ISSUE DATE: APRIL 5, 1945. A story in the Western Producer lamented the low sale prices for Aberdeen-Angus bulls. The market was flooded that spring with animals brought to sale, lowering prices across the board.

Happy New Year!


ANGUS SALE IS DISCOURAGING One of the best Aberdeen-Angus bulls to be shown in Regina Bull Sale history was brought before the judge, T. Alex Edwards of Watford, Ont., last week. He was Barbarian of Craigeyrie 2nd, an April, 1943 son of Barbarian of Rosemere 147th. The sire was bought with Saskatchewan Horned Cattle Fund money from a United States breeder. Barbarian of Craigeyrie 2nd, was shown by C.G. Argue of Grenfell, and was an easy junior and grand championship bull. He was wellbalanced, deep, thick and low set, and many

breeders considered him the best bull of any breed in the Regina barn. Low prices It was a shame that this bull and several others of his breed brought a price far below their value. The grand champion sold at $400 to Pete Hesley of Griffin. Angus breeders were of the opinion that the 29 bulls sold at auction were too numerous for the buyers present, and attributed the low average price paid for them, $215.69, to this fact.

This is 90 years of your history EDITORIAL NOTEBOOK



he history of The Western Producer is almost as long as that of the prairie provinces themselves. For 90 years, the Producer has chronicled the politics, policies, advancements, crop prices, land prices, livestock prices, weather events and harvests of the Prairies’ most dominant industry. Agriculture was the first economic driver in these parts, and despite terrible droughts, untimely rains and early frosts, it remains a vital part of not only our

financial but also our cultural lives. In our anniversary year, we offer this final 2013 edition to look back, take stock and see the future. We trust it’s a good time, as the year rolls to a conclusion, to reflect on where prairie agriculture has been and where it is going. You’ll see stories on grain handling and storage, livestock genetics, the history of reworking rapeseed into canola and the ups and downs of commonly used farm chemicals. We reflect on the drivers behind farmer action: the rallies that brought producers together from across the West. We also look back at our own history, a history of producing the agricultural and rural news archive of Western Canada. There is much more to come. WP reporters worked hard at covering some of the biggest stories of the last 90 years and bringing them into a modern focus. Many of them reside in this issue, but in a continuing effort to look back, look for-

ward and inform, we will publish several more “then and now” pieces in the early editions of 2014. This is not the WP’s history. This is your history. These stories reflect on where we have been, how things have changed and where we are going … together. At The Western Producer, we are not even close to finishing the story. Times have changed as much in publishing newspapers as they have in agriculture. Today, we publish online and via cellphone notifications, as well as in print. We will continue, for many years to come. Thank you for reading The Western Producer. You are the reason for our existence, and we will grow with you in the future, as we have in the past. All the best.

HARRIS TURNER FOUNDER OF TURNER’S WEEKLY


WP’s longevity comes down to knowing its readers BY BARB GLEN LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


n the beginning, there was Turner’s Weekly, which begat The Progressive, which begat The Western Producer. With all respect for the Good Book, that’s how the farmers’ bible came into being. The newspaper is now celebrating its 90th year, having provided news to western Canadian farmers ranging from world wars to wheat prices to wooden washtubs. It is still going strong. It has outlived early competitors, shed some of its offspring, embraced the electronic age and kept constant company with its readers. Knowing its readers is the secret to the Producer’s longevity, says publisher Shaun Jessome, who has been in the paper’s top job since November 2012. “The secret is its relationship with the community it serves,” says Jessome. “I do look at it that the farming community is just one big community, which is why I love The Western Producer, because it serves it the same way a community newspaper serves its readers. It treats them with respect, it understands its readers, it understands what its readers want from it and expect from it, and it just delivers. It delivers consistently.” Jessome, originally from the Maritimes, was first acquainted with the Producer in 1991, when he managed the Whitecourt and Mayerthorpe community newspapers in Alberta. He was both impressed and chagrined, given his responsibilities for advertising sales and revenue at the two papers. “We always got the leftovers, after The Western Producer,” he recalls. “In all cases, it didn’t matter how hard we tried. Everything we got was seconds, after The Western Producer. So that’s how I got to know it. I sold against it for all those years. I looked at it with great envy … and there may

This ad was published in the Sept. 2, 1926 edition of The Western Producer. | ARCHIVAL PAGE have been the odd derogatory statement made toward it.” The days of non-complimentary remarks are gone for Jessome. He now praises the newspaper for remaining relevant to its audience even as the agricultural industry has changed. It has survived when many major newspapers, tasked with providing general news and serving many masters, have fallen on difficult times. “It’s not a niche product,” Jessome says of the Producer. “It’s a general purpose newspaper within a niche industry. And as the niche industry became bigger and bigger and bigger and more profitable … The Western Producer was able to keep up with that, so it always

remained relevant.” Retaining relevance is the newspaper’s ongoing task. As the agricultural industry has become more sophisticated and information delivery more technical, the Producer has put resources into its website and other electronic data delivery. Its other challenge is the evershrinking number of farmers, which translates into an ever-shrinking subscription total. Jessome notes the Producer still serves the same number of acres that it always has, but at a paid circulation of 46,700, its weekly press run is a fraction of totals at its peak in 1953, when 157,000 copies were distributed weekly. However, visitors to the Producer website continue to increase. Visits

in the October to November twomonth period in 2013 were up 99 percent over the same period in 2012, Jessome says. The shrinking circulation trend is nothing new. Previous publishers have watched it, explained it and survived it. One of those was Allan Laughland, publisher from the mid-1980s until 2001. “People could never figure out how we could make the business work with the size of subscription base that we had,” Laughland recalls. He, too, believes the paper’s agricultural concentration ensured its survival. “The focus of the paper when I got there, and I thought it was the right one, was always to be looking at the interests of farmers. Politics played a much higher profile in the paper’s activities in those days than it does now,” Laughland said. “It was the place where people wanted to be updated on what sorts of political issues affecting farmers were front and centre and who was saying what about them. That was the place to find out.” Finding out — that has always been part of the newspaper’s credo. One of its founders, Harris Turner, laid that groundwork when he established Turner’s Weekly. A First World War veteran, Turner was blinded in a battle at Ypres, Belgium. It didn’t deter him from returning to Saskatoon and teaming up with Patrick Waldron, another war veteran and former newspaperman. In its first issue, Turner had this to say about the paper’s goal. “It is our intention to so strongly entrench ourselves in the estimation of the reading public of Canada that this paper will become one of the permanent forces in the Dominion making for the common good. “We have no alliance with any party, any organization, or any set of men. It is our opinion that our existence depends on our independence, and that the moment we be-

come limited to the expression of views of a narrow-purposed group we deserve to lose public confidence and public support.” Turner, who was also an independent member of the Saskatchewan legislature at the time, made a journalistic success of the weekly, but by 1920, it had run out of funds. Three years later, he and Waldron launched The Progressive, the predecessor to The Western Producer. The paper took its name from the Progressive political movement, supported at the time by the Saskatchewan Grain Growers Association. Amid widespread efforts to establish a system of grain pooling in Saskatchewan, a vehicle was needed to explain the philosophy and progress of the campaign. The Progressive fit the bill. Establishment of the prairie pools eventually transformed the farming industry in Canada. In a history written by former Producer editor Keith Dryden, he recounts the Progressive’s editorial policy, fashioned during discussions between Turner, Waldron, the SSGA and the Saskatchewan Co-operative Wheat Producers, also known as the wheat pool. These two groups provided the main support for the paper, which was distributed to all those who became wheat pool members. “Turner, managing editor, and Waldron, as editor, made it clear they wanted to present both sides of the story in the news columns and they would go on advancing the cause of farmers on their editorial page. “Farm leaders of the day were suspicious of advertisers, fearing news policy might be influenced by corporations buying ads. However, the editors pointed out that advertising hadn’t inhibited their writings in the past and if the publication was going to survive it needed revenue.” So began a relationship with readers and advertisers that has continued for 90 years.

A FEW COMPANIES OWN MANY ASSETS. The number of farmer-owned elevators is a fraction of what it once was, and with one exception, grain export terminals are controlled by large grain handling companies. | BY BRIAN CROSS, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


Grain handling and storage a big, big business


s farmer-controlled facilities go, the grain export terminals that Saskatchewan Pool Elevators Ltd. operated in Port Arthur, Ont., represented a significant group of assets. The date was Oct. 26, 1933, and the item that appeared on Page 24 of The Western Producer was a notice thanking Saskatchewan farmers for their ongoing support and the role they played in building what was arguably Western Canada’s largest and most efficient grain handling network. “Saskatchewan farmers now own as well as operate the whole of their system of country elevators, 1,067 in number,” the 1933 notice stated. “Besides, they own four of the five terminals which they are operating on the Great Lakes. Such an achievem e nt w a s ma d e p o s s i b l e o n l y through the steady patronage of farmers throughout this province.” The company, also known as Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, had grown rapidly in 10 years to become what was widely viewed as the most powerful grain handling company in Canada. It had been formed in 1924 and soon after became the largest cooperative marketing organization in the world, according to the Saskatchewan Archives Board. A flurry of grain elevator construction occurred across the province following the pool’s formation. A pool elevator was a common sight at almost every town across the province, and some communities had two or three pool facilities. In August 1926, the Pool bought the Co-operative Elevator Co. and its assets for $11 million. It made a final payment on those assets in August 1932, bringing under pool control a debt-free, farmer-owned grain handling network consisting of more than 1,000 country elevators and four export terminals at Port Arthur, better known today as Thunder Bay. One of the final pieces added to the Sask Pool network was Pool Terminal 4, a grain export terminal that had total storage capacity of more than 6.5 million bushels. In a nutshell, Saskatchewan farmers owned land, grain elevators, export terminals and an unmatched level of customer loyalty: all the key elements of a successful vertically integrated grain company. A lot has changed over the past 80 years. The number of farmer-owned elevators is a fraction of what it once was, and with one exception, grain export terminals are controlled by large grain handling companies. Today, 14 grain terminals are located west of Soo Locks, including six at Thunder Bay, one at Churchill, Man., one at Prince Rupert, B.C., and six at Vancouver.

Today’s bulk grain handling system is controlled mostly by a few large, international companies. | FILE PHOTO Of those, Alliance Grain Terminal in Vancouver is jointly owned by six prairie grain companies, four of which are farmer controlled grain companies. The owners of Alliance include Paterson Grain, Parrish and Heimbecker, Weyburn Inland Terminal, North West Terminal, Prairie West Terminal and Great Sandhills Terminal. Alliance has a storage capacity of 102,000 tonnes, or 4.6 percent of Canada’s total terminal elevator capacity. The facility, formerly owned by Agricore United, was acquired by the new ownership group after the federal competition bureau ordered AU to sell the facility in 2002. So what happened to farmer-owned assets in the Canadian grain industry, and how has the loss of farmer ownership affected Canadian grain producers? Terry Boehm, former president of the National Farmers Union, said it is unlikely that farmers will ever again control such a significant portion of the bulk handling system. In an industry that is now controlled almost exclusively by large private companies and multinational agribusinesses, it is difficult to imagine how farmers could regain anything beyond a minor ownership interest.

“The most unfortunate element of this story is that the very assets that farmers built and financed are now being operated by companies that are seeking to make profits off of farmers,” Boehm said. “It will be very difficult for farmers to challenge the economic might of these players today … but it’s not impossible.” Boehm said it is regrettable that prairie farmers lost control of the assets they financed. Poor management and unmanageable debt loads led inevitably to the loss of farmer equity, he added. “I think that the biggest thing that went wrong was that the management of the pool elevator system lost contact with farmers and really abandoned co-operative principles in their headlong rush to become Cargill North,” Boehm said. Managers adopted a strategy that involved centralization and the construction of new assets at key locations on high volume rail lines. However, the co-operatives incurred significant debt during the push for modernization. That, combined with the erosion of farmer loyalty, was Sask Pool’s death knell, Boehm said. Gerrid Gust, chair of the Western

Canadian Wheat Growers Association, offered a different perspective, suggesting that competition in the grain handling industry is preferable to a non-competitive environment, even if farmers themselves owned most of the assets. “Our biggest concern is competition,” said Gust. “Whether it’s farmer owned terminals, private money or foreign money, as many different options as farmers can have is preferable.” Gust said it isn’t entirely accurate to say farmer equity was lost. He said many farmers with equity in farmer co-operatives realized significant financial gains when the pool and other farmer-owned entities became publicly traded companies. “Every farmer had equity in those entities and everyone had a chance to sell that equity for a price that they deemed it was worth,” he said. “Some of that (equity) went down to zero, but some guys did … really well on their shares of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool especially.” The addition of other farmer-owned assets to today’s bulk handling system would further enhance the competitive environment, Gust said. However, farmer investments in the future will likely involve producers buying shares in publicly traded companies, he added. The skills and knowledge required to buy grain, manage logistics and sell bulk shipments to overseas buyers are different from the skills required to produce grain, he said. Norm Hall, president of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan, said farmers have attempted to take control of their industry whenever it has taken a turn for the worse or when farmer interests are ignored. In some cases, companies leave an industry when margins are too tight and profits are insufficient, leaving farmers to provide a service for themselves. “The three prairie pools and UGG (United Grain Growers) were formed when the big grain companies of the day were taking advantage of farmers on grade, dockage, weights, or price, or all of the above,” said Hall. “At that time, there was no recourse to protect farmers, so they did what they had to, banded together to bring sanity and transparency to the industry. The perceived need for the ownership of the system seems to have faded, even some of the farmer owned inland terminals that were fought so hard for in the ’80s and ’90s, and partially funded by government dollars, are being sold to the multinationals.… With the big three in Canada now being Viterra (Glencore), Pioneer and Cargill and … changes to the Canada Grains Act, the Canadian Grain Commission and the CWB, the question that comes to mind (is) will history repeat itself? Time will tell.”

ISSUE DATE: JAN. 1, 1970. The Canadian Wheat Board came under fire amid allegations it had lost export sales of rapeseed because of insufficient supplies. The president of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool took to the front page of The Western Producer to defend the CWB and its rapeseed export program.

MUST ABIDE BY MARKETING RULES NAICAM, Sask. — Hon. Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board, had some hard things to say about the grain marketing situation, and also had some hopes and hints for the future as he spoke to about 250 farmers gathered at a meeting Dec. 22 sponsored by the Naicam and District Board of Trade. He warned farmers that if they wanted orderly marketing they would have to obey the rules or suffer the penalties. He said those farmers who broke Canadian Wheat Board regulations by bootlegging wheat at fire sale prices, by falsifying permit books, using other farmers’ quotas or running a plow over barren land to inflate cultivated acreage figures or in any other way “were stealing money” from the rest who obeyed the rules.

CRITICISM OF RAPESEED MARKETING DESCRIBED BY TURNER AS ‘UNFAIR’ REGINA — There is an apparent lack of understanding of regulations that govern the purchase and shipment of rapeseed and it needs to be corrected, according to E.K. Turner, president of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. The Pool president noted that in recent weeks there has been criticism of the rapeseed marketing system. “Statements have been made which are misleading,” he contended. “If the facts were clear to everyone, it would be understood why the criticism is unfair.” Mr. Turner said the basic point to remember is that rapeseed is defined as a grain under the Canadian Wheat Board Act. That being the case, its movement is subject to regulations enforced by the Canadian Wheat Board. On Aug. 1, the Wheat Board issued instructions to all grain companies that there would be a five-bushel per seeded acre quota for rapeseed. It also said that producers could deliver the seed to any delivery point selected by them at which space for rapeseed was available. With an estimated one million acres seeded in Saskatchewan, the quote provided about five million bushels for purchase by anyone properly licensed.

THE EVOLUTION OF CANOLA. A crop that got its start as a minor industrial oilseed is now a major player in vegetable oil markets and is by far the biggest money maker in Canadian agriculture. | BY SEAN PRATT, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


You’ve come a long way, baby


apeseed first hit its stride in the 1940s, helping out Canada’s war effort. “It was cultivated very extensively as a marine lubricant during the middle of the Second World War,” Ag-West Bio Inc. president Wilf Keller said during a recent presentation. The market evaporated abruptly when the war ended in 1945. “The acreage declined substantially. In fact, in 1950 it was less than 500 acres,” said Keller. “However, people who had worked with this crop realized that rapeseed had potential for growth in Western Canada. There was a need for a domestic vegetable oil in Western Canada.” Public breeding programs started working on the crop and by 1954 the first Canadian-bred rapeseed cultivar was introduced. Researchers realized they needed to develop lines of rapeseed that were low in erucic acid and glucosinolates, two undesirable traits for human and animal health. They began an extensive process of looking for mutant lines that were low in both of those attributes. In 1974, the University of Manitoba released the first double zero line of rapeseed, called Tower. By 1978, the Rapeseed Association of Canada coined the term “canola” to refer to the double zero lines. The association later became the Canola Council of Canada. The next revolution in canola came in 1995 with the limited release of Liberty Link and Roundup Ready canola. By 1997, herbicide tolerant lines were grown extensively in Western Canada. Today, more than 95 percent of the canola grown is herbicide tolerant varieties, said Maurice Delage, a farmer from Indian Head, Sask., who along with Keller played a pivotal role in developing Liberty Link canola. “Farmers have adopted this technology very, very quickly because it was very obvious in the beginning that there was a strong economic

Some producers think canola yields will experience the same exponential growth curve as U.S. corn did following the introduction of hybrid lines in 1930. | FILE PHOTO incentive to do so,” he said during a recent presentation. “It was very difficult to grow canola because there was no broad spectrum weed control in that crop.” The second major breakthrough came eight years later with the commercial introduction of the first synthetic hybrid canola lines. “This was a quantum leap because it took an open pollinated crop into a whole new era,” said Delage. “From one day to the next, essentially, you were able to jump yields by 25 to 30 percent.” Delage said hybrids paved the way for a crushing industry that will soon be able to process 10 million tonnes of canola. This year’s crop is estimated at 16 to 17 million tonnes. “This industry could not have existed this way without biotechnology,” he said. “No one was going to invest in these crushing plants unless they were assured a supply, and the

only way that supply came to market is with the development of hybrids.” Canola delivered $8.23 billion in farm cash receipts in 2012, nearly doubling wheat’s $4.18 billion contribution that year. Rick White, president of the Canadian Canola Growers Association, said farmers have grown to love the crop. “When wheat prices were down, canola was the money maker, canola was the cash crop and farmers fortunately had that as a viable option.” Growers have become adept at growing the crop. They like how it fits into their rotations, the herbicide options, the reduced tillage and the lower input costs, said White. However, not every farmer is enamored with the way the industry has evolved, including Terry Boehm, former president of the National Farmers Union, who grows non-genetically modified canola on his farm near Allan, Sask.

“Where it is really having a negative impact is the price of seed and the model that has been established that doesn’t allow farmers to save and reuse seed,” he said. “I would say that farmers are paying probably three times more at a minimum than they should be for seed, plus they’re buying it every year.” Organic growers complain that the prevalence of GM canola and the inability to keep it from contaminating nearby fields has taken a crop out of their rotation. There have also been problems with volunteer canola and resistant weeds. As well, some speculate that canola producers have pushed rotations as far as they can and that acreage is maxing out. White doesn’t believe that to be the case because researchers are developing traits that could expand the boundaries for the crop. Drought tolerant canola could pull it

into southwestern Saskatchewan and southeastern Alberta, and early maturing lines could push acres further north. White said the Regina Plains area is a good example of what the future might hold. “When I look back a decade, I never saw any yellow fields out there. This past summer — yellow fields everywhere.” As well, he said the sky is the limit when it comes to yields. The canola council recently released its 2013 performance trial results, and it is hard to find a variety that isn’t in the 70 to 100 bushel per acre range across all three season zones. White thinks that is the tip of the iceberg. “I believe there is probably more yield that can be extracted with further hybridization in the future.” He thinks canola yields will experience the same exponential growth curve as U.S. corn did following the introduction of hybrid lines in 1930.

ISSUE DATE: DEC. 14, 1950. Initially developed for military use during the Second World War, 2,4-D was the first successful selective herbicide used to control broadleaf weeds in North America and its use by Canadian farmers was widespread within a few years of its commercial release in 1946.

EXCERPT | DEC. 14, 1950

REACTION OF WEEDS TO 2,4-D Here is the latest information on the use of 2,4-D and nd he other weed control chemicals, as compiled by the nation’s leading weed control experts at a recent meeting of the Western Canada Weed Control Conference at Regina. Kinds and amounts of chemical to be used on various types of weed, together with information on treatment of weeds in growing crops, have been set out here for the guidance of Western farmers. The Western Producer suggests you clip this column and check your 1951 weed control program against its recommendations. Amounts 2,4-D Acid Per Acre Suggested amounts of 2,4-D Acid per acre to use as a spray on cereals or flax to control weeds in Western Canada: For Susceptible Annual Weeds — In cereals, use 3 1/2 to seven ounces of amine, or three to five ounces of ester acid per acre. In flax, use three to five ounces of amine, or 2 1/2 to four ounces of ester acid per acre. For Intermediate Annual Weeds — In cereals, use five to 10 ounces of amine, or four to eight ounces of ester acid per acre. In flax, use four to eight ounces of amine, or three to six ounces of ester acid per acre. For Perennial Weeds —(Top growth control). In cereals, use five to 10 ounces of amine, or four to eight ounces of ester acid per acre. In flax, use four to eight ounces of amine, or three to six ounces of ester acid per acre. (Where 2,4-D is applied as a dust it is usually advisable to use from one to 1 1/2 ounces more acid per acre than recommended above.) When to use 2,4-D in Growing Crops Cereal Crops should be treated as soon as they have reached the three-leaf stage or when the leaves are six inches long. Grain may also be treated until the early shot-blade (boot) stage. Pre-harvest treatment can be done after the crop has passed the flowering stage.

Technotill System handles heavy crop residue When it came time to replace an older air drill, Jason and Allan Ray wanted a seeding system that could handle crop residue with accurate seed placement on their northwest Saskatchewan farm. After studying the market and comparing equipment in their own on-farm trial, the Rays opted for a system that combined Flexi-Coil 820 cultivators with the Technotill Seeding System. “I had looked at the Technotill system a few times and my first thought was ‘it just can’t work; it is too simple’,” says Ray, who with his father Allan, crops about 8000 acres at

780-352-9890 Wetaskiwin, AB

Meota, north of North Battleford. “But it does an excellent job in a wide range of conditions. With the set up I have now I won’t need to look at replacing seeding equipment for a long time.” Not only does the system handle crop residue, but the accurate seed placement system allows him to get excellent seed germination and high canola yields with reduced seeding rates. “The first year we just wanted to see how it worked so we bought an older Flexi-Coil 800 cultivator set it at 15 inch row spacing and attached the Technotill Seeding System,” says Ray. “We seeded canola and made a side- by-side comparison with the Flexi-Coil 5000. That year we saw at least a three bushel per acre yield improvement with Technotill and that convinced us it was the way to go.” The next year he bought a new 61 foot FlexiCoil 820 he equipped with the Technotill Seeding

system, set on 15 inch spacing, just for canola. And the following year a 63 foot 820, set on 10 inch row spacing with Technotill, used for cereals. Ray places liquid phosphorus right in the seed row, with the rest of the liquid fertilizer blend placed just to the side and above the seed row For the canola seed drill he uses a pull ahead liquid fertilizer tank followed by the Flexi-Coil cultivator. He mounted a Flexi-Coil 320 seed tank on the hitch of the cultivator, which distributes seed to the manifolds on the seeding unit. “It makes for a very simple seeding system without the need for extra tanks in the unit,” says Ray. And seed distribution can be adjusted in quarter pound increments. Along with wider row spacing, Ray also targets a 3 ½ to 4 pound per acre canola seeding

rate. It’s a lower rate than recommended by most canola specialists, but with good seed-to-soil contact and good germination, Ray says it produces excellent yield results. His canola program in 2013 produced yields ranging from 50 to 62 bushels per acre. “I can’t say the Technotill Seeding System is any better but it sure stands side by side with any other system on the market,” says Ray. “For our operation it consistently does a great job, I have been able to seed on days with this equipment when I wouldn’t have been able to with other systems, the Technotill System costs less than other systems, and it is simple and built to last. I know in just looking at some other systems out there you buy them new and then in three years they need to be replaced. What I have now is going to be working well for years.”





A HOT TOPIC. It has been around for more than 75 years and has killed billions of weeds, but 2,4-D remains a highly controversial herbicide. | BY ROBERT ARNASON, BRANDON BUREAU

Researchers say 2,4-D will be around for decades because it remains an effective tool to kill troublesome weeds. | FILE PHOTO


Will 2,4-D overcome its bad publicity?


ast spring, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a postponement of its decision on whether to approve corn and soybean varieties that are tolerant of 2,4-D. The department said it received more than 8,200 comments on the potential impact of this new technology. It also received petitions signed by more than 400,000 people, mostly opposing 2,4-D tolerant crops. In comparison, 500 individuals and institutions submitted comments regarding the USDA’s review of corn and soybean varieties that tolerate dicamba. Dean Riechers, a University of Illinois weed science professor, said the intense reaction to 2,4-D tolerance is mostly explained by hostility to genetically modified technology. Nonetheless, unfairly or not, Riechers said 2,4-D will always be linked to one of the most notorious chemicals in recent history — Agent Orange. The U.S. military used the mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T as a defoliant

during the Vietnam War to expose the location of enemy troops. As noted on the American Cancer Society website, studies showed that 2,4,5-T caused birth defects in lab animals. Subsequent studies on Vietnam veterans and lab tests suggested a link between Agent Orange and several types of cancer, including soft tissue sarcoma and Hodgkin’s disease, the society said. Consequently, the Centre for Food Safety and other environmental organizations launched campaigns against corn with tolerance to 2,4-D, which they dubbed “Agent Orange Corn”. Organizations such as Food & Water Watch have said 2,4-D tolerant corn could be dangerous “to eat because … 2,4-D is known to cause skin sores, liver damage and sometimes death in animals.” Dow AgroSciences, which developed corn and soybean varieties that tolerate 2,4-D and glyphosate, has branded the technology as Enlist. In a 2012 statement, it said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

has repeatedly reviewed the safety of 2,4-D and found it poses “a reasonable certainty of no harm.” “EPA announced in 2004 that it had not found a link between 2,4-D and cancer, after a detailed 17-year evaluation, which included the input of third party health and safety experts,” Dow noted. As well, the company said the health controversies surrounding Agent Orange are associated with a contaminant in 2,4,5-T, a herbicide that hasn’t been used for 25 years. Given the intense focus on 2,4-D tolerant corn and soybeans, the upcoming USDA decision on this technology will be highly controversial. Weed scientists have also criticized stacked herbicide tolerance, claiming it will only exacerbate the explosion of herbicide resistant weeds. “It’s just another way of delaying the inevitable,” said Neil Harker, an Agriculture Canada weed scientist in Lethbridge. “What you do by stacking technology is you get a reprieve for a few

years and then (you) eventually select for multiple resistance.” Riechers said weeds will likely develop resistance to 2,4-D, but farmers have few options. “There are fields (in the U.S. south) with Palmer Amaranth that flat out can’t be controlled anymore. The short-term solution is to mix glyphosate with either dicamba or 2,4-D,” he said. “It’s not going to be a long-term fix because at some point the weeds will become resistant. But, in my opinion, if you do nothing there are going to be fields (with) Palmer Amaranth that prevent farmers from growing any crops on it.” Riechers said 2,4-D will be around for decades because it remains an effective tool to kill troublesome weeds. “I don’t think we’re going to burn it out and stop using it. The same with atrazine, 2,4-D and glyphosate. They still control a lot of weeds.” The USDA is expected to decide on 2,4-D tolerant corn and soybeans in 2014.

QUEBEC AND 2,4-D: In 2006, laws came into effect in Quebec effectively banning the cosmetic use of 2,4-D. To justify the ban, the Quebec government said the herbicide was a possible carcinogen. In response, Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturer of 2,4-D, launched a lawsuit against Canada’s federal government, claiming Quebec’s ban wasn’t based on scientific evidence and contravened the North American Free Trade Agreement. The case was settled in 2011, when Quebec agreed to a statement that “products containing 2,4-D do not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment, provided that the instructions on their label are followed.” Quebec continues to ban the cosmetic use of 2,4-D but the settlement may affect future bans or claims that 2,4-D causes cancer.





ISSUE DATE: MAY 22, 1980. Droughts have always been the worst of times and farmers have struggled to manage through many of them since the West was settled.

EXCERPT | MAY 22, 1980


If there is no rain by the end of May, the long-feared Prairie-wide drought will be a reality. Agricultural observers from the three Prairie provinces say the dry conditions caused by nine months of below-average precipitation will create a “crisis” on pasture and seeded land if clear skies persist until the end of the month. Homer Frederickson, supervisor of Saskatchewan’s community pastures, says the provincial government is delaying the spring filling of the numerous community pastures as long as possible in hopes of early rains. He says the growth on the provincial pastures has been slow but, so far, the drinking water hasn’t been affected. Even if rain doesn’t come, the pastures will be opened soon but without moisture it is doubtful they will support many cattle for long. “We will continue to operate as normally as we can for as long as we can but if we don’t get rain that might not be very long.” Frederickson said the community pastures will be filled to capacity and cattle will be held “to the absolute end” in hopes of saving farmers’ pasture for the latter part of the summer. Gary Jones, a cattleman in the Crane Valley, Sask. area, southwest of Regina, said his area and the southeast area of Alberta are about two weeks away from forgetting about an average hay crop if rain doesn’t come.

THE CONSTANT THREAT. Researchers are investigating the cyclical nature of dry and wet periods, but the wild card in predicting another drought is climate change. | BY KAREN BRIERE, REGINA BUREAU


Science and experience help prepare for future


t might be hard for farmers who have been coping with flooding for the past few years to imagine dealing with drought, but that day is coming. Scientists just can’t say exactly when. Drought has been a major threat since agricultural production began on the Prairies. The region is typically dry and often affected by regional drought, but it has seen major widespread droughts, particularly in 1931, 1961, 1988, 2001 and 2002. David Sauchyn, a geographer and senior researcher at the Prairie Adaptation Research Collaborative in Regina, said the best guess is that the next major drought will occur late in the next decade. The wild card is climate change. Research has already identified wet and dry cycles since long before

people decided to farm the Prairies. Sauchyn and others have examined about 8,000 tree ring samples that clearly show those periods. “We’ve got a pretty clear idea of what the cycles have been for the last 1,000 years, so if we just project into the future, then that’s what it suggests,” Sauchyn said. “But extrapolation is a pretty nasty game because it’s happening in a changing climate.” The wet and dry cycles have tended to run in 15-year periods, which Sauchyn said means the region is due for a minor drought within a couple of years. “We’re probably not going to get a devastating drought for a few years,” he said. The period after the 1930s until about the mid-1970s was characterized by wet and dry periods. The driest times tended to be individual years, such as 1961.

However, there were more dry years after the mid-1970s. “We get these fairly long periods of about 25, 30 years in which drought is pretty common and then it’s not very common at all,” Sauchyn said. “About 10 years ago we entered into a period in which drought probably isn’t going to be that common for a while, but that doesn’t prevent us from having a really dry season or even a dry year, but two or three or four dry years in a row? Probably not for a while.” The difficulty with predicting what will happen on the Prairies is the natural variability in the system. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to swing by 15 degrees or more within days. For that reason, the region will be among the last to notice the effects of climate change. Sauchyn said places where climate is constant easily notice a one degree change. “Here, a one degree change

is hilarious,” he said. So, even though people know the climate is changing — yes, warming overall — and the consequences will include drought and a lack of water, it’s hard for people to separate that idea from the natural variability that has always occurred. Those who lived through significant drought know how bad it can be. The fear now is a drought that lasts longer than one or two years in a warming climate. “What if we get a 20-year drought like the 1850s and 1860s … or the 1790s, or the 1720s,” Sauchyn said. “We know these droughts pretty well now because we’ve been collecting lots of information about them from trees and from historical documents. “They were much worse than the 1980s, the 1930s. And it’s bound to reoccur, and when it does it’s going to be in a climate that’s much warmer

than 200 years ago or 300 years ago.” Sauchyn is currently mid-way through a five-year drought project that includes study areas in southwestern Saskatchewan, southeastern Alberta and several South American countries. The research included stationing graduate students in small communities within the areas to talk to producers about their experiences. Four students conducted 170 interviews in and around Rush Lake and Shaunavon in Saskatchewan and Taber and Pincher Creek in Alberta. The scientific research will be combined with the stories on the ground to help prepare for the future. “If the science says (a) 10-year drought (is coming), that will take a lot of adaptation of government programs and policies,” Sauchyn said. “That’s beyond the capacity of individual producers.”

then EXCERPT | DECEMBER 30, 1965


Gaines, a soft white winter pastry wheat at as from the United States which was is licensed for production in Canada this ic year, is to be replaced in the Pacific dNorthwest by a superior variety, according to a report from Washington. es, Nugaines, a sister selection of Gaines, or with equal yielding ability but superior en milling quality and test weight, has been released to certified U.S. seed growers in nd the states of Washington, Idaho and se Oregon. It will take two years to increase the present supply of 250 bushels of foundation seed to meet the seed requirements for the 3,500,000 U.S. acres planted to Gaines in 1965.


CASH RECEIPTS HIT NEW HIGH Canadian farmers’ cash receipts from farming operations hit a record $2,659,400,000 in the first nine months of this year, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported last week. DBS pointed out that the figure was gross — not counting the farmer’s cost of production. Receipts were up 5.4 percent from the same period of 1964. The DBS figures included cash from the sale of farm products. Canadian Wheat Board payments on previous year’s crops, cash advances on farm-stored grains in western Canada, and deficiency payments made by the Agricultural Stabilization Board. Most of the 5.4 percent increase was the result of higher Wheat Board payments out of funds earned on the sale of earlier crops. There were also higher returns from potatoes, cattle, hogs and dairy products.


ISSUE DATE: DECEMBER 30, 1965. Agriculture Canada faced a decision: whether or not to license a new winter wheat variety that would replace Gaines, a high-yielding variety popular with cattle producers but that performed poorly in northern climates.





THE RELUCTANT CROP. CWB officials are quick to promote the agronomic and environmental benefits of winter wheat, which promotes biodiversity and spreads out workload. Their biggest challenge has been grower reluctance to seed in the busy fall season, and an ever growing prairie canola crop, with later maturing dates, has made that window even smaller. | BY DAN YATES, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


New winter wheats offer feed, milling potential


he two million acres of prairie farmland seeded to winter wheat this fall pale in comparison to the tens of millions of acres dedicated to the crop in the United States. However, the number shows significant growth from a few decades ago, when a few hundred thousand acres were grown in Canada, mostly for feed. Since then, breeding efforts have allowed for the crop to creep up from the Pacific Northwest and across the Prairies. Officials say new opportunities are also opening up to market the crop. “If I look at the acreage of, say durum, which when you look at is quite limited in terms of where it can be produced, I don’t see why we can’t have winter wheat on the same amount of acres,” said Brian Beres, an agronomist with Agriculture Canada in Lethbridge.

Almost five million acres were seeded to durum this year. “There’s so many benefits that can be exploited from winter wheat over some of the other wheat classes that I think you’re starting to get some of the bigger players behind winter wheat,” said Beres. Winter wheat acres spiked in the mid-1980s at more than one million, with more than 880,000 seeded in Saskatchewan alone in 1986. A large crop failure, winterkill and a stem rust outbreak in the mid-1980s dampened enthusiasm and acres fell dramatically. Funding, breeding lag times and issues with kernel visual distinguishability requirements also hurt the crop. Today, winter wheat cultivars are high yielding with good disease resistance. Quality has also improved for milling purposes. Concerns about winterkill are reduced by seeding into stubble. Acres have varied over the last

decade but have shown steady growth in recent years. After taking over the University of Saskatchewan’s breeding program at the Crop Development Centre in the early 1970s, Brian Fowler helped introduce more than two dozen varieties of winter wheat, including CDC Falcon. The last variety from his winter wheat breeding program, which closed a decade ago, is coming online now. That variety, CDC Chase, is a highyielding hard red winter wheat eligible for grading in the Canada Western Red Winter wheat class. CDC Falcon, meanwhile, is moving to the Canada Western General Purpose class next year because of low protein content. “In Manitoba, there’s going to be a major change with the favourite variety no longer being a milling wheat,” said Jake Davidson, executive director of Winter Cereals Canada. “It’s going to take a couple of years

to adjust, but I think you’re going to see it very much segregated into those that grow for themselves and are happy and those that want to have an opportunity to make that extra dollar that are going to be heading for the Emersons, the Moats … to attempt to go for that top dollar. The best farmers always want to grow the best crop. Not many people deliberately go for feed.” Beres believes too many CWRS and CPS crops are produced on the Prairies. “You don’t find too many multipurpose end uses out of a single variety.” He pointed out winter wheat’s potential in feed, ethanol and milling markets. “Even some of these newer winter wheats are developing a quality profile that’s not really that far off a CWRS anyway,” he said. “I don’t think we’re going to upset the marketing environment by switching, say, CPS acres over to win-

ter wheat, for example, or displacing some of those CWRS areas that are consistently not developing or not producing CWRS No.1 anyway.” Agriculture Canada’s breeding efforts are now focused at its research centre in Lethbridge, but funding for wheat programs is improving with new public-private partnerships, said Fowler. Private companies with breeding programs in northern U.S. states may now eye prairie growers following the demise of the CWB single desk, he added. “If you look at the pedigrees of the winter wheat varieties that were successful and the ones that really caused the increase in productivity, they all have a very strong U.S. component in the pedigree,” said Fowler. “Really, what we did was to put cold hardiness into those varieties.” He said he expects to see new opportunities to release varieties with different quality characteristics.

ISSUE DATE: MAY 31, 1951. Livestock producers were looking for ways to improve herd management and for answers to common health issues.

EXCERPT | MAY 31, 1951

CORRECT PLACING RANGE SALT DUMP IS IMPORTANT Livestock provided with adequate salt supplies correctly located on the range, are easier to handle, more contented, healthier and freer from disease and make better gains. The number of salt grounds needed depends on the topography of the range land, the number and kind of stock kept and other factors. Animals cannot go long distances for salt or water if satisfactory use is to be made of the range. If the forage is uniform and the topography level or slightly rolling, salt grounds two miles apart may be entirely satisfactory. One mile apart is often more satisfactory and even closer is better if the range is particularly rough.

PINE NEEDLES CAUSE PREGNANT COWS TO ABORT Abortion in beef cattle, long believed to be caused solely by brucellosis infection, can also be brought on by eating of western yellow pine needles. This was discovered by the federal range experiment station at Kamloops. Dr. Tom Willis, station director, told the annual conference of B.C. Academy of Science that the station, somewhat skeptically, undertook the experiment to find out if there was anything to the pine needle theory held by some ranchers. One of his assistants, Alan McDonald, detailed the experiment to the conference, and he reported that pregnant cows fed pine needles lost about 75 percent of their calves, by abortion or by death before or after birth, and that the check lot lost none. All were double-tested for brucellosis.

DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES. The future of livestock management will be high-tech, involving computer capacity and genomics and bringing potentially significant benefits. | BY BARBARA DUCKWORTH, CALGARY BUREAU


Genetic technology transforms beef, dairy sectors


arlier this year, the McKinsey Global Institute published a list of 12 disruptive technologies it believes could transform life, business and the economy. Included on the list were improved internet and computer capacity as well as genomics. The economics research firm estimated genomics could have a potential value to agriculture and human health of nearly $8 trillion between now and 2025. For scientists, the ability to explore life at its most basic level has resulted in significant benefits to animal health, breeding and public health because of the development of better vaccines. Researchers have gone from examining specimens under the microscope to using super powerful computers that analyze the building blocks of life. There have been few major break-

throughs in livestock research that changed the industry overnight. Rather, there has been a gradual accumulation of knowledge to improve animal selection, health and husbandry. However, the progress of genetic technology is comparable to what happened with computers, when the world transformed from using clumsy DOS units to affordable smartphones. “In 15 years we went from luggable laptops to iPhones we hold in our pocket,” said beef researcher John Basarab of Alberta Agriculture and Livestock Gentec. “That kind of progress is what I see is going to go on in the beef industry,” he said. “It is already going on in the dairy industry. That is what I see as disruptive technology. It is really going to change the way in which the beef industry is structured.” Science may be moving at a rapid

pace, but it still takes time, said Agriculture Canada beef researcher Tim McAlister. “You don’t have too many eurekas. It is usually a number of small incremental steps,” he said. “Most scientists go through their career without having an incident like that.” However, massive computing power and the internet have brought the small community of livestock researchers together to share information at an almost unheard of rate. “The application of those technologies to information generation is instantaneous. The application of those technologies to real on-farm changes in practices takes a longer period of time,” he said. The unraveling of the mysteries of DNA is exciting, but there is much to be learned. “It is like publishing a book where the words are random and do not make

sentences or paragraphs,” he said. “We are starting to put the sentences together in the genomics areas. We still don’t have paragraphs.” At Livestock Gentec, which is the University of Alberta’s genomics division, there is palpable excitement because this new direction in research could revolutionize animal development as well as human health. “With the tools we have now, the questions we can ask and the detail that we can look at problems and solutions we can create, are pretty amazing,” said Graham Plastow of Livestock Gentec. Genetic selection is not new. More than 20 years ago, the hog industry grappled with a meat quality problem known as pale, soft exudative pork. Canadian researchers worked out the causative mutation for porcine stress syndrome and over time hogs were selected to prevent this problem.

GROWING WITH YOU » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Computing power doubles every 18 months, and as more knowledge is gained, selection for specific valuable qualities has shifted from pinpointing a single trait to multiple traits. Genomically enhanced breeding values allow young animals to be scanned at birth so that more value can be derived earlier when qualities such as improved growth, better disease resistance or feed efficiency are found in individuals. “Where genomics can really add value is for things that are difficult or expensive to measure,” Plastow said. “It doesn’t really matter if anybody understands it if the product is better.” Enhanced genetic selection does not mean straying from good management. Feed, the environment and good animal husbandry are still needed so that individuals can achieve their highest genetic potential. “If we selected for animals that were healthier, we might be able to get away with a bit less management precision, but that is a dangerous route to do.” Besides improved growth or efficiency, future generations of animals could be made resistant to certain parasites or serious diseases. Healthier animals could be selected with improved genetic information or they could also be treated with genomically developed vaccines, said virologist Lorne Babiuk at the University of Alberta. Vaccines have been around for a century, but recent developments have made them more effective.

Genetic selection could contribute to resistance to parasites and diseases in livestock. | FILE PHOTO “We are able to identify the critical features of different disease organisms. We have been able to use genomics to produce large quantities of them. We have been able to combine different compounds to stimulate different immune responses. We know which arms of the immune response are required. The concept is not new. The reach is much further,” said Babiuk.

“Anytime you do something wonderful like that and it saves hundreds of millions of lives, it is a miracle.” Traditional vaccines are riskier, but drilling down to the basic chains of life with DNA provides a more stable product. For example, the polio vaccine is a live conventional vaccine. It is cultured many times and accumulates random mutations.


The vaccine back mutates once a person receives it, and the patient could be shedding virulent polio virus into the environment. As a result, someone who is not vaccinated could get polio. “With genetic engineering, you could actually cut out the specific gene, which makes it very difficult for the virus or bacterium to acquire that gene,” he said. “In my mind, genetically modified vaccines are actually safer than conventional ones.” Improved adjuvents are available that stimulate the immune response so bacteria do not grow. This can prevent serious disease, especially in the developing world. Babiuk’s work on viruses has taken him to Africa, where scientists are working on significant diseases such as the mosquito born Rift Valley fever. “If it ever came to Canada, it would make West Nile Virus look like a Sunday picnic,” he said. Farmers look at the economics of vaccines and are quick to accept new treatments, as opposed to naysayers who reject them for a variety of reasons. However, Babiuk has seen evidence of widespread acceptance in the developing world. Many small land holders are women with a few goats and a family to feed. They can be convinced that keeping animals healthy keeps their families solvent. The research never stops. Thirty diseases have either emerged for the first time or reemerged in the last 30 years. About 70 percent affect several species. “As we continue to encroach on animal habitat, diseases that were circulating within the animal popu-


lation away from humans, we now get exposed to them. That is how they emerge,” Babiuk said. The ability to introduce new vaccines and antibiotics have helped elevate livestock production to the level of efficiency seen today, said McAlister. “If we removed some of those things, we wouldn’t be able to raise animals like we do today,” he said. “A lot of those things have led to the improved economics and economies of scale which we have seen.… Some people are advocating we need to go back to the old systems because they are more healthy, but I don’t think they really were.” Producers who may have once raised a herd of 50 steers on the farm could have lacked consistency because of their breeding background, health care or feeding program. Modern systems deliver well mixed rations, better health and improved welfare for cattle, poultry and hogs. Science helped make improved animal husbandry more meaningful so that producers could see its benefits. McAlister credits modern computing power for its ability to collect and analyze significant amounts of data. “We do experiments now that use so much data, that without a computer I could never analyze it in my lifetime,” he said. The information is not lost and scientists can go back for review and come up with different conclusions or reassess their earlier findings. “All the data is stored and we can go back in the future and derive more information than what we were originally capable of doing when we looked at it the first time,” he said.

ISSUE DATE: AUGUST 17, 1933. The Young Co-operators pages provided a forum for young people to tell their stories and connect with their peers.

Young writers submitted stories and poems that reflected their life and times in rural communities across Canada. Some, like “Mexico Shorty,� left, sent photos while others, bottom, showed off their published works. The club rewarded the prolific and included many in banquets and tours like this one in Saskatoon in 1960, below.



Tommy came to us one dark, bleak winter night. The wind blew the snow in swirling gusts and it was cold, so very, very cold. Towards midnight the dog barked in an angry nagging voice, and in the morning we found poor Tommy with his foot in a rabbit trap. For weeks we nursed the poor frozen paw, but in spite of it all, he lost it, several months later. It was very amusing to see him hop along, so quick and clever on his three legs, faster than any of his four-legged brothers. Tommy was just a cat, but so different, He seemed almost human in his ways, quite reserved, for never once when he was with us did he allow himself to be petted. He was

naughty once and tried to get on the table. He was put out and never again did he try to ow enter, but always sat there at the door, his low cry ringing out. After that a great change came over Tommy. For days, his low plaintive voice was heard, reminding us of a human voice crying out in the night. One night he left his usual place and came to each of us in turn, climbed in our laps and allowed himself to be stroked. Then he limped away to the door and once more uttered his disconsolate cry. In the morning he was gone and we never saw him again. Did he know, that night, that he was leaving us forever? We missed him terribly, and even now, often speak of his almost human ways.

GETTING INVOLVED. Young people from farms across the Prairies created their own writing fraternity in the pages of the WP. | BY KAREN MORRISON, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


Voices expressed through WP’s Young Co-operators


or Pat Katz, seeing her name in print never gets old. The Saskatchewan author of five books credits The Western Producer’s Young Co-operators Club with launching her writing career, inspiring dreams and helping them come true. “Each time one rolls off the press and into my hands, I am just as thrilled as I was that first time my scribbles appeared in your paper,” she wrote in a recent Tell Us Your Story entry celebrating the newspaper’s 90th year. Katz, whose penname was Princess Dale, was one of hundreds of prairie kids who joined the writing fraternity, overseen by editors called Bluebird and Sister Ann. It was originally created in 1927 by women’s editor Violet McNaughton, who felt children should have their corner of the newspaper. The youth section, which featured fiction, non-fiction, poetry and photography, evolved into Young Readers and finally Kidspin, which was dropped when the magazine Western People was discontinued in 2000. For former Alberta YCers such as Carol MacKay (Peppermint Patty) and Elaine Thomas (Shirt Tail), the club constituted a big part of their lives. MacKay, who grew up near Ryley in the 1970s and 1980s, said YC taught her how to submit writing samples and be patient while eagerly waiting to see her material in print. It bolstered her confidence in sharing and critiquing writing and introduced her to the editor-writer relationship, skills that have served her well as a poet, children’s writer and book reviewer. Thomas wasn’t sure where she would be without it, saying she struggled to find something to excel at during her adolescence on a dairy farm. “My life was fairly narrow,” she said. “We were isolated.” An active member for more than a decade, she earned more than 100 points, scribe and master scribe

The YC Club gave farm children like Elaine Thomas a sense of belonging and, combined with her longtime 4-H involvement, strengthened her self-confidence and skills. She called writing a retreat from a busy household of girls. | ELAINE THOMAS PHOTOS

Thomas says only two awards hang in her office: a journalism diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and a Young Co-operators certificate. The rest are packed away in trunks. stamps, served as a junior and senior leader, organized a rally near Calgary, participated in the postmark, joke, recipe and Fraternity of Friends exchanges and was the quilt block exchange central. Thomas said life revolved around farm chores, and there was no opportunity for school activities and sports, something at which she wasn’t that good. “Our school was big in sports. If you’re not doing sports, nobody knew you existed,” she said. Moving to Calgary to attend high school was overwhelming and diffi-

cult, but the constants in her life were her books, the YC Club and words of encouragement from the editor. She went on to a career as vicepresident of communications for Enron after a start in weekly newspapers and trade magazines and today lives in La Grange, Texas, where she helps people write family histories. She said only two awards hang in her office: a journalism diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and a YC certificate. The rest are packed away in trunks. “I never would have had an inkling that I was capable,” Thomas said.

For Katz, the YC Club “was a conduit to the rest of the world.” The 1950s were more isolated for farm children who made infrequent trips to town, she said. The YC Club gave her a sense of belonging and, combined with her longtime 4-H involvement, strengthened her self-confidence and skills. She called writing a retreat from a busy household of girls. “For me, sitting on the prairie writing, that really planted the seed for me,” said Katz, whose career has included professional speaking engagements, writing and painting. “It’s just another form of creative expression,” she said. MacKay said YC provided a safe and creative outlet for aspiring writers, a far cry from the online sites that today’s youth use to connect with others. “The major difference between the YCC and the YouTube experience is that the latter is not moderated and therefore the feedback tends to be harsher than the kinder, gentler variety YCs would have experienced when the junior leader or poet laureate would judge the monthly submis-

sions,” she said. “Feedback on YouTube is an immediate impulse, whether wildly positive or scathingly negative.” A YC Facebook site was launched in recent years but is no longer active. MacKay said Sister Ann was kind when she held back submissions that weren’t good enough for publication, and these opportunities to experience rejection served to toughen her skin for the inevitable rejections as an adult writer. Australian Nicola Stratford, who served as Sister Ann and youth editor in the 1980s, used to imagine the YCers in their homes nibbling on the pen end as they worked on a plot twist or rhyme or on drawing the legs of the pony just right. “I believed then, as I do now, that the contact the kids had with the paper and with each other was very special, uniting them in their shared challenges, joys, interests and ambitions. “I suspect that knowing that another girl, somewhere outside of Kindersley, Sask., loved her horse as much as did a young lady living in Stettler, Alta., was comforting when those feelings of age-based and geographical isolation set in during a long winter,” Stratford said. Elaine Shein, the associate managing editor for DTN in Nebraska and the former editor of The Western Producer, liked the slower pace of the YC Club. “You could think things through,” she said. “There’s so much noise out there.” Opportunities for in-person meetings, rallies and banquets were rare but did bring some YCers to the newspaper’s office in Saskatoon. “I made friendships from YC that I have to this day,” said Shein, who was in the wedding party of a YC friend. Meeting the WP publisher also influenced her decision to enter journalism. “It’s where I first learned to accept criticism and turn it into something positive,” she said of YC. “It helped a lot of us in our careers.”

BIG HORSES GIVE WAY TO BIG HORSEPOWER. The evolution of tractors and The Western Producer followed the same furrow. | BY RON LYSENG, WINNIPEG BUREAU



Dozens of tractor brands meld into few

Ford didn’t always have better ideas


reaking prairie sod and seeding crops at the turn of the century required big horses and strong men to work them. However, those big strong Canadian work horses and the prairie farm boys who drove them were swallowed up by the thousands in the muddy trenches of the First World War. By necessity, pistons began replacing muscle tissue. One primitive tractor could replace several horses and men. When it wasn’t in use, the tractor required no food, water, shelter or wages. Before the First World War, Henry Ford was quoted as saying he wanted to “lift the burden of farming from flesh and blood and place it on steel and motors.” Ford was born and raised on a small farm near Detroit, so he knew whereof he spoke. “Lift the burden” is exactly what Ford commenced to do in 1917 when he introduced the world’s first affordable, mass-produced tractor. Media at the time said his 20 horsepower Fordson Model F tractors could do the work of four mules. A U.S. government test concluded that a farmer would spend 95 cents per acre breaking sod with a Fordson Model F. In comparison, feeding eight horses for a year and paying two drivers would cost $1.46 per acre. Clearly, the future of farming belonged to the tractor, but Ford was only one of many with the same vision. Hundreds of small factories and machine shops tried their hand at designing and building a farm tractor from before the First World War through the Depression years. Bad engineering, lack of financial backing and Depression era economics put an end to nearly all these ventures. The story of what happened to the dozens of tractor brands once available on the Canadian Prairies reads much like the begat verses in the Bible. Some tractor brands mated with other brands and prospered while others fell by the wayside and disappeared forever. Still others died and then were born again, but under the same name, primarily for commercial reasons. Was there ever a truly Canadian tractor? According to the June-July 1985 issue of Gas Engine Magazine, the simple answer is no. “It is extremely doubtful that any tractor ‘Made in Canada’ was actually a totally Canadian product,” the magazine said. “In some cases that have been studied, ‘Canadian content’ was little more than the name painted on the sides. Even that is doubtful in cases where the tractor was the spitting image of the recognized American make.” Geography was the enemy of any Canadian company wanting to build and sell tractors. Prairie grain farm-

Tractors have come a long way since the Fordson days. This Challenger tractor comes equipped with rubber tracks for better traction. | CHALLENGER PHOTO ers needed big heavy powerful tractors for plowing and running threshing machines. Eastern farmers needed small, nimble tractors suitable for hills, small fields and dairy operations. Canada was clearly divided into two distinct tractor markets. Before the First World War, the Sawyer-Massey company of Hamilton, Ont., built monster tractors that it shipped to the Prairies. It had gradually converted its steam-driven tractors to gasoline-powered tractors with a heavy channel iron frame and a slow-speed kerosene engine coupled to big cast iron gears. Meanwhile, the Medicine Hat Machinery Co. in Alberta was building small tractors that didn’t have enough power to bust prairie sod, so it shipped them to Eastern Canada. Some Ontario engine manufacturers such as Gilson and Goold, Shapley & Muir installed their engines into gear driven frames as a way to sell more engines. Another early engine builder was Sylvester Brothers, which installed an engine into a gear driven frame

and then took it the next step by adding a threshing machine. The result was a crude combine. The Ontario Agricultural Museum has a Chase tractor with serial number 36. Researchers discovered that this small company built tractors for a while just across the tracks from the massive Massey-Harris factory in Toronto. Many of the pioneer tractor companies disappeared without leaving a trace of their existence. Looking back, they may have been the victim of two separate trends taking place before the First World War. Steam powered tractors and stationary engines were large and inefficient. Internal combustion petrofueled engines were more efficient, but the steam people were slow to accept the new technology. The other factor is that local machine shops had turned out power plants and engine driven machines for some time, many of which were of the highest quality. However, transforming hand-built, one-off machine shops into high volume production lines was beyond

the comprehension of many business owners. Tractor historians explain that hundreds of different tractor brands have been assembled in Canada, but most of them were made with engineering and major components from the United States. The notable exception of course is Versatile, which came on the scene in 1966 and has become an internationally known brand. Tractor aficionados will say the first authentic Canadian tractor was the Oliver-Cockshutt. Cockshutt began as a plow manufacturer in Brantford, Ont., in 1877. It’s not a deep history factor because it didn’t branch out into the tractor business until 1946, when it built 441 units. However, the company busted out of its plow shear mould in 1948 when it sold 10,665 tractors across Canada, establishing itself as a true Canadian company. Alternative fuel sources are nothing new. Cockshutt engine options in the late 1940s included gasoline, diesel, distillate or liquefied petroleum gas.

Henry Ford and his Fords on Model F did for tractors what the Model T did for automobiles. The Model T replaced horses on the roads while the Model F replaced horses in the field. And that’s a good thing. However, mass production in its most primitive form can be a bad thing. By 1925, more than 500,000 Fordson tractors were working on farms in Canada, the United States and Britain. Engineering expertise wasn’t what it is today, and safety standards were unheard of. Consumer concern over safety isn’t a new movement. The earliest Fordson tractors had the worm gear located above the rear axle plane, just under the driver’s seat. The heat was unbearable. Drivers could not cope. To answer the concern, Fordson engineers relocated the worm gear below the rear axle plane. This solved driver discomfort to a certain degree, but it created an all-new hazard. In the new configuration, the reaction through the transmission would flip the tractor backward in a split second when a towed implement struck a buried stump or boulder. One weekly publication printed that it knew of 136 farmers who had been killed by the improved Fordson tractor up to August 1922. Fordson continued to be a major force in the global tractor market for decades. Then research on the Fordson F had come to a halt. Ford himself was caught up with new car designs and V8 engines for a number of years. This interlude gave International Harvester and General Motors the opportunity to leap frog ahead, forcing Ford to drop Model F prices from $750 to $395. By this time, the Model F was produced only in Ireland, with units shipped back to North America. By 1938, Ford had become interested in tractors again. He decided to co-operate with Harry Ferguson in the development of an all new FordFerguson N9. This tractor was designed specifically to regain top position in the world market with standard features such as a threepoint hitch, rubber tires, power takeoff, Ferguson hydraulics, battery, generator and electric start. Thinking he had trounced the other builders, Ford publicly stated upon introduction of the N9 in 1939: “Our competition is the horse.” The “old” Fordson tractor that most farmers will be familiar with is probably the 2N, of which 500,000 were sold in North America between 1947 and 1952. The Fordson name disappeared in 1964. The modern history of Ford tractors include the purchases of Sperry-New Holland and Versatile and the 1991 agreement with Fiat.



then EXCERPT | NOVEMBER 21, 1929

DESPAIR The stock market had collapsed. For days a panic of selling had forced quotations to levels below the most tragic dreams of the speculators. Great financiers had attempted a rescue: great banks assured the public that all was well, but in spite of everything the prices had fallen and fallen, and hundreds of thousands of people sadly realized that what they imagined to be a nest egg, had hatched out a viper, venomous and agile. That was the situation on that November evening, when John Wellstang sat on the edge of his bed in his great farm house not far from Tregarva; he sat with his head in his hands and his feet on the floor. But his fingers pressing against his tight eyelids could not shut out the figures which stared up at him from the litter of papers on the floor. He groaned. What right had little printed figures on cheap newsprint to hold him unhappily in their baneful power on that bright autumn afternoon? … He scribbled a little note. He stuck it, with some money he took from his pocket, into an envelope, addressed it, and went down to the post office. As he saw the letter slip into the dim recesses of the post office box, he heaved a great sigh of relief. He was a free man. John Wellstang had never bought a share of stock in his life. No, that is not what had been worrying him. His trouble was that he had been a subscriber to The Western Producer for many years and that afternoon, just after reading the most recent copy, the little address slip caught his eye and conveyed to him the ghastly information that he was no longer a “paid-up” subscriber. He is now.

GREAT DEPRESSION RECEDES. The defining disaster of prairie agriculture drove farmers’ frugality for generations. Today, a new, more positive approach has taken hold. | BY WILLIAM DEKAY, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


Look on the bright side but remember the past


oday’s younger farmers have an attitude toward farming and life that grew out of the wave of good fortune they have experienced in the past decade. It’s similar to how frugality was instilled in prairie farmers and their descendants in the wake of the Great Depression of the 1930s. “People tend to anchor on recent experiences, which serves as a cue when thinking about a problem,” said Murray Fulton, professor at the University of Saskatchewan’s JohnsonShoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. “If all you’ve known is prosperous times, it’s very difficult to think about worlds that aren’t like that. You can think about them but you don’t give them enough weight, attention. You essentially tend to ignore them and you make decisions as if those things are not going to occur or in high probability.” On the other hand, Fulton said the group that went through the 1930s had a different mindset. “They were primed in a different way and I think would make very different decisions,” he said. It’s generally understood that the Great Depression was an era defined by desperation and frugality. It was a time one’s needs and wants

were a matter of straight-forward survival, especially on the Prairies. The New York stock market collapse of Oct. 29, 1929, is generally seen as the beginning. Farmers on the Canadian Prairies were especially hard hit by the collapse of wheat prices, which soon led to the policies of the Canadian Wheat Board. Meltdown and ensuing mayhem in world financial markets coincided with widespread drought . Dust bowl conditions prevailed as farmer’s savings and spending shriveled up. Farmers who stayed on their farms were not considered unemployed. Two-thirds of the Prairies’ rural population was on relief. For the sake of their hungry families, many farmers swallowed their pride and accepted emergency handouts such as dried salted fish from the Maritimes and apples from Ontario. The Dirty Thirties shaped Red Williams, first as a boy and then as a man. It affects him still. Born in 1925, Williams grew up on a farm at Shamrock, Sask., near the heart of the dust bowl. “One year my father didn’t get enough seed back to plant his next year’s crop. To make feed to carry the cows through the winter, my father

harvested Russian thistle,” he said. Etched in his memory is the day he and his father were walking to town using the railroad. Williams said he begged his father for a nickel to buy a bag of popcorn that came with three shiny marbles, but to no avail. It was many years later that his father, who remembered the incident, explained why. “ ‘I didn’t have five cents to give,’ ” he said. “You can imagine having the responsibility for a family and not having one coin in your pocket,” said Williams. Williams, a former professor in the University of Saskatchewan’s agriculture college, agrees with his children when they accuse him of still having a depression mentality. “You’re very careful about what you buy. If you absolutely don’t need it, you don’t have it,” he said. There’s no question for him that it’s a different attitude for young farmers today. He said their appetite for innovation and risk taking is better rewarded than it was for entrepreneurial farmers of the 1930s, who made due with fewer resources. “They were salt of the earth, hard working and knew their business right down to the details, except that new ideas that were being pushed in to increase productivity were ver y hard to accept. They

weren’t trusting,” he said. “For example, my uncle used to absolutely refuse to have fertilizer. It was just beyond his thinking.… Till the soil and that was it. To tell him that (the soil) was running out was heresy. That’s the kind of mentality in those days. My Dad was the same. They learned their lessons sitting on the back end of a plow and that was all you needed to know.” According to Fulton, disbanding the Canadian Wheat Board and phasing out federal Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration programs signal that many of the impacts caused by the Depression may have run their course. “Today, we’re seeing adapting and changes. In the credit union system we’re now seeing large credit unions being formed as mergers take place. There are also mergers taking place in the retail sector,” he said. “A legacy on the environmental side was the formation of the PFRA. One could argue that the PFRA was actually really critical in the subsequent development of zero tillage. They had that mandate of finding alternative methods of cultivation.” Twenty-seven-year-old Brennan Turner agreed that the mindset of his grandparents’ and parents’ farm generation largely does not exist in his generation today.

Williams said the buggy was a step up for his family which didn’t own an automobile until after the Second World War. | WILLIAM DEKAY PHOTO

“This is a broad statement, but my generation is about instant gratification. We have social media. You tweet, you Facebook. If you’re not happy with what’s done immediately, why then you just move on if you don’t get what you want,” said Turner, founder of FarmLead, an online grain marketing service based in Saskatoon. Turner agreed that the older generations were more skeptical, particularly about new technology. However, while older generations are perhaps less trusting, younger generations are perhaps too trusting. “I don’t know if it’s a technology thing. Maybe part of my generation has come to trust the internet … maybe faster to trust something. Again, that instant gratification. If it works for me, I’m going to do it again and again,” he said. “I think my generation is more open to change. More open to listening. More open to thinking how things could benefit them.” Turner grew up in Foam Lake, Sask., hearing first hand accounts passed down from his grandparents and parents about the day-to-day hardships and lessons learned from the Depression. “As my grandfather literally always said, ‘always expect the unexpected.’ That’s been passed down the generations. I carry it with me to prepare for the rainy day. Don’t spend the extra margin that you made,” he said. “I think how it correlates today in what we’re seeing in land prices and the potential farmland price bubble. It’s one of those things, my generation at least, the guys born 1975 onward, maybe don’t have as much of that feeling. It’s been hard sometimes, but it hasn’t been terrible.” He said his parents’ and grandparents’ hard work ethic made it possible for his generation to have the desire, freedom and money to follow their ambitions. “There are opportunities out there. Chase your dreams because I didn’t get to necessarily,” he said of his parent’s generation in particular. To that end, Turner felt soon after the deregulation of the CWB that it was the right time to create a business using the digital marketplace for buying and selling grain. “My parents support my endeavor to start this company, even though it’s fairly risky,” he said. “At the same, with the adaptation of technology in the agriculture industry, there is a need for something like this in the marketplace.” Turner sees what he describes as a big mind shift happening with younger farmers being more open to risk mitigation.

THE 2014



The Newly Designed Forester earned a remarkable 88 points out of a possible 100, this score is 11 points higher than Honda CRV, 13 points higher than Toyota Rav4, and 14 points higher than Mazda CX5. The Subaru Forester the logical choice. CONSUMER REPORTS TOP SCORE FOR PREDICTED RELIABILITY














It’s not hard to see why. With more cargo space, better fuel efficiency and Subaru’s symmetrical full-time AWD, you’ll be ready for any adventure. Combine that with X_MODE*, a newly developed system that helps you navigate the most brutal terrain, and you’e got an SUV unlike any other.

GROWTH OF AN INDUSTRY. Growth promotant use in beef cattle was introduced in 1954, and today has widespread acceptance in North America. But is the tide turning? | BY BARB GLEN, LETHBRIDGE BUREAU


Growth promotant advantages led to quick adoption



Even more beef per pound of feed — faster gains — with New Ful-O-Pep 32% Beef Cattle Concentrate with DIETHYLSTILBESTROL. Here’s what it is — Stilbestrol is a hormone-like ingredient — not a nutrient —that acts as an accelerator to growth and live weight gains of beef cattle. Here’s what it means to feeders —Stilbestrol in Ful-O-Pep 32% Beef Cattle Concentrate will increase appetites, help keep cattle on feed, improve gains and feeding efficiency of both steers and heifers. See us for full particulars.

t’s all well and good for cattle to be Ful-o-Pep, as promoted in an advertisement in the May 10, 1956, issue of The Western Producer. But then, as now, beef cattle growth promotants were more about feed efficiency and extra pounds than about animal vigour. And then, as now, some people were leery about using added hormones in beef production, either as feed additives or implants. Diethylstilbestrol, a form of estrogen used in human medicine, was first distributed as an animal feed additive in 1954 but was later pulled off the market for both livestock and humans because of human health concerns. Researchers at the time determined that the risk to humans from eating beef from animals given the additive, a.k.a. Ful-o-Pep, was virtually nil. In similar fashion, today’s beef cattle researchers make the same assertions about hormones in beef from cattle given growth promotants. Hormone implants became available to the cattle industry in 1956 and have since become widely adopted in commercial beef production. “I suspect implants were adopted pretty quickly because the apparent advantages in terms of growth rate and carcass weight and feed efficiency would be pretty quickly apparent to people,” said Reynold Bergen, science director with the Beef Cattle Research Council. Fifty or 60 years ago, it took 10 pounds of feed to generate one lb. of gain on a beef animal. Today, the ration is six to one, partly because of growth promoting implants. Additional factors include improved cattle genetics, improved feed quality and feed processing, and greater understanding about rations. “Between 1977 and 2007, and the trend has continued, we’ve produced 11 percent more beef from 20 percent fewer cattle,” said Bergen. “If we took growth promotants out of the system right now, the key number seems to be 10 percent. We would need 10 percent more cattle, 10 percent more land, 10 percent more feed and then seven percent more fuel, seven percent more fertilizer and we would produce 10 per-


cent more manure and 10 percent more greenhouse gases.” Better feed efficiency and economics were the original reasons for using growth promotants, but Bergen said there are also environmental benefits. As well, growth implants result in cheaper beef at the meat counter because of lower production costs. Retail prices are eight percent lower than they would be other wise, according to Bergen’s figures. Yet there is consumer unease about use of added hormones in beef production. A study released in November at the National Institute for Animal Agriculture Symposium in Kansas City ranked hormone content in meat as one of the top consumer concerns, above humane handling and environmental impact issues. Carl Chomistek, a cattle producer in Rolling Hills, Alta., listened to consumer concerns about hormones a few years ago. He stopped using implants in his backgrounding and finishing operation when he received requests for beef with no added hormones. “We were hoping that by doing that we could extract a tiny bit of a premium out of the cattle that we were selling because I normally sell eight or nine weight (800 to 900 lb.) steers and heifers, March to April,” he said. “But we weren’t able to get anything extra for that, so in consultation with my veterinarian, he said, ‘you know, you’re throwing $20 or $30 bucks an animal away.’ ” Chomistek is using implants again, noting his customers didn’t seem to care and the production results speak for themselves.

HOG PRICES MAY HAVE PEAKED Although hog price forecasts are no more than an “educated” guess at this time, it seems safe to say they have probably reached their limit at $80 to $85 a hundredweight. This is the opinion of Jim Dawson, marketing economist with Alberta Agriculture, who points out that even though there is not enough production increase in sight over the next six months or so to depress prices, there are other factors to consider. These include: the likelihood of a plentiful supply of lower-priced beef well into the new year; cautious buying on the part of the consumers; lower seasonal demand during the winter; and the fact that eastern Canada is coming back into pork production faster than the west. “In view of these factors,” says Mr. Dawson, “it would be possible for prices to go back down to the low $70’s or even the high $60’s.”


ISSUE DATE: OCTOBER 2, 1975. Hog market analysts were speculating whether hog prices had peaked at $85 per cwt. with the grim forecast of a price drop of as much as $15 per cwt.





PEAK PRICES MAKE PLEASANT HEADLINES. And there’s no reason to think, even after the record-high crop and livestock prices of recent years, that the future won’t contain more Western Producer headlines about “peak,” “high” and “record” prices. | BY ED WHITE, WINNIPEG BUREAU


Hog prices surge and wane, but remain low


armers might not feel they are living in a golden era when they see those sorts of headlines. Somehow, the record highs don’t seem to have the impact that a farmer might hope for. It ’s a result of the difference between nominal and real prices, which disguises the brutal long-term reality of agricultural production, according to leading U.S. agricultural economist Darrell Good. “Prices generally tend to decline in inflation-adjusted terms,” said Good, a University of Illinois market expert. “There are periods when prices rise rapidly, but they do not persist. You just see a decades-long pattern of declining prices.” A Western Producer headline from October 1975 sagely noted “Hog prices may have peaked,” with $80 to

$85 per hundredweight prices marking a rally peak that threw lean hog futures prices far above their previous peak of $40 per cwt. Hog prices didn’t surpass $15 per cwt. from the 1920s to the early-1940s and then popped over $25 a few times between the mid-1940s and the late 1960s before beginning their surge into the $50 to $85 range that dominated the 1973-2008 period. Lean hog futures have surged higher than $100 per cwt. a number of times in 2011 and 2013, setting new all-time records. However, that’s only in nominal terms. Adjusted for inflation, the 1973-2008 period wasn’t a flat range but a steady trend downward. In 2008 terms, the $85 level of 1975 is actually equivalent to $340. Today’s “record” prices are equal in inflation-adjusted terms to the hog

prices of the early-to-mid-1990s. The same applies to crop prices. The 2008 and 2012 peaks in wheat, canola, soybeans and corn don’t seem so impressive when adjusted for inflation. For example, Chicago wheat prices higher than $10 per bushel appears to have shot to much higher highs in 2008 than the 1970s peaks of $5 to $7 per bu. However, when adjusted for inflation, the actual value of that same futures contract is only onethird of the mid-1970s level. With the peaks taken out of the picture, the trend for a century has been lower and lower real commodity prices, something Good expects to continue after the current period of nominal high prices has passed. It is possible that the long-term trend could be changing. The growing world population and its

increasing food demand could drive a trend of increasing real prices. And climate change could make crop and livestock production less productive, driving up prices because of smaller supplies. “But so far we haven’t seen that materialize,” said Good. “Until it does, I think we have to remain skeptical. The history is that production has responded and we have been able to keep up with demand without pushing real prices to new levels.” Good said producers have responded by increasing production and lowering their per unit costs. As well, input costs have also been decreasing in real terms. That response will likely continue if the long-term trend of lower real prices continues: producers will continue to increase productivity while demandinglower input prices.

NO ‘RECORD HIGHS’ HERE Hog futures in current dollars may be higher than in the 1970s but when adjusted for inflation, they have eroded significantly.

ELECTIONS OF WHEAT POOL DELEGATES TO BE RUSHED WITH ALL POSSIBLE SPEED Nominations for the election of Wheat Pool delegates poured into the central office until the last moment on Saturday, June 21st, at which time over a thousand had been received. As each nomination paper was signed by at least six other contract signers, over seven thousand real dirt farmers have taken part in the pre-election work. This is almost one-sixth of the total number of Wheat Pool members, and is evidence that the movement has touched the heart of the farmer’s problems as nothing has ever done before.


THE ALBERTA POOL CAMPAIGN NOW FORGING AHEAD RAPIDLY Provincial wide organization is now securing large numbers of signatures for five year contract — many districts signing up 100 per cent. CALGARY, Aug. 22nd. — In all parts of Alberta where wheat is grown, the campaign to secure members in the Alberta Co-operative Wheat Producers, Ltd., to use the corporate name of the Alberta Wheat Pool, commenced on Monday August 20th, and is being carried on with all possible energy and speed. The equivalent of at least 50 per cent. of the Alberta wheat acreage of 1922 must be placed under contract to the Pool, in order to make the contracts binding.

ISSUE DATE: AUGUST 27, 1923 & JUNE 26, 1924. WP coverage dating from the mid-1920s illustrates the high level of farmer interest in collective pooling.

Orderly marketing, that is placing only enough of the product on the market to meet the immediate and active demand, is the only thing that will give the grower a voice in determining what the price will be, and remove the curse on agriculture that places the farmer at the mercy of the buyers. The advance payment on wheat, made possible through government finance in dealing with an established marketing agency such as the Wheat Growers’ Associations, enables the farmers to hold their wheat, and sell it gradually.

COLLECTIVE MARKETING ERA ENDS. Prairie pools were once the dominant grain handlers. Today, big corporate players have replaced the pool model. | BY BARRY WILSON, OTTAWA BUREAU


Political, marketing ideology changes wipe out pools


n its infancy, The Western Producer was the voice of the exploding wheat pool movement on the Prairies. “The Alberta Pool Campaign Now Forging Ahead Rapidly,” screamed an excited front page headline Aug. 27, 1923. “The Saskatchewan Wheat Pool — the biggest thing the farmers of Western Canada have ever undertaken is the wheat pool,” said an advertisement for Saskatchewan Co-operative Wheat Producers Ltd. the same year, which matched the drift of the story coverage. The 1924 Manitoba Pool Elevators’ campaign was equally big news. Then The Western Producer lived long enough to chronicle the demise of the pool movement, first through a move away from the co-operative structure and a decline in farmer control and influence to finally being another grain company like all the others. And there is an argument in some quarters that the demise of the pools had much broader effects than just a weakening of farmer influence in the industry. Brian Oleson, for one, is convinced it was a precursor to the demise of the CWB single desk last year. “The CWB could not survive without the pool democratic structure and farmer buy-in through a sense of ownership,” said the former vicepresident of corporate affairs at the board and now with the University of Manitoba. “The pools, when they dominated the prairie grain industry, gave the board its support base in the countryside.” Barry Senft, a former second vicepresident of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and now chief executive officer of Grain Farmers of Ontario, is skeptical of that argument. He said there has been a change in the political and marketing ideology of grain farmers that cleared the way for the end of the board monopoly, despite a core of farmers who remain adamant supporters of the CWB and pool models. “I don’t know that if the pools were in place today, things would have turned out any different,” Senft said. “I’d be surprised if it would have

Pools gave the Canadian Wheat Board a broad support base, some observers say. | changed anything because the pools were changing, too.” Still, these two former pool and CWB insiders have some theories on why the pools and then the board exited stage right. Senft remembers when Sask Pool was the dominant provincial grain handler with more than 60 percent of the crop and significant farmer loyalty. “It really was a sense of entitlement with ‘their’ company,” he said. “I remember growing up, if the local pool elevator filled and there was space in a competitor elevator, farmers would hold off delivery until there was space in their elevator.” Senft said Sask Pool’s consolidation

program of closing elevators, the increasing power of management and the falling power or influence of farmers in the company eroded that religious-type loyalty. “There was a sense, I guess, that if they are not loyal to me, I won’t be loyal to them.” Then the pool became just another marketing option. The move into investing in companies down the value chain, such as a flour mill and Robin’s Donuts, was also controversial with some members. Senft said it was the right decision but managed badly by the pool. Oleson has a different take on that attempt to expand the company


focus away from the farmer base. “I remember having a Robin’s coffee one day and really thinking that this was a symbol of how the company was moving away from farmers,” he said. “It seemed like a metaphor for going down the road to destruction.” Meanwhile, the grain industry was consolidating and becoming dominated by bigger corporate players. As well, the co-operative structure had a difficult time accumulating the capital it needed for investment and expansion, and farmer politics were changing. As well, most farmers became more familiar and comfortable doing their own marketing for non-board crops

such as canola and pulses as wheat and barley declined as a percentage of prairie production. “They realized they could learn the marketing, appreciated the cash flow and that affected the attitude,” said Senft. Farmer numbers were also falling and the political influence declining both within the pool and generally. He remembers fondly the days when politicians were loathe to announce a grain policy without getting prairie pool blessing. “Those were the glory days,” he said. “Farmers had power. They felt they could control their market collectively. Obviously this is a different era.”

ISSUE DATE: OCTOBER 2, 1975. Pulse crops were beginning to gain popularity across the Prairies, and new crops like fababeans were planted in Manitoba as a feed crop.

A fledgling fababean market has begun to develop in Manitoba this summer, with one feed mill ready to use beans, other feed mills prepared to consider purchases and Japanese buyers asking for up to 1000 metric tons next year. Fababeans offer high protein content which can be used as a replacement for soybeans and barley in animal feed rations and which are popular as human food in many parts of the world. This year, about 2000 acres of fababeans are expected to be harvested and used on Manitoba farms for feed and seed.

SIMPLE BEGINNINGS . It started with fababeans, and soon Prairie farmers were routinely adding lentils, peas and dry beans to their rotations. What is coming next for pulse growers? | BY SEAN PRATT, SASKATOON NEWSROOM


Researcher remembers pulse crop heyday


t’s a good thing Al Slinkard isn’t afraid of the cold. It was a bone-chilling - 40 C when the father of Canada’s lentil industry reported to work at the newly formed University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre Feb. 1, 1972. But he didn’t think twice about his decision to uproot his family from their home in northern Idaho and head north because the career opportunity was too good to pass up. “I looked at the department and there was only about five people in it and 46 million acres of cropland under cultivation,” he said. Slinkard was tasked with developing new lines of peas for the province’s growers, but the centre also wanted him to work on developing other special crops for a province that had become far too reliant on lowpriced wheat. Growers in Slinkard’s home state planted both peas and lentils, so the pea and grass breeder, who was recruited from the University of Idaho, knew the crops had similar climatic requirements. According to Statistics Canada, 64,000 acres of peas were grown on the Prairies in 1972. It didn’t track lentils at that time, but Slinkard estimates there were 10,000 to 15,000 acres of the crop. He obtained the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s collection of lentil varieties and grew them out to see which ones were suited for Saskatchewan. By 1975 he had identified 10 promising lines. Two of them looked really good. One was a large-seeded variety and the other a small-seeded variety. Slinkard didn’t want to release both so he picked one. “I remembered that consumers liked big and bright seeds, so I went with the one that had the biggest and brightest seeds,” said the 82-yearold retired breeder. He named it the Laird lentil after T h o m a s L a i rd , a f a r m e r f ro m Rosetown, Sask., who had given the Crop Development Centre a $25,000 grant to produce new crops for his area of the province. The variety was field-tested with

Pulses don’t like having wet feet and haven’t done as well as expected for the last couple years, but acreage is expected to rebound when the Prairies get back to drier weather. | FILE PHOTO producers in 1977. One grower in the Regina area planted 80 acres of lentils on summerfallow and another 80 acres on wheat stubble. Both crops yielded 1,800 pounds per acre. It was a major research breakthrough for the crop. “That indicated that we could grow lentils on stubble land and didn’t have to grow them on summerfallow,” said Slinkard. Another fortuitous development that year was the extensive drought that hit eastern Washington and northern Idaho, which were the main lentil growing areas of North America. Brokers had forward sold a bunch of the anticipated crop and were desperate to find lentils to fill those sales. They heard about the trials in Saskatchewan and came north, bidding up prices to 35 cents per pound. Farmers growing the experimental crop grossed $700 per acre for their

lentils that year compared to $100 per acre for wheat. “You can imagine, everyone wanted to grow lentils the next year,” said Slinkard. Laird lentils were commercially released in 1978 followed by the small-seeded Eston lentils in 1980. Saskatchewan Agriculture special crops specialist Dale Risula said the moment Laird lentils hit the market was the birth of a pulse crop industry that generated $1.7 billion in farm cash receipts last year. Saskatchewan now accounts for more than 50 percent of world pea and lentil exports. The timing was right for the introduction of lentils. Farmers were clamouring for a new crop because wheat markets were severely depressed due to global overproduction. “It was all negative returns that were shown on any of the farm budgets that

were done at the time,” said Risula. Acceptance was slow at first. There were a lot of disease problems, and farmers had trouble harvesting a crop that grew so low to the ground. “A lot of people were running into the problems more so than the benefits,” he said. Slinkard spent his winters on the speaking circuit encouraging farmers to experiment with the new crop. “I had one little catch (phrase) — A, B, C: anything beats cereals,” he said. The centre eventually introduced more disease resistant lines, and farmers started adapting their harvest equipment with floating cutter bars and pick-up reels and using land rollers to create a smoother soil surface. “They could afford this because of the high pr ice of lentils,” said Slinkard. Risula said peas and lentils slowly began to gain momentum in the

largest producer

province’s Palliser Triangle area “Up around 1990 it became very apparent that pulses were taking over,” he said. He lived in Moose Jaw at the time and farmers there were increasingly incorporating lentils into what had been a wheat and summerfallow rotation. By 1991 farmers were growing 600,000 acres of lentils and 500,000 acres of peas. This year they planted 2.38 million acres of lentils and 3.34 million acres of peas. “The impact has been huge,” Risula said. “It has been more than just income. It has been the health of the land.” However, acreage has been tailing off in recent years. Pulses are facing stiff competition from high-priced wheat and canola. They also have to contend with corn and soybeans, two relative newcomers to Western Canada. Risula said it has also been wet the last couple of years, and pulses don’t like having wet feet. He thinks acreage will rebound when the Prairies get back to the more familiar drier weather pattern. However, he said it is also possible that pulses may continue to lose ground to competing crops in Canada and cheaper Black Sea peas and lentils. “That’s why our research has to be focused on pulses that are higher in quality than those grown elsewhere.” SEE RESEARCHER REMEMBERS ON PAGE 63






ISSUE DATE: MARCH 5, 1959. Farmers descended on Ottawa carrying thick stacks of petitions to demand deficiency payments on their three main crops. It was one of the largest farm rallies of the time, and reporter Keith Dryden chronicled the experience for the pages of The Western Producer.


300,000 Strong These petitions carry the names of about 300,000 adult westerners who endorse the farmers’ request for deficiency payments on western wheat, oats and barley. … … The campaign for signatures and funds took place during some of the coldest weather on record. Some 21,000 unpaid, volunteer canvassers braved cold and snow to afford every rural resident an opportunity to back the campaign. The campaign called for a tremendous effort and close cooperation among thousands of people. Long hours, hard work and enthusiasm were accepted readily by volunteers throughout the west. Every person who contributed in any way to the success of the campaign is to be commended.


OTTAWA DELEGATION TO BE 1000 STRONG Four Special Trains Leave Regina, Saskatoon March 7 REGINA — More than 1000 delegates from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba will converge on Ottawa next week to present to the Government of Canada on March 10 one of the longest petitions in Canadian history. The petition carries more than 300,000 signatures of

farmers, business and professional men and workers. It requests the government to make deficiency payments on wheat, oats and barley delivered in western Canada during the last three years to provide grain producers with a more equitable share of the national income.

FARMERS RALLIED. Although Ottawa feared that rallying farmers were “a bunch of hayseed barbarians coming with pitchforks,” peace generally prevailed — and farmers seldom got what they wanted. | BY KAREN BRIERE, REGINA BUREAU


Tens of thousands of farmers participate in protests


t’s March 1959, and Keith Dryden is on a special Canadian National Railway train bound for Ottawa. T h e We s t e r n P r o d u c e r reporter is on assignment, joining carloads of prairie farmers, led by then-Saskatchewan Wheat Pool president Jack Wesson, who are on their way to ask prime minister John Diefenbaker for deficiency payments. His editor, Tom Melville-Ness, is on another train with the same purpose. Both men are, with the help of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool secretaries and Gestetner copiers, producing daily newspapers for distribution to the farmers on board. The approximately 1,100 farmers on the trains are just a few of the 302,000 who have signed petitions calling for assistance. “A remarkable feature of this mass delegation moving east to Ottawa is delegates’ unity of purpose,” Dryden wrote from CNR Train No. 2. “You can get in an argument anywhere on the train on any subject under the sun except deficiency payments. On that subject there is a unity of thought reminiscent of the western farmer’s regard for the Canadian Wheat Board.” Today, Dryden recalls that trip as a landmark in terms of rallies and lobbies. During his career he covered many smaller rallies but nothing quite like this one. “It was a huge undertaking, and an expensive one,” he said. “It didn’t get an awful lot of results but it made a lot of fuss for a while.” This was the third large farmers’ rally in Ottawa since the West had been settled and agriculture established. The first occurred in December 1910 when about 500 western farmers joined 300 from Ontario to push their way on to the floor of the House of Commons to demand federally owned grain elevators, a rail line to Hudson Bay and tariff reductions. “In 1910, farmers were not a mere special interest group to be blocked with iron fences and security guards,” wrote Garry Fairbairn, also a former WP editor, in his history of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, From Prairie Roots. “They were a majority of the population and agriculture was still the foundation of all things economic.” The 1912 Canada Grain Act was largely a result of this rally. Grain terminals at Port Arthur, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Calgary were built, and eventually Edmonton and Lethbridge had large inland terminals as well. The second major rally occurred in 1942, after Canada lost the western European market for wheat because of the war. Ottawa imposed delivery limits and measures to take wheat out of production, but farmers were mostly incensed over initial prices of 70

Sask Pool, led by Wesson, pushed for at least $1 per bu. and warned that farm income would drop to less than half of what it had been. However, the government responded with price controls and a wheat price frozen at 77 cents. Meetings, particularly one in March 1941 in Abernethy, Sask., led by former agriculture minister W. R. Motherwell, led to a wider protest effort. On Sunday morning, Feb. 1, 1942, two trains carrying 400 Saskatchewan farmers arrived in Ottawa. They also carried petitions with 185,000 signatures demanding higher wheat prices. Prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King and his agriculture minister, Jimmy Gardiner, were among those to hear the farmers’ concerns and while they were a sym-

pathetic audience, they didn’t meet the farmers’ demands. The Canadian Wheat Board initial payment was raised to 90 cents, but that is all they received. By the late 1950s, formal international wheat agreements had eroded and farmers increasingly looked to Ottawa for a domestic assistance program. The pool had begun arguing in 1956 for deficiency payments. Its position was that Ottawa should make such payments when farmers’ revenues fell below their fair share of the national income. They first asked for payments of 22 cents a bu. on 1955-56 deliveries and later 36 cents for 1956-57. However, the Diefenbaker government in 1958 instead promised a

comprehensive crop insurance program, more agricultural credit and special payments of $1 an acre up to $200 per farm. Pool delegates said that was inadequate, and more than 1,000 meetings were held between Dec. 15, 1958, and Jan. 15, 1959, to mobilize farmers and prepare for a trek. “The capital’s memories of the orderly 1942 March on Ottawa seem to have faded, for extensive security precautions were taken,” wrote Fairbairn. Recalled fieldman Ted Nyhus: “The fear in Ottawa was that they were a bunch of hayseed barbarians coming with pitchforks.” However, the March 1959 rally was peaceful, with nearly 1,100 delegates arriving with a 302,000-name petition urging deficiency payments.

Wesson was again a spokesperson, but this rally was prairie-wide, including the other pools, each province’s farmers’ union, three provincial federations of agricultural and United Grain Growers. “We went down to the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa and then over to the government building and met w ith members of Parliament,” Dryden recalled. “There were quite a number of distinguished people from the government of the time, and bigwigs from the opposition, too, because it’s always good politics.” However, the farmers didn’t get what they wanted. Instead, Diefenbaker again in 1960 provided the $1 an acre payment. The pools had also asked for a twoprice wheat system, which was denied. “Despite all the signatures and groups involved, results were disappointing,” wrote Fairbairn. Since those first three events, farmers have often held rallies to protest various issues, and many have been larger. The National Farmers Union, for example, has a long history of organizing protests, particularly to support the wheat board. According to a history of the organization published in 2009, rallies in 1970 saw 2,000 farmers march on the Alberta legislative building, 7,500 in Regina and 2,800 in a Winnipeg parade. D o m i n a n t t h e m e s t h a t h av e brought farmers together over the years included transportation issues, such as railway service and the future of the Crow freight rate, drought relief and free trade. One of the largest rallies occurred in Ottawa in 1992, when 30,000 farmers protested the potential loss of supply management under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade negotiations. In 1993, about 13,000 farmers packed Saskatoon’s hockey arena to demand a third line of defence payment, as well as to maintain the Crow rate and strengthen the CWB. More recently, protests focused first on keeping barley under the wheat board and then on the impending loss of the board’s single desk monopoly. Over the years farmers have rallied on Parliament Hill, in front of legislative buildings, in small cold rural halls and with tractors, grain trucks and combines on major highways. All of these have met with mixed results: the Crow was ended in 1995, the wheat board monopoly is gone and acreage payments never materialized. Dryden is philosophical about the results: “When you lean on the government, they won’t give you what you want necessarily, but they will decide that they have to do some sort of a thing to appease you.”





ISSUE DATE: APRIL 23, 1970. The prairie landscape was dotted with massive concrete grain silos, permitting farmers to store massive amounts of grain.


WHEAT “CURRENCY” When Three Hills, Alta., farmer Clayton Wilfred Thomas decided d to cut farming operations from 3000 00 acres to 160, he held an auction n at which wheat could be used ass payment on purchases over $500. 00. Auctioneer Dunc Peters is seen here with five-year-old combines which sold for 8000, 8050 and 7650 bushels respectively. No. 2 or 3 Northern wheat was accepted at value of $1 per bushel. Mr. Thomas, who plans to sell the wheat to livestock feeders, says sales receipts exceeded $100,000. He had expected a top of $70,000. An estimated 1000 Alberta and Saskatchewan farmers attended the auction. | PHOTO BY GEORGE A. YACKULIE JR.

GRAIN STORAGE TRANSFORMATION. The concrete silos of yesterday sit empty. New, lighter, more portable bins have replaced them as farmers learn more about safe grain storage and proper bin ventilation. | BY MARY MACARTHUR, CAMROSE BUREAU


The search for bigger, better bins


ITTERN LAKE, Alta. — It was a push to modernize that encouraged Walter McNary to build the concrete silo in 1974. His son, George, had returned home to farm and encouraged his father to modernize their 50-cow dairy from a pit silo to something more automated. For $24,000, the family built the 24 foot diameter, 70 foot high silo and added cross augers that brought the silage into the barn. “Farmers are always looking for something better,” Walter said about concrete silos scattered across the Prairies. However, it wasn’t long before the deficiencies of the upright concrete silo in the cold Canadian Prairies became clear. “There were a lot of problems with freezing. You had to watch if the frost got in, someone would have to go in and pick the silage off the sides,” he said. “When it was working, it worked pretty good, but freezing in the winter was the biggest headache.” The silage was sliced from the top and unloaded out a chute on the side of the silo and down into the barn. It was almost impossible for the auger to cut through the frozen silage and pull it onto the unloading auger and out the silo. McNary said the unloading auger lasted about seven years before it needed to be replaced for another $17,000. “ It s o u n d s c h e a p n ow , b u t i t wasn’t,” said Walter’s wife, Myrtle, who said the silo was the first concrete silo built in the area. The family used it on their Bittern Lake dairy until the dairy was shut down in 1992. Not wanting to see the expensive silo sit unused, Walter approached the University of Alberta’s Augustana campus to use the silo as a possible climbing wall. “It didn’t get very far,” said Walter, who has read articles about silos in the United States turned into apartments. “I’ve always figured it was a pretty big investment to sit and do nothing.” Former CFCW radio station owner Hal Yerxa built another pair of concrete silos down the road from the McNarys, and Wilf Weber, former manager of Weyga Farms in Camrose, was forced to deal with them when he bought the land in the late 1970s. “In the winter time they didn’t work too well,” he said. Winter wind from the northwest froze the moist silage to the concrete wall, forcing Weber or other staff to climb to the top of the silo and chip away at the frozen silage so that the unloading auger could peel the silage out and bring it down to the cattle.

“They were not made for these kinds of weather conditions,” he said. “The quality was good, but in the winter it froze to the sides and unloading was quite difficult.” Weber used the silos for storing silage for two years before calling it quits and making silage in onground pits. Harry Brook, crop specialist with Alberta Agriculture, said salespeople travelled the Prairies in the 1970s convincing farmers to build concrete silos or similar blue Harvestore silos.

“It really was very, very expensive way to store silage,” said Brook. “Just about every third person who bought one went bankrupt.” Cattle producer Dave Solverson said the tombstones, as they are sometimes called, cost more than a quarter section of land. “People invested way too much in these and ended up losing their farms.” Brook said the upright silos had little spoilage but it came at a high cost that wasn’t justified for low-value silage.

“You cannot pay for the cost of upright silos in your lifetime. Silage is still a low value commodity.” Ken Lewis of Lewis Farms in Spruce Grove, Alta., still uses one of their five silos to store high moisture barley. He plans to convert the others to dry grain storage in the future. Lewis said times have changed since the silos were built. In 1978, when the first two were built, farms made their own silage. The slower pace allowed the silos to be slowly filled as the silage was

blown to the top of the silo. Now, with larger farms and custom silage operators, the silage needs to be put in an easy fill pit. Silage freezing to the walls was an issue for Lewis, but he said it could be managed by putting the silage up at lower moisture and knowing how to work the silos. “The experience of employees about silos seems to have diminished dramatically,” he said. Lewis said they are not going to get technical when they convert their concrete silos into dry grain storage. They plan to knock a hole in the side at the height of an auger and fill it that way. They will use a grain vacuum to suck it out the bottom. Ron Goerz, a salesperson for Selmac Sales, which sold the equipment inside the Dominion silos, said six companies once sold silos to farmers. There were three main types of silo: Stave block silos, which were prepoured concrete blocks held together with clamps and parged inside with concrete. Concrete silos poured in sections. Metal silos with glass lining. Goerz said the upright silos were a transition between dry hay and pit silos. “They were great for the small beef or dairy farm,” he said. “Silage was just coming into its own. Before that it was mostly dry hay.” He said Dominion Silo sold 80 silos in 1979 but only 10 to 15 five years later. “It was an era.”



Knowing readers key to longevity » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Within a year of The Progressive’s establishment, the paper’s advisory board decided its name had unwanted political associations. A new name was needed, and pool director Harry Marsh of Herschel, Sask., brought forward a suggestion. In a 1973 history written by former editor Rusty Macdonald, Marsh recounted the meeting. “We wanted a name that would take in all western farmers, not just those of the pool or the pools and not just those in Saskatchewan. It had to be regional, covering Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta at least. And we didn’t want something that sounded like the name of a house organ, either. It had to be a newspaper, a real paper.” And so, since Aug. 15, 1924, this newspaper has been called The Western Producer. It has also earned a few nicknames over the years — the Western Depressor during tough agricultural times, and Western Seducer at tongue-in-cheek times. The reputation for employing good writers has continued throughout the paper’s history. Turner was an accomplished writer with an often sharp and frequently witty turn of phrase. “We hope to rub the feet of progress with the oil of humour so that the march may be the more triumphant if less wearisome,” he once wrote of his newspaper.

Grant MacEwan, a farmer, professor, author and ninth lieutenant governor of Alberta, briefly served as agriculture editor, and was in that role during the devastating foot-andmouth outbreak near Regina in 1952. Violet McNaughton, the first women’s editor at the Producer, wrote a column for many years and championed the cause of prairie women. She was influential in obtaining the vote for Canadian women, and in 1934 received the Order of the British Empire. Laughland also credits good writers as key to the paper’s longevity. “I think we just found good people to work there who have the genuine desire to inform farmers, and fortunately the idea of writing good factual material and not putting any puff pieces that a lot of other papers do, is really what makes the difference. There’s no other paper like it, really.” At its peak, the paper boasted a staff of 171 in 1973, which included those involved in composing, pre-press, printing, book publishing, insurance, travel services and the usual newspaper departments. Having shed all but the core news business, staff now number 62. A vital part of The Western Producer’s history is its 70 years of ownership by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, from 1931 to 2001. The paper, like its readers, suffered greatly during the Depression and an agreement with the pool allowed farmers to authorize a $2 subscription fee to be deducted from their final grain payment. When the world wheat price plummeted to 85 cents a bushel, both the Producer and the pool faced financial disaster.

90TH ANNIVERSARY Despite that, the pool saw the value of the Producer to its members and other prairie farmers. It took over the paper and its printer, Modern Press Ltd., in June 1931. The paper kept its independent editorial stance and was able to expand into Alberta and Manitoba in the late 1930s and throughout the 1940s and 1950s, which had always been the objective of the original owners. The newspaper’s relationship with SWP lasted until 2001, when the Producer, now separate from its printer, was purchased by Glacier Media Group in 2001. SWP was a giant player in the agriculture industry over most of the 70 years that it owned the Producer, so it was frequently necessary for the paper to report upon its owners. That presented challenges for editorial policy, and former publishers including Waldron, the late Robert Phillips and Allan Laughland had to defend it almost annually to the SWP board of directors. “Most of the time I had good support from the board,” recalls Laughland. “There would be the odd director on there that thought the paper should be more supportive of the wheat pool, especially with respect to the pool’s position on policy issues, and that we shouldn’t really give any space to the opposition, as they would put it. “We tried to argue that that really wasn’t in farmers’ interests. They needed both sides of the story. I would have to make some kind of a speech like that at almost every annual meeting.”

ALLAN LAUGHLAND, FORMER WP PUBLISHER

Pressure on the Producer to give favourable coverage to the SWP escalated when the Pool went public, Laughland recalls. That was shortlived when the giant grain entity faced financial ruin in the 1990s. “In my mind I could sort of see the company was starting to unravel. After awhile they had bigger fires to deal with than to try to twist my arm.” Many Producer readers seem to think the paper was once based in Winnipeg, but in fact Saskatoon has always been home base. In 1983, the roof over its offices on Millar Avenue fell in, causing massive damage, no injuries and an insurance lawsuit that dragged on for years. The paper continued to publish amid the wreck, and has maintained a near perfect record of publishing and distributing weekly newspapers throughout its 90-year history. Postal strikes and a Grain Services Union strike in 1994 disrupted delivery and content, but never halted the Producer’s run. The newspaper has offered other magazines and supplements over the years. Among them was Western People, a magazine launched in 1978

that was loved by readers but treated indifferently by advertisers, which eventually made it uneconomical to maintain. Two separate magazines, Farming and Acreage Life, have been launched and folded within the paper’s last 10 years. The Saskatchewan Seed Guide, Canola and Pulse Producer and Techs & Specs continue as part of the stable, and resources have most recently been allocated to the website, mobile apps and use of social media to reach readers and attempt to meet their information needs. Ultimately, it is knowledge of its readers and advertisers, coupled with employees’ inner fire, that maintain the Producer, says Jessome. “The sense of ownership here is incredible. It’s far beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. That’s without a doubt. I’ve been directly or indirectly involved in about 10 different publications and without a doubt this is the one that has the greatest employee engagement and pride of product. We do this because it’s important. We do this because we take pride in it.”

Seeing bright side, remembering past » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 “The younger generation is understanding that they can be successful but kind of looking over their shoulder a little bit in terms of trying to mitigate that risk through the various options available: crop and hail insurance and broadening their market strategy,” he said. “There are a lot of tech savvy guys out there.… I think that’s picking up simply because of the deregulation of the wheat board. “More and more guys are seeing that they have to expose themselves to more technologies and learn those new technologies or risk mitigation options because they have to find that better market and protect themselves even further.… Those products and services are certainly influential. Back in the Dirty Thirties, they were non-existent.” From his perspective, Williams can’t help feeling concerned with the march of technology and how it affects the individual producer. “Today, farmers are being led by the nose by technology. You can’t avoid the technology. You just have to adapt it. You can’t step around it. You come in with the new varieties or machinery and have to run with it,” he said. Fear of failure for producers also worries him — he’s seen it before. “It can happen very quickly, if you get the combination of markets and weather at the same time,” he said.

“You take a farmer now with these big farms, they are at high risk. When you’ve got a farm that will cost you a million dollars to put a crop in, you’ve got a million dollars sunk on speculation every year.” Fulton said both generations are incorrect. “They both suffer a bias. The people who came through the 1930s were too pessimistic about the way the world might turn out. In some ways, the people who have come through the last 10 years are probably too optimistic about the way the world is going to turn out.”

Growth promotants » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 51 “My gains last year were phenomenal. We were really, really happy with them. I think (implant use) certainly does make a difference.” That said, Chomistek would still like to eliminate their use. The Canadian burger chain A&W launched a campaign earlier this year called Better Beef, advertising product from animals that have not been given added hormone growth promotants. The campaign raised the ire of Alberta cattle producers because of its implication that other beef was inferior and because A&W had to buy much of its product from Mon-

tana and Australia to meet its needs. Chomistek said it illustrates a problem in the Canadian industry. “Maybe we producers aren’t looking as far as we should,” he said. “I think there’s a real disconnect between the cow-calf man, the backgrounders, the finishers, the packers and the consumer.” Canada’s two large meat packers buy and supply the commodity beef market and aren’t interested in separating implanted cattle from those that haven’t had implants. That’s why Chomistek is hopeful smaller packers will establish, survive and service what is now a niche market for beef with no added hormones. Bergen sees consumer unease with implants from another angle. “I think part of it is that consumers are a lot farther removed from food production than they ever have been before, in North America anyway, and so they don’t know how cattle are produced, or chickens or pigs, for that matter,” he said. “What I view as a little bit regrettable is, these things have been around for 60 years. There’s absolutely no indication that they pose any harm to human health and there’s real clear benefits on the environmental side and the industry competitiveness side.” He said consumers will ultimately decide on the future of beef cattle implant use. He thinks the supply of beef with no added hormones will increase because of the pending trade deal with the European Union. The EU, which doesn’t accept any other kind of beef, will likely want steaks and middle meats, which will

Researcher remembers pulse heyday » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 57 Chuck Penner, an analyst with LeftField Commodity Research, believes there is still a bright future for pulses. “Some of the low fruit in pulse markets has already been picked,” he said. Canada has done a good job of making inroads in traditional pulse consuming markets such as India and South America. “We had a situation where we could have fairly rapid growth because we were focusing on markets that already existed,” he said. “The next gains will be a little bit slower, but they’re out there.” Penner believes there is going to be a push to increase dry bean production in Saskatchewan. “That market is bigger than the lentil market, for sure,” he said. “Dry beans are a huge opportunity. It’s a matter of finding the varieties and then producing them in a cost effective way.” Penner also believes the increased consumer focus on sustainability in developed markets bodes well for pulses. He thinks pulse acres are going to

increase as Canada focuses more on serving niche markets rather than fighting it out with cheap Black Sea peas and lentils in bulk markets. He also said the naysayers have been around since Slinkard’s time. “And look at where we’ve come,” he said. “The people who say, ‘no, it can’t be done,’ are typically proven wrong.” Slinkard is also convinced pulses have a rosy outlook because there is an ever-growing need for vegetablebased sources of protein around the world. However, even he is surprised at how well the crops he introduced to the Canadian Prairies have performed. “I could not have conceived this amount of success when I first came here. It’s above and beyond my expectations,” said Slinkard. “I can’t believe it, but I’m sort of proud of it.”
