopen the Chai plant is being led by Perl’s, a famous name in the kosher meat business in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA),” said Rabkin.

(Reuters) — Tyson Foods Inc. has reported a 28 percent jump in quarterly profit, helped by higher chicken sales and a rebound in beef. Tyson also estimated a one percent increase in the production of chicken, beef, pork and turkey for the fiscal year ending in September as increased grain supplies reduce the cost of raising animals. U.S. meat producers are coming off a tough year as higher feed costs crimped margins. That pushed up meat prices, prompting many grocery shoppers and restaurant operators to switch to lower-priced meat. Tyson said it expected fiscal 2014 sales of $36 billion, while analysts on average had forecast $35.67 billion, according to Thomson Reuters mar-

kets information agency. JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman said he expected Tyson’s U.S. chicken production to increase at a slightly faster rate than the company’s forecast for a three to four percent rise. Tyson said it expected industry hog supplies to increase one to two percent in fiscal 2014. Executives said the outbreak of a hog virus deadly to baby pigs had begun to affect the market. Reduced supplies could push up wholesale pricing. Tyson’s chicken sales rose 2.4 percent to $3.16 billion in the fourth quarter ended Sept. 28, accounting for 36 percent of total sales. Beef sales rose four percent to $3.75 billion, contributing 42 percent of the company’s total.

Farmers applying too much potash: researcher Faulty soil tests blamed | Study found that inconsistent results were prompting producers to over-apply the nutrient BY DAN YATES SASKATOON NEWSROOM

University of Illinois researchers are questioning farmers’ reliance on soil tests and the use of potash fertilizer. Unreliable potassium soil tests mean growers are fertilizing when they don’t have to, say the researchers, who published their paper, The Potassium Paradox, in the journal Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems last month. They took biweekly soil samples for potassium during a four-year field study and found inconsistent results. “Just like a doctor who tests your cholesterol: one day it’s 150, the next

day its 250. So how can he prescribe medicine?” said Saeed Khan, one of the researchers. “That’s exactly like our problem was. How can we prescribe fertilizer if we don’t have a reliable number?” The researchers say soil tests miss potassium in the profile. “The test targets a fraction that’s called exchangeable,” said Richard Mulvaney, another paper author. “It makes the assumption that that is the fraction that feeds the plant, but that assumption is simply not valid. You have other forms of potassium in our soils and especially in soils that have what are called 2:1 clay minerals, and those other forms which are not recovered by the standard soil test do

supply much of the K that ultimately feeds the plant.… That’s exactly the source of the problem. The test is not specific for what does supply the plant, and available K is not synonymous with exchangeable K.” As a result of their findings, the researchers argue that many fields in the U.S. corn belt can do without an application. Khan said a 200 bushel per acre corn crop will remove 46 pounds of potassium, but residues return 180 lb. of the mineral to the soil, which is more than the next crop needs. According to Saskatchewan’s agriculture ministry, potassium content in the province’s soil varies from 100 to 50,000 lb. per acre with one million

acres deficient in the mineral. Sandy and peaty soil is the worst. Both the ministry and the Canola Council of Canada note that most crops won’t show a response to potassium. Canola growers will see the greatest response in soil that shows less than 150 lb. per acre. “Canola rarely responds to applied K, even under conditions where cereals normally respond,” says council literature. In their studies on potash fertilizer, researchers surveyed more than 2,100 yield response trials, of which more than 700 were under grain production in North America. They found that potassium chloride, or

potash, was largely ineffective for boosting yields. The researchers say use of the fertilizer comes with risks, potentially depressing calcium, nitrogen and magnesium levels and even suppressing yields. Potassium chloride can also harden soil. The paper recommended that growers abandon the conventional potassium soil test and conduct their own small strip trials. “Seeing is believing. When the farmers put out their strip trials and find that they do get a yield increase from applying potassium, they should use it,” said Mulvaney. “But in most cases they will see no such increase.”

Canada continues to object as COOL law comes into effect Federal agriculture minister meets with U.S. counterpart | Legislation costs Canadian beef and pork industries $1 billion a year BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Country-of-origin labelling came into full force in the United States Nov. 23, and Canada continues its objections. The rule has cost the country’s cattle and hog industries an estimated $1 billion per year. Federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz met with U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack last week in efforts to encourage COOL repeal in the U.S. farm bill now being debated in Washington, D.C. “The damages will significantly increase under the amended rule that takes effect this Saturday,” said Ritz in a Nov. 21 conference call from the U.S. capital.

“Canada will continue the pressure to get COOL repealed,” he said. “Each day represents lost or discounted sales opportunities.” Ritz said Vilsack continues to support COOL, but Canada, its livestock industries, the U.S. meat sector and a growing number of U.S. federal legislators object to it because of trade discrimination and potential job losses in the meat packing sector. “There’s a growing recognition that this is a political fix for a problem that does not exist,” said Ritz. Tyson Foods has already announced it will no longer accept Canadian cattle because of the extra expense involved in segregation and labelling. Ritz said that means 3,000 head of livestock once destined for U.S.-based Tyson


plants every week must now be slaughtered elsewhere. As well, he said up to seven American meat packers are “running on fumes” because COOL can make it uneconomical to process Canadian cattle and hogs. Ritz was in Washington with Alberta agriculture minister Verlyn Olson

and representatives from the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and the Canadian Pork Council. “ The most effective solution remains an amendment to the farm bill that repeals mandatory COOL for beef and pork, which would provide the requisite WTO compliance by eliminating discrimination against Canadian cattle and hogs,” CPC chair Jean-Guy Vincent said in a news release. A World Trade Organization compliance panel was struck in late September to determine whether an amended version of COOL complies with international trading rules. The panel is not expected to make a determination until 2014. Ritz said he is confident the WTO will once again rule in favour of

It’s all tied up. When it comes to yield supremacy, it’s six of one, half dozen of the other. It’s been talked about, debated, and argued amongst growers across the prairies. When it’s all said and done, according to yield trials, Genuity® Roundup Ready® hybrids yield on par with the competition.* Like all contests this close, the debate rages on... for now.

Canada, and the country is ready to impose its list of retaliatory tariffs once allowed by the WTO process. “If there’s no fix to COOL in the farm bill, then we stand ready to take retaliatory actions.” Among those actions would be the application of tariffs to American beef and pork exported to Canada. Those exports are worth $2.2 billion annually. A Nov. 21 news release issued by Vilsack outlined his key goals for the new farm bill. They include plans to “promote new markets for U.S. producers abroad and at home, honour our trade commitments and assist our farmers and ranchers to export a record amount of product around the world.”




AG NOTES CIGI ADDS BOARD MEMBERS Brent Watchorn, executive vicepresident of marketing at Richardson International Ltd., and Lawrence Yakielashek, president of Alfred C. Toepfer, were recently named to the Canadian International Grains Institute board. In June, the board approved a new governance model enabling board membership to expand to include representation from other stakeholders in the grain industry. Before this change, the board comprised members from CIGI’s founding organizations: Agriculture Canada, CWB and the Canadian Grain Commission. The board now has seven members from a cross section of the industry, including farmers, marketers and exporters: chair Murdoch MacKay, vice-chair

Henry Van Ankum, secretary Jim Wilson, Randy Johner, LeRon Torrie, Watchorn and Yakielashek. INVESTING IN SKILLS TRAINING TO BOOST PRODUCTIVITY The Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre will use $200,000 in federal funding to deliver safety training for operating industrial equipment. The centre works with partners and institutions to help people in the Saskatoon community get a job in the trades. The funding will help buy a steel-frame, fabric-covered structure to house new equipment, including a skid steer, jackhammer, impact drill, industrial saws and roof harness rigs. The equipment will be used in training programs. Students will learn the appropriate safety procedures and operating principles of the equipment in

addition to their practical training. The Saskatoon Tribal Council is contributing $140,000 toward training costs so that urban First Nations youth have greater access to the centre’s programs. Local employers in the construction industry will contribute an additional $60,000 in the form of wages for on-the-job training. The centre is contributing $300,000 to adapt its training schedule to better meet industry demand for enhanced skill sets.

Dream man found through WP

Sask. may adopt DriftWatch program BY ROBERT ARNASON BRANDON BUREAU



ow Katherine Atkinson first met her husband, Dennis, is not a story she shares often with others. Not that she is hiding anything; it’s just that most people have never asked.  Katherine met her husband by answering a personal ad in The Western Producer in April 1969.  At the time, she was 23 years old and working as a cook in a nursing home in Winkler, Man. The ad belonged to Dennis Atkinson, a farmer near Garrick, Sask.  She does not remember what the ad said; only the letters and interactions that followed during the summer. Katherine and Dennis exchanged letters at least every other day. “And we phoned in between,” Katherine said. “He had to go four miles (to the post office) to receive a phone call because he didn’t have one at home. Mom and Dad had a phone and I would write him a letter, say such and such a time, and I would phone him.” “Mom and Dad didn’t like that very much,” she said. “Too many long distance phone calls.” Though the calls were pricey, Katherine’s parents liked Dennis “right from the start.” The pair decided to meet a few months later and Dennis made the 900 kilometre one way trip to Winkler that summer. “The first time that he came up, he wasn’t quite sure where to go,” Katherine said. “And he came up at night. He didn’t know where to go, so he pulled over and slept in his truck till daylight.” When Katherine was 15-years-old, her great-aunt brought up the topic of having a boyfriend. “I remember so plain as plain can be. I was 15 years old and she said, ‘you haven’t gotten a boyfriend yet?’ And I said, ‘no.’ ... And she said, ‘what are you looking for?’ I said, ‘I’m looking for a tall, dark, handsome farm boy from Saskatchewan.’ ” Katherine said that turned out to be her first impression of Dennis.  “Tall, dark and handsome,” she said. “And wearing a cowboy hat. And I didn’t know if he had horses or not, but I found out later that he only had one. He had cattle and he was on a farm. We had lots of fun. He came up every two weeks. He was faithful. He’d come up to Manitoba.” She visited Dennis once at his farm in September, and the couple married Nov. 20, 1969. Because they never had a honeymoon, they decided to go to New Westminster, B.C., for their 25th anniversary. “I’m not sure why that place, but that’s what he chose,” Katherine said. “That’s where we were going to go, but it never came to that.” Dennis died in 1990, before they were able to make the trip. Carol Reynolds, Katherine’s eldest daughter, had previously heard the story of how her parents met. “I think I knew about it a long time ago and The Western Producer was such a staple in our house,” Reynolds said. She compared her mother’s experience to her own experience with

Although in Reynolds’ case, she never had to go to the post office to

receive a phone call. “So (the operator) heard all of your phone conversations?” she asked her mother. “Yes, she did,” Katherine said with a laugh. “Skype’s come a long way,” her daughter replied.

Saskatchewan apiarists may soon have a new tool to protect bees from pesticides. Beekeepers, aerial applicators, the Saskatchewan government and crop science companies have joined forces to implement a program called DriftWatch. As noted on the program’s website at, DriftWatch was developed at Purdue University and “enhances communications … to help prevent and manage drift effects that sometimes occur from spray operations.” Beekeepers supply information on the location of bee yards, which is then loaded onto an online map. Pesticide

applicators look at the map before spraying a particular field to reduce the chances of an accidental bee kill. “It’s looking promising to have it available next year,” said Saskatchewan provincial apiarist Geoff Wilson. “It’s progressing nicely at the moment. We just have to get things finalized.” Saskatchewan will become the first Canadian province to adopt DriftWatch if the program goes ahead. Beekeepers, growers and pesticide applicators in 10 U.S. states used the communication-mapping program this year. Dow AgroSciences and Bayer CropScience have offered to pay for the program in Saskatchewan so that beekeepers and applicators can use it for free, Wilson said.





Retailers, processors, service sector tackle problem of food waste Reduce, recycle | Grease is being converted into biodiesel and bakery waste into farm feed BY MELANIE EPP FREELANCE WRITER

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Canadians waste 40 percent of their food, worth $27.7 billion a year, says Michael Bloom of the Conference Board of Canada. Fifty-one percent of that is household waste. Bloom told the recent Cut Waste Grow Profit Forum that household food waste is largely the result of excessive package sizes and consumers either preparing too much food or not eating food by the best before or use-by dates. He said only 71 percent of the calories purchased in Canada in 2007 were actually consumed. Reducing food waste has become a major focus in all sectors, even in primary production, said Bloom. For examples, producers use no-till or conservation tillage practices that improve soil quality through reduced soil erosion. They also use nutrients more efficiently and use buffer strips to prevent farm runoff. In the food processing sector, Bloom used Nestle Water as an example of corporate social responsibility through efforts to reduce waste-water production. “(They had a) byproduct and waste recovery greater than 75 percent,” he said. “Spectacular results. It’s important to see that companies can do it and measure it and hopefully we’ll see more of that.” Bloom described these practices not only as money savers but also as market differentiators. “Particularly if they can provide numbers that show that not only is it an ambition but a result.” He said consumers could have the biggest impact when it comes to reducing food waste and suggested that environmental food literacy could change how consumers buy, prepare and store food. Mark Schembri, vice-president of supermarket systems and store maintenance for Loblaw Properties Ltd., said during a panel discussion that his company wants to keep 70 percent of its waste out of landfills, which it intends to accomplish through waste management systems. For example, it converts yellow grease into biodiesel and uses bakery waste as farm feed. Sean Drygas, director of strategy with Maple Leaf Foods, said 50 percent of Maple Leaf ’s unused processed meat is sold to the Asian market. In North America, it is used to produce biodiesel, bone meal and footballs. Drygas said the company’s bakery division experiences significant waste, but the solutions, such as portion packaging, have presented challenges because it increases packaging waste. As a result, Maple Leaf Foods is looking into changing the nature of the packaging rather than the amount used. Sarah Wilhelm, executive chef at a Four Seasons hotel, said her goal

when she took the job was to improve the quality of food and service, reduce overall waste and improve productivity, all while keeping within the existing budget. “A little personal challenge to prove that homemade food does not need to cost more,” said Wilhelm. She was able to meet her goal within two years by reducing food waste from an average of 3,300 gallons to

2,000 gallons per month. Today, she’s further reduced it to 1,200 gallons per month. “The largest hurdle that I have had to deal with to eliminate food waste, even to this day, is the human element,” said Wilhelm. Over-consumption among the hotel’s staff has been a particular problem. Wilhelm’s solution was to reduce

lunchtime by an hour, teach staff about the appropriate handling of food to permit repurposing and educate employees about caloric consumption through a series of lunch and learn sessions. She said she was able to provide homemade food with her original budget, despite inflation and a onethird increase in the number of employees.

Ikea buys wind farm in southwestern Alberta

Ag-business foundation awards scholarships

Generates 161 gigawatt hours of electricity | In August, Ikea bought a wind farm in Ireland BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

Ikea, the world’s largest furniture retailer, is coming to small-town Pincher Creek, Alta. Sort of. The firm announced Nov. 14 that it will buy the 46 megawatt Oldman 2 wind farm from Mainstream Renewable Power, which has been erecting its 20 turbines for months and is expected to complete the $90 million project next fall. Mainstream will continue to operate and maintain the plant.

The wind farm is not one of the largest in the region, which has more than 200 wind turbines. However, it will be the largest owned by Ikea and is expected to generate 161 gigawatt hours of electricity each year, according to an Ikea news release. It is more than double the energy consumption of the company’s Canadian stores, and is enough to meet the electrical needs of 13,500 average households. Ikea has committed to own 157 wind turbines worldwide and has also installed more than 500,000 solar panels on its buildings in nine

countries, the company said. “This wind farm in Alberta, along with existing solar installations at three of our Ontario stores, is a significant step to achieving Ikea’s global ambition to be energy independent by 2020, producing more renewable energy than we consume,” said Ikea Canada president Kerri Molinaro. The provincial government was enthusiastic about the purchase agreement. “The development of renewable energy has been and will continue to be important to a sustainable future

for Alberta,” said Alberta energy minister Ken Hughes. This is the second wind farm Ikea has bought from Mainstream Power. The other sale was announced in August in Ireland. The Pincher Creek area turbines will send electricity into the Alberta power grid at the prevailing market price. They have a rotor diameter of 101 metres, hub height of 80 metres and blade length of 49 metres. The Canadian Wind Energy Association said 16 wind farms were connected to the Alberta electrical grid, producing a total of 1,087 megawatts.

The Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation plans to award six $2,500 scholarships a year for Grade 12 students pursuing a post-secondary agricultural diploma or degree. “It’s basically to promote entrance into agricultural colleges or schools across Canada from high schools,” said Larry Hertz, president of the registered charity. “So it’s, primarily right now we’re targeting Grade 12 students.” The scholarships are intended to encourage students to apply for jobs in the agri-food sector. “In general, most students, unless they have some sort of a relationship to the farm or to agriculture currently with their parents or some family, they don’t really think of agriculture as a career,” Hertz said. Many students don’t know that a career in agriculture is an option. He once worked with Saskatoon high school students taking part in a workstudy program focusing on practical agricultural education. “One (student) was planning on going into engineering and one was going into, I believe it was science, and they both decided to go into agriculture just because of that program,” Hertz said. “We’d love to fund more of those initiatives.” The scholarships will be awarded in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec with one additional scholarship available for students in other provinces or territories. The money for the scholarships was raised over the past two years at an auction during the Best of CAMA, the annual Canadian Agri-Marketing Awards presentation. The scholarship program, as well as the foundation, was launched at the Best of CAMA in Quebec City Nov. 21.

Agriculture Canada is receiving an extra $1.26 million to research ways to control the wheat disease Ug99. Researchers in Winnipeg have identified three genes providing resistance to Ug99. They are now developing molecular markers to help with the wheat breeding efforts. The additional funding will help scientists discover and genetically map these sources of resistance. Ug99 is a wheat stem rust first discovered in Uganda in 1999. Crops from Africa to western Asia are affected, and an estimated 90 percent of global wheat varieties are susceptible to the disease. Ug99 is not yet present in North America, but Agriculture Canada scientists have been working to not only protect the country’s wheat crops but also help the global effort in protecting world wheat supplies.

Dairy cows interact with all their herd mates when they are housed in group barns. Researchers say it is only logical then to set up calves to succeed in the same environment. “In the early, critical developmental stage of their lives, calves are mainly learning where to find the essentials and about social interactions,” said Daniel Weary, a dairy education professor from the University of British Columbia. “Our research is showing socialization provides them with advantages in their lives as calves, but also later, when they’re put into larger social groups.” Weary and his team see pair housing as a good fit because it is a nice transition for farmers who, until now, have been housing calves individually. Making this housing transition is fairly simple in a typical dairy operation. With standard calf pens separated by plywood enclosures, one only needs to remove the plywood between adjacent calves. “This is a small step in management but a large step from the calves’ perspectives: making their environment much more complicated, giving them the opportunity for social interaction and learning,” said Weary. Getting calves established eating solid food while they still drink milk is an important aspect of calf rearing. “If left with their mothers, calves watch the way mom eats,” said Weary. “In a similar fashion, pairing calves mimic each other and transition faster.” He said there will naturally be some variation in how much each animal eats and its propensity to be interested in food. “If you have, say, an early starter put together with a late starter, the late starter will be interested in eating solid food sooner than it otherwise would be.” Having a “friend” also makes a big difference in the animal’s ability to respond to stress. “Animals housed in pairs won’t vocalize half as much as those housed individually,” he said. “They’re going through the exact same stressors, but being in a social group seems to make them much less responsive to those stressors.” Life is much more complicated when calves suddenly have to share their space. “To survive and thrive, calves need to learn and anticipate what the other animal will do, knowing when to get out of the way or when to follow the other animal,” said Weary. “Calves raised individually take much longer to solve what would

otherwise be easy problems. Pairhoused calves, when put into a larger social group, will quite quickly learn how to visit the feeder or the drinker. They know how to follow another animal to the feeder. Calves individually housed will take days and days to figure it out.” Housing calves in pairs can have significant effects, helping them succeed later in life. Wear y and his team w ill now research how pair housing affects cognitive development. “Individual housing seems to be causing a cognitive deficit in calves. We’ve started learning trials on calves to see to what extent their ability to learn is affected by their early environment.” Training calves can be frustrating for both farmers and calves. Weary hopes to change that by providing calves with better cognitive development. “Having animals better able to learn how to do well in a changing, complex environment is critical.” One of his research students had a pet interest in how calves learn, not only when in pairs, but, in particular, when they have an older calf around. “She found having age diversity provided some advantages, developing all those positive abilities just a little better and sooner,” Weary said. “One way the dairy industry comes under criticism is for taking away baby calves from their mothers, often just in the first day or so after birth. When left with their mom, calves are really interested in what mom does when it comes to feeding. As such, it goes on to feed faster. We need to find smarter ways to wean calves.” He said dairy farmers may want to start slowly by moving from individual to pair groups to see what benefits occur.

Calves learn how to feed from their mothers so they go onto feed sooner.

Through the expansion of maize cultivation in the past few years in particular, the plough has regained its importance as a primary cultivator. The reduction of plant diseases, mechanical pest control due to increasing chemical resistance, and the fight against new pests, are among the most important tasks facing a plough today. Recent research has shown that loosening and aerating the root zone, with a plough, can improve the formation of rape roots, for example, thus laying the foundation for high and guaranteed yields.

Information sharing improved in new railway safety measures

Agribition recognizes Jim Barber

Regulation review | Railways may be required to carry additional insurance BY WILLIAM DEKAY SASKATOON NEWSROOM

David Marit, president of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, says he is pleased with new requirements that railways must share information with local emergency response teams and planning officials. “There’s a lot of discussion yet but I think they’ve moved in the right direction to at least let communities know,” he said. SARM, along with the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, has been working with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to develop recommendations for the federal government to improve rail safety through stricter regulations and better enforcement and information sharing. “Sharing information is an excellent start,” said Weyburn, Sask., mayor Debra Button, SUMA president. “There is still a long way to go if we are going to avoid tragedies like the one in Lac-Mégantic.” Marit said a balanced approach can be achieved between growing commercial interests of the railroads and


the safety of communities. “I don’t think it matters where you go in this country. We’re getting more and more train traffic occurring all the time and that’s not going to reduce. We have to look at all aspects of rail safety,” he said. Claude Dauphin, president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities said the Lac Megantic tragedy and recent derailments in other parts of the country have underscored the critical role that municipalities play in planning for and responding to rail emergencies involving dangerous goods. The July 6 derailment of a runaway train carr ying crude oil at Lac Megantic, Que., killed 47 people and destroyed much of the town’s core. The federal government announced Nov. 21 an additional $97 million to further assist with cleanup.

The new measures introduce the following requirements: • All Canadian railway operators are now required to provide municipal emergency planners and first responders with annual information on the nature and volume of dangerous goods being transported through their communities; • Large Canadian railway companies, such as Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway, will be required to include in their annual reports a quarterly breakdown of the nature and volume of dangerous goods shipped through Canadian communities; • Smaller railways will be required to notify municipalities of any significant changes to the information provided in their annual reporting. In October, the federal government announced additional measures for railways to review the classification of crude oil products shipped by rail. They have also committed to further targeted action, including requiring railways and shippers to carry additional insurance.


Jim Barber is a familiar face at Canadian Western Agribition, even though he lives thousands of kilometres away near Manchester, England. He’s been attending the show since 1989. “I’ve bought animals here and taken them back, and bought embryos and semen,” he said. “I’ve also exported animals and semen and embryos this way.” Barber has also been bringing 4-H members to compete in the international judging competition. Last week, he was recognized with the Jim Lewthwaite Memorial Award for his promotion of the show internationally. “I’ve judged cattle all over — Australia, Belgium — but for me, this is the best of the best,” Barber said. He has made lifelong friendships at Agribition and said he appreciates how everyone talks to each other and shares information. Over the years, he has seen Canadian genetics go one way and then another. He has been viewed as a pioneer back home for taking those genetics back to England. “I’ve always been one to play and experiment and see if I can improve things,” he said. “Cattle are my life. I love them. They’re both my hobby and my living.” He had Belgian Blues, Simmentals, Holsteins, Friesians and Brown Swiss cattle while actively farming. Now

retired, he still works in the industry doing ultrasounds, inspections at point of sale and classification programs. In addition to his individual award, Barber was thrilled last week with the performance of his 4-H team, which placed second in the judging competition, their best result ever. Barber said he was emotional about the result. “It’s a bit difficult for them because what the judges wanted here is slightly different than home, but obviously the youngsters had described what they wanted and why they did what they did, and pulled the points back that way,” he said. “I’m full of admiration for my team.” The competition included judging horses and pigs, which the British participants had never done. “First and foremost, mobility has got to be essential to any animal,” Barber said of what judges are looking for in the competition. “Structural correctness is essential for any animal. Animals are animals, and if you put your basic rules to other species, you’ll get by.” He said the British industry would never want cattle with the fat cover seen in Canada. “We’d want cattle with longer legs, maybe a bit less middle. Our commercial world demands that.” The Jim Lewthwaite award recognizes those who work to enhance Agribition’s international profile and presence. Lewthwaite was one of the founders of the show.

Purebred Angus cattle graze at Buck Lake Ranch near Peachland, B.C. Wayne Fipke and his wife, Ava, recently sold the herd but plan to keep a small commercial herd. |



Man of many hats lured by quest for perfect bull Gem of an idea | Finding diamonds in Canada’s north allowed Wayne Fipke to return to the lifestyle he enjoyed BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

Wayne Fipke began his life on the farm and then returned after a varied career in show business, diamond mining and property development. His family originally lived in Alberta,

although he was born in Ottawa in 1948. He eventually ended up on a small farm near Kelowna, B.C. “One of the things about farming and being poor is you learn to innovate,” he said. “Adversity creates more self reliance and more ability to do things. That helped me a lot.”

He earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree at the University of British Columbia and did post graduate studies in administration at Harvard. He put himself through university by working in sawmills, as a carpenter, as an aerial photographer and as a tutor for investment dealers getting licences.

NEWS Ektai, about 250 kilometres north of Yellowknife. High grade diamonds were eventually found and the company was listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Fipke retired from that job in 1993. He and his wife, Ava, returned to the Okanagan region, where they designed and built estates in Kelowna, Big White and at Buck Lake Ranch. His brother retired to Kentucky and is now in the Thoroughbred business with a dream of one day raising a Triple Crown winner. Fipke yearned to return to ranch life. He had always liked cattle and bought the Buck Lake Ranch in 2004 near Peachland. It was homesteaded in 1906, but the years had taken their toll. “The place was dilapidated, but it was a beautiful location,” he said. He and his family cleaned the place up, hired some help and restocked it with 200 cows. He had always admired the work Hereford breeder Grant Hirsche did with his specialty butcher shop and wanted to start a beef program of his own. Fipke started supplying a couple specialty butchers, and the initial response was good. However, butchers soon complained they wanted AAA beef. “The butchers told me this meat is single A and not marbled properly,” he said. “It was tender enough but it was not what they wanted.” He could not guarantee AAA and did not want to develop a bad reputation for delivering inconsistent product. It became an intellectual exercise for him to study pedigrees and the science of beef quality so that he could produce more AAA carcasses. He had built up a commercial herd of 500 cows and started turning them into a purebred Angus herd of 250. “The belief in science, the belief in genetics, is what motivates me,” he said. “My ideal was to create a pool of genetics in which I could pretty well have developed the highest marbling, the highest rib eye, highest yearling weight and moderate birth weight and have the perfect bull.” Fipke studied cattle’s statistics and performance and performed ultrasounds. He started buying cattle from breeders with a similar mindset who also collected statistics and worked on continuous improvement. “You can have the greatest genetic potential on paper, but then the animal doesn’t quite produce,” he said. “Every analysis that is possible, I’m doing it.” He said more breeders need to do this because it will improve marketing opportunities and create a better commercial herd. “If you have not got the numbers, then you are at a disadvantage,” he said. “If you want to compete, (you need) bulls that are measured and proven

to be capable of giving off traits that you can count on.” However, time got the better of him and he realized he was going to have to disperse the herd. Ava has a successful perennial plant business, and she wanted him to slow down as she edged toward retirement. A few health problems and a desire to spend more time with his family of four adult children, four grandchildren and a great-grandchild finalized the decision. Ranch remains home His dispersal was held Nov. 23 at the Calgary Stockyards in Strathmore. He chose the Alberta market because of the larger customer base. The Okanagan Valley has few cattle customers because of the changes that have occurred there. “Ten years ago when I started there


were 20 ranches with cattle in my area. There are now three,” he said. BSE took its toll in the southern region and the land has become too expensive to farm. Selling the purebreds does not mean Fipke is leaving the ranch: he plans to keep a small commercial herd of 150 cows. The ranch comprises 680 acres and an adjacent crown range of 77,000 acres. It boasts ample water in 17 lakes and numerous streams as well as a large producing aquifer that yields three million gallons a day. The ranch will continue, albeit at a quieter pace. He highly recommends a new agriculture career later in life, when middle aged people who have made money elsewhere can return to their roots while they still have the time and stamina to make it work. “A lot of people grew up on ranches, so come on back,” he said.


My ideal was to create a pool of genetics in which I could pretty well have developed the highest marbling, the highest rib eye, highest yearling weight and moderate birth weight and have the perfect bull. WAYNE FIPKE B.C. RANCHER

Amazone, coming to a country near you Farm equipment | One of the biggest machinery companies you might not know about BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

GASTE, Germany — Amazone is not a common name in Canada, but the agricultural equipment company has plans to change that situation. The 130-year-old German company got its start in farm equipment by shipping its first product around the world, and that history has allowed it to pursue markets across the globe ever since. “But we have tended to look at markets for our equipment that are similar to European farming: high yielding, intensive management of every hectare,” export manager Wilfred Koldehoff said during the Agritechnica farm show in Hanover. Sven Dutzi, who heads international marketing for the company, said Amazone has changed with the times. “We have seen changes to our European farming with larger sized farms, and we have had some more recent experience in Eastern Europe and (Russian) agriculture,” Dutzi said. “Our (machinery) has evolved to meet those markets.”


The company makes spraying, fertilizer application, tillage and seeding equipment, in some cases combining vertical tillage with product metering and air delivery for single pass trash management and seeding. “The (Amazone) equipment is becoming a better fit for North American agriculture, and agriculture around the world has changed to become more (site specific) and intensively managed,” he said. Both factors have meant that a company that once built only for higher rainfall, intensively managed European style farming is now building machinery that can compete for farmers’ dollars in Canada, Russia and Australia. Eighty percent of the company’s machinery is exported, but Klaus Blaffer, a logistics manager at Amazone’s plant in Gaste, said North America is still a new market for the old company. “Recent improvements in agriculture’s economics mean the company hasn’t had to look further (afield) for new markets, but that doesn’t mean

we aren’t. Economics of agriculture means that companies have to spread their products widely, to where there are farmers in need of new tools and able to invest in them,” he said. “Everything Amazone does is well planned for. It means that farmers always get our high level of customer service along with a piece of machinery. It is a package with us, service, parts and a person to deal with, no exceptions.… But I think this might mean we seem slower to jump into new markets.” Amazone got its start and its name when a machine from a small town in Germany was taken to a farm show on the other side of the world in Chile. Heinrich Dreyer built a fanning mill in the late 19th century that allowed farmers and grain merchants to clean their grain for seed and improve its value. The wooden cased grain cleaner had an advantage over its competition that evidently wasn’t lost on


Dreyer. It came in its own box. The fanning mill could be easily dismantled and was shippable around the world. The Amazone company was born. A cultivator and a fertilizer spreader with an auger-style metering distributor allowed the company to sell machinery outside its native Germany. Even in the early years, in times of significant inflation, Dreyer kept money in foreign currency to hedge against variability in domestic and other markets. “The company has its roots in inter-

national sales,” Blaffer said during a tour of Amazone’s home factory. Like most farm equipment companies, Amazone has done well in recent years, and the family owned business will break its own sales record this year with earnings higher than $710 million. Koldehoff said the company has recognized the potential of the 60 million acre western Canadian market as well as the U.S. Plains states and has had some farmer demand from the region. “There are European farmers that have been emigrating to Canada that have taken some of their machinery with them, some of our Amazone seeding and application (tools),” he said. “Their neighbours see it and they become interested and the transplanted European farmers want to buy bigger and newer units.” Degelman Industries in Regina imported a vertical tillage tool a few years ago that was met with some success in the North American market.


“It is over, but we learned a lot about the market and now they have their own and they are selling it into Europe,” Koldehoff said. “This is an international business and now we are looking to expand with more distribution and dealers in the rest of North America.” The company has a distributor in the U.S. Midwest, Ontario and Quebec, he added. The company has developed tools for broad acre, prairie style production, including pull-type sprayers up to 2,800 gallons, self propelled machines with booms reaching 120 feet and hoe

Along with a myriad of other products, the company also builds a precision fertilizer spreader that controls spreader width and rates on the fly. Dutzi said those sales have to be “hand in hand with service and parts, so that is our challenge. We have the (farm equipment) for the market.” The family business sticks to the principle of keeping the company operated and held by only two family members at a time. “It allows Amazone to invest heavily in research and development, about five percent of sales, and in new technology, rather than pulling money out all the time to serve its shareholders,” said Blaffer. “We have 26 Agritechnica innovation awards in eight shows. We are innovation focused,” he said. The company has 2,000 employees and operates seven factories: five in

Germany and two in France. “We have corporate objectives, but they are different than many companies,” he said. “They are about what we can deliver — five percent more yield, 50 percent less fuel and 60 percent reduction in working time — so farmers can farm larger (acreages).” The company builds more than 1,500 small and mid-sized sprayers annually, including tractor mounted units and 1,400 larger pull type ones. It built 100 of the self propelled high clearance units this year and plans for 250 next year.

Hybrids more suitable than electric vehicles for cold prairies ENERGY FIELD



ention cars and we typically think of fossil fuel powered vehicles: gasoline, diesel, propane or natural gas. Electric cars might seem like a recent invention, but more than a century ago, none other than Ferdinand Porsche developed a vehicle that used a gasoline engine to power a generator, which in turn ran an electric motor on each wheel. The battery alone could propel the car for 60 kilometres, but then its top speed was 50 km-h. It took until the 1990s before work on electric cars became a serious business. Electrical powered cars are becoming more popular, even in rural settings. There are several types of electrically powered vehicles. The pure electric vehicle, known as the EV, is totally electric with only batteries for power and a cord to fuel it. The hybrid, the HEV, uses a gasoline engine and/or electric motors to propel the vehicle. It does not require external charging of the batteries

because the fuel powered engine takes care of that process. The plug-in hybrid, a PHEV, has a gasoline engine and electric motor combination, but the batteries can also be charged by plugging in the car. The EV uses only electricity for motive power. Its only source of energy is the batteries, which are charged at home, at work or other charging locations. It has a limited range of travel, restricted by the size and capacity of the battery bank. The HEV uses a combination of electrical motor and engine to provide power: sometimes one, sometimes the other, sometimes both at the same time. It has a longer range of travel and isn’t dependent on charging stations because it is not dependent on battery power alone. The PHEVs go one step further. The battery can be charged by plugging it into an electrical source, but the fact that there is an engine backup for recharging means the vehicle has a longer travel range than an EV. Ideal in cities The surge in electric cars is driven by a desire to reduce fuel consumption. Electric vehicles can do that, especially in urban driving and combined urban and highway transportation. This in turn leads to fewer carbon dioxide emissions and cleaner air.

Toyota’s Prius is an example of hybrid technology that is catching on in rural and urban environments. | WILL ODDIE PHOTO Electric cars can significantly reduce smog and the asthmatic and allergic responses to smog in humans. They can also reduce noise. In fact, they are so quiet there is even concern about the safety of pedestrians who don’t hear them approaching. The EV uses no fuel directly, but electricity is not free. It is often generated through the burning of coal, typically away from urban centres, though in some cases the electricity can be greener when generated from hydro, wind or solar sources. Charging batteries at night benefits power companies because it makes use of excess power. Many of them are offering cheaper rates for nighttime users. You might wonder how hybrids can save energy or fuel. After all, there is still an engine and the weight of extra

batteries. Regenerative braking was one of the first major new features of modern electric cars and was developed in the late 1970s. This system doesn’t waste the energy of friction that is created by pressing brake pads to steel drums or discs to stop the vehicle. Instead, braking is done electromagnetically, which captures the machine’s forward momentum and turns it into energy that charges the batteries. This is especially important in urban driving, where there is much acceleration and braking. The use of this technology significantly helps with fuel economy in urban situations, which is why you will see a lot of Toyota Prius taxis. A hybrid such as the Prius has an engine, but it is smaller than what is

found in a conventional car. The engine is used to back up the electric motor and/or re-charge the batteries as necessary. It also provides the extra power needed for acceleration, working with the electric motor. The HEV stops both the engine and motor when not required, which produces the odd sound of nothing running while at a stop sign or traffic light. The engine or electric motor will engage again only when motion is needed. Fuel is used more sparingly because braking energy and the batteries provide the additional fuel that is required. Trip length is not an issue because fuel can be topped up as needed. Cold affects distance So how do electric cars fit in coldclimate Canada? The EVs have a limited travel range, maybe 100 to 150 km in optimal conditions. It takes hours to recharge, so you are not likely to head out on a major road trip in the dead of winter with nothing but an extension cord and a positive attitude. As well, travel distance in cold conditions is dramatically reduced because battery capacity drops dramatically in colder temperatures and cabin heating must come from the same battery bank that powers the vehicles. As a result, pure EVs are not well suited to cold climates and long drives, and are limited to more temperate locations and short hauls, typically for commuting or deliveries. Not a farm’s first choice. On the other hand, the hybrids have the range of a more conventional vehicle. The Chevy Volt, a PHEV, runs on battery power until the battery is depleted after 60 km and continues with the engine charging the batteries. It has a maximum trip of 600 km between fuel fills. The Ford Fusion Energi claims as much as a 1,000 km range without refueling. You are not likely to find a pick-up truck EV unless it’s 2013 or older. GM dropped its hybrid trucks for next year. As well, you are not going to find a high performance vehicle unless you buy a Tesla, which will set you back close to six figures. You can still buy SUVs such as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, but most of the hybrid clan is in the sedan category. Electric and hybrid sales represent a small portion of overall vehicles sold, and they are more expensive than conventional counterparts. However, sales of electric cars are growing in spite of the challenges of performance and pricing. As well, the cost benefit balance improves for these machines with every model year. Most rural residents of the frozen north might not make one their only choice, but some day in the not-toodistant future, you might experience the strange phenomenon of an electric car in operation, pulling away from the farm in virtual silence, with just the sound of the gravel in the fenders to keep you company.

Farmers get inside scoop as tractor torn to pieces Agritechnica technicians dismantle machine BY MICHAEL RAINE SASKATOON NEWSROOM

HANOVER, Germany — Working in a giant, German fishbowl, mechanics tore a perfectly good tractor down to its parts. “Farmers love their machinery. They always want to know what goes on inside a piece of machinery,” farm equipment engineer Raffaele Talarico said about his project to show off what makes a modern tractor tick. “No matter how complex (it might) get, a farmer still wants to know how it works.” Talarico’s dismantling project took place during the Agritechnica farm show in Hanover earlier this month. The week long farm show draws more than 450,000 people through its gates. Farmers, machinery company executives and a few interested members of the public got to see six technicians take apart the cab, the frame, brakes, engine and the drive line of a

brand new tractor. They did it behind four walls of plate glass in the middle of the trade show’s Systems and Components hall. Crowds formed around the glass to watch as the tractor was reduced to small parts bins and major components that might be found in the assembly line of a farm equipment factory. “We couldn’t take every piece out, but they took apart quite a bit,” said Talarico, who operates the Italian branch of DLG, the farmers’ society that runs Agritechnica. The point of the exercise was to illustrate that farm equipment is largely dependent on components not made by the machinery’s branded maker. “They buy the cab from one company. The transmission from another. The engine arrives ready to install from someone else. The axles and drives are built by a company that specializes in those elements,” he said. “It takes more than a Deere or an

They are responsible for the design and assembly, the delivery and marketing and support. Often the innovative things we find in the machine are built by suppliers.” Carraro Drive Tech supplies some of the drive parts that are found in the Deere tractor that was dismantled for the Agritechnica display. Fabio Gallo of Carraro said as a supplier of parts to a variety of manufacturers, it remains partners of many of the OEM manufacturers for decades

as suppliers of replacement pieces and developers of new technology. “We go beyond the sale of parts and spare parts,” he said. “We advise on the maintenance of our axles and transmissions. We develop new technologies as well. We are the ones you don’t see in your agricultural tractor. But we are still there.” Talarico said suppliers often drive the technology forward, coming up with innovative solutions to farmers’ needs. It is the machinery company

that puts the technology to work inside the equipment. Show organizers brought in component makers during the week to be interviewed for the crowd and discuss their roles in building the dismantled John Deere.

The trade deal with the European Union allows an additional 50,000 tonnes of beef exports, but cattle must be hormone-free and raised and slaughtered in Canada. | DEBORAH BUTLER PHOTO BEEF EXPORTS | MARKET EXPANSION

EU deal will trigger new product, markets Specialized product | Producers raising hormone free cattle for European markets may find other markets open up BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

CARBERRY, Man. — The free trade deal with the European Union will help beef producers access many other markets as well, they were told during a regional meeting of Manitoba Beef Producers. Canadian Cattlemen’s Association president Martin Unrau said it’s about building enough market demand to allow farmers to start viably producing beef raised without added hormones or antibiotics that is becoming popular around the world. “The Europe deal is not just about Europe, it’s about raising kind of a different set of animals that fit that

market,” Unrau said. “Those same animals will valueadd into China, Russia, Egypt, Taiwan, because they’re also ractopamine-free.” The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with the EU, which may take years to finalize, allows an additional 50,000 tonnes per year of Canadian beef to be sold to EU countries. However, EU rules block beef that is produced in the common North American way, including the use of added hormonal products such as ractopamine, which increases feed conversion efficiency. To sell to European buyers, Canadian producers will have to raise


their cattle without added growth promotants and unnecessary antibiotic supplementation. As well, packers will need to guarantee that the beef is from such animals and that they were born, raised and slaughtered in Canada. Those are expensive alterations to the present high-productivity cattle production methods now used by

almost all farmers, but MBP general manager Cam Dahl said high beef prices in Europe will compensate for a higher cost of production. “The market for hormone-free, it’s big. It’s big enough to go after.” Dahl said few packers and farmers would be willing to switch to EUcompliant methods if there wasn’t a sufficiently large market, which makes the additional quota essential. As well, he said the mechanism in the agreement to establish a system to deal with non-tariff barriers to trade will be key. After Canada’s troubles with American barriers such as country-of-origin labelling and BSE restrictions, establishing a system to dismantle impediments is

“perhaps more significant” than the additional quota. He said the European market should not be seen as small or secondary, considering that the Canadian quota equals about as much as Manitoba produces in a year. Federal employment minister Jason Kenney told the meeting that the government insisted on the extra beef and pork quota because without it, Canada would not easily evolve to produce enough beef for markets that have similar demands to the EU. “We wanted to get that number so that there would be a critical mass so that beef producers could go into a specialized product,” he said.


Improved cattle facility brings more visitors — with wallets BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

The improved facilities at Canadian Western Agribition drew more people through the Stock Exchange this year, said the chair of the commercial cattle events. Garth Neher of Southey, Sask., said there was more traffic in the barns as a result of better lighting and heating and the implementation of The Yards display space. “In conversations I’ve had with people, they say traffic is up and that

gives them more marketing opportunities,” he said. Entries included 70 feeder steers, 95 open replacements, 185 bred heifers and 15 pens of bulls, which was comparable to the previous year. “We’re pleased to have a full barn,” Neher said. The Yards space was sold out before the show with a waiting list. Neher said those displays provided a way for purebred and commercial breeders, as well as the public, to see what each segment of the industry is about.

In the show ring, a pen of 10 Simmental-sired heifers from Doug Westman of Vermilion, Alta., was named the grand champion pen of bred heifers. They sold for $2,075 each during the sale. The reserve grand champions were five Red Angus heifers from Bl a i r s w e s t L a n d a n d Cat t l e o f Drake, Sask., which sold for $2,050 each. A pen of five Simmental-Red Angus heifers from Mebs Ranch of Broadview, Sask., earned the top price of the sale at $2,275 each.

Gord and Sandy Gerrard of Southey showed the grand champion feeder steers. The Black AngusSimmental pen of 10 weighed 8,320 pounds and sold for $1.35 a lb. to Weaver Ranching of Lloydminster, Sask. The reser ve grand champion feeder steer pen included five Charolais cross steers from Darryl and Maria Friesen of Carrot River, Sask. They sold for $1.405 per lb., also to Weaver Ranching, to total $5,808.27. The Gerrards also showed the

grand champion pen of open replacement heifers, while Sentes Farms of Raymore. Sask., had the reserve. In Bull Pen Alley, a pen of Simmental bulls from McIntosh Livestock of Maymont, Sask., was named supreme champion. The average price for feeder steers was $1.52 per lb., with an average weight of 699.91 lb. Open replacement heifers averaged $1,063.16, and bred heifers averaged $1,706.76. The sale grossed $491,153.66.


Minister hints of more access to foreign workers Changes may be coming to seasonal farm workers program to allow year round employment BY ED WHITE WINNIPEG BUREAU

CARBERRY, Man. — It isn’t easy to hire people to work with cattle on the edge of the vast new gas and oil fields of southwestern Manitoba. Potato plants and hog barns also have trouble finding workers. “We are the ones who are always getting robbed (by the) next better paying sector,” producer Tom Baron said during a Manitoba Beef Producers regional meeting Nov. 14. “Just what is the viability of the beef industry when we can’t afford to pay even $15 (per hour) to run the cattle up the chute, to feed them, to make sure all the protocols and paperwork gets done?” Baron was taking advantage of a rare opportunity to put a senior federal minister on the spot about a crucial labour issue facing farmers across Western Canada. Employment minister Jason Kenney spoke to the cattle producers during a tour he took of the area to promote the candidacy of Larry Maguire in the Brandon-Souris byelection. Kenney said he had tried while he was immigration minister to improve the availability of foreign-born workers for farmers, quadrupling the number of workers allowed into Canada as permanent residents. “We know a lot of Canadians don’t want to do some of the basic ag jobs these days, in the packing plants and whatnot, and there’s competition in the rural areas, especially in the Prairies, with people going into the oil patch to double their income,” said Kenney. Immigration rules were altered to reduce the phenomenon of “hundreds of thousands of guys with degrees that end up driving cabs in Toronto and Vancouver,” and the government has supported bringing in temporary farm workers. Kenney said the government is hoping to expand the seasonal farm workers program to allow year-round operations to use them. “Ag operations who do have livestock finishing operations might be able to access that kind of flowing coming from Central America and the Caribbean,” said Kenney. However, he cautioned cattle producers not to expect the government to throw the door open to foreign workers or immigrants. “We have to keep a bit of a balance here. A lot of Canadians don’t understand,” said Kenney. “They say, ‘you’ve got 13 percent youth unemployment, (so) why are you bringing in anyone from abroad?’ ” said Kenney. Baron said producers like him don’t object to seeing workers accepted as permanent residents because they help rural communities. “These people sure know how to shop for groceries and fill school buses, which is increasingly important out here,” said Baron.




Small sheep breeder makes big splash Several banners | Braebank Stock Farms breeds North Country Cheviot, Canadian Arcott and Ile de France sheep BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Rolly Bateman thinks he might be the oldest rookie of the year ever. At age 60, the sheep breeder from Pilger, Sask., won that honour at the Saskatchewan Sheep Breeders Association show and sale held during Canadian Western Agribition. He, along with his sister and brother-in-law, has only been in the sheep business a short time. Bateman is a well-known Shorthorn breeder who also had an embryo business. He dispersed his herd in 2008 for health reasons. “I need something I can do and so, health-w ise, I can still handle sheep where I can’t handle cows,” he said after his first Agribition sheep show. Bateman, who has exhibited at Agribition since it began, remembers when a tent was set up where the current sheep barn now sits. The water hydrant inside would freeze by the second day, and exhibitors had to haul pails from the Prairie Building until the supply there froze, too. The weather in the early years of the show was the worst, he said. “There’s a picture of me bringing a Shorthorn bull from the race track (where tie-outs used to be located) and the drift was so high, we’d had so much snow, there was a little red car parked there and we walked over the top of it. Didn’t even realize it was there.” At home, his purebred ewes are treated like commercial animals, which appeals to commercial buyers. Bateman has 70 breeding ewes of three breeds: North Country Cheviot, Canadian Arcott and Ile de France. Canadian Arcott sheep were developed at the experimental farm in Ottawa. He said he bought some commercial ewes as embryo recipients and liked them so much he bought purebreds. “They lay down, they give you two or three robust big lambs, they get up, they nurse, they do their business,” he said. “I call them the no-nonsense breed.” They also grow fast. His lambs are 130 pounds by the time they’re 100 days old. The heaviest has been 142 lb. at that age. “It’s a breed that more and more c o m m e rc i a l g u y s a re g o i n g t o because they can utilize them as a terminal sire or they can keep those half-blood daughters and they work really well in a good flock,” he said. Ile de France sheep are relatively new to Canada. The breed was developed from a Merino cross in France and was first imported in 1995. “They maintain really nice wool but are very much developed as a carcass breed,” Bateman said. “I just thought we should have a challenge so I bought a few.” He already has a waiting list for breeding stock of both breeds. As well, he sells Canadian Arcott rams into intense commercial production flocks that want out-of-season lambing. “As good a response and as good a year as we’ve had, I probably could have a flock of 300 ewes and be sold

out, but that’s never going to happen,” he said. His facilities only allow for lambing 20 ewes at a time, and the workload suits both him and his sister. Bateman’s Braebank Stock Farm took several championship banners home from Agribition. In the Canadian Arcott classes, Napkin 20T and Braebank Augusta Aster 29A were grand and reserve champion ewes, respectively. Junior exhibitor Tamara Knapp from Southey, Sask., showed the latter. Medicine Ridge 514Z and Braebank Alpha 2A were the grand and reserve Canadian Arcott rams. Braebank also won grand champion ewe, any other breed, with Baerental 3Z, and grand champion ram, any other breed, with Georgella 11Z. Braebank Admiration 20A was the grand champion North Country Cheviot ewe. In the sale, Braebank Alpha 2A sold for $550 to Terry Grajczyk of Zehner, Sask., which was one of the higher prices. Topping the Nov. 16 sale was Westwood Zeller 16Z, a purebred Suffolk ram consigned by Westwood Suffolks and Texels of Elkhorn, Man., which sold for $825 to Frances Dyck of Swift Current, Sask. The SSBA sale averaged nearly $300 a head on a $24,300 total, while the Katahdin sale averaged $550 on 10 lots. The high seller in the Katahdin sale was a ram lamb, JJCM A384 from Mish Katahdins at Glenavon, Sask. He sold for $700 to Triple C Ranch of Arborfield, Sask. Mish Katahdins nearly swept the show ring, showing the grand champion ewe, JJCM 521X, and grand and reserve champion rams, JJCM 2742 and JJCM A401, respectively. Triple C showed the reserve ewe, CCC73Z.

Video auction sales way of future Internet broadcasts | Live events and ongoing sales attract wider buying audience STORIES BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH CALGARY BUREAU

REGINA — What started as a video service for beef producers who wanted action shots of their cattle has turned into a full-fledged operation that not only puts cattle on film but produces internet transmissions of shows and sales across North America. “We started it out of a need,” said Tim Lockhart, who runs Cattle in Motion with his brother, Davy, from Texas. Eleven years ago they offered only a video service for ranch promotions, which Lockhart admitted wasn’t as polished as what they now offer. “We didn’t know what we were doing. We learned as we went,” he said. They now handle 200 sales per year, which are broadcast live over the internet. Viewers and buyers come from the United States, Canada, Scotland, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, Denmark, Ireland and England. Sarah Buchanan of Ontario joined in 2010 to develop the Canadian operation, bringing her experience from life at Gold-Bar Livestock. “For 10 years I was a certified financial planner. Cows were a hobby,” she said. These days she can be seen sitting at the auction block with the rest of the sales team monitoring the online activity and chat boxes. Cameras are placed strategically around the sale ring so visitors can see and hear the same action as those who are at the auction. “We try to make the experience as much like being in the stands as you can,” said Lockhart. The company videos 5,000 to 7,000 head per year in Canada and 20,000 in the U.S. He said their production values and sales broadcasts have improved

along with the internet technology. “The internet changes daily. Our speed got faster and it is more accessible,” he said. However, they often work on farms and ranches where finding reliable connections is a challenge. He said the company has always made it work but admits that the most difficult were events held at Fir Mountain and Aneroid in Saskatchewan, Emu, Ont., Minnesota and Linn, Texas, near the Mexican border. “ Ev e r y d ay i s a n a d v e nt u re,” Buchanan said. Besides live events, they offer an internet sale that runs over several days similar to an eBay auction. It saves producers money and labour because running a large production sale on the farm takes plenty of help and time. Business started to escalate around 2008-09, and the company started to offer more services.

Besides promotional videos and sales, it can also offer a professional service that shows cattle at their best. A website and a Facebook presence are designed to build interest for a wider audience. “Anybody can make a video and they can put it on YouTube and nobody sees it,” said Lockhart. At Canadian Western Agribition, they offered a 30 minute daily recap of events with interviews and highlights. It appeared live in the morning and could then be viewed whenever people signed in. They also video national junior shows as well as shows in Denver and Houston. DVDs are offered for sale. Lockhart said services like this are the wave of the future and open up sales to a wider buying public. “There won’t be a sale where there won’t be a live video,” Lockhart said.

Successful auction REGINA — Ryan Dorran and Ben Wright don’t think of themselves as torchbearers for the next generation of livestock salesmen. However, both have been immersed in the purebred cattle world all their lives and started working livestock sales when they were barely out of their teens. They have been mentored along the way by parents, breeders and the older generation of auctioneers and ringmen working sales across North America. Wright, 27, grew up and lives at Hanover, Ont., where his family has 50 fullblood Simmentals. He and his father, Carl, also sell grass seed in Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan for ProRich Seeds. The hours are long and he figures he takes 65 flights a year and drives thousands of kilometres selling seeds and cattle. Wright’s father also worked as a ringman for the Alberta based livestock sales management company Transcon Livestock and encouraged him to try working sales as well. As a result, he has been busy since he started eight years ago. “I have never made a resume in my life,” Wright said between working sales at Canadian Western Agribition Nov. 11-16. An avid hockey player as a youngster, he gets the same competitive adrenaline rush working the high paced, high priced purebred sales. He has to be on his toes with enough agility not to miss bids and the stamina to travel across the country. “It’s like a sport, and I’ve met a lot of good people along the way,” he said. His first sale was working with his father. Stage fright set in with sweaty palms and beating heart, but he was soon hooked. Wright’s largest sale was for WatCha Land and Cattle Co., a large Charolais cattle dispersal in Ontario held in 2007 after its owner, Charlie

Watson, died in 2006 at Agribition. There were 800 people in attendance and the event was emotional because Wright’s father had been a close friend of Watson’s. “That is a sale I’ll always remember,” he said. The marketing community is small, and entrance and acceptance are hard won for someone interested in joining the fraternity. “There aren’t that many doing that. It is a tight knit group,” he said. “I have been fortunate to be accepted by a lot of the sales managers. One of the benefits I’ve had in coming into Western Canada is that lots of people in Ontario buy cattle out here. I’ve been able to send cattle from here out there.” His weekends are full, working at sales at a venue such as Agribition or on farms, where the events are




eers incite buying frenzy

Ryan Dorran of Olds, Alta., has been a ring man and auctioneer at purebred cattle sales for nearly 10 years. He has made a full time career of working in the purebred marketing business. | BARBARA DUCKWORTH PHOT0 broadcast live over the internet. For Wright, a major adventure will come after Agribition, when he will join his friend Dorran to sell Canada’s largest racehorse event in London, Ont. They will wear tuxedoes for the first time and sell four legged critters neither know well. For Dorran, selling his first Agribition sale this year made him feel like he had arrived in the big leagues. He has big shoes to fill. His father is Steve Dorran, one of the top purebred auctioneers in North America. Ryan was interested in the business from the beginning and started to learn the ropes from mentors such as his father, grandfather Louis Latimer and uncle Bryan Latimer.


“A whole lot of my family were pretty influential,” he said. Dorran grew up showing 4-H cattle but does not own his own herd because he sees that as a conflict of interest. He was 20 years old when he worked his first event at a production sale in December at Westaskiwin, Alta. It was cold and he was nervous, but his father said he needed ring

experience if he wanted to get into the business. The next day he was hired to work the Checkers Sale, one of Canada’s largest Simmental sales. He went to auctioneer school in Missouri at age 22 and soon learned that the marketing chain was hard work and definitely not a nine to five job. He now sells 80 sales a year. He has learned to sell video sales, blend in with internet broadcasts and figure how to work a crowd to tease out a few more dollars. “I’m a pretty shy person, actually, but the more you get to know people, it’s easier to be more outgoing.” He has had to learn pedigrees, the quality of livestock and how to understand people. Being the new kid on the block has not been a deterrent and customers have been patient. “Breeders have been really receptive about trying new people, and so it has been great from that aspect. The cattle industry is the best industry in the world,” he said. He is not worried about dispersals and shrinking herds. “I think there are enough young people coming up that this thing will be fine,” he said. The business is also a large part of his social life: he has made life-long friends showing cattle and working at their sales. Dorran also met his wife, Cassie, at Agribition. She had come to one of his sales, where she bought a $14,000 Hereford heifer that she showed later. A former American Hereford queen, she moved to Alberta to be with him and now works for the Canadian Angus Association. His goal is to be a full-time auctioneer and he visits farms, contacts former customers and keeps current with their programs. “It is a good way to get out and meet the people. It is good to get your face out there.”

Goat sale prices down slightly over last year BY KAREN BRIERE REGINA BUREAU

Fifteen lots grossed $11,215 to average $747.67 in the annual Boer goat sale held during Canadian Western Agribition. Prices were softer than last year, when the average was $881.33 on the same number of lots. The high seller was Venture 2 KCF Stelia, a purebred doeling offered by Venture 2 of Steelman, Sask. It sold for $2,300 to Brian and Christine Prinz of Pryme Farms in Wooler, Ont., who bid by telephone. The top selling male was the reserve junior champion buck, Venture 2 Todor, consigned by Calico Creek Goats of Yorkton, Sask. Sheila Thackeray of Weyburn, Sask., purchased the buck for $825. The grand champion purebred

buck was Calico Creek Hot Water, which sold for $800. Reserve champion was Beat Xacteal from Beatles Boers at Southey, Sask. In the female show, Venture 2 showed the grand champion and reserve purebred doe, Twelve Acre 141X and Venture 2 KCF 5, respectively. Calico Creek showed the grand and reserve champions in the percentage doe class: Calico Creek Sequence and Spirit Kara. In the commercial classes, Kae Ronne Tsunami, exhibited by Kerry O’Donnell of Calder, Sask., was named grand champion doe. The reserve was Rockin R 2Y from Moose Jaw, Sask. Rockin R also showed the grand champion pen of three and the grand and reserve champion market kids.





Producers fear cost of gestation stall mandate BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CALGARY — Alberta pig producers say they are encouraged that their objections to mandated group sow housing seem to be gaining traction. Group sow housing was proposed in the industry’s draft code of practice, which was released last year for public comment. It called for group housing of all Canadian sows by July 1, 2024, and use of gestation stalls for only 28 days after the last breeding. The proposal caused controversy among producers because it would require expensive barn renovation, depending on the site involved. The draft code contained myriad other recommendations, but the gestation stall issue became the lightning rod for both producers and animal welfare groups. Speaking to the Alberta Pork general meeting Nov. 14, chair Frank Novak said he sees general acknowledgement of the challenges involved in making major housing changes. “Now we’re talking about trying to grandfather existing operations and the realization that there is no money and there is no willingness to try to find money that doesn’t exist to do major changes on things like sow housing,” he said. “It basically won’t happen. That’s been a message that we’ve been trying to get through to people for a long time.” Novak said the committee that is developing the draft code of practice for hogs was scheduled to meet Nov. 26 to discuss input received during the comment period and continue the process toward a final version. A final version of the code is expected by December, according to the original timeline, but the level of interest, input and additional discussion could affect the schedule. Novak said pork producers need financial assistance to change housing systems if that part of the code remains in the final version. “At the end of the day, we cannot and will not carry the freight on this one,” he said. “It needs to be a market issue. And if the retailer wants it and consumers want it, come tell us, pay us and we’ll do it. We can do it better than anyone else, but we can’t do it out of the goodness of our heart.” He said hog producers have been losing an average of $16 per pig for the last five years, and few are in a position to undertake renovation. Calgary Co-op members voted in March to buy pork only from producers who do not use gestation stalls. The change is to take effect within five years. Novak said Alberta Pork met with Co-op officials earlier this year and told them the desired pork could be supplied only if deals can be made with producers that reflect extra costs involved in providing it. “Now we’ll find out if the Co-op members really believe what their resolution said and if they’re willing to pay to have that premium product in their store.”

The Prairie Swine Centre is studying pig temperament, searching for ways to breed animals less subject to stress. |



Breeders explore pig temperament Calm, cool and collected | Pigs with passive traits get less stressed, improving meat quality BY KRISTEN MCEWEN SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Breeding pigs for passive, calm traits can increase producers’ bottom lines and reduce the stress of handling for both pig and human. Jennifer Brown of the Prairie Swine Centre near Saskatoon has studied pig temperament to find methods of determining traits so that producers can develop less stress-prone herds, lower mortality and increase meat quality. Brown’s research team created four tests to determine which pigs display the most ideal traits. Two of the tests measured active and passive traits: • The open door test measured the time it took pigs to explore a door into a new area. “You’re opening a door and they’re not sure where it goes to,” Brown said.

“The animals that are more active are more inclined to leave the pen sooner. The ones that are passive are just going to hang back.” • The novel object test isolated pigs in a small pen with three unfamiliar objects. It measured how long it took the pig to approach and contact the object, how many times it interacted with them and how frequently it moved from one object to another. “An active animal is going to be quicker to approach something unfamiliar and make contact, but it’ll move on quickly and explore multiple objects,” Brown said. “Whereas with a more passive temperament, they’re going to be slower to approach, (and when) they actually do contact something unfamiliar, they’ll spend more time exploring that object.” The other two tests measured confidence and fear in relation to humans,

t e s t i n g a p i g ’s w i l l i n g n e s s t o approach a human or remain still when a human approaches. “A confident animal is more likely to stand and then sniff your boots sort of thing when you get close to them,” Brown said. Active animals use lots of energy if they’re being transported over long periods. Passive animals conserve energy but will experience acute stress at the processing plant because they’re not willing to move, Brown said. Excess energy use results in red, soft pork. “They’ve used up their energy. Then they also experience stress when they’re going through slaughter. It’s a combination of meat quality problems. It’s all related to what’s left in the muscle after being held off feed and transported.” However, passive animals can also produce pale, soft pork if subjected to

acute stress before slaughter. Brown said animals that are managed in confinement are in competitive situations. Aggressive animals are inadvertently selected because they are doing the best competitively. This aggression can lead to problems such as tail biting. With chickens, it takes the form of cannibalism. “We need to recognize when that’s a problem and try to select for animals with a more passive temperament that are going to be less aggressive in a social situation,” she said. However, some aggression supports maternal instincts, such as when a sow protects its piglets. Brown said breeding for passive traits in combination with calm traits is the best approach when selecting pigs for temperament. Management that allows pigs to become accustomed to handling can reduce stress when they are shipped.


Pork demand fails to keep pace, slowing rebound BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU

CALGARY — An abundance of feed and improved market prices for hogs are a good combination for Alberta producers, but they don’t make things completely rosy, says the Alberta Pork chair. Frank Novak told the organization’s annual meeting Nov. 14 that the last five years of losses “wiped out the balance sheet,” and it will take about four years of $20 per pig profits to get back to the conditions of 2007. “The actual reality of the industry today is we are at the point where we are at what we hope is the end of a very long, very ugly period of losses,” Novak said in a later interview. This year’s bumper crop is expected to reduce feed prices, but those benefits won’t immediately materialize. “This is all potential future activity,” he said. “The same with the markets.


Markets look good but we’re talking about markets in the future, and so none of that cheap grain that people are talking about today is going through pigs that are going to market today. “The hole that we’ve dug is so deep, it would take several years of consistent profits like we have almost never seen, and certainly not in the last 10 years, to even begin to fill that hole back in. We’re a long ways off from being comfortable.” Novak said Alberta producers have seen average losses of $16 per pig for the last five years and equity losses of

$2,000 for every sow in production. As well, Canadian producers lost their domestic market as those in the value chain chased exports and tried to emulate the American pork industry. It allowed the Americans to ramp up their efficiency and increase their exports to Canada. “We were so busy doing other things that we weren’t paying attention, and all the people in our value chain share some responsibility,” said Novak. “Over the last 10 years, I think collectively the value chain has done a very good job of destroying the pork brand, and taking what the rest of the world, outside of North America, knows is the best protein going, and treating it like it’s an also ran and something that you buy when it goes on sale.” In his report to members, Novak said long-term revenue parity with the United States will be needed for the domestic industry to be sustainable.

However, agrifood consultant and former Maple Leaf executive Ted Bilyea said Canadian producers should aim higher and focus on providing quality pork to lucrative markets. “If you want to compete and win the game, you’d raise the bar,” said Bilyea. Canada is in a trade deficit with the U.S. on pork, a switch that occurred in the late 1990s. “We are becoming even more export dependent, but we are not the same country and we should not be playing by the same concepts.” Canadian Pork Council vice-chair Rick Bergmann said two-thirds of Canada’s pork is exported, but the U.S. remains the biggest customer. He assured producers the national body was actively fighting countryof-origin labelling in the U.S., which has cost the industry an estimated half billion dollars a year in live hog exports.





Fur repellent on this veterinarian’s Christmas wish list ANIMAL HEALTH



omeone asked me the other day what I wanted for Christmas. Rather than limit this question to my personal “like to have, but would never buy for myself ” list, I thought I would take this opportunity to describe my extensive wish list as a veterinarian. Easier diagnosis: Diagnosing conditions in animals can be hard. If I got my wish, all patients would arrive at our clinics with nice signs around their necks clearly naming their problem. For example: “I have heart failure” for a weak, lethargic dog, or “the heel of my right front hoof is very sore” for a chronically lame horse. Because our patients can’t talk to us, except those feisty, vocabulary spouting birds, we have to rely on our clinical examination, including heart rate, gum colour, temperature, pain when touched, diagnostic tests such as X-rays, blood work and most importantly, information provided from the client. Which leads me to my next wish. Histories: All clients will have a complete record of the who, what, when, where and why in terms of their animal’s problems, including dates. This might not be realistic in all settings, but behaviour provides us important clues about what is wrong. Most of our domestic animals are derived from prey species, which means threatening situations, such as a visit to a veterinary clinic, causes them to mask weaknesses at all cost. In these settings, what was obviously wrong at home mysteriously goes

away at the clinic. We learn so much about the animal by listening to the owner and asking questions about what the animal was like before we see it. Keep this in mind when chatting with your vet. You have to speak for your animal and describe what is going on to the best of your ability. Unlimited budget: We spend years studying to become veterinarians, so we usually know the steps to take to find out the diagnosis. However, finances often limit us to the most practical options. I fully recognize this is a normal and realistic reality of practice, but most of us don’t often get to send for the fancy tests, despite our accumulated

textbooks of knowledge. For Christmas, I’d like an unlimited budget to “work up” those interesting cases, find all the answers and provide the “gold standard” of care taught in veterinary school. Timely illness: Animals would not get sick between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., eliminating the need for us to be on emergency call. Disease eradication: Some diseases would simply disappear on Christmas Day. I would get an official notice from the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association letting me know that my least favourite diseases to deal with, including rabies, cancer and feedlot pneumonia in beef cattle, were eradicated.

I’d especially wish for elimination of those diseases that are really hard for me to deal with as a pathologistin-training. No more disease of the brain or spinal cord, and cattle would cease to miscarry. Fur repellent: All my clothes would miraculously repel horse, cat, dog and other critter fur. Fur on clothing is a real hazard of the profession and it would be nice for those times when we venture out in public for our career choice not to be immediately obvious. North Pole vet: Santa would hire me to be his official veterinarian. How neat would it be to travel the world in one night with the jolly man in the red suit? I’m sure there’s plenty

to do, after all: reindeer need veterinary care just as much as our more typical domestic species. I can just imagine how useful I’d be. Christmas Eve would be a flurry of activity, including suturing the occasional small cuts, monitoring recovery time from the vigorous crossPacific run and ensuring all their vaccines are up to date. I could also confirm that the multitude of crossborder paperwork was in order. As well, I might take a small biopsy of Rudolph’s nose to understand why it glows.

About 40 percent of farmland is rented and the vast majority of lease agreements are cash rental. Landlords who don't know a lot about farming are reluctant to enter into crop sharing arrangements.


1% 3%


22% How is the land rented?






Falling commodity prices could put downward pressure on land rental rates, but it will take a while before they adjust, according to a Farm Credit Canada analyst. Crop receipts are the biggest influence on rental rates. A bumper crop in Western Canada could offset slumping prices this year, but the outlook is for tighter margins over the next decade. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s long-term outlook to 2022 calls for crop prices that will be better than they were before the bull market but well off the lofty levels they have been at over the past three years. “The average price of corn for the next 10 years is (forecast at) $4.60 (per bushel),” said FCC agricultural economist James Bryan in a recent webcast. Prices at that level would squeeze crop receipts, reducing the rates landlords can charge renters. “It’s possible to see some pullback in rental rates,” he said in an interview following the webcast. “ D e p e n d i n g o n t h e a re a a n d depending on how competitive the rental market was, you might see some fallback, but not necessarily dramatically.” He said it would likely take several years for rates to fully adjust because they tend to lag well behind commodity price changes. “Rental rates seem to be sticky on

both ends,” Bryan said. “They don’t go up as fast as you might expect, but they also don’t come down as fast as (you) might expect.” Growers often sign multi-year agreements, so it takes a while to adjust to the new reality in grain markets. Rates also tend to be set at the beginning of the year, well in advance of that year’s commodity price movements. Rental rates have been climbing during the recent bull market but not nearly as dramatically as the increase in crop prices. One reason for the muted response is low interest rates, which is the other major factor that influences rental rates. The Bank of Canada hasn’t changed its overnight rate of one percent since September 2012. Low interest rates bolster land values because it makes debt more affordable, but it has the opposite effect on rental rates. Landlords are willing to accept a smaller percentage of their land value as a rate of return when interest rates drop because they have to remain competitive with alternative safe investments such as savings accounts and bonds. Interest rates are forecast to remain low for much of next year, but they will eventually rise from today’s rock bottom levels. This would increase pressure on rental rates, helping offset the downward pressure of falling crop prices. “Right now we have two factors working in different directions,” said Bryan.

Farmland rental rates likely to flatten

James Bryan, agricultural economist with Farm Credit Canada, said many landlords are far removed from agriculture. It's important renters explain what they'll be doing with the land and avoid the temptation to lowball them on rental rates because that will sabotage what could have been a long-term relationship.

Bryan said 76 to 80 percent of the rental agreements in Alberta and Saskatchewan in the last three years have been cash rental. “Definitely cash rental is the way it seems to be going,” he said. “It’s simple and it’s easy to understand.” He suspects another reason is that landowners are becoming increasingly removed from the farm and less comfortable and informed about grain markets, so they’re leery of crop sharing arrangements. The most common contract is still a one-year lease, which gives both parties the flexibility to respond to changing market conditions each year. Farmers might have the mistaken impression that the rental rate is the most important factor for a landlord.

That is not the case, according to a U.S. survey showing that factors such as trustworthiness, reputation and paying on time take precedence over the rate. Rental rates can vary widely. Saskatchewan Agriculture data from last year found that rental rates for nonfamily members in the province were $6.25 to $140 an acre. The average that year was $35.65 an acre. Bryan said determining a fair rental rate starts with the quality of the land. Is it tile drained? Are there wet spots? Will fence lines get in the way? What is the soil type? What chemicals have been used on the land recently? Does the landlord insist on a particular rotation? “That really can impact what your profit is,” he said. However, he said one factor is more important than all others when it comes to establishing a fair price. “Knowing your cost of production is absolutely, 100 percent, the most important thing that you can know to know how much you can pay for land,” said Bryan.





Lease or buy: what’s the best option?

Like rhizobia works on legumes, this works in any crop in the cells, fixing nitrogen. It’s a game changer.


leased. There is typically a buyout option for the farmer at the end of the lease term. Unlike purchasing, lease payments are deductible for tax purposes in the year paid and typically will result in a larger reduction of the farm’s taxable income. However, remember that you are not able to choose how much you can deduct for tax purposes, unlike a capital cost allowance deduction. This limits the amount of tax planning that can be done for the business. Lease payments are often less than what they would be if you financed the entire cost. Typically the lower the lease payments, the higher the buyout option at the end of the lease. This can result in better cash flows and free up more capital to help with operations during the lease term. Leasing can also reduce risk if you believe that the price to acquire the same piece of equipment will decrease in the future or if you believe the buyout option amount will be less than the market value of the equipment at that time. Many factors can affect the decision and each one should be considered. You may wish to contact a professional to ensure that your analysis is correct before making a final decision.

Leasing payments are tax deductible but at a set amount each year

Company confident in nitrogen-fixing S bacteria product Reduce fertilizer use | Azotic Technologies says the product allows the plant to fix more of its own nitrogen BY SEAN PRATT SASKATOON NEWSROOM

Canada has become a testing ground for a new nitrogen-fixing technology developed in the United Kingdom. Azotic Technologies will soon commercialize a product developed at the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Crop Nitrogen Fixation based on a strain of nitrogen-fixing bacteria found in sugar cane. The gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus bacteria lives on seeds until roots develop when applied as a seed coating through liquid inoculant or freeze-dried powder. It then works its way up the root system to colonize all of the plant’s cells. “Like rhizobia works on legumes, this works in any crop in the cells, fixing nitrogen,” said Peter Blezard, chief executive officer of Azotic, a technology company based in Chorley, England. “It’s a game changer.” The company says its N-Fix product can imbue any crop with legumetype nitrogen fixing powers. The product performed well in labs and greenhouses and was tested this year in field trials in the United Kingdom and Canada. Blezard said grass crops fixed 75 percent of their nitrogen in field trials, canola 50 percent and wheat 25 percent. He said it was a bad year for growing wheat in the United Kingdom, and researchers made the mistake of overdosing the seed with bacteria. The company intends to conduct one more year of field trials before potentially launching the product commercially in 2015. It hopes to capture a portion of the global inoculant business, which is worth an estimated $286 million annually. Azotic has granted North American distribution rights to Engage Agro, a company from Guelph, Ont., that markets crop protection and nutritional products. Engage is co-ordinating the Canadian field trials and product registration. Blezard said N-Fix could vastly reduce a farmer’s fertilizer bill. The world’s growers spend an estimated $114 billion a year applying nitrogen fertilizer to wheat, corn, canola and

rice. The company claims N-Fix can save up to 50 percent of nitrogen fertilizer use, which would have the side benefit of making farming more environmentally sustainable. “Your government is paranoid about (nitrogen) runoff as is the U.S. government. We have an answer for it,” said Blezard. Murray Hartman, a provincial oilseed specialist with Alberta Agriculture, said any product that reduces agriculture’s environmental footprint and lowers input costs is desirable. He said the early N-Fix results appear promising. However, he warned that products seldom perform as well in the real world as they do in greenhouses and controlled field trials. “We’ve had biologicals come and go before in different aspects of crop production, but they haven’t necessarily been consistent enough with their efficacy to be that useful versus their cost,” said Hartman. Biologicals can lose some of their clout when exposed to competition in the soil. Hartman also said the bacteria use energy from the plant to produce nitrogen, which can lead to reduced yields. Blezard said that isn’t the case with N-Fix technology. He said the process is efficient and no energy is lost to the crop. He said the company will use the field trial results to quantify how much nitrogen growers will save by using N-Fix on different crops, which will help it establish a price for the product. Hartman said the goal in nitrogen fixation would be to create something like a canola crop that has root nodules similar to legume plants, which supply almost all of the plant’s nitrogen needs. Seed technology companies have created plants that use nitrogen more efficiently, but he doesn’t know of any major company attempting to develop true nitrogen-fixing crops. Some work on that front is being conducted at the John Innes Centre in the United Kingdom. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently gave the centre $9.8 million to develop corn lines that can sense nitrogen-fixing soil bacteria.

hould I lease or buy my next piece of equipment? This is a common question from farmers and small business owners. Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer because the factors affecting the decision will almost never be the same. That being said, here are some things that should be considered when making the decision. Purchasing A piece of equipment becomes the property of the buyer when it is purchased and will be treated as an asset on the farm’s records. The full amount paid for the equipment is not fully deductible when paid. Instead, it is slowly deducted against the income of the farm in the form of what is called a capital cost

allowance. This can provide tax planning flexibility because the full amount of the allowance does not have to be claimed every year, allowing producers to defer the reduction to future years where they have higher income. Machinery can cost much more than it did five to 10 years ago. Fewer farmers have the capital to outright buy the equipment, and are choosing to use low interest rates to finance the purchase. Every situation is different, but financing usually requires the buyer to make a down payment and typically results in higher payments than those of a lease. Always look at all your options if you decide to finance your purchase because the rate provided by the dealership may not be the best for you.
